We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter pages.

In order to view all of today's banter, you have to visit our liverpool banter 2 to liverpool banter 10 pages linked at the bottom of this page.

Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

With our site (no Ed002). More posts will be going up on that Liverpool FC Banter site from now on.

Welcome to our new number 10, take a bow Sadio Mane!

I think this probably signifies the end of our pursuit or Fekir.

Hmmm. Allison looks a bit like Doni but with more hair on his face.

Somebody please tell me if the Fekir deal is comepletly of the table now as reported, or is it just the same old circus?

Best regards

You may think I'm daft for believing this but I think we'll still get him or at the very least try. I don't think we're done just yet. I'm not fussed either way though.

I agree with Salah. There is a rumour that Chelsea may be interested now (don't know how reliable that is), but I don't think we've heard the end of Fekir yet. It may be January, but I think Salah's right.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:40:05
I am still hopeful that we'll get him. I think we just need to sell a few players first.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:41:25
Our journos have been all over the place this summer, clearly being used as pawns. Klopp doesn't always tell the truth too, so I'm optimistic we'll still get him.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:43:43
To me it looks like we're playing dead, but will still bring one "10" in, however first the squad needs the trim - Origi, Ings, Studge, Markovic, obviously there was this Gini rumour, etc.

I would really like us to get Fekir and get 2 of Origi/ Ings/ Sturridge out, obviously we can't keep hoping how one is going to stop getting injuries or others turn world class, because they will not. And there certainly is space for Fekir, as Salah/ Mane positions aren't really covered by anything even remotely close to their quality, especially with Ox injured.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:48:56
I personally hope we stay clear.
If there's anymore business to be done (pending the forwards outgoings), I'd go for a flying machine winger / front 3 player.
Shaqiri / Keita can do the Coutinho role until another time.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:57:36
Mt gut feel is also that we will get him, towards the end of the window, and depending on what we raise from sales.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:17:03
Yeah I agree Zed, I think that's what it'll come down to, who we offload first and how much we can get.

Hi Eds, now that maybe the transfer side has come to a close (At least slowing down) . Was wondering if you had seen much of Fabinho prior to his joining? I haven't seen much and was curious how you rated him as a player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Fabinho had been at Monaco mainly as a RB and moved to DM - but it was his goalscoring from defensive positions that attracted many clubs to look at him and enquire after him. The concerns that put some off were all based around whether he would be able to adapt to a more competitive league. But there is no doubt a lot of clubs like him.}

20 Jul 2018 12:55:31
Thanks Ed, I'll keep a keen eye on him in preseason!
On the upside enjoyed watching Keita so far in preseason.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:04:24
REading good reports on Curtis Jones. Anyone with a bit more info on this lad? Best position, first team time this season?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:24:10
Bench, cup games and last 10 minutes for me. Only 17, plays older.

Great feet. Hard working and excellent in possession. Doesn't really make any errors and also works really hard.

Attacking mid best position although klopp has had him in sort of a free role these games.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:46:07
sounds tidy. Couldn’t be a reason Fekir is shelved? Not putting 17yr old under pressure but if he’s good enough etc.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 11:56:53
I'd like to ask a question, to Editor 1 or 2.

The departure of Pep Lijnders to NEC came as an unwanted surprise, his immediate return surprised me even more. Was there a particular reason he left NEC so pre-maturely? Did it not work out for him there or was the lure of a more prominent position at Liverpool impossible for him to turn down.

Many thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He was sacked by them.}

20 Jul 2018 11:34:47
Hi Ed's thanks for all your transfer news and information throughout this window. just a quick question apologies if it has already been asked. do you know if Liverpool are now finished with any more incoming players and will just concentrate on trimming the squad.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, they need to trim the squad. Klopp has apparently said he is sure Liverpool are done I do not see that as necessarily being the case.}

20 Jul 2018 12:31:09
Great question and thanks for the response.

That was exactly on my mind.

Love your work ED002.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:43:08
Klopp often contradicts himself and does the opposite to what he sais. Like saying last week Karius can be our number1, then we sign Alisson for 65M.

Having said that I can't see us spunking another 60M on you no who, it has already been suggested he may well wait until Jan.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:42:29

I’d be really surprised if we bought another player, we’ve spent a fair bit already!

On another note, as a Chelsea fan you must be concerned with all the Hazard to Madrid rumours.

I’m a die hard red Ed2 but love seeing top players come to Anfield and watching them live, it’s a loss when these players move abroad.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - (a) Ok. (b) I don't get concerned about players coming and going. (c) Players are transient employees of the club, the likes of Suarez, Coutinho etc. have simply moved on.}

20 Jul 2018 13:03:59
Ed002 you think the aforementioned #10 will complete their business or are you aware of there being any jot of truth in Liverpool wanting to sign a CB as well?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - What? I have explained over and over about this. If Klopp says Liverpool are done then you should ignore me and accept that.}

20 Jul 2018 10:53:20
Question for Ed001 and fellow reds would you keep dan Sturridge in squad or would you have him leave personally think he would be great for rotating the team around just those dam injuries are a concern you just can't rely on him staying fit
Up the pool.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - let him go. He needs regular football to get back to his best and he is not going to get it with us.}

20 Jul 2018 12:10:39
Let him go quickly on the cheap if need be and let him go to warm climate type country, such as Spain or Turkey or Italy, so as his muscle issue has more chance of success and less chance of injuries.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 11:18:55
But he wants to stay T. T.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 11:22:45
This might be our year. Forget what’s best for him are we more likely to challenge and win the games and points nessacary to win the league with him in our side sometimes and on the bench others? Yes. Keep him. He owes us not us owe him we’ve paid him all the years he’s been injured now it’s his time to give back! This year we have to put the club the team first. No doubt next year we’ll sell mo and balance the books this is our chance we have the team we have the squad and we have the manager.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 11:27:59
I’d let him go and have Brewster and Solanke as back up.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 10:53:00
Will any further acquisitions rely on departures? Obviously right now we have a number of players who are surplus to our requirements.
