Hi Ed, you explanied our interest in Ramsey and i've read on the Arsenal page the contract situation. Do you think we will push to sign him in January? Appreciate its a timing question but given his situation I woukd think it needs resolving one way or another quite soon.

Thanks in advance.

Agree3 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea about any "push" in January - which is when he can talk directly to any non English and Welsh sides, I suppose most notably Milan. But it is of course possible that Liverpool may look to a move for him in January, I am not aware of the club looking specifically at making changes this coming January. There is nothing to stop Liverpool making his representatives aware that they would be very keen to take him in the summer. As I have also said, I would not totally rule out the player staying where he is.}

10 Oct 2018 14:22:15
Thank you Ed. Appreciate your reply.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

I would think the most likely scenario is that he'll stay at Arsenal. I just can't envisage him moving away irrespective of the rumours and stories.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 15:56:32
He's started the season well and he's a talented player on his day, but I do worry about his injury record and past disrupting changing rooms. Still, he'd add goals to the midfield which is one of our only issues. Additionally, I saw similar criticism labeled at the Ox (though I was a fan) and Shaqiri (Who I was not a fan, but have been pleasantly surprised) so you never know.

I agree with you Reynard, I see the situation going more the way of Ozil then Sanchez.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - difference is Arsenal pulled out of the Ramsey contract talks.}

10 Oct 2018 16:21:45
Thats definitely worth noting Ed001. Ed002 stated that a general agreement was reached but that concerns were expressed over his "comportement", which lead me to believe that this may have been why Arsenal pulled out. I'm personally of the belief that this will result in Ramsey keeping his head down and getting to work, ultimately sealing the new contract. But you're right, its definitely something to consider. Especially under Emery who won't afford him the same luxuries Wenger did.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - it was why Arsenal pulled out, as he said. I have mentioned before on the Arsenal site that this has been a long term issue with the player, resulting in him refusing to pass the ball to certain players in the past.}

10 Oct 2018 19:03:18
Hi Ed001. We are a long way from reality on this one mate but how do you think he would fit in if he were to arrive please? And who does he play instead of.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he would, he is too far up his own arse and would no doubt vanish up there.}

11 Oct 2018 13:58:56
I can’t see the point in signing Ramsey. He’s not better than anyone already at the club, lacks the vision and passing to be a proper number 10, I’ve never seen him have a good game unless it’s against poor opposition. If we are after an centre midfielder who can create and score goals, get Fekir or Neves, not a carthorse like Ramsey.

Agree11 Disagree1

09 Oct 2018 10:56:51
Hi Eds! Hope you're doing good.

Any truth in Jadon Sancho rumours?

Agree0 Disagree7

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Jadon Sancho rumour.}

09 Oct 2018 11:31:17
It is a story that emanates from that reliable beacon of truth. The S** tabloid. Seems utter nonsense.

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 19:26:20
I do find out of window transfer rumours, best one so far on sky giving an explanation to City’s supposed buy back clause “That means if City match any fee offered for Sancho, they will get first refusal” no you melons if a team bid and city match it then the player chooses which ever contract/ club he prefers!

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 19:45:23
Sancho is a hot topic in the media, he’s probably linked with every top 4 side.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 19:25:17
Ed002 Can i ask how do you rate Jadon Sancho? Do you think he has a bright future?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to rate players expecially the kiddies who have played a few games well in Germany. The player was well thought of at Manchester City but has opted to take his chance in Dortmund - and he should stick at it for a couple of years or so at least. The German and Italian clubs are looking at young English players with a view to giving them a shot at playing - which would be far less likely in England. Should Dortmund be willing to sell him and should Manchester City not take up their option, those clubs who tried to take him back towards London in 2017 might be interested, but I would expect they would be priced out of a move. He is young, doing well right now and would be one to note for the future - no more at this time.}

10 Oct 2018 04:08:16
Thank Ed002!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

13 Oct 2018 02:42:34
The best thing for the lad is to keep his head down, work hard and hope he establishes himself as a starter, I would stay in Germany until he is 22 before moving to a top 4 club.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2018 03:09:41
Whatever he does, I hope he fulfils his potential because he could go on to big things from what I've seen so far, if not for Liverpool, then hopefully for England.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 05:20:43
Hi eds

I heard a rumour that Leceister are interested in Clyne. Any truth to this? I note that his contract runs out in 2020 so it would be nice to get a small fee for him as opposed to him leaving on a free at the end of next season.

Agree10 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - they are looking for a right back and if the price is right he would be an option for them.}

09 Oct 2018 08:11:13
Thanks a lot Ed001! Hope you are feeling well.

I think once he departs we are okay for cover given that Gomez and Fabinho can fill in there if TAA isn't available. This would also provide Ki Jana Hoever with a path into the first team.

On the other side I wouldn't be surprised if a replacement right back was brought in given that Ki Jana Hoever is still extremely young and that there is a possibility that Trent moves into midfield.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - and that Gomez and Fabinho are better in the centre as well.}

09 Oct 2018 08:40:39
Absolutely Ed001.

Quite a lot for Klopp to consider when fringe players leave regarding whether to sign replacements or promote youth. Luckily he has time to think about this.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - that is always the difficult bit, which is why so few managers stay long enough in a job to have to get the balance right.}

09 Oct 2018 11:31:50
Good move all around!

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 19:26:57
Ed001 If Clyne leaves who do you want to replace him?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe that we need to replace him right now.}

10 Oct 2018 04:09:29
Thank Ed001!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

11 Oct 2018 06:27:58
Ed001, why are Leicester City looking at a right back? They already have Pereira and Simpson.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Simpson is crap and is not happy being on the bench and Pereira is not up to much either.}

11 Oct 2018 07:44:36
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - very welcome. I should explain more, Simpson was always deemed as in need of replacing, even as far back as their title-winning season. Pereira was brought in to replace him, but he has been found to be lacking in basic defensive requirements, so they are not overly happy with him within the club.}

08 Oct 2018 15:41:59
Liverpool scouts been watching Steven Bergwijn closely this season, release clause of €20m.

Agree6 Disagree0

08 Oct 2018 16:22:56
Pure talent. Someone said me three names that’s been rounding the league! Neres, Kluivert and this lad.

Agree1 Disagree4

08 Oct 2018 16:42:29
Totally agree if mane doesn't agree new contract we might need them I think kluivert is going to be insanely good haven't seen a bit of neres he looks quality the other lad I have not seen, does anyone think there is more talent too call on in reserves like Camacho, adekanye, Curtis Jones they around same age group of the above mentioned.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - Kluivert moved clubs a few weeks ago and will not be joining Liverpool.

08 Oct 2018 17:57:17
What if you sign him and he takes time to settle. Will you lambast him and the club for showing a lack of ambition?

Agree7 Disagree0

08 Oct 2018 19:25:25
Who me? I get behind all players new signings as well especially very young, the new players we have signed like fabihno has won the French league I think with Monaco and played lots of champions league games an performed at a high level also a Brazil international so I thought he would slot in there nicely so that's a bit disappointing also Keita has performed at a high level in Germany and helped Leipzig get into champions league I thought he would slot in effortlessly, my frustration is both them players look lost bar Keita a couple of times it's like there natural game is not being allowed too flourish there being told or trying too do something different, and I know about kluivert wish we could of got him instead of Roma.

Agree1 Disagree3

08 Oct 2018 20:29:43
It seems like Keita needs time, hopefully he will be given it.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Oct 2018 22:50:29
Fabinho and Keita are both being asked to get used to a different country, culture, club, language and to top it off, they alsoh to form new partnerships with different players and even the team style will be different. I think we often fail to appreciate how many changes new players are asked to absorb whilst all being played out under the scrutiny of fans - some of whom think it should be like FIFA and can't understand why players take a while to settle in.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - They are Liverpool players, they need a period of transition.}

08 Oct 2018 22:55:20
Klopp isn't going to wait a year for him after paying out £50 odd million then dump him a few months into his first season.
He'll be given time, no worries there.

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Oct 2018 05:36:05
Ed002 of course they do - at the very least they time to work out how to make their way around those dying pit ponies.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2018 00:25:33
That's a word we haven't heard in a while Ed002, "Transition". Bring back any memories?!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Oct 2018 20:06:17
Since it was posted on here Ed i've read it elsewere about Paqueta's agent being in Liverpool. Do you no anything in way of interest or an approach from us at all please?

Agree6 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Obviously if his agent is in Liverpool as you say he will no doubt be joining.}

06 Oct 2018 21:20:36
Cheers for reply ed. I thought it was a load of crap, now confirmed.

Agree13 Disagree0

07 Oct 2018 09:31:06
I don't think someone understands sarcasm 🙄 or are they just blinded by there wishful thinking?

Agree0 Disagree25

07 Oct 2018 10:25:26
The man understands the sarcasm. Maybe time for you too to understand his simple words.

Agree23 Disagree0

07 Oct 2018 14:06:13
Yes fully understand sarcasm Pool77. What I don't understand is why you have bothered to comment at all. It adds nothing to the site witty comments. Maybe think of something positive to say.

Agree11 Disagree0

06 Oct 2018 00:54:10
Hi Ed’s and reds,

I’ve seen a lot of rumours today about Lucas Paqueta’s agent being in Liverpool today ahead of potential talks with us. Anyone else knows if this is true?

Agree5 Disagree1

06 Oct 2018 10:00:51
Really really really really hope so he would b great we need some creative magic.

Agree2 Disagree1

06 Oct 2018 10:51:24
The transfer window is closed, last time anyone asked about him Ed002 said no interest. An update was given recently on transfers and he was not mentioned either. I would dismiss as nonsense tbh.

Agree9 Disagree1

06 Oct 2018 12:49:04
The Ed’s are allowed not to know everything.

Agree8 Disagree1

06 Oct 2018 15:13:18
They are indeed, but the quality of sources reporting on this speaks for itself.

Agree3 Disagree0

06 Oct 2018 18:59:11
If only it were true.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Oct 2018 20:57:36
Hi Ed002

Hope you are well, did you attend any games this week or not?

Also you gave a breif transfer summary a few days ago and wondered if you think or no if we are again looking at bringing in a N.10 a sort of replacement for Coutinho simular to Fekir?

Or do we seem to be looking at other positions as priority?

Thanks in advance.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I am far, far from games this week as I am at home in the Southest. Liverpool after their tinkering with Fekir turned to Shaqiri who, to be fair, has so far done very well and must be a surprise to many of the fans and observers like me. We also have to remember that the club still have forwards ho are not getting, or not getting much of, a run out. Largely the squad is in decent shape. The club has clearly been considering central midfield. I am not sure right now there is a priority. I would not be surprised if a goalkeeper was also being considered.}

04 Oct 2018 22:43:57
Cheers for your detailed reply Ed, Appreciate it.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are vey welcome.}

05 Oct 2018 09:47:07
Would Chamberlain be the number 10 when available? Any date for his return?
Would this let Lallana leave?

Agree1 Disagree2

05 Oct 2018 10:35:48
glad to hear that shaqiri has surprised many, including yourself ed2!
says to me that the concerns were real, but also that he has, so far, put his head down and put in some good work. hope he can keep it up.

Agree1 Disagree2

05 Oct 2018 10:57:48
Ramsey is not a central midfielder precisely but scored goals from midfield which we are lacking atm!
I guess that’s the reason to buy him. He is poor in passing and very poor in tackling (Not his strong points) . But gets into the opposition box.

Agree0 Disagree6

05 Oct 2018 18:35:29
Buy a player whose faults outweigh his merits?

Agree3 Disagree1

06 Oct 2018 19:53:57
Where can I find the transfer update by ed2? What may get the best result on the search engine?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 13:42:37
Ed002 what caliber of goalkeeper would you say they'd be looking at to replace Mignolet? I can't imagine too many good ones being happy to sign as backup. Any names going around?
Thanks a mil.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Previously the club set the sights too high with the likes of Andriy Lunin and Thomas Strakosha and they are off the table. Other clubs are looking at persuading first pick players from what might be considered second tier leagues to make the move - Jeroen Zoet is one such example for another side at the moment. Many of the smarter clubs will look to Home Grown players (like Atletico did with Antonio Adán, like Manchester United did with Lee Grant, Chelsea with Asmir Begović, Roma did with Antonio Mirante) when the count of HG players is an issue.}

04 Oct 2018 17:34:12
Ed 001, if it is believed that Hummels position at Bayern may he coming to an end.
Do Liverpool have or shown any interest? Do you see him as a viable option and would you want him?

Many thanks

red deano YNWA.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - no interest that I am aware of, though he does speak glowingly about Klopp so on a free if Matip or Lovren were to leave it may be possible. Personally I would think he was not worth looking at as he is poor at defending.}

04 Oct 2018 20:52:39
Ed001, isn’t that a trait of the modern day defender these days?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - not many as awful as him to be fair. Great on the ball but god awful as a defender and about as quick as an hour with Michael McIntyre. Well, maybe not as slow as that, as there is little worse than an hour with McIntyre. McIntyre is the comedy equivalent of a cheesegrater to the private parts.}

05 Oct 2018 10:13:50
My favorite comedian McIntyre.

Agree1 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - is that a bad joke? Maybe one of his?}

05 Oct 2018 11:15:12
One of the few players I disagree with you on Ed001, I've always found Hummels to be a good defender who reads the game well. He's slow but his positional sense is excellent. Great player to have when breaking down defensive teams or launching a counter attack. That said he's been particularly poor in the air in his last couple seasons which is strange as it used to be one of his biggest strengths. I find it hard to imagine him moving to Liverpool but I think he'd be an upgrade on Lovren or Matip. Would prefer to develop Gomez though.

McIntyre is awful. He's about as funny as my Granddad Hugh, who while hilarious, has been dead for several years.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - his positional sense is ok, but the speed of the game means he often can't get into position as he is too slow. His tackling is weak and he has no spring in his legs any more due to injuries. He is finished at the top level by the looks of it, sadly.}

05 Oct 2018 11:29:10
His joke about the spices is absolutely hilarious.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - enough about Hummels, what about McIntyre?}

05 Oct 2018 11:57:18
Hope that isn’t the case and that if it is he enjoys something of a renaissance. It wasn’t too long ago that it seemed as though Rakitic’s legs were gone and now look at him. Either way a move to Liverpool isn’t happening.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Oct 2018 18:12:54
Ed001, I share your views on Mcintyre entirely. I just don't get him. Had funnier visits to the dentist. Lee Mack, Milton Jones more my cup of tea.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I just don't get why people like the squeaky voiced tit.}

05 Oct 2018 18:23:36
I get angry watching him. How he sells out large arenas, God only knows. He just comes across as an upper class twat.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Hummels won't be moving to Liverpool.}

05 Oct 2018 19:53:23
Thanks for your thoughts Ed001, its appreciated.

red deano YNWA.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Oct 2018 08:23:25
Funniest thing involving McIntyre was his appearance on BBC Test Match special. He’d been waiting to get on as a guest and was talking glowingly about how it was s lifetime ambition.
It was absolute car crash listening as all his “humour” went down like a lead balloon and it culminated in Agnew saying “is this supposed to be funny”? 😂😂

I guess nodding your head very quickly doesn’t really work on radio 😄.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2018 16:23:59
Hi eds

With Moreno's contract ending at the end of the season, is Klopp looking to promote Adam Lewis as back up for Robertson? Any insight will be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - far too early to say.}

03 Oct 2018 16:34:13
Thank you for your response Ed001

I understand that it would be too early to say. I will remember to ask around February.

Does Klopp rate him?

Agree4 Disagree0

03 Oct 2018 22:30:56
With moreno probably leaving then, that could leave the door open for Lewis or Gallagher but it could also mean a new signing.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Oct 2018 10:30:08
Ed1 do you think Tierney from celtic would be a good shout to replace moreno?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - if he was currently interested in leaving Celtic then yes, but he won't move to back up Robbo.}

04 Oct 2018 10:45:25
Thanks Ed. I hear he's quite a versatile player too. But with Robbo doing so well he'd probably not be tempted.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he can play left mid, as can Robbo, but we don't really play with a left mid.}

04 Oct 2018 20:59:30
Left centre half of a back 3 and if ya really stuck centre half although he isn't the tallest player

On thing about him he always looks up with his crosses to pick someone out.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Oct 2018 15:36:32
What's happened to that Juanma kid? A year or so ago, there was talk of him making the grade in future at left back.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he didn't work out as expected, it happens.}

02 Oct 2018 14:16:18
Question for Ed002. Does Liverpool have any interest in Dani Olmo. Croatian media claim they do. Just a reminder, Dani Olmo was Barcelona u16 and Spain captain, but he hada clause Dinamo Zagreb triggered, and he moved bcos he wanted senior football. It was excellent decision for him as he is currently best player in croatian league and a joy to watch. He iscreative midfielder (for me best at 10).

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Dinamo Zagreb are happy to profiteer over the transfer of Dani Olmo with interest from Borussia Dortmund, Crystal Palace, Cagliari and most noticably Milan. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at all.}

02 Oct 2018 22:32:40
Now harry is going to watch every dinamo game and become an expert on this player.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Oct 2018 22:45:37
On the player? You mean on the league!

Agree4 Disagree0

02 Oct 2018 23:06:48
Thank you ed for your answer.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

03 Oct 2018 14:44:21
Dianamo Zegreb has produced some of the best midfielders of our time. From Modric to Coric! Truly gifted Croatians!

Agree3 Disagree2

06 Oct 2018 05:24:53
Dianamo Zegreb? Is that the women’s team?
