Mignolet’s agent in talks with Napoli apparently. If he does go then all the best to him.

Agree7 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Napoli want one of David Ospina or Simon Mignolet. Besiktas want one of Loris Karius, Ospina or Mignolet. Mignolet was priced out of a move to Fenerbahce. If Liverpool were to drop their demands for a loan fee for Karius, I suspect something could be done.}

15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Currently in talks with Arsenal fro Ospina so that option looks dead in water. I think we will be stuck with him until at least January now.

Agree2 Disagree3

15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Cheers Ed002. A fountain of knowledge as per usual.

Agree7 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 17:52:35
Spot on Ed as usual with your info. You explained both Karius and Mignolet could well leave in August. I have to say though I thought Karius would stay. Kids not ready to be back up imo.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - He should have moved at the first opportunity. Staying at the club puts him in an untenable situation but I would not put it beyond Klopp to force him to stay.}

15 Aug 2018 18:51:54
He does want to leave then Ed? Was at Anfield on sunday and he seemed happy enough in the warm up, even signed a few programmes. Shame really.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - His position is completely untenable.}

15 Aug 2018 19:37:45
Do you mean untenable within the club? Certainly the fans would be happy for him to stay as a number 2.

Agree8 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - You must have a very short memory.}

15 Aug 2018 20:33:42
While there are some cretins, I think the ovation he received on his Anfield return speaks volumes to how the real fans feel about him.

Agree27 Disagree1

15 Aug 2018 20:53:43
Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. At this stage I’d be happy for Karius to go and prove himself elsewhere and Migs to stay as reserve. 👍🏻.

Agree3 Disagree6

15 Aug 2018 21:22:47
Saying ‘He should have moved at the first opportunity’ implies that he has had a chance to move and didn’t take it. Therefore I hardly think we can blame Klopp if he is still at Liverpool when the window closes.

Agree11 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I am sure Klopp is not responsible for anything at all.}

15 Aug 2018 22:54:59
Actually I think it is fair to blame Klopp for the goalkeeper situation at the club, it has been a shambles for some time. Mignolet and Karius were told they were no1 keeper, then Ward has just wasted a whole year out of his career when it was obvious he needed to go back out on loan for his sake.
Ed02 is right, Karius position is untenable, the vile abuse he and his family has received is despicable. Any mistake Karius made this season would have been magnified and the pressure he would have felt at away grounds would have been too great.
However i do not understand why Liverpool put crazy prices on players they clearly do not want, and put off any potential suitors, surely a more reasonable price to move the goalkeepers on would be beneficial to everybody in the long run.

Agree7 Disagree17

17 Aug 2018 10:04:49
*”Karius recieves abuse from some cretins; let’s blame Klopp it must be his fault”

Actually no, it’s the fault of a few mindless persons why Karius will struggle to hold down a role with the club.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 22:09:32
I never said it was Klopps fault for the abuse Karius received, as you rightly say that was down to the cretins. I think he handled the Danny Ward situation poorly. How was Ward going to get game time over Karius and Mignolet, the whole season was wasted for him.
Klopp is doing a brilliant job and bought so well this season, but we are allowed to occasionally criticize him, the goalkeeper situation definitely could have been handled better.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 11:51:54
I no we'd all love to see Liverpool at full tilt today but the most important thing is the 3 points. I'd take a 1- 0 win today just to get points on the board let city be the pace setters and be the team who everyone focuses on and Chase down while we quietly go about our business. Get some momentum and a winning mentality before we start putting on a show.

Agree6 Disagree17

12 Aug 2018 15:23:25
I mean, 3 points and a 4-0 is fun as well.

Agree48 Disagree2

12 Aug 2018 15:28:57
Or not then haha.

Agree8 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 15:57:13
Forget the score Milly's free kick being stopped by ale House jack wilsheres sack was epic.

Agree41 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 16:34:05
It was his only contribution but you have to give it to Wilshere, it was a ballsy move.

Agree25 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 17:35:38
You could say the freekick was nuts.

Agree11 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 18:29:59
Or you could say that it was cracking.

Agree6 Disagree2

12 Aug 2018 20:08:50
Iron Man 🤣 I nominate that for post of the week 👍.

Agree6 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 20:24:22
So Wilshere got sacked?

Agree6 Disagree2

12 Aug 2018 20:34:55
he racked up some points for that move for sure.

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 06:15:51
It took some spunk to make that challenge!

Agree4 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 07:56:12
That challenge was bollocks.

Agree2 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 16:56:36
At least someone put him to the test -icles.

Agree3 Disagree1

14 Aug 2018 21:39:02
Wilshere can become a farmer now. he's got two acres.

Agree2 Disagree2

14 Aug 2018 22:22:12
But why did the ref stop the game at that point? In his defence I suppose when they made the rule about stopping the game for head injuries they didn’t say which head!

Agree4 Disagree1

15 Aug 2018 08:04:44
We'll let Deeney decide whether wilshere lacks the cojones after putting in that block.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 19:11:51
Hey Eds, could you provide any insight of potential destination for the following players and if it will be a loan or sale.


Thanks Eds for the great work all summer long! Also did you Ed02 do another Sharkopod yet?

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - (a) Napoli found the asking price too high, asked for a loan but Liverpool were not interested. There is an issue with wage demands as well. Will need to see what happens. (b) Asking price too high for a sale, loan an option but Liverpool would need a new contract signed first - looking for ne interest. (c) Olympiakos keen but not at the asking price - I would think maybe Turkey will provide an option but whatever happens the price needs to come down. (d) A loan to a Championship club (WBA, Aston Villa or Nottingham Forest) is most likely - any thought of a sale to Scotland is now waning.}

10 Aug 2018 22:13:23
Not trying to get into money really, but how much can we really expect to get back on Markovic? At this point, any kind of offer has to be considered, right?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - we won’t get a penny for him.

10 Aug 2018 22:45:22
I understand getting the best deal you can, but sometimes the best deal may be to let them go a little below worth, for the good of the player, to get some income and off the wage bill - especially ones like Markovic and mignolet, who are 3rd choice at best.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Aug 2018 23:52:13
Firmane I think we should trust the club to know what’s best and if they want the price they want there’s obviously a reason for that.
Don’t worry about the players they are being paid more than handsomely for what they do, or don’t do.

Agree14 Disagree2

11 Aug 2018 07:46:42
Totally agree Bobby. Too often we have been dictated to by other clubs and by players who want away. I'm not saying be unrealistic with our fees but let's have fees in mind and stick to it. Let's remember these players are being paid well and understood the demands of the role upon entering the contract in the first place.

Agree10 Disagree1

17 Aug 2018 00:47:07
It always confuses me that window after window our asking price seems too high for Markovic and others. Just get rid, we’re still going to be paying wages regardless of a loan I assume so let them go and try and resurrect their careers.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 20:11:36
Just to clarify, teams can still sign unattached players before August 31st right? and Eds, are there any free agents that you rate highly at the moment that haven't been signed yet.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - . Clubs can sign players who are free agents year round IF they were free agents during the previous transfer window. So if Liverpool were to release Markova from his contract he cannot sign for a new club until the new year. If however Liverpool wanted to sign a player who is already out of contract - say after Mignolet leaves on August 27 - the they can take Ross Turnbull on board.}

09 Aug 2018 21:04:05
Ed, has Migs got a move confirmed then or are you being a cheeky teaser?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - He will leave.}

10 Aug 2018 00:02:07
That’s means there is still time to sign John Terry and James Collins.

Agree13 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 06:10:00
Or for Ben Arfa and Pontus Wernbloom ;)

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:27:19
Ings will join Southampton on loan.

Agree12 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 17:40:19
Good move for both. Hopefully he gets plenty of game time and it sets the path for a permanent move having proved his fitness. Good luck to the lad.

Maybe we’ll keep Origi until Jan when Brewster hopefully fit again and Sturridge has proven he can stay fit? Wouldn’t want Solanke to be our only backup striker.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:46:52
With an obligation to buy, apparently. Either way, good deal for him. Although it feels odd to be doing a deal with Southampton without a player coming to Liverpool. Guess I've been so used, over the years, to seeing Southampton players join Liverpool, not the over way around.

Best of luck to the lad, he deserves this opportunity.

Agree9 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:49:33

Agree2 Disagree8

09 Aug 2018 18:14:53
The 9th January? No. That’s a whole different window.

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 19:02:01
They haven’t voted to shut the January window early too have they?

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 11:30:02
I'm guessing you mean 1/ 9? But have written in the American way.
Yeh, transfers outside of the uk are OK until end of August, I think.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:27:10
BBC reporting Ings to Southampton.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:23:46
Hi Ed, does Ings got Southampton move?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - On loan.}

09 Aug 2018 17:53:00
Cheers Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 19:02:44
Is there on option or obligation to buy Ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - That won't be known before tomorrow or perhaps Monday.}

09 Aug 2018 13:08:30
Just read that Newcastle are trying to get Klavan, but negotiations have currently hit a brick wall. Know anything about it Eds.

Agree3 Disagree2

09 Aug 2018 14:53:35
Swap for Lascelles (spelling) maybe?

Agree0 Disagree7

09 Aug 2018 15:57:17
Pretty sure Newcastle are looking to build capacity, not downgrade it (no offense to Klavan but he's not got the legs that Lascelles does to play 40 games in a season, even if he has the ability)

Agree1 Disagree7

09 Aug 2018 12:05:42
Heard Liverpool ready to smash their transfer record today. Dembele?

Agree1 Disagree25

09 Aug 2018 12:11:44
They are "preparing a bid" right now.

Agree13 Disagree5

09 Aug 2018 12:19:13
Ive heard the same. Him and Fekir will be arriving on a pedalo to sign.

Agree9 Disagree5

09 Aug 2018 12:25:48
Lol how I wish this was true.

Agree4 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 12:42:55
I heard they are arriving on a bicycle made for two!

Agree5 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 12:57:31
It could get MessI.

Agree1 Disagree4

09 Aug 2018 13:13:43
Where dis you hear this?

Agree0 Disagree3

09 Aug 2018 14:14:22
It came as a vision😎.

Agree6 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 15:58:19
I thought we already signed him.

Agree8 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 16:04:11
Come'on damn it, sign ANYONE! :)

Agree2 Disagree6

09 Aug 2018 16:38:59
Sign anyone? What's the point in that?

Agree3 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 18:21:38
Sorry Flash, I forgot that this is the place houmor comes to die.
How do you do it Eds? Thanks Eds for the info during another crazy transfer window, if only you could sit back and rest. Maybe next year :D.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - cheers polecat..

08 Aug 2018 21:56:51
Reading that palace have offered £18 million for Origi. Not sure if it's true, but if it is and we manage to get £20 million for Ings too that's good business on the last day.

Can anyone confirm if mayo ice has been sold yet?

Agree1 Disagree5

08 Aug 2018 22:25:46
Would be best for all parties if true (origi) . With sturridge looking Sharpe and shaquiri we have enough back up scorers. Imgsy though I would love to get a year from him and loan out Solanke.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 23:50:47
Fekir to Chelsea?
Lordy, my prayers have been answered.

Their recruitment is all over the shop lately.
Where's the Grand Plan now?

Agree0 Disagree7

{Ed0333's Note - all over the shop how so?

09 Aug 2018 01:31:51
Not really sure how you can say they’re all over the shop. Once again Chelsea thrives in the seemingly chaotic window and comes out with a pretty good transfer list.

Agree5 Disagree3

09 Aug 2018 06:08:20
Late change of manager and system of play?
Over-priced late signings, loans replacing failed signings, was Fakir a number 1 target or are they happy with a Liverpool reject, signings that may hinder the development of home-grown talent (specifically Loftus-Cheek), a failure (so far) to deal with the lack of goals (striker)?

The late movement all feels like a rushed appeasement for their star man.

I would never write off Chelsea because they've gotten in quality people but it could take time to bind together, and how much patience the owner and Mr Hazard are prepared to show may be interesting to note?

Agree6 Disagree9

09 Aug 2018 06:21:20
Maybe Fekir will play as a striker for Chelsea.

Agree0 Disagree4

09 Aug 2018 08:03:47
We seem to be happy enough with a Chelsea reject.

Agree18 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 08:02:15
Haha, Chelsea’s window has been a sh*t show lol

I think the only positive they can take is they’ve held onto Kante and Hazard, which is basically the Spurs mentality for transfer windows 😂

I think we have had far and away the best window. Arsenal have also tried to shore up some problem positions.

Agree1 Disagree9

{Ed002's Note - Lyon approached Chelsea because they have been interested in Fekir in the long term and oasked after the player earlier this summer. Arsenal has even longer standing interest as do a couple of other clubs. The posts from Liverpool supporters are getting embarrassing again.}

09 Aug 2018 09:07:29
if signing a quality young keeper, kovacic, jorginho and potentially fekir then I've woken up in an alternate world?

Agree7 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 09:24:28
Wow NK, you are blatantly too bitter mate.

Agree4 Disagree2

09 Aug 2018 09:37:20
They've had a good window and addressed problems, this post just sounds bitter. Focus on Liverpool!

Agree4 Disagree2

09 Aug 2018 09:06:18
Well said ed002. Can you just imagine if Liverpool went for Fekir now how embarrassing would these posters look. Not that we will be until January that is.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You don't think they are working on it as I type then?}

09 Aug 2018 09:45:58
87red, I think that is the only explanation. I had thought they got in some decent signings until I read the above and found out I was clearly wrong! haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 09:46:19
I do think Chelsea need a striker though, unless Morata pulls his finger out.

Agree6 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:03:13
Nope, still can’t work out ‘mayo ice’?!


Agree5 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:04:45
Seriously, we have had a great window and we already have a fantastic team. Let's just look forward to the new season. I'm absolutely salivating ;)

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:28:09
I think we have had a very good window and as fans should be appreciative.

It also looks like Chelsea are going to end up having a good window if not a bit late. If they get Fekir good luck to him, i personally hope we don't go for him purely based on the reservations we have on the previous knee issues he has had. If we feel that strongly about the injury that a transfer falls through, don't go back in.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 10:35:49
You never had “mayo ice” Zed?

Lovely stuff 😋.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 10:44:48
I’m not sure if I’m on my own here but for me Chelsea look really strong on paper, if they can get a striker in they are bang in with a chance of challenging.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 11:35:29
We have a fantastic team/ squad on paper but have nothing won yet. let's not get carried away. It will be interesting to see what the posts on here will be like if we dare to draw a few in a row or heaven forbid loose one.
Having said that I'm really looking forward to the season ahead but realise we can't win them all YNWA.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 12:15:55
Yep, Chelsea look like they're a striker away from challenging. Lfc only need Lovren to keep up the consistency he's shown since January and we'll have a team capable of winning trophies.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 12:48:49
Did I read that right? Fekir a Liverpool reject? Tad harsh if you ask me? I know he has a sore knee from previously falling over off a climbing frame but a reject? World Cup winning reject eh who knew?

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 10:09:44

When you say “they” are working on it as you type, are you referring to Liverpool working on signing Fekir, or Chelsea are working on signing Fekir?

Or have I completely mis intetpreted what you wrote there?


Agree2 Disagree2

09 Aug 2018 10:41:37
Hiya ed002. When you say. (so you don't think they are working on it as I type) who do you mean lfc or cfc.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Nothing will happen with him now.}

09 Aug 2018 17:13:52
Mayo ice? Markov?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 17:52:20
Haha maybe a few too many wines from me 😳😂

But in all seriousness I do think we have had an amazing window and I am not bitter at all, not sure what I would be bitter about haha they’re not even in the CL.

Personally it looks like Chelsea have just treadead water by replacing their keeper with a less proven player, got ANOTHER CM on loan (not sure where they’re all going to play🤷🏻‍♂️😂) and still haven’t signed a striker that can put the ball in the net.

Agree to disagree I suppose though.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 18:18:31
Mayo is not eggsactly what I look for in an ice cream flavour, Ron 😉🤢.

Agree0 Disagree0
