Hello to all the eds! ✌️😁 Nice job as always. Question for the 12000 time maybe eds01, VVD a possibility in Jan? Or can we look elsewhere?

Where do you see the club heading with the new injuries that came out at Cb.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - He may we’ll be an option but the club has looked elsewhere.}

04 Dec 2017 21:19:30
Soz to ask but who exactly have we looked elsewhere at please eds.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Try the Sharkopod.}

04 Dec 2017 22:12:49
Ed02 a friend who works for Man City says the information they are getting is that a deal with Southampton has been agreed to buy VVD in Jan.

Take it is not something you have heard?



Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City are buying a CB in January and I am aware of a list of 6 or 7 being considered including VVD. I am not aware of any agreement having been reached at this time.}

05 Dec 2017 06:48:58
god i hope mancity land VVD. i know he is our target for a while but i really don't see how he will at all improve that defense, he is himself prone to moments of stupidity.

Agree2 Disagree2

05 Dec 2017 07:01:00
Think we will go for De Vrij. And the another CB in the summer that may not be VVD (hope City get him considering they have lots of money to waste) . KOulibaly would be ideal but lots of competition for him.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Dec 2017 11:10:18
i think it is weird we didn't go for someone like Manolas when it was clear we didn't het our cb. he is imo a much better defender than vvd, and would prob be available for less money aswell.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - LFC made a low bid for another centre back but had no interest in Manolas. This was all dealt with at the time.}

06 Dec 2017 17:52:11
Out of interest Ed002 was the low Bid because didn't rate the player or didn't rate the need fir CB?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - well if clubs don’t rate players they don’t make bids. It was no more than wasting people’s time.}

10 Dec 2017 20:16:17
Wasnt it koulibily? Should've made sure we got him.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Dec 2017 17:11:22
Afternoon Ed1,

Any developments on CB targets for Jan or the same names still in the mix?

Your ready for the turkey dinner?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - still looks to be the same names for now, but I fear the recent good form might see less of an effort made than should be made. I hope not but it is a worry.

Nowhere near ready mate, got the parents coming over for Xmas and New Year and still trying to sort out the place ready.}

04 Dec 2017 20:13:10
cheers ed, always good to have the parents over after the stress though, especially xmas!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - not so sure about that, they are the blooming stress!}

04 Dec 2017 20:46:02
Noooo ed please don't say that mate. We definitely need at least one CB in Jan imo.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Dec 2017 21:18:44
Stress can be a positive thing Ed001.


Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - can it? You had me confused then George, had to check which site I was on then, not seen you on here before!}

05 Dec 2017 07:02:46
Recent good form? If anyone at the club thinks that, they need to be kicked out ASAP. We had one fit CB against Brighton. That's worrying regardless of the result. Travesty if one CB has not been lined up by now for January.

Agree2 Disagree2

04 Dec 2017 18:03:08
Wow that Malcom of Bordeaux looks an absolute superstar in the making. Has it all. Pace, power, trickery, vision and an absolute hammer of a left foot. Any possibility Liverpool might look to him as a cheaper alternative to maybe lemar if and when coutino goes eds?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Three clubs have spoken to Bordeaux about him recently. Some thime back Liverpool showed an interest but I am not aware of the interest being back at this time.}

04 Dec 2017 19:31:32
Cheers for the quick reply Ed 2.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

04 Dec 2017 12:25:09
Eds, i remember on the sharkopod that you said Barcelona would look to get a deal done before the end of november as one of the key instigators of the deal would no longer be involved and this would lead to them viewing other targets. In this situation, is it possible we could see coutinho stay a bit longer in a de gea to real madrid scenario? Or would he definately try and force a move to another team like psg, madrid, maybe even juventus to replace dybala?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we are now beyond the end of November and they will be considering their options. It is possible that Coutinho could move in January or the Summer but be clear he wants out. Coutinho is not of interest to Juventus and he is not first choice for Real Madrid. PSG might retain and interest but it is Barcelona who want him and that is where the player wants to go.}

04 Dec 2017 19:56:00
Up to Barcelona to make us an acceptable offer. The ball is in their court. 🤝.

Agree5 Disagree0

05 Dec 2017 03:05:38
Barca will once again resort to underhand tactics to get Coutinho cheap. We trust Henry to duke it out with them.

Agree3 Disagree0

03 Dec 2017 20:28:42
Evening Ed002. Now that that guy you mentioned has left Barca, were are we at with regards to them looking at other options given that November has passed please?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - They are considering their options.}

04 Dec 2017 06:08:18
They will be back for Couts. Just a matter of time and i hope it happens for LFC and the player's sake. This saga has gone on for too long now. We don't need more toxic ruining our season.

Agree5 Disagree10

04 Dec 2017 14:11:42
yes its best for everyone that this is sorted soon, all we need to do is set a price with Barcelona, then let him go, just have a replacement standing by, not really sure who, there are two maybe three who could come in, so it depends who would actually want to come to Liverpool .

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Dec 2017 03:06:51
Happy? You said 2 or 3? At 100mil likely only 1 come in. All clubs that negotiate will inflate their prices.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 12:26:59
sorry, Relax, I meant one from a choice of 2 or 3, I still expect Gomez to move across to his natural position of centre back later this season, or for next season,

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Dec 2017 04:31:36
Hi ed's! I think Matthijs De Ligt is going to be one of the best defenders in Europe. Do you know if Liverpool have shown any interest in this player?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he is being tracked by everyone mate. Little to no chance of any move happening for him in the next couple of windows, as things stand.}

03 Dec 2017 09:32:19
Thanks Ed, appreciate your knowledge!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. He does look a bit special from the little I have seen but one of the coaches there said neither club nor player think he is ready yet to move on.}

03 Dec 2017 18:52:22
Declan Rice looks like a star in the making as well! Any chance we could be in for him ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of, but they are not looking to let him go he is seen as their big hope for the future.}

03 Dec 2017 19:25:25
Ahh okay. Thanks ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2017 14:34:51
Don Balon:

Liverpool want Sergi Roberto as part of the deal for Couthino. Barcelona is not willing to sell Sergi. but sergi is so far not willing to sign new deal. Any thruth eds?

Agree2 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. Another English side interested in Roberto have recently spoken with Barcelona and they do not wish to sell, and the player's agent has said that it is only a matter of agreeing the financial package that it is keeping him from signing it.}

01 Dec 2017 14:50:11
Ok. Thank you for your quick reply mate! Hope your doing good and have a great weekend.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Appreciate it and you.}

02 Dec 2017 05:12:56
Isn't Roberto another B2B midfielder? Makes no sense even if he is quality. I thought our targets were Goretzka and Meyer.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Dec 2017 10:00:27
According to sky utd in for goretzka, could be difficult.

Agree1 Disagree2

02 Dec 2017 11:38:47
Roberto is a player who can play either defensive midfield or right back and is a fantastic player in both positions. I’d take him as part of the deal over any of the other dross that Barcelona have on their release list.

Agree9 Disagree1

02 Dec 2017 18:43:02
Agree with Dennis.

Roberto is their best player after Messi and Suarez.

Agree2 Disagree1

02 Dec 2017 21:24:30
Roberto at the base of our midfield with Keita and Wijnaldum/ Grujic would be pretty strong.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Dec 2017 23:35:52
Roberto is good, clever player and good with the ball, but he's not the their third best player mk - not sure on what grounds, iniesta is still better. Still would take him not that he'd leave.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Nov 2017 21:58:45
Question for Ed02 if you have the time : As mentioned in the past and again on the most recent (very much appreciated) Shaarkpod, you suggested that Barcelona were looking to reach an agreement over Coutinho by the end of November. Appreciate that it is about half an hour into December but has there been any indication reach you that they were getting close to their goal? Thanks in advance.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool arevaware where they stand but I am not aware of any agreement.}

01 Dec 2017 14:26:31
I am not sure that Liverpool should be working with whatever Barcelona want, and on their terms,
he is our player, we hold all the cards, play it tough, I don't like the way Barcelona have gone about their pursiut of Couts, yes he wants to go, stay tough, he goes when we say so, and at a price that we set .

Agree2 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have done nothing wrong whatsoever - it is Liverpool who have repeated acted illegally in chasing players. You views on the transfer process are arrogant. If Liverpool do not wish to sell the player then all they have to do is say he is not for sale and they can keep another player who really doesn't want to be at the club.}

01 Dec 2017 17:31:02
wish we conclude this asap.
unnecessary head ache brought on my the club.

Ed 02 is right.


Agree3 Disagree2

01 Dec 2017 16:53:41
Hey Ed002, what is the likely hood of Pipco going in January. Does not make much sense if he cannot play in the Champions League for Barcelona or is that an irrelevant point. Would an agreement be put in place, but kept under wraps until Liverpool secure a replacement for the summer. Obviously with the Neymar-Dembele deal, Barcelona paid over the odds because clubs knew they had this huge amount of cash they were sitting on. Hopefully the club do not put themselves in a similar position and pay over odds for a player. Cheers Ed have a great weekend.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to sensibly measure liklihood I am afraid Harry. Barcelona have been speaking to Liverpool and Kia has been involved as well. They wanted agreement by yesterday for reason I previously explained. Now Barcelona will likely step back and consider their options. I am not sure about why you have Neymar mentioned but yes they paid a lot for Dembele. The Champions League is of no relevance as Barcelona are already pushing to move players on in January - but it is a difficult time. Real Madrid are also trying to get business done for January but are encountering difficulties themselves. Again PSG are looking to move players on in January of have commited sales by June 30. All of these are are looking to sell expensive players and RM and Barcelona open to including players in part exchange.}

01 Dec 2017 21:18:51
Cheers, thanks for the response. I should have been more clear about the Neymar mention, I was bringing it that if Barcelona had secured Dembele earlier or prior to the Neymar figure being released they could have potentially got him for cheaper. Have great weekend!

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - The price for Neymar was fixed and known far, far in advance.}

03 Dec 2017 11:16:58
Ed2: Another player who don't want to be there (Coutinho I presume you refer too) . Who or how many else are we talking about?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - There are players at Liverpool who are not happy with their lot and those looking to see what the future will hold elsewhere. Fundamentally it is no different from other clubs.}

30 Nov 2017 16:34:00
Markovic's agent is in Turkey to negotiate a move to Fenerbace. Must be our biggest waste of money in recent times.

Touted as the one of the hottest wingers in Europe when we signed him.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - It was a year too soon and I made that clear at the time. You would also not believe the additional costs that Liverpool paid for him until not too long ago. At least another English side go some money out of him and are pleased.}

30 Nov 2017 16:52:58
I can imagine Ed on the back of the price tag what we might of added in over time payments. Hope he gets a chance to play and recover from these lost years.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I hope so.}

30 Nov 2017 18:24:54
I remember clearly Ed02 saying we got him too soon and that Chelsea who had first option on him, stepped back as they knew he was not ready. BR's been gone 2 years and we are still cleaning up his useless mess in the TW.

Agree6 Disagree2

30 Nov 2017 20:13:11
Didn't Br's useless mess bring in Firminho and Can or was
That the transfer committee and Br gets the credit for the crap ones.

Agree16 Disagree2

30 Nov 2017 22:23:22
Brendan bought firmino and tried to play him as a winger. He is playing as a centre forward now, the same role he played at hoffenheim by the way, not a "no10". Everyone in the world knew about Firmino so I don't think anyone deserves credit for going out and signing him. Markovic is a damn shame and also a baffling one.

Agree5 Disagree7

30 Nov 2017 17:49:09
Have to agree with Ed002 then and now. A big move that came too soon and reaped so little for both parties. We lost over 20 million pounds in the deal whilst making Chelsea richer by a few million and the young lad lost over 3 seasons of his playing career.
Hopefully Marko can get his desired move and finally kick start his career that can still be memorable.

Agree6 Disagree0

30 Nov 2017 20:12:16
Even a broken clock is right twice a day eds2 😬😬.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Absolutely, a penguin stood by a portcullis is wothe three in the bush.}

30 Nov 2017 22:41:36
That's a decent point beef. We seem to have had managers who like to play players out of position. Rodgers with Firminho on the wing and Klopp with Milner at left back. And to make things worse both have even tried putting a non sportsman in Mignolet in goal.

Agree3 Disagree9

04 Dec 2017 12:13:46
Makes me chuckle how Mignolet is also given the captain's armband when Hendo isn't on the pitch ahh well we are playing really well which is the main thing.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2017 16:31:02
Palmieri again linked as a new left back, for the summer window however and not Jan.

Agree1 Disagree1
