Are we still looking at bringing in a new right back and replacing Clyne?
Very happy if our summer is salah, solanke, VVD, Keita and Robinson but it would still leave a massive weakness in my eyes on the right side of our defence.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for a RB.}

1.) 15 Jul 2017 17:02:06
I think you will be seeing more of Alexander-Arnold this season. Of course Clyne is still first-choice right-back for England as well still?

2.) 15 Jul 2017 18:13:37
Walker is first choice.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 18:14:01
I'm hoping Flannaghan can force his way back too.

4.) 15 Jul 2017 18:32:30
Lets be fair to clyne. he was the best player in a weak backline. didn't do much damage going forward, but can you blame him? Mignolet is the worst keeper we have had since kirkland. our centre backs were terrible. the trust in defence must be at an all time low in the first team. with a better all round backline would he improve going forward because there is trust there?

5.) 15 Jul 2017 18:54:54
Eds just a quick question? is it Liverpool are only looking at Robertson, VVD and Keita (+ the 2 we've signed) to have a competitive squad for next season or do u think we might have a look at anyone else also in any other positions.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the focus appears to be Keita and Robertson. Macca seems to think Liverpool will make a formal approach for van Dijk as well.}

6.) 15 Jul 2017 19:29:01
Thanks again for the reply 👍.

7.) 15 Jul 2017 19:50:44
I agree Jones, I'd love to give Illori a chance too.

8.) 15 Jul 2017 20:03:22
Brilliant, JaYox 😂.

9.) 15 Jul 2017 20:21:23
Macca thinks we'll make a formal approach for vvd eds . but what do you think or know? Has our interest ended after our apologies?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

10.) 15 Jul 2017 20:57:21
Surely there are other options. I don't the fee being spoken about for keita. but surely we could get better value for money looking elsewhere for CB. I don't see VVD as worth that kinda money.

11.) 15 Jul 2017 22:59:02
hmasson2 - since when did Macca say we'll make a formal approach for him, he didn't say that.

12.) 15 Jul 2017 23:34:36
@Teabag in his last post 🤔.

13.) 16 Jul 2017 00:14:08
Puzzled, re read it? - He didn't say we made a formal approach. He said he believes that they'll sign for us, said nothing about a formal approach made for VVD.

14.) 16 Jul 2017 07:39:12
If he believes he'll sign surely there will be a formal approach as apposed to a kidnapping?

15.) 16 Jul 2017 07:42:32
Teabag, if Macca expects us to sign him then it would mean we have to put in a formal approach otherwise how else would we sign him?!

16.) 16 Jul 2017 08:17:45
The only way I can see it happening is if VVD hands in a transfer request.

17.) 16 Jul 2017 03:38:13
Thanks ed002.
And yeah looks like we will be seeing more of TAA, I hope he steps up and makes the place his own.

18.) 16 Jul 2017 13:01:20
Hi i think liverpool need 2 leftbacks .2 right backs . maybe robertson lb but still need another . rb clyne and aa . i think flano will struggle no way is he a lb, he keeps cutting in and not getting down the line .

My post from earlier, so looking forward to the next 3 goals and rooneys red card 😂

10 Dec 2017 11:20:27
I think Everton will defend for their lives and play dirty, it will keep us out for about 40 mins, then we will score, Everton will completely lose the plot, get a player sent off and we will win 4-0.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 15:52:09

2.) 10 Dec 2017 15:58:42
Lovren - thick as two short planks.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 17:11:09
Personally can't really have a go at lovren. It wasn't a penalty. If we had taken our chances it wouldn't have been a problem. The player selection was more baffling to me.

4.) 10 Dec 2017 17:28:40
Lovren does nothing wrong. It's a poor decision from ref. The occasion has got to him n hopefully he'll be punished for it. Lovren makes no pushing movement with his hands, the forward moves into lovren. Williams does it every time but the ref chooses not to give that. only he can explain that. 2nc half we were not urgent enough for me. But I'm sure that decision will even itself up next time we are 3 nil up! Everton were shocking. But 3 points on weds will make it seem like a distant memory.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 17:29:55
Why not
There was no need to lay hands on his back
The player was running away from the goal
How many points is Lovren going to cost us before we buy reinforcements in January.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 17:34:43
Definitely wasn't a pen. It was similar to last week at Brighton.

7.) 10 Dec 2017 17:58:17
Pen or not he shouldn’t have found himself in such a good position with what was Everton’s only forward pass of the game.

8.) 10 Dec 2017 19:12:59
Of course it was, but I don't blame lovren I blame the man who didn't replace him in the summer and plays him every week, the same man who gifted them an early Christmas present with his side and substitutions.

9.) 10 Dec 2017 20:36:22
Waro, can we talk about the Elephant in the room .

10.) 10 Dec 2017 20:37:00
No it was not, Waro. Watch it again. Lewin threw himself at Lovs, drew the contact and flopped to the ground, plain and simple. What was Locvs supposed to do? Disappear like a ghost? Nonsense. Lovren did nothing wrong. Your ire should be focused on Mane who IMO, lost us the game cos had he squared his chance to Salah or Ox, it is 2-0 and job done.

I find it interesting that you are now here spouting crap about Klopp not replacing Lovs whereas in the past 6 games where we have scored 20 plus goals and won 5 out of last 7 games (2 draws) in the PL (with Lovs in the team, btw), you were absent. As Shankly said, "If you can't support us when we lose (or draw), don't support us when we win".



21 Nov 2017 21:04:13
Ideas for ed001s and bennys podcast.

1:The rise of salah.
2:the continuing Coutinho debacle
3:The improvement of Moreno- should he stay or should he go? (He just gave away a pen as I typed that lol)
4:goalkeeper situation
5:VVD- would you still go for him?
6: this seasons form so far.
7: has our defence turned a corner?


1.) 21 Nov 2017 21:43:49
I think number 7 can be answered quite easily after that.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 21:55:28
Number 3 is quite easy too. Bye.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 22:00:09
Agree Moreno iis certainly not the quality to take us to the next level. On today’s Performance he is the worse left back I have seen in red shirt.

4.) 21 Nov 2017 22:04:24
Djimi Traore has moved up a level.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 22:10:52
both klavan and gomez got lucky in the first half, but 2nd half moreno single handedly gave the game away.

6.) 21 Nov 2017 22:20:02
Can't pin it all on Moreno. He was the worst of a bad bunch but we were 3-2 up when he left the pitch.

7.) 21 Nov 2017 22:21:21
Ditch Moreno now. or KLOPP will be getting ditched.
No more backing them to the hilt. KLOPP is paid to make decisions.
No more mr. nice guy. get ruthless.

8.) 21 Nov 2017 22:22:59
Moreno completely gave the Win away. I blame Klopp for praising him, he doesn't deserve praise for not making mistakes. You can't praise something that Should be happening anyway. Not as if he's been Good at any point, he's just been 'not as rubbish as normal'. Back to his old ways now.
Robertsons chance surely.

9.) 21 Nov 2017 22:26:30
You all seem to avoid the elephant in the room. I blame the captain. He don't lead by example and he is to blame for not rallying the troops. Could see the team lacked leadership. can't just blame moreno.

10.) 21 Nov 2017 22:40:53
Moreno arguably man of the match on Saturday, baby born pre match, returns to play against his previous club and yes he has a mare ( as he did last time we played them) perhaps Klopp should have rested him, he looked to me that he was trying too hard and lost his head and reverted to previous over keen challenges.
The lad has made big strides forward this season don't hang him on one bad performance.

11.) 21 Nov 2017 22:52:36
Ok it's disappointing tonight but Moreno has done well most of season an most of us would of took a point before the game, this is were we will see how much Moreno has improved cos next game Chelsea an if he ain't on it we will get punished, we need a danger sniffing defence minded leader in mid field for me Henderson jus isn't that, bottom line is we ain't a very experienced team in champions league an it has told all campaign silly draws when we should b winning, hope klopp isn't shy in January window.

12.) 21 Nov 2017 22:53:12
It didn’t take long for you guys to come out of the woodwork did it?

13.) 21 Nov 2017 22:28:51
Moreno had one bad game, doesn't deserve to leave the club because of it.

14.) 21 Nov 2017 23:40:42
Actually MK I think you can blame the draw on Moreno completely, the first 2 goals where all his fault and getting them 2 goals gave Seville the belief they could grab a third.
I don’t want to knock the lad completely I even wrote a post about him the other day praising his hard work and massive improvement recently, I did point out then though he still has his flaws and that’s been showcased tonight, he’s still really rash and can’t defend to save his life, he’s learned when to attack and when to defend and his positioning is arguably better but he’s still not learned how to actually defend.
Jury is still very much out for me, before tonight I didn’t think he was a long term option but someone who will do for now and I still think that even after that horror show, I just worry teams are going to see him as a weakness and target him in matches and try and force him into mistakes.

15.) 22 Nov 2017 00:00:59
It's a bit of a poisoned chalice the left back position I hope Robertson gets a chance so we can at least all judge how good he is, it's horrible hindsight but maybe milner would of been better as the old demons against his old club were brought out in Moreno, milner is experienced an steady as shown last year an used in moderation would b very useful, Gomez has too go in the middle for me if matip injured.

16.) 22 Nov 2017 06:38:28
The hate for Moreno is way too much after that game. The first goal was entirely his fault but the referee was coerced imto giving that penalty, very soft indeed. As for the 3rd goal, failure to get the ball out of the box had nothing to do with Moreno and ultimately was the goal that cost us because players switched off at a vital time.



21 Nov 2017 11:17:48
Hi Ed001, I know you've been really busy recently with the articles you've been writing up (excellent work by the way) but I miss your podcasts with Benny, are we going to get another one soon? I nominate MKscouser as a special guest as well.


{Ed001's Note - I hope so mate, depends on Benny, I am always happy to do them. They are a lot of fun to do.}

1.) 21 Nov 2017 13:00:53
They couldn't afford me Mikey 😉😂.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 13:26:09
I second that request pretty please. Also can u add Harry to the panel as he was the star of the show when he did the last one.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure I speak for Benny when I say we would love to get him back on the podcast.}

3.) 21 Nov 2017 13:37:30
Excellent news I really am more excited for this than Xmas. I hope this comes off. Thanks for all the hard work and look forward to many more good reads.

{Ed001's Note - you just want to hear Harry again!}

4.) 21 Nov 2017 14:10:30
Harry is great and I like his comments and how he puts them across.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 14:53:08
Don’t let fame get to your head Adam, you will be on next years I’m a celeb eating crocodile vagina if your not careful 😂.

{Ed001's Note - don't get his hopes up.}

6.) 21 Nov 2017 15:03:16
I'd go in the jungle no bother. Only thing I'm scared of is losing Harry.

7.) 21 Nov 2017 16:50:08
If posters come up with some suggestions they want discussed, we can record at the end of the week.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate.}

8.) 21 Nov 2017 17:15:05
Please get Harry involved! e.



17 Nov 2017 18:34:59
Thanks for the latest sharkopod Ed002, the music at the end put me to sleep for 4 hours this afternoon though, you putting in this hypnotic music to put us all to sleep so you can have some peace on here? Lol.


{Ed002's Note - Seems like a plan. }

1.) 17 Nov 2017 19:45:08
Ed002, always love the music and segues that you put in your podcasts. Can you give us an Ed002 playlist?

{Ed002's Note - Obviously it is easy to tell you the three finest albums ever recorded are:
1. Country Joe and The Fish - Electric Music for the Mind and Body
2. Grateful Dead - American Beauty
3. Kaleidoscope - Side Trips

And the five finest cuts:
1. Caretakers of Deception - X+Y=13
2. Third Bardo - Five Years Ahead of My Time
3. The Uncalled For - Do Like Me
4. The Gants - I Wonder
5. The Misunderstood - I can Take You To The Sun

2.) 18 Nov 2017 11:21:58
Was you at Woodstock Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No I am a little bit too young for that, and from the West Coast.}

3.) 18 Nov 2017 11:51:38
Jesus eds2 think your choice of music in some cases is worst than your choice of a football club. You must be on meths mate 😱.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 11:53:18
ed002 have you ever heard forever changes by love? that album my friend is a masterpiece.

{Ed002's Note - I know it very well and saw Arthur Lee play a few times.}

5.) 18 Nov 2017 14:54:00
I’m going to give those a listen Ed.



23 Oct 2017 12:49:48
Lovren needs some time out to get his life together, I dunno if that's the reason he's been playing terrible this last year or so or not but regardless, Klopp needs to recognise his personal problems and give him some time off to get his head straight.


1.) 23 Oct 2017 13:58:22
Never mind lovren, klopp needs too get his head together he should of been pulling heaven an earth too get defenders in, going into season with same defenders that are our weakness an relying on them plus this keeper situation, it's such an important season an we throwing it away with same mistakes and not progressing jus pure criminal too me!

2.) 23 Oct 2017 14:37:39
You may have somehow missed Klopp chasing VVD all summer long then.

3.) 23 Oct 2017 15:19:54
What if Vvd bombs and is next lovern or Klavan.

there is no guarentee that vvd is going to solve all our weakness.

He is playing the same way as Couts for Southampton.

both are not giving their 100%.

4.) 23 Oct 2017 15:48:40
I half wrote this season off after missing our on VVD and Keita. You are right tho hailstones.

5.) 23 Oct 2017 19:58:12
Vvd is not the answer and not for the money quoted, it is at klopps door im not just going to forgive him for having the exact same attitude as rodgers did just because of his reputation.

Get rid.
He’s sublimely talented but can’t be bothered for us anymore so what’s the point in keeping him? we have seen the best of him and we won’t get it back.
His performances of late has reminded me a bit of when we first got him from inter, the odd flash of brilliance but mostly ineffective and inconsistent.
On current form for us he’s worth about the same we bought him for but to Barcelona he’s worth more than 10X that amount so it’s a no brainier to take the money and run and spend it on the defence.
Not to mention his poor attitude will be effecting team morale negativively.

Gomez is looking pretty good there at the minute, I️ would be looking for a partner for him in January rather than one for Matip.

Who cares what the media thinks. As long as Klopp is learning from his mistakes then that’s fine with me.
I think all this rotation recently is so we don’t suffer catastrophic loss of fitness/ form like last Xmas.
I think we focus too closely on individual games and even individual players far too often, got to look at the season as a whole, the goal in the league this season is surely to try and get top 4 again to cement that position and I think we are reasonably well set to achieve that.
The only mistake I think Klopp is making is playing Migs over karius but I can see the reasoning behind it in that he wants to ease in karius gently so the “fans” don’t give him grief again.

Still young and only had a handful of games, not sure he should be written off already.
