edd anyone shown any interest in izzaguire from celtic. I know it will be met with . " he plays in crap scottish lge etc etc"by folk on here. but the fella is a very good lb, doing it against barca and away to milan and a few other occassions in d champs lge, bombs forward and whips a gr8 ball in, can mix in short passes and could adapt to Liverpools game, just wondered if anyone shown any interest {Ed002's Note - There was talk of Manchester United last year but it was unconfirmed tittle-tattle. Since then nothing.}

1.) Think he's a prem player anyway, spose barret reporting ayre in spain 4 montoya, u anything on that edd, think d left back prob is a big one 4 us {Ed002's Note - See previous answers. It may help to know that I don't stalk the staff of the club.}

edd hansen reckons suarez will sign new deal this week. u heard anything on that? {Ed002's Note - Suarez has let a little information out via a "friend" to say the he will stay against his will one more year and then he will leave regardless. This sort of situation cannot be allowed to carry on but I think it will become more difficult to find a buyer with this sort of leakage of information to the media. We'll see.}

5 gold stars

1.) Bit naive Ed if you think players don't get things out there via favoured journos. {Ed002's Note - Would you like to try and explain where I am being naïve? Why not list some other players who have spent this summer dragging their club through the gutter, embarrassing the owners and the manager with repeated interviews, letting it be known that the other players in the team are not good enough etc., etc.?}

2.) Who is the friend out of curiosity Ed? I understand Cavani has done a lot of talking for him! Same with a few others. To be honest I'd rather sell him and buy two top top quality attackers. I think he's fantastic but the team seem better without him. I'd love to see Lamela play for Liverpool! {Ed002's Note - There is a name on one of the transcripts but it is not someone I have heard of or know anything about.}

3.) Hello Eds,
regarding your reply to Suarez situation. You say he will stay for one season and then leave regardless, does this mean he will like to leave even if we achieve European footy?
If that is the case I reckon we should do a deal with Real this season itself. We will have a nice guideline to get a good deal using the figure they are paying for Bale. I reckon we could get a good deal of around 45-50M + Caseimero.

{Ed002's Note - You really need to read the posts more carefully - I did not say that. The price of Bale has absolutely nothing to do with Suarez at all. And Real Madrid are not going to sell Casemiro who only joined them this summer.}

4.) Rooneys people and Bales people have got their message across quite clearly. That's just two off the top of my head. My point is all big clubs have problems of this sort from time to time. I respect your work (as I have said many times) but you always make out that Suarez's actions are somehow unique. Players are selfish and I know for definite that some senior Liverpool players take the view that for all his problems they are better off with LS.

5.) I agree with the editor on this one: having an unhappy, restless player in the squad (especially one as disruptive and divisive as Suarez) could be catastrophic. There seems to be a really good harmony and a work for each other mentality at the moment, I can only see Suarez damaging that. Unfortuntely it is very late in the window so selling him now is fraught with problems (i.e. can we find replacement? Will we need to pay more for said replacement a la Carroll?) which, thanks to Suarez (and I might add the club itself who knew the situation months ago) puts us between a rock and a hard place.

Honestly I wouldn't know what to do if I was the owner right now. IF we have already identified and intend to sign a specific player, fee agreed, then perhaps we can move him on but as that hasn't happened I guess, for better or worse, he has to stay. The only bonus (and I use the term lightly) is that as we have no European football a move in January for a sizeable fee is entirely possible.

The bottom line, however, is that Suarez has done huge damage to our club despite the steadfast backing and support he has received from both staff and fans alike. Its not good enough and ultimately I will be happy when he moves on. We've been let down badly, regardless of his ability as a player Suarez is someone we do not need or want (nor should accept) at our club.



20 Aug 2013 22:32:44
hi edds. just a query. with all the likes of arsenal and utd even us looking for creative midfielders . how come there seems to be little interset in banega? think sthampton wanted him. {Ed002's Note - Southampton and Fiorentina have placed bids for Banega and Inter Milan's long-term interest may still remain.}

Money aside, would you rather start the season with Fekir or Alisson in the side?


1.) 01 Jul 2018 17:15:58
Allison, no doubt.

If I could choose between allison or asensio I would choose asensio.

Good question though, more than half our games last season we could have won with bogan in goal.

2.) 01 Jul 2018 17:25:02
I’m not that sold on Asensio at the price quoted. You’d get Fekir and Becker for that kind of money.

3.) 01 Jul 2018 17:57:22
That's true frankly, I'd take fekir and becket over asensio.

4.) 01 Jul 2018 18:18:07
And have change as well.

5.) 01 Jul 2018 19:26:34
Is becker that good? Serious question I don't watch that much football but I've watched him a few times now and I can't see what the fuss is.

I'd send the money on courtios if he does leave Chelsea.

6.) 01 Jul 2018 19:49:11
Courtois wants to return to Spain. He has zero interest in moving here.

7.) 01 Jul 2018 20:12:28
Great question, Alisson for those curious is currently one of the best goal keepers in the world. At 25 years of age (young for a keeper) he would improve most teams and drastically improve Liverpool. Some will judge him only on the Roma Vs Liverpool games (though he was hardly at fault for the goals) and his world cup performances, which in my eyes is a mistake. Look at De Gea. Not sure how realistic a transfer it is at the minute, but still.

Fekir is a fantastic talent, who's definitely ready for the next step. He's primarily a CAM/ Second striker who can adequately cover the wings (though he's much less effective there) . He suits our style of play and would improve the team.

With the way our defence has looked as well as the arrival of Keita and Fabinho, I'm going to have to pick Fekir. A top class keeper would be welcomed, but top teams can often get away with average keepers. Look at City with Joe Hart or Madrid with Casillas. Van Dijk has been a fantastic addition and Lovren has improved drastically with him next to him, Keita and Fabinho add steel to the midfield. Assuming Karius can adequately recover from the appalling fan reaction we'll be tough to score against. Fekir would help break defensive teams down, which for me personally, is what's missing from a title challenge.

Apologies for the absurdly long post.

8.) 01 Jul 2018 20:14:09
Also I've seen his name thrown out a couple of times, but Courtois is not an option. He is looking to move to a Madrid club in order to be with his family, not just a move from Chelsea. He's only relevant in terms of the knock on effect his transfer might have.

9.) 01 Jul 2018 20:31:21
He would drastically improve Liverpool?
Can he cover midfield and attacking positions too?
He would undoubtedly make us a stronger unit at the back, but to claim we'd improve drastically is over-egging it.

10.) 01 Jul 2018 20:45:02
Guilty of hyperbole, meant that he was a drastic improvement on what we had. Hope my other points and conclusion demonstrated how I think he would impact the team overall and my views on the keeper position.



05 Jun 2018 19:00:28
Am I the only one who thinks that Fabinho will play RB next season? Most posts on here suggest that he will play in a holding role next season, with Keita and potentially Fekir alongside him. That would be awesome, don’t get me wrong, but We have an abundance of CMs on the books already and really can’t see Klopp benching them or selling them all after a great season, although I think some will/ have moved on.
Ed001 has said that we have been looking for a RB for a few seasons now and I can’t imagine us going out and buying one now with the other positions that we need to improve. This brings me on a question.
Has anyone seen him play at RB enough to give an opinion on how good he is there? MK speaks highly of him and that I respect, but he was referring to him playing in midfield I think, and all the clips I have watched are him playing midfield also. Anyway, any input welcome guys and can’t wait to see him play regardless of position.


1.) 05 Jun 2018 19:26:07
I don’t think he’s been bought for right back primarily and, by all accounts, the player now sees himself as a midfield player. However, he may get games there, depending on the form of TAA and Gomez (I don’t think Clyne will figure unless he upset his game massively in pre-season.

Klopp has seen his current midfield press and press until they tire late on or can’t do it from game to game. He will rotate midfield players depending on tactics, form, opposition or injuries. Don’t forget the Ox will probably miss 3 months and others will come back late to training after the World Cup. I can see us making a heavy play for the League Cup this year in order to get some silverware on the table early and take a bit of pressure off Klopp. To do this he will need to be able to bring quality players when he rests others.

In my opinion Fabinho has been bought for midfield.

2.) 05 Jun 2018 19:13:00
Personally as per Ed001, think he will play cm and provide cover at RB should the team require it.

That’s gives us Trent to keep learning at RB before he eventually moves in to midfield, Gomez as cover if required and Fabinho as emergency cover as and when.

As for our midfield, Can is gone, Lallana may look for more first team football with youth as cover.

3.) 05 Jun 2018 20:22:50
I don't think Fab will be playing at RB except if need be or something. He is a DM who can score goals, defend and bring the ball out. That is the position he has been playing DM for 2 years npw since he was moved there by Monaco manager Jardim. If he would play RB, it should be for emergency purposes and nothing more, IMO.

4.) 05 Jun 2018 20:29:35
Interesting reading the thoughts on the midfield area and potential starters next season, if the reported signing of Fekir does come to fruition, adding to our 2 new arrivals
And current personnel we will for once have a deeper squad, be nice to have quality on the bench as well as in the starting 11. I personally feel that this is why we limped to 4th and lost the final, we just did not have enough left in the tank with injuries to the Ox
And Can . Madrid in the final could call upon a 100 million pound substitute!
Can't wait for the new season!

5.) 05 Jun 2018 20:45:43
And you want to bench TAA? Really? Who are the abundance of midfielders referring to here? They are not good enough why we are signing midfielders! Fabinho will play the sitting role.

6.) 05 Jun 2018 20:45:43

7.) 05 Jun 2018 20:59:15
I think one of the eds already mentioned, but I can see Fabinho covering TAA when he goes foward and vice versus, creating another element of confusion for the opposition. Could work well but I expect his ‘starting’ position, if you want to call it that being centrally.

8.) 06 Jun 2018 02:41:11
I think Klopp with introduce players slowly so we may start the season with a midfield of Hendo, Keita and Milner.

Longer term I hope we go to Fabinho and Hendo deep, Mane, Keita and Salah behind Bobby in a 4-2-3-1.

9.) 06 Jun 2018 03:37:14
Harry, I didn’t say that I wanted TAA on the bench. I would be more than happy letting him and Gomez rotate at RB, to be honest I think it will be the only way that either of them will get regular match time next season. It’s been covered on here multiple times that Klopp doesn’t see either of them as the long term solution to RB and their futures will be in other positions. He has been actively looking to bring in a RB for two years now and I can’t see him buying one now with other positions being a higher priority.
The midfielders who I was referring to are the OX, a Klopp buy only last year and has done quite well in his first half season for us. Gini, who also has done quite well and hasn’t been here very long either. And our club captain, who again has had a good season. You can probably add Milner to this list also, who arguably was our best midfielder in the CL last season, breaking records as he went.



05 Jun 2018 18:45:32
Am I the only one who thinks Fabinho has been.


1.) 05 Jun 2018 19:06:19
Sorry, the rest coming 👆.

5.) 05 Jun 2018 20:10:56
3 year olds and phones.
They are just as competent with them as my parents!

6.) 05 Jun 2018 20:31:21
Do we take it that the 3 year old won the battle for the possession of the phone? Is that you Sturridge?

7.) 05 Jun 2018 22:25:13
The answer is “yes”.



24 May 2018 06:09:12
What’s everyone’s thoughts about Zidane as a manager? I always thought that he was just a guy who knew how to manage the big egos in a club like Madrid, partly down to the respect he gets from his playing days. I might be miles off with this opinion as I don’t watch much Spanish league, so would appreciate any input.


1.) 24 May 2018 06:17:26
End of the day if he beats us in the final. He's done what no manager has ever done and somehow, has to be regarded as one of the greats.

2.) 24 May 2018 06:21:42
He has won 2 CL with a medicore Madrid ( that’s what people say here about Madrid ) which makes him one of the best ever!

3.) 24 May 2018 06:32:04
He’s not going to beat us in the final 👍.

4.) 24 May 2018 07:10:50
If he pull off a hat trick of CL's he is arguably the only manager to do that in modern era and that just if it happens will be a fact that shuts any and every argument against him. So called current best managers bar of today (bar mourinho) have not even won one CL and he might just win 3 on the trot.
His problems in league have been well documented and there are suggestions in Spain that if Zidane looses the final he looses the job at Madrid. I think there problem in league are because of a weak ass squad and ronaldo not hitting expected heights this season in the league.
As a manager i don't think Zidane has a clue about tactics game management or even subtitutions. But he does have a great respect in the dressing room. i think he could be a good motivator too, definitely has won every laurel the game has to offer. But i do feel he is perfect for madrid, he loves the club and i don't see why players won't join him.

5.) 24 May 2018 07:23:43
AK rubbish - Madrid having a week ass squad? Have you seen Barcelona’s. Atletico in comparison even Valencia who weren’t far behind and beat them this season. His titles speak for themselves especially if he wins on Saturday. But I don’t rate Zidane as a tactician, I agree with all the comments about him working with egos and the fact that he commands respect from everyone that plays for him.
But I know plenty of Madrid fans that believe he hasn’t got a clue when picking teams for games or making subs during matches. He solely relies on some of the best players in the world turn up on the day and perform. They don’t regard him as improving players ability (unlike what you could say for Guardiola or Klopp) and they feel this could lead to a lot of their better younger talented players wanting to leave.

6.) 24 May 2018 07:30:26
Weak ass squad? Reals squad is quality and the best in la liga imo. They have massively underperformed this season in La Liga.

7.) 24 May 2018 07:57:54
Their team has gaping holes in it but I'm not sure it is weak. They have average defenders, average keepers, and aside from Ronaldo, average forwards. That midfield is stellar though; Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic, Ceballos and Casemeiro. The only team in Europe to better that is Man City.

Luckily for us, our midfield is perfect for disrupting a top class midfield who want the ball. I'm not sure a squad with Ronaldo in it can ever be called weak though. He has over 40 Champions League goals in the last 3 seasons alone. This is his competition. It's up to us to take it from him.

Zidane is the profiteer of Ronaldo brilliance.

8.) 24 May 2018 08:19:15
I have no idea about him, his tactics, his diplomacy behind the scenes or his ability to motivate his players. He looks very smart though on the touch line.

9.) 24 May 2018 08:25:44
I would equate Zidane at RM to Rodgers at Liverpool. The overall standard of players is higher at Madrid, obviously, but I truly believe that both (relatively) inexperienced managers benefitted from having a group of (in Madrids case) or a (in Liverpool's case) star players at the top of their game - Suarez for us, obvs!

The true test, if he gets that chance, is how Zidane copes bringing through the next crop of galacticos. If he manages to reproduce similar form with 'his' players, then I will rightly salute his managerial ability.

I posted a couple of years back that I have so much more confidence in Klopp than I had in Rodgers, despite the fact we almost won the league with the latter.



20 May 2018 21:15:36
Hi Ed002, hope you are well? Just wondering what your favourite tipple is? Just opened a bottle of red myself. You seem to be in a sharing mood tonight so if you can provide us with your go to beverage then maybe we can club together and buy you a coca libre or two for some new information?


{Ed002's Note - I think Macca and the Eds will do just fine thanks.}

1.) 20 May 2018 21:23:37
Oh Ed002, you will always be my favourite. And who says flattery gets gets you nowhere 😉.

2.) 20 May 2018 23:24:14
Great question stars whilst we're trying to get through the week.

Let's think, would he/ she like the bland ribena his home state churns out, Zinfandel anyone, no!

Bordeaux, Burgundy maybe, but my guess is a top quality Rioja grand reserve.

Maybe the playing time thing was because it was a word cup year? If so he could be more relaxed about it now. Can’t see it happening to be honest, but would be a great signing for us.

He is playing regularly at RB, and that’s what he really needs. We are already over run with midfielders and can’t see him pushing any of the starters out for game time. Keep him at RB for me.

We can’t just keep on buying players. We have had the best transfer window I can remember. For years I have wanted only to buy a few players that improve the first team and we have done that. Let’s concentrate on getting a few players off the books who aren’t going g to get much game time.

He had his chances last season and didn’t deliver. Not worth the wages and I would rather let someone younger get game time tbh. Maybe a different league would be better for DS.
