Eds, any chance of any player arriving tonight? Demirbay would be great.


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 19:25:47
Come on Ed, please spill the beans.

{Ed001's Note - don't get too excited, Liverpool have a tendency to let us down after all. It is more about outs tonight.}

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:26:48
Don’t tease people ed lol
Even when we have made deadline day deals when was the last time it went so late in the day with no news and we managed to get somebody signed up?
Remember the yarmolenko fiasco lol.

{Ed001's Note - Ayre's finest hour that was.}

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:27:28
Jesus Ed1 you've got me more excited now mate, going to crack open a beer and chill out lol.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 19:30:06
Ed001 is it nabby or is there someone else in the offing.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't expect Keita mate. They never got a replacement in that I am aware of anyway, could have missed it like as I have been so busy.}

5.) 31 Jan 2018 19:31:29
Is Demirbay that player Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. Though it is Liverpool so don't get excited.}

6.) 31 Jan 2018 19:36:33
Interesting who can we sign now.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 19:38:37
Who Ed1? Or am I reading too much onto your yes?

8.) 31 Jan 2018 19:38:49
Any chance of a player you would be pleased to see join us arriving tonight Ed 001?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know.}

9.) 31 Jan 2018 19:39:16
Evening ed001.

Showing my ignorance here.

Demirbay? Any good and would he be a first team starter? What positron?!


{Ed001's Note - not seen him play that I can remember sorry.}

10.) 31 Jan 2018 19:40:48
who is the player Ed001?

11.) 31 Jan 2018 19:42:39
U winding us up edo1.

12.) 31 Jan 2018 19:44:10
Thanks for the reply Ed001. Hopefully they can surprise us.

13.) 31 Jan 2018 19:49:37
So is it true that his representatives are in liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know where his reps are but they do not need to be in Liverpool to complete a deal.}

14.) 31 Jan 2018 19:51:34
Ed literally just said the player was Karim Demirbay.

So why are people asking who it is?

15.) 31 Jan 2018 20:03:32
Cheers ed, appreciated mate.

Played well against us in the Champs League qualifiers.

Fingers crossed.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 20:07:38
they would have asked before he confirmed who it was.

17.) 31 Jan 2018 20:09:17
LFC-S MANGO. Because mate prople ask and then the reply go's up before some asking the question. If that makes sense.

Thank ed for sharing mate. let's see.

18.) 31 Jan 2018 20:09:27
Was it not Konoplyanka Ayre tried negotiating on deadline day? Or have i got him and Yarmolenko mixed up for all these years lol?

{Ed001's Note - no I think you are right, Yarmolenko is the one Everton were always linked with. My mistake.}

19.) 31 Jan 2018 20:12:39
But has the club made contact with hoffeinheim? what would the fee be around since the 32 million euro release clause is activated in the summer.

20.) 31 Jan 2018 20:22:08
Trust me on this, it won't happen in this window at least!

I'm near 100% sure on this, I heard about this going on in the background weeks and months ago, but not for this window unless it's a loan to buy which is of course even more unlikely, sorry.

21.) 31 Jan 2018 20:31:40
And u didn’t care to mention it Kev nice of u mate.

22.) 31 Jan 2018 20:32:52
Leipzig announced Lookman on loan from Everton. Maybe in Naby's place (or wishful thinking)?

23.) 31 Jan 2018 20:40:57
hasnt the german window closed.

24.) 31 Jan 2018 20:51:12
They can still sell but not buy. This one will go to the wire by the looks of it. Hopefully we can get it over the line. Looked decent in the Champions League Qualifiers.

25.) 31 Jan 2018 20:53:52
The German window hasn't closed Mr RED, I don't think lol. Ed🤔.

26.) 31 Jan 2018 21:01:30
Klopp literally said there is no chance of signings.

27.) 31 Jan 2018 21:01:49
I did mention this back in early January mate, if you use the search function and search for Demerbay (had the wrong spelling at the time, apologies about that), the whole conversation should come up mate.

28.) 31 Jan 2018 21:06:07
Kev did tell us though, Adam? 🤔

09 Jan 2018 15:41:08
"A mate of mine who lives in Germany has told me that we had scouts watching Karim Demerbay (spelling is probably wrong) of Hoffenheim very recently.

He is a Turkish-German lad who has turned out for Germany a few times. He's very technical and has wicked left footed free kicks. Not blessed with pace but can dribble well and a pretty powerful left foot.

I remember some of his indirect free kicks caused us problems (as well as our overly high line) in the Champions League play offs.

Not sure if this is a Lallana long term replacement being looked at if true, doubt it's to replace Coutinho but we'll see. "

OIrish Kev 1.

29.) 31 Jan 2018 21:10:47
Don’t know much about him to be honest, had a look on wiki and it’s got a great story of when he was handed a fantastic punishment by the German FA for sexist comments.

30.) 31 Jan 2018 21:14:40
I just meant today mate I do remember the talk at the time mate I think he’d be a good signing we do lack a left footer in the midfield.

31.) 31 Jan 2018 21:26:11
A few of those guys around still sadly Mikey yeah.
Also see the most recent Sevilla manager's profile/ backstory, although he still denies it to this day (can't remember his name, sorry, he was in charge until around November/ December 2017).

MK, Thanks for searching that out for me, much appreciated mate - top man as always!

Adam, no worries mate, I still don't see this happening, probably not even in the summer, he's not a bad player but not necessarily good enough for what we would be hoping for.
Reminds me of Lallana personally but not as good.

32.) 31 Jan 2018 21:36:01
Really Kev I kinda see him as a xabi Alonso type of player mate just my thoughts having seen abut of him think he’d do alryt for us def a Emre replacement .

33.) 31 Jan 2018 21:45:58
I doubt we can get the deal done at this time?

{Ed001's Note - and me. Early nights all round I think. I hope anyway as I am knackered!}

34.) 31 Jan 2018 21:53:40
Is there a serious interest or is it one of those if it happens situations?

35.) 31 Jan 2018 21:54:01
You could well be right Adam, I honestly haven't seen enough of him mate to be 100% sure.

He just reminded me of Lallana when I did see him for some reason, might have been the Heineken :)

36.) 01 Feb 2018 03:48:10
From what I was told earlier in the month, it is/ was serious interest but a few things had to occur first for it to happen in this window.



06 Aug 2017 03:36:56
Are we still interested in Inaki Williams? tormented Dejan and the defense last night.


{Ed001's Note - yes, but he is not moving.}

1.) 06 Aug 2017 06:23:39
That really ain't no good enough reason, for us not to chase him for the next couple of weeks. Seems we tend to target the unavailable players this time around.

2.) 06 Aug 2017 09:41:34
If you chased every forward who gave Lovren the run around the squad would have about 20'000 forwards.

3.) 06 Aug 2017 10:39:50
Good luck chasing him, he looks pretty swift to me.



09 Jul 2017 05:03:55
Hi Eds,

Have we shown any interest in Marvin Plattenhardt? LB from Hertha Berlin.


{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 07:18:15
I rate him, can take a mean free-kick, too!

2.) 09 Jul 2017 11:07:54
Spent most of the season injured didn't he?

{Ed002's Note - Therew has been absolutely no interest from Liverpool in the player.}



05 Jul 2017 14:16:20
Hi Eds,

Josh Tymon just turned down a new contract with Hull. Could we sign him?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 05 Jul 2017 15:02:01
He's going to Stoke.



04 Jul 2017 08:38:18
With Monaco signing Terence Kongolo, do you think that Mendy will now sign for Man City? Shame, probably the best young left back in Europe. I know this next question is repetitive, but what LB's are we considering other than Robertson. Surely we can do better than a relegated LB.


{Ed002's Note - Yes MC are pushing to complete the transfer. Liverpool are unable to sign their first choice left back and they have seemingly dropped interest in the others but remain keen on Robertson.}

1.) 04 Jul 2017 10:00:30
Thank you ed. So correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that we are paying absolutely zero attention to our defense, and will end up with an overflow of midfield players. Surely if we were to sign Ox and Keita, either Wijnaldum, Lallana or Henderson would have to consider their future at the club.

{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool are keen on Robertson - I said that in my reply.

As I have said before, Liverpool cannot keep adding players without others leaving.}

2.) 04 Jul 2017 10:09:43
Ed, pardon me if this is naive, however, Is Robertson seemingly the LB choice due potential overspend in other positions being anticipated?

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - No, he is a player Klopp likes. He can't get his first choice so right now he is the one the club wants. Personally I thought Joe Gomez should be given another chance.}

3.) 04 Jul 2017 10:20:51
I agree Ed02 with Gomez given a chance, but for me at Centre back, just hope he gets it!

4.) 04 Jul 2017 11:14:29
Gomez wants to play at centre half. He sees that as his best position. Likely to go on loan to a Premier League team for a season providing we buy a centre half.

{Ed002's Note - Gomez has never played centre half at this level, only at Charlton. If Gomez is not prepared to play left back then his Liverpool career will be over if Klopp adds another centre back. Being 5th choice will be no fun.}

5.) 04 Jul 2017 11:43:49
Playing Gomez at LB is just an awful idea. He played a handful of games at LB, and got roasted by pacy wingers. He is a CB and should play there. Klopp needs to be honest with the lad and let him know where he stands in the club's future. A loan to a club which will play him at CB seems the best move imo. Playing Gomez at Lb will create the same width issues that we faced when Milner played there.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 11:46:02

Can I please ask who is/ was the first choice target for left back please?


{Ed025's Note - mendy i think mate..

7.) 04 Jul 2017 15:34:44
Of all the high profile players were linked with it will be ox who signs. Vvd could be messed up already but I still think there is hope of signing him. Robertson will sign too imo.

8.) 04 Jul 2017 16:41:42
Last month an Ed said we could add 2 players before we have to sell. Can you please tell me where we stand in regards to squad size? Can't remember if they said this before or after salah and solanke. Have any fringe players gone out?

9.) 04 Jul 2017 19:40:24
Gomez is a CB and even tho he is untested at this level, he should play there cos he will be destroyed at LB cos he will be an easy target for the opposition.

Hi eds,

Just wondering if we are looking for any back-up left backs this summer? I like Moreno as a person, but he isn't a left back and is often defensively inept. Also, how likely are these signings?


Lucas Torreira


Personally, I would love Oblak, Fekir, Lemar and either Werner or Kluivert.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool got the LB they wanted last year. All of the players you have listed will be signing.}

1.) 03 Jun 2018 15:44:52
😂 brilliant Ed 002.

2.) 03 Jun 2018 15:57:58
Will we be signing Bozo Texino?

3.) 03 Jun 2018 16:18:40
Perfect response to a stupid question, it’s not football manager.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 17:29:20
Nothing to do with this post really but would prefer kluivert over Dembele.

5.) 04 Jun 2018 08:35:15
Hahaha, okay I can't resist having a go in Ed002's shoes.

Butland = 99%
Alisson = 111%
Oblak = ⅝

Fekir = purple
Lemar = cheesecake
Bernard = twelvty
Lucas Torreira = -13.14159265359
Talisca = Yes

Werner = 20 fl oz
Dembele = Four x Dembeles
Pulisic = Spotted at a chippy in Bolton
Kluivert = taking up the assistant manager's role after the World Cup.



08 Feb 2018 06:32:33
Hi eds,

Any update on Can?


{Ed001's Note - what kind of update? Do you want to know how his appointment at the dentist went? Only it went well but he has had to accept his teeth will never shine like Bobby's.}

1.) 08 Feb 2018 06:46:28
There was a report on the echo yesterday that he'd signed a contract with Juve. Any idea if that's true or not?

If he had signed would it be public knowledge or could they keep it a secret?

{Ed001's Note - there is no reason to keep it secret. I do expect him to end up there though.}

2.) 08 Feb 2018 08:54:29
Putney, reports confirmed Can had signed with Juve weeks ago. around the time mahrez was walking into anfield. 😜
Kiddiing mate, Seriously tho all will be revealed at seasons end. Hope he keeps performing til then!

3.) 08 Feb 2018 09:10:02
I say ‘shine on you crazy diamond’ 😁.

4.) 08 Feb 2018 07:54:31
Nor will his star ED1 ;)

{Ed001's Note - good point.}

5.) 08 Feb 2018 09:22:37
Hahaha love it Ed.

{Ed001's Note - not as much as Bobby loves his teeth though!}

6.) 08 Feb 2018 09:33:19
If Can leaves, then he leaves and we move on.



31 Jan 2018 22:05:09
Hi eds,

seeming that we won't be signing anyone tonight, could you clarify I few things for me.
1- Do the owners expect klopp to end every transfer window with profit from player sales?
2- Why didn't we re-invest the money?

Also I would love to know your opinions on the owners, do you think they lack ambition?


{Ed001's Note - of course they don't. Re-invest what money? We didn't get £140m cash handed over in duffel bags to spend. Klopp makes the final decision on all transfers, the owners are fully behind him and what he chooses to do.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 22:27:44
In your opinion ed do u think this is a gamble for top 4 ambitions not making the squad stronger, we are relying on front 3 too stay fit an in form, as we have seen mane looks of the pace lately, if any of the above happens we are relying on solanke who is raw, an Danny ings who is coming back of 2 years injury hell, then there is woodburn I have faith in but he again is totally raw at the required level . I jus can't get my head around the club not wanting too strengthen, do u agree or do u have faith in this squad too carry us through.

{Ed001's Note - it is a gamble when you buy players as well. There is enough there to get us top 4.}

2.) 31 Jan 2018 22:27:50
But we will still receive that money in instalments, just because we haven't got it all up front, what was stopping us doing similar and getting a replacement for coutinho? We will not see that money! Fsg play a blinder again! 💲💲💲.

{Ed001's Note - why do people continue to blame FSG? Klopp is the one making the decisions on transfers.}

3.) 31 Jan 2018 22:34:08
FSG were happy to have spent big in the summer on both. Keita and van Dijk whilst keeping Pipco. So I think that answers that one.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 22:34:13
It’s not just a case of spending the money. If that was the issue we could have bid £140m for VVD.
Bringing in new players is a delicate process. If players think there will be a huge player turnover twice a season they will instantly feel unsettled. Sometimes a player’s personality just doesn’t fit with the team.

In the past our “near deadline” signings have included Andy Carroll and Mario Balotelli. 2 players who had a lot of issues to say the least.
Signing a player requires a lot of preparation and hard work. Rushing the process at the last minute is not a good recipe for success.
Sure we all expected PipCo to go but that doesn’t mean the right player with the right mentality will be available. Maybe the right player got injured?

There is no FSG mystery underhand plan. We just didn’t have the opportunity to get the right player in.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 22:37:48
So klopp's whole motto is not to panic buy? He must have serious confidence in his players, because majority of the fans believe we need reinforcements. Excited but terrified to see how this season plays out.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 22:51:19
Well said Ed1 mate.

7.) 01 Feb 2018 00:36:09
I'm backing Klopp's trust in his players. Ox and salah came in. to me they more than make up for losing coutinho. especially as all the facts this season showed that we haven't missed coutinho at all. People missing that we much better depth this season compared to other seasons when we'd lose torres, suarez etc. I mean a season or so ago our bench was full of kids. now we can rotate between seasoned pros. it's good stuff and more to add in the summer.

our useless squad is now 3rd in the table. so looking forward to them continuing to rise up to the challenge rest of the way. back to back top 4 is no mean feat, especially for us as we've not been in the CLs back to back seasons since whenever it was.

8.) 01 Feb 2018 03:12:31
Not missed coutinho? Sure could have done with his key for the west brom and Swansea games.

9.) 01 Feb 2018 10:06:21
Yeah cause things like that never happened before Coutinho left. Don't put him on a pedestal.

10.) 02 Feb 2018 00:37:40
I would have thought the stupidity of panic buys had been very well demonstrated over the years. There seem to be some people who want a “name” signed. We have unearthed fabulous players by being careful and buying the right players at the right time. Sure not every one works out but we do ok.

You appoint a good manager and then you let him get on with it. Klopp is totally right not to panic buy. The one thing I personally would like him to do is sort out Can to sign that contract. He’s not perfect but he’s bloody good. Get behind the manager on transfers.



21 Jan 2018 14:32:08
Could we target Quincy Promes?


1.) 21 Jan 2018 14:46:50
Search function :-)

2.) 21 Jan 2018 14:57:35
What with?

I’m sure we could, but I don’t think we need him unless we’re selling someone.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 15:07:20
I think it's getting to the point that some fans want the club to buy for the sake of buying. It doesn't matter who or for what position once it's for a high price.

4.) 21 Jan 2018 16:12:50
we will be interested once he becomes a Southampton player!



15 Jan 2018 11:59:08
Hi Eds,

After Emre's beautiful performance last night, are the club attempting to re-start negotiations to extend his contract?


{Ed025's Note - beautiful performance?, i dont know what game you were watching benny but he did not do much for me mate, i think liverpool are resigned that he will be at juve next season..

1.) 15 Jan 2018 12:11:51
Ed025, as soon as Can was replaced by Milner our midfield fell to pieces, I’ve accused him of coasting this season but that was a top performance at the base of midfield.

{Ed025's Note - really?, they scored 2 goals after he appeared MrD which for someone playing at the base of midfield is hardly a testament to how well he played for me mate..

2.) 15 Jan 2018 12:25:07
Have you misunderstood the post Ed? Your comment seems to contradict what you said.

{Ed025's Note - yes i did mate..sorry..

3.) 15 Jan 2018 13:17:26
I thought Emre Can was everywhere yesterday particularly in the first half. Strong in the tackle and always breaking up the play which is exactly what you need from a CDM.

For my money he plays better in that position than Henderson from a defensive stand point and il be gutted when he leaves as he is a real warrior.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 13:35:19
Playing better than Milner in that position doesn’t make you world class though to be fair, Milner was god awful.

It was obvious last week that we needed to sign another midfielder. Why did he suddenly decide that? I love klopp and everything he's done for us, but some of his decisions are seriously questionable.


{Ed001's Note - performances have proved the need, plus we were busy with other players that the club tried to sign.}

Think Matip playing alongside VVD will do wonders for him, don't think we need another center back, instead I would go for a new RB.

RB- Peirera (Porto) 30 m
DM- Savic (Lazio) 60m
ST- Werner (Lepizig) 40m
AM- Lemar 70m.

Dilakh, then why continue to play him if he keeps on struggling with a heel injury? It makes no sense whatsoever to play a player who is not in good form, captain or not. Perhaps I was a bit harsh, but its frustrating to see attacks break down because henderson wants to play it safe.

29 Jul 2017 17:44:16
Why wouldn't we be looking at him? Very similar players and Seri is better defensively.


{Ed002's Note - The same reason as Liverpool haven't been looking at Djibril Sow.}
