Hello Ed's

Any chance you are in a position to confirm that a fee has been agreed with Roma? Echo and others have reported its has, but I won't believe it until it's confirmed on this site.
Love u all

Bobby Banana

{Ed002's Note - I can't confirm it absolutely but I can say that someone involved was told over a breakfast time call with someone just off the coast of Antibe the likelihood of another bidder at that price is very slim.}

I know it’s a lot to pay for a keeper, but the way I look at it is LFC will have payed Roma £100m for Salah and Alisson. Makes it sound much better to look at the deal through rose-tinted glasses.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 13:45:28
Ed002 is so beautiful and mysterious.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 14:17:58
Anyone actually watched him play and has a review on him? Not seen him much other then when we smashed them and then the WC!

4.) 18 Jul 2018 14:08:12
Cheers ED002.

5.) 18 Jul 2018 14:29:27
It's an absolutely horrific fee for a keeper, even by today's mad standards, but it does show the extent of the problem LFC have, that it is worth paying 70m+ to properly solve it.

6.) 18 Jul 2018 14:56:33
Let's not all whinge now about the fee we've all been saying we need a marquee signing for that position 😁.

7.) 18 Jul 2018 15:39:23
It's an astronomical fee for a human, but I thought that for VVD and we all saw his instant impact, therefore we have to pay top dollar to have a top keeper behind him (IF it's all true of course) . Unfortunately it's a sign of the footballing times and the game's gone sadly. but, I'd love it, love it if we get him. he's the final piece of the jigsaw almost.

8.) 18 Jul 2018 15:41:45
Ignoring the fact that all fees these days are exorbitant, is paying so much for a keeper really surprising. We have all said a top keeper would have put us considerably closer to city, that utd would be nowehere without de gea. Paying large fees for such an important position shouldn't be that much of a shock.

9.) 18 Jul 2018 15:47:29
But if it's true, it's a position solved for the next ten years perhaps.

10.) 18 Jul 2018 15:58:06
Who stays as number 2 ward or karius or neither.

11.) 18 Jul 2018 18:15:35
To be fair 60 odd million is nowhere near in proportion to the fee Buffon was bought for in 2001 compared to the world record fee at the time (30m compared to Figo for 37m) . Judging on percentages I'd say it's no surprise that top keepers will start catching up in cost. There just haven't been many major keeper transfers in a few years, have there? VVD won't be the most expensive defender for that long either.

12.) 18 Jul 2018 18:42:09
People stop complaining about the fee, Buffon went for what was it, 51 million? In 2001! 51mil in 2001 would be about 500mil in today's market xD it is about time the transfer record for a goalkeeper got beat.

13.) 18 Jul 2018 18:47:04
Bardzo. Buffon was 53 million Euros. Considering that was 17 years ago, it doesn't seem that extortionate.

14.) 18 Jul 2018 20:58:11
Ok fine, I was talking Pounds not Euros. Back then the exchange rate placed the GBP as being far more stronger than now (or the Euro being weaker) . But the point still stands.

Question for the eds, do you think this will be my breakthrough season where I finally become a regular poster who makes meaningful posts regarding LFC of will I stagnate for another season as a constant reader with nothing meaningful to contribute? I have been registered on this site for years and every preseason I think I will make that next step but newer posters seem to come in and block my path. Starting to think my career as a rumours poster is being stifled by the club and maybe a loan or transfer to another clubs rumour site might be needed to kick start my posting. If that is the case I refuse to go to Everton's, Man U's or Chelsea's site, well might change my mind about the Chelsea site as the bright lights of London could persuade me.

Bobby there were lots of big word's in there that I didn't understand but you get my vote mate.

Hey Bobby.

You sound like you've been tapped up.

3.) 08 Jul 2017 02:59:38
This post isn't useful either!

Hey Banana, I have never been a fan to be honest and think you should move on. Your name reminds me of that famous slip by Gerrard which cost us the title. You are yellow boy, try the norwich page, because you bruise to easily and have a soft underbelly Arsenal may be the page. You are too sweet for Everton or utd as their post have more of a bitter and sour taste. Our page is probably best for a Banana as we are often split. Good luck where ever you end up.



09 May 2017 19:58:56
Thanks for the match review ed001!
Two points I would like to make, firstly what do you (and fellow posters) feel is the reason for the lack of movement and attacking intend in recent weeks. Do you think it's down to instructions from the coaching staff to try and improve the defence and the players have yet to find the right balance and are maybe being over cautious, or is it down to their over reliance on Mane? Secondly I have got to agree with you about the Milner penalty incident, quite embrassing how most of the team reacted to it. The only player who came to his aid was Coutinho. I only played the game at a low senior level, but if that had happened in my day half the team would have jumped in. Where was the big mean centre half or the midfield enforcer. The only leader we seem to have it Henderson. The only one to go anywhere near to Milners aid was probably the smallest player on the pitch. Unless the players fight for each other, what chance has the club. I think this is a very worrying sign.

Bobby Banana

{Ed001's Note - I think it is both those two factors and the lack of a on pitch leadership driving them on. And thank you BB.}

1.) 09 May 2017 20:35:15
I'd rather go back to all out attack and let a few in because ATM it's dire. Really hard to watch.

2.) 09 May 2017 22:00:20
Spot on, Bobby. I played at amateur level in France myself and I had never seen that happen before that none of a player's teammates went in there to stop that nonsense. Milner was prolly not himself BUT he got NO help from any of his teammates apart from the smallest player on the pitch, which is disgraceful. Our team lacks leaders even tho players like Can, Matip and Lovren should be the ones taking that responsibility. One more thing to iron out in the summer, IMO.

3.) 09 May 2017 22:05:53
Milner had a few choices, he could simply have walked away, and not let the goalie try and intimadate him, he could have stuck up for himself, and not put his head down, and look like he was a the weak one, if the ref had been side on, while booking a player, he would have spotted that the goalie was in Milnera space, while also messing up the actual penalty spot . what happened is that with all the mind games Southampton got up to, they did indeed put Milner off, and his penalty kick was not good enough .

4.) 10 May 2017 03:15:41
he also had the option after forster had finished trash talking of electing a team mate to take the kick, meaning forster had just wasted his time with his mind games.

5.) 10 May 2017 11:34:36
What wound me up was that the linesman was standing 10 yards away from Forster and did absolutely nothing, didn't even notify the Ref of Forster's actions!

Linesmen really have become gutless over the last few years, I notice it all the time when I'm at the match (become a bit obsessed with it in truth) that they wait for the Ref to make the decision on which team is awarded a throw in before they raise their flag.

But in the end of the day Milner should have shown a bit of aggression back to Forster and stood up for himself and our big, physical players (Can, Lucas, Lovren, Matip, Can) should have come to Milner's aid and stood up to Forster too. I do think we are too nice, when was the last time our players got involved in a bit of handbags with the opposition? Klopp needs to get a bit of steel and fighting mentality into the players, its what Spurs have lacked for decades and Pochettino has instilled in them that has pushed them from also-ran's to challengers.

6.) 10 May 2017 12:48:10
well said scarface, we need a steve McMahon type player in the team, even brucie would have ran the length of the pitch to help out a team mate in that situation, we really need to man up and start fighting fire with fire, we cannot go forward with a soft underbelly.



09 May 2017 08:27:51
Morning Ed001. I've been checking the FN&V site and a review of the Southampton match hasn't appeared yet, have you posted it elsewhere or not doing one for the game mate. Always an interesting read but understand if you are too busy or the game was that rubbish you can't bring yourself to watch it back and write a review.

Bobby Banana

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I was just in the middle of doing the Liverpool XI and forgot. Usually someone asks for one and reminds me. I will have to do it later now as I am just on my phone at the moment as I am waiting for a medical.}

1.) 09 May 2017 09:16:11
Ed001 Which club are u signing for? :-p.

{Ed001's Note - Al Shabab.....}

2.) 09 May 2017 10:01:07
Al kebab more likely.

{Ed001's Note - believe me the level of footie here, even you could get in a team, even though you don't have my supreme level of fitness and chiselled physique....}

3.) 09 May 2017 10:45:41
Haha! Ed001 i think they are more likely to pay u weekly wages in oil rather than actual cash! :-p.

{Ed001's Note - they are govt subsidised mate, they have no shortage of cash.}



25 Sep 2016 16:59:55
With the team doing well and everybody on site getting on, the only thing missing is a podcast. Any sign of one in the near future Ed001?

Bobby Banana

{Ed001's Note - hopefully soon mate. It is just getting time.}

I can confirm it's me! I'm 42 and only played as a central defender near the end of my playing career when my legs were gone, but Klopp was desperate and I'd do anything for the club. I'm only on £35k a week so was relatively cheap as well! Don't shoot the messenger etc. etc.

As far as I can see, SOS believe that if you weren’t born in Liverpool you have no right to support the club and are stopping true supporters going to games by taking a ticket. I was born 300 miles away and have supported the club for over 35 years but considered sub human in their eyes. I’m therefore inclined to share ed002’s view of them rather than ed001’s valid view.
