Hey Ed001. Any chance Ings could be on the bench? I know he's only just returned to training, just wondering.
Also, so happy for Suarez. I know he couldn't wait to move on, but he gave his all when wearing the shirt.


{Ed001's Note - they were hoping he would be fit to take at least some part in the game. I don't know, nor will I ask as the club a long time ago asked me not to give out team details prior to matches, whether that is still happening. I want the club to succeed first and foremost, so, as they said it was giving an advantage to the opposition, I am happy to steer clear of team sheets etc. Sorry, I know it is not ideal for the sites, but the club is more important to me.}

1.) 15 May 2016 10:12:13
Well done 001.

{Ed001's Note - it has to be done. The club are my first love after all!}

2.) 15 May 2016 10:21:50
Are team sheets/ news banned now? I hope so for the same reasons Ed01. The people it benefits most are the opposition.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I just have no involvement in them.}

3.) 15 May 2016 10:32:10
I hope your wife to be isn't reading, ed. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - she knows mate.}

4.) 15 May 2016 12:17:01
I'd say Ed most of us here aren't to bothered about team sheets. It's who's coming and going that we are more interested in.

{Ed001's Note - it does make a huge difference to traffic if you can post them up, so it only applies for those here now, rather than those we could attract.}

5.) 15 May 2016 13:13:00
Thanks for doing that ed, that's completely the right thing to do! Come on reds let's get top 5 and build for next year.



15 Jan 2015 00:02:54
A week ago someone mentioned aussie keeper Matt Ryan. I see a couple of papers are suggesting we're interested. Heard anything Eds?
From the little I've seen he looks a decent keeper with good distribution and is quite vocal. Pulled off a blinding save last week in their first group game of the Asian cup, ball looked destined for the top corner.


{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told there has been an enquiry from us, that has been leaked to try and bring others who are interested out of the woodwork.}

1.) 15 Jan 2015 07:48:00
Ed001 - a leak from Ryan's management or from Bruges?

{Ed001's Note - Bruges, they are looking for more money.}

2.) 15 Jan 2015 08:23:01
Seen him in a few games now. Not sure if he is the real thing YET, as he seems to loose his head (Like Grobelaar), but the kids got a big talent for sure

3.) Thanks Ed001. Presumed that would be the case, but just wanted to check.

4.) 15 Jan 2015 09:22:31
This bloke is 5ft11 just as well puttin Warwick Davis between the sticks

5.) 15 Jan 2015 17:21:20
Completely agree, far too short for the premier league. We are the worst in Europe when it comes to scouting and transfersz



13 Aug 2013 06:40:34
Eds, I assume the ESPN rumour is of their usual reliability, surely we wouldn't pay 35mil for Willian? {Ed002's Note - They will be running with a story that is from elsewhere. As I have said, I am not aware of any interest in Willian from Liverpool at this time.}


1.) In our dreams

2.) If you look at his goal return its far from good and there are better options out there for half the price being mentioned.

Iker Muniain
Erik Lamela

3.) 13 Aug 2013 10:27:31
I saw him playing in the CL last season and he was spectacular, however £35m is way too much. £20-23m would be fair, I'm sure he'd shine at Liverpool and partnering up with Coutinho wouldn't hurt. Adding Willian, a solid CB and LB and it just might persuade Suarez that we'll be a top 4 team this season. {Ed002's Note - A bid of just under €40M has already been rejected.}

4.) Was that €40M bid before or after the Anzhi situation developed? Thanks. {Ed002's Note - It was 10 days ago when Anzhi were already looking to start to restructure their wage budget. It is also irrelevant to what they are asking for, although as we get closer to the window closing they will possibly be accepting less. There is interest in Willian from elsewhere and a prospective deal might just include a player or two on loan for the 2014-2015 season - and a lower cash sale.}

5.) Was that 40m offer from Man City Ed? {Ed002's Note - It was less than €40M and it was from Manchester City. It seems they have since dropped their interest - at least for now - after it was rejected.}

6.) We are aiming too high, we are not a big club anymore. Nobody of any stature/class wants to play for LFC.

7.) 40 million for a striker whos scored 40 goals in 274 appearances hardly seems worth it mind you a majority of his goals came from the ukrainian league which people were already concerned about when we were interested in Micky and he scored 25 goals whilst Willian scored 2 in his league 1 in the domestic cup and 4 in europe I really don't think he'd be worth it.

8.) 13 Aug 2013 17:10:37
Ed02 do you think there is any possibility Liverpool go for him or is he out of our reach? {Ed002's Note - I can't say - but it would cost a great deal of money.}

9.) 13 Aug 2013 17:42:08
We already have Coutinho.

10.) The Times Tony Barrett who so far has been fairly on the ball, is saying we have moved for him now.

11.) 13 Aug 2013 22:58:52
Ben smith and tony barrett say we are interested

I mentioned once before that I cringe when John Aldridge speaks sometimes. This time he's declared that Liverpool need a world class striker. Wow, amazing John, never thought of that. It's a good job no other teams need world class strikers or we'd be stuffed.


1.) 02 Mar 2017 07:51:32
Love JA and met him a few times. Nicest bloke you'll meet he is passionate about lfc and he's not often wrong.

2.) 02 Mar 2017 09:24:14
Aldo is an absolute legend. he's a fan first pundit second. He talks absolute sense. leave him alone. Top top top bloke.

3.) 02 Mar 2017 09:43:13
Pundits are paid to have opinions. Sometimes they come up with something insightful, sometimes they say something really obvious to fill this week's column, don't get hung up on it, it's just part of the business.

4.) 02 Mar 2017 09:53:17
It's the banter page boys. Nothing personal against the man, heart in the right place and all that, just wonder why it gets media space when it's just so obvious.

5.) 02 Mar 2017 14:30:48
maybe Aldo has to repeat this new striker talk cos Klopp is not listening .

6.) 02 Mar 2017 16:42:11
Maybe he's trying to get himself a contract, probably wouldn't be as injury prone as some of the current crop.

7.) 02 Mar 2017 16:43:56
Tranmere legend aldo love the man.

8.) 02 Mar 2017 23:03:20
Last time I checked, scoring goals was not an issue for us so don't know what Aldo is talking about, really.



28 Feb 2017 06:45:13
Ah well, another game against a team in the bottom half, another loss. Top 4 is still possible and even when we were in our pomp early season, I said I'd still settle for top four and was often slated for not believing.

The really disappointing thing was our drive and ambition. Where was the fight?
Those with more knowledge of the coaching set up within the first team can hopefully tell me, why are we so woeful any time the ball is in the air? Be it a long punt forward or a cross, we lack leadership and decisiveness.

At least Sakho would throw himself at the ball. Their second goal was a lovely hit, but was the result of a high ball in the box that we faffed at. Their third came from a cross. On top of that, we can't cross for nuts and half the time our corners don't get past the first man.


1.) 28 Feb 2017 07:47:19
Champions who are in the bottom half. Need i remind you that you dint win the leagye by being a bad team.

When we play chelsea do you count them as a top team who had a bad srason or a dmall team who had a fluke season?

To clarify you don't win yhe prem by fluke, it just don't happen. You might fluke 10 games mayne even 15 but not 38 games. Whoever is champion is champion.

2.) 28 Feb 2017 08:03:00
Excuses supermane, more excuses for a bunch of players with a bad attitude and a manager that simply got it wrong again.

3.) 28 Feb 2017 09:23:20
Supermane, you're also picking out one game against a "lower" team. All our losses have been against teams that other "top" teams don't consistently lose against.

4.) 28 Feb 2017 13:26:05
I would agree with that Burkeyboy. A top 4 was my target for the season, not that this team would do anything in the Champions League but the extra revenue might come in handy and eventually if we can maintain a top 4 spot we might attract better players.

I read that after Klopps first 54 games verse Rodgers that he had the same points, scored less and conceded more, so not much to write home about. I must say that Klopp looks devoid of ideas other than ranting and raving on the touchline. Im not going to treat Klopp any different than any other manager, he needs to step up, he should not be given any more luxury of time than say Rodgers, why should he?

At the minute he is failing. Top 4 needs to be achieved at all costs imo. I appreciate that there will be others out there that will be happy to give Klopp all the time in the world, for me i want to see progress to give the fans belief that we might be going in the right direction.

5.) 28 feb 2017 13:14:13
sakho played well at the weekend. fat sam said man of the match.

we're probably paying a percentage of his wages for him to play well for another club, while we have to play a midfielder out of position at centre half. it doesn't make sense what's gone on.



14 Jan 2017 09:47:42
Tend to err on the side of caution, but feel really confident of a solid win, particularly if hendo and couts play. I'm going for a 3-1 win.




05 Jan 2017 01:55:37
Before Christmas I said I'd be happy if the 6 point gap between us and Chelsea didn't widen, given the City game. So, besides a sub par finishing display v Sunderland, no complaints here. Top 4 is still the priority for me this season.


1.) 05 Jan 2017 03:11:10
With you on that, Burky. CL football MUST be accomplished BUT cos Klopp focuses one one game at a time, we press forward and see what happens.

2.) 05 Jan 2017 06:19:34
No problem with healthy optimism, with you on that. I'm very happy to see solid improvement month by month and believe we have a great chance of success, this year or sometime soon.

3.) 05 Jan 2017 07:19:22
Anything below top 2 would be a failure considering
we play only one game a week and have a large squad unlike others. I am struggling with people who are happy to take up any where inside the 4 places in the league.
We are Liverpool FC and not Arsenal FC.

4.) 05 Jan 2017 08:00:20
It's called progress SWM. Don't know how a side that's not been in the top 4 for so long can be expecting to win a prize that they've not achieved in over 20 years. Getting back in to a top 4 position is an accomplishment and a realistic target, do that and build from that. At this stage of the season CL would have meant an additional 6 games, it's not an excuse to under perform.
Hope and optimism is fair enough, arrogance however completely not.

5.) 05 Jan 2017 08:31:14
Yes we are lfc not arsenal. The only difference between us an arsenal is that we actually literally have barely won anything in the last 10 years and also have been regularly irrelevant in europe. So yebthank goodness we're not arsenal.

6.) 05 Jan 2017 08:39:28
In Istanbul

Leicester city mate. It's called belief and nothing else. If you truly believe in you and what you could achiever then no one stops you achieving it.

7.) 05 Jan 2017 08:41:20

Arsenal have won nothing in last ten years other than two FA cups. Their CL campaign is not really good mate. They make up numbers and get eliminated by January every year. We have seen it from past a decade.

8.) 05 Jan 2017 09:20:46
Mate I'm full of belief, but we are not Leicester and an irrelevant comparison. There's 6 really good capable sides in that league, all of which will have the same ambitions. Of the top 6 I would possibly suggest that Liverpool should have the lowest level of expectation.
I'm just glad to see Anfield rocking again, and not being fearful of traveling going to a game to lose, the expectation is to win. Our performances this season have been fantastic which shows in the level of disapointment when we do anything but win.
One game at a time sir, all of which unfortunately we won't all win.

9.) 05 Jan 2017 10:55:19
It's all about progression surely. we are LFC and we all want to be winning titles but let's face it we have exceeded expectations so far this season. every year I want us to win the league but secretly would have settled for top 4.this year I think we have a realistic chance of winning the league but if we don't top 4 is a must. to me it's about building consistency and my hope is that we are in the position we are in now for many years to come. let us create a dynasty like we did in previous years. let every year we be challenging on all fronts. when the top players at home and abroad want to leave their club, let it be Liverpool they want to join. we have a better stadium and a great manager, let this be our time. YNWA.

10.) 05 Jan 2017 11:25:17
I agree with harry, but not sure the squad believes it yet. If we are a few points off top or heaven forbid leading coming into may, top 4 will not be good enough for me.

11.) 05 Jan 2017 12:28:39

The progression is always there if you win the title or end up just inside top4. I am not talking about it all. We set our targets so low that anything seems Brilliant. We are half way through the season sitting in 2nd place and if you are happy to finish on 4th, Then I have nothing to say mate.

I am sure the msg from the owners are clear, They have more ambitions than some of our own fans. At least they want us to win the title every year.

12.) 05 Jan 2017 14:54:13
Harry, getting to the CL which was the objective when the season started, is not setting targets low. Media and many on here, had us finishing 6th and called finishing 5th a success. CL footie was also the target in 13/ 14 up until Feb of `14 when we found ourselves in a title race. After that season cos our title challenge was built on sand, we crumbled monumentally.

Therefore as of today, we are on track to get into the CL and that is progress already from last season, where we made a European final (only PL team to do that since Chelsea in 2012) just 8 months after taking charge of a team many thought were crap. We may have lost to Seville and that hurts BUT Klopp was more hurt and even said that the loss was fuel for his fire for this season.

We all wanna win the PL for sure BUT many of us are dreaming with our eyes open as in, considering reality and managing expectations. We are making progress rapidly and are ahead of schedule already cos even you nor I, didn`t think we`d be second by Jan so that has to be admitted. This doesn`t make us less ambitious or make us less passionate fans than others (been a fan for 30 plus years) and the fact that some of us are seen as less ambitious cos we are tempered in my expectations is unfair and wrong. That attitude and belittling of others needs to change.

13.) 05 Jan 2017 17:07:43
Sweet chin, I never said I'm happy with 4th. im saying of course I want us to win the league but u can only judge us since klopps reign. since he has been here we are playing much better football and much more consistently. we are only half way through the season and so far I am more than happy.

14.) 06 Jan 2017 08:36:50
More than we've achieved. not to say it is more than we'll become but if you're not winning things the least you expect is to be competitive. We have barely won anything and also barely been consistently competitive over that span!



24 Dec 2016 23:30:00
Just to break the flow of Christmas well wishes. I think if we can still be 6 points behind Chelsea come the end of the Christmas madness, then that would represent a pretty decent spell. Anything better given the respective fixtures would be great.


1.) 25 Dec 2016 16:02:14
Merry Christmas Burkey.

The morning you say? Only one flight leaving Kiev tomorrow and that's at 2.10pm. Unless he's taking an 8 hr jouney via Moscow, then he can leave at 6am. Hope he's an early riser.

Can has been much better these past couple of games. I thought Winaldum was the stand out though. Early season I thought he was just doing enough to get a start, but he has grown into a certain starter for me. He's strong on the ball, reads an intercept well, has really good vision for a pass (the lifted ball to Firmino was class), and chips in with important goals, a bit like Garcia used to.
If only Firmino converted at the rate he did earlier in the season and we'd have come away with 3 points. Lallana must be feeling awful.

Thanks Ed002. I'm a cynic by nature and have wondered in the past just how "in the know" some of the Ed's are. Over the past few years you have occasionally gone into depth to explain the behind the scenes machinations of various aspects of the footballing world and have proven quite clearly your qualifications for educating idiots like me. Ta :)
