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

Ed001 any news on Mane's early return from international duty? Something about recurrent hamstring?


{Ed001's Note - not yet no, just that they sent him back as an old injury flared up.}



10 Oct 2017 11:09:37
Phew. Had organised a weekend on Fraser Island here in Queensland, 4 wheel driving with the wife. Didn't realise the Utd game was on. Well, the footballing gods have smiled on me and there are severe storms forecast 😀
I know our form has been patchy, and FaceTimed my older brother in Fazakerley who is already sweating on the game. I'm pretty optimistic, think we'll cruise to 3 points actually.


1.) 10 Oct 2017 12:24:37
i'd name fish after you in the reef if we do burkeyboy. :)



09 Oct 2017 21:05:31
I know I've whinged a few times about Phil Thompson (sure he's a lovely bloke), but the only reason his comments are reported are cos' he's an ex player. If I stated the bleeding obvious time after time nobody would care. This time, we need a top draw striker and if Aubameyang is available he should top the list, according to Phil. Why not state we also need a top keeper, and if DeGea becomes available, he should top the list? Maybe I'm just getting cranky as I get older.


{Ed025's Note - you are burkey mate..

1.) 09 Oct 2017 21:57:57
Ex players moaning just for the sake of it don not help the situation.

2.) 09 Oct 2017 22:46:56
Are you the original Bingo from the banana splits?
He was red and chatted incoherent drivel as well.
Phil Thompson knows more about our club than most why you think you are informed enough to slate him is beyond me. Thommo is born and bred and worked with all our top managers, including Houllier, you muppet he's not just any old ex-player.
Beam me up.

3.) 10 Oct 2017 00:18:58
Fooking hell Burkey Aubuy never De Gea never ever ever have you been on the pop pal 😁.

4.) 10 Oct 2017 00:36:43
Maybe actually read my post Reusch.

5.) 10 Oct 2017 08:20:21
Yawn, Sono. He still moans for no reason regardless of his stature at the club, just like Aldo, Carra and some of the rest. You are aware that two things could be right at the same time, right or did they not teach you that in muppet school?

6.) 10 Oct 2017 08:35:43
Met him at a fan event a few years ago. Lovely guy. Even funnier off camera and more than happy to discuss the god debacle. He's very entertaining on sky with the boys but like any pundit who works for that company- take most of what he says with a grain of salt.

7.) 10 Oct 2017 10:23:57
My apologies Burkeyboy.

8.) 10 Oct 2017 11:00:12
No worries Reusch.

9.) 10 Oct 2017 13:44:18
When the team is underperforming what do you guys expect the pundits to say? Of course they are going to give their opinions because they are asked. It's their job.

{Ed025's Note - fair comment superred..

10.) 10 Oct 2017 16:15:25
Cheers ed.

11.) 11 Oct 2017 07:47:19
Bingo, when you can list that many legends all unhappy with the performances then maybe you need to reflect whether it's you who are the odd one out? Remember that sequence in Sesame Street, one of these kids is doing his own thing?
Maybe you haven't completed your muppet history course yet, try researching your family tree 😝.

12.) 11 Oct 2017 23:21:12
Superred, that is not my issue with them. My issue is that some of them just keep moaning about the bleeding obvious which IMO, adds nothing new to the debate while some of them go on with conspiracy theories and start parroting other people's quotes and general talking points which may have no basis in reality. That is my issue BUT I know they are paid to do that, as well.



21 Sep 2017 23:04:03
Haven't posted for a few weeks. Mainly just been absorbing all the hysteria and vowing not to get involved. I failed.
Just a few games ago we battered a poor Arsenal. With 10 men City gave us a lesson, fair enough, we won't be the only team this year they do that to. If we'd have converted just a couple of our plethora of chances in the other games all would be ok. No, not the defence, granted, but on the whole we'd be moving in the rightish direction.
Yes, we need a defensive coach, a settled back line and Klopp needs to stick with a keeper and let it roll. But all the moaning and whinging is plane embarrassing people.
Shanks used to say that it's not worth looking at the league table until Christmas. I know times have changed but there's still wisdom in the words.
A few times last season, even pre-Christmas when we were "nailed on" for the title, I said I'd be happy with 4th and a gradual improvement in our form with a hope of being real contenders within a few years. I still hold that same view. I'm old enough to have lived through the hey day of 70's and 80's Liverpool so I know what it is to wait for a league title. Patience, planning and a bit of luck at times is what's needed, not keyboard fans throwing the manager and team under a bus every time we have a bad run, get a grip.


1.) 22 Sep 2017 07:50:47
Spot on, Burkey. Only an irrational person wuld have thought that we would win the PL last season with all the issues this team had personnel-wise, last season BUT whenever you say that, they will tell you that you lack ambition.

2.) 22 Sep 2017 08:16:57
Good post Burkeyboy.
Just wondering, who said or where did you see people saying we were "nailed on" for the title?
I know you didn't say it yourself, Twitter or whatever I assume?
It's one of the main reasons why we seem to fail every season - unrealistic expectations from many "fans/ experts".
We are never nailed on for anything.

3.) 22 Sep 2017 08:23:40
I agree in full.

4.) 22 Sep 2017 12:01:38
Hey olrish. There were plenty on here who slammèd me for not believing and who felt it was ours to lose.



30 Aug 2017 22:16:52
Not unhappy with Ox and the possibility of Lemar. But, is this the area of the pitch most fans think we need strengthening the most? If a centre back doesn't happen, regardless of who else comes in, can't help but view this window as a lost opportunity to attempt to solve our achilles heel.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 22:58:56
Get real. The back 4 does nor equal defence . We have hit e best squad in years.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 23:01:52
Fully agree burkeyboy cb should have been a priority for us no one coming in to challenge a very poor lovern and klavan everyone can see were we are week except mr klopp and his coaches really disappointed we haven't addressed that area and before anyone starts again with the vvd comments behave it wasn't ever happening we have made a massive era not bringing anyone in at centre back.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 23:06:06
Perhaps you have forgotten about Klavan. Worst case scenario we use Lucas as back up. He is still with the club right?

4.) 31 Aug 2017 00:02:02
You're kidding there, coop, surely?

5.) 31 Aug 2017 00:03:26
I'll put a shift in at CB if the club needs me - I'll play for free, too!

6.) 31 Aug 2017 00:14:50
But we have targeted a CB. Perhaps the reason we haven't targeted a different one is because the first choice one is happening? Everyone seems to think they know better than the guys who are actually dealing with the transfers when you actually know nothing at all. Just Relax it's all in hand and if by some last minute hitch we don't sign a CB we have kept 7 clean sheets in our last 8 premier league games. That's not bad going for a team that can't defend.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 01:06:42
Pieman, you serious? Last time I checked, the back four made up a sizeable portion of the defence. Don't go on about a specialty defensive mid, Klopp doesn't really play that system.
I am optimistic about the season ahead and look forward to some great footy. I can, however, see a series of games where teams sit back and soak up pressure with a view to hitting our defence on the break. Maybe with the strengthening of the front half of the pitch we'll break teams down more and this will be less of an issue, but it's pretty much what cost us a run at the title after Christmas.
Question, at this stage of the window who would you rather bring in, Lemar or VVD?

8.) 31 Aug 2017 01:02:02
Where have you been coop?

9.) 31 Aug 2017 01:34:52
We could bring in Messi but if we don't improve the CBs we are in trouble, set pieces will bear is again.

Not exactly on the same level as Leicester winning the league, but Burnley finishing top 4 would be something.

Jayden, we're not quick to hang Mane out to dry, but Harry just suggested Lovren should retire. I'd rather 1 Mane than 5 Lovren's, but retire? I just hope Mane looks at his choice and decides to never do that again. Could you see Bobby doing that?

11 Dec 2017 03:59:01
If we use that same logic Harry, and ask a defender to retire from football when a young striker tempts him into an error, then should we ask Mane to retire from football for not being able/ choosing to hand a sitter to a teammate? Both situations end up in a goal and both hugely effect the outcome of the game. Both situations, it could be argued, cost us 2 points.

I'm no huge fan of Hendo, but I fail to see how this puts any debate to bed? Every time he got the ball he had the entire everton team in front of him. He sprayed it around, kept it neat, tried to open things up. Yes his shooting's terrible lately but I'm not so sure we have anyone who would have done a lot more than him in this game. I'm not saying he had a good game, but would Can or Wini have done a lot more?
If Mane squares that ball then we go in 2 up and they have to come out and chase the game. Being just a goal down allows them to sit back and wait for the 1 chance they needed. 2 up and they have to come out and it could have been 4 and we wouldn't have to put up with all the whingers.
