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

TAA, finally someone who can deliver a ball that beats the first man.




04 Aug 2017 22:31:55
Ah bloody lallana injury. And with the usual studge situation, are we a tad thin in the front half? I'd like to see us not loan out Kent and not panic buy.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 23:38:43
I am with you on Kent staying, he deserves his chance, as with the injury, its the same crew, Sturridge, Lovren and Lalana, and before the season even starts .

2.) 05 Aug 2017 02:28:11
Agree about keeping Kent but disagree about being thin up front. Firmino can easily play the role Lallana or Coutinho plays in midfield and we have Sturridge, Origi, Solanke and Ings waiting for a chance to play striker.



28 Jul 2017 12:59:56
It's a funny old game, as 'arry would say. Jermaine pennant has signed with Billeceray, a non league team. Was it 2007 CL final where he actually had a decent game and was being eyed by real or Barca? Good on im I guess, better than sitting at home posting crap on some website 😊.


1.) 28 Jul 2017 13:17:16
Jimmy Greaves came out with that saying on the, what was, Saint and Greaves football show. Showing my age?

2.) 28 Jul 2017 13:25:57
I remember him being out of a match against Arsenal and I was gutted. For a very small period of time, he was a very good player.
Ed01, what happens to players like O'hara, Pennant and Konchesky? Have the legs all gone that much to drop down so low?

{Ed001's Note - it is lifestyle, all the partying and living it up takes a toll on fitness and also affects things like timing.}

3.) 28 Jul 2017 13:48:25
That was a great show! What better way to spend a Saturday lunchtime, then world of sport afterwards! Good times.

4.) 28 Jul 2017 15:24:55
Was it JP who forgot he had left his car in Spain?

5.) 28 Jul 2017 16:53:10
The story as far as I remember was he left it in England when moving to Spain.

Not only a car a Porsche with a personalised number plate. When he was called he denied it was his car then said he forgot he had it.

Probably baloney but a good story.

Wasnt It was also JP who said he was Ashley Cole when caught drink driving 😂😂.

6.) 28 Jul 2017 17:21:33
The 2007 Champions League final was vintage Pennant. He spent the entire first half making Jankulovski look like a Sunday League defender, but then put in precisely zero good crosses.



14 Jul 2017 07:24:29
Ok, so we've only signed Salah and Solanke. Lots of posters freaking out about lack of signings so far. So what? Am I the only one who thinks that we actually have a decent first 11 with a bit of quality to support? If you judged our 16-17 season pre January, you'd have thought we were shoe ins to lift the trophy. I repeatedly said I would be happy with top 4. We got that and have added a couple, with no real reason to think we won't add a couple more. It's mid July. Let's say we add a couple more, hopefully starters and not just potential. Is this the end of the world? Correct me if I'm wrong but there is no ACN to take away Mane and Salah. Me thinks we should just take a breadth.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 08:41:39
It's more the way the club is going about things.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 09:07:47
A decent first 11, yes. But with the CL and 2 cup competitions, I for one would be happier if we sign another 2 or 3 players.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 09:30:50
Agreed Burkey.

14 days in, still have another 46 days left?, let's see what happens. a lot of people like to get dramatic about not signing more then 2 players in 14 days, lol. Let the club get on with their business and we shall just wait and see. It's not over, till it's over.

{Ed025's Note - your right teabag...adele is only just warming up her vocal chords mate.. :)



11 Jul 2017 09:17:56
Ed025 mate, I'm cut and pasting so many of your replies lately. Hope to be able to dig them out as the season goes on and have a bit of a laugh :)


{Ed025's Note - i dont think i have made any outlandish predictions burkey, all i have said is that we are a better side by far than liverpool and that we are going to win the league easily mate.. :)

1.) 11 Jul 2017 09:50:02
Had to laugh at that one ed25 😂😂 quality mate.

{Ed025's Note - i start every season like this irish, then when we lose a few i shout at the telly and want everyone sold and go around telling everyone how crap we are and how we will probably get relegated. im just as fickle as everyone else mate.. :)

2.) 11 Jul 2017 10:02:48
lol ed25 your class mate.

3.) 11 Jul 2017 10:54:15
025, you sound like a Liverpool fan to me!

{Ed025's Note - i have never been so insulted in my life MK.. :)

4.) 11 Jul 2017 10:54:44
I'm sure I sat behind you at goodison once ed025. I was in my sister's seat watching the derby, we won 3-1, and some old guy in front spent 90 minutes whinging and moaning and carrying on. It was brilliant!

{Ed025's Note - that could well have been me burkey..did he look like george clooney and have a load of young dolly birds swooning all over him mate?.. :)

5.) 11 Jul 2017 11:17:37
It was goodison mate, granny a gram birds are more likely.

{Ed025's Note - hey..we have tome top tottey at the school of science burkey, but now we have signed wayne im sure the blue rinse brigade will be looking to entice our new talisman mate.. :)

6.) 11 Jul 2017 11:25:06
I'm hoping you get Benteke now xD That would make you shout at the telly.

{Ed025's Note - dont even get me started on that one lazy man..

Agree hailstones, I was hoping he'd get some first team minutes this season.

Not a bad idea though Redsteve222. If we had an in-house hairdresser, imagine the style of player we could attract?

I thought the next AFCON was in 2019?


{Ed007's Note - I know it's every 2 years between the WC and Euros so that works out for me.

He's too slow, often poor work ethic with occasional motd moment.

Agree on individual defenders, but surely it's the way they are set up also? On free kicks the defensive line seems quite high. They should have scored with a free header toward the end but put it over the bar. The zonal set up on corners is also hard to understand. Not the actual principle of zonal but who zones where. Watford's first came from Lovren not going with the man but also the closest player to the header was firmino, bang in the middle of the 6 yard box. Even if they should be attacking the ball in their zone, Firmino should be around the box picking up scraps not smack bang n the danger zone?


{Ed001's Note - but you have to ask, is that the set up or the players not setting up as they should? I do agree on last night the free kicks, but that was a deliberate ploy. Not one I would have used, but it seemed to work as they did not score from a free kick.}

What's the point in contracts then? If a player wants to leave and can whenever they want, why sign a contract?


{Ed002's Note - No they can't.}

It's a tough one. A judiciary panel could review all major decisions and retrospectively ban a player. This won't reverse the decision made at the time, but surely if a player gets pinged a couple of times and banned, it's got to have an impact on their future behavior? Or is this just wishful thinking?

If Ryan Kent was currently playing in Europe and there were rumours of us scouting him, we'd all be watching clips on youtube and screaming for the club to sign him.
