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

Just wanna show a bit of man love for Ed025. A blue nose he may be, but I love his witty banter and keenness to mix it up a bit. Reminds me a lot of my old man, a blue, but was happy to take me to Anfield as a young lad to see my beloved reds. He also came with me to the 86 and 89 FA cup finals. I'll never forget those train journeys with red and blue all mixed in, singing along. Merseyside, Merseyside, Merseyside.
Footy the way it used to be :)


{Ed001's Note - agreed, he is a good bloke Ed025, though probably old enough to be your grandad, rather than dad.}



17 Apr 2017 07:54:34
Top 4 is all I've hoped for all season, as slated for several times. Not far away now. Utd play 5 of their last seven away inc city arsenal and spurs. If we are as solid defensively in the remaining games as we have been over the last 2, then things look good. Anyone think arsenal can get on a run?


{Ed025's Note - arsenal are no threat at all burkey..

1.) 17 Apr 2017 08:36:07
And I thought Chelsea might pose them a problem, Arsenal will be easy for them. We need to win all our remaining games to hold of Utd I reckon.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 08:39:18
Agree johnny, every dropped point is a blow.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 10:15:48
Any team playing arsenal will fancy their chances.

4.) 17 Apr 2017 13:58:14
Even Boro tonight.



28 Mar 2017 10:24:04
Big "how you doin? " to all Queensland reds. Just come through the worst of tropical cyclone Debbie. Severe category 4, winds up to 260 kph, mental. Just glad the power will be back on for Everton game :)


1.) 28 Mar 2017 12:33:17
Don't envy you burkey. Was watching on the news today as I'm in NSW. Pretty nasty, hopefully you're through the worst of it.

2.) 28 Mar 2017 12:46:51
Makes a change from childhood days back in Liverpool that's for sure.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 14:13:33
How did u go, caught it on tv this arvo. Looks pretty fierce. Im in springfield lakes. 20 mins from brisbane. Dry as a bone here.

Hope the powers back on for you pal.

4.) 28 Mar 2017 22:49:34
We were out of the worst of it Humancenterpide, unlike a few mates around Bowen. Heading back to Hervey Bay soon where we'll just get the rain. Did you see the clip on channel 7 showing the guy kitesurfing at Bowen the day before it hit? That was me :)



02 Mar 2017 03:24:42
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.

Really Ed025? I thought once Everton touched you, you needed de-licing?

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.

Ed025 showing you have your head screwed on again. Have to agree re the back 5, though I'm not sure about Milner past this season. I also agree about a goalscorer, but am somewhat optimistic that Ings can do a job if he gets to fitness. Ah, what I wouldn't give for Suarez to come back : (.


{Ed025's Note - suarez was excellent burkey and almost single handedly won you the league, ings is certainly a grafter mate but i think you may need a bit more quality than him if you are to challenge for top honours..

Ed025, whenever you do this page you never hold back :) Not many stupid, sarcastic put downs, but lots of firey banter and honest opinions, like things used to be, cheers!


{Ed025's Note - its how i grew up burkey with friendly banter between the teams but never giving an inch :), its still the same with my generation mate a lot of my friends are reds and some blues and we discuss games and players all the time but it has never turned nasty, some of my greatest memories are travelling to wembley with all supporters on the same trains and singing in pubs together even though we lost...its a pity its not like that now mate..

Didnt Owen helicopter it to Newcastle daily? Wasn't exactly embraced by the fans. Then again, he was mainly injured and when on the field looked like he wanted to be injured.

Lol wiwar, but with those gnashers I reckon he could better Suarez if he'd just apply himself.
