Hi ed
To start I don't buy into all of this spurs are steeling our targets nonsense but do you think spurs might come in for sako as they are looking for a left back and could probably do with another center back hope we can get a deal sorted as would be gutted if we miss out on him.
Cheers. {Ed002's Note - Sakho is a centre back who can play left back. Clubs will not look to buy players for a primary role which is not natural and their interest in a left back rests elsewhere.}

Hi edds

I know chelsea were in for Gerrard a few years back I'm just wondering if any other clubs have been in for him over the years?
Cheers {Ed002's Note - Check with Ed001 tomorrow when he is about. He would eb much better placed than I to answer.}


1.) Apparently Mourinho wanted him at pretty much every club he managed. so I presume Madrid wanted him for a while.

2.) 08 Jul 2013 22:45:22
I think RM wanted him around the same time they got Alonso?

3.) Madrid enquired in three consecutive summers; starting in 2008. In 09 they were seriously interested and apparently were willing to pay whatever we asked, but he knocked them back. {Ed001's Note - he has had a few offers, the only one he has come close to taking was the Chelsea one in 2005. That seems to have been a watershed moment for him, when he made the decision to stay as long as we want him. Though you never know what the future will hold.}

4.) Inter Milan once bid 35million I'm sure?

5.) Gerrard is quoted as saying that he, Rodgers, and FSG wanted to extend his current contract and it would get done. He looks to have worked hard in the off season during his rehab and looks to be in some seriously good shape at the moment. I think he is 100% focused on being here and pushing LFC as far as he can before retiring. Just one mans opinion based on observation and player quotes.


6.) Ed 001. Was there big bids ever made for Liverpool players in the past that got knocked back? Have Liverpool made any big bids over the years which got turned down?

Thanks. {Ed001's Note - yes, of course.}

7.) Real Madrid and Manchester United

8.) Gerrard is probally one of the last one club players left in the prem, and there probally won't be to many more now its all money

Hi ed
I know your probably tired of being asked about suarez but if we receive an offer of 40mill do Liverpool have to except the offer or just let him talk to them?
Thanks {Ed002's Note - I don't know.}


1.) Neither, Suarez does not have a £40m release clause. Liverpool will accept an offer and/or let Suarez talk to the bidding club when Liverpool decide it is the best option, there is no set price to activate this.

Hi ED001.

I was wondering who would you like to see come in as assistant manager if one does come in?


{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}

1.) 04 May 2018 06:22:12
The list could be endless. Every time I turn the tv or radio on there are so called experts telling the world how to manage clubs and where managers and players are going wrong. Actually thinking about it there's millions of so called experts on social media as well. The interview process could be a long one 😂.

3.) 04 May 2018 09:13:39
Paul Lambert. So that Klopp can teach him a thing or two about what football coaching actually is.

4.) 04 May 2018 09:22:57
I'd want Harry from the site or edd 1 I think both could give klopp some insite on how to win and not draw a match.

5.) 04 May 2018 09:35:07
Could Pepijin Lijinders return? How is he getting on in the Netherlands? Be great to get him back.

6.) 04 May 2018 10:17:24
I would suggest bringing back Steve Clarke, if it's feasible. He did a good job under KD with our defense (even Skrtel looked a world beater under him), and that's an area that still needs to improve. Seems to be a quiet unassuming man. Has had his shot at being a manager; didn't work out. So he knows his limits now and would probably accept being a #2 for the long run, and not run off somewhere in the middle of the season.

{Ed001's Note - the Steve Clarke that is currently managing Kilmarnock in the SPFL?}

7.) 04 May 2018 17:39:45
I have no idea where he is or what he is doing (workwise) now, Ed001. I just remember that when he was with LFC, under KD, we had a solid defense (with average defenders like Skrtel and Sakho - Carragher aside) ) and our main concern that year was constantly hitting the woodwork and balls not going into the nets. Thought it might be an option worth considering.

{Ed001's Note - he is busy making Mourinho look like an all out attacking manager with Killie mate, he is not going to be an assistant any time soon.}



26 Aug 2015 22:15:21
Firstly the pod cast was great and Benny that joke was so bad it actually made me laugh!
Ed001 are our lack of goals so far a worry to you?


{Ed001's Note - yes, of course, but I am hoping that the coaching staff also sees it and will be working on rectifying it. Certainly there seemed a lot more fluidity going forward against Arsenal.

Oh and please don't encourage him to tell jokes, he spends ages cracking jokes on skype while we are running tests or preparing, he can't tell a joke to save his life. Hence him doing that as a dare.}

1.) 27 Aug 2015 17:21:28
Ed, I haven't managed to listen to the podcast yet so sorry if this is mentioned, but do you think the improved fluidity going forward was a result of a better balanced team in the middle of the park? 2uth lucas being in the team this give can and milner a licence to go forward and imo having Hendo and milner in the same team means you can't get the best out of both of them. Interested to get your thoughts on this

{Ed001's Note - yes, I think it was a major part of it.}

2.) 27 Aug 2015 20:28:52
Thanks for the reply mate, loving the podcasts btw



16 Aug 2015 17:41:52
Really enjoyed the podcast thanks to both of you for doing it. Looking forward to the next one

Ed002 I have been reading some of your posts about some English clubs being sold around 2017 and you said "The worst case scenario would be institutional ownership" I was wondering why is that


{Ed002's Note - 2017 will see a significant boost in value of Premier League clubs as the first of the new TV monies come through. Some owners will look to sell at this time to reap rewards from their investments. Several clubs will be valued at a level where it will be difficult to find individual buyers so you will see more investment groups (such as FSG) becoming involved. In some case institutional owners (e.g. Far Easter insurance companies, Chinese new money banks etc.) will be looking to investing in the sport in England because the potential returns are high. Whilst FSG keep throwing good money after bad at Liverpool there will come a time that if significant success on field is not happening then they will look to move on. If they were to sell, say, to a Chinese bank then the new owners interest will be in obtaining a return for their investors - and they will look to that return without necessarily continuing to invest in the club.}

1.) 27 Jun 2015 17:57:44
They only have themselves ro blame by appointing and then keeping a very poor manager in role despite it being very evident he is dragging the club down

2.) 27 Jun 2015 20:48:49
English football at the level we're still at has turned into a big willy contest between foreign investors and has completely lost it's soul. It's going to get far, far worse over the coming two years or so. We may as well start publishing the League Tables in the Financial Times.

3.) 27 Jun 2015 23:31:08
700m profit for shuffling the squad and selling our best players. And adding a fewposh seats to a stand. Not bad work if you can get it. I'm being a bit disingenuous. They did do the Dunkin' Donuts deal.



05 Jun 2015 18:04:34
Ed001 if your about are FSG trying to make Rodgers quit by getting rid of his backroom staff?


{Ed001's Note - no they are just making changes they deem necessary.}

1.) 05 Jun 2015 18:17:51
oh ok! do you think Rodgers will pick their replacments or will they be assigned to him

{Ed001's Note - he picked Pascoe mate, so that should answer that question for you.}

2.) 05 Jun 2015 18:31:17
Have to say as someone who isn't the biggest Rodgers fan, if FSG are sacking his coaching staff without his consent and don't eventually sack him as well, I fail to see how this is remotely a good idea. Back him or sack him- this all seems very half baked.

Noski wind your neck in lad. No need to bite their heads off. If you disagree that's fine but chill out man. People are allowed to have different opinions to you.

Ed002 already has Shayan. In the post below this one. His understanding is that Liverpool have now made contact with Lyon.

Bit of an over reaction there Dexter. Think about it. If a Brazilian could get the same money in Brazil as he would in England where do you think he would choose to play?
