VVD has left Southampton in a blacked out car?!


1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:05:17
He's off mine for a cuppa.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 13:05:17

3.) 31 Aug 2017 13:08:01
How could you see him to know?

4.) 31 Aug 2017 13:08:36
Not this again 😂.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 13:08:55
How could you tell?

6.) 31 Aug 2017 13:09:06
Had to be blacked out didn't it!

7.) 31 Aug 2017 13:09:50
Holy crap!
You mean he's not walking?!

8.) 31 Aug 2017 13:11:17
Isn't blacking out now classed as racist?

9.) 31 Aug 2017 13:12:45
On route to the blacked out Babbelcopter. someone alert Slysports and air traffic control, we got ourselves a convoy!

10.) 31 Aug 2017 13:13:07
Ok guys everyone on the lookout for a blacked out car heading to Spire hospital or towards a non typical plane.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 13:13:27
Maybe training has finished and he's off home.

12.) 31 Aug 2017 13:13:45
He told me via text lol.

13.) 31 Aug 2017 13:14:55
Was peter odemwingie driving?

{Ed001's Note - are they heading to the airport to keep Mahrez company while he waits for the Babelcopter?}

14.) 31 Aug 2017 13:17:22
Dentist appointment 😂😂.

15.) 31 Aug 2017 13:20:58
He always leaves in a blacked out car, he has a black Mercedez G Wagon with blacked out windows.

16.) 31 Aug 2017 13:24:10
Right. I'm off to JLA. He should be landing about now 😂.

17.) 31 Aug 2017 13:26:46
It was his own car nd he was finished training #fakenews.

18.) 31 Aug 2017 13:26:55
How do you know it's VVD if it's blacked out? We could of put in a cheeky bid for Gardos.

19.) 31 Aug 2017 13:33:26
There is a video of it on Sky, I reckon.

20.) 31 Aug 2017 13:48:54
Anyone who hashtags fake news jump of a bridge please cheers.

21.) 31 Aug 2017 13:58:48
Fake Taxi?

22.) 31 Aug 2017 15:13:20
He has to get in the car - maybe that's how they know he is in a blackened out car!

Cheeky question for the Ed’s if I may. Who is the most recent player we’ve enquired about to your knowledge? We seem to be awfully quiet and with the rest of our competitiors all in the market for new additions I worry about our top 4 chances with no coutinho. I don’t understand how we can allow him to leave without having an instant replacement lined up?! If either Salah/ Mane/ firmino gets injured the outcome will be bleak I fear.

Thanks in advance.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 13:08:35
Chris, chill out. We will be fine, IMO. Just trust in Klopp and keep believing in the team cos like it or not, had we won vs Swansea, it would not have sealed top 4 either way so nothing has changed. We will be fine and if we don't sign someone, it simply means that there was no one out there that Klopp feels is worth it. If you trusted in the manager b4 Swansea then you should trust him now. If you allow one loss in 19 to scare you then you will remain forever scared. I know I'm not.

2.) 26 Jan 2018 13:14:43
We drew nine games with coutinho in the team. This myth that he was an expert in breaking teams down is false. He is a great player and will be missed but i do think he has been something of a luxury player these past few months - good on the eye but not critically important to our team. The problems we had before coutinho left are the same ones we have now he is gone. Keita is coming in but our midfield still needs serious work, and we need to work out what the places of gomez, woodburn and arnold are before we can make any more transfers. Our competitors are slowly unravelling bit by bit, that is why they are making so many panic buys. We will be alright, just trust Klopp for now.

3.) 26 Jan 2018 13:37:30
I do trust klopp 100% but unfortunately he can’t control the injuries we may get! I know that’s outside of everyone’s control however the way you combat it is with strength in depth. Now when you look at our bench against Swansea we didn’t have a player that would come on and give you confidence that they’ll change the game for us. Sure we had attackers that we could bring on but let’s face it none of them have the pedigree of our current front three yet. and I say yet because I think solanke can make something of himself at Liverpool.
It’s a big ask to replace coutinho with a like for like but I’d just feel a little bit more comfortable if we could bring in another creative mid/ forward. especially if we are allowing Sturridge to leave as well.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 13:52:09
Exactly, you can’t control injuries. We could pay 90 mil for lemar and he could be out for 3 months. It happened with dembele 2 games in after Barcelona paid 110 mil for him! If anything we have more players back from injury: Ings, Lallana, Henderson and Moreno are all effectively back but just need to get up to match fitness.

5.) 26 Jan 2018 15:57:10
Lallana is injured again lol.

6.) 26 Jan 2018 16:07:23
If we buy no one from here I would say we have weakened this window.

In my opinion that is not good from everyone involved to let this happen mid season or any transfer window.

Very very disappointing. They must have known the first sale of big player under Klopp was a pivotal moment and they 've done it mid season with everything to play for with no quality replacement lined up.

Sugar coat it if you want. Convince yourself the club did the right thing if you want.

This is a complete and utter bottle job. Perhaps not FSG but maybe somewhat. Maybe klopp but maybe only somewhat again. Certainly Edwards. Not impressed with him so far. Everybody seems to come a window or 2 late with him.

{Ed002's Note - Would you be happy with knee-jerk buying of unwanted players or rater wait for the desired targets?}

7.) 26 Jan 2018 16:27:08
We want the desired targets and if you say we will likely get some of our desired targets in the summer. Then that is fine by me.

8.) 26 Jan 2018 16:30:27
Desired target definitely but i would have kept an unhappy Coutinho until we had a desired target lined up.

The quality of the squad has weakened. It's simply not a good window for us.

9.) 26 Jan 2018 16:35:05
I'd love to know exactly happened between the club and Coutinho in private conversations to force the club's hand or if it was simply an asking price being met.

Klopp suggested they tried everything, Coutinho said Lfc did try very hard to keep him, but ultimately the move went through and it was the correct decision all round.

I'm starting a petition now for us to buy in this window: Fekir, Alison Becker, Lemar, Lamal, Lamar, Lenny Henry (John's big brother) and also we should buy a Euro Millions lottery ticket. It's payday and I fancy a spending splurge and Ed 2's red coma thingy.

Good day to you all! :)

10.) 26 Jan 2018 16:37:13
Desired targets will be nigh on impossible without champs league. That's all I care about now. Putting together a squad that can win something. This window puts everything at risk.

Time will tell I suppose.

11.) 26 Jan 2018 16:49:14
Olirish, Klopp has told us what happened with Cou and so have the Ed's since last summer. Whether you believe them or not is your choice.

12.) 26 Jan 2018 16:51:57
Last thought on the matter, for months we had to know this was a strong possibility. Months of planning of targets and talks and we Still get caught with our pants down.

13.) 26 Jan 2018 16:52:15
Davey, why would you wanna keep Cou who would cause trouble in the dressing room, refuse to play and who threatened to sit out the rest of the season if we don't let him go? And how would you do that and keep the rest of the DR on side? Answer? YOU CAN'T and Klopp did the right thing esp. since Cou had been pee poor in many games this season as well. Klopp made the decision to protect the team from any distractions and that is fine by me. You?

14.) 26 Jan 2018 16:52:43
AW - maybe your right coutinho was not always great at breaking down teams but a few times like a Leicester he’d pull off a free kick or something special.

But that aside even if coutinho isn’t the answer I’d expect the club to address all those draws by either tweaking the style. City play similar to Liverpool but don’t draw as much as us, why? Quality of team especially in the middle of the park. They’ve got KDB and silva pulling the strings.

If we aren’t going to change of style we need to improve the squad in my opinion.

15.) 26 Jan 2018 16:56:48
This is what I don't get. Why should we knee jerk buy?
So who are these first targets we are holding out For?
Because I'm guessing Lemar, Griezmann, Pulisic, Icardi are all second choices then clearly because reading this site and the gobshite that spews onto Twitter. They were our targets and they are obtainable this window.
What I don't get is, someone to do with Monaco has come out and said 70million is the asking price for Lemar This Window.
And Klopp said if they come avaible we'll try. But not for 90 million.
I'm confused because come the summer if any player we have been linked to (Top, Top Talent) and their willing to come now but we wait, it could come back to bite us in the arse. They could have a great world cup and their parent club demand even more of a stupidly inflated price or not be interested in us as someone else has caught their eye.

after this being said and done. I have to put my trust in Klopp and wait.

{Ed002's Note - Who from Monaco has said that?}

16.) 26 Jan 2018 17:32:19
The way I see it we should strengthen in his window buy a second or third target because the truth is we don’t make top 4 this season we can forget getting are desirable targets in the summer 😹😹 which always happens to us 😢.

17.) 26 Jan 2018 17:41:57
Brover, always respect your opinion my man but I would have kept him till the summer if which it seems to be the case, we do not have a desirable target lined up.

An unhappy Coutinho has played a big part in our season till now.

I would have got rid if we had a player in mind.

Also the word knee jerk is debatable. I would have expected multiple targets examined carefully. First choices are not always and i would actually say rarely possible. Not enough homework has been done on this matter.

18.) 26 Jan 2018 23:45:55
As far I can see it, Spurs are our only competitor for top 4 and they are n't linked with anyone this window . We done our business at the very start and got the class defender we were lacking, so we done more business than they did.
You can't just buy for the sake of buying, yes we are weaker without Coutinho but that are n't many players like him available that we can go and get.

19.) 27 Jan 2018 00:19:17
Only saw your reply now BRover.

I do believe him, what I was saying is, I'd love to know what exactly was said to make it impossible for Klopp to use Coutinho if he was forced to stay - these are Klopp's own words.

I'm guessing Coutinho would strike.



30 Aug 2017 16:06:42
Barcelona certainly don't have the money to sign coutinho and lemar so maybe them bidding for lemar is a sign that we won't be accepting a late bid for Phil? I know Barcelona are trying to sign Di Maria as well but the numbers quoted for him are substantially cheaper.

I would be impressed if we kept coutinho and signed lemar you can't deny that would show some serious ambition from the club!


1.) 30 Aug 2017 16:12:04
It's good to know you're the accountant for one of the worlds richest clubs.



29 Aug 2017 14:05:14
If we can bring in Lemar, VVD and sanches on a loan deal to tie us over till next summer when Keita arrives I will be over the moon!

Phil who?


1.) 29 Aug 2017 14:23:51
I really rate Sanches. Would be happy to sign him after a loan, great potential to be world class.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 14:40:21
I doubt we would bring in Sanches and lemar it's one or the other.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 14:42:26
Didnt impress me for Bayern. Im watching Bundesliga pretty much twice on saturdays and he didn't stand out last year. If he would have been such a good transfer/ player they wouldn't have to buy tolliso for the same position as his.

I think Ed002 has said it before, it is easier to shine when palying for your country than playing for the club. I think lemar and VVD would be nice to get but no need for Sanches (also it has been said a few times, that we have not made any contact to munich)

4.) 29 Aug 2017 14:43:23
Will be exciting to watch, skill, pace and dynamism, with a commanding centre half.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 15:12:05
I do think that we need another CM was the reason for my Sanches remark. Only in that I can't see Gini, Can and Hendo staying fit all season. We have Grujic and Lallana too but with the added European competition one more quality CM wouldn't go a miss!

6.) 29 Aug 2017 15:43:19
But as Ed002 has stated before: They want playtime guarantee and we can't provide that. Also having Grujic, Lallana, Milner. on the Bench it will be hard for him no matter how big of a talent he might be. Oh and to make his chances even smaller: Imagine Counts/ Lemar coming in as well as more offensive players. Youd have Lemar/ Coutinho/ Lallana as more offensive CMs and Gini/ Can/ Hendo/ Grujic/ Milner for two defensive positions. No way he is getting more gametime then he is getting for bayern atm.



25 Aug 2017 11:32:45
Eds do you see our dormant transfer behaviour in recent weeks as a sign of us seeking alternative targets or are we playing some sort of waiting game on the targets we already know about? Hard for you to answer that I know but I'm trying to get my head around what it is our transfer committee are doing as we are not seeing/ hearing about any progression on any deals.
Very frustrating when you see the likes of Man City who are very aggressive in the transfer market get their deals done so quickly.


{Ed002's Note - There is no conspiracy, secret messages or anything else going on. Klopp set out with named targets and right now has none of them. Macca seems confident at least one will arrive and I have no reason to doubt him. Equally Klopp has said that he is satified with what has already been done and he already has enough centre backs. Quite frankly I would pay little heed to what he is saying. Maybe he has learned the lesson that there are better ways to go about transfers that the way he has done it this summer.}

1.) 25 Aug 2017 11:42:49
I'm hoping for at least 2 players to come in. A quality CB and either a CM or Winger. Both of Pipco leaves which I think he might if Barcelona offered something like £110 m up front with £25-35 m in add ons. I'd let him go for that if I'm honest. I can't really see a way back for him, he's a quality player and will be missed but I'd rather have players 100% committed to the cause.

2.) 25 Aug 2017 12:15:13
Same here. I would expect / hope at least 2 to arrive in the next 6 days! A CB who can head the ball, A CM who can dictate the game!

3.) 25 Aug 2017 13:31:16
From your mouth to his ears, I hope, Ed002. Without going into details, let's just hope he's understood in precise details, what needs to be done (and not done), in the future.



21 Aug 2017 16:18:21
If we are hoping to get 3 transfers in before the end of the window (I think we need 3 and that seems to be the general consensus) surely we should be seeing some news this week with regards to at least one of the deals?!

A week and a half to go Ed001 are you as worried as the rest of us 😂?

We do need another wide player given the lack of rest Mane is getting currently. He'll be starting against hoffenheim and arsenal so that'll be 5 games in two weeks!


{Ed001's Note - not worried mate, I have bigger worries than if we buy players or not. Teams are built not bought.}

1.) 21 Aug 2017 16:52:48
Some people are so engrossed in football.

There are far more important things than football and Liverpool, such as who will become Brucies replacement and what format the new x factor will take this year.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 17:03:21
Personally i would have thought that kent would be the perfect understudy but i have seen reports that he may be sent out on loan again to germany this time. I have mixed feelings about this, he obviously benefitted from playing regularly at barnsley and playing regularly in the bundesliga will definately bring him on again. But he could also do a job for us right now but he would not play regularly. I just don't know how to call this one in afraid.

Either way he def deserves the new contract he has been given as he has clearly applied himself last year and he has improved.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 17:56:00
Ed001, love the cool and the calm. Refreshing!

{Ed001's Note - makes a change for me!}

Yeah he had to be moved on in jan but surely we should have had a replacement lined up Ed002? Especially if the management had known of this situation before the window had even opened. After the summer we should have identified a target and prepared for this then in my opinion.
I guess it’s not as easy as that and I’m sure the club will have tried that but Dortmund’s approach with Auba would have been what I wanted us to do (not signing on the dotted line until a replacement is in place)


{Ed002's Note - All I can say is I hope you all get your way and Liverpool drop out of the European places so you can tell the club that Liverpool are indeed a one man team and they were wrong not to listen. Then you can all feel satisfied and smug.}

We really need to be bringing through a strong core of youngsters who would die for the Liverpool shirt. Getting fed up of these new signings angling for a move.

Macca could you disclose the position of the player just to get our guesses in the right ball park? Is it a coutinho replacement?

Coutinho showed glimpses of his promise as soon as he signed for us I remember some classy assists for Sturridge. Those two really created a great partnership before sturridges injuries.

Move Gomez to CB, sell Clyne and buy another RB to compete with TAA.
Sell matip.
Sell Moreno and buy a new LB to compete with Robbo.
Give Karius till the end of the season. if he hasn’t done the business sign Alisson.

On top of that if we can bring in a DM and another forward that would be a brilliant summer for me.

5 new signings max.

What frustrates me is when we sign a player that has gone on to do well for the club i. e score goals and one leaves in the same window. The Torres/ Suarez partnership springs to mind.
We don’t know how VVD will turn out but if he does the business then it will frustrate me that coutinho didn’t stay with Keita and potentially Lemar in the summer too. Throw Allison in to the mix as well and that would have been one of the strongest Liverpool sides we’ve seen in recent years.
All if ands and buts of course but it’s nice to dream. perhaps we will get a more creative midfielder that can control the tempo and we will be more balanced than I’d we had coutinho next season. food for thought.

With any luck we can sort out a deal for Messi today then.
