Graeme Kelly saying Butland will 'more than likely sign for liverpool' this summer. He's proved to be a more believable source over the past couple of years but I leave it up to everyone else to decide whether he's accurate or not.


1.) 23 Apr 2018 17:24:05
Yeah he is pretty spot on alright. Called Robertson months before anyone even mentioned him and ox months before also. I was critical of karius and have to say he is proving me wrong since he came back in. This deal makes no sense to me. If we want to replace karius it needs to be oblak Allison or someone of that ilk. Butland will cost 30+ million because he is British regardless what division he is in. Klopp has done a fantastic job so if that's who he wants that's who he gets what do I know.

2.) 23 Apr 2018 17:46:23
Well if Stoke get relegated maybe he won't be that expensive if he has a release clause in his contract (just assuming) . Stoke has racked up a huge wage bill over the last couple do years with signing big players. I am sure if they go under they will have a hard time paying those wages.

Mignolet will want to leave and compete else where for a starter spot and I am sure Danny Ward does not want to be second fiddle. Going from Stoke to Liverpool will be a huge jump for Butland if he wants to be on a Champions League team. The guy has not set the PL or England National Side a blaze with his goalkeeping heroics. I can see how this deal can go through, as did Begovic when he moved to Chelsea.

3.) 23 Apr 2018 19:08:11
I would be truly disappointed with the mediocrity of Butland unless he was intended to fit in as a second keeper with Karius resuming first choice and Migs to depart. If we are looking for a first choice keeper than mediocrity isn’t good enough for the way LFC are progressing in Europe. Although I would add that Robertson is mediocre but his work rate and ethic are fantastic.

{Ed025's Note - i think robbo is better than mediocre myself ben..

4.) 23 Apr 2018 19:37:41
I’m not sure this would be a good move. I will always support a player wearing LFC red but I don’t see him as any better than Karius, who has come on leaps and bounds. Yes he still has some issues, but Butland is no better IMO. Even if he just comes in as competition that hardly sends a good message to Karius does it and Butland would want to be No. 1.No I think get some older experienced hands happy to be a number 2 but still ensure Karius is on his toes. Be interested to hear the eds thoughts on Butland v Karius.

5.) 23 Apr 2018 19:43:42
Robertson mediocre?! Even the most bitter utd fans i know have admitted they'd live Robertson and he's been an absolute bargain. Fans need to trust klopp and the lads making the transfers. I have been on here and defended Robertson, ox, salah and van dijk when we were buying them. And they all worked out brilliantly. If we sign Butland we need to get behind him. He's a young gk who had massive potential and has struggled at times in a terrible team. sound familiar?

6.) 23 Apr 2018 19:54:09
UncleBens you lost me at 'Robertson is mediocre'. I suspect you wouldn't be saying that if he was French or Italian with tattoos and a flashy haircut.

7.) 23 Apr 2018 20:26:25
Robertson being mediocre is obviously a harsh statement. However, let's not get all caught up in the better keepers out there. When Karius first came everyone was excited because of the reputation he came with as the second best keeper in the Bundesliga. He struggled, but he is getting better why not let him build on it instead of giving him insecurities. In all honesty I never heard much about Allisson until this year, I am sure this is not his first year at Roma either.

We always try to sell talent coming to be apart of something being built, we as supporters should show the same loyalty to players who have gotten us to where we are now. Karius is definitely a big part of that now, no need to abandon him.

8.) 23 Apr 2018 21:16:03
I’m glad my comments have sparked a fair debate over Robertson. It’s really good to hear a list of varied opinions, including the Ed’s too. That’s what makes this sight so great to read everyday.
I do stand by my opinion of Robertson and it certainly has nothing to do with him being an underdog nor where he is from. We purchased him knowing he would fight to prove himself and that is his work ethic. That’s what I find so brilliant about him and I do genuinely believe he is mediocre.

9.) 23 Apr 2018 21:55:07
Not an improvement on Karius so unlikely.

10.) 23 Apr 2018 22:26:45
Butland is no improvement in what we have. The next step from karius would be a world class keeper an oblak type, right now I’d keep karius and save the money unless we are going for a top class keeper. Butland is overrated.

11.) 24 Apr 2018 04:34:02
Reina is available on free.

12.) 24 Apr 2018 10:56:42
Harry - Alisson joined Roma in July as understudy to Szczesny. Became first choice last year and has come on leaps and bounds. Everything i've hear is that he is extremely good.
However I agree with you that Karius is doing a great job. he's still prone to making the odd mistake but hopefully he will continue to work hard on improving his game and make the position his own for years to come.
Regarding Robbo - I like him. he's not flashy but he works hard and seems willing to learn. What more can you ask for?

13.) 24 Apr 2018 14:27:21
I would keep Karius, he is still learning, and will become a great goalkeeper, he needs to learn when to come out of his goal tho, the 2nd V west brom, he should only have come off his line by a yard or so to narrow the angle, then its an easy save,
like I said, keep Karius, but bring in a left back, moreno has to go, also another centre back and let Matip go,
a deep midfielder to replace Can,
I would use what players we have and who are coming back from loan to cover the front three .

14.) 24 Apr 2018 15:10:52
😂LMAO. Lost me a mediocre uncle ben.

I would love to hear what part of Robertson game you think is mediocre? His tackling? Crosses? Attitude? Reading of the game? Speed?

Of just because our club spotted somthing in player playing for a mediocre team (Hull) he is now desitened to be classed as mediocre for the rest of his career?

In my opinion you should base your judgement on performance and there is no way, in my opinion, that anyone can say he has had anything near a mediocre performance this year and even beyond.

15.) 24 Apr 2018 21:14:42
Anybody want to put their money on Allisson Becker? Could have just been a bad day at the office for the lad.

16.) 25 Apr 2018 03:23:19
Not much he could do about those goals and he saved a fair few that could have made it worse. Roma management want to lock him down to a big contract so I sincerely doubt he moves to England. Of course Roma do love a dollar and he'd be a good candidate for a massive fee but they've got a damn good team there and would had to let an amazing keeper go.

{Ed0333's Note - I didn’t think he made any world class or eyebrow raising saves last night. I’m not being disparaging because I’m sure he’s an excellent keeper I just haven’t seen enough of him to make a judgement. I can only comment on what’s put in front of me.



24 Feb 2018 21:05:30
According to Paul Joyce we want Jorginho from Napoli in the summer. Would be some deal if we can get him in.


1.) 24 Feb 2018 21:55:14
Now we’re talking! Hope so.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 22:10:57
With him being so popular we’d probably have to steal him to get him😏.

3.) 24 Feb 2018 22:02:41
Nah. Just another name not mentioned by the eds. Not having it.

4.) 25 Feb 2018 00:24:14

5.) 25 Feb 2018 01:57:27
Seriously. What player in world football wouldn’t look at what Liverpool are doing right now and not want to play for them if they come knocking? The only things to hold them back are money. The trophies will come. Believe.

6.) 25 Feb 2018 03:04:07
Perfect midfielder for our system. We get a proper No.6 and allows Hendo to move into his preferred position and as a utility player.

7.) 25 Feb 2018 05:44:23
Jorginho lob balls to the Fab 3 will be nightmare for any team. Imagine having to mark Salah, Firmino and Mane all at once with lob balls falling from all sorts of place. This guy can defend and turn it to lightning pace counter. To me we must get him at all cost!

8.) 25 Feb 2018 14:26:02
Jorginho (if true) would be a spectacular addition. The Xabi Alonso type of player to sit alongside Keita and Hendo/ Wijnaldum (choose one) .

9.) 25 Feb 2018 15:26:25
Kwkhong, then add into the equation that if teams drop deep to stop the runs in behind we will have Naby to pick the ball up in the spaces. Fingers crossed we really push on in the next window and get some top top talent.



24 Jan 2018 12:29:30
Ed002, is there going to be a sharkopod going up soon? Not thinking of just Liverpool but teams like Arsenal and Spurs. Always interested I listen to them even when it's not to do with Liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - For a few other clubs hopefully.

1.) 24 Jan 2018 13:19:14
Okay I look forward to hearing them mate.



06 Jan 2018 12:15:35
Ed001, are you able to throw any names into the ring about who you've heard we're interested in? We've heard from ed002 but it'd be interesting to hear what your contacts are telling you about any additional targets that we have.
Thanks mate.


{Ed001's Note - right now I have nothing to add to what Ed002 has said, but I am still trying to chase up people after having had a couple of weeks off. There is the possibility of Keita, who wants to sort out a deal to come now, if not we are considering Ceballos or another central mid and a replacement for Coutinho. As far as I can find out, that is all for January, unless someone suddenly becomes available Klopp wants.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 12:39:43
Is Goretzka completly off the table, if it was ever there? Would love to see Keita join in january, but wouldn't mind Goretzka or Ceballos at all. As for Coutinhos replacement if you will, would that stand between Mahrez or Lemar, or do Liverpool have got other subjects up their sleeve?

{Ed001's Note - Goretzka was the other central mid I was referring to, I just couldn't think of his name! I do not know of any interest in Mahrez but there is interest in Lemar.}

2.) 06 Jan 2018 13:12:24
Cudnt we give Leipzig grujic on loan or some other players on fringes in exchange for keita now great experience for him, also seeing as emre can leaving do u think we will replace him like for like as in tall powerful enforcer I like that type of player in our midfield and I am sure we would feel the hit of not having them attributes in central midfield areas, at one stage I thought grujic might b one answer but he doesn't seem to have adapted or progressed I hope he does.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 06 Jan 2018 13:32:56
now that ed01 and ed02. have given all the info we need can we please stop throwing random names and questions of when it will happen its taking too long to sift through all the nonsense that people are posting and no doubt the ed's are just fed up with it all.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 14:42:13
It's a rumours site.

I appreciate the frustration but some of us don't visit every day and the search engine isn't consistent.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 15:45:53
You don't visit everyday!? Wow! 😂.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 16:32:31
Giantkey you should be visiting hourly let alone daily!

7.) 06 Jan 2018 17:04:26
Thanks ed, that's great mate!

{Ed001's Note - glad to help.}

8.) 07 Jan 2018 17:04:43
To be fair lads when VVD was flirting with us over the summer I spammed the refresh key like nobody's business.

I'm just jealous I can't be on here all the time to keep up to date 😂.



02 Jun 2017 20:20:06
Lyon and Monaco are the latest clubs linked with Origi. Someone mentioned yesterday that Lazio are interested too. Ed is any of this true?
Also regarding Mendy, are we willing to change our stance or is it looking increasingly unlikely?


{Ed025's Note - i have heard nothing on origi daredman, and city look in the box seat with mendy at the moment but its by no means a done deal yet mate..

1.) 02 Jun 2017 21:25:22
Cheers ed, I know you must be sick and tired of answering about mendy now. He is the left back we need imo.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 03 Jun 2017 10:19:19
It seems a shame for us to miss out on Mendy if what Macca says is true and he did want to join us.

As annoying as it is we can't afford to match the wages City can offer and we have to live within our means.

Hi ed001,
Regarding scouting which I asked you about earlier, would you ever consider going into scouting at all? Your player profiles and reviews are top class so I'd wonder if most scouts would be able to pick up the same things as you do?
Thanks mate.


{Ed001's Note - a few years ago I would have loved to, but now it is not really possible to do all the travelling it requires.

Every scout sees different things, though the FA do scouting courses now to try and open the eyes to more of the things they believe scouts should be looking for in a player. It really depends on the person though, some will see more, some will see less, some will see completely different things.}

1.) 20 May 2018 08:44:57
I know a lad who does it for Everton, don’t think it’s a hard thing to get into, he goes watching kids and does a report on them, think he only gets paid if they get signed.

2.) 20 May 2018 09:54:51
Thanks ed, appreciate your respnose!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}



11 May 2018 22:55:35
Big shoutout to ed001. He's had to fill ed002's shoes regarding transfer news and the like and his patience with the repeated questions has been great.
Loving your input on things and the work you put in for us on this page everyday is brilliant. Thanks a lot pal.


{Ed001's Note - my 3 broken keyboards over the last few days would probably disagree regarding patience.... ;-)

1.) 12 May 2018 09:07:28
Well said mate, I think the majority would join you with praising Ed1's efforts.



09 May 2018 16:14:06
Thanks for the feedback regarding the u23s later down the page gents. I'll have those updates coming back again from next season.


1.) 09 May 2018 17:50:08
Fair play RDM thank's for that.



08 May 2018 22:38:11
Hi all, I don't know if anyone remembers but I did the u23s update weekly last season. It's been a busy year so I haven't really had time but next season I could be able to get back to the updates. I loved doing them and would be happy to do them again. I'm just wondering if people want this though as I don't want to spend time writing something that people aren't that interested in.

If I am to do it don't expect full match reports like last time, perhaps just a break down of scorers, top performances etc.


1.) 08 May 2018 23:57:21
I'd love it if you could mate, I don't have the time to follow it as much as I'd like to so updates would be great mate.

2.) 09 May 2018 01:25:12
Always loved reading them mate, if you have the time to write them up next year I'm sure it would be much appreciated not just by myself!

3.) 09 May 2018 04:15:24
Thank you Redman. I am sure that I speak for all that we crave info About our youth prospects as well as folks out in loan.

4.) 09 May 2018 04:44:04
I watch most of their games, but I like having a different point of view. Please do them next season.

5.) 09 May 2018 06:54:54
Yes mate enjoyed reading those nice one.

6.) 09 May 2018 11:55:51
It's something I never seem to find the time to follow up on so if you were happy producing the updates again I know I'd enjoy them.

7.) 09 May 2018 13:37:27
Yeah, would really appreciate if you could start them up again, were a good read and it's great to get an insight of the younger players when you don't have the chance to watch the games.

Cheers dude!



16 Apr 2018 16:36:46
Could we possibly have an awards style thing from the eds where they all pick their player of the year, young player of the year, breakthrough player, signing of the season etc.? I'd certainly be interested in seeing their picks.
Also ed001, i would to get your opinion on the season and whether you think we are overachieving or at the right level. Perhaps added depth should be the aim over the next few windows?
Thanks in advance!


{Ed001's Note - do you mean across the Prem or Europe or what?

We achieve what we deserve surely?}

1.) 16 Apr 2018 18:19:47
I'd like that actually. Premier League only would be best and then the Eds could vote for each of the following categories;

1. Manager of the year
2. Player of the year
3. Young player of the year
4. Most improved player of the year
5. Goal of the season
6. And then team of the season XI

Could maybe just do yourself Ed001, plus the Eds in the weekly prediction competition? Would be a great read.

{Ed001's Note - I will ask them.}

2.) 16 Apr 2018 18:51:07
Premier league is what I meant sorry.
I really respect the eds' viewpoints and I'm sure many others do too so would love to hear what you all think.

{Ed001's Note - I have asked them, I will post it up when they have all given their answers.}

3.) 16 Apr 2018 19:00:52
I’m going to weigh in with best looking Liverpool team ever, surely this one is it! Look at the Ox with his little freckles and curly hair. Not to mention Karius and his beautiful Instagram efforts. Can’s pout gets a shout, but seeing as he is on his way out, an honourable mention goes to Bobby’s teeth and Salah’s hair.
What do you guys think? 😁.

4.) 16 Apr 2018 19:27:37
Kate, I always thought Lovren was the best looking player in the team. Tall, dark, handsome and rugged.

But then I'm a man so I don't know what women want. If I did, I'd bottle it a sell it.

{Ed002's Note - But you seem to know what men want.}

5.) 16 Apr 2018 19:51:04
Thank you very much ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

6.) 16 Apr 2018 20:01:59
No mention of John Flannegan in the best looking team?

7.) 16 Apr 2018 20:05:10
I see what you’re saying but for me, he’s a bit too much like a wet weekend (and not in a good way) . Remember the pre-season video when they were diving into the freezing river? Raggy is your Adonis, CB wise. 😀.

8.) 16 Apr 2018 20:15:18
No mention of Flanno, for obvious reasons. 🤝

Only the handsome need apply. Like Hendo. Strapping. Horse like.

9.) 17 Apr 2018 00:18:29
This is getting weird.

10.) 17 Apr 2018 00:56:27
"getting", SGRed?!

We passed "getting" at "Can's pout"

Aoe, it's impossible to know if anyone an step up to the first team without trying them. For me I'd like to see Curtis Jones get a chance in the first team and Bobby Adekanye (who could prove to be great cover for Mane and Salah) . Also I think Connor Masterson deserves a chance next season.
Honourable mentions to Adam Lewis, Liam Millar and Rafa Camacho.

Oh and of course Rhian Brewster should get a chance once he's over his injury. We know all about him already but he needs to be given a chance if he can return to his level of performances prior to his injury.

They're always on each other's social media. I say keeping Lovren is essential this summer so that Salah remains happy😅.

22 May 2018 11:07:01
Not a fan of Kane at all. He showed that he's not a team player by claiming Erikson's goal, and when watching his post match interview after the last game of the season he said something along the lines of "I would have liked to have scored 4 or 5 to get the golden boot but at least we won. " For me that answer should be the other way around and the team winning should be of primary importance. The order a player ranks their individual performance and the team's result tells you a lot about them. As an example, I was in school with a lad playing for the Swansea u23s and he always ranks his performance above the team and makes similar comments to Kane.

Henderson deserves captaincy considering that he had it through qualifying I believe and has just led Liverpool to a champions league final. Oh and not to mention he puts the team first.

Not that I care about who's England captain being a Welshman myself😁.

You say about the prem next season Salah, and I reckon we'll win it next year. I've never been one of those to say that 'this is our year' but I truly believe that with the right recruitment we will win it.

That better not come back to bite me in the backside in a year's time like ed025. As we know, his record with making comments that are hilarious a year on leaves a lot to be desired;)

Well said, I'd say 95% of the people on here value what the eds say. The other 5% just like ruining things for other people.
