Hi Ed002,

Hope you are well.

Thank you for all the knowledge you have in the footballing world. I appreciate it.

Our team needs full backs and an attacker. Whom are we considering?


{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. I appreciate that it has been reported about all of these nailed on and reported players being of interest to the club - the likes of Werner, Dybala etc., but the reality is unless one of the key players were to leave that won't be happening.

Liverpool need a GK, CB, LB/RB cover and LM - could look to a Creative AM player (along the lines of Fekir) and drop Shaqiri and Keita down the pecking order - finding space for TAA in midfield looks tough to me, although Ed001 suggests that may well be on the cards. In terms of players looked at:

Kenny Lala (RB/RM) only just signed a new contract but has been looked at
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociadad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave
Ruben Dias (CB) Liverpool have watched the Benfica CB on several occasions and watched him in a national game against Croatia in September
Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
Francisco Ferreira (CB) was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced the way he is in order to turn any potential buyers away, such as Manchester City, West Ham and Borussia Dortmund who have also shown a little interest and watched him in the B side over the past 18 months.

In terms of attacking players:
Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets.}
Klopp likes Lorenzo Insigne (LW) - would be a Salah or Mane replacement but a very, very expensive €150M asking price.}

Ed2 - amazing as always! Thank you.
Fully expect to be decimated for this but will ask anyway - any chance of even the tiniest hint of the area in football you are involved with?
Based in your answers, won't suprise me to learn that you ARE football 😀.

{Ed002's Note - From the right side I may well look like a football, but what I do to make a crust is well known. I am currently sat in the bar of the Tel Aviv Hilton as the lounge is really busy.}

2.) 22 Mar 2019 18:54:47
What’s you’re tipple Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Right now I am having a snifter if gin. Tomorrow I shall be in one of the world’s greatest cocktail bars drinking tequila.}

3.) 22 Mar 2019 19:00:38
cheers edd2.

4.) 22 Mar 2019 19:07:41
Oh wow ed, I am a former Israeli in the UK.
Going to watch the Austria match?

{Ed002's Note - No, right now I am coming over a couple of times a month and my PA is staying longer than me. Shabbat Shalom.

5.) 22 Mar 2019 20:16:05
Thanks for all the info eds much appreciate mate.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, enjoy.}

6.) 22 Mar 2019 20:39:35
Enjoy Ed002!

7.) 22 Mar 2019 21:07:02
Thank you Ed. I really appreciate what you do for the site.

{Ed002's Note - Poster of the week.}

8.) 22 Mar 2019 21:48:00
Remember ed, I’m 1st name on the list to take over your job when you retire. I’ll send my c. v. over ed, you’ll never have seen anything like it 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, no problem.}

9.) 22 Mar 2019 21:59:22
What's the gin you're on Ed2?

Thanks for the info mate, hope you're enjoying the night.

{Ed002's Note - Sipsmiths,}

10.) 22 Mar 2019 22:11:30
Superb Ed002, really appreciate the info! Hope you’ve having a grand old evening good sir.

11.) 22 Mar 2019 22:15:21
Very nice! have you tried Monkey 47 Ed? if not I highly recommend.

{Ed002's Note - Probably is the answer. I always buy a bottle of any new gin I see, so there is much at home in England.}

12.) 23 Mar 2019 04:23:18
I always pictured you as more of a single malt type Ed. Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Not for me.}

13.) 23 Mar 2019 12:55:27
Have you had Liverpool gin ed?! If not, we should get a bottle sent to you.

{Ed002's Note - I may have done.}

14.) 23 Mar 2019 13:18:01
As a man who has no doubt sampled the finest and most expensive guns out there, what’s your number 1 recommendation?

{Ed002's Note - I don't like guns.}

15.) 23 Mar 2019 13:24:27
Damn autocorrect 🙈😂. Gins ed, gins.

{Ed002's Note - I shall be heading to one of the world’s finest cocktail bars for an early evening snifter in a couple of hours when it opens. I have very much a soft spot for Sipsmith gin.}

16.) 23 Mar 2019 13:29:16
I must admit Ed2 I'm not a big drinker, I'm a light weight and I'm not into gin too much but that monkey 47 stuff goes down a treat.

{Ed002's Note - I will look out for it.}

17.) 23 Mar 2019 17:22:52
Good choice Ed. I've done a few gin tours around London, well worth it and very interesting learning the history. Beefeater 24 (the red bottle) took me by surprise, really good drop. And Gin Mare is excellent, infused with Mediterranean herbs etc.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree about the 24 - Hilton use it in their lounges as the house gin.}

18.) 24 Mar 2019 09:08:58
Ed002, my missus recommends The Old Oxford Artisan Distillery Gin. It’s a small company based in Oxford, we both went to Uni there and still have connections in the city but discovered it by accident, they produce some lovely gin.

{Ed002's Note - I'll check it out.}

19.) 24 Mar 2019 11:58:03
Ed002, I'm off to Tel Aviv in about a month. Care to share this world beating cocktail bar you're off to so I too can enjoy their tequilas? I'm a big fan of the Fortaleza Blanco Tequila which I first had when I was in Cali last year. I could drink that all day.

{Ed002's Note - Imperial Craft - you need to make reservations.}

20.) 24 Mar 2019 13:09:41
If we're on gin recommendations then Brockmans should be on your radar. Available everywhere these days and is the gin I regularly use to convert non gin drinkers!

if we can free up space by selling Sturridge, Origi, Lallana and Mignolet i cannot see why we can't have Fekir/ Insigne and still keep the front 3. with playing over 70 games in 1 season, surely everybody will play.

we cannot have expectations to compete with City/ Bayern/ Real/ Barca with our current squad.

my god. this man plays for England and this is how you treat him. no wonder the last time you won a trophy was in 66. give him a chance. a confident Ox will be different to one you see now.

everything the Ed's are saying about Keita was said about Salah. like, the club says they don't want to sell and so on and on. Salah is now wearing no 11 shirt. its not Klopp and Co sends a list of players they want to the Ed's.


{Ed001's Note - don't lie. I was very plain that Salah wanted the move and I expected it to go through. The stumbling block was Roma investigating an illegal approach.}

Its now time he is sold. He was bought to help other players get over their injuries. He was bought score goals. How can he help Gomez when he can't help himself? His healthy living has not helped him one bit and blaiming coahes for his weak mentality will not suffice here. Fans have forgotten when last Sturridge played 10 games in a row. As ineffective as Origi is sometimes, he at least puts the Jersey and is prepared to fight on.

sad but he will never be fit for more than 5 games in a row.

As much as other teams are watching us, surely we should be watching them. The best game Salah had to date is against Watford at Anfield. that's 1 out of how many where he has failed to deliver.

He is not in the Messi/ Renaldo level. I accept that. But surely if you train daily, focus on finishing, factor in the noise levels and the like and pressure, a player of his calibre should be putting away the 2 clear chances he had against Everton. That game will be our defining moment because now we must HOPE other teams do us a favour.

There are so many times where he has had a chance to cross, square or put in Mane, but he fails to do so. His always looking for Firmino. Those stupid flicks and turns rarely work. He wants to do the impossible instead of the easy.

The minute we play as a team, we will score more goals.

then i suggest that the club work as hard as they can to get rid of dead wood. Mignolet, Lallana, Sturridge, Origi. no what the price we get, move on abut buy players who can give us different options and play with pace and power.

if we are not going to give Wilson, Kent and Ojo game, move them on as well.

i agree. been watching for awhile now and he cannot hold the ball up. can't see how Klop played in as a CF. seems he relies on his pace more than anything else. there was so many games when he could have squared the ball to play Mane in and he goes for goal. if his agent is still punting Real, then we should consider.

Robbo has been steady since Moreno's injury. his better than Milner. like Spurs, we have adequate cover in the fullback areas. not world class, but adequate.

Your heal is part of your foot of if I'm not mistaken. Footballers run on their feet hence me making the Fergie comment. Love Hendo. Been supporting LFC since the eighties. As bitter as Fergie was and as much as i don't like him, the man knew players. Built, broke up and rebuilt many successful teams. His comment as much as we may hate it stems from his knowledge of players.


{Ed001's Note - no, it stemmed from his bitterness after Hendo rejected his attempts to tap him up.}
