Hi Eds, I know you have told us that Madrids priority is Mbappe this summer but with the financial situation as it is now and PSG not wanting to sell are we coming to a situation where they might switch fire to Mane. I'm sure we wouldn't want him to move on and he seems happy but I always worry when the 2 big Spanish clubs come calling. I may be worrying over nothing as Mane would also be very expensive and almost impossible to replace like for like.


{Ed002's Note - Madrid want to take Mbappe this summer but there is indeed resistance from PSG who don't want to sell. That situation may change is PSG can bring a player in that they desire. In terms of Sadio Mane, Real Madrid are still looking at a major revamp and are using Eden Hazard on the LW which was not their plan. They have plans to bring in a specific RW/S in mind and a couple of alternatives but are likely to hold on to Asensio who they would rather let move on once fully fit - which he may not have proven by the summer. They have a bunch of senior players they have available for horse trading, particularly James Rodriguez, Isco and Bale and will look to include them in any major deal. I am not aware of any direct approach to the club for Mane at this time and it sounds rather speculative that they would go down that route - but he will perhaps be in their thoughts as it is not working out terribly well for Vinicius Jr at this time either. Mane is also seen as a possible Neymar replacement by PSG and by Barcelona as an option to Neymar. But again - there has been no approach to Liverpool.}

1.) 21 May 2020 14:01:38
That's put my mind at ease a bit, just read that the finances involved for neymar might make it impossible for Barcelona this summer as clubs can't afford to invest in the players they wish to let go. Perhaps it will be next summer before the high profile moves return.

2.) 21 May 2020 17:33:25
Den, Mbape is coming to Liverpool, done deal 😎.



04 May 2017 18:27:46
Ed, really strange news breaking in the media that Real Madrid might be having a look at Georginio Wijnaldum as a utility player. I take it we can dismiss the news? He would be a really expensive utility player and has only been with us a year.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. I am not so sure he would work as a utility player either.}

1.) 04 May 2017 19:30:47
It did seem one of the more odd rumours I've seen, it came out of Italy I believe and stated he was a back up option to hazard which in itself seems chalk and cheese.

{Ed002's Note - That does seem odd.}



31 Jan 2017 22:49:01
Sakho to palace confirmed, 2 mil loan fee seems a lot for 6 months though.


1.) 01 Feb 2017 02:44:52
Good deal for both parties - a shame as liked the guy and we could have done with a CB like him, but since Klopp has made up his mind good luck to him and hope he keeps Palace up.



12 Jan 2017 21:09:30
Ed, are Liverpool not interested at all in Saed Kolasinac. I would have thought we are still looking for a longer term solution at LB.


{Ed001's Note - such as Juanma! He has impressed as he has settled into English football.}

1.) 13 Jan 2017 00:34:57
very happy to hear that 001

{Ed001's Note - let's just hope he really has it.}

2.) 13 Jan 2017 05:06:08
You think is he ready for the 1st team soon? Read a few times of you praising him. Can't wait to watch him.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen enough to judge him, but certainly the coaches believe he is growing into the English game.}

3.) 13 Jan 2017 06:46:53
lets at least give him a chance, milner proved us all wrong so let's see what this lad is made of, we might have the answer to our problems staring us in the face, his path to the 1st team must not be blocked other wise what sort of message are we sending out not only to him but to all the youngsters who are impressing the coaches, not all of them will make it but let's at least give them a chance.

4.) 13 Jan 2017 10:41:46
Has a great throw in on him apparently!

5.) 13 Jan 2017 12:42:47
I`m eager to see him play as Ed has mentioned numerous times that the coaches think he`s the real deal.

6.) 13 Jan 2017 11:03:19
Cheers ed, I didn't realise he was so highly rated. I presume they will assess it in the summer and if he carries on improving will be given a shot pre season.

{Ed001's Note - unless injuries force him to get a shot.}

7.) 13 Jan 2017 19:02:57
Has there ever been talk of Milner playing right back, as we've had a few looks at some left backs. I know he's been excellent and a little harsh to shunt him again, just wondering. I know clyne's popularity is divided. For me he's so close to being another finan. Perhaps some competition might bring his game up like it did with finan.



06 Apr 2016 17:09:06
With Athletico looking unlikely to be able to do business with Chelsea for Costa this summer, do the eds know if there is any substance to the stories that they may be looking to benteke as an alternative?
I don't believe the quoted newspaper figures for a second but just wondered if they would be a likely buyer?


{Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any interest from them.}

11 May 2020 20:22:46
Ed, slightly away from sport in general as there seems to be a way to go before it is safe to resume but what do you make of the government's easing of the lockdown. On the face of it the guidance is easy enough to follow as an individual but as of Wednesday potentially millions will be flooding back to work completely reliant on each other and their employers safeguarding each other. Our daily cases are only slightly below what they were when we originally locked down and the R0 is only marginally below 1.have we moved too soon or is the need to get the economy moving again at the point where this is all completely necessary? Every industry is different but I know within mine there will be ill feeling from the shop floor workers who will need to go back to work and the managers who will largely continue to work from home. After the division brexit has caused it would seem that this will add to it after having hopes that it would ultimately bring us closer together.


{Ed002's Note - For me it is too soon. If it has gone wrong the earliest indications will be a couple of weeks later.}

1.) 11 May 2020 20:46:44
That's my worry, in two weeks cases cases will begin to build again and the rhetoric will be that the general public and employers wernt able to follow advice. if we had waited it out a little longer we may have been able to avoid what seems inevitable.

2.) 12 May 2020 11:15:07
Well to a certain extent that will be correct. We all by now know how this virus spreads and we all know the measures in how to prevent it. It is up to the general public to do their bit. That much is true.



24 Mar 2020 20:49:51
I'm not sure if there is an appropriate place to post this but wanted to ask Ed 02 as an American what his views on president trump wanting to relax Covid 19 restrictions on workers. I know we aren't getting it right for my money either when the rest of the world are completely locking down. Is it all down to money as it would seem that the economy is being deemed more important than the loss of life.


{Ed002's Note - Trump is a moron - he won’t be able to do anything stupid in respect of this issue. Right now the April 12 date (aside from being the birthday of two of my wives) is an improbable placeholder.}

1.) 25 Mar 2020 00:05:49
Don't worry guys, The Donald has spoken, Easter is the "wonderful timeline" to get things back to "normal".
Don't think I've agreed with Ed002 quite so much. If his words didn't carry so much weight, he'd be the most entertaining plonker on telly.

2.) 25 Mar 2020 09:25:23
Twins Eds002?😀.

{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

3.) 25 Mar 2020 16:41:07
Trump might be a moron, but he's a well advised moron who knows what the morons who vote for him like.

Aside from the hardcore anti-science crowd, who bought into his hailing of chloroquine as a cure for COVID based on one probably incidental case like an early 20th century snake oil salesman offering doses of radium to fix everything, there's a whole bunch of people who basically see any state reaction to COVID as "PC and Health and Safety culture gone mad" (I won't use the phrase they use, cos the Eds won't let my post through if I do), and think it's just the flu. If Trump 're-opens' America for business before this has settled down, and especially before things get back to normal in Europe, they'll be even more all over him than they already are. Nevermind if tens of thousands of people give COVID to their grandparents who subsequently die as a result.

4.) 25 Mar 2020 20:35:56
Any reason why my reply to this thread didn't go up?

{Ed002's Note - I didn’t cut it but we are not going to post nonsense like that.}



14 Mar 2020 14:09:45
A slightly different question, I read that a French TV provider is trying to sue their league for simply moving their fixtures to midweek during the yellow vest protests last year. Has the Premier league TV monies for this season already been paid? And if so will sky, BT and overseas providers expect money back as their contracts based over a 38 game season will not have been fulfilled. If it hasn't been paid yet would they withhold it?


{Ed002's Note - It is of zero relevance to the PL.}

1.) 14 Mar 2020 14:41:16
So all pre agreed games earmarked for broadcasting don't have to be fulfilled to satisfy contracts? I assumed if you pay for a product and you don't get you would expect your money back, no matter how unpleasant the circumstances.

{Ed002's Note - If the broadcasters want to pay a reduced amount for the games they need to discuss it with the PL who might not be so keen to re-award contracts in the future. These are exceptional circumstances and it is a totally different situation to the rest of Europe. You are looking for problems that simply are not there.}

2.) 14 Mar 2020 15:39:07
You are completely correct Ed, I'm obviously panicking that the best season we are ever likely to have may be stricken from the records. I noticed the national league is still playing today and if they complete their season it will add to the problems concerning promotion and Relegation (what would happen with Bolton and their points deduction) It looks like an absolute minefield in terms of what will/ should happen.

{Ed002's Note - There are several options but there are different ruling bodies. The FA could look to mandate a solution but right now the focus is on something else entirely. As far as the Premier League go, there is already one proposal on the table as I explained yesterday. Others will no doubt be suggested if it comes to it. They will look to completing the season if they can, if not the alternate options come in to play.}

3.) 14 Mar 2020 16:00:51
Thanks for the replies Ed, apologies for clutching at straws but I was 7 the last time we won the league title and sods law doesn't seem to cover what's happening right now.

{Ed002's Note - I understand people are concerned but everyone wants the season completed Den and I certainly hope that can happen.}

4.) 14 Mar 2020 16:41:28
In the same Den, was 9 last time they won it. My boy is now 10 and a huge fan himself, was so hoping that on 21st of March, my birthday, I would be sitting with him celebrating after the Palace game. But in all honesty the world has bigger problems at the moment.

I have asked my son to go to the elderly neighbours we have on our street and ask if they need help or need anything from the shops and have been on shopping and errand runs this morning. We love football and we love watching Liverpool but as neither are happening right now we are doing the small amount we can for the most vulnerable we have close by us.

Just hope this virus leaves as quickly as it came and as few people as possible are affected and we can get back to singing our songs and following our team.

5.) 14 Mar 2020 16:53:41
I hear you Kim it's all pretty worrying. I've just spoken with my parents who were due to visit for my sons birthday but we have cancelled as they both have underlying health issues. We live in Tidworth which houses over 10000 troops and their families so I would imagine a matter of time before it's everywhere here. Worse still my mother works in a care home and suffers from asthma so I'm crossing my fingers she will be OK.

6.) 14 Mar 2020 17:07:23
IMO, everyone needs to stop panicking about this "season voided" stuff cos it is a non starter as a first option. It is not in anyone's interest, really. The PL are not interested in cancelling the season and are not working hard and fast on that, IMO. Their first option is to find every way to finish the season even if it will mean cramming games into a short schedule or what have you.

People need to get out of this LFC bubble and think on a wider scale. I mean, does anyone think teams like Wolves, Utd and Sheffield want the season cancelled when they have realistic chances of making it to the top 4? Of course they don't and that goes for the teams in the current relegation spots. The PL know that and are working on things, as Ed02 has repeatedly said on here so let the guys work while we make sure all our families, friends and everyone remain safe and healthy. Peace and Good health to all!

7.) 14 Mar 2020 18:11:39
Rm like you do with everyone else could I ask you to elaborate please. You say cancelling the season is a non starter as a first option and the premier league are not interested in cancelling it. What is your source please? You then go on to say it’s your opinion. So is it an opinion or fact because you seem pretty sure the premier league are not interested in cancelling and it’s a non starter.

8.) 15 Mar 2020 12:13:26
JK23, read my post again and you will find that I referred to Ed02 and what he/ she has been saying about them working hard to finish the PL. If you have info to debunk what he/ she is saying then, you should ELABORATE and provide it.

Ed02 has said repeatedly that finishing the season is what the PL are working on and after that, all other options will be considered. That is where my opinion comes from. The fact that I have to say this is mind-boggling but there are worse things going on in the world, clearly.

Now, this may be foreign to you but it is possible to have an opinion based on information/ facts being provided to you by those in-the-know (Ed02). Like I said if you have facts to debunk what Ed02 has provided. Peace.

9.) 15 Mar 2020 16:08:34
RM I READ your post again. You stated that the season voided was a non STARTER and that the PL are not interested in cancelling the league. To me that sounds like you have a source within the league or you’re just making it up. Nothing said is FOREIGN to me. Everything is changing daily. This time 4 days ago it was reported that games wouldn’t be cancelled they would be played behind closed doors. Look how quickly that changed. Everyone is entitled to their opinion hence why I asked about yours. PEACE.



20 Jul 2019 10:22:30
Ed I want to ask a question about the Spanish press story that we are about to offer Salah new terms on £400K a week. I'm not asking about the validity of it as it is so outlandish it can't be and it would put us in a tight spot with regards to our other high end players. The question is why report it and what is the angle, could they be trying to unsettle him? It litteraly makes no sense since he signed new terms on mega money last year.


{Ed002's Note - No they are not trying to unsettle him. They will have reported it as they have been told that is the case.}

1.) 20 Jul 2019 11:42:57
We can’t be paying him that much Ed, Guaranga.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 11:47:47
Well one thing is for sure, with Salah about to sing a massive new contract, whoever wants to take him from us will be paying the highest premium.

3.) 20 Jul 2019 11:57:25
Perhaps the agent angling for a pay rise?, there's no way we are going to pay a player that much.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 12:00:22
If Ramsey is deemed to be worth 400k at Juve and Sanchez 350k at utd, God knows what Salah, Mane, Virgil et al. are worth.

5.) 20 Jul 2019 12:09:53
Whenever I see the word guaranga I can’t help thinking of the very first GTA game.

6.) 20 Jul 2019 12:17:02
Sanchez at £350k+ per week still makes me laugh. And they’re stuck with him as he’s become football’s equivalent of a Giffen good.

7.) 20 Jul 2019 12:40:35
Can only imagine what its like to be on 100k+ every week and still feel like you need more.

8.) 20 Jul 2019 13:11:47
How can Salah feel like he wants more money when LFC are securing future investment for a player which wants to leave?

{Ed025's Note - its called avarice mate..

9.) 20 Jul 2019 13:32:14
Nah Ed025, when another team approaches us for Salah on a lucritve contract, and let's face it he is a top player then we will be in the driving seat when it comes to negotiations. We do not need to sell Salah, just remember that.

{Ed025's Note - i know you dont max, but keeping a player who does not want to be there creates its own problems..

10.) 20 Jul 2019 14:59:01
If he came to me and asked for £400k per week I'd tell him where to shove it and go find a club who will pay it, plus the £150m transfer fee required. Thank you very much. He's good but that's an outlandish figure and will have an impact on every other good player at the club plus it will mean any quality player we want to sign will have that in mind as their starting salary. I'm also aware that this story is 99.9% likely to be untrue.

11.) 20 Jul 2019 13:54:48
If Salah wanted to go he would have been throwing his toys like Coutinho Ed025.

That is the difference. We know Salah wants to play for Real but at this point he has limited options so he will not be forcing a move unless another club to his prefernce puts up or shuts up.

Hope that clears the situation Ed025.

Salah is a beast, he is ours.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that mate..

12.) 20 Jul 2019 23:00:42
I’d rather sell Salah for 50 million than pay him anyway near 400,000 a week wages. He will be easily replaced.

13.) 21 Jul 2019 02:28:40
Not a chance that LFC with this current structure will even consider doubling salahs wage, he has 4 years I think left on his contract, already our top earner on 200k. If he wants that type of money he will need to leave. United have messed up with Sanchez, arsenal have messed up with ozil.

Once you set the paying rate that high you begin to create problems within the squad. When Ramsey sees ozil on that money he can then say that he deserves that too, rashford can ask why he's not deserving of Sanchez wage.

Our current situation is good, our first team players earn between 120 and 150k a week, very balanced and similar pay to each. I think firmino and VVD slightly more and salah the top at 200k. Mane only signed a long deal last year happily with only 90k. I like this structure, if any player wants to upset it he can get lost.

De ligt or mbappe would never happen if they can get silly money elsewhere. Madrid are stuck with bale because they paid him stupid money. Players hunger disappears when they get a contract that they know will never be topped. Sanchez ozil Ramsey bale, late 20s being offered 5 year deals on that money, that's when a player can easily relax and stop caring.

14.) 20 Jul 2019 22:47:51
Ed25, Salah leaving us does not depend only on him. He wants to play for RM and that is his business. That has nothing to do with the contractual commitment he has with us and he is intelligent enuff to know that. If he wanted to move at all cost, we all would have known about it. He is not angling for a move this summer so he will play out this season like he always has his last two season, killing it in the PL and CL. Next summer tho, things may be diff.

{Ed025's Note - a lot of it is down to his agent redwolf, yet another greedy blood sucking leech who is taking money out the game that should be used to enhance grass roots football imo mate..

15.) 21 Jul 2019 13:44:08
I fully agree, Ed25.



13 Jul 2019 11:31:24
Hi Eds, I noticed nothing has been said about Dani Olmo since December and we have some tenuous links to him at the moment. I know he plays in a position we are looking at but only 21 and relitivly unproven (although looks tidy from what I've seen) anything in it?


{Ed002's Note - Dani Olmo (AM/W) has been looked at by West Ham for more than a year when Dinamo Zagreb were happy to profiteer. They wanted too much and he has spent the season in Zagreb. With recent interest from Borussia Dortmund, Milan, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Cagliari and most noticably Bayern Munich, Spurs and Bayer Leverkusen, he will be moving this summer - but Spurs have now opted for an alternate solution.}

1.) 13 Jul 2019 11:43:50
Thanks Ed.

That's put my mind at ease a bit, just read that the finances involved for neymar might make it impossible for Barcelona this summer as clubs can't afford to invest in the players they wish to let go. Perhaps it will be next summer before the high profile moves return.

I'm fairly certain that the bundesliga is the only major league with any chance of getting going again. Obviously it's down to the individual league how they end the season and its starting to look like every one will be slightly different. Belgium declared champions, Holland no champions and no relegation/ promotion. The 3 scenarios muted in France all see PSG as champions and the same 3 teams relegated. I know there is a lot of money involved in the big 4 leagues (I guess this is why they will be the last to pull the trigger) but surely Fridays meeting will be the time to make decisions.

The obvious global situation obviously won't help them any, it's a shame for him that things haven't worked out I would have him back as I think he's still a fantastic player but I'm sure others wouldn't, are PSG not an option in some kind of package involving neymar?


{Ed002's Note - Possibly but it is another player the two clubs can reach a compromise on.}

I'm supprised Brandt is avaliable already, I assume they need to sell a few now that it looks like sancho may be staying in Germany for another year?


{Ed002's Note - Julian Brandt (AM/CM/LW) it is unrelated to Sancho but JB has been re-invented as a more central and attacking midfield player from being a winger and has had a good season but will be sold if any club matches the €60M asking price as Dortmund have found better and cost effective alternatives to JB when searching for Jadon Sancho replacements. Prior interest of Juventus has gone and Real Madrid have other targets, but could liik to him again. His availability might make Klopp think about the benefits his versatility could bring to Liverpool - so a wildcard option.}

I can see why there will be bleeting over every scenario. I'm sure Chelsea and Leicester would have no issue if the season ended now and they secure 3rd and 4th. if I was a Norwich fan I would want to avoid a restart unless Relegation was off the table as they are gonners. There's lots of "news" that's probably completely made up but if a resumption isn't backed then the season is curtailed and that leaves either PPG to decide all positions with Relegation and promotion. Roll back 1 full game week with promotion and Relegation. Draw a line with no Relegation or promotion. Or the German proposal that Ed 02 mentioned. There will be resistance to all of them so I have no idea how they navigate this and its probably why they are being so spineless in making a decision (along with the financial aspect) .


{Ed002's Note - Neither Chelsea nor Leicester are proposing or supporting ending the season now.}
