Pepe 1st interview leaked online . Is this Fekir mk 2 or is he signing or is it a hoax . Time will tell I suppose.


1.) 24 Jun 2019 21:54:30
Pp 1st interview leaked online? Ha Ha Jesus Christ please stop.

Holy rubbish it looks real!

6.) 24 Jun 2019 23:52:49
Saw the image, first day at melwood seems strange when hes at the Afcon.

7.) 24 Jun 2019 23:25:05
Hes in Egypts for the African cup of nations. Perhaps he has a double who did the medical and interview for him.

8.) 25 Jun 2019 14:08:19
Its the footage from Naby Keitas first interview.



06 Jan 2019 11:29:49
Hey Ed's any truth in Fulham wanting origi do u think if the club sold origi theyvwill be happy with sturridge firmino Salah mane Shaq as our forwards hopefully Brewster can get fit and make it in to that group is that the plan?


{Ed002's Note - They have found out that their first choice striker will not be an options so are looking at others. So perhaps they will speak to Liverpool.}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 11:37:09
Wolves would have been a good move for him in summer, he might regret that now, seeing how well they have done. Now that they are close to signing Abraham I think that ship has sailed.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 12:06:34
Origi and 1.7 mill for R S.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 13:01:46
Origi possibly leaving as well as Solanke. Was thinking that would leave us short on cover as will leave just Sturridge as back up Striker?

4.) 06 Jan 2019 13:06:02
Acered. The rumoured amount for Origi is £15m. Ryan Sessegnon is worth a lot more than £16.7m.

5.) 06 Jan 2019 11:47:04

6.) 06 Jan 2019 13:47:52
IT was Tongue it cheek epic.

7.) 06 Jan 2019 14:34:58
With Salah playing more and more as a striker, arguably we have Salah, Firmino and Sturridge all able to play there. I do think that leaves us a forward short however as if Salah plays upfront then we have Mane and Shaqiri as our only wide players with real pace.

I guess what I'm saying is I can see us getting in another forward if Origi goes, but it wouldn't necessarily have to be an out and out striker.

8.) 06 Jan 2019 17:00:45
Cmon Acered, be serious. At least £2m on top, if not even £2.1😀.



04 Jan 2019 16:12:33
So solanke and Clyne going to Bournemouth
Reading that ki Jana hoever to provide cover at right back
My question is when is Brewster back or to begin training as is he to fill solanke place in the squad.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 16:35:36
I read a while ago that Brewster was expected back in training in January. I'd imagine since Solanke has gone on a permanent deal that Brewster is close to a comeback.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 16:57:11
Wow. I remember posting that we'd signed and got international clearance for Ki Jana Hoever 2-3 months ago. I can't believe he's progressed so much so fast. He's only 16 and considered ready to be back up for the first team. To be honest, Dhfc, I had to Google him, as I couldn't believe he'd pushed on so quick.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 16:57:16
ki Jana is a kid, he shouldn’t be expected to provide cover when there’s this much pressure on a season. I’m assuming Milner and Fabinho are ahead of him and that clyne must of been an incentive for how much Bournemouth ended up paying for Solanke. Otherwise we should have kept clyne as a solid back up option.

That being said £19m for Solanke is very good business seeing as we’ve still got origi and sturridge for cover. If we could get a few more off the books and get decent amounts for them then we might possibly bring someone in before the end of the window.

4.) 04 Jan 2019 17:21:01
Kman92, so you wouldn't let Ryan Sessegnon provide cover for left back either? If you're good enough, you're old enough.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 18:19:33
I wonder if origi will be in demand in January cos if solanke going for 19 mill, origi worth 25 million, and maybe we could get another forward, Werner would be nice.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 19:47:19
Epic- Ryan Sessegnon is 18 with nearly 100 first team appearances, Hoever is 16 with not one first team appearance so not the greatest comparison.
I am however exited to see if he can get gametime, always good to see young lads break through.

7.) 05 Jan 2019 13:40:57
Cobra666- But many on here were desperate than we signed him when he was 16. You don't just suddenly have 100 first team appearances. It always starts with 1.

8.) 05 Jan 2019 22:42:41
Cobra 😂😂😂 did sessegnon get all those appearances for his 18th birthday? Or did he start making them when he was 15 or 16.

9.) 06 Jan 2019 11:19:38
So when are we signing Sessegnon? Kidding. I've been following Ki Jana since he signed so I'm caught between hoping he gets the opportunity to play and wishing we wouldn't rush him into the first team. He may just be someone Klopp wants around the first team to help with his growth. I can't see him making his debut when we are 4 points up and can't afford any mistakes.

{Ed002's Note - He is simply there as cover for injuries. If he makes his debut it will be in the FA Cup not the league at this time.}

Hey eds and reds

This season is getting serious now .
I was just wondering as to know what the plans are January seen loads of bull online and we are signing half of Europe . What's the real deal eds we buying or selling?



{Ed002's Note - Try the Sharkopod, but Liverpool have not signed Dembele or Pulisic.}

1.) 30 Dec 2018 13:54:14
Wouldn't want either dembele bad attitude, and pulisic is good but not prolific enough in assists an goals also sancho is better an took his place in the team .

2.) 30 Dec 2018 16:13:50
Ed’s reply to this is officially one of my 2018 highlights. :D.



13 May 2018 18:40:23
Hey eds and reds

What is the future of Brewster at the club I'm hearing he's going but the club are doing all they can to keep him . What do the eds see happening in this scenario



{Ed002's Note - There is interest in him from German clubs - this is not new. This has been discussed before, the search engine may help.}

1.) 13 May 2018 19:12:04
Cheers ed 2

I know he is a massive talent but how far away is he from 1st team competitive football


{Ed002's Note - In England on a regular basis - a couple of years or so I would think.}

2.) 13 May 2018 19:26:13
Ed is it true about Mondelbach allegedly tapping up Brewster?

Taste of our own medicine if true lol but sucks either way.

However if we aren't ready to play him, then I can see why his head has turned.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know if they have made a direct approach to the player. The original interest was from Dortmund, and RBL have also been looking at him.}

3.) 13 May 2018 20:44:33
Nice to hear off ya Ed- have you seen much of Brewster? If so do you rate him?

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to "rate" players I am afraid.}

4.) 13 May 2018 21:49:28
Dortmund’s success with Sancho shows it can work!

Whilst I think he should stay, I think he would do well in Germany.

5.) 14 May 2018 06:08:46
2 year loan with a return clause would be good for all.

{Ed001's Note - he is only on a youth contract, he doesn't have 2 years on it.}

{Ed002's Note - I am over Austria on a flight that has two "bands" on board. I have no idea who they are but they cluttered up checking in with equipment.}

7.) 19 Jul 2019 18:48:48
Heading to england ed02? Festival season eh, bands moving all over the place.

{Ed002's Note - Yes - we are all flying to London - due in at 8PM.}

Be interesting to know who the bands are. Do they look hipster-ish or metally?

{Ed002's Note - They look like oiks. but they are in a different cabin to nme so I won't see them again.}

9.) 19 Jul 2019 21:13:10
Lol @oiks!



02 Jul 2019 11:02:33
Hey Ed's any updates on your thoughts on who the club are actively trying to get rid of whether loan or sale .

This window seems different to the last from a fans perspective as I can't m
Identify a glaring weakness which is brilliant but confusing as a fan to see wheir we can improve .



{Ed002's Note - Nope.}



26 Jun 2019 21:44:17
Hey Ed's

Remembering one of you telling the rest of us all transfers are done in euros that is the currency of football .
My question is do clubs sometimes wait on the exchange rate to change before exchanging money as in today's market I assume it could be the diffence of thousands .


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 21:51:26
It could be a future penny pinching technique. Heard it here 1st.

2.) 27 Jun 2019 00:56:30
well if they wait they can either make few thousands or they may loose few thousands depending which way the exchange rate goes . Saying that I don't think many transfer fees are paid in one go, its a bit like a mortgage part of one or multiple credit agreements.

3.) 27 Jun 2019 03:14:14
Most businesses look to hedge against rate fluctuations rather than speculate based on expected changes. The only exceptions would be banks that do this as a living.

4.) 27 Jun 2019 06:06:50
Ed02 do clubs keep a certain amount in Euros in a bank account (say) as a hedge or do they not bother due to the effect on cash flow for example?

{Ed002's Note - It varies.}

5.) 27 Jun 2019 20:01:52
They will hedge against currency movements separately to the timing of a transfer. General business for big multi currency organisations.



19 Jun 2019 10:32:01
Hi Ed's

Just wondering if the wage structure at Liverpool is deciding on who we sign as it's a business and the need to make a profit is a must. I think what I'm trying to say is we have so many 1st teamers on big wages to sign another star isn't just the signing on fee plus tax plus agent fees as yous have explained previous is it a case with us now that we need to shift a few high earners to sign another star on high wages



{Ed002's Note - No. FFP for wages are an issue for all clubs but right now it does not determine which players the club buys.}

1.) 19 Jun 2019 14:07:22
ed002 after letting sturridge and moreno leave we must be in a better place on wages. Do you see that money going on new player wages or the likes of trent and robbo getting new contracts back in January.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how clubs work, you need to step away from those thoughts. Sounds like kids with birthday money.}

2.) 19 Jun 2019 19:47:32
Grino, club finances are not based on using a calculator to add up the fees for the players who have left and then determine how much you can buy for. Same with wages. Each transfer in and out are treated seperately.

The fact that Barcelona want to sell Coutinho and still owe LFC majority of his fee, maybe some do not realise that it is not just about plus and minus.

If Coutinho leaves then Barcelona will still pay as per the transfer contract. So if the contract agreed between Barcelona and Liverpool for the fee of Coutinho states for instance that his fee needs to be settled by X date then Barcelona will only pay the final amount of Coutinho's fee by X date.

So no, if you sell a player for a mega amount of money then it does not mean you get that mega amount of money in one go which meach means that you cannot go buy another player for the same amount as first of all, Coutinho's fees will only be settled until the last payment agreed between Barcelona an Liverpool which may be over let's say 3 seasons.

Barca only paid up the fees for Suarez to Liverpool last season if I am not mistaken.

So the next time you see a Liverpool player leaving for mega amounts of money, forget about the finances.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 08:01:53
Basically, fees are generally paid over the length of the contract but it is no doubt much more complicated than that and something not worth delving into.



01 Apr 2019 21:18:48
What does ed001 think about the summer will their be a lot of investment or will it be a couple of signings and in what position do you think is most needed?


{Ed001's Note - a lot depends on who goes. Full-backs are the priority, we are going to need one for each side. A back up keeper. Then midfield replacement for Milner, if he goes. Other than that, we need someone who can cover the wide positions up top and really push the three forwards.

I expect a fair bit of investment but probably not the huge sums spent last summer.}

1.) 01 Apr 2019 21:45:04
Brilliant Ed
as mentioned do you expect to see TAA move to midfield and do you see moving bobby back as an AM with a traditional cf up front an option as I think that’s his most natural position.

{Ed001's Note - I think Trent will have to stay at right back, as we do not have many options there and Gomez is too good a centre back to keep shifting him out there. Probably another season, at least, before Trent's role can be looked at, depending on if he can develop the defensive side or not.

As for Firmino, he has shown himself to be far better further forward, so why move him back again?}

2.) 01 Apr 2019 22:04:52
I’d like to see him in that position with someone ahead of him as I think he would have more of the ball and more influence . Just a thought although I do agree he has grown as a player in the role he’s in . Either way I think he’s quality and could play anywhere . Thanks for the replies let’s hope we can get over the line and go into the summer as league champions . c'mon the REDMEN.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 23:30:53
Why do people think that Firmino should be an AM or #10 when he plays best for us, and we play better as a team, when he starts up top and goes roaming from there?

4.) 02 Apr 2019 01:24:46
Do you think Matip will stay Ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

5.) 02 Apr 2019 05:30:39
Hi ed001

Would you prefer 1 full back who is able to play both left and right back and then use the academy and the versatile players in our squad if need be? Feels like a waste of a wage to sign both unless we bring in cover for both unless of course we bring in 2 solid fullbacks to rotate with TAA and Robertson. I admit the amount of running the modern fullback makes would actually make this viable but then again good fullbacks are hard to find and teams just end up going with wingers who can defend a bit.

{Ed001's Note - good question, and yes that would probably work out better. We defo need cover for both players, though it would need to be someone actually good enough to offer them competition, not a back up.}

6.) 02 Apr 2019 05:41:31
Morning Ed, just out of curiosity, if let's say money wasn't an option, who would you personally have come in to cover the wide positions? the only reason I ask is right now (maybe because I'm half awake) I can't think of one off the top of my head. Or not one I'd be REALLY excited about anyway, be interested to know who you'd have in mate.

If I had to chose someone it'd be Asensio for me but I haven't seen him play this season once so I have no idea how he is doing.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't touch Asensio, never seen the fuss about him, he is a headless chicken. We missed out on Pulisic but I think Brandt would be as good an option as the American.}

7.) 02 Apr 2019 05:55:05
Shows how awake I am, I didn't even think about Brandt lol he would indeed be a great option. Thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there are a few others about if I sat and thought as well, but Brandt is all that comes to my mind.}

8.) 02 Apr 2019 06:01:48
Thanks a lot Ed001

Do the club have an idea on Brewster, Hoever, Lewis, Wilson and Jones' roles for next season? Will they be given a chance to win a place in next season's squad during pre-season? I hope they are able to get Premier League loan moves if they do go on loan as this would give us a better idea of where they are instead of the lower leagues but it might be too early for some.

{Ed001's Note - it is not fully clear yet. Usually the decision comes down to transfers, what loan offers are on the table and how they get on in pre-season. Brewster is expected to be in and around the first-team squad. Hoever is most likely going to go on loan. While Wilson is most likely to get his shot in pre-season. Not sure on the other two at all sorry.

At these ages it is really difficult to plan ahead, which is where so many clubs go wrong. They set up a plan and stick to it, not taking into account the players themselves and the changes they undergo physically and emotionally as they grow up. You only have to look at someone like Gerrard, who was set to make his first team debut a long time before he did, only to have a growth spurt which caused an injury setback as his body adjusted. So nothing can really be fully set in stone, no matter how much clubs try to do so.

These are kids, they are immature and need a lot of work and guidance. To my mind clubs fail them by simply farming them out on loan constantly when they really need to be worked with internally by the best mentors and coaches. They need the carrot of a first team place dangling in front of them, while knowing that the club will support and back them if they have a few struggles along the way.}

9.) 02 Apr 2019 06:40:23
Thanks a lot Ed001

It is true that a lot of young players don't realise that talent isn't enough. So many talented players not realising their potential.

Managers are also a lot more cautious to throw in a teenager. Sterling being a premier league regular at 17 seems so long ago. Gomez at 18 (before inury) and Trent at 18 have followed (both at fullback) .

Hopefully the improvements in the academy and the incoming set up will help things and save the club millions in transfer fees.

{Ed001's Note - it will do if the club shows faith in them.}

10.) 02 Apr 2019 07:44:46
Or maybe a full back in the mould of arbeloa who can play both sides?

Def need strengthening on the left side.

11.) 02 Apr 2019 09:50:04
Max Aaron’s would be a great signing, he can play both sides and let him bed in for a year then move Trent to cm.

12.) 02 Apr 2019 09:56:27
Very good info thanks ed. Brandt would be my first choice. Brooks also appeals. Full backs I really have no idea, to find someone who can play both positions, attacked and defend to a high level might be impossible.

13.) 02 Apr 2019 10:16:54
I know Origi was a player Klopp was looking to offload but do you think he might reconsider as Origi has impressed wide left?
Also all's gone quite on Van Dijiks injury so any update.
Thanks for you time Eds.

{Ed001's Note - I have already pointed out that Origi has forced his way back in and is not likely to be sold now, unless he wants to go.

As for van Dijk's injury, it will be today we should get some news.}

14.) 02 Apr 2019 10:48:08
DHFC--I totally see your point about TAA, putting him in Midfield as its there he would get more influence on the game. I used to agree with this completely. However, with the way we play nowadays. the full backs are seeing a lot of the ball. It seems we rely on them for more creativity then the Midfielders. Would you say this is right Ed001? Its become a vital role for us now which may be why Klopp is looking to purchase one or two more.

Also Ed001, you briefly mentioned Milner leaving. Is there any update on this or should we not expect to hear anything until the season is up?

{Ed001's Note - getting into space and playing in a cross is hardly creativity mate. So no I disagree completely and any half decent full back should be capable of fulfilling the role. It is more about having the pace and fitness to get up and down the pitch.

How can I update you on Milner's personal choice whether or not to leave? I doubt even he could tell you what he will do yet.}

15.) 02 Apr 2019 10:50:48
Fingers crossed for Origi, I think he's got more to offer I really do. Sturridge is a different matter but Origi I think is capable of doing well in this team. Having said that, if he wanted to move on elsewhere I'd understand and wish him the best of luck.

16.) 02 Apr 2019 11:15:02
Thanks Ed001. I know how you all hate repeating yourselves as it's so time consuming. I've been on this site regularly but missed that somehow. Keep up the good work.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

17.) 02 Apr 2019 11:32:48
Need a creative mid for sure. We are lacking one for first team.

18.) 02 Apr 2019 11:51:09
Okay Ed, cheers.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I can't help on Millie, I would love to know, but it is one of those big decisions in life that he has. There are still a lot of things that can change it, anyway. I mean if Leeds come up, that would be a big pull to him to go back, but would he be so keen if they somehow let promotion slip through their fingers?

Also, would he be more or less keen to leave if we did win the title? There is an argument that can be made for both, but only he will actually know which is true.}

19.) 02 Apr 2019 12:17:47
No worries Ed001, don't expect you to know everything! Especially something as vague as that.

I agree with you about the league being a deciding factor. The same must be said of the Champions league I suppose. I believe that's the only trophy that has evaded him in his club career? Has a better chance of winning that with us than almost anyone else in England. As you said with the league, I'd imagine if we won the Champions league he'd be more keen to leave because there he'd have reached the absolute pinnacle of his club career. Or would he want to stay and push for more. He really does have a drive to keep going I feel. Works both ways as mentioned.

Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - good point on the Champions League, that would probably be a more personal thing to Milner thinking about it. I was thinking as a Liverpool fan it would be about the league, but for him it probably does make more difference.

You are very welcome cm.}

I would personally drive the lad their . I get the fact it’s hard to sign a replacement with such little time but surely their is an option outbtheir for us now unless klopp is being klopp again and quite clearly sees only certain players arriving . I felt the laziness crept in to his game towards the end
Of the season again . Hopefully if he stays he proves me wrong.


{Ed001's Note - actually at the end of the season he picked up his workrate after a dip midseason.}

I just don’t think wilson is good enough. He wasn’t even the best player at derby last year mason mount was far better . Yes he can hit a ball and scores some belters but his all round game looks laboured . Slow in thought and seems to slow play down . I wish the lad all the best but I think his future is away from Liverpool .

Lovren is a good player with very good attributes but concerns me he can’t play more than 6 games in a row to be more consistent we need less injury prone players .

Surely that’s where having a world class attacking coach at the club may bring more out of Wilson also he’d be playing with a lot better players hence he wouldn’t be man marked the way he has been for the last month or so.

After watching the window unfold it looks like it will be very busy the last week . I do expect some from Liverpool aswell but I think it will be cover and not the marquee player everyone craves every window . Ed001 how do you see it playing out?


{Ed001's Note - it should be very busy, just not for Liverpool unless someone leaves. The big issue to be remembered is that Europe's window doesn't shut when the English one does, so players could still leave the Prem after it shuts here.}

Im not overly worried about us in attack I feel the need is fullbacks the same area as the Eds have said we are targeting . The difference when Trent and robbo dont play is night and day . And if anything our attack when them 2 dont play drops aswell . So Id be worried if we never got adequate cover in that area rest of team I feel as if their is enough their .

I used to love the days of going to get the echo to see who we had signed now we are all guilty of needing to know everything yesterday . Although the information we get now especially on here has gave me such more appreciation for football as a game and business . Although kind of makes u not like players aswell when u hear the crazy demands . I’d love to swap jobs for a week see ho why would get on plastering . (Milner robbo&henderson would be ok ) IMO.
