The papers are reporting that we now want to bid £40m for Oxlade Chamberlain. Hope it's just paper talk guff as we've trolled ourselves enough this transfer window already without wasting money like that.


1.) 10 Jun 2017 22:44:00
Of course it is.

2.) 10 Jun 2017 23:06:03
This would be the story of FSG and sum us right up if we end up buying Ox for 40 mill as our Main summer signing.

3.) 10 Jun 2017 23:14:50
Am I the only one hoping this is true? He's a decent player. I'm not sure he's worth 40m, but he'll very rarely let you down.

4.) 10 Jun 2017 23:19:44
I don't believe even Liverpool are stupid enough to spend that much on Ox.

5.) 10 Jun 2017 23:42:56
I don't get why everyone is getting wound up. The window closes in two and half months, there is plenty of time to get signings in. People are talking here as the window is closing tomorrow and no one has signed.

As a Liverpool supporter I would support them in the third division and do it with pride. Would sing "You'll Never Walk Alone" as proud and loud as I did the night of Istanbul.

Transfers don't happen at the pace the papers make it seem. The Eds can confirm a transfer can take months of negotiation and scouting prior to a bid being made. Stop following the papers and wait for something with concrete reputation to report it.

6.) 10 Jun 2017 23:43:50
I would love to see the Ox in a Liverpool shirt. Quality player mismanaged by Wenger. He would flourish under Klopp. I hope we get him.

7.) 10 Jun 2017 23:56:26
16 mil great buy. 40 not a chance.

8.) 11 Jun 2017 01:07:38
That's a rediculous fee for someone with 1 year left and doesn't play every game.

Would be a decent player for us I think though I don't really see where he fits in.

9.) 11 Jun 2017 02:07:56
20 million or under, fine.
If the price is higher, move on.

10.) 11 Jun 2017 03:19:55
I hope we get him too and I think we will. Along with vvd his name has been linked all year, those two above all others have been mentioned. Forty mil sounds a lot but so does nearly every high end deal these days. Last week Ed02, myself and others were saying we'd rather take a cheaper player that fit rather than a flashy signing for the sake of spending. The truth is ox would fit our team. Perfectly. He's English, he's young, and he's in the wrong team. He may not be cheap but I doubt it'd be as much as 40. I'd take ox over salah, for same price. He's tried and tested. Hope we get both and vvd.

11.) 11 Jun 2017 07:07:34
Jonny-Ox is tried and tested, and is a failure! and he fits our team because he's English and young? how does that work? For one we didn't have one young English regular last season and two, what's your age and nationality got to do with fitting into our team?

12.) 11 Jun 2017 07:12:40
As jackored said a year left on his contract so I can't see 40mil being the price.

Probably get him for half that if the interest is real.

13.) 11 Jun 2017 07:50:02
If they pay that its a new recruitment dept that's needed.

14.) 11 Jun 2017 07:50:25
Yeah he'd fit right in with sturiddge and Henderson on the treatment table where he would spend most of the season. Be a great buy. Exactly what we need another player made of paper to keep sturiddge company.

15.) 11 Jun 2017 07:51:00
We have enough issues with keeping our own squad fit and free from injury without paying £40m for a player who is prone to picking up injuries.

16.) 11 Jun 2017 08:24:50
But aren't we supposed to pay whatever the asking price is now? I thought all this haggling is a sign of how bad our recruitment team is. Surely refusing to pay over the odds is terrible business.

17.) 11 Jun 2017 08:25:20
Rather give Ojo a chance.

{Ed002's Note - I rather suspect Ojo will not be there next season.}

18.) 11 Jun 2017 08:32:01
Forget Ojo, he isn't good enough.

19.) 11 Jun 2017 08:53:47
Cobra if Ojo isn't good enough then Oxlade definitely isn't.

20.) 11 Jun 2017 08:53:03
Shame Ojo isn't being given a chance ed seens as he has genuine pace and is a LW, an area we need players in. Loan out likely then?

{Ed002's Note - I would think so.}

21.) 11 Jun 2017 09:06:50
I don't think people are solely upset over just this window that hasn't even opened yet. As they say there is no smoke without fire and since FSG came in it has been the same old story. After all we are the club who sold Luis and replaced him with Lambert, Balotelli and Markovic. And that was after securing CL football. I'd support LFC in any division either but it doesn't mean I am going to be happy and sit quietly whilst being taken for a mug.

22.) 11 Jun 2017 09:12:24
Frank- Ox isn't good enough, he is however better than Ojo.

23.) 11 Jun 2017 09:17:26
No way worth £40m with only a year left on his contract. £20m would be worth it I think . Could be a useful addition. But maybe it's just a way to get himself a decent renewel of his arsenal contract . Can't see it happening . maybe other areas of team need improving first. Cb, lb, dm, and another attacking player .

24.) 11 Jun 2017 09:18:19
If we do loan Ojo out, I hope it's done wisely and with a managee who will nurture him and play him, there's a lot of talent there.

{Ed002's Note - Newcastle are keen.}

25.) 11 Jun 2017 09:33:22
Not a bad option under Benitez.

26.) 11 Jun 2017 09:53:57
I'd rather he played regularly for Newcastle at this stage then sat on the bench watching our newly signed left winger play in his spot.

27.) 11 Jun 2017 09:43:04
What's klopps number? I need a word.

28.) 11 Jun 2017 15:34:14
No cobra, being young and english are bonuses. He would fit our high pressing game. He's quick both with feet and mind. An attacking player who knows how to get stuck in. Easy to forget he's only 23. Plenty of ucl experience. If u can't see how he fits then I can't help you.

29.) 11 Jun 2017 15:36:38
Ox is a failure! That's funny he scored for england yesterday!

30.) 11 Jun 2017 16:14:19
I get that it's at a different level, but Ojo completely changed the game when he came on for England u20s against Italy in the semi finals. They just couldn't cope with him.

Good luck to Ojo and Solanke today! Come on boys!




08 Jun 2017 17:31:09
Well done to Don Solanke again for firing a couple of goals against Italy. The boy is a real talent.




04 Sep 2016 19:53:08
Question for Ed002! What are your thoughts on the recent allegations made by Mark Halsey in respect of refs being asked to turn a blind eye to contraversial incidents? Do you think there's anything in it and what would this be as bad as the issues with match fixing that happened in Serie A all those years back (although Halsey didn't imply that this was match fixing, obviously) .


{Ed002's Note - I think he is over-egging it. I am aware of two occasions in Champions League games where there was a pre-briefing to the referees from another "official". I suspect the Halsey situation has something behind it but not quite the issue it is being suggested that it is. But it will be looked at.

1.) 04 Sep 2016 20:40:41
Cheers Ed. Storm in a teacup then Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Pelican in a cross-wind.}

2.) 04 Sep 2016 22:24:41
Pelicans can't fly in crosswinds due to the drag on their bills lol, certainly wouldn't fly in a straight line 😂.

3.) 05 Sep 2016 07:28:14
I am confused. I had the impression he was suggesting they were asked to say they hadn't seen something in order for it to receive the CORRECT post-match punishment? It is the opposite of match fixing -it is correctly punishing violent conduct irrespective of what the on referee interpreted at the time? Albeit a mischievous solution to an artificial problem.

The best was to avoid that would simply be to remove the rule that if a referee sees something it cannot be retrospectively punished. Instead have the "citing committee" function more like rugby. If there is violence / serious cheating it should be dealt with, whatever the referees "on-the-spot" interpretation was?

{Ed002's Note - The point is that the referees should be honest if they have seen something.}

4.) 05 Sep 2016 08:59:12
Yes, I agree that referees lying cannot be good for the game!

But it is a very artificial situation whereby you can't take action after a match if the referee had a view/ interpretation of it in a match (which turns out to be incorrect/ sub optimal)? Better to make the rule sensible, rather than asking referees to lie or allowing violent conduct to escape unpunished?

In the case in point, few would doubt Aguero had committed a punishable act? Better a rule that allows punishment irrespective of the referees view / non view / on the spot interpretation?

5.) 05 Sep 2016 11:13:55
My understanding that this is as Profg has said and is not about favouring one team or another. Football should definitely have a citation type rule. We have a lot to learn from Rugby in terms of player conduct.

6.) 05 Sep 2016 22:57:16
If a ref saw what happened and thinks it's a foul, he must penalize the incident, controversial or not. If they are being told to ignore them then that is wrong and hurts the integrity of the game and those doing this, should be flushed out of the game entirely, period.

{Ed002's Note - That is not being suggested.}



16 Jul 2016 10:36:26
I think we can presume that China is now not an option for Balotelli.


1.) 16 Jul 2016 18:00:25
Ed has said Sampdoria is interested and he is interested as well however, there's an issue that has to be resolved.



13 Jul 2016 19:55:28
Grujic looks a bit of a player.

I reckon an offer halfway between the two should be ok. He's not seen much first team action unlike Ings and hasn't been called up to a senior England squad. Chelsea are just chancing their arm. Which is fair enough as any reasonable team would do the same.

Duncan Castles is a Manc and a troll, I wouldn't take anything he says as serious as he has zero connection at Liverpool.

Better negative than a misogynist Barrmun?

Besides it's hardly like there's anything to be positive about given the weeks antics.

I guess the question is, are you happy with the way we have behaved this and that the fall back position of the club appears to be going players who simply aren't good enough to compete at the top level?

Forsberg is a quality player. Quick, skilful, hardworking and can take a dead ball. He won't be Joining is mind you.

I can't see it happening, we're not prepared to pay the fee and Roma have queried if we've made an illegal approach.

More importantly, who is Bozo Texino? (I have actually watched the film and it was really good. )
