Ed's. Do you know of Klopp bringing in a new goalkeeping coach for next season?
As much as Mignolet is not the best keeper. Do you think the coaching plays a part in his form?


{Ed001's Note - I have believed the goalie coaching has been an issue since we lost Valero. We 100% need a new coach, though Achteberg is a great bloke, he is not a great, or even good, coach. I expected him to be the first replaced, but he seems to have slotted in with the rest, so I would not hold my breath on him being replaced.}

1.) 17 May 2016 11:12:56
Thanks for the reply ed.
I think all of us jointly share the shock that he is yet to be replaced.
Do you think it's a matter of Klopp having someone in mind and them not being available yet?

{Ed001's Note - no.}

2.) 17 May 2016 12:19:35
Lets not forget klopp was perfectly happy with weidenfeller who himself is not a good keeper.

3.) 17 May 2016 13:26:20
Who's the bayern goal keeping coach .?!

{Ed001's Note - Toni Tapalovic.}

4.) 17 May 2016 14:43:19
Lfcfan_03beef, Weidenfeller is a good GK, not a great GK but he's certainly better than most.

5.) 17 May 2016 17:41:23
Ed's I don't know if you have heard or seen the links with Chelsea's goalkeeping coach being approached. I saw that somewhere yesterday. can't think of his name now. Petr Cech has talked him up previously about how much he improved his game.

{Ed002's Note - Christophe Lollichon. I am not aware of Liverpool approaching him. It would obviously be an issue if they have made a direct approach.}

6.) 18 May 2016 05:56:31
Sorry Rd002, I meant to write Lollichon was mentioned in the link, not approached. Obviously I take most links with a grain of salt, just thought i'd mention what I saw as goalkeeping coaches were being spoken about.



11 Feb 2016 16:55:33
Hi Eds. Out of interest with all of the free transfer players which are/ will be available who do you think would be good for us to sign up?


{Ed001's Note - none, we need to get rid of players.}

1.) 11 Feb 2016 17:36:05
Even after the clear out which will most probably happen there is no-one you could see us trying to sign?
Rumours of Joel Matip keep coming up. Not a player to your liking Ed?

{Ed001's Note - never seen him play so how could I want us to sign him?}



20 Jan 2016 14:30:20
Any news on Matip and him signing on with us?
Tried the search engine and no new news.


{Ed002's Note - There is no decision just yet.}



15 May 2015 18:04:59
Just read a post that Kevin prince Boatang is a free agent. Would Liverpool hold any interest in him?
We can all dream of superstar signings but realistically we have to look beneath that, with the powers and money of the top four and the lure of Champions league football I'm thinking he could be a possible signing??


{Ed001's Note - no, he was booted for being a total knob, there will be very few clubs willing to take a chance on him.}

1.) 15 May 2015 21:40:20
Thank you Ed. much appreciat the response

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, he is nothing but trouble, about as fit to play as my nan on her zimmer, except she smokes less.}

2.) 16 May 2015 03:51:37
Have to agree with you Ed, KPB would be Balotelli Mk. 2 except even worse. My friend (who's a Milan fan) told me that Boateng once got injured because he was having too much "fun" with his girlfriend! That's really all I need to know about him.

3.) 16 May 2015 22:49:37
Ed 001 - I refer you to your first comment, namely we are probably one of those clubs. Balotelli being the obvious latest example



05 May 2015 09:35:57
Have we been looking at Micah Richards this season, with Glen Johnson leaving and Manquillo not looking good enough. Richards being on a free would seem a possible signing?


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 05 May 2015 10:30:43
Honestly don't get the chat with Richards . He's too cumbersome . Can't get a sniff over there and with city . Not great at all . Turns like a bus

17 Oct 2017 08:08:19
I was wondering, would it be possible for the fans of LFC to make a donation pot and raise x amount of millions and give it to the club for use to a transfer?
Not saying it would ever happen. Just wondering if it could.


1.) 17 Oct 2017 09:30:07
There is no shortage of money. £50 mill for Kieta, £40 mill for AOC. £40 mill for Salah. Turned down a potential £100 mill for Coutinho! You could thank Sky for pumping abundance of cash into the game!

2.) 17 Oct 2017 09:47:11
It wasn’t a suggestion it was more of a query as to wethere there was restrictions.
I know there is money to spend with the £70m for VVD still available.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 09:49:50
OP. money is not and will NEVER be the issue as we have the money to buy who we think will help the team We were prepared to pay 150m for both Keita and VVD in the summer YET you want us to make a donation for transfers? Keep your money cos the club does not need it, clearly.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 09:50:41
I couldn't think of anything more embarrassing for the club or as a fan than the fans directly raising money for transfers.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 10:11:56
It happens every week when we shell out a ridiculous amount for a ticket! 😡
If the club was being run responsibly then you could have a conversation, but at the moment, my perception is we are not being run responsibly.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 10:12:33
Your missing op point he's not asking to raise £££ just if it's possible to raise £££ by the fans to purchase a player.

7.) 17 Oct 2017 10:16:47
If we was going to raise money, it'd be for either charities or to the eds for running the websites, which is something id love to see, but to the club, nah, they get enough money from us from ticket sales alone never mind everything else.

8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:14:35
I don’t think it’s allowed, I’m sure I it read on here years ago about someone wanting to put a few million in to buy a player but it wasn’t allowed, sure it was in rafas time.

9.) 17 Oct 2017 14:07:44
You got it Reusch.
I’m not asking anyone to put money into a pot.
I’m asking if it could be done.

10.) 17 Oct 2017 15:01:46
When i was in year 8 I would have given my liverpool piggy bank to get us David Villa.

11.) 17 Oct 2017 16:01:00
This has reminded me of United London FC. Fans don't quite help out with transfers but they do pick the starting line up each week through the website.

Imagine if Liverpool picked the line up from this site every week! Ward and Solanke would play every game and Klavan would probably have been put down.

{Ed001's Note - I know the guy who started that, Mark, nice fella and he has worked incredibly hard to get that working.}

12.) 17 Oct 2017 16:26:34
Such a good way for an amateur team to build a fanbase! Must be a smart chap.

13.) 17 Oct 2017 17:35:39
I think fans should get the chance to raise money to sign a particular player which the majority wants Lfc to sign. We can conduct a poll throughout the season and then raise money.

{Ed025's Note - i think supporters pay enough to be honest Eka what with tickets, merchandise, travel etc, the owners have plenty of money and they will be the ones making the money if the club gets sold so its a no from me mate..

14.) 17 Oct 2017 17:56:32
You're right Ed25, I was just thinking about the possibilities. Us fans have no right to decide what the club officials must do with the money they earn from ticket sales and etc but, If we raise money for a transfer. We can directly ask the club to sign the player our fans want.

{Ed002's Note - it has happened before but certainly won’t be happening at Liverpool. Fantasy stuff I am afraid.}



18 Jun 2017 09:52:00
One for the Ed's.

When we hear of agents and players meeting other teams to discuss transfers. Why is it sometimes they are held in hotels away from the city that they will be playing in?

For instance. Salah's agent was in London and supposedly talking over a deal with Liverpool. How comes these talks don't take place at Melwood or Anfield? Give the guys the home comfort feeling in negotiations.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool's offices are in London.}



11 Jun 2017 13:13:07
Solanke player of th tournament at the u20 World Cup
Well done lad.


1.) 11 Jun 2017 14:46:10
We should sign him up! ;)

2.) 11 Jun 2017 15:23:04
Maybe Ojo can have a word 😉.

3.) 11 Jun 2017 17:14:29
Probably already has.



08 Jun 2017 22:04:52
Hi Ed002
I know this is going to kick up a stink and I appreciate if you don't want to answer knowing it's going to attract abuse

Reading your comments from earlier, when did we start behaving illegally in our transfer dealings? I know Steven Gerrard made comments that he was tapping players up.
Has it got worse since Klopp has arrived or was we known to be bad before?
Any response is appreciated dude.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot give a date when it started.}

1.) 08 Jun 2017 23:38:19
Rafa describes his approach for Fernando Torres in his book and it reads very much like he contacted Torres to sound out his interest before contacting Athletico Madrid.

So at least since 2007.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 23:45:46
Fsg took over Oct 2010. Clint Dempsey problems Dec 2012. According to Gerrard's autobiog he approached Willian in 2013 and Kroos in 2014. Do we know of anything before 2010?
The issues certainly predate Klopp.

3.) 09 Jun 2017 00:49:49
Since the Premier League was created there have been 11 cases of tapping up (recognized by the FA or UEFA, and some not) . FIVE of them involve Liverpool. The first one was Christian Ziege in 2000. Followed by Gareth Barry and Robbie Keane in 2008. So it's hardly about FSG and Klopp. Obviously goes much deeper into the club's culture. (I'm no historian, just paraphrasing an article I read) .

4.) 09 Jun 2017 06:43:30
Cheers guys.
I can remember reading Robbie Fowlers book and he mentioned about Gary Mac phoning him and leaving a voicemail when he was trying to call Robbie Keane and persuade him to come to Liverpool (potentially to be a fowler replacement)



28 Apr 2017 16:53:45
Just want to put this out there.
Very much against the norm and I'm prepared for the barrage of abuse that will follow.
In Klopp I trust
I wish Henderson, our club captain a full and speedy recovery!
Danny Ings I cannot wait to see you perform under JK guidance.
Dejan Lovren. Congratulations on your new contract. (In Klopp I trust) and you of course
Good to read the news DS and AL are back in training.
Any associated person to Liverpool football club
You will never walk alone.


{Ed025's Note - lovren must think he has won the lottery gazza, the only reason he should be given a new contract is that when some mug of a team goes in for him that liverpool are not mugged off mate..

1.) 28 Apr 2017 17:10:24
No way you can condon lovrens new contract simply madness, I thought we were about to leave the years of mediocrity sadly I seemed to hope for too much.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 17:19:31
Maybe if fans got behind the players instead of asking them to be replaced every year would help us leave behind this mediocrity?

3.) 28 Apr 2017 17:44:58
Ya Steph let's get behind the players, the likes of Lovren who have continued to be utterly appalling but ya let's support him and accept that he's the best that we could buy. wake up.

{Ed025's Note - tell me about it sakho mate..

4.) 28 Apr 2017 18:11:03
How is moaning about it going to help the team or the player Sakho? That's my point! I agree with ed025 above, boo them, show your displeasure and disappointment when they play crap, but you have to support them if they are to progress!

5.) 28 Apr 2017 18:22:38
Renewing Lovren's contract isn't madness at all. His previous contract was set to expire in 2019, so a new deal would have to have been addressed at some point in the next 12 months, and it makes sense to do it sooner rather than later. No one wants to see him leave for free. I don't think he deserves a pay rise, but such is the way in football.

Klopp addressed all the reasons for the new deal in his press conference this morning, and I tend to agree with him.

Of course, there are better defenders out there - and I hope we sign one of them. A new contract doesn't guarantee his place in the team every week.

6.) 28 Apr 2017 18:45:04
At the end of the day its klopp's decision. Of corse moaning isn't going to change anything but people here are quick to blame players ed2 owners etc saying how our squad lacks quality when our manager is the one pulling the strings and happy rewarding mediocrity 100k per week.

Once Ron said "klopp have got blind spot for keepers" seems defenders too or maybe he needs some help as he always worked under DOF who was the one helping him when it came to recruitment contract etc.

7.) 28 Apr 2017 18:19:27
Another sarcastic reply, maybe if you made a valid point we could have a mature conversation but I've hoped for too much c'mon ed025.

{Ed025's Note - excuse me sakho but that was not sarcasm mate, i was actually agreeing with your post but make of that what you will..

8.) 28 Apr 2017 20:09:53
It's all very well saying get behind the team (and I do agree we should) but getting behind them doesn't turn a poor or average player into a good one! Sure they may have the odd good day but I don't see why we should keep pretending everything's fine and all the players are great. For all the people saying we criticise our players too much, I don't see any of their teams queuing up to take them off our hands. I know sometimes we may go over the top and be unfair in our comments, but we have to draw the line somewhere and part of my frustration is that we continue to hold on to mediocre players hoping they will one day take us to the level of the top tier teams. You simply cannot consistently win without quality (I didn't say spending lots of money) and there are some in our squad that are not quality. If you disagree let's see at the end of the season what type of teams make an offer for them.

9.) 28 Apr 2017 22:33:40
It's up to Klopp at the end of the day and spending money does not guarantee you quality.

10.) 29 Apr 2017 03:05:43
Maybe we might go out and sign a new centre back or Gomez might get his chance next season. But with Lovern getting a new contract it keeps him happy and it becomes harder for him to get an easy move away if he doesn't like being stuck on the bench or just being used for cups games.

11.) 29 Apr 2017 06:48:52
The whole just shut up and get behind the team that is how they will improve argument is massively oversimplistic. Some players are impacted by this kind of site, but that cuts both ways. Some may get disheartened (but then far more you will hear players who that happens to quoting the response they got at matches) . Some however may take the view they'll prove us wrong. A lot depends upon their character and whether this is just a job etc. Equally just blindly supporting without constructuve criticism creates the view the fan base will accept any pile of excrement for a performance. I agree there has to be a balance and what is said should be constructive but saying all is rosey in the garden isn't going to improve the players, the coaches or the idea of what the fans and the club expect from them. Saying all isn't well may not change things but it is more realistic against the club owners and manger's stated ambitions and ultimately they are the audience as much as the players.

12.) 29 Apr 2017 09:50:02
Razor, it is very possible to disagree with a player getting a new contract and still getting behind the team during games. Two things can be right at the same time.

Spot on, Ron. VVD for example, plays in a defensive system that has two DM's protecting him so he is rarely exposed. No one knows how he will fare here where that protection will not be as strong. As Ed01 says, quality CB's like, GK's, are hard to find and those clubs who have them are NOT going to sell to you so might as well groom and coach up the ones you have like Lovren and Gomez hoping they can step up. I am interested in seeing how Gomez does next season.

13.) 29 Apr 2017 10:02:54
Ron, I have to disagree with you there. Spending money has made huge differences to Chelsea, Manchester City and Utd. Before Abromavich when was the last time Chelsea won the league? City hadn't won a trophy for almost 45 years before the Arabs came in, and Utd had been the richest club in the league for years and still spend bigger than most teams. Also the additional cash being pumped into football by Sky and BT have made all clubs richer which is why the PL is such a difficult league now. Spending money might not guarantee you quality, but spending huge amounts usually does.

14.) 29 apr 2017 14:39:26
kbl, i agree. we have spent money too under fsg but in the wrong way and on the wrong players, overall. money may not guarantee you trophies but money spent stupidly will definitely guarantee you nothing.

15.) 30 Apr 2017 23:05:31
NRed I think you've misunderstood me, that's the point I was trying to make.

These linked players haven't even kicked a ball for us yet but a huge majority of posts are negative reads.
