Hey Eds, quick question if you follow the academy recruitment. There was a kid from WBA academy that the club was looking at I heard, it is where we got Yan Dhanda from. His name is Joshveer Shergill was the club interested in him as it looks he is going to sign with Leeds. Don't mean to throw out a random name, just heard a few things. Figured this site would be more reliable.


{Ed001's Note - it is very difficult to follow academy recruitment mate. So I don't keep an eye on it. Sorry.}

1.) 21 Jun 2018 15:35:41
Thanks Ed001 for responding back.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I couldn't help.}

Hello Eds,

What is the situation with Sturridge, obviously the club would like to offload him. Is it the price tag the club want or his wages? My assumption is the club would not replace him if he left either.


{Ed002's Note - if he were to leave he would need to be priced at a level where it would be acceptable and, critically, he would have to have realistic wage demands. I don’t see him going anywhere just for the money nor anywhere he doesn’t want to be. Injuries mean it will be hard for clubs to sign up for what might be a risk.}

1.) 18 Jun 2018 19:58:14
Both Sturridge and Markovic are in similar positions in that they are both on good wages and the club want to recoup a lot of the outlay on both. Both will need to reduce wages as well.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 03:14:14
I read the club had set their price for Studge at £15 mil. Thinking some club's would see him as a bargain at that price in the current market.

3.) 19 Jun 2018 05:24:01
i am very surprised with studgers injury management. he is just not able to keep fit. must be terribly frustrating for a player.
cant do much if you are not playing.

4.) 19 Jun 2018 07:28:10
Pretty sure Markovic is only on 35k, but Studge is on around 120k, both need to go though.

5.) 19 Jun 2018 09:31:49
$15 mil a bargain price? Th guy has played less than 50 games in 3 seasons including 5 min sub appearances. He’s on 100k a week at least. Just to get someone to take him off our hand at his wages will be a win.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 02:16:53
While DS was desperately unhappy and wanted to leave for some time.
He now wants to stay.
I don't Know why he changed his mind but that is an ITK fact.



07 Jan 2018 14:43:11
Hi Eds, one name that seems to have dropped out of the news is Dani Cebellos. I remember he wanted to move since he was not getting much playing time and Real Madrid were looking to move. Monaco have made it abundantly clear that there is no intention to sell Lemar this January. Is Cebellos still a viable option for us and if so would the signing of a creative midfielder this window end any pursuit of Lemar, Goretzka, and Meyer. I am sure others would have to move on since we already have a congested midfield. Cheers Eds.


{Ed002's Note - As I have explained there has been a discussion with his agent - but that is it.}

1.) 07 Jan 2018 16:55:12
But I swear some fans are more interested in who we sign rather than how we play or the results
I couldn’t care less if we didn’t sign anyone else this window as long as we win .
It’s a team game the loss of 1 of the team is a blow especially how good he was ( on his day )
But it’s a team game and I hope someone else steps in and does a great job and a 100% committed job to boot

Come on the reds.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 17:06:39
DHFC like everyone I am curious to know who we sign. In all honesty I am not heart broken over Coutinho leaving, the player did not want to be there so I am glad he is gone. The antics of back aches and so forth are damaging to the locker room and team. If I was someone who is on the bench it would unsettle me that there is this guy starting who does not want to be here.

Coutinho is great talent and it would be foolish for me to say we could do way better. There were aspects of his game I did not like, such as when he lost the ball he would immediately give up and not chase back. He would hog the ball and not pass when he should, he scored some crackers for the club. However he was always taking those far out shots instead of keeping possession and building up. Not blasting the player becaus he is gone, he was a great player for the club and as far I am concerned anyone who put the kit on and gave all for the club deserves the respect of the supporters. We have to just start understanding it is the way the game works and there are not many one club players anymore.

Players come and players go, but the bird is always here.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 17:18:59
“Players come and players go, but the bird is always here. ”

Sounds like my wife.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 17:27:41
Couldn’t agree more HARRY
He will be missed creatively and his goals and assist will be missed but it’s time those on the bench who are unhappy at game time stepped up showed us fans why their at such a great club like ours . Also agree on when possession broke down coutinho offered nothing at all maybe this will help the midfield out now he’s gone .
I too keep an eye on this page as I like knowing the targets I like to watch certain players that the eds have mentioned only to see what I think of them but as long as the team win I couldn’t care less who scores or how many .

5.) 07 Jan 2018 17:58:44
Agreed DHFC, Leicester is an example of players who want to be there and give all for the club. I feel that Mahrez was the leader of the discontent in the locker room and you saw what it did to the team.

Scoring goals was not our issue, keeping them out was. VVD is here and already shown he is solid player in the back. You saw him taking leadership, providing Karius with instruction and giving Matip confidence to playing higher up in defense. I would rather they pocket the money till the summer than make a desperation buy like Balotelli or Carroll.



13 Jul 2017 18:16:52
Hi Eds, are their any striker targets outs there. Obviously someone would have to leave in order for someone to come in. Who are the clubs options and who have they been scouting. Recently Klopp said Solanke is a long term project, which does not mean much if he plays well he plays well.


{Ed002's Note - Of the strikers that Liverpool were known to have looked at leading up to the summer the vast majority have signed new contracts, moved elsewhere or decided to stay where they are except Luan - and right now it is another side who are attempting to get an offer accepted.}

1.) 13 Jul 2017 19:11:09
Solanke, Sturridge, Firmino, Origi and Ings. It is highly unlikely that we are looking to add to the striker department at this point. What people seem to forget is that we play with a front three. Place for one striker. Mane and Salah will not be occupying the bench.

Along with that, Klopp did make it clear that replacing Sturridge is going to cost an awful amount of money. Injuries aside, are there any strikers available without blowing an obscene amount as good as Sturridge?

2.) 13 Jul 2017 18:48:21
Hi Ed002, in the shark pod you mentioned Azmoun, Dembele, Marega and Andre Silva. I would guess Azmoun and Dembele are completely out of the question now, but did we ever follow up anything on Marega or Silva? Silva in particular would be great in my opinion as he can play anywhere across a front 3. After the sharkopod though, they haven't been mentioned since.

{Ed002's Note - Andre Silva has moved elsewhere. MM has extended his contract on loan for another year.}

3.) 13 Jul 2017 18:52:46
Luan is class, finger crossed we can scoop in. Won't hold my breath, thanks Ed002 for the quick response. Scary seeing all of our rivals strengthening, hopefully we don't get left behind.

4.) 13 Jul 2017 19:10:07
We were 4th top scorers in the league without a 20 a season scorer and the teams that did have one were not far ahead. As much as I'd like an Aubemeyang or Lacazette would that really have made much difference when the real problem was defence and a soft centre in midfield at times.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 19:35:16
Agree with Max on this one.

We'd all love a world class striker but it just isn't a priority and it costs a fortune to buy the calibre of proven striker we are talking about here.

The value isn't there for that type of proven player this window. Case in point Lukakus recent mega bucks move.

That's the type of money we'd have to pay and if we're al honest that money needs to be spent on the defence.

6.) 13 Jul 2017 19:42:15
maxlfc, agree 110% with you. Solanke is a good addition, Ed002 has spoken very highly of his ability and from what I've seen he's got confidence to go with that.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 19:54:45
I'd like to see Sturridge kept and started against teams that pack it in next season. Basically have two different systems, one with a high press with Firmino leading the line, and another with Sturridge leading the line when a potent finisher is needed more due to a dearth of chances.

8.) 13 Jul 2017 19:50:28
I personally think Sturridge is our best finisher by a mile. It's just frustrating that because of the type of player he is He's more prone to injury. What's your opinion on the striking options Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Please read the posts.}

9.) 13 Jul 2017 20:44:08
In a front 3 it's firmino isn't it. DS wasnt injured for the whole of last season but he couldn't get in front of Bobby OR origi. He's (DS) an amazing player, we saw that in 442 formation at end of season but hd doesn't fit with klopps style of football. Luan does imo he can make goals as well as finish them. Works hard for team mates. Thing is do we risk unsettling sturridge and trying to sell him when we don't know if A, we can get the price we want for him and B, we don't know if we can sign luan. Have always thought luan rumour had meat on the bone and I won't be surprised if we sell sturridge this summer. I will be sad though.

10.) 13 Jul 2017 22:27:51
Jansens it depends on what you want. To just tweak one or two bits at the back and hope to scrape success or try to improve either end, with more chances being created by the players in the middle, and have a real shot at top place. The league isn't decided by how many you score or concede if you don't win enough games and that was a problem at both ends, conceding against weaker sides and failing to score against them.

11.) 13 Jul 2017 23:50:12
Don't need another striker mate! Well stocked there! A CM, LB and CB.

12.) 14 Jul 2017 00:53:10
Having a 20+ a season goal scorer is a nice option to have, I'd rather have goals from all over the park if I had to choose between the two. Don't get me wrong though to have both would be great.

13.) 14 Jul 2017 00:59:46
Salah can play as a striker. In fact, most of his goals come from him reading where the ball will fall when other players take shots. He's an excellent poacher and lightening quick. I'd rather see him as the striker and Bobby and Mane buzzing around him. Both decent goalscorers themselves.

14.) 14 Jul 2017 01:07:13
Luan won't be signed and DS won't be sold. I'm not in the know in any way but no efforts have been made there so it's not hard to deduct that a striker won't be added. The rest of the month will go by very quickly and we seem to be going for a CM, LB and CB. Stop daydreaming about a striker. we got enough as it is and some exciting youngsters.



23 Jun 2017 16:58:24
Hi Eds, has there been any advances in negotiations with Monaco regarding Mendy. I know a while ago one of you said there was very preliminary talks being held. Who are our LB options and is Mendy our first choice. Cheers Eds.


{Ed002's Note - No more than an enquiry.}

1.) 23 Jun 2017 21:22:37
Not true a offer was on the table and we spoke to the player and offered him 40% of his wage.

Hey Eds,

Just strictly based on the current squad as is without going into if "X" leaves, are there any positions the club is looking to strengthen. Are there players that still might come in? Thanks in advance Eds!


{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 15 Jul 2018 00:02:23
GK, Am winger now done with shaqiri.

I think if anything special comes up we might be interested.



26 Jun 2018 15:23:17
Hi Eds,

With Origi and Sturridge not apart of the first team plans and now Ings wanting to leave. If all three leave will the club bring in another striker, or will the club operate with Firmino and Solanke as the primary strikers. Salah and Mane can cover, but do you think they would want an all out striker.


{Ed002's Note - Origi not part? Move Brewster on? Right now if Ings leaves there is no change to the numbers from last season.}

1.) 26 Jun 2018 16:06:47
Ideally (IMO), Sturridge to be sold and Origi or Solanke to go on loan. Firmino, Brewster and Origi/ Solanke for next season.
And Brandt if the Fekir deal doesn't get done. (I wish)

2.) 26 Jun 2018 16:11:25
Origi has returned and Brewster is likely to get some chances.

3.) 26 Jun 2018 16:19:12
I think having Firmino as our main man, with two youngsters fighting for gametime in Solanke and Brewster, could be all we need for now. Plus Salah and Mane could perform in that role efficiently if required. As could Fekir if we were to sign him.

4.) 26 Jun 2018 16:49:51
If Firmino got injured and we had a big game at Old Trafford would people be happy with solanke and brewster? It's a tough one, I really like solanke but not sure if he is ready to lead the line yet. I can't really comment on brewster.

If origi, sturridge and ings leave we will undoubtedly sign a striker. Even if just sturridge and ings leave I feel we would sign a striker.

5.) 26 Jun 2018 17:00:29
We certainly need NO new strikers.


We would be perfectly fine with two of above, and one is definitely Brewster. I’d expect as it is now Ings, Sturridge to definitely leave and I’d say Solanke will be loaned so only leaves a question mark over Origi. Must admit I wish we had him on bench for CL final so we had more options on the day.

6.) 26 Jun 2018 16:56:30
Has anyone seen brewster live, is he as good as his you tube clips suggest he is?

If he is i say don't block his path and let him develop much like we did with taa. That boy is as good as owen was at his age and has the potential to be world class.



28 May 2018 18:02:51
Hey Eds do players being away on international duty make it tough for clubs to complete deals. Something that a simple flight to their location could easily wrap up. Ayre flew out to Brazil when we signed Firmino while he was out on international duty with Brazil. Seems like everyone has these hopes we wrap up deals before players leave for Russia, but we should not worry too much if the Macca list players head to Russia without being signed, right? Cheers Eds.


{Ed001's Note - it makes little difference. In a lot of respects it is easier as most are in the same place.}

1.) 28 May 2018 18:38:41
Cheers, that is what I figured. You could wrap up a few deals at one time.



08 Jan 2018 14:39:22
Hey Ed02, I must have missed the post for you loss, but my condolences not the greatest way to start the new year. Thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.


{Ed002's Note - It is Ed001 Harry but he will appreciate the thoughts.}



04 Jan 2018 17:31:48
Hey Eds, Happy New Year's to you all. I searched the site, but could not find the answer I was looking for. I keep hearing all this talk about Lemar, but a while ago Dani Cebellos who was looking to actively leave Real Madrid and the club looking to move him on. IMO he seems the more likely to join in January since he is available compared to Lemar who Monaco is not looking to sell in January as the replacements are hard to find. If the club was to secure the services of Cebellos would that end all interest in Lemar or would Lemar still be an option in the summer? Thanks Eds, as always appreciate all the hard work.


{Ed002's Note - Try spelling his name correctly and search again.}

If Fekir and Remy did not pass physicals or there were concerns about their health, there is no way he would pass one either. About 2 years ago he nearly had to give up playing because of a health condition.

Here is a new one,

The hold up in the Fekir move seems to one related to financial planning. After benefitting hugely from the sales of Lacazette and Tolisso last summer, Lyon want Fekir's sale to be included in their 2018/ 19 figures and so are holding out until at least Saturday.

Winning and trophies are great, but what makes separate than all the other clubs in England even Europe is our culture as fans. If a genie popped up right now and said you could 7 trophies over the next 10 years, but it will be because of some billionaire who came in a bought you all the trophies. You could win 2 trophies in 10 years based on building a team, I would prefer the latter. Our culture is what defines us and separates us from the others.

We have a song that teaches is to standby our players and club no matter what. Would any of you trade Istanbul for another title.
