Hey Eds, could you provide any insight of potential destination for the following players and if it will be a loan or sale.


Thanks Eds for the great work all summer long! Also did you Ed02 do another Sharkopod yet?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Napoli found the asking price too high, asked for a loan but Liverpool were not interested. There is an issue with wage demands as well. Will need to see what happens. (b) Asking price too high for a sale, loan an option but Liverpool would need a new contract signed first - looking for ne interest. (c) Olympiakos keen but not at the asking price - I would think maybe Turkey will provide an option but whatever happens the price needs to come down. (d) A loan to a Championship club (WBA, Aston Villa or Nottingham Forest) is most likely - any thought of a sale to Scotland is now waning.}

Not trying to get into money really, but how much can we really expect to get back on Markovic? At this point, any kind of offer has to be considered, right?

{Ed0333's Note - we won’t get a penny for him.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 22:45:22
I understand getting the best deal you can, but sometimes the best deal may be to let them go a little below worth, for the good of the player, to get some income and off the wage bill - especially ones like Markovic and mignolet, who are 3rd choice at best.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 23:52:13
Firmane I think we should trust the club to know what’s best and if they want the price they want there’s obviously a reason for that.
Don’t worry about the players they are being paid more than handsomely for what they do, or don’t do.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 07:46:42
Totally agree Bobby. Too often we have been dictated to by other clubs and by players who want away. I'm not saying be unrealistic with our fees but let's have fees in mind and stick to it. Let's remember these players are being paid well and understood the demands of the role upon entering the contract in the first place.

5.) 17 Aug 2018 00:47:07
It always confuses me that window after window our asking price seems too high for Markovic and others. Just get rid, we’re still going to be paying wages regardless of a loan I assume so let them go and try and resurrect their careers.



04 Aug 2018 22:08:48
Hey Eds, can you give an update on Grujic? According to Neil Warnock his loan move to Cardiff has been cancelled due to a contract dispute. According James Pearce he returned to Melwood from Evian, but figured he was there to wrap up a move.

Can you give an update on the following players on the outgoing:


Thanks Eds!


{Ed002's Note - Ings should leave if a deal can be struck. Right now the only option for Origi would be a loan. Asking price for Wijnaldum and Mignolet is too high. There has been no effort to sell Clyne.}

1.) 05 Aug 2018 01:21:43
Cheers Ed, let me know the next you are in Northern California, I'll buy you a few beers!

{Ed002's Note - Will do.}

2.) 05 Aug 2018 09:54:01
Think he's done his hamstring so I would think he'll go on loan to Cardiff. Although I think it's best we get 20 million for him and let him go to Lazio if that's still possible.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 10:56:33

I want whatever you are smoking, think so would outback owner.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 17:57:55
I’m in Thousand Oaks, just outside LA, if your free beer offer stretches this far, Harry! 😉.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 03:18:43
Fast Tino, the next time I am in So Cal I'll give you a buzz. If you come to NorCal it is on me!

6.) 06 Aug 2018 08:02:46
I wouldn't want to sell Windjalum. he's a versatile and effective CM. He gives us great depth.
Clyne can cover both flanks so think he will be kept.
Sturridge is looking sharp so he will stay I think.

Agree that Ings, Origi, Markovic, Mignolet and maybe also Klavan should be sold.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 12:10:54
Agreed with all that except Klavan. Our CBs are all very injury prone and we could really do without losing another if no replacement is coming in.



21 Jun 2018 05:13:56
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.}



18 Jun 2018 19:15:30
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.

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.}

I think it was last season or the season before. Klopp was on Skysports and he pretty much laid out the tactics of the team. With the amount of money being spent on analysis, they can easily break down the tactics of the opposition no problem. However being able to execute it is another issue in whole.

English clubs cannot register players after 5 pm on Thursday. However, other clubs can buy and register players until the 31st.

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.
