Hi eds. Any interest in yerry mina from Barcelona? Seen a loan move being mooted?
I think it's just paper nonsense as it says they see him as a future star and want him to get some experience so why send him to a different league for that?


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest in taking a loanee from Barca.}

1.) 11 May 2018 18:53:09
Random name of the day.

2.) 11 May 2018 21:04:41
Cheers ed001 appreciate the reply mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

3.) 12 May 2018 09:07:03
Spanish media are quoting the player saying "I'm going to Liverpool" 😂 the summer window is absolutely ridiculous sometimes!

4.) 12 May 2018 10:13:00
Could be coming for a day trip mk and go to the Beatles museum.

5.) 12 May 2018 11:13:28
I heard him and Phil were going to get some pedilo’s out in Southport and have a couple of games of crazy golf, then they were going to the bier Keller to watch the champs league final and do shots every time there’s a corner.

6.) 13 May 2018 12:02:45
Seems like Barcelona bought him for 10 mill and because he can't get in their team they want to sell him to us for 88 mill.
Think they're still upset at how much they had to pay to get Couts.



25 Mar 2018 08:26:25
Hi eds. See Anderson talisca being mentioned now. Is it true he is being looked at and what type of player is he. Have to admit have only seen him in champions league a couple of times.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Liverpool interest in Talisca. The sustained interest is from Wolves but Benfica will not talk to them unless Besiktas refuse to take up their option on the player. My expectation is that Besiktas will take up their option, and if a very, very large offer arrived then they might consider selling him on immediately.}

1.) 25 Mar 2018 13:57:29
I saw rumours that United and Monaco were in for him (40mil apperently) .



31 Oct 2017 17:26:17
Latest keeper to be linked is keylor navas off real madrid. I have only seen him in a couple of champions league games and being honest wasn't paying him too much attention. Would he be a good addition if we are interested of course?


1.) 31 Oct 2017 18:40:52
Wud b completely the wrong keeper worse than bravo he not even 6ft we need a aggressive dominating presence who likes to give rollockings when needs be.

2.) 31 Oct 2017 19:09:25
Not to be petty hailstones but apparently Navas is 6’1” so you clearly don’t know what you are talking about.

3.) 31 Oct 2017 19:19:14
Haha ok I am wrong apologies but him coming from Spanish league to premiership and too us who teams target for set peices would cause him an us big probs.

4.) 31 Oct 2017 19:25:49
Like De gea 🤷🏻‍♂️.

5.) 31 Oct 2017 20:00:08
How long did it take for him to settle also he has better attributes taller better all round he is world class.

6.) 31 Oct 2017 20:16:23
Doesnt matter how tall the keeper is to be honest as long as they are agile.

7.) 31 Oct 2017 20:22:12
I guess that rules out Jan Oblak too then as he also plays in the Spanish league.

8.) 31 Oct 2017 21:45:54
Yeah, our last keeper from Spain who wasn’t tall was awful. Bloody Pepe Reina.

9.) 31 Oct 2017 22:41:54
I hate spanish keepers id much rather have rob green in goal for a world cup.

10.) 31 Oct 2017 23:38:02
Doesn't matter were they from as long as they have rite attributes aggressive commanding reading danger communicating with defence, decent kicking these are all things needed for a top keeper, navas is a good shot stopper and decent kicker.

11.) 01 Nov 2017 06:26:52
Or maybe Danny Ward could be given a chance before everyone starts playing football manager signings again.

12.) 01 Nov 2017 07:34:09
DetailsLocked - Exactly mate.

13.) 01 Nov 2017 08:45:14
AMEN too details locked i hope with regards too ward he gets sum sort of run in team so we can judge an see if he in fact could be everything we need there are a lot of British keepers at minute who are doing great e. g Rob Elliot, Tom heaton, jack butland, Jordan Pickford, Fraser Forster, so why not ward!

14.) 01 Nov 2017 15:09:48
Navas is a poor keeper at best, he’s only just over 6ft (1.85m is not 6’1”) and for me, he is too short to be successful in the premier league, given that we struggle on crosses and high balls into the box, the last thing you do is buy a keeper that is easily dominated in those situations and Navas is weak in that area, look at how Bravo has struggled and how poor Pickford is on crosses, we don’t need another keeper who can’t deal with that. If we are bringing a keeper in, bring a top class one like Oblak or don’t bother. We’ve done enough bargain basement shopping in that area for a lifetime.

15.) 01 Nov 2017 22:22:57
Defo agree see him tonight he would give us all a heart attack.

16.) 02 Nov 2017 06:34:51
JC23 that is true to some extent but not totally. Watch someone like James Shea. Very agile keeper but probably about 5'11 tops and he struggles with crosses because of lack of reach and size. League 1 and 2 players are generally smaller these days than the big prem players so he would struggle at prem level. If he was 6'3 or more I reckon Arsenal would have kept hold of him. height does unfortunately make a difference. A tallish keeper 6'2 who is agile can compete but below that they are struggling in a league where the first thing the clubs look for is size and they like to bang in crosses all the time. Plus for Liverpool size in GK is now a must since teams are targetting crosses into the box as a weakness.

17.) 03 Nov 2017 00:20:58
I agree with that DetailsLocked. Any keeper under 6’1” is going to struggle unless they have the physique and ability to make up for it. Someone mentioned Pepe Reina, he’s 6’2” which is the minimum for me. Since he was tall enough to compete, also helped that he was quite a physically strong player to go with it and made good decisions almost ever time.

18.) 03 Nov 2017 08:22:47
Migs 6'4"
Karius 6'2"
Ward 6'4"
Wards height Changes depending on site.



12 Oct 2017 18:29:36
Is thomas lemar still seen as an option or was he ever truly an option? Reason I'm asking is if we are going for the likes of a lemar it would surely put to bed a new striker coming in as I doubt we would spend however much on lemar and a striker to leave one sitting on the bench. Lemar would be seen as a replacement for coutinho I would imagine. Gk and CBS are priorities. I know klopp has said Marius is his no1 and now mignolet is no1 but surely he can't be that naive to think either is good enough. Mignolet was at his level at Sunderland and karius while I admit didn't get a proper crack of the whip still doesn't fill me with confidence. Least I say about the cbs the better. Think Gomez should be giving a go. Surely he can't do worse than what's already going on at the back. Anyway enough moaning I'm going 2-0 Liverpool on Saturday . let's put mourinho back in his box.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool were one of many clubs that showed various levels of interest in Lemar but he was not going to be joining Liverpool this past summer. Next summer Liverpool May elect to considering him as a replacement for Coutinho.}

1.) 12 Oct 2017 21:29:31
Cheers ed002. Appreciate the reply.

2.) 13 Oct 2017 12:52:16
Ed002 now that your about would I be right in thinking that Couthino unless he has a massive change of heart he'll be off in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - he still wants out I understands. Liverpool can block a move.}

3.) 13 Oct 2017 15:52:57
Thanks for the reply Ed. It's gone on a bit now just get a much for him as we can and move him on I say.

{Ed002's Note - I think thoughts will turn to him leaving next summer.}

4.) 13 Oct 2017 17:49:57
My feelings exactly Ed thank's a million.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 15:58:25
Lemars preference for arsenal is due to their consistent appearance in the CL, he would prefer Liverpool if we can stay in the CL and retain a place. No move will be made unless Coutinho goes, that's unlikely until the summer even though we were told it's now or never, Barcelona are quickly realising their position of power is fading, dembele out long term, they have to show massive support politically to the Catalonian cause, a lot of Spanish players aren't quite fancying them anymore. Interesting times ahead for Barcelona, not particularly positive either.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 08:52:21
Jbleftpeg not entirely sure what anyone could disagree with there. Arsenal had 20 years of ECL so better bet still than us.

7.) 19 Oct 2017 00:33:49
I heard Lemar was open for a move to LFC, but they never bid anything close to what Monaco wanted.

I know it's a bit of a what if but long term of klopp sees out his contract (hopefully stays for as long as he wants) and pep linjders stays by his side. Could he possibly be a successor to klopp in the future. I'm delighted he is back by the way. Really rate him.




28 May 2018 22:28:05
Big shout out to Michael Edwards for getting this deal so quickly done. Nobody seen this coming even the eds (way it should be) Edwards was getting bashed for not having any real football knowledge or contacts in the game. 43 million if price quoted is to be believed shows smart business can be and has been done. Keep them coming.


1.) 28 May 2018 22:38:21
It's going well so far isn't it mate. Keita I know for a fact is an incredible addition because I've watched him time and time again for 2 seasons, the lad is the real deal. Fabinho, I honestly haven't seen much of the lad but by the sound of things, he is a great addition. Who's next! Fekir? I doubt it but we shall see. Fingers crossed.

2.) 28 May 2018 22:40:59
FBBCreporting only 39 million.

3.) 28 May 2018 22:50:56
Salah - You're beginning to show the worrying strains and influence of the "negative one" and the "un-named one", with your doubts on getting Fekir 😉. Pull yourself out of it, Man! Believe!

4.) 28 May 2018 23:10:38
Salah is his own man and from the little I know about him a very decent chap.

5.) 28 May 2018 23:13:43
Oh man, true ArAy, maybe I'm becoming Walter 2. This is concerning! I'll start to believe mate ;) lol.

6.) 28 May 2018 23:20:27
I meant no offence by that by the way Walter mate, just messing about :) . And thank you.

7.) 29 May 2018 00:24:51
Walter. Chill. In the end, we are ALL just messing about on these pages. 😉.

8.) 29 May 2018 08:36:52
All cool over here. I woke up in a negative mood so all is good with me. I've been enjoying the posts this morning.



26 Mar 2018 18:50:23
Hi eds. Great news coming that the anfield road end is the next stand that is being looked at to expand anfield beyond 60000. With demand for tickets so high and a season ticket waiting list longer than the nile my question is the kenny dalgdish stand being looked at into as expanding further down the line.2 I know the problems with the kop would be more tricky regarding the main road outside but could this problem also be solved further down the line and 3. What capacity do you think we would be comfortable selling out every week. The jump to 54k doesn't seem to be a problem and I think the same if we go to 60/ 61k.


{Ed025's Note - if they threaten the residents like they did for the last expansion im sure the obstacles can be overcome IR..

1.) 26 Mar 2018 20:28:45
Cheers ed025. Appreciate the reply mate.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 26 Mar 2018 22:27:20
I think if we got to 70 it would be a hell of a lot easier, Utd got to 75 and pretty much wiped out their season ticket waiting list, although they have 80/ 90% season tickets whereas we are less than half I think and I’d say our support is comparable with Utd, maybe a little less?
I also think the demand is high because we are playing such exiting stuff at the moment.

3.) 26 Mar 2018 23:02:31
Wasn’t there a capacity limit, Because of the transport facilities or something?

4.) 26 Mar 2018 23:31:27
Anfield Road end will be the final stage of Anfield redevelopment taking capacity to 60000-61000.
Liverpool we're turning away 20,000 ticket requests before the Main Stand was done so will still comfortably sell out each week.



28 Feb 2018 15:54:30
Hi ed001. What is your opinion of piotr zielinski? Seen him jorginho have both been linked in the last few days (for once let's hope the paper trash is true) . Seen you say you think jorginho would be an excellent signing. With Keita also coming in to you think Keita jorginho and zielinski would work hypothetically as a 3? I think it is a 3 to get excited about as well as having hendo, ox, wini, lallana to also come in.


{Ed001's Note - I have not seen a lot of Zielinski, we had interest in him a few windows back, so I tried to watch him but he was never playing in games I watched. What I have seen he looks like a Klopp-type of player but I don't know enough to really judge him.}

1.) 28 Feb 2018 16:17:46
Cheers ed001.looks a handy player the few times I have seen him myself. As you said looks a klopp type player, probably cost a fortune but if klopp wants him fsg will back him.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen him since he joined Napoli, but any player that fits their system should fit ours well. They try and play a similar game to ours.}

2.) 28 Feb 2018 16:22:37
Is there genuine interest in him Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - Klopp likes him, he wanted him at Udinese (I think it was them he was at before) and has never dropped interest. I do not expect him to be bought this summer though, Napoli are not looking to weaken their team but to strengthen it.}

3.) 28 Feb 2018 16:51:50
I have never seen Zielinski play for Napoli. He is always on the bench. He was very good at Empoli though alongside Paredes. Paredes got his big move to Juventus and Zielinski to Napoli; they impressed that much.

On the subject of Paredes, he is the better of the two in my opinion though. I'll whisper it, but i think Paredes would be a better signing for us than Zielinski or even Jorginho. He is younger, better defensively, physically built for the Premier League, and Roma are much easier to deal with than Napoli who will over price their players.

4.) 28 Feb 2018 17:03:37
Mk. No need to whisper pal paredes is a very good player but correct me if I'm wrong did he not move to Russia. Zenit I think could be wrong on that one. The Russian clubs very difficult to deal with. I think we all agree it's just nice to be linked with top players again. Thank you again jurgen. Top manager, top club, top fans, top players all we need now is trophies.

5.) 28 Feb 2018 17:05:03
MK but paredes plays for zenith now as Roma sold him the past window. and BTW zenith would cash in on him at right price.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 17:13:31
Is either jorginio or zellinski a physical midfielder? I mean with can leaving are we looking to bring in a big strong midfielder? Does that make sense Ed? Cheers in advance.

7.) 28 Feb 2018 17:34:55
He is a decent player and has been effective under Sarri. But he is not their first choice player. Allan is their star player. Underrated and a real workhorse in the middle. A proper upgrade on Wijnaldum!

8.) 28 Feb 2018 17:35:06
Real are interested in Paredes. If I am right he was not regular at Roma. They had Pjnaic, Nainggolan and DeRossi playing in their midfield.

I have seen a lot of Zielinski. ( ask me anything about Napoli ) He often replaces Hamsik in the second half. He is more of an attacking mid like Wijnaldum but better technically. He has also scored a few goals.

Allan is the player you should have a look. I was a fan of him from the days of Udinese. He is the Kante at Napoli. The proper B2B player. Pace, Power and technically very good.

Any of the Napoli player would fit in easily under Klopp!

9.) 28 Feb 2018 18:09:43
So what are the chances of us getting this bloke?

Would Napoli actually sell and would he not cost a pretty penny?

So much talk of Jorginho recently, seems like he's already been signed!

10.) 28 Feb 2018 18:18:31
I thought Roma was your 2nd team? How didn't you know they let go of one of your ''favorite'' players man?! (am just kidding mate)

But on Roma being easier to deal with, didn't you know that since selling us Salah and the market changed they are extremely butt-hurt?

Any new player we try to sign from Roma will come with a Salah ''tax'' hehe.

11.) 28 Feb 2018 20:16:26
First off, the Juventus bit was a typo. Nobody mentioned it so i assume it was obvious 😂 I thought he was only on loan at Zenit! My bad lads. Ruined my night that has. I thought Roma loaned him out for experience, not sold him! 😑

No idea how hard it is to deal with Zenit but I'd still take him at a good price. You're right though Harry, he wasn't a regular last season.

12.) 28 Feb 2018 20:45:01
I like Paredes, but ed002 said Real Madrid are interested, he is a special talent. They sold him for 20 million £ to Zenit.

13.) 28 Feb 2018 22:04:41
Zielinski is who Klopp wanted in the summer of 16/ 17 BUT the tapping up thing came up (I know, again) and Udinese refused to sell to us. They accepted lower bids from Napoli and Milan BUT he did not wanna go there and Udinese put their foot down and said LFC is a no go so he went there.

Zielinski is a player Klopp wanted and when it did not happen, he went for Wiji, I think. He is a box to box player who can get forward and score goals, backing up the attackling play and arriving late in the box. I have seen him play a bit at Napoli BUT a Jorginho, he is not. Jorginho is like a Keita type player who can break up play and launch attacks ASAP due to his rich range of passing THO he lacks the energy or drive of a KEita. It does look like he is who Klopp wants BUT good luck dealing with the head case that is the Napoli owner.



03 Feb 2018 09:07:19
Seen an article from xabi Alonso saying how easy it would be to play with our current front three. Imagine having Gerrard Alonso and mascherano behind salah firmino mane I think you couldn't have a better 6 than them.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 09:12:24
They would be unplayable. It would fantastic to watch.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 10:21:03
they would have barcelona parking the bus!

3.) 03 Feb 2018 10:25:58
And behind them, John Arne, Carra, Agger and Johnson (in his prime) .

4.) 03 Feb 2018 11:03:29
Johnson? You’re having a laugh. Finnan all day long over Johnson.

5.) 03 Feb 2018 11:34:42
Johnson was never in his prime. He was someone with all the ability and talent but zero application of it. He did not care one iota. He could have been quality with the right attitude.

6.) 03 Feb 2018 11:35:45
Johnson not in a million years mate.

7.) 03 Feb 2018 12:00:12
Um . Hyppia anyone?

8.) 03 Feb 2018 12:03:46
Finnan over Johnson and hyypia over Agger for me.

9.) 03 Feb 2018 12:04:49
With Reina in nets 😍.

10.) 03 Feb 2018 20:21:18
Now THAT'S a line-up to wet your panties over.

Wish list
Alderweireld/ koulibaly
Nevas (wolves)
Keita (done deal)

Think we will end up with fekir and possibly Malcom from that list. Ed001 was saying a rb is a priority but I would rather get one of the names above for cb and keep taa and Gomez there for next season for more experience. Whoever klopp gets I'll back 100% cause I ate some humble pie regarding ox this season and glady so.

Who upset ed002. Muppet. Last time ed002 gave a transfer update he said possible deals included draxler, ceballos, hadnt heard anything about max meyer regarding Liverpool and they would need to put a contract on the table soon as there is interest elsewhere. Think he said forget about lemar he is going elsewhere. Klopp is a fan of navas and he was looked at (for once I hope your wrong on that one ed002). 99% love your insight ed002 don't let the 1% ruin it for us all.

Yeah he is pretty spot on alright. Called Robertson months before anyone even mentioned him and ox months before also. I was critical of karius and have to say he is proving me wrong since he came back in. This deal makes no sense to me. If we want to replace karius it needs to be oblak Allison or someone of that ilk. Butland will cost 30+ million because he is British regardless what division he is in. Klopp has done a fantastic job so if that's who he wants that's who he gets what do I know.

Ed025. I feel for him too. He isn't purposely making mistakes and I'm sure he is a good lad deep down. He just isn't good enough and like any walk of life if your not good enough you need to be replaced. I can just see this becoming a big problem as the season goes on. Need to act now before any more damage is done. Ps hoping Everton have a good season too mate. Just not better than ours but who knows with karius in between the sticks.


{Ed025's Note - you cant have sentiment in football IR, look at pep who ditched 3 keepers within 12 months (hart being england No1 at the time)because they were just not good enough, if you want to win things then the manager has to be ruthless at times mate, im a massive klopp fan but he needs to sort this out asap because its a key position..

10 Jul 2018 21:30:37
Exactly ed025. We need to get real here. He isn't the answer never has been in my opinion same for ward and mignolet. Is the death threats taking things too far? absolutely. It's disgusting and vile from scum that claim to be fans but are just what I said scum. He is clearly stripped of whatever little confidence that he had and is only going to be a hindrance and a weak link that teams and fans are going to target week in week out. A top replacement is needed for me or we need to build a wall every game for karius too keep the ball out of the net.

Only reason I was saying 2 year loan to buy is this. Barcelona paid x amount on him. Don't want to get in trouble again talking nunbers 😀. Nobody will match Barca's figure they want for the player and Barcelona clearly want griezmann who will cost a few pennys. So what do Barcelona do? Hold onto him hoping he has a good season keeping his value high or him having an off season and his value decreasing even further. Being honest if dembele happens whether that's loan to buy or buy great. He is a very good player but I would rather we got Timo Werner.
