Hey Eds, any truth in the rumors linking LFC with Jonas Hector and Timo Horn, both of FC Cologne? Apparently the club had scouts watch them quite often this season. Quality players both of them imo. Would be significant upgrades on Migs and Moreno.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - There is known interest in Horn from another English side but I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time. Hector would be a very odd choice if Liverpool were interested - he is very much a defender who doesn't get forward much.}



11 Mar 2015 05:16:57
Hey eds, any update on Brad Smith's contract situation? Does he have a future at LFC or do u expect him to move on? Hope he gets a chance as i feel heis a much better option than Enrique at LWB and LB.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was likely to move on, but I don't know if he has changed that over the course of this season. He was being given the season to prove himself.}

1.) 11 Mar 2015 11:37:27
He didn't sign the contract LFC wanted him to, so he was re-called from his loan and asked to play in the reserves. I expect him to leave this summer.

Lots of rumors flying around about Reus to LFC? Any truth to this eds?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 09 Oct 2014 11:53:46
This rumor just never dies.

2.) Sounds like the same old stuff doing the rounds again. Nothing doing, though would be a nice surprise if he did come to LFC.

3.) 10 Oct 2014 05:16:47
Not strictly LFC related, Ed002, but any insight as to where he might end up? Or do you see him staying at BVB?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot say where he will end up but Dortmund have held talks with Manchester City and a third party acting on behalf of PSG has enquired after his availability. Barcelona would like to agree a January 2016 move but it is unsure if that would suit the player. Dortmund will not want to sell to Bayern Munich but they have aging forwards they need to look to replacing and may push for a deal. If Liverpool were to lose Sterling they might look to Reus. If Real Madrid were to lose Ronaldo they might also look to Reus. Arsenal has shown previous interest but I am not convinced there is anything there right now.}

4.) 10 Oct 2014 16:06:41
Very interesting. Cheers for the response, Ed002, it's appreciated.



25 Sep 2013 10:54:39
Hey eds, is there any interest in Carlos Vela from LFC? I still wonder why we did not go for him instead of Aspas, because he has more experience playing at the highest level and is no doubt the better player. He is banging the goals in for Real Sociedad. {Ed001's Note - last I heard he had no interest in a return to England, there were a number of inquiries for him from English clubs.}

Indian Buzzer



23 Sep 2013 04:50:42
Hey ed001, u said the club has been scouting defensive midfielders for the january transfer window. Any idea who they might be? Some one suggested Nzonzi on the rumors page, hope to God that is not true. {Ed001's Note - it is far too early to say with any certainty who it will be. There will be a lot checked out over the next couple of months.}

Indian Buzzer

1.) Were we not interested in Biteco? Would make sense as defensive midfielder, would fit in with youth policy and wouldn't cost an absolutely extortionate fee. Whether he'd be able to make the step up to the Premier League is another question but we have been tracking him for some time apparently.

2.) Why would you not want N'zonzi?
Good player. although not such a big name as Iago Aspas now is he.
Why would Nzonzi move to sit on the bench aswell?
Do wonder sometimes.

3.) Nzonzi would be a decent buy at the right price better than Lucas in the DM role.

4.) Nzonzi has zero control over his temper as well, absolute clown. Sorry but I just think he's a walking red card. How many times do u see after he fouls someone little scuffles and he shoves people in the face - he could get sent off at any stage. He's nearly as bad (temperament wise) as Cattarmole

5.) Work in london and have a few links with the north london duo! Interesting to read who they are both linked with! Arsenal profits have tumbled but still have money to burn!
Javier hernandez

Spurs on the other hand spend was only £2million
Mohammed salah
Adrien rabiot
El shaarawy
Luke shaw (summer)
Dani nieto.
Apparently they are very keen to speak with mata and allegedly he is keen to talk to them?
Obviously things change but these are some natargets! Maybe we should have sold suarez and bought 2 to 3 quality signings?or the jan window? Now look at our jan targe

Question for Ed002:
You have mentioned number of times that Coutinho is interested in leaving the club for Barcelona or PSG. Is this a trend you see continuing with South American (and to some extent Spanish) players irrespective of the club's improved performances or can you see them actually wanting to stay if LFC start winning titles on a regular basis in the future?
Chelsea and Man City have done a very good job of keeping their star players out of the clutches of Barca, Real, PSG and Bayern so can you see LFC doing the same?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - Players want to be playing at the highest level that they can and want the opportunity to win leagues and play in the Champions League. It really is nothing new. Liverpool are playing in a very competitive league which makes it all the more difficult to sustain success with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United competing as well.}

1.) 12 Nov 2016 15:19:54
Fully agree with you and I find t disappointing if this is the mentality of top players today.
They can stay in a competitive league or o and play for PSG and be able to walk it, or Real and Barcelona and have a couple of tough games per season.
Sad indictment of the modern game.

2.) 12 Nov 2016 15:51:42

Nothing to do with league. Hazard and Aguero has been in with their same team from years now. KDB, Pogba, Sanchez, Ozil and majority of the high profiles names are in the PL. In fact except the MSN and Ronaldo everyone are in the PL.
It's about success and titles. Our past record is poor for elite players to get convinced unless you fill their pocket with high wages.
Look at Spurs for example. Struggling due lack of quality in the side.

3.) 12 Nov 2016 18:31:54
More like wages.

4.) 12 Nov 2016 22:59:46
When do man united ever compete anymore? lol.

atdhe. eu is showing the game. I watch all of my football there. Games are on 24 hrs a day.



03 Jul 2016 06:55:07
Is it just me or has anyone else been bored to death with Euros 2016? I have not completed one single game without falling asleep. Matches back here in India start at 12:30 AM and all i can say is I have lost valuable sleep trying to watch whatever it is the national teams are trying to do.
I really miss the premier league. It may not have the technical ability of other leagues, but the thrill, suspense and pace of the game really draws me to it.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 03 Jul 2016 07:43:23
It's just you, mate. I have watched some great games. Every Wales and Iceland game has been high energy and end to end. The Croatia v Portugal game was end to end especially in Extra Time and the Italy v Spain game was awesome as well and there others too so again it's just you, mate.

2.) 03 Jul 2016 09:38:47
Totally agree with Indian buzzer, the euros as not been great at all.

3.) 03 Jul 2016 10:58:52
What would you expect? After most of the players played 50+ games you expect quick football, up and down counters etc. Euro is played for resault, teams are evenly matched and i enjoy that! Best players of europe are there and tactically it is very good to watch for those who really like football. maybe a chance to see how a good tactics and team spirit wins you games and that you see that some of the English players are so overrated or they just don't care for their country. I noticed English guys don't care for their nacional team but if you are bad why would you take something off others who enjoy it!

4.) 03 Jul 2016 11:26:54
Enjoyed large parts of it.
Some games have been full though, depends how lucky you are.

5.) 03 Jul 2016 11:47:55
The Croatia-Portugal game was one of the worst I've ever watched. 117 minutes for the first shot on target. 2 hours of boring football with no attacking threat. End to end? Yeah they were at each others end once in the match. By no means has the tourney been bad, but to pick out the worst match as an example of its quality is mental. Portugal v Hungary though.

6.) 03 Jul 2016 11:48:34
indian buzzer, what part of india are you from mate.

7.) 03 Jul 2016 12:26:23
Mumbai. Why?

8.) 03 Jul 2016 17:37:42
I'll have to disagree with you, I love international football tournaments and usually watch as many of the games as I can.

There's not a lot of love on this page for international football but I don't get why. I just like watching football and seeing the worlds best go at it in a different format outside of their respective clubs and teams. It's more nationalistic and feels more authentic than they big money transfer teams we see now.

Last nights penalty shootout was great, some dire misses and a real roller coaster of emotions.



28 Jun 2016 05:51:40
Does any one agree with me that Woy playing Rooney in CM was a similar mistake to the one Klopp has made in playing Milner at CM repeatedly?
Both players are headless chickens with no real understanding of the game. Look s lost and embarrassed in midfield.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 28 Jun 2016 07:47:12
No, IMO. Rooney hasn't had a good international tournament since Euro 2004 and hasn't had a good season in 5 years while unlike Woy who had better midfielder like Hendo to choose from, Klopp had to play Milner in midfield due to injuries and absences because when all were fit, Milner played wide. Woy was stupid to have taken off form players like Rooney and Wilshere who are poor players and were off form due to blind lotalty. The comparison with Klopp is non existent.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 08:03:56
I was not criticizing Klopp. Just saying that Rooney is just like Milner in CM, all huff and puff but brain dead when it comes to understanding what actually is a CM's role in the team. Of course Klopp did not have much of a choice, so that is not on him completely but he could have played Lucas with Can in midfield.

3.) 28 Jun 2016 11:55:08
Id take Milner over Rooney any day.



08 Jun 2016 16:04:48
Question for ED001 and Ed002:
Is Mane seen as an alternative to Gotze or does Klopp want both? Mane's a winger while Gotze's a CAM so i hope its both.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - Try not to complicate matters. Hopeless.}

1.) 08 Jun 2016 16:31:58
Here's my best guess:

Klopp's top winger target was Dembele, and then after him, Gotze.

Gotze isn't a wide winger, but he's played both RW and LW for both Germany and Bayern. He's a versatile forward.

LFC failed to land either.

So, IMHO, the Mane rumors are coming from the Committee. I think Klopp has left it to the Committee now that the club failed to get his two top targets, and (surprise! ) they have an EPL winger at the top of their list in Mane.

In fairness to the Committee, it seems likely they had identified Teixeiria in January. Klopp must be said to have made a big mistake in veto'ing that transfer. He probably did it because he thought he could land Dembele/ Gotze for less, but that didn't happen. Teixeira would have been far better than all remaining options and actually wanted to come.

Teixeira also could have helped us in Europa and in the EPL after January. Like I said, it was a huge fee, but Teixeira wanted to play for the shirt.

2.) 08 Jun 2016 16:55:05
Texeira just want to get out of cold Ukraine.

3.) 08 Jun 2016 17:00:47
Nailed it Fear. I can honestly see no other way any of this could have gone down.

I'd say Ian Ayre most likely put in low bids for klopps top targets just to get Mane because he thinks he knows more than Klopp. Who does he think he his. let's round up the pitch forks and GET HIM BOYS!

4.) 08 Jun 2016 17:12:31
Fear, is there any substance to any of what you said? It's completely made up. Committee making up rumors? How do you know matip wasn't our top target? Teixiera wanted to play for the shirt so much he accepted a huge wage packet and went to a dire league. The window hasn't even opened yet let alone closed!

5.) 08 Jun 2016 17:32:30
Is there any substance? The post is the substance. Did you read what I said in my first line? I said it's my best guess.

It was widely reported that Klopp called Dembele days before he signed with BvB, to try to convince him to come to LFC. It didn't work.

Also, the Gotze dealings have been widely reported on.

Now Mane is popping up as a top target, and as an EPL player he's not a player who Klopp has seen a lot of (unlike Dembele or Gotze) . So, this is my theory as to why that is.

Feel free to disagree/ disbelieve, I couldn't care less.

But at least get your facts straight, on Teixeira, the fee wasn't up to him. It was set by Donetsk, not Teixeira. PS: If you've been reading the news, Juning has bought Inter-Milan and Teixeira and Ramires are likely moving to Serie A.

6.) 08 Jun 2016 17:43:31
Teixira did agree to go though right. He could have stayed. He had a contract. They threw money at him and he took it. Your'e full of conspiracy theories yet can't accept the simple one that a player took money over playing for Liverpool. Gotze isn't over yet. Bayern want rid. No idea about that supposed phone call but maybe dembele just wanted to play European football. Does it have to be down to much more than that?

7.) 08 Jun 2016 17:47:13
I think too many people are far up klopps a** to be honest. It's getting ridiculous now, every mistake the man makes there's an excuse but if it was Rogers or someone else we would all be on their backs. At the end of the day, manager has the final say, if mane is first, second or third choice it doesn't matter because it's klopp choice if he want to fund £30m on that sort of player. Not the transfer committee, not Ian ayre. I would blame them for other things like targeting or scouting the wrong sort of players, or not getting in our top targets, but when the manager says yes go ahead and get mane, who's fault is it ultimately? I for one, think there are much better players out there for the sort of money they would ask for but it happens every year so there's no shocks or suprises. Last year we spent £32.5m on benteke and there where much better players out there for that price but that's Liverpool for you. I've said quite a few times during this transfer window that we don't seem to be targeting the right sort of players and apparently I'm whinging so there you go. Those same people don't rate mane. Go figure.

{Ed002's Note - You are talking about the man who got Caulker in to the club.}

8.) 08 Jun 2016 18:39:16
I can't blame the manager when we make the same mistakes year after year with different managers.
What is the link with Southampton?
Are our scouts aware of any other clubs? Why do we pay 20-30% over the odds for Southampton players?

Putting aside the Mane link, there is clearly a problem with recruitment and it cannot just be down to the managers.

9.) 08 Jun 2016 19:29:52
Exactly ed02. I rate klopp but some people think he's Guaranga incarnate or something.

10.) 09 Jun 2016 00:46:48
Can we just drop the term transfer committee. Pretty sure Rodgers coined this. Pleb.

Do people seriously think other clubs don't have a scouting network, head scouts, board of directors, FDs, sporting directors, managers and coaches all weighing in on decisions? You'd think LFC were the only team that had multiple stakeholders weighing in on transfer decisions.

Was the boot room a committee too?

Also, the Gotze deal isn't off. The transfer window isn't open yet either.

11.) 09 Jun 2016 09:10:40
Ron: It *does* seem like the places that LFC seems to focus on for transfer targets seem to stay the same year, to year, no matter who is manager.

I can't believe we may end up going back to the Southhampton well for another overrated/ overvalued player, even with Klopp at the helm.

Ron, I suspect that Lucas and possibly even Can will move on in the summer. So yes, a midfielder is definitely being lined up with extra European games next season

Klopp personally called up Klavan to make sure he signed for LFC. Highly doubt Klavan will be ditched in 6 months, considering he is a decent back up.

KopKlopp, who the hell in their mind would want the awful Witsel at the club? And Allen does not fit into Klopp's style of play hence why Klopp wants him gone. Is that really so difficult to comprehend?

LOl Ed025. To be big spenders, you actually need half decent players to want to sign for the dross that Everton have become, and i simply do not see that changing anytime soon. I read a lot of people saying Koeman made a side ways step from Saints to Everton. My opinion is he went backwards.

Mane will be missed against Chelsea. Alonso is the big weaklink in their 5 man defense and we will not have Mane to tear him a new one. Maybe instead of shoehorning Sturridge or Firmino on the right, Klopp may actually give Wilson or Ojo a run out and see what they can do to Chelsea's fullbacks. If both pass with flying colours, then just maybe we may not need another winger in the summer afterall.
