Question for Ed2 if around(I'll settle for anyone answering really!)
Ed2 you mentioned last week that the situation with Pedro would become somewhat clearer this week. Is there anything you'd be kind enough to share?
I can't really believe the links with Liverpool to be true unless Liverpool got some special dispensation from the FA that they'll pay for all this and were allowed field a team of 15 players each game next season but curiosity is getting he better of me I'm afraid.



{Ed002's Note - It is clear in that Pedro is available at the right price. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at all at this time.}

Would be interested in the Eds opinion, Would bringing in someone along the lines of Raymond Verheijen help Liverpool out in the long term?
Do you feel Klopp would be willing to adapt his style to implement a different physical approach to his training/ playing style?
I don't remember reading about this fella back in August but instead of abusing him, which I'm sure some stuck up fans are, why not accept his expertise as being bang on and look to learn from him.
Would love to hear your thoughts Eds


{Ed001's Note - god no his periodisation nonsense is just a con. The guy is just a major prick, er I mean self publicist who jumps on anything to further his own ends.}

1.) 27 Jan 2017 15:43:52
I'm not even going to pretend to know what periodisation is but do you think there's something that should be done differently at melwood to deal with the issues of tiring in second half of the season?

I don't even know of that is the main contributory factor in our downturn in form but it could well be playing a part?

{Ed001's Note - personally I do not see that as anything like an issue. I have said it before and I will say it again, I believe the problem is the attitude of 'expecting to win against the smaller clubs'. There is absolutely no way the players are tired. It is nonsense propagated by people like Verheijen to make a job for himself.}

2.) 27 Jan 2017 20:48:07
He says there tired because they worked so hard in preseason.

Are you tired from running 7/ 8 months ago?

The players fitness is fine. There positions on the field is cocked uo because the system has changed. were playing a different formation with different dynamics after the whole season has been a differebt way.

There not not getting used to it but more so that it doesn't really work. Can doesbt work well with hendo like wij. Firmino or sturridge not both. some pace needed somewhere ojo/ origi on there somewhere to offer countering ability and a threat in behind.

If sturridges pace has gone then he might adapt to it but he's not as good then as firmino for us and iur system so we have to go with riberto.

3.) 27 Jan 2017 21:53:06
It's also worth bearing in mind that even if this guy is right, our pre season tour isn't decided by the manager so blaming Klopp for it is largely ridiculous. That fitness egg bloke is just a divi who thinks he has the right to talk because he had big jobs in the past (despite none of them actually helping his employer to success)

4.) 27 Jan 2017 23:08:26
Clearly an attitude/ mentality problem, which needs addressing. Sharpish.

5.) 27 Jan 2017 23:39:57
Klopp said at the beginning of the season that this is now his squad and he is responsible for results.

It's only fair that he is judged over the full season.

Sturridge could have had a hatrick against Southampton. It was only the wrong contact made with the ball but he was in the right place at the right time.

The team created loads of chances and as the nearer the match came the more we attacked and we were caught on the break.
It's not as bad as it seems and We are capable of putting a run together that includes beating all our rivals for top 4.

Kop the faith.

6.) 28 Jan 2017 00:14:44
I don`t know where all the love for this Raymond fellow is coming from. Our issues have nothing to do with fitness. Nothing, whatsoever so he has nothing to offer us or anyone else apart from pointless bluster. We need to regroup and re-evaluate our whole approach and that is Klopp`s job now.

The Swansea game showed that the team looked disinterested and pedestrian and only started playing when they went 2 up. That should NEVER happen again. Some of our players need to start pulling their weight as they have let Klopp down this Jan. We will bounce back BUT we need to take a hard look at ourselves and start approaching games with the right attitude. It is that attitude that allowed us to have the best record vs the top 6 cos we fear no one. That killer instinct needs to come back ASAP.

7.) 28 Jan 2017 02:26:24
If Raymond is so right, why is Firmino not exhausted (probably the hardest worker on the pitch)? Why hasn't Llalana suffered with constant injuries? Add Coutinho and Mane to the list (Couts' injury was a bad tackle) .
I see our team occasionally complacent and lacking inspiration and creativity sometimes. But never burnt out.

{Ed001's Note - exactly Annie. The man is a charlatan peddling his crap to suckers.}

8.) 28 Jan 2017 20:26:18
Hes isnr right. Just a pure tit head. Snake oil salesman.



03 Nov 2016 09:22:57
Looking for some feedback from locals on here. I'm thinking of heading over to Liverpool from Dublin this weekend but I don't have a match ticket. How likely would it be to get one outside the ground? And how much over the odds would I be charged?

Thanks for any help lads.


1.) 03 Nov 2016 10:16:21
You'll be paying mad odds pal you'll definitely get one but will pay for it!

2.) 03 Nov 2016 10:30:53
The game is on tv too isn't it? Find a good pub with a good atmosphere, if you're in Liverpool early, head down to the team hotel in hope st and see the team as the board the bus, would prob be 11ish I'd guess. Then with the crazy money you didn't get ripped off for by a tout, head round town to celebrate a victory (fingers and toes crossed! )

3.) 03 Nov 2016 10:30:58
I'm pretty much resigned to paying over the odds. Just trying to get an idea of how much over the odds too!
Have you any idea?!

4.) 04 Nov 2016 20:58:42
Sorry mate, I don't know.



03 Oct 2016 08:29:51
Eds, Not that I feel we need him and it would be more of a nostalgia romantic type return but when stevies contract runs out would he be likely to return to Liverpool in any capacity be it playing or otherwise?


{Ed002's Note - Not if he wants a future career in the game. It would make zero sense for him. He certainly cannot play that Premier League level and they are not going to be stupid enough to give him a coaching role at this stage - it would be disruptive. Perhaps he could look for a player-manager or player coach role in the lower leagues or Scotland.}

1.) 03 Oct 2016 09:19:40
It would make zero sense for the club. Didn't Ed002 highlight the unhelpful influence he had, pressurising some of the foreign players into a culture they were uncomfortable with? Let him prove himself as a coach elsewhere - if that is what he wants.

2.) 03 Oct 2016 09:25:20
I wouldn't want him back in any area just yet, we don't need any distractions. I can imagine he'd come back and act the big I am. We don't need that.

3.) 03 Oct 2016 10:10:07
I think he should see if Brendan will have him on a player-coach basis at Celtic.

{Ed002's Note - Why? Is there a reason he must be with someone he knows. I appreciate he is a very, very long way from being the shiniest rock in the box but he really should be man enough now to go out in to the big wide world alone.}

4.) 03 Oct 2016 11:09:26
Thanks ed!

5.) 03 Oct 2016 14:45:59
SG should stay exactly where he is as nolstalgia is part of history and should be left there.

6.) 03 Oct 2016 12:49:44
if he did come back in any sort of playing capacity to Liverpool (be it a player or player/ coach), aren't he and the club likely to get prosecuted for the tapping up comments he made in his latest book?

I would be absolutely dead set against Stevie coming back to the club in any capacity until such a point that he had proven he was up to the job (whatever it may be) on ability alone, rather than nostalgia.

Klopp is building something special here, and no amount of rose tinted specs should be allowed to disrupt it.

7.) 04 Oct 2016 02:18:42
Zed dicuss spot on.



26 Sep 2016 12:27:57
Sorry if this is a repeat but couldn't find anything when searching.

Have you any input or opinions on the report Bayern could come in for Klopp?

As far as I'm concerned it's inevitable for Germany's top club to come in for Germany's top coach at some point.


1.) 26 Sep 2016 13:04:48
Let them come.
There's been some acrimony between Kloppo, Bayern and its officials in the past. He's got a 6yr deal. He wants to prove himself in the premier league. He's won the Bundesliga twice already.
Winning the Bundesliga with Bayern is like shooting dead fish in a barrel. Winning the premier league with LFC and your name goes down in footballing history. 😎.

2.) 26 Sep 2016 13:08:04
Didn't he say he wouldn't manage Bayern?

3.) 26 Sep 2016 13:20:12
You may think Bayern is Germany`s top club but Klopp doesn`t and has never cared for them, period. Also if he rejected them before when he didn`t have a job (that he wanted, I might add), why would he give them any attention now when he has a job he loves and the club, fans and players love him with a 6 yr deal to boot? Come on man, think.

4.) 26 Sep 2016 13:22:59
Not really, for a german coach winning bundesliga and champions league with Bayern is like marrying your childhood sweetheart, it's a dream of any german manager. Klopp may not have articulate it but it is in his heart. He could very well gone bayern if Pep future is sorted out early and bayern offer at same time as Liverpool.

5.) 26 Sep 2016 13:30:40
I'm sure if Klopp wanted to manage bayern he could have by now.

6.) 26 Sep 2016 13:34:38
I agree ron, it will also be that much sweeter when we will the champions league with him again in a couple of years time.

7.) 26 Sep 2016 13:49:25
I wouldn't let it concern you, klopp is a man of loyalty and integrity IMO, he'll be here for many many years and would go as far as to say if all goes to plan he'll give service to the club along the lines of ferguson and wenger which is rare in modern day football. Klopp fits the club, the fans have shown him love (well apart from a few on this site, luckily I wouldn't imagine he looks at Internet forums) from day one and he'll remember that! Rarely does a manager fit at a club and klopp does exactly that.

8.) 26 Sep 2016 13:58:04
I remember Ed002 mentioning something a while back (before we got Klopp) about Bayern wanting Klopp if Pep were to leave. However that was a long time ago and Ancelloti (spelling) is a top manager and should do well there.

9.) 26 Sep 2016 14:15:32
"Not really, for a german coach winning bundesliga ans champions league with Bayern is like marrying your childhood sweetheart"

I have to admit Leek, that's up there with some of your best 😂😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - shame it is not true as most Germans hate Bayern.}

10.) 26 Sep 2016 15:10:42
Ed002 has previously said something along the lines of Klipperty will be drinking tea in Munich in a coulple of years.
Things change quickly in football, I'm not going to worry about it. At one point everyone was worried Man City were going to come in for Rodgers, next minute he was sacked.

Best thing is to enjoy the moment 🙂.

{Ed002's Note - I did not say a couple of years.}

11.) 26 Sep 2016 16:06:51
He may not be the best manager but he's the best manager for us. I'm not worried about him leaving I'd be more worried of him being forced out by idiots. In the 6 weeks the season been going half of you have called him for everything. Now there is a love in. It's embarrassing. Stay loyal an SUPPORT.

12.) 26 Sep 2016 17:24:16
ed002 has said before that Bayern have wanted Klopp for a while. But he's not going any time soon.

13.) 26 Sep 2016 17:40:55
Seriously, Leek, are you posting this sort of garbage for a bet or do you REALLY believe what you are typing?

Klopp has already said he doesn't want to manage Bayern (Google it), and if you look at his managerial history, he loves a challenge. NOT winning the league with Bayern would be a bigger challenge.

Until we have won the league a couple of times, I cannot see Klopp wanting to leave. And even then, which Liverpool fan (and Klopp is a fan too, never forget that) wouldn't want to carry on and try to build a legacy rivalling Shanks or Paisley?

14.) 26 Sep 2016 18:27:04
Even Alex Ferguson recently admitted that Klopp is a good fit for Liverpool and the fans. I think he'll give us some years of service, unless there's a major change in the administration of the club.
For now, let's just sit tight and enjoy the ride!

15.) 26 Sep 2016 19:27:46
The average German football fans view of Bayern is very much the same as the average English football fans view of Liverpool and United as the most successful clubs in history - they hate them. And much like ours and United fans, Bayerns fans generally couldn't give less of a &%! #.

16.) 26 Sep 2016 20:18:55
Fair enough ed002, I wasn't quoting as I can't remember the exact words, was it 3-4 years?

{Ed002's Note - What I said Ron was I expect them to make the offer to him in 2019 - and that will coincide with when Gerrard will come out of prison and will be available to take over.}

17.) 26 Sep 2016 22:56:31
Kloppo is from Baden-Wurtemburg who have a rivalry with Bavaria, like Lancs / Yorks in the old days.
I think he is pretty much on record saying he can't stand Bayern and all they stand for as well.

{Ed002's Note - He would have already moved their if PG did not mess around.}

18.) 27 Sep 2016 06:55:44
Thanks ed002.



17 Aug 2016 23:15:04
I'd like to get something off my chest if I may, why do our players come out with stupid ridiculous unnecessary comments?
Latest one I've read in the echo is along the lines of Coutinho isn't far from being mentioned in the same breath as messi or ronaldo. What's the point of making comments like that?
How about the player making these comments concentrates on getting his game up coutinhos standard instead of these types of comments.
It's very tiring hearing our players say what they're going to do but then doing nothing. Shut up talking and just do it!
Thank you, rant over lol.


1.) 17 Aug 2016 23:31:01
Oh god, it's starting. Fans completely over-reacting to generic sound bites from a Liverpool player. Looks like Hendo's next in line for the 'this player is awful' spotlight.

2.) 17 Aug 2016 23:36:21
They're pointless sound bites is the issue.

3.) 18 Aug 2016 00:03:14
So what is our Captian meant to say when asked about the best player in our squad? "He may think he's good but I'm better" imagine the comments then!

4.) 18 Aug 2016 00:13:33
My rule: always ignore what managers and players 'say' to the press 😎.

5.) 18 Aug 2016 00:34:52
He has media responsibilities like every Liverpool player, he's going to be asked about his team Mates, would you have preferred it if he'd said 'Coutinho? He's alright but he's hardly world class is he'?

6.) 18 Aug 2016 03:39:40
Hendo should try something along the lines of "for any scouts that are listening, I just want to let you know that Coutinho is crap". Would get a laugh and avoid hype.

7.) 18 Aug 2016 06:33:21
No no. U got the wrong guy. Likely the question is framed like this or similr- Do you think Coutinho has the potential to reach level of messi or Ronaldo?

Then of course Hendo got sucked in and say good things about his team mate. Next moment u know the ridiculous headlines. C'mon that's british journalist for u. Seems u guys got hoodwink again and again.

8.) 18 Aug 2016 07:34:12
Ron, you nearly got it right, I say always ignore the press and their spin!

9.) 18 Aug 2016 08:20:01
O gosh, player says something nice about his talented teammate, somebody call the cops.

10.) 18 Aug 2016 08:38:23
I think what the OP was getting at is, maybe players should play down there chances and the abilities of themselves and others, because it raises expectations of some fans while gives the press ammunition to have a pop at us at a later date should things go pear shaped.

If your asked a question like the one asked to henderson then a simple " couthinho is a top class player and were lucky to have him " would have sufficed instead of pigeon holing players or making unrealistic comparisons which heap more pressure on the player and the team.

11.) 18 Aug 2016 12:26:11
Way too much over reaction to what is a nothing comment. They play, train, spend time together every day - do you honestly think Coutinho goes home to read the Echo to find out what Hendo thinks of him?

Come on now this is just stupid: players have obligations to speak to the press - sometimes they say things that are a little exaggerated, or incorrect - but they do it because they have to and that's it. Reading into these sorts of comments is profoundly stupid.

12.) 18 Aug 2016 14:45:40
A nothing comment that the OP has allowed himself to get wound up for no reason over. Hendo is trying to motivate his team mate to perform and give him confidence. Players and managers do that all the time so no problem there. If you don`t understand that them there`s not much that can be done.

13.) 18 Aug 2016 07:51:50
Yes Bazaaa that's why I put the ' ' around the word 'say'.
It's usually not what has been said, just what's been reported.

If Fifa is anything to go by (and I think we all agree it's the bible) he's a serious speed demon but I'd never heard of him before playing Fifa 17 im not even going to pretend I had. I don't know what to make of the links really.

@Annie you gave me a chuckle there I must admit, credit where it's due. It doesn't take away from the fact the club is dreadful at handling transfers - both in and out of the club, and has been for many years. Having a top manager like Klopp feels like we're papering over these fundamental cracks.

I quite like the idea of what happens at old Trafford (I've lost 99% of you already but please hear me out! ) where the away fans are in the corner but higher up.

This essentially means the away team have absolutely no corner of the ground where they aren't in contact with rival fans at pitch level when taking throw ins or corners. It can add an extra small little element of intimidation could it not?

Would be interested in your thoughts lads.

It's January Benny!
Of course every team would like to look at the table and see themselves miles ahead of everyone but even if that was the case it still goes back to my first sentence, it's January!
They're halfway through a marathon at this stage, no point looking over your shoulder now. Just concentrate on getting yourself to the finish line and then see how it goes.

There's been many a season when I've conceded liverpools title hopes at this time of the year but that usually coz we're about 15 points off the pace with no real sign of turning it around.

The team is in a fantastic place right now, just enjoy the ride, it doesn't tend to happen very often for us so stop choosing to concentrate on negativity - hypothetical or otherwise!

The owners should leave. Klopp out. Everyone out. It's an absolute disgrace we haven't signed anyone yet 😉.
