Eds do u think morgan schneiderlin would make brilliant cover for lucas? And being that he is only 23 would be a great player in a few seasons?

Wud southampton be willing to sell to anyone? {Ed001's Note - yes, but no they would not be looking to sell.}


1.) Was there anything genuine in the Biteco link, the young lad playing in the Brazilian League? Looked a very good prospect from what i've seen of him in highlights on the net. {Ed002's Note - One for the search engine.}

2.) Not a chance of us letting him go at the moment. You will also need a shed load if you make an offer. He is very good and I would put money on the fact that he will at some point go to a big club possibly Spain/ Germany.

Just check out his game stats

Love the way that you have to register to leave a message for a 'big club' on the site.

I was thinking, yes mane has upped his game recently in terms of goals over the last few games but if we are all been completely honest he doesn't seem quite right in general this season, certainly not in terms of his final ball and finish in comparison to what it was last season.

Ed01, do you or anyone else even think it might have something to do with him being switched to the left wing this season? Having played most of last season on the right where now ironically salah is and is having a joy of a season! Just wondering also does mane have a preference and could he be a bit annoyed at the joy salah is getting in what was originally his position?


{Ed001's Note - he is happy playing where he is mate, he does not have to hold out on the left, it is just a starting point. He can drift hither and thither as he wishes. Mane is just not in tip top form, injuries and being in and out of the side because of them have just seen it dip. He will come good again I am sure.}

1.) 16 Jan 2018 17:36:27
Ah right thanks Ed, I’m sure he will too and I’m still happy with the input he’s giving was just wondering if he himself had any preference which he knew of for his sort of starting point in the line up. Espeically when I think the right backs u would be facing in the league would probably be a bit better quality than left backs in general as there seems to be a shortage of top quality left backs from who I can think of!

{Ed001's Note - he was known as a left winger before he joined us mate.}

2.) 16 Jan 2018 17:39:03
100% correct ed. He just needs to find a little missing rhythm. On his best form I think he is our best player or very very close to it.

Even when 10% off his best form he still contributes with goals and assists, there are not many players in the league that can match him.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 17:48:45
It's nothing to do with position. Its his pace and acceleration has dramatically decreased since his double hamstring injury. I have noticed it for the last month/ Like most on here I was initially untroubled since I just suspected it to be match fitness but it actually has not improved at all. Yes he has scored some goals but his ability to race past people has completely gone and Its not a fitness thing since he plays 90 minutes without problem. T

he list of players who were lightning quick and then lost that couple of yards after hamstring tears is endless. Even just with liverpool there was owen and torres who were both crushed by hamstring tears. Not to mention Sturbridge who also completely lost his sprinting ability.

I know I will get hate for this but I mentioned it on twitter weeks ago and more and more people have noticed how he hasn't gone past anyone recently the way he did last season and is getting out sprinted by most players. I would love to be wrong but I will bet a lot of money that his other worldly pace does not return.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:48:51
Yeah I think people are quick to forget he had a significant hamstring injury and was in a sense rushed back a little earlier than should of been and then had a reoccurance of the same thing. i think that has taken it's toll on him slighty and with all them games over the Xmas period klopp played it right in resting him from time to time to help protect him breaking down again.

As ed said as the season gets on I think you will see him finish it really strong.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 18:31:26
Could've fooled me when he was leaving Kyle Walker for dead 😂.

6.) 16 Jan 2018 18:33:37
There are LFC players that I worry about. Sadio Mane is NOT one of them. The guy is a beast. All you have to do is look at the pure quality of his last two goals both with his left foot. Form is temporary BUT Class is permanent. Mane will be fine.

7.) 16 Jan 2018 19:00:22
StevieJesus- You could be right, although Manes hammy injuries have not been on a par with Owens, what’s the maximum time he’s been out?2 months?
I hope your wrong and it’s just a confidence thing, I did think he looked to get a little swag back on Sunday after his goal and was being more direct afterwards.

8.) 16 Jan 2018 20:34:49
Yes Cobra I know what you mean in terms of the seriousness of the injury. As I say I wasn't overly concerned early on but its now been a long time since he's been back and his fitness is back but that pace has not improved at all. I have been watching him very closely every game and its just got me a little concerned. Not sure why that moron said he left walker for dead because he frequently got out sprinted by many players even Fernandinho. If you watch his previous 4 games vs clips from last season or so he has not gone round the outside of fullbacks the way he was. its night and day. Fortunately for us he's absolute class so he can still score goals and perform well with his current fitness, I just worry he may have lost that extra couple yards. Only time will tell.

Seems to be a lot of clubs making strange enquiries/ bids now that we are mid way thru January.

Chelsea for Carrol / Barkley

Arsenal for Aubamyang who seems to have none of the top clubs chasing him for reasons beyond me but there must be something to it.

Everton for Walcott,

Just some examples, it does seem like there's even more of a lack of quality available this January, as is usually the case with this transfer window.

To be honest I think getting van disk has been the best business and definitely the best we could have wished for.

Would it be fair in saying people would be happy if the window ended today and we kept any money we have to spend in the summer when there's more time and clubs are more willing to let go of players who may want to move?

I would personally probably rather that, my only fear is that come the summer someone makes a ridiculous buy and again the fees go even more sky high like we have been seeing happening with each passing window recently.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:56:03
Aubameyang is a walking disaster off the pitch, Ed’s have given a lot of detail on why he’s not wanted.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 14:29:56
Walcott to Everton is a decent deal considering they would take anyone atm! I would have fancied selling Markovic to Everton. He has scored a few in the past!

3.) 16 Jan 2018 15:09:17
Not even i am cruel enough to give Everton, Markovic. The bluenoses have suffered enough mate.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 17:35:34
Don't you mean Markovic has suffered enough, MK?

5.) 16 Jan 2018 19:00:01
Auba to Arsenal is nothing but a panic buy, IMO. There is a reason no big club will touch him and why BVB are fed up to their back teeth with him. He is too old and a true piece of work in the DR. Disgusting attitude, very undisciplined and a sulker.



14 Jan 2018 23:56:03
Hey Ed's quick question, do you know how long our goalkeeper coach has been at Liverpool? And do you have an opinion on how good he is if u know much about him?

Just seems we have struggled here for a long time, Reina in his last few years was nothing like he once was.
Mignolet who was doing great at Sunderland has gone completely downhill since joining us.
Karius I hear was highly rated in Germany before the move and doesn't look like he's going to work out.
Even ward I hear had a great spell on loan but can't get in ahead of two keepers at Liverpool who are far below the standard required!

Have we had the same coach dating back to the times of Reina?


{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in a witch hunt.}

1.) 15 Jan 2018 00:14:30
A witch hunt? I’ve no idea what you mean, literally just asking how long the coach has been there and had u an opinion on him.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 00:27:16
From his Wiki page:
“After retiring from playing/ coaching in 2009 with Tranmere Rovers, Achterberg joined Liverpool FC in June 2009 as a goalkeeping coach of the reserve and academy goalkeepers before being promoted to first-team goalkeeping coach in summer 2011”

Mignolet was never “all that” at Sunderland and anyone who watched Karius in Germany knew he had a weakness with crosses and high balls. He hasn’t made these keepers worse but he hasn’t improved them much either.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 00:40:23
Am I right in saying that Pepe Reina didn't get on with him.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 02:04:31
Mignolet was c**p at Sunderland too. It was Brendan's genius that brought him to LFC and of course the horrendous transfer committee.
Karius though is a curious case. Looks like Archterberg has ripped away what ever qualities he had that made him a good GK in Germany.

5.) 15 Jan 2018 02:35:53
I remember being linked Timo Horn and Karius and we ended up buying Karius. I was hoping and praying for Horn.
However let's see what a run of games does from the lad and evaluate the situation in the summer. or at least that seems to likely be the path we are taking.

6.) 15 Jan 2018 02:42:23
Have to agree with the assessment of Mignolet never being that good at Sunderland. Remember Suarez scored for us against him from a near impossible angle, think Karius/ Sane earlier, only from a much tighter angle.
I know someone who scouted Mignolet for another club around that time, he watched him about 15 times and said his only decent attribute he noticed in that time was he was good at one on ones.
Otherwise, pretty average.
Not having a go at the lad but I think it's fair to say there are many better Keepers out there.
Ward and Karius need to fight it out for #1 until the summer, we need a Keeper who can make a difference to come in then.
Great result today!
Robertson was breathtaking at times!



12 Jan 2018 23:34:43
Hey Ed’s if any of you are about, I’d like to ask a question that’s a bit away from any specific transfer. But with Liverpool getting a good profit from Coutinho and if they were to say target a world class player that some people would say is beyond us, I’m wondering how are Liverpool as a club thought of now by the best players and agents around football? Are we thought as a step down from the likes of the Manchester clubs, Chelsea, the Spanish giants, Juve, Bayern, etc. or are we still viewed as a massive club because of our history and how many titles we’ve won? Just I’m always biased thinking people should be feeling blessed to be playing for us or have us interested in buying them but from your knowledge is that how we are still looked at if you know what i mean? Thanks for your time!


{Ed002's Note - The profit related to Coutinho is of no relevance. Liverpool are less attractive because of their lack of success but are clearly happy to spend well over the odds. They remain a well known club and that helps - but only a limited number of players are able to join each year - and there needs to be a balance and they need to fit in.}

1.) 12 Jan 2018 23:47:23
Stepping stone to Barcelona lol
No seriously I’m sure players all have different reasons for wanting to join us, some will want to because they are fans and some purely for the money or as a stepping stone.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 00:18:53
One of the most attractive things about playing for us is the fans and atmosphere at Anfield.
I saw an article the other day where somebody had said we are no longer a big club. Which is half true, we have a huge history but we rely on that anymore. Players want to join clubs who are big NOW competing for titles and trophies.

Hopefully we get far in this years Champs League and win some form of trophy then continue improving and do even better next season.

Many players would love to still play for us now but the lack of trophies is what puts them off.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 00:26:37
Top players would either view us as a stepping stone, or have to be happy to compete with the rest in our league. Unfortunately we are not a top draw, trophy certain team anymore. There does seem a little bit of a seed change recently for some reason, however, but that may just be amongst the fans.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 01:21:50
At the minute I believe the finished article players will choose city Chelsea and united above us so we get the players with a point to prove who use us as a stepping stone. Even Suarez decided opinion when he joined us and clubs didn't want to take the risk. I remember Harry Redknapp saying Spurs considered him but thought he was too similar to Van Der Vaart. Sometimes it's not a bad thing getting players with a point to prove as they improve us in the short term. Problem is they leave once other clubs notice them.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 23:47:57
Sorry Ed bit of a misunderstanding i know the Coutinho money isn’t really of relevance I just meant if Liverpool were happy to spend big to bring in the type of player we’ve more so seen linked with united and city over the past while do u think most of those players and agents wudnt be as keen on the move when they know of interest from teams who are more constantly competing for leagues and CL on a regular basis or does the name still have a pull even for European players. Suppose you kind of answered it when u said they remain a well known club and that helps! Sorry if my phrasing of the question wasn’t the best it’s been a long day haha.

{Ed002's Note - Players want success and want to be challenging at the highest level. Right now Liverpool are trying to get back to that and the owners are continuing to provide the financial support - but there is some considerable distance to go.}



10 Jan 2018 23:36:54
With people saying a signing will come in and one which we haven’t been linked to. who do people remember as being the most out of the blue signing we’ve ever had, as in no media coverage about it in the days leading up, never been linked to them before etc.
I’d have to say Raul meireles, that literally came out of nowhere from what I remember and had never once heard him being linked to us or any other team for that matter! Quite liked him as a player too actually for the time he was with us!


1.) 11 Jan 2018 00:17:42
Assaidi. Seemed like not even our own staff knew we had signed him.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 01:02:15
Raúl Meireles was a good player, shame we sold him so early.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 01:06:47
Firmino and Assaidi.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 01:27:25
Assaidi for me, there was nothing in the press about him and then suddenly the club announced the deal, unfortunately he wasn’t very good.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 01:32:13
Assaidi for me, never heard about him before we actually confirmed the signing.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 08:24:36
This one is meant to be a candidate for "most out of the blue", but VVD was actually quite out the blue in a certain way. Yes our pursuit of him was heavily publicised and it was thoroughly speculated for January during the first 6 months of the season, but the manner in which we suddenly secured him before the window even opened was very out of the blue. Everyone was expecting another long and drawn out saga, but nope, it was over just like that.

7.) 11 Jan 2018 08:34:32
VVD, man that one hit me out of the blue ;)

8.) 11 Jan 2018 09:05:07
Firmino, news of that really broke the same day we agreed terms with him and Hoff.

Even if klopp was a fan, which not many managers seem to be due to lack of interest. for the 60m arsenal are seemingly prepared to offer, is he going to come and sit on the bench for that fee or is he going to displace firmino who at the minute is having his best season?

Playing football for a living each week for one of the most successful teams ever on a very healthy salary is seen as being held hostage now is it. {Ed002's Note - It does if he is desperate to leave.}

I don’t like th sound of that strategy myself, feel like surely it could make a player more Greedy and not set up simple goals for others as they will take the chance on themselves if it’s going to get them 30/ 40k! Thankfully firmino is one player who doesn’t suffer from this problem but I could see it causing problems with some other type of characters.

I know players get paid a lot but the amount isn’t relative when you put it like this, if they show up to work each day for training, meetings, gym work, bonding, matches, etc. they should get their wage, goals for a striker should just be a given like defending for a centre back should be a given.

Just my opinion anyway.

Thanks Ed, and thank god for that otherwise someone like Robbie Keane would have racked up some amount of money purely by being transferred every second season 😂.

I’ve often thought this aswell Benny but in a slightly different way or wording.
If a club want to sell player X cos a team is offering an amount that they’re happy with and he isn’t playing much, but the player doesn’t ask for a transfer or hand in a request, I know they get 5% of the transfer fee but does the remaining wage on their contract have to be paid by the club to them and is this something that the selling club would just add into his transfer fee to the buying club? Can Ed02 shed any light on that? Is it the same answer as to Benny question?


{Ed002's Note - No, the remaining wage does not get paid to them.}
