Any truth in the Mandanda rumours? Hoping not to be honest as what Little I've seen of him I can't see our set piece (particularly corners) defensive woes getting any better.


{Ed002's Note - SM is not happy where he is and I am sure would be open to a move. Liverpool's interest has been elsewhere and it is something that would be rather surprising given Klopp decided on his own man over making an approach for him last summer. He will want to be first pick and Klopp has already promised that to someone else.}

1.) 04 Apr 2017 15:34:44
Who has he promised?

{Ed002's Note - Karius.}

2.) 04 Apr 2017 18:08:13
Right mate, of course!

Thanks for the answer! :)

3.) 04 Apr 2017 18:12:38
So do you reckon Karius will be first choice next season? If that is the case, do you reckon Migs will be sold?


{Ed002's Note - The GK situation is difficult. Karius is the number one according to KK, Mignolet is getting on OK but knows he is number 2. KK needs to resolve this but as we know Liverpool are looking around.}

4.) 04 Apr 2017 23:13:06
What's Keegan got to do with it 😄?

{Ed033's Note - It's King Klopp 😋.

5.) 04 Apr 2017 23:52:29
I do rate Klopp and hope Karius is given another chance at some point, but he kinda messed this position up by stating Karius is no.1 and then constantly playing mugs. Not that mugs has done badly, but it can't be good for either players morale.

6.) 05 Apr 2017 06:03:06
I don't see the problem with bringing back Mognolet; Karius needed a little shielding, and in his absence, Mignolet has come in and playing okay. But come summer, like Ed002 has said, he will likely move as Karius will likely start next season as number 1.

7.) 05 Apr 2017 07:59:33
His goalkeepers at Dortmund were abit irratic aswell, klopp just wants bums on the edge of there seats. Let him do his thing as Liverpool are brilliant to watch.

8.) 05 Apr 2017 12:31:56
But Steve Mandanda has been in and out of the Palace team himself yet he'll be wanting a starting spot?

Regardless we will need some kind of experienced next season, either as over for Karius or to compete. Sirigu would be a good shout.

9.) 05 Apr 2017 13:29:37
We need to make an move for Jordan Pickford. He is potentially a future England No.1 and with Sunderlands impending relegation, may come at a reasonable price.

10.) 05 Apr 2017 14:13:40
Pickford is not the solution. We have a young keeper in Karius, all we need is an experienced and for me, Ruffier would do for the short term.

11.) 05 Apr 2017 14:19:28
😂 @ "Mognolet".

I'm going to get a cat called Mognolet and kick it every time Migs throws one in the net 😆.

12.) 05 Apr 2017 15:05:15
Doesn't seem to make many mistakes, is a fantastic shot stopper and has great goalkeeping technique. Plus he's young and homegrown. Ticks all the boxes.

But with the inevitable interest surrounding him, he won't be cheap. And if Karius has been promised the number one spot, would it be worth spending big on another GK?

{Ed001's Note - Pickford looks an excellent future number one, but to suggest he doesn't seem to make many mistakes is false. He has made quite a few errors, which is normal for a young keepers learning the game.}

13.) 04 Apr 2017 20:40:10
Right, but is Migs playing at the moment because Klopp doesn't think that Karius is ready at the moment? And when you say that we're looking around, is that too replace Migs or even looking for a new number 1?

{Ed002's Note - Mignolet has been told that Karius is first choice. Mignolet may wish to leave in the Summer if he doesn't get the support of the manager. Danny Ward is another problem looming for the club.}

14.) 04 Apr 2017 22:10:58
Thanks for the reply ed, i hope we get to see the keeper klopp sees in Karius one day 🤔.

15.) 05 Apr 2017 13:09:13
Hi Ed002. first directing a question to you. go easy. if SM leaves, who are we looking at?

{Ed002's Note - As has been previously explained Liverpool have looked at Pickford and Ruffier.}

16.) 05 Apr 2017 17:10:11
Hey ed02, sorry to butt in, but if one of Pickford or Ruffier is brought in, would that be as a reserve for Karius, and would the player be ok with that? I am confused because while Ruffier seems like a steady, experienced option, Pickford is young and as ed01 said, being a backup would stagnate his development.

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I don't know and would doubt Klopp does.}

17.) 05 Apr 2017 17:24:33
I agree with Gary Neville when he says it's easy to look like a good keeper or defender when you're under pressure constantly. I don't think that Pickford is someone who will ever be a top level keeper, look at the types of goals he concedes, look at the fact that he is poor on crosses (he's easily dominated by bigger centre halves and strikers and given that we're not exactly the biggest team or that great on crosses or dead ball situations bringing in a keeper who is weaker when dealing with crosses than those already employed by the club makes no sense) I also think his concentration isn't that great. He's a mid table player at best and I'd hope we don't make the mistake of buying someone who won't improve the starting 11.

18.) 05 Apr 2017 22:04:34
A bit harsh. He's young and has a lot of potential so I think it's too early to write him off as a top goalkeeper. Same as it's too soon to label him the next Buffon - not that anyone is.

19.) 06 Apr 2017 11:12:07
So Pickford is out of the question now with the ban? Or did i understand the ban wrong?

20.) 06 Apr 2017 16:40:47
It's just youth recruitment that is banned. So Sessegnon is out of the question now. Regrettably we will probably still waste a ton of cash on Pickford.

21.) 06 Apr 2017 23:06:35
Yann Sommer.

22.) 07 Apr 2017 16:41:35
It's klipperty Klopp not king Klopp. 🙃.

23.) 08 Apr 2017 13:32:49
We need an experienced keeper bringing stability tomour backline. We have done and failed with the young keeper strategy.



02 Oct 2016 22:23:08
Hi Eds . loving the way in which Liverpool appear to be gelling this season, what do you reckon the odds are on the team holding together in the January window? Seeing a few recurring stories with regards to potential "swoops" for a few of the Liverpool "aces"


{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't worry about it.}

1.) 03 Oct 2016 12:03:19
Hola everybody! Greetings Eds!
Howbout any incomings?
Do you think we are looking to do any business in the January window or its too early to tell?
Thank you!

{Ed002's Note - It will become clearer but they will not be planning anything major as they did pretty much what they wanted in the summer. A little tweaking may happen.}

2.) 03 Oct 2016 12:45:13
I appreciate your answer!

3.) 03 Oct 2016 16:27:23
You're in for it now ed002.

4.) 03 Oct 2016 22:39:33
and it begins.



09 Aug 2016 14:16:30
Reports from sky are that Palace are in talks again with a view to signing Benteke.


1.) 09 Aug 2016 14:48:18
If there was indeed an initial bid of 25 million rejected and they had agreed personal terms with him then I say sell him and invest that money on a LB

2.) 09 Aug 2016 15:44:58
Seems like Palace are short of strikers, so hold out for the 30 million, and buy that Left Back that we need .

3.) 09 Aug 2016 16:46:44
any thing over £25m is good. better than keeping him with no football and paying his wages.

4.) 09 Aug 2016 16:49:23
reports also saying they are considering Wilfred bony . hope they have benteke.

5.) 10 Aug 2016 00:07:46
I'd they are getting 30m for Bolasie we want our 32.5m.

6.) 10 Aug 2016 00:58:37
I've read arsenal r in 4 bony?



21 Apr 2016 08:34:27
Hi Eds . Is there any news on Danny Ings? with respect to how he is recovering . has he done any training yet? i'd really like to see him grow with Klopp, not sure obviously on Klopps thoughts about him.


{Ed001's Note - Square Tomato has posted up an update about his recovery and that he is back in training of a kind, though it is unlikely he will play this season.}

1.) 21 Apr 2016 09:01:05
I think Ings will thrive under Klopp just as Origi has.

2.) 21 Apr 2016 13:30:50
Fully agree that he will thrive in Klopps system, I think Origi/ Sturridge with Ings will be a great strike partnership.

3.) 21 Apr 2016 14:55:25
He's running and doing short sprints.

4.) 21 Apr 2016 17:05:10
Ings a Fox in box and then we have a origi who is Lion in box. woohoo.

5.) 21 Apr 2016 19:22:56
Who hasn't thrived under klopp? Ings will come back better than ever!
Only benteke hasn't improved I think.
At the start of the season, I didn't enjoy watching any games, but now I enjoy most! It's good to watch again, and playing good football makes players play better.

6.) 22 Apr 2016 10:26:46
Ings is the type of player that Klopp likes, hardworking, intelligent, willing to learn and with a good amount of skill to boot. I think that Sturridge, Origi, Ings and Firmino isn't too shabby for a forward selection, although I wouldn't complain if we added Lacazette.



05 Dec 2014 15:30:20
Hi Eds does it look like we will be able to offload anyone in Jan ? It's ok saying certain individuals are up for grabs but is anyone taking any interest in anyone ?


{Ed002's Note - I think Lucas may leave.}

1.) 05 Dec 2014 16:27:20
I would be really disappointed with that. Lucas is the best DM we currently have and is ideal for us playing at the base of a diamond.

2.) Hi Eds, with Lucas having regained his place in the team lately, you still see him leaving? I hope we have another holding midfielder lined up if that's the case.

{Ed002's Note - I was under the impression all the Liverpool fans wanted him out. Liverpool has no shortage of players already.}

3.) I hope not, Lucas has proved vital to the team. I understand we need to lose a few players but hopefully we've realised he's the best we have at protecting our shaky back 5!

4.) Well this Liverpool fan most certainly does not want him sold unless a suitable replacement is signed.

5.) The have a shortage of DM players ed

6.) Ed what that was and I can only speak for myself, is that I was resigned to Rodger's resilience in not playing Lucas and given that, didn't see a reason not to sell him for him and for the team. But in all fairness Lucas leaving when he had proved to be this valuable is something BR deserves in my opinion. He will think twice, a third time and a forth in the future before dismissing a player over favouritism.

7.) The only thing that worries me with this is if he does go and the rumours are true regarding almost all the rest of the defence leaving next year then we will have another summer of spending and another "new team" to bed in again . No consistency

07 Jun 2017 22:06:17
Hi Eds sorry if this sounds a stupid question . not that I'm trying to make a case for Klopps almighty balls up but is the "Tapping" rule seen in the same light in Germany as it apparently is here? Would this be something Klopp would have known could have caused a collapse of a potential deal?


{Ed025's Note - it is the same rules in germany jcw, klopp and everyone else at the club are well aware of these rules. they just chose to flout them mate..

1.) 07 Jun 2017 23:10:49
Nobody is to blame here but the person responsible for contacting his agent, he wanted Liverpool, Southampton should have been contacted immediately and negotiations should have begun there, not VVD's contract and his agents slice. I completely understand Southampton's frustration. Frankly its not lack of ambition that costs us in the transfer market, its our reputation with previous transfer dealings that make clubs stick the middle finger up, United, City, Chelsea all seem to follow procedure (at least in regards to high profile transfers), why don't we?

2.) 07 Jun 2017 23:12:16
Cheers Ed . I'm just looking for a way to forgive ;)

{Ed025's Note - things will get sorted very soon mate..



07 Jun 2017 19:59:15
I assume that dodgy goings on means this won't be the end of the matter? What an embarrassment, I'm genuinely gutted over this and hope it doesn't come back to bite us for the rest of the summer transfer window . if we still have one and it's not bricked up!




21 May 2017 12:46:09
Hey eds . just wondered what your thoughts are on the youth at liverpool at the moment, i know we've seen glimpses of a few but do you reckon any will break into the first team and gain a regular spot next season? Particularly as we may need more of a rotation if we play champions league.


{Ed001's Note - highly unlikely they would become a regular in one season. There is no one that close to ready, except TAA.}



01 Feb 2017 11:03:25
Hi Eds . now the window has closed and you have nothing to do ;-) . can you say if liverpool did make any attempt to sign anyone in January that maybe we should watch out for in the summer?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Mariano.}

1.) 01 Feb 2017 14:11:40

Do you happen to know if Mariano would consider a summer move to Liverpool?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea, sorry.}

2.) 01 Feb 2017 16:53:16
Anyone know how good he is? Never seen him play before.

3.) 01 Feb 2017 16:15:05
Ehaven't really heard that much about him, given he's only just breaking into the RM first team with a few appearances. would he be a decent fit for the way we play? Would he be an option for the centre only or can he play off the wings?

Appreciate we didn't get him, but there's always summer.

4.) 01 Feb 2017 17:30:26
Just read up a bit on him. The stat that makes you sit up and take notice is 56 goals in 105 games thus far. In the lower leagues yes, but he knows where the net is.

5.) 01 Feb 2017 18:11:32
I haven't seen a lot of him beyond highlights but from that he looks a quick player which I think we lack the most. I really like Sturridge and rate him highly but injuries seem to have taken their toll on him physically, he looks like he's lost a lot of pace so Mariano would give us options in that sense. I'm sad to say I think he might go in the summer, which is probably the best for both parties moving forward.



19 Jan 2017 09:46:06
Eds . what's your opinion with regards to the whole Matip saga? Why has such a dim view been taken by the powers that be over it? Players refuse to play for their country (and in this case I use the term "their country" very loosely) all the time. It infuriates me that they are dictating he can't play for his club! . I must admit I don't like to see an english player "retire" from the national squad especially when they are still the best person for the job but we don't ban them from their domestic club


{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation repeatedly. Liverpool and the player dug this hole for themselves.}

1.) 19 Jan 2017 10:35:38
Though I don't like it. After reading ed2s previous comments on this (God knows how many times) she's right and we're the last people to point the finger we should have done things by the book but we didn't and now it's come back to bite us in the area. It is what it is. Hopefully tomorrow goes well.

2.) 19 Jan 2017 10:35:31
I don't see how the FA of his country of origin has any say on whether he can play at club level or not. Whether LFC had a hand in Matip's decision or not surely its Matip's decision to make?

{Ed002's Note - You are seemingly confused about this matter. I have explained repeatedly what the situation is.}

3.) 19 Jan 2017 11:08:54
Sorry Ed2 - I found what I was looking for, I still think its ridiculous rule . but rules are rules I suppose

Eds, brilliant explanation thanks . but what exactly is the point of a release clause? If the club doesn't want to sell then why would they include one? I understand if it's used as a deterrent but we see time and time again that clubs including LFC go in with bids under that anyway.

Because owners never go back on their word do they . and as for not wanting to spend 70m on VVD, well neither would I. but im not. your not either. it's not my money so id let them spend what ever they want. can't win with some people, don't spend enough 1 day and spend too much the next. Will VVD improve the team? Yes . who's better out there that actually WANTS to move to LFC?

I think Walsh was mainly the reason they did what they did last year but its still a shame, unfortunately it was inevitable, yes its the players not performing but that has to be managed and obviously Ranieri cant.
