Hey Eds, forgot to say, Merry New Year! :)
Just read sth about Emil Forsberg supposedly being called a 'Liverpool target'. It's a new one onj me. Have we any actual interest? Just his agent stirring things up?
Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - there is interest from us and a few others, Spurs I believe are another. As I understand it RBL were keen to say he was not for sale but the player and his agent would like a move. I don't know if that will mean we move for him or not, we certainly were not going to while he was 'not for sale' as RBL have pots of cash and would have need more than we could afford to tempt them.}

1.) 04 Jan 2017 20:38:05
Great answer. Thanks so much.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

2.) 08 Jan 2017 14:44:02
Do u know why Harry Wilson is not getting a look in Ed, U23 captain and scoring plenty of goals? Does Klopp not rate him or is it more he's physically or mentally not strong enough yet?

{Ed001's Note - he is just a bit behind some of the others for now, in the pecking order, due to their performances when they got a chance earlier in the season. He is defo in Klopp's thinking for the future.}

3.) 08 Jan 2017 21:35:56
Thanks for your time Ed

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

4.) 09 Jan 2017 14:31:23
Ed001 - I've read it is RBL's policy to not block a player from moving to a better opportunity, is that your understanding as well? With RBL being a surprise title contender in the Bundesliga I would think RBL would like to hold on to Forsberg regardless of whether it looks like they are blocking the player from a better opportunity or not. Thanks for your time, Ed!

{Ed001's Note - it is not about blocking, it is about being the one Forsberg would choose from all his options available, if he was within our budget. They would be able to command a large price for him, with there being a lot of interest. I expect him to move, in the summer, if not now, I just think he will be out of our price range.}



22 Nov 2016 14:38:43
Tried the search engine, Ed. Couldn't see anywhere if you said, but does the Julian Brandt link have any truth or possibility to it?
Thanks a mil as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg with Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showing interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013. Liverpool certainly took a look at that time as well. He moved to Bayer Leverkusen in Janauary 2014 and continued to attract attention from Arsenal who made an approach in the summer of 2014. This past summer he was not for sale. He is still young and no doubt this January will see further interest but I suspect he will stay where he is. There has been no approach from Liverpool.}

1.) 23 Nov 2016 07:52:04
I think you mixed up Wolfsburg and Leverkusen.

{Ed002's Note - Where?}

2.) 23 Nov 2016 12:44:53
First sentence Ed002, {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg with Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showing interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013.

I assume it should have read {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Bayer Leverkusen with, Wolfsburg, Manchester United etc as he plays for Leverkusen. No biggie though as it's obvious what you meant.

{Ed002's Note - That was in the summer of 2013 when he played for Wolfsburg, so it is correct.}



31 Aug 2016 10:16:27
Sakho just turned down Besiktas loan. To be fair, I wouldn't want to live in Turkey right now either.
Somewhere like Valencia would be an interesting move for him. Or West Ham maybe if he's to stay in England.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 31 Aug 2016 11:01:22
Bit surprised PSG aren't in for a loan, as Luiz may go to Chelsea.

{Ed002's Note - It is what Sakho wants.}

2.) 31 Aug 2016 11:01:54
Hmm, except Valencia are going for Mangala and West Ham want Micah Richards. I'd advise them both to go for Sakho instead, but they probably won't listen to me. Not least because I'm not actually within earshot of them. Can you pass on the tip for me, please Eds? ;)

3.) 31 Aug 2016 13:52:49
Give it a try Jurgen Meister.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 13:47:57
Hey Ed2. is there any chance of him getting back to PSG today.?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "any chance" questions.}

5.) 31 Aug 2016 15:22:07
Seems he is set to stay. PSG don't want him then?

Hope he wises up and can smooth things over with Klopp.



26 Jul 2016 10:44:37
Allan Rodrigues is training with Hertha Berlin ahead of an expected season long loan. I think this would be a great move for him as they are a well run and coached club who will hopefully be playing in the Europa League should they qualify. The Bundesliga is a really good standard and if he can establish himself there we will have a real player o our hands.

Jurgen Meister



19 Jul 2016 09:16:35
G'day Eds,
Do you know if there is any truth that Newcastle are interested in Lucas? He said some time ago he would like to stay in England and a reunion with Rafa just seems like a nice idea all round.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - Rafa would love to sign him, but he needs to get rid of some first.}

1.) 19 Jul 2016 10:16:05
Could use him as a bargaining chip to get GW lol.

2.) 19 Jul 2016 10:41:02
This is certainly possible with Wijnaldum coming this way. Selling a DM and buying a B2B player.

3.) 19 Jul 2016 10:51:06
Lucas is too good for the championship.

4.) 19 Jul 2016 11:52:16
Wijnaldum is not a box to box player, he does no tracking back! did you watch Newcastle at all last season?

5.) 19 Jul 2016 10:40:57
Cant see Lucas being willing to drop down to the championship though! I'd hate to see him leave personally as I love Lucas, but unfortunately it doesn't seem as though he's going to get the minutes he needs to stay :(

6.) 19 Jul 2016 12:14:46
Second that, Lucas is one of my favourite players! would be sad to see him go, but i'm sure the club won't be sentimental like the rest of us.

7.) 19 Jul 2016 12:27:02
Newcastle or Turkey. I think I would settle for the championship thanks.

8.) 19 Jul 2016 12:48:43
I'd be confident that he would help them get promotion and be back in the Prem in one season. He's a great guy and a fine player. Watching him making forward runs and actually get into the box these last few friendlies has been a joy. He did used to score goals back in Brazil. I think he deserves to be somewhere that he is loved and appreciated and It'd be great to see the welcome he'd get on his return to Anfield in 17/ 18. (or in a cup match this season) :)

9.) 19 Jul 2016 18:05:41
I love Lucas too but he's far too inconsistent season after season. A move to the Magpies could do him good. At the end of the day I would back them to come straight back up then he would be in the PL under a good manager like Rafa, worth the gamble for Lucas in my opinion.

Gday, Eds. I understand when clubs with deep pockets are interested in our best players it's very difficult to stop them from leaving. But I for one really hope both Couts and Firmino stay for many years and win us shelves of silverware. Can't abide any of these idiots talking crap about Couts not being very good anyway and Can being 'indisciplined. '

So, my question is about Emre. Can you shed some light on why you're mentioning him as a possible departure, please? I used search and couldn't find where it was discussed. He's unhappy or what's the story?
Thanks a million, as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool add another central midfield player it would need to be at the expense of another. It is no more than that. The club cannot keep adding players without others leaving.}

1.) 14 Nov 2016 09:54:36
I don't think it has to anything to do with deep pockets. Successful clubs have money to spend, its no rocket science. Both the Milan clubs have new owners but wouldn't break any bank to buy any big names. FFP is a big hurdle for every club to manage.

2.) 14 Nov 2016 12:08:57
Ah I see. Of course, I know what you mean. But I'm a big fan of Can and thought Klopp was, too. Also, he's first choice atm so I thought it'd be strange to let him go.
Thanks for the response, Ed002.



01 Sep 2016 10:31:52
SO, well done Eds!

Now, after all that, we are 19 players lighter with 13 out on loan. Amazing to think that our squad was SO bloated that we could actually shed THIRTY TWO players and still not look like Hull. We now have a squad of roughly 30 'first-team-ready' players and an integrated U23s squad.

I think we have a pretty good foundation to build on now. I really hope in the coming windows we continue to only sign players that improve on or fill a gap in the squad and avoid signing players for the sake of it. When I think of some of the rubbish that has been and gone over the last 10 years alone it's embarrassing.

Now let's get behind the lads that are there and hope the training really bears fruit.
Thanks again to all the Eds, really reliable as always in helping us navigate through the transfer rumour storm. :)

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}



31 Aug 2016 15:33:30
So am I right Wisdom and Alberto are the only confirmed departures so far today?

It's one thing being stuck with decent players like Sakho and Markovic but if Balotelli is not off the books by midnight it's a big cockup. Just tie a ribbon around him and say thank you!

Jurgen Meister

1.) 31 Aug 2016 15:53:38
Balo has completed his medical at Nice, and will sign for them in the next few hours .

2.) 31 Aug 2016 16:00:05
Wisdom, Balotelli and Luis Alberto will all leave today. Markovic, Sakho and Ilori however will probably stay.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 16:07:36
Can markovic play lb!

4.) 31 Aug 2016 16:11:37
I'm happy for Sakho to stay as I think he's probably our best CB. Hopefully if he does stick around he can win Klopp over and get his place back!

5.) 31 Aug 2016 16:55:53
If Sakho can't discipline himself and be professional after all this time, I suspect it won't be any different this time too.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 17:13:42
If lovren or matip injured then you only have joe and klavan as back up so surely sakho could play some part if he stays.

7.) 31 Aug 2016 18:00:47
I'm ok with Sakho and Markovic staying. I wouldn't mind Markovic being given a chance in cup games to see how he does on the wing, so Long as doesn't prevent Ojo from getting his fair share of opportunities. Also happy if Sakho stays because a couple of injuries at CB and we'll be Glad to have him around.

8.) 31 Aug 2016 18:10:54
Sahko has to sort his head out first, if not, he will be with the U23`s till season`s end.

9.) 31 Aug 2016 18:42:28
Markovic going to play in Portugal, just heard,

10.) 31 Aug 2016 19:23:45
Good for him, if it`s true. he needs to be playing because he won`t get a game here.



31 Aug 2016 14:11:20
Reading Markovic will probably stay for now. Is that so Eds? I know there are some pretty cheap flights from Belgrade to Milan.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Asking price is too high - a loan might be possible. Another complete cock up.}

1.) 31 Aug 2016 16:02:42
It will be an exciting U23 side this season Ed002; Markovic, Ilori, Sakho!

{Ed002's Note - It will indeed.}

2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:18:20
I don`t know why we want top money for players every man and his dog knows we want rid of? It is pointless. it`s like selling an over-used card for the price of a new one. Just awful business management.



31 Aug 2016 12:58:27
Jerome Sinclair has been made available for loan. That went well.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 31 Aug 2016 13:48:01
We could get him in on loan 😎.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 13:51:13
As the saying goes - "be careful what you ask for, because sometimes you'll get it".

3.) 31 Aug 2016 14:13:05
Ha Jurgen, the grass is not always greener, if only he had put his heart into our club .

Leekuanyew, it's really not as simple as that. I'm sure they would give us oodles of cash for our top players, but who would you sell? There's nobody I'd want to lose from the current 1st team.
Sakho perhaps? A cool 20 mil for him would be nice, but I don't think he fancies China just yet.
Sure, certain players like Lovren or Moreno could be replaced with upgrades if somebody paid us over the odds for them, but I don't see that happening either. It's a certain profile of player that they want in China, but we don't have mercenaries like Oscar, Witsel, Hulk or Tevez for example. Perhaps only Sturridge would make any sense, and sure enough, if we got a whopper offer, I'd sell.

Yeah and the registered fee for Sakho at the same time was £16.15. So I'd expect Liverpol to accept something close enough tho that rather than the £20 that is being reported.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - The registered fee is not in £. Sorry.}

TM reports the purchase fee was £6.38m, but whatever, no point getting bogged down with figures. The main thing is he can finally get his career back on track. Hope he becomes a real success, and not just because of the reported 35% sell-on clause. ;)

We have 3 strikers not including Ings and no room for another. Klopp isn` t in the habit of spending money on a player just to take up space in the squad. Personally, i hope Toni Gomes at least makes the bench for Plymouth.

Yeah i find it strange that a forward is supposedly our priority. Top scorers in the league, most GA of all the top 6. Ehh, which priority?
De Vrij would be great! Plus Begovic and ok, a left back. Perhaps Juanma? Hope he makes the squad for Plymouth.

Pogba so blatantly grabbing and throwing Hendo to the ground in the box really annoyed me. And instead they get a free-kick in a dangerous position!? >: (

Any chance of retrospective punishment for sth like that eds? Since the ref obviously didn't see it. Totally not ok imo.

Those people are not real fans. Just naysayers who think that playing football is as simple as pushing a few buttons on a playstation joypad.
I've been going around very happy the last couple of days reflecting on that win, it really showed that the team can pick it up when not on-song and overcome different teams with different tactics. Swansea did really well first half and worked their socks off. But I think Liverpool earned their bit of luck (Swansea's missed chances) and it was exactly the kind of game we used to lose limply to end a good run of form with a kerflump.

I'm from Dublin but living in Athens 3 years now. Atehns is a complicated mess so GPS and maps on my phone is an essential daily tool. No idea how much time I wasted in the past with the trial and error method of finding your way around. Although, the GPS lady does regularly try to drive me off cliffs or into walls. I think she just likes to check I'm paying attention from time to time. :)

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - women can never be trusted mate, I bet even the GPS lady spends her life watching CSI etc to learn how to get away with bumping off men who annoy her....}
