Did you hear that from "monkey sponge" on Twitter by any chance?


2.) 15 Feb 2016 12:19:00
its in the Echo now too.


3.) 15 Feb 2016 12:25:34
Sakho he literally just said Sky Sports, not twitter. Sky Sports have just released this through there app and SSNHQ.


4.) 15 Feb 2016 12:43:33
Not surprised really because sahko is NOT boss.


5.) 15 Feb 2016 15:12:31
sorry mate I replied to somebody about liverpools interest in Leon Goretzka not about Matip joining Liverpool.

There was a poster on here who works/ worked for opta. I was just wondering how this likely win percentage that amazon are using is calculated. Is it specific to the two teams, does it factor in certain stats from the specific game, or is it simply based on the score and the time of the match?
Hope you’re still around or perhaps one of the Ed’s would know.
Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - that was Reid The Red I think. I have no idea how this AWS junk works, as it has been shown to be nonsense in F1 I would take little notice of it to be honest.}

That is indeed me. It's calculated via a number of methods - form, head-to-head record, home/ away records etc, and it of course changes as the game goes on based on time remaining, the way the game is going (obviously a team's chance of winning increases after they score but also things like possession, shots etc do affect it), even a team's record late on in matches (do they score or concede a lot of late goals? ) .

I don't know exactly how this is all calculated but like Ed001 says, take it with a pinch of salt. It's just meant as a bit of fun to say, historically/ statistically speaking, the current likelihood of a team getting a result. You can't predict football or any sport for that matter, so it's just a rough guide.

{Ed0666's Note - the only thing I can confidently predict in a world full of nuances and anomalies is that Eds 001 will never be a 32 inch waist again.

Appreciate the response Reed👍.

Hypothetical question, what would happen if ref went over to the pitch side monitor to review a decision, off his own bat. Would he just get benched for future games, would the replay actually be shown to him?

It’s all irrelevant now, but I was curious what the plan for Bobby Duncan was, going into the transfer window? Was it Liverpool’s intention to keep him here and they never considered loaning him at all, they obviously turned down a loan and then sold him (presumably sold him after what went on) . I was just curious as to why they weren’t open to loaning him out if there had been some sort of rumblings about him wanting a loan, I mean there must have been civilised discussions at some point before his agent went full on nuclear in the press, no?

Liverpool sign young player to extended contracts before sending them on loan. The idea being to maintain their value and/ or provide them with a secure future at the club beyond the loan spell if they develop sufficiently. If Duncan wasn't going to sign a new contract then there was no point in sending him on loan for a year or wasting time and energy developing him.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue with Duncan.}


2.) 03 Sep 2019 11:16:44
I think it was a case of he thought he was better than he actually is. He thinks he is first team ready and should be in the squad ahead of our front 3. He did the same thing at City. Player greed I'm afraid is very much were we are at these days.

Klopp has said that Naby has returned with “a totally different body language”. Now if he can just sort out the spoken language, we can all relax!

Let's hope so, OP cos he is just too talented to not come good, IMO.

I was interested to read James Miller’s comments that his representatives asked the club last year if they wanted to discuss a new contract but the club declined at that time. With just a season left, and the way he performed last year I would have thought Liverpool would have been open to discussions over the summer, admittedly they might not offer terms that he would want, but he seems an invaluable member of the squad still, who’s as fit as a fiddle. One of the things I suppose it shows is that he is keen to remain at LFC (i presume it’s not just a case of him protecting himself financially) as there were suggestions that had Leeds been promoted he might look to leave us for them for playing time and it being his club. Do any of the Ed’s know if the club are planning to offer him new terms?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know what the plans are but I suspect they will hang on to let his contract run down and decide what he wants to do. It makes no sense to offer a new contract.|


1.) 22 Jul 2019 22:04:57
That makes sense, Ed02. There's no rush, IMO.

Gini has been outstanding this season, can’t believe Klopp would be happy for him to leave, for me he’s undoubtedly in our starting XI.

It’s the new structure that the shirt deal that people are referring to mate, probably far too complicated for the Ed’s to go into specific numbers for us, but roughly speaking we get a smaller upfront fee than we did from NB but hope to ultimately make more money by increasing shirt sales. I believe that the ‘Asia’ market was one of Liverpool’s important factors in wanting to go with Nike and so to us lay people it looks like a well thought out prospect, decent player, increased LFC awareness in Japan therefore more short sales and more revenue. God knows if any of that is actually what happens though 🤷‍♂️.

Cheers Ed, you’re not usually wrong about players so if your even half on board with it, it’s a good sign for me.

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - if those games are a good indicator, then he is probably the best option I have seen to slot into our team in recent months.}

Ed1, what do you make of this as a potential transfer? A good addition?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - looks a very good player but I have only seen him against us and he only looked good when we sat back. Just look at the second half, he was anonymous. So difficult to judge him as they were not giving him the ball and he was not able to get it back on his own. I certainly would not be against signing him from what I saw, though his end product was very inconsistent, at best.}

I agree port red, he’d want astronomical wages and then that really does open Pandora’s box.

I think Mbappe will get a run out in the league cup and the under23’s until he settles in England.

Fully agree with that Drogie, in any other era it would be wrapped up, but city demonstrated last year the sort or run they’re capable of and that’s why Klopp will be so wary of slip ups, like when he went absolutely ballistic on the touch line yesterday day when we were getting sloppy. They always say that the most difficult part is crossing that final line, in a way the pressure hasn’t really started yet, that’ll happen as we get within a couple of wins of the title. The experience that the whole club has got from the last 2 years should stand them in foot stead though, but I am very much one of those not wanting anyone to jinx things.

Perhaps what should considered is not so much how Liverpool have benefitted but how much incorrect referring decisions could have cost us. Take yesterday for example, Liverpool would have had a perfectly good goal ruled out and wolves would have had what was, at best, a dubious right decision given for them. Liverpool could have lost that 1-0.

Lfc hopeful

{Ed025's Note - the referees association and the pundits of TV would not allow that to happen hopeful, they would have had the game replayed or played on until liverpool won...liverpool losing is not in the script mate.. :)
