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.

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.



21 Jul 2019 23:39:52
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.



16 Jul 2019 12:06:54
Ed1, what do you make of Klopp’s apparent idea to turn Lallana into a deeper midfielder, do you think he poses the right skills and attributes to succeed in that sort of role? Was thinking you could maybe look at it as though he was a player we were scouting for that role, similar to the way you break down a player profile?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - added that to the to do list mate.}

1.) 16 Jul 2019 12:15:21
thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

2.) 16 Jul 2019 12:38:39
Can’t tackle though.

3.) 16 Jul 2019 14:38:46
Could be a good one to do a podcast on Ed001? Not much research needed as you already have an idea as to what you want to say. So can just talk into the mic for 15-20 mins to give your own in depth opinion on it.

Red Sandman.

{Ed001's Note - might be a stretch to talk for that long on Lallana!}

4.) 16 Jul 2019 14:58:51
Maybe you could take a page out of Ed002's book and add some musical flair and sing to us? You teased us a bit with your "Benny Baller joke of the week" jingle - you loyal audience are left wanting more!

Red Sandman.

{Ed001's Note - sing? Oh mate I couldn't do that to you all. It would leave all other music sounding out of tune by comparison....}

5.) 16 Jul 2019 15:00:35
This is all pre season talk, we all know he won't have a place in this team when the season starts.

6.) 16 Jul 2019 15:14:00
I think Lallana will be someone that may be a target for mid table clubs as we approach the end of the transfer window.
I just don't see him getting that many games. Maybe towards the busy Christmas period but we have Fabs, Hendo, Wiji, Milner, Keita, Ox and Shaq to cover 3 positions. Then you will have the younger lads who will want an opportunity too.
Obviously if he stays it's great for that additional option but if he wants regular game time a move is probably the sensible option.

7.) 16 Jul 2019 15:49:22
The Lallana conversion makes no sense when Marko Grujic is available and better suited with a contract until 2023. Just my opinion. I like AL and he's certainly a good squad member willing to do whatever is required but I think he needs a bit of freedom to move and use his skills that I can't see him getting with our set-up and available players. I guess we'll see.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 17:59:37
Or does he have the quick feet to find himself some space in midfield when he’s facing our goal and we’re being pressed, Reynard? I guess we’ll find out in Ed’s profile!

9.) 16 Jul 2019 18:17:21
Ed if you have a skin full first probably take you 10-15 just to pronounce his name.

{Ed002's Note - But no work permit and zero chance of getting one under a "talant" exemption.}

11.) 16 Jul 2019 19:29:52
I have a hard time believing this Lallana as a #6 thingy. I don't believe it will see the light of day cos we already have Fab and Hendo and to some extent Wiji, who can play the #6 much better than Lallana can. Even Jorginho who he is being compared to, is more of a DLP than a DM a la Fab or Hendo so not sure what all this is about, really. I will say that this is preseason hence, it is the time to try diff. things so in the end, it is what it is.

12.) 16 Jul 2019 22:01:25
Sorry to ask a stupid question, but how are grujic and many south Americans able to play in Europe but not the UK while we are still (for now) a member state of the EU.

{Ed002's Note - They have to qualify for work permits - and rules change from country to country.}

13.) 17 Jul 2019 21:45:51
Im not sure about his ability to play a deeper role and with fabhino in the team it doesn't seem like we will see it much. But lallana can tackle. Maybe not well enough to play as a dcm.

14.) 17 Jul 2019 23:14:20
Me neither, Robbie.

15.) 18 Jul 2019 05:52:26
With AL in last 2 games against weak opposition I feel klopp was just using him in that role to gradually get him up to speed after 2 seasons without any rhythm, confidence and fitness. He could get a lot of the ball and have more time to play.

Against any sort of top tier team he'd never play there. Maybe only be used in cup games if playing league 1 or 2 weak teams.



01 Jun 2019 22:38:30
Yes yes yes! Thank you Jurgen and the owners! What an end to the season. We are the champions, champions of Europe. Enjoy the summer everyone, the premier league to follow I think. Ed 1, yes my friend, yes!

{Ed001's Note - my poor neighbours!}

1.) 01 Jun 2019 23:41:06
Exactly my thoughts too Ed1 mate, bloody hell after Origi's goal I went ape sh*t mate, I'd actually been out for a cig and when I came back in just as I was about to sit back down, he scored lol amazing, my god, just amazing! I aren't going to sleep tonight but bugger it, AJ fight soon, you only live once! I can't calm down after that, I'm so fkn over the moon. YESSS!



13 May 2019 19:22:24
One for ed1 I would guess. I was wondering where AOC is up to in terms of fitness. Obviously he was on the bench yesterday but only came on in the 88th minute. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to give him at least a 10-15 min run out, if he were to be on the bench for the final he would presumably benefit from some time on the pitch. He got about 20 mins I think the other week? I appreciate he is being eased back but 2 mins plus stoppage time seems a little pointless. I noted he wasn’t on the bench against Barca, does that imply he isn’t really being considered in a true game situation at the moment and perhaps therefore won’t make the bench for the final?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - it depends on the options, but no he is not really ready.}

1.) 13 May 2019 20:14:28
Assuming a fully fit team, bar Keita, we could still have origi Sturridge Shaqiri Milner/ gini Gomez and migs on the bench.

I’d actually start matip in the final, with Gomez lacking match fitness and us being on such a run with matip starting.

2.) 13 May 2019 23:25:02
much stronger bench than last years final for sure.

3.) 14 May 2019 03:34:28
I’d be starting

Trent - Matip - VVD - Robbo
Hendo - Fabinho - Milner
Salah - Firmino - Mane

Bench :

Harsh on Gini and Gomez perhaps but I think we need the energy of Milner rather than the control of Gini, and Matip has proven most of us wrong and been really solid last few weeks. No need to risk a new CB pairing in the final. Shaq, Ox and Origi give us plenty of attacking options off the bench, no need for Sturridge.

4.) 14 May 2019 06:40:49
I agree with your team, give hendo the freedom to get forward and drag players away from salah. Salahs return to goals after his drought came from moment Henderson has been preventing him constantly being double marked.

Gini and Milner is a hard call but I love milners experience, if he plays towards the left he often sits in slightly giving robbo the freedom of the wing, him and mane could get real joy from a confidence sapped incapable trippier.

I feel our best approach is to play very wide. The first 45 mins at anfield we tore them apart attacking the wings until poch changed his system, I'm sure he won't start with the same approach but spurs lack genuine wingers so I feel their full backs can always be got at.

My one concern would be if fabinho would need a deep lying partner. Spurs got success in over running us beyond midfield in that second half, alli and Eriksson can hurt any team when picking the ball up between midfield and defence

It will be a great game no doubt and I hope people stop getting overconfident. Yes I back us and fancy us but we need to show more respect to a good spurs team playing the biggest game in their history.

Wouldn’t be a transfer window with a quick purchase from Southampton, would it.

To loan or buy ed? A year under Bielsa’s tutelage could
make or break their careers with us, they could learn so much that could be of benefit to us, I think.

There are suggestions that a new rail station could be opened in the area. I believe that that would be one of the major factors that would help the club with its plans. Hopefully the club, and Everton’s new proposed stadium can be catalysts for a real and serious regeneration of our city, in areas that could do with investment. Both clubs are key to the overall success of the city, which is why I would love to see Everton back in European football soon which helps out all the cabs, busses, pubs, restaurants and hotels.

I think that the fact they didn’t sign Alves and bought 2 players instead, and followed that with “in hindsight. ” which is exactly what they said when they decided against buying quality over quantity a few years earlier just shows a real lack of learning lessons.

When I was a kid, you would have been adding new balance to that list of manufacturers. Perhaps goala will turn out to be massive in 30 years and be our supplier then!
