Ed2 may i ask you about Sturridge please mate? At the start of the window did the club make him available then realized that there is no one out there to target as a replacement, don't get me wrong I am more than happy we kept Sturridge even better if he can stay fit for large parts this season.

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - No. if they had looked to another striker he would have been the one sold.}

I saw Liam Neeson getting into a hackney outside Like Street Station last night, he was heard saying something about Coutinho and kidnapping Spaniards coming from overseas, then he said something about skills and how he would find them, so not to be Taken too lightly these apparent Barcelona rumours oh by the way virgin poster, well not actually virgin, I haven't posted for years, was going to post earlier but the Transfer Window got put through by the local youths.



27 Aug 2017 09:45:38
Hi eds any truth in the rumour that Migs as had an offer from Napoli?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. It is fair to say Napoli are looking for a goalkeeper as Pepe Reina is likely to depart and they have been regretting sending Nikita Contini on loan - although he is far from an ideal replacement. They have their eyes on taking a very high-end young goalkeeper next season but are aware an English side have held numerous discussions about taking him in the future and have a tentative financial agreement in place - all of this meaning they are looking for another goalkeeper again. They have a player in mind - it is not Mignolet and I very much doubt Liverpool would be looking to sell if they were interested as it would leave them short.}

1.) 27 Aug 2017 10:12:10
Migs just rested then ed? Seems strange.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea. As I say, I am not aware of him having an "offer" froM Napoli and I can't see Liverpool wanting to go looking for a goalkeeper this late in the day - Napoli are less than pleased about having to do so themselves.}

2.) 27 Aug 2017 10:09:10
Is this donnaroma, if so, do you mind asking which team have an agreement with him? City, Arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - No it is not Donnarumma.}

3.) 27 Aug 2017 10:30:00
I would not mind having Pepe Reina as our third GK at all.

4.) 27 Aug 2017 11:07:25
2 decent keepers is plenty. how often does a 3rd choice keeper make the bench, let alone actually play.

{Ed002's Note - You will find all Premier League clubs have three decent goalkeepes in their squad. Klopp has set his stall out with his goalkeepers (perhaps keeping quiet about the whole subject would have been advisable, but he didn't). If Mignolet were to be sold, and I know nothing at all of this "offer" from Napoli that is being suggested, Liverpool need another goalkeeper - whether you think all they need is two or not.}

5.) 27 Aug 2017 11:13:30
Could Liverpool u23 gk be the 3rd choice and play for the u23s?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, if Liverpool wish to weaken their side until Adam Bogdan is fit.}

6.) 27 Aug 2017 11:14:07
I would not mind having Pepe Reina as our first choice GK at all.

7.) 27 Aug 2017 11:21:19
Fair enough ed. if that's the case it would need to be an old bloke like Manninger that isn't going to be ahead of either Karius or Ward in the pecking order.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, Manchester City has Bravo, Spurs Vorm, Bournemouth Boruc, Southampton Taylor, Chelsea Eduado etc.. It is a system that works well for most clubs as they can share experience and help out the younger keepers at the club and at least one side always supports them in getting their coaching badges and have them work with the youth sides. I understand reading some of the replies that many of the Grunts don't realise or understand such things. For me the issue Liverpool has is with the third choice Ward. He should have been loaned back to Huddersfield (who wanted him) and he would be getting some fantastic experience at the highest level and Liverpool could have gone and got another Manninger. For me, they could have let Ward have his loan and recruited an out of contract home grown goalkeeper like Ross Turnbull and have been in great shape.}

8.) 27 Aug 2017 11:59:49
I have to say Ed002 myself and a few other fan's were just saying how ridiculous it was not to send Ward out on loan as you say to get some very valuable experience. We were saying as well that we can see that if/ when Ward got/ get's a chance that there's a very good keeper in there.

{Ed002's Note - I have no doubts about that. A very well respected coach called Gordon Marshall said that Ward has temperament and ability to make it at the highest level - and that is indeed praise. The events of January 2016 were indeed a set back and I really think it would have been wise to let him back on loan this summer - but no.}

9.) 27 Aug 2017 12:03:34
Hope he goes .2 keepers is enough. Next .

{Ed002's Note - You need to get Klopp out then - he is insisting on three.}

10.) 27 Aug 2017 12:18:05
Absolutely agree ed. Ward should have been getting game time at Huddersfield. Would have been excellent experience for him and we'd be getting back a great young keeper who would have improved no end. As it is what we have done is a complete cluster ****.

11.) 27 Aug 2017 12:29:21
And he was first choice. Seems almost like sabotage on klopp's part to the lad's career or at least poor man-management. You request that teams give your loans amble playing time, and Huddersfield who are willing to do so at the Premier league not doubt are not considered.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure it wasn't deliberate.}

12.) 27 Aug 2017 12:55:53
I agree on having 3 keepers but surely losing mignolet would not be the end of the world, even if it would leave us "short" until at least jan.

{Ed002's Note - What is happening in January?}

13.) 27 Aug 2017 13:06:30
That would be the transfer window where we could sign a new keeper if needs be.

14.) 27 Aug 2017 13:07:46
Like Ed, I said in the offseason that Ward should have been let go on loan to further get experience in the PL this season BUT bizarrely, Klopp chose to keep him. He may yet still go out on loan this window but only time will tell.

As for Migs, we should have binned him when we had the chance and given Karius (Klopp's choice, mind you) a real chance at the job for a season and a half at best, to see if he was up to the job. Migs has cost us goals and games and points in the past and we should stopped the bleeding then, like Pep did with Hart. Cos at least then, you can fully focus on getting Karius ready to take the reins and Migs won't be there top cost us goals anymore.

Now, no one really knows what he has got as 10 games where he made two mistakes, does not mean his is bad, nor does it mean he is good enough and Migs has reverted bag to his flapping and clapping at crosses again.

15.) 27 Aug 2017 19:36:05
If Mignolet goes and we need a third keeper for cover, Given is looking for a club.

16.) 27 Aug 2017 22:29:42
Sorry Fitzy didn't spot this until I'd said same above. Given would be a good call, model pro and still a solid keeper.



23 Aug 2017 09:45:48
Eds are we interested in Howedes of Schalke?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Liverpool approach to Schalke for Benedikt Howedes at this time - I assume if they do it would be as an alternative to van Dijk.}

1.) 23 Aug 2017 15:25:28
Again with the Howedes questions -. - use the search people xD he is too slow for our high line and at the age where he is only going to get slower 😖
Hope he isn’t VVDs alternative like 😂😂.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 15:43:27
Please use below template going forward :)

Q: Ed's are we interested in "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE"

A: I am not aware of any Liverpool approach to "INSERT CLUB NAME HERE" for "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE" at this time - I assume if they do it would be as an alternative to "INSERT PLAYER B's NAME HERE"



21 Aug 2017 21:24:15
Hi eds any truth that we have agreed a deal to sign Kovacic from Real?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool and Real Madrid agreeing such a deal, sorry.}

1.) 22 Aug 2017 01:06:16
Kovacic? Where did that one come from?

2.) 22 Aug 2017 01:14:09
Hopefully we go for him next season when we replace Coutinho. Don't see how Real can guarantee him first team football with Casemiro, Modric, Isco and Kroos in the squad.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 05:47:05
An alternative to Keita? We are looking at one Central midfielder! Aren't we?

4.) 22 Aug 2017 07:31:25
Seems like regurgitated news from the 2015 window, before he left Inter to join Real Madrid.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 08:27:24
Was it Harry who posted this rumour cos the Kovacic thingy is SOOOO 2015?

6.) 22 Aug 2017 09:44:00
Someone said this to me today too.

7.) 22 Aug 2017 10:05:03
Just a rumour that apparently he would be happy to join IF we sold Coutinho and needed a replacement.

No fee or agreement is in place and Juve have also apparently been quoted some crazy figure like £80m plus for Kovacic at some point this summer which means that Liverpool probably wouldn't bother anyway.

Just news for the sake of news but nothing in it.

8.) 22 Aug 2017 13:23:09
Sod kovacievic we need defenders.

9.) 22 Aug 2017 13:54:15
Kovacic is quality addition to the depleted midfield. What's with verbal agreement anyway? Just get him already, we have less than 8 days left. come on man.

10.) 22 Aug 2017 14:43:55
Looks a really good player. Everyone knows we have a slightly thin squad but then people say we already have enough midfielders. We have a lot of midfielders, yes, but we play with five. LW LM CM RM RW. We need a CB yes and I still believe we will sign vvd. It's been on the cards all summer. Our new LB looks brilliant and I have to say, I did call that one. Kovacic would be a class addition. Forget about the word "replacement" coz Phil is going nowhere😏 we could do with a bit more creativity to feed our classy forward line. I don't think we will see a game where one of Mane, firmino or salah doesn't score.

Don't worry about the CB problem. That fact we haven't moved for someone other than VVD tells me we have all but got our man. Also, people scream that we need defenders. Let's not forget the last game we played we had a clean sheet and JM was immense against a pretty dangerous attacking team. Palace are lacking on a lot of areas, but a forward pair of Benteke and Saha is as good as anyone. Liverpool shut them out.

Kovacic is the sort of addition I've been waiting for all summer. I really hope it happens.

To end, I predict we are going to win the league. City aren't going to gell straight away. United have had a couple of decent results against relegation fodder but their weaknesses are going to be exposed when they come up against decent opposition and again, their team spirit will disappear. Chelsea will struggle to get in the top four and I think Arsenal and liverpool will be fighting it out for the title. We are the two most settled clubs. The others are full of new faces who aren't used to getting battered at West brom or stoke. Physically. Lacazette and Mane fighting it out for the golden boot. Spurs europa league qualification and then next year we move for Deli Ali.

11.) 22 Aug 2017 15:34:16
You do realize Zaha didn't play due to injury?

are you seriously saying we are going to win the league based on beating Crystal palace 1-0.

give it 20 games before jumping to that conclusion! we drew 3-3 to watford last week, so I think a bit of patience is necessary.

12.) 22 Aug 2017 16:37:24
Got to love the optimism. Lol.

13.) 22 Aug 2017 18:49:01
Too right RNRED, we won the European cup with rafa beating teams 1 0. 3 points is 3 points. We are going to need lallana back coz we miss his intelligence. But I think our first team is better than anyone else's. We have a great manager. We bought three players, two of which were written off straigt away, Robertson and solanke have surprised us, they have been excellent so far. Our squad looks stronger already and I think we are going to win every game.

14.) 22 Aug 2017 20:00:44
We can't win every game. we already drew 1. 😳.

15.) 22 Aug 2017 20:18:55
Just saying i would love kovacic but juventus had a 75mill bid rejected or something like that so he wouldn't come cheap.

16.) 22 Aug 2017 20:29:59
Actually it would b nice too get kovacievic plus a defender at the very least anythin less an we officially have no ambition to do well this season its obvious the squad needs depth, an how is it its only us fans who see that.

17.) 23 Aug 2017 15:07:10
Yeah we drew against watford but I think it's pretty clear we should have won that game. We won all but one pre season game we won two out of three proper games.

Cannot believe all the thumbs down from liverpool fans when I say "we will win the league" carry on with the pessimism. Talk about "Supporting your club"

18.) 23 Aug 2017 15:25:35
Love the pessimism guys. Do you think chelsea, city, spurs and united fans are not thinking "we are going to win the league" of course they are and I don't understand why reds fans aren't thinking the same? Looks like pc is staying, we bought three top players. And our squad was thin but brilliant last year. We have the best first eleven in my opinion.

19.) 23 Aug 2017 20:05:58
Do you still think we can't win the league? Lol.



06 Aug 2017 20:44:06
Hi eds have we accepted an offer for Coutinho from Barcelona?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that anything has been agreed at this moment in time. I am aware that there was a discussion in London.}

1.) 06 Aug 2017 21:56:51
Word is that we have said yes, it's all rumour, but I would'nt be surprised.

If it is true, I'm appalled as it completely throws all our preparation for our first game into ruins. It's like we learn nothing from previous seasons mistakes.

2.) 06 Aug 2017 22:07:26
I seriously hope it's not true! Klopp has personally stamped it himself and said he's going nowhere if Couts does go that puts a massive cloud over FSG and Klopp.

3.) 06 Aug 2017 22:08:17
Its looking like he going wouldn't be suprised.

4.) 06 Aug 2017 21:27:02
Thanks for the reply.

5.) 06 Aug 2017 21:30:47
Ed2 what's the latest regarding Lanzini? Would Liverpool like to do a deal if little Pip goes? Thanks once again.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach to West Ham at this time.}

6.) 06 Aug 2017 21:42:20
With you stating that there has been a discussion why does Klopp keep stating Coutinhio is not for sale? Surely Klopp would know this and will only anger the fans if he is now sold?


{Ed002's Note - There have been several discussions. The fans can't be angered by Klopp - they have already been taken in and can't see the smiley clown persona slipping just yet.}

7.) 06 Aug 2017 22:11:21
Think how klopp feels if true as apparently people above him have all but made the decision.

8.) 06 Aug 2017 22:12:12
Sky sports saying he not played last 2 games so he dosnt get injured as talks are ongoing.

9.) 06 Aug 2017 22:13:57
Shocking to say the least. so RBL resisted LFC's attempts for Keita while Klopp stated that Coutinho would not be sold as LFC are not a selling club. Not only are LFC a selling club. there's no ambition at all. Selling Coutinho now would send the wrong signal to the squad at the start of a new season.

{Ed002's Note - Players are transients, they come and go. Another or others will arrive and it will all soon be forgotten.}

10.) 06 Aug 2017 22:17:18
Could start the season with no Coutinho and a manager resigning.

11.) 06 Aug 2017 22:23:14
When are we going to learn? We were apparently going to challenge for the title this year blah blah blah. but as usual we just go ahead and sell our best player and screw our chances again.

Good old FSG. Another year of disappointment and panic buying ahead. I know we are not a one trick pony with Couts, but might as well be.

12.) 06 Aug 2017 22:26:56
And IF true £90m is a p***take.

13.) 06 Aug 2017 22:27:46
The fact we are even having these discussions ed sais to me we may well sell him mate?

{Ed002's Note - I have spent more than a year explaining that.}

14.) 06 Aug 2017 22:29:36
we've got to accept coutinho is on his way out let's just get as much as we can and move on. when coutinho was injured and mane at the end of last year who did we miss more in my opinion it was mane. go and buy a striker or give solanke a chance play mane and salah wide and fiminio behind the striker his preferred role just my opinion. keep up the good work eds.

19.) 06 Aug 2017 22:33:25
Selling Coutinho and bringing in Lanzini is underwhelming to say the very least. It's typical us mind you.

20.) 06 Aug 2017 22:42:23
is this ajax guy a potential replacement for counts then?

21.) 06 Aug 2017 23:00:45
Again, selling top class players and gambling on potential or sub standard players. This is why we haven't won the league for nearly 30 years and never will if we continue like this.

22.) 06 Aug 2017 23:12:18
I for one will not be happy if we let Coutinho go. How can we see ourselves as a team wanting to compete with the top teams and Europe's elite if we allow our best players to leave. In the current market £90 million is a tad low. I'd say £120 million to even consider selling.


23.) 06 Aug 2017 23:14:14
how comes some people's posts are appearing twice on a thread? anywho, I've said it before and will happily say it again. coutinho is free to leave if that is what he wants, and it certainly seems like that is what he wants.

He is getting a pass because he hasn't made a song and dance about it like sterling, suarez and torres. so credit to him. but in the end if the player doesn't want to be here, then he should go. Klopp said that himself when talking about not going after players who only wanted champions league. he wanted players who would come to fight for liverpool. seems like coutinho is giving up the fight and it can't be turned around, so it may be in our best interest to bid farewell.

24.) 06 Aug 2017 23:21:56
Reminds me of the time we bought Andy Carroll thinking he was the dogs.

25.) 06 Aug 2017 23:25:27
Frankly shankley as much as I agree, if a player is determined to leave Torres, Suarez coutinho.

I don't see a lot of choice unless you force them to stay. I for one would rather have players committed to the club. Old fashioned I guess.

26.) 07 Aug 2017 00:12:34
Any insight into a replacement if sold/ . Or has this been updated on the sharkpod Ed's?

{Ed002's Note - You need to read the posts.}

27.) 07 Aug 2017 00:17:32
You can say no, like Red Bull Leipzig and Southampton. Now we face losing a top class player and will replace him with absolute mediocrity at stupid prices because clubs will know we're desperate. I can guarantee that the players who come in will not be of sufficient quality. I'm absolutely certain of that.

28.) 07 Aug 2017 00:26:37
in other words no. thanks.

29.) 07 Aug 2017 01:27:37
now we know what F. S. G stands for. FOREVER. SELLING. GOALSCORERS.

30.) 07 Aug 2017 02:01:58
Gutted if he goes but its not unexpected. The question is not If but When. Personally, I would accept that he'll leave when clubs like Barcelona comes knocking but I thought it would be next season and not this season. Anyways, life does go on. until we rise to the top again, big clubs will poach our top players, just like we poach players from Southampton etc. My only problem is, it will be very difficult to rise up when we sell important players as we're trying to build a good team. Its like taking one step forward, and three steps backwards. We can clearly see the impact when we lost Suarez. We still don't have a so called Suarez replacement till today. Hopefully if we do replace Coutinho, that person will fill in seamlessly but I doubt it, I really do.

31.) 07 Aug 2017 07:44:34
"Panic buy" implies large amounts of cash being spent.
I don't think That's F$G policy.

32.) 07 Aug 2017 09:10:21
Panic buys? Ballotelli, Carroll, Sakho all panic buys.

33.) 07 Aug 2017 17:54:24
90 mil, a piss take? Some people live in a dream world. The most expensive player in the premiership ever and it's a piss take? Neymar deal has moved the goal posts and now people expect 140 mil for a 14 goal 7 assist player. Ridiculous. I bet we bring in lanzini for 30 mil and I bet he does really well for us. He's a brilliant little player, no offence but way too good for west ham. He could be just as influential as coutinio. I bet he scores 14 at least and makes more than 7 assists. Ergo no problem. And we'll be 60 mil up. 1000% mark up, good business, let's be fair.

34.) 07 Aug 2017 18:07:35
Most worrying is the feeling towards klopp that seems to be seaping into the valley. Of course he smiles for the camera and plays the tourist but you only have to here him talk of football to see the underlying passion and ambition. I don't care either way, all that matters is results on the pitch. So far we have progresses under him and still look to be doing so. Smashing bayern Munich for example. It's obvious to anyone who watches us that we are playing the best football we have for long long time. Before anyone turns on klopp (sho so far has lost no one) think who could possibly replace him?

Do you Know what really bores me is that one transfer window shuts and already people are talking about who we can sign in the next? Get over it there is nothing you can do about it.

Mighty reds

Apparently klavan has a twin.

You are KLAVIN a laugh!

3.) 17 Sep 2017 19:30:27
Mighty, they will continue to moan about the obvious tho cos what else can you do if you can't change things right now, they tell you? Moan away about the obvious, knowing full well that NOTHING can be done to fix it right now. It's what moaners do.



16 Sep 2017 17:17:19
We played excellent today, just one of those days, play like we are and we will be fine.

Mighty reds

1.) 16 Sep 2017 17:20:42
It's "one of those days" for most teams. It's every other day for us.

2.) 16 Sep 2017 17:21:10
Too many one of those days! 2 points dropped imo.

3.) 16 Sep 2017 17:21:12

4.) 16 Sep 2017 17:22:04
We seem to have 'just one of those days' a lot in recent years mate its becoming common within each season lol.

5.) 16 Sep 2017 17:22:32
Which game were you watching? We were not at it at all and gave them a soft goal through our comedy centre halves.

6.) 16 Sep 2017 17:23:45
you mean score one out of 35 shots on goal and we'll be fine?

7.) 16 Sep 2017 17:29:25
Where's the leaders and the passion? Communication? These are all critical factors that's bringing this team down.

8.) 16 Sep 2017 17:36:57
oh wait a minute, I understand now, score one out of 35 shots on goal, give up silly soft goals and we'll be fine. I understand now. with that formula we should win the league and champions league easily. great post.

9.) 16 Sep 2017 17:44:32
That defense wouldn't change until January!

10.) 16 Sep 2017 17:53:17
Too many of those days, Unfortunately.

11.) 16 Sep 2017 18:15:25
The team is low on confidence right now as the decision-making up top in the final third was poor. Cou held on to the ball too long at times, Firmino seemed incapable of passing to anyone else other than Cou, Cou's shooting and passing was wayward and the set piece delivery was off. We had 35 shots on goal. That tells me that the attack was disjointed and acted mostly based on sheer will and desperationeven tho, we still could have scored at least 3 goals. Defensively, we weren't tested BUT the goal was littered with at least 3 individual errors and 2 by the usual suspects in Matip and Migs. Must do better.

12.) 16 Sep 2017 18:35:41
Bingo, you can add Klavan to that, he had no need to go for a ball that he had absolutely no chance of getting and should have been dealing with the second ball instead.

Mr Dennis, I think the first header was won by Brady going against TAA, not Klavan. The second ball was all Matip's fault as he let Wood just screw him for the assist w/ o breaking a sweat as he was not goal side on the high ball. Klavan had a decent game, IMO.

As I saw it, Matip caused the first mistake by not winning the header, Klavan compounded it by going the same ball Matip failed to header (that he was never going to win in a million years) leaving Arfield in acres of space. Any decent centre half would have read the situation and dealt with the second ball. As long as we line up with a defender who isn't good enough for a championship side, expect more of this.

Such an over reaction on here tonight, a great European game and a decent point tbh. Sevilla have a lot more European experience than us recently, so more than content with a point.

You are a mightily easily pleased Red. Apt user name you have there. Well done!

Sevilla have spend what £15 mill at the max? I thought they would struggle with the departure of Krychowaik.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 08:18:20
Er, No. They did not struggle at all as they came fourth last season just like they did in Krykowiak's last season before he went to PSG. There, fixed it for ya. Oh, why am I even responding to you. You are not an LFC fan.

Saturday as gone now time to look forward to Sevilla at home on Wednesday, we go again.

Ed1 if you are about mate, I know you are a big Flanno fan, as I an as well, I know he had a bad injury just before he went on loan but has stayed fit for quite a while now, do the club expect him to get his sharpness back to were he was a few years back, I don't believe we have kept him for no reason this summer, also as he fully recovered from his knee injuries now?

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - no one expects him to be back to the level he was at sadly.}

How fragile a footballer's career really is. One injury could affect so much.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 17:33:28
What about falcoa ed.

3 years wasn't it for him to return and he was a part striker trying to get back. Whereas flanno is a not very speedy defender anyway.

He. has enough fight to succeed. He has never been about his athletism.

He just knows the game and if allowed to play he could certainly return.

{Ed001's Note - I hope you are right.}

3.) 04 Sep 2017 18:37:40
I wonder if he could adjust to play centre back Ed001. He reads the game well, tackles well, follows his man as good as anyone, and despite only being 5ft11 he puts players off as they jump kind of like how Lucas did.

He is certainly good enough on the ball. I'm not suggesting he will ever be first choice, but he could potentially be the back up when Klavan is gone. He could even move back into midfield to cover defensive midfield.

It would have to be because he is good enough though, not just because he is scouse. I just think it may be worth trying him in a new role though. He started as a right back, played midfield for the academy, left back in the first team etc. He is well up for the challenge of learning a new position and it could save his Anfield career which he clearly wants to do more than anything.

He just doesn't really suit a wing back in Klopps system.

{Ed001's Note - I would think it is more likely he would play defensive mid.}

4.) 04 Sep 2017 18:50:16
As long as Gomez and TAA are getting in the team and particularly once Clyne comes back there is no need for Flanagan. Should have moved on two years ago. I admire him for his efforts but he could be a starter comfortably at one of the mid table clubs instead of 4th string here.

{Ed025's Note - i hope you meant in the championship amerigo..

5.) 04 Sep 2017 20:30:45
Players like flanno defensively in this day and age are a very very rare breed. Why. Because he actually understands the art. What defending us all about.

The same reason carra was so good.

He doesn't need pace and never has. He will be fine, when given trust and love. Oh and some game time.

But if the player Klopp wants is not achievable then no need to panic buy.

Ed1 if we pull off the Lemar and Vijk Dijk deals do you see a real title challenge this season, also have we made a proposal to sign Sanches on loan from Munich?

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - the club expected a title challenge anyway, so did I. I don't know anything about Sanches or loan bids from us sorry. I can't tell you one way or the other.}

Sanchez as chucked his toys for the last 6 months as Arsenal, not sure I would want that attitude at my club, might be a decent player, not sure he as a good mentality.

Why would Liverpool hold a press conference to say a player is leaving, maybe a press conference for the game but that will be in Germany won't it?

Ed25 I am just a bit surprised mate, because you lot was buzzing at the end of last season when you bought a few youngsters in, ed1 always believes in youth and not buying players just to stop there pathway to the first team, is that a case at Everton pal?

Mighty reds

{Ed025's Note - we have some excellent young players MR but if they dont get the chance then its hard to tell how good they can become mate...over to you mr koeman..
