Liverpool echo now reporting interest from Lfc in Moses Simon, apparently we have heavily scouted him. Personally I’ve never heard of him, any thoughts on this story or player Ed02?


{Ed002's Note - Two years ag I wrote this: "Gent's Moses Simon has attracted the declared interest of PSV, Apolonia Fier, Spurs, Ajax, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and has apparently been watched by Viking, Liverpool, Reading, Midtjylland, Arsenal and probably others."}

1.) 05 Jun 2018 21:37:51
Is it something you expect to happen? Would he get into the first team or just an impact sub? As I say I know nothing about him, quality player or not?

Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - I am not one to rank players.}

2.) 05 Jun 2018 21:40:43
Ed02, He is another wide player like Malcom and is this any kind of indication that we have moved on from Dembele to other targets? I will take Malcom in a heart beat!

{Ed002's Note - What did I say about Dembele?}

3.) 05 Jun 2018 21:57:16
Well Macca said he is one of the player we are interested and you have said that the asking price is too high for any club to approach Barcelona. It’s clear we are looking at wide players then.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what I said. Perhaps it is best if I leave your posts for Macca.}

4.) 05 Jun 2018 21:57:34
Fair enough Ed02, I am trying to tap into your transfer knowledge and I know you aren’t giving out any information lately.

Thanks anyway


5.) 05 Jun 2018 22:10:51
I remember ed002 mentioning Moses a while back I took a look at him on yt looks like he’s got some potential, id be happy with him and Wilson as backup/ rotation wide players next year if it means we can get Fekir and Allison in.

6.) 05 Jun 2018 22:36:19
I wish people would stop taking things macca says as gospel. Macca is there for us 3-4 days a year and isn’t as reliable as he used to be. The Eds are here every day with invaluable info on transfers and others going on most of us wouldn’t begin to think about let alone understand, and I can’t remember them being wrong on a thing.

Thanks Eds, here’s to you all.

7.) 05 Jun 2018 23:00:53
Red-JB, Macca like the eds thankfully give us information as best they know it. We need to accept that things change, deals fall through etc. I along with everyone else am sure. Are very grateful to macca and the Eds. I've noticed in last few weeks been some comments like macca said or he's already gave you the list and its boring now. Neither the Eds or macca called the Fabinho transfer so just shows that nobody knows it all. And will get info wrong or not get info at all on certain things.

8.) 05 Jun 2018 23:06:12
Sorry Red JB but as far as I am concerned Macca is the best source of information we have about transfers although It’s not a contest between Macca v The eds.
Sorry but ed2 seems upset with Macca for some reason and that’s frustrating if I’m honest.

{Ed002's Note - I am not upset with Macca, I am sick of the Liverpool fans who constantly abuse everything I say and tell me they are only interested in what Macca says. So you keep asking Macca questions and son’t read anything provided by the other Eds.}

9.) 05 Jun 2018 23:31:58
Not trying to turn this into an Eds vs Macca. We’re all grateful for the info that both are able to provide at the time of knowing. Just feel that some posters need to get out of the mindset of Macca being the be-all and end-all of transfer information.

10.) 05 Jun 2018 23:36:30
Thanks for the info Ed2. Do you know if we have spoke to Simon's club/ representatives? Or are we just continuing to scout him and the rest of the media world are just two years behind you ;)

{Ed002's Note - No idea, he is no more than someone previously considered so it would not be unreasonable for him to be looked at again.}

11.) 05 Jun 2018 23:43:53
I'm with Red JB on this, I appreciate Macca giving us info, I really appreciate it but his last post was simply predictions but so many people looked at it as that's who we were signing? I don't think he meant it in that way at all or maybe I am looking at it a different way who knows. Ed2 gave us info daily, info we know full well to be correct because he IS in the know. This has been proved time and time again.

In the past Macca has said things like 'X player is done'

That post last month was not one of them posts.

Sikaboy you say it's not a contest, you're correct, why some fans make it into a contest is what is frustrating, no wonder Ed2 get's pissed off but not at Macca, at people causing hassle for no reason. Why can't people just appreciate kind acts instead of making it into a competition?

{Ed002's Note - Don’t have a go at Macca about this, it is no more his fault than mine.}

12.) 05 Jun 2018 23:50:26
No I'm certainly not having a go at Macca Ed2 mate, that's the last thing I meant, I'm just saying I think many people took his post the wrong way. I appreciate Macca as much as I do you Eds.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea. He has been with the Nigeria squad but is injured.}

15.) 06 Jun 2018 04:34:05
I’ve been visiting this site for around 10 years since back when it was just transfer-rumours. And not to offend any of the others, but the most reliable has always been Ed001 and Ed002 (in no particular order), and then the rest, including Macca. I really wish folks would just stop taking any of them for granted, though. Whether they are right, or maybe occasionally something changes, appreciate that they have taken the time to offer up knowledge of theirs that you don’t have, and they aren’t charging you.

16.) 06 Jun 2018 05:53:44
From ED002 24 Dec 2015 19:12:57
Was a long post but this was in it.

Gent's Moses Simon has attracted the declared interest of PSV, Apolonia Fier, Spurs, Ajax, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and has apparently been watched by Viking, Liverpool, Reading, Midtjylland, Arsenal and probably others.

17.) 06 Jun 2018 06:32:44
Can everyone not just appreciate what we get. either from macca or any of the eds.
If it comes off then great. you can tell your friends down the pub.
Most transfers hit problems and none are 100% until the guy has the shirt on. Appreciate the onfo, because without this website most of us would be clueless and just sitting about scratching our balls waiting for the season to start.

18.) 06 Jun 2018 07:33:00
Its more impossible than ever to predict with 100% accuracy transfers in todays football.

Agents are at their work more than ever.

Any insight you get from someone a little more in the know than yourself is a bonus that should not be scoffed at and more importantly ridiculed if it does not happen.

Its a rumours site and a good 80% of information will ultimately end up being just that unless its a nugget that a player signing is imminent.

The information, insight on all things football, and general post discussions on this sight are second to none. let's try and keep it that way.

In terms of the eds, the hand that feeds you should never be bitten. The ground work they put in on all things football is awesome. Respect is definately well earned on that front.

19.) 06 Jun 2018 07:54:27
You guys need to chill, the eds and macca give us what they know and i appriciate that.

Why get on their backs? Its a forum made for peoples opinion. If you don't like what they have to say don't visit.

Thanks for the work all who participate respectfully.

20.) 06 Jun 2018 08:07:50
Such threads is the reason macca goes quiet and you all start asking the eds where he went. Both Macca and eds get things right and they also get others wrong. Non of them intends to give us inaccurate info, they only give us what they know. Wrong or right we should just appreciate there efforts without comparing who is who. Non of us pays them for this stuff.

21.) 06 Jun 2018 08:28:26
As nice as Macca's info is, he does only post like Every 3 months it seems. The eds are here day in day out providing information and then Macca posts and all of that info is just thrown out the window. The eds know already how much some of us appreciate what they do, but unfortunately there will always be a sub-section of us that will take them for granted. I understand why you have taken a step back ed2.

22.) 06 Jun 2018 10:27:18
Back to the original post before it gone swung 10 mile offtopic, i've seen this guy play twice and he's electric quick but he's very raw, knowhere near first team ready. Maybe a few sub apperances and some cup games while klopp turns him from moses to god.

23.) 06 Jun 2018 10:38:22
Ed002, I'm with Salah on this for sure. The fact of the matter is that the information that comes from you and Ed01 is more reliable than anyone's. I've stated this before but if information does not come from one of you two, I don't believe it. I certainly miss the information that you provided.

24.) 06 Jun 2018 11:15:53
Anyone who gives information does so out of the good of their own heart and not for any personal gratification.
I am very appreciative of it all. We could all do with recognising that rather than holding people to account.

As far as Ed002 is concerned he gives so much more than reliable transfer info. His posts have educated me and I dare say “the majority” about the finer, non-public parts of football. The financial structures, the administrative side of the game. He knows a lot more than mere transfer info and he knows a great deal more about football than this old seasonsed spectator.

More than this I appreciate ed002’s humour, brutal honesty and wit. 👍.

{Ed002's Note - You missed "good looks" Ron.}

25.) 06 Jun 2018 11:28:19
Don’t want the competition Ed002 😘.

26.) 06 Jun 2018 13:27:14
Couldn't have put it better myself Ron, I echo your sentiments.

The only reason I can possibly see for anyone getting annoyed about this (and I mean posters; it's fairly obvious why Macca and Ed002 would get annoyed about it! ) is if someone reads a rumour on here, rushes out and tells all his mates, puts bets on, gets a shirt with a name on the back printed on it, and then it doesn't come off and they look like an idiot. but to be honest, if that is what you do, you look like an idiot whether they sign or not.

27.) 06 Jun 2018 20:11:21
The information that both Macca and Ed02 provide on transfers is awesome. As we have learnt here, things can change very quickly regarding transfers. Fabinho was completely unexpected. Liverpool stepped in after Athletico Madrid dropped out. Neither Ed02 or Macca predicted that, which is perfectly understandable.

The problem is that while Ed02 provides info for us almost daily, Macca posts only a few times a year. Through no fault of his own some fans then treat Macca like the great messiah, who has returned. Hanging on his every word and then abusing Ed02 if he does not agree with Macca or simply has not heard the same info.

I'm on here every day looking for transfer info, but like most of us rational fans, I do not lose my temper if we don't sign the player I would like, for whatever reason. It's just a game.

All the best.

28.) 06 Jun 2018 22:18:42
I personally really appreciate all the transfer updates Ed002 and the others all provide. I don't think it's fair they suffer abuse when all they are trying to do is inform us fans.



17 May 2018 17:07:56
Hi Ed’s,

Just giving you the heads up, ex Liverpool player David Thompson has came out via the Daily Mirror newspaper stating ‘he’d heard we’d signed Yaya Toure on a free’ to replace The departing Can.

Personally don’t believe it, but what with this being a Rumours/ Banter site, thought it may be interesting.





1.) 17 May 2018 17:11:57
Don’t see how he’d work in the pressing we do.

2.) 17 May 2018 17:12:36

3.) 17 May 2018 17:33:30
The guy has zero stamina, you guys forgot the League Cup final against us he was a mess.

4.) 17 May 2018 17:37:55
Heard the very same rumour today off a quite credible source supposedly Klopp sees Yaya as an option for games against the lesser teams in which we tend the struggle he sees Yaya as a valuable asset to help break down those “buses” of defenses. I personally feel like he could be onto something as on a free transfer Yaya Toure brings a wealth of experience, a winning mentality and a quality goalscoring midfielder as we all know he banged in almost 20 on a few occasions for city. YNWA

5.) 17 May 2018 17:51:30
With his leverage and strength, I reckon he'd be a dab hand with the iron, jordz.

Our kits will have razor sharp creases if Yaya was here pressing.

Would cost a (kendall) mint in cakes though.

6.) 17 May 2018 18:14:13
Can’t see it personally.

7.) 17 May 2018 18:31:16
The last aging, out of contract player we got from city didn't turn out too bad did he. Currently breaking records in the champions league. Kolo wasnt a bad squad player either.

8.) 17 May 2018 19:03:46
If his salary was affordable no I wouldn’t mind him a backup option, we need a plan B and he can hit a ball from distance something we’ve missed since Coutinho left.

9.) 17 May 2018 19:23:06
It’s official: The silly season has started.

10.) 17 May 2018 20:03:47
As much as I think Yaya can offer something in the premier league I don’t think that would be at Anfield, he just doesn’t fit Klopps style and has the potential to be a distraction that we really don’t need to take the risk on.

11.) 17 May 2018 20:07:47
Not sure how silly this is though, 1jj. It might not be factually accurate, but it is certainly feasible. Milner and Kolo both signed from City after their contracts ran down. Why wouldn't Yaya? Maybe Kolo has put in a good word for us?

12.) 17 May 2018 20:20:15
The bloke got the hump over a bit of birthday cake. He’s well past his prime.

13.) 17 May 2018 21:17:00
I would rather we went for out of contract Wilshire.

14.) 17 May 2018 21:26:03
Other side of merseyside more likely.

15.) 18 May 2018 04:45:45
I wouldn’t criticise a move for Yaya as a squad player if his wage demands are more realistic in his older age. He’s a professional that knows how to win and has ability in abundance. The birthday cake debacle is blown out of proportion. That was just the icing on the cake (if you’ll pardon the pun) for him in terms of City undervaluing him after his massive contributions in their successes.

16.) 18 May 2018 11:19:57
Not needed.
Waste of a squad place.

17.) 18 May 2018 12:10:53
How much are we getting for Salah?

Fekir and Dembele won't be coming in unless Salah is going out.

Ed2 just on a side note from the transfers.

What is the most interesting thing for you about football?

As in is it the actual game, the business, the fans, the tactics, the people you meet?


{Ed002's Note - Over the years it has generally been the people more than anything else Niall. And, obviously the sex.}

1.) 16 Jun 2018 23:42:37
you could have met MK today, for the latter.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 00:13:17
Ed002, but not the kind of sex that the Newcastle United team used to engaged in I’d hope!

3.) 17 Jun 2018 09:13:48
I brought protection just in case as well.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 09:14:51
Ha ha quality Ed002. I thought that was your agenda all along. Hands off son.



08 Jun 2018 20:22:17
Congratulations Sir king Kenny.


1.) 08 Jun 2018 20:45:35
The King has been Knighted. Take a bow, Sir Kenny. You are truly the King.

2.) 08 Jun 2018 21:06:50
About bloody time.

3.) 08 Jun 2018 21:10:19
A King is better than a knight.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 21:11:32
best player we ever had imo and probably the most sound person also. although like fowler too :)

5.) 08 Jun 2018 21:14:24
Yeah a bit of a demotion that for a king 😉.



31 May 2018 16:41:25
Ed2 I recall when Liverpool won the Champions League 2005, from that time on there was always a largeEnglish presence amongst the teams in the latter stages, which obviously culminated with United and Chelsea winning.

Following this, there seemed to be a power shift and English teams no longer appeared in the latter stages. I think there may even have been fears over the number of European spots given to English teams due to their performances.

Do you see a power shift returning to England due to their increased financial power etc? Or was an English team reaching the finals more a matter of luck?


{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to the money - it is to do with being able to perform on the European stage with sides who play a different style of football. But yes, it is a long way from 5 or 6 years ago right now.}

1.) 31 May 2018 20:12:14
Definitely. We'll all have a chance again next season especially us and City.

2.) 31 May 2018 20:07:01
Ed do you believe the winter break these teams have plays a factor and also the fact it look like a lot of other teams in their particular leagues roll over and have their bellies tickled when playing them.

{Ed002's Note - No, the number of games played over a season may have an edge though.}



19 May 2018 21:27:54
Ed’s I was on the Real Madrid page and there doesn’t seem to be any banter/ crack over there.

What is the general consensus of the Real fan about facing us? Are they fearful? Are they expecting to win etc?




{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what their fans are thinking.}

1.) 19 May 2018 21:48:00
They should be fearful because we'll tear them apart. I doubt they are though, they'll think they are going to beat us, if only they knew ;) .

Somebody tried telling me we was lucky to get here in the CL final lol what a load of tripe that is, we got there because we're quality and deserved it, it has nothing to do with luck. We'll win it because we're the better team and never mind decisions against us, that won't help RM. I can't wait to see the lads lift that trophy next week.

2.) 19 May 2018 22:02:28
Well I was assuming Ed’s on this site would have some degree of feedback from all sets of fans.

Must be wrong


{Ed002's Note - Seemingly so.}

3.) 19 May 2018 22:17:19
The Eds know what everyone is thinking whether fans, managers or players.
They also know exact time lines which deals will be done.

4.) 19 May 2018 22:38:13
RM drew 2-2 with Villarreal tonight.

This team can be got at, if we play to our best we will win.

5.) 19 May 2018 22:50:40
Yeah Navy, 1 win in the last 5 I think it is.

6.) 19 May 2018 22:53:17
I went for a hike with a RM fan in Vancouver last weekend and obviously we talked footie all day. He believed that Liverpool are, and I quote, “a one man team”. I don’t think that Zidane will believe that but if he does it can only work in our favour.

7.) 19 May 2018 23:26:10
Stoneage, and Real are not a one man team? CR7 scored ALL 4 goals vs Juve in the Quarters YET we who have the best attacking front line in CL history (including the highest assists man in CL history), are a one man team? I feel a tinge of arrogance, hubris and self entitlement coming from some of the RM fans and their board and trust me, that does not bode well for them cos trust me, they have NEVER faced a team like ours. As Klopp said before the Roma game, "We are a very awkward team to play against". Real are about to find that out come next Sat.

8.) 19 May 2018 23:41:17
I live in Spain and know many RM fans. They all say pretty much the same thing - they have a bad feeling about the game. Although they all say that they think they should win, they aren’t enjoying the prospect of facing our front 3. They are a smug bunch though - but like Man U fans, and think they will still win.

9.) 20 May 2018 00:13:40
Niall- 1 of my best mates is a Real Madrid fan watches them 10-15 times a season and is going to Madrid to watch the final. So I can give you his opinion. He thinks it will be a tough game expecting goals as he knows Madrid are vulnerable at the back but they also think that of us. They’re confident because of their recent record and because they can’t afford to lose as it would mean their season has been a disaster as at the start of the year all their fans wanted the league. They want bale to start as he’s been hitting form and they think he can Be a real game changer. They are worried about Salah and firmino but don’t hold many of our other players in high regard.
Hopefully well smash them!

10.) 20 May 2018 00:54:15
They should be most scared of Mane given recent form. the man is on a mission. I do worry about their forwards scoring goals from those long diagonal balls in behind our fullbacks but think if we can press them like we did Roma in the first leg they won’t know what’s hit them.

11.) 20 May 2018 02:38:49
I hope we just go for it hell to leather. I'd hate us to go 1 or 2 up and play defensively. I think if we go at it hammer and tong we will win it. I hope they aren't over arwed by the occasion.

12.) 20 May 2018 08:22:33
Their form was about the same as ours at the end of the season. They are concentrating like us on the final.

13.) 20 May 2018 18:26:21
i better not see mane shooting when he should be passing. decision making is not his strong point. I think salahs performances has messed with his head a bit. salah knows when to shoot and when to pass, manes finishing is not as good as salahs which means naturally mane should always pass more than salah if there is the option for a better goal scoring chance. The manager should ingrain this into his head. Its all about being efficient as possible if we wanna be the best.

14.) 20 May 2018 18:28:19
we're only 2 wins in the last perhaps both our clubs sailing into the final with wet sails is no advantage or disadvantage for either aye!?
anyways, none of that matters. on the day is all that matters. I hope our players don't shring when the lights shine brightest. whatever we want to say about Real Madrid, their guys have been on the stage year in year out. so it will be all on us to respond to it!



09 May 2018 13:16:28
Hi, just wanted to post a short observation.

What with the transfer window edging closer, and the normal/ usual curiosity of fans, such as many on here, it is glaringly obvious of the lack of presence of Ed2.

Ed2 you provide such brilliant insights on a daily basis, your transfer knowledge is second to none and on occasion you are very witty.

Please come back and interact with us here! We all know as is life, there’s always one or two who spoil it for the rest! Don’t let the bullies win!




{Ed002's Note - Thanks Niall, but it is not a Liverpool thing.}

1.) 09 May 2018 16:30:17
I think I speak for the vast majority Ed002 when I say we appreciate everything you’ve contributed in the past and we respect that you may need a break from it.
Really hope you can one day return to the transfer information but in the mean time hope to still read your informative and/ or hilarious replies.
Best Wishes Ed 😘.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Ron.}

2.) 09 May 2018 17:49:20
Ron said everything I wanted to on the matter. Best wishes Ed.

3.) 09 May 2018 17:51:18
You the man E002.

4.) 09 May 2018 18:12:43
Every rumors site has that one or two to spoil things for the rest. Waiting for the Ed 002 to come back again with bang. Take your time Ed :)

Ed02, would Dembele enhance our first team? Would he get a regular starting spot? Do you see us going for him irrespective of what Macca has said?

(Ps I know your trying to stay away from transfer news, sorry in advance)




{Ed002's Note - As a replacement for Salah he would get games. I am not sure if Macca has said he is a "done deal" or not, but everyone here has been telling me that Fekir, Lemar, Maddison and many others are already "done deals".}
