So the Miror is reporting today that Coutinho is finally gone in a few weeks?
Eds, January or summer, what would youh say is most likely?


{Ed001's Note - summer is the most likely, though he is trying to get himself out in January.}

1.) 20 Dec 2017 10:50:24
The press must read this website daily. A day or so ago Ed002 mentions meetings by Coutinho agents and his family with the owners now apparently the deal is moving forward.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, even when its news I would rather not believe haha.

2.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56
I personally hope it is January. He doesn't want to be here, let's get it over and done with. Would you agree with this Ed1 or would you prefer him to go in the summer when we can get a replacement? I know its a difficult one, he has been playing better recently but still not up to scratch in my opinion, the whole saga has affected his game since the summer, sure he's had a few decent games, that's about it.

{Ed001's Note - I would have sold him in the summer. For me Leicester are the perfect example of the difference that arises when you have players that want to play for you and players that don't. The team that did won the league and almost that exact same team with a few that no longer wanted to be there was in relegation trouble. I know that is not all it was about, but that was the main issue there and you could see the way one player wanting to leave in Mahrez spread seeds of discontent throughout the squad.}

4.) 20 Dec 2017 13:05:03
He is going, that much we can be sure of, however the important thing is that the club gets the best deal it can and buys a suitable replacement and doesn't waste the money.

5.) 20 Dec 2017 11:55:01
That's a good point actually Ed1, I didn't think of the Leicester saga and I do strongly agree, if we'd of flogged him in the summer without messing about I genuinely do believe we may have done a little better if we had. I think it was all up in the air about his future and he disrupted the squad with his antics.

Things seemed to of settled down the past few weeks but it still doesn't disregard the fact he wants out, why keep a player or attempt to who wants out. I'm not too fussed about transfer prices these days because it's confusing but by the sounds of things we could've got a good price for him in the summer so keeping him when he wanted to leave really baffled me to be honest and what worries me now is, Barcelona have other options lined up, I hope to Christ we don;t bugger about should they put an offer in (no doubt they will) because then they could move onto their next target and we're left lumbered with a player who doesn't want to be here.

It may be just be I don't know, I'm far from intelligent with football like many of you are but many of his games this season it seemed to me like he deliberately didn't give a damn, he's been like a ghost many of the games, going missing and what not, not to mention his 'injurys', this doesn't go down well with me. We're still paying his wages, the respect I had for him is gone having said that if he scores a few past Arsenal then fair play but I can't respect the lad anymore. He could've gone about it all in a much more professional way.

{Ed001's Note - football has moved away from the clubs holding all the power so we may as well have just let him go and let him have his wish. I do also feel we would have done slightly better, though he is still affecting games going forward, he is virtually non-existent when we turnover the ball.}

6.) 20 Dec 2017 12:37:32
Ed, do you not think there's some nuance? Saints decision to keep VVD has clearly backfired, his and their form has nosedived and they'll probably get less money now than they could have in the summer. Keeping Coutinho, right now, seems to have been the right call. There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch. We may even get more money now when he does go.

In hindsight I'd say Liverpool got this one right.

{Ed001's Note - I disagree, there has been a very obvious effect. There have been games when he has cost us badly, with his constant refusal to pass when it was on etc and laziness in working back. The team is not good enough, compared to most of the opponents we face, to carry passengers.}

7.) 20 Dec 2017 12:45:10
Good point Ed001 regards Leicester.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

8.) 20 Dec 2017 14:35:39
'There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch'

Half or more than half of the games he has played there has been an obvious effect, a negative one. Same goes with him doing business on the pitch, he doesn't do it a lot, it's only been the past few weeks mate.

I'd say maybe 3-4 games I've thought 'now that's the Coutinho we all know' that's not good enough.

9.) 20 Dec 2017 21:42:33
Can't see him moving in January to sit on the bench especially champions league games where we will probably win it and at Barcelona he can't even play.

10.) 21 Dec 2017 15:53:02
I think Ed has a point. Cou may be scoring goals and assists, no doubt BUT that pales in comparison to what he has doing last season as when he was fit and firing, he was brilliant both offensively and defensively. That is not happening now as he is less effective than last season. He does not pass the ball as quickly and often to open players and chooses o shoot rather than pas like he did disgracefully vs Burnley. He moans when he loses the ball way more often than last season (the Spurs game was a disgrace on this point) and his defensive nous (something we all hailed him for) has nose-dived immensely. This is the point I think, Ed is referring to.



15 May 2017 10:34:49
Ed 002, on May 30, 2016, you stated in your response to a post that Sofiane Feghouli may have been tentatively speculated for Liverpool but you believed he was moving elsewhere with confirmation expected shortly. Well, it happened like you said (not that anyone is surprised you called that right as you almost always do! ) .
Anyway, I thought he was probably the brightest spark for the Hammers yesterday and I was wondering, purely speculating, if there'll any movement this summer for Sofiane Feghouli this summer, and if so, if it has anything to do with Liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of two clubs who have spoken with West Ham about Sofiane Feghouli but Liverpool moved on to Mane last season and seem satisfied with him.}

1.) 15 May 2017 12:14:30
I think satisfied would be an understatement ed.

2.) 15 May 2017 13:57:38
What makes you think he is good enough for us? Cannot even get into the West Ham first team.

3.) 15 May 2017 16:41:05
Neither could mascherano but he turned out alright (potential understatement) . Sometimes quality players don't suit the team / manager they play for, it doesn't affect their qualities and fit in other teams. I have no idea if feghouli is any good but if our scouts decide they want him I will support him, as with all players.

4.) 16 May 2017 19:09:46
Mascherano was a top class player playing for a numpty manager who didn't understand how to use him. Feghouli is a bang average player.

5.) 18 May 2017 18:42:20
That numpty manager named Alan Pardew, was the one who thought a highly-rated Mascherano from Argentina knocking on the door of the national team, was inferior to the great Hayden Mullins. There's a reason he is a woeful n=manager, out of a job, and bitter who has not gotten over LFC and SG snatching the FA Cup from in in 2006.



07 May 2017 11:30:23
Sorry Eds if this has been touched on before, but it was on a name on the Sharkopod so I thought I should ask. Is Liverpool really linked to Lukasz Teodorczyk? Who has watched him play? Is he any good? I read he's the new Lewandowski!
Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - It is a different Merseyside based club who has shown a little interest.}

1.) 07 May 2017 18:14:11
For the love of god, I am sick of Tranmere Rovers stealing all the good players!

2.) 07 May 2017 19:07:11
hahahaha nice one MK.

3.) 08 May 2017 09:33:54
I only watched him on our national team, and he's average. He's behind Lewandowski and Milik in pecking order.

4.) 09 May 2017 14:08:08
Send him to Woodison then 😂.



28 Jan 2016 19:14:20
Ed002, you commented on the Emil Forsberg rumor at the beginning of the month and December last year I think. Is Leicester still in the running? I just rwas Leipzig feel insulted because of a 9 million Euro bid from us. Please enlighten if you have time to.


{Ed002's Note - RBL's Emil Forsberg was a player that Claudio Ranieri tried to sign as Monaco manager and now as Leicester manager he has returned and will look for a deal in January - but I think it unlikely that anything can be done. Previous interest of Liverpool dates from an attempt by Brendan Rodgers to purchase the player from Sundsvall when he first arrived at the club - but he opted for Assaidi. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool returning, nor of any €9M bid and the owner of Leipzig when asked about Liverpool interest said he didn't know of any. If interest has returned it would cetainly spell the end of Markovic and pehaps someone else. Interest of PSV, Fiorentina and Lille existed when he was at Malmo but he made the move to RBL instead. Do not be surprised by a bid from Lyon - again January is not a likely time for him to move.}



15 Sep 2014 15:36:59
Ed002, I know you talked about Pedro's availability in the past, and I still don't know why we did not make any move to sign him. Do you think that would change in January? I just read that Liverpool may be interested in Pedro in January, but I wanted to run it by you.
A long season ahead!
Thanks, Ed.


{Ed002's Note - It would make no sense at all for Liverpool to make such a move in January with the players they have already added to the squad.}

1.) Pedro is better then what we got at the moment. But are kids will come good

18 Apr 2019 16:26:26
Ed002, please could you answer this question for me, if you're available? Nothing serious nor urgent, just curious.
A while ago, there was discussion on here that England was at the risk of losing their 4th Champions League qualification spot because of weak performance in Europe in general, both in the Champions League and the Europa League. I know you talked about a coefficient or ranking system. With the run this year and with Liverpool reaching the finals last year, how much improvement has been made in the ranking? Is England still in danger of losing a spot?


{Ed002's Note - No, it is going rather well. England is up to second overall, and obviously, for this season alone is top of the hit parade. So for a while it is not an issue at all.}

1.) 19 Apr 2019 23:41:41
Cheers Eds002 nice to know.



20 Aug 2018 19:56:53
Eds 001 and 002, is there a way we can put a funding page together or something like that for Salah once we know his situation?

Salah, walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone.


{Ed001's Note - yes, of course mate, we could do that. Just need to know what is happening first.}

1.) 20 Aug 2018 20:37:36
Ed001 is right we kneed more information then we will get the ball rolling for him.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 22:34:46
Just read the orignal post from earleir today.
I hope you get well soon Salah and what ever it is, that you overcome it and come back better than before.

Also great to read everyones well wishes.

Best Wishes.

Does anyone know what shirt number Fabinho is going to be allocated?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 10:55:47
Seems like he has chosen 99. Club shop is selling his shirt with 99.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 11:45:01
I think that’s more on the lines of a number hasn’t been allocated yet. I wouldn’t go getting a number 99 Fabinho shirt just yet. I seem to remember a player being refused 99 last year by the FA? Maybe Prem or Championship?

He’ll prefer 2, Clyne is the current incumbent. Perhaps just waiting until he leaves. Or perhaps he’ll take 3.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 11:48:04
Actually, just looked into it. It was Renato Sanches, he wanted 85 but was refused.

‘But due to Premier League rules, squad numbers must be consecutive and closer to the highest current number. ’ I’m sure this isn’t always enforced though.

{Ed002's Note - Some clubs allocate first team numbers to players who are then loaned out - this tends to cause gaps.}



12 Apr 2018 12:25:50
I was thinking about the Harry Kane debacle. I wonder what Gareth Southgate makes of it. A lot of clamour for Harry Kane to be England's captain at the World Cup, but when you basically bully your teammate and claim his goal as yours, and you go at great lengths to appeal and prove it, I don't know how that can be a good example of what a team should be.
We'll see.


1.) 12 Apr 2018 13:39:05
I just love this Harry Kane thing. The name alone has the potential to become a very-long-lasting meme on the net, ever!

2.) 12 Apr 2018 13:47:16
In a week this thing will be forgotten, it's only still being talked about here because people take it as a personal insult against against Salah.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 14:07:37
Actually Putney it's literally all over the internet, mostly because it's hilarious how pathetic it is and no-one can quite believe how or why it's happened.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 14:10:58
It is constantly being spoken about widely in footballing circles (both fans and players) and will not disappear in a week. There is the slight feel that it is desperation against Salah and his assault on the golden boot but in truth the annoyance for most of us is that HK has seemed to ditch the spirit of the game. Let's get this right, I loved Suarez and he constantly breached the spirit of the game but what Kane has done to his own team mate makes the whole thing a retelling of the Biblical Cain and Abel. I get he's a hungry striker and that wanting to score is his modus operandi but this motivation can only be supported when it is against, for example, a slight deflection (OG) or a blatant dviersion of the course of the ball.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 15:13:36
you know? can't people check it like how the 3 umpires do in cricket? for lbw example? they can check the vibration right?

6.) 12 Apr 2018 15:49:45
harry kane felt the air brush pass him as the goal went in, therefore it's harry kanes goal.

7.) 12 Apr 2018 17:31:02
I wouldn't be too happy with Kane, as it doesn't really help team spirit does it?

8.) 12 Apr 2018 17:40:21
I just don't get the point of the whole thing. Why it matters to the extent of getting a ruling from an appeals panel is beyond me. Surely there's a couple Shearer could've lay claim to on his way to 260? Or, is it to do with being top scorer for 3 seasons in a row for the first time (ever)? I find it childish, and regardless of this season's scoring charts, I've lost respect for his attitude and him as a person. It clearly stinks of being very selfish towards team mates as well. I know Tottenham never win anything so he has to take success where he can, but come on.

9.) 12 Apr 2018 18:24:45
The shamelessness of this Kane debacle can only be matched by a seeming desperation to make Kane happy. Why? I don't know. What I do know is that the optics are pathetic for a Spurs club that is now getting the reputation of being a teacher's (FA's) pet, something many people don't like cos it's like they are getting preferential treatment which is a disgrace, IMO.



04 Apr 2018 18:17:25
Wow, Ray Wilkins.

Just puts everything into perspective. What he would give to watch this match and dissect it!

You'll never walk alone, Ray.

It seems we'll see Nat Phillip's a lot more this season, if Klavan leaves. Mario is now injury prone; Gomez has a history too. Lovren missed weeks at a time from time to time. Van Dijk has had a long lay off before.
I like Nat Phillips though. Seems very composed.

Danny Ward will become a very decent goalkeeper, and we'll remember this day when many regarded his sale as a smart piece of business. He deserved his chance to stake a claim at Liverpool, but he didn't get it. I wish him the very best.

Excellent read, Ed001. Shaqiri was only there for a few seconds, but I agree he looked like he was ready to defend and help the team.
I hope we can continue winning, and we see what happens at the end of the season.
Thanks for the review.

The New Balance (NB) brand has also grown with us I must say, and it was interesting to see two teams in the Quarterfinals (Liverpool and Porto) playing against each other wearing NB jerseys.
I'm hoping they (NB) recognize the potential staying power of the Liverpool brand and the global spread of its fanbase, and use that as a basis to continue their relationship with us. I kind of like NB more than Nike or even Adidas, even though those two are bigger brands globally in football. I remember Adidas sort of bailed out when we stopped competing in Europe a few years back, and we got into a deal with Warrior and NB.
Anyhow, if we remain successful on the pitch, I guess the commercial side will take care of itself.
