Looks like Coady might be off to Huddersfield Town. Good luck to the young lad- hope he does well.




18 Jul 2014 21:00:49
Looks like we might have agreed a fee for Borini with Sunderland.

If he does move on, I personally would wish him the best of luck as I really like the kid and think he deserves a bit of stability for once in his career.


1.) 19 Jul 2014 03:39:25
His attitude deserves some form of recognition. He felt more relaxed at Sunderland and bit too anxious while he's at Liverpool. The move will do him some good. All the best, Fabio!

2.) 19 Jul 2014 04:59:55
Agreed. Hope we have some buy back clause. The kid looked good for them but wasnt given a chance under BR, like so many others. We now look very lightweight up front.

Hi Eds,
Was watching an interview via Youtube earlier and Tony Evans claimed Rodgers initially pulled the deal on transferring Sturridge to Liverpool in the summer and then had Sturridge forced on him the winter window. True, b*******, or massive oversimplification?


{Ed001's Note - Rodgers did no such thing, he pushed for the move to go through.}

1.) 27 Mar 2014 07:50:51
Cheers, Ed001, appreciate the reply.

Thought it seemed a bizarre statement to make and I couldn't see how it could be accurate. He basically said Rodgers quashed Sturridge in the summer as he wanted Dempsey instead. Then when that didn't happen, FSG pushed Sturridge on him in the winter.

2.) To be fair who cares we have him now that's what counts and if it is true i'm sure brendans a very happy man to have the best english stiker out there

3.) I heard it was benitez who rang gerrard and told him he was available and gerrard passed the information on to Liverpool I also believe that he (benitez) told him that coutinho was available too.

4.) The question is why come out with something like that when Liverpool are trying to focus on finishing strongly?

Is he trying to unnerve Sturridge for some reason, I already feel uneasy as it is when Sturridge gets subbed nearly every game, the lad must be thinking WTF.



06 Aug 2013 23:07:56
End game it is then, eh, Luis? Nifty. From the Guardian article-

"Last year I had the opportunity to move to a big European club and I stayed on the understanding that if we failed to qualify for the Champions League the following season I'd be allowed to go, " he revealed. "I gave absolutely everything last season but it was not enough to give us a top-four finish - now all I want is for Liverpool to honour our agreement."


1.) No big shock fella, to hell with him. was saying this weeks ago, it was bound to get out of control, he wants out. and? no big deal. we are Liverpool, Suarez is one player. he's history to me, brilliant player. but my god I look forward to the day he's gone. sooner rather than later hopefully! people say they hope he doesn't go to Arsenal. I couldn't care less if he went to Man Utd, he's not a reliable player and brings trouble wherever he is. aslong as we get 50m i'm happy wherever he ends up. to hell with Suarez, I just wish people would stop going on and on about it!

2.) You and me both I'm sick of this now but would rather stick him in the reserves and have a go with what we've got or can get, rather than sell him to arsenal. We do that and we are in trouble because we won't get the 4th spot.

3.) Let's hope Henry plays hard ball with Suarez. If the contract is water tight get minimum 55m euros from overseas club and sell. He has no cards to play. not available in EPL for 6 games so play hard ball. He or perhaps his agent have been absolute s*it* so make them grovel now

4.) The sad and depressing thing is that some fans will still be begging this DFDS to stay.

5.) He can go fly a kite. I`m sick of his mess and lies and taking the mickey out the club and the support and goodwill of the fans. Get the cash and to hell with him. And if and when he comes back to anfield, he will get the treatment ONLY reserved for traitors.

6.) Surely there is a solution to this difference of opinion? Why don't the club issue a copy of the contract with the appropriate clause(s) to the media so that everyone can see where the truth lies. A verbal arrangement that LS claims is so important would have been written into the contact surely? The club's credibility is being called into question so this action would vindicate their position.


7.) This just sounds like is agent as f**ked up the clause in the contract they think they had and are clutching at straws. I would tell him he can go to any team outside england and that's it for 50m. Hope henry has some b******* .

8.) I'm not sure if this is true but were reporting that the clause in Suarez' contract states he can talk to champions league teams only if an offer of over £40m is made. This is the reason for the silly arsenal bid including £1, however as they are yet to actually qualify for the champions league we are within our rights not to allow Suarez the opportunity to speak with them. In a nutshell I think we are desperately waiting for an offer from abroad of £40m+ which just dosnt seem to be happening at the moment. IMO this will go right to the last week of the transfer window and ultimately leave us short on time to spend the money, Like most LFC fans I want an end to this ASAP so we can move on without him, in an ideal world I hope he signs for Arsenal and we beat them to 4th place so we can stick two fingers up at the bloke.

9.) Luis Suarez has told the Guardian and the Telegraph that he is prepared to submit a written transfer request and go to arbitration if Liverpool refuse to let him leave.

The 26-year-old claims the club promised a year ago to allow him to move on if they failed to qualify for the 2013-14 Champions League. And he has declared that he is prepared to take his case to the Premier League if Liverpool try to keep him against his will.

He makes Torres look loyal.

10.) 07 Aug 2013 08:11:02
He has some cheek! maby you should honour your contract luis. I hope he goes to be fair, holding the club back.

11.) 07 Aug 2013 09:11:42
I can understand that all players want to play in cl and yes he did stay to help get us there unfortunately we didn't get there suraez did give everything well in truth probably a little to much as him getting suspended didn't help are quest for cl football.

12.) Hope FSG and BR make him rot in the reserves instead of selling to Arsenal. It's what he deserves after acting so disgracefully!

13.) If Luis had kept his mouth shut, all Liverpool fans would have worshiped him next season as if none of this had happened. There really is no point in keeping him now, take £40million and let's buy a couple of players to replace him. There is one thing being disgruntled at the club and making your feelings known internally, but to go to the papers is an absolute disgrace. I bet his agent is rubbing his hands right now thinking about the money he will make. Suarez has gone from hated by all, but loved by Liverpool, to just plain hated by all.

14.) 07 Aug 2013 10:24:11
I find it frustrating though that its Real who started this whole affair with their comments and now they sit back and watxh it unravel. They are probably going to be really underhanded wait till they've sorted out Bale and in the meantime leave Suarez trying to force his way out (exactly like he his). they'll sit there on the sidelines waiting patiently and think they can get him on the cheap as we wil be forced to sell an unhappy player. Ef them, sell him to the Arse and force their hand instead. They still don't have a fantastic squad even with him amd only scrapped top 4 last year. i'd be more concerned with Spuds than them anyway. Whatever anyhow I don't want go see that piece of gnats excrement anywhere near our shirt again.

15.) Make him put in a written request.At least that will cost him a couple of mill.

16.) Suarez's assertion that we promised last year to let him leave if we did not achieve a CL place by the end of the season is clearly a complete lie. Why would we make such a promise when he had just signed a new contract? Furthermore, he has never previously mentioned this. All we have have been told about is his discomfort with the UK press and, latterly, his desire to play in the CL. Then there is the question of the clause in his contract which he perceives to be a standard release clause. Here again his agent has performed poorly. It is now pretty clear that the interpretation of this clause is that a £40 million offer triggers a referral to the player, not a release. The fact is that the Suarez camp have not understood the clause until recently and this explains why they have not rushed off to court. They know that they would lose. Frankly, if I were Suarez, rather than worrying about the quality of my club I would be more worried about the appalling performance of my agent who does not seem to understand the requirements of his job. As for LFC, I consider that now is the time to stand strong. Suarez should be told in no uncertain terms that he will be allowed to move only to a non-UK club and that the deal has to be for market value which has to be in excess of £50 million. In the meantime he must, of course, abide by the terms of his contract and, if he does not, then the normal sanctions that apply to any player must follow. If this involves his having to sit on the bench then so be it. I would have thought that refusing to travel with the team to a friendly game as well as this unauthorised press release both constitute disciplinary breaches that should be punished. Remember how City were applauded for the strong professional way they dealt with Tevez. Kissing time is now over. LFC is much bigger than this rather pathetic human being. {Ed002's Note - You have misunderstood the situation with the contract and what folks are interpreting this to be. Whilst I am sure that Liverpool would prefer to sell the player abroad, if they were to say that Suarez could only be sold to a non-UK club then that would of course be a restriction of trade and Liverpool could well have a major legal issue to deal with. It really would be best if folks tried to avoid second guessing the content of the contract. We know the larger situation regarding the player wishing to leave and the club wanting the best deal that they can.}

17.) 07 Aug 2013 11:55:29
Funny . He wants to leave bt only one club made too small an offer so hw can he leave!? Also send him to arse hw manny times we had 8 goals scored against us haha hel be more peed off with a bunch of fairies like arse than with us!

18.) "He was told he could leave"!

Liverpool's legal rep in court. "So Mr Suarez you have been asked to produce the evidence that you were given permission to move to a CL club but you have failed to do other than claim it was agreed verbally by someone who totally denies ever saying that."

As movie maker Sam Goldwyn said "A verbal contract ain't worth the paper it's printed on!"

Only Arsenal are bidding and Louis's burnt his boats so he's getting purely desperate. Despite his posturing he still hasn't put in an official transfer request, hasn't brought in the PFA to "audit" his contract, and certainly hasn't taken LFC to court.

19.) Honour?! It's obvious he doesn't know the meaning of the word! Of course Poltier there was no such agreement - why sign on for 3 more years if you were only prepared to wait for 1 to see if CL qualification was achieved?

And what I can't believe no one else has pointed out - how can he blame LFC for not qualifying for the CL? Surely it should be the other way around? He was in the team that didn't qualify for CL. And maybe if he didn't spend a quarter of the season banned, we would have a better chance of qualification! As for breach of contract, you're not telling me that Suarez had it written into his contract that LFC would continue to pay his wages for sitting on his bahookie in the stand!

The guy's a snake, end of!

I read the other day that we had sent scouts to watch Nkoudou of Marseilles. Any real interest there for Liverpool? Kid is having a pretty good season looks like.


{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine or read the posts.}



30 Oct 2015 17:22:17
Article up on the Echo from Pearce talking about how Klopp plans to overhaul the loan system (although calling it a system is probably being generous) we've been using. Even if nothing else, that alone makes me quite happy.

Short version is he seems to think it would be better to keep more of the kids here rather than elsewhere on loan (also mentioned he drove down to Wolverhampton to watch Ojo, but Ojo didn't play- love the commitment there honestly) .

Curious what others think about this?


{Ed001's Note - it is something we knew, and mentioned, when he was appointed and something most of us have been saying for years. It has been a mess but hopefully Klopp will sort out the loan system and make it work for us, rather than ruining players.}

1.) 30 Oct 2015 18:46:18
The loan system to me especially under Rodgers meant they wernt fancied and eventually would be sold. We never seen a young player go out on loan, return and get a chance never mind a run of games. All the wrongs at the club, klopp has easily iddentified and is correcting. That is what a top manager and one with common sense can do.
when Kelly was sold i was gutted. Youth product and he had one real outstanding season at right back and could have turned into a quality centre back. His end product going forward was mostly excellent . His sale was a real shame.

2.) 30 Oct 2015 18:54:46
Over 100 out on loan in the last 5 years, only 2 came back and made it to the first team.

3.) 30 Oct 2015 19:41:18
Thought Kelly's injury prompted his sale? Also if them stats are are correct it's a bloody disgrace.

4.) 30 Oct 2015 21:51:47
I might be alone in thinking this but players we loaned under Rodgers often seemed that Rodgers was like, "yyyyyeahh I don't know what to actually do with you, I'll put you in the too hard basket".

5.) 31 Oct 2015 07:34:46
I am happy for any fresh thinking about anything in the club. Just to say though, there is a limit to how many players you can use in official games, and at some point you may also want some stability in your squad. Having players that rarely play for the senior team is not very useful for their career and is also costly to us because we have to pay their salaries. In principle, the idea that if someone is unlikely to get many minutes in the senior squad is loaned to a lower side so he can play there doesn't look so outrageous to me. It worked with Kane in Spurs, it seemed to have worked for us with Ibe And Textiera (at least for those who think they should play more for us now, I am not one of them) .

As I said before, Chelsea has more players in loan than us. You also have to accept that there will always be some young players you will buy and will not make it to the first team but it is hard to know these things in advance and a loan system is one method to sort the ready ones from the not so ready and from the never will be ready.

Of course you can decide you buy fewer young players or that if you are not sure about someone you sell them rather than loan or that you sell some of our senior players and hope for the best with the youngsters (not wise IMO, as I said before I don't see reason to prefer players just because they are young) . But having so many players, let all of them play, being able to pay all the salaries and keep everyone happy seems to me a big task.

{Ed001's Note - actually it never worked for Kane at all, he struggled badly on loan, it was only when Spurs had no choice but to throw him for the long term that he prospered. Loans, in the main, are not a good way to develop young players, most of the time they do not bring them on as expected. There are very few young players that have reached their potential due to loans. It is those that get thrown into the first team that become the top players, in the main.

How many players have Chelsea loaned out and how many of them have become first team players afterwards? It is a very haphazard way of developing players, it is more about making money in the way they use it. In my opinion they should just scrap loans altogether.}



09 Oct 2015 15:57:41
According to an article by Ben Smith, Klopp indicated he wanted to go watch one of our youth games in the coming week. Brilliant start, that- hope he makes frequent appearances at them.


1.) 09 Oct 2015 16:17:28
Agree 100%, think that's a great. Will be a good way to build enthusiasm through the whole club and inspire the youngsters.

2.) 09 Oct 2015 16:45:27
It is also the way good managers do business.



25 Jun 2015 17:52:35
Curious if any of the Eds have any insight into who is selecting the players we are buying? Is it BR, the committee, other? The targets overall seem much better in terms of fit and quality than we seem to have seen in the past and the club seems generally more aggressive with the approaches they are taking- not complaining about it, mind.


{Ed001's Note - as I said yesterday, I have no idea who is doing all this.}

1.) 25 Jun 2015 19:08:54
It's super Ian ayre behind this.
Btw ED001 you surprised mate at how suddenly we are completing transfers in a jiffy efficiently and without any drama?

{Ed001's Note - shocked mate, I normally expect it all to go wrong and am very rarely disappointed in that front!}

2.) 25 Jun 2015 19:15:03

I smell a conspiracy theory . Ayre has been cloned

{Ed001's Note - I think that would lead to the end of the world if there were two Ian Ayres. The world just couldn't handle it.}

3.) 25 Jun 2015 19:15:41
It seams to me as if one person is doing the selecting of players. Whoever that might be but by the speed of things surely it's just one person?!?

4.) 25 Jun 2015 20:05:48
Cmon lads Ian had taken a bit of stick over the years and rightly so on some occasions. But let's not forget he was a man who went against the Hicks and Gillett regime and for that we got to be thankful.

5.) 25 Jun 2015 20:10:15
Ed001Nah mate. The world only has to deal with one . The other one's locked with Rodgers in J.W.H's closet. 😂😂

{Ed001's Note - are you trying to tell us something? If Ayre is about to come out the closet I would like to volunteer my services as a shoulder for his missus to cry on.....}

6.) 25 Jun 2015 20:23:42
{Ed001's Note - are you trying to tell us something? If Ayre is about to come out the closet I would like to volunteer my services as his first male experience}

Ha sorry Ed when I first started reading that I thought you were just about to tell us you have come out!! Now that's one the Mrs could get angry with you about!!

{Ed001's Note - she doesn't need any excuses mate.}

7.) 25 Jun 2015 20:24:17
Thanks, Ed001- missed your comments yesterday. Whatever group or person is making the decisions, they seem to be doing a credible job so hope it continues.

8.) 25 Jun 2015 20:38:18
Mrs ayre good looking ed?

{Ed001's Note - she is hot enough it would be worth getting grief off the missus for 'taking care' of her!}

9.) 25 Jun 2015 20:42:06
I'd rather henry came out. I'd be more interested in lending henrys wife a shoulder. On second consideration I'd be willing to lend anything to Henry's wife

{Ed001's Note - the only thing she might consider lending you is 50p...}

10.) 26 Jun 2015 00:37:06
Aye as if JWHenrys wife carrys around coins



11 Apr 2015 22:30:32
The quintent of Lambert, Balotelli, Markovic, Lallana, and Lovren cost ~£85M and have played 5, 307 minutes in the league scoring a combined 9 goals, getting 4 assists, and creating 60 chances.

Sterling and Henderson have played 5, 135 minutes scoring 12, assisting 14, and creating 110 chances.

Well done transfer committee.


1.) 12 Apr 2015 06:04:58
Understand your point, but lovren is a defender, not expected to contribute to goal stats, lallana has been injured a lot, and I really like him as a player. We play 1 striker, and you've named two on your list, and obviously you'd like to believe if Lambert or balotelli was guarded to start they would contribute more. Balotelli is an exception, he had had enough Chances, but Lambert was always going to be a sub, so it's hard to factor In a minutes to goal ratio. You've basically just picked our two bed performing attacking players to 5 other players.

2.) 12 Apr 2015 07:25:28
It was a shocking attempt by Liverpool football club last summer it truly was from the man that employed the committee to BR. Absolutely clueless. The way that money was spent was discraceful but it's nothing new, we have been doing it for years. Would of thought we would of learnt from the stupid idea to spend 35 million on Andy Carroll.

3.) 12 Apr 2015 07:57:50
Lovren is a defender so should be excused from any goal or assist count.
I agree with everything else though RDL.

4.) 12 Apr 2015 08:14:10
Lacazette, Konoplyanka/H.Min-Son, Firmino, Papadopoulos/Alderweireld would have cost us around £60m - £65m last summer

5.) 12 Apr 2015 09:00:48
Well done to Rodgers too for approving of the quintent of Lambert, Balotelli, Markovic, Lallana, and Lovren.

Lallana, Lambert, Lovren and Balotelli would have all be very well known to Rodgers.

Markovic is the one Rodgers would not have known about.

My question is, who else did Rodgers reject on the shortlist in favour of the above mentioned players?

We know the likes of Bertrand and Remy were on there. If only we knew which other players were a possible to sign but rejected by Rodgers?

6.) 12 Apr 2015 09:11:11
No one can argue that last summer's signings were success but I think it is worth remembering that there is always an element of gambling and uncertainty about signings. Chelsea, who everyone praise their signing success in recent years and rightly so, still bought Torres from us for what 50M? and this was a disastros signing. ManU are paying what 250K a week To Falcau to play for the reserve team. Some signings take time to show that they were worthwhile - See Fallieni in ManU last year and this season.

For us Lallana was not a bad signing and he can become an improtant player, I am happy we have him. Lovern may come good, hard to tell. I personally don't have much expectations for Markovich. Baloteli was a disaster and he should leave in the summer but I repeat what I said here many times before, no one could have predicted Mario will be so poor on the pitch. People thought about discipline issues, red cards and bad influence in the dressing room but the view was that if BR can control his behaviour (and he overall did) Mario can do miracles on the pitch. At the end of the day the number one target of the committee and BR was Sanchez, this was the right call but he didn't want to come. let's hope this summer they do a better job.

7.) 12 Apr 2015 09:11:46
Wow ! 😠

8.) 12 Apr 2015 09:19:57
Is the transfer committee real or myth? If it really does exist, doesn't BR have a final say anyway?

The topic of the transfer committee only seems to come up in conversation when people are defending BR.

Either way, our transfers since FSG arrived have been truly awful.

9.) 12 Apr 2015 09:49:02
The managers tactics and motivational skills (or lack thereof) in the first half of the season will have had some influence on numbers of goals scored, although we certainly made bad mistakes in transfers.
But keep some perspective. let's not forget there were some good buys too.
I still think there is a very good left back lurking somwhere inside moreno, and markovic, lovren and manquillo could still become very good players.
It was a bit better than kennys big window, where we signed the likes of downing and adam.
And at least there is some good news, in that the owners will try to make sure the mistakes are not repeated in future.

10.) 12 Apr 2015 11:01:15
None of you complained about the transfers last season.

In fact, many was praising the signings.

I remember though that may were concerned regarding the replacement of Suarez , which has proven to be true.

11.) 12 Apr 2015 12:48:26
It annoys me a bit that people are so negative about Lazar. Ed2 said he isn't ready for the prem, his manager at Benfica said he needed careful management and game time. He wasn't meant to be amazing straight away. If managed properly he will be a superb player, however I fear the way his game time has been managed this season he may have been set back rather than developed. I really hope it's not too much of a set back for him.

12.) 12 Apr 2015 12:56:50
I don't have a major problem with many of the signings as individuals apart from the strikers which were both gambles that didn't work IMO (although I still suspect if BR had had Sturridge fit to play him as a pair with Balo, might have been a very different outcome)

I suspect most others will work out over time, but I still question whether they were good choices for what the team needed. Any team needing to draft Can in to CB, play GJ at RB and use Sterling as striker clearly hasn't filled gaps. On the other hand we already have Coutinho, Sterling as attacking mids, yet spent another 45million on Llalana and Markovic?

13.) 12 Apr 2015 13:01:56
what I don't get is how lallana has suddenly become quite injury prone. he was hardly missing for southampton now he just starts getting a decent run of games he picks up another injury. i think we look a better team with him in.

14.) 12 Apr 2015 13:15:51
Can't afford to make the same mistake replacing Gerrard Davey.Would love to see Henderson and Can and as the muscle with Pjanic pulling the strings.

15.) 12 Apr 2015 13:30:56
You are quite correct Davey in your assesment that we were all cock a hoop about the new signings over the Summer, except for Balo, plenty could predict he was a massive gamble. One thing you forget tho. We are not here to pick players and have no real knowledge really of how good a player is or can be in the future. Many think they do tho! But Rodgers, the committee and the scouts should have an idea who they want and if they should be good enough.

16.) 12 Apr 2015 13:50:56
Wasn't Lallana last seasons most subbed player?

17.) 12 Apr 2015 14:13:01
Can't believe the vitriol directed against Liverpool players. Lallana and Lovren are really good players, Marko will be superb too. You can argue we overpaid or whatever but no doubting their quality.

18.) 12 Apr 2015 15:07:44
For those that mentioned Lovren (and admittedly he's not expected to add much to those 3 stats in particular), you could swap him out with Moreno and the numbers don't change much. Broader point being we spent a lot of money and 3 of those 5 haven't even hit 1,000 minutes on the pitch, either through injury or not being selected or both.

I don't really care if it was Rodgers or the committee, but either way our transfers once again have either been very poor or the manager hasn't been able to get much from them and either way we don't have the money to keep spending this badly.

Not sure why anyone would be unhappy with us signing a young, promising winger really. If Klopp wants a LB, he'll sign one as well, it's not like we can only make one more signing or anything- clearly he's not as concerned about it as most supporters (rightly or wrongly) .

We have plenty of cover. Lallana and Milner can/ do both play wide as well as the kids like Ojo and Kent. Markovic would be lucky to even make the bench most of the time and sitting in the stands isn't really going to benefit him. I'd personally rather see whatever limited minutes he does get going to Ojo.

Read somewhere the players liked white better as it was easier to see with the red blending into the crowd a bit. No idea if that's true though.

Agreed to an extent, Ed002, unless the belief is that Sturridge isn't effective without Suarez or another striker with him. When given the opportunity to play central by himself, he's generally done very well for us.


{Ed002's Note - It is irrelevant - he scored less goals when the one who squats to piss plays and more when el runto is removed.}

For me, Hamilton, the first attribute I want in a striker is goal scoring, everything else is secondary by some distance. Choosing a starting striker by how good they are defensively I find a strange one. I don't necessarily disagree with you that is how Klopp may see things at all as I said previously it wouldn't be shocking to me to see Sturridge move on at some point, but for me personally the best six attacking types we could field would be Firmino, Sturridge, Mane, Coutinho, Can, and Henderson.

Sturridge scored at a slightly higher rate without Suarez on the pitch then when he was, so I'd say he's quite fine being the only striker. Whether or not Sturridge will be in Klopp's long term plans I couldn't say, but it wouldn't surprise me if he wasn't. Not saying that's what I want mind as I think it would be silly to let him leave, but I also think it's a tad silly to not be starting him when he's available so.


{Ed002's Note - That would be expected. If you remove Aguero from the Manchester City side then it is likely that the other forwards will score at a higher rate.}

By DS you mean Daniel Sturridge? I'm starting to believe that maybe Ed002 is right and we are a terrible group of supporters.
