Hi eds, are Fernando and menez free agents in the summer? If they are do you know who they will likely join for next season? Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - I suspect Fernando will complete his move to Manchester even after agreeing a new contract with Porto. Fiorentina are still pushing the hardest for Menez.}

It can be argued we needed a left back, however this has to be our best transfer window for quite some time. We have improved the team whilst also managing to offload a lot of players who were surplus and received good fees for the majority. Hopefully now we are in a position where future windows won't see 6-7 signings and we will be able to make the 1 or 2 quality signings which will improve the first 11.

Are you serious? It's a shambles.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 22:05:22
We have wasted money again on a player we didn't need in wijnaldum.

Klaven wasn't needed I'd rather we just kept toure.

All along we haven't bought a LB which was a massive problem area. Why sell smith?

It's been far from brilliant.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 22:06:37
Quiet down guys, just wait and see how the season unfolds. Although i was hoping for a LB.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 22:14:38
I think Sakho missing from your back four makes you weaker from a defensive point of view. Surprised you didn't buy a top notch keeper, CB and LB.

Not sure you needed Wijnaldum, also it seems Mane has replaced Sturridge from the team albeit not directly position wise, more replaced from starting XI. So are you stronger offensively when all your best players are fit? Not massively if at all IMO. I like Mane, but Sturridge is a top player when fit and firing.

Liverpool will concede crazy amounts of goals this season. But I expect you to score loads too. I think you could see a few 4.3 results this season.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 22:17:12
Amassing a bloated squad was a shambles; thinning it out is prudent. We have done some good business in Karius, Matip, Klavan, Grujic and Mane. I'm less sure about Wijnaldum, but hope to be proved wrong. We've bolstered the defense, which was a weak area, though Left Back obviously needs adressing still. I cannot disagree with any of the outgoings; including, if he does leave, Sakho.
Some want to paint this as an excellent window, others as a catastrophe. The truth is in-between.

6.) 01 Sep 2016 12:45:34
We need to play gruic. Sp. Don't undrstand why klopp is not playing him? Brilliant in pre season.



10 Feb 2016 12:48:50
Gutted we not still in the Fa cup but hopefully the displays from the likes of Stewart, brannigan, chirivella and Smith show we have enough in the squad to do a job if needed. Hopefully with this realised we will now target players in upcoming transfer windows who will improve the 1st choice 11 rather than buy an endless amount of overpriced similar ability players who are short of competing for the title.


1.) 10 Feb 2016 15:30:01
well said Red80. quality over quanity, only bring players in who are better than those we already have. would we miss milner or lallana, because we have chosen to use stewart or tex? we do not have a bottomless pit of cash, we need to get smarter in our transfer dealings.

2.) 10 Feb 2016 22:37:43
I Milner, Lallana, and Moreno as well as Clyne need to look over their shoulders, especially the first two because Stewart, Smith and Flanno are coming for your spots.



22 Jul 2015 18:08:54
To shed a bit of light on the slight administrative problem holding up the Benteke deal. The computer systems at Melwood are prone to getting stuck on 3 or 4 letters.This has been an ongoing problem since Rodgers joined. The scouting search first got stuck on A,B & C which resulted in us signing Allen, Assaidi, Alberto, aspas, borini, continho, cissokho and can. The problem was thought to have been fixed but the signings mignolet, lambert, lallana, markovic, lovren, origi, manquillo, moreno, Mario and Milner highlighted the system had fixed on L,M, N & O. The systems was then reset but bogdan, Clyne and benteke have followed. Could have been worse beasant could have been our new back up keeper.


1.) 22 Jul 2015 19:47:17
that sounds very far fetched!! can ed002 or ed001 confirm this?



2.) 22 Jul 2015 20:50:03
This is complete rubbish melwood computers use a qwerty keyboard

3.) 22 Jul 2015 21:11:37
like it :)

4.) 22 Jul 2015 22:09:56
Eds also use the same computer system but theirs gets stuck on R,T & P.

Only kidding you guys do a great job. Congrats ed1.

Kono announcement at 2100 apparently.




26 Jan 2014 14:03:53
Hi Ed02 thanks for sharing your excellent knowledge. I appreciate you have answered a lot of questions regarding salah over the last few days but do you still expect him to sign for Chelsea with it only being paperwork holding up the announcement or is there still the possibility that discussions are currently taking place with other clubs. Thanks for all your work answering Reds questions and rumours.


{Ed002's Note - What other clubs are these? How can he talk to "other clubs"?}

1.) Other clubs possibly Newcastle or Liverpool. Discussions between clubs over meeting Basel's valuation of the player or as far as you know is the deal to Chelsea all but done? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Are you sure you are not just making this up? We can discuss Salah again when he signs for Liverpool.}

2.) Sakah`s gone, Red. Get over it because u just look desperate right now.

Daveybootle, how do the stats indicate a good defence? Most of the goals have come from the team letting the scorer get in to positions where it's been easy to score.

Football is about opinions. If we all had the same opinion football and this website wouldn't be what it is. I do agree with some of your point about giving youngsters a chance but with fans, owners wanting immediate success and managers futures riding on a few months performances. In my opinion you'll see less youngsters being given long runs of matches in the first team as the managers job is on the line. I'd like to see the likes of Arnold and brannigan given a run in the team. Maybe it's up to the club's to make changes to the u23 to make it more competitive and worthwhile?

If we gave all the youngsters 2 years to settle in, at least after 2 years they would hopefully be good enough to get us back out of the championship. All these young players Liverpool have not given a chance to in the past have gone on to other clubs and how many have become world beaters?


{Ed001's Note - for gods sake this stupid comeback again. That is the most ridiculous way of judging whether a player could have been good enough if they had not had their way blocked in their formative years. The time when they usually make the most progress, but they can't do so when they are not getting first team football.}

There's so many posts about how the youngsters should play more. Not all the youngsters are going to make it to be the standard required. Liverpool have probably given more chances to youngsters than most of the other top 10 teams in England. Ilori and suso are 2 of many who had chances to shine in 1st team games and training but unfortunately just aren't good enough. Everyone likes it when an academy player makes it like fowler, Gerrard and carragher but not everyone will.


{Ed001's Note - so not true, neither had enough chances in the 1st team, certainly not Suso who did shine on those rare chances he got. It takes years of regular football to develop, not 2 or 3 games. You are talking crap. Carragher was the target of the boo boys for years and was seen as a flop by a large number of fans in his early years. It took him years to develop into the mainstay of the backline that he became.}

Any chance of getting Paul Konchesky?

Flanno is not the answer for left back.

We should go for Ben Chilwell, he can play at the back and sides.


{Ed002's Note - Leicester’s Ben Chilwell has been attracting the attention of a number of sides with Arsenal, Brighton & Hove Albion, Liverpool and Norwich all attending Huddersfield Town games to watch the loanee after he impressed in the academy last season. Spurs and Newcastle have also been keeping a watchful eye. However, to cover for an injury, Claudio Ranieri has recalled Chilwell but matters are seemingly being taken out of his hands as Arsenal has made a formal approach to Leicester about a January transfer. If a move were to happen, the player would need to accept he would then likely be sent out on loan again.}

Quite often people like to focus on the negatives rather than look at what improvements have been made. We could be in a lot worse position ie having a high wage bill while in a relegation battle and no permanent manager.
