Hi Eds,

Rumours circulating the tabloids about Liverpool tabling an offer for Higuain.

I am pretty sure you will say that no official offer has been made, but are we interested in him?

I can only assume that pursuing a striker, especially one that expensive, means that arrangements have been made for Benteke already.

Or is it all just balderdash?

Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has not sold Benteke and has not made any offer for or shown any interest in Higuain.}

Evening Eds,

Can you see Liverpool looking to bring anyone in should Lambert leave? Getting a bit close to the wire for me.

I would be tempted to give Ibe a shot up front if we need someone instead of panic buying someone now (Gignac??)

Good luck to Lambert if he does leave, amazing for him to play for the club he loves, shame he didn't get to score a blinder at the Kop end!

Cheers in advance Eds


{Ed002's Note - I think their is sufficient cover - Rodgers may not agree - I dealt with Gignac earlier.}



25 Oct 2014 12:11:59
I 99% confident what the answer is going to be for this but have we shown any interest at all in Sami Khedira?

I think he would be perfect to sure up the midfield and give Stevie a bit of a break, plus give Rodgers some tactical freedom.

He could either play 1 DM in the diamond like we did last year, or 2 DM's against the bigger teams, without having to shoehorn Hendo into there.

Please tell me the transfer committee have this one tucked up their sleeves Eds :)


{Ed001's Note - sorry mate.}

1.) Why are you talking about buying a DM, Rogers wouldn't buy one in the summer when he had over 100 million to spend, he's not going to buy one now. Luxas will leave, SG will play every minute of every game, Henderson will be forced into covering for SG and Can will get a few games covering for SG too.
What a crock of ****.

Hi Eds,

Likely to be a firm "NO!" i'm sure, but does this Joe Hart story have any legs?

The "An Unreliable Newspaper" are reporting that he might be an option for us in January?

I can only assume that they have put 2+2 together and got Umbrella.

Caballero played under Pellegrini at Malaga and Liverpool's GK is coming under pressure, let's make a story. etc.

Would prefer him to Valdes though! Would there likely be a very high fee involved?

Cheers in advance!


{Ed002's Note - I really think the "No" is correct.}

1.) Hart is no less error prone than mignolet, also dwells on the ball

Hi all,

I'll do a much shorter version of my post in an attempt to avoid the abuse.

I have been told that should Moreno not be concluded in the next few days (while he is in UK) the club are happy with Johnson/Can at LB and Flanno/Manquillo at RB.

Our focus would then shift to a forward player, preferably a Winger/Striker but an out and out striker might also be considered.

Cheers all, looking forward to Sunday now, it's been too long!


1.) Couldnt be any further from the truth. We just signed Moreno.

2.) Good stuff! Looks like Moreno is joining so striker/winger left.

3.) Have you just made that utter nonsense up for the sake of it. Deal is done

4.) 12 Aug 2014 21:00:29
What about Enrique at left back as well?

Morning Ed002,

You have previously said that should Gerrard come back to Liverpool in a playing capacity that he would be subject to charges from the FA (as a result of his book and other things I assume? )

Would this also be the case if he were to come back in a coaching capacity, or indeed if he were to take the managers job at MK Dons?

Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - No, only if he returned as a player - a similar situation arose with another ex-player.}

1.) 18 Nov 2016 11:58:30
Out of interest, what would the penalty be? A fine/ ban etc? Or is it done on a case by case basis?

Many thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - It is a case-by-case basis. They don't write regulations for unprofessional thugs.}

2.) 18 Nov 2016 12:56:30
Well they write them for Rooney 😆.



29 Jul 2016 13:19:57
Saw on the rumours page something about Henderson going to Spurs.

Now I don't think it's true. But who would you guys like to have as captain if Hendo did leave?

Personally I can't see anyone in the squad who is 1) the sort of character needed to be a captain and 2) going to play regularly enough.

Perhaps a system like United had when Neville was getting towards the end of his career. He was the "Club Captain" but there was a "Team Captain" for the games, Ferdinand or Giggs usually.

Anyway, just thought it would be an interesting discussion away from left backs etc

Have a great day all, and a very happy birthday Ed001.


{Ed001's Note - cheers Dawn.}

1.) 29 Jul 2016 13:57:16
You know. I never even considered that my screen name could lead people to think I was called Dawn.

Was merely that I am a Red, and would like to see the dawn of a new period of dominance for Liverpool. Granted, references to an early 80s Patrick Swayze war film was probably stretching it.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha. That was a terrible film!}

2.) 29 Jul 2016 16:22:18
You mean it never "dawned" on you?


{Ed001's Note - groan.}

3.) 29 Jul 2016 18:03:09
Was hoping for a "post of the day" 😡.

{Ed001's Note - that is Ed002's place to pick.}



15 Jul 2016 14:19:57
Will we ever hear any information about the supposed "buy back clause" in the Ibe transfer? (Which i still believe is rubbish and completely unenforceable)

Do aspects of transfers such as that need to be reported to the FA/ PL/ UEFA in the same way that transfer fees do?

Or would it just be an agreement between the clubs, if it exists at all?

Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - There is no need to inform UEFA.}

1.) 15 Jul 2016 14:38:27
Cheers Ed :)

Do you think that there is some sort of buy-back clause in Ibe's deal? And if so how would such a thing work in practice?

Cheers again, sorry for all the questions.

{Ed001's Note - buy back? It really depends on the contract. The usual is just to set a price that the selling club can buy back the player at a later date.}



08 Jul 2016 14:17:45
Hi Eds (probably 1 for Ed001, as I know Ed002 doesn't like giving opinion on individual people much),

With Klopp signing a new long term deal at Liverpool it reminded me of an article I read the other day that said that the Premier League now has 5 of the top 6 managers in the world, Guardiola, Klopp, Mourinho, Wenger and Conte. presumably the 6th they were talking about was Simeone but i'm not sure?

We all know about Mourinho and Wenger, but i'd love to hear your opinions on Conte and moreso on Guardiola.

For me Guardiola has been given incredible squads that are far and above the quality of the other teams in his league and has quite obviously been successful because of that. But is he anything special?

Would love to hear some other views as well. And whether you think there are any other managers that should fit into the same bracket.

Cheers all, have a great day.


{Ed001's Note - I would say Ancelotti and Simeone have a right to be included in the top managers in the world list.

Difficult to judge Guardiola, he is a good coach, but is he a great one? It is hard to say as the quality of the players at his disposal has always been better than the rest of the league. It has to be said though, he really should have won more in terms of European trophies, which does let his record down. These next few seasons with City will be the first chance to really judge him.

Conte I do not particularly rate, not in terms of a long term manager. He is a short term firefighter, to step in patch things up and get them to a steady place. He has not shown any real tactical acumen, his Juve side struggled in Europe, where he was repeatedly shown up as lacking when up against better coaches. Again, these next few years are his real test, but he has to show a real improvement if he is to be a success. Personally I see him as nothing more than a steadying hand.}

1.) 08 Jul 2016 14:50:06
I wouldent call getting to a champions league final struggling personally.

2.) 08 Jul 2016 15:21:02
Simeone is the best manager in the world.
Continuously competing at the very top of European football with a club the size of Athletico, just imagine if he had the money of a Super Club!
For example if he went to Madrid. Scary.

3.) 08 Jul 2016 15:21:04
G-flex, it was Allegri that got them to the final not Conte.

4.) 08 Jul 2016 15:39:41
Juve reached the UCL final under Allegri, not Conte. I don't remember Juve making it past the knockouts in the UCL under Conte.

{Ed001's Note - exactly, Allegri took basically the same side to the final, while Conte did nothing in Europe but get found out.}

5.) 08 Jul 2016 16:17:02
Simeone for me, done a great job with Atletico given their position.

Mourinho has a great record but I think his invincible cloak has been tarnished, Wenger still has failed to deliver at the top level, Guardiola I think may or may not have it. we're about to find out, Conte I don't know enough about.

Of all of them, with the budget and rebuilding job we have, I'd really be happiest with Klopp, Simeone or maybe Emery, but of these Klopp is the most fun!

6.) 08 Jul 2016 17:23:12
I'm really happy we have Klopp.

I don't know too much about Conte but from having a little read of what eds said and if he struggled a bit in Italy i think he will find it a bit tough in England.

I rate Ancelotti a lot as well as Simeone both top top managers.

Mourinho has achieved a lot but i can't see him being any better than before at UTD, the only 2 players i like are DeGea and i think rashford has got a lot of talent and looks like he has a decent attitude. But he's not what Hazard was the season Chelsea won it so. I also think ibra could go 50/ 50 might work but he might struggle.

Guardiola is interesting as he always has had a team of the best players really, especially in Germany their isn't a club who's got the finances of BM. Where as at city quite a lot of the players i would say are declining a little bit. Though if De bryne and silva and fit and playing well and can get aguero playing more i think he will have a decent first season.

7.) 08 Jul 2016 17:57:35
Surprised you didn't add Bielsa to that list, Ed001. Probably because it was EPL, was it?

- Krishna.

9.) 09 Jul 2016 15:23:13
G-Flex, it was Allegri who got Juve to the CL final, not Conte. In fact, Allegri, has a much better record overall in Europe than Conte had. Ed is right, Conte struggled big time in Europe and even didn`t get out of the group stage.



27 May 2016 10:01:49
One for Ed001 if you're not too busy mate.

I know you've said that you don't really like the loan system and would prefer to keep players at the club to develop them.

But are there any players that you would consider loaning out for next season?

Personally I would give Ward, Brannagan and Chirivella loans to Championship clubs, as I think they are all capable of making the step up to playing every week.

And I would probably let Ibe have a loan to a Premiership club (Southampton please! ) as I think he is a great talent but needs to come out of the pressure cooker a bit and start enjoying playing regularly again.

One final thing, are there any clubs in your opinion who use the loan system well? And are there any success stories from the loan system? (I an only really think of Coutois)

Thanks in advance mate, all the best.


{Ed001's Note - Ward is the only one for me. No clubs use the loan system well as it is so inconsistent.}

I genuinely think that Fonte is one of the most underrated centre backs in the league. He made Lovren look excellent and is now making the overrated Van Dijk look excellent as well.

If he was a few years younger all the major teams in Europe would be after him i'm sure.

Would love to hear your opinion on what we should be doing in January Ed001?

As Villa don't look like getting near promotion this season I think Amavi would be a good bet. He's still young and wouldn't need to be thrown straight in as we have Milner there playing well. Klopp could ease him in over the next 6 months to get him ready for 1st choice next year.

Apart from that, unless we can suddenly pluck a world class CB out from somewhere I am happy with the squad for the rest of this season.

Cheers in advance.


{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced we need to do anything in January personally. I would rather see the youngsters given chances. Juanma at left back looks promising. If we buy players like Amavi, it is like telling Juanma to give it up. We do need a centre back, if Matip is going to continue to struggle with injuries. If not, I would prefer to wait until the summer.}

I read that as "the insane rumour"

Most of the "rumours" on here are insane if they aren't from the Eds.

We keep hearing that Klopp has final say when buying players, and I don't doubt that at all.

But what happens when selling players Eds? Would the board ever step in and say "Doesn't matter how much you want to keep him, this offer is too good, we're selling him"

Or does Klopp have final say on outgoings as well?

Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that.}

So just because they play for Liverpool it makes them not awful or infuriating?

Get real! You can criticise players and still be a fan. Balotelli has done absolutely nothing as a Liverpool player to warrant any support from fans, in fact he's done the opposite.

IF, and it's a big if, but if a Chinese club comes in for him at the amounts we have seen for Oscar etc then I think we should sell.

The guy is a fantastic player, a great guy by all accounts and a hard worker. But I think the demands of the Premier League are just too much for his body and after all his problems a bit of a payday in China to let his body heal would be a good idea for him too.

KP Boateng and Obafemi Martins are both correct

Pierre Wome was a cracking shout but unfortunately Wikipedia is lying, he never scored for Espanyol.

As a Welshman I am probably a bit biased towards Davies, but I don't think he deserves the jip that he gets from most.

I think he is a dependable defender, but not much more. He's not going to set the world alight, but he's also not going to let himself be caught out too much.

He has proven for Wales that he has the positional sense for a more defensive role, but as you say has played most of his career as a LB.

I don't think he would be a long term solution, he's just not that good.

Is he better than Moreno? Oh hell yes. Is he what we need? No not really. Would I be annoyed if we bought him? Depends on price. Which is likely to be expensive given his performances for Wales and the fact Spurs are a rival.
