Ed1, is there any indication whether we're getting a ban yet? Everything seems to be on hold whilst we wait.



{Ed002's Note - I am not going to bother him with this. No ban will happen without an investigation, a charge and a hearing. Right now, the Premier League asked for Liverpool to provide further information and aside from an apology about initially lying to the FA again, is where we are. A ban will not come out of nowhere - that is not how the process works. Move on there is no charge at this time - but perhaps there will be - but there will not be any announcement of a ban.}

1.) 15 Jun 2017 07:55:55
Thank you for your reply Ed. So any delay over transfers is down to the club then.

It seems like the wind has been blown out of our sales somewhat.

{Ed002's Note - You do appreciate that the transfer window is not open Nick?}

2.) 15 Jun 2017 08:05:59
Sorry, yes Ed I know but at one point two weeks ago it sounded like we were on the verge of signing vvd and Salah. Now it seems like nothing is happening.

But as you say, I should appreciate the fact that there is lots of summer left for transfers.

{Ed002's Note - I understand that folk came out and said "done deal" and I stood back from commenting. There is little point in me explaining any more after everything that has been said. I am sure there will be many, many marquee signings conformed by the club before the transfer window opens.}

3.) 15 Jun 2017 08:15:00
Yes you're right. Sorry Ed, although I can assure you I'm not looking for any 'marquee' signings, just good players joining the club.

{Ed002's Note - I expect Liverpool to add a number of players to improve the squad this summer - but it doesn't need to be before the window has opened Nick.}

4.) 15 Jun 2017 08:22:08
Thanks for all your time and all your replies ed2. You're very good to us reds fans.

{Ed002's Note - If they are good questions Nick they are worth answering.}

5.) 15 Jun 2017 08:38:19
Hi ed02, sorry to bother you. How come clubs can confirm they've signed a player and share pictures of him signing his contract in their teams shirt before the window has opened? Lindelof and tolisso for example. Is this just a sort of pre contract agreement but the transfer will not go through until July? Sorry if it's been asked before.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of what has happened with Manchester United showing picture of Lindelof - but again, the international transfer window open July 1. Agreements can be reached but transferser not registered.}

6.) 15 Jun 2017 09:57:36
You can sign a player at any time, it is simply an agreement between clubs to end one contract and start another.
You can only register a player as your player from July 1st or January 1st.
What I suspect is happening is clubs are agreeing the terms of a transfer which will go through on July 1st, but the transferring club is happy for the player to ceremonially sign a contract in front of the media and wear a club shirt.

7.) 15 Jun 2017 10:44:23
Oh and by the way,

Do you know if we are getting a ban or not? it's just no one has asked it the last 10 minutes and I think everyone might be getting worried something has changed in the last 10 minutes and we do not know about it.


8.) 15 Jun 2017 11:33:13
Cheers Ron and ed02 👍🏼.



16 Jul 2016 16:40:15
Ed2, I apologise if this has been answered, I did look but couldn't see an answer:

Zielinski has apparently made up his mind. Does that mean he's off to Napoli and not Liverpool?



{Ed002's Note - The player wants to play for Liverpool but Liverpool don't want to pay for him so Milan is his other option.}

1.) 16 Jul 2016 16:54:13
Thanks for the quick reply Ed, much appreciated.

2.) 16 Jul 2016 21:09:18
How far apart are we and his club?

{Ed002's Note - Not too much but Udinese don't want to negotiate with Liverpool.}

3.) 16 Jul 2016 23:28:40
Sly saying he's had talks with Udinese could this mean he's asked them to negotiate with us and sorted something out? Only time will tell I suppose.

4.) 17 Jul 2016 09:37:06
Heya ed002, any idea if udinese have any desire to lay a complaint against lfc for allegedly tapping up zielinski? Or are these things sometimes sorted hetween clubs behind closed dooors?

{Ed002's Note - I am sure they are not looking to complain. The last time Liverpool were caught a grovelling Ian Ayre apology and a tail of slime were enough to stop any action.}

5.) 17 Jul 2016 10:03:37
Ah k thanks for reply. In some ways it would seem a shame that there be no formal action, even if it would be against us.

{Ed002's Note - The expectation is that Liverpool and Klopp would behave in a respectful manner toward other sides. They don't - and everybody knows that.}

6.) 17 Jul 2016 10:56:39
Cheers ed.



22 Jun 2016 14:02:04
Ed1, do you think that we'll possibly only pursue Mane if Coutinho does decide to leave?

Or have the papers actually got it right that he's Klopp's no.1 target?


{Ed001's Note - Klopp does like him, and it is nothing to do with Couts.}

1.) 22 Jun 2016 14:16:13
Thanks for the quick reply Ed.

Do you think Couts still wants to leave? I hope he doesn't but I think he may have his mind made up.

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

2.) 22 Jun 2016 15:50:41
I remember after the Southampton game and Mane scored against us (could have been a brace? ), Klopp wrapped his arm around him and they exchanged a few words. lots of smiles and laughs between them.

3.) 22 Jun 2016 18:10:23
Apparently, they exchanged numbers and shirts then went off to Gusto for a good scran.

4.) 22 Jun 2016 20:15:12
Bloody tapping him up!

5.) 23 Jun 2016 01:23:58
Don't know what Mane would have to do with Coutinho. They play in different positions.



05 Jun 2016 20:50:28

Rather than chuck another random name at you I was wondering if there were any new developments (on any deals) that you could share?



{Ed001's Note - such as? I don't get what people expect to change each day? I know the newspapers make up some new angle each day, but that is purely about selling copy, not about the actual events.}



25 May 2016 18:36:44

We got a gk nice and early. Do you think we'll push for a left back next? Also, do you know if the interest in Zielinski has faded and we prefer Dahoud or was that paper talk?


{Ed001's Note - yes a left back is already pretty much done, Chilwell. Zielinski's chances have faded thanks to the way it was handled. We really annoyed Udinese so there is little chance of a move happening. Dahoud was another option but is too expensive.}

1.) 25 May 2016 19:03:52
Do you know if there is anything in the reported move for Brahimi ed?


2.) 25 May 2016 19:03:52
Do you know if there is anything in the reported move for Brahimi ed?


{Ed001's Note - I have no idea. Sorry.}

3.) 25 May 2016 19:22:36
Since Zielinski and Dahoud aren't possible (shame, Dahoud looks a proper player), any idea whether we're targeting another midfielder, Ed?

4.) 25 May 2016 20:24:17
Ed001 - you said above a LB is pretty much done. Are you able to say who? Hector?

Over the moon we managed to get Karius early.

Thanks as always for the hard work!

{Ed001's Note - already said, Chilwell.}

5.) 25 May 2016 20:30:06
Ante Coric buddy.

6.) 25 May 2016 20:41:10
Sorry ed, completely read that wrong. Thought you said Chilwell and Zielinkski chances have faded!


7.) 25 May 2016 20:33:31
Ed any idea who the club will look at in midfield if Zielinski and Dahoud are ruled out?

{Ed001's Note - not yet I don't sorry.}

8.) 25 May 2016 22:16:18
Hi Ed 001, do you know any preffered player except for Those two midfielder?

9.) 26 May 2016 16:54:50
ED001, what can you say about Chilwell's defensive talents?

{Ed001's Note - not seen enough to be sure, but he seems decent enough.}

25 Jun 2017 10:22:37
Morning Ed1, hope you are well?

Earlier today you suggested that it is either Oxlade-Chamberlain or Keita and we've decided to go for the Ox.

Does that mean our interest in all other midfielders (Paredes, Obiang, Carvalho etc) has passed?

Many thanks.


{Ed001's Note - no I did not.}

1.) 25 Jun 2017 10:35:23
Sorry buddy I must have misread what you said. Is Ox just the alternative to Keita then?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 25 Jun 2017 10:50:59
It was said that we are not chasing Kieta as he does not want to leave and Rbl do not wish to sell. Ed said Ox wants to join us and Klopp wants him a a deal is likely at this stage. The other CM's mentioned would seemingly not be looked at as well stacked in that area.

3.) 25 Jun 2017 12:16:07
Ed001 advocated in favour of Pedro Obiang a while ago as a centre midfield option and he's not a bad shout in all fairness, he's certainly better in that position than Ox.



18 Jun 2017 21:15:27
Hi Ed1,

There were reports in Portugal today that even though we're likely to sign Salah we're still interested in Martins. Do you see that as being likely? That would be 3 right wingers in the squad (I know Salah can play LW) who all cost at least £30m.

Also as an aside, do you think we would have sent a scouting team to the Euro u-21 tournament?

Thanks in advance mate.


{Ed001's Note - I very much doubt there is interest in signing both. Yes we have scouts at the Euro U21s.}

1.) 18 Jun 2017 21:37:05
Thanks for your reply Ed1. Out of interest, are there any specific players we looking at?

{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head I don't know. I would have to ask. I will try and find out for you. I was going to wait until after and ask who impressed to be honest, as that is probably more likely to matter long term.}

2.) 18 Jun 2017 21:44:51
OK cheers Ed1. I watched Spain yesterday and that lb Gaya looks quick but a bit Moreno-like with his tendency to get forward. (you mentioned him recently I believe) .

{Ed001's Note - yes, he is the one I would go for personally, he has a lot more quality to his play than Moreno.}

3.) 18 Jun 2017 22:27:35
Watched Portugal Serbia yesterday, Ruben neves was excellent. He's only 19 but his distribution and technical qualities are extremely impressive. One to keep an eye on for sure.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 00:03:27
Dahoud maybe? I feel we're still looking at a CM and Keita looking unlikely?

5.) 19 Jun 2017 01:03:12
Dahoud has joined Dortmund.



15 Jun 2017 07:44:46
Ed1, is there any indication whether we're getting a ban yet? Everything seems to be on hold whilst we wait.



{Ed002's Note - I am not going to bother him with this. No ban will happen without an investigation, a charge and a hearing. Right now, the Premier League asked for Liverpool to provide further information and aside from an apology about initially lying to the FA again, is where we are. A ban will not come out of nowhere - that is not how the process works. Move on there is no charge at this time - but perhaps there will be - but there will not be any announcement of a ban.}

1.) 15 Jun 2017 09:48:30
Things are not on hold because we're waiting for the FA.

2.) 15 Jun 2017 11:06:54
They are on hold because we are doing what we always do. can't blame ayre this time.



08 Jun 2017 11:59:11
Ed1, can I ask your opinion on what you see as the way forward now for the rest of the summer?

If you were in charge of transfers would you leave both VVD and Salah, apologise and move on?


{Ed001's Note - no way. We have to make things right for the players and the clubs or we will struggle to attract players in the future. That has to be the priority, doing what it take to put things right with Southampton and Roma.}

1.) 08 Jun 2017 12:24:22
Ed001 do you think that the best possible action for us is to back our apology up with cash, negotiate a price for both, pay up, take the players and apologize again then leave matters alone. Prove our apology by doing things correctly in future. Not that I think this will at all happen. We don't seem to have any honour anymore.

{Ed001's Note - yes that seems the best course of action now.}

2.) 08 Jun 2017 12:34:59
Do you think that's what we will do then Ed?

Thanks for all your replies Ed. You ed2 and ed25 have the patience of saints (no pun intended) putting up with us lot!

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I can't see us doing that for both players, no. I think the cost would be just way too much to do so.}

3.) 08 Jun 2017 12:43:14
We would lose all credibility within the footballing fraternity if we left players high and dry. We all know transfers can be long, protracted and complex, sometimes. If we're seen as a club that will pull out because things get hot or we don't know to conduct them, few teams/ players would want to risk starting negotiations or take them seriously. I think the only way out is for LFC to find the ways for both players to end up in LFC shirts without swallowing too high of a financial penalty/ pill. I don't know if it's possible. Both incidents will be classed as "ugly" transfers but we've all seen enough of those and they get brushed aside, in time. What doesn't get forgotten is players getting hung out to dry or a club's incompetence in carrying out an essential aspect of its activity - transfers.

4.) 08 Jun 2017 12:43:15
So we'll be missing out on vvd then probably? Especially if the £70m touted by ed2 (I think) is what they want.

{Ed001's Note - nothing is certain yet mate. Saints might be willing to accept different terms knowing that VVD wants out.}



07 Jun 2017 19:34:06
Ed1, do you think we'll move on to a new cb target now or has our appalling behaviour with vvd effectively ended our attempts to sign one) since he was the only apparent target.

Also, as a caveat, would it have been the premier league who made us apologise for the way we treated vvd or would that have been what Southampton wanted?

Thanks Ed.


{Ed001's Note - I have no idea right now with regards to either question.}

1.) 07 Jun 2017 19:47:39
OK thanks for replying though Ed1, do you think we'll ever learn?

{Ed001's Note - no, sadly not.}

Thanks Ed1. Is it the minor details details that usually make the negotiations last so long or is it just the overall process?


{Ed001's Note - usually ironing out the details, though payment terms are not really minor.}

27 Jun 2017 07:31:42
Ed1, may I ask how a deal is worked out after the initial contact please? For example, Liverpool have enquired about the availability of Player Y (for this case we'll assume they haven't tapped him up) . How would a fee be calculated from there? Is it as simple as finding a middle ground between what the buying club wish to pay and what the selling club wish to receive?



{Ed001's Note - not quite that simple, as there is also the details such as when the payments are received, in what amounts at a time, if there are add ons, potentially buy-back clauses and many other minor details too.}

Ox more versatile than Martins though. Good option off bench too.

Morning Ed, out of interest, if we do buy a make-do lb do you envisage Milner staying first choice?

Thanks mate.

Ed1 do you think that Klopp will adopt the same attitude to the League and FA cup that Rafa used to have? (Basically just using it for backup players and youth) .

Other than that I'm not really sure how the younger players will get a game.


{Ed001's Note - it will be a mixed team I expect.}

What are people on about thinking we need a fancy new £70m goalscorer? Sturridge, when fully fit, will score plenty of goals (to be fair he got 3 in 7 starts this year. He also added 4 in the efl Cup) . Firmino will get goals, Coutinho will get goals, Mane will get goals. Lallana, Henderson and Wijnaldum have goals in them too. (That's ignoring Can, Origi and any any wingers or midfielders) .

An overvalued striker isn't going to help solve our defensive problems and that's what we really need help with. Last season, if we'd had an actual defense who could defend we could have been talking higher than 4th.
