Morning Eds,

The Liverpool Echo are linking us with a player called Lucas Paqueta and I was wondering if you could confirm (or deny) this interest and perhaps tell us a little bit about the player?

Thanks in advance.

RedNick

{Ed002's Note - It is an interesting question. I am not actually aware of Liverpool making any approach for Lucas Paqueta at this time. The only direct approaches for the player I am aware of are from Benfica (who can't afford him) and Milan (who have struggled to get the AM they want and have made an approach about LP who would have been 4th or 5th option - but due to their finances and what they have to spend they would need to sell Suso to make it viable. Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all looked at the player on more than one occasion but none has shown an interested in taking it any further at this time.}


1.) 27 Jul 2018 12:03:34
I think you said we had looked at him Ed a good while a go to be fair mate.

{Ed002's Note - Ok - I take it all back, lots of clubs look at players "a good while ago". What I am saying is recently, but I will try posting just the bare minimum so you can stop you constant whining.}


2.) 27 Jul 2018 12:04:14
Whilst i haven't heard anything concrete on any interest from us other than that we have scouted him along with 15,000 other players.

from a Brazilian perspective he is seen as on of the big future stars along with the two "cheap" Madrid signings.


3.) 27 Jul 2018 12:06:04
Thanks Ed2.


4.) 27 Jul 2018 12:26:16
Happy thoughts Ed02.


5.) 27 Jul 2018 13:33:01
Sorry Ed wasnt whining at all mate, just seem to remember you mention it that's all.


6.) 27 Jul 2018 18:01:39
Looks like a real crowd pleaser, plenty of flicks and tricks.
Not sure if he’s a Klopp style player but he’s a talented lad.

What’s his price bracket Ed002? 😘.

{Ed002's Note - Around €50M.}


7.) 28 Jul 2018 19:28:15
Thanks mate 👍.

Some rumoured outs from a British tabloid:

Origi - Valencia interested
Ings - Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Ham
Mignolet - Fulham interested
Woodburn - Norwich and Sheffield Utd interested in loan
Markovic - Anderlecht, Getafe and Leganes all interested.
Grujic - Cardiff and Lazio interested in loan deal.
Also Ojo and Chirivella are available apparently.

I know some of this isn't news as the Eds have confirmed interest but thought I should share.

RedNick

1.) 24 Jul 2018 07:54:33
I think this is good for the club and the players involved. Karius looks likely to leave if anyone will have him so guess we should be looking at an experienced back up goal keeper. Such a shame Danny Ward has left the club.


2.) 24 Jul 2018 07:56:18
Thanks RedNick. Sessegnon + cash for Mignolet? ;-)


3.) 24 Jul 2018 08:35:10
Interest in Ojo from Wolfsberg, Reading and Middlesboro apparently, from same or similar source. I wasn't sure how many of all these links were current though.


4.) 24 Jul 2018 08:36:22
Saw the price we want for Origi is £27mil. If he was performing as he did a couple years ago then teams might take that, but doubt we'd get that for him now :/.


5.) 24 Jul 2018 08:52:06
Zed - I hope you meant Mingolet + Cash for Sessengon?


6.) 24 Jul 2018 08:52:17
The prices Edwards seems to want for these players look absurd though, and it could create several Markovic situations where the interested clubs simply walk away.

Origi - 15 mil
Migs - 12 mil
Markovic, Ojo, Chirivella - 5 mil each
Ings - 10 mil
GRujic - Loan

That's the best we will probably get for these players. And we should take the money if offers are made. 27 million pounds for Origi is just ridiculous, we ain't getting that from anyone so sell for 15 million or so rather than lose him for free next summer. The valuations for fringe players should be realistic.


7.) 24 Jul 2018 09:10:46
We've just sold our 3rd choice keeper who barely played a game for us for £12.5mil and you think we can't get more for Migs?
Might want to re-evaluate your prices.


8.) 24 Jul 2018 10:01:28
20 origi
14 ings
17.5 migs
17.5 sturridge
6.5 markovich
4 ojo

0 Karius (thats a joke, keep the poor lad hopefully alisson will push him to be better)


9.) 24 Jul 2018 10:03:08
Ward > Migs though ;)


10.) 24 Jul 2018 10:14:51
Ward is younger and has a good last season when out on loan - mignolet has proven he is questionable, so at least with ward you may get a good buy, mignolet has been around long enough to know what you’re getting.


11.) 24 Jul 2018 10:52:07
Surely if richarlison is worth £50 m then origi is worth £27m, more experience full international and tbf to lad has got a bit about him, where else are u going ro get an international striker for less then that?


12.) 24 Jul 2018 13:53:03
I think we need to realise that 15million does not buy you proven quality or even near it. We got 15m for Jordan Ibe and that even before Neymar transfer raised the price of everyone.
I don't get this Ward love, or rather how anyone thinks he is better than migs or karius. Yes he had a decent spell in the championship but he was at at club where he would have been getting praised for making routine saves and errors were overlooked. Whereas our keepers get the opposite.


13.) 24 Jul 2018 14:11:08
James Pearce has said Sturridge is staying. Personally I love Sturridge so would be good to have him around the team. We all hope he can stay injury free. We say it every season. A fit Sturridge is world class. And the sad truth is its probably not going to happen. But in the words of Micheal Scott, I am ready to get hurt again.


14.) 24 Jul 2018 20:21:22
If grealish from villa can go for 40plus then 27 for origi is more than fair. We should really insert a sell on clause too.


 

 

08 Jul 2018 09:29:09
Morning Ed1, hope you're well? Can I ask whether you think we'll go back in for Fekir or if you think we've moved on from him

I only ask because everything Aulas keeps saying suggests it's over.

Thanks in advance.

RedNick

{Ed001's Note - nothing has changed as far as I am aware.}


1.) 08 Jul 2018 10:15:00
He said the same thing about Lacazette last summer. The guy just loves to talk rubbish to anyone willing to listen.


2.) 08 Jul 2018 10:19:41
Sorry to jump in edd001 so do you think we still might go back in for him?

{Ed001's Note - yes, it still seems the most likely outcome. The lad wants the move, Lyon are willing to sell and Klopp wants him to join.}


3.) 08 Jul 2018 11:18:40
But his knee injury ed. We should steer clear.

Never sign someone who has had a acl, ox and ings are a little bit of proof.

It. doesn't matter wether is called over cautious. But someone who wants to turn like he does and not use to the league and in a pressing team like ours, it's got a high chance of reoccurring

Be frustrating to have ox and him out at the same time when we could of avoided it.

{Ed001's Note - when the only worry is the injury, I would say that makes him a good gamble worth taking, personally.}


4.) 08 Jul 2018 10:53:23
Aulas is doing right by his club and wanting the most for his club, you can’t argue with that. His methods are unorthodox but he gets what he wants which is a very good deal for Lyon. A tricky customer but if we want Fekir as much as Keita and VVD I trust the club to get it done.

P. s. he is also trying to drum up interest for a better deal, we all do the same if we are selling something so why should it be different for a player.

6.) 08 Jul 2018 11:20:12
To be honest, I think Aulas comments are him trying to test us again for another bid, he knows what he’s doing, can play hard ball all he wants but it’s clear he wants to sell Fekir, absolutely obvious he does, just wants to make himself look good beforehand, getting tired of the Fekir saga though I must say.


7.) 08 Jul 2018 13:22:30
Not when it's the knees. There season and career enders.

You would put 60 mil on him not suffering another acl in the next 5 season's with us?

Ings came 2 months into career, oxs 10 months.

It's to big of an injury to shake off as a gamble. It hits and he's gone for a season minimum. They usually follow with ankle and muscle problems after. We didn't see ings for 2 season's. The ox were not being for at least 12 months. Once he is back unfortunately he will suffer another Injury, probably muscle related.

Muscle problems you can always hope there down to the poor fitness programme and such but knees, ankles and back are impossible to overcomes even through excessive pain medication etc.


8.) 08 Jul 2018 14:33:40
Kloppsboss - have you seen the medical results and has chance to analyse them? Assuming the answer is no you're just making assumptions. Knee injuries Can be career enders but you have no idea what's happening with this knee.


9.) 08 Jul 2018 15:51:42
Wasn’t it us messing Lyon about with payment structures rather than the medical that stalled the talks?


10.) 08 Jul 2018 16:04:51
It's nothing to do with the medical my obnoxious friend.

He has already suffered an acl. I'm saying once a player has had an acl you should steer well clear.

Recently we have been bitten twice by that in ings and ox. Both suffered acl, we sign them, put them in klopps press and they both got hit again, Danny boy got hit twice.

It's just not a 60million pound gamble worth making.

{Ed002's Note - Why did Liverpool waste all of that time then? You are making the club sound more stupid than the fans.}


11.) 08 Jul 2018 16:21:49
I trust ed001 on this. None of us know what happened for real, if it is the knee, there will not be detailed info on Fekirs knee available for us. ACL injury could be careerending, but 98 % of athletes at a top level comes back to their former level. Reinjury is an area where there is produced little research about, but on studio shows a reinjury rate at 5,6 % (just 176 top athletes in the study) . There are big differences in secondary injuries (in ACL injuries), from non to meniscusinjuries, cartilage injuries, tendoninjuries and on and on. The medical staffs are getting better and better in handling these injuries, so if the real problem is Fekirs knee there is either a more complexinjury (most likelydende cartilageinjury), or there is a tactical matter to get the price down (or a different payment structure), or there is a whole different matter that we don't know anything about.


12.) 08 Jul 2018 16:30:41
We have another mystic meg it seems!

{Ed002's Note - It was about the money. That was explained at the time. If a club wishes to buy a player, they make an acceptable offer and everyone is happy.}


13.) 08 Jul 2018 16:52:38
Exactly Ed, some people just look into it more then what it actually is.


14.) 08 Jul 2018 17:14:50
Omg. What are you all on today.

Mr 002 I meant my comment wasn't about the medical not the club's decision why they pulled the transfer

As for the stats behind it, all I know is the medical staff did wonders for the ox and they could do nothing to prevent the acl from returning, nor could they when Danny's hit against Tottenham for the second time with us. Both came in self inflicted non worrying situations

As for your stats is that all of athletes from any sport because if it includes golf then it's going to sqiff he results a bit or are they including gks etc? Or is it just prem based because Torres had 2, ings had 2, ox has had 2.

This is the prem. It's klopps high pressing system. It's intense and fekir is someone who like to turn sharply.

I just wouldn't want to stick 60 mil on it not going again. Would rather make a little safer investment. What's the point in having fekir but he's out injured?

{Ed002's Note - You really should not post on matters such as this as you are justting caught up in a web of dribble.}


15.) 08 Jul 2018 17:30:42
Fair enough ed. Will steer clear in the future.

Fekir has never suffered an acl and unlike ox and Danny ings who both suffered secondary ones, he will not.

We should invest 60 million because there is absolutely no chance of another knee injury.

Apologies for getting involved with my silly comments!


16.) 08 Jul 2018 17:32:30
Also ed I am well aware the club are trying to get the price lower by complaining about the medical. I completely understand that.

I'm talking from a fact point of view. He has had a acl. There's more chance of it returning that not. Is it worth a 60 million pound investment to find out?

{Ed002's Note - Well obviously Liverpool thought it was - otherwise why waste their tiem and effort on the player?}


17.) 08 Jul 2018 18:03:04
I know the club thought it was, I'm just saying in my opinion I don't think it is a risk worth taking, that is all. As ings and the ox proved.

Thanks for the dialogue though dude/ dudet :)


18.) 08 Jul 2018 19:49:24
Hi ed01 I was just wondering whether or not you see Fekir as a guaranteed. Obviously, that's down to Klopp but I think the majority see him walking straight into the startin XI. I for one, don't see it this way I think Jordan Henderson is going to rise to the occassion and take up a place in the midfield 3 with Keita and Fabinho. Fabinho will definitely play as the deepest lying midfielder and Keita will be our box to box player. Ok I definitely see Fekir as a better attacking option and more of a goal threat than Henderson but Jordan will make our midfield harder to penetrate and he'll be able to slot in easier if Fab or Keita get caught out of position. That midfield would screen our back four quite adequately in my opinion and still leave us with an abundance of attacking options. Plus Jordan will pass the ball earlier which should help improve our fluidity. Sometimes these gifted dribblers like Fekir can tend to hold on tobthe ball a tad too long for my liking. However I would be made up if we do get Fekir and he breaks into the starting XI. Imagine the competition for spots with Ox still to come.

{Ed001's Note - nothing is guaranteed.}


19.) 08 Jul 2018 20:04:25
Thanks ed 01 Not the response I was looking for but never the less quick and honest.


20.) 08 Jul 2018 18:55:32
Any player can rupture anything at anytime. Why waste time and money on anyone if you think like that? The club, the people who have looked in to such things and have thought long and hard about whether it is a risk, or not, have decided that he is worth it. That should be enough. It's not your cash, try not to worry about how much is spent, and on whom.


21.) 08 Jul 2018 21:02:10
Kloppsboss - his ACL has only gone once, a year later he had a slight issue with his knee but he was only out for 3 weeks so not a serious one. Although his next knee injury came 5 months later and he was out for 1 month.

So far he hasn't reinjured his ACL keeping him out for too long, and he is still able to play the way he does.
If he only misses 1 month a season then it’s a lot better than if he kept rupturing his ligament and being out for half a season or more.

He was probably more likely to get injured during the world cup if it was as bad as you think.
He didn’t get many minutes and had to go full tempo straight away to keep up with the rest of the team when he did get on the pitch instead of warming into the game directly after a long warmup phase, that could have resulted in him stressing his knee with his movements but it hasn't :)
Wasnt finisged but lost my train of thought here so ima press send xD.


22.) 08 Jul 2018 21:02:50
ACLs were a huge issue years ago not anymore. Within the last 15 years there are numerous examples of players coming back from ACL injuries and excelling. van Nistelrooy, Keane, Shearer, there is loads more recent ones but too many beers this pm!

Had both knees done myself and came back stronger on both occasions albeit just at Irish League level. Fekir will sign Lyon are just being their usual hardselves to deal with.


23.) 08 Jul 2018 22:15:47
Alex oclade Chamberlain has just redone his after similar time boys. Like a few months ago. He's out till next year. Medical science has come on?

Danny ings did his twice, one whilst having a full rehabilitation programme under us.

Both did them in not obvious situations.

All I'm saying is its like would you rather buy a puppy or a dog that bit it's last owner on the arse. Sure it might never happen again but is it worth the risk?

They do have a high percentage of reoccurring in the prem, we have seen that over the past few years with our boys. Just imagine whacking 60 mil on the kid then fellaini or someone crashes his knee and that's it done. He's gone for the entire season.

Acl can happen to any player but your hedging your bets by buying someone who has never had one.

Pulisic for example. As good, huge love from klopp me

Or brandt. I just don't feel fekir is at that level where your like his quality just negates every bit of risk. Like a mbpape would or something. He's a good player but in the bracket of a lot of similar players.

I'm not wishing anything on him just more from a different perspective really couldn't stand going for him over a brandt or pulisic and then he is out for the season.


24.) 08 Jul 2018 23:36:03
nobody on this site has seen Fekir's medicals. The truth is we don't know had bad his knee is, and how likely a problem is to happen. That's why you pay professionals you trust to give you their opinion. Our recruitment was very poor before klopp arrived. If his knee checks out and he is a player we like, then we should try to find an agreement with Lyon. Simple as that.


25.) 09 Jul 2018 00:21:18
I actually agree with your opinion of recurrence Kloppsboss and there seems to be some facts to back it up which I have pasted below. What I think is that we have no idea what went on in medical but I am certain they are aware of the past injury, we do not know what the club plans are for the player, we are not football managers with detailed knowledge and experience at the highest level. We need to trust the club to make expensive decisions and simply welcome and support him if he arrives. If the lad gets injured again then so be it. but if he scores the winner in the next CL final. pay the price!

Paste:: Applies to US Football


Copied from US National Library of Medicine

Background

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a severe event for a footballer, but it is unclear if the knee injury rate is higher on returning to football after ACL injury.

Objective

To study the risk of knee injury in elite footballers with a history of ACL injury compared with those without.

Method

The Swedish male professional league (310 players) was studied during 2001. Players with a history of ACL injury at the study start were identified. Exposure to football and all time loss injuries during the season were recorded prospectively.

Results

Twenty four players (8%) had a history of 28 ACL injuries in 27 knees (one rerupture) . These players had a higher incidence of new knee injury of any type than the players without ACL injury (mean (SD) 4.2 (3.7) v 1.0 (0.7) injuries per 1000 hours, p  =  0.02). The risk of suffering a knee overuse injury was significantly higher regardless of whether the player (relative risk 4.8, 95% confidence interval 2.0 to 11.2) or the knee (relative risk 7.9, 95% confidence interval 3.4 to 18.5) was used as the unit of analysis. No interactive effects of age or any other anthropometric data were seen.


Conclusion

The risk of new knee injury, especially overuse injury, was significantly increased on return to elite football after ACL injury regardless of whether the player or the knee was used as the unit of analysis.


26.) 09 Jul 2018 07:59:18
Kloppboss and RedalLover. I wrote you a reply, but manged to post it on the trend believe this one.


27.) 09 Jul 2018 18:23:17
Like you say, this study is from 2001 and the sample size isn't really big enough to provide an accurate conclusion.
Rehabilitation techniques have significantly improved in 17 years so I would suggest this data is not appropriate to today's game.


28.) 09 Jul 2018 19:46:39
Bit late to this party but didn’t van nistlerooy’s original transfer to United get put on hold due to him rupturing his ACL? It pains me to say it still but he came back from that to have a long and successful career. injuries happen all the time, but it doesn’t mean a player can’t reach potential, look how good Fekir’s season was last year, he was incredible.


 

 

09 Jun 2018 17:11:37
Evening Ed1, to break the tedium regarding the will he/ won't he Fekir saga I was wondering if there was anything new regarding the apparent pursuit of Shaqiri? Are we definitely interested? Thanks in advance buddy, hope you're having a good weekend.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know anything about it at all or of any interest.}

Thanks for the reply Ed, and thanks Banjo.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

Ed002 - and he whimpers like a pre-pubescent schoolgirl a lot. Wow. Showing your true colours there.


 

 

17 Nov 2017 13:53:47
Afternoon ed2, I have a question re the players mentioned in the sharks pod if you don't mind?
Would it be safe to assume that if no more than Can and Coutinho leave (and we do end up with Gomes) we're only going to sign one of Meyer, Lamar, Brandt and Draxler (assuming we manage to get any of them)?

RedNick

{Ed002's Note - I can’t make assumptions like that. Liverpool will look to get rid of Markovic in January for reasons I explained.}


1.) 17 Nov 2017 21:58:51
OK, thanks for answering Ed.

Question for Ed1, do you see any scenario where Klopp sanctions a loan for Coutinho? Given the way he behaved whilst forcing his way out of the club it would suggest a bit of a u-turn.

RedNick

{Ed001's Note - if he believed Coutinho would improve the team then he would happily take him back.}


1.) 17 Jul 2019 21:14:58
After watching the window unfold it looks like it will be very busy the last week . I do expect some from Liverpool aswell but I think it will be cover and not the marquee player everyone craves every window . Ed001 how do you see it playing out?

{Ed001's Note - it should be very busy, just not for Liverpool unless someone leaves. The big issue to be remembered is that Europe's window doesn't shut when the English one does, so players could still leave the Prem after it shuts here.}


2.) 17 Jul 2019 21:36:27
Good god, can you imagine if real came in for mane after the window closes here.


3.) 17 Jul 2019 23:02:06
Robbie, they would be barking up the wrong tree cos we won't sell and even at that, Mane has realized his dream of winning the CL and is not angling for a move as of now so again, RM would be wasting their time were that to happen.


4.) 18 Jul 2019 00:32:12
Youre right redwolf, but if the payday was big enough?


5.) 17 Jul 2019 22:08:08
You still expect us to do some sort of business then Ed mate. Full back cover abc a attacking player to cover. I’m just surprised how late we have left it and not pursued any targets, are you?


6.) 18 Jul 2019 00:28:25
I'm with you ed, if coutinho does return then we can only assume that Klopp and co have some idea about how to get the best out of him. In that case I hope that it means a formation change.


7.) 18 Jul 2019 09:00:00
Zzzzzzzzzzz

Can we ban Coutinho questions please?


8.) 18 Jul 2019 10:38:25
If your not going to bring in quality to challenge the first 11, why bother bringing average players in to just bloat the squad, next season when Salah or mane leave that's when money will be spent and not to pacify some with marquee signings but to bring the squad back to the same level as the one that feel short in the league last season.


 

 

05 Jun 2019 11:02:31
Ed2, I have tried searching and asking but to no avail. Was it you who said it wouldn't be totally out of the question that Keita might leave? If so is it from his side (eg he hasn't settled) or the clubs (eg he hasn't been as good as they were hoping) .

Also, I know it may be difficult to quantify but how likely is it that this does happen?

Thank you.

RedNick

{Ed002's Note - Not me, sorry. I have provided a list who might well leave.}


1.) 06 Jun 2019 10:09:51
Ok, thanks Ed. Any idea what I could try as a search to get that list?

{Ed002's Note - Try "corey".}


2.) 06 Jun 2019 14:46:26
Keita ain't going anywhere. He'll get into his stride in second season. Of last season's first team squad Mignolet, Clyne, Moreno, Lallana, Sturridge and I'd guess Lovren.
Correct me if I'm wrong Ed002, but isn't Lovren more likely to leave than Matip should a CB be added? Although Lovren has a big personality and presence in the dressing room and I know Matip's had his critics, I'd personally rather keep him than Dejan.

{Ed002's Note - That has not been the case but given that Matip has played for the latter part of the season perhaps that has changed.}


 

 

03 Jun 2019 10:38:28
Hello,

Does anyone have the quote where one of the Ed's said it's not out of the question that Keita might leave? I tried search engine but there's been about 100 mentions of him just this week.

Thanks in advance.

RedNick

 

 

04 Jan 2019 19:10:00
Evening Ed1,
Do you think that it's strange we let Solanke go? He dropped from 2nd choice to surplus in no time.

I can't help but think we'll be leaving ourselves short without back up at RB too (with Gomez injured) . What's the plan?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - no, he was a poor buy and we got lucky to get a good price for him. Gomez will be back soon and we have youth players.}

Do you no how Gomez is coming along at all Ed please? I think it’s been nearly five weeks since his injury?

{Ed002's Note - About three weeks and he will be available for selection according to the club.}


2.) 04 Jan 2019 19:39:35
It can't come quick enough Gomez coming back, roll on three weeks.


3.) 04 Jan 2019 19:57:47
Tbf think Lovren has done well in their absence (think he was ok yesterday and got done by a world class striker), we now have a run of winnable games and we should be in a good position when he returns.

{Ed025's Note - he was poor to be honest WYred, the sooner gomez is back the better mate..


4.) 04 Jan 2019 19:50:02
Cheers Ed, bit longer than I thought tbh, think that will make it 7 or 8 weeks in total. Are well it is what it is I guess. Just hope we don’t get any more injury’s in the defensive area else we are going to be well short.

{Ed002's Note - The lesson has been learned about rushing players back. If he isback early then great - if he then gets injured then the riot act needs to be read.}


5.) 04 Jan 2019 20:10:29
Yeah i would agree with Ed025 WYred. Giving it away to Silva then Sterling in the box in the space of a minute, the sooner Gomez is back the better.


6.) 04 Jan 2019 20:22:32
Fair enough Ed002. Appreciate your answers and information mate.


7.) 04 Jan 2019 20:42:35
Lovren just seems to panic under pressure.
In defending and in general play. Even in injury time he’s headed the ball straight to them when under no pressure and they’ve broken on us.
Then chipping a straight ball up to VVD with his left foot when he had time to turn it onto his right.
He was the weak link and they exploited it.


8.) 04 Jan 2019 21:06:35
I mentioned a while back on a post that I didn’t think Lovren or Matip were title winning back up CBs and the majority disagreed with me.

Hopefully now more can see how poor he is in big games and will see the need to bring in a real solid option to back up VVD and Gomez (who, largely through bad luck, has had an injury every season he has been with us that’s had him out for multiple weeks) .

We need a solid option at RB to challenge TAA also so that Gomez can actually be rested, not rotated out to RB. With a rest he may avoid more injuries in future (I know a broken leg is not linked to a lack of rest directly, but a well rested player is less at risk of injuries) .


9.) 04 Jan 2019 21:10:36
Don’t get me wrong I can’t wait for Gomez to come back and he could of done things slightly differently but he is technically our fourth choice, VVD, Gomez and then Matip was played in a few games before Lovren.


10.) 05 Jan 2019 01:18:28
We have a relatively comfortable run of fixtures coming up for the rest of January which we should be able to navigate without needing Gomez to step in. Give the kid time to recover fully and get in some decent time on the training pitch before throwing him into the mix. The last thing we need is him sitting out for a longer period due to insufficient recovery time from his injury.


11.) 05 Jan 2019 23:24:36
Loveren has done ok past few weeks it wasn't his best game the other night against city but then again he wasn't the only player on the pitch to let himself down. Gomez is a great player but has also made mistakes in the past these blokes are human not robots.

Ed1, could I have your opinion on something please?

Why did Danny Ward leave Liverpool because he was only playing in the League Cup, to just join a different team where he is only playing in the league Cup? Had his relationship broken down with Klopp that much or was it something else?

Thanks mate, hope you're well and ready for Christmas.

RedNick

{Ed001's Note - he left because he thought he would get regular first team football.

Yes mate, parents are finally here so all's good. How about yourself?}


1.) 19 Dec 2018 17:42:05
Peter Schmeihel (spelling) was touted to leave for Chelsea and Ward was brought for his replacement. It all went wrong there.

{Ed001's Note - Kasper mate and you are right, that was the main issue that he stayed.}


2.) 19 Dec 2018 18:09:46
Oh jeez, why did I say Peter. My bad lol.


3.) 19 Dec 2018 19:01:06
Glad your parents got there ok Ed mate, enjoy.

{Ed001's Note - just about got here, no thanks to British Airways who refused to change their ticket as apparently me nan died on too short notice for them to change the ticket. They will regret it if a few thousand royals die, as that would put me in line for the throne, as it turns out. Me nan left some paperwork behind that shows her dad was the son of a Welsh lord, though it was hushed up because he was illegitimate. Long story, which involves numerous cover ups and changes of address to avoid the scandal being found out as the mother was the daughter of a vicar. She had a letter hidden away with some archbishop's seal or other on it and the envelope has a penny red on it, which alone makes it special. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be in a normal family, but nothing in my family ever turns out to be normal. I mean one uncle is a Murphy, possibly the most Irish name in the world, but me mam is into genealogy at the moment and has so far, after going back a couple of hundred years, found absolutely no connection with Ireland at all! Every other branch in the family has one, just not the most Irish named of all.}

If Man Utd fans were worried with OGS coming on board, how worried would they be with a Liverpool-supporting Ed001 on the throne?!

And I name thee King Tris I.

{Ed001's Note - I reckon I would make a great king.}


5.) 19 Dec 2018 21:58

You’d make a better queen


6.) 19 Dec 2018 22:49:48
We already have a king. You will have to be prince ed the first.


7.) 19 Dec 2018 20:14:25
Okay, we get the hint. You're Sir Ed One, from now on.

{Ed001's Note - sounds good.}


8.) 19 Dec 2018 21:03:30
Well Ed, I thought it was perfect been a Liverpool fan, now it just got better! boom, we have royalty in the house! :) .

Crazy from British Airways that though mate, what an absolute piss take that is. Ar*eholes.

{Ed001's Note - they are not the best.}


9.) 20 Dec 2018 23:03:24
I'm just about ready thanks Ed. Me and the wife hosting the in laws for the first time so hoping all goes smoothly. Merry Xmas all.

Read the posts would be the reply from one of the Ed’s mate. Even I can tell you it’s been done to death.

He can't officially become a Liverpool player until 1st July but why would a team delay the announcement until 13th May?

He appears to be on the lash in NYC. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Where do you live hailstones? I'll take that bet regardless (even though I also don't think we'll sign him)

Lol, ed25 that’s brutal. Not sure either Migs or Karius can be compared to Yashin. Collectively I think they make Chris Kirkland look like a worldie.
