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.}



17 May 2016 11:37:31
Hi Eds, any truth to report that we're one of 3 teams to enquire about Porto's Brahimi?



{Ed002's Note - Brahimi is certainly of interest to others but I am not aware of Liverpool looking to him. And is another AM player really what the club wants?}

1.) 18 May 2016 12:45:04
Didn't you hear ed? Next season's formation is 0-0-10-0.

2.) 19 May 2016 06:05:41
At least Migs won't be in goal then!

A bit early but Happy New Year to all the Eds and fellow reds.

Here's to a great 2017.


{Ed007's Note - Happy New Year to you.}

You stated recently that you don't think Origi will ever be world class. Out of interest, what do you think his ceiling is?

Do you think he could become a 20-goal per season player?


{Ed001's Note - depends on the team he is playing in. He could have hit 20 this season, if he had been first choice. I think he is top class, but world class is just for those, imo, that are first choice in any team in the world. He is not going to reach a Ronaldo/Messi level, where every team would make room for him, but he could make that next level down.}

1.) 17 Dec 2016 22:59:52
So just Ronaldo and Messi are world class in your opinion Ed? The next level down would be Aguero, Suarez, Bale kind of level?

2.) 18 Dec 2016 00:13:27
Thanks ed1. I see what you were getting at now. Thanks for the reply mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate and yes Pipss.}



16 Dec 2016 16:57:45

Would love to have your view: If Sturridge is fit, do we need to play him Monday?

Or should he be on bench?


{Ed001's Note - bench, unless one of the three up top are injured.}

1.) 17 Dec 2016 01:11:29
Bench until he can prove he deserves to start over them not just on Monday but going forward because for right now, he doesn`t deserve to start over any of the front three currently.



13 Dec 2016 08:12:12
Hello Eds and fellow reds,

Just a quick post re the GK situation. I've been looking at stats and have the following information:

Mignolet: Games played (gp) : 5
Goals Conceded (gc) : 8
Clean sheets (cs) : 0

Karius: gp: 10
gc: 12
cs: 3

I know who I'd rather have in goal.


1.) 13 Dec 2016 08:33:29
I never trust stats for GKs, too many factors to consider. Use your eyes and intuition. Do you agree ed?

{Ed001's Note - you can use all of them together, as you need your eyes to give the stats context. Those stats given there are too limited to have any real relevance.}

2.) 13 Dec 2016 08:42:48
Migs is not an improvement on Karius, it's like going back to your ex when the current one is struggling. She was never good enough hence you moved on.
What is this love affair with Mignolet lately. The page unanimously agreed to have a new GK in the summer.

3.) 13 Dec 2016 09:15:39
What annoyed me at the game was the amount of "fans" around me and throughout the stadium yelling abuse at karius every time he touched the ball even at 1-0.
Fine to have an opinion even express it but at times in that match the fans made it tense every time the ball was in our half. This is extremely impactful in my opinion when we were trying to play out from the back as you need confidence (and for the most part karius and the back line were very good with the ball at their feet) . I just don't agree with the riskiest part of our game being made even more difficult for the players by our fans.
This is added to when there were boos anytime the ball was kicked long. Very difficult for our defence to gain any confidence from the crowd at the moment in my opinion.

4.) 13 Dec 2016 10:32:26
Shane, those you were talking about, they are Liverpool fans?

5.) 13 Dec 2016 10:54:37
Yeah I was shocked I get to a game a year at best but that was one of the worst atmospheres I've experienced anyway.
Nearly came to blows with the guy beside me as he was yelling vile abuse from the start at karius and lovren. I told him not to turn up to only be a cynical . what's worse is at 2-1 down he was almost happy that he had "been proved right" it was rather pathetic.

6.) 13 Dec 2016 12:03:00
Oh. I remembered when I first get to know about Liverpool, I read somewhere about how most were praising the fans for supporting not just the team, but sometimes even the oppositions. Quite shocked and dissappointed to know this Shane.

7.) 13 Dec 2016 14:15:17
Sorry you had to go through that, Shane as that was disgraceful. Unfortunately, fans like that exist at every club.

Harry, makes a great point. Migs is a failure, FACT. We all were furious when Klopp gave him a new contract at the very time he was being hammered in the media. That was his way of protecting him and we all agreed that a new GK was needed.

He brought in Karius and now suddenly, temporary amnesia is setting in and many now think Klopp is unfair to Migs and conveniently forgot that Migs had been atrocious for three years and did not play a single preseason game until Karius broke his hand. Had he not, he would have started the season as no. 1 GK. If Migs was that great, he would not have been a failure and Karius wouldn`t be here.

The stats don`t tell the whole story, tho. Karius has been a lot better than Migs as he has made saves that Migs would have let in as he led the PL in goals conceded on the first shot on target last season. Some good shot stopper, he is. Karius is the starter and should be given enough time (not 9 pathetic games) to prove himself as the talent and potential is definitely there.

8.) 13 Dec 2016 14:37:23
The irony in saying support the player who's struggling then proceeds to slag off the other player.

9.) 13 Dec 2016 15:51:57
Kman, no irony at all.
One has struggled consistently for 3 years, you of all people have probably slagged him off the most.
The other is young, clearly talented (2nd best goalie in Bundesliga last season), and has only had ~10 games so far. Despite only making 2 major mistakes, the fans are already on his back, even before the West Ham game.

10.) 13 Dec 2016 18:17:16
Harry, have you never been "back to your ex when your current one is struggling"?
You're missing out mate 😉.

11.) 13 Dec 2016 18:16:24
Thank you for the response, Shewsbury as you took the words right out of my keyboard. Kman, Migs was already deemed to be average the day he arrived but like many others, I was willing to give him a chance and he did have some good games for us. Unfortunately after three seasons unchallenged as the no. 1 GK, I will no longer support a known and verifiable failure. That is not slating him. That is verifiable facts.

I personally didn`t care who we brought in provided Migs was no longer GK anymore as I was fed up with him costing us goals (and there`s a long list of those) . Karius has come in and I am prepared unlike many knee jerk posters on here, to give him enough time (not 9 pathetic games) to prove me wrong or right about his highly regarded potential.

If I didn`t judge Migs after 9 games, I will not judge Karius after 9 games either. That is only fair, right? Karius needs my support as Migs needed mine and I gave it to him until he proved to be a failure. I propose many posters do the same because getting on his back unnecessarily will not help him.

12.) 13 Dec 2016 18:32:39
Ron my legend
Lol of course 😉. She stays nearby for the same reason.

14.) 13 Dec 2016 22:47:45
Karius has had a shocking couple of games but doesn't mean he's down and out, he'll be fine, done well considering he's just come to this league and is still young, watch him shine next season. I wouldn't be too happy to see Migs back in goal, he's nothing short of useless, he could do well for a championship team but not Liverpool.

15.) 13 Dec 2016 23:30:32
Harry, a small edit to your post, we wanted a better keeper, Karius isn't that yet. If we keep falling behind the leaders the calls will only get bigger.

16.) 14 Dec 2016 06:25:58
I didn't hear any abuse of Karius on Sunday apart from the odd "what was he doing? " after the 2nd goal went in. It was soon drowned out by singing.
Clattenburg got booed twice and a half time.
Andy Carroll got a nice round of applause when he came on.

Morning Ed1,
I know it's hard to predict but do you think we'll sign a couple of squad players in January.

The reason I ask is because I can't see us paying the excess for some of the players we've been linked with (Draxler and Pulisic for example) .

Thanks Ed and Merry Xmas to you and all the other Eds and Reds.


{Ed001's Note - personally I expect nothing to happen this January. While the club are looking for players, they want ones for the long term, rather than just squad players. It is very difficult to get those in this window.}

Ed2, what does the agent stand to gain from making up a list of teams who have watched his client? Is it just in the hope that another club panics and starts watching the player? If so, does it ever work?



{Ed002's Note - It gets publicity as he tries to raise the profile of his player and gets his name out there as well. Clubs have to be a little bit careful nowadays with African players taken through the Far East and Belgium - and of folks hiding beind the Cotonou Agreement in Spain where African and Caribbean players are not counted against non-EU quotas so there is a periodic influx of Africans, often young and from poor families. I don't know of any interest as I have said but would be sceptical unless it were confirmed by Anderlecht (who are very open as a club) that there has been some sort of approach. Liverpool were represented at least once at a game involving Anderlecht this season but I am not aware of where the interest was - but I would suggest Dendoncker or perhaps even Tielemans may have been looked at.}

The last time I went to Anfield (this is a while ago as Rafa was manager) we parked in some blokes back garden. He had basically dug it out. We were surprised to see it still there when we returned. Only cost £5.

{Ed001's Note - I am going back to Dubai in the New Year. At least there I can watch all the football and don't have to get up ridiculously early to cover the gaps in the editing times. Plus I have a new project I was intending to work on that I can do there properly. It is better for my health to have the sea air as well, here it is so dry it is not good. Oh and they all speak English there, as my Spanish is appallingly bad.}

Maybe we should give Ejaria a run out instead of Origi. Put him in midfield with Henderson and Wijnaldum/ Lallana, play whichever one of Wijnaldum/ Lallana isn't in cm on the left wing, then play Firmino in the centre and Mane out wide right. Alternatively we could try Stewart instead of Ejaria (assuming he isn't injured) .

On an ever so slightly different note Ed1, do you think that we should bring forward our plans to sign a lb/ cb?



{Ed001's Note - only if there are the right players available for the right price.}
