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!

27 Apr 2017 11:01:37
Ed1, Question for you if you're around. Do you think Ings could score a hatfull if he can overcome his injuries? I have to be honest, I think he's the perfect striker for the system we play and was wondering what you thought?



{Ed001's Note - yes. I think he is a perfect fit for our system too.}

1.) 27 Apr 2017 11:13:35
Do you think he will be able to recover from two significant injuries Ed001? Not only physically, but mentally too, enough to stake a claim in our starting XI? It sounds like we're wanting to sign a forward this summer, so he would be competing with Origi, Firmino and another striker for a start if that's the case.

I really hope he makes it and becomes a top player for us because his attitude and work ethic is admirable.

Your thoughts Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - not immediately no. It will take him a while, but there is no reason why not.}

2.) 27 Apr 2017 11:22:40
Very skillful player who has an eye for goal and works very hard up front. He is excellent infront of the goal and his composure is top class. I am really looking forward to see him play.

3.) 27 Apr 2017 11:47:08
Left torn, then right acl torn. What is left of a player when u have both knee ligaments torn?

4.) 27 Apr 2017 12:43:00
Even worse it that they're repaired by taking a piece from the hamstring so he will be slower than he was too.

5.) 27 Apr 2017 12:52:08
Apparently he set himself a target of 'swimming the channel' in the pool and completed it a couple of days ago, Klopp has been incredibly impressed with his attitude while out this season. He may be back in training by 'early pre season', he deserves the best of luck, love to see him scoring goals before the year is out.

6.) 27 Apr 2017 13:21:51
Perfect for us. Perfect type player with a perfect attitude!

7.) 27 Apr 2017 14:23:09
Heard Ings has started jogging, that's a big start .

8.) 27 Apr 2017 14:52:29
Leek - the pcl.

9.) 27 Apr 2017 15:21:17
His missus is savage too!

10.) 27 Apr 2017 18:41:07
He'd have no chance of recovering if he was someone who relied on pace. But he doesn't - he's intelligent, hard working and has a good touch. None of those should be affected by his injuries long term.

11.) 27 Apr 2017 18:38:16
We should give him every opportunity to prove his fitness because when fit, he is pitch perfect for our system and has goals in him. His attitude is also phenomenal.

12.) 27 Apr 2017 18:40:53
He's done it before. Start of his career he did the same injuroes then went on to burnley and was fine for a few years until moving to us.

Didn't lose any pace first time round so hopefully gets through this unscaved.



07 Mar 2017 11:58:56

Really enjoyed reading your replies to a couple of posts this morning.

Out of interest, who would you like the club to sign in the summer? I know Klopp seems to like Brandt but to me he doesn't improve the areas that I think we need to improve (plus buying another attacker seems to mean less youth players get a chance) .

Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - I would like Donnarumma, Tierney, Medel, but that is not going to happen. To be honest I think the most important signing we could make is a goalkeeping coach. That has to be the number one priority and Xavi Valero surely can't be the only top class one about, so why have we never replaced him effectively? Until we sort out the goalkeeping situation, we will always have issues defensively, no matter how good our defenders are.}

1.) 07 Mar 2017 12:33:15
Thanks Ed1. Would you also try to sign a cb to play alongside Matip?

{Ed001's Note - yes, and a left back.}

2.) 07 Mar 2017 12:36:11
Whats you opinion of Donnarumma ed? Do You think he could be a decent keeper in the premiere league at his age?

{Ed001's Note - decent? He is already one of the best in the world.}

3.) 07 Mar 2017 13:20:43
Hi Ed001,

Where would you see Medel fitting in our system?

I know he has played CB in the PL before but it was at Cardiff. alongside Caulker. so it was woeful.

Would he replace Henderson in the middle of the park and push Hendo further forward? Or would Medel's stamina make him a good option further forward like Wiji is playing now?

He could always play CB again of course? haha

Cheers in advance.

{Ed001's Note - I would play him in midfield to provide some bite, but he is not going to be signing for us sadly.}

4.) 07 Mar 2017 13:30:24
Got to agree with ed01 about the 3 players mentioned above. Tierney is the one that would be achievable but everyone is interested he absolutely oozes class for someone so young, he would be a great fit for us he is left footed, got game intelligence in defence and attack and he seems to have a great attitude towards the game . I would hate to see him at Arsenal or United. Then there is the scenario Southampton pay 12m and they then price him at 25m 1 and a half years later . I feel we should get in with a bid for him asap see what it'll take for Celtic to sell.

{Ed007's Note - It would be extremely difficult and extremely expensive for any team to try and sign Tierney in the summer. Celtic don't need, or want, to sell him and Tierney himself is in no hurry to leave the Club he's supported all his life.
When he does eventually move on it will be when Tierney has decided he wants a move and there will be no shortage of suitors with the likes of Utd, City and Bayern Munich already showing interest.}

5.) 07 Mar 2017 13:35:21
Also, is there any reason Xavi Valero wouldn't come back to Liverpool?

As I understand it he is currently in China, so his wage may be an issue, but was there a falling out with the club, or has he just moved on?


{Ed001's Note - he left under a cloud.}

6.) 07 Mar 2017 13:58:54
Can't believe some people think Medal would get a game at Liverpool at the expense of whom? Wijnaldum and Medal are two different players. He might replace Henderson but this page would run riot if that was to happen.

7.) 07 Mar 2017 14:17:51
Would we have a realistic chance of signing donnaruma ed?

{Ed001's Note - not a chance sadly.}

8.) 07 Mar 2017 19:45:59
I'll take Hendo anyday even though I love Medel as a player.

9.) 07 Mar 2017 20:28:03
Medel would likely play behind Lallana and Hendo. Wijnaldum would then be back up. Medel has strength, can pass, has a decent touch and is a good strong tackler. Our midfield is crying out for a player like Medel. I would probably prefer Carvalho simply because of his age, LFC would get longer service. Shame neither would happen.

10.) 08 Mar 2017 05:04:00
I take it your Medel Love in is still going strong ED001.
Remember your posts from back in the day, how hurt you were when Cardiff signed him and then when he signed for Inter after Cardiff were relegated.

{Ed001's Note - he has been just about Inter's only decent player since going there. I still believe we missed a trick badly and still need a player like that.}

11.) 08 Mar 2017 09:02:39
Not a chance in heaven Klopp will drop Wiji from the starting eleven poolie unless ofcouse for rest or injuries.



27 Feb 2017 22:07:10
What the hell was Klopp thinking. Lucas vs Vardy. Why not give Gomez a chance. At least he has pace. I'm losing faith in our manager quickly.


1.) 27 Feb 2017 23:50:17
I agree a mistake - but Gomez wasn't the answer, we need an experience CB rather than throwing a kid into that match.

His worst one though was assuming he could use Can as a like for like replacement once Hendo got injured. Not a criticism of Can, he's just not the same player and we should have aimed for better control of midfield in a deeper 4-2-3-1 rather than playing a high line and leaving Lucas and Matip so exposed.

2.) 28 Feb 2017 01:00:16
I think the Gomez situation is a tricky one, 19 is very young to be playing at CB. On the other hand he is, physically, exactly what we need and in Matip he'd have a senior partner to mentor him. Can he perform worse than Lucas has? I'd love him to get a run out in the league.

3.) 28 Feb 2017 01:04:29
I think Klopp needs to learn fast that some of these players that he keeps trusting and making excuses for every other week are simply not good enough or clever enough to learn and become better players.

If Lucas, a player who can't get a game in midfield is picked in central defense ahead of Klavan, what does that tell us of what he thinks of Klavan? We have seen that Emre Can cannot play as the deepest midfielder, but yet again, Klopp picks him over Stewart and is happy to have him sitting on the bench twiddling his thumbs, and what does that tell us Klopp thinks about Stewart. Milner and Moreno are another set of examples.

If he doesn't trust these players, why keep them or bring them in at the first place? Either play them now to see if they can step up, or stick with players like Karius, Gomez, Origi who we know will be here beyond the summer. There is little point giving chances to the same players who keeps letting you down, especially when they will likely be sold in the summer.

4.) 28 Feb 2017 01:09:15
Gomez is not exactly brimming with pace is he. The problem is team selection, i other words Lucas marking Vardy. It is fully possible and at times highly effective to defend in a high line against pacy attackers even with slow defenders. But then you need two towers at CB claiming the more direct long balls. We all know Lucas ain't no tower. The management team screwed up badly this gameweek but what's even worse is they don't seem to have any solutions in the current squad. Remember, experience is just as important as physical presence in a defensive line.

5.) 28 Feb 2017 01:37:43
Gomez vs Vardy? That is suicide, my friend. I thought we played him quite well really overall. What happened on the first goal was just unfortunate as Wij lost the ball and most importantly, Albrighton played the pass first time hence, preventing the CB's from getting into position to mark Vardy or cut out the pass. As for Can, Klopp had no choice even tho, Can is not a good replacement for Hendo. As soon as Hendo went down, I knew we would struggle. He needs someone to help him come next season. Simple!

6.) 28 Feb 2017 13:01:18
Gomez is touted as the future Carra. If he isn't good why are persisting with him? This is ridiculous.



13 Feb 2017 08:40:04
Morning Eds and Reds,

Question for Ed 1 if he's about. You stated that Sturridge might leave this year. Is that because Klopp doesn't rate him or is there some other reason?

I feel a bit sorry for Sturridge but with all the injuries he's had he appears to have lost 1 or 2 yards of pace.



{Ed001's Note - because he is a fringe player that could raise funds to strengthen the team.}

1.) 13 Feb 2017 11:14:14
Liverpool cannot bring in another striker without offloading one. Origi looks a decent squad player to me and Ings would want an year of time to get back. That leaves the only possible departure Daniel Sturridge. CL is a different ball game and you would need a fantastic striker in your team.

2.) 13 Feb 2017 12:38:39
As you say 'Math'CL is a different ball game. CL teams don't play like Burnley or Westbrom so with Studge being a 'fantastic' striker (look at his international strike rate recently) he would thrive. Studge is not the problem, injuries aside its Klopps high press. The whole squad are regularly injured. Studge is class and the high press is not the only way!

{Ed001's Note - the press is not the cause of injuries. Plenty of teams play a high press without suffering injury problems.}

3.) 13 Feb 2017 12:50:59
Not as high a press as us Ed, check the stats!

{Ed001's Note - if that is what you want to tell yourself, you carry on. I am sure you can read any old crap into stats that you want, but simply it is not true that we play the highest press in the world. Oh and we suffer a lot less injuries than many teams that play no press at all, such as Arsenal. So please quit with this complete hokum.}

4.) 13 Feb 2017 13:20:35
Whose always injured?

Stirrings hasn't been injured this year. Only couinho isn't it?

5.) 13 Feb 2017 13:22:38
Napoli plays a high press infact they are faster than us.

6.) 13 Feb 2017 17:46:03
Bayer Leverkusen play a much higher press than we do under Roger Schmidt as well so this idea that it causes injuries is patently false. Suarez played the high press under BR and never missed a game, neither did Sterling, Hendo nor Couts? Who missed games that season through injury? You guessed it, Studge. Arsenal don't play a high press yet they have the WORST injury record in the PL for years now. Your stats don't tell you that, does it? Bottom line is if you are not physically fit and in tip top shape all year round, you will keep getting knocks and niggles and injuries. Why do you think Suarez and CR& are iron men? Cos they train so hard that their bodies can take the beating the amount of games they play, take on their bodies.

{Ed001's Note - he had one ankle injury! Why don't you stop knocking Sturridge and try supporting him? His injury problems are not caused by lack of fitness.}

7.) 14 Feb 2017 00:23:36
Ed, I know he had an ankle injury that time and in hindsight, I should not have mentioned that part of it as it wasn't his fault. I do support him BUT I just feel his time is gone and we may need to move on from him this summer, regardless of his talent.



31 Dec 2016 22:27:39
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.}

Ed, do you think there is a chance he could stay or do you think Klopp is fed up of how little he is available?


{Ed001's Note - there is every chance he could stay, it is just more likely he leaves due to his injury problems. Klopp would prefer someone more reliable but that is all it is.}

50mil for Sakho and Sturridge? You must be having a laugh. One of the Eds has already said that teams will be looking to get a loan-to-buy for Sturridge and we'll be lucky to get back what we paid for Sakho. Add to that the £5m we might get for Migs, £2m for Lucas (apparently) and maybe £10m for Markovic were not even close to £50m let alone £100.
The only way we get to triple figures is if we lose Coutinho and that's the worst thing that could happen.

Thanks Ed1. Do you mean Obiang the West Ham player? Is he that good?

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Henderson long term.


{Ed001's Note - yes and he is a different type of player from what we have. Only way to find out if he is good enough is if we sign him. Personally I have liked what I have seen, and West Ham hit their bad patch the moment he got injured.}
