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!

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.}

17 Dec 2016 18:04:17

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.

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.}

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.

Where to next Ed1?


{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) .
