Out of the frying pan and into the fire for Zeljko Buvac. He'll be confirmed as Fenerbahce manager later today.


1.) 13 Jun 2018 07:33:13
Are they in the CL next season? Bet in our group if they are.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 08:12:29
Keep his seat warm at Anfield then Kloppo 😄.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 08:21:16
Good luck to him.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 20:35:09
Is anybody holding their breath on this?



06 Jun 2018 09:10:50
Hi Eds, apparently we had scouts at the Turkey v Russia game watching the Turkish defender Çağlar Söyüncü (recently 22 years old) central defender playing for SC Freiberg.
He is statistically a good playmaker and is strong in the air with numerous of his coaches stating he has great timing and leadership qualities. Is he a genuine target for this summer?


{Ed002's Note - Caglar Soyuncu has been of a great deal of interest to Arsenal who have spoken with Freiberg about him. Whether they would spring for him having already effectively agreed to add Sokratis Papastathopoulos or not is a different matter. I am not aware of Liverpool interest in Soyuncu and he does play on the left side of defence in the same preferred position as van Dijk and I would have thought if Liverpool had decided to also look for a CB then one who prefers the right would be a better option. REgardless, he is one of a few CBs that are coming through that are envisaged to have a very good future.}

1.) 06 Jun 2018 10:34:16
Hello Ed02, Do you think the club would look to add a CB now that we have signed Fabinho who could also cover at RB, If yes then who do you think would be out of the door from defenders? Matip or Klavan?

{Ed002's Note - You need to ask all of your questions of Macca from now on - not me.}

2.) 06 Jun 2018 10:56:45
Oh no Ed 😔😔. I did not mean anything such in the previous post mate! My only curiosity was about the players for that perticular position and nothing more.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 12:37:41
Thanks Ed002 mate. I thought he might be thought of as a replacement for Klavan. He most certainly does look like one for the future. That said, I'd like another one of your past suggestions in his place, Dayotchanculle Oswald Upamecano.

4.) 06 Jun 2018 13:51:42
If Liverpool sign a CB it would definitely be on the left. Klavan is a stop gap while Matip and Lovren are liked by Klopp for the right. Almost all of Lovren's errors in his Liverpool career are when he plays on the left. The right is sorted, the left isn't.

{Ed002's Note - You seem to have forgotten van Dijk.}

5.) 07 Jun 2018 08:18:04
hahaha, thanks christos, that made me smile, kalimera! Did you write that in 2017? Don't worry, it just needs a little editing. "If Liverpool sign a CB it would definitely be a surprise. Klavan and Gomez are backup while Van Dijk and Lovren are liked by Klopp as starters. Almost all of Matip's errors in his Liverpool career are when he plays. Centre back is sorted, the goalkeeper isn't. "

6.) 07 Jun 2018 16:30:33
Sorry, I didn't realise vvd will be expected to play 60 games and never be injured next season. The team needs more than 1 left sided CB. I thought that much was obvious.



30 Nov 2017 14:41:45
Hi Eds 001 and 002.there are substantial rumours that Barcelona and LFC have finalised payment details for Coutinho. with a deferred payment structure. Any truth? I asked because there seems to have been a rush to try and finish things by today for some reason.

Also Ed002 mate, you asked me to remind you about a possible update from you on our developing of young players. Many thanks you guys.


{Ed002's Note - I explained why Barcelona wanted matters addressed by today - it would have been disruptive to the process otherwise and after this week they would have started looking at options as well as Coutinho. My understanding is that there are details to be worked out and nothing has yet been finalised. You will need to remind me mid next week about the kiddies.}

1.) 30 Nov 2017 14:53:22
Thanks for the swift reply mate. I'll get that reminder to you next week.

{Ed002's Note - Right on.}

2.) 30 Nov 2017 15:50:24
Ed the fact that Couts was not in the team yesterday mate, would you say Klopp is aware that he is close to leaving so didn't want him playing or purely tactical?

{Ed002's Note - He is a Liverpool player - I would think he was being rested. You need to stop listening to all of these weird little coices in your head.}



18 Nov 2017 11:39:21
Apparently we'll be without Matip today. Lovren will partner Klavan (only repeating what some press are saying) . I hope the lad puts in a storming performance for his and our sakes.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 14:56:58
Definitely out. Going to be a difficult afternoon with the Chuckle brothers in the middle.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 15:20:59
I think the chucklebrothers would be more comfortable passing to each other :D.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 16:55:30
I think both of them had a good game.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 18:36:38
A good defensive performance by the boys today but SFC made it fairly easy for us in many respects. that said, I thought Lovren did well in the unusual position on the right of centre back. he clearly focused more rather than getting at himself about potential mistakes. Well done to the lad! Was also really nice to hear the fans giving him great support.

5.) 19 Nov 2017 07:43:29
I do question Klavan defending abilities but he did look very comfortable on the ball and generally passed it about quite well. Lovren's life seems to be like a soap opera at the moment, his wife, robberies or attempted robbery on his home etc are maybe reasons why he is not 100% on the pitch however a player who defends so well for Croatia and Southampton before joining us is a real mystery why he is so prone to errors in a red shirt. Great Boss result from the lads today well done! On a side note I was a fan of the Saints goalie before today, for a big lad he had an absolute shocker.

6.) 19 Nov 2017 12:25:15
It's because we play a higher line and he needs to concentrate on his positioning a lot more with us because there'll be too much space for him to make up if he's caught out Carlos. It's not really a mystery.

He was good against Southampton, though. I know they didn't attack all that much, but he dealt with the few attacks they did put together well. He's often been guilty of switching off and letting the opposition in when he has nothing to do for long periods of a game, but there was none of that yesterday.

7.) 20 Nov 2017 09:20:03
Lovren’s always looked more comfortable when on the right IMO - and Hendo did a good job of sitting a bit deeper and protecting the back 4. I know our CBs aren’t the best around but they are far better than we give them credit for if we play a system that gives them some cover.

8.) 20 Nov 2017 11:25:22
Since when did the opposition need to put pressure on our back line for it to be dreadful and give them chances? They did well today. And frankly, people can question Klavan as much as they like - he's not perfect but since he's come in we've conceeded almost nothing and looked much better across the whole back line. Midfield protection doing it's job has also helped.



26 Sep 2017 12:50:42
Hi Eds, has there actually been a meeting as Spanish publication Sport claims between Coutinho's agents and Fenway Sports Group in Boston with representatives of to make it clear that the Brazilian ace still wants a move to the Nou Camp?


{Ed002's Note - it was not exactly like that but it is true that it has been made absolutely clear to the owners (the club already knows) that Coutinho wants to leave.}

1.) 26 Sep 2017 13:31:52
As if anyone had any doubt anyway after this summer lol.

2.) 26 Sep 2017 13:31:52

Coutinho wanrs to leave? Since when?

4.) 26 Sep 2017 15:40:39
Ed is it possible he might leave in January? Also I thought Barcelona said in the summer it was now or never?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timings of transfer nor any questions which include "is it possible". Barcelona have other options they are considering as well.}

5.) 26 Sep 2017 16:37:41
What we panicking for?

It was this year or never so I was told. We wouldn't sell on a 5 year deal for 100 mil, why would we take less.

Rather have 4 years outta the boy.

6.) 26 Sep 2017 19:13:38
As it stands at the moment Liverpool have a good chance of reaching the following stage. Barcelona may do so as well but would not be able to use Coutinho. It makes no sense him leaving in January but perhaps his desire to join Barcelona over-rides anything else.

01 Oct 2018 12:46:11
I've seen a few posts worried that some on here are being extremely negative and knocking our players. I don't think people are generally knocking our players. On the most part I think many of the fans on here have been fairly decent and just expressed some concerns BUT almost all of them have said how wonderful our results are given we haven't been "firing on all cylinders" so far. That's not a negative point but extremely positive in my opinion.

The good points for all of us to remember:
1] The mark of potential champions is not the occasional fantastic results but getting the points on the board even when playing badly (or poorer than expected) . This sums us up at the moment.
2] Weak areas have been improved in the transfer windows. I think most would agree that our defence and goalkeeping is stronger and more settled. I can personally say I haven't felt so confident in our backline since the original SAS pairing.
3] Studge has been like a new signing since his loan. He looks like he's improved his strength and will be a major impacting substitute this year. It also means we worry less about the impact of injury on our frontline.
4] Shaqiri has made me eat humble pie! I'm surprised at his work ethic and am generally overjoyed with his impact on our overall team depth.
5] Our team spirit seems excellent. For those doubting it just take another look at what happened after Studge equalised against Chelsea. take a look at the made embrace and celebration between Klopp and Mignolet. Our strength and resolve with this team spirit could be a determining factor in the title race. Four squads have a clear, good team atmosphere (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City) and to see the effect. one only need look at the very obvious example of Manchester United to see problems of a negative team spirit at the moment.

If we do start firing on all cylinders then the EPL and UCL better watch out. YNWA.


1.) 01 Oct 2018 13:01:03
Really good post Reynard. All points are valid, but particularly #1 and #5. In years past we would have potentially lost he Chelsea match, probably dropped points in one or two other matches this season. The fact that we are finding ways to win matches when not at our best is an extremely positive sign. On #5, it's been a while since I've seen a Liverpool team look as close as they do now. They all seem to genuinely like and support one another. I don't see the factions or silos that there have been in the past or what you currently see at other clubs namely Man U. I think the club has done a really good job of buying players to fit within the team and everyone is buying in to the system. It's really fantastic to watch.

2.) 01 Oct 2018 13:47:06
Excellent post mate, couldn't agree more!

3.) 01 Oct 2018 15:20:37
Spot on, fantastic post. Loving the season so far, think the fans should try to enjoy it a little more as well.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 15:23:56
Midfield is not improved IMO! Don’t shoot me down but we are still playing last years midfield! No goals from midfield!

5.) 01 Oct 2018 15:26:46
Great post mate.

6.) 01 Oct 2018 18:00:44
Good post man. I said something yesterday about salah and the pressure of being pl player of the year. It was a concern, not me knocking mo. I also said I think he will click soon. And like you say, we are stilling getting the points. And the front three/ four are all scoring.

Sturridge has to be considered for a start now. He has to be. We have a lot of games. Now I'm over the pain of getting beat by Chelsea, I'm now genuinely pleased that we are out of the league Cup. Focus on the big 2.

{Ed025's Note - in my honest opinion MM you should never be pleased to lose in any competition, the league cup is a legitimate competition and a great chance to give youngsters and fringe players a platform to show how good they are and how they are progressing mate..

7.) 01 Oct 2018 19:41:34
Spot on, OP. Brilliant post. MM, Studge "has" to start. In place of who, exactly? Bobby when fit? Good luck with that, mate. IMO, Studge has realized that he woon't be the frequent starter and has accepted it cos at 29, he is nearing the end of his career. That much is a fact. He does not play the CF position the same way Bobbie plays it and his wonder strikes of late, will NOT change any of that.

What he has done and credit to him, is that he has realized that he is better being here than toiling somewhere else and remember, he loves the Klopp, the manager and his team mates. So what did he do? In the summer, he got fitter, stronger, and sharper and the preseason showed that, to the point of Klopp saying that Studger is in the best shape since he arrived at the club. This is why he is performing (even tho, he can do better) right now cos he is fitter and when you are fitter, you are stronger mentally and then you can do THAT! Just my take, bro.

8.) 01 Oct 2018 19:44:40
Well said ED25.

We should never ever paly for a loss or play a weakened team.

I was so annoyed we are out of that cup, 7 matches in to the season and 2 games in that week and we can not play our strongest team because they need to be rested and when they were rested, some that came back went missing at times.

We actually lost momentum which is what people do not realise.

Chelsea used the cup game to be more mentally assured of a result for the league game on Saturday.

{Ed025's Note - momentum is very important in any sport RK, that winning mentality is what makes champions stand out from the also rans, im not saying liverpool did not try or were not indeed the better side at anfield, but i do have a problem when supporters are happy that their team got knocked out mate..

9.) 01 Oct 2018 20:57:23
To be fair Ed25.several fringe players were given opportunity in that game and were not really good enough. Not happy we went out though. any silverware is better than none.

{Ed025's Note - getting beaten happens RaL to every team, my only issue is how a supporter can be happy about it mate..

10.) 01 Oct 2018 21:08:23
Spot on, Ed. Anyone saying "Oh, just as well. The EFL Cup is a Mickey Mouse Cup anyway" is lying to him/ her/ themselves, end of story. I don't like losing even a friendly so why would I accept losing a Cup game at home vs the chelsea? Now, I will say that us losing the Cup game did not dampen our momentum or lour determination to make up for it on Sat and our performance showed that tho, we could have won, They could have won as well and since neither team did not deserve to lose, a draw is a fair result. And mind you, getting a 10 points out of 12 from Chelsea, Palace, Leicester and Spurs (all away from home) is NOTHING to sneeze at. The momentum is there and we got to keep it going.

{Ed025's Note - momentum is still with you brover, as i said the only beef i had was a supporter being happy with the team going out of a competition mate..

Perfect Reynard. Thanks for doing that.

Hi, A question if I might (primarily aimed at Eds 001 and 002). The last twenty years of football has seen the emergence of the "super agent" and a noticeable shift in power from clubs to the players representatives, and we now regularly see these power brokers using the media to manufacture moves away from and to clubs with ridiculous financial gain accruing to them. For example, Mino Raiola earned £41.39m from Pogba's moved back to Man Utd (according to "Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football") and is now seeking a further move to Barcelona for the same player. We, at LFC, have paid ridiculous money to agents in recent years, as have many clubs in Europe. Ed002 has regularly said you cannot keep an unhappy player at a club but he's also constantly pounded clubs for the amount of payments they make to agents. has the time come for the rules to be changed? Can they be changed? Will this movement eventually force the introduction of a European Super League?


{Ed002's Note - You are referring to the most extreme of cases, but nothing is likely to change in the short term. A bigger issue right now is seen to be the disparity in income between different countries.}

I would think the most likely scenario is that he'll stay at Arsenal. I just can't envisage him moving away irrespective of the rumours and stories.

Damn. lol. I was hoping we could uncover a Watford div, lol.

By the way, you're right Ed001 mate about picking out one particular incident. I was actually at Sunday football on Hackney Marshes (a long time ago) when a player left a match during the game and went and got a gun from his car! I remember he got a lifetime ban and a custodial sentence for the possession of firearms. apparently it was not loaded but I can tell you all our pants went brown that day.


{Ed001's Note - it happens a lot, but there are literally tens of thousands of games taking place so it is bound to happen somewhere.}

13 Nov 2018 10:42:31
Given the area and that the stopp was in South Mimms it could be a Watford player as their training ground is close ;)


{Ed001's Note - no the police did say it was not a Premier League player.}

Great read as usual Ed001 mate. I do think it's worth mentioning the disgusting attack on an Irish referee in an amateur game. It was reported Daniel Sweeney (the referee in question) is recovering in hospital from a broken jaw and other serious injuries after an "appalling" attack by players following a match. He was assaulted after an amateur game in the Republic of Ireland's Combined Counties League by (allegedly) three Mullingar Town players and a fan - which followed the club's match at Horseleap. I found this very disturbing.


{Ed001's Note - it is amateur football, if I was reporting everything happening in that there would be no time to breathe mate. I have seen myself players get shot at, have dogs set on them, refs headbutted, spectators chase the ref off, etc etc. I do agree it was horrible, but you can't pick out one instance to get outraged about and ignore a billion others.}

I'm pretty sure you've got to go on the 24 point total Ed001 mate because they added the violation points to his existing points. so it'll be a team with under 24 points. but his girlfriend has a nice £40k car. what a div!


{Ed001's Note - his girlfriend was also in trouble mate, but you make a good point, I forgot that it would include the 6 he already had. I was reading it as he had just been handed more points than his team, but you are right, it says he now has more points than his team.}
