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
As if anyone had any doubt anyway after this summer lol.

3.) 26 Sep 2017 13:52:14
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.

Congratulations Sir Kenny! Long overdue.


1.) 09 Jun 2018 01:25:54
Yeah yeah yeah, Sir Kenny. He will always be King Kenny.



08 Jun 2018 21:39:21
So our Released list is:
Emre Can, Toni Correia Gomes, Yan Dhanda, Andrew Firth, Jon Flanagan, Paulo Manuel Neves Alves, Mich'El Parker and Michael Jordan Williams.

And George Johnston and Conor Masterson have had new contract offers.


1.) 08 Jun 2018 22:45:59
Little shocked at Williams, good luck to them.



04 Jun 2018 12:26:55
Hi Ed002. On another thread you commented that "The last thing clubs want is players to see out their contracts. " I just wondered, do you see the current model in football clubs as a sustainable model? Do clubs even discuss the possibilities of wage ceilings or the like? I'll understand if you're too busy to answer or it's not appropriate on the Liverpool page, I thought I'd ask nevertheless.


{Ed002's Note - Wages caps have been proposed and discussed in the past but there is such an imbalance between even different European nations that you could simply not apply one that would work. One of the purposes of FFP was to try and stop wages running away from what clubs can afford and largely that has worked - two English sides were pulled up over ity in January and provided resolutions to fix it.}



06 May 2018 19:36:55
It's alleged that we have reportedly reached an agreement with Lyon over a deal to sign Nabil Fekir this summer.

"According to claims from French news outlet RMC Sport, as cited by GFFN, the Reds have agreed to pay a huge sum worth €70m to secure Fekir following an impressive season in Ligue 1."

Any truth Eds?


1.) 06 May 2018 19:57:25
We’re looking to complete a deal by the final. Nothing agreed yet. Talks taking place.

2.) 06 May 2018 21:03:14
If Klopp wants him then I'm game.



01 May 2018 22:20:48
Update on Buvac: A Serbian reporter is indicating that Buvac's absence is related to his father's illness. If this is true then I'm sure all LFC fans would join in wishing his family the best at this difficult time #YNWA.


{Ed0333's Note - One thing I’ve learnt about my time in the media is that spin and propaganda are not far behind a controversial story. If the story of illness is true then I think I say on behalf of all the Liverpool family may Buvac senior recuperate and get back to health in a speedy fashion.

1.) 01 May 2018 22:29:58
Same with you, Ed. 'Hope his father is fine if indeed that is the case. We shall see.

2.) 02 May 2018 05:18:20
definitely more believable than him replacing Wenger XD.

{Ed001's Note - there is a difference between being the cause of an absence and being the reason for the timing of the absence.}

3.) 02 May 2018 09:26:24
Dunno what you're getting at Ed, the Arsenal situation coinciding with Buvac's absence is purely coincidental which is why the media trying to push the "Buvac to Arsenal" possibility is so ridiculous - the vast majority of people believe the reason he has left is for personal reasons, as the club has officially stated, i wasnt contesting that.

{Ed001's Note - I never said it was related to what you said did I?}

4.) 02 May 2018 09:37:11
Seems hard to believe that someone who has been at Klopp's side for so long would walk out before Liverpool's biggest game in 10 years (counting the losing final vs AC Milan) .

If there has been a bust up and he has gone, then goodbye and all the best. No grudges.

If, based on the above, he has a personal issue so difficult he has to attend to it at this point then he deserves the love and support of the entire Liverpool community. No inside knowledge, but i've been there. Nothing prepares you for it.


5.) 02 May 2018 09:54:13
Nobody is talking about timing except you, his fathers health rapidly declining would explain the urgency of him leaving, yes, but so could any other circumstance if you look at it in a particular way

It was a passing joke, if you have a point then the reason im on this site is because i value the opinions of everyone here so by all means make it.

{Ed001's Note - oh I give up. If you are going to be a bell end because you have not read all the other posts you can go jump. What on earth are you getting so snotty about? You do not know what has been discussed so do not jump down my throat because of your ignorance that everyone has been whining about the timing of Buvac's leaving. And people wonder why editors get annoyed when we get responses like yours even after we point out their crap joke was nothing to do with our comment.

Maybe Ed002 has the right idea, why bother to give out info or answer questions?}

6.) 02 May 2018 10:38:11
B. Jesus. Chill out.

Ed001 (I think) is trying to say that there was clearly a problem creeping in with Klopp and Buvacs working relationship which has been growing worse over time.

But if Buvacs dad were to have a serious illness, the timing of this unfortunate situation. Coinciding with the detoriation of the relationship with Klopp may have been what pushed Buvac to choose to leave the squad at this crucial time of the season.

7.) 02 May 2018 10:59:11
I agree with what you say Ed001 mate but I've spoken to a friend informally who reckons (and it is merely guess work) that the situation with Buvac's father has interfered with his excellent work at LFC and therefore he was told to take leave until the health situation is sorted. Klopp and Buvac do always bicker so there is an equal chance it all went too far and someone has cleverly separated the two by using the situation. I guess I'd just like to believe we're not losing him, at least not in this manner.

8.) 02 May 2018 14:39:29
So he was advised to take some time off before the CL semi 2nd leg and not to come back if we get to the final?

It doesn’t feel right to me, it feels like gardening leave.

He has asked for clarification from Klopp before making a final decision. someone from Fenerbahce said this was the situation, but it seems to have an amount of truth in it given that Ed001 has pretty much confirmed he is doing the same. I expect he will go although I think he's fantastic and would love him to stay. And with Shaqiri almost completed (if we believe some pretty reliable sources) surely that is Lallana left looking to pursue a career elsewhere. I would like to point out to some detractors (me included) that Shaqiri's bad attitude is directly related to his time at Stoke. where Arnautovic allegedly had a bad attitude as well but all of a sudden West Ham say they want in excess of £60m for him. The point is that it is possible to be a good player in a bad circumstance (we've been that for many a signed prospect) - If he comes I hope he'll prove us all wrong. I doubt it but I hope.

Why would we terminate his contract and then have to pay off his wages for that year?

Comments from a couple of well known journalists with good links to us indicate that Lyon and Fekir are more than willing to pursue a deal but that LFC have shown no inclination of resurrecting the deal at all. There is no clear indication of what has actually occurred to scupper the deal but what is clear is that we are the ones that pulled out much to the annoyance of Lyon and Fekir.

The fixtures went up on the BBC site 3 hours ago for all teams. but I like the way how Tottenham and Chelsea away in September followed by Man City at home is part of a 'fair few weeks'. we haven't even got the UCL fixtures yet, which'll add to the melee. I personally think we've got a good November and December. Let's hope all the lads come back fit and raring to go.

I rather suspect Grujic will be leaving along with perhaps Lallana and a few more. I hope Harry Wilson kicks on this coming season and perhaps as an outside bet that Origi does a great job in the coming season if he remains. On top of this I think some of our youngsters might do well away on loan.

I hope there is no substance to Yaya's comment and the timing or it does reek of bitterness. I suspect Yaya made the comment hoping other African players would support the sentiment but the absence of any other voice thus far is telling.
As for Sane not being in the German team, I am baffled, but maybe Joachim Low understands that the best individuals do not always make the best team. He reckons he's been edged by Brandt because of defensive dilligence. who knows, but it'll mean that Sane is going to have a stonking year coming up and that is worrying to me as an LFC fan. and Germany will be their usual difficult (probable) finalists which is a problem for me as an England fan.
