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.



22 Sep 2017 10:25:31
Are we genuinely interested in Dayot Upamecano Eds or is this more papertalk? It's almost hilarious if we are interested as the papers have an 18 year old who is worth between £7.5m and £12m max and us having to pay €100m.


{Ed002's Note - There may well be interest from Liverpool in Dayot Upamecano - he is attracting the interest of Barcelona and Manchester United as well.}

1.) 22 Sep 2017 14:32:33
Get out is he 18! I thought he was about 25. Agree he isn't worth €100m but if he is 18 he is seriously talented.

{Ed007's Note - He turns 19 next month.}

2.) 22 Sep 2017 19:16:42
Is he a CB ed?

{Ed002's Note - yes.}

3.) 22 Sep 2017 19:51:31
Anyone seen him play. ?

4.) 22 Sep 2017 20:12:56
Looks like a good prospect.

Built like an out-house and good in the air.

5.) 22 Sep 2017 21:08:40
Is Leipzig the new So'ton? Just asking.

6.) 22 Sep 2017 22:42:09
What position does he play? I have never heard of him. He better be a beastly centre back 😂.

7.) 23 Sep 2017 11:59:23
I've only seen him once when i watched Leipzig earlier this season. I have to be honest i was watching Keita, but from what i remember of Upamecano he was a monster. I had no idea he was still a teenager so just assumed he was a decent centre back. Now i know he is barely out of school i want to watch him again, more closely to get a better idea.

All i can say is he looked like a seasoned pro, and was physically dominant. I wouldn't like to say any more after one game where i wasn't paying much attention to him.

8.) 25 Sep 2017 04:20:26
He has some pretty impressive ball skills - more like a midfielder than a CB and gets up the pitch quickly.
He is defensively strong and good in the air as well as tackling.
Is he worth 100m? Well no, I don't think any defender is - but at 19 years old he has longevity on his side and if VVD is 70m pounds then 100m euros ain't that bad!
Mind you we won't get 100m for all 3 current CB's so its a $$$ outlay.

9.) 25 Sep 2017 19:14:04
I think we should avoid signing players with difficult names. Too problematic for fans.

10.) 25 Sep 2017 22:26:05
I try to pronounce it with an Italian accent.

11.) 26 Sep 2017 22:35:35
I heard he was a Upandcomingo CB with a lot of promise.



03 Sep 2017 19:51:07
Fenerbahce have made an offer for Lazar Markovic on a one-year loan according to the Turkish media reports.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are still pushing to sell. Maybe they will bite the bullet over this one.}

1.) 03 Sep 2017 20:03:05
With no takers on a permanent move I think they'll have to bite the bullet on this one Ed002 mate.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

2.) 03 Sep 2017 20:05:45
Is the transfer window still open for Turkish clubs?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - until the 8th I think.}

3.) 03 Sep 2017 22:34:08
Agree with Ed on this one. Just get what we can. I wish he would have worked out here but wish him all of the best.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 22:45:53
I would personally like to see him get another chance. I don't think he did that bad for us when he did play. I know he didn't do so well on loan, but sometimes being surrounded by better players can bring the best out of someone. Wijnaldum didn't exactly shine at Newcastle did he.

5.) 03 Sep 2017 23:09:50
Winjaldum did shine at Newcastle, he was there best player.

6.) 03 Sep 2017 23:32:04
Maybe a bad example Lucas, but you get my point.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 01:45:50
I liked him when he first started. Showed glimpses of his potential, but Markovic looks like he isn't enjoying his footy with us. Id let him go so he can try to get his career back on track with someone else.

8.) 04 Sep 2017 08:27:26
I agree with Phil. Besides getting the impression that he's not enjoying his time with us, I also get the feeling that he is not driven enough to fight for a place in our team. I watched him closely during our preseason games and he just didn't put in a shift - the one which would show his intention of pushing for a place in the team. Also, from what little I have seen of him, he seems to lack the work ethic that Klopp expects from his first team players, especially the 11 that are on the field. The lad deserves a chance to play elsewhere and in my opinion it would suit everyone if he moves on permanently.

9.) 04 Sep 2017 12:00:27
Markovic was an expensive mistake and we should just bite the bullet and move on. Kent, Ojo, Woodburn, Wilson etc are all better than him.

10.) 04 Sep 2017 12:40:42
he was a victim of Rodgers's wild spending spree, best for him to move on.

11.) 04 Sep 2017 15:42:11
I think we should bite the bullet.

12.) 04 Sep 2017 16:44:55
Lots of cowboys in today, I think we should just sell him.

13.) 04 Sep 2017 16:40:46
Marko played one decent game against Sunderland, and that was only for the first half!

14.) 04 Sep 2017 17:10:20
My Geordie mates reckon they're well rid of gini. I'd say he's been pretty good for us tbf but they all slate him for going missing or not putting effort in.

15.) 04 Sep 2017 18:16:48
LucasLeiva-Wini wasn't Newcastles best player, he was dropped to the bench a fair bit towards the end of the season.

16.) 04 Sep 2017 18:36:01
Wijnaldum reminds me of when jonny barnes played in midfield they have similar technique strong on the ball skilful eye for a pass, he just needs a goal away from home, all in all he's been great for us he had more assists than coutihno last season.

17.) 05 Sep 2017 14:08:52
Markovic had potential but was mishandled IMO and it's set back his career. Admittedly he perhaps also could have picked himself up and tried again, but it's clear now he isn't inspired to play his best for us and needs a move. Hope he gets it and goes on to a good career.

18.) 05 Sep 2017 16:44:32
Wijnaldum is one of my favorite players in our side. Keita's signing could push him down the pecking order a bit but he's been well worth his salary and what it cost to sign him. He definitely was Newcastle's best player and any Geordie fan giving him a hard time was just aggrieved that they went down for a season unexpectedly.

19.) 05 Sep 2017 19:17:10
I'm with the biting of said bullet.

20.) 06 Sep 2017 07:40:41
U got to wonder why in the hell we wasted 20 mil on him?!

21.) 06 Sep 2017 13:32:14
He was supposed to be Brenda's new dentist and part time hair stylist I read in a highly reputable Spanish rag called Sport. :)

22.) 06 Sep 2017 17:27:27
I used to be critical of gini until I seen his game statistics. Brilliant. Out of ox, Hendo and himself, he come out tops.

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


{Ed002's Note - Thanks - but I am about to depart for a weekend of degeneracy and libertinism with my wives and some old chums in London. Tuesday looks a good time to prod me if you can.}

Ed002, you also asked me to remind you that can of tuna you've been saving is expiring today.

I know you have that hot date in London but i honestly can't see it lasting till Tuesday.

5.) 23 Aug 2017 00:10:54
R. I. P Rhys. Deepest sympathies to the Jones family and much love from (I hope) all Liverpool and Everton fans on such a tragic anniversary.



13 Jul 2017 15:36:36
Salah now eligible to play for LFC.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 20:29:03
Brilliant, hoping to see him get some time on tomorrow.



13 Jul 2017 09:38:50
Hi Ed001, is it true that we are in advanced talks for Ed Too. I've heard that Klopp likes his versatility but his agent doesn't think that LFC can match his image rights demands?




06 Feb 2017 13:17:54
I just wanted to say to Man United fans that might find themselves on our pages. although we hate one another on the pitch. today, of all days, we share in your grief that was the horrific Munich air disaster of 1958 when so many were lost. In memory of those lost Busby Babes you do not walk alone.


{Ed001's Note - well said.}

1.) 06 Feb 2017 13:50:28

Much respect Reynard. We share a hatred on the field, but we share tragedy off it also.

7.) 06 Feb 2017 21:45:51
the busby babes and the 96 at hillsborough will never be forgotten, both disasters will never be out of the thoughts of true football fans, god rest their souls.

The story comes from a fluff piece that originated from Messi quoted in Diario Gol a couple of weeks back. where he allegedly suggested JM might come back to LFC in a surprise move.

Hi Ed001 mate. tell me to shut up if you wish, but I feel you're tasking on far too many articles for us. perhaps if we could submit ideas and then have a vote on the best 3 for you to write then that would be fantastic in any single month. If you then want to do any on top of that that's cool. Just an idea mate because I don't see an end to the ceaseless requests here.


{Ed001's Note - that's not a bad idea, but most of them are for long running series of articles so not so much of an issue.}

Go on Ed001 mate, throw supersub in there as well. effectively that term was invented for him and in many ways he embodies what a lot of players fail to do these days. As far as I know he never threw his "toys out the pram". he simply got on with making the best of his situation and who can forget his stunning effort against St Etienne in 77. In fact Klopp and our current players might learn a lot by watching that game. plus, how good was Kevin Keegan. we go on about PC but KK was extraordinary.


{Ed001's Note - great shout mate.}
