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

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.

Perfect Reynard. Thanks for doing that.



08 Aug 2018 09:19:03
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.}



09 Jun 2018 00:30:57
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.}

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 also believe Rabiot was their best player last night Ed001 mate. He cut out a handful of our attacks at vital moments and seemed more composed than most of their players. The "big miss" for them was Verratti as he provides a good link between the back and the lazy sod upfront. Where I differ from you Ed001 mate is the choice of Tuchel as manager for PSG. I think he's a good "fit" for the owners given that the higher profile managers would not put up with the antics of some of the players and their attitudes both on and off the field. The owners have mistakenly copied the Real Madrid model and will absolutely regret it eventually when they are stuck with ego-driven players who they cannot get rid of. Of all their players I would only take Rabiot and Mbappe.


{Ed002's Note - Thomas Tuchel was way down the list for PSG and he knows it. It never makes for a long-term relationship.}

lol, I think you're right Ed001 mate!


{Ed001's Note - maybe that's what should be done to him next time he is on the ground play acting? Drag him up and off the pitch. He would be less inclined to do it again due to the embarrassment it would cause.}

I agree Juicer mate that Spurs could not have been allowed to buy the stadium but Daniel Levy foresaw the problems with the financial model that was in front of the LLDC and Newham. Equal exception to Leyton Orient moving there existed (Hearn was not popular in the local community) but these were not the only options. there were at least four more options (2 of which were VERY good from a legacy perspective) . the LLDC and Newham said that the WHU model was the best for legacy but this was simply not true. On top of this, every London household paid more than £600 towards the building of the stadium and the legacy but they're left paying for the mistakes of a bunch of invisible business cronies ever since the building was effectively given gratis to West Ham.

Great review again Ed001 mate. Neymar has 8 expressions. I'm not sure it'll get through but I uploaded them on the sightings page ;)
