Perisic now has a silly enough haircut! The chances of us now signing him have just increased! Right ed?


{Ed002's Note - You would think so but in this case I suspect not.

Enquiries about the availability of Inter's winger Ivan Perisic have been made by Dortmund and Chelsea. Inter don't want to sell but they need to meet the FFP requirements and will for the right price have to let him leave. Arsenal are known to have spoken with his representatives but have yet to approach Inter. Chelsea's interest remains but Dortmund will likely shift their interest to another. Performances at an international level have given a certain amount of amunition to his representative to get entry to talk to a number of the "elite" European sides to see what interest they may have. As for those asking about the interest of Liverpool, Perisic was a player, like Mkhitaryan, who saw their game stiffled by Klopp's rather naive kopflose huhn style of training and play - and he chose to leave Dortmund because of that. It seems unlikely that he would wish to move back in to such a situation.}

"Arsenal are known to have talked to his representatives" tapping up Eds 002, I thought that was our job😃.

{Ed002's Note - That is not tapping up. What Liverpool have done in the past aand again recently is tapping up.}

2.) 25 Jun 2016 19:41:23
And again recently? Is that zielinski or someone else ed?

{Ed002's Note - Goetze and Zielinski - how many more recent examples do you need.}

3.) 25 Jun 2016 20:15:51
sorry Edd not trying to sound rude or anything but why is that not consider tapping? is it because it's with his representatives instead of the player directly?

{Ed002's Note - It is the norm for clubs to talk with agents and other representatives of players every day.}

4.) 26 Jun 2016 04:24:22
It wasn't naive. It won them two straight bundesligas.

5.) 25 Jun 2016 23:44:41
Don't really post on here, I just read the site about ten times a day as I know I get reliable information on here.

What I just read above just got my blood boiling though, dude seriously, what's your issue? If you don't believe what Ed has to say, sod off somewhere else like Twitter or something and please, don't ruin this site for fans like me.

As to the Ed's, thank youyou, I sincerely say that from the heart, you guys are amazing and the work you put in is outstanding!

6.) 26 Jun 2016 07:39:30
Sorry ed002 I didn't mean to cause offence I just wondered if anyone else had been tapped up! What could be consequences for the club could they face disciplinary action?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has a well documented history of making illegal approaches, and if charges were made by UEFA Liverpool's season of record breaking charges being made against the club and fans would see very significant punishments made if there were a complaint made.}

7.) 26 Jun 2016 00:05:19
Ed002 I presume you're talking about the farce that was the attempt to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham, when FSG refused to pay the £5m asking price?



04 May 2015 20:57:48
I remember being mentioned that Balanta was recommended. If we sell some of our center backs does anyone see us going for him, even though he is not yet fully ready?


{Ed002's Note - No chance, sorry.}



03 Aug 2014 12:10:24
Spanish papers mentioning we're in for danny alves? any truth?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Really bad news about Mane, but, if we are a team that wants to challenge for titles and in Europe on a regular basis, surely times like these will prove it right?


1.) 10 Oct 2017 20:06:35
Lets hope the Ox can step up over the next few weeks then. That’s what he’s here for right? Don’t expect him to Saturday though. Usual defence and Midfield, Salah, Couts and Bobby up top I reckon.

2.) 10 Oct 2017 20:17:20
Spot on, Westwood. Time for Ox or whoever gets in, to put their big boy pants (or shorts in this case) on and go out there and prove himself.

3.) 10 Oct 2017 20:23:11
Gutted about Mane, but let's be honest, he is 1 player, arguably our best. Now it's time to show we can still do it even without one of the top players, I believe we can we just need to stay focused. Utd are also missing top players, so there's no excuses. Same goes for the rest of the games, these things happen. The international breaks are a right pain in the backside.

4.) 10 Oct 2017 20:27:52
Is mane injured? In training? Gutted, our best finisher bar coutinio. At least we got couts eh! A whole summer on the edge of your couch waiting for Barcelona to announce the signing of coutinio. We stood up for ourselves. I can't remember who posted it but it was brilliant, it went.

"Jog on Barca! "

Losing mane is a massive blow. Look at our win rate with mane in the team and then when he is not. I'm hoping a surprise adzm lallana might make the team or the bench. AOC needs to shoe us why we paid £35.000.000 for him on Saturday.

5.) 10 Oct 2017 20:32:16
Superred91 yes mate, we need AOC to really step it up now, I honestly think he will as well, we can only hope, let's see what he's got.

6.) 10 Oct 2017 20:33:09
We’re poor in defence and weak in midfield, now one of our most effective attackers is out for six weeks. That’s top four gone.

7.) 10 Oct 2017 21:55:00
I think he will come good corleone mate, arsenal play nice football and they offered him a massive contract ro stay. He must have something eh.

8.) 10 Oct 2017 22:15:34
I hope so superred, you make a valid point there. Let's see if he surprises everybody, I think he will as well mate.

9.) 10 Oct 2017 22:34:43
What was senegals best player doing on the pitch in the 89th minute when they were 2nil up. they have lost him for the s. africa games now.

10.) 10 Oct 2017 23:57:13
massive blow to hear about mane i would give solanke a few games he scored goals in pre season and in the u20s give the lad a chance he's good in the air too. pointless bringing him in if he's just going to keep the bench warm.

11.) 11 Oct 2017 05:25:00
I think the ox is a good option to have when mane or salah get injured. The problem with ox, he clearly has good vision, but his execution is poor. The best advice to him is just to keep it simple with his passes and shots so we don't waste opportunities he will no doubtably get. he's got some of the worst shooting and passing i've seen in an attacking player, he just needs to acknowledge his limitations and play smart.



25 Sep 2017 20:51:26
watching the arsenal game and I have a question regarding the Jay Rodriguez penalty. So he is fouled in the penalty are, he gets back up, takes the shot and misses. Shouldn't the ref go back and award the penalty?


{Ed025's Note - absolutely steph..

1.) 25 Sep 2017 21:21:58
Another question on the Arsenal WBA match. Is there a worse player in the premier league than Hal Robson Kanu?

{Ed025's Note - im saying nothing.. :)

2.) 25 Sep 2017 21:24:30
Thanks man! Thought I was going crazy because everyone is going on about Jay being too honest for his own good and it just didn't make any sense! Everyone wants players to stay on their feet and stop diving, but if players see this, I'm sure they will be wondering, why should I!

{Ed025's Note - once livermore had missed he should have pointed to the spot, never mind the time lapse it was nailed on mate..

3.) 25 Sep 2017 21:43:13
Kolasinic looks like a monster!

4.) 25 Sep 2017 22:24:39
Ed don't you think giving both Rodriguez and then Livermore clear opportunities was enough to class as advantage. A penalty isn't a certain goal at the end of the day.

{Ed025's Note - its only an advantage if you score smp, when they never give the pen for what was a blatant foul and a possible sending off mate..

5.) 25 Sep 2017 22:48:36
We encourage players to stay on their feet and be honest, yet are seemingly penalised when doing so? IMO if Rodriguez stayed down the ref would've had no choice but to give a pen.

{Ed025's Note - thats right Rbbb, and its unfair when the divers like lallana, aguero and the like roll over if the wind is too strong mate..

6.) 25 Sep 2017 22:50:11
Plays like one too.

7.) 25 Sep 2017 22:55:12
Cookie Monster?

8.) 26 Sep 2017 01:05:49
Playing advantage means if there's no advantage you go back and award the original foul. ie. a penalty for sure.

Drives me nuts when refs penalise honesty as it just promotes the players having to emphasise the fact they've been fouled by rolling on the floor like they've been shot.

9.) 26 Sep 2017 06:33:34
Didnt see the incident but my view is that an advantage in that case should be given if the attacking team lost their chance to score a goal. Say if he loses balance and gets an off balance shot off then that should be advantage ended and play stopped for a pen. But if he regains footing to get a strike on target that happens to be saved, then advantage is gone.

{Ed001's Note - the referee did not indicate he was playing on for an advantage anyway, so it is likely that he just did not see it as a penalty. Not sure how he could have come to that conclusion, but his arms made no movement to indicate play on at all.

I agree with the bringing it back, if no advantage is gained the play should go back. Though we often see refs wave for playing the advantage when the ball has gone back 40 yards, so why do we expect them to show any kind of common sense?}

10.) 25 Sep 2017 23:34:44
Miralles Ed? We all have them in our teams, don't pretend we don't.

{Ed025's Note - sadly your right mate...well except for WBA..

11.) 26 Sep 2017 11:15:53
True ed1, and that us the challenge in the end is finding and training refs how to read the game and apply the laws accordingly.

{Ed001's Note - that is a challenge that seems well beyond the game right now.}



17 Sep 2017 11:38:36
Decent coach, decent players, decent results, decent team! There is no escaping this. Not anymore. Our expectations should also be managed. Why are people surprised about yesterdays result is beyond me! It just seems to be the norm that whenever we make some kind of progress, we manage to take a few steps back!


1.) 17 Sep 2017 11:58:25
What's your expectations for this session?

2.) 17 Sep 2017 12:18:38
Hopefully make top 4 again! I mean, what else can you expect when u can't defend?

3.) 17 Sep 2017 12:32:54
Top 4 won't be easy. We will have to replace one of Chelsea or Spurs and that looks difficult! No chance of catching UTD and City!

4.) 17 Sep 2017 13:27:17
Agree WCD. City and UTD had a plan before the season started and bought who they wanted and needed. We also had a plan but screwed it up. Just like our players, execute well in training but fail miserably during games.

5.) 17 Sep 2017 13:46:34
And some questions the fans who points out those?

6.) 17 Sep 2017 13:47:20
Utd and city are sooooo good, their style is amazing, I wish we had some of their players, ours are awful.

Give it a rest, I thought this page was for LIVERPOOL fans. This is a low, that's all. And we have only lost once, when we come good and go back to winning games by three goals do you think utd fans will be praising us? Of course not.

7.) 17 Sep 2017 14:34:56
Mate they sat back, snatched a goal, we equalized, and then they defended even deeper looking for a counter. It happened last season and will happen against teams determined to defend with 10 behind the ball. I thought we played well - the biggest issue for me, defensive lapse aside, was the final ball from a number of players - many times we simply made the wrong decision when it mattered and that broke down numerous good chances for us. Robertson, Can, Salah, Sturridge - all were guilty of choosing the wrong option at a crucial time - if that improves we will have far more clear goalscoring chances. Overall it was frustrating - I don't quite understand the meltdown fans are having though.

8.) 17 Sep 2017 14:35:58
superred i have a question for you? just because this is Lfc page we should not say good things about other team? should we follow you an the other posters who agree with you blindly? . please pass me your rose tinted glasses and then we can all see things the same way. my friend the first thing to do if you want to improve is to acknowledge that there is a need for improvment.
Back to the OP question about expectation for this year? hopefully top 4 and a trophy but realistically i think top 4 is above our weight so i will be happy with a trophy.

9.) 17 Sep 2017 14:50:31
I agree crazy but I have heard nothing but negative comments about liverpool and positive ones about our rivals. We played pretty well yesterday but this gets ignored and cities result gets drooled over.

Fair enough crazy, I didn't mean to sound rude mate. I just don't like utd. Up the toffees!

10.) 17 Sep 2017 15:22:54

Everton? lol the only person I like at there is Ed025? 😎😎.

11.) 17 Sep 2017 15:28:13
super at this moment Lfc and specially Kloop only deserve negative comments. We are falling backward due to Kloops arrogance. i like the guy he is very pasionate about Lfc, the issue is this 1step forawrd and 2 backwards are going on since last year. i still want Kloop to do good but i am slowly loosing that belief i had in him and his team.

12.) 17 Sep 2017 15:39:25
When Everton play utd it is an Everton win I'm hoping for.

13.) 17 Sep 2017 19:23:34
Yeah they deserve negative comments but not just negative ones.

What about. Liverpool slaughtering hoffenhiem when it looked a tricky task on paper, and qualifying for ucl for the first time in how many years? What about the strength of our bench yesterday? What about the four nil demolition of arsenal? What about the reborn moreno? What about salah, The new signing who has scored five times already? There are tonnes of positives this year and just coz we lost a game in which our best player was red carded and drew a game we actually lost last season, people completely lose faith in our manager and half the team. Let me remind you, yesterday was the first league goal we have conceded at anfield since April. I really hope we manage a clean sheet on tuesday coz I'm getting bored with the constant klopp/ lovren bashing.

14.) 17 Sep 2017 19:28:50
Superred, it is what WCD and his ilk do and has been doing it for ages. Other players are great, ours are crap. Crazy Horse does the same thing too. We can have discussions about other teams BUT no where would I ever trash our own players in favor of others. NEVER but these guys take joy in doing that cos it serves as a way to slate our team and manager. Pathetic attitude.

Back to the game. We were poor in the final third, making the wrong deciosions at the wron times and that is what killed us. Their goal? You can concede a goal and that is not the end of the world. What ithe issue is now is our inability to finish off our chances. This is where need to focus some of our attention on, as well as in defence.

15.) 17 Sep 2017 20:05:06
You're right bingo dude. Of course the boys deserve to be criticised when they don't get the result they should but the amount of negativity way exceeds what they actually deserve. Some people seem to take pleasure in knocking their own team. I sometimes wonder if they're utd fans incognito trying to rock the boat (yes that is an insult)

People who call for klopp's position to be questioned are the most dangerous imo. There aren't an endless supply of top notch managers out there. We are quite lucky to have klopp I believe. In the last 3 years it has been the signing that I was most excited about (klopp)

Some were on here last week talking about a collection for a "klopp out" banner or something, when in fact it was a 125 years of lfc banner that was paraded. Priorities!

Keep up the positivity guys!, you know who you are. Our team needs it's loyal fans at times like these.

16.) 17 Sep 2017 20:08:18
Was a 100% stone wall penalty at the end too bingo. I reckon if we were shooting toward the kop that would've been given. Gutted for solanke too, he should have scored. Being in the right position to get the chance was promising though.



28 Aug 2017 20:16:25
Lets not get carried away guys! We had a similar start last season and ended up 4th! Plus, the players need to show the desire and effort of last game to all games, otherwise, it's just the same old same old.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 20:50:36
It was STEP (H)1 last year now onto STEPH2! Bum Bum?

2.) 28 Aug 2017 20:56:06
We had a better start last season imo.
We were bad against Watford, average at best against Palace and lucky in Germany. For me we have played well in 2 out of 5 games and some people are getting a little carried away with yesterday's performance, both Arsenal and Hoffenheim where there for the taking imo. (Although we played great)
Its the same with Can, a week or two ago nobody seemed overly bothered if he left yet after 2 good performances people are making him out to be Mordic.
I just think we need to calm down expectations a touch.

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me cobra..

3.) 28 Aug 2017 21:00:19
Hope so too 007! Ability wise we are not lacking, it's the mental part that concerns me.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 01:20:24
Cobra there were plenty of posters extolling the virtues of can back end of last season and right through pre season so no it has not taken 2 good games as you try to simplistically put it for real fans to recognise his talent. As for being lucky against hoffenhiem that's complete nonsense and the boys performance against arsenal was fantastic, no matter how bad they were we still had to do the business and put the ball in the net. If it had been chelsea or manu that played like that against them people would be creaming themselves. I really don't get our own fanbase sometimes.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 08:05:48
We could have easily been 2/ 3 down at half time against Hoffenheim, our left side of defence was getting a torrid time.
I'm not denying we where great at home to Hoffenheim and Arsenal but I'm just saying people get too carried away and these are the same people who do the opposite, remember what it was like here after the Watford game?
So I'm not a real fan because I'm not getting carried away with Can? For me he daudles on the ball a lot and can slow down our play, he's only young and hopefully will improve this part of his game as other than that the rest of his game is quality and he's a physical beast.



20 Jul 2017 12:21:39
So let's say we won't get Keita this summer, and they will be more willing to sell next summer, is it possible for the two teams to reach an agreement this summer for Liverpool to have 1st refusal on the player when they decide to sell?


{Ed002's Note - No, not without modifying his contract - another club has already raised that issue with RBL.]

1.) 20 Jul 2017 13:40:21
Thanks man.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 14:02:23
There would be many more clubs willing to splash monkey on the player next summer. We stand no chance!

3.) 20 Jul 2017 14:23:44
To splash the monkey? Some clubs really will do anything to get their player. Must be Man United.

Even if they get him, I don't believe it will have anth to do with Coutinho. If they get Verati, then then will end interest in Coutinho.

Why blame Mignolet? why not blame Salah for missing a one on one with their goalie? Or our entire offense for messing every final ball? Or our defence who could barely handle a through ball? Was Mignolet at fault for the first 2 goals we conceded?
