Keita wants to leave and Liverpool will have a bid of 68M + add ons accepted within a fortnight.

why no other teams after him and only Liverpool? Any obvious reason?

Why not Spurs, Juv, RM, Barcelona after him if he is so good.

Got Saturday's winning lottery numbers as well while yer at it there Mystic Meg?

I don't see it happening. Great if it does not the end of the world if it doesn't.

6.) 27 Jun 2017 00:27:37
Awesome Skezza, what's the lotto numbers next week?

7.) 27 Jun 2017 00:48:40
No bids have been placed for Ox and Keita.

8.) 27 Jun 2017 03:13:14
Because they don't need him £68m bad.

9.) 27 Jun 2017 06:07:20
Couple of general questions about the transfer process here. Apologies if done already. During the transfer window we all get a bit excited when we read these headlines; 'Liverppol bid £xxxm for player y' etc. How long is it taking these journos to get the information and how much time are the club investing into completing these deals. When I went to bed, no bids submitted for Ox or Keita, wake up and reports of bids. (10pm - 5am) Do they (whoever 'they' are) work round the clock until a deal is done? Work nights, get em drunk and try and get away with a lower offer? Are they in teams working shifts? My estimation is that the people involved in a transfer are normal people with families and need to go home to eat and sleep like we all do. I reckon the media are either getting info late or are fabricating stories for paper sales. (Probably the latter) .

{Ed001's Note - it is the latter usually. It is very very rare that bids go in. However it is not exciting enough for the tabloids to say that Liverpool phoned up to ask if X is available for transfer. That is not a story, but Liverpool putting in a bid for X sounds exciting, even if it is not true.}

10.) 27 Jun 2017 07:31:42
Ed1, may I ask how a deal is worked out after the initial contact please? For example, Liverpool have enquired about the availability of Player Y (for this case we'll assume they haven't tapped him up) . How would a fee be calculated from there? Is it as simple as finding a middle ground between what the buying club wish to pay and what the selling club wish to receive?


{Ed001's Note - not quite that simple, as there is also the details such as when the payments are received, in what amounts at a time, if there are add ons, potentially buy-back clauses and many other minor details too.}

11.) 27 Jun 2017 07:54:53
Maxlfc, Nostradamus is to become our chief scout 😁.

12.) 27 Jun 2017 08:41:14
I have also heard that our home kit next season will be Red and we'll be fielding 11 players for our first game.

13.) 27 Jun 2017 08:22:52
Thanks Ed1. Is it the minor details details that usually make the negotiations last so long or is it just the overall process?

{Ed001's Note - usually ironing out the details, though payment terms are not really minor.}

14.) 27 Jun 2017 09:36:25
11 players all in red Skezza? Now there's a scoop! We are playing with no keeper next season! Mind you some would say we've had no keeper for the last 4 years. ;-)

15.) 28 Jun 2017 16:36:34
Tbf to skezza lallanas banana he said wed play in red and have 11 players on the field, not 11 players in red 🤣😉.

Spoke to Harko earlier, he reckons we'll sell Sakho to West Brom after they sell Evans. Both players just agreeing personal terms.



1.) 20 Aug 2017 00:21:39
Will Sakho go though? He turned down WBA before and he wants to go back to London.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 01:37:12
Hope Sakho goes ASAP. We need to get players off the books including Markovic, Flanno, Wilson etc who are never going to get a look in under Klopp. The age bill does seem bloated with the number of players on the books right now.

3.) 20 Aug 2017 04:25:17
please don't tell me you are talking about Harry Wilson?

4.) 20 Aug 2017 04:50:48
Ya crazy horse, I'm talking about Harry Wilson. The kid's never going to get a chance under Klopp. Kent (who is ahead of Wilson in the pecking order) did not even make the bench against Palace. Half the bright young talents for the future that everyone claims will make valuable squad players or even first team players will be gone in the next 18 months. Even Grujic can't get a game under Klopp.
Better to get what we can for the likes of Wilson, Flanno and allow them to build their careers elsewhere.

5.) 20 Aug 2017 07:35:21
Flanno is available for transfer.

6.) 20 Aug 2017 08:46:58
Harry Wilson is injured and has been for most of the summer. Would you like Klopp to start playing injured players?



15 Aug 2017 11:18:51
Our transfer dealings are a complete joke. I've tried to keep my chin up this whole window, but starting to realise just how pathetic we are now.

Desperately need a new CB and DM IMO. I can't see VVD joining, so in the ED's opinion who do you think we will try to sign that is actually available? It's clear we need leaders / physically strong defensive players.

Thank you for all your hard work guys and for putting up with our endless gripes.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know who, if anyone, Liverpool will look to if they cannot sign VDD.}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:39:53
Hi how about stefan de vrij or maybe even smalling?

2.) 15 Aug 2017 11:51:59
There best be some other young CB somewhere in Europe called Smalling because if you mean Chris Smalling i'm afraid you've lost it mate.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 11:54:25
This is really for an eds for some reason I have it in my head alderwield has a 28 million buyout clause am I right?

{Ed002's Note - Buyout clauses are incredibly rare and where would he get £28M from?}

4.) 15 Aug 2017 12:13:03
Mo Salah must feel great hearing about how our transfer window has been "disasterous", a "complete joke" and "the worst summer of transfers ever".

Bunch of ingrates.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 17:53:47
Thanks for the reply Eds.

Ron, i don't think it's particularly ungrateful to show a bit of annoyance for a club you spend a lot of your time and money following year in year out.

Salah looks to be a decent buy but I'd consider tapping up players, having no plan B and our star player handing in a transfer request hours after we release a statement saying he's going nowhere a complete joke.

If we manage to get VVD I promise i'll be happy.



08 Jul 2017 16:20:49
I don't think we need to get too down about the Keita signing fading away. we've got a decent set of central midfielders and let's be honest, who would have been thinking a few months ago that one of our main summer transfer targets would be a CM!?

If it doesn't happen it gives us more time/ money to focus on the vital ingredients which are a lb and a cb let's be honest.

Hendo being back is huge. Coutinho also playing in cm will fill a void. If we can't get keita and there are no other viable CM options i can see klopp going for another winger.

All in all, looking forward to an exciting and hopefully injury free season coming up!


1.) 08 Jul 2017 18:06:31
How strange because you posted at the end of June "Keita wants to leave and Liverpool will have a bid of 68M + add ons accepted within a fortnight"
Just goes to show like a lot of you ITK types never trust Twitter.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 18:42:04
I like your enthusiasm Skezza but Klopp may well want to strengthen in midfield. We will be fighting on 4 fronts and will need at least 6 quality midfielders if we are playing a 3 man midfield. If you include Coutinho as one, then we only have enough if you also include either Milner, TAA or Grujic. This is risky especially if you are using these players to cover other positions.

I also suspect Klopp doesn't wholly trust Henderson or Can as the central role in a midfield trio and that's why he wants Keita.

It's the 'banter' page.

5.) 08 Jul 2017 20:41:51
I'm not too down at all as I was never for signing him for that ridiculous amount. If we have a shot at him in the future then why not as he is a very talented but unproven player? We all thought Salah was gone yet as fate would have it 3 years later, he's at Melwood and is a much better player than he was 4 years ago.

I'm a Liverpool fan but my family are all Yellows (Norwich fans. )

Maddison is a class act, i've seen him play multiple times this season. In my opinion he's not far off Dele Alli already. He's composed on the ball, great vision, workrate, passing, shooting and gets stuck in like a Klopp player.

Would love to see him at Liverpool, even if he gets loaned straight back out. He's got the potential to be the creative CM we need in my opinion, although i can't see him starting at the moment, his price now won't be anything near as inflated as it will be in 2-3 years.

cheers kopette. i'm pretty happy about this, always thought it was a no brainer to be honest. can play in a variety of positions, adds bags of pace and has been severely mis-managed over the years. can't wait to see how he plays under klopp.

our squad is finally starting to look healthy, other than that cb position.

next signing please :)

Please use below template going forward :)

Q: Ed's are we interested in "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE"

A: I am not aware of any Liverpool approach to "INSERT CLUB NAME HERE" for "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE" at this time - I assume if they do it would be as an alternative to "INSERT PLAYER B's NAME HERE"

Agreed Superred. I can only see it happening if there aren't a load of ridiculous add ons and we've agreed a deal for an immediate replacement like Kovacic, so basically 0% chance.

Starting to think that the only possible additional incoming will be Höwedes or a similar CB.

The way De Boer sets his team up helps us. I think we'll win comfortably. Hope Stuzza starts and gets an early goal, hoping for him to really show up this season.
