Kicker reporting Liverpool have agreed a deal with Mainz for Karius.


{Ed002's Note - And a better option than Horn.}

1.) 16 May 2016 16:20:06
Sounds like a good deal if true, £7.8m could be money well spent, has spent time in England before so should fit in quite quickly. From what I've seen of him he looks a very good keeper.

2.) 16 May 2016 16:55:39
Can you elaborate on why Karius in your opinion is a better option than Horn please Eds 002?

{Ed002's Note - Karius is better thought of, has lived in England for three years and has not said that he is not interested in a move to Liverpool.}

3.) 16 May 2016 17:07:25
Edd a better option financially and that he is willing to move or better as in a better prospect ability wise?

4.) 16 May 2016 18:03:03
Thanks for the reply Edd. Always appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



08 May 2016 11:24:07
Seen a few reports linking us to charltons young forward Ademola Lookman. Do any of the eds know if we have watched him and have a genuine interest in bringing him to the club?


{Ed002's Note - Southampton, Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and, particularly, Tottenham are all interested in taking Ademola Lookman away from Charlton. Much is expected of him and I would expect (and hope) he takes advice to stay where he is for now - otherwise another youngster could disappear in to obscurity.}

1.) 08 May 2016 12:39:22
Thanks ed002. Hope we can do some kind of deal to sign him but leave him at charlton for a year. looks a real talent.

2.) 08 May 2016 15:54:42
I know you say about the bloated squad already at Liverpool Ed. but do you think under Klopps guidance his potential couldn't be turned into a real 1st team prospect at Liverpool?
Cheers dude/ t.

{Ed002's Note - He would not get a look in next season - it would do him no good whatsoever.}



02 Apr 2016 09:41:41
Todays rumour doing the rounds is: Liverpool are lining up a £25m bid for Dynamo Kiev's Andriy Yarmolenko.


1.) 02 Apr 2016 09:48:03
Yeah seen that. It's began which was expected (especially now with rumours of middle east investment) . got to admit I'd be very happy with Gotze, Yarmalenko and Ter Stegen.

2.) 02 Apr 2016 10:59:48
I'd sooner we kept the money and spent half of it on a player who would be better value.

3.) 02 Apr 2016 11:23:57
Yarmelenko ripped Azpilacueta a new one In the Champions league. 25 million these days seems fair, Considering we got 50 for Sterling.

4.) 02 Apr 2016 14:41:26
Hate to contradict you Yipster, he didn't tear anyone a new anything. He looked one paced, gave the ball away lots and just doesn't look a top class player. Would be gutted if we wasted that kind of money on him.

5.) 02 Apr 2016 15:37:50
You must have watched a different game to me then Mr dennis.

6.) 02 Apr 2016 23:56:31
Watched the game and he didn't look much more than a 6/ 10 player at best and the funniest thing is that there's a highlight real on YouTube which makes his performance look even worse! If that were possible.

7.) 03 Apr 2016 15:13:26
We need to stop dealing with the Ukrainian teams. All oligarchs who don't seem to like making a deal with American FSG. No thanks.

8.) 03 Apr 2016 15:45:52
Unfortunately agree with fear, never seems to work out with Ukrainian teams which is a shame because the players we have tried to get from them (konoplyanka, mikhitaryan, and texeria) for me would have been great signings. but never happen!

9.) 03 Apr 2016 17:26:07
I wouldn't waste any time sending scouts out there frankly. Never mind the fact that Yarmelenko simply isn't that good.



28 Mar 2016 13:19:43
Zielinski on Liverpool: "Some people may think it's only rumours but, I know something more about it. ".


1.) 28 Mar 2016 22:09:15
Not quite what he said.



05 Mar 2016 12:56:52
Seen a few reports linking us with ben arfa today. do any of the ed's know if we have any real interest in him?


{Ed001's Note - none that I know of.}

1.) 05 Mar 2016 14:45:06
god I hope not we need quality, he had his chance in the premier league, sounds like silly rumour time has started early.

2.) 05 Mar 2016 17:42:55
I hope not. If that's the best that the scouting team can do then they should all resign now!

3.) 06 Mar 2016 10:18:41
He has been superb in France, and showed some class in Newcastle, attitude is the problem.

{Ed001's Note - you are right, he has appalling attitude problems and a very big weight issue due to a tendency to not train hard enough. Mind, being superb in a French league utterly bereft of any quality other than PSG is not saying much. After all Joe Cole was a success there when on loan from us, the quality is woeful.}

4.) 06 Mar 2016 12:07:08
spot on ed001 there is no competition in france anymore psg have blown away every team, the "title race" was non exsistent due to the strength of psg, its not good for the future of French football, even joey barton looked half decent playing there, I think that says it all.

{Ed001's Note - it has got so bad that PSG are actually looking for ways they can help strengthen the opposition!}

5.) 06 Mar 2016 18:22:54
they could stop buying players they don't need some lower premier league teams players should suffice instead of the overkill that they field weekly now psg would benefit hugely from a euro league out of the less prestigious euro leagues psg need to be in a better league the most.

Apparently there's a FSG protest at melwood tonight.


{Ed002's Note - Get down there and burn them out.}

1.) 31 Aug 2016 14:53:10
Really? Why? Are they guilty of not putting any money in to rescue the club from liquidation, not funding any players and not arranging the ground improvements?

There are some stupid fans in the world.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 14:55:30
That reply cracked me up!

3.) 31 Aug 2016 15:03:09
*Morons act stupidly outside Melwood.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 15:03:59
What are FSG protesting about?

5.) 31 Aug 2016 15:06:19
Don't see how there can be a protest against the owners.

They bailed us out and have put plenty of cash put up for transfers over the years.

The simple fact is the money has been wasted year after year.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 15:10:01
That's disappointing to hear.

7.) 31 Aug 2016 15:10:12
What are they protesting? It makes no sense.

8.) 31 Aug 2016 15:21:30
FSG protestesting against ungrateful fans!

9.) 31 Aug 2016 15:27:48
Not sure why my post didn't make it through. this makes me so angry though.

10.) 31 Aug 2016 15:34:22
and what would this protest be about. after they just finished upgrading the stadium?

11.) 31 Aug 2016 15:48:44
Price of donuts has risen too high after our deal with dunkin.

12.) 31 Aug 2016 15:48:44
Joke mate. these ain't fans. . they are not even worth talking about. WOB jobs. waste of breath.

13.) 31 Aug 2016 15:58:32
There really are some gullible people around, settle down it's a wind up! Although it did flush out some lemmings peddling F$G propaganda. Quick boys and girls look outside the window there's some flying 🐷.

14.) 31 Aug 2016 16:06:16
Which bit of FSG basically saving the club, lavishing pots of money on players and building a new stand is actually propaganda Waro?

My only disappointment with FSG is that the approach to buying players seems a little bit bonkers, they need to do something about the advice the receive on that issue but other than that I think they're doing OK.

15.) 31 Aug 2016 16:09:59
I knew you wouldn't be to far away waro. sad really that people want to wind people up. What it flushed out is people who respect what fsg have done for the club which u do not seem to have a clue about and most of all you have zero respect. I am sure this won't get posted as you seem to escape critism for some reason.

16.) 31 Aug 2016 16:36:26
Thank u eds. Appreciated.

17.) 31 Aug 2016 16:56:09
Lfcdiamond, in what way do I escape criticism? I'm calling you all out on your F$G BS, there you go feel free to criticise. F$G have set this club back years, to the point were we are now considered a top 6 team or worse, (hopefully this is slowly going to change under klopp) terrible appointments terrible transfer policy terrible funding of player recruitment, the only things they've done correctly is appoint klopp and improve revenue streams through sponsorship, but we don't see the money with regard to the latter!

They've been here nearly 6 years and the club (on the pitch) have gone backwards FACT, but you all feel free to believe the propaganda and then regurgitate it for them, myself I'd rather see what's going on with my own eyes and form my own opinion rather than just listen to the rhetoric of others with ulterior motives.

18.) 31 Aug 2016 17:08:18
Come on waro. where ru now? Plant your little seed and then go silent. What is your objective with all this hate and propaganda about fsg? I'm really intrigued to know.

19.) 31 Aug 2016 17:13:50
Which bit of rescued from near bankruptcy do you not understand? You do realise that we'd have ended up like Portsmouth or Leeds if FSG hadn't stepped up. No club owner is perfect and these guys aren't but please get real.

20.) 31 Aug 2016 17:44:02
Johnnyr1970, that is a lie that people like you continue to peddle, there were plenty of other people wanting to invest, F$g bought us on the cheap and when they sell will walk away with a fantastic profit and people like you will thank them as there sipping cocktails on a yacht somewhere in the Caribbean high fiving each other. Your in a long line of gullible fools so at least your not alone.

21.) 31 Aug 2016 17:47:03
Well that post made you look really stupid Lfcdiamond didn't it😉

Take your pick to which one I'm referring to.

22.) 31 Aug 2016 17:49:22
Oh waro. u will never be happy whoever we have as owners will you? Let me guess you want the fans to own the club? So. tell me what your vision is? Let's hear it shall we. I'm waiting. I think you are very wrong about this but I'm all for hearing the reasons behind your hate, so the stage is yours. I'm waiting.

23.) 31 Aug 2016 18:04:34
I have to say I don't recall there being a long list of potential buyers at the time we almost went out if business. But perhaps I've been brainwashed by something in the pies I eat at the match. Oh well.

24.) 31 Aug 2016 14:51:54
lol. Bit extreme ed.

25.) 31 Aug 2016 15:15:28
Are u kidding me?! A protest about what? These are the sort of fans who are a disgrace. There is nothing to protest about. They are bloody good owners. People have real short memories and this makes me sick. Joke fans. actually I won't call them fans I'll call them scum.

26.) 31 Aug 2016 15:24:16
Ed02 any thoughts on why people are unhappy with FSG

they have steadied the ship after last owners, they can't be accused of not spending money, just completed a part of the stadium redevelopment. I saw Mcallister doing a walk round of it on a little clip it looked wicked

I read an article on just how bad things got under the last owners, so surely wanting the new ones out is crazy

Just interested on your opinion and what others think.

{Ed002's Note - It is the fans Red-Mist. Liverpool sold their marquee signing from last summer and have not replaced him with a marquee signing.}

27.) 31 Aug 2016 18:24:26
I do respect the money FSG have spent but some of you are so blind. FSG are great at advertising what good they have done but don't tell everyone how they purchased LFC almost illegally. Which of their promises have materialised? New stadium becomes new stand (partly fans objecting), structured club? Club with no structure and cannot purchase players unless they're paying way over the odds for players we don't need and never learn their lesson. Team us still unbalanced. Where is top four, where are the quality players? We've got none. All the same issues are still there to see on the pitch. The.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool was not purchased illegally.}

28.) 31 Aug 2016 18:28:18
Yeah I feel really stupid waro. Now be a gent and post a reply so everyone can see the reasons for your hate. Maybe u should stop going to the games or posting on this site as a protest. You are living in the dark ages still. The club don't want or need people like you supporting them and I say support very loosely. I'm waiting for your reply.

29.) 31 Aug 2016 19:31:20
Lfcdiamond there are many long and exhaustive posts I've put up in the past about my opinions of our owners so fell free to look for them because I'm not doing it again because believe it or not your not the first high and mighty poster to ask this question, tell you what, why don't you tell me what there successes are and what in essence makes them such fantastic owners!

You do realise that the thing your posting on and getting so irate about isn't actually happening don't you? Nobody is protesting tonight!

But I am interested in your scum comments though, did you think we were scum when we protested against hicks and Gillette? I'll bet you did but changed your tune when you found out what they were doing!

I take it you thought we were scum when we protested ticket price rises? but (and this is the crucial part) you hide behind your computer screen, why didn't you come to the game and tell us we were scum and not real Liverpool supporters? You seem really really upset by this so why didn't you pop along to the game and show us what true fans are? I no the answer so that question is rhetorical really. There's an expression "all talk and no balls", fits you well kid😉.

30.) 31 Aug 2016 19:52:16
Waro. I am talking solely about you and not the protest. A lot of people on here are sick of your negative views and are most likely wishing you didn't bother posting on here any more.

I go to games don't you worry about that son. I go to most games in fact and you are confusing protesting about things that warrant a protest with pure drivel which you spout about fsg. Your views are based on small minded biased rubbish.

So do us a favour and take a break from posting here because it's boring everyone to death. unless u are going to post something intelligent.

I think you are the one sat behind your computer screen spouting bs and thinking your brave. I never called you scum I called people who want to protest against fsg scum. that's what they are. not wanted at the club and if the hat fits then you can wear it son.

31.) 31 Aug 2016 20:01:36
Last post on this. Waro is the kind of fan that Ed002 often rants about - small-minded and petty with a sense of entitlement about the club's divine right to win things. No, these owners don't get everything right - none do, just ask Arsenal or Man Utd fans - but would you rather we'd been bought by DIC who also almost went bust and are based in a country were human rights aren't much of a consideration? Or I suppose you'd welcome Chinese ownership? Another country with dubious ethics. You stick with your potest fella, you and your 20 angry pals. Let the rest of us try and enjoy the coming season without your whining.

32.) 31 Aug 2016 20:08:19
Well said johnny1970. Good to hear someone else voicing the same opinion as me and quite a few others. So. waro do us a favour and stay away from this site because you and your views are not wanted here. bye bye son.

Interview with alex teixeira. Asked about joining Liverpool.


1.) 27 Jan 2016 17:44:25
I don't know how AnnfieldHQ pulled this interview off, but surely shakhtar knew about it? Are they using this to try and get us to pay more for him? I'm really confused I've never seen anything like this before.

5.) 27 Jan 2016 18:05:30
Wouldn't Teixeira be in a lot of trouble after this interview? I cannot imagine Shakhtar will allow such a thing to happen.

Is the translation accurate? I don't speak Portuguese (I assume that's what he's speaking, given his nationality) .

{Ed002's Note - Brazilian Portuguese which is different to Portuguese.}

8.) 27 Jan 2016 19:32:01
Hey ed's after this interview where he supposedly says he wants to come to Liverpool, I wonder if he's being truthful or would he say something similar tomorrow if Chelsea or city or whoever put in a bid for him? My point is does he really want to come to anfield or does he just want out to any big club? Cheers for any opinions.

{Ed002's Note - He has previously thanked the other interested clubs and has on plenty of occasions mentioned Chelsea.}

9.) 27 Jan 2016 20:10:09
Thanks for the reply . Have a good evening.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

10.) 27 Jan 2016 22:04:56
The translation is correct except for when talking about the offer sum. Translation says 32m euros, what he actually says is 'don't know how many millions'.

11.) 28 Jan 2016 00:57:02
Thought he was a bit hesitant walking up the stairs at the end. Hamstrings must be dodgy. Surely we could haggle them down a few million based on that ;)



23 Jan 2016 16:46:21
Alex Teixeira has told Shakhtar Donetsk that he would like to leave the club this month. (The Guardian)

Javier Mascherano: Former Liverpool FC star sentenced to one year jail over tax fraud.


1.) 21 Jan 2016 15:31:39
What a shame 😄.

2.) 21 Jan 2016 15:34:33
You do realise he won't actually go to jail?

{Ed001's Note - but he will have to pay another fine to get out of it.}

3.) 21 Jan 2016 16:01:08
A fine yes but I believe in Spanish law for sentences under 2 years you don't go to jail unless it's for violent crime
So I've been told.

4.) 21 Jan 2016 17:15:17
Yes Chris your correct but there are exceptions in that law but like Ed said he will just pay a further fine on top of what he already has to pay and he won't have to have a frying pan strapped around his buttocks for health and safety reasons


5.) 21 Jan 2016 17:15:17
