Media rumours about that we have interest in the 20 year old Turkish midfielder, Yusuf Yazici?


1.) 04 Oct 2017 23:02:33
never heard of him but after a quick google search, apparently utd and atletico madrid want him as well - any good?

2.) 04 Oct 2017 23:28:53
Another attacking midfielder, just what we need.



20 Dec 2016 15:08:27
Hi Eds. Great win yesterday. (I searched for Maia. ) Press is linking us with a Brazilian named Thiago Maia. Anything in it? Or would he be priced out of a move anyways?


{Ed002's Note - Santos' Thiago Maia is of interest to PSG, Monaco, Zenit and Napoli in addition to Chelsea, Fiorentina and Manchester United who all have sustained interest and spoke with his previous agent. He is one of three players at the Olympics that Chelsea were interested in and a bid is still expected after seemingly successful discussions were held with his new representative - but Chelsea will not look to pay the outrageous asking price. PSG has spoken to Santos and after being rebuffed may return with an offer and Napoli have made it clear that they too are interested in making an offer, but the interest of Juventus, Monaco and Arsenal has waned - as the interest of Manchester United may have done. It is unlikely that any move will happen before the summer or potentially January 2018 unless an over the odds offer is made. Liverpool had a scout present at a Santos game in November (as did Zenit, Benfica and Kashima Antlers according to Santos) and that may be the cause of the report regarding Liverpool interest - but I really don't know why they had someone at the game. If they are looking to Maia it would be a significant spend on a teenager who plays as a defensive midfield player so it may take a change in shape of the side to fit him in - given Lucas can't get a game.}

1.) 20 Dec 2016 22:12:11
Could a creative DM signing move Henderson alongside Lallana?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, Klopp could change the way the team is organised in order to accommodate a teenager.}

2.) 21 Dec 2016 09:10:57
Curious Eds, do you rate him? Who does he remind you of as a player? Were there any other players worth scouting at that game?

Thanks and Happy Holidays Eds!

{Ed002's Note - I don't "rate" players but he is a player that plenty of clubs have shown an interest in. Scouts go to games all of the time - that is there job.}



26 Aug 2016 17:20:32
Ed002 I see that the appreciation society has gone a bit dull lately. You not been feeling the love here recently?


{Ed002's Note - I didn't know that and of course I don't know who runs it, but I appoint you my head of boosting. Sign up for the Ed002 Appreciation Society at: }

1.) 26 Aug 2016 18:04:42
Lol I dub thee head of boosting. I just google to see who you've wrecked recently and I haven't seen one in a while. Unfortunately I am not too fond of facebook. But know you're still #1 in my book Ed. Or #2.uhhhhh.

2.) 27 Aug 2016 02:56:52
Been using this site for a few years, tho never posted/ registered before.

just wanted to thanks to all of the eds, and several posters who i always enjoy reading.

been here since dodgy sightings at lennon airport and no daft questions to the eds.

and ed2 who always makes me smile. thx for all the info you provide.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, and thanks for the kind words. As far as I know, nobody knows if he will be on the 1230 or 1300 arrival at John Lennon International today but there are bound to be a lot of fans at the airport hoping for a glimpse of him.}



14 Aug 2016 23:02:58
Hey Eds, we haven't heard anything about sakho. Haven't seen him in any training photos lately either. Is he on the way out? Honestly had kinda forgotten about him.


{Ed002's Note - He will be sold if a buyer can be found.}

1.) 14 Aug 2016 23:28:37
Dang that's crazy. Difficult situation this.

Thanks Ed.

2.) 14 Aug 2016 23:17:35
He will be back training with the first team this week!

3.) 15 Aug 2016 02:09:57
Is this because of the drug test Ed? He was great last year prior to that debacle.

{Ed001's Note - no.}

4.) 15 Aug 2016 07:32:21
Its to do with him being sent home from the pre season tour in Erica I guess.
Showing complete disrespect by being late for the flight, then a training session and then a club meal.
Klopp showing everyone who is boss by bringing the hammer down hard.

5.) 15 Aug 2016 08:15:33
A preseason tour in Erica? Must have missed that 😳.

6.) 15 Aug 2016 00:31:03
Although I respect your opinion/ info Ed, I highly doubt both Klopp and LFC would be so niave to sell one of their best centre backs due to a behavoural issue. Don't get me wrong he has a lot to do, to get back in to the first 11 but selling him would be complete madness, leaving us then with Klavan, Matip, Lovren and a very inexperienced Gomez who is still recovering from an Acl and Achilles injury. When on form he is vital to our defence, we missed him hugely in the Europa league final too.

7.) 15 Aug 2016 01:17:44
Cheers ed, absolutely ruthless from Klopp but these are the likes of ball I wish Rodgers would have shown.

8.) 15 Aug 2016 05:58:52
from using the search function, do you know if roma are still interested ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No, they have taken Fazio on loan. Housseyni has been spoken to by the club and Besiktas are known to be looking for a centre back but at best will want a loan with an option to buy. Housseyni however is insistant that Sakho stays and if that is the case he will no doubt be spending his time looking for the deal that suits them and not Liverpool. Housseyni has been told that the club expect to recover their investment in him.}

9.) 15 Aug 2016 08:35:00
So that would make Lovren, Klavan, Matip and Gomez our 4 centre backs.

10.) 15 Aug 2016 09:03:30
Hi Ed, is this a case of Klopp setting a clear example to the rest of the squad in terms of behavioral expectations or would it be fair to say there's a little more going on?

Obviously getting sent home from a pre-season tour is a serious matter but you'd be forgiven for thinking it didn't warrant selling the player.

Perhaps it was simply the final straw given the banned substance debacle etc?

{Ed001's Note - isn't enough that he is going? Klopp has made the decision and that is the important thing.}

11.) 15 Aug 2016 09:33:24
thanks ed002 for the update.

12.) 15 Aug 2016 10:15:08
Hi Eds, the signing of Klavan seemed to be a bit of a surprise at the time but if you're correct about Sakho hindsight makes it look like he was brought in as his replacement. Is there a shred of truth in that or am I making a connection where none exists?

{Ed002's Note - The decision regarding Sakho was taken after Klavan signed but you would think that there was some thought process involved.}

13.) 15 Aug 2016 10:21:15
I really liked sakho, he seemed to be warm to the fans, have a bit of a personality which is good for morale and was easily our best cb (not the hardest achievement)

Shame his attitude appears to have dropped, has he always been like this or is it more recent?

Thought the club were sticking by him after the drugs incident so is it that it was ultimately disrespectful of him to be how he has after that or more long term issues?

14.) 15 Aug 2016 10:27:46
Thanks Ed2.

15.) 15 Aug 2016 10:21:15
I really liked sakho, he seemed to be warm to the fans, have a bit of a personality which is good for morale and was easily our best cb (not the hardest achievement)

16.) 15 Aug 2016 12:57:22
Hi ed, would Sakho of been informed of this decision or not?

{Ed002's Note - He will know that the club are open to taking offers for him and he will have spoken with Housseyni.}

17.) 15 Aug 2016 13:56:46
I was excited when we signed him to be honest, but having watched him live a few times I'm glad we're selling. Everything else aside I just don't rate the lad and I've stated that before. I never got the Enrique thing and people on here raved about him? Like the look of klaven think we missed a trick with Ashley Williams and should spend big on a spurs LB. although I'm thinking klopp rates milner there.

18.) 15 Aug 2016 15:46:22
I find this upsetting - to me, he is the most able CB in the squad and losing him will be a significant blow to us and our ability to play out from the back.

19.) 15 Aug 2016 17:16:31
I'm glad don't rate Sakho always a liability for a mistake.



23 Mar 2016 01:29:47
Hi ed002. I read something about our scouts being impressed by American Bobby wood. While I find it difficult to believe, could you please tell me who he has attracted the interest of?


{Ed002's Note - Union Berlin's Hawaiian Bobby Wood is wanted in the summer by Hamburg with Kaiserslautern, Bayer Leverkusen and St. Pauli all being impressed enough to send scouts on more than one occasion to watch him this season.}

1.) 23 Mar 2016 13:31:23
Thank you Ed.

2.) 25 Mar 2016 06:54:42
No disrespect meant at all, but he's from Hawaii, not Hawaiian. Hawaiian is a race, not a nationality, and represents the identity of a race and culture that remains a minority even in it's own land. Again, no disrespect, just helping to spread knowledge as a Native Hawaiian myself.

On a side note. probably a fabricated story about an American based in Germany, not fancied by his German national team manager, and then linked to a club in an English-speaking country with a German manager. Would love it to be true, but I don't believe in miracles. just Leicester winning the league apparently. Apologies for the tangent. Up the reds.

{Ed002's Note - Thank you for the correction.}

ed001, I see you offering really high praise to Naby Keita. I am excited by what I'm hearing about the lad, hope he pans out to be a monster. That being said, I wanted to do some searching of my own, and I find he's been banned for 3 games for a Mane like challenge apparently. Way to get my hopes up . : (.


{Ed001's Note - should be able to find some RBL games here mate: full game videos I think.}

1.) 21 Sep 2017 17:56:03
I have Bundesliga games on my cable subscription since last season and I got to watch Naby play a bit and indeed, his talent is immense BUT I was not sold on the 75m fee for him cos it was too much. I watched him a bit already this season and he is the real deal and Klopp and FSG played a blinder getting him for next season. Oh and btw, there is Bayern vs Wolfsburg this Fri and Origi will be on show as he scored in his last game.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 18:14:12
Bingo - good shout for Bayern vs Wolfsburg, thank you!

3.) 21 Sep 2017 19:45:49
No probs, Hijkle.



20 Sep 2017 03:35:10
I see some Ox bashing below and I'm quite confused by it. He wasn't a world beater by any means but he had some good moments. Ox looked exhausted by the end but that's expected. He was at least forward thinking and worked hard. He's going to get better with game time. If you're going to bash someone, bash the Brazilian superstar whose back hurt too bad to join us for preseason. He's been pretty bad to say the least.

The only positive I can think of, is seeing Danny ings in a red shirt again. I Want that lad to succeed so badly, but I fear he won't get a chance. Solanke is not first team ready yet, and I think ings deserves his chance. More substitute appearances would do him a world of good, to build fitness.


1.) 20 Sep 2017 04:57:53
i had couple of good moment back in 1999 and i will give my blood for Lfc can i play as well please.

2.) 20 Sep 2017 04:59:57
Can you tell what was the actual need of buying him other than " I trust Klopp" Or how is he better than Origi / Ryan Kent. I am dying to hear anything valid from you! Can I tell you as a pure winger Ryan Kent should be ahead of him? Or you could have actually brought a good out and out winger for that sum. He was never good enough to play in the middle and by last night I don't think he will ever play on the flanks either! You are talking about a £40 mill player here!

3.) 20 Sep 2017 05:01:07
I wonder if any other player any other club has taken more abuse on their first start than Chamberlain has tonight, that's true supporters for you!

4.) 20 Sep 2017 05:07:45
First half he was decent second half he was woeful there’s no getting away from it. Like a lot of the side he tired badly around 55-60 minutes and then they cane into the game that’s what can happen when you play a team that’s barely had 99 minutes between then since pre season.

5.) 20 Sep 2017 06:22:02
We could have had Mahrez for 10 mill more. Oh yeah I forgot he's only had 1 good season (pretty amazing season) which is 1 more than the Ox.

6.) 20 Sep 2017 06:42:18
Suggest we all get of Ox's back. I'm not sure why we bought him but it's his first match and I've seen others play far worse. Let's give him time and see what Klopps plan is for the lad and judge towards second half of the season. Biggest worry was how Hendo and Gini failed to inspire the team IMO as we needed that cutting edge to continue second half from the middle of the park and it completely when coutinho left.

7.) 20 Sep 2017 07:02:45
Not worried about Hendo as I never counted him! Wijnaldum is not a CM or in any form. By the end of this season you ll come in terms with that fact!

8.) 20 Sep 2017 07:49:55
£35m when we are lightweight in midfield and have no decent centre halves is an absolute appalling signing.

9.) 20 Sep 2017 08:12:32
Harry, you go too far, mate. Such vitriol against your own players over and over and over. We get it. You don't rate Henderson and you firmly believe we need a DM or DLP. I agree we will probably benefit from a DM but no need to go on and on.

10.) 20 Sep 2017 08:34:46
Gini and can offer more than Henderson on a weekly basis but the fact that all three are quite similar makes our midfield one dimensional, addnin grujic who doesn't seem that different and everything is predictable.



18 Sep 2017 13:55:16
I grow so tired of reading "we deserved more from the (insert name) match. " You get what you deserve. I understand playing better than the opposition, but it means nothing if you don't score more goals than the other team. It's that simple. Yet another excuse instead of addressing the problem head on 😔.

Then again, I get flustered reading "we will be better next time. " I guess there are only so many things you can say to the press.

Less excuses, more results!


1.) 18 Sep 2017 14:11:02
Unless of course, you have a 100% stone wall penalty in the last five minutes tjred.

2.) 18 Sep 2017 14:11:17
That isn't given.

3.) 18 Sep 2017 15:08:53
Tjred, I agree with you in the main as we were to blame for not taking our chances cos had we don that, the disallowded pen is a non issue. BUT it being disallowed dis still an issue.

4.) 18 Sep 2017 15:53:03
I get that but we shouldn't have been in a position to need that penalty.

5.) 18 Sep 2017 15:16:35
Or could be missed?

6.) 18 Sep 2017 17:46:15
Not with Milner on the pitch.

7.) 18 Sep 2017 17:58:30
There's that too, Mcgoveb.



08 Sep 2017 13:42:23
There's a difference between being a realist and a contrarian. Never being pleased does not make you a realist ed025. We don't have xavi and iniesta in the middle. So what? Hundreds of teams have not had xavi and iniesta in the middle and still won trophies. There's no reason not to be excited for the season ahead. I think barring a sketchy decision by refs in the champions league, we have a small, but decent chance of going all the way there too.

Bottom line is, all true reds fans should be excited for the season ahead. I fail to see that excitement in any of Harry's posts. Could that be me being a realist ed025? 🤔.


{Ed025's Note - thats you being very optimistic to the point of delusion TJ, there is no reason why you cant win things of course with a little bit of luck which many teams in the past have proven, but lets not go down the road of everyone thinking liverpool fans are a joke again with their over inflated expectations, all im saying is keep it real my friend..

1.) 08 Sep 2017 15:04:15
The likes of Real Madrid and PSG would slaughter our defence unfortunately. However, id be optimistic against any of the other sides, except maybe United. Seem to be a bogey team for us recently, especially now that Jose is there.

2.) 08 Sep 2017 15:22:13
AC, i don't fear PSG at all. They are weak at the back and without Matuidi their midfield looks cumbersome and one paced. We'd concede I'm sure (i mean it is Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani! ) but i think at Anfield especially we'd put them to the sword and they'd struggle to get any grip on the game.

It is the solid teams with good tacticians that i worry about. Zidane, Mourinho, Simeone and Allegri all know how to take the sting out of a frightening attack. I worry if we can find an answer for that. They are all masters of the one off game.

Barcelona, PSG, Bayern, Dortmund etc? Nah. We'd just outscore them.

3.) 08 Sep 2017 15:26:39
Well if you don't have a Xavi and Iniesta stop comparing your team to them. Liverpool have an identity of their own and let's go by it. Barcelona plays completely different to Liverpool and if any team has had any resemblance it's Arsenal. Now that's for the record mate.

Regarding excitement and optimism. Wasn't me the only one who wanted us to challenge the title and you lot were happy taking the 4th place ever rolling trophy for GOOD? And I was told to behave a realistic last season lol!

Our team can't defend! If this is something your can't accept it then it's your problem not mine!

4.) 08 Sep 2017 16:01:08
Mks is right. again. It is the master tacticians we need to watch. Most people would agree that bayern Munich are on whole a better team than athletic madrid. However in pre season we hammered Munich away but drew with athletic. I fancy us against city as they will come out an play. Last year utd played us well and Jose got the draw he set up for. I reckon this year jose's ego will get the better of him and he will try to win from the start. Hendo will think "this is interesting" and mane will get a brace.

5.) 08 Sep 2017 16:03:38
The fact that we did come 4th proves that it was a realistic target. As for this "our team can't defend" theory. There were 4 teams who conceded less than Liverpool last year so it clearly isn't as bad as some make out, including myself at times. Granted, it could be improved upon but there were a hell of a lot of teams that wish they had or defensive record in the league last season, including Everton and their top defenders.

6.) 08 Sep 2017 15:14:55
well ed it is easy to be realistic about other team players. for example you are not realistic when you think Gylfi and Rooney are world class and can get into top team when reality is different. who would buy siggurdosn from top 4 clubs. United? Spurs? ah he already failed there. Chelsea? maybe as Conte likes hardworking midfielder but opted for other options. City? pep would never buy that sort of player. neither champions league club would buy him, maybe for 20mill max. and you said Can is bad player once . 22 years old german international midfielder wanted by Juventus and likely to be first eleven player. Keane for you would walk into Liverpool team. In Keane i see slow old fashion defender, definitely good player but can't play high line and you will see that over the season. karius is lemon and picford is future England number one? goal he conceded against Hajduk was his mistake and he will have problems with well placed higher shots as he is not tall. everyone sees thinghs differently. you think calwin and lookman are great talents, you will see what talent is when Vlasic plays for your club.

{Ed025's Note - and there lies the problem with liverpool supporters mandzo!, a lot of you are very disparaging about other teams players but think your own are incredible and can do no wrong, other teams supporters see you as delusional and quite frankly its hard to disagree mate, a lot of it is just banter and i get that as im the reigning world champion, but humility as a supporter is a fine trait..

7.) 08 Sep 2017 15:15:04
With all due respect Ed025, being realistic is what holds teams like Everton and Spurs back.

Sometimes you have to put you head on the block, or even take a financial risk to take the next step. To do that you have to be optimistic.

I believe, that if the Liverpool players believe they are good enough, they can make waves at the top of the league and against anyone in the Champions league. Across 2 legs, the only teams i would not be confident against are Real Madrid, Man United, Juventus and Athletico Madrid. I think we can sweep anyone else aside by steam rolling them at Anfield. Those 4 will be very hard to beat home or away though which is when we need our defence to stay tight. Therein lies my concerns!

Maybe that does make me an optimist, but maybe that is why Liverpool play for a win away to Hoffenheim, instead of playing not to lose away to Hadjuk Split 😉

Never underestimate that confidence can be as useful as it can be dangerous.

{Ed025's Note - you do speak a lot of sense MK and optimism can be a fine thing when spoken in moderation, when its rammed down peoples throats though it becomes bigheadedness and that is when other fans lose respect, when you hear "we are going to win this and that" and "this is our year" its taken with a pinch of salt now, i do like liverpool supporters but if they toned it down a bit with the unrealistic expectations then im sure others would too...but it would make it harder for me to tear you to shreds so carry on please.. :)

8.) 08 Sep 2017 16:37:21
It is simply tradition to say its our year.

9.) 08 Sep 2017 16:29:56
See for me Ed025, we now have a team good enough to win any league or cup competition in world football. However, there are at least 3 other teams in England who can say the same. Being good enough to win trophies doesn't mean you will. At the end of the day, we are only in 4 competitions and one bad day can cost you in 3 of them. In the league if we struggle to beat a certain type of team again we can drop enough points to become also-rans.

So I'm happy to honestly say we can beat anyone on our day and that if everything went right for us, we could win a trophy. However reality tells me that there are a lot of teams who think the same and we can't all win.

{Ed025's Note - thats right MK, liverpool have one of if not the best midfields and attacking options in the EPL, the defence lets them down somewhat i feel so there will always be a doubt for me mate..

10.) 08 Sep 2017 16:45:57
Liverpool are one of five teams In with a shout of winning the league. It is that simple. We have had a decent start to the season but let's remember our results include a 1.0 win to palace and a 3 3 draw with watford. I don't think fans other than liverpool fans are taking us as serious title contenders but if we get a result against city that will undoubtedly change.

Liverpool have reason to be optimistic and so do Everton. Everton optimism is born out of other teams failures (spurs arsenal) coupled with some good signings (siggurson was the stand out player outside the top six, let's be honest, he is a fantastic player)
Liverpool optimism is more genuine. Before Christmas we had arguably the best team in the league and depth really cost us. Coutinio was injured and mane missing for large portions of season. Well we have been blistering already WITHOUT cout's and we have another super quick winger in salah. We have a couple of decent fbs breaking through and have added quality in midfield. We are definitely contenders.

It is this group of players first year in ucl and I'm not expecting too much. Of course, we are in it so we can win it but it's very unlikely. We will have to break down teams, something we struggled with last year. If we get to quarter finals then that would be a decent showing. We HAVE to qualify for ucl next year or our season will be a failure. Top four and I'll be pleased, top three very pleased.

{Ed025's Note - thats a great post superred, very fair and balanced mate..

11.) 08 Sep 2017 16:56:14
Liverpool defence is 50% different to the one that struggled at times last season. Milner and Clyne, for w/ e reason have been replaced by TAA, gomez, Robertson and moreno. They have also had another summer to gel together. I expect them to be much better this season.

12.) 08 Sep 2017 17:45:15
Thing is I'm massively over optimistic about our players but it's rare that I have a pop at opponents unless it's light hearted.

{Ed025's Note - and thats fair enough ron..

13.) 08 Sep 2017 19:31:52
Cheers ed025, it is easy to get carried away as football fans should. At the beginning of a new season fans should be optimistic and it's great to see. Both liverpool and Everton have improved so of course there is great optimism. I think liverpool will start well and I hope we can mantain the high intensity right through to may. We didn't last year, yes we lost mane pc and Hendo for large parts of the latter half of the season but perhaps that is due to the intensity of lfc game in part. I'm guessing, in general, our levels will be better this year as players bodies get used to klopps style and also because we simply have more numbers.

To flip the coin I think we will see Everton come stronger in the second half of the season as it will take some time for all the new faces at the club to gel.

Realistically both clubs have got to be aiming at European football again next season. Anything less will be failure. More so of course for liverpool.

{Ed025's Note - it would be nice if we could get back to the 80,s superred when we were the best 2 teams in the land, with liverpool 2nd of course..

14.) 08 Sep 2017 19:47:54
I'm the opposite, I sometimes feel I'm over critical of our players, not other teams.

I reckon it's because I'm an old git - 46. Grew up watching our sides in the 80's, I find it hard to see the likes of United over take us in league titles.

On a brighter note, I found one of my first LFC scarfs in the loft! red and white checks one side, yellow and red the other.1982.Delighted!

I had the yellow away kit too 😎.

15.) 08 Sep 2017 20:47:47
Cool nick! Lol ed25!

16.) 08 Sep 2017 20:49:03
In all honesty I don't think beating city will convince people we're title contenders as beating the top sides is not our issue. When we stop struggling against the also rans then and only then will we be considered contenders. That said I'm really looking forward to the season ahead. YNWA.



01 Sep 2017 13:47:29
I hope we sell Coutinho today. Tired of this nonsense of all of his sadness, grief, blah blah. He knows nothing of true hardship if he thinks what he is going through now is great anguish. Part of me wants to sell him. Part of me wants to let him rot in the reserves till he makes amends for what he's done. He's not fit to wear the shirt.

Regardless, I'll be glad when all this is over. Just ready to support the team again. Bring on Citeh.

I disagree. Although I want to see Coutinho go, it would be better for LFC to show that they are not some institution which gives a player a very lucrative 5 year contract and then he pisses all over it refusing to play because he wants his way.

No, screw him, he is not going to get his way and that might just be a lesson for the next player who decides to do the same thing to LFC.

The onus is on Coutinho to now clean up his act and it his duty to put on the red shirt again and give it his all while Liverpool are paying his wages.

If he does not want to adhere to his contract then he can go rot like Sakho.

{Ed002's Note - Who would they be showing this to?}

We need to let him play a blinder this season like Suarez did before he left. Sell him for lots of money in the summer, and in the mean time, we need to sound out replacements for him so that it's a smooth transaction next year.

Letting him "rot in the reserves" is an emotional action rather than logical and professional, and one which would not be best for Liverpool.

Ed002, I think it is fair to say that Coutinho has it all to lose if he now does not clean up his act should Liverpool refuse to let him go before the Spanish window closes.

That should be a lesson in itself to all other players that refuse to play for LFC in future while being payed a wage which will be able to feed a country in poverty. That should send out a message that players will no longer get their way.

Coutinho is between a rock and a hard place at the moment and he only has himself to blame.

{Ed002's Note - Players don't even think about such matters and any "messages" that Liverpool send out I am afraid Max.}

Selling without a replacement is dumb business and this is why fans should never run clubs. They are too emotionally charged hence, could cut their noses to spite their faces. I want him gone as well BUT I'm not ready to sell without a replacement. That is just getting screwed twice which is senseless.

Players simply don't have the emotional attachment to the clubs they play for that fans have for the club they support .
It s somewhat naive to expect the top players to stay at a club which hasn't won a major title in some time when there are more lucrative options and better chances for trophies.
It has been a strange window in the number of transfers which didn't materialise .
I'm unsure if clubs or players have come out of it "holding the power"
Fully expected Costa, VVD, Coutinho, Barkley, Sanchez, etc to move but
didn't materialise .

I think you meant signing Rooney ed025.

I think many on here are convinced by his talent ed. And considering what we were willing to pay had we acquired him this summer, the price we agreed for next summer looks like a steal! I think he's a good pickup, but I'm just going off what the eds have told me and the occasional video.

you watch a lot of RBL ed025? I can't personally say I've seen much of Keita but I'm buzzing that we've signed him. Is he that good?


{Ed025's Note - well i think he is Tj, i think you have got a cracker there and for me hes a cross between kante and iniesta, very intense and gets up and down the pitch all game but not only is he defensively sound he can link with the midfield and forwards and will score goals, i have to admit im very envious mate..

Why on earth would we wait to bid until after they have had an acceptable bid from somewhere else? This has to be one of the strangest thoughts ever.

Not me. Couts was shot and Salah just couldn't find the net. Ox should've been starting over Wijnaldum and then we can play Coutinho deeper IMO.

I wouldn't have bought Ox either Harry but it's hard to fall the lad a failed winger when he never gets games there. Especially considering he was pretty good against the Mancs when he came on. Give the guy a chance.

If you don't understand why we didn't take Sanchez (either renato or Alexis) then I imagine this problem pops up frequently for you mate lol.

That's interesting ed002. I knew of problems with Carlo and Bayern, and after ed001's comments about Guardiola being a control freak, it does seem a strange decision to replace him with a polar opposite manager like Carlo. I think if this Klopp situation were to turn ugly somehow, he would be a good shout. That being said, I hope we are a bit more patient with Klipperty; I don't like firing managers unless its absolutely necessary.

I take it you aren't too convinced on Ancelotti either ed002?


{Ed002's Note - Carlo Ancelotti is a really nice guy and a fine manager - but a very, very different type of manager to many.}
