Ed002, you've mentioned previously Mitrovic as a player that Liverpool should look at.

Is there any interest in him from us or anyone else in the prem?



{Ed002's Note - here is interest in Anderlecht's Aleksandar Mitrović from Borussia Monchengladbach, Manchester United, Swansea, Dortmund, Newcastle and Eintracht Frankfurt. The interest of Leicester and Bayern Munich seems to have gone, but Arsenal may just look again at the player - depending on which direction they wish to go given their first choice as opted to moved elsewhere. The interest from Manchester United is recent. Newcastle are likely not an option - perhaps it will become clear when the managerial role is resolved. Probably now of reach of Swansea and Frankfurt.}

1.) 03 Jun 2015 19:32:01
Would he be a player that we would potentially look at as an option Ed?
Sorry for the vague question

{Ed002's Note - It is what I have said.}



27 Jan 2015 15:17:05
Our current right back situation is vastly over staffed in my opinion, with; Manquillo, Johnson, Flanno and McLaughlin.

I never understood why Rodgers brought in Manquillo in the first place, but are we planning on keeping him for the full two years?

Does anybody know if Flanno is going to be offered a new contract?

And somebody please tell me that Johnson is going to turn down this new contract offer?! If he is offered enough to stay with us and Flanno isn't offered a new contract, Rodgers will have officially lost his marbles, and you lot may argue but for this would actually be the final straw with Rodgers for me, as it demonstrates just how poorly our youngsters have been managed and I think it would speak volumes to others in the academy that no matter how hard you worked to force your way into the team (Flanno), you still won't get given the chance.

Also, I'm sure the Eds will agree, but really enjoying how quiet this January is



{Ed002's Note - As far as I know the plan is to keep Manquillo for the two years - unless his club want him back after a year.}

1.) 27 Jan 2015 20:38:08
why keeping Manquillo? One of our worst signings and at least we can send him back to his club

{Ed002's Note - For a price.}

2.) 28 Jan 2015 13:02:43
Manquillo, one of our worst signings? Eh?



09 Nov 2014 13:09:31
Eds, really appreciating your the time and effort that you're putting in to answering everyone's questions and dealing with the mopes who are using the site as a place to vent after each poor performance.

Personally I don't think we need to buy anyone in January. We bought too many players in the summer for far too much money when we had youngsters who would have done equally as well and probably even better.

January should definitely be a selling window in order to trim our overstaffed squad. Eds, do you know of any players which will likely be sold come January?

Unfortunately I have a feeling it'll be the wrong players.



{Ed001's Note - Sakho and Balotelli.}

1.) Edo1 how come these 2? would that still be true if Rodgers is gone?

{Ed001's Note - how on earth could I know what another manager would want before I even know who it is? Those two because Rodgers doesn't rate either, but that doesn't mean they would stay if he went.}

2.) How about Borini and Suso?

{Ed002's Note - I would think Suso will be looking to sign a pre-contract in January, that would suit him financially. I would think Borini is (a) priced out of a January move and (b) happy to wait until the summer. Balotelli has been offered to a number of clubs in England (3 I am aware of) and some in Italy (again 3 I am aware of). A move will hinge on the money, not just for the transfer, and that may be a problem. Kirikou would likely welcome a move to get first team football. Perhaps the summer will be an option for a move.}

3.) Will the committee set up also be scrapped ED? Those two players mentioned were never going to fit in the system BR prefers and they aren't the only ones. Money down the drain.

{Ed002's Note - You will need to wait and see what the way forward is/ Critical right now is an evaluation and the formulation of a plan.}

4.) Which English sides was mario offered to?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle.}

5.) Are LFC likely to make any money off Balotelli sale?

And why get rid of him after only half a season?

{Ed002's Note - There is no guarantee he will go. And if he does Liverpool will not be making any money out of a sale.}

6.) Eds, is it possible he could go before he let's a good player in sakho especially go? Because for me sakho is our best defender. Just because he fell out with him, is this what happens with every player he falls out with?

{Ed002's Note - He is 4th choice.}

7.) 10 Nov 2014 06:37:32
Ed002 can u say witch clubs for Mario?

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

Ed001, you said yesterday that we're looking for someone for the midfield.

There has been a lot of strong speculation over Will Hughes and Macca thinking that we're still after Alonso, but who do you think we will try and get in January? {Ed001's Note - I believe we are intending to get someone with more power and pace for central midfield. The bit of bite we have been lacking (though in my opinion we should have just got Medel before Cardiff last summer), which is why I would not expect it to be Alonso. I also don't see Will Hughes in that category, so I am not expecting him, or at least not just him. While I would not be of the opinion he is the player I would want, I believe there is some interest in Diame, as a cheap option, so it is possible we move for him. Other than that, I am not sure who is likely right now, January is not a good time to buy.}


1.) Player like Ramirez would be good, are we still after MATIC? {Ed002's Note - Try the search function.}

2.) Ed I get what your saying but Medel is more trouble than he's worth. I think Diame would be a good buy and we could offer Allen on loan so that West Ham could use that money for an attacker.

3.) M'vila ed? was in the stands on saturday. {Ed002's Note - As a guest of Kirikou.}

4.) I keep hearing from the EDs that January 'isn't a good time to buy' but over the last few years, we've done some great business in January- Suarez, Coutinho, Sturridge. arguably our 3 best players and all of them made an instant impact. That would suggest we perform very well in the winter window. Is there any reason why the EDs think it's not a good time? {Ed002's Note - It is the middle of the season and teams do not want to be disrupted by sales.}

5.) Alonso has signed a new long term contract at RM, so won't be coming back here any time soon, if ever! {Ed001's Note - Haych, sorry I didn't deal with your reply so didn't spot your comment, but it is absolute lies. He is no trouble whatsoever! He works his backside off in training and plays where ever he is asked to play with no moans or whines. If you are referring to red cards, he is nothing like as bad as made out.}

6.) If only Kolo could convince his brother to sign as well

7.) Ed001, any chance of Fernando? From what i've seen he's a beast in midfield {Ed001's Note - he is certainly one that has been put forward and looked at, but I believe the asking price was ridiculous. I was told that Porto were asking for 30m+.}

8.) Eds001 what's your views on nzonzi, my opinion is he would also be a good cheap option with proven prem experience? {Ed001's Note - he is ok, just doesn't do enough for me, too prone to silly bookings, they never seem to be a case of taking one for the team, always down to a lack of discipline on his part.}

Just been in a bar in Alderley Edge and saw Didi Hamann in there.

Whilst I didn't pluck up the courage to go over and pester him. I did hear him outside talking to a friend saying a bid for LS from Madrid is imminent.

Dont know how reliable he is at all but just thought i'd pass on the message.



1.) He was on LFC TV lst night saying we should enquire about Rooney. Must have been on the juice since then.

2.) Is didi connected to Madrid because I don't see how he would know this

3.) I agree Challo, as I say I am merely passing on what I overheard.

He will probably have meant that that is what he is expecting and I just caught the back end on the conversation

4.) 08 Aug 2013 21:34:07
This is not as unbelievable as the repliers make it sound. Didi still has links with Liverpool, hence his time spent on LFC website after yesterdays game and so on. It is not unthinkable that he would know information, he doesn't need links to Madrid in the slightest, just to Liverpool.
A while back a friend of mine when to a sportsmans dinner where Jan Molby was the guest speaker, at this speech he told those in the room to put their mortgages on Roy Hodgson taking over at Liverpool. Needless to say it happened.
The 'inside' footballing world knows a lot more about the goings on, its like mates chatting at work about stuff they've heard from management, which happens in everyday working life. I know an up an coming player from a big Lancashire club that knows a fair bit about the goings on at his club well before it ever hits the papers, just not anything about other clubs.

Anfield Andy

5.) ToonRed, any whispers, innnuendos or anything we hear, should always be passed on. It may not always end up being fact but at least you've let the rest of us know what you heard. Good on you

keep em coming!

6.) Cheers Tel 1949

7.) Didi is one of the least informed people around. He is often seen around frodsham/helsby etc too. He's always up for a chat with fans which is brilliant, but he knows no inside information most of it is opinion. If Madrid do put in a bid it's unsurprising given or the past 2 months they have been linked.

8.) These are the posts that should be on this site, not the usual ask the Ed's fest its become but honest believable(ish) rumors. Good on ya amigo. Which pub?

9.) It was in The Bubble Room in Alderley Edge

10.) I worked in a Pub in Formby where Howard Kendle was our 1st customer every day, he told me to put a bet on a young blue captaining England one day, put £5 on it for a laugh ( said in 10 years time) Won nearly £800 when Rooney led out the national team against san marino.

Happy New Year to you all.

I have a player sighting for you (I'll upload the photo today), not a new player but a slightly forgotten man, Danny Ings.

My uncle, who is the captain of the boat that Danny and his miussus spent New Year on, sent the photo to me yesterday.

My uncle said he was a very charming and polite lad and was waxing lyrical about Klopp and the backroom staff have been so supportive during his injury. Plus one reason why their fitness has improved so much is down to the new diet that they've got them all on.

He says he hopes to be back before the end of the season. I asked about any gossip within the club but my uncle is yet to get back to me on that.

Either way, nice to hear that morale in the dressing room is high.



1.) 05 Jan 2017 10:37:32
Good to hear thanks mate.



17 Oct 2016 12:32:42
Trying to find 3 tickets for the Sunderland game on 26th Nov.

Anyone know any trustworthy sites to get them?




02 Oct 2016 11:59:17
First time on since the game yesterday to read Ed's match review as I missed the real thing.

Have I missed something here?! Did we not get points against a team who are fighting and we're now second in the league?!

Some of the chat is embarrassing!

I'm glad we got a bit of a scrappy win yesterday, shows we can do it as well as being the Harlem globetrotters. Ed's for everyone's sake, when we next lose a game, I'd suspend the site.


1.) 02 Oct 2016 13:14:58
Nicely put, finally somebody not moaning about it, getting them 3 points yesterday was massive for us. Difficult first half yes, means nothing, we came back out and did the job, be happy we have 3 points.

If we was to win for an example the next 3 games and then lose one, we'd still have negativity.

Overall, we're playin fantastic, results are proving it, people might say it should've been an easy ggame for us, them people have no idea what they're talking about. Swansea really needed a result yesterday, which is why they did so well in the first half. credit to them but in the end we won, it shows how strong we are under pressure, this is something that's been a problem for some time now. Klopps addressed it and we're doing just fine, I can't be any happier! Bring on utd.

2.) 02 Oct 2016 13:28:22
Totally agree Toon, the expectation is from some on here is that the other team are never allowed to have a sniff of a goal or out play us for any period of time whatsoever. The reality is the league is competitive, we're not going to be at our best every single game and we need to be able to grind out wins despite those factors. That's exactly what we did. Great reaction from the team!



30 Sep 2016 13:03:16
Ed, is Alexander Arnold highly rated and expected to be in and around the first team in the near future?



{Ed001's Note - he is excepted to push for a squad place at least.}

1.) 30 Sep 2016 14:27:16
Ed if clyne gets injured . May he get a chance or Milner to rb.

2.) 30 Sep 2016 14:47:43
He's good enough that we don't need to buy someone to cover clyne. Clyne injured throw Alex in.

3.) 30 Sep 2016 14:27:16
Ed if clyne gets injured . May he get a chance or Milner to rb.

{Ed001's Note - it could be a possibility. Hard to say as it really depends on the opponents and how so many others are doing at the time.}



22 Aug 2016 21:37:17
How does everyone feel about Lucas at CB? I thought he played very well there when called upon last year.



1.) 22 Aug 2016 22:01:04
Good point he did and got his head on most balls crossed into the box.

2.) 22 Aug 2016 22:07:35
Square peg round hole. Good for cover but not a regular CB for me. We need Sakho back asap, his partnership with lovren towards the end of last season looked promising.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 22:50:08
If Lucas played in a Libero position based on 3-5-2 then yeah I could see him there.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 22:51:16
Agreed Red Reaper, just go out and find a permanent solution in the transfer market.

5.) 22 Aug 2016 23:10:17
heard sakho going out on loan? probably come from a bluenose or twitter but did hear that.

6.) 23 Aug 2016 00:04:32
Pretty sure we have enough centre backs, unless we need to field a team of them like we seem to do with midfielders.

7.) 23 Aug 2016 21:45:34
He'll get found out, that's a big no for me.

That doesn't sound good Ed?


{Ed001's Note - I don't understand what you mean? A player no one thinks is good enough will be moved on if possible, what is there to not sound good about it?}

Hjikle. Because it's a rumour .

Personally I miss the days of the crazy rumours that were the reason for this site.

Pele arriving in his knickers hand in hand with Ken Aguero at Liverpool airport ready to buy the club - brilliant!

Where would we be able to find these Madrid plans Ed?



{Ed002's Note - The Real Madrid page would make more sense. So, just to clear this up - Marco Reus, Lucas Silva, Thomas Muller and David Alaba remain the targets for Real Madrid after agreement has been reached with Marco Asensio. Additional interest in Chelsea's Ramires is the balance if Lucas Silva signs with Real Madrid but there remains the chance he could move to Chelsea with Ramires heading elsewhere. Aguero remains a target but Thomas Muller looks more achievable. It is likely Martin Odegaard will also join recently arrived Mink Peeters in the U19s. Out will go Benzema, Khedira, Isco and, if they can move him on, Bale.}

When you say, "from what I can find out" Ed, are those the noises coming from within the club?

Also, I was just wondering, what the players feelings towards Brendan at the moment? I'm sure they thought he was brilliant last season, however as cracks have appeared, has the general attitude changed?



{Ed001's Note - yes, that is the noises I am getting, which is why I kept bringing his name into the convo in recent weeks.

It depends on the players, a lot of them are disillusioned with him and are fed up of not getting a look in, others love him for standing by them. That is all most players care about. The ones on the outside are growing though, as he is alienating more of them, along with the club's form being poor, so no one on the outside can accept being frozen out.}

Ed, for a wage cap on youngsters to be successful surely all clubs would have to sign up to it? Or else we risk agents getting in the ears of youngsters to try and find a better deal elsewhere.


{Ed001's Note - yes, that is what is being worked towards.}

Ed, you think the lack of drive in youngsters comes from them thinking they've 'made it' before they really have due to high wages so early in their career?

Thank you for all your hard work!


{Ed001's Note - yes, that is why the club want to put a cap on wages for youngsters.}

Well chosen specific words Ed.

Depending on the deal that can be struck I assume visas and work permits could be affected?


{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but I have dealt with that before - probably searching "Brexit" would get a hit.}
