Very rarely a poster of rumours, usually just ask questions, but I'm currently standing next to Peter Moore in Euston station.

He could be based down here of course, but if not, is something imminent?


1.) 16 Jun 2017 21:33:40
We've had an office in central London since 2014.

2.) 16 Jun 2017 23:57:55
So didn't you quiz him?

3.) 17 Jun 2017 15:40:05
Toon, you got to work on your rumours mate, as that was awful!



03 Jun 2015 15:14:19
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.}



24 Nov 2013 17:36:31
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.}

Thoughts are with you Ed, very sad news. YNWA.


{Ed001's Note - thank you very much TR.}



30 Dec 2017 13:16:50
Shout out to Macca, you were correct in the end about VVD.

Don’t listen to the abuse, myself and a lot of others still hang off yours and the Ed's every word.




12 Sep 2017 10:12:43
Eds, just to change things up a bit, last season we saw the emergence of the likes of; Mbappe, Mahmoud Dahoud, Asensio, Werner, Lemar, Tielemans, Dolberg to name but a few.

Many of the aforementioned were relatively unheard of this time last year.

Who do you think in your opinion we could see the emergence of across Europe this season?


{Ed002's Note - It is very difficult to make such predictions but someone in the know suggests it is worth keeping an eye out for Josip Brekalo (who nearly ended up at Everton a while back), Atakan Akkaynak (who could well end up in the Premier League next year), Adrien Bongiovanni (could end up being on the fringes this year, still one to look out for in the future) and, particularly, Steven Bergwijn.}

1.) 12 Sep 2017 10:58:08
Some cracking names there Ed!

For me personally, and mine are more British based, i think Josh Onomah, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman, Carter-Vickers, Leko, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ben Chilwell, Rob Holding, Matty James, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Lewis Cook could be ones to watch. I can see them all becoming key players this season at their respectitive clubs. I personally think Calvert-Lewin is the absolute pick of the bunch but they are all great young players. Lewin could be a Dele Alli like find from Everton though.

Last season we saw the likes of Alli, Rashford, Abraham, Sessegnon, Burke, Pickford etc become important players for their teams and i expect it to be even better this season for young talent in Britain.

Solanke and Woodburn are also worth keeping on eye on from an LFC perspective but i think they are still a season away at least from being considered key players.

2.) 12 Sep 2017 11:05:07
Atakan Akkaynak From Bayer Leverkusen.

3.) 12 Sep 2017 11:09:58
Really question that Toon. I had to google each and every one of the names though, but I remembered reading the name Akkaynak in the Chelsea page. Maybe Chelsea he will end up next year then.

One of the names is a Monaco player. Last time Monaco used to be a very big spender, now they seems to be like a really good club producing lots of young expensive talents.

4.) 12 Sep 2017 12:19:10
Malang Sarr looks like a beast, can't understand why he is not beeing hyped up more.

{Ed002's Note - There is a lot of interest in him.}

5.) 12 Sep 2017 13:24:33
Sarr and Issa Diop are good young players.



01 Sep 2017 16:49:06
Eds, Macca thank you so much for everything over the summer; providing information and most of all putting up with the bipolar fans! I wouldn't know what to do/ believe without this site.

Ed001, please may I make a request for you to watch the odd RBL and Monaco game to give us your two cents on Keita and Lemar. Not a full player profile as I know they take a lot of time for you, just enough to give you an opinion and what we can expect from Keita.

I ask about Lemar too, as Klopp seems to have found his target to replace Coutinho and as we've seen over the summer, once he's found his target, he doesn't want an alternative.

If he does proceed with Lemar, I only hope he's had a slap on the wrists and a deal can be reached legally with Monaco.

Let's enjoy this season together boys, we're already playing some great footy!



{Ed001's Note - I will be doing so as I have been asked to do player profiles on them both.}



25 Aug 2017 07:30:16
Is Phil still ill?


1.) 25 Aug 2017 07:37:38
Until at least the end of the transfer window, yes.

2.) 25 Aug 2017 07:44:41
Phill is ill and Zed is dead.

3.) 25 Aug 2017 08:15:43
Give up on this lads. Everyone knows what is going on. He is doing his best to get what has clearly been his dream move for a while.

If he doesn't get it which I hope he doesn't it will do no good whatsoever for fans to start making things worse for him. He is going to feel great disappointment and embarrassment I imagine and I believe as fans we can help him reintegrate quicker with huge support. Rather than cascading him and deepening hurt feelings. It will help no one. Certainly not Phil, certainly not liverpool fc and not even yourself as I'm sure like me you are hoping to see coutinho firing us to titles.

4.) 25 Aug 2017 08:36:57
"Who's Zed? "

"Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead. "

5.) 25 Aug 2017 08:58:10
Does his mam ring in sick for him like in school?

6.) 25 Aug 2017 08:59:07
Great post, Davey. There is no point making a bad situation worse. He will be distraught to not get his move (not really our fault as Barcelona was trying to screw us with that pathetic bid) . Suarez did way worse than this and we still welcomed him back after he was appropriately dealt with, in-house. We should treat him like a family member who crossed us. We are mad and disappointed with one arm and then, use the other arm to welcome him cos in the end, he is ours.

7.) 25 Aug 2017 11:37:03
Yeah I am still in 😅.

8.) 25 Aug 2017 17:38:44
He has become a challenge to medical science! They are still trying to find more about the virus! I hope he comes back that front 4 of Phil, Bobby, Mane and Salah would probably win us the league!

The only thing I can think of is that we’re focussing on trying to get Keita in now and then Lemar in the summer. Who knows?!

Would be gutted if this is an opportunity missed though.

Throw in Sakho and/ or Moreno and/ or Markovic to Monaco plus cash for Mendy?

Before anyone says, I know this isn't FM and am only half joking but does seem to be some talk of adding a player to deals this morning to reduce the cash cost.

Thanks Ed001! These are the kind of posts we all live off.

Have you heard anything on Brandt or Moussa Dembele?

Sorry, at the risk of sounding thick, are Fulham unlikely to sell Sessegnon to us due to what happened with the kid from Stoke?

I'd love to get him personally, but certainly wouldn't be annoyed with either Gaya or Pereira.


{Ed001's Note - Brandt, I have nothing to add over and above what Ed002 has already said. Dembele looks to be one we don't go for due to his demands over first team football. He has the potential to be brilliant, but he has had a fair few indifferent games of late. I doubt it will be us willing to give him assurances, even if we did, I am not so sure they would be enough for him.

Partially that is a problem, but it is also our actions in the past with regards to transfers. We need to rebuild some bridges there, as the club have not yet forgiven us for the tapping up of Dempsey.

I really like Gaya, don't know why, but each time I see him he looks too good for that Valencia side. It is hard to tell though, as the whole team there is shambolic at times.}

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?}

So Klopp should change or he shouldn’t, Ed? Surely a change would be a knee jerk reaction.


{Ed002's Note - No, it does not require a knee-jerk reaction to change. Taking on appropriate coaching staff who can improve the squad and ultimately the performances might be a knee-jerk reaction to you but to me it is simply adapting to changing circumstances.}

Kind of player who could be a replacement/ upgrade on Gini. He’s been poor this season and I’m sure it won’t have gone unnoticed.

“Results are entirely irrelevant to his role” . interesting.


{Ed001's Note - if he wins everything but fails to produce a single player for the first team, then he has failed miserably. If he brings through regular players but wins nothing, then he will have succeeded brilliantly. That is the only thing that matters at that level and he would do well to remember it.}

Quite depressing when you say it like that, Ed. I know Couts has been throwing a strop all season and Can wants out for different reasons. However, one is currently world class and I believe the other will one day join the other.

Will the replacements hit the ground running or be the right pick?

One day I’d love a team of scousers who’d play out of their skin and up the standard so we could keep hold of them instead of having to deal with these prima donnas every other year.
