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.}

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!



22 Aug 2017 14:10:51
Seen reports of Dele Alli changing his agent in an attempt to get a big money move next summer, could be entirely BS.

However, if there is an element of truth, I would focus on speaking to Daniel Levy to work out a deal for Alli over the next 10 months.

He is an LFC fan and have the capacity to pay bigger wages.


1.) 22 Aug 2017 14:33:58
Klopp would tell Our transfer team to get us Deli Ali and they would end up buying a deli sandwich from an alley shop.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 14:40:08
He is not a playmaker and unless you have a plan to bench Firmino for Ali this makes no sense to me! Yes he has score goals but then many scores goals! He plays behind a main striker and we have no such system in place at Liverpool. If your intention is to find some one to replace Coutinho then he has to be a PLAYMAKER! I repeat a PLAYMAKER!

3.) 22 Aug 2017 15:05:05
He's perfect for the attacking midfield role that Lallana plays and Coutinho may play if he stays. Lallana is not getting any younger though and Coutinho may yet go next summer if Barcelona come calling again - I'd pay up for Dele Alli every time, reminds me a bit of a young Gerard.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 15:15:09
We can't defend if you think Dele Alli wouldn't get in our team then you are delusional. And for the record capitals don't emphasize your point they just make you seem really aggressive!

5.) 22 Aug 2017 16:00:29
No Jayden you have it all wrong; our transfer team would tell Klopp they were going to try and sign Dele Alli, and Klopp would meet him for lunch in a deli shop off a back alley before we had permission to talk to him, thus ruining the deal.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 16:20:55
Jayden aren't you being a little ray of sunshine today. Do you have a better suggestion?

7.) 22 Aug 2017 16:14:01

Is that what you made out from my post! Just like the club don't need a STRIKER we don't need Alli atm unless as someone suggested above you move out Lallans and bench Firmino for his life.

The club need a replacement for Coutinho and Ali is no playmaker by any stretch. Ask any Spurs fan! Lot of players would get into our team doesn't mean you buy all those!

It is like buying Gateth Bale coz you need a replacement for Luka Modric!

8.) 22 Aug 2017 16:14:13
Erm he says he wants to move to a big club, right now we're competing with Spurs to be also rans. I'd guess he is thinking more like Madrid and Barcelona than Cheshire.

9.) 22 Aug 2017 17:32:26
Toonred what are you on about. My comment was a joke. I'm guessing banter isn't allowed on the banter page in your eyes.

10.) 22 Aug 2017 18:06:44
We can't defend

Why do we need a replacement for Coutinho? He's not going anywhere.
Why would Dele Alli replace Firmino? Firmino plays primarily as a striker.
Why pidgeon hole players into set positions, Dele Alli could play anywhere.
What's wrong with adding more quality to the squad, our squad is woefully short on quality, if adding a quality player means a current starter moves to the bench so be it.
I'm not saying we are going to buy him but your logic is like saying we don't need Neuer because we have Mignolet!



22 Aug 2017 07:30:07
Ed002, you confirmed the other night (several times) that LFC did approach Nice about Jean Michael Seri.

What was Nice's response? I know he's now likely to go to Barcelona but I'm just interested.



{Ed002's Note - That he is available.}

1.) 22 Aug 2017 09:09:56
So we make an approach they say he is available so we take it to the next level and do nothing as per usual. Not to worry though the transfer window hasn't closed yet and we're bound to make loads of top class signings in the next 8 days.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 09:30:55
Jayden, we did plenty with it, we 'accidentally' forwarded on the fax from Nice saying he was available to Barcelona hoping to convince them to go for him instead, it worked! Crisis averted ;)

3.) 22 Aug 2017 09:38:40
Liverpool are told that Seri is unavailable, yet have not followed through with an offer.

People, I think this is a big clue that Macca is right about Liverpool going in again for Keita.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 09:49:42
Woops, I meant to say available, not unavailable!

5.) 22 Aug 2017 09:55:21
I think Seri may have been a replacement for Coutinho, i originally thought he was a Keita alternative but think eds confirmed its if coutinho was to leave.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 09:59:32
This could be a ploy to nudge Liverpool to allow Coutinho to leave, but there's rumours Barcelona are looking to Naby Keita now. Could be mischief making by Barcelona trying to get you to sell Coutinho or is it genuine interest?

7.) 22 Aug 2017 10:36:25
More to the point what is that avatar all about Sydney?

8.) 22 Aug 2017 09:33:49

Ed002's Note - If Keita arrives and Coutinho stays Liverpool has no use for him.

9.) 22 Aug 2017 09:48:22
Why approach Nice in the first place then.

{Ed002's Note - To find out if the player is available. Barcelona has done the same.}

10.) 22 Aug 2017 16:46:18
Sorry eds the question was rhetorical and in reply to the he was a replacement for Coutinho comment. Why would we enquire about a replacement for a player we apparently have no intention of selling.

{Ed002's Note - You don't think the club should make any provisions then? The entire transfer process seems to be something many of you can't grasp at all. You secret messages in everything, you think there is something special about Liverpool players etc..}

11.) 22 Aug 2017 17:29:23
Sorry eds What do you mean by you secret messages in everything?
I think you've taken my comment the wrong way eds I wasn't being critical or moaning that we had approached the club. My comment was just in reply to Tia 19's comment.

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.}

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.}

“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.

Ed001 and MK I’m really enjoying your recent articles, very insightful and provides something entirely different to what is currently being written in the rags.

With the expected outgoings of Can and Couts and confirmed incoming of Keita next summer. Who would your ideal midfield three be in line with current squad and realistic targets and which role would they play? Obviously each game might suggest a bit of rotation it might not be as straight forward as just three names and three roles.


{Ed001's Note - I would bring in a holding mid to play behind Henderson and Keita.}

I bet Carra would be a good person to bring leadership out in people.

Not to necessarily coach, just to inspire the youngsters and teach them to communicate to each other, organise themselves and figure out situations for themselves.
