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.}

Does anyone know how Allan got on at Hertha last season?



1.) 21 Jun 2017 12:11:05
Klopp seems to really rate him but he can't get a visa to come to the UK I think.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 12:19:09
Thanks, James. But does anyone know how well he played at Hertha . ?

3.) 21 Jun 2017 13:12:39
He had 15 apps for a total of 791 min. He was never really someone for the Starting 11.

Also Hertha said: "We would try to keep him here but there has to be the sporting need for him" (Im not sure, if i translated that correct) Also he went to the U20 Southamerican Cup or whatever it is called although Hertha adviced him not to.

So to summ it up: He has shown potential but it wasnt enough to be a starter.



07 Jun 2017 19:29:53
Macca, don't listen to the morons out in full force tonight. They're pissed off, we all are.

You and the Eds are our most reliable sources for news!

The club cocked up and will hopefully be lesson finally learnt. We all move on.

Cheers mate.


{Ed025's Note - dead righ toon..

1.) 07 Jun 2017 20:10:10
This is nothing to do with Macca or any of the eds. This is rank incompetency that would make Southern Trains embarrassed.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 20:19:14
To my knowledge, Macca does not handle transfers at LFC even to, I wish he did so those slating him really need to behave otherwise they will get the business from the rest of us as we will defend him tooth and nail.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 20:06:29
Completely agree.

The announcement indicates that Macca was completely correct and frank in what he said - deal done with player and agent, need to agree fee with club.

No one would assume we'd be so daft as to not ensure the club were aware of what was going on.

Please stick with us Macca!



06 Jun 2017 11:47:00
Ed, I thought it was VVD's representative who approached us? Hence why we went from not being interested to interested .


{Ed001's Note - doesn't matter. Once they do that we should have sought Saints' permission to talk to him. Clearly Saints believe that never happened. The issue is whether or not LFC believed the approach was made with Soton's blessing or not. I was under the impression that we thought they had authorised the approach. In which case why did no one make sure and get proof that they knew?}

1.) 06 Jun 2017 12:00:30
Ok, thanks Ed. Sounds like we'll never learn.

Does this put the VVD deal in jeopardy? And others for that matter?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 06 Jun 2017 12:12:23



04 Jun 2017 11:07:40
I'd rather we used the VVD money on Mendy personally.

Understand what Ed means about not having alternatives, we're only interested because he's desperate to play for Klopp and we were approached.


1.) 04 Jun 2017 11:14:42
Totally agree but we ballsed that up as well. Will end up with robertson or similar quality, or msy even rnd up with milner playing a second season there.

2.) 04 Jun 2017 11:30:42
I'd rather Milner playing there than Robertson.

3.) 04 Jun 2017 11:16:13
Mandy will end up at City as well.

4.) 04 Jun 2017 11:47:53
Don't tell Barry Manilow.

{Ed025's Note - love it ron..

5.) 04 Jun 2017 12:52:44
hahahah nice one ron.



28 Feb 2017 10:50:23
Ed001, based on your analysis of the best LB's in the world. Would you go all out for Tierney?

And do you agree with Ed002 that La Manga should have focussed more on rest than gruelling training?

Cheers mate.


{Ed001's Note - Tierney yes, La Managa definitely not. Two weeks of rest would have left them sluggish, slow and lacking in fitness. We weren't beaten because of a training camp.}

1.) 28 Feb 2017 11:16:38
Ok. Would Tierney be ready for the first team? Are we interested in him?

{Ed001's Note - yes, yes, but so is everyone in Europe.}

2.) 28 Feb 2017 13:14:50
So Ed, are you saying that last night we weren't slow, sluggish and lacking in fitness.

{Ed001's Note - yep. Leicester made us look it because they were so up for it, the players were certainly none of those things. Sorry but there were signs of us not having played for two weeks, passing off etc, but no signs of tiredness. There were lots of players getting in each others way, making the wrong runs, but they were making the runs. If they had rested they would have been far worse. This was far more about a bunch of backstabbing *censored* who won the title last season through hard work, working even harder than they did last season to try and prove a point. The only point proved was that they are backstabbing *censored* who downed tools on Ranieri and were fully capable of doing far better than they have been all season, they just couldn't be arsed because they have got too big for their boots.}

3.) 28 Feb 2017 14:40:17
Yep couldn't agree more ed001, I was going to write a similar post of how despite the disappointing result for us the most disappointing thing about that game is seeing leister remember how to play football again immediately after forcing out a manager who won them the most improbable league title in history, no reason why they shouldn't be top 4 now when they can pull performances like that out the bag.
Really hope that ungrateful bunch get relegated now.

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?}

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.}

We're lucky to have Macca, he and the Eds are the most reliable sources we have.

The club got this one wrong with their behaviour, not Macca!
