Ed002 are you aware of Juve have any interest in Salah please?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach at this time but they are aware that they will need to replace Dybala.}

1.) 13 Feb 2019 10:13:04
would they be interested in swapping Dybala ed? Or he is bound to another club?
on another note do you think this summer would be one of the most frantic summer window? with almost every big club from top 4 leagues in dire need of players.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any suggestion to exchange Dybala nor any interest in him from Liverpool, but there is from elsewhere. I am sure they would consider such a proposal.}

2.) 13 Feb 2019 10:19:39
Hi Eds where is Dybala likely destination?

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages.}

3.) 13 Feb 2019 10:47:04
Cheers Ed, I was hoping not.

4.) 13 Feb 2019 11:23:31
Dybala is being looked at by Madrid, be interesting to see if they go for Hazard instead or even both?

5.) 13 Feb 2019 22:06:51
Good player Dybala 👍.



24 Jan 2019 17:39:47
Good evening Ed's

Appreciate the summer is a long way off, do you think there is a chance we might push to try and sign Werner in the Summer, especially if Sturridge&Origi are set to move on. I'm aware you posted a while ago on the garbage the kid from Manchester and what he said but do you think TW is a genuin target that Klopp likes or would you categorically rule him out?


{Ed002's Note - I would not rule him out but Werner would want to be a starter and that is hard to see. My expectation remains that if Bayern Munich can convince themselves his issue over his ears can be managed then they will push for him.}

1.) 24 Jan 2019 18:44:13
What's wrong with his ears.

{Ed002's Note - He falls over if it gets noisy.}

2.) 24 Jan 2019 18:51:56
No good at Anfield then!

{Ed002's Note - He wears ear plugs during games.}

3.) 24 Jan 2019 18:55:55
Salah does that too ;-) City players might do but there’s never enough fans at the emptyhad to test that theory :-D.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 19:30:57
Well at least there's no chance Werner will fall over in the away games then.

5.) 24 Jan 2019 19:33:31
He came of in a game before because it was to loud and giving him a head ache for those who don't get ed002s joke.

{Ed002's Note - You think it is a joke? It is why Real Madrid dropped their interest.}

6.) 24 Jan 2019 21:59:36
That is so strange, it's like Balotelli being allergic to Grass. Lol.

{Ed025's Note - but balotelli now smokes astroturf..

7.) 24 Jan 2019 23:44:33
Thank you for your detailed reply Ed, much appreciated.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 03:24:46
Reminds of Royce White, ex-NBA. He had a crippling fear of flight and couldn't cope on away games so it ruined his once promising career.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 11:20:03
Sorry guys. don't rate him . looks slow to me and plain . Brewster should be given a chance when back from injury. that kid has talent . mbabbe number 2 . why waste 40-60mil when we have a star already.

{Ed001's Note - slow? Do you actually know who he is? Werner's main strength is he is lightning quick.}

10.) 25 Jan 2019 01:20:12
ED02 just a curios question based on this thread; do refrees make a comcesiom for him in the event he does not hear the whistle and keeps on playing, as there are times when players get a yrllow card not realising the whistle has been blown.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

11.) 25 Jan 2019 09:35:01
I'm not surprised ed002 doesn't look good on a owl c. v.

12.) 25 Jan 2019 17:44:24
Dennis Bergkamp had a fear of flying too Amerigo. Always travelled by land or sea for away games.

13.) 25 Jan 2019 17:48:28
Does he actually dislike loud noisey staidiums? 😳.

{Ed001's Note - the noise gave him vertigo so he has had to get ear plugs to cope. Not so much dislike as it makes him ill. He is not the first sportsperson to have this problem.}

14.) 26 Jan 2019 00:04:57
Well fair enough if it’s an actual medical condition! I just thought he couldn’t concentrate! I wonder if it affects him hearing his teammates?



11 Jan 2019 09:31:57
Hi Ed's

Is there a chance Moreno will leave this window?


{Ed001's Note - unlikely, the club have put a new contract offer on the table for him, though I think he will choose to leave.}

1.) 11 Jan 2019 09:49:53
Cheers mate, he has been talking about all of his offers he has and said he won’t sign new contract, or st least that’s what I’ve read lol. Is it we won’t let him leave as we have little cover?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 11 Jan 2019 11:34:28
I don’t know if you agree Ed but I think he would he more or a reliability than one of the reserves. At least they would be committed to tackling and concentrate!

{Ed001's Note - I would happily let him leave, he is a nice enough lad but lacks a brain.}

3.) 11 Jan 2019 11:39:07
What's the business/ sporting sense in offering him a new contract?
He can't leave on loan or be sold, or that would've happened over the past couple of seasons. And he isn't good enough to be a backup.
Just let him leave.

4.) 11 Jan 2019 13:29:04
Think the idea of a contract extension was to allow us to get a transfer fee for him the coming summer.
Personally I think we should just let it be and let him go in the summer. There is always a possibility that no club would be willing to pay a decent transfer fee for Moreno, and we end up stuck with him for the foreseeable future.

5.) 11 Jan 2019 21:27:39
Question would be who are the options to replace him if he should go in the summer?

6.) 11 Jan 2019 21:56:53
Thought he was great when he first game scored a cracking goal against spurs then it all went downhill.

7.) 12 Jan 2019 00:20:21
Adam Lewis.

8.) 12 Jan 2019 00:24:23
All for one of Lewis, Juanma, or another youngster get a few chances instead.

9.) 12 Jan 2019 00:08:41
I think the logic is to keep him for another year until the youth players are closer to the first team.

We don't want to sign another LB as presumably it'll be on at least a 2 year contract and block the route for the youngsters.

He is a liability but you can see some sense from the club's side in keeping him on the bench for 1 more year.

10.) 12 Jan 2019 04:46:56
Completely agree brommer. I think that would be ideal and ruthless for the club but useless for morenos own career progression.

11.) 12 Jan 2019 06:22:45
So was it a better option to keep Clyne as fullback cover and let Moreno leave on free or peanuts.
Who would have been a better backup.

12.) 12 Jan 2019 11:27:06
bhav_reds - Clyne asked if he could leave to get more playing time, Moreno didn't.



08 Jan 2019 12:27:43
Hi Ed001

I hope your well mate. Not sure you've been asked or not but do you see us signing anyone this window? Appreciate your out of touch a little as you've got family staying with you but do you even know of us working on anything at the minute?


{Ed001's Note - I am not expecting much, if anything to happen with ins. Depends a lot on the outs though.}

1.) 08 Jan 2019 17:11:27
Ok mate fair enough, ties in with what Klopp has been saying tbh. Thank you.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 17:31:22
Probably pushing my luck Ed mate lol, any chance of a little update on transfers in general from your end please once your parents have returned safely and you have started your diet like the rest of us🤣. Sharkopod is great but would love summin from you mate, and you certainly know your sh#t. 😘.

{Ed001's Note - I will try mate.}

3.) 08 Jan 2019 18:14:52
Cheers Ed, top man.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}



31 Dec 2018 18:14:55
Hi Ed's

Do we have interest in Bristol City's Lloyd Kelly?


{Ed002's Note - It is an interesting question. I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly, but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}

1.) 31 Dec 2018 22:56:38
Never heard of him, is he any good?

2.) 31 Dec 2018 23:17:08
Ok Ed cheers mate appreciate your help.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 23:57:07
Lloyd Kelly is still very young, 20yo i believe. He is tall, a very good athlete though need to bulk up. Has good technical ability but needs to work on reading of the game and his defensive skills as he tends to use his physical attributes more at the moment. Currently he plays at LB though he is expected to play in CB in 4-5 years time (a bit like how Gomez has progressed you can say) .

Seemed to be highly rated in Bristol and at England U21 level.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 18:03:21
Hi, just a quick one on Lloyd kelly, I’m a season ticket holder at Bristol city and kelly is a local lad who is highly thought of, very quick, lovely left peg, tall and strong, but seems too relaxed sometimes, he is prone to making quite a few mistakes, but he’s very young and still learning, and I agree with the Gomez comparisons, he’s played centre half a fair few times for city already this season and he’s certainly one who looks like he has the potential to move up a level.

24 Mar 2019 17:13:01
Ed do you no if the Ox and Gomez are expected to be for and available for next weekend V Spurs? And if they are fully fit would you play them.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know at the moment, last I heard Ox was not expected to be fit for anything this season other than a cameo or two. Gomez was expected to be ready but I don't know if anything has changed been a bit busy last few days setting up a bday party here for a Salah family party tonight, so I won't be about much for the next few hours sorry.}

1.) 24 Mar 2019 17:35:39
You’re related to Salah, Ed1? Wow!

{Ed001's Note - hahaha no me mate is a Salah.}

2.) 24 Mar 2019 17:38:33
Ok mate cheers Ed. I thought Klopp said Ox will be 100% fit after the international break. I thought it was a bit optimistic. A Salah family party mate? 🤔.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

3.) 24 Mar 2019 17:53:53
Even if both players were fit neither would start. Ox hasn’t played first team football for almost a year and Gomez has played for over 3 months.

4.) 24 Mar 2019 18:29:59
Ed, who is a Salah?

{Ed001's Note - my mate here is.}



20 Mar 2019 17:28:13
Hi Ed's

Can I ask please what you think we will do with our Centre back area in the summer. Obviously we have 4 at the minute with our best 2 as Virgil and Joe, with the other 2 as back up. Do you think Klopp is happy with the back ups or could we well look to bring another one in with one leaving?


{Ed001's Note - depends on Lovren in the main, whether he is happy to stay or wants to go.}

1.) 20 Mar 2019 17:44:51
Ok mate cheers, he obviously isn’t happy playing as back up and must be pissed he is now behind Matip. I guess the issue is for us finding someone who is happy to be back up and better than the back up we already have.

2.) 20 Mar 2019 19:15:29
He’s barely been fit, and not sure we should bring him back in if matip is playing week in week out, and showing signs of improvement.

3.) 20 Mar 2019 19:51:00
Matip still gives me fits. Lovs is the better defender and CB and the only reason Matip is playing is cos the two CB's ahead of him (by a large margin, I might add) are injured. Were they not injured, he would have been on the bench, like he had been before they got injured.

Lovs is a good back up BUT I am not sure he would want to be back up so he might leave. And even if he does, we need a CB who is better than Matip and one who can step in for Gomez when unfit so the drop off in performance won't be that steep. We shall see.

4.) 21 Mar 2019 12:16:48
I don't think we'll miss Dejan if he leaves. Matip is younger and seems to have put his fitness issues behind him. Let Lovren leave to go be first choice and bring in Dael Fry, who can also play RB (at least under Pulis) .



13 Mar 2019 21:05:20
Evening Ed002

Can I just ask please are you aware what positions Liverpool are looking to prioritise with signings in he summer, or is it far to early to tell?


{Ed002's Note - Need GK, CB, LB/RB cover and LM - could look to a Creative AM player. But most would not be first pick. It also depends on which youngsters (e.g. Brewster) can step up and who leaves.}

1.) 13 Mar 2019 23:13:12
I know Ed01 mentioned it but in your opinion 02 do you think Liverpool could sign Hudson odoi this summer? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No. I don't know what Ed001 has said but if Liverpool have made an approach it would be an illegal one.}

2.) 14 Mar 2019 01:12:28
No chance Lerchy mate, the player would want guarantee's of game time and Chelsea have already turned down some pretty ridiculous offers. that's without the premiums they'd add when selling to a direct rival.

Plus Chelsea's transfer situation is going to be a mess with the potential transfer Ban and Hazard likely leaving. Likeable player but there's just no way it happens.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 02:20:01
GK-Butland, Stratoskha (Lazio) .
RB-Camacho, KiHanaHoover? .
LB-Sessegnon, Chilwell, Lewis.
CB-Bruno Diaz (Benfica), Fryer? .
CM-Rabiot, R. Neves.
LM/ AM-Brandt, Coutinho, Fekir, Aouar (Lyon), C. Jones, Woodburn, H. Wilson.
ST-Werner, Brewster.

4.) 14 Mar 2019 05:53:45
Some good points there eamon, I agree with you now you put it like that. I’m gutted we didn’t get sancho.

5.) 14 Mar 2019 07:29:01
I personally like the idea of a full back that also has the pace and ability to cover the front wide positions too, you’ve got 2 in 1 then and better value for money.
Sessegnon could fit the bill actually, I’m a fan of his and he’d prosper under Klopp I feel.
Hopefully Brewster can cover the striker role but, if not, again a versatile quickie is a must.
Happy days though, CL football to look forward to again next year.

6.) 14 Mar 2019 08:02:20
I think Brewster will certainly be given a chance, let’s not forget he was top scorer in that World Cup tournament sancho and Foden were in and they’re coming along nicely. I think he got player of the tournament too? Good luck to the lad.

7.) 14 Mar 2019 09:02:37
Sessegnon would be a Good shout, takes care of lb and lm, loads of potential and helps home grown quota.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 00:00:21
He just said he wasn’t aware of any interest but I think he would be a great option if Shaqiri was to leave, thanks Ed.

9.) 14 Mar 2019 09:16:42
Any interest from Liverpool in Kai Havertz for that Att mid role Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - None at all I am afraid.}

10.) 14 Mar 2019 09:25:18
Thank you Ed, only just seen your reply mate. Laxalt you have mentioned for the LM spot and a few young centre backs. Any ideas on the GK or LB/ RB cover?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that I suspect interest in Laxalt has gone. I am not aware of Liverpool being any further forward with other positions although they are continuing scouting on a constant basis - as of course many clubs are.}

11.) 14 Mar 2019 01:13:05
Thanks for the info Ed002. Can i ask if you're aware of particular moves for any Liverpool players? Either them wanting a move or them being wanted. Ta.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing concrete although some of the youngsters will be considering their future if players, particularly young players, come in ahead of them.}

12.) 14 Mar 2019 09:39:24
Ok Ed thank you again.



12 Mar 2019 13:57:44
Ed since you advised on Gomez fitness mate do you have any update on Ox please? He played 41minutes Friday night in the U23's I believe but then went off as precaution. Do you no when he will be back in contention for the first team?


{Ed001's Note - I haven't heard. I know it was a hamstring injury, but not sure on the severity, but I would not expect anything more than cameos out of him this season, if anything.}

1.) 12 Mar 2019 15:12:26
Believe it was just a niggle which is normal when recovering from a long term injury, and was taken off mostly as precaution. I’d agree will take plenty of time to get back to true match fitness.

2.) 12 Mar 2019 18:16:37
Search for Greggers, a poster on here who is a physio and gave a great breakdown a few days ago. In short- don't expect him to be back to his best for another year.



11 Mar 2019 15:43:18
Does anyone agree with my thoughts that Mane has been our best player this season? Yes he has missed a few chances but is just a goal or 2 behind Salah now. His work rate in working back to help Robbo our is noticeable in most games and he interchanges with others. He isn't greedy which is perhaps his downfall at times but in general our most consistent player this season IMO. Along with Virgil for different reasons.


1.) 11 Mar 2019 16:09:27
Van Dijk is my player of the season and by a fair bit as well.

Certainly an argument to be made for Mane being our best attacking player this season, but its hard to say. Mane is certainly our most in-form attacker at the minute, but I think I'd still personally have Salah ahead of him for his overall contribution to the season.

2.) 11 Mar 2019 17:15:54
Fully agree. He's been the one consistently making stuff happen for a while now.

3.) 11 Mar 2019 17:16:57
Defo van dijk for me, good shout would be winaldum not his biggest fan but he's been top class this season.

4.) 11 Mar 2019 17:17:57
Mane has been our best forward all season. There's been times where the other two have been off form but he's been the most consistent defo.

5.) 11 Mar 2019 17:23:49
There are so many candidates. Mane has been outstanding recently but he did go through a month or so of poor form. Klopp quite rightly let him play his way through it and he has come back even better then ever.

Candidates for player of season have to include Robbo and Gini for consistent strong performances Gomez for reaching a level nobody knew he could reach, Salah for being so effective in tying up defenders to create space and Fabinho in moving from last to first on the teamsheet.

For me though on another level are Allison and Virgil. The difference those two male to the team puts them as my players of the season. VVD edges it purely because when I watch him I don’t understand how he makes defending so easy.

6.) 11 Mar 2019 17:50:33
Allison, hands down for me. The likes of Mane, Salah or Bobby or even Robbo, are kind of known quantities in a way cos we already either know for sure (the front 3 and VVD) that they are the real deal or that they have too much upside and margin of progression (Robbo) . I also NEVER criticize our front 3 that much cos one or two could be off form BUT NEVER all three of them off form at the same time. Kudos to them, IMO for staying the course and bailing each other and us out every time.

Allison on the other hand, is to me, the biggest reason we have been in the title race word go this season. This is his first season and his infuence on the team after just the first few months, is the type that took the likes of DDG 3 years to attain. Yeah, Alli is THAT good. And he will only get better.

7.) 11 Mar 2019 18:03:47
Yeah Allison for me too.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 18:17:48
Alberto Moreno for me!

9.) 11 Mar 2019 18:42:37
1) Van Dijk
2) Alisson
3) Mane/ Wijnaldum/ Fabinho

For me 👍.

10.) 11 Mar 2019 18:58:13
Virgil. No contest.

11.) 11 Mar 2019 19:01:42
Its so great to see so much competition between our players for player of the year.

There are cases to be made for all of the above, VVD, Alisson, Mane, Gini, Fab (later on in the season) even Robbo and Trent.

Just shows how much the team has stepped up even in the last 12 months.

Long may it continue!

12.) 11 Mar 2019 19:02:17
I think salah getting double teamed is a big reason mane is getting more goals.

13.) 11 Mar 2019 19:58:14
The main question to ask is, who would we miss most if they were out? Surely the answer is simple, VVD? Yes Mane is scoring some goals, but others do and can chip in. If Virg is out we all hold our breath on every attack or set piece.

14.) 11 Mar 2019 20:28:44
It is VVD there is no discussion needed. Without him we wouldn't have got to last years final and we wouldn't challenge for the title. Allison has of course been very good but will be better next year. He is still adapting to the prem.

Mane has been better than last season and hope he continues his goalscoring form. He has been our main goalscorer for a few months winning us plenty points. If Mane gets around 22 league goals he will of had a top season playing from the wing and defending the way he does.

15.) 11 Mar 2019 20:56:49
I think mane has really stepped up this year specifically since xmas he has without a doubt been our best forward. Gini has finally added some consistency to his game and has been really good.
Vvd and allison have both been superb all season
However for me its what players step up or continue to perform over the next 8 crucial games that will decide how we can judge them on the season
Just my tuppence worth.

16.) 11 Mar 2019 21:36:58
VVD by a long way Gini is second Gomez was fighting with it with VVD till his injury shows what a massive miss he has been. Fab has been good but did not get in the team early enough to come close. And all the front 3 have been a bit up and down this season. Allison has been great to this season made us so much stronger back there but he does put your heart in your mouth a few times.

17.) 11 Mar 2019 21:40:44
I get what your saying about VVD, but Ming's back in goal, head wobble time, just say no!

18.) 11 Mar 2019 22:29:09
In all fairness, VVD has to be excluded from any discussion of our player of the season for one very good reason. He is bigger, stronger, jumps higher, runs faster and is more powerful than the rest. No human being could possibly make defending look so easy. He is clearly an alien. Of the humans, Mane would be my choice for his goals and work rate - and his complete inability to celebrate a goal properly.

19.) 11 Mar 2019 22:32:58
Difficult to argue with VVD but Robertson has also performed week in and out, goes below the radar can't think of him being injured or taken off.

20.) 11 Mar 2019 22:33:20
One word, Ming's, Allison all day long.

21.) 11 Mar 2019 22:42:38
Virgil by a long shot. I can't even remember him making a serious mistake this season. Gini, Mane, Allisson and Fab have all been superb but have all had a poor spell mid-season. Van Dyke, however, has been sublime.

22.) 12 Mar 2019 08:16:01
Idontlikeklopp - Allison may be a “Flash” in the pan?

23.) 12 Mar 2019 10:41:11
VVD by a long way for me.
Allison second.
Third is more tricky, could be wijinaldum, Fabinho, mane and even Gomez for me.

24.) 12 Mar 2019 12:16:31
Best defender = vvd
Best midfielder = gini or fab
Best forward = mane

But robbo, trent, milner, salah and firmino all deserve shouts. Alisson also.

25.) 12 Mar 2019 17:49:30
Allison or Virgil for me too tbh. Mane been very good recently but had a bit of a blip too, though they all rotate that, front 3 together generally have been great but the defence looks proper solid since those two entered the fray

Gomez until his injury would have had a great shout too, was honestly great at cb.

Ok mate cheers, he obviously isn’t happy playing as back up and must be pissed he is now behind Matip. I guess the issue is for us finding someone who is happy to be back up and better than the back up we already have.

Thank you Ed, only just seen your reply mate. Laxalt you have mentioned for the LM spot and a few young centre backs. Any ideas on the GK or LB/ RB cover?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained that I suspect interest in Laxalt has gone. I am not aware of Liverpool being any further forward with other positions although they are continuing scouting on a constant basis - as of course many clubs are.}
