Hi eds, is someone having a laugh suggesting 18million for Rossi? Please tell me we're not interested.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool.}

1.) 08 Dec 2015 13:45:30
Someone to compete with Sturridge. For time out injured, that is.

2.) 08 Dec 2015 14:10:25
Perhaps the strategy is if we have Pato, Rossi, Sturridge in the squad we might be able to get at least one of them on the pitch between them.

3.) 09 Dec 2015 00:00:17
Will prefer drogba or ibra or eto . at least they are fit most of time.

4.) 09 Dec 2015 01:36:52
To be fair zimbo, pato has played nearly 50 games this calendar year. Least I read that. Scored 25 or so goals, don't know the exact number.

5.) 09 Dec 2015 07:59:43
Is there any hope of Ings returning this January, i am in agreement with Klop's direction, stop buying finished products, start COACHING those you have on ground and moving only those who are unteachable.

{Ed001's Note - Ings is out for the season.}

Perfect draw, couldn't have asked for better, still need to take it serious but at home against Leeds, more than happy with that.




01 Oct 2016 01:06:25
I just want to put my two pence in, I've been coming to this site for nine years now, I have no one in the know, I never post anything that seems otherwise.

I remember posting about seven years ago because I played for the same team as Craig Bellamy and there was someone else we played alongside, wanted to know what had happened to him and Ed 01said he'd heard of him and would find our.

I posted when Gary Speed unfortunately left us and due to going through a bad divorce at the time maybe said a bit too much of how I was feeling at the time, Ed02 obviously had to edit my post but responded and helped me where I was at that time.

Guess what I'm saying is when sometimes some of us feel we have nothing else left, we still come on here, we still read everything and, if we feel we can, we may post.

No disrespect to any other eds, but ed01 and especially Ed02 for that night I was really low, I thank you both from the bottom of my heart. It's a thankless job you do at times but please know, you make a massive difference to some people.

This isn't me kissing butt or anything like that, I've been in dark places and not only the eds bot the posters on here have helped me out or taken my mind off things. Ed02, you may not realise but you helped more than you can imagine know that one night.

There's a lot here that don't appreciate the every day things the eds do but I'm betting I wasn't the only one that got that far and the eds or the posters helped in one way or the other.

I don't post much but seeing some of the abuse towards the eds recently I felt compelled to do so. There's people on here who have different views to me but we're all one big family and will disagree as families do, just drop the crap about the eds, they do hell of a job because they choose to. Thanks eds and posters, helped me through a lot, will never forget and I know will never walk alone.


{Ed002's Note - These are wonderful and kind words WelshScouse. I truly thank you on behalf of the Eds and it is heart warming to see we may have helped in someway. I hope is life is settled for you now. I can be a tiny bit harsh on some folks, you have probably not noticed that, and I had had arrived in England from Los Angeles mid-morning and certainly could have done without any abuse. I will make sure that the Liverpool masses don't suffer at the hands of a few. I do have a little something lined up but looking at my diary this morning October looks even uglier than I realised (as do the first two weeks of November), so it might take a while.}

1.) 01 Oct 2016 06:56:22
Welsh, it's good to hear you're in a better place and you're absolutely right with all the points you make.
There's far too much vitriol on this site sometimes and I'm sure a few imbeciles will even click the "disagree" button but although I post much less frequently than I used to I still visit regularly and when I read posts like yours I'm glad I do. YNWA.

{Ed002's Note - Good to see you still hiding in the bushes Chris.}

2.) 01 Oct 2016 07:35:44
Welshscouse great post man we all need someone to chat to and help us make sense of things from time to time, keep the posts coming man no matter how many disagrees we all have something to say.

3.) 01 Oct 2016 08:11:57
Absolute fantastic post mate. Thanks for sharing that with us.

4.) 01 Oct 2016 08:16:47
This is how amazing this site is. I think the Eds do a great job and the support I've seen given is unbelievable genuine fans are more than welcome to post because they are hugely passionate for Liverpool football club but these trogs who come on to make peoples lives worse go somewhere else. Every genuine fan and Eds keep up the good work keep looking after each other. COYR YNWA.

5.) 01 Oct 2016 08:48:32
Great post WelshScouse and I hope things have got a lot better for you since. This site is easily the most reliable source of football information on Liverpool and others, but also I've seen eds and posters help out with all kinds of life situations if someone needs help. I don't post often but I'm glad your post has highlighted what a great site this is in so many ways. Glad you are back in Blighty Ed and hope you can ignore the trolls.

6.) 01 Oct 2016 08:50:14
It's my favourite place to be Ed.

7.) 01 Oct 2016 09:15:33
I think a lot of us will echo the post from Welshscouse. The eds take their time for free and give us so much. Anyone who abuses them so go on the Man U site, the Arsenal site, the Southampton site to name a few. They are not the same without the eds.

Welsh, I'm glad the eds were able to help and hope things have picked up for you. At least you have the mighty reds to watch today 😌



8.) 01 Oct 2016 09:41:50
Cracking post WelshScouse, not the easiest thing to express but you did a good job. Hope the waves on life's ocean are less choppy for you atm.

{Ed001's Note - it was a lovely post, one of those that makes it worthwhile doing this.}

9.) 01 Oct 2016 09:54:26
Ed02 anything you choose to share or not to is completely up to you. I understand sometimes the few can get under your skin more than the many because you might have 1000 people read your responses and have 3 of those respond positively and 3 negatively so you wonder why you bother, the other 994 are reading and appreciating but may not say it, whether it be due to lack of time or just can't be arsed with the abuse the response may get but please, all eds please believe, for every troll that posts, there's a hundred avid readers and followers that appreciate everything you do, even if we don't tell you.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and wishes, really means a lot. Hopefully a good win today but either way, we'll still be on here after the match, agreeing, disagreeing, whatever, we may be a dysfunctional family at times but it's our Liverpool rumours family and always will be.


10.) 01 Oct 2016 10:10:14
I to posted on here in June when I lost my mother in law to Lung Cancer and the amount of support my family got from the Ed's and fellow posters took us out of a very dark place. In fact my wife still reads them from time to time.
So in short Ed's we need you.

11.) 01 Oct 2016 10:16:31
I hope to see more posts from you WelshScouse - it was good to come on here this morning and see such posts. This is how it should be, having some appreciation instead of giving them hassle. but as the saying goes, there's always one! or in this case the odd few, odd been the keyword here. I said it about and I'll say it again, how anybody can give the eds hassle is beyond me, they deserve medals the size of frying pans.

Welsh, ed1 and ed2. thank you!

12.) 01 Oct 2016 10:08:23
And just a shout out to ed01, I know the initial post was targeted a lot to Ed02, I ended up getting back with her for the kids sake and went through it all again, the responses you send, the time you take out to be specific and genuine honest answers, and the pod casts, gives people a break from reality, an escape if you will, and a lot of people need that massively so thank you for everything you do, you're all appreciated more than you know.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate, I really hope things are going better for you now.}

13.) 01 Oct 2016 10:38:33
Hope your in a better place now welshscouse! Good luck mate YNWA.

14.) 01 Oct 2016 10:57:32
In a much better place now thank you everyone, divorce finalised and moving forward with life, they say life's too short and after 16 years of that, they're right. I remember posting when you were going through that Barry and reading the amazing posts of support you got. Glad you and your missus took a lot from it.

My initial post wasn't for me but for the eds, I really appreciate all the kind words from everyone, don't get me wrong, but just got to the point after everything they do for us when they don't have to, had enough at the snide, arrogant, nasty digs at the eds, they don't deserve it and although I don't post often, just wanted them to know that they are very much appreciated and part of the family.

15.) 01 Oct 2016 12:03:51
Thank you so much WelshScouse we got through it mate. From everyone in my family we wish you every success now and in the future.

16.) 01 Oct 2016 12:37:29
Hi all, great love to all. Welshscouse, best wishes to you. To the eds A BIG Thank you and to my fellow reds YNWA. Thanks for the site!

17.) 01 Oct 2016 13:03:37
Wish the same to you and yours Barry, and everyone else on the site.

18.) 01 Oct 2016 14:53:55
Great posts lads. fully echo your words regarding the eds. Cheers for all the info and hard work. Great win today. Played poorly but still won.



06 Jul 2016 08:29:08
Slightly off Liverpool but this is the only site I post on. A massive good luck to Wales this evening, win or lose, the whole country is already immensely proud of you. The unity and determination you play with is fantastic, anything can happen so let's continue to enjoy this ride and see where it takes us. Cymru am byth.


1.) 06 Jul 2016 10:05:01
Come on Wales!

2.) 06 Jul 2016 10:30:29
Me and my dad have worked out how Welsh we are. I am 1/ 64 and he is 1/ 32.

Surname like Jones, it was never really in doubt!

So I am 100% behind Wales tonight. A Robson-Kanu tap in from a Bale cross on the 53rd minute. Nani to equalise on the 84th minutes with a deflected shot (off Ginger Collins) from outside the area. Then Bale to bend in a free kick winner in extra time (117th minute) to rescue the Welsh from penalties. You heard it here first!

3.) 06 Jul 2016 10:41:35
Here here good luck Wales.

4.) 06 Jul 2016 12:22:44
Yes good luck to Wales and to bring it back on topic a little to our wee Joe! Anyone for Joe to be pushing forward a bit more in the absence of Ramsey and to nick a goal. Best of luck anyway from a newly adopted Irish son. 😁.

5.) 06 Jul 2016 15:01:02
Don't say that mk I just put money on Wales to win in the shootout!

6.) 06 Jul 2016 16:56:45
I think the jammy Portuguese will win.
I'm hoping not, I'd like Wales to do it but it just looks like Portugal have their name on it.

Be nice for Wales to win and dedicate it to Gary Speed RIP.



10 May 2016 08:29:36
Hey Ed01, Maltese card declined for some reason but have funds going into English account Thursday so will donate then, hope everything goes smoothly for you from here. If you're ever in Malta, give us a shout and we'll go for a beer, a lot closer from Spain than Dubai haha best of luck.


{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, if I ever get lucky enough to go there I will take you up on that. Though you will have to drink the beers for me.}

1.) 10 May 2016 08:35:14
Very nice non alcoholic beer called clausthaler, I drink for 1-2 months every year when I feel like detoxing a bit,

{Ed001's Note - I have to say I have never liked beer anyway, nor any alcoholic drink, so it was not a miss for me when I stopped drinking.}



05 Feb 2016 12:07:16
Hi Eds and reds,

Question for Ed02, what is your personal opinion on the Chinese league? I personally feel that the have the money and aspirations to put a serious project in place. When you think of the top leagues in the world, the Chinese league isn't one that you would immediately think of, however, I'm not naive enough to believe this will always be the case. If they continue to bring in big names, players at their peak, the worldwide coverage of the last two major signings will ensure interest from agents and players alike, maybe not immediately but certainly over the next 5-10 years.

Do you believe they could establish themselves into what are perceived as the top 5 leagues in the world or is there too much work to do there.

Seen a lot of posts putting TeX sown for his decision but the way i see it, he wasn't happy in Ukraine, no other team put in an acceptable offer and the coverage he will receive as possibly the poster boy of this league will accelerate his already well known name all around the world and certainly give him a better chance of getting into the national team because of that reputation and good luck to the boy.

Although the MLS has been well known to football fans alike, no one can truthfully say that the capture of Beckham didn't increase interest in their league ten fold. It shows what a major name can do. Now I'm not saying Martinez or Texeira are as big as the Beckham brand was when he moved but they are still in their prime, more than capable of getting into the supposed top leagues, so there's nothing to say they won't be in their respective countries.

Would be interested in your opinion on this as with the breakaway pan European league talked about and Liverpool not one of the teams currently involved, it could end up Chinese league being a lot bigger than what's left of English football and Texeira looking back thinking he's the one that dodged a bullet and being grateful we didn't match his value in our bid.


{Ed002's Note - This is my explanation that I wrote about what is happening:

Since China opened up it has thrown a massive potential market in to the mix for professional sports (not just football, but there are other growth sports as well) and a number of Chinese companies see the potential for significant income form the game. Chinese money is already flooding through football with ownership and/or investment in clubs as diverse as Espanyol, Den Haag, Sochaux, Atletico Madrid, Slavia Prague and significantly, City Football Group. City of course owns Manchester City, New York City, Yokohama F Marino and Melbourne City - and are looking to expand in to China and South America. For years the professional game in China was under a cloud of corruption (including match-fixing) and the Chinese, and to be fair FIFA, have worked very hard to resolve the issues. The game is on the up there and they have the money to pretty much do what they want. They now a shift will be coming in Europe and I would expect to see further investment in European sides - there is one organization looking hard at Germany and another at Italy. They of course have to work within certain legal ownership frameworks and that will restrict investment in certain countries. Do not be surprised to see an English side be taken over by Chinese owners in the not too distant future. Meanwhile, the profile of the game at home is increasing and the market to be tapped significant. I spent several months in Hong Kong working in both 1988 and again in 1990 and it was clear then that the mainland needed a step change and it could get leverage over so much - since then that has happened. Six months working out of Beijing in 2005 (until they pretty much forced me out) showed that changes were happening - since then I understand from colleagues who do visit that it has moved on a lot.

In terms of my personal view:

The Chinese are intent on cleaning up their act and want to promote sport within a nation that has only recently fully opened their doors to the outside world. There is a significant shift in wealth to the Far East and in particular China. They will invest and build in their own leagues and they will go to other parts of the world to learn. Chelsea has lost one player to China and has had an approach about a second. Other players from the EPL will follow with at least one Manchester City and at least one Liverpool player having opportunities in China for next season. They will learn from the mistakes of others and they will soon be looking to add coaching capabilities by recruiting from other leagues. It is progress - like it or not.}

1.) 05 Feb 2016 12:23:17
The Chinese are trying to convert their manufacturing income that was dominating for years in Asia to sport now because the manufacturing area has almost come to a standstill and they see this as the best way of reinvesting the millions and with some billions safely, the country as a whole has been very close to collapse for the last 3 years due to over investment in manufacturing and are being honest taking swift action to recoup any lost money in the sport industry which is a hugely profitable resource worldwide.

2.) 05 Feb 2016 12:24:54
Does that mean the Shenzhen FC could soon be singing the yaya/ kolo chant ed002.

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of football chanting I am afraid boba.}

3.) 05 Feb 2016 12:38:54
Thanks for your reply end, as always, very informative and certainly something to think about.

4.) 05 Feb 2016 12:40:03
As long as they keep the corruption traditional to the region out (lets be honest, football could do without even more of that! ) then bring it on, and good for them.

5.) 05 Feb 2016 15:44:44
Is Toure the Liverpool player you're referring to ed?

I really hope he is not going to be rushed back early to try and relieve some pressure from Brendan on the hope he has a stormer and scores the winner, because if he is rushed back early, it will be more than likely he will pick up an injury in the warm up and be out until after christmas
