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.}

If the results that we had over the last five weeks were spread out throughout the season and we sat where we do in the table now I don't believe as many people would be moaning as they are now. It's not been an ideal month but it is what it is.

I've read on this site for years to give youth a chance and when we do and it doesn't work everyone is demanding signings which would close the door on youth possibilities.

I for one, feel that we possibly over achieved at the first half of the season, take nothing away from the performances but other teams weren't performing as they are now which made our position look stronger than it was. We wanted top four as fans, I understand owners want the title but we were being realistic. Top four and one or two good cup runs. We had a good cup run and we're still in top four. Frustrating month yes but don't let frustration supercede initial expectations.

There's still a long way to go, I genuinely believe the title will be won by 2-3 points wherever it goes. There's some brilliant football being played my many teams and I'm enjoying how close everything is as a football fan. I I hope we push on now we're back to full strength and get back to the right kind of consistency.

Question for any eds that may know, how far is Juanma away from making first team squad. Think with him and ojo/ Wilson down the left, mane right and coutinho dropping into the centre ahead of Wijnaldum we'd be frightening


1.) 02 Feb 2017 14:07:22
I think if the defeats were spread out, it would rightly not be causing such concern.

Surely it is more concerning have 2 months of poor form than to just occassionally be beaten by a team who played better on the day?

I agree some people are over reacting, but all the results being clustered in the timeframe we were missing Mane and Matip makes it very alarming as it points to a complete lack of depth in their positions.

2.) 02 Feb 2017 14:33:03
Agreed, lads. Our form in Jan was poor and hopefully, the performance (not necessarily the result, has instilled belief into the team and confidence-wise, will be the sot of energy that we need to improve. Blips happen during the season so hopefully, we've had ours and with 15 games left, we can kick on and finish the season the way we started the first 4 months of it. Hull will be the first and difficult test.

3.) 02 Feb 2017 14:39:10
I'm not as concerned about the results themselves (and there was obviously way too much negativity), but more that we seemed to be slipping into old habits, with a struggle to break down deep defences, and looking very shaky on the break.

We seem to be back to strength now, so hopefully we'll put this behind us, but Klopp does still need to figure out how to balance the side better in Attack vs Defence against a low block yet still have enough to score.

4.) 02 Feb 2017 16:26:32
Our form looks bad due to the run in the cups. We are still going at 2 points per game in the League and for all those crying out for a replacement for Mane over January, he missed two EPL matches while he was at the AFCON. And who exactly was this player some wanted to replace Mane? It would be great if these fans can name a better player at the moment to replace Mane. What a joke.

What is more, we almost reached another final blooding in youngsters and literally played a different team each match in January due to the fixture pile up.

Getting back into the CL is now priority now, and with no other competitions ahead of us, we can fully concentrate on the League.

5.) 02 Feb 2017 16:43:24
The over reactions are coz everyone including the man himself knew we are much better than what we produced in January. I had a genuine feeling we will win the title this season with everything favouring us including 3 sides changing their managers and system completely and Klopp already settled in. We gifted the advantage to Chelsea.

6.) 02 Feb 2017 16:55:32
Max it isn't about getting a player of the same quality. It is about maintaining the balance.

Matip is our only composed centre back. Lovren and Klavan are both left sided and both more agressive/ rash. With any luck Gomez will develop into cover for Matip and maybe even his partner. But you cannot deny we missed Matip.

On Mane, he is our only senior wide man and our only pacey forward. You don't need a matching quality of player. You just need adequate competition that doesn't affect your system when called upon. If Chelsea lose Hazard or Pedro, they have Willian. If we lose Mane, we have no like for like switch. If we lose Coutinho, we have to put Lallana or Firmino out of position.

That is why Chelsea can cope with niggling injuries and we cannot. We do not need a player as good as Mane to sit on the bench. We just need a player who performs the same job. Many here hoped that would be Ojo. He wasn't ready, and neither was Woodburn or Wilson.

Going forward, if the youth are not good enough to provide cover, we need to improve our strength in depth. I disagreed in November. A lot has changed since then. All the 'Give youth the chance' brigade (myself included) now have to accept that Gomez and Ojo were not ready for the responsibility we were willing to heap on them.

Klopp will have learned this too. Mark my words, there will be changes in the summer. Read his interviews about January signings in December, then read the interviews from the last week. Complete change of tone. He knows his mistake. He will rectify it.

7.) 02 Feb 2017 17:00:26
Gifted the advantage to Chelsea? What a plonker comment. We were one point ahead of Chelsea for the one game week we were top of the League. They have won 18 of their 23 EPL matches and not one team is keeping up with them this season.

Mathematics clearly is not your strongest point.

8.) 02 Feb 2017 17:09:08
Klopp knows what mistake MK Scouser? Would new signings have guaranteed a top 4 finish?

Klopp said, the players he wanted were not for sale in January and made it clear he is not going to sign players unless they improve the team. Not players willing to sit on the bench. If we are going to sign players and the clubs money gets used to do that then from know on it has to be on a player who will push Mane for his place, not one happy to sit on the bench and collect his pay.

I am glad Klopp is waiting for the summer while some idiot fans insisted that Klopp spent some ridiculous amount, probably double what we paid for Lovren to get Van Dijk. This is the kind of transfer activity which saw Klopp take over a team last season which was filled players who were not good enough.

9.) 02 Feb 2017 19:00:08
Max, he said the players he wanted were not available towards the end of the month. Before the window opened he was making it quite clear that he was happy with his squad and that they had a plan to cope without Mane. Well that plan clearly wasn't a transfer, and whatever it was clearly failed.

The only confirmed attempt we made to sign anyone was Mariano and that was late in the window according to the Echo.

That to me suggests that he thought the squad was good enough, and didn't realise it wasn't until it was too late.

If he truly did try and sign players he wanted but they were not available or willing to join us, then that just shows complete ineptitude from the talent identification team. As that would suggest he and the club knew there were weaknesses in the squad, and the club as a whole failed to identify available and realistic options.

However you dress this up, the squad wasn't good enough and we failed to cope with the winter fixture list. Excuses for that failure are pointless. There are a collection of accumulative reasons. I have every faith it will not happen again on this scale under Klopp. He is a slow learner as per Ed002, but he is no fool. Our lack of depth has killed any chance we had of silverware unless we go on a 15 game winning run in the league. Even that might not be enough to overhaul Chelsea.

10.) 02 Feb 2017 19:34:39
Wasn't Mariano going to be a loan deal? So that indicates that Klopp made a mistake by not getting a player on loan? Would be great if ED002 can confirm this.

The transfer market is not one which Liverpool has room for mistakes anymore, especially not in January.

{Ed002's Note - It would have been a loan with his summer decided by what happens with three other strikers at RM - all of whom might leave.}

11.) 02 Feb 2017 19:53:25
Thought so Ed002

So one can only assume that Klopp was trying to loan a player in knowing that if it does not work out then that player will move back to his club at the end of the season. As it is, we already have too many attacking players to cope with our remaining fixture list.

Pretty much sums it up that Klopp will move on one or maybe even two current attacking players on in the summer before he makes another one maybe two new players permanent.

{Ed002's Note - No, their were no strange motives - it was a simple request for a loan. Liverpool buys, sells and loan players just like every other club.}

12.) 02 Feb 2017 20:26:54
Did we try for a permanent move when it came to Mariano?

Just saying that Klopp would have had a look at the squad and maybe thought, I have enough players at this point and that he still has to move on some to make space in the squad. Unless he could get the players he wanted then there was no point spending money on players he had no interest in.

Pretty sure the club made money available to Klopp, especially if the club would have had to pay a loan fee for Mariano and his wages. Does not mean Mariano would have been a permanent signing for next season. Who knows, Maybe real want to keep Mariano which would have made Mariano a stop gap for Liverpool.

13.) 02 Feb 2017 20:34:36
MK, I agree with your premise but there is something else you are not considering. When mane left, many on here including myself, thought we don't need anyone as we already had Origi and the best finisher in the PL arguably in Studge to finally come into the team and stake their claims to a starting berth. Alas, they have been poor and did not step up. If (a big IF) Klopp thought of this the way I explained, can we really blame him for placing trust in players who have produced for him in the past, for not producing now hence, not wanting to sign anybody? he may have wanted Mariano at the last minute and he is very talented if you've seen him play cos I have, it would be after seeing that Studge and Origi faltered. Just saying. Thoughts?

14.) 02 Feb 2017 20:49:13
Max, And maybe Klopp didn't want a stop gap solution. That's possible, right?



26 Oct 2016 22:19:47
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.}

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
