Thanks Eds, lol!


2.) 01 Sep 2016 00:08:52
I've seen the light.

I now believe the L, not the o.

Think about it.


3.) 01 Sep 2016 15:59:13
Am I the only one thinking "huh? "


4.) 01 Sep 2016 17:15:40
Long story!


5.) 01 Sep 2016 18:01:30
We have a while Zeddicus, take it away.


6.) 01 Sep 2016 19:05:34
What is this o you speak of I'd like t know more about it.


7.) 01 Sep 2016 20:43:10
Orson.


8.) 01 Sep 2016 20:46:10
So there are two explanations for this.

1) I was replying to another thread, got bored of my own reply (! ) and went to press 'close' but pressed reply instead. So I immediately posted to the same thread again explaining what had happened and asking the eds to delete my reply. As this was around the time of the window closing, and the eds were just coming to the end of 127 hour shifts, I think they thought it would be funny to post my aborted reply as a rumour instead. Or;

2) In an alternative reality lives an almighty Oracle named 'O'. He reigns supreme and knows everything about everything, and he's also a part time rodeo clown. His knowledge, however, is only absolute as long as he is believed by all. Even just one doubter dents his power and makes his knowledge imperfect. Therefore, we are all required to pay homage and state fealty to the great 'O' on a weekly basis. However, to complicate matters, 'O's immediate superior is 'L' (or 'Likely Source of All Rumours' to give him his full name) . So believing in 'L' means you automatically believe in 'O' too. Essentially, swearing fealty to 'L' is a labour saving option as 'O' still gets reflected glory.

Up to you which one you choose to believe 😀😀.


9.) 01 Sep 2016 23:11:57
Haha I'm going for the 2nd option. But I'm not paying state fealty.


10.) 02 Sep 2016 08:59:48
It's the 2nd the eds wouldn't be so cruel! Believe in the L!


11.) 02 Sep 2016 15:15:19
I thought he believed Walcott or something.


12.) 04 Sep 2016 06:05:36
Great rumour anyway.
Seen the banter pages guys?


 

 

28 Aug 2016 08:17:55
BBC Sport are saying that Fuchs is refusing to sign a new deal at Leicester so is on our radar.

Seems odd as he's 30 and we balked at an extra £2m for Chillwell, but has anyone heard anything about this, ideally from a less odious source?

Zeddicus

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Leicester nor am I aware of Leicester making any new contract offer to a player who only joined them last season, nor him refusing suich an offer as they prepare for a Champions League campaign.}


1.) 28 Aug 2016 08:58:48
Thanks for clearing that up Ed002, seemed an odd rumour. Especially as it's being reported that he only has a year left on a deal he signed last season, seems slit toe short.

{Ed002's Note - His contract rund to June 2018.}


2.) 28 Aug 2016 11:16:59
Zedd it's from the bbc gossip column, where they just round up various stories from rags. The one in question happens to be from the S*n so as ed002 think it's unlikely.


3.) 28 Aug 2016 11:32:25
Oncearad, yep, knew it was from the rag and that was in my original post but got edited given the name I called the rag!


 

 

27 Jul 2016 13:42:52
Not sure if this is Liverpool related any more, but I was excited to hear rumours some time back that Ruben Neves was linked with Liverpool.

Eds, does this remain the case, and are any other clubs interested in him for this window?

Thanks

Z.

Zeddicus

{Ed002's Note - Porto's Ruben Neves is subject to sustained interest from Chelsea, passing interest from Manchester City, PSG, Real Madrid and another English side (not LFC). Porto has no interest in selling unless a very significant offer is made - and the asking price might well scare most clubs away.}


1.) 27 Jul 2016 14:24:04
Thanks Ed. Shame as he is great on Championship Manager, lol!

Z.


2.) 27 Jul 2016 14:58:06
Porto are known for getting huge fee's for players. Look at Hulk and Witsel, 80million euros was reported for the the pair HA!


 

 

18 Jan 2016 00:09:04
I see the Mirror are now covering their arses over their 'Shane Long to Liverpool" non-story by saying that Saints have turned down the £8m offer!

So they sold a few more Sunday papers by breaking it, and are now burying the equivalent of a retraction on Monday!

You got to laugh!

Zeddicus

1.) 18 Jan 2016 03:11:49
Tabloid bullsh*t unfortunately sells papers.

The scary thing for me is that there's a general understanding of how the back pages are made up tripe yet so much belief and legitimacy is placed on the other side for so many people.

It scares me.

{Ed002's Note - It should not scare you - go to the library and educate yourself.}


2.) 18 Jan 2016 03:18:38
I'm not concerned about me. My fear lies with a large portion of the brainwashed, propaganda eating public.

That's what scares me.


3.) 18 Jan 2016 08:37:19
ED002

When you read a journalist writing such headlines in newspapers etc, about a player being the subject of a offer from another club, and representative are involved etc etc, or the player is trying to get out of his own club by forcing a move. And it is 100% fabricated which seem 9 out of 10 are. is that not bordering on slander, deformation of character or being purposely disruptive?

And if so are the players / club in a position to sue?

You hear of other people who are in the media (away from football) a lot pressing over certain claims and stories that came out and were completely untrue, but never footballers etc

Does the same media circus exist in the states in the NFL, basket ball, baseball etc?

Or are the press more careful over there in fear of a law suit being filed over them?

Regards.

{Ed002's Note - Firstly journalists do not write headlines. Secondly there is a big difference between slander/defamation and a story about a transfer that is not correct. Nobody is concerned about being sued.}


4.) 18 Jan 2016 10:08:43
Plus they just say "from a source" to cover their own arses.


5.) 18 Jan 2016 22:09:03
I'm not entirely sure if there'd truly be any legal basis and it'd likely be very hard to prove but a club could claim tortious interference if an transfer story incited a player to go on strike? However, the club would need to prove that the story is bogus and there's no interest from the reported club/ buyer. Honestly though it wouldn't be worth the hassle.


 

 

13 Nov 2015 02:54:12
Hi Eds,

I know the source is the Daily Express (! ), however they have linked us to Timo Horn.

Reason I am posting is that it does seem credible, given the continuing concerns around Migs, and he is apparently available for a buy out clause of €10/£6-£7m.

Have you heard anything about him being a target either in Jan or summer, and does his buy out clause apply to an English club?

Have been hearing about this guy for a couple of years now and wondering why he hasn't been snapped up already?

Thanks

Z.

Zeddicus

{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not aware of Liverpool looking at or talking to Cologne about Timo Horn. I will however say the club has looked at one goalkeeper as I have explained so it is not out of the question. (b) There will not be a "buy out" clause at all. There may be a release clause, I don't know - but it is of no relevance to Liverpool. (c) I am not sure what you mean about being "snapped up already". There was previously a thought that Horn was of interest to Rodgers, so perhaps that is simply being recycled. The player signed a new contract earlier this year and has said he would like to stay with Cologne for his entire career. Volker Struth has said nothing about any interest from Liverpool.}


1.) 13 Nov 2015 11:41:20
Thanks Ed002. The snapped up comment was on the basis that he seems to be generally highly regarded so. wondering why he hadn't been picked up by a larger club that Cologne to date. As you say, maybe he's happy staying where he is.


2.) 13 Nov 2015 13:08:29
Hi Ed. Really sorry that I have overlooked it but what keeper have we looked at please?

{Ed002's Note - Rui Patricio is being looked at again by Liverpool.}


3.) 13 Nov 2015 13:40:16
Cheers ed

He looks vert decent based on the clips I've just seen. Is he viable for a move in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - The summer is a long way off and clubs are looking at lots of different players throughout the season.}

24 Feb 2017 16:54:16
A question for the Eds, in response to some of the GK bashing going on below and Harry's point that we haven't prioritised GKs in the past few windows.

Have we tried and missed out on any GK targets in the last 5 years, to your knowledge? I'm picking the last 5 years as its at least that long ago that Reina started going off the boil. Until the end of Rafa's tenure, at least, I would've pick Reina over pretty much any other GK in the league for several seasons.

Or am I reading too much into this and its really the coach who is the problem?

Zeddicus

{Ed001's Note - we tried to get a few before settling for Mignolet. Begovic springs to mind, but he was not willing to leave Stoke at that time due to setting up a Stoke based charitable foundation at the time. Mignolet was almost a last resort signing to be honest.}


1.) 24 Feb 2017 17:19:25
Thanks Ed001, did we also try for Cech or was that an infamous smokescreen?

Would Begovic be interested in coming to us now, or is he another who now wants to stay in London?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any attempt for Cech. Begovic might be interested, but not sure he would be someone we should try for now.}


2.) 24 Feb 2017 18:13:43
The Begovic ship sailed a long time ago as he is no better than he was when we wanted him in 2013. As for Migs being a last resort, he has played like one as he was at the bottom of the list for a reason.


3.) 24 Feb 2017 18:58:16
I'd rather Begovic than Hart.


4.) 24 Feb 2017 20:45:48
Adrien from WHU would be a worth taking punt.


5.) 24 Feb 2017 21:05:02
Should have gone for Pickford last summer.

2 seasons ago I tipped him as a future star and I am just an armchair football fan. He was so noticeably going to be a top player. It is truly astonishing not one top Premier League team had the foresight to bring him in. Perhaps it was because he wasn't exotic enough? Hope he comes back stronger from his injury. He has the potential to be the best English player in this generation.


6.) 24 Feb 2017 22:34:55
Adrian?
Surely you're jokin?
Arguably the only keeper worse than Migs in the league!


7.) 25 Feb 2017 08:53:57
I rate Butland and Tim Krul.


8.) 25 Feb 2017 11:18:34
Good to see people actually realising the importance of a solid backline and GK along with attackers.


9.) 25 Feb 2017 11:48:26
I wonder if Butland is an option?

Is the general consensus that Karius has the potential, in which case maybe we go after an older keeper who can pass on knowledge as well as doing the job (Begovic? ) or do we buy younger a la Butland or Pickford, for example?


10.) 25 Feb 2017 12:18:41
Butland is too flappy for me. Really not an upgrade on what we have.

I reckon Karius, Ward and Manninger will be the 3 keepers next season anyway. We have committed to Karius now; or at least Klopp has. We have to get used to that I guess. With support and some good coaching, Karius could be great.

There is the problem though. We don't have a good goal keeping coach.


11.) 25 Feb 2017 13:07:24
I've not seen enough of Butland before his injury to comment on him reliably, but if he comes back next season and is as good as everyone says, I'd like us to go for him end of next season if Karius doesn't improve.


12.) 25 Feb 2017 19:06:29
Spot on, MK. BTW, Is it too much to ask that we support the GK Klopp has entrusted with the position before talking about who may replace him if he screws up?

Sorry Ed002, I didn't ask that very well!

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Liverpool - Liverpool has made no approach for the player now or in the past. Why are you so obsessed with him? Try the European pages.}


 

 

01 Feb 2017 13:47:47
Some analysis from the former bitter, Pat Nevin!

I actually found a lot of his points quite rational and reasonable.

Not saying I agree with all of them - high tempo could equally lead to fewer injuries through being fitter through training (LT vs ST) - but some good points nonetheless.

Sakho to Palace confirmed (BT Sport) - £2m loan fee and wages paid in full. Until end of season.

I guess the best deal we could do, £2m contribution towards his cost recovery and his wages off the books.

Zeddicus

1.) 01 Feb 2017 00:30:46
I would rather him given the opportunity to work his way back into the first team. I know bridges have been burnt but it hypothetically costed us at the back, since we had to rely on lovren and klavan for a while. Selling him would have been the only thing I'd be satisfied with


2.) 01 Feb 2017 00:44:33
that'll do, for now.


3.) 01 Feb 2017 01:22:06
FSG will be happy


 

 

15 Jan 2017 14:52:19
National has been withdrawn from our squad?!? What?!?

Seems to imply (per BBC Sport) that's it's to do with ACON dispute!

I thought there was no case to answer there.

Do you have any insight into this Eds?

Thanks 🙂

Zeddicus

{Ed002's Note - No - the club should have clarified the situation with FIFA.}


1.) 15 Jan 2017 16:30:17
Thanks Ed, interesting that autocomplete makes National of Matip!

It does beggar belief that a commercial enterprise of such a size wouldn't have clarified this with FIFA. Let's hope it doesn't haunt us for this match.


2.) 16 Jan 2017 08:11:00
Ed 002. As it is being reported, the club have not had any response from the Cameroon federation. I'm unsure as to how much time was available to resolve this. Perhaps the issue is that we didn't anticipate that the paperwork would not be completed.
Given the backdrop of the club vs. Country disagreement brewing over the WC expansion I can see FIFA using this issue to remind clubs of their power. Hope I'm not being paranoid.

{Ed002's Note - The onus is on the player's club (the secretary) to inform the country's FA and FIFA that he is retiring from the International game or injured and not available for selection. It, and Liverpool in general, has nothing whatsoever to do with the expansion of the World Cup.}

There seems to be an injury jinx on decent RBs at Liverpool, with their careers being blighted by injury. First Rob Jones, now Flanno who, of course, didn't get the chance to reach the heights of RJ due to 2 years + lost to injury.

I just hope TAA gets a bit of luck as he is showing great promise.

And I of course wish Flanno all the best. I hope he gets his chance and is able to get back to the form that forced him into our side in the first place.

I would've thought that Phillip Max was more likely as he's a LB, however there is also a Maximilian Philip who plays as a midfielder for Freiberg! Both of them are 23, so who knows which one our interest lies in, if either! Maximilian is the chap that Drigan is referring to as he is a contemporary, both in terms of age and position, to Timo Werner.

I wonder if the transfer committee got it wrong all those years ago, and we were actually, for example, after Poulsen Christian, an amazing attacking midfielder, rather than Christian Poulsen, an amazing donkey?! Who knows!

Yes, he will be arriving on 17th July and departing on 19th July, having taken in the stadium tour. We currently have no confirmed bookings for hotels, although I am led to understand that he will be arriving via a local taxi service.

Fulham seem to have a decent youth system, whether it's youth scouting or development. Recently we have Dembele and Sessengnon.

Are they widely regarded as having a good setup, eds, or is it just luck? If the former, what do they do that we don't!

Thanks

Z.

Zeddicus

{Ed002's Note - Sessegnons - there is a twin brother being watched by another Premier League side. Fulham took Dembele from PSG at a time when Manchester United and Bayern Munich were interested.

Generally, in answer to your question, London clubs benefit from two multi-tiered clubs that have developed many players who have gone on to play at the highest level - Chelsea, Spurs and West Ham have always had a good relationship with one in particular - Senrab.}

Harry, read Carras column in the paper today (unfortunately he writes for the Fail, but anyway! ) I'm certain he knows the situation a billion times better than you and he said Alonso left as Rafa didn't attempt to mend the bridges he had burned the previous season. If he had Alonso would've stayed, accordingly to a player who played with him and who is a Liverpool legend.

We need Stewie's multiverse drive to check out that universe. Ideally that is also a universe where Rafa patched up his differences with Xabi.
