Hi Eds,

Is Ryan Kent still seen to be part of the longer term plans of the club, as far as you are aware?

Seen a rumour of Bournemouth being interested in him.




{Ed001's Note - not really mate, he has not done enough, sadly. I expect him to be moved on sooner rather than later.}

1.) 22 Jun 2017 08:56:07
that would be the right thing for the player I feel, salah arriving would not make it any easier for him to break through to the 1st team, I wish him well.



05 Jun 2017 21:44:13
Hi Eds, I believe Lucas's contract is up later this month. Are there any rumours as to whether he will sign (or be given? ) a new one, or head off on a free? Thanks Z.


{Ed025's Note - nothing on him at the moment mate..

1.) 05 Jun 2017 22:13:12
No probs, fingers crossed something can be worked out as I think he still has a lot to offer as an experienced squad player and one of the few players to have played for Liverpool regularly in the CL!



05 Jun 2017 12:08:39
Hi Eds, I've been browsing around for transfer links and one name keeps popping up which hasn't been covered recently on the boards (not unless its been misspelled as the last post per the search was last summer) .

Mattia de Sciglio.

I've been a big fan of his for a while, and his name does crop up hear ever year. Like Pereira he's a RB who can also play LB, so offers that utility.

The Echo has him listed as a potential for us. Have you heard of any rumours about us having him watched or approaching Milan or his representatives?




{Ed001's Note - not a thing, be unlikely a newly minted side like Milan would let their better players leave.}

1.) 05 Jun 2017 12:54:04
Fair enough, good point on Milan's riches!



{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

2.) 05 Jun 2017 13:45:22
De Sciglio has actually sorta regressed in the past few years. One of my best buds is a die hard Milan fan, and he says that De Sciglio has fallen behind some of their younger talents, and could be headed to Juve to bolster their rotation ranks.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 14:27:14
Interesting, Drigan, good to know.

I'll drop him off my "keep an eye out come transfer season" list!



02 May 2017 08:43:27
Hi Eds, BBC Sport reporting, via Spanish site, that we are resigned to losing Couts. Is that really the feeling at the club, or is it just press speculation?



{Ed001's Note - the club are not resigned to it, no.}

1.) 02 May 2017 09:08:05
Hi edd001,
If you had to say? Do you think Phil will leave in summer. Also what positions do you see us bringing in and players we will try to ship out, I understand if you'd prefer not to answer if your busy.
Thanks to you and all the edd's for your hard work anyhow.

{Ed001's Note - I can't say because it mainly depends on us qualifying for the Champions League.

Positions are the same ones I keep saying, fullbacks and left wing/forward.

Outs will be some of the kids that haven't got through. Stewart is likely to go and probably Lucas, Randall, Moreno. Also Ojo and Sturridge have uncertain futures, though Sturridge is only likely to go because of his big wages and injury history. The club are not looking to push Sturridge out, it is just they will listen to offers.}

2.) 02 May 2017 09:52:42
Thanks edd.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

3.) 02 May 2017 10:18:02
Ed, is the situation with Sturridge purely to do with finances and injury? I realize it is only a short period now, but is there a window for Sturridge to sway the club to keep him?

{Ed001's Note - he can choose to stay if he wants to.}

4.) 02 May 2017 10:32:40
But if he chooses to stay ed won't that hamper us bringing in another forward?

{Ed001's Note - no, we are looking for a left winger really, who can also cover forward.}

5.) 02 May 2017 10:58:20
Brandt as an example. So Studge could have a futre with us after all.

6.) 02 May 2017 11:32:21
Hi Ed001, is Lucas a very strong possibility to leave, or is there a growing likelihood he will stay on a new contract.

I've liked him for a number of years and I still feel he has a lot to offer as a DM, especially with more games next year and the ongoing problems Hendo is having. I liked the balance to the Can/ Lucas/ Wiji midfield we've had in the last few games.

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say as it is his personal choice.}

7.) 02 May 2017 11:52:31
Do you know if Studg is keen too stay?

{Ed001's Note - I believe so. Though the right offer might tempt him to go.}

8.) 02 May 2017 12:09:52
Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome Zed.}

9.) 02 May 2017 12:46:11
I think for Lucas that game time on the pitch would be a factor for him on whether he stays or not.

given his age and that he is coming towards the back end of his career.

Even If Sturridge was fully fit I don't think he would be Klopp's first choice striker.
Whether he would be content on the bench being used as an impact player?

It could benefit the club and player as hopefully we have champions league football to look forward to.
A couple of decent cameos from Sturridge and one of the big boys could come calling.

10.) 02 May 2017 13:32:55
All in all when studge is fit he is easily our best striker. A half fit studge yesterday nearly secured it.

11.) 02 May 2017 13:42:51
Thanks ed lad! Much appreciated!

{Ed001's Note - everything Sturridge has said and done has suggested he wants to stay. The problem is that he has yet to see any genuine offers down on the table to tempt him, so it could all change if the right one comes along.}

12.) 02 May 2017 14:28:07
That is of course true.

Would you want him too stay ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

13.) 02 May 2017 14:45:09
Lemar please. Quality 50 mil. That'll do for the summer.

14.) 02 May 2017 15:49:06
I would love studge to smash a couple of goals before end of season. Then have an awesome preseason and not get injured once next year and with out doubt if that were to happen then he would smash 20 goals easy is this possible I hope so cause a fit studge is unplayable.

15.) 02 May 2017 16:21:29
Thanks mate.

Me too, he genuinely seems too be a nice lad who just wants too play footy. I feel sorry for him as he's quality when he plays.

{Ed001's Note - on a good day he is completely unstoppable and he is not one of these knobheads who throw their money about and live it up when they should be professional. It is such a shame he has suffered the injury problems he has.}

16.) 02 May 2017 16:27:41
Purely due to his injury record he may not get an offer that suits I would have thought. Can't see him taking a step up from us, especially if we can the offer champs league. He's too good for some of the clubs you hear about, hope the lad gets some luck and opts to stay with us too.

17.) 02 May 2017 16:30:27

It doesn't look like he's living the high life with all the booze and stuff. Also looks like he values family highly.

Wouldn't mind if he stays, especially if he enjoys being at the club.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't drink as far as I know.}

18.) 02 May 2017 18:10:45
has he always had these injury problems, or did city and Chelsea have other reasons to let him go.

{Ed001's Note - he had niggles and time out, he chose to leave both clubs, rather than being let go.}

19.) 02 May 2017 21:10:57
Ed i've been thinking about this situation, Surely he will leave as its clear Klopp doesn't like playing him. Also he is quite fixed in his posistions and doesn't seem mobile enough to suit the system Klopp trys to set up with. Do you know Klopps thoughts on him? He must be on high wages so why would we keep a player with his injury record and wages who isn't first choice and will likely be behind Origi Ings and Firmino?

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry, why do you think Klopp doesn't like playing him? Fixed in his positions? Are we still talking about Sturridge here?}

7.) 01 Sep 2016 20:43:10

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.

As we've added so many new posters of late, and people who dip in and out of the boards over time, I wondered whether it would be worth listing previous names? I've always been Zed76, and I've been here around 5 years. A couple of the regulars that I know have had the various nom de plume as below:

MK Scouser = East Midlands Scouser and (originally when I joined) AdamYNWA

If you know me = (SO MANY! ) DegenerationX, Kova_kova_kovavic, ______ (fill in blanks), but orignally HarryScouser (when I joined) .

Any others care to post/ admit to their nefarious past?!

Although I dip in and out of posting, I remain in my original form from before official accounts were around.

My jolliness (be it naive or not) and my username came from the day it was announced that Liverpool would not go into administration. Harry might not be too 'jolly' about that considering that it was tied to the arrival of FSG.

7.) 28 Jun 2017 13:58:01

10.) 28 Jun 2017 19:44:03
Ah, was wondering what happened to redohio. I've always been ra1969 since the beginning. Even though I was born in 1960, 69 seemed more appealing at the time.



21 Jun 2017 16:38:54
Hi Eds,

A question about players who are devoted to Islam, especially in light of Mo Salah joining us too.

I think our first Muslim player was Titi Camara from memory, and we've had a few down the years, most recently Kolo Toure and in our current team Emre Can, Sadio Mane and now Mo Salah.

What is the impact of Ramadan on the performance of Muslim players? Given how scientific our game has now become, is there actually a drop off in performance, however marginal, in performance during that month?

I know that in the next couple of years, Ramadan overlaps with the end of the season, so I felt this was an interesting question given our increasing contingent.

I'm not so 'worried' about not eating, but not being able to take liquids during the day, particularly in May/ June as the temperature rises, must have an effect on performance?

How have Liverpool's Muslim players coped in the past?

Thought this would be a nice diversion from the usual transfer merry-go-round!




{Ed001's Note - it is impossible to give an answer as they are individuals. For starters, some are given dispensation to eat and drink during the day.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 17:17:26
As a muslim, I've also thought about it. Because fasting in the summer is very difficult. And once you add playing and training it becomes all the more difficult. But as ed001 has said it actually depends on an individual, just like in cricket Hashim Amla scored a think a triple century while fasting. May be some of the athletes don't fast during Ramadan because it becomes almost impossible for them ( I may be wrong) .

2.) 21 Jun 2017 17:42:22
I played professional rugby in France for more than a few years. We had a few Muslim players in my teams and as the ed 01 suggested they were given "dispensation". The more devout then added on days at the end of Ramadan to make up for the days that they ate and drank during that period, specifically for match days only. The coaches were sympathetic to the players during the week for training.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 17:56:01
Dispensation makes sense. Sensible appraoch.

4.) 21 Jun 2017 21:13:44
I played in the youth bundesliga and we had a few muslim players. It all depended on how strict their parents were. Some had this dispensation as stated and others went through with it.

I remember beeing on our Summer-Training thing where we had practice all day and two or three guys didn't drink at all.



21 Jun 2017 16:04:34
Sakho + £45m for VVD and Bertrand?

If only this was FM!




21 Jun 2017 15:58:03
Bit of a leftfield thought, but I could envisage Origi leaving this transfer window. Looking at our striking options:

Firmino is our first choice currently and is a great player, but not the best finisher. A Klopp favourite and his flexibility to play in a number of forward roles means he's going nowhere.

Sturridge is our best finisher when fit. I worry that he's lost some confidence in his body, but that can still return. I doubt we would sell him as he is our best finisher and we'd likely have to take a low sum as a result of his injuries.

Ings, so unlucky. However, he strikes me as a Klopp player, willing to give everything, so I reckon he will get another season to prove himself and prove he is over his injuries.

Solanke, new kid on the block, just recruited, going nowhere for a couple of seasons whilst he develops.

Origi, still very young (21?) and has had quite a few chances this season. there's something about him that says he could be very good, but not exceptional.

My gut feel is Origi will leave.

If we sign someone as a first team striker (Auba probably not, Lacazette? ) then Studge may well leave too.

Interesting to see what happens.

Decimus, I asked about De Sciglio a few weeks back and Ed002 said we had not shown any interest at that point, possibly this has now changed?

I like him as he can play left and right, and is a good young prospect ho already has a lot of first team experience (and he's awesome on Champ Manager! ) .

However, one of the posters had said that he had stalled a bit recently.


{Ed002's Note - Napoli and particularly Juventus are keen.}

I don't really want to dwell too much on other teams, but I disagree that Chelsea were a mid-table team when Conte took over. Chelsea had finished in the top 4 every season since 2002/ 3 when Conte took over, except for the blip in the prior season, including winning the title 3 times in that run. Chelsea were a top 4 team that had one bad season when Conte took over, and he has won the title with a large number of the players who previously finished mid table.

Liverpool, much as I hate to admit it, were a upper-mid table team when Klopp took over, other than a 'blip' in 18 months earlier when they finished 2nd. We all know we have never won the premier league.

I maintain that Klopp's challenge in bringing the title to Liverpool is more difficult than Conte's in bringing the title back to Chelsea.


{Ed002's Note - Ranieri then.}

Higgins, no abuse as the concept of this makes sense. Also a chance for our youngsters like Solanke and Origi to learn via training. IN an ideal world, the older player then ends up on the coaching staff in years to come. A scenario like Gary Mac could be win-win-win for older player, club and younger players.

The only 'however' is that I don't think Defoe specifically actually works with our style of play. I may be mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong as I've not really watched Defoe over the years) but he isn't a pressing player? Nor particularly interchangeable, as our front line of Salah, Mane and Firmino would be. Therefore, if we need to change our style of play to accommodate him, it may not work out.
