As discussed about the couts talks in London. Is the general consensus for him to leave in January; or is the deal to be done for the summer.
Many thanks.

benny baller

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement on him moving at this time Benny. Personally I would think Liverpool would like to keep him until the summer if he is commited unless a replacement can be found.}

1.) 27 Nov 2017 17:40:50
He looks anything but committed at the club unfortunately. A deal done swiftly before the beginning of December deadline would be beneficial to all at this point.

2.) 27 Nov 2017 17:49:03
He is clearly not commited though ed. let's hope he moves on and we bring in Mayer or Draxler.

3.) 27 Nov 2017 17:50:32
thanks ed. ill ask again friday to see if things have changed.

4.) 27 Nov 2017 18:49:08
Evening Ed002.

You mentioned the deadline Barcelona set regarding Couthino, think the deadline has passed?

{Ed002's Note - It is not a deadline. Barcelona want agreement this month as someone heading the discussions is leaving the club and will be moving to another club. At that point, they will regroup and look at alternatives, but the interest in PC won't suddenly disappear. They have other options and they have to look to them.}

5.) 27 Nov 2017 19:35:40
I would get rid and pull out everything too get rabiot of psg he is a beast an perfect replacement for Can an we have other players who can replace coutihno.

6.) 28 Nov 2017 09:39:30
We have a replacement for can, we need a replacement for Coutinho.

7.) 28 Nov 2017 09:56:16
Get rid.
He’s sublimely talented but can’t be bothered for us anymore so what’s the point in keeping him? we have seen the best of him and we won’t get it back.
His performances of late has reminded me a bit of when we first got him from inter, the odd flash of brilliance but mostly ineffective and inconsistent.
On current form for us he’s worth about the same we bought him for but to Barcelona he’s worth more than 10X that amount so it’s a no brainier to take the money and run and spend it on the defence.
Not to mention his poor attitude will be effecting team morale negativively.

8.) 28 Nov 2017 15:38:25
Drop him out of the squad. The attitude that he has shown in the last couple of matches doesn’t warrant him a place. There are other players who can take his place. Playing him is similar to playing with 10 men because his contribution is not good.

9.) 28 Nov 2017 18:08:33
Aren't him and can taking a big risk in world cup year. For me if th3u haven't forced there moves by January, then I believe atleast coutinho will perform a lot alot a lot better through the end of the season. He's not irriplacable in that Brazil team, especially with players such as Willian. Not say he's bett2e but if he's on better form it is the rw after all.

10.) 28 Nov 2017 18:35:03
The sickener is a couple of months back we could have got 100M for him, whereas now we won't get anything near that.

11.) 28 Nov 2017 19:49:38
I have been in the camp criticizing Coutinho, but I do think we're underplaying a bit how the change into central midfield can affect his game. he's not got the engine or the physique to battle away in the middle of the park and then still have gas in the tank to perform in the attacking third where he is most effective.

12.) 29 Nov 2017 18:15:18
Yeah faith that's also why he was actually converted to a right winger because hacking in the middle isn't his game.

He's not a quick think like everyone thinks. He does need that time the wing allows.



04 Jun 2017 12:16:19
All I'll say is don't write off VVD just yet 😎.

benny baller

1.) 04 Jun 2017 12:24:33
Come on mate don't leave us hangin. do elaborate.?

2.) 04 Jun 2017 12:53:05
I reckon we just offer £60m for VVD and Bertrand.
Take it or leave it.

3.) 04 Jun 2017 14:01:46
They'll leave it, we're in a sellers market at moment.

{Ed025's Note - very true freshst..

4.) 04 Jun 2017 14:10:21
Can I ask the eds. Who do expect us to sign. Salah and Robertson sound great to me. Grey I'm not sure on, don't know much about him or solanke. Do you expect the latter two to be in first team squad? Thanks. Your insight is fantastic. Nice to hear people who know their stuff. P. s. Give me a snug fitting pair of gola over fancy uncomfortable Nike any day.

{Ed025's Note - i would say at this stage salah and robertson would seem the most likely jonny but im sure there will be others that will be kept under wraps and come as a bit of a surprise mate..being the youngest in the family i was the king of the cast offs and so most of my footwear was "nearly new", but i must admit i looked good in my sisters red high heels.. :)

5.) 04 Jun 2017 14:56:56
Brilliant Ed025.

6.) 04 Jun 2017 16:01:41
Don't normally moan but Jesus that's so uninspiring.

{Ed025's Note - if you dont moan farno then im afraid your on the wrong site mate.. :)

7.) 04 Jun 2017 16:29:26
Ha ha thanks ed.

8.) 04 Jun 2017 18:44:36
love ed25.



13 May 2016 07:01:47
Hi ed002. Just curious if you know of any talks between Liverpool and any clubs on transfers, selling or buying. I'm sure clubs constantly discuss player availability, I'm just wondering if there's anything with some potential.

benny baller

{Ed002's Note - Obviously talks happen on a regular basis and often agents are involved in those discussions. Liverpool has made an approach to Udinese as has been explained. At any one moment in time I cannot easily say what is happening. The club has looked at a lot of players and will be deciding where the efforts need to be concentrated. But they also have a very bloated squad and a number of players returning from loan which means there needs to be a significant cull. And to complicate matters further Liverpool will lose players to at least two major tournaments over the summer, and perhaps three. I have tried to drag back on the reins where folks are going overboard with these "offers" being made for several players everyday which they are asking about. Take Horn as an example, Liverpool has looked at him but they have not yet made an offer - perhaps they will. Goetze has been the focus of much attention - if Liverpool want to buy him they need to wander along with their cheque book in hand - but they have not yet made an offer. And with a couple of games to play Liverpool will not want to be disruptive to the squad.}

1.) 13 May 2016 10:19:39
Thank you ed. appreciate your time.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

2.) 13 May 2016 12:55:18
Ed002, this might be a really daft question - apologies if it is - but if someone in the club makes an offer for a player in another club does it become fairly common knowledge amongst the players? Is that what you mean by not wanting to be disruptive to the squad? Anyway, I totally agree that the only thing we should be focused on at the moment is sunday and next wednesday, then we can sort out the transfers in and out after that.

{Ed002's Note - Generally yes. But keep in mind that in most cases football players are not very bright so it doesn't necessarily bother them.}

3.) 14 May 2016 22:19:58
Haha, fair enough. Point taken.



18 Feb 2016 10:27:34
Eds. Has there been any news on Stewart's injury?

benny baller

{Ed001's Note - waiting on scan results but they believe it is ligament damage so a couple of months I believe.}

1.) 18 Feb 2016 11:27:45
Such shame. The last thing to happen. I hope it's nothing serious. He looks a top class prospect.

2.) 18 Feb 2016 12:22:30
Definitely a shame, he looked like he was settling in to the first team quite well. Could be a valuable member of the squad with his versatility as he can play midfield and in a number of positions in defence. Hope its not too bad and he can carry on where he left off.

3.) 18 Feb 2016 13:12:06
Gutted, he's been brilliant high hopes for him.

4.) 18 Feb 2016 16:28:06
agree with all the sentiments, also he misses the league cup final, I do hope the lads career dosent get blighted with injuries.

5.) 18 Feb 2016 22:43:24
Better than milner an hendo tonight they were shocking.

6.) 19 Feb 2016 13:43:17
i agree with the other posts, the lad would have got better and better, what a shame for the lad he was making his mark he was looking better with each game and i was looking forward to see him play more and more, let's just hope its not as bad as they think and he comes back sooner rather than later.

7.) 20 Feb 2016 14:06:01
Not sure why so many people clicked disagree he's been brilliant when he has played must be blind fans clicking dislike about Stewart but I agree with above he would get better and better plus better than Allen and milner.



19 Jan 2016 10:31:29
Hi eds is there any truth in this?
Juventus have turned down a €60m offer from Liverpool for striker Alvaro Morata, according to reports in Gazzetta dello Sport.
I imagine just nonsense as its so random, but thought I'd ask.

benny baller

{Ed002's Note - Morata remains of serious interest to Real Madrid who would like to re-sign the player but Juventus are looking for a way to keep him away from Real Madrid and unless a replacement is found he will stay (at least until the summer). And the player is by all accounts happy to stay. There is however interest in him from London.}

The winner of the charity cup game will win "The Matt Hawker Cup" after ed001s best friend who just died from leukaemia. I do hope we can do this once a year :)

benny baller

1.) 12 Dec 2017 16:02:10
Fair play. let's hope its a great game in memory of Ed1's friend.

2.) 12 Dec 2017 16:32:08
Sorry to hear about your friend Ed001. A nice thing to do this event in memory of him!

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, I just hope my team does me proud now.}

3.) 12 Dec 2017 18:04:28
You can count on us ed1. BTW, what abt starting line up, formation and tactics? I suggest we go all out attack .

{Ed001's Note - I am counting on you to understand fluid dynamics and use that as our tactical base to flow over, around and under the opposition......}

4.) 12 Dec 2017 18:24:24
Hope we can do your friend Matt proud Ed and that the match for this trophy becomes an annual event for years to come (oh and like watching Brazil are the first winners of the cup for you sir ⚽️🇧🇷👍)

{Ed001's Note - no pressure on you like but it does mean a lot!}

5.) 12 Dec 2017 19:29:52
The only fluid dynamics us lot know involves beer 😂.

6.) 12 Dec 2017 19:38:52
With your tactical genius we can’t go wrong 😜.

7.) 12 Dec 2017 21:53:35
are there enough posters frow switzerland ed to play a match there? ;)
looking forward to the livestream, I'm sure you'll get slated for the squad rotation ed.

8.) 13 Dec 2017 08:25:23
Or you know, Irish posters v English. Just saying.

9.) 13 Dec 2017 08:51:01
I know there was an entry fee for players but if other posters want to support is there a JustGiving or something?

10.) 13 Dec 2017 18:19:07
How about wools v scousers. Nah what am I thinking, we'd never get 11 scousers on here.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 20:34:24
Truly astonishing how the community of this site has grown and how something like this can now take place. Huge thumbs up to benny baller and everyone taking part. Shame that i am both on holiday at the time and almost certainly too bad at football to play😂.

{Ed001's Note - you sound perfectly suited to Ed002's team to me.}

Easy win for ed1s Brazilian Army 💪.

No chance gaffer, I’m reliable at the back like Phil Neal (or is that Neil from the young ones🤢) and like Cafu going forward (or is that cat food 🤔) .
We can’t loose, we’ve got 23Carra and MK Scouser. with the Raver as skipper - the 2018 invincibles.

Its just all become real. at 31 am i passed it compared to othe players? Every team needs experiance!

{Ed001's Note - I think you are one of the younger members of my squad mate. We are going for experience and talent over youth and enthusiasm. Plus we have MKS to write the match report and lie about how brilliant you all played....}

7.) 10 Dec 2017 21:34:29
Would i lie Ed? 😂

Great charity choice by the way, both of you guys. Looking forward to scoring 6 goals against that mob though Ed001 😉.

Liverpool live chat, 7pm tonight.
The Charity teams' players will be selected by the managing eds (Ed001 and Ed002).
see you there!

Ed001 please play Harry as a DM, let him show us all how it’s done. 👍.

{Ed001's Note - that would be an unfair advantage, be like getting a ringer in.}

2.) 10 Dec 2017 11:36:13
When did the playerd get decided and when/ where is it being played?

{Ed001's Note - tonight we are picking.}

3.) 10 Dec 2017 11:46:21
Sorry I am well confused is this an actual football match or is it on PlayStation I've read the posts and confused myself more.

4.) 10 Dec 2017 12:18:46
It's a real match in the summer. In which we are getting together to raise money with either eds picking a charity each.
The first 30 to apply have been passed on to the eds for them to scrutinise and pick their teams, live tonight.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 12:52:41
Harry has to wear a full real madrid strip embrazoned with 'kovacic'.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 17:48:34
OK thanks for clearing that up. I look forward to watching. I recon Harry for man of match.



09 Dec 2017 17:11:11
The 30 players are selected.
When 002 gets 10 minutes, a live chat will be setup in which ed001 and ed002 face-off in selecting who will be in their 15 for next years charity game!
Do I want to be in ed001s team with scouse passion, or 002s with his disciplined tactical nouse. I can't decide!
Stay tuned.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 18:02:42
Ed 01 will use his contacts and get Lfc scouts watching. If you’re a defender that isn’t a camel, there’s a chance you’ll have a new career!

3.) 09 Dec 2017 18:38:35
Hopefully 7pm tomorrow if all goes to plan. It may be ed00 speaking on behalf on 002. He's an extremely busy man.

Cheers Benny.
I think I've emailed you (my hotmail is playing up) .
Please let me know either way?
Thanks. 😎

8.) 10 Dec 2017 07:31:08
Can I just say what we're all thinking? Who uses hotmail anymore?

{Ed001's Note - I think you should take that back. Most of the people on here don't think!}

9.) 10 Dec 2017 09:34:49
You didn't get back to me benny, there's your chance gone to see my silky skills plus the opportunity for some of the regular posters to try and kick lumps out of me.



09 Dec 2017 12:46:56
Can any eds or posters clear up this rule. Morata has just done a shocking dive against west ham. He also did one in his last game which was just as embarrassing. My question is why hasn't he got a ban but niasse did?
Is it only if you win the penalty? Because both of morata dives were waived away?
How does the rule work?

benny baller

1.) 09 Dec 2017 13:08:22
He could be punished retrospectively -like Niasse.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 13:08:47
Benny thought it was down to the panel to give retrospective action, but if the ref gives a yellow there could be no further action. I also think that they only punish if the ref has been decieved.

3.) 09 Dec 2017 13:33:17
Aren't there some kind of rules about whether he writes In his report if he saw it or not?

4.) 09 Dec 2017 13:38:48
For me it's ridiculous the way a red can be recinded but a yellow can't be turned into a red retospectively. The officials can't see everything and the more help they can get the better, also players will eventually stop trying to con the ref cause the negatives out weigh the positives.

5.) 09 Dec 2017 14:02:53
He can only be punished retrospectively for “successfully deceiving” the ref. The penalty incident last week involving Morata that I saw was a nailed on penalty where he controlled the ball back to goal and the keeper nailed him from behind and nothing was given.

6.) 09 Dec 2017 16:37:36
If the ref hasn’t been deceived by the dive then he should be booking him for diving?

He won everything there was to win, is regarded as one of the all time greats, and did it all without training hard, partying and having fun.

Sorry macca, but since the end of February, I only take ed002 as gospel now.
I think you're wrong on all 3 fronts. No naby, no vvd. Maybe, a tiny slither of couts staying.
Everyone else can get excited, like they have done after previous posts. But my heart can't take this all over again.

Got to disagree on Howe mate. He's brought them through the leagues and deserves to be at Bournemouth even if they go down. We sit and slag managers like moyes fat sam hogson pardew pulis for all parking the bus. Howe at least wants his team to play football. He has the right mix between holloways blackpool all out attack and the ones I just mentioned.

I think the midfield, of ox gini and hendo is our best. It seems the right balance to me. Bit of skill pace and strength. Hendo was magnificent for 75 minutes today. However yes, once lallana is fit, he would replace gini I agree.

Players bollocked Klopp for taking salah off when winning 1-0. So now you want him to do it at 0-0?
The hypocrisy is astounding.
Klopp had his best starting 11, maybe Gomez in for lovren. But hands down his best 11 we know off. Didn't score. Had the Fab Four. Didn't score. Looked lethargic and carrying pebbles in pockets, but that's what 99% of you all wanted.
To me two things have been proven, 1. It's nice to have a keeper that can come and catch a ball and 2. Rotation is key. Rafa was the worst for it, his stint wasn't too bad eh.
