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.

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.}



13 Dec 2015 21:43:39
Time up mignolet. Tell me we are scouting potential replacements eds?

benny baller

{Ed001's Note - teams are always scouting replacements.}

1.) 14 Dec 2015 07:11:32
Hasn't Mignolet been offered a new contract?

2.) 14 Dec 2015 08:18:22
New contracts don't mean much do you think De gea will not leave.

3.) 14 Dec 2015 11:07:14
Is it not time to put Bogdan between the sticks?

4.) 14 Dec 2015 14:08:19
One things for sure lads, if Mignolet has been given a new contract he definitely dropped it :)

5.) 14 Dec 2015 14:09:15
They are negotiating with Mignolet. It's admirable that Klopp trusts his players absolutely but as the season goes on, and he sees repeated mistakes, he will surely re-think on whether to keep some players or not. I think Mignolet is in that list.

6.) 14 Dec 2015 14:14:00
Which goalkeepers are we interested in? I remember seeing that Rui Partricio has been watched but nothing else.

With no house being bought, one can only assume naby was on Germany's version of " A place in the clouds ".

benny baller

1.) 21 Aug 2017 22:40:34
I think if couts left then we would go for naby.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 22:49:07
We need Naby Keita as well as Coutinho!
Schalke 04 beat Leipzig 2-0 at weekend. Schalke manager said after game. It was like playing against 12 men because of Keita. He's two players in one and absolutely brilliant.
Break the bank for him Liverpool!

3.) 21 Aug 2017 22:59:28
We have gone for him 3 times door shut firmly in our face.

4.) 21 Aug 2017 23:34:42
we would go for naby? am I crazy or haven't we already gone for him 3 times and failed.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 01:16:00
We should try one more time for Naby. Naby, Coutinho and Hando/ Can in a midfield 3 will be boss. Losing faith with Gini again after his last 3 performances. Gone missing in each and every one of them. He is a good utility player to have but Keita has the potential to be world class.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 02:43:17
Lepzig have said he's not for sale - and money is not important. It doesn't matter how many times we go in for him, or for how much. Why don't people understand that?

7.) 22 Aug 2017 07:59:26
Because they're thick?

8.) 22 Aug 2017 08:11:05
Liver-la, did you watch the game?! Are you sure the Schalke manager didn't say it was like we had twelve men with Keita! The first half especially, all he did was pass to Schalke! Lol

Before I get bashed I'm not saying he is a bad player because of one bad performance I'm just stating that he did not perform well in that game!

9.) 22 Aug 2017 08:23:01
Jensxn, I don't know, mate. The only other reason I would think is that people are standing on the saying of "Hope springs eternal".



19 Aug 2017 17:53:02
36 more 1-0s an I'll be happy. Get in.

benny baller

1.) 19 Aug 2017 17:56:42
Yeah man! That is what matters at the end of the day!

2.) 19 Aug 2017 18:00:36
Imagine that. This defence and keeper breaking the premier league record for clean sheets and goals conceded. Don't think there would be enough humble pie in the world for me too eat.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 18:30:17
You got more chance by PC staying.

4.) 19 Aug 2017 18:42:45
A win, a clean sheet and two wins in a row right now. What's not to like?



15 Aug 2017 11:14:35
After a little more reading, I've discovered that there's a whole lot more to the stoke 12 year old, and I don't think we can help.
For those that don't know :
- stoke had some sort of contract with the boys parents, to pay for his education.
- the summer Liverpool asked him to switch to anfield ( with a similar contract ) was the summer new PL rules came in.
- the rules introduced, were to deter what many clubs, if not all, have been doing; and they were that if you pay for one academy players private education, you have to pay for every academy players!
- that soon becomes a massive amount, and after getting everything all clarified as that ( the boys already made the move and started his private education ) Liverpool decided to pull out of paying for his education.
- as far as I can make out, he is still at the club, but not allowed to play competitively until stoke are paid £49,000 ( for which I assume was what they paid into his education maybe )

So god knows what the resolution is, I'm not a lawyer.
But my personal conclusion is that I don't think we can help, even with a funding page.
If Liverpool paid the 49k to stoke, maybe they then have to pay for every one of their academy players, or maybe it would just clear the lad to play for another team other than stoke.
Either way the club would still have the problem of the lad being in debt to his now private education.
I kind of wish the PL would make an exception, seeing as the new rules came in at the unfortunate timing of the lads move, however Liverpool should have been aware, so I do believe they're culprit.

Maybe Liverpool can pay stoke the compensation so at least the lad can play football. An then maybe when 16 and eligible to sign a contract, we could see his family reimbursed.
Really tough one to call, and a really sticky situation, but once again due to our neglect.

As I said, I don't think a funding page will help, I just can only hope for the lad the PL can help out.
(002 I believe I'm close in what I've said, feel free to edit anything you think is wrong )

benny baller

{Ed002's Note - The education part at Stoke is incorrect.}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:44:46
I tend to think the best thing any reasonable person would do in this situation is make a fair Part 36 offer to the family and settle with them, then pay the £49k to Stoke, to at least allow this lad to play football again. The FA have found us guilty and we really are not covering ourselves in glory by dragging this situation out, the fact that the FA have found against us would be very good evidence in a court of law.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 12:33:35
Stoke haven't paid his education fee. I last read that the kid is constantly being threatened with being kicked out due to none payment.
The 49k or w. e was to cover the academy costs at Stoke for him.



14 Aug 2017 22:55:05
Someone made a great point, and after I read the report on the 12 year old, and I trust it's all spot on ed002? I have set up a just giving page for the lad.
If our owners won't sort it out, Liverpool fans will, because we are the greatest.
Before I post links, I just would like ed002 to confirm everything is right in the report.

benny baller

{Ed002's Note - I have not read any reports, but the situation is as I have explained BB.}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 23:14:26
Okay mate. Will look more into it tomorrow.
Side note, Liverpool to win 3-1.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 23:29:14
Im going with another 3-3.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 23:32:40
Great idea, it really hurts me, to see our club act in that way. Benny, could you provide the link please? I would happily contribute and at least try to make everything a little better for the family.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 00:21:45
I remember hearing we were in for that Southampton centre back around May and that we were his first choice etc.
I was quite happy with that and looking forward to him sorting is out at the back.
Now I've been a fan for over 30 years so was aware of previous shady transfer moves we've made in the past including knowing we were banned for an issue with a kid - when the news broke that we had apologised for a potential illegal approach of that same Southampton player, I literally went weak for a moment. I mean what the f are the people behind the scenes doing? If this was most of us in our jobs, our heads would roll.
It's beyond unprofessional and I would hate it but would understand if we got banned from all transfers for a year. Fines don't damage, bans do.
It has now cost us at least one decent transfer, maybe two if Keita was also an illegal approach - that one is debatable though.
Thanks to the editors here who have kept us informed. Very much appreciated guys.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 00:37:40
Please benny, turn it in will you.

6.) 15 Aug 2017 00:10:14
Yep let's dig deep.
Nice one Benny.

7.) 15 Aug 2017 00:16:06
hope you raise enough to help the family get a decent lawyer Benny, it might make the club wake up a little bit seeing it's own fans helping out a family they are taking to court as well. PR disaster.

8.) 15 Aug 2017 00:34:44
Great post mate. i will definitely pay towards this!

9.) 14 Aug 2017 23:56:43
Nice idea.

Think we need to be a little bit careful about interfering with an on-going court case.

10.) 15 Aug 2017 10:09:32
Rons right, but as long as your careful with your wording Benny you will be ok.



14 Aug 2017 17:02:47
In reference to vvd. Time to write it off.
Hear me out.

There must of been a time when we decided if we were going to go back on our word, and take the egg cleanly on our face.

I believe it was at the time of vvd putting in a tr. we had to decide then, he clearly pleaded for Liverpool with his subtle comment.
Isn't it clear what we've decided?
I mean if we were prepared for the egg on face, then there would be no need to wait? We would of bitten the bullet by now?

I can see no clear reason for the delay of a bid, since the TR. So to me, we really aren't going to buy him.

benny baller

1.) 14 Aug 2017 17:16:31
Southampton haven't accepted his TR so why would we bid for him? Until they do accept that he's leaving we won't bid.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 17:18:52
It is plausible that the club will wait for another club to bid and await Southamptons response. If they show an indication to sell we will then step in and, in theory, just outbid Chelsea for him (cant see them topping 60m) . This reduces the amount of egg that will land on our face and is the only plausible way a deal will be done at this stage. don't rule out Soton refusing to do business with us if this does transpire but money usually talks in this game.

{Ed002's Note - No, it makes zero sense.}

3.) 14 Aug 2017 17:32:50
I'm with 002. That doesn't make sense.
If we were going to get him, we would have bid by now. So I really do think it's safe to say it's dead in the water.
Unless we can want to embarrass ourselves further with a lowball offer on deadline day. oh wait. no, we wouldn't, would we?

4.) 14 Aug 2017 17:41:31
Macca has said he will sign.

5.) 14 Aug 2017 17:44:44
I think when Southampton sign wimmer or whatever CB they're trying to get we will see our true intentions.

6.) 14 Aug 2017 17:52:48
I think its more a case of Southampton showing they are willing to sell him by negotiating with a club that would enable us to change our stance on no longer being interested. Curious as to whether both Benny and Ed002 feel Coutinho has any chance of moving in this window, given the club released a statement that he would not be sold, just as they released one to withdraw interest in VD.

7.) 14 Aug 2017 18:06:18
I think Southampton will have a bid accepted for Wimmer soon and then clubs will be alerted to VVD's availability. Then Chelsea will start negotiating and then it'll become clear if Liverpool have ended interest permanently or not. I think they may well try to sign, could they use a 3rd party? Perhaps to test the water? Then they can deny it if Southampton make a fuss? Personally I think Chelsea will do everything to sign him and may be able to convince him to join.

{Ed002's Note - You think the owners lied - or will they be withrawing their apology for making an illegal approach for the player?}

8.) 14 Aug 2017 18:21:22
I'm undecided on whether they'd be honourable or not. I'd like to think they'd be true to their word and repair some of the damage done. It would be real bad if they went back on everything, but it will be covered up well by the pro Liverpool press/ ex players/ Twitter etc. I'm still undecided though. I guess we'll see what kind of people they are. Klopp's comments do suggest they have moved on though.

Do you see a surprise club coming into the mix Ed002? You have mentioned Manchester City, although said it'll be tight financially. Any foreign clubs who could realistically afford the player?

{Ed002's Note - If they are true to their word then the matter is over. Clubs can afford him but some will be thinking twice about wanting damaged goods at their club.}

9.) 14 Aug 2017 18:32:49
On that premise if Coutinho leaves will the owners have lied?

{Ed002's Note - You have to be one dumb MF if you don't understand even now the seriousness of the situation.}

10.) 14 Aug 2017 18:39:55
maybe the owners lied.

11.) 14 Aug 2017 18:49:34
I think we will bid for him still even after the apology. The way we have gone about our business has been both embarrassing and underhand. His position is obviously untenable at Southampton but I personally believe it will go the same way as the Ashley Cole to Chelsea. I suspect ending with Southampton putting in a complaint and us getting heavily fined or with a future transfer embargo. Personally think we should take the medicine and move on, please show some honesty for once.

12.) 14 Aug 2017 18:52:31
I feel you have explained the gravity of the situation many times 002, and accepting the apology as fact requires taking the owners at their word. Surely this would require also taking a statement of no sale regarding coutinho at their word. Can you not see where im going with this? Or are you suggesting they only need to be truthful with potential sanctions overhead?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that the owners are responsible for the Coutinho sutuation but it is far from the same situation.}

13.) 14 Aug 2017 19:40:01
Wrote it off weeks ago.

14.) 14 Aug 2017 20:27:46
Well let's be honest would it really surprise anyone if LFC went back on their statement after what they've been up to recently?

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.
