ED001/ ED002

How are we lads, another few weeks to go until silly season is over, you looking forward to the end?

Question in reference to Burnley's Tarkowski, I know weeks back Macca mentioned Klopp really rates this bloke, has there been any news if he will stay with current club or potential interest elsewhere?

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans for him to move this summer.}

1.) 23 Jul 2018 09:12:10
Alfie Mawson will be signing for Burnley this week. There have been no enquiries for Tarkowski yet though.




17 Jul 2018 09:48:22

Hope all is well!

A few different Liverpool sources saying RM in not prepared to pay Alisson's asking price, even though they agree terms with the player, which now opens the doors to Liverpool.
I know you mentioned the situation is difficult/ unlikely, but are you aware if the situation would be looking clearer if this were to be true?

Do you think its more practical that with RM out the way, that we will place a bid?

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid's primary interest is elsewhere, it is the player who is keen to move there. The situation will be eased if Liverpool were to offer an acceptable fee - somewhere close to what Roma are asking. Then something can be done.}

1.) 17 Jul 2018 10:44:37
Wow nice!

2.) 17 Jul 2018 10:49:45
Ed is it courtois that RM want?

{Ed002's Note - He is there preferred choice by a long way. He is far more affordable than Alisson and is in their view the much better goalkeeper.}

3.) 17 Jul 2018 10:53:16
My only fear with this is if we do offer an acceptable fee, this along with Fekir would be another 100M+ on 2 players on top of what we have already paid for Keita and Fabinho. Yes its not my money but imo the club will be spending to much and for that reason I can't see it happening.

4.) 17 Jul 2018 11:04:30
How will alisson feel about being third choice? I mean, klopp has apparently told ward he is in the battle for number one with karius. Or is klopp selling more falsehoods?

5.) 17 Jul 2018 11:09:13
Thanks for the reply ed, courtois in my opinion is the better keeper. Interesting to see what happens next if RM do sign him.

6.) 17 Jul 2018 11:23:03
Have you heard anything recently in regards of Liverpool willing to make such an offer ed?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no offer, and Roma could end interest in the player by demanding cash which Liverpool don't have. If Liverpool want to push ahead and try to do something with Alisson, then they must talk with Roma and put an acceptable offer on the table. Given what Klopp has said about Karius and Ward it would be a very significant kick in the gonads for them.}

7.) 17 Jul 2018 11:50:01
I do admire your patience ed2!
You do know you opened the door for a gazillion more Alisson questions now? 😀.

8.) 17 Jul 2018 12:03:53
Knowing LFC, we will bid for Alisson even after klopps comments regarding Ward and Karius but fail to bid enough which will leave us with disgruntled keepers of which two at least aren't what most would deem "good" enough.

9.) 17 Jul 2018 12:35:29
I doubt we'll put in a bid unless we have are prepared pay what Roma want and know that Alisson will sign.

With the Salah sale, Roma's Pallotta said he and John Henry negotiated the deal in Boston. I expect something similar will happen with Alisson.

10.) 17 Jul 2018 12:10:09
Thanks Ed, great responses!

Thanks ed. Really appreciate the reply.

12.) 17 Jul 2018 13:00:49
the Club will spend what it can to back Klopp as long as it is for the benefit of the club. If Klopp can convince them that spending £100million more on two players could be the difference between a title or champs league etc and it is financially viable the club will do it. They know the financial state the club is better than we do. I’m looking forward to the new season. This is probably the most complete squad we have had in a long time other than the keeper position

we can use city as an example they bought bravo and realised he was useless in a more physical league and went and replaced him with Ederson who was a class apart last year. I hope we can do something similar and pull off a deal for someone like Alisson. Then football may well be coming home to Anfield for the first time in a long time.

13.) 17 Jul 2018 13:22:20
In the champions league final we saw we needed an upgrade in middlefield, cover for Salah and a better keeper.
We upgraded our middlefield with Fabinho Keita and (Fekir) .
We got cover for Salah in Shaquiri and (Fekir) as well.
We need to get now a better keeper hopefully Alisson.
If money is the problem we still have to sell
Wijnaldum, Clyne, Mignolet, Markovic, Ings.

14.) 17 Jul 2018 13:04:40
Yeah fair play Ed002, great insight as always.
I just don't see us spending Van Dijk-type money on a position that Klopp doesn't seem too bothered about, although I do hope I'm wrong. Butland/ Navas seems far more likely, but let's just wait and see, only 23 sleeps until the window is closed. Good luck, Eds! ;)

15.) 17 Jul 2018 13:48:21
When did we sign Fekir?
Have I missed something?



03 Jul 2018 09:45:53
ED001/ ED002

Multiple liverpool sources coming out saying Donarumma has been offered to Liverpool as AC need to balance their books due to breaching FFP rules.
Any truth to this?

Thank you

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - It would just be a single "source" being repeated and it is likely some attention grabbing Italian web site. Mino has discussed Donnarumma with two clubs so far, neither is Liverpool. Like Alisson, Liverpool has not made any offer to his club.}

1.) 03 Jul 2018 13:02:04
Just lazy journalism in my opinion, putting two and two together and getting five. Liverpool have been well documented to be looking for a goalkeeper and as soon as it was announced Ac Milan had been banned (pending an appeal) we were always going to be linked with Donnarumma. I’d have him at Liverpool i think the lad has ability but he also has an attitude, could Klopp knock that out of him? Who knows.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 13:01:47
Thanks ED002 appreciate your responses. You're highly valued on this page.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 16:33:14
i don't like using the same sauce.



02 Jul 2018 08:03:49

This is a long shot. 99% I don't expect a response, but any amendments or updates to your initial predictions?


Tommy T.




21 Jun 2018 09:05:09

In the past you mentioned Sturridge was overpriced by Pool.
Are you aware if the price has now been lowered and is it more reasonable for other suitors?
Or, still know one wants a bar of it?


Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have given a price to his agent that will make any transfer difficult unless they (a) lower the asking price, and (b) contribute to his wages.}

1.) 21 Jun 2018 09:21:12
on a more broader spectrum do you think this is a recurring theme for players now, we are trying to get too much for them e. g. Markovic.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs will always try and get the best deal they can, but they need to avoid things like supplementing wages as it can be a financial disaster. Everton and Rooney is about to be a good example.~

2.) 21 Jun 2018 12:40:42
Agreed I should of reworded it to priced out of a move.

Are we currently paying part of any transferred players wages at the moment?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I know of, only some loan players.}

3.) 21 Jun 2018 13:57:43
Maybe clubs are hoping a rich Chinese club comes in for sturridge. He would totally light up China lol.

4.) 21 Jun 2018 14:54:44
Not if he's on the bench Fatboy.

5.) 21 Jun 2018 16:55:42
The smart move would to be place a very minimal transfer fee on Sturridge, if one at all, and almost let him walk to the team of his choice where the buying club simply pay wages to him. Probably unlikely that happens though.

6.) 21 Jun 2018 21:28:07
The longer he stays the more we pay in wages obviously so makes sense to lower price. I think £5million would attract clubs, same applies to Markovic really.

7.) 22 Jun 2018 12:09:38
When is Sturridges contract up?

8.) 22 Jun 2018 12:29:49

You'd imagine that some form of structured payment depending on appearances could be worked out. If he goes on loan I'll still be rooting for him to get fit and score some goals. I like the guy but he's just taking up space and wages in the squad.
How about Lallana, Ed? Have they put an inflated price tag on him also?

{Ed002's Note - He has a contract, if he stays or goes on loan it is not something that can be negotiated. I am not aware of Liverpool offering Lallana for sale.}

9.) 22 Jun 2018 18:14:36
totalsportek. com say Sturridge has 2 years left on his contract on 120k/ week but indicate it ends in 2019 so I think it is only 1.

If we where able to sell Sturridge I can imagine he will want a healthy signing bonus to sign a new contract as you have to believe he will not get anything close to what he is on now so take that of the price anyone would pay.

I can't help feel thou if he stays he will be more motivated to play as he will be looking for a new contract at the end of the year!
If he stays I will support him and hope he can find some fitness and form! If he leaves I will wish him all the best!

10.) 23 Jun 2018 01:45:32
DS wants to stay!

ED001/ ED002

Hope all is well!

Regarding Nabil Fekir could you potentially see Liverpool going back in for him in next years window?
f he doesn't sign a contract extension I believe next season he will have 1yr remaining, therefore would Liverpool be more encouraged
with Lyons potential 'lower valuation' of the player considering time left on his contract?

Or. regarding all these rumours about Liverpool being unsatisfied with the medical report in reference to his knee, is this done and buried with Liverpool forever and all future questioning regarding Liverpool and Nabil should be ended?

Tommy T.


{Ed001's Note - depends on Klopp. As he was still keen on signing Fekir after the medical, he might well push for the signing at a lower fee. We know Klopp is stubborn and wait for the man he wants, so it is very possible he does go back in for him.}

1.) 16 Aug 2018 12:28:11
Thanks Ed001, fairly encouraging comment. Im a big fan of Nabil and was gutted the deal didn't go through. However, signing Alisson did soften the blow for me.

{Ed001's Note - I would have loved Fekir to sign until I realised it would make Ed0333 happy and that would have taken the shine off it for me!}

2.) 16 Aug 2018 13:30:09
For me signing fekir in January is preferable to the summer. Adding a player of that quality mid season can give you a boost to kick on and finish strong if you're in a small dip or looks like your going to go through 1, abit like how VVD pushed us on last year.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 13:37:24
Would you think it possible he might want him in January ed. Appreciate that's very hard for you to answer mate.

Maybe if we are well off the pace at Xmas.

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say.}

4.) 16 Aug 2018 14:02:58
I can't see it happening unless there was a notable injury in midfield between now and then. To be honest I like the prospect of Keita playing furthest forward of the midfield 3 after the first proper glimpse of his abilities at the weekend.
I think us going back in for Fekir next summer will depend on him firstly still being at Lyon and secondly having another standout injury-free season.
That being the case I think the powers that be would see it as a much lower risk buy as the fee would likely also reflect him entering the final year of his contract next season.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 23:09:23
If Fekir stays another season at Lyon and has another good season as this past one, then his price goes up. Way up. And if Keita has the kind of season that his first game has indicated, then I doubt the need to look at Fekir any further, save for major injuries to the front 3 or in midfield.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool never went back for Fekir.}

Hi Gents,

After your thoughts, CEO Peter Moore has mentioned the club will try to look for the next Mohammad Salah when talking about transfers.

If you were in charge of the club, with your extensive knowledge of the game a long with insight into player talents.
Who would 'you sign' if you had 1 player to choose from that has been legitimately linked with us and why?

They may not be the next Mo Salah but if you believe the player could produce a 'significant' positive impact to the club and would be a bloody good purchase. Providing obviously they settle to the change of environment and injuries are all good.

Thanks for your response and love your work.

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - Diego Lainez is well thought of for a kiddie.}

1.) 29 Jun 2018 10:28:17
If after a new salah, just jump to klopps third or fourth choice 😁.

2.) 29 Jun 2018 11:08:09
I am not sure we have been legitimately linked but Oblak would be the choice for me.

It has been a long time since we have had a top quality keeper and as you have seen with United, they are worth a lot of points.

It would also make the defence more confident and improve the team massively.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 11:14:31
Probably a good idea to look at Chelsea's scrap heap.

4.) 29 Jun 2018 19:17:09
Pulisic. He needs to go to Chelsea and flop first though.

5.) 29 Jun 2018 19:53:30
Assensio would be our most significant signing imo. Added to our current team and new recruits 8 think we would be close 2nd favourites for the league. I think we'd win it no doubt. He's that good. Pure class player whom klopp would turn into a true no10 or attacking mid. I really hope it happens, he's young and could trigger another decade of dominance.

6.) 29 Jun 2018 20:07:48
Justin Klivert but that ship has sailed. Pulsic not a bad shout.



27 Jun 2018 10:19:00

Do you think Fekir will still end up signing with your opinion?


Tommy T.


{Ed001's Note - do I have to keep answering this question every week?}

1.) 27 Jun 2018 10:34:39
Looks to be the case Ed001 lol.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 10:40:09
Chowchowtoma, To be fair mate eds have said on several occasions that our push for Fekir is perhaps not over yet, world cup seems to have put things on hold or paused if you like lol.

I personly don't think Fekir will arrive and Klopp will push for Draxler. Just my opinion though, I might be way off.

Ed do you see us adding a back up winger also?

3.) 27 Jun 2018 10:42:00
No just everyday 😂.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 10:49:13
Ah go on Ed one for the road mate😁.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 12:24:54
I totally get your frustration Ed001, shame on you Tommy!

On a different note, Ed001, do you think we will eventually sign Fekir?


6.) 27 Jun 2018 15:21:17
I think we need a poll:
Does Ed001 think Fekir will eventually be a Liverpool player? YES 
NO 
Ask him yourself, every day, for the entire duration of the summer window 
Who is this Fekir fecker anyway? .



21 Jun 2018 09:33:53
Ed002 thank you for your previous comment regarding Sturridge.

Are you aware if Liverpool put in a bid to Roma for Alisson as of yesterday?

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool did not put in a bid for Alisson yesterday.}

The thing about overpriced players ED002, I wouldn't look to much into this.
I recall many years ago you stating Firmino was overpriced and not many clubs wanted to go near him for that valuation.

I think we paid $30mill pounds or something like that. 3-4 years later he would be double that if not more.

Its like an investment in property. if its a good purchase (player plays well) over time they should be worth more than your initial investment.

Sometimes you need to get that dream home and outbid bidders and over pay. Property rises, just like players do.
So outbidding 10-15mill pound give it 3-4 years . you've probably more likely doubled your return if the player has performed.

Kindest regards

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool spent significantly more than $30M for him.}

Appreciate your response.

Im trying to possibly see if you can give me any details or any hope at all that Liverpool may place a bid for this beat of a player. Out of fall players I would like him the most, fingers crossed.

I think it was a few weeks a go I had asked a question and I recall you mentioning klopp is a loyal manger as I was comparing him to what Mourinhio may do in this situation, however, I do like loyalty myself. (this question was also prior to the UCL GF)

Just wondering if anything could change here.

Thanks Ed.
love your work.


{Ed002's Note - To be fair it has rather been done to death. In discussionsn with Roma about another player, another club who asked were told they have to wait for Alisson as the player really wants to move to Madrid.}

Thanks for your response re Fekir.
A journo asked Klopp a question yesterday about Fekir, his response was;
"Its probably done, but there's 2 weeks to go, if nothing happens to my players then all good, if something does then you need to react, if not now then next year"

Appreciate your thoughts in retrospect to Klopps comments.
Obviously its very hard to predict something as we don't have crystal balls, BUT, do you possibly see this TV series of Fekir continuing until the last day, is the ball in Lyons court atm or is it the reverse?

If a creative Liverpool midfielder were to get injured in pre season for a few months do you see this triggering Liverpool to go back in for Fekir?

In addition not a question but a statement, a day ago, not sure if you're aware but the Liverpool owners wife on social media liked an in individuals comment stating that FSG's transfer business has been great and Fekir were to be completed it would be icing on the cake.
Many Pool fans got excited over this, wonder if it means anything.

Thanks Ed.

Tommy T.


{Ed002's Note - It has been clear that Klopp has had no idea about the GKs and it is clear something needs to be done.

I cannot help about the owner's old lady liking stuff on Twitter or Facebook.}
