Good morning Eds. I recall last year there were rumors that Liverpool were interested in Karim Demirbay. I used the search engine and noticed he hasn't been mentioned since the fall. I was just curious to know if there really was any interest and, if so, if that interest continues.


{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been added in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.}

Thank you Ed. It's very much appreciated.



27 Feb 2019 19:22:07
Just a question for any of the Ed's that are available. Over the last few seasons, there have been some former Championship players that have become impact players for Premier League teams.

Are there any current Championship players you think we should keep an eye on, and are there any that Liverpool may be interested in? I don't get to see Championship matches where I am, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!


{Ed002's Note - Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB), but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}

1.) 27 Feb 2019 19:42:02
Ed2 - you are the wind beneath our wings sir! 😊
Thanks so much for all your incredible contribution!

{Ed002's Note - I guessed it would be "wind" based.}

2.) 27 Feb 2019 19:46:02
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 27 Feb 2019 21:00:48
Thank you for the info as ever Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:27:34
Ed2! good to see you around, thanks for the info, hows things?

{Ed002's Note - I am kicking my heels before leaving real early on Friday. Great result tonight and boosting the goals.}

5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:41:40
Who do you support ed 02? Just as a matter of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I have a soft spot for a few sides, Greenock Morton, Chelsea, and obviously Marseille. When I was a beautiful, pretty child with the most amazing hair there were no teams nearby. When i moved to England in 1981 my wife and I moved to Chelsea, close to the ground.}

6.) 27 Feb 2019 23:06:21
Hahaha ok thanx I don't know why but I thought u supported man United for some reason, balotelli is scoring still, and great result for Chelsea, greenock Morton I am not up on, cheers .

7.) 27 Feb 2019 23:49:35
Are you mates with jason manning? 😆. Admit you have a soft spot for us as well ed, the best fans in the land.



24 May 2018 15:47:22
Good Morning Eds. I see ESPN and a few others are reporting Liverpool interest in Christopher Nkunku. I checked the search engine and haven't seen his name mentioned in quite some time, so I thought I would ask if there was any actual interest. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - i don’t know but Fiorentina had discussions with him and stepped back because of demands for game time.}

1.) 24 May 2018 16:09:01
Thanks Ed002. It is greatly appreciated.

Question for Ed1 if you have the time. In the past you've mentioned players you would like the club to pursue, even if it's very unlikely (Sule and Medel come to mind) . Are there any other players you are a fan of and dream of the club going after?


{Ed001's Note - honestly no. At one time it was easy to pick holes in the team and see players that would improve it. Not any more. There are some quality players who would he useful additions but no dream signings right now. There does seem a lack of really outstanding quality players right now.}

1.) 04 Jul 2019 05:32:34
Actually I take that back, someone just mentioned Saul Niguez, now him I would take in a heartbeat!

2.) 04 Jul 2019 05:43:58
I think Saul is one of the best CM around, can read the game so well.

{Ed001's Note - he is a fantastic player and would be the perfect replacement for Milner when the time comes. He has that same utility value, workrate and ability that Millie possesses but with probably a bit more quality.}

3.) 04 Jul 2019 06:38:22
Just have a feeling Houseem Aouar could well be our next midfield signing, just not this summer. Possibly the Milner replacement (albeit completely different players) .

4.) 04 Jul 2019 07:51:04
I agree with the above aouar would be great signing but would be a bit too early too get him, personally I think bruno Fernandes is the one that will get away he has everything we need .

5.) 04 Jul 2019 07:55:24
I stand by it will be a player currently at the African nations cup
dream player for me would be Dembele from Barcelona I feel he would rip the premiership apart under klopp's management.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 08:36:36
For me it would be DeBruyne. Think there is one space in our midfield that Keita hasn't made his own. The other two midfield spaces taken by Fab and Hendo / Wij.

Hopefully next season we will see Keita or Ox make that number 8 (slightly more attacking) role their own.

7.) 04 Jul 2019 08:43:52
Dembele is French Johncrow mate.

8.) 04 Jul 2019 09:26:23
I honestly can't wait for Ox to get back into full flow!

9.) 04 Jul 2019 12:36:09
Is it a lack of high class players? Or is it that our level of class has risen so much as our team has progressed? So potential signings no longer seem so important.

10.) 04 Jul 2019 12:48:15
Agreed jtaylor. Fans always forget players ability when they're out for a season. The ox was absolutely brilliant in his first season. As usual it took a while before he was starting (not as long as some, maybe because there was no language barrier) people have been calling for an attacking mid, someone who can pick out nice passes, someone who can burst forward with the ball and score goals, both from distance and inside the box. That Aoc in a nutshell. can't wait to see him in the same team as fabhino.

Out of interest- who do the eds and reds think is the better passer of the ball: Hendo or Fab?

I think henderson just about tops fab in that regard.

11.) 04 Jul 2019 13:04:43
Thanks for the reply Ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

12.) 04 Jul 2019 13:32:13
I would think a bit of both in my view. 2 years ago the was hard to think of arguably having the best GK and CB in the world along with 2 prolific wide players winning the golden boot. One of the best LB around and trent and gomez up there as the best progressed CB and and RB for their age. Fabinho in the top 3 in his position too.

But also the fact after Messi and Ronaldo, the guys like neymar, dembele, pogba, bale, coutinho, lukaku were all the hottest properties in past transfer windows and were all being touted to be the next best in their positions. Most of those have only played with world class form for a short period just a season or 2. Mbappe looks like the guy most expected to be the next to maybe win a few ballon dors. But I do feel this generation after Messi and Ronaldo might be slack in players being iconically remembered. The puskas, peles, maradonna, cruyff, di Stefano, beckenbauher, zidane, eusabio, Brazilian Ronaldo. I can't see any current players being remembered like those are for years in today's crop, I know that can change easily over a few years but currently so many footballers are getting way too hyped up.

13.) 04 Jul 2019 13:34:52
I know he is french Shaq the post said who you think and your dream would be, they don't have to be the same choice do they
or was I mistaken?

14.) 04 Jul 2019 14:03:08
In terms of world class midfielders under 30 I can only think of Kante, Niguez, De Bruyne and Fabinho off the top of my head.

15.) 04 Jul 2019 14:55:32
I get ya johncrow. You were making a statement (player we want is at Afcom) then answering a question (dream signing)

And i agree, Dembele would rock at liverpool imo. I think mane and salah are both better but there wouldn't be much of a drop in quality if dembele started in front of them.

Id take gareth Bale as my dream signing. Or Mbappe. Bale is more versatile though. The guy can play in just about any position. Gets goals no matter where he plays. I don't think going to madrid was the best move for a lad who comes across as humble and quiet.

16.) 04 Jul 2019 14:57:38
I don't follow Spanish football much. Has Bale been starting more since Cr7 left? And does the signing of Hazard effect Bales chances of playing?

17.) 04 Jul 2019 15:26:19
A healthy De Bruyne would be my number one choice. Love him as a player. Saul as a close second.

18.) 04 Jul 2019 16:41:23
KDB if fit is awesome as you say.

How can you say Fabinho is world class? How can you put him in the same conversation as Kante and KDB?

19.) 04 Jul 2019 16:46:50
Going to Madrid not the best move for Bale! Hes won 4 champions league medals, hes paid at least 300k a week and spends most of his life on the golf course when not playing football

Zielinski, Isco or Asenio for midfield anyone?

20.) 04 Jul 2019 18:42:46
Mark, in my honest opinion Fabinho's been the best holding midfielder in world football for 2 years.

People are scared to admit how good our team is because they're not used to it. Arguably; Alisson is the best keeper, Trent is the best right back, Virgil is the best centre back, Robbo is the best left back, Fabinho is the best defensive midfielder, and Salah is the best right forward. Arguably of course, as it's subjective. I wouldn't swap any of those players for anyone else in world football.

Nobody would dispute these claims if I was talking about another team who had just claimed 97 points and the biggest prize in club football. I don't know why there is this fear to admit how good we are.



14 May 2019 20:55:57
I'm sure you all have seen it, but I just saw the video on ESPN of Salah's daughter scoring a goal in front of the fans on Sunday. It was really great to see the fans have fun with that and to see her having such a great time. Moments like that can provide a lot of perspective.




09 Jan 2019 04:34:34
I have a question regarding a few current loan deals. It is my understanding that there are at least 2 players out on loan with an obligation to buy.

What are the benefits of a loan with an obligation to purchase? It seems like a drawn out sale, which makes me think I'm missing something, haha.

Any help would definitely be appreciated.


{Ed001's Note - there are a number of reasons to do so. The buying club might not have the money to complete the purchase immediately or FFP might preclude them from spending the money at that moment. It could be simply to put it into a following financial year or the obligation might come with caveats regarding the player's fitness, if they are known to have issues. I am sure there are a few other possibilities as well but I just can't think of them off the top of my head sorry. Oh another one is behaviour, if the player is known to have behavioural issues you would be basically giving them the loan spell to prove they have changed.}

1.) 09 Jan 2019 08:10:14
Thanks for the info ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

2.) 09 Jan 2019 12:24:29
Hey Ed, further to this.

I realise you said behaviour is one benefit for (I presume) the selling/ / loanning out team. Other than that, what is the benefit for the selling club? Is it just to get them off the books that particular season?

Just trying to understand the Danny Ings loan/ / transfer slightly more. He seemed well behaved so it couldn't be any issues with that. What do we get from loaning him out to the Saints and not getting to have him back rather than sell him to someone willing to buy him now (if there was such a team looking to do so at the time, that is) .

{Ed001's Note - because of his injury history, we got the chance to get a better price than we would do otherwise by allowing him to prove his fitness. He would not have got the chance to play for us.}

3.) 09 Jan 2019 12:35:46
Thanks Ed, that makes sense.

I wonder what they'll be thinking over at Southampton. He definitley hasn't proved his fitness but still scoring goals! Worth the £20 million I wonder?



11 Nov 2018 14:31:15
I continue to be impressed with the pairing of Gomez and VVD. In particular, I'm very happily surprised by VVD's dominance in the air. I feel like he gets a head to every cross into the defensive end. I didn't watch much of him prior to his time in Liverpool, so this has been something I've enjoyed seeing since he joined.

Also, the poise and confidence of Gomez seems to grow with every start. He's been terrific so far this season.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 15:10:15
I prefer Gomez to Lovren. VVD is a monster. I thought Gini was too deep today I wasn't surprised to see him hooked off, I thought maybe naby would've got more of a run out though. Hopefully he stays in Liverpool and gets some training in next week.

2.) 11 Nov 2018 15:16:02
I think Gini and Milner need a rest to be honest. Theymve done well this season so far, but other players are coming into their own now. Shaqiri and Fabinho have been excellent when they have played, we have clearly missed Henderson, and Keita has so much untapped potential. There isn’t an awful lot klopp can do about Mane and Firmino under performing but he can at least keep our midfield fresh and reward the players who are contributing positively when they are given the chance.

3.) 11 Nov 2018 16:30:22
yeah would of been nice to see naby get a few more minutes in that game as the second half was a stroll.



02 Nov 2018 23:07:11
This one is for Ed1 if you are around. I know you have a long list of player profiles, but I was curious to know if you ever did one for Maldini? I was a huge fan of his (and Rui Costa on those teams) growing up. I ran his name through the search engine and saw a lot of references to him, but I don't recall seeing a profile.

Just curious to know if you'd done one in the past. I know you have a lengthy list that I don't want to add to, haha.



{Ed001's Note - no mate, but when I do a Legends of the Game article on a player I always do a player profile of them as well, so he will get one when I do that mate.}

1.) 03 Nov 2018 03:45:28
Thanks Ed. Sorry to make more work for you, haha.

{Ed001's Note - it's fine mate, he was already on the Legends list, so I would have done him anyway.}

2.) 03 Nov 2018 12:20:54
Oh Ed01, could you do a Legends Of The Game profile on Gheorghe Hagi?

{Ed001's Note - yep he is on the list.}

3.) 03 Nov 2018 12:53:36
Hristo Stoichkov, since we are discussing Balkan stars? (sorry if I'm adding to your workload 😔)

{Ed001's Note - don't worry he is on the list too.}

Unless the team intends to use him as a winger, he'd be joining a midfield that already includes Ox, Keita, Fabinho, Hendo, Wini, and Milner. That doesn't include Lallana who I don't expect to play. I don't see it happening unless one of those players leave.

Could it happen? Sure, but I would expect a corresponding move as well.

As a Yankees fan, I'm predisposed to dislike all things Red Sox, but I will admit that the owners have done well since taking over, haha. Happy to see this team progress so mu h.
