It's being reported that Keita's agent travelled to Hong Kong to persuade / encourage liverpool to continue to bid for Keita!


1.) 26 Jul 2017 23:38:46
They're in Germany not Hong kong.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 01:03:20
I think he meant when Klopp was reported to have met whith NK's agent while we were still in Hong Kong. Hoever if it is true or not I am not sure but I think that might be illegal if so. I am pretty sure the same agency also has Mane on their books though.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 02:23:44
I can picture Keitas agent wandering around an empty training ground in Hong Kong today scratching his head at where everyone has gone 😂.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 11:37:19
Ed02 already said this meeting may or may not have happened, which has gotten RBL peed off at NK's agent for stoking the fires with their player. This has led to the RBL CEO coming out (like John Henry did for Suarez) saying that his agents need to cut it out and that NK is not leaving. If the CEO had to come out and say that then for sure, Keita is not going anywhere. I think that should be the way we go with Couts even if he asks to leave. We should tell him that we need him for this season and that next season, he can go to Barca.



27 Sep 2016 00:47:19
Ed2 sorry for the question but I remember reading a reply you gave a while back regarding three outstanding young talents in world football at the moment and you mentioned sheyi ojo and two other players who are the other two I was trying to find the original post and I am unable. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - In 2013 I was told by someone who knows far better than me that there were four truly exceptional young talents in world football at that time - Chelsea's Nathan Ake, Max Meyer of Schalke, Liverpool's Oluwaseyi Ojo and Martin Benitez of Independiente.}

1.) 27 Sep 2016 03:46:19
Thanks ed. Much appreciated.

2.) 27 Sep 2016 11:42:31
Have you spoken to this person since then ed?
It's just I've seen how things can change very quickly.

{Ed002's Note - I speak to him regularly.}

3.) 27 Sep 2016 17:19:35
Do we have any interest in Martin Benitez or had him scouted stats look pretty good.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid had two bids for Benitez turned down in January - they, Atletico and Bayer Leverkusen remain interested.}

4.) 27 Sep 2016 09:44:45
Hi Ed,

Do you see Ojo as a truly exceptional talent and will he be able to reach his full potential with us or would he be better going elsewhere to get regular 1st team football?

{Ed002's Note - I think this season will make the kid - whether Klopp wants to use him or not next season will decide where his future lies.}

5.) 28 Sep 2016 08:08:57
I would love to see him get a real shot - he reminds me a bit of Mane in terms of having pace, good skills to take on players one on one, good vision/ passing ability and a natural goal scorer. In short he has doesn't have any obvious weaknesses and just a question of how quickly he develops, which partly is a function of the chances he gets.

6.) 28 Sep 2016 08:12:54
Is he still injured at the moment?

{Ed001's Note - yes, though due back this weekend.}

7.) 28 Sep 2016 13:22:37
Would you put him in the team at the moment with us performing so well and if so who would you leave our for him?

{Ed001's Note - on the bench for me. There is no way we should be making changes unless forced to by injury, imo.}

8.) 28 Sep 2016 14:18:20
I am really excited by Ojo and I hope that Klopp finds a way to use him. People bang on about Rashford and Iheanacho, but I reckon Ojo leaves them in his wake.

9.) 28 Sep 2016 15:45:44
One of the things Klopp seems to do well is integrating players without disrupting the overall squad, and without throwing in players too early and damaging confidence.

I agree with Ed that he shouldn't be starting for a while yet given how Firmino/ Mane/ Coutinho are playing, and what I hope to see is some starts in selected early cup games, and some subs performances late on in selected PL games and take it from there. Next season is perhaps where he may challenge for regular a spot if he continues to grow.

10.) 29 Sep 2016 10:05:26
I like look of Marcus Edwards of Spurs
A few years back I watched an England under 16 match in which Yan Dhanda scored two goals but it was Edwards who ran the show and everything went thru him. But I guess if a player going to make it they need playing time.

11.) 30 Sep 2016 02:24:36
I think we'll see him get a chance if mane gets injured or African nations arriving. rate the boy though.



08 Jul 2016 19:36:17
M. Sakho's case dismissed according to Sky. Great News for him and Lfc. Push on now and look forward to next season.


1.) 08 Jul 2016 21:45:00
Excellent news. love this guy. Would of ended the season a lot better with him and Henderson fit and able.

2.) 08 Jul 2016 22:16:20
Good stuff, let's hope he stays here too!

3.) 09 Jul 2016 10:15:09
The Europa final may have been different too. Ah well, onwards and upwards.

{Ed023's Note - All ifs and buts but didn't the fella who replaced him getting Liverpool's man of the match?}

4.) 09 Jul 2016 10:32:45
I didn't realise coke replaced sakho.

{Ed023's Note - Does Coke play for Liverpool? Read what I actually wrote and come back to me}

5.) 09 Jul 2016 10:43:03
Hahaha well played eds.

6.) 09 Jul 2016 10:43:05
@Ed23 why even bother hah?

{Ed023's Note - Just wanted to point out what I said, some people don't bother to read properly but I do agree with you}

7.) 09 Jul 2016 09:45:10
An absolute disgrace. The poor guy missed out on the Europa League final and the Euros because of UEFA and it's "we are right and you are always wrong" attitude. I can't remember any other time when they backed down on a case. Having said all that they still aren't as bad as the FA.
Sakho is like a new signing at this stage as I presumed he was looking at a two to three year suspension.

8.) 09 Jul 2016 11:18:38
He's got a right to be seriously pissed off but I imagine there is also a sense of relief that this is finished with.

9.) 09 Jul 2016 11:48:56
Koke- the other one was more Merson's cup of tea 😉.

10.) 09 Jul 2016 12:36:39
Yes I feel sorry for him, but Toure was by far our best player in his absence, so people need to get over it.

11.) 09 Jul 2016 11:36:33
Have to agree ed kolo was easily man of the match, I don't think sakho playing would have made a difference, quick question mate, would you UEFA have a case to answer for sakho personally for deformation of character?

{Ed023's Note - I doubt they will bother and to be honest I'm not bothered what they do I'm just delighted Sakho resume his Liverpool career.

12.) 09 Jul 2016 12:44:43
Always had a gut feeling that there was nothing to see here after UEFA seemed confused about if the substance was supposed to be on the banned substance list to begin with. The good news just keeps coming. Great stuff!



30 Nov 2015 14:58:05
I see the papers have been linking Liverpool with a summer move for Jack Butland. Is there any truth in these rumours or just lazy journalism due to the fact the Butland is playing well at the moment and there is a general feeling (rightly or wrongly) that mings isn't good enough to play for Liverpool. Personally I think Butland will be a top keeper and would be a good signing for us.


{Ed002's Note - I am certain Liverpool has not made any approach to Stoke about a summer move for Butland.}

1.) 02 Dec 2015 00:43:44
Guardian says we're in talks for a new contract for him.



22 Aug 2015 23:25:32
I see Victor Wanyama has told Southampton he wants to leave, personally I think after Matic he is the best DM in the league, would he be a player Liverpool would be interested in, if Lucas leaves.

Thanks in advance


{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool has never shown an interest in him.}

Man City.




31 Jan 2018 21:07:07
Chelsea getting beaten united losing. really tightens the top 4 spots right up.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 22:13:53
With us winning, we have managed to suck everyone above us bar City, into the top 4 fight and right now, it will be do or die, down to the wire stuff. You got to be in it to win it and we are SMACK in it by going 3rd tonight.



08 Jan 2018 18:48:20
Would really love a Home Tie in FA cup later. Dream tie would be the Red Mancs. Think we are on a roll and they are struggling and would love to see the luck on Mourinhos face when VVD scores the winner amd he crys about Spending money.


1.) 08 Jan 2018 19:25:30
We have west Brom at home. I'd like to say easy tie. Now we have big Virgil I will.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 19:37:18
Also West Brom will probably consider PL survival a much more important prospect than an FA cup run.



23 Dec 2017 10:46:05
Eds in your opinion why has Klopp not sorted our defence and Gk. 3 seasons now and he has spent the grand total of 9m on our backline while he sees fit to throw 35 m at the Ox who we did not need. all his work has been done improving us going forward but surely u build from the back and make sure u don't lose games. its just so frustrating watching us play, going forward we are breathtakingly good and its great to watch but its getting to the point now that its not enough we need to be winning these games. and what is the story with us not been able to score late goals. No goal after the 80th min all yr.


{Ed025's Note - defence is not exactly klopps forte fruitba, his teams are great to watch but hes tactically naive when it comes to the back line, for me he needs help in that department but whether that actually happens is debatable mate..

1.) 23 Dec 2017 11:50:48
I disagree. Klopp may need to bring in CB's or defenders to play the way he wants to play BUT it does and has never meant that he does not know nor care about fixing the defence. After all, he went all in for VVD, we had the 5th best defence b4 last night and had conceded a might TWELVE shots on target in 9 games or do these facts not count?

Also, Klopp wants his teams to defend as a unit whenever they lose the ball and that starts from the front. We have proof that it works as we had only conceded 4 goals in the past 9 games since he tweaked the system and the individual errors had been greatly reduced until Gomez and Migs screwed up.

There is not much a manager can do about it in that moment. What he can do afterwards, is drop the clown in goal who has been costing us goals for years and his failure to do that for whatever reason is I agree, all down to him.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 12:20:43
BRover, we need a defensive coach, or this problem will never go away,
whats so obvious, is that both Liverpool and Arsenal are far away from winning the Premiership,
what will happen is that the owners will see that Kloppy has won nothing but admirers of his attacking game, and let him go, its like we are a quarter fional team, never going beyond that .

3.) 23 Dec 2017 11:31:04
You're wrong ed. the back line have been great since spurs. Problem is, there's so much pressure on the back four as they know one slip; one miss kick, even if they sneezed in the wrong direction, mignolet will be no where to be seen.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 12:24:13
Ed, if you are talking specifically about this match, I respectfully disagree. They played well enough to win handily. It was three individual mistakes that cost us the win. I actually think Klopp has adjusted well with defence especially after the Spurs match.

{Ed025's Note - the keeper controls the back line stone and picking him was klopps biggest mistake mate..

5.) 23 Dec 2017 14:58:46
Spot on, Ed. It all starts from the GK. If he is as useless and jittery as Migs is, it won't matter if you have the Arsenal legendary back 4 at LFC, we will concede.

{Ed025's Note - it does not take a lot of fixing brover...ditch the idiot migs and second is there for the taking mate..

6.) 24 Dec 2017 03:47:52
No amount of coaching is going to help if the players switch off in the game. Gomez should have attacked the ball and also gone with the runner for two goals. You learn that at about 6 years old. Sometimes these errors need to happen with young players to improve. As for migs there are no words other than he needs to go. He’s had 4 seasons to improve and is regressing.

{Ed0333's Note - I didn’t realize Migs has been with us for that amount of time. Do you remember the penalty save in his first game for us I thought we’d bought a real player and I could not have been more frigging wrong. How has he not been sold by now is beyond me. It really does beggars belief.

7.) 23 Dec 2017 18:22:53
Fair Ed, I see your point. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

{Ed025's Note - you too stone mate..



27 Aug 2017 18:46:00
i would much rather give Can assurances on playing time than shell out 70m on Keita. im sure Keita is a very good player but is that much of an upgrade on Can if at all. We need a imposing CB more than another CM.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 19:02:46
Can was class today.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 19:04:48
We have money for both. We were going to spend money on Kieta and VVD. Or so we have been lead to believe.

3.) 27 Aug 2017 19:21:40
I think if we do get Keita, Can will go.
This is one time I want LFC to do the right thing.

4.) 27 Aug 2017 19:24:15
I'd be more worried if I was Henderson or win if keita came in.

Without VVD or a Quality CB in this window i feel its very underwhelming. Keita is not coming for a year. Ox is a squad player. Solanke a squad player. Robertson needs time. only Mo Salah has improved us.

players career ed? what does that mean he will get a pay rise and move to a bigger club be that club liverpool or chelsea. he will be playing in CL also. liverpool have went the wrong way about it but VVD will come out of this in a better poistion than he is already in. hos reputation will take a hit but many players have done similar and went on to have great careers.


{Ed002's Note - You think it is OK to disrupt a professional footballer contracted to another club to such an extent that he ends up training alone and demanding a move to a club that illegally met and continued to stay in touch with the player? Everything that has been done by Klopp and Liverpool this summer is totally unprofessional and in a number of cases illegal. This has been explained repeatedly.}

I wouldn't change the captaincy at the moment but i think its o ly a matter of. time. before VVD gets it. Hendo will be phased out of the team in the next year but he just isn't good enough to start on any team that is looking to win the title.

Waro have they not invested more on players than any previous owners. have they not improved the commercial side of our club. have they not backed the manager whom they have brought in. did they not save us from ending up like leeds. have they not increased our staduim with plans afoot for further redevelopment. they had zero choice in selling suarez amd couthino as they wanted out. i don't see what your problem is.

Klopp deserves the credit for giving him the freedom to play in the role he is playing. why didn't salah score 28 goals in an inferior lge in italy.

why are people trying to be clever most people when asked to pick one player from spain went with isco asensio etc. really. are u really saying that L. Messi wouldn't be first pick, he is the best player in the world by a country and perhaps the best of all time and u pick isco over him. jesus isco can't hold down a place in the real madrid team.
