HI Eds I just wanted to ask if you have any idea if we are still looking at midfielders?

Every player we are linked with seems to be a midfielder. I am hoping they are all nonsense as surely this is no priority.


{Ed001's Note - clubs never stop looking, it doesn't mean they are going to sign them.}



04 Jul 2015 15:18:24
Is there any truth in this rumour that we are after Pedro and that he prefers idea of coming to Liverpool over Arsenal???

I fear its rubbish but would be great. He is a player i think we should have tried harder to net over last coupe of years (if that was even possible?)


{Ed002's Note - It is difficult to see a move to Liverpool without Champions League football. Barcelona will sell at the right price and Pedro was offered to a couple of clubs, one as part of a convoluted part exchange but no deal could be struck for Kovacic.}



19 Jun 2015 09:07:33
HI Eds. I see it is being reported Skrtel has signed a new three year contract. Is this true?


{Ed001's Note - it is agreed, not sure if he has actually signed it yet though.}

1.) 19 Jun 2015 09:44:30
This summer just gets worse and worse.

2.) 19 Jun 2015 09:54:03
No, he didn't sign it yet. He is on holiday. The information that he signed was based on fake facebook account but it is not true. Inter Milan was interested in him. But the expectation is he will stay in Liverpool. YNWA

3.) 19 Jun 2015 11:16:41
Adam what has been so bad about the summer so far may I ask? I also would like Skrtel replaced with Bartra or somebody else but what else are you referring to? The weather? Milner & Ings are both good signings and Bogdan replacing Jones, while entirely uninspiring, isn't actually bad.

4.) 19 Jun 2015 13:01:47
That, and the fact that the transfer window isn't even open yet.

5.) 19 Jun 2015 13:04:22
Bad summer because we've kept on an inept manager when we could have approached Klopp. We've rewarded mediocrity once again by giving Skrtel a new contract. We've signed Milner who we don't need. We've signed a Championship level goalie when we needed a new number 1. We also seem to have lost out on a great player like Kovacic. We have Lambert, Borini, Balotelli and a frequently injured Sturridge in attack so we sign a kid from Burney who scored about 11 goals in one season. That's why I think it's been a bad summer, Kev. A team like Liverpool should be at least aiming for the Champions League, but really we should be aiming to win trophies, we're not going to do that based on this summer's activities.

6.) 19 Jun 2015 15:23:22
Except Klopp isn't available yet and Skrtel has been offered a crap contract that he won't sign, which will hopefully lead to his sale and replacement.
We don't need Milner? He will bring MUCH needed experience along with ability to our midfield. I don't have great faith in Mignolet but the money for a new number one is needed more elsewhere.
Who said we've missed out on Kovacic and how often have you actually seen him play? Ings will be the best backup striker we've had for a while, better than Borini & Aspas of course, he reminds me a bit of Bellamy and 11 goals ain't actually bad for a relegation club.
Buyers will hopefully be found for Borini & Balotelli with another striker coming in and Sterling's replacement is a very important piece of business (crossing my fingers for Firmino).
You seem to be a bit overly negative about everything, it's only June, as RE said, the window isn't even open yet. Have a little patience.

7.) 19 Jun 2015 17:30:45
How is the money for a new number 1 needed more elsewhere? De Gea is the reason United got into the top 4 last season. Goalies save countless points a year. Mignolet is one of the weakest links in our team, a new goalkeeper is the first thing I would be spending money on.

"Sorted has been offered a crap contract that he won't sign" - I'm pretty sure football clubs don't work like that.

Klopp isn't available? I'm pretty sure he's without a club now and has never been more approachable. But even if he wasn't available, keeping an idiot like Rodgers still constitutes a bad summer in my eyes.

I've seen him play a lot, Kovacic and I think he's going to be a cracking player who we've missed out on.

"Ings will be the best back up striker we've had in a while" - exactly, a back up striker. We shouldn't be signing "back up" strikers, we should be signing strikers to improve our first 11. For a team like Burnley 11 goals isn't bad, but once again, he's had ONE season to prove himself and we sign him when we should be turning our attention to signing first team players. I'm "overly" negative because I have a winning mentality and I want to see Liverpool win things, I'm not content with the mediocrity they are once again subjecting themselves to.



21 Aug 2014 00:26:00
PLEASE Eds, can you tell me if its true that LFC have said they want a good behaviour clause tied into Mario's possible move meaning we could send him back if he is a naughty boy!
And that Milan have said no?

If true this has made my day! LOL
Has to be one of the funniest things I have heard and the fact hey turned it down makes it even funnier


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}



19 Jul 2014 08:03:54
Eds can you answer me a question?

Lots of people on here saying Borini deal is done. Has it been finalised with exception perhaps of medical?

Personally I understand we need money but think its a shame as rate him. Perfect attitude, works hard, scores goals and seems to have real passion to win.

Anyway, thanks for all your hard work


{Ed001's Note - the offer has been accepted, Borini hasn't accepted, or hadn't accepted last night anyway, their offer. I do expect he will take it though.}

1.) 19 Jul 2014 08:38:43
He's a good lad but strikers are paid to score goals and unfortunatly he just doesn't score enough. To get 14m and replace with Remy for 8m makes sense to me, we have lost 31 goals plus assists from one man.

2.) Scores goals? Not for LFC he didn't. Yes he works hard but as last fan states strikers are paid to score goals an unfortunately borini doesn't.

3.) He hardly got a chance at LFC? He scored some vital goals for sunderland and was a big reason they stayed up.
he may not bag 30 goals but if you look at the goals he did score for Sunderland he made many of the for himself. Given good through balls by better and more creative players that we have he would be very good and score far more IMO

4.) I agree I like boring and wish him well if it goes through but if we do get £14m I'd activate bony release clause rather than buy Remy

5.) It seems this has developed very quickly, One minute he's on the tour, next we've accepted a bid for him! The ends always said if an offer of 10 mil or above comes in we would accept it, well done!

I really hope we get Lemar, but more than anything a quality centre back!

If we get both those things i think this window will have ended up really well.

I am well happy with Navy coming next year and Solanke looks a like an excellent prospect, though i hope we don't wast him like we have Grujic so far.

As for the OX, i really think, while i do not thinkg he is a brilliant player by any means, and does lack a football brain, i think he will fit in really well at LFC and surprise a few people (in a good way! :)
Come on you reds.




27 Aug 2017 19:21:39
Just wanted to add to everyone's glowing reports from todays match. in particular though i wanted to praise Henderson who not many people are mentioning.

When he plays we look so much better and having him and can is a solid combo in the middle of the park. Henderson's work rate was great and he moves play around well and can put in a great shift with some solid tackles and some lovely through balls.
Gomez i thought was excellent too.
Karius i still have concerns over. many have been saying for a while now to drop migs and play him, but for me he scares me everytime he has played. looks almost immature!
But, great game and even Moreno was good, so that's something to behold.


1.) 27 Aug 2017 20:35:25
Are u serious about Hendo. Is that quality you happy with. Not arguing about his work rate of the ball. With it is not nearly as the good as what we need in that position. We need a more technivally skilled player there. He may better further up the pitch but deffinately not as a DM.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 22:21:21
Gareth, Karius had next to nothing to do, all game bar two crosses he gobbled up in the box with authority. He may have been a bit too relaxed trying to play the ball out of the back twice BUT The kid made no mistakes and kept a clean sheet. So how was he shaky, exactly?

3.) 27 Aug 2017 23:25:01
Bingored. did you watch the match!

Twice he had the ball at his feet with plenty of time and it ended in a 50/ 50 tackle! Are you kidding me! If that's reliable then fine, but for me when there is no need for danger, why invite it? I pretty sure there was even a third event when he tried to take on a player and almost ended badly.
Watch the game first

Riedwaan, no i am not kidding. When he plays we look a lot better and most the time this is the case. You want gifted technical players, but that's part of the game only and if we had 11 coutinho we would be thrashed every game imo. What he does he does very well, and does not get the credit he deserves at all. Lucas never did either, perhaps because he wasnt the most technical either?

Crazy imo.

4.) 28 Aug 2017 13:17:53
Gareth, I did watch the game and you are simply knit-picking for no reason. Karius tried to play out of the back which is what they are told to do. He may have been a bit too confident BUT he did will with the crosses that came into the box and was decisive overall, the things Migs is poor at. I don't need to knit-pick to find Mingo's errors. They are there in plain sight. Migs is a failure and the facts prove that. Karius should be given the chance now to make the position his own and should be backed instead of being slated for kicking the ball into touch, something Migs does all the time BUT his apologists stay silent.

5.) 28 Aug 2017 20:35:19
I do not disagree that MIgs makes too many mistakes and i wish we had a top rate keeper. But for me, and i do not take part in bashing players at all, but its not the fact Karius almost gave away goals from silly mistakes, its that he doesn't even look bothered about it.
Those two 50/ 50s he had were not necessary. it was not like the player was close when he got the ball.



07 Aug 2017 11:33:40
Hello all and Eds
Just wondered if you know whether Firmino is currently happy at LFC?

I hope he is but with all the talks of coutinho moving i can't help think if he does, and with Lucas gone, the south american players may well want a move away.


{Ed002's Note - No idea, sorry.}

1.) 07 Aug 2017 12:28:24
It doesn't matter. He was hired to do a job, and he's doing it exceptionally well.
Tbh, Gareth, I don't see that it'll make much of a difference. Sometimes we overstate these things. Bobby will be fine and keep getting better.



29 Oct 2016 07:20:02
Really nervous for tonights game. I don't know why but always hate facing Palace, and away. i think its going to be a very hard game.
Love the way were playing currently and couldn't be happier with Klopp being at realm, just hope their big, tall players don't get too many balls in the box as defensively we could struggle.

1-3 (I am hoping)


1.) 29 Oct 2016 08:21:19
We'll do them mate.

2.) 29 Oct 2016 09:23:15
I'm the same, horrible away game! Always feel like everything goes wrong qtbselhurst Park! except a 6-1 win there opening day of the season in the 90's.

3.) 29 Oct 2016 09:45:11
Hopefully Matip will have Benteke in his back pocket. Palace will be trying to get in as many crosses as possible. All clubs know where Liverpool's weakness lies defensively. As long as we score more than the opposition then Bob's your uncle.

We just need to keep on sticking to our game plan. Press high, force the opposition into mistakes, attack in numbers and convert our chances.

Not going to be an easy fixture as Palace will try to do what UTD did and that is disrupt our quick passing game.

4.) 29 Oct 2016 10:23:05
No game is easy but I don't see Palace and Benteke as a threat, I think we'll do them without a doubt. well, I hope so anyway! We need to be beating teams like palace, it's what we've failed on in the past we need them 3 points to keep up there. Let's hope its like last weekened, other top end teams losing points and we get the 3, that'll do me just fine.

5.) 29 Oct 2016 11:04:44
We need to win this and the next home game before going away to the Saints as that my friends, will be our toughest game to date. But before all that, we have to beat CP to keep momentum going.

6.) 29 oct 2016 10:38:34
i really hope for a clean sheet tonight. with this team, nothing short of a win. there is nothing to panic about mate. christian b is static, he is got no movement to trouble us and for aerial duels, that's why we have matip. on the flanks, crystal palace has got skills but no end product so i fancy a win and a clean sheet here. although it has to be said that footie can be weird at times. paint selhurst red lads!

7.) 29 Oct 2016 12:22:10
Don't Care about clean sheet, any win will do.

Having sat in the pouring rain watching a woeful performance whilst we got beat 1-3 at Selhurst Park a couple of years ago (the absolute rock bottom of Rodgers reign), any win will do!



25 Jul 2016 20:21:49
I wish luck to Joe Allen.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 20:51:17
Good luck or bad luck? ;)

2.) 25 Jul 2016 21:01:23
Yeah good luck Joe. Gave 100% on the field, good professional.
Shame it didn't work out for him, didn't quite make the step up.

3.) 25 Jul 2016 21:31:44
Good luck and all the best in your future Joe.

For me he is a good squad player and i think will prove to be a good impact sub. Like many i rate his skills and with his natural left foot, he has proven that his shot from distance is worth a few quid alone. Work rate for me only issue, but maybe he is lazy with Stoke as he doesn't care so much about them?
That doesn't make it good by the way but hopefully we'll see a different side to him like with Switzerland.

I don't slate players but for me Karuis should go. Not because of one terrible performance but for me i have never seen evidence he is good enough. That would be fine but with exception of the final he doesn't seem to care enough about the mistakes he makes. YNWA is great but shouldn't be a hindrance.

I hope they do not put moreno on against Man City! Yes, i will be the first to say so far this season he hasn't been bad. but for sure against an attacking team like Man C, we need actual defenders and Robertson is far better than him.

i normally back our players but do not think karius should stay. I just do not think he is good enough at all. And its ok people saying you never walk alone but its not like these players aren't earning crazy money, so for me if there not good enough they should go.

i agree, sterling is well overrated. He is so similar to other young hopefuls we have had that can run at speed of light but after a few years they fade into nothing more than an ok squad player or impact sub.
