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!

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.



28 Jun 2016 08:53:11
Hello ED01
If you have time could you give me your assessment of Mane please? I have checked search and probably missed same question so apologise up front.

I personally think he is a really good player and will do well for us. i know nothing about his attitude and i do think the price is to high, otherwise very happy if news true.


{Ed001's Note - he is quick, skilful and strong, with a good delivery, if a little inconsistent. On the pitch he is excellent. One of the better wingers around right now.

The issues are his attitude, he has been known to miss training and team meetings, he also spent most of the winter sulking and underperforming for Southampton after they blocked a move to Man Utd in January.

Also there are the African Nations, which are not as much of a problem now, but still something to consider. On his day though, he is totally unplayable, we just have to trust in Klopp to get the best from him.}

1.) 28 Jun 2016 12:07:05
thanks as always my good man.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 12:13:47
He needs to really knuckle down and work hard.
He's at a "big" club now so hopefully the sulking is behind him and he turns out to be a world beater.

3.) 28 Jun 2016 12:19:08
Edd001 with mane likely coming, who's your front 3/ 4?

{Ed001's Note - depends on the game.}

4.) 28 Jun 2016 12:27:30
He's at that club now. 2 years before a move to a Bayern, psg or Madrid becomes a real possibility and the only way to get there is to smash it for us now.

Hopefully this is it for him, we have just purchased one of the best wingers around. pace and power in abundance and that player that terrifies defences. The one who makes them wet there undies.

He will bring coutinho and firmino to life.

Klopps someone who shows constant love so he won't be missing that, he will be allowed to perform and if he does it well he won't know anything like what he will when the crowd sing a mane song.

Onto the next targets get it all wrapped up and start dreaming.

5.) 28 Jun 2016 12:14:26
My view, simply overpaid, but brilliant player. Pace, Power and Goals. A gamble which must pay off.



26 Jun 2016 11:33:40
Sorry Eds someone has asked before but wondered how exiting Europe will effect European competitions and whether it will likely put up prices for foreign transfers here, both in price and numbers allowed?



{Ed002's Note - The UK is looking to exit the EU and not UEFA - it makes no difference.}

1.) 26 Jun 2016 13:30:56
The only difference would be the temporary visas they would need to play in the countries wouldn't it ED?

{Ed002's Note - For some but not for others - as it is now.}



15 Apr 2016 09:16:57
to Ed01.
How much did you enjoy that game? Did you believe we could do it?
I didn't at 0-2, nevermind 1-3!

What a game. Who were the best players for lfc in your opinion?

Also did you go to the game?


{Ed001's Note - enjoy the game? Not much, I was too busy having heart attacks until Lovren won it! Though I always believe that we can do it, no matter how far behind we are.

Origi has to be the mom for us.

No mate, I wish.}

1.) 15 Apr 2016 17:44:38
I would like to take credit for yesterday's win. After we went 2 down after 9 mins, I switched over and watched the rugby instead. I kept an eye on Twitter and noticed that we scored so I switched it back on. Within a minute of me watching again they scored and that's when I realised that me watching was jinxing the team/ score, so I switched off and didn't put it back on even when it went to 3-3 and then 4-3 because I knew that if I did switch it on, they would score.
I accept gifts and thanks from anybody and everybody, you are all very welcome.

I just hope Grujic gets some games this season and won't become another waste of money who will sell on as never got a chance?

For me though, even if he doesn't like a more defensive role, he would be a great stopper mid park. i see him as a central player who plays similar to viera (though not that good yet)

He probably wouldn't start, but for all you saying he isn't good enough. think of all the times last year when we had injuries. He needs work and i do not think he could ever be world class but he does have pace, he does pass the ball often when he should, he would probably suit our play and we need someone who could come on as a sub via injury or whatever and make an impact. i think he could.

23 Jun 2017 15:54:23
he is can stay fit, while i do not think he is excellent at all, i think he would play a better game with the way we are playing football and we do need players that can make a difference from the bench, but i agree he wouldn't make my starting 11.still think he would actually surprise a few with his contribution.

they would pay that much for a 28 year old, if that is his age, the question is more would he come to us i think. He would fit like a glove.

18 Jun 2017 21:45:27
I am sure most teams would be interested in him. IMO he is a great player and he seems like a good enough bloke. He even looks like the sort of player that would fit in with our boys. But i could be way off.

I do not think we have much of a chance of getting him, but i do not believe if he was interested that Klopp would say "no thanks. " I think he would do everything he could to get him.

Wont happen but i shall dream of it anyway.

Ed02, i am not making excuses at all, if its wrong its wrong, but according to some ex professional, this goes on all the time in football today. I don't understand it well enough but they say (several people including nicol) that there is a lot more fuss being made of all these tapping allegations than there should be.

Like i said i am just asking, not defending.


{Ed002's Note - Clubs do not talk to players all of the time. You can argue that players will talk to other players - some at the behest of clubs (something Liverpool are also guilty of), and agents will overstep the mark on occasion but it is rare that clubs and managers arrange meetings with players. There is not more fuss than necessary being made because Liverpool and Klopp are repeat offenders.}

Ed25 i couldn't agree more, and the game has been going this way for a long time. I love LFC and the premiership is exciting but one thing i have noticed over the last 30 years is not only how money has ruined the game and like you said made players into pop stars, but also it is hard to find players with any character!

They all say the same, safe things in interviews. At least Gazza had a laugh! That is why when the world cup is on i always support the African teams, because they look like they are having fun and running at players, rather than worrying about making mistakes.


{Ed025's Note - your right gareth, a lot of them dont look as though they enjoy it!. half of them would not crack a smile if they seen a chair walk mate.. :)

no not a contradiction. When he is given space he is very creative, but like i said my worry is he won't get that space in premiership?




Click To View This Thread

01 Jun 2017 08:29:59
he is technically great. My only concern with him is whether he is big enough to handle the premiership?
He is great in space if given though and would help unlock teams that defend deep and in numbers.
