Do you think the club want Philippe Coutinho gone this January transfer window? All this can't be good for squad moral. For me the Summer would have made sense for all 3 parties, but Coutinho just wants out now. If he does stay and does not play all January then that won't help the club, as when he comes back, he's not going to be match fit again. Just got to get rid now.


1.) 03 Jan 2018 11:00:34
I want to keep him but if we sell him i hope we get keita now.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 11:17:53
We took a risk in the summer and in fairness it paid off as his attacking stats this season have been his best yet and unbelievably his defensive stats have been very similar to last season. However if we keep him this window I'm not sure if it will pay off again and could very easily come back to haunt us. It's a massive decision and I'm glad it's not me making it.

3.) 03 Jan 2018 11:52:48
I think whatever happens the club will want everything done out of the spotlight, last summer was ridiculous, if I was running the club I would be making it very clear to Coutinho that anymore antics by himself or his “concerned” family will only complicate matters and reduce the chance of a transfer, also make it perfectly clear to Barcelona what the price is and once it’s met they can have him and make it clear as well that we won’t accept any of this to be played out in public by them or anyone connected to them.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 12:07:51
Clubs am sure would want keeps but Couts wants gones. this Januari.

5.) 03 Jan 2018 12:47:17
I'll take whatever RBL is on.

6.) 03 Jan 2018 16:45:25
Eds what is the chance of getting keita this January.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}



18 Jul 2017 07:28:53
hi eds any truth in the Maxi Romero link.


{Ed025's Note - liverpool have been looking at him grino but as yet have not made an offer mate..

1.) 18 Jul 2017 11:16:48
Yes, but have we agreed terms with him yet? The offer can follow at some point 😉.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 11:51:50
I think we'll face a serious WP issue.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 11:55:19
Now I'm reading he had a CL injury. to get this kind of injury at 16 years of age. poor lad.

4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:37:15
Mammana and Romero - that's two players I signed in FM that were linked with us over the summer.

Which journo's raided my save? Expect links to Ben Davies, Lincoln, Konrad Laimer and Andre Schurrle soon.

5.) 18 Jul 2017 19:36:38
Lol -Something Red-

I guess since I haven't played FM for a few years they have moved onto new people xD

I signed Coutinho on FIFA13 and FM because he was called Phil and had crazy hair like me when I get out of bed. My dad always said laughing, "It’s you" every time we came across him in UT so we had to get him.

Then half a year later we signed him an wow what a signing!
Guess I need to find us some gems again haha

Anyway back on track, if we are going to buy a striker we only need a proper ready made 20+goals striker. We have enough young prospects all trying to break through and Solanke has already pushed some down.



30 Sep 2016 20:54:07
hi eds anything in the new link to Inaki Williams or just old recycled news?


{Ed001's Note - well we have continued to have him tracked, but I don't know of anything new in the pipework just now. I would not expect him to go anywhere until next summer, at the earliest. Bilbao have no reason to sell, so it would require the player wanting a move. They don't need the money, as they can't spend it on players.}

1.) 01 Oct 2016 08:19:57
Looks are real talent would mean someone would have to leave for us to sign him.

2.) 04 Oct 2016 19:16:18
Worth noting that Williams is born and bred in Bilbao, a proud Basque player, and even if we were to offer an acceptable fee (which would likely have to match the release clause of 50mil Euros) there is a strong possibility he'd simply not be interested. Very good player though, would suit the Premier League (and us) well.



20 Mar 2016 08:15:53
hi all eds are we looking at Koln duo Timo Horn and Jonas Hector or more paper talk.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}



01 Oct 2014 09:35:23
hi eds any truth in the Dele Alli rumour?


{Ed002's Note - He has extended his contract and it will be best for him if he stays where he is for a while. I am not aware of what "rumour" there might be right now, but Liverpool are very keen (as we have discussed before) - there is interest from elsewhere including Spurs and West Ham.}

Is Thomas lemar a target for the summer and if he is, if Arsenal make a bid, will that force us into making the move in this window?




03 Jan 2018 10:38:36
Macca, all your summer transfers have come off even if they did take a bit longer than you expected. Do you have any news on what is going to happen with Coutinho and Can this month?


1.) 03 Jan 2018 11:06:58
Cout is not going anywhere wether u like or not.
Klopp stance.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 11:10:13
mcheshi, yes he is mate.

3.) 03 Jan 2018 12:03:47
Macca is always worth the wait. He makes this site worth coming back again and again.



21 Aug 2017 07:48:09
i don't get the comment Coutinho has done a lot for us. if some one was to pay me £150000 a week I would do more than play football for them. I feel these players forget where they came from and the next time coutinho plays he should look round the ground and think these fans that I say I feel so much for that are paying my wages. about 98% of them won't earn than in about 5 years work. and in brazil with the wages of about £230 a month. as for a south American dreams of playing for Barcelona or real that's bull they a dream of playing in Europe because they know that's where the money is that's why some will go play in the Ukraine or some other league like that none of them won't to play there as kids its all about the money driven by agents.


1.) 21 Aug 2017 08:03:59
Unfortunately Grino the whole game is driven by money. I don't think we'll ever see one club players like Carra or Gerrard again. I know they were handsomely rewarded for staying at the club but it's very rare that neither had their head turned. Gerrard did at one point and could have gone to Chelsea and won the title but he didn't. He stayed.
Loyalty is non existent when money and agents are concerned. They're all vultures but it's a business and like any business if you spend £8 mill on a player and someone offers £113 mill then you've made £105 mill profit over 4/ 5 years on that player. There's no where else that gets you a return like that. Footballers are transient and they come and go. Better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

{Ed002's Note - Gerrard went to LAG.}

2.) 21 Aug 2017 08:14:19
Loyalty is directly proportional to ( trophies / titles, Money )
We have money but do not have the other two!

3.) 21 Aug 2017 09:44:34
Ed002 - Gerrard moving to LA is completely different. John Terry moved to Villa, would you call him loyal to Chelsea? Gerrard left because his game time was being managed and he wanted to play every week. He doesn't have too many questions to answer in my book regarding loyalty.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what it has got to do with John Terry or with loyalty. The message said that Gerrard was a "one club player" - he wasn't.}

4.) 21 Aug 2017 10:09:20
Give a player enough of a financial incentive and watch his 'loyalty' evaporate. Even Le Tissier would probably be earning mega-bucks in China if he was still playing.
There aren't many hometown players playing for their local clubs anymore so why would a Brazilian kid hang around Liverpool when he has the chance of a huge payday, guaranteed trophies and plenty of sunshine and sangria?

5.) 21 Aug 2017 10:33:45

Coutinho is on a mega salary at Liverpool and I don't see him moving to any money rich clubs in England or overseas. He has not made himself available for any random suitors who will double his wages. And I don't see him earning £300k per week at Barcelona either. You could blame him for anything except MONEY. He is not money driven. For his class and quality he would be paid good at any club including Liverpool. If it was about money he would easily get another pay rise at liverpool. He could move to Chelsea or City for a pay rise!

The Lad wants Barcelona and only Barcelona. Nothing to do with MONEY and Barcelona competes for titles year in year out!

6.) 21 Aug 2017 11:27:48
Carra is a farce. ask yourself would you ever see Gerrard donning an everton top for BT money, he'd tell BT to p off. as soon as sky waved the cash at carra he became another football puppet.

7.) 21 Aug 2017 12:14:24
Ed002 they call it soccer in America so he went and played another sport!

8.) 21 Aug 2017 12:41:49
We can't Defend ( maybe you need to change your name to We can't Read) as I said, payday, trophies, sunshine, sangria.
And of course, Coutinho would love to play for Barcelona for half his current wages if need be because he only wants to play for them and its nothing to do with money, right?

9.) 21 Aug 2017 12:57:19
He wouldn't need to take a pay cut at Barca! They would pay him what he deserves for! He is no small fish mate. They see him as the next INIESTA and I have not seen anyone across 10 leagues in Europe who would replace Iniesta.
You could ommit pay day from the list! The rest make sense. The most important is TROPHIES!

He could have all those at Real Madrid as well! Is he moving there?

10.) 21 Aug 2017 12:59:44

Did Stevie G not release his autobiography in the $un?
Give me an Everton top any day over that and Everton were his boyhood club.

11.) 22 Aug 2017 01:33:44
Maldini was a 1 club player And perhaps my fave ever player (Non Liverpool of course) and Buffon is my fave gk they are two very loyal players.



20 Aug 2017 09:58:41
hi ed001 if VVD and naby became available for about £140m-£160m would we have the money to sign both or would we need to sell coutinho. if we go and win Wednesday things will change with funds and players wanting to come.


{Ed001's Note - it is not that simple. How would the payment terms be structured for that money? Would that be an outright payment or be including add ons? Does that include fees? Etc etc.}

1.) 20 Aug 2017 10:21:25
That's crazy money for both players. Utterly crazy.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 10:21:36
like you said before ed001 the money is to complicated to explain. I was just wondering with maaca's comments that he expected both one more. and to keep phil and which would have been one hell of an outlay by the club. with all the hidden fees that you tells us about that people don't seem to take into account. thanks again ed001.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure that the club would find a way to get the money for both. It might mean loans, but the income from the new TV deal does allow us more flexibility, though it could well impact future transfer windows if we spend too much.}

3.) 20 Aug 2017 10:22:43
Your right Ed don't talk to us about money it does confuse us. Anyway most of us on here need to take our shoes and sock's off to count above 10.

{Ed002's Note - I had always susprected Liverpool supporters had many more toes than most.}

4.) 20 Aug 2017 11:24:19
Eds I know you don't like talking finance but seems as the can of worms is already open here thought I would chance my arm. Regarding the tv money that all clubs get. Is that a 1 off payment of the full lot or is it spread out over a season or longer.

{Ed002's Note - It is paid in two amounts.}

5.) 20 Aug 2017 11:42:34
Cheers for the reply ed.



16 Aug 2017 11:26:49
hi ed001 what do you think about william carvalho with transfer fees at the way they are £40m seem ok if what they say about him is true. I myself have not seen enough of him but he is dm that we could do with as everybody seems to think.


{Ed001's Note - I remain unconvinced by him personally. I have seen him look an absolute donkey and really sluggish, though people rave about his speed and power.}

1.) 16 Aug 2017 11:44:38
He is a typical Rafa Benitez player and I am surprised he did not move in for him! Proper stopper and nothing more nothing less!

2.) 16 Aug 2017 11:45:11
haha ed 001 classic!

3.) 16 Aug 2017 12:00:14
It's his lack of pace that will be his undoing in the prem I think, he also has a bit of a reputation for being lazy which is an awful trait for a holding midfielder.
The best holding midfielder in the prem (up there with the best in the world) is Kante, imagine if he was slow and lazy?
He however seems really strong and I remember watching him in the u21 euros a few years back thinking he would become a beast, its obvious he hasn't kicked on as he seems to be heading to West Ham and not a big European club. There is obviously a reason for this.

4.) 16 Aug 2017 12:24:12
SInce he broke his leg he hasn't seemed half the player. He's slower and less prone to tackle.

I thought TAA had a bad game, and has been a bit be low top level at late but young players will go through spells like this. for me he his head and shoulders above Gomez and Clyne there. We could go and get a new right back in the summer but for me come next season he will be a lot better, have to remember this is his first full season.

as for Lovren he lost the header for the first goal against 6 ft 3 in forward sorry guys this will happen and then got outmuscled by the same player for the second goal but after that Can could have done more. we have a lot of young players who will learn from games like this and come back stronger.

i hope his form continues but we still need a world class keeper, you all telling me if we buy alisson becker your not sure who would be number 1. if we want to be challenging for the title against that city side there can be no doubt about being world class because come the summer city will get stronger so we have to as well. and 18 points is a massive gap to close so if there is any position in the team that can be improved we need do it. look at pep bought bravo was not good enough so replaced next season now look at the difference this season.

Would we let him leave for free or demand a fee, if we do let him leave for free my bet would be Leeds to finish his playing days at his boyhood club.

don't think Can has had a bad season for us in fact I think it has been his best he has got 6 months left and I think he will give his all and until he does not how does he deserve to be dropped. the only reason has the eds have said many times before he wants to go to be first choice and he won't be next year when Naby comes.

who was the last Chelsea player to come through the academy and play regularly in there first team the only one I can remember is terry I know they have send loads of player on loan but none are getting anywhere with Chelsea. arsenal seem to do it most then they just seem to not get anywhere with them and leave after a few season like Coquelin. am not having a go at any of the teams and I know we need to get better but that is just football today to easy for managers to get sacked to risk young players getting in the teams know.

as ed025 all ways says get your red tinted glass off Karius is just as bad as Migs if not worse look at the free kick he let in this year in the champions league think that's 11 games this season 2 mistakes that has led to goals and with only 3 wins from the 6 champions league games that we was in total control of them all. can't remember Karius making one save that made me think that's won us the games and as many mistakes as migs has made at end of last season he won us points with some good saves to get us champions league. my be when he makes a mistake he sulk because he knows what he is going to get for next month.
