I see the rumours linking us to Draxler are doing the round again - anything in this Eds? Seems odd for us to be looking at someone who can play the Salah/ Mane position unless of course we see him playing centre mid so as a replacement for someone like Lallana.


{Ed002's Note - Yes there is something in it. He is certainly not seen as a replacement for Lallana but has the potential to be considered an addition to the other two whereas Coutinho was there previously - in the same way as Lemar would have been used - more centrally than a simple winger.}

1.) 18 Mar 2018 12:59:00
Absolutely delighted to hear we are in for him. He is such a wonderful player and something we are missing when teams sit deep as he can carry the ball and slice apart defence with a pass. good to be linked with jorginho and draxler. Keita already signed. Good times ahead.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 14:28:13
Draxler could become exceptional under Klopp but I'm kinda worried about how he never seems to settle and moves around quite a bit. He also seems to want to return to Germany all the time so I can imagine him bolting from us if Bayern come calling after a good season or two with us.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 12:50:44
Thank you so much for the information ed002.much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

4.) 18 Mar 2018 15:41:29
Excellent update ed002 appreciated. So is draxler and alternative to Lemar?

{Ed002's Note - I would not put it that way. I would forget Lemar.}

5.) 18 Mar 2018 16:35:59
Cheers Ed002!

6.) 18 Mar 2018 17:02:19
Thanks Ed002!

7.) 18 Mar 2018 17:08:59
Cheers Ed. I would love Draxler to join tbh.

8.) 18 Mar 2018 17:23:05
I think he’s over-rated tbh.

9.) 18 Mar 2018 17:39:45
Ed02, Draxler is a class player and is a talent. However, isn't one of the reason Wolfsburg let him go was because of his attitude. Has he shown some maturity since his move to PSG? Has interest moved in from Lemar due to players desire or price? I know you do not like to talk about players that are no longer in the loop. Also Macca said he had messaged the name of a French player the club was looking at, is that player still in the plans.

{Ed002's Note - No there is an issue - he came out in January and said he would join Real Madrid, Barcelona or return to Germany. Forget what Macfadden said, all it did was foul up the site for a week and get me a bunch of abuse.}

10.) 18 Mar 2018 18:08:21
Cheers Ed!

11.) 18 Mar 2018 18:17:44
Forget draxler an if he ain't on our radar then jib Lamar, I am watching leicster an mahrez is brilliant we should of went for him, I think Leicester were asking for fantasy money which was no were near accurate, if we could get him for a reasonable price I think he would flourish under klopp, also vardy as striker well worth a punt brings that nasty edge up front an could b great support for bobby.

12.) 18 Mar 2018 19:00:24
Leicester stilll want stupid money for Mahrez and I’ve seen nothing today that makes me think he’s worth it. Draxler could be a bargain given that PSG want rid. Cheers for the info ED.

13.) 18 Mar 2018 19:21:12
Still say Mahrez is the best fit around for us, plays a very similar system already.

14.) 18 Mar 2018 22:07:30
After losing to Real Madrid, Draxler came out and mouthed off about Emery being too defensive blah blah blah. Is this something he is prone to do? We already have too many players who do too much of their talking off the pitch.



04 Feb 2017 13:25:32
Any legs in the Handanovic to Liverpool rumours Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know but if Mignolet were to leave in the summer and Handanovic were happy to be a back up to Karius perhaps. It would obviously mean the end for Ward if that happened.}



31 Aug 2015 16:47:21
Press reports linking us with Yarmolenko and/or Blaszczykowski again Eds - anything in these rumours?

Also talk of a RM bid for Moreno - any truth in that? I guess the player wouldn't turn that down!


{Ed001's Note - nothing as far as I am aware in any of those. Madrid are busy trying to sort out De Gea and running out of time fast.}



08 Jan 2015 15:42:16
Telegraph reckon Suso to AC Milan not happening - perhaps there is a chance for him yet at Anfield.


1.) 08 Jan 2015 21:26:58
Its a done deal mate .

2.) 09 Jan 2015 14:27:23
I think the bridges between Liverpool and Suso are pretty much burned. One of the Eds said he was trying to leave last season too.

I don't blame the guy to be honest. Especially when the likes of Balotelli who has done absolutely nothing come in and get given a spot in the starting 11 or bench.

Eds, I know we don't talk money but what's the logic behind clubs spending vast sums of cash in January on players who can be signed for free in the summer? I'm thinking Sanchez obviously given the numbers being spouted in the press.


{Ed002's Note - It gives MU an edge over MC.}



06 Jan 2018 12:08:24
Eds what are the options open to a ref if he hears racist abuse? Can he reprimand a player immediately ie with a red card or does any action have to be taken retrospectively?

If - as is being reported today - Firmino racially abused Holgate then the ref must have heard it given where he was stood at the time. He should have been able to send Firmino off for me if it's true - if the ref can't do that then there needs to be a rule change if the FA are serious about stamping it out.

Having seen it on the tellybox I can definitely see the word 'Puta' which isn't necessarily racist but I don' know if anything happened off camera.


{Ed001's Note - he can show a red and he would include it in his report, which would mean further action could be taken by the FA. The fact he has taken no action against Firmino, even after consultation with the 4th official and hearing from Holgate, suggests he has heard nothing of that kind. Everton could still file a complaint against Firmino if they choose to, even if the ref does not act, as no cards were shown.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 14:28:36
Presumably it was caught on the ref’s head mic? And presumably a recording of this is kept for investigations of this kind. So should be very easy to assess.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 15:09:11
Ed01, I agree with your assessment. Everton can file a complaint as that is their right. However, the ref was on top of the situation nd was the first to stop Firmino from knocking the block out of Colgate and since Firmino swore at Colgate one foot from the ref, he was in good position to hear the whole thing. Now, I don't know if something else was said after the fact BUT we shall see. IMO, the ref heard nothing and did not send Bobbie off, this will be a "he said-he said" and nothing more.

{Ed001's Note - he was almost leaning over the ref as he shouted so I don't understand how anyone can think the ref would not have heard anything untoward.}

3.) 06 Jan 2018 15:53:49
Can Holgate be retrospectively punished for the shove? Or because the red saw it and chose not to card him, is this out of the FAs hands?



23 Dec 2017 09:53:13
Eds, with Mignolet having another howler last night to add to his glowing history do you know if the club are actively looking for new keepers at the minute?

TBH I'd like to see Karius given another run as he's looked OK in the CL games, however I was wondering if we might be in the market for someone else.


1.) 23 Dec 2017 10:48:12
Exactly, I'd rather us give Karius a chance, he's done really well this season, why some think we need to go out and buy a new GK is beyond me, all we need to do is drop Migs and give Karius a go, if he does terrible the rest of the season then fair enough in the summer go for a new GK but I think the lad will do well. I fear if he doesn't get his 1st spot he may want to leave and that'd be a real shame because I think there's something about him, I really think he'd do well with us, we may never know.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 11:08:07
Karius will play in the next game or I'll lose faith in Klopp. It's not a gamble putting Karius in, it's a gamble playing mignolet. Fans would not blame Klopp if Karius made howlers. We would all just be like, okay so we need to get a new gk.

3.) 23 Dec 2017 11:30:08
Yeah true Benny mate, I fully agree with you, we'd respect Klopp a lot more if he dropped Migs. I really like Klopp and have supported him with so much but this is his mistake, if he plays Migs next game it makes no sense and is simply terrible management. Does Migs hold some secret photos of Klopp and using it against him or what lol. ' Play me or these will be released to the public'.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 11:39:14
For me that was Mignolet's worst ever performance for us last night and that takes some doing on his previous performances. I would not bet any money on Karius becoming our no 1 though. Every man and his dog can see it bar Klopp.

5.) 23 Dec 2017 12:01:39
Spot on, boys. Karius got slaughtered and dropped for doing WAY less than Migs has done at LFC and frankly, there is no longer a debate as to who is the better GK. None whatsoever. If Klopp wants to geta whole lot of pressure on himself for no reason and get sacked as a result, he should continue with Migs and see if the fans won't turn on him cos as of then, any mistakes Migs makes will be blamed on Klopp. It's his choice.

6.) 23 Dec 2017 12:19:01
BRover I think you’ve forgotten Karius’s display against Bournemouth and the reaction. It was a clanger that Migs would have been impressed by and the reaction was typical of the premier league.
It was no more exaggerated than any other fan reaction to a mistake. The difference is Karius is not mentally strong enough to take it. That’s a concern.



20 Dec 2017 17:29:29
Eds, any idea what the club have planned for young Brewster? Be nice to see him on the bench perhaps at some point or are we liklely to lose him to another club soon?


{Ed002's Note - He is just a kiddie who still attends school and cannot be loaned out. There are clubs interested in taking him when he turns 18. The club will want to keep him.}

1.) 20 Dec 2017 17:56:30
Thanks Ed002. Just thinking how Fowler and Owen were first team regulars at a similar age and wondering if Brewster may end up making a career elsewhere if we don't give him a first team opportunity soon.

{Ed002's Note - You think Liverpool should start playing a 17 year old so he doesn't leave for a career elsewhere? Other clubs play kids when they see that they are ready to step up - I would be surprised if Liverpool started to play them just to keep them happy.}

2.) 20 Dec 2017 18:47:39
Very good player but miles away from being ready, u23's are his level for now. let him get used to that level first. He might be ready for a few appearances in the cups next season but he looks the part. great group the u18's this year.

3.) 20 Dec 2017 20:02:47
Bit harsh Ed002, was only pointing out that we never used to be afraid of using a young player - if he's really not ready for the 1st team yet then fair enough but if other clubs are sniffing around then perhaps they do think he's ready and if that's the case it would be stupid of Liverpool to let him walk away without having given him a chance.

{Ed002's Note - As long as the club are happy to take a risk over results they can play who ever they want.}

4.) 20 Dec 2017 20:31:51
What clubs? he's 17.he would struggle for game time in the Championship never mind the Premier League. Juventus have been mentioned on here but does anyone think with the forwards they have that Brewster would be any better off there?

{Ed002's Note - And Dortmund - try the search engine.}

5.) 20 Dec 2017 20:49:21
Same applies to them as Juve, would be well down the pecking order. Young Sancho isn't exactly getting much gametime there is he.

{Ed002's Note - You don’t understand.}

6.) 20 Dec 2017 21:01:30
Same as Juve at Dortmund. just look at Sancho.

7.) 20 Dec 2017 21:14:24
Enlighten me.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs look around to find the young talent - Dortmund have approach sera English sides about play. Whilst the Liverpool fans think just about all of theiir players are rubbish, other clubs don’t and both are able to provide players with a planned development path something Liverpool Dre unable to do.}

8.) 20 Dec 2017 21:20:02
Surely it comes down to the lads attitude. If he has a good head on his shoulders and realises that he needs to learn his trade and wait for his opportunity when it comes, then he'll be fine at Liverpool for a while yet. If he gets to an age where he feels ready for the next step but doesn't see himself getting at here, then he has a decision to make. That decision is surely a few years down the track.

{Ed002's Note - He’s already moved once to because the opportunities might be better. Why do you think he left Chelsea after 7 years or whatever.}

9.) 20 Dec 2017 21:35:39
World of differene between Liverpool and Chelsea. young players just don't get a chance there whereas Klopp has proved himself to be a great manager for young players to be around. just look at Solanke, highly rated by everyone in football yet going nowhere at Chelsea, a couple of months at Liverpool he's starting merseyside derbies and getting in England squads.

10.) 21 Dec 2017 07:18:37
I’m not a Chelsea fan but some they have the best youth set up imo you just need to look at some other the growing coming through.

I agree with you Big Emre regarding their futures. Mourinho was the biggest culprit for not promoting the youth.

11.) 21 Dec 2017 08:59:21
It's also worth pointing out that when the likes of Owen and Fowler were coming through, anyone could choose to leave school the second they hit 16 in principal. Now they have to remain in education at least part time until they are 18. Together with the UEFA (FIFA? ) rules about the contracts young players are allowed, it is pointless comparing today with the start of the PL era, it's just too different legally to matter.



14 Aug 2017 07:55:20
Eds, maybe a stupid question but could our relative lack of transfer movement so far have any link to whether or not we get past Hoffenheim and into the CL proper?

Justva thought that we may be waiting on that as a better sales pitch for our targets.


{Ed001's Note - nope.}

It does seem a bit rich all this criticism for losing to United at their own place. We probably deserve more criticism for failing to break them down at Anfield.

Anyone else think that right back isn't that much of a problem position and that this might hinder the development of Gomez and Alexander-Arnold?

My guess is that there is more to this than we've heard, I mean should the driver have been filming anyway and what exactly has been said, however. I agree it doesn't look too good does it!


{Ed001's Note - I don't care what was said, what he has done is reprehensible. He has been the first to criticise players for spitting.}

You coming around to VVD now Ed01? I seem to recall you weren't his biggest fan when we were first linked with him? TBH I hadn't seen enough of him previously to comment but he seems to have improved our defending since he signed!


{Ed001's Note - impossible to judge him when we have not exactly faced a lot of attacks since he arrived. I still don't like him alongside Matip but it is a decent pairing with Lovren so far.}

Which league table you looking at 'Fatboy. '? In the title hunt with United and Chelski? Given we're above Chelsea now and only 3 points behind united surely we're already in the title hunt? oh, hang on, City are miles ahead of all of us.
