Hey eds, what do you make of Ballotellis agent saying he will be staying at the club next season? Do you think the club won't be able to drop their price enough to sell him on?


{Ed002's Note - It is posturing to get to a price where a deal can be done elsewhere. As I have explained, Liverpool want way too much. Mino will posture until he gets his way.}

1.) 27 May 2015 21:57:37
Balotelli, from what I observed last season, is worth f@:kall!!
to get him off the wage-bill would be an achievement.
Personally, I'd make him stay and put him in goal 'cos Mignolet's sh"t!!
On the positive side, Liverpool cast-off Iago Aspas has a Europa League winners medal in his back-pocket!



04 Feb 2015 19:42:10
Hey eds, just was wondering what is your take on Lovren's situation, he is left out of the squad again tonight. do you think he has been cast aside and could be moved on? Or do you feel is more down to the change of formation and he just isn't doing enough to get into the team? Or do you see him playing more next season when Can potentially moves more into a central midfield position when Gerrard leaves us? Would be curious to hear your opinion on his Liverpool future.


{Ed001's Note - he is not happy and right now it is likely he will be off in the summer. Things change though, and he has a few months to get back into the reckoning.}

1.) 04 Feb 2015 21:56:47
He's another player we shouldn't have bought. . a one-season wonder at Southampton. The best season of an otherwise average career and we paid through the nose for him.
He'll end up going for peanuts and we'll continue to rue our treatment of better centre-halves like Kelly, Wisdom, Llori, Agger and Toure.
Southampton must get their best china out when they see us walking towards their offices. It's like our foreign aid policy.

2.) 04 Feb 2015 23:27:24
Cheers eds, i had a feeling that this was likely where he was at. I'd love though for him to break back into the squad, same way Sakho has done, but sadly i don't think that will happen.

3.) 04 Feb 2015 23:35:34
Would anyone want him ed? if so we would struggle to get half our money back.It's a very odd situation because he looked boss for Southampton but just looks lost in an Lpool shirt A return to Southampton seems unlikely due to the fuss he kicked up when they rejected bids from us. I just hope if Lovren were to go we would give Ilori and Wisdom a chance at the club rather than spending a lot more money on another centre back

4.) 05 Feb 2015 09:55:06
Is the story true about Gerrard going to throttle him after one of the games? Personally I think he will be fine once he is fully settled and the pressure is off him a little next season. A bit like Hendo.

5.) 05 Feb 2015 12:45:49
Surely we scouted him properly prior to his move and thought he had the required qualities, even if I didn't rate him I would err on trusting the club as I'm one of those who wrote off Henderson and have had to eat my words.

If it did happen there must be massive questions asked of the transfer committee. Its the scouting network that really needs an overhaul at Liverpool in my opinion. We seem to spend an awful lot of money for an small amount of improvement.

Though on the flip side I am actually quite happy with most of the business done over the summer, overpriced but some really good potential.

Loafmaster Flex

{Ed002's Note - The scouting set up has been overhauled.}

6.) 05 Feb 2015 13:38:51
You'd have to question why he isn't getting another chance in the team with the new set up. Yes he was awful at the start of the season, but absolutely everyone was. I'd like to see him with Sakho on the ground with him, Lucas in front of him and a partially revitalized Mingolet giving him a little bit more direction

7.) 05 Feb 2015 23:13:59
I don't think he was tried as part of a three man defense.
Maybe that would help him.

8.) 06 Feb 2015 03:49:54
its kinda unfair to alienate him. when we needed a CB i would put him there ahead of Johnson to be honest.

9.) 06 Feb 2015 05:07:22
Can you elaborate on the overhaul Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - It is as simple as staff being changed - Mel Johnson, Alan Harper and Mike McGlynn have left and others have arrived.}

10.) 08 Feb 2015 20:06:22
How come a perfectly good player turned into a shadow of his former self after being coached by Brendan & co. What the hell did they do to him?

11.) 10 Feb 2015 11:02:21
I think Lovren will come good when Brendan eventually deems him ready to step back into the first team. Look at the transformation Sakho has made.

Best of luck to our red men in Kiev. Win or lose im so proud of this team and the epic journey we have had this season. No one and i mean no one expected us to be sitting here 2 hours before a Champions league final and actually be confident of beating the current european champions.

Thanks to all the eds for the hard work ye do for us. Really hope we all enjoy tonight, i think we will win it. Nerves are totally shot already. I had to go to the cliffs of moher in the west of irelqnf today to take my mind off the match.

I know our boys will do us proud. You all will never walk alone. Everyone enjoy the game and the aftermath and be safe.


1.) 26 May 2018 17:52:23
Good post. Have to say, I did say we could win the ucl this year. Right from the start.



17 Mar 2018 14:28:51
Hey eds, have been trying to find out who the winners of our tie with city will play, i assumed it was the winners of Barcas game, am i wrong?

As for the tie, i am fairly happy ( though my brother is convinced it was a fix from Uefa to try and knock at least 1 english team out, nothing would surprise me) . Its goimg to be a cracking double leg. can't actually call it.


{Ed002's Note - The semi-final draw will happen after the games have been played - April 13 from memory. Oh and Kev, tell your brother he is an idiot.}

1.) 17 Mar 2018 15:23:19
Cheers ed2, i always thought they made the semi final draw the same time as the quarter finals.

Haha thanks ed2 i will tell him don't worry.

Happy St Patrick's Day from Galway! :D.

{Ed002's Note - Enjoy your day, I did have a quick drink in Molly Bloom’s earlier.}

2.) 17 Mar 2018 15:42:48
Has to be to done bud. Hope you enjoyed it.

{Ed002's Note - A gin and tonic was just what was needed after the long walk.}



12 Mar 2018 14:58:58
I read something that all top 4 in the PL will go straight into the Champions league next season without the need for qualifiers, is that correct?

Going through the game on saturday, I don't think we can have too much complaints, apart from the clear penalties we should have had. But performance wise, I hate the comments giving out about TAA and Lovren, as regards TAA, he has been immense all season, and for such a young player has been incredible. He got caught out in a big game, it happens, he will learn from that hopefully and improve his game. As regards Lovren, he got bet in the air by a great forward that led to the goals, it happens really, he was very good for the rest of the game.

While Milner was fantastic I have to say, I do think we badly missed Hendo on saturday. His range of passing and linking defence to attack is sublime, you only need to look at the Newcastle game last weekend to show his worth, maybe had we had him he could have found that pass or forced the players out more wide. But it was inevitable that Utd would sit back and park the bus, but we could have exploited that had we gone more wide and stretched Utd's defence. I think we can go away proud though from Old Trafford, this defeat for me hurts less compared to other times we have have lossed, and to score there, albeit an own goal, that was only Utd's 7th goal conceded this season at home. Pick ourselves up and go again, i do feel we still can and will get 2nd place, though champions league is the goal.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 19:35:24
Kevlaw, all 4 go straight to the CL proper next season.

question for the eds, with City after winning the League Cup, Jamie Redknapp said that this team as the potential to dominate the league and europe and that other PL teams should be very afraid, so my question is, how far do ye feel Liverpool are away from this City team, it was mentioned on Sly sports that Liverpool could be potential Champions. So goalkeeping issues aside, or assuming we get a top class keeper, how close or far away is this team?
Thanks Eds.


{Ed025's Note - not very far away i would say kev, once naby comes and a top class keeper then i believe liverpool will be serious competition for city, injuries could be a factor of course as i dont think the reds squad has a great deal of depth, but as a team they are not far off mate..

1.) 25 Feb 2018 20:29:51
Ed25.I really do admire your assessment of our team, especially as you’re an Everton fan, fair play to you mate.

{Ed025's Note - im a football fan drogie and just say it as i see it mate..

2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:33:57
Starting 11 not far at all

Squad miles away.

3.) 25 Feb 2018 21:02:52
Thanks for the reply Ed25, I tend to agree with your assessment. I do think Naby will be a massive player for us, hopefully we can get that top class keeper in. I think possibly another CB but I feel VVD will improve every cb we have at the club. Our defence already looks to be improving with every game. But i do agree, our squad depth still needs improving, but as far as recruitment has gone under Klopp, we have drastically improved I feel compared to recent years. Hopefully we continue on that trend.


{Ed025's Note - i think you will kev...and its breaking my heart mate.. :)

4.) 25 Feb 2018 21:24:14
We are not far away at all from City, as Ed25 has said. We need to get in more players in the mold of our quality front three in other areas of the pitch to help us get to that next level. Also, consistency needs to be improved and we need to SERIOUSLY cut down on points dropped from winning positions as that is what is killing us (linked with consistency issues) .

As per squad depth, I recently saw Pep making a fool of himself, saying his team lacks depth as he only has 16 players to choose from right after they drew with Burnley. Yeah, go figure. The manager of the richest club, is complaining of lack of depth. As for our depth, we need to upgrade that as well and the GK, we'll have to see what happens cos if Allison is a non starter and Navas (I pray, does not come) then Karius is who Klopp will turn to as he signed him and IMO, STILL wants him to be no. 1 BUT Karius will have to keep getting it done till season's end and he's on pace to achieve that.

5.) 25 Feb 2018 22:42:28
Pep is overrated and Arsenal are a shadow of themselves. This is city's year in the premier league but I really don't see them getting to the cl final which with the money on show, should be almost expected. I think as soon as a few teams desperate for points go out and play them towards the end of the season we'll see the cracks showing. I think if we'd played karius sooner the gap would be a lot closer. Ifs and buts I suppose.

6.) 25 Feb 2018 23:50:08
I think we would be in for a shout in the next few season, just I fear city are just getting better and better. Jesus, sterling, silva (the other one) sane, stones, ederson, mendy and others, are all young and improving, de bruyne has years left and if he keeps getting better, and the defence are pretty set now for a few years too. They will recruit too and of late it's been excellent.

7.) 26 Feb 2018 06:07:46
You have a point Firmane but don't forget a team can only play 11 players at any one time. I think what is also apparent, and also important, is that how the team functions as a collective is the key. i think we are building an excellent, cohesive team that works for one another and functions well as a whole. The sum of cities parts are probably better, I mean they are oozing world class players, but as a team I think we are actually pretty close. Our issues this season, though not as prominent, have been related to consistency and motivation against smaller sides - City have been ruthless in that respect whilst we have much room for improvement. If we can improve on that, add a couple of top quality signings in summer, then anything could happen next season. As it stands Champions League qualification is vital - if we miss out we face the prospect of missing out on top targets, that has to be the focus this season.

8.) 26 Feb 2018 17:12:48
it will be really interesting to see whether Pep is the silver bullet that brings consistency to City. They usually go up and down year to year like Chelsea do. It's like their players put all the effort in for a season then get bored of the manager and take a season off! I think he will, but equally interested to see how well Pep can maintain the run with these lads.

With Couts the little magician about to leave the club, I do wish him all the best, he has been a good servant to Liverpool Football club and has scored some amazing goals. I don't think he is worth as much as we are getting as a player, but for sure he is worth that much to Liverpool. I wished he would stay until the summer and try win some silverware before he departs, but all the best to him. He was denied in the summer but still served the club so well, never bitched or moaned once. So in my eyes he has left the club well. it is not bad bit of business from the club really, to buy a player for 8.5 million and sell for 145million isn't too bad. I don't feel the sense of loss i felt when we lost Suarez though, we are finally in a position where we can lose our star man and still be in a strong place, just I hope we can invest well with the money. YNWA Coutinho.

I don't think we ever should return to players that forced their ways out of the club, Coutinho's overall game went seriously downhill especially in the last 6 months he was at the club, as said he threw his toys out of the pram to try and force his way out of the club and get his move to Barca, In my opinion, if any player waits until the end of the season and tries to leave on good terms then fair enough, but the things he did can't be forgotten. But for me the biggest reason why we shouldn't bring him back is because our overall game has improved so much since his departure. We were too reliant on him and our movement of the ball to play the counter attack slowed down when he was in the team. It would be a major step back to bring him back. He made his bed, he needs to sleep in it now. Our club has moved on and we are having an amazing season, we need to look forward not back.

Also a big thank you to all the eds, I know you get allot of stick sometimes, but all of us are grateful for all the hard work you do to keep us in the loop.

I wouldn't take coutinho back. He forced his way out and acted terribly to get his move to Barcelona. Our play immediately improved once he left, he didn't do the press as well as the current players we have. Also i feel because he was able to produce that bit of magic the other players seemed to rely on him to pull something out of the bag and try pick out coutinho when there was better option available. As for coutinho, i thank him for his service, but he forced his way out, and ultimeately, the club has moved on, we are in a much better position now compared to 12 months ago.

Great servant for the club, for me before his bad injury a few seasons ago against chelsea he was one of our best players in my opinion and felt he would succeed gerrard as captain some day, alas it didn't happen. But a great player for us over 10 years, he had a tough start to life at anfield but changed his game and became a real talented player. If im not mistaken he is the last surviving player from rafa's reign. Hope he does what is best for him. Would love to see him stay until the end of the season but if he does go ill be happy for him. YNWA Lucas Leiva.

Agree with Hart, he is a rubbish keeper, even flicked on the Man city game tonight briefly and there he was flapping at crosses. Credit to Migs, at least he is a decent shotstopper, but if Hart was with our defence, he would probably be worse then Migs in my opinion, definitely just as bad, he will struggle when he moves on to a team who do not have as good of a defence as City does.

As for Sakho, has it really gotten that bad with him? I have not really been following his story since he was sent home from America. Is Klopp looking to get rid because of his attitude? I thought he was still injured, that's why he was still not in the team.

100% agree with mk. Can only play one game at a time. Ill only celebrate IF and when we lift the pl trophy but not before. Allot of football left to be played we literally are only half way there and any team can beat anyone on their day. One game at a time and enjoy the ride. YNWA.

It really bugs me when our fans or players talk about winning the title or like lovren saying he wants an invincible season. Yes of course we all want that, but by saying it i think adds unncessary pressure and how many times has it come back to bite us when we were so close before. I for one am not thinking about the title, my only concern is wolves on friday. VVD said only yesterday that liverpool are not getting carried away and not becoming complacent so why dejan are you saying this? To me it doesn't make sense.

Paul Merson also said Liverpool have no chance to win the league because the games against Cardiff are the games we lose and City win these games 4 or 5-0. I used to follow his predictions each week for the fun, and bet on them in the bookies, i never won all season haha. I wouldn't listen too much to what Paul Merson says.

If we can't get a goalkeeper the quality of an Oblak, which i cannot see happening, or Allison which the eds have said isn't happening then id be happy to stick with Karius and bring in Butland and have them fight for the no.1 jersey. I must say that i really liked Karius and let's be fair, he hasn't really put a foot wrong (CL final aside, which was more down to a concussion than his gk ability, personally i also feel the medical staff and refs should shoulder the blame for not spotting he had indeed a concussion) since been given the goalkeeping position permanently, our defence improved dramatically, having VVD in front really helped with that, but i think we had the 2nd best defence in the league stats wise from January if i remember correctly.

I would love to see him prove all the doubters and some of our "fans" wrong, i use the quotation marks in response to the fans who have sent him death threats which is not the liverpool way, we used to get behind our players even if they did wrong. I always felt that Karius has the ability to be world class but he needs support.

Id like to sign Butland if we don't get a top class keeper, i feel he would add quality and knowledge of the Premier League and i hope he has a good WC even as an irishman who may not want England to win the tournament i hope he can have a good tournament and join us then.

But end of the day, we need to trust in Klopp, he has a good track record for the signings he has made. I would say 90% of the signings he has made have been successful. Just because we don't sign a player that has a rating of 99 on Fifa doesn't mean he won't be a good signing.
