Has Fekir failed his medical eds?


{Ed001's Note - no, he can't fail something he hasn't had.}

1.) 08 Jun 2018 09:44:22
What's happening?

1. Are we playing games?
2. Is Lyon playing games?
3. Are both playing games?

2.) 08 Jun 2018 09:50:52
Thanks for the very quick reply ed001, much appreciated. Trying to keep calm amid lots of conflicting reports! Now seeing he'll be announced before stock market closes!

3.) 08 Jun 2018 09:55:44
My head hurts 😩.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 09:56:49
Can everyone please just calm down and stay off twatter for one day? I know it's a lot to ask, but these things take some time to get done. Just take a chill pill and enjoy your Friday, all will be revealed in good time.

5.) 08 Jun 2018 09:59:30
It's a game of two halves.

6.) 08 Jun 2018 10:11:45
Guys, there’s only two sources of info we should be really listening to, the Ed’s on here and the official website.

The media circus just copy each other.

If it’s meant to be it’ll happen, if not we move on.

7.) 08 Jun 2018 10:13:07
I think it's because Lyon are public listed. This transfers is affecting their share price even though it's not complete. Lyon are just calming things down until a formal announcement can be made.

8.) 08 Jun 2018 10:21:17
Liverpool have not said anything on this matter so no worries. Let’s relax and wait for Liverpool.

9.) 08 Jun 2018 10:34:37
When the club make the announcement it’ll be done. Until then, keep an eye on what ed2 says or better yet, try to figure out what wonder dog sparky is hinting at.

10.) 08 Jun 2018 11:18:53
Eds can you please provide an update on the fekir situation?
From Lyon's tweet it is clear that we haven't reached an agreement but do you know what the current situation is?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot comment on the timing of transfers.}

11.) 08 Jun 2018 11:59:45
Ed001 can i push my luck and ask do you know if a medical for fekir is planned?

{Ed001's Note - when a fee is agreed.}

12.) 08 Jun 2018 12:07:00
Take a deep breath every body. In through the nose out through the mouth. And repeat.

13.) 08 Jun 2018 12:16:20
Got a feeling this is Lyon saying we will not be pushed over regards terms, it could be a payment term snag or anything holding the deal, stop panicking we have loads of time.

14.) 08 Jun 2018 12:16:27
Loic Remy II.

15.) 08 Jun 2018 12:17:41
Hi eds, James Pearce already said Fekir taking medical. So what do u meant by Fekir has not taken medical?

16.) 08 Jun 2018 12:29:38
Medical done and announcement due upon close of French Stock Market.

17.) 08 Jun 2018 12:32:02
Genuine update for all those asking the eds for updates. Not a rumour but a guarantee. The transfer so any players will be officially completed on the .

Day it's confirmed by the club's involved. So sit back and chill and stop asking the eds questions they have never answered.

18.) 08 Jun 2018 12:33:31
Why doesn’t everyone stop nagging for information that just isn’t there at present.

19.) 08 Jun 2018 12:57:17
Lyon are a listed company and are not allowed to anounce the transfer until 4 pm uk time medical is done and deal will be anounced dead on 4.01 i guarantee it.

20.) 08 Jun 2018 13:04:24
James Pearce isn’t in the know anymore. He would be best served getting a job in Glasgow.

21.) 08 Jun 2018 12:19:12
Ed002, I understand the you can't answer about the timing and I'm not asking you about it. What I meant to ask was, has there been any progress with regards to the transfer since the last time, you told that we were in contact with Lyon.
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I have said I expect it to go ahead. I have no interest in asking if the nurse has asked him to cough just yet. It seems ridiculous that you all crave these minute by minute updates.}

22.) 08 Jun 2018 14:17:56
Here, here Ed!

It really must be so infuriating for you with the non stop questions about is it, isn't it.

23.) 08 Jun 2018 14:30:26
Apparently there'll be no announcement of Fekir signing til after 5pm GMT . when the French Stock Market closes.
LFC sought a second opinion on a knee issue but everything ok and he passed his medical.

24.) 08 Jun 2018 14:53:16
Sorry ed002. Didn’t intend to annoy you.
Thank you.

25.) 08 Jun 2018 15:32:54
We are like kid's on Christmas morning Ed both anxious and excited, don't be to hard on us.

26.) 08 Jun 2018 15:35:13
I am surprised we don't demand the eds pick up cameras and follow the Liverpool medical staff this way we would be able to watch the medicals and see exactly when the nurse is asking Fekir to cough!

Thank you Eds for your insights, reports and most importantly for not leaving!

27.) 08 Jun 2018 15:39:05
Can all you lot relax? Lmao it'll be done soon, in the meantime just have a coffee or something.

28.) 08 Jun 2018 15:46:53
My info, which is generally good, was that he failed the first medical because of issues he had with a knee injury in 2016, but he was having another one this afternoon.

29.) 08 Jun 2018 15:47:35
Valium anyone😁.

30.) 08 Jun 2018 15:54:45
What a awful thread! If I was and Ed I would quit right now.

31.) 08 Jun 2018 15:56:27
I can confirm that the nurse has now asked him to cough, and he has done so.

32.) 08 Jun 2018 15:57:15

He has a BOIL!

This could all end messily.

33.) 08 Jun 2018 16:21:33
I genuinely feel sorry for you Eds today! wow.

34.) 08 Jun 2018 16:44:46
The only good thing for the eds. we are doing our business early in the window. So in 2 weeks time; after alison signs. they can have a break for the rest of the window lol.

35.) 08 Jun 2018 16:44:11
Liver_La, sorry to be pedantic, but its actually 5pm BST. GMT is an hour behind, so it will be 4pm GMT.

Just saying, like.

Now, I've got some trains to spot :)

36.) 08 Jun 2018 17:00:20
Hi eds, can you please clarify if a fee has to be agreed for a medical to take place? Ed1 mentioned a medical for fekir will be done when a fee is agreed however I thought if clubs were in negotiations and not far off reaching an agreement, the selling club could allow a medical if they wanted. And similarly with allowing a buying club to discuss terms with the player. I imagine this would typically happen at transfer deadline day too. This may have nothing to fo with fekirs delayed announcement but is a possibility in my head (e. g. basic fee agreed but haggling over 1 mill add on, or agent fee responsibility etc) . Thanks for your help and the information you provide, i thought i knew a lot about how transfers worked but have learned a lot from this site.

{Ed001's Note - it is possible but very few clubs allow one before a fee is agreed.}

37.) 08 Jun 2018 18:32:37
Listen to the the Eds!



04 Jul 2017 15:29:26
Any truth we're now looking at Nice left back Henrique Dalbert?

Never seen him, any good anyone?


{Ed002's Note - No. Nice have offers from two sides that were enough to allow the clubs to talk with the player. So far one club has done so the other not. Both will be pondering whether to pay more. None of this involves Liverpool.}



03 Jul 2017 10:59:50
Eds, if Mendy were to reduce his ridiculous wage demands, would we look again or have we moved on?


{Ed002's Note - No, he will be moving but not to LFC.}

1.) 03 Jul 2017 11:24:55
Ed002, do you know where he will be moving to? or if not, who are the
interested clubs? I know its not technically Liverpool related but your reply is on this page, Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City are trying hardest of the interested sides. Monaco accept he will move on.}

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:58:08
Thanks Ed002.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 12:01:27
Thanks Ed002.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 20:14:48
Hi eds i see that lucas digne is up for sale why aren't liverpool going to knock down barcelonas door. lfc are so slow at transfers . can you see Can going .

{Ed025's Note - the price i imagine deano, and can is expected to stay mate..

5.) 03 Jul 2017 21:57:16
Thanks ed.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..



01 Jun 2017 10:55:07
According to Sky News Arabia, we have agreed a fee of £43m for Salah.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 11:44:06
I for one certainly hope not.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 11:46:25
What the absolute f

I thought he was a more reasonable option.

Would of had lamar or costa for that price.

Yes im bashing. Just that's a heavy outlay for a player in the prem 2 seaso s ago who couldn't settle.

Yes different circumstance and if he does want back in then he must be over whatever problem h3 had back then but heafty outlay for some question marks.

Talent wise. Need wise. Option wise. Brilliat signing.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 12:02:06
Need wise - don't we have a right winger who was pretty good last season?

4.) 01 Jun 2017 12:02:48
He doesn't work hard enough and I am hoping this is fake news.

And when you say 'need wise' I'm assuming you mean for our left-wing? But he does not play on the left-wing.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 12:12:27

6.) 01 Jun 2017 12:18:42
Surely not! Chelsea paid £12-16m for him 3 years ago! Which seemed fair! Seems a little excessive to think his stock has risen another £30m since then

Klopp is known for being a very frugal manager in the transfer windows. This seems out of character.

7.) 01 Jun 2017 12:31:43
Back to wasting money again then.

8.) 01 Jun 2017 12:34:54
wait what! People bitching about players who we may or may not have signed! No wonder Ed2 is sick of people on here.

9.) 01 Jun 2017 12:49:07
He is left footed at least unlike Brandt.

10.) 01 Jun 2017 13:14:15
He's quality and we need more quality, but that seems mega steep.

11.) 01 Jun 2017 13:14:36
Roma want £43m, we offered £29.5m by all accounts. Ed002 said that there were reasons he didn't settle well at Chelsea, although I can't help thinking that Mourinho either likes you or he doesn't and heaven help you if he doesn't.

He certainly has looked like the winger that he was at Basel this season and it can't be argued that he doesn't have end product to match his pace and skill, because he clearly does as the amount of goals and assists would prove that.

Hopefully he wants to prove both Mourinho and Chelsea wrong by succeeding on his second go at the premier league and where better to rub Mourinho's nose in it than at Anfield?

Only concern is what happens when the AFCON comes around as missing two pacy important wingers is a big deal, although it is some time off.

12.) 01 Jun 2017 13:29:32
Why does everyone moan about the amount of money a player costs? Its not your pocket its coming from, the fact is we are a premier league club and that increases the price of a player instantly so we always have to pay over the odds nowadays. At best a player stays put because they don't want to sell him or at worst you lose out to another premier league side for being too tight with the purse strings.

{Ed025's Note - im with you jcw..

13.) 01 Jun 2017 13:41:55
I think that would be a reasonable price for the player. Similar to what we paid for Mane last year.

14.) 01 Jun 2017 14:47:47
Quite like the idea of Mane and Salah running at defenders. Enough to give any full back nightmares.



05 Jun 2016 21:45:39
Would I be correct to assume the Mustafi rumours coming from Spain are untrue?


{Ed002's Note - I obviously know nothing of any rumours but I can assure you that Liverpool have not made any approach regarding Mustafi at this time.}

1.) 05 Jun 2016 22:16:53
We have not made an approach at this time? Meaning we might possibly go in for him at some point in the near future? :D I'm only joking ED, I won't ask for more information regarding Shkodran Mustafi. I am a huge fan of Mustafi but will wait and see what happens, like everyone else.

I would just like to thank you for being patient with us - as I know we can be quite unruly when something Liverpool related is mentioned in the media - and would like to thank you for answering many of our questions, especially when they have been asked a hundred times before.

You are an invaluable source of information on this site and I always look forward to hearing your honest opinions. You tell us things straight - often saying things we don't want to hear - but you are always honest and I appreciate that. You and all the other EDs make this site my most searched for website on the internet, and I am sure I am one of many.


2.) 05 Jun 2016 23:21:18
Tricky one, ex-bluenose starting for a team in the champions league. I don't think he's a legitimate target.
Assuming Sakho is not going to get banned, we have plenty of centre backs.

It's not a priority position IMO.

12 Jun 2018 22:23:34
Ed002, are the Sporting Lisbon players who are attempting to terminate their contracts likely to have their way? Is there a legal basis to their actions?

With that in mind, would LFC consider Gelson Martins an option as a free agent?

I don't know how true the Shaqiri interest is, but IMO Martins would be a better option.


{Ed002's Note - They will move en masse to Liverpool or West Ham.}



01 Jun 2018 22:44:06
Ed002, assuming no glifnards prevent it and you do a musical sharkopod, may I be the first to suggest you include 'Slip Inside This House' by the 13th Floor Elevators. A band you like?


{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

1.) 02 Jun 2018 01:54:11
Well, if you're taking requests I've got to ask for Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit.

{Ed002's Note - I have always preferred the long original version by the Great Society - but a good request.}

2.) 02 Jun 2018 08:43:03
Can I have stalkers say off please.

{Ed002's Note - No.}



01 Sep 2017 08:29:36
A plea for perspective - I think the most important thing to come from the window is a significant shift in our status, the days of losing the likes of Willian and Sanchez could be over.

Van Dijk chose us over Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal and would already be playing for us if Blackpoolgate hadn't happened. A lesson hopefully learned. Lemar rejected Arsenal (and hence 'London') because he wanted to play for LFC. Keita will join us next year despite strong interest from others and was willing to commit now than wait what happens when the release fee could be triggered. AOC rejected huge offers from Chelsea and Arsenal to come here - let's support him with the passion he's already shown us. Solanke chose joining us over staying at Chelsea - this coup will only see its true value in a few years but I am excited at the player he could turn out to be. That speaks volumes.

So what about Phil wanting to leave, let's be pragmatic about that. As for Can, we hope he signs, if not we move on. If he's nt signing very soon then I can't see when, I'd imagine Juve or maybe Bayern may come sniffing in January on a pre-contract. But the future is great - TAA, Gomez, Kent, Woodburn, Ward will be hovering around the first team and are already getting some opportunities. Not sure how often Grujic will play but it's a long season. Can and Phil will be replaced if necessary and apart from a CB all looks very promising. Full backs sorted, plenty of midfield choices and if Sturridge can stay fit and Ings can slowly be reintegrated we'll have no problems covering for Firmino. Our season won't break down if Mane or Salah get injured but it would obviously have an effect but there is much to be optimistic about.



1.) 01 Sep 2017 08:49:38
Coutinho needs to do some serious apologising to all and sundry for his actions to even be considered back in the fold.

I do think the club need to work hard to get Can to sign as it is clear that he is developing into a top class footballer and we need to show him that he will be rewarded as such and he can realise his ambitions here.

Do any of the Eds know what specific sticking points there are over his contract (or is it a RTFP case? ) .

{Ed001's Note - he wanted more guarantees over his situation, which he has not been given, nor will he get. There were no issues other than he felt he was being phased out by the club.}

2.) 01 Sep 2017 08:50:29
My 2 issues about the VVD situation are, 1 everyone assumes Southampton would ever sell him and 2 would he have been more interested in LFC than others without the tapping up. I get the impression it has become a very complicated mess and I do understand the possibility the club wasn't going to bid unless Soton accepted a bid from someone else first. Ultimately the club has to stop the illegal or even dubious approaches and play straight down the line from now.

I do agree with everything else you say, this club has a manager people want to play for, has the money and reputation again that is attracting good names and most of all has some very good players currently in the squad, including Gomez and TAA in defence. Future still bright.

3.) 01 Sep 2017 09:16:34
Do you think this is something that can be resolved Ed001? There should be some middle ground? Given the fact that there is potentially 60 games a season (plus internationals), you would hardly want to play all of them and then go to a world cup would you?

{Ed001's Note - I think he has decided it is better to go being perfectly honest.}

4.) 01 Sep 2017 09:21:48
Future is great? Selling a 23 year old proper Center midfielder? I would send Hendo back to Sunderland and assure Emre Can for his position and games! Can is the future you should be talking about mate!

5.) 01 Sep 2017 09:25:04
I can understand why he might have thought that with the Keita bids but do you think it's the truth Ed? I thought Klopp really rated him so is he really viewing him as more of a backup player in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - I think it is more Klopp sees him playing from deeper and he doesn't feel that is where he wants to be. For his own development as a player and his international future.}

6.) 01 Sep 2017 09:52:30
Cheers Ed

And thanks for all the work this window.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome SGR, though I am hoping I am wrong on this one and he decides to stay.}



30 Aug 2017 21:26:21
Messenger duty only.

Conflicting reports re Lemar. One usually reliable source says £98m euro fee agreed. Another says negotiations will continue tomorrow but Monaco allowing Lemar to have medical tonight. Not heard of the latter happening before, is it common practice when deals go to the wire?


{Ed002's Note - it is not common practice to get players out of bed in the middle of the night for a medical.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 23:01:15
Maybe we could sneak into his room and do it whilst he's asleep?

2.) 30 Aug 2017 23:05:48
Eddie how would a medical work then one a match day?

{Ed002's Note - It ends with a cough.}

3.) 31 Aug 2017 00:29:52
Impressive Ed02 - after all the stuff you guys have been put through that one actually made me laugh out loud. How you keep your patience is way, way beyond me - but thanks to you (and the other Eds for doing so) Special shout out for Ed025 too - the lad tries to get some banter going which is brilliant - shame that as an Evertonian the lad just isn't the sharpest tool in the box :-)



30 Aug 2017 12:21:26
Reds, I think we need to not focus on whether AOC will join or not, or whether he's good enough or not but we need to remember where Arsenal bought him from. Then all becomes clear.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 12:32:10
Nailed it!

2.) 30 Aug 2017 12:57:05
Listen. Yes it's been good 4ehecting others for a potential move to us but we could all do that, I want to move to Liverpool. Should they sign me?

We should only buy better players than we have. Which up yo now we have been doing. Is ox that?

Oh he's a utility player. What is that exactly. A back of all trades and master of none. A 70 mil man. If we need a 70 min man then we have grujic, sturridge, solanke, Woodburn, lallana, and potentially origin after Thursday.

We're does the ox fit into that.

We should be looking yo keep coutinho or sign someone who can potentially emulate what we he for us. Not someone who has to play rwb because he's not as good as welbeck, walcott or iwobi.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 12:57:46
So by that reckoning Walcott will follow soon!
:- (.

{Ed001's Note - he was a Liverpool fan as a boy as well.}

4.) 30 Aug 2017 13:14:26
{Ed001's Note - he was a Liverpool fan as a boy as well. }

So was I.
And I've lived in Southampton for a year.
I'm still available for transfer at a cut price £25m.

{Ed001's Note - there we go then, replacement for Couts sorted.}

5.) 30 Aug 2017 13:38:57
It should quote simple be Lemar or coutinho now.

Vvd obviously.

That's it. There are choices.

The ox. Really. Year after year we kicked off on Brendan for signings like that. A utility man. Like Milner? In fact we should sign him. oh wait.

Ed0025, only just noticed your reply. I appreciate your apology and of course I accept it. Understand completely.

On a lighter note, I might need to change my humorous (but slightly facetious) comment of the Blues finishing 7th. I can see them above Arsenal and Spurs for sure and personally hoping they finish above the rubbish so 3rd and 4th wouldn't be too bad for Merseyside! Love the banter between Blues and Reds, know some great Blues lads and hope they have a good (but not above Liverpool good) season. Cheers mate.


{Ed025's Note - nice one kirkby, yeah it would be nice if we could give the mancs and chelsea a run for their money mate, liverpool are looking strong especially in attack but we need a forward badly if we are to be up there..but heres hoping..

Jay, before criticisng people you should check your facts; Ings is completely right. Beating Palace was not the point, improving goal difference WAS, hence still pressing at 3-0 rather than shutting up shop.

People talk about Gerrard because it was the last thing that happened to cost us in the title race. What about Toure at West Brom or the moment I felt we lost it was when Mannone made a real howler in the last minute, Sunderland were holding Man City 2-2 then he let's the ball through him to give City the vital 2 points. YOu could even go back to our game at the Etihad. We lost 2-1 but near the end Sterling missed a sitter - that would have won us the title if everything else had happened the same. But everyone moans about Gerrard because it happened later.

Just seen it! Love the way the ball just seems to stick to his feet and he glides past players as if they weren't there. Can't wait.
