Have a question for ed002. I was very impressed by Koulibaly of Napoli especially his speed and recovery, also very good in the air and I think, as VVD for now is dead we should atleast try. Has there been any aproach for the player apart from chelsea? napoli are hard to negotiate but would like him at our club. thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea had an offer rejected last year and have not lost sight of the player.}

1.) 21 Jun 2017 18:47:29
This guy is a real beast.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 19:46:37
To be fair Ed002, it'd be hard to lose sight of him at 6'7" I reckon I can see him from here if I squint a bit.

3.) 21 Jun 2017 20:47:05
If you squint a lot, Klaven looks great.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 11:40:22
Thought rudiger looked very comfortable on the ball the other day when I watched him and seemed to have decent pace. Whilst I like VVD I have a feeling the FA are likely to look very closely at the deal if we try for that to happen. Shame, but we know klopp wants a CB and will pay big so we need alternatives.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 12:18:42
Youd have to squint so hard that your eyes would nearly be in again.



04 Jul 2016 15:20:25
As it stands Zielinski is Napoli bound. We will try to push for Dahoud now. if not we will stick with wee Joe Pirlo.




21 Jun 2016 13:43:58
hey eds and reds. I was wondering is there any truth in firmino to city rumours?


1.) 21 Jun 2016 15:57:52
of course there's not.

2.) 21 Jun 2016 17:09:08
Not sure he would enjoy the standard of play at Bristol City, nor could they afford him. He would enjoy learning the rhyming slang though.



03 May 2016 08:42:15
Hey ed02. i know this might be a stupid question but croatian media are pumping the story of kovacic joining liverpool as goetze might be out of reach and with crazy salary. does it have any legs as i'm a big admirer of mateo i think he needs the right coach to explode someone to trust in him and give him a proper role. thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 03 May 2016 10:52:11
Cheers ed, it might not be the news that fans neccessarily want to hear, but the truth is always better to know. Much appreciated.

2.) 03 May 2016 11:10:33
I honestly can't see why we would want to buy him when we have bought a similar player in Grujic? Surely we should be scouting and going after a proper defensive minded midfielder who can actually tackle?

3.) 03 May 2016 12:13:52
We have Henderson, Can and Milner who can play b2b. Stewart, Chirivella and Lucas to play cdm. Grujic, Allen, Coutinho and Lallana who can play cam.

And that's just assuming Rossiter and Brannagan leave the club which is no guarantee.

I really don't think we need to worry about signing any midfielders when we need a keeper, a right back, a left back, a centre back and a wide forward.

4.) 03 May 2016 13:05:31
MK the weekend showed the need for a top class centre midfielder who can tackle and boss it.

5.) 03 May 2016 13:26:47
Mr Dennis, the weekend showed that when we have both of our first choice midfielders out injured and we choose to rest the other 3 fit ones (Lucas, Milner and Allen) that Chirivella, Brannagan and Stewart don't have enough experience. You can't seriously use Sunday to justify needing a midfielder when we played our 6th, 7th and 8th choice centre midfielders, can you? Not to mention we already have Allan out on loan, Rossiter injured and Grujic joining in the summer. That's 11 centre midfielders. How many do you want? Another 5 so we have 8 for each position? You know, just incase there's a chronic stomach bug that spreads through the team and 14 players miss the game with the runs?

6.) 03 May 2016 13:34:12
Yeah his name is Emre Can.

7.) 03 May 2016 13:35:48
Oh and just so you know, Stewart made 5 successful tackles, 2 interceptions and 4 clearances. More than any other player on the pitch. It's not his fault he had a child next to him in Pedro who looked like a very skinny rabbit in the headlights of an Artic Truck.

I think you're being very knee jerk about this. Klopp rates Stewart very highly and Sunday will have only reassured Klopp that Stewart is up to first team football. He looked more comfortable than any other outfield player in our team and the result was in no way a reflection of his performance. It was hard for him to control the game because he was surrounded by dross performances.

Unless Hendo, Lucas or Can leave then it'd be foolish to sign another midfielder. Grujic is just arriving and Stewart has signed a new contract and is going nowhere.

8.) 03 May 2016 13:07:20
Klopp doesn't rate any of the CDM you mentioned hence he plays Can / Henderson in that role, what are you even talking Adam. Mateo is a touch of class and you will only realize if he pulls that red shirt. His first class touch on the ball makes hims just elegant.
Grujic is just 19.

9.) 03 May 2016 15:16:01
Grujic is 19 yes. But Hendo is 26. Lucas is 29. Can is 22. And Stewart is 22. Besides, what does being 19 have to do with it? Isn't Delle Alli the same age? Would you pass on signing him for £5m?

He plays Henderson and Can in deeper roles Harry because Lucas is seen as experienced cover and Stewart is just finding his feet in the Premier League.

We don't need any midfielders unless we sell someone. I can tell I'm not going to get through to you though because you've spent the last 3 years claiming Henderson isn't good enough and needs replacing; which is crap by the way.

10.) 03 May 2016 18:22:36
Mk it may have escaped your notice but teams have been able run through our midfield at will over the last few years and that was painfully obvious on Sunday, we've a complete lack of bite in midfield and we need a Xhaka, Kante or a Lars Bender type to give us that steel. But we certainly don't need kovacic who for all his lovely flicks and occasional Hollywood ball offers nothing. I think Allen and Lucas will go this summer so a proper nails hard defensive midfielder will be needed. Otherwise we'll struggle again.

11.) 03 May 2016 22:18:53
To be fair, kovacic is quality and I'm all for signing quality over quantity. If he's an improvement on our starting 11. Sign him.

12.) 03 May 2016 22:28:55
If Lucas goes I agree with you, we need another midfielder. Odds are it would be Zielinski though who isn't exactly a destroyer. Klopp rates Can though so he is the closest we will see to a destroyer I reckon.

13.) 03 May 2016 17:04:49
Adam, I agree with your last line as we would need to move 1 or 2 midfielders to make room for someone and we should be moving Allen and Lucas to bring in one.

Regarding Henderson. I still say he isn't a Holding midfielder by any means.

Alli has played in England while Grujich is yet to touch his feet in England.

14.) 04 May 2016 11:29:22
We need to stop teams running through us at will, we're a soft touch in midfield and that has been exposed far too often.

Kovacic isn't a tough player by any stretch of the imagination and neither is Zeilinski and we actually could do with midfielders that are physically strong and able to tackle, both of them are lightweights who would get blown aside by a decent gust of wind.

Honestly don't get why people cream their pants over Kovacic, hasn't set the world alight at Madrid and was hardly the greatest player at inter, text book youtube highlights player.



11 Mar 2016 20:39:03
hey ed02. here is another random name i'm impressed with and followed him. Youri Tielemans. do you know if liverpool atleast scouted him and is there an interest in him from other clubs? thank you ed :)


{Ed002's Note - Tielemans has attracted long-term interest from Chelsea with Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Juventus, Napoli, Barcelona and Marseille all showing an interest in the past 9 months. Plenty of other sides will have had him scouted. Chelsea have actively been speaking with his club since January 2014 but would even now need to send him on loan for, I imagine, at least a year or more. Atletico spoke with Anderlecht this summer and the player liked the idea of a move to Madrid but nothing could be resolved for a move at the time. The problem with a move to England is that he is certainly not ready to step right in to the first team at many of the more senior clubs. If he accepts that and a loan, then a move is possible. Whilst Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea may well all look to offers in January, a move before next summer is unlikely which may be an issue for Atletico. Juventus are keeping a slightly low profile but if others bid then they will as well. I also understand that Piero Ausilio attended the Spurs vs Anderlecht game to watch two players - Tielemans being one.}

1.) 11 Mar 2016 20:52:25
thank you ed very much, i think he is one of best young midfielders and future star, great vision and resistant on pressing with good range of passing real modern midfielder.

{Ed002's Note - But not moving to Liverpool.}

2.) 11 Mar 2016 20:54:26
Klopp loves him but with emergence of can and hendo in the middle and matip, grujic, Lucas and Allen. Stewart and the rest it would be another silly move to be fair as he is a lad who needs plenty of games to develop and we couldn't offer that.

3.) 14 Mar 2016 07:49:25
Last I checked it was said he is not ready yet for EPL, could be wrong.

Hello scousers. First of all i want to apologize to our captain as i doubted he will be to his best and he is slowly getting there. so im optimistic about our season. we improved in this transfer window and we will push. think we will do really well in CL especially in knock out phase if we get there.
Hope we learned something from last season and we stay in a race longer.
CITY will be massive game and we will see where we are against one of the best!




30 Aug 2017 21:31:57
cheers to macca again, he was mentioning that Ox could well happen in all his reports. so he was right about keita and ox let's get VVD on thaat list too!


1.) 30 Aug 2017 22:10:22
Did macca ever mention anything about lemar?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 01:23:07
Mate I don't think even Klopp knew he was going for Lemar until a few days ago.



28 Aug 2017 15:42:50
keita is a red. number 8 shirt joing july 1st next season. fee is more than release close as clause is not relevant to us. klopp wanted him so badly and he got him. red bull accepted this as bayern would probably buy him next season for a fee in release clause they got more and got to keep him in debut champions league season and find a replacment. nice piece of buissnes.




27 Aug 2017 18:34:11
If Cou leaves we need to add quality. that is exactly what we were missing last years . we can't allow injuries to stumble us. someone like draxler, brandt or keita would be perfect. If howerer he stays we need a cb only and get a contract extension for big EMRE!


1.) 27 Aug 2017 18:44:48
Klopps interview gave no hints that coutinho is staying so not sure why the pundits talk like he's staying. I think he will leave.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 18:46:24
I've critisized Moreno a lot but thought he was good today. Against lesser opposition I'm sure he will leave teammates exposed but he was disciplined today and even passed well.



27 Aug 2017 15:27:57
Ox starting for them. now he will score against us as lot of guys here called him "rubish", "headless chicken" "averege at best " lol. hope for a good result! come on Reds!


1.) 27 Aug 2017 15:57:01
Thanks for the positive start too the game hahaha I know where u comin from though, we love creatin a storyline.

As a Croatian ed001 Rakitic was never a box to box player. schalke and sevila he was always a playmaker. they chanched his role at Barcelona and sacrificed him to get a balance to the team. he has amazing long pass and knows how to hold a ball. has an eye for goal and good shot with both legs and always scores in important matches. unfourtantly he will most likely not wanna go to England as his wife is spanish and they are happy in Spain. if English premier leaugue clubs would stop only look for pace and power and actually try to sign some maestros of midfield play maybe clubs would get into quaterfinals of CL. Look at our midfield against Hoffenhaim we couldn't control and lost the ball in a wrong places so our defence looks worse than it is. Rakitic wouldn't be my first choice but he is damn good player.


{Ed001's Note - that probably explains why he looks shot then, as his legs seem to have gone. If his role has been changed, though he did not really play as a playmaker for Sevilla either when I watched them, he might simply not have the stamina for box to box work.}

Coudnt agree more Ed. Veratti is top top class. also often injured but when on pitch he is pure class. up there with modric in terms of dictating the pace of the game.

yea half their team walking in our side, stupid predictions they would finish above us, gylfi world class player, keane world class, rooney world class, picford next buffon bla bla. we have problems but theirs are far worse. no creativity and moving of the ball. i think we will solve ours soon but they will have to dig in and fight. fans should be refunded for their trip to italy.

well ed it is easy to be realistic about other team players. for example you are not realistic when you think Gylfi and Rooney are world class and can get into top team when reality is different. who would buy siggurdosn from top 4 clubs. United? Spurs? ah he already failed there. Chelsea? maybe as Conte likes hardworking midfielder but opted for other options. City? pep would never buy that sort of player. neither champions league club would buy him, maybe for 20mill max. and you said Can is bad player once . 22 years old german international midfielder wanted by Juventus and likely to be first eleven player. Keane for you would walk into Liverpool team. In Keane i see slow old fashion defender, definitely good player but can't play high line and you will see that over the season. karius is lemon and picford is future England number one? goal he conceded against Hajduk was his mistake and he will have problems with well placed higher shots as he is not tall. everyone sees thinghs differently. you think calwin and lookman are great talents, you will see what talent is when Vlasic plays for your club.


{Ed025's Note - and there lies the problem with liverpool supporters mandzo!, a lot of you are very disparaging about other teams players but think your own are incredible and can do no wrong, other teams supporters see you as delusional and quite frankly its hard to disagree mate, a lot of it is just banter and i get that as im the reigning world champion, but humility as a supporter is a fine trait..

Well i guess everyone is subjective when it comes to their team. for me only baines and i like the look of gueye but wouldn't play him instead of hendo or can. all others good pl players nothing more if you want to play in CL you need more. not convinced about pickford yet, gylfi is a good player but only everton would buy him at that price and he would not be a starter at liverpool. klassen is interesting player but there is concern how he would fit into english game. Everton doesn't have a rb as coleman is injured, rooney is still good pl player but if you want to fight for top you need someone to press and preform week and week out. no pace up front. so to conclude there are indeed some good players at everton but they are work in proggres and i think will score goals very hard.


{Ed025's Note - some fair points there mandzo..

Lemar is very good player. Let's not fool ourself into thinking he is on cou level but close. his numbers are similar to cou but in a weaker league. he is young, fast, with a good eye for pass and he can carry the ball. Dead balls also his strenght. He is lw and cam and he likes to interchange and play in fluid system. Rated by all coaches that had him, forcing his way into France national team and for some best monaco player last season wenger first target (dont know why they didn't pay asking price ) . he will be just fine!
