ED002, regarding Coutinho and rumours surfacing again, do you believe there will be bids from the likes of Barcelona and PSG in January?


{Ed002's Note - The club are aware of what Coutinho told three international team mates last season and are also aware that PSG, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have continued to have Coutinho watched. I understand that PSG will make an offer in preparation for a January transfer and that the player has been made aware of this and has spoken to a couple of players about PSG. Right now I would expect him to stay until the summer and then consider his options - but PSG will look for a January deal. Liverpool will look to do what they can to hold on to him. I think offers in January from elsewhere are unlikely (as of this time).}

1.) 09 Oct 2016 10:31:14
Good update ed as always. I guess Liverpool will help there own cause if we wre still in and around top 4 come Jan and Couts thinks he can win things here?

{Ed002's Note - What matters for European football is the end of the season. A move to a club such as PSG would see him much higher profile and doing well domestically and with good opportunities in the Champions League - it will have its attractions. He has also spoken to a couple of players about PSG so the thought is already there as a seed.}

2.) 09 Oct 2016 10:43:21
Owe right ok. doesn't sound great then imo. I guess he will go and we will again be looking to replace our best player. doesn't need an answer ed its just my thoughts now. Were doing well and now this.

3.) 09 Oct 2016 10:44:32
There seems to be an air of inevitability that he will leave at some point I just hope we can have a great season and hold on to him for as long as possible. I'm not sure PSG would want to pay the crazy money we would want for him judging by their summer bid. Just out of curiosity Ed is the rumour about them being willing to use moura in any potential deal true?

{Ed002's Note - Moura has established himself as a starter and I don't see any plans for PSG to move him on now. And unless Liverpool were to move Mane, who plays in the same position, on I cannot see Liverpool being interested in any case.}

4.) 09 Oct 2016 11:10:42
I guess we just knuckle down and see what we can do in the league this year. If we have a blinder maybe he can be sold on klopps vision for the club.
If he does decide to leave in the summer it will be for north of £50 mil and we will have to move on without him. I do worry that it will leave players like firmino and mane looking to their next move if they carry on improving.

5.) 09 Oct 2016 11:29:24
I don't think it's worth worrying about just yet, if/ when we make top 4, he'll stay i reckon, still. very interesting to read your comments ed2, i had no idea about any of it. we can only hope he stays with us, fantastic player none of us want to lose.

6.) 09 Oct 2016 11:40:55
No player is bigger than the club. Coutinho is a good, yet not great player in my opinion and if someone makes a stupidly large enough bid then I'd not be terribly upset if he left - it might result in more game time for an out and out striker e. g. Origi or Sturridge.

7.) 09 Oct 2016 13:11:15
If coutinho does leave we should focus on bringing in Marco Reus. or maybe Draxler. I would much rather keep hold of the little magician though 😞.

8.) 09 Oct 2016 13:16:07
not a great player? he's one of our best players lol. tell me please, how Coutinho isn't a great player? he's world class mate, there's a reason why the top clubs in europe are after him.

9.) 09 Oct 2016 13:37:11
I guess part of the attraction of a January move would be he could feature in Europe for PSG if they are still in it?

10.) 09 Oct 2016 15:08:23
Why would any player go psg? Win the French league and get beat every year in the champions league.

Psg are Arsenal but they win some paltry league

11.) 09 Oct 2016 15:31:10
I don't think Couts is world class yet. But to say he is a not a great player is ridiculous. He is subject of interest from Barcelona, Bayern and PSG. That is the biggest team from Spain, Germany and France. He is Juventus and Man City away from having the top teams in Europes top 5 leagues hunting him!

12.) 09 Oct 2016 21:28:29
Thanks for the info Ed's 002.
Think he'll stay till end of the season then weigh up his options, champions league, EPL champions ect.

13.) 11 Oct 2016 02:08:59
Id be gutted to see him leave, I'm a big fan. we should be competing with these clubs at European level, not worrying about supplying them with our best players. if we Av a good finish this year, I think it'll take a Barcelona or Bayern serious offer to tempt him.



30 Dec 2014 12:43:50
Hi Ed002, Lucas on loan to Inter, any idea whether it is happening?


{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Lucas from both Napoli and Inter - and both would like to take him on loan in January. The player has made it clear that he does not wish to move to Naples but would like to move to Inter Milan and his representatives are actively discussing the move with Inter. There are however a couple of complications, one is that Inter have been in negotiations with another player (but a deal would require the approval of FIFA) and the second is that Inter feel that they are being messed around by Liverpool in this matter. Napoli may press again but with Benitez leaving at the end of the season they may not provide a longer-term solution the player is looking for. The interest of Gremio will likely be rejected by the player.}

See lots of discussion going on about Clyne. This season Clyne is slightly better than last season. The only reason why he is our regular is because he has no competition in the first team squad. It was the same with Skrtel who road his luck for many years and when Klopp arrived we had a manager who could finally see that Skrtel was not good enough.

Clyne's value is increasing and chances are he will be off next summer. He has no choice but to get stuck in and perform better as he knows potential suitors are watching.

This past summer the club wanted to move Clyne on. ED001 and ED002 were clear on this and is the reason why Clyne was unhappy.

There will be those who disagree, Clyne clearly is not the long term solution otherwise the club would not have been offering him around. He will be our regular until the end of the season. The more minutes he clocks up, the further his value increases.


1.) 29 Oct 2016 09:53:55
He's not a world beater but personally I think he is an excellent right back for a top six club.
Reliable, consistent and effective- and significantly better than he was last season.
I think we would struggle to find a good upgrade on him at the moment, although klopp must have had a couple of players in mind if he was trying to sell Clyne?

2.) 29 Oct 2016 10:15:49
Our squad is just far to big, we have many less games than last season.

There was no point in signing another RB unless we could move Clyne on. If we had signed another RB without moving Clyne on then that in return would also hamper chances for our youngsters. Clyne would also then be sitting on our bench and add no value as in the situation with Moreno.

Clyne will do for now, he is not the worst RB you will find. Problem is that he is 25 now and is not showing that he has the ability to take it to the next level.

3.) 29 Oct 2016 10:20:43
He's alright but excellent? nah, he's playing good but I agree max he will be off in the summer, I hope TAA can step up. the lad looks brilliant and I believe he can do the job, even now! but yeah it's worth playing Clyne until the end of the season get his value up and cash in.

4.) 29 Oct 2016 10:36:48
it would cost 30m plus to replace Clyne. also being English helps with quotas

unless he goes downhill expect to see him at Lpool for a few yrs.

5.) 29 Oct 2016 11:02:34
Clyne is serviceable and nothing more. Besides, good fullbacks left or right, are becoming a rare breed as most now are converted wingers who lack positional awareness and defensive nous. Clyne will do for now but excellent, he like his England colleague Walker, he is definitely not.

6.) 29 Oct 2016 11:20:27
I think the point is that while he won't go down as one of the greats, are there really many better right backs out there who we could just go pick up? Personally I don't think there are, would be interested to hear proven upgrades on him that we could go for instead.

7.) 29 Oct 2016 11:26:40
Why would it take 30 million to replace Clyne? We already have Flanno and TAA waiting in the wings and Milner will probably used as cover for RB anyways once a new LB arrives in the summer. People expecting Klopp to splurge money on a new RB will be disappointed. Clyne will simply be replaced by a new LB.

8.) 29 Oct 2016 11:34:41
Yeah I'm with the majority of posters here when I say he is no better than decent, he has a complete inability to mark on crosses. Borja Baston should have put us out of sight from Clyne's inability to mark him and Ibra could have pinched the 3 points last week from another Clyne switch-off. He's shown improvement in his all round play this season but his inability to man mark stops him being a top right back. If the rumours of £25m+ are true then we would be mad not to accept.

9.) 29 Oct 2016 12:19:26
Completely agree with IB. Replacing Clyne is free.

I see Flanno providing cover to TAA next year, unless he can really shake off his injury at Burnley, then it may be the other way round.

Would be nice for Clyne to leave with a medal or two, tho!

10.) 29 Oct 2016 14:13:57
nither of the two you've listed have proved they can play 1st team for a long run of a season-

If you want a title winning team nither of the 2 you listed would instantly make any top 6 team.

11.) 29 Oct 2016 15:25:35
I don't understand how people still see Flanaghan as an option. 2 years injured, and now 1 year on loan with probably minimal playing time. I like the boy and all that, but come on. It's too much of a risk to count on him, even as a backup. Some players will simply not make it - either due to lack of ability, lack of effort or bad luck. In Flanno's case, it's sadly bad luck. I'm not writing him off, but I don't see the light at the end of this tunnel.



16 Oct 2016 09:24:50
Do not understand why some are so intent on seeing Mignolet being brought back at this point. Maybe Klopp has decided he has seen enough of Mignolet.

Karius has hardly had a chance to prove himself and already some are saying the UTD match might be too much for him.

If anything, it will destroy any confidence Karius has if he had to all of a sudden be dropped. Bringing back Bringing Mignolet back will not fix the issue of goals being scored against us.

Karius needs games to prove himself and dropping him now after a couple of games will be moronic to say the least.


1.) 16 Oct 2016 09:42:17
Don't worry about it max, Jurgen has proved he knows best😉.

2.) 16 Oct 2016 10:58:55
Anybody thinking that is the answer at this point and that karius is dodgy is an imbecilr.

3.) 16 Oct 2016 12:46:59
I know a lot of United fans are hoping migs plays lol.

4.) 16 Oct 2016 13:22:37
Migs had 3yrs to cement the no.1 spot as his own, the fact he has not says all you need to know, Karius deserves a fair opportunity to make the position his own, only time will tell if he does so.

Regardless of who plays they should be given full support, big game for both teams, could put us top tho man utd will also see it as an opportunity to be right in the mix. Roll on monday night, confident of a win but think it will be tight with goals for both teams :)

5.) 16 Oct 2016 20:30:41
The GK position is like the Quaterback position in the NFL. There's only one spot and you cannot keep chopping and changing or you will not instill confidence in your team or back line. Klopp has seen enou of Mingo and so has many of us hence, Karius is here and will be the starter for the near future, just like Mingo was given three years to prove himself, an opportunity he has squandered.



06 Oct 2016 16:50:04
Saw an interesting stat the other day,

Liverpool have conceded the least shots out of any EPL team this season.

Obviously we are still conceding goals but the above suggests that it is not down to bad defending but to many silly individual player errors.

It will only be a matter of time before we start keeping clean sheets.


1.) 06 Oct 2016 17:12:02
I don't think it's easy to interpret stats like you have.

We are conceding less shots probably because we are attacking for most of the game. That doesn't mean there's nothing wrong with our defending.
All goals conceded are down to errors one way or another.

It's an interesting stat, but that's all it is IMO.

2.) 06 Oct 2016 17:44:48
im with ron here, and it also means that u don't need that many chances to score against us.

bt i think (hope) that it will improve. if anything we have improved a lot under klopp.

3.) 06 Oct 2016 17:55:04
Sure but we do leave ourselves open to many counter attacks? We are just very sufficient at getting back to clear danger. We also defend from the front.

Our set piece defending may not be there yet but is much better compared to last season. We were one of the worst teams when it came to defending set pieces last season.

Overall we are defending much better than what we were last season so the stat of conceding the least goals sort of ways up to the way we are improving as a defensive unit.

4.) 06 Oct 2016 18:02:33
Sorry meant conceding the least shots.

5.) 06 Oct 2016 21:07:12
Individual errors from past 4 good years? One of the main problem is our zonal marking on corners. So easy to score against us.

6.) 06 Oct 2016 21:12:39
Anything team let goals in I would not worry. I would if we can't score.

7.) 06 Oct 2016 23:08:15
Yeah end of the day we're scoring, even if we don't get a clean sheet all season i wouldn't be bothered to have 1 scored against us if we go and score 3+ which is becoming a regular thing at the moment.

8.) 06 Oct 2016 23:49:41
Yes, that is as others have said, open to interpretation. A very solid defence might "concede" a lot of shots as teams resort to taking pot shots from 20yards as they can't get through the defence. I take your point though, out of interest what is the shots to goals conceded ratio?

9.) 07 Oct 2016 18:00:58
To me, it is not open to interpretation. You can find one or a collection of individual errors for most of the goals we have conceded this season. Vs Arsenal, Moreno for being out of position (don`t care who lost the ball first as it his his job to stay tight to the high defensive line just like the other defenders) for the first, Lallana surely for their second (for preventing Clyne from putting a challenge on to the Ox) and arguable Mingo for the third for not anticipating the bounce proactively. Vs Burnley, Clyne for the first (passing to the opposition) and Lovren and Klavan for the second (for not putting in a challenge to stop Gray outside the box) . Vs Spurs, it was a collection of Lallana and Mingo. Vs LC, it was a collection of Lucas and Mingo (mostly mingo for passing to lucas for no reason) . vs Chelsea, a collection of Hendo, Lallana and Matip. Vs Hull, collectively poor defending. And vs Swansea, it was Hendo first for switching off and forgetting his man (he had Fer man to man, per Alan Shearer`s analysis on MOTD which was spot on) and Lovren for not getting goalside of Van der Horn for the flick to Fer for the goal. This was also present last season as it seems like no matter how great we play, somebody will eventually screw up. That is the frustrating thing and that is what needs to change.



01 Oct 2016 21:47:30
Not trying to count my chickens before they hatch but cannot wait to see Klopp and the players make an example of UTD. They just are not that good.

I want to see LFC seek and destroy.


1.) 01 Oct 2016 22:34:26
I think we'll beat them, I think Stoke will get a result tomorrow as well. they're doing nothing, not playing as a team. I hope they put rooney on when playing against us because he's useless lol but to be honest in my opinion there's no stand out player in their team who is what i'd call dangerous, we have multiple dangerous players, but it's all about the day. Looking forward to it, these 16 dayys are going to drag.

2.) 02 Oct 2016 00:17:07
Man Utd will never beat us with pace.
They'll never beat us with skill either.
The only way they could possibly get a result at Anfield, is to throw high balls into our box. Either a corner, set piece or cross. That's what we need to stop. or get much stronger defending them.
Still believe we can easily outscore them though, because their own defence is not that good either.

3.) 02 Oct 2016 08:09:28
Mourinho has a decent record against us and will no doubt keep things very tight in a don't get beat kind of stance then try nick a goal and sit on it, so I'd tone down what your saying because they may not be in the best moment right now but they still have some great players who will no doubt at some point click. Be positive but don't totally dismiss them like we're playing Rochdale or someone.

4.) 02 Oct 2016 08:35:10
I'm with you on this one Waro, we need to be confident but they have some good players and Jose will try everything to stop us getting a result. I remember all the time wasting when he brought his Chelsea to Anfield a couple of seasons ago.

United have a lot of height and power in the air, an area where we are still extremely weak, we could have could have been 2-0 down at half time yesterday.

5.) 02 Oct 2016 08:47:34
I agree waro, although they are going through a bad spell now they will undoubtedly lift their game for us. And to say they have no dangerous players is immature, ibrahimovic will be a nightmare from set pieces, as will fellaini. Still hope we can pressure them enough that they crumble.

6.) 02 Oct 2016 10:01:17
Waro, get what you are saying about not dismissing UTD. Just cannot see them dealing with our attack. Yeah they could nick a goal and park the bus aka Mourinho but there just seems to be a belief in the LFC team that no matter who we face, we will win.

After the first half vs Swansea I sat back and said to myself, watch Liverpool come out, equalize and go onto win it. We have a manager now capable of of turning a losing position into a win.

I may be to over confident but enjoying the moment to the fullest and long may it continue.

Great win today. Grinded out a result which we would have given up on in the past.

Klopp is doing a fantastic job at getting his squad to believe.

Firmino our best player hands down. The guy is everywhere and is showing nothing but class. Superb finish with the head today.

Four straight wins, come on Liverpool!

Ed002 has continuously said that FSG will do what is in the best interest of the club. Clearly they have not and will not say anything until they feel the need too but the silence from the club and Rodgers is very odd so we shall have to wait and see. It is like Ed001 suggests, a guessing game.

Ed002, so if Chelsea and Inter agree a deal for Icardi will Lucas go on loan to Inter or will he move on a permanent deal?


{Ed002's Note - They are probably not directly related as Inter are looking to complete a number of transactions this month.}

Sweet Chin

Schniderlin is not getting games while Wijnaldum is first choice at Liverpool. They are not even one in the same player.

Are you suggesting that we need to add Schniderlin to our midfield? If that is the case then we may as well bring Shrek from UTD too. Klopp will be doing more than just Kung Fu kicks on the sidelines. That is for sure.

Hopefully Matip will have Benteke in his back pocket. Palace will be trying to get in as many crosses as possible. All clubs know where Liverpool's weakness lies defensively. As long as we score more than the opposition then Bob's your uncle.

We just need to keep on sticking to our game plan. Press high, force the opposition into mistakes, attack in numbers and convert our chances.

Not going to be an easy fixture as Palace will try to do what UTD did and that is disrupt our quick passing game.

The club was offering Clyne around this past summer which pissed the player off which clearly suggests the club wants to move him on. With Clyne playing regularly it is surely increasing his value and could be that LFC will once again try to move him on next summer.
