Hi Ed's,

Are you aware of any firm interest from other clubs in any of our players?

I don't think anyone will be surprised if Couts leaves in the Summer but is there any interest in our Goalkeepers or defenders? I just have a hunch the Jan shopping is not over with Virgil (New keeper maybe) and some outs may also be on the horizon.



{Ed002's Note - The club will look to sell Markovic and sell or loan Wilson. Grujic and Woodburn should leave on loan. Coutinho interests Barcelona and Salah Real Madrid. Interest in Manefrom Madrid has gone. Ward will look for an out in the summer. There was interest from Spain in Sturridge and Ings could get a loan. Origi will likely look to options in the summer. Flanagan perhaps will look elsewhere.}

I bet you feel like a parrot at times Ed2 mate lol.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 20:44:56
Thanks Ed 👍🏻.

3.) 27 Dec 2017 21:13:41
Not including Salah and Coutinho all of those players leaving could add up to a nice sum of money.

4.) 27 Dec 2017 21:21:54
Including salah and coutinho, it could add up to a lot more.

5.) 27 Dec 2017 23:50:47
U guys joking or what? Salah won't be leaving LFC in the near future. Perhaps in 3/ 4 years after performing consistently. I hope we start winning things quickly to avoid this.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine - you need to understand that clubs become interested in players doing well - particularly those who approach them. }

6.) 28 Dec 2017 08:15:38
You watch, we will build a solid defence and then the attack will get sold haha, I think we could cope with the loss of Coutinho with a top replacement brought in but to lose Salah too so early would be a blow, Van Dijk coming in and Keita in the summer gives our team a stronger look already, add to that a top keeper and more than likely a solid left back and we can look to push at challenging for top spot or a trophy, now let's hope Klopp takes off his blinkers regarding Mignolet, Ward deserves a shot now in the league as Karius is playing CL, any firm interest in us looking at Keepers Ed? Anyone been approached that you know of?

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. We have had a fair few looked at but nothing firm yet.}

7.) 28 Dec 2017 12:53:02
If ward doesn't get the FA cup game to impress then he should be demanding a move. The other two have had chances.

8.) 28 Dec 2017 18:38:03
Can anyone give the date of when Ed2 discussed the interest in Salah - if I'm reading this right? I used the search but there are pages and pages of results.

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - A few weeks ago - Salah had his representitives approach Real Madrid. Maybe search on Hazard or Neymar. Interesting to see Klopp telling the press about his apology for substituting him - anyway, this "lack of respect" has caused his agent to request a meeting.



14 May 2017 08:54:56
What's the plan for Markovic Ed? Spose his Anfield days are over? Are Hull likely to make a permanent offer? Also, was wondering whether you think we should've kept him with Mane away at AfCon and now out? Might've give us the width on the right we been so lacking.


{Ed001's Note - he is available for transfer and had no interest in coming back to be cover for Mane.}

1.) 14 May 2017 09:02:49
Hull will not be able to afford Markovic unless we pass him on to them for free and he accepts a much, much lower wage.

{Ed025's Note - with the sky money they will max, even the smaller clubs will be spending big this summer and lazar is well within their budget mate..

2.) 14 May 2017 09:24:08
If Hull were to be relegated they will still get a decent cut. Playing in the Championship has no place for Markovic within their wage budget.

Staying up, I cannot see Markovic agreeing to move their permanently.

3.) 14 May 2017 09:22:12
Even for a championship club?

{Ed025's Note - yes craig, with the parachute payments they will still have plenty of dosh to spend mate, and the likes of markovic will not break the bank as there is not much interest from elsewhere..

4.) 14 May 2017 09:41:14
In my head I'm thinking about a fee around 10m (could be well wide of the mark) . That would be within their budget I'm sure but it would be a large chunk I'm not sure they would want to part with.
I could be wrong but I don't see him joining Hull if they go down.

{Ed025's Note - hull are a very ambitious club craig and have very good financial backing in place, your take on the fee seems about right to me and that is well within their parameters mate..



10 Jun 2014 21:30:48
Sebastian Coates made the Uruguay squad. Is he likely to play and could he still be in Brendan's plans? Personally, strikes me like someone who could go on to blossom if sold -to our regret. Kinda like a Gerard pique / Paul pogba.


{Ed002's Note - The club will sell him if the can.}

1.) 10 Jun 2014 22:08:14
Giménez is injured so Lugano will likely partner Godin. Hopefully, from a Liverpool perspective, Coates will overtake Lugano, get some game time, perform & attract a buyer.

2.) I hope we keep him, I think he could be a good player

3.) From a Liverpool point of view I would like him to get ahead of Lugano, have a storming World Cup, have confidence up the wazzoo and come back to Liverpool performing like we have never seen before and playing Skrtel/Toure etc out of the team.

Unlikely I know, but if we are writing wish lists, this would be mine.

4.) I agree but BR doesn't like him for some reason. Easy replacement for Agger and backup to Sakho, besides we would also have Toure and Kelly. if we had Sakho, Skrtel, Toure, Coates (and Kelly) as our CB options next season I wouldn't mind one bit. He would also allow Ilori to go out and get game time instead of being 4th choice.

if not offers of around £4m come in then loan to a team in the Serie A would be my second option before selling him for dirt.

5.) Forgot about Caceres everyone?

6.) I'm surprised people still think he could make it at Liverpool. He's too slow, not a bit too slow but a way too slow. He's not good on the ball either. I'd imagine we'd be accepting £2m or who knows we could even accept half that.

Hopefully he will get some game time but I would expect Lugano to get the nod as per RedKev.

7.) Wez B - I believe Caceres plays LB for Uruguay

8.) Caceres will likely play at full-back.

9.) 11 Jun 2014 17:38:28
Maxi Peirera is the first choice right full back



09 Jun 2014 13:11:53
can anyone tell me what the plan is for Enrique? If he's staying will he be fit for August?


1.) Of caurse he should be in Brendan's plan. We need two left backs with the number of games awaiting us next season. Most likely, he will be used in physical games and in games we need to be less attacking

2.) Leaving I imagine. Moreno looks like his replacement with flanno as his back up.

3.) The plan is to get rid. He is lazy, stupid and quite frankly dangerous. No positional sense, no idea about defending (bar the occasional shielding of the ball). He is quick, but I imagine that's gone after this injury. If anyone buys him we will use Flanagan and Can as backup for Moreno.

4.) El pistolero, Enrique is a very good left back. He is defensively strong, but not so effective going forward, and unfortunately is prone to injury. I do not appreciate fans slating players in the way you just did. Personally, I would be happy to keep him as backup/competition to Moreno. Moreno is very strong going forward and could learn a lot defensively from Enrique.

Red Rum

5.) Well said Red-Rum

6.) I disagree. I can't believe that you think that his best qualities are his defending. The only thing Enrique really had going for him was his pace & strength; Going forward.

In the 13/14 season Enrique played 8 games, assisting & scoring on 2 occasions. Making his Assists/Goals:Game ratio 1:4, one of the most prolific fullbacks in the EPL last season. 12/13 Enrique played 29 games, returning 4 assists (1:7.25, relatively good). Attack certainly wasn't his weak point.

I don't 'slate' a player rashly. I believe that before anyone passes judgement they should allow the judged a reasonable amount of opportunity to prove their abilities, or lack of, before passing judgement. For example Iago Aspas, unfortunately for him he is contending with arguably the most potent forward line in world football. Naturally playing time has been limited, and when playing time has been available to Aspas he has been forced to play in a wide role which for someone of his pace & strength is not exactly ideal. His specialism is creating space for himself in the box, he can move very cleverly, and he's not a bad finisher of the ball. He's an out-and-out poacher. He has a fantastic attitude, he hasn't really sulked at not playing, and has supported the team fully when on the bench. It's a shame he will most likely be leaving this summer, I would've liked to see him get an opportunity in his more favoured position.

Enrique on the other hand has been the only established LB at the club for 3 years, has been playing regularly & has impressed in flashes until his positional competence has been sorely exposed. He is more fragile than China & is months overdue in terms of recovery time, this isn't a coincidence. The injury is serious, and will likely have a devastating effect on his best attribute, pace. Enrique, in the 8 games he's played this season, has been involved in 40 duels, winning 50% (20) of them. If he is now lacking pace, coupled with his ineptitude at reading the game (see duels won) he will find it very hard to right the mistakes he will inevitably make. In the 8 games he played this Season he has attempted 8 tackles, winning 5 (72.7% success). Not exactly setting the world on fire with his defensive stats. In fact, contrary to your point his best area is his ability to get forward.


7.) I don't think whatever way you rate him it's right to call him lazy, stupid and dangerous. Come on. I've seen some of your posts el pistelero. You're better than that. Personally I think he's a good defender and at going forward. Your stats are from an injury plagued season. It's hardly fair to judge him on that so rashly. If he was fit I'd be happy to have him but it seems to me he might be replaced by a more youthful option in Moreno with flano as backup and possibly Can as an option if we're stuck.

8.) Perhaps stupid was an ill advised description. I will rescind that comment as there was no need for that. I just felt as though that was the only way to describe his decision making. The irony is mate that last season was his most productive, if he was injured when playing he managed to assist at a rate higher than any other full back in the league. He is lazy and his decison making is dangerous to us. When he decides to just run with the ball and gets dispossessed he is very slow at getting back, his decision making without Carra in the team is dangerous. We lost so much in JC, natural leader who can talk a defensive unit through the game. It really isn't a coincidence that GJ is being highlighted as a liability this year, frankly Jon has put him to shame this year. The problem with having wing backs like Johnson and Enrique is that when you remove the leader they just seem to go forward without a call, no one communicates. I reckon Kirikou will fix this next year, however if as I believe he will have permanently decreased pace that is besides the point because he will have no means to rectify his mistakes.

I do apologise for calling him stupid, that was harsh. I couldn't think of a more appropriate way to describe his decision at the time, I do not apologise for the rest.

Not easy for me to say but good luck to Southampton this afternoon. Keep a clean sheet and you never know.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 16:15:48
Well, Soton just scored.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 16:19:01
1-0. Now to keep that clean sheet.



01 Jan 2018 13:09:26
Happy New Year to the Ed's, regular posters and lurkers. Loving the LFC roller coaster under Klopp and FSG. Here's to more of the same and maybe some silverware in the not too distant future ✊🏻.

On a side note, best of luck to the blue half of Liverpool today. Keep a clean sheet and you never know 😉.




13 Dec 2017 12:51:33
Hi Eds,

With regard to potentially strengthening at centre half - .................


{Ed002's Note - You are really on the wrong page for this - this is the Liverpool page. We have a European page for such questions.}



02 Dec 2017 19:53:13
Hi Ed's. What's your opinion of Justin Kluivert at Ajax? Don't spose there's anyway Ajax would sell at this stage of his development but is he generally considered a major prospect?


{Ed001's Note - yes, he is very highly rated, but they are not looking to sell him yet.}

1.) 02 Dec 2017 20:23:17
Its probably in his best interests to stop at Ajax aswell for the foreseeable future, moving anywhere else at the moment would probably ruin his development.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 21:18:31
If he keeps his head screwed on and stays at Ajax for 3/ 4 years he could be top notch.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 22:55:46
I live in Amsterdam and this guy is really well thought of here, think the fans would riot if Ajax sold him.



02 Sep 2017 00:49:15
If anyone here isn't ok with the transfer business or with Klopp's decisions I challenge you to fisticuffs. Name the time and place. 😜💪🏼.


1.) 02 Sep 2017 07:49:27
I don't think it's been a fantastic window, we are at least 1 centre back short, a goalkeeper short and we should have signed a top left back. I'm happy with the business done I just feel like we should have done more.

2.) 02 Sep 2017 07:57:27
I'm not, we've strengthened our strengths but not the weakness at the back.

There's a small park just off Ashton Old Road, ten min walk from the Etihad. See you there for a tear up on the 9th Sept ( Man City away )

3.) 02 Sep 2017 08:26:49
A goalkeeper short?!?!?!? We have 3 how many do people want. And one of those i'm pretty sure many wanting us to buy a GK have never actually watched play.

4.) 02 Sep 2017 08:45:43
No team got all their transfer dealings done. Utd wanted Perisic and got snubbed. So did Chelsea with Llorente and City did not get Sanchez. The main question is are we much better overall than last summer and the answer is an emphatic YES.

Also, we have gotten a HUGE part of our business done for next summer with Naby coming in. Don't care if a CB comes in or not cos Klopp will not spend on a player he does not really rate. He wanted VVD or nobody else, just like he switched Milner to LB as he did not see one that would be good for us last summer. I like that way of thinking as Klopp thinks big and not small. Enough with settling for second rate players and at least give our boys like Gomez a go. As aresult, I will join the OP in issuing that fisticuff challenge myself.

5.) 02 Sep 2017 10:26:56
Haha love it NickyD.

Are there any rumours of Monaco in for a Lemar replacement? If there are then maybe this rumour does have some substance.

If we're going to make a real challenge next year we've got to be in for a quality keeper. I'd add to that a new CB to play with VvD, a creative type midfielder to replace little Phil (you all know the options by now), another midfield pivot to play alongside Keita and another striker - we'd look a little short up top if we had long term injuries. So 5 1st team additions - good enough to go straight in the team.

I'm assuming 1 or 2 of our current keepers will be allowed to find new clubs (Migs and Bogdan? ) + Can (shame - always liked his endeavour) and Sturridge. Possibly Wijnaldum and Ings may also be considered surplus + 1 of Lovren or Matip.

Obviously there may also be others leaving which I assume will help with FFP and getting those 5 new faces in.

Here's hoping. Either way I trust Klopp to do what he can with the tools at his disposal. I just won't understand it if he doesn't prioritise a new keeper. C'mon Jurgen - you played centre half - you must know the significance of a quality, organising, brave keeper? Makes the whole back line better.

What's the score if Keita, Can or Coutinho were to get a bad injury before joining their new clubs? Is it just tough on the new club and look to the insurance? Could it affect the deal? Bit like forking out for a new car then finding out it's in the garage for 6 months - or worse - a write off.


{Ed002's Note - Then the transfer would be delayed - except for Can.}

But do we agree he is a ball winner at least?


{Ed001's Note - no. He is nothing but an average lump of a player. He is in desperate need of a George Graham/Sam Allardyce/Tony Pulis type of coach to teach him the basics of defending, rather than just jumping in and hoping to win the ball.}

I like McGuire Jim. Big old no nonsense ball winner who can also play a bit. Think he's rarely injured too.

As someone who played as a sweeper it was always good for me to know the guy next to me would attack the ball and win it most times. I could anticipate anything I thought he might miss and cover accordingly. With VVDs pace and reading of the game I think McGuire could be exactly the right sort of player to pair him with.


{Ed001's Note - god no he is a carthorse of a player! He has absolutely no positional sense but somehow being big and quick is enough to make up for being crap in England. Decent enough on the ball, apart from the fact that he almost always gives the ball away at the end of his runs forward.}

Had to mark him the other year in a charity game at Money’s. Couldn’t get near him. got to say Michael was better though. Lee Walker soon crunched him. Land port 72 eh? Salute pal. I was Mainland Sports.

I know Dave Birmingham and his brother Michael yeah? Did you know Dave turned pro boxer a couple of years ago? Maybe that’s the difference between talent that makes it and your pal. Commitment and hard work. Anyway, who did you play for with Dave - a local Pompey team?

I started thinking yesterday that I wouldn't mind too much if Man Ure got through last night. It would've meant another 2 tough competitive games for them and may have taken their eye off the Prem. Personally I don't think top 4 is nailed on for us yet - there's still loads to do and if Chelsea go out tonight v Barcelona there'll also be more focused on their remaining league games. Sorry to sound a bit pessimistic but we got to make sure we keep our grip on that top 4 spot.

Thought Lovren and Virgil looked good together all game. Fingers crossed they can build on that over the rest of the season. I'd be tempted to leave the full-back situation as is and maybe look to an upgrade for Matip in the Summer if someone becomes available. Other areas to upgrade for me would be Migs + a creative midfielder. Also, if Origi, Ings and Sturridge move on we need to be replacing with 1 or 2 new faces as cover for the Fab 3. Not suggesting any names for the new recruits, I'll trust Klopp for that detail.
