Hi Eds. I read a report stating that LFC was in talks with Hannover over loaning one of our strikers. I would have thought it would have been Ings, but just read something else saying it could be Woodburn. Any news from your side?

{Ed001's Note - no sorry I haven't heard anything about that.}


1.) 08 Aug 2017 16:33:27
ok, Ed001. Thanks.


2.) 08 Aug 2017 17:52:29
Isnt Woodburn 17? i thought you had to be 18 to move abroad on loan.


3.) 08 Aug 2017 18:10:37
It was reported to be a loan deal for Kent however, Klopp may have ended that alleged deal and Kent will be kept.

You can add Zeca, Brazilian left-back 23 years old, to the list of LBs being linked with us. Plays for Santos and has featured for the Brazil U20s and the recent Olympic Gold winning team. Is right footed so he can play both on the left and the right. Super fast, athletic type, but a bit on the short smallish side for me (in the videos I saw) . But then, Roberto Carlos was even shorter, so what do I know. Seems to be a very offensive minded player.

Probably just a case of the agent creating waves and interest in his client in Europe, and everyone and their grandma knows we're in the market for LBs.

And on a side note, stories in the media are out that Lucas Leiva has had discussions with his original club, Gremio in Brazil, and will probably go back and play with them next year. If that is the case, I thank him for 10 years of sterling, loyal service and wish him all the best for his remaining career. There's always something special about players who knuckle down, give 100%, persevere, and just do their job despite all the drama and distractions, in the game. YNWA.

Hi Ed002. Do you have any information/news about Loris Karius, the goalkeeper from Mainz, as a transfer target for LFC? The source is twitter (and Essexred below), but since his name was lumped along with Sane and Gundogan on the tweet, I thought I would ask you the question. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would rather not answer questions from Twitter but at least you were honest where it came from. Mainz's Loris Karius has been previous linked with interest from Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Schalke and Valencia - but it is Aston Villa who are looking for a January move. Previously played for Manchester City.}


1.) 13 Nov 2015 12:24:53
Thanks Ed.

Ahead of the new season and after a crazy transfer window, I wanted to extend sincere thanks to all the Eds (particularly Eds 001, 002, 007, 025 and 033) for their selfless work on this page. It's a thriving global community and always a pleasure to be part of (but I still want a kiddies corner page for certain posts and posters) . Many thanks again.

{Ed025's Note - your welcome ra..

Ahead of the new season, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to all the Eds (particularly Eds 001,002,007,025 and 033) for all the hard selfless work they do. It was an exciting season and a crazy summer. This is a thriving global community, and it's a great pleasure to be part of it. (But I still want a "kiddies corner" for certain posts and posters. Does anyone use the word nincompoop anymore? "The nincompoop pit" sounds really good. Three bans and all your posts automatically go into the pit. And then you have to grovel and plead with Ed002 to be let back in to the main page. 😁)

{Ed001's Note - nice thinking ra!}

Please, make Harry the Editor for the nincompoop pit Ed001 😂.

Owen Hargreaves:

"Liverpool are close to it [being title winners]. The development since Klopp took over in October 2015 is similar to his time in Dortmund. There he won the Bundesliga title in his third year. The Premier League is very hard to win. You have to be a bit lucky too. But you also make your own luck. And Klopp works very hard with his players. You can't practice that [defending set-pieces well]. To be honest at Bayern we actually never really practiced them. You simply must have players who are unbeatable in the air".

{Ed025's Note - nice of him to say that ra, but he is such a tosser that no one really takes much notice of what he has to say mate..


1.) 30 Aug 2017 17:58:56
True I believe he said Everton will be a top 6 team so obviously he knows F all about football 😂.


2.) 30 Aug 2017 19:23:31
With arsenals transfer window I think Everton could finish 6th.


3.) 30 Aug 2017 17:46:24
Have to say i agree with you ed025 the blokes an absolute yoghurt and his voice does my bloody head in! What nationality it he canadian german english? He fits in well on bt sport!

{Ed025's Note - well he speaks fluent garbage lee whatever county he hails from mate..


4.) 30 Aug 2017 17:50:39
Everton also are contendors to become the 4th best team in merseyside after lfc snr, rsrvs, trnmr rvrs😝😝.

{Ed025's Note - if we get a forward liverbird you may want to eat those words come may, your reserves never even threatened our boys in the U23 league last season so you tell a lot of porkie pies mate..


5.) 30 Aug 2017 18:28:15
Ed25 will be livid with you, Farno.

{Ed025's Note - i can take it bingo, my skin is thicker than an elephants mate and i have heard it all before, mainly from my own family..


6.) 30 Aug 2017 20:53:30
Hargreaves is not that bad. At least he doesn't have that shrill, nagging, pipsqueak voice of some of those better known others. As for the thick skin Ed025, I suggest you look at your gastronomic preferences, before blaming that obviously angelic family of yours, LOL.

I think that it's not just the Coutinho situation that has been taken behind doors. If there is anything happening with VVD, Keita and Ox (and anybody else we don't know about) then it too has been taken out of the public's view. The club has seen what having leaks and and an openness with the Press has given them - mostly eggs on face that they haven't wiped off yet. Just look at Klopp's face, voice and expression when the Coutinho name is brought up in conferences. The volume goes down, his face is without expression and he seems to be almost mumbling "nothing has changed". The man is clearly operating under instructions to keep quiet.

You could argue that FSG have made a statement and are simply sticking by it. But the situation is at the point of no return and Coutinho no longer has a tenable position. I don't see Coutinho playing for the U23's or sitting on the bench after 1st September. Nor being able to listen to 58,000 booing fans if he is allowed to enter a match. You can do that with a Sakho, simply because he was less important to the team.

If I was a betting man (and I'm not) then I would bet that the club have been working behind the scenes to get something done with VVD and Keita, and then to come out and release Coutinho so that statements and declarations are quickly forgotten.


1.) 26 Aug 2017 04:52:11
I don't expect the crowd to boo him if he stays. I will support him as a Liverpool player until he moves on.


2.) 26 Aug 2017 08:37:27
Ra, Suarez did way worse that Cou would ever do and he was not booed in his first game at Anfield so don't fret, bro. Cou right now, is like a family member who crossed us and tho we are disappointed and angry with him on one hand, we as family, realize that he is still at the end of the day, one of ours and we will forgive and support him as he tries to make amends (provided he is trying) for his sins. It will be a long process BUT in the end, cooler heads will prevail cos like it or not, he has grown on us over the years and that in itself, should change nothing overall. If you inject too much emotion into it, you cannot make rational decisions.


 

 

21 Aug 2017 01:13:29
I'm not looking past Hoffenheim, but the worry is now whether Klopp will use Coutinho against Arsenal at Anfield. My guess is that he won't, simply because he hasn't been in training for so long. Wenger has already announced that Sanchez will be playing (let the mind games begin) .

What a start to the season. I can imagine the pressure on Klopp. Not getting the players he wanted (yet), UCL qualification, followed by Lallana out injured, followed by the Coutinho situation being up in the air.


1.) 21 Aug 2017 08:46:40
Who cares. Sanchez played both games last season and they still got smashed. We will get CL footie, Cou will stay and we will be ready for Arsenal as big games is what we do best while big games is what Arsenal do worst.

You are in desperate need of some holidays. Preferably where there is only seas, sun and sand, with no humans around. And plenty of time to reflect on what other interests to pursue aside from football in your free time, because football is bringing out the violent side in you.

Careful Stanni. You're elevating yourself to Macca status with such a rumor. Can you take the slating that'll happen if it's not true? 😉😁. (I'm just pulling your leg, don't take me seriously) .

Yup. Seems to be for 26million. Good business.

They already look stupid. They bid only 31million at the beginning of the summer, and suddenly he is worth over 90million to them, a couple of months later? Looks more and more like a game of roulette.

After watching him play in the summer and the first couple of games of the season, I knew we had gotten a good player simply because he clearly had come to play (the same could not be said of a few others) . He was running all out from the first day, and is now integrating forward pressing into his game. Mane seems a bit casual at times, but this man will run from goal post to goal post with a ball (just like Firmino) every single time. I shudder to think where our league position would be without his goals.

If you take out the non-British players from Liverpool, then the same thing will happen to the club as would happen to any other team in the Premier League. Some very good, some good and some mediocre players would be taken out. And so, therefore?

As usual, there is no argument being made here whatsoever, and just arguing with whatever comes to mind for the sake of winning the argument. No reasoning, no justification being offered aside from the usual "I said so".

Come on guys. The transfer season is over, and it's a brand new season ahead. Can we dispense with the cynicism and just project all our energies forward, so that we just win that damned title after such a freaking long wait? The man is clearly stuck between a rock and a hard place, and he knows it (Coutinho) . And few will argue that he will be needed during a very important season for both Klopp and FSG's tenure. I'm not suggesting that anyone forget or forgive anything. Just saying, set it aside for now, and focus on pushing the team upward and forward.

Nope. Disagree with you on this 5 Gold stars. A contract stipulates the beginning and the end of a employer/ employee relationship with all its terms and conditions (I'm no lawyer but I've signed tons of them) . If there is a renewal it has to be mutual, just like the initial contract, otherwise I don't see how any side owes anything to the other, once the contract is over. Every player has the right to get the highest financial reward for himself, while every club has the right to get the best possible player for the lowest possible reward. Isn't this how the professional football works? Ed002 is right with the Matip example. Matip was offered a new contract which he declined, as Can is doing here. And what about the young kids? A kid like Rossiter who grew up and dreamed of being a a first teamer. He gave enough years trying to develop himself and stayed loyal to the LFC setup. Why didn't anyone force the club to renew his terms instead of letting him join Celtic? The club did not see a need for him so they let him move on. Similarly, Can feels the need to be elsewhere. Once the contract is over, the reasons for non renewal from either side are really of no significance. And in Can's case, the man has fulfilled his obligations either equal to or far above expectations. So why create a situation where he is portrayed as some kind of bad guy?
