Ed, do you see flannagan pushing on and getting a chance next season or do you think that ship has sailed? Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Whilst I am sure Jon Flanagan would relish the opportunity to return to the Liverpool squad I very much doubt that he is on Klopp's mind at all. Unfortunately I suspect that Liverpool would be open to selling Flanagan in the summer - he will make a good buy for someone.}

1.) 28 Mar 2017 10:57:06
I'd say he will go to Celtic under Rodgers can't see any premier league teams being interested In him.

{Ed002's Note - I think that would be a very good option if they did not have Lustig and Gamboa plus cover already in place.}

2.) 28 Mar 2017 12:16:48
Suspected as much, cheers.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 12:47:11
In a squad so severely lacking in fight and desire, the inevitable sale of Flannagan is criminal and if Klopp doesn't find a way to bring in more character/ get some out of the players we already have, it could be a terminal one. Right now, considering how much we need his attitude, I'd take him over everyone except maybe Bellerin in the PL.

4.) 28 Mar 2017 13:05:23
Could a Swap Deal for him and Tierney be an Option ed? Flanagan could play leftback for them?

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would they consider something like that. Give away their outstanding youngster for a player they have shown no interest in and would need to play out of position - would he be above Emilio Izaguirre in the pecking order even?}

5.) 28 Mar 2017 13:34:42
Sorry Ed was only asking.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

6.) 28 Mar 2017 15:27:29
Have to say I hope he surprises us all and gets a look in pre season, haven't had player with his attitude at the back since Carragher, if he can prove he's fit of course.

7.) 28 Mar 2017 15:58:54
Wouldn't we want retain Flanagan (and Wisdom) as he is Trained at the Club and would be considered Home-Grown for Champions/ Europa League squad registration. Who do you think will make the cut as the 4 Home-Grown players trained at the club?
Correct me if I am wrong, but registering U21 players would certainly come at the cost of squad depth.

{Ed002's Note - That would be a waste of their careers - Liverpool using them to meet quota. They wouldn't get a game.}

8.) 28 Mar 2017 17:33:14
Its a shame, but often players don't recover from such horrible injuries, or at least if they do it takes several years and most clubs are not that patient.

I really wanted him to work out as he was that scouse spine, and I will always remember his goal against Spuds!

9.) 28 Mar 2017 19:47:06
I don't care if I get down voted, sadly he just isn't good enough. He's a local lad with loads of passion and I admire him for it and during the 13/ 14 season he was a revelation but since the injury he has gone so far backwards and now can't get into Burnley's side, I mean Lowton isn't a bad player but if Flanno was anywhere near our level he would be starting ahead of him, at least occasionally.

10.) 28 Mar 2017 20:40:55
I agree with HX Red.

11.) 29 Mar 2017 03:41:28
I suspect the same fate awaits danny ings, these serious injuries cost the players vital momentum, TAA has took advantage of Flanagan's situation and milner was given the left back spot, his loan move to burnley has been a disaster.

12.) 30 Mar 2017 03:41:33
I understand the desire to have a passionate scouse lad to replace the like of Gerrard and Carra but if you aren't good enough, you aren't good enough. Unfortunately for the lad he's just not up to scratch.

{Ed001's Note - he showed he is up to scratch, but he is recovering from a serious injury. I would give him a bit longer personally. It takes years to get over what he has had and his attitude is first class.}



20 Jul 2014 16:47:18
Hi ed's, what's the situation with Ron Vlaar? Great World Cup and very much a stand out player in a very average Villa side. I believe there's only a year left on his contract and would be much cheaper than Lovren. Have we or anyone shown an interest? Cheers in advance


{Ed002's Note - Others yes, Liverpool no.}

1.) He's old and he was average at Villa last season!

2.) I think you may want to check what villa fans thought of him last season before you call him their "stand out" defender

3.) Are Man U looking at him ed?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ed 1 or 2, do you think we will attempt to sign Jonathan Tah in the summer? Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 16 Feb 2017 23:02:14
Tah for the reply 😉



24 Oct 2016 02:23:41
Ed, do you Wilson getting an opportunity in the first team soon? Boys on fire at the moment, apologies if this has already been asked.


{Ed001's Note - he was under consideration for Tuesday night, not sure if the plan has been changed due to the first team's good form though. There is some debate about whether to change the team or stick with it and keep the form going. Personally I still expect Wilson to feature.}

1.) 24 Oct 2016 08:11:47
Thats good, looking forward to seeing more of him, cheers for the reply.

2.) 24 Oct 2016 08:22:45
Speaking of youngsters, is there any news on a return for Ojo ed1? Can't wait to see more of that lad.

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was a while away mate. Probably talking end of the season.}

3.) 24 Oct 2016 09:07:34
Thanks ed1, was hoping it'd be sooner then that, gutted for him.

4.) 24 Oct 2016 11:09:09
I thought it was a minor back injury? What is the current situation is it worse or did he have a separate injury on trying to return?

5.) 24 Oct 2016 14:40:14
Wow end of the season? Had no idea it was so serious, devastated for the lad as i'm sure he would of played some part this season - hopefully he makes a full recovery.



19 May 2016 07:22:59
Wow, feel pretty flat today, threw it away after a first half where it could of been 3-0. Not going to start slamming individuals, (although there were a few questionable performances) as it won't change anything. After a result like that I try to remind myself that no player deliberately sets out to have a bad game, I'm sure they will feel bad enough already.




02 Mar 2016 06:29:01
Hi, this ones for ed 1 if he's about I appreciate that I may be looking at this in simplistic terms but I read earlier on sky that we've posted record profits. Admittedly it was a glancing read while at work, but I was wondering if you could give me more of an idea to how the club is performing on a financial front. Obviously we are remarkably wasteful when it comes to transfers, but if we're posting good profits things might not be as bad as I'd imagined in regards to our global appeal to foreign fans and the revenue that brings. Anyway cheers in advance.


{Ed001's Note - Ed002 is the one to speak to about this really, I have not yet had a chance to read through it all.}

1.) 02 Mar 2016 07:20:37
I think the sale of Suarez had a lot to do with the profits .



06 Jan 2016 06:27:45
bit Hi ed1, I was wondering if you had and insight as to what Jamie Carragher was like as a person when playing for Liverpool and what his general attitude was like. Reason I ask is that I remember reading a few comments months ago about how Gerrard refused to play out on the right and that his presence was more of a hindrance than helpful at times, that sort of thing, and I started to wonder if Carragher was anything like that.

Maybe a bit strange to ask so long on but Carragher was always my favourite player, always the first player I looked for on the team sheet and I always felt he was massively overlooked by England. Would be kind of disappointed if he was a bit of a nob.

Cheers bud.


{Ed001's Note - I love Carra, but he was a very strong personality that was part of a clique with Gerrard that did cause a few issues over the time they were at the club. Between them they were responsible for a lot of the disharmony that existed behind the scenes, as you were either one of them or suffered, as Fernando Torres found out, which led to his unhappiness.

The thing with Carragher was that he expected the same from everyone else as he gave himself. When a player didn't want to be 'one of the lads' so to speak, they would get a lot of stick for it. That was ok at times, but sometimes it led to problems with players being left on the outside and not feeling like they were part of the team.}

1.) 06 Jan 2016 06:45:57
Hold up there, Torres left partly because he felt alienated by Gerrard and Carra? I always had an impression that Torres got along with them just fine- especially Gerrard.

{Ed001's Note - they had a few disagreements at the time. Torres was not keen on going out with 'the lads' on nights out, preferring to stay at home with his family. It was silly on the part of what became known as 'the Scouse Mafia' as they were just being childish expecting everyone to be like them. There were times when those disagreements got out of hand and it led to a period of Torres sulking, initially, which the club never sorted out. The club allowed Gerrard far too much leeway and he thought he was a big man and everyone should do as he said. He was treated like some kind of king, with even transfers being run past him for approval at times. It was ridiculous.}

2.) 06 Jan 2016 07:05:16
Thanks ed, that's really interesting. A feel like a kiddy at story time doing this but I have a couple more questions!

Do you think Torres would have ever left if he didn't feel alienated? Or was the allure of trophies always going to be too strong? He might regret his decision to leave, despite the trophies. He never seemed to fit in with all the Chelsea lads.

I know Rodgers went to Gerrard for transfer approval, but did any other managers do it? Which manager was the biggest enabler of the 'scouse mafia'?

{Ed001's Note - Torres would have had his head turned I think anyway, but I don't think he would have been anything like so forceful about wanting out. I am not sure if Chelsea would have even pushed their offer in at the time if they were not aware of his unhappiness. It was probably for the best he left though, he was not the same player after his injuries and that has ruined him.

Rafa was the big enabler, hence why Gerrard loves him so much, he let him get away with a refusal to play on the right, he pretty much allowed him free rein. Worked well when he and Torres got on initially. Everyone after that was stuck with having to pander to Gerrard to get everyone else onside, as it was Gerrard's team by the time Rafa went. It was a shame because Gerrard could have been unquestionably the greatest player the club ever had, if he had just stayed on the right like Rafa wanted. I do think he would have ended up in the middle eventually, but he had so much to offer on the right, he might have even picked up that league winner's medal he so wanted.}

3.) 06 Jan 2016 08:00:37
Yeah, age would have nudged Gerrard into the middle of the park, but his own ego nudged him there instead. I wish he stayed on the right and put his dynamism to good use. He was pretty fast, he could beat a man, and he certainly knows how to whip a ball in. Plus, the flank doesn't really require as much tactical discipline as midfield does, and tactical discipline is probably his biggest weakness. But he would have been better than David Beckham in that position, I have no doubt about that.

If you told me before Gerrard's new book that he loves Rafa, then I wouldn't have been surprised. But now I am surprised, because he did take a few little swipes at him in the autobiography.

{Ed001's Note - I am surprised at that, he certainly never had anything bad to say to Rafa's face. Just shows how snide he is.}

4.) 06 Jan 2016 08:15:49
He arrived here in Sydney today with the other fellas. My mate went to the airport to greet them, and he implied that Gerrard seemed quite up himself, he said he didn't stop to sign merchandise like others did, which is disappointing. I know he had a long haul flight, but I think he has a duty to do those things, especially when the others are.

He also once met the whole Spanish team in hotel in Armenia. He said Reina and Sergio Ramos were legends to him (not surprised), Torres was quiet (not surprised), while Alonso was actually quite pretentious (surprising) .

I once met Rushie in Melbourne, sat down in the hotel bar lounge with him. Was surreal, nice guy. Ayre was pretty nice too.

{Ed001's Note - Gerrard is used to having his entourage pull him away from autograph hunters, so he can pretend it is not his fault he doesn't sign hundreds.}

5.) 06 Jan 2016 08:48:27
Hey Ed1, this is kind of related, but which player has had the most positive impact on the dressing room? It would be interesting to know who the guy is that keeps everyone working and the confidence up. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - why do you think I love Lucas? He is the one that all the players turn to, the one who helped Suarez, the one who convinced Coutinho to sign etc.}

6.) 06 Jan 2016 08:50:43
Nick, I saw a bit on the news surrounding their arrival at the airport. Many of the legends were happy to sign stuff and have photos, with the fans at the airport, though it seemed Gerrard strolled right on past them, barely even acknowledging their existence.

7.) 06 Jan 2016 08:51:29
Have to agree with the both u Nick and Ed, I also believe he would have been rated better than Beckham, I like many already think he was, but if he had played on the right for the majority of his career I think there would be any doubt in any ones mind he was better than Beckham, offered a lot more, a better all round game especially defensively compared to becks.

8.) 06 Jan 2016 09:00:53
Hi eds, I hoped it would be Lucas, it just seems like the nicest and most professional there. Thanks for the reply :)

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

9.) 06 Jan 2016 09:45:55
Ed 001's. you have Gerrard weighed up to a tee.

{Ed001's Note - do you know him well then?}

10.) 06 Jan 2016 11:38:59
Whenever I have met Gerrard he has been a right misery, as has sakho to be fair. But love both as players.
Pepe reina was always my favourite player to meet, met him load of times and he has a great personality.

11.) 06 Jan 2016 11:50:07
I'd Gerrard stayed on the right Keane would have linked well with Torres I think

Especially as Liverpool had and still have been crying for a winger who can cross a decent ball and score.

{Ed001's Note - Keane would have failed regardless, for the same reasons he did.}

12.) 06 Jan 2016 12:30:44
Can you please explain what you mean about Keane ed? I was in Tanzania the 6 month he was at the club and i could rarely watch the games. So i never really understood why he failed. I was under the impression that he did not get a proper chance because Rafa actually did not want him.

{Ed001's Note - he was misbehaving off the field. Rafa did want him and had asked for him specifically.}

13.) 06 Jan 2016 18:21:19
Cheers ed1, appreciate the info.

{Ed001's Note - you are welcome.}

14.) 06 Jan 2016 19:57:29
Thanks Ed, always thought it was the other way around.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, Rafa made it clear publicly that his ideal transfer window was Barry AND Keane. It wasn't Rafa throwing his toys out of the pram at getting Keane, it was Keane's own fault he never got his chance.}

If Moreno works on his defensive abilities? So his marking, tackling, positioning, if they were all to improve then sure he might be a decent left back, but these are all things that should come naturally and then be improved upon, you should not have to teach a left back in his mid 20's the basics.

Sturridge has himself said he's happy and understands why klopp is using him sparingly after being injured for most of the season, it's just good sense. Any money he starts in Switzerland.

I don't understand this idea that Henderson should be sold. He's a great player, leads by example, exactly what you want from a captain. He's the sort of player you build a midfield around.

Flanagan hands down, hopefully he's working hard over the summer to catch up and maybe get a look in pre season, big maybe though.

If he did that I dread to think of legal consequences we might face, Liverpool would do well to distance themselves from VVD as quickly as possible.

Nobody is to blame here but the person responsible for contacting his agent, he wanted Liverpool, Southampton should have been contacted immediately and negotiations should have begun there, not VVD's contract and his agents slice. I completely understand Southampton's frustration. Frankly its not lack of ambition that costs us in the transfer market, its our reputation with previous transfer dealings that make clubs stick the middle finger up, United, City, Chelsea all seem to follow procedure (at least in regards to high profile transfers), why don't we?

In short not really, when he was brought in I felt a real sense of pride having a norn irish manager in charge, that quickly went when the sun beds and whitened teeth appeared. I think once he'd got the job he felt like he'd made it, never a good thing.

To be honest if any player choses not to sign because his demands break our wage structure then good. Im sick to death of greedy footballers, its hardly like VVD would be worried about paying off his mortgage! It gets to a point when its not about football anymore and any transfer target should be more interested in enjoying the privilege of playing for Liverpool, instead of thinking about how much they can squeeze the club for. Shanks must be turning in his grave at the state of the modern game. Wish the FA had got in front of it in the late 90's and introduced a wage cap when the silly money started getting waved about. Sorry lads moan over.
