Hi Edds

Reports out that Lucas may be off this summer.

Wondering if there is any interest in him from anyone.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest right now.}

Thanks for the reply Ed.

Hi Eds
Any truth in the rumours about Barcelona's Sergi Samper?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know but it is hard to see how he would be ready for the first team at Liverpool.}

Hi Eds

Been reported that Manchester United have dropped their interest in Kroos.

Is he someone that we would be interested in?


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown no interest in him.}

1.) Reminds me of Gerrard when he was younger. Maybe Ian A will pull a hat out of the rabbit.

2.) Think Kroos is a quality player and a potential replacement for Gerrard. Along side Lallana, it would really beef up the midfield options

3.) More like Kroos wants Champ's League football, and rightly so.
United are in for a tough transfer window with no European football, just as we have witnessed.

Love the site - first post here Eds, so please be gentle!

With Spurs missing out on UCL, any chance of of Liverpool making a raid for any of their players - LLoris in particular


{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so. Liverpool has never shown an interest in Hugo Lloris.}

1.) With talk of bringing in a keeper though from ed001 then any interest in Lloris wouldn't be a surprise I don't think. Spurs wouldn't sell cheap though!

{Ed002's Note - There are other clubs interested - Liverpool aren't.}

2.) 18 May 2014 16:54:33
How about Vertonghen? Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Spurs page.}

Lol can't beleive why people choose to hit the disagree button mate. Strange.

Most complete .....

Hi Ed's.

With Benteke's imminent arrival, I know the focus is now going to be on clearing out the squad, with Balotelli being one of the prime candidates for moving on.

Just wondering what your opinion is on how much of his failure last season was down to his own attitude and how much was down to how BR played him?

I know I am probably in a minority here, but can't help thinking that Balotelli isn't beyond redemption if played properly.


{Ed001's Note - he is crap, he is a complete bell and should never have been brought in. The guy is a whining little brat who wants to blame everybody else for the fact he can't be bothered to try. Waste of talent who will never be anything more than that.}

1.) 21 Jul 2015 12:57:51
great reply ed, i feel he's a great a waste of talent as stan collymore

{Ed001's Note - good comparison. They both point the fingers at everyone else, rather than looking at themselves to see exactly what the problem is.}

2.) 21 Jul 2015 13:46:53
To be honest I don't think he is a waste of talent. I don't think he has any talent in the first place.
I hear people banging on about his ability.where has he ever shown any ability?
The guy has been very lucky to play for.sorry sign for 4 big clubs (the 2 Milan teams, City and Liverpool), and yet he has pretty much failed at all 4.
My worry is, who would actually take a chance on this guy.
Is it not a crying shame that this guy has been given the chance to play football for a living and has let it pass him by?
He is a disgrace.

3.) 21 Jul 2015 18:50:53
He won`t be the first nor the last to waste a whole career filled with potential. There are many like him at the Football Careers` ash heep, I`m afraid.

4.) 22 Jul 2015 12:26:25
Thanks Ed. Just a real pity the guy is pissing his talent away - such a waste.

Hi Eds
Watched our U21's play yesterday in Waterford, Ireland.
Whole team played very well, especially in 2nd half, but one lad in particular caught our eye, Sergi Canos. Only 18, but played on both wings, strong, quick and able to put in some great crosses.
Definitely one to keep an eye on for the future.

Just seen the transfer ban against Barcelona has been upheld.

What impact do you think this will have on the European transfers?


{Ed002's Note - It will make absolutely no difference at all.}

1.) If they would have imposed it 6 months ago it could have make a big impact on LFC's 2014-2015 season, though.

2.) Great point that fanobip.

sorry if being dense here.
do you mean FSG are in negotiations to sell the club to new owners?

I think it is more likely to be in Wembley as Barcelona are playing Celtic in Dublin.

Saw similar reports.

Deal is for £4.3M, with him staying on at Belgrade until the Summer.

Great news, especially that it was closed out in time so that we didn't have to drag the tosser over to Thailand with us

HI Eds and Reds

Just liked the FB page - looks good. Twitter might be a useful addition as well, but I was thinking are about how you could possibly make the main website page a bit more user friendly.

I love the site and visit it several times a day, but I have to put my hand up and say I am one of the guilty few that have been pulled up by the EDs with a RTP (and maybe a small slap as well :-) ) after posting a question.

It’s honestly not because I haven’t bothered to look, but sometimes it can be hard finding previous posts about a player, especially those from the Eds.

I was wondering if you have ever thought about setting up the page in a “threads” format so all the discussion on a given topic would all be in the same place (possibly with a button to jump to the posts from the Ed’s)

Any way just a thought – I am certainly not complaining as I really appreciate all the hard work from you guys. This is without doubt the best site I have found for getting to the real story.


{Ed001's Note - that doesn't change anything, hence why forum moderators have to spend most of their time deleting repeat threads.}

Biggest problem about dealing with racism is many people still deny how big the problem still is in Britain.

Most racism is not about skinheads shouting abuse or attacking people, it's the other more subtle things; not getting that jobs or promotion, your kids into the the best schools, turning up to rent a house, then finding out all of a sudden it's "gone", being harassed by the police, etc.etc.

You see it in football, the lack of people of color in Management or refereeing.

We have no hope of getting rid of the trolls if we don't deal with the institutional racism first.

Yes, most people here agree we need a solid CDM to give some protection to the back 4, but aside from that does anyone see either Skrtel or Lovren leaving this summer and if they did, would that require us to replace them or do we have enough cover?

With the names given, Dus7n wa clearly asking about central defenders.

With Ilori returning from loan being balanced by Coates moving to Sunderland, Gomez clearly not expected to be a 1st team player, Skrtel's contract still not 100% nailed down and serious question marks over Lovren, why is asking if Liverpool are interested in any new CD's so stupid?

May be the two players he mentioned aren't anywhere in the frame, but are any other CD being considered.


{Ed001's Note - are you still not getting what the issue was? Needing to improve the defence on the end after the club bought two defenders. Coates was not at the club last season, so how on earth does Ilori's return balance up losing a player we never had available? I give up.}}
