Hi Eds.

Some reports that Can has signed a pre- agreement with Juventus.

Any truth in this?

Thanks for all the hard work.


{Ed001's Note - some reports are made up nonsense. Can cannot sign anything yet.}

1.) 09 Dec 2017 11:21:08
I was led to believe that Emre would sign in the summer, the vibe around the club and how we are playing is a major influence, yes Juve are interested but I still believe Emre will sign on - if he does leave then it must be something between Klopp and Emre as Macca reported.

Thanks Ed. Appreciate the reply.

{Ed001's Note - welcome. He can sign a pre-contract agreement in January mate.}

3.) 10 Dec 2017 09:31:12
I guess the reports may not be completely untrue. Its feasible that his representative has agreed a package with Juve which will then be formally signed once the window opens.

Either way Ed Can is off and to be honest I think he will do very well in Italy.

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.}

1.) 30 Jun 2016 01:13:00
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.}

Hi Eds
Thanks for all the hard work over the transfer window.
I didn't hear anything after the talk he might go to Turkey, did Markovic get a move anywhere in the end?


{Ed001's Note - no mate.}

Is the Sakho transfer official?


1.) 01 Sep 2017 00:35:19
Announced tomorrow.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 00:42:13
It will be soon.

For Banter.
Hi Eds,
Putting aside transfers for a moment does anyone think we need to look at our formation. Can't help thinking our midfield doesn't protect the back 4 enough.
Maybe a proper DM hard man in front of them would keep the pressure off them.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 20:58:27
Playing Moreno as LB is what's unsettling the CB's in my opinion, the only game they have been ok was when Robertson played. We need to upgrade our CB's yes but as needing a change in formation no not needed at all.

If Robertson is not fit enough yet to play 2 games a week then we need to put Milner in the LB position until he's ready and that will help with what's happening at the moment.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 21:15:03
I understand your point savvy but I don't think Morenos presence makes Lovren pass the ball straight to opposition striker, lose aerial battles or make Migs miss catches. Sometimes players just sent good enough, and right now as iv said elsewhere on here, I think Lovren and Migs are a bigger liability than Moreno.

{Ed002's Note - We are not going down that road because there is an error in there and people will become confused again.}

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.}

Thanks Ed. Just a real pity the guy is pissing his talent away - such a waste.

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.}}
