Lots of rumours about Bruno Fernandes agent this evening. He should apparently be in england to sort out a deal in the next couple of days, or at least make dome progress. Man United should unfortunatly be in favor for his signature.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 22:32:37
Utd bound smedegaard as you say mate.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 23:28:48
If he thinks United is the best place for his career at this point then I'm happy for him to go there. They're miles off anyone who finished top 4 this season and I've seen nothing to suggest they'll be any better next season (e. g. the link to bang average Harry Maguire for stupid money) .

3.) 03 Jul 2019 22:39:21
I think eds have said a long time ago that United was his likely destination.

4.) 04 Jul 2019 00:39:34
Has anyone actually seen him play for Sporting Lisbon?

5.) 04 Jul 2019 07:46:31
Dont write off united, it all depends on what mentality they go with, if they have the new manager one theyll make a flying start, if its the we dont like him mentality theyll be fighting with Everton and wolves for 6th.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 09:16:15
I think they will start the year really well the question is will the wheels well and truly come off 10-15 games in, they have some decent players there but some questionable attitudes.

7.) 04 Jul 2019 12:23:49
Think some of you are giving United far too much credit and Ole showed at the back end of last season that he's not really cut out for the job. Name me a player - De Gea aside - who would get into any of the sides who finished top 4 last season?

8.) 04 Jul 2019 13:37:36
Rashford and Wan-Bisskah would get into Chelsea or Spurs side. Pogba also would if he could focus solely on his football.

9.) 04 Jul 2019 13:58:38
I'm not even sure De Gea gets in any of the top 4 sides based on the last couple of seasons. Alisson, Ederson and Kepa are all clearly better in my opinion. Lloris is debateable but I think I'd say DDG shades it. De Gea has endured a pretty spectacular fall from grace in the last year and he's not even the standout player at United any more.

I would say that Luke Shaw probably gets into any top 4 side except ours. He's better than Zinchenko, Delph, Davies, Rose, Emerson and Alonso. Mendy is never fit so has no right to even be included in the debate. Robbo is clearly superior to them all though ????.

10.) 04 Jul 2019 14:31:11
I want the brazilian Everton soares, wat a piss take that would be!

11.) 04 Jul 2019 16:16:37
I'd take de gea over lloris myself. I don't rate lloris as high as many others. I think if you stuck him in United's team for the last 5 years and de gea behind vertonghen and alderwield it would be a clear winner. The standard of keepers in England is strong now, the fact that England's no1 keeper is no better than mid table standard currently. Big teams are splashing out for the best keepers as they make a big difference. The level of full backs on the other hand is very poor at moment. City have had to spend about 120 or more on walker danilo and mendy, and they still aren't strong there. Ashley young and Valencia, 2 wingers with average careers into their 30s have been what United have relied on. Rose doesn't look happy, trippier is not a defender. Azpilicueta can only defend and Alonso can only attack, neither suit a back 4. Arsenal use 34 yr olds or else young wingers.

The fact United had to pay near 50mil for a RB with 40 games played in his career is because the quality is so poor.

Makes you wonder even just recently the likes of cole, evra, Coleman, Baines, zabaleta, sagna, ivanovic have played many years regularly at top sides. Only a couple of those I'd say were consistently top class but every left back there gets in every team asides us today. Cole maybe would get ahead of robbo in his prime. Even the right backs, not fashionable but defend better than every current RB asides Azpilicueta and jury still out on AWB. If bassaka cost 50 imagine what maldini or thuram would be worth in today's market. 10 or 15 years ago when the prem had vidic and Ferdinand, Terry and carvalho, carragher and hyypia. Even guys like gallas, ledly king, Richard Dunne, kompany, Laursen and lescott at villa. Harry Maguire would be nowhere near as he's valued if that group were playing today. City could possibly have walker stones Maguire and let's just say if they went for chilwell as another example of vastly overrated. Your talking 220 million plus on an English back 4 who I'd value at nothing more than 100mil tops. Trent Gomez and robbo cost us 11mil. I don't get why some clubs aren't shopping abroad with the market in England at moment. United spurs arsenal and city will all have to spend big money this summer on at least 1 and likely 2 first team defenders and in this market I'm glad we did our work last summer.

12.) 04 Jul 2019 16:48:12
I've seen nothing from Pogba that suggests he's cut out for the premier League, he should have stayed in Italy. Rashford is a forward who has never scored more than 10 league gials in a season (I know he's quite young) but has just - allegedly- signed a 250k per week contract, to me that's exactly what's wrong at United, lots of decent, but not great, players on vastly overinflated salaries. Wan Bissaka - not seen enough to comment really but he's got a big price tag there and that defence needed CBs first and foremost, his confidence will suffer if they don't replace Smalling/ Jones/ Lindelof with someone much better.

I'd take none of those players for Liverpool.



17 May 2019 20:13:36
Bristol City LB Lloyd Kelly seemes to do the rounds. I remember the Eds had him I his summary over names dropped, as a player who had been offered around by his agent who likes to cut corners. We like that to so it's a perfect fit. However do this rumour have any context? He deffintly tick some of the right boxes.

Kind regards.


1.) 18 May 2019 04:19:21
Would be a good signing for his versatility and HG quota. Good cover for Robbo and can play CB if needed.

2.) 18 May 2019 10:33:13
I find it odd that the reports are saying kelly would be cover for Moreno. As Kelly has mainly played cb for Bristol this season.

3.) 18 May 2019 11:33:05
He’s also 3rd choice for Bristol.

4.) 18 May 2019 12:05:09
He has mainly played left back at Bristol this season, he's played a small amount of games at cb. Lee Johnson has said he'll move him to centre back as he gets more experience if he's stays at bristol.

5.) 18 May 2019 13:28:23
He is also close to moving to Bournemouth for £13m.

6.) 18 May 2019 14:07:24
Jordz he hasn’t he has played predominantly LB, only played about 3 games CB.

I think if we are buying him for LB then it’s a kick in the teeth to Lewis, at least give him a chance to prove he can cut it at a higher level.

We don’t want to be showing to be blocking youth’s paths to the team. It will have a LT negative impact.

7.) 18 May 2019 16:27:33
Reports now that he’s signed for Bournemouth 🤷‍♀️.

8.) 18 May 2019 17:49:01
Wasn't Lloyd Kelly from our acadamy?

9.) 18 May 2019 18:50:00
@hsf, Lloyd Jones ( not kelly ) was fm our academy .

10.) 18 May 2019 22:47:31
Would have thought it strange for Lloyd Kelly to make a move to a big club to be a backup.

11.) 19 May 2019 12:30:25
Bournemouth has him now. Please scratch that off your list.

12.) 19 May 2019 16:28:22
@mkReds, ah yeah that's the one! I must have got Lloyd Jones and MArtin Kelly confused! xD.

13.) 19 May 2019 22:45:19
Lloyd Kelly looks to have a good future ahead of him, being able to play two positions very well, we might keep an eye on this very good young player .

14.) 20 May 2019 14:40:40
He will hopefully evolve (over time) into a similar pathway as Joe Gomez, a brilliant example of developing a talent. Good luck to Lloyd on his next chapter. Good business for City and good for him to challenge himself.

15.) 21 May 2019 23:06:43
Easy mistake that hsf : one has 2 surnames and the other has 2 first names 👍.



06 Jan 2019 00:15:34
A bit of rumours about turkish talent Abdulkadir Omür this evening. That's a new one.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 01:49:46
Seems a strange one to me, he looks like he's predominantly a central midfielder or right sided midfielder which in my opinion is low down on our priorities.

I see another rumour suggests we'll buy a replacement if Lallana leaves but it's not as though he's played a lot Lallana, it doesn't feel as though he needs replacing.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 14:43:12
I feel like Lallana will stay for now and leave in the summer. He won't need replacing in my opinion as we have Ox coming back soon.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 19:28:10
I would think that lallana will hang around for a medal at the e d of season.



23 Jul 2018 18:43:14
French journos claiming that Fekir has put in a transfer request. To be honest I don't see Fekir doing this to his childhood club, but ofcourse if Aulas leaves him no other choice to keep himself safe, it would make sense. On another note, he already agreed to let him leave like a month ago, if we had just stuck to our funs at that point, that would be no drama, even though I understand if the club would like the chance to reajust the payment if they infact did not know about the surgery.

Best regards


1.) 23 Jul 2018 19:07:47
I always stick to my funs. It’s the only way.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 19:20:14
Gerrard our in a transfer request for Liverpool. It happens unfortunately.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 19:30:46
Indeed. But it could have made the Alisson transfer implausible. I prefer how things have turned out.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 20:04:04
I reckon Fekir is Chelsea bound once the futures of Willian, Pedro and hazard are resolved.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 20:04:19
I recall one of the Eds wrote that buying one, would not have any effect on the other deal financially.

6.) 23 Jul 2018 20:28:56
All I see is the daily star saying this 🤔.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 22:32:34
@smedegaard what's the source of this transfer request? could you provide the link.

8.) 24 Jul 2018 11:27:32
Edwards V Aulas - Who will flinch first.

I think we have put enough groundwork in here for it to come off. The player wants to join us and we want him, maybe just maybe we get him now on our terms. I’m feeling confident.

9.) 24 Jul 2018 11:58:21
didnt gerrard do it to his boyhood club?



04 Jul 2018 21:44:35
I just read that Shaqiri is up for medical or even announcement tomorrow? Please, don't be true.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 22:10:19
I’ve seen the same, bit sceptical about it though, not my choice to be fair, to lazy a player with the system we play, until i hear it from the ed’s Ill ignore it.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:15:44
solanke or shakiri. i know who my moneys on to pull out a winner.

3.) 04 Jul 2018 23:15:16
Solanke'll do the business this year.1st year of real mens football last year. it'll have done him good.

4.) 04 Jul 2018 23:50:25
Shaqiri is confirmed to be having a medical.
He is being treated for a sty in his eyelid and has been recommended some oinkment.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 00:41:42
Why not? He’s no world beater but he will definitely improve our squad.

6.) 05 Jul 2018 00:37:25
Do you really think that Klopp would allow a lazy player in his team? I don't think so!

7.) 05 Jul 2018 04:44:06
If it’s true Klopp wants him and he signs, it’s a signing I’ll support as he tends to get the best out of players and most of Klopps signings have turned out well. I’m sure it’s a signing he’s researched and a player he thinks he can get the best out of.

8.) 05 Jul 2018 06:02:30
He was kinda good in some of the WC games though. But I don't know. Maybe he can turn out to be another Mane; changed attitude after joining. Who knows.

9.) 05 Jul 2018 07:56:15
Maybe it’s Shakira and Pique as a package deal?

Shore up the defence and then have a party afterwards?

10.) 05 Jul 2018 07:44:02
Ed1/ 2 do you know of any truth to this rumour? I usually wouldn't bother you with such questions but this is somewhat concerning. I hope to god we don't sign Shaqiri, I can't believe some people are supporting the idea of it!

BB sorry mate but how would he improve our squad? I'd just like your take on that? because in my opinion he brings nothing, we've got youngsters more capable then that lump of lard.

{Ed002's Note - From the perspective of Salah staying and getting affordable cover for the right and centre the I would say that Xherdan Shaqiri is a likely option for Liverpool. If Salah had of managed to get his desired move, then the money would have been there for the Ousmane Dembele priced player many seem to expect. Personally I am slightly uncomfortable due to couple of reasons and would likely look to an alternate solution. And I would deal with the more pressing issue of the missing AM player first - go and pay the money for Fekir or find someone else. In terms of cover for these positions, Mino Raiola will soon be knocking on the door of a few Premier League clubs with his deal of the week, Hachim Mastour. Perhaps if Liverpool could figure out how to keep his head clear he would be an interesting option. Regardless, I would not discount Shaqiri.}

11.) 05 Jul 2018 08:43:23
Thank you very much for that info Ed2, much appreciated. Have a good day mate.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

12.) 05 Jul 2018 09:17:32
Thank you ed. First time (I think) you have suggested Shaqiri might be an option. Appreciate your update. Im going to google Hachim mastour now lol.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 09:24:51
Wow, that's a great update, thank you Ed002.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 09:41:59
Much appreciated for the info ed. Big emre mate, I hope you are right about Solanke but I’m wary he didn’t get enough time last season to really develop his game. Personally would like to see him get a really good loan. As of now, I’d like to see if Origi can do anything to regain the form he had before Everton got in the way. He didn’t have a great season out on loan but sure that’s nothing new to him. As for Shaqiri, disappointing if true. Have no idea why people rate him he hasn’t improved since he stood out at the youth World Cup. As for Mastour, really hated his celebration in Pro Evo 15, that’s about the last time I heard about him. Is he a free agent ed2 or is he still with Milan?

{Ed002's Note - Mastour is a free agent, but Liverpool has not shown any interest (nor has anyone else - hence the reason he is to be offered around).

15.) 05 Jul 2018 09:57:05
Cheers for the reply ed.

16.) 05 Jul 2018 10:10:11
Good signing at a low price, international experience and good to come of the bench.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 10:16:12
Shaqiri drops a couple kilo of muscle and Klopp gets his head sorted to turn him into a team player, I think he would be a good signing along with Maguire, ha, my top pick for CB, think he will go well with Van D.

18.) 05 Jul 2018 10:23:38
Sorry but from what I've heard an this is nothing solid salah had no desire to leave the club it's his agent trying it on and thinking of his own bank account. I have also heard salah isn't happy with the so called want away rumours.
YNWA 96.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly what happened since before Christmas.}

19.) 05 Jul 2018 11:13:20
Shaqiri won't get in team if he lazy or not fit simple sure klopp will sort him.

20.) 05 Jul 2018 11:32:47
Cheers ed02.

21.) 07 Jul 2018 20:12:01
Ed002, just asking after your post above. Does that mean you see Fekir or a AM similar to his quality coming and Shaqiri or someone similar to cover the wings? Is anyone else likely to arrive after that?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer “likely” questions.}

I wonder if Naby have had the chance to have his work permit sorted while of on vacation. Would be great to have him fully available for the coming season.


{Ed002's Note - He has to take and pass a test. Liverpool have already asked for an extension.}

1.) 20 Jul 2019 18:34:07
Must be hard to learn English when your surrounded by scousers 😂.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 18:50:11
May I ask what would happen if the extension were declined, which I expect it wouldnt? Is it like a temporary work permit?

{Ed002's Note - He would not be able to play until he passes the exam.}



15 Jul 2019 19:16:13
Happy monday, Ed's. Any known progress to the Liverpool transfer window? The possible outgoings of Clyne and Woodburn, the possible interest in Nabil Fekir, Bruno Fernandes and Maxwel Cornet?

Everything seems to be a bit slagged in the world of football atm.

Kind regards.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any significant changes today.}



26 Jun 2019 22:15:38
Firgive me for I have sinned. Am I the only one starting to snoop around behind enemy lines to get my fix of transfer gossip? These last couple of windows have been very low on Liverpool related transfer info. I know radio silence was called upon after the VvD incident, but still. It used to be fun and exciting to follow the transfer window on the sideline. It's possible to find just a little more info on opponents rumour sites, and then at least I can see who we ain't getting. By now it really seems like we won't be doing much, and maybe that's a gpod thing after all. It just makes one hell of a dull window to get through. Thanks to the Eds for every little bit of info you share with us. That is very much appriciated!

Kind regards.


1.) 26 Jun 2019 22:40:07
I much prefer it the way we do it now.

2.) 27 Jun 2019 07:01:08
Nothing has changed in my opinion. I think that discovering this site just makes you stop reading and believing all the sh@t in the papers and on bbc gossip column.

3.) 27 Jun 2019 08:27:30
I think it's easy to forget how lucky we are at the moment NOT being involved in transfers. You see Wan-Bissaka going for 50m, Salah etc. valued at 150m+.

Some big transfers last year, all of which have worked out well (bar Keita perhaps) . I think Liverpool are right where they want to be, sitting on an incredible squad, which they could not buy today. Trent + Robbo together at market value would be 150m+, but they've cost 8m combined!

4.) 27 Jun 2019 13:56:23
Sturridge leaving, big wages. An attacker will be signed imo. Probably already someone in sight.

5.) 27 Jun 2019 20:02:28
I know I'm totally wasting my time with this post but. you don't need to ask why there's a lack of information about transfers, you should be asking why a team who have just won the champions League are not trying to kick on and bring in at least two top draw players to consolidate our position. If you don't move forward you go backward and the lack of players coming in is a massive concern and not just about winning trophies but what message this might send to the manager, who may think about his own future if he feels he isn't recieving the backing he deserves, I know the reasons why things aren't moving on major transfers and so do all of you but you can't say it on here, I'll be shocked if what I've said here is shown at all never mind what I'd like to say.

6.) 27 Jun 2019 20:47:59
It's still June no need to panic. What 2 "top draw" players do we need. There will be another face or 2 to arrive I'd expect but our squad is strong with just a couple of guys needed for depth. I can't pinpoint a weakness, last 18 months we addressed the problem areas and strengthened the spine with new keeper, CB, and DM. We spent big money to get the best we could., we have a young group that can achieve success for next few years with the right management. Absolutely no need for 2 big expensive signings. Man city last summer only signed one player as pep was happy with his team, they won the treble this year,

We got 97 points and are European champions, these players have proved they are good enough, replace the dead wood with better quality, I'm more than happy with the current choices being made.

Im not aware of the issues you claim you can't speak of? ?

7.) 27 Jun 2019 21:35:33
Waro is absolutely right, teams should never stand still. 1 or 2 first team players should be brought in to improve us further and not stagnate.
That said, it is only June so plenty of time for business yet. Not sure of the reasons you speak of Waro, in regards to transfers.

Are you saying that the owners only buy big when they sell big, meaning we only bought Van Dijk and Alisson because Coutinho money paid for them. Therefore you think we will not be making a significant signing.

8.) 27 Jun 2019 22:13:38
I get the idea but standing still doesn't necessarily mean a lack of big transfers. Our strongest back 5 has Trent and Joe in early 20s, robbo still young and VVD and allison only hitting their peak. Our front 3 continue to blow teams away, keita can only improve and OX will be like a new signing. Brewster can't offer any less than sturridge did, Moreno offered nothing, fab, keita, ox all 24/ 25, hendo, gini and Milner with the experience, we have a nice young team, focus on growing what we have instead, . We can strengthen without marquee arrivals. Our squad is already stronger with Gomez OX and Brewster.

We're not standing still at all, far from it, we're operating very wisely I think. Maybe 2 more young hungry players to come in unless they're are major outgoings but why the need to spend big on players with first team promises, .

I get what ye mean but can you explain where the areas of the first team need strengthening? Without changing our style of play largely, I actually think Bruno F would suit us in midfield but with Ox and keita to contribute we are already much improved in advanced midfield.

9.) 27 Jun 2019 23:31:11
Har, I do not think Liverpool are standing still as it is far too early to be saying we are not signing players. I was more interested in why Waro is convinced Liverpool won't be signing anyone.

Apart from a decent wingback to compete with Robertson, I would like a top class attacker/ forward who can offer genuine competition to the front 3. I think Liverpool were very lucky last season with injuries and if 2 of our forwards got injured we will struggle.
Brewster is only 17 and coming back off a long term injury and I am not convinced Origi all round game is good enough.
I appreciate that finding the right attacking player is a tough job. We have heard Brandt, Fekir, Pepe and Fernandez mentioned already this Summer. So 2 signings is enough for me this season.

10.) 28 Jun 2019 01:38:33
Yes greenflash I'd agree those 2 positions would be the ones needing a bit of strength in depth.

Im also curious of waros statement of some big issue that we all apparently know of, . Im certainly ignorant to this info, have no clue.

Why can't you talk of this sensitive issue if it's already seemingly common knowledge?

A lot of rumours about interest in Timo Werner popping up today, after some german paper brought our name up as one of many suitors. Properly just the normal german manager plus german player add-up, but I would love this to be real. Pulisic, Werner or De Ligt. Any of these would make a brilliant signing for the club IMO.


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 21 Dec 2018 15:44:25
Isn't De Ligt off to Barca?

{Ed002's Note - There are several clubs showing an interest notably Barcelona and Juventus - and Ajax are open to a deal with either, particularly if they can get a Juventus player as part of a deal.}

2.) 22 Dec 2018 01:59:24
We’ve got Joe Gomez 👍.

I think it was all just wishful thinking. By all accounts it doesn't look like we're in for any player of that caliber this window. All reporters saying 20m to non founds earmarked for investment for the summer, and I can't see us strengthen the first team for that amount. A couple of good talents for the u-teams would be nice though.

Odd thing Liverpool would be spending valuable time scouting a player, they don't have the need for then.


{Ed001's Note - why would that be odd? Teams have to scout players because you never know when you might need one. Illness or injury can end a player's career at any moment, for example.}

Just for curiosity, would he be cheaper or more expensive for a english side?

Who do you think would make the best fit for Liverpool in theory. Fekir og Fernandez?


{Ed002's Note - More expensive. Fernandes would be a far better fix.}

Some days ago is read the overview from Ed02 and he mentioned that hard work was put into completing a move for Felix to a club which aas not Liverpool. My guess is that is a spanish side.

Even though Cornet and Danjuma are both exciting young players, none of them really aren't attacking midfielder, or? What are the chances we just give Wilson and Woodburn a go for AM and wide coverage this season?


{Ed002's Note - Cornet can certainly play as an attacking midfield and both can play on either wing. Ben Woodburn will not be at the club next season - and the club over priced Wilson blocking any sale and will take a look at him in pre-season - but they seem happy to move him on.}

I have to ask you the cheeky question then Ed002. Who is the better option, the club has interest in? Im really running low on names, who can cover for both attacking mid, wings and forward, would come at a low-risk cost and furthermore not demand a starting spot. Sounds like an interesting player.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before about the players the club has shown an interest in such as Cornet and Fekir - but everyone has convinced themselves Mbappe, Pepe, Dybala et al are joining they have no interest in them.}
