Good afternoon Ed's and reds.

I very rarely post rumours as I don't have many sources.

However, I have just been confidently told that Aaron Creswell will be a Liverpool player in the summer. Do you know if there is any truth in this?



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool and West Ham agreeing the transfer of Aaron Creswell this summer.}

1.) 28 Apr 2017 15:44:53
Ok thanks for the swift reply Ed.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 16:26:08
good player.

3.) 28 Apr 2017 17:25:55
That would make no sense to me.

4.) 28 Apr 2017 18:17:17
He's had shocking season, small upgrade on Milner.



28 Jul 2016 20:28:16
Evening Eds and Reds.

My pretty reliable source at Swansea has said that he has heard that both us and West Ham have enquired to Leeds about the possible sale of Charlie Taylor.

Any truth in this eds?

Cheers, YNWA.


{Ed001's Note - last I heard we hadn't, but since then he has made it known he wants to leave and turned down a new contract. So it is entirely possible.}

1.) 28 Jul 2016 22:50:47
How good is he Ed?

{Ed001's Note - not sure, only seen him a couple of times, but the Leeds fans on their site are happy to see him go, which is never a good sign!}

2.) 28 Jul 2016 23:46:15
Do you rate him Ed01? Other posters?

{Ed001's Note - not seen enough of him sorry.}

3.) 29 Jul 2016 05:18:15
Are the fans happy for him to go because of the money he would bring or because they don't rate him? There's a difference. I don't want Coutinho to go but if a mega Sterling type offer came in I would be happy for him to leave.

{Ed001's Note - he is in the final year of his contract, he won't bring much money. They are happy to see him go anyway.}

4.) 29 Jul 2016 08:01:05
Ed001 Do you believe about klopp saying our transfer business is over now (excluding the players going out) and klopp will stick with moreno and turn milner as backup fullback?

{Ed001's Note - nope, we are still trying to sign full backs.}

5.) 29 Jul 2016 08:16:55
Same old story.

We spend money on areas that aren't really a priority then the 1 area we needed more than anything (LB) we try and spend as little as possible.

We would have been better just keeping Smith.

6.) 29 Jul 2016 09:09:06
Can he play attacking midfield? 🤔.

7.) 29 Jul 2016 10:30:03
We not only need a LB but need backup too. Moreno has shown his lack of defensive ability all too often.

8.) 29 Jul 2016 12:38:56
The transfer windo does not close until the end of August. Plenty more suprises to come in the transfer market yet. Have patience. We will sign a LB before then pkus 1/ 2 more will leave.

9.) 29 Jul 2016 16:30:32
The internets says he can play as a full back or a left winger which immediately makes me think

RUN! Run as far away from this deal as possible and never look back 😄.

10.) 30 Jul 2016 12:21:13
Modern football sadly, apparently the first job of a full back is to be a winger and if they can't defend then that's a minor issue. Frustrates the life out of me.



06 May 2016 16:35:16
Hey Eds and Reds. Still buzzing from last night.

Now as you know from my lack of posts on the rumours page, my insider knowledge is evidently non-existing and I'll only post if I hear something.

Now I previously mentioned from my contact at the Swans that they are looking to take Joey Allen back this summer.

The same contact has also informed me that Swansea and Liverpool are 2 of 3 premiership clubs with concrete interest in Lukasz Teodorczyk, a polish striker playing in Ukraine. Now I had to look him up as I've never heard of him or seen him play. I was wondering if any of the Eds or reds had seen him or know much about the lad?

Keep the faith guys! YNWA.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any English interest in Teodorczyk at this time - last up it was Wigan, Sheffield United and Wolves but he moved to Dinamo Kyiv.}

1.) 06 May 2016 23:34:25
lol not going to happen.

2.) 07 May 2016 09:47:02
Sure he played and scored against Everton last season. Name rings a bell.



15 Aug 2015 08:49:34
Good Morning Ed's and Reds.

Unfortunately the only rumours I get from my source are Swansea City related.

He told me last night that the Swans have made tentative enquiries in to the possibility of taking Allen back to the Liberty Stadium but were told by us that he isn't for sale.

Not sure how reliable this is, just wondering if you had heard anything?


{Ed001's Note - I already mentioned there were talks a while back regarding him, back then we were considering selling him as Kovacic was possible. Now that has died, Allen is no longer available.}



22 Jun 2015 09:29:28
Hello Ed's and fellow readers.

Daily reader for so many years, but only ever post on the banter or other pages.

However, I have recieved some information on the weekend. A former coach I worked with in the local area is a life-long Swansea City fan who also does volunteer work for the club (Stewarding etc.). I text him stating how well I think Swansea are doing in the transfer market. When I asked him whether or not he thinks Tabanou will start at Left Back next season, he said yes as he's heard Neil Taylor is going to Liverpool.

How reliable this information is, I don't know. I just thought I'd pass this on as it's the first rumour I've had to post after about 5 years of visiting and reading this brilliant site.


{Ed001's Note - Rodgers loves Taylor for some unknown reason. Never understood it as he is a truly woeful player. The only reason Taylor never joined a while back was his long term injury.}

1.) 22 Jun 2015 10:23:24
If Taylor does join, it means BR is still in control of the transfer committee.

2.) 22 Jun 2015 10:55:26
This is a non-starter. Taylor signed a new contract with Swansea at the start of the month. Absolutely no chance of Taylor joining the reds

3.) 22 Jun 2015 11:08:02
guess rodgers wants the "welsh jordi alba" 😜

4.) 22 Jun 2015 12:27:17
There is nothing to suggest Taylor will be joining LFC. Tabanou has a wicked left foot, brilliant long range shooter/freekick taker.

5.) 22 Jun 2015 15:21:42
Like I said guys it was only a rumour passed on from a Swansea fan. I'm Welsh but personally I wouldn't want us to sign him as I don't think he's good enough.

6.) 22 Jun 2015 17:01:14
No no no taylor is nowhere near good enough davies was much better an he can't get a look in at spuds

7.) 22 Jun 2015 16:41:49
i always thought BR would go for Taylor , i used to watch him before he got injured and breaking his leg , he is better than enrique also he is better at defending than moreno so i would not be supprised if we do get him i posted ages ago that BR would go for Taylor

8.) 22 Jun 2015 20:57:13
He`s still a poor player and BR is obssessed with his former players who wind up to be opoor if borini 9altho not enuff chances) and Allen. If that is accurate, Taylor will be just be as poor

9.) 22 Jun 2015 22:53:13
I'm a swansea lad and to say Taylor is woeful is a bit harsh, he was a good player before he had that bad injury!!

My point previously about needing a natural holding midfielder seems to have been enhanced by yesterday's performance.

It's no coincidence that spurs and Chelsea, the top 2 from last season, had Wanyama/ Dier and Matic respectively and they went on to finish in the top 3 for least goals conceded.

With the way we bomb full backs on, we need natural protection.

Yes I don't think Lovren is good enough and Matip doesn't have enough about him, but any world class centre backs would be exposed in our current system.

A new CB and natural CDM for me is a must. Not another headless chicken in midfield!

Saying that, whoever we buy, if we set up like we do at set pieces, we're surely still going to concede.

I feel it's a mixture of more and better coaching needed with the addition of 2 key players in the positions I stated.


{Ed001's Note - you will never get an argument from me, if the full backs are going to get forward as they do, then a holding mid would help. It is not essential, if the players in the team were intelligent enough and given enough freedom to spot gaps developing, as one player goes forward and fill that gap. Sadly players are overcoached and robotic these days, so it seems a proper defensive mid is needed who just fills in gaps, as a normal mid never bothers.}

1.) 13 Aug 2017 12:10:48
I'd love a 2017 version of Didi in the team at the minute.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 12:24:08
The goals we conceded had nothing to do with the full backs bombing on.2 corners and a throw in.
Yesterday our defending set pieces showed Mignolets lack of command in his box. I now understand why he kept Ward and its he doesn't trust Migs or Karius.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 12:47:52
I wasn't after an rguement ed by the way, just to see if you understood my point and for your opinion on it. So thanks for that mate.

No fin way - if you think our goals conceded tally is just down to set pieces, you should watch again. Yes we defend them horribly, both coached badly and played badly as individuals, but our awful defensive record is not all down to set pieces.

{Ed001's Note - I have wanted us to sign Medel to fill that role for years mate. I think we have lacked bite since Hamann left.}

4.) 13 Aug 2017 12:58:52
OP, Ed is correct. Look at the second goal off a throw in. Can goes in to press but he gets bypassed. Instead of Hendo to drop into the space as cover in anticipation of Can not being able to get the ball, he goes in to press the other player instead. He gets caught out and there is where Moreno is exposed with Amrabat and Cleverley with Cleverley unmarked out wide. Neither Can nor Hendo try to track back and the whole defence are in 6's and 7's trying to cover the gaps both Can and Hendo left behind as there was an overload on Moreno's side. This is what the Ed is referring to.



01 Aug 2017 13:57:40

Unfortunately some don't realise that this site is all about opinions, however, I'm interested to hear yours on the LB situation.

You stated that Clichy was in the top 3 left backs for the last decade in the prem.

Can I ask who would be your other 2?

And who would miss out but may be in contention?



1.) 01 Aug 2017 14:06:46
Evra and Cole for me.

{Ed025's Note - have you never heard of...leighton baines?..

2.) 01 Aug 2017 14:16:32

3.) 01 Aug 2017 14:21:46
Are we talking about the leighton baines that has barely played football coz of being injured almost if not more than a certain mr. studge, who you constantly say has an attitude problem not an injury problem ed?

{Ed025's Note - studge has both im afraid waqas which is a shame as the guy is very talented, leighton has had a few injury problems recently but has been superb for almost a decade mate and along with cole has been one of the best L backs of his generation..

4.) 01 Aug 2017 14:24:26
Cole and Baines definitely.

{Ed025's Note - i agree EVO..

5.) 01 Aug 2017 14:53:56
Definitely Evra and Cole.
Baines would also have made the list if he played for a half decent team though.

{Ed025's Note - good answer..

6.) 01 Aug 2017 14:56:56
Evra and Cole as the first reply said. I don't think anyone else has come close to Evra, Cole and Clichy. United still haven't replaced Evra sufficiently and Chelsea had to use a right back (Azpilicueta) there at times. Liverpool haven't had a good left back since Riise left the club and he was only ever a decent player. Nothing special.

{Ed025's Note - gael and MK sitting in a tree....

7.) 01 Aug 2017 15:18:25
Clichy is barely good enough to play in the Prem, how is he one of the top three PL left backs of the past decade? Has to be Cole, Evra and (probably) Baines.

8.) 01 Aug 2017 15:14:49
Gael Clichy?

9.) 01 Aug 2017 15:23:08
seamus coleman :)

10.) 01 Aug 2017 15:45:02
Aurelio was a better left back then Rise MK, if he wasnt injured as much as he was. Evra and Cole I agree with Baines I don't think is in the same league as the those 2.

{Ed025's Note - the green eye of the little yellow god me thinks..

11.) 01 Aug 2017 16:08:32
Aly cissokho, Jon flanagan and Phil Neville for me.

{Ed001's Note - Baines was light years ahead of Evra, who was a lazy get that all the United fans wanted out for years before he left.}

12.) 01 Aug 2017 16:07:08
cole was on his own as the best left back followed by evra. baines was better than both on the ball but his lack of real pace stopped him from being right at the top of the game.

{Ed025's Note - baines created more chances than almost every midfielder or forward the season before last..

13.) 01 Aug 2017 16:54:42
Is have riise every day of the year over clichy.

14.) 01 Aug 2017 17:31:40
So is clichy there due to the lack of good left backs then?

15.) 01 Aug 2017 18:01:38
Basically Smp. To be one of the better left backs nowadays you just have to be average haha.

16.) 01 Aug 2017 20:40:40
Cole, Baines and (bit of a cheat as he only improved once moving forward Gareth Bale) Another mention ho is just outside the decade (2005) Graeme Le Saux.



31 Jul 2017 16:06:45
My opinion on Keita - we don't NEED him.

Personally, I think CM is where we definitely don't need to spend money. In fact, it's the one are I'm more than happy with in the squad.

I think a CB needs to be our priority along with a proper holding Defensive Midfielder.

Now I'd be happy for Can to be moulded in to that position properly, but I think our defence is left exposed too much on times and the presence of a proper DM holding in front of our cb's, anchoring our midfield 3 is what we need desperately.

We have plenty of go forward and ability in the rest of the midfielders, forwards and full backs, so I don't understand why we need another "box to box" player in Keita. We have phil, gini, hendo, lallana, grujic, can who can all fill the 2 spots above the DM I'm referring to.

I think we need someone who won't be flash, will just protect the cb's, cover across for the FB's and lay it off to phil and the other cm to work their magic. I'm not saying he is available or would come to us, but to explain what I think we need, think Matic of Chelsea/ Utd. Or for those who remember Hamann, a player of that mould.

A player in that position, along with a new CB will make a massive difference to our squad and help the balance.

Now I'm not saying I don't rate Keita, or think he isn't good enough etc. i just think we don't NEED him. If we were in a position where we don't need to buy for any position and were just looking for upgrades, then fair enough. Personally I would go for Gini next to Phil as he got 15 goals/ assists in his first season with us and will only get better for me.

Just my opinion of course.

What do you think ED01?


{Ed001's Note - while I understand what you are saying, Klopp does not play in a way that uses a holding mid.}

1.) 31 Jul 2017 20:43:57
The midfield 3 need to understand better how to play together and protect the defense as a unit.



27 Jun 2017 11:59:56
Good morning ED001.

I wanted to take you away from the repeated questions about VVD and Keita and ask for your opinion on 2 midfielders at the club when I was growing up and starting to understand the tactical side of football a lot more.

Firstly, Danny Murphy. How did you rate him as a player? He scored some cracking goals for us and in some big games, so do you think it was right of Rafa to move him on? I'm not for one minute saying he came close to lacing Alonso's boots, but would he not have been useful as a rotational option, or did he want to leave?

Secondly, one of the most underrated players of my era in my eyes, Didi. Absolutely loved the guy and personally think he would be brilliant for our system now protecting our fragile defence. Cool, calm, good on the ball, strong, tall and for me criminally underrated and made such a big difference in Istanbul when he came on. How did you rate him as a player and were both players good pro's off the field etc.?



{Ed001's Note - if I remember correctly, Murphy did not even know he was going until he was told to report there for a medical. He was not good enough though for us. He was an odd player, in his own half he was a complete liability and would give the ball away repeatedly. Get him in the opposition half and he was very good, especially on dead balls but he lacked the pace needed at the top end.

Hamann I loved. He was a fantastic player, though he could have done with giving up the cigarettes. Decent enough pro other than that, he would certainly work hard enough in training.}

1.) 27 Jun 2017 12:22:00
Thanks for your reply ED.

I loved Hamann and bearing in mind I was born early 90's, he would be in my all time Liverpool team hands down every time alongside Xabi.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 12:22:28
I never felt nervous when Danny Murphy was taking a penalty. Best penalty taker I have seen.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 12:56:31
For me it was Jimmy Case.
Now there was a player who gave absolutely everything.
500 quid well spent! (Yes, he cost five hundred quid! )

4.) 27 Jun 2017 12:43:21
Murphy will always have a place in my footballing heart for always, always, always scoring against manutd!



23 Jun 2017 17:39:19
Good afternoon ED01!

Hope you're well.

I'm sure you are sick of all this investigation talk about VVD, so I was wondering if there is any chance of us turning the tables on the Saints and get the FA to investigate them tapping up Pellegrino for over a decade? ;)


{Ed001's Note - got to be worth a go like. They are known for long term forward planning.....}

1.) 23 Jun 2017 19:31:17
Or seeing as they are trying to blame us for ex-player Aldo being a bit thick, maybe we can try and take them to Court over Le Tissier being a terrible soccer Saturday commentator?

Keita is a better player all round, but I think N'zonzi is more what we need for our midfield to free up the abundance of "box to box" players we already have.

You won't hear this much on this page, but I completely agree mate. People have very short memories when it comes to what our owners have done for us so far. Yes they are not perfect, but to say they don't spend any money is ridiculous. We have cleared a lot of debt, expanded the stadium brilliantly with potentially more to come, brought in a world class manager who won't be cheap and with that, have led us back in to champions league football.


{Ed025's Note - your preaching to the converted there smp, there are 16 other teams in the league who would bite your arm off to be in liverpools position right now yet im hearing such doom and gloom, when FSG took over from the chuckle brothers administration was knocking at the door and as far as i can see everything they have done has been positive, your not chelsea or man city and lets be honest who would want to be?, liverpool is a proper club and has proper values so be proud of that mate..
