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!!

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?



28 May 2017 10:54:00
Good morning Ed01.

A quick question, if he is a genuine target, why are we after Keita of RB Leipzig?

I might be wrong but from what I'm reading he sounds like a box to box midfielder.

But surely if Klopp reverts to his 4/ 3/ 3 we have Lallana, Can, Grujic, Gini, Hendo and Phil that can occupy those spaces along with Milner if we sign a left back.

I just don't get why we would spend so much money on an area I actually think is one of our strongest. Am I missing something here?

Is someone leaving? Is Phil not seen as playing in the centre long term but back out
on the left? Is hendo not going to get over his injuries?

I just think our money would be better spent elsewhere.

Hope all is well.



{Ed001's Note - they can occupy those spaces, but he offers something different and, the club believes, is better.}

1.) 28 May 2017 11:50:09
I don't understand all this negativity and doubt towards the Keita interest, its not our money we are spending and why wouldn't you want a potential world beater midfielder? We want to compete at the top and he could be exactly what we need.

I personally we believe we need a CB, CM, a forward and a LB and its unlikely we will be spending £50m+ on a forward or CB so why not increase the solidity of our side in midfield? We currently have: Lallana, Gini, Can, Coutinho, Grujic and Henderson (assuming Lucas leaves) and with regular fitness concerns for Hendo that leaves us with only Can as a solid defensive presence and Keita offers both brilliant attacking and defensive aspects to his game. We have European football once again and extra star quality and balance in our side can only be a benefit.

2.) 28 May 2017 12:20:37
Ive never seen him play but i can't see how he would justify the money at all. By the sounds of it, he is in the same mould as hendo and can, when surely we should be looking at a player more in the mould of lucas who we can actually trust when henderson is out.

3.) 28 May 2017 12:52:39
Anonymous Wolback, he is nothing like any of the midfielders you mentioned. Slightly similar style of play to Gini but more refined and loves driving forward with the ball at every opportunity he gets. A bit like Yaya Toure during his peak years.

4.) 28 May 2017 13:18:07
Why can't we jut give these guys a chance? They haven't even signed for the club yet. Half the time the board are getting criticised for not showing ambition and not spending enough, and now we've been linked with the likes of Mendy and Keita everyone is up in arms. It seems there is no pleasing some fans. It was the same when we bought Mane and Winjaldum.

5.) 28 May 2017 14:30:36
To be fair to the OP Razor, he didn't say he wouldn't be a good player, just thought it wasn't position we needed filling right now - and frankly I'd agree with him as Hendo and Can look very capable in deeper role and we have a wealth of options further forward.

I don't mind him joining as we should always be pleased to see top players join, but hope it's not at the expense of a few other positions where we clearly have players that aren't quite there.



05 Mar 2017 18:54:53
Good evening ED01.

If you get chance, I was just looking for your view on a past favourite of mine, Craig Bellamy.

Did you rate him as a player?

Im my opinion I felt he was criminally underrated, quick, direct and could score. A little raw on times but always gave his all. A little petulant off the pitch on times but could never fault his effort on it. If only Giggs had learnt from Bellamy's passion for his country, Wales could have made a summer competition sooner.

Cheers ed.


{Ed001's Note - as a player he was too petulant and in too much trouble until he grew up late in his career. Blisteringly fast, excellent workrate, good skill, good goalscorer, but just that temperament that held him back. Then he went out to Africa and he became a changed man. After that he was one of the best players in Europe. He stopped with the drinking binges etc and just dedicated himself to the job. Just a shame it happened so late as he would have been a legend for us but it wasn't until he left the first time that he changed.}

1.) 06 Mar 2017 06:06:51
I loved him in a red shirt. He's the type of player you love to have in your team but loathed when in the apposing team.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 09:29:03
Wouldn't mind him in la manga hitting a few of the slackers with golf clubs.

3.) 06 Mar 2017 21:45:59
Always loved Bellamy. Glad he turned his life around. As an African, I can tell you that Africa changes people.



02 Mar 2017 11:13:58
Good morning ED01,

This is not a dig in anyway, just really interested to get your opinion. I accept that although you have no problems with Klopp personally, you don't buy all the hype around him as a coach.

I know you don't like to give personal opinions etc and I know it's all in the past, but I'm really curious to hear your opinion on whether at the time of Rodgers' sacking, was Klopp the best Liverpool could have brought in? Or do you think that Rodgers shouldn't have even been sacked?



{Ed001's Note - are you sure you mean me and not Ed002? Only I made it plain at the time Klopp was the best available and that Rodgers should never have got the job in the first place.}

1.) 02 Mar 2017 11:56:43
Obligatory defence of Rodgers.

2.) 02 Mar 2017 13:35:10
The manager doesn't get free reign to spend whatever he likes.

3.) 02 Mar 2017 14:03:59
Sorry EDO1, yes I meant to send it to ED02, if he is around to give his opinion?


{Ed002's Note - This whole subject has been done to death - there is no point dragging it out again.}

4.) 02 Mar 2017 14:11:00
imo, we are no better under Klopp than we were with Rodgers.

5.) 02 Mar 2017 23:46:39
Ko lo, none of what you say is true so stop posting falsehoods and rewriting history. I'm sure you are still cheering him on after we got hammered by Stoke 6-1 in 2015. I don't know what is wrong with certain fans on here. When we were terrorizing teams this season and even last season, never heard a soul on here talk about BR and how it may have been wrong to sack him or compare his failed tenure here with Klopp's. Now that Klopp is struggling (as if a manager has never done that before), his apologists are now out in force, trying to create unrest in the fan base. Pathetic!

BR was a rank incompetent failure and Klopp took his so called hapless team to two finals (a European final to boot) in his first 8 months while BR was a failure in both his campaigns in Europe. We are 14 points better off than last season at the same stage and YES, he was rightly sacked as he had only 6 good months with us in 3.5 years. He will never be in Klopp's league no matter how many paper mache trophies he wins in the one team Sunday league called the SPL.

6.) 02 Mar 2017 23:31:49
I think Klopp is the right fit for Liverpool but he has had a steep learning curve about a full English season

I wonder was Mourinio ever approached or considered after his dismissal at Chelsea?

7.) 03 Mar 2017 01:50:32
Jose would be bottom of the list.

8.) 03 Mar 2017 03:04:22
Mourinho was fired after Klopp signed why would he have ever been considered?

9.) 03 Mar 2017 15:00:34
It would do my head in if we ever got Jose in as our manager, I just don't like him in any way shape or form, Klopp is our manager, so let's get behind him,
yes Klopp has made some very basic mistakes, still thinks our League is the same as in Germany, meaning he didn't factor in not having a two week winter break, and that the small squad would suffer big time, so hope he learns from this season, and we hit the ground running next season .

{Ed002's Note - Sounds like a post from last season.}

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..

You must have some time on your hands MK to watch pretty much every player in Europe and give detailed opinions on them.
