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 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.}



22 Sep 2016 16:51:58
Hi Eds and reds.

I just wanted your opinion on something me and a few mates have been discussing this week.

Now before you jump on the wagon and starting pelting me saying it's never going to happen, I know, I just wanted to see if you guys thought it was a good idea or not.

90% (if not more) of fans get annoyed when international football puts a stop to club football for a week or so during the season, so why not do they like they do in rugby union and play games anyway. All they do is make sure the kick offs don't clash with the international game.

Yes a lot of first team players won't be there for some teams, but this then forces the clubs to give fringe and youth players a chance. It would also mean that these players will be likely to get more game time leading up to the international fixture list instead of just being all chucked together for the 1 or 2 games during the international break.

Most teams play friendlies with their fringe players during the break anyway, so it's a chance for them to prove themselves which they might not get during the normal season. It could prevent a fixture pile up in parts of the season too.

Again, I know it won't happen due to money etc. But I just wondered what you guys thought?


1.) 22 Sep 2016 17:51:16
Will be unfair on the teams with loads of internationals.
Some teams can have 15-20 internationals who would disappear.

2.) 22 Sep 2016 18:56:46
True Mikey, but essentially you'd be no more disadvantaged than the teams losing less players to international duty on the grounds that they're not good enough to be called up.

Would never happen as you say smplfc, we all want and pay to see our best players out there, but it wouldn't bother me too much. All the top teams would be affected equally. Works in Rugby.

3.) 22 Sep 2016 23:03:04
It's bad for both Rugby and Cricket, it undermines the club game. If football did it it would probably destroy international football. Players would go with the money.

4.) 23 Sep 2016 03:30:43
We would just end up with players staying at their clubs and international teams only having their 2nd choice players turn up.

5.) 23 Sep 2016 05:40:31
Maybe play the early stages of the league cup when there's the international matches? Most teams tend to play non regular starters for these matches anyway.

6.) 23 Sep 2016 09:41:47
Anything that potentially stops Rooney being picked for England in whatever form that is would be great! Hopefully man utd would make up Some reason why he couldn't play.

7.) 23 Sep 2016 11:47:56
It would never work because it would end up with a lot of players going for the money and retiring from international duty, as well as this it gives the lower teams in the league an unfair advantage. For example the likes of Liverpool, United, City, Chelsea and Arsenal would be virtually losing their entire matchday squad where as the likes of Hull and Burnley would be losing 1-2 players max. I doubt the TV companies would be happy with the lost revenue from double booked matches too and they pay an awful lot of money to the Premier League for TV rights.



15 Sep 2016 10:20:45
Dear fellow reds,

due to the nature of my employment, I am unable to get to games regularly, with my last game being Tranmere away in pre-season and Sevilla before that in Basel. However, I have been able to get time free for Derby away next week, but due to the criteria for ticket sales on the LFC site, I can't purchase one. Does anyone know where I can get or have a spare one?

Many thanks.





02 Sep 2016 07:51:15
Now that silly season is over, I'd like to share my view on it.

First of all thanks Ed's for the constant updates.

Secondly, I think it is an absolute disgrace and a sign of the world we live in that the media outlets were celebrating the achievement of clubs in the PL spending over 1bn this summer. Now I love football more than anything. I've travelled the world watching club and country and still plan on doing so. I get that the sport makes so much money, but the way it's bragged about, when there are so many more important things in the world that could be used to better effect with that likes sickens me.
Again I'm not saying ban transfers, or clubs making money and all that nonsense and I know a lot of clubs do a lot of charity work etc. I just don't like how Sky/ BBC etc. go about the transfer windows now, like its some massive event.
Thanks for a the updated Ed's, now that the window is over, let's get behind our team and manager for 1 season without constantly moaning!
Keep the faith, YNWA.


1.) 02 Sep 2016 08:37:43
Going to be honest, as I've got older I've become disillusioned with football. Mainly because of the money aspect. I loved it during the days of Fowler, Bergkamp, Zola, Cantona etc, going up to the "invincibles".

After that point I have gradually lost interest. Only a love for Liverpool that keeps me watching.

2.) 02 Sep 2016 09:42:27
That's the way of the world now and has been for a long long time pal, like yourself I don't agree with it.

3.) 02 Sep 2016 12:16:55
I agree with you Adam. Gone are the days when I used to watch any game of football just because it was on.

Liverpool aside, I don't watch any other games these days including finals and so called "huge fixtures". I also gave up on England a long time ago.

4.) 02 Sep 2016 18:32:00
Skill and talent traded for speed and fitness. Not many pure footballers left in the game.
