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!!



20 Apr 2015 00:53:43
Hey Ed!

Just wondering if there was any possibility we may go for Manuel Pellegrini?

He's worked under the DOF/Head coach style that FSG want to install, plays an attacking brand and looks like he'll be available this summer.

This is not me wanting this as you know I'm still a firm supporter of BR despite today's result, just thought it was one that had gone unmentioned so thought I'd throw it out there to see what response I'd get.

Cheers ed's.


{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware he is not under consideration.}

1.) 20 Apr 2015 12:41:08
Cheers Ed?

Do you think he would be a good option if BR was to go?

{Ed002's Note - Pellegrini will not be moving to Liverpool.}

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.



08 Jul 2016 00:17:42
Evening Eds and Reds,

I've just returned from an extremely tiring trip which to Lyon which began late on Tuesday night. I've had a long car journey to reflect on the Wales game. I don't slag my players off, club or country, however I will admit when I think someone is not good enough.

For all those on this crusade to keep Joe Allen, please stop. The lad is just not good enough for Liverpool if we want to progress. As I'm someone who lives less than 30 mins from where wee Joe was born, not many will want him to be a success at Anfield more than me.

However, when it comes to the big games, against more quality opposition, he just isn't good enough. He is worse than what we have? Not massively, but we should be looking to improve the squad, not 'do O.K'

He's still a hero in my eyes from a Welsh point of view, as they all are, but as a Liverpool fan, he has to go if there's good offers in for him.

Time to rest, ready for the long trip up to Tranmere tomorrow.

Together Stronger, YNWA.


1.) 08 Jul 2016 02:44:16
Good post mate. He's good and could get better. And he's had enough time to impress at Liverpool. But he's lack of pace, touch, and game awareness short sell his efforts. So not suitable for the current setup at LFC.

2.) 08 Jul 2016 07:35:10
He has had a great Euros and shown that he is good enough to stay at LFC.

He is a good squad player for us and whilst I don't think he will ever be first choice he can make an impact off the bench.

For Wales he got a little rash in the first 15 mins of games and whilst he didn't have the best of games against Portugal he was playing with a yellow card for 80 mins.

I say we keep Joe for another season. We don't have the depth in the squad. Pending any good offers for him!

3.) 08 Jul 2016 09:16:20
Too many midfield players at the moment. And the younger players need game time, ideally 2 players per position and youngsters coming in is more than enough.

And Joe should be playing at his age.

4.) 08 Jul 2016 09:30:31
I just don't see why Joe is getting the stick for Wales going out to Portugal.

Yes he mis-placed some passes.
Yes he got caught on the ball.

However, he kept on wanting the ball and kept on trying to make things happen.

Ledley was anonymous in terms of linking play, as was Andy King. Ramsey's movement wasnt available and James Collins cannot pass a ball out from defence.

Against good opposition you cannot have 1 midfield player trying to make it happen.

Yes, he's had better games but the whole team performance was flat and this is not down to Joe.



17 Jun 2016 08:02:38
Ed01, if you don't mind I was wondering if I could get your opinion on Jamie Redknapp as a player as I was discussing with a friend players who could have been better or even top class for us if they didn't have continuous injury problems, e. g Aurelio (loved him), Kewell, cisse even Sturridge and Flanno so far etc.

But JR played in a team, that although I was old enough to support, I wasn't old enough to understand the game tactically, yet I've seen highlights of him spraying passes and scoring some spectacular goals, so I was wondering how you rated him? Do you think he could have gone on to be a top player without the injuries?



{Ed001's Note - he was a fantastic passer of the ball but did not work hard enough for my liking, plus he had the ridiculous habit of dropping back onto the toes of the centre backs to take the ball and pass it out from there. If he had just stayed a few yards further forward, then his passes would have had more danger to them, but when you are passing from your own half, most of the time, while the opposition has had time to set up a defensive shape, you are going to lack incision.

It was definitely work rate and desire that was his main problem though. He had all the tools, he could tackle, shoot, cross, pass and hit a dead ball, but he just did not have the drive of a born winner. He was more interested in looking good and would often strut around like we were 5-0 up. When he did turn up and try though, he was fantastic.

A game that stands out for me, as to why Redknapp is so lacking but what could have been, is the second 4-3 against Newcastle. From the start, against a Dalglish-led Toon, he clearly had a point to prove, and he dominated the game as Liverpool strolled to a 3-0 lead. Then he decided the game was won and stopped working, allowing Newcastle to snatch 3 goals in the last 5 minutes. Luckily, in those days, we had God on our side to bail us out with a last ditch goal.}

1.) 17 Jun 2016 10:39:12
Cheers for the detailed reply Ed, much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - you are welcome mate. He could have been a legend, but he lacked the desire to work hard enough to make it. That probably explains the injuries as well, he was not working at quite the intensity required in training to toughen up his body to cope with actual matches. Similar to this red zone rubbish, if you are not pushed beyond your level, then you are almost certain to get injured when you are forced to do so in a match.}

2.) 17 Jun 2016 10:55:46
I was in the kop when Robbie got the winner! Great game,

{Ed001's Note - it was an amazing moment. My aunt and her family had left five minutes early and missed 4 goals!}

3.) 17 Jun 2016 11:06:12
I'd say I'm probably a similar age as you smplfc, I use to love redknapp, I remember going to the barbers as a youngster and asking for a hair cut like Jamie redknapp but I can't ever remember redknapp with the bowl haircut treatment.

I'm glad you agree Ed.

Listening to talksport and most of the callers that phone in, everyone seems to idolise Wilshere.

I really do not get all the fuss. But again like I said, I hope he is in the starting line up against us.

Can't some of you just give the lad some time,

De Gea was weak in the air when he first arrived but Fergie stuck by him and said he would be top class. Maybe we should stick by ours and if he gets anywhere near De Gea'a current level, we'll have a top GK.

Let's back our players and help build his confidence

Keep the faith! YNWA!

What do you make of Game of Thrones Ed?

As good as the critics seem to rate it?


{Ed001's Note - no idea, never read any thing from critics about it. It's ok, I just always forget to watch it and lose track as there are so many characters. With my memory, unless they play football they just don't stick in my mind, so I can never remember who is who.}
