Eds we are constantly linked to vvd although what i read on here, that seems very unlikley. Have we ever shown interest in Ake of chelsea? i've been very impressed with him when i've seen him and with gomez could make a good young partnership. just my thoughts. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown interest in Ake Stevie.}

1.) 28 May 2017 14:44:41
Do you think there's a decent chance of this one happening Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Should have said "not" - there is no chance whatsoever.}

2.) 28 May 2017 16:34:33
Brutal haha.

3.) 28 May 2017 17:50:15
Ok ed thanks.



13 May 2017 08:58:29
Ed02 if i can ask you about reports linking us with bertrand again- yiu were very strong on him when he left chelsea- anything in the rumours? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I think he would be a great choice Stevie but I am not aware of interest being shown by Liverpool at this time. He would however be a far better solution at this level compared to untried youngsters.}

1.) 13 May 2017 10:14:18
Thanks ed - agreed with you when he was available last time agree with you again now. Any new links ed? Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - There is an update in respect of Luan following a representative of Luan having said that the player has refused to sign a new contract in order to be able to force a move to England where he will get the wages he deserves - which is rather ironic as an offer from China at the end of 2015 failed due to significant wage demands from the player's representatives - who I would advise clubs to be very wary of, particularly as the player has complex thir party ownership with his agents and various others (not identified) owning nearly 35% of the player's economic rights. If Liverpool now want to push ahead with a transfer that needs to be addressed first as they have only recently been trying to prove no wrong-doing in the transfer or another player and will not want to be embroiled in any potential further issues.

2.) 13 May 2017 10:41:20
How come 3rd party ownership is acceptble in some leagues but not others? Are FIFA trying to get a consistent approach?

3.) 13 May 2017 10:48:40
They have done what they can to outlaw it but in some countries clubs are dependent on third party ownership to survive - and they have no sources of funds to buy the player rights themselves.}

4.) 13 May 2017 11:20:35
Is this in reference to firmino ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

5.) 13 May 2017 11:40:52
Sorry ed I understand its a complexed situation. We do have a certain level of interest then? Is he a Striker?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, yes.}

6.) 13 May 2017 15:20:33
Cheers ed for the replies.



01 May 2017 13:21:33
Eds any interest still remaining in durmisi real betis left back? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to his club or his agent from Liverpool and generally don't know much about Riza Durmisi although the press has asked him about the interest of Liverpool - of which he said it would be nice but knows nothing of it and is happy where he is. He moved to Real Betis last summer after no interest was shown by Dutch or German sides and the interest of Reading was rebuffed. He is a left wing back - and to the best of my knowledge Real Betis has no interest in selling.}

1.) 01 May 2017 15:36:35
Thanks ed thought id seen somewhere we'd shown interest. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I know he was asked about it in January but I am not aware of any approach - nor was he then.}

2.) 01 May 2017 16:05:38
Ok ed thanks for replies.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Stevie.}



22 Apr 2017 01:41:12
Eds seen a rumour we are in for robertson of hill city any truth? Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - we had a look at him a couple of seasons ago, when they were in the Prem last time around, not aware of any fresh interest though.}

1.) 22 Apr 2017 07:56:49
Please don't p*ss about with the left back position. Just go buy Sessengon from Fulham and develop him to cover that position from day 1 and for the next ten years.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 08:58:10
You heard him ed01 stop pissing about and sign sessegnon.

{Ed001's Note - on it now!}

3.) 22 Apr 2017 10:58:16
I think Robertson would be a good addition to the team . He's made his way to the Premier League the hard way pretty sure he wad released by Celtic as a youth then ended up part-time at Queens Park even working for the Hampden Park box office before being signed by Dundee United where his performances led to being signed by Hull. Great attitude, still young enough to become better, tactically astute and has good delivery from the left side . It annoys me a lot of people on social media sneering at the possibility of this move probably because he doesn't have an exotic surname, but for me I'd be chuffed if Robertson signed for us . A hungry Premiership ready young International natural left back who would understand what playing for Liverpool is all about.

4.) 22 Apr 2017 11:45:12
Ed01, I'm sure I've seen you say that you thought Sessegnon could go straight into our first team - do you think that's such a good idea given that everyone else thinks our defence is still inadequate? I mean if we had a superb back line then he may be able to slot straight in with the others covering his lack of experience however I'm not sure we have that at the moment so he may flounder with being so young.

{Ed001's Note - he is good enough to improve our back line, his lack of experience is not really an issue, the rest there have plenty.}

5.) 22 Apr 2017 12:21:42
Robertson reminds me of Steve Finnan, which is no bad thing as he was a quality footballer.

6.) 22 Apr 2017 12:28:11
But what about Sessegnon not being able to train full time? And is'nt he still going to school? That would probably mean him not training full time and maybe even missing some crunch games for us. Relying on a 17 year old no matter how good to be first choice is a very dangerous gamble.

{Ed001's Note - he can train plenty, he is 17 in the summer, he will be able to do his schooling around away games. He will be in college, technically, not school, from next year.}

7.) 22 Apr 2017 13:37:06
Hi Ed just been reading that we've been linked with Benzema and Lacazette for me it has to be Lacazette 2 reasons one he is younger and the other and for me more important Benzema's baggage i refer to his blackmailing of a fellow French footballer what do you think thanx scouser phil.

{Ed001's Note - I would avoid Benzema like the plague, the blackmail incident is the tip of a very nasty iceberg of involvement with gangs in his hometown. He is always in trouble off the pitch.}

8.) 22 Apr 2017 13:54:53
Is there really interest in Lacazette? What happens to Origi then? Not sure he would be too happy being 3rd choice CF.

9.) 22 Apr 2017 17:40:18
Ed 1 just out of interest what would be your perfect summer signing wise ins and outs?

{Ed001's Note - no idea mate. I haven't really given it much thought. Just so long as we improve the team I will be happy, particularly the fullbacks.}

10.) 22 Apr 2017 18:11:45
Would you like another rb or just see Trent given more of a chance.

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on how the lad develops. Right now he should be given more of a chance, but I feel he will end up in midfield long term, so we need a rb for me.}

11.) 22 Apr 2017 20:09:11
Funny you say that ed I think he will play on the right side of midfield tomorrow.

{Ed001's Note - certainly a possibility.}

12.) 22 Apr 2017 23:36:00
I'd be content to see a back line next season of.


Sessangon. Lovren Matip Alexander Arnold

Although I see improvement in Mignolet so may see him retain his place longer, depending on rest of this season.

Still it's only a if that Sessangon will be signed, not even sure Fulham would sell or we would pay asking price.

13.) 23 Apr 2017 11:18:21
I forgot to add the other youngster I'd really like us to sign early on in window with Sessenogn would be Brandt. I think these two would really flourish under Klopp and both in my opinion could play from the off in the first team. Maybe more so Sessenogn than Brandt. I think both players are attainable for us and if we got champions league that would help us also.

14.) 23 Apr 2017 12:37:59
Any player who can improve the back line should be considered regardless of age.

We play much better when we have a high defensive line to really squeeze the opposition into making a mistake. therefore our defenders need pace as there is a lot of space left behind the high line.

I think this is why Klaven and Lucas struggled and so did the results as the team unit had to play a lot deeper. It also reduced the attacking threat of the team.

15.) 23 Apr 2017 13:36:09
I'd be happy with sessegnon, has about as much experience as Milner left back and he's been out best full back! If also agree with Alexander Arnold, but like to see a top organiser at CB, help the young ones out! Matip starts with him, lovren and Gomez as back up.
Ideally I'd add a winger for competition, wouldn't see the need for a striker, even if sturridge does go, firmino and origi can play there, and if the new winger is adaptable, hoepfully can cover too if desperate!

16.) 25 Apr 2017 01:24:47
Lovren was woeful at the weekend

He was pulled out of position.

He put so much slice on one clearance that defied the laws of physics.

His distribution is poor and concentration non existent.

Yup you guessed it! we are negotiating a new long term contract for him.

You couldn't make it up.

We're as well to bring back djimi Traeore.



15 Apr 2017 01:09:36
Kolsaniac has joined aresnal! The same reports on bbc say ww have put van dijk at the top of our list and we want naby keita. we are also interested in jose giminez. don't know how true any of it is.


1.) 15 Apr 2017 07:42:21
Have found BBC to be a cobbled together bunch of stories from rest of media, including this site at times. The quality seems to depend on hiw quiet their "sources" are and how many old stories they have to regurgitate to fill space.

2.) 15 Apr 2017 10:33:57
If we signed VVD and Giminez then Lovren, Sakho and Klavan would need to be moved on.

VVD would also become an expensive back up though because there is no chance he starts over Matip and Giminez. He is barely ahead of Joe Gomez in my opinion.

This VVD rumour just won't go away though, so I guess I need to sit on my reservations. Maybe he will learn some positional sense watching from the sidelines for 3 months!

3.) 15 Apr 2017 11:41:53
If we pay 50 million he's not going to be on the bench. We won't have a chance if city or chelsea want him anyway. Cheers.

4.) 15 Apr 2017 13:26:12
Not if we play 3 at the back formation.

5.) 15 Apr 2017 16:56:22
VVD only barely ahead of Gomez? I think you need to think that one a little more MK.

No chance of us signing Gimenez, and if he signed, he would be behind VVD, I can assure you.

6.) 15 Apr 2017 18:49:52
No doubt he'd be first choice when he first signed AG. Even Liverpool aren't mad enough to spend £50m on a player they see as a reserve. But within a year the pecking order would change in my opinion. I would genuinely feel more comfortable with Gomez at the back than VVD! He'd probably be worse initially but he has far more potential ability. I just think VVD would end up getting dropped when the club realise Skrtel had more positional awareness! As I say though it is only my opinion.

7.) 15 Apr 2017 21:59:37
I didn't say both vvd and jimenez. The bbc said we are interested in both.

8.) 15 Apr 2017 22:48:41
I suppose we can have more reasoned discussions if VVD signs, but as it stands right now, I think he is certainly more ready for first team opportunities than Gomez, who is still not fully recovered let's not forget.

9.) 18 Apr 2017 19:43:27
UI would take Jimenez ocver VVD anyday. Ther guy is simply not good enough and gets dragged out of position at will.

23 Jun 2017 19:06:02
Eds reds. Re left back. Ghoulam napoli. i haven't really seen him play. Is he good enough? As i've previously saud i would have bertrand all day, but as there doesn't seem to be interest who do you favour realisticaly?


1.) 23 Jun 2017 22:09:51
Never seen him play, MK takes in Serie A as does F, F&F.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 09:11:36
Seen Ghoulam play since his days at St. Etienne, with Napoli and with the Algerian national team. He is a solid LB who has a quality left foot (10 assists last season says it all, really) and would be great with us attacking wise. But his defending is very suspect. However, he is better defensively and offensively than Moreno but that is not saying much either. He would be great in our system provided his defending can be worked on or our system in midfield can help mitigate this defeciency.



10 Jun 2017 08:33:22
Ed02 i still think your correct re our left side - bertrand and brandt. I am very pleased with solankie hope he gets Chance s with grugic and gomez, ojo.


{Ed002's Note - Solanke is a player who everyone thinks highly of and could prove to be a greart buy.}

1.) 10 Jun 2017 08:58:52
Christ - a positive post! I'll do a screenshot to get through the next few weeks.

2.) 10 Jun 2017 09:36:41
A couple of my mates are season ticket holders at the Bridge and they rate Solanke extremely highly. Both were really disappointed when he was sold.

3.) 10 Jun 2017 09:36:51
Solanke looks very versatile to me - big, physical and able to hold the ball up well, but also with reasonable pace, good movement and a poachers instinct. I hope he gets given a real chance in the cups and the odd PL game perhaps.

4.) 10 Jun 2017 12:56:44
I hopw he takes his chances.

5.) 10 Jun 2017 09:00:21
ED002. don't you dare get my hopes up on Solanke. I was a big fan of his before, now I'm going to think he is the best youngster to have ever existed :P.



02 Jun 2017 01:38:43
Eds is it possible vvd being wanted is to play centre of lovren and matip in a 3? As luiz does for chelsea?


{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea.}



23 May 2017 08:45:05
Eds reds. Through different things i haven't been able to get to anfield this season. I haven't seen the defence live, where yiu can watch them without the ball etc.
Why are people saying clynes gone etc yet we - apperently- are not going to sign a cb. Is lovren good enough? When i watch him he looks full of mistakes. can't undersrand the difference.


{Ed001's Note - Lovren has good and bad games, on a good day he is excellent, on a bad day he is awful. I would prefer to see Gomez take the spot to be honest.}

1.) 23 May 2017 09:21:12
Listened to the shark pod ed001 and have to say I'm still slightly concerned with our plans for defence.

I agree with you regarding Gomez taking Lovren's spot but as we know, players get injured and we could be back to a lovren / klavan partnership.

Lovren made a couple of glaring errors on Sunday, in the first half, it could have been a penalty and a red card and twice one of their forwards ( can't remember his name) got himself goal side of lovren and should have scored.

{Ed001's Note - we can't do everything in one summer mate. Fullbacks are the glaring weakness, they have to be priority for this window.}

2.) 23 May 2017 09:54:07
We can't afford to have 2 inconsistent CBs
Need to get rid of one of Klavan or Lovren as we can't rely on them to perform well every time.

3.) 23 May 2017 10:02:17
Unless the centre back coming in as a sure fire winner, I actually think keeping consistency with who we have is better van establishing do partnerships as well as new fullbacks.

4.) 23 May 2017 10:13:37
As ed says we can't do everything in one window, quality over quantity and let's push on.

The only thing I would do is keep clyne for another season and look for a CB instead.

5.) 23 May 2017 10:45:32
I think it's a little unfair to criticise the defence this year, it's been near constant change. I'd like to see how they perform when its the same back 4 every week without changing then make a judgement.

6.) 23 May 2017 12:47:01
True Nevada but going off the injury records this season it doesn't you with hope that they will play together every week.

7.) 23 May 2017 14:10:18
Thanks ed1 so you think gomez is ready? I hope so. Hoping to see far more of him and grujic. I would go for karius in goal still very confused on the full backs.

{Ed001's Note - the only way to find out if Gomez is ready is to try him.}

8.) 23 May 2017 15:34:34
Lovren is quite simply awful, constantly charging out from the back to win a header further up the pitch leaving a gaping hole in the middle of our defence. Look at the penalty incident on Sunday the lad runs off him while he's ball watching, he could of cost us champions league football with his incompetence. Stunned he was given a new contract and pay rise.

9.) 23 May 2017 20:11:42
You and I on the same page Waro.
This is not just this season, he has been awful since he joined and this should have been already addressed imo .

It wasn't just the penalty incident, twice their forwards got goal side of him and should have scored on both occasions.



09 Apr 2017 10:17:43
Eds is grujic fit enough now? Would love to see him play a major part of a game especially with the injuries.


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 09 Apr 2017 13:19:07
Cheers ed.

Ed1 on the fitness. Its true chelsea players are worked just as hard as lfc lads if not harder so what's the difference? Why so few injuries for them and so many for us? Thanks for replies and time.


{Ed001's Note - yes it is true. A lot of it comes down to basic endurance. Lallana has had to build up his fitness gradually, for instance, as he was always known for fading in matches. I just think a lot of our players lack stamina. That can take a long time to build, but it has been shown that high intensity training helps reduce injuries, so maybe we were not pushing our players hard enough due to the amount of games we played?}
