Can Ed002 shed some lights on fekir deal? If you felt that it will create hate then we understand it completely.


{Ed002's Note - This is the social media generation we are dealing with. It will get done when it is all concluded. If it is not all concluded it won't get done. I understand that Liverpool fans have constantly trolled the club's social media and that is really unacceptable - and I imagine Fekir's social media accounts will be taking a bashing now as well. My understanding last night was that the financial aspects were not finalised, and I said that lhere - I didn't keep it away from you all - that was how it was. I am not aware that anything has changed. It will continue to be work in progress. If Liverpool remain keen, then there is plenty of time to sort something out. If there is interest from elsewhere that matches the desires of the player and the club, then that is possible with plenty of the summer left. The trouble the Liverpool fans, seemingly uniquely, have is they believe the fat kid from Bolton and they get the Kleenex out and get their rocks off as soon as he says "done deal". The situation is very, very simple and no more or less than has been explained. There are no minute by minute updates to be had, although you can get those on Twitter or whatever.}

1.) 09 Jun 2018 20:16:21
Ed2 was correct once again!

2.) 09 Jun 2018 20:15:26
****ing loved your reply ed002. You are absolutely correct.

3.) 09 Jun 2018 20:19:45
Thanks ed002 for again clarifying the situation. I personally think this is lyon just trying to get more money out of us.
And if we can't get it done we will move on.

{Ed002's Note - Aulas will do the best that he can for Lyon - and frankly there is nothing wrong with that. You can build relationships with him and he will do what he sees as fair. If you are an English side he will want some of those English shillings you have so many of. If you screw him around you get the Gallic shrug - he is in a controlling position, why should he give you the bargain. How would Liverpool react to a £68.6M offer for Salah from Real Madrid - "well he hobbles a bit and he keeps holding his shoulder, and he whimpers like a pre-pubescent schoolgirl a lot, so we need a cheap deal".}

4.) 09 Jun 2018 20:22:31
With you all the way there ed 02 us Liverpool fans get way too invested an carried away with media I swear I don't believe anything til they wearing the jersey.

{Ed002's Note - Jersey? Cow or potato?}

5.) 09 Jun 2018 20:25:57
Thank you Ed002, appreciate the info. We are all very fortunate to have you and the other Eds providing us with such information.

6.) 09 Jun 2018 20:29:55
You’re right Ed. Things will happen if and when they happen.

7.) 09 Jun 2018 20:30:41
There you are folks. Ed002 has given us the info. Forget Twitter, Facebook and Graham Kelly ( who everyone seems to bow down to ) .

8.) 09 Jun 2018 20:31:06
Thanks Ed002 as usual the voice of reason.

9.) 09 Jun 2018 20:32:46
Just out of curiosity ed02, do you not in fact find it strange that Lyon would be so public about this/ their business? Why feel the need to issue a statement? They never announced that they were negotiating with LFC, so is it necessary to communicate this "ending of talks" publicly?
Liverpool haven't said anything, as well they shouldn't.
Kinda weird that by Lyon.

{Ed002's Note - Aulas has always been keen to say things to the press, and pretty much anyone who will listen. Who would have thought that the American President would be using Twitter to blurt out nonsense? I haven't seen him for perhaps three years but I would think he would love Twitter."

10.) 09 Jun 2018 20:40:19
sensible, rational reply ed02. It seems as though both parties are close to an agreement. Why these fans need to go on social media and get abusive over a transfer deal is beyond me. I have never been on twitter, clearly I am missing nothing.
I will just relax with a nice cool beer and see what happens. Hardly a life or death situation.

Thanks for the update ED02.

11.) 09 Jun 2018 21:01:04
Has anything happened since your reply ED?

Kidding 😁.

12.) 09 Jun 2018 20:44:52
I'm with you there Ed. If I was in Aulas position I'd be holding out trying to get the most I could, any businessman would/ should, I'd hope we'd be the same, can't blame the man for that. If we want the player enough we'll pay what they want. If not, we move on and they keep their player, it's as simple as it gets imo.

{Ed002's Note - It woas never going to be easy - and this has always been the case with OL.}

13.) 09 Jun 2018 20:47:05
Hahahaha the Liverpool football top sorry, I more of a Irish potatoe kind of guy an more partial too Devonshire cream.

{Ed002's Note - Do me a favour, Google Dan Quail and potatoe please. There will I am sure be a video.}

14.) 09 Jun 2018 20:50:15
What a legend Ed002 is! I'm just so wowed by your style! Take a bow, boss! We're really lucky to have you tell us as it always is!

15.) 09 Jun 2018 20:51:29
Sorry ed002, didn't mean to word it like i was whinging about it. Any selling club would want the best deal, if we are willing to pay great. If not we move on.

16.) 09 Jun 2018 21:02:37
Thank you very much for all the information you’ve given ed2. Let’s hope it eases the flow of desperate posts you are receiving. Obviously hope it happens. Would be a wonderful time for the club to do the deal right instead of messing around another club.

17.) 09 Jun 2018 21:10:45
So many people on here loosing their minds over a player they have never seen play or even heard of until recently lol.

18.) 09 Jun 2018 20:49:50
Cheers for your thoughts ed. Spot on as usual mate. Makes it sound very open still its just Aulas stating its over sounds quite final to us. Pinch of salt then?

19.) 09 Jun 2018 21:28:53
Mother Fekir, atleast the boxing on to cheer me up! Could see this coming, seemed to taking a long time and kind of strange the noise from their predefined, hopefully we continue to pursue the player and up the offer a bit YNWA.

20.) 09 Jun 2018 22:00:10
Ed, you are sparkys Owner aren't you, he speaks just like you ;)

{Ed002's Note - I taught him English.}

21.) 09 Jun 2018 22:01:29
Sky news just reported that fekir deal is now off.

22.) 09 Jun 2018 22:02:04
Dan Quayle potato, I remember that Ed002. How did he ever make it in politics? How did he ever leave the house unaided?

23.) 09 Jun 2018 23:47:49
Could anyone please clarify who ed02 means when he refers to a fat guy from bolton?

{Ed002's Note - “The Firm” on Twitter who I am repeatedly told by Liverpool fans is the only source who is ever correct. #WonderDogSparky, a little sweetie, has been banned by him for not giving him the personal gratification that many do. Sparky will be recruiting supports for his #The Farm (Fat Kid From Bolton) vs #WonderDogSparky (Artist, Racing Driver, Diplomat, Psychedelic Warlord and Great Lover) campaign.}

24.) 10 Jun 2018 00:13:20
The firm is a joke and always has been. Not looked at it for a while and don't plan on doing so anytime soon. In the Eds I trust.

I kind of don't want to look at #WonderDogSparky anymore though either. The Mrs saw the picture of him sat behind that chair, she didn't care about poor old bugger sparky, she was more bothered about the chair and wants one like that! Please no nice furniture in the future pics sparky, I'll end up bankrupt.

25.) 10 Jun 2018 01:51:37
Ed002 I think Salah should be worth twice the money for holding his shoulder, the wobbling, the dribbling and nutmegs and for scoring 40+ goals. Tell that to RM will you?!?

Thank you for putting the Fekir hysteria to rest. for now.

{Ed002's Note - And the crying must get the sympathy vote as well.}

26.) 09 Jun 2018 22:56:57
Hi Eds! Will Liverpool wait till the world cup ends and keep trying for Fekir, or will they start looking for alternative options? Thanks in advance!

27.) 10 Jun 2018 05:26:35
Hi Eds! From my own opinion, i think Liverpool fans get overhyped of this deal mainly because the way how Fabinho deal works out and the news whereby Fekir has passed his medical. After reading your view on this potential deal, I would like to ask whether undergoing medical before reaching an agreement between the two clubs is a way of how a potential transfer will go through?

{Ed001's Note - every deal is different.}

28.) 10 Jun 2018 08:11:08
Regarding this potential Fekir deal- Fekir passed his medical before agreement was reached and Ed0002 said financial aspects were not finalised. Therefore, I would like to ask Fekir passed his medical beforehand foe the sake of the upcoming World Cup, or it is due to news on the web where he undergo the medical after an agreement in an initial fee, just that Liverpool try to negotiate for a lower fee in the end?

{Ed001's Note - because of the World Cup a lot of stuff was done in advance so that he could just concentrate on playing for his country.}

29.) 10 Jun 2018 08:40:22
If an agreement was reached during the World Cup period, can both the clubs announced the deal? Due to medical was passed and interviews (leaked) was done beforehand.

{Ed001's Note - of course, that was the whole point of getting everything ready. Now he can just leave it all in the hands of his agents. I wouldn't hold my breath though. It could be done in seconds, linger on for months or never happen at all. May as well just relax and forget about it and hope for a pleasant surprise later.}

30.) 10 Jun 2018 09:07:21
Big thanks ED001 for your answer.
This has helps me clear up rumors floating on the web regarding this deal:
1)Fekir failed his medical
2)Initial fee was agreed and Fekir passed his medical, talks broken down as Liverpool try to lower the fee due to past injury concern.

31.) 10 Jun 2018 09:45:27
Eds if the fekir deal can't be concluded who, with your knowledge, would you say we'd try for?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know.}

32.) 10 Jun 2018 10:32:00
Rush to get everything sorted before the WC has backfired.

From a purely business perspective, this is not the way to do 60 million pound deals, anyway. Due diligence are the key words.

If Aulas wants to be difficult, he will be difficult. The player is contracted to Lyon - they hold the cards.

Important now for the club to act professionally. We have had enough problems with previous transfer fiascos (Southampton and Fulham come to mind) .

And let's hope the LFC trolls on twitter don't now go on to discredit the club, the way they have done in the past in their behavior the owner and his wife.

33.) 10 Jun 2018 07:04:19
Ed002 people ask if your Male or female.
I ask are you really a talking labradoodle?

34.) 10 Jun 2018 04:48:06
Thanks Ed002. So all these deals are nonsense. Now I can have good and calm Sunday.

35.) 10 Jun 2018 11:38:19
Only been on twitter once found the darwin awards they are pretty good.

36.) 10 Jun 2018 19:05:05
aussieMARK: WDS is the talking Labradoodle, Ed002 is a gentleman rodeo clown.



27 Dec 2017 18:03:24
Its official. confirmed in LFC website. VVD is LFC player.




02 Aug 2017 12:10:16
Hi ed01, I know everyone going gaga about Kent. I am not surprised either with his performance though. But what is the plan for Wilson? . Now it seems he is down the ladder behind Ojo and Kent.


{Ed001's Note - Ojo is likely to leave, either on loan or permanent, Wilson the same as things stand.}

1.) 02 Aug 2017 12:51:54
Ed01, what is the plan with Kent then? has he played himself into the first team plans?

{Ed001's Note - he has put himself in with a shot, yes.}

2.) 02 Aug 2017 16:57:48
I hope he has. Definitely been a good player during pre season, albeit it is preseason but I think he could fill in well when mane or Salah are missing.

3.) 02 Aug 2017 17:34:18
Not sure if Kent can play in different positions as it is too early but for some reason he resembles a junior Milner type player when he first came on the scene with Toons.

Let us see how he goes.


4.) 02 Aug 2017 18:31:27
He's done well but very young - I really hope we loan Ojo and Wilson to strong championship clubs, or if we sell we do so with a buyback clause. I feel we might be letting them go too early if we sell outright. Most important though is game time and ensuring they develop rather than stagnate in u23s.

I can see Woodburn being a Coutinho/ Llalana type player for us in the future and Ojo being a Mane type player.

5.) 03 Aug 2017 17:41:39
Kent was class. Sometime it's the youth who have the bottle to take on players and he had me out of my seat. Hope he gets a chance other than league cup. If he keeps showing that hunger I think he will go far. We have some excellent young players on the edge of first team now. Very exciting.



27 Aug 2013 12:43:32
Ed, Is there anything new with us or other teams about Lamella. Last I heard that we made a general enquiry about him from you(Ed 02). Is there anything to add?
P.S Have a happy journey ed . I think we will miss you for 2 days. This is the time we need you more. {Ed002's Note - Lamela will almost certainly complete a move to Spurs, subject to a work permit being granted, in the next couple of days.}


1.) Oh the joy of a Liverpool fan seeing other clubs strengthen their teams significantly whilst we do nothing and get linked to players not wanted by their clubs.

12 Jun 2018 19:04:17
Hi Ed just out of curiosity, can a player be bought and sold in same window? I know he can play maximum of two teams in one season. But buying and selling in one window?


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 22:43:18
Really, didn't know that, has it ever happened ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, often.}

2.) 13 Jun 2018 00:08:28
Benik Afobe has done it this week!

3.) 13 Jun 2018 00:41:22
Did'nt Afobe go feom Wolves to WBA just yesterday?



12 Jun 2018 07:43:15
Hi Ed001, I am going to bother you a lot from now onwards ;) . This regd Harry Wilson. Haven't watched full 90 mins of his play apart from highlights here and there. This is completely my point of view. Wilson from loan and his U23 playing style, I can get that he has good finishing techniques. My question is, can he be a good backup for firmino? He can be coached right for pressing and all round game play?


{Ed001's Note - impossible to say as I have never seen him play that kind of role. He certainly hasn't shown the workrate or desire needed.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 08:14:04
I've not seen anything of him in senior football other than highlights and a few cameos in preseason.

I did see a lot of him at youth level though and he would not suit the Firmino role at all. Firmino is one of the smartest and most selfless players in Europe. Maybe even the best false 9 to have ever played the game. We are blessed to have such a uniquely gifted player.

Wilson needs to prove he can be a good back up to Salah or Mane because he is very good when running at people and times his runs in behind very well. He is a goalscorer, but he won't press and he isn't good enough at holding up the play.

Firmino is a complete player. He scores, he creates, he wins the ball back, he is a target man, he runs the channels, he runs in behind, he drops deep, he has flair, he has tenacity etc. No other player in world football offers what Firmino offers, but Wilson is miles off being that complete as a forward.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 08:16:17
Work rate and desire is needed first for klopp to even think about him.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:31:21
If Wilson won't press and track back, then Klopp will show him the door. Scoring fancy goals won't cut it if the work rate and desire is not there. BUt the same applies for Shaqiri as well, who will need to start busting his gut if he joins. Klopp does not suffer fools or lazy players.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:03:07
And that IB is why I'd be very surprised if we actually got Shaqiri.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 10:03:57
Good Point Salah
but I will say this, Coutinho before he left was as lazy as hell in the last few months and quite a few posters still wanted him to stay.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 10:09:25
MK, I think klopp targets players with great pace on wings. Wilson isn't quickest by what I read. So it left firmino position. Wilson has great technique with goal scoring. Can he be transformed into another false 9 if solanke gets a loan deal. Yeah he isn't a target man but he can work on his pressing. He is young and can be coached right. But only if he put his mind and body into it.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 10:45:44
Harry Wilson isn’t a false 9, he’s a wide forward. Not Mane or Salah quick but not bad and movement and touch/ goal scoring is decent. If he can improve his defending and work rate I think he has a chance. I think he’ll be a better longer term prospect than Shaqiri who has the X factor but can disappear and has a poor attitude.



12 Jun 2018 03:46:00
If we are unable to land Alisson or Oblak which might be, then we should keep Karius and Ward. Need not to waste money on Butland. Between Burnley had good season and their defense looked top notch for a club which is expected to finish bottom half. How is Pope then Ed001? Is he good enough?


{Ed001's Note - no, he is a very good shot stopper but does not have any other qualities required. His distribution is dreadful.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:30:33
This is what MOTM and YouTube videos does. Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. I do have a player profile on him here if you want to read more.}

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:54:45
That's a good read Ed001. I know 26 isn't a big deal for a GK. But can he be coached to be a sweeper? Just curious. Can a player be coached now?

{Ed001's Note - he can't kick, so it would mean him making huge improvements that are unlikely at that age.}

3.) 12 Jun 2018 07:13:31
Just as a follow up Ed, would you think the technical attributes are easier to coach as compared to physical/ mental? Not just gk but players in general.

{Ed001's Note - no, physical are the easiest, you can work on that at almost any age and make improvements to a degree. Technique you really need to learn early to make major improvements.}

4.) 12 Jun 2018 08:28:01
Thing for me is that signing Pope would be repeating mistakes we’ve made in the past, ie signing a very average player off the back of one half decent season. Charlie Adams, El-Hadj Diouff, Stewart Downing, Jermaine Pennant to name a few.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:53
Agree with Ed001. I also said the same thing about Migs a couple of seasons ago. Teaching a GK new tricks is easier said than done, especially if you have already been playing at the highest level for some time. We are seeing the best of Pope right now. If his kicking's bad now, its unlikely to be anything more than adequate even after world class training. Look at Migs, was bad with distribution and is worse off now in spite of KLopp giving him so many chances and time.



03 Jun 2018 10:50:25
Hi Ed001, this regarding Suso. When he was with us I thought he will be the future and a team should be build around him. But unfortunately it wasn't the case. Now with AC Milan, I don't follow him. Is he started to fulfill the promise? . Is he playing good? Or he found his level?


{Ed001's Note - he was playing really well the first part of the season but then the whole Milan team dissolved into a mess.}

1.) 03 Jun 2018 12:02:44
Milan improved in the second half of the season ed1. They went on a really good run at one stage and made the cup final.
Suso is one of their better players but for me he lacks pace to play out wide, he would certainly make our front 3 imbalanced.

{Ed001's Note - the second half of their season was an absolute mess away from the pitch mate. I wasn't talking about on the pitch. They are a complete shambles.}

2.) 03 Jun 2018 12:17:05
They are in a mess financially, a real mess and have been for a while now.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 13:55:07
Milan are a mess up and down the shop. The fact that Borini ended the season at RB is all you need.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 13:59:39
Then my question Ed001, will you sign suso back?

{Ed001's Note - I don't see him fitting the way we play now. So no, much as I loved him as a player for us.}

5.) 03 Jun 2018 15:00:34
Thanks Ed.



25 May 2018 19:23:28
Ed001 and fellow reds, this will be my first CL final I am going to watch live from Tele. Previous two missed out due to schoolings. Can't wait. Not interested in doing anything almost every sec looks hell. Did you have same feelings when you watch for the first time?


{Ed001's Note - the build up always drags, even now. It is so difficult to concentrate on anything.}

1.) 25 May 2018 19:36:50
This one won't drag!

2.) 25 May 2018 19:32:46
Yeah Ed. Just 24 hrs and 12 mins remaining. How hell it can be : (.

{Ed001's Note - I really have no idea how I am going to make it through tomorrow.}

3.) 25 May 2018 19:49:43
Weds night champions league finals were always better for the nerves.

4.) 25 May 2018 20:08:39
I imagine several beers and a couple of shorts will be how most people make it through the day tomorrow!

5.) 25 May 2018 23:55:35
cant sleep.

6.) 25 May 2018 20:21:38
Me either Ed mate, today's dragged worse then I ever imagined, tomorrow it'll be even worse!

7.) 26 May 2018 01:48:26
Me either!

With the window shortened and WC taking place I don't think the club will take a risk. They will go for Ceballos if not another player of his mould. Seriously it's going to affect the youngsters as Ed001 pointed earlier.

For one last time deal isn't off and certainly not due to medicals. Fee hasn't agreed. As of now negotiations stopped. This is what Edward, Ed or Eddie told us.
