Ed002, is there any potential impact to the recent allegations against PSG and Man City. I know not Liverpool related, don't beat me up to much.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what allegations have been made but if it relates back to the 12/13 era it would be perhaps a case of UEFA finding their new turbo-charged feet in terms of handing out penalties. I have seen several posts about the general theme, if it is no more than bitching about it really being much worse than it was, that may well be truce. They got abrupt punishment that perhaps could have been more serious, but someone will need to give me a pointer to the specifics for me to rationally comment.}}

1.) 02 Nov 2018 23:27:17
I read Psg should sell mbappe and neymar because the money used for them wasn’t financially fair?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am not sure what is meant by that.}

2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:13
I believe the allegations were that Infantino met with the Qatari’s and said if they buy PSG he will overlook FFP in their favour and ensure that they got to host the 2022 World Cup. There was something similar to do with Man City but I’m not sure of the full details of that.

{Ed002's Note - That sounds like nonsense from Twitter. Regardless, that is all totally untrue.}

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:32:32
Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks Ed002. It was football leaks that broke the story and I have no idea how reliable they are.

{Ed002's Note - They have seemingly got some information that dates between 2014 and recently which is why it is muddled.



11 Jun 2018 23:26:31
Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}

8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.

9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?

10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}

13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.

14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}

16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}

17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}

18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

03 Nov 2018 18:41:11
I really like our team but I'm wondering if we need a true #10. I'm not sure just wondering what others think.

1.) 03 Nov 2018 18:46:18
I really don't think that's the problem today.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 18:54:32
Sorry, I didn’t necessarily mean today. I still think we have the team to win the league.

3.) 03 Nov 2018 19:27:25
It was a fair result. Not too pleased with our performance though. I understand what Ed01 means by Wijnaldum hiding now. Don't think I saw him all game. Bobby also was disappointing. Alisson was betrayed by his defence for the goal.
Still unbeaten though and plenty more games to come.

{Ed025's Note - it was a fair result mate..

4.) 03 Nov 2018 19:57:08
I’ll disagree with Ed025. On the performance, maybe. On the chances we created, should have won by a margin. Mane’s wrongly ruled offside, VVD’s 3 big chances, and that’s not including Salah’s nearly playing someone in on 2 counts. Still a point gained, but should have won.

{Ed0333's Note - I am absolutely numb with that result. We should have won

5.) 03 Nov 2018 20:24:23
I agree ed0333. I don’t necessarily think it was a fair result. That goal from mane should have counted. Having said that we are still unbeaten in the league and I truly believe that we can win the league.

{Ed025's Note - i think for all us neutrals it was a fair result stone..

6.) 03 Nov 2018 20:25:44
As good as our front 3 can be sadly sometimes they are isolated with a lack of attacking support. We can’t always just attack in a 3. City attack in fives and sixes. Our midfield are good at nice little passes to each other and the defence but they need to start chipping in with goals and assists. Coutinho used to offer us double figures there.

7.) 03 Nov 2018 20:26:10
I think arsenal just slightly edged that game tonight on overall play. Getting 3 points would have been robbery even if we did have the better of the chances.

Van dijk had a stormer. So did mustafi though.

Disapointing to lose a lead but i feel it would have papered over a few cracks in the midfield department were we were very poor tonight. don't think those 3 work well together at all. Needed a runner and ball carrier in there to create space in other areas. Was all a bit too predictable.

Bobby is having to drop way too deep this season. Hopefully keita can get up and going again soon.

Shiqiri should have been brought on around the 60 imo. I think it would have made the arsenal defence a bit less organised.

Still undefeated though. Keeps the momentum going.

Onwards and upwards.

8.) 03 Nov 2018 20:30:01
Fully agree. We snatched a draw from the jaws of victory. Nobody should be happy with 2 points dropped. If ManC win tomorrow, the pressure on us will notch up one step.

{Ed025's Note - i would say a point at the emirates is a point gained aray..

9.) 03 Nov 2018 20:38:59
You are about as far from neutral as it gets Ed25! 😂.

{Ed025's Note - thats not fair bobby, you may not agree with all i say but im afraid thats you being a red more than me being a blue mate..

10.) 03 Nov 2018 21:11:16
Come on Salah, I need a little support against Ed025, where are you!

{Ed025's Note - i am not the enemy stone, the weight of expectation is mate..

11.) 03 Nov 2018 21:23:06
Ed 0025 you aww awesome. I love reading your posts and confront a good win today.

{Ed025's Note - i was a good win stone, but that was not the only good performance by a merseyside team...tranmere won as well.. :)

12.) 03 Nov 2018 21:50:54
Undefeated for merseyside is a good day ed 025.

13.) 03 Nov 2018 20:57:30
Unpopular opinion, maybe. But if we'd Henderson on the bench, this is one of those games he would've come in, with us being 1-0 up and just killed the opposition's flow.
We'd more chances to win it, Arsenal just had possession. A point apiece isn't exactly fair. But it's something to build on.

14.) 03 Nov 2018 20:59:54
For me personally im not going to sit here and say we dropped two points we never ever looked in control and a point for me is a fair result
didnt think trent or bobby had their best games but when you don't play well and can't win then at least draw that is the sign of a team progressing along nicely
Bring on fulham and Naby to grab his first goal for us alongside Fabinho.

15.) 03 Nov 2018 22:29:17
Ed I know you aren’t the enemy and I know that you support the merseyside as do I. I truly respect you and your posts.

{Ed025's Note - cheers stone, i like the liverpool guys and its all a bit of fun and a lot of banter mate which its all about, i can go back to the days when derby,s were like that and we walked and drank together before and after the games, ahh halcyon days indeed, alas its not like that anymore its been replaced by twisted knob heads of both teams who would rather fight than have a good time, their loss in my view but on this site it seems to be fine, lets hope we can be the example for future generations who care about this city its great history and its great teams...i will get of my soap box now mate before i start crying..

16.) 03 Nov 2018 19:46:32
Probably right Ed but do feel a tad agreaved by the disallowed goal, I saw that it was OK on the TV and quite clearly at that, linesman should not have got that one wrong. Don't get me wrong may have had the same result in the end, but that really did erk me. Thought the ref in particular was very poor tonight actually, not sour grapes either, had we won 10 nil I'd have said the same about the ref.

{Ed025's Note - hopefully these things even themselves out during the season istanbul, but in the end its a very good point against a good arsenal side even though you were not at your best remain undefeated and at the top of the tree mate...for a good few hours at least..

17.) 03 Nov 2018 23:51:14
Fair result but I think they will be more disappointed with the result.
Salah is just not at the races. He’s lost pace, he’s lost confidence and he’s lost the ability to play a simple pass. Beyond that he’s not attacking the ball, he’s waiting for it.
Trent was bloomin awful today. Gave the ball away, stood with his arm in the air whilst Lacazette practised his dribbling before scoring, constantly leaving space behind him.

That lad needs some time on the bench.
Firmino is struggling too, I forgot he was playing today.

Positives today - Robbo (outstanding), Van Dijk (colossal), Milner (consistent and reliable)

18.) 04 Nov 2018 08:02:18
A guy who has scored 4 goals in the last 4 games has lost confidence, pace and ability to play a simple pass. Knee jerk reaction, much?

19.) 04 Nov 2018 14:35:05
When we are 1-0 up we should see it through. Draw is a disappointment.

20.) 04 Nov 2018 14:37:27
Would be nice to go back to them days shame these persons ruin it for the genuine fans they would go the opening of a letter if they could have a kick off after.



27 Oct 2018 21:47:01
Ed's I know this isn't Liverpool related but do any of you have info on the helicopter crash involving the leicester owner? I pray everyone is okay.

{Ed025's Note - only what we are reading on the net and watching on the news stone, early days yet but lets hope and pray for everyone involved mate..

1.) 27 Oct 2018 21:54:36
Oh bloody hell I hadn't seen this, horrific news.

2.) 27 Oct 2018 23:56:26
Thoughts and prayers for anyone involved.



27 Oct 2018 18:37:46
Ed001. This is a fantastic site for people to meet and discuss Liverpool. We may not all agree, but it really feels like a community. We all live all over the world and many of us have never met, however I feel that I know many on here. Was that your intention all along? If so, well done.

{Ed001's Note - never really knew what would happen when we started it. I had never been on the internet when we began it. Never even had a computer or an internet connection initially. It was more a case of just set up a site and see what happens.}

1.) 27 Oct 2018 19:48:40
And it’s gone down hill ever since Tris :)

{Ed025's Note - love it benny..

2.) 27 Oct 2018 19:49:58
Well, some of the best "inventions" were by accident, so thank you again.

3.) 27 Oct 2018 20:02:29
Quality post stone, as always. Well done to all the Eds, the work is never unappreciated.



16 Oct 2018 10:39:41
Did anyone see Dier's challenge on Ramos? Classic. Is he a Liverpool fan?

1.) 16 Oct 2018 12:59:04
Was a good tackle, 1 footed, got the ball completely and the change in direction and momentum from the ball caused Ramos to start going down before he was even touched by Dier on the follow through.

However Ramos gets up and complains like he has never done that sort of thing to another player before, take it on the chin like players do when on the end of one of your tackles does you mook.

2.) 16 Oct 2018 13:21:54
I saw it described as a “fantastically pointless clattering” which seems apt. I can’t think of a more dislikable figure currently in football, the stamp on Raheem last night exemplifies that. fair play to dier.

3.) 16 Oct 2018 13:14:45
It would have been deemed a good tackle 10 years ago.

4.) 16 Oct 2018 13:52:44
To be honest Den, it would still be deemed a good tackle in the eyes of any decent ref. If it was a defender vs attacker it would definitely have not been a pen.

5.) 16 Oct 2018 17:46:40
Growing up on Merseyside before moving to Lisbon I’d be surprised if he wasn’t a Liverpool fan but please don’t start a campaign to buy him! His skills are level with his name.



12 Oct 2018 10:39:58
What a gesture from Mane! Hats off to him.

1.) 12 Oct 2018 22:59:28
100 jerseys to he s village in Africa I would call that the least he and all other top paid footballers should do.

2.) 13 Oct 2018 06:49:48
Still, Irish Milner, its a nice gesture is it not? we don't see it enough but when we do it deserves to be applauded.

3.) 13 Oct 2018 10:16:36
It's smart marketing. 500 shirts would have been better. 😉.

4.) 13 Oct 2018 12:26:41
Nice ok but all I say is it's at least they should do.

{Ed001's Note - should is the key word there. He is doing as he should so why have the dig? Why not just scroll past instead of being so negative about a good gesture he didn't have to make?}

5.) 12 Oct 2018 17:18:41
Didn’t drogba end a war? Not crapping on mane - just pointing out how much footballers can change the world if they looked beyond what’s in their immediate viewpoint.

6.) 13 Oct 2018 18:41:55
I said they meaning footballers not forgetting there roots wasn't talking about mane in general.

Maybe I didn't read it thoroughly enough, but is that league to replace the champions league or is it a break away European league meaning Liverpool, Man U, Man City, Arsenal, and Chelsea would leave the Premier League?

George Harrison is my favorite Beatle. Hugely underrated in my opinion. Absolutely love his music. His first solo album was brilliant in my opinion. George, I really believe that Klopp is pacing the club this season. Last year the club was spent at the end and sputtered at the end. We are deeper this season and so much better defensively. I understand your points in your initial post but I truly believe that in the second half of the season they will absolutely take off. The reason I believe that as strongly as I do is the fact that in matches like yesterday, we would have dropped points in the past few years. Looking at the Huddersfield and Spurs matches in particular give me reason for optimisim this season. I agree we shouldn't be over confident, but I feel good about our position right now.

Ed002, is there any truth that the owners are letting it known that they are open to selling? It wasn't long ago that they said that they had no intention of selling.

Also, on another note, I think it's interesting that there are reports that FIFA would ban any player who participates in a break away league from any FIFA sponsored tournaments. You told us that years ago, thank you again for sharing your knowledge.
