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.}

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.



02 Sep 2018 13:48:02
Happy Birthday Shanks!

1.) 02 Sep 2018 16:59:17
If the great man was still here he'd still be arranging kickabouts in the local parks on his 105th birthday.



30 Aug 2018 14:56:22
Ed002, safe travels. looking forward to your next post.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks. I have returned this morning. Safely.}

1.) 31 Aug 2018 18:51:03
Hope you had a good time away Ed2.

{Ed002's Note - It was very rushed Salah thatnks. But I did manage to buy a ride back from Nice to Exeter this morning so I was back before midday.}

2.) 31 Aug 2018 21:14:41
Ah its always better getting back early Ed2 isn't it, I hate getting back from being away late on in the day. I hope you are having a nice and chilled night, take care mate.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, I went for cocktails and am now back watching Randell and Hopkirk.}

3.) 31 Aug 2018 22:24:44
Randell and Hopkirk Ed2 bloody hell that's a blast from the past, I heard a few years ago they were going to remake it but I don't think it ever happened, not that I know of anyway.

{Ed002's Note - It happened but perhaps should not have done.}

4.) 01 Sep 2018 00:07:19
It never works Ed2 when they remake old classics, at least in my opinion it doesn't. They're remaking the good stuff because they've ran out of ideas, I'm sure of it.

{Ed002's Note - I would completely agree Salah.}

5.) 01 Sep 2018 10:14:18
Have a good day Ed2.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks you do the same and keep getting better.}



25 Aug 2018 00:57:38
Salah, are you home yet? Would you mind giving us an update on how you are progressing? I'm sure you can tell that there are quite a few concerned about you and wondering how you are getting along. Don't need a play by play. Know that you have a lot of support if you need it. I'd be glad to send you my email address if you need to vent or whatever else.

1.) 25 Aug 2018 06:50:42
Morning Stone, I'm not yet home mate, if it was up to me I would be but you know what they're like. I feel good mate but keep having dizzy spells for some odd reason but I'm fine :) I think I'll be released today or tomorrow, I hope anyway! . I can't wait to get home and get back to normality lol. Have a great day stone and thank you for your posts, they mean a lot, I wish I could thank everybody individually but there's so many people who posted, I appreciate it please know that.

2.) 25 Aug 2018 09:41:25
Like I always say, MO, "you still da man". Keep it up and glad to know you're being discharged soon. Means you're getting closer to normal health (soon enough and with time) . Take good care. 👍.

3.) 25 Aug 2018 15:38:37
Don't rush it mate, one step at a time. Let those nurses make a fuss over you a while yet!
Hospital time is like prison time, SLOW.
I can well understand you wanting to be out of there.
Just take it steady.

4.) 25 Aug 2018 16:46:11
Lol still the same good old Salah, take it easy you'll have time to type every 1s name After Klopp lifts the title. Good to have you back.

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.

Very happy for Danny Ings. I only wish it would have worked out for him at LFC. I'm a big fan.

Best of luck to Karius. I wish it would have worked out for him here, but I'm happy that he is getting a fresh start.

Sorry Ed, I wasn't having a go at Lovren with the comment to sell. I wasn't even thinking about Matip. That makes better sense. Thanks for the comment on Phillips.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I guessed you must have forgotten about Matip.}

Thank you for that Ed. I really can't disagree with anything. I especially liked your comments on Lallana. When he first signed with us and especially when Klopp came on board, I thought he would be a game changer. I understand the injuries and all, but he has been a disappointment overall. I still think Fabinho will be an important piece for us in the second half. I also agree with you that our best back line is with Gomez partnering with VVD. Ed, do you think that Phillips has a future with the club? I'm wondering if we should commit to Gomez, sell Lovren, and promote Phillips next season.

{Ed001's Note - surely the better option would be to offload Matip to promote Phillips? I do believe he has every chance of a future, but he has to go out and grab it.}
