Personally, I really hope Can stays. I think he has the potential to be a really special player. If he leaves he's one that people here who complain about him will wonder why on earth we let him go.

1.) 26 Aug 2017 22:15:14
I agree. Different player to Couts, but in a few years he will be as big a player. I get the same feeling with him as I did with Alli - he has quality written all over him.

Also who would fashion all the LFC gear? Am getting quite used to random pictures of Emre appearing on my screen wearing various clobber with his chest puffed out.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 22:58:16
Emre Can is more similar to Vidal at Bayern and Naingolan at Roma, as a box to box player, and he seemingly enjoys this role and has been chipping in with goals of late.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 23:41:41
People ask very often about the tough, hard men that played for LFC in the 70's and 80's (Smith, Souness, McMahon etc., ) . In my opinion, Emre Can is the closest thing I have seen to a tough hard LFC man, since those days. You can see the warrior spirit from a mile away. Jamie Carragher had it too.

4.) 27 Aug 2017 18:04:23
If there is anyone that would ever do a Patrick Viera from Liverpool, It is Emre Can!

Ed002, since you were born in the US, are you still a citizen? if so, I'd vote for you as President. Should I start a Ed002 2020 campaign?

{Ed002's Note - I am a US citizen but hold a second passport (for reasons we can't go into) but may not be by 2020 (almost certainly not).}

1.) 26 Aug 2017 21:45:10
darn, i'd love to see you in charge of the free world. you'd be amazing.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 22:33:00
That settles it ed is a secret agent handler.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 22:52:25
When u speak Ed do you make your mouth go super-small- and have to say everything twice?

{Ed002's Note - only if kissing at the same time.}

4.) 27 Aug 2017 09:58:07
So you think it will take Trump that long to implode the US ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt (hope) he won't be around then.}



25 Aug 2017 10:35:58
If couts does make a public plea to leave as is being rumoured, I don't see a way back for him. I can see a situation where he is gone and we don't have anyone else coming in until January. The club have made a mess of what should have been a great summer.

1.) 25 Aug 2017 10:56:03
Did Suarez shut himself out the team when he tried pushing a move to Arsenal? Players come and go, get led by there agents at times and make stupid decisions. If every player "had no way back" after wanting to move then there would have been a lot more transfers in the history of the game.

{Ed002's Note - Suarez threatened legal action against the club.}

2.) 25 Aug 2017 11:35:16
He sure did but at least he didn't get his mummy to phone in sick for him - I'm joking.
Look, nobody knows what's going on behind the scenes.
How do we know for example if he and Klopp genuinely did or did not fall out over the Summer? We don't.
It's very simple in my book, if a fair offer comes in with straight up payments, let him go.
I know it's unpopular to say it but the lad is human, he has childhood dreams he wants to live out.
I know we'll be weaker unless he's replaced but sometimes we need to see the bigger picture.
I believe we would let him go if a fair offer is made, so in my book it's Barcelona who need to make this right not us.
We in turn should fix the situation with Southampton and Van Dijk if we can - overpay if needed as we have messed them and the player about.

3.) 25 Aug 2017 11:36:50
Let's face it, your average footballer isn't that sharp and they are easily led by their agents, who at the end of the day are after money alone. They are young men being manipulated by sharks. One club men like Carra and Le Tissier are few and far between. Enjoy them while that stay, and respect them afterwards if they deserve it.

4.) 25 Aug 2017 11:39:54
Let Coutinho go that's what I think, we've done fine without him so far so take the money (as long as price is right) and re invest in 3 players, CB, CM and winger. If we could bring in VVD or Koulibaly defence is stronger, If we bring in Keita for CM yes we lose the creativity of Pipco but Keita might well turn out to be an absolute world beater and bring in Ox because Klopp likes him and he'd fit our system. For me signing 3 players like the above 3/ 4 mentioned we're a stronger side.

5.) 25 Aug 2017 12:22:59
Nice one Kev.

6.) 25 Aug 2017 13:08:12
Good thing you don't run the club, RedTed. Cos next time, it will be Bobbie, then Mane throwing the same crap up just to get a move. Then, what do you do then? How do we compete by selling our best players w/ o putting up some fight to keep them at least for a couple more season, all cos they threw a pathetic tantrum? If you really think we can do w/ o Cou esp. w/ o a replacement in sight then, you are leaving in an alternate reality.

7.) 25 Aug 2017 17:53:33
BingoRed let's be honest Coutinho doesn't want to be at the club I can't see him playing to the level he did last year despite it being a World Cup year. He's handed in a TR so there is the desire to leave the club yes he's one of our best players but when a better team come after players they usually get their man. Mane and Firmino haven't asked to leave so that's irrelevant.

There will be interest in Mane but I genuinely think he'll stay at the club for many years to come because he is the one player that can take us to the next level imo not Coutinho. We compete by improving other areas of the team, if Coutinho goes which he probably will imo by singing a CB who's better than we currently have, a CM who has the potential to be a world class player (Keita) and someone to add extra depth and quality Ox we're a better team than Coutinho staying and only signing one of those players. I know what I'd rather have and that's having players 100% committed to the club!

8.) 25 Aug 2017 18:08:16
Bingo red Coutinho should leave because he isn't 100% committed to the club and won't be again. I feel like we might as well get as much money as we can and te invest in some quality players, Redted is right when he says we'll be stronger for it. I personally would like to see VVD, Keita/ Seri and Ox. Maybe even Lanzini could come in. We lack depth that is my biggest concern so for me sell Coutinho and bring in 3/4.

9.) 26 Aug 2017 03:24:59
Let him go and reinvest the money? Have you been living under a rock lfcleon? We can't invest the money we have never mind what ever they want to pay for coutinho, we are a complete shambles of a club, an embarrassment.



11 Aug 2017 14:41:30
Eds, much appreciation for your patience in dealing with all of the questions throughout this ongoing saga. Great work.

{Ed002's Note - No problem - they will have the Sharkopod to listen to soon - and the chance to groove to Cliff Johns and the Screaming Najgers.}



05 Feb 2017 19:11:45
Eds, do you know anything about these leaked e-mails from FSG regarding their purchase of the club? I've heard bits and pieces, is it as bad as it sounds, or is it typical overreaction?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I haven't seen them as the wifi here is awful and I am mostly on my phone using data so only editing for now until I get sorted over the next weekend.}

1.) 05 Feb 2017 19:43:20
The ones I've seen don't seem that bad. doesn't mention player investment just acquiring the club on the cheap. basing it on the same model as the red six take over. Putting in premium seats and targeting the international fan base.

2.) 05 Feb 2017 21:06:22
I haven't seen the emails.
I as much as the next fan love the club and want nothing for the best for us.
In FSG purchasing the club. They done what any business would do. They got it for the cheapest possible price and they're expanding the LFC brand for a better financial income.

3.) 05 Feb 2017 21:17:39
The people that posted the e-mails on facebook and twitter have misread them completely. One discusses the different options that RBS had at the time -

1. Take a stake in the club
2. Put the club into administration
3. Extend the loans to Hicks and Gillette if they agreed to resign from the Board and RBS take control
4. Find a buyer, but these were just some peoples opinions.

The second e-mail states that if FSG managed to buy the club at the value of the debts to RBS then they would be getting a "steal. "

It then discusses how to maximise the clubs revenues by possibly one day using the website to stream pay per view matches and by redeveloping Anfield rather than building a new stadium.

No big deal, just people looking for any excuse to have a pop at the owners.

4.) 05 Feb 2017 23:03:10
No surely not, FSG are all about trophys 🏆 and looking after the fans. This cannot possibly be true, they saved us remember.

5.) 05 Feb 2017 19:37:54
cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I can't help more.}

6.) 06 Feb 2017 03:55:22
Waro if you read the alternatives if they hadn't have bought us, then yes they saved Liverpool. I'm sure if we'd been in administration or RBS had been running the club we wouldn't be where we are now in terms of investment since.

7.) 06 Feb 2017 05:25:48
Oh i wish fsg bought the club, made the stadium smaller and reduced tickets so only locals could go. and then I really wish they didn't bother with international fans cos it's not like manU, chelsea, city or arsenal do that. i really wish liverpokl became smaller cos then we'd be the biggesr club in england.

Ed I'm so glad to see that you wrote "sell if a replacement could be got". I got really tired of reading during the transfer period that Klopp gave a price. He did, but he also said there had to be a replacement. Thank you for writing that so hopefully it will silence those who only want to tell one side of the story and trash Klopp.

Ed 025, if you are going to have a bourbon as your image, pick a good one. Woodford Reserve is he premier bourbon. I'm from Kentucky, so take my word for it.

{Ed025's Note - i have never heard of that stone, honey JD is my latest tipple, i say tipple because i usually fall over after half a bottle mate.. :)

Thank you Ed, very good read. Could not agree more about Forster. That 3rd goal allowed was abysmal. Good for us though!

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. There was also Forster's juggling when he dropped it at Salah's feet just to the edge of the goal, which could easily have cost Saints another goal.}
