Ed002,recent reports suggest an interest in Emerson of Roma, with the club likely to bid tomorrow. Any truth? Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I would not have thought another left back a priority.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 08:53:33
How many left backs do we actually need?

{Ed001's Note - 7, one for each day of the week that we can swap in depending on the day we play.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 09:02:28
Guys is it not plain simple that we are going to play two left backs. Moreno and whoever comes in, Moreno is never in the right place so the second left back will be there to cover for him.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 09:37:34
Maybe we're cornering the market in left footers to create a worldwide shortage to drive the prices up?

4.) 31 Aug 2017 10:27:46
Surely we only need 6 then ed? Champions league this year means no Thursday football for us!

{Ed001's Note - ah but we might come 3rd in our group......}

5.) 31 Aug 2017 12:39:07
If we come third in this group ed we might as well pack it up and go home, we won't be going anywhere on Thursday's either.



10 May 2017 16:06:31
We've been linked with Stoke winger, Ramadan Sobhi. Any truth in this eds?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but the club are looking for a left winger.}

1.) 10 May 2017 17:28:59
Thanks for the reply Ed002. I think he moved from North Africa last year but he has impressed in the brief appearences for Stoke. Widely regarded as the next big African talent.

2.) 10 May 2017 20:49:14
That'll be 2 wingers out for AFCON then.

3.) 10 May 2017 22:59:23
Afcon is in 2019 boys and girls not ever year.

4.) 11 May 2017 12:01:49
That's fine then, we won't need players in 2019.

5.) 11 May 2017 13:07:34
We should be able to cope without a player or 2 for a month - our dreadful form may have coincided with Mane going to the AFCON but it wasn't caused by it - we got casual, took our foot of the gas, did not adapt properly to the different team dynamic and rolled over against weak opposition. If that happens again, with or without the AFCON, we will struggle. The problem wasn't Mane leaving, it was the players still there not performing well enough.

6.) 12 May 2017 06:26:57
Seano I think you underestimate the difference Mane made. Shouldnt have been the difference but it was a big part in it.



03 Feb 2017 16:43:42
Who will be replacing Ayre as Chief Exec? I know the new CEO role will have less influence as Mike Edwards will take over some of the duties but still curious nonetheless. Thanks.


1.) 03 Feb 2017 19:19:03
Big Billy Hogan.

2.) 03 Feb 2017 21:00:40
Nope, he's the new managing director! The new CEO will not be revealed until after the season according to the Echo!



03 Aug 2016 18:22:13
Liverpool considering a bid for Gibbs.


1.) 05 Aug 2016 02:59:04
I would rather us go for Obita.



12 Jul 2016 22:12:53
Hi Eds, read today that Clyne is unhappy under Klopp and that he was subsequently offered to Barcelona (who I believe are in the market for a full back) . Is there any amount of truth in this? Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - It has been said that Clyne is not too keen on certain matters but I am not aware of his agent offering him the Barcelona at all.}

1.) 12 Jul 2016 22:22:59
If he is unhappy, i think now might be a decent time to cash in with the general opinion of him being quite high outside of Liverpool. I feel most fans on here see him as alright but nothing that can't easily be replaced, especially if we could recoup a decent fee. Only problem is, who replaces him?

{Ed002's Note - How about JF?}

2.) 12 Jul 2016 22:27:29
What sort of matters? If you don't mind me asking.

3.) 12 Jul 2016 22:43:39
His agent should try Real Madrid or Bayern instead 😂.

4.) 12 Jul 2016 22:53:43
Out of curiosity, what's the drama?

5.) 13 Jul 2016 00:13:14
I think Clyne escaped without much criticism last year that could have come his way but seemed to be aimed at the keeper and other backs for some reason. He was bang average in his first year. That may be due to settling but there was very little indication of "what's to come" from him even.

6.) 13 Jul 2016 00:17:51
Forgot his birthday.

7.) 13 Jul 2016 00:07:12
Ed001 has said that Clyne is not seen as the long term solution at left back, perhaps he is slightly put out by that.

8.) 13 Jul 2016 00:42:04
Mario gaspar villareal
Mallo celta vigo two goood rightbacks i am a fan of.

9.) 13 Jul 2016 01:04:53
Did see him. argue with klopp a few times when he was on pitch in the initial games klopp in charge.

10.) 12 Jul 2016 22:39:36
James Franco is a terrible actor Ed, but I do think he'd make a good right back.

11.) 12 Jul 2016 23:08:20
Thank you Ed002 for the reply. What do you mean by the fact that Clyne is not keen on certain matters? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It means he is not a happy bunny right now.}

12.) 13 Jul 2016 08:42:55
If he's not happy we should be getting rid. I personally think he's alright. For now atleast but can't have unhappy players.

13.) 13 Jul 2016 08:51:31
I'm very curious to know what his issues are as well. Did you mean right back, Dan? To be fair to him, he was Mr Consistency last season, just didn't exactly excite very often. There are better right backs in the world. Presumably we will be signing Cedric Soares to replace him.

14.) 13 Jul 2016 09:13:24
I did mean right back Jurgen, apologies, perhaps that's why I got so many disagrees? .

15.) 13 Jul 2016 11:22:02
Cedric it is then! 😂.

16.) 13 Jul 2016 14:17:48
Can't believe we missed out on Wanyama and Pelle. For shame! Also, there hasn't been a Shane Long rumour in ages! And I'm well pissed off we dragged our heels and let Bertrand sign a new contract. Hopefully, in what's left of the window, we'll be able to tie up the Jay Rodríguez and Tadic deals to complete our summer shopping. ;)

17.) 13 Jul 2016 17:09:06
Another whinger? He played almost every game last season so what's his beef?

18.) 13 Jul 2016 20:57:32
Barcelona are no longer in the market having just signed Digne (unless they wanted two)

19.) 14 Jul 2016 09:04:27
Except that Digne is a left-back. Obviously his beef can't be game-time. Maybe he doesn't like being shouted at from the touchline? Maybe he thinks he's perfect and doesn't understand why Klopp wants him to improve? He's not so bad, not perfect, but perfectly average.
Please Ed, can you give us any further hint what issues are causing him to have a strop?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

20.) 14 Jul 2016 20:54:06
Of course important he is a starting right full for LFC why isn't it important to LFC fans.

21.) 15 Jul 2016 08:52:53
The problem is whilst Clyne is decent but nothing special that pretty much describes the majority of FBs out there right now, at best. So the options for replacing him, bar JF being the obvious one, aren't going to add anything. Unless his attitude is Sterling level then what's the issue really?

22.) 17 Jul 2016 08:13:16
Long is rubbish mate I love him Irishman here.

23.) 17 Jul 2016 08:23:47
I agree Istanbul bang average for his country also give flanno a shout.

A question to Ed001 - I read the other day about Bielsa leaving Lille. I know how highly you rate him, as I do too, I was wondering how you feel about the chaotic time he was there? Very poor form, and bought a lot of players in over the summer. Such a shame - curious to hear your thoughts.


{Ed001's Note - that is just the way he is. He is a genius with fantastic ideas but he is too intense and chaotic for club football. Thing is, if he had everything laid out to his way of thinking, the way Pep has at Man City, it would be fine, but no one else has that luxury. Though Lille do now have a fantastic training facility he had a big hand in the set up of. Lille were never ready for someone like him.}

1.) 17 Dec 2017 08:17:57
I love Bielsa BUT he is a hot head and I can't deal with that Ed, I'm sorry.

2.) 17 Dec 2017 08:36:48
Would you say Wenger does not have that luxury ed?

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure, I would think if he could he would want more. More money to spend on players. A bigger, better, more fully equipped training ground. Etc etc. Pep walked into a club with everything built for him and has just been given more and more.}



30 Oct 2017 21:09:13
Ed001, what's your opinion on Ben Mee? Personally think he is very underrated and makes fellow Burnley CB's much better when playing alongside them. Worth a shout for our defensive worries?


{Ed001's Note - I agree with you, he is the lynchpin of their defence. I would not be against signing him. He looks like he could step up.}

1.) 30 Oct 2017 21:15:18
Surely he wouldn't be too expensive and should be fairly attainable. Have the club took a look at him? Made Micheal keane look competent last year!

{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of any interest from us. I was surprised Everton took Keane rather than him to be honest.}

2.) 30 Oct 2017 21:38:41
I said to my toffee mate when Everton signed Keane, that they were signing the wrong player. Nee was clearly the best of the two players.

Even Tarkowski is better than Keane. Sometimes i find myself feeling upset that we have to pick 2 players out of Gomez, Matip, Lovren and Klavan.

Then i look at Everton who have to pick 2 out of Williams, Jagielka, Funes Mori and Keane and it cheers me up a bit 😂.

{Ed001's Note - that is why you should never pick a player purely on the stats, you end up with the Keanes rather than Mees.}

3.) 31 Oct 2017 07:13:03
He's too selfish,

It's all Mee, Mee, Mee with him.

4.) 31 Oct 2017 08:36:13
Using stats to judge players esp. defenders and CB's in particular, is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. To me, it all smacks of laziness from any scouting team worth it's onions.



28 Sep 2017 19:33:51
Just thought I'd mention some players that prehaps don't get an abundance of media attention but I think are hidden gems and could benefit Liverpool.
Ismaily (LB) Shaktar
Josef Souza (CDM) Fernabache
Vitinho (CF) CSKA Moscow
Diego Demme (CDM) Leipzig
Joel Veltman (CB) Ajax
Malcolm (Winger) Bordeaux
Kerem Demibray (CAM) Hoffenheim
Thomas Partey (CDM) Atletico Madrid
Donny Van de Beek (CM) Ajax
Mandi (CB) Betis
Christopher Jullian (CB) Toulouse

Feel free to add anymore and discuss my opinion. Cheers.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 18:54:08
Demirbay, Malcolm and Isa Mandi are ones to watch in the future, I think.



13 Aug 2017 23:46:59
If you're about Ed001, could I get your opinion on the rumoured "replacements" for Phil if he does indeed depart? Diego Laxalt, Max Meyer and Lorenzo Insigne. I really like Insigne and he has a bigger pedigree than the other 2. Or, maybe were looking at someone entirely different! Cheers pal.


{Ed001's Note - only Insigne I would have any interest in seeing at Liverpool but he is no replacement for Coutinho.}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 04:36:18
I would forget about attack minded players now. Want to see VVD and a no nonsense CDM like Nzonzi come in to help out the CBs. Then make another final push for Keita and see what happens. IF Keita happens, the we can sell Can who probably wants to leave too.
That leaves us with Nzonzi and Hendo in the CDM role, while Keita, Grujic, Lallana and Gini fight it out for the remaining two midfield spots.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 09:54:40
IB, you are barking up the wrong tree with keita and IMO, VVD. They are not coming, end of. We have shifted our focus elsewhere.



12 Aug 2017 00:43:43
I don't have any issue with Phil wanting to go. It was sadly inevitable. It is the stuff most aspiring footballers dream of - plying their trade for Barcelona or Real. The issue that I do have is the timing. Phil has been courting Barcelona for over a year and it was about 4 weeks when substantial moves were made by Barcelona to bring him in, and Phil remained fairly silent. This subsequently brought the impression to many fans that he was going to give us another year. The fact that he has left it this late in the window to hand in a transfer request and really drive through the move is what really annoys me the most. It's on the eve of the season, limited time left to get a quality replacement and basically has left us in a really bad posistion. Hopefully, some sort of compromise is made between Phil and the club because if not I will have sadly lost some respect for someone who I really wish well and appreciate some of the top moments he's brought us.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 01:39:16
Suarez ill only ever play 4 lfc in the prem!
I guarentee he's been 1 of the main players in taking him there.
I was only saying 2 my son he has been quiet lately about his love 4 liverpool fc the other day.
I no he was over in july cos they give another donation 2 arrowe park hospital witch they reguraly do 4 the maternity ward.
Witch hatsoff 2 them they have 4 ladt few years lucas and agger being regular funders.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 07:38:36
The timing is down to Barcelona basically. They offered less than the club is prepared to accept and then made it clear to Coutinho he joins them now or never. the Neymar situation delayed some bits potentially but ultimately the only way his happens earlier is if they threw silly money at LFC. Let's be honest if the club had taken lower offers or hadn't said not for sale or he had put in a TR previously people on here would have been merrily putting the boot in. So how could it have been done earlier, without Barcelona throwing in lots of money, without it turning into a case of LFC and the player being ripped to shreds?

3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:58:01
Completely agree, fresh.

Ed002 mentioned Laxalt and Meyer. But Insigne in my opinion is a class above them two and a real gritty player considering his dimuntive stature.

Bit of an overreaction! Hendo has only been injured twice his season and its not long term. No need for a kneejerk reaction.

Players that Klopp liked, but were out of our price range. I know I sound really vague ed002 but what I mean to say is will the likes of the Thomas Mullers (poor example) or other previously unthinkable targets now become viable due to the increased funds if Coutinho leaves? I hope you can understand what I'm trying to imply - will klopp return to previous out of range targets? Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I honestly don't know which players you are referring to. There were two players he looked at last year who were not available because Klopp tapped them up and Liverpool were warned in both cases. There is potentially Brandt who might be more open to a move now that Coutinho could be leaving - but Salah has already arrived.}

He never played as an attacking midfielder for us MK Scouser, Rodgers bizzarely used him on the left of midfield until Klopp came in and utilised him as a proxy False Nine.
