Thanks edds for all your hard work and patience during the transfer window. Some of you probably still have the ice packs against your head.
Quick question in relation to Lemar, reported in some papers today that Wenger will go in for him again in January.
Was Liverpools interest in him fabricated by Monaco or was it genuine?
Apologies if it's been dealt with but since the window closed I'm trying to convince my boss that I am good at my job and don't deserved to be sacked so time on your site is limited.


{Ed002's Note - I explained Liverpool's interest and it was there. And Arsenal will almost certainly continue to talk with Monaco, who accepted their offer, and the player's representatives, who they did not put a firm offer to, in order to see what can be done in January or next summer. They fear Barcelona stepping in. And why would Monaco fabricate anything about a player they really don't want to sell?}

Hello Ed02, Do you think Liverpool looking at him again in January. I don't know about the future of Coutinho ( if he would continue to angle a move ) in case he would be the replacement!

{Ed002's Note - Right now I don't think Liverpool will be looking at him in January.}

2.) 08 Sep 2017 13:29:10
I'd expect us to go for someone more like Meyer or Brandt now.

Lemar will be cup tied and 92mill for someone cup tied would seems steep for me. Just an opinion tho.

3.) 08 Sep 2017 13:30:05
Liverpool will look to Lemar if Coutinho leaves next summer. If Arsenal or another club snap him up in January, then our bad luck.
There is no space in the squad to accommodate Lemar if Coutinho stays. Its one or the other.

4.) 08 Sep 2017 14:03:05
I still think we should sign Snoop Dog instead 👀.

5.) 08 Sep 2017 14:04:22
Thanks Ed02.

6.) 08 Sep 2017 15:03:58
Liverpool will look at him if Barcelona look at Coutinho.

7.) 08 Sep 2017 16:40:14
*Shock Horror*
Are we saying that Coutinho to Barcelona wasn't a one-time only opportunity?

8.) 08 Sep 2017 17:56:42
Ed can I ask why you think that mate please? Appreciate January is a long way off but seems odd you think we wint return for a player who we clearly wanted, especially as when Couts might be gone?

{Ed002's Note - It was simply a knee jerk reaction for a player who Liverpool had not courted in response to the Coutinho situation and Klopp not managing to bring in any one of his four targets for this season. As I have explained, Arsenal will return and the fear they have is of Barcelona making a concerted effort to sign him.}

9.) 08 Sep 2017 20:22:17
Klopp has said before that only if the right player becomes available, not 2nd best fit,

So unless PSG or Sthmptn have a change of heart, (very doubtful)
I don't think there will be any incomings this January,

Hopefully with the addition of Robertson and the emergence of TTA and Gomez our defence will be meaner than last year.

10.) 08 Sep 2017 20:19:43
Keita, Brandt, VVD who was the 4th target?

{Ed002's Note - Sessegnon.}

11.) 08 Sep 2017 22:37:33
Do Barcelona see Lemar as an Alternative to Couts ed? Was it now or never ultimatum for Couts from Barca?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

Only 2 points behind City at the top but they are a huge 2 points. Feel more like 5 for some reason.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 13:56:54
What? 2 points are 2 points mate. It's nothing.

2.) 12 Nov 2018 14:21:54
It's more like 2.5 point with goal difference.

3.) 12 Nov 2018 14:22:10
This makes absolutely zero sense 😂.

4.) 12 Nov 2018 14:48:21
Math teachers globally are miserably failing their jobs if 5 feels like 2. That's all I have to say.

5.) 12 Nov 2018 15:01:12
Manchester City haven't played Chelsea in the league yet. Easily the next best team after us, lots of football to be played and lots of points to be dropped.

As LiverpoolFC8 put it, Manchester City have had an absurdly good start to the season. But they're only two points ahead of a team that hasn't even gotten into second gear. let's see how we're look in February when the team is gelling.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 15:03:59
Even if we were level on points still second on goal difference so it no major issue if we go by last season we were to far back come Christmas if we are touching distance in January I fancy our chances.

7.) 12 Nov 2018 15:48:39
Don't worry guys Chelsea will do us a favour, we just need to continue beating the dross and see where we are after 1st round of the season😊 we just need to enjoy the ride 🔴🔴.

8.) 12 Nov 2018 16:17:33
I think the Xmas games may be the proving ground for all the top 6 teams.

9.) 12 Nov 2018 18:53:59
Had LFC won the PL under BR, we would have won it while having an inferior goal difference to City's so the GD is of no relevance PROVIDED we have the points advantage.

As for City, they have had a great start to the season BUT people forget that they have actually dropped more points (4 overall) than they did at this point last season (2). Also, Pep's teams are known to hit a burnout stage near the end of the season as he did with Barca, Bayern and even City last season. Why? Cos Pep does NOT rotate and never has.

The diff. last season was that they were already well ahead of the pack and also, teams would never go at them, UNTIL Klopp and LFC did and we know what happened there in all 3 occasions we played them after the winter and spring. They will falter and it will be up to us to capitalize.

{Ed025's Note - at the moment brover i think this is you hoping rather than anything mate, city look very strong and have some excellent back up,s to step in when required so i dont think your assessment holds much water, yes he does play his strongest side but that is surely to his credit and they have top players to come in even if things do go wrong, liverpool have a strong first team which is not that much weaker than citys but anyone they bring in weakens the side as the squad depth is very much inferior to theirs, this is just my opinion of course...peace..

10.) 12 Nov 2018 20:50:26
Ed25, you are having a conversation that I am not having. I never said City did not look strong nor did not have a better squad. I said they drop off during the season cos Pep does not rotate and gave you an example of this and it is the same with all Pep's teams since Barca. Will that happen this season? Of course I hope so. What were you expecting me to say? Of course we are all hoping for things to go our way cos after all, no one is sure of anything.

Also, you say he plays his strongest lineup. That is to some extent true but it is by choice. Last season, Pep complained that he was lacking depth when they drew at Burnley and they have only added Mahrez this season so again, where is the depth then? It is he who does not play the squad players and not that he does not have the squad cos It all depends on who Pep trusts and clearly he does not trust Jesus, Zinchenko, Delph, Kompany, and has no replacement for Fernandinho.

City has a better squad than we do cos they have been chopping and changing good players for years. We are still young in the tooth on that level so you are stating the obvious here, man. Will we win the PL over City? I don't know cos anything can happen. We all live in hope and that is all we have right now.

{Ed025's Note - i often talk to myself brover, its old age mate.. :) peace..

11.) 12 Nov 2018 21:19:21
Cheers, Ed25 as always.

{Ed025's Note - respect mate..

12.) 12 Nov 2018 21:35:24
I'll just add that despite my admiration for Guardiola, I've always felt that for some reason he has never been able to instill supreme mental toughness into his teams. The way Mourinho does, or the way Ferguson did. You don't get that "we refuse to be beaten" vibe from Guadiola's players. He's a master in the tactical aspects of the game and in choosing players (while having an open checkbook at his disposal), but his teams can buckle when the pressure is really high.

It was not by coincidence that we eliminated them last year in the UCL. It's irrelevant it was a different competition; the football fields were the same, the country was the same and the players were the same, as were being played in the EPL. Klopp simply did a better job of instilling mental toughness and focus in LFC.

So ManC can be flying high right now, but they can wobble at any moment under the right circumstances, and it could be enough for us to sneak through to the final prize,

13.) 13 Nov 2018 13:38:59
With regard to my original post please try and read between the lines. Point I was trying to make is that City are a fantastic squad and we will have to be flawless for the rest of the season to make those 2 points up.

If or when Brexit is passed how will this effect the clubs from Great Britain competing in European competitions?

Technically these clubs would not be part of Europe.


{Ed002's Note - The clubs will still be part of Europe.}

1.) 16 Oct 2018 15:14:37
Cheers Ed002 for your reply. Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 16 Oct 2018 17:40:21
We may no longer be part of the EU, but the outcome is unlikely to take us out of the continent, geographically!

3.) 16 Oct 2018 17:32:57
Not football related but I've wondered the same thing about the Ryder cup.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure if I, as an American, should be explaining the fundmentals of European politics and World geography to Liverpool supporters. But in the simplest of terms, Brexit (if it happens) will not remove the UK from Europe, but it will remove it from the European Union. To cut short the next question, any trade deal with China does not mean the UK becomes part of Asia.

I have always been rather astonished how few of the English can distinguish between Great Britain and the UK.

4.) 16 Oct 2018 17:53:58
Brexit is about economics, not geography.

5.) 16 Oct 2018 18:18:01
I was hoping to be part Chinese.

6.) 16 Oct 2018 20:06:38
'To cut short the next question, any trade deal with China does not mean the UK becomes part of Asia'

Hahaha Ed2 you're on fire today mate, love it, brightened up my day that's for sure! Hope you're having a great night mate.

7.) 17 Oct 2018 09:13:20
hahah ed002 that was amazing, that brighten up my day, you have a good one.

8.) 17 Oct 2018 13:23:31
I do under stand that Brexit is an attempt to leave the EU and not physically leave Europe. My initial question was aimed at the fact that clubs are ran as businesses and as the EU govern trade rules within Europe I was wondering if it would effect the way UEFA would view clubs from Britain after the event.

Come to think of it, if Britain did physically leave Europe could another country move in in it's place or would it have to apply for planning permission first? lol.

{Ed002's Note - UEFA is nothing to do with the European Union. I often wonder what weird dioramas are running around inside the heads of Liverpool supporters.}

9.) 18 Oct 2018 13:16:51
Not just restricted to Liverpool supports Ed002, they are running around the heads of Blackburn supporters also lol.



09 Aug 2018 11:54:44
Hi Eds. Best of luck with the madness that's coming your way over the next six months and beyond.
Quick question with regard to Sturridge if you have the time to answer please.
The fact that we are willing to hold on to him for the coming season, have the medical staff given reassurance to the manager they have gotten to the root of his niggling injuries or is it a case of close you eyes and cross your fingers?
Seems a weird one to me that Klopp is willing to risk it if he didn't get it.


{Ed001's Note - bit of both. And that no one is as desperate as the Baggies were to match his wages.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 12:04:46
Cheers Ed001 for your swift reply. Keep up the great work.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

2.) 09 Aug 2018 13:03:04
Sturridge was a quality player - not just a speed merchant who could burst past people. His touch, his composure and his finishing were top quality. At no point did it make sense to me to pay his wages for him to play for someone else and I'm glad the club agreed.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 13:46:08
I like Sturridge for the reasons hjikle mentioned above but i cannot help but believe that it's just a matter of time until he gets a knock and spends 3 months on the treatment table again.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 15:22:58
Come on guys try to be positive and give him a chance. He's had a full pre-season and played in 9 games, scored 6 and assisted 2. I'm really hopeful he can be that proper Firmino backup striker we all crave and bang in 15-20 in all comps. It's more goals off the bench that we need to improve on last season and with Studge and Shaq I think we could have exactly that. Hopefully the midfielders can chip in with a few more as well and we can be reaching towards 100 in the league. After such a positive transfer window and preseason it's time to have faith and really believe in this squad. Roll on match day 1!



10 Jul 2018 13:28:20
One for Ed025 if he's around. Now that Pickford realises that he can cut it with the best do you think he will look for a move? wink wink.


{Ed025's Note - i am actually not his biggest fan to be honest verdo, i dont think he is commanding enough and he struggles with crosses, he also has a tendency to push the ball back into play when he makes a save but he is young and i think he can become a top keeper one day, his reflexes are excellent and his distribution second to none so maybe im being a bit harsh on him, but i cant see him leaving everton as he is on the up just like the peoples club and him and our club are destined for great things in the near future be very afraid..

1.) 10 Jul 2018 16:42:26
I like Pickford, I said last season I hoped we signed him before he joined Everton. I watched a lot of him at Preston and really liked what I saw, he isn’t the finished article but there seems to be a real lack of top keepers around at the moment and he seems one of the best coming through.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 16:08:00
Didnt you say that last season, think being on here is rubbing of on you as we keep saying this is our year lol.

{Ed025's Note - i say it every year of averages i will get it right one day mate.. :)

3.) 10 Jul 2018 16:26:44
Ed25, I agree with your assessment of Pickford's flaws and his strong points BUT you had me in stitches with this: "on the up just like the peoples club and him and our club are destined for great things in the near future mate. so be afraid. be very afraid. " How about you try to get some shots on target on a consistent basis before jumping to such extremes ok, Ed? Lol.

{Ed025's Note - its just around the corner heard it here first mate..

4.) 10 Jul 2018 16:44:51
I think you've got a good keeper ed025. I thought he was good before he signed for Everton, I've forgotten it was Sunderland or Borough? I've been swayed by opinion of him here and decided he wasn't all that but he is good. He is young, so young it's frightening. He could become one of the best.

Only 6ft but so was Ray clemence. As a striker I would be looking to capatalise on his parris but he makes up for it with fast reactions and high agility. Good keeper.

{Ed025's Note - a bit green yet but hopefully good times ahead for the lad PH..

5.) 10 Jul 2018 17:34:55
I love the sarcasm in your post Ed, top notch.

6.) 10 Jul 2018 18:41:12
Last time I was afraid of Everton was in 86,first trip to Wembley and my first live cup final. When Lineker opened the scoring you guys led until half time. Rusty settled my nerves in the second half, the rest is history, league and cup double.

Banter aside, I’ll never forget that day. At one point the whole stadium was singing” Merseyside “ and “ are you watching Manchester “
Imense ed25.

{Ed025's Note - i was there as well drogie, it seemed like i was the only blue in the liverpool end and when gary scored i was the only one around whooping and a hollering, not a hint of trouble though and even though it went tits up for us it was all off to the pub together singing songs and having a bloody great time, pity its not the same these days mate as the knuckle draggers seem to have spoilt all the fun..

7.) 10 Jul 2018 19:31:58
Totally agree mate.

8.) 11 Jul 2018 13:29:55
Thanks for your reply Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..

We have a fantastic team/ squad on paper but have nothing won yet. let's not get carried away. It will be interesting to see what the posts on here will be like if we dare to draw a few in a row or heaven forbid loose one.
Having said that I'm really looking forward to the season ahead but realise we can't win them all YNWA.
