There are a few reports linking Haaland to us (and every other top club)

Is there anything in the link Ed's? The lad looks like he is going to be a top player.


{Ed002's Note - You are right that there is significant interest in the player from a number of sides and there has been a discussion with another side already (Monday) but I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool. The kid needs to consider any move carefully and not end up on the bench - and I am not sure Liverpool can offer him a starting role.}

1.) 13 Nov 2019 21:41:58
It seeems that RB Salzburg to RB Leipzig is a well trodden path and i'd be surprised if that wasn't his next step.

2.) 13 Nov 2019 22:16:36
Seems like a good player but would be too soon for him to join.

3.) 13 Nov 2019 23:18:37
He seems like he would be a wise investment even if we purchased him now and had some well thought out loans for him.

4.) 13 Nov 2019 23:29:42
Let the boy at least finish his season!

5.) 14 Nov 2019 07:10:37
Way too soon for him, kid is talented but needs to consider his option wisely. His is signature would be a concern and set back for guys like Divock and Rhian in my opinion.

6.) 14 Nov 2019 08:17:03
He's going to Leipzig.

7.) 14 Nov 2019 09:56:35
I'm not sure you can put "Liverpool" and "Well thought out loans" in the same sentence.

8.) 14 Nov 2019 10:00:05
yeah I think he will go to Leipzig as a replacement Timo and no I don't think that means Timo Is coming here. But it would be a good move for the kid if that's how it works out.

9.) 14 Nov 2019 14:15:24
Reports on Time Talk that Werner has decided on Liverpool and is happy to be back up to front 3.

{Ed002's Note - So that leaves Mbappe as back up to Werner?}

10.) 14 Nov 2019 15:02:29
Leipzig would be a good move, replace Werner.

{Ed002's Note - Interestingly RBL has no declared interest but a discussion has been held with them about Haaland.}

11.) 14 Nov 2019 15:51:35
do they need to declare interest or is it just classified as relocating offices?

12.) 14 Nov 2019 20:44:35
I don’t see this player in a Klopp Liverpool team at all.

13.) 14 Nov 2019 21:21:09
I can see him ending up at United and ruining his career - hopefully his advisers are sensible and suggest that wouldn't be the best place at this stage!

14.) 14 Nov 2019 21:42:36
Napoli and AC Milan have interest apparantly.

15.) 14 Nov 2019 21:57:14
Like going to Liverpool to sit on the bench won't ruin his career to. Yeah Liverpool are playing good football at the moment. That doesn't mean every star or upcoming star player should automatically join Liverpool. Contrary to popular belief not every player wants to play for Liverpool.

16.) 15 Nov 2019 08:07:15
Never said he should come to Liverpool Yawn, the lad needs to go somewhere where he can play every week and get experience. I read elsewhere that United were very interested but that would be a terrible move, in my opinion, given the mess they are in at the moment.



28 Oct 2019 14:55:53
Ive just sen that Ho'over will miss Wednesdays game as he is away at the u17 World Cup.

Will any of our other youngsters miss the game due to the tournament?

Also when is Elliots ban up?


1.) 28 Oct 2019 18:30:13
I think he was banned for 14 days on 11th October. So, if it was effective from the day it was announced, he must be alright now!

2.) 30 Oct 2019 02:07:12
Elliot is OK

I’d like to see a squad of

Origi - Brewster - Elliott
Keita - Hendo - Ox
Larouci - Lovren - Gomez - Milner
Kelleher (although I’d probably rather Adrian)

Rests our forwards, Fabinho and VVD while still a good mix of youth, but experience in midfield and at CB

Curtis Jones to come on off the bench.



09 Aug 2019 13:31:38
Harry Wilson - Bournemouth
Marko Grujic - Hertha Berlin
Kamil Grabara - Huddersfield Town
Loris Karius - Besiktas
Sheyi Ojo - Rangers
Ben Woodburn - Oxford United
Liam Millar - Kilmarnock
Taiwo Awoniyi - Mainz
Nat Phillips - VfB Stuttgart
Ovie Ejaria - Reading (permanent at end of season)
Allan Rodrigues - Fluminense (to end of 2019)
Rhys Williams - Kidderminster Harriers (to January 2020)

Have I missed any?


1.) 09 Aug 2019 13:50:51
Adekanye to Lazio?

2.) 09 Aug 2019 13:56:04
That was a sale Riises.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 15:54:53
I think that's all of them. Portsmouth want Herbie Kane on loan, and their transfer window only closes on September 2nd, so I'd imagine that it will probably happen.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 16:36:34
has anyone heard anything recently about curtis jones or adam lewis going out on loan?

5.) 09 Aug 2019 18:05:34
Portsmouth is a great place to be, if I was Herbie Kane I'd be snapping their hand off.

{Ed025's Note - its not when its your turn in the barrel lord ha ha.. :)

6.) 09 Aug 2019 18:16:25
He should be at a higher level than league one.

7.) 09 Aug 2019 18:52:02
Southern Red. That will only be possible if he moves abroad.

Also, I expect Pompey to do well this season, plus they're also a step up from Doncaster Rovers. Why is a team going for promotion from League One better than a team not expecting to progress (or even fighting for survival) from The Championship?

8.) 09 Aug 2019 18:53:27
Also, The Southern Red. I forgot to add that Ben Woodburn has gone to League One on loan to Oxford United. Do you see Herbie Kane as ahead of Woodburn in their development?

9.) 09 Aug 2019 22:08:53
I do Kane proved himself last season, he should be playing at a higher level, whilst Woodburn is a great talent he hasn’t gad the experience yet.

10.) 10 Aug 2019 01:42:11
I used to live near Portsmouth, went to Fratton Park a lot. That's one hell of an atmosphere from 18,000 fans. Though I nearly got in a lot of trouble sat in the Fratton End when Torres scored a last minute winner in a 3-2, let's just say I was the only one cheering.



22 Jul 2019 22:22:20
What's the latest on Harvey Elliot Ed's?

He seemed imminent a few weeks ago but now all is quiet?
Has the deal hit a snag or are both sides just taking there time over finalising the move?


{Ed001's Note - there is no latest just relax it will take as long as it takes.}

1.) 22 Jul 2019 22:45:32
Thanks Ed 👍.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome. Youth transfers are not as straightforward as ones for the first team.}

2.) 23 Jul 2019 19:17:58
He has to arrive on a scholarship I believe from what I’ve read. My question is if he cannot sign pro forms yet is there possibility he comes to us, but is then snapped up by somewhere else on pro forms?

{Ed001's Note - that is always a problem with youth players.}



27 Apr 2019 18:28:49
Good evening Ed's,

Hope you are all well.

I have a friend who is an avid Fulham supporter and he is adamant that Liverpool have made contact over the return of Babel and the Babelcopter this summer.

I don't see it myself but in a support role to the front 3 stranger things have happened.

I just wondered if you lot had heard anything before I ask him "what is he smoking over there".


{Ed025's Note - strange one that carra, nothing this end on that one mate..

1.) 27 Apr 2019 19:15:09
Thanks Ed. I thought as much.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 27 Apr 2019 21:32:14
Not that I know any better but that sounds like absolute nonsense to me.

3.) 28 Apr 2019 06:43:50
Not that I expect it to be true but fair play to the lad he’s put in some decent performances for Fulham since he joined them, far better than I was expecting. Sure another prem club will look to take him.

4.) 28 Apr 2019 11:12:28
Perhaps he’s being bought in to fly the Babelcoptor in the summer.

5.) 28 Apr 2019 16:57:27
Loan update?

09 Aug 2019 19:29:27
Ed's/ reds - Lovren is not in the squad for tonight and also wasn't included for the community shield.

Do we think he will be gone before the European window closes?


{Ed001's Note - he was in the squad for the Shield.}

1.) 09 Aug 2019 19:38:08
Klopp isn't stupid to leave the team with 3 cbs with 2 extra cups up for grabs this year.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 19:47:25
So he was Ed! I had obviously had one to many at the game and missed it.

@adam with Fabinho Hoever and Berg we have cover for cb if needed.
I wouldn’t like to see him go but he’s 31 and now and our 4th choice. He might not want to stick about.

I’m not pretending to be in the know I just wouldn’t be shocked if he went.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 19:49:04
Lovren, Lallana and Brewster being out of the match day squad probably shows there place in the squad. Lovren is this clearly 4th choice CB, Lallana is 7th choice in midfield and Brewster 6th choice. It’s interesting to note that only Clyne and Kent are the only other “senior” players in the squad missing out apart from Lovren, Lallana and Brewster.

4.) 10 Aug 2019 03:59:06
The real AG. The fact that lovren, lallana and Brewster couldn't make the squad shows a level of strenght. Our 18 man squad was so strong that they were ommited, that's 21 'first team' players without any of our teenage prospects in consideration. That's decent depth in my eyes, we had a strong bench to be fair. Was a time lallana and lovren were in our best 11, now they can't make the bench, shows how we've improved over the last season or 2.



03 Jul 2019 03:29:47
Couldn't sleep so ended up watching the second half of Brazil v Argentina.

Brazil have just won 2-0 with bobby scoring one and getting an assist for the other.
This puts him as the joint top scorer in the tournament and he is also tied for most assists.

Allison kept another clean sheet which means he has now won the golden glove even if he concedes in the final.

He is the first player to hold the golden glove for 3 major tournaments at the same time (prem, champs league and copa) .

Success breeds success so hopefully the boys win the final on Sunday.

And the best part is Brazil are achieving all this without the overrated Neymar ????.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 05:23:44
Is nancy neymar injured?

2.) 03 Jul 2019 05:36:52
Got injured in the build up to the tournament and is out for a few months I think.

3.) 03 Jul 2019 07:27:54
Good. I know its a bit out of order but i can't stand the guy. I don't understand these teams who are run by their so called best player. Neymar picks the team. In the world cup he wanted jesus to start over bobby. Didn't score a single goal. Firmino was brought on a few times and scored goals, was involved in their ticky tacky football that created chances.

Messi is the same at Barcelona and Argentina. Why bother with a manager? Its ridiculous.

Id love two of our best players to come back with ANOTHER massive medal. Confidence through the roof.

Its amazing the way klopp improves players. Even Becker! A goalie. He is a better keeper than he was this time last year. We're going to win the league, i can feel it in my bones.

{Ed025's Note - where have i heard that before? and salah need to set up house together...and adopt a unicorn.. :)

4.) 03 Jul 2019 08:00:57
'We're going to win the league' You beat me to it this year Robbie but I'm with you mate lol :) .

5.) 03 Jul 2019 08:27:56
Bit early for all that we haven't even kicked a ball yet, take each day as it comes let's not create pressure before the league has even started, teams are spending big amounts too compete if they get it right any of top 6 could do damage.

6.) 03 Jul 2019 09:21:01
3rd of July and there's rubbish being spouted about next seasons league already. Unbelievable.

7.) 03 Jul 2019 10:41:08
Hahaha believe!

8.) 03 Jul 2019 11:49:44
Of course there's speculation about next season irish. Its only a few weeks away now. And having won the European Cup we should be looking at winning the league again. Klopp is fantastic, i love watching our football. Its so exciting. We have the quality and heart to beat any team, any time.

I did there'd be a big signing or two. Liverpool do sign players on deadline day - Aoc. But on the other hand, why tinker with such a brilliant team?

9.) 03 Jul 2019 09:00:29
Must have heard it when England wom the world cup ed!

{Ed025's Note - you probably did liverbird, but england have actually won the world cup whereas liverpool have not actually won the prem...thats the difference mate.. :)

10.) 03 Jul 2019 09:21:48
Yeah yeah ed025. But THIS time its different. We genuinely have a team capable of winning the league. 97 points. That is pretty amazing. Unbelievable that it wasn't enough to win the league though. Fair play to city, they done us at the etihad and that was the difference. And pep knew it, that's why they were so defensive at anfield. He knew it would go to the wire.

Hope you're well ed025, have the blues made any big signings? Secured gomes, who's the holding player in your team? I like siggurdson, was a good signing for you lot, i thought he would be a Barcelona target or a Man Utd target, still to see the best of him but he doesn't seem to be improving.

{Ed025's Note - no big signings for us yet robbie but we will be dabbling in the market thats for sure mate, just one were miles the better team at anfield mate and could and should have won by a wide margin..



09 May 2019 12:45:58
I work with 2 spurs fans and a city fan. These next few weeks could be amazing for me or end in absolute torture.


1.) 09 May 2019 13:23:16
We’re competing on both fronts mate, even if we lose them both it’s still awesome to be in the running with the prospect of future successes. For the first time in decades I feel we have a team that should compete for years.

2.) 09 May 2019 13:58:57

And as long as we win 1 of the 2 then I should be ok :)

There is also a Utd fan in the office but he is no longer aloud to join in with any banter. We were thinking of getting a Burnley fan in so he has someone to talk to.

3.) 09 May 2019 14:12:14
aoe how can it be awesome if we lose both? I just don't get that we have to win cl, there can be no excuses.

4.) 09 May 2019 15:02:29
Do your spurs fans think they’re a bigger club than us? Mine do! Hopefully we can prove them wrong.

5.) 09 May 2019 15:08:49
I work with a Spurs fan who has a birthday on June 1.

6.) 09 May 2019 15:18:38
@lerchy to be fair to them they are not to bad but if they win they will think they are the best ever.

The mindset of the fans is different I think. Us Pool fans are now in a state of mind where we 'Have to Win' Whereas Spurs are just happy to make it that far 'like us last year'.

These mindsets are an example of where the two clubs currently are and I think it will give us an edge going into the final

@stone hopefully he has a terrible birthday :)

7.) 09 May 2019 15:31:57
We have the experience carra so hopefully that sees us through, we definitely shouldn’t underestimate them that’s for sure.

Nice to see you around too mate, I ain’t seen you do you’re loan reports in a while I thought they were excellent and always looked forward to them.

8.) 09 May 2019 16:06:31
lerchy - they're confusing 'stadium' for 'club'.

I live in London and you see more Liverpool fans than Spurs around here.

9.) 09 May 2019 16:12:40
I didn’t actually say it would be awesome to lose both mark. I was pointing out that it’s awesome we are competing in both competitions. My point was in reply to carra’s post of what would happen in the event that we lost both.

10.) 09 May 2019 16:22:02
@lerchy - i've been stupidly busy with work, traveling a lot etc etc and time just got away from me. Im more settled again now but its the end of the season.
As long as life remains settled i will try to start them up again next season.

11.) 09 May 2019 16:25:35
😂 I live down south too mate I know exactly what you mean!

One of my good friends seems to think the bale/ Maicon incident makes spurs a bigger and better club than us, bearing in mind I haven’t seen Spurs lift and meaningful trophy’s in my time. Bless his deluded socks.

12.) 09 May 2019 16:41:18
I think they’re about to get a terrible land when Pochettino leaves. Wonder will it be this season after a hopefully disappointing end.

13.) 09 May 2019 16:52:14
ok aoe no worries. It is great to be in the final again but this one we have to win.

14.) 09 May 2019 20:53:44
I think the fact that even Poch said ‘it’s a miracle to get to a champions league final with this club’ tells you that even their current manager knows where they really are in the pecking order.



27 Feb 2019 14:21:44
Hi Eds,

I sent you the loan update last week and this week however it does not appear that either one got posted?

I just wanted to check that my messages are coming through?


{Ed033's Note - the loan update you submitted today is on the rumour page. The last loan update that we received was on 14 Feb.

1.) 28 Feb 2019 03:50:19
carra i think it is better to be on rumours page, especially out of transfer window. your updates deserve to be on the main page longer, it will be drowned imo if its on the banter page. appreciate the updates my man.

2.) 28 Feb 2019 04:09:24
Agreed zed, thanks carra.



31 Jan 2019 08:30:13
I think playing away to West Ham will actually do us some good.
You could feel the anxiety in the ground last night, you won't get that away from home.
+ as the home side West Ham will need to attack more than Leicester did which will leave us space to play in.

Leicester are a counter attacking team. Last night due to sickness/ injuries we played with no DM and a very attack minded front 6. It left us open for Leicester to counter which added to the nerves and didn't give us game control.
At 1-0 up in the first half the game was end to end when it didn't need to be. Hendo or fab in the middle would of slowed the pace down and kept us sensibly in control. We would of seen the half out for the final minute instead of getting caught on the counter and giving a way a stupid foul which lead to a goal.

Milner and Fabinho will be back for the West Ham game so I expect Hendo and fab in the middle so we control things

Just my thoughts.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 13:00:34
Good read carra, I actually disagree though.

Arnautovic now has something to prove
West Ham always raise their game against the big teams
We are not playing with any fluency or confidence at the minute.
This feels like a potential banana skin to me 😕.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 13:14:56
100% - it is not an easy game.

West Ham away is always a tricky game I just think you will get a more natural performance from our boys unlike the anxious rushed performance we saw last night.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 18:18:52
Upton Park used to be a hard place to go. 30.000 mental psychos right next to the pitch. The London stadium has made it an easier fixture.

As for arnautovic, vvd is designed to deal with his type. I'm not worried. Actually think they could be in for a thumping. We e haven't had a 5 0 for a while.

4.) 31 Jan 2019 18:19:53
Ron I believe Arnautovic is injured. Regardless I fully expect us to beat them.

5.) 31 Jan 2019 18:33:21
I know it's often said but there will be no easy games in the run in. Like Leicester last night they are a good side. Crystal palace at the start of the season I thought these are a decent side and at Anfield they proved they are no mugs. Teams aren't going to roll over and give us the points, we need to fight for every one. We won't win every game and I doubt city will go unbeaten, lots of twists and turns to come. Don't know if my finger nails can handle it. Come on red men.

6.) 31 Jan 2019 18:47:07
Ron is arnautovic even going to be fit to play against us didn't look good for him last night going of mind?

7.) 31 Jan 2019 19:40:02
Ron, Not fussed with Arnautovic cos he is inconsistent and seems to pick the games he wants to actually play and do well in. WH have been receiving thumpings of late and Pello does not park the bus cos well, he is simply NOT good at it and if he does then we will have to deal with it. We are not playing with fluency cos we have our midfielders playing at CB and RB cos half the defence is injured. Not being fluent is normal under such circumstances, mind you YET we are able to rise above these issues and pick up points which at this stage, is the MOST important thing. In fact, I see that as a quality cos the ability to rise above such issues shows the mental make up of this team, something City simply are unable to do at this time even tho they have NO injuries.

{Ed025's Note - you need to stop having a pop at city redwolf and concentrate on liverpool my old mate..

8.) 31 Jan 2019 21:27:51
Ed25, what's your beef? I spoke the truth to power about City. The truth should never be an insult, man. Believe that! Cheers, mate.

{Ed025's Note - i just think your better than having cheap shots at citys expense redwolf, liverpool are doing very nicely and that should be the priority of all the posters imo rather than worry about how other teams are doing..thats all im saying my friend..

9.) 31 Jan 2019 23:02:19
I agree Carra. As soon as Fab came on I thought we had control of the game, up to that point we were vulnerable. He should start every game when fit. I also think it is no coincidence that we look shakier at the back since Matip has been playing he does everything so slowly. TAA Gomez and as well as Milner back shortly will strenghten us. Also for me Shaqiri and keita should not start together it is one or the other. IMO it is a waste of time bringing on Sturridge I would much rather Origi for the last ten minutes.

Hi Ed,

You have previously stated that LFC have an interest in Dael Fry.
If LFC were to purchase Carlos would that conclude our interest in Fry or are the two unrelated?
I ask as they both play the same position, although Fry is younger and homegrown so perhaps seen as more of an investment for the future?


{Ed002's Note - I would not try and confuse the proposal to sign a first pick centre back with interest in the likes of Fry, White and others.}

With Lallana and Milner leaving next summer I think that will be the moment Jones will get the chance to step up. There are to many players fighting for those midfield roles to see him getting a chance this season.

Thats true ed. My point was he was never going to change his style when he faced us with a place in the champs league final at stake.


{Ed001's Note - no he certainly wasn't. Horrible man, so glad he is not with us any more.}

Suarez played exactly how I expected him to play v us, that’s how he has played his whole career.

He is a win at all costs type of player and he was loved for it at anfield so that wasn’t going to change in a champions league semi final.


{Ed001's Note - he was loved by some for it. Please do not label us all as loving him for his cheating, most of us hated that about him. It was his skill, hard work and goals most loved, not that horrible attitude.}

As a player and coach Klopp has never left a job before his contract is up. At Mainz he saw his contract through + the few extensions he signed, and the same for his time at Dortmund. He will see his extension through to the end it is the type of man he is.

Also he is quoted as saying a large part of his managerial ability is down to communication, he can only speak German and English fluently and therefore has pretty much ruled out ever managing in Italy or Spain.

After us he will either end up as the German national team manager or a TV pundit. Whilst a player at Mainz he moonlighted working in the local TV studio as his wage wasn’t big enough and he was building towards a career for life after he stopped playing.

I think Chirevella might of just got a few bigger clubs looking at him then those he was previously linked with. Very composed performance.
