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?



19 Mar 2019 14:39:20
Good Afternoon Eds,

There are reports linking Liverpool with Pascal Gross and I was wondering if there was any truth to them?

I live in Brighton and in my opinion he is one of a few stand out players in what is a pretty average Brighton side.

His Goal and assist ratio has been pretty decent throughout his career and I am sure his numbers would be higher if Brighton were not such a defensive team. Although I am not convinced he is at Liverpools level just now.


{Ed002's Note - This was from a few months ago and I am pretty sure Liverpool has not made any approach to Brighton for Gross. I suspect it is the same story being repeated.}

1.) 19 Mar 2019 15:47:49
Thanks Ed.

2.) 19 Mar 2019 20:09:43
That required me to re-read the OP

Initially, one awful moment, it read:

“There are reports linking Liverpool with CHRISTIAN Gross”

And breathe.

3.) 19 Mar 2019 22:59:20
Another fellow brightonian LFC supporter here!
Not sure he has shown enough to make the jump to a side like ours Carra.



27 Feb 2019 19:25:13
After a short quiet spell the Liverpool Loanees were back to their best at the weekend, much like we are hoping the RedMen are tonight!

Danny Ings continues to miss out through injury and Southampton will be desperate to have him back as soon as possible as they sit in the bottom 3 of the Premier League.

Adam Bogdan and Sheyi Ojo were both unused at the weekend. Meanwhile Pedro Chirivella's loan spell at Extremadura ended before it had even begun as registration problems have left the Spaniard unable to play.

Awoniyi is back at Mouscron and back to his best as his red hot streak in-front of goal continues.

In his 6th game for the club Awoniyi notched his 5th goal, a second half strike that sealed a 1-0 victory against Lokeren.

Since his return Awoniyi has scored 5 goals including 3 match winners. He has also notched 2 assists. Jurgen Klopp are you watching.

Ejaria was back in the Reading starting line up this weekend after recovering from illness as The Royals faced Rotherham in the Sky Bet Championship.

And it was a dream return for the youngster as he hit a sweet half volley to put Reading 1-0 up. Unfortunately the Royals could not hold onto the lead as the game finished 1-1 but it was good to see Ejaria back to his best after a frustrating campaign.

Rangers played twice last week. The first was a 5-0 victory over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup. The second was a 5-0 victory over Hamilton in the league.

Ryan Kent was central to these victories playing both games and notching 2 assists in the process.

Since the season restarted after the Winter Break Kent has notched 4 assists and 2 goals as he looks to finish the season on a high.

Allan Rodrigues made his first appearance for Fluminense this weekend as he looks to kick start his season after a difficult start.

The midfielder made his first bow for the club coming on as a second half sub as Fluminense beat Bangu 2-0.

Hertha Berlin faced Bayern Munch this weekend with Grujic looking to make his mark against Liverpool's Champions League opponents.

Despite a lively display in midfield Grujic was unable to prevent Hertha falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat. He will be hoping his parent club will fare better at the Allianz Arena in a few weeks time.

Grabara conceded his first goals for AGF a the weekend and with those goals came his first defeat as AGF lost 2-1 to Midtjylland.

Clyne continued his impressive form for Bournemouth at Right Back as he made his fifth appearance for the club at the weekend.

Bournemouth faced Wolves in the Premier League and Clyne produced a typically solid display as the game finished 1-1.

The ever present Herbie Kane made his 38th appearance of the season at the weekend for Doncaster as the Dons faced Scunthorpe in a local derby.

Kane produced a solid performance and played the full 90 as the game finished 1-1.

Young Liam Millars wait for a start continued this weekend as yet again he found himself warming the bench for Kilmarnock.

He did however get a late run out as Kilmarnock lost 1-0 to Livingstone.

There were two reds in action on Monday night as Wilson's Derby faced Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands Derby.

Karius was also in action for Besiktas as they faced Fenerbace in the Istanbul Derby.

Unfortunately it was a frustrating evening for both as Wilson put in an ineffective performance, got booked and finally subbed in the 70th minute as Derby lost to Forest 1-0.

Meanwhile Fenerbache pulled off an 'Istanbul Moment' in Istanbul as they come from 3-0 down at half time to eventually draw 3-3 with Besiktas leaving Karius and his team mates extremely frustrated.

And that's your lot :)


1.) 28 Feb 2019 05:34:53
I appreciate your work carragold, but it wouldn't be remiss for you to cite thisisanfield. com, which is surely your source for these updates. Thanks!

2.) 28 Feb 2019 06:28:43
Cheers carra.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 09:14:40
Carra, fantastic update as ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter whether Professor Klopp is keeping an eye on Awoniyi, the player is as far away from a work permit as the day he arrived.

Neither Awoniyi, Allan Rodrigues or Arroyo will ever play for our club as a few minutes on the Gov. UK website will confirm. Sad but true.

4.) 28 Feb 2019 11:02:56
Apparently Clyne scored a couple of crackers the weekend we played Bournemouth.

5.) 28 Feb 2019 13:18:02
Big love dude thanks x.

6.) 01 Mar 2019 09:23:29
Hi Ed’s in terms of Danny Ings as Carra points out he Misses’s out again through injury, what sort of impacts would his injuries have on his deal going through in the summer. Obviously when for he walks into their team but did they have any sort of clause put in where he has to be available for a certain percentage of games of anything for them to have to purchase Ings or are they able to pull out of the deal?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - They have a commitment to buy, but obviously if there is a major issue it can be reviewed.}

7.) 03 Mar 2019 09:56:24
Thanks carra 😘

Reading won 1-2 btw 😉.

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.

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.

Didn’t Kuyt play as a wing back for Holland at one of the world cups under lvg?

He has the engine to get up down the wings and could hit a decent cross as well.

Klopp would love a player like him and like he does with Milner I am sure he would of used him in various roles.
