Morning eds.

Do Leeds United still hold an interest in Harry Wilson?



{Ed002's Note - Harry Wilson (RW) Leeds have preferred options who are more versatile now - but Wilson may be more obtainable.}

1.) 09 Jun 2021 11:29:08
If he's looked at as too lazy for us surely bielsa will have no interest.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 12:55:04
Let’s hope he has a storming euros!

3.) 09 Jun 2021 16:35:03
Remember when certain players would have 1/ 2 good games in big international comps and suddenly be the next best thing. make a big move and then be rubbish?

4.) 09 Jun 2021 18:31:22
I'm sure no teams would ever do that, it would just be Diuof-t.

Diao see what I did there? ;-)

Hi Eds,

Have Liverpool signed Ghana U20 star Fatawu Abdul Issahaku?



{Ed002's Note - Abdul Fatawu Issahaku (AM/W) Bayer Leverkusen are moving very carefully and slowly to avoid any breach of FIFA rules as the player is represented illegally by an agent due to his age and the have already spoken with FIFA, UEFA and DFB about being able to complete a transfer. It has been made clear that any direct dealings with the agent could result in serious repercussions and this has made the also interested Borussia Dortmund step back as they think that they would be in direct breach of FIFA rules. There is a potential exemption that Bayer Leverkusen could claim. The interest of Liverpool has been mentioned before but not how they would propose to complete any transfer. Servette and Rapid Vienna have been showing an interest and talking with his club but Bayer Leverkusen have had him training with their squad and need DfB approval for an exemption and they should be able to complete the transfer.}

1.) 30 May 2021 22:16:55
What would Liverpool need to do within the rules of course, to complete such a deal?

{Ed002's Note - Wait until he is 18.}

2.) 31 May 2021 06:03:58
The news back at home in Ghana is that he has signed for Liverpool and that medical stool place last Friday in Germany. Anyway let’s see how this news develops today. We are waiting to hear from the owner of the club.

3.) 31 May 2021 03:02:27
Ed02.can we actually sign him? He is under 18 years right?

{Ed002's Note - I have answered that.}

4.) 31 May 2021 09:49:48
He will join after March when he will be 18 years. So for all intents and purposes, we will only see him in Liverpool colours during 2022/ 23 season. Serious potential! A member of the Black Stars at the age of 17. No mean feat.

5.) 31 May 2021 13:42:56
Respected African Football journalist James Nalton reports that he will be joining Sporting Lisbon on loan next season and a work permit should be a formality when he turns 18 in March.

If anyone hasn't seen any clips, have a look!

6.) 31 May 2021 14:23:00
He looks handy. Scored 8 and assisted 5 in the first 13 games of his debut season! Looks powerful and has a good touch. Cracking bit of business if confirmed.

7.) 31 May 2021 17:01:47
Are we allowed to sign him and loan him out till he is 18?

{Ed002's Note - obviously not.}

8.) 01 Jun 2021 15:24:29
Ghana attacker Abdul Fatawu Issahaku is headed to Portugal for a loan spell with Sporting Lisbon.

The deal with the Portuguese side follows Issahaku’s five-year deal with English giants, Liverpool, which was agreed on Saturday evening.

Prior to that, the exciting young winger seemed bound to sign with Bundesliga outfit, Bayer Leverkusen, but that move fell through, handing Liverpool the chance to take the player to Anfield.

The loan deal between the three parties has no certain time limit, with Liverpool indicating the player will undergo development in Portugal until he can play for the Reds in the English Premier League.

The agreement with Sporting does not only serve the football interests of Liverpool, but also the player’s growth. Besides offering him further development, the winger will have otherwise struggled to secure a work permit in England after only turning 17 in March.

The young star is, however, expected back in Ghana as the Black Stars prepare for friendlies with Morocco and South Africa.



24 May 2021 16:09:51
Hi eds

Is it true that Liverpool are keen on signing Carney Chukwuemeka, from Aston Villa?



{Ed002's Note - Carney Chukwuemeka (CM) Aston Villa will do all they can to keep the player amid interest from Manchester City, Juventus, Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich.}



18 Mar 2021 19:53:03
Evening eds.

Could Liverpool make the Kabak deal perm in the summer and still go ahead with signing another CB ( Konate) depending on money of course. Or is it, one or the other?



{Ed002's Note - It would depend who leaves - Konate would be a starter. If Gomez were sold (and I think it will be tough to find a buyer after a season largely injured) and other funds could be found it may well be possible.}

1.) 18 Mar 2021 21:21:16
Do you think Liverpool would be open to letting Gomez leave, if the right offer came along?

2.) 19 Mar 2021 07:30:38
It's either Kabak or another CB, not both. VVD, Gomez, Matip, Phillips and Kabak/ new CB will have to do for now especially with funds being limited.

3.) 19 Mar 2021 08:06:56
Matip needs to be sold he’s too injury prone to be relied upon.

{Ed077's Note - agreed

4.) 19 Mar 2021 09:07:38
Genuine question: what club in their right mind is going to pay a transfer fee, or any significant level of salary, for Matip right now? We would be looking for someone willing to buy him before he's played a match in his return after his latest long-term injury, and willing to ignore that he has barely been able to put two consecutive matches together for the last two years, and has had multiple long term injuries and shorter term niggles.

Nothing against Matip, I really like him as a player and think he's a very good centre-half when he's free of injury but I don't understand why anybody would factor him into the consideration when talking about player sales and raising funds for new signings. Sadly I think it's one of those cases where he stays with us for the remainder of his contract and we take the view that if we ever get a long period where he's free of injuries, it's a bonus. And if he does ever get over the injury problems, we probably wouldn't want to sell him anyway because he'd be one of our best defenders.

5.) 19 Mar 2021 10:12:12
Exactly, RR, nobody will take a risk on him, and equally true is why would Matip, who earns 100,000 a week at Anfield, and is contracted until 2024, agree to leave? He’s staying put. The one good thing about him is that when he returns from injury he is immediately operating at a very high level straight away. He’s incredible, I’ve never seen a player like him, just slots straight back in like he hasn’t been away. One of the best center backs in the Prem, hope he gets an injury-free run next year, what a bonus that would be!

6.) 19 Mar 2021 11:43:20
Can't we sell matip and sign both? 🤔🤔makes more sense than selling gomez🤔.

7.) 19 Mar 2021 11:45:54
Konate does look great, but you want to replace Matip who is injury prone in your eyes with another injury prone player?

Matip - 396 days missed due to injury so far since 16/ 17 season
Konate - 405 days missed due to injury so far since 17/ 18 season

CB options next year will be VVD, JG, JM, OK Phillips will be sold as will Davies.

8.) 19 Mar 2021 12:16:13
Yikes! I knew Konate had injury issues, but diving deep on that, that's really ugly. Looks like he's missed considerable time with muscle issues, and some guys just have a physiological structure that makes them prone to them.

I think Matip is great in a reserve role, you just can't put too much stress on his body without risking injury. I think LFC is in a better spot not having both him and Gomez in the lineup, but as mentioned above, either will be difficult to sell because of the injury issues this season.

9.) 19 Mar 2021 16:18:40
Matip one of the best center backs in the premiership? Really?
Slits straight back in? Again really?
I’ll agree when fit he’s a good player but I’ll emphasise when fit. Unfortunately he’s too injury prone to take up a squad place in my opinion.

10.) 19 Mar 2021 16:46:53
Wouldnt be surprised at all to see both Joe and Joel still here next season. Think Kabak added to them and Virg and "when fit" we will have a very very good CB four. I know joe/ joel have their injuries but we shouldn't be expecting a year like this one injury-wise every season.

11.) 19 Mar 2021 18:03:25
“just can't put too much stress on his body without risking injury“. Matip pulls a hamstring tying up his laces.

This season has shown you cannot rely upon Matip, not as a reserve and not as a regular starter. He’s just too injury prone.

12.) 19 Mar 2021 19:59:32
Gomez’s injuries have all been serious ones, you can’t compare him to matip at all. Matip gets injured in hay fever season!

13.) 20 Mar 2021 00:40:47
Matip is one of the best cb’s Klopp knows this and seems to favour him. We stuck by some players over the years who seemed to be prone to injury ( gerrard had back problems, Owen and his strings etc) no one called to have them flogged. Gomez may not get injured tripping over his cat but when he does it’s a serious injury seems to be out for months on end. He is no more reliable than Joel imo. You can all sit here hoping to buy and sell till the cows come home but let me be the voice of reason even if we win the champions league and finish top 4 there will be NO significant investment. All these Mbappe etc rumours are just agent’s using us to broker deals elsewhere. FSG knew we needed defensive cover for months watched us drop like lead cos of it yet waited until the last day to bring in players of potential not established. Just be hopeful joe and Joel can stay fit and that vvd comes back on the same level because they are cavalry .

{Ed0666's Note - I bet you we spend big money on a Centre back in the summer. £100 to the charity of the winners choosing? Let me go on record as say I’m not an ITK My charity is Make a wish foundation. What say you?

14.) 20 Mar 2021 11:14:06
Ok Ed666 I’m game I’ll honour that 👍 what are we deeming “ big money”? I support Alder hey and Cancer research .

{Ed0666's Note - fantastic buddy. I appreciate it. Two fantastic charities you’ve chosen by the way and it’s game on. ‘Big Money’ is a free transfer lol no only joking. We are in a midst of a pandemic so normal spending is gonna be curtailed would you be happy with say a transfer over £30 million for a centre back deemed as a big outlay?

15.) 20 Mar 2021 13:47:10
Let’s hope it isn’t £29.99! Ed I am assuming you’ve said £30m as you know konate’s release clause.

{Ed0666's Note - would love is to sign konate for 29.99 unfortunately mate he’s so injury prone I’m not sure that price would even constitute a good deal

16.) 20 Mar 2021 15:59:46
It makes no logical sense keeping two injury prone centre backs and as good as Matip is, he’s just not worth keeping on. Gomez could “grow out” of his injury issues, like Gerrard did as he got older with some careful planning and the correct physiotherapy, but Matip is knocking 30 so it’s not going to get better anytime soon.

17.) 20 Mar 2021 14:19:08
Ed666 I was hoping for £35 million but seeing has it’s for charity no probs. good luck btw I’d rather be out of pocket and happy ( new signing) so half hoping you win.

{Ed0666's Note - Let’s meet half way my friend and agree to £32.5 million. How’s that sound?

18.) 21 Mar 2021 11:53:40
Brilliant ed666.

{Ed0666's Note - the bet is on scouse...good luck mate

19.) 21 Mar 2021 12:23:28
If someone with a bit more time and expertise than me managed to set this up as a fund raiser, I reckon we could all join in, have a laugh and raise a bit of money for charity over the next few months.
I haven’t got a hundred quid to spare, but I’d put a fiver on us spending less than £32.5m.

{Ed0666's Note - Great idea Manc. Anyone like to take the lead on this one and get it organized. Think of the karma points you’d get.



04 Mar 2021 14:27:42
Ed002 if you are about,

Would love to see Haaland at Liverpool, but know it's not likely to happen. But what are your thoughts on his development since leaving RBS and what would he bring to a team like Liverpool, as opposed to what we have already?



{Ed002's Note - He has pretty much just kept on scoring at the same level and I guess clubs are looking at him to continue doing the same beyond the Bundesliga. Liverpool do not use a player of his ilk so they would need to adapt but there has been no interest shown in him. There remains a good chance he will move this summer but I think it most unlikely it will be to Liverpool.}

1.) 04 Mar 2021 19:27:08
Ed2, am I right in thinking Chelsea are one of the clubs interested in Haaland and are able to offer a suitable package in terms of wages, agent and transfer fees?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but I would not expect him to move to Chelsea.}

2.) 05 Mar 2021 00:38:50
Haaland will never play in a Liverpool shirt. I’d bet my house on that. We don’t have the money to be in the conversation.

Question for Ed002 if he is about.

Will Liverpool pay the Konate fee in full or is it to be spread out?



{Ed002's Note - I won't know until the TMS is updated.}

1.) 28 May 2021 14:57:46
OK thanks.

2.) 28 May 2021 16:20:11
Ed002 if it’s over so many years I bet the fee will be higher than the termination clause like the extra we paid for Jota.



22 Apr 2021 22:38:09
Good evening eds,

Has anybody ever shown any real interest, in buying LFC from FSG?



{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 22 Apr 2021 23:51:19
Wasn't Amanda Staveley representing people interested in buying LFC at one point or am I mistaken?

{Ed0666's Note - Yes she was D.I.C

2.) 23 Apr 2021 01:44:28
No need for name calling Ed0666😃.

{Ed0666's Note - touché Barry, that proper made me chuckle 😂

3.) 23 Apr 2021 10:40:10
I'd like to know which three clubs were joining the twelve - keeping an extremely low profile I should imagine. Also which five clubs were expecting invitations.

{Ed002's Note - Three clubs declined to be involved.}

4.) 23 Apr 2021 11:23:52
I believe one of the clubs was Tranmere. The ESL wanted to two biggest clubs on Merseyside to be involved. I can also confirm that my Sunday league team was another. We would have made a few quid but we all work so couldn’t fly to Spain or Italy for a weeknight game each week.



21 Apr 2021 07:18:26
Good morning eds.

Do you see any way back for FSG at Liverpool, with regards to getting the fans back on side or was this ESL nonsense, the last straw?



{Ed001's Note - defo last straw for most.}

1.) 21 Apr 2021 08:53:16
It is going to be a heavy lift for FSG to gain any semblance of trust back from the fanbase. All the best to them cos they are going to need every ounce of it.

{Ed077's Note - do you still want them to run/own LFC. It's not the first time they have gone against what the club stands for.



20 Apr 2021 11:04:50
Hi eds,

Can you see FSG coming out with anything with regards to the ESL?

Why they are doing it, what they hope to achieve?



{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt it.}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 12:27:16
It is a PR disaster right now and in these times, best to lay low.



18 Apr 2021 18:36:10
Hi eds,

Would there be any positives in joining a breakaway league?


{Ed002's Note - Yes. There would be higher quality matches, more income for the club, the opportunities for supporters to visit other cities more often ... it would be a new paradigm.}

1.) 18 Apr 2021 19:02:13
I think the last 13 months has shown us how important atmosphere and fans are to football. Places like Palace and Sheff Utd away where the place does be hopping. These games between "superpowers"wont replicate that, and half of them will end up like the lifeless pre-season friendlies we see in pre-season. Not 2 mention that basically zero fans actually want this. I find it hard enuf trying to get over to Liverpool to watch us, i've no interest in trying to get over to Turin or Barcelona to do it.

2.) 18 Apr 2021 19:22:16
With the greatest of respect Ed2, it’s a stretch to suggest that one of the benefits is the opportunity for fans to visit other cities more often, unless there is going to be subsidised travel. C.V. permitting, we’re all free to go wherever we want to anyway.

{Ed002's Note - Why would there be subsidised travel? Right now the fans would perhaps not visit somewhere like Milan - this will give them a reason to.}

3.) 18 Apr 2021 19:27:59
No a fan of the idea myself.
I also think FIFA and specially UEFA will do their utmost to stop it by banning players from internationals or something like that, though you will see a hell of a lot of players following the $$$$$ regardless.
They will likely suck up all the TV money meaning a lot of small clubs around Europe going out of business.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the ramifications but you seem to be dealing with this like it is so-me thing new and agreed. The reality is that change and progression will come and common sense is that a solution needs to be found that is the best for those concerned.}

4.) 18 Apr 2021 20:30:10
I could be wrong, probably am, but it seems to me that over the years the regular blue collar fan has been priced out of going to premier league matches. With this new format, only the very wealthy will be able to afford to go to the matches. I hate the idea. I'm all for progress, but there has to be a better way. Maybe guarantee Champions League for clubs who have won 5 or more, I don't know. But I understand Ed's point about it giving fans more opportunities to visit other cities to support their clubs, but again, there has to be a better way.

5.) 18 Apr 2021 20:35:12
Gary Neville just gets better. Hated him as a player best pundit by a country mile. Your view point Ed2 is embarrassing.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why you think my view is embarrassing but am happy to delete all further posts on the subject on the Liverpool page.}

6.) 18 Apr 2021 20:48:34
Plus it would get rid of the incompetent refs we have and help destroy the corrupt fifa and uefa.

7.) 18 Apr 2021 20:45:45
Please don't do that. Your opinion and knowledge are top class. Some need to understand its an opinion in which all are entitled to have

Matt in FL.

{Ed002's Note - Seemingly not Matt. You can go to some other club pages and the European pages where I will answer questions on the subject. It is easier to simply delete questions about it here rather than further embarrass myself.}

8.) 18 Apr 2021 20:53:34
So many questions Ed002 and I don’t know where to start!

Do you think that the clubs who have put their names ho this have done it to give themselves more leverage in putting forward their own demands for reform to UEFA and their respective domestic leagues?

What sort of timescale would there be for this to happen?

Do you think the clubs involved may face sanctions from FIFA, UEFA and their domestic associations?

Do you think there’s any reason that Man City were not included in this?

Most importantly, what’s your opinion on this?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am an embarrassment so I am deleting the questions on the Liverpool page - but you can ask on the Manchester United, Chelsea or European pages.}

9.) 18 Apr 2021 20:55:18
I loath the idea to be honest.
I love a big game against the likes of Barcelona but that’s because it’s a special occasion that doesn’t happen all that often, playing all the time against these big sides would be a novelty that would soon wear off.
Plus we all love football but we love the banter between fans just as much, if not more, nothing better than ripping the Everton fans at work or the one who randomly supports West Ham or something. Don’t think I can have banter with any PSG fans in work.
Sounds completely soulless and nothing more than money men chasing a quick buck and not thinking about what makes the game special in the first place.

10.) 18 Apr 2021 20:55:25
Gary Neville: Complains about a European Super League being all about money and exploiting the common football fan.

Also Gary Neville: Works for Sky. How do Sky fund their Premier League coverage again? I've forgotten, someone remind me.

12.) 18 Apr 2021 21:04:02
A really strong statement from the Premier League on the selfishness of a breakaway league that is based on making more money.

And the Premier League should know, being a breakaway league that was based on making more money.

13.) 18 Apr 2021 21:21:10
Ed002, you’ve not embarrassed yourself here mate. You have been saying this was coming for ages, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise when it did. Thank you for all you do round here!

{Ed002's Note - I have had a lot of abuse over this.}

14.) 18 Apr 2021 21:36:28
Sorry to hear that Ed002, absolutely bang out of order. I think people need to remember that you should never ever shoot the messenger.

15.) 18 Apr 2021 21:57:36
Some people clearly struggle with having their reality shattered.

Personally, I don't really want a closed shop Champions League or a breakaway European Super League, but why give Ed002 crap for it? He's been telling us this has been on the cards for years.

16.) 18 Apr 2021 22:15:20
Ed002 I don’t get the abuse you getting for pointing out facts but even if they are just your opinions the abuse is out of order we are all entitled to our own opinions. I don’t get the problem about the super league how many times have teams outside the big 6 got into the champions league since it started nearly 30 years ago I can just think of Everton once and Leicester once. So it’s nothing new any way just more teams in it. And am sure the premier league would benefit as well with the top side earning more money bringing better players in and that would help better tv deals in the long run.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - but the Premier League would take legal action to kick the clubs out.}

Hi Ed 002,

What are your thoughts on Konate as a player and what's he like off the pitch? Well behaved?
