Talk of Hoever going Wolves for £10m.


{Ed025's Note - sometimes you just have to suck these things up cobra.. :)

1.) 18 Sep 2020 15:32:29
Dreadful Ed!

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you should have any attachments to him LRG, although i think he would have made a decent sweeper mate.. :)

2.) 18 Sep 2020 15:35:33
Think that’s good business on our part.

3.) 18 Sep 2020 15:39:48
Hes nowhere near big and strong enough to play centre back and he's well down the pecking order at right back. Its much better for the lad to move on and build his career where he may have a chance.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 15:39:48
Boy, that came out of the blue. Michael Edwards is running the transfer market with his magic wand. With Neco and Sepp VDB, it is going to be limited for Ki-Jana who will need a year or two on loan. Sorry to see him leave but Michael Edward needs water to turn it to wine. Something has to go if we were to bring in Ismaila Sarr.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 15:48:37
Ed, I'd rather brush that joke under the carpet mate 😂.

6.) 18 Sep 2020 16:23:16
That sucks.

{Ed025's Note - yeah but hopefully his form will pick up now thunderbird.. :)

7.) 18 Sep 2020 18:01:15

Talk of Liverpool being in talks with Bournemouth for a deal for Ryan Fraser in January, would be a decent backup.


1.) 11 Nov 2019 16:43:01
Many Bournemouth fans feel he's gone a bit stale this season after playing well last (most assists in league I think) however this could be due to him running down his contract and clearly looking for a 'better' move.

2.) 11 Nov 2019 16:58:51
Can’t be any truth in us after Fraser Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - It makes little sense to me if true. His contract runs out in the summer and there is interest from elsewhere so a move for him now, given that Bournemouth have so far not agreed a new deal, miight see some sort of deal including Harry Wilson. Whilst he has not performed as well as expected this season the capability is in there somewhere. Right now I am on the train heading for Heathrow so checking is not so easy.}

3.) 11 Nov 2019 17:19:18
No worries Ed mate appreciate your reply anyway keep us informed please.

4.) 11 Nov 2019 18:20:08
He’s better than Shaq and Wilson and is more fitting to Klopps style of play.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 21:14:44
Oh baby I hear the blues are calling.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 09:48:57
I thought we only sell to Bournemouth and buy from Southampton?

7.) 14 Nov 2019 15:41:18
Check the lads assist rate out it’s pretty impressive and maybe that’s what interests Klopp.



04 Jan 2019 14:30:41
The rumour seems to be Solanke going Brighton on a permanent deal, best for both parties imo.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:49:53
Ed2 if your around has the solanke fee been sorted? I mean have we settled his compensation fee.

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is all done.}



05 Jul 2018 07:29:41
Been told by someone who works within the club that Shaqiri is coming and Klopp is going to stick with Karius as number 1 contrary to reports. Hardly over the moon with either really but the same source did seem to think Gotze was nailed on a couple of seasons back so I hope things change again.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 09:30:04
Let's see what happens. Shaqiri just doesn't seem like a klopp player.
Karius deserves some slack from our fans either way. YNWA should apply for karius too.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 09:45:33
If that’s true I think Shaqiri will eventually take Karius’s place 🤝.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:25:59
That's an upgrade Ron.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 12:05:54
Ed001 is 100% spot friggin on regarding Shaqiri. There is talent in the academy that should get a look before making a signing like this. I think it’s a waste of money. Not necessarily because I don’t think he is any good, but if we are just making signings for cover as some suggest what is the point of having an academy? If we do sign Shaqiri I will support him and hope that he does well but give the youngsters a proper chance.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 12:13:52
stone - this is nothing new with Shaqiri or even with Klopp. It’s the modern day game which demands quick, regular success.

If Klopp had won something then maybe he could take a risk with a youngster, but he’s under pressure to deliver this season and everyone moaned about how weak our bench was in the CL final.

{Ed001's Note - and it has improved by buying 2 first team players so that those that were in the first team will now be on the bench. Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger and are merely just there for 'cover'?}

6.) 05 Jul 2018 12:26:42
Agreed totally.
However, every time there was a rumour that we are buying first 11 material, the default response from an ed is either “unless Salah is leaving” or “if Mane were to leave”.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. Did anyone say anything of the kind when Fekir was close? You are mixing up your own ridiculous expectations with the truth. Some players would only be signed if Salah or Mane were to leave. Some would be bought to improve the team as it is.}

7.) 05 Jul 2018 12:45:47
Ey ed if klopp can screw shaqiri head on and he can make an impact in say 10/ 12, where we can also give Salah a rest then for the reported 12 million it's a bargain.

If however he just flops and we want to sell, were not going to lose anything major, as I've said before someone like West ham would probably pay 20/ 25 mil next year. Even he has just a handful of good games.

Got people saying why didn't they sign him now, well liverpool want him and there hardly going to compete with klopp or champions league now are they.

{Ed001's Note - if West Ham would pay that much, why don't they just sign him for 12 now? You are making no sense.}

8.) 05 Jul 2018 13:06:39
''Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger. ''

Because if they replace mane, he ain't going to sit on the bench. We don't have a world class midfield and they can be subs. we have world class attack that won't be subs. solanke ings Sturridge don't fit the mould and ain't good enough.

So improve your bench. Man city have an unbelievable bench. klopp is trying to address the issue.

{Ed001's Note - Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench.}

9.) 05 Jul 2018 13:44:56
I get your point ron but if we are buying for “cover” that is partly what the academy is for. To buy a player to simply cover is a waste of money in my view. How many times have we read on here from so many asking why the youngsters aren’t given a chance? I hope they get a legitimate chance during the pre-season. Just my opinion.

10.) 05 Jul 2018 14:01:51
Remember on the 25th of May when nearly everyone was saying how good Karius had been and that they'd be happy for him to be first choice next season? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

11.) 05 Jul 2018 14:23:33
Ed I answered you question in my post.

They probably do want to sign him now but he's probably going to choose us for the champions league and were liverpool.

If however he doesn't work out I'm sure they would still be interested and the going rate for a good rw like him is about 20/ 25 million. Plus if he has a few good games but wants more game time than we can offer then maybe we sell him as a prize asset for like 30 mil.

{Ed001's Note - you haven't answered my question, you are just making guesses.}

12.) 05 Jul 2018 14:31:47
Totally on board with ed here. I would much prefer we either buy someone that would put our first teamers on the bench or give Harry Wilson the cover job than Shaqiri be brought in. But if he bought he will have my support. There is a player in there somewhere, and if anyone can get it out of him it’s Klopp.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 14:19:07
Poor guy I feel sorry for Karius. He was doing well up until the final and had shocker yes but that can happen to anyone. Look at De Gea for Spain (yet everyone still classed him as one of the worlds best.

I do think we should upgrade don’t get me wrong but if we can’t get the guy we want, we wait until we can. Karius is still a decent keeper and I think with our midfield improved significantly he should be called up less

I just hope to god he doesn’t read this site. What happened to YNWA? Embarrassed to be a Liverpool fan at times.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 14:53:04
Makes sense to spend 200m on neymar and put mane on bench. and when he leaves spend 300m on mbappe and put neymar on bench. or fingers crossed we have unearthed an entire squad of WC subs. as shown on many an fa/ efl cup game.

15.) 05 Jul 2018 15:10:35
Does any of our opinions or the Eds opinions matter, if Klopp wants him then he sees something, isn't that all there is to it. Klopp doesn't care if you think he's lazy or someone else thinks he has a bad attitude or if Ed thinks there's better in the academy or elsewhere, it's the managers choice. I'm all for opinion but don't be absolutely hammering a player because he's being linked with us. Mane had issues pre_Liverpool, Keita has had his fair share too, let's see what happens and who knows, he might win golden boot out of nowhere next season.

16.) 05 Jul 2018 15:25:36
Considering the other options bandied about it for goalkeeper I’d far rather stick with Karius and make Ward number 2, sell Mignolet and bring in an experience third choice. Besides which, Karius is a young lad and will learn from that night in Kiev.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 16:05:37
Who is putting mane, Salah or b9bby on the bench? Answer me that.

Second ed. There isn't a single premier league team who want shaqiri? Who have struggled offering what we can?

{Ed001's Note - he has been touted around everyone, that is all I know.}

18.) 05 Jul 2018 16:50:07
Far enough ed. I wasn't arguing with you but I just don't think there is much to stress out with this transfer. We will make pleanty and release loads of wages once the likes of sturdier have been offloaded.

Secondly no matter how good you are you always need something off the bench and signing smartly isn't always the worst idea. I personally think fergie would of signed him, lime he did solskajer, chicharito, Larson etc. He knew having some good back up on the bench was a smart move but there isn't always better than what you have out there. Which in this case unless it was Messi or Ronaldo I think our front 3 are irreplaceable. Maybe apart from mane but only slightly.

{Ed001's Note - none of those players were bought for the bench, they were all seen as players with the potential to be first choice. Fergie was never afraid to leave a gap in the squad for youth players.}

19.) 05 Jul 2018 17:09:03
Isn't it constantly mentioned that it is a squad game now, we are not signing him for the bench we are signing him for the squad. We need squad players who are good enough to play premier league games when we are resting the likes of Salah for CL games. Yes we need spaces for kids to get game time and develop but we also need experience to be able to stand a chance in those games.

20.) 05 Jul 2018 17:19:42
and I think shaqiri is more than good enough for the bench but has the talent that if klopp can screw his bloody head on and he thrives in our attacking play could become a first team player.

I just think your way out with this one. He is a good player. Solid. If klopp makes it click. Well he might just supirse a lot of us.

Like Henderson, Chamberlain, Salah, mane, Robertson, Trent, Loren, Milner. So much negativity surrounded all of those players. Deemed wastes of money or not good enough for liverpool. They where all first team starters in the cl campaign and resulting final last year.

Yes we can't label every llayer we sign with klopps magic wand but we can't just discount how good he has proven to be with players who where deemed not good enough!

21.) 05 Jul 2018 18:08:34
its all a moot point if the karius rumour is true. we won't win anything unless we buy a quality keeper.

22.) 05 Jul 2018 19:31:12
StevieJesus we’re not gong to get Oblak and there really isn’t much point shopping in the reject pile for the likes of Navas or Cillessen as they’re not quality at all. So we should give Karius our support.

23.) 05 Jul 2018 19:37:48
I agree FMS. Well said mate.

24.) 06 Jul 2018 03:41:23
The underlying assumption to this raging debate seems to be that we are buying Shaquiri for "cover".

What is the basis for this assumption?

25.) 06 Jul 2018 07:44:23
That he's not good enough to displace any of our current front 3. Not many are, to be fair.

26.) 06 Jul 2018 08:47:28
Defo strongly agree with Ed about buying players for the first 11 and therefore strengthening the bench with proven first 11 players from last years. Despite being unlucky with injuries at the end of last season we lacked 2-3 players who can come on and make an impact.

Dybala for me would fit the profile and is an excellent player. More mobile than Fekir and I believe fits better with the now dynamic midfield we have to match our front 3. The system can be tweaked for different games giving
Us a plan B and allowing us to compete in all comps.

Still think we need a keeper but in Klopp I trust.

27.) 06 Jul 2018 10:38:57
"Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench."
And the same with Fergie's United. The way to build a strong squad is buying players who can be starters and take someone's place, then it's up to the player who gets dropped to the bench to improve and fight for the place back.

Buying backup players gets you nowhere, just look at Chelsea last season for the perfect example. Deserved champions one season and a big league flop the next. They signed Morata, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Emerson, Caballero, Giroud and even Ross flippin Barkley for a total of almost a quarter of a billion pounds and NONE of them improved the first team.

So yes it would be VERY difficult to improve on our starting forwards, so I'd prefer if we go for a younger player on lower wages who9 can play on but wings and has more potential to learn and improve, like Moses Simon for example.



07 Mar 2018 06:43:15
The club are struggling to persuade Rhian Brewster to stay at the club. He's keen on a move to Germany with Dortmund keen on him.
He believes he has a greater chance of breaking through in their set up and in all honesty taking my Liverpool hat off he's probably correct.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 09:59:36
he won't play for 8 months, he just had a terrible injury!

2.) 07 Mar 2018 10:33:06
Nostradamus- It still doesn’t take away from the fact he wants to leave.

3.) 07 Mar 2018 10:44:05
Where have you got this info?

4.) 07 Mar 2018 11:20:49
A source within the club.

{Ed002's Note - I told you about this months ago - I am not a "source" within the club.}

5.) 07 Mar 2018 11:25:07
It'd help his cause to break through if he could stay fit, two seperate breaks this season isn't it?

6.) 07 Mar 2018 11:35:47
But in some regions you are considered a sauce?

{Ed002's Note - A couple of bars in Chelsea, yes.}

7.) 07 Mar 2018 12:35:18
I haven’t got the info from you ed2,I have got this from someone within the club.

{Ed002's Note - That is fine - but it is far from new.}

8.) 07 Mar 2018 12:49:19
I’m just passing on what iv been told from a good source, if that backs up what you have said previously then fair play to you finding out earlier.

9.) 07 Mar 2018 13:21:08
Well goodbye and good luck.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 14:45:06
I hope we can keep hold of him, he looks a talent.

11.) 07 Mar 2018 14:47:02
To be fair a move to Germany could be very good. He could develop and stay out of the limelight a bit, he'd be watched like a hawk if he broke into our 1st team anytime soon.

What's his contract situation? Is he on a pro contract yet or would he move to Germany on a free (plus compensation ) .

We'd do well to sell him with a buy back clause and maybe get him back in a few years once he's developed a bit more.

12.) 07 Mar 2018 15:12:25
It makes sense from his perspective sadly. The Premier League is hyper-competitive, more than it has ever been before, and arguably the most competitive league in Europe. Younger players, unless they are truly spectacular, just don't get that many opportunities at the top sides in the Premier League - I think any youngster who had real ambition would be wise to look to Europe for more opportunities to develop, both as a player and a person, as they are facing a real uphill battle in the Premier League.

13.) 07 Mar 2018 15:23:05
I wonder if he could be used has part of a deal to sign Sessegnon?

14.) 07 Mar 2018 15:40:58
So Dub, he's said he wants to move to Germany to help his progress, and you suggest sending him to Fulham, in England?!

15.) 07 Mar 2018 15:47:38
Dub Jim-He wants to go to Germany not Fulham.

16.) 07 Mar 2018 16:26:27
No TIA im suggesting that if were gona lose a 17 year old whos done nothing in senior football, then we try and use him to get something we do want and someone who does want to play for us. Granted its very unlikely but all im saying is could be worth a try!

17.) 07 Mar 2018 18:51:58
Too early to tell with him.
We poached him from Chelsea.
If he goes, he goes.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 08:44:41
Exactly Ron, Solanke won the u-21's world cup and the best player in it and looks not completely ready, let alone ready to lead the line, this kid wins the u-17 world cup and thinks he should start games? its a bit ridiculous. I guarantee he will barley get a kick for the first team at Dortmund as well. That Man City kid, Sancho moved there for the same reasons and he is a much bigger talent than Brewester, i think he has played 1.5 games all season! As i said goodbye and good luck, he will need the luck part real bad!

19.) 08 Mar 2018 11:23:58
is there a max to the number of years you can loan a player? obviously not longer than his contract, but say he has 4 years left, can we loan him out for 3 years to the same club?

{Ed002's Note - You can give a loan which is renewable if everyone agrees. Else two years.}

20.) 08 Mar 2018 16:05:16
Nostradamus-Sancho has featured more times for Dortmund in the bundesliga then he would have for City in the premiership I can almost guarantee.
He’s featured in 6 games and started some and would have played more without injury.

Ed2- what is the database that football transfer fees get logged on? I know you have mentioned it before but I can't find it on a search.


{Ed002's Note - FIFA's TMS.}



25 Aug 2020 19:38:02
Barca have confirmed Messi wants out on top of Suarez leaving, should we be worried about one of our front 3 being targeted? I know Barcelona are apparently struggling with money but that's a lot of wages off their books with those 2.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 19:55:16
They are in crisis and a mess!
Messi has ruined them he’s too much say.

2.) 25 Aug 2020 19:56:43
Think neymar will be there first target, and Messi has said it before hasn’t he? Then gets a new contract for some reason.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 19:56:48
Mane didn't get on with koeman so swerve that one, bobby not happening, if they want salah 150 million is the only option .

4.) 25 Aug 2020 19:59:50
150m? That for one leg?

5.) 25 Aug 2020 20:01:27
I personally am not worried in the slightest because;

a) I highly doubt any of our boys would leave to go there right now, it’s a huge rebuild job

b) if we did lose on our front three, it will be for an astronomical fee and there’s probably only Mbappe in world football that wouldn’t be attainable. Neymar too but who frack wants him anyways!

6.) 25 Aug 2020 20:03:01
I doubt any of our front 3 will want to downgrade. Don't see Barcelona winning any major trophies for a few years while they rebuild from scratch so not an attractive club to join for players in their late twenties.

7.) 25 Aug 2020 20:11:54
Imagine if he signed for Liverpool. Our front three would be Mané Salah and Firmino.

8.) 25 Aug 2020 20:32:01
With Coutinho, Fati, Griezmann and Dembele also at the club you'd have to think they have other priorities such as every position in between the Goalkeeper and the front 3 😅.

9.) 25 Aug 2020 21:08:52
Is it Silly Season already?
Oh damn, it's nearly September, I guess it was delayed due to C.V..

10.) 26 Aug 2020 03:12:00
I'd be thinking lautaro Martinez or neymar might be more realistic options for them to target in attack. Memphis depay if koeman targets the Dutch appeal.

Yeah, they’ve made a mistake and they have in the past but they’ve shown again they listen to the fans.

Wayne rooney says footballers are scape goats and they shouldn't have to take a paycut and why them well mr rooney when lower paid staff and normal workers are getting a 20% pay cut and scraping by in some cases living hand to mouth with the same employer as someone on full pay in excess of 100k a week that is why footballers are being called out as well should the owners . these people will take 4 years maybe more to earn 100k. be grateful for what you have most premier league players will earn more in one year than I will in my life time sorry for the rant I'm just heavily disgusted in the situation.

2.) 05 Apr 2020 12:28:23
LFC messed up here big time. On both a moral and PR level, this is a complete disaster that will not be going away anytime soon.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately your right mate..

3.) 05 Apr 2020 12:38:05
I totally get where you’re coming from, Berg, I think we all do.
It does seem, however, that footballers are being relentlessly targeted by the media and such, more so than a lot of other professionals, almost in a way that says because they entertain for a living rather than study for licensing and accreditation, their wealth is unearned so now it is time to give it up.
I am one of the few that is against footballers pay being cut for now, as that takes the burden and some operational risk away from the owners who benefit most when their organizations are doing well. It is for this reason why Liverpool’s actions were so disappointing - ‘Support us when we need you, but don’t expect anything back when you are in your time of need’.
I am in no way saying that footballers can’t do more to give back to their communities, I sincerely hope as many as possible step up and recognize just how fortunate they are, but this problem is about the behaviour of organizations, rather than individual players.

I would say he probably has the highest standing of any player we have signed recently. Viewed as one of the best in his position in the world. Torres was a big name but his career was stagnating a little before he came to us, It probably felt a bigger signing than Thiago as we had a poorer squad at the time and were desperate for more quality. Thiago has just been added to an already world class team.
