Just read Bayern not likely to make Coutinho loan permanent, such a shame a great talent going backwards. Loved him when he was with us but we are a better team without him. Any ideas were he ends up?


{Ed002's Note - Philippe Coutinho (AM/LW) after missing out on Bruno Fernandes and Hakim Ziyech Spurs have enquired after Coutinho and been told that a loan fee would €30M for a season with an option to buy at €50M at the end of the season with any loaning club paying half his wages. I would expect any interested side to look for a significant reduction in such a deal. The player is being offered around PL sides. Barcelona will have to keep him if no takers are found although with a small amount of money owed to Liverpool still there may be room for them to negotiate - but I don't expect them to be interested. Leicester might offer a solution to get him off the books - but again there would be a need for some negotiation. Right now Barcelona will likely cut their losses and get the best deal they can as soon as they can - his representative may look to some sort of creative deal with an English side - but that could cause a delay.}

1.) 24 May 2020 15:37:18
would wages be a problem for Leicester and spurs on permeant deals ed.

{Ed002's Note - His wage demands would have to drop considerably from his €215 per week to move to any side on a permanent basis.}

2.) 24 May 2020 18:43:04
I think if Barcelona would deal at £50m we should really consider taking him back as long as he would take a good reduction of wages.

Also would love Timo Werner. If we could sell a few, Origi, Shaqiri, Lovren and Wilson for example we might make enough to cover one of them signings. Also with the wages saved from them along with Llanana who I suspect will move on so Coutinho taking his position in the squad.

3.) 26 May 2020 07:35:05
I was never a coutinho fan he was to selfish and a one trick pony he wouldn't get 5 minutes in the team we have now I mean who do you drop hendo milli ox gini fabinho he doesn't get near them in my opinion and no chance I'd bench manè for him his time has been and gone.



07 Apr 2020 11:32:35
Hi Ed002 do we have any interest in Ferran Torres is Sevilla please?


{Ed002's Note - Ferran Torres (RW/LW) considered as a potential Jadon Sancho replacement but likely priced out of a move to Borussia Dortmund - will end up at Real Madrid or Barcelona in all probability at some point. But, if Salah were to depart Liverpool he could well become an option for them but for now that is not the case. The player has made no secret of his desire to join Barcelona at some point. Valencia have a replacement lined up but the €100M asking price would need to drop to make a transfer anywhere viable this summer. Juventus has enquired after his availability but would need to make sales to fund a move. A third party has suggested to Manchester United that Ferran Torres would be a better option to Jadon Sancho as the deal would be far, far cheaper for them.}

1.) 07 Apr 2020 14:12:20
Cheers Ed for the detailed reply mate and also the information down the page on TW and DC very useful updates.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 07 Apr 2020 16:16:04
Hi Ed, do we still hold interest in Ben White or Ben Godfrey? If so, I assume they'd be an alternative to DC as opposed to instead of?


{Ed002's Note - I am comfortable saying that Ben Godfrey can be scratched.

Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City have dropped their interest and are looking at others. Real Madrid has a sustained interest, but the focus will be getting a priority signing done first, seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC. Barcelona have him on their list of CBs but money is going to be an issue this summer and they will look to horse trade - and are now in talks with the club of another player. Priority for Barcelona is like Real Madrid - get their priority transfer completed and then see where they are. Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer. If this happens, I think it would be the big move for the club this summer and would leave Gomez picking up pieces across the defence. May be viable for Liverpool to include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal.
Ben White (CB) potentially the pick of the younger home grown CBs - if Diego Carlos were to arrive or a CB were not to leave, he can also be scratched. Has a significant advantage over Carlos as he is home grown - and Liverpool has a HG problem. Might well become the preferred choice over Carlos as a Lovren replacement - but it would push Joe Gomez down the pecking order.

3.) 08 Apr 2020 17:29:05
If he is a Lovren replacement how will it push Gomez down the pecking order?

4.) 09 Apr 2020 14:10:45
White would push Gomez down the pecking order? must be some player.

5.) 09 Apr 2020 14:15:00
Thanks ed, i guess from your perspective what would you want to see happen in the CB space?

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos would be a very good buy as a partner for van Dyke but it won't ease the HG issue, and there is serious interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona. Ben White is seen as the best of the English youngsters and Brighton know he wants to make the step up - and Liverpool are very keen on him and he is five years younger than Diego Carlos.}

6.) 09 Apr 2020 19:32:20
Anyway we sign both Ed if Lovren leaves?

7.) 12 Apr 2020 01:40:26
Hi Ed002

When you say you think it maybe the big move for Liverpool this summer, can I assume you don't believe Timo Werner to arrive to Pool?
Or, you don't see that as a big move?

Sorry for the questions, I just wanted to clarify on your end so I have a better understanding.

Kind regards
Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - The situation with Timo Werner remains unchanged.

Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud - but they have other options. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - equally if other clubs were not able to sign their targets, interest in TW might increase. Atletico signing Cavani would likely kill off their interest and they have financial issues. There is clearly interest from Klopp, but would Timo Werner be interested in a move to sit on the bench at Liverpool most of the time? If the answer is yes, or if Firmino is leaving then it makes sense. Many of the fans expect Klopp to numerous players without anyone leaving and then completely change tactics and rotate them - it makes zero sense and the club has to meet Home Grown quotas as well. Last summer there was an approach from PSG who wanted Werner as a Cavani replacement - in the end Cavani stayed and they took Icardi on loan. PSG are concerned about being shunned by Icardi and have looked at TW but have not declared any interest. Mr Mourinho is keen for Spurs to take him but there are concerns about the cost. The interest of Dortmund has gone with the signing of Haarland - but could return in the summer if Real Madrid could prise Haaland away. Bayern Munich were never going to do business in January and played down all transfer talk but there is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski, who will be 32 at the start of next season, is going to need replacing in the next 18 months - and the plan had always been that it would be Timo Werner - they could yet look to do something or perhaps suggest he waits another year at RBL who have offered a new contract. The player has always said he wants to play for Manchester United one day but a move last summer was not possible and then Werner said he wanted to play for Bayern Munich over all others. There was a third party trying to negotiate for a BM move last summer but they were a long way apart on price and RBL looked to extend. As BM were expected to need Werner this coming summer, a release clause was agreed with his new contract that would make him available at a low fee so RBL would keep him another year and then he could move to Bayern Munich this summer. Now after a potential illegal approach he clearly wants to join Liverpool - the riot act has been read to him over public statements and his club is very unhappy at Liverpool.

There was a meeting between RBL and Inter Milan in London in mid February when Inter were in town to discuss transfers with Chelsea. Inter enquired after the availability of TW but were told by RBL that they were resigned to losing Werner as the player had his head turned by Liverpool – although Liverpool had yet to approach RBL at all.

Although the fat kid from Bolton has again announced it as a done deal - as he has done for more than a year, it simply isn't true although a large number of Liverpool fans think it is. RBL may look to keeping the player for a further year if Bayern Munich are not prepared to utilise the release clause just yet. Or perhaps Liverpool will do the honest thing and approach RBL with a very good offer to tempt them to sell?}

8.) 12 Apr 2020 13:38:19
Thanks for the great reply .

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



06 Apr 2020 21:07:46
Read earlier that the PL are in advanced talks with the Government about starting playing the matches again in June. Not sure if this is the case or it's BS but would be good news. As long as it's safe to do so.




29 Mar 2020 15:16:23
Hi Ed's, away from all he usual talk of the season being voided or not and the horrible situation we all find our selves in isolated at home, is there anything different developed or been muted regarding transfers, any potential new player target for us? Or indeed anything changed on the outgoing side?


{Ed002's Note - Although the fat kid from Bolton have assured Liverpool fans that deals for Werner, Sancko, Mbappe and Havertz have beeb agreed already, they havent't been. The only change I can think of is Liverpool again returning to watch Viktor Tsyhankov (RW) again before football was stopped. He would be a wildcard Salah replacement.}

1.) 29 Mar 2020 15:56:22
Cheers Ed. Not heard of him until you mentioned him previously.

{Ed002's Note - The lady from Marseille was in Kiev just before the lockdown and had bee told €50M was the price and both Bayern Munich and Liverpool had been watching him again recently.}

2.) 29 Mar 2020 16:05:44
Just checked him out again and his stats in YouTube, I know it’s not the best way to rate a player but he looks very good imo and 40 goals and assists is a good return for a winger.

3.) 29 Mar 2020 16:18:38
Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

4.) 29 Mar 2020 16:27:57
Jesus, I just read the Fat Kid's twitter where he boasted the Klopp gave him exclusive live coverage of the Liverpool v Shrewsbury game.

Yeah, I got 'exclusive live coverage' too with an illegal internet stream.

{Ed001's Note - funny I got live coverage without one, I must thank Jurgen for that then. Previously I thought it was down to BeIN Sports but clearly I was wrong. Good job Bolton Boy informed me of my error.}

5.) 29 Mar 2020 16:46:59
That is some team to look forward to next season with those 4 additions. Can the Bolton kid arrange for the transfer of Lautaro Martinez too, I'm sure Klopp can squeeze him in somewhere, maybe play a 2-8 formation.

6.) 29 Mar 2020 18:11:16
Been reading that Klopp like Dembele also from Barca. Ed002 did say a while back we asked about his availability but nothing more. He would be expensive probably thick end of €90. Then we are back to thinking that someone has to leave for him to arrive so probably a no go.



19 Feb 2020 19:00:00
Ed's do we have any interest in Rilot Rashica.


{Ed002's Note - My notes say: Milot Rashica (LW/RW) another possible Jadon Sancho replacement or indeed a Leroy Sane option and there is interest from both Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Werder Bremen don't want to sell (but could be relegated). Rashica plays predominently on the left, like several of the may Sancho replacements, but is seen as versatile. Dortmund are looking at a number of possible Sanch replacements that they have identified and others also play predominently on the left. I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Werder Bremen nor any declaration of interest from his agent or lawyer but it would be interesting if their were - he would certainly provide good cover for Mane.}

1.) 19 Feb 2020 20:33:43
Thank you Ed002.

2.) 20 Feb 2020 06:57:06
Welcome back Virgil 👌🏻.

3.) 20 Feb 2020 08:39:05
And the love affair continues.

4.) 20 Feb 2020 03:14:30
Thanks, Ed. I was just about to ask the same question. Sounds more realistic than Sancho to me, to be honest.

Good morning all

I'm a little more confident now we will at least get some football back this season, even though it is behind closed doors it's a step in the right direction. A long way to go to completing all games but progress has been made.

Stay safe all and have a great weekend 👍.




28 May 2020 19:34:51
Sounds like significant steps made today on getting the football restarted on June 17th. I just hope there isn't a second wave of the Virus between now and then. Ed was it discussed today how the season ends of it can't get completed mate?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, but there was no clear agreement.

1.) 28 May 2020 20:08:31
Different opinions and ideas From different teams no doubt?

{Ed002's Note - As opposed to?}

2.) 28 May 2020 20:23:40
Sorry Ed002, no clear agreement on what exactly? Would there not have had to be a clear agreement to restart, given that broadcasters have announced it and fixtures have been put in place?

{Ed002's Note - You did not read the post.}

3.) 28 May 2020 21:03:05
Apologies Ed, wasn’t sure which part it related to. Was the ending of the season just discussed then, as opposed to concrete proposals being put forward?

{Ed002's Note - No, proposals were discussed but there is no agreement.}

4.) 28 May 2020 21:36:58
Are things any clearer as regards to venues Ed?

{Ed002's Note - The plans are home venues can be used except for derbies, critical games and for any teams whose fans cannot be trusted - in which case neutral venues will be used.}

5.) 28 May 2020 23:14:35
Critical games Ed it’s the end of the season cl and el places to fight for relegation to be sorted. Liverpool have nearly won the league but they have still got to win it not to many games that won’t be critical they have left one hell of a grey Area there and that’s before all the over stuff. So it looks like neutral venues then.

{Ed002's Note - As it stands right now the critical games will be the games between relegation contenders. Derbies are planned to be shifted and right now there will be no games at Anfield because it is seen the that the fans cannot be trusted. So Arsenal/Spurs, West Ham/Chelsea, etc. will be elsewhere.}

6.) 29 May 2020 00:13:53
Ed002 After seeing all the beaches over the bank holiday saying that about football fans seems a bit of a joke. But to finish the league even though it’s not the right way to play games I think it’s the fairest way to sort everything out. Then next season is probably going to start this way and hopefully end the right way.

{Ed002's Note - I think to be fair all games at neutral venues would have been the answer - but some clubs complained about that.}

7.) 29 May 2020 00:27:11
Liverpool fans can’t be trusted? How very dare you! 😉.

8.) 29 May 2020 06:46:10
No games at Anfield. Wow, I didn’t expect that tbh.

9.) 29 May 2020 06:52:39
Odd to single out teams and games for neutral grounds. I can't see how that is fair. All teams have a number of games they need to win even LFC still need two more. Playing Everton at Brighton would be strange, I would rather Wembley or even a training ground tbh. Not another Prem team ground.

10.) 29 May 2020 08:58:27
I agree ed neutral venues would have been better. I think Brighton that was most vocal about it because of who they had at home with there form I would not of thought they would have won any of the big teams they had at home. But playing the other teams who they should play away would be more of an advantage. If I was a Brighton fan I would rather have that.

{Ed001's Note - not one team has fans that can be trusted to not turn up at the ground. Not one. But neutral venues are not much better, as the bigger teams have fans spread all over the country and they can be trusted just as little as the ones locally. It was different in Germany as, in the main, people there follow rules and obey. Not always a good thing, but at times like this it is.}

11.) 29 May 2020 12:21:50
ED02 comment regarding Liverpool fans can't be trusted. Yet again, you throw some shade at us. What is with your relentless hate for us? If it was another team in the same position I imagine their fans might be of the same persuasion, would you then comment on that if it was mentioned they couldn't be trusted?

{Ed002's Note - I am assuming you are some sort of half wit. Yesterday at the Premier League meeting the police stated the twelve high-risk games they want moved to a neutral venue. It seems completely pointless sharing information with vegetable matter like you.}

12.) 29 May 2020 12:33:06
What a silly bunch of rules and seems unfair on all teams IMO. It's either neutral or not all round surely. Either way, we will still win the league but doesn't seem right. Just make all play at neutral venues and it's a level playing field.

13.) 29 May 2020 13:01:26
What would you do ed1? I think it's either one or the other, can't be a mixture of the two surely.

{Ed001's Note - has to be neutral venues if they aren't going to allow some to take place at the home venue.}

14.) 29 May 2020 14:58:38
I saw a potential list of games online, no idea how true it is but it effected some of our away games to. So if they need a couple of our games at neutral venues so be it.

The team have done incredibly well to get in the position we are in, so shouldn't impact our overall goal too much. and if this is a sacrifice that needs to be made by the club to ensure safety and benefit project restart then I'm all for it.

15.) 29 May 2020 13:58:10
Thinks Eds have it spot on. Everyone should play at neutral venues, no fans, nothing. No one gets an advantage. Maybe correct me if I'm wrong Eds, but to allow teams to play at the intended venues, and then also having neutral venues makes it more complex?

Also on a less serious matter, I'd love to know what constitutes as a neutral venue? Maybe get everyone playing in the Scottish stadiums?

{Ed002's Note - There is a list of eight stadiums belonging to Premier League clubs that were to be used when it looked like all games would be at neutral grounds. Two others (St Georges Park and Wembley) were discussed and rejected by a number of sides. Now, with between six and 12 games to be played at neutral grounds, the venues are being reconsidered.}

16.) 29 May 2020 13:59:08
Just read that it's not just our home games they want to move its also any game we are involved in where we might win the title so Newcastle may lose their home game against us as well depending on results, obviously the Derby will move.

{Ed002's Note - The full list of games is as follows: Everton v Liverpool, Spurs v West Ham, Liverpool v Crystal Palace, Manchester United v Sheffield United, West Ham v Chelsea, Manchester City v Liverpool, Liverpool v Aston Villa, Manchester City v Newcastle, Liverpool v Burnley, Spurs v Arsenal, Liverpool v Chelsea, Newcastle v Liverpool. Undecided over Crystal Palace v Chelsea. It will likely be reduced to six or seven is what was said yesterday.}

17.) 29 May 2020 18:11:25
Merseyside Police have apparently said that they have no objection to Liverpool and Everton playing their games at home.

18.) 29 May 2020 22:32:37
It has nothing to do with Liverpool fans being untrustworthy. It is simply because we are the team that look set to win the title and therefore have something to celebrate. Had another team been in our position, it would be them that would have to play at neutral venues.

19.) 29 May 2020 22:33:41
Pity they couldn't play Arsenal at Stokes ground because they were absolutely crap when they played there.



27 May 2020 13:37:29
Ed with the PL teams all voting unanimously to start contact training this week, is this a big step forward in your opinion or not? Also where are we at please as regards to the next meeting and what is the next steps to be discussed?


{Ed002's Note - No, this is an expected step. Tomorrow will see further discussions between the clubs where they will address the issue of home stadiums/independent stadiums/or a mixture of home and independent stadiums will be discussed. Also to be discussed will be the options for ending the season if that needs to happen and commercial/broadcast issues and proposals.}

1.) 27 May 2020 14:50:50
Ok Ed thank you for your information as always.

2.) 27 May 2020 20:11:42
We will follow the German league.

3.) 27 May 2020 22:52:06
Thanks for the info, Ed. IMO, The season will be played out on the pitch BUT a lot more things have to be decided upon first before that can happen.

{Ed002's Note - Probably, but before a start the PL need to decide options ou.}

4.) 28 May 2020 00:16:54
Hi Ed,

In terms of curtailment discussions, do you think the Premier League would disclose contingency plans to the public?
Such as if the season can not be completed then this is the format we would use.

{Ed002's Note - They are a back up if required.}

5.) 28 May 2020 07:52:39
Thank you, Ed002! :)



26 May 2020 20:56:43
Just been reading that Lallana is a likely target for Leicester and to team up again with BR, also Newcastle have an interest in Shaqiri. Not sure if it's true on both but would be sad to see Lallana go. He obviously wants more game time and if we are looking at bringing in the likes of Werner then we need to sell some fringe players first.


{Ed002's Note - Keicester is correct.}

1.) 26 May 2020 21:12:05
Cheers Ed.

2.) 26 May 2020 21:57:53
Would be a really good move for Lallana. Leicester seem a really good club with a decent team. Good luck to him if it happens.

3.) 27 May 2020 09:18:01
Llallana out, Werner in. Absolute no-brainer.

4.) 27 May 2020 10:09:03
Lallana was brilliant in Jurgens 1st full season, has been a great servant.



25 May 2020 09:19:09
I see Raphael Honigstein is jumping on the Werner bandwagon now with his comments.

Another hat trick yesterday, what amazes me is he always seems so deep in a midfield roll and links the play yet has scored 30 goals this season so clearly a finisher also. Would love him in our system.


1.) 25 May 2020 10:44:46
Werner is a cracking player and let's be honest would be a great addition to the squad. If we got him it would be great and he would add a lot to an already world class attack. If we don't get him then we still have a world class front 3. Our front 3 play a lot of minutes and seem to avoid injury and tiredness. With this season possibly running into next and the prospect of losing 2 of them to the African Nations (If it happens) then this summer could be an ideal time to add that 1 quality forward player to our squad.

2.) 25 May 2020 16:47:57
OP, we're going to have to deal with RBL first and that won't be a cake-walk since we tapped him up and RBL ain't having it esp. since we tapped Naby up as well. That said, he would be a great signing for us cos he is built to thrive in our system regardless of wherever he plays within the front 3.

Cop, you would let Origi go and keep Wilson? Origi has done enough and is more of a forward player Striker or on the left wing. Wilson usually Plays on the Right hand side were a certain Mo Salah plays mate. Wilson wouldn’t get a sniff of game time which is why he has been loaned out and why Shaqiri is looking at leaving for mean game time.

Werner makes sense as he can play anywhere in the front 3 positions as well as deeper behind the Striker.
