Evening ed002.

Just a quick question, who identified Szoboszlai, was it Fallows?



{Ed002's Note - Szoboszlai was already a very well known player with interest from a number of other sides in the summer. Liverpool did not declare an interest with RBL but met with his agent until such time as they knew the player would be open to a move. They finally approached RBL on June 29 and wanted to negotiate the price but were told the release clause would need to be paid in full. Hemce the transfer.}

1.) 31 Oct 2023 10:18:28
Ok cheers.

2.) 31 Oct 2023 19:34:32
He’s worth every penny and more!

3.) 31 Oct 2023 20:26:55
I remember a post a few weeks ago where Ed2 actually named the scout who recommended Szoboszlai to LFC. I've done a search but can't find it now. Perhaps another poster remembers?

4.) 31 Oct 2023 21:05:01
Think he mentioned Dworaczek was involved.

5.) 31 Oct 2023 21:40:45
Another job well done. Props to all those involved in his signing.

6.) 01 Nov 2023 00:55:35
Ah, yea. Top marks to mad Eric!

30 Sep 2023 11:53:11
Ed02 who recommended szobo to be signed? schmadtke?

{Ed002's Note - Sven Dworaczek made the original recommendation I understand and Jorg Schmadtke met with his agent. }.

7.) 01 Nov 2023 11:50:48
Sven Dworaczek you beauty. I wonder what other players he has recommended?



25 Aug 2023 21:18:58
Good evening ed002,

Have we made a bid for Gravenberch?



{Ed002's Note - Ryan Gravenberch (CM/DM/AM) Versatile midfield player who only joined Bayern Munich last summer and wasn't to be for sale, unless the Head Coach decides he can join the lengthy list of players now available as he looks towards a rebuild and, with Brazzo Salihamidzic being sacked that has become more likely. Liverpool have had an offer rejected by Bayern Munich who will look to a premium if they are to sell this late in the transfer window, but Tuchel wants him gone and the funds to replace him. There have been enquiries from a number of clubs, including Manchester City and Manchester United. The player is making demands about being a starter and game time and Bayern Munich have reluctantly told Team Mino he can be sold. Newcastle and Manchester City interest has now gone. There is interest from Italy but that may not suit the player. The player has made it clear he would like his next move to be to Manchester United and they provide an option and have spoken with Bayern Munich about him during discussions over another player. A wildcard may still be Juventus.}

1.) 26 Aug 2023 09:50:27
That’s insightful Ed’s nice one. 5 days of the window remaining and we’re chasing a player who wants to go to Man Utd? Bonkers. I’d prefer Kone.

2.) 26 Aug 2023 10:31:35
Chasing a plaayer whos made it clear he wants to be starting yet won't be starting a lot. can see this ending well.

3.) 26 Aug 2023 10:49:53
Kone? According to ed002, he'd prefer Chelsea. Not sure I'd want any player who has expressly stated a preference for another club.

{Ed002's Note - Gravenberch wants Manchester United.}

4.) 26 Aug 2023 11:33:17
In that case ed002, they are welcome to him ?.



11 Aug 2023 04:36:22
Evening Ed002 from sunny and a very hot Florida!

Lots of reports saying we've bid a pretty hefty amount for Caicedo and should we get this over the line, would you still expect us to try and sign a CB?



{Ed002's Note - Midfield will be the priority. A CB if possible but Liverpool have stepped back from a number of good options they had. Enjoy Florida.}

1.) 11 Aug 2023 09:13:42
I personally think we're good In midfield if caicedo does join. Caicedo, Mac, Dom. Trent, thiago, Jones, Baj, Elliott is enough for me. I'd be looking to loan out the McConnells, Mortons and Clarks. A Cb would be great though. Hopefully we can sell phillips and maybe matip and get one in.

2.) 11 Aug 2023 10:56:29
Hi Drogie

That’s crazy, I’m currently on holiday in Florida from the UK. I hope you having a great day. Do you know any good places to watch the game on Sunday?


3.) 11 Aug 2023 11:49:40
I think we are one short, you’ve got to consider injuries as well.



20 Jul 2023 17:55:53
Evening ed002.

No finance questions - promise ha
We had representatives in Spain regarding Llorente, any progression on this?



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

1.) 20 Jul 2023 19:55:18
As I’ve said time and time again Klopp likes to get his incomings in early would be surprised if there is more than one more player signed.

2.) 20 Jul 2023 20:03:18
Acered it depends on whether the interest in and departures of Fab and Hendo were known about before the start of the window. If it’s come as surprise that both are leaving then some later arrivals than normal might be required to get the right player in.

3.) 20 Jul 2023 22:27:51
Well acer if we don't get more players in. we will soon be dropping down the league pal. I understand what your saying but serious problems occurring now.

4.) 21 Jul 2023 03:19:02
Acered, you are right mate, but this window is an exception to the rule. I think we made two of the three midfield signings that we were after and there was a lot to f talk about a DM, Kone, then Lavia as the third. Then Fabs and Hendo stuck their hands up as wanting to leave and now we need one maybe two additional signings on top of the DM that we still needed.

Of course there is also a general assumption that we are going to sign a LCB too, so I think this window is (in Liverpool terms) a generational event.

I’ve decided that I’m just going to get some popcorn, sit back with a beer and watch it for entertainment value - it might not happen again for a while so, just enjoy the roller coaster ride and trying not to spill my beer, sort of thing.

5.) 21 Jul 2023 11:30:31
I guess you’re right lads in that the Hendo x fabs situation may change things this window.



14 Jul 2023 12:49:02
Ed002 - see you mentioned llorente - age 28, a deviation from our transfer strategy?


{Ed002's Note - What transfer strategy is that?}

1.) 14 Jul 2023 13:17:42
Do we not try and buy players room for improvement - Thiago aside, Consider the line-up that won the Champions League for. With the exception of Alexander-Arnold and Henderson, the club's longest-serving player who was bought by the previous regime aged just 20, each of the other nine players were signed between the ages of 23 and 26. The perfect age to make an instant impact but improve too….
It was Just a thought ed002.

{Ed002's Note - It is very clear a huge number of fans have turned on Henderson and Fabinho, and now potential targets like Llorente. I will avoid mentioningbtehese again and will delete posts about them.}

2.) 14 Jul 2023 13:27:34
The recruitment team should be on here. full of experts.

3.) 14 Jul 2023 13:30:55
If this is referring to my post, you’ve misinterpreted my question ed002. Most of us appreciate your input and values the info you share on potential targets

Have a good rest of the day

{Ed002's Note - It is not you Drogie.}

4.) 14 Jul 2023 13:44:46
Why do people spoil it for everyone else, ed2 gave us excellent information yesterday on player know one expected and then question it?

5.) 14 Jul 2023 13:53:33
I wholeheartedly agree with Drogie's view above re Ed002, I also completely value your input and the time you take to reply. Please don't let a vocal minority put you off posting.

To your initial point, Drogie, I think if we do end up losing so much experience from our midfield (a glance at BBC rumours suggests there are plans afoot for Fab, Hendo AND Thiago to leave, as well as Kelleher! ) then it would make sense to bring in some more experienced players, hence a link to Llorente.

One that has dropped off radar for a while is Kessie. I know that Barcelona need funds and it was rumoured he was available, but not sure if he's open to a move away?

{Ed002's Note - I suspect Kessie will go out on a loan or loan to buy deal.}

6.) 14 Jul 2023 13:58:20
Good point Zed ?.

7.) 14 Jul 2023 13:31:29
Hi ed, do you know why al ettifaq requesting jordan henderson for a free transfer. Hendo have a contract at Liverpool until 2025, how can al ettifaq request to buy hendo for a free transfer since he is still have a contract for another 2 years.

{Ed001's Note - they probably just hoped Liverpool would give him a free as a thank you for his service.}

8.) 14 Jul 2023 13:42:17
Ok cheers ed002.

9.) 14 Jul 2023 14:59:40
Thank you Ed002. I know that our last midfielder loan was less than successful for all parties (other than Juve! ), have you heard of Liverpool showing any recent interest in him, potentially as a loan or loan to buy?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

10.) 14 Jul 2023 15:33:21
From my time using this site, it appears the pattern I see, is people ask Ed02 a question. He gives an answer. If they don’t like his answer, they either bad mouth the player he has mentioned with a passive aggressive tone, or else they ask him the exact same question a day or two later and expect a different answer. It’s entertaining, but at the same time, give the poor man a break. He is doing a great job. Ever heard of a phrase, “don’t shoot the messenger”.

11.) 14 Jul 2023 16:13:15
Ed02 has been brilliant this year, and more tolerant than previously. I for one really appreciate the responses I’ve received to my questions. There’s certainly no bad mouthing anyone from my side. I am disappointed we are entertaining a move by Henderson but Fabinho is one we could replace with less impact.

12.) 14 Jul 2023 16:17:54

I think you may be remembering the old transfer committee from Brenda's days early in FSG ownership. I think they declared that they had a 24 YO and under buying guidance for the committee to build squad value. I'm going from memory, which is likely as bad as Billy's by now due to old age, but I think that went out in 2015.

13.) 14 Jul 2023 16:22:10
Somehow one club that I really like to hate is Atletco Madrid.

I don't want any of their players as long as they are coached by Diego Simeone. His team is anti football and all of them have to buy into his thugology to play.

Have to admit their keeper is really good but we got Becker. Would have loved to get him when we were left with Lord Kaurius and
Migns will let. :-)

17.) 14 Jul 2023 18:10:46
Hi Ed’s just wondering if I have upset any of the team? Replied to a couple of posts but not seen anything. Apologies if I have.

{Ed002's Note - No idea, sorry.}

18.) 14 Jul 2023 18:27:20
Why on earth would anyone complain about any of the Ed’s, most prominently Ed002 who clearly has sources and is kind enough to pass on information to us as fans - seriously WTF? chill the F out!

Not putting all posters in this category, just those that troll.

Ed002, vast majority appreciate you and your help - please keep it coming ??.

19.) 14 Jul 2023 20:25:56
There are a number of trolls on here who purposely attempt to p. Ed002 off with the pretext of being LFC 'fans'




Drogie's banter posts with other poster's replies to Drogie's banter posts


10 Nov 2023 12:22:34
Ed001, last night, a worrying reminder that Pep Linder's still has some influence over the tactics. It was like watching the team last season, this slow, laboured, aimless build up play with no intensity. Not mentioning the defending.


{Ed001's Note - it was not a good watch at all, but it wasn't a team that had played together a lot, so a fair bit of the problems are probably down to that.}

1.) 10 Nov 2023 12:47:49
Anyone heard any injury updates.

We’re potentially going into a game against the most Physically intense team in the league with 4 midfielders injured and 1 suspended which leaves us with Endo, Elliot and Szob.

Potential square pegs in round holes of Gakpo or Trent playing in there if needed.

2.) 10 Nov 2023 12:51:22
Good point ed001 but it wasn’t too dissimilar to Sunday mate…Both games zero intensity.

{Ed001's Note - fair point. It is worrying, without intensity any team is open to getting beat.}

3.) 10 Nov 2023 13:17:10
I hear what you say, Drogie, but I don't think last night's show was about tactics. We were crass from back to front, especially in defence. I've never rated Tsimikas and he still plays like he's celebrating his penalty against Chelsea. He makes Joey Jones look like Maldini. Its all been said about Matip, and to pair him with Quansah was a mistake waiting to happen. We got what we deserved from the game, but I'm not pointing a finger at Ljinders.

Onto Brentford. They will give us problems, for sure, and if we defend like we did last night we'll get turned over. All said, I still can't wait to take my seat.

4.) 10 Nov 2023 13:50:30
Any chance of a simple short review for this match Ed001? Understand if you don't wish to focus on this game again.

{Ed001's Note - I don't really have the time mate. The sites are so busy these days.}

5.) 10 Nov 2023 13:56:17
Well, that was terrible. I hear Edà1 on the part about it being a new team so some growing pains would happen. However, it looked so much like Lutton where it seemed the players looked disinterested and the tactics were again like Lutton, terrible.

Our attitude towards such games away from home is something I am actually worried about cos we do not come out flying out the traps anymore vs weaker teams away from home and this since last season. No intensity. Not guile. No sense of urgency and no fight. That's what concerns me along with the tactics that continue to be a menace to us more than the oppo. is. On to Brentford.

6.) 10 Nov 2023 17:15:55
Klopp latest comment on Trent quite funny. Journalist ask him whether Trent can be considered as option at midfield and Klopp said yes he can play there. But he added that if Trent do play at midfield, then Liv will lose one of the best RB in the world.

Then again if you look at the way we play right now, Trent is not playing as a regular RB. He is playing as both RB and midfield. So basically Liv already lost the quality of what Klopp said 'one of the best RB in the world' by not playing him as a regular RB.

7.) 10 Nov 2023 20:45:22
We can’t keep on pointing at Pep when things don’t look up to scratch.

8.) 10 Nov 2023 22:15:51
What happens if we go on and win the league and Europa this season. Does Linders get the plaudits or Klopp?

9.) 10 Nov 2023 23:09:15
Pep is nothing without Klopp. If he has the influence he has, is cos Klopp let him so whatever it is that's happening, it's on Klopp.

10.) 11 Nov 2023 03:01:54
Joe - Ibou - VVD - Tsimi
Dom - TAA - Ryan
Mo - Cody - Luis

Think that will be the starting line-up although iId have no problem if Quansah and / or Chambers started.



04 Jun 2023 07:13:49
Away from all the transfer speculation, on reflection, it has to be said, United were by far the better team before the first goal went in yesterday.


1.) 04 Jun 2023 07:17:44
Cracked me up man! ??.

2.) 04 Jun 2023 07:40:36
I thought the ref was Utds best player. ?.

3.) 04 Jun 2023 08:05:01
Haha love it. I'd only just cracked a beer open.

4.) 04 Jun 2023 11:14:45
OP, oh yeah they were, lol. There have been times this season where they have been the better team. UNTIL the other team decides to start actually playing and all hell breaks loose. Absolute LOL!



03 Jun 2023 08:14:34
So the Salford mancs will have plastic flags on the seats to boost the atmosphere at Wembley ? Are they Chelsea in disguise ?.


1.) 03 Jun 2023 09:04:56
Like the scousers with their hotels booked in Istanbul next Saturday. All dressed up and no where to go. The least Klopp could do is buy you all a drink whilst your there.

2.) 03 Jun 2023 10:28:31
SupaSub - it’s what you do when reaching numerous European cup finals - last time I was in Istanbul 2005, I had to take a package holiday to Bulgaria, coaches through the border to Turkey - lesson learned —- and all the mancs are moaning about getting to London ??.

3.) 03 Jun 2023 10:49:48
Come on now Drogie, that road from Kent to London take ages, those United fans will be stuck in traffic for hours.

4.) 03 Jun 2023 11:20:11
Haha true.

5.) 03 Jun 2023 11:40:41
Just hope United can beat the most disgusting side in football. I could never support a club that cheats on the scale City has they are as bad as the Doping Russians in other sports. Come on United come on Inter! Cheats should never prosper.

6.) 03 Jun 2023 12:00:24
Me too St8talker, something I thought I would never say, wanting Utd to win a trophy but I just can not stand City. Pity there can’t be a draw ?.

7.) 03 Jun 2023 12:07:24
Money doesn’t buy success.

City have done it through blood sweat and tears ?.

8.) 03 Jun 2023 12:18:54
No way, can't be wanting Utd to win a trophy EVER! Citeh are cheats alright but they have to win today for me even so. Its just why i couldn't be giving a toss about Klopps trips to blackpool, no point been whiter than white.

{Ed001's Note - no point? What a stupid take on it. Embarrassing to suggest there is no point in not cheating. It is no wonder the world is in a mess with moronic attitudes like that. I mean **** everyone else, all that matters is me hey? Selfish or what?}

9.) 03 Jun 2023 12:32:42
It’s really hard to decide the best outcome today, like I can’t ever hope for a United win, I just can’t do it. So does that mean I’m hoping for a city win- what an awful season!

10.) 03 Jun 2023 12:39:58
Hahaha epic.
Man United have to win. Seven Haag won’t want to be the Man Utd manager who let the biggest defeat of all time happen (vs Liverpool) and the manager who let the Treble lose all its glory (vs Man City) in the SAME season!
He’d Go down as the worst manager they’ve ever had in history, they simply have to win there’s nothing else.

11.) 03 Jun 2023 13:32:44
Really not bothered can’t stand either side the only reason it will be on is the g/ f
Has bets on.

12.) 03 Jun 2023 13:35:47
If Liverpool are not in a contest then I completely block it out. I don’t care who wins.
Maybe ‘just stop oil’ will stop the final?

13.) 03 Jun 2023 13:44:37
Str8talker you mean like constantly tapping up players like Klopp does! Or is that not cheating.

14.) 03 Jun 2023 15:36:14
Even though it pinches like hell, I would have to agree that ManU should win, hopefully. This vaunted squad that ManCity has built is all based on lies and cheating and gaining continues undue and unfair advantages over every body else. In essence, they have been buying their titles and cups in plain sight.

15.) 03 Jun 2023 17:39:14
Cheats or not, I never want them red mancs to win anything….

16.) 03 Jun 2023 20:38:19
Anything City win and have won is tainted. Hoping the PL give them what they deserve. Not holding my breath. Slow news day for me I don't even bother to look.



12 Apr 2023 14:25:38
Hi Ed001,

Hope you're well mate.

Just heard an interview with Tony Evans and he mentioned some of the players aren't listening to Klopp and and he needs to bridge things. He also said the club aren't in a great place at the moment from the owners to the players to the manager.

He's pretty adamant we won't sign Bellingham as we need more than one player improve the team and that the info ( regarding Bellingham ) is from the club to dampen down expectations

Not sure how close he is to us at the moment.


{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}

1.) 12 Apr 2023 14:44:38
If true then something seems to have changed significantly here in terms of the team spirit. Management job here is to find out who is driving that and get them out of the club asap.

2.) 12 Apr 2023 14:52:41
Same guy who has spent the last few years making out the owners are the best thing since sliced bread and calling anyone who criticised them 'spoilt brats'. If you ready a Tony Evans article it looks like a year 8's English homework. The guy is clueless.

3.) 12 Apr 2023 17:06:52
OP, I wouldn't believe a damn thing I read about LFC, Klopp or the players in the media if I were you. Nobody knows a damn thing about us cos there are essentially NO leaks hence, journos just do a lot of guess work and make it out to be true and our fans bite on these like rabid piranhas. The journos know nothing so they are left with spreading lies and half truths. Im over it, personally.

4.) 12 Apr 2023 17:44:58
Oli - the names Drogie not Op ?.

?Who put the ball in United's net, who put the ball in United's net, who put the ball in United's net! Half the feck**g team did ?.


1.) 08 Mar 2023 02:34:33
Couldnt we sing the first line seven times instead of three?

2.) 08 Mar 2023 10:09:49
Darwin, I thought that would be a better idea when I read the OP's lyrics.
