Morning ed002,

You mentioned MacAllister is on Madrid's list for 2025, why specifically 2025?



{Ed002's Note - Clubs identify players they are interested in who aren't immediately available (e.g. in the case of Real Madrid, Florian Wirtz) or are deemed too expensive (e.g. Erling Haaland). Clubs will hope to see players run down their contract if entering the final year (e.g. Trent Alexander-Arnold).}

1.) 22 May 2024 09:05:17
Ok thanks ed002, I understand regarding Trent, I’m just trying to see why MacAllister would be available in 2025, does his contract run down then too? cheers Drogie.

{Ed002's Note - He is a Real Madrid target for 2025 - it doesn't mean Liverpool would look to sell. It is no different to Liverpool having targets that clubs don't want to sell.}

2.) 22 May 2024 10:05:11
Imagine how Madrid could look in 2025. Alonso coming in as manager. Camavinga Tchouameni Mac Allister Valverde Bellingham Wirtz in midfield Vinicius Mbappe Haaland Rodrygo Guler Endrick up top ?.

3.) 22 May 2024 10:35:04
Or Klopp, maybe?

4.) 22 May 2024 10:11:52
Ed02 rumors of Alexis has a 60 million release clause in his contract? I don't remember him having that in there?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing noted on the TMS. He could of course have a separate agreement with Liverpool.}

5.) 22 May 2024 18:11:53
Would Klopp go to Real, or would he choose an ailing Barca? I can see him ending up at one of those two.



16 May 2024 21:30:29
Evening ed002 .

Just a quick question, did liverpool table bid for Aurelien Tchouameni whilst at Monaco? And did we agree personal terms?

On another note, I think Rice has been a very good acquisition for Arsenal, were we ever interested in the player?



{Ed002's Note - No, he was tapped up by Klopp who flew down to meeting. The government blocked a move to Chelsea. Regardless of being an ex-Chelsea player, Liverpool had no interest in Rice.}

1.) 17 May 2024 07:34:56
Rice would've been perfect for us, I've thought that for years.

2.) 17 May 2024 14:54:29
Agreed Digger. He would have been perfect for us. Arsenal are fortunate to have landed him and is definitely a key reason why they are still in the title race going into the final game of the season.

3.) 17 May 2024 15:42:27
Ed do you think all the tapping up will stop now with Klopp gone or is it a club problem.

{Ed002's Note - It will stope hopefully.}



28 Mar 2024 21:21:45
As I understand Paul Joyce isn't so close to the club anymore, but he's just posted this.

Liverpool latest: Xabi Alonso now unlikely to feature on final shortlist to replace Jurgen Klopp.


1.) 28 Mar 2024 23:46:00
I’d say that was reliable. He still gets more right than others.



14 Feb 2024 11:33:45
Morning Ed002.

Have tried a search.

Dan Ashworth, Liverpool shown any interest? Appointing a decent Sporting Director is really key going forward imo .



{Ed002's Note - Dan Ashworth (DoF) Another option for both Manchester United and Liverpool as DoF but Newcastle will seek significant compensation. I expect Manchester United to push for Ashworth as an alternative to Paul Mitchell. Liverpool have preferred options and will likely look elsewhere.}

1.) 14 Feb 2024 13:16:36
Thanks Ed002…

Who are the preferred options?


{Ed002's Note - As previously explained - I don't think anything has changed. The club have already lost out on a couple of preferred options.}

2.) 14 Feb 2024 14:55:05
Hi Ed02, I've tried searching, who are the club's remaining preferred options, if you wouldn't mind, please?

{Ed002's Note - The preferred choices are not interested

3.) 14 Feb 2024 17:38:27
Tim Steidten

“I've heard that I am supposed to be on the list at Liverpool. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world, so it's an honour. But so far nobody from LFC has contacted me yet. “

„I generally feel very comfortable at West Ham. I quickly realised how intense this league is. Accordingly, we signed the right players in the last transfer windows. The squad is strong, so we can achieve our goals. “

„I am looking forward facing the next weeks and months until the end of the season. Of course we are already planing the next window. What happens to the future, we will see”

Come and get me plea?

4.) 15 Feb 2024 06:44:55
Ashworth informed NUFC that he was approached by MU. so what makes MU so special that they can tap up Ashworth


5.) 15 Feb 2024 10:56:33
With due respect to Newcastle, United are a far bigger club.

6.) 15 Feb 2024 12:57:29
Thanks for your replies ed002…
If the preferred options aren’t interested, where does that leave us? I think it’s a really important role that the club needs to get right…


{Ed002's Note - It leaves the club with a shorter shortlist.}

7.) 15 Feb 2024 19:09:42
Stevie G maybe.

{Ed025's Note - he would be a DoM Ace...Director of Misery.. :)

8.) 16 Feb 2024 00:09:19
@Victor, you seem to be implying that it’s ok for bigger clubs to ‘tap up’ resources from smaller clubs. Isn’t tapping up the same for everybody?

9.) 16 Feb 2024 05:46:31
Dear WDW.

You should know by now that LFC are the only club who "tap up" others who are employed elsewhere.

All other football clubs are run very much down the middle and don't dabble in such thuggery

PS. please read the above post with total sarcasm and a little bit of humor. Just in case people take me the wrong way and call me an idiot and have me banned from the site and any other football forum ?.

10.) 16 Feb 2024 12:39:35
Is Paul Mitchell back under consideration Ed002? Reports are that he’s not an option for United anymore.

{Ed002's Note - Not for Liverpool.}



30 Oct 2023 22:31:02
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?

Evening ed25 mate ( if you're about )

Read that Everton are needing to take out loans to pay the players, can't remember if it was on the site or the news paper, is this correct mate?


{Ed025's Note - not that i have heard Drogie but because of our financial plight we will be hearing all sorts of rumours mate..

1.) 15 Jan 2024 18:27:24
I thought it was quite common for businesses to get short term corporate finance to pay dues. I would imagine in the football business it would be all the more likely as the earnings from the league finish, broadcast revenue, player sales and season tickets etc come in all at once. I didn't mention any tournament winnings because don't think there is any chance of any of that coming in ?.

2.) 15 Jan 2024 18:35:02
Yeah hanif, one assumes that every club in England has an overdraft facility at the very least.

It's really only a problem if they're taking out a 5 year loan to pay wages for a month or something. And then can't repay them early when they get prize money. That'll result in them being FUBAR fairly quick.

3.) 15 Jan 2024 19:44:06
At least your a positive bloke Ed and always plenty of honest humour on this site
I never enjoy seeing this play out in the media as many journalists wouldn’t know what the truth is and how dangerous lies are.

4.) 15 Jan 2024 20:05:08
Just wondering, if they have any players that we could take off their hands and bung them a few quid, but I am struggling to identify any.

{Ed002's Note - Everton have been borrowing money to pay the wages for several months.}

5.) 15 Jan 2024 20:15:25
Branthwaite all day long. If he was for sale.

6.) 15 Jan 2024 20:38:51
Thanks for confirming ed002 - I knew I’d read it somewhere.



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 ?.

5.) 12 Apr 2023 22:40:03
Sound, OP. Oh, I mean Drogie.

Ed001 is absolutely spot on, our intensity dropped when the first team players came back

Maybe some should get to a game, then you’ll see exactly what ed001 is saying regarding the slow, controlled Laborious build up with no width and a congested midfield. Only when you watch the team live can you see the true picture of the game.

I was at Spurs away for Klopp’s first game and it’s like chalk and cheese what we were watching for the last few seasons.
