Hi Ed

Are there any chance of Mignolet move out of the club at the end of this season? If yes
Any players that the Club is looking to buying for Back up GK?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - It is in the hands of Mignolet. If he decides to move on then Liverpool should look for someone who can be trusted, is older, homegrown and can help with the younger goalkeepers and youth coaching.}

1.) 10 May 2019 10:25:45
Anybody know how grabara has fared on loan? I know he's only a kid and should be loaned again next season for game time. Just curious if anybody knows how he's performed?

2.) 10 May 2019 10:59:41
I have been passively following Grabara, and overall it has been a great experience.

There was a game where he was at fault for both goals, but credit where it’s due he’s picked himself up and is helping them push for a Europa league spot.

I think we will see him make another step up next season

Completely agree with the back up keeper, experienced/ homegrown. Any suggestions?

3.) 10 May 2019 11:10:24
Grabara has impressed massively in Aarhus this season. Probably the best performing keeper in the Danish league. AGF hope to keep him but realize that it may be difficult, as he is clearly capable of playing at a higher level.

4.) 10 May 2019 11:27:07
How about Wily Caballero Ed002? He'd provide good cover, knows the league, would be cost effective and has experience.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over WC but someone along those lines. Perhaps a tad younger.}

5.) 10 May 2019 11:32:28
That's great to hear, cheers for the updates. Let's hope the best choices are made for him to develop in the future.

6.) 10 May 2019 11:43:27
Eds do ye know of any clubs who've shown interest in mignolet by any chance?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant whilst it is in his hands.}

7.) 10 May 2019 11:50:30
How is a question asking if clubs are interested in Mignolet, on a post regarding Mignolet leaving, unimportant?

{Ed002's Note - Because I have explained it is in the hands of Mignolet.}

8.) 10 May 2019 12:19:25
Would be amazed if Migs is still here next season.

9.) 10 May 2019 13:16:53
Dudek anyone? Heard he’s forming a YMCA tribute band but keeps getting the moves wrong.

10.) 10 May 2019 13:23:30
I wonder if Begovic would be a good alternative. Homegrown, 31, and looks like Bournemouth has it's goalie of the future. Might be cheap. Though still might want to find a starting role somewhere else.

11.) 10 May 2019 13:29:39
But still knowing if teams are interested is relevant at this point.

{Ed002's Note - Nah. It is of no relevance whilst Mignolet has yet to make a decision.}

12.) 10 May 2019 13:34:11
are there any updates on who liverpool are interested in as a potential mignolet replacement?

also, can we rule out any possibility that pepe reina returns?

{Ed002's Note - This is going around in circles.}

13.) 10 May 2019 15:51:58
If it's in Mignolet's hands there's a good chance he'll drop it.

Sorry couldn't help it😁.

14.) 10 May 2019 16:33:18
You spin me right round Reina right round!

15.) 10 May 2019 16:44:40
Even his transfer request slips through the net.

16.) 10 May 2019 18:33:34
Thank you for the info Ed. Although I have a q. Will Migs play the role of the older 3rd choice keeper, or will the youngsters fall back down the pecking order?

Good day.

{Ed002's Note - No, nothing weird will be going on.}

17.) 10 May 2019 20:26:56
Ed2 any knowledge or opinion on the young Irish keeper at LFC?

I read a report a while ago that Klopp was quite amazed by him?

{Ed002's Note - I can’t help, sorry. Edooa may have a view.}

18.) 10 May 2019 21:44:42
Wonder if Burnley's Pope would be open to a move as number 2. Guessing it us unlikely if he has England ambitions. Maybe Alex McCarthy with Gunn nailing the number 1 slot at Southampton?

19.) 11 May 2019 04:18:38
J. Hart as backup and Andy Carroll on Free.

20.) 11 May 2019 17:38:38
Ed002, is the older, trusted, homegrown goalkeeper who can help coach the youth potentially Joe Hart?

21.) 14 May 2019 05:38:34
Niall42 caoimhin Kelleher is actually from the same place as me. What's amazing about him is he was always a striker, regularly scoring, . One game when he was 14 or 15 he was chucked in goal after the keeper got injured, his first ever time playing GK. Couple of years later and he's employed by Liverpool.

Amazing I think, he often says if he's facing an attacker, he thinks in the mindset of when he was the striker looking to shoot and that gives him a split second to make an early move.

I hope he goes on loan next season and can get minutes under his belt. A very humble down to earth lad with great professionalism will only help his career.

22.) 14 May 2019 10:14:29
You're right there Har_red92, and with Caoimhin and Travers at Bournemouth it's nice to know Ireland's goalkeeping situation looks so bright for the future. A good loan for Kelleher would be beneficial, but needs to be considered carefully. Grabara's is the ideal example, he's having a great time in Denmark, keeping 4 clean sheets so far. He's helped AGF into the two-legged playoff final for the chance to progress to the Europa League playoff. All really good and important experience for him and apparently he is visibly growing in stature and confidence with every game. Shamal George on the other hand didn't play at all at Tranmere, for reasons that I'm not aware of. I think Kelleher is good enough to have an impact at a smaller club next season, but finding the right one will be crucial.

Haha, and yes Ed002 that was a weird question above. Migs is "the best number two in the Premier League" according to Klopp, so he certainly won't be third choice and we're only talking about someone coming in if he decides to move on for regular football. But his contract runs to 2021 so he may decide to stay, as has been repeatedly mentioned it's up to him.

I think the amount we're discussing the backup goalkeeper situation speaks volumes for how little work our squad will need this summer.

23.) 14 May 2019 11:28:52
Yeah a league 1 or 2 would be realistic if he can be given game time there. It's amazing he only ever played keeper for the first time a few years ago, has that ever been the case with other top level keepers in the past I wonder?



16 Feb 2018 06:43:42
Hi Eds

As we know Pepa Reina will has contract expire in this summer.
Is there any chance to bring him back to Anfield?

And Is he interested return back to Anfield?

Thank you


{Ed001's Note - why on earth would we want him back after the way he acted to force his way out?}

1.) 16 Feb 2018 08:34:58
Sweet Jesus 🙈.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 16:54:37
Want to move forward not backwards.

3.) 16 Feb 2018 18:40:16
Still better than any other keeper we have on the books.

4.) 16 Feb 2018 22:41:23
Let’s bring Benitez back as well.

5.) 17 Feb 2018 19:42:48
Benitez is a proven winner. Dufus cooment that.

6.) 17 Feb 2018 21:03:25
How about Fernando Torres? Heard anything about that eds? / s.

{Ed001's Note - he is just waiting on Xabi Alonso and Luis Garcia to complete their returns before he signs mate.}

7.) 17 Feb 2018 21:38:34
“Fans” constantly looking backwards.

8.) 18 Feb 2018 07:20:07
I have heard we were looking to see if Pegguy Arphexad wants to come back aswell any truth in this eds?



28 May 2014 08:05:12

How is situation about Assaidi? Do Stoke still want to buy him?
If yes, is it possible if we can agree with them at cash plus a player (like as J. Butland)?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have set a price of €9M on Assaidi - I cannot see any Dutch side paying that which will see off interest from Twente. Genoa and Stoke are also interested but again, they would probably not be keen.}

1.) 28 May 2014 09:25:39
We seem to be working in the extremes.

Set a very high price for a player we own and we want to sell and offer a very low amount for a player we want.

2.) 28 May 2014 09:41:39
7 million pounds? So double what we paid for him, makes sense his value has increased but that seems a bit steep. 6 million and you got a deal! :)

3.) We always let our players go for cheap. Maybe the club have realised this. I just hope we don't annoy everybody we are selling to in the same way we annoy everyone we are buying from.

4.) IMO its time we got tough in the transfer window's with our players.
If other teams are asking for over the odds for there guy's were after then we should do the same.
Assaidi has had a good season at Stoke and his value has increased. And while I don't think his value is €9 mill its great to see LFC not allowing him to go for a stupid fee like we have done in the past.
I can see us lowering that figure a little and think he will end up going to Stoke if they are prepared to pay around the €7.5 mill mark. A nice little profit on the player that will help towards buying the players needed in the summer.


5.) 28 May 2014 11:31:08
This reminds me of a quote from a football history book I have, with managers discussing their respective chairmen.
'The problem I have' said the first manager, ' is you have a player you want to sell because he's not good enough, the chairman slaps a £25,000 price tag on his head'
'Aye', says the second manager, ' and if you find a player that'll improve your side, the chairman tells you you've only got £15,000 to get him'

Quote won't be word perfect but anyb

6.) I completely agree about us having let go of players for cheap in the past. Most of it was actually because the players were really not that good as we thought they were when we bought them, were given a huge wage by Rafa for a squad role or simply because we overpaid for them.

7.) Exactly boys sell high and buy low. No brainer when you run a football club like a business.

We finally toughen up



29 Apr 2014 06:36:45
Good morning EDs

May I ask you some questions?

1. I saw some reports say that Liverpool are in pole position to sign Adam Lallana in this summer. Do we have any chance to sign him now? As far as I followed your previous replies he seem like not to move to join us.

2. Liverpool are interesting in Konoplyaka, Bertrand, Parejo, Tello, Huges and Rojo. Do you have any addition names would like to mention for us?

3. Macca still exist in the page? Long time no see his/her post.

Thank you and Best regards.


{Ed001's Note - 1. It is unlikely, though it will depend on what happens there in the summer with regards to the manager, as to whether he will move on. Are we in pole position? No. There is no pole position at the moment, he is waiting to see what is happening before even considering offers. The stories are all the usual make believe fiction from hacks.

2. Ryan Colclough (Crewe) though unlikely to make any kind of move for him. Only one I can think of right now.

3. He is very busy these days so doesn't tend to post much. He has my number and BBM pin if he ever wanted to pass anything on, though we don't get time to talk much.}

1.) 2. Cuadrado, Fischer, Lacazette, Son, and earlier, Firmino.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

2.) No problemo!

3.) Trillion thanks to you all, EDs and The real AG

4.) You still have a Blackberry? And yes, that's all I got from that answer! ;)

5.) 30 Apr 2014 13:51:19
I always see Lallana getting subbed by Southampton I wonder does he have a habit of drifting out of games and is he consistent enough I'm not shooting him down as I haven't seen enough of him playing to know but he was good against us even though we won 3_0

Hi Eds

Any interest in Goncalo Guedes from Liverpool?
I saw your mention about him in European page.

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t think I said anything about Liverpool.}

1.) 04 Nov 2017 11:12:57
That the kid on loan to Valencia? Looks a special player to be fair.



15 Aug 2017 04:20:34
Hi Eds,

I saw your reply about our rejected bid of Koulibaly. At this time, any chance that LFC would be back for bidding him again?

Thank you


{Ed002's Note - I would very much doubt it.}



27 May 2016 05:25:22
Hi Ed

I think, we are long time no see any information from Macca.
Do you know where he is?
In case you can contact him, please let him know I miss him very much.

We are waiting any update from him.

Thank you and best regards,



{Ed001's Note - I will try and remember to message him later, he is a very busy man, and pass on your message.}

1.) 27 May 2016 07:58:40
Thanks Federal I was thinking the same thing.

2.) 27 May 2016 08:35:56
A transfer window without Macca is no fun.

3.) 27 May 2016 11:03:10
How is Macca Ed hope he is keeping fit and well? As has been said its not the same without him at transfer window time.

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was. I will check though when I can be bothered to get up and get my phone.}



02 Jan 2015 06:23:26
Dear EDs

You mentioned in next years (2017), Liverpool would have a new investor. Are they DIC? Or they are not interested on Liverpool anymore.
If not DIC, would be possible to share your view in who would be the new potential investor?

Thank you


{Ed002's Note - Nobody knows who the next owners will be but it won't be DIC.}

1.) 02 Jan 2015 12:05:56
So Ed002, do you believe the Americans will sell the club in 2017 or just look to add an Investor to help cover the costs of the Stadium expansion and others ?

{Ed002's Note - They will be looking to sell. I have no idea what you are talking about in terms of "adding an investor".}



01 Jan 2015 08:12:02
Happy New Year EDs
Wish you all and families have wealthy and healthy.

I need info support from you EDs.
As I follow your answers in topic of investigation process from the owner.
Do you have any informatuon that when the process will be finalised? (In Jan, Feb or Mar)
And what would be going on for a new set up? And if we have to change the head coach, I know you mentioned to De Boer is the first option but who are other options in case De Boer deny us again?

Thank you and Best Regards


{Ed002's Note - I can't answer questions about timing. I would not discount anyone - Benitez, Laudrup, Leblanc ...}

World transfer record with the 6th position.
And Matic is a super world class midfield in the universe.
Because his 27 assist number is better and more than 44.
