Hi Ed, I think we previously had interest in Cornet. Is that interest completely gone. Also is Tsimikas likely to stay and play backup to Robbo again.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - Kostas Tsimikas (LB) Liverpool see him as a makeweight and are tring to use him to reduce the cash value of contracts. Maybe Adam Lewis or Beck have a chance.}


1.) 24 Jun 2022 20:34:46
How does being a makeweight work Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - A replacement for cash - so £10M plus KS equals £18M.}


2.) 24 Jun 2022 20:54:38
I'm completely lost on this one! Are we keeping kostas? Love him.


3.) 24 Jun 2022 20:50:01
Ah ok thanks Ed002.


4.) 24 Jun 2022 21:04:58
Adam Lewis just went on loan to league 2 ed002 so he is not even close to being good enough am afraid.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to get rid of all of the youngsters if they are not good enough.}


5.) 24 Jun 2022 21:52:00
I love him as well Marty but I think what Ed002 is saying is that Kostas maybe included in any future player deal to make up for cash but please tell me if I'm wrong.


6.) 24 Jun 2022 21:19:47
Who might we want to use a makeweight for Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Anone.}


7.) 24 Jun 2022 21:35:33
well we just sent him on loan to league 2. so maybe Owen beck can step up :)


8.) 24 Jun 2022 23:15:45
He is by far better in the final 3rs than Robbo. He's decent all round to be fair. Got to be worth 25 mil.


9.) 24 Jun 2022 23:57:45
I have great time for Kostas.


10.) 25 Jun 2022 05:02:17
The thing is - as we have seen with Div and Taki - there is no point in keeping players, or at last players who have ambitions to play regularly, if they aren’t going to get regular game time for us.

Look at our options at left back. We have Robbo, Tsimi, Owen Beck and Adam Lewis and there are probably another two or three working their way through the youth ranks. basically we need two players who specialise in the position and a more ‘all rounder’ who can cover if both first and second choice are injured. We have at least four players who can fill the role. At what point does Tsimi’s (like Taki’s) patience run out.

Look at the options at right back. We have TAA (at 23 probably the best in the world who will only improve to new levels over the next 4 or 5 years) . Ramsay, who most people who have seen him (and quite a lot who haven’t) think is the best thing since sliced bread, Neco Williams, Conor Bradley, Sepp Van den Berg, Joe G (as the all rounder) . Again we need two with the all-rounder as back-up.

Whilst it is great that we have so many options there are probably better options for those who aren’t going to be regulars at Liverpool. If we can make money money and also help youngsters onto a better career path then I’m very happy with that.


11.) 25 Jun 2022 07:35:20
In all fairness West Derby, I don't think you can just list all the players at the club and call them genuine options. Robbo and tsimakas are our left backs, trent and maybe Ramsey now right backs. Joe is a cb, who can play there, if klopp keeps him even, nico will likely leave, sepp the same and will likely go on loan again (before being sold in a few years) . And the rest might get a game in the league Cup, there's only so many places on the bench, we've a big squad so it won't be often a young left or right back will be on it to get mins when you have players like milner, he do, Joe who you trust to cover.


12.) 25 Jun 2022 08:47:48
Thing will other clubs is they rotate more then Klopp.
Most clubs would have given Robbo more breaks and tsimikas more minutes he is that good as a replacement.
The only irk I have about Klopp is other then his preffered set of 15 16 players we don’t see rotation as much as we should. In terms of substitution and starts.
Taxi OX divo and tsimikas are most impacted by this and I think they all should leave for more regular playing minutes. Or if they are happy collect medals and paycheck with less play time.


13.) 25 Jun 2022 09:02:04
Kostas is going nowhere this summer folks - nothing to see here.


14.) 25 Jun 2022 09:27:49
You can’t just sell every player who isn’t playing 30+ games a season. Kostas seems really happy at the club. I doubt we value him at £8m as Ed suggested. Outrageous figures.


15.) 25 Jun 2022 09:30:33
Kostas is a great player, he hardly gets game time because of Robbo, but Kostas is a much better the crosser of the ball than Robertson. Robertson is a low across the ground but Kostas is more higher up and direct. Defending and tracking back is where Robertson is beats Kostas outright

Love him to stay longer at the club.


16.) 25 Jun 2022 23:06:59
Kostas will get more starts this season.


 

 

12 Nov 2021 08:28:54
Hi Ed mate,
Do you see us making a push for Sanches and Traore in January.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - Renato Sanches (CM) Lille are happy to let the player move on due to the constant muscle injuries he suffers; they wanted €20M cash or €30M with payments spread out although that could increase if Jorge Mendes can find multiple bidders or if there is no sale in January. Klopp has praised him in the past and he would be a more affordable replacement for Wijnaldum, but interest is not yet firm again. Barcelona had a sustained interest but they have moved on. I had thought prior interest of Wolves would likely have left with NES but they could still take a chance on him joining on a loan to buy deal after his recent injury - they may even be in a position to look for a cheaper straight cash deal in January. Milan may provide an option but would rather save money and utilise loanees Tommaso Pobega and Yacine Adli to cover for the departing Kessie. The concern would be injury issues and, although talented, he is inconsistent.
Adama Treore (RW) Valencia, Leeds and West Ham have asked Wolves about his availability and it would not be a surprise to see some interest from Spurs. Could potentially still interest Klopp who has had the hots for him before. Wolves will want a new contract agreed. Liverpool interest has not gone away and Adama Traore is not keen on a new contract at Wolves. If a move were to happen, one of the "front three" would certainly leave in the summer. To fund it Liverpool would either need to sell players, Wolves to accept a payment plan again or they would have to borrow the money. As I have said before, Klopp really likes him and it is certainly a possibility but there is little return in goals and Sarr might be a better option in that respect.


1.) 12 Nov 2021 11:42:21
We see this “constantly injured player needs a move” scenario a lot.

I was wondering if anyone could think of a notable time where it actually worked out for the buyer? Danny ings maybe but his injuries were long term. I’m talking guys that can’t stay off the treatment table like Sturridge.

{Ed002's Note - Michael Essien?}


2.) 12 Nov 2021 11:52:36
Regrettably it is entirely likely that we’re looking at wasting money on these two, which is mind blowing given that Sanches isn’t capable of playing half a season without going on a long term sicky and Traore couldn’t score goals if you made the goals 10 feet wider either side and 10 feet taller and insisted that all keepers were the same height as Lorenzo Insigne.

JWH might as well light as just burn a huge pile of cash outside the front of Anfield as sign either of those two.


3.) 12 Nov 2021 12:09:02
Talk in the Echo that Xavi at Barcelona may be interested in Thiago.
That could be a better fit for him than Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Thiago Alcantara (CM) Could be sacraficed to make space for additions.}


4.) 12 Nov 2021 13:37:08
That’s a good shout Ed. He had a pretty good run didn’t he 😂.


5.) 12 Nov 2021 15:24:36
In fairness to Essien, he’d largely been ever present for Lyon before he joined Chelsea, it was only when he ruptured his cruciate at Chelsea that he started being a bit injury prone.

Sanches has barely ever been available for half the games in a season whoever he has played for and never played more than 24 games in a league season, ever. The bloke was injured right at the start of this season for two months. That should be a huge red flag.

The only other time I can think buying a player with an iffy injury record has paid off was Chelsea taking a punt on Demba Ba. Though that didn’t work out well for us.

Thing is, we cannot afford to make the mistake of punting on injury prone footballers hoping that they might miraculously stay fit. A footballer is of absolutely no use if all they do is occupy the treatment table.

{Ed001's Note - Ba did not have an iffy injury record, he had a degenerative knee condition.}


6.) 12 Nov 2021 20:19:40
If I was a betting man I would not be at all surprised to see TA going back to Barcelona.

{Ed0666's Note - they have less money than us mate. I wouldn’t bet on it.


7.) 12 Nov 2021 20:47:45
Gundogan?


8.) 12 Nov 2021 21:05:56
I knew it was something injury related that put buyers off.


9.) 13 Nov 2021 03:24:27
If we get rid of Thiago and replace him with Sanches and Traore there are people on here who are going to need our help with their therapy programs.


10.) 13 Nov 2021 08:28:10
There are people on here who need help with therapy programs anyway WDW!


11.) 13 Nov 2021 09:28:20
If we sold Thiago and brought in those two, the recruitment team should be given their p45’s. They’re not players to sign if we have any intention of competing for the title.


12.) 13 Nov 2021 10:28:35
VVVV if you read half the posts on here we're not competing for the title anyway and will be lucky to finish in the Top 4.


13.) 13 Nov 2021 12:30:01
@VVVV - genuine question - in pushing on for nearly a season and a half, ignoring Thiago’s reputation, would you say that he has been a genuine, consistent force in our midfield? Being honest, I think he has been the stand out player on two, maybe three occasions.


14.) 13 Nov 2021 13:41:34
He has been Keita standard so far.


15.) 13 Nov 2021 15:48:11
I don’t think Thiago has lived up to his reputation. But that said, selling him to bring in a midfielder who is technically inferior and has a worse injury record, as well as bringing in the least effective winger operating in European football (if not the world football), that would be stupid beyond belief.

Oh mane mane, well Sanches and Traore aren’t players you’d bring in if you wanted to get top four either! They have a distinct whiff of Spurs about them.


16.) 13 Nov 2021 18:13:24
Keita and Ox need to be sold before Thiago leaves.


17.) 14 Nov 2021 01:57:33
I think Thiago played very well last third of last season, once he'd settled into the team and wasn't having to play the no. 6 role cos Fabinho was at center back.


18.) 14 Nov 2021 04:43:32
For me he played better towards the end of last season but very well only now and then. To be honest I was hoping for / expected more.


19.) 14 Nov 2021 12:35:34
Tbh out of our current crop of midfielders I do think we need to move 1 or 2 on who are injury prone. Fabinho and hendo - outside of Jones and Elliot - are the only two id say are 100% not for sale, excluding Milner as I don’t think anyone would ‘buy’ him.

If it meant bringing in a more reliable player fitness wise, I’d be fine seeing any of Thiago Keita and ox go, with Keita go - however in a purely financial sense, this may be the only time we could recuperate any money for Thiago with his age .


20.) 14 Nov 2021 17:58:15
He’s flopped. Like Keita. We’ve replaced Gini a couple of times and made a bit of Twit of it.


21.) 16 Nov 2021 05:01:06
I would let both Ox and Thiago go.
Keep Keita for the rest of the season and then get rid of him in the summer too!
I would hope Klopp reinforces big time in the summer, and I would personally go for Neuhaus and one other.


 

 

25 Jul 2021 10:58:59
Hi Ed, has our interest in Cantwell now gone.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


1.) 25 Jul 2021 21:02:39
Thankfully.


 

 

10 Jul 2021 14:50:06
Is Grujic deal to porto complete Ed.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - Marco Grujic (DM/CM) will be available but at €20M which could mean Porto will now ask for another year on loan and an obligation to buy. Hertha Berlin may offer an option. His agent says Sporting Lisbon have spoken to him about availability. If the price is reduced to about €15M then a sale to his preferred Porto will happen.}


1.) 10 Jul 2021 15:10:49
Thank you ed002.


2.) 10 Jul 2021 15:16:40
Lads been tossed pillar to post by LFC after been promised the works! Always priced out of it just let him move on with his career and life.


3.) 10 Jul 2021 15:22:19
It’s been far from ideal. But keeping things in perspective he probably has a better life than most of the world.


4.) 10 Jul 2021 15:27:47
Who promised him the works Jay?

{Ed002's Note - Klopp.}


5.) 10 Jul 2021 15:45:30
He's had the last 3 seasons without klopp "messing him around" to put himself in the frame for a permanent move somewhere. All this while getting paid fortunes to do a job he loves. like Mark says above, there's worst lives.


6.) 10 Jul 2021 15:45:30

7.) 10 Jul 2021 16:19:29
I don’t think Klopp has messed him about his had loads of preseason to prove himself and loads of loan move where we have set a price of about £20m and nobody has wanted to pay that so if he has not done enough to be worth that he ain’t getting in are team end of. Why is it when we sign players and they don’t workout it’s all ways Klopp’s fault players need to step up to the next level.


8.) 10 Jul 2021 16:38:07
Somebody mess me around for the same money please.


9.) 10 Jul 2021 16:14:02
You should always listen to your Dad, i remember his old man didn't want him to come here.


10.) 10 Jul 2021 17:26:56
If he had Jordon Henderson’s attitude he would be in the first 11. You could argue he has messed Liverpool around by not reaching his full potential. He has had more than enough chances both pre season and loans. Nobody to blame except Grujic.


11.) 10 Jul 2021 18:12:34
It doesn't always have to be someone messing about, does it? Some things just turn out that way. Victor Moses was on Chelsea's books for 9 long years. Played for them for only 3 seasons, and was on loan for 6 seasons with 6 different teams. Did any of all that happen against his will or the will of the club? I doubt it. It's all discussed and agreed to.


12.) 10 Jul 2021 20:11:55
With you there ArAy I'd say this happens at every club with every signing. I do find it unfortunate do like him as a player.


13.) 10 Jul 2021 21:08:10
It's been said on here that his attitude in training was not the best.


14.) 10 Jul 2021 21:33:48
Heard that too Barry to be fair. Perhaps he was promised the earth on the condition he put the effort in. Can’t imagine any coach doing it just for kicks.


15.) 10 Jul 2021 22:47:09
He had issues at Cardiff Bledd.


 

 

10 Jun 2021 21:18:32
Well Ed's. Any clubs considering offers for Origi and Shaqiri.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - Divock Origi (S) The interest of Cercle Brugge has gone due to asking price. Fenerbahce are interested in a loan with an option to buy.
Xherdan Shaqiri (RW/AM) Fenerbahce will take him at the right price. Others in Italy have enquired but the price would need to drop.}


1.) 11 Jun 2021 07:50:00
Thank you ed002.

Ed mate how do you think Konate has done so far. Looks to me he has all the attributes to be a world class centre back for years to come.

Jimmy boy

{Ed001's Note - too in and out of the team to judge really.}


1.) 03 Mar 2022 07:06:50
I think he has all the attributes to be a great defender and has performed suitably when called upon. Looks a little wobbly on the ball though. I think Matip is preferred currently for this reason.


 

 

08 Feb 2022 12:28:14
Love to see Harvey Elliott get the number 7 next season.

Jimmy boy

1.) 08 Feb 2022 18:39:37
Steady on, he's already off the mark this season so hopefully he'll get to no 7 well before the end of the season ;-)


 

 

21 Jan 2022 14:03:47
Probably won't be a popular post but I wouldn't mind seeing Allison sold for say £70 mill if it helped fund a rebuild of our midfield/ forwards. I love Ali and he is top class but Kelliher has proved time and time again he is a more than capable replacement.

Jimmy boy

1.) 21 Jan 2022 14:13:21
I think we’d struggle to sell him for that fee mate. The big fees on goalkeepers seemed to peak and then drop at the time we bought him and Chelsea got Kepa.


2.) 21 Jan 2022 14:13:24
Feel the same about Ali but don't think this will be a terrible idea for a team that doesn't know where it's next dinner is coming from.
Between this option and more debt, it is sell Ali all day long for me (only theory if course - hope he stays for a very long time! )


3.) 21 Jan 2022 14:18:18
I'd rather sell kelleher, the boy is good but he is no Alisson, at least not yet.

Let the lad go and get the first team football he deserves and keep our goal scoring keeper until he wishes to return to Brazil.


4.) 21 Jan 2022 14:24:40
he's good cover but he's no where near Allison's level.


5.) 21 Jan 2022 15:01:38
Stop lad 😩.


6.) 21 Jan 2022 15:28:43
A midfielder and a forward needed that's all, along with a few clever youth signings like hopefully Carvalho. Evolution lads not revolution, why do people go on as if we need a whole new team. imagine willingly selling d best goalie in the country.

{Ed0666's Note - you think a midfielder and a forward will make everything ok mate? Will that make chamberlain, Origi, Keita, Bobby, Mane, Milner et al perform better?


7.) 21 Jan 2022 17:55:30
A midfielder and a forward gets us pretty close for me.

A case could be made (and argued against I’m sure! ) that we have the best player in the world at.

GK
RB
CB
LB
CDM
And of course Mo

Whether they are or they aren’t - would be debated amongst rival fans / pundits etc but you could make a case for each of them.

If you have 6 of arguably the best players in the world in their own position - we can’t be that far off.

A midfielder and a striker - I’m with you Jadon.


8.) 21 Jan 2022 16:01:55
Origi and Minamino replaced with Gordon and a new attacker. Elliott to take millies games and a new midfielder to replace ox and keita. Leaves Salah, Mane (who still gets 20 goals a season) Jota, Bobby, New attacker and Gordon in attack and Fab, thiago, New midfielder, Hendo, Jones and Elliott in d middle. That not enough for you Ed? hopefully Carvalho can be snapped up aswell who is pretty versatile.


9.) 21 Jan 2022 18:27:09
Not sure we should sell the best keeper in the world for an academy kid who has had some good games. Not to mention, we paid a fortune for him.


10.) 21 Jan 2022 18:35:25
Few talking like Thiago and hendo’s game time
Will get bigger! I don’t think so.


11.) 21 Jan 2022 19:08:16
Hendo starts every game when fit and he's played in all but 2 league games this year! not too shabby.


12.) 21 Jan 2022 19:23:46
I wouldn't take 100m for Allison. We were going to miss out on the champions league then this guy who had absolute heartache during the season comes up and scores a crucial header. I believe big time in kelleher but Allison is amazing.


13.) 21 Jan 2022 18:44:16
Sell a top class quality goalkeeper and fund him with a midfielder and striker. Get your head examined.


14.) 21 Jan 2022 19:58:25
Suppose Alisson doesn't want to leave?


15.) 21 Jan 2022 20:11:45
So we are back to to selling our best players? Nonsense. Get more investment end of.


16.) 22 Jan 2022 12:51:54
OP, don’t play yourself and don’t allow yourself to be fooled into being the prisoner of the moment. Kelleher is a fine young GK BUT nowhere near Ali and won’t be anytime soon. Have you also ever asked yourself that maybe one of the seasons QK is that good is cos he trains with IMO, literally the most fundamentally sound GL on the planet everyday? Chew on that for a minute.

We have a world class Don at GK ably supported by a very fine young deputy. Let’s just be happy with that without putting the young guy on a pedestal he clearly has not earned cos you are not helping him. Btw, Ali ain’t getting sold so the point is moot anyway.

Transfers that broke your heart?

Fowler to Leeds
Alonso to Madrid.

Jimmy boy

1.) 09 Dec 2021 09:57:17
Keegan to Hamburg.
Souness to Sampdoria.
Rush to Juventus.

{Ed0666's Note - Suarez to Barca


2.) 09 Dec 2021 10:10:45
Balotelli to Liverpool.


3.) 09 Dec 2021 10:23:33
El Hadji Diouf to Liverpool : (.


4.) 09 Dec 2021 10:49:19
Torres to Chelsea hurt me the most.

{Ed0666's Note - I wonder what an El Niño & Suarez partnership would have been like? Maybe they would have dovetailed seamlessly or maybe they would have got in each other way we’ll never know?


5.) 09 Dec 2021 11:08:53
Yeah Torres to Chelsea was an absolute kick to the balls. When Gerrard nearly signed for them as well I almost gave up on football!


6.) 09 Dec 2021 11:55:57
Just a discussion of the word “transfers” seems to break some fans hearts on here.

For me

Rush to Juve
Torres to Chelsea
Baloteli, Borini and Lambert being signed to replace Suarez.


7.) 09 Dec 2021 12:00:37
Aguero to city!

Torres and saurez being realistic!


8.) 09 Dec 2021 12:08:26
Souness and Rush off to Italy. Both hurt equally 😭.


9.) 09 Dec 2021 12:30:16
Hands down Fowler to Leeds. He's still my favourite player of the past players, with King Kenny being the best person!

Would have loved to have seen Torres and Suarez together.
Around the same a tad jealous of seeing Silva and Aguero join City.

And don't forget the CR7 shambles by Parry and co.


10.) 09 Dec 2021 12:42:41
Torres to Chelsea. Premier League team is always worse.


11.) 09 Dec 2021 12:50:16
Everybody hurts sometimes Barry.


12.) 09 Dec 2021 13:09:12
Torres to Chelsea for me, left me completely heartbroken.


13.) 09 Dec 2021 13:21:44
Mario Balotelli to where ever he disappeared off to.


14.) 09 Dec 2021 14:29:24
I remember Owen going to Madrid, I was in the airport and overheard some guys talking about it, it was the fact we got Nunez in a swap deal that was most disappointing!

Torres leaving was the other Biggie.

Probably the last one that bothered me was Lucas leaving just because he seemed to be such a great character.


15.) 09 Dec 2021 14:38:50
Salah on a free to.


16.) 09 Dec 2021 16:21:45
Suarez hurt not because it wasn’t expected but because of the manner it which it happened. The stunt at the World Cup was just not necessary at all and I very much felt at the time that all the progress and momentum we had built was gone in an instant, Brendan had begun to show signs of arrogance and incompetence and i didn’t trust him to rebuild the side with the money at all. That whole season made me sick to my stomach just because I could see it all unravelling from a mile away.

In terms of the emotional shock and pain i felt when a player left, it had to be Torres. Even though he had been playing poorly and looked past it, seeing him jump ship to Chelsea for silly money really stung. It felt like the end of days.


17.) 09 Dec 2021 16:57:36
I’m still waiting on Simao.


18.) 09 Dec 2021 17:49:45
For me nothing compared to alonso moving to RM. That one stung like a. word I can't use on this site so ll just use blueberry.

It stung like a motherblueberry. It started with blueberring Gareth Barry fiasco and eventually replaced by the constantly blueberried aquilani. Neither fit to wipe the orange off Alonso s boots.


19.) 09 Dec 2021 18:12:06
Suarez didn't bother me. Soon as he bit cellini I wanted him gone, it should have been long before that too. Have to admit I had the blinkers on at the time because of how good he was. Now I'm embarrassed he ever represented the club.


20.) 09 Dec 2021 18:41:18
Fowler to Leeds was almost tear inducing.
Alonso to Madrid .
Aldo to Sociedad.
Andy Carroll and Balotelli to Liverpool. Just knew they wouldn’t work out.
I’ll update the last ones if we ever sign Renato Sanches. 😳.


21.) 09 Dec 2021 18:58:45
Any of Roy's signings!


22.) 09 Dec 2021 19:08:43
Torres to Chelsea was the only time football broke my heart. I had to put a couple of shirts in a clothes skip and the walls were a right state from all the blue tack ripped off. All that chipped paint was a constant reminder every night that happiness is only temporary. Never catching feelings for a transient employee ever again!

ED666, I think it was the plan to bring Suarez in to play WITH Torres until he threw a strop and put in a transfer request at the last minute and well, you know the rest.

As for the transfer that broke my heart, it has to be Alonso to RM. For me, that was a complete disaster and should have never happened esp. after we got Alberto Aquilani in as his replacement.

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t begrudge Alonso leaving he went on to win tonnes with Madrid & Bayern. He wouldn’t have done that with us mate. Instead of the transfer that broke your heart What about the transfers you couldn’t wait to happen. For me it was Phil Babb & Paul Konchesky

Assuming you’re talking about players you couldn’t wait to leave Ed0666? Feel bad saying this about him because we’ve had players with way worse attitudes but the most frustrating player i’ve ever watched for Liverpool was Moreno.

We’ve had poor players, selfish players, lazy players but none match Moreno in terms of sheer incompetence. Watching him play football was like watching Johnny Depp’s character trying to function in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’. Was convinced he was in the grip of a biblical concoction of narcotics every time he stepped onto the field, always electing to do something outrageous and wild over keeping it simple. Played like a Labrador that had been dropped on its head at birth and then pumped full of methadone. Was always at least 5 yards out of position, took on shots from impossible angles approximately 50% of the time he was in the opposition half, would make a handful of stupid unnecessary challenges a game; my personal favourite being in the first leg against Dortmund when he ran the length of the pitch to snap the Dortmund right back, who had the ball at the corner flag. Made me want to pull my hair out.

He never seemed like a bad guy and the consensus seemed to be that he did really care and was just not good enough, hence why he seemed to stick around way longer than he ever should have done. Having said that, one has to wonder if he ever actually listened in training? Is it possible to passionately care about the club and still choose to self-sabotage the efforts of the team every weekend, seemingly never making the effort to take on board criticism and improve?

Glad he left with a Champions League to his name and happy for him now that he seems to be doing well with Villareal, but my god am i happy we have Tsimikas now.

Christian Poulsen terrible buy,
Milan Jovanavic

I need to stop now as it reminds me of an era I never ever wanted to remember again.

torres to chelsea sucked, but I kinda didn't mind because he downed tools for months before he left.

I am surprised to see Torres on Chelsea here so much. To get that much money for a player that hadn't really done well for us for a while seemed like good business to me. I think Carragher has publicly said so too.

Istvan Kozma and Nicky Tanner

Someone had an envelope for that pair signing for us i.

{Ed0666's Note - more than one envelope mate

Torres to Chelsea and Coutinho to Barcelona.


30.) 11 Dec 2021 12:14:39
Sterling to city
Fowler to Leeds
Owen to Madrid
Alonso to madrid.
Gerrard houlier buying el hadj diouf instead of signing anelka from loan. he was banging them in. Absolute joke that.

Hi all,

Someone might be able to help me. flying over for the FA cup game from Ireland. But before I book the flights is there a chance the fixture may be changed for tv.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You will know when the televised fixtures are announced.}

Jimmy boy, yes there is a chance it'll change for TV, in fact the draw Liverpool have is say its certain it will change.

I'm guessing Bissouma is plan A and Sanches is Plan B.

I think its maybe to do with him leaving us in 12 months. He's been outstanding for us apart for the last 3 months where he has looked completely burnt out. Id rather see him sold this summer than leave for free to Barcelona next year.

Gray is a smashing player. Everton got a real bargain there.

£800k a week absolutely disgusting that they can earn in one week what I earn in a year. Some people have all the luck.
