Hi Ed002 hope you're well. Do you know which clubs are interested in taking Rhys Williams on loan?
Much Thanks.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I am only aware of a tentative approach of Preston but there will be no shortage of interest.}

1.) 25 Jul 2021 12:21:24
Reckon anything from the Premier League Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I doubt it. The risk would be he would not get game time.}

2.) 25 Jul 2021 12:38:53
Okay thanks Ed002. Yeah I wouldn't expect a Premier League side to see a loaned CB as their starting solution.

3.) 25 Jul 2021 13:24:09
Even a good loan to the championship would be great for the kid, he had my nerves gone at times last season but we shouldn't forget the part he played in our great end to the campaign.

4.) 25 Jul 2021 15:13:59
He was every bit as good as Phillips towards the end of season.

5.) 25 Jul 2021 17:42:34
He really wasn’t every bit as good as Phillips, not a slight to the lad but he often looked out of his depth.

6.) 25 Jul 2021 18:59:23
Agree with Jerry on this. Loan to league one for game time might be good for him.

7.) 25 Jul 2021 19:08:44
Looks a bit too slow to play in a team with a high line, or maybe hasn't got the experience to read the game quick enough. And still a bit lightweight to play in a team with a low line. A bit tricky to place. Gym for a year maybe? Bulk up a little, get a pair of Shaq-calves and some pecs?

8.) 25 Jul 2021 19:16:58
Gave a good account of himself and deserves a good loan in the championship, he lacks pace, but if he learns to use his body (he’s a big lad) and timing he could be a decent defender.

9.) 25 Jul 2021 19:17:31
Perhaps a season of pub football in scotland w Stevie G?

10.) 25 Jul 2021 19:54:55
League one loan for game time is what he needs.

11.) 25 Jul 2021 23:13:06
He needs championship football regular game time, there will be interest.

12.) 26 Jul 2021 12:12:26
You want him to get regular football be that championship or league 1. The worst case would be loaning to sit on the bench in the championship.

13.) 26 Jul 2021 12:23:21
I’d like to see him loaned to France or Germany. Then next season a championship team expected to compete for promotion. Would r rule out a third loan season if that Championship side promotes.
You’re then looking at Konate partner once VVD nears his retirement.



06 Apr 2021 13:19:13
Hi Eds, any truth in Liverpool having an interest in signing Koopmeiners? Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from elsewhere but I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool - and would he be a starter ahead of Fabinho?

1.) 06 Apr 2021 15:35:27
No chance, and yeah not a suitable Gini replacement either.
Thanks Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - He is a DM player so would not be a replacement for Wijnaldum.}

2.) 06 Apr 2021 23:12:50
Sander berge could be of interest .

3.) 08 Apr 2021 20:54:28
Heard that City were interested in Berge. They’d literally blow us out contention. Money talks.

4.) 09 Apr 2021 11:01:09
Was Thiago not the replacement for Gini? That was my understanding.

5.) 09 Apr 2021 11:21:56
Always thought he was a DM that could also play CB but this season he has played mainly at CM and chipped in with 15 goals no less.



19 Mar 2021 10:01:47
Reading reports Liverpool are interested in Bastoni of Inter. Any truth Eds?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware - he would be expensive which would be a problem but he would be the replacement for Gomez that Klopp desires if the money could be found.}

1.) 19 Mar 2021 16:31:06
Think Bastoni is a left pegged so would want to play on VVd’s side.

Skriniar would be my choice from inter, not that it’s going to happen mind.

2.) 19 Mar 2021 22:20:47
Ed002 - seen Gomez being replaced a few times, is it more likely Gomez is moved on than Matip? Surely Matip would make sense to move before Gomez who is homegrown, younger and still room to improve.

{Ed002's Note - Matip is not a starter - Gomez is and would be the one to lose out if Liverpool could get what Klopp wants - but as zi have explained that will be difficult.}

3.) 21 Mar 2021 16:23:52
what is the reason for Klopp wanting to get a starter, does he just not see Gomez as being good enough?

surely we need to be addressing the HG issue and dropping Gomez for an international player.

4.) 21 Mar 2021 15:54:27
On the contrary Ed002, Matip has almost always started ahead of Gomez whenever fit. You can look at their availability over the years, and you would see that FYI. Peace.

{Ed002's Note - Fine then, nobody will miss Gomez going. I was wrongly under the impression that Klopp had settled on him as a starter. Finding a buyer will be difficult then.}

5.) 23 Mar 2021 00:22:12
I find it hard to believe that Klopp saw Matip as being ahead of Gomez, before their injuries.



19 Oct 2020 09:18:12
Ed002 you think interest could now develop in a free agent CB like Ezequiel Garay?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool cannot sign him.}

1.) 19 Oct 2020 09:52:22
Even if we could sign Garay, we'd be replacing a player out with a cruciate ligament injury with one recovering from a cruciate ligament injury.

When someone good is on a free, do people not think to check why?

2.) 19 Oct 2020 10:40:35
Just for clarification, do you mean that we can't sign Garay specifically, or can we not sign any of the current free agents at all?

{Ed002's Note - Can't sign any free agents.}

3.) 19 Oct 2020 10:00:01
10 years ago he’d have been ok. The bloke is 34 and not really going to cope well in the PL at his age.

4.) 19 Oct 2020 12:42:29
OK Ed. 02, thanks for replying.

5.) 19 Oct 2020 12:59:55
Yeah just scraping the barrel for short-term solutions really. Of course Fabinho and the youngsters will have to do it for now. So fingers crossed the Thiago news is good and Matip stays fit for once. Could maybe sign Rüdiger on loan in January.



10 Sep 2020 19:34:08
Ed002 I wonder is there still a possibility of Liverpool moving for Filip Stevanovic? You said there's an offer on the table for him from another club but no transfer can go through until he turns 18 on September 25th? So is it conceivable that Liverpool could bid for him closer to then (with money they get for Wilson maybe) and we won't actually miss out on this terrific signing you've lauded?
Thanks a million as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I think it would be a great move and a specific scout has been advocating him for a couple of years - but I suspect it is now unlikely.}

1.) 10 Sep 2020 20:19:39
Sad face emoji.
Having him and Elliot as Mane and Salah's deputies and eventual successors does seem the perfect formula for our wide-forward positions. You think it's unlikely because you expect Partizan to keep him and auction him for big big money next year, is it?

{Ed002's Note - No, because he will not be heading to Liverpool right now.}

2.) 10 Sep 2020 20:34:54
Maybe Musialowski or Balagizi are earmarked for that role with Elliott. We already have a lot of fantastic kids at the club. Stefanavic does look the real deal though.

3.) 10 Sep 2020 20:34:22
ed002 I thought he had signed for Utd weeks ago. If he has not I have not seen him play but would take your word that his a very good prospect but with us not seeming to sell to may players I don't think we will be signing anybody let alone 17 year olds for £10m+. I do think there will be few more players move around before the close of the window though I just think its a game of nerves teams holding out for there prices to be met.

4.) 10 Sep 2020 20:37:02
Ah ok. There it is in black and white. Damn.
I guess I'll just pour myself another drink instead. Cheers Ed002!

5.) 10 Sep 2020 22:30:04
I thought this guy had an agreement with manU?

6.) 11 Sep 2020 10:34:57
I think Serbian wonderkids (Markovic) probably make us very anxious to part with our money now lol.

17 Jun 2021 01:13:49
Wow mate I just read your player-profile on Harvey Scott Elliott now. It really reads like a glowing and exciting report. Personally, I want him in the squad next season and I guess take Shaqiri's place and be brilliant! So, I got to ask! How much potential do you really see him having? I think that if he gets minutes he'll get goal contributions.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I think he has potential to be a top class player, it is all up to him. If he continues to work as hard as he did with Rovers, he will deserve a place somewhere in the team. Not so sure why he would replace Shaq though? Elliott is a front 3 player, Shaq was playing in midfield. We still need midfield players, Elliott is probably more of a replacement for Taki or Origi if he has to replace someone, rather than just being an addition to strengthen.}

1.) 17 Jun 2021 06:33:45
I’d saw a Grealish-type player in Elliott in the past, someone able to play a number of roles, including an advanced midfielder.
How is he getting on physically Ed001?
My main reservation is his size, he was fairly diminutive (though not frail) and there are some monsters in the PL these days. I wouldn’t want to throw him in too early but, at the same time, the Championship can be physical also so perhaps he can play a role in our squad?

{Ed001's Note - Grealish-type? I hope not.

He is fine physically, but the only way he will learn to battle against stronger opponents is to face them.}

2.) 17 Jun 2021 09:30:54
Ed01, it would be interesting to get your thoughts on the reasons why you think Elliot is more of a front 3 player. I ask cos our front three basically (not totally due to Bobbie) have some pace to them overall. Therefore, how would Elliot be suitable to this setup cos to me, he prefers to have the ball to feet and orchestrate and is not that pacey. Or will it just be a case of him adding something diff. to the the front 3? Cheers, man.

{Ed001's Note - he is as quick as Bobby. He has pace, he was fond of drifting past players and then accelerating away from them last season before playing a ball in. Playing on the left he probably doesn't cut in enough for the way we play, but he is certainly quick enough.}

3.) 17 Jun 2021 10:17:12
Yeah good point, I guess I was being a bit lazy with my comparison. So you'd be happy going into the season with front 3 options Salah, Elliot, Mane, Jota, Firmino +1?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

4.) 17 Jun 2021 11:52:14
Thanks, Ed01 for the response. Really interesting to see how Elliot does if he is given time with the first team. Not sure he needs a loan anymore. He needs to get his hands (or legs) dirty at the highest level and the PL is the best place to do so.

5.) 17 Jun 2021 12:36:35
The better parts of Grealish’s game lol.
I watched the two England warm-up matches.
You can see Klopp’s influence on Henderson, one / two touches and bang, the ball is gone.
Grealish is a minimum of three, mostly four or more touches, no wonder he attracts fouls.
He can play though but if Elliott listens to Klopp he could be a real un.



17 Jun 2021 01:13:49

Hi Eds and fellow Reds. I have a question for any Liverpudlians here about Anfield's redevelopment. I was admiring the pics of how nice the finished stadium will look and shared them with some friends who immediately shot back about the shame of Liverpool FC "forcing people out of their homes and intentionally letting the area around the ground fall into total disrepair to push down property prices. "

I'm a lifelong Red but a Dubliner, so I would love to get a sense of the real facts and feelings behind the whole thing from some locals. I know mistakes were made but have amends been made and how do people feel about the process overall? Thanks all YNWA and bring on Norwich! :)

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Your friends are correct - there was some degree of social cleansing of the Anfield area with Liverpool buying property and leaving it empty for years and persuading the Council to use Compulsory Purchase Orders to purchase the rest. After lying to the Council about their consulation with the locals about the plans for Anfield there was a delay and the two phased approach decided. In February 2020 Liverpool took out a mortgage on all assets (the Freehold and leasehold of Anfield and about 90 properties (some of which were obtained CPO) with the charge held by Natwest.}

1.) 16 Jun 2021 11:32:03
Hmm, okay. So did they get above market value or have they been compensated? Will the Melwood housing project plus the development around the stadium really be beneficial? Overall in the long-run how do the local people of Liverpool feel about it?

2.) 16 Jun 2021 11:38:54
As far as i’m concerned the club owe the locals and owe them badly. I seemed to think it was Hicks and Gillette who bought up all the property around the ground but it seems like i’m wrong. If i remember rightly a lot of it was round the back of the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand as the car park backed up right to the walls of the houses at the back. I could never understand why so many of them were empty and it seemed like such a shame, but as Ed has described it was the club that forced the people out. The boss little chippy right outside the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand closed a few years ago and again that seemed very strange. Have the locals taken up issue with the club or the council about any of this Ed002, because it very much seems to be, as you put it, ‘social cleansing’?

{Ed002's Note - They last took issue as far as I know afer the the club lied about the consultation process.}

3.) 16 Jun 2021 12:50:58
The demand for old inner city housing, like around the Anfield area, has been falling for over 40 years and many similar parts of Britain show this pattern of increased disrepair, empty properties, private landlords moving in, and increased crime.
LFC have contributed to this issue locally, they’ve been buying up empty houses at rock bottom prices and leaving them empty for years.
But this was only part of a much larger problem.
The clearance of some old housing stock, redevelopment of new housing and the stadium may help to bring in new investment to the area but it’s a complex and long term issue.
Football brings in a lot of money to the city but its costs are largely felt by residents living around the two stadiums.

4.) 16 Jun 2021 13:11:27
There were/ are (not sure anymore) a lot of empty house that Liverpool fc didn’t own in that area. The council did a project were you could buy a house for £1 but you had to renovate it yourself and not sell again within a certain time period. Am sure someone will correct me if am wrong. Unfortunately Compulsory Purchase Orders do happen just look at the HS2!

5.) 16 Jun 2021 13:57:38
Was the same on Manchester and some of the far North areas of England I believe Longthing.

6.) 17 Jun 2021 07:18:01
Think that was in the Kensington area not Anfieid Longthing.



14 Jan 2021 16:14:56
Adrian left out of training, Ed would it free up a Non-HG slot if he left? Aware of any interest? Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Obviously if non-HG players leaves it frees up a slot.}

1.) 14 Jan 2021 18:03:25
Are/ were players brought up in Irish football considered home grown or was there any difference in the criteria for them to be considered homegrown compared to others from Europe? If so has this changed with Brexit?

Apologies I know there has been a lot on this topic but I had not seen anything on this particular point, probably as there was no reason to bring it up but thought I'd ask!

{Ed002's Note - Home Grown relates to the FA only. So for Liverpool players having played for English and Welsh sides for 3 years between the ages of 16 and 21 regardless of where they are born. So Nathan Ake is HG in England and Wales, but not in the Netherlands where he was born. He counts as club developed for Chelsea.}



27 Sep 2020 20:11:34
I see Hoever's on the bench for Wolves tonight, for only the second time. Seems a straight-up 1st/ 2nd with him and Semedo. Good for him! Good luck to the lad. Remind me, is there a buy-back clause in that deal?

Jurgen Meister

1.) 27 Sep 2020 22:17:54
And he made his Premier League debut! :)
(in a 0-4 defeat) . Onward and upward! LOL.

Thank you Ed002 for confirming this as utter bs.
But whether any of us may love or hate a completely spurious transfer rumour, let's at least try to write them in a proper sentence, eh?

This one is like as if someone just google translated a nonsense headline from a rubbish Italian football website. Completely missing the actual fact that Keita is one of only five players to clock over 150 minutes on the pitch from the four preseason friendlies so far, along with Trent, Milner, Sadio and Mo. Again, this is not an accident.

The Liverpool coaching staff are preparing the players that they see as most ready to start the opening games of the season. Nothing else matters right now and whether we sign one, two or zero new players between now and September 1st, our squad is still capable of beating any other team on their day. YNWA.

I think Ed002 meant It won’t be van Dijk, Thiago or Alison, because they're already at the club. Toying with you a little. ;)

Potentially the sales of Grabara, Millar, Ojo, Grujic, Wilson, Shaqiri, Origi, Phillips and Awoniyi could add up to 70-80 million

I could imagine Insigne myself as he's got 1 year of his contract remaining and could offer good value similar to the Thiago deal. He would also be 'high profile' lol.

You must be thinking of somebody else @Ed077 mate. He started 39 games altogether last season and got 10 goals and 10 assists.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed077's Note - I don't watch Napoli too much. Must have been on those few games he didn't play much or play well.

Keeping Davies as LCB cover will allow us to sell Phillips and loan Rhys. It's interesting that Ed001 and 002 seem to disagree on this point. The lad was unlucky with the injury, so Liverpool did use youngsters. Hope he can stay fit and get some game time so we can finally see what he can offer.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool used the likes of Henderson and Fabinho at CB. Ben Davies did not play a single game.}

Hahahaha come on. "I don't really read too much out of pre season friendlies as it is just a step by step process for match sharpness and fitnes. However. " Massive load of waffle full of broad sweeping statements, assessments and assumptions. Giz a break mate, we haven't even got started yet.

Yeah Keita has been grand so far. I mean come on, the OP doesn't even know what team we were playing but can analyze a player? Which game are you even on about? Keita played against Stuttgart and Mainz. Against Mainz in particular he carried the ball, broke the lines and provided some penetration, which is his job. I agree Tsimikas did well, looking forward to the next one. (still not Salzburg)

Why thank you very much, Ed025 mate. You're too kind. :)
I forgot Koumetio of course who's said himself he's learning loads and I've a good feeling Konate can be his Big Bro.
Layton Stewart's injury is tragic, James Norris is another promising left-back. We've some more high-caliber 16-17 year olds like Woltman, Mabaya, Bajcetic and of course Bobby Clark on his way in. But obviously it's very difficult to know how far young players will develop. I mean, we thought Ojo would be da bomb when we signed him for a cool two million back in 1976 while he was still nappies. ;)

Yeah the U23s squad are all very young atm, but there's definitely some promising talent in the academy. You just have to look at the youngsters selected to go to the Austria camp with the senior squad, they were picked for a reason. Probably not ready for senior football this coming season, but GK: Pitaluga (18), H. Davies (17), DEF: Bradley (18), Beck (18), MID: Clarkson (19), Cain (19), Morton (18), FWD: Musialowski (17), Gordon (16) are the next to come through. Then there's a few stepping up from the U18s like Balagizi, Fraeundorf, Cannonier etc. But none ready for the senior squad. Hopefully Glatzel and the others will have a good season on loan. He's playing in a friendly vs Sunderland as I write this.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed025's Note - great knowledge there JM, kudos mate..
