Hi Ed 002, hope you're well. Can I ask for a summary if you know of any interest from clubs to buy or loan Ben Davies, Rhys and Neco Williams, Nat Phillips, Sepp van den Berg, Taki Minamino, Oxlade-Chamberlain?

Thanks so much!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 17 Jun 2022 10:44:32
Actually JM it's RTFP ?.

2.) 17 Jun 2022 12:18:45
Haha Sláinte Barry.

Okay I see your recap now Ed002, thank you. You're a legend.
Anything on Ben Davies, Rhys or van den Berg?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 17 Jun 2022 12:41:22
Okay thanks a mil and best wishes.

4.) 17 Jun 2022 13:19:40
Fair play JM??.



31 Mar 2022 13:38:04
Hi Eds any idea if Liverpoolk or who are interested in Fabio Viera of Porto? Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have not expressed an interest but a couple of other sides have.} They are interested in a team mate as I have explained.

1.) 01 Apr 2022 08:08:50
Excuse me Ed002 I have looked but cannot seem to find, which team mate is it we are interested in? Otavio or Vitinha?

{Ed002's Note - Vitinha, but there may be residual interet in Otavio.}

2.) 01 Apr 2022 15:11:07
I really like Otavio. Looked good against us. Vitinha has been average whenever i've seen him play for Wolves or Porto but he's only young so hard to judge him on a handful of games many of which he came on as a sub.

Our scouts don't often let us down regardless 🤷🏻‍♂️.

3.) 01 Apr 2022 20:00:57
Thank you Ed002.

4.) 01 Apr 2022 23:03:16
I’d be happy with Vitinha replacing ox/ Naby. Looks a good player and very young. Played out of position and in a horrible system under Nuno. Big step up from Portuguese league though.

5.) 03 Apr 2022 13:09:50
Diaz hasn’t done badly now, has he Steve? ;-)



23 Feb 2022 10:27:51
Hi Eds hope you're all well. I heard from a Celtic mate that Liverpool are interested in young Ben Doak. Any clue if it's true? Thanks a mil as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, I really don't know but he would not be able to move until he is 18.}

1.) 23 Feb 2022 12:18:15
Ah right okay, thanks Ed002.



03 Feb 2022 18:36:07
Eds any idea how Chelsea were able to sign Mason Burstow and loan him back to Charlton on Tuesday but Liverpool couldn't sign and loan back Carvalho? What's the difference there? Confusing. Much thanks as always!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea spotted the player whilst scouting someone else and spoke to Charlton. Agrred a fee and filled in the paperwork. Liverpool used a third party (nothing wrong with that), but looked for a cheap late deal. It did not work out. Really they are unrelated.}

1.) 03 Feb 2022 23:35:14
That’s very interesting eds2. Can you explain why we used a 3ed party and what was the fee we tried to buy him for. You really are the oracle mate. And thank for any info mate👌🏻.

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth opening these things up.}

2.) 04 Feb 2022 08:12:00
Ed was this just late to announce? I'm assume all the papers where filled in and everything approved before the dead line day they just announced it 2 days later?

{Ed002's Note - He is a youngster that most people would never have heard of - they signed a couple of others as well.}

3.) 04 Feb 2022 11:10:09
Ed's would you say CFC's youth dev system is better than ours at present? And if so is that down purely down to financial muscle?

{Ed002's Note - A lot better and it is down to policy over a long period of time.}

4.) 04 Feb 2022 16:13:34
Spaceman-Chelsea’s youth system is the best by far in England and has been for sometime, all the England youth teams are full of their lads. Look at Liverpool and 2 of our most successful sales of recent times in Solanke and Brewster have both come through Chelsea ranks before joining us late in their development.
All across the Premier league and Europe’s top leagues they have players on loan (Gallagher, Broja, Gilmour) or they have sold (Lamptey, Livramento, Abraham, Tomori, Guehi) as they couldn’t break into the team on top of the numerous players that are either in the side or on the periphery (Mount, Hudson-Odoi, James, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek) . Whether it’s the actual structure of their youth set up or their scouting they’re certainly doing something right.

5.) 04 Feb 2022 16:47:38
Look into the full story behind how Chelsea got to this position with their academy. It doesn’t show them in a good light.

6.) 04 Feb 2022 17:25:26
How so Mark?

7.) 04 Feb 2022 17:36:24
They broke every rule going.

8.) 04 Feb 2022 18:19:31
All of a sudden the cats got someone’s tongue on this Mark. Chelsea not quite as sparkly as we are consistently told on here heh.

9.) 04 Feb 2022 19:22:20
Mark- is it any different to most top clubs cherry picking players from across the globe?

10.) 04 Feb 2022 22:52:07
Could you elaborate on that instead of vaguely putting out that statement, Mark?

Chelsea did obviously get the transfer ban due to breaking rules with regards to youth recruitment, but I doubt most of the best players Cobham has helped form were at the core of that mess. Doubt there were any breaches in forming the likes of Mount, James, Gilmour, Abraham, Broja, Gallagher, Callum, Guehi, Livramento, Lamptey, Colwill, Musiala, Tomori.

Think Christensen's case was involved, as well as Bertrand Traore. So I'll give you those.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why the comment was posted. It seems neither of you understand the situation.}

11.) 05 Feb 2022 10:11:37
That is an incredible production line to be fair! Mount, James, Gallagher, Lamptey and Gilmour appear to have very bright futures. Mount has a pretty good present too!

12.) 05 Feb 2022 19:22:24
Very true, Ed. Indeed I don't know what the situation exactly was, and what Chelsea have done wrong with regards to youth recruitment. Which is why I would've liked for Mark to elaborate on his comment.



24 Jan 2022 22:36:17
Ed002 mate can you see Fabio Carvalho to Liverpool happening despite the Fulham issues or what do you expect for him? Much appreciated as always. Respect.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time and there have already been approaches about him joining another club as a Free Agent in the summer by agreeing a Pre Contract now.}

1.) 24 Jan 2022 22:53:36
Oh dangitt. Who's that if you please?

2.) 25 Jan 2022 09:03:53
Must be a foreign club Ed? Can you see his preference being to stay in the Premier League and if so who are the teams interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - Fabio Carvalho (AM) will be a Free Agent in the summer and has his agents talking to the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid - all of which would be a big step up from Fulham, but all of which have a declared interest. Other clubs such as Bayer Leverkusen, Liverpool, West Ham, Leeds, Southampton and Wolves have sent scouts to watch him but it has gone no further and Fulham would be very reluctant to deal with Liverpool. The German and Spanish sides are free to negotiate a transfer as a Free Agent for the summer already. The English sides cannot do that until May. Fulham could opt to try to sell this month to ensure that they do not lose out financially. Chelsea would have a significant advantage if he were to be sold in January, but it seems very unlikely.}

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.

Yes yes please a new contract for Bobby. We've replaced Sadio and can replace Mo, but Bobby's smile is irreplaceable! Would be perfect backup to Nunez for another 2-3 seasons.

Ah that's what I thought, thanks Ed001. It's a pity for Taki and us, especially with Bobby out at the same time. Hope he's fit to start the EFL Cup game at least. Will be interesting to see if Kaide Gordon gets a chance in that one, too.

Do we know when Minamino will be available again? He looked very sharp in preseason either on the left or in the middle interchanging with Sadio. Would love to see him get a start. I'd keep Jones in midfield and give him a chance, haven't seen him being effective as a LF for a long time.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool aren't very good at giving out information like this, but last I heard was he was not expected back for the UCL game. He is being rated as having a slim chance of being back for the weekend, but that is more through a lack of information to those that track injuries.}

I hear ya, Zed. But I bet I really hate the international windows more. I'm Irish and trying to support and maintain enthusiasm for a team with so many and varied problems is exhausting, believe me. It also makes me realize how spoiled we are as Liverpool fans. Anyone complaining about the quality or depth of this Liverpool squad can only be seeking perfection (or nitpicking) . We have an excellent team that plays beautiful fast football, so let's go get behind them and cheer them on to try and win every game. We've got 4 competitions to look forward to with a grand chance of seeing some silverware, which is really what football is all about and most teams in the world dream of (except City and the League Cup) . At the elite level it is easy to lose sight of the fairer side of football and take for granted the amazing world-class players that we currently have at the club. The standard set by Klopp and the staff and squad is extremely high and we can only strive to break through that glass ceiling to an absolutely phenomenal level and win the biggest trophies in world football. I'm super excited for the upcoming games and season and look forward to every nail-biting moment Liverpool will gloriously throw at us, as they usually do. I mean, at least we're not Arsenal fans, thank dog! lol.
