Morning, looking at players to come in who i think could do a job, Bissouma, guy is a beast, Mendy and Barnes from Leicester, Podence from Wolves, think he has more potential for us than Traore, Saka from Arsenal, McGinn and Grealish are getting the plaudits at Villa but Luiz is no slouch in the midddle to, have we looked at any of these, sometimes trying to see these guys with better players around them is better than having a big name from another country, we don't need another Keita, players who know the league and maybe just need a higher level of player around them to reach their potential.


{Ed025's Note - all them you mention are pie in the sky lancaster, there is very little money in the pot at liverpool mate and unless 1 or 2 big names leave there wont be much coming in im afraid..

1.) 30 Dec 2020 11:28:44
With Salah seemingly pushing, was thinking of the money he would generate mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats a big IF at the moment lancaster, the money liverpool would want would be too much for any club in this financial climate mate..

2.) 30 Dec 2020 11:48:37
Thanks Ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..



01 Jul 2019 15:35:48
Heard a rumour Mbappe interest is there but the stumbling block is wages, Liverpool have asked Nike to pay towards this as part of the nearing kit deal.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 15:55:14
Find that very hard to believe Lancaster but boss rumour! Love ones like that ????????.

{Ed002's Note - It is utter nonsense. It should never have been posted.}

2.) 01 Jul 2019 16:18:11
I know Ed002 but it cheered me up on a miserable Monday.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 17:01:01
May as well link us to Messi or Ronaldo as well. Utter nonsense. I seem to remember LancasterRed linking us to Eriksen a couple of weeks back. Must be fun plucking random names out of thin air.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 18:32:02
If you throw enough darts blindfolded one will hit the board.

5.) 01 Jul 2019 16:59:16
Ah Ed mate. Let them through, while it is utter nonsense there's no harm to it.

{Ed002's Note - It clutters up the transfer page with rubbish and stops any relevant posts.}

6.) 01 Jul 2019 18:28:59
Hi Ed002

Utter nonsense is most definitely the best description in terms of the Mbappe rumour, it started with the LeBron James / Mbappe friends and Nike connection, Liverpool potential sponsorship deal with Nike and the conspiracy theorists had it all figured out, but it was a nice dream though, why did you have to ruin it so quickly? Ha Ha.

7.) 01 Jul 2019 22:36:21
I herd hansen sings about mbappe all the time.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 08:03:29
Put up the Eriksen rumour on here before anyone then boom a few days later it starts gathering speed, thought this was a rumours page? I could read a paper and post half the stuff up but never put an article up that's been in a rag, original rumours which have legs, it will come out then you can all jump off your little high horses, Morning.

9.) 02 Jul 2019 09:21:38
Don't forget he took a picture with Sturridge and he follows Stevie G on Instagram. he's practically a Liverpool player already.

10.) 02 Jul 2019 14:19:41
Mbappe is not needed. And that tells you everything about our front three.

11.) 02 Jul 2019 16:36:27
I thought the two hundred million transfer fee would be more of a stumbling block.

12.) 03 Jul 2019 15:56:59
Theres me thinking its a rumour page too!



04 Jun 2019 12:12:47
Heard from the close friend of a former player that feelers have been put out to the agents of Eriksen to see if there's any chance/ interest in a move to us.


1.) 04 Jun 2019 12:21:26
Christian Eriksen? Haha, good one. I heard from my dog's best friend's grandmother that Sven-Göran Eriksson is being felt up to see if he has any interest in working at the club shop.

2.) 04 Jun 2019 12:46:14
Fair enough, got told from the same person, Coutinho and Fekir are of a solid interest too.

3.) 04 Jun 2019 12:56:26
Wish it were true. Eriksen would fit in really well with this Liverpool team.

4.) 04 Jun 2019 13:32:56
Eriksen is a fair weather footballer in my eyes.

{Ed001's Note - agreed. Only plays when given time and space.}

5.) 04 Jun 2019 14:21:55
Eriksen is not good enough. Has talent yes, but would never be able to do all the things Klopp asks midfielders to do. And maybe it's me, but he looks so freaking slow.

6.) 04 Jun 2019 15:23:36
No your right he has gotten slow. I really noticed it this season.

7.) 04 Jun 2019 15:42:21
Eriksen ain't good enough and snubbed us years ago when we showed interest.

8.) 04 Jun 2019 15:41:31
Have you heard anything from the agents or the like of these 3 Eds? can't say where its came from but would be interested to hear if you have an insight.

{Ed001's Note - nope.}



23 Oct 2017 12:19:07
Hallo Eds
Quick question, is there going to be real effort made NOW to look for players in January? I know its a bad month to do business sometimes.


{Ed001's Note - the club never stops looking for players to buy in the next window or two. The problem is that they never seem to find them!}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 14:47:22
I can't see much business been done in Jan, so I'm personally looking to the summer. Should we get another player or two in Jan then that's a boost but I'm not getting my hopes up for them to come crashing down Jan 31st when we've signed nobody.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 23:12:06
We can't not sign players in Jan if we don't then for me Klopp is finished.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 03:24:00
Its only worth signing players if they are going to improve us. Its easy to say the current ones aren't good enough but no point is flushing money down the toilet simply to announce a transfer. Point is we have to find player (s) who are better than our current ones who are also available and wish to come to us - which is why Jan is always tricky.
Personally Id like to see money spent on overhauling the scouting department.

I'm in no way saying he is on his level, or near it at a consistent level (yet) but Philips reminds me of a young Tony Adams, i just hope we aren't made to cash in on him just to get some spends, as he should be part of our defense for a while yet, don't see why we would make Kabaks signing permanent when money is always tight for us.


1.) 14 May 2021 13:12:28
What i will say is that in my opinion Philips has more ability than Carragher ever had. Although Philips did stick that OG away Carragher esq 😆😆. let's hope he doesn't break THAT record.

2.) 14 May 2021 13:12:48
Lancaster agree mate I wouldn’t spend 20 mill on Kabak over Phillips and that’s nothing against how Kabak has done it’s more to do with how Phillips has. Klopp is supposedly a big fan of Konate so if he comes in it’s a case of whether Phillips is happy to go back to 4th or 5th choice because that’s where I think he will be and I honestly believe Klopp picks a fully fit Vvd, Gomez and Matip ahead of him.

3.) 14 May 2021 14:01:44
Cmon, let’s have some perspective here.
We’re talking about a replacement CB.
What’s the barometer to measure against - my view is it should be Van Dijk, and it’s both painful and nervous watching Phillips compared to the main man?
Even at 3-1 up I was a nervous wreck last night and I don’t want to permanently go back to that situation.
When VVD and Gomez / Matip were together I got that security that we weren’t getting beaten.
That’s the bar, for me.
I’ve got no problem if Phillips is retained but let’s not lionise the player quite yet?
He’s behind VVD, Gomez, a fit Matip, and a first team CB signing.

4.) 14 May 2021 14:14:57
Season would have been completely different imo if Klopp has trusted Phillips earlier.
I would 100% keep him over spending money on Kabak. As well as being a great 3/ 4th choice, he would be an excellent option to come off the bench in the last 10 mins against teams who are pumping the ball in the box and we are under pressure.

5.) 14 May 2021 15:08:35
If someone had told you at the start of the season our number 1 defender Wouldn’t be VVD, gomez or matip it would be Phillips. It’s not his fault the others got injured but by god he has stepped up to the plate and given everything. Well done lad I hope you stay with us.

{Ed014's Note - agree mate he’s done himself proud

6.) 14 May 2021 15:16:40
I feel like Phillips knows his limitations much better than Kabak and is also more mature. In order for Kabak to improve he would have to get games, which he won’t next season. He is very raw as it stands and i don’t see the need to spend £18 million on a 4th choice centre back. There is also the home grown quota to consider.

7.) 14 May 2021 15:20:12
Phillips is an absolute warrior.

Id love nothing more than to see him get into the England squad for the euros.

Do Tyrone Mings, Conor Coady or Michael Keane really deserve to be in ahead of him?

8.) 14 May 2021 15:40:26
Juicer, are you thinking about Williams? Never get nervous with Philips at the back, its good to know that your CB will have no worries about putting himself in front of any ball put into the box, it would be very interesting to see him alongside VVD or Gomez, even a back 3 with them 2 would be a solid option, i certainly think he offers more than Mings at Villa who is massively over rated whereas Philips is massively under rated imo.

9.) 14 May 2021 16:13:48
He has done himself proud, I agree with that.
But that was from an expectation of zero.
We finally won the league after 30 years of trying (and so many old-style, slow CBs) with a progressive, high line / high risk style of football with fast, ball-playing central defenders that no one could live with and now everyone wants to go back?
I can’t believe it, only in England surely?
The Germans used to put their best players at the back and I have absolutely loved watching the previous two seasons prior to this.
Even Shankly and Paisley ditched the old style CBs in 1973.



06 May 2021 09:37:49
It seems the whole country wants to punish the "big" 6 for their attempts to get the ESL going, no point docking points, as this punishes players and managers who wanted no part of it, can't play behind closed doors as this punishes the fans, who also wanted no part of it, the best way for me is too play 5 matches with fans getting in for free, hit in the pocket, still don't have any time for pundits and ex players mouthing off, as they aren't interested in introducing caps, still wanting to fleece the fans, games gone from the fans and it won't ever come back.


1.) 06 May 2021 16:33:41
The game went away from the fans a couple of decades ago. No point crying over it now, since the game has grown and truly gone global. It's just the local fans who don't have much of a say anymore.

I really do think that this process will continue. One of the proposals will get accepted with fan representatives nodding their heads to it at some point. So then what's the point of punishing people now, when most see the inevitability of all this, in the near future?

2.) 06 May 2021 16:54:03
The game is only gone from the fans when the fans stop fighting for it. You may have given up on it, I haven't.

3.) 06 May 2021 18:02:56
As always, you assume too much. I'm not in your shoes, Einstein. I gave up on absolutely nothing, it's actually been fantastic for me. I get to see every single game now, having always lived outside of the UK. It's brought me so much closer to the team too. I recognize the rights of the local fans, of course and support them. Every team should have strong roots and a base to operate out from. But no team is an island, and a global presence and support does nothing but add talent and money to the team's coffers. Organic growth.

4.) 06 May 2021 19:14:44
Why are on earth are you talking to me about global and local fans? Where did I ever make that distinction?
You said 'The game went away from the fans a couple of decades ago. ', that seems pretty clear to me.

5.) 07 May 2021 11:49:25
The game has gone from the fans, the money is ridiculous in the game, the players and their agents don't want capping to come in, TV stations with their god awful pundits who can barely talk, like Morrison, Cole, Smith, Jenas and Keown are making subscriptions go up and up, i don't want to listen to that rubbish, but i have to if i want to see my team or the rest of the league, VAR has taken the Passion from the game, players don't celebrate because they are worried about some jerk in a caravan getting his ruler out and jacking off over trying to get the perfect line, football will always evolve, it has too but the people in that bubble want to keep it that, a bubble for the rich to get richer, its the same in all walks of life, accepting it is the hardest part, i have accepted that the games been ruined and null of all passion, the biggest and probably only hope is the return of fans in the stadium reignites the feeling.

6.) 07 May 2021 14:49:05
A couple of decades ago, there were not the international broadcasting deals we have today. Only high profile games were being seen outside of the UK (and just up to Europe) . Therefore fans of the English game were mostly concentrated in the UK. Your local fans. Then digital progress came along, with international broadcasting deals and rights and the English game spread far beyond the UK and developed a global international following. The global fans. Today the global fans far outnumber the local fans. It's my view that it is the local fans who want a say in how their club is run, whereas I don't believe the fan living and watching in Tokyo, Harare or Lima cares as much, as long as he gets to see his favorite team play. The "spending power" or influence of the local fan has consequently been reduced (when comparing to the past) . Lots of subtleties there, but that's what I was talking about.

You can argue that the protest at the ManU game shows the amount of influence the local fans still have. I would say it's still greatly reduced. Decades ago team owners and management would have factored in fan reactions well before trying to jump ship. We just saw last week, that 6 teams did not care as much to have factored any local fan reactions into their thinking process.

7.) 07 May 2021 16:40:02
As always, you assume too much.
I don't live in Liverpool, I don't even live in the UK.
I think fans should have a say in how their club is run.



21 Apr 2021 10:27:02
Ed's, So are we looking at a big player sale now this summer with FSG saying, "sorry were skint we needed a super league", or we looking at, "were sorry, here's Mbappe"?


{Ed002's Note - None of this relates to transfers.}

1.) 21 Apr 2021 11:05:58
OP, that was funny.

2.) 21 Apr 2021 11:11:14
They might sell big players now to pay for others wages and trainings ground facilities etc!
Fans may riot about the now we’ve now money!

3.) 21 Apr 2021 11:48:08
Who would they sell the big players to?
Apparently all the big clubs are skint.

4.) 21 Apr 2021 12:27:54
Ed 002 don't leave me, I have been in love with you since july 2006 and I had loved Ed 001 from June 2006.

5.) 21 Apr 2021 12:46:39
1985, all the clubs are skint and in debt, agents and players need the focus switching on them now.



20 Apr 2021 08:18:12
Can i just say the hypocrisy coming from players and pundits is laughable, they never say anything about the high wages, transfer fees, the rats that are agents fleecing clubs, robbing fans since 92, having to pay £100 for a kit etc, don't see them going in uproar when the subscriptions go up, don't see them banging on about bringing caps into the game, throw in them ****%$rs at Uefa and Fifa into the mix and I have zero sympathy for anyone in this sport except fans.


1.) 20 Apr 2021 09:26:54
Lancaster, to be fair I have not heard a single player or pundit moaning about the money, that’s almost taken a backseat.

The principal horror in the proposal is the anti-competitive nature.

Football has changed and developed throughout its 150+ year journey but it has always maintained the core principal of fair competition.

Yes, that includes money, but Blackburn fans were fine with Walker buying the league, as were Chelsea fans a decade later. However, these proposals stop any club other than the founding 15 from competing regularly in the ‘premier’ competition - THAT is what is wrong.

2.) 20 Apr 2021 09:32:28
The game is dead, money money money. Agents should be the first thing they sort out with all this happening then improve referees standards. We need to decide if VAR is here to stay. To me Money + no fans + VAR has killed the game entirely which is soul destroying even before the ESL stuff came out. Football needs a head wobble and a total revamp to make us the fans fall back in love with the game again.

3.) 20 Apr 2021 10:30:17
Always, spot on, agents are the leeches of this sport, also a ref should come and say why he thought a decision he made was correct instead of permanently hiding away, VAR should be scrapped, its trying to be too clever, i can forgive human error if its explained and also we would then know that technology wouldn't be the best way forward so human error would need to be accepted.



19 Apr 2021 08:14:56
Lets be honest, this has been coming, where there is money there is problems, game has been ruined enough by VAR, i've never liked these owners and made that clear that they should of gone, years ago, they don't give a s@! t about this club, it was what they could build to get investment back from, and here it is, belittle our little sport and make it their own, the league cup and Europa league have been dying for years and the FA cup lost its value for owners since the Premier League and Sky continued to pump stupid money into the league, Uefa and Fifa are just as bent so they need to give it a rest, players and agents aren't innocent all this, they have been killing the game for years with their greed too, seems that this could be the biggest Chance for all FA's to put real caps on agents, players, transfers and owners and make the fans feel likethey count again.


1.) 19 Apr 2021 08:39:29
The clubs that have joined are deep-rooted in utter debt and the current format won't get them through. Players like Haaland demand £20 mill in wages and it's impossible to fill these people.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 09:40:57
It’s alright all the ‘FSG out’ brigade coming out of the woodwork to say ‘I told you so’, the problem with that is that all of the other owners in across the world have behaved in exactly the same way. Owners such as Abramovich and Mansour, the owners that have been the standard that you set FSG against, they’re all going along with this as well.

Maybe that’s it isn’t it. There are no ‘good owners’ or ‘bad owners’, just a sea of people who are so completely detached and apathetic to the values of the club that something like this was inevitable. The only two who have sat out are Bayern and Dortmund, who are owned by the fans. Maybe we need to follow suit with such reforms in this country.

{Ed002's Note - You have not entirely grasped the situation I am afraid.}

3.) 19 Apr 2021 09:54:17
Without them owners we where dead after the cowboys!
Times change football changes and is changing!
Nearly every prem team is guilty of foreign investment!
We are all happy to cry out for big signings new stadiums etc!
This was coming!

4.) 19 Apr 2021 12:02:38
Thermo, and his agent will want double that? Add a fee and there's the problem with modern day players and agents, game went years ago but the boundaries keep getting pushed, Anonymous, I certainly haven't been hiding in the woodwork about my feelings for FSG and its certainly of no reward that it has taken this for fans to see their true colors, Jay they got the club for steal, perfect opportunism perfect time for the big wages, fees etc to be capped now.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 18:22:02
Bravo Lancaster red.

6.) 19 Apr 2021 18:23:25
I don't why fans should give a toss about the esl or whatever really. I just want to see good football.
Might be motivated by greed but then that's the world we live in. Ain't that changing no time soon.
Get in the money join in the ride. Would just love watching quality blockbuster football.
It happened with cricket. The 20-20 and ipl leagues coming in changed cricket. Made way for blockbuster cricket. They were all for greed. Good old test cricket didn't loose its charm. It only improved test cricket.
It could work out similar for football. I don't care about the money been thrown or greed or whatever. As long as the sport as a spectacle doesn't suffer its allright. Its much better than watching the drab football that comes week in week out.
Sport is for entertainment and i think esl would be something new, superior and highly entertaining and I am all for it. Glad LFC have considered it and have been considered for it.
No point in the clubs going into administration few years down the line due to the accumulated debt when there are money options available on the table.
UEFA and FA shouting around because they know nobody is watching if the big ones aren't playing.

Hi Ed002, I was under the impression FSG was a group backed by multiple millionaires with a collective wealth of Billions? If the group were wanting too (hypothetically) put a collection together, we could get an Mbappe, Haaland or Kane and a couple of others, with selling a few fringe players we could of really put together a City type squad for one summer of real investment, then top up 1 or 2 each year? Instead we now need 4/ 5 top top quality signings to catch back up.


{Ed002's Note - No, it doesn't work like that. I am afraid that Liverpool are simply not in a position to beach FFP like that.}

Pickle, we have won the biggest comps going and still not the investment, there is literally nothing else we can do or win, we have the highest percentage of TV money and pick up huge sums for our league finishes, if we haven't looked to splash and build on top of that then there is nothing but pure greed driving these owners, the team is an after thought.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool is a loss making concern - the owners have to make up the difference by whatever way they can.}

The last year let him down, he is replaceable, he isn't a Alisson, Trent, Robbo, Van Dijk, Fabinho or Salah, he played because he was very fit, he didn't use his full potential for us and i think he was too negative for 80 minutes a game, he would show glimpses then return into his shell, like Heskey, had all the promise but never used his gifts constantly.

21 Jun 2021 15:32:27
Not sure he suits City, watching him try and come deep to get the ball and have little to no pace or great ability to take a player on, don't see him fitting into there system and it doesn't worry me what City do, if we get the correct backing, 2/ 3 signings for us and being injury free, we are still there main competition and a major force.

Alisson- Wold Class
Trent- World Class
Van Dijk- World Class
Konate- Potential to be
Robbo- World Class
Gini- Over rated (massively)
Fab-World Class
Hendo- World Class, maybe not football wise but add in leadership and he is World Class
Salah-World Class
Mane-Poor Seaon, but Top Class
Hope that's not to blinkered Ed and if anyone has the agents number for the Spain or England job i'd happily apply.

Wasn't Trent getting hammered for his defending a season or 2 ago? He has improved in that area, Williams is a talent who will improve, for a back up who will play only 5-8 games probably, barring injury, i think the lad needs to be cut some slack, he has the ability just needs the confidence, maybe a loan to get the games and feel of what a hard season feels like would be good for him, but i do think he would more than do a job for us.
