Liverpool have a new signing to get excited about. Confirmed and official:

Sonos. A versatile signing with a loud on pitch presence.

1.) 10 Aug 2021 15:16:03
I've only heard great things.

2.) 10 Aug 2021 15:18:04
Dangerous. Think of how many fans, both home and away, have the Sonos app.

3.) 10 Aug 2021 16:01:49
With the new signing, should we change our Boss?

4.) 10 Aug 2021 16:53:49
We've already changed our BASS by moving to the AXA Training Centre in Kirby ;-)

{Ed0666's Note - maybe we can with the TREBLE this season? By playing heavy metal football.

5.) 10 Aug 2021 17:06:54
A Liverpool player is under investigation for obsessive behaviour, stuff found on his pc, rumours are he is an audiophile.
I thank you! Budum tss.

6.) 10 Aug 2021 19:29:35
I used to tell dad jokes, but then his hearing went and it wasn't as funny.

7.) 10 Aug 2021 19:35:12
Oh come on you know it makes (Hi) Sense.

8.) 11 Aug 2021 02:50:48
Apparently he’s perfect for our high press system, if you give him the right setup the opposition will feel completely surrounded.



09 Aug 2021 09:22:35
Klopp: "There might still be something happening before the end of the transfer window. " - quote after the game.

Klopp usually never gives away anything to do with transfers so that's encouraging. Usually he will say nothing is happening if nothing is genuinely happening. Looks like at least someone will be coming in before the end of the window then.

1.) 09 Aug 2021 10:26:09
But who?

{Ed002's Note - Sanches and Bowen perhaps?}

2.) 09 Aug 2021 10:49:51
Ed002, don’t do that to me on a Monday morning.

3.) 09 Aug 2021 11:25:06
Super smashing great!

4.) 09 Aug 2021 10:36:00
I think you are right Ed. That’s pretty underwhelming but let’s hope Klopp can do his magic.

5.) 09 Aug 2021 11:22:45
I'd take that Ed.

Think its a decent window that.

6.) 09 Aug 2021 11:29:13
We always knew one or two players would be signed before the end of the window. Ed002 has consistently told us that for 2 months. Bowen I think would be good he knows where the back of the net is. We don’t need any more injury prone players so Sanches would be a big gamble. My choice would be to put any monies to just signing one top midfielder player. Athletic cut through us time and again yesterday.

7.) 09 Aug 2021 11:41:34
I don’t see that we need another wide forward as we’ve got Salah, Mane, Jota, Elliott and Ox who can all do that, and our treatment room certainly doesn’t need Sanches to occupy it for over half a season, every season for the next five years. We’ve already got Naby Keita for that.

8.) 09 Aug 2021 12:04:44
"might" is the key word in that statement.

9.) 09 Aug 2021 11:09:00
I hope not. Whilst both would strengthen the team somewhat I feel there is better quality out there.

What fee would Brighton be expecting for Bissouma Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - They don’t want to sell a doc they did it would be too much.}

10.) 09 Aug 2021 11:25:58
Ed is Sanches not going to Barcelona I thought they had agreed personal term with him. Hope we don’t sign them 2 Bowen would cost a decent amount they paid £25m+ for him and his been decent for them so they would want a fair bit more than that for a player who I don’t think would be much better than what we have.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona or Liverpool.}

11.) 09 Aug 2021 11:39:33
Has Sanches not joined Barcelona Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Not yet.}

12.) 09 Aug 2021 11:53:29
I think its either going to be Bowen or Danjuma and Sanchez. whoever comes in Klopp knows what he is doing.

13.) 09 Aug 2021 12:59:37
Renato sanches?
Why is no one interested in pedro Gonsalves sporting lisbon.

14.) 09 Aug 2021 13:02:16
In fairness Athletico were cutting through a midfield of a 36 year old, an 18 year old and according to many on here the worst player ever to lace a pair of boots. We still have a midfield of Hendo, Fab and Thiago to come back.

15.) 09 Aug 2021 13:02:50
Come on Barca. Get that deal over the line! Dembele needs company in the sick bay!

16.) 09 Aug 2021 13:02:52
Always try to give a new signing the benefit of the doubt and hope/ pray they succeed but this is definitely an occasion where I hope Barcelona sign Sanches.

17.) 09 Aug 2021 13:13:13
So reading between the lines the Sanches deal is dependant on foreign player leaving. More than likely either Origi or Shaq.

18.) 09 Aug 2021 12:29:56
ED002 - can we rule out Saul Niguez signing for Liverpool now? Or is he still seen as a viable option?



{Ed002's Note - He is still an option.}

19.) 09 Aug 2021 12:50:12
I’m assuming Ed that we have now been in contact regarding Sanchez. Surely Barcelona can offer more wages than us.

20.) 09 Aug 2021 13:44:44
Hi Ed002 - Has WHU made Bowen available for transfer? Or is it more a case of Liverpool and maybe the player pushing for a deal? Also, did WHU set a price at which they would consider a sale? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - West Ham are aware of interest and have a replacement in mind.}

21.) 09 Aug 2021 15:39:20
-----------Don't post anything about the finances - you simply don't understand -------

22.) 09 Aug 2021 17:44:24
Daretodream I think Barca's current inability to keep paying high wages has been very starkly highlighted by the fact they've had to let one of the finest players ever seen leave as they couldn't afford to keep paying his high wages.

Not that I think we'll get Niguez but surely if his wages are an issue for us then they are as much an issue for Barca?

{Ed0666's Note - Messi departing barca is the best thing to happen to barca ever!!

23.) 09 Aug 2021 21:41:18
ED002 - does that mean we are willing or have some funds to purchase Saul but wages are still an issue - or are we still to raise funds for this purchase on top of the wages.

Sorry if that is a stupid question. My question was due to being told previously that Saul would cost around €60-€70 mil

Sanches is certainly cheaper and younger but his injury record is not great.

{Ed002's Note - Saul would be more difficult because the club will look to having a payment plan if possible. But don’t rule him out - but others are also interested.}

24.) 09 Aug 2021 22:19:43
We should put all the eggs in one basket and go for Saul. We still have 4 or 5 players to sell.



02 Aug 2021 11:30:42
Looks like there's going to be an awful lot of money floating around if the proposed deals in the market are going to happen.

Grealish to City for around £100mil and now Harry Kane going on strike at spurs (potentially another £100mil+ in the prem) . Then the rumours of Mbappe to Real Madrid becoming a reality (probably around £150mil) .

Could have a big knock on effect for the last month of the window.

1.) 02 Aug 2021 11:47:18
No relevance to Liverpool FC. its for clubs with money to splash.

2.) 02 Aug 2021 11:58:57
This is the liverpool page. And we are still broke.

{Ed025's Note - in the words of william shakespeare (and im paraphrasing here) you are boracic lint laa, and have not got a pot to pee in.. :)

3.) 02 Aug 2021 12:16:59
Half of the fan base seems to wish we were owned by some shady Arabs or oligarchs so that we could splash billions on full backs.
We will get what we need in another MF and Forward, although they will of course underwhelm the football manager minded fans.
FSG have done alright so far, and once again, even as we are, the data analysis says we will come 2nd this season (that predictive data system has not been wrong for 4 years apparently) .
Apparently that changes if Manchester United buy Camavinga, who would single handedly add 6 points to their total. However, when we buy Biss and whoever else, they will also add to our total.
Winning the league against a manager like pep with the whole of Saudi's resources behind him is not easy, so anything we do within our means is pretty miraculous.
Enjoy it and stop moaning, Klopp will be leaving in 3 years, and we may never have as good a manager again in our lifetimes.

4.) 02 Aug 2021 12:32:51
It's not Saudi, it's Abu Dhabi. Saudi is about to enter through New castle lol.

5.) 02 Aug 2021 14:32:19
Most don't want to be owned by oligarchs or rich Arabs but we do expect a bit of squad strengthening and some money spent. Yes we've lost money as everyone has due to the C.V. but our owners are not paupers either, they're worth billions aswell. A little bit of investment is needed if we're going to compete with city, utd and Chelsea this season. And before anyone starts I'm not talking massive money signings.

{Ed002's Note - All of the clubs have to work within FFP.}

6.) 02 Aug 2021 14:36:42
We are not broke Redmick, our owners are worth billions.

{Ed002's Note - The worth of the owners is of no relevance. The club has to work within FFP.}

7.) 02 Aug 2021 15:01:39
Indeed Ed, and isn't it more enjoyable seeing players made into better players rather than buying the most expensive? I am excited to see Bissouma quietly join with little fanfare and then kick the ass out of it in our MF.

8.) 02 Aug 2021 14:19:45
Edo25 i was going to write that but thought it a bit explicit for the site. 😅🤣😅well done you.

{Ed025's Note - im not really a PC sort of guy mick, i say it like i played it mate.. :)

9.) 02 Aug 2021 18:21:06
Love to know what pots Everton have collected to pee in recently?

10.) 02 Aug 2021 18:23:22
Red Mick you must be out of your mind! Fsg have done alright so far? Under fsg and Klopp Liverpool have become a real competitive team won the league and the champions league and made multiple finals. They have been brilliant and they have delivered whilst in theory balancing the books. But what you said is right mate.



29 Jul 2021 16:47:37
Hi ed002, bit of a wild question but just asking to put the rumour to bed.

Frank Kessie, excellent player from what I've seen and only one year left on his contract. I assume AC Milan will attempt to tie him down to a deal but is there any interest? Italian outlets are obsessed with linking him to Liverpool atm.

{Ed002's Note - Franck Kessié (CM) Efforts are being made to secure a new contract, but the issue is over the wages continues with Milan struggling. Could potentially be sold but I expect agreement to be reached eventually. Interest of Mr Mourinho at Spurs and now Roma remains.}

1.) 29 Jul 2021 23:01:04
Thanks for the info Ed002.

2.) 30 Jul 2021 12:01:31
He’s pretty much said in the press that his intentions are to renew with Milan and he doesn’t see any other course of action. So I’d expect him to stay there.

3.) 30 Jul 2021 20:11:48
Yeah, he's quoted as saying "Staying in Milan forever". I remember Suarez and Coutinho saying the same exact thing around the time their contracts were being renewed. These footballers are such a loyal bunch. Examples of human virtue. 🤣.



24 Jul 2021 12:38:56
Wilson to Fulham for £12mil completed.

Sales have now reached over £30mil for the summer. One more and you can probably expect a signing.

1.) 24 Jul 2021 15:27:51
After we pay for Jota and Thiago MM.

2.) 24 Jul 2021 15:38:03
I think we are paying them off over 4 years, so this year’s payment will be around £17m. I am sure I will be quickly corrected if I am wrong.

{Ed002's Note - You all need to stop discussing money - there is an incredibly niave understanding of the finances amongst Liverpool supporters.}

3.) 24 Jul 2021 16:35:18
I did say I would get quickly corrected 😉.

4.) 24 Jul 2021 16:41:36
I wish you would stop saying Liverpool supporters instead of SOME or MANY! There are a lot of us who are more intelligent than even you!

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt it.}

Irony overload.

Whoever 2girls1klopp is will you do the rest of us a favour and f*ck off. The rest of us here appreciate the effort the Eds put in to answer our sometimes repetitive questions. If you don't like what the reply is just scroll on by.

8.) 24 Jul 2021 20:46:20
Eds2 with Wilson likely to go to Fulham do you know why Parker left as he seemed to be building a good side there? I’m not sure Silva will be a good fit for young Harry.

{Ed002's Note - His contract ended and after being relegated bothe the club and SP decided it would be best to change direction.}

9.) 24 Jul 2021 20:58:09
There’s always someone that spoils it!

{Ed025's Note - its not the first time longthing and i doubt it will be the last, it will all end in tears when ED002 has finally had enough and walks away mate, these dick heads are spoiling it for themselves and everybody else...its a shame really..

10.) 24 Jul 2021 20:58:24
Anyway, back to the original discussion - in general terms and not specific finance - as well as Jota and Thiago we have also acquired Davis and Konate along the way and that’s an additional amount to be factored in.

With respect to the abuse of the Eds - as has been said - whilst we don’t always agree with you, particularly the ones misguided enough to support other teams, most of the sane ones n the board, really appreciate your efforts and the time you put in on the board and the information and knowledge you share. Long my it continue and hopefully the clowns don’t put you off.

11.) 24 Jul 2021 21:07:13

All you Eds are legends full stop.

Suffering fools gladly.

{Ed025's Note - if only you could see the stuff that doesn,t get printed jonesy, you would be shocked mate..

14.) 24 Jul 2021 21:46:57
Every 3 months time someone will spoil all the fin by being rude to the Ed's. If u are offended by everything he has to say about LFC fans stop reading it, don't **** this up for the other fans. Every couple of months this happens. rant over
Love you Ed's.

{Ed0666's Note - Eds 002 says it the way it is. If people can’t handle the truth. When he informed us about Liverpool aging contacted Zielenskis representatives I didn’t like it but I didn’t think to abuse him. These idiots bite the hands that feed them then when they don’t get fed anymore they’ll bitch some more.

15.) 24 Jul 2021 21:47:11
I don't doubt it buddy, you take a lot of stick on here from what I can only presume is the same sort of idiot who also abuses Saka/ Rashford and Sancho. Total embarrassments.

16.) 24 Jul 2021 22:20:08
You should have banned him the minute he signed up with that username.

FYI Ed002, we are not all c**ks**ING ***holes in Ireland. Only 3/ 4 of us, 5/ 6 max.

17.) 24 Jul 2021 22:37:19
Ed002 makes this the best site on the internet. His knowledge is unsurpassed.

Hope I'm not included in that Davey mate😉.

19.) 25 Jul 2021 10:38:58
Cant imagine this site without ed2. There's be no info (sorry other eds) .

{Ed002's Note - Post of the day - the hamper is on its way.}

20.) 25 Jul 2021 11:34:01
Just ban the tools that send abuse Ed's. There's times I don't like the replies that are given but it never crosses my mind to abuse somebody who is just passing on what they know. I'd also sooner know the absolute truth than have it sugar coated to spare feelings.

21.) 25 Jul 2021 15:41:30
Agreed. No tolerance for childish nonsense. Kick them out, and let's stay on point with what's actually interesting.

22.) 25 Jul 2021 18:54:05
Barry, I don't want to swell your head too much. Was going to joke something back but you know, with all this abuse going around I'll just be honest instead. You seem like a top man. Always enjoy reading your posts and your banter with ed01 in particular is always a good laugh. You re a big plus on this site. you're in the 1/ 6 category.

23.) 25 Jul 2021 23:42:46
I'm just happy I made the category Davey. Actually Davey I'm just glad that I made any category mate cheers👍😃.

18 Sep 2021 17:21:50
Good result that. Far from comfortable but the scoreline says otherwise!

Guys who came in did a good job. Konate impressed me with his 1 on 1 ability and recovery, less so on his awareness at times. That being said he can be coached on that and it was his first game.

Thiago is starting to really impress me, he just controls the whole tempo of the game, fingers crossed his injury isn't serious. Alisson, Salah and Mane brilliant also.

Disappointed with Jota, maybe needs a break? But yeah to rotate key players and still come out with a good win is brilliant.

1.) 18 Sep 2021 17:29:49
Good solid win. Importantly picking up points when a rival dropped them. As a self confessed Keita critic, that was a fabulous goal at the end.

2.) 18 Sep 2021 17:35:30
I think once Bobby returns Jota will drop out and rotate again. Jota hit the ground like a whirlwind last season so it was always going fo be hard to keep that scoring run going. Bobby is proven in there with Mane and Salah who are both on fire so far this season so neither of them should drop out.

It’s been said in the past that without Bobby then Salah and Mane would struggle to score. Well Bobby’s only played 81 league mins this season so that puts that theory to bed. Mane and Salah are top quality and can score with any forward alongside them. Only have to look at their international records and records for Saints and Roma before us.

3.) 18 Sep 2021 17:58:44
yep can you imagine Mane and Salah with a Haaland / world class #9. i'm drooling at the thought.

4.) 18 Sep 2021 19:26:06
Can you imagine a world class #9 bringing to the team what Firmino does?

5.) 18 Sep 2021 19:44:07
Or put another way, Firmino is a world class forward.

6.) 18 Sep 2021 23:48:35
I'd love to see us sign Haaland, but would concede that we would have to change our system to get the best out of him.

7.) 19 Sep 2021 01:55:53
Swayed by the commentators eh? we dominated them most of the game.



24 Aug 2021 14:11:10
Looks like Saul will be joining Chelsea or United on loan. Such a shame he would have been a great signing.

From the midfield options we started with at the start of the window only one remains: Bissouma. That's unlikely also.

Can't lie, I'd be slightly disappointed if we didn't bolster the squad with at least one more signing before the window ended. Here's to hoping Micky Edwards and the transfer gurus can pull something out of the bag in the final week!

1.) 24 Aug 2021 14:32:55
I’d imagine we’ll sign a versatile player that can play in the front 3 and midfield. I’d love us to sign Saul and Doku/ Bowen.

2.) 24 Aug 2021 15:09:05
MonkeyMad your spot on in saying that all the players we had interested in have been dismissed one by one by either going elsewhere or we can’t afforded the fee/ wages. Whilst Coutinho would make some sense to me I just can’t see it and we will go with the players we have with less than a week to go on the window.

3.) 24 Aug 2021 15:09:48
I know it’s easier said than done but If Klopp wants a midfielder and we don't get him one i’d be very disappointed. Coutinho to fill in midfield and the forward positions on deadline day wouldn’t surprise me at all if we can’t get anyone in but it would seem like a desperate panic loan. If it was one or the other i’d take a forward personally.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool should not be buying just for the sake of it.}

4.) 24 Aug 2021 16:43:01
Of course not, I think no player is probably better than the wrong player then being stuck with them.

5.) 24 Aug 2021 16:46:03
Coutinho would make no sense. Too lightweight to play in centre midfield and too slow to play up top. He made his bed. He can fester in it .



22 Aug 2021 19:45:48
Shaqiri to Lyon has been completed, around £9.5mil.

Wish him all the best.

1.) 22 Aug 2021 19:54:36
All the best to him, I think we now need to bring somebody in. Harvey looks very good but I think he’s either a Shaqiri or Gini replacement he can’t be both surely.

2.) 22 Aug 2021 19:57:48
Was actually solid for us, remember the Barcelona assist and the United goals.
Solid move for the lad too.

3.) 22 Aug 2021 20:07:30
He’s not been all that for us but he’s never had chance to get a run of games, I think he can do well at Lyon and I’m surprised more clubs were not in for him, personally I think £9.5m is a steal.

4.) 22 Aug 2021 20:56:42
Wasn’t it his goals that got Mourinho the sack and then Ole the job. If so then Shaq is the gift that keeps on giving.

5.) 22 Aug 2021 21:58:05
Shaq done us proud and hats off to him. So long, my friend.

29 Jul 2021 11:51:31
The rumours are a tad quiet, very little news with regards to transfers. Not even any news with regards to outgoings atm.

Do any of the Ed's have any new developments at all to share with us? Has anything been moving behind the scenes (eg a new target where we have contacted the agent) or maybe even a bid for a player we are looking to sign or even sell.

I understand obviously that we don't have the space in the squad atm however with potentially Shaqiri and Origi on their way, with Nat Phillips and Neco potentially to follow surely we can expect some movement?

{Ed002's Note - A player left two days ago and that has been discussed. Where there is interest in players it has been explained.}

1.) 29 Jul 2021 18:06:15

Yeah a few Spanish Journalists have said that Real Madrid are under the impression that the most significant interest along with themselves is from Liverpool.

I very much have my doubts, if we can't afford Bissouma then how on earth would we afford Mbappe. Pure guesswork.

15 Aug 2021 10:57:07
With Sanches injured who is the realistic midfield target now then?

Saul? Bissouma? Neuhaus? Or absolutely no one?

{Ed025's Note - i would say the fourth one..

I hope not. Whilst both would strengthen the team somewhat I feel there is better quality out there.

What fee would Brighton be expecting for Bissouma Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - They don’t want to sell a doc they did it would be too much.}

I'd be over the moon if we signed Kessie tbh. Such a great player and also a good age. Very versatile also.

Neuhaus would also be a good option but suggestions are he could be a next year job.

Bissouma is very similar to Kessie in that he's versatile (less of a goal threat) but very much prem proven.

Any of those and I'd be extremely happy. Saul would also be excellent.

Not holding my breath however, few more sales needed I expect.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have made no approach for Kessie.}

I agree. Defensive and Midfield options (provided Naby Keita can stay fit) are pretty good.

If rumours are true we would essentially have a back up of Origi, Minamino and Kaide Gordon.

Origi failed to score in the prem last season for us.

Minamino didn't have a great loan at Southampton but is a decent little player.

Kaide Gordon is 16-17 and it would be a big ask for him to perform for us in the prem so early on in his career.

I think the club should definitely be looking to bring in a forward.

26 Aug 2021 12:31:57
Doesn't make much sense. Primarily a LW although can play on the right, 27 years old and doesn't have a very good goal/ assist return for a winger.

For a decent price I wouldn't object but would be surprised as I thought we would try and sign a player of a younger age profile.

Let's wait and see I suppose.

I mean we haven't lost to United in the league for a fair few years now. Even last season when we didn't have a senior CB and were playing fairly badly we still beat their best team for years rather convincingly.

Robbo got injured coming off the back of his own challenge on a player.

It had nothing to do with one of their players putting in a bad tackle.

Sorry Ed002, I know we don't like to speak numbers (my post that was removed effectively was comparing income, wages and spend between Man City and effectively asking the question why do we need to sell but they don't) .

I'm guessing I've forgotten about the stadium regeneration and also the new training complex which does infringe our capacity to spend. The choices of the owners and their stewardship of Liverpool FC also impacts how transfers are operated, which I'm presuming is vastly different in approach to the board and ownership of Man City's.

It's like comparing chalk and cheese.
