Sepp van den Berg is the name lots of websites are reporting about at the moment. Eds, any truths in these reports?


{Ed002's Note - I suspect there is. My notes are out of date but say: Sepp van den Berg (CB) Zwolle kiddie but being watched by a number of sides including PSV, Brighton, Ajax, Lille and Genk - Sampdoria have had a couple of offers rejected - Crystal Palace, Bayern Munich and Liverpool have enquired.}

1.) 25 Jun 2019 10:56:29
Liverpool 'win 1.79m race to sign Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg ahead of Bayern Munich with 17-year-old to have medical on Wednesday.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 13:01:35
Ed01 can you make a player profile on him?

{Ed001's Note - if I can find footage of him to watch I will yes mate. Added him to the list.}

3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:56:37
ed1 please don't lol I feel like a review on a kid is like fuel to the fire for fans. . .

4.) 26 Jun 2019 17:53:30
Lots of pace as he used to be a winger before converting to a centre half. That will probably mean that he'll be able to play as an attacking full back too.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone convert directly from a winger to a centre half.

Sure, winger to full back; centre half to defensive mid; even full back to centre mid (ala Fabinho and Philip Lahm) ; but winger to centre half? never.

5.) 27 Jun 2019 06:18:11
EP, Van Dijk started off as a striker, and I could be completely wrong but didnt Carragher start out upfront too?

6.) 27 Jun 2019 09:52:57
OGRed_Phil. I forgot the centre-half/ forward combo. There's quite a few examples. Chris Sutton was a classic example and regularly played both roles, and dare I mention him? Steven Caulker, haha.

Strikers and Centre Halves share a lot of the same attributes. I don't know if he ever played in defence but I'd imagine that Duncan Ferguson would have made a decent centre half.



20 Dec 2017 10:35:58
So the Miror is reporting today that Coutinho is finally gone in a few weeks?
Eds, January or summer, what would youh say is most likely?


{Ed001's Note - summer is the most likely, though he is trying to get himself out in January.}

1.) 20 Dec 2017 10:50:24
The press must read this website daily. A day or so ago Ed002 mentions meetings by Coutinho agents and his family with the owners now apparently the deal is moving forward.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, even when its news I would rather not believe haha.

2.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56
I personally hope it is January. He doesn't want to be here, let's get it over and done with. Would you agree with this Ed1 or would you prefer him to go in the summer when we can get a replacement? I know its a difficult one, he has been playing better recently but still not up to scratch in my opinion, the whole saga has affected his game since the summer, sure he's had a few decent games, that's about it.

3.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56

{Ed001's Note - I would have sold him in the summer. For me Leicester are the perfect example of the difference that arises when you have players that want to play for you and players that don't. The team that did won the league and almost that exact same team with a few that no longer wanted to be there was in relegation trouble. I know that is not all it was about, but that was the main issue there and you could see the way one player wanting to leave in Mahrez spread seeds of discontent throughout the squad.}

4.) 20 Dec 2017 13:05:03
He is going, that much we can be sure of, however the important thing is that the club gets the best deal it can and buys a suitable replacement and doesn't waste the money.

5.) 20 Dec 2017 11:55:01
That's a good point actually Ed1, I didn't think of the Leicester saga and I do strongly agree, if we'd of flogged him in the summer without messing about I genuinely do believe we may have done a little better if we had. I think it was all up in the air about his future and he disrupted the squad with his antics.

Things seemed to of settled down the past few weeks but it still doesn't disregard the fact he wants out, why keep a player or attempt to who wants out. I'm not too fussed about transfer prices these days because it's confusing but by the sounds of things we could've got a good price for him in the summer so keeping him when he wanted to leave really baffled me to be honest and what worries me now is, Barcelona have other options lined up, I hope to Christ we don;t bugger about should they put an offer in (no doubt they will) because then they could move onto their next target and we're left lumbered with a player who doesn't want to be here.

It may be just be I don't know, I'm far from intelligent with football like many of you are but many of his games this season it seemed to me like he deliberately didn't give a damn, he's been like a ghost many of the games, going missing and what not, not to mention his 'injurys', this doesn't go down well with me. We're still paying his wages, the respect I had for him is gone having said that if he scores a few past Arsenal then fair play but I can't respect the lad anymore. He could've gone about it all in a much more professional way.

{Ed001's Note - football has moved away from the clubs holding all the power so we may as well have just let him go and let him have his wish. I do also feel we would have done slightly better, though he is still affecting games going forward, he is virtually non-existent when we turnover the ball.}

6.) 20 Dec 2017 12:37:32
Ed, do you not think there's some nuance? Saints decision to keep VVD has clearly backfired, his and their form has nosedived and they'll probably get less money now than they could have in the summer. Keeping Coutinho, right now, seems to have been the right call. There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch. We may even get more money now when he does go.

In hindsight I'd say Liverpool got this one right.

{Ed001's Note - I disagree, there has been a very obvious effect. There have been games when he has cost us badly, with his constant refusal to pass when it was on etc and laziness in working back. The team is not good enough, compared to most of the opponents we face, to carry passengers.}

7.) 20 Dec 2017 12:45:10
Good point Ed001 regards Leicester.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

8.) 20 Dec 2017 14:35:39
'There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch'

Half or more than half of the games he has played there has been an obvious effect, a negative one. Same goes with him doing business on the pitch, he doesn't do it a lot, it's only been the past few weeks mate.

I'd say maybe 3-4 games I've thought 'now that's the Coutinho we all know' that's not good enough.

9.) 20 Dec 2017 21:42:33
Can't see him moving in January to sit on the bench especially champions league games where we will probably win it and at Barcelona he can't even play.

10.) 21 Dec 2017 15:53:02
I think Ed has a point. Cou may be scoring goals and assists, no doubt BUT that pales in comparison to what he has doing last season as when he was fit and firing, he was brilliant both offensively and defensively. That is not happening now as he is less effective than last season. He does not pass the ball as quickly and often to open players and chooses o shoot rather than pas like he did disgracefully vs Burnley. He moans when he loses the ball way more often than last season (the Spurs game was a disgrace on this point) and his defensive nous (something we all hailed him for) has nose-dived immensely. This is the point I think, Ed is referring to.



15 May 2017 10:34:49
Ed 002, on May 30, 2016, you stated in your response to a post that Sofiane Feghouli may have been tentatively speculated for Liverpool but you believed he was moving elsewhere with confirmation expected shortly. Well, it happened like you said (not that anyone is surprised you called that right as you almost always do! ) .
Anyway, I thought he was probably the brightest spark for the Hammers yesterday and I was wondering, purely speculating, if there'll any movement this summer for Sofiane Feghouli this summer, and if so, if it has anything to do with Liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of two clubs who have spoken with West Ham about Sofiane Feghouli but Liverpool moved on to Mane last season and seem satisfied with him.}

1.) 15 May 2017 12:14:30
I think satisfied would be an understatement ed.

2.) 15 May 2017 13:57:38
What makes you think he is good enough for us? Cannot even get into the West Ham first team.

3.) 15 May 2017 16:41:05
Neither could mascherano but he turned out alright (potential understatement) . Sometimes quality players don't suit the team / manager they play for, it doesn't affect their qualities and fit in other teams. I have no idea if feghouli is any good but if our scouts decide they want him I will support him, as with all players.

4.) 16 May 2017 19:09:46
Mascherano was a top class player playing for a numpty manager who didn't understand how to use him. Feghouli is a bang average player.

5.) 18 May 2017 18:42:20
That numpty manager named Alan Pardew, was the one who thought a highly-rated Mascherano from Argentina knocking on the door of the national team, was inferior to the great Hayden Mullins. There's a reason he is a woeful n=manager, out of a job, and bitter who has not gotten over LFC and SG snatching the FA Cup from in in 2006.



07 May 2017 11:30:23
Sorry Eds if this has been touched on before, but it was on a name on the Sharkopod so I thought I should ask. Is Liverpool really linked to Lukasz Teodorczyk? Who has watched him play? Is he any good? I read he's the new Lewandowski!
Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - It is a different Merseyside based club who has shown a little interest.}

1.) 07 May 2017 18:14:11
For the love of god, I am sick of Tranmere Rovers stealing all the good players!

2.) 07 May 2017 19:07:11
hahahaha nice one MK.

3.) 08 May 2017 09:33:54
I only watched him on our national team, and he's average. He's behind Lewandowski and Milik in pecking order.

4.) 09 May 2017 14:08:08
Send him to Woodison then 😂.



28 Jan 2016 19:14:20
Ed002, you commented on the Emil Forsberg rumor at the beginning of the month and December last year I think. Is Leicester still in the running? I just rwas Leipzig feel insulted because of a 9 million Euro bid from us. Please enlighten if you have time to.


{Ed002's Note - RBL's Emil Forsberg was a player that Claudio Ranieri tried to sign as Monaco manager and now as Leicester manager he has returned and will look for a deal in January - but I think it unlikely that anything can be done. Previous interest of Liverpool dates from an attempt by Brendan Rodgers to purchase the player from Sundsvall when he first arrived at the club - but he opted for Assaidi. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool returning, nor of any €9M bid and the owner of Leipzig when asked about Liverpool interest said he didn't know of any. If interest has returned it would cetainly spell the end of Markovic and pehaps someone else. Interest of PSV, Fiorentina and Lille existed when he was at Malmo but he made the move to RBL instead. Do not be surprised by a bid from Lyon - again January is not a likely time for him to move.}

Happy anniversary, Jurgen Klopp.
Thank you for all the joy you've brought to me and millions of Reds worldwide. You're a legend already, but hope you achieve immortality in May!


1.) 08 Oct 2019 18:59:45
Spot on, Noski. All Hail The Normal One!



11 Jul 2019 00:39:03
I saw this video and I thought I'd share. It's called Sensible Transfers: Liverpool, and if possible, I'd like to hear what you guys think about it.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 03:14:39
I think we don't need Fekir or any new forward we have more than enough with Firmino, Salah, Mane, Origi, Shaqiri, Lallana and Brewster.
In middlefield we have Keita, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson, Milner and Chamberlain. We don't need to add any middlefield too.
In defence we have VanDijk, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, A. Arnold, Clyne and Robertson. Here we need a LB and if Clyne leaves a new RB too.
In the goalkeeping department we have Alisson, Mignolet and the irish kid. We need too add an experienced keeper only if Mignolet leaves.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 03:52:59
I typically like their analysis but I thought it was odd that they only focused on striking options. Yes we don't have a like for like replacement for Firmino, but the team can and have adapted in his absence. They point out that there are better options out there than Origi and while I agree, do we want to spend millions on upgrading our backup striker? would someone better agree to be a backup?

With Salah and Mane capable of playing there and Brewster coming through I don't see it as a problem area. Would have loved their take on a versatile fullback or creative midfielder.

{Ed001's Note - who is a better option than Origi? He scores goals, that is priceless.}

3.) 11 Jul 2019 05:47:19
Origi doesn't just score goals, he scores big goals too. Late winner in the Merseyside derby, late winner against Newcastle to keep the title challenge alive, winner against Barca, and goal to seal the victory in the CL final.

{Ed001's Note - spot on.}

4.) 11 Jul 2019 05:53:20
I suspect that Liverpool announced their major Summer signing yesterday, Ed001, with Origi’s new contract?

I totally get it if this is indeed the club’s stance but, personally, I’d look at bringing Coutinho back. The fact that we’ve looked at Fekir, and bought Shaqiri, is testament that he was never properly replaced.
But Origi will be the main man next season as cover for any of the front three.

{Ed001's Note - oh for heaven's sake, can we stop going on about a player who improved us by leaving? We are better without.}

5.) 11 Jul 2019 06:04:37
Plenty of strikers are better then Origi, but I don't see why they'd be interested in playing second fiddle to Firmino. Wasn't meant to be a dig at Origi, who's a great backup and likeable lad. Glad he signed the extension.

6.) 11 Jul 2019 07:31:39
Origi was on fire til getting kicked by funes mori, he was really getting a good consistent level, then he had too rebuild his own confidence, he deserves all the credit in the world for were he is now Important goals in champs semis an final I said beforehand he would have an impact an I am made up he did, hope he shows us wat he can do he is still so young .

7.) 11 Jul 2019 10:04:32
I hope it works out well for Origi. I do not think his all round game is good enough, he certainly needs to improve his passing.
Sitting on the bench most of the season with limited opportunities is not going to improve his confidence or game. He would have been better off going to a club where he had regular game time. I certainly hope I am wrong on this.

8.) 11 Jul 2019 10:39:23
I wouldn't have coutinho back if he was free, he's nowhere near the level Liverpool require now, this isn't opinion it's fact.

9.) 11 Jul 2019 12:44:37
I was gunna share this Noski. This guy does amazing statistical analysis on loads of teams and players and has been for a while. Definitley worth a subscribe if any of you use youtube regularly.

10.) 11 Jul 2019 14:58:41
Madness Salah. On a free every club in the world would take Coutinho.

11.) 11 Jul 2019 15:09:40
Maybe yeah, apart from Liverpool, do you really think we'd take him back if he was free? No chance.

12.) 11 Jul 2019 16:35:53
Solomon Rondon £16M release clause. There's a name for a realistic backup striker.
Just to clarify, I too like Origi but this is if we were looking for a backup centre forward. Someone who could cover the front three would make more sense but anyway.



18 Apr 2019 16:26:26
Ed002, please could you answer this question for me, if you're available? Nothing serious nor urgent, just curious.
A while ago, there was discussion on here that England was at the risk of losing their 4th Champions League qualification spot because of weak performance in Europe in general, both in the Champions League and the Europa League. I know you talked about a coefficient or ranking system. With the run this year and with Liverpool reaching the finals last year, how much improvement has been made in the ranking? Is England still in danger of losing a spot?


{Ed002's Note - No, it is going rather well. England is up to second overall, and obviously, for this season alone is top of the hit parade. So for a while it is not an issue at all.}

1.) 19 Apr 2019 23:41:41
Cheers Eds002 nice to know.



20 Aug 2018 19:56:53
Eds 001 and 002, is there a way we can put a funding page together or something like that for Salah once we know his situation?

Salah, walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone.


{Ed001's Note - yes, of course mate, we could do that. Just need to know what is happening first.}

1.) 20 Aug 2018 20:37:36
Ed001 is right we kneed more information then we will get the ball rolling for him.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 22:34:46
Just read the orignal post from earleir today.
I hope you get well soon Salah and what ever it is, that you overcome it and come back better than before.

Also great to read everyones well wishes.

Best Wishes.

Does anyone know what shirt number Fabinho is going to be allocated?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 10:55:47
Seems like he has chosen 99. Club shop is selling his shirt with 99.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 11:45:01
I think that’s more on the lines of a number hasn’t been allocated yet. I wouldn’t go getting a number 99 Fabinho shirt just yet. I seem to remember a player being refused 99 last year by the FA? Maybe Prem or Championship?

He’ll prefer 2, Clyne is the current incumbent. Perhaps just waiting until he leaves. Or perhaps he’ll take 3.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 11:48:04
Actually, just looked into it. It was Renato Sanches, he wanted 85 but was refused.

‘But due to Premier League rules, squad numbers must be consecutive and closer to the highest current number. ’ I’m sure this isn’t always enforced though.

{Ed002's Note - Some clubs allocate first team numbers to players who are then loaned out - this tends to cause gaps.}

Stadium size is not the only way to show you're a world class team. Don't forget that there's a human and environmental cost to these expansions as have been previously explained. So, unless you're looking for a brand new, shiny Maracana-sized stadium to underline our status, you should just wait to see what happens.


{Ed047's Note - believe it or not Arsenal have over 60,000 on the waiting list for a season ticket.

Little Naby and Pegleg, could you please tell me how many teams were beating down Andy Robertson's door when we signed him? And how on earth are you able to determine that Origi's stock is at the highest right now, at 24 years of age and coming back into form and reckoning?
You guys epitomize the exact thing that's wrong with modern fans, but I'm particularly disgusted because this kid has done everything he's been asked and has just played a major, major part in maintaining our title pursuit last season and winning us our first trophy in almost a decade.
To justify your nonsense you suggest that it might just be better to play Camacho or Woodburn. ahead of Origi, because, as you implied, they might just be better! It is truly pathetic that you feel the only way to measure our progress or readiness to win major trophies is by having better players on the bench than Origi. There was a time Machedo won Manchester United the league; John O'Shea; Felipe Anderson; list goes on.
I don't think we deserve anything with "fans" like you! I see now why Ed002 loves Liverpool fans! Keep it up!

I think Milner had a poor game. But Salah too? Something seems to be bothering him. He's always missed chances, but his decisions are getting worse now, and I don't know it he's just trying too much or just wanting too much that he screws everything up. I worry about him.
For Sunday, I'd play Fab, Gini and Ox in the midfield and bring in Hendo in the second half to snap at people and get into fights!

Ed001 and fellow Reds, if proven that the VAR lines were doctored and it was done deliberately, do you think the FA will do something about it, maybe apologize to Liverpool or suspend Martin Atkinson or anything like that?
Also, I saw an analysis that Mane may have dived for his yellow card for simulation, but there was indeed contact. With his yellow cards count now accumulating, could we appeal that the card is rescinded?


{Ed001's Note - the FA won't do anything, why would they? It is just like all the players caught breaking drugs rules, swept under the carpet as it is bad for the game's image.

We can't appeal.}
