Hi Ed002, please can I bother you for a minute? I'm just wondering if Liverpool are still interested in Bowen. I know you've written about him in the past but given his current form, I was wondering if there's anything new as far as Klopp's interest in the player. Also, do you think West Ham will do business if the player was interested in the move? Any info will be appreciated. I just think given stronger players and coaching, that guy can score 20 goals a season.
Thanks, 002.


{Ed002's Note - Jarrod Bowen (RW/LW) I am still not aware of any formal approach to West Ham by Liverpool, but Bowen is a player who would be an ideal replacement for the now departed Shaqiri and perhaps to depart Oxlade-Chamberlain or Minamino - and he is HG. Liverpool have a good relationship with his agent and have apparently spoken with him. I don't know if West Ham would be open to selling. Their focus is on other positions. So it makes some sense if West Ham are open to a sale and if the player accepts a bit-part role. Previously Leicester had an approach turned down by West Ham. Spurs want to add competition to Moura but I think Bowen would want to be a starter so any club signing him would need to convince him of their project. I would not totally rule it out.}

I don’t see it unless one of Firmino, Diaz, Salah, Mane or Jota leave. I think we could convince him to come in and be a part of a ‘front 5’ but doubt he would (or should) accept an Origi style role.

2.) 09 May 2022 18:01:01
Unless we see him playing behind Salah on the right side of the midfield, which is a total change in position for him, then I'm unsure how it could fit unless someone significant moves on.

3.) 09 May 2022 17:27:49
Thank you for your reply, Ed002! Hopefully Salah is sorted out sooner than later. I don't mind Bowen at all. Who's is agent, if I may? I don't have any football contacts or anything, but just watching him, Bowen strikes me like a hardworker, and I've just become sick of Salah's singing to the media rather than focusing on his football! Everything you said makes sense in terms of his homegrown status and potential space (s) in the team. Not sure he'll command a huge salary at first either, so what's not to like? Salah wasn't the Egyptian King until he came to Liverpool; who says we couldn't find the next one?

{Ed002's Note - He shares an agent with Roberton and Alexander Arnold.}

4.) 10 May 2022 10:23:06
10 goals and 10 assists strikes me as a player on the up. Maybe the answer is to sell both Mane and Salah then bring in Bowen and Nunez.



28 May 2021 08:23:32
Ed002, your last reference to Hakan Calhanoglu and Liverpool was in December 2016 and you stated at that time that there was no interest in the player. I just read he's on the free this summer and Liverpool might be interested as a replacement for Gini. They don't seem like similar players in my opinion. He might also have some personality issues from what I read somewhere.
Is there any chance Liverpool is interested? Any insight is appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - Hakan Calhanoglu (AM/LW) Player wants a new contract - Milan will oblige if agreement can be reached over his wages - and it may depend on what happens with loanee Bahim Diaz. Atletico and Juventus have asked his German-based agent if a move is possible for them. The agent remains keen on the idea to try the player out in England or in Germany again but may have to accept staying in Milan - but Juventus may persist. Certainly approaches have been made to Manchester United and Chelsea. I am not aware of an approach by Liverpool but he would cost the club far less than the preferred options.

1.) 28 May 2021 09:52:42
Thank you, Boss! I appreciate the info!
Have a nice day.

2.) 28 May 2021 10:07:37
Seems like a potentially cost effective way of replacing shaq if he leaves. If the club moves on Origi too still leaves space for Elliot.

{Ed002's Note - He plays in a different position.}

3.) 28 May 2021 15:19:18
I was thinking more of in the squad with Elliot could fill the Shaq role (RW / cover for Salah) and Calhanoglu cover AM / Manes LW side. To be honest though with how little Shaq has played this season I am not totally sure of his position :D.

4.) 28 May 2021 20:54:23
Hi Ed. have you heard Teun Koopmeiners? Is there any possibilities that LFC is interested? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Teun Koopmeiners (DM) AZ are reluctant to sell but if they could raise €20M it would help the club. Leeds, Sevilla and Napoli have a declared interest but Roma are already in talks with AZ. I am not aware of any approach from LIverpool - he would be a Fabinho replacement not a Wijnaldum replacement.}



26 May 2021 15:09:46
Hi Ed002, I know you addressed the Youri Tielemans rumor on May 20, but it's all over the news today, and I wondered if anything changed since you last addressed the rumor, specifically, if Liverpool are now interested in him as widely rumored today.



{Ed002's Note - I don't know what has been said but the media typically repeat a single suggestion - I am not aware of any approach to either his club or agent. He would be a great deal more expensive than the players that the club have shown an interest in.}

1.) 26 May 2021 15:37:03
I would much prefer Bissouma even with the AFCON issue. Anguissa is another and would probably be more affordable given Fulham's relegation.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have no interest in Anguissa.

2.) 26 May 2021 15:49:13
Shame cheers Ed2.

3.) 26 May 2021 15:59:38
Thanks, Ed. Also, thank you for all the honest feedback, news and views you've shared through the season.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

4.) 26 May 2021 17:31:29
Surely Leicester would charge an absolute premium for his services?

5.) 26 May 2021 19:19:01
I’d love tielemans to be fair, he would be a huge upgrade on wiji. Not sure what sort of fee Leicester would be looking to charge, but I can’t imagine it being cheap. He’s better than all the other players we are reportedly looking at in midfield in my opinion.

6.) 27 May 2021 11:54:40
Is the other player we have shown an interest in Bissouma?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has an interest in him.}

7.) 27 May 2021 14:57:35
Thanks Ed - I would be over the moon if we managed to sign him. If we managed to get Konate, Bissouma and a forward like Daka or Malen I would be very happy. All 3 signed with a view to being starters at some point but we can bed them in and barring injuries we wouldn’t be reliant on them.



19 Nov 2019 20:36:42
Hi Eds, pardon me if you've already discussed this before. Is Liverpool really interested in Amine Harit from Schalke? If so, who do you think he'll replace?



{Ed002's Note - Amine Harit is having a decent season but I am not aware of interest of Liverpool. He would be effectively a like-for-like replacement for Shakiri and he would likely get around the same amount of opportunities. He will be 21 or so now and I would expect a drop to the bench would not be attractive for a player who is playing regularly at a good level. He has turned down clubs in the past as it would stagnate. It makes no sense for the player or the club.}

1.) 20 Nov 2019 02:26:10
Thanks for your response! I appreciate it.

2.) 19 Nov 2019 22:30:24
Ed002 you’ve cited midfield / AM as possible positions that Liverpool may strengthen in summer.
What level of player do you envisage if such a move seems unattractive for this lad?
Someone who’ll go straight in the team or what, as midfield is the one area that Klopp regularly rotates and game time may be more readily available than elsewhere in the team?

{Ed002's Note - If they are to go straight in to the team then first team players will need to leave - so it would not be a simple case of Coutinho replacing Shakiri as Shakiri is a bit part player - the same if replacing Lallana. The club should be looking to see if they can get a work permit for Grujic before looking at the market.}

3.) 20 Nov 2019 12:20:48
On the midfield subject Ed do you think there is a chance Shaqiri might leave in Jan or the Summer in search of more opportunities?

{Ed002's Note - I would think he will go in the Summer.}

4.) 20 Nov 2019 17:11:25
Owe ok mate, I was thinking he might be getting annoyed at lack of playing time. You mentioned Zielinski previously, do you think he is attainable or far fetched for the summer mate please? Guess he wants to be guaranteed starter every week.

{Ed002's Note - As a wildcard I would not lose sight of PZ. Klopp likes him and got Liverpool a warning for tapping him up previously.}

5.) 20 Nov 2019 18:03:51
Ok Ed cheers mate, I get what your saying. Looks a decent player to me, not sure he is a big improvement to what we have but would be a welcome addition imo.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp thought so - but when it all came out (only about a year ago) everyone was in denial because of a new contract at Napoli. Now Napoli are in a very difficult position there might well be an opportunity.}

6.) 20 Nov 2019 22:50:51
Appreciate the info as always Ed. Let’s see what develops.

7.) 21 Nov 2019 12:53:30
Eds, how would Zielinski fit into this midfield though? Keita, Lallana, and Milner have all seen part-time duties from injuries or just lack of opportunity. I get it with Lallana and Milner considering the stage of their careers, but Keita obviously wasn't brought in to sit on the fringes. Do you think he would have to move on in order to make room for Zielinski or do you see a setup where we'd add him without subtracting Keita?

{Ed002's Note - He would have been a significantly better option than Nobby Keita. I don't suppose there would be many tears if he were moved on. But you are right, if players are to come in then others have to go. Against him is also that if Grujic returns and gets a Work Permit how he will fit in to an already crowded midfield where there are three starting places available. Lallana is more attacking that PZ. If money is spent on replacing Shakiri and bringing in a starting player in an attacking role (e.g. the Coutinho type), then that means that there will be only two spots available in midfield - something like 4-2-3-1 or 4-2-1-3.}

8.) 22 Nov 2019 08:55:27
Have to agree with Ed002 about the midfield congestion. Even if Milner and Lallana go, we still have 6 senior midfielders (provided Grujic gets a WP) . How do u expect the club to convince another midfielder to join unless assurances r made that people like Grujic, Keita or even Hendo are moved on?
I'd rather sign a versatile forward to replace Shaq and only sign a midfielder if Grujic or Keita move on.



25 Jun 2019 10:07:14
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 didn’t 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.

19 Jun 2022 05:08:57
It's really a disgrace that we keep talking about abuse every window. Okay, we can disagree from time to time, but why abuse the Eds? Can't people just banter without abuse? This is just completely unnecessary and unacceptable! Funny as many of us are quite sensitive when people say nasty things about our Club or Scousers, or our fan base. How can we then turn around and abuse the Eds who painstakingly provide free info and keep us informed day in day out about what's going?
Really baffling. This needs to stop NOW! Thanks for all you do Eds!


1.) 19 Jun 2022 07:27:40
Well said Noski.

2.) 19 Jun 2022 09:08:53
What Noski said.

3.) 19 Jun 2022 09:30:30
Wise words Noski, sadly there is a minority of lowlife morons who use social media, as they can hide behind a keyboard. If they do not get the reply they want from the Ed's, they become abusive. Of course, they would not behave like this in person as they would get chinned regularly.
We don't see the abusive posts as they are deleted, but no doubt Ed02 gets the worst of it as he provides the transfer info.
It is difficult to stop completely, as these idiots use different accounts/ usernames.
It is the decent posters who will lose out, due to a minority of scumbags, as is often the way in life.
Finally, thanks to all the Eds for a great site, which I have read daily since 2011, although I post.

4.) 19 Jun 2022 09:38:53
It's human nature unfortunately. Dicks are always going to be dicks and do dickish things, and a club this size will have its fair share "following" it.

5.) 19 Jun 2022 09:43:45
It doesn't matter how much we want to discuss it, it's always going to happen, it's wrong but that's the internet in general nowadays. It's poison for abuse. Keyboard warriors going on and on without thinking about it. Sad part about it on here is the litte rats ruin it for the rest of us who value the information given.

Well said Noski. Thank you to all the Eds, it never goes unapreciated by the vast majority.

6.) 19 Jun 2022 10:18:55
Without internet you can’t get into this site Salah. Internet is no poison. People are and that remains with and without internet.

7.) 19 Jun 2022 11:14:09
Good lord. I just agreed with Harry.

8.) 19 Jun 2022 11:36:05
It's just wrong, some people are just keyboard warriors acting tough and aggressive and abusive online but wouldn't dare say boo to you in person. I'm sure we don't see half the abuse the Eds get

We've got the odd nasty troll on the live chat trying to start something and pick a fight but they've then been kicked out by Ed 25 or Ed 7 usually - to think the Eds get that crap daily is unthinkable. Just why? You ask a question, one of the Eds is good enough to answer, hardly their fault if you don't like that answer! Not a job I could do, I'd take too much pleasure winding these little f****** up tbh, thank you to the Eds that post in spite of these nasty ones though.



08 Jun 2022 20:15:29
Ed001 or Seano or any other Red/ Ed who knows their stuff on the subject matter: how would you compare Nunez vs. Haaland? Would you say Nunez might be Liverpool's answer to Haaland? They're close in age more or less, and are both tall strikers. Seems like the return of big strikers (Harry Kane too) . Anyway, I digressed, but I wondered if you could compare Haaland vs. Nunez in terms of style of play and approach and that kind of stuff.
Also, how would you compare Nunez and vintage Fernando Torres? Just trying to gauge what kind of a striker he is, beyond the two games against us last season.
Any reply is appreciated.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 22:37:58
He is a bigger Torres with worse ball control, first touch and technique. But is still young and could become better in those aspects. He has great work rate, decent pace, decent finishing and good off the ball movement, good heading and has a good shot on him. His passing also needs work. Haaland is currently better because he has a very good first touch and technique but Darwin works much harder so i would say both players fit the teams they are joining.

If i had any say though i wouldn't sign Darwin Nunez. Laurito Martinez, Nkunku, Anthony from Ajax would be before him on my list. Specially considering the price. But am Not Klopp so i won't pretend to know better than him.



18 May 2022 13:56:31
I've been reading all the comments about Villa's impact on Sunday. I don't think it helps them that they have to play on Thursday before Sunday, but that's the way it goes. It will take a miracle for Gerrard's boys to get anything out of the City game, because City is going to throw absolutely everything at that game. But, I'm consoled by the fact that there's no chance Gerrard will allow his players play like there's nothing at stake. Whether they pull it off or not is anyone's guess, but I know Gerrard's boys will be fired up, no questions about that. Coutinho will be up for it; Ings will be a nuisance. Those boys will play like their lives depend on it; Stevie will make sure of that.
If it doesn't go our way at the end, we'll hold our heads up high, chase absolute perfection and go for the quadruple next year!
What a season we've had! Sp proud of this team that was written off by pundits aplenty before the start of the season.
Walk on. YNWA!


1.) 18 May 2022 16:57:08
I am looking at it like this. If Man City defence looks only half as disorganised and panicky as it did against West Ham, Villa's attackers will be relishing the challenge.

Also thinking stranger things/ miracles have happened - the comeback in Istanbul. the comeback against Barcelona.

That big boned lady with the slow metabolism might have another verse in her yet!

2.) 18 May 2022 18:01:01
I think there is no point in thinking about the city game. All we can do is win our game and hope for the best.

3.) 18 May 2022 20:29:42
OP, we have no pressure right now. We weren’t supposed to win the title anyway so nothing has changed. People said for weeks on here that they couldn’t see City dropping points despite them actually dropping point and then when they had a chance to ice the league, Mahrez bottles the penalty.

The pressure is on City, not on us. Why? We were not supposed to win the title. City are. If they win then, it’s expected cos that was supposed to happen. If we win then, it’s a huge upset. And one more thing: Everything I just said, Pep, his players and City fans know it too. I’m relaxed.

4.) 18 May 2022 20:47:27
I'm really looking forward to Sunday. Aside from the obvious importance, it'll be the first time ever that I will be looking simultaneously at 2 games, plus keeping a watchful eye on the multiple meltdowns, heart attacks, hysterics and gymnastics on the live chat. 💪🏽.

5.) 18 May 2022 22:31:09
In fairness the people who said City wouldn’t drop points in hindsight were clearly wrong. But the people who are calling those posters out are the same ones that said we wouldn’t drop points and they were also wrong. As they say 2 wrongs don’t make right so not sure why people are almost gloating about it.

6.) 18 May 2022 22:38:02
I am fluctuating between excitement and despair. The excitement of all the Liverpool connections in the Villa squad doing us a massive favour and the the despair of remembering Tyrone Mings will be playing.

7.) 18 May 2022 23:18:16
I will concentrate solely on the Liverpool game and enjoy the last home game of the season. City will be out of site by half time in thier game. Hopefully we can take a few key players off to rest them for the 28th come the hour mark when City score their 4th. Its horrible that it isn't in our hands but there's no point torturing ourselves with fantastcile fairy tales of a former player coming back to manage a team that defeats our rivals. I think we will run riot ourselves against Wolves can't wait to see it. But as for City, they will do the same. I expect 5-1 to be the score in that game.

8.) 19 May 2022 08:37:39
JK23, wind your neck in, bro. At no point did I call anybody out for anything, gloat about anything nor did I say anyone was wrong to say they did not see City dropping points. If you inferred that then, that is a You-problem, not mine.

That was their opinion at the time even tho, I didn't agree. All I was saying is that many on here did not see them dropping points and YET they did vs WH therefore, anything can happen vs Villa hence, I'm relaxed. Be sure to know the difference before you get on your soapbox and start lecturing others based on you projecting your own interpretation on others.

9.) 19 May 2022 09:22:24
Oli read the post again.

I said people. If it was aimed directly at you i would have said Oli.

I didn’t articulate the post that well but if you interpreted it was aimed directly at you then that’s a You problem not mine.

Plus for future reference I won’t be winding anything in so probably save yourself time by trying to tell me too from your soapbox 👍.



08 May 2022 19:08:41
Congrats, ED025! Everton deserve to be in this league!


{Ed025's Note - cheers noski but there’s a long way to go yet mate..

1.) 08 May 2022 22:26:29
I agree, but momentum is an important thing in the dying embers of this season, so your boys seem to have found a way right at the death!
Hopefully you'll survive and be better and stronger for it; learn the right lessons and recuit smartly going forward. All the best!

{Ed025's Note - if we do survive noski we need to learn from this and build again, with players that are proud to wear the shirt mate..



04 May 2022 03:23:01
I'm thinking about Gini Wijnaldum tonight. To miss out on all of these must be hard to take, considering the yo-yo season he's had. I just wonder if he'd be there to cheer his old boys up.
Wow, Liverpool! We've come a long way, haven't we?


1.) 04 May 2022 08:00:30
But part of the reason we've gone to the next level (whether people like it or not) is that we found better solutions on the pitch to the likes of Gomez, Wijnaldum and Firmino. 3 players who played their part, but were never truly elite. Konate, Thiago and Diaz are all just better players. Wijnaldum would be a grossly overpaid impact sub if we'd matched what PSG are paying him.

2.) 04 May 2022 08:11:21
Mane playing through the middle changed the game. Jota will now need to work incredibly hard to make into the starting eleven. I can’t see it happening myself.

3.) 04 May 2022 09:33:15
MK scouser, i think your being a bit harsh on Gomez in injuries have held him back, but his a world class defender in the making, I'd rather him come off the bench, then englands current no1.

4.) 04 May 2022 09:50:28
Finglasred, Gomez was a decent player pre-injury and i suspect he'll get back to that level. He has always relied on his recovery pace though. For me he's just a slightly taller Kyle Walker. Seems a great bloke, but i personally think he'll follow Gini out the door this summer. I suspect Bobby might too.

The 3 of them are cult heroes but we've moved on as a team in my opinion.

5.) 04 May 2022 10:34:57
At the end of this season Gomez will have lost almost 2 years of playing Premier League and CL football as a centre back.

I agree the lad is quality and you only have to look at the current crop of English Centre backs (Maguire, Mings etc) to see how good he actually is. Problem is he’s battling for a starting place with Matip and Konate and not such overrated English centre half’s.

He’s likely sacrificed going to a World Cup by staying as a squad player so it could be a case of how much more he’s willing to sacrifice.

Matip can’t go on forever but the way he’s remained injury free this season shows he could potentially have a few more seasons left in him.

I’d love Gomez to stay but I think a lot depends on him.

6.) 04 May 2022 12:27:30
Can’t help but feel sorry for Jota. He came into the squad knowing we had a formidable front three and he would have some job ahead of him to break into it, but break into it he did, only for Diaz to come in and throw him right back out again.

7.) 04 May 2022 12:55:04
Konate, Thiago and Diaz have won nothing of note yet. Let's wait until they actually do. As it stands Gini has a League and CL medal in his back pocket and a few other minor medals.

8.) 04 May 2022 14:12:15
That means absolutely bugger all TIR.

9.) 04 May 2022 14:34:36
Salah, some people are very strange and would rather reminisce over the past than look forward to the future. Djimi Traore has more Champions League titles than Tsimikas but that doesn't mean he was a better left back.

10.) 04 May 2022 14:31:05
Mikey I think Jota has been our worst player since Diaz has come in but has still been given chances so I don't feel too bad for him. Really needs to up his game.

11.) 04 May 2022 15:17:01
The proof is in the pudding, plain and simple. If these are elite players and better than the three mentioned then it should result in trophies. After all they are added to an already great team?

You're right MK, Traore did win a CL medal. The team didn't win much else. The team Gini and the other 2 played in won the League as I have said and CL plus other minor trophies. That makes them a great team in my opinion. It seems that the excuses are ready to be rolled out if THIS team doesn't succeed, which Konate, Thiago and Diaz are a part of?

12.) 04 May 2022 15:53:25
Interestingly enough MK, you are more than happy to talk about Gini (the past! ) and then only too keen to shut the conversation down if your post is challenged?

Maybe in future you can let us know what can be talked about and when you want it to stop 👍.

13.) 04 May 2022 16:53:46
You can't say Konate is a betetr player than Gomez already. He's only been here 5 minutes and has been very ropey in a couple of games. I think his goals have glossed over some of his mistakes personally. People seem to forget Gomez and VVD were the preferred partnership for a long time before his injury and he is only kept out of the team by Matip playing very well and staying fit, he just hasn't had a chance to get his place back. I would also Firmino was an 'elite' player whilst at LFC, I agree he isn't at that level now, but to dismiss him so nonchalantly is disrespectful for what he has done over the years. Diaz is certainly an excellent signing and incredible player, but let's hope he does it long term before building his statue.

14.) 04 May 2022 18:52:17
I'll remember Wijnaldum for being part of the team that won the League for the first time in 30 years and being part of the team that won the European Cup for the sixth time. With a special mention for his two goals in the semi final.
Apart from that I don't think about him that much.

15.) 04 May 2022 19:17:37
TIR are you actually saying Zthiago has never won anything?

Would that be apart from the Spanish League 4 times, the German League 7 times and the. CL 3 times.

Bowen will make a very fine addition to our team, especially if any of Sadio or Salah should leave. I really like him!

Thank you for your reply, Ed002! Hopefully Salah is sorted out sooner than later. I don't mind Bowen at all. Who's is agent, if I may? I don't have any football contacts or anything, but just watching him, Bowen strikes me like a hardworker, and I've just become sick of Salah's singing to the media rather than focusing on his football! Everything you said makes sense in terms of his homegrown status and potential space (s) in the team. Not sure he'll command a huge salary at first either, so what's not to like? Salah wasn't the Egyptian King until he came to Liverpool; who says we couldn't find the next one?


{Ed002's Note - He shares an agent with Roberton and Alexander Arnold.}

I feel we're privileged to get some of this inside scoop from Ed002, and honestly, the knowledge from the Ed that Salah has been on sale for 2 or 3 years now has really helped me to "move on" mentally from this current situation and just take everything I can get from Salah until such a time when he's no longer a Liverpool player.

Thanks for all the updates over the years, 002. I just wished Salah and his crew would show some decency and respect to the club and fans no matter how much they think they deserve this pay day!



{Ed002's Note - The problem might be around missed opportunities for the player. For the club, the paradigm is replacement and moving forward against significant cost and a player getting older.}

Kopforever, you don't think we've exceeded expectations this season? Did you expect this run? Did you expect at the beginning of the season that we'll be in any conversation for a quadruple in May? If your answer is yes, then I'm sorry. Clearly, 99.9% didn't expect this run. Mind you, no one has gone this far in a season still in the run for all titles, so yes, we've exceeded expectations. Doesn't mean anything if we don't finish up well, but no doubt we've been on a crazy run!

We need on focus on ourselves and not others. You can say Pep's petty or having a dig or whatever, but the facts are clear that we've only won one title in 32 years, so he's right there. No known pundit tipped us to win the league this season if I recall; only a couple thought we could manage a second position. Most thought our best was 4th. I'm proud we made the league run exciting, so if this is the best we get from it, we'll accept it and try again next season.
We're clearly a pain for Pep, so you can understand where he's coming from. If we manage to beat Real on May 28, that would mean another Champions league trophy in 3 years; everyone knows much Pep craves that particular silverware. He's not stupid; he's trying to make sure the attention is on his spectacular success in the league rather than our "lucky" adventures! [He's called winning the Champions league lucky in the past]
Let's just stay hungry and humble. Salah needs to stop talking too much and focus on getting this season wrapped up. Everyone knows we've more than exceeded expectations this season, so let's keep going!

I agree, but momentum is an important thing in the dying embers of this season, so your boys seem to have found a way right at the death!
Hopefully you'll survive and be better and stronger for it; learn the right lessons and recuit smartly going forward. All the best!


{Ed025's Note - if we do survive noski we need to learn from this and build again, with players that are proud to wear the shirt mate..

I'm just thinking about the timing of the news! This must be a major boost to the team ahead of an unprecedented 4 weeks in history! I was dreading Saturday's game, but after a piece of news like this, I imagine the boys will all be buzzing and that might just give us some extra juice against the surging Georgies! And who knows, maybe the weekend might further transform into dreamland should things go magical at Elland Road. Either way, I'm so glad, that Jurgen is a Red.

ED0666, do you think Sunday will be a walk in the park for the Reds? Everton is just 1 point away from being in the relegation zone. Don't you think that will have a bearing on Sunday?


{Ed0666's Note - They will lose resoundingly. They will defend and play on the counter because of their current predicament. If they come to play we’ll pick them off and if they defend we’ll open them up. I can’t see us scoring less than 3 to be honest. They’ll get someone sent off for them I have no doubts.
