Ed02, I noticed on here that you mentioned on here Newcastle were interested in Grenier(spelling?). After watching Lyon play on a few occasions he and lacazette have impressed me. Have any other teams showed interest in these players and would they be players that would interest Liverpool?


{Ed002's Note - Yes there has ben interest in Grenier in the past - both Chelsea and Arsenal enquired. There is no interest from Liverpool.}

Ed01, where do you think sturridge career with us went wrong? It's not just down to injuries alone As he looks as though he has no interest on the pitch and no desire to play football. What's his lifestyle like? Does he have other interests that he'd rather pursue or is it, he just isn't happy at Liverpool anymore? Whatever it is, for the few seasons he was immense for us I'd like to wish him well in wherever he ends up. I know you might not be able to answer all of it but would like to hear yours and other peoples views on this.


{Ed001's Note - his lifestyle is mostly fine, he doesn't drink alcohol, trains well but he struggles with pain. Someone who knew his uncle well told me that the family suffer with a inherited degenerative knee condition that caused them problems, no idea if that is correct or not though. I don't know any more than that, but I do know he struggles a lot with injuries which stopped him moving freely and caused more niggling injuries as he tried to alter his movement.

If I was to say from what I have seen of him, I would say it was similar to Owen personally. He was explosive and once injuries hit explosive muscle tissue and causes scarring it is never the same. Certainly he moves like a player who has lost that explosive acceleration and is afraid to just go like he used to. Scar tissue is less pliable and so tends to cause more injury problems as the rest of the fibres are forced to stretch further that previously.}

Surely by this stage, elite footballers would be getting stem cells injected into injuries or are they banned in the UK Ed?

{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}

Kylian Mbappe wants to leave PSG this summer! 👀
Just saying!

3.) 05 Jun 2019 15:07:37
They all want to leave. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are all rebuilding. It's a rush to see who gets the lottery.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 19:52:13
Griezman Mbappe or Ousman Dembele would improve or forward line.
If they were possible additions I would take them.
However I trust in the transfer committee judgement.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 19:28:00
Not Griezmann for me, Langland. The guy is TOO full of himself and is really not as good as his moth let's us know he is.



14 Jan 2019 16:32:00
What's everyone's on Wilson for next season?

Personally I'd like to see him go back out on loan to either another team you will likely me in the mix of it in the championship or better still if he'd be guaranteed playing time then a team in the premiership. For me he needs playing time to develop and if he comes back to us next season he might get two cup games before we're knocked out and the odd run out. Can't see the benefit of him coming back to us, what's everyone's else's view? Also ed02 what would you like to see as I think as a club we've been guilty of stagnating youngsters careers.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 17:11:05
Personally I would love him to be ready for our squad next season, he gives us an option off the bench for salah or mane without spending a fortune. However I will say that all I have seen of him is goals and highlights so perhaps it will be too soon. I trust the club will give him pre-season and decide if he is ready for the step up or if he would benefit more from regular games.
First team experience us important but he could be learning from salah if he was in training week in week out.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 17:47:33
He has played well in a good Championship side. Personally I would sell him, hopefully to a good Championship or low Premier League team and let him carry on with his career in the hope he progresses. For me he is way off the level for a team like Liverpool. He is young and he needs to play, no point waiting, in the hope that he gets a chance at LFC that, for me won't come.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 17:50:55
Been a standout player at Derby and youth level, he can cover the wing and play CAM, I'd like him in the squad. Particularly if any of the front three get injured and Shaqiri needs to fill in, he'll be a great option from the bench. Its difficult to buy players who know they won't start, why bother forking the money out when Harry has impressed at both Hull and Derby.

4.) 14 Jan 2019 18:32:19
Eamonsf, because if Wilson is waiting for one of the front 3 to get injured and then Shaqiri to need a rest, he will waste his career in our reserves. I’d say only bring him in if he’s going to get actual minutes and Klopp sees him as a proper 1st team player.

5.) 14 Jan 2019 18:46:17
I would love for him to be a squad player mate and grow into a first team role as the others age. But the challenge is that Salah and Shaqiri are both left footed and play off the right inside. If he was right footed and could cover for Mane it would be a different story!

6.) 14 Jan 2019 18:50:41
The longer he spends with Frank lampard the less chance we have of getting him back. If Derby get promoted then they will put in a bid for him imo, and it'll be hard for the lad to refuse.

I'd like to see him back in the first team next season. We haven't successfully brought through an attacking youngster for a long time, it used to be our bread and butter.

I hope Wilson, Duncan and brewster all fill spaces left by lallana, origi and sturridge. That said I would also like to see us buy a senior CF if we sell sturridge.

7.) 14 Jan 2019 18:54:57
The point I was making was that he'd be of particular importance if there was an injury, not that an injury was the only way he'd get game time. The squad will need to be rotated regularly, especially if we go further in the english cup competitions, there were those who said Shaqiri wouldn't get game time.

You never know how a young player will adapt, he may raise his game he may not. If he's good enough, he'll get game time and could even usurp shaqiri's position in the squad if not he can be moved on. My point is more that he deserves the opportunity to see how he does, given his successful loans.

8.) 14 Jan 2019 19:47:41
Wilson will get his chance in preseason to stake his claim for a squad position at LFC. The prob is as someone said, is that if Derby get promoted, a decision would have to be made whether he should fight for a squad position at LFC or go to Derby (loan or full transfer) where he will have will play every week in the PL at least for one season. At that point, it will be up to Klopp to either keep him (and give him certain guaranties of sufficient game time) or just let him go fulfill his career dreams elsewhere. We shall see.

9.) 14 Jan 2019 20:11:46
Danny ward wasn’t signed permanently when Huddersfield were promoted.

10.) 14 Jan 2019 20:59:15
I posted about this earlier, they're all Derby or Forest where i live, he's not playing as well as you might think, yes he's scored the obvious worldies but his overall game has been poor and that's come from season ticket holders, he's lightweight and needs to get stronger and apparently his tracking back isn't the best, he's in the best place to learn and grow, leave him where he is and let him learn his trade.

11.) 14 Jan 2019 22:16:13
Pegleg, if you read my post, you will see that I said Wilson could be signed or loaned by Derby. Also, point of correction. Hudd did not sign Ward BUT wanted to have him on loan and Klopp vetoed it.

12.) 15 Jan 2019 00:10:59
I see no reason why Wilson couldn’t take the place of Lallana in the squad. Some minutes here and there and cup games and decent cover at attacking mid and in the wing. If he’s as good as we all hope he is, he will prove it as Shaqiri has done. I love the kid and really think he and Brewster could join Trent as very good squad and first 11 players.

13.) 15 Jan 2019 03:42:06
Well said.
Plays similarly to lallana with vision passes but has better shots at goal!

{Ed001's Note - you make him sound crap. He is nothing like Lallana, he doesn't take 55 touches when 1 will do or fart about doing Cruyff turn after Cruyff turn when there is no one within 50 yards of him.}

14.) 15 Jan 2019 06:13:42
I think it's time for Mr. Wilson to come back home, in the summer, and either make a squad place for himself on a permanent basis or move on to greener pastures.

15.) 15 Jan 2019 07:03:51
Wont be a popular opinion but his stock his high, we could sell him. I do not see a path for him in our team. It would be disappointing if we waste his career. Also i don't see him in the midfield or the front three. he lies in between both and that might no suit us or him much. I think he can be moved. Him and Kent can be sold for decent monies. Not much of chance will come their way.

16.) 15 Jan 2019 12:10:39
I like the lad but I still don’t think he’s ready. I think he’d barely get a look in next year. We need to be improving every season as our competitors will be. Could you see him pushing for a spot at Chelsea, City or Spurs next year? If the answer if no the he won’t be pushing for a spot in our team .

17.) 15 Jan 2019 12:48:23
And what about the forgotten lad Woodburn? He may not be sharp enough for the blades ;) but we all know what a talent he is.

18.) 15 Jan 2019 13:41:41
Although we generally set up 433, there is a place for a player who can play between the mid and attack. Klopp almost signed fekir remember. Wilson can play in any of the 6 mid/ attack positions. That's an asset. We have to keep him.

19.) 15 Jan 2019 13:43:15
I’d definitely keep Wilson in the squad. Knows where the goal is and would bring something different to the team.

20.) 15 Jan 2019 19:41:06
I think it was macca making this point about quality depth, and if we had it then klopp would probably rotate more. Like city have 6 genuine starting calibre players in the attacking positions and make it work.

So regards Wilson, if he ia good enough to be rotated then itd make sense to keep him. If not, and he is literally there for cup games or injuries then imo we should loan him until he is of the required level or sell him.



11 Jul 2018 09:57:04
Ed02,what would you say would be the best way forward regarding the keeper situation? Obviously some transfers don't work out and others need time to establish themselves. However it looks obvious that Karius isn't ready to be first choice regardless of what klopp has said, yes it's not exceptable what some so called fans have said but surely we have the right to voice concerns without getting personal or wishing the bloke dead. Me personally if he's prepared to work and wait for the number one spot I'm happy for him to do that, it's unfortunate but we all make mistakes it's just goalkeeping mistakes tend to cost games. I think we're only a couple of signings away from being serious title challengers however a goalkeeper is one of them.


{Ed002's Note - I am surprised any GKs are staying. Bogdan has gone on loan; Danny Ward must have been told something or should be looking to get his career back on track; Mignolet will move on unless Liverpool price him out of the market. As I have explained, I woul;d have thought that the damage had been done to pretty much destroy Karius by the fans, and it looks like wth the latest issues following a mistake in a friendly would prove that to everyone involved. Klopp has made mistake after mistake regarding the goalkeepers and will be looking for at least one still. I staill expect at least one goalkeeper to arrive.}

1.) 11 Jul 2018 13:22:33
Oh, and the fans are still at it, Ed02 after he made a mistake (one I have seen MANY gk's make) in a friendly. The destruction is STILL in full flow.



21 May 2018 14:26:32
Can I just say without ed02 input into transfers this is going to be a frustratingly crap window. Can completely understand why you're taking this stance but would just like you to know some of us actually appreciate the time you give up to share information with us. That can also be said about the other Ed's but ed02 transfer information is second to none and a select few have spoilt it for the majority and I for one would like to sarcastically thank them for the idiots that they are!


1.) 21 May 2018 15:19:20
Well said, I'd say 95% of the people on here value what the eds say. The other 5% just like ruining things for other people.

2.) 21 May 2018 15:22:16
Unfortunately pegleg there are way to many keyboard warriors in the world. I have never known a site like this one. Unbelievable resource for past present and future Liverpool information.
I remember Empire of the kop. A website with information which you had to pay for and the info was shocking to say the least.
This site is free of charge. Open to all persons to view and wealth of information but yet small minded idiots decide to be abusive when they don’t get the answer they want.
Can imagine there marital state when they don’t get the dinner they asked for or the other half says no when they want to stay in the pub. It’s truly embarrassing.

To all the Ed’s that do input on this site. Please take my gratitude and thanks for all you do.
An absolute pleasure to have you on board and I have been a very long time reader.

YNWA Ed’s.

3.) 21 May 2018 15:37:12
Gazza's ALL the Ed's know that it's only a very small minority of knuckle draggers that piss them off. The rest of us non-knuckle draggers pay homage to the Ed's twice a day during the week and four time's at the weekend.

4.) 21 May 2018 17:01:36
How you got 4 dislikes is beyond me, your correct in everything you say mate. Shame some people ruin it for the rest of us. Let's hope Ed2 can return in the future with reliable transfer info, it was such a kind act before, we can only hope we see it again but completely understand if we don't. I wouldn't.

5.) 21 May 2018 18:11:15
Salad, the dislikes are probably from the muppets causing the problems for the rest of us by pissing the Ed’s off. I sincerely hope Ed002 changes his mind and gives us transfer info as it keeps me sane!

Maybe the Ed’s could just ban the idiots so it doesn’t ruin it for the rest of us? (Please 🙏)



30 Aug 2017 15:54:37
Ed01 I'd be interested to hear your take on AOC, where you think he'd fit in the team, who'd make way or suffer and if you think he's value for money. Personally I don't see him anymore than a squad player and at the money quoted I'd rather we spent it elsewhere but obviously klopp rates him and at the end of the day that's what it will come down too.


{Ed001's Note - utility and back up.}

Epic potato, have you watched Mignolet? He’s nowhere near good enough and is a mistake waiting to happen.

Fair point ed2, however I’ve no jealousy towards Man City. I just can’t see how teams can beat them with the strength and depth that their squad have, something I respect them for.

How is the squad stronger? We’ve added a couple of kids, we pretty much have the same squad as last year when we fielded an embarrassingly weak squad against wolves. Add to that Lovren may leave still, I don’t see where we have a stronger squad? Arguably we have the second best first eleven in the league but in my opinion we’ve missed out on strengthening the squad and pushing on this season. I just hope it doesn’t bite us on the arse.

Klopp has never competed for all the cups since he’s been here so why start now?

I’m with you ed25, I honestly don’t think he’d get in the Everton team.


{Ed025's Note - he would,nt even get on our bench pegleg...and we are desperate for a forward mate..

Salah you make me laugh, Lallana is a far better player than Origi who you’re happy to keep. Yet me personally think we can upgrade on both. Although I’d happily keep Lallana over Origi as I think he can offer more coming off the bench. I know they play different positions.

05 Jun 2019 15:40:57
Pino35 to be fair I think Origi has stepped up when needed and we wouldn’t of won the champions league without him. However I don’t think he’s the grade we need, can he be improved on? Absolutely. Like I said earlier ask yourself does he get into any of the other top six teams? For me the answer is no, it’s no good having a player at this level to fill the squad you need players to push for their place and if one of our front three were out for a long period do he fill you with confidence to take one of the their places?
