Hi Eds

Just wondering if there has been any news regarding Bobby being fit for the final?



{Ed001's Note - the club are hopeful he will be fit.}

A question for Ed002 perhaps, apologies in advance if this is not the place to ask, but I am curious about something regarding TV deals.

As I understand it the Premier League negotiates the deals with the bidding broadcasters, be it Sky or whoever. My question is does the Premier League negotiate the rights with broadcasters in foreign countries, or is this a negotiation between the broadcasters in England and the broadcasters in the foreign country?

As a South African I am curious to know whether other broadcasters (I have just read that Amazon could potentially look to buy rights to some games) purchasing rights for matches could effect the amount of games shown here?


{Ed002's Note - The PL games for showing in the UK are "auctioned" by the Premier League. There are a couple of packages to go and it is very likely Amazon will buy one which will let them show 20 games via paid for streaming spread over two weekends or midweeks periods - so they will stream all of one week's game on two occasions as I recall.

SuperSport have the English language rights in sub-Saharan Africa - which they have done for many years. That won't change.}

good to see a fellow South African on here ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ.

This probably won't get posted as it will likely draw kind of abuse that has led to this post in the first place, but anyway this one's for you Ed002.

Now admittedly I missed the incident that has resulted in Ed002 no longer sharing transfer information with the rest of us. But I can pretty much gather the vegetables finally drove the man away.

So for starters I think it's fair to state that i have never heard Ed002 be boastful in any way about his connections within the game. He has only ever passed on what information he has and for that a lot of us are extremely grateful. He has not claimed to know everything, he has happily admitted deals get done without his knowledge, he is not an all knowing oracle, he is a man that has information that the majority of us would really like to share in.

I can't actually imagine what reason somebody would have for sending abuse to someone that is doing what I have described above, but then again I cannot imagine what reason someone would have for hurling objects at a bus. There is a very famous George Carlin quote about such people.

That said I can 100% understand Ed002's stance. Why would anybody give their time freely to be abused for doing nothing other than what they are supposed to do on this forum. He probably lasted longer than he should have to be honest, any longer and questions would have to be asked of his sanity

All the best to you and yours sir. Your information will be sorely missed but I am glad to see you are still with us.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks but I should make it clear it is not just about Liverpool.}

1.) 04 May 2018 17:13:19
Ed2 I have been reading this website for about 10 years now and posting off and on under different names over the years and I respect your decision. Website and Liverpool forum aside hope all is well your side.

{Ed002's Note - Everything is fine, thanks.}

2.) 04 May 2018 17:31:05
I do believe that Ed002 know's that the majority of the fan's on here really do have massive respect for him.

3.) 04 May 2018 17:31:38
Please donโ€™t go Ed002, you are one of the best :)

4.) 04 May 2018 19:41:55
Question for Ed002 please?
What can we has fans of you and the site do to get you to change your mind? The site just isn't the same without your input! But I do love the work all the Eds do (not a dig at them) Were richer as football fans for all the information you share and I really miss your knowledge but respect your decision.

{Ed002's Note - Right now I will ensure posts get through but I am not providing anything regarding transfers.}

5.) 04 May 2018 21:09:13
Ed002 - My post didn't get through because? (Just wondering, nothing more. I understand it is the Eds' prerogative to post or not post. If you wish to share then fine, if not, also just as fine ๐Ÿ‘) .

Question for ed002. ..................


{Ed002's Note - We are not going to go there. Sorry.}

1.) 04 Sep 2017 09:09:07
Understood. Thanks anyway.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

I know the market has gone mad recently but even so I cannot see the Ox being worth the reported 30 mil we have bid for him considering he has one year left on his contract.

He seems to have made it pretty clear that he would like to join us, so instead of getting fleeced by Arsenal, surely we could wait until he is free to move next summer and give the role he would have played this season to a couple of the promising youngsters we have?


1.) 30 Aug 2017 13:13:08
Should do a straight swap with sakho. That will solve a few problems.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 14:03:00
Herring, 40m for Ox is daylight robbery for a supremely limited player.

Hi Eds and Reds

With Rodgers job seemingly on the line and De Boer being touted as a possible replacement, I'd just like a few opinions on if he should be judged on his record domestically or in Europe.

While I appreciate he is dominating a relatively weaker league with less competition, he doesn't seem to get his team to "punch above their weight" in Europe.

The point I'm getting at is with Liverpool he would need to take on clubs with better squads, and after our spending spree over the past few years, probably with significantly less funds.

Is he capable of doing this? If yes why do you think so and if not who do you think could achieve this and why? Let's be realistic with our options here, no Guardiola or Shanks reincarnated.

Thanks guys and girls.


1.) 08 Dec 2014 07:07:30
I am more worried if a big name comes in ask for money?
He might not fancy some of our players, you can't blame him.

De-boer is the most realistic one for now.

2.) De Boer is a very smart man as he was a great player. He knew he wasn`t ready for the job when we came calling 2yrs ago and honorably declined. Now he is ready and like some on here including Ed01, there is the concern that he has dominated a poor league. In the end, he seems to fit the bill based on the framework the owners want to put in place. Can he hack it? We will have to wait and find out if in fact he is hired. I do know this, he has a lot more experience and has won more in his short career than BR has.

Perhaps he would be considered as a replacement for Can, considering we were planning on bringing in Keita and keeping Can. I also have not seen much of him, so perhaps someone with more insight could let us know what kind of player he is?


{Ed002's Note - He is not a replacement for Can. Liverpool saw him as an option for Keita. Other sides are keen - including Juventus, who want Can as well.}

Surely if we just contacted the club we wish to buy from first and placed a bid they, or the agent would then inform the player of our bid and if the player was so keen to join us as many say VVD is then we could move along with some civil negotiations. Whereas our current method of doing things achieves the same result of the player knowing of our interest but gets the selling clubs back up, resulting in them telling us to pay over the odds or get bent. This just seems like sheer stupidity to me.

This has to be an Ed's kryptonite. Random name to replace a player we need not replace. Swap deal including another random name you admittedly know nothing about. Just why?

Ed, they're obviously all smoke screens for a glorious Shelvey return.

Ed02, I was wondering if you might be inclined to give some insight as to what would make a club show an interest in a player and then drop it only 6 months later?

It seems odd that 6 months ago we were ready to buy a player and now no longer want to? Have other preferred targets become available?


{Ed002's Note - Price is always a driver, the desire of a player to move, interest in other players (particularly given the summer has a lot more options available). Liverpool has been looking to other options - they might end up going for Konoplyanka again.}

He seems like he has talent, but if it's true that he has been so scarred that he has not left his room for 4 days then it sounds like he is sulking and probably lacks the mentality to make it to the very top.

Also interesting that his small salary was mentioned multiple times. I am sure his agent would like a new contract and a couple of bucks in his back pocket.

Take the best offer available and move on.

It's quite shocking how much more we have paid than the club that has paid the second most.


{Ed002's Note - It was expected, as it was for the season before. But I agree it should be much better controlled.}

Perhaps a mandatory IQ test should be presented on the site before being allowed to post.

I am a long time reader, however my posts are very few and far between. I felt compelled to log in and second this thread though. I always stop and read when I see an MK Scouser post, I really enjoy your posts Adam. Your articles are also fantastic. Hopefully you're just taking a break and will return when the dust has settled. The site will be poorer for not having your frequent input. All the best mate.
