HI Ed. there was lot of smoke over the last couple of months which turned out to be fire regarding Diaz. similarly with Bellingham. Will he now be the no.1 summer transfer.

I'm aware the cost would be £90m and LFC are skint but with outgoings fees/ wages. do you think a deal is likely to be struck.


{Ed002's Note - Jude Bellingham (CM) Manchester United and Chelsea were keen before he moved to Germany and will be interested again when he is made available for sale – and expect interest from Manchester City and potentially Liverpool as well. Dortmund will not be forced in to selling him next year and will seek a huge fee (more than €£90M) when he is sold.}

1.) 31 Jan 2022 11:28:11
cheers ed. i think the eye of klopp should definately be in a midfield player. milner will go to leeds. keita is useless. thiago is a crock. jones not good enough IMO.

2.) 31 Jan 2022 12:01:26
Why is Jones always written off?

3.) 31 Jan 2022 12:07:06
Phillips from Leeds or bissouma I reckon we will end up with …and I will be happy with either 😉.

4.) 31 Jan 2022 12:09:12
Harsh on Jones mate. But I do agree we need a midfielder, only one though.

5.) 31 Jan 2022 13:12:55
Jones is a perfect ManCity type player - they have a stack of them and he’s pretty much our only one - we need to keep him and play regularly for that player with a bit of guile.



17 Dec 2021 13:48:34
Hi Ed. Kacper Kozłowski has been linked apparently trying to steal him ahead of brighton for £10m with jan loan back option as they are trying to win league. Any news he looks good but dives/ roles about an awful lot.


{Ed002's Note - Kacper Kozlowski (AM) Szczecin have denied that an agreement is already in place with Bayer Leverkusen although an ex-player has been allowed to advise the youngster on what is best moving forward. Bayer Leverkusen are smart and replaced Havertz with Wirtz and perhaps KK is next in line. The Red Bull group will make a proposal to take him in to the fold in the summer at RBS or RBL who are looking for a Dani Olmo replacement. A number of English sides have sent scouts to watch him with Brighton best placed to challenge Bayer Leverkusen.}

1.) 17 Dec 2021 14:11:26
Looking for a dani olmo replacement, any idea where he will be going?



21 Sep 2020 15:05:48
Parish (Palace chairman) has just rubbishd the brewster. rumours on talk sport.


1.) 21 Sep 2020 15:46:40
Sly trying to funnel some money to Sky Bet again no doubt.

2.) 21 Sep 2020 15:48:04
Talksport are owned by the same media group that owns the S*n. Why are you listening to that rubbish?

3.) 21 Sep 2020 16:35:10
I suppose you don't watch sky sports either.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 18:24:03

5.) 21 Sep 2020 20:48:37
heard from other sources this is accurate, offer was made.

6.) 22 Sep 2020 07:17:28
I don’t believe palace have made that bid. They outlay £25m the the lad becomes a premier league star but they only make £12m on him seems a bit of a stretch.

7.) 22 Sep 2020 10:31:22
Exactly grino, as soon as I heard about the buy black clause figure I knew it was BS. Never in a million years is this true.

8.) 22 Sep 2020 10:48:12
It may be a strategy not to drive up the price.

9.) 22 Sep 2020 12:01:47
Why don't you think its true? Liverpool had a buy back clause when Ibe left. He flopped so it wasn't excersized and he's on his way out to Derby.



13 Jul 2020 15:20:43
Any truth in lovren contract being extended.
Pretty much ends all this new cb talk.


1.) 13 Jul 2020 15:45:09
I read that if he not sold this summer they will activate the year extension.

2.) 13 Jul 2020 17:11:41
Pretty sure its just to bump up his price this summer.



16 Jan 2020 11:09:18
Klopp going to have to look at quality back up for next season. AFCON Cup set for Jan 2021. Mane. Salah will be out assuming still there.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 12:45:13
I agree it is going to be very disruptive to our season but we won’t and can’t bring in expensive back up players just fir 3weeks cover.

What’s your thoughts on this ed001? It’s far from ideal ate ain’t it.

{Ed001's Note - we should be fine, always managed in the past and it is only a few weeks. You just get on with it and we have plenty of players to cover.}

2.) 16 Jan 2020 13:07:07
Kai can play up front as well as MF.

3.) 16 Jan 2020 13:10:35
Exactly Ed002, plus might have an extra option in there to cover 🤔.

4.) 16 Jan 2020 21:54:22
We have bought Minamino and we already have Origi who we know can do a job along with Shaq. Maybe Harvey Elliott can come in and take his chance. Overall I’m not panicking too much yet.

5.) 16 Jan 2020 22:58:10
We have Origi, Bobby, Taki and Shaq for those weeks and maybe Brewster? Ox can play up front as well there is no need to panic, plus we may have another 17 point gap at the top of the league as well!

6.) 17 Jan 2020 06:53:35
Naby keita too will be missing.

7.) 17 Jan 2020 09:35:39
Nabys always missing.

8.) 17 Jan 2020 09:37:46
Standard that though Har_red92 👍.

9.) 17 Jan 2020 09:46:13
Isn't he always Har_red92.

10.) 17 Jan 2020 10:06:01
Haha very true.

11.) 17 Jan 2020 17:48:26
Naby Keita has enjoyed the longest "honeymoon" in football history. Been missing for a year and a half and nobody says a word.

12.) 17 Jan 2020 19:29:55
ArAy1969, you seem to be forgetting the 49 games he has played in for Liverpool in that period. Or maybe you just have an agenda.

{Ed025's Note - why thunderbird? are you telling us that your happy with naby,s contributions since he came?

13.) 17 Jan 2020 20:43:23
I wouldn’t say that I’m unhappy, when he’s played he been pretty good, injures happen. I certainly wouldn’t say that he’s been ‘missing’ for a year and a half.

14.) 17 Jan 2020 21:10:43
People it's 2021. With respect, let's focus on the now and next. ⚽️✌.

15.) 17 Jan 2020 23:55:02
I agree with that Thunderbird. It’s like when everything’s going well people have to find something or someone to moan about. Obviously rival fans will grab on to any possible criticism they can and due to his injuries he’s an easy target.
He cost less than Fred and Pogba and the same as Richarlison and even with the injuries I know who I’d prefer to have.
The guy is a class act and all the naysayers will be eating their words before long and I hope they choke on them.

16.) 17 Jan 2020 15:51:01
Origi and shaq 1st team for possible six weeks. After xmas. without injuries and possible man city top 4 fixture. I think this will definitely force his hand and buy CF. 1 out not both Firmino can't score enough.

17.) 18 Jan 2020 21:19:53
Thunderbird. Of course, I unequivocally have an agenda. It's called being "a club supporter who doesn't hesitate to voice his displeasure at players on whom high expectations have been placed, are paid very well and yet are unable to put in a regular shift throughout a season".

I admire your ability to fish for and spit out meaningless statistics, from the internet. But Naby Keita is an underperformer since day one, and/ or really likes the decor in the physio room and therefore spends a lot of time there. I clapped during those few games where he excelled, but that's not enough for me to say he deserves to keep that valuable squad place he is holding. The team needs 17-18 players who can be absolutely trusted, be relied on, and be dependant on, to be at the height, and stay at the height, we are on. This man is not there most of the time, and yet he's holding one of those 17-18 top squad places.

It's like sitting around for approximately 2 hours for a whale to come up. Once it comes up for air for around 10 seconds, you scream "wow" and then it's gone down again. And you wait for another 2 hours again. This turns some people on. Fine. It doesn't work for me. I guess I'm a naysayer then.

18.) 20 Jan 2020 23:55:34
I'm still optimistic with keita, I'd feel different if he's been playing poor for last 18 months but it's just constant injury setbacks is hurting him and his form has been impressive when you consider he's always been playing without any rhythm as yet. His previous injury history was never an issue so I think it's still likely he can overcome and play consistently. Henderson was suffering like keita with niggles for about 2 years at similar age and OX too. The talent is there and he's shown he has it. Last summer his country ruined his rehab and he never got the chance to recover and get up to speed in pre season. He deserves more time as he's still young and only injury has stopped him flourishing.

{Ed025's Note - its not only the injuries though is it har?, not learned the language and a bit of a loner as well...does he really deserve more time?..

19.) 21 Jan 2020 04:58:12
I don't know about the loner issue but allison and firmino also aren't speaking English so as much as it is frustrating I'm not going to use that as a reason to write him off. Tevez spent years not speaking English, took aguero ages too but if he can do his talking on the field we won't care, . I just want to see him have a spell where he's fit and playing regularly before I give up on him because i know there's a great midfielder in there. I'm hoping it can fall into place for him, remember OX spent 5 years like this at arsenal before finding his spark. Klopp will I'm sure know exactly what direction keitas career is heading and I guess in the summer we might find out if we have belief or not in him to succeed.

20.) 21 Jan 2020 14:41:19
Look at that mug Rooney, he could barely speak English and did ok 😂.

Ed. Are we now at max non homegrown. With Wilson now gone and nat possibly on the way. If we don't sell shaq and origi. We can't bring any non in. If we sell nat and shaq. Then are we still at a standstill. Do we have wiggle room or am I correct.


{Ed002's Note - You can easily check.}

1.) 26 Jul 2021 01:24:10
This may be a silly question, but be gentle Eds, but can we just not register a non home grown in the our prem squad and still make a signing.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to meet the quota or have a reduced squad again.}

2.) 26 Jul 2021 22:21:24
ok thank you for the reply.



20 Apr 2021 20:06:58
Hi ed. What is lfc debt? every table shows no info released for this year. Tottenham in deep trouble at 600m. . and utd 500m. Surely if its not too high they can be bought out. Do you think the dubai consortium will now come in. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Spurs debt reflects the stadium. Liverpool have delayed their accounts but have been building debt by not buying players etc..}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 20:30:19
You used to tease us with the ‘pint of wallop, dead and dying pit ponies on cobbled streets’ once upon a time Ed002 because we were against the European super league back in the day?

{Ed002's Note - You won’t find a post of me doing that. Liverpool have always been interested but the “elite” clubs did not involve Liverpool - and they are meeting against tomorrow.}

2.) 20 Apr 2021 20:51:32
Well, at best, the geniuses in Boston have provided a litmus test for all the others, of what to do, what not to do and how to go about doing it. Will turn out to have been a very heavy price to pay.

3.) 20 Apr 2021 20:48:13
Do you now think ed if the "elite" clubs can come to some sort of framework, and get the approval of UEFA and FIFA and domestic leagues, that LFC would be left out of it completely after what they have orchestrated recently?!

{Ed002's Note - One club has resigned from the group this evening and the feeling is that the damage this is done is significant - they meet tomorrow.}



28 Sep 2020 23:36:27
Interesting to hear klopp say jota been on his list for a few years. I sense its just confidence boosting or we really ain't got a clue who he wants.


{Ed0666's Note - does it matter mate?

1.) 29 Sep 2020 00:10:22
No, I believe it. Its his job, probably knows something about rvrty player in every top team. Jota really stood out for me at wolves. It was him Neves and Jiminez imo.

2.) 29 Sep 2020 00:34:35
It doesn't matter a Jot, Ed0666 mate. ;)

3.) 29 Sep 2020 05:34:08
Liverpool as a club must scout dozens of players every season, I’m sure Jota was on the radar of most of the top clubs.

4.) 29 Sep 2020 08:44:46
OP according to Ljinders, he played against Jota during his time in Portugal so better believe that if Pep was that high on Jota years ago, Klopp was already aware and clearly impressed with him way before this season.



02 Sep 2020 12:11:10
Hi ed. please can you shed some light on recent rumours. how is it a global, cup winning, small spending (compared to manu etc) have no cash. Whereas man city can bid 623m for messi under FFP. I really do lack an idea on how FFP is supposed to work. even chelsea spent 50m on pulisic whilst being tranfer banned lfc only bought minimino. Yet still have more cash.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained over and over the reason that Liverpool don't have the money to spend like other clubs do. Manchester City have not "bid £623M for Messi. Chelsea purchased Pulisic before any ban and he was on loan at Dortmund. If Liverpool want to do what Chelsea have done, then they can. Simply raise funds through sales.}

1.) 02 Sep 2020 12:27:09
Chelsea also has a very dedicated owner unlike investors at LFC: Roman's motive is not to sell the club for a profit. He simply loves Chelsea FC. would keep the club with him till the end of the world.
Ed02 said some time back both Chelsea and City work on a different model compared to what Liverpool operates (End season payments) .
If anything we need to adapt the model at Chelsea. Have you seen their kit? the number of sponsors label on their shirt is Tripple to what we have.
But that being said I agree the only way to sustain the success in the most demanding league in the world is to throw money and upgrade the squad year after year.

2.) 02 Sep 2020 12:34:32
Firstly I don’t want Messi at Liverpool

{Ed002's Note - WRONG PAGE.}

3.) 02 Sep 2020 12:45:40
I agree with you Tyrion. Sadly, Chelsea may have one of the last owners who bought simply for the love of the club. those days are long passed unfortunately. Maybe I'm wrong.

4.) 02 Sep 2020 13:12:05
Ed I think you have caps lock on.

5.) 02 Sep 2020 13:36:39
Riomazy, (ed002 may correct me if I am (highly likley wrong), I haven't read everything)

however from what I can gather in simple terms

1. we spent money we didn't actually have, based on guestimated future income covering the outgoings
(forget all the bollocks you hear in the press about how much money we got for Coutinho etc. )
2. other clubs have simply managed their finances better than us
3. C.V. has had a massive impact on the finances of all clubs, and we can't keep spending money we don't have.

6.) 02 Sep 2020 14:26:14
Tyrionn how can you say fsg are not dedicated. new training complex, extended anfield and have put millions into transfers aswell. they didn't get it right at the start but have brought the club forward in nearly everyway.

7.) 02 Sep 2020 15:15:58
They have invested the money the club has generated.

8.) 02 Sep 2020 16:57:25
Klopp brought the club forward, without him the team wouldn't be as good as they are, FSG have got lucky with him and haven't invested millions in transfers at all, crazy we don't have money for Thiago but not going over old news.

9.) 02 Sep 2020 18:05:52
Same ol stuff, diff day. Lancasterred, and who hired Klopp to do what he has done? They got lucky. You think you can b as successful a billionaire as these guys by being lucky? The whole FSG witch hunt I do stale, it is becoming nauseating and embarrassing to hear. Change the record cos it is severely scratched.

10.) 02 Sep 2020 18:11:56
TY, and what is wrong with that? Isn’t that how a real business should run as in reinvesting what you earn? The model is the model and it keeps us safe from facing liquidation again or did you forget all of that? If you don’t like the FSG model then make them an offer they can’t refuse and buy the club and then you can create your own model as a dedicated owner like Roman.

One problem, tho. Something called FFP that you are going to have to deal with cos the rules prevent you from filling financial holes with personal cash.

11.) 04 Sep 2020 20:10:55
Yes the money the club has generated through sponsorship etc, which they have improved greatly, don't forget the 2 muppets who were in beforehand spending and leveraging what they could and had us hours from administration.



28 Jul 2020 18:49:15
Hi Ed. asked this a while back. do you see us going for Sarr as he'll be cheap.


{Ed002's Note - I didn't know he would be cheap. If he wishes to spend his time playing and on the bench at Liverpool maybe.}

1.) 29 Jul 2020 07:39:19
If we're looking at relegated clubs, we should looking for Canaries going cheap or Cherries ripe for picking.

{Ed025's Note - your on fire this morning rigsby...3 weetabix?.. :)

2.) 29 Jul 2020 07:46:49
Sarr won’t be cheap and won’t want to sit on the bench.

3.) 29 Jul 2020 09:09:41
Rigsby - I was told those Cherries are currently quite sour - maybe let's leave Solanke where he is.

4.) 29 Jul 2020 00:08:34
I'm sure Robertson thought moving to us he would be a bench warmer Ed002. Surely as a footballer you want to go to the best clubs and show you can make it and not just be that squad player?

{Ed002's Note - The reason it makes little sense to me is: (1) Players want as much time on the field as possible. (2) Clubs with no money like Liverpool should not be looking at spending £30M on a reserve. (3) The owners of Watford will ceratinly not give any discount to Liverpool due to the previous lack of respect shown to them. (4) He would be yet another player disappearing off to the AFCON with the very players he is meant to be providing cover for - or are Liverpool really that stupid?}

5.) 29 Jul 2020 12:24:04
I thought this thread was about Malang Sarr for a second, was momentarily shocked the free agent would be asking for a signing fee of £30m!

6.) 29 Jul 2020 08:04:50
That's it, Ed025; and an early night. But not in the way that it used to mean.

{Ed025's Note - i remember them early nights myself rigsby, just, i have given up on that lark now mate...give me a bacon butty any day..

Look I get it that Southampton want £50m but if LFC offered £41m surely they would take it.

1: City can have him for £40m next year
2: If no one offers £50m then a year in the championship will see his value plummet.
3: he could get injured / form dips.

Why did FSG turn down a £3b middle east bid? what it to low or were they not interested in selling?
It appears they are now so can we assume another bid from thr middle east. Redbird is being heavily linked but as they invest other money. I can't see them forking out for players. Confused.


{Ed002's Note - All these bids don’t exist.}

jotas form has dipped because of the arrival of Diaz. he's been moved outside and mane inside. He can't play on wing put him CF and he scores.
Most headed goals this season,
15 league. 1 less than MANE
4 assists. 2 more than MANE

and Mane is awesome.

Agree. Which is why werner saga was such a disappointment. I think he could have played through the middle as he's technically good as well
as pacey. bobbys a purple patch player that never takes his 50.50 chances. it was no surprise he fluffed his shot against city and I immediately thought werner would have buried that. 0 goals at home in this team.
