Hi Ed, any interest in 19 year old Marcos Leonardo from Brazil?


{Ed002's Note - Marcos Leonardo (F) Still a little raw and needs to stop falling over so easily, but talented. Wants to move to the PL at some point. He will do well if he bides his time. Santos have said that clubs from Europe have sent scouts to watch him ancluding a very-high end scout/ex-PL player which hints at two of the clubs being Manchester United and Liverpool, to watch the player.}

1.) 31 Jul 2022 13:57:21
Who are the high level scouts in Europe, Eds?

Do they freelance, I thought clubs have their own scouts, or is it a bit of both?


{Ed002's Note - There are scouts who are employed by clubs, scouts who freelance and scouts who are specialists in certain regions. So, for example Liverpool have a scout who just deals with Iberia and one who does Croatia, Italy and Switzerland. In Brazil they have an unusual situation. But they do use others as needs be.}

I do enjoy your often cryptic answers Ed002. Are you able to elaborate on the ‘unusual situation’ with our scouting in Brazil? It sounds intriguing.

{Ed002's Note - I would rather not.}



12 Oct 2021 01:45:26
Morning Ed’s, apologies if I have missed this, would Ousmane Dembele be a player we would be interested in?


{Ed002's Note - Klopp still has an interest in the likes of Dembele and Traore.}

1.) 12 Oct 2021 13:32:06
It’s baffling why Klopp has got the klipperty’s for these two. Traore has absolutely no end product and Dembele is possibly the most injury prone footballer in living history (he’s actually out with injury at the moment with no return date pencilled in), and that is notwithstanding his “issues”. Disappointing and underwhelming are understatements.

2.) 12 Oct 2021 16:47:58
Totally baffling how a manager with one of the best reputations in world football for developing talent would maybe see something in players that others wouldn't.
But hey, we all know better than Klopp right?
I'll back Klopp's judgement every single time.

That said, simply due to finances I don't think anyone will be worrying about seeing any of those 2 in Liverpool red anytime soon.

3.) 12 Oct 2021 16:56:27
Is Dembele the player Liverpool have been in contact with Barcelona about?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have not spoken with Barcelona about the player but have bneen talking to his agent about the possibilty of a pre-contract in January and taking him as a Free Agent in the summer.}

4.) 12 Oct 2021 19:33:46
Blackpool here we go 😂.

5.) 12 Oct 2021 19:55:27
Was Dembele's agent or the player himself interested, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement at the moment.}

6.) 12 Oct 2021 20:32:49
Well, I guess Klopp is really interested in Dembele then. We shall see.

7.) 12 Oct 2021 21:25:31
Do liverpool actually HAVE to talk to Barcelona if they are trying for a pre-contract agreement in January? Surely it would be nothing to do with Barca.

8.) 13 Oct 2021 03:26:12
Totally agree Flash, except for the last bit - there will be lots of worried people in the transfer window in January 😁😉.

9.) 13 Oct 2021 07:08:09
Ed002 do you think we are looking at Dembele to add to our front line or to replace Salah?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool cannot simply add players. Space needs to be made.}

10.) 13 Oct 2021 10:41:36
Why would a player being signed on more than likely a free transfer mean Salah has to go?

11.) 13 Oct 2021 14:17:03
Probably the fact he’s going to be asking for northwards of £300’000 a week, a huge signing on fee and then there’s extortionate agents fees too, Jadon. All for a player who’s only capable of being fit for about 33% of games a season and absolutely lacks any professionalism or semblance of hard work.

That would imply someone’s going to have to leave to accommodate that. To my mind it would be illogical to sell either of Mane or Salah and bring in Dembele. He’s not fit to clean their boots much less replace either of them.

12.) 13 Oct 2021 15:00:37
Jesus, when were scared of our life and hitting accountant mode over signing a free transfer we might aswell give up.

13.) 13 Oct 2021 19:01:26
Jadon, if he was a model professional and actually able to start games he’d be worth it. But he’s not a model professional, nor is he physically fit and to be honest, he’s just not all that good (he’s as mediocre as Anthony Martial), so he’s not worth the money, the time or the effort.

It is a fact that unlike City, United and Chelsea, we can’t afford to make mistakes in the transfer market, particularly now we’ve got Newcastle and their bottomless pit of blood money to compete against for signings. We’d be better off going for Sarr, as he’s not injury prone, far better attitude on and off the pitch, premier league proven, he’s ready to step up a level, plus he can play more than 20 games a season without pulling a hammy tying his laces, which is far more than Dembele can manage. All of which make him better value for money even having to pay a transfer fee.

14.) 13 Oct 2021 19:10:41
Flash, one very minor point. Klopp didn’t want Salah, he literally had to be persuaded by the Dave Fallows and Michael Edwards that Salah was a better bet than the player Klopp wanted, a certain Julian Brandt. Brandt has pretty much done nothing at Dortmund. As for Salah, can’t recall how he got on? Heard he’s been somewhat of a success? Klopp does get it wrong you know, he’s only human. And for my money, he’s wrong on both Dembele and Traore.

15.) 13 Oct 2021 19:43:54
If you claim to know more than Klopp and his staff about players than more power to ya.
But when Klopp listened to his staff about Salah, he was listening to people who do it for a living.
Klopp's human, he makes mistakes. But I doubt he'll ever need correcting by anonymous posters on t' Interweb.

{Ed0666's Note - Bollox klopp is nothing without my footballing knowledge. He blows up my phone so much seeking advice I’ve had to block him countless times. The only reason I unblock him is because he gets me tickets to the match. Ok if you must know I told him to play Milly, Jones and Hendo on Saturday.

16.) 13 Oct 2021 20:05:13
Apparently Klopp wanted both Troare and Dembele last window. Have they joined us? No. Stop worrying about things that haven’t happened. No one on this site knows what Klopp really wants - and I mean no one - so chill out until he either makes a great or poor decision - fair to say that history is on his side!

{Ed0666's Note - I know what klopp wants…what he really wants!

17.) 13 Oct 2021 21:06:51
Are ye mad? they worry on here when were signing no one and they worry when we are, god forbid we actually have to pay a new players wage.

18.) 13 Oct 2021 19:40:27
Ed02 who else is after Dembele? Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody right now.}

19.) 14 Oct 2021 03:48:23
VVV - Dembele is better than Martial when he plays but I agree he has a history of injury on par with Daniel Sturbridge!
I would hope he has matured some now off the pitch and I would take him over Traore all day long in the hope that working under Klopp and addressing his fitness issues might just produce a worldy of a player.
Bobby will be off next summer, as will Divock.

20.) 14 Oct 2021 18:59:04
Hopefully Newcastle will step in for these two.

21.) 16 Oct 2021 06:44:30
VVVV - if you don”t stop dealing solely in absolutes I think your head might fall off - take a deep breath from time to time mate 👍👍.

22.) 18 Oct 2021 11:19:41
Dembele lols. Traore looked decent on the weekend bit of decent coachingbtheres a player in there somewhere.

23.) 21 Oct 2021 08:18:03
I would prefer Traore to Dembele purely down to experience in the PL and injury record. I think I would ideally want either Rafinha or Neto though if Salah were leaving.



14 Jul 2021 22:30:23
Any truth in the Grujic to Sassuolo and possible Berardi to Liverpool?


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath just yet. They are looking for a Locatelli replacement.}



18 Feb 2020 18:56:01
Afternoon, I’ve seen bits and bobs regarding Saka and Martinelli from Arsenal, Saka I really like him but I suppose he will block other youth team players progression.

Ed01, what do you make of Nunez/ Nkunku as players from what you have seen, and do you think they would fit us?


{Ed001's Note - from what I have seen Nkunku is the better player, but both look to be a good fit.}

1.) 06 Jun 2022 10:17:56
Those are the two I’d like us to pursue.

Amine Gouiri is the other to take a look at as he’s been playing in the 9 this season.



09 Nov 2021 22:44:55
Any interest in Nkunku?


{Ed002's Note - Lots but not from Liverpool.}



16 Jul 2021 19:41:47
Bit coming out about Aouar today, any truth Ed?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what is coming out, sorry.}

1.) 16 Jul 2021 21:13:29
I’d see a doctor about that, OP. Sounds like dangerous seepage 😱.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 22:03:14
You should get it lanced quickly.



12 Apr 2021 22:53:42
Hello Ed,

Can I ask, how is Klopp viewed throughout football? Is he well respected?



{Ed002's Note - It will vary depending on who you ask.}

1.) 13 Apr 2021 07:51:03
Pretty sure RB Leipzig don’t think highly of him and with good reason.

2.) 13 Apr 2021 07:58:52
He should be loved by all at Lfc. that's all that should matter. We shouldn't give a toss what Liepzig thinks of him. People go on as if Lfc have never been screwed over.

3.) 13 Apr 2021 10:02:02
No person be it a football manager or the man on the street will never have the respect of everyone. Klopp will be no different. As Jadon says he should be loved by Liverpool fans for what he had achieved at the club. Some people will dispise "Klipperty" but will have a love in for "Mr Mourinho" 😉 who personally I think is a goat 😄.

4.) 13 Apr 2021 14:27:19
Funny one, IR. Mou for me, is comedy gold right now and nothing more.



26 Jul 2020 12:15:02
Good afternoon Ed,

Apologies for my naivety,

What do clubs usually do with the prize money they receive from the Premier league at the end of the season?


{Ed002's Note - It is part of the income of the club - it does not have a specific usage.}

1.) 26 Jul 2020 12:59:36
We use it to pay agent fees and pastry for the half time pasties mate.

Ed do you rate Traore? Certainly has improved ten fold this season.


{Ed001's Note - he is alright for them, but he produces far too little of value to be ready for the step up. He still has a lack of end product. If Wolves had Trent or Mane getting in those positions, they would have created much more quality.}

I somehow don’t think the Ed’s are hotwired into every word they say.


{Ed0333's Note - Pep was pissed because it wasn’t cold enough to wear his customary coat/cardigan and he was just projecting his anger on the 4th referee and anyone within earshot. It’s ok it will soon be winter and he’ll be able to wear his favourite garment.

Just interested Ed! What makes you think he is the better option? Is it because he is more of a winger and cheaper?


{Ed002's Note - Cornet and Fekir are far more versatile than Fernandes. Again, other players who have been watched like Arnaut Danjuma and Thorgan Hazard are all adept in more than one position.}

Who is the other option ED?


{Ed002's Note - Maxwel Cornet.}
