Dear Ed001/ Ed002

I read today on the BBC that Rabiot's situation at PSG has deteriorated with PSG refusing to play him unless he signs a new contract. It also says Liverpool have been linked with the player for a summer move.

Two questions-
1. Could you see Liverpool moving for him (if we move on a few midfielders first)
2. Are PSG allowed to not play him as he has not signed a contract?



{Ed002's Note - 1. If Liverpool want him he will want to be a starter and that would be a problem unless they move Keita on - it does not seem to be a position that needs strengthening righ now. And with PSG having accused two sides (naming Barcelona as one) of tapping him up perhaps Liverpool would want to deal with the matter carefully if they are to look to him - so I am far from convinced. 2. Of course. It happens all of the time.}

1.) 20 Dec 2018 19:00:28
Thanks for the response Ed.

I was looking at the venues to host Champions League finals in the future and I was elated to discover the venue for the 2019/ 2020 final is the Attaturk stadium! Making the final would truly be special!


1.) 29 Aug 2018 23:24:00
Be great to win there as defending champions 😉.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 07:55:29
We will make the final.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 08:37:57
I wonder if they've done something about the transport issues from last time.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 12:37:54
there'll be enough busses back to the City center at half time this season.

5.) 04 Sep 2018 14:42:57
“I wonder if they've done something about the transport issues from last time. ”

😄 I went with the Irish Liverpool Supporters Club and I was paralytic before the plane took off from Dublin. I had no voice left by the time we landed in Turkey and then had “that” bus journey to sober up.
Greatest 48 hours I can (vaguely) remember 😄.

Any truth that Bayern Munich see Klopp as a long term successor to Heynckes?

Thanks for all your hard work.


{Ed002's Note - I assume this is Twitter. The timing isn't right now so I would not worry about it just yet.}

1.) 24 Mar 2018 20:30:52
Do any clubs have Klopp in their plans for the future like Bayern did at one stage?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs rarely plan like that.}

2.) 24 Mar 2018 20:58:38
But some day huh Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Of course they will consider him as an option.}

3.) 24 Mar 2018 21:25:01
I think Thomas Tuchel will likely end up as the next Bayern manager.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 22:52:23
It seems Tuchel has turned Bayern down. Rumour has it that PSG has Klopp on its list of candidates to replace Emery, in the coming sumer.

5.) 25 Mar 2018 03:48:28
I think Liverpool will be the last club Klopp manages. Raphael Hoginstein has a piece on Klopp spending 7 years at Mainz, 7 years at Broussia, and will spend 7 at Liverpool. He has a special relationship with each club and has said he won't coach into late age.



06 Jan 2018 18:53:10

Any truth that Newcastle are looking at Danny Ward on loan?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 19:35:10
Danny Ward has a number of potential suitors and I have it on good authority that his preference is for Nottingham Forest. it surprised me too . Klopp has td him that he sees himas LFC number 1 long term.

{Ed002's Note - I can’t see Liverpool sending him on loan unless Bogdan is now fit. Klopp promises a lot of things that aren’t true. If he has told him he is a future first choice then Liverpool won’t be looking for a new keeper for many years to come. Or maybe Klopp is lying again?}

2.) 06 Jan 2018 20:51:39
Cheers Ed.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 21:12:49
Lying being the same as not carrying out what you said you would despite the other party failing to keep their side of the deal?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about. If Klopp has told him that he will be number one then Liverpool has no need for a new GK for years to come. Or Klopp’s lying again.}

4.) 06 Jan 2018 22:06:01
Maybe he will be number 1 but as in that will be his squad number not first choice. Something needs to be done with him cos he is being wasted by LFC.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 21:57:29
I'm not sure Klopp knows who his first choice is right now so I don't believe what you may have been told, Kimos.



24 Aug 2017 12:17:05
Dear Eds and Reds,

I've been told by a source to expect a VVD bid by the end of the week. This source is 50/ 50 for getting things right, but he did tell me in May he expects us to sign Robertson.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 12:38:59
although I doubt your source is doing anything apart from guessing here I think you might be right.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 13:20:53
My thoughts too. Plus the windows ending, so somethings going to happen soon.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 13:26:35
I've heard this too, not sure how true it is though.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 13:09:17
Hi eds wat would happen if we just put a bid in will it open up the whole tapping up thing an will we be open too punishment by f. a.

{Ed002's Note - let it go, we are sick of people trying to bring it up over and over again.}

5.) 24 Aug 2017 13:49:59
Sorry just I am trying too cling on too any hope.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 14:22:04
I hope so. Great going forward, defense not so good.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 15:18:12
Ive given you both a thumbs up and a thumbs down, 50/ 50 like.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 15:47:52
if it comes to tapping up then southampton must as well not sell to chelsea, man city and Chelsea too. For southampton saying theywill not sell VVD to liverpool based on tapping up would be very ridiculous really.

Hi ed001,

Hope your doing well. What did you think of Origi yesterday? Thought he did real well when he came on and their defence didn't really have a plan when he came on.



{Ed001's Note - I thought he was impressive as well, though it was in large part because he was an addition to the front 3 and so piled on the pressure, rather than replacing one of them. However, he did do well and made a good fist of his time on the pitch.}

1.) 29 Sep 2019 17:44:37
Must admit the kid is really coming of age .

2.) 29 Sep 2019 18:35:27
Thanks for the reply Ed001. It's hard to find a player like that who can make a difference coming on and be contempt with sitting on the bench for large parts of the season. Long live Origi!

{Ed001's Note - he had the chance to leave before the start of last season and was behind Sturridge in the pecking order. Instead of moaning and whinging, he put his head down and worked his way back into contention. That is a very important quality.}

3.) 29 Sep 2019 19:08:23
Origi still has plenty more headlines to write with us.

4.) 29 Sep 2019 20:21:42
Every winning team needs a forward like that. Attentive on the bench, come in and make a decisive difference in a short amount of time. Like Fairclough in the old days. Or a certain O. G. Solsjkaer in more recent times.

5.) 29 Sep 2019 23:26:22
Is he origi happy enough with that role do you know ed?

Tough one, as I’m sure he knows he’s not good enough to push for starting berth, although he could get a handful of starts. He will need to keep sharp so a few sub appearances help, but is that enough for him?

{Ed001's Note - he wouldn't be here if he wasn't. He wants more but he knows he has to earn the right.}

6.) 30 Sep 2019 19:11:14
Thought he was great when he came on. Looks so dangerous cutting in onto his right foot. It gives tired defenders a nightmare and I bet the rb sobbed inside when he saw divok heading for the left wing.

7.) 30 Sep 2019 21:19:54
I simply LOVE our Divvy. I have loved him way before his heroics last season. The boy is, for a massive physical unit (he is as tall as Klopp who is NO slouch) that he is, he is super fast, great dribbling and tech. ability and eats rips CB's for fun when on form.

Origi could have left us several times before YET he is still here and that is not just a testament to his a fantastic attitude, his laid back approach and his determination and will to succeed. He is a CL winner and an LFC legend. PL winner? We can only hope.

{Ed025's Note - hes still at liverpool because no one else wanted him..

8.) 01 Oct 2019 04:03:06
he would walk into the everton side Ed025, still you bought iwobi for £40m. I shall leave it at that.
Speaking of players nobody else wants: get rid of pickford and buy yourself a goalkeeper that can organise a wall and stop the shot that comes his side.
How he is englands number 1 goalkeeper is beyond me.

{Ed025's Note - i have never been a pickford fan KK so you are preaching to the converted mate, he would not get in the everton side though even though we are desperate for a forward, hes a sub in most teams and comes on when everything else fails, basically as a lampost to hoof balls to and get a flick on..

9.) 01 Oct 2019 20:19:53
Ed25, Origi is at LFC cos he rejected a host of clubs and decided to stay and fight for his shirt and heavens bless him for that cos he is now an LFC legend. Wolves was going to pay over 27m in Jan to take him off our hands BUT let's not let facts get into the way of good and bitter rant from you, lol.

Also, You posting that one-lined rant is just you drowning in your sour grapes cos Divvy (who clearly triggers you the same way Pavlov used to trigger his dogs with the bell) has ruined your life during the derby days too many times before and to crown the mother of all beat-downs for you and your lot, Origi won us the CL. Origi's name will be written in LFC folklore for ALL eternity. Your pathetic divers namely Ritchie and Calvert-Lewin? Don't hold your breathe. And If no team wants him with that resume then LONG may his stay with us continue. Peace and Love, man.

{Ed025's Note - thats just a load of usual crap from you im afraid redwolf, your glasses are not so much tinted as brain numbingly biased, you cant see the bad in any liverpool player even if they deserve it which takes away any little credibility you had left my friend im afraid, loads on here wanted the likes of divock and lallana binned last year yet now you are telling us hes the best thing since sliced bread...amazing, and could you please stop sucking up and hanging on every word ED001 says please, it must be very embarrassing for him having you licking his boots after every reply or article he could well be suffering from cherry blossom poisoning mate, peace and love to you as well and i hope you see this as help rather than stick..

10.) 04 Oct 2019 20:57:33
True to form. Another bitter an mindless bunch of word salad. You think Origi is bad. I think he is good. Those are opinions, end of. I am happy to debate you on the merits of this difference in opinion w/ o sounding like as unhinged and triggered as you are sounding right now, calling me all types of names with the petulance of a high-schooler. Clearly, the art of debating is not your strong suit cos it seems to trigger you into spouting utter drivel and childish insults.

You say many on here wanted Lallana and Origi binned last year. I wanted Lallana binned BUT not Origi. So cos I disagree with those opinions and yours on Origi, I am now a rose-tinted glasses wearer who sees nothing bad in any LFC player (clearly, you don't read my posts) and am an Ed01 boot-licker cos you make no sense and he does? Again, you are sounding more unhinged by the minute. Ok so If I criticized Origi once, would that make you feel better and less triggered? Ok, I pledge to slate Origi just to make you happy, ok Boo-Boo? Peace and Love.

{Ed025's Note - im happy for you to have opinions redwolf just dont try and force yours down other posters throats thats all, and stop bullying people into your way of thinking just because you can use big words its very belittling, im sorry if i hit a nerve there but im a purveyor of the truth...its just my thing, love peace and happiness to you my friend..



28 Mar 2019 13:08:15
Cognrats to Xabi Alonso on winning the league with the U13 Real Madrid team! Hopefully one of our future managers once Klopp hangs up his boots after 5 Premier leagues and a few Champions leagues ;)


1.) 28 Mar 2019 18:44:06
Props to XA. Hopefully, it is a sign of things to come.



07 Mar 2019 10:38:31
Hi Ed001,

Apologies if this has already been asked or been done, but is a review of the Liverpool v Everton game coming out? If you'd rather not watch that game again I completely understand.



{Ed001's Note - it is trying to find time. I would have to sit and watch it twice in a row now just to remind myself what happened and then watch it for the review. So I very much doubt I will get one done now sorry. Even my comp was so gutted we didn't win it overheated...}

1.) 07 Mar 2019 12:43:01
I wouldn't wish it on anyone to watch that match again Ed.

2.) 07 Mar 2019 13:11:53
Thanks Ed for the response. Watching that game two more times would be torture!

{Ed001's Note - true, it was not a good watch!}

3.) 07 Mar 2019 13:24:57
Ed don't bother mate if you do watch it again your computer might end up well and truly buggered! Even pc's can't handle that!

{Ed001's Note - I think I would end up crying in the corner as well.}



18 Oct 2018 10:55:57
Hi Ed001,

Just a general footy question. When Kyllian Mbappe came on the scene, I felt you just knew he was something special and would become a world beater. Just like the same feeling I had with Messi. Are there any other players at the moment you feel that way about?



{Ed001's Note - that young lad Pellegri is the only one I can think of right now. There probably is more but my mind has gone blank.}

1.) 18 Oct 2018 12:54:34
This lad lost any single match he has scored in so far, unlucky.

2.) 18 Oct 2018 13:20:29
Cengiz Under is another one. One day he'll be huge imo. Top notch.

3.) 18 Oct 2018 14:28:29
Don’t rule out benny baller, still at the young age of 27. Those two goals at the charity match shows he’s still a fox in the box.

{Ed025's Note - i think your more of an origi than a salah though benny, plenty of effort without that finesse and guile of a top performer mate.. :)

4.) 18 Oct 2018 14:52:02
Pellegri has looked great when he's gotten a game, though his move to Monaco has been plagued by injuries which I hope he recovers from. Also Jardim leaving is a huge loss, he's a genius when it comes to developing youth players.

5.) 18 Oct 2018 20:23:44
Ismail Sarr of Rennes (brilliant at the WC for Senegal) is another one to watch for, I think.



26 Sep 2018 16:53:26
Hi Ed001,

Out of interest, what article are you currently working on? Have to say I really enjoyed the first part of the villains article series.



{Ed001's Note - I am working on the next boxing legends article which is on Thomas Hearns, though I have put it aside to do the comparison between the 08/09 team and this seasons. That would have been done by now but for the dentist butchering me over the last few days, so I haven't been up to doing much. Though I did manage to give the missus the best hour of her life yesterday....I was not allowed to open my mouth or speak for an hour.}

1.) 26 Sep 2018 17:01:40
The "Hit Man" (with spindly legs 😁) .

{Ed001's Note - one hell of a fighter though.}

2.) 26 Sep 2018 17:43:42
Oh yes he was, Ed001. Part of Emmanuel Steward's stable of really good boxers, at the time. The Duran, Leonard and Hagler fights were for the ages. Those were the days.

{Ed001's Note - it was good when boxers didn't spend their careers hiding from anyone likely to give them a good fight.}

3.) 26 Sep 2018 17:47:04
Ah brilliant Ed, I thought the Thomas Hearns one would be coming soon, get in! I really look forward to that one mate.

{Ed001's Note - I thought I would do that one next as I liked him as a fighter but don't really know anything about him. Also a couple of you requested him, and I tend to do the requests first anyway.}

4.) 26 Sep 2018 17:52:08
Did hears ever end up fighting "flip" danger?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea who that is mate sorry.}

5.) 26 Sep 2018 18:05:06
Ed01, Thomas Hearns was a brilliant fighter. He like his contemporaries (Sugar Ray, Roberto Duran etc) were artists of the sport. Also Ed, remember the memorable fights amongst Thomas Hearns, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard? For the kids out there, these fights are the stuff of legends. These guys literally fought each other at least twice and in some cases, THREE times. This was during the 80's when boxing was still The Sweet Science. Oh and by the way regarding Ed's comment about boxers of today dodging each other, back then, either you fought the guy who was the then no. 1 contender OR you did NOT get paid, pure and simple. After all, there is a reason the boxing legends of back in the day fought each other more than once and in some cases 3 times. Great times, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I loved Duran, not sure why, but always loved him as a fighter but never took to Leonard. They all seemed to have real personalities back then, they mostly seem sanitised now and if they do say anything interesting, like Bellew does, they get crucified for it.}

6.) 26 Sep 2018 18:51:54
At his peak, Roberto "Manos de Piedra" (Hands of Stone) Duran, was probably the best of all 4 of them. The way he slipped punches, and counterpunched was really something. By the time he fought Hearns and Leonard he was way past his peak and had probably lost his desire to fight (in the same way we saw with Mike Tyson and others) . Looking forward to your article on Hearns, Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, hopefully I will feel better tomorrow so I can't get back to it as I was enjoying doing the research on him.}

7.) 26 Sep 2018 19:02:09
Ed will you be doing one on Hagler? The fight in which he destroyed Hearns was unbelievable.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he is on the list.}

8.) 26 Sep 2018 19:27:42
{Ed001's Note - it was good when boxers didn't spend their careers hiding from anyone likely to give them a good fight. }

Cause they were fighters, and not 'professional boxers' who 'box professionally' with 'tactical acumen' and 'technical expertise', as if the fighters of old weren't professional, tactical or technical.

{Ed001's Note - good point. Far too many Mayweathers just in it for as much money as they can get, rather than people who actually did it for love of the sport.}

9.) 27 Sep 2018 00:24:15
Cheers Ed, i have to say I really like your articles.

10.) 27 Sep 2018 00:24:45
It's from the film "million dollar baby" ed01. Clint Eastwood and hillary what's her name. In clints gym there is a young lad called danger. Can't fight for rubbish. Has been training for months and never hit a bag but he has more heart than anyone. He always shouts that he wants to fight Tommy hearns, the motor city cobra. No one tells him that Tommy retired years ago.

If you haven't seen it and you like boxing you'll love million dollar baby ed01. Also cinderella man with Russel Crowle is brilliant. Much better than the rocky films. These are real Oscar nominated films. I think million dollar baby might have won best picture.

{Ed001's Note - winning an Oscar is normally a sign a film is utter cack.}

11.) 27 Sep 2018 00:44:09
Ed, will you be doing one on Prince Naseem Hamed? Not everyones cup of tea and never fulfilled his huge potential but he was hugely entertaining to watch (both his boxing and his showboating) .

{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list. He was too busy with other things that was his problem. Shame because he could have been in the argument as greatest all time pound for pound fighter if he has kept his head into boxing.}

12.) 27 Sep 2018 10:01:40
Agree Ed, and it looks like he's kept his head in the cheesecake since retiring.

{Ed001's Note - he certainly has been up to a thing or two, some things I wish I could mention here but can't. So frustrating.}

13.) 27 Sep 2018 20:27:16
"Nas" was awesome.

{Ed025's Note - i agree brover..

I did find it a problem with the amount of defence Bernardo Silva got for not one but two incidents. Yes he was trying to joke with his friend but he used a harmful stereotype. People really look up to footballers and its not the best thing for society if you think you can make offensive jokes just because they do. I don't think it was Bernardos intention to harm anyone but the fact he and Pep kept defending it shows that they both need to be educated.

The one I want to see keep getting minutes is Harvey Elliot. Too early to say how good he will be but he did look very sharp and bright when he’s played so far this season. Bit of a shame he was banned for this match for being a young div.

Mings should get a try I think. Players should be picked on form not by merit in my opinion.

Yeah there are no stand out goalkeepers in English football right now.

Are there any Eds who remind you of a vampire Ed0025?


{Ed025's Note - most of them are very pale and dont eat a lot of garlic taurus, and ED002 can be very biting with his answers at times but thats no reflection on the good work that they do mate.. :)

Who would you start over Keane and Pickford for England Ed0025? Personally I'd go Henderson or Heaton at GK with Stones and Maguire CB. When Stones is out then I'd happily put on my rent tinted specs and say Joe Gomez even though he hasn't been playing much because the rest are just not good enough.


{Ed025's Note - to be honest taurus i dont think maguire and keane works because neither of them are quick enough, stones and gomez are not playing regularly so they are not really in the frame at the moment so tyrone mings deserves a shot i think, he has really surprised me how good he has been for villa this season, so maybe him and maguire could be the best of a bad bunch mate, pickford is an accident waiting to happen and i have seen vampires who are less scared of crosses than him, heaton is not a bad shout but to be fair i dont think there are many good english goalies about..
