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.

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..



14 Sep 2018 11:30:00
Not sure if everyone has seen, but Liverpool have decided not to renew their contract with Tibet water.


1.) 14 Sep 2018 12:28:43
Excellent. Hydration is vastly underrated 👍.

2.) 14 Sep 2018 13:14:13
*over-rated! 🙈.

Cobra666, I'm just glad Adrian can kick the ball properly. Mignolets kicks were abysmal and looked like they were going in slow motion they were that bad.

It's a shame Ashley will probably never sell. If he sold and they kept Rafa, he could have brought them up to the standard of Leicester, Wolves and Everton fairly quickly. Instead they will probably get relegated with Brucey now.


{Ed001's Note - it is a shame for the fans, but not for Ashley, Charnley and Llambias.}

The premier league is an unpredictable beast. We forget the current crop of players can get better and teamwork can improve. Equally things can get worse and a manager can lose their mind.

Regardless I’m just excited to see the league unfold. It’s never predicable and if it was that would sure be boring.
