I still can't believe Woodburn is still only 20 seems to of been around for Ages, what do you think was the issue for him in being able to step up? at 17 he looked like he was going to be a top player.

do you think another season on loan at Oxford would be a good move?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - It makes sense - he won't get a chance at Liverpool.}

1.) 14 Jun 2020 14:47:32
Would be a good loan move, Karl Robinson has a good track record with developing young players.

2.) 14 Jun 2020 14:37:33
Still think Woodburn can be a Premier League player. i can remember him taking stick on here for failing to establish himself at Sheff Utd at 18 years of age. People asked how he couldn't get in at a club tipped to be relegated straight back to league 1.two years later Sheffield are on the verge of the Champions League. Then he went to Oxford and was doing very well till he got injured, he shouldn't be written off yet.

3.) 14 Jun 2020 16:07:12
I think the fact he’s working with a manager who trusts him and is both a Liverpool supporter and worked at Liverpool helps him, he’ll want Woodburn to succeed and help him make it here.

4.) 15 Jun 2020 08:18:21
I just don't think he's good enough sadly. I've personally never seen him have a great game. I hope he succeeds somewhere but he has no realistic chance at liverpool.

5.) 15 Jun 2020 12:50:26
Must be a tough for a young mad to be thrown into the limelight at such an age even to make his debut for Wales, it would be tough for him to not think he had "made it".

Hopefully he can knuckle down and stay free of injury as there is a player there for sure.

I did at one stage think wilson and woodburn would be part of the LFC future.

With the impact of the virus being understated,
Do you think as a club we will look to lower our wage bill.

E. g allow Clyne, Lallana, Shaqiri, Lovren etc to leave and allow only youth to replace them?

Given we are at a big £310m a year it’s going to be difficult to not feel the impact.

Could save us over £300k a week!

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to lower the wage bill but whether it will be through replacing players with youth I would doubt, certainly in the case of Lovren. Clyne and Lallana are out of contract and will seek new clubs. The club has the chance to replace Lovren and use Saqiri in the deal but the opportunity to sell Lovren has diminished in recent days - so the club will need to be proactive.}

1.) 09 Jun 2020 18:30:57
Hello Ed02, other than Roma has any other club expressed interest in Lovren. Seems Roma are happy with Smalling.

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time as far as I know.}

2.) 09 Jun 2020 19:35:14
Do you think it is a mistake to try and get that Sevilla CB? Obviously he would come in as a starring role. But surely that would lead to Gomez reviewing his position in the team?

{Ed002's Note - It is clear that Klopp has been looking to strengthen by adding a starting CB. Whether or not it happens now is to be seen.”

3.) 09 Jun 2020 19:42:46
Ed do you no if we have expressed our interest in DC to Sevilla or his agent as of yet?

{Ed002's Note - The club is aware of interest from Liverpool and Real Madrid.}

4.) 09 Jun 2020 21:17:00
I’d wager he’s more likely to go to Real than come here, swaps rarely ever happen regardless of Sevilla’s interest In Shaqiri and if the player is settled in Spain he’ll probably opt UK stay there.

{Ed002's Note - There are numerous player exchanges every season - and there will be even more this season. Liverpool won’t do anything about him if they cannot sell Lovren.}



28 May 2020 19:43:23
Congrats to Abdi Sharif for getting a new deal!

Looked a decent prospect before his long term injury, hopefully he can kick on (no pun intended)

The Southern Red



22 May 2020 11:36:31
Hi Ed’s

I know there has been mentions of a reduction in sales and more loan deals. With the impending restrictions of how many senior players you are allowed out on loan.

Do you think this will push the prices down further?

Chelsea, city, Watford to name a few have way more senior players out on loan than what they will he allowed.

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - There are no limits to the number of players that can go out on loan - the usual summer cull of players who could be released will give a better indication of where it will head. Prices will drop which then leads to fewer players moving. I don't understand your last sentence, sorry.}

1.) 23 May 2020 21:36:51
Apologies Ed’s I thought that the 20/ 21 season they were implementing regulation to limit players out on loan.

I was using those clubs as examples who have significant numbers out on loan.

{Ed002's Note - OK. I think you misunderstand. The limit only relates to non HG over 21.}



19 May 2020 13:08:18
With the recurring comments around HG issues, I know it has been mentioned we are looking at white as a CB.

But are there any other HG talent we are looking at?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Yes but not in respect of likely candidates for this summer. At present one non HG spot remains for the squad, but it will be eased by the likely departures of Lovren and Shaqiri.}

Congrats on Woodburn and Brannagan for making the playoff finals hoping they can go all the way!

Would love Woodburn to stay with Oxford another season in the championship, can’t believe he is still only 20!

The Southern Red

1.) 07 Jul 2020 12:43:21
He’s working with a manager who believes in him and will give him chances, hopefully Oxford go up so he’ll get a loan at a championship side.

2.) 07 Jul 2020 13:07:21
Hope so as well for Woody and Branagan.

3.) 07 jul 2020 13:08:04
hope you'll join me in raising a slice of domino's to cameron and ben as of course he got a big stack of the buggers for his man of the match performance (not the healthiest of delicious treats for a footballers diet mind you, dominos should be absolutely ashamed of themselves, disgusting, immoral company that being said i do a love a mighty

all told i do believe mama sakho (not mummy or daddy but mama mama mama mia) loved a few dominos here and there and hence he would scoff his face with the likes of the meateor, american hot, and the likes and i do believe that was why he required the fat burners that saw him cruelly ruled out of our final loss to sevilla. (he told me all this himself on our biannual binge of masterchef, i'm not making it up (i do believe alberto moreno was on something altogether more sinister on the fateful night) )

all of this being said zoom does not appreciate the piggy backing on his post and will not stand for it hehe only joking me old mate.

4.) 07 Jul 2020 13:50:05
I’ll raise an ice cold Paulaner to them both.

5.) 07 Jul 2020 14:06:44
After reading Zoom's posts I get the feeling there's a whole alternate reality out there that I was never aware of. Like visiting a lost tribe deep in the Amazon jungle. 😁.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 17:01:28
Jeweller Jim at it again, his posts sound like the ramblings of an utter madman though of course there is an alternate reality in the Amazon courtesy of one gorilla city hidden deep in the jungle.

7.) 07 Jul 2020 17:12:33
Lmao Zoom.

8.) 07 Jul 2020 18:32:52
Never ever a sausage in all my life what are you trying to insinuate young man I have been propositioned with several sausages in my life and everyone I have turned down (although I did experiment with sausages in college)



04 Jul 2020 19:32:57
With Leeds looking more and more likely to come up, do you think we might see Milner want to head back for their first prem season?

The Southern Red

1.) 04 Jul 2020 19:45:42
Hhhmm forgot about that possibility Southern Red. His versatility would be hard for us to replace. Maybe the draw of first team football at Leeds would be strong for him.

2.) 04 Jul 2020 19:56:32
I would love to see him stay at least for another season. His influence and example he brings to his teammates is not something that we can replace, . Even though we from the outside can never see that impact really to fully appreciate it, but when you hear others speak about his role and leadership in the dressing room you can tell how much he's respected. His physical care is as professional as anyone I've seen and he still has the tools to play at the standard we require when needed. If he wanted a Leeds return this year then no one could fault him that at all but id love to see him have the hunger to give a title defence a crack as he knows he's still valuable to klopp and his teammates.

I think in the future he'd make a great coach in a suitable role, his experience having played in many positions and for many different managers and styles, his professional attitude, calm demeanour and clear leadership traits would be perfect recipe to make a strong career after retirement.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 20:34:38
I still believe Milly has something to offer despite his age.

4.) 04 Jul 2020 20:45:03
Milner always plays well, always. And he's often excellent. Selfishly we want him to stay. I'd be happy with whatever he chooses, he's earned it. And I think he'd make a great coach. Maybe Leeds need him more than us. Wasn't his biggest fan at city, he has absolutely won me round with his work ethic, sense of humour. Seems such an excellent motivator and a great presence.

5.) 04 Jul 2020 21:34:48
He signed a two year extension so I guess he is staying but you never know cos things change so fast in football these days.

6.) 04 Jul 2020 21:39:38
With us seemingly having zero money to buy anyone at all, it seems unlikely we’d let Milner leave for free?
Unless Larouci is deemed good enough cover for robbo.

7.) 04 Jul 2020 21:41:59
I love Milly and think he has contributed as much to our success as anyone. I'm sure that he would LOVE to end his career with Leeds.

I'm sure that after his career is over he will say that he is a Leeds supporter, but I'd love to know what he has to say behind the scenes about which club came in second for him.

For me he is the quentisetial Liverpool player. I will always be a Milner fan.

8.) 04 Jul 2020 22:23:00
I hope he stays. He makes a big difference in ways that are not so easily seen.

9.) 05 Jul 2020 09:35:48
Does anyone know if Leeds or Bielsa are actually interested in Milner. I know any club would be mad to turn their nose up at a player of his experience and calibre but both parties would need to want the deal to happen for it to actually work.

10.) 05 Jul 2020 10:10:36
I hope he stays as he’s a huge influence in the squad and you can always rely upon him to put in a 7/ 10 performance wherever you play him.

11.) 05 Jul 2020 14:04:18
I hope he stays too, gives everything no matter the role he's asked to play. Massive influence and supports the others too, great role model for the younger ones too - great vice captain and would be hard to replace.

27 Jun 2020 08:39:19
i know you mention a few times about financials and waiting to see them get posted somewhere?

what is the best truth for players salaries and fees?

The Southern Red

{Ed047's Note - sorry mate, not sure who you are asking but websites like will list the players wages, not sure about fees though.

1.) 27 Jun 2020 09:57:44
it was more of a general question as people throw around all sorts of numbers relating to wages etc.

{Ed001's Note - the figures are usually inaccurate and based mainly on guesswork.}

2.) 27 Jun 2020 09:15:01
Thanks Ed 047 That recommendation was a real eye opener regarding wages. Really interesting how the pecking order runs although a lot must be due to when contract renewals take place. Cheers.

3.) 27 Jun 2020 09:57:58
and thanks!

{Ed047's Note - You’re welcome

4.) 27 Jun 2020 10:36:24
FIFA's TMS should be 100% accurate in terms of transfer fees etc. But I don't think the general public has access to it.



20 Jun 2020 20:43:47
with the assumption that we won't make any major signings, is there anyone who is out on loan currently that you would actually think could provide an option for us next season?

obvious names are wilson and gruijc but still questions around whether they are up to standard.

The Southern Red

1.) 20 Jun 2020 21:36:48
OP, we have Grujic, Wilson and potentially Brewster coming back from loan BUT I think Grujic and Wilson may get sold while Brewster may go on loan again. Just my take based on what the Ed's have been saying.

2.) 21 Jun 2020 09:10:15
With the exception of clyne (who hasn't played a single game) and Lallana who has barely featured as things stand nobody else of even remote significance is actually confirmed to be leaving. You would assume williams takes Clynes squad position and Jones comes in for Lallana although there might be an argument they play different roles. The season isn't finished yet, we've not been able to scout for over 2/ 3 months. Chill out over transfers, these discussions and questions come through daily and nothing has or is likely to change immediately. Instead of speculating let's see what happens and trust klopp and his team to do the right thing in terms of any potential players that may come in. Our opinion counts for nothing, it's the aforementioned that make them decisions and work with them players. I'd argue why would you want to break uo this squad? They must absolutely buzz off each other, nobody in their right mind would want to rip that apart.

3.) 21 Jun 2020 09:16:19
Good to see Brewster hit the ground running yesterday with 2 goals. I think another season under Cooper who knows him well at Swansea could be brilliant for him and us.

4.) 21 Jun 2020 09:47:57
None of the loan players give us anything so no!

Thanks ed, he does look a very decent prospect! And potentially coming at a more manageable fee.

Hopefully our recruitment team are pushing for it.

Do you think he’s ready for a premiership loan? Or another season at the top of the championship.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - depends on the team. Someone like Brighton, where he would play every week, he is ready.}

People need to remember we made £80m last year on matchday, which might not happen all next season!

I’d rather us focus on getting the new training ground done and continue with the expansion of Anfield, we have some of the best players on the planet, very difficult to buy a player to replace them.

Aouar would be a dream, do you think he will leave Lyon this summer?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I would think finances will be difficult for everyone this summer and so possibilities exist if teams have the cash to take advantage.}

Elliot’s far from lightweight he’s learnt over the years how to compete against people far bigger than him.

Watch him again and you’ll notice he does not get bullied on the ball at all.
