Another transfer out of the “where did this come from” locker.

. Emre Can agrees 4 year deal with Juventus.


1.) 04 Jun 2018 10:39:58
Shocking 😱had him down as the loyal type. Good riddance keita is twice the player he is. Think Klopp not too bothered he’s gone.

2.) 04 Jun 2018 11:09:23
Decent player with good potential but he had some way to go to being ready to tie down a permanent starting spot, and I was never sure if he was a 6 or an 8 or somewhere in between. Good luck to the lad, hope he does well.

3.) 04 Jun 2018 11:10:48
I'm stupefied, astounded, staggered and quite simply flabbergasted by this news. Of all the possible exits, this one is the most unexpected. And to Juventus of all possible teams? Just shows you the unpredictable nature of football. 😉.

4.) 04 Jun 2018 11:11:06
Good riddance? Looks like you aren’t the loyal type either! Not sure what he has done to upset you Barnes?

5.) 04 Jun 2018 11:11:57
I think Can deserves more respect than Coutinho and Suarez Barnes. He didn't force the move or skip training. He kept his mouth shut and was professional about it. He knew his game time would be less next year and chose to go somewhere where he could get more minutes. Hope he does well.

6.) 04 Jun 2018 11:29:47
Agree with Shents, he moved on and so should we. He was a professional and Klopp even mentioned this several times.

7.) 04 Jun 2018 11:41:33
He saw out his complete contract and always gave his all (IMO) - seems as loyal as you could ask a play to be nowadays really!

{Ed002's Note - The last thing clubs want is players to see out their contracts.}

8.) 04 Jun 2018 12:08:40
I think there's a fair smattering of dripping irony in this thread ;-)

9.) 04 Jun 2018 12:24:16
I think the main reason can left was that he knew when klopp had another transfer window that his starting place was most likely gone.

I think we paid 10.5 million or something around that and he has played quite a few positions and number of games since he joined.

I think in overall terms he has paid back his transfer fee and despite the bad games he had he was never bereft of desire to perform and see the club do well.

Cant see how anyone would have a problem with him leaving.

The fact the club aren't getting any money for him is their fault. His contract should have been extended before it got to a year left.

But maybe he wouldn't have signed it even then unless he had the exit clause. But a few seasons back he was starting every game he was fit.

Still it frees up a wage for someone who wouldn't have been in the main starting 11 next season.

Personally id have lallana follow him as quick as posdible. Not sure what they are both on but that should free up about 150k at least.

10.) 04 Jun 2018 12:37:13
For me personally I would of loved to have kept him. When he is on his game he is very good but I agree some below par performances also but I think he can only get better.

All the best to him for his future.

11.) 04 Jun 2018 13:13:10
Biggest mistake was not selling him last year. When he didn't commit to new deal. It was originally about playing time apparently yet when fit he started almost all the time. It then became apparent he then wanted a clause in contract that club weren't willing to add so he should have been moved on. I said this time last year after he won competition with Germany and never signed new deal on return, he would see out his deal and leave on a free which is his right of course. Hopefully the club will learn from this and if player is nearing last 18month or so of deal and doesn't commit then move them on as harsh as it sounds. I wish him luck as he was 1 of my favourite players, just a pity he's chosen to move on.

12.) 04 Jun 2018 13:21:50
What has being local got to do with wanting can gone. Im local and I'm glad he's gone. He can fekir off.

13.) 04 Jun 2018 15:48:53
He didn’t have to force the move he’s a free agent he can go where he wants. Not a bad player but slows the play down too much so Italy will suit his game. He will be remembered for the great goal he scored and nothing else 👋🏻👋🏻.

14.) 04 Jun 2018 16:07:14
This was unexpected / s.

15.) 04 Jun 2018 18:49:35
Can didn't give his all for us, if he did he would be one of the world's best by now. He has all the ingredients, but application is what let's him down. Losing concentration and focus and being positionally un sound in what is a very structured team is not giving your all in my opinion. Everyone has a role, and certain triggers set shapes in motion. Can simply didn't stay on it for sustained periods.

16.) 04 Jun 2018 23:25:10

I think your being slightly harsh mate. There is a difference between giving your all and your concentration levels.

There aren't too many midfielders can's age who are world class.

Some players struggle with concentration and positional awareness. Its not always related to a desire to be an individual rarther than a team player. Sometimes maturity cures the problem and sometimes it just never kicks in.

Gerrard never had great positional awareness.

In can's case i refuse to believe that he simply didn't care. I think its more of a case of him being young and eager. I think the positional awareness will come as he gets older.

If he had such poor concentration and positional awareness perhaps he should not have been playing as a holding midfielder when he did which is hardly his fault.

Im a bit sad to see him go because i quite liked him as a player who i always thought could get better.

He seemed to gain the trait of slowing down and waiting to roll the tackle which he never needed to do. I think he bulked up a bit too much wich cost him a bit in the nimbleness department.

Perhaps it might have been an injury that lost him a bit of spring in his step or a bit of doubt crept into his brain which isn't uncommon and is hard to shift.

Italy is probably league that will suit him better.

Of all the players who have left liverpool over the years can might actually be top of my list of players i would like to see succeed.

He is a player who genuinly loves the game. You can tell that by watching him play.

Sometimes things just naturally run their course.



18 Jun 2017 08:13:19
Hi ed,
The rumour pages have Karius as a target for Augsburg. Anything in this at all?


{Ed001's Note - there are a few clubs in Germany that would be interested if he were to be available. He is not though.}

1.) 18 Jun 2017 08:59:26
Is he still going to be No.1 eds?

{Ed001's Note - it will not be like that, I expect Migs to have the shirt but only so long as he performs.}

2.) 18 Jun 2017 09:19:25
With ward staying that means we have 3 decent - good keepers challenging for 1 place. However to start challenging for major trophies I would prefer us to have a top class-world class keeper in there starting week in week out. Scoring isn't a problem it's keeping the ball out after the opposition have only 2 shots a game.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 09:42:54
I think butland would be a great signing for us . Best English goalkeeper I think . Let karius and ward go out on loan . Mignolet as number 2.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 10:34:30
Agree about Butland Jonboy.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 10:56:45
I don't think we will sign a keeper but now would be the time to buy Butland, his stock is low after a injury plagued season.

6.) 18 Jun 2017 11:44:10
Liverpool signing a goalkeeper that needs building back up? Sounds like a recipe for a ruined career to me.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:11
I still think karius is good enough, he's hardly had a chance.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 13:39:19
What on earth would we need 4 goalkeepers for?

9.) 18 Jun 2017 15:22:41
Karius, last season was ok on shot stopping and distribution.

His ability on crosses and general mental strength were AT THE TIME below par.
He's a young lad who moved to a new club in a new country.

Whether throwing him in as No.1 was not the right decision especially as he got injured in pre-season.

10.) 18 Jun 2017 16:26:57
From what we've seen karius isn't good enough. Arguably we have the worst keeper in the top six except maybe city. Jack but land would be a great signing imo. Saying that we'd be in europa leage if not for mignolet. I think he has the ability to improve.

11.) 18 Jun 2017 17:03:09
But, johnnyskies, and it's a big 'but, ' is what we have seen truly representative of what he can achieve?

12.) 18 Jun 2017 17:22:34
And when he gets his chance the fans get off his back and give himself time to make it his own.

13.) 18 Jun 2017 19:44:25
Omg the election drama has completely thrown me off football - I can only dealing with one thing stressing me out at a time! Ward is staying? What is the club smoking?

14.) 18 Jun 2017 19:50:19
Johnny if by "what you have seen" in a pathetic amount 10 games, show that Karius is not good enough then you should never be a manager or academy coach cos you would be shipping out players left right and center cos you simply lack the patience to work with them esp. the talented ones as Karius is clearly talented.

As for those calling for Butland, a player who has gone almost a season without playing should give their heads a wobble.

15.) 18 Jun 2017 21:38:41
Brussels-You saying Karius wasn't poor in those 10 games?
Some players don't even get 10 games to prove themselves. It's a cut throat business and if we gave all players a prolonged period in the team regardless of performance then the team wouldn't be very successful.
That being said I'm not writing Karius off, I think he's got a good chance of being our number 1 (mainly because Mignolet is poor) but from what we have seen at Liverpool it hasn't been great.

16.) 18 Jun 2017 23:22:55
10 games is nowhere near enough. You also have to consider he was a young keeper in his debut season coming coming back from a broken hand. Migs was still poor when he first got his place back. It wasn't until the the end of the season when the gk staff changed the routine of training that migs showed improvements. We haven't seen what effect that has had on karius yet. Basically give the young lad a fair chance.

17.) 19 Jun 2017 01:25:44
Top top keepers establish themselves in first ten games. I don't think karius has done that. I haven't written him off but wold welcome improvement in that position.

{Ed001's Note - Buffon didn't. Grobbelaar didn't. In fact I doubt you could name one top top keeper that did.}

18.) 19 Jun 2017 10:41:49
some of the greatest keepers in history were pretty awful in their first year - Buffon, Shilton, Toldo all dropped in and out of first team in first 1-2 years. I think Oliver Khan is the only one who played consistently in first year for Bayern but then he had no competition at the time.

19.) 19 Jun 2017 11:14:51
Just like to add to Nevada's post, think back at how much we were laughing at Utd in De Gea's first season?!

Some people have such short memories.

20.) 19 Jun 2017 11:46:46
Massimo Taibi established himself in his first game and then it all fell apart 😆.



13 Feb 2016 10:57:59
Everyone is always asking Ed002 for her list of players that Liverpool are looking at. Any chance you can do the same from what you've been told? Time permitting of course. I'm sure most would like to have a gander at what you know!


{Ed001's Note - I was hoping to get time today, but not had the chance, I have added it to my to do list to try and get on to it during the week.}

1.) 13 Feb 2016 15:30:01
Thanks Ed can't wait to see it mate.

2.) 13 Feb 2016 20:45:10
That's what she said.

Afternoon Ed002.
Is there any provisions in place, in case a club has a number of 1st team players in isolation?
Reading PSG has 6. Could they, then say, they want to postpone an upcoming game due to this?
I’ve just booked myself a holiday in Marazion for next year, many memories of my childhood walking over to St. Michaels Mount and having to boat back.
Anyway, have a nice weekend.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Chelsea had eight and other clubs have players in isolation or quarantine. Games will simply be postponed as we have already seen in France with l'OM.}

1.) 04 Sep 2020 14:02:23
what's the isolation period? is it 14 days?
I'm actually so surprised there weren't more positive cases during the last restart. The players and coaches must have been behaving themselves during the restart! obviously bit harder to manager once the season ended.

{Ed002's Note - At the moment it is 14 days.}

2.) 04 Sep 2020 14:02:34
Ed002 would the clubs have to provide proof of positive tests or could teams use it to their advantage. For example I’ll use Liverpool. Say we were due to play city in a massive game and we lost a couple of players to niggles and fancied postponing it could teams cheat and get these games postponed or is it something that has already been looked at and is iron clad.

{Ed002's Note - I guess it may give Liverpool the opportunity to cheat.}

3.) 04 Sep 2020 14:26:13
To be honest does sound like something we would do unfortunately.

4.) 04 Sep 2020 15:34:20
one of the most foolish comments I have ever read on any forum on any site on the net
Liverbird31 hold your head down in shame.

5.) 04 Sep 2020 15:48:13
No it doesn’t, Livebirdbrain.

6.) 04 Sep 2020 15:31:51
Haha ed002 good to see your love or loathe of LFC hasn’t changed. Was a genuine question though aimed at all clubs.

{Ed002's Note - Other clubs don't look for ways to cheat - nor do their supporters.}

7.) 04 Sep 2020 15:59:24
LiveBird - one piece of advice about EVERY site. Don’t believe all you hear. Often there is a bias purpose for certain people’s comments.

{Ed002's Note - There is no bias you cretin. It is a Liverpool supporter enquiring if there is a way to cheat.}

8.) 04 Sep 2020 16:28:07
Yeah cos no other club cheated or cheats. man u, Rio Ferdinand, drug cheat. chelsea, maureen in the laundry trolley. I've just bitten lol you are going to need a bigger boat eds.

9.) 04 Sep 2020 16:50:22
Really? so according to you what we did to city. writing that letter and whatnot after all that scouting list thing was right? and what about all these tapping ups? just because someone does something wrong doesn't mean you should do it too. how we dealt with so many clubs is pathetic. Southampton, Fulham, rbl, . the list goes on and on. and what about that youngster who we signed from Stoke or somewhere. after all these things. using quarentine as an excuse isn't out of question is it?

10.) 04 Sep 2020 16:15:18
Ed002 Apologies I wish I never asked a genuine question now in the first place. Have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - Why be such a moron?}

11.) 04 Sep 2020 17:51:54
That is quite a leap from someone asking a hypothetical question to Liverpool are going cheat by faking C.V. results to avoid a game.

12.) 04 Sep 2020 20:11:02
Ed002 just in reply to one of the above comments re: the Stoke City youngster who we were found guilty of enticing. I appreciate if you don’t want to bring it all up again and he cannot be named but do you know if he’s getting on ok? Has he stayed in football and managed to sort his education out? Don’t want to know anymore just hope his career isn’t entirely squandered due to the actions of the club.

{Ed002's Note - Why would you want to bring this up}

13.) 04 Sep 2020 23:43:56
Klopp's never tapped me up tbf 👍. And he can't have been speaking to Thiago that day as we were at the Woking branch of a chain of high street pizza restaurants. I'm not saying Bayern or Ed002 are lying, but I do not recall any of that.

14.) 05 Sep 2020 09:59:00
Bit harsh Ed to call me a cheat and a moron for asking a Question and wishing you a good weekend. Hey ho though.

{Ed002's Note - You are Liverpool supporter asking about ways to cheat.}

15.) 05 Sep 2020 10:21:19
Ed002 I was only asking a generic question mate to try and change the subject of money and transfers. It was based around all clubs. Since I have asked the question the Czech republic have cancelled their Monday game against Scotland without FIFA consent (so sky sports are reporting) due to C.V. and now Scotland are holed up in their hotel waiting to find out if game will go ahead. I by no means encourage any club to cheat be it transfers, FFP or lying to cancel games. I was just wondering if the FA had looked at this.

{Ed002's Note - You are simply a Liverpool suppoirter looking for ways the club can cheat - we see it often enough.}

16.) 05 Sep 2020 10:36:44
Haha Ok. The owners will be gutted to hear when I report to them my secret cheating mission failed. Genuinely though have a good weekend and keep up the great work you and the other Ed’s do with this site.

{Ed002's Note - And you, enjoy your weekend.}



17 Jul 2020 16:42:22
Looks like we missed out on Andre Schurrle again 🙄.


1.) 17 Jul 2020 17:07:22
What happened to that lad? He used to be really good. I thought Fulham had done amazing bagging him, I was shocked. Who has he signed for tris?

{Ed001's Note - he has retired.}

2.) 17 Jul 2020 18:27:48
Sounds like his heart isn't in it anymore. Fair play to him for retiring rather than phoning it in for another payday.

3.) 17 Jul 2020 20:27:05
retiring at 29! lucky so and so.

4.) 18 Jul 2020 14:00:24
Mental well-being is most important. Hope he finds true happiness in his future endeavours.



07 Jul 2020 15:17:14
Afternoon Ed,
Are there any championship, and below, teams that are particularly well run and maybe have an edge over the clubs in that division, in regards to finances, during this current climate?
Clubs that can maybe cherry pick the better players from the struggling ones?


{Ed002's Note - There are Championship clubs (e.g. Hull) who are in a better position financially than most but the Championship overall is not in great shape driven largely by high wages and now a loss of matchday revenue. Clubs generally don't cherry pick players from other clubs because of finances but look to get in players that suit their particular needs. But many have FFP problems (e.g. Birmingham, Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa when they get there). You will likely see even tighter financial controls having to be applied or more and more clubs will be calling in the Administrators. The eventual desire is for clubs across Europe to be debt-free and self-funding.}



29 Jun 2020 22:42:37
Sending my best wishes to Andre Wisdom who was stabbed over the weekend.
Some real **** around.


1.) 29 Jun 2020 23:33:21
Copy that . I always liked Big Andre and this is a total shock, hope he recovers quickly.

2.) 29 Jun 2020 23:50:32
Joking and joshing aside wishing a speedy recovery to andre, get well soon the red families stand with you.

3.) 30 Jun 2020 12:55:24
Oh No! I hope he is fine and wish him and his fam a speedy recovery.



11 Apr 2020 06:56:10
Morning Ed,
Sad to hear about King Kenny, let's hope him and everyone inflicted by this disease makes a full and happy recovery.
But, whilst on the subject of Kenny, how good a manager was he? Right place, right time? Or was he a genuinely great manager.
He has quite the record of managerial trophies.
Should he/ could he have done more if he carried on?
Be nice to hear your views.


{Ed001's Note - hard to say. Early on he had Paisley, then Hillsborough came along when Paisley retired properly. Kenny was not the same after that and the team was going downhill under him alarmingly. After a break he came back and won the league with Blackburn but spent heavily and they were a functional side rather than a great one. That is why it fell apart quickly as they had very little quality to their play. It was basic at best.

His time at Celtic was an aberration best forgotten. Then he returned and got us turned the right way but he did seem out of his time. As a player he was without doubt the best we ever had. As a manager it is difficult to judge him as he had to deal with the 2 most difficult periods in the club's history taking over right after Heysel and then managing us through Hillsborough.

To me all of it is really irrelevant. What matters is what he did in the aftermath of Hillsborough. That is his legacy as Liverpool manager. That made him a true great who deserves recognition as probably the greatest man to be involved with the club and everything else is simply insignificant. }

1.) 11 Apr 2020 07:54:08
To carry the weight and hurt of those families takes a truly special gentleman, get well soon Kenny.

2.) 11 Apr 2020 08:12:46
And that is the best 3 paragraphs I’ve read in a long long time. Perfect summary of the greatest we’ve had. Hope you’re home soon King Kenny,

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

3.) 11 Apr 2020 08:24:56
Thanks Ed.
Completely agree on your points made to what he did off the field trumps all.
Such a genuinely lovely man.
Appreciate your time.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. Fingers crossed he makes a full recovery!}

4.) 11 Apr 2020 09:46:08
How do you rate Souness as a manager, ed001? He seemed to have some decent success abroad but it didn't really work out at Liverpool.

{Ed001's Note - he was ok when he was working with a lesser standard of player who were overawed by him. The better quality needed at Liverpool just were not.}

5.) 11 Apr 2020 10:30:16
I would just like to 2nd what WarMachine said. Well written piece, Ed.
May our King have the speediest of recoveries and a Happy, safe Easter to everyone on here and all the Eds.

{Ed001's Note - thank you very much. Is it Easter? I hadn't realised to be honest. That explains why I was able to buy creme eggs last time I was able to go to the shops before all this hit.}

6.) 11 Apr 2020 10:51:42
They do tins of Cadbury mini eggs as well now.
I purchased a tin for my daughter.
She may be disappointed with how many are in there though.

{Ed001's Note - I think she will be just delighted to get Easter Eggs this year!}

7.) 11 Apr 2020 12:44:57
Football wise, two things killed Kenny's second spell. One was Lucas' injury and the other was a £35m gamble on Carroll. We actually played decent football quite often, but didn't stick in the net. My over-riding memory is a team that continuously fluffed easy chances, including several missed penalties, and hit the post more than they scored. Downing got hammered for getting zero assists that season, but I lost count of the amount of times he put one on a plate for Carroll only for the ponitailed drunkard to head wide.

Of course there were also non-footballing issues with Carroll's strike partner that we all know about.

8.) 11 Apr 2020 13:27:07
Agree SR. I don’t know if it was ever an option or whatever, but Torres and Suarez would’ve been unstoppable. Prem and Europe.

9.) 11 Apr 2020 15:48:29
Kind of agree SR however I think the Suarez incident was the biggest factor. Like ed said tho I think he was probably out of his time. I remember a few interviews that were genuinely uncomfortable to watch.

However he only ever does what he thinks is best for the club and we're lucky to have the man. An absolute great and hope he pulls through this.

10.) 11 Apr 2020 15:57:37
Oh agreed Bledd, Suarez was the main reason he was sacked overall. I was talking purely from the point of view of the football on the pitch. We were 8th when we were probably good enough for 3rd or 4th.

11.) 11 Apr 2020 16:30:45
Ah sorry yeah I see what you mean. You could really see the positive effect he had tho. Giving the likes of Flanagan a run with that back 5 formation everyone just seemed to get a lift.

People often go on about Thiago’s injury record but, in the last 5 seasons, he’s played 42/ 41/ 32/ 42/ 37 games. He had 2 bad seasons before that with 2 knee injuries, but apart from that, it’s not too bad for a midfield that’ll be constantly rotated.

I got a new stadium named after me on FM 11/ 12 after about 30 seasons before retiring.
I also used to have a lot more time on my hands than I currently do.
