Hi Eds,

I read recently that Besiktas are not happy at all with Karius' performances since they took him and are now talking about terminating his loan in January and taking Origi instead. Do you know if there's any truth to this? And in your opinion, what what do you think that will do to his mentality if it were to happen?


{Ed002's Note - I can't see that there is any truth in their looking to or even being able to terminate his Karius' loan. However, Besiktas are looking to add a forward and Divock Origi is one option they are looking at, but their focus is initially on someone else.}

1.) 01 Nov 2018 10:25:45
Things must be going bad if they are considering putting Origi in goal 🤔.

2.) 01 Nov 2018 14:27:10
Karius and his agent dismised those rumours.

3.) 02 Nov 2018 02:36:04
There was an article about this in The Guardian which stated that the Turkish press is having a field day dragging Karius' name through the mud, primarily because there news stories are often picked up by the British press. It also mentioned that the back-up keeper at Besiktas is a former Turkish international and some have suggested he should be starting games over Karius. The article went on to state that Besiktas were happy with Karius, that he had adapted to life well in Turkey, and that such stories were pure fabrication. Make of this what you will but it seemed to make a certain amount of logical sense to me.

Just wanted people's and eds opinion, it's being commonly said that couts is going to replace iniesta who is probably in his last full season and understandably, couts is scared that if Barcelona don't buy him now, they'll move to another player so won't want him next season, everyone crying out for one more season, who would accept £100 million with him staying on a season long loan? Highly unlikely I know but it was mentioned kind of in the bar tonight and was just curious of other people's thoughts.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 23:17:55
I would prefer more money now.
A season long loan is pointless, he'd have nothing to play for. If the player is not committed to LFC then they are no use to us.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 23:18:58
Why would Barcelona ever do that, the reason why coutinho is wary that it is now or never is because they want a player to come in now . buying now and loaning back would be moronic from barcelonas point of view, especially if your paying 100 million. My opinion anyway.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 23:44:10
Ck14,i wasn't suggesting for one second it was feasible, more just getting views, I'm in agreement with you Ron that I would rather let him go and play someone 100% dedicated in his position so it wasn't me saying I hope this happens, it was only because it was mentioned earlier I wanted to see if this was offered, who would take it?

4.) 11 Aug 2017 23:48:12
i want more.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 00:01:35
Co - the question was whether you would accept that kind of deal! The answer for me is yup yup and yup! laced with a little bit of hesitation tho knowing that it can be difficult to focus for a long period when you know you're dream move is coming.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 00:06:02
If Iniesta can do another season why sell Couts now and leave us short? . Let him go next year and we can find a suitable replacement in the meantime. Oh right it suits Barcelona to get him now and bed him in thus causing us hassle as Ed2 said Liverpool as known for a year he was wanting the men in suits should have had this sorted along time ago.

7.) 12 Aug 2017 01:21:24
After getting over the initial shock of pc's tr and having time to think. He should go. I know he will still perform for us if we force him to stay but I've always felt that if a player isn't 100% committed to the club and the player wants to leave it will have a detrimental effect on the club to make him stay. I don't want anyone here who doesn't want to be here. It's that simple really. No matter how good. For that reason sell him. And it's for that reason I think virgil van djike will definitely join and naby kieta too. We can't bank on that (as far as I'm aware) so in the mean time sign lanzini or luan who shouldn't break the bank and although not pc level (but who is! ) They could both do a job for us. I don't know much about luan, he has v good reputation and clips look brilliant but lanzini I feel could really surprise people, the guy is fantastic, very intelligent footballer, very skillful. I could see him scoring 14 assisting 7, absolutely. Then what have we lost? A hefty wage bill. Plus we have a lot of cash. I'm not suggesting lanzini is as good all round player as pc but like I say, he could certainly go 14 g 7 a

That said we don't fully know the pc situation. Papers are making it sound like war between lfc and coutinio family. We all know what women can be like when they don't get their way or have their sights set on something. I don't wanna right off pc yet but if he really has his heart set on the move so much so that he is falling out with people at the club then it's mad to make him stay. It could actually cost us a title, rather than get us closer to one.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 03:53:44
I think it should be that Liverpool takes a few days to explore whether there is a realistic chance of signing a top player we'd be happy with - perhaps Keita again for even more money, or Max Meyer, or someone PSG needs to sell (like Matuidi. ) and if we can still strengthen the squad before end of the window then let Couts go. Better for everyone's reputation

If we can't get a player with sufficient quality to strengthen midfield or at striker (so Firmino can drop deeper) then he stays and hope he understands the situation and knuckles down like Suarez did.

I'm worried that unlike Suarez who was turned down from joining Arsenal, Coutinho is being refused from his ultimate dream. Given how strongly he clearly feels now, we should not be blocking that move unless we really have zero choice.

9.) 12 Aug 2017 05:07:13
Matuidi to replace Coutinho?

10.) 12 Aug 2017 05:27:37
I habe been impressed by Lanzini a couple times. One match i saw i remember thinking this kid kinda termindato me of Coutinho. don't know why so many people say he is crap.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 05:27:56
Javier Pastore to replace Coutinho?

12.) 12 Aug 2017 06:48:02
Cobra, our wingers this season are going to be Mane and Salah so we don't need a like for like replacement, we just need a player that we think will strengthen the squad. If we got Matuidi, Hendo and Matuidi at base of midfield would be an awesome combo, freeing up Lallana and Gini to play further forward.

The point is we have the freedom to rethink how we shape the team, and we should be bringing in the best player that improves the overall squad. We still have the midfield combo of Hendo/ Gino/ Lallana that was so effective last year remember, so it's not even prescriptive a new recruit even needs to be in midfield IMO. Could potentially be a world class striker like Lewa and dropping Firmino into no.10 (I know never going to happen, just making a point) .

13.) 12 Aug 2017 07:12:46
It is a job. People change jobs. And as any other employer does LFC needs to consider if need someone to do that job now he is leaving. Personally I don't think playing position is the issue. The money could be used to bring in someone to have as big an impact in a different position.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 07:22:54
LFC will probably sell at 120m Euro now that he has handed in a request to leave, just hope LFC spend it wisely.

15.) 12 Aug 2017 07:44:29
LFC should do unto others. Barcelona got a lot for Neymar insist they spend it.

16.) 12 Aug 2017 08:06:25
I will be so happy when the transfer window shuts. I don't think I have been this unconcerned about a new season before. I'm usually buzzing but I'm all 'Meh' at the moment. LFC need to get it together in regards to how they do business.

17.) 12 Aug 2017 08:43:18
Unconcerned? Our star player wants out and will surely of caused unrest in the camp by handing in a transfer request a day before our first game, can is refusing to sign a contract, our top targets aren't for sale, we are still shockingly bad at the back, same defence as last year, Robertson will be a benchwarmer! For todays game, no coutinho, lallana, sturridge, clyne or lovren! Nothing to be concerned about hey?

18.) 12 Aug 2017 09:35:18
Liverpool should give Barcelona 48hrs to put £120 mill on the table in full payment. If they won't then there is no deal and he stays. I don't want to keep anyone who doesn't want to stay. but we must get the maximum we can in order to replace him.

19.) 12 Aug 2017 09:37:09
Do on to others?
So when we force the cash out of Barcelona you would like everyone else to do the same to us as we look for replacements?

20.) 12 Aug 2017 12:33:44
Should tell Barcelona you can have him at the end of the transfer window for 120mill and between now and then try and get someone in. I don't know if this is possible but I would tell them not to leak this to the press or the deal is off just so other clubs don't know we have 120 mill to spend so they can't inflate their prices. I personally want him gone handing in a TR 1 day before our first game and 4 days before a massive game for us. If he handed the TR in last month i would have wished him all the best but coming out with crap about doing it amicably is bullshit he wanted his 5 percent of the transfer fee.

21.) 12 Aug 2017 12:54:55
Unconcerned may have been the wrong word. I meant unconcerned as in, I don't even care the season is starting because pre season has been a let down. Maybe Depressed is a better expression.

22.) 12 Aug 2017 15:21:01
Neymar deal has put everyone's head in the clouds. Cannot believe people are calling 90 million a pitance (sorry about spelling) it's 0.1 % of Britain's debt to euro union! Coutinio is class but not the 2nd best player ever. Far from it.

That said, as we are directly affected by the neymar deal we too should see an inflated price. I like the idea of raiding PSG as they must have decent players who need selling.

23.) 12 Aug 2017 15:23:16
Easy to say "buy a top striker" but who? This could've been sorted out sooner and we could have seriously gone for lacazette. He looks great and I think we will live to regret not making it happen. Especially if arsenal finish above us.

24.) 12 Aug 2017 17:59:16
I think psg cm would be decent. I'm not completely sold on gini wijnaldum. I think he is a pussy. That's why he never scores away goals. He closed his eyes to head the ball today which led to watford equiliser. BEFORE his head made contact! I think goals against city and boro make us think he is better than he is. He's okay, part of me really likes him but I think liverpool lack metal. Imo we have 2 players with real steel in em and that's Hendo and Can. The fact I haven't added a cb in that list really highlights liverpool problem.

Successful lfc teams of the past have been full of "hard" players. Gerrard, hanman, mascherano, hypia, skrtel agger Ince souness mcman. The list goes on. People will say football has changed but chelsea were full of bruisers last year and people will always dislike getting hurt. Kieta znd van djike would certainly give us some edge. It should hurt to play liverpool.

25.) 12 Aug 2017 23:05:18
Red sky I don't want it, I fully expect everyone else to want that money cos they will and always have done.



08 Dec 2015 09:43:07
Hi eds, is someone having a laugh suggesting 18million for Rossi? Please tell me we're not interested.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool.}

1.) 08 Dec 2015 13:45:30
Someone to compete with Sturridge. For time out injured, that is.

2.) 08 Dec 2015 14:10:25
Perhaps the strategy is if we have Pato, Rossi, Sturridge in the squad we might be able to get at least one of them on the pitch between them.

3.) 09 Dec 2015 00:00:17
Will prefer drogba or ibra or eto . at least they are fit most of time.

4.) 09 Dec 2015 01:36:52
To be fair zimbo, pato has played nearly 50 games this calendar year. Least I read that. Scored 25 or so goals, don't know the exact number.

5.) 09 Dec 2015 07:59:43
Is there any hope of Ings returning this January, i am in agreement with Klop's direction, stop buying finished products, start COACHING those you have on ground and moving only those who are unteachable.

{Ed001's Note - Ings is out for the season.}

Always take some personal time on every anniversary to make sure they're always remembered, today I started writing and this was the result:

I was 8 years old when I saw it unfold,
31 year wait for the truth to be told,
96 of our angels, Liverpool's best,
Sadly laid their souls to rest,
It wasn't their time, it was so unfair,
But getting justice is our burden to bear,
We fight the battle, we set the tone,
For none of our family will walk alone,
As long as we're breathing we'll see justice done,
For a heartbreaking day that should've been fun,
The lies will unravel, the truth be told,
And we'll get justice for the young and old,
They're resting in peace now, their light shines bright,
And it's up to us to continue the fight,
The lark sings loud, the flames burn strong,
And for our 96 angels, we'll right the wrong.




10 Mar 2019 11:24:43
Question for Ed01 if possible. With Lallana starting today do you see him staying at Liverpool for longer than a lot of fans thought? I know it's only one game I would've thought Keita would be the obvious choice, or even Shaq. Just hope it doesn't bite us. I'm not in the Anti Lallana group don't get me wrong, he's just not the same player as he was before injury.


{Ed001's Note - Keita can be wound up, not the right choice for facing Burnley. Shaqiri is not tracking back any more, again not what you want against Burnley. It makes sense for this game, even if Lallana is not at his best. It allows the team to switch to 4 up or 3 up very easily.

As for his stay, it is Lallana that is the issue, he was keen on moving back down south. That was before the injury though, I am not sure if he is still feeling the same way. Klopp was not wanting to get rid.}

1.) 10 Mar 2019 12:33:49
He's done well so far. Worked hard, used the ball intelligently. Hopefully he can keep this level up for us in the run in.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 14:10:30
I know it was only one game but i thought he was superb. i've never been his biggest fan but if he can perform like that week in, week out, he needs a contract extension.

3.) 10 Mar 2019 15:02:54
He played very well today. Just can't see him staying fit long enough to play enough effective games. That was his first good game in 2 years.

4.) 10 Mar 2019 18:42:51
Lallana played very well today and hopefully, he can push on.



05 Mar 2019 23:57:24
Might be a bit of an ignorant question, I do apologise if it happens often, but has there been a golden gloves winner with higher points than a golden boots winner? I can't see it happening often but would be interested to know.


1.) 06 Mar 2019 07:58:28
I doubt it to be honest mate, think the CS record was Czech with something like 22. I’d bet that someone scored more goals than that in that season. Good question though.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 08:19:07
Think I read Cech got 24 in his debut season.

3.) 06 Mar 2019 19:42:56
I just looked it up Cobra and you’re right, Cech got 24 but Henry scored 25 goals.



04 Feb 2019 19:09:29
Hendo, Gini, both out tonight, Lovren out, bit nervous about this tonight. Lallana for me doesn't have it anymore, be it through injuries or whatever, shaq not been impressive starting recently either so maybe the thought is for shaq to come on for lallana as impact sub which he seems to do well? Fingers crossed lads.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 19:20:08
Wtf? Is this correct Ed001 that Gini and Hendo are now also injured mate? Christ this is getting bad now on the injury front. Both minor knocks I hope?

{Ed001's Note - stop stressing. It is not a big deal every team has these kind of knocks.}

2.) 04 Feb 2019 19:52:50
I am stressing though mate. Lallana looked terrible against Leicester, bench looks very weak also. Argh well I guess it is what it is.

3.) 04 Feb 2019 22:09:31
Truth be told, even rogers did not bottle it like the way Klopp is going about it. Rogers lost it at the end. this is becoming a nightmare. how can one sleep after such disappointment.

4.) 04 Feb 2019 22:13:09
Looked even worse vs WH, Lallana was.

5.) 04 Feb 2019 23:03:48
Telly, you need to give up the embarrassing posts, man. "Klopp has bottled it". On what grounds? Are we not still top or

"Even rogers did not bottle it like the way Klopp is going about it. Rogers lost it at the end. this is becoming a nightmare. how can one sleep after such disappointment. " Wow, what a drama queen. You need some Kleenex, a glass of water or a nap to calm you down? GET IT TOGETHER, man! We are still top until we NO longer are and that is what matters now cos we are struggling atm and the LAST thing we need now is a post like yours at this time.

{Ed033's Note - I don't know why the papers don't say it's all Putin's fault like they do with everything else. It's got to be the Russians hacking into something or other. :)

6.) 04 Feb 2019 23:28:43
yes, I don't like the way Klopp is going about things at the moment, I think the nerves are getting to him too,
I am very worried right now, the Injury to Gomez Lovren and Trent has hit us big time, we don't have the same power going forward, I just hope that we have not blown it,
we have to get points on the board otherwise it will be too difficult .

{Ed033's Note - Klopp won't be getting a Knighthood this year from the Queen, that's for sure. :)

7.) 05 Feb 2019 00:01:29
Ha Ed 033, Klopp might get his Knighthood, if he can win this League, when it looks like it's City's now .

8.) 05 Feb 2019 00:13:01
whats this about Putin, bet he is backing City, with all his dodgy money,
but really, we can still win this League .

{Ed033's Note - Yes, Putin is obviously hacking mojo from LFC and selling it to City. Very dodgy, 100% Fact :)

9.) 05 Feb 2019 01:46:55
Lallana was poor but his skill was class, the way he played milner in.



21 Dec 2018 04:41:43
Sitting in the airport bored so just thought I'd post. I think for me, the surprising thing this season is how many people have stood up and improved. The beginning of the season, with the new signings I couldn't see anything but the bench for milner but he is an absolute beast. Gomez is starting to become 50% of the strongest centre back partnership we've had in years. Shaq I really didn't think we needed and have happily been proven very wrong. Fab, klopp was right to ease him in gently and starting to look the real deal. Robbo, what can I say, becoming, if not already the best lb in the league. TAA still very young yet improving all the time. Gini seems to be finding the consistency he's been missing for so long and we're getting glimpses of the player he could be. Keita showing he can connect midfield to attack, needs a bit more settling in. Hendon as always, captain reliable. Even sturridge seems to want to prove his time at Liverpool is not quite done. I've purposely left out the front three as they carried us last season where as this season the rest of the team have taken a lot of the pressure off them. They seem like they're just about to click in to next gear and if that happens then we're in for a treat. All in all, very happy. Quick mention to lovren and Matip, delivered when called upon and look a lot more assured and that can only be because of my last two mentions, VVD and Alisson, what a difference these two have made. Absolutely outstanding.

Fingers crossed for three points tonight, not an easy game whatsoever but at the same time, I feel more confident going into games this season than I have for a long time. Anything is possible and Klopp has made us believe again. Let's enjoy the ride and see where it takes us. If I don't post again in the next few days, merry Christmas to all eds and reds, all supporters from other teams that read these sites, hope you all have an enjoyable and most importantly, safe Christmas.


{Ed001's Note - safe journey mate, enjoy your holiday.}

1.) 21 Dec 2018 04:47:10
Spot on post mate, hope you enjoy your time away and Merry Christmas to you too!

2.) 21 Dec 2018 05:02:13
Not holiday unfortunately, returned to Malta for a couple of days to see the missus and remember what the sun looks like, now on my way back to rainy Wales haha.

{Ed001's Note - ohhh sorry to hear that mate. Stay safe anyway and hopefully Wales will surprise you with a bit of sun.}

3.) 21 Dec 2018 11:22:40
I think you captured why this could just be the best Christmas yet.

I really hope he is not going to be rushed back early to try and relieve some pressure from Brendan on the hope he has a stormer and scores the winner, because if he is rushed back early, it will be more than likely he will pick up an injury in the warm up and be out until after christmas

Its similar to a rugby kicking game, because we use the high press effectively, it puts us on the front foot from the off.

I agree with one of the responses that it has to be someone who wants to play the same as we do now. If any of them truly want the LFC job when klopp goes, I'd love klopp to make it clear in a year, year and a half, that he will be leaving and whether it be Gerrard, Alonso or whoever else, worked as klopps assistant or shadow him rather, for a year and a half and then take the reigns from there, continuing what klopp has started. In an ideal world though I'd love klopp to sign til 2030.

Yes mate, genuinely true, he sent her a request this morning to reconnect but she ignored it. Her son and dad are season ticket holders there, lot of rumours during tonight's game against Newport but I won't mention them as I don't know which are true and which aren't but everything I said is god's honest truth.

Strange that ed mentioned the Anthony Grant story as it was only yesterday he was messaging my partner unwanted messages shall we say. She had to block him on Snapchat in the end and apparently he is like this with a lot of women so wouldn't surprise me if a complaint had been made.
