Ox DONE DEAL - 35 MILLION. Medical to take place at Englands training ground. Been tweeted by his management team and Pearce. Welcome to LFC.

I’m in Disneyland Paris. I took my girls to a lunch where all of the princesses walk around while you’re eating and have photos and sign autographs for the kids. Just as my eldest was waiting for Ariel, a man walks past and I give him a nod, he nods back and I stand up to help him through with his baby in his arms. He thanks me and we chat for a moment, he promises to beat Utd in the quarters and moves on without being noticed by anyone at all. Luis Suarez. Couldn’t believe it.

Lucky that you came away unscathed I would say.

2.) 25 Mar 2019 07:42:58
Are you sure that was his kid and not a take-out?

3.) 25 Mar 2019 08:43:09
Barnesybob. In the real life version of that event were you really that calm? Kudos to you my friend.

4.) 25 Mar 2019 10:38:29
Ahhhh but I bet it cost you an arm and a leg eh mate ;) .

SGRed, post of the week!

great story barnesybob.

Chelsea’s midfield next year - Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic. All playing under Napoli’s ex manager. I think we can safely say we have lost Harry to Chelsea Rumours this season.


{Ed0333's Note - Harry’s either masturbating right now or self harming.

1.) 08 Aug 2018 17:44:43
🤣 classic Ed0333.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 16:33:50
ROFL 🤣 Ed0333.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 16:47:24
Classed as the same thing in some quarters Ed.

{Ed0333's Note - True dat my friend.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 17:09:46
Or both simultaneously Ed0333.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m assuming he still has two hands so quite possible.



20 Jun 2018 17:19:12
Ed002, I hope your travels are going smoothly. From what I understand both Liverpool and Real Madrid had 2 ‘lists’ for their GK targets this year. Liverpool’s have been dealt with on this page quite a bit. With Madrid signing Lunin and seemingly Alisson soon, it’s a couple struck from Liverpool’s targets.

I’m happy to send this to a different page if you like, but it seems Liverpool’s targets are being affected by Real Madrid’s activity quite a bit. With Strakosha being the other on the ‘2nd’ list, but being priced at £35million (ish) do you think Liverpool will just be looking to bring in the one ‘keeper?

Navas will obviously be feeling a bit pushed out and Strakosha would have to be first choice at that price. Perhaps one of these 2. I assume the plan was to sell 2, bring in 2 but being open to 1 in 2 out and looking to Grabara as third choice.


{Ed002's Note - Well, Lunin was the other GK that Liverpool were interested in as I explained. Liverpool will need to go in to next season with three rather than four GKs. I expected them to release Bogdan but they haven't. Ward has the interest of Swansea and hopefully Liverpool will give him the opportunity to get his career back on track if he has no future at Liverpool. The fans have done for Karius as you know. If he were to stay, and had an opportunity, and made a single mistake then I dread to think what would happen. Mignolet was of interest to Napoli but they are embroiled in figuring out otehr solutions. So I don't know. Whatever Real Madrid do will not impact Liverpool. Macca has said Butlan is the man and maybe he is. We will see. Lunin would have been a good addition but the club and the fans seemingly only want expensive solutions - maybe at the behest of the owners. It has been made clear to me that Brugge already have the goalkeeping bargain of the summer in their signing of Karlo Letica.}

1.) 20 Jun 2018 19:02:15
Thanks Ed, I really appreciate your replies. Lunin certainly does look like a player with enormous potential and great current ability. I hope he gets time and the environment to develop at Madrid and wish him well. I’ll take your word on Letica, not even come across him before to be honest. You have some good little birdies in your ear. I imagine you being a bit like the eunuch from Game of Thrones. Of course, I’m sure you’ve never seen it.

{Ed002's Note - Indeed I have never seen Game of Thrones.}

2.) 20 Jun 2018 19:08:13
Cheers for the update Ed2.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 19:18:50
Varys, great show, great books and great character.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 19:52:11
Ed2 is the queen of thorns, Ed1 is Ser Barristan Selmy.



12 Jun 2018 09:53:48
I’ve used the search function and read a lot of opinions on Nick Pope. I haven’t managed to find any evidence of genuine interest in him though.

I appreciate that we had/ have interest in Navas and Alisson. I also understand Macca believed we were interested in Butland but we may have changed course. Now it’s being reported that we have taken a step back from Alisson because of the price. People won’t agree with this but that’s good in my eyes, too much money on a player who, like Pope has had one good season, in a different league, albeit he is more suited to our style of play.

So do we know who was further down the list so to speak? Is there interest in Pope, will we go back to Butland? If what Macca said is true, and I was Butland, there’s no way I’d sign for a club after looking for houses and then the club says ‘actually we’re going to look for a better option because our keeper had a Weston in the UCL final. ’

Maybe Navas will be looked at once the merry go round begins? Is that the expectation now? I understand if you simply cannot know but maybe we could have an article on goalkeepers? Thanks.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 10:11:43
Ed001, I was going to start another thread, but I might as well piggy back on this one. I've seen various people talking about Pope and why he may be a good or better option than Butland etc. My question is what is your opinion of him as a keeper? We seem to have a crop of English keepers who people rate higher than they should because they are English, and Pope, I think, falls into this category. Like Pickford, when he played for Sunderland, got lots of exposure (or exposed lots of times) and looked better than he seems to be. Put them in a more progressive team, where they get less protection and have to make better decisions and their flaws get exposed.

{Ed001's Note - I did a player profile on him a few weeks back: HERE

2.) 12 Jun 2018 10:13:27
I don't mind doing an article on keepers mate. Might try a new writing style I've been playing around with.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 10:49:52
Sound like Adam’s on it. Thanks, I know we share similar views on Pope. Perhaps you could throw in something on how important it really is to have a keeper to fit a team. distribution or whether it’s better to have an Oblak (who also plays in a defensive team) who is great or a run of the mill keeper who fits better.
Alisson, although capped by Brazil a few times before his move to Roma, has had his best season this year at 25. Could there be 2 keepers coming? Karius and how he continues.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 12:29:38
English, Adam?

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:40:53
Cheers ed, must’ve missed that one. Pretty much tallies in with my thoughts exactly. Makes a good highlight reel, but would be frustrating a lot of the time when his all round game is called in to question.

{Ed001's Note - spot on mate.}



01 Jun 2018 08:09:19
When is the GK carousel going to start turning then? I seem to remember Ed002 saying this year would be likely. Great call.

Alisson, Oblak, Meret, Leno, Courtois, Cillessen, Lunin, Perrin, Butland, Mignolet, Navas, Donnarumma. The year of the Goalie.

Just by that list we’re looking at new keepers (or back up keepers) for Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan, Udinese, Roma, Leverkusen. Oh, and Zorya Luhansk and Stoke. Fair bit of competition there.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 08:26:38
Forgetting Reina, Buffon, PSG, Napoli and Inter.

2.) 01 Jun 2018 08:45:03
Mignolet is so out of place in that list.

3.) 01 Jun 2018 11:27:01
DaRedMan, actually it's odd man out ;)

4.) 01 Jun 2018 11:55:58
According to german reports Leno is going to sign for Napoli and Hradecky (ex-Frankfurt) already signed for leverkusen.

Also Leno has a release clausle of 25mil € till the end of june if im not mistaken so he is moving this month 100%.

5.) 01 Jun 2018 11:49:41
Maybe Bogdan will join that list! 😂.

Spurs are interested, especially if Eriksen leaves. They also have interest in Lo Celso. I don’t know if they want both. This has been on this site.
Any other information I’ve read is conflicting, I agree. No two sources are saying the same thing.
Type ‘Chiesa’ into the search bar to see Ed002’s comments on him.

He looks like Legolas had a kid with Dave Pirner.

The Express are just about the worst. What they will do is pick up any story from around the world, attribute a sensationalist headline to it, then publish it.

You know a lot of papers have transfer ‘whispers’ lists? The kind even they know are not true? Well the Express is a whole transfer whispers rag.

To the person who asked about Pope. If you could guarantee that he would always be as good (or improve) as he was this season then I would definitely say yes to him. But we can’t, and I just wonder if it’s one of those English players who has a good year and then Liverpool buys them to save some money. I do like him though, best English keeper in my opinion.

Heaton or Pope. Whatever one that Burnley doesn’t want.? Not Hart though.

Probably not. But maybe Henrichs. It looks as though Monaco will probably get themselves out of trouble and he’ll stay there seeing as he only signed last year. Can’t think of many who can do both, at least to a good standard.

I see what you’re both saying, I think you’ve misunderstood Ed though. Ed is saying we need more points than City to win the league, we only have to do the same as them for the rest of the season. But winning and forcing them further behind obviously helps us to achieve the points needed to better their final points tally sooner and for all our benefit. The team will be insisting on a must-win mentality here on out I would imagine and rightly so. Ed didn't mean free hit in the way it’s probably easy to construe. He’s saying we don’t have a desperate need to be 7 points clear, but we do have a desperate need to stay in front. Telling the team that though would be a bad idea.

Hope the break benefits us. Going to feel like a long time until that Leicester game. City play four times before we even play again, although one game may feature a few of their under 9s to see if they can handle the pressure of holding on to a 9-0 lead.

Hoping for no new injuries and for the injuries to clear in time for our next batch of games.
