Good morning Eds. Liverpool as a club, since the Van Dijk incident or maybe before, I can't fully remember, tend to come out in the media and deny interest in players that we are being linked to.
Lines such as rubbish or no interest or agents whipping up interest have all been fed to the media, local in particular.
Is this a response to tapping up issues and showing that the club may have learned from this? It seems to occur when reporting comes to a head and selling clubs maybe thinking 'where has this all come from? ' Liverpool then tend to rubbish claims before any allegations are made. I'm not just talking about this window. although it's happened with Pp, De Ligt so far.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of this at all, sorry. The Pepe situation is that Liverpool contacted Lille directly as a result of an accusation that they had spoken directly to the player.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 13:43:27
We didn't tap him up, did we, ed002? At least I hope we've (Klopp especially) learnt our lesson and haven't done so.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that being the case. As far as I am concerned there have been recent discussions with three sides two of which have made offers - one multiple offers. None of this involves Liverpool.}

Thanks ed, it's good to hear we haven't broken the rules this time around.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think so.}

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.


1.) 25 Mar 2019 07:26:39
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.

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.

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.

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.}

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.

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.

A cause that helps with a tragedy that affects more people than you think. My wife and I lost a baby, our first- a boy, at nearly full term. Only time that I’ve been in a dark place, I’ll see if I can pop down and support.

Clyne played 4 games for us last year. Twice at right back and twice at left back. That may show us two things.
1. Klopp is willing to play him as cover for both positions
2. Klopp really doesn’t like playing him as cover for either position.
Jokes aside, I now think we’ll sign a full back. We may have gone into the season with Clyne (if really needed) and Milner, Lewis/ Larouci. Larouci has played one season of kids football as a left back. Lewis has played a number of positions and seems to have settled now, maybe he’ll cover that side in cups. Still leaves us short on the right, like we were in our so called sticky patch this year.


{Ed002's Note - Clyne will not be available for a while as he is injured.}

There should be a league table of diving players. It should be published on the back page of every national newpaper on a Sunday morning. Players accumulate 3 points for a dive they get away with. 1 point for a dive that the referee catches. If they dive 3 times in a match they should have to wear a ‘D’ symbol on their forehead during the next game. Think Rimmer from Red Dwarf.

Players in the top ten at the end of each month have to play one game without their right or left boot, the opposing fans get to decide via a twitter poll or text message to 80010. All proceeds go to the Tom Daley foundation.
Players in the ‘Champions League’ positions at the end of the season have to play the entirety of the next season in pink bubble wrap.

It surprises me that we haven’t had more full backs linked to us. Seem to be linked with every midfield and wide player in the world but less so in defence. Obviously we have Gomez and Milner who have played there and maybe we are waiting on what Lewis and Larouci can show. I think Hoever will play right back when/ if he reaches first team level, with Gomez, Van Den Berg, Matip, Lovren all blocking his immediate path and no sign of moving any of them on this season, but he is so young right now. Perhaps he’ll play centre back when, in his own words, he’s hit the gym for a few years and Matip or Lovren moves away.

There also Kenny Lala who we’ve watched who does and has played both full back positions at about a ratio of 2:1 right back versus left back; he would also not move to sit on a bench. Will be interesting to see what happens. I think Clyne will stay and Milner will cover the other side personally.
