Reading the digital rags this morning (not something I usually do) read real madrid put an offer in for manè I wouldn't be surprised as he is awesome but would be a massive kick in the nuts for salah if it was true I would definitely be more worried about losing manè than salah but I take it with a pinch of salt got to be flattered that our players are linked with other top teams.


1.) 14 Jul 2019 13:55:10
I don't think Hazard will appreciate playing second fiddle to Mane. Also Junior plays in the same position for Real also.

{Ed002's Note - But that is not where Hazard will be playing.}

2.) 14 Jul 2019 14:19:02
Will Hazard not be playing from the left of the front 3 Ed?

{Ed002's Note - That is not their plan right now.}

3.) 14 Jul 2019 14:45:33
Thanks Ed002 for clarifying. Do you think they are still interested in Mane for this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Yes. They want a left sided forward and interest in another option has faded.}

4.) 14 Jul 2019 15:55:50
doubt there is any chance we would be interested in selling. don't think madrid have 200 million £ for Mane.

5.) 14 Jul 2019 17:08:43
Sory Ed002, I know it’s not Liverpool but where do they plan on playing Hazard?

{Ed002's Note - AM.}

6.) 14 Jul 2019 17:58:04
How can they buy what they have and mane, and Barcelona have got greizmann and still looking at neymar! Madness in Spain.

7.) 15 Jul 2019 07:09:07
Not worried about Mane leaving at all. Real won't pay the asking price so its a non starter. If they are not willing to pay what Utd want for POgba, they can forget about Mane and do one coz Mane will be even more expensive.

8.) 15 Jul 2019 12:40:50
Was bound to happen the moment we hit the highest level of performance and started winning things. Happens to all the teams. Just a matter of the club tying down their players for as long as they anticipate needing them. And even then, it's not always a sure thing, as we're all seeing with the Griezmann and Neymar situations.

9.) 15 Jul 2019 12:41:04
Not worried in the slightest.



29 May 2018 11:10:31
Hearing we have bid 60 mill for alisson think karius is going to be leaving the club after saturday still prefer him over mings and would like to see him stay and fight but think there is more to it than just the errors any one else heared these or is it simply click bait my mates reading?


1.) 29 May 2018 11:19:17
If Karius gets sold I will be sick for the boy. What happened to YNWA? Klopp is loyal and won't sell him. All the papers are saying that we're going for Alisson but the eds are saying it's very very unlikely to happen so we will have to wait and see how've that turns out.

{Ed001's Note - when was the last time we signed a player I was desperate for us to sign? Sadly.}

2.) 29 May 2018 11:39:17
I remember an Ed said that Fabinho was a fav of him, last summer.

3.) 29 May 2018 11:43:22
If Karius leaves I would like to hope it’s not just a knee jerk reaction to his poor display the other night, he’s been pretty decent since coming in full time.

4.) 29 May 2018 11:53:38
Ed I think it's fair to say this transfer window won't be like any other we've seen, so hopefully we can break your curse.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed.}

5.) 29 May 2018 11:49:59
I know what you mean Ed1 mate it's the same with me, every time I get excited about a player it never comes off. So now I just pay no attention to what is said until it's done, unless of course one of you Eds were to say a deal is close with X player, then it's time to get a chufty.

If we get one of Fekir or Alisson then I'm happy, if we get both I'll be gobsmacked. Personal choice it'd be Alisson before Fekir for me.

6.) 29 May 2018 11:55:49
I hope is Karius leaves, it's because Karius wants to leave because I'd hate to see him kicked out.

7.) 29 May 2018 12:04:03
Keepers make mistakes and lose there positions unfortunately, and sadly for karius he dropped 2 big clangers in the biggest game of his life (and his teammates) .

He has to go.

8.) 29 May 2018 12:30:00
The problem is as a keeper its virtually impossible to regain the fans after such an event. Strikers can bang a hattrick in the first game after missing a game changing "sitter" or a midfielder can play out of his skin and take a vital game by the scruff of its neck in a cup game and the fans are all of a sudden back on side. a keeper would have to keep half a seasons worth of clean sheets and saved a penalty every game to get the fans back . hardest position in the world, I feel for him. but equally think he has to renounce his No.1 shirt to a new keeper, if he's got anything about him hell stay and fight/ learn with whoever comes in.

9.) 29 May 2018 12:37:25
Personally I still think Karius has potential, I'd bring in a new #1 and try to persuade him to stay as #2. He's very young and a year or two with us to build him back up could be good for both parties.

Either way, he's been pretty solid all year bar the final, and helped get us where we are.

10.) 29 May 2018 12:44:22
Maybe the solution for Karius is to go on loan to a Bundisliga club. That way he can get game time to build up his confidence in his home country and avoid the inevitable barrage of abuse from opposing fans over here.

11.) 29 May 2018 12:45:15
Perhaps this will be your lucky window ed and Fekir and Alisson will sign. I think you're overdue one of those windows tbh.

Although we got Firmino a couple of years back so that may well have been your lucky window;)

{Ed001's Note - fair point, that was probably all my luck used up. Though I had thought all my bad luck was used up when I got unlucky enough to meet Ed0333, judging by the weekend I still seem to have plenty left to spare.}

12.) 29 May 2018 12:53:21
I don't believe karius has to go at all. I am more than happy to see him as our keeper next season. He has been pretty good since he took the top spot from mingolet. I absolutely don't think we need to discard him after one bad game. All keeper's have bad game's at some point. I think our support is warranted for another season at least.

13.) 29 May 2018 13:21:48
The thing with Karius is he looks like and is a mistake waiting to happen. If you look at him from his Mainz days, you can see there is a fundamental flaw. Diving on a ball he can just pick up, punching when he should be catching, trying to come for a ball that he should never attempt to come for.
I watched a few of his performances back then and I was really worried when Klopp signed him. However trusted that I might have got it wrong. Every other top team in England has a steady eddy keeper, the worst is cech. We need an upgrade.

14.) 29 May 2018 13:24:14
Sometimes we have to take our rose tinted glasses off. although karius has done better since coming back there has still been a lot of near misses from him that he's been lucky to get away with.

All the top teams have "world class" keepers and karius is not at that level.

15.) 29 May 2018 13:37:46
Brisbane I feel for Karius I really do. The goalkeeper is the most important position for me. If there is any chance of getting Alisson we've got to go for it. I wouldn't bin Karius but he'd definitely be relegated to No.2 . Both mistakes on Saturday we're unacceptable for me 1. He's got to look for the easiest ball to play and in my view that was Robertson he chose to play a riskier option. 2. No top level keeper should be beaten from that distance. 3.He made at least 1 error in both legs against Roma . These are the 3 biggest matches he'd played in his life and he showed, for me in my opinion that he's not got the concentration to be a world class keeper. I don't blame him for losing by the way all my vitriol is saved up for Ramos.

16.) 29 May 2018 13:44:27
Based on what I have read and seen of Klopp in the last 2.5 years, I would tend towards him backing and keeping Karius. Klopp simply does not seem to be the knee-jerk reaction type of guy (the Caulker loan, aside) . However, he's not a one-man show when it comes to decisions. There are people above him and below him that will have an opinion that he may or may not listen to. If Karius does leave, then I think it will be more his own decision than anything else. It's been a few days now. And still very little show of support from his team mates, from the moment the game ended until now. Far more support from non-LFC sources. Why stick around in such an environment?

17.) 29 May 2018 14:08:54
I think sometimes you need to be ruthless in terms of decision making. Whilst I feel bad for Karius, this isn't the first error he has made and we need to be able to rely on our keeper going forward.

He was lucky that the Kolarov shot never went in against Roma and has made a few errors in the league, I think we were relieved that we got rid of Mignolet after 4 years, but is Karius much of an upgrade? Unfortunately not.

We need to go all out for Alisson.

18.) 29 May 2018 14:27:26
Eds I have absolutely no clue really how to judge a keeper other than i notice when they're doing stuff badly. Everyone, including yourselves, seems to rave about allison being almost up there with david de gea though so i was wondering what makes hime so good? i've only seen a couple of youtube clips and one thing i noticed was that he seems to palm quite a lot of shots into the middle of the area?

{Ed001's Note - positioning, agility, speed of coming off his line, dealing with crosses etc. All keepers palm the ball back out these days for some reason.}

19.) 29 May 2018 14:29:16
Honestly I really like Karius, he has the worst luck as that will probably be the worst match he ever plays and happens to be a CL final.

Think he has potential though and i thought he was good in the prem, It hurt yes but we move on and YNWA.

If he leaves I hope its down to his own personal decision and not the club kicking him out that would be horrible.

If he stays ill be happy and has my full support, would love for him to prove all the people talking sh*t about him wrong. If he leaves i still hope he has a good career and proves people that he can be a top class Goalie!

20.) 29 May 2018 14:35:14

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

21.) 29 May 2018 14:50:19
Fans talk like this was a one off with Karius. He's had about a dozen games like this. He was out the team for a year because he kept making blunders. It wouldn't be a knee-jerk reaction just the final straw. He's had half a good season but made more mistakes than I would like. Yes he's young but I don't see a GK that will save you games when I see Karius. It has to effect the defence too when they're unsure which Karius is behind them.

22.) 29 May 2018 15:01:43
Another quick point on the importance of the goalkeeper. Our last 2 European Cup triumphs were won by our keepers Dudek's double save and Grobellar's antics on the goal-line during the shootout. Both men showed bottle composure and concentration huge attributes for a keeper at the time it was needed most.

23.) 29 May 2018 15:19:00
Get Allison keep Karius and Ward Migs and Bogdan to go.

24.) 29 May 2018 15:35:58
And dudek was terrible 😁 but yeah I think if we are to go for a keeper a loan move would probably be the best shout for Karius. He will be massively under the spotlight with us if and until he has established himself as a consistent top quality international keeper. He is very young and does have potential but at the same time does not seem ready mentality as much as anything. His reaction to this is massive. It will either break him or make him. Learn from his mistakes.

25.) 29 May 2018 15:37:55
We need to strengthen the squad elsewhere, our game plan should not change because of one player goes off like Salah. Instead of working out the 70m on Allison, I would prefer we go sign some players to add some depth. Karius made some amazing saves along with two amazing errors. He is 24, Allison is 25 and will be turning 26 this year. Let Karius have one more year and see how he develops. Mistakes are good learning opportunities let's see how Karius progresses.

26.) 29 May 2018 15:39:04
In reply to OP. No bid for him has been made.

27.) 29 May 2018 15:53:56
After Karius came back in our defence improved but that has to be weighed up by the VVD effect. Yes I think Karius is better than Migs, but he’s error prone and when your fighting for trophies and titles you need a keeper that can win you points/ games not cost you them. How many points has De Gea won for Utd.
I’d like us to sign a keeper who gives me confidence rather than give me a heart attack every time he comes for a cross or something. Yes they will cost a lot of money, but money well spent IMO. Karius or Ward as #2.

28.) 29 May 2018 16:26:52
because of the swerve and movement of the new ball most keepers are now taught if you can't get your body behind it then parry. karius would have parried that shot had his confidence knocked. you could see him in two minds. im not sure what achterburg is upto but he was awful at tranmere.

29.) 29 May 2018 17:00:49
I don't slate players but for me Karuis should go. Not because of one terrible performance but for me i have never seen evidence he is good enough. That would be fine but with exception of the final he doesn't seem to care enough about the mistakes he makes. YNWA is great but shouldn't be a hindrance.

30.) 29 May 2018 20:57:55
Lerchy, whilst I’m personally of the opinion that no keeper has significantly improved under Achterberg’s watch (unlike De Gea wih United for example) and that keeper coaching role should be under the spotlight, the performance of a coach in their playing days is insignificant surely? - Look at Klopp, average/ poor player by his own account and now arguably the best coach in the world. I know Klopp seems to like and trust Big John but his coaching credentials have to be re-evaluated sooner or later surely?

What happened to this GK director (? ) we brought in Eds, I know it was said that Big John was still running the show, but does this new guy actually have much input in the first team keepers? Cheers.

31.) 29 May 2018 23:07:51
while I wouldn't want any other manager at Liverpool right now, as we are on an amazing journey,
Klopp needs a 2nd man with him who is not a yes man,
the way Klopp messes up with his subs is very poor most of the time,
maybe he is still learning, but we could have won at least another 4 or 5 games, had he made the right subs, the Chelsea game springs to mind,
but, like I said, its Klopp who is the man taking us on this amazing journey,
may it continue .

32.) 30 May 2018 17:03:14
I don't think anyone is surprised it happened just surprised it manifested itself in the CL final.

What we need costs mega a good keeper has 15-18 clean sheets a season Karius had 10, our GF with Mo and Co covered a big problem Liverpool shouldn't need to score over 2 goals every game which was the case in far to many games last season.

An investment of £75-£80 for a keeper is a big hunk of change or is it, we are Liverpool on the lookout for a keeper so you're getting your pants taken down, it is what it is, add in the age of the keeper and the reluctance of his club to sell, our competitors would / will pay it if needed.

If it works out that the backbone and stability of our defence which gets VVD Robbo TAA and Dejan all singing from the same hymn sheet costs Liverpool £15/ 17 million a year virtually guaranteeing CL football every season the investment of £80 million in a first class keeper shouldn't be a problem it's a necessity.

What's james Milner's future looking like I know there is no crystal ball but has he shown any interest in management I know he has a boring reputation but you can't argue with his achievements and do liverpool have options available for players to progress within the club after the playing career is over.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 22:23:33
I think he is management material. He's boring because he is consistent. But he's also pretty funny on twitter. That tells me he gets on well with everybody. He sacrafices his game for the betterment of the team, playing left back. I think he'd make a great manager.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 23:12:07
Thanks Ed. She said what I said in the post about Coutinho and salah which went against everything you were telling us. I know who I believe. Clearly she has no real intel. Will take what she says with a pinch of salt.

{Ed002's Note - So she says Coutinho is still at Liverpool?}

3.) 06 Feb 2020 08:37:52
Haha no. She said no one saw the Coutinho transfer coming when it happened as he had shown no inclination to leave and almost as though the Barcelona bid came out of no where. Also said salah is making no noise about wanting to leave either. Both contradict what you have been telling us. Anyway I get the point - she’s full of crap.

{Ed001's Note - I like Melissa Reddy but I have seen little sign of her having inside info from Anfield. It is not easy to get these days to be fair, but suggesting the Couts deal came out of nowhere is ridiculous. I had months of memes about it ahead of the deal being sent to me. Everyone knew he was going there for 6 months and I was getting derided for saying I thought we would be better without him as he was holding us back.}}

4.) 06 Feb 2020 18:44:47
Spot on, Ed01. I remember Macca suffering the same pathetic, reprehensible insults when he was saying the VVD and Keita would sign and cos they did not sign for us quick enuff, some on here threw their toys out of the pram like spoiled, petulant brats. Both eventually signed for us BUT of course, these people would not bother to show their faces on here and apologize. Typical.



30 Jan 2020 22:22:22
Ed002 I finally understand what you mean when you say we are buying the league I didn't really get it before but it sank in properly today I get it now but with the 1st team developing so well can you see a turn of focus towards the youth programme and the future of them being brighter than in recent years or are liverpool happy with the standards they have now I know it's been commented on that we have improved but surely that is just a starting point and not the finished article.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have traditionally failed the youngsters primarily due to the lack of plans for progression being put in place. Right now, they are still behind the curve but are improvimg slowly.}

1.) 31 Jan 2020 22:18:26
Every team tries to buy the league.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 10:47:55
Every team buys players so therefore de facto are trying to buy the league. It’s the mix of academy players and buying players who are not yet world class which dilutes the attitude to the club.

Klopp has spent money on only 2 world class player but for the rest had improved the player to make them world class (or closer to it) . I’d argue that Virgil and Alisson have always improved to another level.

{Ed002's Note - If you don't understand then it is best to say nothing.}



08 Jan 2020 12:59:18
Just finished see you next Tuesday podcast it was brilliant thank you Ed001, Ed666 and alli ed 1 I would need counselling after that berger chat it's the most I've laughed in a long time I had to google fart in a colander and the irish party leader but absolutely genius and definitely champions of the world ed1 nice rendition

Another thing I maybe on my own but I do want us to win the FA cup aswell I don't think we have to sacrifice anything as the winning mentality the team have should drive us and a loss in any circumstance could unsettle us.


{Ed001's Note - really glad you enjoyed it, it did end up being a lot longer than we had intended, even after I edited out the 3 hours that Ed666 was laughing too hard to speak. We had intended to just get me ma on to talk about the podcast she is doing with me, but I don't think we even got round to talking about it as she got caught up on the Paddy Berger talk.

And yes mate, I defo need counselling!}

1.) 08 Jan 2020 15:01:08
When's the next installment of ask the Ed mate? I absolutely love that.

{Ed001's Note - my parents go back home tomorrow, so I intend to get back to normal with recording the pods after that. So at the latest next week it will be out. And really glad you enjoy them mate.}



27 Dec 2019 09:24:40
Ed001 just on trents performance am sure you were singing about him on podcasts maybe take that role off ed666 (sorry buddy) because it maybe a new lucky ritual 🤩.


{Ed001's Note - well it has been said I have the voice of an angel by absolutely no one so I think you are right, I should do all the singing! These days I do seem to spend all day long singing Liverpool songs, so may as well add that into the pods!}

1.) 27 Dec 2019 10:39:54
Don't Ed, just got some new headphones for Christ sake, quite good ones as well apparently! Let's not break them just yet eh? . Please? ;) .

{Ed001's Note - you know you would love to hear my singing!}



05 Dec 2019 23:28:07
Did you ever do an article on peter crouch ed seems an interesting guy had me laughing last night.


{Ed001's Note - not yet I haven't mate.}

I'm more intrigued that mane is on half of salah and miles behind bobby I'd of thought the three should be on similar money I know the yearly salary is more than I could earn in a lifetime but I would be pissed if someone joined my place of work after me does the same job and earns double what I do doesn't seem right.

I think brewster needs to move on for the sake of his career maybe we put a buy back clause in his sale but I think we are hindering his progress which is a shame really as I like the kid and see a decent future for him but I don't think we can afford him the game time he deserves and requires to become the player we know he can be.

Thanks ed I will be gutted if gini leaves such an essential part of our team over the last couple of seasons and really work hard hopefully team mates will convince him to stay (if it is his decision obviously)

Wow I really thought gini was happy with us ed I knew he was rumoured to leave last summer but thought that had passed with his performance really picking up is it the club want him replaced or that he wants to leave sorry if this has been covered it's the first I've heared since last summer (really hoping ed2 doesn't give me the RTFP but if I deserve it I will take it on the chin 🙈)

Let's be honest he can't get into a declining Barcelona squad what chance has he got getting into European, world and (potentially) domestic champions team. as a team we have massively improved since pipco left he was average but was given the space by others to shine and with that looked good but now we have genuinely great players on the field and warming the bench in each position pipco could play.

Juices quote says it all it's a lack of respect from scrots who don't hold any value of what it is to be a human being and unfortunately these are the voices that get heard decent people with no controversy are not news worthy.


{Ed001's Note - very true and Redplanet is completely missing the point. Ferguson was the first to get in touch with LFC after Hillsborough. He was always extremely helpful to the families as well. If you are stupid enough to believe that giving people nasty abuse is ok over a game, then whatever Fergie did is irrelevant. It is just an excuse by people like Redplanet to excuse a group of morons with no morals or respect.}
