premier league to start from 17th of june hope this news is true.


1.) 28 May 2020 15:41:41
its been reported on the bbc page. Man city vs Arsenal and Villa vs Sheffield utd, that will be followed by a full round of fixtures W/ C 19-21 june.

2.) 28 May 2020 15:59:41
Still not going to celebrate just yet, think the key will be the tests and results after contact training returns. If a small amount come back positive then I think we will be ok, a large amount or a high amount within one team and we will be back to square one.

3.) 28 May 2020 17:35:59
there is a virus ok but it’s blown out of proportion 4 people I’ve heard died 2 cancer 1 old age 1 heart attack and they were told they had the virus, get the ball rolling and it be forgotten!



20 May 2020 10:37:29
ed002 what do you expect to happen with Brewster. Do you think he has got what it takes to play at the very top. do you see him staying at Swansea next season or do you think he might get a loan move somewhere else.


{Ed002's Note - Throughout his career to date it has been expected that he would have a good future - then he got injured which has been a bit of a set back. I think a loan to Swansea again woud perhaps be a good solution - but what happens with the AFCON will be in the mind of the club. Everyone seems comfortable he has what it takes.}

1.) 20 May 2020 11:06:44
Thanks Ed was not sure if the injury was a bit Career refining with it being so bad. If we do make a move for Timo could you see a loan the other way for him as part of the deal.

{Ed002's Note - It came at a bad time.}

2.) 20 May 2020 14:19:23
Same could be said of paul glatze, he looks like he also has real potential.

3.) 20 May 2020 18:04:41
I think he has a future at Liverpool, he just needs to be patient and learn to play a number of roles in the forward line.

This virus maybe a blessing in disguise for him as we may hold back on buying a new forward.

4.) 20 May 2020 21:27:57
If we buy Werner then that pushes Brewster down the pecking order I’m afraid, also Divock is in front of him.

5.) 21 May 2020 08:17:27
It’s looking unlikely we will sign werner.



12 May 2020 10:06:01
ed002 do you think they should have all ready worked out what should be done if they cannot finish the season, plan for the worst hope for the best. All ways seems better to plan for all scenarios rather than acting on it in the last minute let the clubs know what all options are from the start.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, it should have been addressed.}

1.) 12 May 2020 11:23:59
Fail to prepare means prepare to fail.

2.) 12 May 2020 13:23:47
Ed002 is it still the plan to have cl and el in August. If so would it not be better to look to start the league in July them 3 or 4 weeks could make such a difference. The teams could start training in June. . Hopefully we should be a lot further forward in the virus by then.

{Ed002's Note - It will not be possible to complete the games in three or four weeks. The plan is still to play the CL and EL in August. And don't forget that tehre are FA Cup games that The FA want to complete by the end of the first week in August.}

3.) 12 May 2020 14:21:10
ed can I ask how they plan to do Cl and El games would they still be 2 legs as they can't have home and away with psg not allowed to play home games or will it be like a little tournament in one country turkey for cl not sure where the el final is to be held.

{Ed002's Note - They plan on playing out the missing second legs behind closed doors at neutral venues and then single leg games for the remaining ties at neutral venues. Locations were to be Russia and Turkey - but that needs re-thinking.}



20 Mar 2020 15:50:47
Mohamed Salah has reportedly donated £1.1m to help Egypt hospitals fighting against the Coronavirus. well done MO xx.


1.) 21 Mar 2020 06:32:28
I think he donates regularly to various charities.

2.) 22 Mar 2020 18:37:37
Not his biggest fan but good on him for that gesture.



10 Dec 2019 22:41:43
Ed001 do we have any interest in Minamino he looked Klopp type player in both games against us. not seen him play any more than them 2 games but the lad never stopped running and seemed to have a good football brain with the runs he made. I think he would be a great back up to Mane and salah.


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

1.) 11 Dec 2019 04:18:53
I was thinking a great back up to Firmino. But yeah.

2.) 11 Dec 2019 11:56:39
I would love Minimino. I think he would be a fantastic signing to provide injury cover and depth as well as help push for competition in the side. Only watched him twice, but thoroughly impressed, reminds me of Kagawa before he left Dortmund and ruined his careers.

I genuinely think Liverpool had one of the harder groups this year, Salzburg are a fantastic team and if they don't get ripped apart in the summer transfer window I could see them performing well again next season.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 17:12:50
Hopefully they can stop ManU back dooring another easy route to CL like a few years ago!

4.) 12 Dec 2019 08:54:50
You have seen only two games and think he would be good back up
that is some real dangerous scouting there mate lol
tbh he looks good but players often raise their game when playing a big team so to speak and so be careful after two games wanting to sign someone.

5.) 12 Dec 2019 09:22:07
Paul Joyce reporting this morning that we’ll try for him in January. Be a great signing if we could get it over the line.

6.) 12 Dec 2019 09:38:26
Morning eds n reds

Like all of you i've only seen him in the two games against us but he seems the sort of player klopp likes. he's quick, some skill and never stops running. Ed2, Janes Pearce is reporting we will bid for him. I know you have answered already, but is there any change.

Cheers all.

{Ed002's Note - Augsburg were keen in the summer and at one time Everton and Dynamo Moscow had scouts look at Takumi Minamino. His agent and a third party lawyer have held discussions recently with Werder Bremen about the player and seemingly Liverpool are interested, but I am not aware of any offer being made just yet.}

7.) 12 Dec 2019 09:42:04
just seen on sky sports we are in for him and he has a £7.25m release clause that would be a right bargain. in this day and age.

{Ed002's Note - Any "release clause" would be irrelevant for Liverpool.}

8.) 12 Dec 2019 09:56:13
There ya go now it's reported we are in for him for 7mil in the January window.

9.) 12 Dec 2019 09:56:45
According to Paul Joyce of the times Klopp is a driving force for a 7milliion move this January.

10.) 12 Dec 2019 11:12:54
ed002 is every release clause the same I know you have said in the summer about Julian Brandt release clause being for German clubs only but I don't get why Minamino would have one for the same league as he is in as he is all ready at the best club there.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation with realse clauses, buy out clauses and termination clauses on many occasions. Firmino had a €25M "release" clause but Liverpool paid far mor for the player.}

11.) 12 Dec 2019 11:57:26
Thanks ed2. Going to be a busy day for you .

31 May 2020 11:10:20
ed001 what do you think about the 5 subs. I don't like the idea of it for me will just be a time wasting thing after a couple of games most players who are playing will be back to full speed.


{Ed001's Note - it is coming in eventually anyway. It will make games more tactical and probably less exciting but it is the way it is going.}

1.) 31 May 2020 12:30:12
The game is constantly shrinking. I wonder how much of the 90 minutes is actually played? With throwings, injuries, corners, freekicks, penos, VAR and now 5 Subs. And only 3 minutes added on religiously.

2.) 31 May 2020 12:31:56
If it means we can get to see a few young players then. I’m all for it
Also it stops games hopefully going down to ten men because some one gets injured near to the end of a game.

3.) 31 May 2020 12:36:06
They usually add 30 seconds per substition at the end of the games anyway. So not much time can be wasted. I see it more of continuing to coddle players; those with slight knocks will have the option to go off.

4.) 31 May 2020 14:42:11
I thought that the 5 subs could only be played in three windows? So if you did three individual subs you couldn't make another as you've used your three opportunities. Plus if they go off at the nearest side f the pitch I think there will be very little time difference.

5.) 31 May 2020 14:46:41
ed001 growing up in the 80s international friendly's was still good games a lot of the time. But as soon as all the extra subs where brought in and England game in the first half could have been a really good game then came all the subs and it would just die. I for one really hope that it never goes to 5 subs it might make it more tactical but just get your tactics right from the start is the managers job.

{Ed001's Note - yeah I don't want 5 subs either.}



30 May 2020 17:12:25
ed002 once the pubs and cinemas open do you think fans in grounds will be far behind, As they say it is much harder to catch it outside. And have you heard anything on when they want to start next season am sure I heard second week in September what is about 15 weeks away. So without a second wave hopefully in that time if we keep the r below 1 it should be fairly low. I don't know how leagues 1 and 2 could start behind closed doors and am sure the way the government is moving they would expect nearly everybody back in work by then so it seems a bit hypocritical for everybody to go to work but have no social life.


{Ed002's Note - Pubs and the like will only open with social distancing and that is not something that is viable at football grounds. The drop dead date for starting next season is September 12 to ensure all fixtures can be played. I would not expect any crowds at football games through the end of the year.}

1.) 30 May 2020 19:50:24
ed002 with so much panic about this season god knows how many league 1 and 2 clubs will go bust without crowds for the first half of the season.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, it is something that the Premier League clubs should be helping out with by sharing more of their income. But not all clubs are for it.}



30 May 2020 15:31:45
ed002 with all the reports coming out about us not wanting to pay the £50+m for timo werner now because of the virus and reports we only want to pay £30m. I don't believe all this paper talk but out of interest what percentage about do you think players values have lost. Do you think even the very top players values will have gone down to.


{Ed002's Note - Many clubs will hang on to players if they cannot be sold for whatever asking price they have set (e.g. Mbappe). Some clubs are holding firm - Inter are not looking to drop the price of Martinez, Dortmund are will not sell Sancho on the cheap, Lazio are the same with Milinkovic-Savic etc.. Certainly prices have drop - an example being a €12M "to buy" option on a Chelsea player will be taken up but at perhaps only €6M or so. It will be case-by-case rather than a fixed amount.}

1.) 30 May 2020 16:32:28
I assume that’s Victor Moses?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Inter want to take up the option but at a lesser price.}

2.) 31 May 2020 09:19:05
Crazy to think he is still a Chelsea player!



29 May 2020 10:18:26
Ed's how will sky show the free to air games, will there be a new channel of free view.


{Ed002's Note - They will remove whatever lock they have on Channel x which says you need to subscribe for those games that are shown free.}

1.) 29 May 2020 15:34:20
when sky make games free to view they are usually shown on sky1 so only technically free to watch if you are a sky/ cable customer not sure if they will change this but more than likely not.

2.) 30 May 2020 09:15:40
It's a pity bt wouldn't follow suit, does anyone know if BBC or rte or any other channels will be showing any of the games live?



20 May 2020 10:23:46
Just like to wish ed025 and all the other blues a happy 25th anniversary.


{Ed025's Note - yeah thanks for that grino, and i hope you get everything karen brady wants mate.. :)

1.) 20 May 2020 21:47:30
Nice one Ed lol.

{Ed025's Note - you have to have a bit of a laugh grino even in these rough times, stay safe mate..

2.) 20 May 2020 21:52:25
Yes I second that Grino, happy anniversary Ed mate. Maybe next year will be your year for a pot or 2.

{Ed025's Note - i cant see it DTD but we all live in hope mate, beating the reds for once would be a good start though and thats as high as im aiming at the moment my friend..

3.) 20 May 2020 21:53:54
Ed025 I'm still waiting for you to adopt me.

{Ed025's Note - consider yourself adopted barry, you know your my favourite poster mate and a surrogate evertonian.. :)

4.) 21 May 2020 12:32:58
Happy Anniversary as well, Ed25. Please, enjoy the the cake laced with some crow I'm about to send you. As for Brady, I will leave history to judge her conduct through out this process. Enjoy your day, man.

{Ed025's Note - all is fair in love and football RM, a fair bit of stick will be given and recieved but thats just part of being a football fan especially on merseyside, as for miss brady the less said about that selfish cow the better mate..

5.) 22 May 2020 10:07:43
Right - Sorry to steal thunder Barry but what about me 25? 😬.

{Ed025's Note - i do love you drogie but me and barry have a special bond, we are basically blood brothers mate and if i had not been married to my lovely wife for 41 years i would be living over the brush with bazza in louth.. :)

6.) 22 May 2020 18:46:24
Clearly disappointed 25 mate but I have heard Barry’s reputation precedes him in Louth and surrounding villages 😍.

{Ed033's Note - I thought the special bond was Ed007:)

7.) 22 May 2020 19:00:52
Ed025 or should I call you Dad? You just brought a tear to my eye with that response to Drogie😢.

{Ed025's Note - i have that effect on a lot of people barry mate.. :)

8.) 23 May 2020 07:04:50
Ed025 "i hope you get everything karen brady wants" what sodomy followed by a donkey punch?

{Ed025's Note - leave karen alone KC, she is the voice of reason mate.. :)

ed002 4 of the 5 leagues have 20 teams so its only Bundesliga that have 18 and even with the carabao cup we do gain a few games with are Christmas and new year games. Am sure we started 18/ 19 season 2 weeks before most leagues but finished 2 weeks before them. is it hard for us to start later because of the carabao cup 2nd round seems to start before some leagues start. if so do you think its time for that to go like most other countries and have just 1 cup.


{Ed002's Note - Right - so the number of games vary per season as I said. If you compare how many games Leicester played in the season they won the league with how many games Manchester City or Chelsea played it will be around 10 less because of European competition. There are two cups to play for, replays again the likes of Plymouth etc., plus Liverpool are looking to work with a proposal for a pre-season tournament which requires the first team to be played - and it soon mounts up. Remember there is a third European tournament coming as well.}

ed002 do you think the top 5 leagues should try to get there leagues to start and finish at the same time then the transfer window would be easier to get in line. we seem to start before most of the other big leagues then finish before them the champions league final was a good point last season nearly 3 weeks between games.


{Ed002's Note - These are unusual circumstances so it is not possible now. The issue with the leagues is the number of games played varies, the winter break and the arrogance of the Premier League.}

RHLT I don't see that happening, Werner looks nailed on, been going on far to long this now. Shaquiri I think is gone as he wants more game time. Would not be surprised to see Origi go had a good season last season but has not pushed on this season and not done really anything this season when had his chances. Wilson might stay to fill the squad places and help with homegrown.

ed do you know what kind a clause werner has in his contract keep seeing we would have to pay £55m for him to be released does that mean he has a termination clause then. Or is it just one that has nothing to do with us.


{Ed002's Note - I don’t and you are absolutely right it would need to be a termination clause. The clause exists because of Bayern Munich, so might be indicative of what they would accept from elsewhere.}

I agree ed neutral venues would have been better. I think Brighton that was most vocal about it because of who they had at home with there form I would not of thought they would have won any of the big teams they had at home. But playing the other teams who they should play away would be more of an advantage. If I was a Brighton fan I would rather have that.


{Ed001's Note - not one team has fans that can be trusted to not turn up at the ground. Not one. But neutral venues are not much better, as the bigger teams have fans spread all over the country and they can be trusted just as little as the ones locally. It was different in Germany as, in the main, people there follow rules and obey. Not always a good thing, but at times like this it is.}

Ed002 After seeing all the beaches over the bank holiday saying that about football fans seems a bit of a joke. But to finish the league even though it’s not the right way to play games I think it’s the fairest way to sort everything out. Then next season is probably going to start this way and hopefully end the right way.


{Ed002's Note - I think to be fair all games at neutral venues would have been the answer - but some clubs complained about that.}

Critical games Ed it’s the end of the season cl and el places to fight for relegation to be sorted. Liverpool have nearly won the league but they have still got to win it not to many games that won’t be critical they have left one hell of a grey Area there and that’s before all the over stuff. So it looks like neutral venues then.


{Ed002's Note - As it stands right now the critical games will be the games between relegation contenders. Derbies are planned to be shifted and right now there will be no games at Anfield because it is seen the that the fans cannot be trusted. So Arsenal/Spurs, West Ham/Chelsea, etc. will be elsewhere.}
