I'm sure this is all just hype after the couple of transfers to China, but Balotelli has been linked with a move to China.

Is there anything in this Eds?


{Ed001's Note - his agent would certainly like to get him a move out there, no idea if any of them are interested in him. They have shown little interest in lazy layabout players so far.}

1.) 20 Feb 2016 08:12:14
If they could potentially get him a deal would any China club pay us or would Milan buy him cheap and sell on straight away?

{Ed002's Note - Either way if it were to happen.}

2.) 20 Feb 2016 16:53:42
I'd be happy either way!

3.) 21 Feb 2016 04:54:50
Do you think his agent (Mino Raiola? ) will push for him to move out there? Surely it would be the best chance of a big payday for both agent and player? As well as probably the best financial option for Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - he will move here where he can get the best deal, which is likely to be China.}

Gary Mac confirmed first team coach.


1.) 11 Jul 2015 11:07:22
Great news! Garry Mac Garry Mac, Garry Garry Mac

2.) 11 Jul 2015 12:31:13
Great news knows our club and brings passion and professionalism

3.) 11 Jul 2015 16:18:57
Chuffed to bits, Class on and off the pitch he won't be doing any embarrassing shampoo adverts with Henderson either !

4.) 11 Jul 2015 18:05:17
Flash, I think Gary Mac used Wash & Go!

5.) 12 Jul 2015 01:02:44
Aye, he washed and it went!



31 May 2015 14:57:54
Eds, is Balotelli still of interest to Lazio in a loan to buy?

Also is there interest in Borini from Fiorentina?



{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will look to sell Balotelli in the summer but they need to reduce the price they are asking by some way. A number of clubs were approached in January but none were interested in a permanent deal at the price being asked. I suspect his representatives will focus on a return to Italy although have said how happy he is at Liverpool. Last year a sponsor tried to place him with another side once Milan were pissed at him and wanted him out - but that would no longer be an option. An alternative may be a Turkish side. Fiorentina and Inter were both open to discussing a deal for Balotelli - but the asking price has killed any chance of that, but Sampdoria would be interested in taking him on loan, or perhaps to buy at the right price. We'll see what happens.

Lazio were showing an interest in Borini, but it is unclear if they will push for a move. His representatives are aware that they need to look for options.}}

1.) 31 May 2015 15:12:02
Kovacic for balotelli would have been rreally Great :'-( Ed2 Do you know if the talk about the second bid for kovacic was bull ir something genuine?? If not are we still interested

{Ed002's Note - I explained about the bid and the joke made.}

2.) 31 May 2015 15:22:17
Thanks Ed002.



25 Jan 2015 16:18:28
Hello Eds, I don't usually get any info from people, regarding Liverpool, but I do have a friend who lives in Italy who is apparently close to someone at Lazio and he thinks they're in for Balotelli. Just wondering if you had heard anything of this sort?



{Ed002's Note - Lazio would be interested in Balotelli on a loan deal or at a price which is 35% of the asking price. There is no offer on the table but they may try to tempt Liverpool.}

1.) 25 Jan 2015 16:46:02
Eds surely the club know where going to have to take a loss on him

{Ed002's Note - The club have a price in mind - this has been done to death.}

2.) 25 Jan 2015 19:12:41
I would take the 35% and be grateful to get that much.

3.) 25 Jan 2015 19:51:44
We bit the bullet with Carroll. Looks like we will have to do it again.

4.) 25 Jan 2015 20:16:20
Hi Ed's, Ballotelli is a quality player, just not suited to the style of Liverpool. I assume that rather than unwilling he is unable to adapt to the demands of the team. Also being a high profile player with a massive ego, the danger is he will bring negativity to the dressing room. With so many young players in the squad, that is something we could do without. Therefore, a compromise for his exit should be reached.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool would be happy to see him move on but I am not sure who the compromise would be with?}

5.) 26 Jan 2015 04:30:50
I'm shocked. Thanks Ed002, I guess if I hear any more I'll pass it on. Hopefully this isn't just a lucky guess from him lol.

6.) 26 Jan 2015 15:54:59
This is Nonsense. We played our best game against spurs. Sterling, Balotelli, Sturridge.

{Ed001's Note - so what is your point? We have been hawking Balo around for months now, so what is that to do with one, yes one, good performance?}

7.) 26 Jan 2015 17:49:38
The team performance against Spurs was good, but was Balotelli? 5 shots, 2 on target, 0 goals, 0 assists, an astonishingly bad 50% pass completion and hauled off at 60 minutes for Markovic.



01 Aug 2014 01:25:53
Hello Eds, any interest in Jovetic? I've always like him as a player since he smashed us at Fiorentina in the 2009/10 CL.
And given he's barely had a look in at City, mainly due to injury of course, I thought he may possibly be on the cards to leave City.

Sorry to just throw a random name out there Eds, I know even if he is available, he may be too expensive but there is no harm in asking I guess? ^_^



{Ed001's Note - nope.}

How did we finish 3rd after that horrendous season?


1.) 23 May 2021 20:12:46
In fairness the season wasn’t the worst I can think of. But it’s definitely proof that Klopp is the best man for the job.

Van Dijk (33 games missed)
Gomez (31 games missed)
Matip (28 games missed)
Keita (28 games missed)
Jota (19 games missed)
Henderson (17 games missed)
Thiago (14 games missed)
Fabinho (8 games missed)

And yet here we are back in the champions league.

2.) 23 May 2021 20:14:03
Because no matter why Sky Sports say, the Premier League is not the best league in the world. As you say hsf, how could we still be the 3rd best team in the country given our New Year form.

To lose, at home, to very poor teams like Fulham, Burnley, Everton etc you could argue that we didn't deserve to qualify. But that old saying, the table doesn't lie, has to apply here too. We got the points on the board.

What you can say for definite is that the 3/ 4 teams behind us are clearly very poor. Suits me tho! Chuffed to bits we made it into Top 3! On to next season!

3.) 23 May 2021 20:30:37
Great result for us under the circumstances. Must admit I didn't envisage it even a few weeks ago! Onwards and upwards and hopefully next season can be a more enjoyable one!

4.) 23 May 2021 20:38:02
It wasn’t a horrendous season. It was a horrendous 6 straight losses at anfield. We were top of the table until around xmas and have won 8 and drawn 2 of our last 10 games.

I know it’s not as simple as this, but had we won 4 or 5 of those lost games at anfield, we’d of been within 3-6 points of city.

5.) 23 May 2021 20:49:48
We were top of the league at Christmas, had a rough 2 months but finished strongly, we finish where we deserve to finish. The team below us are in the Champions League final, there’s not a stronger league in the world right now.

{Ed0666's Note - I still think if we had VVD and one of Matip or Gomez we’d have won the league

6.) 23 May 2021 22:20:59
Macko were you watching the same tournament kidda?

{Ed0666's Note - does macko realize theres was a universal pandemic?

7.) 23 May 2021 21:52:23
I don't think there has been a stronger league for a long time than the Premier League.

8.) 24 May 2021 08:04:16
Macko - we had that form in the NY but ended the season with 9 losses.

Dortmund in Germany, 3rd with 10 losses (and only 34 games)
Atalanta in Italy, 3rd with 6
Barcelona for Spain, 3rd with 7
Monaco in France, 3rd with 8

If you're going to make up a point at least glance around the world to see if it holds up first, most leagues have similar numbers of losses for 3rd spot to us.

9.) 24 May 2021 08:40:54
I honestly think it's more than just the injuries though. I believe that the players were both mentally and physically drained, as we'd quite literally been playing at 110% capacity for 2 entire seasons, just to keep up with and over take City.
The injuries are probably because of sheer energy that our players expended over those two seasons too.

My hope is that next season we will have a much fitter squad, with some additions that will help towards negating this seasons issues in future.



23 Jan 2021 17:43:12
So many posts saying "the league is gone"

Are you mad? Did we not lose out to city when we were 10 points clear at christmas the other year? Do people forget that other teams will probably (most likely) drop points?

Historically we've never done things the easy way. So just chill out and let it play out.


1.) 23 Jan 2021 17:49:32
You don’t win the league drawing as many as we have and looking at the way we’re playing I can’t see where our next goal is coming from, let alone a win, whereas City and United are scoring and winning games.

2.) 23 Jan 2021 18:06:15
I agree that other teams will drop points, but so will we.

3.) 23 Jan 2021 18:18:38
Leicester won it with 81 points and they drew 12 times!

Every season is different and its far too early to say what it'll take to win it. I can't name a team who hasn't had a drop in form at somepoint this year.

We are still in the hunt, 1 game at a time and see where we are after 38 games.

4.) 23 Jan 2021 18:26:43
I want to start a protest at the next game against the owners for not signing a centre half.

On the 80th minute we should all get up and walk out of our living rooms 👀🤣.

5.) 23 Jan 2021 18:48:06
Defeatist attitude! i've no idea how we will do, neither does anyone else but I'm happy to see how it pans out. I want to see how we get on, if we can improve and win the League, if not top 4 or a trophy. It is what it is. Let's just see, instead of getting our knickers in a twist.

6.) 23 Jan 2021 19:48:06
Brilliant JK23😂.

7.) 23 Jan 2021 19:53:16
I think some sports analytics group predicted something like 81 points would be enough to win the league this season.

8.) 23 Jan 2021 20:52:10
This season of all seasons is impossible to predict. Like the OP said let’s just get behind the boys and see how it pans out.
All this ‘I don’t know where our next goal is coming from’ rubbish is just that. Rubbish. We have some of the most dangerous forward players on the planet it’s only a matter of time until they’re scoring again.

9.) 23 Jan 2021 22:36:44
We’re not scoring goals, we don’t look like we’re going to score goals (when was the last time we actually tested an opposition keeper, seriously? ), and if we don’t make a mistake that gifts the opposition a goal you can almost guarantee that a ref will give a dodgy penalty, so where and how are we going start winning again just looks a million miles away, as looking at our fixtures it’s not getting any easier, delude yourselves as much as you want but we’re not winning games and I’ve seen nothing to suggest that’s going to end anytime soon.

{Ed0666's Note - Top scorers in the premiership not bad for a team that ain’t scoring goals 😂

10.) 24 Jan 2021 03:54:33
TAA had a shot saved at the near post by Pope, Salah had a good shot tipped around the post by Pope, Origi didn't test the keeper but should really have scored, pretty sure Firmino had a very good chance deflected by a Burnley player then by Pope 6 times. that's just 4 times in our very last game that we have looked like scoring or at least tested an opposition keeper.
Thats not to say we are playing well, far from it but I think you are painting a bleak picture than is necessary. We have had chances we just didn't score, which off course isn't great but I would by more concerned if we weren't creating chances.
I'm sure someone came up with a figure of 75 chances? In our last lot of games? I'm sure some of them must have tested the keepers also.

11.) 25 Jan 2021 07:41:26
We are top scorers but our conversion rate is terrible!



09 Nov 2020 08:12:53
The problem for me isn't VAR, but it's the clarity of the rules that they adhere to.

For example they've tried to make it too intricate by removing the 'daylight' rule for offside, so now you can be offside by a finger nail. Handballs are given for the most minor of arm movement toward the ball etc.

If they relaxed the rules a little bit, then we'd have much clearer decisions made and VAR wouldn't look like a total joke.


1.) 09 Nov 2020 09:08:21
I disagree to an extent. It’s still the way VAR is used which is the problem.

Take both handball decisions given as penalties yesterday.

On viewing the incidents the referee was only shown both incidents in slow motion and mostly only the contact with the ball. Which is essentially just to make sure that it hit the arm or where about on the arm it hit.

Looking solely at that though doesn’t take into account any of the following;

1) Distance from the attacker to the defender
2) speed at which the ball is played
3) Defenders direction of travel and their movement as the ball is played.

For me the black and white nature of the decision now is nonsense. There is always a subjective element and that has to remain. I would like to see referees given a few simple questions to determine handball.

1) Did it hit the arm?
2) Do you think it was deliberate action?
3) Did the defender make their profile bigger with the movement of their arms?
4) Could the defender have done anything more to avoid the contact?

I would like to think that 99% of non biased people could look at incident on that basis and agree if it was handball or not.

2.) 09 Nov 2020 11:43:12
If there going to stick with trying to make handball black and white I'd personally make it similar to a back pass and award an indirect free kick. A penalty is way to harsh a punishment when someone is running back and it accidently hits them. At least with an indirect free kick both sides have a fairer opportunity.

Ideally I'd rather them go back to not calling them as handballs but think that's unlikely.

3.) 09 Nov 2020 12:04:17
If its going to be black and white and I was an attacking player I'd be rfubbing my hands together. I'd be trying to hit arms axnd hands, easier than finding the net.

4.) 10 Nov 2020 18:02:33
Spot on, Waqqas. You cannot make things like handball black and whit cos it is open to the referee’s interpretation. Worse, they want to say it should be objective yet the tech they use, is not capable of reaching that bar so why are people shocked about the shambles we are seeing when the system is set up to fail under such ludicrous foundations?



07 Apr 2020 12:29:56
So with news pretty much being terrible for the last month or so, let's add some levity to the situation.
I know it's not Liverpool related, but there isn't much going on right now that is. So with that in mind, let's post some videos of the funny and creative stuff that people have done, during the lockdown.

I found this the other night. Dalek ordering self isolation.


1.) 07 Apr 2020 14:15:09
OP, there are also some seriously funny jokes online about self isolation and how it is affecting people. Check out this joke:

"I visited this restaurant known as The Kitchen. What I still don't understand about this place is that I had to by my own ingredients, bring them to the restaurant and cook the food myself. I literally have no clue how a place like this has been open all this time". "



01 Mar 2020 06:46:12
This loss might be a good thing. We've been riding this unbeaten wave for ages now, the pressure must have been enormous. It wouldn't surprise me if we go and wallop everyone 4-0 in the next 3 fixtures.


1.) 01 Mar 2020 07:21:59
For me, I wanted us to go undefeated. Not sure the players cared about that really (or some of them did) . What I will say that Klopp repeatedly said he never cared about all that nonsense and last night's game showed that he was right. Klopp knows his stuff. He lives the reality of football and knows that at this level, going undefeated is difficult esp. in the PL era where lots of teams have very good players and Watford is one of such teams. Not sure that was the case when Arsenal won it but I digress.

In the first game at Anfield, Watford played well enuff to get a point at least so Klopp and the players were fully aware of what they were capable of. Watford played a blinder and were by far the better side. We lost. We dust ourselves up and go back to basics and get better. As for the rival fans, they can do one. Peace.

{Ed025's Note - im glad you came on red meister, i was just wondering how you feel about lovren now?, the wonderful player who you told us all that schooled ronaldo, i was just wondering if you wanted custard with that humble pie mate?.. :)

2.) 01 Mar 2020 07:50:37
For me ed025 the guy just doesn’t make the backs things look easy every things he does looks such an effort
With him in the team we will concede penalties on a regular basis as he has not learned how to defend without using wwf wrestling tactics.

{Ed025's Note - im not a fan either john and never have been, he was not the only one who had a bad game yesterday though but i still dont know what he offers mate..

3.) 01 Mar 2020 08:00:19
My above post should read basic not backs
But yeah I’m not a fan never have been never will be
But we win as a team and lose as a team
It is funny though quite a few on here are very happy to have a go at Naby on a daily basis but yet when lovren was named the place went into full defence mode lol
For me lovren is not a good defender for a team looking to win titles and champions leagues.

4.) 01 Mar 2020 08:23:46
It’s pointless looking to pick a scapegoat.
No one played well, perhaps apart from Alisson who didn’t have much chance with all 3 goals. Trent was terrible, Mane and Salah uncharacteristically quiet.
Firmino, well, pointless having your striker back in your own half when there’s 4 or 5 Watford defenders in behind him.
At no point did Liverpool get beyond the Watford defensive line, something to ponder.
That Watford performance will become the template for playing Liverpool now. It already was, to be fair, but that’s sealed it.
Awful to watch too, boring as.

5.) 01 Mar 2020 08:54:19
People need to see the bigger picture. No one is saying Lovren was the only one to blame for the loss in this match although if you listened to Deeneys post match interview you can’t be blamed for thinking he was to blame for 2 of the goals. The point is he is not good enough and has not ever been good enough for lfc. There was a stat during the match that said Firmino hadn’t scored one premier league goal at Anfield this season. If that’s true it’s simply not good enough for our striker. Hopefully tactics will slightly change next season so we are not overly reliant on the top 3. With the amount of crosses from the fullbacks a Weber type player maybe the way to go.

6.) 01 Mar 2020 09:30:57
Lovren got bullied alright like watching him against lukaku 13 aerial duels and lost 7 according to the fotmob app and the ones he lost were dangerous

When Watford seem his name on the team sheet I'd say Deeney was licking his lips.

7.) 01 Mar 2020 09:45:16
I'm glad I was in the boozer yesterday and let it sink in, as yesterday after the match I could face ranted on. We were just awful, and hopefully its maybe a kick up the backside to refocus everyone, were still going to win the league and we had to get beat at some time, just wish it hadn't been because of such a poor display. and the rest of the team were just as poor as lovren yesterday.
I blamed my wife, the two times she's come to pub with me to watch football this season, a draw to Man Utd, and yesterday's debacle. She is now banned from matchdays in the local. sends her most sincere apologies, and I've put her on a final warning!

8.) 01 Mar 2020 11:02:43
I like Firmino, I really do, and I know what he brings to the team in terms of linking play, but I do think his lack of goals is becoming a slight issue. Perhaps bringing in someone like Werner who is more of a goalscorer than Bobby may be the thing that really helps us push onto the next level?

9.) 01 Mar 2020 12:51:08
Ed25, nice tyo see you are back. Let me break this down to you cos using straw-man arguments is for the weak-minded, which I am not. It is true that Lovs shut down CR7 in the CL final. That is a fact. Oh, he also assisted Mane's equalizer in that game. Also, Lovs has had brilliant perfs. for us this season esp. vs City where again, he shut down Aguero. It is also true, that Lovs had a bad game vs Watford and so did VVD and Trent, the front three and every other LFC player on the pitch.

Furthermore, Lovs had not played a single game for LFC in weeks hence, he was clearly out of rhythm unlike Gomez who has been playing and would have had a better perf. clearly had he not be injured and had to miss out. Clearly, that flew over your head but not surprised., Just facts, bro.
Moral of the story, bro? Multiple things can be correct at the same time. This is not an either/ or situation which is what your straw-man argument is and again, it is for the weak-minded, which I am not.

You don't rate Lovs. Fine and I'm not arsed about your opinion, one bit cos you are the same guy who said that Pinkford was at the same level as Allison. I stopped caring, right there, lol. I rate Lovs cos he is a fighter, shows bravery and and does not hide in games, mistakes or not. He shut down every CF that came his way in the last WC including the beloved Harry Kane, fact. Had VVD shown the same fight, and bravery Lovs showed, he would not have been as dreadful as Lovs was. Peace and Love.

10.) 01 Mar 2020 13:11:24
Johnnyr1970, I'm sorry but I'm not having any of that. Anytime we lose or don't play well, this argument pops up again and again. This is common knowledge that Bobbie's goalscoring rate is not like your typical top CF but again apart from Robert Lewandowski, no CF can do what he can do in our system.

Also, it's not like he can't hit a barn door either. He has averaged 15 a season since he came to us (and his assists numbers are thru the roof) and this season alone, he has scored in big, tight games that actually got us over the line (see Wolves, Spurs and CWC) so your argument is flawed right there, IMO. Look, we lost. We were poor from top to bottom w/ o exception. We have to do better. Leave the scapegoating alone. It is counterproductive.

11.) 01 Mar 2020 14:57:36
Wasn't looking to make Firmino a scapegoat RedMeister. Just to reiterate, I really do rate him as a player but. there's no room for sentiment in football and if Werner can bring the same type of forward play AND score 20 goals per season rather than 15 then it's that type of player who I want to see the club bring in to keep us where we currently are.

Jadon Havertz, just for reference when I was skating in 2019 I rolled my ankle. The instant pain was intense, but within 2 minutes I was walking with full weight on my feet and no limp. I even walked up the hill from the skate park to the hospital at Winchester (If you've been to winchester you know that is a long, steep hill) to get it checked as I heard a "crack" when it rolled. Turns out I'd dislocated it and done damage to the ligaments in my ankle.

For around a year I felt no pain while walking but as soon as I tried to skate the pain was unreal.

So yeah, ankle injuries can be serious and still be a 'walk off' substitution.
