Hi eds, forgive me for not mentioning Kono in this post but BBC reporting that Barca are signing Stegen to replace Valdes, just wondering where that leaves Pepe?


{Ed001's Note - if Rafa is still at Napoli, it is likely he will join them on a perm.}

1.) Ed001 a perm would not suit reina at all!

{Ed001's Note - oh I don't know, I think he would look cute.}

Hi Ed

First time I've posted on here but have heard a rumour that there could be a bid for Xabi Alonso in January - any truth in this?

Also just wanted to comment on the Suarez rumour. If the club categorically refused to sell him in the Summer why would there be a sudden change of stance in January?


1.) We only 'categorically' refused to sell him to Arsenal for 40M. I suspect if it had been say Real at 45M+, Suarez would now be pals with Bale.

2.) The xabi alonso rumour again? I can't wait for the time for Alonso retires. Maybe then we will stop hearing this 'rumours'

3.) I think it depends a lot on a replacement being available - If Benzema is part of the deal it could happen.

Question for Ed001 and indeed fellow reds fans, if all goes well we should make the semi finals of the Champions League and still be challenging for the title with hopefully 1 or 2 games left to play. the question is. would you see this as a successful season if we were to be knocked out in the semis and finish 2nd in the league? Obviously Ed002 has always alluded to the fact that the owners see the league title as a successful season due to the money they have given Klopp but wondered what everyone’s thoughts would be on finishing a close 2nd and a semi final in the UCL, would any fans consider this an unsuccessful season?


{Ed001's Note - I would see it as progress rather than success.}

1.) 29 Mar 2019 22:56:29
I agree ed, i think ultimately we need to take a step back and look at the progress we have made. if it were not for one of the most expensively assembled teams in the prem ever, who are arguably the strongest as well.

To be competing with City is exceptional. we can only enjoy the end of the season and hope we can keep the pace.

I am hoping that Anfield can be the 12th man for each and every game we have left, i want the opposition to not be able to think over the roar of Anfield.

2.) 29 Mar 2019 23:22:57
Agree with Ed001. It's certainly good progress though.

3.) 29 Mar 2019 23:29:29
Agree with ed001.

4.) 30 Mar 2019 01:29:05
Perfect answer.

5.) 30 Mar 2019 02:19:54
I have to agree with Ed, it's only a success if we achieve our goals, and that is winning trophies.

6.) 30 Mar 2019 02:39:18
We desperately need a bit of silver
Get the monkey off our back
Been far to long since we tasted any form of cup success
2012 long time ago
For a club of our size and the investment put in
7/ 8 years is far to long.

7.) 30 Mar 2019 02:45:54
Agree with Ed’s oo1
We have made progress in the league
But let’s be honest 2nd or 4th
Not much different is it?

In my opinion we are going back in the cups bar champions league.

A good show at fa cup and cabero would be great

Making progress on club front but not trophy front

Why is this the case with the club
Need to win something.

8.) 30 Mar 2019 07:06:24
Well am just enjoying the ride. Long my it continue.

9.) 30 Mar 2019 16:51:18
Weren’t we like over 20 points behind city last season? If one point behind isn’t progress what is?

10.) 30 Mar 2019 22:16:32
Don't give up, we're still in both competitions with the best team we've had for years. Let's enjoy it and keep believing.

11.) 31 Mar 2019 16:31:38
Success can really only be measured by titles/ trophies etc.

Whilst I agree with ed002 with regards to the league and the money given to Klopp, what you also have to take into consideration is that we are up against a City side that has out spent everyone and practically has two first choice players in every position. It reminds of when Mourinho first went to Chelsea and the money he was given at his disposal to buy success.

We’ve not had a points tally like this at this stage of the season since our glory days in the 80’s, it’s just a shame we are going tor to toe with the City financial powerhouse at this present moment in time.

I firmly believe we would be crowned champions had the blue half of Manchester not been in the way lol. If we were to beat city to the title then that would be one hell of a success!



01 Jan 2019 00:23:22
Hi Ed's, I'm not going to ask you who your dream signing would be as I know you've probably answered it a thousand times, but for me (and I'd be interested in whether you think he'd break in to the front 3 or not) it would be Sane every day of the week, one of the most under rated footballers (with Son) in the premier league, do you agree?


{Ed002's Note - They are both decent players as you say.}

1.) 01 Jan 2019 00:57:47
Could you imagine if we had kante the amount if goals we would score in the knowledge he was sitting in front if the back 4. I think we would have 2 goals scored against us this year. Happy New year eds.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 02:53:06
Give me Wijnaldum all day!

3.) 01 Jan 2019 03:11:20
If we're dreaming. Mbappe without a doubt.

If we were being more realistic, Timo Werner.

4.) 01 Jan 2019 03:27:49
Dream would be De Bruyne playing behind our front three, but I do think Son would be a perfect fit for how we play.

5.) 01 Jan 2019 01:48:50
Wan bissaka for me!

6.) 01 Jan 2019 12:22:41
De Bruyne and kante.

7.) 01 Jan 2019 14:34:10
Coutinio for me lads.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 13:23:03
If our lot can keep some sort of this current form up then sorry none of that lot gets our team ( on the bench some) and as for that Kante shout 🤦🏻‍♂️ Have you not seen Fabinho play? He will make you eat them words next season when he proper settled.



22 Dec 2018 22:28:47
Just a random question partly related to the Wolves game last night. I noticed that they were allowed to take a towel from the ball boy and dry the ball before launching a throw in towards our penalty box, was wondering if Wolves were winning by a single goal would the ref consider this time wasting and book the player. just seems like a very odd thing to allow in this day and age. Interested in hearing your views. not that it makes a blind bit of difference to the outcome of the league!


{Ed002's Note - it is simply a aid and not any sort of conspiracy against Liverpool.}

1.) 22 Dec 2018 22:51:51
Thanks Ed002, have a great Christmas and New Year.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 00:15:42
Nearly every team that takes long throws does it.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 00:38:37
Yeah. Don’t think it was anything off.

Also, was it at the Chelsea game yesterday that the ball boy got to the ball too early and resulted in a drop ball? Hope that someone gives a pat on his head to be sure he’s ok. A genuine mistake in his urgency to get the team going and the ball was rolling out anyway.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 01:35:38
Wasn’t there something with Stoke when they did it to say that they had to make it available to both teams?

{Ed001's Note - yes, it is available to both teams when it is done.}

5.) 23 Dec 2018 06:29:58
I remember special towels being reserved for Rory Delap at Stoke during the good old Tony Pulis days for long throws. No reason why that should not be allowed.

{Ed001's Note - we have them now when Gomez is in the team.}

6.) 23 Dec 2018 07:30:26
OP, players wiping the ball with a towel (or their shorts, really) to get a better grip on the ball before launching it, happens all the time during games. There is nothing surprising about it.

7.) 23 Dec 2018 11:37:07
Maybe it was the ball bot hazard kicked? 😂.



18 Aug 2017 20:48:59
Hi Ed001

I've used the search function and have seen a comment from you about Carragher in his early days getting criticised and I'll admit I was naive enough to be amongst them but wanted to get your opinion on why he wasn't performing. was it purely due to getting played out of position or because he was still learning/ trying to fit into the team or something else and leading on from that do you see any of our current CB's turning the fan's opinion around and becoming much stronger performers?



{Ed001's Note - well for one he was performing well, it was just that every slight little thing he did wrong the fans would jump on. However he did get even better as he went along and gained experience, because he worked hard on his game.

None of our centre backs are anything like Carra, they don't obsess over the game the way he did.}

1.) 19 Aug 2017 05:22:14
One of things I miss most about Carra is his voice screaming out at his teammates during a game, you could hear it even on TV.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 06:54:19
My favourite player when he was at the club, he's just the type of player/ leader we need in the team at the moment.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 07:08:28
Thanks Ed001, appreciate your response.

{Ed001's Note - I have to admit I was probably very biased when he played, but I always thought he was very hard done by when the fans would criticise him. They would be moaning because he wasn't Fowler or Gerrard or Owen and scoring goals. Every goal that was conceded seemed to be blamed on him, even when it was not his fault. He was the scapegoat for a while as he was a trier and people assumed that meant he had no ability. He was always a far better player on the ball than he was given credit for.}

4.) 19 Aug 2017 07:47:24
Ed is right here, Carragher was alright on the ball, hence him being shipped around CB, LB, RB and also as a defensive midfielder.
You really don't realise what you have until its gone, we were all so used to Carragher barking orders that we hardly noticed it, now he's gone we have no one organising at the back, and probably no one with the balls or backing to explain to the manager that were struggling with the current zonal marking set up, even if Carragher does appear to be a great advocate of zonal marking when its done right.

{Ed001's Note - zonal is not the problem, if we went man to man they would still be hopeless without an organiser. We need a goalkeeper who is not as nice as Migs and will kick them round the training ground if they let him down in the matches.}

5.) 19 Aug 2017 08:23:21
in carragher early days when he played right back and left back he was solid defensively but a bit like clyne offered nothing going forward, he would get in to a crossing position and play the ball backwards but that is because he was never a fullback. and as soon as he went to centre back we see the best of carragher and I think no one must have more regrets than Jamie for not playing one more season because we would have walked the league that year with him in the heart of the defence. 4 years on and still nowhere near replacing him.

6.) 19 Aug 2017 08:35:40
I don't think it is complete zonal marking anyway. I remember Rafa using the same system years ago where certain players were zonal and other picked up runners. We didn't concede anywhere near the amount of goals as we do now. Its the players that are the issue, or the coaching if you like. Good players should be able to work into any system given they have had pre season and train every week.

7.) 19 Aug 2017 08:52:29
Spot on, Ed and Andy. Carra was an old school CB/ defender who learnt from the likes of Hansen and Hyppia. Back then, the CB and GK were empowered by the manager to bark out orders and organize the team in defensive situations. These players were able to do that cos they were an extension of the manager's brain on the pitch and if something was not working, they would talk it out with the manager in-game. Buffon is the only GK I see, who till this day, does that right now as that is how he was taught 2 decades ago, playing with the likes of Canavarro, Nesta, Maldini etc., legends of the game.

Now, managers have ruined the game with their pathetic, rigid systems that does not allow for any outside input from players in a bid to get all the credit as they are all now control freaks. The players seem to not be allowed to have an opinion or give input on anything anymore.

8.) 19 Aug 2017 09:24:52
Irish Rover you are right, we do have a few who man mark too. The stupid thing being they are usually our smallest players marking giants which baffles me every time I see it. Whyyyyyy?!

9.) 19 Aug 2017 09:31:03
When did the fans start singing 'we all dream of a team of Carraghers'? Hadn't realized he ever got criticism. I always thought he was great.

{Ed001's Note - he was very much a target of criticism in his earliest years. I can remember one night having a chat with him about it in Sullys and he was a bit the worse for wear. He admitted it did get to him at times, but he had the support of his family, who were very good at backing him. He did become a cult hero fairly early, but a large proportion of the fans did not rate him up until very late in his career. No idea why, but some people just hate to admit they were wrong I think.}

10.) 19 Aug 2017 09:49:19
Ed001 has clearly never seen Mignolet's kicking!

{Ed001's Note - I have, that is the problem, they are not scared of him because every time he tries to kick someone's arse he misses....}

11.) 19 Aug 2017 11:39:24
Kind of the same thing with Lucas, Ed. He was only appreciated by the fans in his final season at LFC. Never before.

{Ed001's Note - some still do not appreciate him mate.}



31 Dec 2016 22:54:22
Hi Eds, just wondered regarding Countinho, are players who want champions league football bothered about how this is achieved? Eg. Would it make a difference to Couts depending on whether we finished a comfortable 4th or whether we missed out on winning the league on the final day of the season? Wishing all the Eds a great new year.


{Ed002's Note - Players want to be winning things, so finishing first is a lot better than fourth.}

So reading the latest 4 posts on here, we’ve got Mane and Salah to Madrid and Bobby to PSG. I reckon we’ll do ok with Origi, Studge and Brewster up top next season! Silly season well under way!

Far more disruptive than Suarez?! Is that even possible? Don't get me wrong I don't want us to go anywhere near super Mario but at least he'd be available every game and not banging on about how he's always dreamt of playing in Spain

Salah mate, I’d go for Origi. save yourself a few quid on lettering! I was lucky enough to be in the kop last night and whilst the majority of matches I’ve been too are Champions League games due to it being nigh on impossible to get league tickets, the atmosphere was head and shoulders above anything I’ve experienced. surpassed Dortmund which I didn’t think was possible! Ps Salah. I love your continued optimism and IF we do the unthinkable on Sunday I’ll buy you a beer!

Hate disagreeing with anything on here but because only a handful of the Kop know the words it sounds like one big droney song. on par with “oh when the Spurs go marching in” compare it with “The fields of Anfield Road” or the Salah song and it’s sung with no passion. fine against European teams but won’t work until the whole kop sings it.

Surely every Liverpool fan knew Torres wanted out a long time before Suarez’s name was even mentioned. he was never going to partner him realistically.
