Hi Ed01 is there any news on potential movements/ reshuffling of coaching staff if Buvac probably isn't going to return. And how much of a blow do we think it is if he doesn't return? Who would you like to see in that role? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it does look like Pepjin is going to be asked to take the job, but no clue how it will affect things.}

1.) 28 May 2018 18:40:30
Really excited to have Pepjin back on board. He successfully over saw the transition of Trent and Woodburn from youth players into the first team squad and he deserves huge credit for it in my opinion. Especially with Arnold!

I always saw him as the long term successor to Klopp and was gutted when he left. Hopefully having a more important role as Klopp's number 2, will satisfy him for the 3 or 4 more years we will have Klopp in charge.

2.) 28 May 2018 19:04:32
I’m with you MK. I think he’s an exciting up and coming coach.

3.) 28 May 2018 19:47:29
Does this mean Buvac is leaving permanently then? Kinda hoped Klopp and him would patch things up, for the sake of their friendship if not for anything else.



25 Oct 2017 14:33:16
It's being reported that Klopp and Coutinho's relationship is basically decimated. How true is that Ed's? I know the lad wants gone but he seems to have knuckled down and put in some good performances for us. I personally think he'll go in Jan if not the summer.

{Ed001's Note - he is unhappy at being made to stay. That is all.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 17:31:52
He will definitely go don't know bout anyone else but I can't stand the thought of having players who are plotting too move in our squad it's not healthy, we will b fine without coutihno and emre can we were doing well up too arsenal game without coutihno, it's mane who is very important an Salah, got a feeling mane will b off at end of season he seems that type of character if we ain't doing well.

2.) 25 Oct 2017 17:34:04
I’d love to know where these ‘reports’ come from!

3.) 25 Oct 2017 18:06:46
Doubt Mane will be going anywhere! The backlash would be terrible for FSG selling Coutinho, letting Emre leave on a free (by allowing his contract to run down this far) and then selling Mane on top? Never going to happen.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 18:12:36
Ed has there been any agreement or suggestions of when he will be allowed to leave, be it Jan or the summer? Or nothing at all along those lines.

{Ed001's Note - when a replacement arrives.}

5.) 25 Oct 2017 18:39:51
I am more worried about him wanting too leave, than us wanting too keep him seems every summer we go through something like the coutihno crap.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 18:48:44
He will probably want to leave at some stage, but with his best bud Naby Keita coming in i would hope he wants to stay next season before seeing if we progress or not.

7.) 25 Oct 2017 18:55:01
hailstones that’s what happens when you have good players, other clubs want them. Liverpool are not at the top of the food chain, this happens to every club to a certain extent, only the top 4-5 clubs in Europe don’t have to worry about their best players being taken.

8.) 25 Oct 2017 19:25:02
Thank you for your reply ed much appreciated mate. So if and when we can get a replacement in, he will be allowed to leave probably to Barca, unless they have moved on.

{Ed001's Note - I hope they have and he has no one interested, might teach him a lesson.}

9.) 25 Oct 2017 20:58:14
I no what your saying ed however we are better off selling him imo mate and replacing him. Rafinha don't look a bad player to me either if we can get him as part of the deal.

10.) 25 Oct 2017 20:52:44
Smeg head I suppose I need too accept that players come an go, jus I want them too b as passionate as us supporters cos they should b an want too win every match an that's there only focus, pure wishful thinking!

11.) 26 Oct 2017 07:06:49
Does he notget or want to get that the club needs to get a replacement first?

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't care he just wants to move on.}



02 Mar 2016 09:48:47
Reports in a daily rag that shall forever be used as toilet paper seem to put Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal chief execs in a "secret" meeting in London about a new break away league as the Eds have suggested in the past. From what has been said in the past it would seem Liverpool were never in the mix for the new Pan European League but if this meeting with American Ross - who put together the ICC is to be believed - then we seem to be a front runner. Or is this just someone who is trying to take advantage of UEFA's turmoil with their own idea of a Pan European League to make a lot of money?

{Ed002's Note - This is the original counter proposal backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin which is soon to be tabled that I mentioned before. This is an option to the breakaway as everyone now knows the reality of it. The proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. However, UEFA are now considering yet another proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL.

1.) 02 Mar 2016 10:33:31
Sounds very complicated. I guess it's wait and see now. Thanks for the input Ed.

{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with in great detail here over the past three or four years - search on breakaway.}

2.) 02 Mar 2016 10:44:23
This is scary.

3.) 02 Mar 2016 10:48:00
If this said meeting was regarding a proposal backed by UEFA, then how is the original European super league idea any different to this counter proposal? From what I see, both proposals pitch an idea of an exclusive, pan-European league with a fixed number of teams.

{Ed002's Note - It is radically different in terms of the teams that might be involved, the running of it and the people looking to fund it. UEFA gave this support, as they are doing with another proposal, to save their own asses.}

4.) 02 Mar 2016 11:51:01
HI EDS if this does happen what will happen with the other comps like the F. A. Cup.

{Ed002's Note - It will continue without any clubs who leave the league.}

5.) 02 Mar 2016 12:35:42
To me the scariest thing would be places being fixed for some teams - the top comp should always be earned. As much as I love LFC, imagine if this had happened a few years ago and we had spent the last 5 years getting in over Arsenal who had never won it? Would be a killer for the sport as the competition would be so uneven, there wouldn't even be a point in fighting for the prizes and the whole concept of every team being in it to win it all dies.

6.) 02 Mar 2016 12:36:22
A European Super League also begs the question.
How much more money will the supporters of these teams be screwed for, to watch televised matches?

7.) 02 Mar 2016 14:32:38
I'd be very interested to see this develop further. From the bits of info I've read on here (and I'm not pretending to fully understand it all either) this would allow the most marketable teams in the world - of which we're still one - to better access that revenue. Without other details it's daft to suggest that it'll be a bad idea anyway. Plus anything that gets us back at the top table with Barcelona etc ought to be explored.

{Ed001's Note - god no. It is purely about greed and money. Places in Europe should be earnt by winning, not by virtue of having a big name. It is like the moronic thinking that sees the world stuck with monarchies that offer no use or value but get to be there purely because of who they are, not because they deserve anything. Everyone and everything should earn what they get.}

8.) 02 Mar 2016 16:17:51
Imagine the cost of following your team every other week across Europe, that's just not sustainable. Wouldn't it result in half empty stadiums?

9.) 02 Mar 2016 17:17:37
Would possibly be home fans only accept the few odd away fans who could possibly travel now and again but at least anfield with soon to be over 50 000 fans would be pretty awesome :p.

10.) 02 Mar 2016 18:50:10
I would imagine the away tickets would be supply on demand up to around 10% of the capacity of the stadium or something?

11.) 03 Mar 2016 02:42:02
As the premier league is the currently biggest earning league is there any chance that it's actually in the interest of English teams to remain the premier league? One could imagine that over time the higher earnings generated by premier league teams would increase the wealth gap between themselves and the rest of Europe. What I am asking I suppose that if the premier league is currently "winning" why change anything?
Also agree with the poster above who thinks that attendances would be s concern due to travel costs. I for one hope this never happens.

{Ed001's Note - it would be very much in the interest of the Prem teams in the short term. The issue is whether that is sustainable in the long term or whether a super league would eventually begin to gather up the less avid fans and the new arrivals in the long term.}



03 Jan 2015 09:13:27
Any legs in the Defoe to LFC on loan till the end of the season rumours? Personally I think he'd get us goals. I reckon the player would like the move too and is definitely better than, Borini, Mario and Lambert and would suit our game.

{Ed001's Note - he was offered and it was rejected, at least initially.}

1.) 04 Jan 2015 00:16:27
Luis Muriel! to replace Borini.

Not usually a doom monger but think we might regret that transfer window come Xmas. Always seems to be the way with us, we win something but we don't kick on. Anyways. Role on Friday. Let's send those boys back to Norwich with a headache.

1.) 08 Aug 2019 18:31:48
To be honest I don't think we have to much to worry about. Arsenal have probably done the best business. Man United's window has been poor for me in terms of what they needed. Chelsea haven't done wonders especially with losing Hazard. Spurs have done well but not as well as it was looking at one point and there's a good chance Levy will try and balance the books by selling Erikson and rose which could arguably leave them weaker than before. City have a replacement for fernandinho but it will be impossible to compete in window with them. Klopp has released a lot of deadwood and freed up a lot in wages. Hopefully Keita will turn up this season and with Ox back and Brewster could be promising.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 19:20:42
I miss the thumbs down button lol.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 19:22:31
I think we're fine. It isn't uncommen for your back up lb to be a younger player. Larouci and lewis look like they could hack it imo. I think in brewster, origi, shaqiri, lallana and Aoc is pretty good cover for our front three.

As long as henderson plays our midfield is sorted. Keita going to be much better. I can see a trio of fab, hendo and keita playing quite a lot. But nice to have milner, gini aoc and lallan who can play there too. I think we're fine.

A thousand times, new signings are not the sole way to improve a team and can sometimes have a negative effect. We need forwards who can get at least 60 between them. Check. We need a midfield to hustle, win the ball and make it hard for the opposition. Check
You need t full backs that can cross well and be athletic plus cover, check. You need a group of cbs oh high quality, check and you need a couple of decent keepers. Check.

I don't care if its these player or another 25 (well, i do really. Just watched moneyball) but if we have a squad that can produce what's needed, we will be very very hard to beat.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 19:42:30
I’m not worried mate. City’s defence is still shocking, particularly if Laporte is injured as Stones and Otamendi are poor. Additionally, Zinchenko is by no stretch of the imagination a left back.

My hope is that improvements further down the table mean they’re pressed better, as that’s when they mistake mistakes. Wolves proved that last season. Great defences typically win titles and that’s what I’m banking on this year. Alisson and the defence now have a full year under their belt. More goals from the midfield (hoping the ox + Keita can help with that) and we’re looking good.

5.) 08 Aug 2019 20:02:01
What Eamon said. Plus I reckon United will struggle and Arsenal are like us under Rodgers.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 20:04:22
It seems as though Fernandinho could play centre back for City this year, which is a good option for them I think. City are still the team to beat obviously.
Spurs look interesting.
The domestic cups look like U23 competitions for us which seems exciting on the one hand but I have memories of Wenger’s Arsenal on the other.
Anyway, Klopp certainly deserves our full support.
Roll on Friday. Come on you mighty Reds.

7.) 08 Aug 2019 20:11:45
Fernandinho must be knocking 35? I’d fancy Salah or Mane running him, or sending on big Div and putting the ball in the mixer as he won’t fancy that.

8.) 08 Aug 2019 20:44:03
OP, a once great man once said, "There is nothing to fear but fear itself". You cannot plan for everything, mate. We have made a decision as a club and we will go with what we have got if you allow fear an anxiety to overcome you or start second-guessing stuff, that would be choice you would have made. I and many others, choose differently. Above all tho, Football Is Back!

Liverpool set to sign Nu Juan before the deadline for an undisclosed fee! 🙈.

1.) 06 Aug 2019 14:57:56
As well as the blurry Turkish fullback.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 15:15:16
Looks like he is more of a midfielder. He only played 2 games at right back whilst he was trying to break into the team and then once he did that, he was used exclusively in midfield for about 20 games. Looks great on YouTube, but who doesn't. I hadn't even heard of him until this morning!

3.) 06 Aug 2019 16:01:09
Replacing Fabinho apparently 🤷‍♂️.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 16:55:56
I don't think we can afford Nu Juan.



12 Mar 2019 21:03:00
Whats happening with Naby Ed01? Is he having trouble settling, or with injuries or picking up the game here? Seems he isn't getting the game time. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't start one game and he is not getting the game time?}

1.) 13 Mar 2019 06:52:41
He’s injured so he’s been left behind that’s all.

2.) 13 Mar 2019 08:37:47
Didn’t say that Ed01. I’m saying he’s not a starter at the moment so is it a developmental thing or he’s just not doing enough to get in the first 11 every game? I know he picked up a niggle for tonight but he’s hardly set the world on fire so far. Not having a go at him. He’s had about 13/ 14 starts all season.

{Ed001's Note - seriously? He was in the first team until the weekend though. What more does he have to do before it is just accepted he is part of a squad?}

3.) 13 Mar 2019 12:06:57
Horses for courses. I think Keita being on the bench is more tactical than anything sinister. He does tend to pick up his fair share of muscle injuries which is a shame.

4.) 13 Mar 2019 19:34:03
Keita is injured hence, not in the squad for Munich. As for him not playing, Ed01 has said that there are games Klopp can start Keita in while others like the Utd game or Everton game, he is not yet used to the pace and tempo and also, he is easily wound up and could be a liability to the team. Also tactically, he is not yet the best at tracking back and filling the gaps when we lose the ball. Apart from all that, there is nothing to see here, IMO.

{Ed025's Note - i disagree redwolf there is plenty to see, if you pay that sort of money it has to be for the finished article mate, you have pointed out 3 major flaws in his game there and that has to be a big concern..



06 Nov 2018 22:01:25
Tonight aside, are we now seeing a Liverpool team missing the influence of Buvac on the coaching side Eds? . We seem to be a lot more solid at the back but nothing linking midfield to the front three. And clueless when going behind. This is basically the same team as last season but we are missing something.

{Ed033's Note - Yes, Liverpool FC should obviously hire Ed001 and or Ed002 (if they can afford Ed002) as consultants. :)

1.) 06 Nov 2018 23:46:00
I don't seem to remember anyone calling for Buvac when we won 8 in a row in the PL BUT now that we are in a bit of a sticky patch, Buvac reappears out of nowhere as if he was some kind of genius that Klopp cannot do without. As if Klopp cannot function on his own or with the assistants he himself, hand-picked. Strange really.

2.) 07 Nov 2018 05:39:35
It's not really that though Brover I think it's the abrupt change in style from a swash-buckling, pressing, attacking team to quite a slow, pondering team that looks bereft of ideas in the final third. We basically pumped balls into their box for the best part of the second half - that was our strategy. I don't think Buvac was the saviour but it's clear his influence had us playing in a certain way and, at the moment, in his absence, we are playing differently. Whilst results remain (overall) decent that will fly, but if/ when results nosedive there will be some questions that need answering.

The team is well capable of pressing and harrying opposition - we have seen it for the past few seasons - so why has a formula that the players knew, that had seen us make incremental improvements over the seasons, been suddenly dropped and replaced by what is being referred to as the 'pragmatic approach'? To save energy for the end of the season? If our form and overall standard of play doesn't improve we'll have plenty of energy left at the end of the season but we just won't have a trophy to try and win with it. I think a strategical rethink is in order - we have yet to perform consistently well this season and the Red Star came was merely a reminder of that - how long does the manager wait before deciding current tactics aren't cutting the mustard?

3.) 07 Nov 2018 07:24:51
Well written post, Seano.



19 Jul 2018 23:52:29
Ed01 who do you see as Liverpool's No2 when Migs and Ward are sold and Karius is loaned out as some have said he will be to build his confidence back up? Is Grabara up to the task?

{Ed001's Note - it would be unlikely that all 3 would go in one window without a replacement coming in.}

Coutinho will NOT be coming back to Liverpool this window. Sorry. I’m not ITK I just know. Would represent terrible business for the club depending on what we’ve already received from Barca. Can’t see Edwards pushing this one. I’d let it go lads. As Ed says our system doesn’t suit him anymore. He’d have to seriously adapt and I don’t think it’s in his locker. I reckon he’ll end up at PSG as part of the Neymar deal.

It’s is a worrying trend at Liverpool. We really should be building on the success of last year. I can’t see us being 20 points clear again this season. If we want the league players like Lallana should be sold to fund the like of Fernandes. It’s a definite step up in class and it’s how teams have always done it. Klopp and Mr Edwards might rue these decisions come Xmas. Or I might be eating my hat by then. Who knows. I think the CS and SC games will show us where we are at as I can’t see us putting out last seasons first 11 for those games. Mané definywont be ready and Salah and Bobby might be a week off. It’s going to be interesting that’s for sure.

Sorry Tommy T but give ya head a wobble pal. You’re the reason the Ed’s get so frustrated on here with inane posts like yours. Most teams will have to strengthen because they were so far off us and City last season so it’s inevitable. Doesn’t mean they will gel and win the league instantly. Man Utd, Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea are all in periods of transition. Trust in our team and manager. If we
Make one signing then this is enough for me as that’s clearly all they think is needed.

Ed02 surely Klopp trying to “buy success” as you put it, is the same at all the clubs vying for the title/ top 4. There’s clearly youth development at Liverpool and I’m a believer in developing talent over buying it unnecessarily. I would have thought “buying success” is pretty much part of the modern game unfortunately.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp's selling point when he took the job was not to buy success. The stance of the club and Klopp as switched no to desparation for some sort of success - hence the spending on players and the outrageous agent fees they have been paying. It is nothing to do with any other clubs - and certainly Arsenal and Spurs have not been spending much.}

Ed02 would it be prudent to have a separate page on the site that has each player listed and their situation as you know it then you can refer people to that instead of getting wound up by the constant questioning. As it seems to be something people ask all the time on here. And the search function isn’t that great as it chucks up every result with that word in. Just a thought anyways. 🤘🏽.

{Ed002's Note - No, that would not work.}
