I heard from a good source this morning that Rafa wants to take Harry Wilson on loan next season, it would be an excellent move for him imo.


{Ed002's Note - I am far from convinced that Rafa Benitez will be at Newcastle next season, but Newcastle may well prove to be a good option for Wilson.}

1.) 05 Apr 2019 10:19:10
Thanks Ed, it’s funny as I was watching highlights of the premier league season 08/ 09 and there were Newcastle fans protesting to get Ashley out and that he was ruining the club, ten years later it’s still the same, quite shocking really.

As for Rafa he’s an outstanding manager albeit a bit negative, who I have no doubt could push them into the very competitive top 6 with funds, have a good weekend yourself and all the other Ed’s.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

2.) 05 Apr 2019 10:23:42
Rafa is looking for move to France.

3.) 05 Apr 2019 10:24:42
How good is Harry's French?



06 Mar 2019 07:51:22
Bruno fernandes again linked with us in the gossip columns, could any of the eds shine any light on this?

Any posters or eds know what kind of player he is and is he better than what we have?


{Ed002's Note - Bruno Fernandes is of interest to Everton and Liverpool have certainly looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA.}

1.) 06 Mar 2019 08:07:19
Thanks ed.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 13:03:38
But they do see the value in 400k a week for treatment table legend aaron ramsey 😂😂.

3.) 07 Mar 2019 07:52:12
Love it beef!



27 Feb 2019 11:15:30
Nice to see you around ed002, bild are reporting that werner has agreedd to join bayern this summer. Do you know if this is true or not? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - All I know is that Forster has met yet again and this time Bayern Munich have put an acceptable package together - now they need to settle on a fee with his club. This has all been expected, but nothing is finalised.}

1.) 27 Feb 2019 16:34:20
Pesonally i think insigne will be the no1 target. Napoli bid for icardi. Read into that what you will.

2.) 27 Feb 2019 18:35:46
I will read past the £100m transfer fee and take it with a pinch of salt.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 18:35:30
Thanks ed, and i can't see that rio the guys nearly 30.

4.) 28 Feb 2019 11:50:02
Hello Ed002! Apart from Werner are we interested in any other forward? Are we interested in Luka Jovic or Piatek?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in Jovic who would certainly not want to move to sit on the bench. Piatek moved last month and won’t be joining Liverpool. Insigne is liked by Klopp but he would be a Salah or mane replacement, is getting on a bit and has a huge asking price, so I would scratch him. Liverpool has Brewster waiting in the wings and I would think he provides a very good option - else he might want to consider his options.}

5.) 28 Feb 2019 16:44:21
thanks Ed002!



13 Jan 2018 18:19:21
Alright lads maybe related to what macca said but in hearing from my friend who's father works for the club that we are going to try and pip arsenal for Malcolm. Klopp feels him or mahrez could play salahs position while salahs slots in at cam or secondary striker when we play 442.


{Ed002's Note - There was a meeting regarding Malcom in London late morning tody. But not with Liverpool.}

1.) 13 Jan 2018 18:41:56
First time poster. Been following this sight for years. I absilu6ely love it. In response to what lerchy mentioned. I understand from someone who knows a bit that Arsenal are getting Malcolm. Utd in for Sanchez and greizan will be going Barcelona in the summer. Nothing on Liverpool though. Keep up the relentless work eds.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Dudley.}

2.) 13 Jan 2018 18:46:35
So Klopp has explained his tactical thinking for general circulation around all staff at LFC, yet even professional journalists (and Macca) are keeping quiet on the identity of our targets.

Unlikely I’m sure you would agree.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 21:47:22
Shame its not us, he is an excellent prospect and will light up the prem, he is still very young too and can only get better.



28 Dec 2017 14:21:42
ed 002, is there any truth to a report that we are scouting monaco's fabinho with a view to a summer move. him and keita as our holding cms would be beautiful. de vrij and van dijk behind. pipe dream or reality?


{Ed002's Note - No, I am not aware of Liverpool scouting Fabinho. There is declared interest from a couple of sides and Manchester City May also look to him. But nothing from Liverpool.}

1.) 28 Dec 2017 14:36:42
thanks happy new year to you and the other eds.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

2.) 28 Dec 2017 15:37:09
Hi Ed’s, in reply do you think there is any interest in De Vrij since VVD? Cheers, have a Happy New Year!

{Ed002's Note - It won't be clear until January 1.}

3.) 28 Dec 2017 17:29:27
Cheers Ed002. Have a happy new year!

{Ed002's Note - And you. thanks.}

16 May 2019 19:38:02
Brandt apparently saying he wants Dortmund now.

Anybody got some other suggestions?


1.) 16 May 2019 20:29:17
Lots of players don't seem to want to fight for their place. It will be easier for him to go to Dortmund but if that's his choice then he is not right for us.

I like him as a footballer and hope this is just the usuasl media bull. They have a massive game at the weekend and am sure he is not thinking about the move this week.

Ed001 mentioned he liked Fekier as he really wanted to come so maybe we revisit.

2.) 16 May 2019 20:37:39
Monaco? Oh do you means players.

3.) 16 May 2019 20:50:00
If Brandt isn't attainable my next choice would be David Brooks.

4.) 16 May 2019 21:02:52
MK SCOUSER i really rate this lad and think he will go on to be better then maddison.

5.) 16 May 2019 21:18:18
I like hime MK but he would need at least a season to bed in. But I suppose you could say that about most players. Fabinho, Keita, Ox inc.

6.) 16 May 2019 21:38:06
I agree John and Mark. His ceiling is as high as any young British attacker around. He sees everything happening around him and anticipates what is yet to happen. His weight of pass and decision making is just superb. At 21 years old, he already makes people around him look better which is a very rare ability in a player.

He would definitely need a year to adapt though because in the Bournemouth side he plays quite high up, whereas I'd see him in the same vein as how Klopp coached Wijnaldum and Oxlade-Chamberlain to convert from wide attackers to playing in the midfield 3. It would be well worth the bedding in period though. We don't need any big time Charlie or super-star type signings. Just talented young players who will buy in to Klopp's philosophy.

I doubt we're even interested in Brooks though so It's all hypothetical!

7.) 16 May 2019 22:24:56
I actually really like that as a suggestion MK, big fan of Brooks. He's not on Brandt's level, but still a great young talent. Shame Maddison would definitely be priced out of a move.

I'm interested to see who we actually go for, can't see too many realistic options in the market that would actually challenge the first team, especially since Shaqiri can play there. Hoping its a Fabinho situation where it comes as a fantastic surprise.

8.) 16 May 2019 22:59:22

9.) 17 May 2019 03:12:39
I agree with MK, Brooks definitely looks the part and from I've seen, he looks phenomenal. Maybe someone for the following year?

10.) 17 May 2019 03:41:50
I read a similar news in Sky if I'm not mistaken.

It stated he would prefer Dortmund if he is to leave Bayer, but he might stay if Bayer managed to get a CL spot, though he don't mind to stay even if Bayer only settle for a Europa League spot.

My reaction was "errrrrrrr"

11.) 17 May 2019 05:08:58
Nabil Fekir.

12.) 17 May 2019 06:31:51
This one going to devide opinion


But not at the asking price. Say 50m.

{Ed025's Note - hes a big fish in a small pond which suits him ravi, and where would he even fit in mate?..

13.) 17 May 2019 07:42:46
I enjoy watching Zaha play, but his lack of end product at his age is deeply concerning. No one doubts what he can do in a one on one, its after that where he falls seriously short. Plus Liverpool seem to be targeting an AM who can cover the wings which doesn't apply to Zaha. We'd be spending "50m" (its been quoted as double that) on a backup winger who isn't likely to progress that much, especially with even less game time.

But I get it Ravi haha, skilful players are always appealing as a fan. Sure, enough pints in and I'll be throwing on Ben Arfa compilations and demanding we sign him.

14.) 17 May 2019 08:31:01
He looks good in the Palace team as they play to suit him. He doesn't get anywhere near enough goals and doesn't work hard enough. No thanks.

Lacazette would be better IMO.

15.) 17 May 2019 08:50:02
No Zaha please.

16.) 17 May 2019 09:44:22
If a Brandt purchase does not work out then it's best to go back in for Fekir. I'm sure the scouts have had a look at him over the season and seen his play and how his knees have held up. I'd take a player who really wants to play for you over a player with mixed feelings, any day of the week.

17.) 17 May 2019 09:49:22
Love the idea of Brooks in a Liverpool shirt.

18.) 17 May 2019 09:50:24
Ravi, Ed is correct. Zaha is exactly that, a big fish in a small pond and is nowhere NEAR good enuff for the level of intensity and rhythm at which we currently play. I think people need to understand that right now, LFC is operating at the very highest level of PL and European football, full stop. As a result, we need to think big and wide when we talk about who we want to come to us now.

Players like Zaha who are nothing but one-eyed kings in the land of the blind, are not wanted here, IMO. We need if not proven, young and talented players who have shown their mettle for both club and country. We need those who have played in gig dometic and European comps. games such as the CL, EL and/ or international footie. Players like Brandt, Fekir fit this profile and are the types we should be aiming for. The likes of Brooks and Maddison tho talented, need to do more and show more over a longer period of time so they can prove they can make the step up to the type of club we have become. The era of one-season wonders are over or at least should be, IMO.

{Ed001's Note - I don't get the love for Zaha, he is awful.}

19.) 17 May 2019 10:06:46
Lerchy I’ve just read also that Brandt wants to go to Dortmund mate. Hope not, really want us to sign him I think he would bring cover in so many positions.

20.) 17 May 2019 11:06:07
Ed025 was spot on about Zaha big fish small pond.

21.) 17 May 2019 10:45:48
I still think Brandt will happen. Nothing to base this on, just a hunch or maybe wishful thinking. He'd be perfect for Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - There are two offers on the table already - and if he is to leave Bayer they would rather he moved away from Germany for the obvious financial reasons. If Liverpool want to do something - then now would be the time to act and come up with a decent offer.}

22.) 17 May 2019 11:58:00
Sounds like we need to act quickly then Ed before it’s to late if he has 2 offers on the table already.

23.) 17 May 2019 11:59:54
Ha decent offer Ed002 not the way that they have messed club's around lately but hopefully they'll have learned.

24.) 17 May 2019 12:02:32
Thank you for that Ed.

25.) 17 May 2019 12:49:02
If zaha is awful ed how come he rips us too shreds every time we play against him?

{Ed001's Note - I have never seen him rip us to shreds, nor has anyone noticed him do that within the club. You live in a strange world of fantasy if you think a player that has what 1 (I think) goal against us in his career is ripping us to shreds every time we play against him. A few fancy tricks before losing the ball is not ripping anyone to shreds. He may look good but he is not effective at anything other than diving.}

26.) 17 May 2019 16:08:39
Brandt off to Dortmund to replace Sancho who’s off to ManU?

27.) 17 May 2019 16:13:08
I know we're (or at least we've been) interested in Brandt, do you think we'll actually make a move and table an offer at this time as you suggested we would have to, ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I doubt it as it stands right now.}

28.) 17 May 2019 16:38:41
Thanks for the replies regarding zaha.

He certainly is a player that has his doubters.

I fully agree his tracking back is poor to say the least. That is the only question mark i have over him.

Finishing will improve if he played for us as he will get fat more chance.

But imo, he could become under klopp guidance one of the top players in england.

He has all the raw attributes that just need fine tuning.

I think with the team we have now, its word taking the risk.

At worse we end up with a player who will certainly add to our squad depth.

At best he can push us that last extra hard.

I don't think he fits into klopps mindset/ style so won't happen.

If it did i would be chuffed.

29.) 17 May 2019 16:43:14
Owe. Dagger in the heart Ed. I thought for sure we would bid for him. Is there anyone else for LW / AM position we are or could well look at? I guess the Sharkopod when you get chance to do it would answer most of these questions mate.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing beyond those I have previously mentioned.}

30.) 17 May 2019 08:09:34
On the bench ed25.

{Ed025's Note - but would you pay £50m+ for a guy to sit on the bench cobra?..i dont think so mate..

31.) 17 May 2019 21:38:36
Son for me.
If we can poach him from Spurs. He offers cover for a variety of positions 👍.

32.) 18 May 2019 04:28:55
Would never happen but Son would be a dream signing IMO.

33.) 17 May 2019 20:49:50
Spot on, Ed25. Would make absolutely no business or footballing sense to put a 50m player as a back up. City can do that cos they are funded by a country's government and we all know some of hose players are now wanting to go elsewhere. We can't do that, I'm afraid and I would not want us to anyway.

34.) 19 May 2019 07:53:42
I agree with those who see zaha as very over hyped. Looks lively with his style but doesn't hurt teams enough.

Similar to people raving about bolasie when he could sprint down the line with a step over and turn back and forth without ever actually offering end product.



09 May 2019 22:27:17
An update on the Anfield situation for the match!

It will be showed at the m&s bank arena on Liverpool waterfront, 9000 allocated tickets to be announced and will be on sale next week although it doesn't say when.


1.) 09 May 2019 22:51:09
Formally the echo arena.



04 May 2019 13:47:45
Ox on Klopp: "He always used to say to me, 'What's the difference between you and Mo? Why does he score so many goals? Because I watch you both shoot in training and you're just as good. It's because Mo believes he can and you don't. Simple. ".


1.) 04 May 2019 14:11:32
Where did you read this? Ox also plays in a much deeper role than Mo.

2.) 04 May 2019 15:16:22
Epic, Ox played behind the CF (Bobbie) last season as the most advanced midfielder in the midfield 3 hence pretty close to Salah, where he was ripping teams apart (pep NEVER had an answer for him all last season vs City) so he did not play as deep as you think.

3.) 04 May 2019 15:44:25
In the echo 😂.

4.) 04 May 2019 17:33:19
Exactly RedWolf. That's why we never missed Coutinho last season after he left. While perhaps not being as good as Coutinho offensively, Ox offered good enough support to the front 3.



18 Apr 2019 12:33:12
Hey lads have you seen the new home kit for next season? 😍 the goalkeeper kit looks beautiful too. As much as I don't like the quality new balance don't half make beautiful kits. Weren't we meant to be getting a new kit manufacturer?


{Ed001's Note - lovely mate but the deal was always to include next season.}

1.) 18 Apr 2019 13:08:07
Love the gk Jersey but I don't like the outfield one's, looks too 'retro' for me. Maybe I'm being a miserable so and so but it really isn't doing it for me.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 13:12:04
Ahh fair enough Ed cheers, hope you have a great Easter weekend.

{Ed001's Note - I never knew it was Easter. That explains the eggs in the shops. I just never thought when I saw them, other than to be disappointed not to see any Buttons eggs, which are clearly the best eggs ever.}

3.) 18 Apr 2019 13:23:04
In my opinion the New Balance kits have been fantastic. Some people may not care what the boys look like on the pitch but for me kits are very important in defining the clubs identity and seperating them from the rest, something the New Balance kits definitely give us. You can tell they do actually try to come up with something different from the rest. If we were to go to Nike for money we would look like every other team out on the pitch and for me that isn’t good enough because liverpool are special!

Kits are an important part of the clubs history. As the years roll by the allow us to look back, point at moments in time and remember fondly the memories associated with a particular season. Would anybody deny that reminiscing about Beardlsey, Barnes and Aldridge would be slightly dented if their Candy kits were swapped out for that yellow and red monstrosity from 2014/ 15? They just don’t make them like they used to and its sad. Not to mention that seemingly every time our kit designers have a stinker our season seems to suffer, whereas a nice looking kit always seems to be associated with positive memories (contrast 2014/ 15 and 2017/ 18 and you’ll see what i’m talking about) .

Obviously it is all about the health and growth of the club going forward and that none of this really matters in contributing towards success on the pitch. But in this ever more corporate and sanitised world of football we have to cling onto what little culture and individuality we have left, and i honestly feel the special treatment we get from New Balance in their kit design goes a long way to preserving our identity. If we were to go towards Nike then it would feel more like us shifting towards a faceless corporate entity like City. If we do decide to leave New Balance, i hope we choose Adidas as our partner, a brand with legitimate history behind Liverpool football club, the city and if we are honest, the North of England as a whole.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't mind if the deal with Nike was for the Jordan brand, rather than Nike itself. The stuff they did for PSG was beautiful kit, only ruined by the PSG badge on it.}

4.) 18 Apr 2019 13:58:21
What ruined the PSG kit was the image of the overrated Brazilian p**** Neymar wearing it.

{Ed001's Note - fair point.}

5.) 18 Apr 2019 13:59:16
you can go to an interview wearing that GK suit! It's that good.

6.) 18 Apr 2019 14:15:27
The kit was ruined more when the overrated guy fell to the ground. jesus does he even know how much a Jordan costs?

7.) 18 Apr 2019 15:03:20
Shame, i like the current kit. I like the collar, its cool.

8.) 18 Apr 2019 15:16:20
Ed, even more gutting that the buttons are no longer inside the egg but just in standard packets in the box. The magic of smashing into the egg has been lost!


{Ed001's Note - no way! Life is not fair.}

9.) 18 Apr 2019 15:18:32
You seen the paisley signature in the collar? 🙏.

10.) 18 Apr 2019 17:42:43
If the leaked NB kit I saw online is what it looks like it is then, I am getting one esp. if we win the PL. It is super awesome.

11.) 18 Apr 2019 19:16:11
Ed1 - given how early shops start promoting holidays you'd be forgiven for thinking Easter is months away! Shops will have Christmas decorations up next week!

{Ed001's Note - not here they don't mate. Well they might do actually I just don't notice.}



17 Apr 2019 11:05:47
Hello Ed 02, after donny van de beeks excellent performance last night along with the rest of Ajax I just wanted to ask if Liverpool have any interest in him? We seem to be linked with a few ams lately, Brandt, fernandes. Could we add him to the maybe list? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Just a random player. No Liverpool has no interest but other do.}

1.) 17 Apr 2019 11:23:53
Ajax were fantastic.

2.) 17 Apr 2019 11:50:24
Great to see Ajax back and such a young team tearing it up in the CL. Their enthusiasm reminds me of our own run last year, Let’s hope they fall at the final hurdle against a still young, exciting, but one year more mature side - Liverpool!

3.) 17 Apr 2019 12:23:50

I’d say his passion range is hindered at full back and he’s also too good a player to be a fb. I’d much rather him pinging them balls from the middle myself he’d open teams up left and right. I also think he’s poor defensively especially positioning.
