When ed1 or ed2 definitely confirm the coutinho deal then I will start to believe he's gone.
So eds is it true?


{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:27:25
Cheers man. Your the only guys I believe.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 18:44:30
Will he struggle to pass the medical what with his injury?

3.) 06 Jan 2018 18:57:26
Butt hurt heals quickly so I am afraid not.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 19:00:16
Players can still pass medicals even with an injury lol.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 19:04:57
Glad the whole saga is over and done with, I don’t understand his rush to go this month but hey ho. It’s done and dusted and we can move on without the distraction 👍.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 19:06:53
Every single new report confirms it but you only believe eds. Madness hahaha.

7.) 06 Jan 2018 19:13:10
It's on Barca's webpage, so pretty official now :)

8.) 06 Jan 2018 19:41:18
It was confirmed by Nike last week too haha.

9.) 06 Jan 2018 19:45:22
By thank God I'm bored with his sulking.

10.) 06 Jan 2018 19:54:43
Yeah scuffs on the bottom lip heal pretty fast.

11.) 06 Jan 2018 21:03:12
Barcelonaitus is easily curable. just need a wad of money, a new shirt an a trip abroad and coutinho will be fit as a fiddle.



05 Dec 2013 13:33:32
Hey eds.
Read somewere this morning that samid yesil is of interest to beskitas. Any truth? Wouldn't mind seeing the kid get a chance while sturridge is out.


{Ed002's Note - A representative of Besiktas has said that they have approached Liverpool apout Yesil - it has been suggested that Eintracht Braunschweig might also have an interest.}

1.) Many thanks ed.

2.) Do you think he will be allowed to go ed
we rate him highly so I can't see him leaving permanently

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. I would hope that the club talk to the player and explain what his future options might be. I suspect the won't offer him a run in the first team that is too often what the kids want - and why many need to move on.}

3.) Thanks Ed.

Would you expect this to be a loan deal? I'd be suprised if the club were open to a permanent deal.

{Ed002's Note - Both Besiktas and Eintracht Braunschweig would be looking for a permanent deal.}

4.) The kid would be wise to make the move! Look at Adam Morgan. Try and include a but back option of some sort for a certain fee.

Ed1, did you know about this news or has it come out of the blue?


{Ed001's Note - Klopp's deal? It has been on the table a while. Still a surprise as he had always said 7 years was enough at one place.}

1.) 13 Dec 2019 16:32:01
Yes Sorry ed I ment klopps deal.
Its fantasric news isn't it. Not that it matters, but will it make him one of the highest paid mangers around?

{Ed001's Note - he already was in the top 20, well 20th in fact, and it is a pay rise, so yes. Well deserved as well.}

2.) 13 Dec 2019 17:05:09
Definitely deserved.
Looking forward to many more years ahead.
Great news.



01 Dec 2019 14:13:13
Does anyone else think allison took 1 for the team yesterday? He knew the shot was taken, likely would of gone in, so he delibritley handballed it thinking it would of stopped them scoring.
Obviously it didn't tho from the resulting free kick.


1.) 01 Dec 2019 15:46:21
Slison definitely took one for the team and whilst i was initially annoyed by the goal they score. It has been one of my pet hates that after a team is penalised the ref then gives them all the time in the world to set up. I hope that what happened yesterday happens a lot more in the future. But not against us obvs.

2.) 01 Dec 2019 16:09:37
No, I don't think that were his thoughts. I think he rushed out, expecting to get to the ball first and when he didn't, it was just a goalkeepers instinct to "save" it.

He just got caught out positionally and had he stayed on his line, he might have saved the effort. Still, he's been so good at coming off his line to sweep the ball up, that I'd rather lose him for a game for this mishap than him being a static keeper that daren't leave his line.

3.) 01 Dec 2019 16:15:30
Allison Becker made a mistake that very nearly cost Liverpool yesterday.
Now he misses the derby match.
I only hope he learns from his error.
Any side that goes down to 10 men is always at a disadvantage
I bet the rest of the outfield players were not singing his praises and thinking he took one for the team.
Is he counting it as a clean sheet would be my question.

{Ed025's Note - the guy made a mistake KK its not that big a deal mate, and as for not being available for the everton could have a cardboard cut out of karius between the sticks and still win..

4.) 01 Dec 2019 17:44:07
In hindsight it would have been better to let it go in lol.

5.) 01 Dec 2019 22:23:47
OP, I thought the very same thing. If you see the play from behind the goal, you will see that Allison is caaught too high up the pitch. He then tries to retreat and gets caught in two minds. Thgen he just goes like "Screw it" and then raises both hands up knowing the ball would hit either one. He made a mistake and that can happen.

KK, chill out man. AB1 made a mistake and as Ed25 said, it's not that big of a deal so no need over-reacting to it. As to whether his team mates were signing his praises or not, no one on here including you or me, knows any of that so again, take a chill pill and relax. We won the game. We learn our lessons and move on. Peace!

6.) 02 Dec 2019 00:28:51
Exactly Red, Allison is very good at sweeping up behind the back 4 and with our high line that is invaluable if a little risky.
Thankfully he gets far more of those right than he does wrong so I think we should cut him some slack for making one mistake.
The guy is a world class keeper but even they make mistakes occasionally you know.



25 Jun 2019 12:36:39
Hey ed. Could you do an article on hicks and Gillette please.? If and when the time suits.
Maybe start of with how they came to buy it, what went wrong and how we came to sell.
I'm sure you would have some bits of info that we may not know about.


{Ed001's Note - added it to the list, though a lot of the questions will be answered by the Rick Parry one I am working on now.}

1.) 25 Jun 2019 13:56:25
Loved lawros commemt on hicks and Gillette: "Big hats and no cattle"

Then he let himself down on celebrity pointless, when asked for a country beginning with A he said *cringe spoiler* Alaska.



01 Apr 2019 07:40:33
Made up we won. But I'm just gona say it, spuds goal shouldn't have stood. The ball was still moving when kane took the free kick.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 07:56:06
i was thinkong, in terms of the "dark arts" hendo would have been better served getting in front of the free kick instead of having a groan. not blaming hendo. but me mate and I were saying that is something players from the elite clubs would do in that moment. kill momentum etc.

2.) 01 Apr 2019 08:05:54
There's plenty would argue that Liverpool are an elite club.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 09:16:12
Why are you not blaming Hendo? It was a very basic error he made. He is not 20 playing his first game. He is not offering anything going forward so the least he can do is to slow the game down when needed.

4.) 01 Apr 2019 09:20:39
It was a massive error from Henderson, he should have put his foot on the ball and stopped Kane playing the pass.

Spurs did it all afternoon - schoolboy error from Hendo.

5.) 01 Apr 2019 09:29:01
We had one go for us when Alisson done the same a few months ago. Swings and roundabouts.

6.) 01 Apr 2019 09:43:50
Ball moving, just a technicality. Hendo could have done better, but I think Trent was more at fault, if we have to find fault? He was coasting when watching Maura move into the box, he put his foot down when it was too late.
But, we won guys, though it was bloody nervy.

7.) 01 Apr 2019 09:53:48
Though I definitely agree madmax, I'm not bothered because we won. That's all I'm fussed about. We are grinding out the right results which will see us win the league in the end.

8.) 01 Apr 2019 09:55:36
And people talking about Hendo making a mistake, have you never made a mistake before? It happens, move on and appreciate what the team did yesterday. Even the best of players can make mistakes from time to time, they are only human.

9.) 01 Apr 2019 10:17:16
Salah, it's not just blaming Henderson it's the fact that he shouldn't be on the field. he shouldn't be starting in our team ahead of Fabinho. it's as simple as that. And when he he makes a mistake or has a bad game it just infuriates fans even more because of this fact. He has to be benched for the run in and replaced with Fab.

10.) 01 apr 2019 10:29:55
of course we all make mistakes but will he learn? it was a very basic error. the game yesterday, away at ot and everton are proof if any were needed that he should not be in the team ahead of fabs. we can't keep relying on luck to win these games. spurs even with all their midfield issues and son not playing due to tiredness bossed the second half. it was a mirror image of last seasons game at anfield. when hendo loses his full energy pressing he has nothing left to offer the team. he can't control a game it just gets away from him.

it will be no good saying all this at the end of the season we need to say it now before it costs us a trophy. fabs must play ahead of hendo.

11.) 01 Apr 2019 10:32:43
Nonsense, so you know more than Klopp and the medical staff? People are quick to point to his mistakes but never comment when he does something well.

The Hendo bashing is shameful, a sign of modern times unfortunately.

12.) 01 Apr 2019 10:48:22
Yeah He was at fault, but he still offers a lot on the pitch. I feel sorry for him as it gives the people who don't like him an excuse to bash him. All I was trying to point out rules of the game and the goal maybe wouldn't of happened. Like someone said tho swings and roundabouts, we've had our fair share of luck on a few things this year, can't get the rub of the green all the time.

13.) 01 Apr 2019 10:59:15
I think there are consequences if Henderson does not start, when able and fit, from the perspective of the captaincy. It's no big deal, because Milner has started and stepped in as captain many a game, but I just think it's an issue that Klopp does not want to deal with at this moment. I also think that in absolute "must win" situations Klopp will go with experience and the trio of Hendo-Milner-Wiji have plenty of it. He's done it so often before and he's going to continue doing it. I do agree that Fabinho should be starting every game, but maybe Klopp has decided to remove the shackles on him when he's had one full season under his belt.

14.) 01 Apr 2019 11:39:21
I remember a goal we scpred this season. Matip or lovren played the free kick whilw the ball was moving and we scored pn the counter attack. Swings and roundabouts.

15.) 01 Apr 2019 12:14:03
People do make mistakes when playing but stopping the opposition form taking a quick free quick is basic.

I actually thought Hendo had a good game, though for me, he should have come off at 60mins. Anyone at the game yesterday could see Spurs playing right though our midfield, we were not winning headers and we were slow to the second ball.

Fabinho should have been introduced earlier. But nevertheless, we rode our luck and won the game!

Roll on Friday night!

16.) 01 Apr 2019 13:01:27
I'd agree Fabinho should've been on the pitch but for Hendo? No. He should've been on instead of Milner for me. Yes Hendo made a mistake, it is what it is. What I don't like though is the Hendo haters. If he does something good he gets no praise, if he makes a simple mistake people are on him like flies on sh*t. Give the lad a break. Drogie, you are fair and I'm not directing this at you mate.

17.) 01 Apr 2019 13:32:06
You can't blame henderson for this. It was not a mistake, he could've just reacted quicker however Kane was very clever.

Bigger mistake I dare say was salah not passing to Mane to make it 2-0. Was selfish and took a shot that was blocked when Mane clearly had a better angle.

Doesnt matter that we won. Come on Spurs not time to beat Man city!

18.) 01 Apr 2019 14:27:18
Why all the jumping on a small number of mistakes by individuals? Since we beat Spurs - we did win you know - I’ve read posts criticising Alisson, TAA, Hendo, Salah, etc. Everyone of those players did more good things than bad in the game but there are some who are just waiting to jump all over them when they make a mistake. Why the negativity? Top of the PL, 6 games to go, in the QF of the CL, I couldn’t be happier.

19.) 01 Apr 2019 18:49:23
The Hendo haters nee to get over themselves and their personal vendetta against the lad. Some of your comments just should petulant and mean like a bunch of Mean Girls. I mean, do you guys actually watch him play hoping he makes a mistake so you can slash him? If that is what you do then I think some of you are obsessed with him which is a pity, FOR YOU.

Yes, he made a mistake. So What? Lloris cost his team the game BUT you don't see Spurs fans giving him loads, do you? Pathetic. "He offered nothing". News Flash: None of the starting midfield offered anything either BUT you chose to slate Hendo and leave the others scott free. I wonder why?

Also, I don't care for the ref error cos it happens all the time. It was up to Hendo to do the most basic of things and stand in front of Kane to give us time to get set defensively. there is nothing "dark arts" about it cos it is taught at every level of football. I agree that Klopp should not play that mid. 3 again cos it no longer works and that was clear for all to see. We won and and that is all that counts and we can work on things with a smile on our faces. Also, Hendo is capt. and that is that so you all better put a sock in it cos Klopp ain't changing his mind anytime soon on that topic. Peace!

20.) 01 Apr 2019 18:51:32
Exactly WW. It seems people just enjoy complaining over nothing and they forgot we actually beat a good PL team yesterday.

21.) 01 Apr 2019 19:53:01
WW, these guys would rather wallow in their own self pity than muster the bottle to stand and fight, just like our boys (Hendo included) and the manager are doing week in, week out.

22.) 06 Apr 2019 08:16:25
well there is making mistakes and then therr is just plain trolling.
also we aren't an elite club yet.



09 Oct 2018 01:03:44
Hope you've got plenty of articles coming up ed to get us through this international break.
I don't know why but these breaks are getting worse every time. At least when England play I know I'm guaranteed 2 hrs good sleep it's that boring.


{Ed001's Note - yes mate I have a few I intend to do, if time allows.}

Without it causing to much trouble ed, are we paying more than the reported 7.5million?


{Ed002's Note - That was about the Liverpool starting price in negotiations. Until the TMS is updated - perhaps by the end of the first week in January - will I not know the actual agreed deal (including add ons (e.g. for appearances)).}

U passed my test ed.
Goes to show how much I know about footy.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know why the media keep saying it too. He played in the centre of midfield with freedom at Leicester, at Chelsea he plays to the right hand side of the centre of midfield. Jorginho, Kovacic or Gilmour have been the ones playing the holding role at Chelsea, though as a playmaker rather than as a defensive midfielder.}

How much was hamann smoking?
Was he just a casual every now and then or a pack a day kind of guy?


{Ed001's Note - he would sneak off for a ciggy at half time in the toilets apparently, so that sounds like more than a casual every now and then smoker.}
