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.

I'm sure there are a few that will agree, but I have to pinch myself everyday to know that we have Jurgen klopp as our manager. Not bothered if or who we buy, the guy works with what he's got and does great.
I'm looking forward to the new season and genuinely think we will compete on all fronts.
Just enjoy the few years left we have of Jurgen as it may not be as much fun if and when he leaves. We've been spoilt last few years, and our rivals are buying to try and overtake us, not compete. They know that having jurgen as out manager is a massive boost.


1.) 04 Sep 2021 14:12:09
Finally, a wise post.

{Ed014's Note - there’s been a few Salah but most drowned in that massive ocean of self pity and despair that’s flooded this page.

It’s been truly painful to edit. 😫

2.) 04 Sep 2021 14:32:10
Klopp has taken us from the top 8 mess Rodgers left us in, to consistent title contenders capable of finishing 3rd without our best midfielders or centre backs. You only have to go back to 2014-2015, for a time where our whole season hinged on the fitness of Daniel Sturridge.

We've gone from a back 5 of Markovic/ Ibe, Can, Toure, Sakho and Moreno to a back 4 of Trent, Matip, Virgil and Robbo. From praying Coutinho scored a screamer or Sturridge was fit, we now have Mane, Jota, Firmino and Salah all capable of match winning moments of brilliance.

What Klopp has already done for us is amazing and I strongly believe we'll win another 3 or 4 trophies before he hangs up his LFC cap in 2024.

3.) 04 Sep 2021 15:49:52
I’d maybe accept your point if you hadn’t mentioned Markovic and Ibe as part of a back four. Are you sure you’ve ever watched Liverpool play?

4.) 04 Sep 2021 15:52:00
Klopps been the best thing to happen to this club in 30 years. Yes we won things under Houlier and Rafa but Klopp has won it all whilst entertaining us. And on a fractional budget of other clubs.

5.) 04 Sep 2021 16:29:18
Redmersey, you obviously have bad memory and eyesight. A) Rodgers absolutely 100% played Markovic, Ibe and even Sterling at right wing back B) I clearly wrote back 5.

Little advice, you should check your facts before you try and get smart.

6.) 04 Sep 2021 16:31:52
REDMERSEY he said "We've gone from a back 5 of Markovic/ Ibe, Can, Toure, Sakho and Moreno" not back 4. xD.

7.) 04 Sep 2021 16:41:56
Red Mersey, admittedly, Markovic and Ibe were more suited as wingers but they were utilised, on ocassions, as wing backs. I think MK is highlighting extremes woth those two, but Can as a CB was something more commonplace in his final season.

8.) 04 Sep 2021 17:23:09
Considering even Bobby was played at right wing back I'm pretty sure the only requirement Rodgers had was that you had to have a right foot to play there.

9.) 04 Sep 2021 17:38:47
Yeah it was shocking zpecialone. Markovic, Ibe and Sterling played about 30 games between them that season as right or left wing backs. I nearly lost the will to watch football!

BobbyF is correct, i was highlighting the extremes to show how bad things sometimes were to how good things are now. Take last season for example where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Yet we still finished 3rd in the end. It's a remarkable turnaround to when we needed everything to go right to get near the top 4.

10.) 04 Sep 2021 20:56:38
Fully agree, MK and JK23. BR was very incompetent and had a huge lack of humility and maturity as a manager and he could have won that title in 13/ 14 had he remained humble and smart instead of always having to make things about himself.

On the topic, I remember when Ancelotti was approached as well as Klopp and I said I wanted Klopp all day over him. I will be forever grateful to John W Henry for allowing himself to be convinced to hire Klopp against his initial concerns cos heaven knows where we would have been had we taken in someone else BUT I guess FSG Out, init?

Our Klopp is a gem despite his flaws and the moment he came in, LFC became better for it right there. It took a while and some serious setbacks BUT he got us to the promise land while playing the best footie I have ever seen in the PL. Let’s just enjoy his presence while he’s still here and hope he can bring us more PL/ CL glory. Bravo, Herr Klopp.

{Ed0666's Note - an elite said no to us mate.

11.) 05 Sep 2021 11:01:21
yea I remember Markovic playing at fullback. lol maybe redmersey was doing something else that day haha.

12.) 05 Sep 2021 20:06:28
Ed666, I don’t understand your response, sorry.

{Ed0666's Note - I just read my response I don’t think Alan Turing would have understood it 😂. Sorry mate I meant to say Ancelotti refused us.



23 May 2021 09:49:51
Call me old fashioned, but I'm looking forward to all the games kicking off at the same time, instead of 1 game every few hours.


1.) 23 May 2021 10:32:53
Old fashioned I agree love all matches on at the same time.

2.) 23 May 2021 11:27:39
Madmax for the cost of paying for sky and BT sport for me the staggered kick offs are a god send as it allows me to watch plenty of football if I wish. If all games were at the same time week in week out then it would be costing over hundred pound a month just to watch LFC. And there’s nothing better than a hungover Sunday watching a day of football rather than just one 90 min game.

3.) 23 May 2021 11:32:56
TV, Laptop and Ipad at the ready.

4.) 23 May 2021 13:47:44
The appeal might just be too much to resist.

5.) 23 May 2021 14:28:30
For the last game of the season yeah. Not normally though.



13 Dec 2019 12:42:37
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.

Would this make klopp the best paid manager in the world?

No disrespect to barca, but who would we want in exchange from there squad.
There's not many we would want, dembele or the young lad gavi. The rest wouldn't be right.


{Ed002's Note - Dembele will be out of contract unless he signs a new one. Gavi will not be moving to Liverpool. They have plenty to offer if Liverpool make him available.}

Bale wanted to go to China, it was Madrid that stopped it as they didn't want to give him away for free.

With ed1 on this, raise my kid to have manners and be polite.
Life lesson for the kid really. Maybe one day the kid may be famous himself and realise what a pain it is.

If he was available for 30mil I'd take him. Was a good player. Needs a proper coach to sort him out.

I would keep milner, neco and firmino.
Milner and firmino if willing to take smaller roles would be ace, neco is a great backup.
Agree on the rest,
