Hi Ed's and Reds.

As you know I very rarely post "rumours" however I've heard from my source at Swansea that us, along with a number of Prem clubs have been closely watching Ollie Watkins of Brentford. Now I know we watch loads of players all the time, so I'm not saying there is concrete interest, but I'm wondering if any of the Ed's had heard his name mentioned in relation to us scouting him? And if he is any good?



{Ed002's Note - Others I am aware of, not Liverpool.}

1.) 15 Apr 2018 17:21:16
Ok thanks Ed.



28 Apr 2017 15:13:03
Good afternoon Ed's and reds.

I very rarely post rumours as I don't have many sources.

However, I have just been confidently told that Aaron Creswell will be a Liverpool player in the summer. Do you know if there is any truth in this?



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool and West Ham agreeing the transfer of Aaron Creswell this summer.}

1.) 28 Apr 2017 15:44:53
Ok thanks for the swift reply Ed.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 16:26:08
good player.

3.) 28 Apr 2017 17:25:55
That would make no sense to me.

4.) 28 Apr 2017 18:17:17
He's had shocking season, small upgrade on Milner.



28 Jul 2016 20:28:16
Evening Eds and Reds.

My pretty reliable source at Swansea has said that he has heard that both us and West Ham have enquired to Leeds about the possible sale of Charlie Taylor.

Any truth in this eds?

Cheers, YNWA.


{Ed001's Note - last I heard we hadn't, but since then he has made it known he wants to leave and turned down a new contract. So it is entirely possible.}

1.) 28 Jul 2016 22:50:47
How good is he Ed?

{Ed001's Note - not sure, only seen him a couple of times, but the Leeds fans on their site are happy to see him go, which is never a good sign!}

2.) 28 Jul 2016 23:46:15
Do you rate him Ed01? Other posters?

{Ed001's Note - not seen enough of him sorry.}

3.) 29 Jul 2016 05:18:15
Are the fans happy for him to go because of the money he would bring or because they don't rate him? There's a difference. I don't want Coutinho to go but if a mega Sterling type offer came in I would be happy for him to leave.

{Ed001's Note - he is in the final year of his contract, he won't bring much money. They are happy to see him go anyway.}

4.) 29 Jul 2016 08:01:05
Ed001 Do you believe about klopp saying our transfer business is over now (excluding the players going out) and klopp will stick with moreno and turn milner as backup fullback?

{Ed001's Note - nope, we are still trying to sign full backs.}

5.) 29 Jul 2016 08:16:55
Same old story.

We spend money on areas that aren't really a priority then the 1 area we needed more than anything (LB) we try and spend as little as possible.

We would have been better just keeping Smith.

6.) 29 Jul 2016 09:09:06
Can he play attacking midfield? 🤔.

7.) 29 Jul 2016 10:30:03
We not only need a LB but need backup too. Moreno has shown his lack of defensive ability all too often.

8.) 29 Jul 2016 12:38:56
The transfer windo does not close until the end of August. Plenty more suprises to come in the transfer market yet. Have patience. We will sign a LB before then pkus 1/ 2 more will leave.

9.) 29 Jul 2016 16:30:32
The internets says he can play as a full back or a left winger which immediately makes me think

RUN! Run as far away from this deal as possible and never look back 😄.

10.) 30 Jul 2016 12:21:13
Modern football sadly, apparently the first job of a full back is to be a winger and if they can't defend then that's a minor issue. Frustrates the life out of me.



06 May 2016 16:35:16
Hey Eds and Reds. Still buzzing from last night.

Now as you know from my lack of posts on the rumours page, my insider knowledge is evidently non-existing and I'll only post if I hear something.

Now I previously mentioned from my contact at the Swans that they are looking to take Joey Allen back this summer.

The same contact has also informed me that Swansea and Liverpool are 2 of 3 premiership clubs with concrete interest in Lukasz Teodorczyk, a polish striker playing in Ukraine. Now I had to look him up as I've never heard of him or seen him play. I was wondering if any of the Eds or reds had seen him or know much about the lad?

Keep the faith guys! YNWA.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any English interest in Teodorczyk at this time - last up it was Wigan, Sheffield United and Wolves but he moved to Dinamo Kyiv.}

1.) 06 May 2016 23:34:25
lol not going to happen.

2.) 07 May 2016 09:47:02
Sure he played and scored against Everton last season. Name rings a bell.



15 Aug 2015 08:49:34
Good Morning Ed's and Reds.

Unfortunately the only rumours I get from my source are Swansea City related.

He told me last night that the Swans have made tentative enquiries in to the possibility of taking Allen back to the Liberty Stadium but were told by us that he isn't for sale.

Not sure how reliable this is, just wondering if you had heard anything?


{Ed001's Note - I already mentioned there were talks a while back regarding him, back then we were considering selling him as Kovacic was possible. Now that has died, Allen is no longer available.}

Afternoon Ed02,

Hope you had a great festive period and New Year!

I was just wondering now that we have entered the transfer window again, if there's ever been quite a big transfer that has caught you off guard / didn't see coming?

Whilst I know you can't know everything about every player / club, nor do I expect you've known about every single transfer, I also respect how much you do actually know, so was just wondering was there ever a fairly big transfer, say top half premier league/ European Level that ever made you think "well I wasn't expecting that? "

Hope all is well! Cheers.


{Ed002's Note - I am not really try and provide deatils of all transfers just to try and relay what I understand to be going on, so there are plenty which are a surprise. Jose Antonio Reyes to Arsenal in 2004 was a major surprise.}

1.) 02 Jan 2019 17:09:18
Surely Fabinho deal caught us all out. Not one report about it. I then left to go play indoor football, and came home to see deal was done!

{Ed025's Note - that caught me out as well coco, i thought he was going to accrington mate.. :)

2.) 02 Jan 2019 17:30:49
Caught utd of guard too ;)

3.) 02 Jan 2019 17:32:24
Morientes shocked me, I didn't spend every day of transfer season checking on rumours like I do now. But I was surprised when we signed him, he was such a big star and a bit of a flop unfortunately.

Ballotelli too.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 17:40:16
Konchesky shocked me. Not in a good way.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 19:46:33
Oussama Assaidi came from outer space for me.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 19:46:45
Biggest shock I remember is Assaidi. Hadn't been mentioned or possibly even heard of until his photo at the signing was released.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 06:51:18
Torres to Chelsea shocked me big time : (.

8.) 04 Jan 2019 00:10:30
Fowler’s return,
Andy Carroll,
Antonio Nunez.



22 Mar 2018 10:08:23
Morning Ed01,

Hope all is well.

Away from the normal questions, I was just wondering what impact do you think, if any, has Peter Moore had on the club in any way?



{Ed001's Note - hard to say but he at least got the van Dijk deal done. However we are still agreeing sponsorship deals with morally dubious (to say the least) companies so that has not improved. Far too soon to have any judgements over him though.}

1.) 22 Mar 2018 10:41:50
Are there any morals left in football Ed? We as fans would love to think so, but are we living in dreamland? Not defending any sponsorships. Just a general comment.

{Ed001's Note - yes. Lots of clubs and people in the game still have morals and are careful of things like sponsorships.}

2.) 22 Mar 2018 10:47:01
Parry or Moore Ed😁.

{Ed001's Note - you are thinking of David Moores mate not Peter Moore our newish CEO.}

3.) 22 Mar 2018 10:52:03
Dunno what you’re on about ed1. Anyway I’m getting my name down for the proposed newly developed Annie rd stand, sorry it’s the Vladimir Putin stand now of course isn’t it, well worth the sponsorship and will sit fabulously with the new Main, sorry Assad, stand.



27 Feb 2018 20:54:17
Mk, for reasons unknown to me, I believe my apology hasn't been posted by the Ed's, or maybe the entire thread has been deleted.

Anyhow, I would like to state that I did apologise in response to your reply to me.

Do I disagree with your opinions, yes. Do I agree with them, yes. Although I'm confident I don't dig at you every day, I apologise if you feel that way.

I work in an environment were bullying can be at it's most extreme form, so if you think that my replies that are intended as banter, hence most of them having a ;) in them, are on the lines of "bullying" then I'm saddened and I am sincerely sorry.

I do think that in the way I may have taken your posts in the wrong context, I believe you've taken mine in the wrong way too.

I will continue to agree and disgaeee with your opinions.

No harm or offence intended, my apologies if any caused.


{Ed025's Note - that thread was deleted mate..

1.) 27 Feb 2018 21:28:36
Nice one smplfc, good lad.

Was it the top 20 lfc players ever that was deleted? Sorry if I caused any problems, it was only for a bit of fun.

I've been out, would have loved to see the results.

2.) 27 Feb 2018 21:34:18
Apology accepted and i am glad I've just misconstrued your comments. It just seems like every day i come on here and I'm told I'm a teachers pet, or my opinions are copies of Ed001, or my opinions are ridiculous "as usual", or my opinion is irrelevant because I'm young, or I've created a fake account to back myself up etc. All of that has been levelled at me in the last few weeks and it just makes you think "why do i bother". I've given up hours and hours on end to write articles on request and then i log on to see somebody saying this rubbish instead of just debating my actual point.

It was too much and i felt like i was being singled out, which is in essence, bullying. But i respect a man who apologises especially when things have been misinterpreted and they still hold their hands up. I don't mind banter, but when it comes from the same 3 or 4 posters all the time and they never have anything constructive or positive to say, it doesn't always come across that way.

Water under the bridge. I've had a bit of a bad day, so sorry if i over reacted.

{Ed033's Note - The 3 or 4 posters should get the Captain Needa treatment. 😋

3.) 27 Feb 2018 22:02:52
Thought as much Ed.

Yes it was Super mate. I think the final results were:

1. vignal
2. arphexard
3. coutinho
4. diomede
5. kromkamp

But don’t quote me on that ;)

4.) 27 Feb 2018 22:13:20
Salah, go into my profile, and click on my last 5 banter replies. You will be able to view the thread that way, but your OP won't be visible, is all.

5.) 27 Feb 2018 22:16:36
Nice Star Wars reference Ed.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 08:15:40
You're a star, MK! Don't let the bitters bring you down, they can go down the park and support another team that'll give them rich opportunity to vent their bitterness.

7.) 28 Feb 2018 09:46:38
You being singled out? Look at me 😆😆😆😆. There is always a hope mate 😋. I have taken more sticks than Osama Bin Laden lol 😆😆😆.

8.) 28 Feb 2018 14:39:03
You’re too fickle Baby D, that’s your problem.

One minute I was your man then 2 days later you’re all over ed025 😢.



11 Dec 2017 11:18:36
Good morning chaps.

Just like to say thanks for the selection Ed002.

I feel I have more weight on my shoulders making sure I don't let you down than I have in my current job! I promise not to let you down in defence!

Oh and I do have welsh heritage, partly because I'm welsh ;)

Come on Redmen cheer up.

Merry Christmas to all Ed's and Reds! Enjoy the holidays.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

1.) 11 Dec 2017 13:09:19
I will try not to embarrass you to much on the day smplfc :)

2.) 11 Dec 2017 14:16:20
big ups my welsh bois out there, put the welsh pirlo sorry Joe Allen to shame out there.

3.) 11 Dec 2017 17:00:05
Come on Welshmen.



06 Nov 2017 14:19:04
Hi Ed01,

I see that you're looking at the idea of opening up a new list for villains of the game.

Can I suggest El Hadji Diouf and Joey Barton?

Would they meet the criteria?



{Ed001's Note - they would be right near the top of the list mate.}

1.) 06 Nov 2017 14:56:51
I'm actually in the middle of doing an article on Craig Bellamy. But it's about how he turned from a villain to a hero with his work in Africa and the change in his attitude in later years of his career.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 15:14:48
That list goes on for a while.

To name a few.

3.) 06 Nov 2017 15:56:37
What about Johnson? Isn’t he still doing time.

4.) 06 Nov 2017 15:58:01
You could add Ben Thatcher to that list.

5.) 06 Nov 2017 16:03:36
I don't think it's fair to put Balotelli in as a villain along with the likes of Barton and Suarez, Noshbag.

6.) 06 Nov 2017 17:01:50
Which Keane? Roy or Robbie?

Is it Onfield villains Ed?

Is John Terry a villain for his off field behavior, and Ryan Giggs too?

What about Michael Owen and his bullying of the young players and then even Gerrard for similar.

{Ed001's Note - either or mate, on or off.}

7.) 06 Nov 2017 17:43:08
Ok Ed this could make really interesting reading, soap time on the Liverpool rumors site, awesome.

{Ed001's Note - might be difficult to research though!}

8.) 06 Nov 2017 22:22:25
I would not put Balotelli in the villain category, just a big childish toolbag living in an adult's body.
