Ed, is there any truth that Coutinho is looking for a move to Manchester United or is this just lazy journalism?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what he wants, sorry. But certainly he is one of the players Barcelona want sold this summer.}

1.) 10 Mar 2019 17:52:33
Thank you ed.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 19:13:36
Ed, if you ever have any openings in your rodeo, I'd like to apply.

{Ed002's Note - I'll take note of that.}

3.) 10 Mar 2019 19:29:23
Ed002 why would they be so quick to get rid when they went to the trouble to attain him. Is it financial or another reason.

{Ed002's Note - He is not playing as well as they want and they are willing to cut him lose and take a hit on the funds bringing a replacement in.}

4.) 10 Mar 2019 21:06:18
certainly Liverpool wouldn't be interested, would they?

5.) 10 Mar 2019 23:49:33
No chance Stone mate, not at the price Barcelona would be after.

6.) 10 Mar 2019 23:48:54
Would we want him back after way he left?

7.) 11 Mar 2019 01:23:05
Coutinho can play LW AM RW CM he can rotate with the front three and in the middle. I understand he faked injuries because he wanted his DREAM move but he was doing great with us. apart from that he has friends here in Firmino Moreno and now we have Alisson Fabinho he will feel at home here and he will give us his best years.
Just imagine
Alisson-A. Arnold-Gomez-VanDijk-Robertson-Fabinho-Keita-Coutinho-Salah-Mane-Firmino.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 10:25:47
I think we have moved on as a club and are better off without him. Don't think he works hard enough off the ball and he is a high light player that looks better than he is because of the goals he scores but how many shots does he have but fore one goes in would much prefer are front 3 over him and in the middle ox all day for me. I know he has more ability on the ball than ox but look how hard david silva kevin de bruyne and bernardo silva. Think its time to move on.

9.) 11 Mar 2019 11:24:53
Asensio is apparently available in the summer for £69m apparently, I would much rather we buy him. Amazing player with serious potential, probably cheaper than Countinho (not that I would want to see him back) don't get me wrong, Coutinho was an amazing player for us, but he cooked his goose with the fans over how he acted trying to leave - well he did for me anyway!

{Ed001's Note - is Asensio really amazing?}

10.) 11 Mar 2019 13:17:53
I loved Couts during his time at Liverpool. However, I wouldn't be happy if we were to take him back. I just think for the price we could do better in terms of signing a player that would fit Klopps system. For me, id go all out to sign Son from Spurs. I don't think they'd sell unfortunately. And Levy isn't exactly a dream to deal with either.

11.) 11 Mar 2019 14:17:01
Are you seriously saying you would prefer Son to Coutinho.

We will not be getting him back, but coutinho is a wonderful player. creative and game changing, just what we need in games such as west ham and Leicester.

12.) 11 Mar 2019 15:03:19
We drastically improved when Coutinho left last season. We are currently having one of our best seasons ever. We do not miss him. When we play against deep defences Coutinho is not the answer, we had the same struggles vs this kind of strategy the entire time Coutinho was with us.

13.) 11 Mar 2019 17:04:33
When did we drastically improve after Coutinho left? 1st Jan 2018 we were 3rd in the prem at the end of the season we were 4th. We started to concede less goals due to VVD coming but we didn't score more league goals.

Of course we miss him to some extent. Did you not watch the Man U or the Everton games, this is when he could have made the difference.

14.) 11 Mar 2019 18:39:40
I don't think either will ever happen but, if push came to shove, I would definitely have Son over Coutinho. Coutinho is excellent don't get me wrong, but Son's all round game is superb and he is an absolute grafter. He'd suit out style perfectly as well.

15.) 11 Mar 2019 19:27:02
Coutinho was in and out of games and went missing a lot. Then he would bang a worldie in and all would be forgotten. He really should get more time and space in the Spanish league to do his stuff. So if he's struggling is really a player we would want back for £100 mill plus. No thanks move on don't go back.

16.) 11 Mar 2019 21:36:01
The fee alone make him unobtainable before you consider the other factors, such as how he left, how well we played without him, the cost, his overall salary etc etc.

We should move on, he’s not worth the £100 million being mentioned for me. For that we could sign both Fekir and Brandt with change to spare.

17.) 12 Mar 2019 05:51:11
For the crazy amount of money for buying Countinho, I predict he will just end up staying at Barcelona for maybe 2 more seasons. Luckily he would have some game time but definitely the the star player of them. And finally he would end up like Cesc Fabregas, leaving there cheap to Italy maybe?

What do you think about my prediction Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him sold and will drop the price if they need to - selling him obviously saves them money on payments to Liverpool.}

18.) 12 Mar 2019 22:42:44
So we get kicked twice then? Losing him to Barcelona and now losing what I would imagine would be a significant chunk of his transfer fee because they want to sell him. I know we don’t like to talk money but that’s kind of kicking us twice - why would anyone want him back (unless it’s so we can sell him again and get paid something?! )

19.) 14 Mar 2019 03:29:34
Maybe we can do something to negotiate a good deal involving the payments left.

20.) 16 Mar 2019 21:07:02
That’s confusing, why would it save them money on payments to us? Surely any money owed has to be honoured regardless of whether he is there or not? Or are we talking about add ons for appearances, etc?

{Ed002's Note - We are talking about a large sum of money that would be due if he stayed, played and Barcelona were successful. I have explained the structure of the fee before. Sadly many of the fans don’t believe it.}



02 Nov 2018 18:19:38
Ed002, is there any potential impact to the recent allegations against PSG and Man City. I know not Liverpool related, don't beat me up to much.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what allegations have been made but if it relates back to the 12/13 era it would be perhaps a case of UEFA finding their new turbo-charged feet in terms of handing out penalties. I have seen several posts about the general theme, if it is no more than bitching about it really being much worse than it was, that may well be truce. They got abrupt punishment that perhaps could have been more serious, but someone will need to give me a pointer to the specifics for me to rationally comment.}}

1.) 02 Nov 2018 23:27:17
I read Psg should sell mbappe and neymar because the money used for them wasn’t financially fair?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am not sure what is meant by that.}

2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:13
I believe the allegations were that Infantino met with the Qatari’s and said if they buy PSG he will overlook FFP in their favour and ensure that they got to host the 2022 World Cup. There was something similar to do with Man City but I’m not sure of the full details of that.

{Ed002's Note - That sounds like nonsense from Twitter. Regardless, that is all totally untrue.}

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:32:32
Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks Ed002. It was football leaks that broke the story and I have no idea how reliable they are.

{Ed002's Note - They have seemingly got some information that dates between 2014 and recently which is why it is muddled.



11 Jun 2018 23:26:31
Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}

8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.

9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?

10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}

13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.

14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}

16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}

17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}

18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

02 Jun 2019 20:15:23
Ed01, I hate to ask but are you going to do a match review? I'd recommend all 10's if you do and maybe an 11 for Alisson. He and VVD have truly made a HUGE difference. I can't help but wonder how many of the few opportunities Spurs got would have gone in against almost any other keeper. Also, there was a tackle by VVD against Son that isn't getting as much attention as I think it should. it was very subtle as he made it look easier than it really was. Just wondering what your thoughts were on those points.

{Ed001's Note - I am going to do it tomorrow, but I won't do the usual one with ratings. Just an overview of the match. I don't want to get into individual performances as they had not played for 3 weeks and it was far too hot. It was like the first game of pre-season, players were just not right and it was a huge mistake to schedule the end of the Prem season so much earlier than everyone else's seasons. Typical of the morons running the Prem to continually mess about and leave things in a mess. They need to schedule things in line with everyone else, including the transfer window.}

1.) 02 Jun 2019 20:24:19
They all should get 6. Oh wait they did.

2.) 02 Jun 2019 20:28:44
I agree. there is much too much criticism of the match in my opinion. No one was taking into consideration the temperature. As hot as it was, it was even moreso on the pitch. I understand why the match was a little slower not only the heat but the 3 weeks off. Can you tell me what you thought of Alisson please? I don't think I'm overstating how huge he was in that match am I? I'm sure the goal looked much smaller to Spurs because of Alisson. It was almost like they knew their shots had no chance.

{Ed001's Note - he was outstanding. His positioning is top class. It is not just that though, he is commanding and has some excellent kicking to aid him.}

3.) 02 Jun 2019 20:53:57
You're a riot, WYred.

4.) 02 Jun 2019 20:56:45
Ed1, I have the opinion of, Alisson is the best keeper in the world right now, would you agree or? if not who do you think is? just interested to hear your opinion mate, I know you rate him highly but do you rate him as the best?

{Ed001's Note - I was just saying to Ed0333 that he is the best I have seen overall. Right now he is the best in the world, DDG has had such a bad couple of seasons he can not be considered as the best currently.}

5.) 02 Jun 2019 21:04:02
Completely agree, if he carries on performing like that, he'll be a legend. Well, he already is in my eyes. Cheers mate.

6.) 02 Jun 2019 21:19:41
yeah, I agree as well. I'm trying really hard not to look at this through red tinted glasses, as I'm sure Ed025 would accuse me of, but I can't help but think that 1 or 2 of the opportunities that Spurs had would have been goals agains almost anyone else including Ederson, Llloris and De Geil. He makes some difficult saves look pedestrian because of his outstanding positioning. I think that is why people like Ed025 don't give him the credit that he deserves. What they are missing is that a lot of times when outstanding saves are required, it is because of poor positioning.

{Ed025's Note - i am actually a big fan of alisson stone and i dont know when i have not given him credit mate, him and VVD are the reason liverpool have gone from also rans to premiership contenders..

7.) 02 Jun 2019 21:34:35
Ederson is as good as Alisson two very good keepers.

{Ed025's Note - its very close ace, ederson is brilliant with his feet but i feel alisson just shades it with his agility mate..

8.) 02 Jun 2019 21:46:59
Genuinely redwolf can't tell if that's sarcasm or not 🤣.

9.) 03 Jun 2019 00:52:56
The thing is, he made a couple of errors this season and we never once gave him criticism. That is the perfect testament to his quality, we have pure trust in him. All his saves yesterday looked routine, you'd be angry if he didn't save them. But what he always did was get the ball away from danger, that's a hugely underrated ability for keepers. He always gets a strong hand and pushes the ball wide, he dealt with every catch and every punch with ease. It's funny to compare the outcome of 12 months ago to now, we lost a scrappy game due to a nightmare keeper performance. This year we had a keeper who could keep a clean sheet and win. His fee is already justified in my eyes.

Napoli, Barcelona, spurs. 3 absolute season defining games this season, he not only kept a clean sheet in every one of those games but he directly influenced the outcome of each. Last minute block napoli, 5 or 6 quality saves needed in the semi. If Barcelona scored at any point the tie was probably lost. And the final he was flawless. For a goalkeeper to have that much say and influence in crucial moments to win a champions league is amazing. Huge love for him. I never make opinions on worlds best because i always think to judge a keeper properly you need to watch him every game., I don't get to see GK around Europe often enough to compare but I wouldn't swap him for anyone for sure. How's oblak performed of late does anyone know?

10.) 02 Jun 2019 21:52:59
Ed001, just to check, Alisson is the best keeper you have seen in the context of our players only or overall I. e the schmeichels and the kahns? I still cannot believe he’s playing for us mate. He’s just unreal for the whole season, and with scope to improve as well!

{Ed001's Note - Schmeichel and Kahn couldn't kick a ball. As an overall keeper, because the game has moved on so much, he is the best.}

11.) 02 Jun 2019 22:16:52
vvd did really really good.

Just would like to ask for opinion from ed001
did vdv made a mistake by rashing out and try to make a tackle which didn't work out, leaving son running with ball facing the net and we were so lucky that the ball was cleared by our wonder boy Arnold accidentally?

{Ed001's Note - it wasn't accidental, watch and see how he hangs a leg out just at the right time to block the ball.}

12.) 02 Jun 2019 22:47:39
ed001 Alisson reminds me of David Seaman in his prime at arsenal makes every thing look so easy because he all ways seems to be in the right position. So he never seems to have to make the glory looking saves Because of it. Ederson is great with his feet and so fast coming off his line but I do think Alisson positioning is by far better. Am sure his save percentage was better and it was his first season what says even more for him.

{Ed001's Note - Seaman was average, it was made to look easy because it was playing behind that Arsenal team that never conceded chances, not because he was good.}

13.) 02 Jun 2019 21:30:24
Ed, you got on to some of us for suggesting that Alisson was better than Ederson. You were probably just trying to keep us in check. I get it. Nothing but respect for you.

{Ed025's Note - cheers mate

14.) 02 Jun 2019 21:59:26
You truly are a star Eds 025, as unbiased as anyone I've met.

Did you venture into town today, looked a great day to be a Liverpodlian.

{Ed025's Note - no mate i was recovering for most of the day, but the scenes were fantastic..

15.) 02 Jun 2019 22:04:18
Yep can't disagree with that Eds25. Have a good week.

{Ed025's Note - you too ace..

16.) 03 Jun 2019 11:24:49
I saw us knock what? 5 past him last season. Then in the world cup he didn't look amazing.

But i believed when everyone was saying how good he is. And now, i wouldn't swap him for any keeper in the world. Does that make him world class?

I guess it does.

17.) 03 Jun 2019 10:46:57
Ed025 me old mucker, without sounding bitter I seem to remember you said Pickford and Allison were very similar ability wise early in the season, I take it your views have since shifted over to the red side a tiny smidgen🤔.

{Ed025's Note - just a little bit virgil, i think alisson is better in the air, better on the floor, is more agile, commands his area better, marshalls his defence better, is better on crosses and quicker off his line, but besides that there is nothing much between them mate.. :)



02 Jun 2019 19:05:22
As happy as we all are, can you imagine how Dave Evans and Sean Cox feel right now? I'm thrilled for both of them. YNWA.

1.) 02 Jun 2019 19:36:17
Nice touch, Stone. They must be elated to bits about what this team did last night and have been doing all season. As Klopp always says, "There are many more important things in life than football". My heart goes out to them and their families. YNWA!

2.) 02 Jun 2019 19:48:05
Thank you RedWolf. I know there are hundreds if not thousands just like Dave and Sean.

3.) 02 Jun 2019 19:55:46
For those that don't know, Sean Cox got to watch the game at home with his family. Keep the recovery going Sean.

4.) 02 Jun 2019 20:11:48
that's fantastic polecat. i hope he gets to anfield next season.

5.) 02 Jun 2019 21:06:52
Well said stone mate.

6.) 02 Jun 2019 21:08:05
Brilliant news, Polecat. Livestrong, Dave and Sean! Livestrong!



02 Jun 2019 00:38:04
can't wait to read Ed's match review. I thought Klopp got his substitutions spot on. Alisson for player of the match for me. YNWA!

1.) 02 Jun 2019 01:38:43
I second that Alisson was fantabolous and makes it look so easy.

{Ed0333's Note - Klopp making two subs early in the second half I thought I was dreaming. I had to pinch myself.



01 Jun 2019 18:51:43
Wonder if the inclusion of Kelleher is a hint of who the #2 keeper will be next year?

1.) 01 Jun 2019 19:04:48
Nah. It's just in case there was a training injury. Three keepers need to be included.

It's just like how national teams take 3 keepers to international tournaments.

2.) 01 Jun 2019 19:29:54
We're allowed 23 players, be daft not to have the extra cover just in case.



26 May 2019 23:16:35
Ed002, I'm a big fan of yours. I like all of the Eds, but the information and insight that you provide is beyond outstanding. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Post of the day. The hamper is on its way.}

1.) 27 May 2019 11:01:41
Ed002 - also a fan here! 😁
In all seriousness, just thank for all that you do.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet but the hamper has gone.}

ed002 how voluptuous you look today, have you been working out?

3.) 27 May 2019 11:27:41
Ed002 you are the best. I know the hamper has gone but is there any chance of a signed piccy?

4.) 27 May 2019 17:34:12
Ed002 is Yoda.

{Ed001's Note - well there is a plot twist I never saw coming. Ed002 is Ed007's dog?!?}

5.) 27 May 2019 17:47:22
Is he house trained?

{Ed001's Note - Ed007? No, not at all.}

Ed001, do you remember the absolute mailings that Pp had to endure? Neymar, Pogba, Suarez, Messi and the like have absolutely no idea what abuse is.

{Ed001's Note - Pele you mean? I can remember well - particularly as I have had to listen to the story of him having to be taken off at Goodison Park for his own safety during the 66 World Cup, because it was my uncle who was the sobbing St John's lad who put the blanket round his shoulders and the pair of them went off in tears together.}
