I really hope that the press reports about our interest in Javier Hernandez are true. I remember reports of our interest in him being quashed before because of the number of clubs he'd already been at that season. What do you reckon Eds?

Believable0 Unbelievable4

{Ed001's Note - never read any of the press reports, but they seem highly unlikely, never heard of any interest from us in him.}

10 Dec 2016 06:00:35
I definitely think it has legs. Bcos Klopp for obvious reason is monitoring the Bundesliga very very closely.

Agree1 Disagree9

10 Dec 2016 08:49:34
Thanks Eds. Fingers crossed though. He seems to do well whenever he's given game time, doesn't have an affinity for odd smoking devices in dark corners or come to life in the wee small hours in clubs. He scores goals instead and works hard at it.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Spurs are still the most likely team for him, if he ever returned to the Prem. They are the ones that have shown interest and tracked him for years. They are also the ones that need a striker.}

10 Dec 2016 09:14:30
Each to their own but personally I don't want him, I don't think he could bring much to us, I think he'd be a flop at Liverpool and half of this rumour is probably just click bait.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Dec 2016 11:35:33
Liverpool wouldn't be buying any striker unless Sturridge is sold.

Agree1 Disagree3

10 Dec 2016 14:14:47
Is Sardar Azmoun still our main target striker wise? Don't imagine we will buy one in Jan but perhaps summer?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Azmoun remains of interest to Liverpool.}

09 Dec 2016 23:11:50
It looks like Matip has decided not to go to AFCON, great news!

Yes it's a huge boost for us, I was bricking it a bit yesterday I must admit.

Liverpool scouting Atalanta teenager Frank Kessie.

Hi Eds.
The Real Madrid v Dortmund was on Irish Tv tonight and one of the commentators mentioned that the word around Dortmund is that a player called Sokratiz may be coming to Anfield in January.

Have you heard this from any of your sources?
Tks for the great sites.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed002's Note - No. Dortmund are more than happy to move Subotic on and only a failed medical blocked a move to Middlsbrough in the summer - they are still interested.}

08 Dec 2016 11:18:48

Did you mean Subotic or Sokratis Papadopoulos? I know which I'd prefer!

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 19:02:57
Hi Graemem.
The second one.

On his shirt it says Sokratis. Probably couldn't fit the surname on the shirt

The commentator sounded fairly definite about it.
Saying that the word out of Dortmund is that Klopp wants Sokratis at Anfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2016 14:27:05
Is that the same player we were looking into 3-ish years ago who was having injury issues?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Yes Colin.}

09 Dec 2016 15:32:41
Colin I think the lad you are referring to was kyriakos papa.
Ed's is it true about LFC bidding for
Franck Kessié as reported in Italy?
If not are the club interested in him?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Atalanta say there have been no offers but they have been approached by two clubs and are aware of the interest of others. Liverpool are not one of the two clubs.}

10 Dec 2016 03:21:16
If true that Sokratz had a decent game till he got a kicking in the second half.

There has been NO word of it on the inter net since then .
So ther may be some truth in it.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2016 17:58:36
Hi eds. Just a quick one, have Liverpool show any interest in juan quintero? and if you have time, what do you make of the lads abilities? Good enough for liverpool and the premier league? Thanks.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of, and I have not seen enough of the lad to judge him to be perfectly honest.}

06 Dec 2016 08:31:21
eds is quincy promes a realistic target for January?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

{Ed002's Note - This would be to replace Mance for three matches or so? Then what?

Quincy Promes has been watched over the past 18 months or so by Inters, Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle, Liverpool, Dortmund, Al Ain and Southampton. Interest of Bayern Munich and Juventus (both of whom saw him as squad padding) was ended when quoted €32M by Spartak before Christmas 2015 but they became aware of a third party that might have a claim on the player and might need to be paid off. This has pushed the asking price to an unrealistic €45M - enought to make Spurs drop any thoughts about trying to negotiate a deal. A new contract has recently been signed but Spartak would be keen to sell in January.}

06 Dec 2016 16:09:49
By spartak buying ALEXANDR SAMEDOV does that move the QUINCY PROMES transfer on or am I barking up the wrong tree.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Read the post.}

Holy Mackeral!

06 Dec 2016 17:00:00
Hello Ed,
A few rumours floating around of our interest in Virgil Van Djik and his rumoured 25M£ release clause. Is the price tag true?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I don't know about the release clause but there will be enough interest in him from clubs that the price will likely run higher.}

06 Dec 2016 17:41:48
ed002 thanks for the reply, this site is the reason I don't buy newspapers. Safe travels, thanks for your time.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet - do you have an aunt still alive?}

06 Dec 2016 23:57:58
Azmoun or Quincy, which one is better?

Agree0 Disagree2

06 Dec 2016 22:47:58
I've been reading this site since it was just football-rumours. My first ever post is purely because that is my favourite ever ed002 response of the last eight years!

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 16:49:58
LEEKUANYEW, PROMES is a better more end product and assists, an all-round better player, AZMOUN would probably struggle to get game time with us.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2016 13:41:10
Never watched Quincy play tbh with ya, but I can tell you if his Fut 17 card is anything to go by he's one hell of a player;)

Morning Redmen,

Well that was an eventful weekend!
As disappointing as it is, let's try not to go OTT, we are 3rd in the league, went unbeaten in 15. And deserved to win the game! I always say I would rather lose a game we deserve to win then to just get battered. The players will be frustrated and hopefully Klopp will make them learn from this and be stronger for it.

Anyways, enough of my rambling, heres the weekend loan update

Awoniyi appears to of lost his place in the NEC starting 11 as for the 3rd week in a row he starts on the bench.
Awoniyi was introduced to the game in the 80th min with his team losing 1-0 to Hercules. His appearance did not have the desired effect as it became 2-0 just 1 minute later.

Flannaghan made his 2nd start in a row for Burnley but Opta stats say his showing wasn't to impressive.
Burnley lost 2-0 to Stoke as their woeful away form continues.

Hertha Berlin won a thriller away to Wolfsburg winning 3-2 thanks to a 90th Minute Pen.
Allan entered the game in the 80th min when the game was 2-2.

Hudderfields freefall down the Championship table continues following a 1-1 draw with Blackburn. Danny Ward played the full 90.

Ryan Fulton had a bad bad day at the office as Chesterfield lost 5-0 to Wycombe Wanderers.

Wisdom came into the starting 11 last week, they lost, and so this week he finds himself back on the bench.
He watched on from his favourite spot as Salzburg won 4-1.

Sporting Lisbon Moved into second following a 2-0 win over Vitoria.
Markovic got himself a nice 3minute run out at the end

And there's your lot redmen :)

Wat a way to describe Wisdom, that's harsh.

Thanks for the update.
Any news on Jack Dunn at Morecambe?

I had high hopes for him I hope he can prove me right.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 12:58:08
Hi Dermot,

Jack Dunns loan deal at Morecombe has ended. He is back at Anfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 19:12:39
Tks for that.
I was unaware the loan had finished.
It seems to be crunch time for the lad now.
He scored one of the finest goals I've ever seen a few years back and thought what a prospect.
But a series of injuries have derailed his development.
Best of luck to him though.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2016 07:27:55
Hi Eds?

My first post on here.

2 questions,

-Have we looked at Jan Oblak any time?, world class goalie and Atletico do sell when the price is right.
He's miles better than what we currently have.
-What are the positions will we be looking to improve in the January?


Believable2 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - we did before he moved to Atletico. They do sell, but only for a high price as their business model is based on that.
January? It was looking unlikely that anything would be done this January, but we are always on the look out for players that strengthen the team. Wide forwards and centre backs were always seen as the main priorities for signing, I doubt anything has changed that in recent days.}

06 Dec 2016 08:09:17
Hello Ed,
Reckon Matip and Sturridge would be fit for the weekend against west ham?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - should be, so keep your fingers crossed.}

06 Dec 2016 10:13:40
We need Matip back with them have Carroll back . He would bully are defence and we need to stop giving stupid free kicks away.

Agree4 Disagree0

05 Dec 2016 21:35:59
Matip recovered for West Ham this weekend?

Hope so.

Believable7 Unbelievable0

04 Dec 2016 20:00:07
Both our keepers are clearly not currently good enough.
Once Leicester's flirtation with the CL is over is there even a slim chance we can persuade Schmeichel to come in as no 1.

Believable1 Unbelievable13

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in him and Klopp has already secured the goalkeeper he wants. The club needs to make a decision about Danny Ward given I would expect Mignolet to move on in the summer. I said before Begovic was an obvious choice and available.}

04 Dec 2016 22:03:30
Just a suggestion if any of the EDDS are around, could the problem be JOHN ACHTERBERG, we get a new manager who buys a new keeper who is as bad as the previous keeper, it doesn't add up. just a suggestion.

Agree4 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - I have said for a while he is not a good coach for us. Nice guy, really nice guy, but he is still learning his way as a coach and we should have the best.}

04 Dec 2016 22:55:19
Which one of the first 3 goals could Karius have realistically saved?

Agree8 Disagree13

05 Dec 2016 00:08:09
I think he could've done better preventing the 3rd and 4th Ron . I don't like picking on players, but puzzled why we replaced Mingo by this keeper.

Agree11 Disagree12

04 Dec 2016 23:48:14
Ed002 would begovic have joined us having once turned us down before? Also I question his ambition going to chelsea knowing he would be 2nd choice. Be nice to know your opinion.

Cheers Baz.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Yes, of course.}

05 Dec 2016 00:37:30
The 3rd goal? It was a cross into a crowded penalty area, our defenders let their centre back control it and he smashed it into the corner on the turn. Karius had no chance!
What about the defence stopping the cross or even being in the right position to defend the cross. Ridiculous to blame Karius for the 3rd goal.

Agree17 Disagree4

05 Dec 2016 02:33:44
De Gea made an almost identical mistake last week, and yet he hasn't suddenly become crap. Players are human and will make mistakes. Its just its more obvious when a GK makes one. The issue is how does he respond. Migs' biggest mistake is that he dwells on the errors and it appears to affect his judgement as a result. Karius needs to show he will learn from his mistakes but shrug them off too. Give him time and see how he goes. It took De Gea almost 2 years to show people what he has got (ManU fans were spewing about him for most of that time) and yet I reckon most here would jump at the chance to sign him.

Agree10 Disagree2

05 Dec 2016 06:16:03
@Ron - the 2nd goal was poor from Karius - went under his body when he should really of been saving it. 4th was just a routine save that he made a complete hash of. He was directly at fault for those 2 goals - 2 goals a better keeper would probably not have conceded. It is still early days and he is a young keeper - we can only hope he improves. How likely that is with Achterberg as coach is open to debate.

Agree8 Disagree4

05 Dec 2016 11:55:45
A very good friend of mine has told me Bercovic was offered a first class route to Liverpool but the man himself insited London is the life for him n his lifestyle is that of an unpaid or should that be unplayed superstar.
He even scoffs at the idea of him not plying his trade but still appearing on Match Of The Day Extra.
Not the greatest individual to have at your club.

Agree6 Disagree3

05 Dec 2016 12:20:54
Did someone seriously suggest Kasper Schmeichel?
1) he's not better than either Mignolet or Karius.

2) Do you not think the constant brain farting from our defenders and midfielders when under pressure and consecutive mistakes are more to blame?

Agree7 Disagree4

05 Dec 2016 15:18:30
The Leicester keeper is much better than both of our keepers put together.

Agree4 Disagree15

05 Dec 2016 16:45:38
Did anyone notice Fraiser Fosters error on the weekend. It happens to all goalkeepers. Just give karius a chance. Its his first season and he will only get better with time.

Agree12 Disagree2

05 Dec 2016 16:56:31
Forster is a terrible goalkeeper who frequently makes mistakes - not the sort of GK you'd want to be compared to.

Agree0 Disagree7

{Ed025's Note - i think forster is a good keeper seano...i can think of worse.. :)

05 Dec 2016 23:44:03
I think your all to quick to blame Karius! Yes he made a complete hash of the 4 th goal, but the rest I wouldn't of expected him to save. The second was low and I'm the corner I don't think your apreciating how hard it is to get down that quick, the third, matey on there team had time to control it and get a shot away! Poor defending in my opinion. I think our problem with conceding is our defensive structure! It's all well and good pressing high up the pitch but once they have possession in our half we should adapt a more organised defensive structure. If you watch the other top teams when defending even against the small teams they are well organised and drilled.

Agree1 Disagree3

06 Dec 2016 01:41:07
Ron, gk are only good when they pull off saves that are unrealistic to save, if not they ate just plain avetage. Peter Schmichael, DDG been doing that and save their team min 6-10 pts a season and all title holders have these kinda keepers.

Agree2 Disagree2

06 Dec 2016 10:26:30
Karius is more style than substance at the moment. Like a lot of modern day footballers, would rather look the part than be the part. That's why you find a million youngsters who can ping 40 yard balls, pull off fancy tricks and walk around with headphones, but they don't have the intangibles:- desire, heart, courage, determination, fight, and team ethics. As long as they look good, they're halfway there. When your goalkeeper is a model, you can sure as heck guarantee when the going gets tough, he'll be looking for the hair wax to make sure the camera get's his good side. Give me Ogrizovic any day of the week. In fact, I'd probably say Massimo Taibi was a better player.

Agree1 Disagree2

07 Dec 2016 19:14:41
Pretty sure he does not go out there to perform badly, he had an off day it happens to us all. Like i have said we need a better coach than john and we may stand a chance of improving our keepers. Anybody can work 16 hr days but if they do not have the expertise it matters for nought.

Karius comes across as lacking in confidence rather than talent and john has everything to do with that. Also i suspect the prep in terms of scouting opponents just is not being done and that again lies at the door of john. Maybe they should send him to shadow a high performing a couple of days a week to see how it should be done, just a thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2016 23:18:00
Apparently Peter Schmeichel offered to pay his own fare and digs to get a trial with Liverpool when Souness was manager. Souness said no.

I also heard that Cantona was offered to us but Souness thought he was too much trouble.

Has anyone else heard this?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 07:24:14
Cantona had a trial with Sheff Wed but Howard Willinson thought he was too disruptive.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 13:09:07
Hi Ron.
Did Cantona not play for Wilkinson at Leeds utd?

Apparently Fergie rang Leeds enquiring about Nigel martyn and Wilkinson turned him down but Fergie said for the crack what about Cantona and Wilkinson let hum go For 1 Million I think.
Bargain of the decade I'd say.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 19:36:06
You're right mate, might have been Trevor Francis who was Wednesday manager. Anyway, I know he had a trial at Wednesday and was deemed too disruptive.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2016 22:32:36
I've always thought Cantona was over rated. Maybe it's just me. Wasn't he voted best ever player at utd? I wouldn't have him in their top ten.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2016 14:41:13
Cantona was signed for a bargain around the same time as Beckham, Scholes, the nevilles, Butt, and provided leadership to these young lads.
Add in Keane, Irwin, Giggs and Schmeichel etc.
And you have at current transfer values
A team worth maybe 500,000,000 assembled at a small ffraction of the value.
The rest as they say is history.
