We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter pages.

In order to view all of today's banter, you have to visit our liverpool banter 2 to liverpool banter 10 pages linked at the bottom of this page.

Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

With our site (no Ed002). More posts will be going up on that Liverpool FC Banter site from now on.

Hello everyone, don't post very often but read everyday.

Quick question for ed002 if your about mate, with the 2022 World Cup being held in December what are they going to do about the Club World Cup as that's also in December?

An whilst I'm here I just want to say thanks to the Ed's an all the posters for making and maintaining such a wonderful site.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is no decision at this time but it is an issue that is on the agenda to be discussed at a meeting between the "elite" clubs at the end of August. Not specifically the date issue but the proposed expansion being put forward by Infantino.}

Numerous media outlets speculating that we're done in the transfer market since Allison. People on here saying it could be a smokescreen to keep deals under the radar a la Fabinho. Your thoughts/ insight would be much appreciated as to whether you think the fekir deal, or any other for a no 10 replacement, is on it off.

haha, 'smokescreen' and 'radar' in the same sentence.
Classic footy jargon gibberish. :)

I feel sorry for you eds on this question, i think i have seen it hundreds of times over the last couple of days.

My view whisky is that if an opportunity arises that is of interest similar to the Fabinho situation we may be interested. But the concentration at the minute is shifting players as the squad is too big and I can imagine wages need trimming too.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Or if one or two of the goalkeepers leave putting Liverpool in a position of needing to recruit another one - or two?

20 Jul 2018 14:39:32
Thanks Ed!

Ed any word on mane signing a new contract mate or have discussions even started?

{Ed002's Note - No idea.}

Hi Eds, is there any news on Mane signing a new contract? Thanks.

Yes there is cheese on the moon but I can’t seem to understand why your being so nosey.

That's especially interesting when you review the different planets and moons, savvyxone. A cheesey moon with a cattoast planet and you have cheesey cattoast lunch options.

You've not lived until you've tasted a cheesey cattoast, its just purrfect!

Oh I used to like a figroll with a cup of tea.

oh dear Zed i'm feline that these cat puns are catastrophic and way over the top!

Apologies everyone for stooping to Zed's level, can some one show ME-OWt please?

I fear the cheesy cat-toast would be ruined by radiation. Although this is just my opinion and it may well be just to die for.

Welcome to our new number 10, take a bow Sadio Mane!

Agree4 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:12:55
I think this probably signifies the end of our pursuit or Fekir.

Agree1 8Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:41:37
I think fekir was being bought to add creativity to the midfield and not because the number 10 shirt was vacant.

Agree7 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:44:20
Or maybe Fekir will take Moreno's number 18.
Could be that Sadio just asked for #10 during his contract discussion. Nice to have him and Mo back home to Melwood safe and sound.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:31:12
or maybe not.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:32:22
Nabil Fekir wears 18 or Lyons and France. If he comes to Liverpool maybe he'll take that number.

Mane deserves the number 10 if that's what he wanted.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 14:00:44
Irish, and I think the no. 10 shirt is generally for players who play the CAM role hence my reference to the end of pursuit for Fekir.

Agree0 2Disagree

20 Jul 2018 14:58:21
Given we don't play a typical "#10" is it really that important.? Too much focus on fekir coming to play a position we don't really use in our system.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:43:31
Hmmm. Allison looks a bit like Doni but with more hair on his face.

I think he's referring to M. S. Dhoni the Indian wicketkeeper. ALbeit his beard is now of the silver variety!

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 11:17:34
Somebody please tell me if the Fekir deal is comepletly of the table now as reported, or is it just the same old circus?

Best regards

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:34:09
You may think I'm daft for believing this but I think we'll still get him or at the very least try. I don't think we're done just yet. I'm not fussed either way though.

Agree6 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:39:43
I agree with Salah. There is a rumour that Chelsea may be interested now (don't know how reliable that is), but I don't think we've heard the end of Fekir yet. It may be January, but I think Salah's right.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:40:05
I am still hopeful that we'll get him. I think we just need to sell a few players first.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:41:25
Our journos have been all over the place this summer, clearly being used as pawns. Klopp doesn't always tell the truth too, so I'm optimistic we'll still get him.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:43:43
To me it looks like we're playing dead, but will still bring one "10" in, however first the squad needs the trim - Origi, Ings, Studge, Markovic, obviously there was this Gini rumour, etc.

I would really like us to get Fekir and get 2 of Origi/ Ings/ Sturridge out, obviously we can't keep hoping how one is going to stop getting injuries or others turn world class, because they will not. And there certainly is space for Fekir, as Salah/ Mane positions aren't really covered by anything even remotely close to their quality, especially with Ox injured.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:48:56
I personally hope we stay clear.
If there's anymore business to be done (pending the forwards outgoings), I'd go for a flying machine winger / front 3 player.
Shaqiri / Keita can do the Coutinho role until another time.

Agree0 2Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:57:36
Mt gut feel is also that we will get him, towards the end of the window, and depending on what we raise from sales.

Agree3 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:17:03
Yeah I agree Zed, I think that's what it'll come down to, who we offload first and how much we can get.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 14:07:16
I wouldn't be surprised if fekir was pissed off with us as we don't trust his fitness if that was the case with the medical issues an it was us who pulled the plug . If it was the owner being awkward with us an he was moving the goalposts when we were negotiating fekir should be pissed off at him and want too join us even more but the million dollar question is do we still want him an will we show the desire too get him in, I still think he is needed though and would love him if we get any injuries too front 3 we still going to feel it .

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - This was all explained at the time. Stop trying to blame others.}

20 Jul 2018 14:33:32
I am not blaming anyone ed I am just thinking what the players thoughts might be about the whole thing as he Must be gutted as he wanted too join us . I still would love him too play for us just day by day I think it's not happening . If he goes somewhere else you can't blame him but still i would be gutted .

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:09:10
Hi Eds, now that maybe the transfer side has come to a close (At least slowing down) . Was wondering if you had seen much of Fabinho prior to his joining? I haven't seen much and was curious how you rated him as a player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Fabinho had been at Monaco mainly as a RB and moved to DM - but it was his goalscoring from defensive positions that attracted many clubs to look at him and enquire after him. The concerns that put some off were all based around whether he would be able to adapt to a more competitive league. But there is no doubt a lot of clubs like him.}

20 Jul 2018 12:55:31
Thanks Ed, I'll keep a keen eye on him in preseason!
On the upside enjoyed watching Keita so far in preseason.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:04:24
REading good reports on Curtis Jones. Anyone with a bit more info on this lad? Best position, first team time this season?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:24:10
Bench, cup games and last 10 minutes for me. Only 17, plays older.

Great feet. Hard working and excellent in possession. Doesn't really make any errors and also works really hard.

Attacking mid best position although klopp has had him in sort of a free role these games.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Jul 2018 12:46:07
sounds tidy. Couldn’t be a reason Fekir is shelved? Not putting 17yr old under pressure but if he’s good enough etc.

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Jul 2018 13:51:34
hahaha. Curtis Jones being quite good has absolutely nothing to do with Fekir.
