Hi Eds do you know if we still hold any interest in Ante coric? With couts looking like he will play in a more central midfield role coric would fit that left side? It may be someone would have to leave for this to happen though plus the fact as I understand klopp has been impressed with Grujic and desire to get back to full fitness so we would have more than enough midfielders.


{Ed002's Note - Ante Coric of Dinamo Zagreb is destined for an excellent career if he doesn't move too early as he still has much growing up to do - but Newcastle, Chelsea, Benfica, Porto, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Porto, Benfica, Spurs and Manchester City are very keen - so pretty much everyone and his dog. His club are aware of this interest and the tentative interest of other sides, such as Everton, Udinese, Crystal Palace and West Ham over the past two years. He has some difficulties ;ast year but they were eased by Ivaylo Petev arriving. Following an enquiry from Newcastle in January the club offered and he signed a new contract.}

1.) 21 May 2017 12:10:45
Thanks Ed2.

2.) 21 May 2017 19:49:46
Ed what do you think of him as a player? I recently read a report saying that he doesn't pull his weight and work hard but likes to depend on his talent. It also mentioned that the club would like rid at a price quoted lesser than the previous year.
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - A lot is expected of him but he has not had the best of relationships with a previous manager and two players.}



30 Apr 2017 09:07:41
Spurs and Liverpool supposed to be looking at Harry McGuire of Hull. At only 24 years old could be a good shout.


1.) 30 Apr 2017 09:16:09
I like Maguire, similar standard to the lad at Burnley but without the massive pricetag, yet.

2.) 30 Apr 2017 09:52:26
Maguire is the one for me. I posted about him a few weeks ago and all the evidence was highlighted on MOTD last night.

His reading of the game and his ability to be in the right place are exceptional - just what we need.

{Ed001's Note - MOTD? Says it all, their analysis is lacking in any substance without Hansen. He was under no pressure at all yesterday, Palace were dreadful, he did the same thing he does every week, charge out with the ball, except Palace just stood and watched so he could take his time and pick a pass. Usually he is pressured and gives the ball away. He is not top class at all. I would rather go for genuine left sided centre backs in Mee or Gibson personally. Neither are MOTD highlight reel players, but both are better defenders.}

3.) 30 Apr 2017 10:17:57
I understand what you mean Eds1 but at only 24 he has time on his side. Funnily enough I was in Greece about 5 years ago and this chap said to look out for young up and coming defender his name was Ben mee.

{Ed001's Note - he is just not quite good enough, nor does he have the potential to go much further, imo. He is great for Hull, but he lacks the pace to work in a high line, where he would be exposed and be shown up as the average defender he actually is.}

4.) 30 Apr 2017 11:45:10
I'd say he was better than Keane because he actually looks like he can play football and defend.

5.) 30 Apr 2017 12:27:04
Hi ed 001Hull were playing Southampton not Palace yesterday

Agree Maguire is not top class but I think it shows that with good coaching ( silva) you can make defenders better. still hope for Loren to be decent as part of a revamped back line at LFC.

{Ed001's Note - shows how poor they were that I never remembered that when I sat and watched it! Apologies though you are correct, it was Saints that were dreadful. No idea why I said Palace.}

6.) 30 Apr 2017 15:15:30
Maguire is too slow and not good enough for LFC. I doubt whether Keane is either but then he idea of spending 50 mil on VVD worries me.

We should shop in Italy for def, Romagnoli or Rugani prob out of reach but the Italians do know how to def!

7.) 30 Apr 2017 15:17:25
If Spurs are looking to sign him, odds are Wimmer will be off. So I'd go after him!

8.) 30 Apr 2017 18:25:54
Wimmer is a terrible defender, there's a reason Spurs would be happy to get shot of him, he's physical weak, poor in the air and has no positional sense.

9.) 30 Apr 2017 20:35:33
Haven't MotD previously had a moan about Maguire drifting up the pitch and losing the ball too much?

10.) 01 May 2017 11:10:23
Maguire? Really? Clearly, people don't watch games fully anymore and allow the "pundits" to watch them and just parrot their conclusions by picking and choosing where to say he was good and leave out his dreadful mistakes. I couldn't believe it myself.

Maguire is bang awful. Slow as a slug, can't turn, no pace nor positional sense, would be all at sea in a high defensive line system like the one we play. Sheesh! The only English defender I would take is Gibson as he is top class.

11.) 01 May 2017 14:51:29
I think Wimmer is class. No shame in being behind Alderweireld and Vertonghen in the pecking order!

He is certainly not weak or poor in the air. Good on the ball as well. My only concern would be his pace (or lack of it) .



30 Dec 2016 14:04:23
Being reported in Italy that lucas has had a medical and that the loan has an option to buy.


1.) 30 Dec 2016 14:17:03
I think he's out of contract in May anyway, so there would be no need for an option to buy?

2.) 30 Dec 2016 15:53:32
I reported this last week on the rumor page and no one believed it as usual. Klopp was asked about Lucas and he rrrspinded with no decision has been made YET. I expect the lad to move in January.

3.) 30 Dec 2016 16:37:13
Not such a wise decision in my opinion. He's a good squad player and a player we will most likely need in the run in that we have next month. All sorts of games in every competition so he would play a valuable part of that but we are loaning him out? The timing really baffles me, should have just let him go in the summer then.

4.) 30 Dec 2016 17:10:49
James Pearce is usually reliable and tweeted Lucas contract actually runs until the summer of 2018, not this upcoming summer.

5.) 30 Dec 2016 17:19:28
It's clear that he's unable to push for a place in our midfield with Henderson and Stewart apparently preferred by Klopp in that position. It could be a sign that Joe Gomez is nearing a return if Klopp is prepared to let Lucas go in January, and that's good news to me.

It will be a sad day when he goes but I think it's probably the best for both parties if he moves on so he can play more regularly and Liverpool can start playing our youngsters in this role, and with Henderson asserting himself as captain, Milner and Matip I say we have enough leaders in the dressing room at this moment in time.

What do you think Ed001?

6.) 30 Dec 2016 17:38:49
It is nothing to do with other players and everything to do with his attitude and prior service. It is felt he deserves the opportunity to play regularly if he wants to go. While he does not really want to leave Liverpool, he does want regular first team football.

Whichever way he decides is fine by me, I am in full agreement that he has earnt the right to do what is best for him.

7.) 30 Dec 2016 19:16:58
Great fella but average footballer. Be sad to see him go for his influence in the dressing room rather than his play on the pitch. Good luck to him I really hope it works out.

{Ed001's Note - that is why he should go, ungrateful people like you can't even just wish him well without a dig.}

8.) 30 Dec 2016 19:37:23
My point of view is to let him leave for his career. Love the guy and how he came through the tough times the fans gave him. Let him thrive in Italy and good luck to him


9.) 31 Dec 2016 00:40:50
I would love it if he just saw out the season with us - guys like him are priceless when it comes to a tilt at the title and IF we were to win it, he would be hugely deserving of a winners medal for his commitment and attitude in the face of those who felt he wasn't fit to wear the shirt. Lucas, as far as I am concerned, is a Liverpool player through and through and I would be sorry to see him go.

10.) 31 Dec 2016 10:24:54
Good luck to the lad in all his future endeavours. With his his contract running out at the end of June he deserves it. In many respects he has been the perfect professional, playing whenever and wherever he has been needed. Many could learn a thing or two from his selfless attitude. Were he to stay with us he would have increasingly limited chances in both midfield and defence AND he really should be playing weekly somewhere. I'll probably watch whatever football he plays when I get a chance wherever he goes because he has been faultless in his support of us and the club we adore. He deserves ouyr support.

11.) 31 Dec 2016 10:32:19
Great servant for the club, for me before his bad injury a few seasons ago against chelsea he was one of our best players in my opinion and felt he would succeed gerrard as captain some day, alas it didn't happen. But a great player for us over 10 years, he had a tough start to life at anfield but changed his game and became a real talented player. If im not mistaken he is the last surviving player from rafa's reign. Hope he does what is best for him. Would love to see him stay until the end of the season but if he does go ill be happy for him. YNWA Lucas Leiva.

12.) 31 Dec 2016 11:15:00
Spot on Ed001. He has earned the right to choose and has been a great servant. I suspect that it is the right time, both for him to keep playing and for LFC to open up room for Gomez and possibly Stewart.
Also agree that he's been way better than average as a player.

13.) 31 Dec 2016 11:36:15
Still remember the moment Lucas broke Yaya Toure in 2011. Toure was on a high from the previous season and set off on one of his trademark dribbles and Lucas just stepped across him, eased him out of it, and set off in the other direction with the ball.

Toure went on to have a fairly indifferent season. Coincidence? I think not. He was probably haunted by the image of a Brazilian midfielder half his size outmuscling him for the rest of the season. (This is slightly tongue in cheek, btw)

Personally I'd be looking to keep Lucas if I were in charge because whilst Hendo hasn't let us down in that position, he has a bit of room to improve defensively and Can's not really got the head for the "pivot" position in our midfield. So I'd like to see us have the option of Lucas' experience to call on, especially when we're in Europe next season. But as Ed001 says, he's earned the right to choose to play regular football if he wants and needs to.

14.) 01 Jan 2017 08:29:12
Well said Ed01,i wish Lucas all the best.



21 Dec 2016 21:47:00
Transfer window
Well lads only 10 days till the window opens and I can honestly say this is the first time I don't think we need anyone. If you disagree state position and who? As a footnote if Klopp were to go into the market his past suggests he does business in the first week even in his Dortmund days so unless anyone was sold or a major injury I don't expect any business after the first week of the window has gone.


1.) 21 Dec 2016 22:17:51
Sell Sturridge and buy Icardi. Never going to happen but that's my 2 cents.

{Ed001's Note - god no, Icardi is trouble. He is Balotelli level problem.}

2.) 22 Dec 2016 01:39:09
Great team, good times! But don't kid yourself. Any team, including Liverpool could use improvement all the time!

3.) 22 Dec 2016 03:19:15
Buy a good LB ( Jordan amavi/ Tierney/ Gibbs / kosalniac) . Also if possible get a deal agreed for the summer for that lad Frank kessie like the one we did for gujric.
Thats not too much I hope 😋.

4.) 22 Dec 2016 06:26:56
Icardi is perfect imo. strong, fast, skillful and workhorse. Over the top he is a natural goal scorer would lead the line better than Sturridge.
A Klopp high would change his life forever.

{Ed001's Note - he is an utter bellend who should be nowhere the club.}

5.) 22 Dec 2016 07:19:51
As brilliant as Milner has been I still think ultimately we will need a left but for me a really food centre half.

Don't get me wrong, we have Matip ( brilliant) and both Lovren and Klavan were great on Monday night but our biggest weakness again this season has been the defence.

Once solution is young Gomez I suppose, who I thought was fantastic before his injury but is he ready yet? I don't think so.

6.) 22 Dec 2016 09:53:48
Would love to hear your opinion on what we should be doing in January Ed001?

As Villa don't look like getting near promotion this season I think Amavi would be a good bet. He's still young and wouldn't need to be thrown straight in as we have Milner there playing well. Klopp could ease him in over the next 6 months to get him ready for 1st choice next year.

Apart from that, unless we can suddenly pluck a world class CB out from somewhere I am happy with the squad for the rest of this season.

Cheers in advance.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced we need to do anything in January personally. I would rather see the youngsters given chances. Juanma at left back looks promising. If we buy players like Amavi, it is like telling Juanma to give it up. We do need a centre back, if Matip is going to continue to struggle with injuries. If not, I would prefer to wait until the summer.}

7.) 22 Dec 2016 09:55:41
Still a starting calibre left back! But hold fire if no one worthwhile is available!

8.) 22 Dec 2016 12:35:02
Icardi has the ultras on his back (maybe a bit OTT) but there's a reason for it.

He is an arse with no respect for fans or the source of his eccentric lifestyle. Like ed said, Mario mark 2.

9.) 23 Dec 2016 17:38:47
If ojo isn't ready to come in I'd like to see a bit more pace up top-out wide. Origi and mane are rapid but studge had lost a yard or two.



25 Jul 2016 21:50:11
Ssn reporting the foxes are considering an offer from Liverpool for chillwell.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 23:45:16
looking forward to seeing how this progresses. Echo saying that Klopp is backing out of a deal as he is not convinced of Chilwell's desire to move to us. Funny because they have a quote in speech marks but not based on an interview. So likely to be a re-phrased 2nd or 3rd hand comment via the kitchen lady.

2.) 26 Jul 2016 17:44:49
Ed01 has said Chilwell is still of interest to us.

24 May 2017 21:46:02
I know we are interested in Brandt but an alternative I wouldn't be disappointed in is Patrick Roberts. Had a fantastic season at Celtic but will now return to his parent club and I know he played on the right for Celtic but think he would be a great addition playing on the left for us. I can't see him dislodging either Sane or sterling so Ed2 if we were to show any interest would citeh be open to letting him go?


{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in him from Liverpool.}



21 May 2017 22:12:48
Thanks to all Eds for another great season on this site keep up the great work you do and us mere mortals will keep eating the chees before bedtime.


{Ed025's Note - cheers mate..

1.) 22 May 2017 10:51:47
Thank, Ed's. You guys rock!



19 May 2017 12:21:26
Need to get this off my chest, Over the past few years the thing that's really irked me is the way the board or whoever is responsible have let some really attainable transfers slip through the net. I know we can't go out and buy everyone or cannot afford some players but sometimes a certain player comes around that smacks you right in the face that he would fit the club perfectly. Deli alli was one, another a few years ago was bale. I can remember seeing him play for the saints as a young lad at LB and he was head and shoulders above the rest of the team even at that tender age. My point is we need a LB Fulham would sell so stop messing about and do a deal LFC. Even if he is loaned back for a year or two cause believe me this lad could be better than bale.


1.) 19 May 2017 13:20:15
Feel better now ace?

2.) 19 May 2017 14:12:41
Been sayin for ages the club haven't learned from the biggest error in the clubs history the day they offered Parry the job.

3.) 19 May 2017 14:28:55
I'm not sure that Bale would have signed. There was a time that Bale and that staunch Evertonian Aaron Lennon were posting a lot of insults about Scourers on social media. Lennon changed his tune and joined a second rate team. The biggest player that LFC missed out on was Christiano Ronaldo. He could have been bought for 5 million and he wanted to join Liverpool. The club didn't react so he joined United for 12.5 million. Who knows what would have happened had he joined Liverpool. The way the team was run he would probably have ended up playing alongside Nemeth and Della Vella.

4.) 19 May 2017 14:45:01
Kind of Mikey HaHa. But what papewee is saying is exactly the kind of thing im talking ie Ronaldo ect. Surely we can't continue to make the same mistakes or maybe we will who knows. Anyway good luck to the lads on sunday YNWA.

5.) 19 May 2017 15:24:19
Yeah but with every Ronaldo, bale and deli alli there is a le tallec, sinama pongolle. My point being that every wonder kid that comes onto the scene isn't going to be Ronaldo or bale. The board at the time deemed Ronaldo not worth the risk but le tallec and pongolle was. We will never know what would have happened if Ronaldo. Hindsight is a funny old thing.

6.) 19 May 2017 16:10:55
I'm sure every club has a list of players "that got away"

7.) 19 May 2017 17:11:06
Who's to say that at Liverpool these players would have attained the status they have, maybe they would or maybe they wouldn't, we'll never know. Maybe the coaching they got and players they played and trained with help them become the great players they are.

8.) 19 May 2017 19:44:18
We should have really made an effort to get a transfer for Freddy Adu 😝😝.



16 May 2017 21:38:56
Fulham have lost the play off we are signing R S 😜.


1.) 16 May 2017 21:42:24
I still think he will stay for another season. He is still a kid and won't be able to fully be part of the first team squad as he has school I think (I think it was Ed002 herself who alluded to this)

Res Sandman.

2.) 16 May 2017 21:47:21
God I hope we sign him, the kid is special. Can't handle another season of Milner cutting in on his right slowing down every possible attack before lofting the ball into the air with no pace into the keepers gloves.

3.) 16 May 2017 22:11:16
No one else is afraid we'll ruin him if we sign him?

It's not that I doubt the lad's ability, I doubt our ability. We have a poor record with young players of late.

4.) 16 May 2017 22:24:25
We need to go there with out hat in our hands and apologise for the Dempsie business. Offer them the right money that they deserve for him as well. Going to be a cracking player. He's a Liverpool supporter as well.

5.) 16 May 2017 23:51:11
He's different class. Put him in from the start.

6.) 17 May 2017 05:38:19
He'd be a great signing but also needs the time to develop. He's a kid with bags of talent and great potential but he needs the time (and freedom) to settle in, learn (which involves making mistakes) and mature into what he is capable of becoming without people getting on his back.

7.) 17 May 2017 08:43:19
He would get a decent run of games with all the mid week Europe action, both him and Milner can cover that position for the season.

8.) 17 May 2017 09:15:46
@King Carlos - I think we need to look beyond Milner, as first-teamer or substitute, if we really want to sort out our defensive issues. He is certainly not the only culprit but a part of a fractured unit that needs upgrading. If Milner acts as cover then we will have the same issues at left-back when he is called upon to cover - I can't see the point of that.

9.) 17 May 2017 16:14:17
Sign Pereira for Clyne and Sessegnon for Moreno - play Milner and TAA at RB and Pereira and Sessegnon at LB

Two seniors and two up and coming talents to play in cups/ rotate, and both Pereira and Milner can play both sides.

10.) 17 May 2017 23:41:44
That would be my call as well, Zimbo.



14 May 2017 16:38:33
Ive got to say the moment I saw West Ham players taking their kids on the pitch at the start I thought we would win as it sets the mind set. After the last home game of the season fair enough but not before.


1.) 14 May 2017 17:05:15
Good job they didn't do it after, don't think there was any West Ham fans left!

2.) 14 May 2017 17:34:42
Ha ha Fencey.

Migs is now reaching his prime years for a goalkeeper so fully expect him to start the season as our no 1.

MK i know a bit about the injury he has it can be managed so it would be sad if he is to be phased out?
