Ed, really strange news breaking in the media that Real Madrid might be having a look at Georginio Wijnaldum as a utility player. I take it we can dismiss the news? He would be a really expensive utility player and has only been with us a year.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. I am not so sure he would work as a utility player either.}

1.) 04 May 2017 19:30:47
It did seem one of the more odd rumours I've seen, it came out of Italy I believe and stated he was a back up option to hazard which in itself seems chalk and cheese.

{Ed002's Note - That does seem odd.}



31 Jan 2017 22:49:01
Sakho to palace confirmed, 2 mil loan fee seems a lot for 6 months though.


1.) 01 Feb 2017 02:44:52
Good deal for both parties - a shame as liked the guy and we could have done with a CB like him, but since Klopp has made up his mind good luck to him and hope he keeps Palace up.



12 Jan 2017 21:09:30
Ed, are Liverpool not interested at all in Saed Kolasinac. I would have thought we are still looking for a longer term solution at LB.


{Ed001's Note - such as Juanma! He has impressed as he has settled into English football.}

1.) 13 Jan 2017 00:34:57
very happy to hear that 001

{Ed001's Note - let's just hope he really has it.}

2.) 13 Jan 2017 05:06:08
You think is he ready for the 1st team soon? Read a few times of you praising him. Can't wait to watch him.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen enough to judge him, but certainly the coaches believe he is growing into the English game.}

3.) 13 Jan 2017 06:46:53
lets at least give him a chance, milner proved us all wrong so let's see what this lad is made of, we might have the answer to our problems staring us in the face, his path to the 1st team must not be blocked other wise what sort of message are we sending out not only to him but to all the youngsters who are impressing the coaches, not all of them will make it but let's at least give them a chance.

4.) 13 Jan 2017 10:41:46
Has a great throw in on him apparently!

5.) 13 Jan 2017 12:42:47
I`m eager to see him play as Ed has mentioned numerous times that the coaches think he`s the real deal.

6.) 13 Jan 2017 11:03:19
Cheers ed, I didn't realise he was so highly rated. I presume they will assess it in the summer and if he carries on improving will be given a shot pre season.

{Ed001's Note - unless injuries force him to get a shot.}

7.) 13 Jan 2017 19:02:57
Has there ever been talk of Milner playing right back, as we've had a few looks at some left backs. I know he's been excellent and a little harsh to shunt him again, just wondering. I know clyne's popularity is divided. For me he's so close to being another finan. Perhaps some competition might bring his game up like it did with finan.



06 Apr 2016 17:09:06
With Athletico looking unlikely to be able to do business with Chelsea for Costa this summer, do the eds know if there is any substance to the stories that they may be looking to benteke as an alternative?
I don't believe the quoted newspaper figures for a second but just wondered if they would be a likely buyer?


{Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any interest from them.}



08 Feb 2016 13:24:47
AC Milan have the option to buy Ballotelli for 5.5 mil and are aparantly still not interested, could be difficult to move on by the sounds of things.


1.) 08 Feb 2016 18:28:10
He's a great player.

He will have endless options to move to big clubs.

2.) 08 Feb 2016 20:24:29
£5.5m still sounds a bit steep.

3.) 08 Feb 2016 20:28:09
Suerly we can move him on to a Chinese or Middle Eastern club for more than that!

Whatever you think of the guy he will generate revenue particularly for a Chinese club looking for big name signings.

4.) 08 Feb 2016 22:11:06
I think ed002 has already alluded to Inter possibly buying him and moving him on swiftly for a quick profit.

5.) 09 Feb 2016 02:17:13
A Chinese club would surely benefit from his profile, not sure he'd want to move there though. On the other hand perhaps he would be tempted by the cheap fireworks?

6.) 09 Feb 2016 08:33:34
Hey Irish, i think the Ed meant AC as it is part of the loan to buy arrangement. Inter was on error.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

7.) 10 Feb 2016 21:32:16
Tongue in cheek you divvies.

Ed I want to ask a question about the Spanish press story that we are about to offer Salah new terms on £400K a week. I'm not asking about the validity of it as it is so outlandish it can't be and it would put us in a tight spot with regards to our other high end players. The question is why report it and what is the angle, could they be trying to unsettle him? It litteraly makes no sense since he signed new terms on mega money last year.


{Ed002's Note - No they are not trying to unsettle him. They will have reported it as they have been told that is the case.}

1.) 20 Jul 2019 11:42:57
We can’t be paying him that much Ed, Guaranga.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 11:47:47
Well one thing is for sure, with Salah about to sing a massive new contract, whoever wants to take him from us will be paying the highest premium.

3.) 20 Jul 2019 11:57:25
Perhaps the agent angling for a pay rise?, there's no way we are going to pay a player that much.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 12:00:22
If Ramsey is deemed to be worth 400k at Juve and Sanchez 350k at utd, God knows what Salah, Mane, Virgil et al. are worth.

5.) 20 Jul 2019 12:09:53
Whenever I see the word guaranga I can’t help thinking of the very first GTA game.

6.) 20 Jul 2019 12:17:02
Sanchez at £350k+ per week still makes me laugh. And they’re stuck with him as he’s become football’s equivalent of a Giffen good.

7.) 20 Jul 2019 12:40:35
Can only imagine what its like to be on 100k+ every week and still feel like you need more.

8.) 20 Jul 2019 13:11:47
How can Salah feel like he wants more money when LFC are securing future investment for a player which wants to leave?

{Ed025's Note - its called avarice mate..

9.) 20 Jul 2019 13:32:14
Nah Ed025, when another team approaches us for Salah on a lucritve contract, and let's face it he is a top player then we will be in the driving seat when it comes to negotiations. We do not need to sell Salah, just remember that.

{Ed025's Note - i know you dont max, but keeping a player who does not want to be there creates its own problems..

10.) 20 Jul 2019 14:59:01
If he came to me and asked for £400k per week I'd tell him where to shove it and go find a club who will pay it, plus the £150m transfer fee required. Thank you very much. He's good but that's an outlandish figure and will have an impact on every other good player at the club plus it will mean any quality player we want to sign will have that in mind as their starting salary. I'm also aware that this story is 99.9% likely to be untrue.

11.) 20 Jul 2019 13:54:48
If Salah wanted to go he would have been throwing his toys like Coutinho Ed025.

That is the difference. We know Salah wants to play for Real but at this point he has limited options so he will not be forcing a move unless another club to his prefernce puts up or shuts up.

Hope that clears the situation Ed025.

Salah is a beast, he is ours.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that mate..

12.) 20 Jul 2019 23:00:42
I’d rather sell Salah for 50 million than pay him anyway near 400,000 a week wages. He will be easily replaced.

13.) 21 Jul 2019 02:28:40
Not a chance that LFC with this current structure will even consider doubling salahs wage, he has 4 years I think left on his contract, already our top earner on 200k. If he wants that type of money he will need to leave. United have messed up with Sanchez, arsenal have messed up with ozil.

Once you set the paying rate that high you begin to create problems within the squad. When Ramsey sees ozil on that money he can then say that he deserves that too, rashford can ask why he's not deserving of Sanchez wage.

Our current situation is good, our first team players earn between 120 and 150k a week, very balanced and similar pay to each. I think firmino and VVD slightly more and salah the top at 200k. Mane only signed a long deal last year happily with only 90k. I like this structure, if any player wants to upset it he can get lost.

De ligt or mbappe would never happen if they can get silly money elsewhere. Madrid are stuck with bale because they paid him stupid money. Players hunger disappears when they get a contract that they know will never be topped. Sanchez ozil Ramsey bale, late 20s being offered 5 year deals on that money, that's when a player can easily relax and stop caring.

14.) 20 Jul 2019 22:47:51
Ed25, Salah leaving us does not depend only on him. He wants to play for RM and that is his business. That has nothing to do with the contractual commitment he has with us and he is intelligent enuff to know that. If he wanted to move at all cost, we all would have known about it. He is not angling for a move this summer so he will play out this season like he always has his last two season, killing it in the PL and CL. Next summer tho, things may be diff.

{Ed025's Note - a lot of it is down to his agent redwolf, yet another greedy blood sucking leech who is taking money out the game that should be used to enhance grass roots football imo mate..

15.) 21 Jul 2019 13:44:08
I fully agree, Ed25.



13 Jul 2019 11:31:24
Hi Eds, I noticed nothing has been said about Dani Olmo since December and we have some tenuous links to him at the moment. I know he plays in a position we are looking at but only 21 and relitivly unproven (although looks tidy from what I've seen) anything in it?


{Ed002's Note - Dani Olmo (AM/W) has been looked at by West Ham for more than a year when Dinamo Zagreb were happy to profiteer. They wanted too much and he has spent the season in Zagreb. With recent interest from Borussia Dortmund, Milan, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Cagliari and most noticably Bayern Munich, Spurs and Bayer Leverkusen, he will be moving this summer - but Spurs have now opted for an alternate solution.}

1.) 13 Jul 2019 11:43:50
Thanks Ed.



15 Jul 2018 18:52:43
I'm still not a fan of VAR even in super slow mo people have differing opinions on handballs etc but for me the biggest impact it would have in the prem is that it will disadvantage the smaller teams further as the bigger ones spend most of the game in their penalty area. I don't want the prem to end up a total precession with the top teams beating the little ones by cricket scores with 4 penalties. The refs are not great in England but I'd still leave it in their hands.


1.) 15 Jul 2018 19:03:38
I agree with that. I like the idea of VAR but things are so subjective which is a big concern. Furthermore, it can take quite a while to come to a decision (as we saw today in the final) is that area needs improving.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 19:07:37
I don’t agree.

The other team will only have more penalties if the team has given away penalties.

VAR isn’t generally making incorrect decisions. The difference is that it is highlighting instances where infringements aren’t seen or are more debatable to refs in the moment and clarifying them as penalties.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 20:18:35
Personally i think your all missing the major point of how poor the refereeing was at the world cup.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 20:57:51
OP, I disagree. VAR does not review everything. In the WC, there are things that VAR is allowed to review like potential fouls in the box that lead to penalties or goals, goals scored or disallowed in real time, and offsides that lead to goals as in, situations that change games. VAR is not allowed to review a tackle in midfield.
VAR is just a replay system that allows the ref to take a look at key incidents (Which are already selected) that they otherwise may not have been able to see in real time. It does not mean it will get it right all the time as that is and has NEVER been the goal or video replay. It is used to get decisions correct for the MOST part however, VAR or not, the decision is made by the ref and no one else.

Therefore, I do not see where smaller teams will be harmed by this provided everyone knows what the ref can use VAR for and what he can't. If there is a penalty for Wolves vs City at the Emptyhad and VAR is used to review it correctly, there is nothing anyone can do about it. The fear here is that the ref uses VAR and sees that it is a penalty and then bottles it. Thais the fear we should all have, IMO.

5.) 15 Jul 2018 21:17:08
It doesn't even get decisions right. It got one wrong in the World Cup final why would we want that?

6.) 15 Jul 2018 21:57:15
Den, that would help us though when we can’t break down stubborn teams, and i’m sure you won’t complain then ;)

I agree though i’ve never liked VAR and never will. Human error is what makes things "fun"

7.) 15 Jul 2018 22:02:32
VAR doesn't make decisions. It's still people that do that bit. And they'll still get it wrong.

8.) 15 Jul 2018 22:04:16
I can only assume some responses are from children. Var simply gives the ref the opportunity to review a decision or an incident which he hadn't seen for what ever reason. Var doesn't make decision s, that still rests with the ref. Var resulted in some great decisions in the world Cup, giving core t penalties and cancelling out one that was incorrectly awarded by the ref.

I for one am all for it and will judge the success of var once fully Implemented.

9.) 16 Jul 2018 02:12:55
In all fairness though the VAR system is still crap, i’m guessing on the TV we don't get the ALL of the clips they get to see?
Because if we do, sometimes they are from rubbish angles and ridiculous slow motion, hardly any real time clips.
Refs try and stick to their initial decision anyway to not look stupid (which they do if VAR shows they are wrong) and they waste time for nothing.

Also is it really just the ref decision? What about the others watching the replays? Do they not conflict with the ref and confuse him? XD.

10.) 16 Jul 2018 06:51:04
It’s something else to blame if we don’t get a result which can only be a plus for the game 👍.

20 Jun 2018 22:57:40
I know ed02 loves a random name so here goes, if we were considering shakiri as cover for the front three would Bernard not make more sense as his contact has just expired? Providing of course that he would be willing to play a squad role.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 23:27:04
Didn’t we watch him a long time ago or am I wrong? I’m probably wrong. I know a few years ago he was rated highly but I thought spurs had a look. I’m probably wrong about that too.

2.) 21 Jun 2018 08:15:55
Manning? A bit controversial maybe.

That's negative even for Walter, 2 of cities 3 CBs are injured and even with their massive squad depth you would think that would be a tough situation to come through without dropping points. I think we have every chance this season.

He definitely gets that slot on the bench for me, if he doesn't then what was the point of signing him to a new deal. He is third choice striker and origi is injured, give him his chance.

I think they will start the year really well the question is will the wheels well and truly come off 10-15 games in, they have some decent players there but some questionable attitudes.

I think you have to give them credit for the result, they defended the 1 goal lead very well and we couldn't find a way through. We didn't play badly it is what it is. I still fancy us to go through with the Annfield crowd behind us.

Fair play Ed I'm guessing that means Everton can be summed up by a solitary FA Cup win in 95 anything before that must be too long ago to remember 😂.

It was another one of those challenges where the player can't possibly get to the ball and so plays the man to prevent a break. It was really unfortunate that it ended with such a horrendous injury and son is by no means a dirty player but tackles where there is no attempt to get to the ball will always carry a risk.
