Sorry if it's something you've touched upon recently but how is the interest in players we are looking to off load or themselves looking to leave. Moreno, mignolet, Grujic, Sturridge, Lallana, Clyne, Ings I presume will go through. Or any other players I haven't mentioned. Thanks for all the work I presume transfer season will really kick in and get silly after the final.

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - (a) Benfica want Morena as their first choice is proving hard to get and Fenerbahce are keen - Lazio have moved on to another target, as have Napoli. (b) Bounemouth, Norwich and Brugge could be priced out of a move. (c) Hertha, Torino and Werder Bremen want loans as Liverpool have priced him out of a sale. (d) Nothing firm but interest from Australia. (e) Nothing firm. (f) Clyne is of interest to Bournemouth, Napoli and West Ham if the price is reasonable. (g) I would think so. (h) There are loads of others as the club are now looking to buy success as the academy players like Connor Randall, Harry Wilson, Juanma, Masterson, Whelan, Allan, Tagseth, Ojo, Kent, Adekanye, Awonyi etc. no longer are see as a fit for the club.}

Get them Marquee players in!

2.) 30 May 2019 19:33:17
Thanks for the reply. Do you feel any of the youngsters given time could push for positions in the squad if not starting 11. Or do you feel Liverpool are trying to capitalize on their position at the moment by signing players that may be more interested in joining us now than they may have a few years ago and this will be at the cost of the youth being given time and opportunity.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have seemingly given up on the youngsters.}

3.) 30 May 2019 21:05:43
Apart from Trent, Gomez and Brewster.

4.) 30 May 2019 21:16:32
And Hoever.

5.) 30 May 2019 21:21:29
I think it’s difficult and sad at the same time, sad because I do agree with Ed002 we have moved away from that youth development.

But it I think given the issues with money in the game “buying” success seems to be a solution, as much as I’d like to see us push youth the demand for success is ruining that.

6.) 30 May 2019 23:00:35
Liverpool and Klopp have not moved away from youth development.

As the club gets more successful a product if this is of course that it is harder for a younger player to find a position within the squad. Youth recruitment and development within the u23s and u18s must keep up to meet the demands required by the management team.

We have a player that will be part of the first team squad next season that could meet these demands in Rhian Brewster. Others mentioned also have a shot.

1 player every 2 seasons good enough to impact a squad like ours from our support setup is a massive achievement.

7.) 30 May 2019 23:24:29
Current first team players Gomez and TAA. if the kids are good enough they will get the chance.

8.) 31 May 2019 07:36:06
We are now a club that's competing at the top end of the Premiership and Champions league, so to bring players through the Academy they have to be special. TAA is proof that if they are good enough they will get an opportunity.
All the top clubs have a similar view. did the final the other day have any players brought through their own system?
We are still trying to bring young players through, or buy young players we can develop, that are better than the young players we already have.
I am with Ed02 on the opinion that Paying 70 million on players to compete for a place in the team is madness.
Look at Gini after coming on against Barcelona, he said he was angry with Klopp because he was on the bench and he has come out again and said he will be angry if he doesn't start on Saturday.
It his great that he has that in his make up and wants to play, but eventually he will want to leave, than become a bit part player.

9.) 31 May 2019 08:05:59
Plenty of clubs spend money on players, Liverpool are far from alone in that.

10.) 31 May 2019 07:23:23
Juanama was thought highly 2 years back. Now he is on the way out? . Ed001 can you give insight on this?

{Ed001's Note - he suffered injuries and never reached his potential or hasn't yet anyway.}

11.) 31 May 2019 08:57:41
Liverpool's development of young players has been good, but not necessarily good enough to get many of them into our starting 11-17. If it helps us generate funds through player sales which can then be used to help recruit higher class players it has done its job hasn't it? Not the preferred outcome of course, (I know we'd all love to have a team made up of 5/ 6 homegrown heroes like the gerrard / carra / Fowler / Owen / Stevie Mc. era) but not a bad return.

12.) 31 May 2019 09:00:59
like its your money.

13.) 31 May 2019 10:34:30
I like the idea of buying the league, but just a shame for us that other clubs have done it better than us. so far anyways . . .

14.) 31 May 2019 10:36:17
I think we are developing players quite well to be sold to fund the first team, examples

Ibe to Bournemouth
Smith to Bournemouth
Solanke to Bournemouth
Stewart to Hull
Danny Ward to Leicester
Andre Wisdom to Derby

Who would have thought that lot would net close to 60,000,000 in sales? It would be preferred to see them succeed at LFC but none of the above have turned out to be stars since leaving.

15.) 31 May 2019 12:23:52
If there good enough they will make it, a lot can change between youth football and mens.

16.) 31 May 2019 12:56:28
Make it a rule that squad sizes (for over 21’s) are to be reduced to 16/ 17 players and that way the kids will be alright. None of this stockpiling malarkey and teams spending huge amounts on reserves. Can’t see a sensible fan in the land not being up for that.

17.) 31 May 2019 13:32:43
Its pretty simple unfortunately - every year a new bunch of youngsters will come through, but once players mature and join the first team, players can play for Liverpool for many years if they’re good enough. Simple maths means that not many can make it into the first team as opportunities are few and far between.

Pair that with the fact that many juniors will lose their way (eg. simply not good enough, their first pro contract goes to their head, they don’t grow physically, the learn to enjoy partying over training etc. ) then only a very few kids will ever be good enough to play for one of the largest teams in the world.

I don’t think Liverpool are giving up on youth at all as we’ve seen from Trent, Gomez, Brewster. if they were good enough (and lucky enough) then they’ll get their shot. It’s just very few will ever get the chances for many valid reasons.

18.) 31 May 2019 14:21:43
King Carlos. You've forgotten Jerome Sinclair. Didn't we also get a few million for him?

19.) 31 May 2019 20:51:36
Danny Wilson too. I remember he was tipped to be the next big CB.

20.) 03 Jun 2019 00:37:18
the problem with being a top tier team is that the youth players will get less chances to prove themselves on a regular basis unless there is extraordinary talent.

i still see a good point in recruiting and developing youngsters and then sell them on for a profit.



28 Nov 2018 10:49:13
Morning Ed's. Is there anything on Milner being offered a new contract or do you expect him to be offered one and what sort of length. Milner strikes me as the sort of player that would leave to guarantee first team football rather than sit on a bench. But with his versatility/ professionalism let alone his performances over the last 12-18 months I hope he signs a new deal.
Are there any foreign based players out of contract in the summer that would be of interest to Liverpool at all?

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - I would expect that Liverpool will sit down and explain to Milner that his opportunities will be limited and perhaps Camacho will be integrated in to midfield. That might give him the opportunity to return to Leeds perhaps. I am not aware of any out of contract players being considered.}

1.) 28 Nov 2018 16:10:47
I would be gutted to see Milner leave - but I wouldn't begrudge him the opportunity to leave and continue playing first team football well into his thirties. as long as it's not with one of our direct rivals ;-)

2.) 28 Nov 2018 17:26:50
I hope both he and the club decide for him to stick around for a year or two. He will be missed if he decides to leave.

3.) 28 Nov 2018 22:11:50
Ed isn't Camacho more of a winger than a midfielder in a 3, would of thought Curtis Jones being primed for that midfield 3 position as it's more of a natural position for him than Camacho, I like Camacho though want too see more of him .

{Ed002's Note - It was an example - most of the kids stand little or no chance of progressing.)

4.) 07 Dec 2018 21:00:04
based on early season form, surely JM is worthy of a one year extension no?



02 Aug 2018 04:37:58
Sorry Ed's I appreciate you get asked this god knows how many times a day but is there much update on outgoing players. There seems plenty of media speculation about mignolet, and there was a few bits about Ings to Palace but with them close to Meyer and signing Kayoute do they still have the funds to sign players and pay the wages. We seem overloaded up front and unfortunately Solanke, Ings, Origi just don't seem good enough to make an impact for us or ever challenge for a starting position.

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - Ings is certainly on his way out and others will follow.}

1.) 02 Aug 2018 09:54:23
Thanks Ed, looking forward to seeing Allison make his debut against Roma.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 10:25:15
Alisson's debut will be against Napoli.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 11:55:13
Sorry yea on sat got the teams mixed up.

4.) 02 Aug 2018 12:21:50
I thought markovic could leave for free this summer if a deal wasn't agreed last January, but I'm seeing reports of loans and possible sale. Or am I mistaken?

5.) 02 Aug 2018 18:45:48
Hey ed02. You said that Ings was interesting Palace so off the back of that I put 10 pounds on him at 10-1 to do so. If he does move there I will put 20 pounds of my winnings to your fav charity if you can let me know what it is. Thanks (in advance if he does)

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Robbie but I really don’t want to be encouraging gambling at all.}

6.) 02 Aug 2018 19:26:54
No understand that and I wasn’t suggesting others do. Apologies if that has upset anybody. Thanks for the great job you guys do.

7.) 02 Aug 2018 22:22:07
Robbie what a great idea. Can’t see anything wrong with you taking a punt on a bet and wanting to share the success. Massive fan of Dementia UK as I think it’s an illness that always goes a miss in Consideration of the spectrum and charity hands outs. I’m sure many would agree and many families effected by this.

If people are gambling for fun (after all isent every transfer a gamble) and want to give money away to good causes can’t see anything wrong with that.

When the fun stops stop :) great gesture Robbie!



05 Jan 2018 10:49:16
Morning eds. I know we can't sign everyone but I've seen we've been linked with or suggested that Draxler would be a good fit to replace Couts, but how about Lucas Moura, if rumours are true he's available. He seems s good player with a lot of pace that suits liverpools style of play, any interest at all and do you feel he could work in our team?
Thanks for all the work you guys do.

Ibiza Red

1.) 05 Jan 2018 12:01:37
I want Lemar because that is who Klopp clearly wants. I also think he is a quality player with big potential.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 13:09:31
Lucas moura is the Brazilian Theo Walcott. Direct, pacey but inconsistent and with more hype than end product. Not worth it IMO.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 14:32:52
I think he didn't settle in Europe. Still think he's a better player than the one we've seen at psg. Though maybe not the player many people see in FIFA.

Hi Ed's. Great result today even if at times we weren't at our best we still managed 3-0 away from home. Thought Fabinho was great along with VVD. Salah a little greedy at times but good to see he is full of confidence and self belief where at times last year he didn't look like that.
On transfers do you see anyone leaving in next 2 days. Kent, Lovren or anyone else.
Thanks for all the hard work.

Ibiza Red

{Ed001's Note - Kent is the most likely to go, he wants out.}

1.) 31 Aug 2019 20:43:00
Fabinho is so impressive and efficient in what he does. Absolutely brilliant player.

{Ed047's Note - love him, he just gets it done

2.) 31 Aug 2019 21:51:18
He was great today. In the spercup though Kante ran all over him.

{Ed001's Note - they don't play the same area of the pitch, so that makes no sense. If you mean Fabinho was constantly forced to come over and try and cover that side due to Kante, then I agree. It might have helped if he had been on that side so he could try and match up to Kante in future games against him. Then at least he won't always be having to come over on the cover and actually be in place, as Kante is too good to be stopped by someone trying to cover more than one part of the pitch.}

3.) 31 Aug 2019 21:55:56
With the terrible preparation of pre season this term, for known reasons with international duty and that.
to get a perfect 4/ 4 is absolutely unbelievable from the lads. I can't quite believe we've remained perfect. Excellent Liverpool.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 22:15:50
Still waiting for Waro to come out of hiding and tell us again that this team is in serious trouble this season.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 23:01:34
It’s Bobby again for me today, he was involved in all our attacks and is just brilliant at breaking up the opposition position. As soon as he gets hold of the ball, Mane and Salah are away, they know the ball is coming to them

He’s my favourite player and the unsung hero of our team.

6.) 01 Sep 2019 00:20:47
I’d hardly say he’s an unsung hero Drogie. Him Salah and Hendo get lots and lots of appreciation on here.

7.) 01 Sep 2019 01:11:21
I did not expect this perfect start so hayho, well done and over the moon. but our difficult periods still to come December onwards.

8.) 01 Sep 2019 06:27:13
Wasn’t generally speaking about Bobby on here jk23 mate, have lots of debates and conversations outside of this site and he certainly doesn’t get the credit he deserves just because he’s not your typical number 9

Criticism might be too strong a word but it tends to come from those that haven’t seen him like, to see how good he is.

Did I read correctly, he’s the first Brazilian in the premier league to reach 59 goals. That’s not bad either!

9.) 01 Sep 2019 08:28:51
Get what you mean Drogie 👍. Not sure if yours was a typo but he’s first Brazilian to get 50 goals I believe and only a small number of Liverpool players to score 50 premier league goals. I think Mane will be next to that mark as he’s only a few off I think.

10.) 01 Sep 2019 10:57:03
Yeah I meant 50 mate.59 would have been a bit random 😂.

11.) 01 Sep 2019 16:05:33
If you had had 69 then I would have said it might have been a slip of the tongue 😉😂.

12.) 01 Sep 2019 22:21:59
Poor assessment, Mark. If you think Kante ran Fab ragged, go watch the game again cos Fab was always left alone to come across and cover gaps left by his team mates.



18 Apr 2019 08:11:07
Is there any confirmation on dates of the Barcelona ties. At the moment it says both semis are on Tuesday 30th surely that can't be right?

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - It is.}

1.) 18 Apr 2019 08:15:51
Both games on the same night? Even without a flight to Barcelona that’s tough!

2.) 18 Apr 2019 08:18:54
Ibiza the 2nd leg is the following week. The 7th I believe.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 08:43:39
Imagine if we have it in our hands going into wolves game. That week would see anfield under the lights semi 2nd leg vs Barcelona and just days later hopefully the league decider.

Just imagine the potential magic that week might produce. Spine tingling at the thought of it.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 08:52:03
Ibiza, I think that means both semis - Liv/ Barca and Ajax/ Spurs - are on the same day.

Not that both legs will be played on the same day ;-)

This isn't an Under 9s round robin tournament :D.

5.) 18 Apr 2019 08:41:17
I know when the return leg is but I’m trying to establish if Liverpool play Tuesday or Wednesday in each week. Everywhere at the moment says both semi finals are on the same day each week but surely tv scheduling wouldn’t allow that.

{Ed002's Note - They will confirm the scheduling in the coming days. They will both be listed as the same date until it is.}

6.) 18 Apr 2019 09:28:45
Just been confirmed.

Spurs are 30th April/ 8th May and we are 1st May/ 7th May.

Seems a bit odd to stagger them, especially as one pair get 8 days in between and the other paid only get 6?

There’s probably a reason (linked to money! ) as to why they aren’t both on 7 day gaps!

7.) 18 Apr 2019 12:14:36
Some broadcasters get allocations of matches between them. Alternating days is to give them the opportunity to show one leg of each tie. Remember the Sky/ ITV days?



31 Mar 2019 15:16:55
Hi Ed's. Do you know what the idea is for Kent next season. I appreciate the Scottish League is at a very different level, but he looks decent and is getting plenty of game time. Will it be a case of pre season and see how he does before another possible loan or sale? Or do you think he will Ben kept as a squad player as will help with British based players.
Or any of the other loan players playing their way back into our squad with their performances this season?
Thanks and let's smash the spuds.

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - It would appear the club will sell him if they can.}

1.) 31 Mar 2019 18:40:06
In this market, with a solid season playing for a famous (if not currently very great) team mean that this is the window we'll probably get the most for him. He's not going to get much game time for us next season if he stays, so i reckon it's best for everyone that he moves on, and hopefully keeps improving and gets a top level career.

{Ed002's Note - He won;t get any game time as there is no place in the squad for him RP.}

He needs to leave and forge a career elsewhere. I wish him all the best.

There are a number of 20/ 21 year olds in our youth teams who need to be allowed to go as they are both in need of proper experience and allow spaces for younger players.



23 Feb 2019 07:11:11
Ed's, do you know if Liverpool or any other clubs are under investigation about transfers in a Similar way which has led to Chelsea being given a transfer ban. Just it said it was a 3 year investigation and I know it's been said on numerous times Liverpool don't always act in the correct ways during transfers. Thanks.

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - Yes, numerous other transfers are being looked at and the majority of the issues found fall in to the area of what I would call "noise", which is the issue that has drawn The FA in to this and accounts for all but one, or just perhaps two, of the issues Chelsea face. And this is due to a "mismatch" of The FA system with the FIFA regulations. As such, The FA are also appealing this. However, some additional issues have also been found with a number of transfers - at least one (nothing to do with Liverpool) appears to be serious and I expect a charge to be made about that. A number of other clubs (including Liverpool) will be awaiting to see what happens with the appeal from The FA and FIFA may look to do the same. In the meantime FIFA will continue to look in to English and Welsh transfers with the assistance of The FA and the clubs.}



08 Feb 2019 06:13:04
Is there an update on injury news for the weekend? Are Gini Lovren and Henderson likely to be available for selection again and how far is Trent away from being available for selection.
I'm presuming it will be a while until Ox is available and has Gomez actually had surgery or are they still deciding if it is necessary?
Thanks for all your hard work.

Ibiza Red

1.) 08 Feb 2019 07:11:40
Trent gini and Henderson back training but no lovren yet. Expect Gomez to miss most of the run in.

2.) 08 Feb 2019 08:06:11
Hopefully all three of those straight back into the team if they are training. Swap Matip out and put Fabinho alongside VVD instead. Keita or Milner in midfield alongside Hendo and Gini.

3.) 08 Feb 2019 08:28:11
I'd be surprised to see all of them starting against Bournemouth tbh but at least now we can hopefully start to get a regular settled strong 11 on the field for huge upcoming games.

4.) 08 Feb 2019 09:39:07
We will find out at 1:30 today I guess. But they trained yesterday. Apart from lovren.

5.) 08 Feb 2019 10:48:27
For me, we need to urgently get back on course. Need to make a statement that all is still well and smash Bournemouth. A 4-2-3-1 with Fabinho and Henderson/ Gini in midfield and Mane, Firmino, Salah and Keita up front with Shaqiri coming in, in the second half if Keita is not firing.

We don't play anyone for another 12 days after this game. Plenty of time to rest. And train with the confidence that we're back on track.

Well they have apparently had a bid of €70 million excepted for Dybala and even though they play different positions that's a help of an amount on wages for the spuds to pay.

Not that I expect it to be true but fair play to the lad he’s put in some decent performances for Fulham since he joined them, far better than I was expecting. Sure another prem club will look to take him.

My opinion is he's a great player that works perfectly in the system that Klopp plays as we have mane and Salah that can score goals too. It's not your natural goal poacher that so many number 9s are like fowler Owen or in the premiership now like Kane. Now I hate Kane he's a selfish player but his goals speak for themself. I would rather Firmino in the Liverpool team than Kane as I don't see Kane working for us but if you asked fans of the other 19 clubs of the premier they would probably all take Kane over Bobby. Every players value is how they work in the team they are in. There aren't many players now that you can just shove in a team just because they are good. There's been many examples of great players not working at clubs because they don't suit the system.

To be honest I don't think we have to much to worry about. Arsenal have probably done the best business. Man United's window has been poor for me in terms of what they needed. Chelsea haven't done wonders especially with losing Hazard. Spurs have done well but not as well as it was looking at one point and there's a good chance Levy will try and balance the books by selling Erikson and rose which could arguably leave them weaker than before. City have a replacement for fernandinho but it will be impossible to compete in window with them. Klopp has released a lot of deadwood and freed up a lot in wages. Hopefully Keita will turn up this season and with Ox back and Brewster could be promising.

We have Milner, Henderson, Fabinho, wijnaldum, lallana, Keita, Shaqiri, Ox to essentially cover 3 midfielkd positions so there is plenty of quality and cover there. But unless Keita turns into the player we all hoped he would I'm sure most fans feel we could still add quality to that midfield certainly in terms of creativity even if we would struggle to find players with the same work rate. Like wise with forwards after the front 3 Brewster is a risk and as greatful as I am for his heroics from last season you wouldn't want Origi starting week in week out if we got a long term injury to Mane, Salah or Bobby. Then left back we would struggle if Robertson got injured. Happy enough with cover at centre back and right back though and keeper now.

What if Senegal win the AFCON? Wouldn't Mane be in with a shout then? Our most dangerous attacking player this season. But I think it will go to VVD.
