Whether we sign any or all of Pepe, Cornet or Mazraoui, I'm guessing it won't be until after the Africa Cup of Nations. Of course there'll be machinations and agreements going on in the background, but (unless an urgent need arises) taking a player from his national team to go sign and do as medical etc. would be an unwanted distraction. So whatever deals are done probably won't be finalized until after the tournament. So let's just try to relax and enjoy watching our current and future Anfield Africa superstars and give the Eds a break from the same questions for a few weeks.

(PS: So strange Fabinho wasn't picked for Brazil's Copa America squad, especially considering his versatility. I guess Tite likes a specialist, but come on, Fágner? He wasn't even good enough for Wolfsburg)

I think it is good news for us that he isn't picked. Be great to get a full season out of Fabinho next year.



31 May 2019 12:47:36
Just read Milner is to be offered a 1 year extension and Matip will get a new contract. Both are good news imo.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 31 May 2019 13:26:47
Yeh great news.
Hope Milner decides to stay and Matip deserves a new contract.

2.) 31 May 2019 19:03:10
It will be an easier task replacing Salah than Milner.
Great news if true.

3.) 01 Jun 2019 10:55:58
I thought Milner would leave if Leeds were promoted but they weren't so I see him staying, he's a very influential player who any team would be lucky to have, if this is true then its great news. I won't comment on Matip (prove me wrong lad, go and score the winner tonight) .



21 May 2019 10:42:13
Just read Brandt's signing for Dortmund.
Is it true Eds?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any agreement but my view was that Julian Brandt would become a viable option if Bayer Leverkusen did't make the CL (which they have). Add to that Borussia Dortmund have already agreed the transfer of a not entirely dissimilar Thorgan Hazard so they may not push for a deal - although they do remain keen on adding an AM.}

1.) 21 May 2019 11:46:39
I think given Leverkusen have qualified for the champions league their two main stars will stay. Havertz and Brandt they are both developing well, young, will be competing at the highest level.

2.) 21 May 2019 13:02:58
Any alternatives for us Ed yet if he does go there or is it all as you have previously explained?

{Ed002's Note - It is as I have explained.}

3.) 21 May 2019 13:37:37
I doubt that southern.



17 Apr 2019 13:52:28
Just saw claims we're scouting Nicolas Pépé. Random name Eds or anything to it?
Thanks v much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - He would be a straight replacement for Salah - will there be space with Dybala, Insigne and all of the others? I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 17 Apr 2019 14:14:54
Haha, thought so. But yes I hear Klopp is planning on changing to a 2-2-6 formation next season. :)

2.) 17 Apr 2019 17:12:50
Pepe looks an incredible talent, however he's blatantly moving elsewhere.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 17:29:25
2-2-6 is a little conservative when surely all we need at the back is Virgil though. Typical Klopp 😂😂.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 18:24:08
Where's he going semi?

5.) 17 Apr 2019 18:34:15
We pretty much already play 2-5-3, considering that our full backs spend more time in the opposition's half than our own.

6.) 17 Apr 2019 19:52:24
Eds2 that would be a strong bench.



01 Feb 2019 11:30:52
Eds any idea what happened with Bobby Adekanye? Was the Lazio move ever on and what does his future have in store at Liverpool or elsewhere?
Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - There was no deal with Lazio - but it is down to another player wanting first team time - a growing problem.)

1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:03:24
are you allowed to mention the player in question? are we talking about a certain striker who is out injured at the moment.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I wasn't clear. Adekanye is another player who thinks he should be starting for the first team.}

2.) 02 Feb 2019 08:14:19
Ahh with you! Mean he has had a few good games but has lacked the consistency to be getting into the first team squad!

{Ed002's Note - There is a significant issue with young players wanting, and in some cases, demanding first team football.}

3.) 02 Feb 2019 13:47:39
Specifically Liverpool or generally?

I think Media hype means youth players see themselves as superstars already rather than having to keep your head down and work hard for the opportunity.

G'day Ed002. So did anything dramatic happen while we were sleeping? Dybala, Insigne and Werner all got red shirts nailed on, yeah?

Jurgen Meister

1.) 14 Jun 2019 10:10:36
All of them and more mate. Marquee signing by lunchtime. EXCITING TIMES MATE!

2.) 14 Jun 2019 14:25:14
Red shirts nailed on? Sounds painful.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 16:04:59
Simao nailed on.



12 Jun 2019 11:36:48
Reading Milan want Lovren, is it true Ed? Or anyone else?
Thanks in advance.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

1.) 12 Jun 2019 12:12:43
Heard the club won't stand in his way if he wants to leave but won't accept less than £25mil.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 13:00:18
25 is a bargain for milan. I don't think we should let him go and i don't think it'll happen anway. We would then need to sign a new cb. You need 4, especially when two of them are injury prone.

Madrid turned down erikson apparently, going for pogba instead. What are they thinking if this is true? One is a show pony, the other is a genuine class player.

I highly doubt it would happen but do the eds and reds think he would be good for us? I actually think he could be the missing link. Prem experience, playmaker, goals from out side the box, scores big goals. Good lad who works hard. Id take him over fekir all day.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 13:51:30
We should let him go and get Dael Fry in. We may as well have someone that's improving as a player in the back up role.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 16:32:50
We could either promote Hoever to fourth choice or buy the Portuguese lad the 20 year old Ruben Garcia or something like that anyway. Forget De Ligt it isn’t happening.



07 Jun 2019 13:29:14
Just looking at the UEFA Coefficient for European club rankings. The clubs that got the most points for the season just finished are:
Barcelona 30
Chelsea 30
Liverpool 29
Ajax 27
Arsenal 26
Spurs 26
Man City 25
Porto 23
Juve 21
Atletico 20
Bayern 20

Now I openly admit that I've no clue how exactly this is calculated, but it seems baffling to me (just for starters) that Chelsea got more than Liverpool despite winning the lesser competition and finishing behind us in the league. Please can any of you Mighty Eds explain why, how, who and whaaaaa?
much thanks as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea won four more games than Liverpool.}

1.) 07 Jun 2019 14:15:06
Is it measured on just European games or are domestic competitions included?

{Ed002's Note - It is the UEFA rankings.}

2.) 07 Jun 2019 14:30:15
Does it still cover multiple years worth of participation when working out the coefficient, or is it just based on the prior season's European comps, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - It covers 5 years.}

3.) 07 Jun 2019 14:48:02
Thanks Ed002. I think you said that we would be in pot 1 now that we have won the comp? Would’ve been Pot 2 otherwise given we weren’t in it for some of those 5 years?

{Ed002's Note - Pot 1 yes.}

4.) 07 Jun 2019 17:39:29
Oh right, thanks ED002. But I would've thought winning CL games would be worth more than EL games, no?

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is a difference but as I said, Chelsea performed a great deal better than Liverpool.}

5.) 07 Jun 2019 20:47:41
We was in Pot 3 and won it 😂 It means nothing. They should put us in pot 5 on our own because we have an unfair advantage having VVD. It's like we've got Terminator in defence.



02 Jun 2019 13:14:46
Good morning (afternoon) all you Eds and Reds. All I want to say while enjoying my favourite hangover since 2005 is: Yep, that'll do. YNWA! :)

Jurgen Meister



21 May 2019 10:35:23
Reading we're apparently interested in signing Max Kruse on a free to replace Sturridge. Would be handy as a backup striker but not if his wage is £100,000 per week. Origi and Brewster will do for me.
Actually, Ed002 may know but this rumour reeks of an agent trying to drum up interest in his client.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 21 May 2019 11:05:11
I think we can conclude this is a non starter.

Unless we are selling Brewster.

2.) 21 May 2019 11:35:17
Kruse might actually be a handy Lallana replacementmore than he is a Sturridge replacement. He can play on either wing, in attacking midfield, as a striker, or as a false 9. He's a very versatile attacking player. He's more of a creative player than he is a goal scorer.

At 31 though he's a bit of a short term solution. I would've thought Klopp would fancy someone younger like Brandt, Fekir, Draxler or Fernandes.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think anyone would consider Kruse to be a winger.}

3.) 21 May 2019 12:47:39
Not much of an upgrade and at his age I'd rather just give Wilson a chance.

4.) 21 May 2019 13:14:42
Lol come on, this is never going to happen.

5.) 21 May 2019 13:37:58
if we don't buy right this summer, we will remain a competitive team . . . never winners.

6.) 21 May 2019 13:50:26
Definitely not a winger Ed002 but he has played across a front 3 throughout his career as a wide forward. Less so as he's got older to be fair. His best games last year mostly came from the attacking midfield position.

I still think it's just lazy journalism. German player out of contract. Klopp must be interested 🙄 I think Klopp will want someone younger.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps I was misled by you saying "he can play on either wing".}

7.) 21 May 2019 16:48:02
Sounds like shades of Rickie Lambert to me. We've gone past those days.

8.) 21 May 2019 17:52:33
What shade of Lambert would be your choice, Ra?! I’d go with ‘Lilac Lambert’ personally 🧐.

9.) 21 May 2019 18:09:58
MK, he might have played across the front three but he's not in anyway similar to any of our front three. The wide players use their pace to get central and our no.9 drops deep to allow them space.

I can't see Kruse fulfilling either of those roles as effectively as we'd need him to.

10.) 21 May 2019 18:38:05
Max Kruse is a non starter, IMO. We need WAY better than him.

11.) 21 May 2019 18:41:02
I never said he would be good in the Salah/ Mane positions. I pointed out the positions he can and has played in. I never advocated him for those roles in our team.

All I was saying was that he'd be more of a Lallana replacement than a Sturridge replacement based on how he plays. When does Lallana play in our front 3? Kruse plays mostly as an attacking midfielder or as a false 9. He's not an out and out goal scorer like Sturridge is supposed to be.

I don't know what else to say. It'll just attract abuse as always.

12.) 21 May 2019 19:38:16
Zed, how can you even think of asking? The obvious shade is Red. 😝

MKS, Chill. Don't let it get under your skin.

13.) 21 May 2019 23:39:32
They're just giving their opinion Adam, i don't see it as abuse. I agree on one thing though, almost certainly just the German link driving rumours, the only 30+ player i expect us to sign will be a backup goalie if migs legs.

14.) 22 May 2019 10:06:56
Parker, you clearly missed the comment that was deleted. All i'll say is It was an opinion on me personally rather than on my opinions.

15.) 22 May 2019 10:57:05
You should not take things to heart MK. This is a banter site so lighten up.

Banter goes both ways. Some people give it and are happy and some take it and are unhappy. its all depending on the opinion of those involved.

The comment wasn't a personal attack. It merely stated you always seem to have an opinion on whatever player is mentioned, tells us what their position is and where they have played and quite a lot of the time you are incorrect.

Then depending on what one of the Eds say you then change your opinion back.

16.) 22 May 2019 13:53:39
You clearly haven't read mk's posts for very long moggsy. It's his opinion, leave him to it, what's the issue here? Agree or disagree fine, but I did see the deleted comment and it was out of order.

17.) 22 May 2019 16:25:03
Moggsy please just leave me alone. There are hundreds of posters on here. I'm sure you can entertain yourself without needing to interact with me. You know full well it was a personal attack and I'm really not in the mood to tolerate keyboard warriors.

A good homegrown option as backup imo, who won't cost much or expect to start games, yet has the potential to become very good. If our medical team can get Sturridge fit they can get anyone fit!

Lewis is going to go out on loan, he's got a lot to prove so a season in the lower leagues should show whether he's got enough potential for the top or not.

Have the Eds any tid-bits on clubs interested in loaning Liverpool players? The limit has been reduced, right? How many allowed now?
Thanks Eds!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - It depends where they are loaned to. I have answered this before.}

Is anyone actually remotely interested in signing that vile twit Neymar this summer? I'd be very surprised. Injuries, tax fraud, rape allegations and the smarmy head on him, surely no club wants to take on all that crap?

To be fair, 50,000 people showed up for Hazard's unveiling. More than they got for some home games. So he did get a good welcome, they just want Mbappe as well. Those two either side of Jovic? Tasty.

Yeah. Only they could spend over €300m on 5 new players and still want more. What are the chances they get Mbappe as well? And Pogba? Can they really spend more than half a billion in one window? Madness.
