Afternoon ed2, I have a question re the players mentioned in the sharks pod if you don't mind?
Would it be safe to assume that if no more than Can and Coutinho leave (and we do end up with Gomes) we're only going to sign one of Meyer, Lamar, Brandt and Draxler (assuming we manage to get any of them)?


{Ed002's Note - I can’t make assumptions like that. Liverpool will look to get rid of Markovic in January for reasons I explained.}

1.) 17 Nov 2017 21:58:51
OK, thanks for answering Ed.



07 Nov 2017 09:13:44
Morning Ed1, you mentioned recently that Klopp wants vvd but the club is also looking at alternatives. Out of interest, how many cb's do you think we'd want? And how many are we looking to move on?



{Ed001's Note - we only want to get one in January mate, not offload any, just bring one in.}

1.) 07 Nov 2017 09:36:09
OK thanks mate. Do you think Klopp would be on board with getting alternatives or is he still set on getting vvd?

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on if the scouting team can produce a reasonable option or not.}

2.) 07 Nov 2017 10:09:08
Any news on Danny Ings leaving? It needs to happen. hed do a good job at Newcastle, Bournemouth someone like that. he's not going to get a sniff at liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - A number of clubs are keen on taking him on loan.}

3.) 07 Nov 2017 13:27:05
Hope it’s Huddersfield - they need a goal scorer and he could do some damage to our competition!

4.) 07 Nov 2017 14:58:57
I hope Ings goes on loan to Newcastle. I think he'd be the perfect forward on the shoulder to chase down every single ball played in behind by Shelvey. He'll even go after lost causes. Newcastle are in dire need of a striker and I'd love to help Rafa out as well. I think it's a good fit for all parties.

5.) 08 Nov 2017 10:42:40
Would love to see us make an attempt to get Gimenez from Atletico. Do we have any more information on his contract situation at Madrid? I think adding that little bit of South American snide/ street smart would really make a difference to our attitude to defending.

{Ed002's Note - His contract has not been agreed and clubs are speaking to Atletico. He is not one of the centre backs Liverpool has enquired after and I would put him out of your mind.}

6.) 08 Nov 2017 11:20:10
Ed spot on info as usual mate. Am ai right in assuming De Vrij and Howedes are 2 that we have enquired about?

{Ed002's Note - Not really. De Vrij and Schuurs but Benedikt Howedes becomes viable if Juventus don't take up their option - and they could potentially let him go in January if all parties were to agree as they are looking to a replacement (although they are looking at a pre-contract in January but could be forced in to a purchase).

7.) 08 Nov 2017 14:08:43
Cheers ed

I like the look of Upamecano from Rbl but I think no interest at this stage.

Schuurs was with us on loan if I remember and impressed at U18 level. He is one for the futre no doubt?

I guess a lot can change between now and January as regards to who us available.

{Ed002's Note - January is not a good time to plan to buy.}



24 Oct 2017 16:39:35
Hi Ed1, have you heard anything from your sources that suggest Klopp is likely to shake up the team or formation this week? Something needs to change.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - nothing yet mate, but I never ask about teams etc as I was asked not to mention stuff like that on the site by the club a few years back. If I don't know I can't let something slip!}

1.) 24 Oct 2017 17:58:37
I think we should change formation to 5-3-2 personally and try TAA and Moreno as wing backs with cb's of Gomez, Lovren and Matip. Then play Henderson, Wijnaldum and Couts deep with Firmino and Sturridge (or Solanke) up top.

It couldn't be worse than the 2-6-3 we currently play.

Also, I hope Ward gets the start this weekend but I'm not holding my breath. I like Klopp but he seems stubborn.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 19:26:38

3.) 24 Oct 2017 20:36:04
Lovren and Klavan should be nowhere near the starting 11 ever again.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 21:19:51
Lovren? really? Yeah solve our defensive problem by having more of our crap defenders on the pitch at the same time! Funny :)

5.) 25 Oct 2017 00:39:11
We can't play 3 at back cos we only have 4 centre backs with one of them Gomez is stand in right back also one injury an we are badly exposed we would have too play klavan if any injuries, or Can as a emergency centre back, perfectly illustrating wasted summer transfer window.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 07:06:17
We don't have the quality at CB to play 3. Give karius a run in the team with ward as back up 5 games then throw ward in if no improvement.

Get Milner in at LB or as DM.

7.) 25 Oct 2017 07:50:23
Karius or ward
can Henderson
Coutinho salah
Firmino Sturridge.

8.) 25 Oct 2017 09:16:26
Matip Can Gomez
Trent. Robertson

Wiji. Couts

Salah. Firmino.

9.) 25 Oct 2017 10:29:15
Haha no Salah rednick
Up the pool.

10.) 25 Oct 2017 11:55:41
Milner Gomez matip Moreno
Henderson grujic
Salah sturridge coutihno.

11.) 25 Oct 2017 12:10:53
I think they should employ the 343 and give that a try

Ward/ Karius

Matip/ Gomez/ Lovren (sadly because we have no one else but if I could, I think he needs away from the team after last performance, give him a reason to improve)

TAA/ hendo/ can/ coutinho

Ox/ bobby/ salah

Another possibility would be to try and take matip off too. He knows he is guaranteed starter right now, so isn’t playing as hard as he can. Because he knows he on the team sheet, so just isn’t trying that hard.
I would also chuck ox in to give him a run in a position he wants and try and build up his confidence within the team. Also to give him some gametime. The boy needs it and can atleast play the role abit better among this team. Have Coutinho higher up recently. He is getting confused since he is used to dropping deeper and playing more in the middle/ left and having him up top right now isn’t helping since he is getting used to the more central role. Which is really suiting him. This then allows ox and salah to play further up more and have a little more fluidity up top. And Coutinho actually can drop back when needed. Having the three at the back should help control the game. Allow can to drop more central which allows Lovren abit wider. TAA can cover back is well where hendo can drop deep and Gomez/ matip can cover the wide gaps of any open up.
With the pace we have up top, the team can play counter attack very nice and quick football while still have a defence of 5/ 6 players.

12.) 25 Oct 2017 13:24:36
My team for the Huddersfield match would be:

GK-Loris Karius
RB-Trent Alexander
CB-Joe Gomez
CB-Joel Matip
LB-Alberto Moreno
DM-Emre Can
DM-Jordan Henderson
RM-Oxlade Chamberlain
LM-Philippe Coutinho
FW-Roberto Firmino
FW-Mohamed Salah

Basically a 4-4-2, Mohamed Salah's movement off the ball is fantastic and his first touch and flair are great for a player with that kind of pace, meaning Firmino can be the 2nd striker which i think is his perfect role. But i doubt it, we will probably see Mignolet in the line up, 3 in midfield and if we are going to change something it will probably be the finished Sturridge upfront. (I used to love Sturridge but not i rather see Solanke getting his minutes)

13.) 25 Oct 2017 13:37:13
Play Salah up top with Firmino then as he's played there with previous clubs. Sometimes sticking all your attackers on at once isn't the answer.

Saying stupid things like we should never play Lovren and Klavan again when they make up 50% of our centre backs doesn't help anything though. Poor Klavan didn't even play against Spurs.

Maybe blame a manager who decided to tap up his main cb target and was then too arrogant to try and go for any other targets? No, blame the two cb's who play for us because it's their fault they weren't replaced.

And the guy calling for Milner? Give me a break. He's lost a yard of pace this summer and he only had half a yard to begin with. He has the turning circle of a cruise liner.

And yeah, my bad I forgot Salah at first but his goals aren't exclusively winning us games.

Maybe if we had tried something different against Spurs we wouldn't have lost 4-1. Then again none of you would have anything to moan about then.

14.) 25 Oct 2017 15:02:34
Milner - Gomez - Matip - Moreno
Hendo - Can
Salah - Firmino - Coutinho

We should have a reasonable amount of possession so let Hendo and Can sit deeper to direct the play, and to ensure we have protection for the CBs against the counter attack

Let the fullbacks get forward if there’s space and to provide an overlap to Salah or Coutinho if they cut inside, and to put in decent crosses from out wide

Play Solanke in the box so we have a decent aerial threat and so Huddersfield can’t just pack the defence narrow, and/ or for Firmino/ Coutinho/ Salah to play off as he’s good at hold up play.

15.) 25 Oct 2017 21:41:36

16.) 26 Oct 2017 07:09:55
Thing is, all those saying Lovren, Klavan etc shouldn't be anywhere near the team, should we just put a shirt down on the pitch? It is currently irrelevant what we should have done, we have who we have and selection needs to come from them. You can't field a team based on names we should have signed in August.



30 Aug 2017 15:31:20
Ed1, the English press is saying we're giving up on Lemar and focussing solely on AOC now. Is that correct in your opinion?

Or are the deals irrespective of each other?

Thanks mate.


{Ed001's Note - it is bull. They are not related, the Lemar issue hinges on agreeing a fee with Monaco, nothing to do with Ox.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 15:41:05
Are the teams far apart on the fee or do you expect it to be sorted?

{Ed001's Note - no idea on the fee, but Klopp wants him and we have seen with Keita the club will pull out all the stops to do a deal when Klopp wants someone.}

2.) 30 Aug 2017 15:43:43
Thanks ed. Do you, in your opinion, think we'll pay what is required? It's a no brainier to me if it means we can sell Coutinho.

{Ed001's Note - I believe the club will back Klopp in whatever he decides, so it depends on how highly he values Lemar. I would say they will but this is LFC and that means it will no doubt be a letdown on deadline day!}

3.) 30 Aug 2017 15:44:56
It ia being reportes that Lemar deal has nothing to do with money but lack of time to get it done before France play tomorrow. Is this valid? From all i ve been reading today we will get only Ox. don't see Lemar or VVD coming based on todays action.

{Ed001's Note - there is plenty of time to get it done.}

4.) 30 Aug 2017 15:45:12
ED is right. We need both, for Depth. Apart from Can, Gini and hendo, who else with experience we have in Midfield? Grujic is not yet the finish article. so Lemar, OX, would be great addition. Remember. We have PL, Champions, FA CUP, the other Cup. so we have 4 tournaments.
This squad is one of the best in the last 10 - 15 years. and maybe, the Best squad in the Premier League, yes, far better than Mancs.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 15:45:17
Is there a backup plan for Lemar Ed001? They seem to be asking for too much and I think we will walk away. Mahrez maybe? Just cannot see a way back for Coutinho now and letting him go with only OX coming in makes our squad significantly weaker.

{Ed001's Note - no, Lemar is a back up plan for Couts remember.}

6.) 30 Aug 2017 15:47:42
Cheers ed. I asked same thing mate. Youve answered now. I think we are all fearing the same thing in ending up with Ox an not Lemar.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 15:49:19
Ed001 I have been wanting your words on this topic the whole day. So do you believe we are stil negotiating for Lemar or is a deal completely off? Did officials even go to france?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe it is dead, I have no idea about where our officials are though.}

8.) 30 Aug 2017 15:53:38
What's the situation with center half? Tuesday came an went!

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what Tuesday has to do with anything.}

9.) 30 Aug 2017 15:55:07
Hi Eds, is there a medical for Ox scheduled today?

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

10.) 30 Aug 2017 15:57:49
Thanks Ed001. Your a real gem.

{Ed001's Note - if Pearce is stating LFC officials are in Monaco to do a deal, then he will have been briefed by the club to say that. I can't see why they would want him saying that if they are not there.}

11.) 30 Aug 2017 16:44:12
Ed are Barcelona also after Lemar now mate?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona has spoken to Monaco in the past about Lemar.}

12.) 30 Aug 2017 17:01:48
But nothing recent like this week? Cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that Monaco are not keen to sell the player.}

13.) 30 Aug 2017 17:51:33
Aside from everything else.
Why are teams just being tit heads with us.

Baka 40 mil
Mandy 40 mil
Silva (the better player) 60 mil

Fair enough with mbappe but he is a future ballon winner.

Yet We bid 66 mil and can't get it done. Oh and they have already have his replacement in keita.

Shame as would of loved him but if we're keeping cou then sall good.

14.) 30 Aug 2017 18:01:50
End of the day the keita deal means every single mess up has now been forgiven. We handled that like champs, ruthless. Got ou5 man. Back our manager.

I have every confidence the time when we turned away transfers over a 2 mil difference are long gone.

I think where in the final stages of the Lemar deal which will give cou enough time to sort his Barcelona move out.

It will be done.



11 Aug 2017 11:08:09
Morning Ed2, hope you're well?

Is there any further update regarding the Ox Ed?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are still interested in taking the player.}

1.) 11 Aug 2017 13:46:29
Hopefully Chelsea will offer stupid money for him.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 15:18:47
Out of interest Frankly, have you ever responded positively to anything the club has ever done?

Every post you put on here is so negative.

15 Apr 2018 11:54:16
Ed1, a question if you're around. What has been the most pleasant surprise for you this season: The Ox turning into a real player before our eyes or Milner rolling back the years? What do you think has contributed to them being so effective. Is it Klopp's coaching?


{Ed001's Note - the Ox has been the better one for me, simply because it was a big gamble to pay so much for a player in his final year of contract.

As for the effectiveness, it is coaching, having set, simple tactics they can understand and work with, as well as the basic of playing to their strengths. If you ask a player to do something they can't do, they will look terrible no matter how good they actually are. Klopp tries to suit the tactics and the player together.}

1.) 15 Apr 2018 12:26:09
Also, being stuck under Wenger for so many years he can't have learnt much when he needed it most, in recent years, how many players has Wenger actually improved? Walcott, Ox, Wilshere, bellerin, chambers all supposed to be the next big thing, but none have pushed on since being teenagers.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 13:11:56
Spot on, Ed. Coaching matters, end of. An NFL coach once said, "Instead of trying to fix your weaknesses firstly, get better at your strengths then, your weaknesses will become easier to fix". It's that simple.

3.) 15 Apr 2018 13:41:22
Thanks for the reply Ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome RN.}

4.) 15 Apr 2018 14:17:24
Well let's not give all the credit to coaching, the two players have also put in huge efforts to improve and should also be highly commended.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 16:11:49
Mcgoveb make that 3 players mate. I'd count Roberston in there as well.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry but if we are going to give credit to players for trying then we may as well all give up. That is the absolute least we should expect of them.}

6.) 15 Apr 2018 19:12:44
It makes you wonder if Wenger has held back Wilshire? Would he be worth a punt on a free? I know he has injury issues and he’s lost his way the last few seasons (although in half decent form this year) but these were similar things aimed at ox when we signed him.

{Ed001's Note - Wilshere is nothing like Ox, he is not even half as good a player as Ox was.}



31 Jan 2018 21:47:27
Did it happen Ed1?


{Ed001's Note - you will have to narrow 'it' down a bit for me.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 21:54:54

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I don't believe it has.}

{Ed001's Note - yes I do mate.}

5.) 31 Jan 2018 22:04:53
Nevermind thanks for update Ed. Great work by all the eds this window. Appreciate your work. One to the next game.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate, still a good night for LFC even without signings.}

6.) 31 Jan 2018 22:05:27
100% ed, or still possible mate? Take it they don't want to sell?

{Ed001's Note - they were happy to move him on.}

7.) 31 Jan 2018 22:10:21
Almost 4 AM in india, office at 9 Am, deadline day got to me i guess.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 22:21:11
Ok ed. Figures involved then I guess. Bit gutted mate tbh after raised hope. Should I call it a night🤔.

{Ed001's Note - the figures might not have been those of his team that were too much mate. It is not always about fees, wages are very often the main cause of deals not happening.}

9.) 31 Jan 2018 22:32:52
If we get an offer sheet in by 11 we get until 1am to complete the deal apparently so don't give up hope reds. ynwa.

10.) 31 Jan 2018 22:33:38
I’m still hoping we’ll get it done, his agents were in England today.

11.) 31 Jan 2018 22:38:11
Ok mate fair enough. Thank you for all your work and info ed. Appreciate it. Off to my pit mate. GN.

{Ed001's Note - night mate.}



25 Jan 2018 08:11:59
Morning Ed1, hope you're well?

Just wondering if you think we'll have any more signings this month?
I'm guessing Klopp is sticking to his main targets which means January may be a no-go but whilst I don't like the idea of knee-jerk reactions I'm worried to see other teams strengthening.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - I think we are out of luck as we wasted too much time trying to get the big name in. Unless that situation changes, I think we are done, sadly.}

1.) 25 Jan 2018 08:19:43
Just as I feared. Waste time chasing griezmann was never going to happen. Appreciate your outlook ed01.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 08:44:11
Wasting time on griezmann? Now I've heard it all.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 08:57:45
It it a waste of time chasing him, he's never going to join us.

4.) 25 Jan 2018 09:21:20
I think ed is refering to Lemar?

5.) 25 Jan 2018 09:29:47
Robson will be the new number 10 😂.

6.) 25 Jan 2018 10:12:23
Who said we were chasing Griezmann?

7.) 25 Jan 2018 10:12:39
I heard Ken Aguero is still in the running to replace Coutinho. 🤣.



18 Jan 2018 08:08:48
Hi Eds,

Would Liverpool be due any compensation if Can left on a free to Juventus? Or would that only be the case if he joined another British side?



{Ed001's Note - they won't be entitled to any unless he leaves now.}



06 Jan 2018 20:30:19
Ed1, truly sorry to hear about your mate. Hope you are ok.

No, he is a fantastic player, but a terrible human. There's an article in the express that states that Klopp is confident of signing him.

I hope not.

What bothers me most is that they are allowed to advertise their own betting company which means there must be a conflict of interest when they're just making up stories about player x and team y. No one seems to ever talk about it.
