So I don't get overly excited can you please conifrm that we haven't got any interest in Thomas Muller Eds?



{Ed025's Note - i cant im afraid nick..

1.) 19 Jul 2017 13:02:53
Really😳 I'd be happy with that.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 13:08:05
I don't hate the idea of Muller in a Liverpool shirt. However l do hate the idea of a possible outgoing as a result of the incoming.

3.) 19 Jul 2017 13:25:29
Where would he play mate?

4.) 19 Jul 2017 13:27:28
Thanks Ed25. It doesn't seem like us to go for that sort of high profile player.

{Ed025's Note - you think...i would say keita and VVD would be classed as high profile mate..

5.) 19 Jul 2017 13:46:02
Yeah but look how we messed up the vvd deal.

6.) 19 Jul 2017 14:04:26
Naby: He would play as a CF but working more in the midfield.
He isn't one of the fastest players but also does a good job as a RW.

He could be the "20 goals a season" striker everybody wants but i don't think there is too much to it. Casual name dropping because we 1. haven't spent that much, 2. missed out on keita and have a lot of money to spend, 3. Müller "unhappy" at bayern because he didn't play that much last season and probally won't play that much the next because of James.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 14:27:21
He scored 5 last season and was benched for a proper out and out striker at Bayern. He will add more confusion to the already False 9 we have atm. He is like Firmino and you don't need two Firmino in a team!

8.) 19 Jul 2017 15:08:15
Also Bayern have brought in hamez Rodriguez so pushes him more out of favour.
Top level experience, maybe a similar case to Lucas but this time we may be the recipient of such experienced player.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 15:12:44
I don't know where the Muller thing came from and doubts if there is anything in it; But if its true then he will make a good addition, he is different to any of the players we have and we need someone like him, he stays in the box and a good header of the ball . leave the creativity to Firmino and Couts and Muller just taps them in.

10.) 19 Jul 2017 13:53:34
But there not happening ed.

Like at all. It's all bull. Rb ain't selling and where not going back on our embarrassing statement to saints.

Time we moved on I think.

11.) 19 Jul 2017 17:35:05
Roy: there is actually a term now for how Muller plays or how he scores goals. It is called "Reingemüllert" which roughly translates to "Müllert in" and means somehow without knowing how you score a goal looking like you still don't know how you ended up as a pro player.

Müller is a Top lad on and of the pitch and will definitely boost our squad. Is it likely he will move? Id give it a solid 5% because you he is the most bavaria-like person there is and probally the last one left at Munich.

12.) 19 Jul 2017 22:34:19
first post for me. from Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Canada.

just curious why they are even considering muller? the team needs a true keeper, backs and midfield. not more attack! or am I completely wrong here?



11 Jul 2017 15:48:43
Afternoon Ed1, can I just ask if we have actually agreed a fee for Ox and offered him a deal? If so, why hasn't he signed yet? Is he waiting to see if Arsenal offer him a new deal first?



{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 11 Jul 2017 16:03:20
Thanks. Do you expect a bid?

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on if he agrees a new contract with Arsenal or not.}

2.) 11 Jul 2017 17:12:59
Ed do you still expect a deal to be done mate, as you suggested a while back?

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps.}

3.) 12 Jul 2017 15:46:33
I hope he signs. He is technically brilliant and I can really see him doing well here.



02 Jul 2017 10:17:16
Morning Ed1,

Recently one of the Eds mentioned we had been monitoring Nastasic. I was wondering if he might still be an option?



{Ed001's Note - there has been no move towards getting him at all, so it doesn't seem likely to happen.}

1.) 02 Jul 2017 19:38:58
Thanks for the reply Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}



15 Jun 2017 07:44:46
Ed1, is there any indication whether we're getting a ban yet? Everything seems to be on hold whilst we wait.



{Ed002's Note - I am not going to bother him with this. No ban will happen without an investigation, a charge and a hearing. Right now, the Premier League asked for Liverpool to provide further information and aside from an apology about initially lying to the FA again, is where we are. A ban will not come out of nowhere - that is not how the process works. Move on there is no charge at this time - but perhaps there will be - but there will not be any announcement of a ban.}

1.) 15 Jun 2017 07:55:55
Thank you for your reply Ed. So any delay over transfers is down to the club then.

It seems like the wind has been blown out of our sales somewhat.

{Ed002's Note - You do appreciate that the transfer window is not open Nick?}

2.) 15 Jun 2017 08:05:59
Sorry, yes Ed I know but at one point two weeks ago it sounded like we were on the verge of signing vvd and Salah. Now it seems like nothing is happening.

But as you say, I should appreciate the fact that there is lots of summer left for transfers.

{Ed002's Note - I understand that folk came out and said "done deal" and I stood back from commenting. There is little point in me explaining any more after everything that has been said. I am sure there will be many, many marquee signings conformed by the club before the transfer window opens.}

3.) 15 Jun 2017 08:15:00
Yes you're right. Sorry Ed, although I can assure you I'm not looking for any 'marquee' signings, just good players joining the club.

{Ed002's Note - I expect Liverpool to add a number of players to improve the squad this summer - but it doesn't need to be before the window has opened Nick.}

4.) 15 Jun 2017 08:22:08
Thanks for all your time and all your replies ed2. You're very good to us reds fans.

{Ed002's Note - If they are good questions Nick they are worth answering.}

5.) 15 Jun 2017 08:38:19
Hi ed02, sorry to bother you. How come clubs can confirm they've signed a player and share pictures of him signing his contract in their teams shirt before the window has opened? Lindelof and tolisso for example. Is this just a sort of pre contract agreement but the transfer will not go through until July? Sorry if it's been asked before.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of what has happened with Manchester United showing picture of Lindelof - but again, the international transfer window open July 1. Agreements can be reached but transferser not registered.}

6.) 15 Jun 2017 09:57:36
You can sign a player at any time, it is simply an agreement between clubs to end one contract and start another.
You can only register a player as your player from July 1st or January 1st.
What I suspect is happening is clubs are agreeing the terms of a transfer which will go through on July 1st, but the transferring club is happy for the player to ceremonially sign a contract in front of the media and wear a club shirt.

7.) 15 Jun 2017 10:44:23
Oh and by the way,

Do you know if we are getting a ban or not? it's just no one has asked it the last 10 minutes and I think everyone might be getting worried something has changed in the last 10 minutes and we do not know about it.


8.) 15 Jun 2017 11:33:13
Cheers Ron and ed02 👍🏼.



16 Jul 2016 16:40:15
Ed2, I apologise if this has been answered, I did look but couldn't see an answer:

Zielinski has apparently made up his mind. Does that mean he's off to Napoli and not Liverpool?



{Ed002's Note - The player wants to play for Liverpool but Liverpool don't want to pay for him so Milan is his other option.}

1.) 16 Jul 2016 16:54:13
Thanks for the quick reply Ed, much appreciated.

2.) 16 Jul 2016 21:09:18
How far apart are we and his club?

{Ed002's Note - Not too much but Udinese don't want to negotiate with Liverpool.}

3.) 16 Jul 2016 23:28:40
Sly saying he's had talks with Udinese could this mean he's asked them to negotiate with us and sorted something out? Only time will tell I suppose.

4.) 17 Jul 2016 09:37:06
Heya ed002, any idea if udinese have any desire to lay a complaint against lfc for allegedly tapping up zielinski? Or are these things sometimes sorted hetween clubs behind closed dooors?

{Ed002's Note - I am sure they are not looking to complain. The last time Liverpool were caught a grovelling Ian Ayre apology and a tail of slime were enough to stop any action.}

5.) 17 Jul 2016 10:03:37
Ah k thanks for reply. In some ways it would seem a shame that there be no formal action, even if it would be against us.

{Ed002's Note - The expectation is that Liverpool and Klopp would behave in a respectful manner toward other sides. They don't - and everybody knows that.}

6.) 17 Jul 2016 10:56:39
Cheers ed.

Morning all,

Just a thought but what if we rejected all of Barca's advances towards Couts and ended up keeping him and Can, but not signing Keita. Would we be worse? No.
Would we be better? Not necessarily, but imagine a whole season with the Can of February to May and a fit Henderson, Lallana, Coutinho and Mane (and no ACON) .

I understand that it's exciting signing new players but there's a difference between signing a winger in Salah (to free Coutinho to play through the middle) or an actual LB than there is adding to an already overcrowded midfield.

We need to accept that whilst NB may well be a fantastic footballer, he's not Messi or Ronaldo.

Sorry for the long post. (ps I accidentally posted half of this before I had finished so apologies if there's half of this floating about.


1.) 24 Jul 2017 07:43:18
Rednick my. Thoughts exactly well put.

2.) 24 Jul 2017 08:44:53
Spot on, OP. I would keep Couts and Can if it meant kicking the whole Keita hooplah into the stands. I would rather have those players who've been here thru thick and thin, under Klopp's system esp. Couts who is now our offensive and creative engine, than some player unknown and unproven whose parent club have repeatedly said is not for sale.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 08:45:57
If we keep Coutinho and Can, and add the signings of Salah and Robertson, then we are unquestionably a better team. If we add VVD then we are far better. If we had signed Keita, then selling Can would almost have been a necessity.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 10:26:24
Completely agree with the original post, we're well stocked in midfield with players who are improving, Keita is a luxury signing and certainly not a necessity.

5.) 24 Jul 2017 10:25:06
I don't think the transfers are related. If we pull out of the Kieta deal I don't see Barcelona and Juve then pulling out of theirs because of it. We could end up worst case losing the players and not getting Kieta.

6.) 24 Jul 2017 11:23:59
If we'd got NK, I think Can would have gone. Now all eyes on Cans' contract as we definitely need him now. Consistently fit Can/ Hendo midfield is pretty damn good. (And don't forget Marko coming good.

7.) 24 Jul 2017 12:03:20
I think we'll be ok even if Can went.
We have Ejaria and Grujic not getting a look-in and Milner can also cover CM.

18 Jul 2017 16:43:23
Evening Eds. Sky are reporting that Robertson has flown home from Hull's training camp to meet with representatives from Liverpool. Is this correct?



{Ed025's Note - apparently so nick..

1.) 18 Jul 2017 17:22:19
Thanks Ed25.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 17:38:31
Haven't been this excited since we signed Klavan.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 19:47:27
I'd say your a bundle of joy Reaper.

4.) 18 Jul 2017 22:27:06
Surely he should have met with our reps before he flew out, something's gone wrong with this one.



16 Jul 2017 08:31:28
Ed1, you mentioned yesterday that you are worried our transfer activities are leading to the eventual sale of Coutinho. I just wanted to ask if any clubs are actively chasing him right now?

Also, without mentioning any actual figures, do you think that based on the apparent value of certain players this year we'd be looking for a world record fee?



{Ed001's Note - yes, we know both PSG and Barca want him, no idea about a fee.}

1.) 16 Jul 2017 10:16:26
You don't think Klopp wants to sell him do you?



11 Jul 2017 13:42:13
Ed2, I was listening to the radio yesterday and apparently a company has done a report that highlights how many premier league clubs are massively over-reliant on broadcasting money and that they could be in for a shock the next time it needs to be renegotiated as Sky and BT have both stated that they may not be able to pay what they have before.

I was wondering if you knew whether this was true and how much it would impact the clubs in the league?

Not strictly Lfc related but I'd be really appreciative of any answer.



{Ed002's Note - It would be based on what percentage of the club's income comes from broadcasting monies compared to the two other primary sources of income, matchday and sponsorship. It is of course not quite as simple as that as some clubs also have significant debt to service and some have much higher expenses - wages, work on stadia, etc.. If it were negotiated down the only obvious impact would be that clubs would not be able to afford the very expensive players. It would simply return to where it was last year or the year before.}

1.) 11 Jul 2017 15:27:48
Thanks for the reply Ed.

Epic, if a loan deal had just been agreed why would we risk playing him? What if he got injured? That's what I was getting at.

Good one ed. that's auto-correct at play. I meant your gut feeling over Keita signing?


{Ed001's Note - my gut feeling is that I probably should not have eaten so much spicey food last night. I don't have one about Keita one way or the other to be honest. I know he wants to join and we want him, but I also know RBL are not in the slightest bit ready to sell.}

Ed, I know you're probably sick of hearing the name Keith but please would you give me your gut feeling in this: come the end of the transfer window do you see him at Liverpool?


{Ed001's Note - well Penelope does like her seat in the Kop, so she could well be there.}

Thanks Ed1. That's a shame. I think he'd probably have forced himself into the first team with his performances over the last few months.


{Ed001's Note - me too.}

Has Klopp refused to give him assurances over game time then Ed1?
Also, is there a plan B to Keita because it's seems apparent that he's not coming.
Thanks Ed1.


{Ed001's Note - last season showed him that he is not first choice.}

Ed1, why are players so greedy about that 5%? They're all on so much anyway what does it matter?
