According to several news outlest we have hada new 75 million euro bid rejected for Keita.
RB Leipzig owner Dietrich Mateschitz has apparently came out and said so and that no way they are selling Keita.
I believe this is the end of our pursuit (maybe Ed002 can confirm this? )
Sad if true. But we can't say the club didn't try it's best with regards to Keita. That's a lot of money for a club like ours. Of course this won't stop the incoming FSG, Klopp, Edwards, Moore what not abuse.
Hopefully we can move to our other targets.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know if it will be the end or not. Leipzig has also informed his representatives of a couple of things that they need to take heed of.}

1.) 19 Jul 2017 12:49:18
Maybe they tried but poor use of time and resources if we keep missing our first targets.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 12:46:57
Hi eds2 what are the things that they need to take heed of. If you don't mind me asking.

{Ed002's Note - Not worth the grief of explaining.}

3.) 19 Jul 2017 12:49:04
Does the couple of things include the payments structure of the fee?

{Ed002's Note - What fee?}

4.) 19 Jul 2017 13:00:37
Ed002 first time post and appreciate all the info mate! When you say RBL has informed his representatives of a couple things would this be in regards of if they tried to force a move?


{Ed002's Note - It is in respect of their stance on the player contractred to them who has been the subject of an illegal approach from another side.}

5.) 19 Jul 2017 13:01:31
What you have to ask yourself is have fsg been chasing a pipe dream just to look like they are trying, knowing full well they have no chance.

{Ed025's Note - conspiracy theories are on a different page mate..

6.) 19 Jul 2017 13:14:03
It guess it's time for klopp to stop messaging keita with Sadio's cell.

Cheers for your response Ed002.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 13:48:06
I would imagine to tell Keita's people to stop agitating for a move?

8.) 19 Jul 2017 14:38:37
especially on this website.

the fan boys were showing up as if we are signing Messi.

Can't understand why so much fuss?


9.) 19 Jul 2017 13:08:15
{Ed002's Note - I would ignore everything to do with money as it confuses. It is not a case of spending £65.21M on Keita and £71.6M on van Dijk as have already been agreed as "done deals", it is a question of when payment is due to be paid. }

I thought you said the fee can be agreed, the main issue is just the structure of the payments.

{Ed002's Note - I am struggling to see how you are struggling to get their repeated statement.}

10.) 19 Jul 2017 13:10:07
Thanks for info Ed002 only reliable source of info

11.) 19 Jul 2017 14:19:06
Yes I have read somewhere from a month ago that if Keita and his representatives keep pushing for the Liverpool move, RBL will report LFC to FIFA for tapping him up.



31 Jul 2015 14:26:47
Could you confirm if Lambert is actually moving to West Brom? Also any further developments on Balotelli to Fiorentina and Borini to Lazio?

{Ed002's Note - Lambert's move to WBA should go ahead. I explained about the others yesterday.}



24 Jun 2015 01:00:41

Know anything about the firmino links which have cropped up regarding the deal being completel? Are they true?

{Ed002's Note - It is not completed but I understand Liverpool have offered Hoffenheim considerably more than anyone else. Due to his release clause, they will be more than happy with the offer. A Chelsea representative in Chile says his agent has been there and spoken with a number of sides about the player and that Liverpool appeared to be willing to agree terms. The Napoli South American scout tells me the same.}



10 Jun 2015 15:35:30
Hi eds
Do Liverpool hold interest in Antonio Candreva? And is Skrtel looking to leave?
Thanks as always

{Ed002's Note - (a) No. (b) Not that I am aware.}



22 May 2015 18:52:13


I understand from an ex-German international that Liverpool have watched Lars Stindl on more than one occasion this season but he has decided to reject the interest of Liverpool and will move to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer

{Ed001's Note - Milner has an offer on the table from City and is considering it, but it is likely he will look around before committing to anything. He is certainly not a done or nearly done deal yet.


{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid are looking much less likely to offer a new deal to Khedira now that Silva has arrived. He is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any side outside of Spain now and AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Arsenal and Schalke 04 sre all interest. Each of these clubs has spoken with thge representatives of the player. The player's representatives have also approached Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich to guage interest as Khedira is keen to play in the Champions League next season. Chelsea and Arsenal are both concerned about the player's on going fitness. At the end of the day, if he can prove his fitness, Liverpool or Schalke would likely be the best fit for him, although don't discount Dortmund.}

Looking very very unlikely now.


Ed002's Note - Liverpool enquired about the availability of Real Madrid's Lucas Vazquez and were told Espanyol had an option as part of a buy-to-loan deal but that he would be allowed to leave this summer.}


PSG and Manchester City remain keen on the signing of Miralem Pjanic but both are constrained by UEFA sanctions and will need to sell before buying - and may well be put off by the price. PSG would be willing to include Verratti as part of the deal but Verratti is set on a move elsewhere. Liverpool and Spurs have enquired and are aware that he could be available at the right price - but that would be very high (€50M) and the player has said he has no interest in either club - whether or not that would change if the asking price and wages were matched I don't know. Manchester United also made an enquiry before appointing a new manager in the summer, but it went nowhere. Borussia Dortmund and Zenit St Petersburg seem to have dropped their interest. The player is looking for €250k per week in wages and would probably not be interested in moving to a non-Champions League club. Roma's owners have said they don't want to sell but the player is probably looking for a way out.}


{Ed002's Note - Even though he has very recently extended his contract, Inter are willing to sell Kovacic and have spoken with Arsenal, Liverpool and Hertha Berlin about the player. Nikky Vuskan has said there has not been any approach to him from any club at this time and that whilst Inter may be willing to sell the player, Kovacic wants to stay at the club. Nikky Vuksan has however said he is aware that Inter and Barcelona are having discussions about some "issues" that would involve Kovacic. To explain, Barcelona are plotting a deal that will see Alex Song and/or Pedro Rodrigues move to Inter on loan until January and then will be part of a permanent deal for Kovacic.

I am not going to go in to too much detail but Piero Ausilio, Inter's Sporting Director, told a Spanish journalist that Liverpool had made a "funny little joke" with a €10M offer.}


{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid will look for a significant fee for Asier Illarramendi who is of interest to Real Sociedad and Napoli, in addition to Arsenal and in particular Athletic Bilbao who were negotiating a January transfer. Will almost certainly move in the summer. I understand Inter Milan and AC Milan dropped what interest they had after being told that the player would look for a return to the Basque country if he leaves.


Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid have approached Lazio about taking Filipe Anderson as a replacement for Arda Turan. Manchester City have a declared interest whilst many clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have had him watched recently. Lazio have offered him a new contract which he will in my view agree to.}


No interest from Liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - Nigel De Jong is interesting Juventus who are expecting to make significant midfield changes this summer. De Jong may be considered as an alternative for Manchester United but he will be far from first choice.

He won't be moving to Liverpool.}

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool did make an enquiry about the player in 2010. PSG need to raise funds but he is not currently expected to leave. I am not aware of any contact with PSG about the player from Liverpool.}


There has been no bid for Vidal who won't be moving to Liverpool.

Firmino (he will most probably move to another English side who have had discussions with his club and put a couple of offers on the table


{Ed002's Note - Ahmet Bulut continues to whip things up, but this time he is correct that Arda Turan will very probably be available to move in the summer - however it will take a bid of around €40M for any sort of deal to happen - plus very significant wages and plus Champions League football. Atletico Madrid have twice rejected offers from Schalke but the only club that has shown any real interest at this time is Galatasaray, and the cost would be an issue. Don't rule out interest from Bayern Munich or Manchester United at some point. Bulut has spoken with a number of sides about the player - and there remains aslim chance that Atrsenal could turn to Arda. Atletico will negotiate as they need the money for the summer with bids for Cavani and Vietto coming.}


(A little bit of a wild card, but here goes. Talks with Barcelona over Kovacic have not really come to any useful conclusion and no one seems interested in putting any sort of acceptable offer on the table for him Inter need to sell a couple of midfield players to bring in the replacements they want - like Liverpool they are constrained by previous spending and the FFP rules. So, Inter now say they will keep Kovacic as no deal seems possible, and will make another player available - so I will throw the name of Brazilian Hernanes in to the ring as a player Liverpool might well consider. I appreciate that at 30 he is far from young, but he would be a very worthy free kick taking, goal scoring central midfield addition to the squad - and one to ably replace Gerrard. He is available and will be at a price that would suit Liverpool.)


{Ed002's Note - Manchester City and Manchester United are interested in Matuidi and PSG need to sell to raise funds, but whilst the player is keen to stay in Paris his agent has made it clear that he will listen to offers from England. Arsenal has also enquired about his availability.

Liverpool has shown no interest


{Ed002's Note - Griezmann only moved last summer, and Atletico has no intention of selling unless a very significant fee is offered. Whilst Griezmann has said on a number of occasions that he has no plans to leave Spain anytime soon, he has said he would be interested in a move to Chelsea if the opportunity arose.

Chelsea would need to pay more than his release clause to make any such deal happen, but with interest in other players not looking fruitful, I expect them to make an offer for Griezmann. Atletico have a replacement in mind.

Both PSG and Bayern Munich would also be very interested if he became available - but I doubt that PSG will be in a position to do any sort of deal, even though they are desparate for a high-end French player, and Bayern Munich are looking to him for a specific role that they have another player in mind for.}


{Ed002's Note - Nainggolan still has some complex co-ownership issues which once fully resolved will see offers from at least Manchester United and Manchester City, whilst Roma look for a new deal. He has a stupid enough hairdo to fit in nicely at Liverpool, but there has been no interest


Liverpool has no interest in him


{Ed002's Note - Kondogbia has had varying fortunes since moving to Monaco and whilst they were willing to let him move on both in the summer and, if the price was right in January, the only interested clubs have immediately back down for financial reasons. Monaco has FFP problems which are a little worse than those of Liverpool. They will certainly be looking to sell players this summer. Manchester City have a firm interest in Kondogbia as a possible replacement for Yaya Toure. Chelsea and Arsenal may well rekindle their interest in Kondogbia - but both will look to other players first.}

{Ed002's Note - Alonso will not be returning to Liverpool this summer.}

1.) 22 May 2015 19:11:50
Thought there was a bid in for Vidal and it was our usual embarrassing half price bargain bin offer, which serves to alienate the sellers and at the same time looks to placate fans wanting marque signings

2.) 22 May 2015 23:59:43
media-hype man

3.) 23 May 2015 03:22:54
Great update. If we get Milner, it feels like we're in no great urgent need so we can afford to go for deals only if make real sense rather than panic buys. Lucas for Kovacic maybe? Then we can also sell Allen.

Hope Milner doesn't choose Arsenal or somewhere else now given the shambles of the last few weeks.

4.) 23 May 2015 08:40:05
What worries me is that with Lucas allegedly going, we'll have no effective defensive midfielders. Rodgers will persist with this wretched 3-4-3 formation with Can at centre back, meaning that Joe Allen will be the midfield anchor. Teams will literally run through us for fun. As they're doing now.

5.) 23 May 2015 15:55:50
What about mitrovic??? I know you guys think a lot of him and believe he is exactly what we are missing !

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Anderlecht's Aleksandar Mitrović from Borussia Monchengladbach, Manchester United, Swansea, Dortmund, Newcastle and Eintracht Frankfurt. The interest of Leicester and Bayern Munich seems to have gone, but Arsenal may just look again at the player - depending on which direction they wish to go given their first choice as opted to moved elsewhere. The interest from Manchester United is recent and ramping up I am told. Newcastle are likely not an option.

I think he would be a good fit for Liverpool, but there is no interest right now. Aleksandar Mitrović offers everything Liverpool are missing - he is young, strong, fit, good in the air and he scores goals. In a way he is like a traditional centre forward. Unlike Manquillo, Moreno, Sakho and Gerrard, he speaks fluent English. People who have met him have said he is likeable and is reliable and will do what he is told. He would also likely slot straight in to the first team squad. Lambert perhaps at his best and 10 years ago or so would be the closest Liverpool have. }

As you might recall I had created a fantasy league across all the pages. Thought now would be a good time for a reminder.
The game is located at
The code to join this league: 15240-12211.
It's titled Football Rumors League

Entries to the league will close at midnight of 10th August BST so make sure you're signed uo by then.

Also additionally Ed033 has created a new fantasy football page if you want to ask any questions


1.) 25 Jul 2017 18:35:42
Quick question ed, do we need to start a separate profile for the fantasy page?

{Ed001's Note - no.}

2.) 26 Jul 2017 10:33:32
Ed001/ 002
Will it be okay if I post in onto the other banter pages?

{Ed033's Note - go ahead Reet



15 Jul 2017 06:23:40
If we do sign Robertson as reported, where does everyone see Milner fitting in?
Do you expect him to start the season as first choice and gradually transitioned to the bench for Robertson to come in or do you still think he can play there for 1-2 seasons as a regular starter?

{Ed025's Note - i see him as first choice right back myself reet..

1.) 15 Jul 2017 06:35:59
If TAA keeps up his performances in preseason it wouldn't surprise me if they both rotated the right back position, to me they are both better then Clyne. TAA alone I don't think he's ready to hold the position game in game out but if he was gradually put in, with Milner I think it'd work well for him.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 08:34:45
I agree Ed025, his only real weakness at LB is the constant coming back onto his right. Played at RB I think he could be great. I wonder if Klopp still wants Clyne gone? Eds?

{Ed025's Note - i would think so mate..

3.) 15 Jul 2017 12:02:23
I have thought Milner should have been England's best right back for years, had his career taken him that way. I still think he is a very handy right back option.



15 Jul 2017 04:31:50
Reading the posts from last night, let me just say
A Drunk Ed002 is God's greatest gift to humanity

1.) 15 Jul 2017 07:38:31
i sense Milner will start as first choice lb still with Robertson having to earn his starting spot, perhaps playing in cups initially.
Follow on question. If Milner doesn't start who's on penalties? Couts?



14 Jul 2017 00:46:52
Hey guys, a couple of posters were asking a few things about the football fantasy league.

Since it wouldn't be right to discuss all that on here, the Eds have created a separate Fantasy Football page on the site.

Come over and pay a visit there if you have any questions.



12 Jul 2017 13:34:46
Hey guys.
So I have set up a Fantasy league for this page and all others. It's a classic public league.
The game is located at
The code to join this league: 15240-12211.
It's titled Football Rumors League.

We had about 750 members two years back. So hopefully we can cross a thousand this time.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there

1.) 12 Jul 2017 14:08:51
When I get home I'll be on it mate. Nice one.

College was hectic to say the least, also why I haven't dropped in here for the last year or so.

Ed001, I'll be coming to Dubai someday for sure mate. How's life been there these days? I guess the editing and articles keep you busy. I'll tell you what tho, let's do commentary together for the charity match xD.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure how that would work mate. How would we do commentary?}
