So ed's have the Karius and Zielinski deals actually been done to your knowledge? Or are we still getting ahead of ourselves a little? Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - getting ahead. Grujic and Matip are the only deals that have been completed for next season.}

1.) 17 May 2016 10:41:29
Haven't actually seen a concrete answer from the Eds yet as I think they weren't 100% sure yesterday, but can the Eds confirm that we've put in a bid for Karius? (or are we getting ahead of ourselves again haha)
Thanks for all the good work on this site!

P. S. I'm feeling even more jittery about the match tomorrow than my graduating final exams next week hahaha


{Ed001's Note - a bid? Not as such. We have spoken to Mainz though. Bids are not thrown about the way people talk about, many deals are done without any such thing as a formal bid being presented.}

2.) 17 May 2016 10:58:32
Hi ED001. Haven't heard your thoughts on Karius. What do you think of him?

{Ed001's Note - not seen a lot of him. I have heard a lot of good things about him, but not from anyone I would trust to judge a keeper. So I have no thoughts, just going to wait and see how he gets on.}

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if James Milner has actually changed his opinion on playing in the left back role? Or is he still unsettled about it? Given the amount of grief he got from fans and a few of us on here, he has become a important member of the squad. I'm happy to be proved wrong.


1.) 30 Dec 2016 22:36:58
He is a very well payed player who shouldn't complain if he's in midfield up front left back or even in goal he is wearing that famous red shirt that I'm sure he is proud to be wearing, just look at how well he has performed since settling into left back that guy deserves some credit just for a bit of a moral boost and maybe might improve in that position even more, I mean who else is out there at the moment that can do the job to the level he has this season?

The guy can play anywhere because he can read the game and these days that's a rare commodity in the modern game it's the difference between good players and great all round players.



22 Dec 2016 20:35:46
Short Estonian documentary on Ragnar Klavan. It's in Estonian but has English subtitles. I found it really interesting, he seems genuinely happy to be at Liverpool and has a great work ethic. Although he seems to admit that Klopp got in his ear a little, hope it doesn't cause any more issues for us.


1.) 23 Dec 2016 11:53:09
Nice one, thanks for posting. Couldn't see any problems there at all. Cheers.



02 Oct 2016 15:47:06
Ed001 if you get a moment could you share your opinion on Bravo at city? The reason I post on this page is cause from what I have watched he seems to have worse distribution than Migs. Do you think it's a confidence issue or pressure or just a poor buy? I don't rate Hart in fairness but Bravo doesn't seem like a step up.


{Ed001's Note - he is just struggling to adapt, he is normally very good with his feet. In Spanish football you don't get put under the same pressure as a keeper, so it is a major culture shock for him. De Gea struggled with the same issue early on. The only question is whether he is too old to be able to adapt now.}

1.) 02 Oct 2016 16:03:10
Completely agree with De Gea, but wasn't his issue with his strength? I don't feel that Bravo is going to adapt myself, he looks defeated already. As a side, hope the move went well and Spain is treating you well.

2.) 02 Oct 2016 16:18:19
It doesn't help that because of the deal been made of the situation, that he is getting put under increased pressure from players and fans. Every time he gets the ball, the whole opposing croud taunt him, which raises his nerves and helps the closing down player. Any mistake or long ball would be met with jeers.

3.) 02 Oct 2016 16:19:25
I personally can't see him adapting here, though I do think it's a little to early to judge.

4.) 02 Oct 2016 18:01:40
He is on the verge of World Class in which position? Do you mean as the most centre of the 3 strikers/ attacker? He will probably never score at the same rate as Suarez/ Neymar/ CRon/ Messi. his game is not really about that. But if he is getting on for 1 goal every 2 games, he is right up there in world football as a attacker.

5.) 03 Oct 2016 06:08:37
Im not so sure iconicred, i still think he's better off in goal.

6.) 03 Oct 2016 09:17:39
EPl is just too fast for him?

7.) 03 Oct 2016 15:01:13
Ed if it`s a culture shock for him, isn`t it then Pep`s job to protect him by not asking him to do the whole passing thing from the back at least for right now because heavens, they guy looks a bag of nerves with the ball at his feet and the fans on his back whenever the pressure is on?

{Ed001's Note - I would say the manager needs to help him somehow, but maybe he just wants to let him play through it.}



10 May 2016 14:03:12
Just donated, not much but hope it can be put to use anyway! Pretty shocked you didn't expect us to rally around Ed001, especially after keeping this free for so long and all the valuable information we get from here and on top of that us kopites look after our own! YNWA!


{Ed001's Note - thank you and it is just that I am not good with asking, I was always told those that ask don't get. Mind I was also told that those that don't ask, don't want.....}

1.) 10 May 2016 14:18:51
Yeah, I was told the same thing. Used to live by it until I was 12 and then I wanted a PlayStation haha! I've seen a few suggestions of a donation button and I would be cool with that. Or even a subscription for people who want to post and use the site for discussions and the community aspects, your either going to weed out the trolls and abuse or you will at least make them pay for the privilege! Good luck though Ed001 really hope this ends how you want it to.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

2.) 10 May 2016 14:21:48
Hi Ed01,

Tried to donate many times and it is saying my card is blocked for some reason. Not sure that link will accept donation from India.

However wishing you a happy and successful married life and hope you settle very well in Spain.


{Ed001's Note - thank you mate it is appreciated that you tried.}

3.) 10 May 2016 18:53:49
Eds wishing u the best of luck mate. I'm sorry this just the wrong point in my life to help u out, getting married myself in a couple of months so it's only moral support I can offer you right now. Hope you get everything sorted out soon without any problems. Ynwa mate and this has just proved that.

{Ed001's Note - just make sure your day goes off well. Thank you for the best wishes and the best of luck.}



17 Nov 2015 20:31:09
Ed001 I recall reading a thread about players who nearly signed and it got me wondering, what ones known or not do you feel would have made the biggest difference to us and what ones are you happiest we missed out on?


{Ed001's Note - David Silva was the one we missed out on most of all, I feel, he is a magician. Though Ronaldo is a better player, he would not have stayed long so would have made less of a difference overall.

Pretty much every player that Comolli tried to get and failed with are the ones I am happiest we missed out on. Toivonen, for instance, has shown how completely average he is.}

1.) 18 Nov 2015 06:17:38
Comolli still gives out "expert" advice and pops up in shows and highlights his "contribution" to clubs like Liverpool! Joker.

While a lot of Comolli's recommendations were poor, Payet was a player he put forward to Kenny but Kenny chose Downing.

{Ed001's Note - again this crap about Payet, it was not a case of him 'choosing' Downing. Payet had off field issues and the club was warned off moving for him. The whole reason he was available for West Ham to buy was because of his constant problems. Please stop regurgitating crap from Comolli's mouth about Payet, and how Comolli was one he desperately wanted rather than Downing. Comolli was the one who put forward Downing's name, due to his stats being excellent. No idea why this lie is being constantly perpetuated about how he didn't want him. Comolli is a slimy snake who should be ignored.}

2.) 18 Nov 2015 08:20:50
I don't get why Downing got such a harsh ride from our fans?
I thought he was bought originally to compliment Carrol, but often KK would sub on off for the other, I never thought he played too poorly when he did play, and in his first season, he had Enrique behind him, who was woeful which really didn't help.
2nd season under BR he was constantly changing position from left back (joke) to right wing, to left wing. Once again I never thought he had a particularly large bad patch, he just never really got on the score sheet, and let's be honest it took Suarez a LONG time to get firing at LFC too.

3.) 18 Nov 2015 07:52:36
Also, FSG were dead impressed by the video of downing kicking the balls into the bins!

4.) 18 Nov 2015 09:25:43
That's news to me Ed001. The Payet thing I remember from Ed002's comments but is been a while since that happened so it is quite probable that I am remembering what Ed002 has said wrong!

5.) 18 Nov 2015 08:17:23
Thanks for the response ed, just out of interest however, how close were we to actually getting silva over the line?

{Ed001's Note - we had a deal set up for both him and Villa which was just waiting on final details and signatures. So very close.}

6.) 18 Nov 2015 11:50:30
I seem to remember that, Carroll, Downing, Henderson and Adam were all bought as an attempt to 'Moneyball' the premier league. Downing, Henderson and Adam were the three players who had created the most chances the previous season and Carroll was the player most suited to scoring these chances.

I'm pretty sure Football can't be 'Moneyballed', Baseball can be broken down into statistically measurable and consistent moments, Football is a far more fluid affair with vastly greater variables.

{Ed001's Note - forget moneyball, it is irrelevant to football, just moronic journalists who keep talking about it to make themselves sound clever.}

7.) 18 Nov 2015 12:45:55
Oh my, never knew we were that close to signing both Villa and Silva! Why did the deal collapse at the last minute Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - it was a long time ago now, but if I remember correctly G&H pulled the plug as they had run out of money. I seem to remember it being the spark for the war Rafa got into with them.}

8.) 18 Nov 2015 14:35:06
Thanks again ed. Never realised it was that close! I seem to recall someone saying that we nearly had benzema signed before higuain got injured. I assume that we had that deal done until that point or was it never that far along?

{Ed001's Note - it wasn't done but it was being worked on.}

9.) 18 Nov 2015 17:27:46
Alexis Sanchez is also another one. I will add Ali Deli too. I thought yaya toure was on our radars too.

{Ed001's Note - Sanchez was not another one, he had no intention of joining us sadly.}

10.) 18 Nov 2015 23:04:21
I didn't know we were working on Benzema! that would have been interesting. Probably one for the Euro pages but personally though i do like Benz, Higuain was banging them in for RM! I knew about Silva and Villa would have been interesting! I also heard a long time ago similar time we looked at Villa and Silva, we'd also had a look at Alves but again GH didn't have the money, or rather didn't want to spend the money?

11.) 19 Nov 2015 08:04:44
You know Benzema is currently sitting in a French jail for trying to blackmail his teammate right?

I would guess that the reason we get tarred with the tapping up brush is because unfortunately we are well renowned for tapping up players. I recall off the top of my head Fulham making us grovel so they didn't make an official complaint over Clint Dempsey and there have been numerous examples since. Our name is mud now due to us lowballing teams and our general acting like we are better than everyone else when to be honest we don't sit at the big boy table of European clubs anymore. Not when it comes to big decision making anyway.

Thanks for the reply Ed002. Was I right in remembering he was close to leaving at one point? Did we speak to him? Or is it just wishful thinking on my part?


{Ed002's Note - Everton were, not Liverpool. Real Madrid and PSG were the others.}

I think we should have gone all out and pushed for the bloke at Sevilla. Monchi I think? I think he was going to leave at one point for a new challenge if I remember rightly and his work speaks for itself.


{Ed002's Note - Monchi would be a great choice but I would expect Klopp to walk if he came. Monchi understands the game, youngster, the transfer process and how to ease players through at the right time - he is in that way the absolute opposite of Klopp.}

Didn't he say as soon as he signed we didn't need to worry about him going to the AFCON because he wanted to establish himself and settle at Liverpool first otherwise the move would be pointless. I for one feel it's commendable that the player wants to put us first.

As a side Ed002, given the response to the above do you think it's pretty much assured that Coutinho and Firmino will go in the summer? I get the feeling there could be bids in January for them given they are eligible for Champions League football.


{Ed002's Note - I don't see either leaving in January.}

Hamman was the man who won us the champs league imo. Made the difference.

I tend not to bite at this kind of opinion, but I feel it needed here. Anyone that blames Gerrard and that slip for costing us the league that season is just using that as a stick to beat him with. They tend to overlook (as shown here) the loss against Hull, a home loss against Southampton, draws against WBA and Villa. The palace draw is for me a proud moment, as I saw my team realise that they needed goals and from what I saw tried to beat Palace by a ridiculous amount to claw back some of the goal difference to put pressure on City again. I'm more than happy with that in that situation. Now as a person it's well known Gerrard is a weapon, and he has done some damage within the club previously. But if your going to slate him at least give him stick for something that's actually down to him.

I get the feeling that a lot of the interested clubs were happy they didn't sign him given the fact he shown no real interest in his development as soon as decent money was offered. Adding to that the fact his dad seems to be too involved and is trying to push to hard and still trying to sell the player as a first team starter to Madrid. When all he seems to be doing is pushing him out the door.


{Ed002's Note - They really wanted a deal with Rennes to take him on loan but Rennes do not see him as ready for their first team.}

Just a swift question as nobody else seems to have mentioned it yet, How comes coutinho wants out still? And how many others want out? If your willing to throw in names then bonus, however I just wanted to gauge how long the list of players that want out is. Cheers in advance Ed002 and no worries if it's not something you want to discuss.


{Ed002's Note - Coutinho wants to play at the highest level and that opportunity has not been afforded him at Liverpool. More than a year ago I explained that Coutinho had said that he will leave Liverpool in the summer if they didn't have Champions League football to three of his International colleagues. He was also aware of interest from Barcelona and one of the three is a Barcelona player. That interest has not gone away whilst Liverpool managed to persuade him to stay and the club know that both PSG and Barcelona are keen on Coutinho. At the end of October his representative visited Barcelona to make clear that the player is open to a move there during 2017 and this re-enforces the recent comment from an international colleague that Coutinho has got Neymar to speak to Barcelona about him as well. Liverpool will try to avoid selling.}

You have any names to give us in regards to who the upgrade could be? Or is it too early?


{Ed001's Note - it is not looking like a January change, so it is too early to say.}
