Any truth that Bayern Munich see Klopp as a long term successor to Heynckes?

Thanks for all your hard work.


{Ed002's Note - I assume this is Twitter. The timing isn't right now so I would not worry about it just yet.}

1.) 24 Mar 2018 20:30:52
Do any clubs have Klopp in their plans for the future like Bayern did at one stage?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs rarely plan like that.}

2.) 24 Mar 2018 20:58:38
But some day huh Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Of course they will consider him as an option.}

3.) 24 Mar 2018 21:25:01
I think Thomas Tuchel will likely end up as the next Bayern manager.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 22:52:23
It seems Tuchel has turned Bayern down. Rumour has it that PSG has Klopp on its list of candidates to replace Emery, in the coming sumer.

5.) 25 Mar 2018 03:48:28
I think Liverpool will be the last club Klopp manages. Raphael Hoginstein has a piece on Klopp spending 7 years at Mainz, 7 years at Broussia, and will spend 7 at Liverpool. He has a special relationship with each club and has said he won't coach into late age.



06 Jan 2018 18:53:10

Any truth that Newcastle are looking at Danny Ward on loan?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 19:35:10
Danny Ward has a number of potential suitors and I have it on good authority that his preference is for Nottingham Forest. it surprised me too . Klopp has td him that he sees himas LFC number 1 long term.

{Ed002's Note - I can’t see Liverpool sending him on loan unless Bogdan is now fit. Klopp promises a lot of things that aren’t true. If he has told him he is a future first choice then Liverpool won’t be looking for a new keeper for many years to come. Or maybe Klopp is lying again?}

2.) 06 Jan 2018 20:51:39
Cheers Ed.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 21:12:49
Lying being the same as not carrying out what you said you would despite the other party failing to keep their side of the deal?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about. If Klopp has told him that he will be number one then Liverpool has no need for a new GK for years to come. Or Klopp’s lying again.}

4.) 06 Jan 2018 22:06:01
Maybe he will be number 1 but as in that will be his squad number not first choice. Something needs to be done with him cos he is being wasted by LFC.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 21:57:29
I'm not sure Klopp knows who his first choice is right now so I don't believe what you may have been told, Kimos.



24 Aug 2017 12:17:05
Dear Eds and Reds,

I've been told by a source to expect a VVD bid by the end of the week. This source is 50/ 50 for getting things right, but he did tell me in May he expects us to sign Robertson.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 12:38:59
although I doubt your source is doing anything apart from guessing here I think you might be right.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 13:20:53
My thoughts too. Plus the windows ending, so somethings going to happen soon.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 13:26:35
I've heard this too, not sure how true it is though.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 13:09:17
Hi eds wat would happen if we just put a bid in will it open up the whole tapping up thing an will we be open too punishment by f. a.

{Ed002's Note - let it go, we are sick of people trying to bring it up over and over again.}

5.) 24 Aug 2017 13:49:59
Sorry just I am trying too cling on too any hope.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 14:22:04
I hope so. Great going forward, defense not so good.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 15:18:12
Ive given you both a thumbs up and a thumbs down, 50/ 50 like.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 15:47:52
if it comes to tapping up then southampton must as well not sell to chelsea, man city and Chelsea too. For southampton saying theywill not sell VVD to liverpool based on tapping up would be very ridiculous really.



09 Aug 2017 21:41:19
from Sky sports news is Liverpool have rejected a second bid from Barcelona worth 100 million euros.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 21:58:00
"We understand Barca’s latest offer was €85m (£77m) up front plus €15m (£13m) in add-ons"

That is a vast amount of cash up front :-O

It is clear Liverpool want to keep Coutinho.

2.) 09 Aug 2017 21:58:21
Hopefully Barcelona will now go away! 👍🏼.

3.) 09 Aug 2017 21:59:22
Not just rejected IMMEDIATELY rejected!

4.) 09 Aug 2017 22:12:19
Imagine how many Nectar points that's worth!

5.) 09 Aug 2017 22:24:15
Jog on barca.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 22:26:52
Eds do we no if the latest bid for Couts included a player as suggested or not at this stage please and do you expect them to come back in?

{Ed025's Note - they will come back in MR but there is nothing yet about it including a player mate..

7.) 09 Aug 2017 22:27:18
Liverpool say not for sale and matter now closed.

{Ed025's Note - oh no its not..

8.) 09 Aug 2017 22:43:53
why do barcalona think they can just click there fingers offer us pettycash and one of there castoffs and we'll jump at the offer. on your bike barca. come back when you offer us all the neymar cash.

{Ed025's Note - £90m is petty cash...sigh..

9.) 09 Aug 2017 22:45:16
Oh hello Ed025 please tell us more. You expect Barcelona to come back with a 3rd bid?

{Ed025's Note - its just my opinion but yes uggers..

10.) 09 Aug 2017 22:27:18
Liverpool say not for sale and matter now closed.

11.) 09 Aug 2017 22:54:50
It's a sad state of affairs if your best player wants to leave given we're in the CL barring a disaster against Hoffenheim and on the genuine cusp of a real challenge for the PL. Why not just wait until next season, and if you have another corker which is likely Barcelona will still be there and in the meantime you give the club and fans that love you a bit back. If he puts in a transfer request then fair enough let him go but not for a poxy £85mil or whatever is
Being offered in instalments. Remember Suarez? Barcelona were still paying off that transfer for 3 seasons. Money is no use to you if you lose the belief of your fan base and most importantly the best manager we've had in years. I've read all the previous posts about courting Barcelona for a season etc etc but if Coutinho is honest he'll be playing 3rd maybe 4th fiddle to messi Suarez etc where at LFC he can cement legendary status with a PL title. Come on Pipco tell them you're happy at LFC and to go round the block until next season.

12.) 09 Aug 2017 22:55:15
Nooooooooooooo! Like that pain in the ass ex that won't leave you alone. Go on swim on Barcelona jeezus! Love the work you boys do to buddy!

13.) 09 Aug 2017 22:57:30
You mean like Southampton and RBL are saying their players are not for sale? No means no for us, but for others no means yes? We can't have it both ways.

14.) 09 Aug 2017 22:57:42
Or maybe we can 😏.

15.) 09 Aug 2017 22:09:16
Anything in this ed002? Would feel much more confident if you got the same info.

{Ed002's Note - I understand it is correct.}

16.) 09 Aug 2017 23:17:09
Yep we can take your players but you can't take ours. Bottom line is were now finally establishing ourselves as a club that's building a serious team that are serious about winning trophies and were not selling our best players anymore. I'm sorry Southampton but your a feeder club you have been for a long time now and made a tidy profit from us from it. I get they don't want to sell there best players now and want to establish themselves to and to be fair if they wanna stand firm and keep VVD and risk having a player that now can't stand to be at the club then crack on. Not sure I'd want him watching our backline if that was the case. Couts hasn't said he wants to leave he said he would like to play for Barcelona but won't force a move or kick up a fuss that's a massively difference circumstance to that if VVD. VVD can see were building something special here and wants to play out with us. Come on lad jump In!

17.) 09 Aug 2017 23:42:13
It's going to be around the £120 mark inc a player and we will agree it.

I hope not but if the lad wants to go that bad enough to not instantly agree to give us another year then let's wish him well and move on.

18.) 10 Aug 2017 00:18:25
I'd say only if we can get the Keita deal agreed Roro. Otherwise I think he stays no matter what the offer.

19.) 10 Aug 2017 01:09:59
So much for this Friday's press conference, eh? . Or maybe it's to announce that they will give up on Coutinho? Let's hope so.

20.) 10 Aug 2017 04:03:12
Hoffenhiem are a decent club. It is no walk over. It is a tough tough game against fitly evenly matched teams. We should edge it.

21.) 10 Aug 2017 04:27:40
I think it is US who will be calling press conference! Someone should tell Spanish press coz were coming for that European cup.

22.) 10 Aug 2017 00:36:04
With all due respect ed025, it was also once your opinion that Van Dijk was never ever ever going to happen :p.

{Ed025's Note - and it has?..must have missed that one robin..

23.) 10 Aug 2017 11:12:47
85 million euros with 15 million in ads ons. sorry but that is short of the mark. No thanks.

24.) 10 Aug 2017 09:23:18
Ed025 you dismissed the idea of it even remotely happening!

{Ed025's Note - i never say definitely on anything robin...except that liverpool will definitely not win the league mate..



20 Jul 2017 18:21:12
I'm not one to normally do this, but an unreliable source I know (wouldn't trust him with my life) swears his life that he has seen VVD with Klopp in Southampton. If klopp had flew from Hong Kong to England I'm sure the press would know by now.


{Ed002's Note - There is a look-a-like it seems. }

1.) 20 Jul 2017 18:29:36
Hi Ed 02, has VVD actually handed in transfer request?

Thank you and kudos for the hard work. Big fan here .

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

2.) 20 Jul 2017 18:30:56
Sorry in my special Liverpool glasses that is Klopp. I can also see Keita and VVD in shirts with 10 premier league trophies in the background. Moreno still seems to be here though.

3.) 20 Jul 2017 18:51:55
It could be Klopps lookalike member of staff who sits on the bench with him.

4.) 20 Jul 2017 19:12:04
Think Kloppo prefers to go in disguise.
Ive read, that while he was Dortmund manager, he actually made two trips to Poland in disguise, to watch Robert Lewandowski, who was then a virtual unknown player.
And the rest is history as they say.

I wonder if he was dressed as 'the laughing policeman' in Blackpool 😂.

5.) 20 Jul 2017 20:36:43
If this is serious, didn't ed002 say that VVD was in Austria, never mind the fact klopp is in Hong Kong.

6.) 22 Jul 2017 12:54:00
Ffs ed002 you got me there, I actually went to the link expecting a RL look-a-like. Well played, made me laugh a lot louder than I was expecting to so thanks xD.

We don't like it if its too easy!

The redmen will still triumph being the first team to score at Roma in the champions league.

Mo Salah brace as we come out 2-1 winners next round.

Bring it on.


1.) 24 Apr 2018 21:48:55

Barca went there, tried to have a keep-ball training session and got mugged. We're not going to do that. They are not going to keep a clean sheet against us.

2.) 24 Apr 2018 21:49:10
Definitely mate, we've got it, it's no problem.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 21:54:25
Don't think its that easy! that defending has totally killed the buzz, could concede 3 at Rome like that!

4.) 24 Apr 2018 22:11:03
What about Roma’s defending Dean? You reckon they will keep a clean sheet at home?

5.) 24 Apr 2018 23:23:23
Dean, if you allowed that to kill your buzz then I'm starting to wonder if you had that much to begion with. This is the CL where NOTHING is easy even if we make it look like that at times. If you thought Roma were just going to go away after going 5-0 down then that is your fault and no one else's. Why? Cos it happens if you don't focus and we were not. That is the reality. I still have the buzz cos we have a 3 goal lead and CAN score in Rome. We know it, they know it, EVERYBODY knows it.

As for the away leg, people comparing us to Barca, need to go watch that Roma/ Barca game and then we can discus. As Something Red said, Barcelona tried to sit on the lead and offered very little upfront. They were relying on Messi and Suarez who were dire all game in addition to their manager not making ONE change until Roma score the 3rd in the 85th min. Sorry, we are NOT Barcelona and will NOT be sitting on any leads. Roma will be playing vs a team that is MUCH better than Barcelona collectively, individually in most areas and with a better manager who does NOT sit on results. I'm cool.



02 Feb 2018 19:56:58
Hi Ed001,

Interested to hear your thoughts on Alan Hansen as a pundit? Personally I liked him. He spoke his mind but I felt he was not doing it to make good television or to attract attention.


{Ed001's Note - he is the only one on TV I liked. MOTD died when he retired.}

1.) 02 Feb 2018 20:13:44
Alan Shearer not to your liking then? I don't think he's as bad as some of the others on TV.

{Ed001's Note - a lot of what he says is for a reaction imo.}

2.) 02 Feb 2018 20:38:38
Alan Shearer is apparently a bit arrogant and self important and comes across as such. That’s said never met him so who knows!

3.) 02 Feb 2018 21:07:52
All the other pundits come across as reactionary petulant babies. Hansen always seemed to have real gravitas and wisdom behind his opinions. Everyone always goes on about 'yo won't win anything with kids' but fail to mention every other pundit who utters a wrong statement every other sentence.

4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:24:17
Guy who i know used to live in Newcastle and said that he often ran in to Shearer, Given and Speed on nights out. Apparently they were all very humble nice people who always spared a minute for the public. They frequented the quiet establishments rather than the high octane clubs.

Talking about 10-15 years ago now though. People change so Shearer may be an arse now. Gary Speed, bless his soul, is no longer even with us 😪.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 22:19:48
Brooking and Hansen best line up for me.

6.) 02 Feb 2018 22:37:24
Shearer is a cock. Hansen may be a Liverpool legend but as a pundit I liked him, although “you can’t win anything with kids” was not his finest hour. He was credible, knowledgeable and believable. Shearer and his ilk are idiots, pandering to public opinion. I didn’t always agree with Hansen but I respected him.

7.) 02 Feb 2018 23:58:21
Ay. shearer is a massive blort.

8.) 02 Feb 2018 20:35:32
Thanks for the fast response Ed!

{Ed001's Note - you are welcome, not sure why everyone is bringing up that kids line as he was right. If people actually bothered to look at that team it was full of experience. It was a very balanced team with Schmeichel, Bruce, Pallister, Irwin, I think Ince was in it, Keane was no kid, Cantona, Cole, Giggs was very experienced by then, there were others who were in and out of the side as well. It won because it had the right blend of experienced heads guiding the youth.}

9.) 03 Feb 2018 12:05:58
Ed, I don't think Hansen has been taken out of context. If you watch the video, the host of the show says "well, they have got star names to still come in, like Cole and Giggs, and Cantona and Bruce", and Hansen replied "yeah and it's still not enough, you need strength in depth to win the championship and they just haven't got it".

{Ed001's Note - I never mentioned context, I just said that line that keeps getting quoted is nonsense as they did no such thing.}

10.) 03 Feb 2018 12:23:44
Yes but was Hansen actually talking about a team full of kids? Or a team with both? Because like I said, when the host mentioned a few experienced names the squad had, he basically said 'nope, still too many kids. '



24 Jan 2018 22:19:39
Hi Ed001,

What are your thoughts about giving a few players a run out against West Brom? Not changing the whole lineup, but mixing in our strongest lineup with a few differences, such as giving Woodburn and Ings a start?



{Ed001's Note - I don't get why you would want to do that? I was brought up on 'the next game is the most important one' so you always play the strongest team you have. The changes I would make would be to midfield, neither Woodburn or Ings are central midfielders at this moment in time.}

1.) 25 Jan 2018 05:33:06
Which changes would you make to the midfield? Who can give us that spark of creativity?

{Ed001's Note - it is not creativity we are lacking, it is intensity. We need to drop Wijnaldum, he takes too many touches while moving nowhere. I would swap him for Lallana, who takes too many touches but at least he is moving with the ball usually and so moving the defence around ahead of him.}

2.) 25 Jan 2018 06:07:12
I would give Gomez a game at CB with VVD and bring in TAA for RB. Lallana runs into everyone else's space too often for me. I coach an under 12 's side and it frustrates me when they do it. So when Lallana does it, it blows my mind that a professional player still makes the same mistakes an 11 year old kid does! I feel sorry for my kids that they don't get paid astronomical amounts of money to do it.

3.) 25 Jan 2018 07:28:52
He's possibly in a free role though Preso. We don't know his exact instructions.
Kids will be kids :)

If you ever have time some day or today if possible, would you be able to send in an impression of your own of youth coaching levels and what mistakes are made by coaches to knock young players back, as well as what the positives are and how coaches can improve youths without over-coaching them please?

It's no problem if you can't, I'd just be interested in someone else's perspective on this subject.


4.) 25 Jan 2018 07:44:46
Lallana isn’t the answer, least not till he’s fit. Too many touches, I’d try against the teams that park the bus putting solanke or Ings up front and give firmino a free role. Bit risky but we don’t need as high intensity press against teams that sit in.

5.) 25 Jan 2018 08:51:45
Always thought Lallana was extremely effective at times when he wasn’t taking as many touches and looking to move the ball on as quick as possible. It’s when he dithers on the ball that his effectiveness drops off.



15 Jan 2018 21:34:35
Dear Eds,

Thoughts about the use of social media by footballers? If possible it would be great to here a pro and con about it.


{Ed001's Note - I honestly can't think of any pros to it. But then I do not like social media, it is not social and just brings out the worst in people.}

1.) 16 Jan 2018 07:27:09
If you are a player, social media should be nowhere near your way of life, IMO.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 07:43:58
Isn't this a form of social media Ed? I am only a Digital Consultant, but it does look and feel like it 😉.

{Ed001's Note - good point, I should have said unfettered social media.}

3.) 16 Jan 2018 09:57:10
I think social media gives fans an insight to their idols life's.
As silly as it seems. a lot of younger kids use this as motivation.
They can achieve that. I want to.
dont get me wrong I don't think it's a good thing personally. but I can see it's merits.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 13:16:45
Given how Footballers tend to be a little bit dense, why do they not have people run their twitter for them? I know some do, but what I mean is why don't the club enforce this kind of thing?



12 Jan 2018 22:20:46

This isn't Liverpool related but a big congratulations to Ann-Katrin Berger after a successful operation in her battle against cancer! She is said to be back in between the sticks later this season now.

I'm very happy for Dan the man. I really hope he gets firing again and makes a difference. A player with great talent and I would like to see him thrive. His future does not seem to be at Liverpool but I see no reason why he can't continue a great career elsewhere.

It's quite sad how easy people will hang a young player, who has had his fair share of great games for us, out to dry.

Players learn through experience, they do not stay with the same ability forever!

If Salah has a dip next season, is he going to be the next one we call to sell? (I don't expect fans to go to this level, but I recall some posters mentioning "Mane was a one season wonder" after his slight dip at the start of the season)

Alonso made the game look too easy. When a player does not need speed to look good, you know they have that perfect read where they always seem to be in the right position.
