Liverpool have "zero interest" in Nicolas Pepe and any reports saying they've held talks with Lille are "pure lies".

Liverpool believe their name is being mentioned purely to raise interest in his services. [@MelissaReddy_]

Make from this what you will.


1.) 25 Jun 2019 21:59:09
Make from this what you will. what do you think it means? It’s an enigma!

2.) 25 Jun 2019 22:05:07
Firmane I think she knows absolutely Zip tbh mate.

3.) 25 Jun 2019 22:06:36
Really don’t see us spending 70mill on an attacker that more than likely won’t play unless we tweak the formation and I think that unlikely considering we got 97 points last season and lost one game in the league. So for me that rules out Pepe and Fernandes. A sensible from a risk / money point of view would be Fekir or another player similar that’s available for 50 and under.

4.) 25 Jun 2019 22:16:02
Watched him several times. And must admit he looks a very good player! Similar style and build to Zaha but better end product. He will move to a top club in the foreseeable future for sure.

5.) 25 Jun 2019 22:13:35
Jordz truth of the matter is mate I don’t see us spending even 50M on Fekir for example. Cornet for 25M ish maybe but can’t see us spending big.

6.) 25 Jun 2019 22:21:32
Yeah that would make sense Virgil. I think we’ve missed some pace from the bench at times so maybe Cornet could provide that.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 23:01:11
City could bring sane of the bench why cudnt we rotate the front 3 with another, cornet is raw I would like someone like leon bailey bit more tested blistering pace and is jamaican, the new john barnes .

{Ed002's Note - Sane wants to leave.}

8.) 25 Jun 2019 23:16:00
I think we will buy someone like Pepe, fekir, Fernandes type. Creative, can play cam or wing, I believe Pepe plays more centrally for his nation, so I would be happy with him. I think there are better players valuable that fekir to be honest, Fernandes looks like he could be a little special, I’d be tempted to go for him.

9.) 25 Jun 2019 23:23:02
I have heard he is about too sign a new deal with city ed, not that I am in the know just paper talk, I knew bayern wanted him but I read they cooled interest.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have priced him out of a move.}

10.) 25 Jun 2019 23:56:27
Melissa Reddy denied that we had interest in Alisson signed a few days later.

Denied we had intersst in VVD signed.

Could this be a pattern? Hope so but hard to see where he would fit unless Salah is going.

11.) 26 Jun 2019 02:23:30
ESPN here in the States have reported that the club specifically informed ESPN that Michael Edwards personally called Lille to explain to Lille that Liverpool have no interest whatsoever in the player. Assuming this is true, I find it quite interesting.

12.) 26 Jun 2019 07:16:20
I wonder if they do that for all players.

"Hi. Is that fulham? We have no interest in ryan babel. K thanks bye"

13.) 26 Jun 2019 08:49:17
Aspas I find it strange that Edwards would ring Lille to say we don't want Pepe. Aspas I would just like to say am not looking to buy your house. Virgilfc as for Cornet I find signing him a strange one to surly Harry Wilson should get a chance before we go and spend £25m on him, Not sure he much of an improvement he would be on Wilson.

{Ed002's Note - There has been a sugegstion of tapping up made about Pepe and I would think that any call would be in respect of that. As far as I know there has not been any illegal approach made. Perhaps slowdog76 should consider what he says about calls to Fulham as that raises another matter about attempted cheating by Liverpool. I would hope that after the last incident the club has made it clear to Klopp that it is entirely unacceptable.}

14.) 26 Jun 2019 09:17:16
Hi Ed002, I think you missed sarcasm from Slowdog.

{Ed002's Note - I bet the club would love that sort of sarcasm - after trailing slime behind the board as they begged Fulham not to press charges against them.}

15.) 26 Jun 2019 10:02:21
Ed, No illegal approach made as you say but has there been any approach at all?

{Ed002's Note - How many times do I need to keep saying the same thing.}

16.) 26 Jun 2019 13:28:57
I think you'll only know the answer to that when you retire from here, Ed.

If the allegation of tapping up was against Liverpool (i'm guessing that was the case) then it kind of makes sense for the club to contact them saying they have no interest. If that did happen (and I won't just take ESPN's word for it), that should draw a line under Pepe for everyone, can you imagine the hot water we'd be in if we categorically stated we weren't interested and then went in with a bid? Lille would report us immediately.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what ESPN have said but I am not aware of any tapping up in respect of Pepe.}



14 Jun 2019 13:19:02
Hi Ed001, hows life treating you mate? You heard anything on the grapevine to get us excited about any new players or progress mate? Any snippet to liven things up a bit on here🤔.


{Ed001's Note - no mate sorry, been too busy with articles and a few other things to chase up anything much.}

1.) 14 Jun 2019 13:41:02
No problem mate, enjoy your weekend.

{Ed002's Note - I am half way through it here. It is hot, busy and nosy and covered in litter by those who annoyingly use the word “party” as a verb.}

2.) 14 Jun 2019 14:47:22
Nice Ed002, you’ve lost me though mate lol🤔🧐.

{Ed002's Note - my weekend

3.) 14 Jun 2019 14:59:13
Argh right I see Ed002. We’re abouts are you mate? Can you not shut the outside world out lol.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 15:12:36
That cracked me up ed002 it's one of my pet hates people using party as a verb too.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 22:19:23
Any interest in jon 'bon' Jovi heard he is headed to Anfield next week may not be nailed on as his house is not for sale 😇.

6.) 15 Jun 2019 05:20:06
You’re living on a prayer there, berg.

7.) 15 Jun 2019 09:10:24
Ed002 are you in Brasil?

{Ed002's Note - Israel.}

8.) 15 Jun 2019 20:29:50
Gotta keep the faith lfc hopeful.

9.) 15 Jun 2019 23:23:59
Let's hope people stop asking for articles then your transfer knowledge is far more valuable to me personally. I'd much rather know what's going on at LFC in the transfer window of which there's only 2 every 12 months and which the site is named for than read an article based on anything else that gets in the way of you knowing the ins and outs during the transfer windows.

10.) 16 Jun 2019 21:56:40
Well to be fair they update whenever they have. What else do you want, there's not a live update of continuous truthful info available. Id much rather hear only one piece of fact truth every 2 weeks as opposed to tabloids spouting 20 false info daily.

Maybe if you spent some time reading the articles he writes, you might be able to gain some knowledge on players strengths, personality, etc so you can make your own judgements on realistic and unrealistic options, instead of wanting regular updates. If no new information is available. This site would lose all interest to me if only questions could be asked and answered repeatedly without any learning about players and club's within the game.



09 Jun 2019 13:16:32
Echo now also saying no interest in bringing in Pèpè.


{Ed002's Note - And you believe them?

1.) 09 Jun 2019 13:31:54
No not really Ed002, believe you mate. You’ve explained the situation and not to hold our breath on it happening as would come as a back up.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 13:49:10
Echo who said we wasnt signing Alisson and keeping ward as number 1.

3.) 09 Jun 2019 14:26:02
If I’m honest I don’t really no what to expect or what is going on in terms of who we will sign lol.

4.) 09 Jun 2019 14:32:22
We use echo just like madrid use marca. just believe in eds Man.

5.) 09 Jun 2019 14:48:41
I no Livebird. I need to chil I think and see what develops. Just want ya to improve the squad and move forward into the new season on better shape.

6.) 09 Jun 2019 17:56:07
Just be patient and wait for one of the Eds to report. If you don't hear it from one of them, it ain't happening.

7.) 09 Jun 2019 19:31:38
Pointless speculating continually, if any transfer happens it happens. Talking about the same transfers every day doesn’t mean they’ll happen.

8.) 09 Jun 2019 20:37:36
Gonna be honest I’ve never heard of Pepe until this site so I’m not worried if either’either! Alisson was a no go last season and fabhino came from no where see what happens ed02 gives us guidance on what he knows so wait n see.

9.) 09 Jun 2019 22:55:54
I believe in Klopp and the owner. They are just taking there time to give us the best. Eds and Macca will continue to make it interesting here as speculations crop up.

10.) 09 Jun 2019 22:57:06
yea let's just see! We just need the right players not the most expensive.

This isn't meant as a jab at the eds at all, but I was wondering do you eds actually break news? besides Macca's "he has signed" posts, I don't think I've ever seen ed1 or ed2 for example put up a post saying we are about to sign so and so? y'know?

for me it's just information, high quality at that. but there is just as much chance of a signing happening that we don't hear about from the eds as one that we do! But I trust the info here than anywhere else.

{Ed001's Note - I used to, but I always check my information is correct before putting it out, which means someone who doesn't will have already put it out these days, so I don't bother any more. It is not worth the abuse as, even if you get 40 things in a row right, one move falls through and you spend the rest of time being told you got it wrong once and taking abuse over it. It is just not worth it any more racing to be first.}

11.) 09 Jun 2019 23:22:01
Blimey ed01 sounds like my marriage that mate🤦🏻‍♂️.

12.) 10 Jun 2019 00:04:51
Yeah it's a thankless effort to attempt saying that a deal is done before it becomes common knowledge. We saw it with the fekir saga, until the deal is signed anything can happen. Love deals like fabinho, so exciting when out of the blue. And Alison too went from hopeful to reality very quick. The long non stop ones like keita was frustrate me. Every journo saying done deal etc for weeks on end.

I prefer the eds approach, genuine info as opposed to speculation.
Keep it up thanks.

13.) 10 Jun 2019 00:24:50
You get 40 things right in a row and then get one wrong and hear about it for the rest of your life? I didn’t know my wife was on here ed 😂.

14.) 10 Jun 2019 08:07:42
Ed002 might not come on the site to break imminent transfers but informs us weeks in advance who we are looking at I'd take that over a post a few hours before sly gets hold of it.

15.) 10 Jun 2019 08:42:59
My favourite info he provides is when he flat out rules out any sign of talks or interest. That info makes me completely ignore any media reports or rumours regarding said player. Helps me deal with the madness of the transfer speculation.

16.) 10 Jun 2019 13:19:06
I think, or would like to hope anyway, that most people realise that a lot can change very quickly, and that the Eds might say something that is 100% true when they say it, and it goes the other way a day later. It happens, doesn't mean what is said wasnt right at the time. This place is my go to for anything LFC related, as been for years and can't see that changing anytime soon. That reminds me I need to contribute at some point.

17.) 10 Jun 2019 14:14:17
Makes me think of other signings that came close. Some near misses, Alex texeira, Dempsey, Remy were deals that were thankfully avoided. Lavezzi too I remember at one point.

18.) 10 Jun 2019 17:05:10
Or Luc Castaignos. He's ended up playing in Korea, lol.

19.) 10 Jun 2019 18:09:02
Haha so many. Gaston Ramirez was the next kaka. Sylvain marveaux too remember him, shocking.

20.) 10 Jun 2019 18:28:49
Heinze, Wickham.



08 Jun 2019 14:33:46
Hi Ed002, appreciate you are away and up against time atm but see. You have provided an brief update on Utds page of potential incomings/ interest. Just wondered if there was any chance we could have one also please? You have done this relatively recently for us but was whole back now.

No problem if you can't, thought I would ask.


{Ed002's Note - Quick and dirty:

Need G cover, possibly CB cover, LB/RB cover and LM if Lallana leaves - should look to a Creative AM player (along the lines of Fekir (as an example)) and drop Shaqiri and Keita down the pecking order. The club would also need to replace Salah, Mane or Firmino if any were to leave. If a Striker is to be added I would think it more likely an out of contract reliable option like Kruse rather than anyone costing €75M or more.

GK - Liverpool should look for someone who can be trusted, is older, homegrown and can help with the younger goalkeepers and youth coaching
David Marshall (G) might be a good solution

RB is a difficult position for Liverpool to address unless TAA is moved to midfield (as Ed001 tells me is the plan) and a new first team player arrives - although finding space for TAA in midfield still looks tough to me. There is no natural RB in the U23s who can step up, or so I am told, but we also know that Gomez can provide cover as well. In terms of who the club has looked at, I can only say that I am aware of two players, but no doubt there will be others:
Kenny Lala (RB/RM) only just signed a new contract Racing Strasbourg but has been looked at by the club - not sure if he would be available
Noussair Mazraoui (RB) whilst it has been suggested that Liverpool scouts attended the Ajax v Fortuna Sittard game to watch other higher-profile players, I understand that it was Noussair Mazraoui that they were particularly interested in, who ironically had signed a new contract earlier in the day. Manchester United have had scouts watch Mazraoui and the sustained interest of Roma has not gone unnoticed at Ajax.

If you were to ask me who I think is a viable option but the club has shown no interest in, I would say Valentino Lazaro (RM/RW/RB) who would be a great fix for providing cover for the whole right hand side. Else look for someone who can cover both RB and LB.

The situation at LB is rather different as there is an up and coming player able to step in to Moreno’s position of providing cover. However, I keep being reminded that thought persist about Lloyd Kelly (LB/CB) who has been used more in the CB role as Bristol City have a young LB on loan who is clearly preferred. I cannot say whether or not there was any firm interest in Lloyd Kell, but I can say he is moving elsewhere - so strike him off the list.

So my advice would be to utilise what the club has or risk losing him:
Adam Lewis (LB) I think he should be promoted to provide cover, in which case LB cover becomes less of an issue

CB is easier to deal with but one thing to be remembered is that if Liverpool are to bring in a first pick CB then Gomez becomes available to play or cover either FB position in addition to CB. Although if an up and coming CB like Godrey or Fry were signed, then Gomez would likely be first pick and they could replace Matip perhaps?
Aidan Wilson (CB) who has been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners (and would be the last person on earth to discuss any of this with me). More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociedad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave – and I would not rule out a Liverpool offer
Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
Ben Godfrey (CB) - an option to Fry
Ruben Dias (CB) Liverpool have watched the Benfica CB on several occasions and watched him in a national game against Croatia in September - however, he is heading elsewhere - scratch him from the list
Mattais de ligt (CB) I am not aware of any offer from Liverpool for de Ligt – although many of the fans have raised the issue repeatedly.
Dayot Upamecano (CB) Liverpool has shown no interest but people still ask about.
Francisco Ferreira (CB) has also been mentioned and I will remind regular readers that was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced the way he is in order to turn any potential buyers away, such as Manchester City, West Ham and Borussia Dortmund who have also shown a little interest and watched him in the B side over the past 18 months. Anecdotally, the other two were Modibo Sagnan (he will be moving to Real Sociedad in the summer) and Perr Schuurs (he was expected to join Liverpool at 18 – but moved to Ajax).
And my thoughts on who Liverpool should look to: Jorge Mere (CB) of Cologne, Marseille's Boubacar Kamara (CB) and RBL's Ibrahima Konate (CB) – all young with expectations set very high.

In terms of the DM position I doubt Liverpool will look to adding anyone unless there is a plan to change the way they play, but:
Sandro Tonali (DM) there has been interest from Liverpool but he is going to be very expensive and it is hard to see where he will fit in – I expect him to stay in Italy or if he moves to England there is another club that would be more likely

Midfield/CM is not a position where much is likely to happen but Liverpool need Lallana to be available more often or look to replace him with a LM player:
Nicolo Barella (CM) Whilst it is true that Nicolo Barella is of interest to Liverpool and has been watched a couple of times recently, he is being priced at the very top end of his market value, and Barella has made it clear that he wants to be a starter and stay in Italy - so difficult unless Liverpool plan to move Naby Keïta on to raise the money and make space in the side, it seems an unlikely move.
Diego Laxalt (LM) Long term interest will come to nothing
Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Spurs, Milan, Manchester City and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves - which I suspect he will. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets. Unlikely. Spurs are very keen.
Julian Brandt (LW/AM) can be scratched from the list
Joao Felix (AM) is not a player Liverpool has spoken to his club about and a lot of efforts are being made to finalise a move elsewhere. But people keep asking.
Julian Draxler (AM/LW) is also being offered around - Schalke (interested at the right price), Arsenal, RBL and I suspect Liverpool.
Nabil Fekir (AM) flexible and available but Lyon won't want to be screwed around by Liverpool again. Don't rule him out.

Wings and Forwards:
Paulo Dybala (AM/RW/F) is another one of the nailed on players that is perhaps not as nailed on as people think – however, he is available and Juventus are open not use him in a little horse trading for either Icardi (who is likely heading elsewhere) or Salah (whose “agent” has been knocking on their door for a while trying to make a move happen. Would be a decent Salah replacement.
Nicolas Pepe (RW) two sides are in discussions with Lille and Liverpool has not submitted an offer – if they did it would most likely be as a Salah replacement – I would not hold your breath
Federico Chiesa (RW/LW/F) significant interest from elsewhere and Fiorentina planning on pricing him out of a move at something like €120M, Liverpool has shown no interest, but if they do it would be as a Salah replacement - Klopp likes him I understand
Maxwel Cornet (RW) I understand Liverpool have spoken with his agent but, as of this time, not Lyon

Lorenzo Insigne (LW) – has been mentioned regularly but would be a Salah or Mane replacement but very, very expensive €150M asking price that would need to halve - another Klopp likes
Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld (LW/RW) right footed left winger - would be cover for Mane and has been watched by Liverpool
Everton (LW) Manchester City don't see value in the €50M asking price and Milan see him as a potential option – I am not aware of any declared interest from Liverpool but would only be expensive cover for one position
Thorgan Hazard (LW/AM) watched but scratch him off the list

Timo Werner (S) It has been reported by the Fat Kid from Bolton that a deal for Werner was agreed with RBL in January – it wasn’t. Someone else (whose name escapes me) has apparently said again recently that the deal with RBL is agreed and it is just the salary deal to be figured out – this is all news to Leipzig who have been speaking to his agent over a move to Bayern Munich trying to agree a price. There has certainly been interest from Klopp but right now there is no deal in place at all. It is had to see how Werner would fit in unless there is a change of style.
Max Kruse (S) a Sturridge replacement - low cost and reliable - may well be open to simply providing cover
Silas Wamangituka (S) I am not aware of any declaration of interest from Liverpool in Silas Wamangituka but he has certainly been watched by them so it is certainly possible it will come. Barcelona and numerous other sides, including several from England such as Brighton, Leicester and Spurs have also taken a look. A problem the English sides have is he will never be eligible to be home grown and would likely not get a work permit - whereas Barcelona don't have any such issues. I would not hold your breath.}

{Ed002's Note - Wong page.}

2.) 08 Jun 2019 15:43:06
Thanks ed very much appreciated its probably been covered but is it Salah edging for a move or is it his agent being a tosser trying to get more money for himself. When I listened to salahs interview before the champions league final he said he would like to win a trophy with liverpool which gave me the impression he is not with us for the long haul more like we are a stepping stone in his career path if he is wanting to leave I wish him well I would be more concerned if we lost manè or Bobby to be honest.

{Ed002's Note - You need to try searching.}

3.) 08 Jun 2019 15:48:20
Nice one. Thanks Ed!

4.) 08 Jun 2019 17:00:44
Brilliant as always.
Thanks for the time and knowledge ED 002.

5.) 08 Jun 2019 15:55:25
You call that "Quick and dirty" ed2?! 😅
Thank you so much, amazingly informative as ever!

6.) 08 Jun 2019 15:58:07
Cheers Ed002, really appreciate that. I think Lloyd Kelly has agreed terms with Bournemouth so maybe Adam Lewis will get the nod after all.

I'm not sure who I want to leave this great squad but i'd love Mazraoui, Fekir and Cornet to sign.

7.) 08 Jun 2019 16:25:05
Thanks so much for the update Ed! Living legend.

8.) 08 Jun 2019 16:52:26
Unbelievable insight Ed! Thank you!

9.) 08 Jun 2019 17:07:46
Ed, you're the best. Thank you for sharing the information.

10.) 08 Jun 2019 17:08:53
Thanks ed.

11.) 08 Jun 2019 17:38:03
Wow thank you Ed really appreciate that mate. Spot on. Sounds like we can rule out Pèpè despite everyone continually asking about him.

{Ed002's Note - Pepe is achievable but as I have explained he is not going to join a side to sit on the bench as "depth".}

12.) 08 Jun 2019 18:56:00
Thanks Ed002.
Brilliant update. It may have been quick and dirty, but some of us like it that way :-) !

13.) 08 Jun 2019 16:39:33
Thanks ED, always liked Fekir and think he would work well in the team. Have Lyon set a price for him.

{Ed002's Note - They will have a price in mind for English sides and a price in mind for other sides.}

14.) 08 Jun 2019 19:35:25
Just for curiosity, would he be cheaper or more expensive for a english side?

Who do you think would make the best fit for Liverpool in theory. Fekir og Fernandez?

{Ed002's Note - More expensive. Fernandes would be a far better fix.}

15.) 08 Jun 2019 19:48:47
If this was quick and dirty, I wonder what would be comprehensive and structured?! Thanks so much Ed.

16.) 08 Jun 2019 22:25:21
Thanks very much for the detailed info Ed2. Much appreciated.

17.) 08 Jun 2019 23:59:04
I'm struggling with this move TAA to midfield thing. Why would you do that to - arguably - the best RB in the league?

18.) 09 Jun 2019 07:14:56
Might not happen immediately but I see the potential and reasoning. Didn’t do Gareth bale any harm moving from left back to midfield and ultimately up front. though we was a bit of a jinx at left back!

19.) 09 Jun 2019 08:38:20
I'm in 2 minds Johnnyr, think he could make an effective box to box midfielder but i don't want to lose what he brings from out wide.

20.) 09 Jun 2019 14:36:37
Sorry Ed can you say who are the 2 sides in discussions with Lille are for Pèpè?

{Ed002's Note - The same as I have explained - Bayern Munich and PSG - and Inter may submit another offer.}

21.) 09 Jun 2019 16:09:54
Bruno Fernandes is another Bernardo Silva could be the peice in jigsaw we missing.

22.) 10 Jun 2019 00:40:23
Thanks ed for that overview. Regarding fernandes and spurs pinpointing him as a Erickson replacement. Would their interest in Lo Celso be in addition or an alternative to him? If they were to drop him as a target I'd love to see Liverpool try to sort a good priced deal, he looks perfectly suited to our style and I'd imagine at the right price be a realistic option.

{Ed002's Note - They won't sign both.}



03 Jun 2019 13:31:59
Ed001 do you expect the transfers in and out the club to pick up now the Final has been won? Any ideas or snippets from your end mate for the Full back cover and AM player?


{Ed001's Note - certainly now that the game is over the club will go to work, but nothing is coming out yet. Bit early though I do know we are looking for full-backs and have been scouting a lot of them.}

1.) 03 Jun 2019 15:22:38
Cheers mate appreciate your reply. Any new names mate yet, I like the look of the guy from Ajax but not sure he is obtainable.

{Ed001's Note - him and Lala are the only two I can think of off the top of my head.}

2.) 03 Jun 2019 15:32:57
Ed do you know what the situation with Lewis is for LB?

I know he has been discussed a lot but is he being given the opportunity to replace Moreno?

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was not seen as the answer.}

3.) 03 Jun 2019 15:59:34
Is that Noussair Mazraoui?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

4.) 03 Jun 2019 16:12:37
Any chance we’ll be looking at a cheap option like Alderweireld? Sorry if this has been asked already, I’m yet to scroll down.

{Ed001's Note - he is not a cheap option.}

Thanks Ed I guess he is only 19 so still very young!

Would be good for him to get some experience with 1st team football if he is not seen as ready yet.

{Ed001's Note - I expect he will go out on loan to be honest.}

Interesting that you said fullbacks and not fullback.

Obviously we need to consider a replacement for Moreno, who will be out of contract very soon, but perhaps we are considering an additional right back to compete with Trent and Gomez.

Would this mean Trent gets his chance in central midfield and Gomez at centre back more predominantly? I love seeing Trent at right back but I feel his skillset would be best served in the centre of the park, he has a great passing range, athletic, great work rate and stamina and a decent strike too. Gomez, if he can avoid these constant injuries, could be an important figure for years to come alongside Van Dijk.

Fingers crossed we identify the right players and spend wisely. Let's not forget that Keita has still to show his true qualities that served him so well in Germany. And Ox will be back, which will bring that offensive instinct in midfield which we have sorely lacked this season.

I’d love a sneaky Fabinho like transfer of sessegnon under our rivals noses.

8.) 03 Jun 2019 22:13:25
The banter we could have wid Kenny LaLa, he is a scouser in spirit with that name Laaaaaaaaaaar!

9.) 04 Jun 2019 02:19:36
Mango, why take a risk and move Trent from a position he is arguably the best in the world in at present and where he contributes so much to our team in an attacking sense, to midfield, where his crossing, which is his best attribute, would not be as easily utilised? The way we play, he's basically a right midfielder anyway. Plus, in the modern game, full backs are very important and a good full back is hard to come by, well certainly more difficult to find than a good midfielder.

Furthermore, there's no guarantee that he'd be as effective in midfield as he is at right back, given that he'd have less time on the ball in the midfield. If you look at things from a Liverpool perspective, rather than a Trent perspective, it makes even less sense, as we have an abundance of midfielders, most of whom are under the age of 30 and we need an attacking midfielder. It's Klopp's call but personally I'm strongly against this idea.

10.) 04 Jun 2019 08:38:06
agreed lemuel, I would have thought that TAAs transition to the midfield happens over a number of seasons.

11.) 04 Jun 2019 09:41:09
Still don't see why we'd push TAA into midfield when we have so many good players there but don't have a top quality right back. Seems a bit pointless.

12.) 04 Jun 2019 15:47:24
It's not just Mango that views him long-term as a midfielder. LFC does as well, at least that's the status from a couple months ago.

Personally, I like him right where he is. I find it very hard to upgrade his spot (defensively it's possible, offensively good luck! ) and I also don't see how he brings more than what we already have to the midfield either.

13.) 05 Jun 2019 19:56:25
Taa is excellent going forward, but defensively could be improved on.

Been at family BBQ all afternoon. Mates there are all on Twitter (I am not) . They showed me multiple posts with people actually believing we are signing Firpo lol. If only the new about this site. They would then realise that we have zero interest in Firpo. We are not splashing 50M on a player to be back up. As explained.


1.) 22 Jun 2019 20:05:18
Virgil, seriously mate. I respect the Eds view as much as the next guy but you are going to choke if you suck any harder 😂.

Morning Rugby Parker. Yes few mate sherbets must admit lol. Let’s see what happens today with the Transfer circus.



20 Jun 2019 02:36:51
Is there any update at all as regards to our pursuit of full back cover?




18 Jun 2019 21:35:25
Good evening Ed001

Our 2 cup finals coming up mate Community shield and the UEFA Super Cup. They are both seen by some as a waste of time but do you think that Klopp and the club will take them seriously and try to win them, or not?


{Ed001's Note - I am sure Klopp will take them seriously.}

1.) 18 Jun 2019 23:11:03
No doubt klopp will add to his final loses,1 in 8, he'll be remembered like benitez winning with houliers team, but this time with Southamptons success, joeyored.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 04:01:48
Take every game seriously IMO - complacency is like rising damp, once it sets in, very difficult to get rid of.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 11:13:32
United claim them to be major trophies so we should lol.

Good morning Ed002, was you hoping still to do a Sharkopod soon at all please?


{Ed002's Note - I am travelling so it is not really viable right now - but I will be back in England around next Friday.}

1.) 14 Jun 2019 10:24:02
Ok mate thank you very much.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 10:40:20
safe travels Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}



11 Jun 2019 09:26:07
I see the Echo are at it again this morning stating that we will not be returning for Fekir this summer. Despite Ed's explaining it is possible. It's the only Paper I read up until this point but from now on I'm not reading it! He almost everything wrong and contradict themselves most of the time.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 12:07:32
Personally, I don't6 think we will get Fekir even tho, it is possible that Klopp may still go in for him. I don't think Lyon and that owner of theirs will want to deal with us again after last season esp. again, sine we are interested in another Lyon player in the person of Maxwell Cornet, a wide forward.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 13:57:09
I think it has less to do with Fekir and Lyon's owner, and more to do with the direction and style of play Klop wants to pursue next season. We've done relatively okay without a designated AM this season, and Ox and Keita provide good options to fill in for the role when needed. Perhaps Klopp sees it as more important to shore up the forwards/ wingers ranks than a designated AM?

I was one of those clamoring for a creative AM earlier in the season. But then you can't argue with success; UCL Champion and second in the EPL is unquestionable success. No point in fixing what is not broken.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 15:17:47
What do you mean the echo isn’t cutting edge journalism that have countless of independent reporters perpetually investigating the truth!?

They just regurgitate what most of the rags report.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 18:10:29
But fekir is far from a simple central 10. He has often played in wider areas and was originally a striker. He could play bobbys role perfect too when needed. The likes of Werner and pepe offer much less balance in being able to cover left right or deeper.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 18:57:53
Great assessment of Fekir, Har_red92. If Klopp wants Fekir to play out wide (tho pace is not his game) or through the middle cos well, he was a CF (now plays in the 10 in a 4-4-2 diamond) then Klopp knows something I don't.

6.) 11 Jun 2019 23:53:00
You need to stop taking things so black and white. There's lots and lots of grey in the rumours game the eds will tell you stuff they know varies between the Ed, ed1 says trent will probably play midfield ed2 says ed1 says that in a clear hint he doesn't think so. Which one is right? Nobody knows until it happens or it doesn't. Eds and macca regularly disagree with what they know and the only thing they all agree on is that they are all itk. If the echo says it won't happen and it does you know they spoke without knowing. If the eds say oooh it might happen you never know then if it does happen you can point back to that post 3 months ago and say they knew all along and the reality is somewhere inbetween. Imo the only one to really stick his head on the block is macca and he's had it chopped so many times I can see why the eds don't go so far as to say x is signing or x is a done deal.

Jordz truth of the matter is mate I don’t see us spending even 50M on Fekir for example. Cornet for 25M ish maybe but can’t see us spending big.
