Hi Eds, can I ask whether there is any truth in the rumours that Lfc have been showing a recent interest in signing Mustafi from Valencia?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest in him from Liverpool.}

1.) 17 Aug 2016 15:53:38
I suspect it is his agent / Valencia drumming up the price for him, for arsenal to pay.

2.) 17 Aug 2016 15:58:29
Thanks Ed, looks like its probably just the usual internet rumour/ garbage then.

3.) 17 Aug 2016 17:52:28
Just read somewhere Liverpool have denied this rumour.

4.) 17 Aug 2016 19:15:51
Thought Arsenal are favourites to sign him, as Ed said Liverpool have shown no interest in him, is it German manager, German player thing again.



25 May 2016 22:48:45
Eds, can I ask if you will indulge me and try to guess what Gotze's reasoning is by him choosing to stay put when he has been told he is not wanted at bayern, and therefore won't get much game time? And also thereby might threaten his starting place in the national squad?
Is he giving out this message because he will lose out a lot financially if he is seen to be the party that instigates the move to another club?
Surely if a major club makes an offer he will be interested?
I'm not suggesting that Lfc would be an attractive proposition at this moment, but one imagines there will be other offers?


1.) 26 May 2016 02:10:16
There will be more than one thing going through Mario's head at the moment. He would walk into pretty much any team but he could want to stay to prove a point or it could be down to a loyalty bonus but I doubt that he would join us regardless. If Coutinho leaves I believe we will push hard to sign him but ultimately only he knows what his motives are at present. I honestly believe reuniting him with Jurgen Klopp is what he needs but we are a mid-table with no European football and that will also be playing on Goetze's mind.

2.) 26 May 2016 03:36:41
I think he wants to go back to Dortmund but they don't want to spend the money on him, so he is staying put until next summer to leave on a free.

3.) 26 May 2016 07:02:23
He's one of the Mario Brothers, I hope Kong snatches both of their women. I'll throw beer barrels at the pair of them.

4.) 26 May 2016 02:33:48
Goetze could be holding out for january transfer if things dont work out for him. Smack of Borini situation.



22 Jan 2016 19:02:24
Hi Ed002, apologies for continuing the game of throwing random names at you, but I just read an internet rumour that Lfc have declared an interest in a left back called Raphael Guerreiro of Lorient.
I don't suppose you know whether there is any truth in this?
One has to wonder about the future of moreno if this rumour is true, although the lad has already said he wants to play for Real at some point
(Which probably means as soon as he strings together enough good performances that they show an interest. )


{Ed002's Note - Far from new. Lorient left-back Raphael Guerreiro has been of previous interest to Newcastle, Milan, Arsenal, PSG, Manchester City and Sampdoria. Marseille, Liverpool, Sunderland and Swansea have had watched the player this season - whilst an Arsenal scout says they may look again. Liverpool interest would come to the fore only if Moreno were to leave.}

1.) 22 Jan 2016 23:44:14
Thanks Ed, much appreciated.



21 Dec 2015 18:19:33
Ed002 I wanted to ask your opinion if I may. How you would try to solve the clubs goalkeeping concerns?
The options seem to be
1. Keep mignolet as starting keeper until the summer and look for a long term replacement in the meantime, accepting that a top four finish is even less likely given he will probably cost us a few more games after xmas
2. Promote bogdan to starting keeper until the summer. Again it does look as if he will cost us a few games too
3. Try to sign a new keeper in january- although it seems our likely targets won't be available anyway

I hate the casual slagging off of players that is so common these days with lfc fans, but I do think that the club cannot afford to continue with mignolet as starting keeper in the long term, he is simply not good enough for enough of the time.


{Ed002's Note - This is secret advice that should not be shared, but, personally I would look to a very smart move in the summer for a well-respected excellent goalkeeper with extensive Premier League experience - and at 28 he is currently only a second pick.

I would take the position of enquiring with the agent of Asmir Begovic to see if his client would look favorably on Liverpool approaching Chelsea to see if he could be made available. This would be a smart move in that Begovic is a very good goalkeeper, as he has shown when he has had the opportunity at Chelsea and previously at Stoke, he has a mass of good experience, but he knows he will continue to be only the second pick at Chelsea. Also, it would be a good move knowing that Chelsea as a club do not, as a rule, stand in the way of players looking to leave if they have a replacement. And Chelsea do have a replacement in mind who would certainly be open to the more limited chances a number two goalkeeper gets compared to the very rare chances a number three pick would get. So it might help ease that transfer through. Begovic wouldn't be cheap but he would be a low risk option that could be available in the summer - and "low risk" is a key point with goalkeepers.

I don't see any knee-jerk reaction in January - for no other reason than clubs will not be looking to sell players in key positions (particularly goalkeepers) in January.}

1.) 21 Dec 2015 19:57:59
Surely Begovic knew he would be No2 when he signed so why would now be any different? also didn't he knock us back before he signed for Chelsea?

2.) 21 Dec 2015 19:57:22
Would that player in mind as the replacement be mignolet by any chance ;)

{Ed002's Note - No Fencey.}

3.) 21 Dec 2015 20:13:35
Cheers Ed, begovich would be a real boost if it could be done.
Fingers crossed that Klopp and t'committee see sense.

4.) 21 Dec 2015 20:32:31
What about Diego Lopez when fit? Now they have that 16 year old kid, will Milan be worried about selling? Swap for balotelli haha!

5.) 21 Dec 2015 21:01:37
Timo Horn

Kiko Casilla

Victor Valdes.

6.) 21 Dec 2015 22:54:48
Valdez? Seriously!

7.) 21 Dec 2015 23:49:32
Do u think we should hire another gk coach, eds?

{Ed002's Note - No. #WonderDogSparky runs a fetch and catch training class on a regular basis. It will be an improvement on what Liverpool already has.}

8.) 22 Dec 2015 01:05:25
Begovic would be an excellent choice, if CFC really are interested in Benteke, maybe a cash plus AB deal could be brokered . With young Ward up at Aberdeen doing really well, would it also be possible to recall him as our no2 keeper, maybe offering Aberdeen Bogdan in exchange? Begovic and Ward would make us a lot steadier between the sticks, and maybe we could find some poor team that will give us a few quid for SM .

9.) 22 Dec 2015 12:34:15
Bruce Grobbelaar said that the other day, he said the goalkeeper coach has had two years with Mignolet and if he still can't coach him they need to get a new coach.

10.) 22 Dec 2015 08:12:28
We missed the chance to sign him up in the summer. He was available. the Money was less and we did not. Chelsea wouldn't sell anyone till summer unless they bring a new manager.

11.) 23 Dec 2015 11:18:21
Begovic is not the required level for LFC to push on. He hasn't played well for 3 years now. Yes an improvement on Migs, but no where near a level we need to be competing.



17 Dec 2015 10:22:04
Hi Ed002, are you able to say whether there is any truth in rumours that lfc have scouted granit xhaka- and if yes, do you think lfc have a serious level of interest in the player? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Xhaka signed a new long-term contract but there is interest from Atletico Madrid and Inter. If he were to become available, interest from England may arise. Previous interest from Stoke and Everton is gone. Manchester City and Arsenal have scouted the player and Arsenal would likely continue that interest.}

A question for the Eds if I may- Klopp has very recently refused to rule out a future for Sakho at LFC.
Some fans are hoping Klopp has had a change of heart and softened towards the player, and of course us fans don't know the details of the falling out between the two.
My suspicion is that Klopp is still determined to move him on, and is simply protecting the summer sale value of the player by making his recent statements, but can I ask for your opinion?


{Ed002's Note - Sakho will leave at the first opportunity that suits Liverpool and the player.}

1.) 03 Feb 2017 00:16:26
Thanks Ed

2.) 03 Feb 2017 16:13:13
Doubt Sako will make his move to Palace a permanent one.

3.) 03 Feb 2017 21:40:48
Probably end up at Nice with Balo lol.



17 Oct 2016 12:47:07
Mourinho is well under way with the mind games already.
He is worried that the ref may try a bit too hard to avoid showing any pro-utd sympathies, so he makes a statement about how much pressure the ref will be under etc- thus adding to pressure the ref is under.

Then he takes the mick out of klopps touchline arm-waving, and saying he (jose) is there to coach, not to wave his arms around.
I feel sure his mickey-taking won't bother klopp in the least, and it won't make klopp alter his style- in fact I hope he will do some arm waving at jose for a laugh.

This is one manager that jose will not be able to unsettle, anger or otherwise manipulate by mind games.

Hopefully the ref ignores jose's comments as well. There is admittedly a risk of the ref favouring lfc in his attempts to show that he has no pro-utd bias, but managers are now forbidden to make comments about the ref ahead of the game, so there will likely be a modest punishment given to jose- after the game of course.

Part of me has a sneaking admiration for his sheer desperation and his will to win whatever the cost, but the greater part of me despises him a bit for the fact that he will literally go to almost any lengths in order to win a game- including any amount of cheating that he or his players can get away with.
I'm expecting some of the nasty old chelsea gamesmanship tonight- surrounding the ref to protest every major decision, time wasting with fake injuries, everything.


1.) 17 Oct 2016 13:53:17
I remember when he tried to do the same mind games nonsense with Klopp before Real Madrid played BVB in the CL and Klopp said intelligently about mind games, "I am not intelligent enough to know what all that means". Priceless! Klopp did his mind-gaming on the pitch and owned Mou in that game, just like he has owned Mou his whole career. Mind games don`t play football. Players do.

Just wanted to say a major major thanks to all the long suffering Eds, and in particular 001 and 002, who put up with reading through the same questions- and in all too many cases the same rubbish- all the way through the transfer window.
We would be lost without your efforts and your patience, and I won't be the only one wishing you all a big thankyou for giving us some idea of what's really happening behind the scenes, and not leaving us to rely on the thousands of pages of utter garbage that appears all over the internet during silly season.
Thank you guys.


1.) 03 Sep 2016 08:27:58
Eds, everyone has a right to opinion and all that bleeding-heart liberal stuff but can we not just ban those who disagreed with this? Surely they are the trolls that bring this site down with their vile bile and would not be missed?



23 Jul 2016 15:55:30
Eds, have lfc's targets changed for a left back? A lot of fans considered it one of the highest priorities for strengthening this summer, but leicester and villa have both said they are confident about keeping hold of their players.
Do you thinn lfc will be moving on to other possible targets, or might they settle with moreno as starting lb for another season?


{Ed002's Note - I do not expect the club to buy for the sake of it and interest remains in the left backs I have mentioned. Right now I don't expect Moreno or Brad Smith to leave.}

1.) 23 Jul 2016 17:31:35
Thanks for the reply Ed, much appreciated.



21 Jul 2016 12:16:11
So how about a bit of chat about the futures of hendo, milner and lallana?
Are those three more likely to be coming on from the bench by the end of this year, once the new boys have settled in and really started to challenge for starting places?
And can the new boys give what those three do- which is hard work, good pressing and a positive attitude?
What would your starting 11 be assuming the new players adapt and perform well?
By xmas I'd be hoping to have grujic and Can in a mf two, with mane, firmino and couts ahead and sturridge as striker.
Looking at the players, I do wonder if klopp is thinking more of adopting a 433 though.


1.) 21 Jul 2016 12:53:17
Milner surely has to go, i still don't see what he offers and he isn't getting any younger.

Lallana should go if a quality replacement can be found, whether that is wijnaldum or not i do not know.

Henderson is captain and should stay, he is a good player.

2.) 21 Jul 2016 13:20:18
Spot on Wooly. I never saw reasons why Milner was signed and Lallana has now become a luxury squad member especially with Mane on the right who is better than him. I wouldn`t mind if one or both were sold this summer.

3.) 21 Jul 2016 14:01:32
Milner did well at times last season and overall was consistant, nothing special but never was really. I think he will still be dependable to Klopp, but won't worry if he goes.

Lallana stepped up from seemingly unable to complete a full 90mins to being the best presser we had. Ended up a real workhorse. Problem is, he stunted our attacks and can't score. Klopp will be buying players who can press as that's his style, so again won't worry if we lose Lallana.

Henderson. He is for me a really good player, a lot better then he gets credit for. I'm not sure what changed, maybe the injury he carried and carries is now affecting him in a more demanding set up? He is able to score, to set up and to lead. He is like an engine and will run through walls. He should be higher regarded for playing through pain as many could sit out and collect a wage. That's a captain. Never forget we missed him that season we came close. We missed him last season when he was out or not 100%. Hendo is important and still due his prime years. Imo can't lose Hendo and if fully fit, first name down for midfield.

4.) 21 Jul 2016 14:06:12
I'm very much team Hendo, I think he's as important to us as Coutinho and Sturridge and I'd see Can dropped before considering replacing Jordan.

I wouldn't sell Milner but I can't see him getting as much game time this season as he did last. He's not a player we need but, in the same vein as Lucas, he's a useful guy to have around. If injuries bite we'll regret it if he's left.

As for Lallana I'm intrigued about how his season will go, if he scored more he'd basically be the perfect Klopp player but it's that lack of goals that may see his game time curtailed. It all depends on how much Klopp depends on his terrier like qualities, if he sees the ability to win back possession as crucial then don't be surprised if Lallana starts more often than not.

5.) 21 Jul 2016 15:21:34
Didnt Milner have the most assists for us last year, I think he is well worth keeping even for leadership alone.

Mane1nil, its an lfc page but there aren't enough Eds to edit only for their own supported clubs- the Eds all support different clubs, and I know all the regular posters and readers will agree with me in saying that Ed025 is a top bloke.

Lets not disrespect the guy, because he is kind enough to give up hours of his life each day to edit posts for a rival club.

Save the talk about "bitters" for those other pages where everyone talks s**te (especially the Eds) - the price for getting very good info on this page is that we have a bit of respect for the Eds, and that's more than fair enough.

Red Bull have flatly resisted every bid by lfc, and every effort by Keita to force a move.

And so far, at least in public, Saints have flatly refused VVDs attempts to force a move.

Why can't lfc just do exactly the same with Coutinho? Turn him down flat, let him train alone for six weeks and don't let him near a pitch, and see if he changes his attitude by October.

If his attitude changes, we gain a vital player for the really difficult period around december and jan when we have so many injuries.

If he continues to sulk after Oct, then we will have effectively wasted a few million on his salary for the season, and he also risks losing his starting place in the national team.

For me there is a decent chance he will perform well once he settles after the window closes, but it is possible we will be paying a player millions to rot in the u23s because his attitude is not right for a PL campaign.

Its a real shame to miss out on VVD, but the club's reputation must be damaged by these sorts of blunders.
I can't help wondering whether potential future signings that we approach will tend to doubt the club's credibility in the transfer market.
That said, with a rumoured price tag of over 70m, I wonder which clubs will make offers?




Click To View This Thread

03 Jun 2017 23:42:23
If it truly is 70m then we have to walk away.
Only a wage cap and a transfer fee cap could ever stop this escalating madness of spending in football, and we all know that won't happen.
But there are defenders available in europe for around half that fee, who can perform to 80-90% of VVDs level.
The problem is that the super rich clubs like City will simply pay the 70m, or 150m- or whatever it takes to get a player they realy want. And clubs who can't or won't join the mad spending spree will always be second best- barring the odd miracle like Leicester's title win.
If this sport is so money driven that a cb sells for 70m, you do start to ask yourself what it is that we as fans are actually supporting.
Are we supporting a team or filling the pockets of agents and obsecenely overpaid players?
It makes me wonder.

It is certainly very striking that both brad jones and adam bogdan's form has improved greatly since leaving lfc. I think jones even won an award recently.
Reina has also improved, at least since his latest move.
Is all that enough evidence to replace achterberg?
For me personally, yes it is. Asap.

To be fair I haven't watched Celtic play this season, but I think brendans key player choices might reflect that he still isn't giving enough consideration to the importance of a really organised defence in his tactical thinking- if it is the case it will cone back to bite him when he is back in a strongly competitive league.
But the area I think he needs to address in order to realise his potential is motivating players and building a ream mentality- some of the lfc team displays in his last 12 months were just abject, with players appearing lost or disinterested- and it was often week after week.
