Heard mahrez is being lined up to replace couts 🤔🤔surely not as he plays on the right wing doesn't he eds. have anyone heard anything on this and can mahrez play more central if needed 👍.


{Ed001's Note - the only club I know of in for him is still Roma, who won't match the asking price. Arsenal are the likeliest team from the Prem to try and sign him, as Wenger does like him.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 12:18:30
Thanks for the reply bud. he is a cracking player just couldn't see where he'd fit in in our line up👍👍.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 13:07:02
Is there any truth in luan from gremio.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 13:15:48
We have firmino

Go and get a striker.

Hendo can
Salah firmino mane
Xxx xxx.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 14:12:51
We obviously have bigger probs at back we need too pull out all the stops too get vvd or someone who is dominant in the air and a leader_organiser.

5.) 18 Aug 2017 14:14:42
I liked the idea of luan cos he is a number 10 and striker apparently.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 15:04:57
We need a no.9 not another Bobby.

7.) 18 Aug 2017 15:13:05
True and also the south american prob of becomin world class then wanting madrid or barca.



29 Apr 2017 17:54:14
Do any of the eds know if there's still any interest in the full back Taylor from Leeds heard he's decent 👍.


{Ed001's Note - I believe our interest moved on, though now they are not in the promotion play offs he could well become an option.}

1.) 29 Apr 2017 18:59:53
Thanks pal do you rate the boy?

{Ed001's Note - not really, he is ok, but nothing special. He is half the player of Sessegnon.}

2.) 29 Apr 2017 19:53:56
He'd be huge drop off in quality compared to sessegnon.

3.) 30 Apr 2017 02:11:05
Would he be an upgrade on Milner tho!?

{Ed001's Note - certainly not immmediately, it would be buying potential.}



28 Apr 2017 13:39:22
Question for ed02 . how do you rate ox chamberlain? And are we interested in him? Only reason I'm asking is he's seems heavily linked with us in the press and he's odds on in the bookies as well. I can't make my mind up on him if I'm honest sometimes he looks decent then other times looks like there's not much end product. cheers in advance if you reply 👍.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool for Oxlade-Chamberlain and it makes little sense as his primary position is similar to Mane. If Klopp sees him playing behind Mane in midfield then it would be that right sided role Can and Wijnaldum have been playing in recently. Last summer the likes of West Ham and Leicester showed some interest. I would be surprised if he were to move but perhaps Klopp sees something in him - his haircut is rather silly but not really up to Liverpool standards. And if I were a Liverpool fan I would be a little disappointed if he were signed.}

1.) 28 Apr 2017 14:55:14
we can and should be looking for better than this.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 15:26:11
Cheers ed. appreciated 👍 Hope we set our standards better than ox. oh and can't believe lovren got a bumper new contract. klopp must think he's up to the task in our back 4 I sadly think not😬 2 good games then 1 howler evertime really not good enough.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 03:43:22
I'd be happy with ox. He is still very young and has lots of experience at champions league and international level. Could have similar impact to what Sturridge had when he signed from Chelskie at a simailar age.



21 Apr 2017 09:14:25
Ed02 if you're about . is lacazette or Marco rues a possible option for us? I've listened to the sharkpod and it's a good listen and you're knowledge is much appreciated. I'm not just plucking names out of the air here as we've been on and off for a while been linked with these in the press. I think up top of the field we look great better than most but we need strength in our squad if we do manage champs league and want to try and win domestic league next season? If we got no chance of these 2 do you have a clue where these might end up?


{Ed002's Note - Possibly and probably not is the answer.

Interest in Lyon's Alexander Lacazette from Newcastle and Inter has long gone. Additionally, whilst Guy Hillion has continued to extol his virtues but there is no support whatesoever from the folks in London for a bid at this time - so prior interest of Chelsea has gone. Barcelona, Atletico, Juventus and Spurs had him watched late last season - but Barcelona had another solution in mind for what they want and will not be following up. Juventus took it no further and moved to hold talks about another player and Spurs purchased Janssen but may still want to add a striker in the summer - but Lacazette may become an option again so I would not totally discount Spurs nor Juve.

West Ham enquired after Lacazette's availability previously and submitted two bids that were rejected - but wages and the lack of desire from the player to move to a club like WHU means that option has probably gone - plus Lacazette will want Champions League football.

Dortmund are continuing to hedge their bets by looking for a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replacement and have watched Lacazette on a couple of occasions.

Arsenal decided that the asking price was too high in the summer and opted, for reasons beyond me, for Lucas Perez. I suspect that they might return in the coming summer when they will be in the market for a striker and Lacazette might well be a good option for them - much will however depend on who the manager is.

He is not first or second choice for PSG but they could potentially turn to him if they fail to bring anyone else in - I think a less likely option.

I am not aware of Liverpool showing any interest in the player recently, but (a) if they look to move Sturridge on (which I think they will), (b) if Liverpool qualify for the Champions League, and (c) if Liverpool have the stomach to pay what will likely be €60M for the player, then Lacazette might well be an option.

Lacazette is a player that Mourinho has looked at from his time at Chelsea, but any interest will depend on what happens with Ibrahimovich. Right now Manchester United have shown no interest.

Lyon are very difficult to negotiate with and they may well see an Gallic shrug in response to any initial bids. Lacazette wants English money and Champions League or Juventus. Lyon will look for at least €10M more for a sale to an English side as they know what they can expect from elsewhere. Two French players who have played in England have been providing advice to Lacazette that it is not essential to move to England immediately, but I suspect he has other ideas now and would welcome a move.

Dortmund would be open to selling Marco Reus this summer as a means of generating funds for what may need to be a major rebuild of the side.Arsenal could be interested as a possible replacement for Sanchez if he was available at a reasonable fee and critically can prove his fitness - which in itself is a major issue (and an on going issue). Bayern is no longer pushing for him and I think are unlikely to look to him again even though there are issues with both of the long-term replacements for Ribery and Robben and Dortmund are reluctant to lose any more players to thems. Real Madrid and Barcelona interest has moved on for now. The interest shown briefly by PSG has gone and it would depend what happens from a head coach stand point whether or not that returns. As with everything there are issues, the one Chelsea identified that made them step back from their interest, whatever the asking price ends up being, and his ability to prove and sustain fitness.}

1.) 21 Apr 2017 09:47:06
Hey ed! Could you share some more info about who Bayern's long-term replacements for R&R are? I ask on this page because it might have an impact on Brandt, who is one of our confirmed targets.

{Ed002's Note - Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa.}

2.) 21 Apr 2017 10:09:53
Wow. Now that's what you call a detailed response. 😋.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 10:48:56
Cracking response ed👍 Didn't expect anything else cheers bud much appreciated. I'll take you're response as their nailed on for us then 😂😉.

4.) 21 Apr 2017 11:43:52
Brilliant response Ed, thanks for the reply

Think Lacazette would be a good option if Sturridge were to leave and complementary to Firmino and Origi as a different sort of player to both of these.

{Ed002's Note - Don't forget Ings.}

5.) 21 Apr 2017 13:26:30
Fair call but he still needs to prove he can recover from some pretty serious injuries. I think going into a potential CL campaign season with just Firmino and Origi and Ings is a big risk (again assuming we sell Sturridge) .

On a related topic, we also clearly need an option to cover for Mane/ Coutinho too, but Firmino can offer that flexibility, so I personally think we should either go for a WF (e. g. Brandt) or a new CF (e. g. Lacazette/ Dembele) depending on how Klopp sees Firmino long term (ie. Is Firmino a full time striker or a part-time false nine? ), but we don't need both.

6.) 21 Apr 2017 14:08:05
Agreed with Zimbo. A wide forward like Brandt/ Williams will give us enough flexibility; Mane I think can also play in the middle, after all. Firmino and Origi with Mane as a cover and hopefully Ings/ youth players for cup games ought to be enough. That said, I really like the growth of Dembele and wouldn't mind seeing him in the club. We are not in a position to offer him regular time though.

Also, if Alex OC comes to the club, he would be able to offer cover both for the Lallana and the wide positions, minimizing the need of "pure" CF even further. I guess we will see.

7.) 22 Apr 2017 09:31:40
Do you think Liverpool could possibly have the stomach to pay 60 million euros?

8.) 22 Apr 2017 11:11:10
Somewhat related, personally from what little I've seen of him to like him do like him as a player. But he has 25 goals in 27, but read 9 were from the penalty spot (which again I don't discount as is a talent to put pens away) but that means in open play has 15 in 27.

Mane has 13 in 27 from playing wide in the BPL which I think shows how good a signing Mane has turned out to be!

9.) 23 Apr 2017 12:45:35
Who for, Robin?




hmasson2's banter posts with other poster's replies to hmasson2's banter posts


07 Dec 2017 12:20:45
Ed002 if you're about matet. I was certain couts was off to Barcelona in January but does Liverpool involvement in the last 16 sway his way off thinking cause he'd be cuptied with Barcelona and surely he wants to have the opportunity to win this cup with us. you think maybe he'll agree to sign for them in January but move in the summer . cheers if you reply bud would like to here you're thoughts. ps with RBL out of champions league is it possible we get Naby January or is it wishful thinking 👍.


{Ed002's Note - You need to put any thoughts about timescales out of your mind. To be clear. Coutinho wishes to leave Liverpool for Barcelona - spending 90 minutes as captain or reaching the next round in the CL will not change that.}

1.) 07 Dec 2017 12:32:15
Ok fair enough thanks for the quick reply . I know he wants out matet just I was thinking players all go on about champions league and to throw away the chance to play in the last 16 with us would be strange if he still had the opportunity to join his dream club in the summer. that’s all bud I know making him captain was nothing to do with making him stay. cheers.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn't work like that. Barcelona met more than once with Liverpool during November to try and get agreement by the 30th as I have explained. His agent visited Boston with two member of his family to try to get FSG to agree to the sale because the player is so keen to move on. No doubt Coutinho will now be concerned that Barcelona will also consider other options as has already been explained.}

2.) 07 Dec 2017 13:10:28
Is Verrati not there first choice anymore?

{Ed002's Note - Verratti plays in a different position and is one of a number of players they have considered as an Iniesta replacement - unrelated to Coutinho where they have alternatives to Coutinho to consider. We are beginning to go around in a circle with this.}

3.) 07 Dec 2017 17:44:21
I do agree with you Ed that Couts will go but how can you possibly know what will and won’t affect his decision? You say 90 minutes as captain won’t change that. The next stage of the CL won’t change that. How can you possibly claim to know the inner workings of Coutinho’s mind? Like everyone else you are just guessing. Let’s just see what happens.

{Ed001's Note - he has made it clear he wants to leave, it is not guessing to know that he wants out.}

4.) 07 Dec 2017 19:56:17
I think we're just hoping that last night gave Coutinho a change of heart and now he wants to stay forevs, we know coutinho wants/ ed to leave but like ings n things says we can't really tell what song is being sung in Coutinhos head right now.

5.) 07 Dec 2017 22:13:03
i just want him to work hard until he leaves.

6.) 07 Dec 2017 22:00:27
No point in clutching st straws, you can see his heart’s not in it.
I personally couldn’t bring myself to sing his name last night, not sure how others felt that were at the game?



12 Nov 2017 16:21:56
Hearing Barcelona offering cash plus swap deal. but I'm struggling to think of when teams actually do this🤔 anyone got any recent examples of swap deals I'm stumped.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 16:42:23
Can’t think of one that has happened. As if is, there isn’t one player they could offer that would be worth accepting in PX.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 18:28:01
Also why would we accept Barcelona cast offs, not good enough for them then not good enough for us!


3.) 12 Nov 2017 19:01:37
well said Baz2.

4.) 12 Nov 2017 19:09:56
Barca pulling their dirty tricks again. We don't want their dross, period. Either they pay up in straight cash or the can jog on.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 19:29:48
Coutinho wasn't good enough at Inter when we got him. I know he was young, be he still wasn't good enough. The difference between good enough and not is sometimes as simple as showing confidence in the player.

6.) 12 Nov 2017 19:52:49
But we don’t need him! Do we? So what should we do with Coutinho If Barcelona refuse to pay the asking price 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔. Keep an unwanted player at the club?

7.) 12 Nov 2017 20:31:44
Ed002 has said that Barcelona and not offering players as part of the deal at this stage and we would need to ask for players off there surplus list if we wanted a player included. I just hope we are not demanding to much money for Phil as we must sell him in January.

8.) 12 Nov 2017 20:54:39
Barcelona have probably been involved with biggest cash and player swap when they gave cash and Samuel eto for Ibrahimovic. that's the only one I can think of in recent times.

9.) 12 Nov 2017 21:01:46
If they don’t pay the asking price then tough. Maybe Couthino should go pleading to the Barcelona hierarchy asking them to pay up.

The whole player power thing is ridiculous and it’s time the club’s stood firm. Couthino wants to go to Barcelona, Barcelona want Couthino. Pay up or move on.

10.) 12 Nov 2017 21:04:57
Sergio Roberto
Ter Stegen

3 for 1 and where happy ;-)

11.) 12 Nov 2017 21:15:22
I’d take money and Innesta!

12.) 12 Nov 2017 21:29:50
But by the same token that we can attack well without him, I would make the following comments. Firstly without him we have no one who can score a free kick from outside the box, secondly he’s the best passer and play maker at the club, thirdly we shouldn’t sell for sellibgs sake, whoever buys him should pay a lot of money through the nose. And we should not accept any Barcelona player in PX.

13.) 12 Nov 2017 22:08:21
We will have a problem if Barcelona move on and buy someone else.

14.) 12 Nov 2017 23:22:27
No recent examples but remember the Samuel Eto'o / Ibrahimovic swap deal which was incredible at the time.

Also Owen/ Nunez deal for us.

15.) 13 Nov 2017 00:04:39
Mr. Dennis, we're not selling for selling sake, he wants to go and is sulking his way through the season. unless he is going to find some kind of bulldog deep down in his personality to actually not only perform but lift his team mates (which isn't his specialty anyways), then we really should be looking for the best deal for the club.

16.) 13 Nov 2017 01:42:14
Ok cheers bud just thought I’d throw it out there because they happen very rarely that’s all. I’d just want money to be honest and sort our holding midfielder and 2 centre half’s out if I’m honest. then i don’t think we would need to score a hatful to win every game cause I️ don’t now about you lot but I️ ain’t comfortable when we 3 nil up. lol😂.

17.) 13 Nov 2017 02:16:41
Need to remove the rotten apple before it affects the good ones.

18.) 13 Nov 2017 07:00:00
There is a solution, won't happen but it is there; those people talking on his behalf on social media in the summer could put out a few statements saying he is grateful for what LFC have done to develop his career and he wants the club to get good money from any sale. Like I say won't happen but could if they really wanted to.

19.) 13 Nov 2017 08:14:30
Or we sent a mail to Barcelona to take the unwanted player form us for a very huge sum ☺️☺️. We could also give them Markovic on free, they might need a winger 😌😌😌😌.

20.) 13 Nov 2017 09:45:03
No one to score from free kicks? I must’ve imagined Trent’s goal against Hoffenheim then.



02 Nov 2017 22:17:59


{Ed002's Note - Take it to the Right club’s page - this is the Liverpool page.}

1.) 02 Nov 2017 23:16:05
Sorry bud my bad.



22 Sep 2017 04:55:17
I know it's wishful thinking but I would love it if we could sign cavani January. we hearing from the press that his nose has been put out of joint by neymar. so maybe worth a punt. good work horse up top and he'd Finnish off most things we create in attack. Any chance eds or am I just dreaming 👍.


{Ed001's Note - you said it yourself in your first five words.}

1.) 22 Sep 2017 05:59:31
A lesser version would be Jamie Vardy! Not a favorite on this page but he is ideal for the way we play. High press and has blistering pace. Sweet left foot and is a poacher. Except his stinking attitude ofcourse ( but then who is VVD ) lol.

{Ed001's Note - but he is absolutely not ideal, his game is about long balls from deep over the top for him to run onto. We already have Mane and Salah for that. We do not need Vardy.}

2.) 22 Sep 2017 06:45:11
I want Edin Dzeko then. he offers a clear mode B of opertaions. but may be too old now. very under rated though throughout his career.

{Ed001's Note - or just not as good as a couple of good spells of scoring make him look? Not a fan personally, he has a terrible attitude and only performs when he feels like it, which is why he is rated so lowly. People see the many terrible lacklustre performances and so assume that is his actual level of ability.}

3.) 22 Sep 2017 06:59:51
A fully fit Danny Ings. But then we don't even know if he would ever make it again!

4.) 22 Sep 2017 07:03:24
so who would you want ed001 hypothetically? not that we need one, we have bobby put he needs to get his hoffenheim boots on. i think he scored 20+ in both seasons with hoffenheim.

{Ed001's Note - I don't see a need to buy a forward right now, we have plenty of attacking options. We need defensive additions, not more forwards.}

5.) 22 Sep 2017 07:04:14
I'd rather see us recruit at the other end of the field.

We don't need anymore attackers IMO.

6.) 22 Sep 2017 07:15:13
The very man who belittled and criticised Liverpool when Suarez wanted to go to Arsenal for the 40 mill plus the 1p?
No thanks mate.
Him and Neymar can keep their toy throwing firmly in Paris.

7.) 22 Sep 2017 07:27:02
Cavani, Dzeko? Vardy? Wow, really scraping near the bottom of the barrel with these guys, really. Their attitude stinks and there is a reason Dzeko was called The Lamp-post. Like Ed said, we don't need a striker BUT clearly, that won't stop this debate as it as heen litigated ad nauseum already.

8.) 22 Sep 2017 08:00:39
Firmino? Mane? Salah? Sturridge? Coutinho? Chamberlain? Lallana? Solanke? Ings? Origi? Woodburn? Kent? Wilson? Ojo? Brewster?

Nah. We have more than enough forward players capable of lining up in various different ways. Let's not get silly again. Maybe try different tactics in certain games, but we most certainly do not have a personnel shortage, nor are we lacking in goal scorers! There are 8 players there who have hit double figures at senior level. Klopp just needs to get the best out of them. Which he is, contrary to how blinkered a couple of games in which we failed to take our chances might make some peoples opinions.

9.) 22 Sep 2017 08:34:47
Cavani and Dzeko? Have they played Centre Back before? Just imagine Ron! Instead of 2-8 it would be 0-10! Exciting stuff! 😉.

10.) 22 Sep 2017 08:39:32
This thread was about a poster who wanted to ask the editor a simple question on how about recruiting striker in January? The super pundits have thrown him out of the door and I can assure he would never even dare to ask another question on the page 😄😄.

11.) 22 Sep 2017 08:53:48
Bet you're wrong - 1 million, billion, trillion, bajillion cola bottles in fact?

Hey guys stroke of genius here why don't why buy that Rickie lambert fella? He's a Liverpool fan I've heard he could be a great impact sub.

14.) 22 Sep 2017 09:55:30
Remove 'of genius' and your post is more apt.

15.) 22 Sep 2017 11:25:29
Oh, stop talking forwards! Defenders, defenders, defenders are what we should be looking at.

16.) 22 Sep 2017 15:43:59
We play a 2 8 formation need a sitting midfielder it's the most important position on the pitch in modern football when your playing full backs as wingers.



20 Aug 2017 13:17:35
What I don't understand about this couts saga is why didn't he put a release clause in his contract if he's been courting Barcelona all year🤔Think his agent has dropped a bollock there. and now he is paying for it.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly about "release" clauses - perhaps you should go and read up on it.}
