I'm sure this is all just hype after the couple of transfers to China, but Balotelli has been linked with a move to China.

Is there anything in this Eds?


{Ed001's Note - his agent would certainly like to get him a move out there, no idea if any of them are interested in him. They have shown little interest in lazy layabout players so far.}

1.) 20 Feb 2016 08:12:14
If they could potentially get him a deal would any China club pay us or would Milan buy him cheap and sell on straight away?

{Ed002's Note - Either way if it were to happen.}

2.) 20 Feb 2016 16:53:42
I'd be happy either way!

3.) 21 Feb 2016 04:54:50
Do you think his agent (Mino Raiola? ) will push for him to move out there? Surely it would be the best chance of a big payday for both agent and player? As well as probably the best financial option for Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - he will move here where he can get the best deal, which is likely to be China.}

Gary Mac confirmed first team coach.


1.) 11 Jul 2015 11:07:22
Great news! Garry Mac Garry Mac, Garry Garry Mac

2.) 11 Jul 2015 12:31:13
Great news knows our club and brings passion and professionalism

3.) 11 Jul 2015 16:18:57
Chuffed to bits, Class on and off the pitch he won't be doing any embarrassing shampoo adverts with Henderson either !

4.) 11 Jul 2015 18:05:17
Flash, I think Gary Mac used Wash & Go!

5.) 12 Jul 2015 01:02:44
Aye, he washed and it went!



31 May 2015 14:57:54
Eds, is Balotelli still of interest to Lazio in a loan to buy?

Also is there interest in Borini from Fiorentina?



{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will look to sell Balotelli in the summer but they need to reduce the price they are asking by some way. A number of clubs were approached in January but none were interested in a permanent deal at the price being asked. I suspect his representatives will focus on a return to Italy although have said how happy he is at Liverpool. Last year a sponsor tried to place him with another side once Milan were pissed at him and wanted him out - but that would no longer be an option. An alternative may be a Turkish side. Fiorentina and Inter were both open to discussing a deal for Balotelli - but the asking price has killed any chance of that, but Sampdoria would be interested in taking him on loan, or perhaps to buy at the right price. We'll see what happens.

Lazio were showing an interest in Borini, but it is unclear if they will push for a move. His representatives are aware that they need to look for options.}}

1.) 31 May 2015 15:12:02
Kovacic for balotelli would have been rreally Great :'-( Ed2 Do you know if the talk about the second bid for kovacic was bull ir something genuine?? If not are we still interested

{Ed002's Note - I explained about the bid and the joke made.}

2.) 31 May 2015 15:22:17
Thanks Ed002.



25 Jan 2015 16:18:28
Hello Eds, I don't usually get any info from people, regarding Liverpool, but I do have a friend who lives in Italy who is apparently close to someone at Lazio and he thinks they're in for Balotelli. Just wondering if you had heard anything of this sort?



{Ed002's Note - Lazio would be interested in Balotelli on a loan deal or at a price which is 35% of the asking price. There is no offer on the table but they may try to tempt Liverpool.}

1.) 25 Jan 2015 16:46:02
Eds surely the club know where going to have to take a loss on him

{Ed002's Note - The club have a price in mind - this has been done to death.}

2.) 25 Jan 2015 19:12:41
I would take the 35% and be grateful to get that much.

3.) 25 Jan 2015 19:51:44
We bit the bullet with Carroll. Looks like we will have to do it again.

4.) 25 Jan 2015 20:16:20
Hi Ed's, Ballotelli is a quality player, just not suited to the style of Liverpool. I assume that rather than unwilling he is unable to adapt to the demands of the team. Also being a high profile player with a massive ego, the danger is he will bring negativity to the dressing room. With so many young players in the squad, that is something we could do without. Therefore, a compromise for his exit should be reached.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool would be happy to see him move on but I am not sure who the compromise would be with?}

5.) 26 Jan 2015 04:30:50
I'm shocked. Thanks Ed002, I guess if I hear any more I'll pass it on. Hopefully this isn't just a lucky guess from him lol.

6.) 26 Jan 2015 15:54:59
This is Nonsense. We played our best game against spurs. Sterling, Balotelli, Sturridge.

{Ed001's Note - so what is your point? We have been hawking Balo around for months now, so what is that to do with one, yes one, good performance?}

7.) 26 Jan 2015 17:49:38
The team performance against Spurs was good, but was Balotelli? 5 shots, 2 on target, 0 goals, 0 assists, an astonishingly bad 50% pass completion and hauled off at 60 minutes for Markovic.



01 Aug 2014 01:25:53
Hello Eds, any interest in Jovetic? I've always like him as a player since he smashed us at Fiorentina in the 2009/10 CL.
And given he's barely had a look in at City, mainly due to injury of course, I thought he may possibly be on the cards to leave City.

Sorry to just throw a random name out there Eds, I know even if he is available, he may be too expensive but there is no harm in asking I guess? ^_^



{Ed001's Note - nope.}

It's not the end of the world that we lost, we'll get a bit of stick from rival fans, so too will Karius, but who cares? We showed throughout the competition that we are a force to be reckoned with.

The positives to take out of this are that we will learn from this experience, build on it and hopefully come back stronger. We've already got 1 addition coming in the summer, who looks a real talent. Hopefully we can add more to that and give it another real go.

I'd like to also say that I don't personally hold anything against Karius. I'm sure he knows how stupid the mistakes were. The important thing is, assuming he's kept on for next season as #1, we should support him 100. He's only 24 after all and playing in his first Champions League final.


1.) 26 May 2018 23:52:33
As the captain said after the game. "We win together, we lose together".
We are Liverpool. It's been an amazing journey. The games I've seen at anfield this year have been some of the best I've ever seen. Next season will be even greater. Let's stand behind our boys. I'm proud YNWA.

2.) 26 May 2018 23:52:37
He's not good enough simple as. If it was mignolet he'd be crucified. He had hands like crisp bags.

3.) 27 May 2018 00:03:31
Most sensible post of the evening. Exactly my thoughts. Bravo hsf, I hope regardless of the result, you've had a good night mate.

4.) 27 May 2018 00:07:52
Your assumption about him being kept as number 1 is a head scratcher having watched his last game. He is not a kid and shouldn’t be making mistakes like that at any level let alone 2 in a final and they were both very different mistakes which says to me he is way out of his league. He didn’t do them deliberately obviously so abuse to him is very wrong. Klopp will move him on and by doing so will for once admit he’s dropped a bollock.

5.) 27 May 2018 00:17:33
Fraid not mate, I don’t mind no much that we lost because I wasn’t expecting to win, but the bearing in mind we would have been at 1-1 without our best player were it not for two absolute world class howlers, I think we can be a little annoyed about the manner of the loss. I think Karius had improved a lot but the jury was still out and after a performance like that on the biggest stage, I just don’t see a way back for him. His nerves will be shot to bits. The difference between being a good player and a great player is consistency. Karius has proven himself to another Migs IMO. Capable of great saves and unimaginable mistakes. I’d prefer Butland at this point.

6.) 27 May 2018 00:29:16
Agreed, this should be Karius' last game for us. He'll have those two cock ups with him forever so we need to move him on. I've supported him till now but GK is the position that's holding us back I'm afraid so we need to get in the best man for the job before we can take the next step up.

7.) 27 May 2018 02:37:36
Who do you get though? Bomb out Mignolet and Karius? Have you seen much of Butland lately? He hasn't looked so hot since he came back from injury. Take a look at the goal he conceded against League 2s Coventry to see Stoke out of the cup and Hughes out of a job.



02 May 2018 16:40:32
Irrespective of what tonights result is, whether Roma stage one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history, or whether Liverpool gothrough to their 21st European competition final, we should just enjoy the ride. These things never last forever, so we should not take them for granted and just enjoy the big games we've been having, the football we're playing and the footballers we get to watch week in week out!


1.) 02 May 2018 17:10:13
Well said hsf.

2.) 02 May 2018 17:42:38
Oh behave! We need to win to show something for the effort put in otherwise it's futile.

3.) 02 May 2018 18:14:27
Nope, OP. That is a defeatist attitude that you should never consider. We have a THREE goal lead and if we screw it up, it will be the worst bottle job in our history, IMO. Barcelona bottled it BUT we are not them and I don't care what they did or in this case, did not do. Take inspiration from Klopp's words: "We have to write our own history". Use that as inspiration to stare down Roma and not blink. Our boys, manager and fans have worked too hard and for too long, to finish at the last hurdle b4 the final. I know you have nerves BUT if you let them take over your reasoning then that was your choice. I propose you don't make that choice.

4.) 02 May 2018 18:17:26
I really don't get the "we should enjoy the ride" or "no-one though we could go this far".
Maybe no-one did. I certainly didn't. But it doesn't negate the fact that we're 5-2 up and shouldn't lose the tie.
If we don't go through, I'll be massively disappointed that we threw the opportunity away.
However, I know we'll go through, so I'm not worried in the least.

5.) 02 May 2018 18:17:31
I agree Marshy. This club should be about winning trophies. We should easily get thru with a 3 goal lead and i will be gutted if we dont.

6.) 02 May 2018 19:33:33
I don't see how it's a defeatist attitude. It wasn't that long ago we nearly went ceased to exist as a club, so I'm just going to enjoy what we're doing at the moment and if we fail, I just hope we learn from it and improve next year.



20 Apr 2018 10:55:54
End of an era at Arsenal and Arsen Wenger is stepping down at the end of the season.

Irrespective of what's happened in the last couple of years, I think it's safe to say the man is a legend with in football.


1.) 20 Apr 2018 11:33:36
Ah noway, always had a lot of respect for Wenger over the years he's done Arsenal proud, sure they've fell off a bit but he's been a good manager over the time he's been there. It'll be interesting to see who they appoint to replace him.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 11:52:53
Whilst I feel sad for the man, the time is right. He's been such a fantastic manager in the PL era (up there alongside Whiskeynose *spit*! ), especially in his first 9-10 seasons, Arsenal have been on the slide for a while now and it would be awful to tarnish his tenure any further.

Was chatting with an Arsenal mate of mine, and I would look at the following:

Tuchel - young but experienced with a relatively large club

Howe - younger, but PL experience and I like the sort of football Bournemouth are playing - would be good to see him given the chance with a better squad.

Or, my personal favourite (and a dark horse) - Rafa! Don't get me wrong, it pains me every time I see Rafa managing other teams, but I do think he was on the verge of something special with us 10 years ago, only to be crippled by the financial constraints of Waldorf and Statler. I think he could build the next Arsenal legacy over the next 10 or so years, if the owners back him.

What's everyone else's views? And Eds as well if they have time?

{Ed001's Note - Nagelsmann.}

3.) 20 Apr 2018 12:02:50
Do you think Nagelsmann would suffer being in the glare with Arsenal as much as he will do? I know he's achieved an amazing amount at Hoffenheim given his age, but I just think the spotlight glare of the PL could be too much for him right now, and he may need to build to that sort of pressure.

Would he risk doing a Vilas-Boas? Although I don't know that much about him, especially his character, hence the questions!

{Ed001's Note - I think he would be fine there as the board would stand behind him, I hope.}

4.) 20 Apr 2018 12:03:32
I think a lot of arsenal fans will rue this day, even those against Wenger. I wonder f they’ll give the new appointment a real chance or follow the modern football style of sack sack sack.

5.) 20 Apr 2018 12:07:39
I don’t think they can afford to go with an unproven manager. After years of relative lack of success they will do what was tried with Moyes, Rogers, Martinez. You need quality. It doesn’t mean they have had to have won the CL but they need signs of quality. I think they will go for someone like Allegri. The question is can they compete with the likes of Chelsea and PSG?

6.) 20 Apr 2018 12:37:49
Typo. I mean to say they will NOT do what was done with Rogers etc.

7.) 20 Apr 2018 16:28:32
It will be interesting to see how the Arsenal board act in the coming seasons with regards to standing behind a manager. Wenger did so much for the club that they had to back him until he left imo. Who knows, they might become another Chelsea and have a new manager every year!

8.) 20 Apr 2018 16:49:55
I sincerely hope arsenal do not get the Hoffeheim coach as I hold him in very high regard and I feel at Arsenal he would do some wonderful things given time and backing
knowing Arsenal they will go safe and get the Monaco coach.

9.) 20 Apr 2018 17:14:55
I know he's young and very inexperienced, but I have a strong gut feeling that Thierry Henry is going to get the job. I've had that feeling for over a year when Wenger leaving arsenal has been uttered.
If he does, only time will tell if he's the right man.

10.) 20 Apr 2018 19:57:38
I don't think wenger has ever been in the same class as fergie. I love his style of football but man, fergie won the league untold amount of times, how many times did we get win it? What? Twice.

11.) 20 Apr 2018 19:58:27
Never won the european Cup, despite having the best team in Europe. I felt sorry for him when the arsenal fans turned on him but I don't like people equating him to Alex ferguson. There is no equation.

12.) 20 Apr 2018 21:24:31
It's about DAMN time, IMO. Wenger should have gone a decade ago as they have been stuck in neutral since then (went a good NINE seasons w/ o winning a thing) and for the past 3 years, they have been in free fall.

13.) 21 Apr 2018 11:07:31
Arsenal have a beautiful stadium, fans all over the world, financial stability (more or less) some very good players and a real strong pulling power. They have under achieved for years now and that has to be down to wenger.

As a liverpool fan I would love arsenal to stick with wenger. They have everything (almost) in place to mount a title challenge and definitely a top 4 challenge. 3/ 4 players away from a very tasty little team.

14.) 21 Apr 2018 12:11:38
Not me, SS. Wenger should have been gone a decade ago and IMO, he is the ONE who has held them back from winning the PL cos it was always about him to the point that many of their fans call him a dictator or Mugabe. They are a worse team than they were just 2 years ago when we were behind them and now, they can't see our dust. Why? A combination: Klopp is class AND most importantly, Wenger has been regressing for years.

Pfft, you have obviously not been around here very long. I remember the days of Ian Ayre walking down the street, dropping his brief case and all the paper work falling out, a gust of wind catching the very piece of paper that was a copy of an official offer to Atletico Madrid for Aguero.
The good old days.

Reina was probably our best GK on a technical level. But in terms of overall I would say Clemence.


{Ed0333's Note - Grobs would give you heart palpitations every game one minute he could be the best keeper in the world and then then he’d do something so outrageously risky you’d be tearing your heart out. Clemence was a lot more conservative but don’t sacrifice any ability. Gave the defense a calming influence and when he was needed did his job with aplomb. Exactly what we need now. I would say Reina was a sexier version of Clemence they were in the same mould. But Clemence for me all day long.

Boofs Brother, what? Went missing in big games? Did you see him and Firmino against City for the last 3 years? Or how about when Phil dominated Chelsea at Stamford bridge all by himself?
Coutinho had the occasional cold patch yes, but to say he went missing in big games.
