eds is quincy promes a realistic target for January?


{Ed002's Note - This would be to replace Mance for three matches or so? Then what?

Quincy Promes has been watched over the past 18 months or so by Inters, Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle, Liverpool, Dortmund, Al Ain and Southampton. Interest of Bayern Munich and Juventus (both of whom saw him as squad padding) was ended when quoted €32M by Spartak before Christmas 2015 but they became aware of a third party that might have a claim on the player and might need to be paid off. This has pushed the asking price to an unrealistic €45M - enought to make Spurs drop any thoughts about trying to negotiate a deal. A new contract has recently been signed but Spartak would be keen to sell in January.}

1.) 06 Dec 2016 16:09:49
By spartak buying ALEXANDR SAMEDOV does that move the QUINCY PROMES transfer on or am I barking up the wrong tree.

{Ed002's Note - Read the post.}

2.) 06 Dec 2016 16:17:39
Holy Mackeral!

3.) 06 Dec 2016 17:00:00
Hello Ed,
A few rumours floating around of our interest in Virgil Van Djik and his rumoured 25M£ release clause. Is the price tag true?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know about the release clause but there will be enough interest in him from clubs that the price will likely run higher.}

4.) 06 Dec 2016 17:41:48
ed002 thanks for the reply, this site is the reason I don't buy newspapers. Safe travels, thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet - do you have an aunt still alive?}

5.) 06 Dec 2016 23:57:58
Azmoun or Quincy, which one is better?

6.) 06 Dec 2016 22:47:58
I've been reading this site since it was just football-rumours. My first ever post is purely because that is my favourite ever ed002 response of the last eight years!

7.) 08 Dec 2016 16:49:58
LEEKUANYEW, PROMES is a better more end product and assists, an all-round better player, AZMOUN would probably struggle to get game time with us.

8.) 09 Dec 2016 13:41:10
Never watched Quincy play tbh with ya, but I can tell you if his Fut 17 card is anything to go by he's one hell of a player;)



25 Jul 2016 00:34:28
Rumours gathering pace that Liverpool will make one final offer of £8m to Leicester for ben chilwell.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 07:14:34
I love it when rumours gather pace 😅.

2.) 25 Jul 2016 09:47:28
Not seen him myself, but happy to go with all what people say. If we don't get him now and he plays well next season for whoever he could be worth the kind of fee Luke Shaw went for? He wants to come so let's get it done so we can move on, as I think that might be our lot! Would just be mainly selling or maybe a few kids?

3.) 25 Jul 2016 11:29:45
I've no problem with bringing Chilwell in but only if he's one of 2 left backs coming in.
By all accounts he has great potential but at 19 and with very little appearances under his belt is he suitable backup/ replacement for Moreno.
I believe Moreno is our weak link however perhaps Klaven can fit in there when needed.

4.) 25 Jul 2016 12:07:11
Don't worry too much about little prem experience. Rob Jones, Jon Flannaghan, Luke Shaw etc etc the list goes on. Young quality can do well and it's no different to buying an expensive 'known' full back from Spain, France or Brazil as they too have no prem experience and can also fail.

If people in the game who have seen players come through and know their stuff tip this guy then it should be enough.

He could be bad just as much as he could be amazing, that can be anyone we bring in, so just trust it's a good choice and we have good coaches,

5.) 25 Jul 2016 13:32:38
I wouldn't expect him to come straight in and replace Moreno, more challenge Moreno to up his game abit and give him maybe the same amount of game time as Smith last season and perhaps replace Moreno next season.

6.) 25 Jul 2016 13:58:29
Watched him vs Celtic and he`s already better than Moreno, the worst defensive liability I`ve ever seen.

7.) 25 Jul 2016 14:34:58
Willems is the better than chillwell imo though bc does have great potential.

8.) 26 Jul 2016 01:04:32
to anyone saying moreno is worst left back ever, can noone remember konchesky? although i do agree he isn't good enough, let's not put him that low.

9.) 26 Jul 2016 09:57:04
Worst left back has got to be Julian dicks for those of us who can remember.



16 May 2016 16:04:40
reports coming from Germany that loris karius has agreed terms with Liverpool, know anything about this ed? also it seems to me that klopp already has his targets in mind as we are not wasting time in getting players in, getting them out could be a bit trickier I feel. Roll on Wednesday the mighty reds in a European final again has a nice ring to it, winning the final will of course change the way we view the season and also return us to the champions league, where we have some making up to do after what happened the last time we were in it.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know any detail just that he was going to be more likely than Horn or ter Stegen. He is not a player Liverpool has shown any interest in during the season although it was thought that they could turn to him. Everton have looked at him on several occasions and Dortmund are looking for a replacement for Weidenfeller who can push Burki and are again looking at Karius. Spurs looked whilst there were concerns over Lloris not renewing his contract.}

1.) 16 May 2016 16:16:07
thanks for the reply ed002.

2.) 16 May 2016 20:14:44
hi does anyone no if it will be as 2choice or replace migs not seen anything of him a report off anyone would be good wats his good attributes cheers.

3.) 16 May 2016 20:34:28
Ed002 has said for a long time that we are looking for a keeper to challenge Mignolet mike g so there's your answer.

4.) 16 May 2016 18:26:26
Someones having fun on wiki - apparently Karius is 3.6m tall - should be able to command his box then lol.



10 Feb 2016 15:42:26
ed 2 do you expect joel matip to announce on Friday he has agreed to join lfc? also not lfc related but do you have any info as to where pelligrini will end up next year? thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - I don't expect any announcement from Joel Matip on Friday KK. There is no information on where Pellegrini will move to next season but I suspect he might well end up at a club that still has a contracted manager such as Atletico Madrid if Simeone were to leave or perhaps as one of the three to be considered by Juventus if Allegri were to leave.}

1.) 10 Feb 2016 17:16:10
thanks for the reply ed.

2.) 11 Feb 2016 05:07:04
Hi Ed's

How about Rafa Benitez? Will he come back to PL?

Any club looking at him?

On a different note when I asked if Ed's had any updates on Rafa's next destination, I was told to go to Real Madrid page but however above I see open discussion about Simone, Pellegrini and Allegri.

{Ed001's Note - he is not coming to Liverpool but he wants an English club. He did have talks with Valencia but is not going there either.}

3.) 11 Feb 2016 05:23:33
Strange. I would think Valencia is perfect for him after the poor start by Neville.

{Ed001's Note - with Peter Lim in charge using it as a clearing house for Jorge Mendes players? No one in their right mind with more than two brain cells to rub together is going to take it. Why on earth do you think Neville got the job in the first place?}

4.) 11 Feb 2016 05:27:30
any English club ed or has he one in mind. arsenal perhaps?

{Ed001's Note - there is nothing brewing right now for him, the sporting director of Valencia tried to get him to agree a deal but he turned it down, but there has been no Prem approach, yet anyway.}

5.) 11 Feb 2016 06:40:38
Thanks Ed1.

Yes, it was a real shock seeing Gary Neville getting a manager job without any exp or knowledge of local language.

{Ed001's Note - he only got it as he is Peter Lim's mate and no one else wants it, otherwise he would be gone by now.}

6.) 11 Feb 2016 10:37:58
Aye Ed is right, the Salford City connections.

7.) 11 Feb 2016 11:09:23
Benitez for Chelsea.

8.) 11 Feb 2016 15:20:25
So, anyway. About Matip. He's rejected Schalke's contract offer. But they're still in de nile. Are there other clubs interested in signing him Eds or is Anfield his likely destination?

Huh? Benitez for Chelsea? No chance.
I could see him somewhere like Everton or Southampton, if either of them end up without a manager. Or, seeing as there's likely to be a managerial merry-go-round this year. Perhaps as the next Watford or Leicester boss?

9.) 11 Feb 2016 17:11:06
they say never rule anything out, but if rafa became everton manager it would be a bigger shock to me than Leicester winning the title.

10.) 12 Feb 2016 12:36:45
De nile is nowhere near Schalke. its in Egypt.

11.) 12 Feb 2016 13:10:14
Love it Zimbo.

22 Mar 2017 18:57:38
ed002 even though we still have 2 months of the season left we are already hearing of players agreeing personal terms on perspective moves for next season, is this just agents sounding out clubs or clubs encouraging interest? what is the normal protocol that avoids accusations of tapping up?


{Ed002's Note - If a club speaks directly with a player without the permission of his club then that is "tapping up". Agents and clubs meet and talk regularly and clubs will enquire if a player might be interested in a move, what sort of deal he would want etc..

Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak formally to a player's agent and possibly even the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the club, the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the fee and the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.}

1.) 22 Mar 2017 19:15:02
thanks for clearing that up ed002, appreciate it.

2.) 23 Mar 2017 21:41:27
"Tapping up" rules are completely obsolete in the modern game with practically every player having an agent who can "indicate" the level (expected wage) of a players interest.



22 Mar 2017 13:43:23
I would just like to pay tribute to Ronnie Moran, his contribution to Liverpool fc is incaluable a true LEGEND has passed away but his dna runs right through the football club and he will never be forgotten, thank you for all you did for Liverpool, Ronnie Moran a true gentleman in every sense of the word.


1.) 22 Mar 2017 14:33:52
He was a lovely man, he always took the time to talk to me.

2.) 22 Mar 2017 15:04:14
Part of the fabric of Liverpool FC. We wouldn't be the club we are without Ronnie.

3.) 22 Mar 2017 17:46:48
A great man. Could use more like him.

YNWA Ronnie.

4.) 22 Mar 2017 18:33:01
how fitting that our next match is the derby, I trust the kop will pay a fitting tribute to the great man.

5.) 22 Mar 2017 22:14:26
Thank you Ronnie.




20 Mar 2017 04:24:05
we really need coutinho and firmino to get out of this slump they are currently in and show the form they showed last year, we are not shy as fans to give can, wijnaldum, klavan, milner and mignolet plus lucas to name some of our favourite whipping boys a hard time when there form is not up to scratch, so let's not let these 2 off the hook, getting them back in form will go a long way to ensuring a top 4 finish. We know what they are capable off we really need them both to start showing it again.


{Ed001's Note - seriously? They both had good games last night and caused City nightmares at times. Why would we want to get on their backs as they come back into form?}

1.) 20 Mar 2017 04:38:39
Was not impressed with Coutinho last night. Lost the ball too many times in spite of taking few risks. Firmino was good though, pressed a lot and got into goal scoring positions. Just needs to work on his composure in front of goal a little.

2.) 20 Mar 2017 04:48:17
I will have to disagree with you there ed001, coutinho has not played well since his return from injury and firmino once again was found lacking when he had a great chance to make it 2-0, this is not a witch hunt I just personally feel both players can do better as they have shown in the past, looking forward to reading your match review as always ed001.

{Ed001's Note - I am just rewatching the game and doing the match review now. It is past the point where Couts went off and I thought he did well, but was let down by the finishing. Still not at his best, but he played some good balls, made some good runs but was never really given space or time on the ball by City. Firmino was excellent, bar his finishing, but it is a bit harsh to have a go at a player who has played so well. On another day he will score goals galore, he just needs one to go in off his backside or something to give him a lift.}

3.) 20 Mar 2017 05:07:57
that's where I feel both players need to improve ed001, firmino should really be bagging 15-20 goals a season he has all the attributes required to do so, his finishing does seem to be eratic at times I felt he should have lifted it over the keeper coutinho on his day can win a match all on his own. As I have said this is not me taking the chance to slag them off, its just frustration talking as I know what both players are capable off.

{Ed001's Note - yes, they can improve, but their performances have been getting better and yet now you choose to dig them out. If they were playing poorly and not showing signs of improvement, you would have a point, but they are playing better by the game, so why complain?}

4.) 20 Mar 2017 06:17:27
i thought origi on the wing was awful and he looked clueless. firmino is not a good striker, he's being wasted in that role while also taking someone elses chance. wijnaldum looks like an upgrade on lallana, klopp must be over the moon with his new workhorse. i think we should drop continho and put firmino in his role. then bring on continho as a super sub with a point to prove. i think we should keep alternating between the 2 to see who wants it more. I doubt it will ever happen because it would upset the players. we don't want that do we. we have to keep everyone thinking their spot is safe and become complacent.

5.) 20 Mar 2017 06:32:25
Kingkenny, to say "so let's not let these 2 off the hook", sets the tone for your views. What? we should lay into them cos' they deserve it? What's that supposed to achieve besides provide a platform for the plastics to rant?

6.) 20 Mar 2017 06:53:18
Had we won the game Iam 100% sure a diffrent tune on both players would be ung, both played well last night, give them support.

7.) 20 Mar 2017 06:55:17
i kinda agree with wiseryan, about the rotation. with coutinho on the bench and dropping him in midfield or wide left seeing who of Lallana or frimoho of Orgi who needs replacing. That said that city game could of gone any which way.

8.) 20 Mar 2017 09:32:03
You could give some credit for Pep and Fernandinho who kept Couts very quite. Not many players could do that. They knew the threat and played him over Sagna.
Couts should move in to the middle, We badly need a left winger with pace and trickery!

9.) 20 Mar 2017 09:33:34

A point to prove? Fernandinho is the best city player and tbh the only player who could have kept Couts quite and they know the threat. Firmino on the flanks is dreadful as good as Sturridge on the flanks. We need a left winger. An actual left winger, someone like me.

10.) 20 Mar 2017 10:00:19
we also need a world class striker for next season, its obvious sturridge won't be here next year.

11.) 20 Mar 2017 10:22:40
we got a point at City which at the start of the season you would have jumped to get, Now again i come o this site which i love and i like the diverse reactions and opinions, but the same poster are bashing players. If their usual victims have a good game they just move on to another player they are never satisfied enough to say what a good point, I have to question their loyalties as fans.
On Coutinho i would say he got physically dominated at times by a physical midfielder playing right back but i thought he had a good game and worked hard. On Firminio whom is not a number 9 you have to realise what he brings to that team to really appreciate him, in my opinion he is the player tat is key to the press and like the great Ian Rush he starts our defence from the front, he also had a good game and you guys just don't appreciate the off the ball work enough to realise it.

12.) 20 Mar 2017 11:50:03
his finishing is nothing like the great Ian Rush if it was the whole of Europe would be trying to sign him. Coutinho was poor again imo, after he was subbed last match for a 17yr old I expected him to come out all guns blazing yesterday he didn't, I am giving my opinions not slagging off players for the sake of it, these are our most talented players and if we can get them back into form we can qualify without being nervous for the champions league.

13.) 20 Mar 2017 12:46:45
I'm with ed on this one, Cout in the first half was as poor as usual but really upped his game in the second half and was the player instigating most of our attacks, it looked like he had his confidence back in how he was taking players on with ease again.

I certainly feel he'll be back to his best soon and benching him is not the why to go about it, I personally thought Firmino was playing worse than him in the second half and really needs to improve his consistency in finishing if he is to nail down the number 9 role.

14.) 20 Mar 2017 13:00:09
you see kenny you read what i wrote and took your own opinion from it i compared Firminio to Rush because he starts the press and defends from the front i never once mentioned his finishing. as for Coutinho you need to loo at city squad and realise fernandinho was played there to do a job on continho he was even moved to midfield after coutinho was taken off, on another day he would haved recieved a yellow card for at least one of the tackles on coutinho, but yet as poor as you said he was i thought he was still a threat and Guardiola must have agreed to take their best defensive midfielder to do a job on coutinho.

{Ed001's Note - one yellow? Fernandinho should have got 4 or more! I have no idea what he would have had to do to get booked but it would probably involve public beheading. Even that might have just got him a tallking to with Oliver in charge.}

15.) 20 Mar 2017 14:49:06
Firmino is an excellent CF and while not the most clinical finisher (but still better than most! ) he creates so many chances and is so key defensively I'd be happy to play him every day until we can get a real world class finisher. He had two good chances of his own yesterday and set up a few for others, not least of which was a sitter for Llalana on the back of his clever movement and first touch.

What he does need however is for others around him to be on form as the goals need to be shared around. Coutinho is still working his way back to form but even then I'm not 100% sure that LW is his best position - I could really see him playing midfield over time and another Mane style player on the left (if we can find one) .

16.) 20 Mar 2017 14:57:40
I was really dissapointed yesterday.

As individuals there were some good moments, but as a team i thought we were terrible for the most part. couldn't steing 2 passes together apart from the odd flash. The press wasnt there as a unit. Every player was struggling to make simple 5 yard passes. They looked knackered tbh.

Good result but i've seen us play like this before under rodgers where we got the result or should of had more but just couldn't get into 2nd gear

The same last week against burnley and we won. So its all good at the momebt.

My point i guess is with 10 games to go i don't see us getting into a run like chelsea are on where there good results turn into a real great end to the season

Im going for 4 wins 3 draws and 3 loses.

71 points total.

Will that be enough. Fingers crossed.

17.) 20 Mar 2017 16:46:20
For me couts is better in the centre. Firmino is very good but sometimes wasteful and gets caught you wonder if he will get you 20 a season? But i will always remember a few of the dribbles couts has done from deep in the middle and when he has movement infront of him his passing sometimes is unreal. He is good on the left i just think really you move him to the centre and if we bought another winger, or maybe used youth/ marko on the left i think we would have a really nice attacking trio but then you have to choose only 2 MF if we have firmino up top. I think studge will go tbh i love him but doesn't look like he will get a game.

thought the team played well, it was an open game and could have gone either way, will take the point.

Was impressed with GiGi, i have been fairly critical but the last few perfomances he has been so good. Definitely settling in and getting more invovled and is scoring some goals!

18.) 21 Mar 2017 10:54:21
Supermane, BR should be left where he is as he has no bearing on how good or bad we do. I'll take the point cos they could have won it like we could have. That's football.
KK, steady on there, lad. Couts may not have been at his best but it was a marked improvement from his recent perfs of late. Fernandinho is a very physical DM and he was plaed there as RB to nullify Couts cos Pep knew neither Zab nor Sagna could deal with his pace and trickery. Also, both Fernadinho and Couts play for Brazil so he will know his game thru and thru.

In spite of all that, Couts played in som good balls and had his shot gone in or had Firmino converted his blind pass, you're not here complaining and slating him. Same for Firmino. You do know that he only trained two days before the game and was prolly still carrying an injury and in spite of all that, he had a great game due to his movement, skill, guile and intelligence. Had Lallana not missed a sitter and had he got lucky with his shot, you're not complaining either. You are entitled to your opinion BUT a little context is required.



08 Mar 2017 16:45:16
ed001 in light of emre can's contract situation would you personally keep him or let him go?


{Ed001's Note - sell him for me. If he hasn't signed a new one by the time the window opens, then he has to be sold.}

1.) 08 Mar 2017 17:10:37
Dont think we should sell him people slate him way too much, more than he deserves and forget he still a very young player. In a few years he could be one of the best in europe.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 17:34:41
the problem is, due to various situations he has not nailed down a position, a jack of all trades but a master of none, if he does not want to sign the contract we are offering him, we should sell him imo.

3.) 08 Mar 2017 18:24:44
Players should not be allowed to hold the club ransom. If he is going to do that then let's cash in on him. The highest bidder wins the prize.

{Ed025's Note - the way he has performed this season max, that could be anything from £17-50 to £125 mate.. :)

4.) 08 Mar 2017 19:32:33
No man holds the club ransom let him go and let Marco have a pop I really rate the lad and abit gutted he hasn't had a run not even in the cup.

5.) 08 Mar 2017 21:24:03
In a few years he could also become a Jay Spearing. Sell him if the money is right and add up all those to reinforce defense.

6.) 08 Mar 2017 21:28:02
I don't think he will be missed even though I rate him.

7.) 08 Mar 2017 23:57:55
Marco Grujic has been out injured for a good while Jamesy, although he's almost back now. Looked good in pre season, and hopefully he will live up to his potential.

8.) 08 Mar 2017 18:54:28
Ha ha Ed025. Going by what we got for players like Jordan Ibe and Brad smith last summer who were not 1st team regulars, I am pretty sure whoever wants Can will need to pay up. He has all the potential in the world to become a solid player so Liverpool +1 in that regard. German International too.

9.) 08 Mar 2017 19:48:03
Ed025 £125? You've got money to burn lad.

{Ed025's Note - love it dec..

10.) 09 Mar 2017 12:20:04
CyKlopps, Can is not a 'very young' player. 'Very young' is teenagehood, when many players make their debuts. Can is 23. He is not 'very young' anymore, he is an adult.



11 Feb 2017 19:52:05
that performance has been a long time coming, now we need to use that as a bench mark for the rest of the season.

I suspect the same fate awaits danny ings, these serious injuries cost the players vital momentum, TAA has took advantage of Flanagan's situation and milner was given the left back spot, his loan move to burnley has been a disaster.

injuries are part and parcel of the game, this is where klopp earns his money, he has options it will be interesting to see what he comes up with, ironic that emre can has suddenly become a key player for us, especially if Henderson is also out injured.

perhaps klopp does not think we need any he does have 4 centre backs on his books, looks like a left back and goalkeeper will be bought first, we do need a left winger
so the perisic link makes sense, however I have not given up on signing brandt, we want quality we need top 4.


{Ed002's Note - Well I would not hold your breath over Perisic.}
