Hi eds
Just wanted to ask with regards to Allan who's on loan at Hertha, under what circumstances would he get a work permit and be eligible to play for us. Bit of a confusing area so just wondering you could list the possible circumstances
Cheers and keep up the good work


{Ed002's Note - He does not meet the work permit requirements so Liverpool would need to request a hearing to make a case for him as a "special talent" and they know that after lying to the committee last year about another player their brownie points will be used up. Hertha Berlin would loike to have him continue on loan and I suspect that is what will happen. Right now Liverpool is not well structured for looking after such players - something I would hope that they can address – but the addition of Grujic makes Allan’s long-term future as a Liverpool player in doubt.}

1.) 15 May 2017 21:43:28
Cheers ed2, does playing in European competitions help his case or just international appearances count?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

2.) 16 May 2017 03:32:57
Do you expect Grujic to kick on next season?

For me He needs to work on his core strength to build up the stamina for a premiership season.

Not just him though, all the other younger lads coming through will need the same as they appear very light

Bar Origi. he seems to be physically there but maybe his confidence needs a boost.

{Ed001's Note - stamina and strength is very rarely there at a young age, it is very easily developed, but it takes time. I don't see it as a problem.}

3.) 16 May 2017 13:59:09
What does Allan's future have to do with Grujic Ed002? They are both midfielders but that's the only thing they have in common. Two completely different type of players, its not a case of one or the other. Allan's direct competition at LFC will be Henderson and Chirivella.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool cannot keep adding midfield players to the squad without removing some. Allan likely has no future at Liverpool in any case. Try not to be an idiot about this.}

4.) 16 May 2017 14:33:25
IB, it is the work permit they have in common. Liverpool got a workpermit for Grujic due to promised playtime, a promise that wasnt kept.
Which obviously makes it hard to try and make the same promise again to get a work permit for Allan.

ED's please correct me if im wrong but this is how i understood things.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool know that a "special talent" nwork permit will be much harder to get after lying last time, yes. Add to that Allan will not be homegrown now and his chances diminesh.}

5.) 16 May 2017 15:19:35
Is it ability the reason behind you seeing no future for Allan or more circumstances around the permit? Surely if its ability there's no rush to judge, a young lad who's had appearances in a top league and would have played a lot more but for the u20 championships with Brazil.

{Ed002's Note - He does not qualify for a work permit. He is not home grown. I am not sure why I need say the same things over and over.}

6.) 16 May 2017 15:41:42
Hi Eds,

Knowing nothing about the subject myself, how should Liverpool be structured to handle these kinds of players. This is surely not a unique situation for Liverpool but for all clubs. A club as the size of Liverpool should have grasped this by now? Lack of future planning? and are they being addressed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but they are not.}

7.) 16 May 2017 17:46:21
With Stewart and Lucas due to leave this summer or next, and no one knowing how Henderson will be managed in the future would there not be space for him if he has a super season next year and gets his permit? think he looks a player.

{Ed002's Note - I can't see him getting in to the Brazil squad.}

8.) 16 May 2017 21:58:38
Would becoming a starter for Hertha and playing maybe 30-40 games for a team in a top league with European football at the age of 20 not be enough? Or does he HAVE to get into the Brazil squad?

{Ed002's Note - He does not meet the criteria for a work permit - you are clutching at straws.}



01 Feb 2014 15:26:02
Ed's do you think FSG are looking to sell LFC anytime soon, or are they here for the long run?
Please post


{Ed001's Note - I expect them to be here for the long run.}

1.) What are you smoking?

2.) 01 Feb 2014 17:44:20
why would we want them to sell they r moving the club in the right direction, to anyone wishing for them to sell up be careful what you wish for as imo these owners r very good at running a sports buisness and know how to be successful and in a business such as football there is going to be ups and downs and us as fans have to support imo the owners right down to the cashier in the in the shop all pulling in the same direction helps and that's what I see in r club at the min, I loved the other day the media for me were trying to make this story of how brendan was mad with the owners about transfers and brendan said how great they were and how much was going on behind the scene to make things happen in the way off transfers in, Ian ayre is getting some stick to but let's just hold back a bit on this as none of us really know what goes on in these negotiations, as far as I have read ian done his job yesterday everyone had agreed a deal was in place and the last detail the boss man would not sign off on it.

{Ed002's Note - You need to sign in.}

3.) 01 Feb 2014 18:12:38
sorry ed that was me not signed .

4.) 02 Feb 2014 07:07:57
I only ask because they seem to be doing all the right things to make us attractive.
1) Low wage bill
2) Over achieving for level of investment
3) High revenue
They have showed minimal if any faith in Brendan, with this stupid transfer committee and inability to complete "expensive" deals. They have invested on average £15m a transfer window. is this enough investment for a top 4 challenge?

{Ed002's Note - Which club are you talking about?}

5.) The 'transfer committee' is a direct result of Comolli/Dalglish running amok. The result of their profligacy is that the owners are hesitant and it will probably be a few years yet before they regain confidence.

6.) 02 Feb 2014 16:15:49
I am talking about Liverpool. on a Liverpool rumours site. :S

{Ed002's Note - IT doesn't seem like it.}

7.) Our wage bill is north of 100M. How is that low?

Overachieving? 5th highest turnover, 5th highest wage bill, spent over 100M on transfers since BR came in, yet finished 7th last season. How is that overachieving?

High revenue is I suppose somewhat true, but high degree of profitability is miles off the truth, I'm afraid.

For me, people just need to have realistic expectations. We should be, by wage bill, revenue, etc. about 5th which is about where we are. I'd say things are looking decent considering.

8.) I disagree, ill give them 5 years max then sell up.
Only time will tell though I guess.



17 Jan 2014 18:43:28
Hi Eds and fellow readers. donno what this means exactly but here it is

Demolition of Anfield Phase 6D

maybe an announcement on the stadium coming up?


1.) From the looks of it (although I can't vouch for the authenticity), that would be to demolish the houses behind Anfield Road.

Timeframe wise, that's a reasonible period in which to get the work done.

I would expect if all goes to plan, we may have a new main stand for 2015/2016.

2.) My dad sold his house 2 yrs ago. He lived on the corner of Anfield Rd and Lothair Rd. The club are going to build a new stand behind the main stand this will become the new Kop. They will rotate the pitch 90 degrees, which will allow for the kop and Anfield Rd to be extended.



15 Jan 2014 00:38:22
Hi Eds. just wanted to ask if there is any news on the search for a new MD, because Ian Ayre is obviously not the greatest MD in Football, is there any correlation between us and that Nicola Cortese might be leaving Southampton in the summer?


{Ed001's Note - nope and nope.}

1.) A Managing Director is for the whole year, not just transfer windows!

Sad truth, but there are some fans of Liverpool F.C that don't care how Ian Ayre does on a day to day basis for 7 months of the year. Liverpool could be closing on great revenue and marketing ventures and it wouldn't mean the damnedest of things, as long Mr Ayre signs players in the two windows.

I'm positive the club as a whole including Ian Ayre are working hard to get the right player/s that fit in with the clubs plans and importantly, that we can afford. Now if it doesn't happen and we have no new players this January then it won't be for lack of seeking a variety of options and exhausting them thoroughly. How many would willingly sell Suarez this month? No!? Okay, how about Sturridge?

2.) Had his criticism is pretty unfair. We need a new DM not a new MD. Jorginho would be great but he may prefer Napoli.

Hi eds, with Salah undergoing a medical I was wondering if you knew what kind of things players have to do during the medical, and what kind of tests are done?



{Ed025's Note - we are not doctors mate..only psychiatrists.. :)

1.) 22 Jun 2017 12:10:14
So where's the psychiatric facility and how can I get admitted there? 😂.

{Ed001's Note - you are well beyond help mate.}

2.) 22 Jun 2017 12:14:36
Reckon we'll all need therapy before the Summer's over!

3.) 22 Jun 2017 12:30:22
I reckon the poor Eds will need their own psychiatric assistance by the time this window is coming to an end. I predict nights interrupted by waking up in shivers from repeated question nightmares to begin with.

{Ed025's Note - thats everyday for us reynard..

4.) 22 Jun 2017 12:57:40
Can Imagine the facility patients going mad shaking in their chairs whispering "But they said it was a done deal" Haha.



23 May 2017 17:45:08
Hi eds hope you are well. Do you see FSG investing heavily in the squad this summer, and also do you think they will look to bring in another investor and sell some of their shares and get some return on their investment?
Cheers and keep up the good work


{Ed002's Note - They will make whatever money is needed available - given the additional income from television. So you don't need to worry about the money. I am not aware of any investor wanting to put money in to part of the club at this time.}

1.) 23 May 2017 22:16:49
You say any investor has no interest in investing into part of the club am I reading to much into it ed but would that mean that someone would be interested in buying all the club cheers eds sorry if it's a stupid question.

{Ed002's Note - There are no secret messages.}

2.) 24 May 2017 05:28:28
You say that Ed but all I can read is an anagram for "three secret sages see Moreno"

3.) 24 May 2017 09:51:26
fair play zimbo that is actually very impressive even robbing the extra e needed from ed002!



08 Jan 2015 16:59:44
Hi Eds, Happy New Year. Are LFC are looking to do any business this month, because we desperately need a GK


{Ed002's Note - Please read the posts. I am not getting into gossip for the other bit of the post which I cut, but I can assure you that the goat was fine.}

1.) 08 Jan 2015 18:33:17
Valdes has just signed a contract at OT - so their reserve keeper Lindegard maybe up for grabs.



10 Dec 2014 22:35:57
Hi Eds. do you think Brendan's days are numbered? And do you think FSG are rethinking the whole transfer committee idea, as well as Ian Ayres role in it all, and the fact we haven't got a strong experienced CEO?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed - it is as I have explained it over and over again.}



04 Jun 2014 22:00:16
Liverpool have appointed Ian Ayre as there new CEO. promotion from his previous position of MD

Am I not right in saying Southampton have a history of doing this to clubs. They did it with Clyne, and alderweireld. As well as that every paper has printed both Pep and Conte have spoken to VVD, so I think it's all a load of bs just to get more money, some even saying trying to force VVD to City because they are paying more.
I trust Macca when he says it's done as well as others who seem to have decent knowledge. Big up all the eds btw.

Ive said it on numerous occasions, that FSG are all about the money. I remember asking the eds if Klopp would get the full backing, to which u replied yes. There is no point agreeing to pay a transfer fee when you won't pay the wages, and to keep leaking it to the Liverpool Echo that we are going to spend X amount. Give it a rest FSG and stop trying to make a fool out of us fans.

Ed001. don't u dare even bring Paisley up. how can you even compare the two??? You really must be an imbecile.
1) Paisley had retired as a footballer, and joined the Boot Room straight after
2) Paisley was 35 when he joined as a physio, and 40 when he became Assistant, not 57 and been sacked by numerous clubs before being Assistant Manager, with a very poor club record.
Your lack of football knowledge is surprising, and the way you pick facts and twist them to suit your argument is a disgrace. your a typical bully who tries to belittle any poster who doesn't follow what you say.
and just to finish, every statement you made above was simply a reflection on yourself, as every comment was baseless. looks like you're the Moron


{Ed001's Note - bye bye, don't bother coming back until you know something about O'Driscoll and won't make such a complete idiot of yourself. People like you don't deserve to have a football team, you only want to abuse every one who is a part of it. Then you have the cheek to call someone else a bully after posting abuse of a nice man who has just taken a role at the club you pretend to care about. Utter and complete moron is what you are. Go find another place to infect with your idiocy.}
