Hi Ed's

Dont we have any defenders in under 23 or 21 who can play for the main 11?

Atleast to fill the 11?



{Ed002's Note - you have to pick players who can fit right in.}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 23:11:27
Lloyd Jones would be the only one with half a chance but would be a big gamble that.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 02:32:39
Is masterson the best cb in u23?

3.) 24 Oct 2017 23:02:59
Would love to see Masterson given a shot, unless that means fans jumping on his back after a mistake and ruining his confidenece!



31 Aug 2017 18:38:09
Any chance of Lucas Vasqez if Lemar is not done and we sell Coutinho?

Very good player to have but not be like for like replacement.

Good job Ed's.



{Ed002's Note - Of course - I have explained that over and over but all we get is dribbling from the Liverpool fans so I don't bother anymore.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:43:32
Who is Lucas Vazquez going to replace in the team? Mane or Salah?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:49:01
Highly unlikely Sami we are suddenly going to chasing a differant player in the last few hours mate. It was all about 2 players, neither happening.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:03:20
He will get more game time here than RM.

How abt spending Coutinho money for Kovacic and Lucas V from RM?

We would get more and competition.

No defenders because we only play attack.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 18:57:26
Ed02 start a Venmo account, so we can send you money for a few pints because it seems like you are going to need it. Plus when you drunk you repeat yourself anyway.

{Ed002's Note - I don't need the money thanks.}

5.) 31 Aug 2017 19:41:36
Lucas Vazquez really isn't that good. Not better than Mane or Salah and hardly a number 10.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 20:37:42
Whose better than mane right now? That would be very difficult.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 20:56:13
Is there a possibility we might come back for VVD in January if nothing materializes in this window Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}



04 Aug 2017 14:37:26

How is the Coutinho situation now?

Do you expect him to be with us this season?

Is there a possibility of Bale if we let Coutinho go?



{Ed002's Note - (a) Barcelona would like to buy Coutinho but Klopp doesn't want him soild. (b) I suspect he may not be as he is keen to move and the club have kept putting a price on him. (c) I wouldn't think there is any chance at all.}

1.) 04 Aug 2017 15:45:17
Has our price increased from the €100m euros we quoted PSG earlier in the year, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Various prices have been boucing around but Barcelona will be putting a second offer on the table very soon.}

2.) 04 Aug 2017 17:50:23
We don't want to sell but I think anything over £100 million we may find hard to turn down. £100million and Rakitic?


3.) 04 Aug 2017 18:12:55
I rate him very highly, certainly the heartbeat of this young side. I do have to admit though in terms of consistency he still falls behind players like Suarez who could take any game, any challenge, and come out fighting. I can't think of many games Suarez cruised through without some impact for us.

Maybe I'm saying I'd consider that swap :)

4.) 04 Aug 2017 18:36:31
100 mil and rakitic! That would be very hard to turn down. I cannot see them offering that. Although if we are going to be one of the club's directly affected by neymar's big money move then we should drive the hard bargain? . 80 mil plus rakitic. Why not? I would say yes to that. Reluctantly. If he wants to go we should not stop him. But we should have something definite lined up to fill the void if he leaves. My worry with ratikc is his age. He is very nearly 30 and thus on the downhill slide. I think he'd be great though.

{Ed001's Note - we would be mad to take on Rakitic and his huge salary now.}

5.) 04 Aug 2017 17:39:03
Who would you reckon we go for to replace him eds?

{Ed002's Note - Vazquez is a player that Liverpool would consider again as he is versatile - but Real Madrid has re-iterated he is not for sale. Max Max As I have said before, Max Meyer fits the bill of a young attacking midfield player who would fit the bill if Liverpool were to lose Coutinho and he could be a player they may look to - but right now they haven't and another side is chasing him down. Geoffrey Kondogbia is available but I would stay clear. Luan would be the wildcard if someone could resolve his ownership issues.}

6.) 04 Aug 2017 20:12:21
Ah, good point ed.

7.) 04 Aug 2017 23:53:50
I wouldn't mind Manuel Lanzini. Of course, never a "like-for-like" replacement for Coutinho as Couts is in a league of his own, but this late in the transfer window I can't see us being able to sort out a "bigger" signing, especially knowing how painfully slow we are to get transfers done. Coutinho leaving at this stage of preseason would be a huge blow for us as it leaves us little time for a big transfer and because he's looked instrumental in the midfield. Add to that Lallana is out injured and all of a sudden we have very little creativity in the midfield. Lanzini would be in a similar creative mold to Lallana's level I think and plays slight on that left side of midfield like Couts. good player in my eyes.

8.) 05 Aug 2017 01:15:24
Rakitic and LanzinI would be poor recruiting. Rakitic is past it. Too old and over the hill to be of any use. Lanzini simply isn't good enough. He lacks that extra quality that Coutinho has. If we brought these two in we may as well wave a white flag now.

9.) 05 Aug 2017 11:45:34
Have people actually seen these Rakitic and Lanzini types play exactly cos if they have, they would not be proposing them as Couts replacements.



29 Dec 2016 02:37:07
Hi Ed's

Any substance in Jese Rodrigez from PSG rumours?

Think he would be a good addition.



{Ed002's Note - Jese Rodriguez is available (because he has not settled, has been playing badly and has had a dreadful time since arriving in Paris) and has made it clear he wants to return to Spain. If Firmino, Coutinho or Mane were to leave it would make sense - else it makes absolutley zero sense. Right now PSG have shared two approaches for the player - neither of which is Liverpool.}

1.) 29 Dec 2016 09:25:40
Ed why does someone have to leave it's a squad game and we need different options to compete plus looks like we might have European games next season so will need bigger squad.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have a large squad and there are limitations. You cannot simply keep adding players - they will all want to play and Liverpool do not have the money to do that in any case.}



19 Jun 2015 04:55:13
Hi Ed's,

what's the latest on ARDA TURAN?

I was waiting for someone to post on ARDA but looks like everything has gone quiet. Even his agent has gone quiet.

Do you see anyhitng happening with ARDA and Liverpool?



{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 19 Jun 2015 10:44:22
Ed, don't you mean 'NO'

Robertson did decent and a good assist as well.

Would prefer him to Moreno akways.

Thought Couts does not trust him as much as moreno and did not pass to him when he was in a good position.

Couts was looking jaded via body language and no real interest to be here but still got 2 goals.

wij was rusty maybe due to position but we could have made subs earlier or had AOC or Grujic instead of Milner.



{Ed0333's Note - On the contarary i thought our lad from Brazil’s body language was pretty positive today mate.

1.) 02 Dec 2017 18:46:47
I Thought Couts was very good, they couldn’t handle him at all and resorted to clipping his heels, ultimately he had the last laugh by rolling the ball under the jumping wall.

Whether he wants to leave or not he still played well today.

Agree with Milner though, the lad is hopeless and seems to of been replaced by Wijnaldum as the utility player.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 21:22:51
Makes you wonder if their has been progress on his move.

{Ed002's Note - you have to pick players who can fit right in.}

1.) 24 Oct 2017 07:51:08
Aside from Gomez, no. None of them are ready for the first team.

{Ed001's Note - the only time you can really know that is when they play. Some players just play to the level they are at and so can step in seamlessly. Others fold under the pressure. However you never know for sure until they get the chance.}

2.) 24 Oct 2017 08:08:51
Whelan and Masterson are the highest rated in the academy. Both can play anywhere across the back line. Are they ready for senior football? Only by playing them will we find out.



20 Oct 2017 20:24:30
Hi Ed's

Never knew Bundealiga had women refrees.

Will we get to see the same in EPL?

Was watching Schalke vs Mainz. Though Groetzka got the goal, Max Meyer is the one we should look at.

Playing in front of 3 man defence, they were playing little trinagles and he seemed to be tactially aware and was linking the back to midfield.

Can't pass judgement on this game but he looked good.



{Ed001's Note - we already do have one in English footie, though she only ever gets to run the line she is a referee and could end up in the middle if there is an injury to the ref during the game she is working. Though she is probably better known for being the object of Richard Keys and Andy Gray's enlightened view on women that set in motion the events leading to Sly sacking the gruesome twosome.}

1.) 20 Oct 2017 21:08:18
And very good at her job as well.

{Ed001's Note - excellent every time I have seen her working. I don't understand why she has not been given the chance to be in the middle.}

2.) 20 Oct 2017 21:54:44
And we have Alex as a regular feature on football focus (who is beautiful) glad to see football moving with the times.

3.) 20 Oct 2017 22:13:26
Gruesome twosome. Lol.

4.) 21 Oct 2017 02:34:45
The FA is corrupt, it is more concerned with keeping white men in the centre circle than fighting sexism and racism. I mean, who actually thinks the the FA is out to improve the game and not just make a profit?

5.) 21 Oct 2017 07:58:48
Those two idiots now work for Bein Sports and are, if possible, even more loathesome and illinformed than they were at sky. Incredible they are hired at all.

{Ed001's Note - agreed. Suits the Qatari mindset though....}

6.) 21 Oct 2017 08:32:34
Did you not see this video from a few years back?

Hi Ed's

How do goalkeepers celebrate goals generally?

They are so far away from team mates and realistically can kick the goal post at the max or jump in the air or show with their fist.

Was thinking how lonely is that feeling when all team is with the goal scorer and they are happy but can't really express.



{Ed001's Note - it really depends, usually they celebrate with the crowd. I have seen keepers race to join in with the hugs etc before.}

1.) 22 Sep 2017 05:38:49
There is nothing stopping keepers running the length of the field to join in.

2.) 22 Sep 2017 05:59:55
Reina still does it 😎.

3.) 22 Sep 2017 06:34:35
Interesting question.

I sit behind the goal, Migs will turn to the kop and jump up and punch his fists in the air.

Opposition keepers will do the same but not turn and face the crowd lol.

4.) 22 Sep 2017 08:57:16
It can be a bit lonely.
I used to hug the goal post if nobody was behind my goal.
Usually the other team would send an "expert" behind our goal to talk to you throughout the game to distract you or put doubts in your head, so I'd usually run over to him and dry hump him when we scored.
We didn't usually score that many lol :)

5.) 22 Sep 2017 09:31:40
Just tend to celebrate with a red face and their head in their hands.

Ed 25 is absolutely right.

Can is 《《 Leiva who himself is 《《《 Kante type players.

Even Can himself will be embrassed to see him getting compared against De Buryne and Salah.

Fair assessment.

Emre Can is very very lucky to get these many games and still can't cement a place.

Hi ArAy1969

The way it is getting reported is different.

Klopp comes across very decent in his press conf but at the end of the day he is no different and is very avg when it comes to man management. Goal keeping situation is a very valid example of one.

On another note, good to see Salah up and running after last few weeks.

Can has had number of games to cement his place and he has failed.

Imagine getting a place in RM or Bayern. It isn't easy if you can't hold down a place here.

He was/ is an average player who got multiple opportunities as we lacked good players in that position and still has failed to convince. (cement his name as a starter)

So good luck to him wherever he goes.

Lallana should be in former list.

He is better than Can but by not much and not to be included in next level.

He is decent and better than Moreno.
Has room to improve a lot.
Need to see ED’s review to see what they think.

Looks like the way we see the game and interpret things varies.

Robertson is defensively better than Moreno and offensively he needs his team mates trust because he does not get the ball when he takes good positions.

Yeah everyone can improve and he also needs to improve.
