Sad to see Klopp and Mourinho publicly disagreeing with the decision to exonerate Man City of their ban from the UCL. I will always choose to listen to Ed001/ 2 over the media, they have proven that right over many years. I thought better of our beloved manager than to stoop to levels of disregarding a proper investigation behind what can only be described as a witch-hunt. As Ed002 has said all along, the original charge was based off nothing concrete. Don't get me wrong, Klopp is a Liverpool legend and I love that we have the best manager in the world right now. He just didn't need to get involved in this particular subject.

{Ed002's Note - Don't forget that Liverpool went after Manchester City during the lock down as well - with their extremely embarrassing letter to CAS.}

Hi ed002 apologies if you have already answered this. i am after reading an interview JK done earlier today where he has repeated the clubs position on transfers by saying if we have money we will invest in the squad but unfortunately due to CV it looks unlikely. this is something you have informed us of since lockdown. my question to do ed002 is are club actively looking to bring anyone in or is it a case of someone prominent leaves they will be replaced. thanks as always for all your hard work.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The club will have ideas for players if money becomes available but I would not expect them to buy just for the sake of it (has Shaqiri got an older brother they could look at). They have to buy to improve the squad - not pad the squad out.)

As it's almost the end of the season, are there any players you guys would look to sign from one of the possible relegated clubs?

Feels like we can't even afford a free transfer in our current situation. I know C.V. has affected us in a unpredictably bad way but it kinda feels like something isn't right when we can't seem to afford a 20m player having hardly spent in the summer or january. Hopefully FSG will get a much needed wake up call when it comes to agent fees.

Pukki from Norwhich. He started the season well but tailed off as Norwhich did. He has a yard of pace that's for sure and is an excellent finisher. I think he got Finland to the Euros with his goals. Im not sure of the cost and if he would be willing to play as a back up but he's got something about him I really like, I'm sure he would score goals.

Brooks from Bournemouth for me, I know he's just back from a long injury but still young and looks like he can become a top player, can play from the right or centrally behind the attack and with klopp working on his tactical understanding and stamina he could develop into a strong deeper CM prospect. I'm unsure if being Welsh qualifies as HG or not but he'd be an upgrade on shaqiri for the future and a possible incentive for Bournemouth to consider taking Harry Wilson permanently as his replacement. What do you make of him as a player and if he could maybe hit another level under klopp. I think Eddie Howe lacks so much strength in managing the tactical improvement of his players out of possession that klopp has shown to turn players into more balanced players.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Being Welsh does not qualify for being HG anymore than being English does. It depends where you play before being 21 - so Nathan Ake, who is Dutch, is HG in England. So if you play in England or Wales it is OK. For Scotland it is different of course, to Robertson will not be HG.}

Ed02 if u get time could u give me a brief breakdown of how it works when a club finds a young talent And signs them up to how it all starts from schooling to 1st team?
Thanks if u get a chance.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Quickly, and starting with 16 year old Rueben Cohen joining the club and moving to Liverpool from his home in Belgium. Liverpool will be become responsible for his well being, schooling, training (limited hours), religious needs, etc. under rigorous rules - and this continues until he is no longer considered a child at 18. Players of that age may get to train occasionally with the First Team or U23s but appearances will normally be limited. Once the players are 18 the club remains responsible but schooling is no longer required. There are also strict rules regarding transfers and loans prior to being 18. After that it is working hard for Rueben Cohen and trying to get a chance. He may get a loan from certain clubs and some clubs will have a fixed career path for him to follow.}

As an aside, the reason why EPL sides have been scarfing up 16/17 year old kiddies from abroad (Manchester City and Chelsea have already signed several, Mancjester United and Liverpool one each as I recall) is that post Brexit EPL clubs will have to wait until the players are 18.

Hey Ed what if said young players want a university level education on top of being a player, would this be possible or is it a case of one or the other?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - When that has happened they have been to university first in most cases - and there are not that many I can think of.}

I've been interested to read of Mourinho's and Klopp's comments today on Manchester City's FFP decision.
The lack of cooperation which City were fined for sets a dangerous precedent in my view.
Should a lack of cooperation be a strict liability offence?
Otherwise we can have everyone doing what they want, not cooperating and then getting a paltry fine after the process has been frustrated?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You might want to look closer to home for such behaviour.}

14 Jul 2020 18:52:41
Ed2, why can't you enter into a conversation without turning it round to liverpool? Klopp and Mourinho clearly have an opinion and I would say they are probably better placed than most to have that opinion. I get it's the liverpool page but surely juicer can ask à question without you turning it round to try and make liverpool the bad guys again. Whilst I highly value your input it does become rather tiresome with the inability to answer such questions without bad mouthing liverpool. Cue your response calling me a certain.
Lol. Valid point I believe and in no way abusive. Just asking a question. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You really don't want to know.}

Thought both Klopp and especially Jose were spot on with their comments. If we are going to have any chance of retaining the title ( to which I don’t see ) next season, we need City in the European competition.

I'm sure I've seen somewhere that ed002 has said Liverpool have spent based on future income and taken a loan maybe? Where does that stand within ffp? Also ed I'm sure or someone has mentioned that UEFA and Fifa didn't cooperate under the same scrutiny yet they are trying to play judge and jury. Klopps and Mourinhos comments are just gamesmanship and planting seeds as always.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You have misunderstood. I am not going to open it all up again.}

14 Jul 2020 19:28:17
I remember Ed002 explaining how we were very close to the wire ( a while ago ) with regards to FFP.

Drogie, City have shown over the last 2 seasons that they can win the PL title while at the same time being in the CL even tho, they get done early on the the knockout stages. So I don't understand that part of your post. Also, why do you not see LFC winning the title next season, exactly? Cheers, man.

We all know who needs to look closer to home with yet another lawsuit against them currently. Not brave enough to mention them huh! What a shock.

Never understood the need to deflect blame or fault myself. Seems like something school kids do. Look at the things you do wrong yourself, not think it's ok because someone else does it.

Short question ed002 didn't FIFA and uefa confirm that FFP is cut off for next season that is next 2 transfer windows.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No. You have misunderstood.}

14 Jul 2020 17:03:59
Question for you Ed002. Some reports coming out that not all EPL games games will be televised this upcoming season, even if stadiums are kept empty. Would you know anything about this? Is it somethng under consideration or a done deal?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It has not been agreed yet but because of one PL club screwing around over costs this season and rejecting a media offer, the potential costs for OB next season are huge. Nothing has been finalised yet.}

14 Jul 2020 22:50:34
Thanks Ed. We'll wait for everyone to come to their senses. 😒.

A question for the Ed's if you are able. I was curious as to how much sporting good company contracts impact potential transfers.

In the US, in college recruiting, the shoe company that sponsors the program can have a big part in where the recruit decides to go. I was curious if endorsement deals have any role in influencing where a player may sign. In other words, would a player who signs with adidas be less likely at all to join a team in contract with Nike.

I'm just curious as to whether there is any correlation there.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Not at all. They are not allowed to.}

14 Jul 2020 20:20:45
Thank you Ed!
