Ed2. I know there were issues with Etienne Reijnen obtaining a work permit. But is is true that he now officially won't be joining because efforts to obtain one is no longer a viable option?

Just read news breaking from last night stating that is the case.


{Ed002's Note - The WP issue has not been resolved so it is less likely.}

1.) 14 Jun 2024 11:25:45
Surely he will go on a skilled workers visa? I imagine he will be on more than £38.5k a year.

{Ed002's Note - It is not quite as simple as that.}

2.) 14 Jun 2024 13:45:47
I saw an article that said there is also a work permit issue for another one of the backroom staff (may have been the goalkeeper coach) . So not the smoothest handover we could have hoped for.

3.) 14 Jun 2024 13:59:26
Apparently he hasn’t got required qualifications. Could an analyst work remotely I wonder until he gets his badges or will we just have to bring someone else in for his job.



18 Apr 2024 16:43:09
Ed2. One for the rumours page.

I saw you did a list the other day on potential outgoings within the Liverpool squad. Are you aware of our plans for Nunez. Is he on the not for sale list or is he available if the right bid comes in?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans to replace him.}

1.) 18 Apr 2024 17:53:46
Okay, cheers Ed2.

Although he has frustrated the life out of many of us of late, including myself. I would like to see how he fairs in a different system and approach.

{Ed002's Note - Sure but he is not looking like a €100M player.}

2.) 18 Apr 2024 18:41:19
Ed2. Sadly I agree. He certainly is not looking like a €100 million player.

3.) 18 Apr 2024 22:23:42
He’s not looking like a £30m player to be honest.

4.) 19 Apr 2024 02:04:15
Don't lie Ron, we all know you love Nunez ;) .

5.) 19 Apr 2024 06:39:34
To be fair to Darwin, he was beginning to look like he could be the real deal - then we inexplicably decided to revert to the late years Wenger / Guardiola lite style of play that was such a disaster last season (presumably to boost Ljinders stock for job interviews or push sales of his book) .

It doesn’t suit him - or most of the squad tbh - and just exposes the weaknesses in his game.

Hopefully Amorim and his coaching staff play to his strengths and we can see the real Captain Chaos again.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 07:45:20
I thought he was doing alright causing problems out in the wing for a bit. But that only seemed to last a few games before he was moved central again. But then, what do I know…?

7.) 19 Apr 2024 08:02:03
If you need an example of what the right or wrong tactics can do for / to a player, look at Amorim’s current star striker - Viktor Gyokores.

In Brighton’s system he looked like a player who’d struggle to get a game on Stanley Park.

But stick him with 2 managers who play to his strengths (Robins at Cov and Amorim at Sporting) and he’s flying.

8.) 19 Apr 2024 08:03:43
He needs to play LW, can't be relied on as the main threat.

9.) 19 Apr 2024 12:50:20
We are overloaded with right footed left wingers.

Drawin is not the best of them.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 18:46:26
Nunez is in the top 5 goals/ assist chart in the top 5 leagues of Europe, which is not a walk in the park, however his easy misses have cost us points, and his erratic nature does not seem to be improving.



21 Aug 2023 11:42:24
Ed2. Has Liverpool looked at Konstantinos Koulierakis the young centre back that plays for POAK in the Greek Super League?

The lad looks a real talent but I understand AC Milan are very much interested. Seeing if there is a possibility for us to make a deal happen.


{Ed002's Note - No, he would not get a WP for the Premier League.}

1.) 21 Aug 2023 14:12:56
Okay cheers ?.

2.) 21 Aug 2023 15:47:07
Football manager? We should look at roony bardgjhi too! and that diouf kid from rennes for midfield!

3.) 21 Aug 2023 18:16:43
@Liveburd031 Football manager? I have a life so don’t have time to be sitting in front of a PC playing football games.



29 Jul 2023 11:12:32
Ed. Do we have any interest in Florentino Luis? Are Benfica even open to selling this summer given the right price or is he in the not for sale category?


{Ed002's Note - Florentino (DM) Scouts continue to watch Benfica but they have no interest in selling Florentino Luis unless his buy out clause is met or nearly matched. Seen by Barcelona as a potential Busquets replacement, but, too expensive although they would look to include a player or two.Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool spoke with his agent last summer. Manchester City want to upgrade Kalvin Phillips and Florentino fits the bill. For Liverpool he would realistically be a Fabinho replacement but they are looking at others so can realistically be discounted. PSG were interested but have moved for Ugarte so they can be discounted. Napoli, Arsenal and Milan offer less likely options although with Tonali now departing Milan we may see an increase of interest in him but at nothing close to his buy out clause and they will want to include players. Wildcard would be Chelsea but they have a much preferred option. His sale would also be dependent on buying a replacement and the one they have in mind is edging toward a move elsewhere.}

1.) 29 Jul 2023 12:08:08
Cheers Ed2. Much appreciated ?.

2.) 29 Jul 2023 13:06:07
Isn’t his buy out clause about £100m. That’s going to put a lot of clubs off.

3.) 30 Jul 2023 12:22:25
If we are signing any player for 100m this season, it should be Gvardiol.

I know, Ed02. It's not going to happen.



15 May 2022 14:28:23

A lot has been said about Jude Bellingham and his next destination for the 2023/ 2024 season. However, I have seen a few outlets reporting that we are interested in his younger brother Jobe Bellingham. Can you shed any light on whether this is true or which clubs are looking at him?


{Ed002's Note - He is a 16 year old kiddie - I would need to ask around.}

1.) 15 May 2022 22:26:57
No problem. Cheers Ed2.

2.) 16 May 2022 09:34:23
Not wishing to be cynical but clever move by the club if looking ahead to tempting big brother Bellingham over next year.

3.) 16 May 2022 10:52:52
like bowen but would only be an option if salah left.
liverpool have raided relegated teams before (robertson, wijnaldum, shaqiri) .
could raphinha be a target if leeds go down?

A bit off topic but Liverpool have just released a video on their official YouTube channel titled The Reds Roundtable. It has Klopp, Pep, Alex (Academy Director), Elliott and Gakpo.

0:41-1:35 was emotional. Yes I'm excited for the future and yes I feel it's time to move in a different direction under new leadership. That doesn't make me less of a supporter or unappreciated of the great work Klopp has done. That being said, watching that part of the video got me emotional. I am going to miss Klopp. So many great memories. I will never forget the night we won the Champions League, nor the day we won the league. He made all of us walk with our heads held high during the 2017/ 2018-2020 years, as we were simply unplayable.

Wish him and his family all the best for the future!


1.) 10 May 2024 15:08:30
Just saw the vid on my youtube feed. going to watch that, for sure. As for the way you feel/ felt during that 3 years span of 2017 till 2020, you as spot on. Those 3 years where we became Champions of Everywhere and undoubtedly the BEST team in the world.

I remember those times like they happened a few months ago and remember vividly how I felt and how proud of my club and manager were at the time. If we have anywhere near an era/ period like that under Slot, I will be over the moon. Thanks for all the great memories, Herr Jurgen! You will definitely be missed.

2.) 10 May 2024 15:40:56
Alonso have you seen Klopps presser from today when he arrived late.

Thats a pretty good one.

3.) 10 May 2024 16:11:46
@Oli Definitely a good watch Oli. They discuss many topics from his tenure, to the academy and it was good hearing from Gakpo and Elliott about the path from youth footy to becoming a pro.

@JK23 Hope you’re well mate. I haven’t yet but will do ?.

4.) 10 May 2024 22:58:34
Klopps interviews with Kelly and the round table have made me forget the pain of the last few weeks. The man is about more than trophies. It’s about how to act and live your life. I’m grateful we had him for 9 years. The trophies he has won mean more because of who he is and how he has acted. Legend.

5.) 11 May 2024 08:37:25
The man's a legend, regardless of how we have played or arguable underperformed due to tactics in the last 12-28 months. Even if he hadn't of won everything during his time with us, we are in considerably better shape now then what we were when he arrived, gone from also rans to genuine competitors. That's his legacy and now it's up to the new management to ensure that effort doesn't go to waste.



25 Feb 2024 17:52:02
I'm proud of the boys. Got a little teary seeing VVD emotional at the final whistle. Proud of our captain. His first trophy as captain and many more to come.




26 Jan 2024 12:02:17
Ed1. For me, I love what Xabi Alonso is doing in Germany and been quite vocal about that. I didn't think the time would come as soon as this summer to think about it. So my question is. Do you see the club bringing in Alonso?

To Klopp. All I can say is thank you for the memories. You made me hold my head up high amongst any fans in the league. I remember crying with pride the night we won the League. You bought us every trophy possible. What I hope to see is the boys push on and see him off by winning the quadruple!



{Ed001's Note - I just don't see any other candidate out there.}

1.) 26 Jan 2024 12:31:03
Best way to put is he’s a generational talent and character. Certainly no one who is not replaceable. its really tough recognising a replacement in all honesty, but if the club has known since November they must already be considering candidates or at least have a short list.

Would Xabi be in that list I really don’t know.

2.) 26 Jan 2024 12:32:39
Ed1. I hope you’re right. He is the obvious choice and hope the club are aware of him.

Just in complete shock about this news to be honest, and the only comfort would be Alonso taking over.

3.) 26 Jan 2024 12:33:18
Alonso IMO, the real question should be: Who else is out there that can come in esp. one who knows the club and it's supporters and the fabric of the club on a deeper level other than Alonso right now judging by the madness he is doing at Leverkusen right now?

4.) 26 Jan 2024 12:33:20
He's certainly the best candidate if not the only 1, just hope pep doesn't get the role.
True legend Jurgen. Above all players past and present. True legend.

5.) 26 Jan 2024 14:09:02
Pep is off, Magico.



30 Sep 2023 21:07:45
Despite the atrocious and quite frankly inexcusable decisions I'm proud to be a red and proud of my team. It took a last minute own goal for Spurs to beat a 9 man team. We pick ourselves up and we go again and show why we can be title contenders. YNWA.


1.) 30 Sep 2023 21:16:50
Hear hear.

2.) 30 Sep 2023 21:19:24
What happens now, when a legitimate goal is disallowed post VAR check? How was the goal even disallowed? What will be the consequences i wonder.

3.) 30 Sep 2023 22:21:40
The refs ref the refs.
Oh we made a mistake. sorry. and move on to make more next week.

Call them out and you get banned. So they have a free pass to be as incompetent as they want.

4.) 30 Sep 2023 22:47:29
If Harry Kane can file an appeal and have a goal that was credited to someone else credited to him, why can't Luis Diaz file an appeal to have a goal credited that was not credited? There's ample factual evidence that would back his claim.



16 Sep 2023 14:49:42
Szoboszlai is only 22 years old. Just let that sink in.


1.) 16 Sep 2023 20:26:12
Did he have a good game?

*All I know is Joyce is very reliable when it comes to Liverpool affairs. So it looks like our next coach is Arne Slot

Autocorrect ?‍♂️.

Ed2. Has been mentioning Arne Slot from the beginning.

Paul Joyce tweeted 2 hours ago “Feyenoord coach Arne Slot interesting Liverpool. “

Fabrizio Romano just tweeted the following “One more direct contact will take place soon between Arne Slot and Liverpool board to discuss more key points of the project.

Slot, keen on Liverpool job and concrete option as he’s highly rated by #LFC. ”

I don’t know much about him as I don’t watch the Dutch league. All I know is he turned down both Spurs and Chelsea in the last few years.

All I know is when Joyce is very reliable when it comes to our Liverpool affairs. So it looks like our next coach is Arne Slot.

Ed2. I am trying to understand this. I have previously asked why Klopp still has involvement in future transfer decisions, despite being on the way out. You informed me it’s because his opinion is valued. But, if we really wanted Amorim or another manager for that matter and this is causing problems in appointing them - then I’m scratching my head as to why Edwards and Hughes would allow that to continue. Wouldn’t common sense mean they would put a stop to that completely? I mean, great manager and legend he is, that is not in doubt. But talent spotting has reportedly never been his strong point. If I’m missing something here let me know because to me, it doesn’t make sense.


{Ed002's Note - Edwards and to a lesser extent Hughes do not pick the players. Hunter and Fallows do.}

@Keague. The women and children were quickly moved out of that area by the time Nunez and the other players made it up. It was the men of the families, so uncles, friends etc that were creating a shield and subsequently ended up defending themselves. But you tell a man who has seen his family come under attack to think rational. Not condoning any violence but many people have lost their lives messing with someone’s family. Quickest way to get someone to go from 0-100.

@OliRed America is a different ball game all together when it comes to seating arrangements. I know it sounds mad to us, and trust me it sounds mad to me. They don’t do it like in England, or Europe for that matter. They mix their fans for all sports games. That could never happen in England. Also the VIP boxes at last nights game were reserved for season ticket holders only. They will have to rethink that mix seating arrangement for the World Cup, otherwise they will have the same problem on their hands and this time the whole world will be watching. Or players will have no choice but to get local armed security to all games who are legally licensed to carry. Regarding the police, 30 minutes to turn up to a situation like that at a major tournament is negligence. Hence why I don’t think Nunez or the other players involved will get harsh punishments. America don’t want the attention on them or potential legal problems at not having the proper safety measures in place for a Copa America semi finals when they are due to host the next World Cup.

Ed25, all those clips are readily available on Twitter mate. I get banter and jokes but peoples families should never be put in that situation. Seen a lot of rival fans put their rivalry aside and actually say fair play to Nunez for protecting his family. Again, if it were me I am suing the host, venue or whenever and I’m having a straightener there and then with whoever is attacking my family. Also, 30 minutes for the police to turn up is unacceptable. Wife’s and kids were quickly moved out of there. But seeing Nunez consoling his son after him and his wife were subject to coming under attack has no place in football. And to think that country is one of the three hosting the 2026 World Cup ?‍♂️.


{Ed025's Note - i have not seen them clips yet Alonso but i agree that the policing was a disgrace, of course if his family was at risk he was well within his rights to act, but as i say not having had the full facts its hard to determine the rights and wrongs of it all mate..

Anyone who says Nunez should get banned, I seriously have to question your judgement and morals. Also, Nunez was not the only player that jumped into the crowd to protect their family. Urgarte, Valverde and Araujo are seen on video weight behind Nunez. Urgarte’s mum was taken to hospital. Araujo’s uncle was clearly seen on video fighting off the drunk violent Colombian fans.

Nunez’s son was seen traumatised and crying because of what he had to witness. And to make matters worse, the police took 30 minutes to turn up and if anything it should be the Uruguayan players suing the venue or whoever for not securing the safety of their family and for the delay in responding to the trouble. And I would hope any man would fight if their family were under attack, because if it were my family, I’m fighting without a second thought. If I can’t protect my family, I ain’t a man.


{Ed025's Note - i have yet to see those clips Alonso..

I know talent is not enough. It’s a combination of talent and hard work. Knew nothing about him prior to today but watching clips of him, I instantly thought of a certain French forward. Incoming posters saying “come on now, that’s a bit of a stretch” and yes YouTube is not the best tool in gaging a players ability. I’m in no way saying he will reach that level but there is something special about the kid and that’s the player he reminds me of. He looks like he doesn’t lack any confidence, both footed, at 15 years old played a number of games for the U21’s and already trained with the first team. The fact that Chelsea fans are saying he is the best youngster since Musiala is high praise. They are absolutely gutted he has decided to join us. Anyways, it’s now down to the kid to keep his head down, learn and work hard so he fulfils his potential. Otherwise he will end up on the long list of what could have been.

I agree with those 3 things PFP.

I would also add playing players in their actual position and veering away from the 4-3-3 formation and going with the 4-2-3-1 formation Arne Slot favours.

Klopp admitted to mismanaging players on the round table talk, which you can find from a month back on our official YouTube channel. He most notably spoke about Elliott but for me it was more Gakpo, Szobo, Nunez and Mac Allister to a lesser extent.

We actually have good players within our squad. And if we can get them playing in their positions, with confidence and and the freedom to express themselves along with a few signings in key areas, then we will be half on our way.
