ED002, a question for you, if I may.
What's the quickest you've ever seen a transfer happen from initial interest to signing a deal? I'm sure here are loads of legal documents, medicals, agreements, etc to take place so I'm just wondering if someone decided to move for a player a couple of hours before the window closes if it is possible.


{Ed002's Note - There have been very late cases where clubs need someone at a particular position and have managed for force a deal though right at thee end. Partey, Luis are examples.

1.) 30 Aug 2023 22:03:00
What about the dodgy fax machines 02? ??.

{Ed002's Note - Absolutely Jay.}

2.) 30 Aug 2023 22:09:59
What about van der vart to spurs. rmember that being a last minute deal back then ed.

{Ed002's Note - Lots and lots Magic.}

3.) 30 Aug 2023 22:44:01
Arthur Melo to Liverpool must have been done very fast.

4.) 30 Aug 2023 22:51:57
We have been there in the past but the last few times we tried doing a deal very late on it never materialised.

5.) 31 Aug 2023 02:35:20
Arthur melo to Liverpool finished also very fast?.

6.) 31 Aug 2023 07:28:08
LiveBird 13mins wasn't it. let's Hope we don't repeat the situation.



15 Jul 2023 10:07:57
Newspaper report that we've bid for Valverde from Real Madrid. I don't believe it but what a signing that would be.


1.) 15 Jul 2023 10:59:12
Would make the Szoboszlai signing a bit pointless. I think if Fab goes we need a DM like Lavia maybe and if Henderson goes we need a versatile player i like the idea of Llorente he can play as one of the 8s or fill in for Trent in that inverted RB role.

2.) 15 Jul 2023 11:05:56
Mbappe fund. Do not be surprised.

{Ed002's Note - Federico Valverde (CM) Real Madrid are ideally not looking to sell the player, previously of interest to Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Manchester United, as they expected him to settle in as a regular as Modric and Kroos are coming to the end of their RM careers over the next year. That was explained to a PL club who enquired when discussing another player. However, funds are needed for the Mbappe pot and Real Madrid will be open to selling for €100M. Manchester City have sent scouts to look at him as they look to add to their Central Midfield options. Liverpool interest could return after losing out on Bellingham but right now they need to clarify what they wish to do and have been exploring other targets. Player seemingly does not want to move on, so he will be able to pick and choose.}

3.) 15 Jul 2023 11:06:49
He would be an unbelievable signing. Only way he see it happening though is if Madrid need money for Mbappe. He is mates with Nunez though and if we sold Thiago, Hendo and Fab for about £60 that helps massively to fund the deal factoring in the wage saving of 3 players on around £200k a week to one player on maybe just above that. Stunning player though and so versatile. RW, AM, CM, DM etc.

4.) 15 Jul 2023 11:16:06
Valverde is an great player and versatile so would gladly have him in our team although I don’t believe that we are in for him, that he would want to leave Madrid and that Madrid would even consider selling him. Tchouaméni However May become an option soon if Madrid pursue Mbappe, we were happy to match madrids fee when we were in for him last year so madrid could easily recoup that from us.

5.) 15 Jul 2023 12:01:53
Tchouaméni really? Has he ever shown any desire to come to Liverpool?

We need to understand that not all players fall over themselves to play for us.
We are not attractive to many, geographically, meteorologically, culturally or even LFC historically, no matter how good we think a player fits into our own personal puzzle board.

We, on the other hand, know we're the dogs bollocks and sometimes planets align with players. Especially ones we were not expecting at all.

6.) 15 Jul 2023 12:06:10
As good as Valverde is, he is not a specialist DM and that has to be the priority now.

7.) 15 Jul 2023 11:29:38
Fabs removed from Germany squad after £40m bid from Saudi confirmed. This could well make things interesting to see which direction the club go in.

8.) 15 Jul 2023 11:36:01
Ed even with the mooted fees of 40 million for fabinho and 20 for Henderson along with the departures of possibly thiago matip tsimikas kehheler surely we still have no chance of signing an mbappe or valverde?

{Ed002's Note - You all told me Mbappe to Liverpool was a "done deal" - what has happened?}

9.) 15 Jul 2023 12:58:31
Northern humour.

10.) 15 Jul 2023 14:41:57
Any updates on our interest in Marco Llorente?
I have seen LFC stated as his current club status in Wikipedia in the last 3 days. Hmm.

{Ed002's Note - If that is what Wikipedia says than it must be another "done deal". Great news.}



06 May 2020 18:59:17
Hi Ed2
Saw some news reports about Talles Magno from VDG being available at a lower price than you'd usually expect for a Brazilian prospect. I notice that you previously posted something in Feb that sides were quoted €65m.
1. Is there any update on your previous reply?
2. What are the rules with 17 year olds moving from Brazil?


{Ed002's Note - Talles Magno (S/W) Vasco de Gama kiddie who has been subject to discussions with Lyon's Sporting Director Juninho and Real Madrid who want him to join and pair up with Reinier Jesus and Rodrygo to ease the transition. Lazio and Roma enquired after a price and were quoted €65M but it went no further than that and realistically it would need to be less than half that. Benfica, Manchester City, Braga, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Bayern Munich were impressed with him enough at the U17 World Cup to continue to watch him at club level. I would suggest the chances of him moving to Europe would be influenced by compatriots at Real Madrid or the lure of Juninho at OL. Benfica have offered the best opportunity to get through in to the first team. I cannot assess the chances of a move to any of the other sides.

17 year olds cannot move from Brazil.}

Florentino Luis only made the bench for Benfica tonight. Hopefully no risking him for our impending transfer :)


1.) 14 Aug 2023 22:06:38
Will need to pay 120M upfront just like we payed for our both signings which can be difficult for club especially when Klopp said we over stretched For MC and I'm sure we offered a structured payment tho.

2.) 14 Aug 2023 22:32:06
120mil in euro. Thanks to british pounds, it going be like 104mil pounds, cheaper than Caicedo!

3.) 14 Aug 2023 23:25:55
Buy Caicedo wasn't offered upfront payment . with he's buyout clause will need to pay 104M upfront.



29 Aug 2022 11:29:31
Question for you Ed1, if you don't mind.
If we were to sign a midfielder this window, which player do you think would really suit us and be your preference?


{Ed001's Note - Laimer. He looks the most suited out there, in fact Ed077 even brought him up on our last podcast as the player we should have signed. I hated to do so, but I had to agree with him, he looks to be ideal.}

1.) 29 Aug 2022 11:48:08
Thanks Ed. With his contract running down it sounds like the sort of signing we'd be able to make. Fingers crossed.

{Ed001's Note - I wish but I think he has his heart set on Bayern.}



22 Oct 2021 18:24:01
Loving Salah's comments about wanting to stay at the club for the rest of his career but it is up to the club. I'm assuming that means we've not offered him enough money.
Much better place to be in than him wanting to move on.


1.) 22 Oct 2021 18:58:18
Klopp must step in like he did Henderson. We must tie this guy down he’s one of the best players in the world and he loves the Club, the fans, the city.
Make it happen.

2.) 22 Oct 2021 19:06:51
It's very difficult, the club could probably afford the wages for 1 player. But what happens when all the other players expect to be paid more than they are currently are relative to salah.

Not as easy as just pay him what he wants.

It could mean the player is becoming bigger than the club.

3.) 22 Oct 2021 19:27:37
If your the best player at the club / in the world and likely to be for next few seasons then you deserve to be on more than anyone else surely. Or at least on bonuses for performance that take you there.

4.) 22 Oct 2021 19:37:04
I am not saying he doesn't deserve to me on more, he does. But are we talking about him earning double what Van Dijk, Mane, Alison are on? If we are, are they going to be happy? U also need a good/ motivated team to win trophies not just one happy well paid superstar.

5.) 22 Oct 2021 19:51:35
Tough one I can't see us smashing our wage structure for Salah.

I actually think giving Salah a monster contract will motivate and attract other players and show them that we reward the best of the best but don't see how we can actually afford it.

6.) 22 Oct 2021 19:59:54
There’s no doubting that Salah is our best player but we also can’t deny that without Vvd last season at certain points we were a s##t show. And how many times has Alison bailed us out or mane been the match winner. Looking from the outside to in it looks like the harmony we have amongst the players at the club is world class. Would
That be effected if one player was earning double or even triple than others?

7.) 22 Oct 2021 21:06:45
If all the other players play as good as Salah and give us what he does grand pay them but other wise F off amd earn your wage! Simples!

8.) 22 Oct 2021 21:19:24
We can't pay him double but we would be a far worse team without him. If VVD is on £250k a week, I think everyone would accept Mo on £350k a week and some signing on bonus. I hope his comments are genuine.

9.) 22 Oct 2021 21:38:45
Then we are letting the best player in the world go and weakening our side considerably if we let him leave, how can we call our self a world class club if we cannot nail down our biggest player and he is begging too stay .

10.) 22 Oct 2021 21:48:23
Salah should just get the 500 a week base salary if that's what he wants. I think he gets something like 10.5 a year base and each season 10.5 in bonuses capped at 10.5 so realistically it's achievable for the club. I'm sure he brings an awful lot of revenue and following in the middle east and north Africa so why not. We will simply not find another salah and he could continue at this rate for the next 3 to 4 years.

11.) 22 Oct 2021 21:48:34
All I’ll say is if he goes who can we get to bring in of equal quality who is going to slot straight in and score 20+ goals in the league every year and as many assists as Salah gets too at a price we can afford if Salah goes? As there’s literally no one I can think of who springs to mind in our price range. By all accounts the club would seriously consider bringing in the likes of Dembele or Traore, as a replacement, which is about as palatable as a dog sh*t sandwich.

12.) 22 Oct 2021 21:50:47
Eds thoughts on all this?

Contract/ salary, agent trying to get a move elsewhere, what's this all about?

{Ed001's Note - I would say it was mainly about the length of the deal.}

13.) 22 Oct 2021 22:34:16
Nearly a done deal then ed001?

14.) 22 Oct 2021 23:17:42
It's comical reading these comments about wanting Salah to stay. Apparently he's been signing for Real Madrid every summer since he signed for Liverpool. I'd much prefer him to stay, but if the club can't afford the wages his agent is demanding and he goes then it won't be the end of the world, or the end of the club either.
All players come and go, only the fans and the club itself remain.

15.) 22 Oct 2021 23:22:03
Firstly, he’s fit as a fiddle and shows no signs of slowing. He’ll be at the top for at least the length of a new contract. Secondly, honestly, who at the club seeing the things he does and the standards he sets would even think to ask for the same amount? Thirdly, It’s a new contract, much like a free signing, you expect to pay a premium to keep the services of a superstar if you want to stave off the competition.

He’s the best in the world. Pay what he wants. We live in a time where the sort of goals that we watch football for are a regular thing with this guy.

I saw him against Tottenham in the uefa cup and thought he was special. Saw him a few months later against Chelsea and knew he was special. I was gutted when Chelsea signed him for a pittance. Was delighted when Chelsea threw away another superstar and even more so when he signed for us. He’s been more than I could hope for since then. Give him his money. We watch football for these once in a generation players and he plays for us.

16.) 22 Oct 2021 23:50:08
I think FSG will keep him but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was sold. It’s not love of lfc for these guys it’s money. As ed1 says it length of contract that’s the sticking point.

17.) 23 Oct 2021 01:10:35
Cheers for reply Ed. So you reckon, what - he wants a short term extension?

Is it clear yet what his salary expectation is?

{Ed001's Note - other way round, I would expect he wants a long term deal.}

18.) 23 Oct 2021 05:54:49
He’s the one player in the team who should get a long term contract. Dedicated, fit, resilient and rarely injured. He will still be a top player at 34/ 35 yrs old. He’s well worth the ‘risk’ of a 4/ 5 yr contract.

19.) 23 Oct 2021 08:15:16
Agreed IDOG. He has been a model pro since he has been with us and worked his arse off as well. Well deserving of being the highest paid player at the club. Surely the club can afford one player on higher than normal wages, not that I am aware or care really what the clubs wage structure is. If someone works hard enough to consistently perform at the level he has been then that deserve a bit of special treatment in my opinion.

20.) 23 Oct 2021 14:49:29
Piffmunda, not sure that while rhetoric of players wanting the same thing as Salah sticks in this case. Salah is mint and is our best player and should be paid accordingly. Pretty sure the other players agree on that and know he is worth it so why would they pick a fuss about it esp if hone if them are producing as much as he is?

As Ed01 has said, the wages aren’t so much the issue. It is the length of the deal which is normal due to his age. Also remember that we signed up our other big boys. Did you think they would have signed without getting assurances that Salah would be extended too? Think about it.



15 Jul 2021 13:58:28
Ed2, we know and appreciate (well most of us do) that you have information about interest to major EPL and European clubs. However, do you get to hear much about the lower league (EFL) interest too? You are only 1 person and I just assumed you can only hear about so much in a day.


{Ed002's Note - I would generally have to ask specifically. Ed003 might be a better choice.}



12 Jun 2021 08:29:54
Hi Ed2

I've always wondered whether footballers actually get paid weekly or monthly.
We always talk about salaries per week but payment runs that frequently aren't common in business. Could you enlighten me please?


{Ed002's Note - Monthly.}

1.) 12 Jun 2021 09:43:17
Probably broken down weekly as the figures are already astronomical.

Imagine breaking it down to monthly, £250k a week players are a £1m a month!

2.) 12 Jun 2021 10:19:25
£1,083,333.00 per month actually 😁.

3.) 12 Jun 2021 10:44:04
Don't forget the 33p! That's half a freddo these days 😂.

4.) 12 Jun 2021 10:51:05
They were 5p in my day WYred 😪.

5.) 12 Jun 2021 12:52:59
Obviously my wages were not comparable to a PL footballers, but when I worked in Oz and NZ, I was always paid weekly. Was so much better than a monthly pay cheque and now I'm back in Europe. I'm back on monthly and can't stand it!

6.) 12 Jun 2021 16:05:38
I’d be happy with a League One or Two average weekly wage 😂😂.

{Ed0666's Note - I’d be happy with a top players annual salary in league 1 they are handsomely compensated squire.

His wages were only huge because we got him on a free transfer. Put the whole pacakage together and factor in all his injuries but also all the trophies, it was still a very worthwhile signing.

ED001, if we are way down our list of preferred managers, what do you think of Iraola at Bournemouth? Seems to have turned a relegation threatened team in to one that is more mid table (after the players bought in to his ideas) . Could he step up?


{Ed001's Note - before he went to Bournemouth he was certainly very impressive in Spain. He seems to have turned it around on the south coast as well. Like all the other options, it just seems a bit soon for him to be getting the Liverpool job.}

No sure why anyone is moaning about the Saudi transfer window. No one is complaining about selling players to Turkey in the same period as they are players the team is happy to let go. Different leagues have different start/ finish dates, more/ fewer teams, etc.
We can't force other continents to follow Europe because it suits us.

I see it as a bit of a win-win for the youth that go to Chelsea's academy tbh. They get the best coaching available, competition to push them harder and there is a slim chance of making it to the first team (James, Colwill, RLC, etc) . If they don't make it, many other clubs will give them a chance.
The important thing is that they are likely to be the best players they can be in the long run.
Having Poch as the manager should also help some of the kids break through where they previously may not have been given a chance.

I thought Southgate had a contract waiting for him to sign. It's up to him to decide to walk away. I don't think he'll sign but the worrying thing is the England hierarchy don't see what 99% of everyone else does.
Can't wait for him to rock up at Old Trafford as the ETH replacement in December.

On the out of contract players, I'd try and keep both TAA and VVD as I think they still have plenty to give. As for Salah, if a Middle Eastern team doesn't come in for him this summer, I think he'll go on a free the year after (and no problem with that).

Personally, I'd like to see a proper CF come in with Gakpo as his bench replacement. I'd play Nunez on the left.
As for Diaz, I can't see Barcelona having enough money to purchase him so he'll probably stay and keep making noise about moving on.

Very harsh on Gomez imo. He was quality in the year we won the league next to VVD and has had some issues since (injuries and mental) . He’s not turned in to a bad player overnight and can get back to where he was with some confidence and a run at CB.

No point in buying a top quality DM when Slot doesn't play with that position. Waste of money and we don't have the luxury of stocking up on players or not making the most of our cash.

Ronaldinho and then Jay-Jay Okocha for me. Both played with a smile on their face and represented proper entertainment. Something worth spending your money to watch rather than the more robotic players we tend to produce nowadays.
