Just read Bayern not likely to make Coutinho loan permanent, such a shame a great talent going backwards. Loved him when he was with us but we are a better team without him. Any ideas were he ends up?


{Ed002's Note - Philippe Coutinho (AM/LW) after missing out on Bruno Fernandes and Hakim Ziyech Spurs have enquired after Coutinho and been told that a loan fee would €30M for a season with an option to buy at €50M at the end of the season with any loaning club paying half his wages. I would expect any interested side to look for a significant reduction in such a deal. The player is being offered around PL sides. Barcelona will have to keep him if no takers are found although with a small amount of money owed to Liverpool still there may be room for them to negotiate - but I don't expect them to be interested. Leicester might offer a solution to get him off the books - but again there would be a need for some negotiation. Right now Barcelona will likely cut their losses and get the best deal they can as soon as they can - his representative may look to some sort of creative deal with an English side - but that could cause a delay.}

1.) 24 May 2020 15:37:18
would wages be a problem for Leicester and spurs on permeant deals ed.

{Ed002's Note - His wage demands would have to drop considerably from his €215 per week to move to any side on a permanent basis.}

2.) 24 May 2020 18:43:04
I think if Barcelona would deal at £50m we should really consider taking him back as long as he would take a good reduction of wages.

Also would love Timo Werner. If we could sell a few, Origi, Shaqiri, Lovren and Wilson for example we might make enough to cover one of them signings. Also with the wages saved from them along with Llanana who I suspect will move on so Coutinho taking his position in the squad.



07 Apr 2020 11:32:35
Hi Ed002 do we have any interest in Ferran Torres is Sevilla please?


{Ed002's Note - Ferran Torres (RW/LW) considered as a potential Jadon Sancho replacement but likely priced out of a move to Borussia Dortmund - will end up at Real Madrid or Barcelona in all probability at some point. But, if Salah were to depart Liverpool he could well become an option for them but for now that is not the case. The player has made no secret of his desire to join Barcelona at some point. Valencia have a replacement lined up but the €100M asking price would need to drop to make a transfer anywhere viable this summer. Juventus has enquired after his availability but would need to make sales to fund a move. A third party has suggested to Manchester United that Ferran Torres would be a better option to Jadon Sancho as the deal would be far, far cheaper for them.}

1.) 07 Apr 2020 14:12:20
Cheers Ed for the detailed reply mate and also the information down the page on TW and DC very useful updates.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 07 Apr 2020 16:16:04
Hi Ed, do we still hold interest in Ben White or Ben Godfrey? If so, I assume they'd be an alternative to DC as opposed to instead of?


{Ed002's Note - I am comfortable saying that Ben Godfrey can be scratched.

Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City have dropped their interest and are looking at others. Real Madrid has a sustained interest, but the focus will be getting a priority signing done first, seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC. Barcelona have him on their list of CBs but money is going to be an issue this summer and they will look to horse trade - and are now in talks with the club of another player. Priority for Barcelona is like Real Madrid - get their priority transfer completed and then see where they are. Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer. If this happens, I think it would be the big move for the club this summer and would leave Gomez picking up pieces across the defence. May be viable for Liverpool to include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal.
Ben White (CB) potentially the pick of the younger home grown CBs - if Diego Carlos were to arrive or a CB were not to leave, he can also be scratched. Has a significant advantage over Carlos as he is home grown - and Liverpool has a HG problem. Might well become the preferred choice over Carlos as a Lovren replacement - but it would push Joe Gomez down the pecking order.

3.) 08 Apr 2020 17:29:05
If he is a Lovren replacement how will it push Gomez down the pecking order?

4.) 09 Apr 2020 14:10:45
White would push Gomez down the pecking order? must be some player.

5.) 09 Apr 2020 14:15:00
Thanks ed, i guess from your perspective what would you want to see happen in the CB space?

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos would be a very good buy as a partner for van Dyke but it won't ease the HG issue, and there is serious interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona. Ben White is seen as the best of the English youngsters and Brighton know he wants to make the step up - and Liverpool are very keen on him and he is five years younger than Diego Carlos.}

6.) 09 Apr 2020 19:32:20
Anyway we sign both Ed if Lovren leaves?

7.) 12 Apr 2020 01:40:26
Hi Ed002

When you say you think it maybe the big move for Liverpool this summer, can I assume you don't believe Timo Werner to arrive to Pool?
Or, you don't see that as a big move?

Sorry for the questions, I just wanted to clarify on your end so I have a better understanding.

Kind regards
Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - The situation with Timo Werner remains unchanged.

Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud - but they have other options. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - equally if other clubs were not able to sign their targets, interest in TW might increase. Atletico signing Cavani would likely kill off their interest and they have financial issues. There is clearly interest from Klopp, but would Timo Werner be interested in a move to sit on the bench at Liverpool most of the time? If the answer is yes, or if Firmino is leaving then it makes sense. Many of the fans expect Klopp to numerous players without anyone leaving and then completely change tactics and rotate them - it makes zero sense and the club has to meet Home Grown quotas as well. Last summer there was an approach from PSG who wanted Werner as a Cavani replacement - in the end Cavani stayed and they took Icardi on loan. PSG are concerned about being shunned by Icardi and have looked at TW but have not declared any interest. Mr Mourinho is keen for Spurs to take him but there are concerns about the cost. The interest of Dortmund has gone with the signing of Haarland - but could return in the summer if Real Madrid could prise Haaland away. Bayern Munich were never going to do business in January and played down all transfer talk but there is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski, who will be 32 at the start of next season, is going to need replacing in the next 18 months - and the plan had always been that it would be Timo Werner - they could yet look to do something or perhaps suggest he waits another year at RBL who have offered a new contract. The player has always said he wants to play for Manchester United one day but a move last summer was not possible and then Werner said he wanted to play for Bayern Munich over all others. There was a third party trying to negotiate for a BM move last summer but they were a long way apart on price and RBL looked to extend. As BM were expected to need Werner this coming summer, a release clause was agreed with his new contract that would make him available at a low fee so RBL would keep him another year and then he could move to Bayern Munich this summer. Now after a potential illegal approach he clearly wants to join Liverpool - the riot act has been read to him over public statements and his club is very unhappy at Liverpool.

There was a meeting between RBL and Inter Milan in London in mid February when Inter were in town to discuss transfers with Chelsea. Inter enquired after the availability of TW but were told by RBL that they were resigned to losing Werner as the player had his head turned by Liverpool – although Liverpool had yet to approach RBL at all.

Although the fat kid from Bolton has again announced it as a done deal - as he has done for more than a year, it simply isn't true although a large number of Liverpool fans think it is. RBL may look to keeping the player for a further year if Bayern Munich are not prepared to utilise the release clause just yet. Or perhaps Liverpool will do the honest thing and approach RBL with a very good offer to tempt them to sell?}

8.) 12 Apr 2020 13:38:19
Thanks for the great reply .

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



06 Apr 2020 21:07:46
Read earlier that the PL are in advanced talks with the Government about starting playing the matches again in June. Not sure if this is the case or it's BS but would be good news. As long as it's safe to do so.




29 Mar 2020 15:16:23
Hi Ed's, away from all he usual talk of the season being voided or not and the horrible situation we all find our selves in isolated at home, is there anything different developed or been muted regarding transfers, any potential new player target for us? Or indeed anything changed on the outgoing side?


{Ed002's Note - Although the fat kid from Bolton have assured Liverpool fans that deals for Werner, Sancko, Mbappe and Havertz have beeb agreed already, they havent't been. The only change I can think of is Liverpool again returning to watch Viktor Tsyhankov (RW) again before football was stopped. He would be a wildcard Salah replacement.}

1.) 29 Mar 2020 15:56:22
Cheers Ed. Not heard of him until you mentioned him previously.

{Ed002's Note - The lady from Marseille was in Kiev just before the lockdown and had bee told €50M was the price and both Bayern Munich and Liverpool had been watching him again recently.}

2.) 29 Mar 2020 16:05:44
Just checked him out again and his stats in YouTube, I know it’s not the best way to rate a player but he looks very good imo and 40 goals and assists is a good return for a winger.

3.) 29 Mar 2020 16:18:38
Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

4.) 29 Mar 2020 16:27:57
Jesus, I just read the Fat Kid's twitter where he boasted the Klopp gave him exclusive live coverage of the Liverpool v Shrewsbury game.

Yeah, I got 'exclusive live coverage' too with an illegal internet stream.

{Ed001's Note - funny I got live coverage without one, I must thank Jurgen for that then. Previously I thought it was down to BeIN Sports but clearly I was wrong. Good job Bolton Boy informed me of my error.}

5.) 29 Mar 2020 16:46:59
That is some team to look forward to next season with those 4 additions. Can the Bolton kid arrange for the transfer of Lautaro Martinez too, I'm sure Klopp can squeeze him in somewhere, maybe play a 2-8 formation.

6.) 29 Mar 2020 18:11:16
Been reading that Klopp like Dembele also from Barca. Ed002 did say a while back we asked about his availability but nothing more. He would be expensive probably thick end of €90. Then we are back to thinking that someone has to leave for him to arrive so probably a no go.



19 Feb 2020 19:00:00
Ed's do we have any interest in Rilot Rashica.


{Ed002's Note - My notes say: Milot Rashica (LW/RW) another possible Jadon Sancho replacement or indeed a Leroy Sane option and there is interest from both Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Werder Bremen don't want to sell (but could be relegated). Rashica plays predominently on the left, like several of the may Sancho replacements, but is seen as versatile. Dortmund are looking at a number of possible Sanch replacements that they have identified and others also play predominently on the left. I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Werder Bremen nor any declaration of interest from his agent or lawyer but it would be interesting if their were - he would certainly provide good cover for Mane.}

1.) 19 Feb 2020 20:33:43
Thank you Ed002.

2.) 20 Feb 2020 06:57:06
Welcome back Virgil 👌🏻.

3.) 20 Feb 2020 08:39:05
And the love affair continues.

4.) 20 Feb 2020 03:14:30
Thanks, Ed. I was just about to ask the same question. Sounds more realistic than Sancho to me, to be honest.

I see Raphael Honigstein is jumping on the Werner bandwagon now with his comments.

Another hat trick yesterday, what amazes me is he always seems so deep in a midfield roll and links the play yet has scored 30 goals this season so clearly a finisher also. Would love him in our system.


1.) 25 May 2020 10:44:46
Werner is a cracking player and let's be honest would be a great addition to the squad. If we got him it would be great and he would add a lot to an already world class attack. If we don't get him then we still have a world class front 3. Our front 3 play a lot of minutes and seem to avoid injury and tiredness. With this season possibly running into next and the prospect of losing 2 of them to the African Nations (If it happens) then this summer could be an ideal time to add that 1 quality forward player to our squad.



24 May 2020 18:15:35
I made the mistake of joining Tw***er during the kick down, only goon there to to have a laugh but I can't believe just many reds fans really believe that it's a given we will win the league. Tweeting "only a matter of time before number 19 arrives", or the "null and voiders will be quite from now on". Or drafting pictures of our players with the trophy. Fact is this is not the case as has been explained unless the season gets finished of which is still looking very unlikely for all the reasons and unanswered questions that remain. I guess they are Trying to be positive and being optimistic. There are going to be a lot of upset fans soon. Hope I'm wrong but only a mater of time before a line is drawn.


1.) 24 May 2020 18:28:27
Why do you keep telling us what is happening on Twitter? Who are you trying to convince?

2.) 24 May 2020 19:12:53
Not trying to convince anyone at all Thunderbird. Just amused at some of the stuff in there, tbh might delete my account as it’s just full of crap.

3.) 24 May 2020 19:29:52
Daretodream - Why do you feel the need to regurgitate Ed02’s comments all the time. We know the situation, yes there are many LFC fans on there who may be getting carried away and I don’t think it helps with this alleged statement about the trophy parade. even if we do restart we have to win 2 games first and finish the season but I don’t think the situation is as grim as you would have us believe. Ed02 has alluded to the obstacles in the way but let’s take it a day/ week at a time and just see what happens.

4.) 24 May 2020 19:36:27
Fair enough hunts, I get what your saying mate. I guess I need to lighten up a bit.

5.) 24 May 2020 19:47:32
DTD hunts is right, speculating now is pointless. Ed002 has kindly kept us updated and what will be will be.
Personally I think it’ll be back around the 19th June.

6.) 24 May 2020 20:01:09
Daretodream, It appears more likely that the season will be completed now. As for Twatter, don't bother.

7.) 24 May 2020 20:51:45
Get what your all saying chaps and your right. Sorry to be so negative.

8.) 24 May 2020 23:29:36
We are getting that cup no matter.

9.) 25 May 2020 00:36:09
No need to apologise DTD. With everything going on we're all going to have moments of negativity. And you're only going off the information we've kindly been provided with by Eds.

Its unprecedented times, so there's always a chance that obstacles could be worked around - if it goes that far.

Best to just not let it weigh you down as it might actually turn out OK.

10.) 25 May 2020 00:50:37
Daretodream hats off to you. I read your post and didn't think too much of it and was surprised at other's responses, which you took really well: you don't see that on Twitter :)
Haven't kept up to date too much lately with what's been discussed. Does it really still look like the season will just be finished, with no results as to standings and relegation? Sorry if this has been done to death.

11.) 25 May 2020 02:12:22
No need to apologise d2d mate. We all have opinions and would be boring if we all had the same ones.

Personally I think it's a bit early to gloat, especially seeing as how we haven't even made it mathematically certain. City are phenomenal and could definitely win all their games. And we have been a phenomenon in the sense we haven't won the pl since 1990. We have also been phenomenally brilliant this season. It would be typical if it was voided.
I think it'll be finished though. Dunno why, just a feeling.

12.) 25 May 2020 09:17:10
Cheers for responses guys, appreciate everyone and you all make some valid points. I guess truth is non of us actually know what happens from here on in terms of the season ending so I’m going to be more open minded. Have a great day everyone sun is shining, bbqs and beer is very much needed. Enjoy 😉.



21 May 2020 17:11:15
Ed I see that clubs have returned to training this week, Are they being tested every Few days then on arrival to the grounds? Just wondering what lengths they are going to to ensure players don't return home then potentially spread it.


{Ed002's Note - Twice a week but there are no immediate results so the will return home regardless. Games will come before the incubation period so the problems won't go away.}

1.) 21 May 2020 18:16:46
Ok mate cheers, twice a week is enough I guess. Only way problems will go away is if no one at any club catches it, which is not very likely at all.

2.) 22 May 2020 00:06:22
Surely it's just a matter of time before the first domino falls?

3.) 22 May 2020 06:56:08
Burkeyboy, this is a football page, take it to the Dominos site.

4.) 22 May 2020 09:46:21
I’ve taken to the Dominos site way too much this lockdown 🍕.

5.) 22 May 2020 14:21:55
Although the recent results gave a low positive total, there will surely be players contracting the virus over the coming months (even year (s) ) .

I suppose it will test the Premier Leagues resolve, and whether they will be willing to accept the virus as the norm, and 'plough on'to complete the fixtures regardless.

I wonder if players are being advised/ ordered to pretty much continue self-isolating while training and playing to reduce theirs and other's risk of .

6.) 23 May 2020 00:29:45
Seems like it's Watford playing all the Dominoes so far Burkeyboy.

7.) 23 May 2020 23:44:17
I don't think we will see any players contracting it due to closed doors football.

And om not just saying that in case any pl chiefs are watching. I presume easy all os a utd fan. (only joking kidda.



20 May 2020 20:16:50
Anyone know who our first Game is against if/ when we return behind closed doors in June?


{Ed002's Note - They will resume the order as scheduled so Newcastle (A) - but they have to play out the two late games first.}

1.) 20 May 2020 21:50:49
Sorry Ed which 2 late games?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City, Arsenal, Sheffield United and Aston Villa have a game to play.}

2.) 21 May 2020 16:57:24
That makes sense then everyone will of played the same amount of games if the season is stopped again.

3.) 21 May 2020 16:57:53
That makes sense. Everyone will of played the same amount of games then if the season is cancelled.

4.) 21 May 2020 20:43:02
Ed002, do you reckon those games will be played before the agreed resumption date. Say they want the 1st weekend to be the 19th (as I think itll get pushed back from the 12th) is it likely those games will be played the midweek prior?

{Ed002's Note - There is no "agreed resumption date". The plan is to play those two games first so we have a baseline. But it is a tentative plan at present with many things to be resolved first.}

5.) 23 May 2020 07:03:18
I would hope we play Man City first and beat them to get this title sorted.



19 May 2020 18:56:25
Taking all into account Ed do you think a June start fit the PL is unrealistic at this stage or to early to say?


{Ed002's Note - Unless something changes I expect the Premier League to make an announcement, perhaps Tuesday or Wednesday next week that they intend to start around the third week of June. That will be the target they will work towards.}

1.) 19 May 2020 21:09:41
Ok mate thank you, I guess an increase in cases or other factors could well change that between now and then. Will see. Thanks again.

2.) 19 May 2020 23:04:17
ed do you think Uefa and fifa thinking about there own competitions have not helped sort this all out and if they wanted to finish the season they could have just waited a bit longer before restarting leagues. Winter breaks could have gone next season and some of the international friendly's removed to help with fixtures next season.

{Ed002's Note - FIFA has delayed tournaments and have assisted the leagues. UEFA has no control over the domestic leagues but are intent on fulfilling the CL, EL and starting qualification for next season in August. Hence the July 31 date - which might be able to move a week or so. The drop dead date for the start of the Premier League for next season is September 12.}

3.) 19 May 2020 23:33:20
ed what do you think they will do with CL and el qualification next season for the early rounds.

{Ed002's Note - The will hold them and want to avoid a discussion about two leg games. But it is a while a way.}

4.) 20 May 2020 17:02:15
While uefa will want their cashcow to carry on as usual, here in Wales the police are checking number plates and fining visitors.

There's no way teams are going to be jetting around Europe any time soon, the virus hotspots, quarantine ect it's not feasible.
