It's a strange one. Not one I believe for various reasons, as he's not exactly hit the ground running in the Premier League.

I'm reading that Liverpool are looking to take Tanguy Ndombele on loan with an option to buy from Spurs.

Is there even a little bit of truth to this?


{Ed002's Note - I am sorry to disappoint you but I very much doubt there would be any such agreement being considered.}

1.) 11 May 2020 06:38:48
Thank you for the reply Ed002.

I can assure you, I'm not that disappointed.

2.) 11 May 2020 10:29:34
we are known to pouch up coming one or two kiddies like that every year though.

3.) 11 May 2020 21:05:08
He’s probably out of breath thinking about the rumour.



22 Apr 2020 18:14:11
I'm reading today that Liverpool are targeting Leeds' Kalvin Phillips.

I've seen Tottenham, Newcastle and maybe a couple of other clubs interested, but it's the first link I've seen between Phillips and Liverpool.

Is anyone any wiser?




12 Apr 2020 16:41:48
I've just read that when Phil Jones signed for Man United from Blackburn, Liverpool had made a bid and he rejected us.

Does anyone know if there's any truth to it?

If so, we certainly dodged a bullet, there.


1.) 12 Apr 2020 17:26:54
I think its very nice of mr jones to provide us with humour during this very difficult time.
Surely the last thing he should be doing is highlighting what a awful career he has had.
EP: I do believe we were interested but as you rightly say we dodged a massive bullet there.
Has he ever completed a season without being injured?

2.) 12 Apr 2020 18:40:49
He’s a nice collection of medals I’m sure he doesn’t care who’s laughin at him!

3.) 12 Apr 2020 19:02:31
I’m pretty sure it’s true yes and definitely a bullet dodged. I remember being gutted at the time because of all the hype around him.

4.) 12 Apr 2020 19:51:53
It’s an interesting question Epic.

I was listening on the radio the day he moved to United, it was transfer deadline day.

All the talk was that he was in a helicopter, heading to the Northwest to sign for us.

The rest is history.

5.) 12 Apr 2020 23:03:59
Jay dub red : right place at the right time, if utd had to rely on 11 phil joneses the outcome would have been very different indeed.
A lot of very average footballers from man utd got quite a medal haul and can count themselves very fortunate to have done so.

6.) 12 Apr 2020 23:20:29
Liverpool definitely wanted him. He was shown round by Kenny I think.
I liked him back then and for several seasons he was a good player.
Injuries disrupted his career.
I think he was a better player than Skrtel personally.

7.) 13 Apr 2020 14:01:33

He had one PL one Fa cup and one Europa league

Not exactly a huge amount

In fact Adam Lallana will have won more in a year then Jones has won since 2012.

8.) 13 Apr 2020 18:19:10
Hey, thanks for all the replies, guys.

It seems that he was very sought after if he is to be believed. He claims that he also had offers from Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal as well.

Sure, his injuries have badly affected his career. Or is it just that his ridiculous facial expression make him an easy target for jokes and memes.

9.) 14 Apr 2020 19:45:27
He looked a great player at Blackburn, at the time I would have certainly taken him in the squad.

10.) 15 Apr 2020 08:50:54
For what it is worth for the chat. I remember reading Harry Redknapp saying that every club in the premier league had a interest in him at that time.

11.) 15 Apr 2020 13:43:42
@Gaz827. Wow, I didn't know he was that highly rated.

I know he plays for Man United, but what a shame for the guy if he was tipped to be the next big thing.

Let's hope that Joe Gomez doesn't end like him, haha.



26 Jan 2020 08:19:38
Not a transfer rumour, but a rumour nonetheless, and I bet it's a first on here.

Madame Tussauds are going to make a wax figure of Mo Salah to exhibit in their London Museum.

I bet Mo would love that, haha.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 09:56:15
If someone is getting a wax statue, It's got to be origi.

2.) 26 Jan 2020 10:29:12
That’s nothing, Man Utd have got 3 waxwork figures in their midfield 🤣😂.

3.) 26 Jan 2020 11:59:04
And an £80m one playing CB Juicer.

4.) 26 Jan 2020 12:19:14
Nowhere near enough likes for that comment Juicer 😂.

5.) 26 Jan 2020 19:21:21
That's no rumour. It was all over Mo's twitter yesterday.

6.) 27 Jan 2020 14:03:39
i hear CR7's sculptor is available if needed.



25 Jan 2020 13:29:37
Just read that we are interested in signing Benfica's 18 yr old midfielder Rafael Brito.

He has a release clause in his contract of £38m. Surely that's a lot of money for an 18 year old. Is he that highly rated? Apparently Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested.


1.) 25 Jan 2020 16:00:41
We wouldn’t pay his release clause.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 20:08:42
I would hope not, SR, but I know very little about the lad.

I've done a little reading up on him and he hasn't even played for the first team yet, and apparently, as soon as he plays for the senior team, his release clause will go up.

I don't even know where this has originated from. I'm presuming the Portuguese media are to blame.

Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi has just landed awkwardly after a clash playing for Mainz and has gone to hospital with concussion.

He'll spend the night in hospital while being monitored.

YNWA Taiwo. Get well soon.


1.) 14 Jun 2020 21:17:22
Same here, OP.



15 May 2020 13:33:56
A little trivia question for everyone stuck at home bored.

What do Jan Molby, Jose Enrique, John Flanagan, Joe Allen, Phil Babb, Mamadou Sakho, Ricky Lambert, Christian Benteke, Curtis Jones, Sotirios Kyrgiakos and Pedro Chirivella all have in common?


1.) 15 May 2020 13:44:31
Other than never having won the EPL before, I'd guess they captained Liverpool for just one match?

2.) 15 May 2020 13:58:14
That's easy they all played for liverpool 🤣.

3.) 15 May 2020 14:01:17
Same birthday is just a guess.

4.) 15 May 2020 14:08:59
They are all soccer players.
They all played for liverpool at some time.
They are all male.

5.) 15 May 2020 15:58:21
@mdb was correct.

They've all captained Liverpool, but only once.

@Davey Sulls. We could go on forever. None of them are Chinese; None of them have played for Bromsgrove Rovers; They're all vulnerable to fire; All of them are tolerant to gluten; They're all flexitarians; They all have hair somewhere on their bodies; They all dislike El-Hadji Diouf, etc. etc.



06 May 2020 19:10:50
Ed002. A question for you specifically.

Do you know if sports insurance companies have a say in whether "Project Restart" can go ahead.

Should the unthinkable happen, and a player tragically dies, the club of that player will have him insured. The club would no doubt want to claim on that insurance.

If the sports insurance companies are going to pay out in such circumstances, surely they are part of the discussion? Or would they just claim that the insurance is void because of the situation?

I hadn't thought about it until recently, but surely ALL insurers of players would be against a restart as it increases their risk so much, and it is the initial risk that the initial premiums were priced on.

I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on this, and thank you in advance.


{Ed002's Note - (a) No they don't. (b) It was not a known issue when insurance was taken out so they could not claim unless they had a new policy.

The decisions are the responsibilities of the Premier League - the issue is not related to insurance companies but is on the table for multiple other reasons - such as the non playing 300-500 people who would be attending games, such as the incubation period, such as players themselves.}

1.) 06 May 2020 19:39:08
Thank you for the detailed response and I have to again say that I'm impressed that you have the answers that I was looking for.

I guess the fact that no-one is insured (which is how I understood your reply) is another major stumbling block.

I can understand why many clubs are against restarting and I understand that this is not one of their main issues, but it must be weighing on their minds.



08 Apr 2020 20:43:44
There are reports that with Lloris Karuis' loan ending with Basiktas, they are looking to sign Joe Hart, who will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Surely Karius can't have has such a bad loan spell that they'd turn to Joe Hartinstead of signing Karuis permanently? That's a real sign of bad times.


1.) 08 Apr 2020 22:05:55
I gather his spell over there has been a mixed bag. Makes good saves, decent in 1v1s and good with his feet, and then peppers it all with some bizarre errors.

I think the bloke just doesn't concentrate properly in games or something.

We could sell him Everton, maybe? He'd be Or would that be too cruel to him?

2.) 08 Apr 2020 22:11:36
Bear in mind too that Karius' agreed fee is reported at £9.5m, and given our recent record on pricing our players, I doubt we'll shift much on it. That's a lot for a bloke who's as likely to make a top quality save as he is to come flying 25 yards out of his goal to cut out a pass, and miss both the ball and the opposition forward.

3.) 09 Apr 2020 03:17:13
I have been trying to keep an eye on our loans out and karius by all accounts has had a mixed bag. A blinder followed by a howler and has in public blamed his bad performances on the concussion and bright lights in Turkey. I'm not naive so I know he has no future at liverpool. Bit I wish him well elsewhere. I hope his time with us doesn't impact his career negatively and he gets his act together because imo he spends too much time on social media.

As always. Thanks to all the ads and stay safe everyone.

4.) 09 Apr 2020 17:51:32
Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm perfectly aware that his loan spell has been a mixed bag. What does surprise me though is that they are turning their attention to Joe Hart as a replacement.

Surely there are better goalkeepers in their twilight years that they could attract?

{Ed025's Note - joe hart is bloody awful EP but he is still an upgrade on karius the clown, mind you so would a bag of cement.. :)

5.) 09 Apr 2020 21:24:55
Ed25, I know Karius was poor but compared to a bag of cement? You mean a bag of cement like Jordan Pickford who leads the PL in errors committed this season? You can find a decent mashup of his blunders on youtube, man. Brilliant.

{Ed025's Note - i gave up defending pickford a long time ago RM, he is a terible keeper...still miles better than karius though mate..



01 Apr 2020 08:44:33
I know that talk of the season being void isn't popular on here but can I just air a theory regarding a couple of other clubs (who do not have their own pages)? Maybe Ed002 might be able to fill in some light on the topic.

If the season was voided, it would mean that Bolton Wanderers wouldn't get relegated. Would it mean that they would start the next season on -12 points? If they didn't, then it would mean that they've got off scott free.

Also, if the season was voided, could it save Bury FC? They were expelled during this season, and if the season is voided, it would mean that they were expelled during a season that didn't happen.

I know you probably won't know for sure. I'm just interested to know what could theoretically happen.


{Ed002's Note - Nobody is discussing individual cases right now Eric but if the season were to be made completely void then it would return Bolton to the position that they were at the start of the season. Obviousl it would not save Bolton.}

1.) 01 Apr 2020 13:03:30
So teams start in the same position, but others teams would be allowed strengthened their squads so they could find themselves in a much worse position🤷‍♀️. Yeah sounds totally fair.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you point is.}

2.) 01 Apr 2020 19:17:29
OP, voiding the season is not popular among the clubs themselves either so it is not just unpopular here, according to Ed02 and the stuff in the media. Even UEFA don't want it. Completing the season is top priority now and even tho all options are on the table.

3.) 03 Apr 2020 18:30:18
Thank you for the reply Ed002. I'm actually not a fan at all of Bolton, but only due to my absolute nemesis supporting them. It's quite reassuring that they'd end up in the same place.

And @RedMeister, I'm entirely with you and think that the season should be concluded even if it took until December. There's just no fair way of dealing with it, otherwise.

My local town club is Chorley, and they've been bottom of the National League/ Conference all season and were surely due to be relegated. I'm unsure if that will be resolved though as it's been decided that everything below the EFL will be void. Let's see how that one pans out.

I really like Adama Traore. He's gone from just being a sprinter with no end product, to fantastic strong player with skill, power and pace.

I do think it however makes no sense unless Salah is leaving. I'm not just playing the "if we sign a top player, we have to sell one" brigade. We have Salah playing there and doing great right now, and Elliott as his long term replacement (who looks the real deal) who will get a lot more substitute appearances next season. It just doesn't make sense to sign a right winger for 50mil+.

I'd love to have a player at Liverpool with that name. My 11 year old daughter's name is Maia, and maybe it would pique her interest in watching Liverpool more if there was a player with that name.

Apart from that, I cannot add anymore to the conversation as I've never seen him play.

Unfortunately, I think the club are only offering him a 5 year contract with a view to protect their asset.

They'd give him 6-7 games next season, then look to sell him to the highest bidder.

Best thing for the lad to do would be to leave on a free. I wish him all the best and I think he'll have a good career as I rate him highly.

Aren't Vasco de Gama really struggling financially, Ed002? I read a couple of days ago that this could make them accept a much lower offer, but I guess if there's plenty of interest, they may not need to.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Brazilian sides are struggling and as I said in the reply, realistically the price will be considerably lower than they have been asking.}

A 20 point deduction is a completely daft idea. Especially when that wouldn't be a deterrent as we're 25 points clear.

I know no-one really wants an asterix next to us, but if that asterix meant "still won the title despite being given a 20 point deduction".

Mo's on the bench. What's the situation with Robbo? He's neither on the bench or listed as unavailable. I'm hoping it's just a case of he hasn't been able to get as fit as the rest of the squad in time but won't be far behind.

Also Keita starts ahead of Ox and Gini. Time to shine Naby lad. Your Liverpool future hangs in the balance, based on the next 9 games.

@kingkenny7. I completely agree that he should stay at Swansea.

I know it's a cruel world, but I fear that may not happen due to the disruptance of AFCON. When Mane and Salah go to play in that tournament, our front line will probably be Firmino, Origi and Ox (if they're all fit) .

He may end up going there from Jan to Jun again, but we can't leave ourselves too exposed for that period. If Werner had been coming in, it would be a different story, but as it is now, during AFCON, we're going to be very light up top.

For the same reason that I couldn't believe Sheffield United's goal being disallowed.

The first time in 9000 matches that Hawkeye has made the wrong decision. Who does it benefit? Of course, it's Manchester United.

I've rated him for months now. For ages, he was just this big fast guy with no end product.

Now, he's got so much strength, passing ability and intelligence. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back at Barcelona. He's that good.

I'd love us to sign him, but I think that's wishful thinking.

The game today was nothing until he came on. He completely changed it.

Thank you Ed002. I have very little knowledge about what's been happening in the MLB. Your knowledge astounds me that it extends that far.

Do you agree that their situation in the States affects their ability to spend here in this country. I do realise that at the moment we don't particularly need to spend, but if this was two years ago, where would FSG's priority lie? I'm not trying to vindicate FSG whatsoever, and they have been the best thing that has happened to our club in decades. I'm just trying to gauge if there are priorities between Liverpool and the Red Sox and where their main priorities lie.


{Ed002's Note - No, the owners cannot gift money to the club to buy players beyond what FFP commands. The club has to be self-sufficient and has to pay the debts that are coming due for improvements to the stadium, for the building of the new training centre and for past transfers. You seem to misunderstand the finances.}
