Hi Ed, I know you said the other day that the Neco Williams to Forest deal was off, is that still the case? If so what’s happened?


{Ed002's Note - Neco Williams (RB) Interest has been shown by Fulham and it is clear that he has not clear future path at Liverpool and wants to move on, but they see the Liverpool valuation as significant and have an idea to speak to an Italian side offering a player around right now as a much better option. As long as the price asked is reasonable then perhaps the summer will see him move on. Nottingham Forest made an offer but they are now a wild card option as they did not meet the asking price and have signed another option as they think Williams is being priced out of a move. Price again will be everything and if not over-priced he should get a move.}

1.) 04 Jul 2022 20:20:57
Ed002 I can’t see him getting a permanent move this summer now think he will get a late loan move now as you say think he has been priced out of a move for this summer. Hopefully he gets his move but I can’t see it hopefully if he ends up with a loan he has a good season and World Cup.

2.) 04 Jul 2022 23:38:47
I hadn't realised the transfer window must be nearly shut so @Grino? Bit overly dramatic just because someone isn't gone by the 4th July.

3.) 04 Jul 2022 23:31:00
Thank you for the reply Ed!
For the sake of the lad (who I think with game time could easily be a solid RB option in the premier league) we should lower the asking price by a few million.

{Ed002's Note - It should be realistic.}

4.) 05 Jul 2022 03:26:33
@Grino, I think it’s a bit early to write off permanent moves for players at this stage - there’s still over 8 weeks before the window closes and as you said the day before yesterday the situation can change very quickly.

5.) 05 Jul 2022 07:59:09
I think there where 3 clubs interested in him Forest Fulham and Southampton. Fulham and Forest look like they have signed other players. Southampton all ready have 2 right backs so am not sure if they would want to pay what we want.

6.) 06 Jul 2022 13:57:19
If Southampton already have 2 right backs why were / are they interested in him then? We don’t know what Liverpool’s plans are even though we support the club so I’m not sure how we are supposed to know what other clubs’ plans are.



01 Jun 2022 09:36:43
A lot of rumours circulating we’re going to make a move for Gavi from Barcelona. I know it’s been asked before but I don’t believe something that has been recently. For a 17 year old he looks a serious talent!

Just wondering if the Ed’s have heard anything on this?

To add to this, if he were to sign due to his age would he be considered home grown if he signed a 4/ 5 year contract or would he have to play in England for that duration?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Gavi (CM) Barcelona will not sell and that has been shared with Manchester City, Chelsea and PSG who enquired. Liverpool and Bayern Munich have sent scouts to watch him. He will get a new contract with a Buy Out clause which will make him pretty much untouchable. Still a kiddie but resisting a new contract.

He cannot move to England before he turns 18 and needs to play under the English/Welsh FA for three years before he is considered HG.}

1.) 01 Jun 2022 10:18:24
Thank you Ed great response!

2.) 01 Jun 2022 11:34:16
Doesn't he turn 18 a couple of days before the start of the new season? What is his problem with a new deal at Barca? Does he want to leave? If he does want to leave (& as you've said multiple times in the past) wouldn't Barcelona be better off to not keep someone that doesn't want to stay? Just wondering.

{Ed002's Note - It is all to do with money. And he does turn 18 before the transfer window closes.}

3.) 01 Jun 2022 12:25:04
Thanks, Ed002. Do you think the current football model is sustainable? I'm very worried about where the financial strains will take us eventually. Anyway, thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Many clubs are struggling following the pandemic, some have huge debt, there are too many professional sides in England, ...}

4.) 01 Jun 2022 17:57:32
I saw that Barcelona need to sell for over 150 million before they can buy Lewandowski, league economic rules, wondering if player exchange would be a way to circumvent that, Mane to Bayern, Lewandowski to Barca, Gavi to Liverpool, probably some cash kicked back to Barcelona because of Gavi's age.

{Ed002's Note - No.}



26 May 2021 12:03:44
Hi Ed’s, have Liverpool shown any interest in Latauro Martinez?
I think he’s an excellent player and one that would slot nicely into the team.
What do you think of him as a player?
I tried searching for a player profile on him but couldn’t find one, please could he be added to the list?


{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool have not shown any interest in him.}

1.) 26 May 2021 15:39:56
He would be a lot of money too don't think he would be in our monetary range this window.



12 May 2021 18:51:07
Hi Ed’s.
I’m not sure what out of contract players there are at the club.
But one player I’m gutted didn’t get much of a chance is larouci.
Have any clubs approached him ahead of next season? As I’m keen to follow his progress.


{Ed002's Note - Adrian and Wijnaldum are out of contract and Kabak's loan ends. Larouci and Sharif from the U23s are also out of contract. Yasser Larouci (LWB) did something to upset some at the club and should have no problem finding a new side - perhaps in France or Turkey. There has been interest in the past from three sides but I am not aware of recent approaches.}

1.) 12 May 2021 20:12:33
Thank you Ed.



11 Apr 2021 16:04:40
More talk that were very close to completing the signing of Konate. Do the Ed’s no anything?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "how close" a transfer is or if Liverpool have now spoken with his club, but as has been explained he is a clear target as a starter to replace Joe Gomez.}

1.) 11 Apr 2021 21:05:20
If he's better than Gomez. less than £30m is a steal.

{Ed0666's Note - Gomez on his day is world class. Konate has tonnes of potential but prone to injury like Gomez

2.) 11 Apr 2021 21:48:34
We must be in the business of accumulating injury prone defenders.

3.) 11 Apr 2021 22:47:10
Don’t think he’s actually that injury prone. He had a recurring muscle injury that after the third required surgery has been okay since. Has had an ankle injury recently that’s kept him out for a while.
Looking at games missed between him and matip, matip has missed far more games over the past 3 seasons. Gomez seems to pick up niggles that keep him him out for a few weeks at a time. (Barring the 2 big injuries he’s had)

Konate, is a must for me.

4.) 12 Apr 2021 03:58:53
If we sign him then it would brake sense to keep Kabak and let Matip move on for fitness reasons alone.

5.) 12 Apr 2021 07:16:06
Kabak looks a good backup to a first choice pairing. hope we tie that up too this summer.

6.) 12 Apr 2021 08:18:21
Neither are injury prone if the injuries they have are impact injuries caused by nasty challenges or freak injuries like the one that took Gomez out this season. Matip, Studge, Agger, Keita? They are injury prone due non impact injuries like knocks and niggles.

7.) 12 Apr 2021 10:23:04
We need 3 first choice CBs anyways next season. VVD and Gomez won't play every 3-4 days until early October just as a precaution. Makes sense to have a top CB like Konate in the team coz of this situation.

8.) 12 Apr 2021 11:08:20
We could sensibly rotate the cbs through the season, play horses for courses, nat Phillips can play against slow attacks but have a physical presence as can kabak, gomez konate can deal with fast paced attacks with a physical presence and virgil can deal with everything.

9.) 12 Apr 2021 11:46:22
VVD, Konate and Gomez as our first 3 CBs would be a solid start to next season.

10.) 13 Apr 2021 02:03:53
Can't Konate play right back? Move Trent into the middle?

10 Aug 2022 00:21:39
There’s a lot of negativity around at the moment and in some cases rightfully so.

I do think the squad is crying out for another top midfielder, but I can’t see us making any more signings (unless there is a serious long term injury to somebody in the middle) . If that’s the case and Klopp is happy then I’m happy.

We’re still a world class team with a world class coach and we will still compete for trophies. Is our squad better than Cities? No probably not but our starting 11 can comfortably match them stride for stride.

We know how good a manager Klopp is and we know that he’ll make sure he does his absolute best to get the absolute best out of the players at his disposal. Whatever happens this season or next season or the one after that. Jurgen Klopp is a red and he’s a Liverpool legend.


1.) 10 Aug 2022 01:19:48
To be honest the amount of negativity after 1 game is pretty embarrassing. The posters that accuse the players of lacking bottle are the same ones throwing in the title after 1 game. Klopp and this team have shown multiple times you can’t write them off and yet here we go again.

2.) 10 Aug 2022 08:19:17
Rightfully so?
Considering what the club has achieved on the pitch and with the stadium expansion I would say that anybody showing any negativity is just that way in life generally.
Some people sift through the good moments just to find misery to wallow in.

3.) 10 Aug 2022 08:59:35
Looks like Bellingham is top choice, reckon Hendo will back up fabinho elliot will get more of a start with naby and thiago staying, to rotate compete with other two.

Another depends on how youngsters do like Morton.

Next summer window as we always do 1 or two will come in youngster's will develop.

4.) 10 Aug 2022 09:34:59
Good, positive thread op. I have stated in previous posts I'd swap out both naby and ox for one robust mid that can play 30+ games e. g. gini in his final season. But some of the hot takes in the media are ridiculous.

With Milner probably finishing up as a player this season, and the susceptibilty to injury of hendo and fab over a season, I do think it would be sensible for the club to assess their 'list' and bring someone in now, moreso given thiagos october injury prognosis.

If milly was 29 or kelliot/ jones/ carvalho had played a few more games we wouldn't be talking about a new mid.

5.) 10 Aug 2022 20:55:18
We need more than just Bellingham next summer. 2-3 at least. Milner will retire probably, Keita may leave - Ox will go etc.



15 Mar 2022 11:41:00
As much as it’s great to see Manchester City (in particular Bernardo Silvia) rattled. We can’t rely on them to drop more points this season.

We have to focus on our own game and make sure we take the pressure of ourselves and put the pressure all onto city.

Go about our business like we have been doing and then at the end of the season what will be will be.

The crunch game is the the game between us and city and I have no doubt we can and will beat them.
But like I say we just have to go about our business keep winning games even if it’s an ugly 1-0 or 2-1 just keep the momentum going and see where we are come the end of the season.

Itd be fantastic to win the quadruple but I don’t want myself or others to get carried away just take it one game at a time!



1.) 15 Mar 2022 12:22:17
Tomorrow night is more important than the City game.

2.) 15 Mar 2022 12:31:22
Call me insane but i don’t get this whole ‘we can’t rely on them to drop more points this season’ thing. I think people have been conned into thinking this seasons City side are better than they are.

They had a bit of a shaky start to the season, then they had a decent run for 6 games or so. Then the Omicron wave hit, which didn’t affect their squad at all but did affect everyone else’s. They were playing against seriously weakened teams every game for a good month, while everyone else was toiling with availability issues and inconsistencies in the rulebook.

Then they’ve had at least 4 games off the top of my head since then where they have been handed wins by some of the most shocking refereeing decisions that i’ve ever seen. The penalty reversal against Southampton, the penalty they were gifted against Wolves, the Arsenal sending off and penalty, the Everton handball. All decisions were very late in the game, against opposition that were besting them, and none of them were even close to being debatable. Big teams often get controversial or debate worthy decisions but there is often at least a conversation to be had, yet all of these decisions were universally accepted as some of the worst we’ve ever seen.

Bearing all that in mind, maybe it’s the case that City have been saved from dropping points earlier in the season through good fortune alone. Obviously we have to keep up our level and the Arsenal game will be extremely difficult, as well almost every game in the run in, but are we sure City are as scary and intimidating as they are being made out to be? Has to be acknowledged that they are creating lots of chances still, but whereas they should have a Kane or a Ronaldo to be finishing them off, they opted for Grealish instead. Therein lies a large part of their problem.

Maybe them dropping points every 3/ 4 games really is an accurate reflection of their current level?

3.) 15 Mar 2022 12:33:32
Dont see why fans should not dream of a quadruple. As of now its possible so why not. We need to hope our players stay fit and its on. Fans would be better putting positive energy into dreaming of 4 trophies instead of contract situations. Always looking into the future instead of living in present.

4.) 15 Mar 2022 13:06:33
OP, pretty sure nobody is relying on City to drop any points so not sure where you are getting that from. We have to win ALL our games to win the title and City dropping 7 points in the last 7 games does not change any of that.

Robbo said in an interview during the 19/ 20 season that the mindset of the team was, "Assume City will win all their games". I believe that is the mindset of team now so if City drop points? Yay BUT we got to take care of business regardless of that. If you want something done right, you got to do it yourself and that is the position we are in right now and that is all you want in the end: Control your own destiny.



28 Jan 2022 08:17:10
Sounds like we’ll be signing luis Diaz then!
I for one am very happy with that, I know he hasn’t done amazing in the champions league but he’s been the best player in Portugal this year and he somewhat reminds of mane at Southampton. In that he’s got that pace skill and trickery in his locker to take a man (or 2 on) and deliver a good effort on goal or create a chance. Think he’ll likely need to work on his end product and just round his game off a bit more but I think he’ll be a cracking little signing!



1.) 28 Jan 2022 08:32:09
Totally agree, but his end product has been amazing this season. He's scored way over the expected goals in the chances he's had. Seems to have a knack of finding the corners with his shots. Which is a great trait. He also presses and seems to have that determination and work rate to be a proper Klopp forward 👍.

2.) 28 Jan 2022 09:00:17
Yeah got to say happy we have gone in and hijacked the deal. I wasn’t looking forward to seeing him in a Spurs shirt.

Could this mean Minimino leaves this window to help recoup some of the monies? If so good luck to him, he’s a good player but if we have to sacrifice him to raise money for a first team player then so be it. Would the deal indicate we are confident we will bring in a fee for Phillips this window as well?



25 Dec 2021 12:38:36
Merry Christmas everybody! 🎄

I hope you all have a fantastic day.

Special mention to the Ed’s, I hope you all have the best Christmas possible! Thank you for all the work you do and information you share. Hope you all have a beer and celebrate 🍻



{Ed001's Note - thank you Moreton, Merry Christmas to you and everyone else on the site.}

1.) 25 Dec 2021 13:50:38
I’ll second that moreton red. Thanks to all the eds and merry Christmas to everyone. Have a fantastic Christmas ☃️🎅🏼👍🏻.



20 Dec 2021 11:20:12
Disappointing not to get the 3 points yesterday, while we had a few moments where we showed we’re a level above we simply couldn’t get a hold of the game to cause spurs any real problems.

We massively miss Fabinho and especially in games like this, while I thought Tyler Morton had a good game he just needs that experience (which will come with game time) to read the game better to help break up the oppositions play. The lad has a very bright future.

Onto the officiating of the game, I am in disbelief at how poor a referee he is. How Harry Kane isn’t sent off is beyond me, as Klopp said if Robertson’s leg is on the ground it’s a leg breaker. Harry Kane gets away with so much because he’s the ‘golden boy’ and it’s absolutely disgusting and has to stop.

While I think we should have had a penalty for the challenge on Jota I think it would be harsh to then not give Spurs a penalty for something not to dissimilar. So I suppose the ref kind of got it right. Either way he can never officiate us again, he is simply appalling.

Onto the next one! YNWA.


{Ed001's Note - odd that a referee from Manchester in the VAR booth never spotted the red by Kane isn't it?}

1.) 20 Dec 2021 12:01:08
The quality of the refereeing in England is beyond a joke. Much like the Government of today, they constantly put the protection of their colleagues ahead of what is right for the game.

Whilst I don't think there is a conspiracy, I do think that some players get away with murder whilst others never get a decision.

2.) 20 Dec 2021 12:12:04
Yeah VAR is equally poor, think there needs to be some sort of overhaul. Im not sure what can be done though to improve it?
But it’s getting gradually worse year by year.

3.) 20 Dec 2021 12:25:34
VAR itself isn’t the issue - using technology available should be a good thing. The euros showed that it can be used well. Problem is the referees in this country are as pathetic as they come.

There is no consistency and there’s clear bias to their favourites (ie Kane) .

Frustrated beyond belief. Last week city get one of the most pathetic penalties seen in years. Then this week we have a stonewall denied - the result is a 4 point swing in City’s favour. In a title race between two the best sides in premier league, decisions like this are critical and unfortunately they do not balance themselves out when it’s this close.

If I sound bitter, it’s because I am lol.

4.) 20 Dec 2021 12:40:09
Agreed. Don't blame the technology, blame the users. They are incompetent.

5.) 20 Dec 2021 14:08:23
Every single big decision, including Robbo's sending off, was called wrong by the on-field ref.
I am not one for slagging off refs as my brother is a ref and I see first hand how hard the job is.
However, if Tierney is literally that incompetent that he gets 5 big calls in 1 game incorrect then surely he needs to be moved to games further down the leagues where the stakes aren't as high.

6.) 20 Dec 2021 14:32:27
The real issue regarding referees and the like is all down to politics by that I mean what referee's have played the game at whatever level so they can understand the applications of the laws ask yourself this how many referees at the top level b4 they came professional let's say we're from working class backgrounds in theory if you have a good job then it stands to reason you would be a good referee a load of rubbish go down the parks on a sat you will see plenty of good referees both male and female who will because of things like there working environments won't ever get a chance do you seen ay referees showing tattoos no? now tell me I'm wrong.

7.) 20 Dec 2021 18:58:57
The peno shout was right after we scored one aswell would of been 2 goals in quick suggestion.

8.) 20 Dec 2021 21:38:14
I really don't see what the point is in talking about how refs haven't played the game. it's not going to change the situation. Like, next season are all the refs going to be ex-pros? in 10 years, 20 years? doubt it.

Like most things, I think this boils down to diversity and transparency with those who make decisions. I've heard Dermot say that there are ex-pros who are part of advising, but are they part of decision making? the public should know who is part of these advisory groups and there should be a channel for feedback so that we can see change has reflected what the key stakeholders, the fans, are feeding back. Of course none of this will happen, so we'll be stuck with inconsistency. And when you think about, was it really that bad pre-VAR? I mean at least when there was a mistake, it was a genuine mistake. Now we have a mistake compounded by mistakes via a system that is there to clean up the mistakes haahahahahahahahaha

Agreed IB.
Would like to see Bowen added, adeyimi added and potentially a ready made player (only if both mane and Bobby were moved on) .
We definitely need another good forward option regardless if they both stay.

I’m not so sure Haaland is what we need. As much as he is very very good and would score lots of goals in the premier league I’m not entirely sure his style or play fits our system (of course a system change could occur) .

I’d rather we signed Raphina and then add another young forward to the side.

Of course the effects of CV will massively effect our transfer dealings as the Ed’s have mentioned multiple times. I still think we’ll see 2/ 3 new signings in summer with 4/ 5 outgoings.

I think we definitely need to bring in a midfielder it’s all well and good saying let’s give games to Harvey, Curtis and carvalho, and I agree they should be getting game time especially over the likes of Milner and ox (just my opinion) but bar keita the midfield three have no competition what do ever. The midfield should have 5 top player vying for the 3 positions with the 3 youngsters to rotate.

Would love one of Barella, Tonali, Bellingham to join but it’s very very unlikely.

While Jota does need to improve his link up play the fact he’s scored the amount of goals he has is testament to his goal scoring ability! He was a key figure while mane and Salah were at afcon and he certainly deserves his chance to play regularly next season. Whatever happens whether he’s a regular starter or a rotational player he’s a very good player and one we’re very lucky to have!

Think the likelihood will be players like Bowen, traore, sarr, Doku will be the options for a winger.
Jonathan David, adeyimi, will be the options for a striker.
Kessie, Bissouma, gravenberch, Bellingham, perhaps kalvin Phillips will be the option for a CM.

I think we need 2 CM’s and 2 forwards.
My picks would be: Bowen and David (would love latauro Martinez) for the forward positions. Bissouma (if this whole police incident is sorted from a few months ago) and Kessie.

Dele absolutely no chance I want him anywhere near our club.
Not seen enough of nketia but there seems to be a lot of high praise in the game for him, could be worth a punt?
