Hi Ed002, please can I bother you for a minute? I'm just wondering if Liverpool are still interested in Bowen. I know you've written about him in the past but given his current form, I was wondering if there's anything new as far as Klopp's interest in the player. Also, do you think West Ham will do business if the player was interested in the move? Any info will be appreciated. I just think given stronger players and coaching, that guy can score 20 goals a season.
Thanks, 002.


{Ed002's Note - Jarrod Bowen (RW/LW) I am still not aware of any formal approach to West Ham by Liverpool, but Bowen is a player who would be an ideal replacement for the now departed Shaqiri and perhaps to depart Oxlade-Chamberlain or Minamino - and he is HG. Liverpool have a good relationship with his agent and have apparently spoken with him. I don't know if West Ham would be open to selling. Their focus is on other positions. So it makes some sense if West Ham are open to a sale and if the player accepts a bit-part role. Previously Leicester had an approach turned down by West Ham. Spurs want to add competition to Moura but I think Bowen would want to be a starter so any club signing him would need to convince him of their project. I would not totally rule it out.}

I don’t see it unless one of Firmino, Diaz, Salah, Mane or Jota leave. I think we could convince him to come in and be a part of a ‘front 5’ but doubt he would (or should) accept an Origi style role.

2.) 09 May 2022 18:01:01
Unless we see him playing behind Salah on the right side of the midfield, which is a total change in position for him, then I'm unsure how it could fit unless someone significant moves on.

3.) 09 May 2022 17:27:49
Thank you for your reply, Ed002! Hopefully Salah is sorted out sooner than later. I don't mind Bowen at all. Who's is agent, if I may? I don't have any football contacts or anything, but just watching him, Bowen strikes me like a hardworker, and I've just become sick of Salah's singing to the media rather than focusing on his football! Everything you said makes sense in terms of his homegrown status and potential space (s) in the team. Not sure he'll command a huge salary at first either, so what's not to like? Salah wasn't the Egyptian King until he came to Liverpool; who says we couldn't find the next one?

{Ed002's Note - He shares an agent with Roberton and Alexander Arnold.}

4.) 10 May 2022 10:23:06
10 goals and 10 assists strikes me as a player on the up. Maybe the answer is to sell both Mane and Salah then bring in Bowen and Nunez.



28 May 2021 08:23:32
Ed002, your last reference to Hakan Calhanoglu and Liverpool was in December 2016 and you stated at that time that there was no interest in the player. I just read he's on the free this summer and Liverpool might be interested as a replacement for Gini. They don't seem like similar players in my opinion. He might also have some personality issues from what I read somewhere.
Is there any chance Liverpool is interested? Any insight is appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - Hakan Calhanoglu (AM/LW) Player wants a new contract - Milan will oblige if agreement can be reached over his wages - and it may depend on what happens with loanee Bahim Diaz. Atletico and Juventus have asked his German-based agent if a move is possible for them. The agent remains keen on the idea to try the player out in England or in Germany again but may have to accept staying in Milan - but Juventus may persist. Certainly approaches have been made to Manchester United and Chelsea. I am not aware of an approach by Liverpool but he would cost the club far less than the preferred options.

1.) 28 May 2021 09:52:42
Thank you, Boss! I appreciate the info!
Have a nice day.

2.) 28 May 2021 10:07:37
Seems like a potentially cost effective way of replacing shaq if he leaves. If the club moves on Origi too still leaves space for Elliot.

{Ed002's Note - He plays in a different position.}

3.) 28 May 2021 15:19:18
I was thinking more of in the squad with Elliot could fill the Shaq role (RW / cover for Salah) and Calhanoglu cover AM / Manes LW side. To be honest though with how little Shaq has played this season I am not totally sure of his position :D.

4.) 28 May 2021 20:54:23
Hi Ed. have you heard Teun Koopmeiners? Is there any possibilities that LFC is interested? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Teun Koopmeiners (DM) AZ are reluctant to sell but if they could raise €20M it would help the club. Leeds, Sevilla and Napoli have a declared interest but Roma are already in talks with AZ. I am not aware of any approach from LIverpool - he would be a Fabinho replacement not a Wijnaldum replacement.}



26 May 2021 15:09:46
Hi Ed002, I know you addressed the Youri Tielemans rumor on May 20, but it's all over the news today, and I wondered if anything changed since you last addressed the rumor, specifically, if Liverpool are now interested in him as widely rumored today.



{Ed002's Note - I don't know what has been said but the media typically repeat a single suggestion - I am not aware of any approach to either his club or agent. He would be a great deal more expensive than the players that the club have shown an interest in.}

1.) 26 May 2021 15:37:03
I would much prefer Bissouma even with the AFCON issue. Anguissa is another and would probably be more affordable given Fulham's relegation.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have no interest in Anguissa.

2.) 26 May 2021 15:49:13
Shame cheers Ed2.

3.) 26 May 2021 15:59:38
Thanks, Ed. Also, thank you for all the honest feedback, news and views you've shared through the season.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

4.) 26 May 2021 17:31:29
Surely Leicester would charge an absolute premium for his services?

5.) 26 May 2021 19:19:01
I’d love tielemans to be fair, he would be a huge upgrade on wiji. Not sure what sort of fee Leicester would be looking to charge, but I can’t imagine it being cheap. He’s better than all the other players we are reportedly looking at in midfield in my opinion.

6.) 27 May 2021 11:54:40
Is the other player we have shown an interest in Bissouma?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has an interest in him.}

7.) 27 May 2021 14:57:35
Thanks Ed - I would be over the moon if we managed to sign him. If we managed to get Konate, Bissouma and a forward like Daka or Malen I would be very happy. All 3 signed with a view to being starters at some point but we can bed them in and barring injuries we wouldn’t be reliant on them.



19 Nov 2019 20:36:42
Hi Eds, pardon me if you've already discussed this before. Is Liverpool really interested in Amine Harit from Schalke? If so, who do you think he'll replace?



{Ed002's Note - Amine Harit is having a decent season but I am not aware of interest of Liverpool. He would be effectively a like-for-like replacement for Shakiri and he would likely get around the same amount of opportunities. He will be 21 or so now and I would expect a drop to the bench would not be attractive for a player who is playing regularly at a good level. He has turned down clubs in the past as it would stagnate. It makes no sense for the player or the club.}

1.) 20 Nov 2019 02:26:10
Thanks for your response! I appreciate it.

2.) 19 Nov 2019 22:30:24
Ed002 you’ve cited midfield / AM as possible positions that Liverpool may strengthen in summer.
What level of player do you envisage if such a move seems unattractive for this lad?
Someone who’ll go straight in the team or what, as midfield is the one area that Klopp regularly rotates and game time may be more readily available than elsewhere in the team?

{Ed002's Note - If they are to go straight in to the team then first team players will need to leave - so it would not be a simple case of Coutinho replacing Shakiri as Shakiri is a bit part player - the same if replacing Lallana. The club should be looking to see if they can get a work permit for Grujic before looking at the market.}

3.) 20 Nov 2019 12:20:48
On the midfield subject Ed do you think there is a chance Shaqiri might leave in Jan or the Summer in search of more opportunities?

{Ed002's Note - I would think he will go in the Summer.}

4.) 20 Nov 2019 17:11:25
Owe ok mate, I was thinking he might be getting annoyed at lack of playing time. You mentioned Zielinski previously, do you think he is attainable or far fetched for the summer mate please? Guess he wants to be guaranteed starter every week.

{Ed002's Note - As a wildcard I would not lose sight of PZ. Klopp likes him and got Liverpool a warning for tapping him up previously.}

5.) 20 Nov 2019 18:03:51
Ok Ed cheers mate, I get what your saying. Looks a decent player to me, not sure he is a big improvement to what we have but would be a welcome addition imo.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp thought so - but when it all came out (only about a year ago) everyone was in denial because of a new contract at Napoli. Now Napoli are in a very difficult position there might well be an opportunity.}

6.) 20 Nov 2019 22:50:51
Appreciate the info as always Ed. Let’s see what develops.

7.) 21 Nov 2019 12:53:30
Eds, how would Zielinski fit into this midfield though? Keita, Lallana, and Milner have all seen part-time duties from injuries or just lack of opportunity. I get it with Lallana and Milner considering the stage of their careers, but Keita obviously wasn't brought in to sit on the fringes. Do you think he would have to move on in order to make room for Zielinski or do you see a setup where we'd add him without subtracting Keita?

{Ed002's Note - He would have been a significantly better option than Nobby Keita. I don't suppose there would be many tears if he were moved on. But you are right, if players are to come in then others have to go. Against him is also that if Grujic returns and gets a Work Permit how he will fit in to an already crowded midfield where there are three starting places available. Lallana is more attacking that PZ. If money is spent on replacing Shakiri and bringing in a starting player in an attacking role (e.g. the Coutinho type), then that means that there will be only two spots available in midfield - something like 4-2-3-1 or 4-2-1-3.}

8.) 22 Nov 2019 08:55:27
Have to agree with Ed002 about the midfield congestion. Even if Milner and Lallana go, we still have 6 senior midfielders (provided Grujic gets a WP) . How do u expect the club to convince another midfielder to join unless assurances r made that people like Grujic, Keita or even Hendo are moved on?
I'd rather sign a versatile forward to replace Shaq and only sign a midfielder if Grujic or Keita move on.



25 Jun 2019 10:07:14
Sepp van den Berg is the name lots of websites are reporting about at the moment. Eds, any truths in these reports?


{Ed002's Note - I suspect there is. My notes are out of date but say: Sepp van den Berg (CB) Zwolle kiddie but being watched by a number of sides including PSV, Brighton, Ajax, Lille and Genk - Sampdoria have had a couple of offers rejected - Crystal Palace, Bayern Munich and Liverpool have enquired.}

1.) 25 Jun 2019 10:56:29
Liverpool 'win £1.79m race to sign Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg ahead of Bayern Munich with 17-year-old to have medical on Wednesday.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 13:01:35
Ed01 can you make a player profile on him?

{Ed001's Note - if I can find footage of him to watch I will yes mate. Added him to the list.}

3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:56:37
ed1 please don't lol I feel like a review on a kid is like fuel to the fire for fans. . .

4.) 26 Jun 2019 17:53:30
Lots of pace as he used to be a winger before converting to a centre half. That will probably mean that he'll be able to play as an attacking full back too.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone convert directly from a winger to a centre half.

Sure, winger to full back; centre half to defensive mid; even full back to centre mid (ala Fabinho and Philip Lahm) ; but winger to centre half? never.

5.) 27 Jun 2019 06:18:11
EP, Van Dijk started off as a striker, and I could be completely wrong but didn’t Carragher start out upfront too?

6.) 27 Jun 2019 09:52:57
OGRed_Phil. I forgot the centre-half/ forward combo. There's quite a few examples. Chris Sutton was a classic example and regularly played both roles, and dare I mention him? Steven Caulker, haha.

Strikers and Centre Halves share a lot of the same attributes. I don't know if he ever played in defence but I'd imagine that Duncan Ferguson would have made a decent centre half.

Hi Eds and Reds, this is not a rumor post or anything. Has anyone heard from Liverpoolmanc? Just checking in. If you're on here, my friend, just want you to know YNWA. Please keep us posted.

Fair play to Square Tomato; he called the Joe Gomez deal weeks ago, and I was beginning to doubt!
Thanks for being a solid link for all things Joe Gomez, and thanks for sharing rather than keeping the knowledge to yourself!


{Ed0666's Note - I was thinking the same thing earlier today when the notification about Joe signing came on my phone.

1.) 08 Jul 2022 07:40:24
Thing with ST is he doesn’t call things he just tells us what is happening lol.

2.) 08 Jul 2022 08:14:00
Haha I’ll wait till a couple days before next time so it’s more believable.

3.) 08 Jul 2022 09:17:33
Just shows it takes time for it to filter to us mortals! Cheers ST for breaking it a few weeks ahead of time.

Its funny after seeing your original post, then seeing headlines of 'will he won't he sign' and it reinforces the fact that most journalists know the square root of naff all.

Ed001 and ed033 the site you created is unrivaled and I think most of us have an addiction to it!

4.) 08 Jul 2022 09:25:45
we all appreciate it ST.

5.) 08 Jul 2022 12:04:17
Hope Square Tomato passes onto Joe how highly the vast majority of us here rate him.

6.) 08 Jul 2022 18:10:57
Square Tomato is completely legit when it comes to all things Joe Gomez. No question.

Quick one ST because I forget, was he your cousin?



03 Jul 2022 11:07:53
Fabio finally unveiled! Our new No. 28!


1.) 04 Jul 2022 00:02:19
The idea of a player being unveiled always makes me laugh….

‘Ladies and gentlemen of the press, we’ve brought you here to spring a surprise …. some of you may have noticed what looks like a young man covered in a sheet sitting in the corner ……’.



19 Jun 2022 05:08:57
It's really a disgrace that we keep talking about abuse every window. Okay, we can disagree from time to time, but why abuse the Eds? Can't people just banter without abuse? This is just completely unnecessary and unacceptable! Funny as many of us are quite sensitive when people say nasty things about our Club or Scousers, or our fan base. How can we then turn around and abuse the Eds who painstakingly provide free info and keep us informed day in day out about what's going?
Really baffling. This needs to stop NOW! Thanks for all you do Eds!


1.) 19 Jun 2022 07:27:40
Well said Noski.

2.) 19 Jun 2022 09:08:53
What Noski said.

3.) 19 Jun 2022 09:30:30
Wise words Noski, sadly there is a minority of lowlife morons who use social media, as they can hide behind a keyboard. If they do not get the reply they want from the Ed's, they become abusive. Of course, they would not behave like this in person as they would get chinned regularly.
We don't see the abusive posts as they are deleted, but no doubt Ed02 gets the worst of it as he provides the transfer info.
It is difficult to stop completely, as these idiots use different accounts/ usernames.
It is the decent posters who will lose out, due to a minority of scumbags, as is often the way in life.
Finally, thanks to all the Eds for a great site, which I have read daily since 2011, although I post.

4.) 19 Jun 2022 09:38:53
It's human nature unfortunately. Dicks are always going to be dicks and do dickish things, and a club this size will have its fair share "following" it.

5.) 19 Jun 2022 09:43:45
It doesn't matter how much we want to discuss it, it's always going to happen, it's wrong but that's the internet in general nowadays. It's poison for abuse. Keyboard warriors going on and on without thinking about it. Sad part about it on here is the litte rats ruin it for the rest of us who value the information given.

Well said Noski. Thank you to all the Eds, it never goes unapreciated by the vast majority.

6.) 19 Jun 2022 10:18:55
Without internet you can’t get into this site Salah. Internet is no poison. People are and that remains with and without internet.

7.) 19 Jun 2022 11:14:09
Good lord. I just agreed with Harry.

8.) 19 Jun 2022 11:36:05
It's just wrong, some people are just keyboard warriors acting tough and aggressive and abusive online but wouldn't dare say boo to you in person. I'm sure we don't see half the abuse the Eds get

We've got the odd nasty troll on the live chat trying to start something and pick a fight but they've then been kicked out by Ed 25 or Ed 7 usually - to think the Eds get that crap daily is unthinkable. Just why? You ask a question, one of the Eds is good enough to answer, hardly their fault if you don't like that answer! Not a job I could do, I'd take too much pleasure winding these little f****** up tbh, thank you to the Eds that post in spite of these nasty ones though.



08 Jun 2022 20:15:29
Ed001 or Seano or any other Red/ Ed who knows their stuff on the subject matter: how would you compare Nunez vs. Haaland? Would you say Nunez might be Liverpool's answer to Haaland? They're close in age more or less, and are both tall strikers. Seems like the return of big strikers (Harry Kane too) . Anyway, I digressed, but I wondered if you could compare Haaland vs. Nunez in terms of style of play and approach and that kind of stuff.
Also, how would you compare Nunez and vintage Fernando Torres? Just trying to gauge what kind of a striker he is, beyond the two games against us last season.
Any reply is appreciated.


1.) 08 Jun 2022 22:37:58
He is a bigger Torres with worse ball control, first touch and technique. But is still young and could become better in those aspects. He has great work rate, decent pace, decent finishing and good off the ball movement, good heading and has a good shot on him. His passing also needs work. Haaland is currently better because he has a very good first touch and technique but Darwin works much harder so i would say both players fit the teams they are joining.

If i had any say though i wouldn't sign Darwin Nunez. Laurito Martinez, Nkunku, Anthony from Ajax would be before him on my list. Specially considering the price. But am Not Klopp so i won't pretend to know better than him.

I feel we're privileged to get some of this inside scoop from Ed002, and honestly, the knowledge from the Ed that Salah has been on sale for 2 or 3 years now has really helped me to "move on" mentally from this current situation and just take everything I can get from Salah until such a time when he's no longer a Liverpool player.

Thanks for all the updates over the years, 002. I just wished Salah and his crew would show some decency and respect to the club and fans no matter how much they think they deserve this pay day!



{Ed002's Note - The problem might be around missed opportunities for the player. For the club, the paradigm is replacement and moving forward against significant cost and a player getting older.}

Kopforever, you don't think we've exceeded expectations this season? Did you expect this run? Did you expect at the beginning of the season that we'll be in any conversation for a quadruple in May? If your answer is yes, then I'm sorry. Clearly, 99.9% didn't expect this run. Mind you, no one has gone this far in a season still in the run for all titles, so yes, we've exceeded expectations. Doesn't mean anything if we don't finish up well, but no doubt we've been on a crazy run!

We need on focus on ourselves and not others. You can say Pep's petty or having a dig or whatever, but the facts are clear that we've only won one title in 32 years, so he's right there. No known pundit tipped us to win the league this season if I recall; only a couple thought we could manage a second position. Most thought our best was 4th. I'm proud we made the league run exciting, so if this is the best we get from it, we'll accept it and try again next season.
We're clearly a pain for Pep, so you can understand where he's coming from. If we manage to beat Real on May 28, that would mean another Champions league trophy in 3 years; everyone knows much Pep craves that particular silverware. He's not stupid; he's trying to make sure the attention is on his spectacular success in the league rather than our "lucky" adventures! [He's called winning the Champions league lucky in the past]
Let's just stay hungry and humble. Salah needs to stop talking too much and focus on getting this season wrapped up. Everyone knows we've more than exceeded expectations this season, so let's keep going!

I was dreading Saturday's game, but after a piece of news like this, I imagine the boys will all be buzzing and that might just give us some extra juice against the surging Georgies! And who knows, maybe the weekend might further transform into dreamland should things go magical at Elland Road. Either way, I'm so glad, that Jurgen is a Red.

ED0666, do you think Sunday will be a walk in the park for the Reds? Everton is just 1 point away from being in the relegation zone. Don't you think that will have a bearing on Sunday?


{Ed0666's Note - They will lose resoundingly. They will defend and play on the counter because of their current predicament. If they come to play we’ll pick them off and if they defend we’ll open them up. I can’t see us scoring less than 3 to be honest. They’ll get someone sent off for them I have no doubts.
