Morning Ed,

With the rumours that we're interested in Asensio I'm just wondering if this would be instead of a DM target, or in addition to?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking to replace Fabinho.}

1.) 22 Jun 2022 09:50:39
Sorry Ed2, I meant instead of the MF's we've been linked with (Phillips et al) or in addition to?

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to it Nick.}

2.) 22 Jun 2022 15:10:22
Ok, thank you for taking the time to reply ed.

3.) 22 Jun 2022 20:32:20
we need another defensive mid, city have two players minimum for every positions we have one defensive mid in the whole squad we are in desperate need for another. especially one who can play centre mid as well.



02 Jun 2022 13:28:25
Ed2, apologies if this has been answered before (I can't see it anywhere) . Do you know if we really are interested in Martin Terrier?

Also, is he an out and out striker?

Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Martin Terrier (LW/F) one of three attacking arrivals last summer and he has settled far better than Serhou Guirassy and Jeremy Doku. Has been watched by Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs. Spurs will look to an offer this summer.}

1.) 02 Jun 2022 14:25:19
We already have a " Scotch Terrier"?

2.) 02 Jun 2022 22:02:35
Stan CollieMore the second.

3.) 03 Jun 2022 08:07:35
He has the nose for a great through ball, so i've heard. Potentially the gerMans best friend.

4.) 03 Jun 2022 10:21:45
Our scouting team have a knack of finding these "ruff diamonds'.

5.) 03 Jun 2022 14:51:56
A move to kennel worth road is more likely.

6.) 03 Jun 2022 16:08:51
I would expect him to go after the Foxes if he's looking for a move to the PL.



01 Jun 2022 08:12:17
Morning Eds,

I know Salah has indicated that he intends to stay this season but do you see there being any chance of us selling him rather than let him walk for free?

Hope you're well?


{Ed002's Note - No, I suspect the club will use the time to push for him to sign a new contract.}

1.) 01 Jun 2022 12:04:22
I’m beginning to think he has no interest in signing an extension and he would have done so ages ago if he really intended doing so. His agent is now briefing loads in the press about the offers he’s been made and saying he’s happy to join another premier league team, I think we’re at the point where we have to sell as he’s going on a Bosman otherwise. As hard a decision it is to make, the right decision is to sell, get as much as we can and move forward for the future.

Selling Salah and Mane to big and bring in Nunez and Bowen seems the only logical thing to do, as we’d have one of the most exciting attacking talents in Europe as well as a one of the best wingers in premier league who has been getting better season on season, no point messing around with short term options like Kane or Lewandowski as we’re back to square one in two years time with both of them, and there’s absolutely no point gambling on the likes on Danjuma/ Gakpo/ Dembele et al as they have fail written all over them.

2.) 01 Jun 2022 16:10:44
There's no way we can afford Nunez and Bowen without significant sales but there's limited interest in our players for big sales. I vote Lewandowski and a cheaper option like Dembele or Terrier.



30 May 2022 09:37:04
Morning Eds,

Do you know if Liverpool still hold interest in Dybala?



{Ed002's Note - I believe it has gone as talks are progressing with two other sides.}



28 Jan 2022 13:05:27
Afternoon eds and reds.
Ed2, you have said that we need to sell players to make signings so if we were to sign Diaz would it mean that we'd be looking to sell the likes of Phillips, Origi and Minamino in this window?



{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will sell players that are no longer required if valuations are met.}

I can't help but think we're making a mistake by not signing anyone else this transfer window. Last Year's mistake was not replacing Lovren (which came back to bite us on the arse big time) and I think we're doing the same this year with not signing another forward.
We needed a goal against Chelsea and we left Minamino on the bench and Origi wasn't even in the squad so Klopp obviously doesn't trust either of them. We're 2 injuries away from having no viable first team options and it can happen as last Year showed.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 21:28:51
I don´t think it's the same thing this year. Last year we started the season with 3 center back. This year we are going to the season with 5 (vandijk, gomez, matip, konate, philips) and we have enough on the middlefield and forwards position too. We have 7 middlfielders (henderson, fabinho, keita, ox, milner, jones, thiago) and 6 fowards (salah, mane, firmino, minamino, elliot, origi) . Even though I want to sign a new forward I know we can't without selling because we can't keep adding players.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 21:45:45
Correct VakPa.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 21:55:25
OP, the circumstances are nowhere near being the same as they were last season, IMO. We have 5 CB’s, a backup/ another starting LB, Elliott has joined the midfield and Taki is going to be kept. That’s a lot more options than we had last season.

On Sat, We had Mino and Ox on the bench so if Klopp didn’t play them then you have to direct your ire to him, IMO.

If he didn’t want to bring Taki or Ox on then I would question Klopp on this so let’s not try to draw inaccurate conclusions based on diff scenarios and circumstances.



18 Jul 2021 19:38:53
Question for Ed1 if about: you said that you don't see us getting Saul or Bissouma. Who do you think we'll end up with?

Thanks in advance and hope you're well.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, that's why I didn't put any names in there.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 07:49:24
I still think we get Saul. Imo, we are just waiting to sell one or two foreign quota players (Shaq, Grujic) before we commit funds to another non-HG player.



10 Jul 2021 22:28:09
Ed1, hope you're well mate?

I was just wondering you're opinion on how many players you think we may sign this summer?

I'd guess that assuming no star players leave and given that we signed Konate already we're after one midfielder and one versatile attacker? Do you agree?

Also, if we were to sell Keita would you think we'd need to replace him too?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot guess at the numbers but the club need a versatile forward, a midfield players in addition to Konate. I am not so sure that replacing Keita is on the cards - if he leaves then Jones will get more opportunities.}

1.) 10 Jul 2021 22:58:05
In my mind Jones has already replaced Keita, used in largely the same way only Jones actually works hard and isn’t made of biscuits.

2.) 10 Jul 2021 23:28:59
Keita isn't made from biscuits, that's an insult to biscuits. Keita is made from very mature cheddar cheese which crumbles when touched.

{Ed0666's Note - surely you mean feta?

3.) 11 Jul 2021 01:31:13
Doesn’t feta smell sour? Cheddar smells lovely, just as some of Keita’s contributions have been lovely, but unfortunately in very small doses.

Keita is a very, very (potentially verging on dry) mature cheddar.

Cheese believe me when I say that it has brien real, but Keita has to go.

(Cheese pun alert for anyone who has drunk less than me tonight! )

4.) 11 Jul 2021 08:24:33
Betcha Klopp keeps him.

5.) 11 Jul 2021 12:49:27
FSG will pull a Chelsea on Keita and see his contract out as much as possible.
With players that haven’t done it, Chelsea either loan them out or suck it up and move them on close to contract end when it’s possible to either make a book profit or minimise the book losses.
The player’s book value is accounted for each season regardless of his form.
If Keita is sold, at all, it’ll be Summer of 2022 or Jan 2023 - his contract expires in Summer 2023 I think.

6.) 11 Jul 2021 15:07:46
Zeddicious I agree about Keita being made of cheese. His legs seem very stringy, maybe instead of having people on toast he should spread it more, I'd like to think there's Stiltons interested in him but doubt it.

7.) 11 Jul 2021 15:24:27
Keita is getting kept cos we can’t move him or Klopp still thinks he will come good or both. We shall see.

{Ed002's Note - He is a difficult player to sell as many countries would not give him a Work Permit.}

8.) 11 Jul 2021 19:45:59
My sentiments exactly, Ed.



06 Jul 2021 11:54:29

I have emptied my pockets and can offer the following for information on the surprise:

£1.80 change
An IKEA receipt
A card for a technician who specialises in restringing and setting up guitars
1 trolley/ locker token.


1.) 06 Jul 2021 12:03:25
Weirdly enough that's equivalent to our transfer budget this summer before sales!

2.) 06 Jul 2021 12:07:29
If we all pool in an extra £1.20 we could buy one new signing.
a Tesco meal deal.

3.) 06 Jul 2021 12:07:31
I have shorts on, I have no pockets, sorry Ed 😓.



09 May 2021 12:41:46
Morning Ed2,

Do you see think we could keep Grujic next season? The lack of money around and the fact he has had two seasons on loan mean he would be a cheaper option than spending £20-£40m on a new midfielder. Also, do you know what the club plans to do with Oxlade-Chamberlain?
I hope you are well?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - With a commitment to him then yes, he should be used. He is certainly not a dud as a player but he needs a decision that he will get a chance or he needs to resule his career elsewhere.}

1.) 09 May 2021 14:13:29
We win with fabinho playing DM so I think we need cover there as our results are shocking this season when he's out of center half so Grujic here this season would of made us stronger.

2.) 09 May 2021 14:49:38
There’s no doubting Fab is a fantastic player for us. Last season he missed 10 league games. And we won them all.

3.) 09 May 2021 16:18:36
Yes Hendo played as a number 6 and was even better than Fab.

4.) 09 May 2021 19:38:03
I would still prefer Fab at DM and Hendo in the 8 regardless.

Who is Trindade and who does he play for? I seem to remember Ed2 suggesting he may fail to get a WP which means we'd probably have to play well over the odds?

Ed2, thank you for the list of midfield targets given yesterday. Of that list do you know which one is Liverpool's preferred option?



{Ed002's Note - I don't - and much will depend on departures.}

I was shocked to hear that Milner has played more games for us (289 I think) than any of his previous clubs.

Ed2, just wondering what options clubs have in situations where they need to get a players wages off the books but can't. For example, what could Atletico do if they couldn't sell Saul at all? Would they have to keep him and just take the hit?


{Ed002's Note - Typically if it were critical they would sell another (Atletico have four players who there would be serious interest in if available) or would sell fringe players and work their way through it.}

Would love Saul. Ed1, do you think to afford Saul we'd need to sell a major player?

Also, how good do you think Elliot could be this Year and do you have any comparable players for his style?



{Ed001's Note - probably, or lots of fringe ones.

Comparable players? Not really, I am sure there must be someone but I can't think of any off the top of my head.}

Thanks for answering Ed. Seems a risky strategy.
