Hi Eds.
I've heard rumours that Pupco deal to Barcelona is done but won't. be announced until Friday when the Spanish window closes. The rumoured reasons are to try and prevent clubs hiking prices on the back of Pipco fee.
Have you heard same and do you think it' has any truth?
Ta Ed - great work.

The Goatherder

{Ed002's Note - That is a perfectly reasonable thing to have heard and I know a nmber of people who are awfully well placed and share that view.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 18:06:30
Thanks Ed, great work.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 18:19:15
A very shrewd move from all involved. Good luck to him. It he will have his hands full in a poor Barcelona side (compared to 3 years ago) .

I personally think we are doing great in the market this year. Just need a defender.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 18:20:59
Makes sense. FSG saying he'll still be here when the window closes, which he will. Then the Spanish one closes a day later. That's when he'll move.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 18:16:22
That does make sense. The main thing is that we actually get a replacement for Pipco.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 18:18:31
Ed002, jus told to clarify. So can we still sell a player after England's Thursday deadline of Spanish one closes a day later? Or is it that it would already be done by Thursday but wouldn't be announced til Friday?

{Ed002's Note - Players can be sold at any time, it is the registration of new players that the transfer window relates to. So on FRiday Liverpool could still sell Coutinho to Barcelona (if he hasn't already moved).}

6.) 30 Aug 2017 18:19:01
Would that make Thomas Lemar more likely than not? Surely not Coutiniho out and Ox in to replace, that's a big risk if so.

{Ed002's Note - I am not with you. It is unrelated to Lemar.}

7.) 30 Aug 2017 18:22:44
Exactly why we are spending so much on Lemar, vvd, keita and ox. Where in the neck did you think that mone6 had come from.

But technically we have swapped cou for ox and keita so far. Add vvd and Lemar and that's the best window we have ever had for me. And the best in the prem.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 18:30:55
Ed I understand you saying it's unrelated to Lemar, but if we see Lemar as a direct replacement for Coutinho surely they are related in some capacity? Correct me if I'm wrong just tryna see sense in all of this!

{Ed002's Note - You might want to get out of this "direct" replacement mind set. Interest in Lemar has been very recent and reasonably kneejerk particularly given the interested sides did not see value in the price that was being asked.}

9.) 30 Aug 2017 19:19:31
Thing is if we could figure this out then club officials from Europe's elite will figure this out too. And Monaco will for sure haggle hard and Liverpool will pay a club record fee for Lemar. Southampton will get top dollar for VVD too if that materialises.

The late Barcelona interest in Lemar is probably fake too. It's a lot of money for the 21 year old. Arsenal and other clubs didn't want to pay close to that amount. But he could be a real good addition if he settles well. Although can all these forwards fit in the team? Salah, Solanke, Lemar, Mane, Firminio, Lallana, Sturridge.

Good to have options I guess, but will this mean Lemar playing behind Firminio?

10.) 30 Aug 2017 19:52:24
Salah, Solanke, Lemar, Mane, Firminio, Lallana, Sturridge, AOC, Winaldum, Henderson, Can, Grujic and Milner into SIX spots. Of course it's a squad game, but there will be some unhappy players.

11.) 30 Aug 2017 22:06:16
If we're ambitious that is 38 league games plus another 20 or so cup games across all competitions, maybe more. It is easier to keep players happier across 60 games.

12.) 30 Aug 2017 22:01:51
Or hungry to impress ones.



24 Sep 2015 08:07:00
According to Graham Beecroft, TalkSh.te's Merseyside football correspondent, Rogers is gone. He understands the decision was made before the game last night and the only thing that will stop it happening now is if their No. 1 target (he thinks Ancelotti) says no.
Don't shoot the messenger. .

28 Jun 2015 14:16:52
Are there any clubs showing interest in taking a punt on Balo Ed?

The Goatherder

{Ed001's Note - none that I know of.}

1.) 28 Jun 2015 17:58:12
Cheers Ed.
Does that mean we'll be stuck with him or pay him off/release him or however it works?

{Ed002's Note - No it doesn't mean that.}

2.) 28 Jun 2015 23:04:12
I heard of interest frob Trabzonspor

3.) 28 Jun 2015 23:20:43
Reading some fairly shady reports of Besiktas or Trabzonspor interest, think there's any truth eds?

{Ed002's Note - There has been some interest but I doubt it is the preferred solution right now.}



20 Jan 2015 13:03:56
Is there any news on who's leading the chase for Martin Odegaard signature yet Ed?

The Goatherder

{Ed002's Note - There is no "chase" - as explained he will end up at Real Madrid - just possibly via Ajax - there have been some discussions.}



31 Dec 2014 09:27:09
Any truth in the Luciano Vietto rumours Ed?
Have a great New Year's Eve and all the best for 2015. .

The Goatherder

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool enquired after Vietto in the Summer of 2013. Given he has only been at Villareal for four months a move in January is probably not going to happen.}

1.) 31 Dec 2014 12:15:26
He looks a prospect but with Sturridge, lambert, borini, baloteli and origi to come in we would have to move on a couple of strikers in order to sign another. I can't see any outfield players being signed in January to be fair.

That's Harvey Elliott in the bag 👍.

The Goatherder

1.) 28 Jul 2019 09:25:10
What shirt number was he givern.

2.) 28 Jul 2019 09:45:25
Shirt number? He will be playing with the U-23's.

3.) 28 Jul 2019 09:42:03
Any idea if he's considered ready for first team appearances or one for the future? Hadn't heard much about him until we were linked with him.

{Ed025's Note - one for the future mate..

4.) 28 Jul 2019 10:00:42
His shirt said 67 I believe. Buying the shirt already?

5.) 28 Jul 2019 10:30:29
In the squad for today's game apparently.

6.) 28 Jul 2019 11:03:04
Lets hope he has a good future with the club!

7.) 28 Jul 2019 11:05:54
Cheers Ed, how are you? Don't know about you but I'm itching for the season to start, bored of this transfer lark.

{Ed025's Note - im good thanks RTID and like you itching for the season to start, bring on jeff stelling and the team and the footy coupons in the bookies i say mate..



13 Aug 2018 06:42:52
Morning Ed
Have you any info on the Annie Road development and timescales? I'm assuming the plans were accepted.

The Goatherder

{Ed001's Note - no mate sorry.}

1.) 13 Aug 2018 08:45:59
The last I checked, and did again just now, outline planning permission lasts until Summer 2019.
Following that, the club are looking at revamped plans to include hospitality in the AR stand expansion.
But, at present, the focus is more on the Kirkby complex which is due for completion in 2020 although there may be some overlap between the two schemes starting and finishing.



22 Jul 2018 07:52:54
Good Morning Ed
Just read snippets from Jurgen's presser last night in which it suggests our business is done for this window.
I know people have asked the question and I have searched the site for answers, particularly Ed002's answers and can't find the answers so apologies up front for asking again.
Do you believe or expect there will be anymore players coming, in this window please?
Thanks Ed - keep up the great work.

The Goatherder

{Ed002's Note - Yes - as I keep saying.}

1.) 22 Jul 2018 08:54:39
If Lyon were to come back with a deal to suit us regarding Fekir. Do you believe Klopp would consider it? . I sense this could be a slight tact of mind games from Klopp. He feels he as enough but if it's on Liverpool's terms then perhaps a deal can be struck.

{Ed001's Note - are we really going to have to spend all our time answering questions about Fekir?}

2.) 22 Jul 2018 09:00:21
. LOADING. Zeds reply incoming.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 08:52:42
Ed002, have you ever watched that film ‘Groundhog Day’? 😄.

4.) 22 Jul 2018 09:25:00
Some of us don't spend all our time reading the site. I apologise for having a life and will just come to my own conclusion.

{Ed001's Note - you could just read through what is already here and not be a prick and waste everyone else's time having to read repeated questions. Do you not realise what a selfish arse you are wasting my time with questions that have been answered a hundred times before because you are too damn lazy to read the site?}

5.) 22 Jul 2018 09:39:07
Just one thing about Fekir Ed001 😂.

6.) 22 Jul 2018 09:41:22
I'm thinking a slight over reaction here and to call me a prick and an arse. Just asked a question and you act like a child. Any more or are you done?

{Ed001's Note - your reply was childish and pathetic and got a similar reply. No one asked you to waste our time and yet you got all arsey when you didn't like the reply. Please just go away and troll somewhere else.}

7.) 22 Jul 2018 09:48:32
If you scrolled through the pages for less than one minute farmer you'd of found your answers mate. You wonder why the eds might get pissed off at times, wouldn't you with the same questions almost every other hour? after repeating yourself constantly? I sure would, pull your head out of your arse and have some respect.

8.) 22 Jul 2018 09:52:29
Prick and arse felt like an under reaction to be honest Ed 😂.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 10:16:54
Farmer don't be an entitled arse. This question has been asked every day for over a month, with more or less the same answer every time. So surely you can see the eds and posters frustration when people still ask the same question when the answer is so easy to find?

10.) 22 Jul 2018 10:20:00
I would suggest even Ed001 has a life too and can do without the repeated questions. It's frustrating to read so God knows how frustrating it is to keep on answering them. A little bit of common decency goes a long way imo.

11.) 22 Jul 2018 09:56:03
As Ed02 always says, "RTP".

12.) 22 Jul 2018 10:46:32
Keepers coming and going at the very least from what Ed has said.

13.) 22 Jul 2018 11:12:18
It's persons like this that piss off the Eds and spoil it for the rest of us. It's ridiculous. Eds, if any of you smoke the jolly green plant I suggest to roll up a fat one. If you don't, now might be a good time to start!

14.) 22 Jul 2018 11:47:52
Actually to quote the Eds RTFP at this stage. Farmer, as Salah said two or three minutes browsing will get you the answers to your question. You probably spend more time on the toilet than that. Just make sure you don't drop your phone down there, that's not nice.

15.) 22 Jul 2018 11:47:59
Easy on farmer, he is clearly a child. Who else would ask someone to do something for them that they claim to be to busy to do themselves.

When you say you have a life, do you mean you're going shopping with your mum?

16.) 22 Jul 2018 11:49:04
I think the search bar needs to be made bigger, and bright yellow. Maybe add some flashing lights and sound effects. How are people supposed to use it if they have the option to ignore it?

17.) 22 Jul 2018 11:59:27
Cheers Ed, have a great day.

18.) 22 Jul 2018 12:33:30
Just click "other posts" and that is where you'll find this question asked the most, like quite a few times in quick succession too. it’s quite amazing how many people can’t read but can write lol.

19.) 22 Jul 2018 12:31:49
Oh dear, I literally can't spend one night not checking this site without coming back on to find some illiterate has asked Ed001 about Fekir. Where's the head banging off a wall emoji?

Ed001 on a scale of 2 to 13 with 2 being kevlar and 13 being marshmallow how hard do you think it would be for Fekir and Klopp to merge into a symbiotic zygote and if that were to happen how much of a signing on fee could be involved if or and when Mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom?

{Ed001's Note - what temperature would the scale be measured at?}

20.) 22 Jul 2018 12:54:48
Read the posts farmer, there is a search function meaning you could've found one of many, many, many responses the Ed's have given with regards to Fekir - it takes seconds to use, literally.
But no, instead you want to act like an entitled prick and get moody because an Ed doesn't want to answer the same question that has already been answer for the thousandth time. Get a grip and get your head out of your arse eh.

21.) 22 Jul 2018 13:08:44
274 degrees kelvin.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect you mean 0 degrees Kelvin.}

22.) 22 Jul 2018 15:49:33
I thought 001 was called Tris, not Kelvin.



26 Jan 2018 14:40:25
Perhaps not for here but.
It looks like Citeh are going after Fred from Shakter. I'd personally like then to sign Aden Flint from Bristol City just so they can have a starting line up which includes - Fred Flint Stones.

The Goatherder

{Ed002's Note - You should put that on the MC page.}

1.) 26 Jan 2018 15:15:05

4.) 26 Jan 2018 18:56:54
A gay old time. At least they’ll make the Bedrock. El Maestro get my cost while your there.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 02:24:10
Do not tell it in city page. they might sign him if they see.
