Good afternoon Eds. I saw an article linking Liverpool to Carlos Vinicius of Benfica. I didn't see anything with the search function, so I thought I'd ask about him.

Good goal scoring record this season, but I'd assume no interest at the price indicated, and also unless someone was leaving.



{Ed002's Note - I m not aware of any approach by Liverpool but he is having a very good season and would perhaps be a high risk option to Werner as a Firmino replacement. Portuguese pricing to fight off interest at something like €120M.}

1.) 11 Feb 2020 20:58:27
Thanks Ed.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 10:00:02
Would love Werner to arrive, but not as a Firmino replacement. Is that the only way it has a chance of happening?

{Ed002's Note - I would think so. Why would Werner join Liverpool to sit on the bench and play in League Cup games?}

3.) 12 Feb 2020 11:34:07
He wouldn’t your right.

4.) 12 Feb 2020 21:45:31
I am still sure that we will bring in another forward, to cover and to rotate with our front three, I think it will be someone who is fast and can score double figures, who normally plays on the right side, who is it?

{Ed025's Note - oumar niasse?.. :)

5.) 12 Feb 2020 23:16:48
I caught a bit of flak on here when I inquired about a replacement in the squad for Brewster prior to his departure. Usual sort of why sign someone to sit on the bench stuff. and yet Minamino was brought in. I understand that any deal for Werner would be on a different scale but believe we have progressed enough both on and off the pitch for it to be a possibility.

6.) 13 Feb 2020 10:08:18

7.) 16 Feb 2020 10:47:18
I went to watch Benfica v Braga last night. Vinicius was garbage, in fact there was not one player on the pitch that could get into a top 6 team in the Premier league.



01 Nov 2019 17:29:27
Good afternoon Eds. I saw a report on ESPN that Crystal Palace is looking to bring in Brewster on loan for the rest of the season. It also stated there were a few Championship teams interested as well (Bristol and Swansea as I recall) . Just wanted to see if there was any truth to the Crystal Palace rumor. Thanks!


{Ed002's Note - yes but Liverpool will look to block it.}

1.) 01 Nov 2019 18:30:03
Thanks for the reply Ed!

2.) 01 Nov 2019 21:25:08
Do you think it’s a good idea to keep him here rather than a loan?

{Ed002's Note - It depends if he is going to get game time or not - right now a loan would make sense for the player but I doubt the club see it that way unfortunately.}

3.) 01 Nov 2019 23:07:11
I think right now we need to be cautious as 1 or 2 injuries would mean he'd be needed in matchday squad, with league cup, fa cup and club world cup he should be guaranteed another few starts before January window ends, I'd think a loan opportunity should only be evaluated when we analyse our situation come then.

4.) 02 Nov 2019 07:17:31
I personally think we need to keep Brewster, especially with the fixtures coming think and fast between now and the end of the season.

5.) 01 Nov 2019 22:01:23
Agree, if he isn’t getting opportunities here he needs the game time! Do you think he would get game time at palace?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.)

6.) 01 Nov 2019 22:56:59
Ed. 002

Obviously he was injured last season but if this had been then it would have made sense. Right now he is our second reserve behind Origi as a forward. When Studge, Ings, Solanke, etc. were at the club he was way down the pecking order. Injuries occur, cup competitions occur, etc. While it would make sense for the players development to go out on loan it would be foolish for the club to let him go out. I think this one is a no brainer.

{Ed002's Note - Then it would be reasonable for him to want to move on in the summer.}

7.) 02 Nov 2019 19:02:42
If he can get regular premier league games it can only benefit him in the long run
A loan for me would be good.

8.) 02 Nov 2019 19:06:17
It's up to him but he's still only a teenager starting off his first season innvolved in the first team squad of the European champions. He knows he will have to be patient and I don't see the urgent rush for him to be demanding regular first team starting opportunites just yet, he'll get more game time as the season unfolds and it's up to him to show his potential. In 2 or 3 years our forwards will be passing into their 30s if they're all even still here by then, Brewster will only be 21 or 22 so I hope their isn't big pressure on him to feel he needs to rush his career.

If he's confident of his ability he'll want to stay and prove he's good enough. The likes of Abraham, Kane, rashford have shown that when they were given the rare chance in the team despite being down the pecking they took advantage with explosive immediate impacts. Brewster is still a kid who's coming back from a long injury. His career path doesn't need to be defined in the next year.

What I like is that klopp sees something in him to keep him around like he did with trent in his early days. He never wanted to keep Kent, Wilson, ojo around the team but he seems to have belief in young rhian which is great.

9.) 02 Nov 2019 23:51:46
Fully agree with that Har. It’s not like we’re holding him hostage against his will. He’s being paid to be a member of one of the best squads in world football. Why on earth would he want to go out on loan?
His focus should be on learning exactly the way the manager wants him to play and working so hard at it that he can’t be ignored. The fact Klopp wants him to stay around puts him at an advantage to the likes of Grujic as he’ll have to adapt if and when he comes back.
I’d also say that if he starts to throw his toys out and wants to move due to lack of playing time he’s not got the required character to make it at the top anyway.

10.) 03 Nov 2019 01:03:55
Yeah beckers but I don't see that kind of attitude being in Brewsters personality. He seems like a decent level headed kid so i doubt hed be the type to throw toys out of the pram. We seen lately with Camacho and Duncan, both 18 year olds who wanted to move on, I've no issue with any player making a career choice to move on but it's how they both acted publicy made me glad they're gone, when 18yr olds who've proved nothing start letting their false ego show so young then I can't think they will have the right mentality to succeed. Camacho publically bemoaning the decision of his manager to play him out of position is appalling lack of respect while Duncan publically slating the club shows me he's another kid with the wrong attitude.

Then we see the likes of origi, multi million pound international player who spent time sent out on loan, along with other periods where he was frozen out but he kept his head down and earned his future at the biggest club he'll play for simply by doing his taking on the field and never bringing the club or staff into public dispute. I feel Brewster is more like origi than the other 2 egos.

11.) 03 Nov 2019 07:04:17
We need to start finishing games off earlier so that we can give players a run out.

If We are scraping results late on and this will limit opportunities for fringe players.

12.) 03 Nov 2019 07:44:04
Might be the right thing for him to want to move, but wanting to hang on to him might also be the right thing for the club.

It's taken Origi a long while to earn his place in the squad.

A lot can happen between now and the summer; we know one of our front 3 wants away so I guess it's up to Brewster to prove his worth.

I guess he could always go on loan, as Origi did (admittedly not under good circumstances), and see where he and the club are in a year.

13.) 03 Nov 2019 10:47:43
I think if he got 10 starts this season he'd have to be happy, at the moment he's on course to do exactly that, while getting to train with the best team in the world. No problem here, kid and club are happy. a nothing story!

14.) 04 Nov 2019 10:57:37
Am I right in thinking he could go out on loan until January? If that's the case a decision should be made at the end of January based on what cups we are in. Got to imagination he will play the league and FA cup. Maybe a little in the champs league if we qualify early.



09 Mar 2019 15:09:28
Good morning Eds. I recall last year there were rumors that Liverpool were interested in Karim Demirbay. I used the search engine and noticed he hasn't been mentioned since the fall. I was just curious to know if there really was any interest and, if so, if that interest continues.


{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been added in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.}

1.) 09 Mar 2019 20:34:41
Thank you Ed. It's very much appreciated.



27 Feb 2019 19:22:07
Just a question for any of the Ed's that are available. Over the last few seasons, there have been some former Championship players that have become impact players for Premier League teams.

Are there any current Championship players you think we should keep an eye on, and are there any that Liverpool may be interested in? I don't get to see Championship matches where I am, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!


{Ed002's Note - Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB), but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}

1.) 27 Feb 2019 19:42:02
Ed2 - you are the wind beneath our wings sir! 😊
Thanks so much for all your incredible contribution!

{Ed002's Note - I guessed it would be "wind" based.}

2.) 27 Feb 2019 19:46:02
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

3.) 27 Feb 2019 21:00:48
Thank you for the info as ever Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:27:34
Ed2! good to see you around, thanks for the info, hows things?

{Ed002's Note - I am kicking my heels before leaving real early on Friday. Great result tonight and boosting the goals.}

5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:41:40
Who do you support ed 02? Just as a matter of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I have a soft spot for a few sides, Greenock Morton, Chelsea, and obviously Marseille. When I was a beautiful, pretty child with the most amazing hair there were no teams nearby. When i moved to England in 1981 my wife and I moved to Chelsea, close to the ground.}

6.) 27 Feb 2019 23:06:21
Hahaha ok thanx I don't know why but I thought u supported man United for some reason, balotelli is scoring still, and great result for Chelsea, greenock Morton I am not up on, cheers .

7.) 27 Feb 2019 23:49:35
Are you mates with jason manning? 😆. Admit you have a soft spot for us as well ed, the best fans in the land.



24 May 2018 15:47:22
Good Morning Eds. I see ESPN and a few others are reporting Liverpool interest in Christopher Nkunku. I checked the search engine and haven't seen his name mentioned in quite some time, so I thought I would ask if there was any actual interest. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - i don’t know but Fiorentina had discussions with him and stepped back because of demands for game time.}

1.) 24 May 2018 16:09:01
Thanks Ed002. It is greatly appreciated.

Great to see Hendo will be fit for tomorrow!


1.) 10 Mar 2020 19:18:04
Spot on, Dbav. We need Hendo for this type of game. he is the heart and soul of this team. My only concern is how much match-sharpness will he have cos he has not played since the first leg. We shall see.

2.) 10 Mar 2020 20:30:54
He’s a super fit player so will be fine.

3.) 11 Mar 2020 01:10:45
I think it's more important to fabinho and Trent that hendo can play in his role that offers a balance and structure that fabs and Trent have shown struggles lately without.

4.) 11 Mar 2020 12:40:58
Completely agree, our communication off the ball seemed to have dropped when Hendo was out.



08 Mar 2020 18:23:32
2 more wins!




11 Feb 2020 16:31:26
I would really love to see Keita in the lineup on Saturday. Perhaps Minamino or Origi as well.


1.) 11 Feb 2020 21:08:20
Why? the first choice players need a game.

2.) 11 Feb 2020 22:10:15
Keita is a first choice, whenever he's fit he starts.

3.) 11 Feb 2020 22:37:42
He’s never fit though and he’s not first choice. The ox will start ahead of him all day long!

4.) 11 Feb 2020 22:56:11
Wishful thinking thunderbird, first choice is hendo fab gini. Keita is a first team player and I think brilliant. Id love him to nail down a spot, atm he is just behind the ox imo.

5.) 12 Feb 2020 06:49:57
I really like Kieta but his appearance stats for us don’t read great. In the last 2 seasons he’s only featured in 32 premier league games (starting 18 of those) . Compare that to the Ox who’s featured in 19 and he was out for almost a year with a serious injury. You could probably say similar about Origi but the truth is Origi is more effective off the bench for us than he is a starter and when we bought Naby it wasn’t to be a player from the bench not at that price surely. I just hope he gets a decent run from now until the end of the season with no injuries so he can finally show as what he’s worth.

6.) 12 Feb 2020 16:53:28
JK23, I really like Keita too and I think the appearances stat you have used is a bit misleading. Keita played in 33 games in all competitions last season (don’t know how many he started), scoring 3 goals, and has played in 16 games in all competitions this season (don’t know how many he started), scoring 3 goals. That’s 49 appearances and 6 goals in the last 2 seasons - with13 PL games left and still in the CL and FA Cup, if he stays fit (I know it’s a big if) he could get up to 60 plus appearances and maybe 10 goals in 2 seasons. That wouldn’t be brilliant but it wouldn’t be disastrous either.

7.) 12 Feb 2020 17:19:45
Wirral agree mate but if you compared those stats to Hendo and Wiji (79 I believe majority started) I bet he would be way off. Not a bashing of the player as I really want him to succeed. It just feels like he’s never available. Similar to Shaq this season.

8.) 12 Feb 2020 19:28:34
JK23, it's only normal that Hendo and Gini have played and started more games than Naby cos well, they are not as injury prone and are Klopp's most trusted midfield generals who know the system on a granular level. Naby is not at this level yet even tho talent wise, he is a special player.

IMO, Naby is a fantastic talent and having watched a tonne of him playing at RBL before he came to us, I have no doubt about that. His injuries and he kind of injuries he has often, tell me that maybe his lifestyle is not legit and he is not doing enuff off the pitch to keep himself fit. There is a special player in there if only he can play say 10 games successively cos when he has played regularly, he has been fantastic and just when you think he is about to explode, he gets injured again.

9.) 12 Feb 2020 21:49:34
Rm that’s what I’m saying mate. I’m not doubting his talent it’s his availability that I’m worried about.

10.) 13 Feb 2020 04:14:33
What I'm trying to use as optimism is the fact he never seemed overly injury plagued in previous years and might come right soon. we've seen the OX and Gomez battle with injuries their career but we are backing them.



01 Feb 2020 12:23:10
I'm looking forward to seeing Ings get a nice reception today.


1.) 01 Feb 2020 14:07:28
Looks like a strong lineup today. Fabinho in, and Keita, Minamino and Origi on the bench. Ox in for Mane.

Was looking at the bench and again saw no back ups for TAA and Robertson. Am aware Gomez and Henderson can fill in, and we can shift around players, but how long can Klopp keep getting away with this?

2.) 01 Feb 2020 14:27:49
And not quite sure why we need both Lovren and Matip on bench.

3.) 01 Feb 2020 14:33:29
ArAy, what's wrong with Neco Williams, Yasser Larouci, Ki-Jana Hoever?

Henderson, Fabinho, Gomez and Milner can cover anyway.

I don't think signing wing backs is a priority. Maybe a case can be made for a left back as only Larouci of all of those players is left footed and he's probably the least first team ready too. No chance we should even be considering a right back though. We still need to get Clyne off theveage bill.

Trent and Robbo are going to start when fit and I really don't think we should stockpile players for 5 games a season. Let Man City waste the £50m on 4 different wing backs. Fat lot of good it's doing them anyway.

4.) 01 Feb 2020 14:34:38
There’s more than enough cover for RB (Gomez, Henderson, perhaps Wijnaldum at a push) . It’s LB cover that looks bare, would have to shift TAA over, or play a right-footed midfielder in there?
But, in general, there’s nothing wrong with good versatile footballers that can play in multiple positions.

5.) 01 Feb 2020 14:50:14
Adam, those two (Williams and Hoever) are not on the bench tonight. Milner and Larouci are out injured for the mid-term.

My comments were restricted to the team sheet for today's game. Shifting players around mid-game in case of injury is not exactly the best way to manage a squad of 25.

6.) 01 Feb 2020 17:06:18
Well, with 73 points on the board that's Arsenal officially out of the race.
If Utd and Spur lose their next games, which I think they will, then that's them done also.

7.) 01 Feb 2020 17:25:14
Gomez can play down the left too. Milner, larouci and even Lewis at a push. I believe we can still win with Adam Lewis in the team. Robertson had a good game today though and showed why we don't need a lb.

8.) 01 Feb 2020 18:32:03
Saw a great video of Klopp and the team hugging Ings after the game. I thought that was pretty great.

9.) 01 Feb 2020 18:35:31
If anyone hasn’t seen it, have a look out for ings reception by the players after the game. Lovely to see and so glad he is now doing well. It’s a shame he had those injuries as he is such a Klopp type player and I would loved to have seen it what he could do with these players.

10.) 01 Feb 2020 19:44:26
Classy player isn't he. For years I thought of him as a good poacher and a nice finisher, but he's so much more than that eh. Didn't Rodgers sign him? One of his better signings. The saints boss is top though. He's doing good wrork with an average squad. Ings would get goals in any tea m I thinl.

11.) 01 Feb 2020 19:46:31
I will trust Klopp’s management of the squad over yours ArAy.

12.) 01 Feb 2020 20:16:34
ArAy1969, how long can Klopp keep getting away with it? Judging by his record so far, I would say as long as it takes to win the PL with a record number of points and quite possibly an unbeaten season. Is that long enough for you?



29 Dec 2019 23:05:18
Just want to say again how nice it is to see Gomez and Keita really stepping up in the last few weeks. I thought Lallana had a solid game as well.


1.) 29 Dec 2019 23:40:37
Yeh fair play mate. I thought Salah looked sharp tonight didn’t have many clear cut opportunities but looked fresh considering the busy schedule. Both teams looked leggy though understandably.
