Rasmus hojlund. have we any interest in him as a firmino replacement? Nothing came up in the search, thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Rasmus Hojlund (S) A primary target for Milan. Napoli will look to him if they lose Osihem, Inter if they lose Lukaku and Juventus if they lose Vlahovic. Newcastle, Brighton and Arsenal have sent scouts. A wildcard option might be Manchester United. Real Madrid have spoken with Atalanta to propose a solution that would see a one year loan back. Atalanta will not look to sell.}

1.) 27 Mar 2023 14:22:55
Thanks Ed.

2.) 27 Mar 2023 19:18:19
I know I am jumping the gun, but I really like the look of Evan Fegurson.

{Ed002's Note - I think he already has a girlfriend.}

3.) 27 Mar 2023 19:51:39
Well he sure does seem to like banging them in. Really disappointing to see Bazunu starting ahead of Kelleher tonight. Ed have any clubs enquired about Kelleher?

{Ed002's Note - Caoimhin Kelleher (G) The player needs to consider his future and could look to move on for first team football in the summer. Whilst Spurs are looking for a new GK, they have identified a first choice target they would like and I am not aware of any approach to Liverpool about CK and they will have a new coach this summer who will have his own ideas, but they have looked at him. He will have interested clubs in the summer.

4.) 28 Mar 2023 00:17:05
Thank you Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

We are being linked to joao Pedro of fluminese in one of the papers today, anyone know if there is anything in it, cheers.


1.) 25 May 2019 21:23:51
Would be surprised as Watford have already agreed a deal.

2.) 26 May 2019 11:49:32
That's what it said, but said Liverpool were ready to hijack the move.

3.) 26 May 2019 12:30:57
He isn't 18 yet so the deal can be "hijacked" doubt it though with duncan and brewster looking to break through, perhaps why we need a strong forward, to replace the under 18s lads.



26 Aug 2017 11:31:41
German papers reporting we are trying to sign dermibay from hoffenheim, that's a new one, has anyone heard anything.


1.) 26 Aug 2017 11:54:17
all because klopp hugged him after the match and had a small discussion and the guy laughed lol.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 12:13:54
I didn't see that, I asked because I saw the story in the Euro papers on the sky app.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 13:20:36
Alright gmil, I posted about 6 week ago that Demibray was at Anfield before he went to play with Germany in the confederations cup. I did ask eds about it, and they reply that would be tapping up but that's nothing new with all teams. So I do believe the is interest but probably next year.

4.) 27 Aug 2017 07:59:30
He Klopp did not tap him up again.



18 Oct 2014 08:35:30
Hey Ed, was just wondering with sturridge being injured again do you see Liverpool signing a forward in January or staying with what they have


{Ed001's Note - not sure how an injury in October will be relevant to the January window?}

Premier league clubs to vote on scrapping var for next season . what do you think.


1.) 15 May 2024 18:13:33
On the fence but think the automatic offside tech should still be implemented as planned.

2.) 15 May 2024 18:18:39
I really hope so. It hasn’t enhanced the game at all.

3.) 15 May 2024 18:22:56
I would just go for semi automatic offside and goal technology and let the rest be judged by referee on the ground.

4.) 15 May 2024 18:34:23
VAR hasn't worked because the people implementing it aren't up to scratch. They can't make consistent decisions, even with video replays.

Scrapping it won't reduce the number of "wtf was he thinking? " moments, Webb will just be able to say 'the ref didn't see it' when he's on Sky Sports.

5.) 15 May 2024 18:35:17
VAR has taken the enjoyment out of the game . and the Refs have gone worse too .

6.) 15 May 2024 18:38:13
F. k it off. To put it nicely or get some people who haven't been bought with money to run in properly.

7.) 15 May 2024 18:57:10
Bin it off. Fair play to wolves for having the balls to stand up.

8.) 15 May 2024 19:00:09
Needs a rugby league type system. Yes they have the odd mistake but nowhere near the same amount.

The fans aren't constantly moaning about bad calls and the refs are respected by players. I honestly don't know why it's so difficult to get right with a bit of common sense.

9.) 15 May 2024 19:00:56
W automated offsides it serves no purpose. The play acting has gone off the scale since VAR came in. It won't solve that issue completely but the game will be much better without it. There will be some wrong decisions throughout the season like there used to be but for me refs get more wrong w VAR than they ever did without it. Bin it and give us back the passion of football that we've been missing.

10.) 15 May 2024 19:02:56
Exactly, Something Red and that is what people are missing. The PGMOL did NOT want VAR to be implemented to begin with as it would take away some of their power over games that keep them famous in the media. So they implemented it in a way to cause chaos and turn people off to the point that now, it could be voted out hence, power is back to Webbo and his bros. Mission Accomplished, me thinks!

11.) 15 May 2024 19:07:10
Successfully sabotaged by the PGMOL with utterly horrendous implementation .

Self preservation by PGMOL.

12.) 15 May 2024 19:16:47
The automated offside will be in i think so I don't see the need for it anymore, if they could use it properly might be a different story.

13.) 15 May 2024 19:31:07
My personal view beyond binning it off is that it should be like cricket, each manager having two appeals each half, lose the appeal if VAR says the decision made by the ref is right and keep it of proven wrong. Goal line decisions being the only thing automatic and VAR being operated by experts who aren’t referees.

14.) 15 May 2024 19:32:00
Ron, Oli, personally I wouldn't go as far as suggesting they deliberately sabotaged it (although I can understand that point of view), I think it's just simple incompetence, followed up with a dose of ass covering from Webb when he's talking to Michael Owen on Monday nights.

It's abundantly clear that Webb is quite happy to talk his way out of nearly any ref's decision, no matter how inconsistent with previous ones. So I don't think the presence or lack thereof of VAR will make a difference to him and the PGMOL.

15.) 15 May 2024 19:35:10
How long before everyone wants it’s back when there is a terrible decision week one?

I stand by the fact that VAR isn’t the issue, it’s how it’s implemented.

They should be mic’d up, the crowd being in the dark isn’t good for the game. Ideally they’d be screens but not sure that’s viable in most grounds.

Stop slow mo replays, it should be full speed only. Final call with the ref.

And keep with the rollout of semi automated offsides which fixes its biggest problem of offsides (hopefully! ) .

Long term I’d have it independent from PGMOL and effectively have two teams. I think there is still an element of not wanting to say a ref called it wrong.

16.) 15 May 2024 22:47:12
WYred, you better believe that the same people saying for ages that VAR should be scrapped will be some of the same people screaming for it to return when they realize that things were actually NOT better without it. We will all be here to see it happen.

17.) 15 May 2024 22:53:48
There is nothing wrong with VAR, at least from a technical perspective.

The basic problem is the people applying the technology are prone to human error and once they get a decision wrong it undermines both the trust of the fans in not only VAR but also the match officials .

It has happened far too many times. VAR, as it currently stands should be withdrawn, ‘fixed’ in terms of the human component in whatever way that may be, and them gradually re-introduced on an incremental basis - national leagues first, then Leagues 1 and 2 and then PL and Championship.

There’s also work needed around who triggers the VAR review and under what circumstances and who (or what) acts as QA to verify the VAR decision - maybe something along the lines of RL or RU where the referee provides an on-field decision which stands if VAR checking is inconclusive or in doubt.

18.) 15 May 2024 23:06:34
VAR, theoretically, a brilliant tool.

Alas, unfortunately managed by tools.

19.) 15 May 2024 23:25:59
The technology has glitches but the main issue with VAR is the people who are using the technology.

They have made some terrible mistakes and they are not showing signs of significant improvement

As it stands VAR has spoilt enjoyment for the fans and in its present guise it should be scrapped.

20.) 16 May 2024 00:00:22
I'll take bad decisions before incidents being overanalysed and emotions being drained from the game.
No one watches a game to see the referee get every decision correct. We watch it to get us on our feet and losing ourselves even if for only a few seconds.
Sod right decisions ? and not every decision can be correct anyway.

21.) 16 May 2024 00:03:09
gets more right than wrong.
need to fine tune the process and language around purpose of VAR to enahnce it.
caveman mentality to get rid of it because of the big mistakes. move forward and make it better. don't just go backwards.

22.) 16 May 2024 00:13:34
Please end VAR now it's bloody awful.

23.) 16 May 2024 01:33:14
absolutely no one will be thankful there is no VAR when there is goal after goal given or denied due to a an errant flag.

24.) 16 May 2024 01:40:32
Scrap the lot, it was better beforehand. I aren't really bothered and will be ignorant to specifics. It was better before it was implemented, get rid of it.

25.) 16 May 2024 06:22:09
Id get rid of it but also get rid of Webb and bring in the grim reaper Collina himself. Pay him whatever he wants for 3 years to sort out the refs and rescue the EPL. money worth spending imo.

26.) 16 May 2024 07:50:11
Faith, Sometimes I used to behave like a caveman when we scored. Now I think 'hang on, how can this goal be ruled out? '
I could record games and watch them knowing the score and what happened and why but I'd sooner be a caveman for a couple of hours.
That's what football is for me when I watch it; especially Liverpool. It's a release.

27.) 16 May 2024 07:56:49
The absolute idiots could not even see that it was a pen on Gordon tonight when I challenge anyone in the world to see that as anything but a penalty. The humans implementing it are unfit for purpose. But that is the same all over the world in positions of power.

The peasants are in most cases the ones who see things clear as they are not blinded by the disgusting stench of corruption. It’s quite funny that perused call footballers out for their lack of intelligence but they seem to be being ruled by people of zero intelligence whatsoever.

A truly sorry state of affairs the worst season I can ever remember for wrong decisions being given that where clearly wrong as clear as day.



01 Jun 2023 13:53:51
If (big IF) liverpool extended the last 2 stands of anfield what would the capacity be? Anyone any idea?


1.) 01 Jun 2023 14:21:20
I think it's academic as the infrastructure surrounding the stadium would be required to be updated (at significant cost) before any further seats could be added.

Won't be worth it, financially.

2.) 01 Jun 2023 14:34:54
Liverpool fc can’t extend anymore stand with without changing the Infrastructure. We are at a max 61 k. So we would probably have to add a train route, trams or some other way of moving people out quickly. Plus the areas around the kop and KD stands have houses, pubs and churches on them so it not easy at all to make this happen. Although there is an old train line close that doesn’t get used as for as I know.

3.) 01 Jun 2023 14:54:40
Also the Dalglish stand can’t be extended without demolishing houses and the Kop I believe can’t be extended either, that would need to be knocked down and started again to be built with more seats so it looks a none starter. It’s frustrating as a fan because we are still way below the capacity of what we could fill every week, if the stadium was 70k plus I think tickets would be much easier to come by, Utd who have a bigger fan base have tickets pretty obtainable with a capacity of 75k. I have been a regular through the years at Anfield but stopped going regulars for a while when in the forces, I am lucky my next door neighbour has a season ticket and occasionally gives me tickets but I am going to renew my membership this season with my 5 year old lad in the hope we can get a few tickets this season but I’m not holding out much hope, also think paying £25 for the chance to get tickets is a bit of a swindle but hey ho that’s football.

4.) 01 Jun 2023 15:20:12
You’re right there CC the membership is a con. It should come with an option to at least be able to purchase tickets for one of the lesser PLgames.

5.) 01 Jun 2023 15:26:39
First year I got membership I managed to get lucky and get a ticket (me and 2 kids) . Ever since I've not had a sniff even after applying for every game so it does feel like a waste of money. Hoping the additional seats will mean a slightly better chance.
Shame we can't go further than 61k. There are so many people that don't even bother trying to get tickets any more that will could fill significantly more seats.

6.) 01 Jun 2023 15:45:16
On capacity, if you could extend both stands capacity would be approximately 75,000.

{Ed002's Note - That is not going to happen.}

7.) 01 Jun 2023 15:55:26
OP 6O plus thousand, I read somewhere.

8.) 01 Jun 2023 15:57:36
City do the exact same thing speaking to a mate so we aren’t the only club, it’s been made tougher to get tickets the last few years as we are playing some great football and having success, under previous managers it was much easier to get tickets. Frustrating thing is I was on the season ticket waiting list about 20/ 25 years ago but when they sent letters out to confirm I wanted to stay on the list I was abroad with the army, when I got back I had missed the deadline and on calling up to explain my situation I got told bad luck which was a bit naff. I would have probably had a season ticket now, although it would have left me stuck with my lad.

9.) 01 Jun 2023 16:08:37
Mark- that’s a good idea, having membership guarantees you 1 ticket and it’s a fair way of doing it.
It used to be fan cards which cost a nominal fee (£1/ 5) and that got you access to tickets but you could purchase a membership which got you access to a ballot for every game which was automatic and they contacted you to let you know if you had won a ticket and it was much better odds as there was less members. I’m just hoping in the coming years I can get myself in a position where I can get on 10 or so games a season with my lad but it might be a double edge sword as it might mean it’s like the Hodgson era when tickets could be had as the football was awful!

10.) 01 Jun 2023 16:14:25
On the online you can get City tickets for face value. If Liverpool are doing well then tickets are north of £300 for a normal match.

11.) 01 Jun 2023 16:48:38
The Kop should be extended upwards and become a wall just like Dortmund, that's the only stand that needs it.

12.) 01 Jun 2023 19:15:08
Waiting list for season tickets is 28 years.

Mark I can get tickets at face value but it’s part of a membership season ticket franchise. Sometimes there are pull outs in the week of games. I can’t promise anything but if there’s a way of getting your email or contact then I can let you know.

Like I said I can’t promise anything mate and it’s likely to be midweek league games and domestic cups for pull outs.

13.) 01 Jun 2023 20:10:18
Zed, it was said that expanding the Anfield Road stand did not make any financial sense either, and yet it's happening and has almost already happened.

14.) 01 Jun 2023 20:40:06
Aray perhaps FSG did it for the love of the club then over financial sense.

Plus they proved it even more by only giving 40% of the new seats to corporate which then allows 4 thousand more fans into Anfield on match day.

15.) 01 Jun 2023 21:04:26
Cheers JK, when Ed 033 is about I will ask him how to proceed. We don’t need many matches but it’s great to take your son to the game every now and again.

{Ed033's Note - You 2 are going to have to send your email addresses either via the contact form or a posting form for Ed033's attention.

16.) 01 Jun 2023 23:12:08
Lancaster, to knock down the Kop and to build it bigger just wouldn’t be viable, it’s already a big single tier stand, you wouldn’t be getting many extra seats for the work it would take.



18 May 2023 13:53:18
Ed 01 if you will . I see you mention morton a few times on threads and I haven't seen much of him myself, is he that good or potentially, what is his attributes etc


{Ed001's Note - he is very good technically. He is very fast and has a good brain on him. Also I like that he learns well. One thing I would say he is weak at is heading. I have never seen a player misread the ball in the air as often as he did in one particular game. I can't remember the game but I do remember him misjudging every single header. It was very odd. He has come on in leaps and bounds this season, mostly playing in a holding role, which is something we need cover for. His recovery pace is a particular asset in that position as he can get out to wide areas and get back centrally very quickly to pressure the ball.}

1.) 18 May 2023 14:38:10
Thanks for sharing Ed. I've never seen him play this season but from what I saw before, I always thought of him as more of a high energy, box-to-box type of midfielder. Kinda interesting that he developed into more of a holding player this season.

{Ed001's Note - he played a few for us as a holding player, but he was still raw and struggled.}

2.) 18 May 2023 14:58:13
I know a few Blackburn rovers fans (season ticket holders) that say he is atrocious and has by no means played all the games he was available for, for them. Covered at centre back a few times as well. He gets battered on the rovers social media pages and is simply not at a good enough level for Liverpool. I know he is young but so is my son and he won’t be playing for Liverpool anytime soon either.

3.) 18 May 2023 15:08:19
I look forward to seeing him play. When I last saw him play he didn't look up to standard and I must admit I thought he would be another Woodburn.

4.) 18 May 2023 16:21:49
I can’t see him playing for our first team next season either Tolk. He was dropped half through the season and started to play again after injuries to others, fingers crossed for the lad but atm he is championship standard.

5.) 18 May 2023 16:23:39
Reign the positivity in totk.

6.) 18 May 2023 16:56:50
I saw him play a few games for Blackburn and he was in their top 3 players in every game I saw with Wharton and Brereton-Diaz. He anchored their midfield very well in my opinion and they will probably miss him next season if he doesn't go back.

I'd be happy to have him back as a squad player but we shouldn't be relying on players like Morton and Clarkson to come back and make a difference in my opinion. Our midfield needs first team quality additions. They could maybe replace Arthur and Ox as deep squad options but we need 1st team quality players to replace Milner and Keita.

For example I'd take Connor Bradley back to replace Ramsay in the squad, but if Trent was leaving there is no way I'd be advocating Bradley replaces him after 1 good season in a much weaker league. Same as I won't advocate Morton or Clarkson replace Keita and Milner who were regulars in the starting XI when fit.

7.) 18 May 2023 17:08:08
Pre season will certainly be interesting and spots are up for grabs. I will be more than happy if one of the youngsters mentioned makes an impact next season.

8.) 18 May 2023 17:51:45
A bit early to be writing off a 20 yr old, isn't it? I don't think there's any expectation of him coming in and being a first teamer next season; championship standard at that age isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'd be more concerned with his potential, ability to learn and improve his game, and attitude over what Blackburn fans (does it matter they're season holders? ) and social media think.

9.) 18 May 2023 18:50:03
MK, going to be honest, I'd advocate nearly anybody who can play football and actually show some effort more than 4 times in 5 years to replace Keita.

10.) 18 May 2023 18:54:24
I think out of all our loaned players this season, the guy who I think can break through next season is Bradley at RB. He’s had an excellent season at Bolton and he plays a position that is essentially up for grabs (if Arnold moves into midfield) . Both Bradley and a fully fit Ramsey can save us millions in that position for arguably the next decade.

If Arnold does move into midfield it would give us.


Before any signings are made.

11.) 18 May 2023 20:09:34
Needs a PL loan I think. If Fabinho is staying let Morton get 30+ games at a Palace or West Ham rather than a few off the bench for us then come back for the following season if he does well.

12.) 18 May 2023 18:56:02
I’ve seen him live a couple times. He won’t get in the team.

13.) 19 May 2023 01:23:32
Not good enough.



16 Aug 2021 19:06:17
Eds I read earlier that the super league is back on that all the teams that backed out are now back on board with it and all they're waiting on is a court ruling . is this true and if so how after agreeing to uefa sanctions after the last time? TIA.


{Ed002's Note - No, it is probably referring to an upcoming meeting of the "elite" sides later this month. The court ruling has already happened and it is not something that applies to Liverpool. Don't worry.}

1.) 17 Aug 2021 07:22:12
Thanks Ed.



07 Feb 2020 22:41:04
Ed if I may, just read that spurs have installed barriers for safe standing in their ground, I believe a lot of clubs are in favour of this but are Liverpool even considering it for anfield?


{Ed002's Note - The PL clubs regularly discuss it and most know that supporters try and stand. The problem is that not all clubs can agree and it is more than likely to be a phased implementation. Liverpool are not one of the clubs pushing for it.}

1.) 08 Feb 2020 08:09:12
Only time you sit in the kop is warm ups and halftime. They do ask everyone to sit but that’s never going to happen.

I think we could see kelleher (game time) adrian, Stimykas, gravenberch, matip, thiago, salah and possibly diaz, so we could bring in upto 4 players, lcb, dm, no.10 type and a striker, maybe a keeper too if the new manager deems what back ups we have not good enough/ ready.

Agreed andrew seems like a nice guy from the interview, think we need 4 players personally lb/ lcb cb dm type and a rf, possibly a keeper if kelleher and adrian go, ed002 said he was a good coach so that's a good enough endorsement for me, I've watched a few feyenoord games since he was linked and they did play good attacking football and watched some tactics videos and if we can get playing the way he wants from the off it should be a good season.
