premier league to start from 17th of june hope this news is true.


1.) 28 May 2020 15:41:41
its been reported on the bbc page. Man city vs Arsenal and Villa vs Sheffield utd, that will be followed by a full round of fixtures W/ C 19-21 june.

2.) 28 May 2020 15:59:41
Still not going to celebrate just yet, think the key will be the tests and results after contact training returns. If a small amount come back positive then I think we will be ok, a large amount or a high amount within one team and we will be back to square one.

3.) 28 May 2020 17:35:59
there is a virus ok but it’s blown out of proportion 4 people I’ve heard died 2 cancer 1 old age 1 heart attack and they were told they had the virus, get the ball rolling and it be forgotten!



20 May 2020 10:37:29
ed002 what do you expect to happen with Brewster. Do you think he has got what it takes to play at the very top. do you see him staying at Swansea next season or do you think he might get a loan move somewhere else.


{Ed002's Note - Throughout his career to date it has been expected that he would have a good future - then he got injured which has been a bit of a set back. I think a loan to Swansea again woud perhaps be a good solution - but what happens with the AFCON will be in the mind of the club. Everyone seems comfortable he has what it takes.}

1.) 20 May 2020 11:06:44
Thanks Ed was not sure if the injury was a bit Career refining with it being so bad. If we do make a move for Timo could you see a loan the other way for him as part of the deal.

{Ed002's Note - It came at a bad time.}

2.) 20 May 2020 14:19:23
Same could be said of paul glatze, he looks like he also has real potential.

3.) 20 May 2020 18:04:41
I think he has a future at Liverpool, he just needs to be patient and learn to play a number of roles in the forward line.

This virus maybe a blessing in disguise for him as we may hold back on buying a new forward.

4.) 20 May 2020 21:27:57
If we buy Werner then that pushes Brewster down the pecking order I’m afraid, also Divock is in front of him.

5.) 21 May 2020 08:17:27
It’s looking unlikely we will sign werner.



12 May 2020 10:06:01
ed002 do you think they should have all ready worked out what should be done if they cannot finish the season, plan for the worst hope for the best. All ways seems better to plan for all scenarios rather than acting on it in the last minute let the clubs know what all options are from the start.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, it should have been addressed.}

1.) 12 May 2020 11:23:59
Fail to prepare means prepare to fail.

2.) 12 May 2020 13:23:47
Ed002 is it still the plan to have cl and el in August. If so would it not be better to look to start the league in July them 3 or 4 weeks could make such a difference. The teams could start training in June. . Hopefully we should be a lot further forward in the virus by then.

{Ed002's Note - It will not be possible to complete the games in three or four weeks. The plan is still to play the CL and EL in August. And don't forget that tehre are FA Cup games that The FA want to complete by the end of the first week in August.}

3.) 12 May 2020 14:21:10
ed can I ask how they plan to do Cl and El games would they still be 2 legs as they can't have home and away with psg not allowed to play home games or will it be like a little tournament in one country turkey for cl not sure where the el final is to be held.

{Ed002's Note - They plan on playing out the missing second legs behind closed doors at neutral venues and then single leg games for the remaining ties at neutral venues. Locations were to be Russia and Turkey - but that needs re-thinking.}



20 Mar 2020 15:50:47
Mohamed Salah has reportedly donated £1.1m to help Egypt hospitals fighting against the Coronavirus. well done MO xx.


1.) 21 Mar 2020 06:32:28
I think he donates regularly to various charities.

2.) 22 Mar 2020 18:37:37
Not his biggest fan but good on him for that gesture.



10 Dec 2019 22:41:43
Ed001 do we have any interest in Minamino he looked Klopp type player in both games against us. not seen him play any more than them 2 games but the lad never stopped running and seemed to have a good football brain with the runs he made. I think he would be a great back up to Mane and salah.


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

1.) 11 Dec 2019 04:18:53
I was thinking a great back up to Firmino. But yeah.

2.) 11 Dec 2019 11:56:39
I would love Minimino. I think he would be a fantastic signing to provide injury cover and depth as well as help push for competition in the side. Only watched him twice, but thoroughly impressed, reminds me of Kagawa before he left Dortmund and ruined his careers.

I genuinely think Liverpool had one of the harder groups this year, Salzburg are a fantastic team and if they don't get ripped apart in the summer transfer window I could see them performing well again next season.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 17:12:50
Hopefully they can stop ManU back dooring another easy route to CL like a few years ago!

4.) 12 Dec 2019 08:54:50
You have seen only two games and think he would be good back up
that is some real dangerous scouting there mate lol
tbh he looks good but players often raise their game when playing a big team so to speak and so be careful after two games wanting to sign someone.

5.) 12 Dec 2019 09:22:07
Paul Joyce reporting this morning that we’ll try for him in January. Be a great signing if we could get it over the line.

6.) 12 Dec 2019 09:38:26
Morning eds n reds

Like all of you i've only seen him in the two games against us but he seems the sort of player klopp likes. he's quick, some skill and never stops running. Ed2, Janes Pearce is reporting we will bid for him. I know you have answered already, but is there any change.

Cheers all.

{Ed002's Note - Augsburg were keen in the summer and at one time Everton and Dynamo Moscow had scouts look at Takumi Minamino. His agent and a third party lawyer have held discussions recently with Werder Bremen about the player and seemingly Liverpool are interested, but I am not aware of any offer being made just yet.}

7.) 12 Dec 2019 09:42:04
just seen on sky sports we are in for him and he has a £7.25m release clause that would be a right bargain. in this day and age.

{Ed002's Note - Any "release clause" would be irrelevant for Liverpool.}

8.) 12 Dec 2019 09:56:13
There ya go now it's reported we are in for him for 7mil in the January window.

9.) 12 Dec 2019 09:56:45
According to Paul Joyce of the times Klopp is a driving force for a 7milliion move this January.

10.) 12 Dec 2019 11:12:54
ed002 is every release clause the same I know you have said in the summer about Julian Brandt release clause being for German clubs only but I don't get why Minamino would have one for the same league as he is in as he is all ready at the best club there.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation with realse clauses, buy out clauses and termination clauses on many occasions. Firmino had a €25M "release" clause but Liverpool paid far mor for the player.}

11.) 12 Dec 2019 11:57:26
Thanks ed2. Going to be a busy day for you .

08 Jul 2020 21:10:51
ed001 what's your thoughts on Ox I never wanted us to sign him, But he is so much better than I thought he was. I just don't get why he gets played out wide I can't think of one game where he has played well out there through the middle he gives so much more. I would of loved to see Harvey Elliott get a start out wide.


{Ed001's Note - he is much better in midfield, but he has the energy and pace to play out wide. The issue was that after the first ten minutes, when Keita was right up for it, he dropped off and we lost control of the midfield. If he had played like he started off for the full half, maybe Ox would have been able to get more attacking play. He certainly had the beating of Lamptey when he got a run.}



30 Jun 2020 19:48:33
ed002 do we any interest any of Evan N'dicka Lucas Hernandez or Malang Sarr seems they would be great to cover both cb and left back. I think Lucas Hernandez would be a bit to much trying to get him from Bayern. cheers ed.


{Ed002's Note - No.}



29 Jun 2020 15:43:30
ed002 is there any interest Koulibaly from anywhere. With the transfer fee and age I just can't see any club showing an interest in players of that age for them sort of fees and wages. At 29 you never know when players turn into there 30s when there legs will go I guess that why Chelsea never give longer than 1 year contracts for players of 30 years seen so many players come back for the next season and there legs have just gone over the summer.


{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest in him from elsewhere but they will be looking to do something over the price and Napoli have a replacement lined up.}

1.) 29 Jun 2020 16:29:21
70plus mill for a 29 year old doesn't make sense to me. Would be a glorious defence though.

2.) 29 Jun 2020 17:05:39
Ben white for half the price!

3.) 29 Jun 2020 17:21:23
Diego Carlos for me.

4.) 29 Jun 2020 18:25:06
Diego Carlos looks a bit reckless to me always looking to dive into challenges that don’t need to be made. Not at all like VVD, Gomes or Matip and we’re trying to offload one of those already in Lovren. Plus at the fee Sevilla want I can’t see it happening, not least because Madrid are also sniffing around. I reckon we need to shop smartly (if we are at all in the market) and go for a defender who can cover both CB and LB, maybe Boubakar Kamara or Nathan Ake? Both of them can play CB and LB comfortably.

5.) 29 Jun 2020 18:55:09
Joe Gomez for me.

6.) 29 Jun 2020 19:11:38
Neither the Napoli player or Seville player will be at anfield come start of next season
We will not be signing any big players that is quite obvious and we really don’t even need to
A back up left for Robbo would be nice but we have Milner and Gomez if any emergencies arise
Up top we have Harvey Eliot the and while he is young I’m telling you this lad is something special
And no one knows what is even going to happen with Harry Wilson yet or Brewster
So we we can wait for signings there is no rush.

7.) 29 Jun 2020 19:19:59
And where are we getting the money to buy these players who would cost more than Timo Werner who we could not afford? Just asking for a friend.

8.) 29 Jun 2020 19:28:15
Ake would be an interesting one but I strongly doubt Bournemouth will let him go, and if they do it won't be cheap. Might aswell pay top dollar for a CB if we are going to bother.

9.) 29 Jun 2020 23:05:13
We already have a glorious defence.

10.) 30 Jun 2020 13:12:02
FlashTheRed, haven't you heard? It is never enuff for some on here. LFC have had the best defence in the PL statistically for the past near 2 seasons now BUT hey, I guess is is still not "glorious" enuff. Go figure.



28 Jun 2020 11:47:21
ed001 is there a midfielder out there you would like us to sign for when Milner leaves or hangs up his boots a player like him Henderson and Gini as I think them 3 are all the same type of player for us and so important on how we play and they are all 30 this year. I don't see Ox or Keita as the same sort of players.


{Ed001's Note - Ndombele from Spurs if Klopp can get him playing, he is an excellent player. He doesn't get on with Jose so a move would be good for all parties. I like Aouar too, but not sure he is that type of player. The Longstaff brothers might both have their uses too.}

1.) 28 Jun 2020 12:00:19
Only one player. Fabian Ruiz from Napoli. Such a class act. Vision, technique, skill and he is young too. Reminds me of every bit of the great Santi Carzola. We have to get one imo. All the above are nearing their 30’s.

2.) 28 Jun 2020 12:06:39
I like Ndombele too. A sort of combative Gini.

{Ed001's Note - agreed mate. On his day he is a very good player, it is surprising it has gone so badly at Spurs.}

3.) 28 Jun 2020 12:10:04
There was a rumor Klopp had asked about Ndombele on loan about a month ago Ed. Can you recall anything about that?

{Ed001's Note - never heard that sorry. It doesn't make any sense to take him on loan.}

4.) 28 Jun 2020 12:11:21
Whats your views on Declan Rice?

{Ed001's Note - I like Rice a lot but I was thinking of players that might potentially be in a lower price bracket - the more affordable ones.}

5.) 28 Jun 2020 12:16:45
Ndombele has fitness issue and doesn’t work hard enough .

{Ed001's Note - there was never any problems like that before his move to Spurs. The issue is with the move.}

6.) 28 Jun 2020 12:22:59
Aouar would be a dream, do you think he will leave Lyon this summer?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I would think finances will be difficult for everyone this summer and so possibilities exist if teams have the cash to take advantage.}

7.) 28 Jun 2020 12:26:31
ed001 it is a little to early to know but if Neco Williams steps up next season, Do you think Trent could do there jobs he has got the work rate. But they would be big boots for Neco to fill with the amount of assists Trent gives us from right back. I like the look of Ndombele on the ball ed not sure about his work rate from what I have seen of him at spurs. What do you think of Lo Celso at spurs after a slow start he seems to be picking up a bit now, HE looks good on the ball seems to put a shift in to. Back when we was on the top ed this is when we all ways looked for the future get the right young players in to learn the system before they have to play in the first team. I think the squad we have could be up there for the next 3 years without any new players coming in with there ages.

{Ed001's Note - we need two right backs, so shifting Trent to midfield would just leave us in need of another signing there. Ndombele was a grafter who is unhappy, I would not judge him on his Spurs performances, Jose is handling him appallingly, using him as a scapegoat and a target for his ire.

Lo Celso is technically exceptional but tactically I am not so sure, he drifts too much. Spurs are playing 2 hard running midfielders to cover for him. We don't have that in our system.}

8.) 28 Jun 2020 12:38:31
Kevin De Bruyne would do 👀😂 but realistically I think Firmino will be dropping in and a striker being bought.

9.) 28 Jun 2020 12:46:28
“Lo Celso is technically exceptional but tactically“

I got dog abuse for saying this a few days back! Thanks for doing this 😅😅😅. All the pundits who mocked me would be Mum a after reading this lol.

The lad is first class and I don’t miss those. Spurs doesn’t have a proper DM to partner him there and that’s the problem.

I always had a crush on left footed Center mids 😅😅😅.

{Ed001's Note - you are not reading it properly.}

10.) 28 Jun 2020 12:48:22
Disagree on spurs playing two hard runners. They don’t. He has been playing alongside a piss poor Dier, a useless Winks or a poor Sissokho.

Pair him with Fabinho 😅😅😅.

{Ed001's Note - how are you disagreeing? You clearly are not understanding what I am saying again.}

11.) 28 Jun 2020 12:50:38
Bobby is a midfielder in our system and I don’t understand people saying drop him to CAM. Watch that fourth goal against Palace. He picks the runners and that’s what your best midfielders do!

{Ed001's Note - he is not a midfielder.}

12.) 28 Jun 2020 13:26:23
Hi Ed, do Liverpool hold an interest in Ndombele, or are you being hypothetical? Thanks AH.

{Ed001's Note - did you not read the original post?}

13.) 28 Jun 2020 13:41:12
I can see you’re replying to the original post, only seeing if you knew of an interest in him or not 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - if you can see the original post, then you don't need to ask as it is answered! The question was clearly about who I would like so hypothetical.}

14.) 28 Jun 2020 14:19:27
He might not be a midfielder in the books but he does what a top end CAM does for a team!

15.) 28 Jun 2020 14:31:39
Though I’m not 100% sold on Ndombele, it is also true that he was well thought of at Lyon, he worked hard, had a good range of passing, was always hard to knock off the ball and happy to stick his foot in and tackle and we also know that Mourinho could start an argument in an empty room, so it’s very likely that Klopp could get him firing on all cylinders. I’d not be unhappy to see him join as it just seems that Spurs wasn’t the right move, though it’s hard to see where he’d fit in unless we were selling Keita?

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath about a move to Liverpool.}

16.) 28 Jun 2020 14:40:33
Not going to either Ed. I think it’s clear that If there is money (which I don’t think there is), it’s going on areas we’re desperately short in, and midfield is not an are we’re short in!



27 Jun 2020 15:41:49
ed001 is there any plans to bring in a back up left back or do you think Larouci or Lewis could be up for the job, Like Williams at right back good thing is ed they might get a bit of a chance in the last 7 games. Is there a young left footed cb that can cover lb out there ed that could do both jobs if Lovren leaves.


{Ed001's Note - Liverpool are interested in a centre back most of all, Larouci is still seen as having potential and looks like to get more games next season, as things stand. Lewis is expected to go on loan.}

1.) 27 Jun 2020 16:19:21
From the admittedly little I've seen of them, I'd have thought Lewis was the better prospect, and he'd be the one to get more game time with us. I suppose it's still good that he'd be getting regular first-team experience under his belt though if he's going out on loan, rather than just sitting on our bench.

2.) 27 Jun 2020 16:25:35
I believe you mentioned blackpool as a potential destination for next season.

3.) 27 Jun 2020 16:48:33
Larouci really needs to up his game, IMO cos from the little I have seen of him, he is going to need a tonne of work done on him to make it. Just my take.

4.) 27 Jun 2020 17:21:09
Would anyone take jamal Lewis from Norwich? As a fellow northern Ireland man I'd be interested to know opinions.

5.) 27 Jun 2020 17:29:30
Anyone know how young Gallagher is doing?

6.) 28 Jun 2020 01:58:24
He only has one goal and no assists, I'd prefer Nuno Tavares from Benfica, looks a talent, not sure how much he would cost.

7.) 28 Jun 2020 02:12:06
Singing wonderwall.

8.) 28 Jun 2020 03:18:45
Euro - yes if we didn't have robbo.

9.) 28 Jun 2020 03:59:55
Larouci looks terrible whenever I have seen him play. Doesn't cross the ball at all and always cuts in everytime. Looks weak defensively as well.
I'd rather give Hoever a go at LB as he is one kid who will definitely make it big with us. Looks very assured and seems to know what he is doing on the pitch. The only problem being he is right footed.

At 29 would not see that same age as Henderson and Gini if they did sign a midfielder am sure they would want a younger player.

1985mikey1985 I don't get how you can say Cantwell is Better than Jones his 3 years older. Cantwell from what I have seen is ok but nothing special. Jones for just turning 19 looks like he could be a real player but only time will tell.

Thanks Ed should not be as bad this year hopefully. Ed do agents get big fees of clubs for renewing contracts. I would hope that now we are proven winners over the last 2 seasons players should want to come more with the football we are playing and the last 2 trophies we have won.


{Ed002's Note - There are no significant fees for renewing contracts. Players will come but others need to leave to make space and a close watch needs to be kept on the Home Grown quota.}

ed002 I know funds are tied up in transfer from before how long is it till the likes of VVD and Alisson are payed for. And have we stopped paying stupid agent fees yet or are will still doing that with transfers . cheers ed.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool topped the table for agents fees again for February 1, 2019, and January 31, 2020 - more than £100M in three years.}

ed002 I don't see that happening but Origi never seem to play down the middle anyway I think Salah and Mane play down the middle more. And by what I have seen so far ed it looks like Minamino might play the Bobby role as back up. I don't think Traore fits are team as he seem right winger the goes down the wing to cross rather than cutting inside like Mane and Salah and will seem to be in the way of Trent. Timo would have been the right type of forward ed from the left of down the middle and would fit are system better.


{Ed002's Note - Origi has played on the left or as a striker.}

ed002 how much do you think we would want or get for Grujic shaqiri and Wilson. I think out of the players we would let go they are the 3 we would get most for.


{Ed002's Note - I don’ know - perhaps £45.2M - but that doesn’t give that much to spend.}

Jk23 I would like an upgrade on Origi but keeping him for one more year and letting Brewster have a full season on loan might be the best option. I think a CB and a left back cover are needed more than anything would like Jamal Lewis from Norwich if they go down that would be great cover for both full backs with Williams at right back. We need a cb as matip is injured far to much and Lovren just can't be trusted as he just seem to make the same mistakes every time he plays.

I thought we played at about 70% last night its not going to be long till next season starts can’t see players flying into challenges in the last 6 games as well. I think it’s just about keeping the players ticking over now there will be about 5/ 6 week gap between the end of are season and the start of the new one so a 2/ 3 week break then straight back into training so the last 6 games are just about Preparation for next season.

Ed002 is there any young left footed cab that can cover left back out there like Gomez does at right back not that he will now so much with Williams coming into the team more.


{Ed002's Note - Evan N'dicka, Lucas Hernandez and Malang Sarr spring to mind.}

Ed002 said yesterday we have to pay £25m back in the money no fans in the ground for the last 5 games don’t know how much that has cost us and we don’t know how many games of next season will have no fans that and the extra cost of playing the games that must be close to your 2 £50m players there. Only seen Chelsea and psg spend up to now. And Ed002 will know better than me but have Chelsea not just received the Morata money so that is time payed for. But I bet now everybody will wait to see what happens with transfers some of the top players at smaller clubs might have to go to help them balance the books.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have money from the sales of a number of players that can be used, including Hazard, Morata and those already agreed to move this summer.}
