Ed002 . is it true we're looking at raphinha of Leeds and throwing taki in the mix aswell as a few Bob? I hope it's true as I honestly believe this guy is class. 🤞.


{Ed002's Note - Raphinha (RW) PSG were looking to Raphinha as one of their list of potential Mbappe replacements and he remains of interest to Bayern Munich, but interest would be dependent on a departure and they have not spoken with Leeds, only his agent. Interest of Liverpool would only be as an option to replace Salah and again they have not spoken with Leeds. Barcelona are in talks and will push and may well be the victor as Deco is working with his old club to see through the transfer. Chelsea have watched Raphinha as they are looking to change wide players but an offer seems most unlikely. Leeds will look to resist but if a really good offer were made from any leading club then the player would likely be interested in a move.

Taki Minamino (RW/AM) Leeds remain concerned about when they lose Raphinha, and have asked about the about the availability of Minamino and Liverpool will perhaps be open to a summer sale. I am not aware of any approach from Monaco but I am aware that they fear Aleksandr Golovin could be tempted away - he may well provide an option, but I am not sure.}

Cheers Ed. very informative as always … 👍👍.



28 Jan 2022 08:08:01
Morning ed002 . Has anything new come to light about diaz? Some reporter who's supposedly ITK has said we have made a very good offer for his services. The reporter is pipe siera 🤷🤷.


{Ed002's Note - I understand an offer has been made.}

1.) 28 Jan 2022 11:06:38
Ed02 has told it! omg it's really happening!

2.) 28 Jan 2022 11:20:37
If Ornstein and Ed002 say it’s on. Then it’s on.

3.) 28 Jan 2022 11:24:03
Medical arranged for Argentina apparently on Saturday.

4.) 28 Jan 2022 11:54:04
Not to be the party pooper. Ed002 said an offer has been made. He didn't say it has been accepted! ED002 do you have any view if the offer made is acceptable? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Porto have not said anything that I am aware of but one of three player representatives involved has said something which means agreement can be reached.}

5.) 28 Jan 2022 12:35:22
Allegedly, he has agreed to personal terms (just over £100k per week and a long term contract until 2027) - the process now is crossing I's and dotting T's before the medical tomorrow. Source: Pedro Sepúlveda.



26 Jan 2022 16:37:57
Ed002 it's being reported that we've made contact with Dybala . any information on this matet or is it just click bait?


{Ed002's Note - Dybala will be available as a Free Agent in the summer if a new contract is not agreed. Liverpool can speak with him now and make a proposal although there may be lingering concerns over injuries although that may have eased. For me, a very good player but getting older and very expensive and I would have thought Liverpool may look toward the future.}

1.) 26 Jan 2022 20:11:37
Hi Ed002. Who would be a good, but younger alternative to Dybala, and still within the financial restrictions Liverpool needs to work around. Dybala on a free agent doesn't soumd to bad, but I know transfer fees and huge salary demands adds up.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool should be looking to the future with players like Julian Alvarez or Dejan Kulusevski and not to players who are struggling with persistant injury issues and will be looking for a huge financial deal.}

2.) 27 Jan 2022 02:03:19
Think he would take a huge signing on fee and be in big wages also.
Out of interest Ed. If we was to sign a free transfer player. Would his signing on fee come out if the transfer budget or would it be accountable as a wages outlay?

{Ed002's Note - There is no "transfer budget" as such.}

3.) 27 Jan 2022 08:17:52
Doesn’t suit Klopps pressing style. Tends to amble in and out of games with flashes of brilliance. Nothing to see here IMO.

4.) 27 Jan 2022 12:51:16
Both cracking players Ed002. Apparently Alvarez signed for Man City yesterday, 26Jan.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I understand.}

5.) 27 Jan 2022 15:17:49
Can’t believe you missed the Alvarez ‘transfer’ 002 😬😂.

{Ed002's Note - I didn't miss it - thiose are the players Liverpool should be looking at but afterer signing Kounde and Mbappe the money might be limited.}



09 Jan 2022 16:40:05
Ed002 is it true there's a couple of clubs talking to Liverpool about buying Neco Williams? You heard anything? I got to be honest I think he's a cracking little player just a shame he's in Trent's position and will be second fiddle most his career if he did stay. will be good to see him find a club where he's a regular as he will thrive I reckon.


{Ed002's Note - Not as far as I am aware - interest has been shown by one side and it is clear that he has not clear future path at Liverpool and wants to move on. As long as the price asked is reasonable then perhaps the summer will see him move on.}



03 Jan 2022 17:44:35
Eds002 is it true we're close to signing Todd cantwell?


{Ed002's Note - I know there has been a discussion with another PL side but I suspect if Liverpool interest has returned then it will be driven by cost as he would be cheaper than other options. It is difficult to see why Liverpool would look to such a player at this time.}

1.) 03 Jan 2022 18:19:17
“ I suspect if Liverpool interest has returned then it will be driven by cost as he would be cheaper than other options. It is difficult to see why Liverpool would look to such a player at this time. ”

Yep. That just about sums it up nicely.

2.) 03 Jan 2022 18:21:17
The only reason I think we might sign him is that he’s homegrown. but this signing doesn’t fill me with much confidence if I’m honest 🥴.

3.) 03 Jan 2022 18:22:29
Not saying its true VVVV but cheaper doesn't necessarily rubbish.

4.) 03 Jan 2022 18:48:22
Spot on OMM - Robbo, Timiskas.

5.) 03 Jan 2022 18:58:38
Where has this rumour come from? I've not seen or heard it anywhere.

6.) 03 Jan 2022 19:08:38
There are bargains to be had occasionally, but they’re few and far between and this lad isn’t one of them.

I can’t see what he adds? Not a prolific scorer, not tremendously skilful, not particularly quick, just a very ordinary run of the mill English footballer. If he wasn’t English we wouldn’t even look at him.

He’s hardly been a stand out player this season and didn’t really set the world alight the last time Norwich were in the premier league. The fact that he’s been dropped by the manager for his poor attitude says enough.

7.) 03 Jan 2022 19:23:21
To be fair VVVV it's hard to argue with your points. Only thing I'll counter with is that they are always struggling and it's their defenders that seem to get the praise. Godfrey, Aaron's and Lewis etc. As for his attitude Sadio had them problems too. Might just need a change of scenery to reinvigorate himself.

8.) 03 Jan 2022 20:21:59
Is it just me but there seems to be so many experts on here regarding the finances of LFC and FSG. Not so long ago we bought VVD and AB for world record prices, who'd have thought and LFC are extending the Anfield Rd stand, which will have to be paid in stage payments. Not a sign of penury. Okay C.V. hit hard but no fan knows at this stage what the Nike deal is realising. Have the fans been buying kits for the family with their spare cash because they couldn't go to pubs etc.

VVVV some of your posts make me want to slit my throat, they are so depressing. You state as facts, that only a senior member of the organisation would know!

9.) 03 Jan 2022 20:43:45
Wirralean what did he say he that made you think it was depressing. He was simply stating facts. That an average footballer is average. Like he says, he has been dropped by Norwich. BY NORWICH.

10.) 03 Jan 2022 21:05:37
Alk rhe above reminds me I read similar, many times, when wini, Robertson, Ox, even Mane and many others were signed.
Perhaps Klopp knows one or two things more than us? Has not earned the benefit of the doubt fir these kind if deals?

{Ed0666's Note - whose wini?

11.) 03 Jan 2022 21:12:30
VVVV can you name an average player that Liverpool have bought in the past three seasons purely because the player was cheap.

I suppose The lad from Preston could be considered but that was more of a stop gap signing because we had lost our first four CB choices. Other than that I’m open to suggestions.

12.) 04 Jan 2022 03:06:08
I don't pretend to know the financial ins and outs, but I feel like if we are going to be adding anyone in January, unless it is someone who will start then I think we should only expect cheaper options. The club won't, and nor should they, splash cash on what will effectively be squad players.

13.) 04 Jan 2022 05:29:23
I would avoid him in a heartbeat. Terrible attitude by all accounts and has downed tools multiple times for Norwich. He isn't any better than the homegrown player we already have at the club and coming through.

14.) 04 Jan 2022 07:09:34
I’m going to go against the green here and say when ever I’ve watched cantwell his running with the ball has impressed me
Sure he’s no worldly
But he would have his uses within our squad especially when naby and Thiago can’t stay fit Henderson and Milner should never play in the same midfield ever
Thought Milner had a decent game against Chelsea Henderson was not so good
Cantwell very similar to Curtis Jones but I feel the club may look to play Jones from the left in the absence of mane
Wouldn’t be disappointed with cantwell but on the same hand not overjoyed

Could come in and do a job IMO.

15.) 04 Jan 2022 09:25:59
@dhfc, I'm more concerned you thought milner had a decent game against Chelsea.

16.) 04 Jan 2022 09:25:59
@dhfc, I'm more concerned you thought milner had a decent game against Chelsea.

17.) 04 Jan 2022 09:35:29
We have :

GK: Ali, Kelleher, Adrian, Pitulagi

RB: TAA, Neco, Bradley

LB: Robbo, Tsimikas, Beck

CB: VVD, Konate, Matip, Gomez, Phillips

Mid: Hendo, Fabs, Thiago, Ox, Keita, Millie, Curtis, Elliot, Morton

Att: Mo, Sadio, Bobby, Diogo, Div, Taki

Plus a number of kids not listed who have made their debuts over the past 18 - 24 months.

Of course there are players there who can double up as midfielders or attackers.

Given that we have 29 players listed above and not much money to waste on overpriced back-up players who a) don’t represent value for money and b) would probably hinder / block the path of our younger players why would we be in a rush to buy?

Ed's any news on jota being fit for Sunday as I've heard firminho is out but not heard anything about diogo? Als not Liverpool related but did anyone see renato Sanchez against Chelsea in midweek? The guy looked the dogs dangly's if I'm honest lol 😜👍.


{Ed001's Note - late fitness test.}

1.) 26 Feb 2022 08:48:36
Sanches looked good but also like he has a massive attitude problem. Throwing his hands up whenever he didn’t get the ball etc. big fish small pond comes to mind. Physically though he is amazing. Can see why he’s injured so often, so explosive.

2.) 26 Feb 2022 14:29:04
Sanches is rubbish, all very well looking busy when you’re on the ball, but when he hasn’t got it he is all at sea. His positioning and reading of the game is poor, add to that the fact he’s literally made out of crisps and misses nearly half a season through one injury or another, he’d be a huge waste of money and too much of a risk. We’ve enough players who are injury prone midfield, thanks. At best he’s an injury prone Poundland Edgar Davids.



15 Sep 2021 07:01:19
Who starts tonight instead of Elliot lads. I'm thinking team will be. ally


{Ed0666's Note - Keita maybe? And hendo plays on the right keita on the left?

1.) 15 Sep 2021 07:39:11
Nah, I want Thiago to get a proper run of games. His season got fuxed last season. You can chop and change the other position but our starting 2 should be Fab and Thiago.

2.) 15 Sep 2021 08:22:59
Trent, Konate, Virg, Robbo
Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago
Salah, Jota, Mane

I think we should manage Matip and Virgil's game time. I'd start Virgil and Konate. Gomez on at 60 minutes for Van Dijk if we're winning. Pretty sure we still get 5 subs in the CL. If so oher 4 i'd like to see off the bench are Tsimikas, Jones, Keita and Minamino.

3.) 15 Sep 2021 09:00:08
Anyone verse at this early stage of the season worries thst our front 3 have to play 3 games every week as we have next to no other options up there?

4.) 15 Sep 2021 09:13:26
Need a win tonight to get some momentum with such a tough group. Start strongest team, although I wouldn’t mind seeing Tsimi getting another start. Shame Klopp dropped him after such a good start when Robbo doesn’t seem quite up to speed yet. Would be nice to see Konate/ Gomez alongside Virgil to give Matip a rest before he breaks something.

5.) 15 Sep 2021 09:23:54
Tsimikas didn't deserve dropped, hope to see him tonight!

6.) 15 Sep 2021 09:25:19
My preference would be for Gomez to start and Konate off the bench, fitness dependant. I feel Gomez has earned his starting place over the years, Konate needs to deserve his spot.

7.) 15 Sep 2021 09:45:08
MK that’s the starting line up I would go for.

8.) 15 Sep 2021 11:07:02
I'd go with MK's lineup, too.

9.) 15 Sep 2021 11:46:57
I would think Kostas would start over Robbo, Robbo doesn’t seem quite up to speed yet and Kostas is a good rotation option. Midfield I would start Hendo, fab and Thiago and look to bring on a change or two here during the game to give players a rest and other players minutes.

10.) 15 Sep 2021 11:49:06
I'd go with Klopp's lineup!

11.) 15 Sep 2021 11:54:54
Not too fussed either way but i’d like to see Jones, Tsimikas and Konate get game time, probably Ox as well because i think we’ll need him to fill in a lot over the coming months.

12.) 15 Sep 2021 12:01:59
cant start keita against decent oppostion don't want another demolition like real madrid or aston villa he doesn't run around. can't start game with ten men.

13.) 15 Sep 2021 13:27:34
Your right Nath, Naby Keita was the ENTIRE reason we lost them games as the other 10 were terrific! my God.

14.) 15 Sep 2021 14:51:42
Klopp rotated a fair bit last group stage could be a few again tonight.

15.) 15 Sep 2021 19:11:48
Got to be honest I did not see origi starting tonight. but can see the sense in vvd on bench as this guy needs to be managed carefully after the injury he sustained. and he’s been away with Holland also and had injury issues away with them to. would of liked to see Thiago get a good run tho and bit disappointed he’s not starting tonight. hopefully kieta steps up to mark 👍👍🍻.

16.) 15 Sep 2021 23:08:23
Keita did OK, neat and tidy and did his bit.
Plenty of scope for more to come, but he didn't hide tonight.

{Ed0666's Note - he’s the only player that can in front of 48,000 people



13 Sep 2021 13:38:46
Get well soon Harvey lad ynwa. Really gutted for the kid and hopefully it will be a good quick recovery. I think Jones. kieta. ox. need to step up and show they have a future at the club because for me Elliot was in front of all 3 of them . Be interesting to see who shows up and impresses out of the 3 of them? my money is on Jones . 👍👍🙌.


1.) 13 Sep 2021 14:18:40
Harvey took his chance and ran with it, some others have the chance to do the same now whilst he’s away.

2.) 13 Sep 2021 14:32:34
What makes you think Jones does not have a future at the club?

3.) 13 Sep 2021 15:12:20
Really boggles my mind if one player does well it immediately means the other player doesn't have a future especially when it comes to young players.

4.) 13 Sep 2021 15:27:56
I don't think hmasson2 is saying that Curtis doesn't have a future at the club. Just that he is yet to prove that he does, which is fair.

5.) 13 Sep 2021 18:57:42
Yes I’m not saying Curtis doesn’t have a future at the club. BUT with Elliot now out for several months and I believe that he was ahead in the pecking order of the midfielders I’ve mentioned. then there’s an opportunity for Curtis to really show he’s capable of playing in this team for the foreseeable future…Hope he does by the way👍.



31 Aug 2021 18:29:40
Got to say not Liverpool related but Chelsea have had a cracking transfer window. Now they have signed Saul aswell 🙈.




17 Jul 2021 11:24:25
Bissouma and Raphinha and konate and I'm a happy man. I think it is definitely achievable with a couple of sales 🤞🤞.


1.) 17 Jul 2021 13:25:35
It's too hot to sign anyone today.

2.) 17 Jul 2021 13:49:12
It's absolutely sweltering mate. I hope Edwards has air conditioning in his office!

3.) 17 Jul 2021 14:43:58
31c here in Hampshire right now. Going to be 35c tomorrow they reckon.

4.) 17 Jul 2021 14:49:52
Edwards is on holidays. Nothing doing for the next 3 weeks.

5.) 17 Jul 2021 15:18:25
You think we can raise circa 100mil from selling fringe players? I’d say no chance.

I don’t think an out and out winger is needed either as it only blocks Elliot’s game time.

We need a CF who’s capable of playing out wide when needed. Someone like Malen (who may well end up at Dortmund sadly)

6.) 18 Jul 2021 02:21:03
Musialowski also has signed.

We’re 12/ 1 to sign dembele
We’re 6/ 4 joint favourites to sign Nunez
We’re 3/ 1 for raphinha
According to ed002 we’ve no chance with Nunez and raphinha so dembele got to be worth £20 flutter 🤣🤣🤣🤑.

Give Brighton Phillips as a down payment for bissouma in the summer 😉.
