With Chelsea possibly looking to cash in Timo Werner do you think Liverpool would bid and also would we want him? He's not had the best time in the Prem so far but was on Jurgen's list a season or so ago. I know its a bit of an open question but do we think he would thrive under Klopp?

{Ed002's Note - I would very much doubt that Liverpool would be interested in Werner right now.}

1.) 27 Jul 2021 11:08:46
Better than bowen.

{Ed002's Note - But not HG like Bowen and not of interest to Liverpool.}

2.) 27 Jul 2021 11:20:42
Super Smashing Great. come and have a look at what you coulda won!

3.) 27 Jul 2021 13:11:50
Ed speaking about home grown players have we ever been interested in Harvey Barnes? I think him or Bowen would be great signings.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach for Barnes by Liverpol.}

4.) 27 Jul 2021 13:35:58
He didn’t click last year and I’m sure he’s better than that, but I don’t see a top class player in there myself. his passing looks bad to me, especially as he was deployed behind the centre forward often and didn’t offer enough there.

5.) 27 Jul 2021 14:54:31
Timo doesn't look so good around bus parkers, and in tight spaces.

6.) 27 Jul 2021 16:32:45
Not only that Spaceman he couldn't finish a sandwich.

7.) 27 Jul 2021 17:19:43
Werner would fit the profile of players were currently being linked with that’s for sure. Total garbage like the others.

8.) 28 Jul 2021 19:35:37
Actually Werner's metrics thru the middle at Chelsea are very good, he just doesn't play there much. He stinks it up at the wing. He's caught a case of Griezmanatis, second striker that plays off big guy with freedom to roam, has trouble adjusting playing in front 3 in more structured and defined role.

9.) 30 Jul 2021 19:05:45
Mflis, the guy is pants at the moment. No amount of sugar costing can change that. It is up to him to do better or remain dreadful.



28 May 2018 17:53:17
Hi Ed01 is there any news on potential movements/ reshuffling of coaching staff if Buvac probably isn't going to return. And how much of a blow do we think it is if he doesn't return? Who would you like to see in that role? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it does look like Pepjin is going to be asked to take the job, but no clue how it will affect things.}

1.) 28 May 2018 18:40:30
Really excited to have Pepjin back on board. He successfully over saw the transition of Trent and Woodburn from youth players into the first team squad and he deserves huge credit for it in my opinion. Especially with Arnold!

I always saw him as the long term successor to Klopp and was gutted when he left. Hopefully having a more important role as Klopp's number 2, will satisfy him for the 3 or 4 more years we will have Klopp in charge.

2.) 28 May 2018 19:04:32
I’m with you MK. I think he’s an exciting up and coming coach.

3.) 28 May 2018 19:47:29
Does this mean Buvac is leaving permanently then? Kinda hoped Klopp and him would patch things up, for the sake of their friendship if not for anything else.



25 Oct 2017 14:33:16
It's being reported that Klopp and Coutinho's relationship is basically decimated. How true is that Ed's? I know the lad wants gone but he seems to have knuckled down and put in some good performances for us. I personally think he'll go in Jan if not the summer.

{Ed001's Note - he is unhappy at being made to stay. That is all.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 17:31:52
He will definitely go don't know bout anyone else but I can't stand the thought of having players who are plotting too move in our squad it's not healthy, we will b fine without coutihno and emre can we were doing well up too arsenal game without coutihno, it's mane who is very important an Salah, got a feeling mane will b off at end of season he seems that type of character if we ain't doing well.

2.) 25 Oct 2017 17:34:04
I’d love to know where these ‘reports’ come from!

3.) 25 Oct 2017 18:06:46
Doubt Mane will be going anywhere! The backlash would be terrible for FSG selling Coutinho, letting Emre leave on a free (by allowing his contract to run down this far) and then selling Mane on top? Never going to happen.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 18:12:36
Ed has there been any agreement or suggestions of when he will be allowed to leave, be it Jan or the summer? Or nothing at all along those lines.

{Ed001's Note - when a replacement arrives.}

5.) 25 Oct 2017 18:39:51
I am more worried about him wanting too leave, than us wanting too keep him seems every summer we go through something like the coutihno crap.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 18:48:44
He will probably want to leave at some stage, but with his best bud Naby Keita coming in i would hope he wants to stay next season before seeing if we progress or not.

7.) 25 Oct 2017 18:55:01
hailstones that’s what happens when you have good players, other clubs want them. Liverpool are not at the top of the food chain, this happens to every club to a certain extent, only the top 4-5 clubs in Europe don’t have to worry about their best players being taken.

8.) 25 Oct 2017 19:25:02
Thank you for your reply ed much appreciated mate. So if and when we can get a replacement in, he will be allowed to leave probably to Barca, unless they have moved on.

{Ed001's Note - I hope they have and he has no one interested, might teach him a lesson.}

9.) 25 Oct 2017 20:58:14
I no what your saying ed however we are better off selling him imo mate and replacing him. Rafinha don't look a bad player to me either if we can get him as part of the deal.

10.) 25 Oct 2017 20:52:44
Smeg head I suppose I need too accept that players come an go, jus I want them too b as passionate as us supporters cos they should b an want too win every match an that's there only focus, pure wishful thinking!

11.) 26 Oct 2017 07:06:49
Does he notget or want to get that the club needs to get a replacement first?

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't care he just wants to move on.}



02 Mar 2016 09:48:47
Reports in a daily rag that shall forever be used as toilet paper seem to put Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal chief execs in a "secret" meeting in London about a new break away league as the Eds have suggested in the past. From what has been said in the past it would seem Liverpool were never in the mix for the new Pan European League but if this meeting with American Ross - who put together the ICC is to be believed - then we seem to be a front runner. Or is this just someone who is trying to take advantage of UEFA's turmoil with their own idea of a Pan European League to make a lot of money?

{Ed002's Note - This is the original counter proposal backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin which is soon to be tabled that I mentioned before. This is an option to the breakaway as everyone now knows the reality of it. The proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. However, UEFA are now considering yet another proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL.

1.) 02 Mar 2016 10:33:31
Sounds very complicated. I guess it's wait and see now. Thanks for the input Ed.

{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with in great detail here over the past three or four years - search on breakaway.}

2.) 02 Mar 2016 10:44:23
This is scary.

3.) 02 Mar 2016 10:48:00
If this said meeting was regarding a proposal backed by UEFA, then how is the original European super league idea any different to this counter proposal? From what I see, both proposals pitch an idea of an exclusive, pan-European league with a fixed number of teams.

{Ed002's Note - It is radically different in terms of the teams that might be involved, the running of it and the people looking to fund it. UEFA gave this support, as they are doing with another proposal, to save their own asses.}

4.) 02 Mar 2016 11:51:01
HI EDS if this does happen what will happen with the other comps like the F. A. Cup.

{Ed002's Note - It will continue without any clubs who leave the league.}

5.) 02 Mar 2016 12:35:42
To me the scariest thing would be places being fixed for some teams - the top comp should always be earned. As much as I love LFC, imagine if this had happened a few years ago and we had spent the last 5 years getting in over Arsenal who had never won it? Would be a killer for the sport as the competition would be so uneven, there wouldn't even be a point in fighting for the prizes and the whole concept of every team being in it to win it all dies.

6.) 02 Mar 2016 12:36:22
A European Super League also begs the question.
How much more money will the supporters of these teams be screwed for, to watch televised matches?

7.) 02 Mar 2016 14:32:38
I'd be very interested to see this develop further. From the bits of info I've read on here (and I'm not pretending to fully understand it all either) this would allow the most marketable teams in the world - of which we're still one - to better access that revenue. Without other details it's daft to suggest that it'll be a bad idea anyway. Plus anything that gets us back at the top table with Barcelona etc ought to be explored.

{Ed001's Note - god no. It is purely about greed and money. Places in Europe should be earnt by winning, not by virtue of having a big name. It is like the moronic thinking that sees the world stuck with monarchies that offer no use or value but get to be there purely because of who they are, not because they deserve anything. Everyone and everything should earn what they get.}

8.) 02 Mar 2016 16:17:51
Imagine the cost of following your team every other week across Europe, that's just not sustainable. Wouldn't it result in half empty stadiums?

9.) 02 Mar 2016 17:17:37
Would possibly be home fans only accept the few odd away fans who could possibly travel now and again but at least anfield with soon to be over 50 000 fans would be pretty awesome :p.

10.) 02 Mar 2016 18:50:10
I would imagine the away tickets would be supply on demand up to around 10% of the capacity of the stadium or something?

11.) 03 Mar 2016 02:42:02
As the premier league is the currently biggest earning league is there any chance that it's actually in the interest of English teams to remain the premier league? One could imagine that over time the higher earnings generated by premier league teams would increase the wealth gap between themselves and the rest of Europe. What I am asking I suppose that if the premier league is currently "winning" why change anything?
Also agree with the poster above who thinks that attendances would be s concern due to travel costs. I for one hope this never happens.

{Ed001's Note - it would be very much in the interest of the Prem teams in the short term. The issue is whether that is sustainable in the long term or whether a super league would eventually begin to gather up the less avid fans and the new arrivals in the long term.}



03 Jan 2015 09:13:27
Any legs in the Defoe to LFC on loan till the end of the season rumours? Personally I think he'd get us goals. I reckon the player would like the move too and is definitely better than, Borini, Mario and Lambert and would suit our game.

{Ed001's Note - he was offered and it was rejected, at least initially.}

1.) 04 Jan 2015 00:16:27
Luis Muriel! to replace Borini.

12 Oct 2021 11:17:48
Ed02, do you ever think there will be a salary cap in world football? Is there talks with any of the governing bodies to introduce such a thing? It would have to be world wide though because if it wasn't, all the best player would just go elsewhere surely.

{Ed002's Note - There are many countries where there is a salary cap - France for instance. In England there is a recommended limit and so on.

1.) 12 Oct 2021 20:36:57
Salary cap in France? Must be some limit with the wages Messi and Co are getting.

{Ed002's Note - It is a percentage of turnover.}

2.) 13 Oct 2021 10:23:15
We'll never see it, it's bad now but it'll only get worse. Players in 20 years from now, can you imagine what they'll be on? But it is what it is, rediculous in my opinion but we can't change it.



23 Jul 2021 11:08:01
I know not strictly LFC related but is there any reason no "bigger" clubs have tried to sign Heung-Min Son from Spurs? He's just signed a new contract and always thought he was a Klopp type signing, fast, intelligent off the ball too, plus at 29 he's got 3/ 4 years left in the tank at top level. He also has a massive far east marketability too which Im sure clubs look at when singing some players.

{Ed025's Note - hes a great player jim, like bobby only with skill..

1.) 23 Jul 2021 12:36:03
Maybe he's happy there and has no interest or want to move?

2.) 23 Jul 2021 12:46:54
Dont be mean to our Bobby Ed025. He's been off it lately but reckon with us lot back in the ground he'll have another great season. Although if Bobby was to leave, I wonder if we could persuade Son to the North West.

3.) 23 Jul 2021 13:20:53
His new contract has been announced first to please the spurs fans, the next bombshell will be the transfer of Harry kane MBE to man city with the usual spin, we did all we could to keep him, he begged us to let him go, it was too good of a offer to turn down etc.
Son will now become the main man at spurs.

4.) 23 Jul 2021 13:28:09
Bobby's got more skill in his left toe than the whole Everton squad.

{Ed025's Note - he does some nice little flicks pete but maybe like the tin man he doesn,t have a heart, he goes missing in action too much for me mate and has the same impact as an ashtray on a motorbike..

5.) 23 Jul 2021 13:40:08
Son like Bobby? yes with pace. How anyone can say Bobby hasn't got skills i don't no.

{Ed025's Note - oh hes got skills alright stevie...akin to that of the invisible man, he is the epitome of the phrase "busy doing nothing" for me mate but obviously you think differently and thats fine..

6.) 23 Jul 2021 20:29:56
Why bring Everton into it? Don't understand the need to try and make a point by taking shots. Son is 100 times better than Bobby. Anyone saying otherwise needs to take the red tinted blinkers off.

{Ed025's Note - hes top quality OMM..



15 Jun 2021 12:51:56
Ed001, you're usually a great barometer for these things, who would you sign to replace Gini given that we've been linked with several midfielders of late? Pellegrini, Neuhaus etc all look like decent prospects although Italians have never favoured well at Anfield anyway. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - I feel like I am repeating myself over and over but, as Ndidi is unlikely to be an option, it would be Bissouma for me.}

1.) 15 Jun 2021 14:05:39
So you think we should sign Bissouma Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - whatever gave you that idea Bazza? I don't think I have mentioned him before have I??}

2.) 15 Jun 2021 14:47:25
"Ed001 favours Neuhaus - Read all about it"


{Ed001's Note - isn't that an old German pop group from the 80s or something?}

3.) 15 Jun 2021 14:50:14
Ed001, can you just clarify, which Bissouma?

{Ed001's Note - far more fun to leave you guessing whether I mean Yves or could I possibly mean Yves instead or, an outside chance I could actually have been referring to Yves.}

4.) 15 Jun 2021 14:54:08
Mate ed01 has been mentioning him so many times. it's not going to happen hahaha. so hope for Florian neuhaus😂😂😂.

5.) 15 Jun 2021 17:31:42
No tielemans fan ed001? I think we will sign him and move keita.

{Ed001's Note - not really.}

6.) 15 Jun 2021 17:51:43
We're interested in Bissouma? Why am I just being told about this now?

7.) 15 Jun 2021 22:26:16
So to make it clear Ed001, who do you think we will sign?

{Ed001's Note - who do I think? I have no idea, sorry.}



20 Apr 2021 22:07:44
I know you clearly don't want to Ed002 but would you possibly liable yourself if you named the individual who has instigated this and lied to the other clubs?

{Ed002's Note - I have not named the person and how do you think it would be libel if I did?}

1.) 20 Apr 2021 22:24:24
I know you haven’t mate. I was asking if you would possibly liable yourself if you did.

{Ed002's Note - No.}



24 Mar 2021 22:38:19
Ed002 could you possibly explain why UEFA have scrapped the current FFP rules and what they are putting in its place and how it might impact clubs spending. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They are not scrapping the rules, they are making changes as they do every year. It also makes no difference to the Premier League FFP rules. They are going to make gradual changes - but nothing is agreed. One fairly straightforward change is that exclusion from competition will be replaced with larger fines and caps on spending. This doesn't really impact the English sides. UEFA still want a Salary Cap - that won't suit everybody but it should suit many of the English sides. The only way it can work is as a firm % of turnover - currently it exists but is only recommended. For those clubs who generally work within the framework of being self sustaining the changes and any others they agree will not see any change. For clubs who wish to borrow and buy against debt, it will be easier for them (although it is not a good business model). One issue that may cause friction with some Football Associations is that any changes will be written to meet European Law which impact English sides in respect of Work Permits, buying kiddies from Europe etc.. Nothing is being scrapped - it is simply changes coming over the next 2 or 3 years.

1.) 25 Mar 2021 12:16:18
Thanks Ed001. Poor choice of words “scrapped”. Thanks again.

Deependra is right 6Times. Move on from the VVD tackle. The refs have admitted they got it wrong now. It’s just unfortunate. It’s a strange old season. Mike Dean or no Mike Dean it’s a red. Concentrate on supporting our team and as I always say, let’s not give the refs any decisions to make, by scoring more than the opposition. Onwards. Brighton we’re coming for you.

I would say Sarr would only happen if a Salah or Mané were to go. Pointless having 3 players going to AFCON. Jota makes more sense if Brewster and Origi are to leave.

Seen him in the post office by ours in Formby the other day. He looks physically fit. Most of the time I see him with his mates messing around. Couldn’t really comment on his private life.

Or maybe he didn’t expect to walk in to a team of superstars. He left for the money pure and simple. I wish people wouldn’t defend players, it’s almost always about money. It’s a transient game and if I was him I might have done the same if I was offered the same. I wish he had stayed but the contract we offered clearly wasn’t long enough or lucrative enough for him. Up to him to force his way into Poch’s plans or move on loan somewhere. Good luck to the guy.

Im pretty sure he only means there's a chance because the window is still open. When that's the case, there's always a chance. I don't see any ins. Maybe outs though.

We shouldn’t sign players just because others are but we should always improve the squad in every window if finances allow. The owners/ club could be accused of letting other teams catch up to us this window but what can you do? FSG isn’t a bottomless pit of money so we just have to suck it up. I can’t see any more ins now. Sadly but there it is.

Sarr isn't coming, you can bet your house on it. Watford have said it would take a silly money offer to get him. They don't need to sell either. We are skint. Why can't people just believe that's our business done this season. Maybe January if things go to rubbish again but other than that FSG aren't putting any money into transfers as far as I can see. Plus i think our squad is good enough to compete on all fronts IF we stay relatively injury free.

Stop reading Twitter pal. It’ll rot ya brain with crappy rumour after crappy rumour. This is where it’s at and the Eds will let you know if there’s any movement. It’s been that way for years now. Twitter is literally the bog of social media. It’s where rubbish fans go to die.
