Matheus Nunes - loads of press articles today about him- anything there Ed002? or just the usual noise/.


{Ed002's Note - Matheus Nunes (CM/DM) Manchester City, Newcastle and Spurs have all sent scouts but it has gone no further although Manchester City look like they may make an offer. Manchester United see him a financial more viable Matic replacement than other options. Wolves will look to add him if Neves is sold after losing out on Palhinha. His agent has offered the player to Barcelona, Chelsea and Milan but none have followed up yet - but Chelsea may. Everton interest was rebuffed last summer and whilst it still remains, a move to Everton seems unlikely and Wolves could win out after discussions. Player needs convincing about a move to England. Sporting will be reluctant to let him leave after the departure of Palhina. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool.}

Looks like it's Groundhog Day every day for you Ed002?.

2.) 13 Jul 2022 14:48:27
Thanks Ed, have a good one.

3.) 13 Jul 2022 15:21:29
I think he'd be an amazing solution to our 6/ 8 need. Sounds like everyone and their dog is linked and Sporting will want a serious chunk of change for him. He's exactly what we hope Naby would be.

4.) 13 Jul 2022 17:00:52
Curious that we have a sizable (and possibly increasing) Portuguese speaking contingent - Firmino, Jota, Carvalho, Thiago, Fabinho and Allison.

{Ed0666's Note - I love it…if we can get the cream of Portugal and Brazil coming to play for us because of the easier assimilation then I’m all for it…someone should open a Portuguese restaurant in Liverpool they’ll make a killing. Does nandos count?

5.) 13 Jul 2022 17:42:59
It would ne exciting, for the South African owner.

{Ed0666's Note - Nando’s is South African owned yes but Peri Peri chicken is of Portuguese origin is it not?

6.) 13 Jul 2022 18:12:33
Yes Ed0666 it is South African of Portuguese descent! There was a large Portuguese community in SA, with many coming down from Mozambique as well

Good Portuguese football community too! Very passionate, prone to going over the top sometimes, had many a battle against them in years gone by!

{Ed0666's Note - Those Portuguese are like the Irish they are everywhere ?

7.) 13 Jul 2022 19:26:08
And your point is Ed0666?.

{Ed0666's Note - That the Irish and Portuguese travel far and wide. Didn’t think I needed to elaborate Bazza as it was so self explanatory. But didn’t account for you Bazza my bad ?

8.) 13 Jul 2022 21:32:15
Very true Ed666.

I'm one of those South Africans of Portuguese descent ?

Got to day though, haven't met any Irish folk. ?.

9.) 14 Jul 2022 20:20:43
That's ok Ed0666 I was always the last at everything mate. JLCBM would you like my address mate?.

{Ed0666's Note - you’re Mrs told me you were catergotically not last at EVERYTHING

10.) 14 Jul 2022 21:40:54
Isn't the man that replaced Micheal Edwards, or is one of the senior members of scouting and recruting, didn't he spend time in portugal with national team or the national youth team and he has deep connections with portugese football because of that? I would expect for us to be getting plenty of signings from portugese league in the next couple of years.

11.) 14 Jul 2022 23:17:29
Jeez is she STILL going on about that one time in was in a rush to watch the footie ?.

12.) 15 Jul 2022 06:56:56
Hey Barry.

If the Irish are as straight forward as you, I'm glad I haven't met any ??????

Whatever happened to buying dinner first.

In all seriousness, happy that you are the first Irish person that I have met. even better that you're a fellow Liverpudlian.

13.) 16 Jul 2022 07:05:56
No point hanging about J I always go straight in.

14.) 16 Jul 2022 21:17:54
Is that why your name is Barry IN Louth. ??????.



17 Jun 2021 13:15:49

" Liverpool to hold talks with 22-year old PSV striker Donyell Malen. [Sky Sport]"

Nonsense or is there some truth here?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained for a number of months that Liverpool are keen.}

1.) 17 Jun 2021 14:36:41
If that’s the case I get you can put a strike through Patson Daka 😔.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 15:22:07
Regardless of the fact of who his agent is, no denying he’s one of the brightest talents in European football.

Personally I’d prefer Daka, but can’t argue against Malen being a smart signing.

3.) 17 Jun 2021 15:24:08
Leicester have reportedly bid for Patson Daka.

4.) 17 Jun 2021 17:05:19
To be honest, having not studied either of them in great detail (other than Sofifa or Youtube) they appear to be quite similar - pacy strikers who can also play out wide in a front 3.

One's done really well in the Dutch league, the other in the Austrian.

Prices quoted are not outrageous - Daka appears to be a bit cheaper at £17m vs £25m.

Has anyone seen them play regularly who could add more to the discussion? Which one would be a better fit?

{Ed0666's Note - personally I think Malen would be a better fit as he’s the natural scion to Bobby, has better movement than daka yet both are rapid.

5.) 17 Jun 2021 17:17:30
I don’t see anything on sky sports about this. Is it from a h
Papers / gossip section?

6.) 17 Jun 2021 19:14:52
Ed0666 I do remember Daka giving VVD and Gomez a very hard time in a friendly against RBS, I know it was only a friendly but he stood out a mile.

{Ed0666's Note - honestly mate I’d be happy with either. I like mallen as in my opinion he’d be a more seamless and integrate better to our style of play I think. And if he signed and did well it would annoy Ed 014 as he’s ex arsenal player

7.) 17 Jun 2021 20:06:40
Daka be going to Leicester.

8.) 17 Jun 2021 19:43:51
Ed's any chance that Salah / Mane will be sold this summer or will new contracts be offered instead? How will that game of chess play out, knowing how market traderesque Salah's agent is?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans to sell either.}

9.) 17 Jun 2021 20:33:50
Daka is a more natural replacement for Vardy. He’d suit Leicester more than he would suit us. I would agree with Ed that Malen is more suited to our style of play if JK intended to play him centrally.

Always going to be difficult to find a replacement for Bobby that offers the same link up, although JK may think it’s time for a change up top and to adapt our style.

We need to find a way to beat a low block more next season as that was our downfall for a good few games. Striker will be an important position to get right for that.

10.) 17 Jun 2021 21:17:35
Malen does look a good player and decent value.



27 May 2019 12:54:30
Hi Eds,

Is there any updates on the fitness/ availability of the team for Saturday? Kieta aside, will we be at full strength?


{Ed001's Note - even Keita has a chance.}

1.) 27 May 2019 13:28:52
Hey Ed001, that's great to hear. Thanks for the Prompt reply. Have a good one.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

2.) 27 May 2019 15:21:00
Ed001 - what chance do you give us for the final?

{Ed001's Note - ?}

3.) 27 May 2019 17:46:22
No point risking Keita, I’m sure one of gini or Milner will be on the bench plus ox probably. Even shaqiri if we need a goal. Keita has struggled with little niggles all season, and whilst I’d love for him to be involved, it’s too risky to even bring him on.

4.) 27 May 2019 20:05:17
Are you a doctor/ physio Firmane? I'm assuming you work for the club do you?

5.) 27 May 2019 22:19:58
Risky? If he gets a niggle he can play through it and then rest it on the beach in the Maldives drinking Mai Tais!
All hands to the pump for this game.

6.) 27 May 2019 23:17:50
I’m sorry for having an opinion on this site instanbul! Firstly, my thinking was if he had to come off again, we’d be down a sub. Secondly, the last niggle he got he couldn’t play on, nothing to do with beaches or what not, we need players who are 100% on the pitch. If spurs want to play Kane at 75% fine, but we have Gini Milner hendo Fabinho all pushing to start, with ox and shaqiri capable off the bench if needed.

Nothing against Keita one bit, he played great at the end of the season, but two weeks ago he couldn’t walk on it. why risk it?

7.) 28 May 2019 09:54:03
Sorry Firmane mate I meant no offence. Purely that if he’s on the bench it means that he’s been passed fit by the medical staff so if he’s the best man to come on then we should use him. No point being cautious in the last and biggest game of the season.
Even if he was 100% fit I wouldn’t see him starting this game. I don’t think Klopp trusts him completely defensively as much as say Hendo, Wiji or Milner.

8.) 28 May 2019 12:03:33
I second beckers post firmane, my reply was rather abrupt and I apologise for that. If he's fit and available it would be klopps decision wouldn't it.



12 May 2014 15:07:24
Hi Eds,

Is it true that Southampton are interested Enrique? If so, could we use that as a carrot for making a bid for Shaw as well or would he be used in the Lallana deal. If we went after Shaw, in your opinion, would we hold the advantage over Utd?


{Ed002's Note - Shaw doesn't figure in any of this.}



30 Dec 2013 15:39:22
Hi Eds,

Can you give us some idea of which players or positions we are actively looking at in January.


{Ed001's Note - full backs, wingers and central midfield.}

1.) 30 Dec 2013 16:27:16
Montoya/Bertrand, Salah and Rackitic then

2.) Both attacking and defensive or what type of midfielder ed

{Ed001's Note - seems to be a creative player, such as Rakitic, we are hunting for the midfield.}

3.) Thanks oddly I was think defensive midfielder but i'm happy

4.) Agyemang-Badu, Rakitic, Salah and Montoya

Anyone else notice that Mane had a big sour head on him after we won? He looked like he was just told his lottery numbers came in but he lost the ticket.


{Ed014's Note - he does seem a right miserable sod most of the time

1.) 01 Mar 2022 06:28:45
Absolute tosh, literally tons of videos of him dancing and celebrating, hugging Henderson while getting his medal.
That’s the issue with fans today, look for negatives when they should be celebrating.

2.) 01 Mar 2022 08:00:38
I think he was staying away from champagne.

3.) 01 Mar 2022 08:27:19
Triangle that was my point yesterday loads of people say he was not in the videos or photos in the Dressing room but there was other players and staff not there but nobody pointed them out.
Yeah he might have had a sulk when he got taken off so what what forward would have wanted to be taken off am sure if Salah had have gone off he would have acted the same.

4.) 01 Mar 2022 09:55:36
Mane like Salah is Muslim any form of Alcohol is prohibited . even Salah wasn't involved too much in the celebration like Mane. But seems every action of mane is judged now after Diaz purchase lol.

5.) 01 Mar 2022 10:19:36
The Champagne was non alcoholic.

6.) 01 Mar 2022 10:50:17
I believe he was both avoiding the alcohol during the celebrations, but in the dressing room it was my understanding he had to go pray perhaps?

7.) 01 Mar 2022 11:08:51
I really really don't get this. Liverpool won the league cup final after taking part in perhaps the best 0-0 ever and because Sadio isn't doing cartwheels all over the place it's become a thread. This is if I'm not mistaken a"Banter/ Rumours" site not a"Because a player isn't enjoining themselves then we have to question it"site🤦.

8.) 01 Mar 2022 12:11:43
Well said Barry. Enjoy the win in what as you rightly said was one of the best 0-0 draws in memory. Both teams deserve a lot of credit. But we won.

9.) 01 Mar 2022 12:16:04
players regularly get pulled in for random drug tests straight after games, meaning they miss the initial celebrations etc. The words mountain and mole hill come to mind.

10.) 01 Mar 2022 12:19:03
Maybe imred but Mane isn't going to risk and damage he's reputation back home just like Salah wasn't involved much.

11.) 01 Mar 2022 12:24:08
Oh wow, what's the matter? Did Sadio not dance or smile enuff for some of you on here? Don't worry, I have a word with him to be sure to celebrate much better next time so as nobody's feelings get hurt.

12.) 01 Mar 2022 12:45:46
Excatly OliRed 👍.

13.) 01 Mar 2022 12:50:58
He was definitely having a bit of a sulk. He walked off during the celebrations in front of the main advert board on the pitch and then went for a pray during the celebrations in the dressing room.

14.) 01 Mar 2022 14:45:21
Ahhh the lack of celebration
There was a time Salah wasn’t celebrating well enough as his smile wasn’t wide enough
So now the issue is with mane.

15.) 01 Mar 2022 15:59:09
I'd have a sour head on if I was given non alcoholic champagne to celebrate with.
Mane might just be pacing himself for the three bigger celebrations this season.
That's a joke, btw; I'm not getting carried away.

16.) 02 Mar 2022 01:09:07
@Barry - well said that man.

We’ve got a cup match tomorrow which will put us into the quarter finals of the FA Cup when we win - we should be focussing on that but it seems the topic of the week is going to be a bit of Sadio bashing. It won’t last long though as it’s likely Naby will play against Norwich.



21 Feb 2022 08:40:01
Mo Salah the 2nd quickest to 150 goals in our history and Sadio equals John Barnes goal tally for the club in 160 fewer games. Soak them in lads, we're lucky a feck.


1.) 21 Feb 2022 10:20:17
Some of us were lucky enough to see Roger Hunt play live too.

2.) 21 Feb 2022 12:04:55
Salah deserves to be spoken about in the same conversation as Hunt, Rush, Dalglish et al as a club legend as he’s been phenomenal as well as having the medals to back it up.

3.) 21 Feb 2022 16:51:45
Some names there.

4.) 22 Feb 2022 18:21:01
Salah is already on the Mount Rushmore of club legends. It’s no longer a debate anymore, in my book.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not sure anyone can debate to the contrary mate. I think this man will only get his dues when he’s gone and we have to make do with a winger/forward that scores circa 15 goals a season.



16 Oct 2021 14:36:49
Remember guys, we're a banter club now like Arsenal, no chance at winning anything this season.




19 Sep 2021 01:49:30

Forget about it, we didn't spend 100 million in the summer, we're definitely a banter clubs now. Definitely not a club that's 15 games unbeaten in the prem, has only conceded 1 goal this season, averaging 3 goals per game, and over 120 shots at goal. Definitely not that sort of team.


1.) 19 Sep 2021 09:23:59
Only 4 games in mate! 3 players out injured now!
We’ve nice stats but early days I’d cool the jets!

2.) 19 Sep 2021 09:42:10
Spoken like a true fan, one of the injured (Bobby) is back in training this week, one has a minor calf injury (Thiago) with JK saying it looked minor after the match and the other one an 18 Year who has played three games for the club.

I’d prefer to go with the 12 wins and 3 draws in our last 15 league games - that isn’t far off the equivalent of half a season unbeaten….

3.) 19 Sep 2021 10:16:16
Jay, you're a typical Dub. We're 5 games in as well.



13 Sep 2021 03:02:47
All my luck to Harvey. Get well soon.

Now to the game, which Fabinho and Thiago completely bossed. I still don't think we've hit out full stride which is a good place to be in which teams like United and Chelsea hitting the ground running. I do think we're going to be very difficult to beat this season if our main back 6 (Allison, VVD, Joel, Trent, Andy and Fab) stay fit.

For all the naysayers about the transfer window we're in pretty good shape. Isn't that 15 games unbeaten since last season now?


1.) 13 Sep 2021 06:32:26
Leeds were incredibly lucky it was only three. They got battered. Great to see. Thiago played really well, Fabinho nearly always does.

2.) 13 Sep 2021 08:07:12
Neville said it perfectly after the game that is the kind of game Thiago was brought in for its frantic and everyone is doing a lot of running just requires someone to put a foot on the ball and calm it down played fantastic yesterday as Keane would say that's his job.

3.) 13 Sep 2021 09:05:24
Spot on, OP. It easily could have been 10 with the way we completely bullied them all game except for the first 10 mins or so where e struggled to get into the game. I knew this was the perfect game for Thiago to shine in cos we need a player who can control the tempo when things get frantic and he did that very well. Fab is back, btw. A way much better perf than the Chelsea game where he was off the pace all game. We are not at full pelt yet which is where you want to be this early so one game at a time and keep it moving.

As for Elliott, not too worried about him. He is a tough cookie and will be well looked after by the club and Klopp himself. We have enuff leader in the DR as well, to help him out esp those who have come thru long spells out due to bad injuries. He'll be okay, IMO.

With all due respect ed0666,we never replaced Barnes, we allowed him to get fat and old in a rubbish team. He was the best player in Europe in the late 80's, we never got a player of that level for a long time after.


{Ed0666's Note - Barnes moved into centre midfield all pudgy and slow and still was the best player in our team

30 May 2022 11:13:57
Ed0666's, there's sensible conclusions we can make though. If Jota can get 21 goals with that type of service from Trent and Robbo, you can only imagine what Lewandowski would get. Trent would be in fecking heaven finally having that type of player to ping balls to.

30 May 2022 10:35:42
Ed0666, his job would be to at least match Salah's output, so we would be asking him to reduce his output by about 15-20%. 20 Prem goals would be an almost guarantee with him.


{Ed0666's Note - there’s no way of knowing for certain mate.

The thing with Virgil is that his positioning is good good that he rarely needs to turn on the after burners but there's also a reason why almost no players have ever got the run on him, he's lightening quick.
