If reports are to be believeed that he is off to Belgium, all the best to Mignolet. He handled himself with class through a very difficult time for himself.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 11:39:29
It's tough being the starter, then losing your place and sitting on the bench for 2 years (first behind Karius then Alisson) . All the best to Migs. YNWA.



10 Mar 2019 17:06:16
Ed, is there any truth that Coutinho is looking for a move to Manchester United or is this just lazy journalism?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what he wants, sorry. But certainly he is one of the players Barcelona want sold this summer.}

1.) 10 Mar 2019 17:52:33
Thank you ed.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 19:13:36
Ed, if you ever have any openings in your rodeo, I'd like to apply.

{Ed002's Note - I'll take note of that.}

3.) 10 Mar 2019 19:29:23
Ed002 why would they be so quick to get rid when they went to the trouble to attain him. Is it financial or another reason.

{Ed002's Note - He is not playing as well as they want and they are willing to cut him lose and take a hit on the funds bringing a replacement in.}

4.) 10 Mar 2019 21:06:18
certainly Liverpool wouldn't be interested, would they?

5.) 10 Mar 2019 23:49:33
No chance Stone mate, not at the price Barcelona would be after.

6.) 10 Mar 2019 23:48:54
Would we want him back after way he left?

7.) 11 Mar 2019 01:23:05
Coutinho can play LW AM RW CM he can rotate with the front three and in the middle. I understand he faked injuries because he wanted his DREAM move but he was doing great with us. apart from that he has friends here in Firmino Moreno and now we have Alisson Fabinho he will feel at home here and he will give us his best years.
Just imagine
Alisson-A. Arnold-Gomez-VanDijk-Robertson-Fabinho-Keita-Coutinho-Salah-Mane-Firmino.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 10:25:47
I think we have moved on as a club and are better off without him. Don't think he works hard enough off the ball and he is a high light player that looks better than he is because of the goals he scores but how many shots does he have but fore one goes in would much prefer are front 3 over him and in the middle ox all day for me. I know he has more ability on the ball than ox but look how hard david silva kevin de bruyne and bernardo silva. Think its time to move on.

9.) 11 Mar 2019 11:24:53
Asensio is apparently available in the summer for £69m apparently, I would much rather we buy him. Amazing player with serious potential, probably cheaper than Countinho (not that I would want to see him back) don't get me wrong, Coutinho was an amazing player for us, but he cooked his goose with the fans over how he acted trying to leave - well he did for me anyway!

{Ed001's Note - is Asensio really amazing?}

10.) 11 Mar 2019 13:17:53
I loved Couts during his time at Liverpool. However, I wouldn't be happy if we were to take him back. I just think for the price we could do better in terms of signing a player that would fit Klopps system. For me, id go all out to sign Son from Spurs. I don't think they'd sell unfortunately. And Levy isn't exactly a dream to deal with either.

11.) 11 Mar 2019 14:17:01
Are you seriously saying you would prefer Son to Coutinho.

We will not be getting him back, but coutinho is a wonderful player. creative and game changing, just what we need in games such as west ham and Leicester.

12.) 11 Mar 2019 15:03:19
We drastically improved when Coutinho left last season. We are currently having one of our best seasons ever. We do not miss him. When we play against deep defences Coutinho is not the answer, we had the same struggles vs this kind of strategy the entire time Coutinho was with us.

13.) 11 Mar 2019 17:04:33
When did we drastically improve after Coutinho left? 1st Jan 2018 we were 3rd in the prem at the end of the season we were 4th. We started to concede less goals due to VVD coming but we didn't score more league goals.

Of course we miss him to some extent. Did you not watch the Man U or the Everton games, this is when he could have made the difference.

14.) 11 Mar 2019 18:39:40
I don't think either will ever happen but, if push came to shove, I would definitely have Son over Coutinho. Coutinho is excellent don't get me wrong, but Son's all round game is superb and he is an absolute grafter. He'd suit out style perfectly as well.

15.) 11 Mar 2019 19:27:02
Coutinho was in and out of games and went missing a lot. Then he would bang a worldie in and all would be forgotten. He really should get more time and space in the Spanish league to do his stuff. So if he's struggling is really a player we would want back for £100 mill plus. No thanks move on don't go back.

16.) 11 Mar 2019 21:36:01
The fee alone make him unobtainable before you consider the other factors, such as how he left, how well we played without him, the cost, his overall salary etc etc.

We should move on, he’s not worth the £100 million being mentioned for me. For that we could sign both Fekir and Brandt with change to spare.

17.) 12 Mar 2019 05:51:11
For the crazy amount of money for buying Countinho, I predict he will just end up staying at Barcelona for maybe 2 more seasons. Luckily he would have some game time but definitely the the star player of them. And finally he would end up like Cesc Fabregas, leaving there cheap to Italy maybe?

What do you think about my prediction Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him sold and will drop the price if they need to - selling him obviously saves them money on payments to Liverpool.}

18.) 12 Mar 2019 22:42:44
So we get kicked twice then? Losing him to Barcelona and now losing what I would imagine would be a significant chunk of his transfer fee because they want to sell him. I know we don’t like to talk money but that’s kind of kicking us twice - why would anyone want him back (unless it’s so we can sell him again and get paid something?! )

19.) 14 Mar 2019 03:29:34
Maybe we can do something to negotiate a good deal involving the payments left.

20.) 16 Mar 2019 21:07:02
That’s confusing, why would it save them money on payments to us? Surely any money owed has to be honoured regardless of whether he is there or not? Or are we talking about add ons for appearances, etc?

{Ed002's Note - We are talking about a large sum of money that would be due if he stayed, played and Barcelona were successful. I have explained the structure of the fee before. Sadly many of the fans don’t believe it.}



02 Nov 2018 18:19:38
Ed002, is there any potential impact to the recent allegations against PSG and Man City. I know not Liverpool related, don't beat me up to much.


{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what allegations have been made but if it relates back to the 12/13 era it would be perhaps a case of UEFA finding their new turbo-charged feet in terms of handing out penalties. I have seen several posts about the general theme, if it is no more than bitching about it really being much worse than it was, that may well be truce. They got abrupt punishment that perhaps could have been more serious, but someone will need to give me a pointer to the specifics for me to rationally comment.}}

1.) 02 Nov 2018 23:27:17
I read Psg should sell mbappe and neymar because the money used for them wasn’t financially fair?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am not sure what is meant by that.}

2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:13
I believe the allegations were that Infantino met with the Qatari’s and said if they buy PSG he will overlook FFP in their favour and ensure that they got to host the 2022 World Cup. There was something similar to do with Man City but I’m not sure of the full details of that.

{Ed002's Note - That sounds like nonsense from Twitter. Regardless, that is all totally untrue.}

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:32:32
Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks Ed002. It was football leaks that broke the story and I have no idea how reliable they are.

{Ed002's Note - They have seemingly got some information that dates between 2014 and recently which is why it is muddled.



11 Jun 2018 23:26:31
Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}

8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.

9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?

10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}

13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.

14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}

16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}

17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}

18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Off for a Caribbean holiday. That won't stop me from checking this site daily. Have a great week and weekend everyone!


{Ed002's Note - Enjoy yourself.}

1.) 22 Jun 2022 08:57:19
This should not have been allowed to be posted eds. I feel like crap right now?

Have an awesome time stone!

2.) 22 Jun 2022 09:53:51
Stone was it a choice between filing the car up or going the Caribbean.

Great choice and enjoy.

3.) 22 Jun 2022 10:37:46
Come on Ed’s, surely Stone baiting us with he’s off to Caribbean is grounds for being banned off the site, at least to keep morale up ha ha. Enjoy your holiday, not a bit jealous, as I change my name to Pinocchio.

4.) 22 Jun 2022 11:04:43
I’m jealous!

5.) 22 Jun 2022 13:00:23
I’ll post some pictures.

6.) 22 Jun 2022 13:24:05
Nearest I’ll get to that is giving up Curried Beans for a week.

7.) 22 Jun 2022 14:03:08
Hey Stone. Where in the Caribbean. I love the beaches in Dom Rep. I am also very jealous.

8.) 22 Jun 2022 15:42:18
Preferably not pictures of you in your budgie smugglers Stone, though I'm sure Ed025 would be delighted with that.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not saying anything!

9.) 22 Jun 2022 21:35:59
I still have the negatives ?.

10.) 22 Jun 2022 21:36:56
We’re in St. John.



18 Jun 2022 18:07:15
Ed002, any chance of a sharkopod anytime soon?


{Ed002's Note - Not anymore.}

1.) 18 Jun 2022 19:14:48
The Sharkopods were amazing. Thanks for doing them. If you ever wanted to put out a pod of music, I'm all ears.
Matt in FL.

{Ed002's Note - I would do one but am not taking abuse.}

2.) 18 Jun 2022 20:50:59
No wonder macca ****ed off! Ed2 posts what he knows and it’s far more than anyone of us is going know, if you don’t like what he says don’t give him abuse just take it, it’s a rumours page so it’s not all gospel, just appreciate people taking time out of their own lives to feed you information of which they believe at the time to be true and their opinion, same as what I do when I read all the other posts. Have a good evening.

3.) 18 Jun 2022 21:01:35
I don't understand why people would abuse any of the Eds. Most do this for FREE and volunteer their time to give us the best information that they can. These situations are fluid and can change minute to minute. Stop being keyboard warriors and appreciate the information that we get from the Eds.

4.) 18 Jun 2022 21:05:40
Seriously lad's it's like some of you want the Ed's to get their information wrong. As Frazer said they tell us what they know as soon as they know it and if for some reason they may get a tiny piece of their free and shared information wrong you are all over them. Find me a better site with free and reliable information and I'll show you a copy of this site.
Respect the Ed's lad's YNWA.

5.) 18 Jun 2022 20:23:24
Can posters stop abusing Edd's. They all do a great job. It's not warranted and spoils it for the other good poofters.

{Ed0666's Note - I welcome the abuse as it’s a form of attention and my wife doesn't give me any do I have to get it in other ways!

6.) 18 Jun 2022 20:23:44
Erm that should have said posters.

7.) 18 Jun 2022 21:19:14
I'm a good poofter??.

8.) 18 Jun 2022 21:21:12
Just abuse ed666 then even if he didn’t comment or upset u!

{Ed002's Note - No doubt Ed666 will be dealing with everything here from now on.}

9.) 18 Jun 2022 21:15:29
666 lol matey.

{Ed0666's Note - ?

10.) 18 Jun 2022 21:15:41
I'd be all for Ed001 blocking accounts of abusers. Banter is one thing, abuse is something totally different. Don't come back at me with free speech either. Abuse should not be a part of this forum especially at people who volunteer their time.

{Ed0666's Note - There’s abuse and then there’s abuse. Some of the stuff that gets deleted I’d post if it was funny or intelligent but it’s mostly moronic and petty. Saying that I try and post as much of my abuse as I can because I honestly don’t care what people think of me but q some of the stuff directed at Ed’s 002 in particular is uncalled for especially as he gives up his precious time free of charge to entertain the masses

11.) 18 Jun 2022 21:59:08
Spot on stone, it's stupid and uncalled for. Ed2 is a legend on here, anybody firing abuse should be banned.

12.) 18 Jun 2022 22:10:24
Bear in mind there's probably a load more crap submitted that we don't see cos the Eds don't let it onto the site.

13.) 18 Jun 2022 23:38:17
Name and shame the d*ckheads that are abusing the Ed's. Let us abuse the fools back for you. Sometimes 2 wrongs can make a right.

{Ed001's Note - that's what they want though mate, to start an argument as the only thing that happens then is we all get dragged down to their level.}

14.) 19 Jun 2022 00:13:21
Ed001, that's exactly why you should delete their accounts. There's no place on here for that nonsense. I look at this as a community; family and I look forward to interacting every day. This is the first site I come to every single day, even when on holiday. I understand and appreciate all that the Eds do and it is beyond infuriating that some knobs try to ruin this for everyone. Please do us all a favor and delete those "people's" accounts.

{Ed001's Note - that is what we do but they are clearly sad and lonely individuals as they just keep making new accounts.}

15.) 19 Jun 2022 00:14:04
Exactly Salah. Ed002 and all of the Eds are legends. What they do for us is beyond appreciated.

16.) 18 Jun 2022 21:24:09
Ed006 what's the story with the bin dipper shouts on the Manc page. Does that mean I can refer to them as people without reprimand?

{Ed0666's Note - you really don’t need to stoop to their level mate.

17.) 18 Jun 2022 22:07:22
Exactly Ed0666. Suspend or block those a s s holes from posting. Those mother f u c k e r s are ruining the site for the rest of us who understand and appreciate that information with transfers change literally minute to minute. It isn't fair to the Eds nor is it fair to us who value the site and the free time the Eds volunteer to give us information.

{Ed0666's Note - Eds 002 like everyone on the planet is idiosyncratic. His job isn’t to be nice and caress ego’s. His role on this site which he does free of charge by the way is to provide football transfer titbits which he does extremely well. He gives us lots more insider knowledge on the editors widget which we sometimes aren’t at the liberty to pass on. But what you guys get is better than most ITK journo’s give out and you get it free!

18.) 19 Jun 2022 04:04:23
Every transfer window someone starts abusing Ed002, I don’t blame him for not posting further.

19.) 18 Jun 2022 21:55:57
We can’t abuse Ed025. He supports Everton. He’s suffered enough.

20.) 19 Jun 2022 02:39:58
We’ll Ed066 I think I can speak for most on here that you are all appreciated and hate the abuse that you all have to take.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s all good bro people that abuse clearly aren’t happy in their own lives and you have to be sympathetic to some extent towards them.



05 Jun 2022 22:11:46
So, what's going on with Sadio? is he intentionally trying to sabotage his legacy with Liverpool or is he just not bright? I just don't get it. He really needs better advisors because he is really making an a s s of himself.


1.) 06 Jun 2022 00:04:10
He was joking in a Senegalese way. He said as much after the game. Salah has been throwing the club under the bus with his 1:1 interviews for 18 months now, far more than anything Sadio has said.

2.) 06 Jun 2022 00:10:07
Looks like he's trying to play a game he doesn't know how to play. End up looking the fool.

3.) 06 Jun 2022 02:11:34
Not difficult to see he quickly backtracked after watching how he's comments backfired

Mane is p. ed off coz he's hasn't been offered a new contract and spends lot's of he's time with Diouf which tells you everything.



30 May 2022 20:13:03
I really wish Liverpool would make a run at Rice. In my opinion he is exactly what we need in our midfield.


1.) 30 May 2022 20:25:24
Price tag is humongous and I reckon of Chelsea show interest in the summer he's a cert to choose there.

2.) 30 May 2022 20:31:04
Very much agree, I see him as the natural successor to Hendo, both on and off the pitch. However, I think he is over priced and he is also a massive Chelsea fan and they are rumoured to be in for him.

3.) 30 May 2022 20:52:35
£150m is the price tag, I think we can forget about that one.

4.) 30 May 2022 21:06:20
That signing would set the pulses racing. I don't think I could get my head on the pilau.

5.) 30 May 2022 21:07:35
If we are going to pay big for a midfielder I would prefer one that scores goals.

6.) 30 May 2022 21:13:51
Phillips from Leeds would be a good buy and probably 100 million cheaper.

7.) 30 May 2022 21:31:06
Rice at 100m is madness. As for Phillips, I don’t see what’s extraordinary about him. He’s not better than Thiago nor Fab nor even Hendo when he’s on form. A bit overrated, IMO.

8.) 30 May 2022 22:11:22
Mane is good but what would happen if he got a serious injury?

The ball is in the Fenway court.

At 30 Mane would have to be replaced at some stage anyway.

Time to build for the future.

Expensive to replace? Unless one is lucky and a great player is found on the cheap.

Fenway need to invest for success.

Timo Werner couldn't cut the mustard in the Premier.
Maybe Hyland will be the same for City?

Look to the future with confidence.

9.) 30 May 2022 22:50:12
Phillips is horribly over rated, Kimuraking. th, he can’t defend, he’s as mobile as a breeze block and he moves so slowly it looks like his feet are stuck in tar. His passing is ok, but nothing more than that.

Thankfully it looks like City are taking the bait.

10.) 30 May 2022 23:20:26
I like the lad from Leicester- Dewsbury Hall, I think he will be a top player.

11.) 31 May 2022 01:10:45
I'd be happy to see Rice if it was from a decent sauce.

12.) 31 May 2022 02:10:06
I've been saying it for months now. Declan Rice could be a Roy Keane type of buy for whomever forks out the money. He'll be that important to a team and he would be perfect for us.

13.) 31 May 2022 06:24:47
I was likening Rice to the Kante purchase. Chelsea really got good there.



30 May 2022 18:15:30
When do players report back for pre-season? I hope they get a good break.


1.) 30 May 2022 18:38:49
Looking online our first confirmed pre season game is 12 July so I’d imagine at least a week before that.

Seasons starting earlier as well this season due to World cup.

So, MPH no one can have an opinion that is opposed to yours? I'm sorry, I'll ask for your permission before I post anything or if I can have an opinion. Seriously silly response. You are not the only one entitled to an opinion.

I still think we need to strengthen the midfield. I know we have injuries and we need to give the youngsters some time, but even at full strength I'm not convinced the midfield is strong enough. Maybe I'm wrong, but it has me concerned.

I agree, my fear is United will get their first points off of us. Don't think it will happen, but I don't think it will be as easy as some think.

neither of spurs goals should have stood. there were obvious fouls leading up to both.
