Hi Eds,
Do we still hold an interest in Delph from villa? We were strongly linked last summer.

great site and thanks for all your hard work in keeping it ticking along.

{Ed002's Note - No, he signed a new contract.}

Hi just want to say great work with the website!Is there any truth in a Lucas for Kovacic swap deal? I know a little about Kovacic and that he is an exciting talent.I'd love to see him, emre, phillipe and lallana in a diamond in the middle!

{Ed002's Note - Even though he has very recently extended his contract, Inter are willing to sell Kovacic and have spoken with Arsenal, Liverpool and Hertha Berlin. Nikky Vuskan has said there has not been any approach to him from any club at this time and that whilst Inter may be willing to sell the player, Kovacic wants to stay at the club. Barcelona are plotting a deal that will see Alex Song and/or Pedro Rodrigues move to Inter on loan until January and then will be part of a permanent deal for Kovacic.}

Sorry to be a pain but does ed002 or any other eds or indeed fans know if papadopolous (schalke cb) contract is running out this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Kyriakos Papadopoulos' contract runs another year after this. There was previous interest in Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Dortmund but all of these clubs walked away due to cost or injury and they all purchased other centre backs. Recent interest is from Atletico and at Bayer Leverkusen who have him on loan. I don't understand why the Liverpool fans are asking about him again (you are not the first) - perhaps this is something in a newspaper or on Twitter, but I am not aware of interest at this time - particularly from a club that is overrun with centre backs. The club already has well respected young centre backs like Lloyd Jones and Paez who cannot get in to the side in addition to first team centre backs Kolo Touré, Lovren, Sakho, Skrtel and loaned out Coates and Ilori. If Rodgers just wants padding for the squad, it strikes me as an odd choice - but with Kyriakos Papadopoulos you do get a lot of padding for your money. I would be a little surprised if Liverpool were looking at him again, but not totally surprised if Rodgers were to simply spend more money for what appears to be the sake of it. Again, and I don't like talking about "injury history", but Papadopoulos has missed something like 22 games already this season and missed pretty much the whole season a couple of years ago. Again, right now he is out for the next three months. Rightly or wrongly, that would concern a lot of clubs and this has led Atletico to drop their interest. Bayer Leverkusen would like to make the deal permanent but are not going to overspend on the player.}

Cheers ed002, i know you don't like answering questions about random players but i just happen to come accross his name on the lfc website saying we in pole position to sign him on a non transfer fee basis. But yeah i agree unless we have a mass clear out then we shouldn't be signing any more center backs.

{Ed002's Note - Well the LFC website is wrong - his contract doesn't run out until 2016.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 14:31:00
Hi eds, I was reading through where interest lies in players and the players which you have explained are in the positions Rodgers spoke about in the press. I feel apart from Lucas the club doesn't have a top defensive midfielder like Chelsea's Matic, Can for me looks like he would strive more going forward. Khedira is the only one on the list which you mentioned does the club hold interest in any other more defensive minded central players who could be available come the summer.

{Ed002's Note - Not really, the club has Lucas and Emre Can. Samper has been mentioned - I don't know but it is hard to see how he would be ready for the first team at Liverpool. Perhaps next year.}

I see the Benteke rmours are rife again.Supposedly 30M pus Lambert. Have Ed´s heard anything on this ?

{Ed002's Note - No, sorry.}

Believable0 Unbelievable2

26 Apr 2015 13:13:48
Why would Liverpool be in for Benteke? A strong tall striker doesn't really fit into Brendan's model.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 21:40:23
The whole contract situation seems to hav got to sterling at the minute his head doesn't seem in the right place at the minute. I think a new deal in the summer or a transfer needs to be sorted for all parties involved, lfc won't want to loose him for free next summer so we need to make a decision(if one hasn't been made already) come the summer time. Ed002 if i may do you know who seems to be pushing for sterling the most at the minute or who seems most confident of a deal happening??

Believable0 Unbelievable1

26 Apr 2015 09:46:27
The end of the season is fast approaching so a decision will come soon. I'm waiting to see what he can do when he slips on the that England shirt

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 10:42:44
His contract runs till 2017. If we lost him for free it would be the summer after next. I think.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will not let that happen. They should have taken the opportunity to put the contract on the table again when he was on the back foot after the two recent "events" with Sterling and say "sign it or start looking for another club this summer". I know many other clubs who would have used that situation to their advantage.}

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Apr 2015 17:37:58
Hi Eds, read somewhere today that Depay did fly to Manchester but met with Ayre and other LFC representatives in a Manchester Hotel. Any truth to this? Would love to see him in a red shirt! Keep up the good work! Rhys

Believable8 Unbelievable5

26 Apr 2015 16:31:27
Why didn't he fly into Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Depay himself has not met with any teams. It is all nonsense.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 12:21:25
Assuming we don't get a CL spot (still clinging on to that bit of hope), what forwards can we attract to Liverpool that will want to come. Assume we move on Balo and Borini so £20 million max!

{Ed002's Note - Obviously the finances don't work like that, but Liverpool still have a firm interest in Ings and Vietto - plus Origi will be arriving.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Apr 2015 14:00:52
I agree. Maybe i should not have put a figure in as such. With your contacts/opinion would you suggest which would be the better fit for Liverpool. Cheers

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 16:33:03
Ed do you no if Vietto will come or not without CL football?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2015 01:16:54
no need to assume rover , we will be lucky to get 5th spot , BR and the players are half way to the beach , and we have switched off , its going to be Ings , why ? , he costs less .

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Apr 2015 08:59:15
Eds, Do you expect Antonio Candreva to leave Lazio and if so have we ever shown interest?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool onterest in Candreva but Manchester United enquired a while back and were told he was not for sale.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

25 Apr 2015 01:25:54
Hello Eds can you say if this Depay is player that Rodgers wants or the committee for example Markovic mac2! Also would be nice if Sparky could make a comment on the matters regarding the club!

Thanks in advance

{Ed002's Note - Depay is certainly a player Liverpool are interested in, and they have spoken with his representative and with PSV - but I still suspect he will go to Manchester United. Sparky is having his tail fluffed today but will soon be back on line.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

25 Apr 2015 11:14:44
The fact that we are even looking at Depay makes me think that Sterling might be leaving after all?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 11:20:25
unless he really wants to move to liverpool, which i doubt, then i am with ed002 here that he will pick united ahead of us.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Apr 2015 13:16:41
He's been having this secret talks with us that everyone knows about.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2015 20:30:56
Is there any word on where Alex Song will be next season? LFC have any interest?

{Ed002's Note - West Ham would really like to do a deal for Song in the summer. However, there are three factors that will be critical in Song's decision about where he moves next: (a) the asking price, (b) wages of £100k plus a week, and (c) what other clubs are interested in him beyond WHU. It is too far off to really say at this time but the wages may be too high for WHU. Certainly Inter Milan have spoken with Barcelona about the player - which has sparked a thought that he could be loaned to Inter until January and then be used as part of an exchange for exchance.}

alright eds

I was out with a arsenal fan, and he said he new people with connections to arsenal. he said we was going to sign Walcott in January for 18m, but he got injured. he said we will probably go back in for him. can you shed any light on this.

thanks will

My brother had Ian Ayre in his cab a few weeks ago this is what he said say for instance it looks like glen Johnson is going so around November we will get together and discuss a right back the committee tell the scouts to look for a right back we ask brendan for a choice of his own and we even throw another player into the mix we collect all the info see what money is available for other positions we make a collective decision but brendan had the final say if he says yes or no that's the final decision please I don't need Earache and abuse this happened and my brother knew it was Ayre coming out it was a booking so he rang me and asked me for any questions for him

{Ed002's Note - I still expect him to join Manchester United.}

Believable3 Unbelievable3

25 Apr 2015 01:16:33
I expect that too tho can u at least confirm that we approached him and his representatives because you said we were ready to pay the asking price

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool certainly spoke with his agent and with PSV.}

24 Apr 2015 09:45:28
Hi Eds,

Are Liverpool or have they ever shown an interest in Asier Illarramendi ?

What do you think of him as a player?

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid will look for a significant fee for Asier Illarramendi who is of interest to both Inter Milan and AC Milan in addition to Arsenal and Athletic Bilbao who were negotiating a January transfer. Will almost certainly move in the summer, but Liverpool has shown no interest.}

Ed what's going on with draxler one minuet everybody wanted him but shalke were asking silly money and nothing came of it but since he seems to have gone off the radar, after a disappointing season from what I have heard wouldn't it be worth somebody taking a punt on him

{Ed002's Note - Taking "a punt" is not how transfers work.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Apr 2015 09:35:00
You're talking about BR Ed002. I'd of thought "taking a punt" is absolutely accurate, lol ;)

I would have said signing Balotelli was the very definition of "taking a punt"

23 Apr 2015 13:40:04
Eds reports in the papers that we are interested in mandukic if athletico, anything in this? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Mandzukic will be sold this summer as Atletico look to fund a bid for Cavani. Manchester City see Mandzukic as a replacement for Dzeko and it is a solution that suits all. Napoli also has an interest in the player. "Apparently" (an agent's "apparently"), Manchester United and Arsenal remain interested. Maybe not.}

Ok ed thanks so no chance then!

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Liverpool interest.}

23 Apr 2015 22:46:30
so if atletico madrid can sign cavani Liverpool fc can sign CAVANI??? in your vision . not . i bet my mercedes on that

{Ed001's Note - you do realise Atletico are a massive club competing at the very highest level right? They offer COMPETITIVE Champions League football.}

Hello Eds. I just read a report that we have offered a. Contract to Andre Ayew is this true Eds? By the way love this site I check it out every day

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware, and Liverpool has certainly not spoken with Marseille about compensation.

Andre Ayew will look to move in the summer once free of his contractual ties - and whilst Newcastle and Everton maintain their interest they have been joined by Roma and Inter Milan in actively seeking to have him sign a pre-contract agreements. All four clubs have already spoken with Marseille regarding compensation, so that will not be an issue. Last summer saw some interest from Newcastle, Inter Milan, Arsenal, Aston Villa, QPR, Hull and Dynamo Kyiv. Liverpool also enquired after a guideline price for the player at that time. Recently Roma, Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund, Inter, Everton and Wolfsburg have made enquiries with Inter, Everton and Newcastle are pushing as I say. Marseille discussed the player with Spurs and West Ham in January and an offer from Napoli was rejected. The player has suggested he would like to move on to a "better" side and cited Chelsea, Real Madrid or Barcelona as ideal destinations - he will be waiting a long time for that. A move to Italy appears the most likely option with Roma, I understand, offering the best package.

If Liverpool were to make an offer there is a good chance he would be interested. The player's agent has been in Italy all week talking to Inter and Roma. A representative of Marseille is in England at the moment talking to clubs about the possible transfer of another player - perhaps the club should contact her to agree the compensation. Marseille are looking for a fixed amount and it won't be an issue.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

24 Apr 2015 08:16:49
Hey Ed what position does Ayew play in and do you see him as a good addition, would he go into first 11 or is he a squad player.

{Ed002's Note - Ayew is a forward who is generally used as a left winger. Talking to the Marseille representative last night, she tells me that Roma, Newcastle, Everton or Inter remain right now the only clubs who have agreed compensation with Marseille and are pushing for a deal with the player. She believes his agent is now in Germany dealing with something related to Joshua Guilavogui.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2015 08:31:20
Hi EDs
Are you aware of any interest in Roma's Radja Nainggolan from Liverpool? I think he`s a cracking player and looks well suited to premier league football.

{Ed002's Note - Nainggolan still has some remaining complex co-ownership issues - which once fully resolved will possibly see offers from at least Manchester United and Manchester City. He has a stupid enough hairdo to fit in nicely at Liverpool, but a move without Champions League football is hard to imagine.}

Believable1 Unbelievable2

23 Apr 2015 13:57:22
Kirikou's younger brother, with that hairdo? Or is it Balotelli's?!

22 Apr 2015 19:45:12
Hi eds, was wondering if Liverpool or any other team have looked at Viktor Fischer, he seems to have dropped off the radar in the past year or so and was wondering if you'd heard anything, thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Viktor Fischer has been subject to recent interest from Aston Villa and previous interest from Milan, Manchester United, Manchester City, Spurs, Roma and Werder Bremen. Ajax has negotiated a new contract with him but might let him leave as, when fit, he has not been performing at all well. He was out for nearly a year with injury but clubs kept enquiring. There was a suggestion that Liverpool might be interested last summer but it remains unconfirmed - although they have certainly taken a look before his injury - which kept him out much longer than anticipated. It would be a major risk.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

22 Apr 2015 19:23:25
Ed there's a young player for Santos barbosa plays up front have you heard of him and if so any teams in Europe interested cheers

{Ed002's Note - Santos' Gabriel (Barbosa) continues to be of interest to Fiorentina, Chelsea and Manchester United. However, much is expected of him and there is an agreement between Santos and Barcelona that will be exercised in 2016 in all probability, although Chelsea will try and usup that.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 15:39:10
Hi Eds, do you know if any clubs are interested in Porto's Casemiro ? Do you think Liverpool should go for him?

{Ed002's Note - Porto's loan player Casemiro is attracting the attention of Dortmund, Juventus, Everton and, owning club, Real Madrid who are keen to offer him a new contract. Porto would like to make the deal permanent. Dortmund's new manager will likely end their interest as he has another target in mind.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 10:40:22
Edd001, reports skrtl will sign extension unfortunately. Do you think even with change of management he will remain here?

{Ed001's Note - sadly it seems so. No idea why, but yes it looks likely he will stay for now.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

22 Apr 2015 11:32:57
I find it baffling he has managed to stay and play while Agger was forced to leave. Agger was slower (than he already was) but he still read the game well and as far as ball playing centrebacks go there weren't many better in EPL.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 11:38:34
Give the guy a break. at least he shows courage and fight and gets stuck in. yes he makes errors but doesn't hide like some.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Apr 2015 11:59:12
Dezmondo it's his errors that costs us games.Yes he's a ok defender but we need quality in there right now.He is either one tackle away from a free kick or a penalty.There has to be better players out there.
Barry inLouth

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 14:06:38
Barry his errors usually come as he is trying to come across to cover in the full back posistions or because we don't have a decent defensive mid he gets pulled out of podistion and is then chasing trying to stop an attack or break play up. He wins a lot in the air and in a settled back 3 or 4 he us the best we have imo mate. Not all will agree but then that's what us Liverpool fans do isn't it.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 15:41:17
He's our best defender why wouldn't he he's under rated in my opinion a bit rash granted but still a very good defender who can contribute to a few goals

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Apr 2015 16:20:54
Mate isn't great we can come on here and air our views but at the end of the day we just love the club.

24 Apr 2015 21:42:13
Skrtel drops to deep and plays people onside, we should be pushing up and playing them offside. I don't know how many times I've seen everyone in a line except Skrtel who's 5 yards deeper, 2 players push past the line and Skrtel plays them all onside for a 2v1.

I do admire the guy, I think he's got great heart and determination, he's a real warrior, but his dropping deep when everyone else is holding a line costs us more often than not.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 09:05:08
Hey Eds,

With questions over Mignolets place in the squad (despite a recent uptick in form), have we looked at Lopes from Lyon as a potential target for Keeper. Good young talent, out of contract 2016, and experience in a top league. Any idea if we (or anyone else) has shown any interest?

{Ed002's Note - Lopes won't be moving to Liverpool.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 10:16:28
I don't see why a keeper should be one of our priorities this summer.

Mignolet has improved dramatically since xmas so why not just use ward as back up for now anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 06:44:05
Morning Eds

Do we stil retain some interest in Khedira? I no we did a while back and clubs had doubts over hos fitness and he wanted CL football,bit suspect without CL it ain't happening?

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid are looking much less likely to offer a new deal to Khedira now that Silva has arrived. He is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any side outside of Spain now and AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Arsenal and Schalke 04 sre all interest. Each of these clubs has spoken with thge representatives of the player. The player's representatives have also approached Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich to guage interest as Khedira is keen to play in the Champions League next season. Chelsea and Arsenal are both concerned about the player's on going fitness. At the end of the day, if he can prove his fitness, Liverpool or Schalke would likely be the best fit for him, although don't discount Dortmund.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 09:34:47
Cheers mate

So he keen to play in Champions League,can we forget it then if as it looks we won't finish top 4? I take it if we sign Milner then we won't get Khedira also? Can you see it happing mate Realisticly?

{Ed002's Note - I have told you the situation as it is - I cannot answer anything in respect of these strange scenarios you create in your head.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 10:53:27
Its not a strange scenario at all Ed. Just asking if we would look to get 2 players in simular posistions that's all.

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Apr 2015 23:41:11
Eds do you know immobile's situation ?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Ciro Immobile from Roma and Milan and the player wants to return to Italy after a difficult year in Germany - actually a real disaster.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Apr 2015 07:19:41

22 Apr 2015 09:22:43
Aquilani, Dossena, Balotelli, Borini etc. our record in spotting "talent" from Italy hasn't been impressive.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2015 19:40:32
Think this is largely emanating from The Telegraph - where their sports pages are pushing the idea that he will be brought in as a replacement for Balotelli. Looking at his scoring record at Dortmund, at least it's a like-for-like LOL.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2015 18:37:38
Ed do you know if the interest in Depay is a replacement for Sterling?
Cheers

{Ed001's Note - I don't, I will have to see if I can find out what is going on there as I am not sure if the situation surrounding Sterling has changed over the last couple of weeks.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Apr 2015 23:14:06
That will be great, if he doesn't want to commit himself. I guess depay is the right replacement and we should pay any amount for him. Enough of loosing out on quality players or good talents.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Apr 2015 17:49:15
Hey eds, as always awesome site and my first place I go to, too dispell rumours and find out the truth, this morning I was sent a link to an article, in the telegraph a paper supposedly not known to (air quotes ) fabricate sports news, they were saying Brendan will stay despite the owners not being entirely happy with our season and also that efforts are being made to sign a striker capable of providing what we are missing. Is this true? Can I just say I want Brendan to stay don't really want to rebuild again with the quality of player we have compared to chelsea, united, city and arsenal I think at times we punch above our weight and I do enjoy that sorry about the long question.

{Ed001's Note - it would be a major surprise if he was still in charge next season. Though a lot depends on finding a man to replace him. Newspapers are getting all their stories from the UK, they have no idea what the owners want or think.}

Believable2 Unbelievable3

21 Apr 2015 18:17:40
And other than what you've already said Ed, can you say who you think we will get in place? I appreciate you probably won't/can't answer that but thought I would ask mate.

{Ed001's Note - I really don't know yet.}

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Apr 2015 20:30:26
He'll be staying and I for one am glad.

Agree1 Disagree3

21 Apr 2015 16:20:12
Hi eds,
Awhile ago you posted a nice summary of what you expect to happen and what you would like to see. Have any of the targets you proposed (Handanovic, Darmian, Balanta, Matuidi, Sanson and Mitrovic) been approached or been looked at?
Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Sanson has a lengthy break with injury now. The only one that Liverpool may have looked at is Mitrovic - they were represented at a recent Anderlecht game but my assumption was it was simply a further check on the progress of Dennis Praet - so maybe.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

21 Apr 2015 21:07:53
I would quite happily take Praet. Good little player, love watching him.
