So the Miror is reporting today that Coutinho is finally gone in a few weeks?
Eds, January or summer, what would youh say is most likely?


{Ed001's Note - summer is the most likely, though he is trying to get himself out in January.}

1.) 20 Dec 2017 10:50:24
The press must read this website daily. A day or so ago Ed002 mentions meetings by Coutinho agents and his family with the owners now apparently the deal is moving forward.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, even when its news I would rather not believe haha.

2.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56
I personally hope it is January. He doesn't want to be here, let's get it over and done with. Would you agree with this Ed1 or would you prefer him to go in the summer when we can get a replacement? I know its a difficult one, he has been playing better recently but still not up to scratch in my opinion, the whole saga has affected his game since the summer, sure he's had a few decent games, that's about it.

{Ed001's Note - I would have sold him in the summer. For me Leicester are the perfect example of the difference that arises when you have players that want to play for you and players that don't. The team that did won the league and almost that exact same team with a few that no longer wanted to be there was in relegation trouble. I know that is not all it was about, but that was the main issue there and you could see the way one player wanting to leave in Mahrez spread seeds of discontent throughout the squad.}

4.) 20 Dec 2017 13:05:03
He is going, that much we can be sure of, however the important thing is that the club gets the best deal it can and buys a suitable replacement and doesn't waste the money.

5.) 20 Dec 2017 11:55:01
That's a good point actually Ed1, I didn't think of the Leicester saga and I do strongly agree, if we'd of flogged him in the summer without messing about I genuinely do believe we may have done a little better if we had. I think it was all up in the air about his future and he disrupted the squad with his antics.

Things seemed to of settled down the past few weeks but it still doesn't disregard the fact he wants out, why keep a player or attempt to who wants out. I'm not too fussed about transfer prices these days because it's confusing but by the sounds of things we could've got a good price for him in the summer so keeping him when he wanted to leave really baffled me to be honest and what worries me now is, Barcelona have other options lined up, I hope to Christ we don;t bugger about should they put an offer in (no doubt they will) because then they could move onto their next target and we're left lumbered with a player who doesn't want to be here.

It may be just be I don't know, I'm far from intelligent with football like many of you are but many of his games this season it seemed to me like he deliberately didn't give a damn, he's been like a ghost many of the games, going missing and what not, not to mention his 'injurys', this doesn't go down well with me. We're still paying his wages, the respect I had for him is gone having said that if he scores a few past Arsenal then fair play but I can't respect the lad anymore. He could've gone about it all in a much more professional way.

{Ed001's Note - football has moved away from the clubs holding all the power so we may as well have just let him go and let him have his wish. I do also feel we would have done slightly better, though he is still affecting games going forward, he is virtually non-existent when we turnover the ball.}

6.) 20 Dec 2017 12:37:32
Ed, do you not think there's some nuance? Saints decision to keep VVD has clearly backfired, his and their form has nosedived and they'll probably get less money now than they could have in the summer. Keeping Coutinho, right now, seems to have been the right call. There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch. We may even get more money now when he does go.

In hindsight I'd say Liverpool got this one right.

{Ed001's Note - I disagree, there has been a very obvious effect. There have been games when he has cost us badly, with his constant refusal to pass when it was on etc and laziness in working back. The team is not good enough, compared to most of the opponents we face, to carry passengers.}

7.) 20 Dec 2017 12:45:10
Good point Ed001 regards Leicester.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

8.) 20 Dec 2017 14:35:39
'There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch'

Half or more than half of the games he has played there has been an obvious effect, a negative one. Same goes with him doing business on the pitch, he doesn't do it a lot, it's only been the past few weeks mate.

I'd say maybe 3-4 games I've thought 'now that's the Coutinho we all know' that's not good enough.

9.) 20 Dec 2017 21:42:33
Can't see him moving in January to sit on the bench especially champions league games where we will probably win it and at Barcelona he can't even play.

10.) 21 Dec 2017 15:53:02
I think Ed has a point. Cou may be scoring goals and assists, no doubt BUT that pales in comparison to what he has doing last season as when he was fit and firing, he was brilliant both offensively and defensively. That is not happening now as he is less effective than last season. He does not pass the ball as quickly and often to open players and chooses o shoot rather than pas like he did disgracefully vs Burnley. He moans when he loses the ball way more often than last season (the Spurs game was a disgrace on this point) and his defensive nous (something we all hailed him for) has nose-dived immensely. This is the point I think, Ed is referring to.



15 May 2017 10:34:49
Ed 002, on May 30, 2016, you stated in your response to a post that Sofiane Feghouli may have been tentatively speculated for Liverpool but you believed he was moving elsewhere with confirmation expected shortly. Well, it happened like you said (not that anyone is surprised you called that right as you almost always do! ) .
Anyway, I thought he was probably the brightest spark for the Hammers yesterday and I was wondering, purely speculating, if there'll any movement this summer for Sofiane Feghouli this summer, and if so, if it has anything to do with Liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - I am aware of two clubs who have spoken with West Ham about Sofiane Feghouli but Liverpool moved on to Mane last season and seem satisfied with him.}

1.) 15 May 2017 12:14:30
I think satisfied would be an understatement ed.

2.) 15 May 2017 13:57:38
What makes you think he is good enough for us? Cannot even get into the West Ham first team.

3.) 15 May 2017 16:41:05
Neither could mascherano but he turned out alright (potential understatement) . Sometimes quality players don't suit the team / manager they play for, it doesn't affect their qualities and fit in other teams. I have no idea if feghouli is any good but if our scouts decide they want him I will support him, as with all players.

4.) 16 May 2017 19:09:46
Mascherano was a top class player playing for a numpty manager who didn't understand how to use him. Feghouli is a bang average player.

5.) 18 May 2017 18:42:20
That numpty manager named Alan Pardew, was the one who thought a highly-rated Mascherano from Argentina knocking on the door of the national team, was inferior to the great Hayden Mullins. There's a reason he is a woeful n=manager, out of a job, and bitter who has not gotten over LFC and SG snatching the FA Cup from in in 2006.



07 May 2017 11:30:23
Sorry Eds if this has been touched on before, but it was on a name on the Sharkopod so I thought I should ask. Is Liverpool really linked to Lukasz Teodorczyk? Who has watched him play? Is he any good? I read he's the new Lewandowski!
Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - It is a different Merseyside based club who has shown a little interest.}

1.) 07 May 2017 18:14:11
For the love of god, I am sick of Tranmere Rovers stealing all the good players!

2.) 07 May 2017 19:07:11
hahahaha nice one MK.

3.) 08 May 2017 09:33:54
I only watched him on our national team, and he's average. He's behind Lewandowski and Milik in pecking order.

4.) 09 May 2017 14:08:08
Send him to Woodison then 😂.



28 Jan 2016 19:14:20
Ed002, you commented on the Emil Forsberg rumor at the beginning of the month and December last year I think. Is Leicester still in the running? I just rwas Leipzig feel insulted because of a 9 million Euro bid from us. Please enlighten if you have time to.


{Ed002's Note - RBL's Emil Forsberg was a player that Claudio Ranieri tried to sign as Monaco manager and now as Leicester manager he has returned and will look for a deal in January - but I think it unlikely that anything can be done. Previous interest of Liverpool dates from an attempt by Brendan Rodgers to purchase the player from Sundsvall when he first arrived at the club - but he opted for Assaidi. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool returning, nor of any €9M bid and the owner of Leipzig when asked about Liverpool interest said he didn't know of any. If interest has returned it would cetainly spell the end of Markovic and pehaps someone else. Interest of PSV, Fiorentina and Lille existed when he was at Malmo but he made the move to RBL instead. Do not be surprised by a bid from Lyon - again January is not a likely time for him to move.}



15 Sep 2014 15:36:59
Ed002, I know you talked about Pedro's availability in the past, and I still don't know why we did not make any move to sign him. Do you think that would change in January? I just read that Liverpool may be interested in Pedro in January, but I wanted to run it by you.
A long season ahead!
Thanks, Ed.


{Ed002's Note - It would make no sense at all for Liverpool to make such a move in January with the players they have already added to the squad.}

1.) Pedro is better then what we got at the moment. But are kids will come good

22 Jan 2018 15:18:11
I can't fault Ed002 for always telling us as it is. I remember very clearly how he laid it out a year or more in advance that a certain Phil wanted to bail out. The rest is history.
Now, Salah. This is very sad indeed! How can we sustain a title challenge in this kind of climate? The problem is that the news these days are not subtle at all. It seems everyone in Egyptian football are propagating it. This must be fun for Real Madrid; they don't even need to turn the screw at all!
Ed002, I know you hate questions about timing, but what is your guess when this will happen? Because it seems like Coutinho all over again; a matter of when, not whether it will happen.


{Ed002's Note - They may we’ll make an offer this season but Liverpool will resist selling. There is another matter that could potentially put a spanner in the works in respect of a contract.}

1.) 22 Jan 2018 18:33:16
Would you possibly be able to shed any light on this "other matter" Ed? Don't worry if not!

{Ed002's Note - I would rather not, it will only upset people.}

2.) 22 Jan 2018 18:46:48
You do ask for trouble Mr Ed002 🤔😉😄✌.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 18:46:55
Unless its a clause stating he can go on the cheap to Madrid im not that bothered. if he goes in the summer it would be for crazy money, more than Coutinho and unlike in the past, we have a manager capable of spending the money wisely.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 22:05:12
I'm not even bothered anymore, Ed. If Salah wants to force a move, let him go PROVIDED we stick his suitors for every penny we can milk from them.

5.) 22 Jan 2018 22:56:57
the thing is, when we do sell one of our best players, it just might be a good idea, to replace him, in the same window, they say that many a game is won or lost in midfield,
we really missed Couts tonight, I am hoping that Lallana has now got his place in the side, we were very short and slow first half .



22 Jan 2018 15:25:02
Ed001 or fellow Reds, do you know if TAA will start ahead of Gomez today?


{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}

1.) 22 Jan 2018 16:55:06
Maybe West Brom in the cup.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 19:06:00
I can see a couple of changes for the Cup game, and why not .

3.) 22 Jan 2018 22:37:01
Based on the Swansea game, TAA and Lallana deserve to start the Cup game, and I hope that we speed up the play, cos west brom will sit back a lot and hit us on the break, and make the most of any set piece, its going to be another hard game . could end up another draw .



16 Jan 2018 16:39:05
My prediction is that Mane will be a monster next season with Naby Keita supplying him and developing a strong West African connection with him. Similar background and culture, just the way Firmino and Coutinho improved each other and developed a strong understanding on the pitch based on their time together off it.
I think you'll see a very happy and confident Mane next season for sure. He will be the most in the squad to benefit from having Keita in the team.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 17:03:26
That'll be great to see, I still think Mane has had a good season just not as brutal as he could be but still doing very well. I do agree I think Keita will really help him step his game up.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 17:10:40
Forget your culture, colour, age or race, good players will play with anyone.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 17:28:46
100% agree Davey.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 18:35:31
Mane is already a monster.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 18:37:14
Hey Davey, I'm not saying you can't play with anyone else from anywhere in the world; Mane is in fact doing that right now, and has done that since he moved to Europe. But players tend to develop strong on the pitch understanding based on off the pitch friendship too. They're humans, not robots!

6.) 16 Jan 2018 18:39:53
First thought. AFCON! Argh. Mane, Keita, Salah!

7.) 16 Jan 2018 19:10:59
Think AFCON got moved to summer months if your concern is players going away just after Christmas.



06 Jan 2018 22:35:56
I'm sorry, but why is everyone sending condolences to Ed001? Are you okay Ed? Is there anything we can do?


{Ed001's Note - I am ok thank Noski, lost my best mate just before Xmas and his funeral is Monday.}

1.) 07 Jan 2018 03:36:33
I'm so sorry to hear this. It's sad because I attended a memorial service today for an elderly couple who died one week of each other, last Saturday, and the Saturday before.
I'm hoping you find some comfort from having so many "friends" on here chatting you up.
Hold your head up high, Ed. YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - I am so sorry to hear that, my great aunt and uncle were a bit like that. Sometimes some couples can't live apart, I know auntie Beattie couldn't live without him, she had waited 30+ years for him after he vanished during the war and turned up years later having lost his memory at Dunkirk, while they were engaged, and got married to the nurse who looked after him.}



06 Jan 2018 18:06:29
All the best Phillippe Coutinho. You'll never walk alone.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:47:43
Spot on, Noski! I hope he realizes his dreams cos he was brilliant for us overall and played thru his skins and thru illness at times cos he loved the club and I know deep down, he is grateful for all we did for him, giving him a chance after rotting in the Inter reserves. I know that cos he actually said so once in the past. Good luck, my friend and YNWA!

I thought we'd need TAA, and I actually asked begore the game if anyone knew whether he was going to play. In the absence of a very creative mind like Coutinho, our only real option would have been someone to stretch the width of the pitch a little bit. You could see their game plan was to crowd us in and nullify us.
Well, it's all water under the bridge now. I was worried about the game and was uncomfortable when some predicted a bashing.
Hope we can recover from this setback. That race at the top is so tight, and we just blew our cushion on Spurs and Arsenal.

All I can say is that I blame Ed002 for Origi's misfortune at Liverpool! Ed002 cast a spell on him and said he'd never be world class! Now look!
Can you even defend that, Ed?

Ben Woodburn will take his chances if Klopp offers him. He's young and raw, but he cvan make some contributions. In t hat sense, he's ready. Maybe this is his real opportunity to stake a claim, who knows?

Ed002 is right. Klopp has flip-flopped with this goalkeeper situation a lot in the last 18 months. Many here believes Karius has done enough to get the spot, and obviously Klopp agrees, even though he declared that Mignolet was No. 1 after watching all 3 fight for the spot in pre-season. Ed002 has always asked us if Klopp lies to his players. That's the question I'm asking myself at this moment too.
Is Karius significantly better than Mignolet? We all have our opinions. Now Karius has the spot, and we'll support him as No. 1 until the end of the season, or until another Bournemouth happens, or whichever comes first!

Does Karius even care? He is so annoying I hope he gets better. Everybody tried to play their part yesterday, but it just felt as if we didn't have a goalkeeper we could count on. It felt like they would score from every meaningful attack they had! I'm really hoping we sort this out, because this team has a lot of potential. Dream victory yesterday!

It's hard to argue with any of what you wrote, Ed001. But I'm honestly happy with Loris Karius, and it has nothing to do with last night's game. I did criticize Klopp's flip-flopping or double-speak on who his No. 1 was from pre-season until a month ago. But Karius has looked the part in the last three or four games, and he may just nick this No. 1 job full-time and beyond the summer! More importantly, it seems like he's happy to be playing, he looks very confident (not cocky), and he seems to be forming a good partnership with the defenders in front of him. I'm really hoping he kicks on and make that position solid, so we have less to worry about in that department.
Now we have 10 days to chill, and hope we keep this form until the end of the season.

Ed001, I enjoyed reading that piece about Rafa and moving plates and glasses in 4-4-2! You talk about someone obsessed with the game!

Thanks for the review Ed.


{Ed001's Note - oh he is obsessed, bless him.}
