Hi Eds,

Reports from usually reliable sources about a young CB called Ben Wilmot from Stevenage.

Is it true we're interested? (as are many other clubs)



{Ed025's Note - apparently liverpool and spurs are the front runners for his signature imred..



20 Nov 2017 19:15:33
Hi Eds, Francisco Ferrero agent of benfica has come out in an interview and said Liverpool spoke to himself and benfica about a transfer last summer. Is there any truth in this? Or is it an agent trying to drum up interest?


{Ed002's Note - A number of clubs have spoken with him apparently including Liverpool. But keep in mind he is not for the first team.}



28 Aug 2017 14:30:02
Liverpool have signed Naby Keita, to join next summer.

Paul Joyce tweet.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 14:45:48
Is it true Keita has passed a medical and will be coming to liverpool next summer? James Pearce just announced it on Twitter.

2.) 28 Aug 2017 14:47:08
undergoing his medical today.

3.) 28 Aug 2017 14:51:40
Wow! Keita joining the mighty reds!

4.) 28 Aug 2017 14:51:51
Surely you can't pass a medical for a year in advance! Anything could happen in the following season Eds?

5.) 28 Aug 2017 14:52:04
Graeme Kelly is a genius.

6.) 28 Aug 2017 14:53:24
I don't understand why is he having a medical now if it's not happening until next summer? Are we signing him and loaning back for the season?

7.) 28 Aug 2017 14:54:19
Apparently paid more than his release clause, Can's replacement?

8.) 28 Aug 2017 14:55:20
Would make sense to get Sanches on a season long loan.

9.) 28 Aug 2017 14:56:07
Well done Macca! If Keita and Lemar coming in then Couts is gone.

10.) 28 Aug 2017 15:01:40
Now showing on BBC. If right, credit to Macca. Well done pal! I normally hate Mondays. But this. After a 4-0 win over Arsenal. I might evn buy the wife some flowers (cheap ones mind) .

11.) 28 Aug 2017 15:02:45
Slightly gutted he's not coming in now, but if we can bag ourselves Lemar I think that's a good signing as he can genuinely cover a few positions.

12.) 28 Aug 2017 15:02:47
Don't know why it took them this long to realise that was the best possible deal.

They didn't want to lose him
We wanted him
They knew he was off next year for 20 mil less
We want him and are willing to pay
We have can until next summer
Buy him and loan him back

Can't decide wether there idiots or geniuses. Haha.

13.) 28 Aug 2017 14:52:43
If true mr ed 002 owes me an apology from my post on 1st august were he shot me down in flames for suggesting this idea.

{Ed002's Note - Keita does not have a "buy out clause". He has a "release clause" that is not now nor will ever be of relevance to Liverpool. Whatever Liverpool end up paying for the player will be unrelated to that "release clause". Try not to be an embarrassing DF.}

14.) 28 Aug 2017 14:59:06
Bye bye Emre Can then!

15.) 28 Aug 2017 15:04:26
OMG! Brilliant news about Keita. What a player this lad is.
Pity we have to wait til next season but he's definately worth waiting for.
Well done LFC for getting the deal done .

16.) 28 Aug 2017 15:06:47
That is some serious good news.

17.) 28 Aug 2017 15:08:16
I reckon we kept it quiet because we didn't want any other clubs getting wind of the deal we were setting up.

18.) 28 Aug 2017 15:14:15
Now on front page of the Echo.

19.) 28 Aug 2017 15:15:48
I will be really gutted if we lose Can. If you could guarantee me that kieta will perform to Can's standard atm then I'd be happy. That says it all really. Hopefully Can signs as he sees liverpool are serious about building something special. I actually think pipco and Can are crazy for wanting to leave. We are clearly on the way up.

20.) 28 Aug 2017 15:20:54
Agree Supered, I think Can will be immense in time (already pretty immense this season so far! ) and would love to see him stay but I suspect if Keita is signing that might be the trigger for Can to re-evaluate his options and leave on a free next year to a side that will make him a guaranteed starter. Hope I'm wrong.

21.) 28 Aug 2017 15:31:09
I agree Superred, Keita deal is great news but would be dampened by the loss of Can, I want to keep Can desperately. He's shown massive strides in improvement knows not to hold onto the ball to long now.

Fingers crossed Can sees our ambition and feels he can get enough playing time in the side. I don't blame him if he's been told he'll be back up though he needs to be starting often.

22.) 28 Aug 2017 15:40:09
I know SGRED. He's been unreal this season and is clearly getting better. Kieta deal certainly sweetens the fact that Can will leave. The thing that gives me hope is the fact I can't see liverpool missing out on decent money for Can. Surely we wouldn't wanna miss out on a decent fee. If we get lemar I think we need to off load one or two. Perhaps origi and coutinio out lemar and vvd in.

23.) 28 Aug 2017 15:41:34
Finally some movement in the transfer front. especially for our main targets.

24.) 28 Aug 2017 15:43:02
Medical now, finding a house, shouldn't Keita be coming now?

25.) 28 Aug 2017 15:47:03
ed02 obv the release clause is relevant as a starting point for negotiations. If Bayern can take him for 48m next summer clearly we offered a better option to not have him end up at a rival team in the same league as RBL.

{Ed002's Note - The release clause has nothing whatsoever to do with Liverpool - and Bayern Munich has nothing to do with the matter at all.

As for the rest of your post, it was simply abuse. The site does not need you or any other trolling ignorant rubbish like you. I deleted it and your account.

As for the posts you and the other dum fucks have been trolling, we will be deleting those as well.}

26.) 28 Aug 2017 15:48:04
Ed002 as question for you:

I have just read in a german forum that it is not possible for a player to sign a pre-contract one year in advance. Is that true? If so how are these kinds of businesses handled then?

{Ed002's Note - A player can join a club and be loaned back. A player can sign a pre-contract to sign with another side six months before his contract ends (if a foreign side) or at the end of the playing season (if it is a side in the same country). The clubs can agree a future transfer of the player but it cannot become part of the player's contract, the player cannot be registered with the new side and the Application for Registration and provision of International Clearance and the Granting of a Work Permit cannot take place until the move actually happens.}

27.) 28 Aug 2017 15:57:31
Are we still interested in Navy Keith though?

28.) 28 Aug 2017 15:58:01
Wow! Could it bee keep Couts for a title push, let him go next summer, Keita comes in? Need to get the rock solid CD over the line too, then I'd a 8/ 10 to the recruitment team for their summer.

29.) 28 Aug 2017 15:58:54
There's are 3 midfield positions you know guys. It is possible for Emre and Keita to play on the same team. It doesn't have to be one or the other especially if coutinho leaves at some point. Maybe Klopp has a plan to become a midfield force with hendo can and Keita with Gini and lallana the quality depth. Hopefully Emre sees that this year!

30.) 28 Aug 2017 16:00:46
Sky are confirming it now.

31.) 28 Aug 2017 16:07:44
My opinion. Winaldum/ longball hendo replacement Can will sign if all well by xmas. If Ox turning down 180k then im sure thry will up the offer to Can.

32.) 28 Aug 2017 16:15:46
Thanks Ed002 :)

33.) 28 Aug 2017 16:18:37
Depending on how RBLs season goes, could he be ours in January? Say they're out of the CL, Bayern 12 points clear in Bundesliga.

"For a few dollars more" starring Navy Keith.

34.) 28 Aug 2017 16:20:32
Ed002 I said just for convo starter on 1st august do u think we could buy him and lone him back for a year.

{Ed002's Note - Why lie now? Your words were "Liverpool could buy keita for his buy out clause". I have already explained. I don't kow why you wish to embarrass yourself even further.}

35.) 28 Aug 2017 16:23:41
On current form I'd drop Hendo altogether. I know he has had some issues with injury and he is being asked to do the unglamorous jobs in the middle of the park but he's really not been good enough this season so far or before his layoff last. Give him a chance to recover properly and switch back on. even Sunday's game passed him by.

36.) 28 Aug 2017 16:42:38
Kudos to Mecca for calling the Keita signing, when there were so many doubters.

37.) 28 Aug 2017 16:36:25
I know TIA19 but apparently Can is concerned about playing time. That is why he hasn't signed an extension. More midfielders coming in can only be a bad sign. That said, I hope you're right and the thing is, if Can isn't getting playing time that was because he wasn't doing enough in training. That certainly seems to have changed and for me he is the first midfielder on the team sheet. Hendo, Can and kieta would be awesome. Can kieta and lallana too. We will have too much class in the midfield.

38.) 28 Aug 2017 16:37:46
These are great problems to have though. Last season I wouldn't have believed we would be arguing about who to pick out of such a good pool.

39.) 28 Aug 2017 16:56:28
No way, Jock. Hendo is getting better and he was more than solid last night. You can regain full fitness without actually playing, end of. Why would you drop a player who is getting better esp. if he is coming back from a long injury lay off or were you not aware of the fact that he has not played a game since February? Hendo is getting up to speed and he was good vs Hoff and much better vs Arsenal hence, he should not be dropped.

40.) 28 Aug 2017 17:38:37
Jock, did you even watch the Arsenal or Hoffenheim matches? Henderson was one of our best performers and led by example. Think before making unfair and silly comments.

41.) 28 Aug 2017 17:42:08
WTF you lot on he's not coming till next year bloody hell hardly took macca to tell us that would happen. The centre half is the real area of concern D day tomorrow!

42.) 28 Aug 2017 17:50:29
Naby should leave the house hunting for a year and pick up a Brexit bargain.
My hope would be that we can secure Can also, with Gini that would be a powerhouse midfield.

43.) 28 Aug 2017 18:32:43
I said for the buy out clause which it sounds like that plus a premium why u being a pump.

44.) 28 Aug 2017 19:01:04
Bingo Red. Keita is the ball winning driving the team forward, kante type player. Hendo is the sit along the back four sideways passes and longball to the wing. he doesn't drive the team at all, and is not a spoiler. better suited to Man U than Lpool. Personally Can, Keita and Lemar-kovacic is the better midfield.

45.) 28 Aug 2017 20:15:06
You need someone like Hendo in the team. He plays it sideways a lot but that is stitching the play together and switching the ball. This is how you break teams down. His ball winning skills and leadership quality and stamina and speed make him an absolute must for me. Can Hendo and kieta would be devastating.

46.) 28 Aug 2017 20:33:25
Whos going to play defense splitting balls. Goals fron Mid. that's why lemar kov. Are being looked at. 1 had got to go.

47.) 28 Aug 2017 21:28:52
"Hendo is the sit along the back four sideways passes and longball to the wing"
Ok Rio. let’s completely ignore the freedom he had vs Hoff and Arsenal where he was able to fly forward and press the OPPONENTS cbs and win us the ball for a goal scoring opportunity.
That is his game. He was always MUCH better in an advanced role and our midfield 3 seem to have the freedom to swap who sits back while someone goes forwards so he will be doing it a lot more (I hope)
He isn’t just a 'sideways/ backwards passer' or 'long ball to wingers' type of player. He brings a lot more than that. You must be thinking of the great Welsh Xavi or something or you only watched a friendly game when Hendo had A LOT of catching up to do with his fitness and speed.

48.) 29 Aug 2017 13:29:16
You're spot on red Phil. Anyone who thinks Hendo isn't good enough for liverpool simply don't know what they're chatting about. The lad oozes class.



22 Jun 2017 12:21:41
Napoli have bid a supposed 11m (pounds, euros not sure) for Alberto Moreno according to Chris Bascombe of the Telegraph.

The bid was rejected.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 12:36:33
Jesus, someone bid money for Moreno and we said no. Laughable. I guess he's staying as first choice lb then.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 12:42:20
Sevilla and 2 unnamed premier League teams have also enquired but he will not go for less then 15m.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 12:58:37
Sevilla of all looking at Moreno?!? After EL final last year? No way.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 13:07:06
Klopp probably tapped him up then remembered he plays for us already.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 13:11:59
Andy - He used to play for Sevilla and according to Ed001, they still highly rate him but don't want to pay the fee. (think that's what he said anyway! )

{Ed001's Note - he is very much loved by the fans, which is a big thing for the fans.}

6.) 22 Jun 2017 13:54:45
Swap deal for Ghoulam would be a steal!

7.) 22 Jun 2017 14:13:36
Maybe the problem is that he said he would be somewhere but nobody can find him.

8.) 22 Jun 2017 14:38:02
I was under the impression from what I read on here at the time we signed Moreno, that the Sevilla fans were happy to be rid of him as they saw him as a liability defensively?

9.) 22 Jun 2017 15:39:46
he can be used as a makeweight for koulibaly as in moreno+45 mil.

10.) 22 Jun 2017 19:00:37
Excellent BigSqueeze73.

11.) 22 Jun 2017 19:51:34
Hey, if they like him in Seville I won't mind him going there. God bless, but a little odd concidering his display v them last year, that's all.

12.) 22 Jun 2017 19:55:05
Do they want £45m for Koulibaly?

13.) 22 Jun 2017 21:51:34
I like Moreno a lot. Always smiling, always ready to give it his all. Even when he's barely playing he's still encouraging, all smiles, and when he comes on, plays his heart out. Really like the lad.

Unfortunately he's ****

Which counts against him.

14.) 22 Jun 2017 22:42:30
Thank you samikewell.

15.) 23 Jun 2017 00:07:40
Who will our brazilian guys hang out with if he goes?
We should steer clear of spanish LBs in future. Problematic.

In the right system or league he'd flourish. I mean Klopp will encourage Salah were Chelsea (Mourinho) could not.

Spanish league would suit as Alaba would suffer in Prem for me.

p. s. Sebastian Coates got one of player of year awards in Portugal.

16.) 23 Jun 2017 12:00:41
Part of the reason for the rejection is that Napoli were not offering straight money. I don't expect they will return with another offer.



16 Jun 2017 16:29:34
Sky reporting Gomez has been given assurances about first team involvement next season and isn't going out on loan or permanently.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 16:51:40
so I take it that's us not buying a new cb!

2.) 16 Jun 2017 17:18:08
Think a fifth would be ideal, personally, but not essential. Matip and Gomez have injury riddled season, Lovren needs competition and Klaven is a back up. Secure a LB and attacking forward, then see.

3.) 16 Jun 2017 17:31:55
I still see Gomez getting Games even if we get another cb, in my opinion he should be above Klaven and with the injury record of Matip and Lovren and the extra games in Europe he should get some action.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 21:08:08
We still need a fifth CB and either Lucas or Can as an emergency 6th option. let's assume we're uncluttering the squad with Ilori etc.

It's not impossible to have Matip and Lovren injured at the same time. That leaves us with only 2 fit CBs playing if we don't get a fifth. No one to ease the burden of Scunthorpe on a Wednesday night etc, no one to sit on the bench even.

Having 5 CBs plus either a youngster coming up or someone who can "do a job" like Can and Lucas gives you options. Lucas did us proud but we shouldn't need him stepping in unless it's a league cup fixture.

5.) 16 Jun 2017 22:11:34
Jenks ilori moved to reading last year.

6.) 16 Jun 2017 22:20:11
Gomwz is the future.

To train and play the first will hopfully push him on to the next level.

The same applies to Ward, TTA, Woodburn, Ojo and Solanke.

When you see the above, there is half a team of high quality and potential already at the club.

7.) 17 Jun 2017 00:07:29
Gomez could be used at left back if we only get one in.

8.) 17 Jun 2017 10:13:45
Capitol one cup, fa cup will provide him a lot of chances to play, still need a cb at lovren and matips skill or better.

Don't know if it's been posted but Liverpool has started working with goalkeeping consultant hans leitert. Eds any info on him as a coach.


{Ed002's Note - I recall Spurs not being impressed and sacking him a few years back.}

1.) 06 Feb 2018 15:17:31
Appointed by Damien Comolli and sacked by Harry Redknapp. Make of that what you will :)

2.) 06 Feb 2018 15:48:46
At least they recognise a problem area and are trying something.

3.) 06 Feb 2018 15:56:40
Typical Liverpool - when they need some fillet steak, they go out and get a Gregg’s pasty.

4.) 06 Feb 2018 16:48:30
At least it’s not tofu.

5.) 06 Feb 2018 18:46:41
Seems like anywhere Commoli goes, becomes a disaster.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 20:20:18
In his defence, he did bring in Suarez.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 21:16:41
Cardiff, even a dead clock is right twice a day. That does not negate the fact that it is STILL a dead clock. Commoli is rank incompetent and bringing in one or two good players, does not disprove that fact.



22 Jan 2018 18:51:06

Just a young one but any truth in the reports of interest in Ezri Konsa of Charlton.


{Ed002's Note - Yes if you are an Everton fan.}

1.) 22 Jan 2018 21:11:57
Quick rename to Imblue?



14 Jan 2018 15:14:38
"Usually I could say it's a decision for today, but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the goal. " - Klopp

Looks like the shirt is Karius to lose now.


{Ed002's Note - He really doesn't know when to stop saying things about the goalkeepers.}

1.) 14 Jan 2018 15:32:06
I bet Migs will return in goal next week.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 15:35:08
Very true Ed002!

3.) 14 Jan 2018 15:45:47
He plays well then he's in. Simple. Here's your chance Karius. Karius, to victory ;)

4.) 14 Jan 2018 15:49:07
klopps been too nice. Migs has never been up to the job. Time to find out if karius is the right man. Im still not sure but optimistic he will work out.

5.) 14 Jan 2018 18:55:53
We have three keepers who aren't up to it and one that is relatively untested at this level. Bit of a mess really for this position.

Easy solution, keep Ward as cover and get rid of the other keepers and buy a good one in the summer.

{Ed0333's Note - it’s on an easy solution Hessle because Ward wants to be a number 1 mate. In fact they all wanna be top dog so I fully expect the three of me leaving in the summer. That will be a fascinating situation

6.) 14 Jan 2018 19:47:46
Klopp and GK has not been too slick.



20 Jul 2017 16:38:49
Eds, Monaco have publicly accused several clubs of illegal meeting with Mpabbe, I just wanted to know if this was anything to do with Liverpool? Have we gone out of our way to approach another player without permission?

Would it be more appropriate to ask on the European pages?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with Liverpool.}

1.) 20 Jul 2017 16:58:31
Looks like Man City and psg mate.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 17:30:10


There is actually something underhand going on that we're not involved in?

We are losing our touch! (tap)

3.) 20 Jul 2017 17:58:50
I've never been so pleased to see the words 'nothing to do with Liverpool'!

4.) 20 Jul 2017 18:16:05
All clubs will do this some way or another and especially the big clubs.

5.) 20 Jul 2017 19:55:01
Oh we're the shame of the world. Told you everyone was at it. Liverpool are no different.

6.) 20 Jul 2017 23:32:58
supermane - liverpool, man city and psg are not every club mate.



27 Dec 2016 12:55:15
The Aston villa owner has said he/ the club rejected a £25m bid for amavi from an unnamed club. That's an astronomical figure for a left back coming off injury in the championship, it's a pretty massive figure regardless. If they are rejecting those sorts of numbers I think it's safe to say we won't be in for him at that price.


1.) 27 Dec 2016 13:33:52
They probably had no choice but to keep him at the time, nobody lined up to replace him or something.

2.) 27 Dec 2016 13:45:20
There owners are rich so they don't need the money.

3.) 27 Dec 2016 14:22:25
We have Milner, Moreno and the possibility of Juanma being promoted.

Unless were selling either one of Moreno or Milner, we probably won't be buying a LB. atleast that's what i think.

4.) 27 Dec 2016 14:44:36
Old news. Who cares about old news? The Villa owner whose club is currently irrelevant.

5.) 27 Dec 2016 17:36:38
I can't believe we're letting Lucas leave.

He has been an important player this season covering for defence and midfield.

He has also been an important figure for Coutinio when he first arrived and could follow him out the door

If its true good luck Lucas Levia and thanks very much.

A top player who hasn't always been treated well by the likes of Rodgers.

6.) 27 Dec 2016 19:21:24
Lucas hasn't featured much recently. Maybe klopp is more satisfied klavan has settled? I rekon the rags have put old rumours together with lucas not featuring recently and decided he is on his way.

7.) 28 Dec 2016 00:51:00
I think Lucas is a valuble senior player for us and a model pro.

Does any of the Eds or reds know if he is due a testimonial?

He has to be there over 10 years now.

Ed001 has said Demirbay is of interest as well, so apparently we're looking at midfielders in addition to Keita.

MK Hazard's biggest total for Lille was 22 in all competitions. The closest he's come is 19 in 14-15, not far off.

Hazard has easily lived up to expectation, Martial I'd argue has had ups and downs but has proved himself a good player. Origi has shown himself to be what he was a £10m pound striker, decent not spectacular.

Lacazette is suffering some poor form but give him some time, he's as much a sufferer of the state of Arsenal football club as he is taking time to adapt.

I don't think it's far to just lump all these Ligue 1 players in the same bracket and say "look! they're not that good! "

The Spanish league isn't to blame. To even suggest that is ridiculous.

The reason player prices have gone up is that clubs have more money to spend due to increased revenues from sponsorship, TV money etc.

There might well be clubs that implode because they overspend in the expectation that the revenues keep increasing.

Fantastic player but I think Edwards and Klopp would know to steer clear with his injury record.

Henderson, Solanke, Ox, Milner, Trent, Gomez, Lallana, Robertson

That's presuming everyone you mentioned leaves we still have 8. Jones, Kent, Ojo don't even count this year as they've been on loan.


{Ed002's Note - Er, no. Maybe you should both go and read the rules.}

Fury us a much better fighter than joshua when fit. And Ed if we ever have an event in UAE I'll let you know. It doesn't stretch out to Vegas we got a few comps to ggg v canelo last year. We have a small hall show at the York Hall this weekend with a couple of our big up and coming guys. I'll be at Frampton donaire in Ireland later in the year and likely Warrington v Selby unless someone else covers it.


{Ed001's Note - there is quite a big boxing scene over here, we get to see a lot of Amir Khan as he is trying to establish a gym here. Though most here are more into MMA.}

Ed I actually work in boxing both on the promotion and reporting side. I'll just tell you that a lot of judges are purely incompetent rather than fixed nowadays. I also get free tickets to lots of big events if you're ever interested pass on your email and I'll let you know.


{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't argue with you mate, but it is difficult to get over that fixed belief as we all know fighters that have been offered money to throw fights.

Do those events stretch to the UAE mate? I am out here for my health (sun and sea air) and lately my liver has been playing up so doubt I will be back in the UK for a while.}

Think he'll be fine, he was playing quite well before the Moscow game and the Everton game seems to affected his play a bit.

He's still trying, just needs a bit of time and a good game and I'm sure he'll be raring to go.

We rotate enough that he'll be an important part of the squad.

I think John Achterberg is as much of a problem as anyone else. His arrival coincides with Reina's dip in form. Mignolet hasn't really improved since coming in and Karius is a bit shaky.

I think Karius could be a really good keeper but it's clear that the position will be revisited in summer. Mignolet and Ward don't have a future, Karius will need to take his chance now or he will be replaced. Fingers crossed he does, he has all my support.
