Ed2. One for the rumours page.

I saw you did a list the other day on potential outgoings within the Liverpool squad. Are you aware of our plans for Nunez. Is he on the not for sale list or is he available if the right bid comes in?


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

1.) 18 Apr 2024 17:53:46
Okay, cheers Ed2.

Although he has frustrated the life out of many of us of late, including myself. I would like to see how he fairs in a different system and approach.

{Ed002's Note - Sure but he is not looking like a €100M player.}

2.) 18 Apr 2024 18:41:19
Ed2. Sadly I agree. He certainly is not looking like a €100 million player.

3.) 18 Apr 2024 22:23:42
He’s not looking like a £30m player to be honest.

4.) 19 Apr 2024 02:04:15
Don't lie Ron, we all know you love Nunez ;) .

5.) 19 Apr 2024 06:39:34
To be fair to Darwin, he was beginning to look like he could be the real deal - then we inexplicably decided to revert to the late years Wenger / Guardiola lite style of play that was such a disaster last season (presumably to boost Ljinders stock for job interviews or push sales of his book) .

It doesn’t suit him - or most of the squad tbh - and just exposes the weaknesses in his game.

Hopefully Amorim and his coaching staff play to his strengths and we can see the real Captain Chaos again.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 07:45:20
I thought he was doing alright causing problems out in the wing for a bit. But that only seemed to last a few games before he was moved central again. But then, what do I know…?

7.) 19 Apr 2024 08:02:03
If you need an example of what the right or wrong tactics can do for / to a player, look at Amorim’s current star striker - Viktor Gyokores.

In Brighton’s system he looked like a player who’d struggle to get a game on Stanley Park.

But stick him with 2 managers who play to his strengths (Robins at Cov and Amorim at Sporting) and he’s flying.

8.) 19 Apr 2024 08:03:43
He needs to play LW, can't be relied on as the main threat.

9.) 19 Apr 2024 12:50:20
We are overloaded with right footed left wingers.

Drawin is not the best of them.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 18:46:26
Nunez is in the top 5 goals/ assist chart in the top 5 leagues of Europe, which is not a walk in the park, however his easy misses have cost us points, and his erratic nature does not seem to be improving.



21 Aug 2023 11:42:24
Ed2. Has Liverpool looked at Konstantinos Koulierakis the young centre back that plays for POAK in the Greek Super League?

The lad looks a real talent but I understand AC Milan are very much interested. Seeing if there is a possibility for us to make a deal happen.


{Ed002's Note - No, he would not get a WP for the Premier League.}

1.) 21 Aug 2023 14:12:56
Okay cheers ?.

2.) 21 Aug 2023 15:47:07
Football manager? We should look at roony bardgjhi too! and that diouf kid from rennes for midfield!

3.) 21 Aug 2023 18:16:43
@Liveburd031 Football manager? I have a life so don’t have time to be sitting in front of a PC playing football games.



29 Jul 2023 11:12:32
Ed. Do we have any interest in Florentino Luis? Are Benfica even open to selling this summer given the right price or is he in the not for sale category?


{Ed002's Note - Florentino (DM) Scouts continue to watch Benfica but they have no interest in selling Florentino Luis unless his buy out clause is met or nearly matched. Seen by Barcelona as a potential Busquets replacement, but, too expensive although they would look to include a player or two.Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool spoke with his agent last summer. Manchester City want to upgrade Kalvin Phillips and Florentino fits the bill. For Liverpool he would realistically be a Fabinho replacement but they are looking at others so can realistically be discounted. PSG were interested but have moved for Ugarte so they can be discounted. Napoli, Arsenal and Milan offer less likely options although with Tonali now departing Milan we may see an increase of interest in him but at nothing close to his buy out clause and they will want to include players. Wildcard would be Chelsea but they have a much preferred option. His sale would also be dependent on buying a replacement and the one they have in mind is edging toward a move elsewhere.}

1.) 29 Jul 2023 12:08:08
Cheers Ed2. Much appreciated ?.

2.) 29 Jul 2023 13:06:07
Isn’t his buy out clause about £100m. That’s going to put a lot of clubs off.

3.) 30 Jul 2023 12:22:25
If we are signing any player for 100m this season, it should be Gvardiol.

I know, Ed02. It's not going to happen.



15 May 2022 14:28:23

A lot has been said about Jude Bellingham and his next destination for the 2023/ 2024 season. However, I have seen a few outlets reporting that we are interested in his younger brother Jobe Bellingham. Can you shed any light on whether this is true or which clubs are looking at him?


{Ed002's Note - He is a 16 year old kiddie - I would need to ask around.}

1.) 15 May 2022 22:26:57
No problem. Cheers Ed2.

2.) 16 May 2022 09:34:23
Not wishing to be cynical but clever move by the club if looking ahead to tempting big brother Bellingham over next year.

3.) 16 May 2022 10:52:52
like bowen but would only be an option if salah left.
liverpool have raided relegated teams before (robertson, wijnaldum, shaqiri) .
could raphinha be a target if leeds go down?



27 May 2021 18:59:28
Ed2. Respect your opinion on transfers. Daily and Sunday Express seem to think the club, or should I say Michael Edwards is scheduled to meet Bissouma's agent tomorrow. Can we chalk this down to the media selling a story knowing we have an interest in him or is there some truth to this?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that three interested sides (there may be others) have spoken with Michael N'Cho about the player and two are serious options that will see if a deal can be reached. I don't know what his plans are for tomorrow.}

1.) 27 May 2021 21:07:25
Hey Alonso, Fabrizio confirmed today definite interest from Liverpool and Arsenal. Says that he's not first choice for Arsenal (looking at another style of midfielder) I suspect Buendia, Odegaard, Aouar etc.

Ed002 may I ask what sides are interested and the two serious options that Bissouma has? I didn't realise negotiations had moved so that concrete options were available. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Why do I have to keep explaining that Liverpool and Arsenal are very interested. It is particularly tiresome.}

2.) 27 May 2021 22:19:22
Thanks for time Ed2, much appreciated.

3.) 28 May 2021 08:57:23
Apologies Ed002. Note taken - Liverpool and Arsenal like him!

A bit off topic but Liverpool have just released a video on their official YouTube channel titled The Reds Roundtable. It has Klopp, Pep, Alex (Academy Director), Elliott and Gakpo.

0:41-1:35 was emotional. Yes I'm excited for the future and yes I feel it's time to move in a different direction under new leadership. That doesn't make me less of a supporter or unappreciated of the great work Klopp has done. That being said, watching that part of the video got me emotional. I am going to miss Klopp. So many great memories. I will never forget the night we won the Champions League, nor the day we won the league. He made all of us walk with our heads held high during the 2017/ 2018-2020 years, as we were simply unplayable.

Wish him and his family all the best for the future!


1.) 10 May 2024 15:08:30
Just saw the vid on my youtube feed. going to watch that, for sure. As for the way you feel/ felt during that 3 years span of 2017 till 2020, you as spot on. Those 3 years where we became Champions of Everywhere and undoubtedly the BEST team in the world.

I remember those times like they happened a few months ago and remember vividly how I felt and how proud of my club and manager were at the time. If we have anywhere near an era/ period like that under Slot, I will be over the moon. Thanks for all the great memories, Herr Jurgen! You will definitely be missed.

2.) 10 May 2024 15:40:56
Alonso have you seen Klopps presser from today when he arrived late.

Thats a pretty good one.

3.) 10 May 2024 16:11:46
@Oli Definitely a good watch Oli. They discuss many topics from his tenure, to the academy and it was good hearing from Gakpo and Elliott about the path from youth footy to becoming a pro.

@JK23 Hope you’re well mate. I haven’t yet but will do ?.

4.) 10 May 2024 22:58:34
Klopps interviews with Kelly and the round table have made me forget the pain of the last few weeks. The man is about more than trophies. It’s about how to act and live your life. I’m grateful we had him for 9 years. The trophies he has won mean more because of who he is and how he has acted. Legend.

5.) 11 May 2024 08:37:25
The man's a legend, regardless of how we have played or arguable underperformed due to tactics in the last 12-28 months. Even if he hadn't of won everything during his time with us, we are in considerably better shape now then what we were when he arrived, gone from also rans to genuine competitors. That's his legacy and now it's up to the new management to ensure that effort doesn't go to waste.



25 Feb 2024 17:52:02
I'm proud of the boys. Got a little teary seeing VVD emotional at the final whistle. Proud of our captain. His first trophy as captain and many more to come.




26 Jan 2024 12:02:17
Ed1. For me, I love what Xabi Alonso is doing in Germany and been quite vocal about that. I didn't think the time would come as soon as this summer to think about it. So my question is. Do you see the club bringing in Alonso?

To Klopp. All I can say is thank you for the memories. You made me hold my head up high amongst any fans in the league. I remember crying with pride the night we won the League. You bought us every trophy possible. What I hope to see is the boys push on and see him off by winning the quadruple!



{Ed001's Note - I just don't see any other candidate out there.}

1.) 26 Jan 2024 12:31:03
Best way to put is he’s a generational talent and character. Certainly no one who is not replaceable. its really tough recognising a replacement in all honesty, but if the club has known since November they must already be considering candidates or at least have a short list.

Would Xabi be in that list I really don’t know.

2.) 26 Jan 2024 12:32:39
Ed1. I hope you’re right. He is the obvious choice and hope the club are aware of him.

Just in complete shock about this news to be honest, and the only comfort would be Alonso taking over.

3.) 26 Jan 2024 12:33:18
Alonso IMO, the real question should be: Who else is out there that can come in esp. one who knows the club and it's supporters and the fabric of the club on a deeper level other than Alonso right now judging by the madness he is doing at Leverkusen right now?

4.) 26 Jan 2024 12:33:20
He's certainly the best candidate if not the only 1, just hope pep doesn't get the role.
True legend Jurgen. Above all players past and present. True legend.

5.) 26 Jan 2024 14:09:02
Pep is off, Magico.



30 Sep 2023 21:07:45
Despite the atrocious and quite frankly inexcusable decisions I'm proud to be a red and proud of my team. It took a last minute own goal for Spurs to beat a 9 man team. We pick ourselves up and we go again and show why we can be title contenders. YNWA.


1.) 30 Sep 2023 21:16:50
Hear hear.

2.) 30 Sep 2023 21:19:24
What happens now, when a legitimate goal is disallowed post VAR check? How was the goal even disallowed? What will be the consequences i wonder.

3.) 30 Sep 2023 22:21:40
The refs ref the refs.
Oh we made a mistake. sorry. and move on to make more next week.

Call them out and you get banned. So they have a free pass to be as incompetent as they want.

4.) 30 Sep 2023 22:47:29
If Harry Kane can file an appeal and have a goal that was credited to someone else credited to him, why can't Luis Diaz file an appeal to have a goal credited that was not credited? There's ample factual evidence that would back his claim.



16 Sep 2023 14:49:42
Szoboszlai is only 22 years old. Just let that sink in.


1.) 16 Sep 2023 20:26:12
Did he have a good game?

*All I know is Joyce is very reliable when it comes to Liverpool affairs. So it looks like our next coach is Arne Slot

Ed2. Has been mentioning Arne Slot from the beginning.

Paul Joyce tweeted 2 hours ago “Feyenoord coach Arne Slot interesting Liverpool. “

Fabrizio Romano just tweeted the following “One more direct contact will take place soon between Arne Slot and Liverpool board to discuss more key points of the project.

Slot, keen on Liverpool job and concrete option as he’s highly rated by #LFC. ”

I don’t know much about him as I don’t watch the Dutch league. All I know is he turned down both Spurs and Chelsea in the last few years.

All I know is when Joyce is very reliable when it comes to our Liverpool affairs. So it looks like our next coach is Arne Slot.

Ed2. I am trying to understand this. I have previously asked why Klopp still has involvement in future transfer decisions, despite being on the way out. You informed me it’s because his opinion is valued. But, if we really wanted Amorim or another manager for that matter and this is causing problems in appointing them - then I’m scratching my head as to why Edwards and Hughes would allow that to continue. Wouldn’t common sense mean they would put a stop to that completely? I mean, great manager and legend he is, that is not in doubt. But talent spotting has reportedly never been his strong point. If I’m missing something here let me know because to me, it doesn’t make sense.


{Ed002's Note - Edwards and to a lesser extent Hughes do not pick the players. Hunter and Fallows do.}

22 Apr 2024 19:39:10
Alonso and Amorim were my first choice. I’ll be honest, I’m not keen on De Zerbi or the other names mentioned. But I have a feeling that we might go with De Zerbi. Tactically he is very good, which you only have to see the brand of football they were playing before this season. And the way managers, not to mention players past and present speak about him. It’s his combative nature that I’m worried about. I will have to trust Edwards as he has brought in players not so favoured who turned out to be brilliant for us. If it is De Zerbi, maybe he will be the same.

Klopp is a beautiful human being. I’m not going to lie I got emotional during the send off after the match. The guy literally sang the song of Arne Slot and got the fans to join in. Then urged the fans to get behind the new gaffer.

Klopp, it was a privilege to have you as a manager. Thank you for making us fans walk with our heads held high. Thank you for the Champions League. Thank you for the Premier League. Thank you for all the other trophies we won. Thank you for some unforgettable nights. And thank you for turning us from doubters to believers.

YNWA Jurgen Norbert Klopp.

You can work on speed and power. Just have a look at a similar case in Orkun Kokcu and the specialised training program Arne Slot put him on because he knew the technical ability was there. However, the pace and power was to play as an 8 was lacking. Kokcu actually went onto have his best season and Feyenoord ended up winning the league. Which incidentally earned him a move to Benfica. So if Slot fancies Elliott as a 10 he will give him the best tools to effectively play that position.

One thing I have gathered is Arne Slot is well known for his tactical ability and Pep Guardiola like obsession for studying the opposition as well as improving his players. Also he likes playing either academy players or young players who are signed. Another thing is he is know for is training players into positions they weren't originally known for, and to great success mind. So don’t be surprised if we see that at Liverpool.

Now I’m not saying we will be winning multiple trophies right out the gate as patience is required. But the more I read about Arne Slot, the more I understand why Edwards chose him to be Klopp’s successor.

@iwillbered. You can praise Klopp without bizarrely taking a swipe at Edwards and Ward. I mean, whether you like it or not Edwards alongside Klopp of course was heavily involved in our successful period. Also, not sure what’s strange about Edwards fixing our structure, which I may add was not there prior to his appointment. Each to their own I guess.

@Ron Keague. James Pearce who was the first to break the news has said the following regarding Wards’s Technical Director Role.

Ward will oversee player development across FSG's football operations. Responsibilities include oversight of LFC academy, loan department, group wide elite player development strategies and establishment of FSG’s new football innovation department.

Ward will also preside over the management of football operations at any club added to FSG stable. Marques, who will report to Ward, is regarded as an expert in player development, career pathways, coaching methodologies and performance analysis.
