Hello ed2 hope u well? Do u know of any lfc interest in Colwell of chelsea? R chelsea stance on selling him? We rumoured to be interested in him both now and previously. I checked search here but anything on him is going back a year.


{Ed002's Note - There was prior interest but Chelsea have no intention of selling regardless of some remaining interest from elsewhere.}

1.) 10 May 2024 18:12:47
Thanks for response. Would prefer branthwaite myself but Colwell looked good as well.

2.) 10 May 2024 18:23:51
Ed, I've read your summary on CB options that Liv is interested. It seems like there is no clear first choice for CB. Do you know if the club have their first choice CB? Or is it still to early to know?

{Ed002's Note - Inacio would have been first choice. Hincapie would be on the list. David Hancko would perhaps be an option.}

3.) 11 May 2024 13:33:56
Can’t understand why we didn’t sign Gvardiol last summer. We missed the boat on so many great young players that moved the last few years in positions we needed players. Gvardiol, Bellingham, Haaland, Tchouameni to name a few.

4.) 11 May 2024 16:36:31
Maybe because city did ??‍♂️.

5.) 12 May 2024 01:58:54
@OneKiss mostly because he didn’t want to sign for us. Nice you kept it under your hat until the last but one game of the season.



12 Feb 2024 10:10:47
Hello ed2 hope u well. U have said previously that lfc one of clubs to approach alonso repersentives to see what's his situation is next season. Would u be able to say who other clubs are? Reason I ask is I think he head and shoulders best candidate for us and wondering who competition will be to get him.


{Ed002's Note - Xabi Alonso (C) A popular choice for clubs and having a great season at Bayer Leverkusen, but very inexperienced, although there will be interest in him from Liverpool, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester United. Has made no secret of a desire to follow Ancelotti at Real Madrid - but that won't be until 2026 so they can be discounted at this time although he has the support of Carlo Ancelotti. If he were to win the league this season it would likely make it very difficult for him to leave. There are no clauses in his contract allowing him to leave to join them.}

1.) 12 Feb 2024 10:25:21
Didn't he said that he would like to manage Liv at some point in his career?

2.) 12 Feb 2024 10:37:07
Can’t see him coming to us. Probably stay another year then go to Madrid. He more than likely has a bigger affiliation to them than us, and if that’s the case then would you want him for a season or two? I wouldn’t I want someone who prepared to stay.

3.) 12 Feb 2024 13:13:03
Thanks for response. Not be that simple to get him then. Hope we do as I'm not too sure of the quality of the alternatives.

4.) 12 Feb 2024 13:34:17
Am not sure he would have a bigger affiliation to Madrid over us with this statement he made when playing for them.
am still a Liverpool fan and will be forever, absolutely" and that he will raise his Liverpool-born son as a Red supporter.

5.) 12 Feb 2024 14:01:14
His first choice is very much Liverpool going from the recordings I have seen. His family support Liverpool.

6.) 12 Feb 2024 14:46:47
@ Grino. I don’t think he would choose another premier league team over us if we was in for him too. That’s the level of Isupport for us I think he has. But us v Madrid different story.

7.) 12 Feb 2024 14:48:42
Not only is he coming to liverpool, but his club are now putting out feelers for their next manager. He will fit right in, and take us to another level, heard that he is also bringing over his best centre back, but not 3 players that has been mentioned.

8.) 12 Feb 2024 15:03:21
Ed02, why would winning the league make it difficult for him to leave? Just curious.

{Ed002's Note - There will be a huge push to keep him at the club where he is very happy if he wins the league.}

9.) 12 Feb 2024 15:03:41
Real Madrid are the only thing preventing us from landing Xabi IMO. Carlo until 2026 means we lock him in this summer or miss out (or we wait until Madrid are finished with him) .

Ed02 funny you say that. I actually thought winning the Bundesliga would make it easier for him to depart. What a hero to take them from relegation zone to champions in under two years. Especially for a club often mocked for bottling it. I don't see how he tops that as Bayern and even Dortmund will likely be stronger next season and i expect the opposite for Leverkuson with so many eyes on their players. But then again l, he might want to stay and ride that wave and see what he can do with them in the CL. Just my opinion

Amorins Sporting are also playing serious football. Really like them and he seems to have a way about. Maybe a good 2nd choice.

10.) 12 Feb 2024 15:27:21
L8 he is a Liverpool fan so I think he would love to manage us didn’t only leave because of a fall out with Rafa when he tried forcing him out of the club to replace his Barry.
I think he will be the Liverpool manager next season but only time will tell.

11.) 12 Feb 2024 15:44:09
From what I am hearng it's a done deal.

12.) 12 Feb 2024 15:46:49
There are countless interviews on YouTube where he says Liverpool is his second home and that we hold the fondest memories in his career. His family are also Liverpool fans. Not me saying it but it’s there for everyone to see. He also said he hopes our paths cross and he gets to manage us one day. If we approach him, I think it would be extremely difficult for him to turn us down. Let’s see what happens though.

13.) 12 Feb 2024 16:42:18
I can’t see him choosing Man U or Chelsea if LFC are interested.
Let’s be honest, Chelsea is a bit of a merry-go-round, they go through managers quicker than we go through Prime Ministers.
Man U - a club in a very long transition.

14.) 12 Feb 2024 21:41:12
We need a Manager who has suffered ups and downs, somwone who has walked through the storms. Alonso has none of that.

15.) 12 Feb 2024 21:46:35
Xabi Alonso is coming to Anfield as our next manager……. That’s my opinion……. No inside knowledge on the matter……. but I have a similar feeling to the time when we brought Klopp in… I just kinda knew he would come…… and that turned out as I had hoped

It’s just meant to be.

16.) 12 Feb 2024 22:30:20
Leek, based on your logic, who would you suggest? Sam Allardyce?

17.) 12 Feb 2024 22:31:52
Can’t see anyone but Xabi.

18.) 12 Feb 2024 22:41:18
I don't see him at another PL side if Liverpool are interested. I can't think of a manager who has moved clubs to a direct rival club so Bayern would be a contentious move, as would Barcelona if he has ambitions in Madrid. My guess is he moves to Liverpool or stays at Bayer.

19.) 13 Feb 2024 06:17:52
I think Leek would love Big Sam at the club, so he can say how unambitious FSG are. Personally I'd go for Neil Warnock.

FSG OUT. So unambitious.

20.) 13 Feb 2024 07:40:30
Good morning ed002,
Just our of interest, who would be your first choice to replace Klopp?


{Ed002's Note - I think Alonso would be a good choice. I expect Klopp would support Julian Nagelsmann.}

21.) 13 Feb 2024 10:19:48
Hi eds, i would choose Julian Nagelsmann ahead of Alonso. Alonso could crumble badly if face with adversity e. g losing league by 1 pt or losing CL final, or faced with injury crisis.

22.) 13 Feb 2024 10:48:44
Alonso is a humble, quiet man, who I believe will be lead by a longer term vision. If BL win the league and get into the CL as champs, surely he will stay for another season.
At the same time, it seems clear that LFC and RM are his two dream tickets as a manager, and perhaps a long stint at each is what beckons.

23.) 13 Feb 2024 12:17:02
@ Centrepoint, humility is nice but not required for top manager. Is Paisley a humble man? He said the" only 2 teams Merseyside joke. "

We need a serial winner, someone who has suffered failure, who can pick up pieces if things don't go as planned and go get the next one.

{Ed001's Note - that wasn't Paisley. Please don't make up nonsense out of ignorance. Paisley was one of the most humble men ever. Your ignorance is astonishing.}

24.) 13 Feb 2024 17:54:31
Bayern will do what they do best and poach the best players from them to make it a one horse race again so pointless him staying if that happens.

25.) 14 Feb 2024 06:27:41
No thankyou to Julian Nagelsmann. His wife couldn't trust him, so neither will I.

26.) 14 Feb 2024 18:03:37
Has your account been hacked leek? You never used to post such nonsense in the past. Or am I mistaken?

With regards the new manager, I, like most of is would love to see Alonso.
He’d be given time due to the affiliation the fans have with him. He plays progressive football, Bayer are always looking to play forwards and move up the pitch. The formations he uses would very much suit the players Liverpool have in the squad right now and on top of all of that I think he’ll become a great manager.
Only thing is I would hate for the expectation to be so great that if, for whatever reason, he didn't join, where does that leave the club? I personally like Nagelsmann, has a touch of the Brendan Rodgers about him but I think a very good coach. Outside of those two Im a little lost for candidates that aren't an even bigger gamble.
Certainly going to be a very important summer in the short to medium term for the club.

27.) 14 Feb 2024 19:39:02
Whenever we hype things up such as Bellingham being a shoe-in, it all goes a bit Pete Tong. However we have a habit of getting a rough diamond who goes on to be a great fit. Alonso is a great fit but i cannot help feeling that he will either stay where he is and take Bayer Leverkusen on their Champions League journey or one of the Spanish giants nick him. Hopefully he comes. This may depend on who we recruit as Director of Football, as they will need to be singing off the same hymn sheet. I take it as Red that the owners will frank the plan. At the moment let's concern ourselves with the task in hand and leave the powers that be to get the job done, whatever that will be. They have been mostly spot on over the last 10 years so trust them.

28.) 14 Feb 2024 19:54:00
Scouse john, depends if he likes the loyalty and love of the Liverpool fans or take the risk of the Madrid fans turning on him and having 2 years at Madrid if he can, he would take the job at Liverpool if offered, we need to offer him it, i'm sure we are working hard on it, winning Bundesliga would be the perfect send off, no one else gives a feeling that would soften the blow of Klopp going, can't think of anyone who comes close?



07 Sep 2023 18:17:08
Hello ed2 hope u keeping well. Do u know why Saudis have waited so late into window to bid for salah? Salah is obviously interested as they wouldn't have bid in 1st place if he wasnt. Seems to me if they hadve come with these sorts of bids 2 months liverpool wouldn't have been able to refuse it as they would've then been able to reinvest it in other areas. Bidding now lfc have no time to then use funds to bolster team.


{Ed002's Note - They previously made their interest known and have returned after having a bid rejected. I have explained my expectations and I stand by those. Another year at Liverpool then a move.

1.) 07 Sep 2023 19:05:43
Ed002 if I may, I understand you think a move next summer seems likey and probably best for all parties if I'm honest. My question is transfer fee. I understand he will be a year older and only 1 year left on contract but would you think lfc could still negotiate a 100m fee or close to?

{Ed002's Note - Possibly.}

2.) 08 Sep 2023 06:50:14
Agree totally. This is definitely mos last season. Quick question if you have time Ed.
Obviously we would struggle to replace like for like so probably would look to replace output over a number of positions. If you had 200m who would you buy?

{Ed002's Note - What makes you think Liverpool will have £200M to spend on players?}

3.) 08 Sep 2023 08:53:05
I thought they only bidding last fortnight or so. Yes I think next summer he will go as well . I'm glad we didn't take money as we've started season well and in each of 4 games we've improved steadily. I think selling a starting player could upset the applecart

4.) 08 Sep 2023 09:46:36
We have 200m cos we didn’t spend 115m on Caicedo and we’re going to get 400m from Saudis. So that’s 200m ed2 ?

For Mo, I’m genuinely surprised there isn’t more chat about him leaving the worlds elite league. When we were debating the merits of extending MO’s contract, some fans made the case that he could be performing in the top leagues into his late 30s like Messi and CR7. Where’s that chat gone? Does Mo not have that ambition?

5.) 08 Sep 2023 10:24:58
Faith, I imagine there’s somewhat more factors to his desire than playing in our league alone, family etc.

6.) 08 Sep 2023 10:39:01
Why don't the Saudis just but lfc and have done.

7.) 08 Sep 2023 11:10:23
How do we know he doesn't have that desire? hearing on here he's leaving the last 6 years and yet he's still here doing Mo things.

8.) 08 Sep 2023 11:49:17
Well if he left to go to the Saudi league then we’d know he doesn’t have the desire to be the best anymore.

I’m just saying I’m surprised that there is very little chatter about his ambition over earning a payday. Especially given that much of the argument to extend him was that he’d deliver at an elite level for the duration of the contract.

9.) 08 Sep 2023 12:29:45
I think one factor in if he wants to leave is the chance we have of winning the very top trophies again.
And also Mo’s fitness levels as well.
If he thinks he’s still got another year after this one of performing at the top level and with a realistic chance of bagging one last big trophy, I think he might stay longer.
I know everyone’s got their price but I always thought Mo’s main ambition was to win the big prizes rather than be a museum piece in some desert.
If he thinks he can realistically play till his mid 30s and beyond like ronaldo then there’s plenty of time to make the lucrative but career ending move.
Just my thoughts anyway, I’m sure the club are already looking and semi prepared for his departure whenever that may be. All good things must come to an end and I’m looking forward to see how the club adapts and moves on, we have sometimes done better when a superstar moves on (coutinho) and we have sometimes messed it up (suarez) so it will be interesting to see how well the club copes (or doesn’t)

10.) 08 Sep 2023 18:12:29
We have to stop thinking that Saudi Arabia isn't serious about football anymore, they seem serious about taking over everything else in business terms, this part of the world and quite a bit of the West are on its knees in financial terms in comparison! Times are changing why wouldn't the football world?

11.) 08 Sep 2023 18:21:23
There is no way of 200 mil for Salah with a year left on contract. Its not rocket science so stop wasting the Eds' time.

12.) 08 Sep 2023 22:09:04
What’s to stop Mo extending his contract at Liverpool? I’d say after this season he might well have another 2 or 3 years at the top and might still want to challenge for honours in Europe. There are, potentially, a number of possibilities. For all we know this might turn out to be his best season yet.

13.) 09 Sep 2023 21:45:49
I’m pretty sure centre backs will be the main area of focus next summer as well as replacing Mo.

14.) 09 Sep 2023 23:12:11
Faith, Mo Salah is quite possibly the greatest Muslim player of all time, and has an opportunity to be a star as a muslim country emerges as a football destination.

The draw for both Mo and the Saudis must be immense.

15.) 11 Sep 2023 13:36:54
Quite possibly the greatest Muslim player of all time? I love Salah, but there are Muslim players who'd probably like to have a word with you, about stretching things (even if you're saying possibly) .

Like Zinedine Zidane, Paul Pogba, N'Golo Kante, Mesut Ozil, Karim Benzema, Yaya Touré, Riyad Mahrez, Franck Ribery, Éric Abidal, Ilkay Gundogan, amongst others. Even Sadio would probably like a word with you.

16.) 11 Sep 2023 13:44:09
And just to add, since you brought it up, there is no such thing as an "immense draw". The Gulf Arabs dislike the other Arabs and it's the same vice versa. This narrative of Muslims and Arabs being homogenous and in absolute love with each other is completely false.

But yes, Salah will go over and play over there for the money. Just like any other professional footballer.

17.) 15 Sep 2023 04:03:17
I always found it strange that everyone assumes Salah is drawn to Saudi Arabia. Tons of people get rich and leave Saudi Arabia for the UK and elsewhere. I have no idea what Salah thinks about Saudi Arabia or how much he enjoys living in Liverpool or anywhere else. It's strange as people have different things that push their buttons. Shouldn't Jordan Henderson be drawn toward not going to SA according to the "Muslim/ Not Muslim" formula? And yet, Salah remains and Henderson does not.

Everybody ranks the variables differently. For all we know Mo Salah really does not want to play in SA. There's every possibility that's true.



30 Jun 2023 18:19:13
Hello ed2 hope u well. Do u know did we receive a loan fee for carvalho from Leipzig?


{Ed002's Note - Yes there will be.}

1.) 30 Jun 2023 20:22:00
Good thought there would be. Thanks.

2.) 30 Jun 2023 20:22:00
Good thought there would be. Thanks.



01 Jun 2023 19:45:40
Hello ed2 hope you keeping well. How do you see the man city issue with the charges that is put against them. do you think it will run on 2-4 years as is being reported? Do you think they will be found guilty? I don't know all that much about it bar what I've read, senic in me says even if they guilty they have enough money and power to run this threw the courts for years. In saying that 115 or so charges is an awful lot, the premier league I presume wouldn't have charged them with that amount without being confident some would stick.


{Ed002's Note - Charges will be dealt with individually so it will take time.}

1.) 01 Jun 2023 23:08:57
I would imagine a big fine, their legal team will be untouchable.

2.) 02 Jun 2023 00:50:06
Ed002 is correct, it will take time, time barring….

3.) 02 Jun 2023 09:09:28
Basically, no one knows anything about timelines or outcomes and when there is a conclusion then little to no tangible punishment will be wrought. We should all just forget about this as anything other than an extra bill for their legal department.

The only suitable outcome would be relegation from the football league IMO to work their way up again, seeing how many of their stars would stay, forced to start again properly etc. If that doesn't deter then nothing will.

4.) 02 Jun 2023 11:08:05
Should Man City be found guilty after the evidence hearings, then, when the wrong doing was found to have happened and season that preceded that wrong doing, example, summer of 2022 - then all titles in the 2022 -23 period should be stripped imo.

Again that’s an example, any season that was effected by over spending which gave advantage through purchases and wages, as above stripped along with the financial gains of if any cup or title wins also.

5.) 02 Jun 2023 11:23:47
No doubt just enough time for the statute of limitations again.

6.) 02 Jun 2023 11:35:27
Do fines come out of the club's FFP qualifying budget or the bottomless pit of the state-backed Group?

7.) 02 Jun 2023 12:55:49
Danny there are no legal timelines in this case.

8.) 02 Jun 2023 11:56:31
I don't think the FA charges have a statute of limitations so they can't go down that route again. It'll most likely just be a fine.

9.) 02 Jun 2023 12:05:37
I'm admittedly cynical about this whole situation. I don't think anything will come of it. City have too much money to allow it to happen. Yes, very cynical view.

10.) 02 Jun 2023 12:45:38
Great point Pelican.

11.) 02 Jun 2023 15:59:46
@1jj let's hope that stands true but seen it said they are arguing rule changes that happend after they cooked so prob trying to get off on technicality again with accounts that have more fiction then harry potter series.

12.) 02 Jun 2023 11:56:31

17 Jun 2024 20:31:51
Hello ed1 hope u well. Have u seen much of jaros, the goalie on loan in Austria? with us looking likely to need a no.2 as I presume kelleher will go would he be good enough do u think? He has won double in Austria as starting keeper and has made Czech squad for euros so he must be doing something right. Considering how often alisson gets injured it's a v important position for us a good no.2.


{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen much of him at all sorry. He is highly rated but I expect him to want to continue getting first team football.}

1.) 18 Jun 2024 03:16:43
I think that Jaros has shown that he is a good keeper that should definitely be playing at a higher level than the Austrian league. But he should be cautious though, about wanting to move to another team for first team football. He is still fairly young for a keeper and I appreciate his hunger on wanting to play regularly. But there are so many players like him that made a move too early or made a wrong move, and are now languishing. Danny Ward springs to mind. A decent up and coming keeper who moved to Leicester early in hopes of first team football and has been second choice ever since.

{Ed001's Note - I meant on loan mate. I expect him to move out on loan again for the season.}

2.) 18 Jun 2024 07:06:05
Thanks for response ed1. A Pity as he should remember he will get fa cup+ league cup matches with lfc and going by allisson previous injury record he will prob get some league+ maybe champ league games as well.

{Ed001's Note - that's not really enough for a young keeper to progress. He needs to be playing every week.}

3.) 18 Jun 2024 09:16:49
Its a difficult one because if Kelleher leaves we need a keeper that will be understudy to arguably the best keeper in the world but then also be good enough to step up and likely play quite a few games.

Kelleher made 26 appearances last season due to Alison's injuries.

4.) 18 Jun 2024 09:29:18
Ahh, then that makes sense Ed. I thought you meant he would look to move permanently in search of first team football. Going out on loan again would be the safer option for his development although I was hoping that he would stay behind and take Kelleher's spot in the squad if Kelleher goes. Pitaluga seems like he has some way to go before he's ready so we would need to buy a 2nd GK if Jaros decides to go on loan.

5.) 18 Jun 2024 12:41:39
If Alisson is injured as often as some some reckon, why would Kelleher want to leave?

6.) 18 Jun 2024 17:13:46
VV is right we ain’t winning the league particularly if we don’t supplement the squad. We’ve won one title in over 30 years… there’s a reason.

7.) 18 Jun 2024 18:56:47
Man City, Kippers?



12 May 2024 10:41:27
Hello ed1 hope u keeping well. What u make of young danns? I impressed what I seen of him, although that hasn't been an awful lot, looks like a goalscorer. I v surprised he wasn't used last month r so as he looked to me that he exactly type of player we needed at the time, somebody to stick ball in net. our forwards at the time looked like they had the wait of the world on them, somebody like danns, fresh and young with no baggage would've been well worth a go imo.
I know he suffered concussion against forest which ruled him out for a while.


{Ed001's Note - I am also surprised he was not given more opportunities, he looks a genuine goalsniffer with a decent link up play too. I really like the look of him, even though on first glance he seems a bit awkward and gangly. It does look like he is still growing into his body, so I wouldn't want him to be starting every week, but he looks ready for more time than he is getting. Especially with Jota out, we really lack someone who can actually be relied upon to score.}

1.) 12 May 2024 10:57:35
Was crying out for him to come on vs United in that final 10 minutes.

2.) 12 May 2024 11:02:19
Danns is a very good, young propect with the extremely little i've seen of him. The goals he has scored for the senior and U21 games are quite tasty in terms of his composure in front of goal. See his goals vs Southhmpton and his goal vs Utd with the U21's with an audacious back heel. He is definitely one to watch out for next season.

3.) 12 May 2024 11:36:26
Thanks for response. Reminds me a bit of Harry kane when he 1st broke into spurs team as a youngster.

4.) 12 May 2024 11:56:52
This is one thing I hope the new manager picks up on - the youngsters, id be prioritizing them from the off especially him, Bradley and quansah. Give them their chances or we'll lose them because all three are that good, they could go pretty much anywhere in this league right now so I hope they keep here and get their chances.

5.) 12 May 2024 13:06:06
Bradley and Quansah have been starting. They and Danns wouldn't be going to City and Arsenal and starting.
I'm pretty sure about that.

6.) 12 May 2024 13:11:44
Salah the youngsters have really stepped up this season.

Was said the other day that the two seasons Klopp has used the kids the most are the 2 seasons we have been in the Europa.

Next season in the CL we will likely have to go full strength every game. That leaves the Fa and League cup but that’s all based on the draws.

Over recent seasons we seem to get drawn against Premier league opposition quite a bit whilst City get drawn at home to the dog and duck local pub team.

7.) 12 May 2024 13:54:51
Out of interest, does anyone know if slot uses youngsters? or is he more of a veteran type coach?
I'm surprised now that we've got nothing to play for we haven't seen some of the youngsters more, especially with some of the dips in form.

8.) 12 May 2024 15:10:01
Slot has a very good record in working with young players. Infact, he has never signed anyone over the age of 24 while at Feyenoord if I remember correctly. However, that is something you expect with managers in the Dutch league, so it would be interesting to see if he tweaks the approach now given that he has considerably more money and pull now. At the same time, I believe his use of youth must have been an important factor while hiring him.

Koumas looks like a player too, more of a Beardsley type player but can certainly score. Needs more first team play.

10.) 12 May 2024 17:13:39
Beardsley was a top player. Him, Barnes and Aldridge were brilliant for us. What a summer that was for us signing those three after selling Ian Rush.
I'd be thrilled if Koumas turns out half as good as Beardsley.

Edd001 i think klopp now has regrets on team selection. His comment of regret on not playing elliot more was very surprising because we've all been wondering WHY. He never gave a reason why but i think ultimately loyalty to other players plus the way we were playing cost us. Even young bradley getting injured, the comment klopp made comparing him to trent i thought was wrong. I don't think he's got it right with the younger players who were actually getting us through the tough period. He disregarded them once the "stars" returned and those same stars let us down.

12.) 12 May 2024 19:03:43
If we'd played Elliott more I reckon we finish third and having won the Carabao Cup.
It wouldn't change our League position or have kept us in the Europa.
This is not a slight against because I like him but he's not a player that would have changed the course of our season.
Not yet anyway.

13.) 12 May 2024 19:18:59
He looks like a member of Bone thugz and harmony as well as a good footballer. Fingers crossed he will get a chance to impress in pre season along with others. Hoping Bajcetic can stay injury free he needs minutes on the pitch that’s for sure. Exciting times ahead out with the old in with the new.

14.) 13 May 2024 01:08:53
Mizer, I wouldn't read too much into what Klopp said, about not playing Elliott more. If I recall correctly, said the same thing about Minamino as well the season we won the Carling Cup.

{Ed001's Note - and he was right about Minamino - he should have played him more.}

15.) 13 May 2024 04:12:31
And I agree with that Ed, Minamino should have played more. Just pointing out that there is precedence to Klopp saying that he should have played xxx player more often, so it is not all that surprising that he is saying so again. It is more surprising that he has not learnt from it though, choosing instead to be "loyal" to players who are under-performing.

16.) 13 May 2024 11:44:29
Dracred, took the words right out of my mouth cos Klopp did openly say that about Mino and at the time, I was screaming for Klopp to play him more. Mino got a raw deal from Klopp and had he played him more, he could have done more. That's on Klopp. Loyalty will ALWAYS be one of his blind spots, IMO.



21 Apr 2024 09:40:09
Hello ed1 hope u good. Have u seen much of owen beck? Do u see him as a possibility in team/ squad next season if we play wing backs?
I see he has got in to Scottish team of season, which v good achievement playing for a team outside of the old firm . obviously big step up to play for a team 2wards top of prem, he 21 now so u would imagine it now r never for him at lfc. haven't seen anything of him myself.


{Ed001's Note - I think he deserves the chance, I thought we should have considered letting Tsimikas go in the summer to give him a chance. So I defo think he has shown he is capable and ready to play for us. I know it is only Dundee, but he is one of the few players that Rangers and Celtic fans always rave about when he plays against them, so he can handle the big occasion.}

1.) 21 Apr 2024 10:51:55
Will be an opportunity for all squad members to impress the new manager during pre season.

Klopp clearly has the players he likes to start but the slate will be wiped clean.

I think apart from below no one else is a guaranteed starter under the new manager whoever it may be.

Alison world class keeper

Vvd still a world class centre half and unless we buy 2 more world class centre half’s he starts

Trent - 50/ 50 on this one as no idea where new manager sees him playing

Mac - only my opinion but he’s different gravy in our midfield

Salah - but that’s only if he’s even still here.

2.) 21 Apr 2024 13:22:41
Robertson and Beck for next season and Gomez can fill in then I’d go big on repalcing Robertson after next season.

3.) 21 Apr 2024 13:39:26
As an aberdonian I’ve seen beck on several occasions this season live, and I have been very impressed with him, Tommy docherty has been raving about him all season to our old manager derek Mcinnes, and a few other folk I know. He is going to be a real talent.

4.) 21 Apr 2024 14:52:10
Well Ed, it's going to be a clean slate for everyone when the new manger gets in regardless what he may have seen of us this season cos I believe the new guy has already been hired. We shall see.

5.) 21 Apr 2024 21:36:19
I agree JK only 3-4 nailed on starters for next season. If you want to play you better show up.

6.) 22 Apr 2024 10:29:38
@Onekiss - if Beck is good enough to be in the first team squad next season, why do we need to”go big” the following season when we get rid of Robbo? Why don’t we promote Beck as a starter and bring in an understudy to him - perhaps Chambers? Perhaps we can save literally millions eh?

7.) 23 Apr 2024 10:17:42
WDW it depends how good Beck performs. Robertson was the best left back in the world at his peak. If Beck can be that then great.



11 Apr 2024 10:09:19
I'd like to see vvd rested 2nite, played a lot of football recently and I can't see where else in run in we would rest him. definitely need him for all 7 league games and I would think for away games in Europe if we make semi final.


1.) 11 Apr 2024 11:39:07
I'd be looking to give Virgil, Macca and Lucho a break today if possible.

2.) 11 Apr 2024 11:59:37
Cant rest core players away in Europe when it's are best chance at another cup get the win and try rest them elsewhere.

3.) 11 Apr 2024 13:03:32
I think the time for resting key players has gone for this season. Max of 12 matches left this season, every single one of which is either a cup tie or a must win league match.

If we find ourselves in commanding positions with 30 minutes left in a match, there will hopefully be opportunities to reduce the workload for some players, or if we go into the second leg against Atlanta with a large lead from the first leg.

Looking at it now, I wouldn't want to go into any of our remaining matches with van Dijk not starting.

4.) 11 Apr 2024 13:39:21
Fair point mate.

Thing is we can’t afford to slip up in the Europe. Maybe do the thing Klopp did before. First half VVD plays. Then second half Konate plays?

5.) 11 Apr 2024 14:29:09
Looks like Salah and Diaz getting a rest tonight, if rumours are to be true.

6.) 11 Apr 2024 14:52:19
I’d go all out for this trophy now. We took off players in the FA Cup and got Knocked Out.
The league looks a stretch after failing to beat City and United. This is our best shot as it stands.

7.) 11 Apr 2024 16:05:23
This is the only tournament Klopp hasn’t won.

I want this one.

8.) 11 Apr 2024 16:19:29
I would prefer to try and get the job done tonight and them rest them in the second leg if opportunity allows, as that's the start of the run of 4 away games in a row.

If we can leave some at home, I'd prefer that.

9.) 11 Apr 2024 16:31:20
I’d imagine Klopp is going to go as strong as possible as he can now until the end of the season. He has minimum 9 and maximum 12 games left with this squad.

Saying that I expect some rotation tonight and minutes off the bench if possible for the lads returning from injury but I imagine it will be a starting 11 of the nucleus of players that Klopp would use if needed in big games.

Taimikas is an example of a squad player that is outside of that nucleus at the moment and might explain why he is getting no minutes.

10.) 11 Apr 2024 16:45:00
We are at home danny.

11.) 11 Apr 2024 17:08:58
With you on that, RR. That ship may have sailed. Besides, VVD has sat out majority of the EL games this season to keep him fresh for the time of the season when you want to go for the comps. you’re still in. Klopp may go big and try to win the tie from the off.

12.) 11 Apr 2024 18:31:55
think we have to go all out for this match, we usually win at home and its vital that we take a good lead over for the 2nd leg .
out of the FA Cup, lost the advantage that we had in the league, yes we blinked first, so let's go big time and that Final is in Dublin .

13.) 11 Apr 2024 18:54:17
And that shows how much I know.

14.) 11 Apr 2024 21:56:53
Lucky the second leg is at Anfield.



09 Apr 2024 07:02:32
Hello ed1 hope u well. Have u heard anything as regards trent, jota or Allison availability for games this week? beit atlanta thurs or palace sunday. They where to be back in training this week According to reports.


{Ed001's Note - they are meant to be back at the weekend mate.}

1.) 09 Apr 2024 07:16:20
Cheers ed1. That good news, we need them back badly. hopefully they hit the ground running but they have all been out a long time at this stage so we will have to see.

For me vvd has been thee crucial player during the klopp era. Nothing happens without his signing imo, a colossus for us for many years. from 17/ 18 til his injury he best cb ever I seen anywhere and that not because he lfc player. he almost like 1 man defence at time, periods around then that gomez and matip played with him they looked like world class players, which with all due respect to them in hindsight they weren't, I think that Down to vvd playing alongside them.
Whenever we do have to replace vvd, which is coming 1 way r another, we will have some job to do.

Yeah ed1 I think that correct, i believe we released him due to him being too small. What u think of him as a player ed1? at the right fee and if diaz leaves yes, but i wouldn't be going too heavy money wise on him, would be my call.


{Ed001's Note - no thank you, he was released because he is not good enough and he still isn't. No skill, just pace. For me he is a Vardy-type player and that is where he should be playing. However to get the most out of a player like that, you need to play on the counter.}

I think the interest in ANTONY gordon is geniune. he done few interviews lately and spoke v highly of liverpool where he could which v surpriseing coming from an ex everton player. He definetly a good player but i certainly wouldn't pay a record fee for him which has been mooted. other positions in team need strengthening before that imo.


{Ed001's Note - he is a Liverpool fan and started off in the Liverpool academy if I remember correctly.}

I think dcl had the makings of an excellent player a few years ago but I think injuries have taken there toll, don't see him reaching his potential because of that.

I think we need 2 x cbs and to shift 1 out in an ideal world, konate i would sell if we got decent offer due to his injuries, so makes sense interest in both yoro and pacho.

Mane 1 of the best players to ever wear the lfc shirt imo. left foot, right foot, heading, aggression, no fear and I do believe the physically the strongest player I ever seen play lfc.

Lfc didn't see the best of him ed25 no doubt on that but some his football was brilliant to watch particularly in this day and age when most players are coached to be robots, all do same thing, thiago always had something different in him. Unfortunately due to injuries his time with the reds will be seen as failure and I can't argue with that.


{Ed025's Note - i would agree with that Digger mate..

Brilliant footballer unfortunately his time with us disappointing due to the injuries. No coincidence the 1 really good steady run he had in lfc team was the push for the quad 2 seasons ago, he played great stuff in that period.

Thanks for response ed1. A Pity as he should remember he will get fa cup+ league cup matches with lfc and going by allisson previous injury record he will prob get some league+ maybe champ league games as well.


{Ed001's Note - that's not really enough for a young keeper to progress. He needs to be playing every week.}
