Hi Ed’s 2
A few days ago you mentioned that the future of Koopmeiners mite be a bit clearer on Monday or Tuesday so I don’t suppose you have any more information on him yet do you?

{Ed002's Note - Discussions have begun with Juventus but Atralanta are not keen the the proposed "creative" solution being put forward.}



30 Jun 2023 18:39:28
Evening Eds2
I was wondering if you knew the player who cost the most ever in add on’s?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I can’t say but it could be Pipco.}

1.) 30 Jun 2023 21:13:18
Was it true that Barcelona had to pay us because he won the Champions league at Bayern. I remember seeing a rumour saying there was a clause that theyd owe us whatever amount if he won the CL but it never said it had to be won at Barcelona.



23 Jan 2023 15:01:37
Hi eds
Is Arthur melo still at the club or has he gone back to Italy?

{Ed002's Note - He is still at the club who would like to cut the deal short with interest in taking him from elsewhere.}

1.) 23 Jan 2023 15:35:51
Would there be any financial penalty for Liverpool, if we cut his deal short?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

2.) 23 Jan 2023 19:06:56
Evening ed002, out of interest, why does the club want to cut the deal short? He’s hardly kicked a ball, is the feeling mutual? We could do with another option in midfield


{Ed002's Note - The loan has not worked out well due to injury and Liverpool will not want to continue paying his wages.}

3.) 23 Jan 2023 19:25:31
Cheers ed002.

4.) 24 Jan 2023 07:24:39
A question for you Ed002, if I may.

Does a club typically take out insurance against injuries, I. e. the insurance company pays the wages while someone is injured (Like short term disability insurance if you work in a company)? Or is the entire bill footed by the club?

I ask because an injury-ridden season like ours could be horrendously costly both in terms of paying wages for players who aren’t playing and in terms of not making it into the CL…double whammy.

Many thanks!

{Ed001's Note - I can answer that - professional clubs have to have insurance against injuries. They would not get a license to operate without insuring their players against injuries. That covers treatment as well as salaries.}

5.) 24 Jan 2023 14:15:06
beggars belief why they have kept Arthor for so long and now decided they want to send him back.



31 Jan 2022 23:15:59
BBC saying the deal has fallen though. No time to finalise it!

{Ed0666's Note - what a shame



04 Jan 2022 15:11:03
Just heard a rumour that the training ground is shut due to C.V. cases and all goal keepers have it so the Arsenal game is off.
No clue if it’s true!

1.) 04 Jan 2022 15:18:41
I've heard a similar thing, that only Karius is healthy.

2.) 04 Jan 2022 16:17:42
Fly Goaly?

3.) 04 Jan 2022 16:25:58
Only Karius being available is interesting, if true.

The general rule for the Premier League is that teams will be expected to fulfill the fixture if they 13 outfield players and 1 goalie available from the registered list of 25 senior players.

Karius was not registered as part of the 25 man squad for the Premier League so for a PL game his availability wouldn't matter.

But I'm not sure we're restricted to using just the PL list for the Carabao, which would mean he's eligible to play if I'm right. And unless we end up with less than 14 players, we could be obliged to fulfill the fixture despite all our senior keepers except Karius being unavailable. Maybe Ed002 could clarify?

{Ed002's Note - Loris Karius is registered.}

4.) 04 Jan 2022 16:40:15
It's time like these that they have to adopt "last man back"

The hairline var decisions at corners as to who was indeed the last man back. The drama.

5.) 04 Jan 2022 16:45:42
So he is, I just assumed there wasn't room and that's why Pitaluga was on the bench at the weekend. Guess JK wants to really underline Karius' lack of a future here.

Thanks Ed.

6.) 04 Jan 2022 18:25:03
Haha Davey 'last man back' is a great shout!

Imagine how much more interesting football would be if that was a rule by the way!

7.) 04 Jan 2022 18:33:34
Phil Jones played his first game for 2 years last night. Karius could play and have a blinder, stick a few quid onto his transfer fee 😜😜.

{Ed025's Note - yeah IR, you might get the full 50p if he does well mate.. :)

8.) 04 Jan 2022 19:31:23
Jesus…… your sources are top notch fellas, many thanks for sharing. A bit gutted the game may be called off but thanks for the quality posts 👍.

9.) 04 Jan 2022 20:13:15
It’s somewhat ironic that Karius didn’t catch it.

10.) 04 Jan 2022 20:51:18
I'd take 50p ed25 🤣.

{Ed025's Note - i bet you would mate.. :)

11.) 05 Jan 2022 12:16:45
To be fair ED025, he's still better than Lil short arms across the park, never seen so many, central/ not near the top corner goals go in against an "international" keeper.

{Ed025's Note - i was never his biggest fan lancaster but i have to say hes grown on me a bit, hes certainly not the worst in the world mate....that accolade without a doubt goes to karius by a country mile..

12.) 05 Jan 2022 16:58:22
Think the kid at Arsenal looks a top class keeper for the future.

{Ed077's Note - Ramsdale you mean? I am still not fully convinced by him myself. Joe Hart 2.0 for me. Good but not great and overhyped by the media.

But he is still very young and has time to develop.

13.) 06 Jan 2022 12:54:04
Would help ED025 if he stopped eating them blue smarties before games.

{Ed025's Note - he can be a bit rash at times lancaster, but thats because hin previous job was as a small arms dealer mate.. :)

14.) 06 Jan 2022 15:46:22
Quality Ed.

Hi eds2
Have Liverpool employed new assistant coaching/ goal keeper and fitness coaches ect yet and if so could you tell us who they are please.

{Ed002's Note - Arne Slot will be Head Coach, Sipke Hulshoff will be his assistant assuming compensation can be agreed and Ruben Peeters will be looking after the fitness of the team. Hulshoff has said that there is a Work Permit issue over Etienne Reijnen (opposition analyst) but it should be reolvable.}

1.) 31 May 2024 13:12:46
Sipke Hulshoff has tp be referred to as Spike Hasselhoff.

2.) 31 May 2024 15:06:08
Thanks for the information eds2 ??.

3.) 31 May 2024 15:27:09
They are advertising for a set piece coach on LinkedIn, any takers? Mk maybe?

4.) 31 May 2024 18:42:30
I got my coaching badges out of a cereal box mate ? think I’m under qualified!

5.) 31 May 2024 19:04:16
Severely, MKS.

6.) 31 May 2024 22:07:09
Oil, I’ve coached u11’s Judo and taught PE to 7 year olds. That’s got to get me an interview at least right?

7.) 01 Jun 2024 10:10:37
Ole managed to land the Utd job with less qualifications and experience than you, MK. So I would say you're good to go ??.

8.) 01 Jun 2024 13:57:01
Indeed, @Dracred. All Ole needed was Rio to "endorse" him the way he did and there he went, lol.

@MKS, I would have hired you of the judo experience with the kiddies alone, lol.



19 May 2024 19:23:14
Wow that was emotional! Not going to lie had to hide a tear in the pub.

{Ed025's Note - nothing wrong with that mate..

1.) 19 May 2024 19:43:28
I was cutting onions also, however once again Klopp made me smile and see the positives! Jürgen Norbert Klopp, thank you, YNWA.

2.) 19 May 2024 19:54:10
Truely blessed to have that man as our manger for 9 years.

3.) 19 May 2024 20:16:05
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.

4.) 19 May 2024 20:54:16
For me, I thought it would be worse with the onions BUT I think all went well.

Nice touch from Klopp to welcome Arne Slot to the club with a really good song, as well.

Again, honor, dignity and care for others till the very end!

5.) 19 May 2024 23:38:44
He delivered exactly what he had promise to all during his first interview "turn the doubters into believers"

That's a real top bloke right there.

Final season. We won only one. But I believe most of us believed we should have won more, even the league title.

I love you man!

6.) 20 May 2024 00:51:35
Incredible scenes and a great speach from Klopp, one I can only describe as, real? he spoke from the heart and always has done in my opinion. He's one of us, always was and always will be. Now get that statue up. Some people are daft enough to not appreciate a legend of the club but the vast majority of us are well aware of what he's done for us and how far he took us. Not just a great manager but a great person. He will be missed.

7.) 20 May 2024 10:54:52
I have it on good authority that Jürgen was a bad, bad man forever telling lies, tapping players up and coveting the Chelsea Academy. As a matter of fact, I read That frequently on this very site.



17 May 2024 14:37:16
Thank you Klopp for being honest about VAR. Am not sure he would said that if he was staying next season but who cares. What he said is absolutely correct! I just wish there were more high profile managers or owners that would do the same ????.

1.) 17 May 2024 16:48:36
Longthing, Klopp is letting it all hang out cos he's out the gaf. Can you blame him?

2.) 18 May 2024 08:48:08
I feel there are more of these to come from Klopp.



05 May 2024 10:55:38
Morning eds1
Could you add Teun Koopmeiners to the the list of player profiles please mate.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate done that.}

1.) 05 May 2024 11:56:23
Have you seen much of him Ed? What are your brief thought on him?

{Ed001's Note - I have seen a little and he doesn't really impress me playing in that advanced role. Works hard but very little creativity on the ball from what I have seen but I do need to look at more of him play.}

2.) 05 May 2024 17:08:03
Ed1, what are your thought on both Kudus and Olise? I think I read that your not a fan of Olise? Could be someone else though.

{Ed001's Note - Kudus is good, works hard, creative, skilful. Very good player. Olise is just too lazy and flatters to deceive for me.}

3.) 05 May 2024 22:31:48
I rate Kudus as well, Ed01. Looks like a young Sadio in his early 20's.



28 Apr 2024 11:28:49
Hi all
I don’t know if this has talked about already but what was going on with the ref yesterday. He told the keeper to play on then when the keeper throws the ball out and Gakpo runs to score the ref blows up and tells the keeper to sit down brings the physio on. The keeper was literally pulling his socks up and not concentrating. This to me is a complete f**k from the ref yet again.

1.) 28 Apr 2024 12:46:53
It needs to be explained. And not by Dermot ‘Refs Do No Wrong’ Gallagher.

2.) 28 Apr 2024 13:21:10
Taylor messed up.
When he realised his mistake and went running over, I half expected him to whack the keeper on the head with a black pudding like the Ecky Thumpers on The Goodies to give him a head injury.

3.) 28 Apr 2024 13:47:52
It was all very strange. The weirdest part was ref running over to the keeper, chatting to him and then the keeper falls to the ground and the medics are coming on.

Seems like a genuine error from the ref but with about a million bungles in between that made it look at best messy, and at worst a bit dodgy.

And why did he restart with a drop ball?

4.) 28 Apr 2024 14:19:17
Gakpo should have played the ball into the net. Just put the ball into the net first then what deliberation can happen afterwards.

Just like what Abubakar did for Cameroon against Brazil at the world cup.

5.) 28 Apr 2024 17:28:04
Nigerred, even if he did nothing could be done, ref had blown so the game was dead.

Looking back I think the ref was considering time wasting and possibly booking the keeper. But he just got himself tied up and let the keeper off from what would of been a terrible mistake.

6.) 28 Apr 2024 21:57:05
Taylor screwed up and ro save himself from ridicule (too late, btw) manufactured that whole scene from thin air to protect himself from his upteeth exhibition of his relentless incompetence. I wish Gakpo had scored. Now that would have been funny even tho, Taylor would have found a way to rule it out with some bull crap action, like he did here.

7.) 28 Apr 2024 22:16:34
WYred, I disagree. Listen, this is not complicated and like you, many of us know the rules of footie esp. in this context.

Taylor asks Areola to get up after he catches the ball off the botched corner kick. Taylor does NOT give a foul so the play is NOT dead. He goes down and Taylor tells him to get up again while running and pointing to the LFC side of the pitch with his back turned and blowing his whistle meaning, the ball is ready to go back INTO play.

Then, Areola flips the ball onto the pitch so from this moment, the ball now is IN play. Under the rules at that point, the ball is can be touched by any outfield player and that includes those of the opposing team. Gakpo then attacks the ball and then from nowhere, Taylor blows the whistle to stop the game and then, starts telling Areola to go down like he's injured and he the ref, calls the WH med. team out, something he should NOT even be doing cos Areola NEVER asked for it.

The bottom line is that Taylor messed up Gakpo spared his blushes by not scoring cos had he scored, it would have been interesting to see try to wriggle out of this one.

I’d sell Diaz just because of his dad. I mean the bloke has disrespected our club! We bent over backwards to help Diaz through the terrible times and rightly so. We paid to bring his dad here to this country and the thanks we get is his dad constantly talking about his son moving else where while our season was falling apart. I just think Diaz should have told his dad to shut up at least untethered season was finished! Move him on and find someone who wants to play for our club.

He was a good player on his day but will always be remembered for his injuries. His wages are huge so good to get him off the books I guess.

Allison is world class! So why would you move him on. He probably got another 8 years at high level football so do everything you can to keep him.

Hi eds1
I can’t remember now. Did Gerrard leave because he didn’t like Roger’s or did Roger’s want him moved on?

{Ed001's Note - he wasn't going to play much under Brendan, so Gerrard chose to leave. Rodgers was never in a strong enough position to move Gerrard on against his will mate.}

I used to watch all the England games and I was fairly passionate about it but since Southgate has been in charge I just can’t stand watching it. The bloke just irritates me and the football is the most boring I’ve ever seen. I suppose his record is ok but he is clueless so I won’t be watching England until he’s gone.
