Hello ed2, hope you and yours are all healthy and safe.

If we see a lot more player exchanges will this reduce the amount of money agents make on the back of these deals? If so will they try to resist these type of deals?

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note - It makes no difference to what agents will look to charge. There are few clubs that seem happy to pay extreme agent charges (both English) whist other clubs simply shun away from moves if agents won't negotiate. Even if there are exchanges, transfers are assigned a fee so agents working on a percentate also get paid.}

Hello eds n reds,

Ed2, do you think Mr klopp knows who he wants in the summer, or would he and his team still be watching, discussing and scouting further.

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note - Scouts work year round and Liverpool has an analysis chap who identifies players to be watched, scouts identify their own and sometimes the coach will ask for specific players to be watched. One of the players the scouts have been watching is playing at Celtic on Thursday - and Liverpool will be represented there. Don’t forget it was the scouts that picked out Salah and Alisson over Klopp own choices.}

1.) 23 Feb 2020 14:31:45
It that player Daramy from Copenhagen?

{Ed002's Note - On Thursday, yes. Not sure if he will start.}

2.) 23 Feb 2020 18:47:51
Who did Klopp prefer over Alisson Ed002? Karius maybe before that CL final?

{Ed002's Note - Oblak.}

3.) 24 Feb 2020 00:40:27
Ed02 can you please tell us the name of this scout?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have a whole bunch of scouts so I am not sure who you mean. If you mean the analysis chap it is Ian Graham.}

4.) 24 Feb 2020 06:24:29
Damn good keeper is Oblak Ed002, wouldn't have been too shabby a buy that!

5.) 24 Feb 2020 11:53:21
Oblak is a top keeper but I think (correct me if I'm wrong Ed) would have been more expensive than Alisson and not as talented with ball at feet. Scouts made the right choice.

I am happy to hear though that it sounds like we have a good collaborative effort going on behind the scenes. It seems Klopp trusts his scouting network with very noticable results.

{Ed002's Note - All coaches have to trust their scouting networks - but if Oblak were available I would think he would have been more expensive.}

6.) 25 Feb 2020 12:25:52
I think alisson suited our playing style more than oblak aswell as AM play a lot more defensive style than we do.

7.) 26 Feb 2020 11:05:35
Interesting news today that Chelsea are looking to swap Kepa + £25m for Oblak. I'd guess AM may want a bit more cash than that based on what Ed002 said above and Kepa's recent firm!

{Ed002's Note - There has been no such suggestion - whilst Chelsea has a list of GKs they have been looking at, they know that Oblak will not be available.}



26 Dec 2019 11:58:46
Morning eds and reds,

This is an odd one, but apparently, Liverpool are looking at Swindon Town's on loan goalkeeper, Benda. He has done well since arriving and coaches think he will play at a higher level. But i can't see it myself.

Cheers all, from a soggy Wiltshire.

wiltshire red

1.) 26 Dec 2019 21:16:51
I wouldn't see a reason for this unless it is a long term investment they plan on making money from later.



24 Nov 2019 22:19:06
Evening eds n reds,

Is there any truth in our interest in that keeper from Turkey whose name escapes me. If so what's the thinking behind it?

We have the best keeper in the world who has not been here that long, and our back up is pretty nifty as well.

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note - This will be Cakir. It might be an old story - he is well thought of and Liverpool do not need a first pick goalkeeper at this time. I doubt he would want to be on the bench.}

1.) 25 Nov 2019 11:29:33
I'd imagine that Adrian performances while Alisson was out would put end to any interest. We have 1 of the best keepers in the world. And a very able back up now, with a few promising young goalkeepers coming through.

2.) 25 Nov 2019 13:23:22
Thanks ed. Did seem an odd one.

3.) 25 Nov 2019 16:10:31
I think we’ve got enough quality keepers in our locker to rule out any incomings!

4.) 25 Nov 2019 20:08:14
The keeper in Turkey? You mean Karius? 😂.

{Ed025's Note - no that was the turkey in turkey fuser.. :)



29 Sep 2019 12:05:05
morning all.

Quick question ed2. Any interest from us in David Neres.

If so, do you rate him at all?

ta very much.

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note -
It has been suggested that Liverpool will look to David Neres (LW/RW) although I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool - if they were to declare interest it would likely be at the expense of Salah or Mane - and not in addition to. Other sides retain an interest but none have really bitten. A couple of the interested sides have coaches who may well move on and that might well see interest move on as well.}

1.) 29 Sep 2019 14:40:59
Thanks ed.

2.) 30 Sep 2019 12:36:05
Ed can you explain why it would be in place of one of the front three and not as a rotation/ competition of them? Its a big highlight that is often referred to what if we lose one of our front three to long term injury. Im not suggeting we but a player simply for injury cover however there is plenty of football to be played every year to accomdate a fourth top player to rotate into those positions. Origi is a good impact sub but not a starter and Brewster is only a kid still and has a lot of learning to do before he challenges the front three to start weekly.

It doesn't stack up that we can't have this without having to lose one of these players. If you compare central midfield for instant we have more than three players there that are all first team worthy.


All these for three positions so why not more options for the front line in the shape of a proven top level player.

{Ed002's Note - Why would any of those players move to sit on the bench to provide cover?}

3.) 30 Sep 2019 12:45:32
To rotate and play regular like the midfield 3 do? We must play 60plus games during a season.

4.) 30 Sep 2019 13:11:38
i used to disagree with the eds on their stance that there isn't room for another great rotating player in the front 3, but it's (finally) becoming clear to me that klopp prefers a short bench and likes playing guys that he trusts. he has the firepower that he needs in mane, firmino, and salah, and has cover for them with origi and shaqiri, and extended cover for them with lallana, keita, brewster, and elliott.

5.) 30 Sep 2019 19:09:56
If it was as a replacement, then it's an absolute no go, as Neres is not fit to replace either Salah nor Mane. If he was to move to be a rotation player (which I agree with Ed002 regarding why would he want to move to be a rotation player) then I can see some merit for it from a Liverpool standpoint. I just think that there are better players around for less money than Neres.

6.) 30 Sep 2019 21:43:21
I just don’t agree that every time a front player is linked it’s automatically suggested it’s a replacement. There is plenty of football for a four option and plenty of clubs that play a front 3 that have 4 or more options.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool also have Origi, Brewster and others who are in exactly the same boat.}

7.) 02 Oct 2019 00:30:41
Time for Salah to move I think . Don’t really emirate mane either. As long as bobby doesn’t t go as he’s clearly out best player with vvd.

8.) 02 Oct 2019 08:52:24
@SG8 please tell me I’m missing the sarcasm in the don’t rate mane and Salah needs to move comments!

Salah is currently off form and trying too hard to score which is affecting his (already questionable) decision making but that just needs Klopp to have a word and start subbing him.

Mane has been one of our most consistent players who even when he’s having a hard time works incredibly hard for our team!

The only team in the prem that wouldn’t want these players is city and that’s because the have players equal in ability already that better fit their style of play.

9.) 02 Oct 2019 14:35:24
Man City have Mahrez, sane and Jesus who would get into any team below top four as bench players. Players like mahrez who is top quality do move to sit on bench becaus they love the money. So we would have to pay ridiculous wages for them to do that and that ain’t happening. Peope hype up that Foden and he never even gets any minuites, just an rubbish cameo.

{Ed002's Note - Rubbish - where do you get this nonsense?}

10.) 04 Oct 2019 09:03:59
Not sure about David Neres. Seems a bit hit and miss just like his buddy Hakim Ziyech. Neres was pretty poor at the Copa America and got rightly benched after the first two games and never saw the field after that. Everton took his place and had a blinder. I think we can do netter than him BUT if Klopp and his team want him then, I'm all in cos Neres is very talented.

11.) 04 Oct 2019 09:50:15
This isn't football manager where we can just pick and choose signings. We can't just say we need strong backups and expect that any top talent would want to join us currently when we've got such a clear first choice attack. Neres wouldn't want to spend most of his time on the bench when he can probably fancy himself to be a starter for nearly ever other club in Europe.

12.) 05 Oct 2019 07:07:49
Hey SG8greatest, in regards to your comment

"As long as bobby doesn’t t go as he’s clearly out best player"

He left in early September:
Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina

I have only just recovered!

13.) 05 Oct 2019 11:08:09
SG8greatest. ' you don't rate Mane and you think its time for Salah to go. Come on mate that's surley a wind up. or your clueless. Mane is a World Class player that any team in the world would love to have.

I see the one of the conditions for players returning is that they will have designated parking spaces at least 3 spaces from the next nearest car.

The womens teams will be happy. My mr's can't park for toffee.

10 May 2020 11:19:55
Morning all hope your all well.

It looks as though my local club, Swindon are going to be promoted. The chatter down here is that the league is now done and dusted and they will be placed on a pionts per game basis.

Dont know if its true and does not have any effect on LFC or the Premier League. At least there is a conclusion.

Eds, do you know if a, its true and b, will the premier league take any notice.

Going for a long walk now. Found a pub that i can buy a take away pint.

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note - (a) There is no firm agreement at this time but I very much suspect it will not be viable to restart League 1 or League 2. The clubs need to vote and I would think by next weekend that the decision will be made. (b) The issue of promotion is far more complex as it needs negotiation with the leagues above and really should be part of a larger agreement on how seasons should end if they need to do so. My preference would be for promotion of two sides through the leagues and no relegation - three PL sides have raised questions over the concept and one PL side is so vigorously that they have effectively issued threats against other sides. The advantage League 1 and League 2 have is negotiating with the EFL might be possible.}

1.) 10 May 2020 11:44:19
And if these teams was to be promoted Ed would the teams in 1st place be declared as Champions or just straight promotions.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is discussing such matters.}

2.) 10 May 2020 11:46:15
Thanks ed.

3.) 11 May 2020 19:10:42
White evangelicals are not the only ones voting trump. I do realize that’s not technically what you said Ed002. They definitely got him over the line though, just as the African American population got Obama over (and failed to turn up for Hilary) . Love him or hate him, trump has definitely shone a light on a lot of things that needed exposing, even if he is as dirty as the rest of washington.

And the Midwest is behind in a lot of ways, but the more urbanized regions leave much more to be desired with extensive homeless populations, crime/ gangs, cost of living. I much prefer rural living.

Hope you’re well Ed002. I am surprised rodeos weren’t considered essential business. Florida kept wrestling events open after all. No love for the adventurers like yourself I suppose.



24 Apr 2020 09:36:57
Morning all, hope your all well.

Apart from the Curtis Jones, Elliot and Williams do you think there will be any other youngsters that will 'break through' into the first team reckoning next season?

wiltshire red

1.) 24 Apr 2020 13:34:54
Probably not, we’re an elite team competing at the top of the game now so to breakthrough as youngster is a heck of lot harder now. I’d be surprised if all 3 of those make the final grade to be honest. Would love to be wrong of course.

2.) 24 Apr 2020 14:18:57
Me neither, Shaq. We all thought Brewster would get a lot more chances and even he had to g out on loan. Not sure what will happen to him BUT this is what you get when you become an truly elite team that hhas clearly dominated England, Europe and the World, all over the oast 18 months. The expectations and pressure to win only increases and with that in mind, very little chance is left for "rookies" to show their mettle and get chances.



07 Apr 2020 15:54:22
Afternoon eds n reds. If the champions league for this season is cancelled then do we get to keep the trophy for another year, or do we have to return it?

wiltshire red

{Ed002's Note - No, clubs don't have the actual Champions League trophy just a replica which they keep. Rules about keeping the trophy changed some year ago.}

1.) 07 Apr 2020 18:16:56
We kept the real one after 🖐🏼.

Jay dub are you for real?

I bet your under 20yrs old think your immune and its a virus for old people.

i suppose all these uk chief scientific officers and other top docs are wrong and your right.

People like you are the reason 16/ 17 yr olds are not given the vote.

I won't write any more as its past your bed time.

I truly despair.

Some of us have worked every day meeting people throughout our shifts, Docs and Nurses, care home workers, posties like me etc etc.

Some posties are home, some at work and some moved to nights. My point is that we had choices. Players have a choice and if they feel at risk fair enough. But it is annoying that most of the players saying stop the season are in the bottom 4/ 5 clubs. No coincedence there. As Lfc8 said, others can play in their place.

Sorry Troy but you should not avoid relagation by default. Man up.
