Ed, I read this morning something about us and skertl getting linked. Have you heard anything on this? Not loads of pace but decent experience and no nonsense defender? He's a safer bet than boyata I think .


{Ed007's Note - I know that some places were linking us with him along with Man City ( I know but remember they're after Jonny Evans), Newcastle and Swansea earlier this summer but if he was leaving Fenerbahce I think it would have happened by now.
Skrtel's only been in Turkey a year but he was being linked with a move away because Fenerbahce breached FFP Regs last year and it was thought he would need to be sold but with only days to go it doesn't look like that's true though that's not to say a move won't materialise.}

1.) 28 Aug 2017 12:59:22
If it were to happen ed, what's your opinion? An improvement?

{Ed007's Note - Definitely.}

2.) 28 Aug 2017 13:03:03
Afternoon ED I've been sleeping the day due to being night shift last night just wondering where we are at with PR one report says he's in or will be here for medical with Loan deal pending other report say possible permanent deal looming have I heard anything? Plus CH Rodgers knows too coming in possible can you shed in sense to these reports cheers.

{Ed007's Note - I'd love it to be a permanent deal for Roberts but unless the player himself has made a major u-turn it's going to be a loan. All the talk about why you'd need a medical for a loan is just nonsense, every signing goes through a medical even youngsters.
I've not heard anything on the CB situation but it seems to be Skrtel people are talking about.}

3.) 28 Aug 2017 13:46:25
I don't really rate him as a CB thought he was a bit suspect at time but who am I BR knows best seen someone talking about a striker too any news on that front ED?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Odsonne Edouard.......

4.) 28 Aug 2017 13:55:05
Who's that ED? Sorry.

{Ed007's Note - He's a 19-year old striker from PSG who spent last season on loan at Toulouse. Read up on him - the GB could have a field day with their banners lol}

5.) 28 Aug 2017 14:09:16
Cheers ED I will could possible the trip to France from BR maybe he was trying to do some shopping?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe.}

6.) 28 Aug 2017 14:12:08
I've heard of this kid, think he can play out on the right wing aswell a decent prospect and with PSG signing Neymar and supposedly agreeing a loan deal for Mbappe, it could open the door for him to leave.

7.) 28 Aug 2017 14:24:24
Is there any substance to the psg lad ed or just an opinion from yourself . I think skertel and jozo would be a good tough tackling pairing together . Kenny Miller wouldn't know which way to turn 😂.

{Ed007's Note - It was a name that was mentioned to me in a conversation I had this morning and he certainly ticks all the boxes as a 'project' for Rodgers.}

8.) 28 Aug 2017 16:02:47
Please not Skrtel - he's an appalling footballer and I use the term lightly because he's really nothing more than a thug.

9.) 28 Aug 2017 16:55:37
Heard that if PSG don't bring in £150 million in transfer fees before end of window they will be in breach of ffp rules so they may be looking to offload a few fringe players.

10.) 28 Aug 2017 18:29:44
Are we talking that useless bombs are who used to play for Liverpool, Skirtle?

He would be our Senderos.

I don't believe in God, but I'm asking him to take a day aff from helping actors win oscars, nicely, to make this bull.

I actually hate the way he plays fitba.

And Skurtles a nightmare too.

11.) 28 Aug 2017 18:30:45
Not cheap enough for us. Unless they gave hundreds of players. Won't affect us.



08 Jan 2017 21:36:52
On a couple of websites we are linked with the Turkish left back and Joe Gomez of Liverpool. Then today rumours of Chelsea and Munich looking at kt. I know he shot the rumours down but do you think the club are looking to sell kt. I sincerely hope not, I know possible cover is needed if izzy was to go but would a full international (turkey ) would be keen to come to sit on the bench


1.) 08 Jan 2017 22:24:17
A hope not mate, a doubt Rodgers would welcome any interest in kt. N he's a celtic diehard, he will go one day but not anytime soon hopefully. Fingers n toes crossed.

2.) 08 Jan 2017 22:33:58
I hope not but I think in most if not all clubs have a price for each player if they think its crazy money and if he would go I think it would happen but like you guys its just news papers trying to make up a story

Does anyone know if boyata or Erik will be fit for the psg game now we haven't signed a centre back? I'm having nightmares thinking biton will be up against cavani, mbappe and neymar . That's a tough test of you are a bonafide centre back not someone who is helping out there.


{Ed007's Note - Boyata should be fit to play against Accies next Friday night but whether he'll be risked on their plastic pitch I don't know.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 23:30:59
Is that the business done now? How have we not signed a CB. Great two signings but would have loved a new CB. Any chance of a last minute one?

{Ed007's Note - Looks like that's us.}

2.) 02 Aug 2017 21:45:53
Absolute joke to be honest, if we want to be a big team and play the big boys then we need to act like them and do the business . Can see us scoring a couple against the big guns as I think that's been addressed but losing a good few with a makeshift / unfit / untested defence. Rediculous found into CL with this defence and I'll bet anyone that when we lose our unbeaten run its because of us resting the unfit and injured defenders.



31 Aug 2017 17:03:11
Ed, with time running out on the window, would any Medicals be rushed through or not as stringent as normal due to time constraints. E. g. The problem with Coetzee would normally be picked up. Especially if they are with their national team or from another country.


{Ed001's Note - deals are agreed subject to medical if there is not time to do one. It happens a lot.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 17:13:57
ED001 hope you have your yellow tie on tonight lol.

{Ed001's Note - I am hurt Timmy! I am far better looking and much younger than Jim rhymes with White.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 17:34:40
This is gaining strength oh i hope so better than any we have and really great prospect please please.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 20:20:59
EDs a fan has just posted up that the deal for the PSG guy is off have use heard this?

{Ed007's Note - Did you miss out an ny there?}

4.) 31 Aug 2017 20:42:05
Is it true?

{Ed007's Note - I'm not telling you.}



30 Aug 2017 16:57:41
looks like it's back to the list as apparently denayer is signing for galatasaray.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 17:17:48
Quinn I think this was a made up story, anyway did you see Denayer at Sunderland last season, he looked overweight and lacked pace, not to bothered he is going to Turkey.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 20:12:58
Spot on Tim. He's regressed so much. Overweight, no pace, no passion and above all incredible arrogance. He can sod off.



30 Aug 2017 07:44:49
Ed, the latest news we are getting is the French forward ( that u scooped ) and denayer back but unfortunately both on loan . Do you know of any reason why we only seem to be looking at loans . Paddy I would accept but surely we should be looking at something more permanent especially at centre back . Is it back to penny pinching?


{Ed007's Note - I'd be surprised if there's any truth in the Denayer link after the way he spoke when he left but I suppose it could be he's an option as the clock runs down on this window and if no other CB can be brought in, especially if Sviatchenko leaves. I don't see how it can be penny pinching considering we had a bid accepted for Coetzee and him failing his medical threw a spanner in the works.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 11:28:30
Paddy is a loan because Manchester city won't sell him
The striker is a loan because the manager has already said he can't keep 3 top strikers
If the cb is a loan it's because our first choice failed a medical.
On top of that I would be surprised to see us going back for him at a later date.

{Ed001's Note - Citeh were open to selling him, it is just no one would pay the asking price.}

2.) 30 Aug 2017 11:10:34
Coetzee was hardly breaking the bank though, even he was a gamble as he'd never played European level which is what we need. I was referring to linked with skeryel which would have been exactly what we need to a loan for a player we had before, who although performed well before, has been crap everywhere else since. Plus he had Virgil playing beside him who could probably make me or u look decent beside him 😂.

{Ed007's Note - Was there anything concrete in the move for Skrtel though or just speculation like every other Liverpool or ex-Liverpool player we've been linked with since Rodgers came in?
And don't forget, the Dembele signing hardly broke bank did it and that worked out OK.
Or should we just start paying over the odds for players just so fans can say we broke the bank and boast about the fees? Would Coetzee be a better player in your eyes if we were paying more for him? How well do you know the South Affican game or market to understand the value of £800k? 38% of South African Premier Soccer League footballers earn less than R8000 per month - that's about £470 with the top wage of R50,000 (£3000) per month only being earned by 9.8% of the near 200 registered players. We were paying R13.5 million for Coetzee.
What if we signed Duverne for 5 million Euros, by your reckoning he'll be a cracking player because of his price and yet he's only ever played in the French second division.}

3.) 30 Aug 2017 11:26:08
A lot of people saw the Coetzee fee as penny pinching as well Ed.

{Ed007's Note -


4.) 30 Aug 2017 12:15:06
Certain fans won't be happy unless we finally break our long-standing transfer record because we've made so much money in the past couple of seasons. It's not an issue for me personally as long as there is a willingness to do so if the right player should become available. I like the sound of Duverne and he would be my preference for a CB coming in.

{Ed007's Note - We won't be breaking our transfer record this summer, Kev although Ntcham was our most expensive signing since Brown and Duverne would cost around the same.}

5.) 30 Aug 2017 12:28:09
A fee or lack of fee means very little when they hit the park.
Graveson arou d 2 million fae possibly the biggest team on earth
Failure at Parkhead
Hartley free transfer after he fell out with hearts
Who would we pick first now?

6.) 30 Aug 2017 12:38:00
What was the asking price they were asking for ed001?

{Ed001's Note - no idea, never asked, not sure how it matters?}

7.) 30 Aug 2017 12:35:02
All I was saying was, that I'd prefer an established experienced centre back come in, we keep getting told that we have funds available for a big signing ( plus potentially a windfall from champions league again and impending vvd sale ) I understand our model is generally to buy young with sell on value but at European level we are a very young inexperienced side . I appreciate we were missing boyata Erik and jozo the other night but the way we imploded shows we could do with more experience. I appreciate we would be stronger with them around but we had them last year and still leaked goals in the group stages. It wouldn't surprise me if we had the worst defensive stats in the groups . Surely congerton would have lists drawn up with players available, and they can't all be in the million pound bracket or loan deal option. ( before we say we spent money on ntcham I'm really talking about the defender situation )



28 Aug 2017 18:28:39
Welcome home paddy (7) just seen the new. Homecoming video 👍.

Looking back on previous windows I'm preparing myself to feel let down again. We have been in this position at many transfer windows recently, leave stuff to the end . Then when they fall through we hear the same guff from the board saying "it's a difficult window, something went wrong at the last minute, player had his head turned by an opportunity somewhere else. At the minute with the injuries, paddy not being here I definitely think we are worse off than last season . I'd love 2-3 players around the same mould of ntcham to come in for once ( obviously I mean in different positions )

First of all I hope he stays. As for some of us to be slagging him off, I really don't see what he's doing wrong. Armstrong isn't a kt where he was brought up loving the hoops, he has no real affinity to the club, although I'm sure he loves it there. What is happening to us is exactly what happened with him at Utd, he was offered a better contract, a better opportunity and he took it. It's the nature of the beast, any player anyone signs it's predominately for money and opportunities. Someone on here earlier was saying play ntcham or kundai as they want to be here. Ntcham has already said he wants to play in the premier in the future. We all know most of our lads have a shelf life of two to three seasons max because the standard isn't that challenging. He stays, great he moves on, we replace him and the cycle will continue.

That's probably the case kevbhoy but in all honesty we will have had him for 2.5 years by then . There isn't many players as talented as him that we have permanently signed that stay with us for that long, especially in the last few seasons .

I'd agree with all of the sentiments above, however we definitely needed a higher quality centre back. We all know we have more than enough for the league and I appreciate the efforts boyata made to improve. However, we were hanging on in quite a few European games last season and the opposition this season hasn't exactly got any easier. Also as good as boyata is offensively can people not remember when Scottish teams switched onto him and just marked everyone else leaving him with the ball as his passing was shocking?

Hope there is the option to buy as well, his stats look good . Just hope we don't sell dembele now as apparently spurs r sniffing .


{Ed007's Note - There is supposedly an option to buy Odsonne Edouard next summer. I don't doubt there will be teams trying to get a deal for Dembele over the line tomorrow but I think they have all left it too late.}

I would agree with you on a few points Stan but in all honesty as we are a football club I'd prefer to see the best possible team on the pitch. If the team is to take a back seat to a hotel there is something seriously wrong . I appreciate we look at other revenue streams but how much would a hotel get us back? For me the team has to come first, realistically we have only signed ntcham as a major player this year. Any team that wants to improve should surely be looking at 2-3 each season or else you stagnate.
