If the brad Smith deal goes through, who do you think is most likely to replace him at this stage?


Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - I still think Chilwell.}

24 Jul 2016 08:44:15
Thanks ed appreciate the quick reply, I was hoping chilwell, I know he is not the finished article but he certainly looks like he has bags of potential.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 09:28:27
I really want Chilwell he looks class, surprised we are squabbling over price, he seems really keen to join.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 09:26:55
ED001, do u reckoning if we are letting Smith go then a replacement has been sought?


Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - we have just bought a player who can cover left back, which means Smith was unlikely to be needed. We are still trying to bring in a specialist left back as well though.}

23 Jul 2016 22:25:49
lfc and Bournemouth supposedly agreed a fee for Bradford Smith. around 6mil according to reports.

Have the Eds heard any rumours regarding Oscar Wendt to Liverpool? I remember him being linked with us years ago, but recently heard his name mentioned as a possible target, on another forum.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - A Hodgson target when he first arrived? Sure, why the hell not.}

23 Jul 2016 22:59:46
damn predictive txt on me phone.

Agree2 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 23:24:37
So potentially 22 mil for two fringe players. that's another plus for using the academy, of course you want to have them star for you but if there not deemed good ebough, once they have a good amount if appearances for a team such of ours, couting there age aswel, the fees are there for us to demand.

Ojo has a season or two now and if he doesn't maie it its another 10/ 13 mil just ib potebtial.

24 Jul 2016 01:03:21
Thatd be the advantage of developing youngsters. Cyncis would say fsg buy youth players solely for the intention of selling for profit. But I don't believe this at all. If the player pushes on and can contribute at 1st team level then he will. But if not then at least ya haven't wasted 30-odd million on someone like benteke. flipsidee being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 Jul 2016 02:10:37
Faithinworks, arevu saying no opportunities given to young players? Are u following liverpool at all?

Agree0 Disagree3

24 Jul 2016 03:33:38
I think you'll find what I said was - " flipside being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through. "

if that translates to "no opportunities given to young players" then I'm sorry, I can't help you.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 07:10:31
Its a complete myth about fsg buying young to sell at a profit.

All clubs buy for the academy and then any young players who we've bought for the starting 11 we've massively over paid for them ie firmino.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 22:34:23
Brad Smith to Bournemouth? Any truth.

23 Jul 2016 22:51:23
Must have another left back line up if smith is being aloud to leave.

Agree7 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 23:28:54
Yeah would hope so. May use the money to pay that extra bit for Chilwell.

Hi Ed's and Red's

Any further report on Joe Allen moving along?

I'm a Swansea lad myself, and a lot of the talk from the fans here is that the club is expecting to sign him.

Always thought highly of the boy myself, I may be one of the few that would be sad to see him go after the effort he had put in the latter half of last season.

Just wondering if this is why there's been little update on the move to Stoke, is he holding out for the Swans to come back in for him?

Believable5 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - it was because he took a break after the Euros, that's all. I expect something will happen next week.}

23 Jul 2016 22:31:20
If Joe wants to move back to Swansea then it will happen. My understanding is he's really torn. He's settled where he is, but has strong connections with Swansea and lots of family living locally. He's also tempted by a move abroad should an offer come in.

I was talking with someone very senior at Swansea recently and they are still keen, it's more a case of whether Joe wants that move.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 20:17:47
Thanks Ed, please tell me that we are done with adding further CM's though?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - only for replacements now.}

23 Jul 2016 16:54:35
Chilwell hasn't signed, deal off. Move back on the cards?

Believable4 Unbelievable6

23 Jul 2016 17:13:57
Chilwell playing againsr Celtic today.

Agree4 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 18:15:59
Will be watching that game.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 21:30:24
Dont know much about the lad, but Ed seems somehow hopefull for the boy, so I guess he got potential! Would hate for some other big club to wrap him up now.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 02:20:41
Average player it seems.

Agree0 Disagree2

22 Jul 2016 18:19:34
Wijnaldum signed. Good transfer.

Believable53 Unbelievable20

22 Jul 2016 18:26:07
Wooooaaah fella, prepare to be abused for calling it a good transfer ;-)

22 Jul 2016 18:59:25
i agree. good signing. duno what dawfonaboat is on about.

Agree21 Disagree17

22 Jul 2016 19:10:07
Seemed to come out of nowhere this one but I believe he will do well. Gives me a bit more optimism than when Lallana signed.

Agree23 Disagree10

22 Jul 2016 19:19:54
69M for he and Mane, they have allot to prove.
ED's and members do you see Wijnaldum playing #10 centrally or out wide with his speed behind Coutnho-Mane-Firmino?

Agree5 Disagree27

22 Jul 2016 19:22:06
sorry i mean johnnyr1970.

Agree6 Disagree6

22 Jul 2016 19:42:50
You'll probably all bash me but I think it's a poor signing. Hope I'm proved wrong I think we need abit of strength and a leader in CM not someone who can do a job in a number of positions.

Agree13 Disagree27

22 Jul 2016 20:06:46
Yipster, think he will play out wide, probs on the left.

Agree4 Disagree8

22 Jul 2016 20:20:56
Theresonlyone88, i was referring to the amount of negative comment this transfer has drawn across the site over the past week or so - i don't actually have an opinion either way because I haven't really seen him play but it feels like some LFC fans have personally scouted him and deemed him inadequate.

Agree9 Disagree2

22 Jul 2016 21:07:55
Yipster so you don't think we have enough in the centre with hendo, emre can, grujic, stewart, lucas and also ejario coming through.

Agree5 Disagree3

22 Jul 2016 21:16:20
Wobsworth yh we have enough I prefer quality over quantity, I want us to grace Europe, like I said I hope I'm proved wrong and I'll be the first to hold my hands up. Lucas looks set to leave. Grujic is unproven though he looks exciting. Van is brilliant but raw and hendo leaves a lot to be desired. I'd just like an experienced head to sure things up. I want us to grace the champions league, just purchased bt sport lol.

Agree6 Disagree9

22 Jul 2016 21:17:56
There is a feeling with nufc fans that if he doesn't play no 10, he's not effective.
I think klopp has his work cut out to get consistently good performances from this guy playing wide or deeper mf- but if anyone can do it, he can.

Agree6 Disagree8

22 Jul 2016 21:26:37
Angus, maths not your strong suit?

Agree14 Disagree3

22 Jul 2016 22:31:45
I like him, obviously talented also strong, quick and powerful
Looking forward to seeing him.

Agree5 Disagree5

22 Jul 2016 22:35:50
He won't be playing on the left if Coutinho is still here neither will he play on the right with Mane already there and not no.10 with Firmino there so will the big fans of this signing enlighten me on where he will play as I have no clue.

Agree7 Disagree5

22 Jul 2016 23:09:24
Cincyred, I guess its possible that we are actually buying a good quality player so that we have a good quality bench when the inevitable injuries happen, rather than with a specific starting place in mind?
I do think it will focus some players minds knowing a talented player like wijnaldum is chomping at the bit to take their place if they underperform.

Agree3 Disagree4

22 Jul 2016 23:14:16
There are a few options with Widjnaldum but in essence I think his signing is a direct result of lack of goals from Milner, Joe Allen and Llalana. I'd see him as someone to transition play swiftly to the forwards and score goals through arriving late in the box.

More specifically I suspect he'll be used at
1) left midfield in a 4-3-3 (ie direct Joe Allen replacement)
2) perhaps at no.10 if using Firmino as a false 9 (or resting Firmino)
3) As impact sub for either Mane or Coutinho out wide
4) very selectively at deeper midfield to rest Hendo or Can.

Agree4 Disagree4

23 Jul 2016 00:02:12
A goal scoring midfielder - he'll do well. Don't worry about Wijnaldum.

Agree8 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 00:57:34
Another attacking midfielder.

Agree2 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 02:11:51
Wijnaldum = strength and speed of Bolaise, football brains of sneijder. Good catch.

Agree8 Disagree8

23 Jul 2016 04:02:37
Non of cout, Lallana, Firmino are a no.10. Wini will fit right there.

Agree2 Disagree6

23 Jul 2016 04:39:01
Sorry Worro, I know the GBP isn't what is used to be (a month ago) : p.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 10:30:07
He plays for Liverpool now so what ever happens let's support him and hope he plays as well as we know he can but more regularly than he did through the back half of last season.

Agree3 Disagree1

22 Jul 2016 17:10:18
Is Ben chilwell set to sign a new deal at Leicester?

Believable7 Unbelievable6

22 Jul 2016 17:29:06
Can this be Leicesters attemp to push Liverpool to pay the asking price, or will this be the final of the Chilwell story?

Agree6 Disagree11

22 Jul 2016 19:45:11
Might push the Hector transfer through now, or we will probably sign amavi which would be awful. Not one of them villa players are worthy of a move after last season.

Agree5 Disagree17

22 Jul 2016 20:08:52
Yipster Amavi looked really good before his injury and then never played for the rest of the season he would be a very good signing providing there is no long lingering issues after his injury.

Agree9 Disagree3

22 Jul 2016 21:17:04
Hope your right carroll.

Agree3 Disagree2

22 Jul 2016 21:28:12
Amavi is very good.

Agree3 Disagree2

22 Jul 2016 22:37:06
Hector is not coming except you have another 25m to splurge on a LB.

Agree0 Disagree3

23 Jul 2016 16:37:11
Amavi is a good left back, if he's clear of his injury then why not? Ed002 said he was someone we were looking at, he's a French u21 and has the quality to be a full international.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 22:10:28
A mate of mine is a villa fan and he raves about amavi. I've never seen him play but I know Villa fans would hate to lose him.

22 Jul 2016 14:45:46
Hello all

A while back, there was here some mentioning of Tottenham being interested in taking Henderson for next season. Could that still be on, or Wanyama's signing ended a potential interest in him?

Are there any clubs showing any interest in Henderson?

Believable2 Unbelievable20

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not looking to sell their captain.}

22 Jul 2016 14:57:01
It was never on, just media crap.

Agree13 Disagree5

22 Jul 2016 15:04:49
He needs to get back to himself and have a big season or I fear he'll be sold next summer.

Agree10 Disagree15

22 Jul 2016 15:18:39
Captain hendo STAYS! I wouldn't of even posted that question.

Agree10 Disagree11

22 Jul 2016 15:42:28
Some people want him gone and have done since he came to LFC.

Agree10 Disagree8

22 Jul 2016 15:57:08
Every player should come back and compete as if their future depends on it.
Hendo will.
Thats why Klopp is bringing in better players to challenge the previous big signings to step up.

Its what's wrong with the England national team.
Outd of form players picked by an out of touch manager.
Klopp i'd different.

Agree10 Disagree9

22 Jul 2016 16:19:07
he was never in touch i think.

Agree1 Disagree8

22 Jul 2016 17:45:01
I can't believe that anyone would think that Henderson's captaincy which is in its infancy would be difference between him being sold or not. This is Premier League football not Sunday League.

Agree3 Disagree10

22 Jul 2016 18:01:09
It's been years and years, but it still boggles my mind as to how Woy was able to take the Swiss national side to the #3 Worldwide FIFA ranking (the rankings being another story altogether) .

Agree2 Disagree7

22 Jul 2016 22:38:56
That was about 25 years ago. That's a generation, my friend ra1969.

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Jul 2016 17:30:21
Maybe the Swiss players were more open to doing what he wanted and weren't big stars wanting their own way or believing their own hype.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2016 12:27:15

I was just wondering whether there is any interest in the following players:


I know Balo has been mentioned a lot on here and I have read about the interest in Markovic from Sporting.


Believable0 Unbelievable9

{Ed002's Note - ILori's agent is hawking him around. Fiorentina and Schalke are interested in Markovic but want a better price. Galatasaray want permission to talk with Lucas - but they have serious financial constraints they have to deal with following their ban. Klopp was stupid enough to play in to the hands of Balotelli's agent - he is working on something now that suits him and the player. I have previously explained other interest. Do not be surprised if there is a six month loan before he moves.}

22 Jul 2016 13:07:43
Intriguing 002.

Agree2 Disagree15

22 Jul 2016 13:11:11
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I assume nobody is in for Wisdom then, I think he could do pretty well in the championship from the limited amount I've seen of him in the last season.

Agree1 Disagree8

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach being made to Liverpool at this time.}

22 Jul 2016 13:54:03
He wouldn't be a bad shout for Newcastle him and Hanley at cb.

Agree2 Disagree9

22 Jul 2016 09:48:03
Hi eds, appreciate the work you do, what do you make of reports linking Max Meyer this morning, is it merely the usual 'let's link any German player to klopp' or is there any substance to these reports

Believable3 Unbelievable9

{Ed001's Note - he is being linked with everyone because he is likely to move.}

22 Jul 2016 17:16:55
28m according to the Echo.

What's the Eds thoughts on Meyer?
Fifa suggests he's awesome (which seems to be on par with most research we've done on players so far) :)

Agree0 Disagree8

{Ed001's Note - not seen much of him to be honest.}

22 Jul 2016 18:50:15
Thanks Eds 1 me neither. I've seen Klippys transfers in the past put he paid less for so many world class players combined than 1 teenager.
Potential replacement for Coutinho if he heads off?
