We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter page.

Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

Good Morning from Canada Ed's. Not to just throw out random names, but could Liverpool look to the likes of Aymeric Leporte at CB?
I don't watch a lot of La Liga however I am curious why he hasn't made the move to a side bigger than Bilbao.

Thanks again Ed's for your time, always appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Good afternoon from Paris Lock. Aymeric Laporte is very happy where he is and Basque clubs like to keep their players - albeit he is an honorary Basque. Prior to an injury a move to Manchester City was agreed, and even though they remained interested once he recovered he was not so keen on the move. However, there have no been discussions with another side but no agreement just yet - but it is possible he could even move in January. Liverpool has shown no interest in Aymeric Laporte.}

19 Oct 2017 15:46:17
Thanks again ED! Of the little I have seen of him, I liked what I saw! Cheers!

Good morning all

Wanted the eds thoughts on our Midfield area next season. Obviously we have Keita arriving and very likely Phil and Emre leaving. Do you think we will look to bring in another one to replace Phil? Or try and use Lallana and Gini? Of which I must say neither would be anyway near as affective as Phil.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - I expect a replacement, we spent the end of the summer trying to replace Coutinho.}

19 Oct 2017 09:39:48
Any ideas on whom we might look to ed, or is it a case of what's already been said?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Rafinha is out injured but will be offered to Liverpool - for reasons I don't understand he is another Klopp likes. I think unlikely but we'll see. Thomas Lemar - could be a possible Coutinho replacement next summer but there is interest from elsewhere and another club working for an early agreement.}

19 Oct 2017 10:30:01
Lallana and Gini to replace arguably the best playmaker in the league? Really? Coutinho is not any ordinary midfielder. He is the only playmaker we have and Rafinha is nothing like Phil. Lemar would be a decent shout, but I guess it will depend on CL qualifications.

Agree2 1Disagree

19 Oct 2017 10:33:24
Lemar makes sense to me - can play midfield or cover the wing if required and good on set pieces, so covers much of what Coutinho brings to the team if he leaves.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 12:21:56
What kind of midfield should we brought to partner keita?

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 12:50:06
Would we have another look at Brandt? I know he currently plays as a forward but, from the little I've seen of him, his style looks very similar to coutinho's.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 11:47:25
Ed002, is it possible Max Meyer or Maxime Lopez could be back in the frame cone next summer? Lopez looks a real handful this season.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - MM possibly but not ML.}

19 Oct 2017 12:46:54
Thank you your reply Ed002. I guess others could well be considered seens as the Summer is a long way off. Rafinha is one I wouldn't of considered tbh as he hardly ever plays, am I right in saying he hasn't really pushed on from when he was seen as a great player at an early age? Is it Arsenal looking for a deal with Lemar?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Rafinha has been and still is injured. Arsenal remain very keen on Lemar.}

19 Oct 2017 14:24:57
Cheers 002. Your insight is valued as always.

Hello chaps and chappettes, only asking for your opinions as I know no one knows for sure. Do ya’s think mane will be allowed go away with his national team after being called up and does this mean he mightn’t be out for as long as first thought.

Believable0 2Unbelievable

19 Oct 2017 11:29:53
He has been called up by Aliou Cisse for the two games.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 16:16:49
Called up yes but I'm sure a medical assessment will be required and LFC will have an input.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 10:33:08
Goretzka - apparently we have interest in him? - another player who's contract end's next year. Schalke are trying to get him to sign a new contract.

Should we be able to get him, would you be happy? To be honest, I've heard his name plenty but not really seen him play too much.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - The interest was as an alternative to Keita. I am not aware of any recent approach to his club or to his representatives.}

17 Oct 2017 10:49:34
Oh I see thanks Ed002, must be recycled news.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is certainly interest in him from elsewhere.}

17 Oct 2017 10:51:58
Perhaps he would be considered as a replacement for Can, considering we were planning on bringing in Keita and keeping Can. I also have not seen much of him, so perhaps someone with more insight could let us know what kind of player he is?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is not a replacement for Can. Liverpool saw him as an option for Keita. Other sides are keen - including Juventus, who want Can as well.}

17 Oct 2017 11:05:22
One to write off in that case then, cheers Ed002.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 13:10:49
I'd imagine unless Hendo or Gini were to decide to leave this wouldn't be an option.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 13:25:48
I could see a wholesale changes in the midfiled. Hendo, Can and Wiji all would be loosing their place. Kieta is one of the names to begin with! I expect at least one more to come in!

Agree4 5Disagree

17 Oct 2017 14:22:36
I agree Harry, Kieta is incoming, I do believe we will get another in the summer, whether it be Goretzka is another matter but I do think somebody else will come in.

Agree4 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 15:36:07
Maybe AOC will move into the middle at some point. Next season maybe? maybe maybe.

I'll go for Goretzka with or without Keita. I expect to lose Coutinho and Can. Goretzka-Hendo-Keita.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 02:13:13
I'm sure the kid Grujic would be leaving if somehow Goretzka arrived.
I think he's had 18 months to settle now, next season he should either be played more regularly or sold!

Personally I'd like to see him get a run in the team this season some time - we'll never know unless he's given games, training well/ poorly doesn't tell a whole story.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 02:27:04
Our midfield plan for next years is clearly Hendo-Keita-Coutinho/ Coutinho replacement. For the record I think there is nothing wrong with any of our midfielders in isolation. It's more that the three current midfielders are all so similar we have no variety - all box to box workhorses whose best work is done supporting specialists. That very much what Goretzka is as well and buying him would do little to improve our midfield without departures.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 14:44:03
Hi ED002

I hope your well mate. ED001 has given us his opinion on what he thinks we might look at doing in January if anything. Can you give us your thoughts please mate?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Whilst I can explain interest I cannot sensibly predict the timing of transfers. Clubs prefer not to do business in January so sometimes evrything has to wait for the summer.}

16 Oct 2017 14:53:52
We hardly do business in summer either.

Agree16 4Disagree

16 Oct 2017 18:20:32
Cheers for reply ed.

16 Oct 2017 12:02:19
Nico Elvedi is one to look out for in January or Summer - currently scouted by several clubs including LFC.

Believable1 1Unbelievable

16 Oct 2017 07:49:44
Morning Eds, is there any truth to us looking at Faouzi Ghoulam or have I been clickbaited? It would make no sense to me since we've just got Robertson?!

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - we looked at him in the summer. Someone told me he is out of contract next summer, so it could be a possibility if they are correct.}

16 Oct 2017 07:56:05
From what I have read Chelsea, City, Juventus and us are interested in him (no doubt there's more going on his contract ending) so I'd say the chances of us signing him are slim, but interesting nonetheless. If we did go for him I'm guessing Moreno would be out the door. Thanks mate.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he would be an interesting signing, if it had been up to me we would have pursued him in the summer gone rather than Robertson.}

16 Oct 2017 08:12:59
Yeah his contract does indeed end next year - if I'd of known that in the summer I'd of thought the same, makes me wonder why we went for Robertson in this case.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, I never saw the point in signing him anyway.}

16 Oct 2017 08:43:02
Makes no sense to buy Ghoulam unless Robertson is given a fair chance. Otherwise why buy him in the first place?
Salah was the only good business this summer. Looks like even Klopp does not rate his own recruits.

Agree6 1Disagree

16 Oct 2017 09:24:32
I don't understand why Robertson isn't been played either. If we are going for Ghoulam to me it says either A. We know we shouldn't of got Robertson or B. We want to offload Moreno. Was Robertson a panic buy and the only LB we could get at the time? who knows, but right now I can't get my head around us getting him, it was a pointless signing but since he's here I want to see more of him, he deserves to be given a chance but he's not getting it. Maybe more is going on behind the scenes, I wouldn't know.

Agreed on Salah, He's absolutely fantastic just needs to work on finishing a little but overall he's outstanding, I really rate the fella. Was gutted he didn't score the other day, he deserved a goal.

Agree15 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 10:06:20
Goulham is a good player and one of the prominent members of high flying Napoli team. I have no idea why they haven’t offered a new contract ( certainly nothing to do with his quality ) he is an ideal player into klopp’s system. In fact it’s no brainer to pick anyon from Napoli. They are carbon copy of liverpool. I would have gone for him in th summer!

Agree3 2Disagree

16 Oct 2017 12:30:25
WE bought Robertson because he was a cheaper alternative. I watched him for Scotland in the two recent qualifiers and he looked awful. He is not the quality of player who should be wearing an LFC shirt.
If he can't get a place in front of Moreno then that says it all.

I can only suspect he's there to keep Moreno on his toes.

Agree3 2Disagree

16 Oct 2017 12:50:37
Faouzi Ghoulam will be very expensive (gestifute will make sure of that) and if he comes to the EPL it will most likely be to go to Chelsea or Man City.

Agree0 4Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is out of contract in the summer.}

16 Oct 2017 13:35:22
Him been out of contract must be down to him, surely they've offered him one? I'm guessing due to interest from other clubs, he's going to see out his contract and see what offers he gets.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 14:23:50
Reynard, he will not go to Man city to be back up for Mendy. Chelsea also have Alonso who is doing pretty well. If Ghoulam wants regular first team football, LFC can give him that. But it makes the Robertson signing all the more baffling. Klopp does not rate him by the looks of it, so why sign him? Should have kept Milner as competition for Moreno at LB. Salah aside, the entire summer transfer window was a utter an dismal failure for LFC.

Agree2 2Disagree

17 Oct 2017 06:57:01
He will follow the money IMO.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Oct 2017 11:43:10
Ed001what's your gut feeling on Liverpool going into the transfer market in January? I know it's not a ideal time to move buy we really are crying our for a CB and a DM.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - I expect us to try once more for VVD to be honest.}

15 Oct 2017 12:30:48
Should we not get VVD I fear De Vrij could be a target, surely not? I can't think off the top of my head who would be available/ want to join us in Jan or even summer, somebody good enough that is. De Vrij isn't, he wouldn't improve us at all but his name is been banded about and I don't like the idea of it one bit.

Agree1 2Disagree

15 Oct 2017 12:25:48
Ed 001 who can your realistically see us singing in the next two windows? I know it’s guess work but who would you sign?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there will be a few choruses of You'll Never Walk Alone. ;-)

Seriously, not a clue, VVD is still wanted but looks out of reach. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a right back brought in though as well as a centre back.

I really do not know who I would sign, it is still a long way off January and that is not really the time to do any major squad work. The summer will be dictated in large part by the World Cup.}

15 Oct 2017 14:05:29
Okay thank you Ed! Definitely want a CB in Jan.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Oct 2017 20:25:59
Lucas played 90 minutes for Lazio in a 2 _1 win at juventus they ain't been beat there for time he would been ideal patrolling in front of defence this season til we get someone else too do job allowing front 5 too do there thing, saves money if u keep the right players playing in right positions also wid valuable experience.

Agree3 2Disagree

15 Oct 2017 21:23:42
Vvd most definitely is not the answer to our defensive woes. As Eds1 said about a year ago he daydreams.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Oct 2017 23:56:37
Maybe he day dreaming bout us, there are other centre backs out there crazy we can't identify any an bring them in too add strength too our weaknesses.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Oct 2017 20:43:36
Ed001 - is the news of a right back because TAA and Gomez aren't progressing as quickly as possible. Or are they looking to move Gomez into the centre?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because Clyne is unwanted and TAA is not expected to have a future there. Long term Gomez is expected to move central, but not for a couple of seasons at least.}

15 Oct 2017 22:06:54
I'm surprised you say we may look for a right back considering how well Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been playing in that position - surely it would only limit their chances in the team?

Unless of course Gomez is to be used at centre back and TAA in midfield/ on the wing going forward.

Thoughts Ed001?

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - TAA has not been impressing though, he has struggled defensively.}

16 Oct 2017 01:08:00
You mention that you think a right back will come in, I'd have thought that would be the least of our worries with TAA, Gomez, Flanno and Clyne all on the books. Are you expecting multiple departures in January?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is completely unwanted, he was playing last season out of necessity, he is going as soon as the club can get rid. Flanno is still not anywhere near his best and TAA is struggling with the defensive side and is likely to move into midfield.}

16 Oct 2017 03:01:37
Another RB? Looks like Clyne's days are numbered and Gomez might be going back to CB. Not convinced by VVD still especially at 70 million pounds. Klopp needs to get this right with the fees being bandied about.
Any idea which RB the club might look to? Plus we also need a striker with Sturridge not making an impression and both Origi and INgs unlikely to get a look in again. Timo Werner would be a great addition. Along with Gabriel Jesus, he is the other young striker i am most impressed with.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Henrichs, Pereira, Tete, Marusic - off the top of my head we have looked at all four, though it is a long way off so not yet sure which is likely, as it is probably going to be for the summer. The RB was about the next 2 windows. Clyne's days have been numbered for a while.}

16 Oct 2017 09:25:05
Ed good info as usual mate, regarding VVD you say you expect us to push for him in Han but you also say he looks out of reach? Just puzzled as why we don't look at another CB if indeed he is out if reach.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because he is the one Klopp really wants.}

16 Oct 2017 10:13:10
Interesting your comments ed 01, I have thought for a while Trent more suited too a midfield role, I can't believe we don't want clyne he is best right back we have, Gomez is excellent but inexperienced an more suited too centre back, again with all this in mind jus points too really bad preparation in transfer window for such a pivotal season, we also have baggage of 3 quality players who are on there way out an don't want too b with us.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is awful. What good is a player who can't attack nor defend?}

16 Oct 2017 12:32:54
Gomez's development is on track. If he continues to perform like he did last Saturday when he showed a maturity well beyond his tender years I can see him becoming a fixture of this LFC side.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Oct 2017 13:40:40
Gomez is the real deal for me to be honest I think he's got a huge part to play for us.

Ed002 if I may ask - Is there any truth to Barcelona been interested in van Dijk that you know of?

Believable3 0Unbelievable

15 Oct 2017 00:28:10

{Ed002's Note - you are welcome.}

12 Oct 2017 18:29:36
Is thomas lemar still seen as an option or was he ever truly an option? Reason I'm asking is if we are going for the likes of a lemar it would surely put to bed a new striker coming in as I doubt we would spend however much on lemar and a striker to leave one sitting on the bench. Lemar would be seen as a replacement for coutinho I would imagine. Gk and CBS are priorities. I know klopp has said Marius is his no1 and now mignolet is no1 but surely he can't be that naive to think either is good enough. Mignolet was at his level at Sunderland and karius while I admit didn't get a proper crack of the whip still doesn't fill me with confidence. Least I say about the cbs the better. Think Gomez should be giving a go. Surely he can't do worse than what's already going on at the back. Anyway enough moaning I'm going 2-0 Liverpool on Saturday . let's put mourinho back in his box.

Believable4 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool were one of many clubs that showed various levels of interest in Lemar but he was not going to be joining Liverpool this past summer. Next summer Liverpool May elect to considering him as a replacement for Coutinho.}

12 Oct 2017 21:29:31
Cheers ed002. Appreciate the reply.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Oct 2017 12:52:16
Ed002 now that your about would I be right in thinking that Couthino unless he has a massive change of heart he'll be off in the summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - he still wants out I understands. Liverpool can block a move.}

13 Oct 2017 15:52:57
Thanks for the reply Ed. It's gone on a bit now just get a much for him as we can and move him on I say.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I think thoughts will turn to him leaving next summer.}

13 Oct 2017 17:49:57
My feelings exactly Ed thank's a million.

Agree2 1Disagree

14 Oct 2017 15:58:25
Lemars preference for arsenal is due to their consistent appearance in the CL, he would prefer Liverpool if we can stay in the CL and retain a place. No move will be made unless Coutinho goes, that's unlikely until the summer even though we were told it's now or never, Barcelona are quickly realising their position of power is fading, dembele out long term, they have to show massive support politically to the Catalonian cause, a lot of Spanish players aren't quite fancying them anymore. Interesting times ahead for Barcelona, not particularly positive either.

Agree3 1Disagree

15 Oct 2017 08:52:21
Jbleftpeg not entirely sure what anyone could disagree with there. Arsenal had 20 years of ECL so better bet still than us.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Oct 2017 00:33:49
I heard Lemar was open for a move to LFC, but they never bid anything close to what Monaco wanted.
