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.

18 Mar 2019 23:59:49
Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts and the More Liverpool Posts pages.

Hi eds . great job you all do
Just wondering if Reals interest in Mane is firmed up who do you see replacing him
On previous transfer rumours you have often replied . if one of the front three leave.
So if he were to go who would you like to replace him with and who do you actually think we will get?

Believable0 4Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I think you are rather jumping the gun here.}

I wouldn't worry about it just yet. Mane is happy at Liverpool.

I think their main priority will be Hazard.

A lot of noise/ cobsistancy from several papers claiming Contact made about benfica, ferro, 21yr CB.
I don't believe the prices qouted 85m buy out for unproven but seems loan 8m + opt to buy was rejected last year.

He only has 10 senior appearances. I'd think we'd like to see a bit more of him at senior level before making such an investment.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Francisco Ferreira was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced in order to turn any potential buyers away, such as Manchester City, West Ham and Borussia Dortmund who have also shown a little interest and watched him in the B side over the past 18 months.}

18 Mar 2019 17:19:56
Thanks Ed002. It's the first that I've seen about him. Surely nobody with any sense would pay such an obscene amount of money for someone with so little senior experience.

Reece-Oxford of West Ham springs to mind. He had an amazing debut at 16 against Arsenal (also MOTM if I remember correctly) and looked good in his other appearances, but he's nowhere near their first team now.

Jack Robinson is another good example.

10 appearances? A lot of it depends on the mentality of the person. Lots of players (not just defenders) have had really bright starts to their career and tailed off because they didn't have the right mindset to play at the highest level and to keep improving.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, I would not expect anyone to be paying anything like such an amount.}

18 Mar 2019 23:19:41
The way I read the story is that we’re interested in this young player, his buyout clause is £85m or some such number, therefore we are prepared to break the record.

Can anyone else see the leap the ‘journalists’ have made? 😉😂.

Goodmorning Eds and Reds. Eds are we looking to strngthen the RB position by bringing in a new right back in the summer since Klopp doesn't rate Clyne or do we have a youngster that will be promoted like TAA? Thanks for your time.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - it is probably the priority from what I am told.}

17 Mar 2019 08:50:28
Hey Ed could you add anything to that. As in, would it be someone that we would want to go straight into the starting 11 and TAA become backup RB/ CM.? Or are you not too sure at this stage.?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - why would either be a back up when the intention is to build a squad that can compete on all fronts?}

17 Mar 2019 09:13:06
Thanks for your reply Ed001.Are you aware of any possible targets that we are taking a look at?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head no, though I know we were interested in the lad Madrid just bought from Porto, Eder Militao.}

17 Mar 2019 10:11:37
Previously thought Ricardo Periera of Leicester would be a good addition to cover both fullback positions due to his versatility but then I have seen him shirk out of a number of challenges since joining them. Not sure Klopp would be too impressed by that.
Maybe Heinrichs or Calabria could be options?
Not sure we need a CB if Gomez can stay fit.

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Mar 2019 11:20:08
Ed1, because TAA is young and still learning his trade (even tho i think he is great already) so if the thought was bringing an older established RB in, and my understanding that TAA may be slowly intergrated into midfield at some stage, this makes sense to me to have him competing/ covering both RB and CM next year if we have 1 or 2 midfielders leave in the summer. that is all i was meaning and asking mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Mar 2019 12:07:30
Wan Bissaka aaah dreamland.

Agree3 1Disagree

17 Mar 2019 12:39:58
If it’s priority then Ed mate no doubt TAA will move into Midfield next season as you’ve suggested could happen in time.

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Mar 2019 12:50:40
I’d argue that we have quite a lot of depth at rb currently TAA, Gomez, Milner, Clyne, Camacho have all played in this position at sometime or other this season. Not to mention possibly Ki-Jana Hoever in the next 18-24 months will be knocking on the door for regular first team football. Granted Clyne could be moved on, and Gomez will inevitably end up at centre back. Personally can’t see TAA evolution into the middle of the park in the next couple of seasons at least, trouble is he’s just to valuable to the team where he is at the moment! Can’t see the point of bringing in established names as above on high wages, stunting the opportunity for the younger guys. However if pushed I’d happily bring in Max Aarons from Norwich and have him Camacho, Hoever compete for the role long term.

Agree1 6Disagree

17 Mar 2019 16:48:20
Clyne is as good as gone, he's not going to get a new contract. Milner might also be on his way in the summer. Camacho, I just don't see things working out for him at Liverpool. We're in need of another RB. Wan Bissaka would be a great signing, rotate him with Trent or push Trent up to the midfield more often.

Agree5 2Disagree

17 Mar 2019 17:29:02
I don't get all the calls to get trent into midfield as we see toady the full backs are so important for the way we play. Then we have to find a right back that can get up and down like trent does.

Agree8 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 08:08:54
Grino, his passing range is limited at right back and considering he’s already technically one of our best passers at 20 it makes sense, he has excellent shooting too, there’s plenty of excellent young right backs we could sign to allow Trent to unleash his full potential, wan bissaka and Aaron’s would be good and home grown.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 15:44:10
I haven't noticed the improvement in TAA needed to be the starting right back for LFC.

There is a reason City always attack us down our right when we play them.

A good footballer, potentially an excellent footballer, but not a defender.

Agree1 1Disagree

13 Mar 2019 17:28:13
I'm hearing that citeh are looking into the signing of coutinho. Brodg is looking at sturridge to play with vardy and klopp is more than willing to wait until he has seen what the youngsters and loanees I. e grujic, Wilson can bring to the team during pre season. There will be no new left back as it stands due to Lewis developing well however this could all change should milner leave and Lewis no show enough during pre season. Klopp is looking at an experienced gk so as to help the youngsters along and also to be happy with a secondary subs role. Matip will be going as he is not reliable both from an injury and playing perspective. Again his replacement could well be Phillips but ginter, and another the young centre backs are being looked at by Edwards.

Believable4 36Unbelievable

13 Mar 2019 18:48:27
Sounds about right but I'd be surprised if Coutinho went to City. I'm not bothered if he does mind, let them have him! but I can't see it happening personally.

Not aimed at the OP at all, but whatever happened to the bloke that was apparently ITK last transfer window and was always saying he told us about this signing and that signing?

We don't want him back at Liverpool VakPa, we've done miles better since he left lol why would we want him back?

His behaviour was enough for me to say sod him, he's not welcome at Liverpool. If he had a little respect for the club I'd of understood some saying they'd have him back but he didn't therefore he can bugger off. He's not the be all and end all, never was and never will be. Since he left we've seen Firmino up his game massively, I know who I'd prefer in the team and it's not that little turd.

14 Mar 2019 10:04:24
Couts in a swap deal for Jesus or Pogba?
Nah I can't see it, I'm guessing his wife has been to Manchester and would be against going to United or City. Bayern or PSG much more likely imo.

Agree4 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 11:14:01
Salah i know we are doing great without him but having him as an option to rotate with Mane and to be able to play in middlefield with his dribbling magic pass will be perfect. He knows the way we play and have friends here he won’t need time to settle down. I know the way he left was disappointing but he did it to get his Dream i can forgive him. that's the way sometimes in today’s football to get what you want VanDijk did it .
Now Coutinho is struggling in his Dream club if we take him back he will try to win us back and gives us his best years. I hope we get him if possible i can't see other player better than him who can play lw am cm rw for us.

Agree7 7Disagree

14 Mar 2019 11:35:25
am i mistaken but didn't Firminosteeth have multiple accounts? it may be im totally wrong and imagined it though. just thinking has he got a new name again.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 13:05:22
VakPa, I believe Coutinhos best buddy at LFC was Moreno and Bobby (his compatriot) didn't really associate with him outside the club or live near him.

As for Firminosteeth, him and his alias's are best forgotten. I'm sure the Eds could remind us but have better things to do like breathing and dreaming of last night, especially Ed025!

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 13:58:24
I can assure everyone that I have NO connection to ferminosteeth. I was merely passing on some 'rumours' that I had been told. I thought it was something of interest and open for a discussion on the rumours page. Apologies if I have offended. I have supported lfc for over 35 years asking with my dad and grandad so I have no ulterior motive for being on this site other than engaging with fellow Reds.

Agree8 1Disagree

14 Mar 2019 22:33:26
I never understood the logic of those that think we’re a much better team without Coutinho and then go and pronounce that Fekir or suchlike will be a great signing?

Agree2 5Disagree

15 Mar 2019 12:58:51
Because most fans are fickle The Juicer, pride and ignorance comes in the way of their better judgement. Salah was right when he posted we did better without Couts ; its most likely a coincidence, and I personally think we could've done even better with Coutinho in the team, he could've turned these draws against Leicester and Westham into wins . we will never know and I am very happy with the team we have now and grateful that we had the likes of Coutinho and even Suarez played for us.

Agree3 2Disagree

15 Mar 2019 13:19:42
I don't get why "rumours" (no matter how outlandish or improbable they may sound) get so savagely put down or attacked on this page now. Wasn't this site built on rumours?

People seem to be far more tolerant of differing opinions on lineups, tactics and strategies and everything else, that all of us seem to have. Doesn't make sense to me. 😵.

15 Mar 2019 19:43:09
ArAy1969 I love a rumour, but in the form of 'my mates a realtor and supposedly has been asked to move in so and so', or the days of the Babble Copter. Genuine rumours that tended to have some truth in them, or at the very least some novelty. Its more the nature of the rumours.

Rumours based on the principle of randomly picking a player and linking them to a club get tedious. Especially when they're just rehashing's of nonsense made up by gossip columns.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 22:30:29
Eamonsf I understand your point but I can assure you my information has not come from any gossip column or bored twitter user I did intentionally leave out how I came to learn of this information as firstly I didn't want to provide details of where the information came from as it would not be fair on the person it came from as I know people would then continually squeeze for more detail and more proof and secondly I do believe it made sense when I assessed the information prior to deciding to place it on this site. I fully appreciate the eds, as busy as they are so not wish for every bit of gossip, rumour or story however I thought it was a valid bit of information open for debate with a valid basis. Again I apologise and note that a lesson has been learned in the process.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has made no approach for Coutinho. They are looking for an AM player and have three they have identified - Coutinho i not one. I don't see that changing.}

16 Mar 2019 05:37:27
United fan in peace.

For what it’s worth I don’t see coutinho back in the prem, there’s no way city or united would spend what he’d cost on him, and as much as I hate to admit it, your first choice front line is more than good enough to blow a hundred mil on coutinho who would expect to be first choice. You’d be better off using that money for a versatile defender and a couple of up and coming mids/ attackers. So unless arsenal or Chelsea decide to spaff nearly all their budget on him there’s little chance we’ll see him in the prem again.

Agree6 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 08:30:52
Agree with Pogbas Hair (never thought I’d say that 😂) .
Coutinho’s playing and financial values don’t match up at present.
If he moves, perhaps it’s PSG or a Bayern re-boot?
I still think that he’d fit like a glove for us but he severely p’ed off Klopp at the manner of his departure from Liverpool and he won’t be coming back from that.

Fekir 55-60m Werner 55-60m Brandt 25-30m B. Fernandes 55-60m Aouar 55-60m
How much Coutinho should cost to be ok? He is better and proven in the premier league can play RW AM LW LM CM.
26 years old for me if 55-60m is ok and maybe we can negotiate a better deal because they owe us money deom the transfer.

Been some time since my last post, as it’s been some time since I had word from any of my sources. Granted this isn’t ‘big’ news. I was told Mo had looked really sharp and focused in training since Burnley. He also was more vocal than previously and told several other players to prove how good they were. Seems he really wants to crank the pressure up on city.

I thought I’d share. I know, not overly insightful, but as it’s been hard to get anything, Even the smallest thing may interest some.

Peace.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 05:25:38
Thanks - the flow between the front three was really good against Burnley. Some benefit has to go to Lallana who got between the lines, but Mo looked really sharp as well as (of course) Mané and Firmino who scored 2 each. I hope we’re hitting another patch of form at just the right time.

Let’s go on to beat Bayern as that will be another big boost.

Agree5 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 08:48:14
I've never been a massive fan of Lallana but after his performance on Sunday I actually think I'd like him to keep his place for the game later.

Agree5 3Disagree

13 Mar 2019 10:15:01
We should hit a vein of good form from now on as our style and tactics all season were planned with this to be possible. And on the other hand the weaker squads should be finding the going a lot tougher.
Cooome on ye red men!

Agree3 1Disagree

13 Mar 2019 17:35:51
lallana when free from injury's and a good few successive games under or belts is in our top three players.
shame he has his problems as he is a big benefit to the team.

{Ed025's Note - top 3 players???, come on walter mate hes not even in the top 10..

13 Mar 2019 18:02:01
Love a rumour/ insight that hasn't just been taken off a gossip website, cheers DDay1892.

Haha not sure Lallana makes our top 3 players at his best with Van Dijk, Alisson, Salah, Mane, Firmino etc in the squad, but each to their own Walter.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 18:56:12
Lallana is not in the top 3 players, But when he his on form he fits the pressing game so well in the middle of the park a few season ago before the injury he was pivotal to how we played. ; All ways one of the players to start the press. I thought the days had gone and did not want him in the team Sunday but he was are star player and if he can keep playing like that till the end off the season he would add something that has been missing from are midfield 3 this season.

Agree3 0Disagree

Llalana is definitely not one of our top 3. He slows play down with the amount of touches he has to take, he doesn’t offer enough of a goal threat and the lad can not stay fit. Technically decent but it wouldn’t affect the team if he were to seek first team opportunities elsewhere.

Agree0 0Disagree

Is Julian Brandt still an option in the summer. Would be a really good addition.

Believable2 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - If he were available Liverpool might be interested if the price is good, but it difficult to see where he would fit in. There is a little interest from elsewhere which has been shunned because of playing time.}

10 Mar 2019 20:05:45
It think he would be a brilliant addition for a rotation with the front three and in midfield. He has tremendous potential to be world class in my opinion. I'd love to have him with liverpool.

Agree14 2Disagree

10 Mar 2019 21:48:39
I agree he would be great across the front and I think he would be used a lot more and the other threee rested more. Type of player we need to come in for me.

An upgrade on Sturridge and Origi. Brandt and Brewster would be more than able replacements.

Plus we have Grujic to return next season and still Chamberlain to come back.

Agree8 2Disagree

10 Mar 2019 23:48:45
I like him in the midfield, really plays to his strengths on the ball though he'd be fantastic cover for the wings as well. Great player with a buyout clause that makes him incredibly appealing.

Issue is the player is prioritising game time (can't blame him) and while he'd definitely get a fair bit of playing time at Liverpool, I don't think it would be anything close to what he's after (first team week in, week out) .

Agree7 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 03:14:45
Brilliant signing if we can make it happen. Quality cover for Mane (who operates more as a playmaker than winger anyways which would suit Brandt to a tee) and he will get plenty of game time in midfield as well. We need quality players like Bradt to allow for rotation, changing tactics between games and push the current players to perform even better.

Agree6 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 10:24:40
I agree IB he would be a top addition and would get plenty game time. The front 3 need competition and he would provide that and all 4 could play in some games as well. I would consider sell Shaq as well, Brandt would be an upgrade IMO.

Agree4 2Disagree

11 Mar 2019 11:26:23
Agree about Shaq mark. He is already struggling to get on the pitch ahead of Lallana and Origi. If we get someone like Brandt and Wilson impresses in pre season along with OX returning, it spells bad news for Shaq. The midfield will be completely stacked, Shaq is not good enough to displace any of our front 3 players and let's not forget he was signed only after the Fekir deal fell through.
Shaq's already had issues at previous clubs and left due to insufficient game time. If we can double what we paid for him last summer and Klopp is willing to let him go to fund the transfer of a player like Brandt (who imo is an upgrade with a much higher ceiling), then moving him on makes sense.

16 Mar 2019 05:44:15
I can see Brandt going to Bayern over Liverpool, I don’t think he’d make the move to be a back up. which he would obviously be for you. As for selling Shaqiri: you’d be mad! He was the perfect squad signing and can keep that going, he knows his place in your squad and is proven in making the difference when called upon. One of the best signings of anyone last year IMO.

Coutinho can play LW AM RW CM he can rotate with the front three and in the middle. I understand he faked injuries because he wanted his DREAM move but he was doing great with us. apart from that he has friends here in Firmino Moreno and now we have Alisson Fabinho he will feel at home here and he will give us his best years.
Just imagine
Alisson-A. Arnold-Gomez-VanDijk-Robertson-Fabinho-Keita-Coutinho-Salah-Mane-Firmino.

Agree7 9Disagree

11 Mar 2019 10:25:47
I think we have moved on as a club and are better off without him. Don't think he works hard enough off the ball and he is a high light player that looks better than he is because of the goals he scores but how many shots does he have but fore one goes in would much prefer are front 3 over him and in the middle ox all day for me. I know he has more ability on the ball than ox but look how hard david silva kevin de bruyne and bernardo silva. Think its time to move on.

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 11:24:53
Asensio is apparently available in the summer for £69m apparently, I would much rather we buy him. Amazing player with serious potential, probably cheaper than Countinho (not that I would want to see him back) don't get me wrong, Coutinho was an amazing player for us, but he cooked his goose with the fans over how he acted trying to leave - well he did for me anyway!

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - is Asensio really amazing?}

11 Mar 2019 13:17:53
I loved Couts during his time at Liverpool. However, I wouldn't be happy if we were to take him back. I just think for the price we could do better in terms of signing a player that would fit Klopps system. For me, id go all out to sign Son from Spurs. I don't think they'd sell unfortunately. And Levy isn't exactly a dream to deal with either.

Agree1 1Disagree

11 Mar 2019 14:17:01
Are you seriously saying you would prefer Son to Coutinho.

We will not be getting him back, but coutinho is a wonderful player. creative and game changing, just what we need in games such as west ham and Leicester.

Agree1 2Disagree

11 Mar 2019 15:03:19
We drastically improved when Coutinho left last season. We are currently having one of our best seasons ever. We do not miss him. When we play against deep defences Coutinho is not the answer, we had the same struggles vs this kind of strategy the entire time Coutinho was with us.

Agree1 1Disagree

When did we drastically improve after Coutinho left? 1st Jan 2018 we were 3rd in the prem at the end of the season we were 4th. We started to concede less goals due to VVD coming but we didn't score more league goals.

Of course we miss him to some extent. Did you not watch the Man U or the Everton games, this is when he could have made the difference.

I don't think either will ever happen but, if push came to shove, I would definitely have Son over Coutinho. Coutinho is excellent don't get me wrong, but Son's all round game is superb and he is an absolute grafter. He'd suit out style perfectly as well.

Agree4 1Disagree

Coutinho was in and out of games and went missing a lot. Then he would bang a worldie in and all would be forgotten. He really should get more time and space in the Spanish league to do his stuff. So if he's struggling is really a player we would want back for £100 mill plus. No thanks move on don't go back.

Agree0 1Disagree

11 Mar 2019 21:36:01
The fee alone make him unobtainable before you consider the other factors, such as how he left, how well we played without him, the cost, his overall salary etc etc.

We should move on, he’s not worth the £100 million being mentioned for me. For that we could sign both Fekir and Brandt with change to spare.

Agree2 0Disagree

For the crazy amount of money for buying Countinho, I predict he will just end up staying at Barcelona for maybe 2 more seasons. Luckily he would have some game time but definitely the the star player of them. And finally he would end up like Cesc Fabregas, leaving there cheap to Italy maybe?

What do you think about my prediction Eds?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him sold and will drop the price if they need to - selling him obviously saves them money on payments to Liverpool.}

12 Mar 2019 22:42:44
So we get kicked twice then? Losing him to Barcelona and now losing what I would imagine would be a significant chunk of his transfer fee because they want to sell him. I know we don’t like to talk money but that’s kind of kicking us twice - why would anyone want him back (unless it’s so we can sell him again and get paid something?! )

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 03:29:34
Maybe we can do something to negotiate a good deal involving the payments left.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 21:07:02
That’s confusing, why would it save them money on payments to us? Surely any money owed has to be honoured regardless of whether he is there or not? Or are we talking about add ons for appearances, etc?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - We are talking about a large sum of money that would be due if he stayed, played and Barcelona were successful. I have explained the structure of the fee before. Sadly many of the fans don’t believe it.}

Hi Eds

This my first post, so apologies if the subject has already been discussed. I was reading on the BBC Gossip page that LFC are looking for a premiership loan deal for Harry Wilson next season. Is there any truth in this? I'm just surprised after the season he is having with Derby, I think he could make a difference for us next season, rather than go out on loan.

Believable2 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Welcome. I have no doubt that there will be plenty of interest in taking Wilson on loan and permanently. He is now of an age where he will be looking for a regular start and I doubt Liverpool can realistically offer him that. For Liverpool a loan to a Premier League side would be a good solution, but I don't know how the player feels about that.}

10 Mar 2019 10:17:36
Funnily enough I was contemplating this yesterday evening.
Who do we bring on if Salah or Mane need a breather? At thee moment I think it would be Shaq but he’s a very inconsistent performer in my opinion and is not going to improve.
I think there is a place for Wilson as first choice sub for Mane/ Salah and also in rotation/ competition for places.
He would give us more than Shaq in my opinion.

The same goes for Bobby needing a replacement and Brewster being given a chance. For me they are very different styles, Bobby is a workhorse and Brewster is a poacher, but the team must adapt and be able to incorporate different styles for different challenges.

Agree10 5Disagree

10 Mar 2019 10:21:58
I think it all depends on whether he truly believes that Klopp still has him in his plans, although we all know how many times he has said things and not followed through.

He is probaby ready for the step up I just think it is too. If a jump at the moment to to us, BUT pre season is a chance to change that view!

Agree3 3Disagree

10 Mar 2019 10:37:45
'He would give us more than Shaq in my opinion'

Agreed Ron. It's one of them for me, I wouldn't moan if he went out on loan to another PL side but at the same time I can't imagine he'd be very happy about that and he's a player who imo we should be keeping hold of. Give the lad his chance and see what he's capable of at the top level.

Agree8 5Disagree

10 Mar 2019 11:00:49
Morning all.
I agree with the idea of youngsters coming into the match day squad though there’s little point in them doing ‘a Solanke’ and bench warming every game?
They need to get plenty of game time and play a meaningful role.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Mar 2019 11:26:27
I'm not convinced on Wilson. He looks good in parts for Derby but there are times he just doesn't show up. In my opinion, he's not good enough for Liverpool at present. Whether a bit of Klopps positivity and inspiration might push him along a bit remains to be seen. I've been to 10/ 12 Derby games this season in which he's featured. He's played better than ok in maybe 3 or 4 of them. Other than that sweet left peg, I just don't see why all the hype at the moment.

Agree7 2Disagree

10 Mar 2019 15:13:35
Basically he's a world class free kick taker and an average winger. Not enough for me to play for Liverpool.

Agree1 5Disagree

10 Mar 2019 17:32:14
Surely that’s where having a world class attacking coach at the club may bring more out of Wilson also he’d be playing with a lot better players hence he wouldn’t be man marked the way he has been for the last month or so.

Agree3 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 06:53:09
I don’t know how it works but I guess Barcelona still owe us money from the Coutinho sale, so would the fee be as much as being quoted?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 05:50:11
Having lived in Brighton, if they stay up I reckon he’d be very welcome there for a season loan!

Good morning Eds. I recall last year there were rumors that Liverpool were interested in Karim Demirbay. I used the search engine and noticed he hasn't been mentioned since the fall. I was just curious to know if there really was any interest and, if so, if that interest continues.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been added in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.}

09 Mar 2019 20:34:41
Thank you Ed. It's very much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Mar 2019 07:09:59
Good morning Ed’s, do you have any insight into the Timo Werner rumours? Think he’d be an awesome addition to the squad 🤞.

Believable1 6Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any rumours. He wants to move to BM and has sorted out personal terms through his agent. But BM have not agreed any prices with BD at this time - and that will stretch on to the summer.}

07 Mar 2019 09:48:57
Thanks Ed002, appreciate your time as always.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Mar 2019 11:29:09
Ed002 can i ask you who are we targeting besides Werner, Brandt, Insigne, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, Laxalt and Fryer? And Who do you think we should sign to rotate with the forwards? Sturrdige is leaving, Origi is leaving, Lallana is leaving and the only youngster ready seems to be Wilson.
Thanks!

Agree0 3Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I think you have missed something in what I have said. Firstly you can scratch Felix from the list. Insigne would only be an iption if Mane of Salah left. I am pretty sure that the club will walk away from Laxalt as well. Brewster should be able to step in and cover for both Sturridge and Origi if they are leaving.}

07 Mar 2019 12:25:33
Thanks Ed002! Then cover for the front 3 will be Wilson, Brewster, Shaqiri, Ox and maybe Woodburn. I like it lacks experience but they will be hungry!
Can i ask you if we are not going for Laxalt who are we looking for and who do you think we should get?

Agree0 3Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are making it sound like everything is finalised. I have shared everything I know at this time.}

07 Mar 2019 12:44:34
ed002 have you much of Brewster if so how good is he where would you put him nest to the likes of Owen and Fowler at the same age. I do think the level of defenders now to when Owen and Fowler was coming through is nowhere near the same level what should help him though.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I cannot compare players like that but the club thin he is great and Klopp has given him commitments about playing time.}

07 Mar 2019 12:57:44
Ok! Thanks Ed002!

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Mar 2019 13:30:00
A lot of people are forgetting Grujic is having a great season at Hertha. Expect him to get a chance next season.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - If he can get a Work Permit.}

07 Mar 2019 13:00:49
Considering how Mahrez and Sane seem to be struggling to nail down a first team berth at City, its possible Klopp maybe feels spending big on someone who can only play as a forward may be a luxury considering our front 3 rarely get injured. In that case, getting in a creative No.10 who can also play upfront would be the ideal scenario and explains Klopp's interest in Fekir last summer.

Question for Ed002:

Who in you opinion would be the ideal signing that can play as a CAM and cover for our front 3?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I don't think anyone could cover for the front three and play AM, including Fekir. Liverpool have looked at Bruno Fernandes (AM) and perhaps Pablo Sarabia has the skill set you want.}

07 Mar 2019 20:24:13
There’s high hopes for Brewster, he certainly has an eye for goal.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - the problem is drogie that a lot of the time these young prodigy,s dont reach their potential, they get a bit of money, a bit of stinky and a bit of fame and lose focus, the footballing world is littered with young guys who looked really good early on then lost their way mate, its a lottery..

07 Mar 2019 19:30:53
Is our interest in Bruno Fernandes recent Ed and is he obtainable.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Really pricey Virg.}

07 Mar 2019 21:16:43
I agree with ed 25, a lot of people seem to be hanging their hat on Brewster who is completely unproven. I hope as much as the next bloke that he’s the next Rashford but there’s 100’s of Jerome Sinclair’s for every Rashford.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - your right there mate..

07 Mar 2019 21:26:00
The amount of pressure from expectation people are already putting on him is madness ed.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed025's Note - it really is hopeful, i would love to see him come through but he needs to progress in his own time mate..

08 Mar 2019 06:56:12
It’s so hard to predict these young kids, I don’t think Rashford was rated that highly at Utd, there seemed to be more buzz coming out of OT about Wilson previously and look what’s happened to both their careers.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Mar 2019 22:19:18
Thanks very much for the info Ed2.

Agree1 2Disagree

07 Mar 2019 22:30:13
Hmm 🤔 ok Ed cheers mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2019 12:03:43
No one is hanging their hat on Brewster.
The lad is a good and he showed his worth in the World Cup and I’ve seen him play a number of times

It all boils down to his desire and determination to succeed, he certainly has the talent.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Mar 2019 10:26:44
Very true Ed - the gulf in quality from u23 and PL is huge, so there are plenty of kids that look awesome but don’t make it. If you look at the likes of Rashford, Kane and others, it’s hard to predict who will make it as it often comes down to character than potential.

Brewster seems to have the goods, but I hope we have a top backup forward on the bench next year and not just hoping Brewster can come on and change games in his first season.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - you have to be very careful with players like brewster SG, the kid is very talented but to throw him in at the deep end could ruin him, i know people will say if your good enough your old enough but thats not always the case, it has to be slowly slowly catchee monkey for me mate and he will be ready when the coaches say he is ready..

08 Mar 2019 16:54:27
Speaking of youngsters I remember people saying Jordan ibe and ojo were were better then sterling by academy coaches and for one reason or another sterling grew the other halted just shows you can never know hard work is the only way.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - your right dezy..

08 Mar 2019 21:02:25
I'm sure there's people on here that watch more German football than I do. What is it with Werner? Is he the real deal? I only watched him at the world cup and was very unimpressed. I do realise that he was part of a whole team that completely under-performed but for me, I didn't see one thing that he did that impressed me. I'd be happy to hear what others think though.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Mar 2019 07:26:07
I'm with you EP, he's not all he's cracked up to be mate.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Mar 2019 10:51:22
Werner? Untested at the highest level is my appraisal.

Agree1 1Disagree

10 Mar 2019 08:08:26
Agree with RK Werner does look a talent but the gamble of coming to another league is big the prem is quicker stronger in the tackle and more demanding although I think we need competition for firmino to push him I don’t think werner is the man for it . I see jovic as better suited to us but the Ed’s have said no interest in him from us .
