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.

24 Mar 2019 19:55:26
Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts and the More Liverpool Posts pages.

Hi Ed's,

I was wondering what the general consensus was with the buzz surrounding Pablo Sarabia. He seems to be a bit of a gem and a late (ish) developer.

Sevilla is of course a great club, but does he have higher ambitions and moreover is there clubs willing to accommodate him?

Of course this is a Liverpool rumour site, so I'll be specific, do you see him as a good fit in Liverpool

Thanks
Kev.

So Liverpool are looking at possibly cutting there losses with Naby Keita with Bayern Munich and Dortmund interested in taking him and possibly losing a 10 million loss.

Is this true Ed as every time Klopp talks about Naby he talks highly of him.

Believable0 3Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any discussions regarding a transfer or money between clubs, and he is another example of where people really don't understand what he cost the club. However, he is represented by an agency that could well be making enquiries to see what interest there is. Bayern Munich seems unlikely as they are looking to a specific senior CM player to arrive in 2020. Dortmund have been looking at two younger CM players but they are looking to add one.}

I don't believe that bled. obviously no inside information, but it makes absolutely no sense at all. I read the same report and rolled my eyes.

I heard an interesting rumour that Liverpool may be raiding Chelsea again this summer for Jay Dasilva, the young left back who has been loaned out a lot during his time with Chelsea, He is currently on loan at Bristol City and we have had scouts watch Lloyd Kelly. He seems a decent player from what I have seen.

Believable5 0Unbelievable

24 Mar 2019 11:08:56
I'd take Lloyd Kelly. Covers LB and LCB.
Lets go for Dael Fry as well. Covers RCB and RB.
Allows us to let one of Lovren/ Matip go and upgrades on our current backup fullback options without having to break the bank.
Maybe will give us adequate funds to go out and get someone like Bruno Fernandes (our preferred option for the CAM role) who will no doubt cost a lot of money.

Agree1 2Disagree

24 Mar 2019 14:25:02
We already have a young player that covers RB and CB in Hoever. I thought he did well personally when he came on against Wolves in the cup. Gomez isn’t exactly a veteran himself and he also covers RB and CB.

Hi Ed002,

Hope you are well.

Thank you for all the knowledge you have in the footballing world. I appreciate it.

Our team needs full backs and an attacker. Whom are we considering?

Believable8 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. I appreciate that it has been reported about all of these nailed on and reported players being of interest to the club - the likes of Werner, Dybala etc., but the reality is unless one of the key players were to leave that won't be happening.

Liverpool need a GK, CB, LB/RB cover and LM - could look to a Creative AM player (along the lines of Fekir) and drop Shaqiri and Keita down the pecking order - finding space for TAA in midfield looks tough to me, although Ed001 suggests that may well be on the cards. In terms of players looked at:

Kenny Lala (RB/RM) only just signed a new contract but has been looked at
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociadad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave
Ruben Dias (CB) Liverpool have watched the Benfica CB on several occasions and watched him in a national game against Croatia in September
Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
Francisco Ferreira (CB) was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced the way he is 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.

In terms of attacking players:
Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets.}
Klopp likes Lorenzo Insigne (LW) - would be a Salah or Mane replacement but a very, very expensive €150M asking price.}

22 Mar 2019 17:59:55
Ed2 - amazing as always! Thank you.
Fully expect to be decimated for this but will ask anyway - any chance of even the tiniest hint of the area in football you are involved with?
Based in your answers, won't suprise me to learn that you ARE football 😀.

Very nice! have you tried Monkey 47 Ed? if not I highly recommend.

I must admit Ed2 I'm not a big drinker, I'm a light weight and I'm not into gin too much but that monkey 47 stuff goes down a treat.

{Ed002's Note - I will look out for it.}

23 Mar 2019 17:22:52
Good choice Ed. I've done a few gin tours around London, well worth it and very interesting learning the history. Beefeater 24 (the red bottle) took me by surprise, really good drop. And Gin Mare is excellent, infused with Mediterranean herbs etc.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would agree about the 24 - Hilton use it in their lounges as the house gin.}

24 Mar 2019 09:08:58
Ed002, my missus recommends The Old Oxford Artisan Distillery Gin. It’s a small company based in Oxford, we both went to Uni there and still have connections in the city but discovered it by accident, they produce some lovely gin.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I'll check it out.}

24 Mar 2019 11:58:03
Ed002, I'm off to Tel Aviv in about a month. Care to share this world beating cocktail bar you're off to so I too can enjoy their tequilas? I'm a big fan of the Fortaleza Blanco Tequila which I first had when I was in Cali last year. I could drink that all day.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Imperial Craft - you need to make reservations.}

24 Mar 2019 13:09:41
If we're on gin recommendations then Brockmans should be on your radar. Available everywhere these days and is the gin I regularly use to convert non gin drinkers!

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2019 19:52:29
Yeah, Ed, Sipsmith is good stuff. I'm not a gin aficionado so to see you like that as well is a relief.

Ed002, are Liverpool interested in signing Callum Hudson-Odoi?

Believable0 5Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

21 Mar 2019 17:59:12
Callum Hudson-Odoi - Mostly will end with Bayern
Dybala - Interested in moving elsewhere. Liverpool haven't shown any interest.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 18:29:26
I believe ed001 said we have an interest but doubt anything will come from it. Couldn’t see where he’d get game time unless there is a front player leaving.

Great potential though I’m looking forward to seeing how he develops as a player where ever he ends up.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Did Ed001 mention if Klopp had tapped him up or not?}

21 Mar 2019 18:42:04
Yikes thought that was behind him now.

Agree1 3Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool have not approached Chelsea.}

21 Mar 2019 19:29:08
Argh hell I hope we haven’t done this again Ed.

21 Mar 2019 21:04:46
I’m wondering if tapping up is the logical inverse of patting down?

Agree8 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 21:07:40
Goodness me, the Ed is clearly pulling your leg and you take it seriously. There is nothing to suggest Klopp has tapped up Hudson-Odoi.

Firminosteeth it’s been a while mate since your last post. Got to hand it to you, you always keep coming back even though they never turn out to be true lol. I guess that’s why this is a rumours site.

Oh i do love a nice trip down transfer rumour memory lane.
Try another one, ft. Zielinski makes absolutely zero sense considering we've loads of midfielders, his price would be illy, and it's Napoli.

Good to see you back on Firminos Teeth, enjoy an old school transfer rumour. Remember Arda Turan, we were linked for years.

Agree7 3Disagree

20 Mar 2019 21:52:25
My god. £20 million for Carlton Cole. Those were dark dark days!

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 23:18:31
Ohhhhhhhh Arda Turan! Arda, Arda, Arda, etc. etc.
That rumour should've had it's own terrace song. Just sayin. :)

So let's say Milner and Lallana leave. Eds is Grujic likely to leave also? Even so, then let's say Kane and Jones go on loan for the season. And we sign a creative goal-scoring midfielder (which Zielinski is not) . That still leaves us with Fab, Trent, Hendo, Gini, Naby, Ox.
I would argue that it makes more sense to play Grujic than buy Zielinski. But that's just me and my very average teeth!

Agree3 1Disagree

21 Mar 2019 02:23:08
I have no idea what's true or not but I was watching an interview with Souness the other day. He said that last season Klopp signed 2 midfielders (Shaqiri, Fabinho) and tried to sign another (Fekir) . All of which suggests he identifies the midfield as an area that needed/ needs strengthening. It is also true that many people are suggesting that the midfield will have a clearout (Lallana, Milner) I also remember before last season Gini being touted as surplus.

All of the above doesn't guarantee anything, but it does suggest that Klopp looking at another midfielder isn't as far fetched as some would believe.

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - how many times will I have to say this before people listen? Klopp signed Shaqiri instead of Fekir. When he couldn't get Fekir, he went and got Shaqiri instead. He wanted 2 midfielders. He signed 2 midfielders. Last summer suggests he got exactly what he wanted.}

21 Mar 2019 08:14:44
Haha, 'touted as surplus'? What does that even mean? Yeah I remember the Gini 'rumours' as well. Apparently Cocu wanted him at Fenerbahce, right? Yeah well I'm not surprised, but I want $1,000,000 in my bank account but wanting ain't getting. Gini was never available for transfer, is our most important midfielder atm and is happy playing for one of the top teams in world football. Ain't going nowhere.

Agree3 2Disagree

21 Mar 2019 10:18:07
If that transfer window showed us anything it's that if you want to solve a problem with an area you have to have to spend big for the big players. Spent big on a keeper, problem solved. Spent big on a centre half, problem solved. Spent big on Fabinho and problem solved. Reverted back to second choice bargain to try and solve midfield and it didn't work, only worked for a while for Shaqiri.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 12:19:30
Ed 1, Did start with a caveat, stating i had no idea! lol

We did sign 2 midfielders in an area we had cover for. If Shaq is not working out its not beyond belief that he may look for something better.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 17:37:11
In response to stoneage:
Kovacic is amazing, he would complete our midfield!

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 15:07:20
It was when he responded with the wrong account to himself that the cat was very much out of the bag. But always nice to see a regular haha

I quite like Zielinski, but Ed002 is always saying how difficult Napoli are to deal with. that's assuming the player even still wanted the move.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 05:44:15
Hi ed001

I hope you are well. I asked in early October whether the club see Lewis as Moreno' s replacement or if we would sign a replacement but it was too early to tell and I said I would again in March (It was under my old user name Oubaas can Zyl)

So I therefore ask if we see Lewis as this option or are we looking to sign a left back? If so who do the club have in mind?

Thank you for your knowledge and insight.

Believable1 1Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - it is looking like it will be a signing as things stand mate. Someone like Aaron Martin seems to be the favourite. A player whose contract is running down. I can't remember who else was suggested but it is not seen as a massive priority, so it will be someone who is near the end of a contract or out of contract, most likely. Unless Moreno decides to stay, there is still a contract offer for him on the table.}

20 Mar 2019 09:16:52
Aaron Martin from League 2 side Exeter Ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Espanyol, but Mainz has an option to buy him in the summer.}

20 Mar 2019 09:17:25
Google Aaron Martin and it was returning the chap from Exeter City and I was sat there wondering what was happening for a moment. Then I see there's a young chap from Mainz!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Espanyol, but Mainz has an option to buy.}

20 Mar 2019 09:40:26
Was hoping we wouldn’t be looking at Div2 players Ed lol. Anyone else in the frame then for LB, not heard his name mentioned on here before tbh.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2019 15:35:45
hahaha. Yes the Spain U21 international Aaron Martin, not the 29 year old Exeter City centre-back Aaron Martin, with all due respect to him. :)

Other notable young left-backs with contracts expiring in 2020 include Hertha's Maximilian Mittelstädt who's having a good season and Rennes' Ramy Bensebaini, who I saw against Arsenal and looked decent if unspectacular.

Morning Ed's,

Waking up to rumours that we're going to make an approach to sign Dybala. Any truth to this? Would be a quality signing if true however I imagine this is just paper talk.

Cheers.

Good Afternoon Eds,

There are reports linking Liverpool with Pascal Gross and I was wondering if there was any truth to them?

I live in Brighton and in my opinion he is one of a few stand out players in what is a pretty average Brighton side.

His Goal and assist ratio has been pretty decent throughout his career and I am sure his numbers would be higher if Brighton were not such a defensive team. Although I am not convinced he is at Liverpools level just now.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - This was from a few months ago and I am pretty sure Liverpool has not made any approach to Brighton for Gross. I suspect it is the same story being repeated.}

19 Mar 2019 15:47:49
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 20:09:43
That required me to re-read the OP

Initially, one awful moment, it read:

“There are reports linking Liverpool with CHRISTIAN Gross”

And breathe.
