Ed1, the English press is saying we're giving up on Lemar and focussing solely on AOC now. Is that correct in your opinion?

Or are the deals irrespective of each other?

Thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - it is bull. They are not related, the Lemar issue hinges on agreeing a fee with Monaco, nothing to do with Ox.}

Are the teams far apart on the fee or do you expect it to be sorted?

{Ed001's Note - no idea on the fee, but Klopp wants him and we have seen with Keita the club will pull out all the stops to do a deal when Klopp wants someone.}

Thanks ed. Do you, in your opinion, think we'll pay what is required? It's a no brainier to me if it means we can sell Coutinho.

{Ed001's Note - I believe the club will back Klopp in whatever he decides, so it depends on how highly he values Lemar. I would say they will but this is LFC and that means it will no doubt be a letdown on deadline day!}

It ia being reportes that Lemar deal has nothing to do with money but lack of time to get it done before France play tomorrow. Is this valid? From all i ve been reading today we will get only Ox. don't see Lemar or VVD coming based on todays action.

{Ed001's Note - there is plenty of time to get it done.}

ED is right. We need both, for Depth. Apart from Can, Gini and hendo, who else with experience we have in Midfield? Grujic is not yet the finish article. so Lemar, OX, would be great addition. Remember. We have PL, Champions, FA CUP, the other Cup. so we have 4 tournaments.
This squad is one of the best in the last 10 - 15 years. and maybe, the Best squad in the Premier League, yes, far better than Mancs.

Is there a backup plan for Lemar Ed001? They seem to be asking for too much and I think we will walk away. Mahrez maybe? Just cannot see a way back for Coutinho now and letting him go with only OX coming in makes our squad significantly weaker.

{Ed001's Note - no, Lemar is a back up plan for Couts remember.}

Cheers ed. I asked same thing mate. Youve answered now. I think we are all fearing the same thing in ending up with Ox an not Lemar.

Ed001 I have been wanting your words on this topic the whole day. So do you believe we are stil negotiating for Lemar or is a deal completely off? Did officials even go to france?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe it is dead, I have no idea about where our officials are though.}

What's the situation with center half? Tuesday came an went!

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what Tuesday has to do with anything.}

Hi Eds, is there a medical for Ox scheduled today?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate.}

Thanks Ed001. Your a real gem.

{Ed001's Note - if Pearce is stating LFC officials are in Monaco to do a deal, then he will have been briefed by the club to say that. I can't see why they would want him saying that if they are not there.}

Ed are Barcelona also after Lemar now mate?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona has spoken to Monaco in the past about Lemar.}

But nothing recent like this week? Cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that Monaco are not keen to sell the player.}

Aside from everything else.
Why are teams just being tit heads with us.

Baka 40 mil
Mandy 40 mil
Silva (the better player) 60 mil

Fair enough with mbappe but he is a future ballon winner.

Yet We bid 66 mil and can't get it done. Oh and they have already have his replacement in keita.

Shame as would of loved him but if we're keeping cou then sall good.

End of the day the keita deal means every single mess up has now been forgiven. We handled that like champs, ruthless. Got ou5 man. Back our manager.

I have every confidence the time when we turned away transfers over a 2 mil difference are long gone.

I think where in the final stages of the Lemar deal which will give cou enough time to sort his Barcelona move out.

It will be done.
