Hi one for Macca if he is around? A few weeks back you reported that Cillessen was at Melwood but I am guessing things have changed since then with all the strong Alisson rumours. Just wondering if you have any news on what happened with that or if there is a chance he could still be coming to us - perhaps as a number 2 if we are having a big keeper clear out?! Appreciate that the transfer world is forever changing but always value your views as ever.

It wasn’t Cillessen.

Ed002 in his podcast said it was the young lad we signed from Chelsea this year.

He must have had sunglasses on and a cap I guess.

If you are getting those mixed up people need their eyes testing!

Or apply for a job as a ref.

What was the name of the lad Macca got confused with a Cillissen?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know - you would need Macca to answer that.}

Sometimes I just don't know. how hard can it be.

Ed002, weren't you the one who said the name of the Chelsea player he got it confused with? I can't remember off the top of my head who his name was, but I'm pretty sure he had 3 names and is 19/ 20 years old?

{Ed002's Note - Isaac Christie-Davies was the one others were saying was Cillessen - I don’t know if Macca was confused by a picture of him on Twitter.}

Cheers Ed002 for the clarification, can I just quickly ask what is your opinion of Alisson as a player? Have you seen him play enough to know if he's as good as he's made out to be? Hope you're having a good week, and keep up the good work!

{Ed002's Note - He has had one very good season in Rome (the first season he didn't really play) and has done OK for Brazil - although some performances have been patchy. Other sides think he is good hence the interest, but there is a thought that he is well and truly overpriced.}

All players seem overpriced nowadays.

The thing about overpriced players ED002, I wouldn't look to much into this.
I recall many years ago you stating Firmino was overpriced and not many clubs wanted to go near him for that valuation.

I think we paid $30mill pounds or something like that. 3-4 years later he would be double that if not more.

Its like an investment in property. if its a good purchase (player plays well) over time they should be worth more than your initial investment.

Sometimes you need to get that dream home and outbid bidders and over pay. Property rises, just like players do.
So outbidding 10-15mill pound give it 3-4 years . you've probably more likely doubled your return if the player has performed.

Kindest regards

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool spent significantly more than $30M for him.}

He was closer to 60 mil if I remember correctly.
