Where are all our new players. I want them now 😂.

G'day, Eds.

Need that list of left-backs. Can't bring myself to truly believe in our chances of getting Mendy and can't think of anyone else i really really want. Would I be right that Tymon is 2nd choice if Sessegnon bid fails?

Thanks a mil.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, Tymon is a back up option, Sessegnon is very much the one the club would most love to add.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2017 09:22:40

Thanks mate, I thought as much. That makes sense. Like a lot of stuff at LFC these days. Which is really taking a bit of getting used to.

24 May 2017 09:49:27

Are we looking at loaning him back for a season ed?

{Ed001's Note - that is the most likely, yes.}

24 May 2017 09:53:51

if were loaning him back ed, does that not mean were not getting any lb?

{Ed001's Note - how do you figure that out? We are trying to sign two mate. One young one to develop and an older one ready to go now.}

24 May 2017 10:02:25

Am I right in thinking that the club's first choice would be to get Sessegnon and Pereira and loan Sessegnon back for a season or two in the knowledge that Perreira can play LB, he can also cover RB in the future and that we know that Milner can do a job at LB if needed?



Or are they looking for an out and out LB as well as Sessegnon?



Cheers Eds.

{Ed001's Note - the preference would be to get Pereira, Sessegnon and an out and out LB.}

24 May 2017 10:09:29

This was all discussed yesterday lads. PRTP.

24 May 2017 10:15:49

Wow all three, that would be amazing if possible.



I've not seen a huge amount of Pereira but what i've heard has all been good and the ability to play RB and LB is a huge advantage imo.



Perfect summer for me would be



Sessegnon (loaned back)

Pereira

Mendy

Keita

Brandt

Luan



CB only if we sell one of the 4 we have.



If that happens i might do a little wee of excitement.

24 May 2017 10:41:38

That'd be a dream alright. We'd then have lots of different options for the 1st team and different formations and a very decent squad depth, too.

24 May 2017 10:48:25

right apologies, don't know how pereira slipped out of my head.



thought were looking to get him in straight away.

24 May 2017 10:58:25

Couldn't agree more with that list RedDawn.

24 May 2017 10:58:43

Preferably, Nelson Semedo to Pereira, but as long as I don't have to endure another season of Clyne, then I'll be happy.



At times I feel Clyne is stealing a living as a footballer.

{Ed002's Note - Seemedo certainly will not be joining Liverpool.}

24 May 2017 18:10:39

I'm surprised no one is mentioning Mendy's discipline problems. Don't get me wrong, I think he's fantastic. But given Klopp's zero tolerance stance on the Sakho incident, I'd be amazed if he'd be willing to bring Mendy in.

24 May 2017 18:04:50

I hope we sign someone nobody is talking about, under the radar abit, abit like firmino was and I pray it's a CB.

{Ed025's Note - well certainly no one is talking about firmino now decimus, he had a really anonymous season mate..

24 May 2017 19:04:12

Firmino had an anonymous season Hahahahahahahahaha.

25 May 2017 11:41:16

You don't rate firmino! I love watching him, brilliant player.

25 May 2017 12:26:35
I don't understand the obsession with Mendy. He is no better than Moreno. Let him go to City. They need 4 fullbacks and he will ensure they won't win the league.

25 May 2017 12:26:35

25 May 2017 14:17:46
Firmino was anonymous this season?
Jesus Ed025, are all toffees this uneducated about football? Or has your brain gotten washed by Moshiri's fabricated b******t about taking Everton back to its past (yet inferior to lfc's) glories?
Firmino has more talent in his pinky finger than any attacking player your lot has got (Lukaku aside but he is as good as gone) .

{Ed025's Note - i like him buzzer, hes a very good player but not really prolific in front of goal this season and when couts was out he looked a bit lost to be honest, he has the ability but maybe needs to apply himself a bit better mate..

25 May 2017 12:13:01
Hi all, with regards to Klopps recent comments about possibly not getting the players in before pretty season. Is this likely a result of players not wanting to commit until we have fully qualified for the Champions League. would hopen not and would like to see a few brought in as soon as possible.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about but syspect that you have misunderstood something. Players will not be waiting until the last week of August unless they have to.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2017 11:33:12

Hi Eds



Ed 002, said that a CB isn't a priority this summer.

Do you think a lot depends on whether Lucas stays?!

Cheers to the great work you're doing here.

{Ed002's Note - It depends if one of the others leave - perhaps Gomez.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2017 13:01:26

Why condtantly say Gomez ed002. Surely if we were to sell someone Klaven is the worst of the lot and keep a young Gomez to put pressure on as Klaven doesn't provide pressure on matip nd lovren. We tried Klav for the year and it hasn't worked out as he isn't making matip and lovren work harder for their positions hence why they go missing in games. We need a top CB to push them or replace one if better especially with champs league and with both of them struggling to keep fit for extended periods. that's my 2 cents anyway.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Gomez as I have explained - and Klavan is Klopp's pick.}

24 May 2017 13:35:59

Bournmouth ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I have explained on a number of occasions but some people are not bright enough to grasp it.}

24 May 2017 14:14:02

Maybe Gomez on loan to Bournemouth would suit all parties. Then a decision can be made on him after he has had a season of football under his belt as to whether he has/ will be able to recover his form pre-injury.



Klavan is a back up, and as a back up he is fine.

24 May 2017 15:00:51

Do you think Klopp would swallow his pride and say Klaven was a miatake and try to replace him or is Klaven a LFC player for awhile to come? I am sure Klopp is very hapoy to progress Gomez as he said b4 so I hope we don't sell an excellent prospect to keep a 30 something year old who has proven he can't cut it in the Premier league.

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no indication that he will.}

24 May 2017 15:35:10

Puzzled, I actually gave you an agree and a disagree.



On the one hand, it makes sense to get some games under Gomez's belt.



However, it makes little sense to loan him out and be left with only 3 senior CBs, especially as Matip and Lovren have had time out injured this season.



Also doesn't make sense to loan/ buy in another CB to replace Gomez going out on loan.



On balance, and given the number of games we are hopefully going to have next season, I'd much rather keep Joe and only look a bring in another CB if one of them is sold.



The priority should be FBs at the back as good FBs will not only help our attacking, but our defending too.



Ideal scenario would be to sell Lovren, and upgrade. But failing that, I'd rather keep all 4 we currently have and give Joe the opportunity to impress and, hopefully, end the season with a shout of being first pick in 2018-19.

24 May 2017 18:22:26

Gomez out on loan? Ed001, you know my feelings on the defence and CB's.



Surely not!

{Ed001's Note - Klopp has said he wants to keep Gomez and give him a chance to show what he can do next season. I would be very surprised if he went out on loan.}

24 May 2017 22:56:09

Joe takes the advice of someone very close to him and let's just say someone at Bournemouth would potentially be a very bad influence on him.

25 May 2017 22:25:12
Jordan Ibe 🤔.

24 May 2017 18:04:18

Weird how Chelsea have got away with match fixing. That bloke who ate the pie got banned didn't he? Fixing an event in the match when it's been admitted so freely must be quite the punishment.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2017 18:55:23

The problem is it's an issue with morals and integrity which the game struggles with at the best of times, add to that we're talking about John Terry who has neither and it's no surprise.

24 May 2017 19:22:35

Joey Barton got away with it for years.

24 May 2017 21:43:36

Totally, totally agree. It's a principle and a precedent that has now been set. No matter the reason for it, that simply cannot be allowed to happen. It's one thing a Chelsea player knocking the ball out, it's even worse when the other team does it. He could at least have pretended to be injured and hence they kicked it out to allow treatment. The fa have been made to look like mugs.

24 May 2017 21:57:20

I think you're confusing match-fixing with betting-fixing. Terry's send off in no way affected the result of the match.



The fat pie guy situation was different in the sense that he heard of the bet and then decided to follow through in order to help his friends earn a few quid. Whereas Terry's send off was planned before the odds were set by the bookies. The fact that betting companies decided to set odds for the event is down to them and in no way did Terry or Chelsea decide to do it because of the bet.

The PL are investigating to see whether any irregular bets were placed to see whether his send off was leaked. Until rheyve come to a conclusion, your comment is rank speculation and indicative of your rather limited biased view.

24 May 2017 23:15:30

Spot on fuser. That said it was ill concieved and disrespectful to e competition.

24 May 2017 23:21:02

How do you know? How do you know that if the keeper had tried to find one of his team mates it definitely wouldn't have led to a goal? You don't and neither do I, that's the point, when you start predetirminating something like this the match is altered.

25 May 2017 01:08:07

Part of the problem is they make odds for such ridiculous things it's almost impossible to police. If they made odds for what time you opened your front door in the morning and your mates where betting, how big is the temptation and how do you prove whether it's luck or not.



IMO betting is a scourge but if it happens they should only be allowed to offer bets on things like a result, scorers etc. and not ridiculous things like whether someone eats a pie or not.

25 May 2017 02:39:40

To be fair betfred took bets that he would be substitued on 26mins at 100/ 1.

{Ed001's Note - it is called spot fixing and it is against the laws of the game and the land.}

25 May 2017 04:50:43

As much as I dislike terry, surely moyes should be the one in the dock for agreeing to it? Wasn't it his agreement that allowed it to happen? He only had to refuse citing potential issues.

{Ed001's Note - so the organiser should be excused because someone else also agreed to spot fix? Not sure I understand your reasoning. Everyone complicit should be charged and punished to stop the spread of this kind of cheating.}

25 May 2017 05:45:13

No, Absolutely everyone complicit should be charged but if moyes says no then presumably it doesn't happen. but then again you're talking about the ego that is John terry here



My point was that moyes had the opportunity but took the easy option to agree. As such he should be called, but all I see is Chelsea / Terry.

{Ed001's Note - well first off, Terry is the ringleader and admitted he organised it, so he is bound to take the brunt of it. Has Moyes admitted anything? I know the Sunderland players agreed to be part of it, but I have not seen or read anything saying that was at Moyes' bequest, all have said it was Terry who asked them.



By the way, is there anything more sad and pathetic than organising your own tribute? That really is low.}

25 May 2017 07:29:11

Exactly ED002



The fact he had to organise it because the club had not bothered to do anything after 22 years of service speaks volumes in itself. Its all rather embarrassing. Terry is that far up his own backside, he must of thought its what the world wanted to see.



I'm surprised he wasn't at the Friends Stadium last night in a United kit waiting to run on and lift the cup his morals are that low.

{Ed001's Note - erm Ed001 mate! Other than that I totally agree with you.}

25 May 2017 07:32:58

Ooops Sorry ED - Im still waking up.

{Ed001's Note - it's ok, I can understand it was a shock to read something you agreed with from me.}

25 May 2017 07:37:09

He should also be done for time wasting. He took ages getting off the pitch.

25 May 2017 08:02:44
Ed001 am i missing something. yes its very sad terry orginised it and im sure there are other ways of having a send off. But if the bookies had any idea it would happen in any way is it not there fault for being niave and taking any sort of bets on it. Its noy really luck or a prediction if you know its happening!

{Ed001's Note - I really do not see the relevance? I really do not care about the bookies getting hit or anything like that, the issue is that moments in a competitive league match should never be set up and agreed upon between opponents beforehand. That is why we have testimonials and friendlies, for stunts like that. They have no place in a competitive match.}

24 May 2017 22:48:54
Davidson Sanchez looks a beast thought he played really well tonight is there any interest in him from anywhere? I know it's not Liverpool related but looks like he has lots of potential thanks.

Agree0 Disagree3

24 May 2017 22:59:41
Barcelona are very keen and you can see why.

25 May 2017 00:07:27
A mixed performance from him, I thought. He looked terrified when Rashford closed him down and some of his passing was very poor. He did look good in one on ones though - seems like he tackles cleanly. And he showed good pace in chasing down Lingard towards the end, but it also looked like Lingard did his best to mess that chance up himself.

25 May 2017 00:49:17
De Ligt, the other CB, looked better than Sanchez.

25 May 2017 01:50:21
Totally agree. I thought he looked decent. Hard to believe he's just 17. One to watch.

25 May 2017 07:26:42
He may be a beast but he seemed to have an issue passing to his own team mates and was very rash, not going to judge him on one performance but i was not that impressed.

{Ed001's Note - he looked like the occasion was too much for him and was far from a beast. He had an absolute mare.}

24 May 2017 22:33:00
Betting been suspended on iker casillas joining us in the summer. Anyone heard anything?

Agree0 Disagree1

24 May 2017 23:31:31
'01 said it wasn't happening. Bookmakers suspend betting on many things that never happen, unfortunately it's impossible to ignore betting companies now that one adorns our kit like a moral gonococcal lesion.

24 May 2017 22:15:48
Bliney, I thought Ajax would be least put in some kind of effort. that' is the most piss poor performance I have seen since, I don't know when.?! The players standing around on the pitch at the end like they had been robbed? seemed to be a set of high school kids who don't know how to pass to each other - very disappointing.

Agree7 Disagree1

24 May 2017 20:12:48
Hi Eds and fellow Reds,

I've been out of the rumour mill for a while now and just catching up the last couple days, so I apologize if this has been addressed previously.

I assumed leading up to this summer that the most glaring issue (other than LB) that would be addressed this summer would be CB.

If possible Eds, could you give some insight as to why Klopp and Co. don't think any CB replacements / cover is necessary?

In my opinion it seems obvious that our CB pairing (Lovren) just wasn't up to snuff this year for the prem, let alone Champions league. am I going insane?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2017 01:55:48
We can't buy everything we need in one summer. Looks like FBs are priorty this window. Plus Gomez will be given a chance to stake a claim this season coming, then probably reasses next summer.

24 May 2017 14:02:04
Does anyone know if any of the players we've been linked to are particularly good at set pieces?

When Coutinho gets his obligatory injury and then suffers his usual 6-7 game struggle to regain form afterwards (that's not a dig at Coutinho, it happens every season) we really lack anyone who can take a decent corner and free-kick, Henderson and Milner are just not good enough at set pieces for us to use them effectively.

Dead ball specialists are critical as it makes defenders panic about making challenges on ball carriers and with Mane back, Coutinho playing deeper (hopefully continues next there season), Brandt (or whoever we get for LWF), Lallana, Bobby et al we have a lot of potential for getting dead ball situations as I feel we will be one of the highest ball carrying/ dribbles into the box teams next season.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 May 2017 18:38:09
i think luan and parades take corners and indirect free kicks for their respective teams. i believe Parades to be quite the specialist.
