Evening Ed001.

First of all, what a result today!

Away from the match, just want to pick up on the discussion regarding Clyne. You were spot on regarding him not being injured. Mate of mine who I sit next to at the match, knows a bloke who works with the phsyio team. He was saying that Clyne was caught smoking marijuana and partying whilst away in Ghana and the club actually spoke to the FA regarding this and the only reason he played against United was because of the lack of cover at RB.

He was also saying how worried the club was regarding Brewster's injury, especially when the leg was infected, hampering his comeback.

Brewster is very very highly rated at the club and have said that before his injury, was ahead of Owen ( at the same age ) in terms of terms of ability.

Good to see him back and scoring with the 23's along with the Ox and Gomez. I think the club will resist bringing them back early and wait until next season.

Agree22 Disagree3

14 Apr 2019 21:29:46
If Brewster is ahead of Owen ability wise at that age i'll be a very very happy man because in todays market that's a £150 million player.

Agree18 Disagree1

14 Apr 2019 21:34:15
Ahh he was stoned the whole time, explains his performances over the last few years.

Agree22 Disagree1

14 Apr 2019 22:27:05
Second hand tittle tattle Drogie, which may or may not be right.
You shouldn’t have posted that imo.

Agree11 Disagree31

14 Apr 2019 23:23:00
Second hand title tattle? And what make you so sure mate?

Agree18 Disagree4

14 Apr 2019 23:51:58
It's a rumour site. so why not post a rumour?

Agree20 Disagree3

15 Apr 2019 00:56:26
I know it's a rumour page but I'm a relative of Clyne please don't slander his name by bringing drugs into it he injured his back playing how shall I say extra curricular activities lol 1000% fact but don't drag he's name through dirt he loves the club and the badge he played for just know that

Cheers
Guys.

Agree12 Disagree17

15 Apr 2019 00:58:36
Surely everything is second hand here, everyone’s heard it from someone.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 01:48:40
Drogie - are you tslking about the period of his (Clyne) so called back injury?

If so I heard the same thing at the time. In fact I remember a rumor of that kind was flying around on social media, but never paid much attention to it.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Apr 2019 06:42:40
You probably shouldn’t post something that could destroy a man’s career unless you have actual proof.

Agree2 Disagree9

{Ed001's Note - it wouldn't destroy his career. It is not seen as career-defining, let alone destroying. Numerous players each season get caught with marijuana in their systems. It was not marijuana that caused Clyne to be dropped, it was his lifestyle. The guy may claim to care about Liverpool or football in general, but the only thing he gives a toss about is living the high life.}

15 Apr 2019 07:40:20
Those of you that read my posts will know that I never post a rumour, in fact it’s probbly my first!

I was given the info by a good friend of mine that I sit next to at the match, I’m not one for spreading cr*p.

Sorry if I’ve offended anyone, but the club are finished with Clyne.

Agree16 Disagree2

15 Apr 2019 19:22:28
Ed01 already addressed the Clyne issue months when many moaned as to why he was not being picked. Ed01 said at the time that he was "not living the lifestyle of a professional footballer" and if anything the OP posted is true then that was what Ed01 may have been referring to.

IMO and regardless of his alleged lifestyle, he is light years behind Trent, Milner and even Hendo at RB and for me, Klopp did the right thing by getting shot of him cos he was no good enuff. Now if you add his "lifestyle" to the equation then it was a no-brainer.

Agree6 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I have already posted in this thread that it was not about a drugs test. It was his party lifestyle. He acts like one of those spoilt rich kids who have too much money and never had to earn it as they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Klopp wants professionals who train hard and not turn up to training after snatching 20 minutes kip following a night out partying.}

16 Apr 2019 12:42:38
With you all the way on that one, Ed. Regardless of his issues (of which there are many, clearly) he is a dreadful player and I'm thankful he is no longer here and we will get rid come this summer.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - the sad thing is that he was a dreadful player because of his own attitude. He had the ability to be more than good enough.}

17 Apr 2019 23:25:06
Clyne will always be an important footnote in Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnolds careers.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 10:31:36
Hi Ed, do you no if we Klopp still has an interest in Brandt please, or have we moved on? I guess it will probably be a "possible if Mane were to leave"? .

Agree12 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - My understanding is that Liverpool will be interested if Brandt is made available.}

14 Apr 2019 11:53:35
Thank you for your reply Ed. I’ve read he will definitely leave at end of season, but not sure how accurate that is.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - It is not accurate at all.}

14 Apr 2019 13:30:32
Cant see him sticking at Leverkusen without European football.

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 16:14:48
He would want some guarantees regarding playing time. Cannot imagine him willing to sit on the bench and starting only domestic cups games.

Agree1 Disagree2

14 Apr 2019 20:17:46
Hmm interesting. Not seen us really linked with anyone that I know that well. Brandt and Laxalt seem recurring names. I think as I've said before we need a right back option, a striker to give a different option and maybe left back cover.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - Brandt can play anywhere across the front.

14 Apr 2019 20:31:30
I’d see him as a good buy think he’d get quite a bit of game time since he’s so versatile in his positions. I’ve liked what I’ve seen of him this season in his attacking / box to box type of role.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 21:35:47
People say they can't see him joining us without guaranteed playing time. let's face it he won't get that guarantee but at Leverkusen next year without European ball he's going to get 35-40 games at most, whereas with us with a squad good enough to go deep into the domestic cups he's going to get at least similar numbers, more if he proves himself and forces his way into the starting lineup.

Agree3 Disagree1

15 Apr 2019 08:47:40
Little Naby, I think the player himself wanted assured playing time when we looked at him last time. I can’t see that will have changed but if Ed002 has said we are interested if he is available then I guess it’s doen to the club to persuade him mate.

Agree4 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 14:14:21
I don't understand the worrying about Brandt having "concern for playing time", unless he's publicly stated that concern. One (very small) criticism I have of Klopp is that he overplays guys because he doesn't like to compromise on players who haven't quite mastered his system (see Fabinho's and Oxlade-Chamberlain's slow integration, Shaqiri's disappearance when we moved to the 4-3-3). I would love to see him expand the rotation by a couple players. Brandt can play in the midfield or in the front 3. He'd be a perfect addition as there will be plenty of opportunity to play for a guy with this type of versatility.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Brandt has previously expressed that concern.}

15 Apr 2019 22:10:22
If that’s the case then he’s destined to play for a mid table team for his entire career. If you want to play at the top table you will never be guaranteed playing time.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Maybe Klopp should stop making such promises then.}

16 Apr 2019 10:21:53
Surely by now professional players understand that with the amount of games that have to be played each season demanding game time from a potential new club is ludicrous. Different systems to counteract different opponents etc automatically dictates players have to be rotated.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 14:20:21
Surely City ( I say begrudgingly) have shown a model whereby young stars and the ego’s that sometimes come with have been managed effectively; Sane being a good example of a player who would demand playing time but comes on and off the bench. I would feel disappointed that Brant would put playing time first, when our clubs aspirations look promising. In my opinion, no matter how big a player, they shouldn’t demand playing time ahead of any future signing. The player themselves should believe in their confidence and prove their metal on the pitch to earn playing time at a club.
My opinion, subject to criticism of course.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Sane is looking at his options to move on.}

16 Apr 2019 16:17:36
Thanks Ed, that comes as a surprise. Is there a favoured destination?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware, but he is 23 and wants to be playing regularly as he thinks he is good enough. But there was some interest in Leroy Sane in January so Manchester City will look to resolve the situation.}

16 Apr 2019 19:33:12
Thanks Ed, appreciate the response. Best of luck to the lad.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 08:00:20
Ed, A Aston Villa lad at work reckons LFC have a strong interest in Grealish. any legs in it? Your insight is greatly appreciated.

Agree2 Disagree35

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

12 Apr 2019 16:50:34
Hope not, totally overrated only a mid table type player wouldn't touch him with a 40ft barge pole.

Agree28 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 21:46:28
The only person that thinks highly of Grealish, is Grealish.

Agree18 Disagree4

13 Apr 2019 11:47:23
Not anywhere near the quality we need at the club at this time. Not even close.

Agree8 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 13:03:59
50 million or give Wilson a chance what you think.

Agree4 Disagree2

13 Apr 2019 19:06:28
His development as a player I feel will completely hinge on how he matures as a person. If he applies himself professionally he'll become a very good player I predict but the jury is still out on him in that regard.

Agree3 Disagree2

10 Apr 2019 17:17:31
Hi Eds,

I understand we've had scouts at a few Swansea City games in recent weeks watching Daniel James and also Connor Roberts.

Do you know anything about this?

Thanks.

Agree2 Disagree9

{Ed002's Note - No.}

10 Apr 2019 17:41:17
Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

11 Apr 2019 00:32:01
I’ve heard we’re looking at Lloyd Kelly?

Agree4 Disagree1

11 Apr 2019 13:44:43
We should be looking at James before bournemouth or southampton sign him then we all want him next year for 40million more than he would cost now.

Agree9 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 07:42:58
Dan James looks real quality. His pace is incredible but he is starting to get more consistent with his service and finishing.

Really think he's a star of the future. Would love us to sign him.

Agree4 Disagree2

13 Apr 2019 19:05:16
For the sake of his own career it would be a bad move right now, a PL team where he'll get weekly games should be his next step. Exciting prospect but needs to earn and prove his worth before considering competing with world class attackers for places in top teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 06:14:35
I agree Har

it would be buy and loan out for a season.

not the finished article but as a contract has not been signed yet he will be available on the cheap this summer.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 16:27:05
David Neres of Ajax is the latest linked with us. Having a fairly good season the 22 year old.

Any insight into this one eds? Apparently we've been watching him at the very least.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Everton, not Liverpool. I am not aware of any interest being shown by Liverpool at all and he would not be an improvement over Harry Wilson, and as far as I know the club are expecting much of him. Joining Liverpool would be a risky and a big step up.}

10 Apr 2019 17:14:36
Nearly forgot about our Harry Wilson then. Would completely destroy his chances with us if we bought Neres. The mooted price was 40 million which, by the sounds of your description on him, is far too much.

Perhaps the links have mixed us watching him with another Ajax player instead.

Thanks Ed.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Apr 2019 22:14:59
There will be more interests in him I suppose, after today's game vs. Juventus.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Apr 2019 00:40:43
Saw him play for Brazil in the last game, and he was really very good; a game changer the moment he came on. Equally good today, versus Juventus. Right-footed, but can play on both wings, just like Mane.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 19:05:53
Still only young and a very respectable return this season with goal contributions. I've only watched him twice so my opinion of him can't be made yet but at that age there's plenty more potential. Personally I don't see Wilson in klopps plans, he's not suited to our style, he deserves a pre season and hopefully prove me wrong.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 12:33:02
Morning reds, I've heard from a good mate of mine, who knows a guy, who knows a guy that Liverpool " officials " are due to fly out to Germany in the coming weeks to discuss a potential transfer for one of Bayer Leverkusen's " star " players who has informed his club he wishes to leave and his club has granted him and his agent permission to speak to clubs interested and apparently Liverpool are one of those interested and the player Is very eager to join also. Please don't shoot the messenger but my mate did inform me that Naby keita was joining Liverpool even after all went quiet about it and he said he had a hunch we'd sign Fabinho, so who know ey, enjoy your day people.

Agree17 Disagree5

10 Apr 2019 13:00:37
Great rumour, WBM. Nice with a bit of old fashion gossip. I'll go with it. Bayern have a talented squad with L. Hradecky, J. Tah, L. Bender, K. Harvertz, J. Brandt and L. Bailey all ready to make the next step in my opinion. Not necessarily to Liverpool, but wouldn't mind some of these to join.

Agree8 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 13:07:21
Love it to be true, he does actually have a lot of knowledge regarding Liverpool business which is always exciting as a fan, if it’s true I’d love it to be havertz or Brandt.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 14:02:04
I’d only take Havertz of Brandt. The rest are very over rated they have struggled all season and taken beatings from the likes of schalke and Leipzig. 9/ 18 in a poor league tells you something.

Agree0 Disagree6

10 Apr 2019 14:23:20
Fingers crossed for BRandt. Brings solid competition for Ox, Keita and Mane, and that too for a reasonable price.

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 20:55:46
Havertz. let it happen! 🙏.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Apr 2019 06:43:37
It won't be for Hervertz. Brandt has a release clause this summer of 25 mio € so its more likely to be him.

If i remember correctly Leverkusen want around 100 mio for Havertz and according to reports hell end up at Bayern in 2020.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 12:41:02
I'm thinking it's Hazard, lads?

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 12:41:02
I'm thinking it's Hazard, lads?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 13:41:37
Thought Hazard was all set for Dortmund? Also he doesn't play for Leverkusen does he?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 15:50:45
Won’t be hazard, as he plays for borussia mönchengladbach.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 11:51:10
It will be Brandt, IMO as Klopp wanted him as first choice before we went for Salah. Klopp may not have lost interest in him still esp. cos now he plays the no. 10 role at Leverkusen whereas back then, he played on the left.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 18:12:00
Would of loved him to tell me who it was they’re interested in talking to but I’m not even sure he knows himself, Thankfully Liverpool are more discreet in their business these days especially. Be nice if it came off and I’d be happy with either. Brandt is obviously the most likely, and would fit in great.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 08:09:27
Morning All,
A question for the Ed’s if possible. There appears to be a fair amount of interest in Camacho, especially from Portugal, however, there has been scribblings that Wolves have a level of interest in signing him also. Are you aware of what the clubs intentions are with him, or indeed, what the player himself feels he needs for this stage of his career? Be that staying at LFC where it seems evident 1st team football ( regular) seems a reasonable way off for him or if he feels regular football is needed now at another club?

Many thanks.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - There are growing issues with younger players having the expectation that they should be playing in the first team. This is not just a problem at Liverpool as other clubs have a similar problems, for example, Manchester City lost Sancho and both Fulham and Chelsea are losing young players this summer for the same reason. If a suitable offer is made then I would expect Liverpool to take the much needed money.}

09 Apr 2019 10:13:02
Thanks for the response Ed, much appreciated.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 12:58:24
Ed with regard to your answer above should we be reading in to the 'much needed money' comment or was it just a turn of phrase? I only ask as I can't see us gaining all that much financially from a youth player and we have already have money from Ings sale this summer and the solanke money in January.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I would not worry about the finances, and certainly not the Solanke money.}

09 Apr 2019 15:44:41
@Ohyoubeauty We have done rather well recently selling young players that aren't going to make it with us for decent money.

Jerome Sinclair, Brad Smith, Jordan Ibe, Dominic Solanke.

If there's decent demand for Camacho, I've plenty of confidence that we'll get a decent fee for him.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 18:32:47
Thanks Ed for your response. Thanks epic I agree, I think we have done really well with some of the fee's lately. I know it doesn't directly effect us fans however it is good to know the club are being run in a positive fashion both on and off the pitch. To compete for the top signings we have to have the finances so it goes hand in hand really.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 01:34:48
unfortunately it appears to be a side earner for big clubs. snap up all young talent. play odd game and sell for few mill. wouldn't be surprised if likes of wilson. woodburn. brewster. duncan. awayoni. allen. hoever all went in next 2 years. £60m in bank as very few make it to 1st team.

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed0333's Note - I would be super surprised if the powers that be are looking to sell Brewster, Duncan and Hoever. They are on a trajectory to stardom I would assume.

08 Apr 2019 22:05:31
Hi Eds seen today we've been linked to Wolves left back Ruben Vinagre, do you know of any interest? Thanks as always.

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

08 Apr 2019 22:15:36
Thanks for the reply Ed002. Hope you are enjoying the exciting end to the season wherever you are!

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Thanks. Not sure where I will be.}

09 Apr 2019 03:05:17
Hi eds, any full backs we are interested/ looking at?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - My expectation is Liverpool will look to Adam Lewis as LB cover else I would think he would need to consider his future. As for RB cover, Liverpool have looked at Kenny Lala but he has only just signed a new contract. Ed001 has suggested that Trent-Alexander will be moving to midfield, although I don't see space for him there, if he did that then Liverpool would be looking for a first pick right back. I am sure the scouts are working hard looking at options.}

09 Apr 2019 10:24:18
Wouldn't have said it a few months back but I do now think TAA should move to midfield. Getting caught too far up now on too many occasions. Maybe tiredness or a niggle could explain it but it is an issue.

Agree1 Disagree1

08 Apr 2019 15:01:14
Hi Ed’s, I read a while back we were looking at James Forrest from Celtic at the time I thought it was a strange one but he’s having a decent season and could be a good addition. Anything in it?

Agree0 Disagree6

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware, and I can't imagine so with Oxlade-Chamberlain being available for next season.}

08 Apr 2019 19:15:07
I love the ox but he is always liable too get injured, he puts his body on the line an gives everything but injuries interrupt his progress which is shabsinald!

Agree2 Disagree19

08 Apr 2019 11:57:54
According to Reports from Germany Liverpool have made a bid for Thorgen Hazard. It is rumoured that the bid is higher than the one from Dortmund (~40 mio €) and Gladbach is willing to sell him to Liverpool rather than Dortmund.

Hazard is keen on joining Dortmund though as they promised him more playing time.

Agree2 Disagree7

08 Apr 2019 12:38:25
How can we bid when the TW is not open mate? Not one that Ed’s has said we have interest in either.

Agree2 Disagree11

08 Apr 2019 13:02:46
Not saying we have bid Virgil, but you can h8d outside a transfer window. You can agree everything. Wages, contract length, transfer fee etc. You just can't transfer registration until the w/ o do a opens. Either way, not sure I believe we've bid for him. But if we wanted to we could.

Agree12 Disagree3

08 Apr 2019 14:22:08
if we can't be linked with Insigne, Depay and the like because it will mean that one of our front 3 will have to be sold. coupled with the fact that we ARE looking for an AM/ LM, why can't we bid for a player like T. Hazard?

Eintlik . . . we can a team that's competing for the title bid for?

Agree1 Disagree3

08 Apr 2019 14:48:14
Ed do we have any interest in Thorgen Hazard please?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I will try and explain the situation regarding Thorgan Hazard as best I can. Borussia Dortmund agreed before Christmas that they would take Thorgan Hazard for next season as he can play both as an AM and a LW and they have players in those positions they wish to move on. What they did not realise at the time was Andre Schurrle would be returning from his loan a year early. So they need to move AS on and have offered him to a couple of sides - one of which is Borussia Moenchengladbach - as part of the deal for Hazard. Right now the clubs have not agreed any price and nothing will be confirmed until they do. I am not aware of any offer for Hazard from Liverpool and he, again, would not move to sit on the bench at Anfield.}

08 Apr 2019 14:51:32
I think Hazard would be a good fit as a rotational Player. I would see he is a upgrade to Shaquiri and could be used as either rotation for our wings or with OX in the offensive midfield.

However i don't think there is much to it. He seems pretty much set on dortmund and in this case he has more power over his future than his Club as he has just one more year left on his contract and Gladbach has and wants to sell him as they need the money.

Agree3 Disagree1

08 Apr 2019 15:56:53
Thank you Ed for clearing that up. Crammie he won’t move to be a rotation player mate as explained by Ed.

Agree3 Disagree5

08 Apr 2019 18:04:35
60 games, three or four attackers will leave. Plenty of games to go around for another attacker.

Agree5 Disagree1

08 Apr 2019 18:38:16
Little Naby I agree what your saying mate but the trouble we have is improving the back ups we already have. Origi and Brewster will be scorching chances next year along with Shaqiri who can all cover the front 3. Unless one of our starting front 3 leave then we shouldn’t expect to much other than squad padding and back up players.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Apr 2019 20:23:28
Is it attackers we have missed this season? I don’t get it maybe we have missed someone in midfield to pull the strings but don’t think it’s our front three that need an addition. Origi has come on end of this season him
And Brewster should be fine to cover us. Would rather us spend the money in areas we need to strengthen lb/ lm rb/ cb maybe another midfielder if one leaves.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 19:56:05
Virgil, Madrid agreed to sign Eder Militao in March, with him signing on July 1st, so it's very possible to agree to a transfer outside of the window.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 11:56:37
Watched Hazard play a tonne for Munchengladbach last season and this season nad IMO, he is not all that. He has flashes of brilliance and all that BUT too inconsistent. In fact a week or so back, his manager pulled him from the game in the.31st minute due to severely poor play. That's all you need to know, right there. There are other wingers/ wide forwards we can get BUT Thorgan Hazard to me, would be a waste of money.

Agree0 Disagree0
