Rumors of Lemar popping up again. Torn on this potential deal. Will probably have to spend nearly all the Coutinho cash on Lemar and get a quality player to boost our first team but again we could go out and buy better defenders by selling Coutinho and giving Woodburn and Ojo more chances instead of splurging on Lemar. Hope Klopp gets this decision right.

Agree13 Disagree5

12 Dec 2017 09:44:46
Sorry but unless you want to challenge for the top four and push for the title I’m sorry but kids with potential won’t cut it. I’m all for giving them a chance but if we’re to compete with the teams above us in the league we also need to compete with them in the transfer market.

Agree16 Disagree10

12 Dec 2017 10:08:34
I really think Lemar is the ideal signing to replace Coutinho. Comfortable out on the left where Klopp likes to deploy Coutinho. If Salah is going to stay more central like the last few games then Mane can go back on the right where he looked more lethal last year than he has on the left this year! Genuinely believe this signing would help the team immeasurably.

Agree23 Disagree1

12 Dec 2017 11:45:20
Were are these rumours popping up again please IB? I no Ed002 said in the Sharkopod we have interest mate but a deal would be hard to get done.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 12:29:30
Fenton, Lemar's form this season worries me. Maybe because he is not giving his 100% after Monaco sold half their team and showed lack of ambition or he has not been able to adjust with his new team mates. But the money being touted around to sign Lemar is just plain ridiculous. I can understand spending 50-60 million pounds but close to 90 million? He is not worth that much.

Agree6 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 12:41:42
Indian in todays market mate that's the price you're going to have to pay unfortunately. I'm not saying I think he's worth that much but I think he's our best option out there if Coutinho leaves! Regarding his form, I trust Klopp to get the best out of any player so that doesn't worry me.

Agree6 Disagree1

12 Dec 2017 13:08:06
Like him, but definitely not done enough to suggest he is a 90m player. Yes in today's market 50-60m but think if 90m is asking price we need to move on. There is still mane's and salah out there for far better value.

Agree4 Disagree1

{Ed025's Note - they wont be asking you to contribute coco so dont worry about the price mate..

12 Dec 2017 13:51:13
Lemar shouldn't be the priority! Need defenders first.

Agree4 Disagree1

12 Dec 2017 13:45:05
Lol Ed025. Your reply to Coco just made me spit coffee on my laptop screen. You owe me one laptop screen cleaning solution.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i will put one in the post IB mate.. :)

12 Dec 2017 13:56:27
Ed025, Are you aware were or why this has surfaced from again mate today?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - not really KR, liverpool will always be associated with good players mate and he is certainly one of them..

12 Dec 2017 14:55:07
I would rather we raid Leipzig again for Forsberg.

Agree0 Disagree5

12 Dec 2017 15:09:34
Thanks forthe reassurance Ed025 Haha I was getting worried it would near empty my account. (I wish)

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - you save your money coco im sure the club dont need it mate..

12 Dec 2017 15:48:46
Cheers ed. I just wish I knew what was fact and what is fabricated mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - im sure we will find out presently KR mate..

12 Dec 2017 17:31:51
Yes mate im sure we will. I was kinda hoping you might know mate lol🤔.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I can tell you that whilst in Switzerland and Monte Carlo that another English club have been talking to Monaco about Lemar and another matter in the past couple of days.}

12 Dec 2017 18:47:32
Ok Ed002. Thanks. You did say there is plenty of interest in him and a deal would be a hard one to get done. Especially if other club ate already making advances. Not likely then by the sounds of it.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in him from a number of clubs.}

13 Dec 2017 03:53:02
We won't be getting Lemar. Pretty confident about that.
Someone like Draxler looks a more realistic and like for like replacement for Coutinho (if he leaves in January) .

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Dec 2017 07:07:25
IB you started this rumour mate lol.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Dec 2017 20:01:49
The club has already declined to go to 90m level for Lemar last summer so don’t see why would change.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 11:49:13
Question for any of the edds in your opinion do you think we will go back in for vvd in January?

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - no.}

11 Dec 2017 11:56:57
Ed would that be bec the damage we did in the summer?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes, thankfully it has worked out for the best by the looks of it.}

11 Dec 2017 12:11:44
Terrible defender imo. Has anyone seen in his performances this season? Don't know whether terrible is an apt word or should I just say he is plain c**p?

Agree7 Disagree15

11 Dec 2017 13:13:35
Ed what do you mean worked out for the best?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I mean VVD is not the answer and not the player we should be buying so it is good news the move is unlikely to happen. Isn't that obvious? Have you not watched him play? He is ridiculously overrated and not a good defender.}

11 Dec 2017 13:36:33
Thanks for the reply eds001 who do you think me mite go for edds I'm amazed klopp don't give Joe gomez a start at centre back looks our best defender to me?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Gomez is young and learning, you have seen how Lovren is being crucified by the fans, do you really think that is what Gomez needs right now?}

11 Dec 2017 13:25:12
If I’m honest not watched much of him this season what I saw last season he looked a good defender but I’ve never really thought he’s the leader we need.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 13:46:05
Ye good point edds to be fair let's hope we bring in a good defender or 2 as matip lovern look poor to me.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - we do need an upgrade but Gomez is learning fine at right back and growing as a player, no rush to move him central yet. For starters who will fill in at right back?}

11 Dec 2017 13:59:08
Imagine getting both De Vrij and Koulibaly in January. wet dreams!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - De Vrij is injury prone and slow, not sure he would be the answer in a much faster, more physical league which tends to increase the risk of injury.}

11 Dec 2017 14:21:51
Ed Who is the answer then since we are in need an upgrade in that position?

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - why do I have to answer the same question a thousand times? I have said what I think over and over, if you weren't listening then, why should I believe you would bother now?}

11 Dec 2017 14:35:58
Then Koulibaly and Gemenez.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 14:48:12
Salif Sane for Hannover 96 this season:
13 games played.
1 goal.
Pass accuracy 80%.
8.5 clearances per game.
2.2 tackles per game.
2.5 intercepions per game.
9.4 won duels per game.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - and? That is just meaningless numbers. I mean how many of those clearances could he have dealt with differently? How many chances to make clearances did fail to make? How many of those tackles should he have stood up and not made? How many tackles did he have to make because he was out of position and could have been turned into passes going elsewhere if he had been positioned correctly? I could go on but there is little point, the numbers mean nothing.}

11 Dec 2017 14:59:18
Doubt there realistic signing especially in jan.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Dec 2017 15:04:48
So Ed01, you don't rate Salif sane?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - He didn't say that. What he is saying is that the random statistics for a random player Liverpool has zero interest in at this time are completely meaningless.}

11 Dec 2017 15:51:50
It's hard as a fan to scout other team's center backs. You'd have to watch them regularly, take into account what defenders around them are doing, if they're doing the organising or leaving it up to someone else, what system their team plays, if they're contributing to the opposition getting an easy build up against them, how other teams approach playing them etc. Stats, highlights or even watching two or three full matches just doesn't tell you enough.

I like the look of Lascelles, for example, but I don't know if he'd cope with having to play a high line and cover extra ground, and stay alert without an opposition forward in his face for long periods if he were here. That's the change in system that Lovren struggled with since joining from Southampton.

Agree11 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 16:04:47
Soz ed 01 hate too go over old ground I come all site for info all the time but do miss some bits, who in your opinion is quality and we could move for at centre back, personally I think we need a striker, I like seeing us give games too solanke and ings but solanke is raw and ings is coming back from injury, sturridge looks like he set on somewhere else wat do u think.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I have not heard of anyone likely to be available in January that would be worth moving for to be honest. Sturridge was out injured at the weekend but I do expect him to leave in summer.}

11 Dec 2017 20:46:54
Ok thanx ed I didn't realize he was injured, surely we can get someone in who can do a job maybe an experienced head too fit in, I dread we don't do anything in January window.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Dec 2017 20:50:03
Bloody hell that's worrying then ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Dec 2017 21:37:27
KR17- you worry that Sturridge will leave? He has been awful for a long while and nothing suggests he’s going to turn it around.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2017 20:04:17
I think it is harsh to say he has been awful. He hasn’t. He has been way below what he once was and unless he can stay fit and get regular match time he probably won’t be back to a high standard, may not anyway. I don’t think it is going to damage us to lose him but I think he hasn’t been rubbish either.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Dec 2017 22:54:17
Hi eds,
Any news if we're going to be doing business this window?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I have no doubts that Liverpool will be looking to one or two changes - much will depend if any of the first team, say the first 18, leave.}

10 Dec 2017 23:22:21
Cheers ed have a great Christmas and new year!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - THanks man - and you.}

09 Dec 2017 18:46:38
I get sketchy rumours from a friend in Spain who is a freelance scout for Spanish lower league sides.

Latest is that Liverpool are talking to Athletic Madrid about a transfer of a player in January.

With his record, I will say with almost certainty that no athletico Madrid player will join in January.

But hey. I 'll post it now and take the credit anyway in January.

I'm still waiting for Pellegrino to manage Barcelona and Isco to play for Man City 😀.

Agree7 Disagree2

09 Dec 2017 19:33:07
Gimenes maybe.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2017 20:36:37
Jan Oblak pleeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaasssseeeeeee.

Agree10 Disagree5

09 Dec 2017 22:48:13
Who knows. maybe we will be using all the profit from selling Couts to get Oblak!

I am exaggerating, but I would like the team to show interest in him for the january (doubtful) or the summer. Sadly, if I recall correctly, one of the eds has said that we have no interest in him and won't happen.

Agree3 Disagree3

10 Dec 2017 09:37:47
So secretive from your friend? Then most likely it is Griezmann.

Agree0 Disagree4

10 Dec 2017 10:21:06
Small correction, it was Pellegrini he said would join Barcelona before he went to city. Doesn't make it any more right though.

I would say gimienez myself if it was true however I don't think personally klopp will go this route.

My thoughts on January is that we will keep coutinho and add only a cb. Either van dijk or de vrij as they could help us in cl also. That's just my gut.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Dec 2017 11:20:12
Its Saul and Gemenez for sure.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 13:19:56
Got to be a box to box midfielder - surely.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2017 16:06:38
I like my nzonzi why not him then we can let emre can leave an we have cover, but I heard he got a son in London so he might end up at a London club.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2017 10:25:07
Hi Eds.

Some reports that Can has signed a pre- agreement with Juventus.

Any truth in this?

Thanks for all the hard work.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - some reports are made up nonsense. Can cannot sign anything yet.}

09 Dec 2017 11:21:08
I was led to believe that Emre would sign in the summer, the vibe around the club and how we are playing is a major influence, yes Juve are interested but I still believe Emre will sign on - if he does leave then it must be something between Klopp and Emre as Macca reported.

Agree3 Disagree1

09 Dec 2017 17:50:54
Thanks Ed. Appreciate the reply.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - welcome. He can sign a pre-contract agreement in January mate.}

10 Dec 2017 09:31:12
I guess the reports may not be completely untrue. Its feasible that his representative has agreed a package with Juve which will then be formally signed once the window opens.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Dec 2017 11:43:21
Either way Ed Can is off and to be honest I think he will do very well in Italy.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2017 15:15:52
Few bits of info -

Serri - LFC and Man City again linked today with a 35+ million move

Sergi Roberto - LFC apparently want him included in any deal for PC

Peter Moore - LFC still have the intention to increase the Anfield Road end by another 6000 seats bringing the stadium up to 60,000

Also gives the impression there will be January arrivals.

Agree19 Disagree0

08 Dec 2017 17:20:34
Oh, to be linked with a couple of centre-backs! Well you can wish at Xmas time!

Agree9 Disagree0

08 Dec 2017 17:13:18
Ed do you know if Sergi Roberto is a player that might be included in the deal? You said Rafinha is posdible but not sure on Roberto?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona are not looking to sell Sergi Roberto - and they have confirmed that position in discussions with an interested Premier League side. Right now there have been some contract talks and the player is pretty sure they will reach agreement and he will get to stay.}

08 Dec 2017 18:10:36
Ok mate many thanks for your reply.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2017 10:52:52
Is the possibility there for Liverpool to extend all the stands if they eventually wanted to? As in financial, structurally and the surrounding area?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - No.}

09 Dec 2017 12:27:19

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Dec 2017 15:31:10
Afternoon all,

I'm a strong believer that Emre Can has already made his mind up to depart the club but he has made some noises to suggest he hasn't. This is probably using the media to ease any fan reaction but would love to know if the Eds are aware of any developments on the contract front. I know the original issue was playing time be his is pretty much an ever present and has defiantly developed this season. Would hate to lose him for free in the summer.

Thanks as always.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware he is just keeping his options open and just wanting to see what else is on the table.}

07 Dec 2017 17:50:38
Cheers Ed, hope your well matey!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, but don't get your hopes up on him staying, he has had plenty of opportunities to sign a contract.}

07 Dec 2017 23:25:14
Yeah I do believe he already has an agreement with Juve and will announce it in Jan unfortunatly. No one is bigger than the club and perhaps someone else can take the opportunity.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Dec 2017 08:42:53
Just out of curiosity is a pre contract agreement completely binding or can either party pull out?
Not saying for can but in general can you have turn arounds where either the team pulls out or the player decides to sign a new contract at home or elsewhere?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes it has happened in the past but there are penalties to be paid.}

08 Dec 2017 12:28:51
Maybe if no contract in place and we manage to win UCL beating Barcelona 4-3 in final, he may do a La Stevie and stay back.

Agree1 Disagree2

07 Dec 2017 10:05:39
Hey eds02,
Perr Schuurs has signed for AJAX. What did LFC do to scupper the deal this time?

Agree0 Disagree7

{Ed002's Note - Perr Schuurs had four firm offers and decided the one which would suit his career best.}

07 Dec 2017 10:16:49
Fair play to the lad for showing a humbleness that too many young players don't have. He looked very likely to sign for us at one stage, but who can blame him for going for first team football over money? Respect.

Agree10 Disagree0

07 Dec 2017 10:33:30
we weren't offering him first team football, i think he made the best choice, assuming he gets his chances to play, but im sure he will.

Agree5 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 15:56:42
Hi ed2 are we interested in Seri from Nice? Thanks.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Jean-Michael Seri (CM) was looked at as a potential option to Nobby Keita in the summer. Barcelona came close to completing his transfer in the summer and that failure as made the player rather miffed and he wants to move on. He previously said that he was not interested in Arsenal but his agent says he would now consider the move as a way out of Nice - but he wants to play for Barcelona. He has also said that the player does not want to move to Rome (probably ending their previous interest) and the recent interest of PSG they need to discuss.

If Liverpool are looking to him again it is not clear to me - nor why they would want another Nobby K in the side. I am aware of Liverpool scouts attending a Nice game recently but it was simply to look at another player - and that is something they have not taken further so it is of no relevance. Barcelona do still have Seri as one of several alternatives to eventually becoming the Iniesta replacements - but he is not first pick. So they could be back. Arsenal may well also place a bid but right now we are looking to see the impact of a couple of new chaps they have taken on. PSG interest is reasonably new and they have spoken with his agent - but no more (this is as of a week ago).}

06 Dec 2017 17:07:22
Thanks for the reply.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Dec 2017 18:01:37
Who is the nice player they’d were watching?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Malang Sarr who is a CB who is comfortable at LB.}

06 Dec 2017 18:19:56
Thanks for info Ed002. Haven't seen Seri play but do you or any of the other Eds think he may have skill set to be a more defensive midfielder? Or are his main strengths going forward?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know but if Klopp wants to change his system to play a DM then he really needs to look for a specialist.}

06 Dec 2017 18:23:30
Ed with coutino and can going could we be looking at seri aswell as keita.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - if Klopp decides he doesn’t want to replace Coutinho or use the likes of Grujic, then perhaps.}

06 Dec 2017 19:21:14
The scouts were there to watch a player by the name of Ballotelli. It's stated that he is the next big thing. Get him now while we can!


Agree3 Disagree3

06 Dec 2017 23:52:20
So this Malang Sarr isn’t someone we are potentially looking at?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - He was being scouted by Liverpool. I don't really get why this seems so complicated to you. Just ignore Sarr.}

07 Dec 2017 17:47:02
Thanks for the reply Ed002 I’ve seen Sarr play a few times and he look so like he has a bright future!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are right - well thought of. Perhaps a little raw right now.}

05 Dec 2017 11:56:02
Hey Ed’s, love site I’m new too this but been reading posts for few years now, just want say keep up good work we all appreciate work and info that you process us. And one last thing is there any interest in Leon Goretzka from Shalke as I know his contract running down and think be seriously good addition especially if and be most likely Can leaves on free in summer cheers Ed’s.

Agree2 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Thanks. Schalke have offered Leon Goretzka a very good new contract and he is mulling that over whilst he is aware of offers from Barcelona and Juventus that will be formalised in January. Additionally his representatives have spoken with three English sides (not Liverpool) and are awared of renewed interest from Bayern Munich, although that is complicated by regulation. Arsenal having taken a new employee on board are certainly interested and I would not rule out Manchester United but he is perhaps third pick for them. For reasons that are beyond me, many Liverpool fans are convinced that he has already agreed to join the club. Liverpool's interest stems from when they were struggling to agree a deal for Keita and he was seen as a potential option. Bayern Munich are making it known that they would offer a guarantee for the summer but they cannot speak to him in January - although they will continue to make their position clear to his agent. The player has said he would like to move to Barcelona.}

05 Dec 2017 22:14:12
Thank you for reply Ed 002 much appreciated.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}
