Hi Eds, enjoying your output in the silly pre-season before the window silly season. Will Woodburn be loaned out next season? My worry with him as regards making it to be a really great Liverpool player, is his lack of pace. He's unlikely to figure too much I'd have thought if we make 2-3 more signings.

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - right now he is not set for a loan move, but that may change. A lot depends on what offers we get for him and if any would offer him the football he needs.}

28 Jun 2017 15:08:30
Cheers Ed, what I expected I guess. Like all young players who show early promise you wanna see what they can actually do away from that crazy "he's amazing; he said awful" hyperbole we fans can get caught up in.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - agreed. However it only takes a few games where they are not looking amazing before fans are ready to give up and move on to the next bright young thing coming through, see Origi for an example.}

28 Jun 2017 15:41:34
I love Origi have done since we signed him!

Agree2 Disagree3

28 Jun 2017 17:14:58
Agree, JT but you will be shocked how many Liverpool fans on social media want him sold. It is mind-boggling.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 14:10:48
Thanks for the reply ed01 robertson is not i am convinced as well but what can we do we support whoever wear our great club shirt but do u think and from your sources that liverpool will sign ricardo perriera or some other quality right back and go for other centre half like ben gibson or koulibly
Thanks ed001.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I believe all three are off to different teams than ours.}

28 Jun 2017 08:11:30
The german Media linked us with Max Meyer from Schalke (yes, again) .

Apperently he would be available for €15mio which are peanuts these days for a talented young player with a decent amount of first team experience.

Any thoughts/ news? I know tottenham is interested aswell but we should have the advantage with Klopp and a few german players.

Agree3 Disagree8

28 Jun 2017 08:53:57
My issues with this is, we have plenty of young talent who we should be giving chances to before forking out money for young players like Max Meyer, no matter the amount.

Agree17 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 09:12:59
Has not looked ready for EPL from what have seen of the current U-21's tourney and not seen enough of Bundesliga to really judge him too much. I also very highly doubt that he will be available for that amount to an EPL team.

Salah signing has ended any possibility of him joining I would think and from what I have seen of him would rather give our own youth a chance.

Agree5 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 09:36:55
Meerkat: Meyer is a Central midfielder though so i won't see a problem with signing Meyern and Salah.

I haven't watched the U21 but i do watch the Bundesliga (rarely miss a match day) and he looks promising for a U21. Decent ball controll, not one of the quickest players there is but still has a fair amount of pace to him and he wants to develop.

I think he won't be a bad choice for squad depth but on the other hand we can't just add 50 Midfielders. The media likes to link us with every player there is on the market and evenmore with every decent young german player because of Klopp. I hope that our transfer business will be solved as quick as possible so that the squad can start preseason as complete as possible.

Agree1 Disagree5

28 Jun 2017 09:57:17
No better than our current young crop from what i've seen of him in the U21s.

Agree9 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 10:04:22
I agree, Crammie regarding every German player being linked to us bcos of Klopp. As for Meyer, I am not that keen on him as he is an attacking midfielder who will not dislodge any of our starters and will not agree to being a bench warmer so I call nonsense on these links esp. since he's been linked with us since Klopp took over.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 10:47:29
Afcom will come around again and we will need width. Don't get a great deal of promising German players here ozil. Let's face it. they are winners. Klopp will win the league if given the time although I think this is our year. With a bit more depth I think we would have won this one just gone. We're sensational at the start. So what if you concede every week if we're scoring 3/ 4/ 5. Anything else we sign ie cb lb will be a bonus. Like to see more of T. A. A this year and maybe ojo and solanke. Max Meyer will be z smart move. I been waiting for klopp to slowly bring the low lands over to liverpool. Could set a precedent.

Agree0 Disagree10

28 Jun 2017 11:01:45
Ojo, Wilson, Woodburn just get rid of those talents then Jonny?

Agree8 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 11:15:23
No of course not Bobby. Although Meyer has already got experience at the highest level. More a first team player than another promising talent. He's already delivering the goods. Woodburn will get through, needs to bulk up is all and ojo and t. a. a will I believe. None of those are wingers either. In 3 yrs he'll be £35 mil player at least.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Jun 2017 11:18:38
Also if you get a group of very good youngsters playing together week in week out reserves, under 23s. It can only be a good thing. Some other team did alright with their kids. Poor now though.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 11:46:36
BobbyJ do you not know, everyone else's young players are better than ours. Why play your own young player when you can spend £15mil and buy one! Madness or "far away feilds. "

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 11:59:23
But your putting another player in their way blocking the way to the first team.

Doesn't make sense to me and what i've seen of Meyer he is by no means 1st team ready for Lpool.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 12:06:20
If we sign vvd and Meyer the team is starting to look quite Dutch or deutsch land. Nothing wrong with that. I like ox coz he's another England player.

Agree0 Disagree7

28 Jun 2017 12:18:56
Jonny: England players are more expensive though because they are english. If you look back at the euros or even the world cup most England players came from Liverpool (i think at the worldcup we had 9 players in the England squad) .

Also if we get vvd, meyer and keita we have a Afcon/ Dutch/ German side. :D.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 13:04:39
Crammed you would have to admit that £25 mil is a good deal. For an English player. Not like we're paying over the odds for him coz he's English. I think Meyer would make it in the first team. Like I said I'm sure Woodburn ojo and tta will get through, buying Meyer does not halt the progress of any of those three. He's a winger. Tta wing back and two strikers. I know it's controversial to praise the gerries but I for one wouldn't mind a few more at Liverpool. Can is class, hanman was different class and he's big reason we won European cup. There good at football.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 13:10:42
Tbh I have never seen Meyer play live. But I don't know how anyone can say he not as ready as Ojo for our first team when he has played regularly in budesliga and in European competions.

Also he is currently playing for Germany's u21s and has player for the senior side where ojo was with our u18s.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 13:20:01
Jonny: i don't think we will buy Meyer just to put that out there. Ox would be a great signing and i would prefer him over meyer any time of the day.

But Meyer is a CM/ CAM not a winger to clear things up. He had to play some games as a winger because a) Schalke have Goretzka, Bentaleb and Geis as their main CMs and b) Schalke has a problem on the wings with Konoplyanka who played like sh*t, Embolo beeing injured, Chupo beeing inconsistend and Caliguri not having a great time either.

Agree1 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 19:07:24
Jackored - Simple really he's playing in a lesser league as a whole and in a worse team one that finished 10th last year so that's how he gets in.

Ojo for the record is a winger so Meyer would be in direct competition.

Like the above everyone is too quick to glamorise the foreign import and justify it somehow via price-tags its just wrong. Give the current acadamy graduates a chance or why bother having one and paying for one to run?

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 00:12:31
With all of the speculation surrounding Oxlade-Chamberlain joining, which I would very much welcome, does this mean players like ovie and gruijic are going to be considered surplus to requirements?

Big fan of both those players so just wondering where their futures lie?

Agree3 Disagree3

28 Jun 2017 05:51:50
I hope he's more likely to play on the wing if he comes in - we don't have as many natural wide options and we already have Coutinho, Llalana, Gini and Grujic in attacking midfield.

Ejaria I suspect is a couple of years away but Grujic should be getting regular game time IMO.

Agree9 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 06:15:26
What a massive misjudged signing it would be to have those two leave.

Agree6 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 08:36:33
We need more depth to the squad and the younger players aren't ready for champions league football. Klopp wants the ox to add depth to the squad with someone who is versatile and has a positive hard working attitude, and 25m is nothing by today's standards for a young versatile player. Klopp will get him playing the way he wants, and if it doesn't work out we should still be fine to sell him for a similar amount. Don't see why there's so much negativity, it would be nice to sign someone more quality but we can only sign who is available at this current time and wants to come to us.

Agree6 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 10:10:11
I agree with you Danz however, my only issue is that Ox has not shown the game awareness and intelligence to play in Arsenal's team and has a poor record with them. Our system is not an easy one to play in both physically and tactically and you need tactical intelligence to play in it, something Ox is severely lacking. He said he sees himself as a CM. That ain't going to happen cos he is not fit to start over any of our CM's. Not even Grujic. There's a reason players like Benteke, Ibe, Allen and soon Marko and Moreno no longer/ will no longer play for us under Klopp. This is cos they can't hack it under Klopp's system. Now if Klopp thinks he can fix him then, I defer to him. I just don't see that happening BUT I'm open to being proved wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 10:11:42
Think you nailed it Danz. Grujic I would say is more than ready to play though. We definitely need to beef out the squad that was plain to see last season with far less games.

Would be nice to see some more youngsters come through but at 23 the ox is very good business. Klopp has instilled so much belief in this squad be good to see what he can do with the ox.

He's addressing the wing issues. Let's just get Left Back sorted and I think we will all be a lot happier. Which I'm sure he will.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 10:50:31
Well said Dan. I can totally see why klopp likes him, I'm well excited by the deal. I bet my reputation (which is pretty poor) that he will become An field legend.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 11:01:18
I'm sorry but Brussels red is wrong. Ox has been brilliant for arsenal at times. If we're honest arsenal play nice football, yeah? And he has years of experience at the very highest level. And he's only 23! Like Dan said. he's versatile and klopp loves to interchange. £25 mil absolute bargain.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Jun 2017 12:31:31
I'd imagine klopp has promised the owners it's ox who'll be the missing piece to win us the league, until he sets his sights on the next missing piece. Regardless I've no issue with the lad and I'll support all new signings and keep my fingers crossed we behave properly from here on out but I just feel we're not to far away from another troubling event.

Agree0 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 17:01:44
Ox hasn't been the missing link to Arsenal winning the league so there's no reason to think that he'll suddenly make us into title winners 🙄.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 18:04:43
Jonny, that is your opinion BUT you said it yourself that Ox has been good for Arsenal at times. If that is the case you are making then I fear for you. Why? He's been there for 5 seasons and played over 150 games for them and all you have to offer as a counter argument is that he's been brilliant at times? How many times? Sorry bro BUT you're going to have to do better than that to support your point.

Wijnaldum has played 2 years in the PL and the Ox is not in the same league as Wiji, nor in the same league as Hendo, Can, Lallana or even Grujic who is very talented and promising. His versatility does nothing for me cos he is a jack of all trades and master of none. Milner is more effective versatility than Ox BUT I wouldn't want him anywhere near CM which is where Ox sees himself. Having said all that, if Klopp thinks he can work with him then I'll fall back and let him prove me and the rest of us wrong, just like he did with Wijnaldum.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 22:36:58
Apparently we are interested in Matt Hale.
Great signing and would save us significant sums of money in the long run
Await another official complaint.

Agree0 Disagree7

27 Jun 2017 23:24:27
Who is Mattie Hale?

Agree5 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 06:09:38
He runs the Academy for Southampton.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 10:10:58
Must have been tapped up then.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 14:11:36
Hi eds ia there any news on markovich departing. Thank you.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I thought he had already agreed a deal to join Marco Silva again? Or am I getting mixed up?}

27 Jun 2017 15:25:45
They just talked on skype but nothing has been agreed officially yet. Think he's waiting for any offers from bigger foreign clubs that might come in from Italy or the like. But I Reckon Silva's dressing room would be the best place for him.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 15:37:34
Did Markovic and Marco Silva talk on Skype?

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 15:45:05
They both had a drink too many, it was a one time thing. Honest mistake, could've happened to anybody.

Agree6 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 16:02:13
I bet the Skype happened in Blackpool and they exchanged videos too.

Agree0 Disagree4

27 Jun 2017 16:07:05
I think they had a cup of tea at Watford Gap services with Tim Lovejoy.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 18:43:25
So we should file our own tapping complaint, claim victim then raise the price.

Agree1 Disagree7

27 Jun 2017 22:48:08
Doesn't anyone see Lazar staying? Personally think playing in a high-tempo team, or as we did latter part of the season on the counter-would suit him.

Yes he's not going to displace Mane or Salah but ready-made replacement.

I don't think any of the youth set up are considered ready in that 4-2-3-1 formation playing in the 3- so we would just spend getting someone in, who would have to be happy as back up.

Agree1 Disagree3

27 Jun 2017 23:04:38
That's like the wolf dressing up as Grandma and blaming red Riding Hood for pointing it out, we're not always the victims Harry, but this is definitely our fault.

Agree0 Disagree2

28 Jun 2017 09:21:44
Best thing for Markovic would be to move on, our handling of some young players leaves a lot to be desired at times. He has effectively seen his career go backwards under us very similiar to Illori and punted about on various loans has not been too beneficial to him. Would think he will want to move on.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 10:55:12
He was one of hull's best players toward the end of the season. I'm not sure ehy he can't play for us I still like him. controversial I know. He's a good player, needs to feel loved and wanted.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Jun 2017 17:02:36
Tend to agree Jonny, he was messed around, the lad has a lot of talent.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 10:07:20
Hi Ed's,

You had advised that LFC have shifted focus from Keita to AOC, reports emerged last night that contact had been made about availability. Is it a deal you can see having potential to proceed? Within the said report it suggests relations are still strained following the Suarez confusion a couple years back.

Your time is, as always, appreciated


Agree1 Disagree7

{Ed001's Note - the only issue is those strained relations, so I do expect the deal to end up being made.}

27 Jun 2017 10:21:57
Superb, thanks for the swift reply. Have good day.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - welcome, take care mate.}

27 Jun 2017 10:38:25
ed01 what is the reason why ox wants to leave? clearly every arsenal fan i have talked to said he was their best player after alexis and that he had taken starting place in the team regularly especially later in the season. I have a feeling he could be real gem.

Agree4 Disagree5

{Ed001's Note - I have never met an Arsenal fan that thinks that personally and he is keen to join Liverpool because it is the team he supports. He also wants more regular first team football.}

27 Jun 2017 10:48:31
ed is it one or the other or would we still try to get keita this summer?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I am getting deja vu. How many times do I need to reply to this same question?}

27 Jun 2017 10:52:59
One more time ed.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - you sound like my missus.}

27 Jun 2017 10:55:07
Its him wanting more first team football that concerns me ed. Lallana or Wijnaldum look like getting less game time then? We just seem stacked in the CM department mate don't we?

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - we are hoping to have more games.}

27 Jun 2017 10:58:19
read most days ed not seen anyone ask it sorry.

Agree0 Disagree5

{Ed001's Note - I have answered it loads mate.}

27 Jun 2017 11:01:36
So basically we are indulging him in his teenage Steven Gerrard fantasy then? When did we stop being a football club and start becoming 'make a wish'?

Agree4 Disagree13

{Ed001's Note - no, Klopp rates him as a player.}

27 Jun 2017 11:35:04
It was a joke btw I should of put that in.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 11:16:29
I have to admit Ed001, I'm not a religious man, but I'm praying Ox signs that contract at Arsenal. I just can't see what Klopp sees in him. He's just not got the intelligence to play centre midfield.

Agree10 Disagree17

27 Jun 2017 11:29:28
do you rate ox Eds?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - not really.}

27 Jun 2017 12:06:23
Hopefully just a stop gap the Leipzig have a bad season and we grab keita and Werner next season.

Agree2 Disagree6

27 Jun 2017 12:12:53
Same as you, Hansens. I don't know what Klopp sees in Ox that would make him think he can be good for us. I have read all types crap about him being the best Arsenal player after Alexis (what that what? ), or that he is English hence, he's good or made up stats to make him look good or the appalling and funniest of them all, that Ox is better than Lallana (now, that was enuff to make me almost quit posting on this forum), and frankly I don't know what people are smoking. BUT if Klopp wants him then I will back him cos if Ox does well then, LFC succeeds which is all I want in the end.

Agree6 Disagree9

27 Jun 2017 12:24:33
If we sign ox, I'm going to be insistent on one of 3 things. A director of football to oversee transfers 2. A new manager or 3. At the very least, a visit to the optometrist. What a sad, underwhelming signing. Would be better with youth or just handing me the 25 million. Dumb.

Agree5 Disagree27

27 Jun 2017 12:32:14
If we sign him I hope he shuts the 'supporters' slagging him off up. Same thing happened with gini last year and look what he's done for us this season.

Agree29 Disagree4

27 Jun 2017 13:05:31
I too believe he would be a good purchase for the rumoured price. He is only 23 and has a relative wealth of experience (CL too) . I know he is injury prone. But he has proved he is versatile and can surely only improve. It's a poor barometer but I've seen many an Arsenal fan on the internet bemoan that he hasn't been resigned yet.

Just my two penneth.

Agree16 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 13:34:44
Hi eds, does klopp see ox as a cm or a winger? Or is it the versatility that attracts him? Highly underrated player imo. Injury free and he could be one of best in the world.

Agree5 Disagree7

{Ed001's Note - central mid but the versatility is a big bonus. One of the best in the world? Seriously?}

27 Jun 2017 13:37:10
RedTed21 how is pointing out Ox's deficiencies slagging him off? Fact is that when he plays centre midfield against proper bona fide centre midfielders he comes up well short. Been proven time and again, all he does is chase shadows and give the all away. He lacks the composure and the intelligence. It just baffles me and defies any reason and logic, that if you're buying a centre midfielder, why on earth you would settle on a winger with delusions of grandeur?

Agree6 Disagree11

27 Jun 2017 13:52:46
Well put it this way gini was a winger at Newcastle, people thought very similar things about him as people aren't saying about ox, klopp clearly likes ox like he did gini so klopp clearly has the nack for developing players and making them fit his system. Something he will do with ox? So there's no need to see he's not a decent player when he is. I'm not saying he's going to be a starting xi player but he'll definitely get chances and I want him to show you people what he can do because he does have talent clearly some people cannot see it.

Agree5 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - people said Gini had a poor attitude, no one said he lacked technical quality, totally different. No one is questioning Ox's mentality or attitude, just his ability.}

27 Jun 2017 14:54:13
If I remember correctly Ed001 there was a few on here saying he wasn't good enough and I'd imagine it'd be a similar few who say the same about ox.

Agree5 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I do not remember that.}

27 Jun 2017 15:03:06
Ed001, I have to take issue with your claim that Ox supports LFC. I have a link to an interview where he clearly states he has been an Arsenal fan for many years. Peace!

Agree4 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 15:10:11
Fair enough Ed001, if we sign ox do you think klopp can develop him into a much better player?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - better, yes, but I don't see much improvement available as he is just not technically good enough. I like his energy and enthusiasm, but technically he does not impress me at all.}

27 Jun 2017 15:10:42
I find it amazing LFCfans see OXs attributes and don't understand why Klopp is interested. Pace, power, strong positionally and versatile. If you were reviewing CVs at your local Kloppissons he would definitely get an interview.

Admittedly be lucky to start first team unless we went three at the back and he becomes the wing back.

Benchwise though he certainly improves our depth.

Agree5 Disagree4

27 Jun 2017 15:21:46
Thanks Ed001 and I agree karius hair game that he makes our bench stronger but not the starting xi, would definitely improve depth problems.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Jun 2017 15:23:04
Is Ox bad ability wise? I not sure I agree. I don't think he is a world class talent (nor the potential for it) but he does had the potential to be a very good player with the right guidance. He also has the benefit of experience of all types of games in both Prem and Europe and has won trophies. He is also versatile and while I agree he cannot play in a deep CM role he can play a more advanced one and is familiar with wing play (a role I suspect he is being recruited for)

I don't think he is a teriible signing but could definitely be hit or miss. Price is really irrelevant to us fans anyway and when considering new players only 2 questions should be asked from a managerial perspective (leave the money to money men)
1. Is this player something we need?
2. Is this player good enough to fulfil that need?

The answers :
1.One of the roles we need is a versatile back up for our paper thin squad who is capable of playing in a few positions and may be ok with sitting on the bench a while - Yes he fits that
2. Is he good enough for that? I'd argue yes.

Agree9 Disagree3

27 Jun 2017 15:35:09
well i don't agree with ed on this one but appreciate his opinion. would like us to sign him now and see how he does lol. I actually find him really good with the ball and every time i watched him he was danger. Just my opinion.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 15:39:27
Why is noon3 mentioning his injury record

Thats my problem. he's worse than studge.

6 years at arsenal. 129 games btw. If he was going to improve pretty sure he would have.

Hows he going to manage in a hugh pressing team if he can't manage in a possession arsenal team.

Agree3 Disagree5

27 Jun 2017 15:43:26
I'll go on record saying I did not and do not rate gini. He often goes missing, he's not creative, his passing is ok at best and he's not a good tackler. I'm hoping to see him as a sub in the coming seasons. He certainly isn't good enough to be a starter. I watched every game this season and never saw a performance that warranted all the praise he's gotten. He's mediocre at best. Just a body to throw on the field.

Agree0 Disagree20

27 Jun 2017 16:04:40
Ox is not a backup plan to keita. He is seen as a viable squad player who can fill a number of roles. Klopp likes the versatility of ox but not seen as a centre midfielder.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 16:25:18
At best he's squad filler and a square peg in a round hole as he isn't an improvement in centre midfield, because he hasn't the ability to be a top class centre midfielder, you need brains and guile as well as a good engine (which let's face it, Ox's engine would fail its MOT on any given day) . He has has been demonstrated time and again against superior opponents that he simply cannot compete in the position Klopp wants to buy him for, I personally don't like the idea of square pegs in round holes, horses for courses for me (idiom overload there) . We need to be signing players who will improve the starting XI, not just filling the squad with bench fodder, for example Salah improves the starting XI as he is one of the most exciting attacking players in Europe, has bags of pace, is intelligent on the ball and off of it.

Agree2 Disagree4

27 Jun 2017 16:34:38
Fulham, Southampton, and Arsenal. Are there any other clubs that have 'strained relationships' with LFC because they've tasted our special slime? : (.

Agree0 Disagree4

27 Jun 2017 16:42:14
Backup player for £25m? How's this for an idea - spend £25m on a proper left back instead and use our existing English utility midfielder as backup.

Agree8 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 17:05:15
LFCPessimist, Boro, Fiorentina, Stoke, Chelsea at a guess.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2017 17:26:07
Well, my bet is that oir english utility midfielder, filling in at LB, will be filling in at RB come august. This depending on the arrival of a leftfooted LB of course.

I do rate ox as a player and hopefully his injury record will improve now his body has matured . I remember Gerrard getting plenty of injuries at start or his career . I'm not saying that ox will be anywhere near as good as Gerrard but just talking about his fitness . I think a fit ox will get plenty of games and we will need a good squad not just a great starting 11 . We could have 50-60 games to play . I'm sure we have funds still for left back that we desperately need .

LFCOHIO completely disagree about Gini. He keeps our midfield ticking, runs his ass off, contributes goals and assists. This was his first year with the club. What more does he have to show? I feel he will be vital to the club moving forward. Kind of like Lallana, I see Gini improving this year and next.
Just my opinion
Matt in FL.

Taking everything that has been said into account the real question that nobody has asked, is Ox strong enough?

AOC is coming in to cover / compete for a wide forward spot. 50 to 60 games next season and if we're going to be playing 4_3_3, as looks likely, there is no way Mane and Mo are going to be available for all of them. The 3 above and possibly Ojo covering 2 positions means we won't have to keep switching Couts out of the midfield when there's an injury or suspension. Hopefully leading to a more consistent style of play.

Ed1 I feel for you having to reply to this long thread about the same questions lol, imagine if he doesn't even sign and it's all for naught! Xx.

{Ed001's Note - yeah thanks mate I feel so much better now with that thought!}

Hi Ed. News reporting liverpool escaped FA punishment due to lack of evidence. Is this what they erre waiting to hear now they can offically appproach Sfc for Vvd. Do you expect a bid now the tapping up is closed.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, it depends on who you ask as to what answer you get. It seems there are some who expect us to make an official move for him now we are free to do so. Others think that FSG will not allow it after the embarrassment of the apology they forced the club to make. Basically it looks like it will come down to how much power FSG will exert over the running of the club. If they are keeping a tight rein, there will be no bid, if they are letting the club run itself, then we will go back for him.}

27 Jun 2017 09:48:37
Is it true we have escaped fa punishment ed001? Seems like guess work from what I can find?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea.}

If the case ends up officially rested, are there any chance that S'hampton may come out with a apology for LFC to clence the name, or will they still state that Liverpool did them wrong? IMO it would be the right thing to follow through with the VVD deal, if S'hampton allows. For the sake of club, the fans and Virgil. We put him and ourself in a difficult situation with this, we need to seal the deal to swipe it clean.

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Jun 2017 10:57:41
Ed when you say depends who you ask do you mean withing the club there are mixed thoughts, or just fans like me guessing lol?

We should just leave it now imo and not go back in and back on our word.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - within the club I was referring to. Sorry I should have made that clear.}

27 Jun 2017 11:03:35
VVD will end up at Chelsea. We've seen to that. Seeing that Ox was the back up option for centre midfield, I dread to think who the back up option to VVD is.

Agree2 Disagree8

27 Jun 2017 11:53:16
No probs ed sorry mate probably me being dumb lol.

Are you with me in thinking we should now leave it well alone? A TR from the player changes things I guess.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I never wanted us to sign him, so yes, steer well clear.}

27 Jun 2017 12:16:18
I never thought he was good enough either as his flaws are well documented but I think we should just let this one go as well Ed cos the well is poisoned right now even tho, I think we left VVD in limbo and we may need to wipe the slate clean by trying to do a deal. Hard choices really.

Investigation dropped UNLESS new evidence surfaces.
Important to remember this.

Hi Ed's, any idea what the clubs plans are for the likes of Randall, brannagan, steward, chiravella and ojo, do they have any future at the club?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Chrivella and Ojo are most likely to be loaned out, the others are available.}

27 Jun 2017 10:03:47
Thanks ed the your info is appreciated as always.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome.}

27 Jun 2017 14:04:02
Madger Gomez has gone to Leeds and I thought I saw somewhere that Branagan and Randall had new clubs or at least offers.

27 Jun 2017 06:41:41
So who has bid, reading or Liverpool :)

Agree8 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - obviously both. Big move from Reading, shows some real ambition.... ;-)

27 Jun 2017 06:46:08
Reading are about Ox's level!

Agree8 Disagree18

27 Jun 2017 10:25:41
Ed01,you know the way that if a player has an "o" sounding at the end of his name he sounds sexy and the price goes up, if Ox had one, do you think we'd be in a stew?
I'll get my coat.

Agree4 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - groan.}

27 Jun 2017 11:05:50
C'mon you arghRRs!

27 Jun 2017 12:17:26
That will be a major signing for Reading, not for us.
