mahmoud-dahoud is not forgotten! It's possible to Lfc. I think 2or3 ins. Quite window so far tho

Agree0 Disagree16

I don't think we will sign anyone and Klopp is planning for the summer.

Agree10 Disagree0

20 Jan 2017 00:35:48
i would be amazed if we sign one this January, no chance 2/ 3 are coming in. Dahoud is one for the Summer I'd presume.

Agree9 Disagree2

20 Jan 2017 02:13:05
What about Leon Bailey?

Agree0 Disagree5

20 Jan 2017 07:49:51
Without reading anything from the Eds, I think if we make any signings it will be younger players for the future to go into the academy or we'll not go in for anyone.

It would be a surprise to see an expensive first team signing arrive.

Agree5 Disagree2

20 Jan 2017 10:06:26
Plan for the summer which'll be a challenge again particularly with Coutinho and Firmino maybe leaving among others

Agree1 Disagree7

20 Jan 2017 12:28:35
We will have plenty of cash to spend then if them 2 leave .

Hey Ed's/ Reds

A few sites reporting Liverpool interest in Leon Bailey a 23 year old Jamaican from Genk. The report I read mentions a loan back for the rest of the season would be likely as he had been considered a target the summer and not ready for the first team just yet. but due to interest from a couple of others this window (Bayern Lever and Roma) Liverpool would be prepared to bid 20m this window.

Firstly is there any interest from us?

Secondly does anyone know much about him can't say I do at all so any opinions welcome.


Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Genk's Leon Bailey is continuing to attract the attention of a number of sides, particularly those from England who would like a deal before the opportunity for him become home grown disappear. He has previously opted to turn down Chelsea for Genk where he knew opportunities would be better. Bayer Leverkusen, Lille, Newcastle, Ajax, Roma, Crystal Palace, Manchester United and Napoli have all watched him recently and Napoli have had a couple of discussions with Genk with one of his representatives available to discuss the views of the player. Efforts are being made by a sports agency to ease out the representatives he has now and this has irked his father who plays an important part of the decision making process and is concerned the player could slip in to obscurity if he moves too early. Folks have asked about Everton and Liverpool interest but there seems to be nothing of note. Right now he is not ready for the EPL, so a loan would be likely if he were to move to England but I don't see any chance of a January move - perhaps one to ask about again in the summer.}

19 Jan 2017 23:12:33
Seen him play live once against my hometown club in the europa league this season, he's direct, extremely quick and his footwork is mesmerising. His end product is lacking but at only 19 this can easily be improved. Also his passing is underrated, he's quite a technical player which can easily be overshadowed due to his obvious physical attributes.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 22:25:28
Thanks Ed and apologies I used the serch function after I posted. My bad

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 17:54:40
Just inquiring about speculation surrounding Geoffrey Kondogbia? Probably recycled BS, there is a lot of websites claiming Liverpool are interested in the player, he has huge potential and his career seems to have stalled at Inter!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2017 04:05:22
This is an old rumour but it is probably worth noting that Kondogbia is far from easy to deal and seems to cause disruption with regularity - one I hope we steer clear of.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 10:06:42
Eds it seems very quiete on the GENUINE transfer news re left back lcb and left winger- in my opinion the position s we really need to add to. Ilori gone sakho goingso cb quality needed along side matip. milner doing well at lb but would be available for midfield if a lb signed. And we've seen the impact mane has made someone on the left side with similar impact would be great news. Any eds have anything? Or do you really think no signings in January? Thanks for all you do.

Agree5 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Why would Liverpool buy a centreback to replace two who were not in the first team squad Stevie? I remain of the opinion that if the right player were available at the right price something can be done - but I am sure the club will not look to knee jerk purchases and I am sure Klopp realises that it is not the time to rock the boat and disrupt a team doing pretty well.

As for left back - looking for a pre-contract with Sead Kolasinac is not out of the question as has been previously explained.}

19 Jan 2017 10:36:43
New CB - Gomez. New LB - Juanma

Agree11 Disagree5

19 Jan 2017 11:21:39
Cheers ed. Re cb not just sakho and ilori leaving ed- in my opinion lovren and klavan not good enough and gomez inexperinced. I would go for someone - as said before- even short term eg fonte- that helpslto win the prem. Just my opinion. Thanks ed

Agree5 Disagree7

{Ed002's Note - So basically you have no time for any of the Liverpool centre backs except Matip. If Liverpool are to sell Gomez, Klaven or Lovren this month then it makes sense to get another centre back in.}

19 Jan 2017 14:49:13
C'mon ed002, now we have been named as the 9th richest club we can afford a few £80-90 million transfers, yeah? I'd say 9 new first team centre backs is a priority.

Agree0 Disagree7

19 Jan 2017 15:58:19
I didn't say gomez wasnt good enough. I don't rate lovren or klavan as good enough. As for sarcastic remarks- tristan- i Certainly wasnt suggesting aby great expendiure at cb as i said someone short term to help win the prem. It seems people aren't allowed an opinion! !

Agree6 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not the 9th richest club.}

19 Jan 2017 19:31:31
The opinion on lovren / klavan is fine but your logic around recruiting isnt.
Lovren and klavan are doing a decent enough job for us. As it stands, we would only bring in a CB if we were selling one. So if that is the case, can we even do that sort of business in January that would bring about the definite succeed you crave? Cos any transfer like that would have to deliver the title this season otherwise it is a failure and a monumentus waste of time and money

Agree0 Disagree5

19 Jan 2017 20:21:26
9th in the list of turn over for the year.
Are we carrying much debt now Ed?
I suppose the new stand and Brendan Rodgers still
have to be paid for.

Are we financially in good shape compared with the other top 6 prem clubs?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You cannot equate the two. Turnover for one year in 9th place does not make anyone the 9th richest. Liverpool are in good shape but have significant debts to address. If the current ownership were to look to Phase 2 of the stadium they would be stupid (quite honestly). In the big scheme of things the increased media money is a massive plus and Liverpool are in decent shape.}

19 Jan 2017 20:33:37
Really! Definate success? I didn't say it would definetly give us the title. I said i help it! As i said my opinion.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 00:09:54
Financially, why can't we be as shrewd as Chelsea to sell players we don't want at premium price to China?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed007's Note - The player's aren't good enough, or maybe high profile enough, to attract those kind of bids.}

20 Jan 2017 11:26:12
Ed's right, we're not the 9th richest. According to Forbes, we're 8th.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jan 2017 14:15:10
Leekuanyew, it's really not as simple as that. I'm sure they would give us oodles of cash for our top players, but who would you sell? There's nobody I'd want to lose from the current 1st team.
Sakho perhaps? A cool 20 mil for him would be nice, but I don't think he fancies China just yet.
Sure, certain players like Lovren or Moreno could be replaced with upgrades if somebody paid us over the odds for them, but I don't see that happening either. It's a certain profile of player that they want in China, but we don't have mercenaries like Oscar, Witsel, Hulk or Tevez for example. Perhaps only Sturridge would make any sense, and sure enough, if we got a whopper offer, I'd sell.

Agree0 Disagree1

Just like to wish xabi all the best after he retires he should never have left and I hope he get some sort of role at Liverpool even an embassador met him once and one of the most down to earth blokes you will ever meet good luck in whatever comes next

Agree26 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 06:33:36
one of the greatest players ever to have played for Liverpool fc, easily one of rafa's best signings, he made everbody around him better players and that includes gerrard, to have tried to replace him with gareth barry was sheer lunacy, my favourite memory, THAT goal vs Newcastle and how he quickly reacted to his penalty being saved in instanbul, he then went on to play for real Madrid and of course Bayern munich, which shows how much quality the man has, one of the true greats on and off the pitch. YNWA XABI ALONSO.

Agree18 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 22:19:10
What muppet gave that a thumbs down he truly was a Liverpool legend

Agree4 Disagree1

18 Jan 2017 10:00:23
Ed002 can you remember that Serbian winger Liverpool signed for £20m a couple years back, meant to be one of the hottest prospects around at the time, Lazar Markovic? Will he ever be given a chance or will he just be rotting away out on loan in the primera liga? Cheers eds

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will look to sell Markovic in the summer - there remains a residual issue which would mean that some clubs would not be interested but I have no doubt that the player and those folks who represent and have an interest in him will be happy to look for a permanent home so he can get his career back on track.}

18 Jan 2017 13:21:27
I feel so sorry for the poor lad, terrible move for club and player. I hope wherever he goes he can get back on track

Agree23 Disagree1

18 Jan 2017 23:29:45
A higher profile, long haired version of Illori. Career instantly stopped as soon as he signed for Liverpool. What if ay.

Agree0 Disagree3

18 Jan 2017 23:59:12
Good luck to Lori on joining Reading.
His coach will be Jap Stam.

I hope he can get the best out of the lad as he was top centre half.

Agree4 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 02:19:29
4 games 2 goals from set pieces not good enough i can't believe were not going to improve our squad. top 4 probably but a great opportunity to win the league.

Evening Standard reporting that Liverpool have had a £32.5 million bid for Raul Jimenez rejected by Benfica hoping interest will drive the price up. Gonçalo Lopes reporting. Just passing it on guys.

Agree1 Disagree10

16 Jan 2017 20:38:40
If this is true, Jurgen must have hit the bottle after the Utd match. £32.5 mil!

Agree4 Disagree3

16 Jan 2017 21:13:22
Never heard of him TBH but a quick bit of research suggests some Chinese interest - I guess he'll end up there. Oh, and his scoring record isn't that great for a €32m striker either.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Jan 2017 21:33:17
MK had a review about the player couple of weeks ago when he was first linked to us by papers. Ed02 trashed this rumor as an old story being recycled ( Think we looked at him during Brendan regime )
MK claims he is exciting and a good striker who has pace in abundance and clinical up front. Benfica don't sell cheap and th price quoted in the OP us way less.

Agree3 Disagree2

16 Jan 2017 22:49:22
SPARTAK MOSCOW sign luis Adriano from AC MILAN, is there something happening that we don't know about, that's two forwards they've signed recently. any news EDDS.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - I have already explained it all on the Spartak Moscow page - this is the Liverpool page. Ask me there.]

17 Jan 2017 10:22:16
Wheres the spartak page ed?

Happy to trust Kloppo. Recruitment has definitely improved 🙂

Agree4 Disagree1

18 Jan 2017 13:14:50
Just to clarify I never said he had pace in abundance haha. He is no slouch, but he is also not going to be going past Mane in training drills! I'd say he is more Henderson's ball park in terms of pace! Quick, but not renowned for it.

His key attributes are creativity, hold up play, aerial threat and poaching goals. He is also a good PK taker. His creativity means he can play out wide if required, particularly from the left cutting inside onto his right foot.

I'll concede his goal scoring record looks average on the face of it, but this is the kind of striker who as a rule tend to come into their prime around 27 years old, not a pacey Torres/ Owen kind who look finished by 27 years old! There is a clear upward curve in his recent seasons and I have been an admirer for a lot of seasons! £30m would be daylight robbery in todays market, in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree2

18 Jan 2017 13:33:49
Just to elaborate on his goal scoring record, if you look at his time in Spain you will quickly see he only scored once. The thing is though he only played about 600 minutes across around 20 substitute appearances whilst still being very young.

Since moving to Portugal, if you simply evaluate his league and Champions league form, he has 14 goals and 6 assists in roughly 2000 minutes of football. Or otherwise, a goal/ assist every 100 minutes. Only player in our squad who has ever posted figures like that is Sturridge. And 4 goals and 3 assists in the Champions league is probably more than our entire frontline has in their career. In fact if you take out Milner, it is probably more than our entire starting XI!

This is a forward who has proven he can score in high pressure situations, even if he isn't in the team every week. That makes him a very valuable asset to any squad; especially a team hoping to have a successful CL campaign next year. At 25 years old, his best is yet to come!

Agree0 Disagree3

18 Jan 2017 16:42:49
Good research MK but still sounds too much money for a striker with an average goalscoring ratio and zero PL experience. I'm still giving him a miss.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Jan 2017 16:57:03
Liverpool have rejected a loan offer for Ojo from New castle. Either he is playing a part or it's a stupid move not to send the player for some game time. Newcastle have a good manager as well some decent player.
This loan would make him ready for next season.
But what do I know!

Agree5 Disagree18

16 Jan 2017 17:32:19
He showed last season he can play in our first team, give him a couple more weeks and he'll be a regular off the bench and a cup starter, he's valuable with us.

Agree8 Disagree2

16 Jan 2017 18:02:43
Hi Harry,

It would depend on how Newcastle planned to use him. If he isn't going to start the majority of games then it's a wasted loan mate. Not sure who their wingers are but think one is Matt Ritchie who he wouldn't start over I think.

Just throwing a different perspective on things!

He isn't playing here either 87 red. Rafa might play him there as the Championship is tight this time.

Agree3 Disagree4

16 Jan 2017 19:45:17
Why is it a stupid move? He's only just match fit and back from injury. The only injury Newcastle have in Ojos position is Rolando Aarons who has been out for an age.

Chelsea loaned Newcastle Atsu and he can't get a real game for them and he plays in those forward areas, Ayoze Perez and Mitrovic aren't regulars for Newcastle. Where is the guarantee Ojo would get on the pitch?

Agree6 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 21:34:32

I have heard we only loan players on guarantees mate. I can't see the kid playing a lot with us this season. Newcastle is a better team in the championship than most others.

Agree2 Disagree6

17 Jan 2017 01:57:45
Klopp has his own plans. What do you know exactly

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 11:03:25
That newcqstle team are playing well, doubt ojo would command a starting spot which us what you'd want if sending him on loan at this time of year surely

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 14:07:06
We play a diffrent system to them, the kid is not even sharp yet, imagine how badly his confidence will take a dip should this not work, rather keep him around so he can at least fully recover.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2017 13:05:24
Do you not think maybe you have answered your own question harry Newcastle perhaps could not give guarantees on playing time hence we rejected the loan

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 16:12:14
FIFA says that Matip's eligibility for LFC is being investigated by their disciplinary committee. No time frame given.

This is beyond joke now.

Agree18 Disagree1

19 Jan 2017 09:17:35
I don't get all this, if the lad doesn't want to play for them he doesn't want to play for them, players retire from international duty some of them well premature if you ask me to concentrate on their club careers so what's the difference? have they just "done their time" so allowed to say they don't want to play?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2017 23:02:40
Liverpool want to bolster their defence with Southampton defender Jose Fonte. Mamadou Sakho may be used as part of the deal. [Mirror] #LFC. Surely this is not true

Agree4 Disagree37

15 Jan 2017 07:59:52
As a Sharkopod listener, and a listener to other teams not just our own, I'll say that Fonte (given what was said in the United Sharkopod) is more or less nailed on to join them. That is where he wants to go, that is where the strongest interest lies and also where the largest transfer fee for Southampton lies - he won't be going to us.

Oh, and to add to this, Ed002 in particular has made the situation about Sakho very clear: he wants to go to a top tier club - that rules out Southmapton. Our financial demands are also quite high which would also rule out Southampton. I'd ignore everything in the papers - they don't write the truth, they write stories to try and facilitate sales - take it (both sports news and general news) with a massive pinch of salt!

Agree17 Disagree3

15 Jan 2017 11:56:57
Funny how that rumour was on here and then appears on the mirror, we must be the mirrors sources lol

Agree3 Disagree2

15 Jan 2017 13:07:52
Mikey, as I pushed it a couple of days ago (to a bit of ridicule) I'm quite happy to wait for my royalty cheque from the Mirror, lol!

Agree4 Disagree2

15 Jan 2017 14:34:49
Sky just said no interest. Like the eds said all along.
