Hi eds, Just wondering if we had any interest in the young monaco forward mbappe. Also wanted to know what has happened to mark gruic? has he suffered with injury this season, i exepected him to play with the first team or at least be in cup games. He looked good in pre season. Thanks in adavance.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - no idea about Mbappe right now, sorry. Grujic has been injured for most of the season.}

14 Feb 2017 08:42:48
Hi Ed1,

Would the work permit people take that into light when renewing his work permit? (Not sure if it's done yearly in the UK, but it is in the Isle of Man where I am) .

Obviously the game time that was promised as a condition hasn't been met but it'd be interesting to know whether they take in circumstances or just minutes played etc.

Sorry if i've got some of my facts wrong

Thanks!

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - injury is accounted for, yes. They only expect a player to play a percentage of games they are available to play. I don't believe it is a yearly renewal in the UK, though Ed002 would be a better person to ask on that front, as I have to admit I am completely unsure on that.}

14 Feb 2017 08:50:12
Okay, many thanks for the reply.

Fingers crossed he gets fit soon then.

Agree2 Disagree2

16 Feb 2017 10:11:23
It is such a crying shame, Grujic has been struggling with a hamstring injury for months, really holding back his first season of development. Supposedly he should be back in training in early March and I hope everything goes smoothly so he can get back on the pitch before the end of the season.

Mbappe will be the most in demand young player in Europe and will have his pick of the biggest clubs in the world. Real Madrid wanted him before and Zidane knows him well. Liverpool will need Champion's League football to even be in the conversation for the top players in the market. That's why the next 13 games are so crucial to the short-term future of our club and what Klopp is trying to build. If you want the best, top 4 is a must. Either that or chuck hundreds of millions of pounds at them. That seems to work for 'certain' clubs. ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 13:53:00
Was the hands-off warning on Pulisic just in the winter window or does it apply to the summer as well? Thanks.

Agree2 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund don't want to sell him but are aware of interest from several sides including Liverpool. He signed a new contract in January and Dortmund will resist a sale in the summer.}

13 Feb 2017 15:42:57
Ok thanks for the reply.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

13 Feb 2017 19:02:10
I'd imagine we would have to pay over the odds to get him.

Agree3 Disagree3

14 Feb 2017 13:26:59
We would have to pay what they believe he is worth to them same as any other transaction. Whether we feel it's over the odds or not is completely irrelevant.

Agree2 Disagree2

13 Feb 2017 05:49:14
Hey Eds, I know it is early in the season and there are several variables pending which players will leaves. Is there anyone that you think we will be going after our positions that we will address? Thanks Ed.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - bit early really, but right now the most in danger of moving on are Bogdan, Mignolet, Randall, Moreno, Lucas and Sturridge. Mostly depends on incomings though and what offers we receive, plus where and how we finish the season will affect things.}

13 Feb 2017 06:15:45
Cheers Eds, I know it is a bit of a loaded question, but thanks for the info. Does Champions League truly play a huge impact on whether a players decides to come to the club. I would be under the assumption a player would come for the manager and the project at hand. To be apart of the build up to success. Great site Eds, been following for years.

Agree2 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - yes it makes a difference.}

13 Feb 2017 07:18:05
Thanks for the quick response, you guys are great.

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

13 Feb 2017 08:41:22
Does being in the champions league have an impact on how much we negotiate wgaes for potential signings?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - only in terms of having to pay bonuses each match.}

13 Feb 2017 09:14:47
Hello Ed,
Would it be fair to consider stewart, Flanagan, Wisdom, Markovic and Sakho as summer outs in addition to those you mentioned above?
Also do we hold any interest in Tiemone Bakayoko?
He is the only addition that could take our midfield up a few notches and reduce our team conceding stupid counter attack goals.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - not Stewart, but the others yes. Not that I am aware of.}

13 Feb 2017 09:39:46
Ed, are you surprised about Stewart? For someone who's rated he doesn't seem to get much pitch time.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - he will get his chance, he is still learning, we are far too keen to give up on players in this country. He just needs to be patient, his role is one that takes a lot of thought and experience is a massive plus.}

13 Feb 2017 10:42:49
What is a Project, Other than winning trophies in the end? Every club has a project mate. Players have a short career span and they would want to use it fully.

Agree4 Disagree7

13 Feb 2017 17:59:53
Ed I see youve put Sturridge on this list. Is there a real chance he will leave in the summer then? I guess I thought he would stay here forever lol.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - there is a chance, far too early to be sure.}

13 Feb 2017 23:04:25
Bogdan is still on the books ah jaysus!

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Feb 2017 07:54:04
Ah go easy, natural. I'm sorry for the guy getting a serious long-term injury. Would've been nice if he'd had a full loan season and earned a move somewhere to be number 1. Not good enough for Liverpool, obviously, but it's not his fault Brodger signed him, I woulda said yes too! He really must've thought someone was havin a laugh when he got that phone call.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 03:24:18
Spot on about Stewart there Ed.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Feb 2017 14:49:29
Heya Eds! Do you know which left backs Liverpool looking at right now?
Thank you!

Agree4 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - Ricardo Pereira, and interest remains in Josh Tymon. Interest is likely gone in Sead Kolasinac.}

12 Feb 2017 15:23:24
Awesome stuff Ed!
Thanks a lot for that!

Agree4 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

12 Feb 2017 15:52:59
Hi Eds, what is the reason behind interest disappearing on Kolasinac? Isn't his contract expiring and he is from Schalke, I would think and Matip would have a good partnership.

Agree1 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - Kolasinac is not a centre back Harry so I am not sure how Matip enters in to this. He is out of contract in the summer and a number of clubs spoke to Schalke about taking him in January - right now Schalke want him to agree a new contract, particularly given the serious injury to Baba Rahmann (who they had planned on buying in the summer) and the player wants to see what options are available. Whilst he can sign a pre-contract now and there is interest from the likes of Arsenal and Juventus - he will hang on until he can find out what the plans are at Bayern Munich.}

12 Feb 2017 16:58:25
If Bayern are keen on Kolasinac, would it be safe to assume that either Bernat or Alaba would be moving on?

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Yes and there is interest in both.}

12 Feb 2017 17:21:13
Any idea where Bernat or Alaba could be moving on to? Or should I perhaps take this to the European pages?

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing whatsoever to do with Liverpool.}

12 Feb 2017 17:41:48
Fair enough Ed, posted it on the relevant page now :)

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - And it has been answered.}

12 Feb 2017 17:10:38
Isn't Ricardo more prominently a right sided full-back? Just curious as Clyne has apparently made noises about leaving previously. Not to sound old fashioned but I do think left sided players, especially full backs, should ideally be left footed.

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Feb 2017 18:18:40
Hello ed,
What about Tierney the Celtic full back. Have LFC looked at him?
Secondly regarding Ricardo Pereira
Is he the one on loan to buy deal at OG Nice?
Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - (a) No, but other Premier League sides are interested. (b) Porto are keen to sell Ricardo Pereira to raise summer funds and Nice have an option on the player at €25M which they are unlikely to pay. This opens the door for Inter but they already have a lengthy shopping list and he may not be a priority. Liverpool and Arsenal has watched him on more than one occasion whilst on loan at Nice this season.}

12 Feb 2017 18:48:28
Do you rate him ed?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I don't "rate" players.}

12 Feb 2017 21:23:26
I rate him, very good player.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 05:02:03
Hi ed, considering the OP I know this may be a stupid question, but are LFC looking at Pereira as a left or right back? Or both? He's apparently capable in left back but I do know his main position is right back. If he were signed as a left back I just don't know how out-of-position he would be.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - The player can play in either position so he won't be out of position.}

11 Feb 2017 00:23:58
hey eds have we been scouting issa douip of toulouse seeing as it looks like we def need strengthing in the centre back areas.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - No Adam but a couple of English sides had offers rejected in the summer.}

10 Feb 2017 09:36:36
Hi Eds, is there anything in the reports saying we also want Damarai Gray of Leicester in the summer? He looked good for Leicester the other night, maybe one for the future!

Agree2 Disagree7

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of any approach and if Liverpool would see Damarai Gray as "one for the future" then why would he move?}

10 Feb 2017 13:48:05
We looked at him in the past I guess and decided not to move for him. He is playing regularly at Leicester. I would rather buy one top class experienced than another Potential.

Agree5 Disagree2

07 Feb 2017 08:06:23
Ben bereton being linked from Forrest. Face competition from united and Chelsea apparently. What do the eds think?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - looks a good young talent, not sure he is what we need though.}

07 Feb 2017 10:55:17
Another striker lol, That too young over the top of already younger Origi and Ings.

Agree2 Disagree5

07 Feb 2017 13:03:28
It b for the academy Harry.

Agree1 Disagree3

09 Feb 2017 07:40:22
Pointless, let the lad develop where he is instead of wasting his time in our academy.

Agree3 Disagree2

09 Feb 2017 19:03:54
I tend to agree that he's not what we need in the first team right now. However, at 17, he's going to go into the academy for the next few years. Who's to say that he's not needed there? Do we have the next wave of strikers, ones who are looking at 2019/ 20 or so as a breakthrough season, already in the Academy?

And Harry, FYI, Bereton at 17 is much younger than Origi (21) and Ings (24) so his recruitment is nothing to do with them.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2017 10:21:02
We have too many academy strikers. So many we just sent Brooks Lennon on loan so we could bring Brewster through sooner. Brewster is already breaking into the U21's and McAuley is scoring for fun in the U18's. Both are 17/ 18 years old. Brereton is really not needed. Academy or first team.

Agree5 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 06:59:48
Do we hold any interest in swanseas gylfi sigurdsson?

I have seen him pretty much carry swansea and with the goals he offers i can't help thinking he would be a good addition to the Liverpool squad.

Agree2 Disagree5

{Ed001's Note - not since he returned there. He didn't enjoy being in a higher pressure environment.}

07 Feb 2017 15:10:15
But relegation pressure is fine? Lulz.

Agree0 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - totally different kind of pressure. Less media focus for starters.}

07 Feb 2017 21:12:35
Thanks Ed. Good point.
Personally I'd like to see him get a another chance at a big club.

Agree0 Disagree2

05 Feb 2017 21:21:55
Evening, don't know if you have already seen but what do you make of the alleged leaked emails of John W Henry? Cheers.

Agree1 Disagree4

06 Feb 2017 03:26:30
Nothing at all - they talk about the club being available for a steal, but that's not a steal from the fans. it's simply referring to the ability to buy it cheap from G&H because they were in trouble after running the place into the ground. Why should we care if they thought the price was a steal from those grubs?

They also rightly point out the value in the name and brand, the fact it hasn't previously been making any money from the international fans/ website, and explicitly mentions investing in the stadium and bringing in the best and brightest to run the club.

The references to administration and docking points were that it was unpalatable and that they liked the Liverpool team after they met them. nothing in those mails points to anything other than the view Liverpool was an attractive opportunity and available on the cheap because it underinvested in before. We all knew that at the time.

Agree51 Disagree2

06 Feb 2017 12:35:41
Good post zimbo. Sick to death of the owner bashing on here and online etc. people need to wake up and grow up. Fsg have pumped millions into the club and klopp also had funds available which he decided not to use. 3 points against spurs please YNWA.

Agree37 Disagree2

06 Feb 2017 16:31:57
Two of the best posts I've read in a while and I thank you both .

Agree14 Disagree0

07 Feb 2017 17:05:40
Spot on, boys. Nothing to see here, per emails. Just nothing-burger for their haters to have a bite at. When LFC is struggling and the moaners can't slate Klopp or the players, they default position is to attack the owners. Why? They are easy targets and it's not like they can defend themselves, can they?

Agree6 Disagree0

05 Feb 2017 19:10:17
Any truth about Leeds interested in signing Ward? if so is there any chance we'd sell? - Really hope not, I want to see more of this kid next season.

Agree2 Disagree2
