Eds, heard a couple of rumors we are monitoring Jamie Vardy, along with Dortmund.

What are you thoughts on the validity of this, and your opinions on him as a player?

Personally I think we would need to see him perform as he has been over a full season. Does look like he will get 20+ goals though which cannot be sniffed at.

Beavun

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, I can't help.}

The thing with buying british is the price is massively inflated.

In all honesty I don't think we need to look at a striker with benteke, sturridge and ings when fit.

Question for Ed01

Are we looking to offload Sturridge given his constant injury problems and high wages?

It has to come to a point where you feel he is never going to get a run in the side. Shame as he is up there as one of the leagues best.

Beavun

{Ed001's Note - not yet, the decision has not been made to offload him, but there is a month at least to assess the squad before Klopp can make that kind of decision.}

Question for Ed01.
Which players in the U-23s or academy are considered the strongest prospects we should look out for next season and beyond?

Thanks.

Beavun

{Ed001's Note - Jordan Williams, Juanma, Bobby Adekanye, Paulo Alves, Madger Gomes, Toni Gomes, Brooks Lennon and Yan Dhanda on a quick glimpse at the squad. Though it changes very quickly at that age and most of the standouts have already had chances this season. I have omitted those from the list, as I am assuming you already know about Wilson, Woodburn et al.}


1.) 22 Feb 2017 15:45:24
Ed is Williams seen as a midfield prospect or a centre back?

Always preferred him in a holding midfield role myself. His ability on the ball is wasted in defence.

{Ed001's Note - I was told he is seen as a midfielder. Personally I agree with you, I would not be surprised if he threatened Stewart's place in the first team squad by the end of this season. So long as he stays fit.}


2.) 22 Feb 2017 16:17:31
What about Wilson ed001? I always liked him although i have not been able to watch much of the academy recently.

{Ed001's Note - did you not read what I put mate? Wilson has got a look in with the first team so no point mentioning him.}


3.) 22 Feb 2017 18:23:04
Cheers Ed, wow had no idea he was progressing that well! I saw he was playing well but if he can start knocking on the door for the first team then great.

Reason why i like him in a holding role is he can play it like Hendo does. He is good in the tackle and reads the game well, but he has a sublime passing range. Stewart is more of an all out destroyer when he plays the holding role, (he is probably slightly better running on the ball than Hendo or Williams though) as his lack of passing range makes us slower to switch play. That is the key difference for me; Stewart will put in a crunching tackle then carry it forward, whilst Williams and Hendo will slow the attackers down and show them into less dangerous areas, then use their passing range to spring a counter attack when we win it back as a team. Stewarts style looks awesome but it is risky as missing the tackle can either take you out the game, or get you booked.

Both good players in their own right, but Williams could offer genuine like for like cover/ conpetition for Henderson.

I really would love Stewart to get a chance at left back if Williams does take his place. Stewart primarily came through the system playing on the flanks; either full back or wide midfielder. He could potentially solve our left back issue if he has no future here as a centre mid! If not, i would rather have Stewart as our utility player than James Milner.

I honestly thought Williams was out of sight out of mind after his loans in recent years. Great to hear this Ed, thanks!

{Ed001's Note - he was always very highly rated, it was injuries that held him back. Beale certainly liked him a lot when he was at the club.}


4.) 22 Feb 2017 19:47:10
In a similar way, Ed001, do you see any of our 12 loanees being brought back in with a view of being given a shot at the first team for next year? Or do you expect most to be moved on? (sorry if it's been asked already) . Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - most will leave mate. Though the likes of Ward should stay, it is up to them to prove themselves ready for a step up.}


5.) 22 Feb 2017 20:13:12
Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}


6.) 22 Feb 2017 20:38:28
Academy products are like throwing skittles on a table. A few might stay up but the rest will scatter around.

But just because there not at liverpool doesn't mean they qont forge greay careers.

Just don't follow them in my opinion because you will just send yourself crazy. Sit back and wait to see who comes through.

You could literally watch the youth all over and each and every week there will be a stand out perfromance and you will want them to be giving a shot.

Its just lunacy to think we could produce 7/ 8 players from all the age groups consitently year on year for the first team.


7.) 22 Feb 2017 21:58:13
Conor masterson got a name check off klopp last week is he any good eds.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen much of him to be honest. I was just mentioning the names I had heard spoken about by opposing coaches and our coaches. It does tend to end up forward-heavy, as they are the players that get noticed, and Masterson is a defensive player.}


8.) 23 Feb 2017 03:18:17
Yan Dhanda has really impressed me this year - invariably stands out in the academy matches and if he keeps working hard (and stays injury free), I reckon he will make a career out of footy.


9.) 23 Feb 2017 11:28:54
More then half of em won't make it.

What do you reckon of Jack Dunns chances?


 

 

10 Jun 2016 16:14:05
Hi Ed02,

We often hear about LFC paying high agency fees, and I saw a league table recently where we were 1st or 2nd in the EPL.

I wondered what are the main factors which lead to higher/ lower agency fees?

Cheers.

Beavun

{Ed002's Note - Overpaying for players (e.g. Firmino and Aquilani), buying "marquee" players to please the fans (e.g. Benteke), buying players with multiple agents and representatives (e.g. Balotelli), buying lots of players (hence the bloated squad), not negotiating fixed fees as well as is possible, using "agents" to organise transfers etc..}


1.) 10 Jun 2016 23:30:07
Love to know why Bernie? Ed02? He is a bit too left wing for me, It has been very Interesting watching the Primaries over here. I am still Baffled why 14m Americans have voted for Trump!

So who is everybody's tip for the Euro's? I think Germany, although France not far behind.

{Ed002's Note - It is more of being the best of a bad bunch RedinCa. I grew up with Reagan as Governor of CA so I recall those Republican days well.}


2.) 11 Jun 2016 01:30:31
It's time that when a player wants to leave or join a club they should pay agents fees, when a club wants a player out they stump up, also eds when renegotiating contracts who pays the agents then, surely it's the player? Thanks eds in advance.


 

 

08 Jan 2016 12:45:08
Eds, at the risk of being crucified, I am going to ask whether you know anything about a rumor that came out from Bild and Paul Joyce at the Express.

"Klopp's number one transfer target in the summer will be Mario Gozte"

Can you see any truth in it? Given his mere squad role at Bayern do you think he could be pursued?

Thanks.

Beavun

{Ed002's Note - There has been no interest from Liverpool.}

Morning Eds, I wondered if either of you could explain where our main international fan base markets are, where do we do we compare well with Europe's top clubs, and which markets are we planning on focusing on in the coming years?

Beavun

{Ed002's Note - For a while now the stats for fans are based, as you would expect, on the number of fans on social media and that helps provide the demographics for where those fans are based. Top 10 at the last time of asking found Liverpool at number 7 ahead of PSG, Manchester City and AC Milan. Liverpool were just behind Bayern Munich, with Arsenal and Chelsea ahead of them. There was then a significant leap to Manchester United, Real Madrid and, at number 1, Barcelona.

In terms of the demographics for the five Premier League clubs:

Manchester United has the most supporters in both India and China - and given the size of population in those countries it is not a surprise to see them so far ahead.

Chelsea are the club with the most supporters most in mainland Europe, Asia, Middle East, Central America and South America.

Arsenal are the most followed Premier League club in Canada and the USA and, very significantly, throughout Africa (except South Africa).

Liverpool has the highest number of supporters of any club in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and is doing well in some parts of Asia.

Manchester City are not leading the way in any one market but are picking up new supporters faster than any other side. This is a reflection of their success.

Liverpool have not, as far as I know, made any announcement for a post-season tour or pre-season tour for this coming Summer. With the Euros happening, anything post-season will possibly be limited to perhaps a high-earning match or two utilising only those players not involved in the Euros. Pre-season, all I can say is I know that enquiries were being made to see what could be done in the United States and perhaps Canada - but I am not aware of anything firm just yet.}


1.) 17 Nov 2015 12:35:38
I recently lived in Singapore for a couple of years. In terms of replica kits, supporters watching in local bars and general conversations and anecdotes, two clubs stood out, both in terms of Singaporean supporters and supporters in the international expat community. No surprises, I guess, that it was Liverpool and Manchester Utd. You would also see a lot of Bayern shirts, although mainly worn by Westerners (primarily Germans I assume) rather than locals.

There was also a Newcastle supporters club based at one of the city centre bars. Always packed in there on match night.


2.) 17 Nov 2015 13:26:42
Thanks Ed02 for that, really interesting.

I see your point that it is crucial that Arsenal have the best support in Africa. Whilst everyone seems to talk about the USA as a main market to grow the fan base, Africa has improved drastically from an economic perspective over the last 15 years, and this all leads to improvements in their ability to follow the premier league through TV and social media.

Whilst USA clearly already has all the necessary infrastructure for fans to be introduced, they have other very established national sports. Africa favors football.

Looking very long-term, Africa is the main area in the world that will actually grow in population during this century. It currently has 1 billion, but will grow to 2 billion by 2050, and 4 billion by 2100 (approximate numbers) . Asia in comparison has 4 billion currently and this will only increase to 5 billion by 2100.


3.) 17 Nov 2015 14:50:36
Wirh regards to Manchester United I think they do a fantastic job in asian countries. Of Course their success in recent years has helped and they have capitalized on that. You can see a Manchester United club shop in the smallest of towns. Liverpool i believe lack in this area.

Question for Eds.

I am asking for an opinion here, I do not expect you guys to know everything!
If Klopp and Anchelotti do not end up at Anfield, what do you think are their other serious options? i.e clubs that have, or will potentially have availability before, or by the end of this season.
I am currently struggling to think of many options. I think that IF city fail to win the league or progress well in the CL then Pello will leave. I also think that if Arsenal either do incredibly well or badly, Wenger could go.
Klopp has said he would only manage in England or Germany, so I guess for him that leaves Bayern. I don't see Pep leaving until he wins the CL or City make him an offer he can't refuse.
I guess Ancholotti could end up in Italy, but not sure who with specifically.

Thanks

Beavun

{Ed002's Note - For various reasons both have been in England this week and Ancelotti remains here for a couple more days. As I have explained before, there was an effort earlier this year by a third party to steer Ancelotti toward Manchester but he wanted to take a year off, deal with a medical issue and another matter. He is not looking for work but I expect he will probably be approached by Roma. Liverpool has not made any approach to Klopp (who has now turned down four coaching positions since the season started) at this time. One option that Klopp has will be clarified by the end of November and that will influence what he does next. There is a chance that a managerial option will open up elsewhere in England and, under the correct circumstances, that may be an option for him and Zeljko Buvac. I am not so sure those circumstances will be right for them.}


1.) 02 Oct 2015 13:27:09
I am surprised Rudi Garcia is under so much pressure at Roma. He has surely taken them a level up since he has joined, but they have struggled in Europe I suppose.


2.) 02 Oct 2015 13:46:15
Is Ancelotti in England doing something with the upcoming charity match with Ferguson taking charge of United? Sure that's happening pretty soon

{Ed002's Note - That match is not until November.}


3.) 02 Oct 2015 14:54:05
Thank you for your reply.
I can see what you're saying re Ancelotti - there are tangible reasons for him having to wait until the end of the season to get back into work, along with what sounds like a private matter.

Do you think if the LFC job came available by say mid-Oct, could Klopp seriously pass up the opportunity to manage us on the chance something else could be assured by mid-November? I guess it depends on how much more attractive it is than LFC.

If its Bayern, or Arsenal, I can perhaps see the logic there.

However, I look at the German and English leagues and it seems like LFC are the obvious fit for Klopp, who is not looking to join a top top club, but also would surely not accept a step down from Dortmund.


4.) 02 Oct 2015 15:07:28
I am guessing you Pep will decide whether he wants to renew his contract at Bayern by mid-November.

Interesting, well I still think it would be surprising seeing Klopp at Bayern - he thrived with the underdog tag, and always spoke with contempt about Bayern who consistently bought all of his most promising players.

I guess this now hinges a lot on City's form, if Pellegrini ends up under serious pressure from a collapse in CL and PL form, Pep may fancy it. Having said that I reckon City's owners would sack Pellegrini no matter what happens if Pep was available. He is their L-T target.

Praying for Sturridge in particular, his pace would be particularly difficult prospect for Chelsea's ageing defense. Zouma can't even fill in for Cahill/Terry at CB as he is needed a RB.

I think it works in our favor its at SB too. They will have to play on the front foot, and they are useless at defending counters. The crowd could get on their backs too.

Looking forward to this one.

Definitely one of those two positions you mentioned, CB or CDM.

Lucas is surprisingly dependable although you can't help but feel the teamsheet would look so much stronger with a world-class player at CDM, and Lucas is our only player that can genuinely play there. We can't have Hendo, Milner and Can playing at CM at the same time, not enough balance or quality I am afraid.

Lovren and Skertle are both liabilities, but I feel that Lovren is worth (another) go alongside Sahko despite them both being left-sided. He is a fairly young player and may do a lot better under Klopp and next to a capable CB like Sahko.

I am gunna say CDM, but that must be matched with the sale of Allen, and inevitably Milner being pushed out wide.

I really want us to avoid emotional decisions here. I don't get any impression from Fowler when I hear him speaking in interviews that he is management material. Goal scoring legend all the same.

This statement may annoy a lot of fans, but I think the likes of Sami Hyypia would be a much better option as backroom staff. He has actually managed a variety of teams, and was a club captain so has leadership qualities.

I think United employing Giggs as manager post Van-Gaal might end up being an absolute disaster, or a modest success - either way its a risk I want them to take, not us.
