Have we ever shown an interest in Gnarby of arsenal, was injured last season but the guy looks like he'll be top quality.


{Ed001's Note - none that I know of.}



11 Jun 2015 23:41:55
Think u lot are forgetting that QPR get a % of the sterling money.
If he's sold for $50m Liverpool would only bank roughly $38m with the rest going to QPR.
So no way are they gunna sell for 25/30m.


{Ed002's Note - Complex, the threat of Webster and no sale this summer makes him worth perhaps £8M in January.}

1.) 12 Jun 2015 01:35:39
He's got two years left on his contract. So not this January but next yeah 8m.

{Ed001's Note - no this January, or he would be going for nothing. Do you not understand? Only you seem to be getting it all wrong, clearly not understanding that next summer he can just go under the Webster ruling.}

2.) 12 Jun 2015 03:23:15
The club better not act proud and hold on to him, resulting in selling at a loss. I know you've worked around this question before Ed001, but do Liverpool have a specific player in mind if Sterling leaves or are their targets independent of what happens with him? In other words I'm seriously hoping Konoplyanka isn't the standard were setting as replacement

{Ed001's Note - it is not Konoplyanka, the possibilities, such as Cheryshev, have been mentioned before.}

3.) 12 Jun 2015 07:08:48
Think Ed02 is pulling your leg at £8m in January - if he's in demand the we'd still get a good fee.

Not that we would let his contract run down but we'd still get a fee due to his age.

That said I think we should sell and if we are going to get upward on £30m then we have to.

{Ed001's Note - there is no leg pulling, Aidy Ward has made it plain the Webster ruling is a very real possibility.}

4.) 12 Jun 2015 07:13:06
very true edd add to the fact he is not worth it with the baggage and wages that will come with him but it is a buyers market and even thou city could buy the finished article for less money i am pretty sure they need to reinforce there english quota for europe which might bump the price up ,could be wrong?

{Ed001's Note - they could just look elsewhere by then, Redmond would do the same, Demarai Gray too. They have looked at both.}

5.) 12 Jun 2015 07:25:23
I think we should 100% sell the lad.

He doesn't want to be here, it's the right thing to do. Get the best price possible and move on.

Still think we get more that £8m in Jan though :-)

{Ed001's Note - when his career is in nosedive, you expect his value not to nosedive too?}

6.) 12 Jun 2015 07:25:23
I think we should 100% sell the lad.

He points to the more recent cases of Brazilian midfielder Matuzalem’s protracted transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk to Real Zaragoza and goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis’s abrupt departure from Udinese to join Sevilla, both in the summer of 2007.

"In those cases compensation wasn’t a calculation of the remaining proportion of the wages that should be covered, it was of the actual harm the club suffered," Geey adds. "In the case of De Sanctis it was the replacement cost for Udinese to buy a goalkeeper of similar standing, and in the end the cost of two was included in the calculation."

Ed's is this true? if so, surely it won't be so bad and we should not be so desparate to sell?

{Ed002's Note - The Liverpool fans significantly over-price their players. I am not sure what the going price is for a naïve twenty year old winger who is still developing and has yet to hone his end product.}

8.) 12 Jun 2015 10:25:26
We over value players? He did come in 3rd expensive player in a recent survey didn't he? Something like £60m I know that's over valued but surely we'd get much more than £8m

{Ed001's Note - in a recent survey? Oh please, have you listened to yourself? This is getting more idiotic by the day.}

9.) 12 Jun 2015 11:52:02
Surely just a matter of time so until the club's agree a common ground on the fee and this one goes through ed??. think the club and raheems agent have absolutely handled this shockingly. the kid is a super footballer and we are definitely missing a trick on this one in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - considering how little interest there is in him from elsewhere, it would be a surprise if a deal was not agreed in time.}

10.) 12 Jun 2015 13:56:24
Personally I'd settle for £30m upfront plus £5-10m add on for Man City winning League Title and/or CL within 2 years.

I think that is fair (actually I think it would be a right result) as I totally agree with Ed002'S assessment of his current abilities. I actually think we would be getting a £10-15m bump in his true value, because he is English.



08 Jun 2015 17:14:38
Some reports in the last 5mins saying Southampton may buy back lallana for 22m


1.) 08 Jun 2015 17:29:53
Twitter ?

2.) 08 Jun 2015 18:33:55
The Kovacic signing only makes sense if someone goes - although I like llallana he would be the one to make way.

3.) 08 Jun 2015 18:39:25
This, makes absolutely no sense lol.

4.) 08 Jun 2015 18:54:09
A joke.

5.) 08 Jun 2015 18:57:54
It does because despite being on of my favorite players to watch, he was just not needed at all.

If he went and kovacic came in then that would be perfect! Unless coutinho goes then lallana is never going to get a good run in the team and ibe, Marko and sterling get the ing roles!

6.) 08 Jun 2015 19:20:54
A good run in the team at the number 10 role**

7.) 08 Jun 2015 19:30:10
We all know Sterling is off, kovacic (if) comin will be to replace him.

8.) 08 Jun 2015 22:02:07
@Maxi96, you say not needed at all and then you say if he goes and Kovacic comes in then that would be perfect.

If he was never needed then why would we need to replace him?

I'd expect this rumour is complete and utter garbage anyway. He'd want to stay to prove himself and Southampton wouldn't pay that much for him back either.

9.) 09 Jun 2015 09:56:21
Sure it is rubbish although Kovacic would be good , a physiacally stronger player, I cannot see us signing him either.

10.) 09 Jun 2015 10:38:28
When you say" some reports", where are these reports from. The Beano

11.) 09 Jun 2015 11:19:54
If Kovacic comes, it's to replace Lucas sadly!

12.) 09 Jun 2015 22:45:34
Kovacic is More of holding player

13.) 10 Jun 2015 02:31:42
In an ideal world Joe Allen would be moved on and Kovacic brought in. Lallana has lots of quality and certainly adds significant strength to our squad if not our first team - selling him after a season is pointless.



29 May 2015 00:10:06
We've had a 9m bid rejected for clyne.


1.) 31 May 2015 09:32:21
Southampton say they have not received any bids for Clyne. I woild rather believe the club than a newspaper.



04 Apr 2015 01:12:21
I'm hearing it's gunna be:
Can toure sakho
Manquillo Lucas hendo Moreno
Sterling coutinho


1.) 04 Apr 2015 08:44:53
Nice one benny, didn't expect manquillo but glad Lucas is in there!

2.) 08 Apr 2015 11:56:19
Is'nt Can suspended??

Jordan Ibe has drafted in Kenny Dalglish and given up his summer holidays to improve his game and take it to the next level. The last week and untill pre season starts he will be working on his finishing and technical side of his game.

Have a look sterling and balotelli!


1.) 10 Jun 2015 22:53:56
Kids going to be special.

I don't know why we're still looking at attackers when we have so many already. Goalkeeper, a right back, and keeping Lucas would do me. Maybe one more striker if we can shift Balo, Borini, Aspas and Lambert.

2.) 10 Jun 2015 23:03:16
Have high hopes for the lad - think he's real quality and seems to have his head in the right space too. Hope we don't mess him around!

3.) 11 Jun 2015 02:18:35
He'll be a great addition if The Nose doesn't play him at RB or in goal.

4.) 11 Jun 2015 07:05:30
He nose you know.



10 Jun 2015 11:43:01
Hi eds
Reports out this morning that Rodgers has a very limited transfer budget this season.
I know we don't talk money here but is that the case?


{Ed002's Note - I have spent the past year explaining about the issues the club has with FFP and the need to become fiscally responsible.}

1.) 10 Jun 2015 12:58:01
Shock horror

Exactly what the eds have been telling everyone.

Our money this summer is coming from selling sterling.

2.) 10 Jun 2015 20:53:07
We knew this already.



08 Jun 2015 15:40:25
Even though he doesn't deserve it and may get a couple red cards, has anybody thought if we just unleash balotelli and let him play his game and not try to control him he'd be actually quite good? He likes to play the deeper striker role where he can link up with the mids and roam around. Ideal if he had sturridge or origi ahead of him to run through.

I'd sell him for sure but if we have no takers then we may aswell try and not blow 30m on benteke.


1.) 08 Jun 2015 17:45:47
Glad I'm not the only who thinks Balotelli can still save his career at Liverpool. Awful season no doubt, but apart from Coutinhio (who really just had an acceptable season) nobody did well. Balotelli is just an easy target to defer the truth, that everybody in the squad had as bad a season as he did.

2.) 08 Jun 2015 17:55:57
can balotelli save his career in liverpool? yes. but a very, very big portion of the work has to come from him.

3.) 08 Jun 2015 18:14:29
I can't see Rodgers giving him that chance.

Sturridge was out almost all season and Rodgers did not give any of his strikers a fair chance (Balotelli, Borini or Lambert).

4.) 08 Jun 2015 18:21:55
Clear difference between "can" and "will".

I don't think the guy has the passion to get to the top. Such a great shame as the attributes he has deserved someone with a lot more dedication and execution.

What a waste.

If you could combine Balotelli's ability and Carra's application you'd end up with



5.) 08 Jun 2015 20:38:59
Look balotelli is a con.

Most of his goals at milan were either free kicks or penalties, and this season i have failed to see any kind of footballing intelligence at all.

You're either a centre forward who's big and stands in the box or you like to get involved in build up play and run at the opposition a bit.

Balotelli however is a centre forward who should be moving around in the box, but instead he trudges round as far away from the ball as possible, shows no movement and if he was given marks for creating chances he would probably be in the minus numbers. And don't give me any crap about him having a certain 'play style'- he's a big, athletic lad, i'm sure he can run a bit faster and more nimble than someone who needs a zipper frame.

Then there's the blatant lack of practising.
Suarez wasnt world class when he came here, he kept practising and practising and perfected his game.

Balotelli clearly has some kind of natural ability in being able to hit the ball very hard, and he has a big aerial presence - so you say go and perfect your shooting accuracy and your in the box movement, as well as heading.

But nah, clearly he's beyond that. I haven't heard one report or defence from liverpool colleagues who claim he is working overtime to correct his flaws.

Proof is in the pudding really.

6.) 08 Jun 2015 20:42:59
I want him gone. That way, he will no longer be used as the scapegoat for all our troubles and will no longer serve as cover for others` blunders. I think he can still play despite his inability to work on his talent which he defo has.

7.) 09 Jun 2015 03:17:36
so gerrard is a con?



08 Jun 2015 14:10:25
A lot of you so called "fans" complaining about ings already.
The guys good, he's more suited to our game than lambert balotelli and borini.
He scored more for a team that had the worst goal scoring record in the league than lukaku and falcao.
But if we signed lukaku for 30m this morning all you lot would be preaching top 4 right now.
Ings presses, gets in behind and is quick!

What you should be worried about is barret saying this morning that were still very interested in benteke, who imo would be a disaster signing, 30M+ doesn't press, doesn't run in behind and has said he wants guaranteed playing time from who ever he sings for.
He's a slower version of balotelli, and there game is very very similar so what's the point?




05 Jun 2015 12:31:09
Ings on his way to anfield to sign


1.) 05 Jun 2015 14:43:29
Please no. Milners bad enough

2.) 05 Jun 2015 15:09:58
👏👏 perhaps you would have been happier had we spend 20 million on a foreigner with a foreign sounding name who you bought on Fifa

3.) 05 Jun 2015 15:12:53
Are you having an utter utter joke DBol. Milners bad enough ?

I really hope that's a joke message, as people are certainly not laughing with you.

Ings and Milner for apparently £5m is outstanding business. If that was Wenger people would be congratulating him on the business done. In Rodgers we trust

4.) 05 Jun 2015 16:03:44
They would have cost a lot more than £5m I imagine.
But Milner is a good signing and I like Ings but have a few doubts, but for "free" it's a good low risk signing.

5.) 05 Jun 2015 16:06:45
Its good value but I fail to see how either will up our game enough to gain top 4 back. I don't care how much they cost, what I care about is quality. An 11 goal striker and a bit part England player isn't going to do it. They may even get player of the season next year but that still counts as a failure if we aren't at least competing for top four. A lot depends on who else we bring in. If these are our main incomings then yes I will be very disappointed

6.) 05 Jun 2015 16:52:16
I think both will improve us and Ings will improve as a player. If we get Clyne, that's three England International players for under £20m in purchase fees. Not bad at all.

Both Milner and Ings have looked to me like they WANT to play for us. Never going to knock that

7.) 05 Jun 2015 16:56:00
I don't know why we concern ourselves with the money spent on certain players, when the real question is if these players improve the team, and I would say both do. Ings won't be enough, sure, but a class striker next to Origi, Sturridge and Ings will look very good.

8.) 05 Jun 2015 18:36:08
If our capitulation at the end of the season tought us anything players with qualities like Milner are needed, sure not the most skilful or quick or technical, but his hard work allowed players like Silva to flourish. It was noticeable how better City were with him in the side.

Vinny o'conner at sly sports is saying "he's been told Liverpool have no interest and are not interested in signing kovacic"

He's got two years left on his contract. So not this January but next yeah 8m.


{Ed001's Note - no this January, or he would be going for nothing. Do you not understand? Only you seem to be getting it all wrong, clearly not understanding that next summer he can just go under the Webster ruling.}

We don't need all of them, this is the mistake we made last season, signing to meny players who are just not good enough, imo Milner & ings are good value for money. If ings plays a lot I can see him being a great striker, he's not a big slow striker he's actually quite quick and will press.
Why sign benteke at the reported 30m ? His injury record is really bad plus it would put ings on the bench.
If we can't get a top striker this window then save the money I say.

WTF is everyone's attraction to arsenal? Are they dying to be part of the race for top 4. Do they offer ridiculous wages? I don't get it.
What's attractive about a team that win nothing and get spanked every time a tough team comes along.

I would very much like to know how you get in the loop.
U don't have to post this on the site u can email me with pointers if u have time.

Ed1 why do u think the more reliable journalists, barret, Pearce, boscombe, and sly are saying there's no interest from Liverpool in kovacic?
Think this is the first time I've seen the eds say we've got a deal in place and not have it backed up by anybody.


{Ed001's Note - it is because they are out of the loop, and it is not the first time.}

Ed. 2 & Macca
Why is there so meny kovacic reports saying he's verbally agreed to join Liverpool and we're going back and forth with inter about the price? When the echo and others has said we're not interested.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot account for things published on Twitter or in blogs, or on websites who take information from here, or twitter or blogs. I have no idea what the "Echo" or "others" have said. I have explained the situation with the player, with Ausilio and with the offer from Liverpool. The club are not stupid enough to have approached the player directly. They know what they need to do to give a deal the opportunity of going through. Inter need to raise money and are looking for interest from elsewhere, or looking to sell others.}

Fatjan you exactly right with that post but the problem is Rodgers doesn't see the need for a DM and lacazzette is WAY out of our league, we may have the money but he wouldn't be interested atall.
Think that's why the only serious links to strikers we've had is benteke, because he plays for a lesser team than Liverpool.
Vietto would be a good shout but he likes Spain.
So who else is there?
I think the main problem I have with Rodgers in charge is we buy from teams who's players would jump at the chance to play for us, where as a klopp/ancelotti/Benitez are known successful managers who can and will attract top players with or without CL.
This is our main problem I think.
