Morning Eds, Quick question, how reliable is the Sunday Express? They've published an article today claiming Liverpool are close to deals for Norwich midfielder James Maddison and Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon!

{Ed001's Note - around about as reliable as the Metro or the Beano judging by what you have just said.}


1.) 22 Apr 2018 14:12:06
Ed, that’s pretty disrespectful to the beano!


2.) 22 Apr 2018 14:19:47
Dear Ed001,
I have to protest at your comment in regard to the Beano's reliability. As a reader and subscriber of this publication for many years, I must point out that the Beano's sport section, and especially the 'news and rumour' section, is far superior to that of The Express, Metro and indeed, The Star.
Yours sincerely,
Killingholme Clay on behalf of Biffo.

{Ed001's Note - I apologise, I should, of course, have said The Dandy.}

Upset Desperate Dan at your own peril.

{Ed001's Note - you do seem to have great knowledge of the comic. Very .... impressive.}


4.) 22 Apr 2018 15:34:29
I only read the serious bits.
:-D.

{Ed001's Note - are you suggesting there are any bits that aren't serious??}


5.) 22 Apr 2018 16:21:18
Woah! Desperate Dan should not be mentioned in any form of bad writing as in a example along side the express.
The Dandy is legendary. I still dream of Cow Pie
Ed’s my respect to you is there but but please refrain from the mocking of The Dandy.


6.) 22 Apr 2018 19:04:58
I'm more worried about Desperate Harry!

Hi Eds, just curious whether there has being any indication that Liverpool would target additional wide players in the summer to compete with Manè and Salah (cover injuries/ strength in depth) or considering how well Harry Wilson has being doing at Hull will Jurgen give him a chance to impress rather than sign another winger?

{Ed002's Note - A couple of players who the club has shown an interest in are able to play wide. I would rather doubt you will see much of Wilson next year.}


1.) 15 Apr 2018 13:27:42
What's the plan with Wilson? Another loan?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plan at this time. I appreciate reports are good and he is doing well but it is hard to see how he would fit in to the first team plans for next season given he has zero relevant experience and has been playing in the Championship and PL2.}


2.) 15 Apr 2018 15:17:08
Maybe a loan to a premier league team?


3.) 15 Apr 2018 15:23:43
Ed002, I read your reports on our most linked midfield options and below it you said to give you a break because people keep asking about attacking options. Just wondering. have you had enough of a break now, that we can ask for your list of our attacking options?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean by "most linked". As for more attacking players I don't think anything has changed.}


4.) 18 Apr 2018 00:21:13
We should see if Klopp's pal at Huddlesfield will take Wilson on loan next year and give him regular playing time.

There is rumours circulating that Liverpool have had a €20m bid for Stefan de Vrij rejected by Lazio, this would be a cheap alternative to Virgil Van Dijk, Lazio apparently want €30m!


1.) 07 Jun 2017 17:32:50
Quality CB imo. Better value for money than VVD at half the price. Lazio want 20 million plus for him but he would be worth it coz he also possesses leadership qualities.


2.) 07 Jun 2017 18:11:50
I asked ed01 who he would prefer to vvd after he had said why he didn't think vvd was right for us- de vrij was the player named as a realuatic alternative.


3.) 07 Jun 2017 18:11:59
Not aware of any link (I thought he was Milan-bound? ), but he is a good player who's improved considerably and probably does represent better value if Southampton is now demanding £70m.


4.) 07 Jun 2017 18:13:54
Maybe we are looking to buy both and play 6 at the back next year 😂.

Hi Eds, There is rumours circulating that LFC have sent representatives to Portugal to try and broker a deal for William Carvalho, is there any truth in this rumour?

{Ed002's Note - William Carvalho has been looked at by Liverpool so there is the chance that something can be done.}


1.) 24 Jan 2017 11:47:33
I personally can't see this happening but going back to the summer window and I remember having a convo with a few reds and ed001 about who would like to see us sign and my target was William carvalho. looks a destroyer in the middle of the park and after watching the euros in the summer was very good on the ball. would be a good signing in my opinion, this signing would surley mean the end to stewart at lfc tho in the long term. the lad is 23 and by now would be thinking about his options especially if carvalho or indeed another central midfielder signed.


2.) 24 Jan 2017 11:43:03
Would he be Expensive eds? I remember sporting where asking for almost 40 million before?

{Ed002's Note - Yes he would be expensive.}


3.) 24 Jan 2017 12:03:35
Ed02, Out of curiosity, you mentioned in the past that Arsenal had sustained interest in the player. Have they moved on mate or they are still interested in the player.
Thanks a ton for the reply in advance

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal's interest has gone.}


 

 

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!


1.) 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.

Hi Eds,

Great site, just want to make a few points in relation to Coutinho and what seems like our transfer incompetence. Firstly I hope that retaining Coutinho from the clutches of Barcelona is not seen as a great transfer victory and detracts from our failings so far in this window. Secondly there is a perception that if Liverpool overcome Hoffenheim, LFC will be in a position to start preying on clubs who have failed to achieve Champions League Football. It's all gone very quite at Anfield at the moment, the silence is deafening, our squad is one injury away from a Lovren/ Klavan CB partnership, I cannot believe Klopp is happy with the situation, imagine going to places like the Bernabeu with them as your last line of defence, Robertson had a great deput yesterday I just hope that he's not the only defensive addition. Thoughts!

{Ed002's Note - I think that Liverpool has a little business to do still. Klaven is a player Klopp purchased and he has repeatedly said he is happy with the defence, although of course he wants, and I assume still expects, van Dijk.}


1.) 20 Aug 2017 13:58:22
The transfer window isn't over yet. Cheer up, we've made 3 signings - Solanke had a very good preseason and looks to have a great future, Salah has been impressive since we signed him and finally, Robertson who we've only seen once, but was easily the star player yesterday. It could be worse. At least we have the chance to go to the Bernabeau, unlike last season.

Hi Eds,
New rumour circulating that Liverpool are interested in signing Nice's Jean Michaël Seri, any insight? apparently he is available for €40m!


1.) 14 Aug 2017 13:32:25
Would be a good signing, has just come off of a very good season in Nice and is highly rated, fits the type of midfielder that Klopp was after as he is quite dynamic and gets stuck in, was linked with Barcelona and Juve I think?


2.) 14 Aug 2017 13:33:42
Yeah I was you g to post and ask any of the eds or other supporters about Seri, I seen this link in the echo and don't watch much ligue 1 so not sure what type of player he us or what his qualities he has.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 13:45:42
Anyone know how he compares to Keita? i've never seen either play to be honest.


4.) 14 Aug 2017 13:48:02
I hope so (he is class but a little bit of what we have already) but I would go for Matuidi. He would add a bit of steal.


5.) 14 Aug 2017 14:14:39
We do not lack steal or any kind of physical presence
For which we are linked with Keita. We have enough power in Can, Hendo and Wijnaldum. We lack creativity. To split tight defense and transfer quick attacks and carry the ball in tight areas. I don't know about seri, but that's why we are after Keita!


6.) 14 Aug 2017 17:48:13
We can't defend.

Did you watch the game? We scored 3 goals, the first of which was a worldie. To say we lack creativity is plain rubbish. Power is not the same as steal. Steal means you have the ability to dig deep and make sure you do your job even when you don't fancy it and also to make sure others do theirs.


 

 

13 Aug 2017 15:31:55
Hi eds,

Just a question from a disgruntled LFC fan in relation to FSG, do you firmly believe that Jurgen Klopp has the full support of FSG, James Pearce had indicated that LFC had 200m to spend in this transfer window, surely any quality manager looking at our defence over the past 18 months would have identified reasonable solutions to our defensive situation and made the necessary changes to improve the team, VVD aside, surely Klopp with a 200m warchest has the capacity to purchase alternatives or is Klopp being held back by the FSG profit making machine who are only interested in supplementing the Boston Red Sox.

{Ed002's Note - I don't get why the Liverpool fans are so concerned with the owners of the club. The club runs itself and has its own board of directors. FSG as a business do not directly interfere with the day to day running. I have no idea why anyone mentioned a budget but obviously Klopp identified back in April (to select member of the press) the four targets that he wanted. I know nothing of any "war chest". Why don't you ask James Pearce?}


1.) 13 Aug 2017 17:04:24
Were the 4 Brandt, Keita, VVD and Mendy Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Sessegnon, not Mendy.}


2.) 13 Aug 2017 17:16:46
Ed002, it's just because they are a more accessible outlet to which frustration with the current situation can be directed. The board of directors are, by and largely, anonymous, and the understanding shared by many fans in that the owners are somewhat apathetic towards the club. That's obviously not true, this is a huge investment, but understanding why is easy.

{Ed002's Note - Right, I can't help how little the Liverpool supporters know about their club.}

Hi Eds,

Just a post in relation to our fullback options and Liverpool's inability to make first class signings. It feels like if LFC cannot sign Keita or Van Dijk there is no alternative and it seems Jurgen is happy to continue with Milner at LB. Don't get me wrong, I think Milner has done a great job when LFC dominate games, Milner struggles defensively while Clyne is limited offensively, Man City are prepared to pay £100m on 2 fullbacks in Walker and Mendy while Liverpool are contemplating Tierney and Robertson, it's a shocking contrast in ambition!


1.) 13 Jul 2017 20:44:23
I would love to see the fullback situation taken care of before reinforcing any other part of the squad. In Klopp's system, the full backs provide the majority of the width with a holding mid dropping to provide cover. Neither Milner nor Clyne are successful in this role. Both are average in both departments. However, there are very few fullbacks in the world who are capable of both defending in a high press system, as well as providing the necessary outlet in attack. And the ones who are capable are either unavailable or don't seem to want to join Liverpool. This isn't FIFA where you can purchase any player you want if you have the funds. That being said, I will remain optimistic that we bring in a fullback for both flanks.


2.) 13 Jul 2017 20:45:25
Tierney won't join us.


3.) 13 Jul 2017 21:19:14
What makes you so sure Tierney won't join us? Celtic and Liverpool have very good links historically, especially in countries like Ireland and Scotland, and you often find fans of one tend to support the other. Not saying he will but it seems daft to totally rule it out.


4.) 13 Jul 2017 21:23:51
Well said Yankee I can't see why people (not including ed1) can't see with the addition of a player like Mendy we would have a great chance of the league even without vvd or naby.


5.) 13 Jul 2017 21:59:31
I think Hansens scar is referring to the fact that Tierney has said he is happy to progress at Celtic, not least as he's a boyhood Celtic supporter.

He has also been quoted (reported earlier today on these boards, search for his name) as saying that he would prefer a move to Man Utd when he's ready to move on.

Right or wrong, that seems to be the guy's preference.

And don't forget there's been a few moves between Celtic and Man Utd over the years too.

This guy is a more powerful version of Coutinho, hope the reports are accurate, we need quality and strength in depth to compete at the highest level.

Considering Keylor Navas is 31, surely he doesn't fit the clubs current transfer policy of purchasing young talent with the potential for a reasonable sell on value? Klavan aside (due to his low cost), I just don't see LFC paying £25m for a player in their thirties but I could be proven wrong.

This is no Joke! but apparently Texeira has pulled his Hamstring and is injured, it must have happened when Ian Ayre chased him around the street looking for him to sign a contract but hopefully the deal will still be signed.
