Hey eds and reds

What is the future of Brewster at the club I'm hearing he's going but the club are doing all they can to keep him . What do the eds see happening in this scenario

Cheers.

Dhfc

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in him from German clubs - this is not new. This has been discussed before, the search engine may help.}


1.) 13 May 2018 19:12:04
Cheers ed 2

I know he is a massive talent but how far away is he from 1st team competitive football

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - In England on a regular basis - a couple of years or so I would think.}


2.) 13 May 2018 19:26:13
Ed is it true about Mondelbach allegedly tapping up Brewster?

Taste of our own medicine if true lol but sucks either way.

However if we aren't ready to play him, then I can see why his head has turned.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know if they have made a direct approach to the player. The original interest was from Dortmund, and RBL have also been looking at him.}


3.) 13 May 2018 20:44:33
Nice to hear off ya Ed- have you seen much of Brewster? If so do you rate him?

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to "rate" players I am afraid.}


4.) 13 May 2018 21:49:28
Dortmund’s success with Sancho shows it can work!

Whilst I think he should stay, I think he would do well in Germany.


5.) 14 May 2018 06:08:46
2 year loan with a return clause would be good for all.

{Ed001's Note - he is only on a youth contract, he doesn't have 2 years on it.}

Hey eds and reds

Seen a name mentioned for our midfield that never heard of before

Bruno Fernandes of sporting Lisbon
Looks very silky on the ball
Heard anything on this player eds

Cheers.

Dhfc

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool but the €100M asking price put off another PL side who enquired.}


1.) 16 Apr 2018 08:27:34
lol, gosh, knowing us and the way we handle such. We probably will be asked to pay twice that.


2.) 16 Apr 2018 18:34:05
Portugal has excellent midfielders now a days
Bruno
Bernardo
Ruben!

Hey Eds and reds

Reading through the posts and I am made up to see that midfield is priority this summer . I would like us to keep hold of Emre Can though as I think he is getting better and better and he adds strength to the midfield although at times he is culpable of slowing play down .

If we got draxler Meyer and a right back with keita coming in also I think that's a huge summer
Oh and keep little mo obviously

Any of this seem plausible?

Dhfc

1.) 25 Mar 2018 17:27:12
Doesn't seem implausible, I have no idea what cans agenda is though at first I thought it was about challenging for league and champs league etc at maybe juve but it's starting to look like it's really about who will pay him the most, should have seen it coming really.


2.) 25 Mar 2018 18:06:40
Meyer's strengths are reportedly stronger in the central and forward midfield roles than further back, so unless klopp wants to adapt his game somewhat, we still won't have an established and good quality deeper lying midfielder as contingency for when hendo is injured- which sadly seems to be very often in recent times.
Could ceballos be the deeper lying midfielder we need to maybe compete with hendo for a starting place?
The Eds have said the club are interested in him, but we can only make so many changes before the squad loses some of its established cohesion.


3.) 25 Mar 2018 23:14:55
I though Meyer had been converted to a DLP this year and was doing well?


4.) 25 Mar 2018 22:34:41
If any of the EDDS r around,
Strong rumours circulating that were in for TIMO WERNER, any news EDDS.

{Ed001's Note - nothing that I am aware of regarding us.}


5.) 26 Mar 2018 04:25:42
Well if Can's playing the money game, then we can say well played. Nothing wrong with wanting more money. If anyone's good, he should be paid what's worth.


6.) 26 Mar 2018 05:41:05
Don't really think Can has got better and better to be honest, think he has been hugely inconsistent throughout his time at the club (though the positions changes obviously did not help him) and, despite an extended run in midfield, he has not done that well. Still has an woefully inconsistent pass, positionally he struggles and he, like most of the midfield, doesn't contribute enough goals. Apparently he believes he deserves 200k - why he thinks this I do not know. What I do know is that he is not irreplaceable and that it is not the end of the world if he leaves.

{Ed001's Note - take no notice of the media reports, he is not interested in staying at Liverpool, it really is that simple. He wants a move. Any talk of how much he wants is just to be ignored, he has pretty much made up his mind to leave.}


7.) 26 Mar 2018 07:50:08
Anonymush, Meyer has been playing deeper this season and has apparently excelled in that position. So he could be that contingency in case Henderson was out or allow Henderson to move slightly further forward alongside Keita!


8.) 26 Mar 2018 12:44:17
This has probably been done but Can wants to move for what reason? Lack of playing time, played out of position, wants a bigger club? Or just wants a change?


9.) 26 Mar 2018 15:50:04
Maybe Klopp just doesn’t rate Can that highly. and Can knows it so he’s off.
Once Keita comes in, he’d struggle to make the starting line-up anyway.
Best he moves on in my opinion.


10.) 26 Mar 2018 17:46:48
Fair play Ed the lad is just after leaving, I'm sure he will have a good number of clubs chasing his signature. In some ways it is a shame he has just decided he doesn't want to stay but interesting, on the other, to see who we will replace him with - recruitment has been decent in recent seasons, hopefully it will continue that trend.


 

 

07 Jun 2017 15:45:59
I've read that klopp met with van dijk in Blackpool to personally convince him his future is at anfield . (mirror)

Surely if this is true we will be facing some sort of transfer ban and fine . I fail to see how the club could be so stupid myself and not learn from past events .

Any idea if any the above is true?

Dhfc

1.) 07 Jun 2017 15:59:12
It's true they were spotted on the big dipper together and also shared some Blackpool rock.


2.) 07 Jun 2017 16:00:20
hope not.


3.) 07 Jun 2017 16:11:00
Considering this come from John Cross and the mirror, i really don't believe it. Plus I've seen photos the past couple days on Klopp on holiday in iceland.


4.) 07 Jun 2017 16:15:47
"Mirror" says it all mate 😂.


5.) 07 Jun 2017 16:18:02
Yeh and they both stopped in my hotel and had a full English brekky 😂😂.


6.) 07 Jun 2017 16:18:50
I guess the club would use the Mourinho/ Cole thing as a yardstick.


 

 

04 Jun 2017 00:12:38
I've heard a rumour and I stress rumour that hendersons career is basically going to be on a downward slope from now on as this injury means he is going to be playing through pain rest of his career . I was gutted when I heard this as Henderson is an unsung hero in this team and when fully fit and in form 1 of the best midfielders in the league and Europe . Just want the eds to clarify if they have heard anything similar?

Dhfc

1.) 04 Jun 2017 00:28:07
This contradicts what Henderson himself said couple of weeks ago where he said he was as fit as he had been for a long while or something along those lines.


2.) 04 Jun 2017 03:26:04
@DHFC Henderson "when fully fit and in form 1 of the best midfielders in the league and Europe. " Ummmmm, No.


3.) 04 Jun 2017 06:33:37
Ummmm Yes! He on his day has everything. Great stamina, strength, pace is good enough, passing range, leadership, tackling, tracking, goals, assists and desire.

He is underrated and under appreciated by too many fans.


4.) 04 Jun 2017 07:48:29
Come on Max, you should get with the program and realise that if you play for Liverpool you are automatically not good enough and deserve to be slated especially if there is no good reason to.

Hey eds

Getting mighty close to silly season I remember one if not both of you saying you expect most clubs to do their business early

With that being said do you think that clubs have lined deals up ready to continue soon as window is open .

Pre final nerves hitting me already
Cmon the red men.

Dhfc

{Ed001's Note - a number of clubs already have done some, if you read the review of the day you will see them going through every day.}


1.) 17 May 2018 10:45:25
Hi ed, in January you didn't have the confidence in the club to get potential signings over the line (mainly the attacking midfielder) . Do you now feel more confident that we will get our main targets signed in the summer?

{Ed001's Note - I am extremely superstitious mark, when I want a player, they never arrive, when I am confident it never happens. So I am going to stick with lacking confidence and not wanting any of our players to sign.....}


2.) 17 May 2018 12:21:30
The two players I desperately want are Alison Becker and Milinkovic Savic. wishful thinking!


 

 

31 Mar 2018 21:05:39
Hey eds
Hearing the club looking to sign Brewster up on long term senior contract but I vaguely remember a post saying he was maybe looking to move to try get senior football game time any idea on what his or the clubs plans are for him in the near future
Cheers.

Dhfc

{Ed002's Note - The club want to keep him but need to make a commitment.}


1.) 31 Mar 2018 21:29:27
Ed2, silly question it might be but how do these commitments work? Are they mainly verbal or contractual and with the verbal ones how much do the players believe in them as you have said in the past some managers including Klopp have broken those promises, which must come into other players minds.

{Ed002's Note - They are verbal. It is a tough thing for clubs generally driven by kids expecting too much too soon. Some clubs simply won't go down that route.}


 

 

19 Mar 2018 20:27:19
Hi Eds

Regardless of how the season pans out top 4/ Europe do we expect to be targeting the same players in the summer regardless?
Is there to be a big clear out in the summer or a trimming of the squad if we are being polite

Cheers.

Dhfc

1.) 19 Mar 2018 22:47:00
I don’t see the need for a “clear out”.

In fact I think t would be detrimental. A few will leave (as expected) but dramatic changes aren’t needed. The squad is playing well and looks happy.

Add 1 or 2. Lose 1 or 2. Build on what we have which is already very strong 💪🏼.


2.) 19 Mar 2018 23:04:31
It won’t be the same poor Chelsea and Arsenal next season! So if you want to fight for trophies and titles then you need solid reinforcement! I expect Klopp to buy 5 players in the summer. GK, RB, 2 x CM, Attacker.


3.) 19 Mar 2018 23:43:55
Dhfc, did you mean to post this on the Mancs page? :)


4.) 20 Mar 2018 08:11:19
If Karius continues his form then maybe not a gk and a top class centerback to partner VVD. any injury to VVD and we're back to matip/ lovern/ klavan.


5.) 20 Mar 2018 11:31:12
Depends on what you mean by a “clearout” Dhfc.

Markovic, Mignolet, Bogdan, Flanagan and Sturridge are definite outs if buyers can be found. Grujic, Origi and Clyne are all 3rd choice and will most likely want to leave. Can is already leaving, Milner and Klavan are both coming towards the end of their career and will most likely move this season or next depending on incomings. Lallana apparently wants to leave

And then there are the youth players who have the task of breaking into the first team. Woodburn, Ward, Kent, Ejaria, Ojo, Randall, Wilson, Chirivella, Allan and Awoniyi. Most will go back on Loan but I can't see them all wanting to stay at the club and fight for their place in the first team.

So there will be quite a bit of movement out of the club in my opinion.


6.) 20 Mar 2018 12:54:24
The best bit of business we can do this summer is to convince salah to stay for another season.


7.) 20 Mar 2018 16:45:52
Lallana wants to leave? That can only be to spurs surely?


8.) 20 Mar 2018 19:19:01
Harry, Arsenal is finished and will remain finished as long as that dinosaur is still in charge. As for Chelsea, if they get Enrique who is decent BUT not in Conte's class, their shameless board will do the same things they have done to Conte and many before him. to Enrique. And Hazard may not even be there next season as well. City will not stop, neither will Spurs (if they keep Kane) and clearly, we will too. I would not hold my breathe about a GK if Karius keeps going cos remember, Karius is his guy and has always wanted him to be no. 1
and by the way, Ed02 has said Allison (many's preferred choice) is a non starter. Let's go!


 

 

17 Feb 2018 07:47:23
Hey eds and reds

Was wondering what the plan is with grujic
By all accounts he's doing very well playing the 6 at Cardiff bar a few random pot shots from distance.
Is he a possibility to play deputy to Henderson as the 6 next season or will he be loaned/ sold
I think he could be a colossus in midfield he needs to bulk up and get fitter from what I've seen

Cheers eds.

Dhfc

{Ed001's Note - it depends on him, before he went out he was not working hard enough in training and so not getting chances because he did not earn them. Instead his dad was busy whining in the press. Now he has gone out on loan and had the kick up the arse he needed and hopefully it will have clicked. However it is up to him, he has to play well, work hard and earn his chance for next season.}


1.) 17 Feb 2018 08:33:34
The question is whether there is a place for him in the squad next season. Our midfield will be overloaded even if Can, Milner and probably Lallana leave. We have Keita and probably another midfielder coming in the summer. Hendo, Keita, OX, Gini, new mid competing for the midfield slots so Grujic better step up big time. Half a***d effort in training or poor performances in the championship will not cut it anymore. Its do or die for his LFC career.

{Ed002's Note - The problem comes IB from promises being made to players and not kept - hence the issues there have been. The ideal time for the loan would have been when he first arrived but that was not possible. YUou are right he is rapidly heading for a decision point, and hopefully Liverpool take the lesson learned away from this whole affair.}


2.) 17 Feb 2018 08:47:52
Unfortunately I think its too late for Grujic's LFC career. The kid will not want to be rotting on the bench or stands next season so a loan (more likely) or a sale will do his career a favour. But even that will probably be done with a view to raising the transfer fee if he plays well. No matter what Klopp says in the media, I think deep down he knew Grujic was never going to be a quality option in midfield especially with fans getting impatient for trophies and the player himself not giving 100% every time in training.
The blame for Grujic's LFC career however cannot be laid solely at LFC's doorstep due to lack of proper planning for youngsters' careers. Grujic and his dad must have had a say in matters and it looks like wrong decisions were made by both parties at all intervals.

{Ed002's Note - It is Liverpool's fault IB. Commitments were made that should not have been. Liverpool agreed to the transfer of Grujic after agreeing a record fee with Red Star Belgrade and making an astonishing wage offer (which has very much come back to bite the club due to the structuring of it. I don't know what promise of game time had been made but it was explained by his representative that Liverpool offered him a year as a squad player getting regular playing time and then the step up to the first team - the same promise as Klopp would lie to the Work Permit committee about. This far outstripped any other offer, particularly with the club are promising significant starting game time. Inter could not match the transfer fee in cash and certainly not the wages even though they were his first choice destination. Chelsea offered a lower transfer fee (that could have been resolved) but would not be looking at him for the first team for probably two and a half years. That would comprise an initial loan back to Red Star (perhaps even including the next season at Red Star - but that was not Chelsea's preference) and then two years on loan in Europe as he was seen as being behind the pecking order of another midfield player (Pasalic) who was going through that process with Chelsea already. Liverpool's offer also ended interest from Napoli, Hamburg, Wolfsburg, PSG, Manchester United, Everton, Manchester City and Roma (although none of these clubs put a firm offer on the table as I understand it) but Stuttgart, Udinese and Anderlecht had proposals which they thought would be more acceptable to the family of the player who were worried about the damage a move to Liverpool could do to his career - not just financial proposals but career building proposals. In order to get a work permit Klopp showed up to the hearing and made guarantees which Liverpool needed to keep or it could potentially be taken away - and that is the reason for the loan now. The wages are very significant for a player of his age. The club should not make any guarantees to youngsters.}


3.) 17 Feb 2018 09:30:00
Ed2 do you think we’ve learned with the new Colombian kid we’ve signed and sent on loan or do you think that is to get him a work permit? I’m still hopeful that criticism he received will be the makings of him.

{Ed002's Note - Arroyo is different to the likes of Allan, Taiwo Awoniyi and Brooks Lennon which were mistakes given the lack of a development structure. Lennon has left completely and the others will struggle to qualify again this coming summer. Arroyo is a risk because he does not qualify for a Work Permit but he has been purchased with some sort of plan in place. A couple or three years on loan and progression through the international ranks would help but Liverpool will likely still need the help of the "special conditions" clauses. Right now the credibility Liverpool had has gone. In two or three years it will be different.}


4.) 17 Feb 2018 11:30:54
Surely whatever promises were made to the player, he still has to hold up his side and put the effort in in training. Add to that he's had his fair share of injuries. it works both ways.


5.) 17 Feb 2018 11:15:24
The lesson learned for FSG / Club / Board : Not all youngsters would go on and become a £50 mill profit like sterling!


6.) 17 Feb 2018 11:52:55
Ed002, Liverpool seem to have taken steps to rebuild relationships with other clubs i. e Southampton by paying an inflated fee for VVD and Fulham by loaning Ojo. They seem to be learning from past mistakes and putting things in place so these are not repeated.
Is this something FSG have stepped in to do, which I believe is the case with the purchase of VVD, or is it more down to the Liverpool board learning?

{Ed002's Note - There was no rebuilding with Southampton and there was no negotiation for the price. FSG asked for the price not the club. They were given a figure £15M higher than the asking price that was to be told to another interested side - and returned to say they would pay it and proposed terms. As for Fulham, two people remain at the club who were around when the illegal approach was made by Liverpool and they have made the situation clear to the owner. I don't know if the loan helps or not to be honest. Hopefully Liverpool has learned as you say.}


7.) 17 Feb 2018 12:34:47
I still think he has a chance but needs to step up and prove he can perform at championship level first. Here’s hoping he does so and they go on and get promoted, then I’d love to see him playing in PL next season with them for another season too before deciding if he’s ready to return in 18 months to compete for a starting spot (which is what we should have done with Ward) .


8.) 17 Feb 2018 12:40:16
Cheers for the reply ed2, it’s nice to hear we at least have a plan with the lad. Can’t help but wonder how some of the young players’ careers may have turned out with the right structure in place. I’m a big believer in youth and in this day and age, proper development for youngsters should be a massive priority going forward in light of the insanity in the market. Not to mention the irresponsibility of mismanaging youth. I really hope the club changes it’s ways. I really hope this is a sign of at least a little thought being put into the future.


9.) 17 Feb 2018 13:51:34
Thanks for the reply Ed, appreciate it as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


10.) 17 Feb 2018 16:53:54
I sometimes wonder who Ed02 is and how high up the food chain he is. Maybe a major decision maker in UEFA? I wonder how he gets such precise info. As omniscient as Dumbledore?


11.) 18 Feb 2018 09:53:00
Realtofel
Ha ha. This is nothing mate. If you want to see his vintage best, Try European page. He is literally unplayable over there. Only a highly knowledgeable man could even enter into the European Breakaway league topic. You could disagree with his views but I don’t think you could have a second opinion on his information. Liverpool news are Just like drinking a tea for him!


12.) 18 Feb 2018 11:21:21
I always thought he was young enough to turn into a centre back. He has the physical attributes and obvious ball skills. Maybe he doesn’t want to play there, I just think we should have tried it, done a bit of a “Hummels” on him.


 

 

02 Jan 2018 19:22:53
Hey eds and reds
With silly season up and running again and us getting linked to different players every day .
I think the club is in a healthy place at the minute with or without phil it's never great losing one of your best players but it's happened before and it will happen again

Any player that dons the red shirt has my support and yours too hopefully . As fans we should support and not critique every move the club makes .

Cmon the redmen.

From what I’ve seen he seems the perfect fit for Liverpool young talented and point to prove . I for 1 aprove of this move if it’s true. The 1 thing that baffles me is he being signed as a forward (ie replacement for coutinho) or as a replacement for can in midfield . Excited to see what our midfield will look like next year

Thanks for the updates eds and reds 👌🏻.

Do you expect a cb to leave for Gomez to develop in that role or will he continue at rb to get games. I seen ed 333 mentioned taa being developed into midfield which I would be made up with as he has every attribute to be a major success in the middle.

Dhfc

{Ed001's Note - it was me that said that about TAA. Gomez will continue to get games at right back and cup games in the centre, and cover for injuries. I expect Klavan to be phased out, possibly even sold.}

I think we could upgrade in a few positions in the summer (keeper, cm ) but the front 3 are nearly impossible to upgrade on . They have everything liverpool and klopp are about pace power aggression passion .
I think our back up options could be improved upon . But I’d love to see the likes of Woodburn Ojaria grujic solanke Trent get given opportunities to make the fans and the club think twice about buying players . I’m all for people making the step up .

I kind of agree with Aldo as as good as firmino is and scoring goals this season I think we could upgrade in a central striker but the only thinks is whoever wer to come would have to match firmino work rate . I see firmino as a number 10 more of a creater than goal scorer.
