Question for one of the Eds please? Do you think liverpool will buy a centre back in the summer? Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed001's Note - it is not expected to happen, there are other priorities.}


1.) 19 Mar 2018 17:44:21
CB isn't priority Ed 001?. That's shocking.

{Ed001's Note - not right now, Gomez is to be developed.}


2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:24:08
Assuming we're looking at RBs then? Have my fingers crossed that Matip leaves in the summer! Really not keen on him.

A good right back would be great and could give Gomez support if we bring in someone with experience. also the only area where I can't think of a single player who we've been linked with! Can't even think of many good options myself.

Eds, Any names of RBs we've looked at?

{Ed001's Note - yes right back, we have looked at hundreds mate, bit soon to get certain names of the likely targets. We have looked at Hysaj, but I would expect him to be out of reach now with Napoli not wanting to sell. The Sociedad right back Odriozola, though he is a bit too attacking for my liking, as he also play midfield. There are a few in Germany, Heinrichs, Elvedi and Weiser and the Leipzig one, whose name I have forgotten. Lots more too though how many of them will even be in the thinking when it comes time to try and buy one I don't know right now. Oh Bilbao's right back.}


3.) 19 Mar 2018 18:42:54
Cheers a lot Ed. Sorry couldn't recall any names being mentioned previously. Don't know of many RBs really so I'm not even sure of who to get excited about! Would be nice to have someone who is more defensive than offensive though I think.

Thanks again!

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen much of any of them meself either to be honest.}


4.) 19 Mar 2018 23:15:24
That's good news Ed, I'm worried that a new CB would pretty much end Gomez's future with the club.


5.) 19 Mar 2018 20:00:32
Ed what happened to the nice rb, think he was on loan pereira was it?

{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}


6.) 19 Mar 2018 21:15:36
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.

{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.}


7.) 19 Mar 2018 21:22:06
Ed1 hope you're right about Joe.

{Ed001's Note - it has always been the plan. It is up to him to make it work though.}


8.) 19 Mar 2018 22:51:57
Tell ya what Ed mate you no your stuff lol. Can you share with us what CM's we are looking at please? Or will that cause you loads of questions and work?

{Ed001's Note - other than the ones that have already been mentioned you mean? Because they have been discussed already, options such as Ceballos have had numerous threads about them.}


9.) 20 Mar 2018 07:08:07
Yeah I no mate, we've been linked to loads of CM's on here its just knowing which ones are true or not. It doesn't seem like we are looking at a proper DM to me as wouldn't be Klopps style. Ceballos seems to be the one but then Draxler has also been mentioned by Ed02, I guess he isn't a CM option more of a AM option? Owe I don't no mate lol think I need to go back to bed.


10.) 20 Mar 2018 19:12:02
So ed001 is a player to cover/ give competition for wide and creative midfield not expected this summer? Or would you say the Ox has effectively filled that role? I know it's not good to describe it as a coutinho replacement, but I also wouldn't describe it as a cm so just clarifying.
Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - the Ox and Lallana can both cover there, there is Origi, Solanke and Ings as well plus youth players such as Wilson, who have all got the ability to provide cover. Ok some of those will go, but that does not exactly leave us scrabbling around desperately for cover.}


 

 

06 Jan 2018 18:07:15
Quick question for the Eds, Has well as using the Coutinho fee to buy a replacement is their any chance we might try sign young Sessegnon from fulham (even if we loan him back) . He could prove as shrewd an investment has Coutinho was. Thanks in advance and for all the hard work you do.

Dub Jim

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any likelihood of us moving for him as I believe Spurs are intent on him as replacing Rose and they will be happy with a loan back deal.}


1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:20:25
Thanks for the reply, that's a shame I love the thought of having him on one side and TAA on the other weather it be full backs, wing backs or maybe even wingers in the future. It would have been nice.

What an amazing season its been, regardless of the result in two weeks time it feels like were building something really special so roll on next season and I can't wait to see who we sign. Just wanna say a big thank you to all the EDs for their hard work over the season.

Dub Jim

{Ed025's Note - your very welcome jim..


1.) 13 May 2018 18:19:32
Ed025 best Everton supporter EVER!

{Ed025's Note - thanks barry, but i fear that im turning into a liverpool supporter mate...nah that wont happen will it?.. :)


2.) 13 May 2018 18:33:13
Agree with that dub Jim, we’ve qualified for the champs league again and so hopefully we will the players we want to keep, be able to attract the types of players we need and we can go into the final without the added pressure that we have to win it to qualify. Win or lose in 2 weeks the club is on a strong footing to move forward and the final is a free hit at a trophy. Fingers crossed for a couple of weeks of good training, no injuries and a safe and enjoyable trip for all those lucky enough to be there. What a great way to end a season and what a great feeling for the players to know they’ll get to experience a champions league final, the rest is up to them.


3.) 13 May 2018 18:38:20
Ed25 don't worry we won't judge you if you do just shows you have finally seen the light ;)

{Ed025's Note - that can never happen alonso, but i am in awe of how the team play mate i have to be honest..


4.) 13 May 2018 19:11:03
Ed025 good to see an opposing fan appreciate the football we are playing. i take my hat off to you. now can u lend them un non rose tinted glasses to the United fans please.

{Ed025's Note - most of them are decent guys you know bigsqueeze, there will always be knob heads at all clubs but i know a lot of them respect your teams style of play, i will be rooting for you in the final and im sure a lot of non liverpool supporters will be too, dont get me wrong i wont be wearing anything red or singing any songs but i will certainly be cheering when you score and when you lift that trophy, a lot of my friends and 2 sons are reds and im sure if roles were reversed they would do the same mate...chance being a fine thing..


5.) 13 May 2018 20:18:31
Top man, Ed25. I have always admired your candor and honesty esp. as a blue. I hope The Scam gets the boot cos you guys deserve much better than that scam-artist.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too mate..


6.) 13 May 2018 22:27:23
Honestly ed25 if your shower was in the auto windscreen final id hope you got leathered. Sorry mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats fine ben and im sure your not alone mate..


7.) 14 May 2018 09:23:34
Ed025 👌👌👌👌👌👌.

Question for one of the Eds please?
We got a few yellow cards last nite and im just wondering if any of our players are close to getting suspended? Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed001's Note - I believe the slates are wiped clean.}


1.) 11 Apr 2018 15:24:24
They are cleaned.

Question for Ed001
Do you expect Milner and Lallana to be sold in the summer? Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed001's Note - both? No. One is very likely to go.}


1.) 20 Mar 2018 12:35:25
I'd guess that's milner ed01? Would I guess right or has it not been determined which yet?

{Ed001's Note - could be either. Both are not really looking to stay, Milner because he wants to play regularly and realises he might have to step down to get regular football. Lallana has never wanted a long term stay and has constantly said about not retiring with us etc and Klopp wants committed players.}


2.) 20 Mar 2018 13:18:27
That's sad to hear about lallana. I have admired him for years and was really pleased when we signed him. I have been defending him here for the last few weeks too.

Thanks for your reply ed01 mate, I, as a fan, don't want any players here who don't want to be. I can understand milner, he has records to break regarding Pl appearances etc but lallana has a great opportunity of making our first team, does he prefer playing in midfield or in a more attacking role I wonder. Coz if its an attacking role he is going to find it hard to break into our front 3. That said, he is the perfect player to cover the wide men.


3.) 20 Mar 2018 13:49:21
I would say Lallana's days have been numbered since we signed Naby Keita. Lallana, like Henderson, has spent way too much time in his LFC career in the treatment room. Great technician but not robust or direct enough for Klopp's team.

The time was always going to come for Milner to move on to get first team football in his final throes. Model professional and did brilliantly at left back when called upon last season. I suppose the signing of Ox will backfill for him in the squad.

The position I worry about the most is Hendo's. His injury seems to be a real issue and we would be foolish going into next season with only an Emre replacement in that position.


4.) 20 Mar 2018 16:48:09
All should go imo. We need to get off from this emotional backlog! Milner and Lallana are bang average and should go. They are to be replaced by better players. c'mon people we are not a mid table club anymore! So bye bye midtable players!


5.) 20 Mar 2018 18:45:04
If I had to keep one, I'd take Milner over Lallana any day. Milner's a harder worker, he can cover more positions, and despite not being able to do Cruyff turns as beautifully as Lallana does, he's got a mean cross in him and creates more chances.


6.) 20 Mar 2018 18:46:22
I don't think Milner will be here next season cos with Naby and Ndidi or Jorginho maybe coming in, it will only reduce his chances that were already slim coming into this season. Lallana may leave as well if he refuses to be part of the midfield rotation which is fine with me.


7.) 21 Mar 2018 07:56:04
Lallana is bang average. Is that a joke? Km iI keep saying it but it doesn't seem to go in. Remember when he was last fit? He was one of our best players. Him, coutinio and mane were the stand out players last season. That was only 10 months ago. You are judging him on recent performances when klopp is just easing him back on, He is no where near match sharp. He plays well in the big games too and Is a brilliant tackler for a guy his size. I think your being a bit unfair about milner too. He has been one of the stand out players in our champions league campaign, he us a top player with Pl medals, he's been at the top of the game for 15 years. That's pretty incredible. The guy deserves respect. Call him a model professional then slate him, nah, he has sacrificed his game to play lb and tucked away some big penalties. I will always respect him for the way he has conducted himself at Liverpool. If he goes then thanks for your experience, it was key to our champions league campaign. Good luck.

I'd like to keep lallana. If you want to win trophies you need more than 11 good Players, you need a good squad, we should be keeping players with quality. Lallana no doubt has quality, if you can't see that then I really can't help you, go back and look at some of his clips and remember the magic he bought to Liverpool. Class Player, if he leaves I hope its outside the Premier league.


8.) 21 Mar 2018 11:51:25
I don't really get why Milner would want to drop down a level to get regular first team football. He is playing regularly enough for us. Sure he might play a proportionally higher number of available games at a smaller team but in terms of the actual number of games per season, it could be more or less the same. We have European games to offer as well as a greater chance of having a longer domestic cup run (albeit not this season lol) .

Added to that there is the prospect of winning things and taking part in truly memorable matches. Milner started the Porto game - why would he want to swap a night like that for a potential relegation battle? He has also retired at international level so it is not like he needs to start every game in order to get into the England squad.

I notice a lot of players at bigger clubs do this and often it seems like it's as broad as it's long due to the extended fixture lists they have.

Like so much of Egypt's treasures Mo Salah was stolen and taken to England. What a player.

Dub Jim

1.) 17 Mar 2018 19:36:49
Slight Jealous👀. nearly 40 goals scored, from the wing and still 2 months of the season left, my word he is an astonishing player. Its the quality of the goals he's scored aswell, not just tap-ins, first goal today was reminiscent of Messi's vs Bayern.


2.) 17 Mar 2018 20:55:49
He’s outstanding Scholes, I hope the player of the season awards are not dominated by City players. 28 league goals and 9 assists thus far, I think he deserves it. The City players are all part of an outstanding team that get the best out of each other, Mo at times has simply just done it all on his own.

I do hope he perseveres with us for 2 more seasons, if we don’t deliver trophies for him by then he is entitled to look for a move.


3.) 17 Mar 2018 22:01:36
Think he just about deserves it over KDB, both been wonderful but Salah edges it.


4.) 17 Mar 2018 22:22:22
KDB has been playing in the PL for 3 seasons while this is Salah's first REAL season as a true starter in the PL and at this moment, he should win it cos he is accomplishing things that took veteran players like KDB, Kane and Aguero, several years to do and accomplish.

Q for Ed2
Regarding this break away league (sorry im sure your sick thus already) is there anything to stop the cubs who leave for the new European league from buying small teams near them and use them has a feeder club? Couldn't Man utd buy (example Bury) put them in matching kits with diff sponsors send all their youths their and potentially play their games in old Trafford to maximise returns? Because a 16-team euro league would only be 30 games a season 15 home games initially, its not a lot for fans. And if that is a possibility wouldn't it be better to leave them in the prem and let them effectively run two different teams? If the FA restricted them to only field 3 foreign players or all home-grown players, it could benefit home nations? It all sounds horrible whatever happens im just thinking out loud really. Thanks in advance.

Dub Jim

{Ed002's Note - Unfortunately Jim the rules block that as they stand. It was thought that a possible option to move in that direction might have resulted from a potential landmark decision that UEFA were to make in June or July 2017 - and that could have facilitated the ownership of lower-tier sides by the more senior sides and then work as a feeder club. However – the need to make that decision was avoided so there is no change just yet. But eventually it will need to be allowed or clubs will start going down the pan. Two things which certainly would not happen is Bury taking Manchester United place in the PL and the stadium issue is one that has already been addressed by the group of teams in response to a question asked by Celta Vigo in response to (a) whether the Real Madrid and Barcelona "B" sides would be allowed promotion to La Liga if both sides departed, and (b) if they would be allowed to move from their existing stadia and move in to the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou.}


1.) 11 Feb 2018 15:16:44
Thanks for the reply Ed
I didn't mean a feeder club taking their place in the league I just mean if they had a feeder club that feeder club would eventually end up in the premier league. And also would the previous rules not apply to them anymore if they broke away? Would they not be out on their own in regards to the FA or UEFA?

{Ed002's Note - There would be no provision to do it - no one is looking to try and cheat the system.}


2.) 11 Feb 2018 15:34:40
Great ED002 thanks
Could I just get your expert opinion on one final matter, If their was a backlash across Europe and the vast majority of fans boycotted it, would it make any difference? Thanks for all your work.

{Ed002's Note - The fans welcome it Jim. A number of the clubs have spoken with their fan groups and, aside from one who have said they won't be joing the league, it has been well received.}


3.) 11 Feb 2018 20:56:28
What fans Ed? Do Liverpool fans? Liverpool fans crave for their club to be competing with the best yet when you suggest that the club might not even be invited you just expect Liverpool fans on here to simply embrace the idea as a wonderful one and just get over it? It's an absolutely terrible idea that will suck the soul right out of football, it's only a good idea to those with dollar signs in their eyes.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, where did I say all of that?}


4.) 12 Feb 2018 02:16:51
Things you have suggested:

- breakaway league is a good idea
- Liverpool likely won't be involved
- you want everyone to be supposedly reasonable and embrace it because it "makes financial sense" and is supposedly the way forward. Fat chance Ed.


5.) 12 Feb 2018 09:54:15
Think you ve made part 1 and 3 up Nicky. Don’t recall ed giving his opinion on whether it was a good idea, asked no one to embrace it and just said the facts. Yes it probably would make financial sense for those involved. No need to throw your toys out of your Pram.

No TIA im suggesting that if were gona lose a 17 year old whos done nothing in senior football, then we try and use him to get something we do want and someone who does want to play for us. Granted its very unlikely but all im saying is could be worth a try!

Question for Ed002 please?
What can we has fans of you and the site do to get you to change your mind? The site just isn't the same without your input! But I do love the work all the Eds do (not a dig at them) Were richer as football fans for all the information you share and I really miss your knowledge but respect your decision.
