The first time I've heard of this linked player.

I've just read that we're interested in bringing in Norwich defender Ben Godfrey for £10m.

Anyone know anything about him or seen him play?

Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.

EpicPotato

* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!


2.) 21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.


3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.


4.) 23 Feb 2019 14:21:18
👀 . You're slipping Zed.

I've just read on BBC's deadline day updates that Ben Woodburn isn't going back out on loan.

I find that a bit strange, as surely his minutes will be limited in our first team squad.

EpicPotato

1.) 31 Jan 2019 19:50:45
He was doing well training and playing under the Liverpool system of play, at whichever level. Maybe that's what he needs more of, in order to develop and grow rather than go elsewhere, learn a new system and just sit on the bench? Guess it's a decision made by the coaching staff and they think something along these lines.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:17:10
He could have a macheda moment for us.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 20:52:58
Klopp said he wouldn't go anywhere unless there were game time guarantees. Rightly so. Woodburn might as well fight for a place in our team, rather than someone else's. Klopp said he got impatient before, so hopefully Ben realises now that loan moves are not beneficial 9 times out of 10. He should stay at Liverpool where he can learn from world class players and coaches.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 21:04:43
I would rather see Woodburn come on for the last 20 minutes of the game than Lallana.


5.) 01 Feb 2019 05:37:24
I think we are anyway short off alternatives to Mane on the left inside-forward role, which is where Woodburn plays from. I am hoping to see him get some minutes off the bench over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed for the lad - if even one of him and Brewster come good over the next 12 months or so, it will be a big win for us as a club.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 09:35:53
Dont see Woodburn or Brewster getting any game time this season. The club look to be taking it slow to get brewster ready for a good preseaon and it seems to be that klopp prefers to have the older players like Sturridge and Lallana in the matchday squads.

If it was up to me if they are training well I would give them a shot off the bench, up to them to take the the chance as at the moment Sturridge and Lallana are not taking there chance from the bench.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:32
I think Brewster will go on to be a good player for us but I can't see woodburn making it, not good enough IMO.


 

 

24 Jan 2019 19:40:32
Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Liverpool have enquired about Brescia's 18 year old midfielder Sandro Tonali. Apparently Roma are interested too and he's supposed to be highly rated.

Anyone or any of the Eds heard anything or know anything about him?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - It was a while back and the interest has gone. There has been various levels of interest from several other sides as well.}


1.) 24 Jan 2019 20:24:50
As always, thank you very much Ed002.


2.) 26 Jan 2019 10:02:16
This guy is like Pirlo but better at dribbling.


3.) 26 Jan 2019 11:26:33
Best steer clear then. Pirlo was dreadfully over rated. When his team didn't have the ball they basically had 10 men.


4.) 26 Jan 2019 12:05:09
That’s like saying Henry was overrated because he couldn’t head the ball very well. Not all greats are great everything. Pirlo is the player Jorginho wishes he could be.

{Ed001's Note - depends on which point in Pirlo's career you are referring to. In his early days he was known for running with the ball. At the end of his career when playing deep, he was massively overrated because of what he did when his laziness was masked by having hardworking midfielders doing all the work for him.}


5.) 26 Jan 2019 17:05:30
In my defence Ed001, I don't remember the early part of Pirlo's career! I just saw the last 12 years from when he was in his late 20's, where he stood in the centre circle spraying passes, took set pieces, and then left his team mates to win it back and give it to him. At times it looked like he was deliberately positioning himself to not have to make a tackle! I certainly wouldn't want that player that I saw in this team.

Henry couldn't head the ball very well. But that is not a vital trait for a striker of his ilk. Putting in a bit of effort defensively is a pretty vital trait for a holding midfielder I think!


6.) 27 Jan 2019 20:31:38
Rumour on Twitter from a reliable guy I follow has said we have opened talks with Brescia for this guy.

{Ed002's Note - Certianly Liverpool enquired a while ago - game time will be a major issue.}


 

 

30 Dec 2018 20:27:06
I've just read that Liverpool are interested in Trabzonspor's 19 year old Turkish attacking midfielder Abdulkadir Omur. Does anyone on here or the Eds know anything about him? Apparently City want him too.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Trabzonspor's Abdulkadir Omur is subject of sustained interest from Bayern Munich and FC Nürnberg and both were looking to trying to strike some sort of deal for him once he turned 18 but he signed a professional contract with Trabzonspor. Bayern did however make what they considered to be a very significant offer for the player that proved to be unacceptable. Atletico Madrid also made an offer in the summer that would see him stay in Trabzonspor until the summer of 2019 if an agreement could be agreed between the parties - but this included only a small upfront payment and was deemed unacceptable. Benfica, Manchester City, Roma, Arsenal and Monaco are some of the clubs the Turkish club say have watched him but much interest has now drifted away as he would no longer be able to qualify as being home grown away from Turkey. I am not aware of Liverpool interest but suggest if it has come from the Turkish media they have included the club as interest as they always do.}


1.) 30 Dec 2018 20:47:59
Thank you for the detailed response Ed002. With the amount and pedigree of clubs interested suggests that he has talent, but yes, it's the Turkish Newspaper "Fotomac" that has reported it.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Klopp will again try to sign Marco Ascensio from Real Madrid. Have you heard anything about this Eds?

I struggle to see where he fits in as he's not alike any player we have. Maybe he could be an option if we're looking to mix up our tactics a bit.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Real Madrid for Marco Ascensio and whilst there has been interest from Inter and was offered as part of a deal with an English side, the player has said he does not want to leave and that is also the position of Florentino Perez.}


1.) 08 May 2019 11:57:02
I know he is over rated in ed01s eyrs and i can't really comment because i haven't seen THAT much of him. But i have seen him play well and he has a high reputation.

Personally i don't think we should be signing any players from barca, real or juve. The so called "ego" teams. Our strength is in our team. We sign playersvfrom hull and newcastle and get to cl finals.


2.) 08 May 2019 11:57:13
Morning ed. Liverpool getting to another final and especially if we win the cl, does this effect players wanting to jump ship?

I would imagine also it does no harm in attracting players.

{Ed002's Note - The players who want to leave are the youngsters who don't see themselves getting a chance, particularly with the change of purchasing policy, plus Salah - but nobody is interested (for a couple of reasons). So it will not make a difference in any major way.}


3.) 08 May 2019 12:11:21
I fully understand what you have been saying regarding youngers. If we have 2 players in front of them they have to leave for their own career. Like you mentioned if we sign another lb then I agree Lewis should push to leave.

No point buying a cf as Brewster will not no game time.

Thanks as always.


4.) 08 May 2019 12:12:51
Thank you very much for the reply Ed002. It did seem a strange one for me.


5.) 08 May 2019 12:15:08
But also Ed002 with the club doing well in the league and another CL final be more attractive to players that wouldn't normally want to join Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, most definately but space needs to be made in the squad for new players and then any "marquee" players will require guarantees of game time, or the high-profile players will need to make way.}


6.) 08 May 2019 12:33:01
Let the good times roll.


7.) 08 May 2019 12:44:01
Hi Ed002, interesting comments. Do you think we continue to make mistakes in our youth development policy? And, if you'll indulge us, what positives (if any) have you observed about Liverpool's development as a team and brand over the last three years?

NB I realise you're incredibly busy. and with the end of season coming up it'll only get worse for you so feel free to ignore ;)

{Ed002's Note - The problems with the younger players is no peculiar to Liverpool but is made worse by the policy change. The brand is doing OK but the club is still in partnership with a number of businesses which do not have an acceptable profile to many.}


 

 

08 May 2019 11:36:43
Any news on how Robbo is?

EpicPotato

1.) 08 May 2019 11:52:00
Pretty certain he'll play both of our last 2 games.

He was hewn out of Scottish granite mixed with Irn Bru and a couple of ginger nuts, so I'm sure he'll be absolutely fine!


2.) 08 May 2019 11:52:46
Expected to have a scan I think.


3.) 08 May 2019 12:01:23
You left out girders Zeddicus.


4.) 08 May 2019 11:59:36
Robbo and Mane my 2 favourites. Robbo seems a top guy and he gives his absolute max in every game. Pundits are calling him the best left back in the league and it is hard to disagree. If anyone could be first it would be Robbo.


5.) 08 May 2019 12:28:18
I like Robbo but what he did to Messi yesterday was stupid, in a game that VAR is active, the referee if he was in a different mood, could've easily referred it to VAR and they could've deemed it aggressive and he would've been sent off and we would've been down to 10 men after just 4 minutes . It would've been a different result.


6.) 08 May 2019 12:46:00
When I read Zed said last TWO games, I think I jizzed.


7.) 08 May 2019 12:56:59
Roy, is ruffling a guy’s hair really a red card offence? And I thought it was for the VAR official to refer such incidents to the referee, not the other way round. I kind of like that referee - if I’m not mistaken we had him for the Dortmund game in 2016 - and he doesn’t strike me as the type to overreact.


8.) 08 May 2019 13:18:12
I have that effect on people, LFC8 - can't say I'm entirely delighted about it and it has led to awkward situations, but I do have that effect on people!


9.) 08 May 2019 14:15:12
Roy, is ruffling a guy’s hair really a red card offence?
=====================================================
I don't think so, no . But we have seen red cards given for a lot less, my point there was no need taking risks, particularly in the first 5 minutes.
I agree with you on the referee, he is good, he managed the game really well . remember him managing the City spurs game well with all its VAR drama etc.


10.) 08 May 2019 14:25:14
How Robbo is, let me count the ways. What's the very best adjective in the English language? I don't think it'd do him justice.


11.) 08 May 2019 14:49:26
Roy, your point makes no sense. If what you say about Robbo's incident with Messi was true, then Vidal, Cou and Suarez (who was whinding up Fab ALL game long) should have been sent off for several off the ball challenges on Fab especially.

VAR is not used just for anything you think it should be used for. There are things it can review and things it CANNOT review. For example, the incidents I mentioned are things the ref or linesmen should be able to see. If they did NOT see it then sorry for your luck, it did NOT happen.

Only 10 minutes in, but I'd say this is game on. Leicester look properly up for it.

EpicPotato

1.) 06 May 2019 20:36:02
I'm getting less hopeful the more I watch. They've not threatend much since early on.


2.) 06 May 2019 20:40:56
recently teams have done well against city first half then go on to roll over next half so just give it till second half and normal service shall resume unfortunately.


3.) 06 May 2019 20:44:37
I think Leicester are handling them pretty well. City are bound to go for it, they need to but all it'll take is that crucial counter attack from Leicester, I still believe.


4.) 06 May 2019 20:50:15
Last thing Leicester needed was half time
City normally come out flying - I’d go for 1-0 up inside 55mins.


5.) 06 May 2019 20:52:50
I'm not watching. I'm going to watch Line Of Duty in a bit. I need some light entertainment and I said my prayers on Sunday.


6.) 06 May 2019 21:16:43
Oh god, I hope Brendan has learnt to defend 🙈😂.


7.) 06 May 2019 21:18:06
I’ve got 55 mins in and can’t watch anymore 🙈.


8.) 06 May 2019 21:28:58
It’s all over.


9.) 06 May 2019 21:30:21
well at least we can stop watching it now. there's a sign its yet again not our year. when does kompany score.


10.) 06 May 2019 21:32:20
Wow, gut punch for us, but wow. What a hit that was. Hats off that was a stunner, and if that ultimately wins them the league then fair play. That was a goal and a half.


11.) 06 May 2019 21:32:27
It's not over til it's over.


12.) 06 May 2019 21:34:59
The man who should have been sent off against us for a reckless challenge on Salah scores the goal which wins them the league,

I haven't seen this posted and only just realised by looking at the table.

Massive congratulations to the boys for being the first team to secure Champions League football for next season.

Even if we lose every game from now on, we still have Champions League next season.

Big congrats to the everyone in the squad and backroom.

If Depay signed for Liverpool and was a massive success it would be such a slap in the face for Manchester United supporters, similar to how Salah's success must really grate on Chelsea fans.

I've watched him at Berlin, and he'd definitely be an asset to have around. IB, you say he won't wan't to come back if he's not first choice? Many players would be happy not to be first choice if there's silverware involved. Let's just hop that we have just as impressive season next time.

You'd be surprised how people drop their demands for guaranteed playing time when you've reached two Chamions League Semi Finals in two years (the only team in Europe, btw. ) and are within a pinch of winning the most competitive league in the world.

I'd assume the contract talks will involve a pay cut. You have to remember that he's on higher wages than normal due to him being signed on a free.

MK, he might have played across the front three but he's not in anyway similar to any of our front three. The wide players use their pace to get central and our no.9 drops deep to allow them space.

I can't see Kruse fulfilling either of those roles as effectively as we'd need him to.

I guess a lot of it will be down to how they deal with the end of Aguero's Man City career. If they can do some creative accounting and bring in Mbappe, then we can say goodbye to the league for a few years.

If they turn to anyone else then it's game on for the next few years. I just think that Mbappe is at a crazy level and whoever signs him will be at a massive advantage as he's so so good and very young so is only going to get better.

Unfortunately, he'll not be moving to Liverpool. I just pray that City won't sign him.

I guess for some players, they'd rather have Liverpool U23 for 3 years on their CV than 3 years at Brackley Town.

I guess it's down to that and where they believe they will develop better.

If Juanma gets a contract at Middlesborough or West Brom, then I'd think that he's done OK and better than if he'd have started playing at a low level team.

Of course, it's all guesswork really though.

Aouar was linked before the winter transfer window but it went quiet on him after that. We've been linked with Fekir for a long time now.

Depay just seems to be the flavour of the month rumour at the moment. I've seen us linked with Dembele on other sites. I actually think that Dembele would be a very worthwhile target if we didn't have Brewster knocking on the door of the first team, but I doubt we'd look to Dembele as he'd completely block the way for Rhian.

Nafe01, I'd argue that it's more of an achievement to come second in the league than be a cup runner up.

You can fluke (I'm not saying Watford did, though) getting to the final of the FA Cup. You can't really fluke coming 2nd in the league.
