I've just seen an article linking us with Ryan Fraser. I know a few other big clubs have been monitoring him (Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U, Everton) .

Are we now in the running for him? Also, wasn't he this season highest chance creator? (And yes, I'm aware that it's quantity and not quality of chances) .

I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about this.

EpicPotato

1.) 24 May 2019 17:50:09
These rumours been going around for a few days. Yes I think after Hazard was top assists. I have never really watched him much and think there are better options out there.

Arsenal favourites to sign him.


2.) 24 May 2019 17:51:20
I don't think we have any serious interest in him, more effective as a winger then a CAM. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arsenal or Spurs make a move, though probably as a second choice or if their budget is stretched thin from picking up a couple players.

Ed002 said he hadn't heard anything about a Liverpool offer but mentioned him as a possible target on the arsenal page and said "Ryan Fraser (LW) has the advantage of being home grown".


3.) 24 May 2019 18:00:27
I’m not sure on the stat, but if he created a chance, I think it’s like created a shot, so I think that denotes quality. Maybe with a more clinical striker he would have got more assists. Again, it’s a stat that looks good, but means very little.

I think mane got three assists this year, and 22 goals. That would suggest he is selfish. but he’s far from it.


4.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
We could do a lot worse imo, looked good this season when I watched him.


5.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
Thanks for your replies, guys.

He certainly doesn't sound like the worst player we could be linked with. And if he's a left sided winger he'd offer a good rotation option considering that Mane played on the right before we signed Salah.

I guess it's just a "wait and see".


6.) 24 May 2019 18:58:11
He had a fantastic season, always remember him coming on against us and turning the game in their favour when they beat us 4-3!

Don't know if he has the quality we need but seems a Klopp type of player with pace to burn and good work ethic.


7.) 24 May 2019 22:23:10
Bit of a Liverpool fan as well by all accounts.


8.) 25 May 2019 01:23:10
I'd be happy to get Fraser he's a pest and would buy into the work rate that Jurgen demands also played with Robertson at international level . He's certainly got something about him on the pitch and doesn't seem to have a massive ego.


9.) 25 May 2019 06:01:34
Can anyone name a player we've been linked with who isn't a 'Liverpool fan'?

{Ed025's Note - gareth bale..


10.) 25 May 2019 09:10:59
Reminds me of the transfer of Charlie Adam. I'd look else where.


11.) 25 May 2019 11:09:23
magico. Because he's Scottish?

He's nothing like Charlie Adam in any way apart from that.


12.) 25 May 2019 13:54:42
About the same level if you ask me. hardly stands out in an average team. so in my opinion he isn't good enough. Each to their own.


13.) 25 May 2019 16:17:30
Descent player.


14.) 25 May 2019 21:08:56
Could be a all Scottish left side with and robbo and Fraser, be excellent edition to our squad at a reasonable price.


15.) 26 May 2019 04:46:12
I wouldn't mind him. He'd be like Robbo, Milner and Hendo when it comes to work rate and not being a flashy player but getting the job done.

If the price is right then why not :)


16.) 26 May 2019 12:52:52
Ryan frazior has been a phenomenon for Bournemouth this season. He deserves a move to a big club. I think he would suit our style well but id expect a higher profile attacking mid if we sign one. Arsenal bound sounds aboit right.


 

 

23 May 2019 09:09:13
Good Morning All.

The Echo are reporting that we're close to signing 16 year old Polish Goalkeeper, Jakub Ojrzynski from Legia Warsaw for £200,000.

I know it's no big name or even anywhere near the first team, but a rumour is a rumour, right?

If true, he must be deemed pretty good considering that our current academy goalies are already at a decent standard.

EpicPotato

1.) 23 May 2019 10:22:02
Although much is expected of him, he's being bought to join the under 18s as competition to Jaros.


2.) 23 May 2019 14:21:58
I uh don't think he will get q good opportunity with us unless Alisson leaves. he is 26 now he will play till 34 maybe at really high level by that time the kid will have left us and become 26 year so i wouldn't read much into it. and ed02 has de ligt deal hit a snag? sorry if im being a bother. i understand he won't end up with us. i hope he ends up at Barcelona or madrid or psg nd not in england.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the deal with de Ligt.}


3.) 23 May 2019 14:54:08
Think we need to De Ligt that question livebird, we all know that he is not coming Klopp isn’t interested.

Re goalkeepers, we don’t know what will happen in 5 years time, Allison may want to move somewhere else, it’s all about planning for the future.


4.) 23 May 2019 15:26:11
I like what you did there southern😂, that pun was DELigtful.


5.) 24 May 2019 09:37:23

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?

EpicPotato

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

1.) 21 Feb 2019 18:12:34
* 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.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 17:39:24
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.

Congratulations to Sheyi Ojo scoring on his debut for Rangers tonight in the Europa League Qualifiers.

Go on lad. I think he's going to really tear it up in the Scottish league.

EpicPotato

1.) 09 Jul 2019 20:27:46
Class goal as well.


2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:01:46
My granny could tear it up in the Scottish League.

But seriously, he scored in a couple of friendlies as well, although of course they've only faced very weak opponents so far.
Even still, I actually expect him to outscore Kent's 18/ 19 haul this season, which shouldn't be too difficult considering 6 goals in 43 games isn't much at all. But if it increases their value and helps get them a move and a career somewhere, then it's all good.


3.) 10 Jul 2019 11:02:20
he has scored in every game he has played (incl friendlies)


Gerrard put in perfectly, we all know he has the tools to become a decent player, its whether he can work hard and apply himself to actually get to that stage.


 

 

28 Jun 2019 10:45:15
Camacho has been sold to Sporting Lisbon for an initial 5 million, rising to 7 million with add-ons.

There's also a 20% sell on fee been negotiated and a back back clause (however there's no mention of that clause's value) .

Good luck to the lad.

EpicPotato

1.) 28 Jun 2019 11:54:02
Well said epic p. The lad has talent, has shown he is an attacking player and if that's what he is determined to do then fair play to him.
That said, i can see why klopp thought he'd make a good rb, in a similar mould to trent.


2.) 28 Jun 2019 12:11:36
another Edwards masterclass.


3.) 28 Jun 2019 16:04:17
Love Edwards but selling a player who has not played for his value isnt a master class.


4.) 28 Jun 2019 16:06:05
How is selling a good young player a masterclass? He should have been given a run in the first team or a proper loan where he would get regular game time.


5.) 28 Jun 2019 16:11:44
Instead of who?


6.) 28 Jun 2019 17:18:03
Edward's isn't the manager Mattie 4.


7.) 28 Jun 2019 17:20:04
Cmon mattie if he was good enough he would of got his chance Robbo and Trent are proof of that names and price tags mean nothing ask Matip . No time for tosspot posts mate get out and enjoy the sunshine fella. Come down the prom mate ( otterspool) al buy ya a bevy.


8.) 28 Jun 2019 19:41:47
How can anyone say he is not good enough when he was been played out of position! He should have gotten the game time that Lallana got even though it was small Camacho would have been more reliable.
Obviously Edwards isnt the manager but how could selling a player for 5 million be a masterclass? he just bought a 17 year old defender for 1.5 million.


9.) 28 Jun 2019 21:03:25
You are speaking from a position of ignorance Mattie. I'm pretty sure Klopp will know if Camacho was good enough or indeed more reliable than Lallana.


10.) 29 Jun 2019 12:47:40
Mattie if you have the same information Klopp and the coaching staff has on Camacho's performances and development over the years then you are free to prove us all wrong as to if Camacho was indeed good enuff for the LFC first team. If the answer is no then all you have is an opinion, which are not facts esp. if that opinion is being formulated from a position of ignorance.


11.) 29 Jun 2019 13:39:31
Then why would Klopp promise him game time and the club offered him a new contract? He should have at least been given pre season to see if he could offer anything in the attacking positions.


 

 

24 Jun 2019 18:02:39
I've just read an article about one of our old academy graduates Toni Silva. Saying that he's really struggling and wanting to quit football and that he's been really badly advised by agents just chasing money and advising him on moves that never worked out.

It says that he was thought of as a better prospect than Sterling and the coach at the time advising Sterling to "do it like Toni does".

Eds or anyone else that knew about his situation. What went wrong for him. Did his head get too big for his boots, was his attitude a problem, or his lifestyle? It was quite a heartbreaking read, really.

I remember his name from the academy, but knew very little about him.

EpicPotato

{Ed001's Note - as I remember it he has a good point about the agent being a dick and advising him badly, but he also did get a bit too big for his boots (partly because of the agents). It was Sterling who said recently in an interview that he was told to "do it like Toni does" by the way.

His attitude and the agents combined to put him in a place he should not be. He was a huge prospect but he could still have made it if he had knuckled down and got on with it.}


1.) 24 Jun 2019 19:19:20
That's a real shame. I always wondered why he left. I watch a lot of u18s and 23s on lfc TV have done for years. And remember telling my mates, we have 2 players sterling and lad Silva who are brilliant for age. Silva was brilliant dribbler and could change a game in seconds. Although I always maintain sterling was the better prospect.


2.) 24 Jun 2019 19:36:33
Suso looked the best prospect during that time. If it doesn't work out at one club hard work and determination will get you back on track I believe. The thing is there is to much money in the game so young players have there heads turned far to often nowadays.


3.) 24 Jun 2019 23:18:29
Suso was unreal at 16 in the u18s. Had really high hopes for him. When Chirivela first arrived I had high hopes too. Can see him being a reasonable player still too but probably will leave us.


4.) 25 Jun 2019 02:13:31
Didn't Suso debut as a sub v United? Think he came on earlyish due to an injury and looked the part straight away.


5.) 25 Jun 2019 09:40:55
I guess you are talking about the game where Shelvey was red carded. That day we were a far better team even with 10 players, and Suso had a great game.


6.) 25 Jun 2019 14:40:56
Thanks for the reply Ed001. I went out not long after I posted it and completely forgot about it until now.

{Ed001's Note - no worries EP, just glad you got it.}


 

 

08 May 2019 11:29:22
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.}

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.

SG4EVA. With Coutinho in the team, we may have won a game or two that we drew, but some of those 1-0 and 2-1 wins were down to having 11 players completely grafting for the cause.

What I'm saying is that we may have won one of those draws, but also dropped other points due to him taking another valuable member's place.

Who would you have him play instead of? Mane? Henderson? Wijnaldum? He doesn't have anywhere near the level of commitment that those bring to our team.

A 2 year loan with an option to buy at the end of the loan would just be ridiculous from Barcelona's point of view. As a player he seems to be in decline.

So if he's worth £88 million now, he'll be worth less at the end of the loan in 2 years time. I also cannot see where he would fit into this Liverpool team.

I think they're stuck with Coutinho for the time being. There's only a handful of clubs than can afford him, and I don't think any of them are interested.

I think the only viable destination this summer is Manchester United, but he's already ruled himself out of that move. Maybe Chelsea in a year. Or maybe they can offload him to PSG as part of a deal for Neymar.

I know it was only a preseason game against Tranmere, but Wilson was not the highlight feature. Kent looked just as good if not better when they were on the pitch together. Ryan Kent didn't half put a shift in.

Alonso, Robertson, Hyypia, Coutinho, VVD.

You simply can't leave Coutinho out. Not just for how much of a good player he was for us but the massive profit we made on him. We signed him for £8.5 million.
