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.}


 

 

27 Dec 2018 20:13:21
I've just read that Alberto Moreno is claiming that he has been offered a new contract at Liverpool but he hasn't decided whether to sign it yet. Does anyone know anything about this? Eds? Surely if he has been offered a contact, it would be on severely lower wages. He's only played twice all season.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - The wages are of no relevance but the role is to provide cover. The supporters seem to be struggling with all of these €100M players they want as squad players are not viable. If he agrees a new contract fine, else he will be replaced by someone else who will only likely play a handful of games a year.}


1.) 27 Dec 2018 20:37:12
Ed002, thank you so much for your input. I was shocked when I read the article, but I guess it's just because I'd imagined he'd be one of the first out of the door in the summer. Signing players of any quality who are prepared to be backup must be very difficult and any potential incoming left back will be very aware that Robertson will be very hard to shift. I hope you're enjoying the holiday and have a great new year. Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Actually I do expect he will go and Liverpool will look elsewhere, perhaps to the likes of Lewis, Gallacher and any other youngsters who are looking like possibilities. Else, the youngsters will know that without a roadmap they stand little chance. There was another kid whose nmame I cannot recall.}


2.) 27 Dec 2018 21:18:42
Arroyo?


3.) 27 Dec 2018 20:50:36
Anderson Arroyo by any chance Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - That's the one, thanks.}


4.) 27 Dec 2018 23:03:59
Funny reading this conversation about moreno and robertson. This time a year and a half ago never would i think we have got the best left back in europe.


5.) 28 Dec 2018 00:14:03
I read a different article that didn’t mention anything about a new deal.

More that he was tiered of the cold weather he was unhappy with his treatment and considered moving to Spain. It stated he was free to talk to clubs in January and free to leave in summer.

I can’t see us offering him one as we have a few good youngsters who can play the role of cover for much cheaper.


6.) 28 Dec 2018 01:36:30
We have several academy players like Lewis and gallacher that can step up to replace Moreno. No point wasting money on a backup lb just to play around 7-8 games a season coz Robbo is a machine.


7.) 28 Dec 2018 01:39:42
Jonesred, he's quoted as saying he was offered a new contract.

{Ed001's Note - he has been offered one.}


8.) 28 Dec 2018 02:55:40
Juanma is 20 (? ) but injuries have set back his progress. The others are only 19 so we shouldn't be expecting too much from them.


9.) 28 Dec 2018 04:54:45
Honest question for Ed0001:

WHY?
Does Klopp's have no faith in any of the youth left backs? Giving Moreno a new contract is just waste of money for a player who contributes zilch and plays 5 times a season. The money, game time and senior football exposure could be used to groom one of the youth players to play second fiddle to Robbo.

{Ed001's Note - the plan is to free up any seen as close from the youth team to go out on loan.}


10.) 28 Dec 2018 05:58:50
Never understood the situation with Moreno. It was obvious a long time ago he was not good enough to be our starting fullback.

So why the snarky interviews now, four and a half years later?

Why was the situation not explained to him a long time, and Moreno not moved on if he didn't like it?

{Ed025's Note - im guessing that nobody would pay the wages he is getting at liverpool R67, he is doing exactly what we all would do mate..


11.) 28 Dec 2018 07:14:49
I think Moreno has done no harm to his stock, he has not been disruptive, worked hard in training and this time last year was our number one left back. I think he will move on in the summer and hope he gets himself a nice new club to play for and plenty of playing time.


12.) 28 Dec 2018 09:34:57
Moreno is a very well liked character around the dressing room apparently and has helped a number of new players settle in.

I do find it slightly odd that we’ve offered him a new contract though.

But what do I know.


13.) 28 Dec 2018 13:05:18
If he goes, then let’s have a youngster step up to cover Robertson. Lewis or Arroyo could make that step.


14.) 28 Dec 2018 19:43:19
We already have 3 players that can cover left back without Moreno.
Milner
Gomez
Clyne
We definitely don't need to sign a replacement.

{Ed002's Note - Plus some well thought of youngsters.}


15.) 28 Dec 2018 21:28:33
Moreno took unbelievable stick from so called fans as a youngster. Some of you have very short memories. The lad has developed well so pay him his dues and allow him the minutes when possible. On another note I mentioned a while ago an update on the ox and regarding his fitness and physio parent. I've heard today that's klopps update is conservative and could b available earlier.


16.) 28 Dec 2018 23:47:34
If moreno has been offered a contract then I feel lile it'd be because the club feel there are few other viable options out there to bring in as a backup and that the academy players need playing time either thru U23 or on loan.


17.) 31 Dec 2018 09:37:51
I read at the weekend that Van Sarn holt may be available
I would definitely take him as a back up as he scores a lot of goals.
We used to have two grest scoring full backs in Lawler and Lyndsay.

{Ed002's Note - Why would Van Aanholt move to simply provide cover? He has a club chasing him who want him as a starter and if they up their bid they might well get him.}


 

 

12 Dec 2018 13:03:09
Rumours this morning that we're going to try to sign Pascal Gross from Brighton for £15m in January. Is there any truth to it, Eds?

From the times I've seen him, he's not someone who particularly stood out.

EpicPotato

{Ed001's Note - he is the key to their attack when he plays mate, fantastic delivery and creates enormous amounts of chances but I have heard of no interest from us.}


1.) 12 Dec 2018 14:50:52
Thanks Ed001. I guess I wasn't really paying much attention to him when I've seen Brighton. It sounds like someone that would be useful in the squad by your description of him. But if he's as crucial as you say to their attacking play, I doubt they'd be able to replace him for the figure quoted. Just passing on what I'd read.


2.) 12 Dec 2018 17:17:32
Stalwart of my Fantasy team last season that guy. Seemed a bit slow in positioning for our system maybe?


 

 

20 Nov 2018 18:28:01
I've just read that Klopp is considering recalling Ben Woodburn from his loan at Sheffield United as he's not getting enough game time. If he did, would you expect he'd go out on another loan or be part of the squad here?

EpicPotato

1.) 20 Nov 2018 21:17:23
I can't see him being part of the squad here personally mate, as much as I'd like to see it, I just can't see it.


2.) 20 Nov 2018 22:25:34
Not sure what’s happened to Woodburn. He seemed destined for the first team at one point but now I could see is moving him on.


3.) 21 Nov 2018 07:45:57
Was reading somewhere, and I'm not sure if this was the Sheffield manager saying this or a media type - but basically they were saying that ben has to earn hos spot and he has to learn he won't be played jist for being ben Woodburn. Also said that team had been doing well without him, and he hasn't exactly been tearing up trees on the training pitch. Maybe it just hasn't clicked for him there or maybe he needs to pull his socks up?


4.) 21 Nov 2018 11:00:40
He’s only just turned 19, let’s not write him off already.


5.) 21 Nov 2018 10:56:49
Can’t understand the logic, if he’s getting recalled due to lack of playing time at a team at a lower level than Liverpool why would anyone expect him to come back into/ around the first team. He’s obviously not getting a game for a reason.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think he will get much if any playing time at Liverpool, but it doesn't mean he is not good enough where he is. Perhaps the style or formation they are playing don't suit him. Perhaps he has not settled well. Plenty of things could be causing this issuette.}


6.) 21 Nov 2018 13:09:39
Agreed Ed2, I rate the lad and at that age he has plenty of time to impress, perhaps he's just got unlucky with this loan, I'd like to see him go elsewhere to see how he gets on because we have to be honest, the lad has a lot of quality but Liverpool quality? Not yet. We don't want him sat here doing bugger all which is how it'd be, I hope to see him go elsewhere on loan for now.


7.) 21 Nov 2018 19:34:39
That would be my preference too, Salah. He was a regular in the Wales squad before his time at Sheffield Utd, but he's now not getting picked due to his lack of playing time. I hope he gets another loan and preferably not Southampton. Maybe Leeds (if he could get game time), Villa or Swansea.

{Ed002's Note - He can't go to Southampton.}


8.) 21 Nov 2018 20:43:06
I agree EpicPotato, Leeds would be a really good option I think.


9.) 23 Nov 2018 22:10:52
Not slaying the lad just meant he’s not playing at Sheffield Utd so can’t see him coming back and getting in when players like Solanke and Origi aren’t having a sniff and I think he’s behind them in this current point in time he has potential And I think he’ll have a very good career but unfortunately I think it will be away from Anfield (hope he proves me wrong)


 

 

15 Nov 2018 09:03:52
Fulham interested in signing Matip in January from what I've been reading.

EpicPotato

1.) 15 Nov 2018 10:41:53
I automatically thought of that post ed001 made recently when a team bought a player for meat.
Matip for a pack of bacon anyone?


2.) 15 Nov 2018 12:58:49
Makes sense for Fulham. But I don't know if we will let him go. We don’t have Klavan anymore, and unless we bring someone in I don’t see us letting our fourth choice CB go.


3.) 15 Nov 2018 13:44:42
Those were my thoughts exactly Klopping. I suppose it depends on how much we could sell him for, and if we could get in someone who was an upgrade and happy to be 4th choice CB for the same or less.

I don't know what his wages are, but I'd imagine them being higher than normal for his quality, considering we signed him on a free transfer.


4.) 15 Nov 2018 13:54:03
27 Years old and for a Fulham team desperate for defenders could see us get a tidy sum for Matip. Would be interesting to see who we would get for 4th choice. Maybe Nat Phillips?


5.) 15 Nov 2018 16:55:13
Swap for sessagnon and it's a deal.


6.) 15 Nov 2018 18:41:34
Walkon, you don't run a car dealership anywhere do you? Cos I'd like to swap a 14 year old MG for a new Merc.

Joking aside, I don't want to be down on our own players, but it doesn't make much sense that Fulham would want Matip. They need a solid defender and leader at the back. Matip isn't really that player, he's arguably better with the ball than without it.


7.) 15 Nov 2018 19:21:51
Something Red, but he's a lot better than the defenders they currently have and also possibly available due to how little game time he gets currently. I can see why they'd be interested. If he started his career there the same way he started his Liverpool career, he'd be a revelation for their defence.

I remembered when he first played, a lot of people on here were praising him like crazy.


8.) 15 Nov 2018 20:23:33
Could happen if the stories about the kid tobido are true maybe?


9.) 16 Nov 2018 00:13:51
Sessegnon hasn’t looked ready this season, he’s best to stay at Fulham where he gets premier league game time.


10.) 18 Nov 2018 01:58:51
I'd happily play Nat Phillips as fourth choice over Matip.

Matip doesn't look confident at all and is too slow for PL and the high line style we play. He's also on something like £70k/ week if I remember well. Not a bad option to sell. I actually used to like Klavan better. Just my opinion.

Arsenal looking to loan out Ozil to Bayern Munich and replace him for the rest of the season with James Rodrigues coming the other way.

When we play Bayern in the Champions League, who would you rather we faced? Ozil or James?

EpicPotato

1.) 16 Jan 2019 21:15:08
James 🤝

Ozil can tear a team apart. James might have 2 or 3 decent moments over 90 minutes.

{Ed001's Note - 90 minutes or 90 games? I think it is more the latter.}


2.) 16 Jan 2019 22:03:34
Nice one, Ed. You are correct, Ron. James all day. Ozil can hurt a team if given any ounce of time on the ball. James? You can sleep easy.


3.) 17 Jan 2019 05:22:10
NEither would hurt us at all. been ages since Ozil has done anything and he is slow, James might do something in our favour making bayern a 10 man team.


4.) 17 Jan 2019 14:11:36
That was exactly my thinking. I'd much rather face James than Ozil. Ozil will no doubt be even more creative with what he'd have around him at Bayern.

It's a pity we've already played Arsenal twice if they're going to lump all their hopes on James. Then again, we didn't do too bad against them.


 

 

14 Jan 2019 10:17:03
I've just read that Liverpool are keen to sign James Forrest of Celtic for £8m. I have literally never seen him play, so I'm asking anyone who has, do you think he's even good enough for Liverpool?

EpicPotato

1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:38:24
When you consider how well he's done, the big question is, why only 8 million? I really don't know enough about him but his stats are very impressive. I've seen him play a few times but can't really comment because I can't say I took too much notice of him specifically.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 10:49:48
Not a bad week player at times other times he goes missing and the game passes him bye. wouldn't be a great move for him or us.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 11:39:18
James Forrest would only be a back up for either Salah or Manè during injuries or rests . The boy has certainly improved under Rodgers that's for sure 3 years ago most Celtic fans only had criticism and disdain for him but he's turned that around . One Celtic fan at work today said "£8M try £18M and you can have him" . Personally I'd be surprised if we went for him but who knows.


4.) 14 Jan 2019 12:01:03
I’d rather us not sign Scottish players for 8 million, it never ends up going well.

{Ed025's Note - love it KK..


5.) 14 Jan 2019 16:45:06
I wouldn't have thought he was up to playing for Liverpool, although he has dramatically improved over the last season and a half. I'd save the money and play Kent as backup, both are having good seasons in the same league.


6.) 14 Jan 2019 18:52:17
Haha, so many down votes. I was only posting what I'd read and asking others what they thought.

It is obvious that it wouldn't be to replace anybody and only to be cover, but after watching the Wolves FA Cup games, it strikes me that we need to be very clever in our recruitment of 2nd string/ fringe players. From what I've read about him, and if he's happy to be backup, it sounds like a good use of £8m.


7.) 14 Jan 2019 20:53:35
They are both very young so that adds to their value. They have both played in the top competitions and are first choice for one of the best teams in the world.

Doesn't surprise me that they are highly valued.


 

 

08 Jan 2019 19:27:13
For all this banter with Wolves fans. How do we feel about having them as our last fixture of the season?

For me (obviously), I'd rather have it tied up by then. I think they'll be a hard team to beat if they still have anything to play for.

EpicPotato

1.) 08 Jan 2019 19:40:12
I look forward to them giving us the guard of honour.


2.) 08 Jan 2019 20:06:44
We played awfully for 90minutes with a 2nd string out against a strong side and only lost 2-1 there will be much harder tests than that!


3.) 08 Jan 2019 20:49:59
Nah epic. Our full strength team will dispatch them with ease. We already have and that was at wolves. This will be at anfield. I'm not worried at all. Its the penultimate game against Chelsea at anfield. Can't help being reminded of the Gerrard slip.

Also, wolves probably won't have much to play for by then, especially if they do make the FA Cup final. That said, I can see them pushing for 7th and in their next season I think they will be the 7th team if not disposing united and breaking into the big 6. Could be a big 7 before long and people say our league is not competitive coz only 6 teams have a chance. Which is of course rubbish. Spain have 2/ 3 teams that have a shot, Italy have maybe 4.


4.) 09 Jan 2019 00:11:48
Robbiesline the penultimate game isn't against Chelsea, we play them as our 5 last game and we have a relative good run after that. We have cardiff Huddersfield newcastle then wolves so fingers crossed fellow reds.


5.) 09 Jan 2019 04:50:10
Oh really deisered, that's good. I obviously didn't scroll down far enough in my search for LFC run in. At anfield though. I'm not worried. At home we beat anyone.


 

 

11 Dec 2018 19:00:45
Milner, Hendo and Gini in midfield. I was really hoping Keita would start, but he's on the bench, as is Shaqiri.

Apart from that, no surprises. Matip stays in defence but I thought he did well last match. Napoli will be a different challenge for him I'm sure.

Come on Red Men.

EpicPotato

 

 

05 Dec 2018 18:50:01
I hope Klopp knows what he's doing here.

Origi, Sturridge, Shaqiri, Moreno and Matip start.

Firmino and Salah on the bench.

Keita starts in midfield ahead of Gini.

Come on Red Men.

EpicPotato

1.) 05 Dec 2018 18:55:29
I thought there would be changes but this is a bit of a gamble for me.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 19:02:11
Is Lovren injured guys? Did I miss something.

Tho we need to rotate a lot during December, and with the next two game really hard this one comes in time so we can rotate like this.


3.) 05 Dec 2018 19:04:43
Damn right Den82. I nearly spat out my tea when I saw the lineup. I just hope it pays off. I'm happy Keita is finally getting a start, Moreno playing has been forced on Klopp, and I'm guessing he doesn't want to bring Milner out of midfield.

I just think starting Origi and Sturridge together and having none of our usual front 3 is a massive gamble. Hopefully one of them can give us a moment of brilliance or two, and we can keep it tight at the back - but having both Moreno and Matip in the back four can definitely be exploited if their attackers can show some form.


4.) 05 Dec 2018 19:06:39
@martolfc. Yes, Lovren suffered a clash of heads in training. Trent is on the bench though, so he could have played Gomez in the middle (who looks like he'll be a right back) .


5.) 05 Dec 2018 19:09:25
Matip worries me.


6.) 05 Dec 2018 19:11:52
I definitely would've stuck with Gomez in the middle and Trent on the right. We need a relatively settled defence to cope with the other changes, and indeed to cope with Moreno!


7.) 05 Dec 2018 19:16:08
I am shocked at the amount of changes. Yes, they are all experienced players but it takes some guts or stupidity to re write the starting front 3 before a must win (for the league to not get away from us) game away from home.

In Klopp we trust just Jeez he does put you through some emotions. Wow.

{Ed025's Note - it can only be one of 2 things BG, an absolute masterstroke...or an unmitigated disaster mate..


8.) 05 Dec 2018 19:19:45
Great management if we win.

{Ed025's Note - biggest faux pas in history if you dont..


9.) 05 Dec 2018 19:26:38
I've got a bad feeling about this team. Come on Reds!


10.) 05 Dec 2018 19:26:38
I've got a bad feeling about this team. Come on Reds!


11.) 05 Dec 2018 19:27:48
Burnley are making 5 changes themselves. All across the league the lineups are looking a bit different, so it’s not just us. It’s a test of our strength in depth and I was happier with our squad at the start of the season than I’ve been for ages, so I suppose that means I should be confident.
Go on then, I’ll stick my neck out, 3-1 to us!
YNWA.


12.) 05 Dec 2018 19:30:14
Off course it's a gamble but I guess the players need a break. It will be a busy few weeks so Klopp has looked at the opposition and put a team out he hopes can get a result. Again, and I hate to mention it but it shows the plethora of talent City have at their disposal when we have to rely on Matip and Moreno etc. I'm just hoping we can get any type of victory.


13.) 05 Dec 2018 19:36:12
Burnley 0:3 LFC

Matip not a bad shout for heading away long balls- and fingers crossed Burnley’s front 2 don’t develop some sudden pace between them.
Could actually play 3 with Milner and Moreno wide, stop those diagonals coming in
Hendo and Naby with Shaqiri in front behind Origi and Studge

Allison
Matip-VvD-Gomez
Milner-Hendo-Naby-Moreno
Shaqiri
Sturridge - Origi.


14.) 05 Dec 2018 19:41:23
Struck me too AggerDo, wouldn’t be a bad shout against Burnley but a change to an unfamiliar formation could make the changes in personnel even more of a risk.


15.) 05 Dec 2018 19:43:45
The problem is, he needs to win by 2 goals just to make it acceptable. Theory there being a close 1-0 or 2-1 and he’s got lucky. A win by 2 and it’s fair and average for 2nd playing 1 from bottom. For it to be a masterstroke he needs a 3 goal win minimum. That’s the fickle nature of the fandom/ media of today’s game, the question is. does a team without your starting wingbacks and starting front 3 in a system that relies on your wingbacks and interchanging front 3 have the goals or experience to get you that win.

I’ll let you know in a couple of hours. I hope so.


16.) 05 Dec 2018 19:50:51
thought the same Agger, but it has made me nervous, we can't afford to drop points and give City too much of a lead .


17.) 05 Dec 2018 20:15:35
now Gomez now being taken off on a stretcher, looks a bad ankle injury, that's a major worry .


18.) 05 Dec 2018 20:45:57
Shown massive disrespect to Burnley with the team klopp has played! We’ve be toothless up front and thank Jaysus Burnley where off side for that goal as it was a great finish!


19.) 05 Dec 2018 21:05:20
not a good night for Liverpool, great night for City, were getting beat and ha, we just scored .


20.) 05 Dec 2018 21:39:46
@ChefMattD I really hope you but a bet on your 3-1 prediction. Well played bro :)


21.) 05 Dec 2018 21:41:11
It paid off in the end.


22.) 05 Dec 2018 22:02:44
Haha, I’m not a betting man mate. All the credit goes to my pet octopus, Paul.

{Ed025's Note - is it a poorly octopus matt?...if so you owe him sick squid.. :)


23.) 05 Dec 2018 22:22:17
So it was a genius masterstroke in the end.


24.) 05 Dec 2018 22:25:23
I think that was Keitas best game since the first one. Delighted to get through with the win also.


25.) 05 Dec 2018 22:43:03
He’s currently out with 7 torn hamstrings Ed. pfyshio is having a nightmare.


26.) 05 Dec 2018 23:13:19
Great result tonight.
Just watching the Wolves - Chelsea game : sign that lad Morgan Gibbs-White up. Performance reminded me of Gerrard tonight.


27.) 05 Dec 2018 23:23:14
YIKES! the negative energy from some on this thread is a sight to behold. Good thing the team did not give up before a ball was kicked like many on here did. Also, the players who came into the team today, did us proud IMO, and hopefully, they can take some credit from this game.

Bottom line is that you have to rotate the team in this period and like it or not, you're going to have to trust the manager and the team he picked. Pep made changed to his lineup vs Watford and it nearly cost him. Here, we were the better team from minute one till the end with Keita bossing it and Matip defending high balls and bullying the rugby strikers Wood and Barnes. Hopefully he can kick on from here.

Also, massive props to Origi, Moreno, Milner and in fact, every player that played today cos they all had a hand in this precious victory even THO, the ref spotted Burnley one goal cos Wood was offside when the ball came to him first off the first header.

How refreshing to read the confidence so many Liverpool supporters have in our manager and our playing squad. Here’s a tip - why not wait until the match is over before criticising the team selection and performance? Jeez!

Yeah, us supporters shouldn't be entitled to our opinions. Down with fan enjoyment or interest.

I think the thread was fair and balanced. A lot of people shocked at the managers decisions but general consensus was let's wait and see. Clearly now (after result) it was a masterstroke to rest key players, well done Klopp.

As for those saying that people should keep their opinions to themselves until after the match, I don't think they have grasped the concept of the discussion forum that they are on.

Sorry BUT I disagree, Beckers. This is about whether you trust the manager to do the right thing and make the right decisions and based on the comments on this thread (if you bothered to read them) people had thrown in the towel before a ball was kicked. You simply can't pick your best team every time and that is a fact so why moan about it when changes are made as if people did not know it would happen during the loaded festive period? Klopp and the staff probably already planned to pick this team before the Everton game. That is my issue here.

What were we expecting? That Klopp not make changes? Or that we did not know he would make the changes? Even Burnley made FIVE changes so what is all the fuss about?


Our boys (changes notwithstanding) were the better team from start to finish and their goal was OFFSIDE (first shot on target for them in the game) and we came back in the game, never panicked and finished them off. Job done. People are free to post whatever they want BUT should not be mad when others disagree and respond accordingly.

Where do you see Ciro Immobile fitting in? That would be a massive waste of money and I think the powers that be know better than to go for a transfer like that.

Where did you even read this rumour?

Jonesred - They may reconsider that Llorente transfer out now. It would leave Jannsen as their only striker (and he's a big poo pie), unless they have someone in the academy, but that is a lot of responsibility for a young player, replacing Kane until mid March.

Lucas Moura is injured, Son is on international duty. I can't think who they can play up front if they let Llorente go.

{Ed001's Note - the Asian Nations final is on the 1st Feb, if I remember correctly, so it is only a couple of weeks then Son is back.}

I'd find it as unlikely/ foolish. Origi is not better than Llorente. Surely if they were going to go for a loan to cover for Kane's injury, Batshuayi would be a better option?

I know he's not a top calibre forward, but I think he's better than Origi.

Haha Faithinworks. Ed002 is not in charge of Barcelona transfers. If he knows that person (s) directly, that is his source. It more likely that he knows somebody that know somebody that knows that person. Or even one step further. Nonetheless, I appreciate his input so so much.

Thanks for the clarification Ed002. I hadn't read anything concrete to that effect until now and I trust your sources.

I expect they want to recoup a large amount of what they paid though, and I'd imagine that there's only a small subset of players that Barcelona would be interested in as a part-exchange. It may end up in them just having to play him to his strengths and trying to fit him in, as there must be very few teams able to sign him and be willing to, and furthermore have a player they are happy to part with that Barcelona also deem worthy for their squad.

03beef - It's mainly forums and replies to articles. I actually can't think of any that I know personally. I'm not stating his performances as fact, just relaying what I'm reading about him on said mediums.

I feel that this whole "Coutinho transfer" saga is completely fabricated by the media. There's only 7 players in that squad that have played more minutes than him. He's not the first name on the team sheet, but he's certainly not the last. He's part of a squad rotation.

I think the problem is that he was seen as the successor to Iniesta, and he's not that player. He still a fine footballer though and he'll just have to fill a different role for them.

There's absolutely nothing coming from Barcelona that they want him out. Well at least from what I've seen.

{Ed002's Note - No, he is available and being offered for part exchange.}

They also have an absolutely crazy injury list. The last time I looked at it, I could probably put together a decent XI from it that would do well in the French league. I hope they can sort it out, as I do like Thierry. Seems a decent guy.
