Hi Eds, are their any striker targets outs there. Obviously someone would have to leave in order for someone to come in. Who are the clubs options and who have they been scouting. Recently Klopp said Solanke is a long term project, which does not mean much if he plays well he plays well.

HarryTheRED

{Ed002's Note - Of the strikers that Liverpool were known to have looked at leading up to the summer the vast majority have signed new contracts, moved elsewhere or decided to stay where they are except Luan - and right now it is another side who are attempting to get an offer accepted.}


1.) 13 Jul 2017 19:11:09
Solanke, Sturridge, Firmino, Origi and Ings. It is highly unlikely that we are looking to add to the striker department at this point. What people seem to forget is that we play with a front three. Place for one striker. Mane and Salah will not be occupying the bench.

Along with that, Klopp did make it clear that replacing Sturridge is going to cost an awful amount of money. Injuries aside, are there any strikers available without blowing an obscene amount as good as Sturridge?


2.) 13 Jul 2017 18:48:21
Hi Ed002, in the shark pod you mentioned Azmoun, Dembele, Marega and Andre Silva. I would guess Azmoun and Dembele are completely out of the question now, but did we ever follow up anything on Marega or Silva? Silva in particular would be great in my opinion as he can play anywhere across a front 3. After the sharkopod though, they haven't been mentioned since.

{Ed002's Note - Andre Silva has moved elsewhere. MM has extended his contract on loan for another year.}


3.) 13 Jul 2017 18:52:46
Luan is class, finger crossed we can scoop in. Won't hold my breath, thanks Ed002 for the quick response. Scary seeing all of our rivals strengthening, hopefully we don't get left behind.


4.) 13 Jul 2017 19:10:07
We were 4th top scorers in the league without a 20 a season scorer and the teams that did have one were not far ahead. As much as I'd like an Aubemeyang or Lacazette would that really have made much difference when the real problem was defence and a soft centre in midfield at times.


5.) 13 Jul 2017 19:35:16
Agree with Max on this one.

We'd all love a world class striker but it just isn't a priority and it costs a fortune to buy the calibre of proven striker we are talking about here.

The value isn't there for that type of proven player this window. Case in point Lukakus recent mega bucks move.

That's the type of money we'd have to pay and if we're al honest that money needs to be spent on the defence.


6.) 13 Jul 2017 19:42:15
maxlfc, agree 110% with you. Solanke is a good addition, Ed002 has spoken very highly of his ability and from what I've seen he's got confidence to go with that.


7.) 13 Jul 2017 19:54:45
I'd like to see Sturridge kept and started against teams that pack it in next season. Basically have two different systems, one with a high press with Firmino leading the line, and another with Sturridge leading the line when a potent finisher is needed more due to a dearth of chances.


8.) 13 Jul 2017 19:50:28
I personally think Sturridge is our best finisher by a mile. It's just frustrating that because of the type of player he is He's more prone to injury. What's your opinion on the striking options Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Please read the posts.}


9.) 13 Jul 2017 20:44:08
In a front 3 it's firmino isn't it. DS wasnt injured for the whole of last season but he couldn't get in front of Bobby OR origi. He's (DS) an amazing player, we saw that in 442 formation at end of season but hd doesn't fit with klopps style of football. Luan does imo he can make goals as well as finish them. Works hard for team mates. Thing is do we risk unsettling sturridge and trying to sell him when we don't know if A, we can get the price we want for him and B, we don't know if we can sign luan. Have always thought luan rumour had meat on the bone and I won't be surprised if we sell sturridge this summer. I will be sad though.


10.) 13 Jul 2017 22:27:51
Jansens it depends on what you want. To just tweak one or two bits at the back and hope to scrape success or try to improve either end, with more chances being created by the players in the middle, and have a real shot at top place. The league isn't decided by how many you score or concede if you don't win enough games and that was a problem at both ends, conceding against weaker sides and failing to score against them.


11.) 13 Jul 2017 23:50:12
Don't need another striker mate! Well stocked there! A CM, LB and CB.


12.) 14 Jul 2017 00:53:10
Having a 20+ a season goal scorer is a nice option to have, I'd rather have goals from all over the park if I had to choose between the two. Don't get me wrong though to have both would be great.


13.) 14 Jul 2017 00:59:46
Salah can play as a striker. In fact, most of his goals come from him reading where the ball will fall when other players take shots. He's an excellent poacher and lightening quick. I'd rather see him as the striker and Bobby and Mane buzzing around him. Both decent goalscorers themselves.


14.) 14 Jul 2017 01:07:13
Luan won't be signed and DS won't be sold. I'm not in the know in any way but no efforts have been made there so it's not hard to deduct that a striker won't be added. The rest of the month will go by very quickly and we seem to be going for a CM, LB and CB. Stop daydreaming about a striker. we got enough as it is and some exciting youngsters.


 

 

23 Jun 2017 16:58:24
Hi Eds, has there been any advances in negotiations with Monaco regarding Mendy. I know a while ago one of you said there was very preliminary talks being held. Who are our LB options and is Mendy our first choice. Cheers Eds.

HarryTheRED

{Ed002's Note - No more than an enquiry.}


1.) 23 Jun 2017 21:22:37
Not true a offer was on the table and we spoke to the player and offered him 40% of his wage.


2.) 24 Jun 2017 11:16:19
Source for this info?


 

 

16 Jun 2017 09:05:30
As the window is getting closer to opening any movement on players going out. Heard Lazar might be Watford bound to hook up with Marco Silva again. Can you confirm any interest in any players?

HarryTheRED

1.) 16 Jun 2017 09:26:32
Wouldn't be surprised if it happened after the first game though.


2.) 16 Jun 2017 09:34:34
I expect a lot of movements in coming weeks mainly Outs. Lucas, Stewart, Lazar all will be moving out!


3.) 16 Jun 2017 12:42:03
Form, you mentioned 3 players, I think that you can double that number easily .


4.) 16 Jun 2017 13:29:07
Sakho? Moreno? Wisdom?

Come on Harry! šŸ˜‰.


5.) 16 Jun 2017 13:38:55
Lucas might not go.


6.) 16 Jun 2017 15:47:55
I'd say definites include.

Wisdom.
Sahko.
Markovic.
Stewart.
Lucas.

Probable include.

Moreno.
Flanagan.
Ojo.

Loans
Ward.
Ings.
Ejaria.
Gomez.


7.) 16 Jun 2017 16:23:59
Wed be crazy to get rid of ojo. I think a loan deal with Newcastle would be fantastic for the lad.


8.) 16 Jun 2017 17:19:59
I'm not saying I want him to leave I said could be a probable sale.


 

 

09 Jun 2017 19:16:50
What is the situation with Leiva, he was on the clubs retained list? Has he signed a new contract to be sold or is the club looking to keep him for next year'sā€‹ squad? Thanks Eds.

HarryTheRED

{Ed001's Note - offered one and is thinking it over.}


1.) 09 Jun 2017 19:59:30
Hope he stays personally - good professional with lots of experience and the nearest we've got to a scouser in the first team (youngsters aside)


2.) 09 Jun 2017 21:47:43
I think he deserves regular playing time and for that I think he has to leave. Model professional and LFC's current longest serving player.


3.) 09 Jun 2017 23:37:51
Abs embarrassing if Lucas stays, wasn't has never been good enough and the fact bang average players like him are accepted is the reason we've one trophy in 10 years, have we learned nothing,


4.) 10 Jun 2017 00:44:38
Port Red you are an idiot if you think Lucas shouldn't be kept on for another year. he is a model pro and never let's us down. much rather him as back up than klavan at centre half or stewart in the middle.


5.) 10 Jun 2017 00:46:17
Shame on you talking of lucus that way. Faithful to lfc and puts 110% into every performance. Not the most creative player but does what he does well. This type of player is vital. Look at players player of year. I hope he stays, we will need experience in ucl and may need player of his ilk in the latter stages if we get that far.


6.) 10 Jun 2017 01:09:28
Great pro, good role model, love his commitment, but we need better if we're going to get where we want to be. We were one of the best teams in the world when we had Xabi, Masch and Gerrard in the middle and sorry but there's a reason those three kept Lucas out the side.


7.) 09 Jun 2017 21:03:43
Thanks Ed, do you know if it is a one year or multiple. Does this eliminate any other CM coming to us in the summer since our midfield is overly crowded as is.

{Ed001's Note - I don't and no.}


8.) 10 Jun 2017 02:52:46
Fact is westwood you don't get a player of XMG's calibre to sit on your bench, so to have a model professional like Lucas on your books covers ANY of those positions WHEN one of them gets injured. Wise up. Football is a squad game.


9.) 10 Jun 2017 02:52:58
Ww666. Xabi mash and Gerrard make 3 lucus has had some very good seasons I think 08/ 09 09/ 10 10/ 11 especially you talk like he's the reason we've struggled last ten years (although we really should have two prem titles a champions league and europa league to add to league cup. ) But he really hasn't started much in recent years. Good person to have around the club, utility man. Experience. I'm happy whatever he chooses. He earned it.


10.) 10 Jun 2017 03:25:58
Agree with Port.
No doubt the guy has been loyal and gives 100%, but the fact is he isn't good enough to contribute to a team that wants to challenge for trophies. If he wants first team he should definitely seek a new team as he should only ever be a back up for us.


11.) 10 Jun 2017 04:58:36
Lucas is a brilliant servant of this club, has always been a model professional and deserves all of our utmost respect. I do somewhat agree he's not first choice anymore, and nor should he be, however he does have specific uses in certain situations (defensive sub to close out a game) and he's a valuable backup should we have an injury crisis, while at the same time also being a senior pro who could be extremely valuable in terms of sheparding some of the younger team members when playing some of the cup games in mid January. He's also a support for some of the brazilian players and a great ambassador for how to behave.

I'm perfectly fine if he were to sign for another year if this is how Klopp sees his role, or to see him move to Gremio for first team football if that's what he wants. I won't necessarily be happy to see him starting every game as I think we should be aiming for the future, but let's not overlook the value he can bring to the squad and what he's done for this club.


12.) 10 Jun 2017 09:33:37
When Lucas first arrived he was an Attacking Midfielder. We played him more defensively and for a while he struggled but cracked on.
Now, years on he is established and competent from CB right up the spine of the team. He plays that extremely disciplined role in front of our back four really well. He is likely only behind Henderson and Milner for effort.
All these naysayers seem forget that in our big games it is Lucas who is asked to mark danger men out of the game, I remember watching him stop David Silva playing for virtually an entire match.
He has never moaned about being moved around, never spoken ill of the club, he is a great professional to have around the youngsters and can cover so many central positions. He is an ideal Premiership squad player.
All these saying we need better, I don't see many of the other clubs around us with a better option to cover those positions off the bench. Chelsea have Matic and Kante but none of the others have such a devoted and enthusiastic back up.
I think he's awesome and deserves more respect than he's given.


13.) 10 Jun 2017 09:37:08
I agree with Port on this although maybe wouldn't put it so harshly. There's no doubting his professionalism and I'm sure he's a great guy to have in and around the squad. My fear is if he stays there is a temptation to play him and he is simply not good enough and never has been.


14.) 10 Jun 2017 10:35:51
I'm not questioning his commitment or effort, he's been a great servant yes, but is not and never was good enough, unfortunately we've been used to average players over the last 10 years and he's stood out among them, he's only 30 so why aren't top teams looking for him? Keeping him just postpones us building a proper squad to challenge with players in their proper positions, but as we've seen this week we're an utter shambles and this will probably happen, and we'll be back here talking the same crap next summer.


15.) 10 Jun 2017 11:04:01
He's a good lad Lucas a lot forget where his proper place was on a pitch he was never a dm and Rafa made him play there! His heart is red he loves Liverpool! Let him go in peace he's loyal and deserves it!


16.) 10 Jun 2017 13:52:44
Makes you wonder if he had scored that goal early on, the one Neville saved illegally, would things have turned our different! He deserves support for being the perfect professional at the club, but think it's time for him to move on for his own sake!


17.) 10 Jun 2017 15:12:00
Well said an field Andy. The job lucus does is not always easy to see, marking players out of games doesn't always make it on match of the day.


18.) 13 Jun 2017 22:57:11
Stoneage. Telling someone to wise up when giving an opinion isn't the way to get people to listen. I see the facts for what they are. He wants to play regularly, which he likely won't at our club as we (hopefully) progress. Even if we weren't progressing he isn't getting many games. And with respect to the fella he's hardly a game changer is he? Offers little consistently going forward and makes silly fouls in defence offering a opportunity for teams to exploit our biggest weakness-defending set pieces. In the end it isn't really even about Lucas. It's about progressing. We should always be looking to bring through or buy players better than what we have, and again in case your not getting it HEA A GREAT PRO but there's plenty better out there that we could sign.


 

 

05 Jun 2017 17:42:40
Hey Eds, as it appears the transfer window is in full swing without it being officially open. With all the great business being done by the club, is there another striker incoming besides Solanke. Is Malcolm, Morega, and Lacazette still an option or have we moved on to other targets. Also is a Midfielder still a priority at this point?

HarryTheRED

{Ed002's Note - If Salah arrives the club has no need for Malcom. Moussa Marega is no longer an option. I don't see Lacazette as an option for Liverpool - he wanted Atletico and now two clubs are talking with Lyon about a deal.}


1.) 05 Jun 2017 19:54:53
Love you Ed002. I knew the Lacazette link was bogus. ;)
Can you tell me if the Demarai Gray stuff is legit?
Thanks a million a always.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are among the clubs to show an interest in Demarai Gray.}


2.) 05 Jun 2017 20:02:18
It's a shock to see Lacazette go somewhere else considering Atletico were the "club of his heart".


3.) 05 Jun 2017 20:30:50
Hi Ed002,

Guess you must be really busy now, hope things get easier soon.

Thus many apologies for taking up your time by asking if you might reveal who the two clubs are that are talking to Lyon about a deal for Lacaette.

Any info much appreciated as always.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal and Dortmund.}


4.) 05 Jun 2017 20:44:13
Tristan, not really a surprise considering Atletico are banned from making transfers.


5.) 05 Jun 2017 21:03:56
Thank you so much for swift reply Ed!


6.) 06 Jun 2017 08:04:36
Eds is Solanke ready for a regular role next season or viewed as one to develop?

{Ed001's Note - develop definitely.}

Hi Eds, thanks for the great work and providing updates during this hectic time. Was hoping of there was any updates regarding any potential outgoing deals that are being worked on. Also as Macca stated the CB deal is done, but is Ox being pursues in lieu of Lemar or are the deals not related.

HarryTheRED

{Ed002's Note - If Macca has said the centre back deal is done then you should trust him.}


1.) 30 Aug 2017 16:57:24
Macca never stated it was done.


 

 

28 Aug 2017 16:46:20
Hi Eds, any update on Ox. Reports are claiming that Chelsea have a fee agreed for him. Any word on who will be the potential next signings? Does Keita count as part of the 2-3 signing that we're touted? Cheers.

HarryTheRED

{Ed001's Note - we have yet to make any bid for him so he will no doubt end up at Chelsea. Not a bad move for him.}


1.) 28 Aug 2017 17:32:35
I think we've dodged a bullet. He wants to be a central midfielder but I can't see Conte being that silly to play him there. He'll be playing wing back. He's a very ordinary footballer who only gets attention because he's English.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 17:27:02
Do you think the lack of action regarding the Ox might point to us being confident that we can land Lemar? Or would the two be unrelated?

{Ed002's Note - Unrelated.}


3.) 28 Aug 2017 17:35:52
Thanks Ed002.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 21:19:10
Phew, that was close.


 

 

20 Jul 2017 15:33:40
Hey Eds, this Keita and Van Dijk saga are on going. Have Liverpool started to make contact with other clubs for alternatives and if so can you share who is or who do you think the club should look at?

HarryTheRED

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}


 

 

20 Jun 2017 06:36:13
Hey Eds what is the status on any transfer dealings. Can you shed light on any preliminary deals, early negotiations, and any bids being made? Figured it would be easier to ask to be informed instead of throwing random names out there.

HarryTheRED

1.) 20 Jun 2017 09:37:12
Christ almighty. I don't normally post, but I logged in especially to express my disappointment and incredulity at this OP. Do you not read this page at all?

I know, he didn't ask the eds for any time scales either! šŸ™„.

No, Harry, no deals this window. Same squad next year :)


 

 

11 Jun 2017 15:51:09
Hi Eds, would you mind giving us a run down of players you think LFC are looking at and who they may look at. This way maybe some of the indistinct chatter may stop. Cheers Eds.

I agree DHFC, but it would hard to sign people who are on the cusp of breaking into the squad for a World Cup year. We are having a hard time convincing Can at the moment. Kemt and Woodburn could offer relief and rest during the early stages of the league and FA Cup or even into the latter stages. Origi could play out in the wings if necessary, but it appears he will be going out on loan. Btw Ed's, do you any of you know if suitors for him if he does go out on loan.

Or maybe a Woodburn or Kent. No point in sending out players on loan, if we plan on signing someone to replace them. We would need someone more of a complete product instead.
