Hey Eds, is LFC continuing to watch Leandro Paredes? I believe he would be a useful signing with his passing range and help break down stubborn defences which our hard running mids like Lallana and Gini have failed to do.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts at this time.}

1.) 11 Mar 2017 13:12:29
He must have been well scouted as we were trying to sign him in Jan. Just depends if he's up for a move.
Would he get a work permit ed, in your opinion?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool made no offer in January. He would however likely be expensive enough and have wage demands that would ease the passage for a work permit. I don't see any issues if Liverpool were to make a move for him.}

2.) 11 Mar 2017 18:37:23
Thanks ed002 😘.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Ron. He is available and was offered to another club as part of an exchange deal on two separate occasions.}

3.) 11 Mar 2017 19:32:58
I ve watched Paredes in 4 games now due to liverpool link and I just don't see it. He looks a fancy playmaker but in the games I watched he looked pretty useless defensively. both positionally and tackling ability. He goes to ground every single tackle even when it is not needed. pretty cowardly if you ask me. If he plays our defensive midfielder god help us.

Likelwise while I agree he looks good on the ball did very little really in the games I watched.

Honestly I think he's all wrong for the premier league especially but I'll take it from those who have seen more of him if I have misjudged him. I really hope so if we are after him.

4.) 11 Mar 2017 21:42:49
Davey he is more of a midfield playmaker than a destroyer. Your assessment is one of the more accurate I have seen. He certainly won't sit back and protect the defence. Maybe he could be coached to do that, but what a waste of his skills on the ball that would be.

He is very good on the ball, and likes to make little driving runs to get his side forward quickly and open up space in front of him, which he then has the vision to exploit.

As you quite rightly say though he is not that great defensively. He is a bit rash in the tackle and due to his forays forward he gets caught out of position at times.

He is definitely a good player though. He has a pretty wicked shot on him as well; even from dead balls. I think he could do well in the Premier League but I don't see how he fits into our midfield 3. He would give Klopp options though as he could play alongside Henderson in a midfield 2. I think he only becomes an option if we sell Emre Can though.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 02:05:09
I think it's fairly well accepted that Klopp needs to work on his "midfield 3".
Whatever letter of the alphabet you wish to place on Paredes' position. the fact remains he is a player who moves the ball quickly whether long or short.
He is the complete opposite of Emre Can in that respect.
He also has superb vision and can pick a pass which others don't see.
He has a great shot on him and takes corners and free kicks.
Compared to Naby Keita, Paredes is a world beater. Keita is a ball winner, his distribution is average. He's ok at 2 yard sideways passes. Keita offers very little more than Can.
We need more than little short passes across the midfield, we need players with vision. Paredes would be a huge upgrade on our current midfield. Keita would be more of the same - loads of possession and no penetration.

6.) 12 Mar 2017 12:12:50
I wouldn't bite the bullet on that though. I am not sure but everytimeI have seen him play he looked like a proper number 4. Just ahead of the CB's and carrying forward. If he could do a job at the back then I am happy to buy him coz he is excellent on the ball not many hard core DM ain't though.

Disagree on Emre Can's replacement criteria with you MK. We simply do not need another B2B attacking midfielder. Can was played as a DM hence his replacement should be the deepest lying midfielder.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 13:07:43
I largely agree Ron. That is primarily what makes him an upgrade on Can. His instinctive passing and movement doesn't ever look forced. He is a natural footballer. He is everything we wanted that young 20 year old Emre Can to become, and more. I do feel Can was badly let down by Rodgers and Lowe, who both wasted his early years of development playing him in defence.

As you also pointed out Ron, Paredes is a set piece specialist which is something we lack, to put it lightly.

I think he is a good player for sure, but that widely accepted view on the need to adjust our midfield set up would need to be actioned by Klopp. In our current system, Paredes doesn't have the discipline to play Hendo's holding role, he doesn't have the stamina/ power to play Gini's box to box role, and he doesn't suit Lallana's slightly more advanced position. Obviously Klopp could try Paredes in a midfield 3 with a different role in the team to any of the above, but then it has a knock on affect to this whole fluid front 4/ 5 that we have going on. Maybe it could work, but I am not sure on that one.

If Klopp was to put Paredes alongside Henderson in a classic central midfield pairing though and push Gini/ Lallana on a bit to play anywhere in a 3 behind the striker (where they both have previous to score double figures anyway) then I could see Paredes being an absolutely brilliant signing for us.

Paredes was tried in a defensive midfield role at the base of a diamond by Empoli and it really didn't flatter him. His creativity was wasted, his goal threat was stifled, and he gave away a lot of silly fouls picking up a lot of yellow cards in the process. He just doesn't have the awareness or the discipline to play the role. Yet as an all out attacking midfielder he would likely be starting from a position too close to opposition territory. His strengths are driving into opposition territory so I don't know how he would cope with having to find space in between the lines as Lallana or Coutinho can do. That is not something easily taught.

Is he potentially good enough to justofy breaking up the system we have spent all season perfecting? Possibly, but it couldn't hurt to have alternative options in the squad anyway and Paredes is a specialist at opening up defensive teams from the midfield.

8.) 12 Mar 2017 22:31:48
I disagree with most on here as I think Keita would be a better fit. He would just sit in front of the back four, he has a better passing range than given credit for. If Hendo and Wijnaldum/ Lallana knew someone was always behind them they would have more of a licence to push further forward. If Keita covered then other players could do the attacking stuff.

9.) 13 Mar 2017 05:14:59
Sadly looks like Keita might have some serious health issues - hopefully he is ok.



10 Mar 2016 13:57:24
Hey Eds, any truth in the rumors linking LFC with Jonas Hector and Timo Horn, both of FC Cologne? Apparently the club had scouts watch them quite often this season. Quality players both of them imo. Would be significant upgrades on Migs and Moreno.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - There is known interest in Horn from another English side but I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time. Hector would be a very odd choice if Liverpool were interested - he is very much a defender who doesn't get forward much.}



11 Mar 2015 05:16:57
Hey eds, any update on Brad Smith's contract situation? Does he have a future at LFC or do u expect him to move on? Hope he gets a chance as i feel heis a much better option than Enrique at LWB and LB.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was likely to move on, but I don't know if he has changed that over the course of this season. He was being given the season to prove himself.}

1.) 11 Mar 2015 11:37:27
He didn't sign the contract LFC wanted him to, so he was re-called from his loan and asked to play in the reserves. I expect him to leave this summer.



09 Oct 2014 09:41:30
Lots of rumors flying around about Reus to LFC? Any truth to this eds?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 09 Oct 2014 11:53:46
This rumor just never dies.

2.) Sounds like the same old stuff doing the rounds again. Nothing doing, though would be a nice surprise if he did come to LFC.

3.) 10 Oct 2014 05:16:47
Not strictly LFC related, Ed002, but any insight as to where he might end up? Or do you see him staying at BVB?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot say where he will end up but Dortmund have held talks with Manchester City and a third party acting on behalf of PSG has enquired after his availability. Barcelona would like to agree a January 2016 move but it is unsure if that would suit the player. Dortmund will not want to sell to Bayern Munich but they have aging forwards they need to look to replacing and may push for a deal. If Liverpool were to lose Sterling they might look to Reus. If Real Madrid were to lose Ronaldo they might also look to Reus. Arsenal has shown previous interest but I am not convinced there is anything there right now.}

4.) 10 Oct 2014 16:06:41
Very interesting. Cheers for the response, Ed002, it's appreciated.



25 Sep 2013 10:54:39
Hey eds, is there any interest in Carlos Vela from LFC? I still wonder why we did not go for him instead of Aspas, because he has more experience playing at the highest level and is no doubt the better player. He is banging the goals in for Real Sociedad. {Ed001's Note - last I heard he had no interest in a return to England, there were a number of inquiries for him from English clubs.}

Question for Ed002:
You have mentioned number of times that Coutinho is interested in leaving the club for Barcelona or PSG. Is this a trend you see continuing with South American (and to some extent Spanish) players irrespective of the club's improved performances or can you see them actually wanting to stay if LFC start winning titles on a regular basis in the future?
Chelsea and Man City have done a very good job of keeping their star players out of the clutches of Barca, Real, PSG and Bayern so can you see LFC doing the same?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - Players want to be playing at the highest level that they can and want the opportunity to win leagues and play in the Champions League. It really is nothing new. Liverpool are playing in a very competitive league which makes it all the more difficult to sustain success with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United competing as well.}

1.) 12 Nov 2016 15:19:54
Fully agree with you and I find t disappointing if this is the mentality of top players today.
They can stay in a competitive league or o and play for PSG and be able to walk it, or Real and Barcelona and have a couple of tough games per season.
Sad indictment of the modern game.

2.) 12 Nov 2016 15:51:42

Nothing to do with league. Hazard and Aguero has been in with their same team from years now. KDB, Pogba, Sanchez, Ozil and majority of the high profiles names are in the PL. In fact except the MSN and Ronaldo everyone are in the PL.
It's about success and titles. Our past record is poor for elite players to get convinced unless you fill their pocket with high wages.
Look at Spurs for example. Struggling due lack of quality in the side.

3.) 12 Nov 2016 18:31:54
More like wages.

4.) 12 Nov 2016 22:59:46

Is it just me or has anyone else been bored to death with Euros 2016? I have not completed one single game without falling asleep. Matches back here in India start at 12:30 AM and all i can say is I have lost valuable sleep trying to watch whatever it is the national teams are trying to do.
I really miss the premier league. It may not have the technical ability of other leagues, but the thrill, suspense and pace of the game really draws me to it.

It's just you, mate. I have watched some great games. Every Wales and Iceland game has been high energy and end to end. The Croatia v Portugal game was end to end especially in Extra Time and the Italy v Spain game was awesome as well and there others too so again it's just you, mate.

2.) 03 Jul 2016 09:38:47
Totally agree with Indian buzzer, the euros as not been great at all.

3.) 03 Jul 2016 10:58:52
What would you expect? After most of the players played 50+ games you expect quick football, up and down counters etc. Euro is played for resault, teams are evenly matched and i enjoy that! Best players of europe are there and tactically it is very good to watch for those who really like football. maybe a chance to see how a good tactics and team spirit wins you games and that you see that some of the English players are so overrated or they just don't care for their country. I noticed English guys don't care for their nacional team but if you are bad why would you take something off others who enjoy it!

4.) 03 Jul 2016 11:26:54
Enjoyed large parts of it.
Some games have been full though, depends how lucky you are.

5.) 03 Jul 2016 11:47:55
The Croatia-Portugal game was one of the worst I've ever watched. 117 minutes for the first shot on target. 2 hours of boring football with no attacking threat. End to end? Yeah they were at each others end once in the match. By no means has the tourney been bad, but to pick out the worst match as an example of its quality is mental. Portugal v Hungary though.

6.) 03 Jul 2016 11:48:34

Mumbai. Why?

8.) 03 Jul 2016 17:37:42
I'll have to disagree with you, I love international football tournaments and usually watch as many of the games as I can.

There's not a lot of love on this page for international football but I don't get why. I just like watching football and seeing the worlds best go at it in a different format outside of their respective clubs and teams. It's more nationalistic and feels more authentic than they big money transfer teams we see now.

Last nights penalty shootout was great, some dire misses and a real roller coaster of emotions.



28 Jun 2016 05:51:40
Does any one agree with me that Woy playing Rooney in CM was a similar mistake to the one Klopp has made in playing Milner at CM repeatedly?
Both players are headless chickens with no real understanding of the game. Look s lost and embarrassed in midfield.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 28 Jun 2016 07:47:12
No, IMO. Rooney hasn't had a good international tournament since Euro 2004 and hasn't had a good season in 5 years while unlike Woy who had better midfielder like Hendo to choose from, Klopp had to play Milner in midfield due to injuries and absences because when all were fit, Milner played wide. Woy was stupid to have taken off form players like Rooney and Wilshere who are poor players and were off form due to blind lotalty. The comparison with Klopp is non existent.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 08:03:56
I was not criticizing Klopp. Just saying that Rooney is just like Milner in CM, all huff and puff but brain dead when it comes to understanding what actually is a CM's role in the team. Of course Klopp did not have much of a choice, so that is not on him completely but he could have played Lucas with Can in midfield.

3.) 28 Jun 2016 11:55:08
Id take Milner over Rooney any day.



08 Jun 2016 16:04:48
Question for ED001 and Ed002:
Is Mane seen as an alternative to Gotze or does Klopp want both? Mane's a winger while Gotze's a CAM so i hope its both.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - Try not to complicate matters. Hopeless.}

1.) 08 Jun 2016 16:31:58
Here's my best guess:

Klopp's top winger target was Dembele, and then after him, Gotze.

Gotze isn't a wide winger, but he's played both RW and LW for both Germany and Bayern. He's a versatile forward.

LFC failed to land either.

So, IMHO, the Mane rumors are coming from the Committee. I think Klopp has left it to the Committee now that the club failed to get his two top targets, and (surprise! ) they have an EPL winger at the top of their list in Mane.

In fairness to the Committee, it seems likely they had identified Teixeiria in January. Klopp must be said to have made a big mistake in veto'ing that transfer. He probably did it because he thought he could land Dembele/ Gotze for less, but that didn't happen. Teixeira would have been far better than all remaining options and actually wanted to come.

Teixeira also could have helped us in Europa and in the EPL after January. Like I said, it was a huge fee, but Teixeira wanted to play for the shirt.

2.) 08 Jun 2016 16:55:05
Texeira just want to get out of cold Ukraine.

3.) 08 Jun 2016 17:00:47
Nailed it Fear. I can honestly see no other way any of this could have gone down.

I'd say Ian Ayre most likely put in low bids for klopps top targets just to get Mane because he thinks he knows more than Klopp. Who does he think he his. let's round up the pitch forks and GET HIM BOYS!

4.) 08 Jun 2016 17:12:31
Fear, is there any substance to any of what you said? It's completely made up. Committee making up rumors? How do you know matip wasn't our top target? Teixiera wanted to play for the shirt so much he accepted a huge wage packet and went to a dire league. The window hasn't even opened yet let alone closed!

5.) 08 Jun 2016 17:32:30
Is there any substance? The post is the substance. Did you read what I said in my first line? I said it's my best guess.

It was widely reported that Klopp called Dembele days before he signed with BvB, to try to convince him to come to LFC. It didn't work.

Also, the Gotze dealings have been widely reported on.

Now Mane is popping up as a top target, and as an EPL player he's not a player who Klopp has seen a lot of (unlike Dembele or Gotze) . So, this is my theory as to why that is.

Feel free to disagree/ disbelieve, I couldn't care less.

But at least get your facts straight, on Teixeira, the fee wasn't up to him. It was set by Donetsk, not Teixeira. PS: If you've been reading the news, Juning has bought Inter-Milan and Teixeira and Ramires are likely moving to Serie A.

6.) 08 Jun 2016 17:43:31
Teixira did agree to go though right. He could have stayed. He had a contract. They threw money at him and he took it. Your'e full of conspiracy theories yet can't accept the simple one that a player took money over playing for Liverpool. Gotze isn't over yet. Bayern want rid. No idea about that supposed phone call but maybe dembele just wanted to play European football. Does it have to be down to much more than that?

7.) 08 Jun 2016 17:47:13
I think too many people are far up klopps a** to be honest. It's getting ridiculous now, every mistake the man makes there's an excuse but if it was Rogers or someone else we would all be on their backs. At the end of the day, manager has the final say, if mane is first, second or third choice it doesn't matter because it's klopp choice if he want to fund £30m on that sort of player. Not the transfer committee, not Ian ayre. I would blame them for other things like targeting or scouting the wrong sort of players, or not getting in our top targets, but when the manager says yes go ahead and get mane, who's fault is it ultimately? I for one, think there are much better players out there for the sort of money they would ask for but it happens every year so there's no shocks or suprises. Last year we spent £32.5m on benteke and there where much better players out there for that price but that's Liverpool for you. I've said quite a few times during this transfer window that we don't seem to be targeting the right sort of players and apparently I'm whinging so there you go. Those same people don't rate mane. Go figure.

{Ed002's Note - You are talking about the man who got Caulker in to the club.}

8.) 08 Jun 2016 18:39:16
I can't blame the manager when we make the same mistakes year after year with different managers.
What is the link with Southampton?
Are our scouts aware of any other clubs? Why do we pay 20-30% over the odds for Southampton players?

Putting aside the Mane link, there is clearly a problem with recruitment and it cannot just be down to the managers.

9.) 08 Jun 2016 19:29:52
Exactly ed02. I rate klopp but some people think he's Guaranga incarnate or something.

10.) 09 Jun 2016 00:46:48
Can we just drop the term transfer committee. Pretty sure Rodgers coined this. Pleb.

Do people seriously think other clubs don't have a scouting network, head scouts, board of directors, FDs, sporting directors, managers and coaches all weighing in on decisions? You'd think LFC were the only team that had multiple stakeholders weighing in on transfer decisions.

Was the boot room a committee too?

Also, the Gotze deal isn't off. The transfer window isn't open yet either.

11.) 09 Jun 2016 09:10:40
Ron: It *does* seem like the places that LFC seems to focus on for transfer targets seem to stay the same year, to year, no matter who is manager.

I can't believe we may end up going back to the Southhampton well for another overrated/ overvalued player, even with Klopp at the helm.

Was not impressed with Coutinho last night. Lost the ball too many times in spite of taking few risks. Firmino was good though, pressed a lot and got into goal scoring positions. Just needs to work on his composure in front of goal a little.

I really hope he has his breakthrough season in 2017/ 18. Would be genuine competition for Lallana and Gini and no doubt has world class potential to run our midfield for the forceeable future. The question is if he can stay fit for long periods to fulfill his potential.

Vardy struts around a lot nowadays. He has that air of arrogance to him after last season. The guy thinks he has done it all and his poor performances this season reflect that. On the other hand, we have people like Kante that have gone about their job quietly and efficiently while Vardy carries a huge chip on his shoulder.

Agree with Harry here. I will be disappointed if the club splurges more money on more teenagers this summer. We need proven talent that can deliver immediately for the next 3-4 seasons while Ojo and Co mature. Not more youngsters to compete 3-4 seasons from now with the huge number of youngsters already at the club. Players like Malcom and Murphy hopefully will not come here and block Ojo and Woodburn's progress. Why not just spend a little bit more on the likes of Douglas Costa who would deliver instantly and provides the width and pace our frontline so desperately needs in Mane's absence?
