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.}

Lorenzo Insigne has just signed a new contract with Napoli. Now we know why Harry changed his username well in advance before someone called him out on it. He is definitely in the know when it comes to Insigne.
Don't worry buddy. I am sure Klopp will sign one of your secret footballer crushes sooner rather than later.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 22 Apr 2017 12:20:16
Harry is just going through the motions. He probably has had a word with Klopp and made his anger and frustrations known about why LFC did not attempt to lure Insigne and now changed his name to something which cannot be explained yet still leaves him under the category of attention seeker ;-)


2.) 22 Apr 2017 14:11:56
Should start taking bets for his next user name! It will depend who's having a good game in Europe at the time I suppose mind. I'll tell you who it won't be though, it won't be a Liverpool player. Harry doesn't do Liverpool and positivity together!


3.) 22 Apr 2017 14:16:26
Ha Ha. I called Mr Klopp and he wasn't impressed with my running! Apparently he is looking at Ussain Bolt's brother!


4.) 22 Apr 2017 14:44:17
Welsh

Lol. I'll give you a tip. This lad is a young player and actually released from City and joined the youth at the club "X". Linked to Spurs in the past. He has shabby hair and is tall. One of the brightest deep lying midfielder. 😎 Coming soon ❤️.


5.) 22 Apr 2017 14:56:37
My money is on 'My name is Naby Keita and I am the best central midfielder alive'.
Go for it Harry.


6.) 22 Apr 2017 17:11:10
Indian, or better yet "My name is David Silva" or "Santi Carzola" as he always compares our mids to these two.

26 Mar 2017 07:46:18
Just wanted Ed001's opinion on Nastasic's time at Schalke so far. You suggested that he is a player we have had scouted as a potential CB partner for Matip. After his torrid time at MCFC (where he moved a bit too soon), how has he gotten on?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen them a couple of times, not really enough to judge him, but I am told he has rebuilt his reputation and has been very good for them. Apparently he learnt a lot at City and has matured because of it.}


1.) 26 Mar 2017 07:52:23
Good to know that Ed001. Really hope we go in for him (from what a bunch of my friends in Frankfurt told me about him) . Apparently, he has regained his confidence and seems more mature as a player and his decision making has improved considerably. Definitely an upgrade on Lovren and Klavan.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't get too excited, we are keeping tabs on him but someone will need to leave before he would arrive. Not sure we will be able to unload any of them this summer.}


2.) 26 Mar 2017 08:59:56
That is kinda worrying imo. Neither LOvren or Klavan have the consistency to start for a title challenging team and GOmez is still a kid recovering from a serious injury. Matip needs a quality partner, especially when Karius is still settling in. Can see our leaky defense persisting next season as well.


 

 

12 Nov 2016 14:28:15
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
Ed02
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
Agger

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.

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.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 03 Jul 2016 07:43:23
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
indian buzzer, what part of india are you from mate.


7.) 03 Jul 2016 12:26:23
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.

But what about Sessegnon not being able to train full time? And is'nt he still going to school? That would probably mean him not training full time and maybe even missing some crunch games for us. Relying on a 17 year old no matter how good to be first choice is a very dangerous gamble.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - he can train plenty, he is 17 in the summer, he will be able to do his schooling around away games. He will be in college, technically, not school, from next year.}

Why would he leave? Pretty sure Klopp has told TAA he is eventually bound to replace the supremely average Clyne. Could be our first choice RB for the next decade or so.

Over the next 10 years? LOL
He is 28 this summer mate. Do your research. We have already seen the best of Lovren, and it simply is not good enough to warrant being a regular first team player. If no quality CB is signed this summer, next season is going to be another bummer.

Have to agree with Harry here. Klopp's policy of giving youngsters plentiful of chances at least while at LFC is just a myth. How many young players have gone on to establish themselves in the first team? Why were the likes of Wilson and Ojo shunned when Mane was away at AFCON? I have only seen senior players being shifted out of position on a constant basis to accommodate as many first team players as possible. Not only has it affected the productivity of players like Can, Lucas, Origi and Firmino, but also stopped players like Ojo, Gomez TAA and Wilson getting decent opportunities.
Klopp needs to earn his money now. Either step up or leave the job for someone who can actually put earn his wages and win us some titles.

This is one signing i really hope LFC can pull off. Keita will make a big difference to our midfield. Unlike Lallana, he shows up for all games and his overall qualities dwarf that of the likes of Can and Hendo.

I want us to sign players who want to play for the club, not those who prioritize their lifestyle. If they want to live in London, then Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal are welcome to them. Players need to be dedicated. No more Balotellis or Aquilanis needed at LFC.
