Hey Eds,
I was just reading your long list of right backs we've looked at and wondered if we still hold interest in Ricardo Pereira, or has it moved on or is he off somewhere else? Thanks a mil. Enjoy the season finale!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I believe he is off somewhere else.}

1.) 20 Apr 2018 10:37:34
Where do I find this long list of right backs?

2.) 20 Apr 2018 10:45:14
On a list with a lot of named right backs.
Happy to help. :-)

3.) 20 Apr 2018 14:40:50
{Ed001's Note - yes right back, we have looked at hundreds mate, bit soon to get certain names of the likely targets. We have looked at Hysaj, but I would expect him to be out of reach now with Napoli not wanting to sell. The Sociedad right back Odriozola, though he is a bit too attacking for my liking, as he also play midfield. There are a few in Germany, Heinrichs, Elvedi and Weiser and the Leipzig one, whose name I have forgotten. Lots more too though how many of them will even be in the thinking when it comes time to try and buy one I don't know right now. Oh Bilbao's right back. }

If anyone wants to find it again in future, just search for Odriozola.

4.) 20 Apr 2018 19:01:27
Lol love the reply killinghome, thanks MK.

5.) 22 Apr 2018 14:31:46
Hehe, yep that's exactly the post I had read, except I searched for Elvedi. Names like these make the search function easy. ;)



19 Jan 2018 13:11:07
Just read Liverpool could 'swoop' for Marcelo Brozovic. Presumably like a peregrine falcon picking up a plump pigeon. Eds do y'all know if there is any form of interest from Liverpool in this fella?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but there is interest from others.}

1.) 19 Jan 2018 14:53:47
Made me laugh 😂 Classic transfer rumour metaphoric chat from the rumour mill.

2.) 20 Jan 2018 02:48:30
Im sure he cleans my car in Kenny.



06 Jun 2017 10:32:08
Eds has City's Mendy bid been rejected? Do you expect they will still make a deal? Is there any crumb of hope that he could end up at Liverpool instead? Thanks.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - City have not met the asking price. They might well return but Pep has other options to go for.}

1.) 06 Jun 2017 10:42:02
Looks like City will go after Bertrand. Ed002 has also mentioned Bernat and both options would be much cheaper for City compared to Mendy.
Mendy though will have to force the move imo. Monaco may not budge on the asking price and after the money being set aside for VVD, I cannot see Klopp spending another 40 million on a defender.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 10:42:22
It must be a high asking price if city are thinking of looking elsewhere. I assume it's very much an outside chance that we will get him?

3.) 06 Jun 2017 10:57:12
Mendy looks like a quality player, again I'm sat in the 'he's not 4x the player of Robertson' camp, But what I don't understand is this, the two positions we absolutely need to sort out are LB (with no offence to Milner at all) and LW. If we do get Salah and VVD neither have been sorted unless Salah will play out of position, and a massive amount of money has been spent.

My question to Ed's if available is if we do get VVD, will this affect our other targets due to the amount of £££ being spent on him?

Thanks in advance for all the hard work.

4.) 06 Jun 2017 11:37:29
Why do people keep saying Salah will play out of position? its infuriating research the bloody players yes Salah had a great season on the RW for Roma but he has played LW constantly for Basel and for Fiorentina, Our frontline do not stick to there positions you think all of Mane goals have come down the RW him hugging that line? no he has come inside and gone down the middle while Bobby went out wide Salah would be perfect for the club on the left or if Klopp wanted he could move Mane out to the Left since he played there for Southampton and Red Bull.

5.) 06 Jun 2017 15:12:00
Spot on, Kloppers. People are too fixated on where the players play in a front three knowing fully well that our front three interchange at will which is what the opposition defences cannot deal with. Salah can play on either side so don't get where him being "out of position" comes from.



06 Jun 2017 09:24:27
G'day Eds.
Any idea if Cédric Soares is among the right backs that Liverpool have interest in?
Thanks a bunch as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I don't expect him to move this summer, so it is irrelevant that we have interest in him.}

1.) 06 Jun 2017 10:45:46
Okay, thanks Ed001.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 10:55:53
Is a decent player though.



05 Jun 2017 13:34:49
Any idea if reports of Liverpool's interest in Santiago Arias are true please, Eds? Possible alternative to Pereira?
Thanks a million.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Santiago Arias has attracted interest from Swansea and West Ham after the previous interest of Chelsea and Manchester United waned. I am n ot aware of any approach by Liverpool.}

After the awful events at Sporting Lison's training ground it seems some of their players want to get the heck out of there ASAP. Bruno Fernandes is one and as we know he's been looked at as our Couts replacement. Rui Patricio would certainly be a fine signing. Carvalho? I don't think he's Klopp's kind of player. Martins? Maybe if we can't get Pulisic. What others would Ed or anyone else fancy rescuing?

Jurgen Meister

1.) 17 May 2018 13:42:14
He is certainly one of a number of players we are looking at to add an option similar to countinho's role.

2.) 17 May 2018 13:44:01
Martin's is pure quality would rip the life out of a lot of defenders in prem, silly pace an assists I would love him to come.

3.) 17 May 2018 14:15:43
I can't see us moving for Martin's unless one of our front three are leaving, and i do NOT want to see that happening under any circustances.

4.) 17 May 2018 14:38:30
I don’t know the stats but I would guess players coming to the premier league from Portugal have the lowest success rate of any other league that’s supplied more than 20 players.
I would be very careful of spending big money on anyone from Portugal.

5.) 17 May 2018 15:20:12
Tell that to Ronaldo, Nani, Luiz, Matic, Fernado and Fereira's Premier League medals!

6.) 17 May 2018 16:12:07
Gelson Martins will be a nice addition!

7.) 18 May 2018 04:41:35
What happened at Lisbon's training ground?

{Ed001's Note - a group of about 50 fans broke in during training, attacked the players and smashed the place up.}

8.) 18 May 2018 05:22:01
Thanks Ed001, I hadn't heard that.

{Ed001's Note - is this where I should advertise the news review of the day I do, which did mention it?}

9.) 18 May 2018 07:51:27
Apologies Ed001, I hadn't read the news review of the day before I asked the question, I scrolled down the banter pager first and saw something happened and asked what.

{Ed001's Note - it was in yesterday's mate, no need to apologise, it is not obligatory to read it or anything, but it would be silly of me not to mention it was in there and give it a plug.}



25 Apr 2018 13:33:47
My dog that Ladyman chap is a dope. "Liverpool must go away from home and take the life out of the game. It is not something they are used to, it does not come naturally to them and is not something they are particularly good at. "

Hasn't he been paying attention all season? We scored 7 in Maribor, 3 in Sevilla, 5 in Porto, 2 in Manchester, we have 39 away goals in the league and only failed to score in 3 of our 18 away games. Taking the life out of the game is the last thing we should or will do. Scoring away goals will put paid to any ideas Roma have of doing us like they did Barca. I'm going for 3-2 to Liverpool with one each from Bobby, Mo and Sadio, of course. :)

Jurgen Meister

1.) 25 Apr 2018 13:41:59
completely agree with this, coupled with the fact that they need to score 3!

this means they can't sit back and will have to hunt for goals meaning they should be exposed at the back.

i would put all my savings that one of our front 3 will get atleast 1 goal in the away leg.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 13:43:37
Agree - the worst thing we can do is sit back and invite them to attack, it’s not in our nature and we’re not a side that performs at our best that way. We need to take the game to them and make sure they never have any time on the ball, can’t get any rythm, force turnovers and use our most lethal weapon which is our front three, not our back 4.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 13:49:14
Same tactics as the second leg at city and we will get over the line.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 13:51:46
they won't sit back. They will look at the first 20 minutes and the last 10 and know that they will have opportunities. This is far from over. Ask Barcelona.

5.) 25 Apr 2018 14:23:48
Roma are not at the same level of Citeh

Barca had issues with tactics and attitude in Rome

Klopp will have us ready.

So long as we have our three up front and Henderson and Milner plus another in midfield we will get the job done.

Forget no score draws and single away goals in Europe as we have taken it all to a me level.

This is the heavy metal football roller coaster ride we have been promised.

Just enjoy the ride.

Our job is to support and believe!

6.) 25 Apr 2018 14:34:11
Difference is, stop messi you stop Barca. We have 3 that need stopping. Salah got 2 Bobby got 2 and Mane should have scored 3.

7.) 25 Apr 2018 15:04:11
The fact that Barcelona have went out the way they did is a good warning to Liverpool in the away match. Im sure the players will know there is work to be done.

Im more concerned about loosing anymore players than what Roma have to offer.

8.) 25 Apr 2018 15:24:35
The best thing that could've happened for Liverpool in this situation is Barcelona losing in Rome. We've learnt by someone else's mistake. We'll win in Rome aslong as we play our game.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 15:41:09
It’s the semi finals of the champions league. No mater what the result was tonight it was never going to be over. Once again we got shafted by a referee though, that was never a penalty.

10.) 25 Apr 2018 16:02:42
Anonymous Woolback, really not sure on the pen decision myself with the way things are withing the sport currently, even after countless replays. As far as I have always been aware since I myself played a s a youth, penalties are only given for intentional handballs right?

The last few seasons since the likes of Sky/ BT have begun hiring ex referees to analyse such situations has gotten me second guessing on this though.

Seems to me that nobody, including current/ ex referees and players are unsure on this rule too - it's really not rocked science - it's either a clearly intentional handball trying to gain an unfair advantage or it's not.

Now they discuss distance between player and ball, speed the ball is moving, hands tucked in or to the side regardless of mentioning issues like the defending player's balance, so needing his hands in the natural position down by his side - they've over-complicated it in my opinion - it's either a clear and intentional handball or it's play on surely.

11.) 25 Apr 2018 16:17:27
Strange thing is that if Milners arms were down by his side, it would have totally blocked the shot, instead it took a deflection off the inner side of his arm - could have gone in the goal.

12.) 25 Apr 2018 17:55:32
I've seen so many similar situations where the penalty was not given. Based on the premise that handling the ball was not intentional and the shot hit the defender from point blank range. What I do know is that the ref was on the left of the box, just outside it. Milner was in the middle of the box towards the right side, and the ball hit his left side and his left arm. Therefore, not the clearest of views for the ref. It's all subjective I suppose.

13.) 25 Apr 2018 19:28:26
We need to play to win. They need to score so they’ll not park the bus and they’ll come at us, which is when we’re at our best. They can’t handle pace and we will score.



22 Jan 2018 08:35:08
WS gave Marco Grujic a 7.36 Rating for his 78 minute Cardiff debut. 4 aerial duels won, 2 shots on goal and 1 yellow card. Very promising. Next up, a match-winning performance vs Man City followed by a promotion push. Would love to see him really fulfill his potential.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 22 Jan 2018 08:41:28
His discipline needs a bit of work, he seems to get a yellow card every game no matter how long he plays. Either way, a string of games should help him develop.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 08:55:03
He got an early yellow which curtailed him a little.



28 Dec 2017 13:27:34
Since October Max Meyer has been playing in the deep lying midfield role. Since then Schalke 04 are undefeated. Although it has been in front of a back 3, I can imagine Klopp liking him for something similar. He doesn't like the destroyer type DMC but a Pirlo type number 6 who the vision and ability to spray accurate balls out from his own half, like Hendo is ok at sometimes but could really be upgraded on. I don't know how well this would work in the Prem since his tackling and strength is lacking, but at 21 he could really grow into the role. With Keita and Ox/ Gini/ Lallana charging back and forth either side of him I could see that being a pretty sexy midfield 3 for years to come. With Lemar, Bobby, Salah in front. Mmmmmm. :)

Jurgen Meister

1.) 28 Dec 2017 13:42:01
So he like a Pirlo type player yet I don’t know a single time he’s had one or set up to play with one?

2.) 28 Dec 2017 14:02:16
Our squad is now becoming a lot stronger and starting to takes shape, Man city are on another planet at the moment, but we can certainly compete with the other top 6 teams in terms of squad strength. I have said top 4 and a good Champions league cup run would be another progressive season for us, considering we were told we only got 4th last season because we had no European mid week games. That maybe true the owners have fully backed the Manager since May and I am happy to head into the 2nd part of the season in the top 4 and the knockout stages of the Champions League, it shows we are improving as a squad.
All the best for A happy new year to all the site posters and EDS.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 14:54:28
Ysoserious, Max Meyer is not good enough to play in our midfield whether it be in the deep or shallow role. And if you think him playing there is the reason Schalke are doing well then you really need to look deeper. Their success is due to them having one of the finest young managers in Europe in the name of Domenico Tedesco who at 31 (Naldo his CB is older at 32) has brought on this very young and talented team (their academy is arguably the best in Germany) to second in the table with his free flowing brand of football based on energy, youth and enthusiasm. Nothing to do with Meyer or any other player.

4.) 28 Dec 2017 15:08:16
I agree mate. Now that we've FINALLY strengthened the defense we will hopefully push for 2nd place, CL-QF or better and, with a bit of luck, put an FA Cup in the cabinet at the end of the season. I'd love Couts to stay but if he's set on leaving he'll be replaced with comparable quality. I'd actually be more upset to lose Salah because I think it'd be harder to replace a player of his particular skill set, although I guess Mane could be that if and when he sorts his head out, which maybe Keita can help him do. Replacing Can and Mignolet in the summer will help, too.

5.) 28 Dec 2017 15:22:01
Except that it's Tedesco who converted Meyer into that role and it's clearly working. I do hope you won't be disgusted and slag him off too much if he signs for Liverpool. He's 21, has 4 senior caps and 1 goal for Germany and was a big part of the team that won the European Under-21 Championship in the summer. If you can't see the potential there, then I'm glad you're not manager.

6.) 28 Dec 2017 22:33:28
I was told in the summer that he was seriously being looked at, whether that interest still remains I don't know, but I was also told that we were not really interested in Van Dyk so maybe I was totally misinformed as it wasn't the regular lad I've normally gotten info off in the past.



28 Dec 2017 10:50:44
Hey Eds and reds, happy holidays.
Just listened to the sharkopod again and you didn't mention an anchorman midfielder. You think Liverpool could go after a number 6 in January or is Klopp happy with what he's got? Surely not. With Hendo injury prone and Can on the way out there seems to be space for strengthening there. Are they considering Marvelous Nakamba or anyone else you know of?
Thanks a million and have a great weekend.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Nobby Keita is joining in the summer. The club already has Grujic who Klopp won't play so adding another makes no sense unless someone is to be sold. There are a number of midfield players the club has an interest in.}

1.) 28 Dec 2017 13:36:16
So that's Gruijic and Can out with Max Meyer and Andre Gomes coming in. Thanks Ed002.

Haha, come on Ed001 surely, a 29 year old Championship left back with one assist in 29 games is the answer to our prayers. Knockaert and Izquierdo are decent players but not really good enough for Liverpool and the premium on Premier League players means we'd get better value elsewhere. And good grief another Redmond fan. Please give it up, he is just pants. Is it because he scored a goal on Saturday? You know that's his first all season? He's not even good enough for Southampton and Harry Wilson is already a better player than Redmond.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - Redmond has been awful all season.}

aoe if you're asking whether anyone would know then yes, probably some of the people who work in the youth setup would know. But for actual information about promising young right backs at the club then look no further than Corey Whelan. Neither Flanagan nor Randall are close to good enough and will be let go in the summer. Whelan is a Republic of Ireland U21 International and was Liverpool U23 captain until going to Yeovil on loan in January. He did fairly well for them starting 9 games and scoring his first senior goal. He's a big lad who can also play at CB but does have decent ability with the ball. Whether he can 'step up' or not is not something that should be asked of him at this stage and regardless we need to buy a senior right back to replace and improve upon Clyne. I'd argue that we also need to buy in a replacement/ upgrade on Moreno as well but that's a separate conversation. Trent is the one who already stepped up from the youth and has a great future, don't take that for granted, kids like him don't come along very often.

Dead right on Grujic, Ed001. He had a good start at Cardiff, played a few good games and had the perfect chance to establish himself and be a key part of a promotion winning team. He would then have been well set up to play in the Prem next season whether for Cardiff, ourselves, or whoever, which would really help his work permit issue. But, the lad has really blown it. After going away with the Serbian national team he seemed to come back with a stinking attitude. A couple of rotten performances later and he was dropped from the team. He made his comeback on Saturday, coming off the bench after 10 minutes, only to be substituted himself at half-time, the ultimate endorsement. He basically charged around like a hooligan for 35 minutes, got booked and should and would have been sent off if he wasn't taken off.

Like most of the young players mentioned above it's their work ethic that let's them down. Chirivella would be a useful squad option, although he has been consistent without being spectacular, and Ndidi for example would be preferable. I was disappointed Woodburn didn't start against Stoke, he couldn't have been worse than Ings who looked totally lost at LF. Hopefully Brewster can pick up where he left off and become an option next season. Origi is way way too inconsistent. Getting Markovic and Sturridge off the wage bill will be useful. If you imagine a midfield of Hendo-Keita-Ox being backed up by Ndidi-Ceballos-Trent it certainly looks pretty decent for the foreseeable future.

Oh just stop this nonsense, you troll. Do you work for The FSB or what? This is completely irrelevant. Hendo plays behind two other midfielders whose job it is to drive forward with the ball from midfield, most commonly Gini or Ox, or Emre when he wasn't playing the deeper role. Klopp's number 6 is under instructions to look up and switch the play or play balls behind the defense. In-spite of this Hendo completed 9 dribbles this season, so yes, he is capable of it.

You want to bring back Dean Sturridge? Are we that desperate?

Seriously though, his nephew made a grand total of one start and 5 brief sub appearances (goals 0 assists 0) in four months at West Brom. Who would you tell that he's lost his place on the bench to bring this guy in who has no future at the club?

Oh thank dog! I thought my company's IT department had finally caught me and blocked this site. What a terrible Monday morning!

I'm not a betting man either, but I'll give you odds of twelvety-to-one that we'll sign any players going to the World Cup before they fly off to Russia (Fekir, Dembele, Odriozola and Butland? ) and those who aren't going we'll sign during the tournament (Ceballos, Reina, Max) . So, they'll all have time for house-hunting and a stroll around Liverpool One before reporting for pre-season. And all the Eds can put their feet up for the summer and relax. (Actually, the former is probably more likely than the latter. )

Madrid can keep their filthy paws off Salah. None of their players or any player would be compensation for losing him. Once he buries Real with a hat-trick in the final I really hope he settles down and decides to stay a 'pool player for years to come. Come on, Mo! The Ballon d'Or beckons.
