Reading Liverpool are interested in Malaga's striker, Sandro. Any truth, Eds?
Much thanks in advance.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Malaga's Sando Ramirez is doing well at the moment. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool at this time and prior interest of Roma and Marseille has gone. Spurs remain keen on Sandro and Stoke has spoken with Ozcan - as has Newcastle, presumably via Rafa Benitez.}

{Ed001's Note - so he scores two goals and all of a sudden we get linked with him?}


1.) 26 Apr 2017 15:23:46
Of course Ed001, that's how this works! ;)

{Ed001's Note - ah yes, the old MOTD fever rears its head again!}

G'day Eds, and Happy Valentine's you beautiful rumour-mongers. :)
Are Liverpool really interested in Ryan Sessegnon? Others too? Looks like a real star for the future.
Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - Happy V day to you too mate. And yes, there is a genuine interest in Ryan Sessegnon, Man City and Arsenal are particularly keen on him as well.}


1.) 15 Feb 2017 07:35:19
Begs the question of where it leaves Juanma?


2.) 15 Feb 2017 07:52:53
Competing with Ryan?


3.) 15 Feb 2017 10:57:05
Yeah, Juanma is a very different type of player. I could see him replacing Klavan in the squad in another year or so. Sessegnon is an exciting talent but very very young and raw. Klopp will want to protect him for as long as possible and very gradually ease him into the team. Lots of big clubs want him though, so who knows where he could end up.


 

 

04 Jan 2017 16:36:50
Hey Eds, forgot to say, Merry New Year! :)
Just read sth about Emil Forsberg supposedly being called a 'Liverpool target'. It's a new one onj me. Have we any actual interest? Just his agent stirring things up?
Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - there is interest from us and a few others, Spurs I believe are another. As I understand it RBL were keen to say he was not for sale but the player and his agent would like a move. I don't know if that will mean we move for him or not, we certainly were not going to while he was 'not for sale' as RBL have pots of cash and would have need more than we could afford to tempt them.}


1.) 04 Jan 2017 20:38:05
Great answer. Thanks so much.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


2.) 08 Jan 2017 14:44:02
Do u know why Harry Wilson is not getting a look in Ed, U23 captain and scoring plenty of goals? Does Klopp not rate him or is it more he's physically or mentally not strong enough yet?

{Ed001's Note - he is just a bit behind some of the others for now, in the pecking order, due to their performances when they got a chance earlier in the season. He is defo in Klopp's thinking for the future.}


3.) 08 Jan 2017 21:35:56
Thanks for your time Ed

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}


4.) 09 Jan 2017 14:31:23
Ed001 - I've read it is RBL's policy to not block a player from moving to a better opportunity, is that your understanding as well? With RBL being a surprise title contender in the Bundesliga I would think RBL would like to hold on to Forsberg regardless of whether it looks like they are blocking the player from a better opportunity or not. Thanks for your time, Ed!

{Ed001's Note - it is not about blocking, it is about being the one Forsberg would choose from all his options available, if he was within our budget. They would be able to command a large price for him, with there being a lot of interest. I expect him to move, in the summer, if not now, I just think he will be out of our price range.}


 

 

22 Nov 2016 14:38:43
Tried the search engine, Ed. Couldn't see anywhere if you said, but does the Julian Brandt link have any truth or possibility to it?
Thanks a mil as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg with Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showing interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013. Liverpool certainly took a look at that time as well. He moved to Bayer Leverkusen in Janauary 2014 and continued to attract attention from Arsenal who made an approach in the summer of 2014. This past summer he was not for sale. He is still young and no doubt this January will see further interest but I suspect he will stay where he is. There has been no approach from Liverpool.}


1.) 23 Nov 2016 07:52:04
I think you mixed up Wolfsburg and Leverkusen.

{Ed002's Note - Where?}


2.) 23 Nov 2016 12:44:53
First sentence Ed002, {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg with Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showing interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013.

I assume it should have read {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Bayer Leverkusen with, Wolfsburg, Manchester United etc as he plays for Leverkusen. No biggie though as it's obvious what you meant.

{Ed002's Note - That was in the summer of 2013 when he played for Wolfsburg, so it is correct.}

23 May 2017 14:21:41
Which of those midfielders that you mentioned would you prefer, Ed01?
Personally, I think I'd lean towards Carvalho. Because, while Keita (Height: 172cm
Weight: 64kg) and Paredes (Height: 180cm Weight: 75kg) look very good players, Carvalho (Height: 187cm
Weight: 83kg) is just a beast. And I think that physical presence is exactly what we need in midfield. Emre brings it to an extent but it would be great to have The Emperor's imposing presence backing up our skillful swifts as they flit around between the forward lines.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I would rather get a good player than a big physical player. I really have no interest in height and weight, quality is what matters. I have not really seen Paredes play, not a lot of Keita and Carvalho has been very hit and miss when I see him so I don't know which I prefer.}


1.) 23 May 2017 15:09:11
If so, maybe Akinfenwa is a much better choice then.


2.) 23 May 2017 15:14:20
How big are mane and coutinho?


3.) 23 May 2017 15:02:58
Ed1, do you expect us to get one of those 3 above or are we likely to end up looking further down our list of targets? (Sorry I know it's a bit of a guesswork question)

{Ed001's Note - we never seem to get those high up the list, but then we have no longer got Ian Ayre doing the negotiating so who knows!}


4.) 23 May 2017 15:14:55
yeah i just saw you mention Carvalho can be slow and cumbersome at times. Another worry I'd have is the standard of the Portuguese League where he plays week in week out. Of course we need someone whose feet and brain are quick enough, too. I'm mostly just thinking out loud, since I find this particular position to be the most interesting to be filled. I'm already quite content with the other names mentioned to be our 1st choice fullbacks and forwards. Thanks very much for your thoughts, Ed. Have a great summer! (PS: I love the idea of post-season friendlies, bring on Sydney FC! )

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}


5.) 23 May 2017 15:19:38
Keita everyday of the week and twice on Sunday. Quality player every time I have seen him play!


6.) 23 May 2017 15:30:30
Thanks Ed1 for your reply. Here's hoping Klopp gets his number 1 choices.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate.}


7.) 23 May 2017 15:38:09
Kante is not big, neither was makalele the inventor of the position.


8.) 23 May 2017 16:01:31
whoever we get has to be better than the players we have already got we need quality to move forward, as long as the recruitment is better than it was the last time we made the cl, I will be happy.


9.) 23 May 2017 16:15:52
Claude Makalele did not invent the position. Franz Beckenbauer did in the 70's as the first "sweeper" who sat in front of the back four and tried to sweep away all possible danger.


10.) 23 May 2017 16:39:58
Someone has too much time on there hands lol.


11.) 23 May 2017 21:20:12
I'm with Ed on this one. Alonso was not a physical beast yet could play the DM or DLP role (the way Klopp uses Hendo as more of a launch pad than DM) seamlessly even at 40. That is the type of "two-way" player we need and Hendo and Can are almost there.

If we can't get anyone better to play the #6 role the Klopp wants then keep and improve those already here who know what Klopp wants in that role.


12.) 23 May 2017 21:43:19
Not seen much of Keita beyond highlights but he looks to be a very agile and technically gifted player. Kind of like Lallana but less headless and more end product.

Paredes is a top class player though. In the midfield he is very similar to Can. Robust, great passing range, loves a shot etc. However he is also a bit of a set piece specialist which puts him above Keita in my order of preference due to our lack of players who can take a corner!

Carvalho though, I simply do not rate. Yeah he is tall, fast and strong. However on the ball he is just dire. Cannot pass, erratic in the final third, constantly mistimes tackles. I really do not see him as an upgrade on Stewart or Lucas. If we are moving them on we should be looking to get in a player of more quality.

Keita is marginally better in open play than Paredes, but as I said above, Paredes brings with him a quality our squad is sorely lacking. I'd be happy with either player to be honest. Surely spells the end for Grujic though if Coutinho is to play deeper? He'd be 7th choice in the midfield behind Gini, Keita/ Paredes, Coutinho, Can, Hendo and Lallana. I can see the need for 6 midfielders with our 3 man system, but a 7th player would just never get a kick in my opinion. Be a shame to force our Grujic after 8 appearances!


13.) 23 May 2017 21:54:25
Ra1969, Beckenbauer invented the Libero or Sweeper position behind the defence, not the DM nor DLP position inform of it.


14.) 24 May 2017 00:39:40
LOL N Red. Check your facts, my friend. The person playing behind the defence is called a Goalkeeper. And the libero definitely plays in front of the back four.

{Ed007's Note - Armando Picchi played the sweeper (libero) for Helenio Herrera's Inter Milan in the 60's. The sweeper is the last line of defence and they're called a sweeper because they're there to sweep up mistakes by other defenders, they sit behind the CBs and n front of the GK, that's bssic tactics mate.}


 

 

14 Nov 2016 09:25:48
Gday, Eds. I understand when clubs with deep pockets are interested in our best players it's very difficult to stop them from leaving. But I for one really hope both Couts and Firmino stay for many years and win us shelves of silverware. Can't abide any of these idiots talking crap about Couts not being very good anyway and Can being 'indisciplined. '

So, my question is about Emre. Can you shed some light on why you're mentioning him as a possible departure, please? I used search and couldn't find where it was discussed. He's unhappy or what's the story?
Thanks a million, as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool add another central midfield player it would need to be at the expense of another. It is no more than that. The club cannot keep adding players without others leaving.}


1.) 14 Nov 2016 09:54:36
I don't think it has to anything to do with deep pockets. Successful clubs have money to spend, its no rocket science. Both the Milan clubs have new owners but wouldn't break any bank to buy any big names. FFP is a big hurdle for every club to manage.


2.) 14 Nov 2016 12:08:57
Ah I see. Of course, I know what you mean. But I'm a big fan of Can and thought Klopp was, too. Also, he's first choice atm so I thought it'd be strange to let him go.
Thanks for the response, Ed002.


 

 

01 Sep 2016 10:31:52
SO, well done Eds!

Now, after all that, we are 19 players lighter with 13 out on loan. Amazing to think that our squad was SO bloated that we could actually shed THIRTY TWO players and still not look like Hull. We now have a squad of roughly 30 'first-team-ready' players and an integrated U23s squad.

I think we have a pretty good foundation to build on now. I really hope in the coming windows we continue to only sign players that improve on or fill a gap in the squad and avoid signing players for the sake of it. When I think of some of the rubbish that has been and gone over the last 10 years alone it's embarrassing.

Now let's get behind the lads that are there and hope the training really bears fruit.
Thanks again to all the Eds, really reliable as always in helping us navigate through the transfer rumour storm. :)

So am I right Wisdom and Alberto are the only confirmed departures so far today?

It's one thing being stuck with decent players like Sakho and Markovic but if Balotelli is not off the books by midnight it's a big cockup. Just tie a ribbon around him and say thank you!

Jurgen Meister

1.) 31 Aug 2016 15:53:38
Balo has completed his medical at Nice, and will sign for them in the next few hours .


2.) 31 Aug 2016 16:00:05
Wisdom, Balotelli and Luis Alberto will all leave today. Markovic, Sakho and Ilori however will probably stay.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 16:07:36
Can markovic play lb!


4.) 31 Aug 2016 16:11:37
I'm happy for Sakho to stay as I think he's probably our best CB. Hopefully if he does stick around he can win Klopp over and get his place back!


5.) 31 Aug 2016 16:55:53
If Sakho can't discipline himself and be professional after all this time, I suspect it won't be any different this time too.


6.) 31 Aug 2016 17:13:42
If lovren or matip injured then you only have joe and klavan as back up so surely sakho could play some part if he stays.


7.) 31 Aug 2016 18:00:47
I'm ok with Sakho and Markovic staying. I wouldn't mind Markovic being given a chance in cup games to see how he does on the wing, so Long as doesn't prevent Ojo from getting his fair share of opportunities. Also happy if Sakho stays because a couple of injuries at CB and we'll be Glad to have him around.


8.) 31 Aug 2016 18:10:54
Sahko has to sort his head out first, if not, he will be with the U23`s till season`s end.


9.) 31 Aug 2016 18:42:28
Markovic going to play in Portugal, just heard,


10.) 31 Aug 2016 19:23:45
Good for him, if it`s true. he needs to be playing because he won`t get a game here.


 

 

31 Aug 2016 14:11:20
Reading Markovic will probably stay for now. Is that so Eds? I know there are some pretty cheap flights from Belgrade to Milan.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Asking price is too high - a loan might be possible. Another complete cock up.}


1.) 31 Aug 2016 16:02:42
It will be an exciting U23 side this season Ed002; Markovic, Ilori, Sakho!

{Ed002's Note - It will indeed.}


2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:18:20
I don`t know why we want top money for players every man and his dog knows we want rid of? It is pointless. it`s like selling an over-used card for the price of a new one. Just awful business management.

That'd be a dream alright. We'd then have lots of different options for the 1st team and different formations and a very decent squad depth, too.

But why don't we just sign Sanchez anyway? And Griezmann and Aubameyang and Benzema. That would be quite the front 4.

haha, yeah fair enough mate. I won't shed too many tears. We should be looking for better than a 7/ 10 player, anyway. Although I will miss his big pineapple shaped head.

If Wilson goes on loan it should be somewhere with a big stage like Celtic (assuming they don't get Roberts back) . I think he would thrive there and maybe make a bang in the CL. Otherwise, he and Woodburn can compete as backup to Mane/ Brandt this season. They both have the ability to play at the highest level imo.

And zimbo, I agree with what you say in principle. A policy along those lines has already started in the last 2 seasons with a preference given to creating ties with clubs in the north-east/ midlands. Hence the loan players going to Preston, Blackpool, Morecambe, Tranmere, Fleetwood, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Burnley, Wigan, etc. But creating ties with 2/ 3 clubs in the same league is fraught with ethical questions and should only be done on a friendly basis, e. g. the Klopp/ Wagner love in. We (or anyone) should never do what Chelsea did to Vitesse, for example. So, although it would be of benefit to have 2/ 3 players on loan at the same club and playing a style of football we like, it's not quite as simple as all that. However, it would be nice to see a system of loans that could actually benefit a few of our youngsters year in year out. I'd suggest next season Bolton back in the Championship and Blackburn in League 1 could be good options. And c'mon Huddersfield for the Prem!

Pogba so blatantly grabbing and throwing Hendo to the ground in the box really annoyed me. And instead they get a free-kick in a dangerous position!? >: (

Any chance of retrospective punishment for sth like that eds? Since the ref obviously didn't see it. Totally not ok imo.
Thanks
