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.}



01 Jun 2017 13:10:58
Can't find any post from Eds confirming or dismissing Salah rumors. Let us know when you can please Eds, we need you!
I've been crossing my fingers for the Brandt deal, but if it is Salah, I'll get behind it all the way. In Klopp we trust!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Thye interest in Salah is seemingly there because Brandt wants assurances. It is an odd choice given he is primarily a right winger and Liverpool need a left winger. I have no confirmation of any of this.}

1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:46:56
It does seem a little odd ed but perhaps the club are confident he or Mane could play from the other side. In fact I think Mane has done previously and his best form before moving to Liverpool was actually centrally.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 14:50:18
Is it not also a little insecure from Brandt wanting assurances? If he is the clubs primary target he should be aware we aren't after a substitute, if he wants to play he'll have to perform and train well or like anyone in the squad he'll be out. I don't know about you but I think players wanting assurances (some contractually) doesn't sit well with me. Back yourself, work hard and use your brain. If you are number 1 target you'll be thought of as important to the team.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely mate..

3.) 01 Jun 2017 15:02:21
Well said Brandt needs to believe in himself as he's a good player.

Brandt would be my preferred option but im happy with Salah if that's who the club choose.

4.) 01 Jun 2017 14:58:33
Isn't Salah left footed? Mane right footed?

Can't say I am over excited if Salah had to join due to him failing at Chelsea but both are able to play on either side.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 15:00:25
He is left footed though, if that makes any difference.

6.) 01 Jun 2017 15:09:59
Cool, thanks for the answer Ed002. I won't give up hope of Brandt copping on and signing on the dotted line, then. A huge club in the CL and he will start games, of course he will. But there are 5 or 6 other very good forward players in the squad, you have to earn your place mate.

7.) 01 Jun 2017 15:13:08
i thought he couldn't settle in the UK previously? im not so sure he is even interested in coming back after all that, but who knows i guess, navas once refused to leave spain as he'd be homesick.

{Ed002's Note - For a coiuple of reasons he was unable to settle at Chelsea.}

8.) 01 Jun 2017 15:27:26
For me brandt should go join a step up from leverkusen but somewhere he knows he will play

No player in thr history of the game joins one of the big guns and doesn't have uber competion for him place.

Assurances can't exist. Every player will ave ups and downs in a season and when its time to be droppes ots your time, very few never have those peaks.

If its someones time and theu habe certain obligstions in their contract then what's the manager meant to do.

There is not one guarenteed starter in are team. Every single one cane be dropped.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

9.) 01 Jun 2017 15:33:14
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited by the prospect of Mane and Salah on the wings. Just because it didn't work out at Chelsea under Mourinho means nothing, look at DeBruyne? Just pay the fee and get him in if he wants to come.

10.) 01 Jun 2017 16:15:20
StraightTalk, I was arguing the exact same thing as you a few days ago yet for some reason, everyone massively downvoted me for it, while everyone agrees with you today!

If a big club is after you the way Liverpool are, and you're interested, then don't p*ss about with this 'assurances' crap. Accept it for what it is and either take the risk or leave it. I know he's looking after himself, but he can't wrap himself in cotton wool either.

11.) 01 Jun 2017 16:15:42
Also, Mane has been very capable on the left flank in the past.

12.) 01 Jun 2017 16:50:10
Ed002, I know your traveling mate, are you able to ask and find out from anyone if there is fact in these rumours? Im just not sure as it seems its come from out of the blue. Nothing on Sharkopod either. Unlesd its come about because of Brandt wanting assurances as explained.

13.) 01 Jun 2017 17:58:55
That's why I don't understand why people give out saying Klopp has assured Karius he would be no1 when, regardless of what assurances are made if the player is not training or playing as good as was first thought assurances are irrelevant.

I think rather than people suggesting klopp was wrong for saying it, should be saying good job on taking it on the chin and making a call that needed to be made. Karius could push on but with no motivation he won't at lfc anyway. Further to this I'm sure klopp assured him he could be no1 but would have a fight on his hands. Doubt he told him he was cast iron.

If Brandt needs assurances he's missing a big attribute confidence.

14.) 01 Jun 2017 18:10:38
going backwards with salah . back to brendas days playing people in wrong positions trying to fit square pegs in eound holes while our competition sifns better players and moves further away from us . use the youth players don't buy stupidly.



01 Jun 2017 13:58:06
Would Gaya be on that list of left-backs by any chance, Ed001?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:15:34
Cool. Thanks Ed. Gaya and Tierney would be my choices then.

2.) 01 Jun 2017 15:21:19
Wouldn't Gaya be as expensive as Mendy? Cannot see the club spending that sort of money on a fullback (even though I think we should) . Fear its going to be Robertson, but I would rather just persist with Milner if the likely incomings are no better than what we already have at LB.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 15:04:05
Gaya would be a good choice!

Ed001 who would your choice be?

{Ed001's Note - probably Gaya as well, though I have not seen all the left backs around.}

4.) 01 Jun 2017 15:28:49
Yeah and Tierney wouldn't be cheap either. But this is the summer we have to spend big and LB is the position we should do it for. I know am dreaming that we might actually get Gaya and Tierney, but it's too upsetting to imagine us going into 17/ 18 with Hull City's left-backs. :/.

5.) 01 Jun 2017 16:01:15
I'd go for Bertrand Ed001. Premier league proven and would cost less. Very consistent and solid player imo.
Any Spanish full back worries me (after what happened with Moreno) . They just cannot defend (Azpilicueta aside) . Gaya would be a big risk in that respect.

30 Aug 2017 22:42:34
Eds have you any clues about which CB could leave if VVD arrives? Any clubs interested in any of them? Or would we likely just end up with 5 at this stage with Joe stacking his claim at RB?
Thanks a mil and good luck tomorrow!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - it is unlikely any of them will leave.}



30 Aug 2017 14:45:25
Reports of a Medical for Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 30 Aug 2017 15:02:41
2 more medicals to go then 👍.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 15:08:49
Where did you read / hear the reports?

3.) 30 Aug 2017 15:10:00
Interesting that this didn't pick up. Heard on the bbc radio news that we apperently reached an agreement. didn't hear the fee so i haven posted it.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 15:16:23
Please don't sing him, we don't buy players for 35 mil to sit on the bench, he will be playing and will ruin our form and offers nothing to us. It will be a huge step backward and I doubt we will be able to challenge for top four with him in the side why can't the club see that! .



29 Aug 2017 13:20:23
According to L'Equipe, Liverpool have made a revised bid for Thomas Lemar. The new offer is €80m - €50m down, €30m next summer - plus a loan of Divock Origi for a season.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 29 Aug 2017 13:27:30
As long as it’s a loan I don’t mind xD report I read didn’t say what it would be lol.



10 Aug 2017 16:57:27
Just want to say that IF we do fend off Barcelona and keep hold of Couts AND get VVD on board (think Keita/ Ox would be bonuses) then not only will we have a fantastic team but it will also be a real statement of intent that Liverpool are serious about reclaiming our place as one of Europe's elite clubs and taking proper runs at winning league and European titles over the coming years. I understand that's what Klopp wants to do and we'll never achieve that status by selling our best players. Alonso, Masch, Suarez, (less so Sterling, Torres), enough is enough. Putting the foot down and saying no means NO is a hugely admirable stance and really sends out the right signals. And for anyone that says Southampton are right to do the same, it's not like they'll be in the Champion's League any time soon, is it?
Thanks for reading.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 10 Aug 2017 17:15:52
I agree. What Klopp wants and what he gets might not be the same thing but you cannot doubt his intent. VVD to add to the current squad would be a real improvement on last year. Tactical mistakes and a bit of bad luck last season led to us missing top 3. If he has learnt from his mistakes and gets the players he wants I think top 3 plus a trophy this season.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 18:04:10
Love a good ' statement of intent' lol just need a few more 'some screens' on here.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 18:56:35
A well known sports breakfast show were saying the same this morning. All the big clubs want someone to stand and say no to the PSG, Barce and Madrid big boys, maybe Klopp is the one to do it.

{Ed025's Note - and i thought superman was fictional..

4.) 10 Aug 2017 20:56:32
It's a good thing you're funny, Ed025. Because Ron ain't winning any charisma awards anytime soon. But hey, good luck with winning that league of 14.

{Ed025's Note - you lot wont be far ahead im sure mate..

5.) 10 Aug 2017 21:27:28
Not all heros wear capes 😂 God save the klop. I like ed 025 he gives some friendly banter on this page it's good but some of you bite like Suarez.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 08:50:59
Oh I too enjoy his bantz. And the best part is watching (reading) thin-skinned people having fits and going into hyperdrive of spitting and screaming and crying. :)



29 Jun 2017 13:23:12
Newcastle's loan bid for Ojo rejected and Klopp says he won't be leaving this summer. Very good news for me as I do think he and Wilson will be very useful as backup for Salah and Mane.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 29 Jun 2017 13:58:51
It's a tough call for me, if he was guaranteed regular game time at Newcastle in front of 50k geordies you would think and hope that would benefit his development more than playing for our U23's and odd cup game for the 1st team.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 13:59:03
Poor decision in my eyes, give the lad some game time which in reality, aside from the cups, he isn't going to get much of with us this year.

3.) 29 Jun 2017 14:41:42
Poor decision. Ojo should go for the sake of his own career. He was not looked at by Klopp last season with Mane away.

4.) 29 Jun 2017 16:57:33
I understand Ojo was struggling with full fitness after his back injury. Think Ed 01 passed this on?

{Ed001's Note - yes he is only really now getting back to full fitness.}

5.) 29 Jun 2017 21:50:12
Great. his injuries were the only reason he was not involved. Klopp gave Woodburn opportunities and ojo is further along in his development. It is pretty obvious he likes ojobs also. Stronger and more suited to slot into the premier league too regardless of age. He is the perfect player to have as backup and to keep and develop one on one, and by training with our couches and top quality player every day.

6.) 30 Jun 2017 10:00:48
I really think he could be useful. After mane and Salah have left skid marks all over the opposition's fullbacks it'll be good to have fresh legs to come on and make them suffer more. With a proper full season under his belt he will compete with Wilson for minutes in the first team and I have a feeling he'll win that competition. many have complained about him not being given a chance, but it's true he was not fit. Next season he will get his chance.

I think Ward could potentially be that improvement. Haven't seen enough of Karius to know if he could be. But will do no harm to rotate them a bit and see who comes out on top.

hahaha, I had to read that 3 times, he called Milner world class! LOL
In that case, Barcelona should sign him to replace Iniesta.

He's been uninjured and training all summer, most recently with the U23s. Will need a long time to get match fit, but passing a medical won't be a problem.
