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.

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.



22 Jun 2017 09:01:14
I just happened to be reading about our 2 fine young goalkeepers this morning and noticed it is Danny Ward's birthday today. Happy Birthday Danny! I then noticed that it is Loris Karius' birthday today also. Happy Birthday Loris! Were they really both born on the same day? That's just bonkers. I wonder which came out first and why that day was so good for producing future Liverpool goalies. Two fine young keepers exactly the same age, plus Migs. I really think we're looking very fine in that department. Grabara, Caoimhin Kelleher and Shamal George are all promising. I guess just Shay Given to replace Mannignger might make sense. Even though he wasn't born on June 22nd.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 22 Jun 2017 09:07:40
I know it's hard to believe but yes, some people are born on the same day.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 09:10:54
And its migs mums bday today aswel lol.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 09:15:45
Is that a sarcastic response RedMan? Sure some people are born on the same day around the world, but when do you ever meet them? Let alone play as a goalkeeper for the same professional football club.

{Ed001's Note - if you meet more than a couple of hundred people in your life, which most people do in the first couple of years of their life, let alone by the time they hit their 20s, then it is almost certain that at least some will share a birthday with you. If there are more than 365 people working at the same workplace as you, there is every chance of someone else sharing your bday.}

4.) 22 Jun 2017 09:48:53
It's my sons birthday! Is that an omen for the future? He has the goalkeeper kit for his birthday too! 😀.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 09:50:21
Not just the same birthday from any year in the last ninety, but the exact same day in 1993 when four big hands came into the world simultaneously and the world became a safer place. :)

6.) 22 Jun 2017 09:54:48
I share my birthday with Liverpool legend, Nigel Clough.

7.) 22 Jun 2017 10:00:12
There's some crazy stat which I can't get my head round, where if you are in a room with I think 23 people, the chances are over 50% that someone will share a birthday with someone else in the room!

8.) 22 Jun 2017 10:28:51
My parents share the same birthday and my Grandad shared it with them also. I was supposed to be born on that day as well but being the little bugger that I am was 2 weeks late!

9.) 22 Jun 2017 10:31:44
It was sarcasm Jurgen Meister, just banter though of course mate.

10.) 22 Jun 2017 10:47:34
I was born in one county and moved county when I was about 11. When I moved to my new school 2 other lads in my class were born on the same day as me with the same first name.

11.) 22 Jun 2017 10:52:12
100% correct fencey. If there are 22 other people in the same room as you, it is more than likely that one will have the same birthday as you. It is to do with reducing probability. A bit of a head mess, but is correct.

12.) 22 Jun 2017 11:03:02
I share my birthday with Bruce Grobbelaar. Hows THAT for a crazy coincidence. Just nuts.

13.) 22 Jun 2017 11:32:51
Nick, I don't think it's the same birthday as you, just same birthday as someone else!

14.) 22 Jun 2017 11:49:52
Too much time on your hands lads

I know its close season at the moment but birthdays. Really?

15.) 22 Jun 2017 11:53:34
I found out that I had the same birthday as my friend during a classroom exercise and we were both like woah, duuuuuude then we started jumping and everything.

{Ed025's Note - love it welsh..

16.) 22 Jun 2017 12:51:48
Haha, I make no apologies, I now love this thread.
But yeah, close season sucks, thank dog for the Confed Cup!
And I do have a friend who was born the day before me. But he hates me because I look ten years younger than him.

17.) 22 Jun 2017 16:53:12
Guys, I share my birthday with me mam. so what? You ask. Well, it's on April 1St. yep, 2 fools. Talking about fools. Has moreno gone yet?

18.) 22 Jun 2017 19:41:39
Again correct Fencey, my bad. Wasn't thinking when I wrote that.



06 Jun 2017 17:20:07
I apologize if this question seems to actually be about Southampton, but I see it as very relevant to the current VVD transfer and I am VERY curious if any Eds have an opinion or insight into this.
Anyway, season after season the Saints have to deal with players wanting to leave. Lovren, Fonte, Van Dijk and others. Surely that is just normal for a cub of their size and yet they keep getting the hump about it and complaining about other clbs dealings. I just read Fonte's intervie with Souness and it seems they didn't really do right by him and Lovren maintains his innocence and I know Alderweireld was only on loan there, but they had some issue with that as well. So Eds, have yous got any clue if it's sour grapes or just a tactic to get maximum value for them or if indeed Southampton are the injured party in some or all of these dealings? I would love to know what you think about this issue and transfer etiquette in general.
Thanks very much in advance.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - it is a mix of things, none of it is simple. Each case is a separate one in its own rights, with two different viewpoints, neither truly correct. Fonte was a bit of an arse, but they had promised he could leave for the right move, which he feels was offered. None of the dealings are really the same, though, in essence, the big clubs bully the smaller clubs and the smaller clubs then bully the even smaller clubs in turn, so it is difficult to have sympathy with anyone. They are all as bad as each other and a bit of integrity is very badly missed in football.}

1.) 06 Jun 2017 17:44:56
Spot on, Ed. The clubs just accuse others of doing the same things they would do if the roles were reversed, in essence so no one goes home like a saint in these cases.

2.) 06 Jun 2017 18:05:46
nice pun.

3.) 06 Jun 2017 18:33:20
Let's all remember this when Barcelona start messing with us about Coutinho.

4.) 06 Jun 2017 18:23:04
That's great Ed001. Thanks for taking the time to give a real response. It seems to me that with player-power these days stuff like this is becoming 'part' of football. I never like to see a player agitating for a move, but surely common sense would suggest that it's only natural since, like-it-or-not, a certain hierarchy does exist and they will always want to climb the ladder (while getting paid squillions of course) . So, a club like Southampton for example should expect and account for it. I must add that I really admire the way the Saints have managed to manage things since their return to the Prem by consistently making good money on sales and replacing them (usually) with successful players, not to mention their academy. Although, my advice would be to keep Claude Puel. Sacking him would be a mistake imo.
Thanks again Ed001, and I just hope this current 'saga' doesn't get ugly.

{Ed001's Note - they do account for it, but they just want to get what they consider fair value for their players.}

5.) 06 Jun 2017 19:35:20
Well that is fair enough. So the whole thing is just a bit of a song and dance really. I imagine there must be a whole load of unofficial stuff going on behind the scenes that we never hear about that. Oh to be a fly on the wall in a boardroom at times like these.



31 May 2017 08:49:05
Eds I used the search function and didn't see anywhere that you actually dismissed the Salah rumours as a 'red' herring. We're not really interested in him are we? Surely his poor work ethic would be be antithesis of what Klopp looks for?
Thanks v much.

How did the 'club' overrule Klopp? By issuing a statement saying Couts won't be sold? It was Couts who responded to that by immediately handing in a transfer request. And why do people keep coming out with this rubbish about FSG only being interested in profit? They are willing to turn down huge money for Couts AND spend big on the players Klopp wants. You talk nonsense, Kd.

Are Chelsea also after him? Is it us or them or just us?

All clubs have a prioritized list of players they like for various positions. It is no surprise that Mané is on their list for right-wingers, but it does not mean they will bid or we will sell or he will go anywhere or anything will happen really. He's probably on a lot of club's lists, but they can all dream on. Unless of course one of the few clubs even bigger than Liverpool decide to tap-up one of our top players and get them to agitate for a move. But I can't think of any club that would be so dastardly. Nope, no club springs to mind. Not one.
