Seen a lot of people saying we are going to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP, if this does happen would it influence any potential deal with Camacho, say a reduction in fees etc, because €40million is a lot for a player from the Portuguese league. A league that made Lazar Markovic look good.

Kieran

1.) 09 Jan 2019 18:54:53
Sign of the times mate. Today's €40m is the €2m of 15 years ago.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 19:14:07
Ederson cost about that much from Benfica and he's done okay, why does it matter what league he is coming from?


3.) 09 Jan 2019 19:49:57
Didn't Ronaldo come from the Portuguese league? He wasn't that bad.


4.) 09 Jan 2019 21:58:37
Lol mate, you can get a little gem from any league in the world, it does happen from time to time.


5.) 10 Jan 2019 08:54:19
In fairness, I think Markovic was an exceptional talent misused by the club and bought a few years before he was ready. For me it all went wrong after that red card in the champions league. Don’t think Rogers wanted to play him after that. Great haircut though.


6.) 10 Jan 2019 13:22:09
We don’t need box to box or holding players, we need creativity!


 

 

27 Jul 2018 23:13:52
Fair play to Michael Edwards for apparently convincing Crystal Palace to part ways with £25m for Danny Ings. That's some recoup of fees etc right there, and it'll go nicely towards the Fekir deal (I hope) . Add that to Mignolet off to Beskitas for £12m and potentially Origi and Ojo.

Kieran

1.) 28 Jul 2018 00:14:05
I think Ings will do well there if he stays fit, gutted it didn't work out for him at Liverpool, I had high hopes for him but the lad was just unlucky! always kept his head though and was professional throughout, he'll always have my respect. If the deal goes through good luck Ings!


2.) 28 jul 2018 01:51:11
well said salah, ings is a true professional and deserves things to go his way for a while.


3.) 28 Jul 2018 05:45:25
Unfortunately I can only give one thumbs up for that comment.
Honestly thought that Ings had klopp player written all over him. Hope he does well, wherever he goes. YNWA Danny.


4.) 28 Jul 2018 07:28:34
Absolutely gutted for Ings, really wanted him to come good for us but he's never going to get truly match fit unless he plays full games and Bobby F has that position nailed on at the minute - hope he does well for Palace if that's where he ends up and that's an eye watering sum of money (if true) considering the bad injuries and lack of playing time he's had!


5.) 28 Jul 2018 09:25:44
I'd echo the sentiments on Ings.

The situation does show the importance of a good rehab set-up too. It pays for itself and more, in the end.
The player gets 5% (I think) of the transfer fee and the club may get a decent price on the lad, especially considering his injury record.

It looks like a good outcome all round, really.


6.) 28 Jul 2018 09:50:32
From day one I thought he was an ideal Klopp player.
Decent finisher and closes down from the front relentlessly.
In all honesty I don't think he is up to the standard we now need, which is testament to how far Klopp has brought the team in just a couple of years.
Still think he would be ideal off the bench but can see him doing well and gettkng back in the England set up somewhere else.
Bobby has CF nailed for us, and I think Klopp would then go to Salah before Ings if Bobby was injured.
Decent money to recoup after some big signings.

On a slightly different note, how good is it that Klopp gets his business done early. No messing around towards the end of August like under Brodge.


7.) 28 Jul 2018 12:11:46
Andy, agree totally.

I would say though that Edwards and the team should take the majority of the credit in my view for the expediency of the business. They have been fantastic at bringing the preferred players in and moving on players no longer needed (for decent sums rather than pittance as before! )


8.) 28 Jul 2018 12:38:59
A good deal for both parties Ings needs to be playing regularly and that won’t happen at Liverpool but it’s a shame it never quite worked out for him. Has there been any confirmation on a bid at all.


9.) 28 Jul 2018 17:16:37
I agree with most LFC fans that Ings is a grafter and has had nothing but bad luck, however as a ST holder who goes home and away to every game, he and others like, Shei Ojo and Ben Woodburn just aren't regularly taking their chances in front of goal that will force their way into the first team. It does just go to prove how technically gifted our front three are in comparison. We are so lucky to have Bobby, Mo and Sadio.

Best of luck Danny. Hope you get a break elsewhere.


10.) 28 Jul 2018 18:19:26
What's having a season ticket got to do with it.


 

 

25 May 2016 17:33:19
What's the story with Lucas Alario? Apparently we'd sorted out a deal but then everything when quiet on him. Any updates or are we no longer interested?

Kieran

1.) 25 May 2016 18:03:47
Liverpool have walked away from a £9.5million deal to sign River Plate forward Lucas Alario
because of the third party ownership issue.


 

 

25 May 2015 00:12:51
Just want to say thank you to all the Eds for all the hard work throughout the season, and in Chris Pratt style I would like to apologise in advance for all the ridiculous rumours including buzzwords such as "Sources", "My mate", "Airport" , "Just seen" and the general, "why/are we interested in???" questions that arise during the silly season, thanks again, adore the site and the banter

Heard a couple of people on different forums/sites saying that we are interested in Sevilla's LB Alberto Moreno, he's on the verge of the Spanish national team squad so maybe an outsider for the WC he's young strong and athletic and is a million miles better than Cissohko, so he's good and we may have an interest. happy days

I just want to assess peoples feelings on potential comings and goings during the transfer window. Do we need anyone? Will new players disrupt the team dynamics? Who should / needs to leave?

We've had tentative links with Pulisic and Thorgan Hazard (unlikely to happen now, if at all, imho) whilst Moreno seems to be kicking up a fuss about wanting to play, being disrespected by Klopp, and wanting to return to Spain.

Thoughts?

Kieran

1.) 28 Dec 2018 14:46:13
Always buy when your at your strongest.

Proactive not reactive.


2.) 28 Dec 2018 14:48:22
Just sell a few that we don’t need get a few quid in and keep focus on winning. That’s it for me.


3.) 28 Dec 2018 14:59:56
Need the right player with the right attitude and personality who is joining a team know what ever position it is you don't walk into this team

And if klopp thinks you fit the bill let him work away.


4.) 28 Dec 2018 15:02:06
You need to replace what is sold.


5.) 28 Dec 2018 15:05:00
Kloppsboss am just interested in who you would buy in jan and why? 👍🏻.


6.) 28 Dec 2018 15:19:49
I think we need to look at our fullback situation and see what needs to be done there for the bench. I'm not too concerned about Moreno; there's always a fuss or noises made to the press when contracts are coming to an end. A replacement for Lallana if he is sold, unless Wilson is brought back from loan to slot into his place and and only if. And if Solanke or Origi are being moved on then a replacement for whoever is leaving. If Pulisic is bought then i really think it's an indication that the club expects one of Mane or Salah to move on in the summer.


7.) 28 Dec 2018 15:50:13
I think it’s time to rebuild.


8.) 28 Dec 2018 15:56:46
I had completely forgotten about the transfer window. We have such a good team, I don't see where we need to strengthen. A decent lcb to cover if, god forbid, vvd gets injured. Moreno maybe but then we would need a new back up lb. Sort that out in the summer. Moreno may be rash but he knows the system, knows the club and does have some attacking quality. If we go in for a fekir type player we will be hampering shaqiri and Keita. Not to mention the ox when he returns. Also Adam lallana has put in some decent performances recently, I don't see why we need a new acm.

That said, if a world class attacking player becomes available. Why not?


9.) 28 Dec 2018 16:07:16
I don't think we need anyone. Let's just keep the squad together as they've done alright up to now.


10.) 28 Dec 2018 16:44:48
Op we are not likely to buy anyone in January I’m afraid and nothing in here from any of the Ed’s has suggested otherwise.

{Ed0333's Note - I hope we sell Lalana thus promoting Curtis Jones. Also I hope we buy Fekir, yes I said it. I want Nabil Fekir playing for Liverpool in January. I know nothings broke so nothing needs fixing but I’m not quite sure how a player of that ilk can negatively affect the dynamic of the team.


11.) 28 Dec 2018 17:13:56
Love it Ed0333, and I would be made up if theat happened mate but realistically it ain’t happening is it.

{Ed0333's Note - of course it isn’t mate and even if there was such a thing as father Xmas it still ain’t happening lol.


12.) 28 Dec 2018 18:32:55
Ed0333 - Fekir / Agreed!
(Creative players of his quality rarely come around often! )

At the same time I'd be content if we kept our hands in our purses and kept faith with what we have.

I just think, if we're likely to sell a few midfielders in the summer (which we are) and if Fekir is available now (as it appears he is) then why not get the deal done now (even if he arrives in the summer? ) - while we're approaching the biggest second half to a season in years surely the Coutinho replacement Klopp wanted would (hopefully) gives us that final push?!
Obviously the worry is that any signing could be disruptive to the flow of the team but imagine how big a statement that'd be to our challengers.
Maybe Klopp isn't interested him anymore and maybe I'm wishful thinking!

As mentioned, I'd be more than happy with no signings but Fekir (and Pulisic) are available then they'd be the two that I'd go for IF they're available now.

{Ed0333's Note - Fekir’s contract is up in 2020 and I doubt he’ll sign another one at Lyon so I’m sure as you say hes available. I’m also pretty sure that the Fekir ship has sailed for us and as I mentioned a few days ago it wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up at Chelsea (it’s just a hunch I have no knowledge of where Fekir will be going). I really hope I’m wrong and Klopp unveils him leaning next Tuesday. I’m pretty certain Pulisic won’t come anywhere near us either while Salah plays for us and again I think that particular player will go elsewhere.


13.) 28 Dec 2018 19:00:18
I thimk another player to compete with the attackong 3 would be good. Assuming that origi goes of course.

And then don't really see the need to bring in anyone else in Jan unless we get multiple season ending injuries in the same position.


14.) 28 Dec 2018 21:15:44
Studge gives the front three some competition and has showed he has something to offer. Yeah I expect to see more outs if anything. That said, things are going so well I wouldn't want to change it.


 

 

09 Aug 2018 17:45:33
Other than Liverpool, I have to say Fulham, Everton and West Ham have conducted some absolutely brilliant transfers this window.

Kieran

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:59:54
Everton suprised me not going to lie. Good business these last couples of days.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 18:05:32
Everton? Bernard and Richarlison are no better than Walcott or Bolasie. Lot's of pace and no end product. More potential in Richarlison's case.

Mina and Digne got fobbed off by Barcelona because they couldn't defend in a top heavy league playing for the strongest team, and offered little on the ball either in a side which usually has 80% of the ball.

Have I missed anything else? Average business at best in my opinion. They'll finish anywhere in the 9th-14th mid table range.

Fulham and West Ham I agree with. Though I think both teams might have made too many changes in key areas. They'll take time to gel.

{Ed025's Note - and you call us bitter..


3.) 09 Aug 2018 18:37:17
I get that evertons signings aren't exactly a 70 mill transfer but some decent business especially the loan deals. If they get gomes and zuma too its a significant upgrade on last season. BTW im a liverpool fan but think the blues did good.


4.) 09 Aug 2018 18:55:19
Personally I aren't convinced by the WH signings, it's all good and well signing all of them players but will it strengthen them? I don't think it will, not much anyway. They finished 13th (I think? ) last season and have signed these players to move up that table of course but I don't see them getting anywhere above 10th. I mean Anderson we'll see how he gets on, he's the big signing for them but then your talking the likes of Wilshere lol that's not a good signing, don't worry Walter I know you disagree mate ;) . Who knows, they may shock me and do really well but I have my doubts personally.

Everton have gone for it, good luck to them I think the incoming players will help them in the longrun but in my opinion the fans really need to be patient with Silva, he needs a couple of seasons to make the team his. Should they stick by Silva I see them doing pretty well tbh.

Wolves and Fulham, well put it this way if either of them go back down I'll be very surprised, I'm impressed with how they've conducted business and I think both will stay up. Wolves for me though I think they'll really have an impressive season.

Liverpool have had the best window this time around, we've signed the players we needed and strengthened the positions needing to be strengthened. I know many people wanted a CB to come in, many of us wanted Fekir but it just wasn't meant to be. I feel if we brought in another CB it'd be basically saying to Gomez that he's done and I didn't want that, I really think the lad deserves his shot because I think there's more to him.

Overall I'm very impressed with Liverpool, the way we conducted business this time around was utterly fantastic, we got deals done early with no messing about.

I'm thankful it's all over now though and grateful the season is about to start, because I feel we're going to have a great season.

Massive shoutout to the Eds, especially Ed1, Ed2, Ed25, Ed333 and of course all of the other Eds. You fellas are the heart and soul of this website, I can't thank you all enough for providing such a great website.

Have a great evening to all!


5.) 09 Aug 2018 19:05:34
Everton seriously lacked pace last year with Rooney sigurdson tosic etc - Richarlison and Bernard help that and I actually think Richarlison will get better. You can argue Mina might be bad, but they’re back four were either kids or OAPs, its probably an improvement.
I don’t think you should judge until they play, we are saying Keita will one of the best in the league, but maybe he won’t adapt, and Bernard will. people said Salah wouldn’t cut it as Italy is slow. Personally think Everton have improved their squad.


6.) 09 Aug 2018 19:08:42
I said the same last season MK. They seem to be replacing players with players that are no better or in some cases even worse.
If they get the Silva of the start of last season though he might be able to get them playing. If they get the guy from the second part of the season they could be in the championship next year.
Big gambles taken from Everton this window it will be fun to see what happens.


7.) 09 Aug 2018 19:13:40
MK your post is laughable buddy, Everton have conducted some great transfer activity and have drastically improved their team/ squad and for anyone to say otherwise is just crazy, credit to them for spending as it shows clear ambition unlike Newcastle who imo will be bottom 5 majority of the season.


8.) 09 Aug 2018 19:22:42
Relax MK in think it was good business by them to be fair

Mina looks a good player perfect for the league I think they and west ham will battle it out for 7th this season still good but of the top 6 of course.


9.) 09 Aug 2018 19:40:04
I'm surprised to read that from you MK. Really. You're usually quite balanced in your views. Not to discuss finances, but you know well as much as anybody else that purchases are a function of financial ability and the situation the club is in. You've forgotten that only 3 seasons ago the best we could hope for was Clint Dempsey for an entire summer transfer window. Some can spend little and some can spend a lot. And some are more attractive to all players and some teams are not so attractive to join.

We're clearly on an upward slope. And I think much of it is due to Mr. Klopp. But I don't think it's so classy or elegant to be trampling on other teams on our way up there.


10.) 09 Aug 2018 19:21:54
To be fair ed25 if they’d signed for Liverpool they’d be world class. Great window for yourselves can’t wait to beat you!

{Ed025's Note - the club are trying pegleg and as supporters thats all we can ask for mate..


11.) 09 Aug 2018 19:25:05
Mate there talking good for them.

Obviously there not signing the calibre of player that could play in the top 6. The op is talking about good for them.

There shopping abit higher than aldi now, and good on them. Bout time we started showing some support to the less fortunate of this league, is it there fault there a disgrace to the footballing world. No. But they are there week in week out, and now they getting given something ok to actually watch. Bout time I say!

Ynwa blue men. Your always in our hearts!

Hahaha that absolutely tickled me, I just kept going.

{Ed025's Note - your smugness is very endearing KB, i think you have a very good side but the fact is you have won nothing yet mate, when you have you have license to trash talk...until then...


12.) 09 Aug 2018 19:54:12
Very bitter Liverpool fans, we don't need to be we had a great window so let the blues have their time to shine not that they will finish above us lol no offense ed025.

{Ed025's Note - i dont expect us to JF, if we do we will be winning the league mate..


13.) 09 Aug 2018 20:00:10
BigD, laughable? That's a bit strong. It was my honest opinion. Think about it player by player. Is Richarlison and upgrade on Walcott? Not in the short term. Is Bernard an upgrade on Mirallas or Bolasie? Not even close. Is Gomes and upgrade on Klassen, McCarthy or Davies? Not even close. Is Digne an upgrade on Baines? Not even close. Is Mina an upgrade on Jagielka? Not even in the same league. Is Zouma an upgrade on Holgate? No chance.

Spending money counts for nothing if you spend it an a load of run of the mill players. I didn't mean to sound bitter by the way, Ed025. To coin one of your own phrases, I say it as I see it. Silva will not last the season in my opinion but I'll gladly be proven wrong.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you know much about the everton team MK, your comparisons on players is way off the mark mate, to be honest i thought you knew more about football my friend..


14.) 09 Aug 2018 22:30:41
Mk, I don’t think baines is being replaced by Digne, but how much has he played over the last two years? He’s better than their sub left back.
Walcott is dreadful, Richarlison was a danger most of the season, just couldn’t finish his dinner - if he improves that, he will score goals.
Bernard has Brazil caps and gomes Portugal ones - maybe Mina and Gomes weren’t good enough for Barca, but that’s not always a shame.
I think we look at the likes of Gomez and think they can be class, yet Mina is still young, played in a World Cup and has plenty of time to learn too.


15.) 09 Aug 2018 22:36:57
Jokes aside ed. You have just below a top 6 side.

Still a few holes as your honest enough to agree and the players although good, don't have much prem experience, nor a pre season with you guys.

Bernard is fantastic and it is only his height that's put people off, at the same time kante is single handily winning world cups 🤣

If we had signed him everyone would be wetting themselves right about now.
Richy just needs to learn to finish and he could be very good indeed, problem he has now is even 10 and 10, he's a 50 million pound winger, so his stats might go great but his price tag will. always leave a few question marks. Unless he pulls a Salah and just goes off the friggin chain. No coincidence though his form dropped when Marco left.

Mina, I love him. Forget what he hasn't got and love what he has got.
Big fridgelike unit, immense heart, aerial domination, strong as a moths sucka. I really must remember the Colombia game badly, I was slightly drunk but I thought he was brilliant, aside from the goals. not only did he pocket king Kane, but when fresh legs vrady came on, he didn't give him a sniff even with a hamstring issue, in extra time aswel.

Gomes, was good enough for Valencia and Barcelona, nothing to be sniffed at.

Digne outted by alba so can't be great 😂 defensively superb just needs to offer more in the attacking game.

Use have done really well. Pickford, Coleman, Keane, mina and digne won't give up much. Tosun, richy, Walcott and Bernard could cause all kinds of problems and Gueye who made more tackles than kante last year a long with sig or Gomez. Tasty stuff.

Good luck for the year my friend.

I tell you what though, Silva and klopps styles could make the derby very very exciting.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think your a mile off with that assessment KB, too early to tell yet how things will pan out but the club are putting their money where there mouth,s are and trying to take the club forward, we are all happy with the outcome of this window and the nay-sayers who are comparing it to last season obviously dont know much about marcel brands mate...but we will see i suppose..


 

 

09 Aug 2018 11:52:00
Delighted the window is closing today, can't wait to see posts containing "smokescreen" "red alert" "done deal" "rumours" "mate in the know" and "just seen a player at the airport/ training ground/ stadium/ hospital/ hotel". Thanks to all the eds for putting up with all the nonsense of the silly season.

24 Jul 2018 12:26:32
Seeing a lot of reports on players Liverpool are looking to offload. Ojo, Chirivella, Ings, Origi, Markovic, Mignolet, maybe even Karius and Grujic may be sold. However, I can't imagine anyone wanting to pay the reported £27m for Origi or £14m for Markovic, money for transfers is now absolute pure madness.

Kieran

1.) 24 Jul 2018 13:32:40
Also once I had imagined no one would pay hefty sum that we payed for gaining Benteke's service, but we recouped major part of it, didn't we?


2.) 24 Jul 2018 13:23:21
Origi is still young. An international for a good team and he can score goals. 30million euros seems fair to me. I believe Liverpool would except anything over 25mil.

What he needs is to be at a club where he is highly valued. At Liverpool he is a back up player and it was the same thing in Germany.

I think Huddersfield would be a good fit. They need a goal scorer and Origi needs some inspiration. Put a relegation clause in his contract just in case and I can see Origi easily in double figures.


3.) 24 Jul 2018 15:17:37
Origi cost us £9m, has a year left on his current contract and the price we are quoting is £27m, that's ridiculous in my opinion. Origi has done nothing to warrant that kind of increase in value. Don't doubt I'd be the first to snap the hand off anyone willing to part with that kind of money for him, I just don't believe that anyone would offer that kind of money for him. He'd be in the £15m-£20m bracket if he is sold.


4.) 24 Jul 2018 16:34:25
Kieran, please don't forget the Neymar effect.

If we are being harsh, what has Ward done, at the highest level, to warrant £12.5m?

Neymar, with ridiculous TV money, has essentially doubled the market.

For £27m, read £13/ £14m.

Is Richarlison really worth £50m? Was Siggurdson worth £45m? (sorry, no anti-blue vendetta Ed025, but just the first ones that came to mind! )


5.) 24 Jul 2018 16:36:21
Jordan ibe left for 15 mil and only got 1 Premier league goal.

I think £25mil is fair. In today's climate. He's a youngster remember.


6.) 24 Jul 2018 17:22:00
I never thought we’d get £12.5m for Danny Ward!


7.) 24 Jul 2018 17:24:50
I take your points gents, even if I still can't wrap my head around the levels of inflation for average players.

Ultimately I believe that players are only worth what clubs are willing to pay for them, which is now sadly ridiculous.
As for Neymar and his cost. He generates enough income for PSG through his image and performance that he'll eventually make them a profit, just like Ronaldo did at Madrid.

Hypothetically imagine if Allison over time is worse than Karius, huge difference fees but still the same result, it'll be hard to justify the cost.
Sorry for the rant btw :)


 

 

12 Jul 2018 10:04:32
Hi eds, I've a question about the structure of the transfer window. It appears that the window shuts before the start of the new season, but is that just for domestic transfers within the league or does the window shut completely to all foreign clubs looking to do deals with us?

Kieran

{Ed002's Note - The transfer window relates to the registration of players and nothing else. So Premier League clubs will be able to buy and register players until August 9. The majority of countries keep the transfer window open until August 31 so they can continue to buy and register players, including from England, until then.}

If we're signing any defender this window (unlikely) it's Lloyd Kelly from Bristol city. Can play LB and CB. Joe Gomez 2.0 basically.

An Irish legend, time for everyone, always free to give some advice he's a gent. He's since gone on to coach the youth teams at Shamrock rovers back in Dublin, hauling the kids in at 6am for training before school (anyone who follows the LOI knows why this is necessary, skills gap etc etc) I think he's been recently offered a similar role at Celtic. Always would have wondered what would have happened if he'd signed for us and stayed injury free.

The problem with TAA is he had a lack of support from those infront of him. They weren't mobile enough to cover the distance, that's purely down to our style of play and levels of stamina and concentration. A new player now would be a poor move. Taking him out of the firing line and replacing him with the more experienced Clyne would be the more prudent move for now, letting him work on the faults. VVD, Gomez and Matip (when fit) offer good protection and a failsafe option from the CB position, so when they play TAA can get away with mistakes. It's all about working and communicating as a defensive unit, game intelligence about analysing the weaknesses and strengthening or compensating for them. In short; signing a new player won't fix it, better teamwork and training will.
