Hi eds
I know we signed matip on a free way before the transfer window opened. Is there anyone We could sign in the coming weeks leading up to Jan that would help our defence in anyway. It would be nice to know that we had someone lined up ready.
As always thanks.

Longthing76

{Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}


1.) 21 Sep 2017 02:51:23
We signed Matip early because his contract was expiring, not many players contracts expire in January.


2.) 21 Sep 2017 03:42:34
I did a search and Joe lescott is available ;)
Two interesting players in Jan Kirchoff and flamini are available too.


3.) 21 Sep 2017 08:11:40
Jan Kirchoff? The massive German who kept Sunderland up single handedly 2 years ago?

That can't be right. If it is he must be injured. He is a decent centre back/ holding midfielder from what I've seen. Sunderland were soft, lacked leadership, lacking in steel and fight etc and he went in there and was a massive part of their turn around.

I didn't see enough of him to know if he is good enough for Liverpool, but he is a better defender than Lovren and Klavan that is for sure!

{Ed001's Note - he is awful MKS, he is slow, cumbersome and got the credit for no reason I could see. He was always about 6 yards behind the play, but he put in a couple of good passes and suddenly he was the reincarnation of Beckenbauer in the media. One man kept Sunderland up that season and it was not Kirchhoff, it was Allardyce. Kirchhoff is injured, he did his cruciate, but he is simply not as good as people believe. He makes Matip look lively when chasing back.}


4.) 21 Sep 2017 11:50:56
How can you claim he kept them up single handedly then further state you didn't see enough to see how good he actually was?

I like your efforts MK, I just don't think the knowledge is there.


5.) 21 Sep 2017 11:52:13
I'm not saying he'd suit us Ed. Every game i saw him in though he was arguably man of the match so that's all i can go off of. I agree he looks too slow for us and i only saw him 2 or 3 times so I'm certainly not going to suggest we sign him. He was a monster at set pieces though and seemed to get the best out of the useless players he had around him. As a pure defender though he looked decent. Nothing special, just decent. If he signed for us he'd just be another stop gap so I'd rather we wait anyway.

I was just surprised he didn't have a club. He'd suit a team like West Brom, Palace, Huddersfield etc. If he has a cruciate injury though, that explains it.


6.) 21 Sep 2017 13:58:33
So the day we feared has come injuries too centre backs an they were already rubbish, now we have no cover total crime too neglect the transfer window for defensive cover.


7.) 21 Sep 2017 15:23:13
Lol ed (โ‰งโ–ฝโ‰ฆ)


8.) 21 Sep 2017 16:47:03
Smplfc, i can only judge what i saw. I watched Sunderland with and without him that season and they were a completely different side. Maybe I've confused the impact of Kirchoff, with the impact of Allardyce. But those two coming in definitely coincided with Sunderland becoming much harder to beat and a much more solid looking unit. Then when they didn't have him last season they were back to being an flaccid bunch of strangers. Again, could've been Allardyce being gone too though.

Unfair to suggest I've not got any knowledge though when all I've done is call a player I've watched a few times decent. Hardly gone over board with the praise have i ๐Ÿ˜‚ although i have since noticed i missed an almost out of my original post. It should've read "almost single handedly" so perhaps that is why people are jumping down my throat for daring to suggest Kirchoff is a mid table Premier League player ๐Ÿ™„ Khazri, Kirchoff and Kone changed their season i thought. I mean you can disagree but when they signed Sunderland looked doomed to go down, but their fortunes were completely changed. You are all so quick to claim that you can't make a silk purse from a sows ear when i defend our players, so you can't then in the same breath say that Sunderland staying up was 100% down to Allardyce. He clearly added players who could make the difference, but that is my point. Kirchoff was part of the change that made that difference.

Anyway, feel like we're splittng hairs over terminology, my choice of clichรฉ phrase (which has seemingly been taken way too literally), and people are perhaps jumping to the conclusion that i think he'd be a good signing for us. I'd still be surprised if Kirchoff struggles to find a mid table top flight club once he's fit. Be that in England or back in Germany the bloke is clearly a decent player. From a Liverpool perspective i appreciate he's not good enough, but for a team dwelling at the bottom struggling to keep out goals he would be seen as a big step up in defensive quality. Horses for courses mate, you can't view everything from Liverpool's world or else we are saying that a good 95% of pro footballers are terrible! It's all relative ๐Ÿ˜‰.


9.) 21 Sep 2017 17:58:03
You have also taken my point out of context mate.

My point isn't your end assessment on the player, it's the fact that you made the asssessment and then when Ed disagreed you stated that you had only actually watched him "2 or 3 times". Not once did I say I don't rate the player or it was all down to big Sam, nor am I pushing something down your throats for having an opinion.

I actually agree with your initial statement. I disagree with eds views and although Sam definitely signed players to pay to his strength, he was one that looked like he had a bit of class about him.

My point is and that's all it is in my opinion, lack of experience leads you to make large opinions without backing them up properly or forming them to either agree with Ed or to disagree with the majority.

Like I said mate it wasn't a dig, all a bit of light hearted banter, but I actually rate Kirchoff!


10.) 21 Sep 2017 20:44:27
We started to go downhill when Djimi Traore and Kewell left.


11.) 22 Sep 2017 00:28:14
omalley is correct, everything is clear for me now.


12.) 22 Sep 2017 10:30:21
Actually that Hoffenheim CB is pretty fast, he caught up with Mane when matip started 1st.


13.) 22 Sep 2017 12:56:48
Relaxlabrudder,
Are you referring to their captain who needlessly gave the ball to Salah near the half way line and almost gave us a throw away goal?
I can appreciate anyone making a mistake but a glaring one like that is not really needed in a defence like ours at the moment thanks lol!


14.) 22 Sep 2017 21:30:00
Klopp must have forseen the scenario loosing Matip/ Lovren. I would guess he just have a lot of FAITH in Gomez. Maybe WE should support this?
I really really like Gomez. He's got pace, he's calm, he has ability on the ball. He may lack a bit of rutine, and some belief in himself. Maybe both Klopp and me would have chosen to ease the "kid" in over the season, but HEY, he might grab the PL by the balls, in september!

Hi eds1
With only a few days to go in the transfer window. Is there any new bits of info regarding players in or out that mite of interest to us Liverpool fans. Yo must have some nice little gems that you've kept to your self. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
As all ways thanks eds. not long now till the craziness is over ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

Longthing76

{Ed001's Note - nothing new mate, I still expect 2 or 3 signings before the window is shut. Centre back, Ox and another midfielder is the plan. Other than that, the only things I keep back is the personal stuff or stuff I am asked not to talk about.}


1.) 26 Aug 2017 11:41:41
Great update ed. That will do for me mate. Im one who sometimes asks to many questions but your info is appreciated. Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - cheers, sorry it is not much, I have been so busy trying to find out stuff for so many sites, I have been not getting much for any. It was a mistake trying to do too much and a lesson has been learnt, I used to get far more on other teams as an aside when chasing up Liverpool info only that I have done by chasing up stuff on lots of teams!}


2.) 26 Aug 2017 11:42:41
I would be very happy with that its wat we need.


3.) 26 Aug 2017 11:44:34
Ed001 appreciate your opinion. Can I have your insight rather than your personal opinion (I remember you saying your opinion was he leaves)
Has the club accepted coutinho is leaving this window? I apologise in advance if you've done this to death, but everyone on here is taking like he's already left, and the outside world is talking like he's not leaving. I'm trying to form an educated opinion but it's hard!

{Ed001's Note - there is no intention to sell by the club. The club have dug its heels in and the decision is that nothing short of a world record fee would buy him this summer. That is what they are saying anyway, but they have also been saying he was injured and ill, so who knows, you can no longer trust their word sadly.}


4.) 26 Aug 2017 11:58:57
Ed 01 cheers as always for the update.


5.) 26 Aug 2017 12:12:46
Nice one ed. Enjoy ya weekend mate.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, I will if we win!}


6.) 26 Aug 2017 12:28:50
I'm guessing we'll hold onto him unless a few of our targets come off which frankly is sensible business.


7.) 26 Aug 2017 12:48:01
Thank you so much Ed001. We can only imagine it must be a stressfull time for you guys!

Can I ask for your personal opinion. Who do you belive would be the idial fit for the CM and the CB spot of those who are available?

Cheers and thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - available is impossible to answer. I would say though Koulibaly suits defensively, while he is not perfect he is strong in the air, quick and used to a high line and pressing system. I have to be honest I have not seen anyone truly suited in the midfield, though I would take Obiang from West Ham.}


8.) 26 Aug 2017 13:26:17
I love you Ed01! You are the best!

{Ed001's Note - was that a typo? 1 and 2 are very close together and it is an easy mistake to make....}


9.) 26 Aug 2017 14:33:30
Obiang ๐Ÿ˜‚.


10.) 26 Aug 2017 15:02:01
What about n'didi or doucoure?


11.) 26 Aug 2017 15:42:30
I concur Ed001 thank's a million for all your help mate.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.

Ndidi is not available right now or I would defo like us to sign him.}


12.) 26 Aug 2017 15:59:47
Obiang is a decent option. Puts himself about, can tackle and pass and knows his position.

{Ed002's Note - Option?}

Hi all
I didn't want to say yesterday but I have a friend who works for the company who finds houses for Liverpool and Everton players.
I text them to ask about keita.
And YES they are looking at houses today.
That's all I've got ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

1.) 10 Aug 2017 08:46:07
I didn't want to say till I had text the person. No point me say and then having no info. And I only text them after macca had said first so it wouldn't be an exclusive. It was just to confirm that YES they are house hunting today.
am not bothered about being first to say something just thought the eds and fans would like confirmation about this.


2.) 10 Aug 2017 08:29:25
Was wonder dog happy to hear this eds๐Ÿค”.

{Ed002's Note - I will call him later and ask.}

7.) 10 Aug 2017 09:36:02
Ed002 - I would have thought that Sparky would be delighted. He can put the For Rent sign back in the basement. Pls pass on thanks to WDS.

{Ed002's Note - You can do that yourself on Twitter I undertsand.}


8.) 10 Aug 2017 09:58:41
There doesnโ€™t seem to be any annoyed replies? Moaning for the sake of moaning.

Stop moaning about people moaning about people moaning for gods sake :-)

House hunting rumours are so 2009. I love it.


12.) 10 Aug 2017 11:26:48
Really hope this is true, but just can't see RBL selling this summer. Why would they change their minds?


13.) 10 Aug 2017 11:46:58
just a thought. with the rbl director confirming he will probably be leaving next summer, perhaps he is just looking for houses in preparation for next year, knowing that he will come to us?


14.) 10 Aug 2017 12:00:44
Living on Merseyside will make it an unnecessarily long daily commute to Leipzig for him. :-P.


15.) 10 Aug 2017 12:02:23
I think he's just browsing for a nice vacation house, because of the lovly english sommer weather.


16.) 10 Aug 2017 12:54:08
By the way, I just saw the main man posting a picture on Facey. Him wearing a big happy grin and a knitted red bull hat on his noodle, looking like a chap that just bought a fancy house in england. Live from Berlin.


17.) 10 Aug 2017 13:21:36
First time poster, long time reader.

Eds, with both Macca and other posters confirming Keita (his reps) is house hunting in Liverpool, would this be for a move this year or anticipation of next?

I'd assume some type of contract is already in place for him to be house hunting already? There were rumors that RB accepted an offer and is just saving face now (hard to believe) but can see Keita agreeing a pre contract bringing him in next July.

Thanks for the site and any direction!

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool has agreed a "pre-contract" with the player of any type they will without doubt be charged by FIFA.}


18.) 10 Aug 2017 13:36:23
Ed002 - Touce'

So I'm guessing this would just be in anticipation of a possible move next year. Seems weird though, with so much that could happen between now and then - hense why I assumed the pre contract.

Thanks,

{Ed002's Note - I can't answer anything about folks looking at houses in Liverpool I am afraid.}


19.) 10 Aug 2017 15:04:27
Rbl stringing out deAl for free publicity. It makes sense they are a commercial brand. Think deal was always going to happen they told us to up our second offer to 66 and he's ours. They knocked us back and klopp laughed. The eds have played it brilliantly, playing their own part in this transfer by not allowing us to yap on about kieta on here for weeks. Actively deleting the word "kieta" and since then the papers lost interest and rbl were no longer getting any publicity for free. Now with few weeks left, and rumours of gomez, lanzini could've worried rbl who may have lost their man for 48 mil if not for liverpool sale this summer. They have re ignited saga by admitting the clause exists. Well played eds!


20.) 10 Aug 2017 15:47:33
Well said Superred spot on, exactly what I thought.
The eds do a lot more than just find out info and keep this site running and people donโ€™t understand everything they actually do.

Blocking Keita posts seemed to have been a very clever thing to shut the papers up and dim RB's spotlight moment. No more milking for publicity.
And either sell for 66mil now or 50?mil next summer. Any business would take the extra 16+ mil any day no matter how rich they are.


21.) 10 Aug 2017 16:37:14
Red Phil I think the vast majority of people would agree that if we were to get top dollar for couts now or sell him next year for a little less we would want to keep keep him. So why wouldn't rbl feel the same about Keita?


22.) 10 Aug 2017 18:56:16
I would imagine because Coutinho would increase our revenue due to a higher league finish and better CL performance. Additionally the extra year training with Woodburn et al would increase their abilities and, perhaps, negate the need for an expensive replacement.
I doubt RBL would have as much to gain from holding on 1 more year.
Do people actually believe he would be worth less next season?


23.) 10 Aug 2017 20:46:37
Killingholme

Its a long commute but Red Bull does gives you wings.

YNWA.

{Ed025's Note - nice one der..


24.) 10 Aug 2017 20:48:29
And you don't think RBL would want to hang on to Keita to try ensure they qualify for the CL again next year? Or maybe hope to even beat Bayern to the title or do a sort of Leicester and win the CL. They'd have a much better chance at all of those things if they keep Keita and they'd be a much more attractive prospect to new players under any of those circumstances.
Even the maths works out. ยฃ40m for CL qualification they'd lose if Keita left. Or lose out on ยฃ10m if he stays for an extra year and goes for his buyout clause.


25.) 10 Aug 2017 21:11:47
CL Qualification is worth less for German clubs than English clubs. Their gain would be closer to 20m.
They should finish top 4 anyway and have a far greater chance of buying a replacement than Liverpool do.


26.) 10 Aug 2017 22:09:58
Swishcleaner - Coutinho isnโ€™t even in his prime yet, his Value will only increase so your question is void ๐Ÿ˜œ

And RBL will still finish top 4 like christos said. Losing Keita isnโ€™t going to change that. If they lost Keita and Timo they would probably still finish top 4.


27.) 10 Aug 2017 22:09:58

Well Ed1 seems to think Hendo will be gone at the end of the season I for one won't be bothered as long as a better replacement is found or maybe already has been . Emre can't will be gone it appears as long as he's suitably replaced not bothered. Couts will go I would of got lemar when we had the chance and settled him in. It's the defence and keeper what desperately needed addressing and still does.


10.) 17 Oct 2017 21:33:29
You left out Karius, absolutely brilliant tonight!

{Ed001's Note - I haven't done anything like that at all. I will try and get the time to do a review of how we are getting on, but we might be a few more than 13 into the season!}


1.) 16 Oct 2017 18:46:33
I will do a quick review for you. 4/ 10 overall poor.

Defence that can't defend 3/ 10, although Moreno gets a 6/ 10.

Midfield 5/ 10 very limited and Gini has been shocking overall. He shouldn't get in the squad for away games.

Attack 4/ 10, Salah not bad 7/ 10 but needs far too many chances, Sturridge is done 1/ 10 and Firminho doesn't score enough, doesn't assist enough and he can't hold the ball up.

A change in formation is urgently needed, Mane when fit has to be centre forward.


2.) 16 Oct 2017 21:15:26
4/ 10 yet we're 2 points off 4th, come off it, your speaking rubbish mate.


3.) 16 Oct 2017 21:34:25
Why are we chasing 4th? We finished 4th last season and progress is to climb the ladder! We are sitting on 8th. Arenโ€™t we? In fact we moved form 7th to 8th after outplaying UTD. We are not Arsenal!


4.) 16 Oct 2017 21:34:49
We are supposed to be trying to win the league not being happy to finsh 4th.

If we continue playing at the level we are now we will finish around 6th. I would say that's 4/ 10 or lower. You should set your sights a lot higher.

Who is the team deserves more than a 6/ 10? one or two maximum

5/ 10 or worse
Matip
Lovren
Karius
Klavan
Gini
Henderson
Sturridge
Ox.


5.) 16 Oct 2017 22:07:45
Harry I didn't say we are chasing 4th, of course we want to be higher, but in reality we won't be, not in my opinion. With this league it's a lot harder to do, you don;t seem to understand it mate do you.

We're 8 games in, we have 30 left a lot can change in that time, yet your already writing us off. All I see from you is posts slamming us down when we Haven't even done that bad, take Watford and Burnley out the mix, they won't be up there for long. Other 'top' teams will have bad periods and I fully believe we will have our good period, it happens every year to most teams, you can't be fantastic all season long, if you are then kudos but it's rare. Unless your in La Liga or Bundesliga, we're in the premier league, the most difficult league in the world.

Yes we are 8th, but I say it again, we're not far off top 4, top 4 will do me another season (and most people), what do you expect after such a transfer window? seriously? - I want improvements but that transfer window was a fail, we needed more, we didn't get it, it is what it is and we need to get on with it and support the team instead of slamming them constantly.


6.) 16 Oct 2017 22:41:38
I'm a critic but,
Henderson still strikes me as not 100% but if that's true fair play he's soldiering on
Gini hasn't been THAT bad, his work goes unappreciated,
Can has been excellent at times and awful at others I think he's trying that much to impress he slips up from time to time but he's trying.
Salah isn't a goal scorer, he's not a striker so why complain? Mignolet doesn't score enough! But JOKES aside salah has been excellent.
The key issues have been the goal keeper and then the silly defensive errors but in reality, we've missed mane and Coutinho for most of the season, clyne and lallana we've not always been great but we've done okay considering the circumstances.


7.) 16 Oct 2017 22:29:57
I'm sorry but I agree, we have won 3 out of 8 league games so far. Yes there is a long way to go and things could improve. But things could also stay the same or get worse. We can only judge on what we have seen so far and it's not been good enough.


8.) 17 Oct 2017 04:49:11
With the squad we have, 4th is the highest we could ask for. It was obvious when the transfer window shut, and its obvious now.


9.) 17 Oct 2017 06:14:21
โ€œ. With this league it's a lot harder to do, you don;t seem to understand it mate do you. โ€

Do you think this will change next year? The reason we are in the trouble is due poor transfer window again you were fast to criticize posters who pointed out during the window!
You still clean we had an excellent window while you also claim 4th is the best we could look for this season!

On another note, What is Wijnaldumโ€™s work that goes unnoticed? I would love to hear from anyone! Donโ€™t say he is here to break the oppositions play! Thatโ€™s utter crap then! When you play with 3 CMโ€™s and you being the attacking one, what exactly is his role other than creating assists / goals / chances! He is a ghost who goes missing for a minimum 19 away games!

He is replaced by Kieta next summer already! If that doesnโ€™t say anything then nothing will!


10.) 17 Oct 2017 06:17:34
With this league it's a lot harder to do, you don;t seem to understand it mate do you.

When you know this league is hard you shouldnโ€™t drop points against teams who are inferior to you!


11.) 17 Oct 2017 07:31:21
Got to agree, the teams that succeed in this league understand you have to nail the weak teams and that every point really matters, it isn't Spain where you can pretty much predict the top 3 every season, any of 6 clubs could be in the top 3. So not turning up against the lower teams isn't good enough to be a consistent ECL team. People keep banging on about we beat Arsenal or Chelsea or the other big teams. Yes but we then go and lose/ draw the next half dozen against the weaker sides, while the team we beat will pick up 15-18 points against those sides. That is why we struggle for EPL. Personally I'd give up those big wins for consistent wins against the other teams, even just lots of 1-0s.

I posted the other day about DS needing to be moved on. And yesterday just confirmed it for me. We are playing Man U if there's one game you want the players to put some effort and fight in it's that game.
People say he needs games. But not for me. He's not going to get games if he doesn't want to run and close down from the front. Put in the hard work and you will get games. Jogging though the last 15-20 mins for me is not acceptable.
It happens to all players at some point legs have gone weather it's though injuries or age time to move on and find a striker that can score and run for the team.

1.) 15 Oct 2017 12:02:21
Same here, show us you want to try and maybe he'd get more game time, yesterday he did nothing therefore how the hell can he be played more, you'd of thought given you've only got 15 or so mins to play you'd want to impress, but nothing was there from him. I'm not saying he should've scored, but he could've done a lot more then he did.

I'm a bit gutted to be honest regarding DS because I do think his time is up at the club which is a real shame.

Solanke ahead of him now for me.


2.) 15 Oct 2017 14:10:01
A think it time sturridge was moved on for all involved, he needs something different. Its plain to see that that the might reds and sturridge are no longer good for each other.


3.) 15 Oct 2017 14:26:23
I agree with all the comments above about sturridge he's scared to break into a sprint in case he gets injured again. for me while mane is out i would play solanke up top and drop courtinho back leave hendo or wijnaldum out the 3 CM ain't working if you watched coutinho yesterday he kept dropping back into CM to get the ball in my opinion his best position i would alo give WARD a run out.


4.) 15 Oct 2017 20:46:36
With all of you here. Studge simply no longer has it and the worst thing for me was that Origi had to leave on loan cos Studge could not be moved (per Ed01). Origi may not be the finished article yet BUT he is determined, motivated and eager to do well and shows effort every time he plays. He has scored 22 goals in 2 seasons as a 3rd choice striker. There is NO team in the PL whose 3rd choice striker can boast about those numbers. NONE whatsoever. We could have used him now cos at least he would show effort, has pace and power to burn and is a good lad.


5.) 16 Oct 2017 02:37:39
He'd be Perfect for Celtic,
The manager knows and rates him

He'd get to play in the Champs league to put himself in the big shop window,

Over the past few games we have created lots and lots of chances and I get the feeling that someone is going to get a right battering. Now am praying that's we have saved it up for today.
A win today would fill our team with the confidence needed to push on for the season especially as we will be without mane for 6 weeks.
With a champions league game mid week and TH next week A WIN is a must.
I would love to go to work on Monday with a big smile on my face ready for all the manc's
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผcome on you red men please make it happen YNWA.

I didn't want to say till I had text the person. No point me say and then having no info. And I only text them after macca had said first so it wouldn't be an exclusive. It was just to confirm that YES they are house hunting today.
am not bothered about being first to say something just thought the eds and fans would like confirmation about this.
