Ed, with the exception of Can, are there any first team players you feel may be likely to leave?

I personally think we could build a great squad if we keep our best players, but they must be in the sights of other clubs too.

A keeper, full back and a player to push for a place in attack (in case of injury) and we should have a solid season next year.

MikeyB

{Ed001's Note - Lallana.}


1.) 26 Apr 2018 22:17:46
Fair enough, I did hope he would come back strong. Not sure how much we could get for him at the . moment, or if he could get a good deal for himself until he proves fitness?


2.) 26 Apr 2018 23:05:36
I think Lallana both doesn’t want to retire at Liverpool and also isn’t good enough for our starting 11, for the sake of both sides I think he should get an opportunity elsewhere.


3.) 27 Apr 2018 00:32:10
Do you think its likely Ings will stay Ed? I hope he does, he's got a great attitude on the pitch and he's a decent player.

{Ed001's Note - it is up to him to decide what he does, so difficult to say.}


4.) 27 Apr 2018 08:59:45
I really hope ings stays before the injurys he was doing very well, I hope after a summers rest he will come back strong and get plenty of minutes.
I hope Llanna stays too last season he was really good, this seasons been a write off for the feller.


5.) 27 Apr 2018 15:07:32
Lallana was instrumental to us when Klopp arrived as he taught the team how to press and turnover the ball high up the field. He was like Firmino is to us now, in that he was the trigger and the high energy player that scared the life of out the opposition when they were in possession. Hats off to him for being a key figure in those early days and setting the tone.

As time has gone by though, and we’ve brought in players more suited to Klopp’s style of play (eg. Benteke and Sturridge out, Firmino, Salah and Mane in), Lallana has become less and less instrumental as the team itself has evolved, and every in the team now able to play that way.

While he’s still a great player, he’s not the catalyst he once was, and his one notable weakness (IMO his tendency to slow the game down when in possession) has meant others like Ox (brilliant at carrying the ball forward at pace) have probably overtaken him in the pecking order.

I’d happily have him in the side next year again as a backup to Ox, but if he leaves then fair play to him and wish him well. He’s been a great player for the club.


6.) 27 Apr 2018 15:15:11
Disagree with you on Lallana, Walter. He was good last year, undoubtedly, but we've changed the way we play since then. Our play is faster and quicker and far more direct. His constant dithering, turning pirouettes and doodling about with the ball would take us backwards. His major plus was the efficient pressing and regaining the football. We have others now who do it just as well.


7.) 27 Apr 2018 19:16:07
When did Lallana ever scare an opposition? I’m pretty sure the only person who is scared of Lallana is Michael Flatley.


 

 

15 Jan 2018 16:00:54
Hi Eds, I have tried the search function, but Can is such a common word, it is hard to pin down.

I was wondering if there was any update on his signing a new deal, or moving for another club?

I do not want to bash Hendo; but i am happier with Can in the team at the moment.

Is it correct that Can wishes some assurances in playing time, as he must be ahead of Hendo in the pecking order at the moment?

MikeyB

{Ed001's Note - no he knows Klopp does not really have him in his long term plans so is highly unlikely to stay.}


1.) 15 Jan 2018 16:55:39
Shame as when Can plays to his best he is a major asset and will be a loss to the squad.


2.) 15 Jan 2018 17:13:44
Same has been said about Coutinho JC23 but I read somewhere that we won more matches this season when Coutinho was not on the pitch fop us.


3.) 15 Jan 2018 17:37:09
We could afford the coutinho loss due to the volume of players we have to play the attacking roles in terms of central midfield we are lacking a bit.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 17:51:20
Same goes for City when They are pinned back like yesterday. Football is not a science.

Fernandinho and even De Bruyne looked lost at times.

The only reason why City have been so strong is because Pep has been all out attack from minute one. Their defensive was dreadful yesterday and other teams will now see that. City's defence is as weak as anything, just like ours. Pep knows that and is why he was hell bent on blowing records on attacking fullbacks who cannot defend and has CB's that are no better than ours.


5.) 15 Jan 2018 17:57:45
it looked to me that when Couts did not play, we were more direct in our play, something that I think works much better for us, a slower tempo held us back, now we can go for a quicker game .


6.) 15 Jan 2018 20:04:33
Hi ed01, I think a lot of the can questions about can are coming from a picture he sent out after the game with a few other players, a couple of other players including sturridge commented with money insinuations, like he'd just got some deal, is it possible he's agreed a pee contract probably with large signing on fee, or agreed a new deal,

{Ed001's Note - wasn't that a picture sent out by Lovren?}


7.) 15 Jan 2018 20:39:59
I'm not sure as I seen it used by some Liverpool pages to say can announced to the dressing room he'd agreed a deal, they're probably just guessing and badly at that,


8.) 15 Jan 2018 21:40:41
Pretty sure he didn’t actually state who the deal had been agreed with!


9.) 16 Jan 2018 13:22:50
I think the money emoji's were because you get fined for taking photos in the change room.


 

 

31 Dec 2017 12:25:39
I think pipco will go in summer. The only reason I say this is that I can not see why we would play him just before a transfer, if he is worth £125m you wrap him in cotton wool and put him on the bench.

MikeyB

{Ed002's Note - Or perhaps the transfer has already been agreed without the knowledge of Klopp or Edwards? Could that ever happen?}


1.) 31 Dec 2017 12:34:56
I think that's possible ed.


2.) 31 Dec 2017 12:44:33
I suppose ed.
But I hope klopp would be involved as he has to plan ahead.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp needs to plan ahead without Coutinho and has known that since pretty much when he arrived.}


3.) 31 Dec 2017 12:42:10
ooh ed you do like to stir it up a bit . love it.


4.) 31 Dec 2017 13:05:10
So if Edwards or Klopp haven't sold him who has? John Henry, Gordon?

{Ed002's Note - Of course. It was them who purchased VVD without negotiation without telling Edwards and Klopp.}


5.) 31 Dec 2017 13:21:56
Thanks for your reply Ed002 and please forgive my ignorance but that doesn't seem like the ideal situation that the owners are now buying and selling players when there are people at the club employed to do that.

{Ed002's Note - Well after the last 18 months where Liverpool has managed to get themselves two warning letters about illegal approaches, a complaint about illegal approaches left on file with the Premier League, an 18 month transfer ban and some very significant and embarrassing costs related to a 12 year old boy - then perhaps it is a good thing that the owners have stepped in.}


6.) 31 Dec 2017 13:37:16
Ed002 when you put it like that it makes perfect sense.


7.) 31 Dec 2017 14:02:30
I whole heartedly agree Ed! Glad Henry stepped in. Next move is to sort things out and get professional people in to conduct business accordingly, properly on their behalf.


8.) 31 Dec 2017 14:18:38
Thanks again Ed it does seem to be one mess after another at the club. Hopefully the club can start being more professional going forward but I think I have said that before so I won't hold my breath.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t think there is any mess at this time}


9.) 31 Dec 2017 14:20:59
Campbell you do realise Klopp wanted VVD tho of course he would of known something was going on but probably told to keep his nose out after he fooked it up last time.


10.) 31 Dec 2017 14:38:23
What ED2 has said about the van Dijk transfer had been written about in the Telegraph. No negotiations, just a price given directly to FSG's Henry and Gordon by Les Reed of Southampton on 21 December. Liverpool paid it to get the player and then informed Klopp and Edwards a few days later.


11.) 31 Dec 2017 15:15:13
Who cares how it happened, i couldn't care less if milner signed vvd. nothing came out my pocket that's all i care about.

Eds do you have any knowledge of whether Mane and Salah will be able to eat and drink when the final is on, as they will be observing Ramadan. Is there any president for top athletes.

MikeyB

{Ed001's Note - yes they will.}


1.) 06 May 2018 23:02:20
Yes, as they will be travelling, they do not have to fast. They will have to make up that fast at another time. Hope that helps 😊.


 

 

22 Jan 2018 14:53:02
Sturridge is not injured, but not in the match day squad. Apparently he wants to go to Seville, hence not being in contention for tonight.

I hope he gets to move, ideally to a less physical and warmer climate, it may suit him.

Good luck to the lad.

MikeyB

1.) 22 Jan 2018 14:56:13
I hate physical climates 😉

I agree though mate. It'll do him good.


2.) 22 Jan 2018 15:09:15
I'm pretty sure he speaks Spanish. Probably why he wants to go to Sevilla over Inter!


3.) 22 Jan 2018 15:30:16
Personally I think releasing Sturridge for a loan leaves us short up front in back up to RF.

I know he wants to find a WC place and get regular game time and my view may seem selfish but the club should come first and we’ve been paying him a good wage for a number of years, he has a contract and should play his role in our season left to play with a reassessment in the summer.

In the summer I would grant him the move if he wants it.

{Ed001's Note - whereas I think we would be better off using a kid than him unless he is going to play regularly, as he will never be useful as a bit part. Let the lad go.}


4.) 22 Jan 2018 15:34:35
If he does go, hope it works out for him. Always felt bad really as he seems to be made of glass :C and doesn't look to be in jurgen's plans. Hope he rips it up in Espana!


5.) 22 Jan 2018 15:39:54
Sevilla are not interested in him according to Balague.


6.) 22 Jan 2018 15:58:21
Question is can solanke and ings step up if sturridge leaves? No way can firmino play every game for the rest of the season, the way he plays. Solanke badly needs a goal, I think we'll see a different player when he finally gets it.


7.) 22 Jan 2018 16:12:30
Ed we won't sell both Studge and Ings in January though will we?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it.}


8.) 22 Jan 2018 16:48:36
The only thing I feel bad about is he left without a medal but that's everyone's fault.


9.) 22 Jan 2018 16:54:55
I'd be gutted to see him go, just going on the past though unfortunately. I know it's the best thing for himself and for the club. I'm sure he'd do well over at Sevilla.


10.) 22 Jan 2018 17:38:17
Too lazy not willing to change his game style let him go.


11.) 22 Jan 2018 17:38:32
Best of both worlds. Shame to see it happen but it's been kinda overdue. I agree that solanke needs a goal and once that happens I won't be worried about our lack of striking depth.


 

 

27 Dec 2017 18:41:06
I love football, at 39 I still play every week. Love liverpool and hate that I can not stop watching England. But the money is getting to my nerves. £75m for a decent defender is too much. And this is the tip of the iceberg.

I am going to take my son to watch semi pro football and hope he just loves playing as much as me.

I feel totally disconnected.

MikeyB

1.) 27 Dec 2017 19:04:44
Its the way of the football world Mikey. Hard to stomach, i agree but what can you do? I can't stop supporting Liverpool or following football in general. So i guess i just suck it up!


2.) 27 Dec 2017 19:09:46
It is what it is fella, we all have to move on a realise the money that is being produced in modern day football.


3.) 27 Dec 2017 19:22:57
True, and for the record it is not VVD'S fault he plays the game at a time of silly money. I love the game and the tribal banter. The hope and fear but not the largesse.


 

 

04 Sep 2017 20:14:58
The Ox has been so poor for England in these games. His confidence looks shot.

I hope Klopp can rebuild him. Wenger has really let a crop of talented young players rot.

MikeyB

{Ed025's Note - he makes worse decisions than kim jong un..


1.) 04 Sep 2017 20:58:19
Trust me, he's avarage at best.
Can't believe we got £35m for him.


2.) 04 Sep 2017 21:13:39
Potentially £40m I think Dags. Daylight robbery that mate.


3.) 04 Sep 2017 21:29:43
if he gets the winner against city saturday we'll all be saying worth every penny 😊.


4.) 04 Sep 2017 21:35:06
Any truth that Kim Jong is koemans adviser ed25.


5.) 04 Sep 2017 21:37:08
If he gets games against the big teams I would be very surprised.


6.) 04 Sep 2017 21:37:39
I hope Klopp rebuilds Lazar Markovic ( genuine pace and decent skill ) once Europe's best young player! Chamberlin is below Markovic in the pecking order for me! I can understand why club wanted £16 mill for Markovic!


7.) 04 Sep 2017 21:47:59
For god's sake he hasn't kicked a ball for us yet and already you lot are whining about him call yourself supporters.


8.) 04 Sep 2017 22:06:18
I thought he did ok tonight. He showed power, pace, direct running. The problem for all England players was a lack of options in advanced areas so they ended up trying to shoot. Looking at Ox tonight he'll fit well in our system and I for one am happy to have him at the club.

{Ed025's Note - take off them red specs ings he was bloody awful, not much around him though but lets not tell lies mate..


9.) 04 Sep 2017 22:10:37
Hard to judge in an England system so dull and contrasting to ours. Saying that, he was very wasteful.

{Ed025's Note - he has speed and strength a plenty rbbb, its a pity hes got the brains of a rocking horse really mate..


10.) 05 Sep 2017 05:29:40
Ed025 - Sounds like he would be an upgrade on Rooney then. Maybe you blues should try for him next transfer period?

{Ed025's Note - im not exactly waynes best mate phil but i think his trophy haul and records speak for themselves mate..


 

 

04 Aug 2017 20:04:02
Hi Eds, any news on Stydge's injury? Will he likely be fit to start the season? I would love to have him fit this season.

MikeyB

{Ed001's Note - he should be fit.}


1.) 04 Aug 2017 20:09:06
Great thanks for the update. Keeping him fit is a challenge but if we can get 30 games out of him it would be like having a top new signing.


2.) 04 Aug 2017 21:21:12
He is having a scan/ check-up next week and should be in the match day squad on the 12th.


3.) 04 Aug 2017 21:26:46
I don't think it's so much about the games Mikey, he made 20 premier league appearances last year, it's getting him ready to start games and keeping it that way.

I really hope we can get a full season out of him this year, as you're absolutely right in the fact it would be like a new signing.


4.) 04 Aug 2017 22:15:57
Having him fit would really take the heat off the Lallana injury, drop Firmino in and play Studge up top.


5.) 05 Aug 2017 03:16:51
I am not sure that Lallana starts anyway, if Couts stays.

I remember a young Steven Gerrard played a few positions in his youth, including full back. Not going to compare the two players; just noting that it did Stevie no harm.

On that point; do they pay tax like a paye employee or do they have their own international companies who get the cash and help minimise tax?

MikeyB

{Ed002's Note - After “expenses” they pay tax. Remind me in a day or two about some of the approaches taken in the past, and I will tell (nearly) all.}
