Coutinho would prefer to stay. He's always been a very genuine guy since his days at inter. He recently said to a friend of mine that champs league is not a requirement for him staying and while Barcelona interest is flattering he's happy where he is for now.

I can't see him leaving unless Barcelona stump up the ridiculous asking price and the club decide to sell.

Also in other news I wouldn't count on James going to United as he has stated he does not think their style of football will suit him at all and is not keen on being rotated.

I'm still holding out hope that he stays and plays midfield next season!

I really hope your friend is right. I don't want us to have to force him to stay like the Suarez debacle, I want Coutinho to want to stay!

If he stays and we invest in a left winger and new full backs I genuinely think we are title contenders next season.


2.) 20 May 2017 12:29:56
A Liverpool fan approaches a Liverpool player, he's not going to say yeah I want to go Barcelona is he?


3.) 20 May 2017 12:41:58
I'd hope Rodriguez does go to united and ends up playing as a second full back like Henrikh Mkhitaryan does. Particularly since it means another season of enmity and unhappiness at united.


4.) 20 May 2017 15:44:18
if there is any truth in rumours Neymar's dad/ agent suggesting he move away to come out of Messi's shadow then might impact on Coutinho wanting to move to FCB, I believe Neymar is the one constantly in the media about him going there.

{Ed002's Note - There are a couple of sides interested in Neymar but I would not expect a move this summer. Ideally Barcelona want to build around Neymar going forward - and they would be happy to see Messi move on. I have no idea what his father has said.}


5.) 20 May 2017 19:09:25
Ed2, I know that this is technically a European question ....

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Liverpool or Coutinho.}


6.) 21 May 2017 08:14:23
@Fency

The friend of mine who spoke with him is a coach from inter who is still friends with coutinho from their inter days. It wasn't a liverpool fan asking him.


7.) 21 May 2017 20:25:53
Thanks Nevada for passing that on mate 👍.

Haven't posted in a long time.

Was recently in the company of some friends at Real hierarchy and one mentioned (in passing) that James agent had been speaking about his clients preference for teams in the UK (Liverpool were mentioned as one) . Whether this was angling for better negotiating position or not is debatable.

I have not spoken to anyone who spoke directly with the player so I can't tell you his thoughts on the subject but thought I would share this info.

Why not if lopp wants him neymarbwants to play with coutinho
Theo for left back Jessie for defensive midfield.


2.) 10 Apr 2017 21:35:57
Surely only interested if Coutinho goes, would be daft no ey and daft wages so would prefer someone else.

Kovacevic has been asked by a member of the coaching staff how he feels about a move to England. I'm not saying we'll sign him because this happened about a year ago as well. He has defintely been asked though.

Nevada

1.) 05 Jun 2015 09:51:35
Coaching staff of whom? Croatia, Inter or some sort of third party?


2.) 05 Jun 2015 17:24:34
Inter

Question for ed001

Do you know if we will even approach ancelotti? I happen to know that he would be interested in talking to us about the job.

Thanks

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - no approach will be made to him while he has a job at Real Madrid, it is not even certain he will leave there now. The players have made it known they wish him to stay and the right replacement has not been found.}


1.) 19 May 2015 15:50:09
If only we could trade Rogers for ancelotti.


2.) 19 May 2015 17:57:39
Hi Ed, weird question but do you know of any managers that have effectively swapped teams? Ashy77's post just got me thinking about whether it has ever happened.

Cheers,

{Ed001's Note - I am sure it must have happened, but I can't think of an instance right now. I think I am forgetting some instances though as it feels like it has happened.}


3.) 19 May 2015 19:58:22
Did Birmingham and Blackpool swap managers last season?


 

 

08 May 2015 08:54:45
Sampdoria will not pay asking price and are looking for loan to buy with balotelli.

I still don't believe that coutinho will leave, I've had no fresh info since the last time I posted about him.

What I will say is that if he were to leave it would be a problem in the sense that attracting other talented players when you're a club which sells all its talented players is quite tough unless you're willing to make silly guarantees about playing time or ridiculous wages.

Its nothing new of course as we were doing it way back in the 90s too but it's hard not to draw a correlation between our change to a selling club and our inability to win the league. I think even without coutinho we'll probably do ok in champs league as it tends to be populated by teams which we do well against (expansive and offering space) but I can't see a league title any time soon unless we start building teams instead of farming them.

No team has ever won any major trophy by selling their best players. Even teams which won with youth (united, ajax) did so by retaining quality players and selling AFTER they won some trophies. Id like to see us do this.

How do you tell a prospective player that you're a good opportunity when you don't (not can't - don't ) compete? You tell them if they stay for a couple of years you'll get them a big money move to a big club.

Perhaps it's time for us to accept we aren't a big club anymore and we are simply a feeder club to big clubs. Mcmanaman said this once - does everyone else in Europe think this too?

Nevada

"Perhaps it's time for us to accept we aren't a big club anymore and we are simply a feeder club to big clubs. "
PERHAPS?
Mate its a fact we are a feeder club, not an opinion. Its been like that for 20 years now. If we win the BPL, people will see it is as LFC doing a Leicester, a one off.


2.) 07 Aug 2017 02:07:50
We are a feeder club of course to the best clubs of Europe. If you can pay us we can help you win trophies. Without success and us always spending big that is the only way plausible to sustain ourselves and I think it is the right way.
Every player has a price, it's business. I think after neymar saga it's great bit of business if the club can get 120 million euros of Phil. Yes he is our best player but we would be selling him at 15 times what he bought him for. Makes business sense, not footballing sense. And that's all football is.
Brood some young talent in there and move on.


3.) 07 Aug 2017 02:08:23
"No team has ever won any major trophy by selling their best players. "

REALLY?

Sold Keegan - won league and European cup
Sold Souness - won league and FA cup double a couple of years later
Sold Rush - won league
Sold Owen - won champions league.

Must have been my imagination.


4.) 07 Aug 2017 02:59:30
Liverpool need to change their policy of accepting big bids for their best players. If you bid big enough, Liverpool will sell. This has been the case for a while.

Alonso, Mascherano, Torres, Suarez, Sterling and now Coutinho.

Obviously in more than one case, the player caused too much distress and we simply had to sell as we didn't want to keep an unhappy player. But just a quick look at our own experiences with VVD and Keita tells you that if you don't want to sell the player, even if the player causes a little grief, you can hold on to the player.


5.) 07 Aug 2017 04:52:14
Real AG, all those players forced their way out of the club. better to sell than keep players that don't want to be here. couts will stay unless he wants to force his way out. keita didn't force his way out and VVD is trying to avoid a transfer request to save himself a lot of money.


6.) 07 Aug 2017 05:00:15
Remember when Juventus sold Pogba for a world record fee and then won Serie A, the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final?


7.) 07 Aug 2017 05:22:45
Can't remember that Smeg. Must've been in the 90's 😉.


8.) 07 Aug 2017 08:44:59
Sure, Liverpool will sell Coutinho and win the league then MK and Smeg?

How did it work out for Liverpool after selling Suarez?


9.) 07 Aug 2017 17:54:08
Pains me to say it but so true. If by some chance we manage to keep hold of him then maybe I'll give that a second opinion but it does seem we are still a selling club. Was hoping that we would stand up to Barcelona on this and we could if we really wanted to. Leipzig can do it, why can't we.


 

 

26 Jul 2017 10:20:04
Coutinho will not be leaving this season. I'm told he's very happy and is not interested in going to Barcelona at the moment.

Of course all situations can change in future but for at least 1 year (though I expect more knowing what I know about coutinho) he will remain a Liverpool player.

He has always been interested in Barcelona but he has said both publicly and privately that he would like to win some trophies with Liverpool before possibly moving on.

Nevada

1.) 26 Jul 2017 10:32:20
I think given how he's positioned in Liverpool side and with th fans, and securing a growing status in the international team now as a result, I hope he'd be keen to stay, watch his star rise further, cement a leading place in Brazil national team for the WC then move next year. moving now is not without risks to him.


2.) 26 Jul 2017 11:19:40
What is it you know about Coutinho which leads you to expect he will stay longer than one year if you don't mind my asking?


3.) 26 Jul 2017 12:24:33
"I'm told he's very happy and is not interested in going to Barcelona at the moment. "

"He has always been interested in Barcelona "

These 2 statements in the same post. Something doesn't add up to me.


4.) 26 Jul 2017 12:44:35
I disagree, Ron.

I've always been interested in the Bahamas, but I'm not interested in going this year.

If Nevada is to be believed, Pipco is interested in securing success at his clubs before ultimately fulfilling the lifelong ambition that most south american footballers hold of playing for Barcelona (or RM) .

I respect him for that, if that is indeed the case, and hope that he can help us get some sustained success over the next 2-3 seasons before making the trip to Spain, hopefully with our best wishes, and in return for a very large bushel of notes.

Hi,
Question for ED001 if he is about. The clamour for midfielders this season (in particular CM) makes me wonder if the club has decided that perhaps Hendo will have these injury problems permanently. Recurring heel injuries tend to be problematic for pretty much your entire life.

Do you think the club is looking at Keita and/ or Ox because they are not expecting a full return from Hendo?

Thanks guys.

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it is about adding something different.}


1.) 30 Jun 2017 10:40:12
Thanks for the reply ED. Much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


2.) 30 Jun 2017 10:41:46
Defenders who can head a ball - that would be adding something different.
I think we've enough variety in "midfielders who can run around a lot".


3.) 30 Jun 2017 11:07:56
How about adding someone who can take a corner? The opposition would never see that tactic coming.


4.) 30 Jun 2017 11:56:06
And a goalkeeper that can catch a ball.


5.) 30 Jun 2017 12:00:58
Jesus you lot give it a rest. I thought I was bad.


6.) 30 Jun 2017 12:05:28
Not a fan but in fairness, migs has shown improvement. That said, would be nice if we had defenders that could defend corners.


 

 

21 Jun 2017 12:23:31
Hi eds and posters,

Just a question for any ed really. Is hendos long standing heel problem one which is likely to be resolved? Is it the type of permanent injury which needs to be 'managed' rather than fixed?

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - hard to be sure, it is possible it can be fixed, but, I am told, that only happens for some people. Some people just have to learn to manage it.}


 

 

23 May 2017 10:43:05
Nice to see big Phil stating publicly what he has been saying privately for weeks now.

"Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour, " - Coutinho to ESPN Brasil

It's rare to see a player for whom honesty is important.

No matter how good your sources may be they can never be 100% certain until a move or decision is made and done. It's nice of macca eds and others to share what info they get.

I don't believe that turning Barcelona down this year will rule out Phil's move next year. Barcelona have choice but to wait, their first choice (verrati) isn't available and their second choice isn't available right now.
Why would they be trying so hard to get second choice if they could just easily get first?

Coutinho said (back before all the drama) that he would not be leaving this year publicly and privately. I expect that's true. Either Barcelona will give us an offer that's impossible to turn down now or they will come back next year with a lower offer (which will likely be accepted) . They can't (as ed suggested) just go get verrati instead. He's first choice - if they could get him they already would have.

Nevada

{Ed002's Note - They can't get their first choice at this time. Think of it this way, if Coutinho were to leave tomorrow, would Liverpool be willing to wait until next summer to replace him?

Barcelona want a replacement for Iniesta this summer.}

I respectfully disagree @theRealAG one of gomes best qualities is his quick thinking and reading of the game. More often than not he appears to play 5 or 6 seconds ahead of his opposition. Good players can do this.
For me the question marks are against his mentality and his stamina.

Let's also not forget when Phil came to us we got an inconsistent yet very talented and humble individual willing to adapt to the team and put the time in to learn the league and style. He was not the semi finished article he is today just like gomes wouldn't be. Phil also came to us as a player who struggled in a weaker league (like gomes though arguably gomes is further than Phil was as his work at Valencia was outstanding) people were skeptical when we were rumoured with Phil and after we signed him for quite a while (not me I was sold on him based on what friends at inter had told me) there's quite a few parallels that can drawn.

I'm not sure I'd agree there kopite7 I gave many good points. As far as creative passing and dribbling go gomes has a similar level of talent to Phil. Sacriledge I know but it's pretty true. I coach friend of mine at atletico said when they scouted him previously they ear marked him as having the same potential as David Silva (though obviously not the same skillset)

To answer your question BobbyJJones some posters may know ex players, coaching staff or journalists. I personally don't know anyone in Prem but I have at a few Italian clubs and at Real. I also know a few journalists but I'm always more sceptical of their info.

Maybe a club salary cap similar to what exists in the NHL would help. It would need to be a bit more stringent and also attempt to be a bit more level but since you can't cap players salary then enforcing a cap on how much clubs can spend on salaries would be the next best alternative.

It would also need to avoid the trap of the cap being x% of the club turnover as that simply shifts the problem and doesn't solve it.
