Hi Ed's, hope you're well, All these De Ligt rumours going around along with everyone saying how awesome he is (which is debatable) how do you rate Dayot Upamecano? and do you think Klopp would ever take a look at him considering he's playing in Germany and how much cheaper he would be as he's going for 30 million instead of 50 from what I've read, I've heard we have been linked with him in the past which I know doesn't mean a lot but was just wondering what you thought on his ability and if there was a chance we would look at him.

Cheers 👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any de Ligt rumours involving Liverpool and they have certainly not expressed any interest. Dayot Upamecano is similar in that Liverpool has shown no interest. Mr Mourinho has been a long term fan and he wanted the club to move for him, but the asking price of €100M for a player who, I think, has not played for his country is far beyond what most clubs would consider. Barcelona backed away last summer for the same reason. Prior interest of Arsenal and Milan went because of the asking price.}


1.) 16 Feb 2019 19:53:12
Could definitely build a team around him.


2.) 16 Feb 2019 20:46:44
Never seen him play to be honest but I do reckon Gomez is pretty awesome. Would hate to see us sign anyone that would impact on his game time. That guy is the future.


3.) 16 Feb 2019 21:31:15
Eder militao would be my choice, already capped by brazil and can play cb as well as rb.


4.) 16 Feb 2019 20:39:36
Eds1 I know you don’t rate De Ligt but seriously he is better than vid imho. You are normally spot on with your assessment of players but I think you have this one wrong. Not trying to be offensive.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate. Every time I see him play he is just another overhyped youngster with no positional sense and just another who can stroke the ball around under no pressure. All the ones raving about him have watched him at half pace in strolls around international football. It is not the same game as the Premier League.}


5.) 17 Feb 2019 07:55:59
So then Ed001 who in your honest opinion is the best CB in his age category at the moment in time? I know players develop at different rates. And who would you like to see Liverpool sign to cover the CB position. Would you replace Gomez or rotate him with someone else?

{Ed001's Note - why would I replace Gomez? When fit he was exceptional alongside VVD and they were the best defensive pairing in Europe. I don't want to rotate him, I just want to keep him fit and have cover for when he is not.}


6.) 17 Feb 2019 09:25:17
Gomez is the best centre back in his age category.

75 million for another centre back who ain't as good as gomez would be madness.

If indeed 75 million is what it would take.

Declan rice would be a better buy in my opinion. Bit like fabinho in that he could play midfield and cover centre back if needed.

Gomez needs to stop being played at right back. That where he gets all his injuries.

Id rarther see fabinho being played there if needed in the future and keep gomez at cb where with vvd he is part of the best pairing in europe.


7.) 17 Feb 2019 09:38:50
I don’t rate de Ligt or Upamecano - they both have massive weaknesses in their game which would be ruthlessly exposed in the Premier league.

{Ed001's Note - glad someone else sees it!}


8.) 17 Feb 2019 09:49:32
That wasn't what I was trying to get out of you ed001. I rate Gomez as high as anyone else. My question was who is the best CB in there age category. And who would you like Liverpool to sign and for what position in the squad (a starter to cover or to rotate)

{Ed001's Note - I don't see a better young defender than Gomez around.}


9.) 17 Feb 2019 09:57:53
It’s veru hard to buy a cb that is adequate cover, knowing full well they’ll be third choice at best. But we do look much less secure when it’s not Gomez and vvd, so we do need someone imo.


10.) 17 Feb 2019 11:32:16
I think De Ligt lacks real pace and as Liverpool play a high backline that is essential.


11.) 17 Feb 2019 14:17:28
This is not FIFA manager mode or Football Manager, players want their careers to advance. Not sure if you all remember a few years ago Gomez nearly wanted out, but Klopp promised him that he would be one of his four CB. Gomez has his injury problems, but his season was going good until he hit that board, something out of his control. It ain't like he is Studge who God knows what is injured always.

As a lifetime Liverpool fan it is frustrating to see supporters wanting to always replace our players with someone better, but we are offended when they leave for another team. If we have no loyalty to them then they should have none towards us. The squad is finally a strongest starting 11 since Rafa's day even stronger I think. Someone better not say Suarez and Sturridge the defense was shambolic then still. We just need quality depth at defense and players who understand that and won't ruin the atmosphere. City have spent over 200m+ on a back four and still have not got it sorted, so let's not be greedy about wanted better CB.


12.) 17 Feb 2019 15:08:21
Given the quality of VVD and GOMES I think it would be very difficult to get the quality we would require because they would not sign to “ sit on the bench”. I am not totally impressed with either Matip or Lovren and if there is not enough confidence in our academy prospects at this time then I think we need to be looking at players who are experienced and although past there best, they are reliable. I will leave that category to the Edds.


13.) 17 Feb 2019 15:53:11
I think with De ligt any club who would spend huge money would be taking a massive gamble, at that age it's easy for people to get carried away with his possible potential but he's playing in a far inferior league without facing world class attackers weekly. His price tag and his big reputation can't be justified until he proves it at a higher level. He's still only a teenager, at his age you see a lot of careers going different paths! Huge risk if anyone were to pay the big bucks.


14.) 17 Feb 2019 16:22:34
Can we all just take a moment to enjoy this from Ed;

'When fit he was exceptional alongside VVD and they were the best defensive pairing in Europe. '

2/ 3 seasons ago, our defence was so leaky that it would give a siv a run for its money. Did we ever in our wildest of dreams imagine that our beloved Liverpool would have THE best pairing in EUROPE?!? It is staggering just how impressive VVD has been and we must pinch ourselves at the fact a young kid sits alongside him and is just as marvellous to watch.

No matter how the season ends this year, we must appreciate what we do have. After-all, at least we're not everton fans amirite?

Keep up the good work eds! apologies for the sidetrack.

{Ed001's Note - good point mate.}


15.) 17 Feb 2019 16:38:01
Gomez is awesome there’s no doubt about it and I would select him over Lovren every day of the week but I fear with his short history (due to his age) that he might be injury prone. I’m not saying this is definite but I am saying it’s possible to see a pattern forming where he starts off well in a season and then gets a bad injury, I hope it’s just bad luck because he looks fantastic next to VVD as a partnership. I think I speak for us all when I wish him a speedy recovery 👍🏻👍🏻.


16.) 17 Feb 2019 18:29:25
We should be a little more grateful for what we have. A sub 20 first team CB playing at arguably the highest level in Europe, top of the league.

Too many supporters only get excited about new signings for the sake of it. De Ligt is unproven. Gomez is already ours. VVD and Gomez are our CB pairing for the next 5/ 6 years. Let’s get some better quality backups with positional flexibility in the FB positions.


17.) 17 Feb 2019 19:18:15
I agree. VVD and Gomez can build a cb partnership lasting 5 or 6 years possibly. I think if we were to go down the road of replacing lovren or matip the best choice would be to buy perhaps an older experienced cb, someone possibly who's used to winning titles, on a shorter contract and much cheaper transfer fee.

That kind of player can be invaluable around the squad as we've seen many examples in the past. Our first choice back 5 is very young which is great but I don't think constantly filling up the squad with "potential" is ideal. Quality experienced back up could be very shrewd if done right in my opinion.


18.) 21 Feb 2019 10:32:39
I agree Gomez is boss and the perfect first-choice partner for Virgil. No need to spend massive money on a new CB. Despite being so young (especially for a CB) and having such horrible luck with injuries (cruciate, achilles, and ankle surgery twice) he still inspires confidence. I really just hope we can start getting full seasons out of him. Hopefully with the latest injury being a fracture and not a ligament or tendon he can hit the ground running for the last 6 league games and later CL rounds. Along with Ox that could be just the tonic the team needs for that final heave over the line.

Hi Ed's hope you've had a great Xmas, I've read online (not twitter) that Dayot Upamecano is available for 30 million, this is very cheap for a player of his age and quality so I'm not sure how true it is but if so would you see Klopp taking an interest in signing him? Hope you have a great new year everyone 👍🏻

Many thanks

{Ed001's Note - I very much doubt that there will be any movement on central defence when both fullback positions have so little cover and the midfield might lose a couple of players in the summer...}


1.) 27 Dec 2018 05:32:39
Yeah Ed001. With Clyne, Moreno, Lallana and Milner (hope not) adding to it Origi and sturridge, we can expect a 3-4 signings and also back up keeper when Mignolet departs.


2.) 27 Dec 2018 06:20:10
We have 4 senior CBs in the squad. The fact that 2 of them suffered injuries at the same time is simply unfortunate, not a reason to sign a 5th CB. Like Ed001 said, the cover for Robbo and TAA is bang average and needs upgrading the coming summer and we could do with another forward to compete with our front 3 while Shaqiri drops down into midfield. OX also back next season so i think that the MIlner and Lallana departures will be covered by these 2.


3.) 27 Dec 2018 08:47:19
I would keep origi specifically for derby day!


4.) 27 Dec 2018 09:53:26
Is there a good chance that Milner will go in the summer Ed001? I'd let Winjnaldum go before Milner tbh.

{Ed001's Note - depends on him.}


5.) 27 Dec 2018 10:27:22
Every time i read Coutinho hard time in Barcelona makes me wonder if there is a little chance of him returning here he could replace Lallana but i know it won't happen just a dream. 😩😩😩.


6.) 27 Dec 2018 11:53:25
I like the idea of Couts coming back as our Lallana replacement, ie. squad player we rarely use other than to rest others for the last 20 minutes of the odd game.

It would be funny to see Couts fulfill that role after the way he forced his way out.

In practical terms it can’t happen, his attitude would be cancerous to our squads current dynamic, but it would be funny him warming our bench week after week.

I’m not bitter about how he left, honest.

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho will not be returning to Liverpool.}


7.) 27 Dec 2018 11:57:56
I don’t think our full back cover is too bad atm, Milners versatility really helps this but if he left it would leave us thin on the ground.

{Ed002's Note - Fabinho is a more than capable RB.}


8.) 27 Dec 2018 13:28:00
If Adam Lewis steps up, I think LB back up position is covered.
If we really look TAA future is in Middle then we have to buy a first team RB
When Lallana and Milner (hopefully not) departs, we have Ox to cover. Maybe anyone from Academy (I don't know)
I think we need a quality forward who can rotate with our front 3. Wilson needs another loan to Prem team IMO
And then a back up GK as Migs will leave
If Matip also looks to leave we have Nat. If Klopp deems he isn't good enough now then another 4th choice CB
I think this will be our summer transfers. Rest depends on the outgoing.


9.) 27 Dec 2018 15:06:33
LB cover/ competition should be a priority, especially with Moreno complaining about Klopp's man-management and not playing as well as his expiring contract. Someone who can also double as a RB as well would be perfect.


10.) 27 Dec 2018 18:23:24
I'd like to see Camacho given Clynes role next season. Gomez and Fabinho both more than capable RB plus Milner. Maybe invest in a left back who can play LW? I hear Gareth Bale is available (kidding)


 

 

02 Feb 2018 18:23:52
Hi Ed's, I take it the James Rodríguez rumours are a load of crap as I can't see any reason why Bayern would cut their agreement short amongst other things?

Red GT

{Ed001's Note - what rumours?}


1.) 02 Feb 2018 20:21:51
It’s said he wants to join Liverpool to replace Coutinho, I can’t see it happening myself but I just thought I’d check.


2.) 02 Feb 2018 20:41:23
Said by who?
Is that just desperation for a "big nsme" signing?
I doubt Klopp would take Rodriguez anyway.


3.) 03 Feb 2018 00:58:42
Click bait.


4.) 03 Feb 2018 11:30:18
Rumours that he’s good enough to replace Coutinho?

Yes, those rumours are a load of crap 😉.


5.) 03 Feb 2018 11:30:52
Liverpoo Echo. #boring.


6.) 03 Feb 2018 13:31:09
I didn't expect us to do too much this January. Vvd was brilliant and pc was gutting. We need someone who can unlock a stubborn defence like pc could but will we do that today? Doubt it. Lemar is the one I wanted.


 

 

07 Jan 2018 18:14:07
Hi Ed's, Thanks for all the hard work this time of year, I see the Draxler rumours haven't gathered pace since Coutinhos departure does that mean Klopp doesn't see him as an option or shouldn't we look too far into it? Also has anything changed on the Goretzka front as I've not heard too much recently on him either even after using the search engine.

Cheers

Red GT.

Red GT

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new really with Draxler. He is available and Arsenal do maintain an interest. His agent has approached a couple of German sides as well. Goretzka seems to have his heart set on a move to Munich in the summer although Schalke are still trying to come up with a contract he will sign - but I very much doubt that will be possible.}


1.) 07 Jan 2018 21:49:32
Maybe a loan would be a good option for Draxler and Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - He would only be available on a loan to buy (not a loan with an option to buy).}


2.) 07 Jan 2018 22:18:58
Ok thanks ed2.


3.) 08 Jan 2018 15:30:52
Are the loan to by deals mainly done to help the buying club in regards to FFP? Just trying to understand the reason for a loan to buy instead of getting the deal done straight away. Thanks.

Hi Ed's, just wondering if Gerrard leaving would effect Bobby Duncan's decision to join us at all?

Red GT

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}


1.) 05 May 2018 23:23:19
Who's Bobby Duncan?


2.) 06 May 2018 02:12:32
Stevies cousin.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 10:12:39
Hi Ed's, I'm glad for your sake that the VVD thing is done as there would only be so many times you can answer the same question without going insane lol just a question regarding money, do you think we are spending the Coutinho money in advance with VVD and Keïta coming or do we have this kind of money as we have been close to breaking even in the last couple of windows, I know you're not an accountant for the club but I was just wondering if you knew anything regarding the subject.

Many thanks

Red GT.

Red GT

{Ed001's Note - nothing to do with Coutinho.}


1.) 28 Dec 2017 14:59:18
We were going to sign both Keita and VVD AND keep Cou last summer until things changed so why would VVD's signing affect Cou's situation if it would not affect it last summer?


 

 

25 Dec 2017 19:59:10
Hi Ed's, merry Christmas hope you're enjoying the holidays, just wondering have we looked at Arthur the 21 year old that plays for Grêmio as a potential coutinho replacement as Lemar might be a bit more expensive at 90 million

Many thanks

This lad looks the real deal so far from what I’ve seen, could be a very good signing if his progress continues.

Would be nice but we all know Chelsea would be very reluctant to sell a player of that quality to us.

I think Emre Can will leave and become an even better player if the club he chooses to go to suits his style of play a little more, don’t get me wrong I don’t think he’s bad at Liverpool at all but I’ve just got a funny feeling he will flourish at a fast rate in a slightly different system which would be a kick in the teeth lol.
