Hi ed001,

As promised here is my match analysis for potential Liverpool target Ryan Sessengon in Fulhams 1-1 draw with Brentford.

Now let me just start by saying that if you check my previous posts, I was certain that while Ryan shows promise he isn't ready for the first team of Liverpool. However I now take that back.

This young lad I really think is the real deal. Once again he showed incredible skill and desire on the pitch and really didn't seem like a teenager at all. Playing in the left of a midfield 5, Not only was he a threat everytime he had the ball (including showing real maturity and unselfishness to pass it to Cairney in the box when through on goal for Fulham's goal) the thing that really stood out for me was the fact that he really made a massive effort to track back and win the ball back when ever it was lost, and I mean like really sprint as hard as possible back to try and win the ball back. I loved it. Any time the left back, Malone, gave the ball away up the pitch it was Ryan who was giving absolutely everything to get back in position. Add on top of that the fact that he also takes set pieces (although didn't today) then I really think he could offer a lot to Liverpool whether as a left back or a left wing (where he played today) .

I've now watched this lad at least 20 times live and he is getting better with each game. Yes he still has his faults like any young player would (for example he does lose possession quite a bit) I still think we should go all out and get him as a player for our first team squad next season. The only thing that worries me is that he is vertically silent on the pitch. I don't think I've ever seen him say more than three words in a whole 90 mins which may be down to his age or confidence but I hope it's something he can change as the last thing we need is another silent member of our back four!

Let me know if you have any questions as I've no doubt forgotten to write half the stuff down that I intended but as you can imagine it's quite hard to type up a match report on a crowded train after a game on your phone!

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, nice to know you are coming round to the idea of signing him! I think the lad is the real deal.}

1.) 29 Apr 2017 17:51:00
Thanks lad hopefully we'll get the kid👍.

2.) 29 Apr 2017 18:25:18
The lad has been playing for a team chasing promotion in the championship so he can't be no mug.

If he's brought in to push Milner then that would do for me.

Milner hasn't been too bad at LB I'm sure he can do another couple of months whilst Ryan settled in.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 18:06:16
Klopp is very keen on the player as much as I know. I am skeptical about his defending and trackin back. Moreover he plays on the side of Degan Lovren!

4.) 29 Apr 2017 19:51:26
The sandman has just watched him live and praising his tracking back.

5.) 29 Apr 2017 19:58:20
If we sign him he's coming into replace Milner, Milner is totally out of his depth, simply not good enough. Seesegnon is miles better.

6.) 30 Apr 2017 00:20:38
Thanks for the match report Red Sandman, sounds promising for such a young player! I think one of the problems with Milner has been after we've had a lot of games and his fitness levels have dropped off, he struggles to keep up at times!

7.) 29 Apr 2017 21:56:24
You think we will get him ed mate?

{Ed001's Note - no idea, certainly not if they get promoted, he will stay then.}

8.) 30 Apr 2017 02:39:44
Milners has a lot to offer.
He's been played out of position and in my opinion ion he has done well.

There is a lot more that milnerror brings to the team. Remember the late high pressuree penalty against Swansea?

He kept his composure and slotted home the perfect penalty to keep our then winning streak going and put us in 2nd place.

I think he is a honest a player as you will get.



29 Apr 2017 14:27:04
Heading to the Fulham game today (have a season ticket) . Young Ryan Sessengon is starting on the left wing. If people are interested I will write up a match report of how he gets on.

{Ed001's Note - I would be interested mate.}

1.) 29 Apr 2017 14:37:14
Yes cheers bud.

2.) 29 Apr 2017 17:37:00
Absolutely. Go for it.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 17:45:54
Looking forward to it!

Ed001 I have a question for you if you are around. Seeing as its birthday today (he is only 35?), what was your opinion of Milan Baros back in the day? It seemed that one season he was our main striker (2005 I think) and then he wasn't given a shot after that. Was it just a case of Rafa no rating him?

Red Sandman.

Red Sandman

{Ed001's Note - he worked hard on the pitch, but he was a headless chicken, similar to Shrek at United now, just running round with little effect on the game as he didn't make the right runs. Baros also lacked the composure to finish the chances he got. Decent back up forward, but he didn't want to be a back up. Rafa didn't rate him enough to make him first choice, hence why he went and signed Torres. Rafa liked his players to have intelligence, which sadly Milan lacked.}

1.) 28 Oct 2016 20:55:01
One of my fave battlers and had hair like him too lol. would have been better suited playing for a more technical team.

2.) 28 Oct 2016 22:43:32
Another Houlier signing.

Not a lot of KOP! (Geddit? )

Hi Eds and fellow Reds,

I had the pleasure of being at the Fulham vs Burton game last night where the young 16 year old left back, Sessengon, scored a last minute equaliser. He seriously impressed me through out the game. Are any big teams interested in him? I am a Fulham season ticket holder (live 5 mins from the stadium) and let me tell you this kid is set for big things. Please oh please Mr Klopp sign him up for us. Especially when we have no real left back talent in the U21 side either.

Red Sandman.

Red Sandman

{Ed001's Note - he is being watched by lots of clubs mate, I think they said they had 18 scouts at one game to watch him, if I remember correctly.}

1.) 14 Sep 2016 12:50:38
North or south of the river?



06 Sep 2016 17:07:11
Hi Ed002 if she is around,

What are you thoughts on Mino Raiola recently stating that he expects that within the next 3-4 years for transfers to break the £200m mark for a single player?

Simply put, how can clubs afford such an outlay? Is it simple a case of the new TV deals or are there other factors that are coming in to play?

Thanks in advance.

Big love
Red Sandman.

Red Sandman

{Ed002's Note - He has seen the projected income figures that have been estimated for each of the "elite" clubs considering the breakaway - and there is some foreplay going on right now. The thing is that for some of the clubs (several, not just one or two), the figures look way too high for me. Regardless, he knows he is likely correct.}

1.) 06 Sep 2016 20:11:20
Think he is just setting market expectations for what he expects to earn in the near future. 😀

If you are in any industry you try to talk up the market when it is in your interests to stimulate it. why should a football agent be any different.

Having said this I do find it interesting that Utd spent the same with Raiola as we spent on our record signing. Apparently Raiola can't play LB either so wouldn't have been worth it for us 😀.

{Ed002's Note - It i exactly as I said Kiddfan. There has been a prediction carried out by an accountancy firm given the exit criteria over three different dates. It was shared with the clubs that are part of the breakaway discussions on Monday Morning - and Mino is basing what he said on that - nothing more. As I said, I would caveat the figures as some seem bery high for some cluns - but supect Mino will be proven to be correct.}

2.) 06 Sep 2016 21:19:59
The higher the transfer fee, the higher the cut for the Agent, did you know that Mino Raiola earned more from his wheeling and dealings than Ronaldo earned last year .

3.) 06 Sep 2016 22:10:01
These super agents have some interesting names don't they?
Kia (Joorabchian), Pini (Zahavi) and Mino (Raiola) .

Don't think I'll ever become a super agent with my name 😡.

4.) 06 Sep 2016 22:23:34
Foreplay? Ed, what Mino does in his spare time is none of my business and after seeing him, quite disturbing to think of.

5.) 06 Sep 2016 22:49:03

I can no longer un-read that, Ron. It`s stuck in my brain forever. Thanks a lot, Ron.

Ed007, I have mixed feelings about Stefan Johansen. He can be brilliant and times and pops up with the goals here and there but my word can he sometimes go missing! Case and point was a few weeks back against Blackburn. Playing at home, 2-1 up, we lose the ball in the final minute up the pitch and he just stops moving, not tracking back at all leading to blackburn to score a last minute equalizer. It looked like he gave up and couldn't care

He has good energy though and when he seems up for it him and T Cairney can cause the opposition a lot of problems

(Apologies for this being non LFC related ed007 asked for it! )

Red Sandman.

Red Sandman

{Ed007's Note - He was a great player for Celtic in his first 18 months - he won the PFA POTY after his first season - but his second full season was exactly as you've described which is a shame because as you say when he is in the mood he is a terror to opposition defences.
I was disappointed when we sold him as I'd have liked to see how he would have reacted to Rodgers high pressing style but the fans had been on his back and I can understand why he wanted away from Glasgow.
Cheers for the info mate.}

Thought I would chip in here with my two cents worth. I have a season ticket at Fulham. I've been watching young Ryan very closely this season. While I do think he has immense talent and with the right drive could be very very good, I am not quite sure he is ready for first team Oren football. He is still young and makes a lot of mistakes. That being said he has quite the left foot, can play in defence or on the wing, and is actually quite handy at set pieces!

{Ed007's Note - How's Stefan Johansen doing if you don't mind me asking mate?}

Just to add as well that Delle Ali played lower league football too. As did Ramsey. As did Gareth Bale and Lallana for that matter? Just because they are currently playing in the lower leagues doesn't mean there aren't good players to be found. Dilbert.

Lee you are posting rubbish again. Man Utd did not sign those players after a single performance. If you remember correctly Utd actually announced the singing of Hernadez before the World Cup had started!

Red Sandman

{Ed001's Note - and Park Ji Sung had been tracked for a couple of seasons. Suarez was defo not signed on the back of a good World Cup either.}

MK Scouser,

I mentioned this on a post before but I am a season ticket holder at Fulham and have seen a lot of him. I don't doubt that he isn't good enough, what worries me is that he may be a season away from being ready for us. What worries me is if we buy him, he has a few games in which he makes mistakes (like any young player would) and then some of the fans jump on his back, his confidence drops and he rots away in the reserves or is shipped out on loan numerous times around the country (like Markovic who many (including Ed002 herself) would agree was bought in a season too soon) .

From watching him play this season I think he could be exactly what we need long term! I just want it to be properly planned out, whether that involves him spending a season on loan back at Fulham or him being integrated into the team slowly in cup games, I don't know! The lad is only 17 (just? ) after all!

Out of curiosity Ed001 who, in your opinion, would you say is the most underrated player in the league?

For me, I would say Henderson. This is because it really does seem that no fans, except for some Liverpool fans, rate him.

Red Sandman.

Red Sandman

{Ed001's Note - I would say he is certainly up there, he is the most underrated in our side at least. As for the rest, there are very few players that aren't ridiculously overhyped, so it is difficult to pick any out as underrated. I would have to put Dembele of Spurs up there though.}

I think we are well stocked in our front three. Plus why would we look to get a replacement for Coutinho in January? January is the more expensive of the two windows to go after a top class talent. Furthermore let's say we do buy a "replacement" for coutinho in January, then what? The replacement is happy to sit on the bench to wait until Cout leaves?

Highly unlikely if you ask me. If anything I predict very minimal movements (maybe sakho out) in January
