Hi Eds, I've been reading recent paper talk and seen links to Timo Werner, is there any truth to to theses rumours? As I feel he'd be a better alternative to Lacazette (who I previously said I wanted us to sign) based on what I've seen of him recently and on highlights. Also what are your thoughts on him? Thank you in advance.


{Ed002's Note - RBL's Timo Werner was of interest to Spurs before he left Stuttgart but that interest seems to have gone. The German press have been asking Werner about Liverpool but he has remained respectful about the club but has not mentioned any interest. RBL have said nothing since they mentioned that scouts from Chelsea and Liverpool attended a game in December where Werner scored against Hertha Berlin and in January Liverpool and Dortmund scouts watched him score against Eintracht Frankfurt. Given he only joined RBL last summer and his season is going well with Leipzig more than likely being in the Champions League next season, RBL will not be looking to sell and I doubt he will be looking for a move.}

If Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain (I think it'll happen), left back (any of tierney, mendy or ghoulam who I think we should look at) and a CB (say Van Dijk) would people class that as a successful window for us? Because I would! Although some people will want a 20+ goal a season striker, I don't think that's necessary right now nor would we have to funds available to buy one. There could be a shout for another winger and I wouldn't be against signing 2 wingers this window! Maybe Pulisic (not sure if we still hold interest) as he's young and imo is better than our current youngsters so I'd maybe like to see us go for him. Thoughts?


1.) 22 Jun 2017 19:17:43
Klopp fell out with perisic at Bvb . Think we are fine on the wingers if we get and will get salah.

2.) 22 Jun 2017 19:19:25
I think Oxlade Chamberlain would be a waste of money, as he's a very average winger and is absolutely ineffective in centre midfield, jack of all trades and master of none he doesn't have the intelligence or the skillset to be a centre midfielder and never will.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 19:45:11
Spending anything over £6m on Ox would be a waste, would tarnish the window as he is rubbish and will stop someone getting game time.

Otherwise that would be a good window, on one condition. If Sturridge cannot regain fitness then Jan window we do go for a 20+ goal striker.

Must must buy a top level LB otherwise it's another wasted window and massive lack of ambition.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 19:50:33
Salah and Solanke is a good start, don't get me wrong. But we need to sign Keita, VVD and a decent left back to make it a great one. Of course if somehow Auba could be snuck in then that would be an amazing window.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 20:06:22
Can't see kieta signing personally. As much as I want it to happen I don't see how he fits in the team without a couple of midfielders leaving. I'd happily lose Lucas, Stewart and potentially a grujic loan (if that's possible with work permit etc) to see kieta wearing our famous red jersey.

6.) 22 Jun 2017 20:38:47
£6 million? Laughable figure for a player of his age and Premier league experience.



04 Jun 2017 12:14:03
Hi Eds if we were going to sign a CB (I'm not saying we are) who would you prefer us to sign as a realistic player?


{Ed025's Note - keane of burnley maybe?..

1.) 04 Jun 2017 13:40:09
Thank you. wouldn't be a bad shout.

{Ed025's Note - he will only cost about £30m ted...bloody hell my first house in wavertree cost £5000...the world has gone mad mate.. :)

2.) 04 Jun 2017 13:45:04
I'd rather we line up with you as our new CB ed025. Keane is a die hard man united fan and I don't want one of those in the team. Plus he's poor as well. That too.

{Ed025's Note - i was half decent in my time FMS and to be honest i cant be any worse than klavan and lovren, carragher, fowler and macca were all everton fans mate but once you sign for a club your alliegences change, i think hes decent myself mate..

3.) 04 Jun 2017 14:31:59
Difference is that Carragher, Fowler and Macca grew up at Liverpool and they always felt a loyal connection with the club, plus the rivalry is a friendly one between us and I think if you have family that are red you'll still want to do your best. Keane is a Man United supporter through and through, he's played for United and still wants to play for them. I don't believe that we could trust him and the crowd would be on his back the first mistake he makes (and he makes some shocking mistakes, sk it wouldn't take long for that to happen), for his own sake he should go somewhere else as he just wouldn't be welcome at Anfield because of his allegiance and because he has given it large in the papers how much he loves united and dislikes us, so he can't change those words now. The laughable thing is that the £30m for Keane makes whatever the package to sign VVD City have paid look cheap, given that Keane only looks ok (I won't say good! ) because Burnley stick ten men behind the ball and when you examine his ability and scrutinise him, he falls well short of even being mediocre.

{Ed025's Note - its all about opinions i suppose FMS but i think your looking to deep int the man utd thing mate..these are professionals..

4.) 04 Jun 2017 14:43:33
Keane? Cough cough. It is quite simple really, just rather give Gomez a run.

5.) 04 Jun 2017 14:47:15
Keane won't come cheap considering VVD is priced at £50 mill.

6.) 04 Jun 2017 14:49:59
Keane is a good player to the level of Everton. Not good enough for Liverpool 😎.

{Ed025's Note - how very dare you.. :)

7.) 04 Jun 2017 15:04:34
VVD is priced at more than £50m Harry.

Along with his £10m a year contract.

If we do sign VVD then I really will not know what to say. Then VVD will still have to baby Milner and have a look at how Clyne runs up and down the pitch aimlessly.

8.) 04 Jun 2017 15:09:24
Professional in the very loosest definition of the word, I would add. Thing is, if he was just a transient player at United who was dumped early on, like Beardsley, I'd not give it second thought as he would have no loyalty to them. But this is a nailed on die hard United fan and its a completely different issue as he's said that they're the only team bar Burnley that he's loyal to as a suppprter and he's said that is for life. For me that rules him out. Notwithstanding the fact that he's just not very good which should be enough in any case. (Won't even mention the 25% sell on that United would get out of it. )

9.) 04 Jun 2017 15:19:30
I hate to say this, but I'm not convinced that Gomes is a first choice CB and that's what we need.

10.) 04 Jun 2017 15:27:32
I agree. All coz we did not cough up £12 mill for Chilwell last summer and did not replace Sakho with a proper CB last season. We are in need coz we not upgrade last time around. Yesterday's £25 mill is today's £50 mill. Quality remains the same.

11.) 04 Jun 2017 15:39:25
Harry, it does not work that way because if Lovren £20m two seasons ago was one of the best CB's in the League, came to Liverpool and has not lived up to expectation although he has improved then how can one say that VVD at some obscene price, being made the most expensive defender of all time and along the way, becoming one of the highest earners in the EPL going to guarantee that VVD will be any better than Lovren when both are from Soton?

Playing for LFC compared to Soton is at one massive different level. Ask any Soton player we have signed, especially Clyne :-)

12.) 04 Jun 2017 16:50:14

I agree there are no guarantees. But it is for this the scouts are paid. To have proper analysis of the player and where do they fit in with our current system, Do they posses all the attributes to succeed at the club. Are they an upgrade on the current one's.

What if Salah does a Markovic? He came with a reputation of the best young winger.

It's a gamble you take, In fact you must.

I am not crying out for VVD but after watching Lovren and Klavan I would love the club to sign one class CB.

13.) 04 Jun 2017 17:22:55
Comparing Salah with Markovic lol?

Marko had 1 half decent season where he scored/ assisted a handful of goals. Salah just hit double figures. You're clutching at straws Harry.

HOWEVER, I do agree about you final point re signing a centre back. I refuse to believe that there aren't better CBs available than VVD for less. Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A have more than a few!

What a game! Massive 3 points for us! Emre Can what a goal and what a game he had on top of that game. Definitely my motm tonight! Top 4 is ours to lose now! Keep working hard for the reaming games and do us fans proud and bring home a top 4 finish! YNWA.

Hi Eds reading what klopp has said in his interview before the palace game we have already started talking and negotiating with players for next season. Could you give any insight on who these players potentially are? Or if they are the same ones from the sharkopod. Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained what we know.}

1.) 22 Apr 2017 12:35:01
Sharkopod RedTed21, give it a listen but I am pretty sure Klopp has other targets in mind which nobody knows about.

It is not to say that the players we are interested in now will even sign for us so best wait for the start of next season as things in the transfer market change on a regular basis but thank heavens we have someone of Ed002's knowledge to keep us in the loop with current targets.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 16:58:44
I would propose that Klopp put a lid on it and stop talking about transfers until they are actually done.

Solanke can't play for our under 23's due to our transfer ban on signing academy players, is the right eds?


{Ed002's Note - Solanke is not an academy player.}

I've watched forest a few times this season as my dad is a forest fan and every time I've seen him and brereton play they've both stood out. Highly unlikely we'll sign either of them but if we did I'd like us to loan them back to forest for a season and then loan them to a prem side the season after. Then they could be ready for the 1st regularly.

VVD still to come then
Ox will come
Salah will come
2 LB's will come
would be fairly happy with that plus solanke who's already already here.

Winger - Brandt or Lucas moura
LB - Mendy (spend big there)
CB - Tah
LB - Tymon if we can't get sessengnon
CM/ Winger - Oxlade-chamberlain
For me that would be enough to have a competitive squad with required depth. And for those people saying we shouldn't sign the ox I think he'd be a good signing due to being able to play cm and winger. Plus singing Brandt or Lucas gives the option of playing coutinho in cm so therefore naby keita wouldn't need to be signed. This is just my opinion on who I think we should sign.

I for one wouldn't moan about signing the ox. Definitely a player that can improve our match day squad not staring xi but will definitely give options off the bench. I agree that he fits klopps style of quick powerful attakcers (mane and salah as examples) so don't think it would be a bad signing.

That's probably who'll be fighting for each midfield spot. Then there's still ejaria and Lucas (should he stay) then mane salah and ox fighting for the wings and ox potentially can play cm if we're light on numbers at any point in the season. Origi too can play wide same with sturridge. Then solanke and firmino and sturridge battling for striking a spot. Can't see origi playing as a striker too much next season imo.

Yeah, I'd definitely take another winger, any chance we could sign martins too?

I would assume so based on him being on the retained list this probably rules out another CM joining.
