Hi Eds, has there actually been a meeting as Spanish publication Sport claims between Coutinho's agents and Fenway Sports Group in Boston with representatives of to make it clear that the Brazilian ace still wants a move to the Nou Camp?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - it was not exactly like that but it is true that it has been made absolutely clear to the owners (the club already knows) that Coutinho wants to leave.}


1.) 26 Sep 2017 13:31:52
As if anyone had any doubt anyway after this summer lol.

3.) 26 Sep 2017 13:52:14
Coutinho wanrs to leave? Since when?


4.) 26 Sep 2017 15:40:39
Ed is it possible he might leave in January? Also I thought Barcelona said in the summer it was now or never?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer questions about the timings of transfer nor any questions which include "is it possible". Barcelona have other options they are considering as well.}


5.) 26 Sep 2017 16:37:41
What we panicking for?

It was this year or never so I was told. We wouldn't sell on a 5 year deal for 100 mil, why would we take less.

Rather have 4 years outta the boy.


6.) 26 Sep 2017 19:13:38
As it stands at the moment Liverpool have a good chance of reaching the following stage. Barcelona may do so as well but would not be able to use Coutinho. It makes no sense him leaving in January but perhaps his desire to join Barcelona over-rides anything else.


 

 

22 Sep 2017 10:25:31
Are we genuinely interested in Dayot Upamecano Eds or is this more papertalk? It's almost hilarious if we are interested as the papers have an 18 year old who is worth between £7.5m and £12m max and us having to pay €100m.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - There may well be interest from Liverpool in Dayot Upamecano - he is attracting the interest of Barcelona and Manchester United as well.}


1.) 22 Sep 2017 14:32:33
Get out is he 18! I thought he was about 25. Agree he isn't worth €100m but if he is 18 he is seriously talented.

{Ed007's Note - He turns 19 next month.}


2.) 22 Sep 2017 19:16:42
Is he a CB ed?

{Ed002's Note - yes.}


3.) 22 Sep 2017 19:51:31
Anyone seen him play. ?


4.) 22 Sep 2017 20:12:56
Looks like a good prospect.

Built like an out-house and good in the air.


5.) 22 Sep 2017 21:08:40
Is Leipzig the new So'ton? Just asking.


6.) 22 Sep 2017 22:42:09
What position does he play? I have never heard of him. He better be a beastly centre back 😂.


7.) 23 Sep 2017 11:59:23
I've only seen him once when i watched Leipzig earlier this season. I have to be honest i was watching Keita, but from what i remember of Upamecano he was a monster. I had no idea he was still a teenager so just assumed he was a decent centre back. Now i know he is barely out of school i want to watch him again, more closely to get a better idea.

All i can say is he looked like a seasoned pro, and was physically dominant. I wouldn't like to say any more after one game where i wasn't paying much attention to him.


8.) 25 Sep 2017 04:20:26
He has some pretty impressive ball skills - more like a midfielder than a CB and gets up the pitch quickly.
He is defensively strong and good in the air as well as tackling.
Is he worth 100m? Well no, I don't think any defender is - but at 19 years old he has longevity on his side and if VVD is 70m pounds then 100m euros ain't that bad!
Mind you we won't get 100m for all 3 current CB's so its a $$$ outlay.


9.) 25 Sep 2017 19:14:04
I think we should avoid signing players with difficult names. Too problematic for fans.


10.) 25 Sep 2017 22:26:05
I try to pronounce it with an Italian accent.


11.) 26 Sep 2017 22:35:35
I heard he was a Upandcomingo CB with a lot of promise.


 

 

03 Sep 2017 19:51:07
Fenerbahce have made an offer for Lazar Markovic on a one-year loan according to the Turkish media reports.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are still pushing to sell. Maybe they will bite the bullet over this one.}


1.) 03 Sep 2017 20:03:05
With no takers on a permanent move I think they'll have to bite the bullet on this one Ed002 mate.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}


2.) 03 Sep 2017 20:05:45
Is the transfer window still open for Turkish clubs?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - until the 8th I think.}


3.) 03 Sep 2017 22:34:08
Agree with Ed on this one. Just get what we can. I wish he would have worked out here but wish him all of the best.


4.) 03 Sep 2017 22:45:53
I would personally like to see him get another chance. I don't think he did that bad for us when he did play. I know he didn't do so well on loan, but sometimes being surrounded by better players can bring the best out of someone. Wijnaldum didn't exactly shine at Newcastle did he.


5.) 03 Sep 2017 23:09:50
Winjaldum did shine at Newcastle, he was there best player.


6.) 03 Sep 2017 23:32:04
Maybe a bad example Lucas, but you get my point.


7.) 04 Sep 2017 01:45:50
I liked him when he first started. Showed glimpses of his potential, but Markovic looks like he isn't enjoying his footy with us. Id let him go so he can try to get his career back on track with someone else.


8.) 04 Sep 2017 08:27:26
I agree with Phil. Besides getting the impression that he's not enjoying his time with us, I also get the feeling that he is not driven enough to fight for a place in our team. I watched him closely during our preseason games and he just didn't put in a shift - the one which would show his intention of pushing for a place in the team. Also, from what little I have seen of him, he seems to lack the work ethic that Klopp expects from his first team players, especially the 11 that are on the field. The lad deserves a chance to play elsewhere and in my opinion it would suit everyone if he moves on permanently.


9.) 04 Sep 2017 12:00:27
Markovic was an expensive mistake and we should just bite the bullet and move on. Kent, Ojo, Woodburn, Wilson etc are all better than him.


10.) 04 Sep 2017 12:40:42
he was a victim of Rodgers's wild spending spree, best for him to move on.


11.) 04 Sep 2017 15:42:11
I think we should bite the bullet.


12.) 04 Sep 2017 16:44:55
Lots of cowboys in today, I think we should just sell him.


13.) 04 Sep 2017 16:40:46
Marko played one decent game against Sunderland, and that was only for the first half!


14.) 04 Sep 2017 17:10:20
My Geordie mates reckon they're well rid of gini. I'd say he's been pretty good for us tbf but they all slate him for going missing or not putting effort in.


15.) 04 Sep 2017 18:16:48
LucasLeiva-Wini wasn't Newcastles best player, he was dropped to the bench a fair bit towards the end of the season.


16.) 04 Sep 2017 18:36:01
Wijnaldum reminds me of when jonny barnes played in midfield they have similar technique strong on the ball skilful eye for a pass, he just needs a goal away from home, all in all he's been great for us he had more assists than coutihno last season.


17.) 05 Sep 2017 14:08:52
Markovic had potential but was mishandled IMO and it's set back his career. Admittedly he perhaps also could have picked himself up and tried again, but it's clear now he isn't inspired to play his best for us and needs a move. Hope he gets it and goes on to a good career.


18.) 05 Sep 2017 16:44:32
Wijnaldum is one of my favorite players in our side. Keita's signing could push him down the pecking order a bit but he's been well worth his salary and what it cost to sign him. He definitely was Newcastle's best player and any Geordie fan giving him a hard time was just aggrieved that they went down for a season unexpectedly.


19.) 05 Sep 2017 19:17:10
I'm with the biting of said bullet.


20.) 06 Sep 2017 07:40:41
U got to wonder why in the hell we wasted 20 mil on him?!


21.) 06 Sep 2017 13:32:14
He was supposed to be Brenda's new dentist and part time hair stylist I read in a highly reputable Spanish rag called Sport. :)


22.) 06 Sep 2017 17:27:27
I used to be critical of gini until I seen his game statistics. Brilliant. Out of ox, Hendo and himself, he come out tops.


 

 

04 Jul 2017 20:41:03
Hi Ed002, 2 years ago you mentioned a young River Plate player who moved last year to Lyon. and FINALLY LFC are said to be trying to sign him for around £15m. Any truth in the new Emanuel Mammana whispers going around?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Best question of the day - this was a real target before and I would need to check. If you have heard anything it has passed me by but is very viable.}


1.) 04 Jul 2017 22:26:57
Any more info on this lad Ed? What position does he play? How old is he? Is he highly rated? I will be honest I've never heard of the lad so any info would be appreciated.


2.) 04 Jul 2017 22:41:42
Sorry, that was last season's stats, now 75 with potential of 86 - same potential as VVD. Not THAT's the clincher, lol!


3.) 04 Jul 2017 22:40:29
From Wiki, he's a 21 year old Argentinian CB who moved to Lyon in 2016. Played 17 games for them last season. Has got 3 full caps for Argentina, as well as youth caps. Looks to be quick, but that's only based on FIFA, lol! If you're interested, rating of 72 with potential of 86!


4.) 04 Jul 2017 22:43:21
Apparently, according to 'The Sport Review', the player is holding out discussing anything with the club until Liverpool and Lyon have reached an agreement, following Liverpool's €17m bid.

Sensible boy, wants to avoid any more tapping up issues. I like him already!


5.) 04 Jul 2017 22:44:06
Absolute beast on footy man. A proper steal.

Ed002 is usualy spot on with him doubts and pros about a player.

This would be a good move based on those points alone.


6.) 04 Jul 2017 22:26:57
Any more info on this lad Ed? What position does he play? How old is he? Is he highly rated? I will be honest I've never heard of the lad so any info would be appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - He is a CB at Lyon.}


7.) 04 Jul 2017 22:33:42
You are going to be asked this 300 times a day now.


8.) 04 Jul 2017 22:50:03
Hendos heel. Emanuel Mammana is 21 years old and a central defender that can also play at right back. In some ways he reminds me of Mascherano. He's comfortable on the ball in defensive pressure positions and has a fairly good footballing brain that would have been more at home in a midfielder (which is why I think of Masch) . he's fairly good in the air as well.


9.) 04 Jul 2017 22:55:16
Best CB on the last two years FM. Therefor we should sign him.


10.) 04 Jul 2017 23:20:26
This would end interest in any other centerbacks surely.


11.) 05 Jul 2017 00:36:53
Does he call his mother
Mama Mammanna?


12.) 05 Jul 2017 00:50:07
Lets hope he is nothing like masch then reynard. Good footballing brain is not something you associate with masch.


13.) 05 Jul 2017 07:46:39
Simply if we carry on in this manner you can forget toast . This transfer window will be more like "brown bread"
For I think the eighth time in two years I'm posting. policy and who ever is in charge of our transfer approach need making accountable. Not good enough, Not acceptable .


14.) 05 Jul 2017 08:50:41
Would he need a work permit?

{Ed002's Note - Of course.}


15.) 05 Jul 2017 09:08:01
Hard to see how it will PAN out.

WE will do well if We Use our LOAF

WE need to get on a ROLL

The league is our BREAD and butter.

Hopefully we wll get a SLICE of luck.


16.) 05 Jul 2017 12:45:55
Hope the window is like brown bread. Healthy for our title prospects, filling in terms of the squad depth and tasty in terms of quality.
The 2 signings we've made so far seem quality. Let's be patient and allow the loaf to rise, so to speak.


17.) 05 Jul 2017 19:15:50
Sounds excellent. Forget Southampton and their 70 million price tag. Dreamers. We've paid their wages for three years and they treat us like dirt. Do one. 16 mil for promising ball playing beast of a young centre back.

Could grow into a fine defence. Hope we batter Southampton this season four times. Their gk giving it all that to Milner and he missed. Want Phil to curl one in bottom corner and sturridge with a brace znd mani and salah on sheet too.


18.) 05 Jul 2017 19:16:09
And never deal with them again.


19.) 05 Jul 2017 19:19:39
Depends what you mean by "a footballing brain" masch could break opposition attacks and find a red shirt. Barely played a poor pass (most passes were no more than ten feet) he could slow down games and also slot em in the bottom corner. Went to Barcelona dilakh2 I think he did have a good footballing brain although not the most creative. Imo you need both sorts of player in title winning midfield.


20.) 06 Jul 2017 00:33:09
He was a good defensive mid jonny but his lack of footballing brain limited any other role he could play. Hence why Barcelona shoved him at cb were even there he is rubbish.

{Ed007's Note - You can't beat a good defensive mid jonny, they give much needed extra protection compared to those ultra thin ones that just rip when you try to stretch it on.}

Hi Eds, Is it true that Tottenham have declared an interest in Sakho?

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 21:27:28
Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


2.) 09 Jun 2017 02:10:43
Can I ask where you think he'll end up? I know it'sthe kind of speculation you hate but it's just nice to have an educated opinion.

{Ed001's Note - it would be more of a guess, despite his form last season there was very little interest, due to the asking price and his wage demands. There is always the possibility of a newly-rich club like AC Milan looking to him. His injury makes it more likely he will not leave this summer to be honest.}

18 Jan 2017 13:03:49
Hi Ed002.just a quick question re the whole Matip affair. With the cited problem being that Matip did not "officially" write to Fecafoot to inform them of the retirement whilst he was at Schalke (it seems Schalke did not give him appropriate advice in 2015). do you think that FIFA will move to an investigation on Friday? My personal view is that if they follow the letter of their own law then we'll lose him for the entire AFCON. Such a pity if it happens as it's such a silly mistake and was easily avoidable.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - The rules are clear as to where the responsibility resides for all such matters and the expectation remains that FIFA will try to draw a line under the matter on Friday. It is not a silly mistake and the person responsible at Liverpool should have known better.}


1.) 18 Jan 2017 14:40:04
Thanks for the reply Ed002. I understand what you're saying but the complaint actually extends to the original point of time when Matip was a Schalke player and not a Liverpool player. It looks like LFC will claim that they reasonably "assumed" Matip had been given the correct guidance by Schalke's employees when he originally retired from international football and was a Schalke player. I'm just saying what I've read to be honest from various press reports. But thanks again for always being on hand and enlightening.

{Ed002's Note - You may wish to go and read the rules about club responsibilities in terms of player eligibility. Any arument of stupidity on behalf of Liverpool will simply be referred back to the rulebooks (FA, UEFA and FIFA all make responsibilities crystal clear).}


2.) 18 Jan 2017 16:33:20
It's lack of due diligence on the clubs behalf.
Matip said pre season that he would probably be going to the African cup of nations.

This should have set alarm bells ringing at Anfield as an officially retired international player wouldn't have even mentioned going.

When players sign for a new club, lawyers, agents, doctors, managers, accountants, prem league. Etc. All get involved lookingafter the player and the clubs interests
How this was missed by so many people is amazing given Matips own statement on the ACN.

{Ed002's Note - One person is responsible at all clubs - and one person only.}


3.) 18 Jan 2017 17:49:35
every season from when I first starting supporting Liverpool, and that is from birth, we have always messed something up, we always have on our books, someone who is not tuned in, this has held us back big time, I hope Klopp shows whoever messed up this time, the back door, if we ever want to win the premiership, we can't have wasters on our staff/ books .


4.) 18 Jan 2017 17:52:48
ED02 taking nothing away from the fact someone at the club responsible hasn't clearly done what they are paid to do. If Cameroon didn't even select him for the AFCN in their final 23 squad. Why do they dig their heels in so to speak?

Thanks in advance for the response.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what you mean by "dig in their heels". And it is nothing to do with their "final 23". They had in December made it clear that they would like to have selected him - and that alon should have been ringing alarm bells at Liverpool even if they had already screwed up. There continues to be an obsession with trying to blame someone else.}

7.) 18 Jan 2017 18:27:04
Not at all ED02. I read a fifa advice experts (apparently) outlook on the whole situation.

He said that no written statement was done by the Secretary of L'Pool and so the Cameroon FA said they know nothing of Matip confirmation of retirement from International football.

That said he hasn't been selected for a while for his country. advised them he was retired whilst at Schalka and so he could not understand that although they selected Matip for the 33. He was injured at the time. Cameroon then went onto not select him for the 23. His outlook was an error on Liverpool's behalf. but cannot see why Fifa have not just stepped in and ended it.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained what has happened and I have explained where responsibility rests. He has never advised them that he was retired. Your last message was looking to blame his country for digging their heels in and now you want to know why FIFA do not "step in" to resolve matters such as this. The question has been asked of FIFA and they have said that they will discuss it on Friday to see if it needs to be looked at further - they have done what is appropriate. I am not going to explain again where responsibility falls as it is oerfectly clear.}


8.) 18 Jan 2017 21:03:59
Thanks ED02 for the reply even though I have annoyed you slightly. Appreciate the effort you put into this site.

I think a P45 maybe on the horizon for the Liverpool secretary.

I wouldn't be too worried given his contract doesn't expire until the end of June 2021. He is (reportedly) more than happy with life at LFC. plus Josep Maria Bartomeu is probably trying his best to placate the shareholding fans who saw the loss of Neymar and a failure to sign PC from us.

Lemar is a deal with all parties apparently on the same page. expensive total package of around £70m. Don't know anything about Keita but we have no interest in Renato. This is according to Melissa Reddy.

If true I think Pipco is gone. and we'll have Lemar and a CH coming in the next couple of days.
