Hi Eds, any truth in us allegedly preparing an £8.7million offer for Juventus teenager Francesco Cassata?

Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claimed on his website that we're to make a formal move for the versatile Juventus star, 19, who is currently on loan at Serie B side Ascoli. Allegedly Klopp likes the fact that he can play in RB as well as all across midfield including both wings.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing it, sorry. Francesco Cassata is out on loan this season (I don't recall where) and I don't know what is meant by "preparing an offer" means.}

Unless they're preparing "an offer they can't refuse" 😎🐴


2.) 12 Jan 2017 21:21:37
I think by preparing an offer it means that Ian Ayre is winding up the old fax machine so the offer should be in sometime tomorrow


3.) 13 Jan 2017 06:49:22
I wonder what ayre's last piece of business will be in terms of buying players before he jumps on his Harley and rides into the sunset.

Hi Eds (and fellow reds) . with Leeds unable to resolve the Charlie Taylor contract situation it's clear he'll move on this summer at the latest. are we interested at all?

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - he has been tracked for a while, but Milner has made the left back position his own, Moreno is happy to fight for his place and is working his backside off in training, and we now have Juanma making great strides in the U23s. I don't think we will push for him mate. Left back has become less of a priority.}


1.) 04 Jan 2017 11:39:37
Great to hear about moreno. As it is any player making such efforts! Positive strides edd?


2.) 04 Jan 2017 11:40:47
Been watching Juanma as well as the rest of the u23s and he looks quality. great going forward but most importantly, great defending. kid has a bright future.


3.) 04 Jan 2017 11:39:37
Great to hear about moreno. As it is any player making such efforts! Positive strides edd?

{Ed001's Note - shows he has the right attitude and that should be applauded as it has a positive effect on the rest of the squad.}


4.) 04 Jan 2017 14:27:47
A friend of mine (Jake Skelton) used to play with him at the academy, says there are 3 clubs are interested but, none of which are liverpool.
He said Charlie just wants to concentrate on this season and help get Leeds promoted. Where he's contracted till this year, he seems happy to play well and honour that part of things going by his interviews.

It has to be said, Leeds insistence on 2 year contracts for their promoted academy players hurts them year in year out.


5.) 04 Jan 2017 14:46:27
Credit to Moreno, losing your position to somebody who wasn't initially competing for your position is extremely hard. He has had his fair share of critics, great to hear him fighting back. His performance vs Crystal Palace away was very good to be fair to the lad. Brilliant for the rest of the squad when players are always pushing the first 11 for their spot which only raises their performances levels.


6.) 04 Jan 2017 16:43:14
Thanks Ed001 for the reply mate. good to hear about our current squad and potential players. And thanks chileanred for the insights. very cool to know.

ps - what is wrong with people at this site. I ask a question and get an immediate dislike. this is why I post less and less at this site, it's off putting.

{Ed001's Note - why do you even care whether people like or dislike what is posted? It could as easily be aimed at my reply as your post mate, just ignore them.}

Don't be put off by the disagrees Reynard. It was a good question, keep it up.


8.) 05 Jan 2017 00:20:57
If the like and dislike buttons were removed the site would be exactly the same.

We can all comment on posts so ignore the dislikes mate!


9.) 11 Jan 2017 03:50:57
I hear that Rob Jones has been back coaching on the full back/ wing back positions at the clubs training ground.
Does anyone know has Jones had any input into Morenos training recently.

I don't think there have been many better fullbacks than Jones.

Good luck Ryan Kent at Barnsley this year.

Time for Crystal Palace and LFC fans to stop getting excited over a move for Benteke (at least for the moment) as his agent Kismet Eris, refuted claims of bids, saying there's "nothing at all with any team" right now. He further claimed that at this stage he expects Christian Benteke to stay at Liverpool for the 2016-17 season.

Hi Eds, Have we made a bid for Raphael Guerreiro as Lorient's vice-president Alex Hayes suggests we have?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Lorient left-back Raphael Guerreiro has been of previous interest to Newcastle, Milan, Arsenal, PSG, Manchester City and Sampdoria. Marseille, Roma, Liverpool, Sunderland and Swansea have had watched the player this season. I understand from an Arsenal scout that they are looking again and that they will look to an offer. Roma, Liverpool and Dortmund (tice) have made offers that have been rejected. Barcelona has yet to make an offer but I suspect that the will.}


1.) 26 May 2016 13:48:42
SSN now reporting we have made a bid, is he any good ed?

{Ed002's Note - Measured how?}


2.) 26 May 2016 13:54:17
Thanks Ed002 for the reply.


3.) 26 May 2016 14:05:29
He looks similar to Moreno, arguably better attacking. On a review I saw for him, they put his one weakness as Tackling, a defender who can't tackle.

I guess everyone wants to know if he is better than Moreno, but that is difficult to judge till he plays in the premier league. He is young and hopefully learns his position better than Moreno seems to be able to.

I would still prefer a defender who defends first, like Hector, we have plenty able to provide in Attack. Trust in Klopp.


4.) 26 May 2016 13:52:47
I was just interested in your opinion on him as a player as I've never hears of him if I'm honest and I trust your opinion over pretty much anyone's.

{Ed002's Note - He is a decent player - try the search engine - this is not new interest.}


5.) 26 May 2016 16:09:25
Ed with you stating before we have been pretty ahead on Chilwell where does it Leaves Moreno then?

{Ed002's Note - I see Chilwell to be unrelated to Moreno. Another left back would impact Moreno - so if Liverpool were to make an acceptable offer for RG then I would expect Moreno to go.}

I just wanted to say to Man United fans that might find themselves on our pages. although we hate one another on the pitch. today, of all days, we share in your grief that was the horrific Munich air disaster of 1958 when so many were lost. In memory of those lost Busby Babes you do not walk alone.

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - well said.}

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.

Happy 31st James Milner #ynwa.

Reynard

1.) 04 Jan 2017 17:59:19
Happy 31`st indeed. Great player and Huge servant of the club!

{Ed002's Note - 18 months and he is elevated to the position of "huge servant" to the club - laughable. What gets bestowed on Nabil El Zhar for his five years?}


2.) 04 Jan 2017 18:12:34
Well Nabil El Zhar is clearly a city Legend Ed ;) even Everton fans celebrate his birthday for his services to Merseyside.


3.) 04 Jan 2017 23:20:23
Did FSG get him a cake? 😁.


4.) 05 Jan 2017 01:43:47
In the spirit of some of the posters on the site Ron, according to my sources, he'd be much happier with an early finish, a packet of rich teas and a big pile of ironing.


5.) 05 Jan 2017 03:32:02
Disagree, Ed. Milner could have spat his dummy out and refused to play LB or choose not to work hard at it BUT he did and has been great there, to my utmost surprise. As for El Zahr, not bothered really as I didn`t see much of him.


6.) 05 Jan 2017 07:33:55
Not being funny guys but Milner got so much abuse on here until he moved to lb and has done well. It's a bit rich to now say what a fantastic servant to the club he has been.


 

 

23 Dec 2016 17:07:54
Oscar Wilde once said, "After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations. " Merry Xmas, Happy New Year and EAT WELL all the Eds and fellow supporters.

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - Merry Christmas Reynard have a great one.}


 

 

01 Sep 2016 10:23:58
Although I'm a little sad that we didn't manage to get a LB in (particularly Chilwell) I'm actually happy that as a team we have not overspent this summer transfer window. Yes, Southampton have again made a transfer profit, as have Everton and Swansea but we managed a net spend (the figures obviously do not include the other costs like agents, etc) of -£510k. I want to see my team stable, consistent and not leaking money like previous years. so this is good from my perspective.

Good luck to the lad in all his future endeavours. With his his contract running out at the end of June he deserves it. In many respects he has been the perfect professional, playing whenever and wherever he has been needed. Many could learn a thing or two from his selfless attitude. Were he to stay with us he would have increasingly limited chances in both midfield and defence AND he really should be playing weekly somewhere. I'll probably watch whatever football he plays when I get a chance wherever he goes because he has been faultless in his support of us and the club we adore. He deserves ouyr support.

Perhaps Klopp doesn't think the youth players coming through have what it takes for his picture of Liverpool. In all honesty I find the Klavan and Wijnaldum (once he goes through) buys odd. but as always we simply can but sit and watch as the next chapter of LFC is played out.

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't matter, they are only for cover. Then replace them next window or in the following summer, when the squad is pared down a bit and you have filled the yawning gap at left back.}

I thought there was an history of failed payments to players due to disputes between Fecafoot and the Cameroon Sports Ministry. or at least I remember some headlines going back a few years where the players did not receive payments and refused to then play a match in Algeria.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - It is true of plenty of African sides.}
