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.}


 

 

25 Apr 2017 01:26:33
Schalke's sporting director Christian Heidel, stated that LFC will not be signing midfielders Max Meyer, 21, and Leon Goretzka, 22, or defender Sead Kolasinac, 23, according to RevierSport.

goo.gl/WKHEG

Reynard

1.) 25 Apr 2017 16:08:20
Kolasinac will go to Arsenal.


 

 

12 Jan 2017 14:47:19
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.}


1.) 12 Jan 2017 15:29:33
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.


 

 

04 Jan 2017 09:59:41
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.}


7.) 04 Jan 2017 21:57:46
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.

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.

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.

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.

I thought weather conditions and his ingrown toenails precluded him from cold weather countries.

“I have ingrown toenails and when it’s cold I need special treatment, ” he admitted. “I don’t see myself playing in a country where it’s cold. I hurt everywhere and I struggle to train. "

Can't see him wanting a move to us but he is a very good and creative player.

If Pipco goes then nobody can truly blame him. If he does and the board do not sensibly spend and stengthen then I believe they would have damaged their relationship with Klopp and us the fans. The dealings at our club have been badly managed year on year and yet nothing has altered. Consequently I have to believe that our heirarchy are not up to the job. this might be true or not but it's difficult to see passed the mistakes. If I made a mistake at work I'd possibly be warned. if I made the same mistake over and over again I'd probably be fired. but if my workplace allowed the same mistake to be repeated regardless of workers then they'd be negligent and stupid at the least. FSG need to stop their relative silence and express how they'll improve the protocols in future. the current transfer committee has failed to work well. If they do not then they are in danger of allowing us to convince ourselves that they are happy with the protocols because it suits their purposes.

It is also worth noting that Klopp himself was not too impressed with our overall performance in his post-match interview, stating "In a few parts of course it was good, in a few other parts everyone saw that Bayern had the ball too often and it was too easy to play through our lines. I cannot ignore this on a day like today. "

Thanks for the swift reply Ed002 mate. I agree with you and don't understand why such meetings (all of them) are not minuted so that no misconstruals can take place.

Interesting stuff Ed002 mate. Klopp was very silly. Re: Bezemer. The timing of certain meetings could have been better but is a meeting with Bezemer that problematic when Arena11 Sports Group also manage Mane? I was also wondering whether you think the transfer system generally will change given the power of agents and players in the current cash rich market?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - It is a problem if he discussed Keita. He had already been warned of the consequences by RBL hence Liverpool trying hard to avoid further complaints.}
