Was the hands-off warning on Pulisic just in the winter window or does it apply to the summer as well? Thanks.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund don't want to sell him but are aware of interest from several sides including Liverpool. He signed a new contract in January and Dortmund will resist a sale in the summer.}


1.) 13 Feb 2017 15:42:57
Ok thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 13 Feb 2017 19:02:10
I'd imagine we would have to pay over the odds to get him.


3.) 14 Feb 2017 13:26:59
We would have to pay what they believe he is worth to them same as any other transaction. Whether we feel it's over the odds or not is completely irrelevant.

Ed001 do you foresee any significant additions coming in for us in January?

Happy New Year to all!

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it is difficult to get things done in January and stupid prices are being floated around for players.}


1.) 02 Jan 2017 12:25:11
Thanks for the reply Ed.

Do you think we've got enough already for the duration of this season to challenge?

{Ed001's Note - yes. I am sure we do.}


2.) 03 Jan 2017 00:25:30
Ok great. Thanks for your reply. Makes me more confident even if no big additions come in. (Would still like us to get Pulisic though hah)

Eds. if you've got a minute -

With the articles being written about Dortmund "warning" Liverpool off Pulisic, should we believe that there's fire with the smoke, as in we are keen and trying to bring him in in January?

And if so, should these "warnings" be interpreted as posturing for a better price, or is there actually no chance they will sell?

Personally I think he'd be a great addition!

Thanks!

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - there is no chance they will let him go for anything other than an obscenely large price in January.}


1.) 16 Dec 2016 06:52:02
Then we should stear clear imo, surely Klopp understands what they have said ed and that it will take an obscene amount of money. Better off not wasting time in trying?

{Ed001's Note - that won't stop the bull in the papers though will it?}


2.) 16 Dec 2016 08:18:03
I wouldn't be surpirsed if the club spends close to £30 mill on him. Which player did we sign on cheap recently? Wijnamldum, Mane, Firmino. He is an American and would certainly interest the owners. The most important part, He is an exciting player. I am convinced the club would make an attempt to buy him eithe in Jan or Summer.

{Ed001's Note - £30m is highly unlikely to sign him.}


3.) 16 Dec 2016 08:49:20
I am pretty sure we would buy one Winger / wide forward either in Jan or Summer. The kid is young and knows our interest. I am pretty optimistic the club would try to sign him. I can't see another cheap option out there which would excite Mr Klopp.


4.) 16 Dec 2016 09:51:53
There must be other options out there Harry. If his club don't want to sell him meaning we will have to pay crazy money then other options must be explored.


5.) 16 Dec 2016 10:09:00
I put something up a few weeks back about this desire to sign a wide player during this window, its evident that Klopp wants to strengthen this area.

Player wise isn't Draxler having a bad time in wolfsburg at the moment could this not be an option looked at by the club?

How has Sisto done since his move to La Liga liked him for FC Mit?


6.) 16 Dec 2016 10:30:30
Daxler isn't the right player and He would end up at Arsenal. Brandt is a good shout but I guess we will end up with Pulisc.


7.) 16 Dec 2016 13:07:29
We won't get Pulisic in Jan thought that's the point I was making unless like others have said we pay stupid money. So what is left available as we can pretty much be sure Klopp wants to add a wide player in Jan.

No doubt he could pluck a player from the bundesliga that we have not had banded about as yet.

I put Draxler out there as it appears he may well be available and has quality. Brandt is excellent but if the release clause does not exist then it will be hard to get him away.

I wonder will the Milan clubs persist with any interest the media claims to be there for Sakho.


8.) 16 Dec 2016 14:23:03
They warning Liverpool not to waste their time with moneyball or lowball tactics.


9.) 16 Dec 2016 21:21:02
Didn't see the logic behind Klopps statements on needing a winger/ attacker. Wing is where you give a young attacking player his chance, we have a couple of them. Pulisic might be seen as an extreme talent, worth getting at (almost) any cost, but it all seems strange. That said, with Couts, Sturridge, Can and Ings injured the bench haven't looked impressive to say the least. So there's an argument to buy.

But JK is far to clever and careful with money to do that. I think he is signing a winger in january not as cover for Mané, or injuries but to give the new player time to adjust for next season, when there will be European games and we'll surely need more depth.


10.) 16 Dec 2016 21:30:45
ojo has been promised game time, how will he take the news that another winger is coming in?, will Wilson consider his options?
I don't know if the kids are good enough but why spend bucket loads on someone else's child when we have 3 of our own to look after.


11.) 16 Dec 2016 22:10:36
maybe this talk of signing a wideman, is one way of taking the pressure off Ojo, he is very close to full fitness, and being on the subs bench very soon .


12.) 17 Dec 2016 04:47:57
I think the important thing is, does Pulisic want to come and is he for the move or egging for it? We seen Klopp abandon moves for Gotze and Zielinski because they were not pushing for the move here.

I think one of the Eds was very high on Max Meyer, have we looked at him as an option this window? I know Schalke don't sell cheap though.


13.) 17 Dec 2016 14:36:03
Matip on a free is the deal of the season.

When you consider what we paid for Lovren.


14.) 17 Dec 2016 15:12:54
This is all speculation so let`s all wait and see what happens as Ojo is the one penciled down to get game time when Mane is off to ACN. As for Pulisic, it is a nothing burger as he is not willing to sign, BVB won`t sell in Jan neither will they sell in the summer, IMO. Why? He won`t start ahead of our front three when all are fit so that would be 35m or so wasted and what happens to Woodburn, Ojo and Wilson? Exactly, it seems like people just want signings without analysing the impact on the field, financially and the like. It`s this type of thinking that got us Markovic who was and never will be a PL player as he was never ready for it.


15.) 17 Dec 2016 23:22:43
We've got talent as good as pulsic on our bench and in u23s.


16.) 18 Dec 2016 02:27:57
So why would we apparently be after him then?

{Ed025's Note - dont believe all you read on the internet or in papers mate..


 

 

16 Jul 2016 21:12:29
Sky saying we are interested in Jonathan Tah. Haven't heard anything on him here in a little while. Anything to it Eds?

Cheers.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything changing.}


1.) 16 Jul 2016 22:22:02
As always, thanks.


2.) 16 Jul 2016 23:37:24
Tah very much Ed.


 

 

17 May 2016 15:38:47
Eds, first time poster, daily reader for years now. Thanks for all that you do.

Quick question - Any chance we go for Christian Pulisic? Looks like a real talent. And also looks like arguably the most exciting American prospect. Think it would be good marketing for FSG in the States to continue to spread the LFC brand by locking up the most promising American prospect. Looks like a win-win. I know he was mentioned a while back, but haven't heard anything in a while and was wondering if there was any update.

Cheers.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund certainly won't be open to selling Pulisic - John Hackworth got Klinsmann to look at him not to long ago and he did arrive at Dortmund when Klipperty was there. The push would likely of come from someone under Zorc to take him there. Perhaps a long term replacement for Reus? Real Madrid and Manchester City have been looking.

And do Liverpool really need yet another AM player?}


1.) 17 May 2016 16:43:53
Fun fact about Pulisic. Spent about a year in England and played for my local club, absolute top draw. Can't remember why he was in England but we were about 6 or 7. Pointless info I know but it makes me feel inadequate seeing him playing for Dortmund and me still in sixth form!


2.) 17 May 2016 16:52:33
Pretty impressive he's only 17.

Ed002, thanks for your reply. And in response to your question, I would think (assume) at age 17 he'd be ok being a rotation player to begin?

{Ed002's Note - One of the clubs will leave hime where he is for a year for purposes of insurance. He is certainly not going to be getting in to the first team of either side just yet.}


3.) 18 May 2016 03:45:37
Another fun fact, Christian is from my old stomping grounds and hometown, Hershey Pennsylvania. Chocolate town USA. thank god he escaped!


4.) 19 May 2016 00:30:59
Considering Goetze injury history, wage demands, Klopp's ability to nurture talent, Pulisic might be a better/ safer long term buy that Goetze.

Ed.,

Any chance of us going for Keita Balde this window or in the summer?

Thanks!

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 25 Jan 2017 13:46:07
Better off letting Ojo develop he has all the attributes to become that type of player if not better.


2.) 25 Jan 2017 14:21:34
True higgings mate


 

 

24 Jan 2017 01:12:56
Disclaimer: I may be reading too much into this.

Was just wondering, with the reports out that Klopp says he's frustrated with the window (apparently because we are struggling to get our targets at a reasonable price), this is in direct contrast to what we've heard from the eds about not expecting any pieces coming in this window.

Has anything changed since then? Can't see a reason why Klopp would not be telling the truth here (unless he's trying to light a fire under a few of our players) .

Ed. anything imminent or in the works (with incomings) for this window?

Thanks!

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea which Ed told you not to expect anyone arriving in this window.}


1.) 24 Jan 2017 12:07:01
Klopp also said that the clubs don't want to sell in January.


2.) 24 Jan 2017 14:28:48
If I remember correctly, I think it was Ed 01 who said it.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't say we were not going to try mate, just that I didn't expect us to be able to bring anyone in. January is always a difficult window, unless one transfer kicks off a big merry go round.}


3.) 24 Jan 2017 17:51:56
Ok cheers. Thanks for clearing that up.


4.) 24 Jan 2017 21:27:18
I seem to remember how difficult it was to get Alex Texeira in from Chahktar last Jan. We went all in for him but they were asking for stupid money hence we pulled out. This explains why Klopp hates the Jan Window. Unless you are willing to break the bank (something we should not be doing), you won`t get players you actually need.


 

 

18 Jan 2017 13:54:27
Anyone know if the American lad Brooks Lennon (currently playing for our under 23s) is close to getting a chance with the 1st team, or is he still a ways away?

Scouse Spartan

1.) 18 Jan 2017 14:38:55
think he is going back to the American League on loan


2.) 18 Jan 2017 14:59:05
He's been very good this season for the U23s and he's just gone out on loan to the MLS to get some experience I would imagine. One of the most underrated players for the U23s in my opinion


3.) 18 Jan 2017 15:58:43
Are you sure? He played the other day under 23 vs man u.


4.) 18 Jan 2017 16:27:28
Going out on loan I should say


 

 

14 Jan 2017 20:54:42
Any word on Matip's availability for tomorrow?

Scouse Spartan

1.) 14 Jan 2017 22:58:39
Well he isn't free until the afternoon because we're having breakfast at Tiffany's.
