Eds, anything to the chatter about Marco Asensio? Looks like a talented player.

Thanks.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - Madrid are not looking to let him go.}


1.) 15 Aug 2017 11:38:20
top young player worth putting in a huge bid we need some good news these days FSG need to spend big now or get OUT.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 12:00:28
Has signed a new contract with a huge buyout. Zidane likes him, so forget it.


3.) 15 Aug 2017 12:07:02
He is seen as Bale's eventual replacement. Asencio is going nowhere and blaming FSG till you are blue in the face will not change that, Newts.


4.) 15 Aug 2017 12:09:36
I thought his buyout (in current market adjusted terms) is reasonable?

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to Liverpool - ignore the clauses.}


5.) 15 Aug 2017 12:19:28
FSG are not the problem. They are willing to back klopp. I suspect if coutinio played for another team, we would be calling them crazy for turning down £90 mil. He isn't that good. Class yes, replaceable yes will we find suitable replacement, doubt it.


6.) 15 Aug 2017 12:31:18
Would be great. Got really excited when I heard this rumour then I woke up. Hearing rbl's recent comments I think kieta is moving eh. Hopefully anyway. What makes me worried is the speed with which we acted when the window opened. Couple of days and we had salah and dom, shortly after we had Andy. Klopp said he wanted business done in time to let new players settle. That makes me think we are not signing anyone else. Or if we are, it'll be a knee jerk reaction to pc mess. I love pc but he's really put us in a difficult situation. I blame his agent and barca. We could have had lacazette.


7.) 15 Aug 2017 16:37:34
We won't get him but did anyone else see his goal against Barcelona at the weekend? Almost a carbon copy of Robbie Fowler's at Old Trafford all those years ago.


 

 

14 Aug 2017 03:11:28
Eds. Are there any legs to the Insigne rumours? Have we had any recent discussion with Napoli about him? If so, is a move for him strictly contingent on PC staying or going?

Separately - any word on Coutinho's and Sturridge's fitness for Tuesday? I thought DS was supposed to be ready for the Watford match.

Thank you all again eds for all the work you put in on this site. It is by far my go to place for LFC news.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any interest in Insigne from us. The players at Napoli we have held interest at some point this summer are Koulibaly, Ghoulam, Hysaj and Zielinski. Koulibaly was considered as an alternative to VVD. Ghoulam we bought Robertson instead. Hysaj would only have been if TAA had struggled badly. Zielinski is only a possibility if Can goes, but he is one of many potential alternatives the club identified.

Couts won't play. Studger was left out as a precaution, he is available just not 100%.

Thank you mate.}


1.) 14 Aug 2017 07:51:27
Thanks as always.

Do you mean Coutinho was fit but decided not to play against Watford?

{Ed001's Note - no, I don't think he would have played anyway, he does have a niggling injury.}


2.) 14 Aug 2017 08:01:05
Ed is it still Couts injury keeping him out or the situation?

{Ed001's Note - it is the injury, but it will be interesting to see if he will play when fit....}


3.) 14 Aug 2017 09:22:15
Koulibaly and vvd are needed truth be told. Its ok us scoring for fun but leaking goals just negates all that fantastic football. Top keeper needed too. Couts money spent. Get as much as possible. Need it sorting and fast.


4.) 14 Aug 2017 11:31:58
I looked at that Man United team yesterday and they dominated West Ham in every department, that was not good to watch at all. They were no only out playing them, but they physically dominated them as well like men against boys, that is what we are up against and I fear that we will fail that test miserably. Where is a Graeme Souness when you need one?


5.) 14 Aug 2017 12:34:41
We raise our game against the bigger teams. It's the stoke, bourmouths, palaces of this world that we seem to come undone against. I would be happy if we could get a bit more structure to our defending. Going forward we have so much pace now, we won't struggle to get goals.
Need to do extra sessions in set piece defence. if we are even doing it lol by the looks of it. you would wonder haha.


6.) 14 Aug 2017 14:21:46
If a team wants to play football we generally beat them, rarely lose. I don't know why we fail to break down 10 man defences? Don't see why we don't buy a cheap "big man" that guy at Swansea? Just to throw on at the end of games against the so called lesser teams if we need a goal. Never hurts to have a plan C. That is why we didn't beat utd last season, Jose didn't have the bottle to play football with us. Think the games are going to be explosive this season. We need to sign another high class midfielder as utd have bought well and we are on the verge of losing our best player.


7.) 14 Aug 2017 15:03:32
Superred, Solanke is actually very handy in the air, built like a brick out house and saves us having to buy another.


8.) 14 Aug 2017 15:04:12
I have a feeling ward would organise our defence properly at set pieces. Mingnolet is simply not bright enough or influential enough to organise them and karius doesn't speak English does he? Wards main attribute is confidence. I really hope he gets a shot as I rate him. It's not like our game is based on keeping clean sheets. What I mean is, with our style we are always going to concede so I see no problem in shifting things about back there. That said I haven't forgotten mingnolet heroics at end of last term. People are knocking him on here but he did a hell of a lot to help secure ucl qualification.

Eds, Danny ward was set for talks with klopp, I read somewhere. Any info on his future? Thanks for your input. Brilliant stuff.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect Ward to seek assurances or a move. He won't get the assurances.}


9.) 14 Aug 2017 15:27:44
Thanks for reply ed. Sounds ominous mate. Sorry to go on, how do you see lfc's gk situation? Do you think we have enough? Who do you prefer out of the three.

Best football site on the net. Absolute privilege to have your insight eds.

{Ed001's Note - bit hard to pick one, each has not yet proven to be good enough over the longer term. However Migs showed signs of improvement at the end of last season, Karius and Ward haven't had a proper chance to prove themselves. So it is difficult but for me I would have got rid of Mignolet a long time ago, he is too nice and goalies need to be a bit nasty and keep the defenders on their toes. Personally I would like to see Ward given the shirt, he did enough with Huddersfield to suggest he deserves a shot.}


10.) 14 Aug 2017 15:48:08
Thanks a lot for the reply. I too would like ward to get a shot. If Huddersfield form won't get him a game I don't know what will? Didn't know that about mings, interesting. Thanks guys. Have a goodun.


11.) 14 Aug 2017 16:05:00
Spot on Ed001. Give Ward no.1 shirt for the season - Migs at his best still just doesn't cut it.

Still cannot believe we haven't addressed our back 5 during this window. Yeah Robertson was signed. but really! I mean really! Is that it? know alternatives to VVD? No other keepers considered? What was the verdict on last season. Great going forward, crxp at the back. Well the crap at the back is still at the back. Gutted.


12.) 14 Aug 2017 18:48:41
Well said red reaper. I know klopp believes in training over recruitment but there is a horse in a field at the end of my road. He could be trained by Henry Cecil and rode by Frank dettori but it's never going to win the derby. The boys resemble lost sheep defending set plays. We need x lot more work on the training ground but also someone outstanding. In every part of the fidld we have people you would call world class, except at the back.

Ed002, what team do you support?

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - I am from the Seattle area and grew up around San Francisco before moving to London in 1981, and having split my time between Monaco and the South of England since then - with a few excesptions. I am fundermentally a Third Lanark supporter with leanings toward Chelsea and Greenock Morton. Liverpool are my fourth team.}


1.) 13 Jun 2017 06:58:33
Do you follow any US sports teams? I grew up following the Redskins on TV. Do you think in future many EPL teams will develop sister franchises in the US like Man City have done with NY City (Boston Reds? ), or is that a one off because of who the owners are?

{Ed002's Note - No but we were in a Sonoma bar when the Golden State won the basketball. Not us but there you go. The MC owners want a portfolio not franchises. The Red Socks is rather incidental but FSG are sports investors.~


2.) 13 Jun 2017 07:55:14
Sounds very much like Ed02 is an international playboy. can picture him lounging on a Super yacht in Monaco Harbour surrounded by bikini models.

{Ed002's Note - Right now we are hanging out with Englsh friends in Somona and then heading elsewhere for week.}


3.) 13 Jun 2017 09:34:46
Ed"s you couldn't lend FSG a few quid could you? :)


4.) 13 Jun 2017 11:43:24
Tax dodger hehe.


5.) 13 Jun 2017 12:04:54
This may be a question too far, but are you in the business or do you just have good ties?

{Ed002's Note - I don't wear ties very often, generally only weddings and funerals.}


6.) 13 Jun 2017 12:12:14
Love sonoma, is the three amigos winery still there eds? Lovely, friendly people in there. Also remember an outstanding sandwich place, with a bit of a BBQ station outside of it.

{Ed002's Note - There are no end of wine options here.}


7.) 13 Jun 2017 12:21:46
Is that the one in California? Good wine in that area. I'm off to Ibiza and I've just seen Messi is there with Fabregas and Suarez, might have to try and get a snap for the sightings page!


8.) 13 Jun 2017 15:00:47
Thought Ed002 was a female. No disrespect meant Ed - thought there were some postings back in the day that alluded that!

{Ed002's Note - If you can afford it I can be whatever you want.}


 

 

11 Jun 2017 04:11:05
Eds, do we continue to hold interest in Pulisic? Are we making any efforts to acquire him this summer? He is turning into a real star in the States. Have to imagine he's got JH's attention. And I think he'd be a quality addition for LFC as well. I know the eds get asked about him here from time to time. Just hoping for an update. Thanks a lot.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - Christian Pulisic has said he is happy where he is and doesn't want to move.}


1.) 11 Jun 2017 09:00:56
That's never going to happen.


2.) 11 Jun 2017 11:35:41
Thanks for the reply. I assume that was before Tuchel left. Maybe something has changed since then. Fingers crossed.

{Ed002's Note - Tuchel doesn't come in to it.}


 

 

08 Jun 2017 01:52:55
Eds, I've read our official release, but is there any chance we can revisit? We've said sorry. Pay a little bit more to make it worth their while. He wants to come. We want him to come. Any chance we can still get it done?

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - yes that is a distinct possibility that the club pays up to end the issue.}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 04:44:52
If we throw in Sakho plus the 60m, will it work?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it, they are not interested in Sakho. While it is a distinct possibility, it is a possibility I really do not see the club taking.}


2.) 08 Jun 2017 04:45:28
I know we are already held in low regard in the way we deal in the market, but this would be embarrassing. The club statement said we have ended interest in the player.


3.) 08 Jun 2017 05:46:54
It wouldn't be the first time a club signed a player after officially declaring they were no longer pursuing a player - PSG and Silva.


4.) 08 Jun 2017 10:07:13
So, sorry, I'm not clear - what is the release clause in VVD's contract? £70m or £50m? Or are the club now saying they want £70m, sort of like what we did with Suarez?


5.) 08 Jun 2017 10:15:57
Us and Balotelli?

Ed001 - 2 hours to go. Any more incomings do you think?

And any word from Macca?

Any chance marcovic stays this season and provides depth on the wings?

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - The club are trying to sell him so it seems very unlikely.}


1.) 10 Jul 2017 17:21:56
Ok thanks.


 

 

25 Jun 2017 04:50:46
Hypothetical for Ed001 -

Money isn't an issue, you can sign any two realistic targets of ours (excluding salah who we've already brought in) this window. Who are your two?

Scouse Spartan

{Ed001's Note - hmmm realistic targets is a relative term, but for me it has to be two full backs - Mendy and Pereira.}


1.) 25 Jun 2017 13:34:13
Cheers for the reply. That would be nice.

Thanks. Have you watched him at all? Got any opinions on him?

Is it same login details on other sites?

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I have only had MLS highlights on in the background while editing, so not really seen him. I have heard a few things about him though.

Yes, all our sites you can log in with the same details.}

Thanks a mil Macca.

If we aren't waiting to qualify to sign them, what else could we be waiting for?

And do you have any insight into Phil's attitude at the moment and how he'd be if we held on to him?

And how is Klopp and Coutinho's relationship at present?

Thanks again.

Any chance you could please check back in with Macca and see if he has any new info at this time?

Or you could just pass along his number and I'll ask him myself, haha.

Thanks.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - Macca has said again both will arrive and Coutinho will stay as far as he knows.}

Do we know what they feel would make it worth their while to sell? And do we know how far away we are from the valuation? Thanks.

Scouse Spartan

{Ed002's Note - Right now they have told the two interested sides that he is not for sale. I think that will likely change at some point during the window as, in my view. his position is untenable.}
