Eds any chance of Origi returning for the final part of the season or is not up to Liverpool? Also does Klopp rate him or are we looking to get rid of him?

{Ed001's Note - unlikely.}


1.) 19 Jan 2018 10:03:38
He's not good enough!


2.) 19 Jan 2018 12:26:16
He's more than good enough Jay. This is the player who scored vital goals in both legs of our Europa League ties with Borussia Dortmund in Klopp's first season with us. He has great potential, has pace, can hold the ball up, get on the end of crosses, play anywhere across the front line and scores some excellent goals.

For me, should Sturridge leave I'd be more than happy for Origi to come back. I like him. I'd actually be disappointed to see him permanently leave Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - I eould not hold your breath about Origo "coming back".}


3.) 19 Jan 2018 12:50:36
Reid, you’re battling the usual comments. Origi, bobby, Hendo, Lallana, Salah, mane, can, Gini, Moreno, Robertson, TAA, Gomez, Karius, Coutinho, the ox, Virgil, Klavan, matip, Lovren, . it’s amazing what we’ve done in the last 2 seasons with an entire squad of ‘not good enough’. They also said the same about Suso and now want him back. Fickle.


4.) 19 Jan 2018 13:21:51
Oh I'm certainly not holding my breath Ed, I know it won't be happening and he's almost certainly played his last game in a Liverpool shirt.

And Swishcleaner, I was merely sticking up for another of our players. I accept it's a losing battle but I will defend our players from unnecessary criticism such as that when I can. I wish fans could get behind our players for a bit before they get judged for making one or two slight errors or below par games.


5.) 19 Jan 2018 14:56:01
Thought he wants to stay at Wolfsburg and sign on permanently, so not convinced he'll be back.


6.) 19 Jan 2018 15:28:17
Very poor player he has the first touch of a giraffe.


7.) 19 Jan 2018 17:02:21
Exactl swishcleaner, Origi in my opinion didn’t have loads of chances but for a young player at a top club he put in some great performances, average performances and poor performances but what else would you expect from a young player. We should bring him back and give him another season at least! YNWA.


8.) 19 Jan 2018 18:34:22
I'm not fickle swish it's just my opinion!
I don't rate him! I don't want Suso back either mate!


9.) 19 Jan 2018 19:30:43
Doubt he will come back. I just hope that if we let him go we put some kind of first option clause in. He may be our Kevin de bruyne and come back in a few years and haunt us.


10.) 20 Jan 2018 01:26:18
lol, fair enough Jay dub. I don't want suso back either, he's moved on and so have we. I don't know if Origi is good enough either, but i've seen enough to know that he might be and i'd like for him to come back and show that.


11.) 20 Jan 2018 08:13:03
I get what your saying swish but I don't think we need a player that "might be" good enough the team we have and are building now needs players that will come straight in to the team or even push the other 11 to play better cause their place is under threat! Origi doesn't threaten any of our front 3 in my opinion! Sorry for the rant 😂.


12.) 20 Jan 2018 10:16:45
All good jay, I wouldn’t suggest we go out and buy an origi but he’s already ours so. I think he done more than sturridge, Ings and Solanke have in the last 2 years ( obviously he’s very young) but I’d rather he had a chance ahead of those 3. Seems to be improving where he is as well which is why they want to buy him. I don’t see anyone rushing to take
Sturridge and Ings off our hands.


13.) 20 Jan 2018 11:02:29
I think Sturridge is finished love him but it's crocked now and on big wages! Ings hasn't had a run yet!
I get what your sayin tho about origi being ours and I do like him and he is only young but I'd rather see him develop and get game time then linger in our team and waste away and hopefully one day he does come back and makes me eat my words 😂.


14.) 20 Jan 2018 14:34:15
All I can say is that I blame Ed002 for Origi's misfortune at Liverpool! Ed002 cast a spell on him and said he'd never be world class! Now look!
Can you even defend that, Ed?


 

 

17 Jan 2018 09:16:24
Eds do we have an interested in Donnaruma and considering the financial mess Milan are into would a January bid from LFC be considered or they are not open to a January sale?

{Ed001's Note - he is a bit of a problem child and has been messing Milan about, they are not happy with him or that they were forced to sign his brother on a largish wage to keep him. Also the fans have turned on him because he is trying to get out of Milan. So they would be open to a sale but the options are limited as he expects to go to Real Madrid, as he thinks no one else is big enough for him. Have to wait and see if he is right but personally, good as he is, I think Alisson is better and I would move heaven and earth to get him.}


1.) 17 Jan 2018 09:37:04
Sounds like a bit of a big head to me and at his age, he sounds like trouble, I'd rather we kept away from such players personally.

{Ed001's Note - he has seemed to let things go to his head recently. Sadly.}


2.) 17 Jan 2018 09:55:32
Where possible i'd be keen for us to stay away from players managed by Raiola. there always seems to be huge additional costs associated with any deal he negotiates.


3.) 17 Jan 2018 10:09:42
Unfortunately it seems to be happening all too often with these youngsters, they have too much power some of them and think they can do what they want, they think they're bigger then clubs and I don't like that.

Aside from this I'd also like to see Alisson signed for us, I think he'd be the perfect fit for Liverpool. I don't know if there's any truth to it but I read Roma have put a £44m price tag on him, money is irrelevant to me. I don't understand the finances in football and not really interested in learning about it but should that be true I think we should go all out to sign him.

My only concern with singing him in this window would be Karius, he deserves his chance and if we brought in Allison this month he'd be back down the pecking order and probably sold in the summer which would in a way be a shame because I think he can be quite good for us but at the same time, Karius or Alisson? it's a no brainer.


4.) 17 Jan 2018 10:27:27
Spot on ed, from the outside looking in i feel klopp likes squad harmony. Allison looks a real decent keeper and i wanna keep bobby happy at liverpool so let's get the Brazilian, poor lads been left with moreno.


5.) 17 Jan 2018 10:33:08
Ed can i ask why Alisson and not Oblak?

{Ed001's Note - because Oblak has never had to do the kind of job our keepers need to do, whereas Alisson has shown he is suited to it.}


6.) 17 Jan 2018 10:56:33
Alisson or Oblak for me, but Alisson does have a very commanding presence and is a brilliant shot stopper.


7.) 17 Jan 2018 11:04:16
Thanks Ed for the answer! Hope we get him!

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't hold my breath, there are a lot of clubs that would love to get him.}


8.) 17 Jan 2018 11:08:29
oblak plays behind a team that sets up defensively with good strong natural defenders so as good as he looks he's not as much to do as others.


9.) 17 Jan 2018 11:09:16
Is the Allison rumor media gossip or have we actually taken a look at the lad?

{Ed001's Note - we have looked at him.}


10.) 17 Jan 2018 11:15:07
You know what Ed, if we used some of the recent addition to our funds to sort this out, it would probably have a greater impact on the team than simply buying a like for like replacement for Coutinho since scoring doesn't seem like a problem with Mane, Salah and Firmino.

{Ed001's Note - agreed keeper should be the number one priority now.}


11.) 17 Jan 2018 12:16:49
You only need to see how many games De Gea saves for United to see how many points we would pick up with a genuine top class keeper between the sticks.


12.) 17 Jan 2018 12:52:09
Why would Alisson come to us now? In the summer sure but right now, what's the incentive to move? I'm sure he wants the brazil no.1 shirt and where he is now he has a settled defense who he knows, the chance to play in the champions league with a very good chance of reaching the quarter finals at least (they play Donetsk) and most of the biggest domestic games still to play.

If he moves to LFC now he won't get any more CL football (which also means we keep playing a rusty keeper in the CL), he'll be with a defense he doesn't know and who are still far from settled with no practise games to ease into andmost of our big domestic games already done, with 2 of the remaining 3 being away games.

He knows the risk of this being a 'now or never' opportunity is low and we will be back in the summer if he wants it. So unless he's a secret diehard liverpool fan who would give his left nut to pull on the shirt tomorrow, and even if we assume Ed002 is wrong and we are actively looking to sign a keeper this window, and that somehow we can convince Roma to part with him mid season despite really not needing to, what exactly would Alisson gain by moving now?


13.) 17 Jan 2018 13:30:30
If we buy Allison it will not be to come to us now but to come to us in summer.


14.) 17 Jan 2018 13:52:21
Cheers for the reply ed, fingers crossed the club make the right move. In truth I didn’t know much about him until the speculation. As of now, I’m happy Karius is getting the opportunity to impress but the potential aquasition of a potential star does get the heart pumping.


15.) 17 Jan 2018 14:00:27
Hjikle the answer is simple, a pay rise. Do not underestimate the power of money, even to these footballers who have more than they need, more money is what they want.


16.) 17 Jan 2018 14:00:58
Thanks Ed001 for the answer. If there is a chance of signing him i would get him for 50-60 mil and sell him to Real Madrid for 150+ after a couple of years 😁.

{Ed001's Note - welcome, but would it not be better to just buy Alisson for the long term?}


17.) 17 Jan 2018 14:14:46
The keeper shouldve been number 1 priority some time ago. Desperately needs sorting out imo.


18.) 17 Jan 2018 14:26:30
Beef - perhaps true at other times but considering a good world cup with Brazil would probably get him a high wage in negotiations anyway, is it really worth risking it for him? Probably not, there is still a limit on what we could afford to offer. And it's not like he's at Sampandoria or something and will be tripling or quadrupling his wage, he's at a CL club already he's on top tier money.


19.) 17 Jan 2018 15:38:40
Definately Ed001 we should buy players commited to the team and not seeing us as a stepping stone if we want to win silverware. I hope if we finally get Alisson to be the commited kind but unfortunately our recent South American stars left a bitter taste. Maybe that's why Klopp prefers Africans.


20.) 17 Jan 2018 20:12:49
Is Alisson not PSG bound? I know it looked like Donnarumma was PSG’s first choice but I thought they had moved on? If they are genuinely interested then I don’t think we have any chance to compete unfortunately. I would take Trapp off PSG though.


21.) 17 Jan 2018 22:38:59
How is Alissons english? Need someone vocal back there.


 

 

09 Jan 2018 17:58:31
Eds do we still hold an interest in Max Meyer as a Coutinho replacement?

{Ed002's Note - Right now Liverpool are able to seek discussions with him and haven't. Spurs remain keen and Schalke will make him a good offer.}


1.) 09 Jan 2018 18:50:39
Thanks Ed002.I remember Klopp being very keen on him and Brandt last year but it seems we moved on but I certainly wouldn't mind seeing him in red. At just 22 he will be able to develop nicely and i believe he wouldn't cost us the world.


2.) 09 Jan 2018 22:46:42
What not just offer him a contract, play him for abit. if he's good great. if he's not sell him for 40 million to someone else. isn't that how football works thesedays? win win.


 

 

08 Jan 2018 15:50:20
Eds any substance in the Strootman rumours?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of any interest being shown by Liverpool and I only hear rumours here, but Roma are looking to raise funds and have a number of players they will listen to offers for - and certainly Strootman is one. He has kept fit for the past couple of years after a tough time. So we will see. Roma has a couple of targets but they can do little until they have funds in hand and after flying close to serious FFP problems in the past couple of years need to be careful They have a prized asset they want to keep and have others like Strootman who could be a source of funding. For me, I would see it as an unusual option for Liverpool at this time of the year.}


1.) 08 Jan 2018 16:11:48
Who's the prized asset?

Finding it difficult looking at their squad who that would be.

{Ed002's Note - Lorenzo Pellegrini.}


2.) 08 Jan 2018 16:30:14
Now this would be interesting, a double deal for Strootman and Allison! Migs going the other way permanently and a loan deal for a young midfielder.

Oh wait, its not FIFA!

Would be good though!

{Ed002's Note - Alisson is not one of the players they are looking to sell in January as has been made clear to the club who enquired.}


3.) 08 Jan 2018 17:00:29
Thanks Ed002 for making the situation crystal clear as always.


4.) 08 Jan 2018 17:26:23
What rumours Tasos?


5.) 08 Jan 2018 17:34:21
There's something on twitter from (as far as I can see) an Italian site called Premiumsporthd. it.

From what Ed002 has said above, it is not impossible. However, Strootman would be cup-tied for the CL, and Roma are still in it.


6.) 08 Jan 2018 18:05:59
Cheers Zeddicus. Im not on Twitter mate ao don't see what's on there. Usually all crap according to eds so I don't bother. This sounds trash also. Thanks again.


7.) 08 Jan 2018 19:08:46
ED I k ow it’s ye liverpool page but ...


 

 

06 Aug 2017 13:48:29
Eds is it likely that we 'll make a move for Lucas Mooura now that PSG put him up for sale for 30 million euros?

{Ed002's Note - Lucas Moura is one of the players available to recoup the monies spent elsewhere. Obviously Liverpool has already added yet another predominently right winger and adding Moura would make zero sense. If another winger is to be looked at it really needs to be a dedicated left winger. Roma and Fenerbahce have been encouraged to talk money to PSG after enquiries were made. Interest of Arsenal, Atletico and Manchester United has waned. When asked about Liverpool, PSG responded they have not spoken to Liverpool but perhaps Wagner had. They haven't as far as I know.}


1.) 06 Aug 2017 14:45:26
This one would actually make sense at this price IMO, here's my reasoning.

At the moment our first choice wingers are Mane and Salah, but if one gets injured or needs rotation/ sub, the best backups we have for them are either Coutinho (who ideally we have starting in midfield) or Firmino (already lined up as a starting striker) . I know we have Kent and Woodburn, but we shouldn't need to rely on players that young in a CL game for example.

For arguments sake, if Klopp is thinking Firmino, that would leave our striking department as Sturridge, Origi, Solanke and Ings. it's a deep bench and talented, but again leaves us relying on Sturridges fitness and players behind him not yet proven at the European level.

If we go for Moura however, we have a European proven player challenging for the wide positions, and can leave Coutinho in midfield and Firmino upfront, giving us a strong and really balanced squad that has completion across the entire pitch, and can handle rotation in PL and Europe without weakening the team.

I know we'd have to sell to bring someone in, and personally I'd sell Ings. He needs game time and he's going to really struggle to get it this year, and hopefully we'd get enough for him to recover a decent amount of the cost of Moura.

I hear you point on LW Ed, but Mane can play there, and pretty sure Salah could too.


2.) 06 Aug 2017 16:29:20
Thanks Ed. I asked because he was a long time target and he was mentioned frequently here. If Klop wants to give a chance to the youth (Kent and Woodburn) that is fine. Origi can also play in the wings. But none of them of course are at Mooura's level right now and it will provide healthy competition for Mane and Salah. It is a long season ahead and we need quality and depth on the bench.


3.) 06 Aug 2017 17:56:29
Zimbo, Lucas Moura has been inconsistent in his PSG career and even if we were interested, what then happens to our young players like Ryan Kent esp. with the fact that Cots can also play on the left depending on the opposition? This is the part you are missing in your analysis.


4.) 06 Aug 2017 18:27:10
Good shout zimbo. Totally agree. It's clever how one player can add so much depth to squad. Salah is left footed isn't he? Surely been bought in to play there (lw) this signing would end my worries about depth. It's such a shame for ings, been waiting to see him have a decent run for years but I don't see him in front of origi or solanke. He is someone who still has a lot to offer but I'd swap him for moura all day.


5.) 06 Aug 2017 18:57:24
Hypothetical question - if we get to a CL semi-final and Salah gets injured, would you rather have Moura or Kent in the line-up?

I've already explained why not Firmino and Coutinho as yes, they can play there but i believe our best side is with them starting in midfield and striker. Why force two changes if a winger gets injured, rather than one?


6.) 06 Aug 2017 19:38:12
We'll I'd rather have Kent because I think Moura is a Brazilian Aaron Lennon 😂 but I can see your logic mate.


7.) 06 Aug 2017 19:40:57
I'd be a lot happier to see Kent in there, given a chance and show what he can do.
In football, I find it far more satisfying to have a young academy lad in the team than an expensive import.


8.) 06 Aug 2017 20:11:14
If it was CL semi and Salah was out, in sure couts would start on the left anyway - we have enough depth in the middle with can hendo gini and lallana by then.


9.) 06 Aug 2017 20:22:16
Kent looks well worth a go as cover for Mane and Salah. He's quick, can beat his man, has a few tricks and can cross a ball.


10.) 06 Aug 2017 20:56:35
Is this the same Frankly who thinks our season is over because we haven't signed more than three players?


11.) 06 Aug 2017 20:57:01
thanks for a positive post frankly.


12.) 06 Aug 2017 22:10:42
I do think this season will be a failure, we haven't improved our centre defence, our midfield is still weak and Coutinho is leaving, but there some very small positives, Kent might be one of them. But I stand by the fact that we'll win nothing and finish outside the top 4.


13.) 06 Aug 2017 22:36:10
Fair enough MK! To be honest I don't watch PSG a lot but what I've seen he looked dangerous.

Just for clarity, I too want to see Kent get a real chance this year, as I do Gomez, TAA, Grujic, Solanke and Woodburn. I think it's critical to bring through youngsters, and play them consistently throughout the season. Kent should still have plenty of games to rotate with us being in Europe this year, and even with someone coming in we'd effectively have 4 specialist wingers for 2 positions. no worse competition we currently have in every other position.

Goodmorning Eds and Reds. Can any of the eds give us a brief summary of who Klop is really intetested in now tha Couts is really gone? Martins and Mahrez are wingers and not replacements of Couts. Do we still hold an interest in Draxler and Max Meyer? Thank you for your time.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that anything has changed.}


 

 

02 Sep 2017 14:44:53
Any truth Eds in the 200 million euros that Barcelona claims we have aked for Coutinho or is just excuses to cover their inability in the transfer market?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know but what I do know and have explained is that Liverpool were meeting with Barcelona and there was some negotiation and Liverpool lied about it rather than say nothing. Which again makes them look stupid.}


1.) 02 Sep 2017 15:08:39
It is simple business logic, if you do not want to sell something, price it so high that the other party is not able to meet it. I am not sure how does that make liverpool look stupid.

{Ed002's Note - By putting a price on a player you are making him for sale whilst lying to the fans and saying he is not. It is far from "simple business logic".}


2.) 02 Sep 2017 16:36:45
I obviously don't know the details but if Liverpool put a price on Coutinho pre-Neymar then they were entirely in their rights to change that price after. It's clear Barcelona were put in a tough spot as the prices they were quoted on any replacements skyrocketed once everyone saw the 200m, just as Liverpool would have been stuck if Coutinho had been sold without a replacement lined up.

I mean 35m for Salah then suddenly we were quoted 80m+ for Lemar? Clearly 6 months ago no-one would have dreamt that was sensible.

Sometimes it's better just to say sorry but the market has changed and we're not getting stuck without our best player without a sensibly priced replacement.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, but to turn up to negotiate and up the price each time whilst lying to the fans is unprofessional. Clearly you don't think it is.}


3.) 02 Sep 2017 17:38:19
Ed 02 where you at these meetings or are you just taking the words of Barca's pr machine or then again someone high up in the club is leaking info meeting can take place without"lying", which is a strong word, but keeping your cards close to your chest.

{Ed002's Note - No, I told you each time they happened - but everyone seems to care only what they are tyold on Twitter. The club lied, like it lied to a formal investigation and like it tried to persuade the parents of a child lie.}


4.) 02 Sep 2017 18:12:49
It is unprofessional, Ed and that was not just stupid BUT highly unnecessary. If we weren't selling, we did not need to do all that really. As for the prices, that seems to be the way it is, SG. Had we sold Cou and we wnated say Lanzini, if Lanzini was a 35m pound player, he would have been a 60m player had we gone in for him, Why? Every man and his dog would know that we are flush with cash and would want as much of it as possible. It's crap but that's life in football right now.


5.) 02 Sep 2017 18:33:32
Whoah thems strong words have we wronged you and what's the kids case got to do with Barcelona you seem very bitter towards club and fans.


6.) 02 Sep 2017 19:05:28
I don't think a club is truly obligated to reveal the finer workings and details of ongoing negotiations or plans, for players. But if you are going to release statements to the media or make public declarations, then how is it too much for it to be the truth? Otherwise, just stay mum about it. The truth eventually always comes out anyway. My reading is that Lfc were playing a stalling game to see how Coutinho would react, which player was available for replacement (whether Keita, Lemar or another) and to see how desperate and how far Barcelona would go. Only this explains all that went on in the Coutinho/ Barca scenario.


 

 

30 Aug 2017 21:43:17
Any truth in Roma's Emerson rumours Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know - he would be another for the left back collection.}


1.) 31 Aug 2017 03:53:54
I'll think we'll add Paul Lake and Carlton Palmer to that collection, too.


 

 

28 Aug 2017 09:26:15
Hi Eds thanks for the good work and the info you share with us. If any of the Eds know is Sturridge considered by Klopp a first team player and he is not playing him week in week out to protect him from injuries or is he considered a squad player and if a proposal comes in we may consider selling?

{Ed001's Note - the latter.}


1.) 28 Aug 2017 10:34:36
Just imagine we had him all season fit, he in himself must understand through his injuries an not playing enough games in effect depleting us of a natural goalscorer an weakening the team, he can only b considered an important squad player I still rate him more than origi and ings, but we could b onto something special with solanke, maybe the english diego costa.


 

 

18 Aug 2017 12:19:14
Hi Eds. Couple of .................

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page, this is the Liverpool page. And clearly the finances are something you should not be talking about.}

@TopoftheKop Ali is known to be a Liverpool fun and maybe his plans include playing for us if the opportunity arises. Firmino drops back and he plays up front. Ericksen though is a much better fit to Coutinho's void. Tottenham is not sure to finish top 4 (neither are we) but they see the club's intent with signings like Van Dijk so why not consider they have a better chance of winning silverware with us than Tottenham?
