Hello Ed002, it's been a while. I hope you are doing well. I listened to the Liverpool related Sharkopod, but it has been a while since then and I was wondering if you can maybe do another one the players LFC are looking at? If a pod is too much of trouble now, I and others would be pretty thrilled to hear about them on a post.

Thanks!

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I will be doing some further Sharkopods soon. Keep in mind that there was also the Klopp interview in one of the Final Day Shapkods as well p may get himback in to do another.}

Liverpool have a representative at the Atletico Paranaense international U17 tournament in which Paranaense U17 team along with U17 teams of Uruguay, Orlando City and India are participating.

Clubs have scouts everywhere. Nothing new.

I know club scouts many tournaments, not necessarily with an intent to buy immediately.

I will make sure I won't post again if I hear something.

Hello Ed002, it's been a while. I hope you are doing well.

Seeing as you are around, I was wondering if you know of any Liverpool interest in Schalke's Sead Kolasinic? I remember there was some talk of the player last summer, but I think you mentioned that the player said he has no interest in a move to Liverpool. Seeing as he is out of contract in the summer, are you aware of any attempts from Liverpool to perhaps get the player on a pre-contract?

Additionally, with Sakho and Ilori expected to leave this January, and the likes of Lloyd Jones Maguire, Randall and perhaps Lucas all expected to leave in the summer, and with young Joe Gomez still being carefully introduced back into first team training following his injury, do you know of any centre backs Liverpool are keeping an eye out for?

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I am doing fine thanks. Previously of interest to Manchester United and Spurs, Roma, West Brom and Manchester City enquired after Schalke's Sead Kolasinac in the summer but the enquiries went nowhere. Wolfsburg, Chelsea and Liverpool also had watched toward the end of last season. West Ham and RBL have had him watched this season. Wolfsburg remain unclear on the future of Ricardo Rodriguez still and may turn again to the player if Schalke cannot agree and extension.

None of the centre backs you mention are part of the plans right now so I would expect Klopp to stick with what he has - which is four first team picks including Gomez and discounting Sakho. If he looks to another then they will be taking the position of someone who is not a likely starter at the club. If he brings in a potential first team starter then it would be the end for Gomez.}


1.) 06 Nov 2016 13:35:51
If say, Sule came in and Sakho and Klavan left in d summer leaving us with Matip, Sule, Lovren and Gomez as our 1st choice centre halfs do you still think it would spell the end of Gomez?


2.) 07 Nov 2016 10:48:26
Has anyone watched much of Süle?
I've seen a few matches and I'm not impressed.
Could someone please answer - what does he offer that Gomez doesn't?


3.) 07 Nov 2016 13:03:59
Whats wrong with having both of them?, could be one of the top partnerships in Europe in a few years.


4.) 07 Nov 2016 12:36:05
Ron, Sule is a Left sided centre back so he wouldn't be challenging Gomez for the position as Gomez would play on the right side. Sule is absolutely huge, his aerial ability is something that we need in our side. He's a real footballer too, his passing is incisive and penetrates the oppositions midfield line. He's also a great tackler and he reads the game very well which masks his one weakness his pace. I'd rather Van Dijk but I'd also be delighted with Sule.

Saw Sule play at the Olympics and he is a beast of a player, with very good aerial, passing, tackling and technical ability. Not saying he will sign but he's worth a shout and a much better upgrade than Van Dyke, who only looks like a good CB but when you watch him play, he's not much to write home about.

Serbian media are reporting that LFC representatives met with Marko Grujic yesterday. Do you know anything about this Ed002?

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I think it extremely unlikely that Liverpool has been given permission to talk to the player.

Red Star Belgrade DM Marko Grujic's move to either Chelsea or Inter was scheduled to happen in January, but it is now unlikely that he will move before the summer. There is also interest from Napoli, Hamburg,Wolfsburg, PSG, Manchester United, Everton, Manchester City and Roma but both Inter and Chelsea looking to an early deal - Chelsea have already held discussions with Red Star and have made an offer that was not deemed acceptable. Inter have now also held discussions but would need to better the offer from Chelsea - which might be problematic for them in the short term as there focus is elsewhere and money is an issue. The club and the player will look to hold out until the summer for his preferred move to Italy if necessary - but I understand he is coming around to the idea of a move to London. Chelsea would be willing to leave him in Belgrade if they could do a deal in January but this is probably one for the summer.}


1.) 07 Dec 2015 20:52:25
A certain Mr Joyce from the E####ss has reported our interest Ed. Nothing in it then as far as your concerned. You'll do for me mate.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation as I understand it to be - if he is saying Liverpool has been tapping up the player you need to ask him about it and not me.}


2.) 07 Dec 2015 22:40:42
I Like the look of hkm. Looks big and strong, would look better in our midfield and coud even add tk someone like allens game.

{Ed002's Note - He would be a replacement for Lucas if Liverpool are interested.}


3.) 07 Dec 2015 22:50:56
Which is long overdue for the simple fact of Lucas growing age, I wouldn't want Lucas to leave but to have a apprentice for him ready made for the day we need him, the boy is only 19 even 2/3 years half starting and he will still only be 22 and hopefully fit to take over from Lucas.

Could you provide us with any news regarding this player ed in the coming weeks about wether you can confirm our interest?

Thanks for the reply.

What do you think of the player btw? Is he highly thought of?

If we bought a cm, why would he replace Lucas when Allen is not as good? Lucas isn't exactly ancient guys.


6.) 08 Dec 2015 12:41:53
Thanks for the reply Ed002.

Grujic is a DM, and hence Ed002's reference to him potentially be a replacement for Lucas if he arrived.


7.) 08 Dec 2015 14:58:58
The player himself has said he was given permission to speak to Liverpool by his club.

Hello Ed002. I asked this on the European pages, but didn't see a reply there, so I thought I would ask here.

Is there any interest in Shakhtar's Alex Teixeira from Liverpool? I have asked about him in the past and you mentioned that Juventus were interested in him, and recently he has been linked to Chelsea.

I think he is an excellent player, and can play anywhere in midfield from central midfield to attacking midfield or as a winger. I remember him playing as a winger in his younger years with Brazil, and has now stepped up. IMO, he is a similar sort of player to Willian and Douglas Costa, but has more to his game than either of them.

Any response would be great, and thanks in advance.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - There is indeed interest in him from elsewhere, but none from Liverpool.}


1.) 30 Oct 2015 12:36:59
Thanks Ed002.


2.) 30 Oct 2015 18:03:40
From what I've seen of Douglas Costa, if he's anywhere near that level he's got talent.

After a poor start to the season, the U23s have now certainly found their feet. They lost their first two matches of the season by 4-1 margins against Southampton and Chelsea, but won their next 3: 3-1 against Arsenal, 4-0 against Leicester and 6-2 against Spurs yesterday.

I don't want to hype the kid up, but Ben Woodburn has had an excellent start to the season with 4 goals and 4 assists in 5 games while Harry Wilson has 3 goals and 3 assists. Woodburn starts left and Wilson right wing in a very similar formation to the senior team with Toni Gomes up top (Ings started couple of games too though for fitness reasons) .

Players like Ilori, Stewart, Williams, Brannagan and even Ings have been getting plenty of game time here though Ings has missed the last two matches and will likely start from the bench against Derby. Ejaria is back from injury as is Chirivella and young Grabara, Virtue, Toni Gomes, Brewitt and Whelan have all stepped up to the U23 level permanently by the looks of it.

3.) 20 Sep 2016 10:45:58
Im hoping Klopp can accommodate both Ings and Origi in the starting 11 tonight.
Great to see the U23's doing well.


4.) 20 Sep 2016 11:11:22
It will serve them well soon.


5.) 20 Sep 2016 11:28:14
Tbh . Chelsea have a good u23s team. I'm looking forward to seeing Harry Wilson play for the main team hope he makes it.


6.) 20 Sep 2016 16:32:25
Thanks, AG. We have talent in the reserves and hopefully, they will make the grade gradually.


 

 

21 Jul 2016 04:56:07
Ejaria, Randall, Klavan, Gomez, Sakho, George are all in the squad to play in the US, and I will be there on the 27th at Pasadena to watch LFC live for the first time in over 4 years!

3.) 14 Jun 2016 06:32:52
I agree, good luck Tex. Its unfortunate that it didn't work out for him. I hope he has a good career and maybe one day he will get the chance to play against Liverpool.

Good luck to Tex and hope he comes good and has a decent career.

Hello Ed002, I was wondering if I could pick your brain on an issue that is prevalent in football these days.

In the not so recent past, Neymar came out with the very public statement Coutinho is good enough to play for Barcelona and that he would like to play alongside him. Last week, Dani Alves came out with another public statement urging Coutinho to move to Barcelona and that he has the quality to play for them. And now, Felipe Luis has come out with a statement that he discussed that Coutinho is good enough for the top CL sides and that he is welcome at Atletico Madrid.

I understand that players talk about these things in private (for example, Coutinho telling Willian and Neymar that he will leave Liverpool if we didn't get CL football), but with these statements now being made public by the players, would that not p1ss off Liverpool? I know Liverpool are not exactly the most respecting of sides to other clubs (Gerrard's statement on Suarez being better than Arsenal, Emre Can recently saying how Gotze will do well at Liverpool come to mind), but would this cause peoples within Liverpool to react, perhaps by contacting the clubs where these players play (Barcelona, Atletico)?

Finally, are the comments of these players being directed by the clubs themselves? I understand Real and Barcelona in particular like to get into the heads of a potential new signing by making these comments via their current players.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - It was last year that this was said by Neymar - which was some time ago. But it will be the player himself that is feeding this. We knew last year (and I explained tehn) what had happened.}}


1.) 10 Jun 2016 12:45:10
Does it really matter? I'm sure what they said publically has already been said to him in private. I'm sure simeone doesn't go out and buy players based on Felipe Luis.


2.) 10 Jun 2016 16:25:42
I wouldn't be too concerned about it. If Coutinho goes to Barcelona then he'd be back up to Neymar on the left side. And if he is played on the right then he'd be backup to Messi. Good luck to replacing those two if he thinks he's better. Even in the Brazil setup he is 3rd choice for that left attack slot. Behind Neymar and Douglas Costa. The only reason he is playing (and playing extremely well) is because Neymar is not in the squad and Douglas Costa is injured. The Barcelona talk is probably noise to set the wheels going so that he can end up somewhere else. Like for example, PSG.


3.) 10 Jun 2016 17:11:13
Ra if he went to Barcelona he'd be a long term replacement for Iniesta in midfield. Busquets holding with Coutinho and Rakitic either side is a frightening prospect.


4.) 10 Jun 2016 19:16:45
I'm certain players are used to tap up thier international team mates by their clubs. Or their ex team mates.

I remember Gerrard claiming to the press that Joe Cole was the English Messi just before he signed for us on a free - no bloody way he actually thought that unless he was on the charm offensive as directed by LFC. Gary Mac was used to try and tap up Robbie Keane under Houlier too. It's naive to think it doesn't happen.

I think it best Gomez stays and builds up his fitness with the U23s. Randall is simply not good enough and now is what 4th choice RB. It makes no sense to loan out Klavan at all.

Whether Nicole or Hansen came from lower leagues means nothing in present day football due to better scouting and youth academies, most of the good young players will be picked up by the bigger clubs at a young age.

Even the top Asian leagues (Japanese, K-League or the A League) are nowhere near close to the Championship, technically or tactically. There is a lot of money there though. It is also mildly amusing that Leeky has got another thing wrong; there is no Adriano who plays for Suwon Bluewings; he plays for Fc Seoul, and is a 28 year old journeyman who has never played for Brazil at any levels.

As a backup, would Schmeichel be a better choice than Mignolet?

Karius will likely be number 1 next season, and I think it a priority to bring in a solid 2nd choice who can do a job when called upon, so I would let Mignolet go.

Klavan is an okay player, but we need an improvement there IMO and I would let Klavan go and bring in a CB to partner Matip with Lovren and Gomez as back-ups.

Moreno has really shown no improvements and I think it foolhardy to wait for him to reach a level he may never reach, so I would let him go and bring in a first choice LB. TAA will be the competition for Clyne and I see no reason to replace Clyne.

In midfield, we need to have better quality, and more competent squad players who can really push the starters. Emre Can, Lucas and Stewart I would let go, thus leaving Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Grujic and Ejaria. I think we need to bring in a defensive midfielder who can slot in when needed and push Henderson forward if required.

Sturridge will leave in the summer IMO, and Ings is coming back from multiple serious injuries. A striker is needed and again pace maybe something we can look in a potential new striker.

We have seen what pace can do to compliment our pressing style up top with Mane, so this is where the focus should be IMO. Brandt is a wide player, but not particularly quick, but he is a good dribbler and a clever player; I would bring him in as the wide player in addition to Coutinho, Mane, Woodburn and Ojo.

One thing I want to say is that there are one too many idealistic posts here calling for the likes of Mariano, Tymon as well as calling for the likes of Ojo and Ejaria to step and fill int he gaps left by senior players. It might be that they can fill those gaps, but recent history has shown as that waiting on young players to come good is a patient process for which we cannot afford. Give the young players the time to develop through cameos and in cups and with training with the first team, but if we bring in a GK, LB, CB, CM, LW and a ST, it needs to be players ready to step in and perform straight away or we will be here in 2 years time, saying the same thing again, as we have been for a very long time.

I agree with Kman; the midfield is not as good as we think it is (and I don't include Coutinho or Mane as midfielders here) . I particularly agree with him that we cannot just wait and hope that Ejaria or Chirivella will be ready to play regularly for Liverpool in the future. We have already seen with Emre Can having made no real progress in the 2 and half years he has been here and if we don't act in the summer and bring in players who are ready to take the next step (like Kante at Chelsea, Wanyama at Spurs), we are going to go through the same cycle we always seem to every 2 years.

Juanma is not ready; he has missed a lot of games through injury and is currently once again out injured. I don't get where he is ready from?

He has only played 5 games for the U23s this season, and only 2 of them were starts. He is nowhere near ready.
