Hey ed1 I read that you wee waiting for a definite answer on Griezemann
Any news?

Welsh red376

{Ed001's Note - I don't remember saying that regarding Griezmann. I am told we are not going to match the asking price or wage demands for him.}

1.) Decent talent if the price and demands are closed to Lallana i'd have no problem

2.) I'm sure the club will be so pleased to have your approval dezyboy :)

Hey eds have Liverpool activated Cans release clause and is Moreno nearing towards Anfield. Lastly is Borini on the way out.

Welsh red376

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside release clauses, I understand that Liverpool has made an offer for Emre Can. The situation with Moreno is unchanged and Liverpool has not made an acceptable bid. Borini is keen to stay at Liverpool.}

1.) Liverpool met the original asking price and were granted permission to speak to moreno. personal terms have been agreed.seville are now trying to get more money out if Liverpool.a medical is still planned.

{Ed002's Note - Rubbish. Liverpool has not made an acceptable offer.}

2.) Seville have moved the goal posts over the amount and structure.this is not unusual with them.

3.) Its now being reported that Liverpool FC have completed the signature of Emre Can and will be present the deal as complete tomorrow (according to Bild)

4.) Ed, would you say Liverpools offer for can is 'acceptable' as you said earlier forget about the clause?

{Ed002's Note - I believe it is.}



18 May 2014 11:37:06
Hey eds are we interested in shaqirii. Would be great if we did. Also are we looking for strikers to back up SAS. We can expect them to play every game in a 40 game plus season!

Welsh red376

{Ed002's Note - Shaqiri is one of the players Bayern are looking to sell and they are seriously pissed with him right now. Sevilla and Fiorentina have a declared interest with Liverpool, Napoli and Juventus having made tentative enquiries. Bayern are taking an interest in Pogba and are looking to include Shaqiri in a deal - but Shaqiri apparently does not want to go there and Pogba is settled, at least for a week or two.

Borini has returned so perhaps that will be enough. There is a growing feeling that there is interest in Kalou but I have nothing confirmed right now.}

1.) Sorry Ed can't see Liverpool being at all interested in Kalou. He is a squad player at best and Liverpool are looking for more quality and possible starters.

2.) Sorry eds meant to say we can't expect them to play every game in a 40 game plus season!



04 Jan 2014 11:59:55
Hi eds you mentioned that it would be unlikely for rakitic to come in unless a midfielder was leaving implying that we have too many midfielders. But for a team that plays 3 midfielders, 4 hardly covers depth so wouldn't rakitic or the like be considered as a reinforcement than a replacement?

Welsh red376

{Ed002's Note - The long term interest in Rakitic is from Lazio where he was expected to move in the summer. Personally I do not see him moving in January but PSG, Chelsea, Manchester United, Lazio and perhaps Liverpool would be interested if he were available at a sensible price.}

1.) Eds appreciate the response but I didn't mean rakitic specifically, I meant any midfielder who comes in Jan to add to our 4 midfielders.

Numero uno edo, have you put up the match review for the game?

Welsh red376

{Ed001's Note - it is on the others page Welsh.}



19 Feb 2017 13:26:44
Hey ed2 how's things, a while back you mentioned that someone in the footballing world regarded 5 players as te superstars of the future, I remember oko and I think Ake being on the list, I just wanted to ask has that list of young high potential stars changed or same? Cheerd.

Welsh red376

{Ed002's Note - In 2013 I was told by someone who knows far better than me that there were four truly exceptional young talents in world football at that time - Chelsea's Nathan Ake, Max Meyer of Schalke, Liverpool's Oluwaseyi Ojo and Martin Benitez of Independiente.}

1.) 19 Feb 2017 15:26:21
Ake is a brilliant player in my eyes and Bournemouth are missing him terribly!

2.) 19 Feb 2017 18:03:01
Ed, wasn't either Loftus-Cheek or Kenedy on the list as well? Both great prospects IMO.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 19 Feb 2017 18:33:51
I would take Ake tomorrow if he was available. The boy is just class.

4.) 19 Feb 2017 19:36:57
Ake is a superb player. Would take him in a heartbeat.

5.) 19 Feb 2017 20:14:31
Ake is class and that's what a good loan helps you.

6.) 19 Feb 2017 20:56:43
I would like to see Max Meyer working with Klopp. He's never quite hit his full potential imo. I think Klopp could bring him on a level.

7.) 20 Feb 2017 15:11:26
Nothing to do with the loan, he was on the list before the loan!

8.) 20 Feb 2017 20:27:29
The loan gave the kid solid PL experience and atm he is miles ahead of Ojo in terms of development. If the kid wasn't playing the list would have changed long ago.



14 Feb 2017 18:37:28
Guys Today is officially Kolo Toure Appreciation day, so just how we showed love for Pirlo sorry Allen let's do it again.

Remember when Kolo bowled the ref over and then acted like it was the refs fault! Kolo!

Welsh red376

1.) 14 Feb 2017 22:30:43
Remember when Kolo Toure and Giacherini (for Sunderland, something like that), collided for a tackle and were embracing each other somewhat, looked at one another then laughed it off. the power of Kolo.

2.) 16 Feb 2017 03:34:16
Kolo was probably the only one to play the game that could make conceding a goal somewhat enjoyable. His reactions were always priceless. Especially if he knew it was his fault. The ground slapping tantrums, you could tell it meant a lot to him.



22 Jan 2017 19:55:13
ED1 what is with the hate on Can? How has he turned from like our young German prodigy to a so called horse, has he really turned that bad?

Welsh red376

{Ed001's Note - he has not been playing well and fans have no patience.}

1.) 22 Jan 2017 21:17:58
Nobody should hate any Liverpool player. Can is a work in progress. I think he can play a big part in the future. Just isn't quite on his game atm

2.) 22 Jan 2017 21:33:35
Around this age/ experience, people were saying similar about coutinho. With time, he developed the consistency to be one of the best. I hope the same for Can. Give him some time

3.) 22 Jan 2017 21:35:16
This season he hasn't done as well as expected but he's still young, needs a bit more time, he can play a big part for us in the future imo, patience is key.

4.) 22 Jan 2017 21:48:58
He needs to play further forward. I remember watching him drive at the back four of United the other week and he was going past their left back in particular like he wasn't there. He also put in a wicked cross to the back post which Wijnaldum headed over the bar. Then you have his goal earlier in the season where he made a late run into the box and headed in, or his stunner against Bournemouth from a pull back to the edge of the area.

Personally, if Klopp wants him in the side for Mane, I'd prefer him playing on the right of the front 3 so we can keep Lallana in midfield were his creativity is critical. Can seems to be better when he is in the final third and has no time to over think his pass. He clearly lacks discipline, but he does have good vision for a killer pass. Who could forget that chop inside and outside of the foot pass in behind to assist Sturridge last season! With his height and running power he is also a goal threat. Send him further up and see how he links with Coutinho and Firmino I say. Because in midfield he is a liability, but he clearly has quality.

5.) 22 Jan 2017 22:24:53
I've always lauded Can but recently he's frustrated the hell out of me. He slows the game down and his passing has beeen either sideways, backwards or completely wayward. Plus him being there means Lallana is pushed further forward where he has no space to use his skill. He's a good player but at the moment should be used from the bench and hopefully one day he can improve enough to command a starting slot.

6.) 22 Jan 2017 22:54:51
Spot on, guys! Moreover, you should pop over to the This Is Anfield site where there is a full article, which is a proper hit job and pathetic scapegoating of Can as the reason for all our issues including as if he`s the reason why we show no commitment, desire or fight in games vs lesser teams and why dropping or selling him would suddenly make Klavan and Lovren stop making silly mistakes. We are literally feeding on our own right now. Good grief!

7.) 22 Jan 2017 22:25:25
I agree he has all the attributes to be a good player just not the consistency and awareness arm. Hope we stick with him in the long run as I think he'll turn good but he certainly needs dropping on current form.

8.) 23 Jan 2017 00:47:59
I understand that you once said young players come with frustrations, but I have to admit, i'm getting a lot more frustrated these past few games. I still have high hopes on him though. Time will tell.

9.) 23 Jan 2017 10:05:54
There is no hate on Can. He is a bang avergar plaher prople now accepting it. Except ". He is young. " He has had nothing to show lately and people are frustrated coz he has pushed Lallana out wide.

10.) 23 Jan 2017 10:24:00
He has not pushed Lallana outwide the manger has . Maybe don't see no other options. He tryed Sturridge there he did not understand the role . He may not see Ojo being ready and he does not see Origi as a wide player

11.) 23 Jan 2017 10:57:07
No one hates can, he's got a lot of criticism because he's avoided it for so long. He made the same mistakes and errors last season but got away with a lot of stick, the first thing Henderson does wrong and he is the worst player on the team apparently. People are delusional about cans ability, he is a decent player, has got good attributes but is missing the most important part of a central midfielder and that is a footballing brain. I don't think it has anything to do with patience either, we hold mignolet and Moreno etc responsible for their mistakes so why shouldn't we hold Can responsible for his who has been here just as long a moreno. He doesn't offer enough going forward and doesn't offer enough going back, and in my view he's a poorer version of Henderson without the reading of the game. If you want to wait to see IF Can will get it right and sacrifice the teams performances on occasions then so be it, we won't be winning much any time soon. We need a better first team midfielder than wijnaldum and can, this is reality. We can say, let's be patient and wait, then when we've finally realised, they are the weak links, and the rest of the squad has either aged or moved on, we will be kicking ourselves when we had the chance to achieve great things. I'm not saying get rid of wiji or can, wiji should be a rotation player, because hendo lallana and wiji has worked more often than not especially going forward, but can still has to learn his trade properly and should be doing that off the bench. We need a better midfielder for the long term, someone that will improve the first 11. If you disagree and think the likes of Stewart, grujic and Can will fix things, it's time to get the rose tinted glasses off.

12.) 23 Jan 2017 12:16:41
I don't hate Can, he gives 100% every game, but he doesn't have the quality IMO. He's a tough physical specimen, but he hasn't got the ball control or the skill to take us to the next level. Consequently, when we're looking to open a team up through slick pass and move, Can slows the momentum.
It's no coincidence since he's come back in we have scored fewer and looked less threatening. I'm sorry if that perceived as making him a scapegoat, it's just the way I see it.

{Ed001's Note - the problem is that he gets carried away when he does something right and tries to do too much. He simply is not good enough to do any of the things he tries to do, yet.}

13.) 23 Jan 2017 12:23:33
Can for me operates better in a 4 man midfield. I don't think he and Gigi link up well together, neither is a leader ad look indecisiveness to who should be going into the space or moving towards an opposition play with the ball. With a DM in there simply to break up opposition play and take the defensive pressure off, I think Can could flourish, when he gets time on the ball to run forward and pick a pass he looks very dangerous.
Henderson got a lot of the same sort of criticism when he first joined LFC and it's taken him 5 years to be held in decent regard and still not by all fans, add into that he's only played midfield really for LFC for about a year, as Bodgers played him centreback and right back, and Germany have been using him as a utility player. He needs a little more time in his role, and more help from the centremids. I really don't think it's helping that we have a young centremid who's playing with a centremid that's played a 10 most of his life in Gigi, who won't fully understand the role himself.

14.) 23 Jan 2017 13:10:05
Milner needs to play there.

15.) 23 Jan 2017 13:26:00
Can is a good player and has the potential to become a very good player. At the moment he is not distributing the ball quick enough. He has to learn to understand what's around him before he receives the ball. Top players see the picture of where the players are before they get the ball, therefore rarely think of where to pass once they get the ball, that decision has already been made. Can receives the ball controls and then looks around for someone to pass to, in that time he is closed down and then more often than not has to pass back or loses the ball.

Hopefully he can speed his game up to match our style of play


16.) 23 Jan 2017 14:17:31
Weren't people on here accusing Lallana of slowing our movement down last season? Too many Cruyff turns etc. We'll look at him now! (Or at least look at his performances when used in midfield this season)
Let's all have a bit more faith in the manager. He has turned a few of our players careers round so let's see what he can do with Can. He is still young, has great physical attributes, so let's see what Klopp can do with him instead of jumpingvon his back for every misplaced pass. He is a Liverpool player and we should be 100% behind him.

17.) 23 Jan 2017 14:55:14
Can is not a winger to play anywhere in front three. He is a luxury pkayer currently with no place in the starting eleven and Klopp is struggling hard to fit him somehow. Can is not the reason we lost to Swansea but certainly culprit of not showing enough going forward. He is a misfit.

18.) 23 Jan 2017 15:00:06
People seem to forget that in the beginning of the season, Can never played with Wij or Hendo. It was always, Hendo with Can or Wij (never both) ahead of him and Lallana ahead of them and we were killing teams. Then, Lallana got injured, then did Wij, then Couts, then Mane left. Klopp tried to make things work with what he had. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it did not. If Mane was here, Lallana would be in CM and no one would care.

Now Can has to play there with Lallana out wide cos Studge nor Firmino are effective there. Klopp is really trying and so is Can who I agree has not been good lately os he plays better alongside Hendo and Lallana but did have a good game vs Utd. Origi would be my choice outwide to Allow Lallana to be in CM where he creates havoc. But the Can slating needs to stop. After all, he doesn't pick himself and Klopp is trying to make do with a situation he has no control over, right now.

19.) 23 Jan 2017 14:32:06
Maybe MK has a point, give him a run on the wing and see how he does. If Klopp doesn't fancy Ono yet then try Can. It would also allow Lallana back into the middle where he is way more effective.

20.) 23 Jan 2017 15:27:32
You're right about Lallana last season GMac but everyone always knew Lallana had great technique and buckets of ability. He was just not making the right decisions.
I don't see the same technical ability in Can, it's not just his decision making, it's a lack of quality.

21.) 23 Jan 2017 16:34:12
You guys tears are welling up in my eyes at this beautiful thread, can't they all be as constructive and reasonable as this?

22.) 24 Jan 2017 03:30:23
my take on emre can is this, at the moment he is out of form so he needs taking out of the team, it really is that simple, take him out of the firing line and allow him to build up his form in the reserves.



05 Dec 2016 20:18:54
Don't know if this has been mentioned but has Manedona picked up a injury? He looked to pull something and I really don't want to take him out of my fantasy team.

I think he was taken off as a precaution and should be fine for the match against West Ham.

So eds does this mean he is given a list of players and he chooses from there or he gives the list to whoever and then they choose? Thanks eds and on a side note what are your predictions for the England-Italy game? Others feel free to post predictions as well! I say 3-1 Italia!

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that. We have been through all of this before but responsibility rests with Ian Ayre, Dave Fallows, Brendan Rodgers, Barry Hunter and Michael Edwards. I predict 85'F and 87% humidity for the England game.}

Was he ever angry at Liverpool? I remember he was quite emotional when scoring for QPR against us, he seemed really ticked off.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure he was angry at times. He was brought in by a manager who had left before he arrived and Rafa was not sure of him. He had off field issues as well, personal stuff going on that affected him at times. He always seemed a very emotional guy to me.}
