Square Tomato, any news on the Gomez staying/ loan rumours?
Appreciated as always mate.

1.) 17 Jun 2017 09:07:47
He's come out and said himself that he is staying as he has been assured he will feature this season.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 10:52:38
nothing's changed as far as I know he's not going on loan and like I said before klopp wants him to push lovren and he's ahead of Klavan, Newcastle want him on loan as do Bournemouth but that would be a bad idea, Huddersfield would be the best option because of someone at the club already, all that being said I can't see him going anywhere I still expect clyne to leave though personally.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 11:23:47
Square. Cheers buddy
Always appreciated.

4.) 17 Jun 2017 11:45:20
Cheers ST. Hope you're right.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 12:34:22
Evidently Gomez pulled out of the England U21 squad to preserve his fitness as this pre season is so important to him.

6.) 17 Jun 2017 12:52:13
So st u wait until the news about gomez has already been released n then choose 2 tell us? 🤔🤔🤔.

{Ed001's Note - he had told us this months ago, why should he repeat himself because most of you only read the crap in tabloids?}

7.) 17 Jun 2017 13:23:09
Good grief Hardy, keep up!

8.) 17 Jun 2017 13:27:59
He said that long ago mate.

9.) 17 Jun 2017 13:52:17
Thanks for the info ST. Hope he gets some game time next season.

10.) 17 Jun 2017 13:58:58
And he only said because he was asked! ST is one of the more respectable honest posters on here and people like you just want to have a dig. Give the guy a break Hardy.

11.) 17 Jun 2017 14:43:08
Thanks for the back up guys lol.

12.) 17 Jun 2017 14:45:21
Must of missed that, my bad! Apologies.

13.) 17 Jun 2017 15:00:50
Don't rest on your Laurels, Hardy 😉.

14.) 17 Jun 2017 15:38:44
That's another fine mess, Hardy.

15.) 17 Jun 2017 16:18:25
I'm often on here arguing that Clyne is a decent player for liverpool. That being said, I would welcome any improvement in the position. I think we need to be careful on who we sign before shipping Clyne out. Say what you like about him at least he has some premier league pedigree. I think there are other priorities.

16.) 17 Jun 2017 19:51:48
Must have missed your last update so many thanks Square.



08 Apr 2015 18:48:24
Ed01, don't suppose you have any info on what Garbutt is likely doing this summer? Don't know if he signed a new deal or not,
Cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - he has an offer on the table from Everton, he knows there is interest from Liverpool and Spurs, probably others too. I know West Ham were keen on him before they signed Cresswell and Southampton enquired before signing Bertrand, I would think both would take him if they could.

As for what he is likely to do, I have no idea, it is a personal choice he has to make, which is impossible to be sure. You can speak to them one day and they are all hyped about one club, then a week later they have had a better offer and change their mind.}



06 Feb 2014 08:13:58
I very much hope the echo is mistaken.
Liverpool planning to use Borini as a makeweight for A.Johnson?
Please dear lord no.
And wouldn't we expect Borinis transfer fee to be higher than that of Johnson? This is Johnson's first decent run of form since he moved.
Add into the mix than Borini is a lot younger and highly rated in Italy, this seems like terrible journalism.

Ed001 or Ed02 please tell me it's tosh?

{Ed001's Note - not aware of any current Liverpool interest.}

1.) The Echo rumour mill, not the Echo themselves. People keep making this mistake!



25 Mar 2013 15:51:42
Hey Eds, I was wondering if Juventus's interest in Podolski was real? And if this would have any impact on their interest in Suarez?

Thanks! {Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any confirmed interest in Podolski.}

1.) Suarez going nowhere



01 Mar 2013 13:06:43
Question for Ed002 if he's around,
If Bayern or Juventus were to bag Lewandowski, do you think that would affect their intrest in Suarez?
Thanks {Ed002's Note - Neither has an interest in Lewandowski.}

1.) Bayern most certainly do have an interest in Lewandowski. In fact it's his most likely destination. {Ed002's Note - Or not as the case may be. Bayern Munich has a number of "targets" identified with their new manager - he isn't one of them.}

2.) 01 Mar 2013 17:43:48
Ah that's a shame Ed!
Thanks for your help!

3.) Hi Ed002, thanks for the info.

Apart from United - do you know of any interest from elsewhere in Lewandowski? Would you see United as a likely destination or somewhere else?


HBadger {Ed002's Note - Lewandowski was considered in the past year by Liverpool, PSG, Real Madrid, Rubin Kazan, Manchester United, Spartak Moscow (who were concerned about losing Welliton), Juventus (although they now have Llorente), Arsenal and Lille.}

If you know me, I like kova kova kovacic, enough of this Naby Keita ding dong and Harry Scousser will agree,
What do you say, home fans?

1.) 23 Jul 2017 14:32:02
four disagrees? some people not been here long enough to get the joke lol.

2.) 23 Jul 2017 14:35:52
Keita is the most dynamic midfield player in Europe . He's a dual cm . Can do the Kante stuff but he's equally as good in the offensive end . He's a huge talent . Would suit us perfectly . The intensive side of the game . Goals assists and breaking things up . The most no brainer target I've ever known .

3.) 23 Jul 2017 18:24:23
Shame we're not going to get him. Need to move on and find someone with a similar style of play and ability, there must be a player as good as him out there.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 12:31:07
Echo, from what you say you sound like you know quite a bit about Keita? Is this just from YouTube clips or have you ever actually seen him play?



06 Jul 2017 18:32:24
Everton fans have complained about signing s**t players nobodies ever heard of.
By targeting Giroud and Rooney, they are combatting this by signing s**t players everyone's heard of.
Sorry Ed025, couldn't resist. :)

{Ed025's Note - very harsh dave.. :)

1.) 06 Jul 2017 19:05:28
I rate Giroud if I'm honest. In the 18 yard box he is as big a threat as anyone else in the league. His hold up play is top notch, his link up play is also under rated, and he has multiple strings to his bow.

Let's not forget that this guy keeps out some great players for France and has one of the best minutes per goal ratios in Europe. Lacazette who has just replaced him at club level can't get near the national team. I think Arsenal are a bit guilty of "the grass is greener" here. I think Lacazette is great, but I don't think he is as good as Giroud. He gets my vote every time I am asked for the most under rated player in the league. He'd be a top class replacement for Lukaku and in an Everton team built around him I'd back him to score 20-25 goals next season.

Rooney on the other hand is an over paid, over rated potato. He should've moved to China where the humidity might have helped him lose some weight!

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with much of that MK..

2.) 06 Jul 2017 19:25:05
Ed25, I feel for you right now. The players you have signed may improve you in the long run and tht may be true BUT right now, I would not want any of them at LFC as none of them are better than the ones we already have and yes, Origi is better than Rooney right now as we speak. Here's to hoping.

{Ed025's Note - dont worry about us brussels we will be fine, i suspect koeman and walsh may know just a tad more than you about player recruitment mate so i will side with them if you dont mind.. :)

3.) 06 Jul 2017 19:26:29
Rooney is crap, Giroud is Ok! Ll assent will surprise a few and I don't think they are done! Are they! First real push in the window under the new owners, it's a solid start! You are not going to get Messi and Ronaldo with last 15 years of No success history!

{Ed025's Note - you worry about liverpool IYKM and not the champions elect.. :)

4.) 06 Jul 2017 20:35:18
In all honesty without looking through shankly red tinted glasses, koeman has his own style of play and obviously see's the players he gets fitting into his system. That aside I genuinely think Everton will be there or there about the top 4 this season. New signings aside I think bolasie will be good as well.

5.) 07 Jul 2017 03:05:57
The Lacazette / Giroud situation is an interesting conundrum. Giroud keeps Laca out of the french national side, yet Wenger pays through the nose to replace the former with the latter.

6.) 06 Jul 2017 21:01:05
holy rubbish ed! champions elect? you win the joke off we were going to have!

{Ed025's Note - if leicester can do it waqas then why not us?.. :)



19 Jun 2017 15:41:23
If we were actually willing (and that's a big if) to pay VVD £200,000 a week, it seems wages won't be a stumbling block this summer.
Whether the club wants to pay it or not is another matter, I suppose with the new to deal and potential champions league, income has risen by a fair bit, although it would be presumptuous to buy assuming we'll qualify.



19 Jun 2017 09:17:55
I think Klopps 'won't go back in for Dortmund players' is an agreement that doesn't count when the player is want away.

Dortmund don't want Klopp enticing (and probably tapping up) their players but if they know a player will be moving on, our money is as green as everyone else's.

Having said that, I'll eat my sock if we sign Aubamayang.

1.) 19 Jun 2017 09:49:58
They would be happy to offload him to England and wouldn't give a toss about Klopp or his promises. You are taking about serious money and why wouldn't they consider it for a player who has decided to move on. I don't know who is talking this BS ( Klopp won't sign his ex players ) on this page. The man tapped up two players in two years!

2.) 19 Jun 2017 11:14:03
Rhst clause with Dortmund was probably put in place because they knew only so well of Klopp's sneaky ways.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 15:51:57
Harry, the person talking that "BS" is Klopp himself so you can take up the issue with him. Alos, I don't want Auba here cos he wanted to go to PSG as he was offerred insane wages hence, he is just looking for a big pay day. Now that the deal went to crap, his agents are now sounding off LFC as a likely destination due to the Klopp link. Anyone with a brain can figure that out. We will not ;pay the money nor his insane wages so moral of the story? Not happening and I am more than cool with that.



05 Jun 2017 11:48:12
I think just a winger, a right and left full back and a forward would probably do me.

I love sturridge as a player, but 20 games a season isn't good enough, yes he can produce moments of magic but hopefully, his replacement will be able to do something similar over a whole season.

If Clyne isn't willing to stay as 2nd choice then he can leave, I'm not crazy about him staying either way because even keeping him as back up stunts TAAs growth, however if our new signing gets injured TAA becomes first choice and that could be tough on him, so that's debatable.

I think Milner will probably leave, with our looking for a central midfielder and a left back, doesn't really leave a space for him. He joined us to be first choice, he won't be next season.

I don't think we need widespread changes at all. Mignolets form was much improved, and Klopp might start us with Karius next season anyway.

Having another forward to push Firmino is a must, Origi is good but not at his level. Whenever Sturridge is injured, Firmino is unchallenged.

Hendo, Lallana Can, Wijnaldum, Grujic, Coutinho, and the new addition should see us alright in midfield, if not a bit heavy. Even if Hendo has fitness issues still we should be covered.

I do like the look of Salah, he's got pace and intelligence. Looks like he will fit nicely and it's good to see us targeting a player who looks like he'll fit, fancy than a player who we can mould.

If VVD comes in, I'd expect Klavan to leave, if he doesn't I don't see much hope for Gomez unfortunately. If he doesn't, we are ok at CB in numbers if not quality.

1.) 05 Jun 2017 12:05:29
Left wing/ forward and a left back for me. Crucial we bring in real quality in these two positions.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 12:16:54
I would add a midfielder and CB into the list. Absolutely not convinced about Lovren and klavan. You just can't outscore every teams. I expect both Lucas and Stewart to go and Henderson to miss as many as half of the season, So a top drawer CM is a must.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 14:34:58
Dave, I have a suspicion that we will sign a LB and make Milner our first choice RB, with TAA in the wings. We will sell Clyne, if not this window then in one of the next couple, to give TAA a clear run at taking that first choice spot from Milner.

I'm not ITK at all, just trying to apply logic especially if the Salah and VVD signings are confirmed as I don't think we will have the money to do RB too.

Salah, VVD, first choice LB and a 'compete for first choice' CM (as I fear for Hendo's LT future and would love to believe the Keita rumours) and we're ready for a good tilt next season.

Would be great to get the business done early and crack on with melding together the team in pre-season.

You cannot say 'Swansea quoted Everton £50 million for Sigurddson and as such we want £120 million for Coutinho please'.

Madness. Half of you wouldn't know what to do in a transfer window without looking at other clubs as a guide.

Since Sessengon was first choice, I wonder if Klopp will have one eye on this for the future.

Pfft, he should be so lucky.
I can't imagine a player of his calibre saying
" oh look, Liverpool are on the blower, best keep them waiting another 8 weeks ".

I don't know, we've seen how loans are going for most of our players. I'd argue training at Liverpool and playing 25/ 30 games a season is better experience for him. If the coach who's loaned him decides he doesn't rate him 10 games in, he'll have a much worse time of it. Another coach has no investment in his development.

I'd argue the only time a loan is worthwhile is when the player is going to start every week, putting them into someone's squad to rotate with isn't any better than rotating with us.

We’ve barely played recently. Nobody should need a rest right now.

I think we'd be fools to pay him so much to stay on the injury table. At what point will we say enough is enough?

28 Jul 2017 13:25:57
I remember him being out of a match against Arsenal and I was gutted. For a very small period of time, he was a very good player.
Ed01, what happens to players like O'hara, Pennant and Konchesky? Have the legs all gone that much to drop down so low?

{Ed001's Note - it is lifestyle, all the partying and living it up takes a toll on fitness and also affects things like timing.}

You can guarantee that one CB at least will pick up an injury so then you are down to 4,
Matip and VVD first choice and Lovren/ Gomez and klavan as back up.
Should we stick with 4 and someone get long term injured, we'd have 3 senior CBS for potentially 60 games and while I understand the players should be able to handle that, it would be playing with fire.

Worth bearing in mind how quickly a player depreciates if he isn't playing.
Should VVD decide to strike and refuse to play, Soton will have a big decision on their hands.
Do they accept the £70 million deal or do they risk him not playing any football, draining resources and perhaps end up accepting half of that in the winter of next summer?
I'm not advocating this and I'd rather we stepped away but I guess it depend on how he feels more than anything else.
