Hi Eds, apparently Barcelona have offered Ousmane Demebele to Liverpool as long as we match there valuation. I believe we had previous interest in the past, i think Klopp liked him. Would this be someone we would go for as a Salah replacement should he leave knowing that he is available?

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - Ousmane Demebele would obviously be a Salah replacement but I suspect a move to Liverpool is unlikely and I am not aware of Barcelona offering him to Liverpool- but they are certainly not happy with him.}


1.) 17 Jun 2019 19:10:19
Thanks ED002, thought it would be a longshot.


2.) 17 Jun 2019 23:28:07
So there's the two players Barcelona bought with the nemar money surplus to requirements, and both going on strike to force the move. Grass not always greener.


3.) 18 Jun 2019 00:54:44
Well said port red. Not to go against anything the OP said but, if Barcelona are trying to call us out on prices for their reserves, they might want to take a step back and look at the 6 times European Champions record of selling them OUR reserves.


4.) 18 Jun 2019 12:31:59
Already said it but i reckon dembele would be a Sturridge replacement. As salah is not leaving this year. And there was interest last year when Salah certainly wasn't leaving. And they play on opposite sides of the pitch.


5.) 18 Jun 2019 14:36:34
I keep seeing "dembele plays on the opposite side to Salah" but he's left footed right? Klopp has the system setup so the wingers cut in on their strongest foot meaning dembele would go be for the right side.

Portuguese news outlet 'Record' are reporting that Bruno Fernandes's agent is flying into London to meet with representatives of LFC, Tottenham and MUFC.

Surely of those three options he would see LFC as the best move?

alexdavies1993

1.) 06 Jun 2019 17:24:04
the player made some comments about how he liked liverpools playing style. but it looks like he is bound to go to manchester united.


2.) 06 Jun 2019 19:05:28
Well at least we know he's no glory hunter if United end up as his preference.


3.) 06 Jun 2019 17:51:04
I can believe he is meeting with Utds reps only. Would that be more accurate Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained Liverpool interest but not any offer at this time.}


4.) 06 Jun 2019 22:36:24
Ed002 you've mentioned that perhaps Liverpool would look to bring in an attacking midfielder so presumably Fernandes would fit that role. As a follow up though, some people mentioned if Fekir had been brought in he could have covered Firminos "false 9" position, do you know if Fernandes is capable of the same?

{Ed002's Note - Fernandes is not a forward, so no. Fekir certainly could provide that cover.}


5.) 07 Jun 2019 11:08:01
It is obviously true that Sane wants a move for more game time. But it is also true that Man City without players of the talent level of Sane on the bench would not win the league. Teams fighting for the highest honors need one or two top level players on the bench. The trick is then for manager to use an effective rotation system that allows everyone to contribute. But certainly some will play more than others.


6.) 07 Jun 2019 15:20:09
sane won the game against us. so yeah spot on!


7.) 08 Jun 2019 10:48:41
Hi gang,
Hope the rumours are true if we’re after NICHOLAS PEPE.
Don’t really understand this THE FRONT THREE PICK ITSELF, if we want to get back to we’re we were then THE FRONT THREE have to be challenged, we can’t become complacent, it only takes a nasty injury from one of them and we’re knackered, for me the more quality we have the better, let's not bury our head in the sand and think that THE FRONT THREE is the only three, they have to be put under pressure.


 

 

04 Apr 2019 18:36:58
Reports in Brazil (UOL) that Richarlison's agent has been in contact with Liverpool, is there truth in this and do we hold any interest?

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - Velasco turns up in England occasionally but I am not aware of any contact. Everton has made clear Richarlison is not for sale, but I guess if Mane went he might be an option, but I don't know of any interest from Liverpool.}


1.) 04 Apr 2019 19:33:00
Thanks for the reply ed2! :)

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Alex.}


2.) 04 Apr 2019 20:33:49
Richarlison in place of mane, this is Thursday not Monday.


3.) 04 Apr 2019 20:39:33
A bit late for an April fools joke.

Just thought i'd mention these reports coming out of Spain, the reports are that a Spanish team approached Dortmund enquiring about Pulisic and were told its impossible they already have a agreement with a English club for next season. This was a few days ago and now another Journalist has said this agreement is with Liverpool.

Any truth to this Eds that they have a agreement with a English club and that club possibly being Liverpool?

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you on Twitter about Liverpool I would think Andy.}


1.) 16 Dec 2018 16:46:35
I reckon he’ll go to Chelsea to replace Hazard.


2.) 16 Dec 2018 18:39:11
A lot of places saying it’s chelsea mate.


3.) 16 Dec 2018 19:38:15
We don’t need Pulsic.

{Ed0333's Note - Every team in world football needs Pulisic mate he’s that good. Would you complain if we bought him? If Salah got injured or wasn’t playing too well wow wee what a replacement to come off the bench.


4.) 16 Dec 2018 20:48:47
I don’t think he’s come to us mate, certainly not to sit on the bench.


5.) 16 Dec 2018 20:54:20
I think it’ll be Chelsea too.
Sell Hazard for £180 m and get Pulisic in for less than half that maybe?
That doesn’t seem so bad perhaps.


6.) 17 Dec 2018 15:07:24
I can’t see them getting anywhere near £180 mil for a guy that will have 12 months to run on his contract. Looks like they will get bent over like they were for Courtois and get as close to £100 mil as they can. No doubt real will offer Benzema and a whole host of squad players Chelsea don’t want and he will eventually move there right at the end of the summer window.


7.) 18 Dec 2018 15:28:27
Lucky to get 50 million.


 

 

05 Sep 2018 16:28:18
Do we hold any interest in Rabiot? Apparently Klopp is very interested and the club are in contact with his agent (His mum) . Hope its true, looks a great player already.

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - This might be something recycled from the summer. I am not aware of Liverpool having any discussions with his mother.}


1.) 05 Sep 2018 17:15:41
Were do these rumours come from lol. We have been speaking to his agent mother? We are stacked in Central Midfield why would we be after another.

Thank you for putting this one to bed ed.


2.) 05 Sep 2018 17:36:32
My reply not gone up. I will try a diff reply ed sory if ot was not acceptable mate.

So is that a no interest from us in the player please?

{Ed002's Note - If there is interest Liverpool would need to speak with his mother and at some point PSG to find out any costs they might be expecting when his contract concludes. Other clubs have been speaking to both parties already.}


3.) 05 Sep 2018 19:37:59
Apparently, he has already had a call with Klopp, probably to arrange a trip to Blackpool.


4.) 05 Sep 2018 19:41:54
Ok rd thank you for reply. Appreciate it.


5.) 05 Sep 2018 21:01:00
Ed002, won't he be 24 by then? and hence as free as free can be?

{Ed002's Note - No it is not related to the clubs who did his training but to any costs which PSG will look to claim. Being free of a contract does not mean the registration still resides with the club he was last contracted to. There are always residual costs to pay.}


6.) 06 Sep 2018 11:01:39
@Kloppbanger - I do think that these stories are guff however, when you say 'we are stacked in midfield why would we be after another' that doesn't really make a lot of sense if you look at the bigger picture. Lallana will surely leave in the not so distant future and, even if he doesn't, has not performed well for quite a while. Our new midfielder (Fabinho) is struggling to settle with no timeline (that I am aware of) for him to start playing games. Wijinaldum is wildly inconsistent and seems to, based on watching him last season and the start of this, have 3 bad games for every decent game he has.

So imagine Wijinaldum and Lallana leaving by next summer we have in midfield:

Keita, Henderson, Milner, Fabinho (whose ability to settle will be key in him becoming a long term fixture or not), Shaqiri can cover the advanced midfield area. I think their is still scope to improve the midfield personally. Milner is 32 and, sooner or later, will be unable to maintain his energy levels and consistency. Henderson is 28 with a dodgy injury record - he seems to have recovered well but anything could happen. Difficult to know what will happen with Fabinho - obviously we all hope he can settle and contribute. I can see space for another midfielder there personally, Rabiot on a free is not so far-fetched (in terms of us wanting a midfielder), though the actual story of speaking to his mother seems like pure fantasy from the gutter press.


7.) 07 Sep 2018 16:45:37
Are we not looking for a player who can play the quick pass to the front 3 and escape the midfield press?

If I remember correctly, we wanted Jorginho for that role.

If Fabinho doesn't make it, then I suspect we will be looking at bringing in another midfielder.

Rabiot might make sense if we are priced out of Ruben Neves.


8.) 09 Sep 2018 06:57:45
Geez, leave Fabinho out of this would you? He hasn't even played a single competitive game for us and people are talking like we are looking to offload him already.


9.) 09 Sep 2018 13:13:56
Calm down.

Many indications Fabinho may well play for us a defender.

Nobody is slating him. He hasn't played yet!

Hi Ed002, i know you mentioned a while ago that you were planning on doing a Sharkopod, have you had a chance to do it yet?

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - I am very much struggling with time Alex and unexpectedly need to travel later this week for a day or two. First chance I get I will be doing it.}

Not a rumour but i found this interesting regarding this transfer: Tom Werner has vowed that funds will be available for whatever reinforcements the manager requests.

"John (W Henry), Mike (Gordon) and I will leave the transfer business to those who know it so well - Jurgen and Michael Edwards" Werner said.

"If they recommend someone then we will support that recommendation. Our role at FSG is to support the manager and the people around him in the best way that we possibly can. ".

alexdavies1993

1.) 31 May 2019 12:40:19
To add to this, Liverpool owner John W Henry has done an interview with Sky Sports and said that winning Champions League won’t make up for missing out on the title. Liverpool will go again and invest this summer to make sure they win Premier League next season.


I know a lot has been said about us in the new that we won't be spending much this summer but this seems to contradict that?


2.) 31 May 2019 12:48:29
we have money, we can buy who we want.

the want is more important than the money.

if we see 3 players for 40 mil that improve us then that is what we will do.

if we see signing 1 player for 70 that will improve us then that is what we will do.

nothing from the outside will impact that.

for me we need another pace, high quality forward and a cb. lb and rb cover is difficult. if Milner stays then I'm confident we won't need any, as Gomez and Milly can sort that!


3.) 31 May 2019 12:52:37
Did you see his comment, and I paraphrase, ‘Liverpool fan are amongst the most literate and passionate in the world’.

Literate?! What a random choice of words!


4.) 31 May 2019 12:57:44
That quote further gives legitimacy to Ed002 saying that Liverpool are trying to buy the league. However, it's no different than any other club in my opinion. You almost have to these days.


5.) 31 May 2019 13:03:31
As Ed002 has said Alex the club will support Klopp and invest on who he wants. Shame for some of the youngsters who will have to move on, Ed002 is also right in saying we are trying to buy success. Either way we need to start winning things again so what ever it takes for me.


6.) 31 May 2019 13:09:51
I read the interview and I don't think it means will spend big money on a backup. Full interview talks about the right player and doing so in a way that the club is still sustainable.

But if the right player that could walk into our first 11 became available and the player wanted the move I am sure they would make it happen.

I think our summer business will be focused on making sure we have the right players that can fit our system from the bench. For example we take off Firmino who is hungry pressing and bring on someone who can offer similar as sadly it seems Sturridge legs have gone or we take off Mane / Salah when having an off game and bring on someone with pace rather than Lallana etc.


7.) 31 May 2019 13:24:20
I agree Virgil, if we are going to try and buy success, we'd better start winning titles. Ed002 is spot on in my opinion.


8.) 31 May 2019 14:05:52
Every team challenging for the title or near it at this level that the PL has become, needs to spend to have a chance or has to "buy success" cos that is the bare that has been raised for the past 15 or so years now. Leicester City was the outlier. What we have to do is be very strategic in how we spend our money while being equally being very creative in the types of players we are targeting to improve us.

As someone already said, the money is there to be spent on the right players should the opportunity come and I'm totally cool with that provided we are not taking in too much debt to finance them cos Ed02 has been very outspoken about the debt needing to be reigned in.

{Ed002's Note - The club are committed to trying to buy the league that will remain the target.}


9.) 31 May 2019 14:08:28
Every few years Ajax gets decimated after bringing a new crop of successful young players through. and for a while it started feeling like we were raising players for the two Spanish giants. I'm glad that has changed even though it is now harder for young players to break through.


10.) 31 May 2019 14:23:31
well at least we're the not the first to buy the league or any league.

Madrid have done it for ever, except they coined a name for themselves 'galacticos' makingn it ok for them.

Barcelona are breaking away from their traditions. city. United. Chelsea. psg. Munich. juventus.

couldn't care less. comparing to other sides 'again' and what, provides context. Atleast we're spending what we earn.

Buy it or steal it. Just bring the damn thing home.


11.) 31 May 2019 15:34:01
The game has changed to much financially as it evolves and money grows it's making it more and more difficult for youth to break through maybe a rule that at least 5 local home grown must start each match would change things massively. what would anyone suggest to improve youth development?


12.) 31 May 2019 15:44:19
Firmane, I would guess Henry was aiming for “articulate” rather than “literate” - the irony of his spoonerism is hilarious!

I would go with articulate when you see our banners and songs. I must’ve showed the “my bird” banner to dozens of people. Just brilliant!


13.) 31 May 2019 23:24:29
Has there ever been a time the league was not bought? Either the money you spend on transfers buys it, or the money you spend on wages, or the money you spend on coaches and training facilities. But titles and trophies are always bought in one way or another aside from a few rare exceptions which usually happen when other teams are rebuilding.

Every team that is successful does so from a platform of financial superiority.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, this season when Liverpool did not manage to buy the league.}


 

 

14 May 2019 12:18:47
Hi Eds, was wondering if i could get your opinion on the reports from The New York Times, that says Man City have been found to be misleading financial regulators and will receive a 1 year CL Ban.

To me this doesn't seem like it will act as a deterrent to stop clubs financially doping in the future. If they can see that they can prosper massively and only receive a slap on the wrist and then still be able to use the team they shouldn't be able to have. All i can see this doing is other teams attempting the same. Football should not be a toy for the rich, and this would show that it could be.

alexdavies1993

{Ed002's Note - I think without the facts you should perhaps leave the subject alone.}


1.) 14 May 2019 14:39:13
Let’s all just focus on this little trophy we have coming up to compete for!

We should already be singing, let’s let those spurs fans who they are up against!


2.) 14 May 2019 14:39:50
I've learned that on these issues, we just wait for ED002 to tell us what they actually mean because the posters get it wrong 98% of the time.


 

 

04 Jan 2019 12:50:07
Clyne on loan to Bournemouth, surely this leaves us short for Cover? i know Gomez plays there but he has had injury issues a few times.

alexdavies1993

1.) 04 Jan 2019 13:27:01
Fabinho and Milner can adequately cover that side too. Clyne has barely even played.


2.) 04 Jan 2019 13:32:09
Doesn't it tell you they will probably buy someone for the RB position?


3.) 04 Jan 2019 13:49:18
Clyne was on fairly high wages mate. This loan move saves us some money in wages, and helps put Clyne in the shop market for the summer (or maybe to return to us a regular starter if he can pick up form - which I doubt) . Most importantly, it's a good move for Clyne. Fab and Millie can cover RB, Moreno can cover LB and then we also have the likes of Adam Lewis in reserves. Not too fussed about this one.


4.) 04 Jan 2019 17:06:18
I think Clyne can improve enough to be part of our team. I'm a bit disappointed he's gone. I know he isn't popular but he looked to have gone up a notch against utd.


5.) 05 Jan 2019 00:44:54
Clyne has been on the departure block for the past two seasons now cos he and Klopp have never saw eye to eye esp. based on his "unprofessional lifestyle" as Ed01 once said. Also, he does not offer the type of attacking quality and danger that TAA possesses nor is he that good a defender either. So in the end, this was bound to happen.

I’d honestly only believe Pulisic would happen if one of our front 3 was to leave. No thanks, i appreciate what we have!


2.) 16 Dec 2018 18:15:57
Spot on, AW. If all our big guns up top are staying and we just splurged on Keita and Shaq, Pulisic (who I would take in a heartbeat) ain't going to happen and I'm cool with it.

We need another attacking midfielder in my opinion, we have enough forwards but no AM.

This is how i see your list above
Henderson - Box 2 box / DM
Wijnaldum - Box 2 box
Fabinho - DM
MIlner - Box 2 Box / AM (But ageing won't be a major starter)
Keita - Box 2 box
Oxlade-Chamberlain - AM (Coming back from a heavy layoff)
Lallana - Should be sold, as can't be relied upon.

From how i seen it we only have 2 AM one of which is ageing and will possibly only have 1 more season and Ox who has just come back from a long injury and could easily get a few niggles keeping him out for short periods. That means we are back to just Box 2 box midfielders and DM with little creativity coming from the midfield. I know a lot of our chances come from our fullbacks, but we need to have more options in attacking, someone to play balls through the defence. Although i do believe this is one of Keita's strong points in his game, so hopefully he steps up there.

Ed001 as i understand he was the first journo to break that we were in for Fabinho when he wasn't mentioned before, few hours later Fabinho signed. I know most Journos aren't trusted and this guy probably isn't either just thought id share that someone else had said the same as the first poster.

Ed01, do you think there is a chance we are in for Felix or are we just being mixed in with the rest?

alexdavies1993

{Ed001's Note - that doesn't mean anything as no one mentioned him until the deal was already done. It just means he was awake at the right time.

As far as I am aware, according to his agent at least who would have no reason to talk down potential interest, we are not in the running for him. I can only go on that.}

Ed25, How can you even suggest we are spending the same as city.
Since Guardiola has come in city have spent around 600m on transfer fees recouping around 180m from player sales so a net spend of 427m over 3 season.

In that time LFC have spent around 390m on transfer fees and recouping around 285m from player sales so a net spend of 104m over 3 seasons. Even our owner has said without the sale of Coutinho we wouldn't have been able to do the business we have.

I couldn't care less how City do or don't break the rules but to suggest we are able to compete with them on a financial level is wrong. Since Guardiola has come in they bought almost 2 starting 11's that could compete in the premier league, its incredible that we manage to keep pace with that team whilst winning a CL.

alexdavies1993

{Ed025's Note - you are quoting ammounts of money that mean FA in football alex, would you swap your £8m robbo for citys £50m stones?...of course not so the money is a moot point, jealousy is a terrible trait to have, years ago it was utd and now its city and its all a little bit sad to be honest mate..
