Good morning Eds. I recall last year there were rumors that Liverpool were interested in Karim Demirbay. I used the search engine and noticed he hasn't been mentioned since the fall. I was just curious to know if there really was any interest and, if so, if that interest continues.

dbav

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been added in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.}

Thank you Ed. It's very much appreciated.

Just a question for any of the Ed's that are available. Over the last few seasons, there have been some former Championship players that have become impact players for Premier League teams.

Are there any current Championship players you think we should keep an eye on, and are there any that Liverpool may be interested in? I don't get to see Championship matches where I am, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

dbav

{Ed002's Note - Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB), but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 19:42:02
Ed2 - you are the wind beneath our wings sir! ๐Ÿ˜Š
Thanks so much for all your incredible contribution!

{Ed002's Note - I guessed it would be "wind" based.}


2.) 27 Feb 2019 19:46:02
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 27 Feb 2019 21:00:48
Thank you for the info as ever Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}


4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:27:34
Ed2! good to see you around, thanks for the info, hows things?

{Ed002's Note - I am kicking my heels before leaving real early on Friday. Great result tonight and boosting the goals.}


5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:41:40
Who do you support ed 02? Just as a matter of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I have a soft spot for a few sides, Greenock Morton, Chelsea, and obviously Marseille. When I was a beautiful, pretty child with the most amazing hair there were no teams nearby. When i moved to England in 1981 my wife and I moved to Chelsea, close to the ground.}


6.) 27 Feb 2019 23:06:21
Hahaha ok thanx I don't know why but I thought u supported man United for some reason, balotelli is scoring still, and great result for Chelsea, greenock Morton I am not up on, cheers .


7.) 27 Feb 2019 23:49:35
Are you mates with jason manning? ๐Ÿ˜†. Admit you have a soft spot for us as well ed, the best fans in the land.


 

 

24 May 2018 15:47:22
Good Morning Eds. I see ESPN and a few others are reporting Liverpool interest in Christopher Nkunku. I checked the search engine and haven't seen his name mentioned in quite some time, so I thought I would ask if there was any actual interest. Thanks.

dbav

{Ed002's Note - i donโ€™t know but Fiorentina had discussions with him and stepped back because of demands for game time.}


1.) 24 May 2018 16:09:01
Thanks Ed002. It is greatly appreciated.

I have a question regarding a few current loan deals. It is my understanding that there are at least 2 players out on loan with an obligation to buy.

What are the benefits of a loan with an obligation to purchase? It seems like a drawn out sale, which makes me think I'm missing something, haha.

Any help would definitely be appreciated.

dbav

{Ed001's Note - there are a number of reasons to do so. The buying club might not have the money to complete the purchase immediately or FFP might preclude them from spending the money at that moment. It could be simply to put it into a following financial year or the obligation might come with caveats regarding the player's fitness, if they are known to have issues. I am sure there are a few other possibilities as well but I just can't think of them off the top of my head sorry. Oh another one is behaviour, if the player is known to have behavioural issues you would be basically giving them the loan spell to prove they have changed.}


1.) 09 Jan 2019 08:10:14
Thanks for the info ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}


2.) 09 Jan 2019 12:24:29
Hey Ed, further to this.

I realise you said behaviour is one benefit for (I presume) the selling/ / loanning out team. Other than that, what is the benefit for the selling club? Is it just to get them off the books that particular season?

Just trying to understand the Danny Ings loan/ / transfer slightly more. He seemed well behaved so it couldn't be any issues with that. What do we get from loaning him out to the Saints and not getting to have him back rather than sell him to someone willing to buy him now (if there was such a team looking to do so at the time, that is) .

{Ed001's Note - because of his injury history, we got the chance to get a better price than we would do otherwise by allowing him to prove his fitness. He would not have got the chance to play for us.}


3.) 09 Jan 2019 12:35:46
Thanks Ed, that makes sense.

I wonder what they'll be thinking over at Southampton. He definitley hasn't proved his fitness but still scoring goals! Worth the ยฃ20 million I wonder?

I continue to be impressed with the pairing of Gomez and VVD. In particular, I'm very happily surprised by VVD's dominance in the air. I feel like he gets a head to every cross into the defensive end. I didn't watch much of him prior to his time in Liverpool, so this has been something I've enjoyed seeing since he joined.

Also, the poise and confidence of Gomez seems to grow with every start. He's been terrific so far this season.

dbav

1.) 11 Nov 2018 15:10:15
I prefer Gomez to Lovren. VVD is a monster. I thought Gini was too deep today I wasn't surprised to see him hooked off, I thought maybe naby would've got more of a run out though. Hopefully he stays in Liverpool and gets some training in next week.


2.) 11 Nov 2018 15:16:02
I think Gini and Milner need a rest to be honest. Theymve done well this season so far, but other players are coming into their own now. Shaqiri and Fabinho have been excellent when they have played, we have clearly missed Henderson, and Keita has so much untapped potential. There isnโ€™t an awful lot klopp can do about Mane and Firmino under performing but he can at least keep our midfield fresh and reward the players who are contributing positively when they are given the chance.


3.) 11 Nov 2018 16:30:22
yeah would of been nice to see naby get a few more minutes in that game as the second half was a stroll.


 

 

02 Nov 2018 23:07:11
This one is for Ed1 if you are around. I know you have a long list of player profiles, but I was curious to know if you ever did one for Maldini? I was a huge fan of his (and Rui Costa on those teams) growing up. I ran his name through the search engine and saw a lot of references to him, but I don't recall seeing a profile.

Just curious to know if you'd done one in the past. I know you have a lengthy list that I don't want to add to, haha.

Thanks.

dbav

{Ed001's Note - no mate, but when I do a Legends of the Game article on a player I always do a player profile of them as well, so he will get one when I do that mate.}


1.) 03 Nov 2018 03:45:28
Thanks Ed. Sorry to make more work for you, haha.

{Ed001's Note - it's fine mate, he was already on the Legends list, so I would have done him anyway.}


2.) 03 Nov 2018 12:20:54
Oh Ed01, could you do a Legends Of The Game profile on Gheorghe Hagi?

{Ed001's Note - yep he is on the list.}


3.) 03 Nov 2018 12:53:36
Hristo Stoichkov, since we are discussing Balkan stars? (sorry if I'm adding to your workload ๐Ÿ˜”)

{Ed001's Note - don't worry he is on the list too.}


 

 

15 Sep 2018 14:22:48
I've been very happy with Gomez so far this season. Nothing flashy, but steady, which is what you need.

dbav

1.) 15 Sep 2018 14:33:23
Personally, I won't bring Lovren back to the side when he becomes fit, unless Gomez loses form.


 

 

08 Sep 2018 01:45:18
Hi Eds. I'm curious to know how Fabinho is doing. I know you've mentioned that he's had some difficulty picking up his role the current system (if I'm not mistaken) . I was wondering if he has made any progress.

I notice he's starting at right back for Brazil tonight, along with Firmino and Alisson.

dbav

{Ed001's Note - from what I am told he is settling in nicely to the UK now but the progression in understanding his role is taking a bit longer. Liverpool never used to bring new players straight into the team, they always used to spend 6 months or so learning the system and how they fit into it. That was much less complicated than modern football tactics etc, so I would not worry too much. It just shows how happy Klopp is with the squad that he can afford to give the lad time to adapt fully.}


1.) 08 Sep 2018 05:45:34
I think the best way to look at it would be how badly Bakayoko performed last year at Chelsea, he was thrown in and expected to replace Matic immediately and it didn't work out.


2.) 08 Sep 2018 07:49:31
Robertson didnโ€™t play much before Christmas last year and he is a UK native. Itโ€™s worked out well for him. I think Klopp is taking the same approach for Fabinho ๐Ÿ‘.

{Ed001's Note - and we used to get a similar 'where's Robertson?' 500 questions a day until he got in the team as well.}


3.) 08 Sep 2018 09:30:09
Maybe 450 from me ed ๐Ÿ˜‰.


4.) 08 Sep 2018 10:58:22
Accepting the credit there Ron lol. I am pretty sure it was a similar thing with the Ox, and all have become integral parts of the squad. Patience is a virtue.


5.) 08 Sep 2018 11:23:02
Fabinho played right back for Brazil last night apparently.
So we have a RB converted to a midfielder and a midfielder converted to a RB.
Happy days. A good footballer is a good footballer.

I wonder with Fabinho will play in a midfield 3, or as a true DM with 3 in front and 2 up top, or withdraw Salah and Mane and leave a lone striker?


6.) 08 Sep 2018 15:06:16
Even "where's Gomez". Took him time to adapt too. I must admit I was worried about Gomez. Silly me.


7.) 08 Sep 2018 16:54:56
All in good time, we really have a decent player there.


8.) 08 Sep 2018 18:27:10
Thanks for the info Ed!

{Ed001's Note - no worries, you are welcome.}


9.) 08 Sep 2018 18:29:08
And sorry, I didn't mean to sound like it was a "where's Fabinho" type of post, haha. More a matter of being interested to hear about his progress. Thanks again!

Thanks for the write up Ed. I thought Lucas Moura looked lively on Sunday and we had some trouble keeping up with him. Happy to get the 3 points we needed.
