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.


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

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.


{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 £20 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.


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 isn’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.



{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 😔)

{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.


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.


{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 didn’t play much before Christmas last year and he is a UK native. It’s worked out well for him. I think Klopp is taking the same approach for Fabinho 👍.

{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 😉.

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!

Just out of curiosity, are there instances where a player goes on loan and can play against the parent club?


{Ed002's Note - Yes in European Competion unless they have already played for their owning club.}

I may be way off base, but this feels sort of similar to the Keita deal in my opinion. Lots of media rumors, denials of a move, before announcement near the end of the summer.

I have no idea if it will get done or not. I hope it does if this is the guy Klopp wants. Patience is a virtue and we'll see what happens after the WC.

It also seems interesting that the statement from Lyon said he's staying rather than no deal will be done with Liverpool. I trust what the eds have said and loom forward to the new season regardless.

I thought the second and third goals were things of beauty.
