lfc and Bournemouth supposedly agreed a fee for Bradford Smith. around 6mil according to reports.

kjmainstreet

Bradford? 😄.


2.) 23 Jul 2016 22:47:48
Bradford? 😄.

Have the Eds heard any rumours regarding Oscar Wendt to Liverpool? I remember him being linked with us years ago, but recently heard his name mentioned as a possible target, on another forum.

{Ed002's Note - A Hodgson target when he first arrived? Sure, why the hell not.}


4.) 23 Jul 2016 22:59:46
damn predictive txt on me phone.


5.) 23 Jul 2016 23:24:37
So potentially 22 mil for two fringe players. that's another plus for using the academy, of course you want to have them star for you but if there not deemed good ebough, once they have a good amount if appearances for a team such of ours, couting there age aswel, the fees are there for us to demand.

Ojo has a season or two now and if he doesn't maie it its another 10/ 13 mil just ib potebtial.


6.) 24 Jul 2016 01:03:21
Thatd be the advantage of developing youngsters. Cyncis would say fsg buy youth players solely for the intention of selling for profit. But I don't believe this at all. If the player pushes on and can contribute at 1st team level then he will. But if not then at least ya haven't wasted 30-odd million on someone like benteke. flipsidee being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through.


7.) 24 Jul 2016 02:10:37
Faithinworks, arevu saying no opportunities given to young players? Are u following liverpool at all?


8.) 24 Jul 2016 03:33:38
I think you'll find what I said was - " flipside being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through. "

if that translates to "no opportunities given to young players" then I'm sorry, I can't help you.


9.) 24 Jul 2016 07:10:31
Its a complete myth about fsg buying young to sell at a profit.

All clubs buy for the academy and then any young players who we've bought for the starting 11 we've massively over paid for them ie firmino.


10.) 24 Jul 2016 11:09:49
You think if we sold firmino now we wouldn't turn a profit? Karius, gruijic, Gomez, Ings, origi all players that if we sold in a few years we'd get more than we paid.


11.) 24 Jul 2016 11:37:33
I believe we would make a profit on Roberto Firmino but have a revolutionary thought, let's not sell our top assets.

{Ed041's Note - he washout best player in the second half of the season for me. If GW price went up after his poor showing last season RF value will of definitely increased.


12.) 24 Jul 2016 12:14:24
Fencey we would make a small profit yes but not the sort of profits people make out.

The way people go on is like fsg buy for a few mil and try and make a fortune.

Carrol didn't make anything, benteke won't either.


13.) 25 Jul 2016 08:04:07
Use of academies is always going to vary depending upon the size and wealth of the club. Smaller clubs, e. g. AFC Wimbledon, have a stated policy that they want to make half their first team home developed. They don't have the money to do anything else and can't afford to keep players around on good contracts as back ups.

But clubs like Liverpool are not going to be replacing half their first team squad every year or two so obviously most of the kids who come through the academy are going to be released or sold. That isn't a policy of signing them to sell them.

You would hope for 1 or 2 players good enough every few years realistically. But you can't just put the best player on the pitch on their own, they need a squad of around 14-15 each year they run a team. Realistically that is 14-15 lads who won't come through. That thins out post 16 but it still remains the case that the 17-21 year olds are almost all going to be released or sold. You can't keep them and bearing in mind you'll have fresh youngsters coming through this is just an ongoing cycle. If you can make some money from that natural cycle then that makes business sense but it still doesn't mean they are signed to be sold.

Even Chelsea you could argue aren't doing that, they have the cash to cast their net wider and sign in bucket loads of youngsters in the hope they find the odd one or two who are special. That they make money from loaning them out isn't necessarily why they do it.

Ironically, a kid wanting to play for a big club could be argued to be better off going into the set up at a much smaller club as that gives more chance of making it into the first team and at a younger age, which is the irony as then they have more chance of getting to a big team than a kid sitting in the age groups at the big club.

{Ed002's Note - Right - "clubs like Liverpool are not going to be replacing half their first team squad every year or two".


14.) 25 Jul 2016 08:19:55
ED - ok change that to shouldn't be if they get their recruitment right first time around, should also say if you replace managers regularly you'll see big squad changes but rarely to bring through youngsters, in fact you may see lots of existing youth binned for an influx from the country of the new manager. Either way, not going to replace half the squad with academy products.


 

 

31 Jan 2016 22:21:37
ED002, can I ask a question that may seem odd even conspiracy theory like?

I am not for one minute saying this to be the case or have any info on this whatsoever but can I ask a bit about the teixeira offer? I seen on earlier posts that you said the owner of shakhtar kept on putting the price up when Chelsea came calling about teixeira so subsequently a deal was not concluded. Did lfc know all about the ongoings between the 2 clubs? I only ask this as I have a little theory (I have had a few scoops tonight so i will deny all tomorrow) it seems pointless lfc entering negotiations or any talks with shakhtar if they knew how awkward they were to strike a deal with, that is unless we did know and had no intention of getting teixeira but looked good to the fans craving a big money signing? All bollocks and I know this wouldn't be the case but been sitting bored for last hour.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool would have known that there was a certain futility in making a very low offer and never really increasing it. Shakhtar has done nothing but said the player will be sold in the summer - they have known for months that he wanted to leave this year. If they had read these pages they would have known what happened with Chelsea and the increasing price - I have made no secret of it. There is no conspracy and people should not forget that the club is in a precarious position financially. Perhaps the offer was all they can risk.}


1.) 01 Feb 2016 09:25:30
cheers for your reply ED002 as always is most appreciated. I won't try and ask if we interested or sign anyone today. try enjoy your day guys you ALL do a top job. 😆.

{Ed002's Note - I would not expect too much to happen with LFC today - hopefully no knee jerk buys. I could see one leaving and a loan or two outbound perhaps. Have a good day.}


2.) 01 Feb 2016 09:41:35
Ed, can you explain what you mean by "precarious position financially"? - Have we NO money, have we been bought by chancers? ( yet again) According to statistics prodcued, we are around the 8th richest club in Europe, so god help the rest if we are skint. Keep up the good work!

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the financial position on many occasions. I have no idea what you mean by "richest".}


3.) 01 Feb 2016 10:57:05
They are not chancers IMO
They have invested lots in transfers plus associated fees
They are funding the ground upgrade.

Give them a break. I think the precarious position is because the club is borrowing money against future income and losing money weekly.
We have to get the wage bill under control, we have to get the squad number under control and we have to optimise income from sponsorship, gate receipts/ corporate and all that requires a successful team.

I think they need to rein in the spending, generate money from sales and utilise the reserves more. We need to hold our nerve and not throw more good money after bad.
The modern day fan has grown up with 5-6 in-coming transfers a season. They must change their perspective and realise this is not sustainable and complete folly. You win things with consistency, you don't become consistent by having a revolving transfer door. That just makes you poor.
All opinion.


4.) 01 Feb 2016 11:24:03
I am not surprised Liverpool are in a precarious financial position.

Having had a manager who spent fortunes on donkeys and loan-outs.

However there are some good buys and money from good sales.

I got grief because I called Benteke a donkey. Which was unfair on my part. Expensive mis-fit would have been a better description.

The walking wounded list is unfortunate.

Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Alex Texeira, he wants to come. Shaktar are digging their heels in. Why keep a player that doesn't want to play for you?

{Ed001's Note - because they will sell him in the summer and want him until then.}


5.) 01 Feb 2016 11:36:56
Do we have a good chance of him in the summer then ed? Its a long way off i no. Will we have to start from scratch with him again?

{Ed001's Note - depends on whether we still want him then or not really.}


6.) 01 Feb 2016 10:35:15
Ed can you say who might leave us and who the loan might be please? Youngsters?

{Ed002's Note - Sinclair - and the sqaud is too large so a couple of loans would not be a surprise.}


7.) 01 Feb 2016 19:02:57
Ed002 I've had no offers nor made any bids.

All the best.


8.) 01 Feb 2016 20:44:17
Just thought I'd mention this 'precarious financial position', ED2 mentioned. It's not actually precarious in the slightest. We have an interest free loan from the owners, but it's not the size of Bolton - the commercial team will manage to sell some form of rights on the new stand - of that, I am positive.

Outside of our interest free loans (which are exactly what Chelsea and Manchester City had before they were written off), we're in a solid financial position, based on reasonable accounting of outgoing vs incoming transfers and the length of contracts offered to new and current squad members.

For example, Migs new contract was likely offered to allow for a longer accounting of the original fee paid. Allen isn't on for a new contract for two reasons. A) there is only £4.5m remaining of his transfer fee to be allocated in accounts - his value is currently low. To increase and preserve that, Liverpool would look to sign a new deal with him. However, I still see him being sold in the summer.

I'm still predicting a small profit (around £10m) in the next financial reports, prior to the influx of overseas rights money. I may be wrong in my predictions (I wasn't last time), but I wouldn't call that precarious, by any means.

{Ed001's Note - how much of a debt do you think Bolton have? Bearing in mind their owner just wrote off some of it. I don't think you quite understand the issue is not debt with Bolton at all. It is not having the cash flow to keep up with payments such as tax. Profits or otherwise are not really relevant, the accounts can be messed around with very easily to make a business look profitable if need be. The issue is that underneath it, the spending outstrips the income.}


 

 

21 Jan 2016 11:13:52
if ED002 would be so kind in providing us an update in Alex teixeira if possible?
I looked on the Chelsea page search engine and I seen a post from yourself when providing transfer updates for the guys and gals over there, you said you expected a deal to be done in January can you confirm if Chelsea still interested or have they taken a step back now? if so do you know the reason why, or was it the 2 clubs simply not agreeing a fee? I understand you a busy man and don't like to give hour by hour updates but this seems to have come way out of left field if this whole lfc teixeira rumour is true. thanks ed for your time and patience.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - Shakhtar's Alex Teixeira has accepted an offer to join Chelsea in January, but the move remains subject to (a) Shakhtar deciding to sell - and their owner is blocking any move at this time; (b) the clubs agreeing a fee and terms - but they have been negotiating - but the price was raised considerably, and (c) the player being able to pass a medical this month, . Juventus and and PSG have a declared interest and Spurs have watched him recently but it is unlikely an eventual move to Chelsea can be disrupted - but I suspect the summer is far more likely now. I am travelling at the moment so I am not sure what is happening with Liverpool.}


1.) 21 Jan 2016 13:02:48
Cheers ed002, your reply was a big help.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 21 Jan 2016 14:54:53
He (Alex) fits the profile of the players we are after, young with a hamstring injury.


3.) 21 Jan 2016 16:10:55
he's not that young, Roy.


4.) 21 Jan 2016 16:54:05
And he doesn't have a hamstring injury, they have confirmed that rumour was false.


5.) 22 Jan 2016 06:19:44
Read Ed002s reply!
He ain't coming to Liverpool if the deal to go to Chelsea is tied up.

Good old Daily Star! reliable as ever in writing rubbish.

{Ed001's Note - the player accepted an agreement, but the club didn't, read what Ed002 said again.}


6.) 22 Jan 2016 19:10:42
Fair point. Still can't help thinking this is unlikely to happen.


 

 

06 Jan 2016 22:26:40
a question for ED002 if he around to answer possibly? I've seen a report linking us with a loan to buy offer for mario suarez (fiorientina) as I understand watford have supposedly made a similar offer. is there any truth to lfc bid for him or just lazy journalism again? thanks for your time.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - I am aware that Mario Suarez wants a move from Fiorentina due to lack of playing time and I understand he is attracted by English wages. Southampton, Leicester, Stoke, Marseille, Sevilla and Braga are cited as being interested and Watford have offered a loan to buy deal that may well be viable. A January move is certainly possible.}


1.) 07 Jan 2016 02:30:43
He was a decent player when he was at Atletico, though he is as slow as it can get.


2.) 07 Jan 2016 07:55:47
i guess if he slow but good, means he plays like Roman Riquelme.


3.) 07 Jan 2016 00:47:07
Hi eds, did u mention mario suarez as too slow for gegenpressing game?

{Ed002's Note - I have not said anything about Mario Suarez except to explain that Liverpool has no interest in him.}


4.) 07 Jan 2016 00:47:07
Hi eds, did u mention mario suarez as too slow for gegenpressing game?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no need to mention Suarez on these pages as Liverpool are not interested in him.}


 

 

22 Sep 2015 22:26:20
Been reading site with keen interest(as per usual I may add) trying to digest what Macca has had to say recently. I don't really wanna try comment too much but would like to ask a question to ed002 if he/she about to answer it? The talk seems to be Ancelotti will be looked at if results don't improve now whilst I don't want to ask you if that a viable option(don't really wanna pit you in a position where you may disagree with Macca and get endless abuse) my question is as you have seen him first hand in charge of your club(Chelsea) what are his strengths and weaknesses as a manager? Would he in your opinion be a good fit at lfc?? Many thanks for all your hard work & dedication us fans really appreciate what insights, however small you guys share with us all.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - Macca has said that Ancelotti has himself already met with Liverpool - assuming that to be correct I would assume it has gone beyond being directly related to results - and there is always this general misunderstanding or misinterpretation with the oft used "coach x has four games to save his job" type attention grabber. I imagine if you could bring yourself to Google +liverpool and +"red alert" you would get some fun items come up.

I answered earlier about the viability - Ancelotti took time off to address a medical issue and to complete a side project which is in hand. For me, the timing doesn't look good for him. We'll see if he can be persuaded it is something that would be good to do now.

I am not that much of a fan to care about tactics, who the players are and who the coaches are. I can say that he is happy to take a back seat (not in all cases, but most) over transfers. He is a bright guy with a dry sense of humour but comes across as a bit miserable. There are no major language issues as he speaks good English.

If he were to go to Liverpool, it might work. Probably not a natural fit, and I think there are better solutions out there. But there are certainly worse solutions.}

would be interesting to know the amount of km/ Miles we have ran in the past couple of games. I think we have looked shattered if I'm honest and jus wondering if it a mental or more a physical thing.

kjmainstreet

 

 

11 Jan 2017 13:34:45
If at all possible would like to get reds and eds stance on the sakho situation. if what we read to be true (and I know ed002 has gave us up to date details recently) liverpool have supposedly put a £20mil price tag on his head and as things stand don't want a loan deal (which may change closer to window closing, which I think seems daft reading that if true because surley any clubs wanting him on loan will jus wait until the final couple days of the window) as a player I liked sakho and thought he was our best cb last year and was much better on the ball than given credit for, his contract runs till 2020 so has still a few good years on it plus after his form last year got himself back into the French national side. 20mil to me doesn't seem like a daft figure to quote interested parties if I'm honest. clubs usually have a figure in mind what they want for a player and it is upto the buying club weather they think that price is acceptable or if they want to try negotiate a deal for slightly less or other things based on appearances so on so forth. MANY times I feel liverpool have overpaid for players and seem to sell them on for a major loss jus to balance the books but other clubs seem to still get top dollar for the players that they seem to sell on, I will use United situation with schniderlain at the minute, clearly doesn't feature in mourinho long term plans and seem to be selling him on for pretty much what they paid for him. again this is because the buying club ( everton) see this as a fair price and just because a player isn't wanted/ needed buy his club it doesn't mean that he won't be wanted or needed by another. anyways enough of my rant hopefully a deal can be struck by another club and lfc won't have to fork out a large portion of wages plus loose out on a transfer fee aswel.

kjmainstreet

1.) 11 Jan 2017 15:48:49
If Stones is worth 50 million then 20 for Salhouse is a steal.

I wish there was some other way to resolve the situation but it doesn't look possible.

Sakhos distribution out of defence was a great benefit to the team compared with Lovren and Klaven.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing whatsoever to do with John Stones.}


2.) 11 Jan 2017 17:15:53
It was just a casual comparison of the sort fans often make and perfectly valid. Sahko is definitely worth two-fifths of a Stones 🤣


3.) 11 Jan 2017 17:41:49
The club has a price they deem fair in the current market.
I don't see why anyone would have a problem with it tbh.


 

 

19 Dec 2016 15:14:46
happy derby day eds and fellow reds.
has anyone any inside info on the fitness of can, studge and matip. by what I can gather from various websites so on so forth can and studge could make it but matip seems unlikely. has ed001 heard or got any info?

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - There has been no update on injuries from the club since Friday.}


1.) 19 Dec 2016 16:53:27
thanks for reply ed002.


2.) 19 Dec 2016 16:53:27
thanks for reply ed002.


 

 

14 Nov 2016 11:32:36
a question for ed002 if he about?
How does the special talent quota work for young players getting work permits work please? I may have the wrong end of the stick here but didn't we sign gruijic based on this rule? not sure if he been injured or anything but I don't believe he has made the match day squad for the past 3 premier league games. Surely this is against what we have said to the work permit application people? I know the season only early and he may need a settle in period but I can't see him playin the required games to qualify for a new permit. If this is the case does this go against us in future when we ask about another special talented kid for another permit?
many thanks for your time reading through.
kj.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - There is no "quota". Klopp went along and said that Grujic would be a regular member of the team this season and the authorities bought it. If he is not used more his work permit will be withdrawn. Credibility goes with such behaviour.}


1.) 14 Nov 2016 11:50:44
cheers for the quick reply ed002 most appreciated. a follow on question if I may ed002?
do you think he will make the grade at lfc or can you see this being another major cock up of another young player lfc have made?

{Ed002's Note - H moved to Liverpool because of the wages and promises of Klopp that he would be playing regularly. At least a couple of the other interested sides would have lent him out.}


2.) 14 Nov 2016 11:52:49
On that note Ed02, He has so far played very less, Would the reserve games and U23 would count for the number of games played?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


3.) 14 Nov 2016 14:59:26
He still has plenty of time the season is still young, also he may still be settling in klopp may not deem him ready just yet, you can't remove a players work permit because the manager is doing what's best for the player in the long term.

{Ed002's Note - If he is not being played after commitments made they will indeed remove his work permit.}


4.) 14 Nov 2016 16:22:29
What happens if his work permit is removed eds? Would he still be a liverpool player or? I don't know how this stuff works. I hope the lad gets his chance, promising talent but when we got him we didn't need him imo.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he would still be a Liverpool player.}


5.) 14 Nov 2016 17:04:59
Eds if we suppose send him on loan to another club in the premier league or outside it where he would get regular game time, would the work permit issue still stand? Just want to know what will happen in that scenario.

{Ed002's Note - It would possibly still be an issue in the Premier League as it would look like an attempt by Liverpool to work around the rules. Abroad would not be an issue - nor would playing him which is what promised everyone.}


6.) 14 Nov 2016 17:47:23
I think we should start him versus Southampton. Bit of a test for him, but Lallana and Henderson both played big minutes this week as well. Seems to me he could handle the pressure.


7.) 14 Nov 2016 17:27:56
Thank you. I just hope he gets some game time as I've liked what I've seen of him. May be as the season goes on and players get tired he will get his chance. Also just one more question ed, if we don't play him as was promised would the cancellation of work permit be the only consequence or will Liverpool incur and fines as well?

{Ed002's Note - When it has happened before just work permits have been cancelled.}


8.) 14 Nov 2016 18:45:54
If that were to happen ed002, what would the player do? Once a work permit is revoked, can it ever be re-instated?

{Ed002's Note - The club would send him on loan or sell hiom. They can reapply later but credibility goes.}


9.) 14 Nov 2016 18:47:24
Okay. Thank you for clearing that up.


10.) 15 Nov 2016 03:23:22
Didn't Sebastian Leto have his work permit revoked and we had to load him to olympiakos or something a few years ago?

{Ed002's Note - I think it was simply rejected.}


 

 

09 Nov 2016 09:44:07
I know with the African cup of nations we will be missing mane for about a month or so but I really think loosing matip for that period would have been more devastating to us. mane has settled in really well and would love not to loose any if them but I think matip is different class. I don't wanna say we got him on a free as I don't know what agent fees sign on fees or wages he be on but quite frankly I couldn't give 2 hoots. it was considerably less than total fees city spent on stones and United did on bailey angry arsenal did on mustafi. I know which of them 4 I would be pickin in my team.

kjmainstreet

1.) 09 Nov 2016 10:00:00
point is, our attack is alright, we have people to cover Mane whilst he's away. Matip however is arguably the best defender we have so if it'd of been him going yes, it'd of been a big loss. thankfully he's staying.


2.) 09 Nov 2016 10:12:20
Yea great post mate could not agree more. Mane can be replaced by divok or danny. Two brilliant players in my opinion. Hopefully lucas and lovren can hold the fort in that time!


3.) 09 Nov 2016 10:40:32
Mane can be replaced but his level cannot be matched at this stage anyway!


4.) 09 Nov 2016 11:13:00
Guys,

Matip if I recall what the Eds have said previously, Matip is not going.

Could any of the Eds kindly confirm?

cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know if anything is finalised but he has rejected the opportunity to play for Cameroon for a while.}


5.) 09 Nov 2016 13:48:20
Matip has definitely said that he is not going to ACON.

He wants ti stay put and make the best of the chance he has been given to play for one of Europe's top clubs.

i ddon't know the state or quality of the Cameroon team but this decision definitely benefits us.


6.) 09 Nov 2016 15:03:19
I actually feel Mane is a bigger miss than we might think.
We have quality that can come in but it's not the same quality that Mane brings. His pace alone does so much for Coutihno and Firmino.

The little pockets defenders leave to compensate for his acceleration allows both of them more space, when coupled with their technique, allows incredible opportunities for them in key areas.

For instance, look at the one game where we had no Mane. A 2-0 loss to Burnley. That Liverpool team set a record for the highest possession in game while losing.

They kept it so tight at the back and made us look restricted.

I do realise we will have off days at the front and so this one off result can't be solely based on having no Mane. I believe we have games against Man Utd and Chelsea while he's away at AFCON. I would much prefer a side with Mane in but I have faith our team can cope for a couple games without him, especially with how well they are playing.

Pretty sure Matip has confirmed a while ago he will not be joining Cameroon - which is a nice bonus.


7.) 09 Nov 2016 15:15:59
thank you Ed02

incidentally what tea are you drinking now that Trump is in power?
Wow and just wow!

{Ed002's Note - I like your English Breakfast Tea. I need to get back in to the habit of fruit teas in the afternoons.}


8.) 09 Nov 2016 18:29:39
I trust that Klopp has already planned for Mane`s absence (which doesn`t mean he will sign anyone as that makes no sense at all) . We have Studge and Origi who can deputise for at least four games and I`m sure Klopp will reshape the team to get the best of it again. I`m not worried. And Matip has already said he`s no longer interested in playing for Cameroon anymore, at least for now.

Sturrudge has proved he is dreadful on the wings. Playing him out in the wings is as similar to Walcott occupying the flanks.

4-4-2 diamond while Mane is away. DS and RF up top, PC behind. Will be lethal.


11.) 09 Nov 2016 20:43:59
My point exactly, Andy and we have evidence that this formation works. See EFL Cup vs Spurs and EFL Cup vs Saints last season.


12.) 09 Nov 2016 21:14:26
Klopp doesn't play diamond. I expect a winger to come in January. We are going for the title this season.


13.) 10 Nov 2016 09:50:12
Harry, the last thing we need to do is buy another winger, why? that'd be spending money for spending moneys sake, it'd just be stupid.

I keep seeing you talk about us needing to sign this player and that player in January but we don't need to bring anybody in. We have more than enough quality in the first team to cover Mane's absense. So we go and buy a winger because Mane is out for a month? then what? then the new wingers on the bench at best, we need to give the youngsters a chance, not go and sign more players. If anything we need to offload a couple.


14.) 10 Nov 2016 13:33:06
Harry, you are wrong again. Klopp played a diamond 4-4-2 vs Spurs in the EFL Cup with Studge and Origi up top, vs Saints last season in the EFL Cup with Studge and Origi, and in the second half vs Dortmund with Studge and Origi, all resounding victories so again, you are wrong. What you expect is your opinion and nothing more and I expect that you will be disappointed. Nobody will come in as a month-long stop gap for Mane as that logically makes no sense, as LFC16 mentioned. If someone does come in, it will be someone for the long term and in Jan, those players are not readily available. But I`m sure you`ll be here ranting if we don`t sign anyone because of course, all you talk about is signings with no idea where they will fit in or how they are better than those we already have.

I take on board what you are saying ed001, and I normally agree with most things you say but regardless of fees or who we have bought do you think Hart is an upgrade on mignolet? I agree with what a lot of people say he is English so the players get hyped up and made to be better than what the actualy are and I agree Hart falls into that category but I still think he a good keeper. he seems to me to be a vocal keeper who is respected by his fellow peers, I respect everyone's opinion on this matter and ov course if it was as easy as everyone agreeing we wouldn't have football forums. hope we can agree to maybe disagree on this one ed001?

kjmainstreet

{Ed001's Note - what difference does it make if he is an upgrade on our back up keeper? The question is whether or not he is better than Karius. Sorry but peers respecting him? What does that even mean? That his fellow pros aren't slagging him off? When do you ever hear a current player slag off another current player publicly? Try watching Hart flap and throw the ball into the back of his net repeatedly, then you will see he is the English Mignolet, crap with the ball at his feet, unable to organise a defence and not much of a shotstopper.}

I don't think signing karius is a 'mistake' or anything I jus think our league is a difficult one to get used to and Hart has been a number one at a massive club playing for many years as first choice. he has had adversities throughout his time at city and has come through them. he has the right mentality to succeed and be a winner. as I said in my above post I hope karius proves to be as good as some of the German keepers in recent history. I just think In my opinion that we would b buying a ready made winner in Hart who would have been an upgrade on mignolet. as for ward I think a years loan at a championship/ lower prem team is best. unless klopp made him his number one this season because he needs to be playing regular football.

kjmainstreet

{Ed001's Note - Hart has been number one purely because he is English and they want an English core. 4 managers have been there and not wanted him, surely that should tell you something? All of them didn't think he was good enough but struggled to recruit a replacement, until now. Hart is just not very good. He has done nothing in his career other than been behind a good team so he never had anything to do.}

I think joe Hart would have been an excellent addition to our squad if we didn't buy karius. I haven't seen much of karius but I don't think it right to buy a keeper and stunt his potential development by not playing him much. For that reason I wouldn't buy Hart but if we could have bought Hart at the beginning of the window then I would have went for him if an acceptable package could have been agreed. he very vocal, a leader within the dressing room who has been a number one for 10 years so would know all about the pressures of being in the spotlight all the time. I actually think he a major upgrade on mignolet aswel in all aspects of his game. as things turn out tho we have karius so we should get behind him once he back from injury. who knows he might be an absolute beast?

cheers for your reply ED002 as always is most appreciated. I won't try and ask if we interested or sign anyone today. try enjoy your day guys you ALL do a top job. 😆.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - I would not expect too much to happen with LFC today - hopefully no knee jerk buys. I could see one leaving and a loan or two outbound perhaps. Have a good day.}

cheers for the quick reply ed002 most appreciated. a follow on question if I may ed002?
do you think he will make the grade at lfc or can you see this being another major cock up of another young player lfc have made?

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - H moved to Liverpool because of the wages and promises of Klopp that he would be playing regularly. At least a couple of the other interested sides would have lent him out.}
