Eds, any news on Cans contract? I saw a report that he's willing to sign if wages are met? I hope he stays, I think him and keita could form a long term partnership and with our attack, if we sort out our defense I think we could be real contenders!

On a side note. Since it's nearly impossible to use the search function for "can" can we all agree to use Ecan or some other name when referring to can?

lfcohio

{Ed002's Note - it remains as was - he wants out unless Liverpool sign up to x and y. Can’s name is pounouncec Chuun. Maybe that would work. Or replace him with Goretzka.}


1.) 18 Nov 2017 07:59:08
Can I ask what x and y are? Are they to do with playing time?

{Ed002's Note - Critically money and a low termination clause.}


2.) 19 Nov 2017 08:55:10
Specifically HIGH money and LOW release clause. Oh for the optimism of youth!

{Ed001's Note - it is not as high as you would think, he would get more by moving. And the release clause is much more than we would get if he just left in summer. Not sure that it is that optimistic personally, his agent is just making sure Can can get out if he is pushed into the background.}


3.) 19 Nov 2017 12:44:26
My understanding is that he wants 150,000 per week and that the release clause is somewhere between 25,000 and 30,000.


4.) 19 Nov 2017 14:11:27
If he leaves in summer, I doubt Juve can give him 150k/ wk. maybe Citeh can trump that. But he will leave on free which is crazy.

If I am negotiating, I will put certain margin of trade off to salary and sell on clause. Higher salary means higher sell on clause. Can will. have to choose. E. g I can pay you 100k/ wk which 50k/ wk less than what you want but I can lower sell on clause say from 35mil to 30mil.

{Ed001's Note - why would you doubt that? Clearly you have no idea about the financial situation at Juve. They pay high wages and can easily afford that.}


5.) 21 Nov 2017 07:00:47
To be fair to him and/ or his agent they're going about this in a better way to the club than a certain team mate. Maybe some people just have a better understanding about not burning bridges.


 

 

28 Oct 2017 16:15:52
Eds, how close is ings from making his way back into the first team? Do you think he has a role in our future? I hope so. I think he's definitely better than AOC.

lfcohio

{Ed002's Note - I suspect a loan in January is his best bet to be honest Ohio. May make the bench before then but Klopp prefers Firmino and Sturridge with Solanke also ahead of him - and Origi is to come back next year by what I hear wanting to fight for a start.}


1.) 28 Oct 2017 16:43:07
Give it a rest for one day Lfcohio. We are currently winning 3.0 and you are on giving Aoc a hard time when he's looked alright last few appearances and doesn't even play in same position as Ings! As for ings I agree with ed002 a loan makes sense and wish him all the best as showed great determination.


2.) 28 Oct 2017 21:54:59
I like AOC. He may not be a game-changer, but he is solid and does the basics well. This is something that can't be said about the majority of the rest of the team recently. He rarely gives the ball away. He is willing to go past his man, and usually does, he looks up before he puts a cross in, aims for a red shirt, and usually puts it in this direction and out of reach of their keeper. That's good enough for me.

Great result today. And we scored from a corner!


 

 

16 Apr 2017 04:04:27
Ed's, is there any chance of us getting Hart? I'm really really hoping the answer is an emphatic no. I don't think he's ever been good and is only comparable to migs at best. Do forget, Hart has made a meal of things with good defenders in front of him week in week out. Mignolet has yet been afforded that opportunity since moving to Liverpool. We haven't had a good defense in years and any time we start to put one together, it's decimated by injuries, suspensions etc etc. I really hope it's a no, but lately it seems to be that if I don't want it, it happens!

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - no, Hart was watched a few times and made more clangers than Peter Firmin (sorry you might not get that reference but me ma will!). Interest in him has nosedived with only a few left with any interest, luckily, right now anyway, only the blue half of Merseyside are still showing any.}


1.) 16 Apr 2017 11:39:36
when you have robles in goal, joe hart is bound to be seen as a upgrade!


2.) 16 Apr 2017 13:55:19
Peter Firmin, that's a soup dragon of a response, lol. Brilliant!


3.) 18 Apr 2017 19:38:07
Hart is pants and his tenure at Torino shows it. They will be glad to see the back of him come this summer.


4.) 19 Apr 2017 06:47:59
I don't think people should worry about all these keepers they don't rate coming in. One look at the way Karius was treated and the contempt so many fans show for pretty much every keeper around bar a handful LFC couldn't even dream of signing, will put them all off. So Mignolet and Karius for next season, unless Migs gets sick of it and takes advantage of the interest his game time will have created.


 

 

09 Nov 2015 18:59:03
Ed's, any news on Sakho?

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - nothing confirmed, but it does not look good right now.}


1.) 09 Nov 2015 19:46:42
A statement from the French Football Federation read: "Mamadou Sakho, who suffered a sprained right knee during Liverpool's game against Crystal Palace, has been forced to withdraw for France's upcoming international friendly games.

This came from Skysports.


2.) 10 Nov 2015 02:25:36
Sounds like good news that Sakho not playing the international. Could be blessing in disguise.


 

 

19 Sep 2015 03:46:32
Ed's is there any truth to the news report that Rodgers was told he needed 7 points from three games to save his job. Which means he's as good as gone since we lost?

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - none.}

Ed's, it's far from over, but of the current teams in relegation (Cardiff, Fulham, Huddersfield as of today) are there any players you think might be worth a go on the relatively cheap?

lfcohio

{Ed002's Note - So you think it a good idea to replace players from a team at the top of the league with players from relegated sides?}


1.) 17 Mar 2019 12:51:26
Worked with robbo 🤭.


2.) 17 Mar 2019 12:56:32
Well in Benny! 😂 oh, cheeky.
Good point though.


3.) 17 Mar 2019 13:07:22
And partly Shaqiri (for first half of season)


4.) 17 Mar 2019 13:10:37
Robbo, Wijnaldum and Shaqiri were all signed from relegated sides so I don't think there's any problem with that (okay, slight caveat, Shaq's level has dropped in recent months) .


5.) 17 Mar 2019 13:26:13
Mooey can't spell his name, Aaron is first name I think. Huddersfield lad. I'm not saying he would be a starter and I know we have lots of cms but he has that attacking flair that our cms lack bar keita, lallana and milner. I just think he would bring a new aspect to the team.

Also shurrle from Fulham. Had a poor season but is a great player with bags of potential. Would provide cover for lots of positions.

And Ryan sessegnon. Would be a great back up for robbo although the lad has so much promise I can't see him wanting to play second fiddle.

{Ed002's Note - This would be to replace Keita? Or who? Would Sessegnon move to sit on the bench? A possible Mane replacement I suppose.}


6.) 17 Mar 2019 13:34:55
Ryan sessegnon would be my pick if he was happy to be a squad player. Bags of potential there, can play lb or could rotate with either winger.

{Ed002's Note - Another £50M squad player? He will move somewhere that wants him.}


7.) 17 Mar 2019 13:42:30
That's a fair point ed, thought we might have been able to snipe him for cheaper than that. Just figured he would be a good option to have as well as add to English players in squad but the kid should be trying to get regular game time which we couldn't offer him.


8.) 17 Mar 2019 14:11:16
In response to Ed's 002, you're saying that among the three teams and 36+/ - players playing top flight football week in week out there aren't any players even worth looking at simply because they're in a relegation battle? I wonder where you would draw the line for looking at a player? If a team is one point out of relegation are there players worth looking at? How about 2? To insinuate there aren't individual quality players in a team sport seems nonsensical to me. And no, I'm not saying they need to be starters, but perhaps squad players or depth? We have an aging milner, low depth on the wing backs, and obviously (pending catastrophy) going do be in the champions league next year and could use quality and depth next season. Surely if there is a bargain we'd want to take advantage (like shaqiri and Robertson) . Just thought it would be a fun talking point at the very least but I sure hope our scouts aren't so pretentious and are willing to look at talent regardless of league or position in the table. After all, vvd was playing in Scotland not long ago and I think we can all agree that's a much weaker league. or mahrez that was playing in league 2 not long ago.

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth the bother quite frankly. Liverpool are doing really well and are top of the league, and they have some very good youngsters coming through. Now would be a great time to start listing which of the players and youngsters you want to move on to replace with players from relegated teams. Every week I read of the fans, win or lose, who want players out of the club. From my perspective the club should do no more than a little bit of refinement - but what do I know.}


9.) 17 Mar 2019 16:42:35
I think there are some limited opportunities with clubs lower down to pick up someone who is good value.

However my view and I hold to it is that we need to strengthen the overall squad and have some other game changers. I'm not convinced the up and coming kids are ready to simply be on the bench and change games.

For me I'd get a quality RB, have TAA as options for RB and midfield, Id get a striker to replace Sturridge and also some legs in midfield plus the big buy of the summer a world class attacking midfielder. Do we need much else?


10.) 17 Mar 2019 18:59:18
id like us to finally bring mitrovic in to fulfil Ed02s prophecy!

plus we need the backup in the attacking third!


11.) 17 Mar 2019 18:31:22
I’m sorry Ed02 but why does buying a player mean they are a squad player can’t they play or push for a place? Sanchez is 300k a week squad player? Mahrez a 50 million squad player? These two barely play, yet we play the same three week in week out, and don’t really have an option of that calibre to rotate with, or make an impact off the bench. I know Sanchez hasn’t made any sort of impact, but they still bought him knowing they had Rashford martial Lukaku Lingard mata.
To fight on all fronts you need a squad, not just an eleven, so why is having options up front an issue. I’m sure Sturridge will be gone, and maybe ings Permanently, so we really only have shaq and Origi to rotate or come on.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United and Manchester City are in a different place to Liverpool. Sanchez is constraining MU for FFP. Manchester City has players who are pissed because they are not playing. I guess you cannot see the big pictuire and asume you expect Brewster sold?}


12.) 17 Mar 2019 22:52:13
At the start of the season we had ings, Solanke Sturridge and Origi as strikers - and I know that’s too many - now we have two left, with one maybe both leaving. Brewster hasn’t had 90 mins of prem football yet, and whilst I want us to develop youth and have a pathway to the first team, we can’t bank on him being good enough to come in for Firmino if he was out. Okay, at the moment, we would bring in Origi and he has done well enough for me, considering the limited minutes he has had. I also understand that city probably have too many options in attack. I imagine sane is completely happy with his game time either. But still, god forbid we lost one of the front three for an extended period, we are losing a lot of quality with our replacements. Hence it’s an area I think we need to address, and don’t see it as one in one out. I’m not saying a 80 million pound player, but if we did buy someone of quality as a striker or winger, I think they’d get enough minutes to be satisfied in their first season, and allow us to rotate a little more when needed.


13.) 18 Mar 2019 15:41:39
Replacements for Migs and Moreno Hessle, neither will want to waste another year of their careers on our bench.


 

 

25 Oct 2018 02:49:40
Ed's, salahs body language, even after scoring, makes him seem unhappy. Do you think (or know) if he's unhappy. I think he's looked sick/ unhealthy at times too. Any reason to worry or does he just need some time in the sun?

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - he will be fine mate.}


1.) 25 Oct 2018 05:20:15
it was more a sigh of relief after scoring really. could have score 20 by the time he scored. He was going offside a lot and that happens when you are very desperate to score some goal. Eagerness gets you and that must have been frustrating for him. It was probably just him not liking his performance till then.


2.) 25 Oct 2018 06:26:12
Hate the couch psychology game. but on pure aesthetics was thinking salah has been looking a bit gaunt and pale lol rekon he just doesn't look too fresh.


3.) 25 Oct 2018 07:55:59
Check out his Instagram, he seemed pretty healthy on his jet ski!


4.) 25 Oct 2018 19:35:40
OP, you're reading too much into things. Players don't celebrate all the time esp. those who are battling form on the pitch and have issues off it with Salah not being fully healthy and stuff with his country's FA. He's good, man. He'll be fine.


 

 

19 Jul 2018 18:41:24
Ed's, seeing ward to Leicester. Why didn't klopp rate him? Everything I saw of him, he seemed to be better than both migs and karius and if they were given time at no. 1, it seemed like he should have as well and never did. Was he not as good as I thought/ saw on the few times I saw him? Were there other issues? Best of luck to him though, hope he has a great career.

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - Klopp preferred Karius.}


1.) 19 Jul 2018 19:02:23
Wowza. Ward always looked solid. Rekon he will surprise a few over at lcfc.


2.) 19 Jul 2018 20:11:34
I think Ward will prove a very shrewd purchase by Leicester and the fee will look a steel in a couple of years. Good luck to the lad, I think he is a good keeper.


 

 

10 Jun 2018 15:39:24
Feel sorry for the Ed's for dealing with all the armchair managers on here. Half of them wouldn't have known who fekir was till we announced our interest and now it's the end of the world the deal is off or delayed. Question for all you sky is falling, end of the worlder's out there. Don't you think there would have to be a pretty good reason to back our of a 50 million investment that was that far along? Whether it be medical issues or other issues, you don't just pull the plug that late in the game without good reason. And if Lyon pulled the plug, there's not much we can do about that. We will have other Target and we need the right players. We don't need to buy players for the sake of buying players.

lfcohio

1.) 10 Jun 2018 20:13:53
Lfcohio, it is the same tripe we read whenever we have a bad result. These people are nothing but spoiled, self entitled brat. Now where they get this attitude from, I will never know cos it's not like LFC have been ripping it up in the PL lately cos news flash: We were a mess until Klopp arrived and gave us back our dignity. Like you said, a good no. of them prolly never heard of Fekir before last week and cos he cost 50m plus, they prolly myopically, think he is a great player cos you know, cost is an indication of how good a player can be. Now, they are losing their marbles cos we walked away from a deal that presented potential, long term liability for the club and all they can do is lose their stuff? It says a lot more about them than id does about the good people who run our club.


 

 

04 Jun 2018 00:14:18
Ed's, who do you rate more, oblak or alisson? And why?

lfcohio

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't work like that, they are totally different players. You pick the keeper that suits the style of play you want. If you want a stay-at-home keeper, who will just keep goal but is not going to be comfortable sweeping up, then Oblak is the better bet. If you want a keeper who will play the sweeper-keeper role, is quick off his line with excellent distribution, then you go for Alisson.}


1.) 04 Jun 2018 06:19:42
Interestingly, although I rate Clemence as Liverpool's top goalie ever, I would choose Brucie for our nets today.
He's be absolutely perfect for us.
I wonder how much he'd be worth these days?


2.) 04 Jun 2018 07:37:13
Brave shout juicer, I too loved brucey but I'd still take clem over him, even in today's team. Although I understand your argument I think you always want the best shot stopper. That's my keeper philosophy. It has to be balanced with decent anticipation and distribution but overall I want my keeper hard to beat. To daunt strikers.


3.) 04 Jun 2018 07:38:02
Although Bruce would be a MASSIVE addition to our team today. A MASSIVE improvement.


4.) 04 Jun 2018 07:50:12
That is said with hindsight though. Bruce's first 6 months were not convincing at all and in today's world of trial by social media the fans would have hounded him out by the January window.


5.) 04 Jun 2018 09:34:26
Allisson has a pretty poor game yesterday. And yes I know he kept a clean sheet. Distribution was poor, kicked the ball out a number of times and slow off his line. Not great. Can anyone tell me if this is an isolated incident? He didn’t stand out when we played Roma and now this? I have not had the pleasure or luxury of watching him in Serie A but I am aware their league is played at a lower intensity and slower pace. Is he really the messiah? Or is he another case of “when are we going to get a proper GK” in 12 months time? For perspective De Gea hardly looked world class this weekend. It is just the lot of a GK I suspect. No hiding place.


6.) 04 Jun 2018 10:20:56
A harsh
More than that I have watched Butland consistently over the past 24 months and so does everyone. He is a proper “ FLAPPER” and we have 2 of our own who does it! I would stay miles away from a keeper that does the same as Mignolet and Karius!

I'll go on record saying I did not and do not rate gini. He often goes missing, he's not creative, his passing is ok at best and he's not a good tackler. I'm hoping to see him as a sub in the coming seasons. He certainly isn't good enough to be a starter. I watched every game this season and never saw a performance that warranted all the praise he's gotten. He's mediocre at best. Just a body to throw on the field.

If we sign ox, I'm going to be insistent on one of 3 things. A director of football to oversee transfers 2. A new manager or 3. At the very least, a visit to the optometrist. What a sad, underwhelming signing. Would be better with youth or just handing me the 25 million. Dumb.

Anything but Nike. Would rather we just use body paint than get into a deal with them. Their kits are utterly atrocious. They're all the same and even when they're 'different' it's the same. Would much rather stick with new balance. I can't think of a single kit Nike has made that I thought was even ok. and I'd be happy to hear some examples to prove me wrong.

Gotta be firminio. His numbers this season (goals, assists, tackles) we're incredible. Not to mention his work rate. If he's not in the team, Salah doesn't break the record. Don't get me wrong, Salah is great. But he could also be replaced. Firminio is something special and we'd be happy pressed to find another player that can contribute as much as he does. Suarez had the best of both firminio and Salah. But he left and so for me, it has to be firminio. Plus firminio has a much better attitude and team mentality.

Why would you ever want Nike as a sponsor? Better run around in trash bags than those horrendous kits. they've never made a good looking kit for any side in and sport, ever. Horrible company. As for Adidas. yawn. same crap year after year.
