Hi Eds,

I read somewhere that Max Meyer's contract runs until 2018, meaning in January he will only have 18 months left.

Apparently Klopp was interested in the summer. Do you see us looking to him as a potential wing signing, either it in January or the summer?

Also, if Sturridge were to leave to get more game time, are we scouting Kasper Dolberg, be it as a replacement or just in general? I only ask because I've seen him a bit this season and I think he's ace.

Appreciate the great work you guys do.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool made no efforts for Meyer in the summer and are not showing any interest now. A move to England seems unlikely until he has a walk-in opportunity at first team level - and I am not so sure that would be possible at this time. He does however fit the bill of a young attacking midfield player which prompted previous bids from Chelsea (who would have sent him on loan for one season before integrating him in to the squad) and Fiorentina in 2014. Schalke 04 do not want to sell the player and made it clear to Spurs and Milan who were showing an interest this past summer that any move was unlikely. The player has shared his desire to play in Spain with Real Madrid or Barcelona. Other sides such as Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Arsenal watched him last season but had no real interest.

Several English sides are amongst those that have been looking at Kasper Dolberg, one has held discussions with Ajax and one other has decalred an interest. None of this involves Liverpool at this time.}

Thanks for the reply Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Hi Eds,

I remember a couple of years ago we had first option on Will Hughes of Derby. As deals for Zielinski and Dahoud are looking less likely, would he be a player we would consider for centre midfield.

Personally I always thought he was a classy player and I think Klopp could do great with him.


{Ed002's Note - There was no option and interest seems to have long gone.}

Hi eds,

Do we still have interest in Jordy Clasie? Looks like he will finally move this summer.



{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was all set for Southampton in the summer, I was told it was all sorted in January as a replacement for Cork, but put off until the summer. Our interest was back when Rodgers first took over and we have kept tabs but there has been no sign of a deal being attempted in the summer.}

Thanks ed. Destined to be one of those players who will be bought cheap and then be worth a fortune the next season. I should have known with our policy that we wouldn't want to buy him at a reasonable price :)

{Ed001's Note - you never know what can happen, until a deal is completed fully anything can happen. I have seen clubs announce signings after a player has done the medical etc, only for the player to then turn round and sign for someone else. Personally I wouldn't be surprised if Southampton got gazumped on him, as there will be a lot of midfielders moving this summer as the dominos tumble following the Pogba move.}

HI Ed,

Do you know if we have an interest in ...........


{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page - this is the Liverpool page.}

If Chelsea are interested in Raheem, personally I would love for us to ask for Bamford as part of the deal. Very prolific, despite being in the championship and more chance of getting us goals than Origi, Lambert, Borini, Balotelli or Ings for that matter.

Any chance of interest in him, eds?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 20 May 2015 21:45:42
If anyone wants Raheem they pay what we want or hw sits in the reserves!

This has been a total mess! From all involved. Were the only club that runs its affairs out in the public.

2.) 21 May 2015 06:56:09
What would sitting him in the reserves accomplish? I can't see one benefit in it at all.

Left back is interesting, Ed001. Do you not think Klopp should give Adam Lewis a go next season? Is he not ready yet?

Where do you stand on another player who can play across the front three in case something happens to one of the main three/ rotation/ etc.?


{Ed001's Note - I would send him on loan for more game time. We have Ox, Wilson and Woodburn to cover the front 3.}

No problem Ed1. Realistically it is hard to monitor firsthand every player we could be interested in so I guess we base some of our judgement on sources we trust.


{Ed001's Note - I used to try and make an effort to watch as many as I could, but these days I don't have time with all the research for the articles, as well as writing them.}

Thanks for the reply Ed1. I would agree with you on Kovacic this season. When I saw some of the games he played in last season I thought he doing alright, just my opinion though and I didn't see every game he played in.


{Ed001's Note - I didn't see him much last season either, even while in Spain as the coverage of Real Madrid is just sickening out there. I am just relaying what I was told as to why our previously held interest has waned, rather than giving my opinion on him. Sorry I should have made that clear, my mistake. I normally try and make it clear when it is not my opinion, apologies.}

Thoughts on Kovacic/ Ceballos Ed1? And out of interest have we shown interest in Kovacic (I know we have Ceballos) . Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - not in Kovacic, who has not performed well since moving to Madrid. Ceballos we have, I am sceptical on him, never really impressed me as anything special. I have not seen a lot of him though, so I could have just missed what he offers.}

Milner has been playing in a lot of important games recently. I don't see why he would want to swaps nights like last night for mid-table or even potential relegation scraps in the Premier League.


{Ed001's Note - because he wants to play every week. He knows there is a good chance that Keita + A N Other midfielder pushes him down the pecking order next season. Though I expect him to probably stay next season and see how it goes then.}

I don't really get why Milner would want to drop down a level to get regular first team football. He is playing regularly enough for us. Sure he might play a proportionally higher number of available games at a smaller team but in terms of the actual number of games per season, it could be more or less the same. We have European games to offer as well as a greater chance of having a longer domestic cup run (albeit not this season lol) .

Added to that there is the prospect of winning things and taking part in truly memorable matches. Milner started the Porto game - why would he want to swap a night like that for a potential relegation battle? He has also retired at international level so it is not like he needs to start every game in order to get into the England squad.

I notice a lot of players at bigger clubs do this and often it seems like it's as broad as it's long due to the extended fixture lists they have.

I don't know why you have to be so crotchety Ed002. Jayden23 makes a fair point. Origi has been given loads of minutes in the past - not happening. Solanke has come off the bench a fair few times this season. I would never have signed him and he's been given more minutes that I would have given him. You would have expected him to get at least one goal in those appearances off the bench but he hasn't even done that. Ings is a difficult one. For me, before his injury he proved himself the be a decent Premier League striker. But ultimately he was signed in the Rodgers era when the standard of signings was a lot lower. He needs regular game time and patience and I don't think we can afford to give him that.

None of the other Eds react the way you do. I appreciate it's your website but I would suggest you save the snappy posts for someone posting genuine abuse.


{Ed002's Note - Origi is out on loan this season and is a young winger - hardly someone expected to be prolific. If you really expected Ings and Solanke to be "prolific" this season you clearly know near zip about the game at all. So as I say, use your power to abuse the owners on Twitter - we already know direct abuse of the primary owners wife by Liverpool fans gets his attention. Make it clear you want these wasters out of the club.}

I'd agree with you on the positions we need but for now I'm happy to see how Karius does until the end of the season.

Personally I would go for Weiser at right back, Kovacic for deep lying playmaker, Pulisic for another option across the attack and Brandt as Coutinho's replacement.

I once served Big Sam when I was a waiter at a golf club. He was so rude. He truly is a horrible man.
