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.

If both go, are we still interested in Timo Werner, Ed?


{Ed001's Note - the interest is still there but I doubt he will be sold before the summer.}

Ed, just to add something to the left back thread, it was clear we were after a young left back following our pursuit of Ben Chilwell in the summer.

With numerous clubs circling and him not being on a professional contract yet, do you see us being interested in Josh Tymon of Hull City?


{Ed001's Note - he has been recommended to us, so I would expect us to be interested. I never realised he was a left back though.}

In fairness Ed, Schalke and Dortmund are massive local rivals so I couldn't see Schalke selling them any of their decent players. It would be like Everton selling one of their best players to Liverpool. Hopefully they are more open to offers from other clubs.


{Ed002's Note - Right but that is what happened and maybe they will be - but Liverpool has made no approach.}

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.

I'd go for Dolberg as well. May as well pay £30-40m for him now when he will be going for £100m next year.

I thought you mentioned the other day that Liverpool may have had a look at Dolberg Ed.


{Ed002's Note - Looking at a player is far from any interest being sjhown. Clubs look at hundreds perhaps thousands of players each year. Interest is declared in far fewer. You can forget Dolberg.}

I've got to be honest. I don't really see the problem with "tapping up" except for in extreme cases when clubs take it too far. I think we took it too far with Van Dijk with the whole meeting in Blackpool and leaks to the press.

However I don't see the issue with clubs making contact with players to see if they would be interested in joining them and making them a personal offer. To expect this not to happen and for clubs to not make any contact or offer to a player until they have the permission of their club kind of reminds me of the old-fashioned not asking a girl if she wants to marry out until you have her father's permission.

These are grown adults in employment. They can make up their own minds. If another club has persuaded a player to come and join them, it is up to the club they are with to persuade them to stay. Football is a very public industry so a lot of the time you are going to know if big clubs are interested in a player.

It has happened with players we have owned and we have done it ourselves in the past. I have complained about it happening in neither of these cases.


{Ed001's Note - I give up. Morals are dead. If you can't play by the rules then don't play the game and this kind of moronic justification is sickening. Cheating is not ok and if you think it is then you are no better than Lance Armstrong. No one needs to tap up a player. It is not asking them if they are interested or you would just ask their agent ffs. If you are having to speak to them personally, then there is a problem.}
