Any chance of Lucas Vasqez if Lemar is not done and we sell Coutinho?

Very good player to have but not be like for like replacement.

Good job Ed's.

Cheers.

samikewell

{Ed002's Note - Of course - I have explained that over and over but all we get is dribbling from the Liverpool fans so I don't bother anymore.}


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:43:32
Who is Lucas Vazquez going to replace in the team? Mane or Salah?


2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:49:01
Highly unlikely Sami we are suddenly going to chasing a differant player in the last few hours mate. It was all about 2 players, neither happening.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:03:20
He will get more game time here than RM.

How abt spending Coutinho money for Kovacic and Lucas V from RM?

We would get more and competition.

No defenders because we only play attack.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 18:57:26
Ed02 start a Venmo account, so we can send you money for a few pints because it seems like you are going to need it. Plus when you drunk you repeat yourself anyway.

{Ed002's Note - I don't need the money thanks.}


5.) 31 Aug 2017 19:41:36
Lucas Vazquez really isn't that good. Not better than Mane or Salah and hardly a number 10.


6.) 31 Aug 2017 20:37:42
Whose better than mane right now? That would be very difficult.


7.) 31 Aug 2017 20:56:13
Is there a possibility we might come back for VVD in January if nothing materializes in this window Ed001?
Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


 

 

04 Aug 2017 14:37:26
Ed's

How is the Coutinho situation now?

Do you expect him to be with us this season?

Is there a possibility of Bale if we let Coutinho go?

Cheers.

samikewell

{Ed002's Note - (a) Barcelona would like to buy Coutinho but Klopp doesn't want him soild. (b) I suspect he may not be as he is keen to move and the club have kept putting a price on him. (c) I wouldn't think there is any chance at all.}


1.) 04 Aug 2017 15:45:17
Has our price increased from the €100m euros we quoted PSG earlier in the year, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Various prices have been boucing around but Barcelona will be putting a second offer on the table very soon.}


2.) 04 Aug 2017 17:50:23
We don't want to sell but I think anything over £100 million we may find hard to turn down. £100million and Rakitic?

Baz.


3.) 04 Aug 2017 18:12:55
I rate him very highly, certainly the heartbeat of this young side. I do have to admit though in terms of consistency he still falls behind players like Suarez who could take any game, any challenge, and come out fighting. I can't think of many games Suarez cruised through without some impact for us.

Maybe I'm saying I'd consider that swap :)


4.) 04 Aug 2017 18:36:31
100 mil and rakitic! That would be very hard to turn down. I cannot see them offering that. Although if we are going to be one of the club's directly affected by neymar's big money move then we should drive the hard bargain? . 80 mil plus rakitic. Why not? I would say yes to that. Reluctantly. If he wants to go we should not stop him. But we should have something definite lined up to fill the void if he leaves. My worry with ratikc is his age. He is very nearly 30 and thus on the downhill slide. I think he'd be great though.

{Ed001's Note - we would be mad to take on Rakitic and his huge salary now.}


5.) 04 Aug 2017 17:39:03
Who would you reckon we go for to replace him eds?

{Ed002's Note - Vazquez is a player that Liverpool would consider again as he is versatile - but Real Madrid has re-iterated he is not for sale. Max Max As I have said before, Max Meyer fits the bill of a young attacking midfield player who would fit the bill if Liverpool were to lose Coutinho and he could be a player they may look to - but right now they haven't and another side is chasing him down. Geoffrey Kondogbia is available but I would stay clear. Luan would be the wildcard if someone could resolve his ownership issues.}


6.) 04 Aug 2017 20:12:21
Ah, good point ed.


7.) 04 Aug 2017 23:53:50
I wouldn't mind Manuel Lanzini. Of course, never a "like-for-like" replacement for Coutinho as Couts is in a league of his own, but this late in the transfer window I can't see us being able to sort out a "bigger" signing, especially knowing how painfully slow we are to get transfers done. Coutinho leaving at this stage of preseason would be a huge blow for us as it leaves us little time for a big transfer and because he's looked instrumental in the midfield. Add to that Lallana is out injured and all of a sudden we have very little creativity in the midfield. Lanzini would be in a similar creative mold to Lallana's level I think and plays slight on that left side of midfield like Couts. good player in my eyes.


8.) 05 Aug 2017 01:15:24
Rakitic and LanzinI would be poor recruiting. Rakitic is past it. Too old and over the hill to be of any use. Lanzini simply isn't good enough. He lacks that extra quality that Coutinho has. If we brought these two in we may as well wave a white flag now.


9.) 05 Aug 2017 11:45:34
Have people actually seen these Rakitic and Lanzini types play exactly cos if they have, they would not be proposing them as Couts replacements.

Hi Ed's

Any substance in Jese Rodrigez from PSG rumours?

Think he would be a good addition.

cheers
YNWA.

samikewell

{Ed002's Note - Jese Rodriguez is available (because he has not settled, has been playing badly and has had a dreadful time since arriving in Paris) and has made it clear he wants to return to Spain. If Firmino, Coutinho or Mane were to leave it would make sense - else it makes absolutley zero sense. Right now PSG have shared two approaches for the player - neither of which is Liverpool.}


1.) 29 Dec 2016 09:25:40
Ed why does someone have to leave it's a squad game and we need different options to compete plus looks like we might have European games next season so will need bigger squad.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have a large squad and there are limitations. You cannot simply keep adding players - they will all want to play and Liverpool do not have the money to do that in any case.}

Hi Ed's,

what's the latest on ARDA TURAN?

I was waiting for someone to post on ARDA but looks like everything has gone quiet. Even his agent has gone quiet.

Do you see anyhitng happening with ARDA and Liverpool?

Thanks

samikewell

{Ed001's Note - no.}


1.) 19 Jun 2015 10:44:22
Ed, don't you mean 'NO'

Hi Ed01,

Given how critical were your thoughts on Skrtl, How do you rate Matip now?

We have gone backwards. and Klavan, Matip and Lovern are step down to Skrtl says a lot.

Lovern, being poor atleat wants to fight as a defender but gets 90% wrong but Matip and Klavan seem to be pussies.

Don't want to blame Klavan as he is slow and will not work in this system but Matip thinks he is a xavi and tries over ambituous pass that never succeeds and his defeneding is also very bad.


Would like to know Ed1 from LFC angle and a neutral prespective from Ed25/ Ed2.

Cheers.

samikewell

{Ed001's Note - if you read through I have answered this question numerous times already mate. I have been saying for a while I am not convinced by Matip, but the more I watch him play the less I like what I see.}


1.) 10 Sep 2017 14:10:20
Fair mate.

somtimes we should be careful with what we wish for. Everyone here got pissed with Skrtl and were heaping praise on Matip and getting him on free, were so much of praise on Matip and Klopp.

He also bought Karius and he is making Mignolet look good.

Bought Klavan who is not suited to this system.

And he has bought Ox and god knows what he saw in him that will take us to next level.

Nothing against Klavan or Ox but when we buy should we be looking to improve on what we have and take to next level but they seem to be on par or lower than what we have.

Are the players bad or the fault is in the system? Going 1 man and trailing 2-0, still playing open hoping we outscore.

Is it that difficult to play closed game?

{Ed001's Note - in what way is Karius making Mignolet look good? He has done no such thing and every time he plays has made the team look a lot more confident defensively, unlike Migs. As for Skittles, he was over the hill anyway and had to be replaced, plus he was on big money and wanted more big money to stay. Klavan is just a back up, no idea why so many of you want to keep whining about his buy, you can't get Godin for a back up. You get what you can.}


2.) 10 Sep 2017 14:24:29
This argument is totally flawed because Skrtel is just not better than any of our current choices. We should have been penalised every defending corner when Skrtel was about.


3.) 10 Sep 2017 14:25:01
If Klopp thinks Sakho was a mere back up to Lovren who could be replaced by a slow moving Klavan, Then problem lies with Klopp. Klavan shoukd have never brought. And with Matip it's just like typical liverpool fans. Free signing means bargain lol!


4.) 10 Sep 2017 14:33:25
To improve the team you should always try and buy better than what you already have, then the player you have replaced becomes back up.


5.) 10 Sep 2017 14:47:42
I will still prefer skrtyl than Matip, Klavan and Lovern.

At least he is better at shirt pulling than others without doubt and is better overall in relation to what we have now.

Cheers.


6.) 10 Sep 2017 15:04:10
Our problem is not necessarily the personel.
Klopp has a system which leaves the defence wide open all the time. Ok our defenders are not great but they don't have much chance when there's a gaping hole in front of them for opponents to exploit. A lot of the time we are playing with the formation 2 defenders and 8 attackers.
Either Klopp tweaks his system or our defence will always look poor regardless of who's playing.


7.) 10 Sep 2017 15:21:40
Cbs should be scary. Ours aren't simply. Klavan has played well for liverpool but was well out of his depth yesterday. I cannot understand why we signed him. Liverpool won't win the league until we have some top top cbs. Mat hummers and vvd would be great. We need to offer some big money for some big cbs. It will pay dividends.


8.) 10 Sep 2017 15:34:47
Well said Ron. Let's not forget we were up against a very very good city side.


9.) 10 Sep 2017 16:46:10
Thing is ed, I get that Klavan is back up, but would you really play him in a game against City rather than Gomez or Lovren (given that both Lovren and Gomez were both on the bench)? You know he's liable to make at least one critical error which results in a goal every game. By picking him ahead of both of them says he's more than just back up.

{Ed001's Note - he was not picked ahead of both of them, it is rotation. Would I do so? No, but I do not have access to the data to know if Lovren was fit enough to start after the internationals.}


10.) 10 Sep 2017 17:49:36
I didn't think Maldini was scary but he's one of the best defenders I've ever seen.


11.) 10 Sep 2017 21:52:21
Skrtel was hapless and I'm glad he's no longer here. As for the poster who thinks Karius makes Migs lokk good, you need to stop using sun glasses to watch games. Karius is a better GK than Migs and that is clear. He is better with his feet (Arsenal game notwithstanding), more suited to play the high defensive line system due to his agility as a sweeper-keeper, more agile on his line and more authoritative with crosses unlike he was before.

Karius just needs to get a long run in the team for him to either show that or not. Migs has had his run and it has been hopeless, overall. Why we persist with him, is still beyond me. As for the selection, we don't have the fitness info that these coaches have so we have to trust their judgement instead of just mouthing off that "why did this or that player not play" w/ o knowing the in's and out's behind that decision.


12.) 11 Sep 2017 11:26:29
Our defence were shocking yesterday but we are not the only team that city are going to spank this season

OK, this is hard for me to say. city are bloody good aren't they!

If you talk to people inside the game most people will say lovren is our best defender. Perhaps they don't watch the boys week in week out as we do but I think that's the general concensus. Not one of the back five were any good yesterday. I was surprised to hear pundits on motd talking about how vvd and lovren would be great together. Matip looks good against lesser opposition because he can pick a pass and he looks composed. When the going gets tough it is lovren who is willing to fight. And let's not forget, lovren has to cover for moreno when he goes running.

Look, we were away, at the best side in the league (with world's best manager) we lost our best player and still tried to play football. The score line flatters city because I don't think they are that much better than us. Maybe better but not five goals better.

I think we've just been beaten by the best team in the league and one of top five teams in Europe.

Liverpool can build the best attacking team in the world but if we don't have a good enough base/ defence then it's pointless.

Despite what people say, I think klopp is a fantastic manager and a clever bloke. He will learn from this, I bet it doesn't happen again.

So much of this summers transfers are geared toward breaking the so called lesser teams down it looks like we forgot about playing the big teams. I still think liverpool could do with a true cf. We missed Adam lallana big time yesterday. We missed Clyne also, taa may end up a better player but Clyne has pl experience and for me is still the best RB at the club (except maybe Milner who I wish had started at RB yesterday) and of course we missed coutinio. In the big games ads and pipco really come to life.

Not the end of the world guys, I still believe our first eleven is as strong as anyone's when ALL players are fit. Our best players last year were pc ads and mane and we were without them all for most of the game.

Karius needs a decent run.


13.) 11 Sep 2017 11:28:32
Karius is so much better than mignolet. Even if it is just to settle the back four.

You do realise that when a defender has an option to make a pass back to the keeper and see flapper in the sticks they will hesistae and the rest of the tram will go into panic.

That's why players like has hesistae to make a simple pass back to the keeper. They have no confidence, not just in his passing ability but also wether they will be given it straight back in a more pressured position.

Hi Ed's

Would be interestef to know your thoughts on some signings that did not go through.

R Mahrez - LCFC had set reasonable price on him and none of the top clubs showed interest than Roma.

He wanted specific club and they did not want him?

Is there any specific reason why clubs did not show or follow up with their interest?

Was the set price on higher side for PL player of the year recently?

Any other injury related reason or Attitude?


Funny thing we see OX sold at 35 or 40, Kyle walker at 40+ and no one took a chance with Mahrez.

samikewell

{Ed025's Note - hes a very good player sami but a whole heap of trouble mate, most of the big clubs would not touch him with a barge pole because hes a sulker and a troublemaker, he was instrumental in the sacking of ranieri and performs when he feels like mate..


1.) 05 Sep 2017 01:37:57
Very unfortunate because he comes across like artist painting canvass with the ball while all others are hard grafters.

Tnx Ed25.


2.) 05 Sep 2017 04:09:19
I'm not sold on Mahrez, he's had one brilliant season in his career in amongst a bunch of average seasons. He's clearly a brilliant player on his day but I think he goes missing too often to succeed at a really big club.


3.) 05 Sep 2017 09:07:48
Mahrez's talent is not in question. Everything else, is.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 21:06:53
Ed2,

Any update on Mahrez?

If you get him, it will be wonderdul to see Hazard and him together.

Cheers.

25 Aug 2017 18:38:55
Hi Ed's

The way we are setup to play by Klopp, I some times wonder if we really need defenders.

Why not replace the center backs with utility attacking midfielders?

It will make watching LFC more exiciting and we would end being watched most in history.

A new chapter in football will begin with no defenders at this rate.


Cheers.

samikewell

1.) 25 Aug 2017 18:49:19
Wouldn't be a bad idea haha, like Eds said we have a world class manager so who knows what he's going to do to make us the best. YNWA.


2.) 25 Aug 2017 19:03:54
I didn't realise we had been playing with any defenders in the past. Klopp might even attempt to put a goalkeeper in as well 😉.


3.) 25 Aug 2017 19:10:52
I thought that's we were doing already?
Moreno, lovren and migs can hardly be called defenders lol.


4.) 25 Aug 2017 19:13:39
I don't think I've ever read on this website where any of the Eds say Klopp is a world class manager.

Rodgers 2.0 can't address the back line efficiently.


 

 

14 Aug 2017 19:47:04
Hi Ed's,

Is there a link or article which tells/ lists what channels / websites we can watch LFC matches live legally?

I am in the US here and can't seem to get this resolved.

NBCSN does come on few stream services but are are not available with Sling Blue in NYC area. Think it is the same with Fubo TV.

LFC GO also doesn't show live matches but only recording.

Any info or pointers would be helpful.

Cheers.

samikewell

1.) 14 Aug 2017 20:06:17
try ronaldo7.net.


2.) 14 Aug 2017 20:11:43
Hi Sam,

I had Fubotv for over a year in which I watched La Liga and Serie A both through Bein Sports. I think the new packages that they are selling include NBCSN, FS1, and FS2, which would cover the premier league and champions league.

Playstation Vue is also an option.

Both should have some kind of promotional free week trial.

Hope this helps.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 20:21:13
Liveonsat. com lists the channels for all matches.


4.) 14 Aug 2017 20:35:00
I have sling blue, and I am in NYC area I can confirm I get NBCSN, I had to add CNBC separately for the one off game that is broadcasted there.


5.) 14 Aug 2017 20:55:25
Download the universal TV app on an apple device great quality when connected to wifi.


6.) 16 Aug 2017 20:43:09
Thanks all.

Sling Blue seems to be best bet for now @ 25 per month and next is Fubo at 34 or 35.

Just thinking is it worth for just one channel?

Like to see 34 / 35 games of LFC to spend 300 $ per year.

Cheers.

We can all expect Migs and Karius competing to give us comedy highlights in both PL and CL.

Hope Ward takes a clue and keeps us entertained in the cup games.

We should let Couts go and grant his wish.

Not like we are doing charity as we are getting 140 odd.

set an example to other clubs that we let players go if we get right fee.

He will be not happy here and this is a free world.

Ed01 - please give Brenda bashing a break.

Fans were overly critical of him when he was here and Klopp is getting there slowly.

Wonder if Klopp's profile has already taken a beating.

Any big club would be vary of considering him given his current status with us.

Hope he gets it correct sooner and leads us to atleast some title. We will take anything at this rate.

Cheers.

samikewell

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't bashing him, not that it is anything to do with you. Brendan deserved the criticism because he takes all the credit and refuses to take the blame. I was merely pointing out that no one was criticising Brendan for defending his players as he never did that. But, if I did choose to bash him, then that is my choice and nothing to do with you.}

Good thing is he is creating those chances himself and has ability to take on and beat a man or two.

Heart breaking thing is when he misses some sitters. We will get used to see more of this.

But the opposition will have him, Mane, Couts and to some extent Firminio marked. All others they don't even bother.
