Hi eds

Is there any foundation in the rumour flying around that Benteke has agreed personal terms with Besiktas?

savvyxone

{Ed002's Note - Whilst Eris Kismet agreed a personal package with Besiktas after Crystal Palace stepped back and Juventus declared that they had no interest and asked him to stop bothering them about Benteke, Besiktas want a loan with an option of buying which might not suit Liverpool. Any agreement to buy him would need Liverpool to reduce the significant asking price considerably.}

Is it true is it true?

Balotelli's agent is in talks with Jiansu Suning in regards to a €15M per year move?

Or has there been any interest in him at all so far

Great news if it turned out to be true

Fingers and toes crossed.

Any news on this one Eds?

{Ed002's Note - His agent is not in China nor having any direct discussions with any interested clubs although there have been enquiries from Turkey and from China - but there is no firm offer. His agent has been in Naples and Turin dealing with matters surrounding three other players and is coming to England to see three clubs about potential transfers.}

Hi Eds

Various reports in Italian media just appearing online of reported interest in Sturridge from Napoli for €25m.

Surely we are not going to sell now after all the drama of his injuries and recovery times?

would the club be open to offers or will Liverpool wrap him in a bubble for the summer
(hopefully he gets through the Euros)

Or is this complete tripe?

Personally really hope it's just made up nonsense.

savvyxone

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Napoli.}


1.) 15 Mar 2016 23:31:29
Has anyone shown interest in Sturridge ed?

{Ed002's Note - No Sturridge has been sidelined with a lengthy injury problem.}


2.) 16 Mar 2016 07:43:49
I think if the asking price was that low a couple of people would be interested if he stayed fit until the end of the season.


3.) 16 Mar 2016 10:59:19
Who said what the asking price was?


4.) 16 Mar 2016 12:49:29
Well EdFar seeing as you decided to be anal about it:

'They are interested in signing at x price' indicates that they believe they can sign at x price. It would therefore follow that they believe that x price is the asking price.

Should this not be the logical following then the core of the statement becomes absolutely meaningless - y team want to sign z player at x price is even more of a non-report than it already is for good players because of the ability to sub prices in and out at will e. g. Barnet FC are interested in signing Messi for £500 - maybe true, but it's also nonsense.

The exception to this is when the 'report' goes on to state that this is short of the valuation of the player by their current club (or states an alternative valuation)

We good here?

Hey hjikle for someone who obviously regards him, her or itself as something of a logician you might want to try the first sentence again .

" They are interested in signing at x price' indicates that they believe they can sign at x price. It would therefore follow that they believe that x price is the asking price. "

You are, of course, making an assumption that there actually is an asking price (and you were going so well until the last bit. Why because somebody may want to buy something do you automatically assume that the current owner wants to sell it? As you say, if you don't accept the assumption or the assumption is false then the rest is just meaningless word play.

Whilst it is very refreshing to find somebody who believes press reports I think I'd have to disagree with your evaluation of the current situation.

However, let's accept your assumption as being true . I'm going to make an assumption that you may never have been involved in [ I'll be kind and say 'complex '] financial negotiations - if the assumption is erroneous then do please accept my humble apologies - but to assume that an opening bid matches the seller's expectation is, to be kind, quite naive. Rather (if the selle is any good) it sets the field for the seller to announce their (much higher) price. I believe that this opens the door to what is called negotiation or 'bargaining'

Of course it is also quite possible that a mischievous little imp has let slip a figure to various members of the fourth estate to 'test the waters' so to speak, perhaps to draw Sturridge's agent out into the open. That again would suggest that the assertion that it would "therefore follow" that the figure mentioned was the "asking price" was slightly wide of the mark


So I'll ask you specifically - how do you know there is an asking price for Sturridge and, if there is, how do you know what it is?

{Ed001's Note - obviously, for all your attempt at being clever, this is going over your head. No one has said it was the asking price, what was said is that if it was that low there would be no shortage of offers. You are so busy trying to pretend to be clever you are making a fool of yourself.}

Hi eds

Quick question

It's being reported Xabi Alonso will be moving on this summer, would he be a potential option for Liverpool this summer for maybe one season I think Emre Can could do with a player of his stature and experience within the squad as he could learn so much from him, I know he is 34 now but the guy is still world class and a true hero here as well would be great to see him back even if it was coming on off the bench imagine himself hendo and Lucas in midfield while Emre could learn so much from him especially on his defensive area where he still seems poor in that area in the current position he is played in, don't get me wrong I personally am a fan of Emre but I do think someone like alonso in the squad competing for the same place could only help Emre as he is very young and has huge potential for the future

Would really appreciate your opinions.

savvyxone

{Ed002's Note - It makes zero sense at all - a backward step to presumably placate the large numbers of fans that live in the past. Disruptive to the team moving forward and any plans Klipperty Klopp has. Certainly adding him and his vast wages to the squad would displace the likes of Can rather than help him.

Makes zero sense.}


1.) 15 Nov 2015 16:35:07
Ok thanks

Was just thinking out loudly is all not living in the past I do hope can can work hard on his defensive work as I previously said he has really good potential but is young so presuming he is willing to learn from his mistakes take them on board and work hard, that goes for the rest of the squad as well bar a few

Mingolet
Skittles
Loren
Moreno and Clyne to an extent

Who just are stuck in their ways or just not good enough for where we need to be

Thanks again for your input.


2.) 16 Nov 2015 07:48:38
You know players have coaches to learn from right? And in terms of defensive work, Can has Lucas to learn from if he needed to be copying another player.


3.) 16 Nov 2015 11:13:11
We should have brought him in this or even last season (if that been feasible) .

Makes less sense now that Lucas playing well and Can, Rossiter, Chirivella will have had another year under their belts and can be considered credible backup.


4.) 16 Nov 2015 11:32:45
Hjikle I don't think there's any advantage from copying another player, when can is younger and can also be potentially in the long term a better player than lucas, Zimbo I totally agree with you it would have been great but like ED02 said it doesn't really make sense for a lot of reasons, let's just hope Klipperty and his coachin staff can work him hard on his defence as he has all the attributes of being a top class midfielder like rossiter, both ones to hold onto and ones to watch for the future

( I REALY HOPE WE CAN HOLD ONTO PLAYERS LIKE THESE AS WE NEED STABILITY IN MIDFIELD WHICH LOOKS LIKE ITS GETTING THERE NOW BUT WILL TAKE TIME ) HOPEFULLY DURING THE SUMMER WE CAN REARRANGE OUR DEFENCE AS IT SEEMS STILL OUR WEAKEST PART OF OUR GAMES EVEN THOUGH AND i HATE SAYING THIS BUT SKITTLES IS ACTUALLY PLAYING A LOT BETTER AS OF LATE.

Ed025

Question for you mate

In your honest opinion can you see Klopp bringing silver wear to the club this season and also do you thin Koeman is the correct man to take Everton a step closer to the top 4-5.

savvyxone

{Ed025's Note - i think liverpool have a decent chance of winning a cup savvy, but think the league and CL are out of their reach this season, on koeman the jury is still out i think but given time and the resources he could well have everton vying for the top 4, but it may take a couple of seasons mate..


1.) 04 Sep 2017 08:30:51
Ed025 Obviously I want Liverpool to win everything but realistically this year I would be very happy with a FA Cup win with a decent show in the league and champions league with a top 4 finish, if Klopp doesn't win something this year then questions do need to be asked.

moving onto Everton what would you call a realistic target this year for you guys? I do like your squad you have some very talented lads in there with 2-3 Youth players coming on leaps on bounds Calveton Lewin looks a good prospect, Holgate looks very tidy and everyone seems to have forgotten about Lookman he gets you excited when he is on the ball I would say a top 6 finish with a very good showing in the Europa league would be a good season for you lads I do think in January you need to address the striker position but you never know Calveton might come on leaps and bounds in 6 months and that young lad from Hadjuk split if I remember correctly looked very good.

{Ed025's Note - my guess would be everton finishing 7th kloppers, its going to take time for that many new players to gel and not having a recognised CF will make it difficult to win games, calvert lewin is doing a good job but is only young yet so i dont want to set expectation too high mate..


2.) 04 Sep 2017 08:56:52
Everton will regret not signing a decent striker this summer. They do have a decent enough midfield and fullbacks (once Coleman is back) but Rooney does not cut it for me as a lone striker and Sandro is just not ready to be the main man yet. There is a possibility they could creep into 6th spot if Arsenal have a shocking meltdown but again that is hard to see. Their CBs are also not that good imo. Keane is ok but Jagielka and Williams need immediate replacing. They have become the twiddle dee and dum of Everton's defense.


3.) 04 Sep 2017 09:03:39
I've got a bet on Liverpool to win the league and Everton to get relegated. I don't honestly believe Everton will go down but I do think they'll struggle to be in the top half. 😎😎.

{Ed025's Note - you should have just threw your money down a grid then ings, its no wonder bookies are so rich with bets like that, did the guy behind the counter start laughing when you handed the slip i with liverpool to win the league on it?..


4.) 04 Sep 2017 10:27:33
Yes, but he didn't laugh at all when he saw the one on Everton to get relegated ;)


5.) 04 Sep 2017 10:58:55
I would really like Everton to be challenging again with us (ahead of all the London and Manchester sides), but i think as you say Ed025, they are a few years off yet.

I disagree on them lacking a striker personally. I think in Rooney, Lookman, Lewin and Sandro they have more than enough. Rooney is good for 15 a season playing as a striker and Lewin and Lookman need games to fulfil their massive potential. They could be special.

Midfield they're strong with Sigurdsson, Schneiderlin, Gueye and Klaasen. After that though the quality drops off severely. The likes of Barkley, Davies, McCarthy etc are just headless chickens and thugs. Not good enough. Davies has potential but i don't see him ever being a top 4 level midfielder.

Their wingers i just don't get. Bolasie and Mirallas are all pace no ability. Really don't see the point in them. Mirallas is also a complete thug too.

I think they are weak in the full back areas. Baines is well past his best, Garbutt needs games to develop, Coleman may never be the same player again although touch wood he comes back stronger, Martina is a stop gap at best, and JJ Kenny needs to be playing more.

Centre backs i rate Williams as a leader but not a player, Holgate and Pennington have potential, but after that they are very poor here. Funes Mori is yet another thug, Keane is so average it is unreal, Jagielka looks like a slightly more fragile Agger. Don't see how they can challenge with a central defence that is literally weaker than Liverpool's. That takes some doing!

Keeper wise i personally think in Pickford they have England's number 1 for the next decade so that was a great buy.

Hope to see them back up their with us in a few years, but they are still carrying too many poor players, and too many thugs with a mid table mentality. I thought Koeman was better than that but after the Derby last year i question that. I don't see him as the man to take Everton to the next level. They have the investors now, but they need a coach with less ego and more tactical nous.

{Ed025's Note - i will have a lot of what your saying MK but there are some things you have wrong mate, davies has the potential to play for england and is a fine talent, keane is very good and bolasie on his day is unplayable, this thug thing is a bit over the top as well, yes the occasion got the better of us in the derbies but i dont think we went out with the intention to kick you off the pitch (even though i admit it looked awful), im not williams biggest fan but the rest of our defence is good and a lot stronger than liverpools thats for certain, koeman is not as incisive enough for me even though i think hes a good manager, i would like him to be less cautious and more attacking at times like when we played city and let them off the hook when down to 10 men, we have some cracking youngsters at the club though so the future is looking bright, but its the here and now that supporters are interested in so we need to knit as a unit quickly if we are to step up to the mark this season, but it wont be easy..


6.) 04 Sep 2017 11:02:28
Thanks for the reply Ed 👍🏻.

{Ed025's Note - anytime mate..


7.) 04 Sep 2017 13:36:22
I still think Everton will finish above arsenal and spurs. I would hate to be the person to try and get Everton into the top four as there are too many top teams with lots of money they'd have to displace. I agree with ed025 that the jury is out. I see only one reason they can't be the next spurs and that is a quick striker. Rooney is fantastic plating in the hole but he is at his best with someone good in front of him.

I think liverpool can win the league if we get lucky concerning injuries. Depth cost us last year and it isn't such an issue now but I would be happy with a top three finish. I think liverpool are one of the three best teams so that should be achievable. I don't see us seriously pushing for the domestic cups. Maybe FA cup but the league cup will be for the kids. I think we are in with a shout in ucl, quarter finals and I'd be pleased any further and I'll be well happy. If we beat city you will start hearing the pundits talk about liverpool as serious title contenders for the first time this season.

{Ed025's Note - although i dont think you will win the league superred i still think you will be right up there, with a better defence you would be a lot closer i believe mate..


8.) 04 Sep 2017 14:07:10
Yeah my thinking too ed025. Cheers for the reply.

Concerning lovren, we have seen him perform excellently for Southampton and it is possible he puts in a great season. Especially as he is kind of fighting for his place with lfc keen to bring in the right new cb.


9.) 04 Sep 2017 14:01:07
Cheers for your thoughts Ed025. Hopefully you come 4th at the expense of Chelski, Citeh and United. Realistically though, I've got you down for 6th place at Arsenals expense. Their midfield is absolutely woeful!

{Ed025's Note - i would take 6th MK especially as we are re-building mate..

Sine the Spanish closing date is tonight, can they only transfer within their own country or can they take players from other countries.

Might sound like a silly question but had to ask as there’s obviously a few still around fearing for Couthino leaving.
Think I already know the answer but thought it best to ask yourself as you would know best.

There’s an awful lot of negativity recently regarding who we brought in, but seriously look at the current squad now after all the Ins and outs (couts not included ) surely we have a squad that’s very capable of seriously challenging for the title this season. There’s a hell of a lot of talent there. Yes we could have done with a top class CB but that’s the world we live in Klopp f. d up, fine get over that one guys. 7 points from 3 games in the champions league and little or no injuries just one or two who need to improve on their fitness because we have minimum 2 games a week now.

I can seriously see us doing serious damage this year on 1 condition.


Please keep Mignolet on the bench that’s all I ask and if a player screws up once or twice lay off the guy. For example Karius he had a torrid time from the fans and he’s 10 times the keeper mingolet is.

{Ed007's Note - Yes, except I was naked. I'm not naked just now, honest.}


2.) 01 Sep 2017 00:37:44
we need a leader for the defence at set pieces. aling with pace for covering counter attacks.

Not too many of the out there though.

{Ed007's Note - Why not go for someone like Van Dijk?}


3.) 01 Sep 2017 00:57:33
What are you on about?


4.) 01 Sep 2017 01:03:56
Not sure about the keeper statement but we absolutely have a team that can challenge. I've been saying for ages most of our defensive problems are due to poor full backs with nothing going forward and poor ball retention. Hopefully we've sorted that this season and we won't leave the CBs so exposed. Here's to a good season lads!


5.) 01 Sep 2017 01:33:24
Southampton have us in the dunces corner ed007

Honestly not our fault 😜

Well it was Klopp but in fairness the other signings were decent including OX in my opinion, everyone complained about Wijnaldum when he signed now he’s regarded as a key player so give the kid a chance before getting the noose out for him.

We need 150 mg of Anxicalm for releasing Coutinho, I think our anxiety is so bad now with so many names being fired around the market it wouldn’t surprise me if I needed some respite after all this, might get onto The Brazilian team doc for some magic meds to cure me. Seems to have worked wonders for Coutinho.

By the way

VVD will be announced Thursday not saying where I heard this but it’s very very reliable.

Whatever happened to the days of any player fighting and pushing themselves to the very limit of their potential rather than looking for an agreement on a basis of playing time and their preferred position? In my opinion if you think your good enough go and prove it during training and do the same and more on the playing field and if someone comes in and performs better than you in that same position fight to get your place back. Ok we are well overstocked in many areas but competitiveness on and off the field should help improve a squad better rather than comparing contract sizes as in today's game.
I get where players are coming from these days and like Can as a footballer but when push comes to shove sometimes players need their ego brought into check and told how it is and how it's going to be and if they don't like that sadly it would be time to look to move elsewhere.

In most cases like that an Asprin may not even be needed just a slight change to diet and close monitoring is the norm for circulation issues like that.

Zero to worry about you can be sure the dietician has sorted this already.

Never change a team that's doing well just to please others, including him again would only disrupt things. Right now is the perfect time to start giving young solanke a 15-20 run every game to gain more and more experience he has a lot and I mean a lot of potential. He's carrying on very similar to Suarez when he wanted to go and disrupted the team until he got his way so in my opinion leave him on the bench and only draft him in if it's a last resort as we are playing a hell of a lot better without him and when you look at the table we are only 2 pts from 2nd place and city WILL drop points this season. They are far from unbeatable especially under the overrated Gaurdiola. And with hopefully 1 new CB coming in at January things can only improve from here on as long as the players and staff stay focused on the job they are payed to do and that is not entertain couts to boost his ego any further. If he wants out let whatever club put their money where their mouth is and take him and I bet it will turn out not too well for him in 24mths time. Just wait and see.

And is the creation of a lot of the penalties that are given away in the 1st place. Yesterday was a prime example. Don’t get me wrong love the guy, but just watching him puts the fear of god into me anytime he’s near a ball, never mind what effect he has on the others in front. I must ad as well that I would put Moreno into the very same category as well. Two great lads who try very hard but there’s better players there already and I’m shocked they are not regulars.
