Hi, I've had a look, seems like a new name, do we hold an interest in Noa Lang. I know nothing about him btw.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Noa Lang (LW) was purchased for a €6.5M option from Ajax by Brugge in the summer and was due to be sold on at auction. Brugge say there were no offers but Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Leeds have sent scouts to watch him each has declared an interest. The player comes with serious baggage which is why Milan seem to have stepped away. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool but they may well have had scouts watch him as he is doing well. Brugge will look for perhaps €30M in January or next summer.}

19 Oct 2021 00:04:20
A quick look on wikipedia shows that Noa Lang got into trouble for signing an anti-semitic song with fans. It was investigated and he refused to apologize. In the link to the article says that "He would rather die than be a ____". That is some serious baggage.

I would be more concerned with how dumb a kid like this is.
He may be able to score a header from outside the box or destroy Norwich on a regular basis but he is just not worth it if he does not possess minimal level of brain cells.

Guy sounds like a complete idiot - doesn’t matter how talented he is that sort of baggage will only cause problems.

It’s bad enough we had a bitey racist, let alone an anti Semite. Hard pass on this one.

There were other disciplinary issues that led Ten Hag to show him the door at Ajax.

All ends up he sounds like a bad egg, Redplanet.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 22:09:39
Not like we've never signed a player that was moved out of Ajax, last one caused no trouble whatsoever.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Oct 2021 23:15:01
I'm constantly impressed by Declan Rice, and think he will be a top top player. Are Liverpool or any others showing serious interest in him? I know we have Fabinho but I imagine he could play higher up the pitch if necessary.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United are keen.}

18 Oct 2021 07:45:02
Why would he take a step down to go to Man U?

Agree5 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 09:29:43
He’ll end up at United or Chelsea, West Ham want £100m for him so he’s not in our price range.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 10:25:20
Who is better Rice or Phillips?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 11:42:36
Phillips better passer. Rice better engine and all round I reckon.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 12:15:53
Really don't get the hype with Rice. £30m player with an inflated fee IMO.

Agree7 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 12:45:31
Not for me. Massively hyped up by the media imo. Not sure what he brings tbh.

Agree5 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 13:10:27
Rice is on a completely different level than Phillips. Phillips is a fine player, but Rice is one of the best talents in England right now.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 14:34:02
Mftonjes can you explain why you think he's one of the best talents? I couldn't disagree more but I respect your opinion 👌.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Oct 2021 15:11:34
I personally think Phillips is too slow and not defensively strong enough, whereas Rice is better defensively, he’s also not particularly quick and is as mobile as the QE2 and I don’t think he’s as clever a defensive player as either Fabinho or Rodri.

Either way he’ll be United’s big summer signing next year and Ole’s final piece of the jigsaw #1426 and counting.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - Are we comparing Nat Philips to Declan Rice? They play completely different positions

18 Oct 2021 15:14:09
I am impressed with Rice too.
He keeps, carries and distributes the ball excellently.
Better than Gini for sure.
Not the same kind of player as Fab.
Probably more of a Henderson replacement.

The thing is, I have been looking at midfielders in every team and see which can improve Liverpool. Ty
Despite the constant criticism of Liverpool midfield, there aren't that many better I would take.
If you consider KDB, for sure he will improve the team.
Otherwise, I think Rice will do a job (far better than Phillips) .

And we truly miss Gerrard.
If the current team has a Gerrard, we will indisputably the best team in the world.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - Rice is a superb player goes about his work in an efficient and effective manner and would certainly be a worthy successor to Hendo. The midfield player I would take is Ndombele if Bissouma has been a naughty boy. That fella is mercurial. Lord knows what position he plays because he’s everywhere.

18 Oct 2021 17:10:32
Ndombele or bissouma Ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I think Ndombele would be perfect for us with the personnel we have

18 Oct 2021 19:25:44
Tielemans without doubt he is different from what we have.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - inconsistent tho no?

18 Oct 2021 22:11:24
I meant Phillips at Leeds United Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - thanks for cleaning that up mate. I was beginning to think I’d lost all my faculties. For sure Rice over Philips for me. Rice is a Hendo in the making

18 Oct 2021 22:24:50
Can’t compete with Newcastle. Am sure they’ll want him.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 09:39:59
I agree I think Rice would be a great Hendo successor, it’s a pity he is likely too expensive for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 12:28:35
Rice miles better than Gini. I know there are Gini haters on here but get a grip. Rice is slow. Often poorly positioned. Average passer. He’s a slightly better Dier IMO and massively overhyped by the press (for a change) .

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 13:07:09
But Ed Ndombele has baggage, too. He seems to have a real attitude problem that's causing issues at Spurs.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 13:11:30
Gandalf, I just love the player. First, he's highly skilled and intelligent. There's something instinctual to the way he plays, especially for a guy who is often in the defensive half. To that point, he's plays difficult positions, ones that often takes a lot of experience to master, and he's doing it really well as a very young player. Also the age is relevant too, because he's playing for a club that isn't well known for development, and he continues to improve each season and likely in a trial by fire situation. I don't watch him regularly, rather a handful of times a season, and every time I've watched him I've thought he's been better than the last time I watched him. There are few players that stand out to me like this.

No player is a perfect player, but it really feels like there is a student of the craft in him and given his base skillset, he has a ton to work with. I see him being one of the best (potentially the best) English midfielders of the next decade. There's a reason why United and supposedly City are both wanting him badly.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath for Rice.}

19 Oct 2021 13:24:33
Ed002 - Ha, I agree. I don't believe there is a fit between him and Liverpool at all, I was just telling Gandalf why I like the player. He's already too high priced for Liverpool.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 20:47:03
for me Ndombele looks great in spells then you don't know his on the pitch a lot of the time for spurs. But when he does put a spell in his great on the ball I don't think the prem suits him. A better version of Naby but not a player for a full season in the prem for me. Bissouma if he has not done anything wrong would be a lot better fit. As for Rice being a Henderson replacement I think I would rather Curtis Jones do that.

Agree0 0Disagree

Afternoon Eds how is Jeremy Doku getting on so far this season and are we monitoring him?

Hi Ed02,
Given Liverpool's USA connections, are you aware of any interest in Ricardo Pepi? (FC Dallas, just broke into USA nat team, scored 3 goals) . Admittedly, not seen him much except world cup games and youtube videos. but IMHO, seems like a lot of raw striker talent at 18. gets into good positions, has natural eye for goal, two feet and good with head. I'm just thinking of the potential with higher class coaching.
Feedback welcome!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from other sides but not Liverpool.}

12 Oct 2021 17:01:08
Many thanks Ed002. Much appreciated.

Shame, he looks quite promising.
I guess another talented young American ending up playing in Bundesleague.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Ricardo Pepi (S) FC Dallas youngster who has been scouted by Bayern Munich, Juventus, Wolfsberg, Werder Bremen and others. Had a trial with Bayern Munich and they may make an offer. Player wants to move to Chelsea. Do not be surprised by an offer from start up St Louis.}

13 Oct 2021 14:37:57
Many thanks Ed002.
As always, great insights across the game.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Oct 2021 00:47:27
If they went for an American, I would love for it to be Adams at RBL. Would make an excellent replacement for Gini.

There's a lot of really talented youngsters from the US right now. I wish we had a better national team coach.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Oct 2021 00:47:29
My pick for the young American would be Timothy Weah. He has pace in spades and can finish a little as well.

As a Yank I am excited about our National Team. Possibly our best ever.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Oct 2021 13:22:26
Yunus Musah for me, 420. But Weah is also good.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2021 01:45:26
Morning Ed’s, apologies if I have missed this, would Ousmane Dembele be a player we would be interested in?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Klopp still has an interest in the likes of Dembele and Traore.}

12 Oct 2021 13:32:06
It’s baffling why Klopp has got the klipperty’s for these two. Traore has absolutely no end product and Dembele is possibly the most injury prone footballer in living history (he’s actually out with injury at the moment with no return date pencilled in), and that is notwithstanding his “issues”. Disappointing and underwhelming are understatements.

Agree3 0Disagree

12 Oct 2021 16:47:58
Totally baffling how a manager with one of the best reputations in world football for developing talent would maybe see something in players that others wouldn't.
But hey, we all know better than Klopp right?
I'll back Klopp's judgement every single time.

That said, simply due to finances I don't think anyone will be worrying about seeing any of those 2 in Liverpool red anytime soon.

Agree12 0Disagree

12 Oct 2021 16:56:27
Is Dembele the player Liverpool have been in contact with Barcelona about?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have not spoken with Barcelona about the player but have bneen talking to his agent about the possibilty of a pre-contract in January and taking him as a Free Agent in the summer.}

12 Oct 2021 19:33:46
Blackpool here we go 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2021 19:55:27
Was Dembele's agent or the player himself interested, Ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement at the moment.}

12 Oct 2021 20:32:49
Well, I guess Klopp is really interested in Dembele then. We shall see.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Oct 2021 21:25:31
Do liverpool actually HAVE to talk to Barcelona if they are trying for a pre-contract agreement in January? Surely it would be nothing to do with Barca.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 03:26:12
Totally agree Flash, except for the last bit - there will be lots of worried people in the transfer window in January 😁😉.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 07:08:09
Ed002 do you think we are looking at Dembele to add to our front line or to replace Salah?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool cannot simply add players. Space needs to be made.}

13 Oct 2021 10:41:36
Why would a player being signed on more than likely a free transfer mean Salah has to go?

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 14:17:03
Probably the fact he’s going to be asking for northwards of £300’000 a week, a huge signing on fee and then there’s extortionate agents fees too, Jadon. All for a player who’s only capable of being fit for about 33% of games a season and absolutely lacks any professionalism or semblance of hard work.

That would imply someone’s going to have to leave to accommodate that. To my mind it would be illogical to sell either of Mane or Salah and bring in Dembele. He’s not fit to clean their boots much less replace either of them.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 15:00:37
Jesus, when were scared of our life and hitting accountant mode over signing a free transfer we might aswell give up.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 19:01:26
Jadon, if he was a model professional and actually able to start games he’d be worth it. But he’s not a model professional, nor is he physically fit and to be honest, he’s just not all that good (he’s as mediocre as Anthony Martial), so he’s not worth the money, the time or the effort.

It is a fact that unlike City, United and Chelsea, we can’t afford to make mistakes in the transfer market, particularly now we’ve got Newcastle and their bottomless pit of blood money to compete against for signings. We’d be better off going for Sarr, as he’s not injury prone, far better attitude on and off the pitch, premier league proven, he’s ready to step up a level, plus he can play more than 20 games a season without pulling a hammy tying his laces, which is far more than Dembele can manage. All of which make him better value for money even having to pay a transfer fee.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 19:10:41
Flash, one very minor point. Klopp didn’t want Salah, he literally had to be persuaded by the Dave Fallows and Michael Edwards that Salah was a better bet than the player Klopp wanted, a certain Julian Brandt. Brandt has pretty much done nothing at Dortmund. As for Salah, can’t recall how he got on? Heard he’s been somewhat of a success? Klopp does get it wrong you know, he’s only human. And for my money, he’s wrong on both Dembele and Traore.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Oct 2021 19:43:54
If you claim to know more than Klopp and his staff about players than more power to ya.
But when Klopp listened to his staff about Salah, he was listening to people who do it for a living.
Klopp's human, he makes mistakes. But I doubt he'll ever need correcting by anonymous posters on t' Interweb.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - Bollox klopp is nothing without my footballing knowledge. He blows up my phone so much seeking advice I’ve had to block him countless times. The only reason I unblock him is because he gets me tickets to the match. Ok if you must know I told him to play Milly, Jones and Hendo on Saturday.

13 Oct 2021 20:05:13
Apparently Klopp wanted both Troare and Dembele last window. Have they joined us? No. Stop worrying about things that haven’t happened. No one on this site knows what Klopp really wants - and I mean no one - so chill out until he either makes a great or poor decision - fair to say that history is on his side!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I know what klopp wants…what he really wants!

13 Oct 2021 21:06:51
Are ye mad? they worry on here when were signing no one and they worry when we are, god forbid we actually have to pay a new players wage.

Ed02 who else is after Dembele? Many thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Nobody right now.}

14 Oct 2021 03:48:23
VVV - Dembele is better than Martial when he plays but I agree he has a history of injury on par with Daniel Sturbridge!
I would hope he has matured some now off the pitch and I would take him over Traore all day long in the hope that working under Klopp and addressing his fitness issues might just produce a worldy of a player.
Bobby will be off next summer, as will Divock.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2021 18:59:04
Hopefully Newcastle will step in for these two.
