We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter page.

16 Sep 2019 13:16:11
Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Discussion Posts and the More Liverpool Posts pages.

Hi Ed is there any truth on the rumors linking Fabian Ruiz to Liverpool? I've seen his name passed on a fair bit.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I now that Bayern Munich and Barcelona have been denied the opportunity to discuss him and other sides have watched him CA and Napoli will not want to sell unless a cast offer is made.}

11 Sep 2019 23:37:58
isnt he another fabinho?

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2019 06:23:59
@Riomazy: Think he replaced Hamsik in the Napoli side so plays further forward than Fabs.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2019 23:14:44
We might be looking for him to replace Chirivella.

Or Lallana?

Lots coming out today from both Fekir and his ex agent. Certainly seems that the theory the move fell apart was because Lfc messed Lyon around is afair way off the mark.

Believable9 0Unbelievable

10 Sep 2019 20:10:38
The agent said a foriegn pseudo-Representative as for negotiations to begin from the start at The moment of signing, so I'm guessing this was the reason why.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Sep 2019 21:05:47
Ed2 said at the time that we dicked Lyon about at the 11th hour.

Agree3 0Disagree

10 Sep 2019 22:24:57
Well Fekir certainly shows no ill feelings and says our dealings with him were excellent and that we showed that we really wanted him. Straight from the horses mouth, good enough for me.

Agree7 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 07:32:53
What Fekir is saying makes no sense. On one hand he's complaining about the lies about his injury and his family (presumably the "pseudo-representative" is his family), and on the other, he's saying he has no ill feelings towards Liverpool. Something's not right.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 08:58:04
Since when is anything said to the media for public consumption, 100% on the level? I rarely worry too much about content. Rather I always wonder about the timing, and why a story comes out when it does.

As far as I am concerned, of the 3 sources it’s only ed2 who has no dog in that particular fight, so I’m most inclined to believe him. I doubt he wastes his time coming on here to tell lies. As my old history teacher would say, you need to apply the 5 W’s when considering a sources info; who, what, when, where and why.

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 11:38:29
And there was me thinking the actual player himself, who was actually in the room and involved in the deal would be a fairly good source of information. How silly of me.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no because he still wants a move to Liverpool, so he has motivation to say good things about the club. You have to know people's angles before you can know how much faith you can have in what they say. His agent certainly can't be trusted and he was sacked because of what he said to the media, but he was also in the room and involved in the deal. So, by your ridiculous standards, he would be a fairly good source of information. Clearly he isn't as, like Fekir, he has a reason to give his version of the facts to present himself in the best light. The very fact Fekir says he doesn't know why the deal fell through tells you he is not exactly the best person to listen to, as he is either completely out of the loop or lying.}

11 Sep 2019 11:57:47
Surely he knows there's little or no chance of a move to Liverpool now.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - who knows what the future holds? If he plays well in Betis anything could happen. It was only the price that was the issue last time.}

11 Sep 2019 12:28:54
If it was the price stopping us looking at him again we'd have moved for him this summer when he went to Spain for €20M.

Agree3 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 15:15:23
Little Naby. how is it so hard for you to grasp? The price was a sticking point in the 2018 transfer window. A year later clearly our transfer targets will have changed, especially after a season in which we were one point from winning the Prem and then winning the CL.

Also you do realise prices are massively inflated to prem teams, especially the top 6?. Just because Betis paid that, doesn't mean the fee would be anywhere near the same if it were us buying the player.

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 15:31:40
What am i not grasping? everything you've just said i already realised but thanks for telling me what i already knew. its all irrelevant anyway, he'll never play for us but at least the failed transfer can't be all blamed on the club now.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 18:33:44
Smallsy, if we offered 1 million more than betis, he would have come to us. Simple.

They wouldn't go "Oh betis are paying £20 mil so you have to pay 40, or we will sell to betis".

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 18:46:07
“If it was the price stopping us looking at him again we'd have moved for him this summer when he went to Spain for €20M”

The 20m is irrelevant. To us it would more likely to have been 35m. That’s if Lyon even entertained the idea of doing business with us after pulling out last time round. Should we need an AM next season and he has an outstanding season with Betis. what’s to say we wouldn’t declare interest again? It’s only really age that’s against him, but he’s only 25/ 26 I think.

You’re basically saying “I think I’ll believe Fekir as it’s straight from the horses mouth”. His words probably hold as much water as Harry Kane saying “I’ve never dived in my life”. Players and managers rarely give the full picture when speaking to the press/ public.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 19:52:50
Ok Smallsy, Fekir will be our "marquee"signing next summer. And i'll score the winner for us in the FA Cup final.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2019 19:56:27
Exactly Ed001. And as I said in my earlier reply. Why is this story coming out now when he has just joined a new club and yet the matter of discussion is over a year old? Clearly he sees Betis as a temporary stop on the way to greener pastures, and he's freshening up his "path" a little bit in the public's eye to be able to take the next step. And you're very right about the sweet words for LFC. Nobody else in their right mind would look so kindly on a club that changed it's mind at the last minute, and then which results on his value plummeting to one third of what it was earlier. It's just standard good PR, what he is doing. And certainly not 100% on the level.

Agree3 0Disagree

05 Sep 2019 12:35:12
Ed’s,

What do you expect to happen next summer regarding ins and out? I. e positions being focused on and players linked?

Also, will there be any business done in January?

Thanks :)

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I would expect Liverpool to look at the midfield next summer and still look to a LM and again an AM - they are two positions where there could be improvement. I suspect that a CB may well need to be added but that will depend on youngsters developing and how Gomez does. As for anything else it would likely depend on people leaving.

Clubs rarely plan for business in January.}

05 Sep 2019 14:32:19
Eds, which player (s) in the squad do you believe have the most to prove this year? I think Keita needs to really show us something, and depending on how his year goes, that will greatly impact our transfer approach heading into 2020. I think if his 19/ 20 is similar to 18/ 19, we may look to sell him.

Other than that, I think the team feels pretty stable and strong overall.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Gomez if he is to cement his place going forward, Keita has proven to be a major mistake so far and needs to step up & Lallana if he is to ever to be seen as anything other than cover. The club needs to find a way to keep younger players happy - it will be evident to them that the club will now continue to look to buy success and their opportunities will be limited.}

05 Sep 2019 15:05:52
Thanks for the quick response, Ed!

Interesting note on Lallana. I figured his ship has sailed and it will be hard for him to get back to a form that will justify regular minutes as he ages. The paradox is how do you give a guy those EPL/ CL minutes to improve his form when other players are ahead of him quality-wise. Seems like a given that he will move on unless he somehow shows us something incredible in the FA and league cups. Very unlikely.

I agree on Gomez too. CB strangely feels unsettled right now considering it's a strength of ours, as he and Matip switch spots as VVD's long-term partner every couple of months because of injuries. There's a skill to staying healthy that comes with being a professional athlete that I'm not sure Gomez understands yet. I appreciate how hard he plays, but it doesn't do us good in the long run if he's spending over half his time in the training room.

I really hope to see an opportunity given to Brewster this year, and I hope he's ready to seize the opportunity. It's interesting to see young talent get minutes already at other big clubs like MU and Chelsea. Our younger guys are obviously seeing that too, and hopefully that continues to light a fire but doesn't lead to disenchantment. There's only so long before they will begin to get discouraged, justly or unjustly.

Thanks again and have a great day! The notes are always appreciated.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

05 Sep 2019 15:36:26
Ed’s thank you for the response!

Have you a small list of players you’ve heard we are looking at? Or alternatively who you would like to see fill the void.

Thanks :)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Not really at this time. It would not be unreasonable to look at previous lists and see who has not moved on.}

05 Sep 2019 17:02:29
There's also a very likely chance that it will be a talent that emerges this season.

At the end of the day, who had heard of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luka Jovic, Joao Felix, Jadon Sancho, Rodrygo and Nicolas Pepe 12 months ago?

Agree3 1Disagree

05 Sep 2019 16:11:46
Thanks! Do you mind just copying one over as I can’t find anything?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Try searching on Joao Felix or Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld.}

05 Sep 2019 17:36:42
mftonjes can't really compare are youngsters to Chelsea and Utd with Chelsea's strikers they had signed not working out that give Abraham's a chance with the transfer ban, and losing Hazzard has left a big hole with no chance to replace him. As for Utd when you look at there match day squad there signing have been so poor and on such big wages getting rid of them before replacing them is the hardest thing to do so it gives them not a lot of choice with the players they have signed and how they have played. It's hard enough for us to go and sign a player good enough to get into are team let alone a youngster get into the first team but we do have Trent and Gomez around the first team. As for Brewster he is still coming back from a very long lay off.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There was no problem with Hazzard as the club already had a replacement.}

05 Sep 2019 18:51:52
grino - i won't argue that the situations are the same, but there isn't a lot of complexity that goes into this from the point of view of these kids. these kids are competitive and they really want to play. i know if i'm brewster, and i see mason greenwood getting a look this year, and not looking out of place, i'm thinking i deserve my shot too. i've played with him and i can do that. i'm just saying i hope he gets that opportunity this year and runs with it. i really like him and would love to see him take another step in his career with the club.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Sep 2019 18:15:34
ed your comment on "dependant on youngsters developing" i know it's been said that Klopp rates Nat Phillips, obviously had his bad injuries but does klopp still consider him part of the long term plans?

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would think it depends how he gets on in Germany - but his age is against him.}

05 Sep 2019 21:41:47
Ed002 who was hazards replacement and my point was none of young players would be getting into there teams if they had are first 11. But I hope Brewster does get plenty of game time. As for greenwood am sure if true be told ole would have liked to have signed another forward but with are transfer window closing early it did not help with selling Lukaku after.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Hudson Odoi.}

06 Sep 2019 13:40:04
So sth like:
Dael Fry Lovren
Lallana B Fernandes
-> Dwight McNeil (my pick not based on Ed002 info)

Also, great to hear from Ed002 and thanks for the insight, especially during this dull lull in the season, it's much appreciated.

As previously discussed, do you still see the LB cover for Robertson coming from within? I like Larouchi, but he does still seem like a rather rough diamond.

Which reminds me, isn't Anderson Arroyo going somewhere or what's the story there now?
Thanks!

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Sep 2019 13:14:15
ed002 as an Englishman I hope Hudson Odoi turns into a player as good as Hazard but that's a lot to expect from a young player to fill his boots for me he had been the best player in are league for a very long time.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Fortunately clubs do not assess players against each other in the same way you do.}

06 Sep 2019 15:48:49
ed002 it was you that said it was his replacement. so if so comparisons will be made and if Firmino had left us in the summer to expect Brewster to fill his role at his age would have been a big ask. And both them players might go on to be better in the long run. And its nice to see the young English players getting a chance. But my point was in Chelsea's and Utd time at the minute it will be easier for the young players to get a chance as Liverpool at the minute have a stronger team.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is a replacement - clubs do not make comparisons like that.}

04 Sep 2019 00:48:48
I believe that we are close to signing a Bobby Duncan replacement for the u23s from Wigan, a guy called Joe Gelhardt, apparently he's a Liverpool fan and is very highly rated and wanted by numerous clubs in England and Europe.

04 Sep 2019 08:18:50
Is he also Jamie Carragher's cousin?

Afternoon eds.

You said Ryan Kent was likely to move, and now he's off to Rangers.

Do you know if this true? £6 million ish. Not bad for an ok player who will probably have a good carear at a slightly lesse club than ours.

Have a good day all.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I would expect him to move - Rangers if the deal can be agreed.}

02 Sep 2019 13:09:43
Hope works out for him - was unlikely to play for us so good luck to the lad and Rangers win something with him and Ojo.

02 Sep 2019 16:08:23
Good move for the lad. i think this move was always going to happen, there was always room for compromise. no need for the little tantrums during the summer. Best of luck to him anyway, and another good deal by the club.

Bye 👋🏼
The lad seemed to either believe his own hype or was using the name of Gerrard to try and get himself ahead of others.
Good luck to him, he needs to grow up, learn to be a professional, learn that being related to someone is no substitute to hard work, dedication and talent and get himself a better agent.
Hopefully he forges a successful career for himself based on merit.

02 Sep 2019 13:56:09
Until next summer when he decides he is to good of a player to be there and forces a move, I'm surprised they want such a nuisance.

Give the kid a break, I wish him well. Still hope he sacks the agent though.

Does his cousin not want to sign him either then? Rangers could surely pay 2m? Or are they still pleading poverty?

02 Sep 2019 14:42:09
I look at how the red devils have thrown Rashford in at a young age and now Mason Greenwood and let's see how those 2 turn out, Rashford is hardly living up to his potential and whilst Greenwood is highly regarded, they could end up destroying him. How can an 18 year old Duncan seriously expect to get ahead of Mane, Firmino, Salah, Origi, Shaqiri and Brewster well he could potentially give Brewster a run for his money as he has yet to get an opportunity.

The best he could hope for is a place on the bench for the Carabao Cup / FA Cup and maybe a bench appearance during the very busy months of December and January. If its true that Duncan is being an arse I hope he regrets what could have been (plenty of medals in this team), this young generation of players at the club could be the next big thing in 4 years time, I am looking at VD Berg, Hoever, Elliot, Jones, Woodburn, Arroyo, Glatzel, Larouci, and Brewster and you can add in Gomez and TAA as they will be in their prime.

I hope Stevie G has a word in his ear, a loan to Scottish football would set him straight . I would not want to be playing in Aberdeen on a mid week night in January!

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Sep 2019 15:58:03
What's wrong with Aberdeen?

02 Sep 2019 17:33:53
Honestly just on the Rashford comment thing, I think united have made their own problems. I think LVG actually had just gotten united to a point they might make progress, it took a long time but United won the FA cup and rashford came in and was playing really well. They looked like they finally were able to put in some good performances, then they got rid of him and got jose and went downhill again.

Rashford in turn seemed to just not progress that much and now the end of last season and the first few games of this season hasn't done much.

reckon they should have just carried on another season with LVG see if he could build on the FA cup. But they wanted Jose and here we are, reckon this season will be a bigger 2 horse race than last season. Though would be nice is Leicester grabbed a top 4 place ;)

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Sep 2019 15:09:31
I remember Martial looked a spectacular prospect when he came under LVG.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Sep 2019 22:41:50
The fact that salah bobby mane etc are ahead of him is kind of the reason he probably wanted out, he wasn't saying he deserved his place in front of them but he still wants to play first team so fair enough that he wanted out.
Just a shame that he didn't act great with the public drama that forced the move. But we move on, no big loss and the player moves on with a big challenge for him to prove he's worth his words.
