Hi Ed,

I know you mentioned liverpool have scouted Filip Stevanovic. I like this kid a lot.

Could you give a full overview of what teams are interested in him right now and if there are any of these teams pushing for his transfer right now?

I hope we compete for this one.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Stevanovic (AM/LW) Partizan Belgrade kiddie who has been watched by Nice, Manchester City, Chelsea, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Juventus, Torino, Liverpool, Lazio, Atalanta, Herta Berlin, Werder Bremen and Southampton. And I suspect others. Nice are working on a deal to take him in the summer and Monaco would like to do the same but await an appointment – don’t lose sight of him.}

09 Jul 2020 15:38:55
Thanks Ed. Appreciated as always. I started watching clips of him on your recommendation. Looks a real talent.

WonderDogSparky has uploaded three new posts. Cryptic as ever. I can't figure out the Joe 90 one for the life of me. Whilst I know the song by the Wurzels that McAgger and McSkrtel duet over I still don't understand it. Maybe the brownie one is eluding to a Sharkopod, not often does Sparky elude to electric music on the radiogram. Perhaps someone could shed some light.

I wouldn’t read too much into it. You can attempt to glean some information from the updates but personally I just enjoy the tales. Never heard that Wurzels song before, have now, and it’s easier than you’d imagine to visualise Agger and Skrtel singing it.

I always listen to Ed’s/ Sparky’s music recommendations though. I had a quick listen to the first couple of songs from the Country Joe album and have now ordered the vinyl.

The Ed's have said the same all along as well.

Not quite, believe he was referring to the "done deal" and the information from mystery man "Hanz" that the Fat Kid from Bolton has been spouting all over twitter. This Hanz is the "fantasy friend" that WonderDogSparky is eluding to I believe.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 16:09:48
If you reply to the fat kid from Bolton and say that #WonderDogSparky knows more than him, or that Ed002 said FKFB is a thick pathological liar, he really doesn’t take it very well.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The transfer could happen but certainly it is not a "done deal".}

07 Jul 2020 16:31:47
FKFB is an idiot Ed. I think we all know where to find truth.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 17:16:23
Sorry Ed not sure if I hit send or not. Was asking when you say it could happen is that based on the “anything could happen” theory or is the interest confirmed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation as I know it - certainly there has been no approach to his club.}

07 Jul 2020 17:37:53
Ed2, when you say it could happen, would it be as a replacement for Gini?

Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Someone would need to leave to make space and there have been no efforts as far as I am aware to move any of the midfield on. And as far as I know Klopp has not signed players over 25 or 26 at Liverpool so it goes rather against the grain. The player has had many injury issues, would command higher wages than anyone else at the club at a time when money is very tight.}

07 Jul 2020 18:37:31
Yeah taking all into account Ed it makes absolutely zero since.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 19:19:59
the squad has a cluster of players all 28 and over that are aging together. it doesn't make sense to add another guy to that group.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 20:40:02
The best part is I checked the replies to The Fat Kid's Thiago tweet and most are from people who don't believe Thiago is coming or that "Hanz Ernest Aduolfo" is a real person.

I almost admire his determination to keep the charade up.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 22:31:36
One tweeter points out that the FKFB resident German footie expert was his African footie expert only 2 years ago. Seemingly, Hanz is an expert wherever the FKFB needs him to be or, dare I say it, where his BS fits best.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Jul 2020 00:01:04
You think he could at least go to the trouble of inventing a network?

Jacques-Pierre Baguette in France. Eamonn Mac O'Murphy in Ireland. Vladimir von Soviet in Russia.

Hi ed01 and ed02

I remember a year or 2 ago City were interested in Joe Gomez. Has the interest disappeared? Quality defender and I hope his partnership with VVD continues for years to come.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I don't recall that. Bournemouth were interested at the same time he moved to Liverpool.}

05 Jul 2020 21:28:36
Eds. I would like your opinion on rhian brewster and what we do with him next season.
Clearly there is not a lot of money to spend but i feel we need a good backup striker. I think he's got a record of a goal in every 2 games for Swansea and from What i saw of todays goal he looks a very instinctive player. So would you leave him on loan or bring him back and have him as a backup rather than origi?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - It is a case of whether or not he will get enough game time at Liverpool. Otherwise another loan to Swansea would do him a lot of good.}

05 Jul 2020 21:44:58
Thanks ed. I hope if it is another loan I'd like us to have the chance to bring him in the winter transfer window if he's banging in goals. While i like origi and will his place in fans memories for a while but i don't think he's the answer and would be good to see if brewster is upto the necessay standard.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - That is extremely difficult to do and would likely mean that Swansea would need to breach the agreement.}

05 Jul 2020 22:10:05
Ok. I didn't know that. Thanks for the reply. Just hope he has a good season and is ready to make an inpact when he returns.

Agree2 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 08:11:28
I have seen a few Swansea fans saying he gets very little service and still manages to a score. Seems like has a natural finisher. I guess another loan will Do him good, but I don’t see him replacing firmino yet.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 11:29:42
He’s done really well, he’s scored some cracking goals, I know he’s missed one or two sitters, but he’s a young lad, it happens. The important thing is he picks himself up and doesn’t dwell on it, he’s confident to back himself to try again, the free kick against Millwall was a superb goal, takes real guts to have a go from there at his age. His record works out to roughly one in every two games which I think is good going. Fingers crossed he has what it takes to kick on for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

08 Jul 2020 19:01:31
Another goal notched this evening with the game currently at HT. I'd like to see him spend another full season on loan playing week in week out, he's still young and keeping him as back up at this stage of his development could be harmful to his potential growth.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 15:39:41
Hi Eds, what's your opinion on Shaqiri looking ( according to the athletic ) like he might stay?
They said as well that Harry Pickering is a cheap option as a backup left-back.
Also do you know of any interest in Hoffenheim youngsters Nick Breitenbucher and Melkamu Frauendorf?
Seen some reports on them lately.
Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have to consider what they can sell Shaqiri for and how much they could spend on a replacement for the first team squad. If there is no interest it leaves little choice than to stick with him. Many clubs are looking at trading players and few have cash to spend.

Harry Pickering (LB) Crewe Youngster watched at the start of the year by Brighton, Reading and Watford.
Melkamu Frauendorf (AM) is a well thought of 16 year old and I know Union Berlin made an enquiry that was rejected for family reasons, but a transfer to the Liverpool and the UK at this time would be very complicated, although potentially possible.
Nick Breitenbucher (LW/RW) There have been discussions between Hoffenheim and Chelsea about the kiddie but there is also interest from Schalke who are looking at exchanges, kids and Free Agents.}

05 Jul 2020 17:55:35
Eds, what is in the way of the Carlos/ Shaq part exchange? Is this dependent on Lovren being moved on first? if so, how likely is that?
cheers.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Right now Liverpool do not have the money to make it happen and Seville are working on another option whilst other clubs have a declared interest in Diego Carlos.}

05 Jul 2020 21:49:01
Is that Ronny Pickerings brother?!

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 22:44:03
Ed, would Diego Llorente be a more affordable option to Diego Carlos? Have Liverpool looked at him?

Thanks.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes he would.}

05 Jul 2020 14:45:29
Victor Osimhen is/ could there be money for him if JK listens to this scout?

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - No Barry.}

05 Jul 2020 14:59:30
I don’t see the fuss with Osimhen, he needs about 6 or 7 shots to get a goal and more often than not his efforts end up in the keepers hands or in the stands. Can’t see what he offers that we don’t already have in Origi in terms of being a big quick target man. Other than filling Lille’s coffers to the tune of £70m and us not getting a £70m player, surely we should learn from Arsenal getting mugged off over Nicolas Pepe?

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 21:52:06
Sorry for the badly worded question Ed002 but at least you understud it mate and thanks for the reply.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No problem Barry.}

04 Jul 2020 13:08:14
Hello Eds, hope you all are doing well.

During last summer's transfer window, our club correspondents were reporting about Liverpool wanting to sign a left sided player who would provide cover to positions on the left flank. An year later we are still in the same place as it is one area we could strength on. Saka would have made a lot of sense but he has since then signed a new deal at Arsenal. Are you aware of any player/ s of such profile LFC are looking at currently? Thanks.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Saka was not going to be an option. Liverpool looked at Cantwell as a replacement for Lallana but that interest has gone with the financial issues arising from the pandemic. Rishica is a player who could cover the wings but perhaps Minamino could do that without spending money. If the club want a back up left back and don't trust the two at the club, then some one like Juan Castillo might be worth looking to.}

04 Jul 2020 13:46:52
Cheers for the round up. Do you reckon we could make a move for Willian this summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No I don’t.}

04 Jul 2020 14:52:29
Might move for Rashica if Werder Bremen get relegated and Shaqiri leaves.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 16:54:53
Thanks Ed002 for the insight. IMO, Minamino has struggled due to his lack of pace and lack of physicality. Obviously Klopp sees something in him. But playing on the wings does not help the team due to his obvious lack of pace.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool cannot keep adding players without others leaving. If Minamino is not up to it he needs to be moved on.}

04 Jul 2020 16:56:54
If AC Milan go back for Antonee Robinson or even another player in that position then I wonder if Laxalt would be available.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It would be a viable solution but interest in him from Liverpool has gone - but he is available.}

04 Jul 2020 21:33:22
Powerful, I respectfully disagree with your assessment as I feel it is a bit early to judge him just yet. Klopp is very slowly integrating him into the team. He has the skill and ability to be a really strong contributor. Personally, I don't think he should be playing on the wing, I see him more as a Firmino backup and eventual replacement. As a side note, I'd still LOVE to see Julian Brandt come to Liverpool. I think he'd be an extremely strong addition to the front line and could fill in nicely for Salah or Mane.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 21:55:13
sorry stone mate ya wrong. he's a good player but not enough. we need better quality and we prob already have it at the club, if not should be able to buy it as the best footy team in the world.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 22:09:41
respect rsanchez. thank you for your reesponse.

Also, I'd like to say that for the future, I'd absolutely love to see Weston McKennie at Liverpool. I think he has tremendous potential.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 22:23:13
also powerful and rsancez, thank you for the differing opinions. respect to you both.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 23:28:03
I agree with stone. Abit more service an quicker reactions minamino would be class. Brandt would be a great signing but can't see bvb letting him go.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jul 2020 23:38:10
Nice to see posts with strong disagreement being received with respect and manners, as often we can forget to argue our points without a narrow minded approach myself very much included. Fair play guys, refreshing to read.

Agree5 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 01:30:31
Minamino may turn out to be lacking in pace and power. However .

Robbo, Fabinho, Ox and others have all been integrated after months of being at the club. Remember all the posts to the eds asking what was wrong with Fab. I can't judge the kid yet because he hasn't had the time. Klopp and the player deserve to be given time to develop. Until that time its got to be support we give them.

Agree4 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 11:31:07
Minamino looks pretty pacey to me and although he’s not done anything so far in a Liverpool shirt his chances have been minimal. You also have to factor in that he is coming to a new country and Klopps track record with slowly integrating players into the team and I’m personally not going to write him off just yet.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 12:31:33
I'm not worried at all about minamino being a flop, I sense he has the tools perfectly suited to follow the same route as the others that klopp avoided using until ready. I can fully trust that minamino will turn into another great addition as the people responsible for bringing him know exactly what he can bring to fit this team. He certainly seems like he's got a great attitude so that only adds to the potential level he can hit.

Agree2 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 15:10:13
agreed. patience is required, looks like he is going down the Robertson/ Fabinho route, and we all know how that turned out.

Agree1 0Disagree

05 Jul 2020 15:46:07
Guess we'll see today how we do without Firmino and with a more attacking midfield - exciting.
