So standing next two chaps in the shops and one was convinced Nabby and ox plus £60 million for Rice.
No idea where the got that from but apparently it's not that bad for them and looks likely.
One was of the opinion he comes to is to help cement his place in the England team. I would personally think he's one of the 1st on the team sheet anyway?

😂 3💩 4

{Ed0666's Note - that’s the deal of the century for us. If that comes off at the prices you mention that’s not just daylight robbery the guys at west ham should be fired for being woefully inept at their job

24 May 2022 18:36:19
Isn't he out of contract next summer? Not saying there's any chance but it will be the absolute steal of the century.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - who Rice? His deal runs till summer 2024 with an option for a further year. Or so I found online

24 May 2022 18:59:10
Great if it happens 😂 i bet Rice has played more minutes in the last 3 seasons on his own, than Ox and Naby combined.

Klopp is a HUGE admirer of Rice.

I’d rather have Chicken fried Rice to be honest.

As much as I think Rice is a good player I am not sure he is what our team needs even if we could afford him, which we can’t. I think we are doing a good job of ensuring the future of our front line and midfield with recent purchases (Diaz, Jota) and bringing through/ purchasing midfield youth (Jones, Elliot, Carvalho) . Whilst Konate is good I despair for the day VVD drops his standards or retires. He is different class and looking long term to replace him should be priority number one from now until we find that player. Just my opinion of course but I completely agree with Jamie Redknapps comments the other week that he is our most important player by a country mile.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I agree with all this apart from ‘Konate is good’ and ‘ensuring the future of our front line with purchase of Jota’

24 May 2022 21:24:21
Haha all about opinions I suppose Ed. I’m not going to criticise a striker scoring +20 goals this season for us not a defender that I believe has still not lost in a red shirt! Might be wrong on that last one not double checked!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - Jota doesent isn’t even a super sun anymore he’s just a body. I would have loved to have given Divvy a new contract, sold Jota and bought in a replacement who can actually play football. Konate is ponderous, indecisive and positionally suspect but I’ll give him the time he deserves to improve and bed in.

24 May 2022 21:49:23
Jota guaranteed to score in the champions league final now then, thanks Ed0666.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I’m willing to bet against it mate

24 May 2022 23:30:52
Chicken Fried Rice?
:D :D :D.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 23:10:55
You don't have talk balls Ed0666.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I respect your opinion mate and your welcome to it.

24 May 2022 23:29:46
Konate has been very good Ed0666. Still settling in a new country and new league. Scored in the 2 CL quarter finals scored in the penalty shoot out in league cup and scored in an FA Cup semi-final. Of course he's had a couple of mistakes but so has Matip and Virgil at the start of the season. Apart from all that you could be right 👍.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - as I said mate I respect your opinion it’s just different to mine and I get to differ on what I’ve seen so far.

24 May 2022 23:54:19
Keep origi and sell jota. You guys read one of ed001’s criticisms of Jota and think he’s the worst player in the world. He certainly has his flaws (I agree with ed001 his build up play is infuriating at times) . But he is very good at doing the most important thing in the game. Scoring goals.

I love divock, but he is not even close to being as good as jota.

Agree7 0Disagree

25 May 2022 02:20:58
Konate has made a few howlers and got away with most of them. Having said that, he oozes potential. he's big, strong, fast and as an ex-striker can find the back of the net. Once he irons out a few of his lapses in concentration he could be world class.

Agree6 0Disagree

24 May 2022 20:58:46
Ensuring we have a player capable of playing box to box and holding midfield seems sensible to me as we really don’t have anyone at the club really capable of competently doing that and there’s no one coming through that looks like they can. The only thing about Rice is that £150m is a lot for a fella who has the turning circle of the QE2.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 May 2022 21:09:40
Rice has got City Utd or chelsea written all over him. We do not pay premiums for over priced English players.
Since we are missing out on Tchouameni, i hope we are able to get both an understudy for Thiago and a bissouma/ Sangare type. Our MF needs some work.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 06:43:03
Ed66 are you mad ‘loved to give divok a new contract and sell jota’? Divok has scored 22 goals since joining us in 2014. Jota has scored 24 since joining us! Take your red tinted glasses off, origi wasn’t and isn’t good enough and it’s that simple. And don’t say he didn’t get a fair chance, if he was good enough he’d of played more.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - I’d keep divvy as a sub and again sell Jota and buy someone to replace him that can play football. Tell me what Jota does when his goals dry up? He doesent press that we’ll anymore, he certainly can’t pass, he can’t shoot on target, his first touch is abysmal, he has no awareness of space or his teammates, his crossing sucks, he stunk the place out on Sunday before he went off and he’s been awful for a while. Before you counter with so has Salah he has mitigation and extenuating circumstances.

25 May 2022 07:25:07
I’m not arguing over jota, the only thing I can say in his favour is he knows where the net is. Origi does nothing of what you’ve just mentioned, I think I must be the only fan glad to see the back of him. Personally I’d like to see taki get more of a chance, think he has 9 goals this season from 10 appearances. He’s a little lightweight but I’d like see him get a run to see how he gets on.

Agree3 0Disagree

25 May 2022 07:46:24
Actually agree with Ed. Jota's value is at it's peak, there is bound to be a fool to overpay for him, oh hello Arsenal and Newcastle. One thing Origi hasn't done is rock the boat with the lack of game time, he was in France, with us, germany, had some bad luck with injuries, I think he was content to being being a sub and a cup player, be on a winning team, collect trophies and medals.

Btw, Konate gives me Mamadou Sakho vibes the way he plays defense.

I wouldn't play Declan Rice over Fabinho and his price tag will make people scream to shoehorn them together or play him over Fabinho.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2022 09:03:00
Klopp picked Jota himself, so is unlikely to bin him. It seems that since his great song came along, Jota has been bang average. He is a sub at best.
Which other EPL based players, who may be available could be brought in to save to long a bedding in period?

I wonder if Mane/ Mo leaves, that we may ping in a bid for Martinelli. He looks ream.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 10:20:27
I think Jota does better coming on from the sub's bench, rather than being a starter, even if he occasionally proves me wrong.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2022 11:57:46
Ed, I agree with you about Jota. I would sell him as well, but instead of buying a replacement I'd give one of the kiddies a shot.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 13:09:01
Love these type of rumours. Two blokes in the corner shop, much like, bloke down the pub.
Rice could be the new Hendo/ succession plan.
He is not worth 5 times what we'd pay for a foreign equivalent though, i'd rather we nurtured the young English players we have to fill that role eventually.
With such fine margins winning league titles, we need to shop smart.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 08:10:55
Ed0666 am with you on Jota he is an awful footballer but he was scoring goals at the beginning but even that has stopped now. As for Konate he has got better as the season as gone on but still has a massive mistake in him but he is only young and it’s his first season playing for us coming from a back 3 to a back 2 after a couple of very bad injury hit seasons so hopefully he can get better as he has all the attributes to be a world-class defender.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - yes I agree mate I said I would want to give Konate time as he deserves it. Don’t get me started on Diogo…have a good day mate.

25 May 2022 18:30:46
jotas form has dipped because of the arrival of Diaz. he's been moved outside and mane inside. He can't play on wing put him CF and he scores.
Most headed goals this season,
15 league. 1 less than MANE
4 assists. 2 more than MANE

and Mane is awesome.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 19:19:35
@Riomazy, Mane is awesome! But I feel his is also leaving. : (.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 21:48:15
Spot on Riomazy. Jota is far more effective through the middle than he is out wide.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2022 21:57:55
Jota works fine in our squad he’s a different outlet to the other players which we need at times. Baffles me how critical our fans can be.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 23:16:23
Blair Mayne. Wow. Blast from the past right there.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2022 04:52:34
Assuming we loose 1 up to 3 forwards
Origi
Minamino
Mane
Maybe Salah.

We need to get at least 2 or 3 to add to firmino and jota and Diaz

Nunez from Benfica and Denis from watford.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 12:56:23
Lots of reports coming out with regards to Tchouameni at the moment.

English media: LivEcho (fairly unreliable) and Maddock (also unreliable) from the Mirror have said he's destined to join Madrid.

French Media: RMC (reliable) have stated he's agreed terms with both RM and LFC with a decision over his future sometime this week. Lequipe (semi reliable) have stated that the midfielder wants to join Liverpool.

24 May 2022 13:37:14
Just to add onto this (pressed send accidentally)

Spanish media are reporting that they see the player joining Liverpool.

Any updates from the Eds? It seems that Liverpool might have agreed personal terms and are now speaking with Monaco over a fee? Could be incorrect and should we hold our breath over it?!

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Forget the personal terms - nobody has an agreement with Monaco.}

24 May 2022 13:55:31
I saw Paul Mitchell claim that they would have to be 'aggressive offers' - you've previously mentioned that Monaco were looking to around €100mil, I would assume the final figure would be much lower than this?

Just wondering overall as it seems it could be a hugely expensive transfer.

Thanks as always! Also haven't seen much of WonderDogSparky as of late;)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It would have to be lower. Monaco quoted that originally to Chelsea and Real Madrid.}

24 May 2022 14:02:16
So are we taking from that Ed002 that personal terms cannot be agreed with a player until the parent club have agreed to allowing the interested parties to talk to the player? If this IS the case, do you ever think personal terms are agreed in “principle” behind closed doors based on the potential that said parent club May sanction the transfer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, you misunderstand. This is why I said ignore it.}

24 May 2022 15:51:34
Ed002 I'm aware the current situation at Chelsea means that they certainly are in no place to speak to Monaco surrounding a transfer, should this be resolved shortly could you see them also coming into the picture?

I'd assume that both Madrid and Liverpool will be aware of this and would look to seal a deal before Chelsea have an option to "swoop" in and attempt to sign the player.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that. Liverpool have had every opportunity to negotiate a deal with Monaco and the player - they have finally approached Monaco. Real Madrid and Chelsea have spoken to Monaco on several occasopns but, as you say, Chelsea cannot agree any transfer until the sanctions are removed with confirmation of a new owner. All three clubs have other players in a similar position that they are considering.}

24 May 2022 16:22:47
News breaking that he's moving to Madrid for around £70m - guess that's over then. I wonder who else is on the midfield list.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 17:18:13
Ed002, is one of those other players Kone from Borussia Monchengladbach?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No.}

24 May 2022 20:26:44
Is it news breaking on the Madrid site or just more clickbait?
People who buy into what they read with clickbait usually end up with egg on their faces.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 23:30:27
Hi Flash it was news from RMC (very reliable) and Fabrizio Romano (and other French journalists) claiming that Madrid were in talks with Monaco for a fee around €80mil+ and the player has his heart set on joining.

Since this has been revealed however bizarrely Spanish media have started stating that Madrid have absolutely no intention to pay that sort of money and that the player prefers a move to the Premier League. Very bizarre stuff - best to ignore for now as it's all up in the air.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 20:59:55
It’s pretty much a given, it’s been pretty much Madrid’s deal since Mbappe played them. We’ve acted too slowly and paid the price.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 07:59:24
Madrid needs a distraction after loosing out on Mbappe and will happily overpay to change the narrative.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 19:18:41
That's what I was hinting at Monkey. So called "reliable sources" still do their fair share of guessing or just making stuff up to keep the clicks coming.
And as for acting too slowly and paying the price V4, what price have we paid? Were we even in for the player?
And if he isn't signing for Madrid, who's to say he won't be signing for us?
Nobody knows except the clubs involved, the player and the agent. If he signs for us, all well and good. If he doesn't then we aren't going to collapse, we'll find a viable alternative.
Klopp and co know what they're doing.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 10:22:52
Ed002 is there a good chance Mane will move this summer with Bayern interest?

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to quantify "good" in that respect.}

24 May 2022 12:12:45
Theres always a chance any player will move. Ballers are transient by their nature so I never get in a twist when they do. Club is always more important than the individual. there's no loyalty when it comes to money and opportunities. Its the same in any job anywhere.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 13:34:51
Badly worded question Ed sorry mate. Are Bayern looking to sign him this summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

24 May 2022 21:10:49
Can see Mane moving on for a reasonable fee, Mo too.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2022 15:02:56
Mo just confirmed he'll stay at least another year and I imagine Sadio will do the same soon.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2022 22:42:25
Mbappe actually held talks with us! That’s 2 kicks in the b#%#%# in 24hrs 🙆🏻‍♂️🤣.

😢 4💸 1

23 May 2022 23:50:34
I thought it was clear 2 days back when Klopp said he's numbers were crazy and not for us. That was clear hint he's agent was talking to us.

It's good to see top players at that level are interested coming it just shows how far we've come with Klopp.

It's time to start focusing on improving our commercial/ sponsorship deals which I'm hearing very soon will break our shirt sponsor deal in the world let's hope it's true.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 04:36:57
That was in reference to Haaland.

About Mbappe he said more clubs would be crazy not to be involved, or some such.

Now the Klopp extension last month makes more sense.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:31:24
The only talks we ever held with Mbappe were when he was with Monaco.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:44:29
We were never in with a shout of Mbappe simply because of the financial demands involved.
Fans can dream and hope, but FSG ain't going to pay north of £500k a week on any single player's wages. And rightly so.

Agree6 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:51:50
Direct quote from Mbappe "I talked to Liverpool because it's the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool. I don't know why, you will have to ask her! It's a good club, we met them five years ago when I was at Monaco. It's a big club. "

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:58:25
Mbappe has shown money is his motivation so maybe we dodge a very expensive bullet, the numbers he is getting are a joke and that would us out of ever being in the mix for him.

Agree7 0Disagree

24 May 2022 08:08:59
Forget Mbappe he’s never coming to us and buy Nunez.

Agree6 0Disagree

24 May 2022 08:09:58
Not that we had a chance, I'm glad he didn't come. He's shown what's important to him and greed won! These multi millionaire's tweaking for an extra few million is absolutely disgusting! Totally lost touch with the real world these top stars! And don't even start me on the snake agents.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 08:23:15
Agree @LancasterRed. Obviously we look for talent but we also seem to look for the all round character of the person when assessing transfers these days. It seems to be working if that’s what we are actually doing.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 May 2022 08:23:41
Ed002, without poking the bear, I would be very interested to hear from you on how PSG are able to finance this Mbappe deal and stay within FFP, even in layman's terms, if possible?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have already answered this - how does it relate to FFP?}

24 May 2022 11:44:09
I know how talented mbappe is, but a player like that just wouldn’t fit at Liverpool anyways. As fun as it was to imagine (even though I never really paid it any attention, especially with ed002 saying no chance), we are better off with a cohesive pressing unit, and a team that would individually sacrifice for each other. Mbappe isn’t that.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 12:23:38
We'll never be a club that is going to pay those kinds of salaries. Our model is to pay the top tier salaries when they are into their third and/ or final contract with us.

Just to add to the mindboggling nature of Mbappe's deal - he's what 23 and will sign at least two more big deals in his career. Just think where that salary could go!

A similar story for Haaland and to a lesser extent Sancho - you can count the number of clubs that can afford to pay 21 year olds 300k+ pw and plan for those escalating salaries on one hand -with missing fingers.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 13:40:24
Imagine a club having to consult with a 23 year old kid who they can hire as his boss and his colleagues.
Another nail in the coffin that is football.
It’s a shame as well to be honest, it would have been interesting to see this guys career progression in one of the big leagues to see what he can do.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 15:09:38
Mbappe will cost in the area of around 200 Million for the duration of his 3 year extension. This is one fifth (approx. ) the cost of purchasing an EPL club (mid to lower table) .

That's how incredible this is.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2022 18:41:25
Do we have any interest in Ruben Neves?

Only 25 and improving by the game.

{Ed002's Note - No I think Liverpool will look to keep Fabinho.}

23 May 2022 19:05:56
Seems Salah's agent is working very hard in coming days instead of LFC vs Real will be dominated by Salah to Madrid 🙈🙈.

💩 1

23 May 2022 20:11:04
Only if you believe the clickbait crap that's out there.
Which clearly some do.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 May 2022 20:30:03
Not when Gab marcotti talks abt it he's one of the most respected journalist out there.

It's a Golden opportunity for Salah's agent coz Madrid are hurt and desperate for big name player after being rejected and kind of humilated publicly.

They've decent pot of money to spend and once again Salah's agent is trying if he can crack a deal for he's client. Can't get better opportunity then that when Both mbappe and Haaland rejected Madrid and opening door for Ramy Abbas to pitch he's client.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 May 2022 22:20:41
I hope Salah stays for a couple more years and develops a central forward role so we can integrate a younger player on the right wing. As for the Madrid game, the lads have enough experience to know what they need to do on the day. I don't think Madrid goading Salah will have much bearing on the game.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 04:38:20
Good.

If they offer anything above 50 million I would bite their hand off.

Agree5 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:43:41
Real Madrid have other targets but if they want anyone from here it won't be Salah. more like Sterling than Salah at the prices people are talking.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 07:48:53
All that "information" on Salah being gleaned from a journalist.
I've been reading every season how Salah is off to Real Madrid and folks on here convinced it's happening.
Yet Salah is still here.
Don't believe everything that you read.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 May 2022 09:14:13
I could care less if Salah leaves or stays. Until we have Klopp we have nothing to worry about. I have faith in Klopp and any player he brings in. Our recruitment has been fantastic over the last few year. Barring Naby we've not made one poor big money signing imo. So, I trust Klopp and his team to find a suitable replacement for Mo, if he does decide to leave.

Agree5 0Disagree

24 May 2022 10:19:46
And outa that 50 million you might get Ismaila Sarr and a small bit of change! No thanks i'd rather the player whos scored the most premier league goals over the last 5 years here.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 10:22:12
Sure why would Madrid want him anyway? he's been crap the last 3 months😉.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2022 15:18:21
It's a 50/ 50 thing for me, as to whether he stays or goes. On the one hand we say he is too old and no team will want to risk a large outlay for an older player. And then we see Barcelona being seriously interested in Lewandowski who at 33 is 3 years older. And on the other hand, LFC is still home for Salah. This is where he truly became world class. It won't be easy for him to leave just and only for the paycheck. Mbappe has clearly said that one of the reasons he has stayed is the desire to stay "home", for now.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 15:49:46
It's not that he's too old.

It's that he's not worth the money he is asking for.

Take away the penalties and about half a dozen players scored as many goals as he did.

And he is not integral to our team the way Ali, VVD or Thiago are.

So the idea that he should be paid more than them is nonsense.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 May 2022 20:13:54
Don't talk bollocks. he's 1 of the greatest in world football is salah. Team wouldn't be where they are if he wasn't here.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 May 2022 15:15:28
Ed002: forgive me if you have answered this question elsewhere but how will the upcoming season be played out that will include the world cup in quatar?

Also do you expect Neco williams to join fulham permanently?

{Ed002's Note - I expect NW will join Fulham.

Game 1: August 6 weekend
Last pre-break game: August 12 weekend
Resumes post break: December 26
Final games: May 28, 2023
}

23 May 2022 16:44:05
Much appreciated. Thank you.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2022 20:03:27
ed, would a fee of £8million be about right for Williams?

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2022 19:13:37
are you saying there is only 6 days between the season starting and the break ed002. could be a typo lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - well spotted - November.}
