Wow great rumour (aka nonsense) from the express this morning . Liverpool plan £215m bid for Mbappe which will see salah go to Real Madrid. Quality. I thought you only had to come here for made up rumours .

but you're secretly hoping one of the eds verifies this in the positive aye. lol :p.

I'd hate to see Salah go to be honest, been outstanding for us.

Agree9 Disagree0

08 Nov 2019 11:04:20
But if he did leave this guy would surely be an upgrade which is hard to come by.

Agree13 Disagree0

09 Nov 2019 07:17:40
Upgrade is a bit harsh, Salah has been quality for sure, but if he is set on leaving then we need a replacement that is at least as good.


Who knows what FSG have planned. Didn't they just off and buy Alisson without the club's involvement. I know any spending needs to be reconciled under FFP but if they shelled out what could be over £60m for a keeper then perhaps they will go big for a striker. But £200m+? I'd love the likes of Mbappe, but I'm not sure how I feel about the club/ owners spending that sort of money.

I know getting a world class CB and keeper was much needed but I would argue that those were special cases that were needed to complete picture - the missing pieces of the puzzle.

I hope we don't have to spend crazy money on outfield players in the future. I don't see how it's sustainable.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Nov 2019 08:16:07
You can't say the club won't spend that money but the 200m would be offset by any Salah sale so.

wont happen anyways!

His wages would blow our wage structure out the window, which would have a massive knock on effect, yer living on abs cloud cookoo land if ye think this has any possibility what so ever.

Agree6 Disagree0

09 Nov 2019 16:03:40
There is no question we are interested. Who wouldn't be? I think the wooing began a long time ago.

Klopp's comments probably to avoid annoying PSG, as Real Madrid appears to have done.

If Mbappe comes, it will doubtless be financed by players leaving. Or by sponsorship. At any rate, I would leave the money aspect to others.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Nov 2019 20:29:11
I agree port red, he’d want astronomical wages and then that really does open Pandora’s box.

Mbappe is not coming to Liverpool.

Spot on Reynard, klopp himself has killed this rumour before it gets out of hand.
He will join Real Madrid for the 2020/ 21 season and no we won't be signing Bale either.

“Travelling between now and Christmas “

Are you Father Christmas when not being Ed002?

Good afternoon Eds. I saw a report on ESPN that Crystal Palace is looking to bring in Brewster on loan for the rest of the season. It also stated there were a few Championship teams interested as well (Bristol and Swansea as I recall) . Just wanted to see if there was any truth to the Crystal Palace rumor. Thanks!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - yes but Liverpool will look to block it.}

01 Nov 2019 18:30:03
Thanks for the reply Ed!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Nov 2019 21:25:08
Do you think it’s a good idea to keep him here rather than a loan?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - It depends if he is going to get game time or not - right now a loan would make sense for the player but I doubt the club see it that way unfortunately.}

01 Nov 2019 23:07:11
I think right now we need to be cautious as 1 or 2 injuries would mean he'd be needed in matchday squad, with league cup, fa cup and club world cup he should be guaranteed another few starts before January window ends, I'd think a loan opportunity should only be evaluated when we analyse our situation come then.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Nov 2019 07:17:31
I personally think we need to keep Brewster, especially with the fixtures coming think and fast between now and the end of the season.

Agree5 Disagree0

01 Nov 2019 22:01:23
Agree, if he isn’t getting opportunities here he needs the game time! Do you think he would get game time at palace?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Yes.)

01 Nov 2019 22:56:59
Ed. 002

Obviously he was injured last season but if this had been then it would have made sense. Right now he is our second reserve behind Origi as a forward. When Studge, Ings, Solanke, etc. were at the club he was way down the pecking order. Injuries occur, cup competitions occur, etc. While it would make sense for the players development to go out on loan it would be foolish for the club to let him go out. I think this one is a no brainer.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Then it would be reasonable for him to want to move on in the summer.}

02 Nov 2019 19:02:42
If he can get regular premier league games it can only benefit him in the long run
A loan for me would be good.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Nov 2019 19:06:17
It's up to him but he's still only a teenager starting off his first season innvolved in the first team squad of the European champions. He knows he will have to be patient and I don't see the urgent rush for him to be demanding regular first team starting opportunites just yet, he'll get more game time as the season unfolds and it's up to him to show his potential. In 2 or 3 years our forwards will be passing into their 30s if they're all even still here by then, Brewster will only be 21 or 22 so I hope their isn't big pressure on him to feel he needs to rush his career.

If he's confident of his ability he'll want to stay and prove he's good enough. The likes of Abraham, Kane, rashford have shown that when they were given the rare chance in the team despite being down the pecking they took advantage with explosive immediate impacts. Brewster is still a kid who's coming back from a long injury. His career path doesn't need to be defined in the next year.

What I like is that klopp sees something in him to keep him around like he did with trent in his early days. He never wanted to keep Kent, Wilson, ojo around the team but he seems to have belief in young rhian which is great.

Agree5 Disagree0

02 Nov 2019 23:51:46
Fully agree with that Har. It’s not like we’re holding him hostage against his will. He’s being paid to be a member of one of the best squads in world football. Why on earth would he want to go out on loan?
His focus should be on learning exactly the way the manager wants him to play and working so hard at it that he can’t be ignored. The fact Klopp wants him to stay around puts him at an advantage to the likes of Grujic as he’ll have to adapt if and when he comes back.
I’d also say that if he starts to throw his toys out and wants to move due to lack of playing time he’s not got the required character to make it at the top anyway.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 01:03:55
Yeah beckers but I don't see that kind of attitude being in Brewsters personality. He seems like a decent level headed kid so i doubt hed be the type to throw toys out of the pram. We seen lately with Camacho and Duncan, both 18 year olds who wanted to move on, I've no issue with any player making a career choice to move on but it's how they both acted publicy made me glad they're gone, when 18yr olds who've proved nothing start letting their false ego show so young then I can't think they will have the right mentality to succeed. Camacho publically bemoaning the decision of his manager to play him out of position is appalling lack of respect while Duncan publically slating the club shows me he's another kid with the wrong attitude.

Then we see the likes of origi, multi million pound international player who spent time sent out on loan, along with other periods where he was frozen out but he kept his head down and earned his future at the biggest club he'll play for simply by doing his taking on the field and never bringing the club or staff into public dispute. I feel Brewster is more like origi than the other 2 egos.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 07:04:17
We need to start finishing games off earlier so that we can give players a run out.

If We are scraping results late on and this will limit opportunities for fringe players.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 07:44:04
Might be the right thing for him to want to move, but wanting to hang on to him might also be the right thing for the club.

It's taken Origi a long while to earn his place in the squad.

A lot can happen between now and the summer; we know one of our front 3 wants away so I guess it's up to Brewster to prove his worth.

I guess he could always go on loan, as Origi did (admittedly not under good circumstances), and see where he and the club are in a year.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 10:47:43
I think if he got 10 starts this season he'd have to be happy, at the moment he's on course to do exactly that, while getting to train with the best team in the world. No problem here, kid and club are happy. a nothing story!

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Nov 2019 10:57:37
Am I right in thinking he could go out on loan until January? If that's the case a decision should be made at the end of January based on what cups we are in. Got to imagination he will play the league and FA cup. Maybe a little in the champs league if we qualify early.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Oct 2019 21:14:42
Ed do we have Any interest in Denis Zakaria's?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - not that i know of mate..

29 Oct 2019 10:03:15
Hi Eds,

Heard yesterday on a transfer podcast that Liverpool have begun negotiations for Timo Werner, to buy now and loan back until Summer 2020. Any truth in this? Thanks

CarlosJackal.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - no.}

29 Oct 2019 12:49:47
Great player. Shame there's no truth in the podcast.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 11:20:30
i know we probably aren't in for him, but with his new contract a lot of news reported that it had a very low release clause so that he would sign. is this correct?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - no idea, but he wants to go to Bayern and they want to sign him.}

03 Nov 2019 12:13:31
Do you think it will ever change in the bundesliga, it seems as though any top German talent is just earmarked to move to Bayern at some point.

I’m pretty sure the Leverkusen manager said he’d prefer to see havertz go there than abroad. Surely you shouldn’t be saying that as the manager.

I guess lewandowski isn’t getting younger, good to get in Werner now to get up to speed.

Although I don’t see their coach surviving the season, who do you think will end up replacing kovac?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it will change as Bayern are falling behind in Europe and players will choose a chance of winning European competitions over Bayern in time.

I have no idea who will replace Kovac, though teams usually go reactive after a failed choice and look for something different. So maybe instead of a young, up-and-coming manager, they will go for a big name experienced man such as Mourinho.}

03 Nov 2019 13:53:58
Agree I’m hoping havertz is the first to make the move, but I feel like that is merely a fantasy!

Indeed I’m surprised Mourinho or wenger domt have new jobs now.

28 Oct 2019 16:07:33
Hi Ed’s
Do you have any info about kesiktas wanting to cancel karius loan?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - There may be a possibility of it happening but it is complex.}

28 Oct 2019 20:31:41
I thought he was performing ok recently?

Or are there other reasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Oct 2019 08:08:40
The new Besiktas President has his own views on balancing the books and what shape success should take. What is the penalty to Besiktas for canceling the loan, Ed002, if they go through with it?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Without seeing the contract I don't know - but rules are much stricter than they were.}

28 Oct 2019 14:55:53
Ive just sen that Ho'over will miss Wednesdays game as he is away at the u17 World Cup.

Will any of our other youngsters miss the game due to the tournament?

Also when is Elliots ban up?

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 18:30:13
I think he was banned for 14 days on 11th October. So, if it was effective from the day it was announced, he must be alright now!

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Oct 2019 02:07:12
Elliot is OK

I’d like to see a squad of

Origi - Brewster - Elliott
Keita - Hendo - Ox
Larouci - Lovren - Gomez - Milner
Kelleher (although I’d probably rather Adrian)

Rests our forwards, Fabinho and VVD while still a good mix of youth, but experience in midfield and at CB

Curtis Jones to come on off the bench.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Oct 2019 15:55:08
Is there any truth in the rumour Gomez wants out?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Oct 2019 22:45:56
Why cause he ain’t getting game time? He doesn’t deserve it and it goes for any player.

Agree8 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 06:31:49
I doubt it but if I was an EPL club in need of a quality centre back I would be testing LFC resolve with a bid around 50 million GBP but I suspect LFC would reject it and I think young Joe is clever enough to continue to be a part of this squad in the same way Lovren, Origi, Shaq, Ox, Keita, Lallana and Milner accept it.

Agree6 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 08:03:39
Lovren will be gone at the seasons end and there's very little to choose between Matip and Gomez when both are fully fit. The centre halves'll just have to fight for their place like the midfielders do. Gomez would be crazy to want to leave Lfc at the moment.

Agree4 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 08:49:03
It’s not even November yet! It’s not like he’s not playing at all, it is a case of Matip has played incredibly, up fo him to win his place back. Joe doesn’t seem like the type of guy to just give up that easily

I hope Square Tomato can clear these rumours up.

Agree8 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 10:51:24
Not only is it rubbish but we have someone on these boards (as a friend of Joe's) who can (if Joe wishes) confirm that it is utter nonsense.

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Oct 2019 17:17:18
Can’t imagine Joe is happy being behind Lovren in the pecking order.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Oct 2019 12:54:05
Joe is one of my favourite players. Amazing potential and a CL winner. I hope he sits patient for another year.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Oct 2019 22:02:06
This is all knee-jerk reaction stuff to presume Gomez must want out, simply because he's been kept out of the team for a short spell after shaky performances. This stage 12 months ago he was the hottest young CB around, he hasn't spent the year out of form or out of favour, he's been kept out due to his teammate on form and his own personal lack of form, . This is a short term current situation which will change for sure in the future, the lad is 22 and it's near impossible to see where he would think is a better place for his near and long term career to be, klopp likes him and is only protecting him in the same way he did Robertson, oxlade Chamberlain, fabinho. This time last year everyone was saying fabinho was unhappy and be gone in January.

Gomez has a big part to play in the future of this club, I've no doubt about that, . Let's not put so much pressure or expectation on him during a time where he needs to be left to regain his focus and confidence, he needs our support now more than ever.
