Hi all, long time follower of the site and I appreciate the hard work the eds do for us. Question- is there any interest in Roberto Firmino? Tried search and could not find much info. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

26 Jun 2022 09:11:24
Thank you, have a great day!

Bobby's going to be the only one who stays beyond the end of the contract?

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 18:05:14
I hope not giving Bobby an extension would be a poor decision.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2022 07:44:29
Yes yes please a new contract for Bobby. We've replaced Sadio and can replace Mo, but Bobby's smile is irreplaceable! Would be perfect backup to Nunez for another 2-3 seasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 20:48:15
Linked with Otavio today who im sure we actually were interested in at one point? . The report says Porto rejected £26m from Leeds and ‘believe’’ we’ll come in with an offer closer to their £38m valuation. If true sounds like we’ve spoken to his agent about a move. Hopefully some truth.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 21:12:55
Couldn’t you say the same about Arsenal bidding for Raphina though?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 21:27:19
Think he'd make some sense - could backup Salah and play RCM on Klopp's system - seems a pressing machine. Wouldn't want him to block too many of Elliott's minutes though.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 22:18:25
Fingers crossed. He is absolutely perfect for a Klopp team. Could play anywhere across the front 3, or in midfield as an 8 or 10. Such a good and versatile player!

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 22:38:15
Ed002 you knowledgable man, are you aware of any change regarding Otavio? You have previously stated we may be interested but do you expect we will make a bid soon or simply twatter nonsense?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I am aware of additional interest and was expecting Liverpool to try and do something but I get shot down by those who repeat the business doing mantra.}

25 Jun 2022 23:54:39
What does “get shot down by those who repeat the business doing mantra” mean

I don’t know anything about Otavio but cool if his style suits klopp.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about him before.}

26 Jun 2022 00:05:43
I honestly believe Ed002 that Liverpool will go all out to sign him my friend.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 03:14:32
Ed2 knows his sh*t and has put a list of potential targets multiple times.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 03:56:40
Ed002 is the dog's do das😁.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 07:42:52
Ed002 shot down but still flying. I’ll take your word over theirs thank you very much. Have a good day!

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

26 Jun 2022 08:10:56
Similar to the Diaz situation Ed002? That you feel it may accelerate the reds interest?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what that means.}

26 Jun 2022 08:30:21
You had said you were aware of additional interest, and that you were expecting Liverpool to try something. I thought, maybe it was similar to the Diaz situation. Where Tottenham's interest in him accelerated our bid to get him. Now Leeds "reported" interest may force Liverpool to act faster for Otavio.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I see what you mean. No, that won't impact anything.}

26 Jun 2022 09:02:46
Thanks as always Ed!

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 11:02:10
So do you expect us to sign him eds? Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

26 Jun 2022 12:14:01
Rumours seem to be doing the rounds and all saying we are going to bid for him. Never seen him play. Would he fit in ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 10:01:07
Ed002: Is there any truth in the Werner from chelsea Rumour?

I personally don't expect there to be anything in this, but any info you have would be appreciated.

Thanks for all you do across all the sites.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (F/LW) Bayern Munich discussed the player with Chelsea and were open to a possible part exchange but Chelsea were not interested in the player offered. Borussia Dortmund were keen to add Werner and Chelsea are open to letting him go, but interest may be waning. Juventus has declared an interest during a recent meeting with Chelsea as they fear the loss of Dejan Kulusevski - and that discussion may well lead to a part exchange being proposed. Barcelona and Atletico have enquired after his availability. Will leave if the right offer arrives. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool.

25 Jun 2022 12:24:44
Thank god Ed002.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has his phone number of course.}

25 Jun 2022 12:25:21
To quote Dave Bassett, “He couldn’t hit a cow’s a#se with a banjo”.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 13:21:09
I actually think Werner would be some player under Klopp. I don't think for a second it'll happen but there is a reason he was interested all those moons back.

Agree7 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 15:51:57
Hope you’re not suggesting that all Klopp has to do is “Tap” in Werner’s number Ed002? 😉.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 17:15:08
Agreed WYred he could be Torres in reverse, awful at chelsea yet good in a reds shirt.

I still remember how excited most of us were when we thought he was nailed on to join us.

If Klopp was to dial the number i don't think he would get reported for tapping up on this occasion!

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed0666's Note - I agree with you & WYRred the only difference between a heralded Werner and a ridiculed Werner is hitting the post a tonne of times, wretched luck and composure in front of goal which was largely due to the lack of confidence. There is a real player in there and like you guys said I think klopp could really harness and nurture that. For me Werner would have been a cheaper alternative to Nunez and maybe even a safer one. I’m ready for the abuse. 😂

25 Jun 2022 17:35:28
I’m a Chelsea fan but I will absolutely concur with those who said that a lot of his failings are simply a matter of failings on the clubs side. He played acceptably under a terrible manager (Lampard) when he was signed. Then Tuchel came in and introduced a system that isn’t at all suited to his strengths. This and his poor luck shattered his confidence and the Lukaku signing was the nail in his coffin. I fully well expect him to go to another team and light it up just to make the imbeciles who slag him off look like the muppets that they are.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 17:37:05
Hopefully Nunez is better than Werner. Won't our next forward purchase be a replacement for Salah i. e. a scoring winger who can cut in and find the spaces Nunez leaves when he comes wide or into the #10 spot.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 17:18:35
Wasn't Werner swerved because he's not great in tight spaces/ bus parking situations? He is not suited to the EPL and needs to goto a slower, less physical league asap.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - No, that wasn’t it.}

25 Jun 2022 18:23:55
I’d take Werner for a reasonable price. Wasn’t it something to do with hearing/ crowd noise etc not tight spaces?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - No.}

25 Jun 2022 19:05:18
I think Werner would be great under Klopp. However we don’t need him now with Diaz and Nunez capable of playing on the left and Jota, Bobby and Nunez capable of playing through the middle. It’s a left sided attacker we need.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 19:05:36
Right sided I meant to say!

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 19:22:49
Taki, Mane and Div replaced with Nunez doesn't add up. When is Gakpo getting announced?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 19:30:19
I try and watch as much football as possible, even if it’s not Liverpool. Watched a lot of Chelsea games over the last two years and we shouldn’t go anywhere near him. Seems like a nice lad and in a way feel sorry for him at times. But he simply cannot grasp the offside line and makes all the wrong decisions most of the time. Also he finishing is below par, which was surprising when you compare him to the Werner of Red Bull. What he does have is pace but pace without football intelligence is useless. Just have to look no further than a certain Mr. Adama Traoré for an example of that.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 20:32:44
Werner didn't happen because we wanted extended payment terms, and Chelsea was able to pay the £47 Million upfront. That's why and how we got Jota a couple of months later in the summer of 2020; Wolves gave us extended payment terms on the
£41 Million (plus add-ons) .

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 21:26:38
@Spaceman, you forgot Diaz and Carvalho. Nunez, Diaz and Carvalho have replaced Mane, Taki and Div.

Agree4 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 10:35:23
Taki and Div hardly needed replacing with the amount of minutes they played in the league. Cup games I see Gordon playing the minutes Taki did in the early cup rounds. With Bobby Jota as the main back ups to are forwards no AFCON this season so we won’t be losing 2 of are main forwards less minutes to go around it all so looks as if Ox is staying for at least the last year of his contract we seemed stacked with players. For me if we do sign anybody else this window we need to get rid of players first that are not going to play to many minutes. Like if we do sign another midfielder Naby and Ox need to go otherwise we are just going to be blocking Elliott and Carvalho’s minutes.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 12:28:51
Is it possible we might have injuries Grino? That might impact game time.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2022 18:09:30
I'd happily swap Jota for Werner - Don't shoot me - Jota makes me feel like his ability is capped. Whereas Timo is a Kinder Surprise. Just presently without the paper instructions inside!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 07:43:23
Again, I don't take morning tabloid headlines as anything other than speculation, however, have any of the Eds got fresh insight into Mo leaving potentially this summer for an alleged 60 mil? and if so who they would have in mind to replace him? Many thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I have answered repeatedly about potential replacements. I am not aware of any £60M offer for the player.}

25 Jun 2022 17:41:24
This may be heresy but if someone offers us £60m then I honestly think we should accept it. It’s daft money for a 30 year old player whichever way you look at it and we’ll be able to invest that in a younger model.

He would leave with my absolute best wishes, the same way as Rush did In the ‘80s and this team would quickly move on from his going.

No room for sentiment in football, why wait a year and the get £0 for him.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 19:08:47
I would jump at the chance to get 60m for Salah. I know the upheaval is a risk but why wait when we can move on Now. Much prefer to reinvest now and let someone come in to start developing now rather than lose him for nothing, have to reinvest with no incoming resource and to have used the season playing someone who doesn’t see their future with us. Each to their own though and so long as he performs I will always support him, and I am sure he will. Whatever people may say about him he is quite professional, interviews aside!

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 21:28:32
As it originates in The S*n I'd be disinclined to believe it. They're the least likely to know if it was being planned, unless Ramy Abbas has become even more of a tosspot lately.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 23:57:25
I’ve been advocating to sell Mo a season guy when the price was highest. . . But this isn’t great timing now imo especially after having sold Mane. Really don’t think losing the top 2 front that group is ideal prep for the new season. Much rather let him go for free.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 05:01:57
Mo to Real Madrid for 80 million Euro.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 06:56:08
Considering his has just 3-4 years left in his career, being the Star player and not being the highest earner at Liverpool he is right to seek higher wages somewhere else. What they say a bird in hand is better than 2 in bush.

TBH, he beat De Bruyne for PFA player of the year on half the wages. Also when he sees Sterling/ Grelish/ Werner/ Lukaku earn more than him and not perform anywhere near to his level he is right to seek more or turn his.

Isn't it what every employee does?

Sure Liverpool FC won't break the wage structure. I wouldn't want to stand in his way if any club offered decent amount for him.

The pressure should be on scouting team to identify a replacement in this window itself who can slot in seamlessly.

I bet if Man City or Chelsea comes and offer Liverpool 50+ mil for him and huge salary.

Agree5 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 08:29:30
Salah doesn't have 3-4 years left in his career. Dude has never tasted Alcohol and is incredibly fit. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if he keeps getting better until he is 33-34 and then keep on playing at a very high level until 35-37.

Agree10 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 08:44:02
Donot rule out Juventus in this move. It will drag but Salah can leave before the window ends. There is a push from Liverpool to see to that effect.

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 08:53:29
We would be mad not to take it but unfortunately it's nonsense.

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:30:57
Who's out there and available to replace salah and his 30+ goals (not sure of the total)?

Agree5 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:37:37
Mo will be one of those players who the significance of what he has achieved will probably be seen more when he leaves.

Agree7 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 10:06:12
you don't know what you've got till its gone! Salah will be greatly missed, but he will be replaced and life will go on.

Agree9 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 10:24:21
Agreed King Kenny and Warmachine.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 11:27:24
I find it crazy that fans are happy to push mo out the door but we're sad to see mane leave. Absolute madness it is. How do you replace the best player in the league 4 years running exactly? Mental some people's views are.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 11:43:57
If he leaves this window, there could be some adjustment time needed for new players to bed in, which could write off our league hopes .
Even if he doesn't leave until next summer, we still need a replacement to bed in before that happens, so either way, this window we need to RW/ RF.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 12:14:38
Some fans are happy to push Mo out the door because he will be walking out that same door in a years time. With that in mind, id snap off the hand of a club who offers 60m for him. He scores 30 goals a season but in my opinion so would a lot of forwards in our set-up as we produce an insane amount of goalscoring chances. Id be happy to cash in now and spend the dosh on the next future star.

Agree7 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 14:15:38
If (and I mean if) Salah did leave (and to be clear, I’m behind him, I don’t want him to leave) and went to Real Madrid, would there be a chance for a deal including Toni Kroos coming to us?

Apparently Kroos has turned down his contract offer from them, I know he isn’t young but play a slightly different formation with Kroos and Thiago behind Nunez and Diaz, that would be worth a watch!

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 15:23:47
One the one hand, i would be sad to see him go. He's been a great player for us. On the other, he has been playing shoddy for us for a few months now, and i can't help but believe that is down to the contract negotiations first, with a bit of burnout second. I really can't see that keeping him for another year is in our best interests, as can anyone really expect him to give 100% next season? If we get some money now (£60 mill is a pipe dream IMO) then we should do so. Use it to get a replacement who's focus is on the cause.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 15:36:20
I know you never want to lose a player for free.

But Top scorer, Top assists, Premier League player of the year. Probably best to keep him.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 15:25:12
Our set-up is super, but it also has something to do with the top players carrying the instructions out. We have 4 or 5 players that could be the best in the world in their positions. Salah is one of them.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 16:35:04
True Jadon but the other side of that is he wasn't one of the top players when he signed. He achieved it through excellent coaching, a great set up to get the best from him and his own dedication and hard work. That alone gives me hope that should he go then another player with his type of work ethic could step in and replace his goals. Who that player is I've no idea but I'll bet Klopp and company have him identified.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 17:02:23
People are sad to see Mane go because he didn't let his intention to leave drag on throughout his time with us. Since Salah came, as great a player he is, there has been story after constant story of him wanting to move leaked via his agent and constant hawking him about. Before anyone says that's his agent not him, his agent is an employee of salah and had he really wanted to stay could have instructed his agent to stop the constant trying to get Barca/ Real or whoever this week, and if he refused sack him. Great player but not greater than the club, get what we can and get rid.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 18:09:47
Was that from the same source as your man from Lyon telling you this when we got Houssem Aouar in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 23:55:22
Wasnt one of the best players when he signed? he literally came in and scored every game from day one when all we hear is it takes players months tô get used to klopps system. Whether people want to admït it cos they are sore at the thought of him leaving, Salah is a level above and has been for 5 seasons straight.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 20:06:42
Hi Ed, I think we previously had interest in Cornet. Is that interest completely gone. Also is Tsimikas likely to stay and play backup to Robbo again.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Kostas Tsimikas (LB) Liverpool see him as a makeweight and are tring to use him to reduce the cash value of contracts. Maybe Adam Lewis or Beck have a chance.}

24 Jun 2022 20:34:46
How does being a makeweight work Ed002?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - A replacement for cash - so £10M plus KS equals £18M.}

24 Jun 2022 20:54:38
I'm completely lost on this one! Are we keeping kostas? Love him.

Agree9 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 20:50:01
Ah ok thanks Ed002.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 21:04:58
Adam Lewis just went on loan to league 2 ed002 so he is not even close to being good enough am afraid.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to get rid of all of the youngsters if they are not good enough.}

24 Jun 2022 21:52:00
I love him as well Marty but I think what Ed002 is saying is that Kostas maybe included in any future player deal to make up for cash but please tell me if I'm wrong.

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 21:19:47
Who might we want to use a makeweight for Ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Anone.}

24 Jun 2022 21:35:33
well we just sent him on loan to league 2. so maybe Owen beck can step up :)

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 23:15:45
He is by far better in the final 3rs than Robbo. He's decent all round to be fair. Got to be worth 25 mil.

Agree9 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 23:57:45
I have great time for Kostas.

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 05:02:17
The thing is - as we have seen with Div and Taki - there is no point in keeping players, or at last players who have ambitions to play regularly, if they aren’t going to get regular game time for us.

Look at our options at left back. We have Robbo, Tsimi, Owen Beck and Adam Lewis and there are probably another two or three working their way through the youth ranks. basically we need two players who specialise in the position and a more ‘all rounder’ who can cover if both first and second choice are injured. We have at least four players who can fill the role. At what point does Tsimi’s (like Taki’s) patience run out.

Look at the options at right back. We have TAA (at 23 probably the best in the world who will only improve to new levels over the next 4 or 5 years) . Ramsay, who most people who have seen him (and quite a lot who haven’t) think is the best thing since sliced bread, Neco Williams, Conor Bradley, Sepp Van den Berg, Joe G (as the all rounder) . Again we need two with the all-rounder as back-up.

Whilst it is great that we have so many options there are probably better options for those who aren’t going to be regulars at Liverpool. If we can make money money and also help youngsters onto a better career path then I’m very happy with that.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 07:35:20
In all fairness West Derby, I don't think you can just list all the players at the club and call them genuine options. Robbo and tsimakas are our left backs, trent and maybe Ramsey now right backs. Joe is a cb, who can play there, if klopp keeps him even, nico will likely leave, sepp the same and will likely go on loan again (before being sold in a few years) . And the rest might get a game in the league Cup, there's only so many places on the bench, we've a big squad so it won't be often a young left or right back will be on it to get mins when you have players like milner, he do, Joe who you trust to cover.

Agree5 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 08:47:48
Thing will other clubs is they rotate more then Klopp.
Most clubs would have given Robbo more breaks and tsimikas more minutes he is that good as a replacement.
The only irk I have about Klopp is other then his preffered set of 15 16 players we don’t see rotation as much as we should. In terms of substitution and starts.
Taxi OX divo and tsimikas are most impacted by this and I think they all should leave for more regular playing minutes. Or if they are happy collect medals and paycheck with less play time.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:02:04
Kostas is going nowhere this summer folks - nothing to see here.

Agree8 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:27:49
You can’t just sell every player who isn’t playing 30+ games a season. Kostas seems really happy at the club. I doubt we value him at £8m as Ed suggested. Outrageous figures.

Agree8 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:30:33
Kostas is a great player, he hardly gets game time because of Robbo, but Kostas is a much better the crosser of the ball than Robertson. Robertson is a low across the ground but Kostas is more higher up and direct. Defending and tracking back is where Robertson is beats Kostas outright

Love him to stay longer at the club.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 23:06:59
Kostas will get more starts this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 14:58:48
Is there any interest in Ox or Naby hoping Carvalho and a fit Elliott take up there minutes this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new.}

24 Jun 2022 16:13:20
And Jones gets more minutes too.

Agree4 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 17:02:47
I’m sure Klopp will give the minutes to the players impressing and working the hardest in training.

Ball is firmly in all players courts on selection.

Agree8 Disagree0

24 Jun 2022 19:37:30
Spot on JK!

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2022 09:08:17
Agreed JK. Naby was ahead of Jones last season, its up to Jones to show he has the ability to replace Naby, that goes for Elliott too. If Naby is as crap as everyone thinks then it shouldn't be an issue to take his spot.

Agree1 Disagree0
