Ed2. Respect your opinion on transfers. Daily and Sunday Express seem to think the club, or should I say Michael Edwards is scheduled to meet Bissouma's agent tomorrow. Can we chalk this down to the media selling a story knowing we have an interest in him or is there some truth to this?

Alonso1786

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that three interested sides (there may be others) have spoken with Michael N'Cho about the player and two are serious options that will see if a deal can be reached. I don't know what his plans are for tomorrow.}


1.) 27 May 2021 21:07:25
Hey Alonso, Fabrizio confirmed today definite interest from Liverpool and Arsenal. Says that he's not first choice for Arsenal (looking at another style of midfielder) I suspect Buendia, Odegaard, Aouar etc.

Ed002 may I ask what sides are interested and the two serious options that Bissouma has? I didn't realise negotiations had moved so that concrete options were available. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Why do I have to keep explaining that Liverpool and Arsenal are very interested. It is particularly tiresome.}


2.) 27 May 2021 22:19:22
Thanks for time Ed2, much appreciated.


3.) 28 May 2021 08:57:23
Apologies Ed002. Note taken - Liverpool and Arsenal like him!


 

 

10 May 2021 11:52:34
Morning Ed2. One for you if you're about. You are the man for all things transfer related and value your opinion. So I guess my question, or questions for you is regarding Saka. If Mane were to leave do you believe Arsenal's resolve would be tested if a "decent" offer came in from us, or is he simply off limits so to speak? Secondly do we or have we previously held any interest in the player? Lastly, in your opinion do you believe he would make a good replacement, if say Mane did in fact depart this summer?

Alonso1786

{Ed002's Note - If Mane departs then I would expect Jota to take his place and another versatile forward added. It won't be Saka who the club have shown no interest in and Arsenal won't want to sell. I could see Klopp looking to one of the players he has as favourites like Dembele, Traore of Sarr - but I think Liverpool could well look to Sancho as I have said before - but there are huge add on costs that would be a problem.}


1.) 10 May 2021 12:54:39
Thanks for the reply Ed2. That’s enough for me. If you say we have shown no interest at all and Arsenal as I thought wouldn’t be open to selling, then we can safely scratch him off completely. I would say If Klopp is going for the other names mentioned above, I’m hoping he goes for Sancho. He might not have his fans on here but transfer fee aside he has the higher ceiling. I know you mentioned before that Mane won’t command the transfer fee us fans would like what with C.V., plus the big clubs have other targets as their main priority. So, it appears it would take a sell of Mane and some fringe players to complete such a transfer. Either way it’s an interesting summer ahead with a few players needing to be moved on and few brought in. I just hope we don’t hang onto players and loan them out again with no plan or intentions of integrating them into the side.


2.) 10 May 2021 12:56:10
If Mane departs, I don't think we would get a massive amount for him in this current market. At the same time, I don't see us spending a large amount on any potential replacement with us having made significant losses this year.

Could we be looking at loaning players this summer Ed, possibly including options to buy, in order to delay the prospect of buying players until our finances are better?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking to any loans, but Danny Drinkwater will be available.}


3.) 10 May 2021 13:00:18
Ed02 unfortunately I think to get fans on their side fsg might try to accumulate debt and sign someone "Marquee" . I hope I'm wrong.


4.) 10 May 2021 14:27:15
ha Danny Drinkwater, might as well get nigel Reo-coker involved.


5.) 10 May 2021 16:44:15
If Klopp's choices are Sarr, Traore or Dembele to replace Mane, I'd rather keep Mane.


6.) 10 May 2021 17:29:16
Danny Drinkwater Ed002 love it mate😂.


7.) 10 May 2021 18:01:37
Are united still in the ring for sancho eds?

{Ed002's Note - Jadon Sancho (RW) Manchester United messed everybody around last year and he has again been offered elsewhere to those who had previously enquired, but whilst Real Madrid are not interested, Chelsea may be willing to work directly with his club to secure a transferrather than his agent. If Manchester United want him they are going to have to agree a deal before the summer. I would not be surprised to see interest from Liverpool but they have financial issues which could impact any offer.}


 

 

20 Oct 2020 14:21:51
Hi Ed2, you have spoken about this for a while now. I value your insight in such matters over main stream media so wanted to get some information if you don't mind. Apologies if you have answered this elsewhere but has there been significant movement in this European Premier League as the media are now reporting or is there a far way to go for this becoming a reality? Appreciating anything you can share on this.

Alonso1786

{Ed002's Note - This relates to one of the ideas floated as an alternative to try and stop the "elite" European sides breaking away to form a pan-European league. I have explained the proposal before but it surrounds expanding the pre-season International Champions Cup to a much larger event where clubs would be members of the tournament through a debenture type system but need to commit to playing their first team in all games. Those behind it want UEFA (or even FIFA) to formally recognise the tournament (there has been a discussion already) which would be a money spinner but will add many more first team games to the annual schedule. This was one of the major drivers behind the Liverpool owners proposing Project Big Foot - which was obviously nothing to do with helping out the football pyramid but simply a way for FSG to extract more money from the game. I have explained in more detail previously.}


1.) 22 Oct 2020 10:29:19
To be fair, you make it sound like it’s all FSG, when Man Utd’s owners were also heavily involved in the proposal.


 

 

24 Sep 2020 10:45:04
Morning Ed2, you have told us Klopp is looking for a first team defender but with financial constraints due to the C.V. that might prove to be difficult. I know of Klopp's admiration for Diego Carlos but what I wanted to know is if we hold any interest in Ben White who I think is a fantastic prospect. He won't come cheap but in your opinion if we were to make a move for him would it be an attainable avenue to pursue, in terms of whether Brighton have put a price on his head or it's a no go for this season.

Alonso1786

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have looked to bolster the home-grown quota and have looked Ben White (CB) amongst others. Liverpool are one of several sides interested but I don't see him moving this summer.}


1.) 24 Sep 2020 11:00:42
He’s signed a new long term deal has he not? Think we can rule him out for now anyways.


2.) 24 Sep 2020 11:23:32
Thanks for the reply Ed2.

The Southern Red, I didn’t know he put pen to paper a new deal, although it’s not uncommon for that to happen then a player leave shortly afterwards but looks like we can cross this one off for now like you said.


3.) 24 Sep 2020 21:53:47
We have Rhys Williams.


4.) 25 Sep 2020 14:21:30
It's being reported that Leeds bought Llorente from Sociedad for 18M GBP. Is that true? We had been hearing for the better part of 2 years that Llorente was priced out of what LFC wanted to pay, but 18M seems like it would have been a no brainer move had the opportunity come up before we made recent purchases. Did Sociedad panic sell or is there more to the fee that is being reported?

{Ed001's Note - Sociedad have money problems and needed to sell.}


5.) 25 Sep 2020 23:33:00
I also think llorente might not have been too interested in leaving sociedad to join us when other clubs like Leeds could offer him regular starting time. At that age he probably wouldn't want to risk the possibility of seeing Gomez and VVD become consistent partnership and spend a few years of his career not guaranteed to play every week. He'd be aiming to become a starting CB for Spain with pique gone and Sergio Ramos coming to his final years while no other top defenders from Spain are certain to fill those positions. He's 27 and not yet to have a season where he's been an ever present. He needed to seek a move where he can try to bring his game up a gear and maybe reach a level in next season or after to get a big move.

I don't think we had serious intentions to pursue him as I'd imagine the player wasn't expected to be eager to accept the role we could offer.


6.) 26 Sep 2020 14:33:33
Food for thought, but I was under the impression that he was on our short list of CBs who could be automatic starters next to VVD. It just surprised me that he ended up going this window for that price. Don't get me wrong, I am happy with Gomez's game and love him as a player, just needs to string together a healthy year for me to have full confidence in his reliability.


7.) 26 Sep 2020 21:59:00
I understand that we as fans want to see Gomez being reliable as an ever present like van dijk has been. It's such a bonus to have a CB pairing who are together every week but Joe has only just turned 23 and still very young so I'm confident he can improve in this department. What I find impressive is that he and VVD can gel together so quickly when paired up even after periods of time apart.

Imagine a season where they start 35 or 36 league games together how strong they could be. The vidic/ Ferdinand or Terry/ carvalho partnerships were top class when they played nearly every game.

I've no complaints if klopp is ambitious and seeking a defender that is of the quality to expect coming straight into the team but Its hard to get that signing without spending large. I'm currently confident with the boys we have so I'd have no worries at all if we instead signed a cheaper or younger defender who could be managed patiently and look to earn his place without pressure to come straight in. Matip and fabinho also offer us strong options so I'd love to see Gomez being told by klopp he wants him as his trusted first choice and challenge Gomez to focus on achieving a full season of being fit and available. He just needs that full season without any setbacks and playing alongside VVD week in week out his confidence and game would be able to reach another level that we all see he is capable of.


 

 

27 Aug 2020 19:27:06
Players come and go but losing Mane would be an extremely hard pill to swallow due to a few things. Messi, even if for two seasons will make Man City significantly stronger and for me Mane is the forward I would least like to see depart. Who would we replace him with? Now I can name who I would feel will soften the blow but in all fairness are unrealistic due to the money that would be involved so can probably strike them out.

1) Mpappe - Wages, transfer fee and him wanting Real Madrid makes that a no go.
2) Haaland but Dortmund don't need to sell, transfer fee that would involve and the fact we would need to change tactics to accommodate makes that a no go.
3) Sancho, yes has potential but for me we won't be getting the goal return Mane provides and Premier League is a tougher more astute league to that in Germany. Sancho would only work if we also bring in a striker that can make up the goals with a return of 20+ goals in the league because Sancho will most likely provide the assist numbers. These are all ifs and buts in a very very unlikely scenario. There is no one that I can think of like for like who plays in Mane's position, who is attainable that can slot in right away and provide the numbers Mane provides.

Now, some might jump on my back but I think moving to Barcelona might interest Mane. Barcelona and Real Madrid is a big pull for most players but especially for South American and African players. He could be sold on the idea he would be the main man spearheading their revamp and the future not to mention wages, weather, lifestyle etc. All considered makes me worried this might go somewhere, especially when Ed2 has said Barcelona want him and have the money to afford him. If Mane were to leave I would rather take straight cash and more than the quoted €120 and not have their cast offs.

Alonso1786

1.) 27 Aug 2020 19:50:15
Mane has won the prem and champions League with us, he's not from the UK or lived here for a huge amount of time.
So he's achieved a lot here, has no reason to be attached to us, may like the idea of playing in a new league, may want to move to a new city, and may have the opportunity to play for an iconic club regardless of the blip that they are in. It's a shame but it would make perfect sense if Mane wanted to go to Barcelona!


2.) 27 Aug 2020 20:30:25
I Don't see mane leaving. Barcelona cannot afford him anyway, they are even more skint than we are. Also with their past transfer mistakes, I don't see them spending over a hundred million on someone so close to thirty, he's our best player, and in my eyes irreplaceable.

{Ed002's Note - No, Barcelona will be able to afford him.}


3.) 27 Aug 2020 20:47:55
With the Messi money. Really sounds like you believe it has a good chance if happening Ed sadly.

{Ed002's Note - No, I have simply explained what has happened.}


4.) 27 Aug 2020 20:54:03
Barca have so much collateral in unwanted players and wages that they will save.
Please not Dembele though.
Werner and Kai may have softened the blow, should Mane leave, but would they hit the ground running?
Could see them buying someone like Harvey Barnes plus one other in this case, but as Ed says, whoever it is is going to be a step down from Mane.
Mane has to be worth 200m + .


5.) 27 Aug 2020 21:02:12
Might be a case of 1 world class player out, and 3 at the level / potential of Mane and Salah when they joined. What position does the highly rated Lyon player play in?


6.) 27 Aug 2020 21:06:08
I'm going to go ahead and not meltdown with worry over this. Mane will be here next year.


7.) 27 Aug 2020 21:08:10
Harvey Barnes would be another Andy Carroll moment. I’d hope we wouldn’t be so foolish to waste money like that.


8.) 27 Aug 2020 21:56:53
I know nowadays you can't keep an unhappy player but. With the current financial restrictions, I'd rather we signed no other players this season than sold Mane.
We need to keep these 3 together as they are effective as a trio and less so on their own.


9.) 28 Aug 2020 03:21:58
I think Mane has stepped up his game over the past 2 seasons and he's reached a point where many fans feel that he's better than Salah. I'm one of them. I think his overall contribution has better value than what Salah offers. So, if we had to give up one of the front 3, I would sacrifice Salah. But if the fans can see that Mane offers more, other clubs and their scouts would see the same thing also.

It would be a pity if Mane left but he has repeatedly said that he's happy at Liverpool. Players can change their minds anytime and I hope if he does leave, he'll leave in a dignified manner.

Personally, I think he'll stay for another season 'at least'. Leaving now to go to a sinking ship doesn't sound like the best idea. He's 28 now and why would he want to be part of a team that has reached a new low and it could take years to rebuild their confidence and start to win things again. With Messi gone, other star players could also leave.


10.) 28 Aug 2020 02:47:56
Ed002 - Would the purchase of Mane by Barcelona hinge on the sale of Messi? Or would they be able to afford Mane while keeping Messi?

{Ed002's Note - It is perfectly clear in the text.}


11.) 28 Aug 2020 11:23:48
I'll play Devil's Advocate here. If you were Mané, and you were scoring an equal number of goals as your strike partner (Salah) the past two seasons, and yet you were earning only roughly half his salary, why would you stay?

Really hope he stays and LFC sorts out imbalances.


12.) 28 Aug 2020 12:35:09
Mane is very unlikely to leave this window. There is a rebuild coming for sure and I suspect fsg will look to sell high profile players like Mane when there is still high value. I highly doubt it will be this window however. I'm preparing mentally now to lose one or 2 big names next summer.


13.) 28 Aug 2020 12:36:00
Has to be Mbappe if Mane was to go.

29 Aug 2021 15:58:59
Something a little different. If money wasn't an issue but you can only bring in one player between now and the end of the transfer window. Who would it be and why? Mine would be Haaland. Other than the fact he will get you goals and by the bucket load, it would give the defenders someone else to contend with, opening up more space up for Salah to exploit. With that being said there is a strong argument for Mbappe who would probably suit our system better. However, Haaland shades it for me because of his relentlessness to score, much like our very own Salah and similar to Cristiano Ronaldo. This is all in an alternative universe but fun nonetheless.

Alonso1786

{Ed0666's Note - I think Haaland would be most people’s choice mate


1.) 29 Aug 2021 16:18:27
He never looked the same after the Keane tackle. Doubt he would even pass a medical and plus he’s in his fifties 😜.


2.) 29 Aug 2021 16:19:44
Ed666, you are probably right mate but a lot might go for KDB. A player who can open up defences with his near on perfect passing. Can add goals to the team, although not to Salah and Haaland level but that’s not his role. He can also shoot from distance, all of which I think might have unlocked Chelsea last night and games where teams sit back. I take it Haaland is your choice as well?

{Ed0666's Note - we have KDBesque players mate. Salah, TAA, Thiago what no one has apart from Dortmund is that freak of football.


3.) 29 Aug 2021 16:26:54
Mbappe or Haaland.


4.) 29 Aug 2021 16:34:44
I would take kimmich!


5.) 29 Aug 2021 16:40:17
Ffs JK23 😂. Ed666, you are right we do indeed but KDB is special you have to admit. As for Haaland you described him perfectly, he is a freak of nature. His speed for his size does not make sense and that relentless for scoring I believe, with the following disclaimer. Barring any major injuries and continuing on the trajectory he is on and dare I say it, he can go on to do something Ronaldo/ Messi’ish in terms of hitting 30 plus goals a season over a long period. Only difference is they were hitting 40 plus season in season out but that might never be seen again. But if someone is to reach that level or even just below that, it’s certainly Erling Freak Of Nature Haaland.


 

 

12 Aug 2021 23:20:01
Ed2. I'll start by admitting Renato Sanches wouldn't be my first choice but I understand why the club are interested. You have informed us Lille like most clubs in France have been hit hard due to the C.V. and TV deal. Therefore they are willingly to accept payments being spread, which is enticing to the club. Not to mention there is a player in there somewhere under the right guidance and with the caveat that he is willing to learn and work hard to take his game to the next level. Either way if Sanches comes in he will have my full support. Now, with that being said my question or should I say questions for you leads me to a player from another French club in Eduardo Camavinga.

A) Has Liverpool shown any interest?
B) Are Rennes willing to sell this transfer window?
C) Would he commend a similar transfer fee to Sanches?
D) Last but not least, do Rennes find themselves in a similar situation to their French club counterparts in terms of finances and would they be open to similar spread payments as Lille are with Sanches?

Alonso1786

{Ed002's Note - (A) No. (B) At the right price. (C) Considerably more. (D) I don’t know if they would be open to spreading payments but there has been a huge amount of interest from Real Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, PSG and even Manchester United. And Liverpool are not looking to replace Fabinho.}


1.) 13 Aug 2021 12:18:27
Thanks for the reply Ed2. Much appreciated.


2.) 13 Aug 2021 12:21:58
Camavinga do not play the same position as Fabinho, you should watch him play first before making that false statement.

He is a center midfield kind of box to box and if Liverpool want to buy camavinga it will be more to replace wijnaldum instead of Fabinho.


 

 

18 Jul 2021 10:59:55
Ed1. Question for you if you're about. Always appreciate yours and Ed666 opinions on Liverpool matters and of course Ed2 as the oracle on all matters transfer related. I agree with you on either Bissouma or Saul as both are extremely talented. It is the wide forward position I would like to hear from you on. So it's more of a two fold question if a may. 1) From your understanding who are we currently showing interest in? 2) If it was down to you who would you bring in and why? .

Alonso1786

{Ed001's Note - 1. it seems to be still interest in the same bunch as last summer - Traore and Sarr etc. None of them would be in my thinking.
2. I think it would be a mistake to buy anyone unless it is Mbappe, who it clearly is not going to be. Other than that, I would rather start introducing Elliott into the team. If we are going to win things in the long term, we need to give players like that their chance.}


1.) 18 Jul 2021 11:32:05
The thought of Traore sends shivers down my spine. Not sure why we are persisting with our interest in him. Yes he is fast and strong but he has little to no football intelligence to go with that. I hope we do not go down that road, plus I would imagine Wolves would ask for a lot of money. Sarr I don’t know to much on apart from he is young but so is Elliot so I agree we should give him a chance instead. I think the signings of the summer would be to hire you and Ed666 in an advisory role on signings. Your first task would be to scratch Troare off our transfer list for good 😉.

{Ed001's Note - oh god please not Ed666! It would be my worst nightmare to have him in any role that might require him to think.}


2.) 18 Jul 2021 11:51:54
How good is Elliott, Ed?
I keep hearing posters making out he’s something special but, let’s be honest, Fowler and Owen truly were at that age.
Is he up there with them?

{Ed001's Note - yes, he is up there, but that means nothing if he doesn't get experience in the team and keep working hard. But on pure ability, he is around their level. Difference is, they played in the first team at his age, not got dumped out on loan.}


3.) 18 Jul 2021 12:33:14
Ed001 hope your well mate, can I just ask on both Traore and Sarr would we not have to sell one of the front 3 for either of them to arrive? Both from a financial point and also a game time point?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, it would depend on the terms we bought them on. As for game time, hard to say, depends on form and injuries. I would be more worried that either of them might get enough game time as I don't think either are anywhere near good enough.}


4.) 18 Jul 2021 12:47:08
I'm available Ed001🙋‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - in that case stick with Ed666...}


5.) 18 Jul 2021 14:08:16
Actually Ed0666 told me to post that😉.


6.) 18 Jul 2021 16:09:08
Selling any of our front three to accommodate Traore would have to rank as one of our most stupid transfer decisions ever if we did that. Whereas there may be some minor logic in selling Mane and bringing in Sarr to replace him. There’s absolutely no logic at all in buying Traore.


7.) 18 Jul 2021 21:06:25
Spot on, VVVV. Traite is absolute tosh. Klopp may like him and all that but to sign him to replace an absolute legend in Salah, ain’t having it.


8.) 18 Jul 2021 21:54:40
I meant Traore, not Traite. Darn autocorrect.


9.) 18 Jul 2021 22:14:26
VVVV there is no logic in selling Mane for Sarr. Nonsense, he’s still a formidable talent. If any of the front three should leave it’s Bobby.


 

 

02 Jun 2021 12:07:28
Ed1. Question for you if you're about. Out of the players we have signed in "recent times", although I know that's relative. I would love to find out which ones you weren't keen on or rated highly that ended up really surprising you? That might not solely rest on talent alone mind. It could be they were talented but you didn't feel their attitude would take them to that next level to keep it up on a consistent basis or it could be on watching them over an extended period of time you just couldn't see them ever stepping up to the level they did.

Alonso1786

{Ed001's Note - two spring to mind, Salah, no one realised he was quite this good and Robbo. Robbo has made huge strides under Klopp, he was nothing like this good at Hull but he shows what hard work and the right attitude can do to make a player better. We all knew he worked hard, but he has become arguably the best left-back in the game through listening and learning from the coaching he is getting. That was way beyond anyone's expectations I am sure.}


1.) 02 Jun 2021 12:29:55
Crikey, I'd forgotten quite how despondent the site was in summer 2017 when we signed Robbo! Everyone was really excited about Benjamin Mendy and how great he looked (me included) and then we end up with an £8m LB from a relegated team!

On top of that everyone was really excited about another piece of the attacking puzzle and I remember Klopp was keen on Brandt plus whoever else was on the shortlist above a Chelsea reject.

We certainly didn't think we had signed the Messiah and his ginger sidekick! I remember Waro getting the FSG OUT movement going saying we would never be able to compete!


2.) 02 Jun 2021 13:34:19
It's same everywhere!? Hardwork always rewards!


3.) 02 Jun 2021 15:33:01
Robbo is a good shout and the standout for me. Remember the deflation on the site when we signed him. Thankfully he proved us all wrong and in your words is now arguably the best left back the game. Salah was well thought of but no one expected him to be this consistent with his goal scoring so would definitely agree with you there.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Mane? Don’t claim to have followed him much at Saints. Especially his previous clubs before that so not sure if he showed the promise of elevating his game to the heights in which he did.


4.) 02 Jun 2021 19:07:26
Alonso, I remember similar comments to Robbo about Mane - a really dodgy attitude being the main one. Again, most of us questioned the club's ambition for buying a sulky chap from Soton rather than a superstar from the continent!


 

 

26 May 2021 19:21:46
Ed1 or Ed666. Konate looks like he is almost over the line. For the midfield slot Bissouma would do me nicely but he is a massive Arsenal fan and from the outside in appears as though he would jump at the chance if they made their move.

Now with the HG thing being brought up how do you feel about Declan Rice. I'm just throwing the name out there for conversational sake. Well, that's in part true as the reason why I mentioned him is because I randomly came across a YouTube video of him last night on something called F2Freestylers.

Now I already know he is a well thought of player and can also cover in as CB but bleeding eck, the guy is technically "next level" as the kids would say. He honestly took me by surprise and by the comment of the guy that does the show he took him by surprise too with the guy saying "technically you are one of the best we have ever had on the show" and they have had all the top players across Europe on the channel.

Anyways that's enough of that because its what you do in a match that counts. But, how do you rate him, is he for sell at the right price and would we even be in financial position to get him?

Alonso1786

{Ed001's Note - an excellent player but West Ham do not want to sell.}


1.) 27 May 2021 06:34:16
I’d love Rice. I think he would be the perfect Henderson replacement when that day comes.

Cheers Ed1. Think him and Bellingham would be the perfect midfield choice who could play together for over a decade. But, I don’t blame West Ham in putting him in the do not sale category.

Declan Rice was quoted a 71m fee to Chelsea last season, I think and he is not worth that amount, for sure. I would take Bissouma over him cos he has a lot more to his game and is technically better and a better passer.

Think id go for Rice over Bissouma myself! both very good players though.

Ed2, not going on next summer because I think he should stay at Dortmund for another season after this and doubt they would even sell at that point. But is the no chance of signing him based on him having his career mapped out. Or the glaring obvious in that his fee when he does decide to move will put him in reach of only the likes of Munich, Real Madrid, PSG, Man United, Man City and Chelsea?

Would rather give that game time to Elliott and Jones than bring in Coutinho. Ideal world would see Bissouma or Saul come in but between the transfer fee of one and the wages of the other, the chances are looking slim.

Ed666. I would be extremely happy with Raphina and Bissouma. Will throw a little curve ball out there for a pacey wide forward, who definitely has magic in his boots and that’s Dominik Szoboszlai. Only just moved in January so no chance of him moving this summer, nor have we expressed any interest. But I wanted to get your opinion on the lad?

ElsiesArmy. I agree with you on Saka and Rice. Both have great potential. My dream would be Bellingham next season to be bedded in as Henderson’s successor.

Trent woke up feeling unwell. Should be available for next weeks games.

Salah has been consistent throughout his time at Liverpool. Mane however I think is on the decline. Sad to see because I love him and hope I’m proved wrong because he was and hopefully is still a great player. Just something is telling me he won’t rediscover his pre last season form. Also we need to rebuild so maybe summer would be the best time to cash in.

He is just an 18 year old kid mate who felt bad for Struijk and didn’t want him getting any backlash.

Not being funny but I actually don’t like the treatment of Trent when playing for England. Trent is only one year older than Foden, yet he is somehow placed in the youngster category and is the same age as Mount. The whole should he have made the Euro squad wound me up no end and can only imagine what it did for his confidence. Now Walker makes it in the team ahead of him and is never questioned for his constant mistakes, not to mention his lack of crossing ability or positional sense but because he is fast it mask everything and is rarely brought up? I’m a reasonable man when it comes to rating our players and know the sun does not shine from all our behinds, it’s just this particular subject is infuriating. Did he have his best game, no. Was he terrible, the answer would also be no. He was played in midfield for 70 odd minutes where he struggled slightly with his positioning, which is understandable given the fact he doesn’t play there for us. When he switched to right back he had a greater influence on the game. The boy is special and some of the passes he makes is nothing short of breath taking but unfortunately the media have ran with this “Trent has to prove himself to make the team or squad” despite his club current form for club. Unfortunately under Gareth Southgate, who is a topic in itself to be saved for another day will never be appreciated for the talent he is. Anyways, can’t wait for Premier League footy to be back on this weekend.
