Hi Ed’s

Do you you expect us to move for a striker as well as a replacement for Pipco if we move Sturridge and/ Ings?
I’m more than happy with Sokanke as he looks like he will grow to be a great player, and I think once he hits the net a couple of times he could get on a run, could be wishful thinking but perhaps our Harry Kane 😀

Thanks

Andy O.

{Ed001's Note - if both go, yes.}

If Sturridge goes than how about Walcott, he is experienced, scores and has pace but has a fair few injuries.

{Ed001's Note - is this a serious suggestion?}


2.) 03 Jan 2018 11:15:05
Please stop saying pipco.


3.) 03 Jan 2018 11:17:26
If Walcott's not available then why don't we go for Shane Long?
He scored last night.


4.) 03 Jan 2018 11:57:25
If Sturridge and Ings go, maybe we should give Rhian Brewster a shot at being 3rd choice striker? Maybe that could convince him his future is here and not at Juventus or Dortmund? If we sign a senior player to be 3rd pick instead of using the academy, then i think we will just justify Brewster's decision to leave. How often does a third choice striker play? Sturridge and Ings must have less than 700 minutes combined this season! Is Brewster not ready for a few sub appearances each month?


5.) 03 Jan 2018 12:02:20
About three years ago then maybe I’d agree BigD but he’s flattered to deceive ever since.


6.) 03 Jan 2018 12:08:40
Pipco.


7.) 03 Jan 2018 12:20:22
Are we being serious in suggesting Walcott?


8.) 03 Jan 2018 12:49:33
Solanke's not ready to be second choice, if Studge goes I'd want someone else to come in.


9.) 03 Jan 2018 12:12:40
If both go, are we still interested in Timo Werner, Ed?

{Ed001's Note - the interest is still there but I doubt he will be sold before the summer.}

Hi Ed's - thanks for keeping us all up to date with everything LFC, I can appreciate that it must take a lot of time and patience.

A quick question, do you think that Markovic will be given a chance in pre-season to prove himself, I think there's a player in there myself, but I'm no expert 😊.

Andy O

{Ed002's Note - Markovic is one of the players who has no other commitments this summer so he will have the opportunity. But it will be down to the manager who will have to either make a commitment to play him regularly or let him go. Right now I suspect moving on is the most likely outcome.}


1.) 22 May 2016 13:35:54
Shame, I've always liked the lad and hoped he would've made it with us. Guess it's probably best for his career and also the club if he moved on now though.


2.) 23 May 2016 09:37:36
I was operating under the assumption that Markovic would be given a season to prove himself as our RW with a new LW brought in and two youngsters as back-up wingers, Ojo and Ibe for example.

Ed02, If Markovic is moved on this summer as you suspect, do you think he will be replaced by another RW?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Markovic will want guarantees - Liverpool has wasted enough of his career already and I think it is likely he will move on.}

Hi Eds, just wondering in your opinion do you think we may have a look at Menez as his contract appears to be running close to 6 months.

{Ed002's Note - No. If he leaves it will be to Italy I would think.}

Apparently a true tweet 😂

Even fast food chain KFC were impressed by Edwards' negotiating skills, their UK and Ireland account tweeting on Monday evening: "Michael Edwards could walk into a KFC for a Snackbox but end up walking out with the secret recipe, two of our fryers and the shirt off my back.

“.

No, it’s true.

100% true lad's.


3.) 01 Feb 2021 22:00:48
They should also have added that he had his way with the manager's wife before leaving.

Hi Ed’s,

Thanks for the updates and the honest feedback you provide.

Just a quick question, I think Curtis Jones looks a very promising player and was trying to think what previous players in Liverpool’s history he is similar too.

Based on your knowledge is there a player he reminds you of at this age?

Thx

Andy o.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I can't think of any. Not off the top of my head. I have never really given it any thought. I try and avoid comparisons as it does not help young players to be compared to previous ones.}


1.) 24 Aug 2020 12:56:24
I love his arrogance ED001 but in the right way, he is not fazed at all by playing in the first team, as long as he is prepared to continue to work hard and take advice from the senior players around him, and of course klopp and the coaches i see no reason at all why he should not have a good career as a liverpool player.

{Ed001's Note - I like him a lot, he was a quiet boy but is coming out of his shell now as he grows in confidence. I have really high hopes for his future.}


2.) 24 Aug 2020 13:42:06
Looking forward to seeing Jones get more game time next season. He still has a battle on his hands though to get that game time. At the moment it looks like he is replacing Lallana in the squad and he didn’t exactly feature much last season. I think Jones will get more opportunities next season but I think he will need to be patient still.


3.) 24 Aug 2020 14:12:48
He indeed will still need to be patient because he won't get as many games as he wants so am I been wrong here in saying, I think him going to another premier league club on loan would be best for him? Somewhere who would guarantee him regular game time, that's what he needs and that's something he isn't going to get here just yet. See how he does, if he does well then next season we gradually push him in.


4.) 24 Aug 2020 14:54:19
Depends on the circumstances, Salah mate. Normally, I would agree with you, but with us not having any money, and the season being compressed with games coming thick and fast, I think he's got the opportunity to get a decent level of playing time, learn the liverpool way, and then perhaps get a full season loan next year. He's only 19 (I think), so even at 20 next year he's still young, will have decent experience, and by the time he returns at 21, he'd be a top player I reckon.


5.) 24 Aug 2020 15:41:36
I know it's big praise but he reminds me of Steve McManaman.


6.) 24 Aug 2020 17:59:19
I think there's a bit of Adam lallana about him. I know that's probably a lazy comparison, but he plays on the left of the front 3 or l in cm. He can tackle quite well for a slight lad and gets goals.

And I don't think so salah mate. I think he's good enough to get games for Liverpool this season. He's just beyond the point where a loan would be best for him. I think fighting for a place is best for him as I think he'll win that fight quite a lit.


7.) 24 Aug 2020 19:22:06
Arrogance is fine if you can back it up, but Jones thinks he is the bees knees, he ignores and doesn't even speak to the younger guys in the U17s. from an LFC youngster who I know personally.


8.) 25 Aug 2020 02:42:14
K heard he was a quiet lad at school. Not arrogant at all by all mean.

Hi Ed’s

Really interested in the response that Gomez is close to being back to last seasons form.
Another question do you think that Keita is getting back towards the player at Red Bull now or at least showing signs he’s trying too.
I only ask as big things were expected and I was really excited when we signed him.
I have read comments about our change in style and his difficulties in adjusting to our country.

Thx

Andy O.

Andy O

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly showing signs of the player he was, but not at that level just yet. There he was immense, so he has a way to go. He is looking good though and hopefully he will keep improving. Some players do find it difficult to adjust and Keita is one of those, certainly seems to be adjusting nicely now!}


1.) 31 Dec 2019 09:42:17
His feet are so good, he seems to have this way of getting judged by a defender, looking like he’s going to fall over but use that to beat the man, it’s strange, but effective!
Still think he doesn’t look 100% fit in terms of pace and sharpness so definitely has more to give, but he seems to be finding the net now also which must help his confidence. Hopefully a big 2020 for him.


 

 

07 Jun 2019 13:57:51
Hi Ed’s

Just out of interest, when clubs have identified a position and have a list of players for it do they negotiate for more than one player at the same time? Or do they just go after the one at the top of the list first and move on to the next if it collapses?
I know it may depend on the club, but I’m just wondering if sometimes they agree for 2 players as an example and then choose one and inform the other we no longer want you.

Andy O

{Ed002's Note - They will always have a first choice that they concentrate on.}


1.) 07 Jun 2019 16:28:20
Thanks Ed002, appreciate the reply.
Have a great weekend 👍🏻.


 

 

11 May 2019 11:03:02
Hi Ed’s,

Just a general transfer question, what bargains or good for value players are available in your opinion.
I know lots of people will say Rabiot etc. as they’re seen as free transfers (huge wages though as you say)
I know it’s a very open question and people will interpret value in many different ways, but with some of the crazy money being touted for players there must still be some value out there

Thx

Andy O.

Andy O

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure that is possible to answer easily Andy. There are the youngsters like Eddy Salcedo, Modibo Sagnan, Candido, Kylian Hazard, Vitao and Emerson of which a lot is expected and already have cheap moves agreed. Then there are those whose contracts are ending like Hatem Ben Arfa, Yacine Brahimi, Andrea Bertolacci, Mario Balotelli and Hector Herrera who will be seen as bargains by some.}


1.) 11 May 2019 11:54:23
James Milnerinho on a free transfer.


2.) 11 May 2019 12:01:40
What happened to our interest in simon? Was that his name? The small african winger. A fee of 10mil was mentioned.

There is still value to be found out there. Robbo was an 8mil signing. You wouldn't sell him for less than 30mil now. Maybe even 40/ 50mil when you consider mendy was a 50mil signing.

Look at Klavan, at first he looked a bit of a dud but i think it just took him some time to settle and get used to the pl. I was sad to see him go but as a lcb he wasnt going to get many games. He was pretty decent by the time he left, easily on a level with lovren or matip.


3.) 11 May 2019 12:24:20
I think Van Aanholt could be a useful addition and think we could get hI'm quite cheaply.


4.) 11 May 2019 12:29:48
Maybe take another Chelsea flop in Cuadrado or a man u flop in Di maria both very talented players.
I do believe that Klopp will know who he wants and if he can't get them he will wait until he can.


5.) 11 May 2019 13:36:03
Our defence this season was mainly made up of Gomez, Matip, TAA and Robertson in addition to Alisson and VVD. Terrific value.

Our midfield was mainly Hendo, Gini, Milner and only Fab with a high transfer fee. Terrific value again. Though Keita did not have as good a season as expected. And Ox was a write off this season. I hope we don't get a big money central midfielder this year because we really don't have space for one.

And our frontline of Bobby, Mane, Salah, Shaqiri and Origi are incredible value.

The club seems to have a clear strategy and an incisive approach. Our business in the market has been better than all top-6 clubs over the last 2 years.

More of the same please!

I hope we don't go down the route bargain signings like Spurs. They have done well to find great talents like Dele Alli and Son to complement their young and decent squad, and a very good coach - together they over achieve year after year. But this is not sustainable. They may go back to obscurity next year and nobody will bat an eyelid. I much prefer that we have a great team which is on the cusp of doing great things that they deserve.


6.) 11 May 2019 16:04:07
How on earth could Mario Ballotelli be considered a bargain? Maybe if he plays for free?


7.) 11 May 2019 16:36:15
Mario is huge baggage but he has also scored 8 in 13 appearances for marseille. so from that perspective there will definitely be clubs willing to take that gamble.


8.) 11 May 2019 17:22:15
Candido sounds like a fun-guy.


9.) 11 May 2019 18:24:38
I'd love Balotelli to come back to England, but obviously not to us. Surely one club in the Prem wants to bring the circus to town.


10.) 11 May 2019 19:43:49
Candido is the new Thrushy!


11.) 11 May 2019 22:01:05
A few years ago most people on here were complaining about the signings we made, Robertson he only plays for hull, Mane he's lazy, Salah he's no good flopped at Chelsea same goes for shaquiri. We should leave it to the scouts and manager they seem to know best, he seem to unearth a few gems wherever he goes, as one of the lads "in Klopp we trust". Hope for a huge slice of luck tomorrow f i ngwrs crossed.


12.) 14 May 2019 05:06:10
What kind of fee would Ryan sessegnon demand. Back in the championship and his status this season going slightly quieter surely Fulham won't be able to hold out for the huge money being touted 12 months ago.

Still a teenager with huge potential in my opinion, I think now would be a great time to try and buy him.

What is Oliver Kahn up to these days Ed’s- would he be available as a coach? I know he did some form of coaching or something in China, or is he just a pundit these days. He was a hell of a keeper though

Thx
