Ed's any chance we'd look at Bellingham and if not which clubs would be looking at him?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - I don't think that there is any chance that Bellingham will be signing for Liverpool.}


1.) 05 Sep 2021 19:35:07
The poor man's Curtis Jones.


2.) 05 Sep 2021 20:01:40
That is sad news I thought we would be in with a chance to sign him. Bellingham will be the best of the best. Klopp is a magician for keeping pace with our rivals.


3.) 05 Sep 2021 20:59:00
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?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have neither the interest nor the money.}


4.) 06 Sep 2021 09:58:40
Just add him to the long list of players who will never play for us.


5.) 06 Sep 2021 18:25:53
If he has a transfer fee and demands a salary we are out of the rubbing.

Lfc will solely be run by volunteers from now on.


6.) 06 Sep 2021 21:23:31
Elaborate more on this rubbing you mention.


7.) 06 Sep 2021 23:31:29
Well spotted flash, I'm sure you can use your imagination on that one though mate lol.


8.) 09 Sep 2021 16:40:18
Honestly have no idea what some of you guys see when you look at our squad, but the first 11 plus 3 or 4 others are superstars.

Hey Ed's anything in the McGinn rumours? Seems an odd choice for Liverpool.

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - John McGinn (CM) Whilst he would be cheaper than other options, I am not aware of any approach to Aston Villa although one of the Aston Villa coaches has shared he has been watched by Liverpool.}


1.) 23 Jun 2021 10:54:42
Not sure he’d be cheaper? They’re asking £50m+ by all accounts which is not so much steep as vertical.


2.) 23 Jun 2021 11:23:32
I’m presuming the £50mill figure is wrong as I’d of thought bissouma would be cheaper than that. I quite like McGinn think he’d fit in pretty well, he’s got an engine and can play still.


3.) 23 Jun 2021 11:58:16
That’s the price widely reported that Villa want and they’re not short of a few quid so don’t need to sell. We should hard pass at anything over £25m. I’d rather Bissouma or Neuhaus.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Aston Villa quoting a price to Liverpool for the player.}


4.) 23 Jun 2021 12:01:49
John Mcginn would be an excellent player. Stand out player for Villa and Scotland, came from my Scottish team Hibernian where he again was the standout player, seriously underrated.


5.) 23 Jun 2021 12:04:43
If Mcginn is 50 mill then the worlds gone mad! Phillips must be a 30mill player then.


6.) 23 Jun 2021 12:19:16
Have people actually watched mcginn he’s a great little player . If he was called mcginnho and from fluminese people on here would be all over him . Not saying he’s the answer to our problems but he would make a great addition and give us some real energy and tenacity in the midfield . A lot worse options out their than him.


7.) 23 Jun 2021 12:28:47
McGinn to Liverpool for £50 Million?
Shirley Knott!


8.) 23 Jun 2021 14:02:17
We can’t settle for him. City are chasing Kane and we want McGimp? Come off it, not a chance.


9.) 23 Jun 2021 14:02:37
Was reported in the Athletic and various other sources that they want £50m (or very close to), he’s a decent premier league player but never worth that much. For that kind of price we can do far better.


10.) 23 Jun 2021 14:45:17
Yeah we definitely don't want a Scot no one knows a lot about from an unfashionable team. That would be disastrous, what is Klopp even thinking about. Next will be someone saying he could be developed into one of the worlds best players in his position! How could that happen when nobody knows much about him?


11.) 23 Jun 2021 14:52:08
Kane you do realise we paid 8 for Robertson! That's a calculated risk. At 50 million we better be buying the finished product.


12.) 23 Jun 2021 15:02:34
McGinn: Waste of money!
My previous comments:
Ian St John? Waste of money!
Ray Kennedy? Waste of money!
An unknown keeper from Vancouver Whitecaps? Waste of time!
Gary McAllister? Too old and a waste of money!
James Milner? Waste of a free transfer!

I have a perfect track record. :-D.


13.) 23 Jun 2021 15:24:27
He is a very good player but that is a hefty fee. I can only imagine what they must be valuing grealish at if its 50 mil for McGinn.

Still we can talk all day about players in but we need to get some out the door first.


14.) 23 Jun 2021 16:07:18
Meammachinered, think Kane's post may have gone over your head a little.


15.) 23 Jun 2021 17:49:10
If he was Robertson money or even £20m, I’d say we should be all over that, but £50m? Really? There’s multiple better options out there for that kind of outlay.


16.) 23 Jun 2021 17:50:52
Paper talk. According to the journalists "the club aren't focused on signing a midfielder or attacker" yet we are being linked with loads from the same journalists. They clearly haven't a clue what's going on inside the club.


17.) 23 Jun 2021 18:07:49
That’s very true also Oh Mane.

Having said all this, we should offer them a straight swap with Keita. Job done.


18.) 23 Jun 2021 20:10:29
You would have to give them Keita and 51 mil VVVV.


19.) 23 Jun 2021 20:55:54
I commented on another post the other day saying he's not worth £30M to us for a squad player but I thought Villa would want a little more than £30M as he is worth more to them.

£50M is silly money for him though.


20.) 24 Jun 2021 08:26:02
MacGinn ain’t no 50m pound player even I think he is very good. For 50m we can get a lot better than him on the PL like Bissouma or even Neuhaus and others. Sorry, hard pass on him for 50m.


 

 

24 May 2021 17:27:19
Rumours today Konate done, any truth Ed's?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - One of the Ed's told you it was a "done deal" a few weeks ago so I am not going to comment.}


 

 

20 May 2021 21:53:46
Ed's heard rumours of a possible Dortmund bid for Mane? Any truth in this?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - None.}


1.) 21 May 2021 20:22:10
there is less than zero chance that Mane will go to Dortmund.


 

 

08 Oct 2020 00:02:05
Ed's I read on Twitter (I know) that Gio Reyna can sign a pre contract agreement with other clubs come January, just wondering is this true and also would we be interested?

Also there are a few mentions of a upamechano release clause next summer, I assume we'd take a look since klopp wanted to strengthen there?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over either. I expect Reyna will sign a contract with Dortmund in November or December.}


1.) 08 Oct 2020 15:17:21
We just can't get our hands on that US star that John Henry craves!

might have to go back in for clint dempsey.

{Ed025's Note - or clint eastwood.. :)


2.) 09 Oct 2020 09:39:41
Freddie Adu must be on our list of targets next season.


3.) 12 Oct 2020 08:51:31
Out of curiosity have we had many USA players on our books. I can only think of brad friedel who's Liverpool spell was fairly forgettable anyway. Football in the US is producing more talent than ever now as we see German clubs snapping up a number of them who are making breakthroughs lately that we rarely saw from previous American players who never seemed to step up to the standard in Europe. I don't think we'd be looking for a player just for his nationality as a marketing tool. I think our recruitment policy is far too defined to go down that route.

{Ed002's Note - Zak Whitbread is another. There has also been at least one otheer who never got a WP.}

Ed's any new on possible deals in works? In or out?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - I am not giving blow-by-blow updates. I can tell you where I know of interest. Anything else, try Googling Liverpool Red Alert.


1.) 01 Jul 2021 17:23:15
Brilliant.


 

 

20 Apr 2021 20:03:11
Ed's would you expect FSG to sell now this league has fallen apart?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - It is difficult to sell a club - particularly one worth so much that now has part ownership as well.}


1.) 20 Apr 2021 22:54:24
In fairness Ed002, I think our value has plummeted somewhat, £5 would be optimistic it’s become that toxic.


 

 

08 Apr 2021 14:49:28
Ed's how do you see the summer going for Liverpool. Is it actually likely we'll see Mane, Firmino or Salah actually leave?

It seems Jota has broken into that front 3 and with Elliot returning there could be a changing of the guard?

Also do we have interest in Sancho / Raphina from Leeds?

Love the work you guys do here keep up the good work!

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - Have you considered reading the posts or serching?}


1.) 08 Apr 2021 20:29:55
It seems we have a few quid to spend. I hope we steer well clear of Sancho though. We can't afford the massive signings but plenty top players available for decent money.

I think we need 2 cb, s one that can play lb if possible.
1 midfielder
1 forwaord

that would be great.


2.) 08 Apr 2021 20:49:39
Plenty of money?


3.) 09 Apr 2021 03:24:39
Well, Kabak and Konate (if rumours hold) will cost around 60 million plus. And a midfielder and a forward will cost another 60 to 70 million in the least. If Edwards is able to get Grujic, Karius, Wilson, Ojo, and Awoniyi off the books (not counting Origi, Matip, Shaqiri and Keita), that's approx. 30 to 40 million incoming in the least. It can swell to a higher number if two or more of the 4 from the first team are moved on. So that becomes a net spend of about minimum 40 Million up to 80 Million (in simplistic terms without all the additional fees) . Now it becomes a question of whether FSG is willing to stump up the remaining funds.

Money should come in from the Redbird investment but that has nothing to do with LFC or the Red Sox or whatever. It's going to be invested in enlarging the FSG portfolio of sport teams (if you go by press releases) .

{Ed0666's Note - I have a sneaky feeling the money is coming from the sale of Mane. The majority of players we are looking to offload people won’t pay decent money for.


4.) 09 Apr 2021 07:35:44
Mane’s form has dropped off a cliff. The club should know by now the reasons. I can’t see any club paying £100m atm, maybe £7 if we lucky. If his drop off is temporary and he is carrying an injury or C.V. related we have to keep him. If we had the Mane of last year we wouldn’t be in this mess.


5.) 09 Apr 2021 07:41:58
I’m not so sure about Kabak, maybe back up? He’s looked ok against Premiership sides but against the quality of Real, he looked very exposed.


6.) 09 Apr 2021 08:19:35
I think everyone is talking abot Kabak as a backup anyway. One for the future still; but you have to start today if you want the end result in 2-3 years (especially at that price of purchase) . Buy someone ready made for the present and be ready to shell out 2-3 times Kabak's price.


7.) 09 Apr 2021 05:13:49
Oh but we have a huge list ed kostas, ox, keita, grujic, shaq, origi, minamino, larouci, wilson, matip, woodburn, ojo, awoniyi. Give or take 5 mill for each that's a decent pot of cash. I could argue some of those will fetch decent sum even in todays market.
If we sell mane then surely we are looking to get a big name in. I have a sneaky feeling we will make a move for Harry kane.

{Ed0666's Note - why would you buy keita for 50 odd million and sell him for 5? It would be better to keep him and hope he starts playing better and sell him at a higher price. It’s gonna be a crazy market still this summer and I think Edwards will need to be at his glorious wizard best for it to be a good one for us. I do agree with you Akira there is a lot of players needing to be moved on I just hope we can manage to shift all the ones on you’re list and a few others.
Have a lovely weekend


8.) 09 Apr 2021 05:27:32
You could be right, Ed0666, even though I hope you are wrong. Players do have an off year once in awhile, and I'm hoping that he's given another year to sort himself out. Mane has still done a hell of a lot more for this team and its achievements than certain others who've been passengers all along (hint; name starts with K) .

{Ed0666's Note - I love Mane, I think he’s a Liverpool legend already and he’s not even left us yet, but his loss of form is peculiar. Maybe it’s the legacy of Covid? Maybe it’s a loss of appetite due to the fact he wants to be elsewhere? Maybe he’s waning a little? Whatever it is I would take the money now and invest in a replacement. He’s 29 getting on 30 and his value is decreasing. It may sound harsh but this team needs a rebuild it’s evident and moving on greats is never a nice thing to do but that’s what made paisley and Ferguson stand out they never put player before club. No time for sentiment we have a league title to reclaim.


 

 

02 Apr 2021 19:27:41
Eds any idea how these meetings with with the English clubs regarding haaland went today? Should I get a new Liverpool jersey with his name on the back this weekend?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, this is the Liverpool page.}


 

 

08 Mar 2021 11:41:55
Hi Ed's, just wondering what's the story with Liverpool going forward. No champs league will no doubt put a big dent in our plans so I'm wondering who from that front 3 will be going.

Also rumoured red bull/ Chinese investors, any chance or this actually benefiting the team or just the fsg group as a whole.

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - Players will not leave because there is no CL football.

I am not aware of Chinese investors but have explained the situation with Redball - you can search for that.}


1.) 08 Mar 2021 12:51:36
I guess another way to put it Ed, given our high wage bill and the dramatic loss of income through not being in the champions league, is it likely the club will look to move players on who are on high contracts?

{Ed002's Note - No, LIverpool will look to move on as many of the on loan players who are not wanted as possible. Liverpool will need to deal with interest in the senior players on a case-by-case basis.}


2.) 08 Mar 2021 13:08:27
Would the best strategy on those unwanted on loan players be to accept lower offers to make deals happen?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool tend to overvalue players which is why several of them are still on the books.}


3.) 08 Mar 2021 14:35:00
Can’t argue there Ed.


4.) 08 Mar 2021 14:04:16
Ed02, and that is my prob. We priced out Markovic for example due to the over-evaluation we put on our fringe to unwanted players and finally let him go for next to nothing. Not sure that is going to happen this season cos we need the cash and other clubs will NOT be paying anywhere near whatever our over-evaluation will be, IMO.

I don’t know why we’d cash out he’s the best performer for years. Finding a replacement even close to his level would be very difficult.

Ed you mentioned Traore there as a player of interest, I would imagine he would cost a ridiculous amount of money would he not?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Wolves have FFP commitments that they must meet and would look for a very significant fee for Traore.}

Yea it seems common knowledge. By doing this is klopp trying to force Liverpool’s hand into making a bid or unsettle the player. Or both?

What happened with klopp? He talking to the player without permission?

Charlesdance

{Ed002's Note - You must know that. Liverpool had made no approach to his club.}
