I've just seen an article linking us with Ryan Fraser. I know a few other big clubs have been monitoring him (Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U, Everton) .

Are we now in the running for him? Also, wasn't he this season highest chance creator? (And yes, I'm aware that it's quantity and not quality of chances) .

I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about this.

These rumours been going around for a few days. Yes I think after Hazard was top assists. I have never really watched him much and think there are better options out there.

Arsenal favourites to sign him.


2.) 24 May 2019 17:51:20
I don't think we have any serious interest in him, more effective as a winger then a CAM. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arsenal or Spurs make a move, though probably as a second choice or if their budget is stretched thin from picking up a couple players.

Ed002 said he hadn't heard anything about a Liverpool offer but mentioned him as a possible target on the arsenal page and said "Ryan Fraser (LW) has the advantage of being home grown".


3.) 24 May 2019 18:00:27
I’m not sure on the stat, but if he created a chance, I think it’s like created a shot, so I think that denotes quality. Maybe with a more clinical striker he would have got more assists. Again, it’s a stat that looks good, but means very little.

I think mane got three assists this year, and 22 goals. That would suggest he is selfish. but he’s far from it.


4.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
We could do a lot worse imo, looked good this season when I watched him.


5.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
Thanks for your replies, guys.

He certainly doesn't sound like the worst player we could be linked with. And if he's a left sided winger he'd offer a good rotation option considering that Mane played on the right before we signed Salah.

I guess it's just a "wait and see".


6.) 24 May 2019 18:58:11
He had a fantastic season, always remember him coming on against us and turning the game in their favour when they beat us 4-3!

Don't know if he has the quality we need but seems a Klopp type of player with pace to burn and good work ethic.


7.) 24 May 2019 22:23:10
Bit of a Liverpool fan as well by all accounts.


8.) 25 May 2019 01:23:10
I'd be happy to get Fraser he's a pest and would buy into the work rate that Jurgen demands also played with Robertson at international level . He's certainly got something about him on the pitch and doesn't seem to have a massive ego.


9.) 25 May 2019 06:01:34
Can anyone name a player we've been linked with who isn't a 'Liverpool fan'?

{Ed025's Note - gareth bale..


10.) 25 May 2019 09:10:59
Reminds me of the transfer of Charlie Adam. I'd look else where.


11.) 25 May 2019 11:09:23
magico. Because he's Scottish?

He's nothing like Charlie Adam in any way apart from that.


12.) 25 May 2019 13:54:42
About the same level if you ask me. hardly stands out in an average team. so in my opinion he isn't good enough. Each to their own.


13.) 25 May 2019 16:17:30
Descent player.


14.) 25 May 2019 21:08:56
Could be a all Scottish left side with and robbo and Fraser, be excellent edition to our squad at a reasonable price.


15.) 26 May 2019 04:46:12
I wouldn't mind him. He'd be like Robbo, Milner and Hendo when it comes to work rate and not being a flashy player but getting the job done.

If the price is right then why not :)


16.) 26 May 2019 12:52:52
Ryan frazior has been a phenomenon for Bournemouth this season. He deserves a move to a big club. I think he would suit our style well but id expect a higher profile attacking mid if we sign one. Arsenal bound sounds aboit right.


 

 

23 May 2019 09:09:13
Good Morning All.

The Echo are reporting that we're close to signing 16 year old Polish Goalkeeper, Jakub Ojrzynski from Legia Warsaw for £200,000.

I know it's no big name or even anywhere near the first team, but a rumour is a rumour, right?

If true, he must be deemed pretty good considering that our current academy goalies are already at a decent standard.

EpicPotato

1.) 23 May 2019 10:22:02
Although much is expected of him, he's being bought to join the under 18s as competition to Jaros.


2.) 23 May 2019 14:21:58
I uh don't think he will get q good opportunity with us unless Alisson leaves. he is 26 now he will play till 34 maybe at really high level by that time the kid will have left us and become 26 year so i wouldn't read much into it. and ed02 has de ligt deal hit a snag? sorry if im being a bother. i understand he won't end up with us. i hope he ends up at Barcelona or madrid or psg nd not in england.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the deal with de Ligt.}


3.) 23 May 2019 14:54:08
Think we need to De Ligt that question livebird, we all know that he is not coming Klopp isn’t interested.

Re goalkeepers, we don’t know what will happen in 5 years time, Allison may want to move somewhere else, it’s all about planning for the future.


4.) 23 May 2019 15:26:11
I like what you did there southern😂, that pun was DELigtful.


5.) 24 May 2019 09:37:23
You guys have a DeLigtable sense of humour.

The first time I've heard of this linked player.

I've just read that we're interested in bringing in Norwich defender Ben Godfrey for £10m.

Anyone know anything about him or seen him play?

EpicPotato

Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.

EpicPotato

1.) 21 Feb 2019 18:12:34
* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!


2.) 21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.


3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.


4.) 23 Feb 2019 14:21:18
👀 . You're slipping Zed.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 17:39:24
I've just read on BBC's deadline day updates that Ben Woodburn isn't going back out on loan.

I find that a bit strange, as surely his minutes will be limited in our first team squad.

EpicPotato

1.) 31 Jan 2019 19:50:45
He was doing well training and playing under the Liverpool system of play, at whichever level. Maybe that's what he needs more of, in order to develop and grow rather than go elsewhere, learn a new system and just sit on the bench? Guess it's a decision made by the coaching staff and they think something along these lines.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:17:10
He could have a macheda moment for us.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 20:52:58
Klopp said he wouldn't go anywhere unless there were game time guarantees. Rightly so. Woodburn might as well fight for a place in our team, rather than someone else's. Klopp said he got impatient before, so hopefully Ben realises now that loan moves are not beneficial 9 times out of 10. He should stay at Liverpool where he can learn from world class players and coaches.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 21:04:43
I would rather see Woodburn come on for the last 20 minutes of the game than Lallana.


5.) 01 Feb 2019 05:37:24
I think we are anyway short off alternatives to Mane on the left inside-forward role, which is where Woodburn plays from. I am hoping to see him get some minutes off the bench over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed for the lad - if even one of him and Brewster come good over the next 12 months or so, it will be a big win for us as a club.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 09:35:53
Dont see Woodburn or Brewster getting any game time this season. The club look to be taking it slow to get brewster ready for a good preseaon and it seems to be that klopp prefers to have the older players like Sturridge and Lallana in the matchday squads.

If it was up to me if they are training well I would give them a shot off the bench, up to them to take the the chance as at the moment Sturridge and Lallana are not taking there chance from the bench.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:32
I think Brewster will go on to be a good player for us but I can't see woodburn making it, not good enough IMO.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Klopp will again try to sign Marco Ascensio from Real Madrid. Have you heard anything about this Eds?

I struggle to see where he fits in as he's not alike any player we have. Maybe he could be an option if we're looking to mix up our tactics a bit.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool to Real Madrid for Marco Ascensio and whilst there has been interest from Inter and was offered as part of a deal with an English side, the player has said he does not want to leave and that is also the position of Florentino Perez.}


1.) 08 May 2019 11:57:02
I know he is over rated in ed01s eyrs and i can't really comment because i haven't seen THAT much of him. But i have seen him play well and he has a high reputation.

Personally i don't think we should be signing any players from barca, real or juve. The so called "ego" teams. Our strength is in our team. We sign playersvfrom hull and newcastle and get to cl finals.


2.) 08 May 2019 11:57:13
Morning ed. Liverpool getting to another final and especially if we win the cl, does this effect players wanting to jump ship?

I would imagine also it does no harm in attracting players.

{Ed002's Note - The players who want to leave are the youngsters who don't see themselves getting a chance, particularly with the change of purchasing policy, plus Salah - but nobody is interested (for a couple of reasons). So it will not make a difference in any major way.}


3.) 08 May 2019 12:11:21
I fully understand what you have been saying regarding youngers. If we have 2 players in front of them they have to leave for their own career. Like you mentioned if we sign another lb then I agree Lewis should push to leave.

No point buying a cf as Brewster will not no game time.

Thanks as always.


4.) 08 May 2019 12:12:51
Thank you very much for the reply Ed002. It did seem a strange one for me.


5.) 08 May 2019 12:15:08
But also Ed002 with the club doing well in the league and another CL final be more attractive to players that wouldn't normally want to join Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, most definately but space needs to be made in the squad for new players and then any "marquee" players will require guarantees of game time, or the high-profile players will need to make way.}


6.) 08 May 2019 12:33:01
Let the good times roll.


7.) 08 May 2019 12:44:01
Hi Ed002, interesting comments. Do you think we continue to make mistakes in our youth development policy? And, if you'll indulge us, what positives (if any) have you observed about Liverpool's development as a team and brand over the last three years?

NB I realise you're incredibly busy. and with the end of season coming up it'll only get worse for you so feel free to ignore ;)

{Ed002's Note - The problems with the younger players is no peculiar to Liverpool but is made worse by the policy change. The brand is doing OK but the club is still in partnership with a number of businesses which do not have an acceptable profile to many.}


 

 

08 May 2019 11:36:43
Any news on how Robbo is?

EpicPotato

1.) 08 May 2019 11:52:00
Pretty certain he'll play both of our last 2 games.

He was hewn out of Scottish granite mixed with Irn Bru and a couple of ginger nuts, so I'm sure he'll be absolutely fine!


2.) 08 May 2019 11:52:46
Expected to have a scan I think.


3.) 08 May 2019 12:01:23
You left out girders Zeddicus.


4.) 08 May 2019 11:59:36
Robbo and Mane my 2 favourites. Robbo seems a top guy and he gives his absolute max in every game. Pundits are calling him the best left back in the league and it is hard to disagree. If anyone could be first it would be Robbo.


5.) 08 May 2019 12:28:18
I like Robbo but what he did to Messi yesterday was stupid, in a game that VAR is active, the referee if he was in a different mood, could've easily referred it to VAR and they could've deemed it aggressive and he would've been sent off and we would've been down to 10 men after just 4 minutes . It would've been a different result.


6.) 08 May 2019 12:46:00
When I read Zed said last TWO games, I think I jizzed.


7.) 08 May 2019 12:56:59
Roy, is ruffling a guy’s hair really a red card offence? And I thought it was for the VAR official to refer such incidents to the referee, not the other way round. I kind of like that referee - if I’m not mistaken we had him for the Dortmund game in 2016 - and he doesn’t strike me as the type to overreact.


8.) 08 May 2019 13:18:12
I have that effect on people, LFC8 - can't say I'm entirely delighted about it and it has led to awkward situations, but I do have that effect on people!


9.) 08 May 2019 14:15:12
Roy, is ruffling a guy’s hair really a red card offence?
=====================================================
I don't think so, no . But we have seen red cards given for a lot less, my point there was no need taking risks, particularly in the first 5 minutes.
I agree with you on the referee, he is good, he managed the game really well . remember him managing the City spurs game well with all its VAR drama etc.


10.) 08 May 2019 14:25:14
How Robbo is, let me count the ways. What's the very best adjective in the English language? I don't think it'd do him justice.


11.) 08 May 2019 14:49:26
Roy, your point makes no sense. If what you say about Robbo's incident with Messi was true, then Vidal, Cou and Suarez (who was whinding up Fab ALL game long) should have been sent off for several off the ball challenges on Fab especially.

VAR is not used just for anything you think it should be used for. There are things it can review and things it CANNOT review. For example, the incidents I mentioned are things the ref or linesmen should be able to see. If they did NOT see it then sorry for your luck, it did NOT happen.

Only 10 minutes in, but I'd say this is game on. Leicester look properly up for it.

I'm getting less hopeful the more I watch. They've not threatend much since early on.


2.) 06 May 2019 20:40:56
recently teams have done well against city first half then go on to roll over next half so just give it till second half and normal service shall resume unfortunately.


3.) 06 May 2019 20:44:37
I think Leicester are handling them pretty well. City are bound to go for it, they need to but all it'll take is that crucial counter attack from Leicester, I still believe.


4.) 06 May 2019 20:50:15
Last thing Leicester needed was half time
City normally come out flying - I’d go for 1-0 up inside 55mins.


5.) 06 May 2019 20:52:50
I'm not watching. I'm going to watch Line Of Duty in a bit. I need some light entertainment and I said my prayers on Sunday.

10.) 06 May 2019 21:32:20
Wow, gut punch for us, but wow. What a hit that was. Hats off that was a stunner, and if that ultimately wins them the league then fair play. That was a goal and a half.


11.) 06 May 2019 21:32:27
It's not over til it's over.


12.) 06 May 2019 21:34:59
The man who should have been sent off against us for a reckless challenge on Salah scores the goal which wins them the league,

I haven't seen this posted and only just realised by looking at the table.

Matip deserves a new contract if his current one is nearing the end, but definitely not a raise. He's already on high wages due to him coming on a bosman, so there'll be no need to be giving him a raise.

I think the problem (albeit a good problem) is that we're now at a standard 1 point behind an excellent Man City team and European Champions.

If we were still finishing 7th, like when Klopp took over, had an injury to our right sided attacker/ winger, and Shaqiri's signing just didn't work out, the likes of Camacho may have been given a chance.

The stakes are higher now that the level of quality in the squad is much higher and our attackers have been pretty much injury free.

It's different trying to break into the first team for an upper mid-table side than it is to break into a serial European finalists and title challengers side.

Out of "respect" for Liverpool? More like he knows how disliked he is by Liverpool fans for the way in which he left, and that he's afraid of the reception that he'd get if he ended up signing for United?

Also, surely he can see the mess that they're in and wouldn't want to be part of it anyway. It could end up being terribly embarrassing for him if he signed for them.

dbav. He could also cover Firmino in the false 9 role. A role which none of the other midfielders we've been linked with seem to have the ability to do.

So he'd be joining as a midfielder with the ability to cover CF.

United will need to spend £200m+ just to stand still. Will they come higher than 6th if they sign Maguire, Rice and Maddison? I don't particularly think so.

I think with those three signings, they'll pretty much finish where they just have done.

I know it sounds crass, but signing Maguire and Maddison would be good business competitively as it may halt Leicester's charge to become a top 6 team.

Both Wolves and Leicester are proving that they're going to try to break into the big teams club. Leicester should really try to hold onto those two players or absolutely rinse any potential buyer so that they can replace them with better.

If one of those two break the top 6, who is going to lose out? Arsenal? Spurs? Chelsea? Maybe one of those but unless Man Utd have a very good transfer window, it is they who are in most danger of dropping to 7th or below.

I actually think that Fekir would be a good addition as we've no-one able to properly cover for Firmino as the false 9, a position which Fekir has played. Obviously, he wouldn't be brought in purely for that, but it's a nice option to have.

As much as I like Gini, it showed that we really need another option when he tried to play the Firmino role.

Moise Kean is going to really make a name for himself. He's already showing glimpses at club level but he's going to be head and shoulders above everyone.

An outsider for best player could be Domagoj Bradaric of Croatia. He's a left back and has only just emerged this season, but he's one hell of a player.
