Just reading Liverpool are interested in Morten Frendrup. Ed002 what knows you of this?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Morten Frendrup (CM/DM) Versatile midfield player that Juventus are keen to sign. Noted by Spurs when scouting Radu Dragusin. Would be an alternate to Thuram or Manu Kone for Liverpool and they did have a well respected exPL player and high-end scout at the game against Inter at the end of DEcember - so perhaps something have come of that. Genoa have no interest in selling, certainly not mid season.}

1.) 03 Jan 2024 12:25:46
Terrific player.

2.) 03 Jan 2024 12:51:28
I won’t pretend to be following the Italian league, but I can say I’ve watched this young lad back when he was with Brøndby, since it’s the team I follow and support in my home country. Was a very nice little player, but to me always seemed a off pace at times. He was ofc very young, but I have been very surprised by the praises he has received for his time at Genoa. If he is already in a position to make the stop to the top level then I’ll be even more surprised. Would love another Dane at Liverpool, but how he fits in I really can’t see.



16 Nov 2023 12:14:08
Ed002 hope you're well. Any Liverpool, interest in Antonio Nusa or just a random name being bandied about? Thank you.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Antonio Nusa (LW/RW/AM) With Noa Lang departing and Skoras arriving the player has asked for confirmation from Della that he will be given playing time in exchange for staying and rejecting the interest of Chelsea, Manchester United and Barcelona where he would not be given first team opportunities in the short term. Chelsea and Manchester United remain keen whilst Real Madrid are now also showing some interest. Chelsea are looking at preferred options as well. Juventus, Spurs and Arsenal have sent scouts. One to watch for the future.}



17 Aug 2023 12:59:07
Greetings Ed002. Is there any interest in Jacob Ramsey and would Villa ever contemplate a sale? Not wanting to throw a random name at you but thinking of HG midfielders, he would probably command a big fee? I searched but found no mention for a long time. Thanks and appreciation as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Not from Liverpool.}



04 Jul 2023 08:44:42
Hi Eds hope you're all well. My question is about youth signings. I recall every summer Liverpool making a few additions to the U21 squad. I know it's early in the window but any potential names being mentioned out there?
Thanks very much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Not much.
Adama Bojang (W/AM/S) Gambian youngster attracting the interest of Marseille, Chelsea, Spurs, Sporting and Ajax. Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Liverpool have sent scouts and watched him play. Sporting or any Spanish side would have the best chance of signing the player.Nelson Weiper (S) Mainz kiddie Weiper has been doing very well and has progressed to the first team squad whilst attracting many scouts to watch him including those from Eintracht Frankfurt and Liverpool. Would not be interested in dropping back in to the youth setup so a move this summer is unlikely



05 May 2023 09:37:22
ds is there interest in Sepp van den Berg or might he stay and replace a departing CB in the squad?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - He has had a lengthy injury so interest is unlikely.}

1.) 05 May 2023 13:42:18
I like Sepp and think he has a future at the club, shame about the injury but he has a small window to prove himself and maybe a Prem team will want to loan him next season.

2.) 05 May 2023 17:46:56
Counts as HG next season. Let Nat and Rhys go and give Sepp a chance to take their place as 5th choice CB. He's very comfortable on the right side so could also play on the right in in a 3.

3.) 05 May 2023 19:55:32
Agree with Pelican, selling Williams and Phillips and integrating VDB is a good idea . Can play right back as well.

4.) 05 May 2023 21:18:12
He's not going to want to be fifth choice, lads who in their right mind would?

5.) 05 May 2023 21:27:27
I can’t see a prem team wanting on loan after that injury. Being 5th choice next season is perfect cup games and under 23 games to give the lad a season to get back up to gear without too much pressure.

6.) 05 May 2023 22:20:29
U23?no way he's going to want to go back to that after 2 and a half years out on loan even with the injury.4th choice fair enough if Matip moves on but he's going to want realistic chances of games here or a loan somewhere else again. Was in the Schalke side before his injury and doing very well.

7.) 06 May 2023 06:20:43
I read that he scored on his return to the Schalke side and helped them to a 2-1 win. I would not be opposed to moving Matip on with VDB taking his place in the squad.

8.) 06 May 2023 06:26:51
Jude he has been out for over 6 months so it is highly unlikely he will be match fit to play again this season so who would want him on loan without him proving him self over the injury. So to start as 5th choice for us is about right and wants fully fit if he is good enough he can push to move up the pecking order but as things stand it does not look like we are going to get champions league football so am sure there will be plenty of chances in cup games for him to play and u23 is perfect to get back up and running.

{Ed001's Note - Sepp has played in Schalke's last 2 matches mate.}

9.) 06 May 2023 07:44:27
Or thanks Ed did not know last I see he got injured again after his return.

{Ed001's Note - he is back now and playing. They love him at Schalke amongst the coaching staff, he has really impressed them. I hope that means he has a bright future with us as I like him.}

10.) 06 May 2023 09:53:53
It won't happen but i'd gladly let Matip, Gomez, Phillips and Williams go if it meant getting a usually fit starter level centrehalf in to compete with Ibou and Van Dijk with Sepp as fourth choice. With us in the Europa there should be plenty of opportunity to rest the first choice pair.

11.) 06 May 2023 11:47:15
And scored too, I think ?.

12.) 07 May 2023 00:38:07
Rumours are Matip will be let go in the summer. I’m fine with as although he’s been a good servant he’s too inconsistent and injury prone to keep as an aging player on high wages (due to coming as a free agent) if he’s not going to be a starter, and I see Ibou as clearly ahead of him now. Sepp to come in as 4th choice for me and look for another CN if Homez wants to leave for games, which wouldn’t surprise me.

13.) 07 May 2023 08:09:30
Sepp was very good at full back for Preston, obviously not ideal to play out of position but a good sign that he can play in an unfamiliar position so well and showed he’s handy with the ball at his feet. Another loan will be good and then look to bring him into the squad, we need to be looking from within before we look to spend money.

Wow mate I just read your player-profile on Harvey Scott Elliott now. It really reads like a glowing and exciting report. Personally, I want him in the squad next season and I guess take Shaqiri's place and be brilliant! So, I got to ask! How much potential do you really see him having? I think that if he gets minutes he'll get goal contributions.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I think he has potential to be a top class player, it is all up to him. If he continues to work as hard as he did with Rovers, he will deserve a place somewhere in the team. Not so sure why he would replace Shaq though? Elliott is a front 3 player, Shaq was playing in midfield. We still need midfield players, Elliott is probably more of a replacement for Taki or Origi if he has to replace someone, rather than just being an addition to strengthen.}

1.) 17 Jun 2021 06:33:45
I’d saw a Grealish-type player in Elliott in the past, someone able to play a number of roles, including an advanced midfielder.
How is he getting on physically Ed001?
My main reservation is his size, he was fairly diminutive (though not frail) and there are some monsters in the PL these days. I wouldn’t want to throw him in too early but, at the same time, the Championship can be physical also so perhaps he can play a role in our squad?

{Ed001's Note - Grealish-type? I hope not.

He is fine physically, but the only way he will learn to battle against stronger opponents is to face them.}

2.) 17 Jun 2021 09:30:54
Ed01, it would be interesting to get your thoughts on the reasons why you think Elliot is more of a front 3 player. I ask cos our front three basically (not totally due to Bobbie) have some pace to them overall. Therefore, how would Elliot be suitable to this setup cos to me, he prefers to have the ball to feet and orchestrate and is not that pacey. Or will it just be a case of him adding something diff. to the the front 3? Cheers, man.

{Ed001's Note - he is as quick as Bobby. He has pace, he was fond of drifting past players and then accelerating away from them last season before playing a ball in. Playing on the left he probably doesn't cut in enough for the way we play, but he is certainly quick enough.}

3.) 17 Jun 2021 10:17:12
Yeah good point, I guess I was being a bit lazy with my comparison. So you'd be happy going into the season with front 3 options Salah, Elliot, Mane, Jota, Firmino +1?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

4.) 17 Jun 2021 11:52:14
Thanks, Ed01 for the response. Really interesting to see how Elliot does if he is given time with the first team. Not sure he needs a loan anymore. He needs to get his hands (or legs) dirty at the highest level and the PL is the best place to do so.

5.) 17 Jun 2021 12:36:35
The better parts of Grealish’s game lol.
I watched the two England warm-up matches.
You can see Klopp’s influence on Henderson, one / two touches and bang, the ball is gone.
Grealish is a minimum of three, mostly four or more touches, no wonder he attracts fouls.
He can play though but if Elliott listens to Klopp he could be a real un.



17 Jun 2021 01:13:49

Hi Eds and fellow Reds. I have a question for any Liverpudlians here about Anfield's redevelopment. I was admiring the pics of how nice the finished stadium will look and shared them with some friends who immediately shot back about the shame of Liverpool FC "forcing people out of their homes and intentionally letting the area around the ground fall into total disrepair to push down property prices. "

I'm a lifelong Red but a Dubliner, so I would love to get a sense of the real facts and feelings behind the whole thing from some locals. I know mistakes were made but have amends been made and how do people feel about the process overall? Thanks all YNWA and bring on Norwich! :)

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Your friends are correct - there was some degree of social cleansing of the Anfield area with Liverpool buying property and leaving it empty for years and persuading the Council to use Compulsory Purchase Orders to purchase the rest. After lying to the Council about their consulation with the locals about the plans for Anfield there was a delay and the two phased approach decided. In February 2020 Liverpool took out a mortgage on all assets (the Freehold and leasehold of Anfield and about 90 properties (some of which were obtained CPO) with the charge held by Natwest.}

1.) 16 Jun 2021 11:32:03
Hmm, okay. So did they get above market value or have they been compensated? Will the Melwood housing project plus the development around the stadium really be beneficial? Overall in the long-run how do the local people of Liverpool feel about it?

2.) 16 Jun 2021 11:38:54
As far as i’m concerned the club owe the locals and owe them badly. I seemed to think it was Hicks and Gillette who bought up all the property around the ground but it seems like i’m wrong. If i remember rightly a lot of it was round the back of the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand as the car park backed up right to the walls of the houses at the back. I could never understand why so many of them were empty and it seemed like such a shame, but as Ed has described it was the club that forced the people out. The boss little chippy right outside the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand closed a few years ago and again that seemed very strange. Have the locals taken up issue with the club or the council about any of this Ed002, because it very much seems to be, as you put it, ‘social cleansing’?

{Ed002's Note - They last took issue as far as I know afer the the club lied about the consultation process.}

3.) 16 Jun 2021 12:50:58
The demand for old inner city housing, like around the Anfield area, has been falling for over 40 years and many similar parts of Britain show this pattern of increased disrepair, empty properties, private landlords moving in, and increased crime.
LFC have contributed to this issue locally, they’ve been buying up empty houses at rock bottom prices and leaving them empty for years.
But this was only part of a much larger problem.
The clearance of some old housing stock, redevelopment of new housing and the stadium may help to bring in new investment to the area but it’s a complex and long term issue.
Football brings in a lot of money to the city but its costs are largely felt by residents living around the two stadiums.

4.) 16 Jun 2021 13:11:27
There were/ are (not sure anymore) a lot of empty house that Liverpool fc didn’t own in that area. The council did a project were you could buy a house for £1 but you had to renovate it yourself and not sell again within a certain time period. Am sure someone will correct me if am wrong. Unfortunately Compulsory Purchase Orders do happen just look at the HS2!

5.) 16 Jun 2021 13:57:38
Was the same on Manchester and some of the far North areas of England I believe Longthing.

6.) 17 Jun 2021 07:18:01
Think that was in the Kensington area not Anfieid Longthing.



14 Jan 2021 16:14:56
Adrian left out of training, Ed would it free up a Non-HG slot if he left? Aware of any interest? Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Obviously if non-HG players leaves it frees up a slot.}

1.) 14 Jan 2021 18:03:25
Are/ were players brought up in Irish football considered home grown or was there any difference in the criteria for them to be considered homegrown compared to others from Europe? If so has this changed with Brexit?

Apologies I know there has been a lot on this topic but I had not seen anything on this particular point, probably as there was no reason to bring it up but thought I'd ask!

{Ed002's Note - Home Grown relates to the FA only. So for Liverpool players having played for English and Welsh sides for 3 years between the ages of 16 and 21 regardless of where they are born. So Nathan Ake is HG in England and Wales, but not in the Netherlands where he was born. He counts as club developed for Chelsea.}



27 Sep 2020 20:11:34
I see Hoever's on the bench for Wolves tonight, for only the second time. Seems a straight-up 1st/ 2nd with him and Semedo. Good for him! Good luck to the lad. Remind me, is there a buy-back clause in that deal?

Jurgen Meister

1.) 27 Sep 2020 22:17:54
And he made his Premier League debut! :)
(in a 0-4 defeat) . Onward and upward! LOL.

It's strange alright Ed002 why Liverpool 'supporters' wouldn't want Liverpool to sign one of their targets. Until he goes to City of course and then it'll be OMG How did we miss out on him? For shame!

Ed any idea if there is a recall option for ven den Berg? He'd certainly be better cover for Matip than Phillips or Williams.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - It would likely not be possible for vdB, but perhaps Rhys Williams.}

Gravenberch and Phillips would add depth. Were reaching the non-HG limit so a low-risk loan isn't the worst idea.

Ah that's what I thought, thanks Ed001. It's a pity for Taki and us, especially with Bobby out at the same time. Hope he's fit to start the EFL Cup game at least. Will be interesting to see if Kaide Gordon gets a chance in that one, too.

Do we know when Minamino will be available again? He looked very sharp in preseason either on the left or in the middle interchanging with Sadio. Would love to see him get a start. I'd keep Jones in midfield and give him a chance, haven't seen him being effective as a LF for a long time.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool aren't very good at giving out information like this, but last I heard was he was not expected back for the UCL game. He is being rated as having a slim chance of being back for the weekend, but that is more through a lack of information to those that track injuries.}

I hear ya, Zed. But I bet I really hate the international windows more. I'm Irish and trying to support and maintain enthusiasm for a team with so many and varied problems is exhausting, believe me. It also makes me realize how spoiled we are as Liverpool fans. Anyone complaining about the quality or depth of this Liverpool squad can only be seeking perfection (or nitpicking) . We have an excellent team that plays beautiful fast football, so let's go get behind them and cheer them on to try and win every game. We've got 4 competitions to look forward to with a grand chance of seeing some silverware, which is really what football is all about and most teams in the world dream of (except City and the League Cup) . At the elite level it is easy to lose sight of the fairer side of football and take for granted the amazing world-class players that we currently have at the club. The standard set by Klopp and the staff and squad is extremely high and we can only strive to break through that glass ceiling to an absolutely phenomenal level and win the biggest trophies in world football. I'm super excited for the upcoming games and season and look forward to every nail-biting moment Liverpool will gloriously throw at us, as they usually do. I mean, at least we're not Arsenal fans, thank dog! lol.
