Ed002 you think interest could now develop in a free agent CB like Ezequiel Garay?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool cannot sign him.}

1.) 19 Oct 2020 09:52:22
Even if we could sign Garay, we'd be replacing a player out with a cruciate ligament injury with one recovering from a cruciate ligament injury.

When someone good is on a free, do people not think to check why?

2.) 19 Oct 2020 10:40:35
Just for clarification, do you mean that we can't sign Garay specifically, or can we not sign any of the current free agents at all?

{Ed002's Note - Can't sign any free agents.}

3.) 19 Oct 2020 10:00:01
10 years ago he’d have been ok. The bloke is 34 and not really going to cope well in the PL at his age.

4.) 19 Oct 2020 12:42:29
OK Ed. 02, thanks for replying.

5.) 19 Oct 2020 12:59:55
Yeah just scraping the barrel for short-term solutions really. Of course Fabinho and the youngsters will have to do it for now. So fingers crossed the Thiago news is good and Matip stays fit for once. Could maybe sign Rüdiger on loan in January.



10 Sep 2020 19:34:08
Ed002 I wonder is there still a possibility of Liverpool moving for Filip Stevanovic? You said there's an offer on the table for him from another club but no transfer can go through until he turns 18 on September 25th? So is it conceivable that Liverpool could bid for him closer to then (with money they get for Wilson maybe) and we won't actually miss out on this terrific signing you've lauded?
Thanks a million as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I think it would be a great move and a specific scout has been advocating him for a couple of years - but I suspect it is now unlikely.}

1.) 10 Sep 2020 20:19:39
Sad face emoji.
Having him and Elliot as Mane and Salah's deputies and eventual successors does seem the perfect formula for our wide-forward positions. You think it's unlikely because you expect Partizan to keep him and auction him for big big money next year, is it?

{Ed002's Note - No, because he will not be heading to Liverpool right now.}

2.) 10 Sep 2020 20:34:54
Maybe Musialowski or Balagizi are earmarked for that role with Elliott. We already have a lot of fantastic kids at the club. Stefanavic does look the real deal though.

3.) 10 Sep 2020 20:34:22
ed002 I thought he had signed for Utd weeks ago. If he has not I have not seen him play but would take your word that his a very good prospect but with us not seeming to sell to may players I don't think we will be signing anybody let alone 17 year olds for £10m+. I do think there will be few more players move around before the close of the window though I just think its a game of nerves teams holding out for there prices to be met.

4.) 10 Sep 2020 20:37:02
Ah ok. There it is in black and white. Damn.
I guess I'll just pour myself another drink instead. Cheers Ed002!

5.) 10 Sep 2020 22:30:04
I thought this guy had an agreement with manU?

6.) 11 Sep 2020 10:34:57
I think Serbian wonderkids (Markovic) probably make us very anxious to part with our money now lol.



03 Sep 2020 14:56:48
Ed002 mate do you know of interest in Lille's Soumare? French press have Liverpool's name on a list of interested clubs but I have my doubts, can't see where he'd fit in.
Thanks a lot.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Boubakary Soumare (DM/CM) - Soumare is being touted around the clubs that have money to spend and several have spoken with Lille but want the €60M asking price reduced. His "agent" (and I use the term loosely) says the player has no interest in joining Spurs or Arsenal but his client is the ideal replacement for Pogba or Kante and is attracted by the money available to players in England. Ironically both Spurs anbd Arsenal took a look at him - but he was not first choice for either. Valencia, Real Madrid and Napoli are others who have been looking at him on a regular basis - but price is an issue. Until the summer Manchester City had an interest since he was at PSG and it was suggested he could fill the role of Yaya Toure well. Monaco saw him as a Bakayoko replacement but have stepped back. Brands wanted him at Everton but was forced down the Gbamin route by an advisor. Liverpool were also approached and have discussed the price with his agent but he would have to be a replacement for Fabinho - and that was a few months ago. Milan, Newcastle and Leicester made enquiries - and Newcastle were close to a deal in January and may push again this summer to reach an agreement with Lille. There is an issue Lille need to resolve before selling him - and his price must drop.

1.) 03 Sep 2020 20:31:32
Kante you think he’s not wanted at Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

2.) 04 Sep 2020 13:46:52
Wow thanks a million, Ed002. Mind blowing answer. :)



07 Aug 2019 14:29:45
Wow I totally missed the fact that Rhys Williams had joined Kidderminster Harriers on loan until January. Playing in the national league north should toughen him up a bit, and John Pemberton seems like a good coach. Good luck Rhys!

Jurgen Meister

1.) 07 Aug 2019 15:58:34
Was in the team of the week first game, good start!

With all these cb’s leaving seems we are very light in defence for youth.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 09:34:10
Yeah I was looking forward to seeing him and van den Berg partnered up.



20 Jun 2019 09:02:07
Mornin Eds.
Reading conflicting reports of Rafa Camacho supposedly off to either Schalke or Sporting, any chance Ed002 or anyone knows what's really happening and can clear this up?

Thanks very much and have a great day.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Rafael Camacho (AM) Sporting still want a loan to buy deal but will have an influx of money which will allow them to commit to buying. Interest of Benfica has probably gone as they were looking to a loan with an option to buy. Wolves are interested and have been for sometime. Schalke have been in discussions with Liverpool recently and are interested in buying the player outright.}

1.) 20 Jun 2019 11:00:01
Wow great thanks a mil Ed002!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 20 Jun 2019 11:02:47
Thanks Ed! I am assuming, given the contract situation, we would do a loan to buy?

Do you think he has the qualities to of been given a chance at some point? Whenever I have seen him he has been decent enough but difficult to judge given his lack of experience!

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him. He has been told he will get chances and that was untrue - he has also said when he did play it was out of position. This is the growing problem the Premier League clubs are seeing - the kids want immediate first team game time and those who have been promised chances (which we know Klopp does) then get miffed and want to move on. A month or so ago I was with the Sporting Director (and very high end scout) of a German side and he was in London looking at kids from Arsenal, Fulham and Chelsea and he was explaining that German sides are going to be pushing to look to signing kids from England as they offer realistic routes in to the top-level game. So lots of sides from Germany are looking.}

3.) 20 Jun 2019 12:05:22
It must be difficult for young players to be promised stuff like that for it to just be a lie!

I do think we should be giving more opportunities when maybe we are comfortable in a game to maybe let players like Camacho have 10/ 15mins of experience.

I just don’t get why managers don’t do that more often, and would of assumed Klopp would be someone of that ilk, do you think the pressure of being at Liverpool has led him to be less youth driven? I know at Dortmund he was really good at nurturing youth.

I believe the same thing Ed, it is an interesting approach by German clubs and one that we have seen is fruitful, we as a country of academy’s produce quite a lot of decent players but as you say we don’t ever offer as much exposure as German clubs.

What would be your approach to youth at Liverpool so that we are still offering a route to the first team and exposure that makes us seem an attractive club for your players and their development?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are doing better than they used to but it is not structured or managed well still.}

4.) 20 Jun 2019 13:00:38
I suppose the difficulty managers have is that they may fully intend giving young players some time on the pitch but then that gets pushed aside once a certain group of players starts doing well. I doubt any Liverpool supporter - sad but true - wanted to see Camacho replace any of our players in the first team last season given we were pushing so hard for the league and CL. If he was playing out of his skin in training and the U21s then maybe he'd have got more chances but do we know if that was the case? Probably not.

{Ed002's Note - The answer is don't make promises or kowtow to players.}

5.) 20 Jun 2019 16:18:02
Agreed Ed, if that filters through the youth teams of broken promises that’s going to have a negative impact on the rest of them.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 16:42:15
Half the problem is expectancy of fans. If a young player doesn't hit the ground running or isn't Neymar then there's howls of "he's crap, get rid, spend £60 million on a suitable replacement". And this coming from fans who playing wise aren't fit to kiss the studs of the young players they're busy slagging off.
Unfortunately the sheer majority of fans these days have no idea at all of what it's like for players trying to climb through the ranks and stake their claim for a spot in the team/ squad.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 17:21:37
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.

8.) 20 Jun 2019 22:10:57
Personally I'd say if the youth players were actually good enough to displace the starting 11 and were leaving we would have a problem.

9.) 21 Jun 2019 00:51:18
Not sure what the answer is in the PL, but it seems the way to get above the opposition, you can't do it with the kids, unless they are exceptional, players like Trent for instance! Aren't the younger players happy enough to go on decent loans, with a clause that says they have to play a certain amount of games, like I believe we have done? Camacho for one, he had to understand who was in front of him to play in his favoured place! Maybe we didn't go as far as we had hoped in the domestic cups or these fringe players might have played more, who knows!

10.) 21 Jun 2019 00:52:03
I guess it could partly be because the premier league is so competitive. There really no stroll in the park games like in Germany or Spain (sides that would struggle to stay in the championship) to blood youth into the side. Domestic cup runs are another matter both but we did terribly in both.

11.) 20 Jun 2019 23:45:43
@johnnyr1970: Camacho was top scorer for the U23s and one of the stars this season. It's simply a lack of patience. He's only 18 but could realistically have envisioned overtaking Shaqiri next season and maybe even replacing Salah when he leaves in a year or two. He's a good young player but not developed enough yet to be a consistent first teamer. Like Ed002 keeps saying, it's a problem that many clubs are having with youth players and the reason German clubs are quite cleverly fishing around in England. Best case scenario probably a good offer from Schalke for example with a buy-back clause if possible.

12.) 21 Jun 2019 03:56:48
interesting ed002, i had to google and didn't realise kowtow's accepted use in english language.

learn something new everyday i suppose.

{Ed002's Note - I see it as a social service to try and teach the Liverpool supporters a farrago of new words every day.}

13.) 21 Jun 2019 12:59:37
ed002 would you say apart from the big 2 teams most leagues have got. Would you say the premier league is the easiest league to get sacked. Bringing more pressure to managers here making it harder to blood youth players unless they are all ready top class. Its like they need to be at the same standard as full Internationals as soon as they get in the teams. What does not help as well is the value young british players have on them ryan sessegnon springs to mind with the £50m they rated him at before he had even played in the top flight. And with Youth players some are so much more developed than others and it makes them look so much better than until they play against men and they lose that advantage.

{Ed002's Note - I don't really get the question but the answer would be no if you think more coaches get sacked in the PL than elsewhere - take last season - the Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and La Liga all saw more coaches sacked than the PL.}

14.) 21 Jun 2019 14:34:30
yes ed002 that was the point I thought more coaches got sacked here. So I was just think they don't have the time to blood young players in. And with are league being the most competitive I does make it harder. Was it a good year for are managers last season though ed can't remember to many getting the chop. I think Fulham got rid of 2 not sure about Huddersfield did there manager walk then there was Southampton, utd and Leicester but that seems quite low for normal.

{Ed002's Note - The Spanish and Italian sides are rather less forgiving than the PL sides. It is unrelated to playing kids.}

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.



24 Sep 2020 00:44:13
Ok, so I am right now exactly one-third of the way through watching Pep Lijnders' pre-match press conference. And, seriously, the amount of football knowledge and intelligence I see there is outstanding. With a healthy dose of realism, optimism and just basically the right morals, imo.

He's got 'Klopp successor' written all over him. I feel he exudes the exact same type of energy.
Leave Gerrard in Glasgow. If we want to build something really lasting, it's continuity that'll do that. Discuss.
(Ed001: I 'd actually be especially interested in your opinion on Our Pep very much. He really seems to me a very good coach. )

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I would judge him more on the work he has done on the training ground, which has really shone. Since he replaced Buvac the team has gone up a level and look much improved. Whether that makes him a great manager or not in the future is a different matter, but as a coach he has certainly impressed massively.}

1.) 24 Sep 2020 08:57:14
Agreed, I'd be delighted if he got his chance after Klopp. When Buvac left I must admit I was bricking it a bit but we've thrived.

2.) 24 Sep 2020 09:27:49
Well said, Ed001. I guess case and point are the excellent coaches that worked with Fergie while he was in charge of Man Utd (I'm thinking Quiroz, Phelan, Rene Meulensteen and a few others that escape me) . All of them were wonderful coaches from what I understand, but I think its safe to say that they all struggled once they stepped up to manager at other clubs.

It would be a great story though if Lijnder's did step up and take over once Klopp does leave!

Red Sandman.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure Phelan is a wonderful coach, he was responsible for turgid football when he worked with Fergie and he is now doing it again under the bus driver.}

3.) 24 Sep 2020 10:17:35
I have watched interviews Pep has done on other Youtube fan channels and he guy is absolutely brilliant. The guy knows his stuff. He once, explained that LFC did not change the way they played going into the 18/ 19 season. We only evolved. He said he and Klopp knew that teams would park the bus against us and not in his words, "overplay" as in come out and have a go so we can press them in transition and blow them away.

To negate this, Pep said they needed to stay longer in the opponents half and make the FB's even more advanced, use set pieces as clear goalscoring opportunities and prevent counter attacks. This is where recruiting Fabinho came in. Per Pep and Klopp, Fab was rated as the best DM in cutting out counter-attacks and we now see that LFC have scored the most goals from set pieces for 2 seasons and counting.

Now I don't know whether Pep can be a good manager or any of that BUT in terms of raw coaching ability and tactics? He is a genius, IMO. No wonder Klopp ended his relationship with Buvac.

4.) 24 Sep 2020 10:21:32
Leave Gerrard in Glasgow is right.

5.) 24 Sep 2020 10:36:08
It will be a very sad day when Klopp does leave us as what he has built is truly amazing. The owners will know that they need to replace him correctly as we know first hand how the fall from grace can happen and take years to recover. UTD are still feeling that pain currently.

6.) 24 Sep 2020 11:12:47
Yeah we are lucky to have Klopp and Pep. The standards and style they've set at Liverpool is phenomenal. I enjoyed the Houllier years and the cup treble in particular. We all loved Rafa but let's be honest the football we played was tough to watch at times. This era is just next level already and long may it continue. Bring on the quadruple! Should be a fun game tonight. :)

7.) 24 Sep 2020 12:20:12
Don’t mention Gerard and liverpool coach in the same sentence please stop with that crap! If he had balls he’d go the championship for the dog fight to prove himself not that Mickey Mouse crap he’s in now!
Rant over.

8.) 24 Sep 2020 13:32:20
100% Jay but there will be lots on here who think he should get it after Klopp just because he captained the club for a while. I'd sooner see Jordan Henderson get the managers job before Gerrard.

9.) 24 Sep 2020 13:40:32
100% agree Jay Dub. Did Phelan dictate the style of play at Utd then Tris?

{Ed001's Note - yes, Fergie used the assistants under him to set the style of play and ensure that it would evolve gradually.}

10.) 24 Sep 2020 16:16:55
IMO, I doubt Gerrard possesses the coaching and tactical acumen that Ljinders possesses and he is "just" an assistant so thos wanting him to succeed Klopp had better hope he has the ability to do the job. We can all see how poor Lampard is right now and he only got the Chelsea job cos of who he is, NOT cos he was really qualified.

IMO if SG wants the LFC job then he will have to fo and flat our EARN it. If he cannot then, he should be nowhere near that job.

Cos if we truly reach the potential that Klopp wants us to meet with a couple of PL's and say 1 CL, SG will NEVER get the job cos it will be way too big for him. It is way too big for him now hence, he will have to buckle up fast if he really wants the job in the future.

11.) 25 Sep 2020 03:44:14
I loved Gerrard as I player and I want to see him succeed as a manager, do I want him to manage at Liverpool? Not until he’s proven himself, he doesn’t deserve it on merit alone.! years ago we promoted managers from within right up to Roy Evan’s, it would be nice if we could get back to that. One thing I will say is though is, we should always strive to better ourselves and if there’s a better manager available sentiment shouldn’t get in the way. If pep is good enough for the job, great. But if there’s a better option we should always take it.

{Ed0666's Note - Ljinders deserves the job.

12.) 26 Sep 2020 05:02:54
I love gerrard but where is it in the rules that he has to be the next liverpool manager. He's a young man. 40. There is plenty of time for him. I hope he is one day at the helm again. But no sense rushing it. Also, he might not want to. He might fear tarnishing his reputation. I'd like him to win the league with us though. That would be magic.



17 Sep 2020 13:24:51
Ed002 can you confirm what kind of hand gesture and facial expression Thiago is making during his photo shoot?
Thanks in advance.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Sadly I have not seen it.}

Ah your crystal ball must be on the fritz.

2.) 17 Sep 2020 16:21:16
That was uncalled for.



15 Sep 2020 18:05:40
Just want to say I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed that rip-roaring belter of a football game against Leeds. Credit to them and to Bielsa, it was everything that most football-loving fans had hoped for.
We made some mistakes and conceded a few goals, but so what? We won't face many teams like Leeds this season and they're going to cause a lot of teams a lot of problems. And who doesn't love a 4-3 win!?

My girlfriend was cool enough to watch plenty of Liverpool games with me last season. But for her, none compared to that last game, during which she was absolutely spellbound and literally on the edge of the couch for 90 minutes. :)
Bring on Chelsea, I say. No fear of them. They're the ones who are going to have to majorly up their intensity from their last game to get a result against us.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 15 Sep 2020 18:49:33
Jm imagine that game on Saturday with a full Anfield crowd. Football entertainment was a winner on sat but the losers were the Fans for both teams that couldn’t get into the stadium to witness it. Imagine the atmosphere. Think it would have resembled a CL night.

2.) 15 Sep 2020 19:11:41
Be an even better game this weekend. 5-2 win vs Chelsea. That's what the crystal ball says 👌

There will be an incident on the 63rd minute where a rogue Chelsea fan known only as "Tyrion" breaks into the stadium and gives Werner a kiss.

{Ed025's Note - love it HMB..

3.) 15 Sep 2020 19:39:03
You are a riot, HMB. Loved it and you know what, you could be right. If he does not give Werner a kiss, you can guarantee Kante will get a wet one planted on his cheek.

4.) 15 Sep 2020 21:23:35
If Tyrion is giving anyone a kiss it's Kovacic.

5.) 15 Sep 2020 21:24:03
How will Harry even get past Chelsea’s midfield to even get to Timo? He Can’t run with that scraping against his zipper. 🤣.

6.) 16 Sep 2020 11:57:49
Thunderbird 2, I think Kovacic has moved on from Harry. Not sure Harry has moved on from him, tho.

Okay, thanks Ed002. Kabak deal appears to be progressing. Will be keeping a very, very close eye on the kid. I guess the good thing is he is young and can hopefully learn/ mature.

If Caleta-Car's not happening then I guess Kabak with just an option is okay for now, but the spitting incident was vile and he'd better shape up his attitude pronto or he'll have no chance of sticking around.

Jurgen Meister

By suitable you mean the length of contract or what's the issue? I think it's very important that we keep him and would be happy to see him stay a few more years. We need to keep a core of quality senior players like him, he's basically 4th captain as Klopp has said and by all his teammates accounts is a great personality to have in and around the squad.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - He will have expectations in terms of the financial package (which I am sure will not be excessive) and in terms of the length of the contract - and Liverpool know what those expectations are - so it is up to them to offer something acceptable. To date they only seem to have dragged the matter out. Unless they plan on using Grujic to replace him they would likely need to buy a replacement and that won't be easy with money being tight.}

LOL i love it when players are 'offered' to clubs, it's fun to imagine the sales pitch like a used car salesman. complete with flash highlights video set to cheap electro beats and a shiny embossed dossier on the player. step right up step right up! as the player seductively parades around on a platform. Hmm, i may have gotten a little carried away.

Hang on, what are yous on about? I watch every minute of every game and must've missed the bit when Trent was poor defensively or made repeated mistakes that led to goals or struggled in a game. His crossing and set pieces have been a bit crap, but will come good again. Defensively okay though, can you give specific examples of what you're referring to?

Matip's scan didn't find any major issue but he's just not 100% fit to start on Wednesday so no point in him traveling when Fabinho is a fine stand-in. Matip should be okay for Sheffield on Saturday. I'm reading that Phillips and Rhys Williams are travelling with the squad but Ed002 said Phillips is ineligible so it must be bull. Van den Berg and R. Williams played together in Brighton on Saturday.

I'm feeling the opposite actually Salah, mate. Football is a helpful distraction for me to escape the harsh realities of the world we're currently living in, so I try to watch every minute of every game. I'd even watch the U23s if I could find a stream regularly enough. Another thing I'm noticing this season is I also watch more of some other Premier League games at the weekend not involving Liverpool, which I didn't used to when I had more of a an outdoor social life. It's easy and low stress watching games that I don't really care about the result, the finale of Spurs vs West Ham this weekend was particularly rewarding.
