I have heard that we are in for another Chelsea player in the summer, Willian a free agent may be tempted with life under Klopp with a 3 year contract before retirement in the MLS. A good bit of business if true.

1.) 13 Mar 2020 16:58:38
OP, are you a sucker cos even that rumor doesn't pass the laugh test?


2.) 14 Mar 2020 08:01:42
It almost looks certain that the Euros will be cancelled until next summer.

For me, the powers that he will do everything they can to get the domestic seasons completed, even if it means playing in June.

I could be wrong but the financial and legal implications, especially with clubs vying for promotion and those at the other end, would be pretty drastic.

The Telegraph have reported that we would be crowned champions should the season close early.

As to what other fans think should this happen - I couldn’t give 2 hoots. Especially when where 25 points ahead.

Did LFC put in a bid for Isco?, the rumour that Real rejected 47 million GBP seems LFC did have some serious interest - my question is " is this true? ".

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - No. There was a discussion with another side about Isco but there was no off the cuff bid from Liverpool.}


1.) 02 Feb 2020 10:57:32
No thank you.


 

 

13 Jan 2020 11:55:43
United are interested in Jude Bellingham but Liverpool also have an interest - something could happen over the next few weeks but the United bid however is stronger than Liverpool's interest, hopefully Klopp's pulling power will pull this off.

KingCarlos

1.) 13 Jan 2020 12:41:18
Never see him play, but at 16/ 17 does seem like he would be better off getting regular games at Birmingham for now.


 

 

07 Dec 2019 06:33:50
Hey Eds, what's the deal with Allan Rodrigues de Souza? is he likely to move on due to work permit issues?

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - There seems to be no plan for him at Liverpool - as you say he has Work Permit issues.}


 

 

09 Oct 2019 11:56:03
Hi Eds, my Lyon FC buddy tells me that LFC are back again but this time it is Amine Gouiri who they coould move for, apparently he is only 19, only played a handful of B team games but had a stella time with France at the under 17's a few years back? Gouiri, Elliot and Brewster the next generation Has any of this news passed through your desk?

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to Lyon by Liverpool in respect of Armine Gouiri but as a 15 and 16 year old he had the attention of a number of leading sides including Manchester City and Chelsea. A couple of years ago an Arsenal scout (who they stupidly sacked) persuaded Arsene Wenger to look at the kid - and Arsenal tried very hard to strike a deal with Lyon but he eventually signed a professional contract and stayed where he was. Whilst Liverpool continue to have scouts looking at youngsters, Gouiri is of an age now where moving to England would not allow him to be HG and unless he would be first team material then he would be taking up a non-HG place within a year - and that has to be a consideration as well nowadays. Sorry I can’t help.}


1.) 09 Oct 2019 23:23:54
Can't help? that was a tremendous answer.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 10 Oct 2019 06:11:23
Thanks Ed002 - Interesting to see Chelsea as always interested, would have been nice to pick up yet another ex Chelsea player.

Question for you Redmen, if someone offered 50m GBP for Gini in the winter or summer would you take it or leave it?

KingCarlos

1.) 10 Jan 2020 23:40:23
I’d take it and retire I reckon, decent money that.


2.) 10 Jan 2020 23:59:57
No he’s a cog in our system don’t fix what’s not broken.


3.) 11 Jan 2020 00:39:16
I’d take it, I could retire on £50 million!


4.) 11 Jan 2020 04:31:39
If you are talking about the Football Manager game, of course I would take.


5.) 11 Jan 2020 07:45:07
No.



Nowadays 50mil gets you Gylfi Sigurdson or Richarlison (sorry ed25 😅) .

I jest about the Everton players but the point remains that you can’t upgrade on wiji for 50mil who is perfect for our system. Unless he wants to leave, he stays for me.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i could argue with you shaq..


6.) 11 Jan 2020 09:15:54
I'm not saying gini is easily replaced and I do think he is worth more than 50mil to us but we have an awesome team and can afford to bring in a youth player to bed him in now because we have a team capable of carrying and developing a youngster and are no longer a few good players carrying the team.


7.) 11 Jan 2020 09:55:42
Absolutely not.


8.) 11 Jan 2020 10:53:45
It'd be a consideration if Lallana, Ox or Keita had been consistently fit and available over the past two years. They haven't though.


9.) 11 Jan 2020 08:53:12
50 Million these days in football is next to bugger all, no chance.


10.) 11 Jan 2020 12:50:31
No chance. Paid more for Naby Keita and Gini would get picked 9/ 10 times over him.


11.) 11 Jan 2020 13:42:03
Gini stays and I'll fight anyone who tries to take him!


12.) 11 Jan 2020 20:42:36
Absolutely f##king not bob.

Nathaniel Phillips returning from Stuttgart should suggest that a new CB is not on the cards this transfer window.

KingCarlos

1.) 28 Dec 2019 10:47:23
I don’t think there ever was mate. Matip and Lovren have both played very well this season When called upon. Now Joe is looking back to his best. Their only downfall is staying fit so if they were to be replaced then we would need to buy someone who is better than Joe and Matip as when fit they will always likely start alongside VVD.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 12:09:59
JK, totally agree. Also, we don't need a CB esp. since both Matip and Lovs will be back next month. Phillips was brought back for cover as we are lacking bodies in that area at the moment. Will he start games? I doubt it BUT having him around is a good thing. Also, Ed01 said that he has some health issues (Angina, I think) so it could be a combination of both health and CB cover issues.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know if he has health issues, just that it was reported he was missing with angina. No idea of any more than that, but it is something I have never heard of a player missing games with before.}


3.) 28 Dec 2019 13:00:07
A few of the Utd team (especially Pogba) have been missing for a few seasons now but I think that is down to Mangina more than angina 😉.


4.) 28 Dec 2019 14:20:18
Should you even be playing football if you have angina.


5.) 28 Dec 2019 14:52:58
Thanks for the clarification, Ed. JK, Mangina? Loved it, man.


 

 

03 Dec 2019 23:30:52
This is wishful thinking more than anything, Dries Mertens contract with Napoli is up in the summer, this would be a great player to snap up to add depth to our front three. I only put it out there as we had an interest in Franck Ribery in the summer. I am just putting it out there, thoughts?

KingCarlos

1.) 04 Dec 2019 02:49:26
If we could snap him up for free, on low wages, and he's willing to sit on the bench as a bit-part player? Sure, why not?


2.) 04 Dec 2019 07:08:34
Not saying it would be possible, but I’d love it if we could. He’s a fantastic player.


3.) 04 Dec 2019 09:02:25
On a three year deal at £120,000 per week we would fork out £18.7 million for a bench warmer. He would be 36 at the end of his contract. In what sense is this "free" .

Whatever you do, don't go in to business.


4.) 04 Dec 2019 10:41:59
Lol exactly my thoughts ritters.


5.) 04 Dec 2019 13:20:25
Ritters, you obviously missed the sarcasm in my post as well as the bit about low wages.

Whatever you do, don't go into copywriting.


 

 

28 Aug 2019 10:55:43
I have always preferred Matip on the ball than Lovren, but Matip is starting to finally find his confidence. Those forward runs he makes are the best - you cannot have a defensive strategy for that - hope he does more of it and unleashes a few shots, he may pick up goal of the season.

After watching Bruno Fernandes you would be daft not to buy him for 70m Euro if you can get shot of Wilson and Kent for 35m Euro, he is a very different class to those 2 and would cover the front 3 and middle attacking position. Still think we are still interested in him.

KingCarlos

1.) 25 Jul 2019 20:38:16
I would not pay 70 million Euro for a player based on his performance in a pre season friendly.


2.) 25 Jul 2019 20:55:40
I'm with you thunderbird.


3.) 25 Jul 2019 21:11:26
Not basing on the friendly but Fernandes would be a fantastic addition. One I feel that can be the difference for us similar to how silva was for city last year.

I agree he’s an improvement on all of our back up players. That being said, I have no clue on our finance situation and whether he’d be happy for rotation. But I’d happily sell kent, Wilson, lallana and even shaq if it could be used to bring in Fernandes.


4.) 25 Jul 2019 21:44:25
31 goals ( from Midfield ) in 65 appearances.

Pre season or not, you could see his quality last night.


5.) 25 Jul 2019 22:02:08
15 goals (from Midfield) in 119 appearances in Serie A.
I don't watch Portuguese football but i'm sure the quality of the league is lower than England, Italy, Germany and Spain.


6.) 25 Jul 2019 22:03:07
Very impressive drogie, I must admit mate I don't know much about the lad so I can't really have an opinion on him.


7.) 25 Jul 2019 22:16:30
Udinese and Sampdoria are not teams that dominate games or the ball so it's an unfair stat to put him down with imo. He has Grown as a player since then as well.


8.) 25 Jul 2019 22:34:52
King Carlos, Klopp has just said in an interview (and for the upteenth time) that there will be no big signings this season cos we already did that in the last two summers. Also, say we or another team would be daft to not sign him, is a very myopic way of looking at things. I have not seen him play hence, have no opinion of him. But if only Utd are in for him then it tells me that teams are prolly staying away cos he may not be worth it. I don't know n by the way, we cannot be interested in every player just cos you or I like him.


9.) 26 Jul 2019 06:50:49
He’ also predominantly a central midfielder, but was deployed as a centre forward, an offensive midfielder, and a wide player on both flanks last season.

He is a very good player.

We are not playing 3 CB's with our high press, sometimes we only have VVD at the back especially when Matip goes on one of his runs.

Pedro Chirivella has done enough to get game time elsewhere, good luck to the lad and hope you do well.

@stoneage 5 a side needs warriors who are multi skilled and full of energy, Gomez check, Gini check, Mane check and Booby check and you need Allison in goal who can also use his feet, check. Someone mentioned Milner that was a good shout and Henderson too would be but these are my 5.

5 a-side is very different to 11 a-side, if you have played the game.

KC.

Virgil would be no good in a 5 a side, try Allison, Gomez, Gini, Mane, Bobby.

I am not convinced that rushing to a decision is the right thing to do, I personally do not see football being played this year. That is why I suggested the 20/ 21 season is scrapped and we finish this current season restarting from Feb 2020 with pre season friendlies and start the season early March. As for ECL and that other European competition I have no idea how to sort that mess out.

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - It is not possible to scrap next season. Many clubs, including Liverpool, would not survive.}

Ryan Giggs, Ronaldo from Manchester United and our very own Xabi Alonso stand out for me. Jamie Carragher deserves a mention as he only missed out on EPL and World Club winners medals at domestic level.

All I can say is do not plan an overseas holiday if you live on an Island or your next landlocked country has strict border controls in the next 18 months, I think European football next season will not happen and it will disrupt oversea transfers in the next transfer window (maybe January and the next) as a player moving oversea would involve the player being quarantined - you would just hope that after 2 weeks in quarantine they do pass the medical.
