Hi Eds, pardon me if you've already discussed this before. Is Liverpool really interested in Amine Harit from Schalke? If so, who do you think he'll replace?

Thanks.

Noski

{Ed002's Note - Amine Harit is having a decent season but I am not aware of interest of Liverpool. He would be effectively a like-for-like replacement for Shakiri and he would likely get around the same amount of opportunities. He will be 21 or so now and I would expect a drop to the bench would not be attractive for a player who is playing regularly at a good level. He has turned down clubs in the past as it would stagnate. It makes no sense for the player or the club.}


1.) 20 Nov 2019 02:26:10
Thanks for your response! I appreciate it.


2.) 19 Nov 2019 22:30:24
Ed002 you’ve cited midfield / AM as possible positions that Liverpool may strengthen in summer.
What level of player do you envisage if such a move seems unattractive for this lad?
Someone who’ll go straight in the team or what, as midfield is the one area that Klopp regularly rotates and game time may be more readily available than elsewhere in the team?

{Ed002's Note - If they are to go straight in to the team then first team players will need to leave - so it would not be a simple case of Coutinho replacing Shakiri as Shakiri is a bit part player - the same if replacing Lallana. The club should be looking to see if they can get a work permit for Grujic before looking at the market.}


3.) 20 Nov 2019 12:20:48
On the midfield subject Ed do you think there is a chance Shaqiri might leave in Jan or the Summer in search of more opportunities?

{Ed002's Note - I would think he will go in the Summer.}


4.) 20 Nov 2019 17:11:25
Owe ok mate, I was thinking he might be getting annoyed at lack of playing time. You mentioned Zielinski previously, do you think he is attainable or far fetched for the summer mate please? Guess he wants to be guaranteed starter every week.

{Ed002's Note - As a wildcard I would not lose sight of PZ. Klopp likes him and got Liverpool a warning for tapping him up previously.}


5.) 20 Nov 2019 18:03:51
Ok Ed cheers mate, I get what your saying. Looks a decent player to me, not sure he is a big improvement to what we have but would be a welcome addition imo.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp thought so - but when it all came out (only about a year ago) everyone was in denial because of a new contract at Napoli. Now Napoli are in a very difficult position there might well be an opportunity.}


6.) 20 Nov 2019 22:50:51
Appreciate the info as always Ed. Let’s see what develops.


7.) 21 Nov 2019 12:53:30
Eds, how would Zielinski fit into this midfield though? Keita, Lallana, and Milner have all seen part-time duties from injuries or just lack of opportunity. I get it with Lallana and Milner considering the stage of their careers, but Keita obviously wasn't brought in to sit on the fringes. Do you think he would have to move on in order to make room for Zielinski or do you see a setup where we'd add him without subtracting Keita?

{Ed002's Note - He would have been a significantly better option than Nobby Keita. I don't suppose there would be many tears if he were moved on. But you are right, if players are to come in then others have to go. Against him is also that if Grujic returns and gets a Work Permit how he will fit in to an already crowded midfield where there are three starting places available. Lallana is more attacking that PZ. If money is spent on replacing Shakiri and bringing in a starting player in an attacking role (e.g. the Coutinho type), then that means that there will be only two spots available in midfield - something like 4-2-3-1 or 4-2-1-3.}


8.) 22 Nov 2019 08:55:27
Have to agree with Ed002 about the midfield congestion. Even if Milner and Lallana go, we still have 6 senior midfielders (provided Grujic gets a WP) . How do u expect the club to convince another midfielder to join unless assurances r made that people like Grujic, Keita or even Hendo are moved on?
I'd rather sign a versatile forward to replace Shaq and only sign a midfielder if Grujic or Keita move on.

Sepp van den Berg is the name lots of websites are reporting about at the moment. Eds, any truths in these reports?

Noski

{Ed002's Note - I suspect there is. My notes are out of date but say: Sepp van den Berg (CB) Zwolle kiddie but being watched by a number of sides including PSV, Brighton, Ajax, Lille and Genk - Sampdoria have had a couple of offers rejected - Crystal Palace, Bayern Munich and Liverpool have enquired.}


1.) 25 Jun 2019 10:56:29
Liverpool 'win 1.79m race to sign Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg ahead of Bayern Munich with 17-year-old to have medical on Wednesday.


2.) 25 Jun 2019 13:01:35
Ed01 can you make a player profile on him?

{Ed001's Note - if I can find footage of him to watch I will yes mate. Added him to the list.}


3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:56:37
ed1 please don't lol I feel like a review on a kid is like fuel to the fire for fans. . .


4.) 26 Jun 2019 17:53:30
Lots of pace as he used to be a winger before converting to a centre half. That will probably mean that he'll be able to play as an attacking full back too.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone convert directly from a winger to a centre half.

Sure, winger to full back; centre half to defensive mid; even full back to centre mid (ala Fabinho and Philip Lahm) ; but winger to centre half? never.


5.) 27 Jun 2019 06:18:11
EP, Van Dijk started off as a striker, and I could be completely wrong but didnt Carragher start out upfront too?


6.) 27 Jun 2019 09:52:57
OGRed_Phil. I forgot the centre-half/ forward combo. There's quite a few examples. Chris Sutton was a classic example and regularly played both roles, and dare I mention him? Steven Caulker, haha.

Strikers and Centre Halves share a lot of the same attributes. I don't know if he ever played in defence but I'd imagine that Duncan Ferguson would have made a decent centre half.


 

 

20 Dec 2017 10:35:58
So the Miror is reporting today that Coutinho is finally gone in a few weeks?
Eds, January or summer, what would youh say is most likely?
Thanks.

Noski

{Ed001's Note - summer is the most likely, though he is trying to get himself out in January.}


1.) 20 Dec 2017 10:50:24
The press must read this website daily. A day or so ago Ed002 mentions meetings by Coutinho agents and his family with the owners now apparently the deal is moving forward.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, even when its news I would rather not believe haha.


2.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56
I personally hope it is January. He doesn't want to be here, let's get it over and done with. Would you agree with this Ed1 or would you prefer him to go in the summer when we can get a replacement? I know its a difficult one, he has been playing better recently but still not up to scratch in my opinion, the whole saga has affected his game since the summer, sure he's had a few decent games, that's about it.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 10:51:56

{Ed001's Note - I would have sold him in the summer. For me Leicester are the perfect example of the difference that arises when you have players that want to play for you and players that don't. The team that did won the league and almost that exact same team with a few that no longer wanted to be there was in relegation trouble. I know that is not all it was about, but that was the main issue there and you could see the way one player wanting to leave in Mahrez spread seeds of discontent throughout the squad.}


4.) 20 Dec 2017 13:05:03
He is going, that much we can be sure of, however the important thing is that the club gets the best deal it can and buys a suitable replacement and doesn't waste the money.


5.) 20 Dec 2017 11:55:01
That's a good point actually Ed1, I didn't think of the Leicester saga and I do strongly agree, if we'd of flogged him in the summer without messing about I genuinely do believe we may have done a little better if we had. I think it was all up in the air about his future and he disrupted the squad with his antics.

Things seemed to of settled down the past few weeks but it still doesn't disregard the fact he wants out, why keep a player or attempt to who wants out. I'm not too fussed about transfer prices these days because it's confusing but by the sounds of things we could've got a good price for him in the summer so keeping him when he wanted to leave really baffled me to be honest and what worries me now is, Barcelona have other options lined up, I hope to Christ we don;t bugger about should they put an offer in (no doubt they will) because then they could move onto their next target and we're left lumbered with a player who doesn't want to be here.

It may be just be I don't know, I'm far from intelligent with football like many of you are but many of his games this season it seemed to me like he deliberately didn't give a damn, he's been like a ghost many of the games, going missing and what not, not to mention his 'injurys', this doesn't go down well with me. We're still paying his wages, the respect I had for him is gone having said that if he scores a few past Arsenal then fair play but I can't respect the lad anymore. He could've gone about it all in a much more professional way.

{Ed001's Note - football has moved away from the clubs holding all the power so we may as well have just let him go and let him have his wish. I do also feel we would have done slightly better, though he is still affecting games going forward, he is virtually non-existent when we turnover the ball.}


6.) 20 Dec 2017 12:37:32
Ed, do you not think there's some nuance? Saints decision to keep VVD has clearly backfired, his and their form has nosedived and they'll probably get less money now than they could have in the summer. Keeping Coutinho, right now, seems to have been the right call. There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch. We may even get more money now when he does go.

In hindsight I'd say Liverpool got this one right.

{Ed001's Note - I disagree, there has been a very obvious effect. There have been games when he has cost us badly, with his constant refusal to pass when it was on etc and laziness in working back. The team is not good enough, compared to most of the opponents we face, to carry passengers.}


7.) 20 Dec 2017 12:45:10
Good point Ed001 regards Leicester.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}


8.) 20 Dec 2017 14:35:39
'There's no obvious effect on the team and he's still doing the business on the pitch'

Half or more than half of the games he has played there has been an obvious effect, a negative one. Same goes with him doing business on the pitch, he doesn't do it a lot, it's only been the past few weeks mate.

I'd say maybe 3-4 games I've thought 'now that's the Coutinho we all know' that's not good enough.


9.) 20 Dec 2017 21:42:33
Can't see him moving in January to sit on the bench especially champions league games where we will probably win it and at Barcelona he can't even play.


10.) 21 Dec 2017 15:53:02
I think Ed has a point. Cou may be scoring goals and assists, no doubt BUT that pales in comparison to what he has doing last season as when he was fit and firing, he was brilliant both offensively and defensively. That is not happening now as he is less effective than last season. He does not pass the ball as quickly and often to open players and chooses o shoot rather than pas like he did disgracefully vs Burnley. He moans when he loses the ball way more often than last season (the Spurs game was a disgrace on this point) and his defensive nous (something we all hailed him for) has nose-dived immensely. This is the point I think, Ed is referring to.


 

 

15 May 2017 10:34:49
Ed 002, on May 30, 2016, you stated in your response to a post that Sofiane Feghouli may have been tentatively speculated for Liverpool but you believed he was moving elsewhere with confirmation expected shortly. Well, it happened like you said (not that anyone is surprised you called that right as you almost always do! ) .
Anyway, I thought he was probably the brightest spark for the Hammers yesterday and I was wondering, purely speculating, if there'll any movement this summer for Sofiane Feghouli this summer, and if so, if it has anything to do with Liverpool.
Thanks.

Noski

{Ed002's Note - I am aware of two clubs who have spoken with West Ham about Sofiane Feghouli but Liverpool moved on to Mane last season and seem satisfied with him.}


1.) 15 May 2017 12:14:30
I think satisfied would be an understatement ed.


2.) 15 May 2017 13:57:38
What makes you think he is good enough for us? Cannot even get into the West Ham first team.


3.) 15 May 2017 16:41:05
Neither could mascherano but he turned out alright (potential understatement) . Sometimes quality players don't suit the team / manager they play for, it doesn't affect their qualities and fit in other teams. I have no idea if feghouli is any good but if our scouts decide they want him I will support him, as with all players.


4.) 16 May 2017 19:09:46
Mascherano was a top class player playing for a numpty manager who didn't understand how to use him. Feghouli is a bang average player.


5.) 18 May 2017 18:42:20
That numpty manager named Alan Pardew, was the one who thought a highly-rated Mascherano from Argentina knocking on the door of the national team, was inferior to the great Hayden Mullins. There's a reason he is a woeful n=manager, out of a job, and bitter who has not gotten over LFC and SG snatching the FA Cup from in in 2006.


 

 

07 May 2017 11:30:23
Sorry Eds if this has been touched on before, but it was on a name on the Sharkopod so I thought I should ask. Is Liverpool really linked to Lukasz Teodorczyk? Who has watched him play? Is he any good? I read he's the new Lewandowski!
Thanks Ed.

Noski

{Ed002's Note - It is a different Merseyside based club who has shown a little interest.}

I only watched him on our national team, and he's average. He's behind Lewandowski and Milik in pecking order.


4.) 09 May 2017 14:08:08

I always thought lallana would make a decent captain. He's not very shouty but sets a good example and is intelligent. I reckon he might be their captain next year.

Eds, do you know if there's a relegation clause in his contract. Adam lallana is too good to play in 2nd division. He should be able to retire in the premier league I imagine. Its a really good signing for Brighton. And they play nice football. I quite like them actually and Potter sedms a good bloke.

{Ed002's Note - Lallana arrived at Liverpool to be Gerrard's replacement and captain. I have no idea what his contract says I am afraid.}

2.) 25 May 2020 21:30:30
Have you read Stephen Warnocks account of the final? Squad players sent in a different plane home so the players wives could fly which meant they got back later and missed the parade. Seems pretty poor. Ed, is this really what happened or is it being exaggerated?

{Ed001's Note - there was certainly a few who missed the parade, though I don't remember why off the top of my head.}


3.) 25 May 2020 22:37:44
It was in an article on the BBC site, seems very harsh by the club if true.

Warnock always bangs on about how he left his boyhood club as Rafa was being so mean to him.
My recollection was that he left coz he was never good enough to be our left back.


6.) 26 May 2020 18:44:32
According to Neil Mellor, the plane with the players who weren't involved actually landed at Liverpool before the plane with the first team (the 18 players, the wives and press) but it was waiting for their bags that held them up as obviously loads of fans were returning, Rafa and the team were waiting at Melwood but police advised them they couldn't wait any longer and the remaining players finally arrived about 15 minutes after the bus had left.


 

 

06 Apr 2020 09:51:19
I asked this question earlier, ED002, so please don't be upset if you already answered that.

Ed002, please a quick follow up question, re: FSG. Did they follow their Red Sox non-playing staff yet? Just curious if you don't mind.

You think there's nothing wrong with bidding low? Just wait until someone's trying to do the same to one of our players. Then suddenly, it will be the most unfair thing on earth!
Listen, I agree with you that you should always want to get the best price possible. But why does every man and his dog have to have know so much about this deal? Couldn't they have made a bid or multiple bids and be stealth about everything until the deal is really nearly done? Don't pretend you don't know how this kind of in-the-media transactions affect players and their clubs. You win the battle and act like you're the man, but you keep wrecking your reputation with other clubs and agents.

We seem to be playing our silly game again: get into the player's head, use our connections to the player (Trent and Robbo share the same agency with Jamal), leak our supposed interest to the media and create a "storm" and then make a ridiculously low bid hoping to force the selling club to accept our terms. Not so long ago, we cried foul when other bigger teams did that to us. I just find it distasteful. If you want the player, why not just get the deal done smoothly? I'm not endorsing paying over the top, but there were times when Liverpool could complete deals without a media frenzy or without making the selling club feel so little or bullied!

Not trying to get you to discuss numbers, Ed002, but at 250K a week for a 29 year old, wouldn't that make him the highest earner at Liverpool? Does any of the current players earn that much?

The No. 66 is unique to Trent and he still harbors a switch to midfield, so the No. 2 might not be needed when Trent is plastered over No. 66 like crazy!
