According to very reliable Mohamed Bouhafsi,
"Klopp wanted Pépé. The interest was genuine and high. In any case, Lille President Lopez officially confirmed discussions with Liverpool. But, I don’t know why things didn’t go further.

Mane and salah stayed.


2.) 29 Jul 2019 20:06:48
OP, The Ed's already said at the time that we were interested in Pepe so no news there, bro.

Harvey Elliott, the youngest player ever to feature in the Premier League, is to join Liverpool this summer. [Telegraph].

Clyde kindly mentioned this a few days ago.

From what he says he is a Liverpool fan and is very excited to get started!


2.) 08 Jul 2019 13:34:49
Looks a cracking little player needs a few bowls of scouse an some klopp magic dust sprinkled on him, might have another little gem .


3.) 08 Jul 2019 17:54:10
Klopp won't be Liverpool manager by the time he's ready for first team football, bags of potential but still only a kid.


4.) 08 Jul 2019 18:01:42
I am worried, who will be manager?


5.) 08 Jul 2019 19:54:14
Big sam.


6.) 08 Jul 2019 21:41:38
Samuel Tarly?


7.) 09 Jul 2019 03:00:55
From the house Tarly? Nope. Rather will have Tyrion/ Sansa.


8.) 09 Jul 2019 12:19:27
We signed Ki-Jana Hoever at 16 and he's already featured under Klopp, albeit just one game as sub. What makes you think that Elliott wouldn't? If he's good enough, he'll get the odd cameo.

Liverpool set to complete signing of defender Sepp van den Berg, with a medical to take place today. Reds look to have seen off strong late interest from Bayern Munich for the 17 year old, whose preference was to move to Anfield. [Neil Jones].

1.) 26 Jun 2019 20:45:40
He sounds an exciting prospect. Hoping not another Kippe.


2.) 27 Jun 2019 09:28:31
Forde Kippe that name strikes fear into many Liverpool fan's but not in a good way.


3.) 27 Jun 2019 10:07:19
He has been confirmed by Liverpool now.


4.) 27 Jun 2019 10:10:00
This is a great signing. He choose Liverpool or several other big teams. He may not be a name everyone knows, yet, he may not have cost tens of millions but don't be surprised if he gets time on the bench and even minuets on the pitch in domestic cups and the odd leauge game. This lad is talented now he has a chance to show how much.


5.) 27 Jun 2019 10:47:59
Apparently LFC see a lot of Gomez in him at the same age, hope he can kick on like Gomez without the injuries - potentially another great signing.


6.) 27 Jun 2019 12:01:45
Don't understand the move?
We have Gomez, lovren, Matip, all fighting for 2nd CB position, with Youngens like Hoever who performed well, surely Hoever would be ahead in the pecking order after how well he played?


7.) 27 Jun 2019 12:22:12
Matip is 27 and Lovren is 29 in 5 years time Sepp will be 22 do the maths. He could be a potential CB for very little money!


8.) 27 Jun 2019 12:24:30
What? Hoever has played 88 mins of senior football, he's just a kid who's proved nothing at all so far. Van den berg is just 17 too, he became the youngest ever player to reach 10 games in eredivise, . For 1.5 possibly 4 million how does this move not make sense. He might be great he might flop, same as Hoever. But they're 17 years old, players for the future.

{Ed002's Note - He is another schoolboy or will only be allowed to train a limited number of hours.}


9.) 27 Jun 2019 12:43:10
is Hoever not a right back so with them 2 and Gomez if they are to get to the first team. They could be 3 of are back 4 for years to come.


10.) 27 Jun 2019 13:35:50
Think you're right Grino, Hoever's seen more as a right back, played CB in the cup game after Lovren (I think) got injured.

For a CB to get 20 first team games at the age of 17, there must be something about him, as it's not normally a position really young players get regular football.

I'd loan him out for a season. to Killie.


11.) 27 Jun 2019 14:24:36
Ed, what are the restrictions on training for U18s and is there a requirement for them to stay in education until they are 18?

Also, thinking about the other issue we have discussed, at what stage do they need a T2 or T3 work permit? As in, are youth players given extra leeway to obtain the relevant experience and knowledge required?

{Ed002's Note - There is no point in opening all of this up. It will simply lead to the Liverpool suppoirters looking for ways for the club to cheat.}


12.) 27 Jun 2019 14:42:51
Don't know the kid but I'd imagine he'd pass the English test anyway.

{Ed001's Note - he will have to have learnt English at school, to a level higher than most schools in England require.}


13.) 27 Jun 2019 14:40:51
Hahaha ok, I sense its a contentious issue.

Well Id hope these lads have a decent grasp of the language as its taught in most European schools from an early age and if not, the time spent with tutors here while in education brings them up to the required standard quickly to at least check that off the list.

{Ed002's Note - He is from a country where he will have been taught perfectly good English it won't be an issue.}


14.) 27 Jun 2019 16:21:10
Watch his interview, his English is top notch.


15.) 27 Jun 2019 16:20:42
ed002 I keep reading that he will have a chance to train with the first team and be offered a path into the first team. However isn't he under 18 and won't be required to complete his education until he is older than 18.

{Ed002's Note - Well if Liverpool have him training full time and are not meeting his educational needs then they will be well and truly screwed. Maybe Liverpool are above the rules that they have signed up to?}


16.) 27 Jun 2019 19:25:01
How many hours per day of school does he have to do Ed? Is it the same as a normal 17 year old and train in the evening? I seem to remember a couple of years back a club having to get permission from a school for a pupil to travel to an away game.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, it is the same as is required for other CHILDREN.}


17.) 27 Jun 2019 21:04:53
Scandinavian schools teach English to a pretty decent level, in fact a lot of foreign students have a better grasp of the English language than some youngster here. They are taught grammar in a lot more depth making it easier for foreign students to learn a new language.


18.) 27 Jun 2019 21:29:49
You realise ofcourse that Holland is not in Scandinavia, Drogie?


19.) 27 Jun 2019 21:50:59
I have to agree with ed002 we are very ignorant as a country to other languages. Kids in places like Spain etc start learning English in primary school whereas we learn it for what 4 or 5 years at high school and its very basic

Was on holiday recently in a resort that was predominately French, Spanish and German. My young daughter loves player with other kids and all conversations we had with their parents had to be in English as I couldnt understand a word. Felt very ignorant because of it.


20.) 27 Jun 2019 22:22:15
I do.
The Benelux regional counties also speak good English, I referenced Scandinavia as I worked for a Swedish country for 8 years and their second language at school wa English.


21.) 28 Jun 2019 09:28:27
I lived in Amsterdam for 7 years and the number 1 reason why the Dutch speak good English is because about 70% of their TV is in English. For a small country they do not have enough resources to produce 100% TV and they watch the usual stuff watched everywhere such as X Files, Simpsons, Suits etc - you even get BBC1 and BBC2 for free in the Netherlands. Remember the Dutch gave us Big Brother.

{Ed001's Note - yes and that means we can never forgive them.}


22.) 28 Jun 2019 10:30:36
Quite Right Ed001 - There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch. (thank you Austin Powers 3 - Goldmenber)


23.) 29 Jun 2019 00:17:00
Thought you left school at 16? I did.


 

 

25 Jun 2019 18:47:22
According to Melissa Reddy,

Adam Lallana has been told his versatility is needed next season.

One Eyed Monster

{Ed002's Note - Right - no effort is being made to sell Lallana or other senior players at this time.}


1.) 25 Jun 2019 19:10:19
Bench seat 1, bench seat 2, bench seat 3, bench seat 4, bench seat 5, bench seat 6, bench seat 7.

Arguably the most versatile player in our squad!


2.) 25 Jun 2019 19:57:02
TheRedKop, slightly ironic coming from arguably most versatile poster on this site!


3.) 25 Jun 2019 18:59:04
Thanks for the confirmation, Ed002.


4.) 25 Jun 2019 19:54:56
Hello ED002. With your knowledge within the footballing world, do you think its a wise choice Klopp and LFC seem to be taking, not investing in the squad and not looking to move on fringe players if possible like Lallana?
I understood it that the best time to improve is when on top, being most attractive at that point and not investing is standing still.

Whats your opinion on this situation?

{Ed002's Note - The half a billion pounds that many supporters expect to be spent on adding depth to the squad is what I am trying to fight against at all times. The club will look to improve a little where they can and are seemingly more than happy to move on many of the youngsters. But if senior players are to be added then players in the squad need to be moved on. As I have said, I do expect a versatile attacking player to be a target and I expect cover to be provided elsewhere.}


5.) 25 Jun 2019 20:22:15
Thanks ED. I dont disagree with your way of thinking about spending for the sake. I also think what we have was enough to have the season we had. Add Ox and hopefully a fitter Gomez and more settled Keita alongside any promoted young stars and should compete again. But I dont really know enough about the workings of football. I trust Klopp and Edwards.
Did UTD or now City ever just try and go again with the same squad? Or just one additional starter coming in when theyre on top?

Which is the best way forward. Spurs did amazing without adding but ended with nothing to show? Tough call. Glad I dont have to make it.

{Ed002's Note - You make a good point about JG and AOC - they will be like two new players.}


6.) 25 Jun 2019 21:34:52
As well as JG, AOC, Fabs and Keita will both improve next season. I can also see Trent being even better and Firmino will have a better season. There is much growth and improvement from within. Just 2 senior players needed.


7.) 25 Jun 2019 22:13:23
Mellisa Reddy is very reliable. If she told me my wife was cheating on me, I would file for dirvore based on that alone.

{Ed025's Note - shes hit and miss....sometimes she will do the dishes and other times she wont.. :)


8.) 25 Jun 2019 23:03:31
Melissa reddy would get a game in my team any day " nudge nudge wink wink" sexy little minx that is .


9.) 26 Jun 2019 00:52:19
Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more, say no more. Bit of a goer is she? Well, yes, she does go. Bit of a sport? Yes, she like sport.
So, you've had sex then have you? Well, yes.
What's it like?

Sorry, for python fans.


10.) 26 Jun 2019 04:23:05
E002, long winded question/ observation here. With City virtually (or the legends being) having 2 quality players for each position, and players seemingly having no problems moving to them knowing this, one of the arguments against Liverpool continuing to invest heavy is that no quality player is going to move to Liverpool to sit on the bench for prolonged periods. While i'm not in the camp of spend, spend, spend, I'm failing to see why to this regard City would be seen as the more attractive option (knowing you may be benched for periods) than Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the answer to this repeatedly. Manchester City has a lot of players who are not content. Liverpool supporters are jealous and obsess about Manchester City players and have no grasp of reality with the expectation that Mbappe will move to sit on the bench. It is pointless me explaining the same thing over and over again.}


11.) 26 Jun 2019 08:41:45
Gomez will have his work cut out for him. Matip was immense last season. I don't think people realise how good he actually is.


12.) 26 Jun 2019 13:35:33
Clubs, in general, only actively try to sell senior players if they serve absolutely no purpose in the squad (a third choice left back, for example) . Lallana could feature in 15-20 games next season, whether starting or off the bench, so he serves a purpose to the squad.

It doesn't mean a bid won't be considered if it is made, just means he's not being transfer listed or hawked around other clubs.

If Lallana's not happy with his squad place, i'm sure his agent will try to encourage bids.

I love the Football Manager games, but I feel it has played a huge part in supporters wanting to replace all the squad players with people they consider slightly better every season.


13.) 26 Jun 2019 09:35:51
Can we have less of the sexist chat please. Its 2019 . Dishes jokes? Really?

{Ed025's Note - your probably right HB, i never grew up in the PC correct world where jokes were outlawed by the snowflakes of today mate, chalk boards were blackboards and inspection chambers were manholes etc and we just got on with life..


14.) 26 Jun 2019 20:14:41
Forgive my agricultural behaviour, It was a compliment, just presented in wrong way, i find her quite attractive ????.


15.) 26 Jun 2019 20:11:09
And tissues were man size Ed025. Thankfully I also grew up at a time when you could speak without fear of offending someone.

{Ed025's Note - its gone ridiculous now irish, people are afraid to open their mouths in case the precious public take umbrage mate...as piers mogan would say...."the worlds gone nuts"..


16.) 27 Jun 2019 03:42:45
There was an Englishman, Scot and an Irishman sat at a bar . having a beer and discussing the importance of VAR in today's modern game . nothing wrong with that.


17.) 26 Jun 2019 23:39:33
You're better than quoting that phone-tapping worm Ed.

{Ed025's Note - its the only thing i would quote of his rosie, a vile man and an egotistical maniac and intellectual bully..


18.) 27 Jun 2019 23:59:36
Are you actually serious ???????????? oh my god, youre objectifying a woman breaking the mould in journalism as a woman in a mans world by making it about her looks, and making jokes about women in the kitchen just isnt ok. Sort it out, get your heads out your arses.


 

 

19 Jun 2019 22:27:41
Liverpool won’t consider another Championship loan deal for Wilson.
Wilson will be assessed in pre-season before Jurgen Klopp makes any final decision on his future.

One Eyed Monster

1.) 20 Jun 2019 11:04:00
I think we are currently pricing him out of a move anywhere at the moment! He had a decent season at derby but the goal return doesn’t reflect his overall output for the team.

I do hope he proves us all wrong but I have a feeling he isn’t quite ready or up to the standard we are wanting.


2.) 24 Jun 2019 20:08:41
Ed02 has said Wilson will prolly be sold.

{Ed001's Note - and he is right, the club have been offering him around for sale.}

Some fans argue that:
1. We don't need any 1st team signing. Ox and Keita are like 'new signings'.
My concern: Ox injury history is really scary.
In 13-14: Missed 34 games
In 14-15: Missed 20 games
In 15-16: Missed 19 games
Missed the entire 18-19 season.

No doubt on his ability, but he's injury prone.

2. "There is no room for any first team player. We don't need an unhappy player. Look at Sane at Man City. "
My Opinion: What's the big deal, if Sane is unhappy or wants to leave? They have won back to back premier league with that unhappy player. Winning the league - that's the big deal in my opinion.

This squad will not be together forever. It’s a brilliant XI. Why not fight to win every competition? Why not strengthen from a position of strength? No one knows if we will able to keep the core next year. Life happens. Hope this window is not a missed opportunity.
