With Sky reporting that we are interested in Diego Jota is there a possibility that we could offer Hoover along with cash to acquire Jota, Ed's are you able to offer insight on this.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - No, Hoever is being sold. If subsequently Liverpool wish to drop interest in others and move to Jota that would be a separate matter. Obviously he would expect to be a starter rather than simply cover for Mane.}


1.) 18 Sep 2020 17:09:36
It seems there is real interest in Jota now Ed, I can’t see him starting over Mane however, good back up for him and Salah imo.


2.) 18 Sep 2020 17:27:10
Lots of games in a short span of time this season. Jota will get plenty of game time regardless. We need better rotation options than Origi and Shaq, so Jota definitely improves our squad.


3.) 18 Sep 2020 17:35:01
Or maybe he replaces one of the front three.


4.) 18 Sep 2020 17:39:21
Red67 if we suddenly splash the cash on a CB then that could be true.


5.) 18 Sep 2020 17:45:33
United dominated for years with 4 forwards.


6.) 18 Sep 2020 18:24:16
Jota can play as striker and number 10 as well so definitely gives us lots of options for rotation with Bobby, Sadio, Takumi. Especially with Brewster leaving I think it's the perfect addition and would leave us with perhaps a CB only left to sign.


7.) 18 Sep 2020 18:29:44
they obviously think he can replace mane/ mo longterm. 1 will go next season without a doubt.


8.) 18 Sep 2020 18:31:48
Absolutely Drogie and that was was when they were playing only 3 up front.
Not to mention Chelsea have 7 forwards.
I would be disappointed to see Brewster go though. I think he would have more to offer than Origi and Shaq in time.


9.) 18 Sep 2020 18:43:03
If we do get Jota, that's a great signing. He'll get plenty of game time. Look at Chelsea now, they have tammy/ werner Pulisic, Ziyech and Havertz, as well as Mount and Kovacic. We are finally getting top players to round out the entire squad. City have done it for years. I do think we may need to move on possibly Shaq and another MF, probably Gujic now (I'd prefer to keep him, but I think he's the most likely to be sold) . I also think this hints Brewster may very much be on the move soon.


10.) 18 Sep 2020 21:54:15
Maybe he just wants to win some trophies.


11.) 18 Sep 2020 22:09:51
There’s been talk of maybe going 4-2-3-1 at times.
A front 4 of Jota, Firmino, Mané and Salah is mouthwatering.
Games every 3/ 4 days also means there will be more rotation too as I believe Klopp has already indicated.


12.) 18 Sep 2020 16:50:34
Thanks for the quick reply, always appreciated.
Keep up the good work.


13.) 18 Sep 2020 16:52:33
Do you know which others we are looking at, I know that you probably have already covered this but I may of missed it.

{Ed002's Note - The likes of TRaore and Sarr who Klopp has been vocal about.}

Morning Ed's

Any updates on the situation with Brewster.

Sky are reporting that Palace and Sheffield United have held talks with the club

Just wondered if you have any news.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - That is correct as I understand matters.}


1.) 15 Sep 2020 15:59:30
It would be incredibly stupid of the club to sell Brewster!


2.) 15 Sep 2020 16:02:10
Sale or loan, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - The clubs want loans. Liverpool might want to sell to raise funds - but could easily price him out of a move as they have done with others.}


3.) 15 Sep 2020 17:47:17
I'd accept a loan, but a sale seems shortsighted. It's clear there's an urgent need to raise money, but there are other candidates like Shaqiri, Wilson and Karius that have neither a present nor a future with the club. Whatever financial crunch is hitting us is hitting other clubs also, so I don't understand the pricing out of a move strategy, either. There is no benefit to holding on to players over 3-5 years just for loaning purposes. Aside from Origi, I don't recall a single player who came back from a loan (s) and made it back into the squad.


4.) 15 Sep 2020 19:37:11
Sell with with a buy back clause is a win-win if you ask me.


5.) 15 Sep 2020 19:56:57
Ed why do out youngsters seem to not quite make it with us usually. I mean apart from a select few, I always read about them coming through the system and Brewster was deemed good enough for the top tier but now we are considering selling him to more than likely being in an oversees/ foreign player?

{Ed001's Note - because being good enough to make it is not the same as being good enough to make it with us.}


6.) 15 Sep 2020 20:37:15
Argh ok Ed, you no what I mean though mate. I really thought Brewster would get a shot this year.


 

 

11 Sep 2020 20:25:47
Evening Ed002

Hope you are well

The Echo this evening is reporting Liverpool are lining up a 23m bid for Doku, is this old news circulating again or could there be some truth in it.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - The interest dates from two years ago - he scored an international goal this week so perhaps something has suddenly happened - but it has passed me by I am afraid.}


1.) 11 Sep 2020 22:00:06
the Echo is only relaying what other journos have printed. it is under their "rumours" section.


 

 

04 Sep 2020 10:56:00
Morning Ed's

Rumours in the press today are saying Thiago could well stay at Bayern, if that was to be the case and Gini is sold, does Klopp or the scouts have other options that they could move for.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - If that were the case I would expect Grujic to stay.}


1.) 04 Sep 2020 12:03:40
if Gini goes and we don't sign Thiago we'll have to struggle through the season with the 8 midfielders we have in the first team! outrageous.

but seriously, we are well covered in numbers anyway. I get the point about style, quality etc. can't see how having an over-stocked is that helpful for us too.


2.) 04 Sep 2020 12:28:15
Could be because we aren't willing to pay a fee for someone who would be available for free next summer and Thiago is willing to wait?


3.) 04 Sep 2020 12:32:28
A midfield of Thiago, Henderson/ Keita and Fabinho retains the title for me,


4.) 04 Sep 2020 13:01:42
Rumour came from his interview saying that He’s happy in Munich.


5.) 04 Sep 2020 13:06:29
The rumours about Gini leaving for Barcelona and Thiago arriving really is dragging on now. Anyone think if it was going to happen then It would of done by now with the season starting in a weeks time.

If we don’t have the finances forThiago then I’m not sure why Klopp approached him in the first place.

If Grujic is staying then we best sort his WP out quick.


6.) 04 Sep 2020 13:14:26
Do you think we will be able to get a WP for Grujic if he was to stay.

{Ed002's Note - A case will need to be made and probably an apology given, so yes.}


7.) 04 Sep 2020 14:00:26
tbh I'd love to see Grujic be given a chance to stay with the first team.


8.) 04 Sep 2020 14:40:18
Of course Thiago said "he would be happy to stay". He has no option but to say something like that, when he's waiting for something to happen with any of the teams considering him to join. He's done his preliminary work in making it known which teams he's ready to join, now he has to sit tight and play the waiting game. If you accept that Liverpool is his preferred team (anyone remember how Werner kept saying he wanted to join Liverpool but ended up elsewhere? ), then the longer Liverpool take time to move for him, the closer he'll get closer to joining another team. But he has to keep all his options open. And that means staying another year at Bayern and getting that big signing on fee next summer. You never know.


9.) 04 Sep 2020 14:46:36
Everyone here knows by now i am Thiago's agent, i mean errr, biggest fan 👀

However i'd be reasonably happy if Keita and Grujic were given the opportunity to compete to replace Wijnaldum. Rumour is Grujic really wants to succeed at Liverpool which is an admirable stance from him and shows the right attitude.


10.) 04 Sep 2020 15:43:54
I don’t think it’d be a bad idea to give grujic until January and if it’s not working out by then go back after someone like Thiago if he was still available.


11.) 04 Sep 2020 17:27:34
Damn these pesky transfers that take longer than 20 minutes.


12.) 04 Sep 2020 18:59:59
Worst case scenario Gini leaves and Thiago doesn’t come in. That weakens us massively in my opinion, he’s an underrated player is Wijnaldum. Top top class.


13.) 04 Sep 2020 20:39:36
Not according to some of the "experts" on here he's not LiverpoolFC8.


14.) 05 Sep 2020 07:44:39
I can’t see Liverpool letting Gini go without a replacement lined up like Thiago. Gini player more minutes than anyone else in the squad last season bar Firmino, and while I rate Grujic we can’t afford to lose Gini’s experience in the toughest and biggest matches.


15.) 05 Sep 2020 09:29:01
I agree Gini is very important, but Virgil played the most minutes last season, followed by Robbo, Salah, Trent, Bobby, Sadio THEN Gini. Still most the midfield, but just wanted to correct that stat.


16.) 05 Sep 2020 10:14:37
I actually think Grujic wouldn’t be a bad option i feel like he deserved a shot - is younger and is well thought of. Hendo Milner fabinho all there for a calmer head and experience, and Grujic and Keita offer a little more going forward. If gini does want to leave, thank him for the memories and move forward.


17.) 05 Sep 2020 13:25:02
If Thiago isn't coming this season, surely it would make sense to just let Gini run his contract down.

In that scenario, next season Gini leaves of a free, Thiago joins on a free.


 

 

26 Aug 2020 09:52:10
Morning Ed's

I have just read a post the Sheffield United are holding talks regarding taking Brewster on Loan for next season.

With the current situation regarding strikers at the club do you see this happening

Divock clearly scores important goals for us but I believe Brewster will have more of an impact.

Does this move depend on Divock being sold or do you see Brewster getting a chance next season.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to make a decision whether to keep Brewster as part of the first team squad giving him reasonable and increasing game time or send him out on loan again. I would hope he gets a chance next season at Liverpool. His age means there is no dependency on sales.}


1.) 26 Aug 2020 10:55:03
Since we pulled out of the werner deal, most likely for a cheaper alternative, and if Div is sold, i would be happy for Brewster to goto the blades for a season to see what he's made of. Woodburn failed there for being a big time charlie and not fitting in with the work ethic. This would be a real test for Brewster, and if he can prove himself there with regular minutes, he will be ready for us.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 11:05:21
I don't trust loans. They're 50/ 50 at best.

Nketiah thought he had a good move to Leeds last season then couldn't get in ahead of Bamford. Went back to Arsenal and started getting more games ahead of Lacazette and Pepe.

Parent clubs always have the best interests of the player at heart. Loan clubs normally don't.


3.) 26 Aug 2020 11:06:24
I’m not sure where or how you’d see Brewster getting that sort of game time at Liverpool Ed?
He wouldn’t do so at any of the other top 4 sides also.

{Ed002's Note - I see no reason for Klopp not to use him as a striker and an option to any of the front three. If he won't do that then a sale makes sense. If there is no plan for the younger players they will look to leave.}


4.) 26 Aug 2020 11:07:37
Thanks for the reply Ed

I really hope he is given the chance as he looks to be in good form.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 12:25:01
It seems to be the right time to let Origi move on and for Brewster to try push himself to compete with the front three.

Origi has scored massive goals and will always be remembered but I would like to see Origi get the chance to play 30/ 35 games a season somewhere and see how many he can score / improve.


6.) 26 Aug 2020 12:27:20
Id put Brewster above Origi and the way Firmino has been playing for the last 6 months or so a few extra starts wouldn't be a surprise, the boys got the talent and the best coach to get that talent out of him.


7.) 26 Aug 2020 13:06:19
I'd keep Origi, I'd only loan him to a team if he wasn't going to be starting or at least start and play a full game every few weeks. He played well at Swansea and looked decent in the preseason, he's worth keeping and putting on. Look at United, all their strikers got injured and Greenwood stepped up. I'd love to see Brewster starting some games for us.


8.) 26 Aug 2020 13:11:33
We're facing a condensed season. The same number of games, the same number of competitions, but 5 weeks shorter than normal. That's 35 days shorter. The only way to make sure you don't tire out the starting XI is to use more of rotation, rest the starters once in a while, and keep maximum players fit and fresh. This is how Brewster, and all the others beyond the starting XI, will contribute. Klopp has already talked about this in a pressie, saying this was what he would do. Clearly the bench will get more chances than ina normal season.


9.) 26 Aug 2020 13:23:03
Simples, Brewster needs game time with us to develop. I had high hopes when Origi joined us being a good young upstart but its never quite worked out with us.

He now needs game time at a mid table club to show what he can do. Maybe send him on a season long loan if he is happy to do that?

Ings should have stayed, look at thr form he had at Southampton!


10.) 26 Aug 2020 16:20:53
as AA has mentioned, we have a condensed season, with no winter break,
this means more rotation, to keep everyone fit and happy,
Brewster would get game time,
and I think that he could go up to another level,
we have a great young player here, let's play him .


11.) 26 Aug 2020 17:58:27
Brewster needs to be playing no matter what. If Klopp wants to use him as a fourth choice striker behind Origi, he should go on loan, preferably to Leeds although Sheffield isn't the worst place he could end up. If we are moving Origi on it is a no brainer we need to play him. I personally would like to see Jones Brewster and Williams integrated into the team even at the cost of more senior figures at the club.


12.) 27 Aug 2020 04:34:30
Brewster is staying.

Morning Ed's

Just seen the story about Leeds in talks to sign Diego Llorente, I think he would be a great signing for them but I would of thought the likes of Liverpool, Man City and Even United would of made their move for him.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - He has been of interest to the likes of Liverpool but price is going to be an issue. This has been dealt with before.}


 

 

06 Sep 2020 08:47:29
Morning Ed's

I know there are no links but I justed wanted your thoughts, with Sarr being priced at 40m a player that Klopp rates and wants. With the situation regarding transfer funds being limited I was just wondering what your thoughts are on Benrahma. Plays on the left somewhere we lack cover for, 17 goals and 9 assists last year even thought that was in the Championship and could be half the price on Sarr.
Could turn into a quality player under Klopp.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in Benrahma and he is moving elsewhere. He is a well liked player and has a number of options. Obviously it is a big step up.}


1.) 06 Sep 2020 09:53:58
Redpathreds I would like Origi replaced in the squad as he is are main cover for the left and Think Sarr who normally plays on the right could swap over like Mane did after the first season. But what I see of Benrahma for Brentford no way would I want him to replace Origi I think he will struggle in the premier league very good Championship player and that's it for Benrahma for me.


2.) 06 Sep 2020 10:05:26
Thanks Ed you think he will end up at west ham.

{Ed002's Note - Right now he won't be joining WHU but if they suddenly have more funds they might be one of the clubs who make an offer.}


3.) 06 Sep 2020 10:42:32
Grino75

I agree that Divok should be replaced but it doesn't look like anyone is interested in him. Regarding Benrahma I have to disagree with you on that, I think he has the potential and could do well. Sarr signed only last year and if I am not mistaken in 28 games 5 goals 4 assists isn't great stats even though Watford struggled. I do believe we could find a player for less money than Sarr and it could turn out to be another bargain.


4.) 06 Sep 2020 14:21:01
SomethingRed in response to your point about how many midfielders we have, none of Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Milner have the same skill set.

Keita is far too indisciplined and blows hot and cold, not to mention that he gets injured getting out of bed.

Ox is too injury prone to be considered an automatic starter you can rely upon, notwithstanding that I don’t think he has the skill set to be a disciplined water carrier as Gini is.

Milner gives away too many cheap fouls and I don’t think he’s as good a footballer as Gini in centre midfield so there’s a massive drop off in quality and at 35 he’s not what you’d consider a long term option.

Jones is a talented lad, no question, but I see him more as an attacking midfielder like Lallana than a centre midfielder like Gini.

As for Grujic, it looks like the club have decided to sell, which is a shame as he looks a decent talent. So if Gini goes it will create a headache as he plays a specific way which suits Klopps system and I don’t see anyone with the same abilities in the squad, he’s almost the first name on the team sheet. The fact he’s been almost ever present since signing is testament to that.


 

 

01 Sep 2020 11:55:32
Ed's

Hope you are well, just a quick one regarding transfers.
Obviously reports are linking us with Thiago and we need to sell before buy, although I do rate Thiago I just think that there are better players out there who are younger.
Out of players available on a free is there any of interest to Klopp.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - No, I don't think so. He has always had the Klopps for Mario Goetze, but he is heading elsewhere.}

Evening Ed's,

A quick question for any of the Ed's

FSG has stated for s while that they would welcome invested into the club and the Echo are reporting that Billy Beane is considering investing in the club.

Is there any truth in this or is this just the papers writing rubbish again.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - See previous answers but keep in mind if he were to buy £500M worth of equity in the club that goes to FSG and not the transfer budget.}


1.) 24 Aug 2020 21:30:16
Thanks for the distinction, Ed02. It seems fans automatically think any influx of cash goes to transfers for some funny reason.


2.) 24 Aug 2020 21:21:17
Is Billy Beane even wealthy? I mean football club investment wealthy?

{Ed002's Note - It is not his money - it is investor’s money.}


3.) 24 Aug 2020 22:19:03
Thanks Ed 👍.


 

 

14 Aug 2020 11:48:25
Question for any of the Ed's, there are conflicting stories regarding Tiago. German Newspaper Bild are stating that we have opened talks regarding a deal while Sky and the Echo ard clearly stating that we have not opened talks and have no intention of doing so.
What is your take on this situation and how it will finish up.

Redpathreds

{Ed002's Note - This has been answered - read the posts.}


1.) 14 Aug 2020 12:33:03
Thanks for the reply.


2.) 14 Aug 2020 13:13:54
It has been answered but differently, hence the confusion.


3.) 14 Aug 2020 13:20:22
If Klopp were to ring Thiago and discuss the weather, the price of sauerkraut and such, that can’t be against any rules, surely?

I kind of have to agree with Ed's there Y2K3 but I myself isn't overly convince by Sarr and Thiago.
For example Sarr 6 goals in 30 in a poor Watford team and the 40m quoted I believe we would be able to find better and cheaper to come in. As for Thiago he is a quality player when fit but for a player of 29 year and a price of 25m-32m again I believe there are better options out there at a younger age who will have a resalable value.
