Ed’s during the jan window you mentioned that we might be bringing in Isak Johannesson, do we still hold interest?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - I didn’t say that - I said he was one of the players the club has looked at. There are a lot of clubs keen on him and I think a move to Liverpool is unlikely.}


1.) 25 Mar 2021 23:01:29
Lazy posting.


2.) 26 Mar 2021 05:49:58
Lazy posting? I assume this has been wrongly placed in the thread?


3.) 26 Mar 2021 21:46:20
Lazy posting was not my intent, I couldn’t find the original note from Ed, I thought we had said we had looked at him as an option in jan.

Apologies Ed for the mis information.


4.) 26 Mar 2021 22:37:48
Southern red, wasn’t lazy posting imo. It was a valid question in trying bro find out about a player. Nothing wrong with that pal 👍.


 

 

30 Jan 2021 18:18:34
I reckon we are trying to move Adrian this window so we can open up a non HG space for a CB, diop looking likely.

The Southern Red

 

 

28 Dec 2020 11:59:20
Ed’s you mentioned we were interested in ísak bergmann jóhannesson, could this be something we would look to complete in jan? I know you mentioned he could be home grown.

Also didn’t know that his dad was Gudjohnson!

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Potentially. Yes, the sun of Joey - hence the Burnley interest.}


1.) 28 Dec 2020 14:09:22
Makes sense thanks ed, he looks a decent prospect and as you’ve said could be HG which is something we need to address!


2.) 29 Dec 2020 07:13:03
What position does he play?

{Ed002's Note - Isak Bergmann Johannesson is versatile and can play CM/AM/W). He would likely not to be so versatile if he were to move to England. Iam aware he has been watched by Odense and Burnley on several occasions. Manchester United, Oostende, Liverpool and Brann have had scouts at games recently. The Burnley link will be because of his father.}


 

 

23 Dec 2020 19:09:05
Looks like we are signing a 16 year old from Celta Vigo, I thought after last summer we couldn’t sign anyone under 18 from abroad?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Any deal needs to be completed this month.}


1.) 23 Dec 2020 22:14:14
thanks ed, are you expecting to see a flurry of last minute deals for youth players from abroad?

i know the likes of chelsea, city and united stockpiled foreign youth this summer.


2.) 24 Dec 2020 08:08:13
Any interest in Balogun Eds? Few reports saying we may be interested and seems he could be an option to replace Origi and Shaq.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}


 

 

22 Dec 2020 11:29:12
Any truth in the rumours of Michael Olise? Seems like a decent young player!

Do we know why Kostas Tsimikas is just not getting a sniff at game time? Is it because he’s not applying himself in training?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Kostas Tsimikas (LWB) The move to Liverpool has not worked out to be an easy transition for the player and we kow that talks have been held between his agent and Napoli, Olympiakos and Panathinaikos. I am not aware of any offers and the price could be a major problem for the Greek clubs. We will see what happens in the summer.}


1.) 08 Apr 2021 10:48:18
Shame. Looked a promising prospect when we got him.


2.) 08 Apr 2021 11:05:17
In my opinion we should move Tsimikas on and promote Owen Beck to the first team for next season. He's the first choice left back in the U23's team and is well ahead of the likes of Gallacher, Arroyo and Larouci. Tsimikas hasn't really done much wrong but it is a waste of a non-homegrown squad place. Beck is really attack minded like Robbo, Trent, Williams etc. So he suits the system we play also.


3.) 08 Apr 2021 10:52:53
Thanks Ed, seemed to be a great fit when we brought him, bar being another non HG player, shame it's not worked out.

hopefully can move on and get back to playing and enjoying his football again!

guess we can go back to looking for another LB to help cover!

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have a very good option in Larouci who will become Club Developed which is important - but they are likely going to let him go. I would anticipate that they will look to keep Tsamikas as they do not want to be looking for a LB.}


4.) 08 Apr 2021 13:02:12
Ed02, I hope we keep him cos injuries and CV have not helped him esp during such a crazy season. Only time will tell.


5.) 08 Apr 2021 13:58:23
I'd keep Kostas for another season. He's been unfortunate with the timing of his injury and of course the injuries to the CBs. If we didn't currently have form issues all over the pitch he would be getting regular minutes by now. Robbo is desperately in need of a rest and the kid Kostas has all the attributes to compete there.


6.) 08 Apr 2021 14:48:44
Larouci seem's to of fallen off a cliff! is he just waiting for his contract to run out? wasn't it a lost cause even to keep him before as he wanted to play regularly and not at LB.

i haven't even seen him really playing at youth level, hopefully the lad can get his career back on track.

{Ed002's Note - He is certainly out of favour.}


 

 

30 Mar 2021 09:44:23
another interview with Salah hinting of his desire to play in spain, a bit of wishful thinking from him or maybe there is no smoke without fire.

i can't see Barcelona or Real Madrid being able to afford him or have him as their top priority but we shall see.

The Southern Red

1.) 30 Mar 2021 11:31:25
My worry with the possibility of Salah leaving is if we replace him with someone like Adama from wolves that’s a lot of goals we are losing unless. Guess that’ll be the concern whoever arrives tho just can’t see Adama ever hitting the 30 per season Salah pretty much guarantees every year.

But this is football players leave if we get good deal for him he’s helped win a premier league and champions league he leaves on a good note in lfc history.


2.) 30 Mar 2021 12:04:48
I don't see madrid getting both haaland and mbappe. I don't think th3y can manage even one.
And since hazard has had a horrid time too they will might be tempted to bid for salah or mane. They 100 percent need players. And so do barcelona who will be clearing a lot of players
Salah mane could well be second or third choice for both spanish clubs.


3.) 30 Mar 2021 12:07:45
The very idea of signing ADAMA gives me nightmares.
He will be lucky to retire on 30 career goals nevermind scoring 30 in 1 season.
Totally agree with your last paragraph though and as well as the goals, Salah has been everything Suarez was not, image wise and the way he has conducted himself on and off the pitch.
One of liverpool's best ever signings imo.


4.) 30 Mar 2021 12:11:53
If salah doesn’t want to play for us then sell him simple as that. I only want players who are fully committed.


5.) 30 Mar 2021 12:32:23
he did not say he wants to go he said its not up to him and does not want to talk about it then asked if he would like to play in Spain one day he said he had played in Italy and England and hopes to play for many more years so maybe one day.


6.) 30 Mar 2021 13:31:54
OP, slow news day, man. I wouldn't sweat it. Salah answers these same questions the very same way every time and what has happened? Nothing. Also, Salah has been giving interviews to Spanish outlets for 2 years now about this very same topic and what has happened? Nothing.

People need to chill out and stop taking the bait EVERY time. Salah is going nowhere cos NOBODY can afford him and neither RM nor Barcelona are even interested in him, as far as we know. It is inter'l week so the journos are bored hence, are quick to spin things out of control to get clicks and it has worked. Not bothered, really.


7.) 30 Mar 2021 13:58:15
Plus, he's basically saying the same thing Wijnaldum has been saying all along; "it's up to the club". Meaning if the club gives him what he wants and thinks he deserves, he'd love to stay. Maybe Salah has an idea as to what he's worth and is hoping the club agrees to it too? And if that is so, how and why is that such a bad situation between employee and employer?


8.) 30 Mar 2021 17:37:39
I think the mane thing is that Traore would be a catastrophically bad replacement for Salah, in a million years we should not entertain that, he is so bad he makes Jesse Lingard look like a footballer, and that takes some doing, and if Madrid or Barcelona come without over £150m in cash up front or try offering their useless cast offs and unwanted failed signings (like Dembele, Griezmann, Isco, Assensio any other of their footballing detritus) the answer should be a resounding no.


9.) 30 Mar 2021 18:42:16
If the Salah left and Adama came in, he wouldn't be a direct replacement for Salah. Very few could fill those boots.
It would be because Klopp feels he can do a job in the front 3 that will give us an advantage.
Klopp is open about his admiration for Adama, whether that means he would sign him is a different matter.
But I have faith in Klopp. I remember people's reactions when we signed the likes of Wijnaldum, Robertson and others.
The same players who are currently Premiership champions despite being written off as not good enough by many before they'd even kicked a ball for the club.


10.) 30 Mar 2021 19:54:58
Thing is Flash, aside from Salah where are the goals coming from as there are very very few in our team at the moment and taking out Salah and bringing in Traore means even less. Traire literally has no end product. Bullying fullbacks is all well and good, but with nothing on the end of it is just pointless. He’s no better than Jesse Lingard, and he’s widely accepted as being rather Crap.


11.) 30 Mar 2021 20:38:59
Stop taking the bait and giving yourselves heartburn over a dead issue. If Salah really wanted to go, he would have kicked up a fuss already and forced the move, period. I’m starting to wonder if Salah enjoys these types of interviews where he drops fake feelers about a move and the media run with it and like clock work, our fans start sweating literally for no apparent reason.

Nothing has happened and nothing will happen regarding his departure for reasons we all know about yet people keep panicking over pointless comments the guy makes every time he is away with Egypt.

As for Adama coming in, yeah I’ll believe that rubbish when it happens. I won’t be holding my breathe, tho.


12.) 30 Mar 2021 23:24:20
6Times in some respects I'm inclined to agree with you.
But Klopp has a proven track record of taking potential and turning into something a bit special.
If he wants rather than just likes Adama, it's because he believes he can help him step up to another level.
And as for goals, it's only a matter of time before Mane kicks into gear again and Jota certainly knows where the goal is. We need more goals from around the team in general though, that's for sure.


 

 

21 Mar 2021 11:57:19
all this talk of CB’s either to replace Gomez or Matip, what would you actually want to see happen for next season? Given the current options and funding.

We have VVD, Gomez, Matip, Kabak, Phillips and Davies how do you think we should line up next year.

The Southern Red

1.) 21 Mar 2021 12:23:38
I have no problems keeping any of those players if the club believes they are good enough. This season has proved though that you need at least 4 quality cb’s. There are now question marks against all those players on the list and that is a massive potential problem. We will definitely has to buy at least one top quality addition, preferably one who isn’t injury prone.


2.) 21 Mar 2021 13:02:22
Matip has to be moved no matter what else happens as he is just taking space and wages up. Kabak and Davies are still unknowns.


3.) 21 Mar 2021 13:05:15
Vvd might nvr be the same or Gomez as for matip!
We need to solid cbs non injury prone and like what mark08 says!
We can’t go into the season again with 3 potential injury prone players We’ve learnt a lot this season.


4.) 21 Mar 2021 13:52:35
Well Klopp seems to want a starter to start alongside VVD.
So VVD and the new one are starters.
Gomez is third choice.
Then I would keep Phillips as fourth.
Then keep Davies or Matip as 5th. Depends on who impresses and who can be sold.
I wouldn’t keep Kabak.


5.) 21 Mar 2021 14:25:01
If your car kept breaking down would you keep it? Neither would I and that’s why matip has to go because he’s too unreliable!

Gomez is different, he’s suffered serious injuries and that’s why I’d be prepared to give him time.
Vvd might never rediscover his best form but he’s an animal so wouldn’t write him off just yet either.

I’d keep vvd, Gomez, Phillips and Davies (can’t comment on him until we see him play) kabak needs to prove himself and if he doesn’t we need to sign someone who pushes for a place.


6.) 21 Mar 2021 14:43:57
It may make sense for matip to go but for it to happen we need a buyer. Which I think would be unlikely with his injury record.


7.) 21 Mar 2021 15:48:06
WYred, at the right price, there’ll be a taker.


8.) 21 Mar 2021 17:47:26
A new centre back bought. Joe gomez to play right full and move Trent further forward.


9.) 21 Mar 2021 19:21:26
Gomez isn't a full back, personally I'd keep trent there. Yes he may be able to play in midfield but I'd be more confident in getting another quality midfielder in then a new RB to fill TAA's void (who grows up wanting to be a full back? ) . Keep trent there and maybe move him when he can't be bombing up and down the pitch a few years down the line.

{Ed077's Note - I agree. We dont know how good Trent will be in midfield but we have seen him be the best RB in the world when in form. I would only play him in midfield if he doesnt want to play RB anymore. Or in major injury crisis in midfield.}


10.) 21 Mar 2021 19:57:31
Jimmy, we already played Gomez at FB. It dies not work do why would we do that again? Also, this whole moving TAA into midfield makes no sense to me. The kid headmasters the RB role the way Klopp plays it to the point of being voted the best RB in the planet so why move him into a position he will have to literally relearn again?

Is that cos he is struggling for form? If that is the case then what would moving him in midfield accomplish or did it not occur to you that he would struggle there too while learning the position?

As for CB, Kabak and Phillips are pretty much auditioning for a spot in the squad so we shall see. I think it will all depend on how VVD and Gomez come back from their injuries and if Matip can b moved on. If a starter cannot be signed then we will have to go with what we have with Kabak or Phillips, Davies, VVD and Gomez.


11.) 21 Mar 2021 22:12:14
Ideal scenario is van Dijk, Kounde, Gomez, Phillips in that order.

Anyone calling for trent to be put in midfield needs to sort their head out.


12.) 21 Mar 2021 23:38:45
My one concern is that Konate is brought in to replace Gomez and Matip is sold. The issue is that Konate has a history of a longer combined "out injured" period than even Matip over the last few years. So we're exchanging our injury prone No.3 CB for an injury prone No.2 CB. How else do you explain that Upamecano has gone for around 43 Million and yet Konate could be available for around half of that? And many people have said Konate is the better player.

{Ed0666's Note - Konate is not available for half the fee upamacano went for. But you right in saying he’s injury prone as he’s only played 60 odd matches in the past three seasons. One to probably avoid. But an injury free konate is bordering on world class.

Do we know who the target is on loan on top of Davies?

The Southern Red

1.) 31 Jan 2021 21:35:30
Aaron Long - USA captain. On loan until Apr when MLS is due to restart.


 

 

18 Jan 2021 17:11:39
What are peoples thoughts of moving Gini into the number 6 role and having Thiago further forward?

The Southern Red

1.) 18 Jan 2021 17:20:37
Gini wants out so maybe time to start phasing him
Out! Not that I’d want that I love gini but I think that’s what could happen!


2.) 18 Jan 2021 23:23:29
If we’ve got him till the summer seems a waste to phase him out especially given our midfielders are having to play defence.

{Ed0666's Note - we need to move Thiago further up the pitch so he can dictate play more. That will only happen when Fab plays his natural role.

what is the reason for Klopp wanting to get a starter, does he just not see Gomez as being good enough?

surely we need to be addressing the HG issue and dropping Gomez for an international player.
