Hello Ed002, it's been a while. I hope you are doing well. I listened to the Liverpool related Sharkopod, but it has been a while since then and I was wondering if you can maybe do another one the players LFC are looking at? If a pod is too much of trouble now, I and others would be pretty thrilled to hear about them on a post.

Thanks!

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I will be doing some further Sharkopods soon. Keep in mind that there was also the Klopp interview in one of the Final Day Shapkods as well p may get himback in to do another.}

Liverpool have a representative at the Atletico Paranaense international U17 tournament in which Paranaense U17 team along with U17 teams of Uruguay, Orlando City and India are participating.

Clubs have scouts everywhere. Nothing new.

I know club scouts many tournaments, not necessarily with an intent to buy immediately.

I will make sure I won't post again if I hear something.

Hello Ed002, it's been a while. I hope you are doing well.

Seeing as you are around, I was wondering if you know of any Liverpool interest in Schalke's Sead Kolasinic? I remember there was some talk of the player last summer, but I think you mentioned that the player said he has no interest in a move to Liverpool. Seeing as he is out of contract in the summer, are you aware of any attempts from Liverpool to perhaps get the player on a pre-contract?

Additionally, with Sakho and Ilori expected to leave this January, and the likes of Lloyd Jones Maguire, Randall and perhaps Lucas all expected to leave in the summer, and with young Joe Gomez still being carefully introduced back into first team training following his injury, do you know of any centre backs Liverpool are keeping an eye out for?

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I am doing fine thanks. Previously of interest to Manchester United and Spurs, Roma, West Brom and Manchester City enquired after Schalke's Sead Kolasinac in the summer but the enquiries went nowhere. Wolfsburg, Chelsea and Liverpool also had watched toward the end of last season. West Ham and RBL have had him watched this season. Wolfsburg remain unclear on the future of Ricardo Rodriguez still and may turn again to the player if Schalke cannot agree and extension.

None of the centre backs you mention are part of the plans right now so I would expect Klopp to stick with what he has - which is four first team picks including Gomez and discounting Sakho. If he looks to another then they will be taking the position of someone who is not a likely starter at the club. If he brings in a potential first team starter then it would be the end for Gomez.}


1.) 06 Nov 2016 13:35:51
If say, Sule came in and Sakho and Klavan left in d summer leaving us with Matip, Sule, Lovren and Gomez as our 1st choice centre halfs do you still think it would spell the end of Gomez?


2.) 07 Nov 2016 10:48:26
Has anyone watched much of Süle?
I've seen a few matches and I'm not impressed.
Could someone please answer - what does he offer that Gomez doesn't?


3.) 07 Nov 2016 13:03:59
Whats wrong with having both of them?, could be one of the top partnerships in Europe in a few years.


4.) 07 Nov 2016 12:36:05
Ron, Sule is a Left sided centre back so he wouldn't be challenging Gomez for the position as Gomez would play on the right side. Sule is absolutely huge, his aerial ability is something that we need in our side. He's a real footballer too, his passing is incisive and penetrates the oppositions midfield line. He's also a great tackler and he reads the game very well which masks his one weakness his pace. I'd rather Van Dijk but I'd also be delighted with Sule.

Saw Sule play at the Olympics and he is a beast of a player, with very good aerial, passing, tackling and technical ability. Not saying he will sign but he's worth a shout and a much better upgrade than Van Dyke, who only looks like a good CB but when you watch him play, he's not much to write home about.

Serbian media are reporting that LFC representatives met with Marko Grujic yesterday. Do you know anything about this Ed002?

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - I think it extremely unlikely that Liverpool has been given permission to talk to the player.

Red Star Belgrade DM Marko Grujic's move to either Chelsea or Inter was scheduled to happen in January, but it is now unlikely that he will move before the summer. There is also interest from Napoli, Hamburg,Wolfsburg, PSG, Manchester United, Everton, Manchester City and Roma but both Inter and Chelsea looking to an early deal - Chelsea have already held discussions with Red Star and have made an offer that was not deemed acceptable. Inter have now also held discussions but would need to better the offer from Chelsea - which might be problematic for them in the short term as there focus is elsewhere and money is an issue. The club and the player will look to hold out until the summer for his preferred move to Italy if necessary - but I understand he is coming around to the idea of a move to London. Chelsea would be willing to leave him in Belgrade if they could do a deal in January but this is probably one for the summer.}


1.) 07 Dec 2015 20:52:25
A certain Mr Joyce from the E####ss has reported our interest Ed. Nothing in it then as far as your concerned. You'll do for me mate.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation as I understand it to be - if he is saying Liverpool has been tapping up the player you need to ask him about it and not me.}


2.) 07 Dec 2015 22:40:42
I Like the look of hkm. Looks big and strong, would look better in our midfield and coud even add tk someone like allens game.

{Ed002's Note - He would be a replacement for Lucas if Liverpool are interested.}


3.) 07 Dec 2015 22:50:56
Which is long overdue for the simple fact of Lucas growing age, I wouldn't want Lucas to leave but to have a apprentice for him ready made for the day we need him, the boy is only 19 even 2/3 years half starting and he will still only be 22 and hopefully fit to take over from Lucas.

Could you provide us with any news regarding this player ed in the coming weeks about wether you can confirm our interest?

Thanks for the reply.

What do you think of the player btw? Is he highly thought of?

{Ed002's Note - I have told you where the interest is and regardless of Chelsea and Inter having discussions the club are not looking to sell in January.}


5.) 08 Dec 2015 10:22:23
If we bought a cm, why would he replace Lucas when Allen is not as good? Lucas isn't exactly ancient guys.


6.) 08 Dec 2015 12:41:53
Thanks for the reply Ed002.

Grujic is a DM, and hence Ed002's reference to him potentially be a replacement for Lucas if he arrived.


7.) 08 Dec 2015 14:58:58
The player himself has said he was given permission to speak to Liverpool by his club.

Hello Ed002. I asked this on the European pages, but didn't see a reply there, so I thought I would ask here.

Is there any interest in Shakhtar's Alex Teixeira from Liverpool? I have asked about him in the past and you mentioned that Juventus were interested in him, and recently he has been linked to Chelsea.

I think he is an excellent player, and can play anywhere in midfield from central midfield to attacking midfield or as a winger. I remember him playing as a winger in his younger years with Brazil, and has now stepped up. IMO, he is a similar sort of player to Willian and Douglas Costa, but has more to his game than either of them.

Any response would be great, and thanks in advance.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - There is indeed interest in him from elsewhere, but none from Liverpool.}


1.) 30 Oct 2015 12:36:59
Thanks Ed002.


2.) 30 Oct 2015 18:03:40
From what I've seen of Douglas Costa, if he's anywhere near that level he's got talent.

Hello Ed002, I just wanted to ask your opinion on couple of comments I have seen from people who are pretty reliable with their information.

Are you aware that Barcelona have advised both Coutinho and Dembele to behave the way they have been over the past couple of days? Apparently, Barcelona has asked Coutinho to hand in a TR close to Liverpool's PL season opener, and CL qualifier as they thought this would help him move to Barcelona faster as Liverpool wouldn't want distractions this close to the season.

A similar story is emerging out of Germany with regards to Dembele as well.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - Of course they haven't.}


 

 

08 Jun 2017 21:25:50
Hello Ed002 seeing as you are around, I would like your opinion on where FSG stand with regards to this mess with VVD? It is being reported that it was FSG's decision to issue the public apology and withdraw interest in the player which you said earlier was the poorest thing to do in the circumstance.

I have seen your replies where you say Liverpool and Klopp need to get their act together, but too many of these issues have happened prior to Klopp (Suarez issues under Rodgers and Kenny Dalglish for example, Jen Chang another one) and earlier this year I asked you if you think Edwards was the right man for the job and you said something along the lines like you don't think so.

My question, shouldn't FSG be more professional with putting the right people in places in the management so that they then act professionally instead of taking punts as they have done throughout their 7 years here? I mean, LFC have more tapping up complaints against them and issued more public apologies, and have changed more managers than won trophies during FSG's time here.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - It is not the poorest thing to do, but it is embarrassing, hits the reputation hard and means loss of face. THeir biggest concern will be reputation right now and in the past they have acted to remove the likes of Chang.}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 23:27:22
Ag, my post above was written before I had read your post. You articulated the point I was trying to make better then me!

We are a shambles and my guess is it's down to poor recruitment in senior positions.

We need an experienced football person to deal with all transfers to take back some control. This person should be the only person to speak to other clubs and open up negotiations.


 

 

08 Jun 2017 18:45:24
Trying to put the VVD saga behind me, the interest in VVD shows that Liverpool are looking to bring in a CB. I have seen many people say VVD was not worth the money and have even seen posts saying we could get a better player for half the price while others have said that the likes of Dann, Yoshida, Collins are better player than VVD which I think is laughable.

So who are the players we could look to as an alternative to VVD? I have heard the following names mentioned but I am not sure if there is any real interest in any of them: Koulibaly, Keane and Gibson.

The real AG

1.) 08 Jun 2017 19:12:32
The Premier league is not the only existence for CB's.

Stefan de Vrij will probably cost a third of what VVD now will. de Vrij will also not be on some ridiculous pay packet either.

It is the job of our scouts to find the right players and for the club to act responsibly in the market, financially and with respect to other clubs. Liverpool have no clue on how to do any of this.

Liverpool making VVD the most expensive and probably the highest paid CB in world football ever is being responsible, right? Southampton are waiting and will laugh all the way to the bank for many years to come.

Fans are not scouts. Our scouts need to start doing their jobs.


2.) 08 Jun 2017 18:59:06
Quite a few names out there who I'd like. Manolas, Koulibaly, Davison Sanchez, Varane, Gimenez, Tah.


3.) 08 Jun 2017 19:40:22
Jonathan Tah.


4.) 08 Jun 2017 19:54:36
De Vrij is physically weak and would get battered in the premier league, he's not the quickest and has had serious injury problems.
Manolas and is unlikely as Roma neither need or want to sell and he's got a rep for red cards.
Davison Sanchez is an accident waiting to happen, not a good defender at all (taking it you've watched the UEFA cup final? ) .
Varane, not going to happen. Why leave Real for Liverpool when Pepe is leaving.
Jimenez isn't what you'd call a dominant centre half, which is what we need.
Tah, has largely been found out this season for being rather lumpen, he's a big unit, but poor on the ball, poor distribution and hasn't really got lightning pace to make up for his lapses of concentration.


5.) 08 Jun 2017 20:30:43
Joe Gomez - has premier league experience and available for free.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Bournemouth remain keen.}


 

 

07 Jun 2017 19:38:12
Ed001 or Ed002 if you are around, could you please explain the situation with VVD as you know it? Quite clearly, Liverpool have once again proved themselves to be incompetent when it comes to the matters of transfers.

In the past, the blame was almost always attached to Ian Ayre when things didn't go well on the transfer front, but clearly, this is a systemic issue at LFC and whoever is making these calls needs to be let go and a real good shake up is needed at the club. Not the best start for Moore, Edwards and Gordon.

Ultimately, FSG need to show they know what is going on at the club they own and put the right people in place and for that they need to probably get help from people who know football.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - The situation is that the club and Klopp are guilty of making another illegal approach for a player. It is unacceptable and if Liverpool continue in the manner it will end with a transfer ban. Making public apologies makes it embarrassing for the club. Perhaps a ban would drive the point home to the club and Klopp?}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 00:21:01
Eds, pardon my stupidity but when you say Klopp do you mean that he himself has approached the player personally? If that's the case then I'm even more embarrassed.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Klopp has approached players but this tapping up situation at Liverpool has been going on for years.}


2.) 08 Jun 2017 00:54:30
If this has been going on for years, then clearly, it is not Klopp that needs to be careful alone but the people running the show. I think you have to portion some level of responsibility in this to FSG as they make the decisions to put people like Edwards, Chang etc in place.

{Ed001's Note - that is no excuse for Klopp to do it.}

Harvey Barnes is a winger while Curtis Jones is a central midfield player, who can play left midfield. So not sure what Ed002 means when he says Barnes would replace Lallana.

The real AG

{Ed002's Note - Barnes spends most of his time playing LM postion. But let's assume Liverpool don't want him as that but for cover for Mane. That will resolve the attacking issue and allow Liverpool to sell Curtis Jones to raise money. It seems many Liverpool fans are behind that.}

Lewis has said he expects to go out loan next season having missed a lot of this season due to injuries. Larouci clearly is not ready, and evident from Klopp playing Williams, a RB, at LB instead of Larouci. A versatile player is needed to cover the LB/ CB position IMO.

Dembele is talented but the guy is more injury prone than Sturridge. For the sort of wages and transfer fee, it makes no sense to buy him.

Matips' contract ends next summer. I am not sure if he has an option to extend the deal by a further year, but maybe the player is waiting to see if he will be first choice while the club looking to see if Gomez can cement his place in the starting eleven, before making any decision?

It makes no sporting sense to sell him now IMO but it does make good financial sense, and the player gets to play regular football.

The refereeing yesterday was very bad. Even for their goal, the alleged off-side was NOT off-side to begin with. If VAR is there not to upset the referees, they should just remove it. I prefer the people who use it be not so much cowardly.

Talented player, but injuries and expensive. It makes no sense for us to sign Dembele when the club has always said they won't offer large wages, especially for what could be just a squad player.

It’s apparent that Ceballos has undoubtably improved their midfield even though it’s only two games into the season. As for the midfield, we already know that Klopp will go with experience and the defensive - Fabinho, Henderson and Wijnaldum.

Talented player but now it’s all upto him to show he can force his way into the senior team squad. I have seen more talented players NOT make it at Liverpool though.
