Have we shown any interest in Kounde from Seville. There's a lot of hype around him is he the real deal.

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - No there are other targets.}


1.) 19 Feb 2021 08:15:14
Not sure how a 5ft 11 CB gets on in the premier league personally.


2.) 18 Feb 2021 23:22:57
Have our targets shifted at all Ed or the same ones?

{Ed002's Note - The club will continue to look at options.}


3.) 19 Feb 2021 09:09:38
He’s 5’10” according to what I’ve seen? He’d be easily targeted by the more “lumpen” teams in the league.


4.) 18 Feb 2021 23:35:05
Is Ben White still on that list ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes he will be.}


5.) 19 Feb 2021 12:59:19
is nikola milenkovic from fiorentina also one of lfc's wishlist for centreback ed?

{Ed002's Note - Nikola Milenkovic (CB) Inter Milan, Manchester United and Juventus have all expressed and interest in Milenkovic who Fiorentina will possibly be open to selling for €50M-€60M in the summer. His representatives are pushing him toward Manchester United who already have a lengthy list of targets and their prior interest could return - he was an alternative to Maguire. I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time.}

Kounde although only around 5'10" -5'11", is one of the best players aerially. Just height alone isn't everything to be good in the air.
Good leap and timing of the jump can be more important.


7.) 19 Feb 2021 15:14:19
Thanks ed 🙏👍.


8.) 19 Feb 2021 16:14:21
*Kounde is one of the best player aerially in La Liga.

Did we show any interest in Fofana before he went to Leicester. Can see him being a real talent.

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - No but lots of other sides did.}


1.) 23 Jan 2021 23:05:39
Leicester City have a great scouting department like ourselves, do they use data analytics like we do?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know what they do nowadays.}


2.) 24 Jan 2021 04:53:32
We hardly have a great scouting department.
Not one of our recent youth buys has made the team and most of our first team buys have been 3rd or 4th choices.

We are getting better at transfers because we have been able to sell someplayers at ridiculous prices.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure you understand how scouting works if you think that 3rd and 4th choices turning a team into champions is not good work.}


3.) 24 Jan 2021 11:23:18
Scouting is pretty hard. City/ Chelsea are very good at it because they can just throw money constantly at as many youth players they want. Leicester seem to be one of the best. I actually think Arsenal are good at scouting young players, despite their inconsistent form.

United are pretty decent however a lot of people forget just how many youth players they have signed in the last 10 years who barely played a game for them. I don't think we have a bad department, it's just getting harder and harder to find youth players who can make the step up in England.

A lot of the young talent is being snapped up the German teams and integrated into the first team at a very early age.

Plus the Prem and English fans are very unforgiving, if youth player don't make an instant impact, everyone wants them gone.

Our scouting department isn't bad at all, we get class players these days, we just don't have the finances to buy all our targets like City and Chelsea.

Sadly most of the teams finances have been gutted and we are certainly one of them. Like the Eds have said, we need to sell to buy. If I was FSG currently, I'd be putting huge emphasis on looking for HG players and top youngsters from the championship.

This would help us stabilize finances and keep growing the squad. The other thing I'd do as Liverpool is actually develop a world class teaching/ development plan for the youngsters so if they don't make it at the highest level they have everything they need to thrive in another Career. Imagine having working in Physio/ business/ finance/ data at Liverpool on your CV, that would bring a lot of weight.

If I was a young lad and I had various offers and a team said look, even of you don't make it at the top level we have all this support to help you thrive, I'd be picking them every day of the week.

Do we have any genuine interest in Raphina looks some player.

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}


 

 

22 Feb 2021 21:30:51
Do we still have interest in Diego Carlos.

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - Everything will depend on how Kabak does I would think.}


1.) 23 Feb 2021 10:31:23
Not looking too good at the minute for him Ed002.


2.) 23 Feb 2021 10:55:25
Personally think Kabak will be a very good CB in 4-5 years but unfortunately we need someone with more experience and quality at this moment of time. The timing with Kabak is just wrong.
Think we will get Caleta-Car from Marseille in the summer.


3.) 23 Feb 2021 11:06:08
Why don't we sell Matip and keep Kabak and go for someone who can bloody play more than 20 games in a row.


4.) 23 Feb 2021 11:12:04
Not much good being able to play 20 games in a row if you can’t defend.


5.) 23 Feb 2021 12:02:21
The lad is still only 20 and has been getting battered all season.

It’s a big step up for him on the back of a torrid year so far.

Put it into context slightly VVD at the same stage was just breaking through at Groningen.

Maybe he won’t be good enough and yeah his rashness is concerning but he deserves a good go of it.

{Ed077's Note - But the early signs have been worrying. Maybe like you cited with VVD's case, LFC isn't the right place for him at this stage?


6.) 23 Feb 2021 12:28:02
Kabak isn’t cheap either so if we are going to lay out 18m there’s probably better and more experience players out there.


7.) 23 Feb 2021 12:49:51
We won't need Kabak if Davies gets his chance.

{Ed077's Note - And proves himself too😁


8.) 23 Feb 2021 14:09:14
Wonder why isn't Davies getting a chance?

{Ed077's Note - Injury. But now he is fit, was on the bench against Everton


9.) 23 Feb 2021 15:26:17
Maybe it's me, and perhaps most will not agree, but I've seen Kabak improving every game. And it's a plus for me that he can play both CB positions. However, that doesn't absolve the errors made either. Which brings me to the line I've seen very often for Curtis Jones; "give the guy a break he's only 19 (20 since Jan. ), he needs a run of games". Well, how about giving the same consideration to Kabak?


10.) 23 Feb 2021 15:34:55
Because Klopp is obsessed with playing midfielders at the back?


11.) 23 Feb 2021 19:20:32
Thought kabak did OK against Everton to be fair. only his 2nd game for us. I'd just throw him and philips at back from now till end of season. Get fab back in the middle with thiago and Curtis Jones or ox. Will have no choice if news of hendos injury scan is proved correct, that he's out for season too.


 

 

31 Jan 2021 21:01:53
Would Davies be available for the champions league.

TobyRed

{Ed0666's Note - yes


 

 

27 Jan 2021 21:55:20
Any truth in the rumours linking us with Konate? Have we shown interest. Would he be a good option and viable.

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - RBL accept they will lose Upamecano this summer but they will not want to sell Konate. A huge bid would be required, so it seems unlikely.}


 

 

06 Jan 2021 21:12:50
What's happened to Laporte. Heard he's unhappy at city worth a try maybe?

TobyRed

1.) 06 Jan 2021 21:48:13
Do you seriously think we could afford him and do you seriously think City would sell him to us?


2.) 06 Jan 2021 22:14:53
Your very serious T2😁.

Has the C.V. hit us the hardest. Which other teams are struggling?

TobyRed

{Ed002's Note - It has hit all teams hard - and in France there are other problems that have made it far harder for the teams.}
