Hi Ed001,

I would like to ask, what do you think about the youngster Homes who will be available on a free transfer. Do you think he is someone capable of being moulded into something unique like others at Liverpool?
Also based on the current financial constraints, has their being any update of transfers in and out or is just about waiting for the season to end before we see a possible move.
YNWA Champions of England, Europe, World!

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry I have no idea what you are talking about. I guess it must be an autocorrect issue or something, because I don't know who 'youngster Homes' is.}


1.) 29 Jun 2020 12:05:28
He means Gomes from Man U.


2.) 29 Jun 2020 12:02:51
I think he means Angel Gomes from United.

{Ed001's Note - oh ok yeah that makes sense. No interest from us that I am aware of, but I don't see him as suited to us anyway.}


3.) 29 Jun 2020 14:57:52
With the ridiculous prices nowadays I prefer we buy young and let klopp and the coaches nurture them. I'd hate to see anyone come in and stop Brewster, Elliott and Jones's progress.

Hi Ed01,

I would like to ask, is there someone that isn't linked to is, that we could be targeting? What do you think of the Atlanta team in Italy. Is there any player that can improve or add quality to to our current crop? Do you feel any of Mane or Salah, will be fine by summer?
Thanks in advance ed

YNWA.

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - 1. How can I answer that? I don't know who is being linked to us and who isn't. I don't look at stuff to know, but it always seemed like everyone in the world was being linked by someone to us so I very much doubt there is anyone that isn't linked to us, let alone that we could be targeting.

2. Very good team, I said a long time back Everton should have hired Gasperini and I still think that is the route they should have gone down each time since. He is getting the most out of that squad. That Gosens always impresses me when I get to watch him.

3. Will be fine? I am not sure what you are asking there sorry. If you mean sold, I would doubt it, they are at their peak so would cost an enormous fee. Who could afford them that wants them? Zidane would love to sign Mane, but it is unlikely he will still be in charge at Madrid by the summer.}


1.) 01 Mar 2020 21:05:46
Ed02, I fully agree with you on Gasperini killing it with Atalanta right now. He is adept at getting the best out of players at modest clubs cos he was in charge of Genoa back in the day and they were just as good. Thiago Motta re-made his name there before joining Inter with Jose.

I do wonder whether the main reason he has not gotten a better job was that his reputation flopped massively after the failed at Inter when he got hired off the back of his heroics at Genoa. Now, it could be that he failed cos Inter has been a basket case for a decade since Mou left them and was not given time BUT that is just my view.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know whether to be insulted or not that you called me Ed002!?!}


2.) 02 Mar 2020 07:13:06
I totally agree ed1 that guy Gosens looks to be a really good player but that whole Atalanta side plays well most of the time regardless of who is playingbin the team and who they are playing against.

Also you say it is unlikely Zidane will still be in charge of Real Madrid by the summer so may I who are they looking at and more importantly why are they looking at maybe getting rid of him seeing that they are top of the league. I do know they haven't been at their best but the side is still almost the same as 2_3 yrs ago with most of their new signings constantly getting injured.

Cheers
Have a good day.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure who will be replacing him, it is more of a personality clash than anything that is the issue, though it doesn't help that the football is dire to watch under Zidane and he is in danger of going out of the Champions League. Madrid managers get judged on European performances, not really La Liga. Zidane would not be the first to win the league and lose his job because he didn't win the Champions League.}

Hi Ed001,

Do you see a twist to our formation for the second half of the season. Let's say, if Minamino gel quickly in the team. Do you see a tactical tweak of 4-3-3 , 4-2-3-1, 4-2-2-2 wide.

Will appreciate your feedback as to how you feel it will go for the second half of the season. Will not mind adding a domestic cup to our cabinet as well before the end of this season.

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - it changes constantly throughout the game anyway, depending on how it is going, I doubt it will be changed much from that.}


1.) 28 Dec 2019 20:50:09
We are way too flexible tactically on the pitch for anyone to pigeon-hole our players into specific positions. For ex. any of our mids (bar Naby and Lallana, IMO) can play the 6 or the 8 while any of our front 3 can play anywhere upfront. Minamino can play on either flank or in the 10 or as a second striker. I don't think anything will change, really, like Ed said.

Hi Ed,

Who amongst the current young players in the league, will suit our style play, let's say in a season or two.

YNWA.

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - the one I would go for is the Brighton centre-back on loan at Leeds, whose name complete escapes me. Aarons of Norwich would be excellent as well but as he plays right-back he might struggle to get games.}


1.) 28 Dec 2019 20:23:59
Thanks for your response Ed01.
What do you think of Hwang-Hee chan of Salzburg. It seems Klopp love some other players in that squad.
What do you think of him as a player and will he fit our system.
Is he any different to what we already have?

YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - lots of pace but absolutely no end product and not good enough technique for my liking.}


2.) 28 Dec 2019 20:57:54
Ben White.


3.) 29 Dec 2019 00:56:13
I think everyone is asking about lee coz he got vvd on the ground ed01😅.

{Ed001's Note - yeah but then failed to take advantage.}


4.) 29 Dec 2019 06:09:06
Max Aarons can play left back as well, ed001. Think he'd be excellent cover for both full back positions if we can sign him for a snip if/ when Norwich go down, especially since he'd be home grown for PL registration purposes.


5.) 29 Dec 2019 10:23:23
Hwang-Hee Chan looks like he could be heading to Wolves.

It can't be good for Salzberg's season to let Minamino, Haaland and Chan leave in the same transfer window.

Hi Ed01,

Given our current squad, which position so you see us looking at, during the summer transfer Windows.

Always appreciate your remarks on the team.

YNWA!

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - far too early to say but right now full-backs look in need of cover.}


1.) 28 Dec 2019 15:58:21
Would be great to have a full back able to cover both sides. This is why I was a little disappointed we didn’t get Perrera. Our full backs are so important to how we play and it’s so noticeable when Milner or Gomez are filling in.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 16:09:15
Anyone in particular we should be looking at Ed001? Difficult position for us because of the we our fullbacks play.

{Ed001's Note - there are a few good ones, but not sure who I would say would be worth going for as they are only going to play sometimes.}


3.) 28 Dec 2019 21:04:52
Westwood666,I don't know BUT I just don't rate Perreira from LC. He looks the part for sure BUT he seems to lack physicality and bite in the challenge while he is often caught out when he goes forward. He also positionally suspect. He does play in a system where his flaws are well-hidden BUT vs good teams like say, LFC he gets exposed.


4.) 29 Dec 2019 10:07:27
What about Hoever and Williams!

Could we be looking to making a move on him during the summer transfer window and who do you think he can usurp in the team or is it just a case of increasing the squad depth?

Van Dijk

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly predict the timing of transfers. There will be interest in Liverpool players in the summer - Real Madrid may look to Sadio Mane for example and perhaps he would provide a suitable replacement if he were to leave. But my expectation is that Liverpool will look to hang on to their three primary attacking players and perhaps refine the depth - and the problem with the higher-end or higher-cost players is that they want to be in the starting line-up. Certainly Barcelona will have him available for sale or possibly trade in the summer.}

I couldn't agree more with your take on the game. It might seem difficult from a point but for the return leg to be in front of the fans, is the best time to react. We were the better side all through and yet tasted defeat. We need to continue to push and let's see what the end of the season holds. Regardless of the end, this is a BIG STEP forward for the club and we are two to three players short of matching MAN CITY.

couldn't agree more Para-red. We need to be at our full support in recent years to spur us to the FINAL. Is it doable yes, can we overcome three goals yes, We need to be at full voice, just like the first leg against Man City last season's quarter final. I have never experienced such an atmosphere before. it is WOW.
YNWA.
