Evening Ed002. Do we have any interest in Emiliano Buendia please?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to Norwich, and as he is a RW would he be a replacement for Minimona?}


1.) 03 Jan 2020 02:25:47
How about Jamal Lewis?


2.) 03 Jan 2020 03:27:28
Any interest in getting a Virgil page set up for all of his questions?


3.) 03 Jan 2020 07:36:50
Didn’t ed2 very kindly provide an update of all he knows about a week ago? Pretty sure it was at your request as well OP.


4.) 03 Jan 2020 17:46:53
To be fair to the op a week is a long time in football and anything can happen.
Over last few seasons we have singed players or nearly singed players that we haven't even heard of.


5.) 03 Jan 2020 21:39:33
Yeah the updates very rarely change tho mate.


 

 

29 Dec 2019 21:41:21
Ed002, away from all the VAR talk mate I was browsing the UTD page and seen you gave a brief summary of players and positions the club have a level of interest in recruiting. Any chance you we could have a similar update please? Understand if you don't have the time however.

Thanks in advance mate.

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about the timings of transfers but can tell you where I know of some level of interest.

I expect the needs will be for: CB, LM, CM/AM

I would expect Liverpool to look at the midfield next summer and still look to a LM and again an AM - they are two positions where there could be improvement. I suspect that a CB may well need to be added but that assuming Lovren or someone else leaves. Liverpool may look to bolster the HG quota and have looked at Dael Fry (CB), Ben White (CB) and Ben Godfrey (CB). Much will depend on youngsters developing and how Gomez does - assuming Lovren is leaving.

Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
Ben Godfrey (CB) - another HG option to Fry
Ben White (CB) another option to Fry

Mathieu Goncalves (LB) Toulouse say they have spoken with Juventus over the player but it has been suggested that Liverpool will look to him at the expense of Larouci, which would be a shame as he is well thought of.

Klopp apparently remains keen on Sander Berge (DM) but it is difficult to see how he would get regular game time with Fabinho in the side. Napoli and Fiorentina are both keen and West Ham see him as a replacement for Declan Rice if he were to leave.

Piotr Zielinski (CM/LM) speculative but Klopp has had interest for some time and he will be one of the Napoli players made available - but would expect to be a starter and is expected to be given a significant increase in wages to stay at Napoli.

Kai Havertz (AM) Bayern Munich will likely move for KH if the option on Philippe Coutinho not taken up, but interest from elsewhere - particularly Barcelona (if Coutinho leaves), Manchester City (as a David Silva replacement) and Juventus. Interest of Milan will likely not go anywhere. Dortmund and PSG have both certainly spoken with his agent. Numerous other clubs have had scouts watch including Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid who have watched him on a number of occasions but either don't see the value in the price now or have other targets (where Chelsea and Real Madrid are concerned). Whether Liverpool wish to throw their hat in to the ring is another matter.

Bild wrote an article citing interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid - and then went on to write another saying Manchester United and Manchester City have spoken directly with the player - which they have not. Somewhere down the line an English paper added Liverpool as one of these clubs. Right now, Liverpool has not made any approach to Bayer Leverkusen regarding the player.

The reality is that all four clubs want an AM player - and he is Bayern's preferred recourse assuming they decide not to take up the option on Coutinho. Manchester United are looking for an AM player and have been baulking at the price being asked for Bruno Fernandes (AM) and have not lost sight of Christian Eriksen (AM). They have certainly looked at him, but I am not aware of more than that and I am sure they have not spoken with the player directly. Real Madrid are also looking for an AM player and have been attracted by the low-cost option of Eriksen. Finally, Manchester United do have the need to replace David Silva but it would be a very significant investment in a youngster.}

Filip Stevanovic (LW/AM) Partizan Belgrade kiddie who has been watched by Spurs, Borussia Dortmund, Torino, Liverpool, Lazio, Atlanta, Herta Berlin, Werder Bremen and Southampton. And I suspect others. Unlikely to leave until 2021.

Mohammed Daramy (F) kiddie has been looked at and might be seen as a replacement for Liam Miller (F) who has no future at Liverpool and will leave.

Aside from that it is critical that Liverpool identify if any senior players are looking to leave - the more notice they have of that the better the opportunity to plan.
Amine Harit (AM) is having a decent season but I am not aware of interest of Liverpool but they have sxouted Schalke matches. He would be effectively a like-for-like replacement for Shakiri and he would likely get around the same amount of opportunities. He will be 21 or so now and I would expect a drop to the bench would not be attractive for a player who is playing regularly at a good level. He has turned down clubs in the past as it would stagnate. It makes no sense for the player or the club. And bringing in non-HG players to pad out the squad makes no sense either. Signed a new contract to fend off interest from elsewhere.
Takumi Minamino (RW/F) Augsburg were keen in the summer and at one time Everton and Dynamo Moscow had scouts look at Takumi Minamino. Will join in January.
Bilel Hassaini (RW) was looked at several times last season but is in a state of flux right now and you can likely forget him.

Thomas Muller (F) is miffed because he has been on the bench but Bayern Munich will not sell him without a replacement and there is nothing to indicate that he will be available in January. Additionally, he would I assume be a Firmino replacement if he were to join.

It has been suggested that Liverpool will look to David Neres (LW/RW) although I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool - if they were to declare interest it would likely be at the expense of Salah. Neres is liked by a number of sides but he has a reputation for sometimes going missing and being rather moody.}. As for Salah, I am aware that he and his agent are aware that they have put themselves in a difficult position with financial demands which saw them laughed out of Madrid and approaches to other sides came to nothing - regardless, Liverpool is probably the best place for Salah to be biding his time right now. The efforts to boost his profile will no doubt continue, and he will doubtless be holidaying with a professional photographer again and be seen kissing babies and rescuing swooning girls with twisted ankles from being eaten by bears. But these efforts to sell him as the new Real Madrid poster boy may come to nothing as they have a first-choice forward target for next summer. So right now, it is hard to say where he could potentially move to unless things change - and they always do. In terms of a replacement, the player Klopp has made no secret of his desire to work with is Lorenzo Insigne but I suspect age is against that ever happening. So if someone were to push me in to saying who would be the best fit if Salah were to leave next summer, I would say Federico Chiesa. He would be a direct replacement, has similar attributes to Salah, is you, liked by Klopp and, although Liverpool have shown no interest, will be sold next summer - assuming Fiorentina can fight off Inter this summer.

Victor Osimhen (S/F) One particular Liverpool scout is pressing for the club to sign him. Barcelona have also shown an interest, but they have a financial issue to solve first - he only joined in the summer and Lille will resist any January bids - and it is hard to see why the player would consider a career on the bench. Spurs have looked at him and spoken with his agent. A senior Chelsea scout has also been watching the player who could be seen as an option to their primary striker target - but their need is for January rather than the summer. There was serious interest from Arsenal when he was much younger, but he opted for Wolfsburg.

Erling Haaland (S) There was no Liverpool interest.

Outbound:
Devan Lovren (CB) perhaps in the summer
Nathaniel Phillips (CB) should be headed back to Stuttgart on loanLiam Millar (F) - a youngster who will suffer the same fate as most of the youngsters at Liverpool
Allan (CM) should be joining Flumenense after discussions in Brazil but there is a counter-offer from Atletico Mineiro
Adam Lallana (LM, AM, CM) I think time has come
James Milner (M/W) perhaps
Rhian Brewster (S) loan to Swansea

Thanks edd 2, excellent update.


2.) 30 Dec 2019 09:57:33
Great summary Ed002. thank you.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ancelotti wants Zielinski at Everton.

{Ed002's Note - Napoli are not easy to deal with at the best of times.}


3.) 30 Dec 2019 10:10:26
Thank you for your very in-depth reply and information Ed002, very much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


4.) 30 Dec 2019 10:14:43
Informative Ed002, your description of Salah on his holidays still makes me laugh. Who knows, maybe this year Salah will excel himself by fighting the fires in Australia or removing all the plastic bags from our oceans, surely that would get him his dream move.


5.) 30 Dec 2019 10:46:20
Wow thanks for such an in depth answer.


6.) 30 Dec 2019 11:14:37
Was this written pre-Minamino, ie does his arrival change the am/ lm part?

Also are there any plans for grujic to stay? Seems like he would be a good bet to replace Lallana.

{Ed002's Note - Minamino is a RW primarily so it changes nothing aside from taking Harry Wilson out of the equation. Hertha Berlin are a club very much on the up with grand plans - they want to keep Grujic. There is no guarantee that he will get a work permit in England and Liverpool may take the chance to profit as he does not qualify as home grown. But he has been doing well.}


7.) 30 Dec 2019 11:24:20
Thanks, ED002. That was quite comprehensive!


8.) 30 Dec 2019 11:38:10
Thanks Ed002.
Just putting this out there, but if Liverpool were to receive £150 million plus for Salah, is it worth putting £50 - 60 million Wolves way to take Traore?
The guy is a bomb waiting to explode, he’d be very difficult to stop in a front 3 like Liverpool’s.
It would certainly make good financial sense.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that Liverpool has any interest in the player.}


9.) 30 Dec 2019 12:42:21
ed with Brexit will that make a work permit harder for grujic?

{Ed002's Note - No, it will make no difference.}


10.) 30 Dec 2019 13:44:54
I'd rather keep Salah myself. I think Traore is frighteningly quick but wouldn't have near the end product of Salah.


11.) 30 Dec 2019 14:34:27
@DarraghRed. That was one of my criticisms of Traore in the past and I thought that it was a mistake for Wolves to be buying him. His end product has improved massively. I'd say more than anyone ever expected it to.

He's now become a real quality player, and I'm shocked to be saying that because he used to be awful and just all about pace.


12.) 30 Dec 2019 15:14:05
It's silly season I know but I've just seen some media speculation that Liverpool will pay the release clause of Diego Carlos from Sevilla next summer, £64m is the release clause for the Brazilian CB, probably tabloid BS.


13.) 30 Dec 2019 17:23:12
I certainly don’t want to lose Salah but, if he were to leave, then Traore is more than worth considering imo.


14.) 30 Dec 2019 18:20:30
Ed002. Does Grujic's future at Hertha Berlin hinge on their interest in Granit Xhaka?

{Ed002's Note - No, they play in different positions.}


15.) 30 Dec 2019 18:53:05
eds, what's your take on brewster given the recent news on a loan to swansea? has the club's position on him changed at all? do you know if they see him having a future still at LFC? i can't imagine him being willing to sit through multiple years of loans while they make up their mind on him.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any proposals for multiple years on loan for Brewster but he has been the pick of the youth striking talent coming through the systems - and of course he is home grown which is important. Right now there appears to be no intention to use him regardless of the promises made by Klopp. He will head out on loan in January and in the summer the club will need to decide if a year on loan would make him ready to be considered, if he will sit on the finges not playing or if they just let him be one of the youngsters who need to look elsewhere. He has been considered a great talent all of the way through the system, but I am afraid that counts for little or nothing now at Liverpool.}


16.) 30 Dec 2019 19:29:07
Thanks, Ed002. Appreciate the quick and thorough reply, as always.


17.) 31 Dec 2019 02:29:37
£50-£60m on Traore?! Now I’ve seen everything - you must be basing that on him having two good games vs City this season because he is made to look above average due to his sheer pace, but his goals/ assists record is really poor. Don’t get me wrong, I like him and think he could make a great squad / impact player at a decent club, but for that money he would be expecting to start and I fully believe Origi is miles ahead of him as a footballer overall (maybe not miles ahead in a foot race though tehe) . I reckon Jota has the attributes to be a top players though.

(Sorry is the above seemed like a scathing message, was by no means my intent if it comes across that way! )


18.) 31 Dec 2019 13:13:03
Nuno has managed him well and should continue to do so but I don't think Traore would be on my Xmas list just yet.


19.) 31 Dec 2019 15:42:04
I would say as far as the big clubs go, youth players have the best chance at LFC. For one we don't overstock the squad with cheap foreign players.
Why this dislike for the way LFC work their youngsters? surely its down to quality of the player over anything else, as we have seen with Trent.

{Ed002's Note - They have been leaving Liverpool - or hadn't you noticed?}


 

 

22 Dec 2019 20:57:28
Ed do we still have interest in James Rodriguez?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed025's Note - in a word..NO..


1.) 22 Dec 2019 22:11:04
I sincerely hope not.


2.) 22 Dec 2019 22:26:10
not going to happen. he is not hard working enough for a Klopp signing.


3.) 22 Dec 2019 22:57:11
Thank god for that.


4.) 23 Dec 2019 06:22:30
Weres the thumbs down button when you need it.


5.) 23 Dec 2019 09:49:08
In a word, “why?! ”.


6.) 23 Dec 2019 10:54:53
Hi g1dgo

Why? He is a poor man's Philippe Coutinho at an expensive price tag in my opinion.


7.) 23 Dec 2019 13:19:19
ed25 says no. Phew.

{Ed025's Note - why would you want him?, hed be lucky to get on your bench..


8.) 23 Dec 2019 14:05:14
I think he played 1 good game in a world cup about 9 yrs ago and that's about it.


9.) 23 Dec 2019 21:01:17
Exactly Ed25, couldn't agree more mate, I wouldn't have him anywhere near the Everton team nevermind the Liverpool one lol! how you doing mate?

{Ed025's Note - im good thanks salah me old mate, hope you get all you want this christmas my friend as your one of the good guys..


10.) 23 Dec 2019 22:54:44
Cheers Ed25, I'll get me new pair of socks, no doubt ;) . Hope you and your family have a good one mate.

{Ed025's Note - cheers mate..


11.) 24 Dec 2019 10:59:46
Did we ever?


12.) 24 Dec 2019 22:15:52
Happy Christmas ed25! Hope you have a good one!

{Ed025's Note - and you Bmena mate..


 

 

18 Dec 2019 11:17:14
Hi Ed002. Wanted your thoughts please in Minamino. Do you think it is a good signing in terms if is he well thought of by others. Also will him signing have any impact on what we do with Shaqiri, given they play in similar positions.

Also would this be the Attacking Midfield player you recently advised us that the club might well look to strengthen in.

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - Takumi Minamino (RW/F) has gotten himself a good reputation over the past couple of years but he is primarily a RW - although he has occasionally been used as an AM and LW. Shaqiri will be behind him in the pecking order but much will depend on other comings and goings as space has to be made in the squad.

Augsburg were keen in the summer and at one time Everton and Dynamo Moscow had scouts look at Takumi Minamino. His agent and a third party lawyer have held discussions recently with Werder Bremen about the player and Liverpool became interested and have been talking to RBL - an agreement has been for the transfer subject to the financials being agreed (I assume they have now), a medical and a Work Permit.

It would not be a surprise to see a Liverpool player or two go on loan to RBS at sime point.}


1.) 18 Dec 2019 11:42:48
Without it causing to much trouble ed, are we paying more than the reported 7.5million?

{Ed002's Note - That was about the Liverpool starting price in negotiations. Until the TMS is updated - perhaps by the end of the first week in January - will I not know the actual agreed deal (including add ons (e.g. for appearances)).}


2.) 18 Dec 2019 12:38:32
Thank you for the detailed reply Ed002, very much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You arew elcome.}


3.) 18 Dec 2019 12:48:59
Thanks ed.


4.) 18 Dec 2019 13:11:43
I like the idea of a loan or two to RBS, they play a great game and quite similar in style to Liverpool in many ways. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but your hint Ed02 is fascinating and could explain why they’d be Ok to let him go in Jan? Maybe Rhian and/ or Curtis? Hope that’s the case as would be a very very smart move if true!


5.) 18 Dec 2019 13:17:04
With you suggesting a possibility of players being loaned to RBS, would you think of this as somewhere Brewster could recieve some game time? In my head it seems like a decent plan for us, and feasibly for the player himself with Haaland reportedly moving on, but does it seem like something Salzberg may be interested in?

{Ed002's Note - No, I said at some point.}


6.) 18 Dec 2019 23:04:18
Rhian needs higher level experience in my opinion. If someone like palace were interested or even Leeds, that level is better for him, he could easily get minutes at palace.


7.) 19 Dec 2019 08:49:44
I've seen rumours online this morning that Brewster and Curtis could be off to Swansea on loan. Personally think that would be a good little move for them. I believe both played under Cooper for England youth teams so if he is after them i would expect it to be straight into the first team for them for plenty of game time.


 

 

12 Dec 2019 09:52:02
It seems we are indeed after Minamino in January then Ed002?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - Augsburg were keen in the summer and at one time Everton and Dynamo Moscow had scouts look at Takumi Minamino. His agent and a third party lawyer have held discussions recently with Werder Bremen about the player and seemingly Liverpool are interested, but I am not aware of any offer being made just yet.}


1.) 12 Dec 2019 10:44:03
Ed002, with this Takumi Minamino news splattered all over the internet, was he always on our radar, or is this just a fortuitous or spontaneous move because we played them twice and he was consistent in both legs and was arguably their best player across both games? Any further insight you could share about the evolution of this potential move will be appreciated.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I have said all I know.}


2.) 12 Dec 2019 10:46:53
Ok Ed cheers for reply mate.


3.) 12 Dec 2019 10:49:23
Probably loaned back to Salzburg for the rest of the season.


4.) 12 Dec 2019 13:43:38
We are getting him before Southampton?


5.) 12 Dec 2019 12:18:56
PakRed why would we do that when we are sending out Curtis Jones and Brewster on loan?


6.) 13 Dec 2019 10:41:59
I agree - if we get him I think it’s more likely we see others go out on loan (Brewster for playing time) or even sold (Shaqiri doesn’t feel a long term solution) .

I suspect Minamino is thought of as someone capable of covering both wings or even Firmino’s ‘playmaker 9’ role, so arguably better fit in our system than anything we’ve currently got.

Ed001 What's your thoughts on Ox performance yesterday mate? I thought he was decent. Looked fit and very busy all over the pitch.

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - I thought he was really good but he did pick up a bang to the ankle which was worrying. He didn't seem to be moving properly after that, I assume that was why he was taken off.}


1.) 20 Jan 2020 13:07:22
Argh ok mate didn’t realise tbh. He sat on the bench when he come off so I hope he didn’t pick up an injury.


2.) 20 Jan 2020 13:40:19
He was royally pissed off about something when he sat down. Must have been the knock.


3.) 20 Jan 2020 15:59:26
Really, really like aoc. He's a really dangerous player going forward but he does the other things a cm should. I know we play with three cms but with the ox it's usually RM. He picks up and chases a lot of balls out on the right. What I like about him in the team is hix goal threat. Not to mention, he's a nice lad, old school.


4.) 20 Jan 2020 19:29:28
Spot on, Ed01. I thought Ox was brilliant yesterday till he came ioff. He was buzzing, getting on the ball, pressing and most importantly, creating. I mean that pass to Gini for the disallowed goal (with his left foot, mind you) was sublime. Had Messi pulled that off, we would not have heard the last of it. Hopefully the knock he got was not too bad.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed.}


5.) 20 Jan 2020 19:45:48
ed001 I thought Ox was great yesterday I thought Lallana struggled to get to the pace of the game when he came on and you could see the difference once Ox had gone off.

{Ed001's Note - agreed.}


6.) 21 Jan 2020 00:32:19
Ox did play very well in his role but I do think Trent isn't able to influence as good when OX is on that side, I still prefer hendo operating and protecting Trent when fabinho is available to play in DM.


 

 

14 Jan 2020 17:23:13
Sounds like the injury situation is getting a bit better, Lovren, Matip and Fabinho all back in contention for the Utd game. Still nothing on Milner or Keita though from the club, which I find a little strange.

Anyone heard anything on those 2?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


1.) 14 Jan 2020 18:31:12
Nothing strange mate, Milner and Naby have muscle injuries and both very recent. Muscle injuries can vary in healing time.


2.) 14 Jan 2020 18:55:49
Fair enough Drogie, it’s good we getting a few players back though to help between now and end of season. I always worry about our lack of options in certain areas but I guess we have more than enough cover.


3.) 14 Jan 2020 19:13:13
Totally agree mate, having Fabhino, Lovren and Matip back is just what we need.


4.) 14 Jan 2020 22:15:48
Is it just me or is naby turning into a kewell situation. Seems like a regular sick note.


5.) 14 Jan 2020 23:08:49
We all worry about injuries Virgil but that’s what we have a squad for and so far it’s served us well.
There’s always a drop in quality between first and second choice at every club. Even City although the media would have you believe different.
The trick is to try to make that drop in quality as small as possible and I think we’ve got that in pretty much every position apart from left back maybe.
I don’t think we’re in a position where we’ll ever lose just one player and it will derail us like City did with Laporte.


6.) 14 Jan 2020 23:51:49
I don't worry about injuries Becker, there is nothing you can do about it and every club gets injuries at some point.
If someone gets injured it's up to the next player to step up and prove they deserve to be in the team. Adrian did it when Alisson got injured, we beat Barcelona 4-0 without Firmino and Salah.


7.) 15 Jan 2020 01:37:46
Of them all fabhino is a massive boost. Gomez has been brilliant. Wonder if he's nailed down his position?

Agree with keita comment. Can't seem to play 4 matches without an injury. Shame coz he was looking classy lately.


8.) 15 Jan 2020 04:17:19
We're at the level now where we have genuine strenght and proved we can cope with injuries. We never dropped a point playing 2 months without our top keeper, we've had to use each of our CB for periods when others were injured. We've been without our crucial DM for the busiest period where he missed a large number of games. Keita has only been available for 20% of games, shaqiri also. Salahs ankle problem saw us spend weeks virtually without his impact. OX and lallana have regularly been missing chunks with niggles. And until now we never had a minamino. My point is we've had long periods without our first choice keeper, first choice CB, first choice midfielder and star forward hampered with ankle problems. We've regularly had 2 CBs out together, nearly always have 2 or 3 midfielders injured at same time and shaqiri hardly been available in support of attack yet we've never shown we drop our level when rotating which is why we need not worry about Milner and keita yet, fabinho back and OX and lallana fit with gini and hendo flying we don't drop our level of quality. City have not shown they can sustain their standards without laporte and sane injured while short term injuries to like of aguero and ederson has seen them struggle and fall behind us.

Our squad is currently healthier and fitter than last 6 weeks where we've faced a packed schedule without any of those 3 players who are due to return now along with our new versatile signing. Youngsters have shown also they are capable if needed and can genuinely be trusted as opposed to previous years where youngsters were always a gamble to be used in last resort.

When we learned Alison would miss a couple of months 1 game into the season we all worried it could cost us, we often said that fabinho needs to play every game or that an injury to any of our front 3 or full back could cost us. Well Alison and fabinho have both not been missed in terms of results. Robbo wasn't playing the 2nd half when we spanked Barca, salah and firmino missed out many games end of last season where we won ever fixture. Even VVD rare game he missed we kept a clean sheet against Bayern. We often hear people say what if VVD or salah got a 6 month injury could we cope? Yes I finally think we would. Of course we would miss them but I'd fancy matip and gomez to do more than good enough while minamino, origi and shaqiri have enough quality to be dangerous alongside our other world class forwards.


9.) 15 Jan 2020 10:04:34
Exactly right Har 💪.

I agree with you har red. You always speak sense mate. Remember before vvd though? We were awful at the back. We needed to be 3 0 up to feel comfortable as we often caved under pressure, not once but twice in a game. Alison makes a big difference, and I hope gomez has grown as a cb. The 2 players that would worry me are van djike and henderson.

Ed001 what's your take on the new lite deal mate please? Is it on of the best lucrative deals in the Prem? Another step in the wright direction?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - lite? Ohhh do you mean the Nike one? Sorry took me a while to figure that out, I am half asleep. To be honest I don't really care one way or the other. Only thing that bothers me is will we be wearing just another crappy generic kit, like we did with Adidas and Reebok in the past? Other than that, only thing that matters to me is the Liverbird on the chest.

No point worrying about the money, it will only be a big deal until the next set of deals get signed.}


1.) 07 Jan 2020 18:12:39
Yes sorry mate obviously meant Nike. I no what you mean, looks a decent financial package from what I’ve read. Doesn’t overly bother me either, only means my Lad will want it and his one he got fir Xmas won’t be worn again as it will be “out of date” .


2.) 07 Jan 2020 19:47:16
I agree, Ed01. Nike kits are quite shambolic in quality with no real originality, IMO.

{Ed001's Note - the only exception is the Jordan kits they did for PSG in the Champions League. They were beautiful.}


3.) 08 Jan 2020 06:42:24
Ed some of the Adidas kits were brilliant that 06/ 07 kit was my favourite though.

{Ed001's Note - they were generic and exactly the same as every other team wearing Adidas, just slightly different colours. That is not brilliant.}

Just read that Fabinho and Shaqiri are set to return to training this week and should be available for the weekend. Not sure how accurate that is but a massive boost if that's the case.

News on injury's seems to be very slow on coming through out of the club of late, especially with Keita and Ox, I think a few of us was surprised to see Ox yesterday such was the lack of news coming through on injured players.

Let's hope these 2 come back into the squad fir the weekend.

1.) 06 Jan 2020 22:32:04
Brilliant news, OP.


2.) 06 Jan 2020 22:44:14
I don't understand the obsession with updates on injured players, players that are injured will be back when they are ready. The club could give hourly updates on injured players but it still won't make them come back quicker.


3.) 06 Jan 2020 23:02:36
Doesn't really worry me if we're in the dark regarding return dates for injured players OP . If we're in the dark the opposition are in the dark also, they can prepare for X line up but an hour before kick off low and behold it's Y line up .


4.) 07 Jan 2020 08:18:22
We're probably kept in the dark so that the opposition stays in the dark too. Can't be more simple.


 

 

05 Jan 2020 20:09:38
Another injury this time to Milner. Hamstring. Dropping likes fly's Ed001, should we be worried about the injuries affecting our PL pursuit? Do you think Jones can come into consideration fir the first team?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - the kids have shown they are capable of stepping up if needed, no need to panic.}


1.) 05 Jan 2020 20:43:36
The Ox came back today so it’s one in, one out. We’re no worse off. Relax.


2.) 05 Jan 2020 21:05:24
I’d be fine with a midfield of hendo gini and Chirivella/ Jones or Minamino even if needed. If we started a prem game with Elliot firmino and mane, I wouldn’t be worried. If neco started right back with Gomez vvd and Robbo, it would be fine.


3.) 05 Jan 2020 21:06:05
I think it should only be seen as an exciting thing after Curtis Jones, Pedro Chiravella and Neco Williams' performance today.

These kids are ready. It's only the fact that the first team is so bloody good that they're not getting the opportunities.


4.) 05 Jan 2020 21:16:41
Pedro Chiravella’s passing is excellent but physically I don’t think he would be able to cope in the premier league. The 2 center backs were exposed a little today but lucky enough Everton didn’t have the quality to take advantage! But the only way to find that out for definite is to give him a chance! Nate Phillip’s played a lot better at RCB than on the left but it’s hard to see him making it at Liverpool.


5.) 05 Jan 2020 20:48:00
Ok Ed? Wish I shared your confidence mate lol. Milner could be a serious one Klopp said.


6.) 05 Jan 2020 22:11:37
Milner hasn't featured as much as last season, especially in the pl. He's a big miss of course but we have keita, hendo, gini, aoc, Jones, minomina all available for cm with fab back soon.


7.) 05 Jan 2020 22:47:32
We would be fine if we played Everton every week.


8.) 06 Jan 2020 01:32:25
Coz we're having trouble against the rest eh I dreamofgini.


9.) 06 Jan 2020 10:18:40
I just hope we can have Fabihno and one or the center backs back fit soon. Our Midfield and central defense have played a lot without any rest.

Glad VVD gets a 9 day break though.


10.) 05 Jan 2020 23:37:21
Ed01, I thought the kids did great, who do you think out of the kids is most ready to step up into the first team?

{Ed001's Note - William's for me. Though it would be the hardest spot to contest.}


11.) 06 Jan 2020 13:54:57
Totally agree ed01. Maybe trent finally gets played further up? Anyway, you need two rbs. I think trent would be our biggest miss. He is definitely winning young player of the year, I reckon he may win pfa too.

Who are people's opinions on seasons best players so far Who will get it? Mane? I honestly think hendo has a shout. I bet he makes the shortlist.

{Ed001's Note - Hendo or Trent for me, though all of them deserve it.}

No didn’t mean that meant interest in the player but tbh I wish I hadn’t of got sucked into the conversation Ed, I shouldn’t of asked. I no the answer before I typed it. My bad.

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - There may well be interest in replacing Firmino with Werner - and obviously Klopp has a serious interest in tapping players up. Maybe he has done again in this case.}

Sadly not true Dhfc. No interest in the player and he won’t come to us to sit in the bench mate. Another fantasy story someone has made up.

Ed025 It’s funny that people are still pointing out that the naming change of the Premier league, it’s almost all non Lfc fans have left to hang on to mate. Funny how no one ever seems to mention that the European Cup changed names to the Champions League in the 92/ 93 season? Do you no why that is mentioned much mate? I tell you why it’s because Liverpool have won it in both.

What will you bitters and every other rival fan on the planet have left to say about us Reds if we do go on to lift the trophy on May mate?

But but but VVD got dribbled past in 3games? Or Trent has 300 Assists but he can’t defend? Lol. I like you Ed025 you usually fait mate and appreciate your opinion but would be interested in why you think no one mentions the name change on the Champions league mate?

Simple answer would be cos Lfc have won both?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed025's Note - because it would say you have only won it twice virgil.. and that would make me sound bitter mate..

Liverpool12350, Tonali interest is old and from last Summer mate. He ya a CM or DM player of which we are well stacked with. With Dembele Ed002 has advised we have enquired with Barcelona how much he would cost and probably been told €100M. Nothing else has been said in him but imo it’s strange we would enquire on a player of that value when he would arguably not start ahead of Salah or Mane.

I asked Ed on him but basically nothing more at this stage mate. However the fact we asked about him there must be a certain level of interest there.
