Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?

1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.

3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32

4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.

5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.

6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.



06 Jul 2015 15:52:35
Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.

2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.

3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market

4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.

5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got

6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.

7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke

8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.

9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.

10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!

11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}



14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}

1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}

2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!

3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.

4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.

5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}

6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.

7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.

8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

The more I see and hear of Raheem Sterling the more I'm just glad that he was at a time one of our players. Seems like a really decent fella.

1.) 11 Sep 2019 16:57:47
He's alright, Raheem.

Wasn't plussed with his agent at the time, but let's face it, we badly mishandled the whole thing. Nearly certain the first person to open their mouth in public on his contract saga was Brendan Rodgers.

But y'know, he's doing well at City, and we have Mane and Salah and thus don't need him. Good outcome for all in the end.

2.) 11 Sep 2019 20:16:52
Purely football, I believe Mane and Salah are way better than Sterling. We got better players after he left and he went to a team that valued him, and still values him, highly. So it worked out well for all parties concerned. I don't see the need to beat ourselves over it or point fingers at management at the time. 50 Mil was a damn good deal back then and it still is.

3.) 11 Sep 2019 21:17:00
We ended up with firmino as a replacement so I'm not fussed about him myself. I do enjoy the reception he receives at anfield though.

4.) 11 Sep 2019 23:44:16
He seems to have really grown up over the last couple of years and become a top notch player and role model. He's definitly a top bracket player now but like something red says if he hadn't of gone to City we may not have had mane or salah today.

5.) 11 Sep 2019 23:44:24
To be fair I think all three of them are quality everyone will have a different opinion on who is the better player but mine is Mane.

6.) 12 Sep 2019 00:30:23
Matured both on and off the field and turned himself into a hell of a player. I still don't rate his striking technique but he's getting better and better and played himself into a very strong city team. For our set up I prefer Salah and Mane. But best of luck to the lad I'm over what happened and have been particularly impressed but his off the field conduct.

7.) 12 Sep 2019 12:14:22
you obviously don't live in Huyton.

8.) 12 Sep 2019 15:07:05
He’s still very much a system player for me, which is a positive or a negative depending on how you view football. He has superb positioning, times his runs well and is very strong for his size, but he is not a top bracket player by any stretch.
You wouldn’t swap Salah, Mané, Hazard et al for Sterling.



09 Aug 2018 22:25:28
Great window for us. So now all heads turn to who will leave. I see the following:
Migs, Randall, Grujic, Chirivella, Ojo, Markovich and Origi. Perhaps Solanke on loan.

Personally, and many might disagree, but I would still love to see Grujic staying and getting some games. I know he won't start many and the cover for the first team midfielders will likely be Wini and Milner, but I really do think this kid has talent and I feel we could be be doing a KDB, Matic, Pogba equivalent by not playing him and losing him at some point.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 23:55:01
I agree West wood.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 06:11:41
Grujic is nowhere near their level IMO.

Ed1 said he’s never knuckled down and shown a self entitlement to play without effort on the training ground. Cardiff has the same frustration with him too.

Talent but a really poor attitude by all accounts and he’s achieved nothing in his career at a good level to begin to justify that attitude.

We made a huge mistake saying he’d get game time to pass his work permit and that part is on us.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he is even that good. Get rid.}

3.) 10 Aug 2018 06:11:53
I think Grujic is probably there technically, but may not have the mentality to be a top draw player in the long run. Comes across as somewhat lazy at times and also has a hot head.
I hope many of the lads you mentioned get a loan or permanent move, for their sake and ours. If we can get another 30M+ from Mignolet, Origi, Chirivella - Mr. Edwards will be my new god!

4.) 10 Aug 2018 07:19:44
Don’t know why we didn’t let him go to Cardiff.



07 Aug 2018 23:13:35
Hey ed001. How do you think pre-season has gone? Any players in particular stood out to you or made a case to start/ be in and around the squad when maybe we thought they wouldn't be?

For me, Sturridge is looking good. Yes the pace is gone, and he's always scored goals when fit, but he actually looks very sharp at the minute and a part of the team and I think has played his way back ahead of Solanke. Any thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - I haven't been watching pre-season as it is meaningless. It is only about getting players fit and firing ahead of a new season.}

1.) 08 Aug 2018 07:07:05
Hi ed1,

I thought it a bit strange that at no point this pre-season has anyone got more than 60 mins under their belt. I would of thought the first 11 would need close to a full 90 before the season starts. Or does it bear no relevance?

{Ed001's Note - bears no real relevance, they should be doing all their fitness work in training.}

2.) 08 Aug 2018 07:20:03
Ok cool, thanks Ed.

I think Klopp has been working the sh@t out of them during training and they’ve looked leggy in some of the friendlies as a result.

Buzzing for the weekend! The wife and I go on holiday and she’s a hammer so Day 1 could well set the tone for the holiday 😅.

{Ed001's Note - that could be a fun holiday....}



23 Jun 2018 10:09:08
Hey eds. usual rumours everywhere about Allison and Fekir. However I'm more interested in cover/ competition for Salah and & Mane. Moses Simon has been linked quite strongly with us previously. Do we have any serious interest or do you think it's more likely that Ojo, Kent and Wilson may be given a chance? Do you have any thoughts on Simon as a player and a preferance on cover for those positions? Only ask as I think we were quite lucky keeping them both fit after Phil left and we look much better when both are playing than when one is out.

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained previously about Moses Simon. Obviously Shaqiri is the one being asked about now, but that makes little sense to me. Kent will likely get a loan, perhaps Wilson as well. Ojo has no future at Liverpool and will get a loan or perhaps even be sold.}

1.) 23 Jun 2018 13:46:09
Will look back through posts on Moses Simon as iv missed that. A shame that the young lads likely won’t progress with us as I think there’s some quality there. Thanks 02 have a good weekend.



06 Jun 2018 18:46:02
With all this talk of a potential new keeper, I genuinely hope that we take a look at Leno from Leverkusen. Admittedly I haven't seen much of him but he seems to have a good rep and is highly thought of. Anyone got a better idea of what he's like?

{Ed002's Note - Leno is heading elsewhere.}

1.) 06 Jun 2018 18:49:11
Oh well. Cheers for the heads up Ed002.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 20:36:17
Rubbish in the air, unsuitable to the premier league 🤝.

Gerrard this far has done nothing to suggest he should be our manager. It does not strike me as coincidence that when we hire proven league winners (Rafa, Dalglish, Klopp) we have had success in the way of winning trophies, whereas others have been pretenders despite their best efforts. If Gerrard can put Rangers consistently on top in Scotland, get them into CL group stages and playing good footy againts some top European sides like Celtic were a few years back, then that might be enough to sway me. Can’t see that happening in the next 3 years though!

Fair nuff. Maybe it’s because Iv been looking foward to him coming through for years in the same way I did Sterling and again now with Brewster, but I still think there’s something special there in him. Whether with us or elsewhere, I guess time will tell.

I think he’s done enough to be part of the squad this season personally. He can cover wings and centrally and is clearly talented. If it doesn’t work then fine, but I see no point in signing a player like Cornet who we’v been linked with rather than to at least give a homegrown player a chance. Maybe he’s not going to make the grade, or maybe he isn’t hard working enough for Klopp, but he certainly isn’t crap Ed. Some players come good and/ or improve given the chance and I think he deserves at least 6 months in and around the first team squad.

{Ed025's Note - thats just my way of saying that i dont think hes good enough westwood, i say it about everton players as well, just a personal view though mate..

I think, or would like to hope anyway, that most people realise that a lot can change very quickly, and that the Eds might say something that is 100% true when they say it, and it goes the other way a day later. It happens, doesn't mean what is said wasnt right at the time. This place is my go to for anything LFC related, as been for years and can't see that changing anytime soon. That reminds me I need to contribute at some point.

I don't think a player has changed my opinion of them as much as Milner has done since he has been with us. What a pro, what consistent effort and love for the game in general and just gets on with the job wherever he is asked to play, even when he is open about his preferences. I would move heaven and earth to keep him at LFC now and will be gutted if he decides to move on.

This was gone over in another thread a few weeks back but still interesting. let's face it, we have tried to with both playing a managerial staff to give upcoming talent/ potential a chance to succeed on the big stage and it hasn't worked. When we buy/ employ proven quality and winners? Guess what we're back in the big time and were narrowly beaten to the title by only 1 point by another quality side.

However comes in when JK leaves, whenever that may be, absolutely must be proven winner of the highest quality. Im talking winning big competitions. a lot can chnage in 3 years though and its difficult to name names ATM as honestly I wouldn't swap Klopp for anyone. I certainly can't see SG being the man to take over though.

Jesus, sometimes I think you should just tell everyone that Klopp is Jesus reborn and a cut if all LFC player sales goes towards building toilets in Africa. Some people will never be happy.

{Ed002's Note - I have a great story about his wrecking the career of a player he wanted to recruit and promised to pray with.}

As above, I did my ligaments and it ended my military career. But Ox will have the best medical staff available looking after him unlike us normal folk. Yes ligaments can effect players pace and power, but this is usually more down to a mental aspect of fearing re-occurrence of injuries and subconscious body movements to compensate for perceived weaknesses.

There are plenty of examples of players being just fine after severe ligament injuries. Take Callum Wilson as a most recent example. Blokes in the form of his life.
