I loved the detail you put into your possible incoming transfers Ed002. Just wondering is it possible to get one for any outgoing deals? Or are we stuck with all them midfielders?

YnwaLFC7

{Ed002's Note - I have no time to provide any more than this right now:

Manquillo - the club may decide to pay up to return him to Spain, but I suspect he will stay.

Gerrard to Los Angeles.

I would very much expect Liverpool to sell Coates and Sunderland may be a viable option.

Brad Jones is going with his contract being cancelled and him paid off.

Glen Johnson is leaving this summer.

Lazio are showing an interest in Borini.

Sevilla would like to keep Aspas in Spain and will invoke the option to buy in his loan agreement. With them losing Gameiro this summer Aspas will get more playing time. Else they will look to sell him on for a small profit.

Alberto let himself and the club down last year and I am pretty sure he will leave this summer - there seems to be little interest in him.

Real Sociedad are keen to take Ilori on a permanent deal with Sunderland, Celtic and Hull also declaring an interest. Price needs to come down.

Sterling - the manager says he stays but I expect him to go. Manchester City are interested.

Liverpool will look to sell Balotelli in the summer but they need to reduce the price they are asking by some way. A number of clubs were approached in January but none were interested in a permanent deal at the price being asked. I suspect his representatives will focus on a return to Italy although have said how happy he is at Liverpool. Last year a sponsor tried to place him with another side once Milan were pissed at him and wanted him out - but that would no longer be an option. An alternative may be a Turkish side. Fiorentina and Inter are both open to discussing a deal for Balotelli and Sampdoria would be interested in taking him on loan, or perhaps to buy at the right price. We'll see what happens.

Two clubs, Bayern and Porto, were at the recent game at Stamford Bridge looking at Coutinho - but it has ended there as far as I know.}

Incredible work there eds, thanks.


Clearing the decks.
I just hope it all materialize, it should be positive for the club and hopefully the youngsters get an opportunity, however little.


2.) 12 Jun 2015 17:28:39
Thanks Ed002, great insight as usual.


3.) 12 Jun 2015 19:33:21
Aspas has now been sold to Celta Vigo by Sevilla


4.) 13 Jun 2015 01:39:43
Thanks for that Ed002. It was more than adequate. Great stuff.


5.) 13 Jun 2015 11:51:03
"Coutinho was watched at Stamford Bridge by scouts from Porto."

And, in other news, Messi was watched by scouts from Liverpool.

Eds,

William Carvalho, very expensive and there are bigger teams looking at him but is there any interest? We desperately need strength in this lightweight team.

YnwaLFC7

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool looked at the player at the start of last year but I am not aware of any interest right now.}


1.) 04 Jun 2015 14:59:42
Bigger team than Liverpool. ?
Bigger spend does not equate bigger team.


2.) 04 Jun 2015 20:17:35
There are probably 3 teams you can say are bigger. But every team in the top 10 of biggest teams haven't gone 25 years without winning the league. How big would we be if we won it?

Hi ed1

Just to build on the 'who you think will strive' post. I know Klopp likes to play with a defensive mid like Lucas. But they need to run around a lot. Just wondering if you think he still has the legs to play this role. Because he is fantastic imo but just a bit cautious about his role in there with his injuries and age

YnwaLFC7

{Ed001's Note - I think his brain allows him to not need to run around as much, but I am sure he is fully capable of doing so if needed.}


1.) 10 Oct 2015 09:34:28
I am not so sure he only plays with a defensive midfielder who "runs around a lot". Sebastian Kehl didn't run that much and he was their captain under Klopp for a long while until Bender came through and Kehl was where Kolo is now, aged and near retirement.


 

 

10 Oct 2015 00:41:16
Klopp previously tried to sign benteke at BVB. So I would assume he will be happy to have him. My question is this, because he likes to play a 4231 with benteke presumably up front, do you think Sturridge would have an issue playing on the right side of that attacking midfield 3? Even though traditionally klopp keeps those midfield 3 narrow so they can hit on the counter leaving the wing backs pushed higher up. So he's not exactly a winger but not exactly striker either. Also with his injuries do you think Sturridge can adapt to the intense pressure style?

YnwaLFC7

1.) 10 Oct 2015 01:11:56
I'm sure Klopp knows more than just the one formation.


2.) 10 Oct 2015 02:17:17
I remember in the season we came second with the narrow diamond formation coutinho player primarily right of the the three with sterling at 10. Maybe him or firmino could sit deeper allowing them to get on the ball more, with the other at 10, hendo/Milner the other side to press and Lucas sitting. Allows Sturridge and benteke up front with Ings an option too. More players in their right position and playing narrow defensively and counter attacking from deep With the likes of hendo and coutinho picking the ball up in our half


3.) 10 Oct 2015 03:35:49
I agree if I we play the diamond, we can play Lucas or Can at DM, Hendo or Milner at RM, Coutinho or Llalana at LM, Firmino behind the strikers and Studge and Benteke or Ings upfront. It would be a strong setup.

Most likely Klopp plays 4-2-3-1 but you never know, I'd be happy with either setup as we have more attacking mids that can score now (Firmino/Llalana and Coutinho's improved) compared 13/14 and we no longer have a Suarez to demand a spot next to Sturridge.


4.) 10 Oct 2015 08:43:25
I agree with you guys of course he can switch up formations. A manager has to be able to do that but I would be sure he will go with 4231 at first because that is what he knows. But his philosophy if you like is to use leeway-oriented counter pressing which involves having a narrowness in that midfield 3 with the full backs moving in behind the space. Benteke is more like lewandowski than Sturridge is. He can hold the ball up better. I think like ed001 said that Sturridge will thrive for the most part in the team but only as long as he has the mindset to press with the team. But I think he will be doing this from a right attacking mid/wing position. I would prefer him there personally, I just wonder if ed001 or you guys think he would be happy in that position given his insistence on playing centre forward all throughout his career. I'm just hoping the fact that he will be quite narrow and close to Benteke is enough to keep him from having a strop

{Ed002's Note - He left Chelsea because the club wanted to play him on the left and not as a centre forward.}


5.) 10 Oct 2015 09:08:10
You were supposed to comfort me and say "of course he will be happy to play there" ed002 haha. I'm just basing my opinion (I feel justifiably) on the fact that klopp uses those tactics I've mentioned and Sturridge's unwillingness to play out of a centre forward position which as ed002 just mentioned he was unwilling to do at Chelsea. But it's all just speculation cause who can actually know just yet? I'm just saying don't be surprised by anything. Besides I think he really can thrive in the attacking right mid position if that's where he plays and if he's scoring and assisting I think he will be happy.


6.) 10 Oct 2015 09:36:57
I doubt Sturridge will agree to playing out wide. He left Chelsea because they wanted him to play wide, and he refused to play out wide when Suarez was here, leading Rodgers to try the diamond. I think it pointless playing him wide as he is clearly way more effect up top.

If your good at reading the game your usually in the right place already without having to run like a mad man to try and get into position so I think Lucas will be fine.


2.) 10 Oct 2015 01:33:16
Exactly, Mikey!


3.) 10 Oct 2015 09:37:49
Kehl didn't run a lot, and Klopp had no problems playing him.

Have Balotelli, Borini and Enrique actually been forced to train alone? Have they done anything wrong other than being unwanted by the club to warrant this?

Any update on offers for the players eds?

YnwaLFC7

{Ed023's Note - They're locked in the caretakers office}


1.) 02 Aug 2015 12:08:26
That's a very poor act to train players alone. What's the difference between us and Sterling / Suarez now?


2.) 02 Aug 2015 12:33:56
Really? You think Suarez threatening legal action against Liverpool and Raheem Sterling's incredibly indecorous agent are comparable to LFC making a couple of players train on their own? Especially when you know of them has severe attitude issues and one of them is not interested in playing football.

Great comment Harry. Not.


3.) 02 Aug 2015 12:39:55
I wonder are the rest of the squad pretending there's nothing wrong while the poor lads are off dying in the tent.


4.) 02 Aug 2015 13:11:42
Ag

Mate what's the difference between a murder who killed 1 and another who killed 37? Under law it's pretty much the same.

Suarez and Sterling took us to gutter with their behavior, the club did pretty much a similar act against three unwanted players.

Balotelli might have attitude problem , But Borini and Enrique?

All Borini did was to try his luck at Liverpool and Enrique never troubled the club at all.

You are just finding an excuse to defend the club. What if the order was from BR, people would have killed him here.


5.) 02 Aug 2015 13:13:35
KDB had a similar attitude issue with Chelsea and so does Sakho when he storm out from the match day squad.

The club did nothing.

It's a very poor act to dump people when you are done with them.

That's all mate.


6.) 02 Aug 2015 13:40:20
I'm sure they'll be okay when their pay cheque comes in. If they're not part of the squad plans there's no point training with them


7.) 02 Aug 2015 14:09:56
EG, this happens in all clubs so stop treating them like they are in some kind of prison because they are not and they are being well paid for doing it while one player is being paid for being a tourist. Their services are not required and if they refuse to leave the club, then this is the consequence of their decision. Malouda spent a whole season at Chelsea with the U21s because he refused to leave so it happens hence, nothing to see here.


8.) 02 Aug 2015 14:49:31
redohio

Well if this is happening from decades then y did we jump out of the seat when Sterling refused to train with the rest?

All he did was forced a move out simple. that's exactly what the club are doing with the three here. Forcing them out.

Jovetic recently joined inter on loan and never featured for city last season, was he asked to train alone?


9.) 02 Aug 2015 15:03:41
Who has Balloteli murdered?


10.) 02 Aug 2015 15:48:41
Ha , all he did was force a move out , yes simple , only he turned millions of Liverpool fans against him , also I would think an awfull lot of neutral fans too ,
look , if a player is not interested in playing and giving 100 per cent , then he should not be training with the first team , being the bad apple and all that .


11.) 03 Aug 2015 01:04:12
EG, the diff is that Jovetic wants to go back to Italy and made it clear to the club, per Ed. Balo, Borini and Enrique don't wanna leave hence, they get stuck out to dry. See the diff?


 

 

28 Jun 2015 15:10:19
Hi Eds,

Was wondering if any of you have the spare time to provide us with any updates on possible outgoing players?

Also do Liverpool have any other striker targets besides Benteke now that Bacca is highly unlikely?

Thanks

Haha should have expected that but to be fair if you are aware of the Facebook group I am talking about, they do tend to try and report relatively accurate information. The Facebook page is just a way of sharing from their actual website. But yea I agree and didn't expect it to be true. Thanks Ed

On this subject, is Enrique leaving? I saw something on the 'this is Anfield' Facebook page saying he was on his way out. Not sure on the reliability but was hoping the eds had some information on this?

Just going to say that it seems your post is based on wishful thinking and being a Rondon fan. The facts you decided to include being the main pointer here. What is the speculation more precisely?

Haha, slightly off topic ed002. I was only asking about the general situation with th BPL only getting three spots in the champs league. But I definitely agree and can see what you mean. They really have poured a lot of money into tho club, whether wisely or not I guess we can debate (unwisely) but the mind has to wonder why they let Rodgers spend so much? I mean at what point did the doubt set in? Obviously they let him spend again this summer. It's either odd or just plain stupid. Anyway let's get back to a happy topic like having a fantastic new manager. Just hope the BPL and English media and fans let him be and he can hack the unnecessary pressure of managing Liverpool, where everyone says "yes let's give him a few seasons to get his stuff together" and then after a few bad results become reminiscent of the 80s and say we should be winning every year and then he gets sacked.

YnwaLFC7

{Ed002's Note - It seems unlikely to be an issue for 2016/17. Dropping to three places for next season will require the four English CL sides to do collectively significantly worse than the two Italian sides (worse plus four whole points). The four point differential gets wiped out at the end of next season so then it will become more significant.}

Yeah I worded that poorly ed001, hate typing on a phone but you answered exactly what I was thinking. I just wasn't up to date on when any of this could potentially happen. So thanks for the update as usual and for all the information you guys provide us with

YnwaLFC7

{Ed002's Note - The owners crave immediate success - they have invested year-on-year, plunged the club in to significant debt and now employed Klopp to make it happen because Rodgers couldn't. I read the scripts from Werner's two statements and he has made it clear that the owners are pissed that they have had no on field success and he expects the players they club has to respond better to Klipperty. They will be looking for an immediate improvement.}

Hi ed001 just wondering is there any sound information on this topic of top 3 getting champions league I.e timelines etc? Also is this as a result of people in football thinking the BPL has dropped in standards?

YnwaLFC7

{Ed001's Note - sound information? It is the UEFA rules for the competition, England's ranking has dropped and could lead to this being the last season of 4 qualifiers for the Champions League, unless the current bunch do a bit better than the usual.}
