Ed002

Any interest is Houssem Aour as an alternative to Kai Havertz, if Liverpool don't pursue Havertz.
Aour is being reported by the Liverpool Echo today regarding interest.
Any truth?

Hope all is well!

{Ed002's Note - There is certainly interest in him but not from Liverpool at this time.}

From what I have heard we have stopped watching him.

ED002

hope your'e well!

Your last post regarding Federico Chiesa was in September, since then there have been more articles circling of Liverpool very interested in Chiesa as of late. Coincidence?
Has there been any change of stance from Liverpool in the past two months as you mentioned we've shown no interest?

Also would Chiesa only be an option for Liverpool of one of our front three were to depart?
I really like his movements and goal threat, he's got certain traits of Aguero, tevez, Suarez.

Much appreciated

{Ed002's Note - I think this was the last thing I wrote about Federico Chiesa being a potential replacement for Salah: "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."

As far as I am aware, Liverpool have still not made any approach to Fiorentina for Federico Chiesa. However interest in him from elsewhere remains and it is still the intent if Inter to push for a move for him as soon as they can. And that is the move the player has wanted. Sarri desired the player when at Napoli and he wants to improve his options at Juventus but it would mean moving on both Douglas Costa and Bernardeshi first. Napoli is in turmoil and unattractive to players. Prior interest of Milan and Roma has gone due to the asking price.}


1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:32:59
Is Chiesa right footed means eother move mane or play him right side making him completely different to salah


Although may not be a good thing considering salahs form.


2.) 07 Dec 2019 05:03:29
Chiesa is such an exciting player! I would absolutely love to see him at Liverpool.

ED002,

Hope you're well!

Its been a while since my last post.
Liverpool obviously didn't end up getting that left sided mid that possibly you mentioned could happen.

I have a feeling with info being read on this page and other jornos this could potentially be Salah's last season. If so, the club should be able to pocket a sum over $100mill pound for him. I've been very conservative with that amount, as I've read many reports and his valued much higher.

Who can you see Liverpool going for to replace Salah if he were to leave that you feel we would not only have the money to do so and the club would be willing to listen.
Obviously it would then come down to the player, but it would be difficult of me to ask of you what the player wants :)
Also that Left side, mid position that u mentioned we could fill the transfer market that just passed. Who could you see there also?

Much appreciated.
Love your work

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Hi Tommy. 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 will depend on youngsters developing and how Gomez does. 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.

1.) 26 Aug 2019 09:49:58
Thanks for the in depth response, very much appreciated, and also listing a name. Its very amusing with Salah kissing babies and swooning girls with twisted ankles hahaha very good!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Tommy.}


2.) 26 Aug 2019 10:35:48
Informative and amusing Ed02, I don't know if its normal practice for these players, but it smacks of desperation and trying too hard to get noticed.
Kissing babies and rescuing swooning girls, Salah will be wearing a cape and his pants outside his trousers next. (red pants of course) .

{Ed002's Note - It is far from normal practice for players to go to such extremes to boost their profile, but Salah has an agent who is pushing all of this rather than the player - but the player is of course partaking in it.}


3.) 26 Aug 2019 11:40:41
Poor kid, who punched him to get that shot then? Or was it ketchup?

{Ed001's Note - hey if it got him a picture with Mo he would have gone in the ring with Tyson in his prime! At his age I would have too.}


4.) 26 Aug 2019 14:29:16
I know it's a long way down the line, but would Sancho ever be considered as Salah's replacement if he were to leave?

I know he gets a lot of hype because he's English but I reckon Klopp would mould him into a mighty fine player.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have shown no interest in him whereas another club has - you are clutching at straws about a random name I am afraid Eric.}


5.) 26 Aug 2019 16:12:37
Ed002, thank you for the responses.
Just one question - what is Salah’s/ Salah’s agent’s motivation for going to such lengths to boost his profile?
I could be going way off track here, but is it just earning potential or does he have certain aspirations for after he retires, such as some kind of political role in Egypt?
It is rare for sports personalities to become politically involved post-career but not unheard of.
He is fast on his way to becoming one of Liverpool’s all-time great players, and perhaps he is too far into his career to do the same for Real Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - It is all to do with selling the poster boy and getting the player to a higher prifile club.}


6.) 26 Aug 2019 17:16:48
Ed 002,

I realise you could tell me to cart off to the European pages but could elaborate on the Real first choice forward for next summer? Just checking it's not mane?


7.) 26 Aug 2019 17:47:18
Mbappe.


8.) 26 Aug 2019 18:49:11
They want mbappe, PSG are trying to pay him so much money that he becomes unaffordable.


9.) 26 Aug 2019 16:56:04
Ed002. I get the attraction for Salah wanting to play for Madrid. Nicer city, great weather ect but do you think there is anything Liverpool could do to change salahs mind like a bumper new contract or some guarantees that would convince him to give his prime years to Liverpool or is Madrid the dream and we just have to get use to Salah won't be around too much longer?

{Ed002's Note - Players are transient employees of a club, and clubs really should not look to but the bank making wxceptions. Right now he is stuck in the best place to be stuck - Liverpool breaking the bank to keep him will make other players miffed. I don't see him going anywhere right now as I said - Real Madrid want another player going forward.}


10.) 26 Aug 2019 17:16:48
Ed 002,

I realise you could tell me to cart off to the European pages but could elaborate on the Real first choice forward for next summer? Just checking it's not mane?

{Ed002's Note - Mbappe - there has not been a secret about it. PSG will look to fend it off.}


11.) 26 Aug 2019 22:15:07
Ed002. Cheers for the reply. Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


12.) 26 Aug 2019 22:33:43
ED002, hope you are well. Interested in your comment about Salah and his agent and seeking a higher profile club.

Admittedly from a position of ignorance, I would say Liverpool's profile is possibly been the highest it has ever been, so what does our profile lack what Madrid's has and is matching that only achievable through sustained success on the pitch?

Talking about club profiles, would it be fair to suggest Madrid, Barcelona and Man Utd are top tier for club profile, with the likes of Liverpool, Bayern and Juve in the next group? If so, can you see any teams moving in terms of profile and popularity?

Appreciate your time and any response.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has won one cup - their profile has been much higher in the past when they would be challenging and winning most years. The club has very much changed direction now and is looking to buy success - and Klopp has gone back on his word and is right behind this. Salah wants to play for Real Madrid (or Barcelona, Juventus or PSG as they have been meeting with each of these clubs. Real Madrid wants a new poster boy still - as they haven't had one since Ronaldo. A PR agency has been working on aggresively upping the player's profile for at least a year - he went on "holiday" this summer with someone from the agency and a professional photographer in tow. They have arranged the "man of the year" nonsense, had him giving interviews about "women's rights" and a bunch of other stuff. Maybe people would have a different view if they knew of the reason for missing the Egypt games in the Spring or someone were to bring up an issue from July 2013. Right now he has no where to go even though all of the efforts to move on have happened.

Sorry but your list makes little or no sense.}


13.) 27 Aug 2019 00:20:09
An interesting discussion, enjoyed reading.


14.) 27 Aug 2019 12:50:22
That 2013 issue to do with handshakes against an Israeli side by any chance ED002?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - but he gave assurances to Chelsea that the whole matter was behind him when he signed.}


15.) 27 Aug 2019 20:04:50
So, this has been touched on before -on here, I think a few years ago, how desirable is Liverpool seen as a club from a player's perspective?

I get that some of those clubs mentioned have won a lot of trophies but is PSG really more desirable than Liverpool at this point? Ligue 1 is pretty much a one horse race these days, with the odd blip. Same as Serie A.

I think we all get the glitz and glamour of La Liga's big 2, and it would probably take a long time for that to change.

In any case, what would it take for a club ours to be more desirable? One league title and another CL? Two?

Is it more than just trophies?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I'd love to hear from both Eds 1&2 on this as you have equally interesting but different views.

Any of the other EDs also?

{Ed001's Note - there is no answer to this, each player is an individual and will see things differently.}


16.) 27 Aug 2019 21:19:56
Regarding salah and potential replacements it's hard to predict what will be in 12 months, his form could drop, likes of vinicious Jr, rodrygo, jovic, asensio could turn into superstars and mbappe surely being no.1 target would leave salah unimportant. Other few big clubs who'd even have the money to spend on him might not need him either.

Guessing a player we could sign in replacement can change big time over 12 months, every year guys like Felix, sancho, mbappe breakthrough out of nowhere.
No point in trying to figure anything out just yet, let's enjoy Mo while he continues to do what he did to arsenal while he's here.


17.) 27 Aug 2019 23:34:23
Whisky, it’s Mbappe who Real want, they’re desperate for him to be their big name attacking signing next summer.


18.) 28 Aug 2019 11:53:00
Things Liverpool need to do to catch up with Real, Barcelona etc:

Win the Premier League, compete for the UCL and PL consistently for the next 5 years+, expand the stadium to 60k+, build the brand, keep hold of and bring in high profile players and keep a high profile manager consistently.

That would be a good start. Still a long way to go!


 

 

07 Jul 2019 01:32:13
ED002,

Dani Ceballos continues to be linked with Liverpool this market. I recall a previous Macca mention, which he thought he was going to Liverpool last year. Is this just old recycled news from the media or do you see valid interest in the player?
The articles are saying Klopp and Pochettino both rate him.

Much appreciated.

Tommy T.

chowchowtoma

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have shown an interest before, particularly looking to taking him on loan but nothing came of it. He is still not wanted at Real Madrid and is being offered around now, and I would expect Liverpool may be one of the clubs to be approached. Certainly there has already been a discussion with Spurs and West Ham enquired after a loan with an option to buy. The issue is where would he fit in a packed Liverpool midfield? Are Liverpool looking for a Keita replacement? Certainly there are discussions going on right now that could see him and Eriksen switch clubs as Madrid are trying to shut down a couple of deals with English sides in the coming days.}


1.) 07 Jul 2019 03:35:33
Ceballos makes zero sense to me. He plays in a position where we are literally stacked with 6 senior players vying for 3 spots. He would have an even bigger headache getting into our midfield than Real's. Makes sense for him to got to Spurs as a replacement for Wanyama or Eriksen (depending on Poch's plans for him) .


2.) 07 Jul 2019 02:02:05
thanks heaps I'm always so impressed with your knowledge.

have great weekend!

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}


3.) 07 Jul 2019 11:49:48
Are any of those deals Real are looking to shut down with English aides happen to be with Liverpool Ed2?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


4.) 07 Jul 2019 12:10:39
Thanks Ed much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


5.) 08 Jul 2019 13:17:59
Keita struggled at times last season, Injuries didn't help and he's not really had a run of games does anyone know when he's fit, and if he's in the pre season set up?


 

 

04 Jun 2019 12:53:48
ED002/ ED001

Reports are that Liverpool will compete in the FIFA Club world cup in December in Qatar. are these articles true?
As previously it was suggested it wouldn't occur for another few years.

I can see this having a negative impact on our season and the previous prize money for winning this tournament was $5mill.
Doesn't seem like a tournament that you would want to play in which clashes with the season and could cost the club from winning the title, what's your knowledge of this and does the club have to attend?

Much appreciated.

chowchowtoma

{Ed001's Note - the club do not seem to want to play in it but look to have no option. FIFA are indeed intending to hold it in Qatar this year.}


1.) 04 Jun 2019 13:01:09
Send the under 21s.


2.) 04 Jun 2019 13:02:50
ED001 what happens if the cub weren't to attend?

Just a fine?

{Ed001's Note - FIFA have the power to ban clubs.}


3.) 04 Jun 2019 13:16:11
We would be fined more than we could afford too be apparently if we jibbed it .


4.) 04 Jun 2019 13:32:16
Why don’t we just go an treat it like a training camp? Only two games, we can bring enough players to have one game each.


5.) 04 Jun 2019 13:43:43
I read somewhere that Liverpool would get somewhere in the region of £50mil for taking part. So this alone would be better than the $5mil for winning. Is this true Ed’s?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt the money has been decided yet.}


6.) 04 Jun 2019 15:29:35
why would n't the club attend, I don't think there are any intentions of the club not to attend, If its schedule issue, send most of the under 21s . there are no obligations to which squad you send . and like RedKieran said its financially rewarding . don't know the exact figure but its considerable.

{Ed001's Note - there are obligations. There are also issues of scheduling, no one giving a toss about the tournament, where it is being held just to start with. And you have no idea if it is financially rewarding, certainly the previous editions were not exactly helpful for Madrid who won the last 3.}


7.) 04 Jun 2019 16:00:07
If we did go and play in it Ed could we not just send the U21 and fringe players, or would that be classed as unfair?

{Ed001's Note - no we couldn't.}


8.) 04 Jun 2019 16:16:02
Owe ok mate. I guess if we’re in it then might as well try and win it.


9.) 04 Jun 2019 16:25:31
{Ed001's Note - ., where it is being held just to start with. }

====================================
Genuine question why you are not happy with Doha, considering the alternative is either Dubia which is more or less the same or Yokohama which much further longer journey, was there 14 years ago in 2005, was very cold and not very well organised .
What will be interesting if a Saudi or UAE club wins the asian cup.

{Ed001's Note - Dubai is nothing like it and not the alternative anyway. Yokohama was not an alternative either.}


10.) 04 Jun 2019 19:18:39
I believe it is the 2021 edition which they plan to give participants £50 mil. This year's edition is considerably less however champions of the world sounds very appealing and the prize money should stil be more than Caraboa Cup for a fraction of the amount of games.


11.) 05 Jun 2019 10:32:11
Trophy is a Trophy. Win it!


12.) 05 Jun 2019 19:48:15
The reported prize money for winning the final of the CL was £16m or something like that. Obviously it stacks with the money earned for making the final and semi and quarters etc so overall Liverpool would have won a lot more. So I somehow doubt the prize money for the club World Cup would be anywhere near 50m.


13.) 10 Jun 2019 01:38:07
Isn't a winter break of some sort being introduced to England this year? If so and with this comp due in mid December, shouldn't be much of an issue, in fact be a good chance for klopp to maybe experiment or try out some ideas he might be thinking of mid season. Players may benefit from a couple of games and others can be rested if needed. We're the champions of Europe, these games are included with that honour.

Many posters cry out for Brewster Hoever Lewis etc to gain experience in domestic cups. This is a good potential opportunity to give them playing time too.

Hope you're well!

Three weeks ago you mentioned there was no interest in Timo Werner from Liverpool.
Can you please check if things have now changed as Bild German publication have mentioned Timo prefers Liverpool over Chelsea.

Only way I can see this happening is if Salah wants to move on as his already won a UCL and looking like a PL this yr, and wants a new adventure.

Thanks
Tommy T.

chowchowtoma

{Ed002's Note - Obviously it means that he has been told Firmino would be leaving then. Are you suggesting that Liverpool have met with him illegally and have been tapping himup?}


1.) 21 Jan 2020 08:19:42
Yep I saw Klopp and Timo in Val’s cafe on Saturday. Both ordered a bacon and black pudding butty on a seeded white bloomer. Timo had brown sauce but Jürgen of course has red. I did here Klopp say get rid of Salah but he then proceeded throw his carefully prepared side salad (Val is a stickler) onto the floor.
Make of it what you will.


2.) 21 Jan 2020 09:27:11
The salah statement was pure hypothetical based on the BILD publication.
Based on your sources was curious if things had changed from three weeks.

You've taken what I've mentioned incorrectly.

Timo Werner can be used in multiple positions.

I take it based from your response, that nothing has changed.

thank you for your response.

Tommy T.

{Ed001's Note - you've read the German equivalent of the S*n and believed it. I give up. This site has clearly been a complete waste of time, people still think these tabloids are telling you the truth.}


3.) 21 Jan 2020 10:50:51
Thanks. Without listing all the articles it seems to be everywhere at the minute.

But this has always been my sight that I look to for info.

Anyways all good. I'll take the Timo info as garbage.

Have a good day.
Tommy T.

{Ed001's Note - he wants to go to Bayern we have said that over and over on here.}


4.) 21 Jan 2020 11:48:12
I don’t think his ears couldn’t handle a rollicking from Klopp if he didn’t play to perfection.


5.) 21 Jan 2020 11:50:22
We don’t need Timo Werner. Whilst we’re on transfers it also makes me laugh about the old Mbappé stuff. Especially people saying we’d never get him, he’s never sign for LFC and all this haha. It’s never happening but if it did, he’d still wouldn’t be the best player at Liverpool. For how good he is, Van Dijk is better.


 

 

10 Oct 2019 06:36:37
ED002,

Hope you're well mate!

On 21st Aug you mentioned Kai Havertz situation is mapped out with Bayern Munich making a move for 2020.

Just wanted to ask if the Coutinho situation could prevent this from happening, as it seems Bayern look like a much better side with coutinho in their side and he seems to have found his form again.

The sign on fee is rumoured to be around $105 mill pound, so being such a big price tag and if Bayern were to keep hold of him as I assume Barcelona will be looking to sell him next season would this affect their plans for Kai Havertz?

Great player I really hope Liverpool do make a move.

Thanks

Tommy T.

chowchowtoma

{Ed002's Note - Kai Havertz (AM) will likely move to Bayern Munich if the option on Philippe Coutinho is not taken up, but interest from elsewhere - particularly Barcelona (if Coutinho leaves), Manchester City (as a David Sila replacement) and Juventus (as a Dybala replacement) who will all push for a deal. The other clubs who have declared an interest and spoken with his club (PSG, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Chelsea) can be discounted. BAyern has a plan B in place as well.}


1.) 10 Oct 2019 15:06:19
So there’s a chance he will don the red kit of livepool!

I jest, I would love to see him in a Liverpool kit but I can’t see it happening.


2.) 10 Oct 2019 22:11:58
Pep said today that foden would be silva replacement and he’s the only player he wouldn’t sell, even for 500 million. Does that rule city out?

Strange comment though, so maybe just word games, but seems to be putting pressure on foden.

{Ed002's Note - No, of course not.}


3.) 12 Oct 2019 04:25:48
500 mil player that he only play for 6 minutes a game and the odd start in the carabao cup. Pep will spend big to replace silva.


 

 

05 Jul 2019 08:07:29
ED002,

Hope you're well mate!

Any intel you can give this page on discussions that Liverpool are having with Clubs that we're working on 'incoming' deals for? Any bids placed?
Im not sure if something is brewing or Liverpool are just waiting until the last couple of weeks of the market to see if price valuations potentially decrease.
Hoping you could elaborate.

Much appreciated.

chowchowtoma

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any discussions with clubs right now (aside from QPR over odds and ends related to Masterson) and Liverpool will not simply be waiting.}


1.) 05 Jul 2019 10:01:52
Do you think Liverpool could still be interested in bringing in a attacking mid or versatile forward, or have the focus moved to other areas if any?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - My expectations are that the club will look to a versatile attacking midfield player or wide player still.}


2.) 05 Jul 2019 10:12:52
Ok thank you.

I'm hoping something happens with Bruno Fernandes - wishful thinking I guess.

{Ed002's Note - The sale of Fernandes is being brokereed by his agent and not his club - and he has been in London for a couple of days last week and this.}


3.) 05 Jul 2019 10:31:54
Are we in discussion with his agent then ed002?

{Ed002's Note - There have been discussions with several clubs but right now the plan is he heads elsewhere.}


4.) 05 Jul 2019 11:17:09
Still to united i'm guessing.

I think there is just a bit of impatience at the minute from some fans.

Especially after getting FAB so soon last season.

Maybe the club are giving the youngsters pre season (similar to Karius last year before he went all instagram crazy that made us go for Alisson) before the club make any moves in the transfer window.


5.) 05 Jul 2019 11:29:11
Ouch! That hurts.


6.) 05 Jul 2019 11:22:11
From what you know of him Ed do you think he would be a good signing for Liverpool?

He is obviously an excellent player but I have only ever seen him play centrally and I really do think we need someone who can play wide to cover for Mane and Salah and push them if their form drops. Unless Ox could be used out wide perhaps?

I just see other players as more suited to Liverpool right now, what's your opinion?

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I don't expect him to be signing for Liverpool as things stand now but he is an AM and does not provide cover for the wings. He would also be a starter and Liverpool will be wary of making an expensive mistake. Regardless, Liverpool have been interested in him. I agree that there is a better option the club have an interest in who could proviude cover for the wings.}


7.) 05 Jul 2019 11:35:15
is that man utd then ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


8.) 05 Jul 2019 11:40:16
Still need a versatile wide player and full back unless the club plans to forfeit the domestic cups again this season.
Not that the domestic cups should be a priority but it would be nice to actually go into every competition with a view to winning it. Our team selection under Klopp in the domestic cups however does not reflect that.

{Ed002's Note - The club has never forfeited any cups.}


9.) 05 Jul 2019 12:02:50
"Forfeit the cups". The arrogance is astounding.


10.) 05 Jul 2019 12:07:43
Pepe for me all day. Although he'd want to be a starter.
I suppose everyone wants to be a starter.


11.) 05 Jul 2019 12:17:51
Who is the other option ED?

{Ed002's Note - Maxwel Cornet.}


12.) 05 Jul 2019 12:27:44
Now you've said that ed002, i give it 2 hours before someone has claimed we have bid for him!


13.) 05 Jul 2019 12:33:29
I have to ask you the cheeky question then Ed002. Who is the better option, the club has interest in? Im really running low on names, who can cover for both attacking mid, wings and forward, would come at a low-risk cost and furthermore not demand a starting spot. Sounds like an interesting player.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before about the players the club has shown an interest in such as Cornet and Fekir - but everyone has convinced themselves Mbappe, Pepe, Dybala et al are joining they have no interest in them.}


14.) 05 Jul 2019 12:39:42
Makes sense us not pushing for Fernandes imo Ed as he is like you say a AM player were we have plenty of options already including Keta. Cornet would make much more sense as he can cover either wing.


15.) 05 Jul 2019 12:48:54
Just interested Ed! What makes you think he is the better option? Is it because he is more of a winger and cheaper?

{Ed002's Note - Cornet and Fekir are far more versatile than Fernandes. Again, other players who have been watched like Arnaut Danjuma and Thorgan Hazard are all adept in more than one position.}


16.) 05 Jul 2019 12:52:56
Thanks very much for all the info ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Mark.}


17.) 05 Jul 2019 13:28:53
Ed002 does your thoughts remain that we could well go back in for Fekir then, Ed001 think it unlikely and Im aware his club Lyon are talking to other clubs trying to sell him on.

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely but would not rule it out. He is being offered around.}


18.) 05 Jul 2019 14:41:03
Even though Cornet and Danjuma are both exciting young players, none of them really aren't attacking midfielder, or? What are the chances we just give Wilson and Woodburn a go for AM and wide coverage this season?

{Ed002's Note - Cornet can certainly play as an attacking midfield and both can play on either wing. Ben Woodburn will not be at the club next season - and the club over priced Wilson blocking any sale and will take a look at him in pre-season - but they seem happy to move him on.}


19.) 05 Jul 2019 15:06:01
"unless the club plans to forfeit the domestic cups again this season". I'm speechless. After being one point off the title despite the fact that Fabinho was only introduced half way into the season and the Ox has to come back.

I literally can't wait for this transfer window to be over so I don't have to read nonsense like this.


20.) 05 Jul 2019 15:19:08
I think the only way we would go back to Fekir now would be if our attempts to sign the other more suited options fail and Fekir is still available towards the end of the window for a reasonable price.


21.) 05 Jul 2019 18:03:58
We didn't forfeit the domestic cups, but we did put out a weaker side in both competitions. But, regarding the league cup- all the top 4, top six now i guess, play youth players and reserves in the early rounds if not all rounds.

And it was similar with the FA cup last season.

Also, we didn't get easy draws. I think premier league teams in both. Wasn't it chelsea away and wolves away? Or was that one at home? Either way, both good teams.

I may have some of the facts regarding who knocked us out and where wrong. But I'll tell you one thing for sure; the eleven players we put out wanted to win the games and would've all put in 100% effort.


22.) 05 Jul 2019 20:49:15
Nobody forfeits the Cups. Thai is just nonsense. The fact that you put out a weakened team does not mean you forfeited a darn thing. As someone said, the arrogance of some fans on here, is astounding.


23.) 05 Jul 2019 21:02:54
now we have won CL I think its time we threw everything into winning the coca cola cup.

ED002

Hope you're well and enjoying your holidays!

Whats the latest with Timo Werner?
Bayern are still yet to sign do they have other players prioritised ahead of him.

If he were stay stay with RB Leipzig one more season and signing a contract extension could you see him coming in for Liverpool if we were to Salah? As I've read the past few years that Klopp is a big admirer of the young lad.

Much Appreciated

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - I would love an holiday but there are none on the horizon Tommy. Nothing has changed with Timo Werner. Bayern Munich have a third party looking to act for them but until they are closer on numbers nothing can happen - RBL will look to an extension. He is not a Salah replacement, perhaps a Firmino replacement.}


1.) 23 Jun 2019 08:02:55
Why is there a chance firmino might leave or move firmino down pecking order.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think so hailstones, i cant see liverpool getting rid of the 3rd best forward in the world...so indian buzzer tells us.. :)


2.) 23 Jun 2019 08:53:28
You are twisting my words now ed025. Messi and Ronaldo are the only forwards in the game that Klopp would be willing to alter his attacking formation for. Taking Bobby out of the team means that Mane and Salah may not be as effective either. If KLopp is willing to break up our front 3, then it would be for Messi or Ronaldo. And neither is realistic so Bobby is LFC's best option.
And he is better than Werner, Pepe, Richarlison, Dybala and the other names being thrown around for sure.

{Ed025's Note - i cant twist words that you have typed yourself IB, and the fact that you think bobby is better than those others you have mentioned is just your point of view im afraid...typical red tinted bias that sums up the modern day liverpool supporter i suppose mate..


3.) 23 Jun 2019 01:59:30
That's a shame no holidays. maybe Christmas time.

Cheers Love your work. Yes he does look more like a number 9.
I guess it's very unlikely to happen then as Firmino seems very loyal to the club and Klopp loves him.


4.) 23 Jun 2019 08:22:24
ed002 do you see Brewster being the long term replacement for Firmino. I see him moving a head off Origi this year if he is as good as everybody says and the club think he is. There must be something about him or at his age after the injury they would be looking for a loan this season but he does look like the man to replace Sturridge.

{Ed002's Note - No, not at all. They are members of the same squad.}


5.) 23 Jun 2019 09:46:30
Indian Buzzer
Better for our system does not make him better than those players you've named. For example you say only Messi or Ronaldo would cause Klopp to break up the front 3, Dybala is understudy to both at club and international level. So therefore by your own logic he HAS to be better than Bobby.


6.) 23 Jun 2019 10:31:49
Messi and ronaldo could take up the forward role in our team they could get into ANY team, im not taking anything away from Firmino and he does fit the system and helps knit the front together.


7.) 23 Jun 2019 11:30:02
Southern, you are right but currently we have Salah and Mane on 27 and 26 with Bobby on 16. Last season it was more like 44, 20 and 27! Can you say without any doubt that Ronaldo replacing Firmino would have no impact an how many Salah and Mane get? I don't think so personally. I think Messi is a different proposition because he can actually play as a false 9 so he'd take us to another level and I'd even say Mane and Salah would score more. The press might suffer but we'd probably score an extra 50 goals a season so it's more than worth it. That is Messi though. He's not human. He's also 32 however so you'd be trading 7 years of Bobby for 2 years of Messi. I'd still probably do it because that's 2 League titles in the bag in my opinion 😂

Bobby must be doing something right. Every fan base is just as biased and how many others would even debate if Messi and Ronldo were the only players who could improve them? PSG, Juventus, Barcelona and City I reckon. So if we're in the top 5 attacks in Europe I'm well chuffed 👍.


8.) 23 Jun 2019 11:47:16
Whose taking anything from Bobby? he's vital to how we play but to say he's top 3 in the world is ridiculous. There are many better strikers than him around Europe and to suggest otherwise is looking at it through liverpool tinted glasses.


9.) 23 Jun 2019 11:55:36
messi would help us walk through teams that park the bus.


10.) 23 Jun 2019 12:07:30
Take the "help us" out of that statement and it is still correct Faithinworks 😂.


11.) 23 Jun 2019 10:12:11
Ed025, great banter from you.

Firmino devides opinion but fact is that he will be able to wLk into any of the top teams right now.

He is not the most prolific goalscorer, but when it comes to creative output, game intelligence etc and playing the role of a false 9, he may not be on the same level as Messi but then again not many players are.

Firmino would be very difficult to replace for the role he plays in the first team. We would need to find another striker who is willing to work as hard for the team. Not someone standing and waiting for the ball to be delivered in the box.

{Ed025's Note - he does a great job max and all credit to him, he cant actually get into the brazil side on a regular basis though so maybe its not just me mate..


12.) 23 Jun 2019 13:54:10
haha true PB. purely in the attacking their he would force our one touch play around the box which I know our guys can do, but often settle for passing around the force field.


13.) 23 Jun 2019 13:32:06
Lol at Ed025 using Brazil's team selection to justify his point!
You lost all credibility with that. Firmino has and would have done more for the Brazil national team at the World Cup if he started instead of Man City's chosen No.9.

{Ed025's Note - thats subjective IB, but i have a strange feeling that the brazil national manager might just know a bit more about football than you and i mate.. :)


14.) 23 Jun 2019 17:13:06
Does the brazil manager actually get to pick the team these days ed?

{Ed025's Note - i would expect so rugby...mind you i expect he would consult liverpool supporters first...after all they seem to all be bloody know alls.. :)


 

 

12 Jun 2019 07:38:20
Looks like a very boring transfer market for Liverpool. we will be getting barely no1 while other teams strengthen.

Well I guess Ox is like a new signing and if Keita becomes the Keita of RB Leipzig we have a real sense of optimism going into the new season.

Wow. There's still months to go and almost no one else in the league has made any moves yet, talk about crying over spilt milk.


2.) 12 Jun 2019 10:49:29
Sorry Tommy T but give ya head a wobble pal. You’re the reason the Ed’s get so frustrated on here with inane posts like yours. Most teams will have to strengthen because they were so far off us and City last season so it’s inevitable. Doesn’t mean they will gel and win the league instantly. Man Utd, Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea are all in periods of transition. Trust in our team and manager. If we
Make one signing then this is enough for me as that’s clearly all they think is needed.


3.) 12 Jun 2019 10:49:11
Don’t really think any milk has even been spilt yet. Chill Winston!


4.) 12 Jun 2019 11:58:57
@IronDan Talk about not knowing how to use the phrase "crying over spilt milk"

! in the had is worth 2 in the bush after all!


5.) 12 Jun 2019 12:24:22
I think he meant crying over shooting a row of ducks in a barrel.

And yeah Tommy T. you need to chill mate. The main thing is keeping this team together, but we will sign some players and have an even stronger squad. City will lose some players that they'll need to replace. There are two major international tournaments coming up and two months of the transfer window left. Trust our recruitment team, they've done great work lately.

You're right klucas87, I meant to have said making a mountain out of a mole hill. I meant to suggest he was massively blowing this out of proportion.

Careful IronDan, too many proverbs spoil the broth (or something to that effect)


8.) 12 Jun 2019 15:08:04
Didn't realise the transfer window closed this week.


9.) 12 Jun 2019 15:09:38
Spurs got to the CL final without making a signing, so guess what our squad could do? Saying that, I expect a few signings at least and it's so early atm, when you think the Nations League has only just finished and Euro qualifications going on, let alone the players on their hols!


10.) 12 Jun 2019 23:13:49
well, playing devil's advocate a bit, we needed to break world record transfer fees in successive seasons to get us where we are. so, in that respect there is a bit of a trend in terms of how we have added key pieces to the squad. SO I get the angst of some.

The salah statement was pure hypothetical based on the BILD publication.
Based on your sources was curious if things had changed from three weeks.

You've taken what I've mentioned incorrectly.

Timo Werner can be used in multiple positions.

I take it based from your response, that nothing has changed.

thank you for your response.
