Any interest in douglas costa ed? would be a good addition?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed025's Note - not as far as i am aware sirtoto, spurs and utd have been courting him mate but not liverpool..

29 May 2017 23:12:23
Would be certainly a quality addition.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 May 2017 00:41:10
Would be ideal for the left wing slot. If Brandt's stance on insisting a regular first team role does not change, then I say we go for Costa. Mane, Costa and 2 attacking fullbacks will actually give us a fighting chance against all teams that park the bus against us.

29 May 2017 18:52:18
keita has pretty much come out saying he is relishing the opportunity to play Champions league with Leipzig. Does that mean he isn't interested in joining Liverpool or is he just living in the moment?

Believable1 1Unbelievable

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are still very interested in him tadders but leipzig do not want or need to sell, it will be up to the player himself mate..

29 May 2017 19:27:15
Cheers Ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..

29 May 2017 19:44:09
Tadders in fairness mate he's not just going to come out and say blatantly that he definitely wants to leave, if a transfer fails to happen, than he's tarnished his relationship with the fans so it's best for him to say nothing on the potential transfer. He obviously wants to join us, it's just a matter of us convincing RBL to sell and paying the required amount. If klopp really wants him, he'll sign. Remember Coutinho saying he wants to stay at inter and fight for his place? Leipzig also have agreed a deal with a like for like replacement from their Austrian counterparts.

Agree4 0Disagree

29 May 2017 19:57:49
If you think he was going to come out say I'm leaving I give up on some people.

Agree0 1Disagree

29 May 2017 19:49:32
Any inclination to the players preference ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i dont echo, sorry mate..

29 May 2017 20:42:27
Sakho-what makes you think he definitely wants to join? The whole if Klopp wants him klopp will get him is rubbish, there is plenty of destinations he would pick over us.

Agree1 6Disagree

{Ed025's Note - im not sure about that craig, if he does leave leipzig im sure that liverpool would be high on his list mate..

29 May 2017 20:59:45
Like who cobra? He's Chelsea's third choice and Arsenal have stopped looking at him. He has the same agent as mane and he's also good friends with mane, so ya we're most definitely high on his list.

Agree3 2Disagree

29 May 2017 21:02:37
There are 4 teams in the premiership im pretty sure he would choose over us, maybe 5.
I'm not saying we're not an attractive proposition but to think klopp will get whoever he wants is wrong.

Agree1 5Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i dont think its a "klopp will get whoever he wants" thing craig, just that liverpool are in with a decent shout if he decides to leave mate..

29 May 2017 21:21:19
Okay, why would he have any interest in joining united who also have no interest in him. Spurs may be interested but can't afford his wages or the fee, Arsenal are out of the champions league and are looking for a defensively minded midfielder instead. He is Chelsea's third choice and Chelsea often get their main target and city have much more important needs to get done.

Agree4 1Disagree

29 May 2017 22:13:30
I'm not saying any of the other clubs want him I'm saying we are far from the top destination for players and it won't be as simple as klopp getting who he wants.
If Utd, Chelsea or City want a player we do we will rarely get them imo. I would still fancy him to choose Arsenal over us, even without champs league football. Spurs may not pay top wages but they are in a better position than us on the pitch and London life is a big pull for foreign players.

Agree1 3Disagree

29 May 2017 22:35:20
He obviously wants to join us? That's a bold shout. And bringing up Coutinho saying he wanted to stay at Inter before signing for us. Does that mean he's courting Barcelona because he said he wants to stay with us.

Agree2 0Disagree

29 May 2017 22:42:52
I'm sure Klopp wanted Goetze and Gundogen last season. That worked out well.

29 May 2017 22:50:16
A question for any of the Eds that might know, what were the results of Keita's supposed heart problems?
Thanks in advance.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - he collapsed during a game against wolfsberg in march polecat, he was diagnosed with blood circulation problems but its nothing that will affect his career mate..

29 May 2017 23:00:11
Ya I can see your point Craig but you've got to understand only one of the clubs you've mentioned are (a) interested and (b) not their preferred target so I have every right to feel confident.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 May 2017 23:01:50
Mane rejected spurs for us yo know.

He was at their training ground and that but they baulked at the 150k he wanted. So he came to us.

Shame because that would of been the title for them.

Imagine adding 15 more goals to that team.

Agree1 1Disagree

29 May 2017 23:04:44
A blood circulation problem may hamper his career i would have thought, but hope not!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - an asperin will sort that out gareth..

29 May 2017 23:43:32
In most cases like that an Asprin may not even be needed just a slight change to diet and close monitoring is the norm for circulation issues like that.

Zero to worry about you can be sure the dietician has sorted this already.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - thanks for that doctor savvy.. :)

29 May 2017 11:59:37
Rumour is that Digne is surplus to requirements at Barca, I know we have looked at him in the past, do we hold any interest in him presently?

Believable0 2Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

29 May 2017 13:09:53
Is he better than Moreno? I'm not sure.

Agree4 2Disagree

29 May 2017 15:18:04
I'd say he is a better defender than Moreno. I think he'd be a good addition to the squad. Digne as first choice with Sessenogn back up would be fine with me.

Agree5 2Disagree

29 May 2017 08:47:30
Eds, are we actually looking at Demarai gray. If so, is he seen as an alternative to salah?

Believable2 11Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine please.}

28 May 2017 22:19:06
Ed's 002 I won't beat around the bush. Do you think Keita and Brandt will be playing for Liverpool next season?

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea - I cannot predict the outcome of negotiations that have yet to happen. It is worth noting that in the case of Keita, as of Friday, Liverpool had spoken with two gentlement representing Keita but as of that time they had not made any approach to RB Leipzig. Another side has approached RBL to discuss Keita and have been told that he is not for sale. Whether or not they stay firm on that position is another matter - they could simply refuse to negotiate or someone to write to them making a very significant offer which they may wish to conside (but remember that they do not have any particular need for the money). So I have no why to be able to say what the outcome of that is.

In the case of Julian Brandt it is different. Liverpool are very keen on the player but Brandt does not want to move and simply end up on the bench. This is something that players will consider seriously when moving to higher profile clubs with a lot of squad depth - because they want to be playing. This is a problem clubs like manchester City are facing with a couple of players already backing away as they cannot see how they will fit in. Hence the players are asking for assurances. So again it is difficult to see what the outcome will be, but Brandt is very much first choice for Klipperty and Liverpool.}

29 May 2017 08:36:43
Ed taking on board what youve said about Kieta, are we chasing other options in CM? Ed001 mentioned Carvalho and Paredes as viable options last week so wondered if efforts are being made currently, or does it seem all out for Kieta at this stage.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - we are keeping our options open mate, Keita is unlikely, hence the other options. I think Carvalho has been decided against now and looks extremely unlikely.}

29 May 2017 09:31:08
He's off to city ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2017 08:59:41
Ok mate fair enough, any other names youve been told or is that about were we are at currently?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - sorry nothing new yet.}

29 May 2017 09:01:30
I always thought Carvalho would end up as a top player at a top club a few years back, did really well internationally both at u21 level and when he broke into the full team.
I watch little to no Portuguese football so don't know his week in week out form but is there a reason he hasn't made a move? he's starting to crack on, must be 25/ 26 now.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - a lot of people are unconvinced by him.}

29 May 2017 10:03:51
I'm guessing he just hasn't kicked on, I know people in the past have said he's a little lazy and slow, which is not good attributes for a holding midfielder! The fact Newcastle and West Brom seem to be heavily linked probably says it all.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2017 12:08:22
Ed01, why is keita unlikely mate? Is it the fee or his club not willing to sell, or the player doesn't fancy it, thanks?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - all three.}

29 May 2017 12:19:52
Thanks for the reply ed.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

29 May 2017 12:27:56
Player doesn't fancy the move either? The longer this go's on and the more you and ed002 explain the situation developing we might as well move onto other options imo. Everything that has been said so far makes it sound almost impossible, especially if the player is against the move.

Agree3 0Disagree

29 May 2017 09:49:13
Thank you for your developed response to my question Ed's 002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

29 May 2017 17:31:07
Probably Paredes then.
I like Paredes but I do wonder what will happen to Grujic and Ejaria.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2017 07:18:08
Apparently the demarai gray is looking to be completed in the next 48hrs. Tottenham came in late but his whole family are liverpool fans and his uncle is his agent. This is why we are sending ojo out to Newcastle! Gray is a very good signing raw talent.

Believable1 19Unbelievable

29 May 2017 07:25:19
Ojo barely played, what's the point of replacing him with a player who has done nothing really to even be called a raw talent.

Agree10 2Disagree

29 May 2017 10:38:49
I would just play Ojo instead personally.

Agree7 0Disagree

28 May 2017 23:26:49
Ojo to Newcastle on loan hope he does well.

Believable12 1Unbelievable

29 May 2017 00:07:38
Reports say it is a loan with an option to buy though.

Happy with the former, depending on game time, but less so with the latter. I still think Ojo has the ability to force himself into the first 11 in two, three years, if given the chance. The boy has blistering pace, quality crossing ability and has simply struggled the find form due to a concerning back injury. Hopefully we don't give up on him, ala Ibe, and sell him.

Agree9 2Disagree

29 May 2017 05:35:33
Mango - i think the decision to sell Ibe has proven to be a good one thus far. I don't think we gave up on him at all.

Agree7 0Disagree

29 May 2017 08:17:02
Ibe showed much more than Ojo has done as well.
Mango- I wouldn't say he has blistering pace, he's certainly not slow but for a winger his pace doesn't stand out.
I hope he can force his way into the team and become a star but I reallly don't see it happening.

Agree1 5Disagree

29 May 2017 08:54:43
Whether one's opinion is that Ojo has a long term future at the club or not, a loan to another prem side where he has a good chance of playing is a good move for him at this stage in his development. At least we're not stifling his development.

Agree4 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Newncastle are looking for a permanent move but a loan to buy may suit them and Liverpool.}

29 May 2017 13:42:26
With a loan to buy, can the club reject the bid at the end of the loan spell if he shows rapid progression?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It would not be a bid, it would be a fixed amount.}

28 May 2017 18:29:04
Word on the street from a usually reliable source - VVD is a done deal. £48m with add on's close to £55m. It's being suggested by the ed's that this is not possible for various reasons. However I do trust the information and will be shocked/ gutted if not correct. It's a lot of money for him but that's the market. If stones is worth £50m.

Believable16 20Unbelievable

28 May 2017 18:57:46
I'm sorry but I'll believe it when I see it. Though you could probably get 2 good CB for that price.

28 May 2017 19:34:29
Lol. So according to several people that's VVD and Kieta deals done and 100m spent. Lmao. If only it was true.

Agree3 9Disagree

{Ed002's Note - And many others are completed as well.}

28 May 2017 19:36:01
Taking that for what it is, and then looking at the fact it's going to be similar money involved for Keita, Liverpool really are prepared to spend big in this window. Sessegnon will probably be another realistic target. I agree it's stupid money but each transfer seems to drive the price up of the next.

Agree4 0Disagree

28 May 2017 19:45:00
May as well get Bertrand while we're at it.

28 May 2017 21:55:25
No chance.

Neither good enough. Ones a flash pony and the othet is an alrifht mid who isn't chelsea or arsebal firsr chouce as they don't think he's worth the asking price.

Whats he done to be worth 45 million. I mean that's top level mid. Kante was 30. Will keita transform us like that . Doubt it. Is he the passer we need. Nopes. He is a highly technical player no. We have more possession than we know what to do with. We need players who can us it.

Agree0 13Disagree

28 May 2017 22:54:37
Kante was a steal and due to a champions league club release clause.

Keita is a very good player. Not sure why you're hating on him just because he's not as good as Kante. Not many players are, Kante is one of the best. It's like bashing Coutinho because he's not as good as Neymar.

Agree9 1Disagree

28 May 2017 23:17:32
Its not though really.

Coutinhos level is at times probably higher than neymars

Your talking about two excellent players. wasnt neymar crying for Barcelona to sign cou.

Is keita any better than gueye of everton who went for 7.2 mil last year.

Is keita really worth 45 million. Not a chance.

Oh and this isn't a case of well a few years ago he would of been about 20 mil. he's a 20 million player now whose had a good season but still nothing outstanding. again not for 45 mil.

Arsenal signed holding who just won the fa cup with them for 4 mil. Vvd is nowhere near 50 mil.

Thats just spending for spending sake.

Auba on the other hand has scored 60 goals over 2 years. And would be worth every penny and 50/ 60 mil. that's what you should be getting for that price. Not two good players. It should be star men.

Mane was 36 mil and we were all baulking at that. Your just glad to be spending the big bucks to be like the others.

Agree4 10Disagree

28 May 2017 23:21:43
Well said Puzzles Red!

If we get both then they are good signings. Let's face it if we are realistic about challenging for trophies then we have to adapt to the market and what other teams are doing. And that is having to spend big. Last season we made money on transfer market I believe, and we more depth imagine what we could be like with the way that Klopp can get us playing. Both Manchester clubs are going to spend silly amounts and so will Chelsea. Money isn't a big issue for us as Klopp said so let's get behind who ever we sign, however much they cost :)

Agree2 0Disagree

29 May 2017 00:03:23
Yeah but there's spending

50 mil on stones
50 mil on sterling
100 mil on pogba


36 on mane
30 mil on kante
30 mil on luiz
5 mil ali. just to throw him in
Kane the academy
Rose 1 mil

50 mil isn't the going rate. Its the rip of rate because the prem in know to have money

What happens now is we have 2 20 mil players who are expected to deliever what true 50 million players do.

Klopp will have spent a 100 mil and if he doesn't deliever then he will have failed like rodgers and probably be gone.

To the owners that's the premier league but its not.

We can spend that money

On aubamayang 65 mil. 15 mil pereria. 10 mil ses. 25 mil nzonzi or 18 mil obiang.

Thats how to spend 100 mil. This is what city do and they finished 1 poin t above us throwing cash on crap.

They finished the season with bravo and sane in the starting line up and spent 150 mil.

Agree1 10Disagree

29 May 2017 00:03:27
I think for the big English clubs now 35-50 million is the norm now for clubs to pay for a player . The prem os where the money is. City have signed one player for 43 and are about to sign a keeper for 45.

29 May 2017 01:02:16
Super seriously what are you on about?

Agree6 0Disagree

29 May 2017 03:26:19
Ed01, Sorry if i missed your assessment already but wondered how you feel about these 2 players that according to some are on their way.
I haven't seen much of them to be honest but if really £50 approx for each, it seems like crazy money to me and would rather scout harder and further before spending that much on 2 players.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure what way you mean by assessment? I don't believe either player will be at our club next season if that is what you mean.

If you mean evaluation of the players, I have not seen enough of Keita and have said it many many times in the past about van Dijk, technically and physically just about perfect but mentally awful. He has no positional sense, ball watches, goes off wandering and makes no effort to get back. He was at fault on almost every goal Southampton conceded when he was on the pitch. If you watch back when he plays, nine times out of ten he is nowhere to be seen when it is in the area he is meant to be covering. There is a mental laziness that transmits to his play, he is stroller. The Kenwyne Jones of defending.}

29 May 2017 03:42:54
First of all, the price of players are really ridiculous no thanks to China and teams like City spending 50mil on Stones etc and MU spending 89mil on Pogba. However, having said that, although VVD or Keita are not worth 50mil, sometimes we need to pay over the odds if we want quality players. Yes, you can go for cheaper options. That's what we did when we sold Torres and Suarez. We brought in a few players but how many of them became stars? You can also argue that Barcelona spent >60mil to land Suarez but he's been phenomenal for them. We spent only 8.5mil for Coutinho but how many years did we need to develop him to make him who he is today? We live in a time where everyone is demanding success and quick success. Gone are the days where managers and teams are given 5-10 years to make a team successful. If you go to Chelsea and you don't win anything or achieve anything in the first year, you're going to be sacked. I don't think MU will give Mourinho time to develop youngsters and slowly take their time to improve. They will give him money to spend on finished products to produce almost instant results. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. but if MU didn't spend on Zlatan, they wouldn't have achieved what they did this year. Arsenal wouldn't be in the top 4 in the past few years if it wasn't for the signing of Ozil and Sanchez. Same thing for us, people were complaining that Mane is not worth 36mil but he ended up being a steal. Yes, 36mil is a lot. but if we don't spend, the gap between us and the other top teams will become wider. We can be stingy and stubborn and just spend 15-20+mil on a player. Will it work? Maybe. if you're lucky you'll find a gem but look at Markovic and Lovren. Are they really worth 20mil? Maybe that's the quality you get for spending 20mil these days.

Agree7 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - by this definition Suarez was a cheaper option when we bought him.}

29 May 2017 06:24:04

Where as I agree neither player is worth that sort of money you also have to take into account wages.

We would probably only pay either player £100,000 a week where as aubemayang would want double that if not more. So that's another 20-25mil extra in wages over Keira and van dijk.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 May 2017 10:27:56
I mean stones was worth about 18/ 22 mil not 50.

Van dijk is about a 25 mil player not a 50 mil player. So were over spending.

Wheras auba is a 50/ 60 million pound player and we will be getting quality.

Mane performed like a 50 mil play and we payed 36.

Vab dijk will play like a 25 mil player and we will have payed 50. So he will never be good enoughm bexause you qill expect him to turn us into title challengers.

United thought they where winning the league for pogba. He will mever be good enough because of what he costs. Even if he has good seasons. He plays like a 40 million pound player but cost 100.

Lastly so the agent of the player will go i have a 50 millio pound pkayer on my habds just give us 100k a week. Manes on 150. They will near that aswel. If not abit more. Or theh will say where off to city.

Hey eds about Origi do you see an offer coming in for him or does the club wants to move him on, as a belgian I want to see him succeed at LFC but towards the end of the season he was just a passenger, DS was way better tbf,

Believable6 5Unbelievable

29 May 2017 08:23:28
It depends on how you define better. Sturridge provided one or two bright, exciting moments and goals but gives the ball away cheaply a lot. Origi has improved his hold up play and helps us keep possession a lot better now. He now needs to work on his movement to get into goal scoring situations more often and then to finish them.

I'd rather keep Origi personally as he is improving where as sturridge's performances are on the downhill now that he's losing his pace.

Agree2 2Disagree

28 May 2017 13:34:56
Eds we are constantly linked to vvd although what i read on here, that seems very unlikley. Have we ever shown interest in Ake of chelsea? i've been very impressed with him when i've seen him and with gomez could make a good young partnership. just my thoughts. Thanks.
