Awesome listen, thanks Ed002!

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - you are welcome.}

Cheers Ed002, it's refreshing to hear our targets are ones that would improve the first team rather then just the squad.

14 Mar 2017 19:02:32
Amazing as always! Gutted Sparky was visiting family though.

Sounds like we have serious interest particularly in Pickford, Sessengon, Pereira, Brandt and Brereton with potentially one of Dembele or Andre Silva to replace Sturridge.

Just looking at the above though makes me feel that Firmino and Coutinho could be off? Brandt and Dembele/ Silva would surely be signed to go straight into the front 3 with Mane. For the amount they would cost it would be almost ludicrous for them to sit in the reserves!

Sounds like we might be looking to get things right for once though. You are a legend for putting this together for us!

MK - isn't this the model?
Buy potential, develop and sell for profit and then re-invest?

14 Mar 2017 18:48:46
Excellent pod Ed002. Thanks for your time and effort on this.

14 Mar 2017 19:40:23
I be a happy boy if we can get dembele from Celtic. But thanks for the information ed.

Great work ed002 😘.

Question for Ed002:
You mentioned that Klopp wants to sign a striker plus a winger (most likely Brandt) . If Sturridge is the only forward on his way out, where does that leave the likes of Ojo and Woodburn who would likely be 7th and 8th choice of the forwards at the club? Or is this in preparation for Coutinho or Firmino's departure? And is Clyne also likely to move on?

{Ed002's Note - I don't think Klopp sees Ojo and Woodburn as more than squad players. There is nothing to say that they are looking to move Clyne on at this time.}

14 Mar 2017 23:24:10
If Brandt and another forward do arrive, I can see Origi and even Ings being pretty miffed. OR Coutinho may potentially be sacrificed to bulk up our forward line in preparation for additional European games next season.

15 Mar 2017 07:17:18
I dunno how you'd fit it but I loved seeing couts in the middle with sss in front of him running.

15 Mar 2017 07:18:20
I don't think we should start sacrificing players and we definitely shouldn't start with Coutinho.

We'll find a buyer before it comes to that 😉.

15 Mar 2017 08:17:16
Ron, I never said we should start sacrificing players for new ones. But Ed002 has just mentioned we are actively trying to sign Brandt and another versatile forward (Dembele or Inaki) and signing two of those players will go north of 50 million GBP just for bulking up an already strong forward line. Where are all those funds going to come from? I just have a feeling Couts will be off in the summer and maybe that is why two forward players are being targeted.

15 Mar 2017 14:52:00
I was only joking IndianB.

The idea of ritually sacrificing players 😉.

15 Mar 2017 13:06:50
Fantastic podcast, thanks Ed2. Hypothetical question: if all three of Lucas, Grujic (loan) and Can left this summer would Klopp look to replace them with players already in the squad or would he look to the transfer market?


{Ed002's Note - He would need one replacement certainly - then perhaps Kevin Stewart or Pedro Chirivella would get a chance.}

15 Mar 2017 21:24:05
To be fair though AggerDo, it is buy potential, maximise their value, buy bigger potential with the proceeds. FSG don't exactly shy away from reinvesting the cash!

I love Firmino and Coutinho. But they have 15 league goals combined. Not being funny but Andre Silva at 21 years old has 15 goals to himself, and Dembele at 20 years old (albeit In a weak league) has more like 30.

Stats can be misleading in most cases but when it comes to your forwards you solely judge them on the goals they score, because that is their primary job. Pressing, link up play etc? That is just an excuse for players not putting it in the net enough.

Mane has 12 goals alone despite going to the AFCON for a month. That is double what Coutinho has and 3 more than the so called main striker Firmino. Coutinho and Firmino as stunning to watch as they are ultimately flatter to deceive. So it would be sad to lose them, but I think we need to shed some of our fancy players for more effective players.

Coutinho on 6 goals is in amongst Lallana (7), Milner (6), Wijnaldum (5) and Can (4). Is that really good enough for your first choice left forward and supposed go-to-man? To be outscored by left backs and rotated midfielders?

15 Mar 2017 21:13:34
Dembele or any striker will replace Sturridge while Brandt is the only additions to the squad.

15 Mar 2017 21:42:47
Indian, if we have CL footie then Couts will stay another season at least. People are complaining that we don't have depth nor enough good players and when we are trying to get them, others say we should not cos Couts or whoever will be miffed or off. It' Professional Football, lads! Competition is premium and if you can't hack it under competitive conditions in training then by all means, be off.
