Just wondering if the eds could shed some light on the Brandt situation as we are being linked with him but Bayern had apparently already agreed some sort of deal? Is our interest still there and do the eds think we could get him ahead of Bayern?

{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich has no agreement with him and Liverpool are keen. Nothing has changed. Try searching for more detail.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you know if we're in discussion with Leverkusen Ed?


{Ed002's Note - The problem as I understand it is persuading the player and there would not be an issue with the club.}

29 Apr 2017 12:17:27
Okey, thanks Ed.

Is he not interested in playing for us? What would his price be?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get into cost but his concern is that he would be sat on the bench unless someone left.}

29 Apr 2017 12:38:53
he obviously realises that coutinho plays on the left for us and is sensible enough to make sure he will be playing week in week out before making a move. I'm sure he would have the same concerns about a move to Bayern.

29 Apr 2017 12:34:52
Kinda sounds like in order for him to join, coutinho needs to be off. Don't like the sound of that.

29 Apr 2017 13:13:30
I'd play a 4-2-2-3 in that case, firmino and coutinho through the middle, play brandt left wing and mane right wing, striker up front, lallana and wijinaldum behind counts and firmino.

29 Apr 2017 13:48:45
4-2-2-3? So no keeper?

29 Apr 2017 13:50:11
Fly keeper next year then?

29 Apr 2017 15:01:54
Coutinho should play behind the striker where he is more effective.
Play Brandt on the left.

29 Apr 2017 16:16:32
Other option is moving to a 4-2-3-1 if he joins

Hendo and Gini behind Brandt, Coutinho and Mane with Firmino upfront would be a strong side. Can and Llalana to add competition and rotation.

29 Apr 2017 18:33:18
Trust me, COUTINHO the myth with be sold in the summer, not as good as he thinks he is, goes missing in far to many games.

29 Apr 2017 19:21:42
4-1-2-3 my bad.

29 Apr 2017 22:08:28
False Keeper.

29 Apr 2017 13:04:51
Oh okey mate.


29 Apr 2017 14:07:35
As things stand ed he is being looked at to play alonside Coutinho and not as a replacement right?

{Ed002's Note - I think Liverpool are looking at him very much as an additiona nd an option and are expecting PC to stay. The problems come when the kid looks at the starting side when everyone is fit and figures he would be on the bench. But to be fair to Klopp, a proper left wing - across from Mane is needed and would open up options for a dynamic and versatile attack. I think it would be a great addition if it could be done.}

30 Apr 2017 04:06:05
lets get it done.

30 Apr 2017 02:27:46
If a guy like Brandt is looking at our team and is thinking he'd be resigned to the bench, then what are they thinking when they look sat other clubs like Bayern? Or is it that those kinds of players expect to come to a club like ours and start?

{Ed002's Note - The interest of Bayern stems from another player screwing them about.}

30 Apr 2017 04:57:22
Tbh Ed002, Costa would be an even better addition. He has more pace and is more direct compared to Brandt, which is exactly what the team needs when Mane is not playing. But I guess wage demands and interest from elsewhere will scupper any chances of Costa.

30 Apr 2017 09:55:20
Thanks for the insight Ed002!

30 Apr 2017 10:02:14
Your seal of approval means a lot, ed! Here is to hoping that the promise of european football will be enough to convince Brandt to accept a rotational role. Besides potentially Bayern, are there any other clubs pushing for him, ed? I think you mentioned Arsenal interest, are they making any steps?

30 Apr 2017 20:38:44
If Sturridge does leave, with Origi up and diwn and Ings coming back from long lay off wouldn't that mean more chance of Firminho playing up front and Coutinho moving central, so Brandt would likely be furst choice on left?

{Ed002's Note - If Klopp will guarantee that and doesn't buy a striker even though the club has been looking then yes.}

01 May 2017 11:12:55
I have seen Brandt play many times and he is quality. I can understand why he wants first team football as he's young and still needs to improve and he won't get it here based on our current situation except if Couts drops into the Lallana position and Brandt plays wide left, which would be awesome. Hopefully, Klopp can convince him cos he is the real deal.
