Hi Eds, BBC Sport reporting, via Spanish site, that we are resigned to losing Couts. Is that really the feeling at the club, or is it just press speculation?


{Ed001's Note - the club are not resigned to it, no.}

Hi edd001,
If you had to say? Do you think Phil will leave in summer. Also what positions do you see us bringing in and players we will try to ship out, I understand if you'd prefer not to answer if your busy.
Thanks to you and all the edd's for your hard work anyhow.

{Ed001's Note - I can't say because it mainly depends on us qualifying for the Champions League.

Positions are the same ones I keep saying, fullbacks and left wing/forward.

Outs will be some of the kids that haven't got through. Stewart is likely to go and probably Lucas, Randall, Moreno. Also Ojo and Sturridge have uncertain futures, though Sturridge is only likely to go because of his big wages and injury history. The club are not looking to push Sturridge out, it is just they will listen to offers.}

Thanks edd.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

02 May 2017 10:18:02
Ed, is the situation with Sturridge purely to do with finances and injury? I realize it is only a short period now, but is there a window for Sturridge to sway the club to keep him?

{Ed001's Note - he can choose to stay if he wants to.}

02 May 2017 10:32:40
But if he chooses to stay ed won't that hamper us bringing in another forward?

{Ed001's Note - no, we are looking for a left winger really, who can also cover forward.}

02 May 2017 10:58:20
Brandt as an example. So Studge could have a futre with us after all.

02 May 2017 11:32:21
Hi Ed001, is Lucas a very strong possibility to leave, or is there a growing likelihood he will stay on a new contract.

I've liked him for a number of years and I still feel he has a lot to offer as a DM, especially with more games next year and the ongoing problems Hendo is having. I liked the balance to the Can/ Lucas/ Wiji midfield we've had in the last few games.

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say as it is his personal choice.}

02 May 2017 11:52:31
Do you know if Studg is keen too stay?

{Ed001's Note - I believe so. Though the right offer might tempt him to go.}

02 May 2017 12:09:52
Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome Zed.}

I think for Lucas that game time on the pitch would be a factor for him on whether he stays or not.

given his age and that he is coming towards the back end of his career.

Even If Sturridge was fully fit I don't think he would be Klopp's first choice striker.
Whether he would be content on the bench being used as an impact player?

It could benefit the club and player as hopefully we have champions league football to look forward to.
A couple of decent cameos from Sturridge and one of the big boys could come calling.

02 May 2017 13:32:55
All in all when studge is fit he is easily our best striker. A half fit studge yesterday nearly secured it.

02 May 2017 13:42:51
Thanks ed lad! Much appreciated!

{Ed001's Note - everything Sturridge has said and done has suggested he wants to stay. The problem is that he has yet to see any genuine offers down on the table to tempt him, so it could all change if the right one comes along.}

02 May 2017 14:28:07
That is of course true.

Would you want him too stay ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

02 May 2017 14:45:09
Lemar please. Quality 50 mil. That'll do for the summer.

02 May 2017 15:49:06
I would love studge to smash a couple of goals before end of season. Then have an awesome preseason and not get injured once next year and with out doubt if that were to happen then he would smash 20 goals easy is this possible I hope so cause a fit studge is unplayable.

02 May 2017 16:21:29
Thanks mate.

Me too, he genuinely seems too be a nice lad who just wants too play footy. I feel sorry for him as he's quality when he plays.

{Ed001's Note - on a good day he is completely unstoppable and he is not one of these knobheads who throw their money about and live it up when they should be professional. It is such a shame he has suffered the injury problems he has.}

02 May 2017 16:27:41
Purely due to his injury record he may not get an offer that suits I would have thought. Can't see him taking a step up from us, especially if we can the offer champs league. He's too good for some of the clubs you hear about, hope the lad gets some luck and opts to stay with us too.

02 May 2017 16:30:27

It doesn't look like he's living the high life with all the booze and stuff. Also looks like he values family highly.

Wouldn't mind if he stays, especially if he enjoys being at the club.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't drink as far as I know.}

02 May 2017 18:10:45
has he always had these injury problems, or did city and Chelsea have other reasons to let him go.

{Ed001's Note - he had niggles and time out, he chose to leave both clubs, rather than being let go.}

02 May 2017 21:10:57
Ed i've been thinking about this situation, Surely he will leave as its clear Klopp doesn't like playing him. Also he is quite fixed in his posistions and doesn't seem mobile enough to suit the system Klopp trys to set up with. Do you know Klopps thoughts on him? He must be on high wages so why would we keep a player with his injury record and wages who isn't first choice and will likely be behind Origi Ings and Firmino?

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry, why do you think Klopp doesn't like playing him? Fixed in his positions? Are we still talking about Sturridge here?}
