Hi eds
Just wanted to ask with regards to Allan who's on loan at Hertha, under what circumstances would he get a work permit and be eligible to play for us. Bit of a confusing area so just wondering you could list the possible circumstances
Cheers and keep up the good work

{Ed002's Note - He does not meet the work permit requirements so Liverpool would need to request a hearing to make a case for him as a "special talent" and they know that after lying to the committee last year about another player their brownie points will be used up. Hertha Berlin would loike to have him continue on loan and I suspect that is what will happen. Right now Liverpool is not well structured for looking after such players - something I would hope that they can address – but the addition of Grujic makes Allan’s long-term future as a Liverpool player in doubt.}

Cheers ed2, does playing in European competitions help his case or just international appearances count?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Do you expect Grujic to kick on next season?

For me He needs to work on his core strength to build up the stamina for a premiership season.

Not just him though, all the other younger lads coming through will need the same as they appear very light

Bar Origi. he seems to be physically there but maybe his confidence needs a boost.

{Ed001's Note - stamina and strength is very rarely there at a young age, it is very easily developed, but it takes time. I don't see it as a problem.}

What does Allan's future have to do with Grujic Ed002? They are both midfielders but that's the only thing they have in common. Two completely different type of players, its not a case of one or the other. Allan's direct competition at LFC will be Henderson and Chirivella.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool cannot keep adding midfield players to the squad without removing some. Allan likely has no future at Liverpool in any case. Try not to be an idiot about this.}

IB, it is the work permit they have in common. Liverpool got a workpermit for Grujic due to promised playtime, a promise that wasnt kept.
Which obviously makes it hard to try and make the same promise again to get a work permit for Allan.

ED's please correct me if im wrong but this is how i understood things.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool know that a "special talent" nwork permit will be much harder to get after lying last time, yes. Add to that Allan will not be homegrown now and his chances diminesh.}

Is it ability the reason behind you seeing no future for Allan or more circumstances around the permit? Surely if its ability there's no rush to judge, a young lad who's had appearances in a top league and would have played a lot more but for the u20 championships with Brazil.

{Ed002's Note - He does not qualify for a work permit. He is not home grown. I am not sure why I need say the same things over and over.}

Hi Eds,

Knowing nothing about the subject myself, how should Liverpool be structured to handle these kinds of players. This is surely not a unique situation for Liverpool but for all clubs. A club as the size of Liverpool should have grasped this by now? Lack of future planning? and are they being addressed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but they are not.}

16 May 2017 17:46:21
With Stewart and Lucas due to leave this summer or next, and no one knowing how Henderson will be managed in the future would there not be space for him if he has a super season next year and gets his permit? think he looks a player.

{Ed002's Note - I can't see him getting in to the Brazil squad.}

16 May 2017 21:58:38
Would becoming a starter for Hertha and playing maybe 30-40 games for a team in a top league with European football at the age of 20 not be enough? Or does he HAVE to get into the Brazil squad?

{Ed002's Note - He does not meet the criteria for a work permit - you are clutching at straws.}
