Hi Eds, I know you mentioned a while back that Brandt might want assurances about a game time and recently it has been reported publicly too. I was wondering (and it might be a bit of stretch) if Klopp talking openly about Coutinho dropping deeper in future might have been a way of making space within the starting XI for Brandt?

{Ed002's Note - No, it would make no difference. If Klopp wants to persuade Brandt he needs to get permission to talk to the player from his club, or perhaps tell his agent, that he will be first choice at Liverpool. With Douglas Costa's situation unresolved Bayern Munich could again look to Brandt, and if Costa moves, then they will be able to assure him of plenty of game time as Ribery sees out his last season. Else he will likely bide his time unless Spurs come calling.}

With this in mind ed is Luan being looked at instead of Brandt or not really related?

{Ed002's Note - Unrelated - Luan is a striker and would be a replacement for someone like Sturridge.}

I read today in a German publication that Brandt has decided too leave Leverkusen because of them missing out on Champions League?

16 May 2017 16:13:46
Ok mate fair enough, I read that he could play LW thought he might have been an alternative. You think Studge might be making thr club think twice about selling him after his cameo at the weekend?

{Ed002's Note - It would be playing him out of position.

The club has been sustained in their quest for a centre forward and it is likely they will continue. If Sturridge stays it has to be considered a risk based upon his availability in recent years.}

Thanks for the reply Ed. Just found the timing of it a bit strange, I was probably just reading into it too much.

Personally I think another wide is vital for us next season, not to compete with Mane but to compliment him on the opposite side. It just gives Klopp more options and flexibility as we've looked blunt and one dimensional at times when Mane has been missing.

{Ed002's Note - That is why Klopp wants Brandt.}

16 May 2017 17:45:16
With Dembele and Azmoun not happening. Is there anyone else new that we are now lucking at mate, or have you mentioned them previously?

{Ed002's Note - None beyond those discussed as far as I am aware.}

16 May 2017 19:02:29
Ok mate cheers. I would be happy with Luan, I think he will link up well with Couts and Bobby. Will see.

Hi Edo2

Re. Brandt, despite the player's concerns, do you feel that a reasonable a chance of a deal being done still remains? In your view, should LFC persist?

Could you see Klopp soon drawing the line on this one and moving on?
If so, what viable alternatives are there/ been looked at?

Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - In order to happen the player needs to drop his demand or Liverpool need to offer a guarantee - which they have done in the past and Klopp has been happy to announce his number one pick in some cases. He is the player Liverpool want, Bayern's interest may also return. Alternatives have been looked at as was explained in the Sharkopod.}

It cracks me up Ed002.Players requesting guaranteed playing time.

Will these same players be seeking assurances if they get injured πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

{Ed002's Note - It has become a very common thing - most clubs don't entertain it.}

a previous user debated ....................

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what your problem is. I have explained all the way along about Liverpool wanting a left winger and I have explained over and over again the situation with Brandt - and I have said other who the club have been looking at. You would perhaps do better simply going elsewhere.}

It's not just football clubs Ed002.

When it comes to Liverpool away, I ask my missus for permission/ playing time. She doesn't entertain it lol . Apparently the 19 home games are enough for me these days, my three year old son probably makes it a plausible.

Mind you, I managed to wangle West Ham away at the weekend, the meeting in London Monday morning did trick
