Eds Have we shown any more interest in Martins from Sporting since Salah has signed? Cheers.

CyKlopps

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool and, again, he is a right winger.}


1.) 07 Jul 2017 14:27:22
Cheers Ed, I know he is just wondering if Klopp was looking to add more depth and pace to the wings.

{Ed002's Note - I think there are other priorities first. And much will depend on who leaves.}


2.) 07 Jul 2017 15:37:31
Mane and Salah as first choice, Wilson and Ojo in reserve. That's plenty!


3.) 07 Jul 2017 17:28:10
I know we have a few but out and out wide players we have mane and Salah and then coutinho and lallana who can play there, though I think we lose some of lallana out wide. Say we start hendo couts and lallana in the middle, we don't really have a direct replacement out wide, or of one gets injured.
United have lingard, martial, mhk, mata, and rashford all capable there, Chelsea have hazard, pedro Willian and a few youngsters.
Wouldn't surprise me if we went for another that's all I'm saying.


4.) 07 Jul 2017 21:28:47
Fencey, Couts, Furmino, Lallana, Wiji, Origi, Solanke are all capable of playing out wide and add to that Wilson, Brannagan and Ojo who can also play out wide too.


5.) 07 Jul 2017 22:31:07
Brannagan has left the club I think.


6.) 08 Jul 2017 20:28:30
Did we sign a fencey? Can't work out who you mean? Ox would be decent for cover on wing, up front and midfield. Worth 25 mil for proven quality to cover three or four positions five if play with wing backs 352.


 

 

20 Jun 2017 13:46:02
Ed what's the story with Sessegnon? I thought we lost out to Spurs for his signature but he still hasn't signed for them yet. Are we still interested? Any update on our interest in Mendy at Monaco? Really think Left back should be a priority.

CyKlopps

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained, there are people at Fulham who do not want to do business with Liverpool. There is nothing to update regarding Mendy.}


1.) 20 Jun 2017 21:06:36
City are set to sign Mendy. Gutted, best LB around and that's probably sealed the title for them as they're sorting out proper quality early, done and dusted. We, on the other hand, have spent a month on Salah, who still hasn't signed and was our second choice.

City will sort two quality full backs cause they need them. We do, but won't. More attacking quality added, maybe Auba too. Don't need him, but top teams want competition for places. We don't like that.


2.) 20 Jun 2017 21:11:49
Bertrand won't want to join City to be a back up to Mendy. He's had that before. If city go for Mendy I'd be happy if we went in for Bertrand as he's a quality player.


3.) 20 Jun 2017 21:40:38
Ever the optimist hey Max ;) we've obviously taken a while to get our business done early due our handling of the Van Dijk transfer.

Salah is a quality signing and the transfer window hasn't even opened yet. There's still plenty of time to sign a left back (which we will) . Klopp's knowledge of the European market is second to none, he'll find a cheaper alternative to Mendy i presume.

I'll be amazed if the Van Dijk transfer goes through so after Salah we need to find a CB of genuine quality then i'll be happy with our business. A CF and a DCM (keita) would be a massive bonus.


4.) 20 Jun 2017 21:46:22
Bit short sighted to say that's probably sealed them the title when it's June!


5.) 20 Jun 2017 22:39:26
Mendy has by no means agreed to join city!


6.) 20 Jun 2017 22:46:44
Max Renn are you going for the most negative poster award?

We don't need Salah? Why don't we need another winger? We fell apart when Mane went and the team was fatigued.

I believe most games we will play a front 3 of Salah Firmino and Mane, with Phill just behind.

Everyone knows we need a LB and a CB to improve our starting 11. I'm not sure we need a CM imo as we have enough already Then we need to replace any out goings to add depth.

Chill out and see what's happened and the start of the season.


7.) 20 Jun 2017 22:47:41
Ed's can you explain fulham not wanting to do business with Liverpool. I. e. what we did to them.

{Ed007's Note - Pumped their mam!}


8.) 20 Jun 2017 21:38:52
Eds when is the players contract up and do any of you know which club he actualy prefers to go to. if any?

{Ed002's Note - Move on.}


9.) 21 Jun 2017 09:06:13
A largely untested keeper, no leadership in their defense and a completely unbalanced midfield. Mendy does not pretty much secure the title for City.


10.) 21 Jun 2017 09:30:39
Tizer I didn't say we didn't need Salah. We were linked with Auba and posters saying we don't need him as we have Sturridge, Origi and Solanke. City don't need him either but the difference is he can improve the competition for a place with Aguero and Jesus. We are short sighted to see players like Auba as an impressive signing to elevate us rather stick with what hasn't won us anything instead of pushing forward.

Mendy himself might not win the title but it is the areas they're improving- fullbacks, keeper and players like Bernardo Silva make sure they continue to improve competition. Posters here are right we need a LB. we needed one last summer, before that too. Keep hearing window not open yet I see our direct competition managing to buy and improve. The best LB in euro is available we should have sealed that problem area straight away.

We will see at the end of the window of course. But we have a packed cm area and want players like Ojo and Gomez given the chance, but we're hunting Keita, Salah and a CB. Still no lb still have a problem area, squad not improved and get those three Keita Salah and a CB that's going to be £120m spent. What we buying at lb? £10m Robertson? How much money do you think we have? Same old windows of money wasted and a squad hoping for top four not title challengers.


11.) 21 Jun 2017 11:34:18
yeah i think we should focus on a centre back and a left back and i would prefer koulibaly to van dyke due to the fact that it is about time we sought out a commanding defender for once and is areal value for money at 55-65 mil pounds we might purchase van dyke for.


 

 

09 Jun 2017 13:44:50
Ed01/ 02 I have been told we have been in talks with Shay Given have you heard anything your side?

CyKlopps

{Ed002's Note - No I haven't.}


1.) 09 Jun 2017 19:57:11
Makes sense - need 3rd keeper which he'd be more than happy with I'm sure.

Let Ward have a season in the PL with Huddersfield, giving him plenty of game time and relevant experience.

Migs hasn't been the greatest but recent form is good, likely as a result of Karius pushing him.

Given to be a player/ coach with any luck.!


2.) 10 Jun 2017 10:56:10
Given could still be playing regularly at lower levels so would be surprised if he wanted to be the break glass option and pretty much call an end to playing career.


3.) 11 Jun 2017 08:02:52
needs a strong decision on GK roll this season and not flip-flopping between migs and karius.

Done us no favours last season. If karius is going to be number 1 then we need to offload migs.


 

 

08 Jun 2017 15:22:45
Ed do you have any transfer update on our other targets? Luan? Mendy? Robertson? Kieta? Peirera?

CyKlopps

{Ed001's Note - Ghoulam?}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 15:36:05
Who are we targeting this summer, realistically?

Keep seeing James Rodriguez but surely that is just nonsense?


2.) 08 Jun 2017 15:46:11
smeagol?


3.) 08 Jun 2017 15:53:25
Thank you ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


4.) 08 Jun 2017 18:03:08
Oh dear god! But if we sign Ghoulam then surely we'll be relegated in January 2018! :o.


5.) 08 Jun 2017 18:03:34
wait, i meant 2019!

Eds do you see Danny Ward looking for a transfer away in January? he's getting to an age now where he needs to be starting games at a high level especially after doing so well at Huddersfield last season.

CyKlopps

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to go out on loan then to be honest.}


 

 

23 Oct 2017 13:29:39
Ed has Naby Keita actually signed a contract to join us or have we just agreed a deal with Leipzig? Just wondering if the deal may fall through if we miss out on the champions league will he still be willing to join us?

CyKlopps

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to fall through.}


 

 

28 Sep 2017 16:21:48
Sorry Ed but do you know if we are looking to set up a pre contract agreement with Goretzka in January to sign him in the summer on a free or is he nailed on to go to Bayern? I reckon him and Naby Keita would make a brilliant midfield partnership for us.

CyKlopps

{Ed002's Note - Nothing involves Liverpool in relation to Leon Goretzka - Liverpool has agreed to the signing of Keita.}


 

 

15 Sep 2017 15:07:44
Ed001, On the subject of how we are in bad need of new defenders is there any in the academy that are very highly thought of?

When I see a youngster get a chance it feels almost like a new signing for me and I am excited to see them do well and I like to support them even when they fail sometimes as they are only young at the end of the day and will make mistakes but it will improve them as players i. e Trents mistake vs Hoffenheim or Gomez's red card vs Sevilla. But to see senior players like Lovren and Matip make these same type of errors it really drives me mental they should be in their prime.

I have heard many good things about the young Irish lad Masterson? Do you know how highly rated he is and if he is close to getting a chance? What about Juanma, is he any close to breaking through? I heard on here he was very highly rated at one point.

CyKlopps

{Ed001's Note - I think this was discussed the other day, though I can't for the life of me remember who we discussed then. Masterson is highly rated, Juanma too, but really Gomez is the one the club has the highest hope for of defenders. With defenders developing slower, it is much tougher for them to break through, I mean Lloyd Jones is still there but I really do not hold out much hope of him breaking through sadly. At one time he looked almost certain.}


1.) 15 Sep 2017 15:36:55
Sorry Ed must have missed out on that post, cheers anyway. I agree I hope Gomez gets some games at centre back to show what he can do and doesn't end up like Wisdom who I thought had it all to go to play us. Also hope to see a fellow Irishman in Masterson come through.

{Ed001's Note - I would love to see a central defender come through the academy. It is a real good sign that the team is willing to place trust in youth products from it, as it is the hardest area of the field to develop. Experience is so important, very few centre backs establish themselves as first choice prior to the age of 25.}


2.) 15 Sep 2017 15:48:07
Exactly ed. I think joe gomez Is extremely promising. He is part of the reason klopp didn't feel the need to buy a cb for the sake of it but we have to be patient with him. I knew the moment gomes didn't have a great game fans would start looking at ghe academy.

I think the fact gomes is getting in a top pl team at his tender age tells us he is going to be huge.


3.) 15 Sep 2017 17:19:31
Who's that 16yr old who's about 6 foot 10?


4.) 15 Sep 2017 18:20:57
Ed, does Clyne's injury issues make it hard for Gomez to start at CB, knowing he's competing with Trent at RB, plus still young himself and getting over those serious injuries he's had?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, because the club want him at RB.}


5.) 15 Sep 2017 19:16:54
Is that not how Carragher first learnt his trade in the first team and he turned into a good solid centre half!


6.) 15 Sep 2017 20:11:13
Very good point jon.


7.) 15 Sep 2017 20:17:22
Jonpow, did you used to sing and write for a fantastic indie band called "Cast"? If so you're an absolute legend dude! Loved walkway, one of my favourite ever tunes! I saw you live at the Eastney cellars a couple of years back in portsmouth. My mate Ben opened for you (this is my pint, there are many like it but this one is mine) you signed my liverpool shirt after the gig. Still got it, it's one of my prized possessions! Don't know if this is the correct platform but do you reckon you'll get back with the band when the inevitable 90s revival happens? If it's not you I'm sorry, check out "Alright"


8.) 15 Sep 2017 22:17:20
Isn't Juanma a bit short to be a centre back? 1.77m?

Anyway that young giant I was on about - Emeka Obi 👍.


9.) 15 Sep 2017 22:59:14
Jonpow. got to be jon power! Jonny jonny give us a wave!


10.) 16 Sep 2017 01:24:20
Similar height to Puyol I believe Ron.


 

 

14 Sep 2017 10:33:22
We not only need new defenders we need an out and out defensive midfielder to protect this back four. All the top attacking teams in the world have what we are missing, Real Madrid - Casemiro, Barcelona - Busquets, Chelsea - Kante, Man United - Matic, Juventus - Khedira, Dortmond - Weigl, the list goes on even back when under Benitez we didn't ship goals under him we had Mascherano, Hamann, etc.

Henderson is not a defensive midfielder that doesn't mean I am saying he is a bad player but he definitely does not suit that role and either is Keita before anyone mentions him he is a box to box midfielder. We need someone who can sit back and make tackles and interceptions and pass it on to our attacking players to do the damage.

CyKlopps

1.) 14 Sep 2017 11:07:39
I expect " We don't play with DM " to respond 😄. Some teams plays 2 holding mid let alone 1 and they still score goals!


2.) 14 Sep 2017 11:36:29
Keita is coming next season, I know he's not an out and out DM that you all crave but he will protect the back 4 much better than Can.


3.) 14 Sep 2017 11:57:49
Hendo is the deepest of the midfield three which does not make him a DM as he is not and never has been in the true sense of the word. Klopp wants his midfield 3 to press and defend immediately the ball is lost. Disagree or not, that is the situation.


4.) 14 Sep 2017 13:04:07
I don't understand all the fuss about a DM to be honest - how is a DM going to stop lovren having a brain fart every game? How is a DM going to make Matip a competent defender? Sure a DM might make us ever so slightly better defensively but until the key issue, the quality of the centre backs, is addressed a DM will do little to help us.


5.) 14 Sep 2017 17:25:21
Seano - Mascherano used to protect the back 4 and very rarely did anyone get in behind him unless they launched a high ball into the box for Hyypia to mop up.

If it was upto you ed who would you like to see us bring in? My choice would have to be either Van Dijk or Eric Dier.

I wish Good luck to him, Klopp doesn't seem to know where to play him half the time. He will be a great signing for Juventus and add some youth to their ageing team. Great potential and Future Captain of his national team I bet.

Good Shout Buzzer can't think of any other option apart from him to be honest. Matter of time before he falls out with Ashley at Newcastle so I agree a reckon he would definitely be up for a return to us.

Before I say, I just want to clarify before anyone has a go at me I do not want Klopp to leave or am I trying to slate our Manager. Ed01 in the unlikely event Klopp goes to Bayern who realistically would you have to replace him at the club? Asking really to get your thoughts on Managers you think highly of after your recent article about overrated managers.

CyKlopps

{Ed001's Note - I honestly cannot think of a realistic choice.}

Thought Salah basically replaced Coutinho with Mane moving to the left wing and Salah to the right? What position do you think he would play ed if he signed? Cheers.

I wouldn't go for Oblak and Butland as their teams defence sit deep giving them more protection, while we play a high line so we need a sweeper keeper in my opinion. The likes of Keylor Navas, Hugo LLoris or Neuer would be great options but they would never be interested in coming to us. Only realistic option I see is Rui Patricio from Sporting who we have shown interest in before.

Ed01 is there any right back you rate highly that you would want us to realistically sign? Like Ricardo Pereira from Porto maybe? Cheers.

CyKlopps

{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head I don't see any out there worth buying when we have two young lads in need of experience who can play there. I would rather hold off another season and worry about fixing the problems in the centre.}

There plenty of great Managers out there HTBAR who could take us to the next level. Great ones such Ancelotti, Maurizio Sarri, Diego Simeone, Thomas Tuchel to name a few. I even think Benitez has unfinished business with us and I would welcome him back with open arms.

Johnny football has changed, its a results business now and nowadays Klopp is a lucky man to be given 3 seasons to win something at a club like us. He was linked with the biggest jobs in world football before he joined us and If he was at Chelsea, Real Madrid or Bayern he would not be given this amount of time to try and win something.

When Klopp first joined I was very excited that we had a Manager who had won a league elsewhere so I thought he should know what it takes to help us win the title. He will have had 3 seasons when this one ends and we are no closer to winning the league than we were when we had Rodgers. Now I don’t expect miracles but what I do expect is progress and I can’t see any. I think If we miss out on champions league this season it’s simple Klopp has to go.

Klopp has done well to change it around and players coming back from injury has helped this, but I am still unsure of his capability to bring us to the next level. We will do very well to get top four this year when we have to compete with Chelsea and Arsenal for 4th with the rest picking themselves so far and without the well needed defensive signings in the summer transfer window we are looking like the underdogs.

As for Salah I was very excited when we turned our attentions to him after missing out on Brandt in the summer. He has everything it takes to be a world class player for us. Again It is important we evolve as a team and begin to start challenging properly to make sure he does not want to leave for anywhere else.

Coutinho I disagree with you on. We need players that are 100 percent concentrated on playing for us. Yes he has moments of magic but sometimes I think he holds the rest of our talented players back by shooting whenever he gets within 35 yards of goal or looking for the ball all the time instead of letting the other players express themselves as well. Sooner he is gone the better, I think we will be much more better of with Keita instead of him when he arrives.
