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.


{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?


{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?


{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

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!



17 May 2017 15:24:12
Eds have we showed interest in Timo Werner?


{Ed002's Note - Try the Search function.}

1.) 05 May 2017 16:07:23
Please kill me now.

2.) 05 May 2017 16:18:59
Thats List really does scream quality.

3.) 05 May 2017 17:04:52
It screams more potential than quality. I'm not slaying the list but I think we need to pepper in some more title challenge ready players into the mix personally.

I like pereira (from what I've read/ heard) and I think Brandt would be great.

If Sturridge leaves (which he likely will), I'd prefer a more experienced striker than Dembele etc as I'm happy with origi as our striker with great potential, I'm pretty sure he'd tear it up in Scottish league too.

4.) 05 May 2017 17:21:01
Saw Brereton play at City Ground vs. Reading a couple of weeks back. The lad is strong, quick and has a lot of energy. For a 17 year old he's a bit of a unit too. He bullied the Reading left winger all game. He was pretty effective on right side of attack and got into the box well, had a couple of chances. Not sure he's LFC quality just yet but definitely one to look out for. Forest fans really rate him.

5.) 05 May 2017 17:45:12
Why would he bully their left winger, what did he ever do to him?

6.) 05 May 2017 17:53:21
Id rather this list say Mbappe, Asensio, giminez, cedric, gaya tbh

And that would still give us are annual saints player so the scouts are happy.

7.) 05 May 2017 19:14:30
CyKlopps! More of this please mate! for us who don't or can't listen to the pod! Thanks a million buddy! :D.

8.) 05 May 2017 20:10:06
70% of that list wouldn't get into the starting 11. Actually higher than 70%.

9.) 05 May 2017 20:04:59
Many thanks for that I've been unable to find the sharkpods I did get redirect to frankyscousers conspiracy pod which was a good listen.

{Ed033's Note - If you go to youtube a put sharkopod in the search bar, the sharkopods appear.

10.) 05 May 2017 22:55:16
Not exactly a stellar list but with the resources we have and the fact we aren't champions league regulars anymore that's where we are in the transfer market. But as tottenham have proven if the players suit the style of play we have anything is possible.

11.) 06 May 2017 02:00:09
Andre Silva would be quite the coup though. Can play both RW and ST. Good cover for Firmino and Mane until he is fully acclimatized to the BPL. Would be very expensive though. Hear he has a 60 million Euros buyout clause.

12.) 06 May 2017 08:43:40
Would rather see players like isco, van dyke, Bertrand, lanzini, cresswell, verratti and aubermyang on that list.

Left back, centre half, midfielder attacking midfielder and striker.

13.) 06 May 2017 09:27:49
HOW can you put Isco and Veratti in the same sentence as resell and Lanzin?! Hahaha I am dying, too much on this page sometimes.

14.) 06 May 2017 10:08:08
Did you not see lanzini last night toTrentham couldn't deal with him one of the best defendive units in the prem. More chance of getting him.

15.) 06 May 2017 10:34:58
Looks like we never learn from previous windows. Always looking for potential, with a sell-on value instead of established quality players, who can go straight into the first team.

16.) 08 May 2017 12:43:23
I have to agree with Payne10, but I don't think we'll ever be that club that goes for the superstars. I'd love VVD, Naingolan and Aubamayang/ Lacazette to be the list, but i have full faith in the manager for spotting talent so let's just get behind who ever we bring in.

Also i'd take Lanzini in a heart beat.

{Ed001's Note - why would you want Nainggolan? Yes he is a very good midfielder, but he is 29, a heavy smoker, parties like there is no tomorrow and is likely to only have a couple of years left in the tank with his lifestyle. Also he would not have any interest in leaving Rome, he loves it there, already turning down the chance to double his salary by moving to the Premier League at least once previously.}

17.) 08 May 2017 15:19:49
He's just always impressed me when I've seen him play, however I didn't realize he was that old so to be fair it would make little sense.

I also liked the look of Jetro Willems for LB but I've not seen much of him recently.

{Ed001's Note - I like Willems too, from what I have seen, but that isn't much.

Nainggolan is an excellent player but I would steer well clear.}

18.) 08 May 2017 21:41:44
Remember Jetro Willems used to be the 'next big thing' having been called up to the Dutch national squad for the Euros in 2012 and was linked with everyone. The Dutch being the Dutch though, crashed out with three losses in the group stages and Willems just kind of fell off the radar.

Eds01/ 02/ 25 Just wondering what's your opinion on safe standing coming back? Apparently the Premier league have asked clubs if they would be interested and I think West Brom will be one of the first clubs to trial it? Do you think it is a good idea?


{Ed001's Note - no, I do not think it should come back as it does not exist. There is no such thing as safe standing. People look back on it with misty eyes and forget how crap it actually was.}

1.) 23 Jun 2017 16:17:36
Standing shouldn't come back, it's gone and that's that.

2.) 23 Jun 2017 17:03:02
I'm all for safe standing, completely different to the standing terraces and completely safe too.
Better than standing in front of a seat at ankle height like what happens now.



22 Jun 2017 15:08:25
Ed01 you mentioned Ghoulam as a possible target a while back. I know its rare but with Napoli being interested in Moreno and after rejecting their bid do you think a swap deal could be an option?


{Ed001's Note - doubtful.}



19 Jun 2017 16:29:33
Ed01/ 25 do you think we will try and sign more than one winger? Yes if Salah signs he will fit straight in and we will see him and Mane on our wings as first choices. But knowing our injury problems do you think we will look to add depth in these positions? The only depth we have are kids and the only Kid I can see maybe make it is Ojo and that's a maybe. Do you think we could look at getting Martins from Sporting as well? I know you said we have shown interest. I know its is in 2019 but the AFCON will come around again and we will end up with no one to fit in when they go.


{Ed001's Note - why would we? If the AFCON is the issue, we can buy next season, if need be.}

1.) 19 Jun 2017 16:40:22
What about Injuries ed? Mane only played 27 Games last season? I really think we could do with one more winger and we could have Mane/ Salah/ New Signing/ Ojo as our wingers which would be ideal. Isn't Luan a winger? Have we shown any more interest in him?

{Ed001's Note - so you want to buy a whole team of back ups in case of injury?}

2.) 19 Jun 2017 17:06:54
Or give a youngster a go? It's only 3-4 weeks at most.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 17:39:48
Ojo and Woodburn can be our backups for Mane and Salah. We do not have the wealth of Real or City to afford luxurious backups. Or would u rather choose luxury wingers over a left back and CB?



08 Jun 2017 16:48:50
Any word from Joe Square Tomato? He must be pretty let down by Klopp after he said he would be given chances next season only to find out he could of been fifth choice if we signed VVD. Is he looking to leave? Any info would be much appreciated.




08 Jun 2017 15:21:06
I am sorry eds don't mean to keeping going on abut the situation but now that Southampton have accepted our apology do you think we will be able to resume negotiations over the price for VVD or do you think that's the end as we said we have ended our interest, will we move onto different targets.


{Ed001's Note - it really does depend on Saints now. There is every chance VVD asks to leave, in which case it would revive the deal.}

We won't Spend 35 Million on our first target who is by far a better player who has proven it in a better league (Serie A) with more goals and assists but we will try buy an alternative for 40 Million which Sporting Lisbon are looking for, who has scored just 6 Goals. Anyone else confused? If we can't get Salah just give Ojo or Wilson.

Who will cover for them if one gets injured ed? City Have Sane, Sterling and B. Silva, Chelsea have Hazard, Pedro, and Willian. United have Mkhitaryan, Martial, Lingard. You need Quality players to push each other for places look how it worked for Mignolet and we need depth and players who can give Mane and Salah a rest when needed especially now with us having to play more games next season with europe and I expect us to have a good cup run as Klopp will be desperate to win a trophy. I would like to see Ojo step up but I don't see that happening.


{Ed002's Note - Coutinho, Firmino, Milner, Ojo (if he stays). The club has quality young players but so many of you are so obsessed with replacing them.}
