The first time I've heard of this linked player.

I've just read that we're interested in bringing in Norwich defender Ben Godfrey for £10m.

Anyone know anything about him or seen him play?

Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.

* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!


2.) 21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.


3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.

I've just read on BBC's deadline day updates that Ben Woodburn isn't going back out on loan.

I find that a bit strange, as surely his minutes will be limited in our first team squad.

EpicPotato

1.) 31 Jan 2019 19:50:45
He was doing well training and playing under the Liverpool system of play, at whichever level. Maybe that's what he needs more of, in order to develop and grow rather than go elsewhere, learn a new system and just sit on the bench? Guess it's a decision made by the coaching staff and they think something along these lines.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:17:10
He could have a macheda moment for us.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 20:52:58
Klopp said he wouldn't go anywhere unless there were game time guarantees. Rightly so. Woodburn might as well fight for a place in our team, rather than someone else's. Klopp said he got impatient before, so hopefully Ben realises now that loan moves are not beneficial 9 times out of 10. He should stay at Liverpool where he can learn from world class players and coaches.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 21:04:43
I would rather see Woodburn come on for the last 20 minutes of the game than Lallana.


5.) 01 Feb 2019 05:37:24
I think we are anyway short off alternatives to Mane on the left inside-forward role, which is where Woodburn plays from. I am hoping to see him get some minutes off the bench over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed for the lad - if even one of him and Brewster come good over the next 12 months or so, it will be a big win for us as a club.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 09:35:53
Dont see Woodburn or Brewster getting any game time this season. The club look to be taking it slow to get brewster ready for a good preseaon and it seems to be that klopp prefers to have the older players like Sturridge and Lallana in the matchday squads.

If it was up to me if they are training well I would give them a shot off the bench, up to them to take the the chance as at the moment Sturridge and Lallana are not taking there chance from the bench.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:32
I think Brewster will go on to be a good player for us but I can't see woodburn making it, not good enough IMO.

Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Liverpool have enquired about Brescia's 18 year old midfielder Sandro Tonali. Apparently Roma are interested too and he's supposed to be highly rated.

Anyone or any of the Eds heard anything or know anything about him?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - It was a while back and the interest has gone. There has been various levels of interest from several other sides as well.}


1.) 24 Jan 2019 20:24:50
As always, thank you very much Ed002.


2.) 26 Jan 2019 10:02:16
This guy is like Pirlo but better at dribbling.


3.) 26 Jan 2019 11:26:33
Best steer clear then. Pirlo was dreadfully over rated. When his team didn't have the ball they basically had 10 men.


4.) 26 Jan 2019 12:05:09
That’s like saying Henry was overrated because he couldn’t head the ball very well. Not all greats are great everything. Pirlo is the player Jorginho wishes he could be.

{Ed001's Note - depends on which point in Pirlo's career you are referring to. In his early days he was known for running with the ball. At the end of his career when playing deep, he was massively overrated because of what he did when his laziness was masked by having hardworking midfielders doing all the work for him.}


5.) 26 Jan 2019 17:05:30
In my defence Ed001, I don't remember the early part of Pirlo's career! I just saw the last 12 years from when he was in his late 20's, where he stood in the centre circle spraying passes, took set pieces, and then left his team mates to win it back and give it to him. At times it looked like he was deliberately positioning himself to not have to make a tackle! I certainly wouldn't want that player that I saw in this team.

Henry couldn't head the ball very well. But that is not a vital trait for a striker of his ilk. Putting in a bit of effort defensively is a pretty vital trait for a holding midfielder I think!


6.) 27 Jan 2019 20:31:38
Rumour on Twitter from a reliable guy I follow has said we have opened talks with Brescia for this guy.

{Ed002's Note - Certianly Liverpool enquired a while ago - game time will be a major issue.}


 

 

30 Dec 2018 20:27:06
I've just read that Liverpool are interested in Trabzonspor's 19 year old Turkish attacking midfielder Abdulkadir Omur. Does anyone on here or the Eds know anything about him? Apparently City want him too.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Trabzonspor's Abdulkadir Omur is subject of sustained interest from Bayern Munich and FC Nürnberg and both were looking to trying to strike some sort of deal for him once he turned 18 but he signed a professional contract with Trabzonspor. Bayern did however make what they considered to be a very significant offer for the player that proved to be unacceptable. Atletico Madrid also made an offer in the summer that would see him stay in Trabzonspor until the summer of 2019 if an agreement could be agreed between the parties - but this included only a small upfront payment and was deemed unacceptable. Benfica, Manchester City, Roma, Arsenal and Monaco are some of the clubs the Turkish club say have watched him but much interest has now drifted away as he would no longer be able to qualify as being home grown away from Turkey. I am not aware of Liverpool interest but suggest if it has come from the Turkish media they have included the club as interest as they always do.}


1.) 30 Dec 2018 20:47:59
Thank you for the detailed response Ed002. With the amount and pedigree of clubs interested suggests that he has talent, but yes, it's the Turkish Newspaper "Fotomac" that has reported it.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

I haven't seen this posted and only just realised by looking at the table.

Massive congratulations to the boys for being the first team to secure Champions League football for next season.

Even if we lose every game from now on, we still have Champions League next season.

Big congrats to the everyone in the squad and backroom.

I've just been reading about Fehnerbahce and their struggles. 19 league titles, and not finished outside the top 4 since 2002 and the lowest ever finish being 10th. They are now struggling in the relegation zone.

The article drifts from explaining that their foreign players are good enough, then how their Turkish players are too old, then how they've had to target younger lesser known players to comply with FFP.

It did not mention until later in the article that six months ago, they appointed a new sporting director. I thought I'd heard that name before. Damien Comolli. I remember when he was at Liverpool plenty of people here including some of the Eds knew he was a bad egg.

Thankfully, we got rid of him before it was too late. He did enough damage. And it appears he's still plying his trade.

EpicPotato

{Ed001's Note - it is unreal that he is still getting jobs! He is Inspector Clouseau made real.}


1.) 21 Jan 2019 14:17:14
At least he’s shown that his (lack of) skills are equally transferable across all different leagues 😂.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 14:51:54
Ed01, he prolly was the one who signed the likes of Andre Ayew and Matthieu Valbuena, both who are well over the hill. I guess he use "stats" from 5 years ago, to convince the club to sign them. How he gets jobs still? Well, you can always brandish working for LFC and Spurs (even tho you got disgracefully sacked) as a calling card and some sucker club will take you on. As they say, "A sucker is born everyday".

{Ed001's Note - he was certainly a big part of most of our poor signings like Downing.}


3.) 21 Jan 2019 15:41:19
What about Andy Carroll and Charlie Adam Ed001? What really confuses me with those two is that i wouldn’t have thought someone like Kenny would go for players with such a poor attitude and with so much baggage without some nudging from Comolli.

{Ed001's Note - their stats were excellent according to Comolli, though I am sure he will claim he had nothing to do with it, as he only ever takes the credit for successes!}


4.) 21 Jan 2019 16:27:54
Kinda surprised Comolli loved Adam's stats. I'm pretty sure the Scottish Alonso (lol) regularly finished matches with appallingly low pass completion in the second half of the season with Blackpool because he bought the media hype about himself and kept trying Hollywood balls all of the time, even when they weren't on.

Maybe Comolli saved his spreadsheets in January and stopped scouting him?

Downing might've been okay if we'd had a striker who was fully fit (unlike Carroll) and not suspended for a third of the season (unlike Suarez) for him to cross to.

{Ed001's Note - a lot of Adam's stats were based around set pieces, which had created lots of opportunities.}


5.) 21 Jan 2019 17:08:01
The reason I posted this is to really appreciate the contrast of Liverpool now Vs Liverpool in the dark times when Comolli was sporting director. Those times weren't all that long ago and shows that the club are really making rapid progress behind the scenes.

To completely ruin a club as historically successful as Fenerbahce, just shows how inept the man is at his role, and a complete fraud.

On the bright side, Manchester United are looking for a sporting director, aren't they? We can only dream :)


6.) 21 Jan 2019 17:35:59
Prolly used the same spreadsheets and stats. metrics to help put Fernebahce into the hole they are currently in.


 

 

20 Jan 2019 16:39:02
Not just Liverpool related, but related to the whole of league football in general. I just thought I'd ask here as Ed002 is the most knowledgeable person I know of who could answer it.

It was discussed on Soccer Saturday but no-one knew the answer. When someone gets fined by the FA (e. g. Troy Deeney getting fined £20,000 for criticising a referee - which seems a bit harsh), where does the money go? Does it go to charity? Grass roots football? Or does it just line the pockets of already wealthy people?

Surely the FA should be open about where this money goes.

Thanks in advance Ed002, or anyone else has any information about the subject.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - The FA are open about it, it simply goes in to the pot as income. I answered this a couple of weeks ago.}


1.) 20 Jan 2019 17:16:57
Thanks for taking the time Ed002. I didn't see the post a couple of weeks ago.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}


2.) 20 Jan 2019 21:57:22
It always makes me uncomfortable when organisations use fines to subsidise income. It’s so open to abuse when it’s in their interests financially to fine someone.

{Ed0333's Note - same principle with councils when they issue tickets for speeding and parking. Hate that.

Apparantly it's Juventus where he'll probably end up. Being a young Portuguese lad, it's also a dream for him to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

I can't see him ending up anywhere else.

He's 23 and on the verge of a 40m transfer to Athletico. It's not like we've ruined his career is it? Athletico wouldn't pay that for a backup player. I predict big things for him and well deserved for showing his worth while on loan.

@Longthing. Everyone is going to want him if he's still at Leicester. If he stagnates his career by moving to a big club now, it won't be the case. That guy needs to play every game to keep improving.

We pretty much already play 2-5-3, considering that our full backs spend more time in the opposition's half than our own.

@Ohyoubeauty We have done rather well recently selling young players that aren't going to make it with us for decent money.

Jerome Sinclair, Brad Smith, Jordan Ibe, Dominic Solanke.

If there's decent demand for Camacho, I've plenty of confidence that we'll get a decent fee for him.

Luckily, with Crystal Palace taking 3 points off Arsenal, Man United still have something to play for. They're only 2 points from 4th with 4 games to play.

I actually thought their defence did well, obviously not the clumsy foul for the penalty. Their full backs did a great job and were unlucky to be on the losing side.

I was hoping they'd win today, so that they'd have something to play for on Wednesday.

They'd have been level on points with Spurs if they'd won today with top 4 in their own hands - obviously only by beating City.

Do people really believe that Suarez is better than Firmino? He was an absolute genius when he was with us, but he's not the same player anymore.

Alisson, TAA, Gomez, VVD, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Rakitic, Mane, Salah, Messi. For me.

I know I've not included Firmino in my pick, but Messi gets that spot. Firmino on the bench.
