Afternoon Eds

Do we still have real interest in Celtics Dembele, or is it doubtfull because of his demands? Not heard anything since the Sharkopod mate that's all.

Firminio2017

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


1.) 28 Apr 2017 19:16:58
I really don't think he would suit.


2.) 28 Apr 2017 20:00:48
He would suit imo. Absolute beast of a Striker.

Good morning all

Eds i've been reading through the posts regarding Sturridge possible suitors and is likely to push for him. My question is his replacement. you mentioned Berbeton, Azmoun and Dembele in the Sharkopod but recently said Azmoun is not keen on a move to Liverpool. Are there any others in the Striker mould we are looking at and has there been any advances on Dembele?

Firminio2017

{Ed002's Note - Moussa Marega was another Liverpool have watched regularly but he is another who won't be making the move as he has extended his loan period. Azmoun was concerned that he would not get game time. Iñaki Williams has also been of interest but it would be a significant risk to pay the very high asking price for such an inexperienced player. Andre Silva and Malcom have been looked at but are similar to Mane. Dembele is attracting a great deal of interest fromelsewhere and has already rejected one transfer as he wants guaranteed game time. Right now there is nothing more.


1.) 21 Apr 2017 09:21:30
Ok mate thank you for update I appreciate it.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 21 Apr 2017 09:47:29
Cheers ed02, you da best.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 22 Apr 2017 02:35:20
Who is the Berbeton you mention? Can find much on him.

{Ed002's Note - Ben Brereton is a youngster - try Google.}


 

 

18 Apr 2017 17:17:50
Hi ed002, hope your well?

How often do you do the Sharkopods please? Do you expect our targets to change much from the last pod?

Thanks in advance.

Firminio2017

{Ed002's Note - They will always change to some extent - I have others to do before returning to Liverpool so it will be a little while.}


1.) 18 Apr 2017 19:49:37
Where can I find the Sharkopods?

{Ed001's Note - here: podcasts


2.) 18 Apr 2017 20:12:14
Many thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome Goda.}


3.) 18 Apr 2017 21:19:38
The Sharkopods are great. Info aside, which is brilliant, love the little musical interludes. The Rolf Harris advert had me in hysterics.


4.) 18 Apr 2017 21:19:46
Ok mate that's fair enough. Look forward to it.


5.) 18 Apr 2017 22:56:53
Hey ed, is there a chance for one of your quick updates for the names in the Sharkopod with the likely/ unlikely scale? I recall that I have seen you using it on other pages and it is always an entertaining read.

{Ed002's Note - I provided an update on some yesterday.}

Hi Ed002

Can you say please if we have held any talks with Keita's representatives or his Club at this stage about a possible transfer?

Firminio2017

{Ed002's Note - RBL has said which sides they have spoken with but at this time it does not include Liverpool. Spurs have also been watching him in recent weeks.}


1.) 27 Apr 2017 16:15:23
This is one signing i really hope LFC can pull off. Keita will make a big difference to our midfield. Unlike Lallana, he shows up for all games and his overall qualities dwarf that of the likes of Can and Hendo.


2.) 27 Apr 2017 16:25:25
Ok ed cheers for reply mate. Sounds like were up against big clubs for his signature.

{Ed002's Note - I understand from an Arsenal scout that the club will look to make an offer to RBL for Naby Keita in the summer but they are concerned that he would not be interested if the did not have Champions League football and if they could not give him assurances about playing regularly. He has been looked at by Arsenal on several occasions these past two seasons with interest also being shown by PSG and Dortmund with the prior interest of Bayern Munich waning although not ruled out. There has been no interest shown by Liverpool at all according to RBL but I am aware that rumours persist and I am aware that last summer they spoke with his representatives but Liverpool would not match the wage demands, the asking price not guarantee playing time. Spurs have recently been watching him and have also yet to speak with RBL. If Liverpool were to double what RBL paid last summer, come up with a good financial package, could offer Champions League football and could give the guarantees of playing time - at someone's expense, I don't know who, then they need to talk to Leipzig.}


3.) 27 Apr 2017 16:25:57
Indian buzzer why did you feel the need to slag players off just say yes he's class I'd love him at liverpool.


4.) 27 Apr 2017 17:24:27
cheers again ed for the detailed reply mate. "There has been no interest shown at all by Liverpool" Is good enough for me mate. This is why I only trust this site and don't follow Twitter Instagram Bbc Sly sports as they all have zip idea and make crap up. The only other is the Echo and James Pearce reakons were after him along with others. Shows what he knows. Thanks again mate.

{Ed002's Note - As I said, they have not at this time spoken with RBL and they would need to.}


5.) 27 Apr 2017 18:39:21
Overall qualities dwarf Can and Hendo - are you having a laugh? Have you even watched him play? Or let me guess, you're an avid follower of the Austrian League and knew all about his quality since he signed for Salzburg?

{Ed001's Note - Salzburg? He plays for Leipzig in Germany, the Bundesliga....}


6.) 27 Apr 2017 18:42:30
Finally a goal scoring midfielder who could also win the ball back and start an attack itself.


7.) 27 Apr 2017 22:48:12
Ed001 I suspect hjikle is referring to fact that prior to RBL he was playing for their sister club Salzburg.


8.) 28 Apr 2017 13:14:45
I was phil yes, because otherwise people are being even more silly making massive statements about a player based on his one season in Germany.


 

 

24 Apr 2017 11:34:22
Bloody hell all doom and gloom today after yesterdays result. Anything to cheer us up ed001/ 002? 🤔.

1.) 24 Apr 2017 14:45:11
Cheers ed. I know I can always rely on you mate. ☺😅.


 

 

22 Apr 2017 11:34:40
Just reading Pearce in the Echo he is saying our targets are the likes of VVD, Brandt, Kieta etc. I don't understand Kieta links though as he seems to be another CM player of which we already have Hendo Can Wijnaldum Lallana Lucas and a few other fringe players. Ed can you explain to me were another CM would fit into the squad please and if we are genuinly looking at Kieta as an option?

Firminio2017

{Ed001's Note - Lucas may well leave, Lallana is fine against the big boys but goes missing against the rest (usually after mouthing off to the press about how he won't), and we have a lot more games next season, hopefully.}


1.) 22 Apr 2017 12:22:32
From what I have seen of Keita, he is an absolute beast of a midfielder, a class above anyone we have. If there is an opportunity to upgrade a position in the squad regardless of the numbers already in the squad, then why not? Like Ed001 said, Lucas and Stewart are probably gone and Hendo's injury problems unlikely to go away plus additional European games coming up, Keita would not only shore up the numbers in midfield but also represent an upgrade in quality on both Gini and Lallana.


2.) 22 Apr 2017 12:17:13
I'd rather we bought Keita for centre midfield than Oxlade as Keita is a proper centre midfielder not a square peg in a round hole.


3.) 22 Apr 2017 12:16:05
Not just Lallana ed, you always use him as an example. Never once seen you use Hendo as an example and for a captain sometimes he's abysmal.

You have your favs.

{Ed001's Note - or perhaps its because he never goes missing. Never once has he been abysmal. Anyway there are enough moronic boo boys like you having a go at Hendo, why should I join in with the stupidity? I use Lallana as an example because he is the main culprit. Always shouting his mouth off and then failing to live up to it. He should learn to shut his mouth and do his talking on the pitch.}


4.) 22 Apr 2017 12:41:09
Ox is of no interest to us Mr Dennis and not sure we would be first choice for Keita either.


5.) 22 Apr 2017 12:48:56
It seems that some posters dismiss players abilities just because they don't like them. Henderson abysmal? He may not be as effective as he should be in some games (all players get that), but abysmal?
When did slagging your own players off become "the Liverpool way"?


6.) 22 Apr 2017 12:50:05
Henderson is not the type which needs his ego to be massaged. He gets onto the pitch and does his talking there, not off of it. That is the resemblance of a true captain.

Milner and Lucas two other players who have enough professionalism about them to wear the armband.


7.) 22 Apr 2017 12:53:37
Cheers for reply ed I do appreciate all of your replys. Am I right in thinking Kieta would want CL and assured game time?

{Ed001's Note - it would be more a case of wanting to know what role the manager has in mind for him and CL.}


8.) 22 Apr 2017 13:24:50
Henderson has limitations and anyone disagrees are big time fan of the player. You are not going win a tea cup with professionals like Milner and Lucas. The club has been under mediocrity from ages and the fans are used to utter failures. Except the odd Couts and Mane we have nothing to show.

A deep lying playmaker who can't turn the ball from his feet towards the opposition in his own half is called Average. A CM is generally supposed to do a lot more than what he does. Doesn't score enough goals for all the running hence he was shipped to DLP role by Klopp and brought a CM in Wijnaldum ( eveb he doesn't score ) .

His passing is so conservative that we relies heavily up on Matip to bring the ball forward or Coutinho dropping into the middle. Now you know why we are linked with Kiera ( CM ) who scores and assists regularly unlike our midfielders!

Hypothetically would you buy Henderson again for £30 mill from Sunderland if you are in CL and need a CM?

Absolutely Not!

Cheers.


9.) 22 Apr 2017 14:55:03
Cool down Harry. No one said we are going to win everything with Hendo in the side. But at the moment he is one of the few players in the squad that will bust his gut in every game he plays and his leadership and consistency levels are to be admired. Keita would be a fantastic signing but he will need a partner in midfield and the likes of Gini, Can and Hendo provide solid options.


10.) 22 Apr 2017 17:41:01
The Baby face Mr Klopp will soon turn into Mr Ruthless Klopp once the pressure starts to mount on his head. I am looking for a record number of players to be shipped this summer. Keita is just one of the names. The entire midfield will be Re-shaped in an year or two. Wijnaldum would be the only survivor according to me!

{Ed033's Note - What! you mean Dr Jurgen will turn into Mr Klopp after drinking the Kool-Aid?


11.) 22 Apr 2017 17:43:23
Harry you really need to brush up on the facts.

Keita has 8 goals and 8 assists this season. Lallana has 7 and 7. Wijnaldum has 5 and 8.

Keita plays as far more advanced role than Henderson normally. Henderson the last season he played higher up got 7 goals and 15 assists.

So in terms of goals and assists, Keita is not streets ahead of our current players. But more importantly Henderson was not dropped deep because he lacked ability in the finally third! He was moved back because he is our best player for the position. 15 assists puts him in the same sort of bracket as players like Ozil, Fabregas, De Bruyne etc in terms of creating goals!

Keita would be a great player, and would play in our team easily. Not because our current midfielders lack an attacking threat though. That is a myth you have fabricated in your head.


12.) 22 Apr 2017 19:52:04
Great post, MK. The myth that Hendo is a poor player only exists in people's heads, not in reality especially to those who use their eyes to watch the games closely instead of just spouting alternative and made up facts like Donald Trump.

As for Keita, I'll be surprised if he signed here if we don't stump up the cash. Why? He just moved to RBL this season and RBL have SEVERELY deep pockets and can match any wages being offered for their players (their words exactly) hence, don't need to sell. If he comes, great. If he doesn't, don't be surprised BUT I'm sure many fans will come on here spouting nonsense about how FSG are stingy with money.


13.) 22 Apr 2017 19:25:40
He would become the dark knight Ed033 😎.


14.) 22 Apr 2017 21:38:44
This midfield has won nothing for ages and if you persists with the same people you will nothing ever going forward and thank heavens Klopp knows it. He's ill wipe out the average bunches with proper quality footballers. Henderson will be phased out in an year or two. Mark my words. The team has fallen short by a good 12 points of the top.

He is not a CM, not a DM or not even a DLP. We don't eve knows what he is after 5 good years. He has 20 goals in over 180 appearances with Liverpool.


15.) 23 Apr 2017 00:46:52
Keita, or his type, is another technical and infatiguable player that we can slot in to the rotation. We don't lack depth of quantity, but definitely a lack of depth in quality. I'd love this signing!

{Ed007's Note - That infatiguable better not be a sweary word and I get up to a row from Ed001.}


16.) 23 Apr 2017 07:58:07
Geez Harry you need a reality check. Hendo was one of the reasons why we almost won the league in 13-14, as was immediately demonstrated when he was suspended late in the season - all our energy and our creativity went missing. His move deeper has been a major factor in our improved performances in the last 12 months, it's just very unfortunate he's got an ongoing injury issue.

I do think Keita would be a great signing because we do need improved depth if he's going to continue to struggle with his heel, but there's no reason to slam our midfield, which in my opinion is right up there with the best. We've rarely been bettered in a midfield battle against the top 6, but as Ed says we need to improve against bottom sides and that isn't down to Hendo IMO.


17.) 23 Apr 2017 08:02:12
Slanging off Lallana is okay, especially when done by Ed11. But when we do for Hendo we are boo boiz got and okay to be called moronic.

{Ed001's Note - not what I said at all and I was not just mindlessly slagging off Lallana, I was complaining about his weaknesses which are there for all to see. The complaints about Henderson are always moronic lies with no basis in reality, like your post.}


18.) 23 Apr 2017 13:21:35
Omg harry, you will persist with this hendo slagging. To say he cannot pass from midfield is so disingenuous and thank you MK for bringing some facts to the discussion. However this site is about opinions and i respect that you have your own and don't follow the crowd.

I agree with the sentiment of bringing in quality now but only demonstrably better players that will come into the first team. I don't see kieta as that but with hopefully extra games next season he would be a welcome addition especially if lucas leaves.

Personally i feel we need to bring in two to three max top quality winners who have strong temperaments. Players that will not go missing and be leaders on the pitch. Who those players are i don't know, that's klopps job to identify. I know i know nothing, i was against the mane signing and look how that turned out.


 

 

20 Apr 2017 08:00:20
Morning all. Ed001, we've seen Klopp tinker with 3 at the back last 2 games, or at least ot seemed that way to me, so you think this could be his prefered option from now on or was it just to get the extra CB in there to cope with Stokes and WBA direct play? I quite like that set up but feels like we have not got the right personel to play it and we are better suited to 433.

Firminio2017

{Ed001's Note - horses for courses mate, against the bigger, more direct teams who lack pace, I expect to see the back three. I would prefer we didn't use it though, it just does not suit our players.}


1.) 20 Apr 2017 09:17:22
So for Palace as an example, would we assume back to 433. They will look to use Townsend and Zaha on the counter no doubt.

{Ed001's Note - that is what I believe to be the case.}


2.) 20 Apr 2017 10:29:49
Honestly I said it earlier in the week but palace leave their front three forward and I don't expect that to change and they will look to play down the channels and win it off us high if we play out from the back. That being said bar their front three after that initial press they are the not the most mobile in the middle and around the back.
So if our passing out from the back is precise given any sort of movement from our front 3 they should get space to do damage.
The main interest will be how much clyne and milner still push forward and whether Lucas will have the legs to cover the channels if they do.


3.) 20 Apr 2017 11:56:31
Just read that Lucas, Matip and Klavan all doubtful for the weekend. Time for Gomez?


4.) 20 Apr 2017 12:08:28
Matip again?


5.) 20 Apr 2017 13:51:52
That would be bad news I don't mind the idea of throwing Gomez in at the deep end first time around he looked assured and calm in everything he did but who would back up be god forbid one of lovren or himself took a knock early on, with Lucas out as well will leave us quite short in midfield. Assuming can drop to deeper and grujic perhaps in then? Or coutinho back and Trent even out wide.
Could be a very interesting lineup at least it will be difficult for palace to prepare for anything specific.


6.) 20 Apr 2017 15:04:38
Fankly, I'm starting to get worried about the fitness of our players. Either they are fragile or the training regime needs to be recalibrated or something cos it seems Matip for example, can't complete a full game w/ o some sort of injury. Hopefully, they can be passed fit for Sun cos I have little to no confidence in a Gomez-Lovren partnership cos one is a bit rash and the other is untested.


7.) 20 Apr 2017 20:21:24
Matip has suffered a lot with injuries this season. Can anyone shed any light as to whether this was the case while he was in Germany aswell or is it just since he joined us?


 

 

19 Apr 2017 17:09:40
Ed001. With your vast knowledge and zest. If you were a betting man were would you put money on VVD playing his football next season? Just for fun mate.

Firminio2017

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't. I don't really gamble anyway, but there is no way of knowing as no deal has been agreed or close to being agreed. A guess would be Man Utd, they are intending to sign at least one centre back, but it could easily be one of many as there are so few quality centre backs around that even he will be in demand.}


1.) 19 Apr 2017 19:14:19
Ok mate cheers for your input. Bit surprised at that as I can count at least 5 that they already have. I guess will see what develops then. Im thinking he will go for stupid money perhaps 45M+ which will be beyond us.

Thanks again mate for the reply.

As things stand ed he is being looked at to play alonside Coutinho and not as a replacement right?

Firminio2017

{Ed002's Note - I think Liverpool are looking at him very much as an additiona nd an option and are expecting PC to stay. The problems come when the kid looks at the starting side when everyone is fit and figures he would be on the bench. But to be fair to Klopp, a proper left wing - across from Mane is needed and would open up options for a dynamic and versatile attack. I think it would be a great addition if it could be done.}

All I know is we ship goals from crosses into the box at will and we need to improve on that area of the field. If Klopp can't coach what we have then we need to strengthen. Ed Im not saying VVD is the answer but he is an improvement on what we have. If he is the figure you quoted then that is crazy and we should look elsewere but all the noises seem to be on VVD. Would you say Klopp has now realised that with the constant injurys to Lovren and Matip he thinks he needs to strengthen in thst area?

{Ed002's Note - If Klopp wants a new CB then one of the others will need to move on.}

He is decent Harry. Certainly needed allthough eds has said Klopp wanted 4 CB's and we have 4 and with know talk of any leaving I can't see us bringing another in. Certainly a kick in the groin for Gomez if we bring one in.

Firminio2017

{Ed001's Note - decent is not what we should be buying. VVD is simply not good enough to make any significant difference, so spunking 50m on him is a waste.}
