Heard that there could be interest in Radja Nainggolan as a fall back option to Keita, could the ed's care to shed some light on this? Thanks.

HX Red

{Ed002's Note - Roma have told the interested parties that he is not going to be sold but that doesn't include Liverpool as they have shown no interest in him.}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 21:27:24
He rejected Chelsea last season and now, Utd. Also, don't know how he will cope with the way we play as he is a smoker.

{Ed007's Note - Cue the Socrates posts..........

2.) 09 Jul 2017 21:36:20
I think it's just because of his daft haircut.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 11:47:06
Self confessed smokescreen.



05 Apr 2016 13:50:16
Hey ed, any truth that we make be looking at Lucas Vazquez for around £10m? Would be a great deal if we could pull it off imo.

HX Red

{Ed002's Note - A Rodgers target. Liverpool enquired about the availability of Real Madrid's Lucas Vazquez and were told Espanyol had an option as part of a buy-to-loan deal but that he would be allowed to leave last summer.}

1.) 05 Apr 2016 14:39:34
Cant see why we would go for him now, hasn't really kicked on at 24 and is similar to Alberto. Not a regular starter, so why would we spend £10m on a player no better (And in fact is significantly a worse player) than Markovic or Ibe?

2.) 05 Apr 2016 16:10:40
No better than Iago Aspas. And no he is nothing like Alberto.

3.) 07 Apr 2016 03:19:32
He will be to replace winger. likely milner.



05 Jul 2015 13:36:59
Sorry to mention a random name ed but i was just wondering what your opinions are on Charles Aranguiz?

Personally he's a player who every time i have watched he has been near enough the best player on the pitch and seems perfectly able to play in either a more attacking role or as a deep lying midfielder.

I'm also wondering if any bigger club has shown an interest in him? In my opinion he could be the perfect alternative to Kovacic.

HX Red

{Ed002's Note - Internacionale's Charles Aranguiz was getting good reviews last season and, although tailing off a little season has attracted the attention of scouts from Europe. Bielsa has admitted that he would like to take Aranguiz to Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen have also spoken with his club but are aware a move would be difficult. It is also known that Sporting, Arsenal, Chelsea and Valencia have had the player watched in recent months. Asked about the interest of Arsenal the player did say it would be "a dream" to play for them but neither his club nor his representatives have been approached by anyone other than Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen.}

1.) 05 Jul 2015 14:03:19
Cheers ed, appreciate the in-depth response.



17 May 2014 14:32:08
Hey Ed's
There has been a lot of recent talk of interest in dani parejo, a player who I do like, who has good technique and is tactically very sound. Despite this, I have to say talk of a bid of around £20m possibly even £25M I find to be expensive considering the alternative replacements we have available.

I was just wondering if you know of anything new in regards to interest in Ivan Rakitic? I truly believe he is the player we need, having watched him this season and being unbelievably impressed with his talent in his all around play on many occasions I think he is the perfect foil for Steven Gerrard in the dynamic central midfield role, similar to that of Henderson.

Thanks Ed's.

HX Red

{Ed002's Note - There is a chance that he will agree a new deal with Sevilla and it is likely that Real Madrid will step in with a good offer for him. Chelsea have rekindled interest with some recent discussions and the chance of a player moving exchange. Bayern Munich are keeping a watching brief.}

1.) So no chance of Rakitic now.



12 Jun 2013 11:19:22
Hey ed's

I was just wondering if there has been any recent change in regards of Douglas of FC Twente?
Not heard his name mentioned for a while and considering he is available on a free I believe could be a real bargain, despite potentially high wages/signing on fee. As I am pretty sure a few weeks ago you said that you wouldn't be surprised if Liverpool had an interest.

Thanks a lot guys. {Ed001's Note - not with regards to us, there has been talk of Newcastle showing interest, though not sure how much truth there is in that.}

Nice to see the boys back in action even if it was a fairly routine performance. I thought I'd give a mention to a few who stood out.

Ojo looked bright in the first half, I don't remember him being this quick, nice to see he played with the first teamers too. The same can be said for TAA and Grujic, all 3 were out best performers in the first half imo with Grujic's goal a really fine strike, TAA's delivery into the box was superb too.

Second half threw up a few surprises, none more so than Flanno, he wasn't under any real pressure but he linked up well down the left which was nice to see. Kent looked full of confidence and his direct play was a nightmare for their defence. Woodburn looked tidy as ever, linking up well and tucked away his penalty nicely. the most impressive for me though was Solanke, it seems crazy he's only 19! He looks strong, quick and his technique and dribbling were superb, very unlucky not to score on two occasions, looks like we have a real gem on our hands there.

HX Red

1.) 12 Jul 2017 23:05:16
Hopefully the ed's can add the second part, accidentally sent it before praising Solanke.

{Ed007's Note - Is that it mate?}

2.) 12 Jul 2017 23:51:00
Cheers ed 007!

{Ed007's Note - No probs.}

3.) 13 Jul 2017 03:49:41
In the second half, the player who stood out the most for me, was Marcovic. He was just awful.
Excuses can be made about it being first game/ no fitness or whatever, but he stood out to me as worse than all the rest and they can all use the the same excuse for mistakes and such. But hiss first touch was incredibly abysmal every time 😩.



29 Jun 2017 22:15:20
I have to say I have huge respect for Salif Diao's academy in Dakar. He seems like a very intelligent, caring professional and his passion to give back to a community which once had so little is truly admirable.

HX Red

1.) 30 Jun 2017 02:38:21
Salif actually drove a 2 seater original Smart car when he played for us.

{Ed001's Note - I always liked him as he would stop and chat if you met him. Not many players do that.}

2.) 30 Jun 2017 08:12:38
A lot of Senegalese players (current or retired) have academies in their home country or do a heck of a lot in their various communities. Players like Ferdinand Coly, Khalilou Fadiga, Salif Diao, and even Demba Ba and our own Sadio Mane are doing great work there. So do Patrick Vieira and Akon. As for El-hadj Diouf? No comment.



18 Jun 2017 16:19:52
For all this talk of not buying a forward and spending £60m+ on a LB and RB, for me the priority has to be a CB. I can't think of much worse than starting the season with Lovren in our first 11 and would much rather stick with Clyne or Milner at RB and spend that money on a suitable CB.

HX Red

1.) 18 Jun 2017 18:58:02
Sorry but no.

Fullback improvement (left back especially) has to be the priority. It is a huge part of our build up play, our fullbacks get time on the ball and need to be able to use right now we have no width from these two and as such the space in the middle closes up and it stifles our play.

This is the same reason Mane is so useful in it system in stretching the play wide and in behind and also why Salah is being targeted too.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 20:29:28
Agreed, Puzzled. The FB positions need to be addressed as it will help both Mane and hopefully Salah, be more effective going forward and the CB's defensively.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 20:46:45
If given the choice between Mendy and Aubamyang I'd pick Mendy for sure. A leftfooted LB would make a world of difference, with the added bonus of Milner being able to switch to RB for games v teams defending low.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 21:01:02
LB needs addressing but at RB I would be more than happy with a choice between Milner or Clyne if it meant we could buy a new CB. The fact that fans still rate Lovren enough to be a starter is genuinely worrying, other teams laugh at us for having him as a starter yet most of you see him as good enough, perhaps I'm watching a different team.



01 May 2017 23:41:25
Would just like to give a special mention to a certain Adam Lallana, I thought he was absolutely superb today (poor control for his chance aside) . I don't think we realised how much we've missed his linkup play and composure in tight situations since his injury and he will be a massive boost for us in the coming weeks.

HX Red

1.) 02 May 2017 00:26:19
I really enjoyed the 2nd half of the game. Agreed with you HX, Lallana played well today despite the miss. I thought Origi had quite a bad game. And I was so glad to see Sturridge back.

2.) 02 May 2017 00:31:42
Yeah I enjoyed it most of it too, the last 20 minutes were a little unnecessarily tense though! Origi has been out of sorts for a few weeks now and you'd have to hope Sturridge will start against Southampton.

3.) 02 May 2017 01:58:02
I am kinda understanding now why Klopp is looking at another striker. Sturridge will leave, Ings will not be back to his best at least until season after next, and Origi goes through long spells of poor form. Going into a UCL season with Firmino as your only quality option up front is a recipe for disaster.

4.) 02 May 2017 04:32:55
firmino has no understanding with any other player but countinho which would be a worry should little phil leave.

5.) 02 May 2017 08:10:32
Origi didn't have the best game BUT worked hard for the team, held the ball well and occupied their CB's very well as remember, he was going against three of them. Can always improve, tho.

6.) 02 May 2017 09:18:11
Kenny I disagree mate. I think Firmino has a great understanding with Lallana and even more so with Mane. That's one of the reasons we're so much better with Mane in the team, not just for his pace and directness but the speed with which the attacking trio of Couts, Firmino and Mane read and react to each others game. The big issue for me is atm he's stuck out right with nobody to play off because Clyne is a rabbit on a greyhound track, just racing round doing nothing, Origi just has no clue, his decision making is terrible so therefore he's stuck out there on his own.

7.) 02 May 2017 09:35:09
There lies the issue with Origi or our style of play. He need to make those runs behind the CB's something Firmino does when he plays up top.

8.) 02 May 2017 17:28:03
Harry, I thought Firmino was not good enough and would be on the bench had Studge not gotten injured and that he was an attacking midfielder playing the CF role? What changed suddenly for you?



01 May 2017 13:46:45
Afternoon Eds/ Reds

Just wondered what the general consensus on starting Sturridge over Origi tonight would be?

Personally I think Sturridge has looked decent in the brief cameos he's had recently and Origi has been notably quiet, offering next to nothing. He seems to always have a big impact off the bench though unlike others so feel this could be our best bet.

HX Red

1.) 01 May 2017 13:54:13
Sturridge can only play as one of a 2 and I'm pretty sure origi is much better with a partner. Not sure why Klopp hasn't worked this out yet to be honest.

2.) 01 May 2017 14:34:53
if he was fit enough I'd agree with you but right now he's not. Hopefully he gets some time this evening and a couple of starts before the end of the season.

3.) 01 May 2017 15:08:59
I would think Klopp would go with Firmino uptop Lallana on the wing .

4.) 01 May 2017 15:23:23
Firmino up top and Lallana to play RW. We all know Klopp.

5.) 01 May 2017 15:59:50
Studge is not fit enough to start neither is Lallana so the first 11 from last time will start today.

6.) 01 May 2017 17:11:33
so 12 12, with your thinking that klopp ain't worked it out and studge and origi should start upfront with full team which two of firminio, coutinho and mane do you drop to make way.

7.) 01 May 2017 18:06:49

Sturridge doesn't impress Klopp nor he works enough for the way he wants his players in his set up for games. He downs the press enough or run enough for all Firmino does week in week out. Klopp would excuse if his strikers doesn't score all deals. But no excuse if he doesn't run all game. There is absolutely no comparison over quality. Sturridge is a the purest form of what you will ever call a striker. He is no weakness absolutely no weaknes.

8.) 01 May 2017 20:11:13
Sturridges weakness is his fitness Harry, or ability to be able to stay so.

To be honest if we sold Coutinho he would at least add some creative spark, there's not many other options out there, it's just a matter of what position he would play as he doesn't really have the work rate for the CM role.

That he's not coming? If you seem to know something's coming surely you could say what it is?

We will seriously regret this if it's true, he's one of our only physical players we have left and like Decimus said, he has huge potential and I genuinely believe will go on to be a world class midfielder.

Classic silver Fifa beast, strange one but that's a pretty small fee these days so not much risk if it happens.

Assuming NK isn't considered the direct replacement then I feel we need some creative spark to link the midfield and attack as our main creative source will be gone. What worries me is how integral Coutinho is in linking the team together and without him we could be in serious trouble.

Looks like I'm the only one who doesn't particularly rate him that highly, he's fairly reliable and on his day has real quality but goes missing in so many games. Like Jezza said, if we sign Keita he's a sub.

HX Red

26 Jul 2017 11:49:16
Not sure Keita would fit in? Considering he's better than all of them I think we could maybe find a way. Agreed on the other points though.

Agreed, I'm going to get shot down here but in terms of moving forward I would rather he started than Hendo and I really rate Hendo but Can has an excellent balance of power, skill and technique rare for someone of his build.
