Is it true we have signed Robertson? Bit of a bummer imo. Never really stood out for me in the Hull side but hope Klopp knows what he is doing.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 14 May 2017 08:36:36
Whether it is true or not, Robertson is one of Hull's best players. Surely will be an upgrade on Moreno? Might not be the player everyone wants but he will have the opportunity to prove that he is capable of wearing the shirt. At the end of the day, we need a LB. Whether Roberston is the answer is yet to be seen but no point in shooting him down if he has not even kicked a ball for LFC.

Our signings should be based on bringing in players who are better than what we currently have and not singing the next player to make him our next highest earner.

If Robertson does join then good for the lad. As long as he wears the shirt with pride and gives it his all for the club on and off the pitch. That is what we require from our players. Nothing more, nothing less.

{Ed025's Note - some really good positive stuff from you today max...you must have got your conkers last night mate.. :)


2.) 14 May 2017 08:52:56
Ed025, there is nothing wrong with being negative, as long as there is substance to it.

This is our biggest match of the season. 3 points dropped today and whatever we do vs Boro will unlikely have any relevance.

Now we have people moaning about a 23 year old Scot we might have signed. What is wrong with our fans?

In Liverpool’s eighteen title winning seasons, there has always been a Scot in the team :-)

{Ed025's Note - some will always look on the bleak side max and maybe thats how they vent their personal frustrations, for me liverpool have had a good season and are on the verge of completing what im sure was the original goal of getting in the top 4 mate..


3.) 14 May 2017 09:14:44
Where is the robertson news coming from? Any truth? If he is coming let's get behind him!


4.) 14 May 2017 09:19:02
He's a descent young player with room for improvement, if he had an exotic name or came from another league abroad people would get excited about the possibility. Give the guy a chance and get behind him if he signs!


5.) 14 May 2017 09:09:16

I have to admit that I have seen Robertson play, but in my eyes its not just about bringing in players who are better than what we have, as getting someone better than Moreno is hardly a hard thing to do.

Bringing in players just because they are better than what we have has been our problem for years.

What we should be aiming for is bringing in players who are gong to take us to the next level and challenge for the league title and also players that will cope with the champions league (all being well) .

Is Robertson that sort of player?

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are not in the financial position to buy all "worldies" lavers, sometimes you have to take a punt on a few so called lesser lights who you hope fit into the system, the likes of dele alli and VVD have stepped up to the mark and there are plenty more out there who can do the same, add to that the odd youth player who can come through and for me thats the way forward, its also the liverpool way which has brought them great success in the past mate..


6.) 14 May 2017 09:52:01
Ed

I'm not stupid enough to think that we can go out and spend 80-90 mil on every single player we buy, but to me our defence is our main problem area and i think that is where most of money this summer should be spent.

I'd rather sort the defence out first before looking for more attacking players.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with that lavers but i also see a goalscorer as a priority mate, liverpool create a lot of chances and they are not being put away..


7.) 14 May 2017 10:14:32
Am I missing something here? We're already signing players although the transfer window isn't open yet?
Is this some sort of pre-signing agreement or has silly season already kicked off?

{Ed025's Note - there are such things as pre-contract agreements flash but i dont believe this is the case here, but inquiries can be made outside the windows mate..


8.) 14 May 2017 10:03:25
Who is VVD? I'm having a mind blank.

{Ed001's Note - Virgil van Dijk.}


9.) 14 May 2017 10:56:53
Lavers, when have we brought in players better than what we had in transfer windows going back?

I do not believe there are even a handful that can be mentioned. Our problem has been signing players at ridiculous fees and wages and replacing what we have with either overpriced or high wage players.

Like I said, Robertson will not be the fan favourite when it comes to signings if it had to be true but surely cannot be worse than Moreno who is struggling to make the bench.

Klopp has done one thing right, each player he has signed permanently so far bar Grujic due to injuries have had a more than decent amount of playing time in the first team this season whereas previously we would sign a players paying way over the odds for them and other instances send them on loan or see them leaving without hardly kicking a ball for us.

If Robertson does join then so be it. In my humble opinion he will be an upgrade on what we currently have available and will not be taking a massive chunk out of the club finances. Having Milner at LB who now clearly has been a stopgap as one of your highest earners is the reason why Liverpool have continuously failed in the transfer market. That is why signing someone like Van Dijk will be yet another unforgettable act of gross negligence.

No more expensive and mind boggling mistakes, we cannot afford to be gung ho in the market anymore and if we want to start building a squad capable of achieving success then their needs to be sustainability.


10.) 14 May 2017 11:48:58
Max

Like you said Robertson can't be worse than Moreno who can't make the bench.

Just IMO for a problem area of the team where we have had a midfielder play all season we need to aim a little higher than that.

Your right we do pay stupid amounts on players but the selling team know we are desperate so they up there price.

We need to aim for players with winning mentalities that can push us up a level.


 

 

11 Mar 2017 06:51:01
Hey Eds, is LFC continuing to watch Leandro Paredes? I believe he would be a useful signing with his passing range and help break down stubborn defences which our hard running mids like Lallana and Gini have failed to do.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts at this time.}


1.) 11 Mar 2017 13:12:29
He must have been well scouted as we were trying to sign him in Jan. Just depends if he's up for a move.
Would he get a work permit ed, in your opinion?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool made no offer in January. He would however likely be expensive enough and have wage demands that would ease the passage for a work permit. I don't see any issues if Liverpool were to make a move for him.}


2.) 11 Mar 2017 18:37:23
Thanks ed002 😘.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Ron. He is available and was offered to another club as part of an exchange deal on two separate occasions.}


3.) 11 Mar 2017 19:32:58
I ve watched Paredes in 4 games now due to liverpool link and I just don't see it. He looks a fancy playmaker but in the games I watched he looked pretty useless defensively. both positionally and tackling ability. He goes to ground every single tackle even when it is not needed. pretty cowardly if you ask me. If he plays our defensive midfielder god help us.

Likelwise while I agree he looks good on the ball did very little really in the games I watched.

Honestly I think he's all wrong for the premier league especially but I'll take it from those who have seen more of him if I have misjudged him. I really hope so if we are after him.


4.) 11 Mar 2017 21:42:49
Davey he is more of a midfield playmaker than a destroyer. Your assessment is one of the more accurate I have seen. He certainly won't sit back and protect the defence. Maybe he could be coached to do that, but what a waste of his skills on the ball that would be.

He is very good on the ball, and likes to make little driving runs to get his side forward quickly and open up space in front of him, which he then has the vision to exploit.

As you quite rightly say though he is not that great defensively. He is a bit rash in the tackle and due to his forays forward he gets caught out of position at times.

He is definitely a good player though. He has a pretty wicked shot on him as well; even from dead balls. I think he could do well in the Premier League but I don't see how he fits into our midfield 3. He would give Klopp options though as he could play alongside Henderson in a midfield 2. I think he only becomes an option if we sell Emre Can though.


5.) 12 Mar 2017 02:05:09
I think it's fairly well accepted that Klopp needs to work on his "midfield 3".
Whatever letter of the alphabet you wish to place on Paredes' position. the fact remains he is a player who moves the ball quickly whether long or short.
He is the complete opposite of Emre Can in that respect.
He also has superb vision and can pick a pass which others don't see.
He has a great shot on him and takes corners and free kicks.
Compared to Naby Keita, Paredes is a world beater. Keita is a ball winner, his distribution is average. He's ok at 2 yard sideways passes. Keita offers very little more than Can.
We need more than little short passes across the midfield, we need players with vision. Paredes would be a huge upgrade on our current midfield. Keita would be more of the same - loads of possession and no penetration.


6.) 12 Mar 2017 12:12:50
I wouldn't bite the bullet on that though. I am not sure but everytimeI have seen him play he looked like a proper number 4. Just ahead of the CB's and carrying forward. If he could do a job at the back then I am happy to buy him coz he is excellent on the ball not many hard core DM ain't though.

Disagree on Emre Can's replacement criteria with you MK. We simply do not need another B2B attacking midfielder. Can was played as a DM hence his replacement should be the deepest lying midfielder.


7.) 12 Mar 2017 13:07:43
I largely agree Ron. That is primarily what makes him an upgrade on Can. His instinctive passing and movement doesn't ever look forced. He is a natural footballer. He is everything we wanted that young 20 year old Emre Can to become, and more. I do feel Can was badly let down by Rodgers and Lowe, who both wasted his early years of development playing him in defence.

As you also pointed out Ron, Paredes is a set piece specialist which is something we lack, to put it lightly.

I think he is a good player for sure, but that widely accepted view on the need to adjust our midfield set up would need to be actioned by Klopp. In our current system, Paredes doesn't have the discipline to play Hendo's holding role, he doesn't have the stamina/ power to play Gini's box to box role, and he doesn't suit Lallana's slightly more advanced position. Obviously Klopp could try Paredes in a midfield 3 with a different role in the team to any of the above, but then it has a knock on affect to this whole fluid front 4/ 5 that we have going on. Maybe it could work, but I am not sure on that one.

If Klopp was to put Paredes alongside Henderson in a classic central midfield pairing though and push Gini/ Lallana on a bit to play anywhere in a 3 behind the striker (where they both have previous to score double figures anyway) then I could see Paredes being an absolutely brilliant signing for us.

Paredes was tried in a defensive midfield role at the base of a diamond by Empoli and it really didn't flatter him. His creativity was wasted, his goal threat was stifled, and he gave away a lot of silly fouls picking up a lot of yellow cards in the process. He just doesn't have the awareness or the discipline to play the role. Yet as an all out attacking midfielder he would likely be starting from a position too close to opposition territory. His strengths are driving into opposition territory so I don't know how he would cope with having to find space in between the lines as Lallana or Coutinho can do. That is not something easily taught.

Is he potentially good enough to justofy breaking up the system we have spent all season perfecting? Possibly, but it couldn't hurt to have alternative options in the squad anyway and Paredes is a specialist at opening up defensive teams from the midfield.


8.) 12 Mar 2017 22:31:48
I disagree with most on here as I think Keita would be a better fit. He would just sit in front of the back four, he has a better passing range than given credit for. If Hendo and Wijnaldum/ Lallana knew someone was always behind them they would have more of a licence to push further forward. If Keita covered then other players could do the attacking stuff.


9.) 13 Mar 2017 05:14:59
Sadly looks like Keita might have some serious health issues - hopefully he is ok.


 

 

10 Mar 2016 13:57:24
Hey Eds, any truth in the rumors linking LFC with Jonas Hector and Timo Horn, both of FC Cologne? Apparently the club had scouts watch them quite often this season. Quality players both of them imo. Would be significant upgrades on Migs and Moreno.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - There is known interest in Horn from another English side but I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time. Hector would be a very odd choice if Liverpool were interested - he is very much a defender who doesn't get forward much.}


 

 

11 Mar 2015 05:16:57
Hey eds, any update on Brad Smith's contract situation? Does he have a future at LFC or do u expect him to move on? Hope he gets a chance as i feel heis a much better option than Enrique at LWB and LB.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was likely to move on, but I don't know if he has changed that over the course of this season. He was being given the season to prove himself.}


1.) 11 Mar 2015 11:37:27
He didn't sign the contract LFC wanted him to, so he was re-called from his loan and asked to play in the reserves. I expect him to leave this summer.


 

 

09 Oct 2014 09:41:30
Lots of rumors flying around about Reus to LFC? Any truth to this eds?

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


1.) 09 Oct 2014 11:53:46
This rumor just never dies.


2.) Sounds like the same old stuff doing the rounds again. Nothing doing, though would be a nice surprise if he did come to LFC.


3.) 10 Oct 2014 05:16:47
Not strictly LFC related, Ed002, but any insight as to where he might end up? Or do you see him staying at BVB?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot say where he will end up but Dortmund have held talks with Manchester City and a third party acting on behalf of PSG has enquired after his availability. Barcelona would like to agree a January 2016 move but it is unsure if that would suit the player. Dortmund will not want to sell to Bayern Munich but they have aging forwards they need to look to replacing and may push for a deal. If Liverpool were to lose Sterling they might look to Reus. If Real Madrid were to lose Ronaldo they might also look to Reus. Arsenal has shown previous interest but I am not convinced there is anything there right now.}


4.) 10 Oct 2014 16:06:41
Very interesting. Cheers for the response, Ed002, it's appreciated.

So watched the Man Utd game against West Ham and can definitely conclude that Jose will get them challenging for the title. Their attack was sublime, powerful, pacy and unforgiving. On top of that, they have one of the best defences in the league.
The BPL trophy imo will go to Manchester one way or the other.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, West Ham rolled over and let them tickle their bellies. Bilic was far too busy having a cozy chat with Jose on the sidelines to actually do anything about his team having their arses handed to them. His job is on the line and yet he does nothing to change things tactically when anyone can see they are getting beaten? Terrible manager that man.}


1.) 14 Aug 2017 04:49:57
Nevertheless the trophy ends up in Manchester one way or the other. I sense unrest and an eventual implosion between Conte and the Chelsea board and their season will derail at some point considering they have a squad as threadbare as ours. Spurs have a brilliant first 11 but lack depth and they may have to sacrifice other competitions to make top4 this season. Arsenal will depend on Sanchez to stay and play a blinder to ensure a return to UCL football.
LFC on the other hand have a lot of work to do in the transfer market to keep pace with the rest bar Everton. Our defense is shocking and even one injury to one of our midfielders and attackers will expose the lack of depth and quality in the squad. Go help the club if anything happens to firmino, Mane or Salah coz then its back to kids like Origi and Solanke leading our line.


2.) 14 Aug 2017 06:17:38
When you get too spend £200mil a summer you should be expected to win the league and other trophies.

Man city for me though due to the depth of the squad.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 08:14:34
Didn't see their defence do that much, partly cos the hammers couldn't pass to a team mate to save their lives and mainly because MU midfield and forwards squeezed the life out if them, and scared them witless when they lost the ball.


4.) 14 Aug 2017 08:23:12
Aren't we supposed to have 200 mill to spend this summer. What with the supposed propaganda of VVD 60-70 mill and the unnamed lad from Germany for 80 mill. We're good at tapping players up and leaking our interests to the press but when it comes to actually signing them our backbone appears to fall out.


5.) 14 Aug 2017 09:46:20
I always knew that WH would not even turn up and that Bilic would not be arsed to even do the basics on the sideline.


6.) 14 Aug 2017 10:12:53
Thought ManU were very good. We would be dreaming of a treble if we started the season off with a 4-0 victory. I picked manU for second, but they will be very close to the title imo.


 

 

12 Aug 2017 11:33:03
Migs, Moreno, Matip, Lovren, TAA, Can, Hendo, Gini, Salah, Mane, Firmino
Our starting line up against Watford. Can't wait to see our front 3 tear Watford a new one so we can get some respite from the Coutinho mess.

Isn't Dele Alli a huge Liverpool fan? Offer him 150k a week and his head might just turn
And give Levy what we get for Coutinho and u never know.

Indian Buzzer

If Dele Alli left Spurs he would likely be after quite a bit more than 150k a week in wages.

{Ed001's Note - if money was his reasoning, he would not be at Spurs in the first place.}

not even sure if we still have interest bt i wouldn't disagree to alli.


3.) 08 Aug 2017 04:51:47
Dele Alli is very much gettable. Huge LFC fan and im sure will want to play for us at some point. Do u really think he would let go of the opportunity to be the main man at his dream club? The only thing stopping us getting him is the price Levy would want for him, otherwise there is a good chance we could make a deal happen.

{Ed001's Note - why is he gettable? He doesn't want a move right now. That is the main issue, not Levy. I wish people would stop making up nonsense.}


4.) 08 Aug 2017 04:57:46
Fair point Ed001!


5.) 08 Aug 2017 05:08:35
I said at some point of his career Ed001. I believe he will be gettable in a few years time. Levy would be mad to let him go now. Never a realistic option but 2-3 years down the line we could use the "its now or never" trump card made famous by Barca.

{Ed001's Note - so fantasy dreams then? Only, if he carries on as he is, he will have the choice of the likes of Barca and Madrid and a price tag way out of our reach.}


6.) 08 Aug 2017 07:47:31
Deli Alli is not at all an acheivable target. Even if we made a record offer for a British player, do you not think United, City or Chelsea wouldn't come in and blow our offer out of the water if they thought Spurs were considering selling right now? (Which they aren't obviously and realistically, the lad can end up at Barcelona or Real in a year or two's time) .


7.) 08 Aug 2017 08:26:10
Ed001 - wasnt Alli gettable before he moved to spurs? Was that another ball dropped or fair to say that no one saw his star rising that quick?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Good move for Ings if it happens. Let's be honest, he would struggle to make the match day squad as Sturridge, Solanke and Origi are ahead of him. A good loan season with Newcastle and he could fetch 20 odd million at the end of the season.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 01 Aug 2017 05:08:59
A loan so to increase his value? If that is the plan for him, I don't like that as I really like him. And I don't think that is a good move for him. But who cares what I like and dislike anyway?


2.) 01 Aug 2017 05:41:51
Well what would u suggest Haizan? Have Ings play u23 football for the next few years and then sell him for peanuts?
Lets be honest, we have 4 forwards ahead if him in the pecking order out of which 2 are heavy Klopp favorites. Ings' time at LFC is up. Good player who no doubt would have done well at the club but its in everyone's best interests to move on.
He will want to play regularly sooner rather than later and I would rather see him scoring goals somewhere else than being fed false promises about first team football at LFC.


3.) 01 Aug 2017 07:58:31
I have nothing to suggest IB. I like what I have seen of him before, and wish to see more of him playing for Liverpool. That's all.


4.) 01 Aug 2017 08:58:28
He's just returned from a long lay off. Who's to say he won't force his way into the pecking order above Origi or Solanke? He's a proven Premier League goal scorer after all.


5.) 01 Aug 2017 10:08:14
After such a long lay off Ings needs games. He won't get that many opportunities with us so a loan makes sense. We can assess him to see how he's progressing and then make a decision on what to do next summer.

Klopp should tweak the midfield a little. I like Pochettino's setup better where he has Dier/ Wanyama dropping in as 3rd CB when the full backs bomb forward, allowing Alderweireld and Vertonghen to move further to the sides to defend. We should sign a CDM who can do something similar and give Matip and a new CB more breathing space and lesser ground to defend. This where I think a CB like VVD will come in handy. None of our fullbacks are particularly good at defending so having them play more as wingbacks will suit them especially TAA, Robertson and Moreno. Not sure Clyne will get a look in though coz he is poor going forward.

Of course he won't Ron, but we need to replace Coutinho don't we? Our midfield without one of Coutinho or Lallana looks pretty pedestrian to me. Lots of runners and energy but lacking in passing precision and creativity.

Tranmere's financial situation is indeed unfortunate Ed025. Everton would have no chance if it was down to the player and his ambitions.

Barca won't pay 130 million pounds excluding add ons for Coutinho. He will stay at LFC for one more season now. Barcelona want Dembele as well and have wasted 40 million euros on Paulinho. Plus they are trying to wrap up Inigo Martinez deal as well. Did u really expect them to make a 130 million pounds offer for Coutinho considering they want to sign 3 other expensive players as well?

Agreed Mk Scouser. And he has had a few years to train under Tony Pulis himself. The motto is defend first and foremost, and be brave and put your body on the line. Otamendi and Stones would not know what that means, Evans does and City need that now.

I'd take Evans over Otamendi and Stones tbh. Stones can't defend and Otamendi is City's very own Lovren. Evans is not the fanciest name around but City need players who defend first and foremost and Evans gives them that. Him and Kompany will make a decent partnership at the back, at least better than what we have got.
