Hi Ed,

If we fail with Brandt, would we like to other left midfielders/ wingers for that position or is it that JK wants the players specifically.

For example, Lemar continues to impress for Monaco and plays in a similar role to Brandt.

Puzzled Red

{Ed002's Note - Lemar is an option Bayern Munich has also considered but Monaco don't want to lose him as they are in danger of losing others this summer. Liverpool has shown no interest in Lemar but another side who has were told they did not wish to let him go, I suggestet that Max Meyer might be an option but he is more of a Coutinho than a Brandt. Rafa Silva has again been watched by Liverpool - perhaps as a potenial option Julian Brandt. They were keen when he was at Braga and having only moved last summer Benfica would be looking for a high fee - but they do need the money and would accept a lower amount than his release clause.}

1.) 02 Apr 2017 20:08:54
I honestly cannot believe we are still scouting Rafa Silva, he is far too small for the Premier League and he isn't really talented enough to compensate for it. I am no pro scout but there so many more suitable options for the premier league out there.

2.) 02 Apr 2017 21:26:27
Rafa Silva / Lazar Markovic / Mohammed Salah. All look the same. Running all day with little to no end product!

3.) 03 Apr 2017 05:06:23
Salah has no end product? You might need to cast your net wider and have a look at other wingers than Insigne.

Rafa Silva has struggled since his move. A friend who is a big Benfica supporter tells me that while he has talent, he has struggled to apply it at Benfica since his move.

4.) 03 Apr 2017 14:02:03
Any news about Gnabry of Bremen? Wouldn't he be a good choice?

5.) 03 Apr 2017 14:06:07
Lazar Markovic is also a talent!

6.) 03 Apr 2017 15:37:36
Salah no end product? You probably need to stop being obssessed with Lorenzo and get out more to watch other wingers in the Serie A as clearly, you've never seen him play since he left Chelsea.

7.) 03 Apr 2017 17:45:37
Seriously unimpressed with Insigne.
What does Harry see in him? Bang bang average.

8.) 03 Apr 2017 18:41:32
Well Brandt dad/ agent said there is no deal in place for him to join Bayern. Hopefully that will give us a life line. I know a lot folks here are saying what is the big deal about him. You could have said the same thing about Mane when we signed him. He was not playing as well for Southampton as he had played for us, when a player for a system he can strive extremely well. You should not look strictly at stats in terms of goals and assists, but passing percentage, chances created, shot taken, and shots on target. A player could set up a 100 shots on goal, but if the end player does not finish how is that his fault.



22 Dec 2016 12:39:59
Talk about LFC looking at Gabigol (Gabriel Barbosa) - Ed would you mind shedding some light on what's gone wrong for him at Inter?

They spent a lot on money to sign him in the summer and yet he hasn't even played 90 mins yet. Was it due to the change of manager or is he simply not good enough?

Thanks and have a great Christmas holidays fella!

Puzzled Red

{Ed002's Note - He is not getting any game time and that has made him unhappy. Is is young and in a new environment and things are unlikely to change. A number of sides have shown an interest in taking him on loan - Palmeiras, Sao Paulo, Santos and Fluminense (but none from Brazil could afford to buy him nor pay his wages), Marseille, Las Palmas and Leicester. Wagner Ribeiro was in England and did speak to another English side about him. Liverpool has not spoken with his agent nor Inter about him at this time.}

I can already feel the ominous dissapointment on the site growing if/when De Boer is brought in.

A few of the pros that come to mind are:
- he's a winner (titles - albeit in a lesser league)
- European experience (champions league - although never further than second round I believe)
- Able to coach a team well under a club structure which delegates transfers and 'philosophy of play' to other staff
- Success working with younger players

Just a few that came to me

Hi Ed002, based on player valuations given by their respective clubs, which of Icardi and Bony is most viable? Admittedly they both seem to be pricey.

Puzzled Red

{Ed002's Note - I can only guess, but Bony I would think.}



29 Jul 2014 21:31:07
Eds after reading the rumour re Lucas leaving on loan to Napoli, I wanted to ask would the club seriously consider a loan offer for him? I hope we wouldn't be that naive.

We are not blessed with too many defensive midfielders and although some posters might say Lucas isn't the best there is, he is a good player and I think we need to be careful not to dismantle our whole team by adding in too many new players.

If a good offer came in that the club felt it simply couldn't refuse then that's different, but a loan deal? That would be stupid I think.

Puzzled Red

{Ed001's Note - last I heard the club were not interested in a loan move.}

Question for the Eds, if Keita did come in, do we think we have space for him? I know Lucas and Stewart are leaving but those two are different styles of players to Keita from what I can tell.

Puzzled Red

{Ed001's Note - of course we do.}

1.) 27 May 2017 19:06:02
Fair enough, I'm still not sure it's a priority position for us this window though. However if high quality players are available we should sign them.

2.) 27 May 2017 20:11:11

That looks like a very competent midfield to me.

3.) 27 May 2017 21:06:28
Yes but if klopp gets his left winger coutinho is likely to drop into midfield. And a lb means Milner too.
Hendo lallana can wiji Milner coutinho grugic and another make 7 for 3 spots.
My feeling is it will mean coutinho will be sold.

4.) 27 May 2017 21:14:37
Zero chance he's coming though.

Would of been good.

5.) 27 May 2017 22:57:56
Can't possibly fit them all in to starting eleven. but we need a much stronger squad than we currently have to cope with so many matches.
Strength in depth is key.

6.) 27 May 2017 23:54:37
So if Hendo starts, couts drops in and Keita starts where does that leave can, Lallana and gini?

7.) 28 May 2017 00:41:54
Seamless rotation without changing the intensity of the Performance.



21 May 2017 21:18:11
Special shout out to Simon Mignolet for a real turn around in performances in the latter part of the season.

Much improved on taking crosses into the box and looks to have come on a lot.

Karius to stay and push Mignolet for that number 1 jersey. Let him play cups and European games and make his claim!

Well done Simon!

Puzzled Red

{Ed025's Note - hes been very good puzzled, but expect karius to start at No 1 next season mate..

1.) 21 May 2017 21:58:33
Yeah hasn't Karius been promised number one by Klopp next season.?

{Ed025's Note - thats apparently true bobby, of course things can change in football never know karius could catch a ball.. :)

2.) 21 May 2017 22:07:22
Migs is now reaching his prime years for a goalkeeper so fully expect him to start the season as our no 1.

{Ed025's Note - promises have been made to karius ace and if migs does start as No1 then a certain amount of credibility will be lost, migs has been very good but it could be another false dawn from him mate.

3.) 21 May 2017 23:20:37
I don't care what's been promised, Id lay money on Migs starting next season, vastly improved for me and anyone who thinks the likes of Pickford is better is mad.

{Ed025's Note - i agree that pickford is no better than migs at the moment richie, he has been over hyped because he has been so busy playing in front of the worst defence in the game, karius came with a big reputation but as yet i fail to see why but klopp does apparently mate..



21 May 2017 16:50:36
Got the result we needed, good performance in the end and another big important goal from Gini. Well done all!

Roll on next season and hopefully some exciting summer arrivals.

Now what do we do for 3 months? 😂.

Puzzled Red

1.) 21 May 2017 17:04:01
It's been emotional. Season rescued, well done Klopp. Let's buy some quality, get a solid back four and crack on.



20 May 2017 20:55:30
I know we don't have mega bucks but we will have a fair bit to spend, like we do every year.

A summer where we move on the players KP doesn't use/ want (there's a general agreement on here as to those will LIKELY be) alongside the below summer additions would be successful in my book:

Left back: Sessegnon
Left midfield: Brandt
Striker: Werner

IF we keep all our best players and don't need to replace anyone then I think that will be enough signings. Minimal change is best, we are not far away from competing for the title. I know a right back and a centre back would be cool but our problem in previous years has been trying too much change every window i. e. transition after transition.

I don't think any of the signings would break the bank and all would significantly improve problem areas for our team.

Puzzled Red

1.) 20 May 2017 21:58:28
If we sign a striker I'd like it to be Sandro Rodriguez personally. He reminds me of Suárez the way he plays.

2.) 20 May 2017 23:25:48
I would prefer Mendy as first choice at left back.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool sent scouts to watch him play today in Rennes but he was dropped for the game. Monaco dropped Mendy and played Jorge instead - and he scored.}

3.) 21 May 2017 00:21:02
I like Mendy a lot as well. Not sure his personality matches what Klopp looks for (I'm thinking about the Sakho situation) .

From a piece in the Guardian:

"[Mendy] was suspended for five matches after blowing a fuse and booting Lyon’s Corentin Tolisso in an off-the-ball outburst; then, during Ligue 1’s winter break and while he was still banned, Mendy took a holiday to Brazil and decided to tweet a photo of himself ambling around Rio in a Marseille jersey. Some Monaco fans were outraged; Mendy laughed it off and suggested anyone getting het up about what he wears should learn to be as laid-back as he can be, tweeting that they were “making a lot of noise about nothing”. "

Gael Clichy is available on a free ;)

4.) 21 May 2017 01:26:08
Let's sign jorge then :)

5.) 21 May 2017 01:44:41
Mendy's 22 years old and will be expensive. If by any chance he comes to LFC, just assume any potential move for Sessegnon is completely off. Its one or the other. Milner I still expect to be one of the 2 LBs we will have in the first team squad next season.

6.) 21 May 2017 08:57:53
Sessegnon loaned back for a season and Clichy on two year deal. Like the sound of that.



10 May 2017 21:03:51
Let's hope Saints do is a favour here.

We could end up with top 4 due to the Arsenal and Man U being poor more than our own success. Either way.

Puzzled Red

1.) 10 May 2017 21:33:42
well that ends that hope then.

2.) 10 May 2017 21:36:44
you might have jinxed it PR, just to add to the drama, the Gunners are now 2 goals up, its Gunner be tight, and down to the last game .

3.) 10 May 2017 23:58:07
West Ham is now a must win game if we want to make top 4 because Stoke is going to snail it in just as the Saints did today as they just went through the motions. Time for our boys to step up going into this weekend, it is still in our hands and that should motivate us to finish the job. Fear of failure will not cut it because if you are afraid to fail, you will.

Is he better than Moreno? I'm not sure.

Kante was a steal and due to a champions league club release clause.

Keita is a very good player. Not sure why you're hating on him just because he's not as good as Kante. Not many players are, Kante is one of the best. It's like bashing Coutinho because he's not as good as Neymar.

Hm, wages/ bonuses? Signing on fee? Agent fee? Any of these could hold up a player signing a contract? Not just playtime promises.

Maybe Gomez on loan to Bournemouth would suit all parties. Then a decision can be made on him after he has had a season of football under his belt as to whether he has/ will be able to recover his form pre-injury.

Klavan is a back up, and as a back up he is fine.

Brandt and Perreira are of high quality. As are Mendy, Naby Keita and Sessegnon would Ed01 all alluded to.

Some fair points Big Al. However I would say two things:

1. Gini was our player with the most assists last season. On top of that, he scored some big and importantly decisive goals last year (City and Middlesbrough come to mind, I know there's a few more too) . Would you not agree he had a good season?

2. Mignolet after Xmas was very good in net. He's had a tough time over the last few seasons but the 2nd half of this season he was brilliant. After working with the coaching team on being stronger when collecting crosses we saw a notable increase in performance here. Does he not deserve to hold his place?

Definitely wouldn't take Ginis place.

The guy Klopp signed last summer for almost £30m and has had a great season finishing with most assists?

Don't think so Max.

I really don't think anyone is taking anyones place - it's a squad game and will be even more so with Europe!

Super Mane, Emre Can has added goals to his game? He got more goals last season than his previous 2 combined. He's not prolific but he's never going to be he's not that sort of player. Not all your midfield need to be goalscorers case in point Kante and Matic for the league winners or Dembele and Wanyama for Spurs. Emre has more goals than each of them by the way :)

Puzzled Red

{Ed025's Note - please dont mention emre can in the same sentence as kante or dembele puzzled..

Hm was Matip really much better?

Looked very very nervous to me and his passing which is usually his best asset was poor. Maybe just the occasion got to him.

We have for centteback for next year if we assume Sakho goes but really none have been overly impressive. We need some stability next season and a decision needs to made of Klavan or Gomez are good enough, if not replace one with someone who is.

Puzzled Red

{Ed025's Note - klavan is certainly not good enough puzzled, the jury is still out on gomez..
