Hi ed's

Quick question regarding LB position I know we have looked at both sessegnon from Fulham and Tymon from hull, have either of these got any sustenance behind them and which do you think would be a better option for us?

Apologies if it is too subjective!

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - sustenance? Erm, not sure what you mean by that. We have had both scouted and have interest in them, but so do a lot of others. Tymon is more likely, as he has less interest in him. I have not seen enough of either to even have an opinion on which would be the better option for us sorry.}


1.) 09 Mar 2017 21:15:52
It will be hard to find a LB, from an academy director it is the issue that all clubs are having. All the academies are scouring each other to look for a LB that has a good left foot, but can also get forward. We are not the only one having LB issue.


2.) 09 Mar 2017 22:18:42
Milner is doing a grand job if you ask me. So he's not left footed. so what! Better than Clyne!


3.) 10 Mar 2017 00:22:56
Apologies when I say sustanance I meant is there anything behind these rumours!

Yes I feel the same with the exposure that sessegnon is getting I think someone else will snap him up, although personally I think he should stay and play around first team at Fulham for a while!

Another question, it suprises me in this respect that we don't see young professionals staying at their local club because I think if your there working welll and playing plus family friends there it is one of the most important things at a young age!


4.) 10 Mar 2017 06:38:32
@The natural - better than Clyne is no barometer of quality. Both full-back positions need a change in personnel - for me TAA at right back and we sign a left back. God knows who but we sign one this summer.


5.) 10 Mar 2017 06:48:55
I have a question on Sessegnon rumours. 12 months ago from what I think I saw on here Liverpool looked at Chillwell. This came with a personal recommendation from close friend of Klopp with experience managing the lad at Huddersfield, BC was 2 years older and slightly more experienced and the money men wouldn't pay the asking price. Considering the interet Fulham are likely to want a few million as well so has anything changed to suggest the purse holders would release that much for this lad?

{Ed001's Note - depends a lot on whether Moreno leaves or not. He is available for transfer, if he goes it makes the requirement for a left back urgent again, especially with Juanma struggling with a few injuries.}


6.) 09 Mar 2017 23:33:45
I would rather sign Robertson myself. Think his attacking nature and excellent delivery would benefit us massively down the left.


7.) 10 Mar 2017 15:36:30
There's also that kid from Leeds Charlie Taylor, I think, who is highly-rated as well.


8.) 10 Mar 2017 20:26:00
Quite like Charlie Daniels at Bournemouth not a long term solution tho.

Hi Ed's,

Thanks for all the up to date knowledge!

Just wondering if there is any activity within the youth set up of any in's outs loans permanent deals.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there will be a little bit, but it is not something that easy to find out about. It is usually much quicker to do a deal like that, so they don't really give anyone time to get an advance warning. You don't have to iron out contracts as well as sort out a deal between the clubs, as the players remain on the same contract as they already were on.}

Any news on Luis Albertos move to Sevilla?

Thanks!

The Southern Red

1.) 27 Jul 2016 13:39:42
Apparently not :)


 

 

22 May 2016 19:50:09
Any update on Canos contract?

The Southern Red

 

 

03 Apr 2016 13:50:17
sorry for the numerous Questions,

but any updates on those players on trial, i believe one was an indian international?

The Southern Red

1.) 03 Apr 2016 16:10:17
The Indian kids were training with the U18s, for two weeks. It was not a trial.


2.) 03 Apr 2016 16:33:37
17 yo Yan Dhanda. Birmingham born though.


3.) 04 Apr 2016 04:20:51
It's not Danda, who is on a youth contract at LFC, and has been for 2 years.

Lallianzuala and Mawihmingthanga were just training with the U18s. They play for LFC's Indian academy team, in India.

Hi All,

I've been wanting to do this myself however i feel like i haven't been watching the U23's enough to pass judgement!

So have a request for either the ed's or any other posters who would be willing to slowly do a review of the current U23 squad of how their season has gone and what future should hold for them!

just thought it would be something interesting other than rumours as i know quite a few of them are reaching an age where they should be playing regular football or are being overtaken by a younger generation!

Thoughts?

The Southern Red

1.) 17 Apr 2017 21:52:27
I'd be interested in hearing more 👍🏻.


2.) 17 Apr 2017 21:57:57
I'll see what I can do mate but I won't make any promises. If anyone else can do it that would be great.


3.) 17 Apr 2017 23:08:47
i'd be happy to throw in a list of our U23's and give a brief summary of my opinion but i have limited viewing of game time this season!

or perhaps if people put in requests i will do research on specific players!


4.) 18 Apr 2017 08:23:26
Looks like the u23s will finish third in the league this year and had some outstanding performances and a few slips (mostly when their regulars have been sitting on first team bench to be fair) .

From what I've seen a few of the most talented like TAA, Woodburn, Ejaria got given a shot in the firsts squad this year, and most notably behind them I'd say Wilson has been a standout with 28 goals already this season! Ojo and Ejaria other notables but suffered injuries and not sure how badly that'll set them back.

Aside from those, Rhian Brewster has also stepped up well from the u18s, and despite only 17 looks like has all the attributes to make it in a couple of years time, he's made a big difference since coming in. Grabara at GK also has something about him IMO by shared the spot with Keleher who's also highly rated, and there are some others like Virtue, Stewart, Jordan Williams that have been very consistent if not spectacular. Juanma did well initially but now injured.

Others notables on the fringe but maybe needing a couple of years to develop still are Yan Dhanda (Llalana like player), Toni and Madger Gomes.

Overall I'd like to think TAA, Woodburn, Ojo, Wilson have the most promise to make the step next year and I'd love to see them all given a real shot, but not sure how we'll find game time for all three forwards and if not who will miss out. Perhaps Ojo need to go on loan again to play regularly.

Not sure anyone in midfield or defence ready yet but I wouldn't rule out perhaps a shot for Matty Virtue in cup games or Jordan Williams.

In a year or twos time I'd hope to see Grabara, Yan Dhanda and Brewster pushing hard to be considered.

Hi Ed's

hope you are well!

Quick question what are your thoughts on Ojo and Wilson how come we have not seen more of them on the bench atleast i know last year Ojo gave us a different dimension, especially with all the issues with illness and injury!

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - Ojo had a bad injury and has only just got back to full fitness, but not to full form. Wilson is just being mostly left to progress with 90 minutes in the U23s rather than a few minutes as a sub.}


1.) 08 Apr 2017 11:06:03
Ed001, who do you think Klopp will go with to fill in for Mane. TAA or Woodburn, maybe move up Wijnaldum into attack and stick Grujic in midfield? There is also a possibility that Sturridge could feature but doubt he is anywhere near full fitness.

{Ed001's Note - Origi surely?}


2.) 08 Apr 2017 11:16:39
Sorry, should have added if Coutinho did not start.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok, in that case I think it will be TAA, though I would like to see what Grujic does, he would require too much in the way of change.}


3.) 08 Apr 2017 11:26:18
If it were up to me I would start with Grujic in midfield and move Wijnaldum up in attack. Obviously Wijnaldum not going to run rampant like Mane but being involved in the box more often could see him getting a few more goals. There is no doubt he can finish.


4.) 08 Apr 2017 12:19:53
just how bad was Ojo's injury i know it was back related but have they had to be very careful of it?

{Ed001's Note - yes it could have been a career ender if not careful as backs are difficult.}


5.) 08 Apr 2017 13:28:21
Stewart to play as the stopper with Wijnaldum and Can either side of him playing proper B2B Midfielders. Origi and Firmino either side of Sturridge.

Hi Ed's

just finished watching the U23 game.

I have got to say we do have some talent in our ranks, i just hope that we do something with it!

do you see us using Gomez for the remainder of the season at all?

TAA, Gruijc and Gomez standout for me, although everyone put in a good shift!

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - Gomez is very much in the long term plans, but it would take an injury, or a couple of meaningless end of season games, for him to get much more time in the league this season.}


1.) 14 Mar 2017 06:45:19
Is there any chance of TAA getting game time?

{Ed001's Note - without injuries he will get sub appearances.}


2.) 14 Mar 2017 15:12:27
It was an excellent performance from the U23s and Chelsea barely got a kick. Lovren played close to 60 mins, partnering Gomez at the back. TAA has been excellent this season but let's not get carried away, this is his first season at the U23s after stepping up from the U18s. He will be fine as 2nd choice for Clyne for the time being. He also needs to grow physically.

A word for Matty Virtue who was very impressive; playing alongside Stewart and Grujic, he was everywhere, doing simple things and breaking up play.


3.) 14 Mar 2017 16:34:01
Thanks for the reply Ed001 would it be safe to read into that, considering his age that they see him as being one to come through to regular first team in the next couple of years?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


 

 

12 Mar 2017 13:02:27
Hi ed's,

hope you are well and excited for this afternoon!

I know this isn't specifically liverpool related but with regards to young young players playing regularly there is a worry that they will over exert themselves at a young age!

What is the best way to keep someone like sessegnon from burning out too early seeing as he is becoming a regular at the age of 16?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - it is the day to day training that is more of the problem than playing regular footie. It is too intense for a kid usually. They very rarely get a separate routine that allows them to develop.}


 

 

10 Dec 2016 13:26:43
Hi eds,

Just a quick question with regards to Brannagan, I know he was pushing last year and was hoping for more involvement this year, but hasn't had much of a chance.

Is he not performing or is it more others are ahead of him at present?

Cheers.

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - A lot was expected of Brannagan but the planned loan being called off has certainly disrupted this season and he is, as far as I am aware, back with the Under 21/23 squad at the moment so he will not be in the immediate plans.}

i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

That is a shame!

Although I know he is not going to be "our saviour" I feel for the lad.

Are we assuming Gomez is going to be the 4th being used in the FA cup?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - if he is up to fitness by then. He is still feeling his way back.}

speaking of beale being an excellent youth coach!

I know there are quite a few famous academies in europe that produce talent! who would you say are some of the most respectable coaches in and around the youth environment?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say, because as soon as they prove to be good they get promoted to work with the first team.}

It is a brave move and I hope it works out for him! a lot of respect for what he did for our youngsters! What do you think of his replacement?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - honest answer is that I can't for the life of me remember who replaced him! I know I should but it has escaped me completely.}
