any truth in that Liverpool had a €35m bid for Samuel Chukwueze rejected last month?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool picked up another RW in Minamona last month.}

1.) 10 Feb 2020 18:43:25
Thought it was rubbish but wanted to check!

{Ed002's Note - Unless of course Salah is leaving?}

2.) 11 Feb 2020 23:55:38
Wow if Salah were to leave never heard you say that before!

3.) 12 Feb 2020 21:48:01
yes, if Salah was to leave ha, I don't think so,
in fact I am sure that I saw in the last couple of games, Mo Salah has got his mojo back, watch him score another ten goals or more .

Hi Ed’s I have tried to searching but couldn’t find anything.

Is there any news on Gini and his contract situation, do you think he is considering other options? Or merely waiting till the end of the summer to make a decision?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware, it is just a case of dotting the i's and crossing the t's. It is meant to be just a case of negotiating the details as he wants to stay and Klopp wants him to stay. I have not heard of any change since, but these things can be really slow as lawyers have to check the whole contract out each time a change is made and they don't rush!}

1.) 27 Jan 2020 22:57:40
Thanks for the update!

Would be very sad if he left such a good player and a decent person!

2.) 29 Jan 2020 13:39:18
He's turning 30 soon, so I imagine if there is an issue it will be about the length of the contract.



26 Jan 2020 12:00:11
Any news on Keheller leaving on loan?

The Southern Red



21 Jan 2020 17:04:16
Dan Atherton heading out on loan to marine, good luck to the lad!

The Southern Red



20 Jan 2020 21:01:23
Are we looking at Jude Bellingham?

The Southern Red

1.) 21 Jan 2020 07:50:32
my guess is that he is priced too highly for a 16 year old.

2.) 21 Jan 2020 11:58:08
Yes we are and so are a number of EPL clubs such as Manchester United as well as other European teams, he could be cheap as he has not signed a pro contract and LFC have the Elliot wild card to play.

3.) 21 Jan 2020 15:41:27
Yes we are and so are many other EPL and European teams, he is managed by his family. This may swing in our favour with how we have looked after Harvey Elliot.

4.) 21 Jan 2020 15:42:02
Always rather fancied his mum, Linda.

5.) 21 Jan 2020 16:51:08
Wont happen move on.

6.) 21 Jan 2020 17:04:42
What’s the elliot wild card?

7.) 21 Jan 2020 18:24:20

Going to be an interesting summer, lots of the old guard heading out freeing up quite a lot of wage bill. Given our recent spike will be good to get these guys off for new players.

Likely to lose Lallana, Lovren, Clyne, Shaqiri, which is over £350k pw!

The Southern Red

1.) 09 Mar 2020 13:30:15
Personally can't see Chelsea or United being near us next season either. They've both hit a purple patch an people get carried away, just like when we went from the best team in the world to the wheels are falling off after a couple of bad results.

Of course a lot can change in football but a lot depends on city, do they stick or twist with Pep, who do they bring in and sell as to whether we have a challenge next season.

2.) 09 Mar 2020 14:12:54
Apologies my original post was meant for the thread above 🤦‍♂️

I'd be more than happy with Jones, Williams and Elliot replacing lallana, Clyne and Shaqiri as the impact they have had this season has been minimal unfortunately.

3.) 09 Mar 2020 17:21:11
Good thing about United's current purple patch is that it probably keeps Ole in the job for another season 😁.



21 Feb 2020 13:03:47
Hi Ed’s,

Just wanted to ask your view of the new training ground. Where do you think it will stand against the other teams in the Prem?

Are you impressed with it?

And finally I know Leicester are also building a new training ground, but it’s costing almost twice as much, other the land is there anything that they are doing differently/ better?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I am just sad about losing Melwood, spent a lot of time there. However the upgrade is needed and it will put us on a par with the best of the rest.

The land will be almost the entire difference mate. Other than that, it is difficult to know as I haven't really looked into it. I would need to find out.}

1.) 21 Feb 2020 22:59:17
Can I ask what took you to melwood ed01.

{Ed001's Note - depends on which time you mean? A couple of times with college when I was studying horticulture. }



16 Feb 2020 10:39:44
Ed i know that there has been a lot of posts on fridays news, but what re your views of any potential league title being stripped from city?

do you agree with this? and do you think it should just be a year with no winner or handed to second place.

whilst it can be seen as unfair being beaten by a team who have cheated to win, i wouldn't want to be handed a title by default.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I can understand the thinking of stripping them, I think they should just to deter others from cheating, if they are found guilty of course. However I don't agree with just giving them to others. It wouldn't feel like it was won fair and square.}

1.) 16 Feb 2020 11:16:24
similar to the Astros cheating scandal, they should strip them off their titles and vacate them.

{Ed025's Note - and award them to liverpool i suppose faith, then the great stevie G can claim that elusive title winning medal he always wanted....wheres that bleedin sick bucket?.. :)

2.) 16 Feb 2020 11:16:39
Didn’t inter Milan get a few titles given to them after Juventus were stripped? Part of me would like the titles but forever more manu fans would be singing that we never won them.

3.) 16 Feb 2020 11:28:19
I think they should be stripped of the titles they won while cheating, seems only fair.
Then the second placed teams should be declared champions for them years. It would be nothing to celebrate though of course.
I seem to remember similar happening years ago in Italy when a few teams where found out to be cheating and got titles stripped.

{Ed025's Note - i need another sick bucket...and a big one now..

4.) 16 Feb 2020 11:33:33
I was literally going to type the same question Southern . I think Juve had thier titles stripped when they were punished for different reasons and they were handed to the second place teams. I agree totally with Ed001 though, I wouldn't want Liverpool to be handed the 2014 title, I would just erase it and say no over all winner. there's no honour in winning a title because the team above you was deemed to have broken rules. And not the players who played the games mind, the people that ran the club.

5.) 16 Feb 2020 11:37:22
Should just go down as no winner imo. You can’t celebrate it and it would be tarnished as winning by default.

6.) 16 Feb 2020 11:46:52
I can’t see there is a point in it they celebrated winning it it’s all over now it’s just goes on the record but they joy of winning is not there. Saying that drugs cheats at the olympics can lose there gold medals years later as cheating is cheating but I would not want the title like that us fans would get more stick for claiming that than chucking one away.

{Ed002's Note - So if they opened up all of Liverpool's past transgressions and the payments made to other clubs and one individual from the slush fund, you would be happy with that?}

7.) 16 Feb 2020 12:20:34
Personally, I want absolutely nothing to do with City's 2014 title should they be stripped of it. We should have won the title that year and we have only ourselves to blame for that.

8.) 16 Feb 2020 12:57:21
I get what some of you are saying but the thought of us doing a treble of league titles in one year is too funny to pass up.

9.) 16 Feb 2020 13:20:36
I would feel sick too, that BR is the 1st Liverpool manager to win the PL via some arbitrary means.

Strip city of the title, sure, if that is what the authorities decide. And just leave it as that. Won’t want some arbitrary means of winning it.

10.) 16 Feb 2020 14:31:44
I think it would be pretty classless to strip the City players of the title, in reality they earned it by playing the best football that season. A European ban on the other hand makes sense, no Champs league and a couple of their better players potentially leaving is punishment enough.

11.) 16 Feb 2020 13:55:47
Wouldn't want any of those titles and I don't want them banned. They will be able to focus on league.

12.) 16 Feb 2020 15:06:49
I'd still take it, the league that is. If they cheated to beat us then it's only fair that we get the title. I wouldn't complain if it was the other way around (well I probably would a bit, but) I remember Linford Christine's Olympic bronze getting upgraded to silver and it felt like justice.

13.) 16 Feb 2020 17:10:35
Think athletics is different in that it’s the individual who cheats, none of the city players did and were the best over 38 games.

14.) 16 Feb 2020 17:24:42
A good point wyred.

15.) 16 Feb 2020 16:37:17
ed002 am sure I said I would not want the league like that for me once is gone its gone. this year is a joy to watch to win the league and it would have been back then but we did not so its over.

{Ed002's Note - The issue is about opening old woulds.}

16.) 16 Feb 2020 22:47:03
If it happens and we get the 2014 title (I really can't see that happening) I personally wouldn't count it or celebrate it.

17.) 16 Feb 2020 23:03:53
I can’t believe some are saying we should be given titles. Regardless of what the club have done financially it’s 11 blokes against 11 blokes and they were better than us. We earned nothing so we should get nothing.

By all means punish them if they have to but you can’t reward us for ultimately finishing second! It would put us level with Utd on 20 titles but we didn’t actually win 2 of them? Nah, you can’t be doing that it’s ridiculous!

18.) 16 Feb 2020 11:59:18
Ed025 love your banter mate. I’d probably keep that bucket though as Everton seem to be in the same boat as City and that boat is sinking quickly. You might need that bucket to scoop all the water out 😂.

{Ed025's Note - love it JK..

19.) 16 Feb 2020 22:36:27
25, you'll drown yourself alive with that bitter juice you sipping mate lol I said vacate, that just means strip their name from the record books and leave it at that. Don't award to the second place team. I rekon that's naff.

{Ed025's Note - i dont get FFP at all faith, the best team wins the league and thats it, so man city have spent more money than the what!, if i can afford a nicer car than my neighbour then whats wrong with that?, its just jealousy in my book mate..

20.) 17 Feb 2020 04:21:34
If the game is simply 11 blokes vs 11 blokes regardless of what’s done financially then why even have FFP? It appears City had an unfair advantage that year so strip them of the title.

21.) 17 Feb 2020 09:11:00
Why should we not get the 2014 title if they are stripped of it? they got it by cheating. They paid transfer fees for players that played that season by cheating while FSG stayed within rules.

Its only fair we get the title, rules are explained to everyone.

Fernandinho 40 million euros
Navas 20 million euros
Negredo 24 million euros

Just to name a few.

They would probably not win the title if they were not able to get those players any a few before them.

{Ed001's Note - they might not have but they also might well have won it. Unless it is match fixing that has been found, I don't see why titles should be stripped.}

22.) 17 Feb 2020 23:29:51
I don't think they should be stripped of the titles, however of they are found guilty they do need to be punished.
What about point deductions for future seasons or them be relegated. Are they viable options?

{Ed002's Note - The PL will need to be very careful about what the decide to do and how far they are prepared to go. They will discuss the potential can of worms and don’t forget they could end up with all clubs voting. They have no evidence to look at and what evidence there is relates to UEFA and not the PL. If they were to extrapolate the findings of UEFA (which could go on for a long time before confirmed post appeal and could have a crippling impact on UEFA and hasten a breakaway - even if it ends up being FIFA run, then they are open to major issues going forward.}



14 Feb 2020 09:22:52
Hi Ed's,

apologies not plucking names out of a hat, but i know a while ago we were looking at Malang Sarr as an option at the back.

i have noticed that his contract is running out this summer, do you think he hasn't kicked on to be worth having another look?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool sent scouts to watch Malang Sarr a couple of years or so ago. There has been nothing since then.}

1.) 14 Feb 2020 11:13:18
thanks ed! wasn't trying to pick random names, but with him being a left sided CB and can cover LB and out of contract wasn't sure if we had come back to look at him.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect a new contract to be agreed. Nice has a young side and a very good owner who will take advice on the squad - and indeed management.}

2.) 14 Feb 2020 13:36:01
i guess following on from that what are your views on viera as a manager?

i know like you say that have a young talented squad but don't seem to be seeing the results come through.

{Ed002's Note - Ligue 1 is tight this year but the results have been average. The club is coming out of a difficult period under the previous owners - who appointed Vieira after Lucien Favre left. Even though they had gotten to the CL under Favre it has dropped away since then - hence the upcoming assessment. There was a lot of bad feelings about the previous owners and players were far from happy but with the very likable Jim Ratcliffe buying the club that seems to have turned around. Vieira does know his limitations and pushed for Gilles Grimandi to join him after the morons at Arsenal fired him. Gilles is heading up the transfer work and has gotten two very highly rated players to join (Kasper Dolberg and Alexis Claude-Maurice), cleared the decks and got the scouts focussed. All of this has left Vieira to push on with the coaching - and his expertise is very much in the area of working with younger players who are willing to learn. So for now it is wait and see but if they don't make the Europa League there will no doubt be disappointment. But a good Sporting Director in Gilles and with a very good owner it is looking good going forward.}

3.) 14 Feb 2020 16:08:35
You may or may not want to answer this, Ed002, given it's too early in his career. But do you see Vieira as a competent manager?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but he needs the right support - the key is working with youngsters.}

4.) 15 Feb 2020 05:27:43
I think that's the mark of a good manager. Not just to know and be aware of their own capabilities and limitations, but to willingly bring in people who are good at what they lack and work with them.



06 Feb 2020 21:11:52
Hi Ed’s do you think the club still view full back as a priority?

Given Williams emergence for RB as well as Lewis and Larouci competing for a LB back up role.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - already said this in the summer was why we didn't buy one.}

1.) 06 Feb 2020 21:55:06
thanks ed, makes sense.

who is viewed as more of an option for the LB role, both seem to have their flaws and slightly differing approaches to the role.

{Ed001's Note - Lewis was the one before his injury, but Larouci impressed in pre-season and so we were seen as having the cover needed. I expect Lewis will move back ahead, he is more intelligent and more suited to the way we play.}

2.) 06 Feb 2020 23:43:11
Lewis and Williams as cover that work's for me lad's.

3.) 07 Feb 2020 03:00:14
More than happy with the full back cover now with Williams, Lewis and Hoever all expected to reach the very top. I certainly won't be advocating for the likes of Philipp Max as cover anymore.
Would rather have kids with high potential than expensive misfits like Mendy and Cancelo.

4.) 07 Feb 2020 09:03:57
Adam lewis seems too have a very good passing range but what he has too improve is work rate and defensive duties, same could be said of larouci.

5.) 07 Feb 2020 09:29:01
cool to have guys in the academy with potential for pushing through.

thanks ed!

from my limited watching of them, larouci has more skill and flair but lewis offers a better cross and defence.

is he seen as near to being called up to the international side, or is that more of the long term view.

completely agree on the youth front which is why i am not keen on us looking at cantwell, lallana leaving should be an opportunity for the likes of jones etc to step up.

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - I know little of the Algerian international side. Jones plays a different position to Lallana - hence LFC looking at a prior option to replace him in the correct position.}

why should jones go on loan? he has shown that he can offer something on the pitch currently.

I know people keep talking about how they played defensive this sat back etc, but I was very impressed with their energy!

Every player worked hard, closed down, stopped any counter, it was what they planned to do and achieved it!

We move on bring it to Anfield and scare the sh*t out of them.
