Javier Hernandez was a new name (for me anyway) linked today. His movement, determination and finishing ability ticking a lot of boxes although price will come into factor big time on this one.

The natural

1.) 27 Mar 2017 03:04:39
I think he will be heading to MLS next season. A move back to the PL is out of the picture for him, since he would want to be a first choice. With a new club going into Los Angeles they will most likely sign him.

Hi eds, heard a rumour from a friend of mine that we hold an interest in Matic off Chelsea for the summer.
First I've heard of it. Did you hear anything linking Liverpool to Matic?

The natural

{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool has not shown any interest in Matic, although there has been interest from elsewhere in him.}


1.) 18 Mar 2017 15:39:16
Guess Matic will replace Henderson? Ed002 said in the Sharkopod that Liverpool are unlikely to be signing any CM's unless Can leaves.


2.) 19 Mar 2017 08:45:14
He's too important to Chelsea for them to let go to anyone let alone us.


 

 

21 Jan 2017 23:08:49
Hi eds, to change the subject after the bad result today I thought I'd throw a possible rumour out there. Maybe you could shed some light.
Apparently we've had representatives at a recent Napoli game to scout one of their major players. Have you heard of us interested in any Napoli players? Possibly Martens? Insigne?

The natural

{Ed002's Note - I can't think of anyone and can't confirm interest in anyone - sorry.}


1.) 22 Jan 2017 10:24:40
Liverpool have sent a scout to AFCON, to look at 20yo Atalanta MF Franck Kessie and 21yo Lazio FW Keita Balde


2.) 22 Jan 2017 12:17:20
Cheers ed


3.) 24 Jan 2017 10:48:46
Is it true eds were looking at balde?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


4.) 24 Jan 2017 10:48:46
Is it true eds were looking at balde?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


5.) 24 Jan 2017 14:24:38
Cheers ed2. Thought as much


 

 

20 Dec 2016 14:48:03
Hi eds haven't posted in a while hope all are well. I notice how strangly quiet the rumour mill is for this time of year. Usually at this stage there's 10 new players linked everyday.
Can you foresee us doing any business in or out in January?
Injuries permitting, I don't see us doing anything in the January transfer window.

The natural

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I expect there is a decent chance Liverpool will make a change or two. They have been looking at players but January choices are often limited.}


1.) 20 Dec 2016 17:05:22
Which players have they been looking at Ed002? If it's not possible to mention names, the could you please possibly tell what sort of player positions are they looking at? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Read the posts and listen to the Sharkopod.}


2.) 20 Dec 2016 18:22:49
Ed2, where can I find the sharkopod?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would suggest searching Nick.}


3.) 20 Dec 2016 19:47:10
When is the next Sharkopod due Ed, anything on the horizon?

{Ed002's Note - There will be Sharkopods for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United this week.}


4.) 20 Dec 2016 20:48:51
Sharkopods sound fishy?


5.) 20 Dec 2016 22:29:17
Can I ask the Eds if there is any update on players the club might be seeking to move on (or loan) in January? We still have a large squad and was wondering - other than the obvious Sakho - if there is anybody that the club would like to see leave in January? I know that Klopp has spoken about his general desire to keep youngsters at the club to learn the 'Liverpool way' that he wishes us to play but was wondering if there are any exceptions that may gain (playing time) from being shipped out to teams who play a similar style to us?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing more than has previously explained at this time.}


6.) 21 Dec 2016 00:21:33
Thanks for the reply. With us seemingly mounting a reasonable challenge for a CL spot for next season I was wondering if the plans had been refined to accelerate the learning curve for the youngsters. I'll just have to be patient and wait for January I guess!

{Ed002's Note - No, plans would not have changed with respect to the youngsters.}


 

 

03 Dec 2016 08:35:48
Connor Randall possibly moving on loan in January. Huddersfield interested.

The natural

1.) 03 Dec 2016 09:31:08
There's been talk of Joe Gomez moving on loan their too! As you guys know, I commentate on Huddersfield Town home games and I provide updates on here about Danny Ward.

I've consistently said recently that Huddersfield Town's defence has left Ward exposed at times, and Connor Randall would be a major defensive improvement on Tommy Smith defensively if you ask me and Joe Gomez would provide more pace and energy than a number of their current centre back options to deal with counter attacks better than they have been doing!

I have my fingers crossed that one or both these rumours are true!


2.) 03 Dec 2016 09:49:08
I know what your saying Reid and make perfect sense mate, it'd be good for Gomez to get some regular first team footy and what not plus Huddersfield would be a good team for him to go to on loan but personally I'd prefer if we kept him and rotated him with Lovren, I believe he can do the job, gradually put him in even for the odd 30 mins or so to start with, this kids quality and I hope whatever happens he has a huge future with us.


3.) 03 Dec 2016 11:12:58
Think we should loan Klavan on loan and keep Gomez!


4.) 03 Dec 2016 13:09:02
Agreed harry.


5.) 03 Dec 2016 14:13:26
Gomez hasn't played in over a year, he's bound to need game time.


6.) 03 Dec 2016 15:14:04
Yeah then we should give him it.


7.) 03 Dec 2016 16:06:30
I think sending Gomez out on loan for the rest of the season (from January onwards) would be a good move, but it needs to be the right club.

No point throwing him into some club that's got no decent coaching or facilities, plus he's coming back from a massive injury we must remember that.


8.) 03 Dec 2016 17:40:42
Is there rules in place about one club taking players on loan from another club? Is the limit set at only two from on club?

{Ed002's Note - No limit in the Football League but only five can be named on the matchday team sheet and no more than foyr from any one club.}


9.) 03 Dec 2016 19:16:12
I think it best Gomez stays and builds up his fitness with the U23s. Randall is simply not good enough and now is what 4th choice RB. It makes no sense to loan out Klavan at all.


10.) 03 Dec 2016 19:48:31
If any body needs to b loaned out, it's Gomez because he's never played CB for us so he needs do that on a consistent basis to be judged on that first before we think of him rotating with anyone.


11.) 03 Dec 2016 20:30:49
Not sure why Klavan gets so much negativity on here, he hasn't set the world on fire but has been admirable when needed.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..


12.) 04 Dec 2016 09:32:52
I have a lot of time for players who are doing their best and Klavan, while not a world beater, is no lazy and/ or spoiled git like Benteke, Balotelli, Pennant, Diouf or Collymore.

He may not be good enough to be a starter but i like him anyway. Did we need him? Maybe not, but he is here and i'll support him as long as he is putting in the effort.

Hi eds not completely Liverpool related (yet anyway) but I have a question in relation to Chinese clubs buying players.
Why do they need to overspend on the transfer fee so much?

I understand the wages is in order to lure the player but I don't understand why they are paying huge massively inflated transfer fees e. g. Oscar for £52m. (Surely they would've got him for maybe £35m)
Today I see a club linked with Benteke for £40m.

The natural

{Ed001's Note - because the player gets 5% of the transfer fee, so it is another payment to them, in essence, to tempt them to go.}


1.) 02 Jan 2017 21:23:16
Cheers Ed's, how long can this ever upward curve last regarding player rewards, there has to be a long overdue realignment coming soon,2/ 3/ 400,000 a week! Just think about it for a minute, 1 weeks work is a pension pot most can only dream of.
1 year a lottery win.
I know the're the top Of The pile but the trickle down effect of high wages on the lower leagues is catastrophic.


2.) 03 Jan 2017 03:32:06
Their mantra is - If China players can't play in European league, then we will bring European league to China players.

They have the heaven's mandate to buy big into football industry not Just players but European clubs too.

Soon it will be as watchable as any European league as major stars are appearing there. Scale will tip when one of the big major star like messi Ronaldo Suarez neymar etc are lured to the league, all hell break loose.

{Ed001's Note - that's not true. The idea is to bring top players to China to play alongside Chinese players so they will improve.}


3.) 03 Jan 2017 10:25:35
Leek - that's what they said about the middle east money rich leagues. And the MLS. Where are the major, current starts that are flocking over there?


4.) 03 Jan 2017 15:27:52
Spot on Ed. Also I saw in a documentary about China`s new found "love" for football on youtube, that China`s main goal is to literally BUY the World Cup in the very near future.


 

 

30 Dec 2016 23:19:37
Hi eds, question if I may. With Lucas seemingly poised to join Inter on loan do you know if we have interest in taking any of their players either on loan or to buy?
Some very decent players they have.

The natural

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 31 Dec 2016 01:49:31
I would love Barnega who absolutely knackered us.


2.) 31 Dec 2016 08:41:45
Klopp would hate Banega's attitude.


3.) 31 Dec 2016 01:51:47
Cheers ed good to know.


4.) 31 Dec 2016 10:43:00
Brozovic or Perisic from lnter would be a great coup.


 

 

27 Dec 2016 11:07:53
I don't understand the benefit to Liverpool of letting Lucas move to Inter on loan for 6 months, when it's the last 6 months of his contract.
What's in it for Liverpool? His wages off the books? It's Lucas! I'd much rather pay his wages which are not astronomical and have him in the squad. Model professional with still a lot to offer not mentioning experience.
This deal makes no sense.

The natural

1.) 27 Dec 2016 12:10:11
His contract expires in 2018 mate.


2.) 27 Dec 2016 14:24:28
If Lucas wishes to go, he will go. I don't think Klopp would stop him if he said he wants to go. Because he has been a model professional during his time here, he deserves to decide his own future, if he does not see his future here.

This isn't a prison, and the players are human too.


3.) 27 Dec 2016 14:46:48
Lucas should be allowed to do whatever he wants and thinks is best for him and his family, period. He has more than earned that right, don`t you think?


4.) 27 Dec 2016 19:31:38
Yup good shoult hamiltonred. Lucas has definitely earned the privilege to have a say in these discussions.


 

 

14 Dec 2016 10:14:39
Hi eds, you mentioned before that you don't think Gueye is good enough on the ball for our system but I must say in the matches I've watched him and in particular against Arsenal he looked very good indeed. He has been a rock in midfield for Everton and allows freedom to the other players.
If he continues his current form I would like to think we would make an audacious swoop at the end of the season perhaps.

The natural

1.) 14 Dec 2016 14:26:30
He was outstanding last night in my opinion.


2.) 14 Dec 2016 14:40:10
I think Welsh Dave promised me he would sell his house if anyone on the site agree with me over Gueye. There you go mate 2 people likes the player 😎.


3.) 14 Dec 2016 14:47:50
The names keep coming:

Yann M'Villa, Shane Long, Saido Berahino and now Gueye.

Always entertaining on this site 😂.


4.) 14 Dec 2016 17:00:41
Gueye is a decent player but not good enough for us. We have too much of the ball we need someone much better on the ball than him in that position. He's much better being with a smaller mid table team, like he is now ;)


5.) 14 Dec 2016 18:13:53
Gueye is not good enough for the system we play, which requires a LOT more than just running around and making tackles, all that look good on MOTD highlights. Playing in our system requires a lot more than many people think and he does not fit the bill.


6.) 14 Dec 2016 18:31:45
Hamilton
A big LOL on that point. Gueye is a good player and very young who will only improve his game. His tackling and interception at his age is brilliant compared to others. Stop picking Ed's points and try watching the player at least once. I would have Gueye over Wijnaldum any day of the week. lol the reality is we have no players who could tackle. Stop being a Gardiola.


7.) 14 Dec 2016 19:03:46
Sigh, no Harry, that's not what I said.


8.) 14 Dec 2016 11:24:35
Said this other day and as usual received wholesale abuse from people. Ed025 rates him very high. I have been very much impressed by him.

{Ed025's Note - your right harry, take no notice of the likes of pip and hamilton they are very bitter people who dont have a scooby at times, they think jordan henderson is a footballer mate and were probably calling joe allen the welsh xavi...let me tell you this guy is the business and if you had him he would win you the title hes that good, i just know he would not dowgrade to liverpool though..


 

 

21 Sep 2016 22:56:13
Banter please - Player of the season so far?

For me, without question has been Mané. Gives us such a different dimension that we've lacked for a long time. He creates so much space for all our other good players eg firmino Cautinho Sturridge that they too are looking even better.

If he stays fit for the season - we get top 4 and possibly challenge for title. (damn I've only gone and said it)

The natural

1.) 21 Sep 2016 23:55:59
Firmino

Has looked quality every time I've seen him. Great movement, touch, goals and creates chances, fingers crossed this can be a big season for him.

Mane and hendo are very close though!


2.) 22 Sep 2016 00:04:35
It's very early but nonetheless Matip has really impressed me.


3.) 22 Sep 2016 00:08:27
I thought Mane has been a bit too quiet past couple of games after a phenomenal start. Hendo, Matip and Firmino have hardly put a foot wrong so far. Its a bit tough calling our best player after six games but so far Matip seems our most consistant.


4.) 22 Sep 2016 00:56:37
He's made the biggest difference to the teams play vs. last season because he added something we desperately needed, but player of the season for me so far is Firmino.


5.) 22 Sep 2016 01:16:13
Hmmm. maybe firmino, he always seems to be the catalyst to create turnovers and goals.


6.) 22 Sep 2016 01:39:41
Mane has looked good, but for me, hard to go past Firmino, with Llalana and Mane not far behind. Matip has also looked the business when played. In fact, the only player to have underwhelmed slightly has been Winaldum, but it's early days. Sturridge needs a run of games to show he's our best striker, but Klopp's formations have by and large worked so far, so it's a tough job getting a start for Sturridge, Origi and now Ings.


7.) 22 Sep 2016 01:53:46
Milner. Played at LB and whilst unspectacular, has done a decent job and looks better than Moreno. Massive credit to him. He has bailed us out from having to rely on Moreno.


8.) 22 Sep 2016 02:46:39
Firmino.


9.) 22 Sep 2016 04:07:23
There have been strong performances from Firmino, Matip, Mane and Henderson IMO. Lovren, Milner, Coutinho and Lallana have done pretty well too.


10.) 22 Sep 2016 04:33:23
Mane will influence and will have a decent season. But Firmino hands down. He is so important to our team.


11.) 22 Sep 2016 09:58:43
So many have upped their games.
Hard to pick just one.
Our run of form seems to be due to a much better team effort rather than one or 2 players taking us forward.


12.) 22 Sep 2016 10:27:51
Hendo is impressing me a great deal. He is the next big thing for us.

Firminio is incredible and the best we've had since suarez in my opinion.

Mane I feel has adapted to our squad perfectly he is incredible and I look forward to seeing him play every time he plays.

During the transfer window we signed quite a few so I was a little worried about them gelling but that's obviously not been a problem.

Very happy about how things are, onwards and upwards. The nice thing about all of this is the squad are only going to improve. I don't want to jinx anything so not saying what I was going to but yeah, top 4 I'll be happy :)

Firminio for me overall

YNWA.


13.) 22 Sep 2016 15:23:05
That's the thing. Really difficult to pick out one clear standout so far. So many players have been consistently good or better when played. Tells you a lot about the team we have this season and the way we're playing. Very interesting times ahead. My one fear is injuries, even though we have a much better bench than in earlier years.


14.) 23 Sep 2016 00:22:15
hendo is lfc captain. He's already a big thing foru S. We just need for him to get to the next level.


15.) 22 Sep 2016 23:17:45
We've played 5 games fellas?

Decent point Seano. Bit of a unique one at that. On first thought, no he should of course train with "the kids". But then, why should he? There's been so many cases of players doing a "Cherno Samba" and bossing it at under age as they're essentially men playing against boys. Then when they step up to play against men they're bang average.

For me Emre Can has not progressed at all in the last couple of years. In fact, he's gone backwards. He slows the game down so much and is constantly off the pace.
Potentially great, if he had a football brain. Which he doesn't.
Move him on.

Intelligent reading of the game. You don't need physical pace or even strength if you're two steps ahead of everyone.
It's getting more and more rare with clubs preferring big lumps of lads than the intellegent player.
