Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?


1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32
Leftbackinthechangies?


4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.


5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.


6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.

Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.


2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.


3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market


4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.


5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got


6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.


7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke


8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.


9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.


10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!


11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}


 

 

14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}


1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}


2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!


3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.


4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.


5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}


6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.


7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.


8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

With all this talk of a potential new keeper, I genuinely hope that we take a look at Leno from Leverkusen. Admittedly I haven't seen much of him but he seems to have a good rep and is highly thought of. Anyone got a better idea of what he's like?

{Ed002's Note - Leno is heading elsewhere.}


1.) 06 Jun 2018 18:49:11
Oh well. Cheers for the heads up Ed002.


2.) 06 Jun 2018 20:36:17
Rubbish in the air, unsuitable to the premier league 🤝.


 

 

27 May 2018 06:40:45
After a kip and getting over the initial disappointment, I just want to say how proud I am of our team. We'v played some fantastic football this year, good enough for us to come into the final with some genuine belief when, much like in 2005, none of us would have predicted it. Considering the squad depth we currently have, I think the lads have done themselves and the shirt proud. We can build from this and come back even stronger next year with the right acquisitions and I genuinely believe we will be back here again sooner than many might think.


 

 

10 May 2018 06:54:46
See some reports and though I don't believe them for a second. I'd be interested to hear people thoughts on the Ayew brothers at Swansea, and whether they could do a job for us. Neither are brilliant, but Jordan is very pacy and could offer cover for Mane, Salah and even up top. Andre also can cover all foward positions and even in the middle foward positions, is strong on the ball and a bit more creative. Both work very hard, would likely be happy to be part of the squad/ rotation system, seem better than cover we have, and Andre especially is a big LFC fan.

Maybe i'll get shot down, but I think it would be a shrewd bit of business to get both for say 10-20mil?

{Ed001's Note - I do not think they are good enough for a top half team in the Premier League, let alone one that wants to challenge for titles. They tick one box, of hard work, but everything else leaves a lot to be desired.}


1.) 10 May 2018 07:32:23
Fair enough ed, I’m just searching for options as im a little concerned about our depth and cover options even with the names being mentioned to come in, especially in terms of cover for the front 3.

{Ed001's Note - I am more worried about the lack of midfield options personally.}


2.) 10 May 2018 08:00:53
People need to stop with this Ayew brothers, Craig Dawson and Alfie Masson crap. They are light years from the ability we need to push us over the line of title contenders.


3.) 10 May 2018 08:18:14
I like Andre, is a very hardworking player with mane like techniques (though slightly at lower level) and is also a liverpool fan. I believe he could do well on our bench for the front three most especially in bobby's absence. You will hardly get a top class player willing to sit on the bench and see out games or waiting for an injury to get a game.
But that being said i hope harry wilson works his ass off in preseason to be the front three substitute. There is something special in that kid. He looks like these kids who find themselves right even when they intend do wrong (such people are God given and you just don't let go of them) .


4.) 10 May 2018 08:26:58
I personally think Sturridge will still be here, next season. Who will pay the asking price and match his wage demands?

Why would Sturridge take a wage cut? The way his career is going, he will be retired in a few years, so if I were him, I'd maximise my earnings whilst I still could, even if that meant being a sub for the last year of my contract at Liverpool.

He is a really good guy to have around the training ground (read what Curtis Jones said about him recently) so i doubt we'd bully him out, and I just can't see us finding a willing buyer. If he left I would think it'll be a last minute loan deal when someone starts to panic. I think It's more likely he'll go out on loan again in January though.

I'm not in the know at all, this is all just my opinion. After this West Brom experiment, who here can honestly say that they would gamble £20-25m and £100k a week on Sturridge? Imagine getting lumbered with that wage for 3-5 years and then getting relegated? The lower clubs should learn from Leeds, Portsmouth and Sunderlandand who soent beyond their means in wages and look like they'll never recover. No secure Premier league side (City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Everton or Leicester) will want him because they all have the spending power to do better nowadays.

I just hope that if I am right, Sturridge performs a minor miracle and sorts his injuries out. It is easy to forget that this is a guy who can score 25 goals a seasons. In 13/ 14 he was undeniably in the top 10 strikers in world football. It saddens me that I am now relieved he has just a year left on his contract, because I feel like we have missed out on something that could've been truly special.


5.) 10 May 2018 08:37:17
Sturridge should look to move to France or Holland. A league where the league isn't too physical.
That's my opinion anyway.
Draxler is the player I would sign. You just can't predict his behavior/ attitude. But he'll be a good option for either a midfield role or an attacking role.


6.) 10 May 2018 09:22:44
MK, sorry to burst your bubble BUT Studge won't be here and in fact, his being here is why Origi left (which I did not like cos we could have used him this season) . His injuries have destroyed him and any sports scientist will tell you that you don't sort out your injuries the older you get. It actually gets worse cos it takes much longer to recover and for a relentlessly injury-prone player like Studge, it takes way longer. I personally, want him gone so we can move on with our lives and get someone in here who can do a job and accept his role w/ o worrying about him pulling a hamstring getting out of bed.

As for Ayew or any of them, They are not good enough even as back ups, IMO. Might as well give Ojo and Wilson the game time instead of wasting wages and squad space on two average duds.


7.) 10 May 2018 09:30:53
I know Sevilla were interested last summer realtofel, but I'm just thinking about it from the perspective that if it was my club, or even my money, I would not be interested at all. He's not had a good season for 4 years now. How long can you live off of the reputation of 1 and half great seasons at Liverpool?

I hope he does get a good move abroad because I agree that it would suit him better. I just can't see who will gamble on him now. His injury saga has gotten to the point it is now ridiculous. 2 goals this season. 3 goals the season before. 8 goals two seasons ago. And 4 goals three seasons ago. You have to go back 4 seasons for the last time he hit double figures in the league, with 21 league goals in that title challenge.

31 league goals in his first 18 months, followed by 17 league goals in his next 48 months. That is a decline of epic proportions. Why would anyone want a striker who averages about 4 goals a season? On his wages, that is about £1.5m per goal!

Hope you are right buddy and there is some interest, but I am struggling to see where it comes from after another bad year; the worst yet.


8.) 10 May 2018 09:51:22
I agree with MK. I can't see any team coming in for him, why would they? what does he offer? I think he'll see out his contract with us too.

I love Sturridge but injuries have buggered him unfortunately. By all means if a team is stupid enough to come in for him we should snap their hands off but right now it's hard to imagine a team doing so.


9.) 10 May 2018 09:52:41
Brover, what you say about injuries kind of supports my point though, doesn't it?

He has a year left on his contract so we are stuck with him unless someone else is prepared to take a huge gamble (which I can't see happening for all the reasons you explained) or unless Sturridge is prepared to take a wage cut and Liverpool reduce the asking price (again, not likely to happen! )

I'm not saying he should stay or that I want him too. I'm just pointing out the fact that it is unlikely anybody will gamble on him again. Your post doesn't exactly sell him to other clubs, nor does it counter my point that nobody will want him.

The only scenario I can see him leaving in the summer is if he goes out on loan and Liverpool pay a significant chunk of his wages. I know Pardew agreed to pay a loan fee and his salary, but the way it turned out at West Brom will just be another black mark on Sturridges CV. He's cost the Baggies a fortune and given them nothing in return, other than keeping their medical staff busy.

Can anybody here come up with any reasons why someone might be prepared to invest in him? 🤔.


10.) 10 May 2018 13:53:35
MK, I'm not disputing your opinion that it would be difficult for teams to sign him. Truthfully speaking, as a club owner, I would probably not sign him on a free transfer.
I'm looking at it from Sturridge's PoV. If he "humbles" himself and realises that the French/ Dutch league will suit him cos of the tempo/ lack of physicality, he might get a good move. But he would probably want one of the top leagues and I don't know if that will help him.


11.) 10 May 2018 14:23:16
Maybe a newly promoted team might take a punt on him? Wages are the hurdle though and I see no reason why he would leave and take a pay cut.


12.) 10 May 2018 14:51:54
We'll probably be able to sell him for spare parts to any club with a rusty old striker lying around that needs fixing up. Surely there must be some bit of him that hasn't been injured? Thumbs maybe?


13.) 10 May 2018 16:30:23
I can't think of any reasons why anyone would invest in him at the price MK - I do expect both ourselves and Sturridge to significantly lower the demands though which will likely pique a few teams curiosity.


14.) 10 May 2018 19:36:17
At least The Ayews could have a good song.

Oooooooooooh Ayew ooh ooh Ayew

The simple ones are always the best.

Hey Ed002,

I was reading through the posts on the whole LVG, Allegri topics on the MU page and it got me thinking, do you know if anything similar that's happened with LFC as a result of fan group pressure that isn't common knowledge?

I understand you may not wish to answer this given the stupid responses you had on that thread, however if Ed002 does post and answer this with something we won't be proud of can I suggest the LFC fans on this thread show some class, not copy the UTD page posters, and not resort to mud slinging at the eds for answering a genuine question.

As always thanks for your time eds.

{Ed002's Note - No, the Liverpool fans have proven difficult in the past as you should know, but there is nothing going on right now but there is a sustained bitching about the owners. I don't see it as a problem at this time.}


1.) 20 Apr 2018 13:35:55
I don't like moaning about the club, whatever the state of things. I'd rather be miffed than make a fuss - I thought that's what British people did! You alluded to fans ruining the plans of the MU owners and thereby putting the club back a few steps. Are you of the opinion then that fans, in general, should just keep quiet and let the club do its thing? Obviously there are situations at certain clubs where the fans are being/ have been taken for a ride. It seems there is a fine line between putting up with disgruntlement and taking action over club self destruction. Especially when the moaning is over issues of entitlement.

Hi Ed001. Your earlier response ‘Butland and option of keeping faith with Karius’ suggests Butland would be no.2? Do you think Karius would be preferred over Butland? Would you prefer that?

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't work like that, just like signing Fabinho doesn't suddenly mean Henderson is going to sit on the sidelines all season. It would be up to both keepers to prove themselves and then a choice would be made. Karius would start with the advantage but it would not mean Butland is number 2.}

Regardless if any wife player coming in, if Fekir does come it would signal to me Klopp switching to a very attacking 4231 starting formation next year, with Fekir behind Bobby. This would leave Fabinho, Hendo, Wiji, Milner, Ox, Lallana and Keita vying for the remaining midfield positions, although Ox and Lallana could be cover/ rotation for Fekir I suppose. All opinion and guess work of course, but if true I would imagine at least 2 will leave.

I think the VAR system how it has been working this World Cup is nearly perfect. The one thing that could be added is as mentioned above a challenge system. One challenger per game, from the captain direct to the ref. However this can only work if refs are stronger and book players when they are encouraging refs to review. That ref in the England game yesterday was very weak.

{Ed001's Note - and needs to be speeded up.}

Karius for me. Not seen anything to suggest the Lazio lad is any better than Karius. Unless we are going to replace Loris with genuine top class what’s the point of paying big money someone of similar ability and potential?

Of our current established players that are not in the first team every week, I would most like to see Lallana and Origi staying as cover and rotation. I think they both have the ability to contribute over a season, so long as Lallana plays centrally and not as cover for out wide. Everyone knows he’s not effective out there.

Hey Baytay. Eds will likely know more, but Fekir is an attacking player, has played centrally both as an advanced midfielder and a ‘false 9’ type player. Has quick feet, a few tricks and his main asset seems to be close ball control. Keita is a very energetic central midfielder, very quick, strong in the tackle and has one hell of a shot on him. His major asset seems to be getting the ball foward quickly and keeping up with the play, receiving the ball back from foward players and driving foward at pace. Seems to be a very good all round midfielder that will certainly add creativity to the team. A few attitude issues there though it seems. Fabinho is a more defensive able midfielder that has and can still play at full back. Has good positioning, tackling ability and can pick a few decent passes. He does drive foward effectively on occasion but don’t expect it too often. This is all just my opinion by the way based on what I’ve seen in European games. I’m sure others have seen them than me.

{Ed025's Note - very good assessment that westwood..well done mate..
