Good morning Eds. I recall last year there were rumors that Liverpool were interested in Karim Demirbay. I used the search engine and noticed he hasn't been mentioned since the fall. I was just curious to know if there really was any interest and, if so, if that interest continues.

dbav

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been added in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.}

Thank you Ed. It's very much appreciated.

Just a question for any of the Ed's that are available. Over the last few seasons, there have been some former Championship players that have become impact players for Premier League teams.

Are there any current Championship players you think we should keep an eye on, and are there any that Liverpool may be interested in? I don't get to see Championship matches where I am, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

dbav

{Ed002's Note - Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB), but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 19:42:02
Ed2 - you are the wind beneath our wings sir! 😊
Thanks so much for all your incredible contribution!

{Ed002's Note - I guessed it would be "wind" based.}


2.) 27 Feb 2019 19:46:02
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 27 Feb 2019 21:00:48
Thank you for the info as ever Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}


4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:27:34
Ed2! good to see you around, thanks for the info, hows things?

{Ed002's Note - I am kicking my heels before leaving real early on Friday. Great result tonight and boosting the goals.}


5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:41:40
Who do you support ed 02? Just as a matter of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I have a soft spot for a few sides, Greenock Morton, Chelsea, and obviously Marseille. When I was a beautiful, pretty child with the most amazing hair there were no teams nearby. When i moved to England in 1981 my wife and I moved to Chelsea, close to the ground.}


6.) 27 Feb 2019 23:06:21
Hahaha ok thanx I don't know why but I thought u supported man United for some reason, balotelli is scoring still, and great result for Chelsea, greenock Morton I am not up on, cheers .


7.) 27 Feb 2019 23:49:35
Are you mates with jason manning? 😆. Admit you have a soft spot for us as well ed, the best fans in the land.


 

 

24 May 2018 15:47:22
Good Morning Eds. I see ESPN and a few others are reporting Liverpool interest in Christopher Nkunku. I checked the search engine and haven't seen his name mentioned in quite some time, so I thought I would ask if there was any actual interest. Thanks.

dbav

{Ed002's Note - i don’t know but Fiorentina had discussions with him and stepped back because of demands for game time.}


1.) 24 May 2018 16:09:01
Thanks Ed002. It is greatly appreciated.

Question for the Eds if you are about and willing. I know that a few of you are close to your respective teams, or that you have insight into the football/ transfer business.

If you're able to share, I'm curious to know how you got into those positions. I don't mean for this to be a revelation of sources or anything like that, but what events in your lives or career choices have put you each in the position to get this kind of information.

If that's off limits, I certainly understand. Thanks.

dbav

{Ed001's Note - I really don't know how to answer this question. I grew up around a lot of the right people really. Family friends were involved in the game, I guess. I have never really thought about it. Silly things helped me, like travelling a fair bit with my uncle in the early days of his career as a stand up comedian, you would get to know the staff and owners of all the clubs and hotels etc that he worked. Then you go on a night out and, as I am a friendly sort of person, they would remember me and I would be in the VIP section. As I don't drink I would be the one who would end up looking after everyone and so people remember that you sorted things when things were going off.

Really it is like a giant snowball, you know one person who introduces to another and so on.}


1.) 17 Sep 2019 19:10:50
Thanks Ed. I was just curious and really appreciate the response.

{Ed001's Note - no worries, it is difficult to answer really, I have never really known anything different.}


 

 

14 Sep 2019 19:24:20
Really impressed by the Norwich back line today. The fullbacks in particular.

dbav

 

 

02 Aug 2019 15:21:41
For Ed25.

I think that Kean is a big time pickup for you guys if it gets finalized. I think he's a heck of a pmayer with a very bright future.

dbav

{Ed025's Note - if we get it over the line dbav it will be a great coup for the club and marcel brands in particular, i though he might go to a CL club myself but will be more than happy to see him in royal blue mate..


1.) 02 Aug 2019 15:58:18
Any idea on why he was available. With that talent I'd have figured Juve would want to hold on to him. Regardless. Big coup, and a reasonable price.

{Ed025's Note - something went on at juve that im afraid im not privvy to dbay and thats why they wanted the buy back clause, ED002 knows i think mate but im just happy we are at the table..


2.) 02 Aug 2019 19:19:42
Icardi could be on his way there and they still have Mandzukic in the squad so it will be better if he moved to get games.


3.) 02 Aug 2019 19:20:36
I'd expect juve's insistence on a buy back clause probably put a few teams off, as it could effectively just be a loan, so difficult to count on him long term. Great signing for Everton though, could be just what they need right now.


4.) 02 Aug 2019 17:37:13
Ed do you not see it as a lukaku type deal? Couple seasons then move on for twice the fee? Maybe that deal has been mentioned to Kean.

{Ed025's Note - it could well be firmane, but its win win for us mate..


5.) 02 Aug 2019 18:33:53
Understood Ed. Thanks and congrats.

{Ed025's Note - cheers mate..


6.) 02 Aug 2019 19:19:31
I can only assume that it has something to do with Ronaldo. I'm not just putting it out there because of any dislike for the guy, but surely if you have a good up and coming promising player, Ronaldo is the exact person that you'd want him to learn from. Not just in terms of play and skills, but professionalism, dedication to training and diet also.

That would also make the buy back clause making more sense, so that they can get him back when Ronaldo retires.

{Ed025's Note - we have actually agreed a deal without a buy-back clause epic, but they do have first refusal if we do sell mate..


7.) 02 Aug 2019 20:45:38
If Everton get a good right-forward player, then they will probably battle Man-Utd/ Arsenal for the 6th spot.
Kean is a really good buy - IMO anyway. I saw a few of his games for Juventus last season. I think he gets at least 15 league goals for Everton.

{Ed025's Note - thats the plan realtofel....but you never know mate we could exceed that with a bit of luck...then again it could also go tits up.. :)


8.) 02 Aug 2019 22:21:02
New obafemi martins 🤣🤣😅.


9.) 02 Aug 2019 23:36:18
But you're basically developing him for Juventus. There is a buy back clause.


10.) 03 Aug 2019 02:01:45
I'm sure there were always issue between him and juve for a few years even back in his mid teens. His father making big demands or false promises from juve or something along them lines. I'm unsure on the details but I always got the impression of strained relations.


 

 

24 Jul 2019 00:41:36
I was really excited about the form of Joe Gomez just before he was lost for the season. I'm hoping he can reach that level again and claim that spot to start the season. His speed and strength are a great combination and I think he compliments VVD very well. They have the potential to be one of the best pairings in the world in my opinion.

dbav

1.) 24 Jul 2019 09:46:15
He has been one of the better performers pre season. he's definitely no full back though, I never want to see him there again.


2.) 24 Jul 2019 10:05:24
Couldn't agree more Beef. Wasted at fullback he's a CB and that's it.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 10:54:34
Definitely, Gomez could go right to the very top, it's up to him really. Hopefully he lives right and takes a leaf out of milners book.


4.) 24 Jul 2019 10:49:35
Gomez has the speed and athleticism to cover full back well, more so than Milner, Henderson or (perish the thought) Fabinho?
I hope he stays fit and regains the CB role though, his partnership with Van Dijk is our top pairing there imo.


5.) 24 Jul 2019 15:41:26
I hope Gomez does get his spot back, but he has to fight for it. Matip was playing really well at the end of the season. He did suprise me but I believe he deserves his place in the team.


6.) 25 Jul 2019 06:17:22
Yeah, i agree juicer. He's our best CB after vvd but he can play RB, not as well as trent offensively but probably better defensively, so there is no need to completely write him off as a potential RB

Totally agree that vvd gomez partnership was very impressive. I don't think we conceded more than 1 in our first handfull of games. didn't concede at all for our first 3/ 4? Yeah i hope its joe and virgil.


 

 

20 Jul 2019 02:58:00
Question for the Eds if you're able. The preseason gives many fans a chance to see the youngsters play. There has been some talk that a few may have a future with the club (Brewster, maybe Lewis as LB cover) .

I know it's impossible to accurately predict how careers will progress, but I'm curious to know if there are any youngsters you feel confident will have some place with the first team in the future?

Thanks.

dbav

{Ed001's Note - not really any of them that stand out.}


1.) 20 Jul 2019 03:58:53
I think that Brewster stands out and will play a role this season.


2.) 20 Jul 2019 05:52:52
I think Brewster has something about him and that knack of being in the right place, at the right time, to bang in goals is something that will serve him well, particularly as an impact sub. He is the only one who really looks capable of functioning within some context of the first team - the others simply don't seem good enough.


3.) 20 Jul 2019 05:57:50
You can't count him, he is already a first teamer.


4.) 20 Jul 2019 07:14:55
Brewster not you cup of tea ed1.

{Ed001's Note - what? Why on earth would you say that? The lad is a first teamer, I am not going to count him I just said that.}


5.) 20 Jul 2019 07:37:21
I think it highlights that whilst we have average back up, we won’t be able to mount a serious challenge for the domestic cups again this season.


6.) 20 Jul 2019 10:29:18
Drogie, let's wait and see what happen asnd how things develop before drawing hasty conclusions during preseason. As for Brewster, it's still preseason hence, I have no opinion on him BUT I will say that the pen. he scored vs BVB was top drawer. That is how veteran pen. takers take their penalties. Bravo to him on that front, at least.


7.) 20 Jul 2019 10:43:14
The idea that you need two world class players is a bit false in my view. Look at when United dominated with Ferguson, they didn’t have two world class players for each position, just decent capable replacements. That’s all. Looking at our squad it’s pretty good and in the best shape it’s been in for a long time.

Keepers
Alisson
Mignolet
Kelleher

Full backs
Alexander-Arnold
Robertson
Lewis
Clyne

Centre backs
VVD
Matip
Gomez
Lovren

Midfield
Henderson
Fab
Wijnaldum
Ox
Milner
Lallana

Forwards
Firmino
Origi
Brewster
Salah
Mane
Shaqiri
Wilson
Kent

And amongst that you have players like Milner and Fab who can cover more than one position.


8.) 20 Jul 2019 11:50:46
Redwolf - Nothing hasty in my thoughts, Klopp has hinted there will be no major signings so it’ll be pretty much the same squad as last season. We were dumped out of the FA and league cup due to the lack of quality as back up.


9.) 20 Jul 2019 10:16:49
Wakey wakey Eds1 it was a joke Brew . cup of tea.


10.) 20 Jul 2019 11:02:58
ed001 what have you thought about Yasser Larouci? .
Looks like he has not done to bad for me, just watched the first half against Dortmund and looked good definitely could do the job Alberto Moreno did for us over the last few years.

{Ed001's Note - I don't watch friendlies so I have none.}


11.) 20 Jul 2019 12:34:34
The team is great, but I'd over the moon with a back up Forward to push the front 3 and fill in when they're out. I can't see Divok being the guy, hope I'm wrong.


12.) 20 Jul 2019 12:56:43
Missed naby out there aswell. Great squad that.


13.) 20 Jul 2019 12:41:19
Drogie, I agree with you, squad isn't deep enough.


14.) 20 Jul 2019 12:43:45
Lot depend on the draw Drogie, helps if you can stay away from teams like Chelsea and Wolves in the 1st round.


15.) 20 Jul 2019 17:49:32
It’s not a criticism or a moan, it’s the hard truth. We have a fantastic first 11, best in years but unfortunately we are in competition with a brilliant City team with quality in depth.

What I will say though is that Klopp inherited a very average squad and has done well in the transfer market, where as Pep inherited a very good team and has kicked on form there.


16.) 20 Jul 2019 22:54:42
Drogie, how do you know we won't do well in the Cups next season from where you are sitting? You have no proof of that. By the way, we got knocked out by Chelsea in the EFL in a game we dominated and had Studge had his shooting boots on, he could have had a hatrick.

As per Wolves in the FA Cup, we had selection issues and injuries (VVD pulled out, Hendo pulled out in the warmup and Lovs pulled up after 2 minutes) . The front three also needed a rest cos they had played all the games in the whole of Dec. If that is what you are using to determine how well we will do then your parameters are deeply flawed. Like I said, let's see what happens next season.

Unless the team intends to use him as a winger, he'd be joining a midfield that already includes Ox, Keita, Fabinho, Hendo, Wini, and Milner. That doesn't include Lallana who I don't expect to play. I don't see it happening unless one of those players leave.

Could it happen? Sure, but I would expect a corresponding move as well.

Arsenal's front 3 will be really good. They've added some good young talent. If Luiz and Rugani both get across the line, they will be better. I think they will be in the hunt for top 4 this year and challenging even higher next season or the season after that. It does remind me of how the current Liverpool team was built, adding the pieces you want.

I really like what Emery is doing on paper. We'll see if he gets the results.
