Heard mahrez is being lined up to replace couts 🤔🤔surely not as he plays on the right wing doesn't he eds. have anyone heard anything on this and can mahrez play more central if needed 👍.


{Ed001's Note - the only club I know of in for him is still Roma, who won't match the asking price. Arsenal are the likeliest team from the Prem to try and sign him, as Wenger does like him.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 12:18:30
Thanks for the reply bud. he is a cracking player just couldn't see where he'd fit in in our line up👍👍.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 13:07:02
Is there any truth in luan from gremio.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 13:15:48
We have firmino

Go and get a striker.

Hendo can
Salah firmino mane
Xxx xxx.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 14:12:51
We obviously have bigger probs at back we need too pull out all the stops too get vvd or someone who is dominant in the air and a leader_organiser.

5.) 18 Aug 2017 14:14:42
I liked the idea of luan cos he is a number 10 and striker apparently.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 15:04:57
We need a no.9 not another Bobby.

7.) 18 Aug 2017 15:13:05
True and also the south american prob of becomin world class then wanting madrid or barca.



29 Apr 2017 17:54:14
Do any of the eds know if there's still any interest in the full back Taylor from Leeds heard he's decent 👍.


{Ed001's Note - I believe our interest moved on, though now they are not in the promotion play offs he could well become an option.}

1.) 29 Apr 2017 18:59:53
Thanks pal do you rate the boy?

{Ed001's Note - not really, he is ok, but nothing special. He is half the player of Sessegnon.}

2.) 29 Apr 2017 19:53:56
He'd be huge drop off in quality compared to sessegnon.

3.) 30 Apr 2017 02:11:05
Would he be an upgrade on Milner tho!?

{Ed001's Note - certainly not immmediately, it would be buying potential.}



28 Apr 2017 13:39:22
Question for ed02 . how do you rate ox chamberlain? And are we interested in him? Only reason I'm asking is he's seems heavily linked with us in the press and he's odds on in the bookies as well. I can't make my mind up on him if I'm honest sometimes he looks decent then other times looks like there's not much end product. cheers in advance if you reply 👍.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool for Oxlade-Chamberlain and it makes little sense as his primary position is similar to Mane. If Klopp sees him playing behind Mane in midfield then it would be that right sided role Can and Wijnaldum have been playing in recently. Last summer the likes of West Ham and Leicester showed some interest. I would be surprised if he were to move but perhaps Klopp sees something in him - his haircut is rather silly but not really up to Liverpool standards. And if I were a Liverpool fan I would be a little disappointed if he were signed.}

1.) 28 Apr 2017 14:55:14
we can and should be looking for better than this.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 15:26:11
Cheers ed. appreciated 👍 Hope we set our standards better than ox. oh and can't believe lovren got a bumper new contract. klopp must think he's up to the task in our back 4 I sadly think not😬 2 good games then 1 howler evertime really not good enough.

3.) 29 Apr 2017 03:43:22
I'd be happy with ox. He is still very young and has lots of experience at champions league and international level. Could have similar impact to what Sturridge had when he signed from Chelskie at a simailar age.



21 Apr 2017 09:14:25
Ed02 if you're about . is lacazette or Marco rues a possible option for us? I've listened to the sharkpod and it's a good listen and you're knowledge is much appreciated. I'm not just plucking names out of the air here as we've been on and off for a while been linked with these in the press. I think up top of the field we look great better than most but we need strength in our squad if we do manage champs league and want to try and win domestic league next season? If we got no chance of these 2 do you have a clue where these might end up?


{Ed002's Note - Possibly and probably not is the answer.

Interest in Lyon's Alexander Lacazette from Newcastle and Inter has long gone. Additionally, whilst Guy Hillion has continued to extol his virtues but there is no support whatesoever from the folks in London for a bid at this time - so prior interest of Chelsea has gone. Barcelona, Atletico, Juventus and Spurs had him watched late last season - but Barcelona had another solution in mind for what they want and will not be following up. Juventus took it no further and moved to hold talks about another player and Spurs purchased Janssen but may still want to add a striker in the summer - but Lacazette may become an option again so I would not totally discount Spurs nor Juve.

West Ham enquired after Lacazette's availability previously and submitted two bids that were rejected - but wages and the lack of desire from the player to move to a club like WHU means that option has probably gone - plus Lacazette will want Champions League football.

Dortmund are continuing to hedge their bets by looking for a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replacement and have watched Lacazette on a couple of occasions.

Arsenal decided that the asking price was too high in the summer and opted, for reasons beyond me, for Lucas Perez. I suspect that they might return in the coming summer when they will be in the market for a striker and Lacazette might well be a good option for them - much will however depend on who the manager is.

He is not first or second choice for PSG but they could potentially turn to him if they fail to bring anyone else in - I think a less likely option.

I am not aware of Liverpool showing any interest in the player recently, but (a) if they look to move Sturridge on (which I think they will), (b) if Liverpool qualify for the Champions League, and (c) if Liverpool have the stomach to pay what will likely be €60M for the player, then Lacazette might well be an option.

Lacazette is a player that Mourinho has looked at from his time at Chelsea, but any interest will depend on what happens with Ibrahimovich. Right now Manchester United have shown no interest.

Lyon are very difficult to negotiate with and they may well see an Gallic shrug in response to any initial bids. Lacazette wants English money and Champions League or Juventus. Lyon will look for at least €10M more for a sale to an English side as they know what they can expect from elsewhere. Two French players who have played in England have been providing advice to Lacazette that it is not essential to move to England immediately, but I suspect he has other ideas now and would welcome a move.

Dortmund would be open to selling Marco Reus this summer as a means of generating funds for what may need to be a major rebuild of the side.Arsenal could be interested as a possible replacement for Sanchez if he was available at a reasonable fee and critically can prove his fitness - which in itself is a major issue (and an on going issue). Bayern is no longer pushing for him and I think are unlikely to look to him again even though there are issues with both of the long-term replacements for Ribery and Robben and Dortmund are reluctant to lose any more players to thems. Real Madrid and Barcelona interest has moved on for now. The interest shown briefly by PSG has gone and it would depend what happens from a head coach stand point whether or not that returns. As with everything there are issues, the one Chelsea identified that made them step back from their interest, whatever the asking price ends up being, and his ability to prove and sustain fitness.}

1.) 21 Apr 2017 09:47:06
Hey ed! Could you share some more info about who Bayern's long-term replacements for R&R are? I ask on this page because it might have an impact on Brandt, who is one of our confirmed targets.

{Ed002's Note - Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa.}

2.) 21 Apr 2017 10:09:53
Wow. Now that's what you call a detailed response. 😋.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 10:48:56
Cracking response ed👍 Didn't expect anything else cheers bud much appreciated. I'll take you're response as their nailed on for us then 😂😉.

4.) 21 Apr 2017 11:43:52
Brilliant response Ed, thanks for the reply

Think Lacazette would be a good option if Sturridge were to leave and complementary to Firmino and Origi as a different sort of player to both of these.

{Ed002's Note - Don't forget Ings.}

5.) 21 Apr 2017 13:26:30
Fair call but he still needs to prove he can recover from some pretty serious injuries. I think going into a potential CL campaign season with just Firmino and Origi and Ings is a big risk (again assuming we sell Sturridge) .

On a related topic, we also clearly need an option to cover for Mane/ Coutinho too, but Firmino can offer that flexibility, so I personally think we should either go for a WF (e. g. Brandt) or a new CF (e. g. Lacazette/ Dembele) depending on how Klopp sees Firmino long term (ie. Is Firmino a full time striker or a part-time false nine? ), but we don't need both.

6.) 21 Apr 2017 14:08:05
Agreed with Zimbo. A wide forward like Brandt/ Williams will give us enough flexibility; Mane I think can also play in the middle, after all. Firmino and Origi with Mane as a cover and hopefully Ings/ youth players for cup games ought to be enough. That said, I really like the growth of Dembele and wouldn't mind seeing him in the club. We are not in a position to offer him regular time though.

Also, if Alex OC comes to the club, he would be able to offer cover both for the Lallana and the wide positions, minimizing the need of "pure" CF even further. I guess we will see.

7.) 22 Apr 2017 09:31:40
Do you think Liverpool could possibly have the stomach to pay 60 million euros?

8.) 22 Apr 2017 11:11:10
Somewhat related, personally from what little I've seen of him to like him do like him as a player. But he has 25 goals in 27, but read 9 were from the penalty spot (which again I don't discount as is a talent to put pens away) but that means in open play has 15 in 27.

Mane has 13 in 27 from playing wide in the BPL which I think shows how good a signing Mane has turned out to be!

Who for, Robin?

Fair play to us for holding on to couts after that massive offer. but if we have any hope of competing for top honours we MUST keep our best players. I don't care what anyone says money isn't everything keep couts and add further quality to the team. tata Barcelona 🖕.


1.) 18 Aug 2017 18:39:46
Barca could not keep hold of Neymar and look at the crap storm they are in right now. The same thing will happen to us if we sell Cou as no one will sell us their best players hence, we will overpay for players who are not worth Cou's left foot like Lanzini, Laxalt and Meyer.



15 Aug 2017 09:28:26
Eds002 can I have you're thoughts as to what you would do if you were in charge of Liverpool transfers this window. I know you would cut out the tapping up obviously but would you sell couts and can an sakho and who would you go after knowing who's available for transfers to us . just curious as to who you would keep and who you would fetch in👍👍 I'm looking forward to s reply if you got time no probs if you've already done this reply before I can't find it in search engine 👍.


{Ed002's Note - There was a strong argument to sort things out with Sakho but Klopp won't do that. If any players want to leave and an acceptable offer is made then they should be allowed to go. Some mistakes were made last two years and the players I suggested then would have been good additions: Begovic (G), Gaya (LB), Sule (CB), Diawara (DM), Riechedly Bazoer (M), Ousmane Dembele (W).}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 10:08:23
Cheers for replying. I agree who ever doesn't want to play for our massive club and good offer comes in then they should go. I've always rated begovic and sule 👍.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 10:40:54
Ed02, we did go for Dembele and Sule but the chose to either stay or go elsewhere in the case of Sule and Dembele respectively.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 15 Aug 2017 11:09:58
Thinking of an LFC side with all the players you have suggested Ed is making me drool slightly 😍😂.



11 Aug 2017 13:08:54
Got a feeling couts is off and we will sign that luan fella as his replacement 😤 Don't know anything about luan but hopefully he's half as decent at couts. can't believe he's handed in a transfer request if it's true but Barcelona always get what they want so when they put a bid in I automatically thought he's off if I'm honest. gutted really bad timing 1st day of the season and our best player wants out.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 13:24:21
Barcelona aren't the same side that many fear anymore. They need mass injections of quality throughout the team. Their midfield and defence needs an entire revamp. The magnificent iniesta is approaching 34. They've lost neymar and I can't see where the goal void isn't coming from. Coutinhos not going to fill that void so is messi and suarez both over 30 now I believe suppose to have incredible injury free seasons? I believe coutinhos probably seen as a replacement for iniesta or preparation to step into those big shoes.
Let's be clear. Barcelona is an aging regressing side with a new manager who I expect much of the same as the precious coach.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 14:18:37
Couldn't agree more al, he would be better off at Real Madrid!



02 Aug 2017 04:51:08
I'm absolutely gutted for sturridge 😤 I really hope I'm wrong but I just don't think we can rely him to go into a premier league campaign. which is a real shame just look at the way he took that goal . classss ., his body just always seems to give up on him which is a shame cause a fit sturridge is priceless to us. only positive I've taken out of tonight with his injury is that a front 3 of salah. mane. bobby is scary ., . Munich who had out a strong side ( I know pre season) could not cope with their speed and movement. hope it's nothing to bad for sturridge get well soon bud 👍.


1.) 02 Aug 2017 07:03:30
He has come out and said it is fatigue and nothing serious. For the love of Fowler.

2.) 02 Aug 2017 07:54:49
I hope so fingers crossed!



28 Jul 2017 07:49:46
does anyone else agree with me that our attack is looking scary with couts salah mane firmino or sturridge? Really don't think we could do much better up top. think defenders will be bricking it coming up against that lot? Keep hendo fit and hopefully add kieta next to him with wini aswell. then vvd next to matip in defence and we good to go👍👍surely this team won't be far off competing for title barring injuries of course. just my opinion.


1.) 28 Jul 2017 11:18:35
I'm sure it'll look really good when the ball bobbles in to the goal and when it doesn't we'll be crying for a world class striker.

Absolutely shocking the way we are going about things😢I'm still hoping something can be done with Southampton regarding van the man and this is our way of softening them up so in the next couple of weeks we can start to talk again through the proper channels 🤞.

I know he's only played in Scotland eds . BUT this kid looks the dogs danglys trust me. I've watched him live as well and the boy is good going forward and loves a tackle a bit like Flanagan when he came on the scene.


{Ed025's Note - i will take your word for it hmasson, i dont see a lot of scottish football clashes with the great british bake off.. :)

Don't you read any of the posts 😉We got kieta lined up have faith in what macca says. he thinks pip will stay but kieta and vvd could be his replacements. 😤There's 2 weeks left of the window and if as reported we get 118mil for him there are players out there who could come in and do a cracking job for us. just have faith couts will not go unless we have something lined up im confident. there would be uproar if he went and nothing was done to replace him and I reckon all the people in charge must surely realise this. chill and enjoy the ride nobody is bigger than our massive club.
