Hey Eds. Any chance at all of us going in for Wanyama now that he's requested to leave?

I know the squad is ridiculously huge but he'd be perfect for our midfield with Lucas on the way out.

{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool has never shown an interest in him.}

Hey Eds,

Lots of talk about a right back coming in this Summer even though we're well stocked in that position.

Are we looking to bring in a left back though? We've no real cover for Moreno there (presuming Enrique is going)

Also, Alex Sandro, Porto left back. We were linked with him last year. Would we be interested or is he likely to move this summer.

{Ed001's Note - the only one I know of is Garbutt.}

1.) 11 Jun 2015 08:28:34
Enrique has one year left on his contract as I recall. Given his age and lack of any real play time in ages I can't see anyone being very interested in him.

2.) 11 Jun 2015 10:48:40
If they sign Montoya then he can cover LB if Moreno struggles/gets injured and Wisdom/Manquillo can play RB.

Looking back at some of the early season games, I still think Manquillo shows real potential, he's just more defensive than attack minded. Ultimately Flanno will hopefully get fit again too.

I hope they only go for one signing that's flexible enough to play either side.

3.) 11 Jun 2015 13:12:56
Hey ed - do you think he would choose us? I have never watched him play, but like what I hear in scout reports - and it will be pretty much in the face of MU if he turns out to be on par with 30 ml Luke Shaw (I like Shaw, but 30 ml? Ridiculous.)
My chief worry is that even if he comes here, we will not develop him properly. He would need to receive a chance, especially with Moreno being somewhat shaky defensively - or are we playing Lallana on LB this season?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea mate, you would need to ask him, it is a personal decision he has to make now.}

4.) 11 Jun 2015 13:25:09
If we are properly looking for a new LB would love to see us go for Andy Robertson from hull. Looks like a real star in the making i think. don't see LB as a priority though



03 Jun 2015 22:50:06
Hi eds, long time reader, first time poster. Has the club ever had an interest in Cristian Ansaldi? He'd be a decent signing, a solid attacking full back and can play both sides. he's only on loan at Atletico as far as I know. Do you know of any potential interest, if not from us?

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest from Liverpool. There has been interest from various clubs in the passed but nothing I am aware of right now.}

Paulinho done and now Jean Seri said to be signing for Barcas midfield.

Any insight if they want Phil for the neymar position or midfield Eds? .

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 21 Aug 2017 02:37:08
Jean Michael Seri is Barca's alternative to Coutinho I think. Hopefully they move on with Seri now and leave Coutinho be for another season as long as he gets his a** back in order and helps us have a good season.



19 Aug 2017 01:23:12
Hey eds. Thomo today mentioned Dele Alli amongst others as hypothetical replacements for coutinho.

Staying hypothetical here, if we did receive £120mill + for Phil what would be the chances of Tottenham taking that for Dele?

Its probably the only scenario where i'd be satisfied by a phil exit!

{Ed001's Note - about the same as me winning the lottery this weekend. Levy would want more than that.}

1.) 19 Aug 2017 05:32:51
Levy would want 150 million pounds plus add ons. Basically telling us to go f**k ourselves.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 07:46:38
We should've just paid him the wages he wanted and offered game time and we could've had him for £5million a few years ago.

{Ed001's Note - or made sure Gerrard was awake when the lad was coming in to be shown around by Stevie G. He was supposed to be meeting his idol and having a look round with a view to signing, he came in and Gerrard was asleep so it never happened and he went and looked round Spurs after and signed for them. If Gerrard had been awake, the lad would never have even looked anywhere else, but it must have felt like a huge slap in chops for him that Gerrard couldn't even be bothered to be awake for the appointment they had made.}

3.) 19 Aug 2017 08:42:32
I'm pretty sure the reason wasn't Stevie G being asleep. Ian Ayer recently said Alli wanted to sign but LFC felt that £5m was too much for an unproven young player at that time.

{Ed001's Note - Alli himself said about Gerrard being asleep when he visited was why he never signed when he was shown around. Ayre doesn't know his arse from his elbow.}

4.) 19 Aug 2017 08:44:13
Not bothered really Ed, as we had the "Genius" BR in charge at the time and would prolly have played him at DM or RWB, just like he messed about with Can, Markovic and Lallana.

5.) 19 Aug 2017 09:24:40
Anybody else feel let down by Gerrard there?
I can't lie, that's actually guttering.
They always say, never meet your idol.

{Ed001's Note - partly Gerrard, but partly why the hell did no one think to wake him ready? They knew the lad was coming in, it was all agreed with MK Dons, hence his visit, why was someone not giving Gerrard an alarm call to ask him to be there?}

6.) 19 Aug 2017 09:28:02
Cardiff Red, the club was hardly going to come out and say a club legend was fast asleep when Dele Ali showed up at Melwood to be shown around. Alli is a LFC fan and would have made some compromises to make LFC his ultimate priority. Maybe he did not feel valued enough when the club failed to show him around and hence chose Spurs who actually have a recent history of grooming young players.

{Ed001's Note - the deal was all agreed, so no idea why Ayre has to gob off anyway. Alli was having a look round with a view to signing, MK Dons and Karl Robinson (who was in charge at the time) have both confirmed they had a deal with Liverpool agreed, only for Spurs to step in when he didn't sign it immediately.}

7.) 19 Aug 2017 09:30:55
If we'd have signed him he'd still be on loan to Barnsley!

8.) 19 Aug 2017 09:47:57
Dude i accept stevie g is a great servant from club but he is not a god neither is anyone. the mlst important thing is the club nothing is mlre important than the club. and if he gave a word he should keep it. that's y i feel ronaldo is better in this dept. he respects the fans. that they are nothing without them. otherwise they would be messi who has world of talent but doesn't give a rubbish about his fans.

9.) 19 Aug 2017 09:51:39
Defo make that man a club coach then.

10.) 19 Aug 2017 09:55:40
Should have pushed the boat out for the kid and had Gerrard there. but if he's as big a fan of the club as people say he still would have signed. jesus i would sign if Stevie was in bed with my Mrs.

{Ed001's Note - you aren't a professional player thinking about your career though. It is easy to say that when you are a fan who has no chance of playing professionally, but totally different when it is your career and livelihood. Your future depends on the decision. When one club pushes out all the stops, arranges a loan back to ensure you can leave on good terms with your current club, promises you will get in the first team the following season so long as you play well, while the other talks about reserve team football and can't even be bothered to get the club captain out of bed to meet you, which would you choose?}

11.) 19 Aug 2017 09:59:30
Can you imagine SAF letting his players or staff get away with that nonsense? He would have sent people round to drag him out of bed!

12.) 19 Aug 2017 11:37:37
Adam, SAF did do that and that is how Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal got away as Arsenal was also interested in him when he was at Cardif as a 17 yr old. SAF was supposed to tour OT with Ramsey in the summer of 2008 but instead, sent Gary Neville to tour OT with Ramsey. Where has Ramsey been playing since 2008?



29 Mar 2016 14:15:23
Hey Eds. I was watching Yarmolenko there again v Wales. It would be a travesty if the blues get him.

I know we were interested in the past. Did we ever come close?

A 6 foot +, left footed, versatile wide forward who scores goals is surely something we lack! he's proved himself in the CL, the Euros and vs England a few times. Surely we'd still be interested. From a Klopp angle he's not to disimilar to Reus.

{Ed002's Note - No, Yarmolenko was never close to joining Liverpool.}



21 Feb 2016 01:51:20
Hi Eds. I was just looking through the Premier League squads on transfermarkt. We have by far the largest senior squad of 32! On top of that we have 4 senior players out on loan.

Spurs have 22, leicester 23, city 24, utd 26, arsenal 27. Chelsea won the league last year with 21.

Why the hell do we need such a large squad? Is this just a sign of a failed FSG transfer policy? Shouldnt we just jettison 15 or 16 out of that 36 and bring in 4 quality players. We'd probably end up saving some money! Interested to hear your thoughts / explanation on it.

{Ed001's Note - it was the manager that was at fault for this. He wanted a large squad.}

1.) 21 Feb 2016 04:38:11
Totally agree, most have said on here we can comfortably lose 10 from that squad with maybe just 3-4 coming in at most. Rodgers just buying for the sake of it. No wonder he couldn't figure out his best team.

2.) 21 Feb 2016 13:46:07
His idea was just buy, buy, buy and see what sticks. That is not a strategy. That is incompetence.

3.) 21 Feb 2016 16:21:07
I hope, and expect, a number of players in the senior squad to be moved on in the summer.

I think Klopp will bring in a few players, but there will be far more leaving than arriving.



18 Feb 2016 11:17:07
Hi Eds. A lot of the user posts about players to go in the Summer are including James Milner.

I don't disagree but would it even be possible to get rid of him? Is it true that we gave him £130k p/ w with a £6 million signing on fee?


{Ed001's Note - it was something around that mark yes.}

1.) 18 Feb 2016 11:46:14
Wow! .

2.) 18 Feb 2016 12:24:44
The club will struggle to offload a no of players including him. There wouldn't be too many parties interested in our players. And even if they do the club will have to take a massive loss on their transfer.

3.) 18 Feb 2016 13:26:55
I'm pretty sure Milner would attract interest and at his age (and lookin at the likes of Jonjo as an example) transfer fee for someone of his caliber would have to be at least 10-15mln. If his wages would be too high for some clubs, maybe we'd just have to discount the transfer fee to make the deal attractive.

I suspect he'll stay though and fills a very useful function in certain situations, especially as someone who can provide support to an attack but also has the energy to track back to shut down a particularly dangerous opposition fullback. Just make sure you have other attackers who provide the flair and pace!

4.) 18 Feb 2016 14:37:06

His age is 30+ and I extremely doubt anyone would pay 10-15 mill for him.

5.) 18 Feb 2016 17:39:02
He's only just turned 30 - Google it, it's easy - and whilst i don't think we'd get the numbers quoted above I do reckon we'd get back not far off that signing on fee (if that is the correct figure) .

6.) 18 Feb 2016 13:45:35
Might he leave in summer then ed?

{Ed001's Note - it is entirely possible, nothing is set in stone right now and no one is sure of staying.}

7.) 18 Feb 2016 19:12:02
Don't suppose it really matters what we paid for them and what we are likely to get back, if the player isn't wanted/ needed by Klopp then he will be gone eventually.
If we lose a ton of money on selling say Lallana, Moreno, ballotelli etc then it's Brendan's fault and the clubs for letting him waste it.

A terrible buy. Yes.
Past his prime and poor for the last 6 years. Yes.
Troublemaker. Yes apparently.

But never anywhere near world class? ! that's not even harsh. Its ridiculous.

Won every single thing there was to win at club and national level. multiple times!

In uefa team of the season six years running.

In fifa team of the season five years running.

Voted worlds best goalkeeper five times.

Most clean sheets in champions league history.

Talented enough at only 16 years of age to play in the champions league for one of the biggest clubs in the world and won it outright at 18.
Can you imagine a 16 year old playing in goals for real madrid now? 16?

Made some of the greatest reflex seens at the highest level

Was outstanding, absolutely world class and one of the main reasons madrid won la liga the year under capello.

Never anywhere near world class?
Even a catalan native wouldn't agree with you.

I can't understand why we choose to keep 3 average keepers on our books similar in standard.

Most top sides have 1 × Top Goalkeeper, an undoubted first choice. 1 × Experienced back up not expecting to feature much and 1 x young star with potential to be no.1 one day. The top keeper plays 95% of games in a season.

Sell 2 of ours and buy 1 top Premier League keeper.

I'm sure we could have got Kasper or Butland this Summer.

Mignolet was poor again on saturday.

Grujic looked promising again today. You would fear for him if Keita is signed though.

Hendo-Can-Coutinho-Grujic-Wijnaldum-Lallana. We've Six excellent midfielders for 3 positions already plus Milner and Ejaria if required.

Cant get my head round Keita really

Maybe Phils said he's off next year and Keita is coming in early as his replacement.
