We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter page.

17 Jun 2019 13:46:29
Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Discussion Posts and the More Liverpool Posts pages.

Hi Ed002, Dorukhan Tokoz is the latest player we have been linked with.

Know about it or is it just the media blabbering on?

Believable1 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I know that Udinese have been in talks.}

17 Jun 2019 11:31:13
Dorukhan Toköz is an interesting link as he's fairly versatile and can equally play at right-back as well as in midfield. He wouldn't be too expensive (although Udinese had a bid of around £7m supposedly turned down) and could provide back-up in numerous areas. and he gets the odd goal and assist from defensive midfield. not a bad squad player IMHO but allegedly Beşiktaş want around £9m for him.

Only way we will sign another CM is if they are able to provide cover in other positions in defence like Fabinho does.

Hi Ed's just wanted to ask has there been any new developments in Clyne at all?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - not that I know of. I had expected him to make the loan permanent, but they are having a rethink due to his lifestyle.}

17 Jun 2019 09:38:53
Saw him stocking up on pizzas and junk in Waitrose by ours with his boys. Clearly living his best life!

Should have never signed him. The Southampton defence at the time before he moved made him look good.

He is just costing the club more and more money the longer he stays on.

We would be better off terminating his contract and pay what is due to him as he is on holday at Anfield and unlikely any club going to take on his wages.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he never looked good at Southampton or Palace, it was a bizarre signing caused by bad scouting. One of the most important things is to check out a player's background and lifestyle and no one did that.}

17 Jun 2019 12:33:50
Such a short career in football so why waste it? Can party and do what you want at 36+ when you retire!

Ed002, while ago you mentioned we had talks with Maxwel Cornet's agent, yet to discuss anything with Lyon.

Do you know of any further talks since then?

Believable4 0Unbelievable

Liverpool remain keen.}

16 Jun 2019 18:46:55
Thanks for the reply Ed. Perhaps Cornet would be the best option when it comes to a versatile forward as backup to our current front 3.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I think so, assuming the front three are staying.}

Aye, he'll take some licking.

If he does come let's hope he SPRINKLES some magic rather than turning out to be a FLAKE.

Oh and please God let him take the 99 shirt number. That alone would make him a cult hero.

Why don't we go for Frank Ribery? Still a half decent player with bags of experience. Think he can provide decent cover attacking wise.

Another day, another tedious comment about @ed002 hinting our front 3 will leave.

Agree0 5Disagree

{Ed001's Note - you really are just a troll with no ability to read, he is doing no such thing, simply saying that there would not be any major attacker coming in unless one of them were to go. Why do you come on here if all you want to do is make attacks against us editors? Reading comprehension is so low these days it is embarrassing.}

17 Jun 2019 11:35:26
Brolin have a time out, does the 10 relate to your age!

The Ed’s have consistently said we will only see a major signing ala Pépé IF one of the front 3 leave.

However we are looking at options what can offer cover up top that wouldn’t be too expensive e. g cornet.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - also Ed002 has been quite clear that he does not expect Salah to leave this summer.}

17 Jun 2019 12:36:12
Agree Ed001, people need to read.

Salah is unlikely to leave but assuming his agent does not find a suitor before the window shuts. Salah does want to go and at the moment his agent will continue to negotiate with other clubs. At the moment there are no takers but this is football and anything can happen.

For now Salah is going nowhere.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 10:55:28
Salah has apparently told the club that he will stay for another year and then re-evaluate his situation. Seems fair to me.

Believable0 9Unbelievable

Because he’s been turned down by at least 3 clubs. Shameful punting of himself around the world but I’ve always said I’d take a 100% commitment Mo over the replacement options. Klopps worry has to be that at some point his head goes down again and he forgets to pass the ball, as we have seen in periods this season.

Tough situation for a manager when one of your star players wants to go elsewhere but elsewhere doesn’t want him. You are stuck with possible mentally damaged goods and all you can do is hope that they can put their wants and desires away for 9 months.

Ed’s, (not Klopp and Mo specific but an insight into management if possible) does a manager go through thoughts like that and allow that kind of thinking into their decision making? What are their realistic options in handling a situation like this?

Agree2 3Disagree

{Ed001's Note - the options are to make the most of it or get rid. Paisley would have sold him without question but he would also have already had someone lined up to replace him.}

16 Jun 2019 12:10:17
well klopp will be very used to losing his best players.

Agree0 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 12:25:34
It's a funny one, he seemed to show a big difference this year in his selfishness. Was still changing games and scoring goals but there were many occasions where he didn't put the teams interests ahead of his own which I'm sure bothered klopp big time. The issue was we literally had nobody to play in his role without changing the system up a bit. If we could get that added attacking player into the squad that can be trusted to play at our high levels, klopp may have more chances to remind mo it's not always him who has to score. I remember the Everton draw. A 5 yard square pass to mane and we score, and he could see him clearly too. He risked trying to finish himself which cost us a goal.

On the other hand he has contributed so many important goals, he hasn't showed the lack of care to play that coutinho did and as long as he puts in a great season on the field again and cuts out some frustrating things that have crept in recently I really wouldn't be bothered if he moved on next summer.

The main reason is not the lack of his quality, it's actually because I've full faith in our recruitment policies that the right player will be bought in after. It's not like the days when losing Suarez resulted in balotelli and Lambert. Couldn't possibly pick strikers in world football with complete opposite attributes from suarez to those 2. Its laughable really the state we were in then.

Agree10 2Disagree

16 Jun 2019 12:27:23
I assume that the back up plan is what we are hearing now as noise for Pépé but I’d take £150 mil of anybody’s money and take £90 mil of it round to Man City and stick a bid in for Sanè. Munich aren’t loving that price and I’d even consider upping it to £100 for the man that Klopp wanted before Salah. That kid is a born Klopp style player and I would love to see what he can to improve a player who has already shown he can do a top level job in our league. Imagine him as an out and out started unlike his up and down life at City. Fantasy league stuff but City so seem like they want to cash in and we would have the cash waiting.

I love Mo and all he has done for us but I trust the info that the Ed’s have shared and am in no doubt that Mo wouldn’t not be playing with 100% head and heart now that he (his terms) have been rejected by other clubs. This is our biggest season coming up and it must be a tough spot for Klopp, stick with tried and tested and hope he gives everything when we need him most or cut out the potential problem before it festers and get a replacement which is risky. Seems a coin flip decision for me but Sanè would be perfect and no risk and even Pépé seems good enough to be a safe replacement.

Agree2 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 12:33:17
I said this after the CL final Har. In possibly the biggest game of his career you saw glimpses of that attitude and you could see the reaction in Bobby and Manes face, they were not happy. There’s a shot of Bobby moaning hard at Mo as they walk off at HT.

It’s such a tough call hence why I asked the managerial angle question of the Ed’s. I like you believe in them to not only make the right decision but to also be well prepared now they know he could soften his contractual demands any time and probably get a bite. What turned me off the guy was that it was always his “dream” to play for RM and that was the team he tried to get to last year and again this year but now he must have some sleep issues because he now hasn’t another couple of “dream” clubs. That’s the point when you realise his head is elsewhere and with an already less than perfect relationship with Klopp you feel it’s getting to the end of the road.

Agree0 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 12:35:06
He'll be 28 next year. If we assume he has another good final season, and he leaves for 150 million, I think that'll be good business for us. We also will have a year to find a replacement.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - we have already had a year to find a replacement.}

16 Jun 2019 12:42:17
Ed001 do you think Pépé has been identified as the replacement of Salah moves on?

Personally would of liked Sancho from the fact he’s English and I feel English talent less likely to be pulled to Real / Barcelona eventually. I know Sancho isn’t the finished article but he’s a player I feel under a coach like Klopp would thrive and become a better player. But I am sure if Sancho does ever move it’ll be somewhere else.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I believe so, that Pepe is the chosen one to replace Salah.}

16 Jun 2019 12:57:14
Thanks for reply Ed001. Suppose ideal world would be get Pépé in for 6months at least before Salah leaves, could you a situation where that could happen?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - possibly yes.}

16 Jun 2019 13:08:09
Ed, what are the chances that we would buy before he leaves? I do appreciate that Ed2 is strong on the “when Salah goes” so it’s not the expected plan of action.

Down sides being that the incoming player would be getting less game time and that Mo would also have his nose pushed out by sharing a role. Also is the obvious that we would be paying millions for a 1 season rotation player.

My uneducated thought is that the upside gives you quality in rotation to allow for a Mo wobble and not only that you know he is going in at least 9/ 10 months anyway so it’s a short term over investment that protects your position with a guaranteed return in less than a year. The incoming player is also well aware that he is the future and that the other player will be leaving. Again, as someone from a non football background but a grasp of business it would seem the safest option in such a massive season and could also be valuable in coverage across the whole front.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is a very expensive way to do business though. It is only likely to happen when the club expect him to go and it would be more a case of the move away falling through, so we end up with both, rather than being a plan.}

16 Jun 2019 13:09:19
Ed001 - do you think we could purchase Pepe this window so we have the replacement signed and bedded in for the Salah departure sort of similar to Salah signing and Coutinho eventually leaving.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I would only expect it if Salah is looking like he is about to leave. So probably not this summer.}

16 Jun 2019 13:24:00
1 year of full commitment from Salah then sell him on for a big fee would be really good business by Liverpool. Gives us the most stable option of going for the league next season and means we can focus on other targets for the season ahead rather than rocking the boat. I think another season is needed to assess Pépé as well and see if he’s as good as reported to be because from what I’ve seen, he’s not on salah’s level. Maybe under better coaching he could reach that level but he isn’t now, and I think if we’re genuinely going for the title next season, we need the ‘now’ in our squad. Having said that, I’d love sane over any replacements but it’s never going to happen.

Agree4 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 13:24:23
Have to agree with Ed001 regarding Sir Bob Paisley. He wouldn't have lost a second of sleep moving a player like Salah on but there would have been a replacement lined up well in advance. I honestly don't have a issue with Salah moving on if he really want's to as Ed002 has always said players are transient they come and go and that's football lad's.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 13:29:30
If Salah is that desperate to leave, then I say sell him and get it over with. We do not need attention seekers or inflated egos in the dressing room. Its obvious Salah thinks he is above the club and the other players (some of which are more important to the club than he is) . Whether its Pepe or Sanch or whoever KLopp may have in mind, get it over with this summer itself. The last thing we need is for Salah to kick up a fuss next summer and for Klopp to have none of his first choice targets like Pepe available to sign coz they signed for new clubs the season before.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 14:13:11
Im certainly not convinced on pepe. People are quick to get excited over him simply for his goal return this year. By the way 10 of his goals were penalties, only 13 from open play, he isn't as clinical a goalscorer as many people are thinking he is. I wouldn't be spending anything like that sort of money on him. a lot changes in a year too, Felix, sancho, fernandes, pepe, jovic were not anywhere near hot property this time last year. Many more will reach high levels too in the next year. No need for panic buys of any sort.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 14:14:38
Any chance of a Keita like deal, or is pepe moving this summer?

Cheers.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is moving this year.}

16 Jun 2019 14:21:06
Maybe Klopp will do what Paisley would have done then as I think Jurgen has a mixture of Shanks and Bob’s qualities

He has the ability to inspire the fans and bring the club together but he also has built a team of specialists around him with coaches medics nutritionists analysts etc

Klopp is loyal but if you don’t follow the game plan then he gets rid.

Think we trust in Klopp and see where we go.

We have got a red machine rather than a load of galacticos and that’s the way it should be.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 14:27:09
Salah seems like a spoiled brat who is not getting his way when it comes to getting his dream move. Nothing suggests that Madrid actually do want to sign him.

His agent has been advertisibg him around and nothing has come of it.

Now what do we expect from Salah this coming season knowing he still wants to leave?

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 15:04:34
This was first reported by the daily mirror I think, yesterday without a SINGLE quote anywhere in sight. Now other papers are literally copy pasting what they wrote today lol big title that he "rejected 150mil move" and that he will review his options next year, but again they didn’t actually quote Salah anywhere lol.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 15:05:45
I think we're overreacting here a bit to salah in fairness. He very quickly rose to the elite stardom level with his performances in 2 years since joining us, with Ronaldo and Messi finally leaving their thrones, it's up to the next group of players who want that role, playing for Madrid, winning ballon dors it's what every player outside England dreams of. Salah will be 28 next summer, I don't think it's completely uncommon that these type of players throw their interest about while their hot property and big clubs in rebuild. If he plays well this season and gets his move next year what is the issue? 3 world class seasons contributed, his value 5× improved and a 28 year old who we can plan in advance to replace. He's not been saying silly petulant things to media to get on the back pages like pogba and hazard have openly said they want out. He's not acting up like coutinho did, or VVD did for Southampton. If he keeps his head down and plays well for us again how can ye call him spoilt brat and no royalty etc. He's not moving to a league rival either. If his wish is to play elsewhere, that's fair enough, it's his life and this stage of his career it's probably next year or never for him He's done nothing wrong whatsoever so far in this situation, what's he doing wrong exactly?

Agree5 4Disagree

16 Jun 2019 15:08:19
Oh Pepe, Oh pepe, running down the wing . pepe pepe pepe . doesn't have the same ring, it's going to ruin the song 😂.

16 Jun 2019 15:29:59
So if Pépé is moving this year then Ed we may well miss our chance at getting the guy we have potentially identified as Salah replacement?

Agree4 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - there is always someone else. Remember when Brandt turned us down? We ended up bringing in the 4th choice, some guy called Salah, whatever happened to him?}

16 Jun 2019 15:54:05
Yeah that went well Ed as we all no Salah has done very well with us indeed and tbh if he gives us one more good season he deserves to go to Madrid imo if that is his dream. That’s of course if Madrid still interested in him next season. I wish we would bring Pépé in June so he can integrate into the team for a season but understand it’s not financially viable and not happening.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 15:55:51
As long as Salah gives us 100% this next season I'm ok with him leaving after that.
If you think of Michael Owen, Fernando Torres, Louis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho. Liverpool had the peak playing years from all of them. Once they left our great club to supposedly 'better themselves ' they were never the same players. I think the same will happen with Salah.
So hopefully one more good season and then sell him for a huge profit.

Agree4 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 16:24:30
In regards to Salah, I think it's not over until this summer's window is over. Not because I doubt the Eds' words or what is quoted from him in the media today. But because we have seen regular petulant on-field behaviour from him this year, and if Klopp is successful with a move for Pepe, then I don't put it beyond Salah to want to leave in a huff. Still a nice guy. Just a petulant primadonna nice guy now.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 16:36:38
First of all i think we already have salah replacement in origi. He has speed and scores goals when it matters. Apart from that we have brewster who either makes it this season or moves.
Second of all being forced to watch ligue1 a lot every year i will say pepe is not any solution, some x club will be wasting a lot of money on him and i hope its not liverpool. Good player alright no where near what prices are being touted though. You look at how players performed in defeats and pepe went missing far too much for lille.

Agree1 15Disagree

16 Jun 2019 17:18:41
This thread was going well until I got to ”we have a replacement for Salah in Origi. ”.

Agree9 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 18:28:39
Am I the only one who has an issue with signing pepe? He's a 25 or30 million valued player at tops. 70 mill is the price lille have set, far from his true value, 70 million should be getting you a player still young but also proven at the highest level over a period of at least 2 or 3 seasons, or else a teenage or early 20s wonderkid standing out in his age group. For similar or slightly more you could tell offer dybala a perfect role. Since higuain and Ronaldo came to juve he suffered last 2 seasons, he won't stay behind Ronaldo another year. His 3 years before that he was the main man, scored and assisted regularly since his teens in a strong league. He's the same age as pepe but has proven quality and experience already. For 3 years in his early 20s he was genuine world class. He's only suffered since he's been played around off 2 goalscoring strikers who in or around the box only have a shot on their mind. Be a perfect fit in place of salah for probably half his transfer fee. A firmino type forward would be perfect for him.

Agree4 3Disagree

16 Jun 2019 18:35:12
Ed 1, how would you go about replacing Salah' would you go like for like or look to change it? If we get a good price for him ability wise I think he can easily be replaced, I don't think his all round ability is that great but it's how effective he is to the way the 3 forwards play which would make him harder to replace going like for like. he benefits the most out of the space created for him, I can't see him doing as well as he has for us anywhere else unless he is the main man in the team.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on who is available, if possible like for like as the system works but it could as easily be a left sided player and shift Mane back to the right.}

16 Jun 2019 18:55:22
Salah has been looking for a move away for a while, I mentioned to Ed002, surely the club are aware of this to which he said they would be.

So for me, we should go for Pépé not only as a replacement but also to show Salah we know his intentions.

And if Salah decided not to leave, we would have four quality forwards to compete on all fronts! Those of you that are old enough to remember, United dominated with four decent forwards, so why can’t we!

Agree3 1Disagree

16 Jun 2019 18:51:21
Fair point Har. He’s another name that we know klopp is keen on so quiet easily could be in the mix if Salah stays another year and we miss out on Pepe. Any idea on his current situation Eds? Does he have plans to move on just yet and do we still consider him a person of interest?

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 19:41:44
I think Salah knows that he has to maintain a very high level if he wants to get a move to Madrid. By the way, at Liverpool we play to his strengths, at Madrid they may ask him to play to their system, that did not work out well for him at Chelski.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what he has supposedly said and I would expect the club to read the riot act to him if he is using social media to share information about his future. The club need to reel in the new PR company and the professsional photographer he has been on vacation with and the out of Liverpool commitments he has taken on.}

16 Jun 2019 20:33:53
I'd take cash and Asensio for Salah. I know swap deals don't really work, but Klopp has tried for him in the past if you are to believe what you read and Madrid would probably be open to letting him leave.

What would you think about that Ed01?

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't touch Asensio, he is simply not that good.}

16 Jun 2019 20:40:52
Ed, so, trying to get my head round this - apologies if it's been done, can't see where it has.

Is it the case that Pepe is seen as the replacement of choice - at the moment, IF Salah were to leave THIS summer?


If Salah departs next season, we look at it then and see who is available? Even if that means no Pepe.

As you say we've had 2 seasons to pick a replacement, is it your view we should just move Salah on and get the replacement in, or just get the replacement in and see what happens with Salah? Sounds as though he's going sooner or later?

Is Pepe your choice? If not then who do you see as the ideal man?

Cheers for your time. Still a great site after all these years.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't look like Salah will go this summer, but if he were to go Pepe would be an option. It would depend on price, salary demands and his desire to join if he would be the number one choice in that instance.

Yes, it would be re-examined again, with players scouted over the season next time around. It would almost certainly rule out Pepe as he is almost certain to move this summer, which is part of his appeal, he is available.

It really depends on Salah's attitude as to what I would do. From what I have seen or heard, I do think it has to be considered but it is not that easy to sell a player of his quality as only a few clubs can afford him.

My choice was Pulisic but we missed out on him, for me Son is the one who would be the best option as he would allow for much more flexibility. He, Firmino and Mane would all be capable of playing any of the 3 positions.}

16 Jun 2019 21:33:30
Son would be a dream come true for me Ed. I'd love to see that happen.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - me too, I have been saying for years on here we should have signed him, long before he went to Spurs. Great player.}

16 Jun 2019 20:58:27
It's funny how complete nonsense gets so quickly spread around like common facts. Salah said this salah said that, salah chooses to stay another year or if salah decides to leave this summer. Where are people getting the info from. Salah has a long term contract with a huge valuation currently. It's hardly in his hands whatsoever when and where he decides to go, he holds no control at all in this situation as of now.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 22:35:26
Sorry Ed001 mate so is absolutely categorically zero chance we bring in Pépé this window and Salah stays?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 23:09:09
It's actually amusing that a Sunday article with headline of "salah rejects €150m offers" followed by a write up which contains so many huge revelations, and the only slight reference of source is 3 words. "Mirror sport reveal". Why are using that as any sort of fact. I believe salah does want a move soon, we will be in control of when though. Anyone suggesting salah has any choice in when and where he moves really need to stop this. So if salah has clearly been trying to drum up interest to leave at some point (this is accurate) and then an offer of 150 is produced, but not us, only salah has a say and he decides to reject this move he's seeking to play another season and then get to choose what he wants again. Are we that deluded to twist this story to such nonsense without any information whatsoever in term of source. Then add that pepe is his replacement without any substance.

In fact the only thing that has been added as of late other than tabloid headlines is we have shown interest in cornet. If seen the ed answer that clearly with confidence maybe 3 times, yet I've seen pepe mentioned 100 times. Posters have today been typing abuse towards Salah when in fact he hasn't shown any signs of disrespect to us at all. No talking to the media, no transfer requests, he's on a long contract so won't be holding us to ransom. I'd say it's common knowledge between everybody that if salah wants his big move to happen, he needs to perform well this season to show he's worthy of that money. Win win for everybody. We never once let control us, he refused to play in August, we kept him, his only choice then is to perform til the next window or else Barcelona won't give what we want. Players on long contracts have no power at all, and if anyone actually thinks that salah has any input in how mega clubs like Madrid and liverpool deal with a colossal amount of money, please stop this rubbish.

Do you really think a club like lille, are in any situation to hold out for 3 huge clubs to bid anything close to that. He will move for half that price. Fernandes only last week had every club queing up to pay 70mil too. Any bid of 40 mil would be accepted immediately. If Felix was only allowed to leave benfica this year for his 110mil buyout clause it would have been met already.

They could hardly be capable of rejecting a 60-70 mil bud. 3 regularly touted all summer as the hottest properties with huge clubs interested. All at weaker clubs with 1 season success, while other players around Europe being signed for much less. Pepe might be a possible competition option with a 30 35 mill bid, certainly wouldn't be promised a key role at any club like bayern, juve or us. It's all complete made up rubbish.

A week after fernandes was being heralded as the next great midfielder with every club after him suddenly nothing of any interest. For close to 70 million you are wanting a sane, son, dembele, dybala, guedes, mahrez, lacazette, havertz, . Many would cost much less. It's always the same made up garbage.

I don't get why people donot believe in origi. What has he got to do to earn a spot? With the kind of situation he has had with us, coming back, keeping it all away and scoring in so many crucial games let alone the final, shows sheer commitment and will. Time we show some respect. A player who has set his mind to leave from day 1 against a player who has fought around flopped around and yet worked hard.

I donot for one minute believe klopp can't work miracles with origi. Origi for me has the tools.
I mean yea we can go ahead and get pepe but he is hardly a salah replacement. If he has been scouted and recommended to klopp we really need to do better.

I understand why people are irate.

But I really hate this mentality of hating on players once there are rumours they might leave.

Salah is a top player and recognised as one of the best forwards in football. Sane and Pepe are nowhere near of his standard right now. Nowhere near. Let’s not pretend like he’s not a good player.

DESPITE THIS, I think one thing we can all agree on (especially after Couts leaving) is that we can trust Klopp and team to adapt the team and improve us regardless of departures! He is not irreplaceable.

salah can have a desire to go next year and still perform this year. I think we need to wake up a bit as fans and realize that the players aren't driven by their love for liverpool fc like we are. We want superstars then we want them to have unconditional love for lfc whilst being model citizens whose poo is colored liverpool red. . . reality is the big names will look for bigger opportunity. Sorry that not all players see LFC as the only club for them.

Goodmorning Eds. Is Klopp really open to a Salah sale as it is reported in the media and if so are there any interested teams in taking him?

Believable0 4Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - this has been done to death on here. RTP.}

15 Jun 2019 09:21:07
The decision seems to be in Salahs hands and behind closed doors and to his agent he has shown a desire to go elsewhere in the past (and possibly again) . That hasn’t worked out due to contractual demands and now possibly the team he wants to go to having other plans.

Klopp does not seem the sort to hold people hostage of they want out and from what we have seen and heard there has been early moves to have options in place should Salah take this “dream” to the next level. I posted that I had it on very good authority that we asked to be informed over Sanè (clearly a tough option of impossible as City would be crazy to sell to us) and Pépé is now the buzz word around the forum. Both would only be considered if Salah went so are preparation moves rather than actual declarations of intent.

So it looks like Klopp wants to keep him but is preparing for the worst but wouldn’t fight it if Salah became an issue/ problem.

That’s how I see it based on what I’ve seen and read on here.

Thanks BeckersGloves. Can I just make an observation to the Eds. I have been a reader of this site for years, and seen it change from a rumour site (e. g. "my mum's best mate's gardener is also Rafa's gardener and he heard. ") to more of a gossip and opinion site, and that's all fine. I occasionally posted a rumour as I knew someone who worked at Melwood, but no longer. I dip in, more on a weekly basis nowadays, but still enjoy the gossip and the narkiness and snipes of the eds.

My observation is this: I understand the frustration and snipes to posters in relation to oft asked questions on the same subject over and over again but I find the 'RTP! ' answer a little frustrating also as using the search function is a little like splitting open a thousand oysters to find a single pearl. Is there a way of creating a 'Common Rumour Status' page that the RTP reply links to, with headings such as "Mo Salah and Klopp disagreement and possible sale. Current status"? Or some other way of helping us and maybe making your lives easier and more chilled? Just a suggestion, but if you want to have a go, I'm a big lad, I can take it!

Why would Salah leave. It was him and Firmino that was hassling Mane to sign a new contract. Why would he care about Mane if he was going anywere. Previously Salah and Klopp had fallen out and his agent had used this to get another payday but Klopp and Salah made up. All his world fame had come from playing for Liverpool and the success he has had with us so why would he take a chance of losing this.

Agree3 3Disagree

15 Jun 2019 10:53:07

100% agree stemfr. You need to be a big boy to comment on here sometimes with the way comments are ripped to shreds (not always by the Eds) . Of course the Eds are entitled to get narky every now and again. When dealing with the public it's inevitable.

Just another observation with regard to the site, typing a comment takes an age because the site becomes unresponsive. Anyone else have this issue? .

15 Jun 2019 15:47:25
I agree verdo although sometimes I think the Ed’s responses could be a little more diplomatic. I enjoy harmless banter as much as the next guy but sometimes it does go beyond that.
Let’s not forget this is a site run by the Eds for the posters. Therefore without the posters there is no site.
The Eds deserve a lot of respect for what they do of course but so do the people who take the time to post on the site.
I’m not having a moan but as we had got on to the subject I thought I’d air my view.

Salah wants to go to Real Madrid. More than Real Madrid want Salah.

When and if Real Madrid want Salah more, Real will pony up the money, and Salah will leave.

Klopp won't stand in the way. Because Salah is not irreplaceable.

Can we stop with the “Why would Salah want to leave” comments now. This thing may disappear or may snowball but it’s a known fact that he wants to go RM, if they had accepted the terms that his agent asked for (agreed by MS), he would already be playing for them. There is a fear that he missed the boat by asking for things that would not be granted and his team when back with a different set of terms.

At this stage he’s not going anywhere and it may seem absurd that any player would want to leave us at this current stage but we need to accept that he wants to go to Madrid and it’s only them stopping it from happening at the moment. I guess the only question I would like to know from Eds (as it’s one that I don’t think has been covered) is, have his agents approached any other clubs or has there been any signs that his desire to leave is anything other than to Madrid. That may (or may not) put it in to perspective that it’s “him and not us” as I get how the thought of any player looking to “upgrade” brings a level of butt hurt to fans.

If he has been looking at anywhere other than his “dream” then it’s a totally different situation and one that the club will be way ahead of in preparation for a sudden shift.

I think we got to realise with Salah, that he grew up in Egypt, during a time where Liverpool were not the dominant force in world football. id hate to see him go, but deep down i can understand his desire to play for the team he idolised. he's not trying to get out for any old team, he's following a lifelong dream. il prob get slated for this but im trying to put a non bias angle on this. were fans, and we love our club, he's an Employee. i hope we keep him, really, but i don't want to hate on him if all he wants is to fulfill his ambitions, wrongly or rightly.

16 Jun 2019 01:13:24
We all as fans would give everything to play for Liverpool, the ultimate dream. We can never grasp why others might want out, even when we were struggling we always had this confusion. How the likes of Torres will never be loved by other fans like we love him etc. Fact is we are red fans, these players aren't. We are strong as ever right now but Madrid are still Madrid. It's the pinnacle move for ever player in the game.

Well to be fair they update whenever they have. What else do you want, there's not a live update of continuous truthful info available. Id much rather hear only one piece of fact truth every 2 weeks as opposed to tabloids spouting 20 false info daily.

Maybe if you spent some time reading the articles he writes, you might be able to gain some knowledge on players strengths, personality, etc so you can make your own judgements on realistic and unrealistic options, instead of wanting regular updates. If no new information is available. This site would lose all interest to me if only questions could be asked and answered repeatedly without any learning about players and club's within the game.

Grino, he was slow to get started last season, didn't really show his best form until after the turn of the year, but played very well down the stretch.

It's hard to judge wingers in Scottish football and how they'll do with the English game because we just don't have the athleticism in the league that English teams do, especially in defense. A pacy winger always looks good in Scotland because they can outpace most defenses, whereas up against a Trent or a Wan-Bissaka, he'd probably get burned for pace.

In short, good season, but needs proving at a higher level still.

I'm not sure how people struggle with this so much. We messed around Lyon on price because of his injury. Here we are now a year later, he's had an up and down year (probably because of the collapsed move, which happened after he'd already done his interview! ), he's got one year left on his contract so presumably the club now think they can get him a more realistic price given his "issues".

Agree15 2Disagree

13 Jun 2019 20:22:38
In my opinion and understanding (eds please correct me if I’m wrong) Liverpool were right to ask for a lower fee. Full medical details should be provided by the selling club. During a medical they spotted a knee injury they weren’t told about. Hear it all the time in reference but - if you bought a car and the past owner hadn’t told you the head gasket was on the way out you’d return it or ask for a lower price, no? Also ups nd down season? 9 goals 7 assists? And a decent champions league. He’d be a great addition. But I do wonder what that means for Keïta or Ox.

Midfielders;
Milner
Lallana
Ox
Keïta
Wijnaldum
Fabinho
Henderson
Grujic

This isn’t a dig Ed25 but I honestly can’t think of 1 Everton player that’s as good as Lallana at his best. He was England’s best player a couple of years ago mate.

I don’t see any of those players being better than Lallana I’m afraid Ed. Unless your glasses are tinted blue.
A couple of years ago Lallana had started to score some goals for club and country and was easily England’s best player. I can’t believe you would deny that. Some people have very short memories I suppose.
Bottom line, Everton could do with his quality right now because there not much quality anywhere else in the squad ;-)

Hey Eds n Reds, can any of you advise as to whether Roma have formally registered any interest with us for Karius?

A story from Fontomac in Italy is listed on the Echo news feed for today.

As a follow up, are the terms of Kariius's loan deal with Besiktas such that it can be broken by us (if we get an offer for his permanent placement, for example)?

Thank you!

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - If Roma are interested they need to speak with Besiktas and Liverpool. The loan could potentially be bought out. Roma has a failing goalkeeper and interest in replacing him and have to my knowledge three goalkeepers on their list - not including Karius. They also have a new coach but there is a strong chance of a significant change happening there which may put everything on hold for a short-while.}
