A speculative question please Ed, but one not without some level of possibility given what we know from past events and let's say, personal career desires.

Should Mohammed Salah decide that he wanted to leave the club this summer, and a buyer was found. Who, in your opinion and using your knowledge of the potentially available players in the world and also expected movements for players already in advanced stages (to take those out of the equation in this scenario), would be the best replacement?

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that there is no viable buyer at this time. vast efforts have been put in to trying to be the new Real Madrid poster boy, but they have money issues and will take Mbappe in that role next summer. A suitable replacement would be the likes of Sancho or Torres - but that isn’t happening. Liverpool have a potentially huge talent in Elliott if managed properly and that should be a two year deal to ease him in to more game time.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Literally would be the best case scenario for lfc if Elliot could be well managed into the role before salah leaves. A lfc fan and talented Elliot Jones Trent and Gomez could really be a core of players.

Big ask like but I’d like to think Elliot will get more game time next year.

{Ed002's Note - Not a great deal more because of his age and the rules regarding schooling etc. His time will come.}

Thanks Ed, I know you aren't a fan of those type of finger in the air questions so I appreciate the answer.

I'm sure it is a situation that the club have theorised and considered, so asking you gets us as close to their thinking as we will ever get.

It does feel like we have been in a season after season holding pattern with Mo but it sounds like we are getting the best out of him that we can, for longer than we could have should things had worked out differently, and we can't ask more than that.

Do we get to hear the outcome of the tribunal and final figure, or is it sealed etc due to his age? Are there any similar previous cases or precedents that Indicade what we can expect?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have a history of stepping back from tribunals. Because of his age it will be a payment plus perhaps an additional payment if he were to get a full additional cap.}

I do hope we don't try to play silly with Fulham over elliot and make ourselves look like a holes.

£750k was a low ball offer, quite embarrassing really. In reality, and if there was a price on potential, we shouldn’t be moaning if it ends up around the £8 mil that they settled on in the Ings case.

Thanks again Ed and have a good weekend.

Ed02 is a fountain of football knowledge, but that's a hard one for anyone to answer.

3/ 4 years ago, who would've said when asked about Liverpool's next potential goal scorer, mo salah's your man? . There are loads of great footballers out there who just need the right atmosphere and right tactician and right manager to get the best out of them. This works in reverse too. Players with big reputations can move to the wrong club at the wrong time and struggle ie Fernando morientes.

If salah leaves (which I think would be a massive mistake for him, really do) I feel confident of klopp and Co finding the right player. Just coz werner ain't joining, doesn't mean there isn't a hidden gem out there.

I agree Ed002. Elliot is the future and he has to be managed well for his talent to shine.
Would you think that a loan will aid him or do harm.

01 Aug 2020 08:36:06
You say Ed002 that if Eliott is managed properly then there is potential so who better to manage a young lad then JK.

{Ed002's Note - You have to remember he is a youngster who will be playing below the first team most of the time.}

01 Aug 2020 10:48:48
Well hopefully he'll come good but he's in good hands anyway.

He's still a kid isn't he. Remember what you were like at that age guys 😂 Be fun to watch his development tho.
