Ed001 hope your well mate, what's your take on the Gomez injury, you still think we can mount a challenge this season without our 2 best starting centre backs? This meaning Matip will have to play nearly every game? You expect us to try and sign one in Jan?

{Ed001's Note - of course we can still mount a challenge, everybody is suffering badly with injuries. Yes, I would expect an attempt to get one in Jan anyway before this happened. The only thing this might change, if it is a bad one, is to see us look to the free agent market to bring in cover ie someone like Garay.}

Also I’m thinking Fabinho and Thiago should be back after the international break mate?

11 Nov 2020 20:25:46
Do u think Garay could fill a gap Ed? I don’t know him or ever seen him? I’m not slating the young lads but they are still to raw for me!

{Ed001's Note - it was not so long ago Man Utd wanted him and he was seen as a top class centre-back. Not sure now he is 34 if he is still up to the mark, but an experienced head could be very useful right now.}

Ok mate cheers, you always manage to cheer me up a little lol I think we are really suffering at the minute with bloody injuries. Can we do that the. Bring in a free agent?

{Ed001's Note - yes, we removed van Dijk from the squad, so there is a space for one player. Which is exactly why it was done.}

11 Nov 2020 20:37:46
Who Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - Ezequiel Garay, Argentine centre-back. Was just the only free agent centre-back I know of, hence mentioning him.}

11 Nov 2020 23:02:18
Oh ok thanks I never heard of him mate.

Ed, when you say you expect us to attempt to sign a defender in January, do you think this could be an ‘expensive’, long-term option?

12 Nov 2020 06:28:49
So we could well see 2 CB’s arriving if it’s a season wonder for Joe, a free agent and also a new signing in Jan.

I don't know, I'm of a completely different opinion. I don't want us to sign a cb in January. Don't get me wrong if we did I'm not going to be gutted or anything but I don't think we need one, I really don't. This is the perfect time for the youngsters to shine, God knows they deserve their chances, this is their chance to show what they've got. By buying another CB in January is basically saying a big up yours to the young lads who look very promising and we'll end up losing them next year, give them their chance! This isn't as bad as people are making out, or in my opinion it's not.

For the eds. Would Kabak be an option if liverpool were to include a player Swap, someone like Origi. Or do they just need cash there? If so could Origi be sold to fund a move for him. While I'm all for showing faith in the youth. Are they going to handle the big stage. And if they don't, and have a few bad games then how detrimental would that be to their career longterm?

{Ed002's Note - Ozan Kabak (CB) has been of past interest to both Manchester sides, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich but the asking price has always been see as high, although it seemed to be something between €35M and €40M it could have reduced due to the pandemic and Schalke having financial issues. The interest of the Manchester sides when he left Galatasaray for Stuttgart and he hit an age where he could never qualify as Home Grown in England - and that is something Liverpool should concern themselves with as well. I am not so sure he is the starter Liverpool have been looking for, but he will be cheaper than both Llorente and Diego Carlos and could still push Joe Gomez in to the background. He is well thought of by Borussia Dortmund who wanted Tanguy Kouassi as a replacement for Toprak and Belardi but he moved to Bayern Munich resulting in their making an approach and being told he is not for sale - but they have declared an interest. Schalke say they have also been approached by Juventus and Leicester. A far better option for Liverpool than Mandi but Schalke, who were reluctant to sell, but will now let him leave after his five game ban and the huge backlash there has been over him spitting at an opponent from Werder Bremen at the time of the pandemic. A foul human being. Origi does not figure in this.}

I know we have room for Garay since removing van Dijk from the PL squad, but surely by the time he's match fit it'll nearly be January anyway?
