Hi Eds, just wonder your thoughts on missing out on Werner yet ending up with Jota? I was one of those dissapointed we missed Werner and underwhelmed when we bought Jota (so what do I know) but now I'm gobsmacked how good Jota is and how instantly he's slotted in and now can't for the life of me see how Werner would have fitted in (unless we changed the way we play) . Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Jota was way down the list and was only purchased as he was available for a small deposit and payments spread out - but it has worked out well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Dare I say it, I think Werner is turning out pretty average.

24 Nov 2020 20:57:39
To be honest I’ve always liked Jota! So when I found he was coming I knew he’d fit like a glove.

24 Nov 2020 20:59:39
Werner is a top player but Jota, regardless of how far down list he may have been, has had a brilliant start. Long may it continue.

24 Nov 2020 21:56:09
How far down the list was Salah. Its great the klopp can make it work, who thought Robertson would turn out as good as he did. As so many of you say in klopp we trust.

24 Nov 2020 22:03:22
No way Ed002 that's unreal mate. I wonder how many players were way down the list yet worked out well? Isn't Salah and Alison on that list?

{Ed002's Note - yes, Salah was 4th on the list and Alisson second.}

24 Nov 2020 22:41:45
Alison was behind Oblak wasn’t he Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

25 Nov 2020 01:02:01
Clearly some impressive lists being made.

25 Nov 2020 05:07:18
Never recruit the No. 1 on your list! That's Edwards's secret recipe! I believe you, Ed002, that Jota couldn't have been top of our list. But what an introduction to the team!

25 Nov 2020 10:12:18
Klopp and Edwards have bought a team of rejects, they'll never win anything🤣. Without doubt, the best manager for improving players in the game.

25 Nov 2020 10:15:45
Salah was behind Brandt (first choice) and Dia Keita Balde, as much as I know. Don't know who the 3rd choice was and prolly Ed02 can help me here. Ed02, can you name a few of the options ahead of Jota just for fun, pls?

As for Werner, he is a top player and brilliant forward BUT the guy missies way too many chances and sitters. At the weekend, he was dreadful in front of goal and vs Rennes last night, he missed another sitter, as well. I think based on current form, we got the better deal from a goal conversion stand point. Long may it continue.

{Ed002's Note - Werner, Sarr, Traore.}

25 Nov 2020 11:48:52
How comes we didn’t continue with Werner Ed.
Seemed a given at one point with the issues that Koop caused himself to have.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea were talking to him with the permission of his club and negotiated a transfer whereas the illegal approach by Klopp was not supported with any offer as the club did not have the money.}

25 Nov 2020 12:40:56
Thanks, ED02. I did not think there were any legs to the Traore links as I do not rate him but now I know, he was actually being considered.

{Ed002's Note - Wolves would not sell Traore in installments as Liverpool wanted. Perhaps they can strike a deal for next summer as a Salah replacement?}

25 Nov 2020 13:15:07
Salah off somewhere Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Players come and go and Liverpool need to start to look to moving forward. The difficulty will be finding a buyer.}

25 Nov 2020 13:30:05
Because of his stupid wage demands Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest in him at this time - Real Madrid have a very clear plan. Barcelona have other ideas and will be working within a revised wage structure. Options soon run out.

25 Nov 2020 14:10:08
I think werner looks really good. He'd probably look even better in our squad but that boats gone and I'm more than happy with jota.

25 Nov 2020 14:10:38
Salahs here for the long haul, no club is going to give what we would want at his age and sure why would he want to leave the best squad and manager in europe?

25 Nov 2020 15:21:32
Ed002, if Salah were to go, would someone like Haaland or Sancho be too unrealistic for us?

Would it be more of the Adama Traore/ Harvey Barnes ilk?

{Ed002's Note - It would be what Klopp wants and he has been lusting after Sarr and Traore.}

25 Nov 2020 16:12:45
Thanks Ed.

As exciting a signing of the like of Sancho or Haaland would be, I fully trust Klopp to turn almost any player into a player of their bracket.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}
