Ed002 massively disappointed with Salah's behaviour and public hissy fit with Klopp - that ain't the Liverpool way! David Ornstein has stated today that Salah has no intention of leaving and intends fulfilling his contract so (1) Is that your understanding and (2) Why would the hierarchy even consider letting him run out his contract and leave for nothing- complete commercial suicide imo? If we could get circa £80 mill this summer and offload Nunez as well (possibly for a loss admittedly) do you think we could go balls out for Isak, especially when looking at his amazing stats and Edwards reported enthusiasm? TIA.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure that Liverpool would be keen on Salah running down his contract so he can leave as a Free Agent and there is interest from Michael Emanalo. I think the figure you suggest is not too far from what Liverpool could get for him, but the time has arrived to move on.

Darwin Nunez was a Jurgan Klopp buy and he could well depart - Liverpool would have to accept losing a significant amount of money on him. Finding a buyer may not be easy for his agent.

Alexander Isak (S) Newcastle have no intention of selling Isak but it is likely either Isak or Bruno Guimaraes may need to be sold to stay on the right side of the line for financial reasons. Barcelona see him as a potential Lewandowski replacement. Down the list of targets for Arsenal but Spurs may offer a solution. I am not aware of any Liverpool interest.}

Agreed Salah should go as he is rapidly diminishing and still holds some value even with 1 year left on his contract.
Not ready yet to give up on Nunez though. New coach and style of play incoming hopefully so he deserves at least 1 season to show his worth to the new management. I personally love the kid. Not his fault the team have been awful recently.

29 Apr 2024 19:27:32
Ed02 - apologies if you’ve been asked this before but have you any feeling which attacking options Liverpool have a realistic chance of signing, especially if Salah and Nunez depart. Just feels it’s not quite worked out for Nunez despite being talented, he’s not prolific enough for a title chasing side.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans to replace Nunez at this time. I listed the potential Salah replacements a few days ago.}

29 Apr 2024 19:50:57
Ed, Given Richard Hughes experience working within Italy, do you see any potential that LFC could look at Osimhen as a Nunez replacement?

{Ed002's Note - No, I don’t see there is any chance.}

29 Apr 2024 20:09:44
Appreciate the insight! Have a great rest of your day.

29 Apr 2024 20:15:46
I personally would like Nunez stay and moved to the wing. From what I have heard about Slot, he likes his wingers. I think Nunez could do well and think he could cause some trouble and playing in a more prolific central striker.

29 Apr 2024 21:33:44
I don’t think a new style of play benefits Nunez the current style of play provides him a ridiculous amount of chances he just doesn’t take them.

29 Apr 2024 21:55:43
Have to admit that wasn’t a very inspiring list of potential Salah replacements if those are who we’re looking at (and it was a long list) It’s like downgrading from a vintage Dom Perignon to a three litre bottle of white lightning.

29 Apr 2024 22:22:18
Even if Nunez does stay, if a player like Isak is available you should be interested.

My only concern with that lad is his injury record, otherwise he’s a class act.

{Ed002's Note - Others are interested in Isai but not Liverpool at this time.}

29 Apr 2024 22:34:04
SA I have to disagree with your comment on Nunez mate - he'll never make a central striker whilst he's got a hole in his arse! He is at best a Bobby F 3rd rate replacement! Kills me to say it but 2 years in PL is plenty of time to acclimatise to its pace and physicality but the poor lad has no touch and no composure and if we want to compete with City and Arsenal again next season we need a striker of Isak's stats. The "if they score 3, we score 4" is a country mile away with what we have currently.

29 Apr 2024 23:45:41
If Bruno is available we should definitely be in that conversation even at the quotes £100m, excellent player and an upgrade on any of our midfield, that signing would be transformative and akin to Arsenal signing Rice. Unfortunately I think priority may be elsewhere with our backline needing investment and worse still if Salah does leave and needs to be replaced!

If Nunez stays you will be eating your words Shultzy.

Honestly the amount of people who write a player off because of a run of poor form is crazy. Instead of thinking of the goals he hasn’t scored you should look at the goals he has scored and see that as his potential.

He will be a seriously top striker somewhere, I just hope the media witch hunt and short sighted fans don’t force him out of Liverpool because we’ll regret it.

30 Apr 2024 01:57:20
Nunez stays for me, I believe he'd be good under a different regime. Time will tell of course but fingers crossed for him, he tries his best.

30 Apr 2024 07:41:21
Hi Schultzy, sorry my post wasn't that clear, long day. I love Nunez but for me he's not a central striker he's somebody who plays off the striker or as a winger.

I think he would be brilliant on the wing. He runs non stop, so hard working, he's like a bulldozer.

Him on one wing with a prolific striker in the middle and either Szob, Diaz, Salah or even Gakpo or another signing on the other wing could do well.

30 Apr 2024 08:08:24
The club have shown in the past they do not like letting players go for less than what they believe their value to be.

Often this has been to our detriment, holding onto surplus players for too long rather than cashing in for what we can and saving on wages.

I don’t see that changing.

Therefore I think Nunez will stay. Salah will likely go (agree with Ed002 that the time has come) despite what the club is supposedly feeding the media about him staying.

I think some fans will be disappointed that there won’t be this big overhaul of players in the summer that some are expecting.

30 Apr 2024 08:23:34
It’s up to FSG if they want to do that Navy. But can’t say we haven’t been here before. Like when we needed centre backs in 20/ 21, and then just about scraped home in 3rd having been top of the table at the turn of the year, or in 22/ 23 where it was clear that we needed to refresh the midfield and move on the likes of Keita, Thiago, Fabinho and Henderson, only to then end up in 5th and completely drop out of the champions league places. If we choose to stand still while the competition strengthens then we will fall behind.

30 Apr 2024 09:50:25
As others have said so eloquently, Nunez is not a good enough finisher to play centrally for a top team. Yes he's scored some decent goals but he can't be relied upon to take chances and that ultimately costs us.
Salah staying should be taken with a pinch of salt, I believe he's off and both his agent and the club are putting out rumors that he might stay to get more money.

30 Apr 2024 12:01:28
Sorry Salah but don't see how a different regime makes Darwin take these chances. I like the lad but that's just making excuses for him.

30 Apr 2024 13:05:58
Finishing is as much confidence and comfortability as it is technique. Ian Wright spoke about having confidence and visualizing a goal was what helped him score.

I think the point around playing to Darwin’s strengths hits on something we’ve mostly recognised in him. It’s that he is instinctual and better when he can direct and quick. Part of that is putting him in positions to just be him on the pitch and start the game from a position of strength. I think it would make a difference.

30 Apr 2024 14:13:10
I have no idea if he'll ever hit his potential but it's not like the market is full of alternatives. We have more pressing matters regarding transfers, like CB and LB. I'm optimistic he can kick on under the new regime.

30 Apr 2024 15:15:37
Beckers Pecker and SA - healthy debate from all sides is always a good thing AND I would love to be proved wrong regarding Darwin! I love his work ethic and commitment and really like the lad but my fear, and this is purely a personal opinion, is that if we go into next season with Mo and Darwin as our predominant goal source we will be left behind again! Diaz (who I desperately hope we keep as he's been the one positive since the Manure FA Cup debacle and subsequent on-field capitulation across all competitions) is invaluable in that attacking rebuild. I'm still trying to fathom how "sell Salah for circa £80 mill this summer or let him walk for sweet F A as a free next" isn't obvious to one-and-all?! I don't profess to be a financial genius but that is complete commercial suicide so I'm hoping robbos_back_pocket "both his agent and the club are putting out rumors that he might stay to get more money" proves to be prophetic.

30 Apr 2024 18:45:21
You know what the weirdest thing with Nunez is - he gets slated for his finishing but is easily a better goal scorer than Bobby. Bobby gets plaudits for his team play being his biggest strength but Nunez is getting more assists than he ever did. Now I'm not going to be a hypocrite and not say Nunez's all round game cannot improve when it clearly can, whilst also slating Salah for his all round game being awful. Someone above said Nunez was a third rate Bobby F replacement, but he's actually performing better than him. 18 goals and 13 assists so far this season. Not bad considering most people want him gone. It's the Jota syndrome all over again. I'm backing Nunez to make everyone on here slating him change their username.

30 Apr 2024 21:19:22
As Klopp said, certain aspects of a players game can be improved with coaching, whilst others can't. The question is, does Nunez have the temperament to kick on and become world class, which has to involve taking chances against the top sides. We have not faired so well against the top sides this season, whilst peak Bobby, Mo and Mane could score against anyone.
I am not adverse to us bringing in a CF to put pressure on Darwin. He is a darling of the Kop, and in some ways, deservedly so, but also has a long way to go to ever be considered as great as Bobby, Mo and Mane are/ were.

30 Apr 2024 22:28:11
If we go to a 4-2-3-1 under Slot, I don’t see where Nunez gets into the team to be honest. His position is either wide left in the 3 or he is the 1 upfront and I think we already have better overall options for both of those spots, imho.

30 Apr 2024 19:25:16
All good debate, but I'm interested in the "balls out" approach to transfer negotiation. New one on me.

Ed002, with you seemingly saying that isn't going to work, what strategy would you suggest? Tone it down a bit? Maybe just flash a little upper thigh?

{Ed002's Note - It is still a problem when Edwards takes the bus to Newcastle for the meeting.}

01 May 2024 16:40:04
As Salah has only one year left in his contract surely the ball is in his court and LFC have left it too late to have much say on if Salah goes or stays. He can just sit on his contract, wait to move for free and very little LFC can do about it. I only see him moving if Real Madrid (not happening) or PSG come in for him.
