Sheffield Utd reported agreed a few for Brewster.


1.) 16 Sep 2020 10:37:03
If he does get sold, the fee needs to go towards some kind of forward player to give our front three competition for places.

{Ed025's Note - i think your right snoots, an injury to salah or mane and your up the creek without a paddle mate..

2.) 16 Sep 2020 10:40:30
I for one am not happy selling him. We don't know what level he can reach and from what little we have seen he has the potential to reach the top.

With all the games we have going on he will definitely have opportunities to perform.

Klopp must have something up his sleeve if he is happy letting him go.

{Ed025's Note - i expect there will be a buyback clause CM..

3.) 16 Sep 2020 10:47:39
Ed025, if he ended up performing surely a lot of clubs would be interested. why would he want to return to a club who sold him?

{Ed025's Note - because liverpool have invested in his future CM, he will want to come back and this could be a great learning curve for him win..

4.) 16 Sep 2020 10:48:55
25, if we still have origi then the 6 points he'll secure us vs your lot might be crucial mate :D.

{Ed025's Note - divock is, and will always be a last gasp option faith, and we are a lot stronger now so dont bank on that mate.. :)

5.) 16 Sep 2020 10:53:18
If there is a buy back clause who is to say he might not want to come back?, feels like he is not being given confidence or trust too perform on the pitch in a red shirt .

{Ed025's Note - he needs game time hailstones, hes not going to get a chance at liverpool just now but if he progresses he will want to return..who would,nt?..

6.) 16 Sep 2020 11:00:30
I hope you're right Ed.

Hopefully Klopp brings in someone special as a replacement regardless!

7.) 16 Sep 2020 11:19:44
Who "special" is going to want to come in as back up?

8.) 16 Sep 2020 11:30:45
Rashica would be my pick but don't think we have any interest.

9.) 16 Sep 2020 11:38:26
Oh Mane Mane-- There have been a few purchases we've made over the years that have not exactly got fans excited and turned out to be special. I am sure Klopp can overtime do it again despite limited game time for whoever is bought in.

10.) 16 Sep 2020 11:53:35
More like Liverpool have invested in the money in a Center Midfielder.

{Ed025's Note - yeah klopp wants thiago harry..

11.) 16 Sep 2020 12:04:47
Of course, Ed025 everyone knows it except a few who are adamant that we don't need to add any more. He is a world-class center mid who is inside the top 3 best midfielders in Europe. Who in their right mind wouldn't want him? The guy will control the tempo of the match like the captain of a gigantic ship. I can't wait to see him and Keita on the same team. That's better than what Manchester city has today.

{Ed025's Note - if i was picking the side harry naby would be nowhere near it to be honest mate,,

12.) 16 Sep 2020 12:09:51
Why are u being nice towards liverpool ed your worrying me hahaha.

{Ed025's Note - im always nice hailstones.. :)

13.) 16 Sep 2020 12:32:53
Stoked for the lad, he needs to be playing at this stage of his career especially considering how short football careers are. He will become a bona-fide star, but thems the apples. Ed25, you are giving some short shrift to our other talented forwards. Shakira, the OX and Minamino could surely cover if mane is out for whatever reason.

{Ed025's Note - thats like saying if alisson gets injured you could always get joe hart on loan IAC, the back ups for liverpool are pretty poor in my estimation but if they float your boat mate who am i to rain on your parade..

14.) 16 Sep 2020 12:44:50
not many would mind Shakira as cover.

{Ed025's Note - not if your fleetwood town no..

15.) 16 Sep 2020 13:27:17
Can see us getting Daka also (and playing more like Bayern in some games, 4-2-4- heavy metal) AS WELL as Thiago and a CB.
No way none of Wilson, Grujic, Div, Shaq will sell.

16.) 16 Sep 2020 14:54:31
I think minamino will surprise a few people, we started to see a glimps of his talent during pre season. I also think AOC is better in midfield so I give you that. Shakira can be effective out on the right, when fit!

But I concede that they are not mane quality, albeit a question mark on minamino, s ability to become as good as him.

17.) 16 Sep 2020 14:20:04
To be fair ed025, on paper, our cover for the front 3 over the last 3 years were hardly amazing but they always pulled it put of the bag. Takes me back to the 80s, when cover for the first eleven was hardly anything to write home about but they did a job playing in the right system. Same with some of United periods under Fergie.

{Ed025's Note - you could be right john..

18.) 16 Sep 2020 23:20:12
Just got in from an exhausting game trying to defend against a 2/ 3/ 4 man overload, so hadn't heard the Brewster news until now.
I'll be sorry to lose him but yeah, with Origi seemingly happy to warm the bench Brewster's gametime would be extremely limited.
So okay, sell him now and buy him back when Firmino finally runs himself into the ground (in 2051).
I agree we need and will probably sign an exciting forward option though, so looking forward to seeing Player X on the teamsheet.

19.) 16 Sep 2020 23:28:07
Oh and btw it's a goalscorer that Sheffield United are most in need of, having watched them a bit lately. So it does look a god fit. He'll go there and bang in 20 a season, get a bit of Europa League experience and then come back to do it for us and in the Champions League. Why not? He's 20.



10 Sep 2020 20:11:05
Sly are running with the story that Gini has held positive talks with Klopp and is set to stay. Obviously don't take much notice with what they have to say but hopefully might be correct for once.


1.) 10 Sep 2020 20:24:27
Maybe Eds2 knows?

{Ed002's Note - Sorry.}

2.) 10 Sep 2020 21:26:16
Didn’t read he’s set to stay?
Positive talks maybe they are both agreeing that he leave or stays no one knows especially not sly!

3.) 10 Sep 2020 22:29:48
I definitely hope that Gini stays.
It was so surprising to me that it was looking like he’d leave in the first place.
Even better if Thiago joins as well.
That’d give everyone a real lift I think.
But, yeah, get Gini signed up again please.



09 Sep 2020 22:49:31
Ed's if Brewster were to be sold would the club look to replace him?


{Ed002's Note - I would not think so.}

1.) 09 Sep 2020 23:00:02
Ed002 would you say the funds would go towards other players of interest for example Sarr or Thiago or would you still think a player in their position like Shaqiri or Wijnaldum still need to go before that? Klopps comments today, although can’t be taken as gospel, seem to suggest we might not be in the market for anyone else.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool don’t have the money to make the wanted signings. Klopp has his favourites like Thiago and Carlos, and has had his tongue down the throats of Traore and Sarr. I still think something may well happen and as I have said the club can probably find a little money to help out. The asking price for sales is scaring off buyers - an offer for Wilson at £12M was rejected and £20M demanded - so it is rather a Catch-22 situation right now.}

2.) 09 Sep 2020 23:14:01
Brewster is an option to replace Origi in my opinion, but i don't see the logic in replacing him seeing as he played about 2 games for us last season.

We have lots of young strikers anyway. Joe Hardy, Paul Glatzel, Layton Stewart etc. So if we need someone to play a couple of Carabao cup games we could just give one of them the opportunity.

3.) 09 Sep 2020 23:21:34
Seems ludicrous to turn down that bid for Wilson in the current climate. Who were the interested side if you don't mind me asking Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Aston Villa but it was way below what the club want.}

4.) 09 Sep 2020 23:44:46
I think £20M is a very reasonable price for Harry Wilson even in the current market.

{Ed025's Note - have you seen him sean?, very good at set pieces....and thats it, if it was like american football and you could just bring him on for his kicking then hes the very man, unfortunately you cant and the rest of his game is gash mate..

5.) 09 Sep 2020 23:57:32
You only have the ball at your feet for about 3 minutes in the 90. Wilson is unfortunately not good enough in the other 87. For £12m we should've bitten their hand off in my opinion.

6.) 10 Sep 2020 00:43:37
£12 million seems a bit low for Wilson whilst £20 million seems a little high. I’d say something around the £17 million mark seems about right.

7.) 10 Sep 2020 01:14:56
I think Origi is set for a breakout season with us.

8.) 10 Sep 2020 03:44:21
I'd prefer Origi sold and hold onto Brewster.

9.) 10 Sep 2020 00:08:02
Hi Ed025, yes I have indeed seen him. His stats are good from his loan to the championship, nope didn't watch any of that but last season in the premier league for Bournemouth I saw a few of their games and highlights. I have seen enough of him to have an opinion on him.

Lovely left foot, great dead ball delivery and superb at direct free kicks. Happy to get on the ball, good control and passing (I don't mean cross field balls but tidy passing) . Relatively creative. Goals and assists are worth a lot and he has proven himself capable in that department.

Now the other side, why he doesn't have a long term future at Liverpool and why he is £20M (imo) rather than £35M. Off the ball looks a little lazy, not sure is it poor tactical discipline/ understanding on his part or lack of effort. This is by far his biggest flaw imo and is enough for him to not suit Liverpool. Fitness issues - don't think he has injury issues but he rarely plays 90mins. This may relate to his lack of effort defensively or him going missing in games.

He does still have the talent to score and create goals at premier league level. Should suit some team's formation surely.

{Ed025's Note - i think thats a pretty fair assessment sean, maybe he could do a job for one of the lower tier teams but as you say he would have to up his game i think mate..

10.) 10 Sep 2020 07:09:20
I agree Harveys Man Bun, 12m and a 20% sell on clause would have been a done deal for me.

11.) 10 Sep 2020 07:06:22
Cheers for reply’s Ed. If Gini and Brewster are sold, not that I am hoping they are but surely we will then have enough to bring in Thiago minimum. That would be both Gini and Lallana go in the CM area.

12.) 10 Sep 2020 08:06:39
12 million doesn't even get you a Nottingham Forest right back anymore. I think 20 million is more than reasonable.

13.) 10 Sep 2020 08:07:07
Wilson may get someone 10+ goals a season, but honestly looks to be championship level overall. 15m would be acceptable if i was playing championship manager.

14.) 10 Sep 2020 08:24:28
Ed002 thanks for the response. In your opinion would you expect Liverpool to potentially lower the asking price of players like Wilson, Shaqiri and Larouci who don’t seem to have any future or has there been no suggestion that this will happen, or the original interest gone. There is a while left in the window of course but surely we run the risk of being stuck with players who won’t he used or having to send them on loans again.

{Ed002's Note - The problem the club has is that there are simply not buyers out there at the prices being asked. The club need to make a decision whether to lower their expectations, keep them or let some leave on loan (which they very much wish to avoid). If there was an easy way to sell Shaqiri, Wilson and Grujic then Liverpool would have taken it - and now Brewster can be added to that list.}

15.) 10 Sep 2020 08:50:43
Ed002, do you think deals similar to the Ings sale, where we send a player on loan with an obligation to buy at the end of the loan period, would be a good solution?

{Ed002's Note - Yes it might be an option but clubs may resist making commitments that they don't know if they can keep next summer. And Liverpool want funds now.}

16.) 10 Sep 2020 09:20:24
Some of these fringe players are highly rated amongst Liverpool fans here. not sure why people are suggesting to lower the price.

{Ed025's Note - for the exact reasons you have stated tyrion, its only liverpool fans who really rate these fringe players mate..

17.) 10 Sep 2020 09:51:10
It's time for the club to lower their expectations. Maybe in another season, we could've bargained for higher prices, but most clubs are short of cash and can't afford to spend big money only for the signings to not work out. And it's not like the players we're trying to get rid of are key players or top quality either. If we continue holding out for higher prices, we're just going to be stuck with them and then what? We receive no cash, we have to use up more squad space, and they're probably not going to play much either. We'd also fail to strengthen with whatever money we could've brought in from the sales of Wilson, Grujic, Larouci etc.

{Ed025's Note - hard to argue with that mate..

18.) 10 Sep 2020 09:52:31
Ya I agree Ed025 no matter where he goes next he needs to up his effort levels, be less of a passenger and stay more involved throughout. At the moment he has flashes of brilliance and quality which could be critical to a lower team getting some points to try avoid relegation.

On the other hand he also has the quality to do well mid table level, if the right coach could up his work rate then wouldn't he add a bit of creativity to the likes of Sheff Utd. I wouldn't see Wilder willing to take that risk but would be interesting to see how it would work out.

19.) 10 Sep 2020 10:09:05
Ed25. Whilst your about, you must be happy with your new midfield, surely a cull of existing players is next? 😀.

{Ed025's Note - hopefully john, we have quite a lot of dutch elms there mate who need culling, im a lot happier than i was a month ago thats for sure..

20.) 10 Sep 2020 10:13:31
He he ED025. It's quite the same with every club. We are not in a strong position today and we aren't going to regret selling any one of them. Klopp wants new additions and we don't have money. Sell them reasonably. Not one single player is wanted by any top clubs says a lot about their level. I would sell every one of them and buy one top-class first team CB.

{Ed025's Note - if they are not going to figure much tyrion then you are dead right mate..

21.) 10 Sep 2020 10:08:24
Ed you mentioned Traore there as a player of interest, I would imagine he would cost a ridiculous amount of money would he not?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Wolves have FFP commitments that they must meet and would look for a very significant fee for Traore.}

22.) 10 Sep 2020 13:13:38
It seems like there is a lack of negotiation with us though are we playing such hard ball that clubs won’t even return with an offer, take Wilson for example we want 20 mil and rejected the first offer but no comeback.

It seems like we may be a difficult club to deal with and if we don’t sort it and shift the driftwood it’s going to create a major imbalance in the squad.

There is no way a group of players that aren't being played and are being priced out of a move are good for squad morale?

23.) 10 Sep 2020 13:36:38
If the striker Villa bought from the championship was bought at the price he was, one could kind of see why FSG see the value of Wilson as higher than 12-15m, after all he is a proven goal scorer in both the championship and the Prem.
Everyone seems to be going poker face, hoping that the other will fold and give in and i do expect to see more action come the end of the window when a little panic sets in.

{Ed002's Note - The owners don't assign values to the players.}

24.) 10 Sep 2020 14:21:01
To be fair, Weston, we didn't negotiate with Norwich for Jamal Lewis either. We got quoted a higher price, and promptly moved on to Tsimikas. Other clubs might be doing the same, although I suppose our conduct and the way we've dealt with others hasn't exactly endeared us to them either.

25.) 10 Sep 2020 17:47:56
Wilson's not worth 20 mil. Should be happy to get 15-16 which is reasonable.

{Ed025's Note - in this climate it may even be a little less than that JM..

26.) 10 Sep 2020 19:21:25
Yeah Ed25 there seem to be a lot of players moving for roughly their market value or slightly above. Except the likes of Fábio Silva of course with a big markup for his potential, but generally the huge inflated premium on players appears to have come down. So for a player Liverpool don't really want to keep I'd expect them to accept an offer of around 15m including add-ons and what-nots. It's not like he cost them anything and they already made 3.5mil in loan fees for him.

{Ed025's Note - its a fine balancing act for liverpool JM, if they want a player in then some of the fringe element will have to be sacrificed mate, that will free up some wages and open up a squad place for someone klopp really wants to be there..



01 Sep 2020 08:50:03
Morning all, Utd are in for Thiago now. I'm thinking he will go there tbh.


{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich have not spoken with Manchester United at this time - or indeed Liverpool.}

1.) 01 Sep 2020 09:01:23
Seems like we’re just facilitating good players to go to other top premier league clubs again.

2.) 01 Sep 2020 09:43:22
United just signed van de beek, have pogba, fernandes, fred and tied matic down to a new contract. They are stupid but not that stupid.

3.) 01 Sep 2020 10:18:28
And? As a club we've had ample time and opportunity to approach Bayern and get a deal done.

4.) 01 Sep 2020 10:27:32
This is beginning to look like the worst transfer window since that time we re-signed Steve Staunton on a free. The 20/ 21 season is going to be far harder than this one by the looks of it.

5.) 01 Sep 2020 10:46:29
Oh Mane Mane, there are a few more sofa's to search down the back of for lose change before we can make a bid.

6.) 01 Sep 2020 10:54:52
It's only a bad transfer window if you've got holes in the side to fix and you don't do anything about it. We still have all the key players that won this league and the CL over the last 2 seasons, without any notable departures apart from perhaps Lovren (not a starter) .

GK - sorted
Back 4 - we've have filled the gap that exists when Robbo is rested. so the main issue now is whether to get another CB, but we do have 3 decent starting CB's (arguable Lovren was 4th choice) and Fabinho can also play there if required
CM - Still as solid as ever with Fabinho, Hendo, Gini, Keita, Ox, Milner etc. but we need Keita to step up to add some creativity i feel
Attack - Still the best front 3 in the league IMO, although I do think they're lacking a bit of fluency of late. Minamino is looking better and better and Origi a capable deputy, but I still feel we lack a natural winger if Mane or Salah need resting.

If I had to pick 2 new players they'd be another CB just to avoid a potential injury crisis if Joe and Matip go down, and a wide forward like Sarr (we have lots of strikers but few natural wingers) . It's also arguable both of those options would have been sitting on the bench however, and may not even have been first sub if Matip and Minamino perform, so it's hardly a terrible window even if we don't go and get those positions sorted.

It'll be much tougher this year for sure, but you have to look at the spending in the context of the quality of the squad to begin with, not just who's bought who.

7.) 01 Sep 2020 11:18:53
We need a class CB SGRed. it's not even a debate anymore. All arsenal did was to attack through Neco and Gomez. Gomez will be ripped to shreds next season while Matip can't remains fit. If FGS wants their investment to sustain success then they need to fill the holes in the side.

8.) 01 Sep 2020 11:24:15
Anyone would think the window ends tomorrow. People need to stop being impatient and trust Klopp and his team to make the right decisions during the window.

9.) 01 Sep 2020 11:33:50
I'm presuming that Bayern are throwing United's name around in an attempt to hurry up Lpool? Not sure if that's a tactic that clubs employ but it would make sense.

{Ed002's Note - No, Bayern have not done that and have acted professionally throughout.}

10.) 01 Sep 2020 11:40:27
I didn't realise that was deemed as unprofessional. Christian Falk (head of Bild and SportBild) has said today that Lpool and Bayern are in talks, any truth or are they still yet to contact? This is one long transfer saga.

{Ed002's Note - If that is the case the talks would have been started yesterday or today - as of Sunday night there were none.}

11.) 01 Sep 2020 11:56:05
Thanks Ed002, for the info. Horrible thinking there's still 39 days left of the window, good luck!

12.) 01 Sep 2020 13:22:53
SGred, exactly, some sense. we don't need to go and buy top players because we already have a squad of them. Chelsea have done so because they needed to, and must not actually trust in the youth that done well for them last year. Signing back ups in case so and so gets injured is pointless. We already have players sitting on the bench not getting games, and young players wanting a chance. We don't need to replace any 1st team players and the window is open for ages yet to get one or 2 in to improve the squad. and that's taking it that some of Shaq, Origi, Brewster, Elliot, Grujic, Philips aren't staying around.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are still happy with the youth. They have purchased replacements for senior players not youth players.}

13.) 01 Sep 2020 13:26:20
Ed002 have any clubs officially enquired about Gini as far as you know? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, not as far as I know.}

14.) 01 Sep 2020 14:10:49
Mental to think we demanded 20 mill for Solanke and turn our nose up at just just over for Thiago.

15.) 01 Sep 2020 14:15:33
Does no one else think that spending £25-35m on a player who can pre-sign for free in 5 months is crazy from a business perspective. that's not to say I agree with tapping the player up and if we have done that then we should face the consequences, and pay up. We do seem a bit too savy regarding signings to be spending money we do not have.

16.) 01 Sep 2020 14:48:57
I'm sure he would then demand a massive signing on fee and his agent will also demand a massive fee.

17.) 01 Sep 2020 14:49:13
Omegathree We spent 40 on Ox in the same situation mate.

18.) 01 Sep 2020 14:49:51
Same as Gini, why would anyone pay any money when he can do a Can. So looks like we are in a chicken and Egg situation.

19.) 01 Sep 2020 14:54:22
Omega the player sold his house he wants out of Munich! U think he’s going to wait around a few months for LFC for it then not to happen! A footballers career is very very short!

Sg I see your point but let’s be honest keita ox maybe hendo are made of glass.
Milner is getting on a bit.

Our front 3 have been lucky with injuries and are unchallenged for there spots even a bad mane or Salah starts ahead of origi Brewster and mini!

And we’ve 3cbs one that’s a colossal, one still young and raw then another who’s made of glass!
Nobody is sayin break the bank but while on top let’s stay there a few addition keep lads on their toes and keep it fresh! Thiago is better then any of our Mids at what he does!

20.) 01 Sep 2020 15:35:27
Eds, how have Liverpool been quoted a price for Thiago having not spoken with the club? Has this gone through his agent?

{Ed002's Note - I am not with you. See above.}

21.) 01 Sep 2020 17:51:46
Gomez is a poor CH now? Sweet jesus 5 months ago the same idiots were calling him the best English CH around. I despair.

22.) 01 Sep 2020 20:09:17
Reading these pages, it's easy understanding why they created diapers for adults. That's all I have to say.

23.) 01 Sep 2020 21:33:56
I genuinely cannot believe some of the comments made on here sometimes.

{Ed047's Note - I don’t think there’s a club in the country that wouldn’t die to have a back four of TAA, Gomez, VVD and Robbo and come to that Europe too.

Why are some almost panic stricken? 🤷‍♂️

24.) 02 Sep 2020 01:20:45
answer to any question about why is there panic - because it's liverpool fans

regards Thiago, I am ok with whatever price if we think he is the right player. but not if we're going to add him to a pool of 8 CMs already in the first team.

25.) 02 Sep 2020 00:58:19
It’s the same every transfer window Ed47. People think they are playing a computer game and so think the only way to win is to go out and buy shiny new players. Heaven forbid we end up with a team that only won the league by 18pts last season and won the CL before that!

Didn’t they all say the same last season when we only signed a couple of kids? We all know how that turned out.

I quite like the tactic of only signing players that are better than those you already have. It seems like common sense to me. The problem is when you have a team as good as ours it’s very hard to find players to improve it.

{Ed047's Note - and I don’t think you’ve yet to see the best of Naby and Minamino.

26.) 02 Sep 2020 07:18:59
TL- Gomez will be ripped to shreds next season? What makes you think that? He’s never been ripped to shreds in any previous seasons and would have probably got in the team of the year last year without injury.

27.) 02 Sep 2020 10:08:40
Warmachine - Barcelona are rebuilding. Koeman knows him and he is an experienced player. There is every reason why they would want to get him now rather than wait a year.



11 Aug 2020 20:06:46
Agreement between Thiago and Lfc I'm reading but we still not contacted Bayern. I guess I will file this under the BS section then.


1.) 11 Aug 2020 20:37:49
Why is it BS?

2.) 11 Aug 2020 21:12:30
Because we never tap up players ;)

I believe we would have to break our wage structure to bring him in, which is unlikely.

4.) 11 Aug 2020 22:00:07
I'd love him top player.

5.) 11 Aug 2020 22:18:21
If it’s true he wants us there be know wage structure broken!
Anyway can't see this deal happening as Ed says we broke as fook.

6.) 11 Aug 2020 23:13:41
@Southern Red: The Ed-s have repeatedly informed us of the financial struggles of the club owing to CV and that it is highly likely that we wouldn't pay the transfer fee for someone potentially not having much of a resale value going forward. But your statement that acquiring him will break our wage structure is factually incorrect. We have always been told how high our wages are. I understand Thiago is currently paid 125k per week (if I were to trust the internet) and we paid Clyne c.80k per week all this while.

7.) 12 Aug 2020 00:29:25
Where are you getting 125k from? He’s on c€12m annually which works out about €240k pw.

Salah is on 200 as the highest currently. It doesn’t look likely.

{Ed0666's Note - This doesn’t make any sense at all from a financial perspective. I hope we don’t do an Arsenal.

8.) 12 Aug 2020 06:42:08
We are broke but still the biggest club in england.
We have players to sell. If we sell grujic and wislon and loose one of shaq/ origi/ gini suddenly people on here will demand to pay 60 million for carlos.
However the biggest problem with these signings as eds have eluded multiple times to is that they are not home grown. So we need to look at players over 21 with 3 domestic seasons under their belt.

That said Thiago is a world class marquee player if there was ever one. I will buy him. He adds a lot to our already fantastic but boring midfield however him being non HG makes little chance for this to happen.

I expect us to make atleast two more noteable signings this season though.

9.) 12 Aug 2020 06:44:38
If Thiago wants to join that much, above any other club, then surely he will fall into line and be on equal pay to our highest earners, but no more. Its not like he needs the money. Playing for JK and the reds has a value beyond anything that money can buy. Personally i think TA would be a world class signing .

10.) 12 Aug 2020 08:03:44
Why do people keep having the same conversation over and over again! It's getting boring for me, let alone the eds. have we got money? Why not? Are we going to buy Tiago? Blah blah blah. RTP or ask a different question, it's all been done to death now.

11.) 12 Aug 2020 08:08:58
If we’re going to splash out on an expensive player, wages wise or transfer fee, it doesn’t need to be a cm.

12.) 12 Aug 2020 09:34:50
The great Liverpool teams used to take in great players if they became available. IMO he is a brilliant player who would add something complex different to the team dynamic. Klopp keeps making small changes each season to make us less predictable. I for one hope this happens🤞.

13.) 12 Aug 2020 10:29:00
For those who want to sign him do ye think it would mean a change of formation or for him to take Fabinho's spot?

I know it's nice to have options of course but if bringing in someone on the highest wages in the club they cannot be an option or rotation, they would have to clearly be for the best 11.

I think Fabinho is brilliant and I think the wages would be too high that loads of players would want pay rises.

14.) 12 Aug 2020 10:45:25
It won't happen.

15.) 12 Aug 2020 11:00:14
I think it’s all about options. Different games may require different players. If we need to move the ball quickly then him and Naby in the same formation could allow us to attack quickly using different passing angles. I also think that Fabinho can play in front or alongside him if required. Also Milner probably has one year left at Liverpool so why not integrate Thiago in now.

16.) 12 Aug 2020 14:33:37
This will literally rumble on until we see him in Paris holding up a PSG shirt saying how much he’s always wanted to play for them and work with whichever manager they haven’t sacked yet.

Hi Ed001, just a week left until the close of the transfer window. Do you expect much activity outgoing and incoming? I'm thinking approx 3-4out and one more inwards in shape of a CB maybe?


{Ed001's Note - not much in, but we are still trying to offload a few.}



25 Sep 2020 16:13:56
Do you expect Grujic to be in the squad v Arsenal Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - yes, probably, if he can be. Klopp wants to keep him.}

1.) 25 Sep 2020 16:51:04
Any updates on Wijnaldum please, ed? I can't help but feel like we're going to end up selling either him or Grujic this window.

{Ed002's Note - no - but there is an active effort to sell Grujic.}

2.) 25 Sep 2020 17:18:25
I’d keep them both and bin off Keita at this rate but what do i know.

3.) 25 Sep 2020 17:24:50
Klopps press conference today he’s said gomez will be back in contention for mon but Hendo is def out. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Fab stay at centre back to give Gomez an extra couple of days and Thiago to get his full debut with Wiji and 1 other. If Gomez plays I believe it will be Fab in there but if he doesn’t then something tells me he might go with Naby again. I think Jones deserves a start in there but Kieta seems to be ahead of him in Klopps eyes.

4.) 25 Sep 2020 17:25:41
Which one is it then, keep him or sell him? Lol.

5.) 25 Sep 2020 17:54:32
Sell keita.

6.) 25 Sep 2020 19:35:06
So if Klopp wants him to stay who's tryin 2 sell him?

{Ed001's Note - Klopp wants to keep him but it is not that simple, we still need to raise money and he is one of those players that could be sold for a decent amount of money.}

7.) 25 Sep 2020 20:11:04
JK, I disagree. I think Gomez will start if ready so Fab can play alongside Thiago or behind him. Not sure it is the best thing to leave Thiago in the 6 all alone with Gini and Naby Naby either side of him ESPN with Naby lacking defensive nous and lazy when out of possession or when tracking back.

8.) 25 Sep 2020 22:35:06
I don’t fancy Fabinho and Thiago in a midfield 3 I have to say, not in a 4-3-3.
Just doesn’t feel tight at all, there’s not enough pace and mobility with those two together.

9.) 25 Sep 2020 22:33:31
Ed001 we need raise money to cover what we’ve spent mate or to find another signing you think?

{Ed001's Note - both.}

10.) 26 Sep 2020 02:01:02
I personally think Grujic can serve an important role in our team and who knows, if we actually give the lad a chance he might just offer us something different when we need it. Given Klopp has assured him in the past that he will be called upon, I don't see why we need to rush to sell him right now unless we're just desperate for money. Grujic is a midfielder that knows how to hit the net. He's tall, strong, young, clips along quick enough, has plenty of class on the ball. the only thing that makes us want to sell him, I think, is how strong Curtis has come on, although I see them as two entirely different players. If we go into the season with Naby, Thiago, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Jones AND Grujic its going to be difficult for him to find a game, but we'll be damn spoiled for choice. Wilson is the only one I think we have to move on. Brewster will probably go to, which is a disappointment, but probably best for his career with Jota coming in.

11.) 26 Sep 2020 02:07:01
I'd start Gomez personally as arsenal will have an attack set up different to what Chelsea did. Aubameyang with his pace from the left side will not be as isolated as Werner was pretty much on his own. Lacazette will be asking more of our defence and willian too so I'd want Gomez with his speed to play beside Trent on that wing. Use fabinho to bring us extra protection and thiago in there to get on the ball and create openings or spaces like he does best. Gini as the other midfielder and leave keita as an option to add us something different if needed from the bench.

12.) 26 Sep 2020 08:39:58
Gents I’d personally start Gomez as well, I’m just thinking with 3 games in 6 days I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sit out in case he aggravates the injury and then we’re right up the creek. I’m also sure Thiagos pressing, interception and tackling stats are extremely high so I don’t really see an issue with him and Fab in midfield together. Otherwise If one plays then the other doesn’t.



23 Sep 2020 10:54:07
Hi Ed's are you aware of the situation or severity to the injuries to Hendo and Ox please?


{Ed001's Note - Hendo should be fit for the weekend, I doubt he will be risked in the cup though.
Ox is still out for a while.}

1.) 23 Sep 2020 11:28:00
Cheers Ed’s appreciate the update. I still think Hendo is integral to what we do despite our other midfield options and a real leader When he is on the field.

{Ed001's Note - and me, he is very much a key player for us.}

2.) 23 Sep 2020 13:01:26
Sounds like we could be short on defenders Ed for Lincoln game with Matip, Gomez, Koumetio all injured, you think we might be forced to lay Virgil?

{Ed001's Note - I would have thought Klopp will stick to using a youth team if possible.}

3.) 23 Sep 2020 13:55:28
Ed1 I have an awkward question mate, something I personally wouldn't be able to answer. Who is more important for the team, Hendo or Firmino? Completely different players yet without them we know about it, if you had to choose one who would it be? Only reason I ask is because in my opinion they are the two most important players in the squad (debatable I know) .

{Ed001's Note - Henderson is the captain for good reason. He is the most important player in the squad. Not the best player, but that is a different matter.}

4.) 23 Sep 2020 15:15:31
Salah, both are important for diff. reasons. Bobbie is the glue that holds the system together. Hendo is the heart and soul of the team. We can with without Bobbie. We CANNOT win W/ O Hendo.

5.) 23 Sep 2020 16:57:51
This glue garbage is embarrassing. VVD and Allison are the most important. Salah, mane, Jota wouldn’t miss Firmino on his last 2 seasons form. He can’t even kick it straight atm from 3 yards in front of open goal.

I think Jota has been brought in because Klopp is worried by the constant missed chances of Firmino as it will cost us going forward. Last season he missed So many chances with only the keeper to beat.

Henderson has been awesome for 2 seasons their playing level is not on the same planet. Hendon again Mane is a much fairer comparison.

6.) 23 Sep 2020 19:15:46
Don't think it'll be long into firminos season before he's benched for jota. IF he has another season like last year. even though we won the league. As for jordan he's one of the most important players and great captain.

7.) 24 Sep 2020 08:49:37
What was wrong with Firmono's last season magico?



20 Sep 2020 21:34:27
Anyone know how long Matip and Gomez are expected to be out for? Just one fit senior CB is far from ideal. Fabinho played very well but he is better suited to CM imo.


1.) 20 Sep 2020 21:49:58
Gomez should be ok for Thurs, but Matip out for another few weeks still was the news today from Klopp.

2.) 20 Sep 2020 21:52:39
The injury record on those 2 is shocking to be fair.

3.) 20 Sep 2020 21:58:03
Matip missed 22 league games last season with injury.

4.) 20 Sep 2020 22:01:12
Barring gomez big injury 2 years back he isn't that bad. Think someone on the live chat said he missed 1 game last year.

We need another cb though as we can't rely on matip as third choice. Are they any good home grown cbs available? I'd keep nat but it seems he's being pushed for sale.

5.) 20 Sep 2020 22:04:19
Joe Gomez played 43 games last season 🤦🏼‍♂️.

6.) 20 Sep 2020 22:04:30
If a good offer came in for matip sell and replace as he is a liability.

7.) 20 Sep 2020 22:13:42
Sorry Ed, do you think we are done on the market mate or are you aware that We are still wanting to bring another CB in?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to sell two non HG to break even - three if a non HG CB arrives, but only two if a HG CB arrives.}

8.) 20 Sep 2020 22:35:20
So 2 with or without a homegrown player

Thought it would be one with a homegrown CB.

9.) 20 Sep 2020 22:39:19
Ben white would be a great addition if were able to offload a few players. Think he might if signed a new deal tho so might not be an option.

10.) 20 Sep 2020 22:43:50
Offer them keita for Ben white. Is he a villa player?



18 Sep 2020 17:48:15
Ed's I'm assuming That we can expect quite a few players to leave over the next few weeks given the fact we are looking like spending close to 60M on Thiago and Jota, and the fact we had no money and had to sell to buy? Anyone close to the exit door that you are aware off? Or we we spending money we expect to get in the future?


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have to sell or release players because they are over the limit for non-HG players. Liverpool cannot spend against future income - they can spend the money that was raised as a mortgage against Anfield and all other fixed assets - such as the property they obtained through the compulsary purchase scheme. That was never the plan so they need to sell players over the coming two weeks or so.}

1.) 19 Sep 2020 15:52:09
Sorry Ed ..........................

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to this again.}

2.) 19 Sep 2020 16:45:10
No problem, I have barely been on these pages the past 6 months, lot of stuff going on in the real world, so perhaps I missed when this information was put out there. All the best Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Cheers Seano.}

Ed why do out youngsters seem to not quite make it with us usually. I mean apart from a select few, I always read about them coming through the system and Brewster was deemed good enough for the top tier but now we are considering selling him to more than likely being in an oversees/ foreign player?


{Ed001's Note - because being good enough to make it is not the same as being good enough to make it with us.}

{Ed002's Note - I have already answered this in the same thread.}

10 Sep 2020 12:40:33
I think if something was going to happen with Thiago then it would of done by now, the fact we Still haven’t approached Bayern speaks volumes imo and if Gini does leave we will look to bring in Grujic.
