Read some rumours Wilson is close to securing permanent switch this week. No club mentioned. Could be the fact he was not at pre season and someone doing some guess work. Be interesting to see where he ends up.

I'd love for him to go to Leeds. Biesla could be just the coach/ rocket that he needs to realize his potential.

Davey Sulls

Doesn't seem to have enough energy/ drive off the ball. Somewhat of a luxury player it seems. Id be glad to get 20m for him.
Wondering if Villa will pay what we are asking for Div, any idea what that figure is Ed's?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know.}


2.) 16 Aug 2020 09:55:49
I to have read that Wilson is not with the first team in Austria and is close to a move. Ed's are you able to shed any light on this or is this pure speculation.

{Ed002's Note - As has been explained there is interest in Wilson - Leeds are keen to take Wilson but say that Liverpool have priced him too high so they are no looking to others.}

Hi Ed,

I know you mentioned liverpool have scouted Filip Stevanovic. I like this kid a lot.

Could you give a full overview of what teams are interested in him right now and if there are any of these teams pushing for his transfer right now?

I hope we compete for this one.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - Filip Stevanovic (AM/LW) Partizan Belgrade kiddie who has been watched by Nice, Manchester City, Chelsea, Spurs, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Juventus, Torino, Liverpool, Lazio, Atalanta, Herta Berlin, Werder Bremen and Southampton. And I suspect others. Nice are working on a deal to take him in the summer and Monaco would like to do the same but await an appointment – don’t lose sight of him.}


1.) 09 Jul 2020 15:38:55
Thanks Ed. Appreciated as always. I started watching clips of him on your recommendation. Looks a real talent.

{Ed002's Note - One to watch Davey.}


2.) 10 Jul 2020 14:51:28
The question is whether we have the money to buy him. Do we?

{Ed002's Note - Stevanovic would be affordable.}

Jiri pavlenka ed?

It does not seem plausible to me that he would sit on the bench.

Seems like a non runner.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - Last year Jiri Pavlenka was one of the options to Alisson as I recall but I am not aware of any return form him right now. Are you sure this isn't old news of some type?


1.) 31 May 2019 16:09:35
I can confirm he pulled out of the 5:30pm at aintree.


2.) 01 Jun 2019 07:31:54
Probably someone like Reina or David Marshall look likely. Klopp won't spend anything more than a negligible amount on a second choice GK.


 

 

31 Aug 2018 11:24:43
Hi Ed002, With Lyon in the market for a striker, could you see them bidding for Origi? Or are they locked on Dembele. Seems Celtic are playing hardball over him.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - No, they have not shown any interest in Origi Davey.}


1.) 31 Aug 2018 13:20:46
Thanks Ed. Appreciated.


 

 

08 Aug 2018 14:15:18
I see rumours of Crystal Palace bidding for Origi. Around 15M.

Sounds plausible.

Davey Sulls

1.) 08 Aug 2018 15:31:19
Plausible but I'd guess we want more. Over 20 probably. Rightly in my opinion.

{Ed0333's Note - 20 mill for origi. We talking money or peanut M&M’s? If we get 20 million for origi I’ll be Ed’s 001’s bitch for the season.


2.) 08 Aug 2018 16:19:54
Not even in a world were Richarlson is 50M ed?

{Ed0333's Note - to my knowledge Richarlison is circa 35 million the rest is add ons. No mate even in a word where Troy Deeney was valued at 30 million once upon a time Divock Origi is not 20 million. If Edwards gets that amount he deserves a statue at Anfield.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 16:22:33
Think they should cut their losses and accept all reasonable offers for them just to get shut.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 16:31:52
We bought him at around 10mil plus the fees we got for loaning him back for one year. Anything above that should be acceptable, given that he never really made it to the first team.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 18:14:08
I agree with Ed’s 20m is silly. He hasn’t proven himself and people are not paying for his potential they are paying for the player he is now. Which in my opinion is no more than 15m.


6.) 08 Aug 2018 18:49:56
Richarlison is £35m plus addons realting to how well Everton do in the future. In other words, £35m.


7.) 08 Aug 2018 19:01:26
He's tall, quick, strong, premier league experienced.

Minimum of 20, if they want him now then they might just have to pay a little more aswel.


8.) 08 Aug 2018 19:06:14
You missed out a key factor. He can't finish! Kinda key for a Striker in the Prem.


9.) 08 Aug 2018 19:11:33
£15M is a reasonable fee for Origi, If I remember correctly Wolfsburg paid £6M loan fee for him last year, so we can pretend the fee is £20M+.


10.) 08 Aug 2018 19:21:29
Epicpotato
That comment, hahahaha.

{Ed025's Note - not funny one little bit imo..


11.) 08 Aug 2018 19:37:21
It'd be a shame to see Origi go because I always believed he'd break through but if he does go fingers crossed he can crack on and do well for himself/ new team. I agree with you ra, any profit on what we paid would be a good deal now I think.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 21:49:51
He's not really impressed or performed at the required level or consistently, either for us or away on loan. I wish the lad well but for his sake, and ours, it's better he leaves whatever the price may be.


13.) 08 Aug 2018 22:04:27
Origi has played 2 full seasons in the Prem as 2nd/ 3rd choice striker and has scored double figures both times.
The top scorer last season outside the top 6 scored 12 goals.
Origi as the main striker in a decent team will score that and that why he's worth £20mil in this market.


14.) 08 Aug 2018 22:13:48
Agree epic that other 15 m is pretty safe for Everton.


15.) 08 Aug 2018 23:01:30
I’m a World where Richarlison is £35m Origi should be worth £50m of anyone’s money. He will be a great striker for someone one day. Richarlison is just not very good.
I’ll never understand why Everton paid so much for Richarlison when Calvert Lewin it’s actually a better player. Is it because he’s Brazilian? Yet more gross mismanagement from the toffees that will see them relegated eventually. You mark my words.


16.) 08 Aug 2018 20:07:09
Sorry Ed025. Was just trying to lighten the mood a little.

{Ed025's Note - thats fine EP, if we cant give each other a bit of stick now and again then whats the point?, keep it coming mate..


17.) 08 Aug 2018 16:34:48
Ed033 we as a club seem to always over price our fringe players mate. Do you no why?

It's been said for weeks that we will be busy with outgoings but here we are with one day to go and still have so many players that will clearly get limited playing time.

The likes of

Mignolet Clyne Origi Ings Grujic amongst otherso still on our books swelling the squad and wage bill just doesn't make much sense to me.

{Ed0333's Note - to be honest mate I think it’s a case of being shafted continuously and the club have had enough. We always seemed to be Aldi or Lidl, other clubs knew they could always get a bargain from us and it seems someone up top has said enough is enough, which I wholeheartedly agree with. I think the high valuations started with the nippy Aussie fella whose name I can’t remember and Ibe. We got over market value for both in my opinion and it set a trend. There will be times that we’ll still let a player go cheap but I think that’ll be the exception rather than the norm. The players you mention will all be gone by the end of the month bar Clyne I think.


18.) 09 Aug 2018 01:10:34
Kloppbanger we can still sell players to european clubs for the next three weeks so its not one day to go.


19.) 09 Aug 2018 06:54:30
What if a European clubs wants to buy a premier league player after our window shuts, Can they offer cash plus player? Or can players only leave our shores in this strange early closing malarkey?

{Ed001's Note - can only leave.}


20.) 09 Aug 2018 01:03:10
That's a great point Ed333.

{Ed0333's Note - why thankyou Mr Salah and I thought of it all by myself 😂

I heard he might be going to Asda.

For an egg and cress sandwich I heard.

On route to TNA. Sure Khan is owning the TNA. isn't it?

Nevermind any of that rubbish, does anyone know if Asda is open Christmas Day?


 

 

10 Aug 2020 19:29:43
Hi ed002, have you gotten a chance to look at tsimikas before. Talent wise, good cover/ competition in your eyes?

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - I haven't but well thought of with the likes of Leicester and Napoli considering him. Always a good guide.}


1.) 10 Aug 2020 20:22:34
Davey if you want to know everything you need to know about "Tsimi" (Kostas Tsimikas", go on youtube and watch the BloodRed Podcast where a well-renowned Greek footie journalists in Themis Keseris, who knows LFC, Olympiakos and the player like he was a reds and Olympiakos fan. Interesting viewing.


2.) 10 Aug 2020 20:28:44
That's reassuring. Seems a reasonable price in this day and age. Hopefully able to cover effectively for Robbo and even push him to new heights.


3.) 10 Aug 2020 20:46:35
Really chuffed to finally sign Kostas after months and months of tracking him.


4.) 10 Aug 2020 20:26:46
Always a good indicator there Ed002.


5.) 10 Aug 2020 22:28:23
When Ed says “well thought of” that’s as good a guarantee of quality as you can get. This is a massive boost to next season as we’ve got good back up for both left and right fullback.


6.) 10 Aug 2020 23:28:52
Apparently we have been tracking him for a good few years, so it isn't a last minute impulse which is good to see.


7.) 11 Aug 2020 06:54:05
Left fullback definitely a very smart place to strengthen - the FBs have been so central to our attacking play and we’ve struggled when Robbo or Trent have been out.

Nico looks a great backup down the right now, and with Tsimikas down the left feel, id be a lot more comfortable as an attacking force if Robbo would need a rest (god forbid! )


 

 

09 Aug 2020 18:50:56
Hi ed002, I'm with many here in their belief of youngsters up front. Think elliot, brewster and minamino will do a great job of backing up rm and St. If we were to sell shaqiri and origi I feel klopp will look to add a right footed lw option.

Would you be able to give a fresh update of some of the options for this position?

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - Rashica and Doku seem the obvious choices behand Filip Stevanovic but I don't expect any of these to be moving to Liverpool.}


 

 

07 Aug 2020 12:04:24
Man I hope Wijnaldum surprises us all and signs a new contract.

For me Wijnaldum > Thiago.

Davey Sulls

1.) 07 Aug 2020 13:18:59
Don't ask me why davey mate, but I still think he will.


2.) 07 Aug 2020 13:51:43
For our system, injury record and PL experience, yeah you might be right in choosing Wijnaldum over Thiago, but in terms of individual quality and the creativity we’re lacking in midfield, Thiago over Wijnaldum all day long. It wouldn’t be a backwards step if wiji was to go and Thiago was to come let’s put it that way. My only concern would be his injury record otherwise I wouldn’t be totally against that outcome. The squad needs freshening up, and whilst wiji wouldn’t be a player I’d list as needing to move on, he clearly has a problem with signing a new contract with us, all whilst Thiago seemingly wants to play for us.


3.) 07 Aug 2020 13:51:47
The fact he hasn’t yet worries me. Maybe he’ll run his contract down like lallana prob easier for him to choose where he moves too in that case as no fee negotiations with lfc.


4.) 07 Aug 2020 14:23:31
Doesn't Gini want to go home lad's?


5.) 07 Aug 2020 14:24:30
Best case for me would be Gini signs and stays and Thiago joins.


6.) 07 Aug 2020 14:55:49
If Gini has yet to sign a contract he has had on the table since last year, I don't think he will sign it now. I hope I am wrong cos I love the guy to bits and IMO, is better than Thiago.


7.) 07 Aug 2020 16:02:43
It's looking a bit dodgy regarding wijnaldum seems everything gone quiet he is important too our squad as well. But maybe he wants a change and if he does wish him well an we move on .


8.) 07 Aug 2020 16:14:44
I think Wiji will move on but I also think that if he’s not sold in this window then he will play next season with the same effort and consistency that he’s shown in his time here. For me his attitude is 2nd to none and I include Hendo in that.


9.) 07 Aug 2020 16:47:33
I agree jk23. If he stays and runs down the contract, he will put in just as much effort. He's a real professional. He hasn't signed this contract, but he hasn't been hinting in the media how he suits purple and red. He hasn't been "playing the game" so to speak. He always seems so happy in interviews and I just can't imagine anyone wanting to leave this team at the moment, unless they're not getting a game.

But my head agrees with RM and ed01 that if he was going to he would've signed (echoes of the Emre can situation) but my heart hopes he stays. Class little player. I'll remember him fondly until the day I die.


10.) 07 Aug 2020 17:10:51
As Ed001 said, its his prerogative to not want to sign another contract, and ours to then sell him on the basis of that. The squad needs freshening up as it is and let’s be honest, if you had a gun pointed to your head and were forced to sell and then replace one of the starting 11, it would be Gini. He’s been a fantastic player for us but if he feels his time has come then we can’t sit on our arses and do nothing about it purely because we are afraid of change.

Make no bones about it, there is a real opportunity to improve the starting 11 here and Thiago is some player. It really is comedic the amount of people on this page trying to position themselves as football hipsters on this issue. Gini is a good player and we’d all love to see him stay for continuity, but Thiago is a fantastic midfielder and could potentially take us to another level. The only real concern is his injury record, however given Andreas Kornmayer worked with him for some years, i imagine he would be able to give Klopp reasonable advice on whether it would be worth signing him at all. As it stands the club do not seem phased by his injury record and in that i trust their judgement, just as i did when they decided not to sign Fekir. Trust in club and trust in Klopp!


11.) 07 Aug 2020 18:18:55
Ed001 do you see Thiago arriving if Gini stays mate?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt it.}


12.) 07 Aug 2020 18:38:45
If Thiago joins then it’s at the expense of someone else in that role, no doubt about it.

If he were simply an addition you’re looking at:

Keita, hendo, fab, ox, milner, wiji and Thiago - that’s 7 players for 3 positions in the squad. That doesn’t even take into account if Curtis Jones plays one of those roles for us.


13.) 07 Aug 2020 19:17:32
Just looking at Ox’s stats across all comps for the season and he started 13 games in centre mid and 7 games in the front 3. He then made 15 sub appearances but it doesn’t actually state what positions he came on in. Interested to see if anyone knew as just out of memory I think he’s probably played just as many games in front 3 as he has in centre mid. Perhaps he might be the one who is the odd one out in the centre of midfield. Just a thought.


14.) 07 Aug 2020 19:18:29
You're right anonymous woolback, if I had a gun at my head gini would be the first team player I'd let go, him or gomez I suppose. But he's in the first team and thus I love him, want him to stay. And it may be true but if not for him we wouldn't be European champions (almost definitely) and who knows what knock on effect that defeat could have had on the following season?


15.) 07 Aug 2020 19:52:45
We're talking about needing more creativity in the midfield. City have loads of creativity in midfield and we ended the season way ahead of them.

It should be more a case of City thinking "Hmm, we need more hardworking players in midfield to catch Liverpool". If Gini is going to leave, I wouldn't be surprised to see City in for him and offer him stupid wages.


16.) 07 Aug 2020 21:53:45
Spot on spud.


17.) 07 Aug 2020 22:25:03
Nah jk23, got to remember that the ox was coming back from a horrendous injury this season. Plus fabhino has made his spot permanent leaving only two spots, one really as Hendo is our captain. The Ox is a really handy player to have, I'm glad he's a red. I think he'll thrive on being a pl Champ and I reckon he's due a big season. Remember how good he was in that first season. He was almost a revelation! This seasons going to be quite big for him though.


18.) 08 Aug 2020 00:24:18
EpicPotato - Pep wouldn’t know how to use him effectively, just as he wouldn’t know how to use Firmino effectively either.


19.) 08 Aug 2020 07:45:13
Robbie you’re correct mate he was coming back from an injury mate and he was excellent in his first season. I like ox and I really want him to do well. Guys were speculating who would drop out if Thiago were to join and I was just pointing out that it could be Ox. And I don’t mean him being sold I just mean him staying as a squad player covering the midfield and front 3. His utility is a strength but also a downfall (for him) as I know he wants to be a centre mid.


20.) 08 Aug 2020 09:59:20
obvious follow-on . ed1 - do you see us signing Thiago is we sell Gini?

Also I'm not sure I've actually seen on here that we have made contact With Bayern of Thiagos reps at all?

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly Klopp's preferred option, so it would be the most likely replacement.}


21.) 08 Aug 2020 10:45:06
Guess Aouar is not an option if Gini leaves? Would love him to come in! But finances and dealing with Lyon probably stops any chance of this.

{Ed001's Note - he would be my personal choice too but Thiago is the most likely option. You have to remember Thiago has also made it very clear that he would like to play for Liverpool, which is something Klopp wants in his players.}


22.) 09 Aug 2020 18:43:41
I think it depends on the game. Against Man City I'd be happier with Wijnaldum in midfield. Against teams sitting back i'd much rather have Thiago.

Defensively Gini is very under rated and he had De Bruyne in his pocket at Anfield this season. How many players can say that? On the ball though, i find him to be too safe against lesser teams and lacking in inventiveness. Gini is also an aerial threat on crosses which has been crucial on big European nights against Roma, Barca, Atletico etc.

Thiago won't boss De Bruyne, but against a low block he'll break down the banks of 4 with tricky runs and his superb vision. He's a more composed finisher when he plays higher up too, and a much more natural playmaker.

It's a shame we can't have both of them as alternative options for different opposition. The finances just aren't there for that though.

There is one major thing that swings it for me. Wijnaldum isn't sure if he wants to play for Liverpool whereas Thiago is apparently really keen to play for Liverpool. I'd rather have a player who wants to be here any day of the week.

Gini has been great for us though and his best years in my opinion, are still ahead of him. So if he does make a pretty spectacular U-turn and sign the contract that's been on the table for months, i'll be pleased.

I think Thiago is better personally but it's a weird comparison because they are different players. If either player is starting for us next season i won't complain. I see Thiago as being in the top 5 in the world at what he does. I'm not sure Wijnaldum can say that, but i also won't vehemently argue with anyone who says he is.

Bayern's manager has dropped a pretty big hint Thiago will be playing in the Premier League this season. I hope it's with us but i'd have preferred it to be at the expense one of the back up midfielders rather than Gini. It is what it is though if he doesn't want to sign.


 

 

01 Aug 2020 01:13:55
What's your favourite thing about this current team?

Mine is when the opposition team gets a corner and you think. We might score here.

Davey Sulls

1.) 01 Aug 2020 06:55:59
The fact that they never ever give up
You always believe we will score that goal to get the win
Even. If we don’t always do
They make you believe they will.


2.) 01 Aug 2020 08:08:16
I like how hendo does the shuffle before we loft trophies.


3.) 01 Aug 2020 08:45:37
Klopps hugs.


4.) 01 Aug 2020 08:45:39
I love Henderson always did but the shuffle has to go but a major plus is we don't stop we keep going and going until the final whistle.


5.) 01 Aug 2020 09:03:24
My favourite thing about this team is their passion, their determination for success.


6.) 01 Aug 2020 09:08:38
The fact that this team makes Pep wet his pants all the time.


7.) 01 Aug 2020 09:29:17
The fact that nothing sees to be able to break them. Mentality Monsters, the lot of them.


8.) 01 Aug 2020 09:52:29
Aside from many of the things said above, mine would be the fact we are back on the perch. Yeah, some of you will protest the "arrogance" and "lack of humility" in my statement. I'll just suggest some golf or cricket somewhere on the TV for you.


9.) 01 Aug 2020 10:44:20
ArAy1969, you wear that Unbearable badge with pride. Love it.


10.) 01 Aug 2020 10:46:22
Yeah if that's the case I'm arrogant too ra, bugger it. Let's be arrogant :) .


11.) 01 Aug 2020 10:57:25
Favourite thing about the team, club and ownership is that they do things their way against the expertise of so many fans and are succeeding.


12.) 01 Aug 2020 10:05:55
Speed and urgency. I think that’s why when we’d won the league and took our foot off the gas, it was such an hard watch. I hope Klopp stays for another 15 years.


13.) 01 Aug 2020 13:56:53
I’d have to say the fact that they’re current Premier and Champions League winners 😅.


14.) 01 Aug 2020 14:09:47
I like their socks.


15.) 01 Aug 2020 14:35:41
Thanks Red Meister and Salah. 🙏.


16.) 01 Aug 2020 15:49:03
Mine is pretty simple (although davey's was brilliant)

This team has justified our belief in Liverpool fc. And they have given us our pride back. Many have taken it for granted already, I do sometimes. That's the best thing about this team, for me.


17.) 01 Aug 2020 10:05:55
Speed and urgency. I think that’s why when we’d won the league and took our foot off the gas, it was such an hard watch. I hope Klopp stays for another 15 years.


18.) 01 Aug 2020 20:10:52
Above everything. They seem a good bunch of lads. It makes it all the more special when we don't seem to have any knob-heads.

I could say loads of things about this squad, mentality, desire, winning mentality, but that's the main thing for me. If I was a neutral, I'd want them to be successful because they all seem decent guys.


19.) 03 Aug 2020 07:02:43
Davey Sulls, funny that because I think the same. As soon as there is a corner for the opposition I feel we can break and catch them on the counter.

Mane is very unlikely to leave this window. There is a rebuild coming for sure and I suspect fsg will look to sell high profile players like Mane when there is still high value. I highly doubt it will be this window however. I'm preparing mentally now to lose one or 2 big names next summer.

While I do like rashica I'd prefer a pacy player who can beat a man. Doku/ Stefanovic would be my picks. I been watching sarr recently as we get linked a lot. He is right footed and I personally think he would do extremely well in our system on the lw. I speak purely talent and style wise. From a price and afcon perspective I think others such as mentioned would be better choices.

There are 2 types of reds fans.

1. The ones who realize we have a world class squad already who are relaxed about transfers and just enjoy the transfer window show.

2. The reds who panic about everything and think we ll get relegated if we don't sign someone.

I doubt anyone can afford van dijk but I'm sure your comment will panic someone on here. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Is it mostly done to united then Ed? I really liked this lad. I'm with you. Think he's a potential future star of the game.

I don't think we need any. Particularly if we are short on cash.

Better to put full focus into Sales and clawing some of those funds back.

Tsimikas, Thiago and Jota looks a great window for us.

I'd like to see if under l6 year olds were completely removed from twitter etc. How much the abuse would reduce. I would say dramatically. I think we will look back on this free reign of being able to abuse someone with your own identity hidden and think "what were we thinking". I think the whole thing is a joke. I will never ever use it.

Thiago s best attribute is his vision. I think his vision is the best in the world right now.

I love how he can pick an unbelievable pass in a split second while also apologising to the other 2/ 3 options he saw in the same second.

I was even more impressed that he was able to pass as he always does in his first game without training. This shows that it is 100% vision driven and not having learned patterns in training and being able to execute. I think he will make us so much more unpredictable as a result and a better team.

I expect he will get much better defensively than he was Sunday once he s had a few weeks training however I don't see him reaching the energetic levels fab, hendo and wijnaldum. Combine thiago with a selection of 2 of these three midfielders and we have a world class midfield. I would not trust right now thiago being in the same midfield with ox/ kieta against the big boys. Against the bottom half perhaps.

I still haven't given up on Kieta. I'm in it for the long haul. I think he just needs to play with a higher energy and demand the ball a bit more. And obviously step up defensively. Still routing for him.
