Ed002 If you are about. I know it's not a Liverpool question, so will try. With Neco Williams being Welsh, how does a Welsh based side go about joining the a English leagues?

Thanks

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - The Welsh FA did not exist until fairly recently and the original few clubs that were in the English league system stayed on.}


1.) 22 Mar 2020 21:47:52
Would there ever be an issue, if say these clubs wanted to reaturn? I know Colwyn Bay did a season or so ago.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They refused at the time - and it is not viable for Cardiff or Swansea, and perhaps not Newport.}


2.) 22 Mar 2020 22:07:00
Out of curiosity, what it be possible to reaturn 'home'? And what would need to be done.

Sorry for the strange questions, just always wonderd

Thanks

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - Yes but they are not going to do it.}


3.) 22 Mar 2020 22:16:47
I never though they would Ed. I never thought they would.

Thank you for answering my questions.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Hi Eds,

Have Liverpool ever shown any interest in Norwich City LB, Jamal Lewis? As I think he would make an excellent player, to push and back up Andy Robertson.

Also, what are your thoughts on the player?

Thanks

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - No, he looks to be heading elsewhere in the ummer - and Liverpool have two good young options at LB.}


1.) 17 Feb 2020 17:39:51
Will he be staying in the PL Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, that is the plan. But Liverpool has no interest in him.}


2.) 17 Feb 2020 22:41:48
i really think we should be giving Williams, Lewis and Larouci the chance to push to become back ups for the full back positions.

spending 30m on someone who won't be first choice is a bit mad! ed do you think we will see more of the above once we win the league?

{Ed002's Note - Larouci seemed to have got ahead of Lewis and is well thought of as a player. There has been some eyebrows raised over his deciding to reject France as an International side which may see him depart for the AFCON. The club have some good young players and need to have some sort of plan for them - and the club know that and I expect them to act on it - else they will have the same fate as others from the leading sides who have walked.}


3.) 17 Feb 2020 23:24:27
thanks ed!

from my limited watching of them, larouci has more skill and flair but lewis offers a better cross and defence.

is he seen as near to being called up to the international side, or is that more of the long term view.

completely agree on the youth front which is why i am not keen on us looking at cantwell, lallana leaving should be an opportunity for the likes of jones etc to step up.

{Ed002's Note - I know little of the Algerian international side. Jones plays a different position to Lallana - hence LFC looking at a prior option to replace him in the correct position.}


4.) 18 Feb 2020 07:57:48
Admittedly I've only seen Lewis in one game against Shrewsbury, but I think he's a better player currently than Larouci, and I think he's got more potential than Larouci too, who seems overly reliant on his physical attributes. It's just my opinion though, I'm sure Klopp and Ljinders are better equipped at judging these players than I ever will be.


5.) 18 Feb 2020 04:57:38
How should the club act on it Ed? I refer to the situation with the young players. Better loan system? Clearer route to first team?

{Ed002's Note - They need to have a plan for each player - there will not be loans for the Under 18s. What gets players who are close to the first team is young players arriving who are going to be ahead of them.}


6.) 18 Feb 2020 23:56:29
I think we've seen that klopp has intentions to challenge these youngsters to break into first team squad roles and it's healthy to have the likes of 2 different type of LB competing for that spot while Williams has the chance to claim RB squad role. We've seen the likes of clyne, Moreno, sturridge deemed surplus and klopp instead giving youngsters the game time in their positions. Hopefully Hoever, VDB, Jones, Elliot, Brewster can also continue to play and develop and we get to see a few success stories like Trent as klopp genuinely seems to have an interest in improving these guys who are yet aged only from 16-19yrs and have time on their hands. It's the likes of Woodburn, Wilson, Kane, ejaria etc I see no plan to integrate in future squad.

A question for Eds 1 and 2.

If the season was not to be completed at all, how would you end the season?

Null and void, postpone for a year, other.

Thanks

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously most people want it completed Marc. If that is not possible they need to draw a line across now and head for the proposal to take the top two from the Championship with no relegation this year and four going down over each of the following two years. I would put it to the vote of all 20 Premier League member clubs whether to hand over the PL trophy requiring agreement or abstainment from all for it to happen. It would create a precedent as last time it happened in England the league was abandoned the title was not awarded. So if any one club blackballs the vote, it would not be awarded.}


1.) 15 Mar 2020 14:16:17
The sad thing is, we are potentially a single win away from being crowned league champions. I think it would be highly unfair, for us not to be awarded the title and I would say the same if it was a Manchester club or anybody else. It's just a shame that it could come down to that. I really hope common sense prevails.

{Ed002's Note - I think it the most approrpriate way to decide if the season can't be finished. The Premier League has to make the decision and the Premier League is the clubs plus a small management organisation. I doubt most of the clubs would be bothered by it - but I can think of perhaps four who will need persuading not to vote against or who might abstain.}


2.) 15 Mar 2020 15:25:03
Many thanks for your input, Ed02.


3.) 15 Mar 2020 16:08:16
Ed it is simply impossible to think that all 20 clubs are even able to vote towards a unanimous decision. There is simply too much self-interest. There’s nine games left, we played 3 a week almost over Xmas. So 3 weeks will see this season done, whenever that may be. That is the only fair way imo.
Then we start again, chop and change or condense next season if required?

{Ed002's Note - Actually it is not a problem and they regularly vote on different matters. There is no self-interest in a simple vote to create an exception to hand Liverpool the Chamionship if they have failed to win it. As I said there are three or four clubs that could vote against it could abstain, but it is not impossible to see them all voting the same way - they often do. If it comes to it.}


4.) 15 Mar 2020 17:01:43
It would be absolutely petty for city or utd to vote against it. We're obviously going to win it if it continues. Who would be the 4 ed02? Iyo.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to name the four as it would lead to the usual issues - and there is no point speculating.}


 

 

24 Jan 2020 16:02:36
Hi Eds.

If Mbappe was to become available for transfer and he and us were keen, would it be financially possible for us to sign him. As I know he would cost a crazy amount of money.

Also do you think he would be suited to our style of play and PL football?

Thanks

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - Mbappe will move elsewhere. Liverpool has shown no interest in him and his interest is in moving to Real Madrid (for perhaps euro 250M) whilst PSG will offer him something in the order of euro 750k per week to stay. It would be a money pit and major distraction for Liverpool.}


1.) 24 Jan 2020 17:35:23
Would it be fair to say he could expect to get a wage, close to the one PSG are likely to offer at Real Madrid?

{Ed002's Note - This is not the right page to go in to such things.}


2.) 24 Jan 2020 18:26:49
It's a nice idea but clearly the wages put us out of the race. Never mind.


3.) 24 Jan 2020 19:17:46
One thing is for sure. Playing for PSG in the just eat farmers league isn’t good enough for the likes of Mbappe.
I think he will use Real Madrid as a stepping stone to the best Team in the world Liverpool. If he proves himself there, we might let him join for 50k a week.


4.) 24 Jan 2020 19:35:33
Can't rule him out ever playing for Liverpool tho. After his Madrid days, God knows where we'll be. Can't remember the last time we signed a player on the way down.


5.) 24 Jan 2020 20:22:49
750k holy sweet jeebus! If that happens the football world is even more f#%#%d then proper f#%#%d!


6.) 24 Jan 2020 20:37:19
Mbappe will never play for Liverpool. He is in the bracket of Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar etc that we just could never afford. He's some player all the same ready to take the mantle from Messi and Ronaldo.


7.) 24 Jan 2020 20:51:19
As good as mbappe is we can't invest that amount of wage and cash into one player, in the prem with the standard LFC are currently setting teams need 11 players playing as a team to compete and mbappe would simply be too much of an investment in one position for me personally. We've beat PSG before he just isn't worth the levels of money they're talking about, no player is worth the 250mil plus 750k a week! I'd expect hatricks every week lol.

{Ed047's Note - it’s a world gone mad


8.) 24 Jan 2020 22:09:11
Ed, with wages like that being offered, would the club take out insurance in case he is injured? If so, the premiums must be huge. Also, would insurance cover non football related injuries like slipping on the TV remote at home?

{Ed002's Note - Most players are insured for football related injury. I have no idea whether household injuries count.}


9.) 25 Jan 2020 00:00:31
The bubble will burst, it's unsubstainable 40 mill a yr in wages plus transfer fee, do me a favour.

That show pony Neymars fee has screwed it all up, and now he's trapped, PSG overpaid, he's not happy and no one is stupid enough to pay anything like what PSG did.


10.) 25 Jan 2020 04:06:23
As world class a player he is, any potential transfer to us would be a huge business risk and very likely a damaging one. First of all the transfer fee would be ludicrous to start but the biggest problem would be salary which is where we've done excellent work in maintaining an equal, fair balance throughout the squad while rewarding good performer's with realistic and deserving contracts.

Our top earners around 200k weekly while rest of important main squad players range between 100k and 150k which is a great structure that has shown is keeping the squad settled and happy.

Problems arise when clubs like United arsenal etc start giving likes of Sanchez or ozil for example a salary that is double, triple or quadruple the amounts being giving to players who are performing better and then question or become uneasy by the vast margin between certain players salary to their own.

We would never fall into that trap of recklessly paying a new signing 500k+ as it goes against all the principles of our structure that has been operating far too successfully to risk it all for just 1 player. It just wouldn't work for us as a realistic transfer.


11.) 25 Jan 2020 04:53:48
Unbelievable that anyone should be paid that much per week.


12.) 25 jan 2020 05:32:03
it's that sort of money that gives the game a bad name. it's pretty disgusting isn't it. think what could be done with that.


13.) 25 Jan 2020 08:19:51
We could build to new stands at Anfield and still have change to buy a top top striker for that money!


14.) 25 Jan 2020 09:51:53
750k a week? No way LFC pay ANY player those wages.


15.) 25 Jan 2020 10:10:44
I think how it works, in order for us to get the likes of Mbappe we need to be consistently challenging for titles (check) and paying obscene wages (TBC)


 

 

15 Jan 2020 16:30:45
Hi Eds,

Two questions if I many.

Do you seen Liverpool getting a deal agreed for a player this month, with a view to a move in the summer?

What do you see as being Curtis Jones best position?

Thanks in advance.

Marc.

{Ed002's Note - (a) Who do you have in mind? (b) Typically he plays in CM and one assumes the coaches know what is best for him.}


1.) 15 Jan 2020 17:08:48
A player for the first team. Diego Carlos perhaps.


2.) 15 Jan 2020 18:20:41
I think we should throw in a "cheaky bid" for Jamie vardy. Get him for the twilight. He can play football, has pace, will be cheap (ish) knows where the goal is.

With mane and salah potentially out for the african Cup for a month we need another forward. Is Bobby, origi and shaqiri enough? Yeah there's lallana and minamino. But if we had vardy we could boast a back up front line of minamino, vardy and firmino (origi too)

It'll never happen, I'm thinking out of the box but I really think we are going to have to replace one of mane or salah (or very sadly both) with non African players. Apart from the Estonian cb (forgot his name?! ) who was brought in to do a job until we got vvd, I can't think of any 30+ signings.

Just out of interest, what sort of price do you think vardy would generate today? That's to eds (if you have the time) and reds (if you can be bothered to reply to my ridiculous post!

Still think he could do a job for us.

{Ed001's Note - too much to be worth buying a complete arse like that.}


3.) 15 Jan 2020 18:32:00
Robbie, you're right. That post was indeed ridiculous BUT you get an A for effort.


4.) 15 Jan 2020 19:46:34
I’m hoping your comment was a deliberate wordplay on the “cheaky” question Ed? 😀.

{Ed001's Note - oh of course, I did it totally deliberately. And if you believe that I have some moon rocks to sell you....}


5.) 15 Jan 2020 20:58:51
Don’t discount Origi and Shaq. They were in that starting lineup that beat Barcelona 4-0.

It’s a month of no Mane and Salah, you can’t be signing players just to cover off one month. Worth giving a shot to some of the kiddies like Jones and Elliot during that period.


6.) 15 Jan 2020 21:30:10
Moon rocks you say 🤔, count me in.


7.) 15 Jan 2020 21:56:10
Even if he came and played for free I wouldn't want Vardy. Can score goals for sure, but just seems like a one man ego trip to me. Not that I know much of course, she how he appears.


8.) 16 Jan 2020 02:11:10
Hasn't the Afcon been moved anyway? I thought it no longer took place mid season?


9.) 16 Jan 2020 07:16:08
AFCON is in the summer now.

{Ed001's Note - the last one was, but 2021 will be in January again.}


10.) 16 Jan 2020 19:09:21
I guess when you look at the Barcelona result we don't need replacements.


 

 

01 Jan 2020 15:31:07
Happy New year Eds,

What are the rule regarding PL clubs, having feeder clubs in the UK and around Europe?

{Ed002's Note - In what respect?}


1.) 01 Jan 2020 16:05:18
Are they allowed in the same way that RBS have with FC Liefering.

{Ed002's Note - Yes as they have different ownership as RBS has an independent layer separating them from the Red Bull company - else they would not be able to compete in the same competitions. Several sides have a similar set up across Europe (e.g. Monaco and Cercle Brugge) and others (particularly in England where formal feeder agreements are not allowed) have less formal agreements to work together - as Liverpool did with Genk at one time, and Manchester United with Royal Antwerp, Chelsea with PSV etc..}


2.) 01 Jan 2020 16:26:14
Can you see Liverpool going down that road again, like they did with Genk?

{Ed002's Note - Not right now.}


3.) 01 Jan 2020 16:52:53
Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


 

 

10 Dec 2019 21:38:32
Evening Eds,

With the news that Liverpool have released plans to increase the Anfiled road stand, taking the capacity to 61,000. Does this also mean, that we will see some activity with improving the transport around the ground? Mainly working with the council an other authorises to get a new stadium open on say the old Canada Dock Branch line?

Thnaks in advance.

{Ed025's Note - the city council will be concentrating on everton marc, because we are after all the "peoples club"and 80% of scousers are evertonians mate.. :)


1.) 10 Dec 2019 22:10:19
New station, I mean of course.

You keep telling yourself that Ed025 :)

{Ed025's Note - i will mate.. :)


2.) 10 Dec 2019 22:19:33
I doubt it mate, it’ll be more of a regeneration project around the area.

The one good thing is that the proposed new seats will go purely to general match day and season tickets, not hospitality.


3.) 10 Dec 2019 22:23:15
to be fair ed, i really like the everton plans for their new stadium as well.

looks well thought out and thoughtful of the community!

shame it can't be reflected on the pitch.

{Ed025's Note - your dead right SR, its no use having a state of the art stadium and entertaining luton on a saturday mate..


4.) 10 Dec 2019 22:28:40
Defo the people's club mate as you make so many people happy when there club plays yas. Jokin aside hope your well mate.

{Ed025's Note - cheers walton mate.. :)


5.) 10 Dec 2019 22:31:59
Royal Iris you need ed25 ease the Wallasey tunnel Congestion.

{Ed025's Note - we have a good following from the wirral peninsula and beyond john, and even though they can never be counted as scousers we apprciate them mate.. :)


6.) 10 Dec 2019 22:37:41
Gotta say ed 25 your club are so much better human beings than Liverpool mate got that proven to me this week.

{Ed025's Note - tell me more berg mate..


7.) 10 Dec 2019 22:45:16
You'll need an up to date stadium for the Championship alright, 25.

{Ed025's Note - thats our worst nightmare mate..


8.) 11 Dec 2019 06:36:22
Why will they concentrate on a club in relegation battle while the leaders and the bigger club from the area are fighting for league and champions league haha ed2-5.

{Ed025's Note - because old chippy tits is a blue and whatever he says goes liverbird, plus its about the people of liverpool not norway mate.. :)

Would it be fair to say the redevelopment of the main stand, was a mistake and going ahead with plans to build a new stadium away from Anfield, would have made better financial sense, in the long term?

Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - No. The cost of building a new stadium would be very significant - Spurs have spent something close to £1B and have been plunged in to debt. The income from an extra 6,000 to 10,000 season tickets is zip in the big scheme of things.}
