Hi ed02

Any interest in Fabian Ruiz from Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - Fabian Ruiz (CM/DM) is seen by Real Madrid as a replacement for Kroos and/or Modric but is not first choice but they could still turn to him and are keeping their interest known to Napoli - and crucially Real Madrid have a player Napoli want who could be part of a trade. There have been discussions with his agent with Manchester City who see him as one of several options to the long-term replacement of Fernandinho. There have also been discussions with Bayern Munich but they are ideally after a DM and AM and although Ruiz often plays an DM role his value is as a CM player. Napoli have also met and spoken with Barcelona seen as a replacement for Arturo Vidal and/or Ivan Rakitic as they try and rebuild - but also wanted by Real Madrid and price will be an issue without sales or exchanges.Napoli will demand a very significant fee - somewhere in the region of €90M to €100M which would rule out Bayern Munich and probably Manchester City. I am not aware of any approach to his agent or Napoli by Liverpool.

I thought Rodri was Fernandinho's long term replacement?

{Ed002's Note - They never replaced Yaya Toure directly.}

Hi eds

Have we rejected a bid from Roma for Shaqiri?

{Ed002's Note - Not as far as I know - they have asked for a loan taht is all.}


1.) 14 Jan 2020 17:38:16
We should lend him for free if he's up for it. Still feel guilty about taking Mo and Ali off them.



I get over it very quickly though.


2.) 14 Jan 2020 18:33:37
Shouldn't loan him out full stop. he's part of the squad that's going for the league title. he's needed.


3.) 14 Jan 2020 21:46:41
Completely agree maybe at the end of the season we can review but we shouldn’t be weakening our squad midway through!


4.) 14 Jan 2020 23:57:24
Absolutely no need to disrupt and weaken our squad mid season, his valuation won't differ realistically in the summer if we decide to move him on. All it takes is for one of our front 3 to get a bad injury and we'd be left with only minamino and origi as options for every league and european game. Shaq can still offer us creative spark in certain games.


5.) 15 Jan 2020 10:15:21
If it’s a sale I could see why we might consider it (assuming it’s for a meaningful figure) with Minamino coming in and Origi in good form, and we also have Ox able to play on the wing etc. but for a loan It just wouldn’t make sense IMO as would weaken the squad without any meaningful financial upside.


 

 

28 Sep 2019 09:11:02
It's Pedro Chirivela not Sepp sorry.


1.) 28 Sep 2019 10:36:20
What on earth possessed us to field Chirivella without making sure his paperwork was in order?

Did we not know about it or did we just not bother? Is Rick Parry back running our club's admin department or something?


2.) 28 Sep 2019 17:56:00
I also don’t know from a football perspective why we bought him on and not Kane, Chirivella should of left the club in the summer and not releasing him will block opportunities for others.

Lewis could of been given an opportunity in midfield base.


3.) 28 Sep 2019 20:01:46
There were offers for Chirivella. He declined to leave.


4.) 29 Sep 2019 01:08:04
I’ve heard it has been triggered.


5.) 29 Sep 2019 13:22:11
"Should have" and "could have" Southern Red, just saying.

Saw a lot of rumours that Van Dijk has won PFA player of the season and that it will be announced tomorrow.


1.) 24 Apr 2019 17:57:56
Had it won by Xmas really didn't he! impeccable.


2.) 24 Apr 2019 18:12:18
I just read the same.


3.) 24 Apr 2019 23:07:37
He won it by a country mile .
what a player .

Hi ed001

Hope you are well. Any idea if negotiations have started regarding a new contract for Gini?

{Ed001's Note - no, but I do expect him to get a new one.}


1.) 03 Apr 2019 11:55:23
Do you think he's been a good buy ed since we've had him?
Seems to of stepped up a bit this year.

{Ed001's Note - yes, he has proven himself to be a key player this season.}


2.) 03 Apr 2019 13:38:41
Looks like buying Keita for a vast sum has brought Gini to life. Needs more goals though, our midfield feels very light in that respect!


3.) 03 Apr 2019 19:58:40
I agree, if we play two go Hendo Gini or Fabinho, there’s no reason why the others can’t be More attacking, at least a ‘fill the box’ type of cm.

Hi ed01

Do you know if Jose Enrique was a boyhood Liverpool fan or did he develop this love while playing for Liverpool?

His passion for the club is amazing. Seems a die hard Liverpool fan.

{Ed001's Note - it was due to playing for us that he fell in love with Liverpool.}


 

 

06 Apr 2020 18:40:08
Liverpool have decided to find alternative means to pay staff and will not use the coronavirus job retention scheme.

{Ed025's Note - and about time MSG, it needed doing mate..


1.) 06 Apr 2020 18:45:31
Proper order.


2.) 06 Apr 2020 18:49:44
Great news. They listened to the fans.

{Ed025's Note - it is roro..


3.) 06 Apr 2020 18:52:13
Yes they were wrong, and the people who made the decision might of thought they were making the correct one at the time.

But, when you make a mistake it’s how you respond and they have done that. Hopefully that’s a line drawn under the matter.

{Ed025's Note - lets hope so mate..


4.) 06 Apr 2020 19:06:55
Thank goodness.


5.) 06 Apr 2020 20:32:13
Good stuff! horrible decision in the first place.

Hi ed01

Do you think Ryan Babel could have been world class if he worked hard enough?

{Ed001's Note - no, he was never that good.}


1.) 22 Mar 2020 11:42:33
Who do you think could of gone on to be better than what they was Ed?
I think Sturridge. I think he was willing to work through his knocks and battle a bit more on the pitch he could of been absolutely class.

{Ed001's Note - Rob Jones is the standout in this area. He had the potential to be the best right-back ever to play the game.}


2.) 22 Mar 2020 13:08:45
Mommo Sissoko for me. Not his fault of course but what a player I thought he was.


3.) 22 Mar 2020 14:28:23
Thanks ed01

On that note (not Liverpool related ( but I believe if the Brazilian pair Ronaldo and Ronaldinho worked harder and had better attitudes and in the case of the former, better luck with injuries, the sky would have been the limit. 2 of the most naturally talented players I have ever seen.

{Ed001's Note - very true. Ronaldo, in particular, was incredible in terms of effect as well as ability. One of those players who took the breath away.}


4.) 22 Mar 2020 17:26:00
Loved the pair of them and both would be in my ultimate 11. Was talking about them with my mate yesterday and I think that care free attitude was what made them the players they were. Had they knuckled down and trained their socks off they wouldn't have tried the things they did and been the players we loved to watch. They were definitely here for a good time not a long time!


 

 

15 Mar 2020 17:46:21
In my opinion I doubt any of the teams will object to handing Liverpool the title.

If no title is awarded it doesn't really benefit anyone but if a precedent is set then opposing teams will know if something like this happens again and they are in a similar boat they will be protected.

{Ed002's Note - If you want a precedent it has already been set and it was not awarded. As I have said, there are three, perhaps four teams, that will either vote no or abstain if it comes down to that happening.}


1.) 15 Mar 2020 18:44:11
Thanks for the reply ed02. If I may ask who are the 3/ 4 teams.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant and we are not going to discuss it.}


2.) 15 Mar 2020 20:21:37
I think it’s pretty obvious which clubs would vote against Liverpool being handed the title.

Given the toxic relationships the clubs have, I think it’s crazy that a vote goes out to the clubs.

The decision needs to be made from either the premier league or the fa etc.


3.) 15 Mar 2020 21:19:22
If I were utd I wouldn't want to come across as petty. Obviously Liverpool will win the league. I think our massive lead should play a part. I know that sounds biased, and I probably am. But one win (potentially) from the title has to mean something. It'd be so unfair.


4.) 16 Mar 2020 11:40:21
Banter is one thing but if it was utd in the same situation, they'd get my vote, a team who has dominated like we have this season deserves it and that's as simple as it gets. If utd had done the same then I'd be saying the same thing, they deserve it.

Luckily they aren't at our level lol but what's right is right. Pointless discussion though because no matter what, that trophy is ours this year. There's no way on earth that we'll lose out on it.


5.) 16 Mar 2020 13:25:41
I would think that the teams who may vote against or abstain are the ones we've messed around off the field over the last few years. Man city, Southampton etc. I really can't see someone voting against the idea just based on a rivalry.


6.) 16 Mar 2020 13:32:50
I’m pretty sure teams wouldn’t vote to stop us winning. Clubs don't care about such things. They would vote to stop themselves ending up where they currently are in the table.

Wrecked my brain on this one but after a whole day of thinking I can't come up with any other names:

Players who have won all 6 (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup)

Christiano Ronaldo and. JAMES MILNER! What an achievement!


1.) 10 Mar 2020 08:38:45
I wrecked my brain with drink and drugs.


2.) 10 Mar 2020 13:23:50
I think both Rooney and Giggs are in that list as well.
But still a grate achievement .


3.) 10 Mar 2020 19:27:34
Scholes.


4.) 10 Mar 2020 21:18:11
Man Utd haven't won the Super Cup since 1991, so only Giggs has that honour. Shrek only won the 5 different trophies, not the 6th.

Mellisa Reddy is very reliable. If she told me my wife was cheating on me, I would file for dirvore based on that alone.

{Ed025's Note - shes hit and miss....sometimes she will do the dishes and other times she wont.. :)

I believe it is the 2021 edition which they plan to give participants £50 mil. This year's edition is considerably less however champions of the world sounds very appealing and the prize money should stil be more than Caraboa Cup for a fraction of the amount of games.

Seen these rumours and while I hope he stays I wouldn't hold it against him if he would want to leave. Great back up and we might struggle to find a better back up centre back who is comfortable playing in a defence with a high line.

Ed do you know if he is looking to leave?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.)

Thanks for the reply Ed001

When I have seen Wilson he has been on the right wing but I haven't watched him regularly so you might be right about him playing on the left.

Regarding Kent I feel his future lies elsewhere.

{Ed001's Note - they both can play either flank, though you may be right about Kent.}

Yeah I remember those games 0-0 in both. We won the group because Chelsea lost a match I think to Betis if memory serves correctly. We got knocked out in the round of 16. Barcelona won the Champions League after beating Arsenal in the final.

Kolo Toure very nearly became the first to win it with 3 different clubs after we narrowly missed out in 2014.
