Ello eds, is andre silva someone we would be looking at, very impressive goal rate in Germany also he is jotas brother which would help if we wanted him .


1.) 03 May 2021 21:18:32
That’s not his brother.


2.) 03 May 2021 22:21:15
Diego Jota does have a brother named Andre Silva, but not the striker you are thinking about. Coincidence that they share the name and both are Portuguese.


3.) 03 May 2021 22:38:33
Sorry guys I didn't realise that 😅, I was thinking we had 2 feet in the door to signing him then .


4.) 04 May 2021 09:38:32
Silva looks to be available for a decent price but I would worry a little looking at his record in Italy and Spain.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest.}


 

 

30 Jan 2021 18:21:27
Apparently we have bid 45million euro for demiral, surely we could get 3 centre backs for that .


1.) 30 Jan 2021 18:34:59
Maybe we are paying over a few years like Jota? More dept on the club though, worry’s me when we are a year or so away from needing a rebuild.


2.) 30 Jan 2021 18:38:32
I call BS. €45m for a defender who has barely played any football in the last two years and spends most of his time warming the bench at Juve?


3.) 30 Jan 2021 18:40:47
Isn't he an injury-prone player? I don't know my Italian football, just scanned through the socials.


4.) 30 Jan 2021 18:44:35
Which 3?


5.) 30 Jan 2021 18:49:22
Fans worry way too much about clubs finances these days. were fans not accountants!


6.) 30 Jan 2021 18:50:40
Nah no way. Ed002 said we were offered him a few weeks back so probably old news from then. We ain’t got 45quid let alone 45M.


7.) 30 Jan 2021 19:05:15
Botman 18 million, kabak 18 million, and change for a loan or a player.


8.) 30 Jan 2021 19:05:57
Botman might even be cheaper than 18 million.


9.) 30 Jan 2021 19:22:02
I’ll be honest Hailstones, the fact that Matips injury doesn’t sound as bad as Klopp made out I can’t see is signing anyone either on loan or permanent mate. Plenty of rumours we must of been linked to 6 different names today and all dismissed on here. All fiction I would think.


10.) 30 Jan 2021 19:33:09
I'm going for Romain Saiss from Wolves. Left out of last squad and only 6 months left on contract so could be a realistic option. I like him as well. Play in defence or midfield. Shrewd signing I'd say.


11.) 30 Jan 2021 19:50:42
Daretodream Matip is a flake way to unreliable we can’t be counting on him!


12.) 30 Jan 2021 20:10:41
Dare to dream. I think we have to really. Matip is good but plays one game and injured. We can't risk it.


13.) 30 Jan 2021 20:30:32
Yes saiss would be nice and another.


14.) 30 Jan 2021 22:40:56
well lately it's matip plays only one good HALF before injury.


 

 

18 Jan 2021 12:26:03
Any one expecting jota to just pop back in and save the day needs to think that he is just coming back from a knee injury and might take time to get up too speed.


1.) 18 Jan 2021 12:58:36
Will still be better than bobby haha.
He could also come back to scoring form in his first game back.


2.) 18 Jan 2021 15:17:26
He will not be back until the second week of February.


3.) 18 Jan 2021 17:59:45
Magico at least Bobby was getting in the positions to shoot, the other two were just as wasteful, but Bobby was trying to make things happen.


4.) 19 Jan 2021 07:53:18
Not doubting Bobby's positional play. but he shooting is dreadful.


5.) 19 Jan 2021 07:55:12
Agree mane and salah were awful though.
Try salah through middle and push bobby or ox to right forward?


6.) 19 Jan 2021 09:01:00
Bobby seems worse at them moment because he has to drop so deep I can’t see why Klopp won’t just play the young lads at the back with fab in front of them to ease the pressure and hendo and Thiago to dictate the play from midfield and feed Bobby salah and mane giving them the extra yard back.


7.) 19 Jan 2021 09:02:24
Has anyone noticed that the positioning is no way near as fluid as before. It used to seem like the forwards all swapped round and popped up in each others position. I think against Man U I saw salah and mane switch once, salah was soo wide on the right all game. Maybe it is just a confidence thing and they are just trying to keep it simple to get back into form.


8.) 21 Jan 2021 00:35:20
We are dropping too deep too early. You could see it against Utd which creates holes all throughout the team which makes it easier to get through us as you can’t press when there’s too much space. The distances to run are too much for anyone.
We are then winning the ball back in our own half and so starting an attack from there.
VVD and Gomez would hold the half way line for as long as they could which then risks leaving too much space in behind but it also compresses the play into the oppositions half meaning the press can be more effective and we win the ball higher.
With Fabs, Hendo and Gini in midfield they are all good ball winners so it was highly effective. It also meant that the FBs starting position was much higher allowing them to get forward more without killing themselves.
Fabs and Hendo at CB don’t have the confidence or pace to hold that line so we get stretched and we don’t have the ball winners in midfield either.
Klopp will see this but I’m not sure what we can do about it with the personnel we have available.


 

 

02 Aug 2020 11:06:48
We are being linked with Kostas tsimikas today and apparently his fee has been lowered, he seems like a great option for the squad if it's a serious link very much like Robertson, Ed's do u think there is any legs in this one?

{Ed002's Note - Kostas Tsimikas (LB) another option for Leicester if Chilwell were to depart but a Work Permit could be an issue in England unless a reasonable fee is paid. Yuto Nagatomo is due to be replaced in the summer so Galatasaray have looked. Third pick for Napoli as a Faouzi Ghoulam replacement but they could end up pushing. Fenerbahce are short a LB and have Hasan Ali Kaldirim out of contract in the summer. Locomotiv Moscow have Maciej Rybus heading for the door this summer and have seemingly given up hope on Mikhail Lysov and have been in contact with Olympiacos over a deal for the summer. Sheffield United and Nice have looked and declared an interest and Nice have discussed terms with his club but have failed to reach any agreement.}


1.) 02 Aug 2020 11:44:22
Thanks for reply ed, obviously he is linked with a lot of clubs who probably want him as a starter so see how that one develops .


2.) 02 Aug 2020 19:37:52
Ed u say permit if reasonable fee paid? Does that mean if u buy a player at such price u don’t need a permit am I taking that the wrong way cheers!

{Ed002's Note - It is a points based system and you need to get points from transfer fees and wages to be eligible. It will again change next year.}


 

 

14 Jul 2020 10:43:57
Hi Ed's we are linked with Leandro cabrera today is this realistic, and if so is he rated at all?

{Ed002's Note - Leandro Cabrera (CB) Real Betis have been discussing a potential loan for the 29 year old Uruguayan journeyman with Espanyol but they prefer a sale.

It would make little sense for Liverpool to be looking at a 29 year old non Home Grown player who is not the desired first choice player Klopp is keen on.}


1.) 14 Jul 2020 11:01:12
Thanks for the reply ed, sorry to ask but who is klopps first choice?

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos would be first choice but Liverpool are not able to fund a move at this time.}


2.) 14 Jul 2020 11:22:19
Do u think there will be an alternative too carlos, he looks good but too pricey.

{Ed002's Note - I understand Diego Llorente but there is no money right now.}


3.) 14 Jul 2020 12:00:45
Thanks ed this C.V. is sucking the soul out of football not just in the stadium but also the transfer market . We win the league after 30 years and we are feeding of scraps too stay competitive.

{Ed002's Note - It was unexpected and the loss of revenue did not support the business model used by the club. I would think pretty much all PL clubs will make a loss this season.


4.) 14 Jul 2020 14:30:55
" I would think pretty much all PL clubs will make a loss this season. " And that's the sad reality of it all. Why if no one is bought and/ or sold this summer, the loonies with the "Klopp and FSG out" and "I can't believe we don't have the money" bit should restrain themselves.

{Ed002's Note - PL clubs are not all in the same boat of course. Some will make a loss but still have money to spend, some will make a loss but will have to sell to buy, a couple will make a loss and figure out how to get back in shape FFP wise etc..}


5.) 14 Jul 2020 15:38:38
Chelsea have a lot of players on loan and in current squad that can be sold plus already money rich so they could load up big time. Same story with man city players too sell big dough them 2 will definitely be splashing .


6.) 14 Jul 2020 16:54:06
Ed 002, how do i find your definitive response on why there is no money for Carlos? I understand that the current global economic situation has seriously interfered with the plans of well run businesses who are not a bottomless pit of cash BUT surely if we sell, Carlos can be brought in part ex for Shaq? Shaq's got to be worth 15-20, Grujic the same or more, ditto Wilson.

{Ed002's Note - If LIverpool sell players and the club agree to use that money for transfers, then deduct 25% and there will be a small budget. The finances are not in relation to any one player - I have explained that Liverpool have financial commitments to be met - perhaps search on "commitment" or "payment".}


7.) 14 Jul 2020 18:38:13
I would think Chelsea, United and especially City will be active in the transfer market. The Guardian reported this morning, Pep will be given £150m!


8.) 14 Jul 2020 18:30:07
Ed002, I understand the finances in the present are being impacted pretty severely by everything going on right now, but we haven't really discussed a transfer for Carlos involving deferred payments. Is something like that off the table with Sevilla because they want/ need the cash from a potential Carlos sale?

{Ed002's Note - The club don't want to be building further debt. The CEO has made everything clear as well.}


9.) 14 Jul 2020 21:35:49
Do we have any green shield stamps?

Its funny seeing how the best European sides don't have a clue how to deal with prem sides, how the tables have turned and its obvious why the likes of Madrid, juventus, etc want the ESL because the likes of city, Chelsea with there money plus winning money are in danger of pulling away .


1.) 05 May 2021 21:40:01
They certainly seemed to have the measure of us.


2.) 05 May 2021 22:31:08
Yes but it shows over the course of 1 season how far we have fell and united, city, Chelsea have overtaken us and we are back shopping in poundstretcher.
Shows we have not been professional in our defence of the league and we aren't built to consistently win when in all honesty best placed we have been for 30 years to stay at the top of the tree.


3.) 05 May 2021 22:57:37
So do you expact us to finish behind chelsea and utd next season then? Lfc fans love a bit of negativity these days don't they. i don't know what signings will be made in the summer but as things stand, right now i would expect to finish ahead of both.


4.) 05 May 2021 23:50:08
One bad season and the moaners show their true colours.


5.) 06 May 2021 00:17:57
It’s not going to get any better next season without some changes, none of Mane, Salah or Firmino are getting any younger, if our midfield is stripped of Henderson and/ or Fabinho we may as well not bother playing with any midfielders and then there’s the defence and injury issues. Consider the fact that United, City and Chelsea are each looking at spending £150m-£200m+ in the summer and it just doesn’t make next season look very positive at all, given that we’re skint and miracles don’t happen.

{Ed0666's Note - I bet youre the star turn at funerals. How do you know those teams are gonna spend £150/£200 million in the summer each? And what’s to say we won’t buy Somoure or Bissouma, Konate and a goalscoring forward, VVD back to his vintage best and get our mojo back.? Regardless of what the naysayers tell you we lost out on the top 4 because we didn’t have a central defense for the most part of the season. You think with VVD, Gomes or Matip we wouldn’t have finished at least 4th? Trust in the process, trust in Klopp and most of all trust in you’re team.


6.) 06 May 2021 00:24:04
Thunderbird forgive me for moaning but if I am not mistaken we are currently 7th and only won one home game since late December, should I have the party poppers out .

{Ed0666's Note - I’ll bring the strippers and the Vimto


7.) 06 May 2021 00:40:49
Ed0666, City always spend big and since they mugged UEFA in the CAS they’re just going to stick two fingers up and spend a record sum, Chelsea always spend big and they’re now aware that FFP is meaningless, the Glazers are desperate to get the fans back onside so will throw an absolute fortune at it mark my words, there’s literally no guarantee that VVD will be back to his best and if he goes to the Euros he’ll likely trigger the injury again, Gomez is too injury prone to be relied upon, Somoure is an unknown quantity and is as likely to be a Naby Keita as anything else, Brighton don’t need to sell Bissouma, we have a load of players to shift with almost no value or interested buyers in the market and we literally do not have the money to sign a goal scoring forward player of any repute, and Salah is now puttting around that he wants to go apparently, but other than that, yeah, next season is going to be great isn’t it?

{Ed0666's Note - blow me you are half glass empty mate...lol. What makes you think FSG won’t spend big to appease the fans in the same way as the glazers will? What’s to say any of the players that United, Chelsea and city sign won’t be unknown quantities and be as useless as keita? Maybe VVD comes back roaring next season and doesn’t go to the euros. Maybe Gomes has an injury free season, maybe Micheal edwards works his magic and gets money for some of our highly paid dross? Maybe Salah stays another season because mbappe doesn’t got to Madrid? Stop with the negativity mate it’s football anything can happen. And that means positive things also.


8.) 06 May 2021 02:08:52
Looks like I picked the wrong week to give up drinking.


9.) 06 May 2021 03:25:58
Under Klopp Liverpool have had five years of continuous progress and one down year and it’s all doom and gloom. A couple of years ago Chelsea won the league, the next year they finished 10th and the following year they won the league again. Nothing in football is a good or bad as it seems. All the moaning about this season sounds like a bunch of self entitled modern fans who overreact to every setback.


10.) 06 May 2021 20:35:33
The negativity is killing me. The first time we have had a down season under Klopp where we went from also rand to the top of domestic, European and Wirkd Club football and just cos we had a season decimated with injuries and poor form, some of the fans have already downed tools and lost faith. Good thing Jlopp and the players did not have such defeatist mentality cos they would never have gotten us where they got us. Sad.


 

 

03 May 2021 20:32:06
Ello eds, is andre silva someone we would be looking at, very impressive goal rate in Germany also he is jotas brother which would help if we wanted him .

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 04 May 2021 08:21:25
He is not Jota brother.


 

 

03 May 2021 20:36:56
Chris Wood is underrated as a number 9, for me more effective than firmino as a striker, and definitely origi .
In a squad he would give us something different .


1.) 03 May 2021 21:06:25
How about no, he’s a 29 year old journeyman striker.


2.) 03 May 2021 21:27:09
Desperado times :)


3.) 03 May 2021 21:39:51
Is Carlton Cole still playing?


4.) 03 May 2021 22:03:26
Hahahaha I didn't realise how old he was I should of checked, I thought he was a lot younger, but he is above Burnley level 😆.


5.) 03 May 2021 22:52:12
In today’s world of modern science why does being 29 necessarily matter.

I mean we have bought people like Milner, maxi Rodriguez and Jari Litmanen who where all that age I believe. Some that where older - significantly so in the case of Gary mc.

Having a “journeyman” can often add a little to the squad. Even if only for a short time. Such as klavan.

And don’t forget sometimes you don’t know how good people are until they are given the chance - see Nat Philips.


6.) 04 May 2021 06:47:34
hailstones, are you a kiwi mate? someone raised this a week or so ago on our NZ supporters page on facebook.
resounding, no.


7.) 04 May 2021 07:13:33
More the point is that he isn't good enough. Yes he is having a good spell at the moment and yes he scored yesterday albeit a penalty but are we really going down that route? I mean, Chris Wood! Really?


8.) 04 May 2021 07:40:16
That’s my point too Irish, he’s the kind of player Roy Hodgson would sign. Just a very average journeyman player.


9.) 04 May 2021 09:10:33
Ok i get everyones point he ain't good enough, i wasnt saying he was the 2nd coming of alan shearer, more when i have seen him he is strong, good in air, holds up play an can bring other players in whilst scoring goals. He will do better in a more attacking side with better quality, one thing for sure is we need something different up front, maybe not chris wood but someone with similar qualities.


10.) 04 May 2021 09:42:13
It’s this type of response though why other fans often see us as arrogant.

As of now over the last four years the lad has scored more than Bobby in a significantly worse team.

I’m not saying he would be right for us but I think there’s a certain disrespect going on that’s not really warranted.


11.) 04 May 2021 10:47:10
I don't think it is arrogance at all. If the bar is to best Bobby's goal tally over 4 seasons then there will be a plethora of players to pick from but that doesn't mean the majority of them will be up to the level of playing for a club like Liverpool. Just because you score goals (not that many to be honest) for a lower league club doesn't mean he will rock up to Liverpool and score more, it could easily be the opposite.


12.) 04 May 2021 11:29:21
Again Irish, spot on. I think Rickie Lambert and Paul Konchesky prove that point, just because they were OK at a lower club doesn’t mean they can suddenly step up.


13.) 04 May 2021 14:53:03
And the point is you don’t know they can’t either.

For every Paul konchesky there is an Andy Robertson.


 

 

25 Apr 2021 15:39:03
One bright spot on our season is liverpools u18s obviously a long way to go for the young lads but we seem to have gems for the future an possibly near future, balagazi, fraundorf, mueselowski, kaide Gordon , layton Stewart, etc . There is lots of youngsters showing currently in the prem they can cut the mustard let's hope these young lads can follow suit.


1.) 25 Apr 2021 16:52:02
Was saying this last week Hails. there's more like Mabaya, Norris, Bradley and Woltmann too. Great group coming through from that team. Not to mention Elliott who could still be playing with them. Balagizi, Gordon and Musialowski are different gravy.


2.) 25 Apr 2021 17:58:36
I hope you 2 are right and there does look some promise. But this same come around every year and barely one player makes the step up to fist team regular. We have had 1 only in Klopp’s time. 2 if you count Jones who is not first choice but could well be next season.


3.) 25 Apr 2021 18:07:42
I'd still say 4 in Kelleher, Trent, Neco and Curtis (not even counting Harvey) . Anyone expecting to a team of 1st teamers at a club the size of Liverpools being unrealistic but if you can get a few 1st teamers and a group of kids good enough to fill out the squad your doing brilliantly. And over the next few years i think we could be well on our way to that.


 

 

20 Apr 2021 08:46:36
We know the foreign players cherish playing for there countries and deep down have more love for there nations, our Brazilian lads, mane, salah, vvd etc will they be put in a situation where they have to pick between country an club? for being threatened with not being able to play for there countries by fifa eufa if they participate in ESL.


1.) 20 Apr 2021 14:09:17
Interesting thought. The players must get appearance fees for playing international games right? But it would pale in comparison to the salary their clubs pay them. I think the majority of players would pick club over country if it came down to a straight choice of who pays your bills.

Bissouma is a must to replace gini but also we desperately need creativity and goals from midfield, curtis jones can help this but we need more, dare I say a Bruno fernandes type who I wanted an we should of got. Trent needs solid competition as does robbo all top 4 have this we don't. Its obvious we need a change up front an if Bobby an mane left I wudnt be surprised. All of the above is important plus a defender or 2 . I would say this is a rebuild an fxxk knows where the dosh is coming from .

We could sensibly rotate the cbs through the season, play horses for courses, nat Phillips can play against slow attacks but have a physical presence as can kabak, gomez konate can deal with fast paced attacks with a physical presence and virgil can deal with everything.
