Hey eds? Who's is this lato fella I've heard we are linked with from Valencia b team. Has it got any legs?

Thanks.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - I don't know who you are talking about sorry. I don't know of any Lato in the Valencia B side.}

25 Jul 2016 06:18:40
I believe he is talking about Antonio Latorre Grueso aka Toni Lato.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - young left back? I was expecting him to move into their first team this season. They have little interest in selling him, yet. They are working with Jorge Mendes now, cheap deals will be very unlikely.}

Rumours gathering pace that Liverpool will make one final offer of £8m to Leicester for ben chilwell.

I love it when rumours gather pace 😅.

Liverpool to bid one last time for Chilwell.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

25 Jul 2016 07:53:06
We know what they want ie £10 Million. It could be our last signinin in before we start on our departures. Stop arsing anout with £7 n £ 8 Million iffers n stump up. We have done OK on our selling for decent cash so far, can't have it bith ways. Get the £10 Mill on the table n if he is as good as rumours have it deal clised n a hopeful decent left back on our books. Especially if we get the £6 Mill rumoured for Smith.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Jul 2016 08:12:02
I have to agree, if we get him in early, hopefully fly him over to America, get to know the squad nice and early.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 17:43:17
Heard from a journalist that reports for Bradford City that they're interested in Brannagan? Surely he's better than league one? Any truth eds?

Believable1 Unbelievable3

{Ed001's Note - lots of clubs are interested in him, but it doesn't mean he will be going there.}

24 Jul 2016 12:53:01
If the fee for Smith is true then wow, to think he was out of contract and resigned for us little over a year ago!

Good business if he does leave.

Believable21 Unbelievable3

24 Jul 2016 10:18:32
Ed002 just heard Liverpool have made a bid for Jetro Willems (psv)? also staying with the Eridivise, have Liverpool scouted Vaclav Cerney of Ajax?

Believable1 Unbelievable3

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any bid for JW from Liverpool. Discussions with Monaco ended in nothing. Cerny is of interest to another EPL side but not Liverpool - he is certainly not EPL first team ready just yet but much is expected of him.}

24 Jul 2016 15:22:22
Is he Playing regularly in the first team?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 15:52:36
Was tipped as a top talent and very solid. Any idea of bid amount?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 19:29:43
@Max I've been reading just under £11m.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 19:45:27
Ed, you mentioned Cerny as a good option as a winger for us previously. I checked the search function but couldn't find much else about him, would you happen to know which EPL team holds an interest?

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Liverpool.}

24 Jul 2016 08:27:41
Ed,

If the brad Smith deal goes through, who do you think is most likely to replace him at this stage?

DevC90.

Believable7 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - I still think Chilwell.}

24 Jul 2016 08:44:15
Thanks ed appreciate the quick reply, I was hoping chilwell, I know he is not the finished article but he certainly looks like he has bags of potential.

Agree4 Disagree5

24 Jul 2016 09:28:27
I really want Chilwell he looks class, surprised we are squabbling over price, he seems really keen to join.

Agree7 Disagree2

24 Jul 2016 09:26:55
ED001, do u reckoning if we are letting Smith go then a replacement has been sought?

Baz.

Agree2 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - we have just bought a player who can cover left back, which means Smith was unlikely to be needed. We are still trying to bring in a specialist left back as well though.}

24 Jul 2016 10:25:27
Trust me it will be LB thar is not even mention in this site or others. A signing that will once again embarrass those who claim to be in the know.

Agree10 Disagree12

24 Jul 2016 10:48:51
Leekuanyew. What an embarrassing disrespectful thing to say what's it's obvious the editors on here clearly know more about what's going on than you! What correct information have you ever provided on this site for us to trust you?

Agree6 Disagree6

24 Jul 2016 11:01:54
Surprised we're letting Smith and Flano go from arguably the weakest 2 positions in our team, I think its quite poor.

Agree6 Disagree5

24 Jul 2016 11:25:37
Lee - if you don't like it, then you know where the door is. Get it?

Agree6 Disagree6

24 Jul 2016 11:34:42
Definitely going to use the money for Chilwell.

Agree1 Disagree5

24 Jul 2016 12:08:56
I can't believe Brad Smith could bring us 6 million.

Agree3 Disagree2

24 Jul 2016 13:51:44
I'm convinced it will be amavi from villa to replace smith.

Agree3 Disagree1

24 Jul 2016 14:48:43
Lee - wind it in love.

Agree6 Disagree3

25 Jul 2016 06:03:47
Sakho should also be able to provide emergency cover at left back.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 22:25:49
lfc and Bournemouth supposedly agreed a fee for Bradford Smith. around 6mil according to reports.

Have the Eds heard any rumours regarding Oscar Wendt to Liverpool? I remember him being linked with us years ago, but recently heard his name mentioned as a possible target, on another forum.

Agree0 Disagree4

{Ed002's Note - A Hodgson target when he first arrived? Sure, why the hell not.}

23 Jul 2016 22:59:46
damn predictive txt on me phone.

Agree5 Disagree3

23 Jul 2016 23:24:37
So potentially 22 mil for two fringe players. that's another plus for using the academy, of course you want to have them star for you but if there not deemed good ebough, once they have a good amount if appearances for a team such of ours, couting there age aswel, the fees are there for us to demand.

Ojo has a season or two now and if he doesn't maie it its another 10/ 13 mil just ib potebtial.

Agree6 Disagree2

24 Jul 2016 01:03:21
Thatd be the advantage of developing youngsters. Cyncis would say fsg buy youth players solely for the intention of selling for profit. But I don't believe this at all. If the player pushes on and can contribute at 1st team level then he will. But if not then at least ya haven't wasted 30-odd million on someone like benteke. flipsidee being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through.

Agree6 Disagree2

24 Jul 2016 02:10:37
Faithinworks, arevu saying no opportunities given to young players? Are u following liverpool at all?

Agree2 Disagree6

24 Jul 2016 03:33:38
I think you'll find what I said was - " flipside being that opportunities need to be given for the youngsters to impress, which does make it hard for them to break through. "

if that translates to "no opportunities given to young players" then I'm sorry, I can't help you.

Agree7 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 07:10:31
Its a complete myth about fsg buying young to sell at a profit.

All clubs buy for the academy and then any young players who we've bought for the starting 11 we've massively over paid for them ie firmino.

Agree2 Disagree4

24 Jul 2016 11:09:49
You think if we sold firmino now we wouldn't turn a profit? Karius, gruijic, Gomez, Ings, origi all players that if we sold in a few years we'd get more than we paid.

Agree2 Disagree1

24 Jul 2016 11:37:33
I believe we would make a profit on Roberto Firmino but have a revolutionary thought, let's not sell our top assets.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed041's Note - he washout best player in the second half of the season for me. If GW price went up after his poor showing last season RF value will of definitely increased.

24 Jul 2016 12:14:24
Fencey we would make a small profit yes but not the sort of profits people make out.

The way people go on is like fsg buy for a few mil and try and make a fortune.

Carrol didn't make anything, benteke won't either.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2016 08:04:07
Use of academies is always going to vary depending upon the size and wealth of the club. Smaller clubs, e. g. AFC Wimbledon, have a stated policy that they want to make half their first team home developed. They don't have the money to do anything else and can't afford to keep players around on good contracts as back ups.

But clubs like Liverpool are not going to be replacing half their first team squad every year or two so obviously most of the kids who come through the academy are going to be released or sold. That isn't a policy of signing them to sell them.

You would hope for 1 or 2 players good enough every few years realistically. But you can't just put the best player on the pitch on their own, they need a squad of around 14-15 each year they run a team. Realistically that is 14-15 lads who won't come through. That thins out post 16 but it still remains the case that the 17-21 year olds are almost all going to be released or sold. You can't keep them and bearing in mind you'll have fresh youngsters coming through this is just an ongoing cycle. If you can make some money from that natural cycle then that makes business sense but it still doesn't mean they are signed to be sold.

Even Chelsea you could argue aren't doing that, they have the cash to cast their net wider and sign in bucket loads of youngsters in the hope they find the odd one or two who are special. That they make money from loaning them out isn't necessarily why they do it.

Ironically, a kid wanting to play for a big club could be argued to be better off going into the set up at a much smaller club as that gives more chance of making it into the first team and at a younger age, which is the irony as then they have more chance of getting to a big team than a kid sitting in the age groups at the big club.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Right - "clubs like Liverpool are not going to be replacing half their first team squad every year or two".

25 Jul 2016 08:19:55
ED - ok change that to shouldn't be if they get their recruitment right first time around, should also say if you replace managers regularly you'll see big squad changes but rarely to bring through youngsters, in fact you may see lots of existing youth binned for an influx from the country of the new manager. Either way, not going to replace half the squad with academy products.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 22:34:23
Brad Smith to Bournemouth? Any truth.

Believable8 Unbelievable0

23 Jul 2016 22:51:23
Must have another left back line up if smith is being aloud to leave.

Agree8 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 23:28:54
Yeah would hope so. May use the money to pay that extra bit for Chilwell.

Agree7 Disagree1

23 Jul 2016 17:41:21
Hi Ed's and Red's

Any further report on Joe Allen moving along?

I'm a Swansea lad myself, and a lot of the talk from the fans here is that the club is expecting to sign him.

Always thought highly of the boy myself, I may be one of the few that would be sad to see him go after the effort he had put in the latter half of last season.

Just wondering if this is why there's been little update on the move to Stoke, is he holding out for the Swans to come back in for him?

Believable7 Unbelievable0

{Ed001's Note - it was because he took a break after the Euros, that's all. I expect something will happen next week.}

23 Jul 2016 22:31:20
If Joe wants to move back to Swansea then it will happen. My understanding is he's really torn. He's settled where he is, but has strong connections with Swansea and lots of family living locally. He's also tempted by a move abroad should an offer come in.

I was talking with someone very senior at Swansea recently and they are still keen, it's more a case of whether Joe wants that move.

Agree5 Disagree0

23 Jul 2016 20:17:47
Thanks Ed, please tell me that we are done with adding further CM's though?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - only for replacements now.}
