Ed002, I know you talked about Pedro's availability in the past, and I still don't know why we did not make any move to sign him. Do you think that would change in January? I just read that Liverpool may be interested in Pedro in January, but I wanted to run it by you.
A long season ahead!
Thanks, Ed.

Yep, the Express are running that story. Ed002 do you know whether we inquired about his availability during the summer? and if so what happened? You seemed to imply at the time that a deal could have been brokered? However, I agree with you, and I think that ship has now probably sailed, unfortunately.
Regards

Afternoon ED's and Reds,

Been away for a long time (Master's degree) and missed all the excitement of new players.

Big Mario! I'm excited about him and can't wait to see Lallana come into the mix.

Disappointing result against Citeh but some positives from the performance and good three points against Spurs!

Ed002 - Can see you're still giving Brendan a load of stick! Ha.

ED can you tell me whether we have had any legitimate links with players for January? I've read through the site and it looks like we're looking for a new keeper?

Cheers.

Well, to be honest I can't blame Ed002 for giving BR the stick seeing how we performed against Villa. I guess Rodgers has lived up to his horrendous reputation in summer transfer dealings yet again. Can see this being a long and painful season.

Ed002, quick question about the Suso thing.

As he is under 24, and we have surely offered him an extension atleast matching his current wage - if he was to move to another club on a "free" wouldn't we be due some compensation?

hi eds,

been seeing us linked to kramer the past few days, wonder if there's any truth in it?

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Bayer Leverkusen are looking for a January auction. I am aware of some interest from clubs and maybe Liverpool will be interested. Seems speculative at this time.}

If BR wants him, it is probably bcoz Lucas will be moving on as soon as January. Not sure Kramer would be much of an upgrade though.

I sincerely hope not as Suso will become a world beater and should be given a chance with us. He can operate on either wing but is best playing the number 19 role, which to me suggests he is as versatile as Brendan likes our players to be.

I don't see how he can leave in January as he has a contract until the summer.

Maybe Milan will sign a pre-contract with him in January and he will leave in the summer. If Milan want him to join in January, they will have to buy him, probably for a amount much less than what FC Porto were willing to pay last summer.

All in all, LFC have very nicely frucked this up.

The real AG

I have to agree with you The real AG, anybody who thinks this isn't going to end up with us loosing out is a fool. Facts are everyone thinks he's a great player but he never even makes the bench. I to am one of these people that rate him highly but if Milan are looking at him I can see him going, maybe he will be our Pogba, maybe he wont. There must however be a reason that he doesn't make the team, and if that's because he's not good enough then fine, but I think he at least deserves a chance.

Ed001 if it were up to would you bring Valdes in?

I can't decide one way or the other, I think he's a solid keeper and obviously his distribution far exceeds Mignolet's and perhaps he could help improve Mignolet.

DanTD

Ed01{Ed001's Note - no, I don't rate him as a goalkeeper at all. He is good with the ball, but his primary job is keeping the ball out of the net, which he is extremely average at. It doesn't help that he is poor at organising the defence in front of him as well. For me, the best keepers organise the defence at set plays and in open play to reduce the number of shots they have to face. Very few keepers seem able to do that any more, the likes of Clem and Shilton, who were fantastic at that, seem to have died out. Valdes is one of the worst around at it though. I know these days the coaches just concentrate on a player's positioning and improving their reflexes etc, but there really should be more emphasis on the organisation. A keeper is in a great position to read the game and see threats that his defenders can't always see. Oh and they should stop having a defender come back to protect them on the line, if they can't deal with a player blocking them from a corner then they should not be playing professional football.}

I understand that he is still recovering from the cruciate ligament knee injury he sustained in March. Is there any idea as to when he'd actually be able to play again, let alone match fit. I wouldn't want us to end up in the kind of situation West Ham are with Andy Carroll; shelling out massive wages to a player who's perennially sidelined due to injury. Valdes' fitness is clearly dubious at best just now. Ed002 said he could be out for "months". I think it's a really bad idea, personally.

RedHustle

Ed02{Ed002's Note - It has been suggested he will be fully fit by November.}

(1)
(1)

I tend to agree with Ed001, Valdes is average at best.

Save the wage bill, keep Jones as back up and see where we are in Jan. We don't want a chump on the bench costing us a weekly salary.

Bazzaa

I respectfully disagree, I think he will bring a wealth of experience to a youthful defence. His winning mentality and his drive to prove a point, that he can still be Spain's number 1 keeper, means he's got hunger and these are the qualities Rodgers likes in his players.

Good Evening Eds,

I know LFC were/are looking at Victor Valdes who is a 'free agent'. I was wondering whether LFC are looking at any other 'free agents' to bring in as potential cover? though I'm hoping that BR brings in some of the youth from the Academy this season.

Kash   Kash

Apart from competition in goal, we have decent squad depth for the first time in about 10 years or more, dipping into the free agent market for the sake of it is the last thing we need to be doing.

Suso and ilori.

Also with plenty more games this year, can you see debuts being given to Pelosi and Rossiter

Thanks as always

Davies

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Suso is still at the club. If the club and the player cannot agree a new contract Liverpool will look to move him on in January rather than have him walk in the summer. Ilori is on loan in France at Bordeaux. I suspect he might well look to move on next summer.}

Would be hard to blame Ilori, honestly, if he wanted to move on somewhere else. I suspect if he had known he would get nowhere near the first team and instead go on loan to random locations around Europe, he might well have stayed where he was.

He has said he wants to play for Liverpool yes I agree he is not good enough for us but you have to see both sides of the coin, I personally think he is scared that this is his last chance and he doesn't want to lose it. if you play football and Liverpool signed you would you?

To quote Simon Yeend in today's Express. "Liverpool have lined up a move for Victor Valdes the former Barcelona goalkeeper!" He then goes on to write. "To leave Simon Mignolet FIGHTING FOR HIS ANFIELD FUTURE!" Is this person for real? Valdes will be 33 at the start of 2015 and is currently out of action with a cruciate knee ligament injury. So we will sign an unfit keeper and ditch Mignolet to leave our options Brad [ Fumblefingers ] Jones and Valdes? I hear more sense on this website than from the Express so PLEASE tell me we aren't looking at an injured "experienced" and over the hill keeper who is a free agent now!

The Plank

Ed02{Ed002's Note - You are completely correct Plank. A deal for Romero seemed to be in hand a couple of days ago and could well be announced later today or tomorrow. It makes little sense to me, but there you go.}

(3)
(6)

According to Tony Barrett at The Times - Rodgers is willing to wait for Valdes to prove his fitness (November).

Presumably we would then hang on to Ward until then before a much needed loan into the Football League. (Giving us the same 3 GK as last year)

But it seems like a gamble and I'd rather sign Romero now.

DP

Victor Valdes is a top top keeper, you don't be No1 keeper for Barca for the past 8 years. He is 33, but keepers are a their prime around this age. Yes he has an injury, but so did Falcao and others. He will be back fit, his kicking and passing is better than Migs, his awareness on crosses is better, he doesn't flap as much as Migs or Reina.

He will provide competition and will be much more confident in the Champions league matches, which Migs has no eperience of. In Brendan we trust!

rizlabenitez

Valdez is nowhere near a top keeper, he's got no presence, doesn't command his area, has awful handling and gets beaten too easily. Hope we avoid like the plague. As for being Barca's keeper for so long, look at it like this, that Barca team were so good that Taibi could have played for them and looked good, Valdez got found out as Barca hit the decline.

Edd002, can I ask a question my good friend ;). Falcoa( fantastic striker) will sign for united. Obviously without figures, would falcoa had he joined Chelsea or Liverpool just aa examples signed on the same terms? a lot of journos previously stated falcoa was way too expensive( large loan fee and wages) does that apply to the United move?

Big Al

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Falcao was offered to four English sides after it became clear his preferred move to Real Madrid would not be possible. In summary:

Last Wednesday in Monaco the club put a price on Falcao for a sale - with the expectation that Real Madrid (where he wishes to move to) would pay it. Real Madrid were concerned that at his age the asking price was far too high as were the wages. There were also discussions with Juventus and with Valencia. There have been approaches made to four English clubs - Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City. The situation as I understand it this morning is that:
- Chelsea saw him as way too expensive a package and went for Remy as their first choice (Destro) was not possible.
- Arsenal considered his age, his price, the possibility of a loan price and his wages and whilst they would like the player, seem to be trying to tie up the permanent transfer of another player instead.
- Manchester City were not interested in buying him at the offered price but would have consider a loan to buy - but there have a major concern over his knee and they want a clause which will drastically reduce his wages and the loan fee should it turn out to be a problem.
- Manchester United were interested but again the price and wages are an issue. On Wednesday Manchester United used a third party in discussions and I understand that third party was again involved last night in trying to broker a deal that might be acceptable. I suggested earlier that if the club want a deal done today then they will likely need to concede most of the financial negotiations - and that is what they have likely done. Subject to a medical I would expect this to go through.

The real killer here is the wages and the ad ons and the payment to certain agents, leeches, representatives and super agents - and a commitment to buy in the future (there will be a get out clause). I cannot see that Arsenal, Chelsea, Juventus or Liverpool would get involved with him at that level financially.}

Cheers for the info Ed

Do you know whether the transfer to Utd would be a loan, permanent or loand with an option/obligation to buy?

Appreciate all the hard work, bet you can't wait for the window to shut

quackers94

Ed02{Ed002's Note - It will be a loan with a commitment to buy subject to x, y and z.}

Hi Ed, great information there. Falcao is world class but Monaco seems to be desperately pushing him to every big clubs, and Manchester United seems to be desperate enough to take him on loan with a mandatory buy-in deal.

Is Monaco pushing this deal through because of financial or medical reasons?

kwkhong kwkhong

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Neither, he wants out and his agent is facilitating it. Nothing more.}

Assaidi to stoke on today, will be a 1 year loan

Cole25

Why is Assaidi being greedy he isn't even getting £70kpw at Liverpool yet he won't join stoke on a permanent deal.

Haych Haych

Ed02{Ed002's Note - It is critical the club shifts some out today, Coates is all but done I understand, but these loans means the headache shifts to next year as these are players the club wishes to sell not loan.}

Eds, if a keeper is the outstanding signing what about Cech, is he gone from Chelsea or is he an option.
Lots on here stating that in the end the player makes the decision not the club so why not make him a offer and see what happens

Mcgoveb   Mcgoveb

Ed02{Ed002's Note - That would be tapping up of course. Liverpool would need to speak with Chelsea, not Petr Cech.}

Ed, do you see these as the likely destination, if any for the following players.
Borini-Inter
Lucas-Napoli
Coates- Sunderland

Have you heard anything recent on Assaidi or Suso.

Also is there a relatively good chance that Romero will arrive at Liverpool tomorrow.

Thanks in advance
Ollivander

ollivander   ollivander

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will be looking to move players out today - sales are just possible, loans more likely, released from contract is possible as well. The whole Assaidi situation has dragged on and his wage demands fouled up a move to Stoke after Liverpool dropped the asking price. Borini and Coates could both end up at Sunderland - and potentially both on loan. Coates turned down a move to Italy whilst that is what Borini wants. If Lucas were to go today, Turkey might be the best option. Suso should have gotten his wish to join Porto. Certainly I would expect news of players moving on today.}

Eds, I'm sure I heard somewhere that Sunderland wouldn't get both Borini and Coates on loan as you're not allowed to loan 2 players from the same club? Is this correct?

Agree with above Romero is rubbish, I did see they are looking at Valdes on a free. Also, I suspect we need another central midfielder. Particularly, if Lucas is moved on.

Hi eds, sorry if this has already been answered but do you believe we will sing Romero before the deadline? I'm not sure we need him but just curious as to whether to keep an eye out for a signing while I'm bored at work!

Ed002, sorry if this question has already been asked.

With a lot of talk about the debt incurred by Liverpool's 'spending spree' this summer, and the subsequent effect on meeting FFP regulations with the added wages, cost of the player etc., how does a club like Real Madrid manage to avoid breaking the FFP rules?

Is it purely down to TV revenue and big sponsorship deals?

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid has a wage -related issue in respect of FFP this season as well.}

ssn reporting that Liverpool have agreed a fee for Sergio Romero and they are discussing personal terms with his agent. Both parties are keen on the move but Romero wage demands are seemingly the only problem at the moment.

Good international class keeper that will allow good competition for Mignolet but just feel Liverpool are going for a cheap option rather than a goalkeeper that could give Mignolet real competition and take his place?

Maybe that's not what we need, who am I to say anyway.

Blinkey

Yeah, I don't think he was needed tbh, we should just wait until jan or next summer and get a better keeper straight away

I completely agree with you Blinkey, Romero is an amazing shot stopper like Mignolet but is as poor as Mig with the ball at his feet.

So let's say for instance, Mignolet doesn't something daft and gets himself sent off. Can we rely on Brad Jones against, say, Madrid in the Champions league?

i think he's a canny backup, with plenty of experience, and still relatively young in goalkeeping terms.

Are the Daniel Agger to Brondby for £3m rumours true?

decodeko

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

(47)

Nice gesture from Liverpool. He is worth a lot more but I presume that is the most Brondby could possibly pay, and it is the only club he wants to join.

Great servant and deserves to be treated with such respect. Could easily have found another club who would pay him more.

decodeko

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Nobody has made any offers of a "lot more" for him.}

Can't you just let me believe this is a gesture of respect to a long-serving player, rather than taking the only offer on the table to get him off our payroll?!

Thanks Ed

decodeko

Surprising that no one has bid even a cheeky £5m for him, even if he only plays half the games, he is quality when he actually plays. Perhaps therein lies the problem, he wants a stable contract and clubs will be scared off by his fitness issues and want to pay per game. does anyone in the world actually have a pay per game contract? Or at least a contract heavily based on actual appearances?

emanuel

(0)
(0)

Maybe no the bids came in because he made it clear through his agent, that he wouldn't join any English team or European team that could challenge Liverpool, and maybe he just wanted to go back home.
Maybe that's why no "big" teams bid for him.

PC72

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Yeah, right.}

What a sad sad day. How Lovren is worth 20m and Agger only 3m baffles me.

Fowler

At least it gets £100,000 a week of the wage bill. He hasn't been good for about 3 years or so. Good deal imo.

"The opportunity arose for me to return home to Brondby and at this stage of my career it felt like the right decision for me.

"I wouldn't leave here to go anywhere else and that has been proven by my actions in recent seasons - I have turned down many offers to move to other Premier League and European clubs."

Guess that clears it up, although he hasn't mentioned any other teams making offers in THIS window and this would go with Ed's statement, it's still strange that no one has tried though.

Good luck to the lad, what a great servant he was.

Daniel, class right to the end of his Liverpool career. Could have gone to many many clubs, and got very good wages, but chose to return home, on a fraction of the wage.

And utter class shown by Liverpool in granting his wish.

Sad to see him go, but pleased to see him go in such a way that will forever keep him in the hearts of Liverpool fans, and forever keep the club in his heart.

Are we still looking to move Borini on Eds or is there a chance he may still be with us this season?

Dezmondo

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want Borini to leave.}

Is that with or without a kick in the balls? because if it's with, we should charge more for the extras.

Ed does he really think he's going to get a look in at Anfield or is it because he's going to get less pay at Sunderland

Philistine

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool (Rodgers) bought him and he feels he wants a chance.}

Eds002 if borini were to move on would the club be looking to replace him so late in the window

Redsimmo

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so.}

Tbh Ed he hasn't really been given that chance by Rodgers. Sham really as IMO he could of done a decent job. If Coates go's to Sunderland on loan then does that mean they will have to buy Borini out right and not loan him?

Dezmondo

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Sunderland?}

(1)

I like him but don't think he would be given enough of a chance to prove his worth. I think he is a good player but in my opinion will never be a prolific goal scoring striker. Better to get rid now whilst he is worth more and also we would save on his wages. Just makes good business sense.

Redwin

Of course he was given a chance the problem is he never even looked like scoring.
