Is it true LFC want PSG Ezequiel Lavezzi ?
If so recruitment team has no meaning, the lad is too old now,
and i don't see him fit into BR system.
Tell me is not true, pls.

Our current right back situation is vastly over staffed in my opinion, with; Manquillo, Johnson, Flanno and McLaughlin.

I never understood why Rodgers brought in Manquillo in the first place, but are we planning on keeping him for the full two years?

Does anybody know if Flanno is going to be offered a new contract?

And somebody please tell me that Johnson is going to turn down this new contract offer?! If he is offered enough to stay with us and Flanno isn't offered a new contract, Rodgers will have officially lost his marbles, and you lot may argue but for this would actually be the final straw with Rodgers for me, as it demonstrates just how poorly our youngsters have been managed and I think it would speak volumes to others in the academy that no matter how hard you worked to force your way into the team (Flanno), you still won't get given the chance.

Also, I'm sure the Eds will agree, but really enjoying how quiet this January is

Cheers

Eds - With regards to the Echo story on Ojo going out on-loan? 1) do you know how high the interest is (does a Championship club want to take him)? 2) Does he have to wait till he's 18 (June) in other words till next season?

Ed02{Ed002's Note - He could make a youth loan to a lower league team but he would likely not get in most Championship sides. I would say he is too young and it may do more harm than good - remembering he still has to attend school etc..}

OK, so I know the source is the Daily Express, hence as reliable as me making it up. However, for reasons of completeness, they are reporting that Real Madrid are planning a £26m "swoop" for Raheem Sterling.

I would be very disappointed as, forget his worth on the market, he is quickly becoming a key player for us. Losing Suarez and then Stevie means that we cannot afford to lose another player who 'makes things happen'. In a few years time, when Ibe may have stepped up, so be it, but right now, we need Raheem more than we need £26m. Of course our hands may be forced by FFP.

Thanks Ed. They're also reporting the other one may be Chelsea. I'd be even more disappointed if we sold an 20yo England full England international to a direct competitor in our league! Can't really blame the player as, if he wants to win silverware, then, right now, he has more chance at Chelsea than us. But would still be really, really disappointed. How long has he got left to run on his current contract, Eds?

I know we don't discuss numbers but that's ridiculously low, we couldn't replace him for anything like that. double it and it's possible, but he has so much potential why would we sell him for the price of a really good player, not a possibly world class one?

zimbo

I know what you mean Zimbo, and that's my point. A player will have different values to different clubs. To us, right now, he's almost priceless. To other clubs, he may well represent £26m of outlay. Prime examples abound - Kroos, Shakiri and others have moved recently for much less than £26m. Is Sterling better than them? Subjective

I would say the goal v chelsea put his price up a bit so if we got say 35 million for him I would sell. If sturridge gets back to fitness that puts our front 3 as Sturridge, Coutinho and Lallana which is pretty good imo. Ibe to play of the bench or as a starter on rotation.

I'm sure the only reason Chelsea bought Torres for £50 million was because he scored 2 against them. In other news I hear they are looking to spend a further £30 million on Jon Stead after his goals at the weekend.

Hi eds,

Just wondering what's the update with Lavezzi now? And whether there's still interests in bringing in a goalkeeper for short term? (Judging from what Brendan said it's unlikely but I'd prefer to hear it from you as he sometimes talk rubbish)

Cheers

knightza

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I cannot see that Lavezzi would be added unless someone were to leave. There has been interest in several goalkeepers, but generally that has been in regards of those able to sign a pre-contract for the summer.}

Apparently there was a practice game today with the team against Chelsea vs let's say the fringe players. Balotelli & sturridge started upfront for the fringes.
Sturridge scored a hatrick and won it.

Don't know where to begin really. Perhaps with the simple fact he was plenty good enough for the BPL when he made 23 appearances and we almost won it? Dude had a build up of fluid on his knee and had arthoscopic surgery; other than that, he's been a class professional and, IMO, he's the missing piece to our defense.

I wish fellow fans would take off their blinkers with regards to JF.
He has no pace or technical ability and what annoys me he turns his back on anyone who goes to shoot -so much for his bravery.
Would he get into a top 4 team at the moment I doubt it . Although Roy did call him up- big deal look at other players called up hardly class acts.
We need to make room with youngsters showing potential and no not to throw them into the first team and hope for the best. Brendan has given more opportunities to young players than previous managers, just being in the first team squad and training with them is all education for them.

It's also a myth that you have to be big to be strong, nope, look at Sterling. Pound for pound harder to push off the ball than anyone. Flanno's tackles have a lot of force in them. But yes he isn't huge huge, tall and very fast.

The RB's in the league I'd start over Flanagan are: Ivanovic, Coleman, Zabaletta, possibly Clyne and if Sagna returns to his form of two years ago, maybe him. And he's the youngest in that list.

I'm a fan, but in the present system of 3-4-2-1, where does he fit in, not sure he could do wing back, but would be fine in a flat back 4! End of the day, he needs a new contract, so if we do end up selling, we get 'something' for him!

Im a season ticket holder from county road and went to about a dozen away games last season so to answer yes I watch the game. Speaking of last season how many goals did we concede? I know its not his fault but what does it say? our defence is not good enough. Check out the facts aswel, he was the most taken on player in the whole league last season. He is also blaming Liverpools physios for his knee. He was complaining about it last season and it was only when he went to Miami with England that the whole problem was recognised, he's actually hired his own specialist from London to look after him rather than Liverpool. All this aside, I would like to see him play before the end of the season and see how he gets on but it does look like he's not getting a new contract. Everyone complaining would have said the same about Kelly aswel last season and he's hardly set the world alight at palace.

He's infinitely better than Johnson who has been offered a contract. Would be gutted to see the lad go, he's a good defender, a battler and would run through walls for the club. Honestly, if Johnson stays, Flanagan goes and Rodgers keeps his job I think i won't bother renewing my season ticket next year.

Hi Ed's, Ballotelli is a quality player, just not suited to the style of Liverpool. I assume that rather than unwilling he is unable to adapt to the demands of the team. Also being a high profile player with a massive ego, the danger is he will bring negativity to the dressing room. With so many young players in the squad, that is something we could do without. Therefore, a compromise for his exit should be reached.

Good morning,

I have heard that Liverpool are playing a dangerous game with regard to sterling's new contract.

We are absolutely appalling with the dealings with regard to new contracts and signings.

Apparently the reason sterling's agent will not agree the new contract is not because of the money being offered but the non financial terms of the contract.

Liverpool do not want him to go to a premier league competitor.

If we continue to make demands then we will no doubt alienate yet another player.

Cheers

This has got nothing to do with Liverpool and everything to do with the player and his agent.

Be very, very clear here: Sterling has not decided whether he will stay or go.

He has a number of choices: quietly agitate for a transfer, let his contract run down etc etc

You cannot "force" players to sign contracts; some fans seem to think that because their beloved club offers a new deal, the player will automatically sign it.

Contracts mean two things in a way, how much the player will earn and how much we can get for the player when/if he leaves, so if he has problems with what's put in front on him, stop negotiations until his agent/player sees sense! This is starting to get embarrassing for both the player and club and needs finalising now!

I think it is fair enough to try and have a clause in his contract that he won't be sold to a PL club. If that is indeed the case. It doesn't seem that odd to me.

How can a contract not have anything to do with value of a player when he leaves? Firstly there are buyout clauses, whether you say they mean anything or not. Fact is they exist and have been used.
Secondly, if a club has a player they do not need to sell and would rather not sell you saying having that player on contract with 10 months to go or 3yrs makes no difference to the value the club would accept if the player pushes to go?

The "New FSG" types of contracts are performance based. Rafa had attracted his signings on huge basic wages whether they played or not, whether they performed or not, they would get their huge salaries. And for a team not consistently in the championsleague it is not financially viable nor good business practice to hand out contracts with massive basics. That is what drove the club almost to bankruptcy. FSG's number 1 objective was to get rid of all the huge basics. One of the reasons agger, reina etc was moved on. Johnson surely has been offered a new contract but with a massive reduction in basic with high performance bonus which he refuses to take. Only SKrtel, Gerrard, and Lucas remain on these huge basics. FSG has all the newcomers on the new style performance contracts and sterling(or his agent) feels why sign when he can get a better basic elsewhere(and the agent gets a better cut off a basic). But this type of contracts will keep us financially sound and the players hungry for success.

ED001, can you see a resolve soon? I can't imagine we would want him to leave or go into a final year of contract. So will he eventually get what he wants or are LFC more stubborn here days like no player bigger then club etc?

How do you see this playing out, not looking to hold you to your word, just appreciate your insight.

IF Brenden is still in charge and we still play 3-4-3, I think Wisdom could take Cans place at RCB. Move Can into midfield to replace Lucas if sold or Gerrard.
Be happy with two from this lot in the middle next season
Can, Hendo, Rossiter and Lucas

Like the idea of Can moving a little more forward. For sure Rossiter will come into the frame but i think it's a month were Brendan get's to show boat the young talent and move on for loan's to progress there potential. It's nice to see we finally got a group of lad's that will grow together, hopefully they will stay for the long term.

Hi eds

Not sure this is too Liverpool telated, although I have a feeling Rodgers tried to sign him before.

Just read jack corks contract will be out in the summer and he hasn't signed a new one. Any likelihood he could be heading out way or somewhere else? Didn't Rodgers try get him before Allen - or am I mistaken.

Many thanks

Hi Eds,

Keep up the good work!

Just wondering if you have any news on Sami Kheidra?

in my opinion could be the missing piece to the puzzle especially if Lucas does go. I know he would want a big singing on Fee and probably £150,000 a week but you getting a world cup winner with vast experience and someone who could help Emre Can become a world class player seem like a bargain.

Thanks

Don't understand how we have sufficient cover if we did Lucas wouldn't be playing now and it's no coincidence that since he's come back into the team we have done a lot better it would be a massive mistake to let him leave.

All I can say, is with all due respect to a player who's handled himself brilliantly on and off the pitch, is that he commands a fee that accurately represents just how important he is to the club.

If we sell him cheap, I will be livid.

Agreed, understand he might want to go but at least make sure we cover the cost of a good Cdm to replace. One of the rare ones where we're not a willing seller (we have enough of those!) and really need the player with Can tied up at RB until Flanno back (or can Wisdom be recalled?)

He's played 640 minutes in the league from January 2014 until around the end of November across 31 games, including being left out of the match day lineup 5 of our first 10 games this season. Hard to blame him for perhaps feeling a tad underutilized as he's a very good player and for me him not playing more last calendar year was foolish.

Lucus is playing well and is a very important player. There is no reason for him to leave and I'm sure he won't! I can't see him taking a step down to play for Inter. He's probably just welcoming the interest as any player would as it gives him more power!

Mas Luongo (over at Swindon Town) has been one of the best players of the Asian Cup Tournament thus far.

I just saw an interview with the manager who said Mas will be leaving Swindon in the summer.

This isn't from a Liverpool perspective, just wondering what Premiership clubs or abroad are after him?

Cheers lads,

GM.

A few championship clubs have been in touch with Swindon.
One club had a go, but still squabbling over the fee that was asked. Was either Wolves or Watford. I doubt they'll lower the fee. So I'd expect him to see out the season, as promotion could change things.

Either way, there is reportedly a lot of interest. I've just not heard of anything solid from PL clubs as yet.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Manchester City are looking for James Milner to agree a new contract. There is interest from Valencia and there may be interest from Liverpool - his wage demands might be an issue.

Liverpool are overrun with centre backs and have no interest in Rudiger.}
