Eds

Sorry I should of asked on last post.

Do you no what is likely to happen with Agger and Johnson. With our reported defensive additions would you think both of the above will move on with perhaps Bronby and Qpr possible destinations?

Thanks in advance

Dezmondo

{Ed002's Note - Agger might be of interest to Brondby but (a) have they got the money, and (b) there may well be far more attractive options at this time. I cannot answer about Johnson at this time.}

Thanks

What was the gist of the statement Ed? can't seem to find anything on it. Was it to do with the inevitability that he would one day end up playing for Real?

Coleby1007

{Ed002's Note - He made it clear he did not wish to move away from Spain to England. I really don't want to go through all of this again.}

I think we need to accept that if he turns out to be as good a player as they all say he will become, he'll be agitating for a move to a big spanish club within two seasons.
He probably sees lfc as a necessary step on his career path for the time being, but not as a long term club.
But hey, if he provides quality in the lb position for two seasons, and we can arrange matters so that we won't lose huge money on the deal, then I'm in favour personally.

Who cares what he said? He might well have been just pissed that the initial deal didn't go thru. As for wanting to play for Madrid? He will need to play really well for Liverpool then! Its a win win situation.

Manquillo can be his mate and Enrique can help him settle in. Plus he'll get no end of amusement from hearing BR speaking Spanish in a Northern Irish accent. :) If he succeeds, Real Madrid may well buy him, but we'll make a cool 10 million profit or so at least.

RedKev RedKev

A player angling for a move goes one of 2 ways, either they sulk and pout and don't perform until they get their way, or they try to play their heart out and throw everything they have into proving just how good they are to potential suitors.

I don't think Moreno has done enough in his career to do the first one so I expect him to give everything to prove to Real Madrid he is worth it. And that can only be good for us!

RedDawn

Hope he does try to become a player Madrid want. But it's a little hard to accept a player who doesn't really want to play for us.
Thought BR was keen on players who want to play for Liverpool, that's why he was impressed with Suso and Robinsons attitude. Wrong?

Hey ed, have you per chance heard anything about Konoplyanka interest being reignited? I have read the thread in RAWK that seems to have started the rumour, and it seemed to indicate that Kono is coming to the Premiership, not specifically to Liverpool, but Macca budging in does change things!
I would be very happy if true, but keeping the hopes down for now.

Macca sounds a little unsure on both last rumours, so I don't think anything is set in stone - I think it would be an either/or case with Bony and Kono, we simply don't need both. Konoplyanka will make sense if BR is sure that Sterling or Marko will be able to cover for striker if need be.

Hi eds
Love the site and the hard work you put in.

What do you think will happen with ibe, will he stay with the 1st team or go out on loan?

Also what's happening with the out goings, suso borini, reina, assaidi for example?

EvoLfc

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the plans are with Ibe. Suso was priced out of the move he wanted and will stay at the club. Liverpool want to move Reina on but there is no interest at the money being asked. Assaidi should go with Liverpool halving the initial asking price - but the kid needs to be realistic about his expectations of wages. A deal should be possible with Stoke. I still expect Borini to move on.}

(8)
(9)

Cheers Ed, I must admit I'm surprised there isn't more interest in Reina. He's at a good age for a keeper and I thought he was still pretty highly regarded around Europe.
Is it both his wages and the asking price that are putting clubs off, or is it just the price do you think?
I ask because its harder to sympathise with him not getting a move if he won't shift on his wage demands.

Hi Eds,

Do we have any interests in any keepers? Since Casillas and Cech are basically available, is there any chance we can swoop one of those two up?

Also, do you think Bony would answer the question regarding our forward lines? I am somehow not convinced by our attack after watching the game with City. To me only Sterling did well enough to offer us something different up front and I can see both Sturridge and Lambert being ineffective in many games.

Lastly, do you see Kelly taking Johnson's spot on the right back position? To me he looks way more assuring.

Cheers,

knightza

{Ed001's Note - yes, no, no idea, more likely Flanno.}

Kelly is no better than Johnson .I expect a new signing with Flanno as back up.

Eds is it true Dortmund are interested in taking Ilori on loan?

Bizarre if true, if Dortmund view him as good enough to play in their first team then surely he is good enough to play for us?

I sincerely hope if Moreno and Manquillo sign we see somewhat of a clear out of our defenders with the likes of Skrtel, Johnson, Enrique, Toure, Coates making way for Moreno, Flanno, Kelly, Manquillo, Ilori to try and stake a claim.

Despite always looking close to giving away a pen Skrtle was actually one of the best CB's in the EPL last season.
Coates is looking much improved although he still looks a bit short of the deired standard
Kelly is not good enough.Has gone backwards since his injury.

CR

(0)
(1)

I am unsure which games you have been watching CR.

Coates has looked slow and always will be slow. Yes he has looked decent on the friendlies but friendlies are generally played at a much slower pace than the premier league.

Kelly on the other hand, has looked solid, he has the physique to play CB, the technique to play RB and the positioning and pace to play both. I really hope he stays and gets given a shot. Would much rather him and Flanno fighting it out for the RB slot than getting in an unproven Spanish 21 yr old.

RedDawn

Kelly looked terrible v. City. Way off the pace and too afraid to come forward for fear of getting beaten back down the field. Johnson looked no better. Flanno getting RB by default at this point.

Hello Eds, any interest in Jovetic? I've always like him as a player since he smashed us at Fiorentina in the 2009/10 CL.
And given he's barely had a look in at City, mainly due to injury of course, I thought he may possibly be on the cards to leave City.

Sorry to just throw a random name out there Eds, I know even if he is available, he may be too expensive but there is no harm in asking I guess? ^_^

Cheers.

Sounds like good news but can't help but feel sorry for players like Kelly and Flanagan.

Murphas

I hope if this happens it means the end of Johnsons time with us and if possible Enrique as much as I feel he would be a useful squad player. I'd rather Flanagan get a chance at left back and Kelly at right back for the season.

lmred

(2)
(0)

These two come in and that should be job done. If we have a fair few players make an exodus, we'd be financially stable, filled with experience and youth, and everyone would be fighting for their place in the squad. The squad should be robust enough that a great player should be waiting in the wings every single game.

Mignolet, Reina, Jones
Flanagan, Johnson (out?), Manquillo, Kelly
Sakho, Lovren, Skrtel, Agger (out?), Coates (out?), Toure (out?), possibly Jones
Enrique, Moreno, Robinson (out?)
Markovic, Lallana
Henderson, Can, Gerrard, Lucas
Sterling, Coutinho, Ibe
Sturridge, Lambert, Borini (out?)

Add Bony and I think we finish top four easily enough. Someone big is going to slip, however -- pray that its United, Everton and Tottenham once again! We have a squad, even without another striker, that can beat the top teams around Europe. Just need to keep our core healthy and ride the tide of confidence that started last year. Can't wait to see our first 11 against Southampton!

I agree, so far we have done really good work in transfer window but I am not convinced with these two, especially with Manquillo. I think Flanagan is better than him anyway and if we manage to offload Johnson, Kelly is more than capable to play there, too. I don't know what to think about Moreno, from what I have seen he is improvment on Enrique, but Ed002 thinks he would be mistake so I am little worried about him, too. But hey, let's give them a chance

Is a keeper still on the agenda this summer, even as a low priority for now?

TSP

(9)
(23)

My guess is if only Reina were to go. We don't need four senior GKs. Also PR is on high wages.

I'd like to see him get a preseason game and if he is staying a clean slate. Jones is reliable but nothing more than backup/3rd. We've seen him in preseason now, know what he can do. Let's see now if Pepe still has it, or not.

EmreCanDo

(1)
(0)

Absolutely no chance of a clean slate for Reina. If you were Rodgers would you give him a second chance after he openly praised a former manager and said he was better than you? Reina has brought this all upon himself by thinking Barca were going to come in for him, he has completely burned any chances of playing for us ever again, unless Mignolet and Jones get injured at the same time and Rodgers is forced into playing him.

Scarface

(3)
(1)

If we are wanting to keep Pepe then I'd have thought we'd have seen him in one or two of the pre city games.

You'd have thought that if we were trying to show that we're prepared to hang onto Pepe, we'd have played him too.

By not playing him, it just shows BR does not want him and that will be reflected in any bids.

MM The return MM The return

I don't disagree Scarface. But if he is not going, then I would clear the air and yeah clean slate.
His comments were poor and I don't doubt what Rodgers is doing in shunning him, but if no buyers then wasting £100k a week when he could be useful is pointless. I think he is a better option then Jones

Reina

I agree with the above. Borini hopefully the money in would be a great return for a terribly average player whos a mid table team player at best. Toure is a gonner if we find someone. Lucas rumours I heard I agree he's vital to keep good team guy and a defensive midfielder like him could be vital to close out some big games. Kelly will stay I think, although its a make or break season for him. Reina needs to go considering his wages! Johnson i'd sell for anymoney. he's on 90k a week and can't defend! Surely there are more cost effective (moneyball) options

It seems as if you rate him highly ed

reet2107liverpool reet2107liverpool

{Ed001's Note - I saw a lot of potential in him, when I watched him play a number of times as a youngster. I haven't seen him recently, but Porto's record on youth development would suggest he will have come close to achieving the potential there. He is 23(?) I think, so a good age to really come good and hit top form, but not too old to be unable to adjust to fit our system.}

As ed001 rightly said Porto have one of the best records for developing young players, I rate Sandro and Danilo very highly, perhaps Danilo slightly more as he is quicker than Sandro which is pretty important for modern fullbacks.

I am certain that we would not meet Porto's asking price as they are notoriously high for most of their talent. Perhaps if Suso was still 'for sale' then we maybe could have come to an agreement, but it looks likely that he'll stay and fight for his place.

I would be made up with bony.

he is far better than remy in my opinion. he is a proven goal scorer in the english and dutch league (check out his overall game/goal ratio - its 210/110!) . he is very strong and great a heading a ball in the back of the net. he also has great feat and ideas when on the ball. Although his pace doesn't seem to be up there with remy's his long shots and finishing are superb. He brings a different factor if he was to be brought into our squad. I feel much more excited with this possibility. Plus I feel he would compliment Sturridge much better.

Cheers Macca, hope that comes off. He seems a pretty good striker and has pl experience, which takes some of the risk out of it.

I find it astonishing that 6 people have pressed the unbelievable button when this lad has said all along that the info he provides is what the players believe is going to happen. Why don't the 6 of you go back and view Macca's posts over the years and see how accurate the lad's info is.

He obviously has access to first hand info which he kindly shares on here when he knows something. I'd like to say thanks to Macca and how much I appreciate this great info you share with us. Cheers mate and thanks for the heads up regarding Bony, he will definitely be a good addition.

{Ed033's Note - it's possible that 1 or more of the 6 people are indicating that they don't want Bony, rather than disagreeing with Macca.

Have to agree although he would not have been my first choice at start of window. still think pedro would have been a great player to grab but anyhow, I do think we need another striker who will give us more than a handfull of goals

Im not sure that bony is going to do 20 goals but what he will do is keeping the ball up in offence. he is brutal strong and can hold away any defender I pl and cover the ball so the rest of the team can catch up with him up front, that is a very good skill of the game that he master and I think that would be valuable for us. plus he is a good striker with booth feet and head. I think he would cost quite a lot though.

IMH there are also many trolls from other sites that will agree or disagree just to be awkward. don't get me wrong Liverpool fans do it aswell. I think that's why they were removed from banter as it got a bit in sensitive at times (for instance on rip posts). Thank you anyway Macca nice to see you back.

How is Bony any different to Lambert? Both target men, strong, good with their feet. I guarantee we won't get top four. Now I await the reaction of others, saying I am not a true fan etc. In my opinion he is not good enough and as a result the top four is gone. Thanks for the update though Macca.

Bony will get at least 20 goals.

Reports from Swansea player's say Bony looks better than ever before. I think he's the perfect player to hold up the ball between our attacking midfield and Daniel. With Markovic and Sterling on the wings, and possibly Coutinho or Lallana behind, we would look very dangerous -- strong and quick on the break.

Can't wait to see if he does come in. A legitimate 30 goals (in all competitions) striker.

Never wanted Remy (too similar to Studge), Bony much better as can play as link up man. And he won't dive half as much.

Good move if less than 17m

Hi Eds, couple of questions regarding the fullbacks situation. 1- do any of you know what's happening with the Javier Manquillo deal that seemed to be on the verge of being completed 5/6 days ago, its gone pretty quiet but is that a result of wrapping up deals for Lovren and Origi? 2- Who is our number 1 left back target now? (presuming moreno deal is all but dead unless we stump up or they lower the asking price which hasn't happened so far).
As always thanks for the work and info always appreciated.

maplescouse

{Ed001's Note - I don't know what is happening with the Manquillo deal at all, sorry. As for number one left back target, that was Moreno. That won't change just because we don't get him, he was the number one target. Anyone else will always be at best number two target. We have stepped away from that deal though, the only chance it would be resurrected would be if his club decided they needed the money to strengthen other areas of the team. Our offer is still sat there for now. We did return to the Bertrand possibility, and looked at some lad from France, I don't know a name sorry and we have spoken to Porto again regarding Alex Sandro.}

When you say 'spoke again' regarding Alex Sandro our interest must be pretty sting then? DO you know the outcome of the talks?

Thanks

{Ed001's Note - no idea the outcome, though knowing Porto are not in desperate need to sell, I would expect we were priced out of a deal. Though they have recently signed left backs in preparation for him being sold.}

Without going into detail. How far apart are we with our valuation and what Seville want? For the layman fan like me all reports suggest we are around £4m. Given we will be playing Champs league and we are currently pretty cash rich, £4m doesn't seem a great amount in order to get our number 1 target in. Obviously this is an incredibly simplistic view but one I can't help get frustrated with as I feel full back is an area we were weak in last season and one where we can improve.

Thanks

Sturridge looks like the kind of player who would stay even if offered a bigger wage. Just my opinion anyway, sometimes it looks as if he's a local lad tbh, just loves being here. #redordead and everything.

I have no doubts he would stay, it would just be interesting to see whether international teams have paid attention to him, he certainly has the ability so was just curious as to who may have asked about his services.

Eds after reading the rumour re Lucas leaving on loan to Napoli, I wanted to ask would the club seriously consider a loan offer for him? I hope we wouldn't be that naive.

We are not blessed with too many defensive midfielders and although some posters might say Lucas isn't the best there is, he is a good player and I think we need to be careful not to dismantle our whole team by adding in too many new players.

If a good offer came in that the club felt it simply couldn't refuse then that's different, but a loan deal? That would be stupid I think.

anyone (especially the Eds) heard of any interest in anyone that's not being reported by the media? Does this ever even happen anymore? I think Assaidi was the last signing that took my by complete surprise.

RedJoel

{Ed001's Note - it does happen, mostly with youth signings, but sometimes signings do come out of nowhere. Very rarely with a club the size of Liverpool though.}

I consider any move that happens within the span of few days a "surprise". Typically, its well known who we are looking for and what position they will play.

I would be satisfied with a left back (likely Bertrand, who wouldn't be bad with two great center backs beside him and bit more regular football) ONLY. We only need an additional attacking player if Borini goes, and preferably an obvious upgrade if we make a move - Bony, in my opinion, constitutes an obvious upgrade.

Reus is injured and Dortmund don't want to lose him anyway. Shaqiri seems a lost cause, unless Pep outright told him something he didn't want to hear and now he's angling for a move. The latter in particular would be great on the left side of a front three, but that's what Markovic was purchased for, and I'd think Rodgers sees him as our long term player in that position -- though he obviously has a lot to prove.

Honestly, if I could make moves for our club, I'd do my best to find Johnson/Agger/Lucas a happy home and take this as an opportunity to lose their high wages. None of the three are automatic first picks anymore, especially in the case of Agger, heavily linked with Barca.

I'd keep Toure as 4th CB (Kelly 5th). Rotate the other 3 as needed.

Eds can you shed any light on wether this is true or not? I really hope this is true as IMO the lad is pure class and is going to get better and better, could see that at Basel as well as at münchen, proper bargain as well, especially considerin his world cup hat trick and classy displays, They normally put the price RIGHT up, I really hope this one true and will be well happy with the summer business if Brendan has pulled this one off an all!

Cheers mate, that's exactly what I thought judgin by what you and Ed002 had said in previous posts about the lad, just with the way this post was posted as matter of fact and not a rumour the excitement level went up. A quick google search reveals crunchsports and as the only sources reporting this in the last 14 hours so the excitement level went RIGHT DOWN again. Still hope this one turns out to be true tho.

I search for news on shaqiri all the time, because besides reus (which is more of a dream scenario, ) he's the best we can get in my opinion.

A few days ago rumours of us completing the deal resurfaced again. But then yestetday quotes from his brother came out saying he was no longer interested in leaving bayern :(

Hi Eds

Have we ever looked at Jordan Rhodes from Blackburn or Danny Inges from Burnley, I think both are great talents especially the later, I know they may be a risk considering they've only played championship level but do you think either could make the grade at the top level?

I think if it is a possibility we should pay it, but its not my money. I'm sure he could contribute now.

Sturridge, Origi, Lambert,
Markovic, Lallana, Sterling, Coutinho, Borini

That's enough attacking options for me.

Hi Eds,

May be reaching a bit here but used the search function and only relates to benzema coming to us with Falcao going to madrid,

So news has came out that Falcao could be available for 10 mill on a loan for a year with an extra 35 million the following season,

Are we interested in him? And not to talk money but could we afford him do you think as no doubt big spenders Monaco have him on some ridiculous wage?

Thanks

cialbray

Yes let's pay 10 mil to loan an injured player for a year. Why isn't everyone doing this!?
