Hi eds
I was wondering if Lucas was to leave who would be a potential replacement and what's the latest on borini

Suhayblfc

Ed01{Ed001's Note - we haven't really got anyone lined up for if Lucas goes. There is no latest on Borini right now, he wants to stay, hence him throwing himself round like a lunatic. He is desperate to stay and prove himself.}

Is it true that we're looking at bringing Torres back on loan?
Thanks in advance

I hope so on a free, he was loved here and I think he is very much a confidence player. You can't fault him wanting to leave us as he was given false promises abut big signings and he had a desire to win. I don't believe any of us would stay in the same job with no prospects when another job was offering us more money with more chance of achieving your goals. I think he could do a job for us for few seasons.

And who is going to pay his wages? He may be a free transfer, but someone still has to pay his wages. It certainly won't be LFC, remember, the Club are in the doghouse regarding FFP and wages is a big issue with respect to this.

Eds I understand we are looking at a January window with no buying and rightly so as why throw good money at bad under Rodgers. But do you feel that the board may address our worst position in the goalkeeper during this time or wait till the summer and if so do you know which keepers are being looked at?

Baz

Baz

Ed01{Ed001's Note - if the right one becomes available, I would expect the club to move for one. It is unlikely that will be the case. The most likely is one will get a pre-contract to join in the summer.}

Thanks ed. Do you have any idea as to who the club as identified as the ''Right keeper''?

Ed01{Ed001's Note - right now, as far as I can find out, there is no right keeper available for a January move. So no.}

He retired about 4 years ago and has been collecting the pension since.

Used to be one of the best in the PL but injuries ruined him, whether or not his groin was as bad as he thought who knows but his form never returned after.

Sean Ireland Sean Ireland

Ed01{Ed001's Note - he was awful, just another Mignolet, good shot stopper but appallingly bad at organising a defence hence why Newcastle's defence improved when he left. One of the most over rated keepers in the history of the game.}

do you think liverpool will ever go for a player like Kevin Strootman to solve the CDM position. However, i do think we need a very good goalkeeper, either Cech or Begovic for me. i think if we could get both then we will be a very strong team once again. (meaning Strootman & Cech)

Morning Eds. Question for Ed002, what's the situation with Delli Alli? Numerous reports on the net stating a package totalling £9 mill has been agreed for the Jan window with a loan back to MK Dons until the end of the season but there's been no announcement of this.

What's your understanding of the deal, if any? Given the current problems we're having with strikers, I would have thought an outlay on another loan back would only invite further criticism of Teds/ The Committees woeful management of the transfer budget. Don't get me wrong I'd love to see the kid in an LFC shirt, I think he's a great talent.

Ozone

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new Dele Alli that I am aware of and I am not aware of any transfer having been "agreed". However, Liverpool remain very keen, as we have discussed before, but there is interest from elsewhere including Spurs and West Ham, and particularly Newcastle.

A loan back to his club or elsewhere until, say, the end of next season makes sense. If he were to be at Liverpool I would think he would be no more than on the fringes for 19 months. A good buy for the future as you say Ozone, but his future would need to be mapped out.}

Hi Ed002,
any interest in Dortmund player/players or the manager from Liverpool? They`re struggling in the Bundesliga, maybe a January exodus is on the cards? thanks. merry christmas.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Dortmund may well lose 2 or 3 players in January but it won't be because of their league position and it won't be to Liverpool Tom.}

Hi everyone as you'll see at the top of the page the Eds have chosen a charity to donate to this Christmas, as we all know all the Eds work so hard for us all through out the year for free and as a thank you to them all it would be great if anyone who is In a position to and wants to makes a donation of any amount that's comfortable for them to give as a thank you.
Across the pages maybe we can raise a few hundred or even a few thousand :-) who knows what we can achieve together. Whether your able to give or not Merry Christmas everyone

Mighty reds

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Spurs have shown an interest in Fabian Delph and I suspect he has been considered by a number of other clubs including Liverpool, Newcastle and Arsenal as he will be out of contract at the end of this season. Aston Villa will attempt to have him sign a new contract.}

There have been speculations in local media, that Steaua keeper Giedrius Arlauskis might join an EPL club, that is looking for a keeper in January.

As Steaua is facing problems in Romania (they are under some legal issues, actually they lost the club name as well), it is possible they might be selling cheap. And i can not think of any other EPL club, that needs a keeper so much.

Maybe he could be a good competition for Migs. He was described by critics as "showing one of the best form in Europe" this autumn and he was awarded his country's footballer of the year just few days ago.

Zaibys

Ed02{Ed002's Note - No chance of a move to Liverpool. Perhaps Roma.}

( 2 )
( 3 )

I just translated the romanian site, and it was mentioned that the EPL club that had talks with the agent was indeed Liverpool. However, nothing has yet been agreed.
A couple of weeks ago in the interview keeper admitted that Roma and Fiorentina were interested, and that he himself is a LFC fan, but did not reveal anything else.

Ed's the usual suspects are again linked in various papers and websites with a move to us again this transfer window. With Shaqiri again being linked with a loan move. Surely we couldn't be lookin at adding more width with sterling, Markovic and Ibe (progressing well at Derby).
Any chances of us getting ( if anybody ) wide players or would the main focus be a striker? Cheers in advance for any reply.

Chardy01

Ed02{Ed002's Note - If Sterling were to be sold then perhaps.}

Hi Eds, I've been through the search function and just want your opinion on a replacement for Gerrard. He has maybe one season left in him at this level, if that. So where we are, if anywhere, in regards to Delli Alli? Everyone rates him and we've been constantly linked to him. Also, do we really have interest in Mateo Kovacic? Either/both would be IMO very decent replacements. He was unhappy at Inter, now they seem to want to offer him a new contract to fend off offers, from us? Thanks again.

barakdee

Ed01{Ed001's Note - Ali needs more than one season to be ready, right now it is felt best for his development to stay put.
As far as I am aware Kovacevic interest is none right now, for January anyway.}

Valdez and Ruddy are both as poor as the keepers we already have, I'd hope our alleged committee have more sense than to waste more money on either of those two.

hopeful_red hopeful_red

I'd target Sergio Romero in January and Karius in the summer as no2. I doubt Mignolet can come back as no1 and be fully trusted. Selling him in the summer makes more sense, he would make us more money than both Romero and Karius would cost together. Romero would be cheap in January and Loris Karius would be free in the summer. Both are low risk, Karius has the potential to go far.

Hi eds.

A few media outlets are reporting today that we're going in for Bony in Jan. I could believe this, if we were to offload Borini and maybe Ballotelli. Guessing he'll cost more than we could have paid for him in the summer.

Can you shed any light on this?

There is an answer to this question by Ed002 sometime back if I remember. Parlemo wants an extension but the player would be available for a sale at 50 mill Euros. Arsenal had declared interest but would put off from the asking price.

A very good gifted player similar to Aguero

Eds prob a ridiculous question but with rafa looking on the brink at napoli would we look to him as caretaker if he were to be sacked, before looking to de boer (or whoever) in the summer. Although i wasnt loving him before he left he certainly made us difficult to beat and was decent in the european cups, also did a decent job at chelsea. I know it would seem a step in the wrong direction but the ship needs to be steadied.

Charlesdance

Ed01{Ed001's Note - I know some sections of the media are suggesting it, and Rafa is desperate to come back himself, but there is still a number of influential people within the club who would be dead set against him coming back. All love Rafa as a man, but very few think he is the right man to move us forward, for similar reasons to it having been a mistake to let Kenny try his hand at caretaker manager.}

Went to a Club America game a few years back where he was the keeper. He was very popular with the crowd as he dove all over the place, although I thought it a bit more than needed. Definite flapper though on crosses/corners. For me it'd be like trading a younger Mignolet for a slightly older one.

Hey Eds,

I was wondering if Liverpool have shown any interest in Memphis Depay from PSV. He's a young guy with heaps of potential but he could make an instant impact on the team as well and I think he'd be an excellent signing.

oguichelaar

Ed02{Ed002's Note - PSV's Memphis Depay has attracted interest from a number of clubs with Manchester City, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Spurs, Marseille and Manchester United looking to see of a deal can be struck this past summer. Marseille signed Batshuayi and dropped their interest in Depay and UEFA sanctions will block any move from Manchester City before next summer. Newcastle and Spurs are know to still keeping an eye on the player with Manchester United and Everton being suggested as possible destinations as well. Someone very knowledgable about football in the Netherlands has suggested that a move to Newcastle would suit him better than the likes of Real Madrid or the Manchester sides as he would need a couple of years to establish himself in the first team and sitting on the bench will not help him at all. He has also advised against a move to Spurs, and his views are well enough thought of to likely remove them from being an option for the player himself.}

15 Dec 2014 18:10:51
Hey Eds, with Mignolet dropped you think we might fork out for Perin now?
His agent said no Italian club can afford him but he's said he really doesn't want to go abroad has he?

Thanks!

RedKev   RedKev

Ed02{Ed002's Note - My view on Perin has not changed. Up to now Liverpool has been looking for a goalkeeper on a pre-contract agreement in January. Now we are seeing claims that Liverpool will be bidding against Crystal Palace for the signature of John Ruddy in January.}

Whats your take on Ruddy? Would he suit our type of play? Is he good enough for Liverpool eds?

WikingRedNor

Ed01{Ed001's Note - he is awful, just another Mignolet - good at shot stopping but woefully deficient in every other area of a goalkeeper's art.}

Thanks ed, just what I thought.
Havent we learned anything this year regarding keepers, and why buy older keepers when you get perfectly great keepers with lots of talent AND quality.
Look how united dealt with their keeper "problem" and now they have what everyone else wants.

Ed01{Ed001's Note - no point us getting a young keeper without a decent keeping coach to bring him through....}

If the best our scouting team can come up with is John Ruddy, then they should all be sacked.

I kind of hope that we get turned over by Bournemouth just so that it means that Rogers and his croneys have to go.

I agree. I'd take a loss at B'mouth IF IT GUARANTEES the sack for Rodgers and all staff.

Good grief, Ruddy rumours can't be true. I agree that signing a young keeper is not the solution and Perin could have problems settling. The pre-contract plan would indicate Neto or Romero but perhaps things have got a bit more urgent since that was the way of thinking. Personally, I wouldn't be thrilled with either of those and firmly believe the position will only be sorted by spending a few quid to get Begovic or somehow convincing Cech to move up north.

Perin looks like a slightly taller, younger, more handsome, Italian version of Mignolet. Looks like he has had a very good breakout season with Genoa earning himself an Italian cap last month.

Agree a GK coach may be needed. Will need a couple of defensive coaches as priority!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - So you think the answer is to add three more coaches? Fortunately, the expectation is that the owners will accept the independent advice that won't simply suggest adding a Director of Football and a random number of new coaches.

They would probably need a new bandwagon to get to work in as well.}

Are Rulli and Romero out of contract next summer?

Romero not a great shot stopper but doesn't get bullied in the box, don't know much about Rulli except that he is being touted as one of the better 2nd tier young GKs (first tier being ter Stegen/Courtois/ De Gea)

Hi Eds,
I remember something about LFC looking at a couple of GKs out of contract next summer.

Do you know if Kraft (Hertha) has signed a new contract or will he be moving this summer?
Cheers

Gday Eds, are Inter still interested in Balotelli, Lucas or Borini? Any of their players we are interested in?

Thanks!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Lucas. There might also interest in Balotelli but only at less than half what LFC want.}

Liverpool want to recover what they paid for him? That seems pretty darned optimistic.

That Rogers has created a situation where Lucas, our best defensive midfield player, is looking to leave yet Allen, one of the least effective players to have ever pulled on a Liverpool shirt is going to stay, says everything about his management.
Honestly can see Bournemouth beating us this week, then there is no more BS for BR to hide behind.

Mr Dennis

If they are not complaining about paying an extra few million for players and loosing them after months of poor negotiations they are asking ridiculous amounts for a player who has done nothing to justify the price. *sigh*

Of course there is interest in Lucas. Should be first name on the team sheet at the moment.

Lucas played well in the last 4/5 matches and we remained unbeaten. Now Rodgers wants to sell him, like the way he got rid of Agger. Lucas/Agger replaced by Allen/Lovren says it all. I think before this manager does any further harm to our club, he must be sacked.

Ed002, are we looking to recover around £20-£25m and Inter willing to pay around £10-£12m then? Just trying to get context, as recovering all costs would include, among other things, agents fees, wages, signing on fees etc (thinking back to the post you have repeated a few times about associated fees). ?

Got to admit, if I am anywhere in the ballpark, then we are extremely optimistic and much as it pains me to lose so much money in such a short period of time, anything over £10m should be accepted and reinvested.

At around £100k per week (estimate) Ballo will cost us another £2.5m-£3m for the rest of the season and the club must take that into account when doing their sums.

What we have paid for him upto now is not relevant, what is relevant is what someone is willing to pay for him, what we will be saving going forward on him and whether that money can be better utilised elsewhere.

Hi Eds

Im aware that De Bour is looking for a bigger field ro manage in. Is he aware of our interest in him? i'm thinking we couldt have spoken to him as he is with Ajax but has there actually been any advances towards him at this stage other than us just considering him?

Dezmondo

Ed01{Ed001's Note - not since he rejected the chance to talk to us before we appointed Rodgers, but I am told that his recent comments about being ready and looking for a new challenge were actually in response to being sounded out about interest in the role. We have yet to make any contact with Ajax that I know of, nor any kind of meaningful contact, other than just a 'would you be interested if the job came up' way.}

I think he would be a good choice as we have lots of very promising youngsters that's need to be blended in out first team and i believe that's the way forward and it will save the clubs millions in the transfer window, also he seems a good young coach who is happy to play youngsters, his style of football is good and he is willing to come by the sounds of things.

All sounds like he could well be interested then mate. You still beleive it will be at end of season when we might make an approach for him or is there a chance with cutrent form it could well be January?

De Boers brother said today: ""It's a nice club. If Liverpool come now, he would certainly think about it. He would certainly not close the door immediately, like he did two years ago."

just heard from a reliable source who has been right consistently before, that sterling is leaving next month. .REALLY hope he is wrong. BR's team selections are baffling and his recent post match interviews are beyond ridiculous - he is losing credibility by constantly praising his players and their performances depite the fact it is blatant to EVERYBODY that neither performances nor results have been up to liverpool standards. they should have given kenny more time.2 wembley finals wasnt bad for first full season and he brought suarez in and would die for the club - kenny is smart enough where we know he would get it right in time.

Q for eds. Given that it looks likely Borini will be on his way in January, and depending on what you hear, possibly Mario as well if a buyer could be found, as it would appear that no further transfer funds will be made available other than the money from these potential sales, are you aware of any strikers we are scouting who would cost the same to buy or would we just persevere with what is left and gamble on Sturridge being fit?

Paolosondico

Ed02{Ed002's Note - The club will need to drop their financial expectations for the sale of Balotelli to around half to stand any chance of selling him in January. I am by no means sure that Borini will be sold, but he may well be available. If both were sold I would expect there is a chance that an alternate solution to be sought even though the club has Sturridge, Lambert and Yetsil with Origi arriving in the summer and Aspas returning. However, you have to ask yourself that if the owners are going to push ahead and replace the manager, would they want to be giving more money to Rodgers at this time?}

I wouldn't give him more money to spend in the same process even if he was staying long term. Too much money being blown and too many players not working out.

So Ed, the big question then. Are the club looking to replace BR and should we expect movement on that front in the immediate future? Can't believe they're waiting for the Carling Cup, but BR has failed one of his season objectives already. When do they decide he's going to miss the seconf?

Completely agree with you Ed002, the owners would be right not to give him any more, the problem is though as things stand we are a pretty poor side.

Do you think Rodgers will still be in the job in January Ed002? I'm not so sure he will be, especially if we lose to Bournemouth on Wednesday.

I don't know if Mario or borini will leave in January but how can aspas, yesil be an option ?

Aspas never gets an opportunity under Rodgers .he was loaned because he can't be shipped during summer.yesil haven't yet sattle his career in Liverpool.surely he can't be a option for the first team.

Strridge is injury prone, origi is just a kid who would need time to sattle. They aren't real options for
Liverpool any way.

When sturridge is fit its not a problem but when he is injured same quality goal scorer is needed .

Is it strange that I'm beginning to think we should have held on to Aspas? He never really got a chance with Sturridge and Suarez having the best form of their careers. In retrospect, I don't think Aspas would have been worse than the 2 we brought in or Borini. He certainly would have been more mobile than the other options.

ive just heard that Brad Jones is going to be staying in goal for the time being, now i don't know if its because we have a cup game or maybe mingolet is just getting a rest and extra training, or maybe he has had words with BR and he has been brendend, also i wonder how balo would have felt being on the bench in the 1st half when our team never had a striker in it, i reallt think BR does not have a clue on how to handle players, i remember when we bought Crouch and he never scored for month he still played week in week out, with BR leaving a striker on the bench and starting 11 not having a striker in then it would be baffeling to any striker in the world and it gives the wrong message out if i was balo i would be thinking WTF, maybe he is trying to be like the special one when he played without any strikers,
