Just wondering on the eds take on the supposed preference of the Norwegian 15yr old lad? Apparently he wants to sign for lfc, do the eds know of any interest from us or any info regarding the possibility of him joining?

Dmj1978

Ed01{Ed001's Note - everyone is interested in him. He is standing out as a class apart at his level. He is a big Liverpool fan so there is every chance if we actually do make a bid.}

The thing thou is that his father and himself ( Martin ). Both have said in Norwegian media, that it is absoloutly not if interest to join a club at akademy level ( reserves ). He now playes for the first team and that is what he will be, so 2 days ago they said " He will join a team where he is guaranteed first team fotball ".

Dont thing brendan will go for that thou.

Here is today's poll for u eds. Should we sell balotelli in January

Borini has to go then btw so heads up to his agent- do u no if he is trying to get a deal done behind the scenes now?

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Rodgers has screwed Borinin as he has with so many other players - I would not be at all surprised by him leaving in January. I cannot see Balotelli leaving in January.}

Dont see why he couldn't try borini up front with balotelli. It can't be any worse.

As frustrating as Balotelli has been he would be better with a striker alongside him. Borini might not be everyone's cup of tea but he is what we have available right now. It frustrates me to see how stubborn BR can be at times, alienating players benefits no one.

He could be out for a while, first scans were inconclusive so will be sent to a specialist, hence why Brad Smith has been recalled from his loan.

Hey Ed, was just wondering with sturridge being injured again do you see Liverpool signing a forward in January or staying with what they have

Ed01{Ed001's Note - not sure how an injury in October will be relevant to the January window?}

We have 4 strikers in the squad, 1 on loan.

Kaizer

Sure, we have 4 strikers but only 1 is world class and he is as you say made of glass. Move Borini on in january and get a flexible, pacy world class forward such as Reus, Pedro, Lavezzi or Lacazette.

On a different note, has Brendan ever used Henderson as CDM?

The time to get the Lacazette's and Pedro's of the world was in the summer. We bought Balotelli and Lambert.

That's exactly why people in charge of liverpool transfers must be fired. Lovren, Lallana, Can, Balotelli, Markovic. That's 5 players we bought for around 100m who would barely cut the mustard at blackburn rovers. Who pays for this ultimately? Fans. And the fans demand action.

He's scored or made 5 goals in 7 games in Ligue 1, and by all accounts he is playing with great confidence.

Leave him there for a season learning the game.

We should not be clamouring to sign a 19yr old for a hefty fee when he is coming 6 months later anyway, would be foolish.

Valdes has not rejected a trial his agent has come out and said that these reports are fake;

agent Gines Carvajal told Sport: "Liverpool didn't ask us to train for four days. We haven't rejected it because it [the story] is false.

"Neither Brendan Rodgers nor Liverpool have ever made us this proposal, at any time."

No need to panic boys

barnesjnr777

Not convinced Valdes is the answer to the problems at the back. If he does not pass the fitness program given to him by the club, he should not be signed.Cech would be a brilliant signing though a tad too unrealistic.

Indian Buzzer

We definitely need a new keeper, I'm not convinced at all by Mignolet. I do believe Hart and Cech would be better options but maybe unachievable ones Valdes is a good option and for free is worth the risk as long as he is t demanding ridiculous wages.

Could anyone help me decide about Valdes, the latest reports are conflicting, either he has lost the plot and is not wanted or it would be a great deal? he is being hawked around according to reports on the internet and press, now the agents have got some interest in him they are starting with the demands, If i were about to pay him good wages and all that goes with it i would want to know i am not investing an a Turkey! i have a bad feeling about this, i don't think he is the answer, if we are going to replace Migs go and buy a top keeper and be done with it, bargain basements are well too risky, and a top goalie is essential if you want a successful team.

Thanks in advance

Surely a deal can still be done Ed, I don't think we've been unreasonable by suggesting a trial tbh?

Owe ok, a strange one really then, do you think it can be sorted out or has it passed now.

Dezmondo

Ed02{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool were going to start going about there business in a normal fashion then life would be a lot easier. Liverpool are looking for a goalkeeper. Valdes is an option - as he will be for a number of high profile clubs looking for a GK - PSG, Atletico, Monaco, maybe even Real Madrid if Casillas leaves. Cech is another experienced GK some of these clubs are looking for. It is what it is. Three things to learn. (1) Wait until a player is fully fit before assessing his fitness. (2) Don't put pressure on professional players to try and jump ahead in the business. (3) Stop the manager opening his mouth. He may think he is being smart, but he is being a DF.}

Ed002 might know something about this:

Is there some problem between Rodgers and Begovic? Their paths must have crossed at Chelsea at some stage unless I've got my timings wrong.
I ask because Begovic was rumoured to be a target before Mignolet signed and he is clearly a better keeper. Rumours suggested he didn't want to leave Stoke, but Liverpool and Stoke are not a million miles away and Stoke are never going to be competing for honours. I can't imagine wages being an issue either, so I wondered if it was a personal issue between them?
I think he's the kind of keeper we need.

As for Migs, he reminds me a bit of David James and Brad Friedel. Great shot stoppers but needed experience of playing at a lower level before they developed imposing characteristics and organisational skills. They both matured in their 30's but were terribly error prone in their 20's and lacked confidence.

Hey Eds, do you think Rodgers will be allowed to buy any more players this January?Personally I don't see it after he was given money to bring in 9 players this summer. Thank you in advance for your reply

cluelessITK guy

Ed02{Ed002's Note - It is clear that efforts are being made to add another goalkeeper. After that you would think with the changes made in the summer that there should be nothing else required. However, at some point, I am convinced that we will hear the cliché "we are always looking to add quality". I am sure there will be a player or two leaving in January (Suso and perhaps Coutinho) and I am not convinced that they need replacing. The club also needs to keep a watchful eye on the FFP issues.}

I'd be very surprised if Chelsea went for Sterling based purely on the wealth of talent they already have both at the club and on loan in that area. Could easily see City going for him in the summer, especially if someone like Silva or Nasri left

hjikle

Ed02{Ed002's Note - The two sides who have shown an interest are Chelsea and Real Madrid. Manchester City are not in a position to do anything in January due to their FFP punishment but have identified a viable summer target that would mean they won't be looking to Sterling. I don't see the kid being keen on moving abroad, I don't think Chelsea will happen, and with the new deal I expect him to soon accept I am sure he will be at Liverpool for some time yet. But it doesn't mean there won't be interest.}

Cheers

Jgs92

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I understand that such an offer for Higuain was speculated about in the summer as you suggest JGS92, but since then Liverpool moved for Balotelli and have the apparently effervescing Origi yet to arrive - with no shortage of forwards at the club. To be honest, I would think there is little or no chance of Higuain arriving at Anfield in January.}

RDL

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I cannot say where he will end up but Dortmund have held talks with Manchester City and a third party acting on behalf of PSG has enquired after his availability. Barcelona would like to agree a January 2016 move but it is unsure if that would suit the player. Dortmund will not want to sell to Bayern Munich but they have aging forwards they need to look to replacing and may push for a deal. If Liverpool were to lose Sterling they might look to Reus. If Real Madrid were to lose Ronaldo they might also look to Reus. Arsenal has shown previous interest but I am not convinced there is anything there right now.}

I believe Mignolet will have the chance to keep the spot, but at some point Valdes will also have the chance to take it (Cup competitions). I think they want Mignolet to improve and Valdes is plan B.

I am hearing reports that Valdes will sign over the international break!

I hope so as he is a winner with a winners mentality. However, he won't win the game with his saves that Hart or begovic would make

Red Said Fred

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Valdes spoke with The AP last week and said that there was some confusion but as far as he know both Monaco and Liverpool are interested in him. Since then I understand that agreement has been reached for him to visit the club to meet with folks, be shown around and likely have a very stringent medical. At that point Liverpool and the player will need to make a decision and an approach would need to be made to the FA to seek their approval for the signing. So the answer is that what you have heard may well be correct Fred.}

05 Oct 2014 19:02:06
When you say seeking approval ed, why would he need approval?

I understand we are under ftp investigation, and you are allowed to have emergency goal keepers signed AND sign free agents. It's not really an emergency but he is a free agent I thought.

Sorry for my ignorance in advance Ed.

Hi Eds,
a dissapointing start of the campaing. Balotelli is not proving himself as 1st choice striker. Is it possible Liverpool will look to bring another striker in Jan? Lallana is looking better and better with every game. Looks like the best buy of the summer, with Manquillo and Moreno not far behind. Hope for a win today, all the best Eds.

Tom

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are already overloaded with forwards. If Liverpool do move for another striker in January others will need to leave - don't forget the (According to Brendo) soon to be "world class" Origi will be arriving in the summer.}

dezyboy

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Yes, an embarrassing thing for Brendo to say. Not to worry.}

( 2 )

IMO, Origi would already be an improvement on all three of our forwards (not counting Sturridge) because he actually MOVES when he doesn't have the ball instead of waiting for Sterling, Coutinho or Lallana or Gerrard or Henderson to supply the perfect pass in to feet. (He's scored a fair few for Lille this season. He's pretty much the star striker there, given the injuries they are suffering and pretty poor Nolan Roux and Michael Frey).

Granted, Balotelli and Lambert are good target men, but without two mobile strikers in the team, we tend to play mundane football in the final third (and some excellent build up play before that!).

I didn't think for a minute he would, but the state of the defense at the moment dictates that something needs to be done. I have no preference of a defensive coach as long as they can do the job.

Eds.

Any truth to the Sterling won't sign a new contract being reported or is it simply paper talk?

He has been the only positive I can take from our season so far. I do agree to some of the notes below that he has put too much pressure on himself to save the team. He needs to learn that he cannot fix everything by himself and play the simple ball sometimes so that the team can fix the problems.

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the press are saying but my understanding is that Real Madrid are still interested in him and is agent may well be told soon what sort of package and conditions they will be offering. Liverpool have made an offer and I would think they would want time to consider what is his best option going forward. I really don't see any big deal at this time.}

Im sure Stirling has the potential to play at Real but who would they put him in for? I think it would be a disaster for his career at this stage. Look at Rodwell at City, what's the point.

John, £60m? You are in dream land mate if you think we'd get that much. He is yet to sign a new deal and they are interested.

IF he leaves you will be disappointed if you're expecting that kind of money.

Boom, I think Hazard will be Ronaldo replacement.

I agree Stirling would be a long term investment for RM but I don't see him getting lots of game time initially - not sure. I do think he has potential of being a top 3 best in World one day, but there is a lot of developing needed to get there, on and off the pitch.

Liverpool best place for him for next three years in my opinion.

Hi Eds, just wondering what is happening on Valdes are we in for him or no?
Do you think we move for dani alves aswell next summer which he have.stated by saying he is moving to the premier next summer didn't say which clubs were in for him.
Also do you see us puahing for a new striker or new winger such as Higuain, Benezma, Reus. I know highly unlikey but can you see us going for another striker i believe balotelli not the answer we need a goal scorer to partner Dan up top, mario would be a good back up in all fairness.
Thanks eds please get back
I believe we sign
Valdes
Dani alves
Higuain or benezma we be a force.

1994lfc

Ed01{Ed001's Note - Valdes is still injured. Alves is highly unlikely to be coming to us, thankfully. We are already shockingly bad at defending, why would we add another who doesn't understand the word's meaning? It is not signings we need, just like we didn't in the summer. It is not about buying your way out of trouble, we need good coaching and management, not players.}

Ed01 as boom said last week, i and others agreed, alonso and remy, we missed the trick with both, not just on price, 3mill and 8 mill, but what the both wouldve offered and solutions to obvious problems. i also mentioned koplyanka, why didn't we go back for him? as i said before the window shut, west ham were being qouted 12 mill. so a total of 23 million for those three!!

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are overloaded with forwards already so any move for such a player seems very unlikely unless someone significant were leaving. Whilst both players have continued to attract some interest, the has not been interest shown by Liverpool as far as I know.}

I do worry that he will become disillusioned about not being a first choice cb- wasnt that one of the main reasons he left psg?
Picking toure ahead of him must feel like an insult or poor judgement, especially just after toure has given away a stupid clumsy penalty.
Sakho must be wondering what he has to do to get a starting spot.

anonymush

( 1 )

For me sakho is our best defender, sick of him taking the blame for others all the the time, ok he had a 50 pence head for the third goal at west game, but that was 2- 0 before he was on, Rodgers needs to be careful how he's treating players. I understand no one is bigger then the club but toure before sakho is a joke I would react the same as sakho if I was a lpool player. But for me we've let 2 better players then we already have in agger and reina go. Two outstanding servants to our club.

Cole25

Agreed Cole. We should have given them another season. With mature heads they could have helped with the new influx of players. That's why I think Valdes will be a valuable addition. However I do think Sakho's problem is the way he passes the ball. His body language/positioning just telegraphs what he intends to do. He looks really awkward.

Valdes is Spanish. so are our two young fullbacks. We need someone to command the backline. Mignolet is a youngster as well. We have never really replaced Jamie Carragher. Lovren needs a solid partner. And the back four need a solid goalkeeper.

Agreed over lovren but still have issues over him too. Lovren looks pleasing on the eye passing wise etc. Looks the part, but his defending has not been great, wrong side of his man for a number of games so far.his best game was yesterday and Dortmund friendly probably. I get the feeling if u have a price tag tho u get more of a chance at our club look at markovic. I agree he's young and needs time but I haven't even seen a glimpse of his talent at the minute.rather assaidi or ibe on the bench. Sooner valdes recovers the better because crusty the clown triplets mignolet and jones and gk coach (tranmere rovers joke) can go back the circus)

Cole25

1) Hey Cole,

Yep. agree on that, but Sakho is worrying

1) I think Lovren / Skrtl will be the Brendan choice, and I agree. Sakho can throw his dummy out of his pram as much as he wants but his performances have been loose and erratic at best.
Don't get me wrong when he came from PSG, I expected loads, however, I fear though he may be a wasted purchase, and ultimately sacrificed.

2) To be fair my friend, Markovic has the potential to be twenty times Ibe and Assaidi. Chelsea were looking to sign him, and for good reason. Liverpool took a punt. I personally think he will come on strong. At the moment tho, we need the finished article, but we are not in a financial position to buy the likes of Robben et al, plus they probably wouldn't come anyway.

3) lol goalkeeper, I agree with you although I wouln't be so scathing, Simon has been a star considering the pressure he's been under, but he needs competition. I agree John Achterberge is in need of replacement or help, that's why I agreed with original poster bout keeping Pepe for a season.

All the best my friend

Cactus

Cactus Jack Cactus Jack

Ed02{Ed002's Note - (1) Lovren sits above Sakho in the pecking order - Kirikou was Brendaned on August 25 and subsequently moved in to Brendan's house (refer to #WonderDogSparky on Twitter). (2) Chelsea chose not to buy the remainder of Markovic this summer to let Benfica mug someone in to a good profit for themselves and Chelsea for a player not ready in the eyes of Chelsea. (c) Pepe needed to be cut from the club like a rotting piece of apple. Liverpool have an interest in Valdes and January would likely work for him to have proven his fitness and join. There is a chance he might join earlier. Valdes has also spoken with Monaco and has told The AP that he has had contact from Liverpool but is aware that the Liverpool manager has refuted that.}

He may or may not be feeling disillusioned at his treatment by Rodgers but it is unacceptable, in my opinion, to leave the ground the way he did at the time he did. It shows a massive disrespect to both the club and its fans and is, above all, extremely unprofessional. He may feel aggrieved at not playing but that is a grievance between himself and the manager - to disrespect the club is well out of line.

Some saying Toure was in the squad before Sakho, but surely Toure wasn't making the bench until Sakho kicked off a bit, or have I missed something?

Keith

Right now I say it doesn't matter who we have in our defence - for this reason. We currently make good defenders become rubbish!

Sakho
Lovren
Toure
Agger

Something has happened with our tactics or player instructions that has made these players turn from class defenders to average at best.

Until tactics, training and player instructions change, we will continue to have a crap defence - and that would include Mignolet too.

We have such good strength in depth in our squad, but we will win nothing with a defence like this.

1) Ed002, I don't do twitter, so please enlighten me as to why 'Kirikou' was Brendaned on aug 25?

2) That is objective, but probably has an ounce of truth in it. Time will tell.

3) Why do you say Pepe needed to be cut free like a rotting apple. Is that Sparkys opinion or yours?

Cactus Jack Cactus Jack

Ed02{Ed002's Note -

(1) It unfurled like this:

Sparky ‏@WonderDogSparky • Aug 25
Sparky is drawn to the front door where he finds a whimpering Kirikou on the floor holding his love truncheon.

Sparky ‏@WonderDogSparky • Aug 25
A review of the security cameras finds footage of Brendo and another man at the front door.

Sparky ‏@WonderDogSparky • Aug 25
It is hard to make out the other guy as he is blocked out by Brendo's nose.

Sparky ‏@WonderDogSparky • Aug 25
Brendo kicks Kirikou between the legs. The other guy shouts "Brendaned - dobio ga je u gonada onda" as they run off.

Sparky ‏@WonderDogSparky • Sep 5
Sparky and PipCo say goodbye to Kirikou who has moved out to squat in Brendo's old house after Brendo and his mistress did a runner.

(2) I have no idea what you mean. It is precisely correct and I explained the situation at the time.

(3) The club handled his 2013 move to Italy very badly and he made a series of pretty bitter comments. They further handled this summer badly and could have avoided his return at all. Having him back at the club would have had a detrimental effect had he stayed longer. Maybe the club will learn a lesson.}

Ha Ha Ed2. very amusing. Glad to see you have a sense of humour. However what has Kirikou ( Sahko) done to be Brendaned?
You are not the scorned wife of Mr Rodgers by any chance are you lol? Or are you implying he is gay. Ha haaa.
