Ed's, it's far from over, but of the current teams in relegation (Cardiff, Fulham, Huddersfield as of today) are there any players you think might be worth a go on the relatively cheap?

{Ed002's Note - So you think it a good idea to replace players from a team at the top of the league with players from relegated sides?}

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Mar 2019 12:51:26
Worked with robbo 🤭.

17 Mar 2019 12:56:32
Well in Benny! 😂 oh, cheeky.
Good point though.

17 Mar 2019 13:07:22
And partly Shaqiri (for first half of season)

17 Mar 2019 13:10:37
Robbo, Wijnaldum and Shaqiri were all signed from relegated sides so I don't think there's any problem with that (okay, slight caveat, Shaq's level has dropped in recent months) .

17 Mar 2019 13:26:13
Mooey can't spell his name, Aaron is first name I think. Huddersfield lad. I'm not saying he would be a starter and I know we have lots of cms but he has that attacking flair that our cms lack bar keita, lallana and milner. I just think he would bring a new aspect to the team.

Also shurrle from Fulham. Had a poor season but is a great player with bags of potential. Would provide cover for lots of positions.

And Ryan sessegnon. Would be a great back up for robbo although the lad has so much promise I can't see him wanting to play second fiddle.

{Ed002's Note - This would be to replace Keita? Or who? Would Sessegnon move to sit on the bench? A possible Mane replacement I suppose.}

17 Mar 2019 13:34:55
Ryan sessegnon would be my pick if he was happy to be a squad player. Bags of potential there, can play lb or could rotate with either winger.

{Ed002's Note - Another £50M squad player? He will move somewhere that wants him.}

17 Mar 2019 13:42:30
That's a fair point ed, thought we might have been able to snipe him for cheaper than that. Just figured he would be a good option to have as well as add to English players in squad but the kid should be trying to get regular game time which we couldn't offer him.

17 Mar 2019 14:11:16
In response to Ed's 002, you're saying that among the three teams and 36+/ - players playing top flight football week in week out there aren't any players even worth looking at simply because they're in a relegation battle? I wonder where you would draw the line for looking at a player? If a team is one point out of relegation are there players worth looking at? How about 2? To insinuate there aren't individual quality players in a team sport seems nonsensical to me. And no, I'm not saying they need to be starters, but perhaps squad players or depth? We have an aging milner, low depth on the wing backs, and obviously (pending catastrophy) going do be in the champions league next year and could use quality and depth next season. Surely if there is a bargain we'd want to take advantage (like shaqiri and Robertson) . Just thought it would be a fun talking point at the very least but I sure hope our scouts aren't so pretentious and are willing to look at talent regardless of league or position in the table. After all, vvd was playing in Scotland not long ago and I think we can all agree that's a much weaker league. or mahrez that was playing in league 2 not long ago.

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth the bother quite frankly. Liverpool are doing really well and are top of the league, and they have some very good youngsters coming through. Now would be a great time to start listing which of the players and youngsters you want to move on to replace with players from relegated teams. Every week I read of the fans, win or lose, who want players out of the club. From my perspective the club should do no more than a little bit of refinement - but what do I know.}

17 Mar 2019 16:42:35
I think there are some limited opportunities with clubs lower down to pick up someone who is good value.

However my view and I hold to it is that we need to strengthen the overall squad and have some other game changers. I'm not convinced the up and coming kids are ready to simply be on the bench and change games.

For me I'd get a quality RB, have TAA as options for RB and midfield, Id get a striker to replace Sturridge and also some legs in midfield plus the big buy of the summer a world class attacking midfielder. Do we need much else?

17 Mar 2019 18:59:18
id like us to finally bring mitrovic in to fulfil Ed02s prophecy!

plus we need the backup in the attacking third!

17 Mar 2019 18:31:22
I’m sorry Ed02 but why does buying a player mean they are a squad player can’t they play or push for a place? Sanchez is 300k a week squad player? Mahrez a 50 million squad player? These two barely play, yet we play the same three week in week out, and don’t really have an option of that calibre to rotate with, or make an impact off the bench. I know Sanchez hasn’t made any sort of impact, but they still bought him knowing they had Rashford martial Lukaku Lingard mata.
To fight on all fronts you need a squad, not just an eleven, so why is having options up front an issue. I’m sure Sturridge will be gone, and maybe ings Permanently, so we really only have shaq and Origi to rotate or come on.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United and Manchester City are in a different place to Liverpool. Sanchez is constraining MU for FFP. Manchester City has players who are pissed because they are not playing. I guess you cannot see the big pictuire and asume you expect Brewster sold?}

17 Mar 2019 22:52:13
At the start of the season we had ings, Solanke Sturridge and Origi as strikers - and I know that’s too many - now we have two left, with one maybe both leaving. Brewster hasn’t had 90 mins of prem football yet, and whilst I want us to develop youth and have a pathway to the first team, we can’t bank on him being good enough to come in for Firmino if he was out. Okay, at the moment, we would bring in Origi and he has done well enough for me, considering the limited minutes he has had. I also understand that city probably have too many options in attack. I imagine sane is completely happy with his game time either. But still, god forbid we lost one of the front three for an extended period, we are losing a lot of quality with our replacements. Hence it’s an area I think we need to address, and don’t see it as one in one out. I’m not saying a 80 million pound player, but if we did buy someone of quality as a striker or winger, I think they’d get enough minutes to be satisfied in their first season, and allow us to rotate a little more when needed.

18 Mar 2019 15:41:39
Replacements for Migs and Moreno Hessle, neither will want to waste another year of their careers on our bench.

Did you see the ufc last night tris? Wow that masvidal is a scrapper, knocked roll into next week and got hold of that gobby Edwards after the fight. I don’t condone that but it was entertaining. He’s previously said he’s sick of people trash talking, I’d like him to get hold of that mcgregor.

17 Mar 2019 12:47:56
Pato must be the biggest waste of talent ever.
Where would he come on your list of all time idots Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - he would be nowhere near the top mate, there are far too many of them and he is just another kid who let it all go to his head.}

17 Mar 2019 13:02:22
Till is massively overrated lercy, got found out again last night.

17 Mar 2019 13:29:09
Why are we talking ufc. Isn't this where the eds say:

"this is the Liverpool page" and zed amuses us with his native wit.

{Ed002's Note - I would have done, but another Ed posted it.}

17 Mar 2019 16:49:22
Cheers Ed, I'm hoping you're having a good day, especially after them three points! I got a little worried there mate I have to admit it lol but thankfully we got the job done!

{Ed001's Note - I am just glad to get the points.}

16 Mar 2019 23:51:21
Hi Eds do you think we might hold on to Origi for next season? Could allow Brewster to settle into the squad and I think Origi's shown enough this season to give it some thought especially one particular game.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, it looks like Origi has worked his way back into Klopp's thinking. Obviously it depends on him and what offers come in during the summer, and the last month or so of the season. Right now, as things stand, I expect him to stay though.}

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 07:03:15
Isn't Origi's contract up in June 2020? If we are not going to give him a new one, might as well cash in now. If he gets a new contract and has earned Klopp's trust, it spells the end for Sturridge and possible Shaq (if Klopp is planning on adding someone like Brandt) with OX also back fully fit for next season.

{Ed001's Note - Sturridge is only here because no one would take him in the summer or January window.}

17 Mar 2019 07:36:47
Wow! Didn't know Sturridge's stock is that low at this point of time!
The good thing is we have a ready made replacement in Brewster waiting in the wings.
The majority of our transfer budget has to go on upgrading our backup fullbacks (Moreno is leaving and Klopp will never play Clyne again) as an injury to either Robbo or TAA basically robs our team of serious width and then allows the opposition defenders to defend narrow and gang up on Salah and Mane. Its no surprise Salah's form has picked up again after TAA's return from injury.
Would also love to see a creative CAM/ wide midfielder to cover Mane and rotate with OX. If we can get these 3 positions sorted, we should be able to challenge on all fronts next season.

17 Mar 2019 07:49:37
Thats good to hear Ed001 I've liked his attitude and desire when he's played and he can clearly improve a lot more. And are you excited about Brewster's arrival into the team for next yeae Ed001? I cannot wait I really think the kid has something and looking at the positives of that bad injury he's coming back at the right time now to get more match fit and take pre season by storm along with Ox. My pre season prediction is that those two develop a nice partnership and destroy a few teams :)

{Ed001's Note - I am not excited because I have not seen enough of him play to get excited by him to be honest.}

17 Mar 2019 08:01:30
Hopefully you can see a lot of him in pre season!

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed.}

17 Mar 2019 08:30:16
Can’t believe people are thinking Brewster is the answer when no one has seen him play any competitive games. This is what embarrasses me about Liverpool supporters, far to early to judge the lad and people are piling pressure on him. He’s had a good spell in the youth ranks but will he be able to step up? Hopefully, but if you want to challenge for the title and major honours then pinning your hopes on a kid who hasn’t done anything is stupid! We need to be making signings that better the team and if our kids are good enough they’ll give Klopp enough of a headache and force their way in just like fowler, getrard, carragher and the poison dwarf Owen did. Until then I’d like proven players to improve the squad because apart from Trent and sterling who else has come through lately and made the grade?

17 Mar 2019 08:56:35
As for Origi it’s a shame but the lad isn’t good enough in my opinion, he’s getting game time as he’s the best option at the moment, says a lot about our squad depth! But again if you want to challenge for major honours he’s not of the right quality. Can you see him getting into any of our rival teams? I cant.

17 Mar 2019 09:57:46
pegleg - we're not going to get 4 or 5 players of salah / mane standard for that front line. origi is here and giving it a good bash.

17 Mar 2019 10:41:46
Who said four or five players? Look at city and therir squad depth, if you want to seriously challenge them you need to have better quality on the bench, I’m sorry but Origi isn’t good enough.

17 Mar 2019 10:49:59
I don't understand what you're saying pegleg, is it wrong to believe in a youngster and want him to have the chance to step up? You can't expect us to spend and spend. I see an opening for Brewster in the squad not straight into the first 11. You talk about Sterling and Trent who people also believed in, hadn't played competitive games but were given a chance to step up and took it - we have youth teams for a reason. As for pinning my hopes on Brewster? I'm not saying I expect him to displace Firmino, score 30+ goals and fire us to the league. I expect more like trent's first full season at 18/ 19yo where he got around 20-30 games giving him time to grow and show his quality without massive pressure. Ultimately Klopp will judge if he thinks he can step up. I don't think its embarassing to believe one of our kids can make it.

17 Mar 2019 11:43:05
Pegleg, Origi is part of the Liverpool squad that is 1 point off the top of the PL and in the quarter final of the CL. Isn’t that ‘challenging for major honours’?

17 Mar 2019 12:16:08
Not sure what will be the toughest task, winning the premiership or injecting a bit of positivity into Pegleg.

17 Mar 2019 13:40:52
I was calling for us to sign Sturridge way before any rumours started. Thought he'd be great and he was. Had the ability to become World class.

He is always going to score goals, he just knows where the net is and he can kick a ball as well as anyone. But he is not at our level anymore. The 30 yard chip, the curler in the europa league. He will do well at Leicester or wolves. His heart isn't in it anymore, although I will miss his celebration. It really pisses off the opposition. I think we need to offload in summer, at whatever cost.

Origi on the other hand I had written off completely last season. But he has something that none of our other players have in that position. Height, strength and speed, combined with a wicked shot. definitely a keeper for me. Its not like aguero or kane are going to come and sit on the bench. We need a young, talented forward to push mane and firmino and we have him on origi.

And he scores against the blues. For that alone keep him.

16 Mar 2019 22:03:28
Hi Ed’s hope your all well. Have always wondered why have we never gone back in for the players we have chased in January or near the end of the transfer window which we didn’t just get over the line? Was it a case of panic buying?
Konoploynka
Texeira from shakhtar
Fekir
Kerimba from Hoffenheim
Mind the spelling of the names.

{Ed002's Note - Well, taking Fekir as an example, Liverpool screwed around Lyon.}

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Mar 2019 07:29:00
Aye kerimba.

17 Mar 2019 13:44:04
Also we were top of the league by Miles and I don't think anyone wanted to change the dynamic of the dressing room. Not to mention we spent a fortune in the summer.

I believe fsg invested so much because of our progression last season. So I'm expecting some big signings again this summer. Especially if we miss out on the league.

16 Mar 2019 18:05:06

16 Mar 2019 18:58:42
Sorry Irish. I wasn't aware of that.

Is there extra time? If so, then having to play 120 minutes is the best to hope for.

16 Mar 2019 19:05:12
Swansea's left forward, Leeds nearly signed him epic.

16 Mar 2019 19:51:18
Swansea robbed.

16 Mar 2019 19:54:25
He would make a good sprinter for sure, but what's he like with the ball. If he is half decent what a weapon he could be.

16 Mar 2019 20:43:09
All City's goals are either bad referee decisions, or getting to the by line and smashing it across goal for tap ins haha.

17 Mar 2019 00:49:12
guttered for swansea, calls didn't go their way. but I think the pressure was going to break em eventually anyways.

17 Mar 2019 13:49:36
And unlucky swans, they were indeed robbed.

16 Mar 2019 13:04:33
Ed2 just saw an article about a new train service to the ground. Would this be enough to see the expansion of the ground?

{Ed002's Note - Expanding the ground costs enormous sums of money that take years and years to recover. I don't know about the train service, but Liverpool cannot expand beyond 60k without paying to improve the infrastructure.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 13:50:39
I live right next to Old Trafford, I mean I could almost throw something at it from here and if there's one thing I'm envious of it's the surrounding infrastructure. A dedicated train station, 3, soon to be 4 nearby tram stops and as much parking as I've seen for a stadium in the surrounding area.

Now some of this is down to the City, there's much more going on around and beyond Old Trafford than at Anfield so it's in the City's best interests to improve the infrastructure but even just a single train station would improve things massively in my opinion for Anfield.

16 Mar 2019 13:52:53
We have to have a long term plan to get the stadium to the levels of Utd, City, Spurs and Arsenal in order to generate revenue to keep competing.

Appreciate that's a lot of investment but we can't sit still.

{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to do any such thing and the revenue from it is small.}

16 Mar 2019 14:08:42
How do you manage to live there IronDan? I only work in Manc city centre and even that's too close to the 'Theatre Of Dreams' for my liking.

16 Mar 2019 14:50:07
Johnnyr1970, I think IronDan is happy enough there as he can throw things at it. Lol.

16 Mar 2019 18:23:31
I think IronDan meant to say he lives within spitting distance of OT 😀.

16 Mar 2019 20:50:34
I went to Anfield today for a mooch round the tour with the kids whilst it was raining. I had a look at Anfield Rd and the area behind it, could easily fit another massive Stand there like the main one. I agree though, no train stations, minimal parking and absolutely nothing there other than the stadium. It's miles behind. But then on the flip side, it's a scary place for other teams, there's no TGI's and all that friendly vibes. probably why we have a better home record than the other lot.

17 Mar 2019 13:53:18
Spot on lfcb. It is an intimidating stadium for travelling fans and when playing the big pampered sides I think it shakes them up.

No way do I want to share a stadium with Everton. If a new stadium is built give it to them. Anfield has too many memories, both happy and devastatingly sad. YNWA 96.

16 Mar 2019 12:40:56
Here’s a question for everyone.

Which player have you been most excited about when we signed.

For me it was Torres, I remember him breaking through at Athletico Madrid as a teenager, when we signed him I couldn’t believe we’d actually got him, then first game Chelsea, stands Terry up like a mug and skins him 😂

Hated the way he left but have to admit he was class those first couple of years.

Agree15 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 12:49:48
Luis Suarez.

16 Mar 2019 12:57:50
Virgil van Dijk.

16 Mar 2019 13:27:43
Can I extend it out to any staff member?
For me it was Klopp. I couldn't believe that we managed to get him after the position we were in. Financially not in the best shape, low in the league and quite a poor squad and we got one of the best managers in the world. Especially as we had the likes of Roy Hodgson and Brendan Rogers beforehand.

16 Mar 2019 13:28:56
Sir Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish (plain Kenny in 1977). He came from Celtic to replace Kevin Keegan with a stellar reputation as one of the best to ever come out of Scotland and the rest is history.

{Ed025's Note - very good player WW, but an ever better human being mate..

16 Mar 2019 13:33:05
Would have to agree on Torres. He was fantastic when he signed for us. Coutinho was exciting as well because I knew him from football manager.
Unfortunately I've had plenty of let downs, thought morientes was going to be fantastic and I had high hopes for Robbie Keane too.

16 Mar 2019 13:34:57
Stan Collymore easily the biggest disappointment for me ever.

16 Mar 2019 13:38:54
Modern day it has to be Allison. Bringing him in was just unreal imo because it was all nothing but rumours, then it actually happened. As much as I rate VVD, Fabinho, robbo etc the game changer is Allison.

Many will disagree with this comment but think about it, if we had Migs in goal would we be this far ahead in the PL and CL. Allison is unreal and imo the most important player in the squad. Defenders can do well but it means nothing if they have a crap GK behind them. We're lucky, we have Allison.

16 Mar 2019 13:41:20
El Nino.

16 Mar 2019 13:42:07
Coutinho, after buying him for years on fm I was sure we had nabbed a bargain at 8mil, over 100 mil profit and he scored some great goals. Good riddance in the end though.

16 Mar 2019 13:46:25
But yeah, all in all. I agree with WW, Dalglish all day long.

16 Mar 2019 13:53:32
Torres and Van Dijk.

16 Mar 2019 13:46:25
But yeah, all in all. I agree with WW, Dalglish all day long.

16 Mar 2019 13:57:36
Mine was Jari Litmanen, which didn’t go as his previous career suggested it would 🙄
Least inspiring Paul Konchesky and David Speedy (convinced that latter was just to prove Sir Kenny is human after all 🙃)

16 Mar 2019 14:18:17
Alisson in modern times that was a stunning purchase, VVD I would say is a better player but he was expected to sign and I don’t think his reputation was that of Alisson before he signed.
I remember being excited by Torres, morientes and, Kewel though.

16 Mar 2019 14:21:41
Sean Dundee 🙄🙄🙄.

16 Mar 2019 14:30:04
Are those decisions being made after we have seen how they have performed for us? I read the question differently, which players was I really excited we were buying and for me one was Torres as he was class act before he joined. Also Keita as he seemed one of the missing links we would need in midfield to take us up many levels, Fekir (never happened but like Keita looked to be another missing link and all round class act that had me salivating) . However, to pick one then it is Allison, to me he is maybe the only World Class player, upon joining, that we bought in the last few years. again just how I read the question.

16 Mar 2019 14:32:17
Kenny, John Barnes then Collymore. 2 became absolute legends, the other an absolute waster.

16 Mar 2019 14:54:20
The King! Hands down, no contest.

16 Mar 2019 14:59:32
I was really excited when we signed cisse, I thought he was going to be brilliant for us. Another 1 would be heskey, I had watched him for Leicester in a friendly against finn harps and he had to be taken off after 20 mins with 4 goals to his name. Lol! Him and Owen were brilliant for England U21 too.

16 Mar 2019 15:15:34
I, like you Mcgoveb, read the question, who excited the most at the time. I could go on and on! . Harry Kewell was another. What a waste of space he turned out to be.

16 Mar 2019 15:19:22
Has to be Klopp or Alisson. Was shocked we got either of them.

16 Mar 2019 15:28:29
Klopp for me - I couldn’t believe we got him after what he did for Dortmund and I felt he was going to be perfect for the club and would really be a big draw to help us sign top players. I also felt that the next manager after Rogers was critical to whether we progressed or slumped back into the usual 6-8 place finishes we’d been seeing for years.

In terms of players, Alisson has to be top of the list as we have been desperate for a GK for years, but Mane wasn’t far off. his signing added the pace we lacked upfront and showed the way Klopp wanted us to play. and then he scored that goal vs Arsenal!

Going back further I would say Torres, especially after that goal vs Chelsea.

16 Mar 2019 15:51:20
Guys, just to remove any doubt, there was genuine excitement amongst Reds fans when Kenny signed in the Summer of 1977. He had earned a great reputation through his performances when playing for Celtic and Scotland and Liverpool were amongst a number of top English clubs who tried to sign him for quite a while - don’t forget he was 26 before he agreed to come South. It is fair to say he didn’t disappoint. He was our greatest player EVER (no argument, he was) and as Ed025 says, a great human being as well. Hail King Kenny!

16 Mar 2019 16:59:58
Jonny Barnes from Watford most exciting player I've seen live. Took a lot of stick at the time, just done his talking on the pitch and rapping off it. Legend.

16 Mar 2019 17:20:55
God second time round. Even though I knew he wouldn’t be at his peak I had goosebumps when I heard about his signing.

16 Mar 2019 18:02:15
Christian Poulsen.

16 Mar 2019 18:12:38
Alisson! I don’t think many would have been disappointed if we didn’t get him as we just spent a bunch on vvd, Fabinho and Keita. It cemented that we are team if we want a player we can just throw money at them. I really felt like a fan of a giant club. I haven’t felt like that my entire life. Each purchase is expected to hit world class levels within a season or two.

All of mine didn't live up to expectation.

Harry Kewell - he was amazing at Leeds. People were labelling him as the left footed Beckham.

Joe Cole - I couldn't believe how bad that signing worked out to be so wrong.

Phil Babb - Had an amazing world cup with Ireland before he signed - at least we signed John Scales in the same window who turned out to be decent.

El-Hadji Diouf - Likewise, had an amazing world cup and looked to be a complete world beater, but turned out to be a horrible person, a cheat and not very good at football. I couldn't think of anyone that I dislike more in football. He makes Ramos and Neymar look like saints.

Stewart Downing - How could someone with such a quality delivery end the season with 0 assists? I know we signed him to supply Andy Carroll, but I couldn't believe how many times we substituted Carroll for Downing and Vice Versa. They were hardly on the field at the same time.

I guess I should stop getting my hopes up about players. It might all be my fault.

Spot on Wirral.

Used to love watching Peter Beardsley weave his magic and terrorise the opposition with intricate pieces of skill in and around the 18 yard box. A brilliant buy from Newcastle around the time John Barnes arrived. One of my favourite players along with the obvious KK. Also loved David ”super sub” Fairclough, could always relied on to come off the bench to score a goal! VVD and Alisson been superb buys, both real quality. Torres brilliant to watch and decided to move on due to our lack of ability to really compete for honours at the time but I Guarantee he wouldn’t have moved on from this team!

Player has to be King Kenny by miles. Manager it has to be Klopp; I couldn’t believe we’d got such a character. “The ordinary one” - what a perfect start.

Istvan kosma, julien dicked and torben piechnik. But in a parallel universe definitely Ian rush returning home and more recently torres. Clough and Saunders were more hopeful signings than a great build up of anticipation and obviously both were disappointing overall.

Alisson.

Shocked no-one mentioned Rush part 2.
Even though we’d been spoilt with sensational football in 87/ 88 Rush was such a great striker that I was gutted when he left but amazed by the return which came completely out of the blue 😎.

Since the question is "Which player have you been most excited about when we signed" and not, in retrospect, I would have to say Xabi Alonso. Benitez enthused so much about him, so despite having virtually no knowledge of him beforehand, he would have to be my choice.

With the benefit of hindsight, obviously King Kenny but also the underrated Ray Kennedy.

For me it was like one of our best signings, the day we heard that Stevie Gerrard wasn't going to Chelsea.
If he had went I felt it would have sent out the signal that the club was near collapse.
When you look back the club was in a real mess and to get to where we are now took some real hard work.

For me it was gabby batistuta who my dad's mate told me we'd signed, when he was right at the top of his game. It. He l we t me believe it for hours!

Torres
Vvd
Keita
Sturridge.

I didn't know much about suarez.

I saw mane play in his first friendly for us and I knew we had signed a game changer, a superstar in the making. Never watch Southampton so I didn't know how good he was.

Alisson also has to be worth a shout. Most expensive keeper in the world for a fortnight. Way, way better than kepa too! Also he has ears the work.

Cheers for that Reid. Good reid! None of the games seem that interesting although I'll be hoping for a Huddersfield win.

Does wagner have any job opportunities atm, I felt he performed a miracle keeping them up last year and I think he would have been a better option for Leicester City. I'd really like to see what he could do with a half decent team.
