Hi Eds,

See Real Madrid linked again today with another push for Klopp again this summer. Any chance of this happening you think and would it depend on if we win the league or not?

If it happened must be some quality replacements out there we could entice. Gallardo, Simeone, Allegri for example.

CarlosJackal.

{Ed002's Note - He is by no means first choice for Real Madrid so it is unlikely.}

Agree0 Disagree9

06 Mar 2019 15:03:59
Thanks Ed.

06 Mar 2019 17:00:31
I think Mourinho might be back there next season.

{Ed002's Note - He is first choice of the board.}

06 Mar 2019 18:21:15
Klopp may not be first choice but I bet they'd bloody love him - which I'm guessing is vunlikely due to them, him and us!

06 Mar 2019 19:01:54
Wow. Is Mourinho really first choice? I can't imagine a more toxic combination at the moment.

06 Mar 2019 20:52:11
Apparently there were conversations as soon as Zidanzw walked. He was also sat in the stands last night.

As was Ramos. Filming in his box lol.

06 Mar 2019 20:52:46
Zidane even.

07 Mar 2019 11:02:53
Can't think why any manager would go there TBH. I know they probably pay good money but that team needs a lot of work and most managers end up looking for jobs again after 12 months.

06 Mar 2019 07:51:22
Bruno fernandes again linked with us in the gossip columns, could any of the eds shine any light on this?

Any posters or eds know what kind of player he is and is he better than what we have?

{Ed002's Note - Bruno Fernandes is of interest to Everton and Liverpool have certainly looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA.}

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Mar 2019 08:07:19
Thanks ed.

06 Mar 2019 13:03:38
But they do see the value in 400k a week for treatment table legend aaron ramsey 😂😂.

07 Mar 2019 07:52:12
Love it beef!

04 Mar 2019 05:12:49
Hello Ed02, if you are around mate, have we looked at any attacking players lately? Laxlat was mentioned but any new names?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Laxalt remains available but is very much a LM player. Klopp remains keen on Lorenzo Insigne - but he would be a Salah or Mane replacement but very, very expensive €150M asking price. Brewster and Wilson will have to consider their futures if Liverpool were looking to drop interested in tightening up defence and spend the money on forwards.}

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Mar 2019 05:56:35
Thanks mate! Insigne is utter class like you said Napoli are hard nut to crack and he plays on the left. No ways anyone could afford that price but I like the player. Could you advice the club to look for Brandt? 😁.

04 Mar 2019 06:50:02
Also Brandt has a realease clausle for this summer of 35mio € if i remember correctly. Under Bosz he turned into a more central player which could fit nicley.

04 Mar 2019 10:50:32
An attacking LM could be possible if Mane sits up top, Salah on the Right and Firmino in the number 10 role.

04 Mar 2019 11:13:45
Would love to see that setup with Brandt on the left KC!

04 Mar 2019 13:12:19
Hello Ed002! Maybe Klopp want to play a 4-2-3-1
Salah up top and Insigne, Firmino, Mane behind him we need a top forward or a top CM to complete our first xi.

Ali, A. A, Gom, Van, Rob, Fab, Kei, Insigne, Fir, Man, Sal.

{Ed002's Note - It would not be a surprise to see Liverpool to look at a Coutinho (who is available) or Fekir type player then that is reasonable.}

04 Mar 2019 13:42:06
Ed with Insigne price rage at that figure then surely he is out of reach for nearly al clubs mate? Isn’t he late 20’s also?

{Ed002's Note -VAlue for money given his age and price is far beyond what clubs would look to agree to. The asking price is huge, Napoli are difficult to deal with and he would be a Salah or Mane replacement if anything were to happen.}

04 Mar 2019 13:47:58
Ok mate thank you. I bet some on here would happily swap Salah for him based on the fume after yesterday’s result.

04 Mar 2019 13:51:57
And he is quite well settled at Napoli I believe.

04 Mar 2019 18:31:56
if we want to use a 4-2-3-1/ 4-5-1 dynamic formation effectively for an entire campaign, then the team certainly needs another high-end talent to rotate among the attacking players. i'm not sure insigne makes a lot of sense considering the cost and lack of experience as a striker though. if we're going to invest, i'd look elsewhere for a player that can play the 9 effectively, but also give you something on the wings. ideally werner.

04 Mar 2019 19:02:06
I would like Insigne.

But

My dream would be Dybala, I know it would never happen but he is my dream signing.

04 Mar 2019 21:19:05
Werners off to bayern.

04 Mar 2019 23:21:54
Thanks Ed002! I understand!

05 Mar 2019 11:41:38
if we can free up space by selling Sturridge, Origi, Lallana and Mignolet i cannot see why we can't have Fekir/ Insigne and still keep the front 3. with playing over 70 games in 1 season, surely everybody will play.

we cannot have expectations to compete with City/ Bayern/ Real/ Barca with our current squad.

05 Mar 2019 12:16:26
Eds would Klopp take couthino back? He didn't seem too bothered by his exit.

09 Mar 2019 02:59:27
Dear Ed002

Did I misunderstand your words? Liverpool has an interest on Countinho.?

{Ed002's Note - Clearly you did.}

02 Mar 2019 22:35:09
Echo is reporting the Ox is expected to feature for the under-23s over the coming week.

Agree24 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 00:01:28
yes, read that, great news, and he is really liked by all the staff, players and fans, so its a huge lift,
I have a good feeling about this return from injury,
he is really good for the club .

03 Mar 2019 04:19:05
Could be extremely helpful to inject some energy into midfield as we go into the final run-in.

03 Mar 2019 05:56:46
He’s built like a horse that lad.

03 Mar 2019 11:22:57
I think it's important we don't place too many expectations on him for this season at least. Coming back from a horrible injury often has many set backs. I would expect him to suffer little niggles and strains a lot as he's trying to get back to full fitness.

Next season I'm sure he will be back to his best.

03 Mar 2019 14:37:50
Surely if you’re gunna say that, he’s built like an ox?

04 Mar 2019 07:58:45
He’d better be careful then. another leg injury and they might shoot him.

{Ed025's Note - nice one marshy..

04 Mar 2019 16:14:46
If anyone in the team were built like a horse shouldn't it be Mane?

{Ed025's Note - love it 67..

02 Mar 2019 19:06:09
Hi Eds is there anything in the Matthias Ginter rumours? Would we even deal with Monchengladbach as I'm sure something happened with them over Brewster in the summer? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest from Liverpool - enquiries from two EPL sides came to nothing. If he did move he would want to be a started which will cut out Bayern, as will him having no interest in being used as cover for multiple positions. He would be expensive and is apparently happy.}

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Mar 2019 20:17:14
Interesting thanks Ed002.

28 Feb 2019 05:24:29
Hello Ed02
If you are around, checked the sharkoppd and your latest input. I want to ask if the club are looking at any full backs lately?
There were not much on that front in your sharkopod. We definitely need full backs in the summer imo.
I know Fabinho could play there but we simply cannot move him from the midfield or our midfield would collapse. Do not rate Milner at full back which means we don’t have anyone bar TAA and Robbo.
Thanks for your input.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any declared interest in full backs but Ed001 has suggested that TAA will move to midfield and that would require a RB to be added - I doubt Clyne is in the picture as a starter. Adam Lewis is certainly well thought of and should provide LB cover. Gomez will also be able to provide cover if required.}

Agree3 Disagree4

28 Feb 2019 12:21:03
Thanks for the input Ed02. I guess we would still need a dedicated RB. Gomez should be plying at CB and while Lewis is well thought at LB. The kid has not played any competitive game for us. We lack a dedicated RB apart from TAA. With Clyne off in the summer we don’t have any.

28 Feb 2019 19:27:08
Wan-B. or can Chilwell play on the right also?

28 Feb 2019 20:09:35
I can't really work out entirely how to phrase he question, but purely for example, if the club wanted Wan Bissaka but knew he wasnt available this summer and knew they needed a right back would they typically wait til he was available and hope kids work out in the meantime or just sign a replacement instead? I know hypotheticals are difficult, but it must be a typical problem for clubs to deal with.

28 Feb 2019 22:00:31
We waited for van dike before klopp seems to dig his heels in sometimes.

01 Mar 2019 02:54:27
Harry doesn’t rate them therefore we don’t have anyone me to play in that position lol. Sound logic.

01 Mar 2019 00:43:52
One of the things i like about Klopp is he identifies which players will suit what he needs and then if he can't get them won't waste money on someone else who isn't suitable. Rodgers at times seemed like a kid with money burning a hole in his pocket. Which isn't to say Im a fan of the way klopp has gone about trying to get some of his targets - he certainly isn't perfect.

01 Mar 2019 00:56:59
I personally don’t see any need to move Trent into midfield when he’s clearly a fantastic RB, and it’s such a crucial position with limited alternatives out there. We have an overload of midfielders.

I’d be very happy to have Trent and Robbo play as our main fullbacks next season with Milner, Adam Lewis as cover and Fabinho/ Gomez also capable of playing there in the event that’s really necessary.

In terms of investment I’d go for one top forward over everything else - we need a challenger to our front three and as much as I like him, I’m just not sure Origi is it. Sturridge definitely isn’t.

01 Mar 2019 07:36:33
Fantastic going forward sg but suspect defensively hence why klopp drops him for the big games, usually for gomez with lovren coming in at cb. The lads played cm throughout his youth and was our best u23 player when i was watching down prenton park a few years ago.

If you think his deliveries are good from wide wait until you see him pinging balls from cm, excellent short passing and through balls too, plus he has a good long shot, something we have been crying out for from midfield.

I know i say this a lot but i really want to see what him and wilson can do at cm next season because in the u23s they were unplayable except against utds youth whoo also had some amazing talents, rashford being one, wilson was more of a winger/ striker back then but has been playing deeper under lampard. Kent was also excellent back then and is doing well at rangers.

Id rather us by wan bissaka than another cm as we can develop two of our brightest prospects and trent can still cover rb if needed.

01 Mar 2019 08:18:11
Good points, but I’m not sure he’s suspect defensively by nature Lerchy, I reckons it’s more his inexperience IMO and he’s getting better all the time.

I think in time he’ll be an excellent CM but not next season, we have Fab, Gini, Keita and others there which would crimp his game time. I see him moving there as a natural successor to Hendo/ Gini when that role as box to box player becomes a requirement to be filled.

There’s plenty of time for the lad yet, and I would like to see him swinging those crosses in from the right for another season or two at least!

I watched quite a few of those games on LFCTV and agree with your assessments, although Kent’s end product has always concerned me. he creates chances but Wilson is the clinical one.

01 Mar 2019 08:38:15
Fair points there sg, I can't argue with that. Im sure klopp has a plan.

03 Mar 2019 00:06:02
Got to agree with SG, Trent is good for another couple of seasons at RB, he is improving all the time, I can see him being really highly rated, he has so much potential .

27 Feb 2019 19:25:13
After a short quiet spell the Liverpool Loanees were back to their best at the weekend, much like we are hoping the RedMen are tonight!

Danny Ings continues to miss out through injury and Southampton will be desperate to have him back as soon as possible as they sit in the bottom 3 of the Premier League.

Adam Bogdan and Sheyi Ojo were both unused at the weekend. Meanwhile Pedro Chirivella's loan spell at Extremadura ended before it had even begun as registration problems have left the Spaniard unable to play.



Awoniyi is back at Mouscron and back to his best as his red hot streak in-front of goal continues.

In his 6th game for the club Awoniyi notched his 5th goal, a second half strike that sealed a 1-0 victory against Lokeren.

Since his return Awoniyi has scored 5 goals including 3 match winners. He has also notched 2 assists. Jurgen Klopp are you watching.



Ejaria was back in the Reading starting line up this weekend after recovering from illness as The Royals faced Rotherham in the Sky Bet Championship.

And it was a dream return for the youngster as he hit a sweet half volley to put Reading 1-0 up. Unfortunately the Royals could not hold onto the lead as the game finished 1-1 but it was good to see Ejaria back to his best after a frustrating campaign.



Rangers played twice last week. The first was a 5-0 victory over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup. The second was a 5-0 victory over Hamilton in the league.

Ryan Kent was central to these victories playing both games and notching 2 assists in the process.

Since the season restarted after the Winter Break Kent has notched 4 assists and 2 goals as he looks to finish the season on a high.



Allan Rodrigues made his first appearance for Fluminense this weekend as he looks to kick start his season after a difficult start.

The midfielder made his first bow for the club coming on as a second half sub as Fluminense beat Bangu 2-0.



Hertha Berlin faced Bayern Munch this weekend with Grujic looking to make his mark against Liverpool's Champions League opponents.

Despite a lively display in midfield Grujic was unable to prevent Hertha falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat. He will be hoping his parent club will fare better at the Allianz Arena in a few weeks time.



Grabara conceded his first goals for AGF a the weekend and with those goals came his first defeat as AGF lost 2-1 to Midtjylland.



Clyne continued his impressive form for Bournemouth at Right Back as he made his fifth appearance for the club at the weekend.

Bournemouth faced Wolves in the Premier League and Clyne produced a typically solid display as the game finished 1-1.



The ever present Herbie Kane made his 38th appearance of the season at the weekend for Doncaster as the Dons faced Scunthorpe in a local derby.

Kane produced a solid performance and played the full 90 as the game finished 1-1.



Young Liam Millars wait for a start continued this weekend as yet again he found himself warming the bench for Kilmarnock.

He did however get a late run out as Kilmarnock lost 1-0 to Livingstone.



There were two reds in action on Monday night as Wilson's Derby faced Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands Derby.

Karius was also in action for Besiktas as they faced Fenerbace in the Istanbul Derby.

Unfortunately it was a frustrating evening for both as Wilson put in an ineffective performance, got booked and finally subbed in the 70th minute as Derby lost to Forest 1-0.

Meanwhile Fenerbache pulled off an 'Istanbul Moment' in Istanbul as they come from 3-0 down at half time to eventually draw 3-3 with Besiktas leaving Karius and his team mates extremely frustrated.

And that's your lot :)

28 Feb 2019 05:34:53
I appreciate your work carragold, but it wouldn't be remiss for you to cite thisisanfield. com, which is surely your source for these updates. Thanks!

28 Feb 2019 06:28:43
Cheers carra.

28 Feb 2019 09:14:40
Carra, fantastic update as ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter whether Professor Klopp is keeping an eye on Awoniyi, the player is as far away from a work permit as the day he arrived.


Neither Awoniyi, Allan Rodrigues or Arroyo will ever play for our club as a few minutes on the Gov. UK website will confirm. Sad but true.

28 Feb 2019 11:02:56
Apparently Clyne scored a couple of crackers the weekend we played Bournemouth.

28 Feb 2019 13:18:02
Big love dude thanks x.

01 Mar 2019 09:23:29
Hi Ed’s in terms of Danny Ings as Carra points out he Misses’s out again through injury, what sort of impacts would his injuries have on his deal going through in the summer. Obviously when for he walks into their team but did they have any sort of clause put in where he has to be available for a certain percentage of games of anything for them to have to purchase Ings or are they able to pull out of the deal?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - They have a commitment to buy, but obviously if there is a major issue it can be reviewed.}

03 Mar 2019 09:56:24
Thanks carra 😘

Reading won 1-2 btw 😉.

27 Feb 2019 19:22:07
Just a question for any of the Ed's that are available. Over the last few seasons, there have been some former Championship players that have become impact players for Premier League teams.

Are there any current Championship players you think we should keep an eye on, and are there any that Liverpool may be interested in? I don't get to see Championship matches where I am, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB), but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2019 19:42:02
Ed2 - you are the wind beneath our wings sir! 😊
Thanks so much for all your incredible contribution!

{Ed002's Note - I guessed it would be "wind" based.}

27 Feb 2019 19:46:02
Thanks Ed!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

27 Feb 2019 21:00:48
Thank you for the info as ever Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

27 Feb 2019 22:27:34
Ed2! good to see you around, thanks for the info, hows things?

{Ed002's Note - I am kicking my heels before leaving real early on Friday. Great result tonight and boosting the goals.}

27 Feb 2019 22:41:40
Who do you support ed 02? Just as a matter of interest.

{Ed002's Note - I have a soft spot for a few sides, Greenock Morton, Chelsea, and obviously Marseille. When I was a beautiful, pretty child with the most amazing hair there were no teams nearby. When i moved to England in 1981 my wife and I moved to Chelsea, close to the ground.}

27 Feb 2019 23:06:21
Hahaha ok thanx I don't know why but I thought u supported man United for some reason, balotelli is scoring still, and great result for Chelsea, greenock Morton I am not up on, cheers .

27 Feb 2019 23:49:35
Are you mates with jason manning? 😆. Admit you have a soft spot for us as well ed, the best fans in the land.

27 Feb 2019 11:15:30
Nice to see you around ed002, bild are reporting that werner has agreedd to join bayern this summer. Do you know if this is true or not? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - All I know is that Forster has met yet again and this time Bayern Munich have put an acceptable package together - now they need to settle on a fee with his club. This has all been expected, but nothing is finalised.}

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Feb 2019 16:34:20
Pesonally i think insigne will be the no1 target. Napoli bid for icardi. Read into that what you will.

27 Feb 2019 18:35:46
I will read past the £100m transfer fee and take it with a pinch of salt.

27 Feb 2019 18:35:30
Thanks ed, and i can't see that rio the guys nearly 30.

28 Feb 2019 11:50:02
Hello Ed002! Apart from Werner are we interested in any other forward? Are we interested in Luka Jovic or Piatek?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in Jovic who would certainly not want to move to sit on the bench. Piatek moved last month and won’t be joining Liverpool. Insigne is liked by Klopp but he would be a Salah or mane replacement, is getting on a bit and has a huge asking price, so I would scratch him. Liverpool has Brewster waiting in the wings and I would think he provides a very good option - else he might want to consider his options.}

28 Feb 2019 16:44:21
thanks Ed002!

21 Feb 2019 17:31:18
Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.

Agree10 Disagree2

21 Feb 2019 18:12:34
* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!

21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.

21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.

23 Feb 2019 14:21:18
👀 . You're slipping Zed.
