Any update on Gomez return or any other injuries please? Anyone no if Firmino Clyne and Klavan now injured also?

{Ed001's Note - Gomez is due back at the very end of the month, Firmino has a knock and will need a fitness test to see if he can face Bournemouth. Clyne and Klavan have been ruled out of the game by Klopp.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2018 18:19:44
Cheers ed. Jesus the injuries keep coming mate don't they. Making it hard to rest any players, especially in defence.

12 Apr 2018 16:30:08
Afternoon all, Ed1 if your about buddy, first off hope your well. Any news on Milner being offered new terms? He is a must keep for me one of our most influential players!

{Ed001's Note - he is contracted for one more year yet and there is a one year option in the deal, so don't stress yet.}

Agree17 Disagree0

12 Apr 2018 19:10:51
Ah good i had been told his contract was up this summer. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

12 Apr 2018 20:41:43
Do you think he will get much of a look in ed next season ed with the arrival of Keita and another? I think youve said already Lallana is likely to leave.

{Ed001's Note - so long as he maintains his fitness levels yes.}

13 Apr 2018 07:10:28
It's funny how things change, with Can leaving and Wiji's form now in question Milner is likely to be our fourth midfielder (or fifth if we bring in a midfielder beyond Keita) . I like it when a player forces his way into contention though good form and hard work.

13 Apr 2018 08:52:19
The plan is that Keita arrives with another sitting CM tbh. Is right ed?

{Ed001's Note - yep.}

13 Apr 2018 13:29:08
Milner is playing class at the moment. I'm really struggling to get a picture of the midfield next year as we don't play with an AM currently and have very similar players

We definitely need a WORLD CLASS AM as we played with couts and to rotate with front three, as we won't buy a world class striker to sit on bench.

I see LEMAR / JORGINHO / CELLABOS or similar roles coming in as they seem constantly linked.

CM AM DM
keita-OX / Lemar-Cellabos / jorg-hendo

where gigi-milner-lallana-wilson-woodburn will fit in I don't know.

ED. will klopp go for Lemar and Cellabos or just looking at the one AM.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over both arriving Riomazy.}

13 Apr 2018 14:21:37
Cellabos is the one most likely to leave his club, also the price will be much lower than Lemar, who I think is a bit over rated .

13 Apr 2018 15:30:14
Ox Cellabos Keita looks like a good 3 in midfield to me. Milner Hendo Gini to rotate when needed.

Ed are we any nearer to a Sharkopod please so we can try and get a clear picture of what we are looking to do in Midfield please?

Sorty to ask. Please don't snap🤔.

{Ed002's Note - By the very basic principles of physics we are nearer all future events than we were before. I have explained before about midfield players and I am not aware of anything having changed at this time. So there is nothing new here:
Jorginho (DM) - Naturally more defensive than Emre Can and might require a change of tactics from Klopp if Liverpool were to get the best out of him in a similar position - interest from elsewhere and a move elsewhere more likely - player wants Manchester City.
Wilfred Ndidi (DM) - Another PL side are certainly ready to try and persuade Leicester to sell but they will resist a move this summer - as for a move to Liverpool, I know nothing of it.
Dani Ceballos (CM) a loan is possible before a decision is made but I still expect Liverpool to become involved in trying to strike a deal.
Kerem Demirbay (CM/AM) - Personally I don't seeany chance whatsoever of a move to Liverpool happening.
Max Meyer (M) interest from London sides, Italy and particularly RBL, with his club also wanting a new contract.
Valon Berisha (M) - Has been watched by scouts of several sides including Liverpool but only one has opened talks -mand it is not Liverpool.}

13 Apr 2018 16:07:44
Hi Ed001,
What’s your opinion of Milner recently?

Personally think he has improved a lot and seems to be contributing to the team rather than just running around a lot.

{Ed001's Note - he has been getting better and more influential.}

13 Apr 2018 17:51:23
Chees for update ed really appreciate it. I think from that lot Ceballos is more likely than all others based on what's been explained.

Thanks again.

13 Apr 2018 23:02:06
Question to ED002 if possible.

If you were looking to bring the midfield player/ s in who would be your particular choices?

I don't mean out of the usual names banded around either necessarily. which players do you think could be realistic acquisitions and good buys, i guess is a better way of wording it.

All the best.

{Ed002's Note - Keita is arriving and he needs some work early on but it may work out OK. Ceballos is a player who has been of interest for a while and would be a good buy at the right price. That should do the club this summer in terms of out and out midfield players and they would be good choices - although the club has agreed a way over the odds price for Keita. Unless someone is leaving it is hard to suggest another player who would come in.}

14 Apr 2018 00:11:46
Think the midfield done great recently if we can just get them An the crowd motivated the same as against city don’t see to many problems.

14 Apr 2018 08:48:29
Hi Ed. Just a thought please, Draxler not been mentioned above but has previously. Is this because he is seen as an attacker rather than a CM.

{Ed002's Note - There are no attackers or wingers listed - you asked about midfield players. Give me a break.}

12 Apr 2018 08:54:58
Eds do you know if we have any interest in Ben Wilmot? the 19 year old CB at Stevenage?

{Ed002's Note - I had been told (but took no notice) that a move to Watford could be agreed for the kid. With Liverpool's transfer ban I am not sure how they could complete the transfer right now. Certainly Spurs were interested as well.}

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Apr 2018 09:54:38
When is the ban over?

{Ed002's Note - April 2019 although they can sign players this coming summer if there are (a) no open charges, (b) no further infractions, and (c) the club can demonstrate that they made the payments that they were committed to.}

12 Apr 2018 11:17:30
I really hope this ban was a wake up call to Liverpool, no one can try and brush over what we did. It was wrong!

But I hope not only does this reform how we are to young players but that it is a lesson to all clubs. Kids aren’t just assets to buy they need to be treated as proper humans!

12 Apr 2018 11:07:24
Thanks Ed!

12 Apr 2018 13:06:49
So he can sign in the summer then.

{Ed002's Note - As I said, if there are (a) no open charges, (b) no further infractions, and if (c) the club can demonstrate that they made the payments that they were committed to. This of course if Liverpool are interested.}

12 Apr 2018 00:11:34
A bit left field but has anyone seen Kenedy play for Newcastle this season? Could he be an option for cover of our wingers?

Have we ever shown any interest in home, Eds?

Ta

Z.

{Ed001's Note - not recently no.}

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Apr 2018 12:16:23
The guy who got sent home from China for racist comments? Hope we’ve learned our lessons regarding those kind of issues.

12 Apr 2018 16:40:32
Good player doing well for Rafa all young players make mistakes and I do not condone racism but I do not know the facts either so I would hang him out to dry.

12 Apr 2018 17:41:44
He’s not that good. Average at best.

10 Apr 2018 17:55:45
Ed002, a previously accurate Austrian journalist has said we've made contact with valon berishas representatives. Do you have any information or are you aware of any interest?

{Ed002's Note - Valon Berisha has been watched by scouts of several sides including Liverpool but only one PL side has opened talks - and it is not Liverpool.}

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 17:47:25
Hypothetical one but rumours are picking up pace saying Rashford and Martial (just turned down a contract offer) want out of Utd. If this is the case what's people's opinion on who they would take if it was an option. For me I would prefer Rashford but I think both would excel under Klopp and would soon be pushing our brilliant front 3 for a starting place under his guidance.

Agree11 Disagree6

10 Apr 2018 18:11:54
True, both would be an explosion under Klopp!

10 Apr 2018 18:19:11
Definetly Rashford, tho I don't like them both for reasons. Martial got a debut goal againts us and Rashford you know what he did it was soon haha. Tho I don't want anyone from MU near our club.

10 Apr 2018 18:24:27
i'd love either of them any day but i think they would cost an arm and a leg!

10 Apr 2018 18:46:23
Was talking about this today with a United fan. a united fan with the fear of Jose doing a Jose and selling any young talent and replacing them with top players at 30 years of age. Might win a trophy or 2 but then he'll F off and leave them with a team of old lads.
Also saying how Jose just doesn't improve players and how good these two would become under a klopp type manager.

10 Apr 2018 22:44:54
I was thinking about this earlier. If it wasn’t the simple fact Rash plays for United I reckon fans would be begging for us to eat him in as would be an amazing fit IMO.

That being said, he clearly wants to be a starter wherever he goes - so that’d Make it even less likely than it already is.

11 Apr 2018 02:46:54
As wrong as it sounds, I do like Rashford as a player. He has bags of potential for his age and I can only see him improving under the right manager. Sadly though, in reality, what are the chances for transfer to happen between Liv and MU. I would say almost 0% chance of it happening. So, let's just forget about this and move on.

11 Apr 2018 08:58:59
Neither would start in our team, and neither are attainable, although at this point in time Rashford is the better forward.

11 Apr 2018 09:53:14
I did say Hypothetical. Apologies for trying to ask a question which has clearly upset the thumbs down brigade and the fans who refuse to acknowledge anything football wise outside of Liverpool. Must be life and souls of the parties they attend.

11 Apr 2018 10:37:57
It could always involve a move to a team that doesn't really work out for them. Like when we bought Paul Ince from Inter.

11 Apr 2018 13:16:50
de Gea and Martial are probably the only United players i would love at Liverpool.

11 Apr 2018 13:38:22
What about Smalling?

12 Apr 2018 11:14:37
Sometimes a thumbs down can be a no as an answer rather than a no to the question, it's not always a dig mate. That being said, I'd have either of them but they'd have to put up with the same situation in terms of game time, though the football would be better for them!

09 Apr 2018 19:10:11
Just saw an article on us being interested in Ndidi, person breaking story is the same who broke the Keita deal.

Agree14 Disagree1

09 Apr 2018 20:27:13
Not true mate im affraid. Ed001 has said he is one he would go after but no interest from us sadly.

09 Apr 2018 20:42:55
Yes Nndidi.

09 Apr 2018 23:22:29
Would love Ndidi.

10 Apr 2018 08:13:23
Sound like ned Flanders ace!

10 Apr 2018 13:38:39
Ndiddly squat ;)

10 Apr 2018 17:21:20
Would prefer Doucoure personally.

09 Apr 2018 12:29:29
Juve Boss Marotta said that there will be a decision in terms of Cans Transfer in the next 10 days.

I thought he canceld all contract talks till summer. Is that just Juves Deadline because they need to plan ahead or is it just something he said to create pressure on Can?

Agree4 Disagree1

09 Apr 2018 14:50:49
I belive both, as Juve and not only them but the clubs overall needs to plan ahead, and Can needs some pressure as he really is holding them and us aswell.

09 Apr 2018 16:10:26
Can could well have kicked his last ball in an LFC shirt.

09 Apr 2018 18:22:40
If he if he doesn't want to stay an commit get rid in my opinion no one is bigger than the club.

09 Apr 2018 20:19:33
It’s not about him committing. He knows he’s falling down the pecking order with Keita arriving.
If Lallana has remained fit, Can would have played a lot less this season.
You can’t question his commitment.
He gives his all.
It’s a shame he just hasn’t pushed on.

09 Apr 2018 21:39:32
Truth hurts - If he doesn’t want to stay then he will leave, we have no say in the matter.

10 Apr 2018 10:57:56
I don't see the point of getting all twisted and upset because Can is almost certain to be leaving. During the course of his stay with us he has been used as utility defender and midfielder and for most of the games acquitted himself well, we signed a promising kid and should just be happy for the man he has become playing here. Cans'professionalism has not Been called into question once and he has not disrupted the team in the same way as others who have left. I say good luck to Can and wish him well in whatever club he chooses as long as he never plays well against us.

10 Apr 2018 18:11:33
He hardly plays well against anyone else so Sod's law says he'll be awesome against us.

10 Apr 2018 18:19:00
Why would he make decision whilst we are still in Europe? If he was fit he would start tonight. We have a chance even slim of winning it, why would he cut his own throat. if he says he's going klopp would lose the trust of his other midfielders if he got a game in the final wouldn't he.

11 Apr 2018 11:08:47
flidby - I'd have to disagree there actually. I think his commitment is a major part of the problem - he gives his all in the big games but he's one of the worst in the squad for switching off and taking it easy against the so called smaller teams, and I can count at least 5 times he's avoided a hard challenge or a tactical foul that ended up costing us badly. I could not say with confidence that he gives his all - I think he's been saving himself to try and catch someones eye this year.

08 Apr 2018 22:57:07
Reading were looking at fellani surely not please.

{Ed025's Note - no..

Agree2 Disagree52

08 Apr 2018 23:06:48
First April was couple of days ago mate.

08 Apr 2018 23:07:47
I’ve tapped the thumbs down button at least 10 times but only 1 registers unfortunately.

08 Apr 2018 23:07:56
Thank you can sleep now.

08 Apr 2018 23:18:10
Read it on joe UK tonight.

09 Apr 2018 00:15:48
The clickbait sites must be getting desperate reporting such dross.

09 Apr 2018 01:54:09
Surely it’s only Blackpool pleasure beach who are after donkeys?

09 Apr 2018 06:54:08
Read the same thing in the german media. Ex Everton and Ex United. No way we would ever go for him with that history. (Also i think there has only been one transfer between Liverpool and United ever and that was back in 1964 or something like that)

09 Apr 2018 08:37:43
I couldn’t think of a single player less likely.

09 Apr 2018 09:22:28
Apart from Rooney SGRed, I'm the same.

09 Apr 2018 10:57:58
Fellani and Liverpool should never ever be mentioned in the same sentence ever, period. Ever.

09 Apr 2018 11:26:19
There's a pattern there somewhere. Every time there's a player on the end of his contract, and is available on a free, we somehow are immediately linked. Lazy journalism at its best, as if that's the criteria the team uses for recruits. Hilarious.

09 Apr 2018 11:50:41
Surely Reading can't afford his wages? Although they need some help staying in the Championship.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced Fellaini could raise his game to reach Championship level.}

09 Apr 2018 14:51:44
ed1 nailed it here.

09 Apr 2018 19:16:37
Id prefer to take the bog brush he modeled himself on.

10 Apr 2018 22:25:00
Piff im glad I wasn’t the only one who thought he meant Reading as in the team xD.

08 Apr 2018 18:38:47
Hi Eds,

What does danny ings future look like? Seems like he will be given the chance to be firminos backup but if we are offered 15-20m surely we have to take it.

{Ed001's Note - right now he wants to stay so it is unclear.}

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Apr 2018 20:02:20
Happy for him to stay, think with a few more chances he has ability. If firmino is out Ings mane and Salah is good enough, it's the wide areas I think we're short.

08 Apr 2018 20:26:45
I like Danny and i feel for him but i don't think he is good enough for us. solanke desperately needs a loan next season and then review him on his return. he doesn't convince me either I've got to be honest. We shall see.

{Ed025's Note - im with you ben..

08 Apr 2018 20:42:04
I do like ings but more for his personality! I think his technical ability is lacking in his touch and finishing but his movement is good. I don't see us buying a wide player Firmane if klopp gets lemar he will cover lw like coutinho did when mane was out earlier this season and ox will cover the right although he is just not a good winger. I see woodburn getting more chances this year so he's another option and i think klopp is waiting for pulisic anyway when he's more gettable, his contract expires in 2020 so maybe next year.

08 Apr 2018 21:51:57
Ings is a useful player but clearly two years out has impact his game and I think we need someone who’s a genuine challenger for the front 3 - whether that’s a wide player to then alllow Mane or Salah to move central, or a striker (who perhaps can bring something different to the table a la Giroud) .

Solanke has had enough chances but has yet to convince, I think he needs a loan like Tammy Abrahams to get more time to develop.

08 Apr 2018 22:54:23
I did suggest amath ndiaye as cover for the forward line but more I think about it I really believe in woodburn and he should be getting those chances not a new signing. Like eds have said klopp will only tinker with the team slightly because he has built a good spirit.

I hope Klopp reconsiders buying a rb and back up gk for next season tho rather keep Gomez/ trent there while Gomez gets games at cb in cup games like eds have mentioned and ward for back up gk. Instead get a proper cb who isn't injury prone in my pick is clement lenglet for 30m and we have to go for sessegnon if fulham do not get promoted. Jorginho, Keita and Lemar to top it off, I'd say that is realistic financially with the number of players that should be sold.

09 Apr 2018 00:45:17
Xabi,

I agree about Woodburn. Id like to see him either get more game time with us or go out on loan. He needs to play.

But im not sure if I agree that Jorginho, Keita and Lemar are realistic financially (esp if we were to get Clement) . can't see us making much from sales. Plus if the figures being bandied around of Keita costing 90mill and Lemar being quoted at 90 (and Jorginho won't come cheap either since I can't see Napoli being willing to sell him), its highly unlikely we would go for all 3.

09 Apr 2018 07:25:05
Xabi its probably best to judge him once he has a consistent run of games under his belt. I think he can be good for us if he gets game time.

The real question is who do you prefer is the squad striker, origi or Ings? its looking like wolfsburg will not retain his services next season.

09 Apr 2018 08:16:32
I like Ings and he must have huge heart and determination on the training pitch to come back from serious injury twice and get a place back in the team, i just don't think he's good enough to help us progress.

09 Apr 2018 08:47:16
I believe if you want to challenge for the top you need at least 4 first team ready starters for the front three positions so you can rest someone or cover an injury at any team without materially weakening your starting lineup. City have Sane, Aguero, Jesus, Sterling.

Ings and Solanke aren’t that 4th player and even Ings is a question mark for me. We should ideally go for a top player who can play either wide or through the middle and let either Ings or Solanke go on loan IMO.

09 Apr 2018 08:48:25
Square Tomato seems to think he is leaving, possibly for Newcastle, good move for him if that’s the case! I think we need someone who isn’t an out and out striker but someone who can cover the front line.

09 Apr 2018 11:29:21
I think we should try for Batshuayi. He's having a great year at Dortmund (on loan from Chelsea) and he offers a different style of attack to when Firmino is not firing in the goals or is injured. And we haven't done too badly with ex-Chelsea players (Sturridge and Salah) .

09 Apr 2018 13:27:17
PakRed

Klopps picks ings over origi everyday. Origi just isn't doing enough to fulfil his potential, he hasn't for years. Even when he had that period he was scoring for us I thought he was so poor in his overall play. He doesn't fit in this liverpool team better to sell him.

What do you think our sales will be in the summer as well?

09 Apr 2018 15:16:18
Origi, Markovic, Grujic, Flanagan, Klavan, Mignolet. Also think Can will leave. So we need a GK, a midfielder to replace Can (I see Keita as more of an attacking presence but some will consider him an upgrade on Can) and one more center defender. I hope we don't do much of an overhaul on the current squad, but I would like to see someone come in to challenge Firmino and Solanke to get some loan time with a prem team.

09 Apr 2018 18:36:14
Guys. I think we should give both the lads a chance. Klopp and co when give time have changed our opinions of players who we thought weren't good enough. When pre season comes Klopp and his team will then have time to coach these players and also they will all be on the same plate as the rest in regardes to fitness. I personally think Ings and Solanke needs games to correct their decision making. Once they find it I reckon they will help the squad.

{Ed025's Note - you are talking about the sheffield wednesday squad right?..
