Talk of Liverpool being in talks with Bournemouth for a deal for Ryan Fraser in January, would be a decent backup.


1.) 11 Nov 2019 16:43:01
Many Bournemouth fans feel he's gone a bit stale this season after playing well last (most assists in league I think) however this could be due to him running down his contract and clearly looking for a 'better' move.

2.) 11 Nov 2019 16:58:51
Can’t be any truth in us after Fraser Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - It makes little sense to me if true. His contract runs out in the summer and there is interest from elsewhere so a move for him now, given that Bournemouth have so far not agreed a new deal, miight see some sort of deal including Harry Wilson. Whilst he has not performed as well as expected this season the capability is in there somewhere. Right now I am on the train heading for Heathrow so checking is not so easy.}

3.) 11 Nov 2019 17:19:18
No worries Ed mate appreciate your reply anyway keep us informed please.

4.) 11 Nov 2019 18:20:08
He’s better than Shaq and Wilson and is more fitting to Klopps style of play.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 21:14:44
Oh baby I hear the blues are calling.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 09:48:57
I thought we only sell to Bournemouth and buy from Southampton?

7.) 14 Nov 2019 15:41:18
Check the lads assist rate out it’s pretty impressive and maybe that’s what interests Klopp.



04 Jan 2019 14:30:41
The rumour seems to be Solanke going Brighton on a permanent deal, best for both parties imo.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:49:53
Ed2 if your around has the solanke fee been sorted? I mean have we settled his compensation fee.

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is all done.}



05 Jul 2018 07:29:41
Been told by someone who works within the club that Shaqiri is coming and Klopp is going to stick with Karius as number 1 contrary to reports. Hardly over the moon with either really but the same source did seem to think Gotze was nailed on a couple of seasons back so I hope things change again.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 09:30:04
Let's see what happens. Shaqiri just doesn't seem like a klopp player.
Karius deserves some slack from our fans either way. YNWA should apply for karius too.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 09:45:33
If that’s true I think Shaqiri will eventually take Karius’s place 🤝.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:25:59
That's an upgrade Ron.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 12:05:54
Ed001 is 100% spot friggin on regarding Shaqiri. There is talent in the academy that should get a look before making a signing like this. I think it’s a waste of money. Not necessarily because I don’t think he is any good, but if we are just making signings for cover as some suggest what is the point of having an academy? If we do sign Shaqiri I will support him and hope that he does well but give the youngsters a proper chance.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 12:13:52
stone - this is nothing new with Shaqiri or even with Klopp. It’s the modern day game which demands quick, regular success.

If Klopp had won something then maybe he could take a risk with a youngster, but he’s under pressure to deliver this season and everyone moaned about how weak our bench was in the CL final.

{Ed001's Note - and it has improved by buying 2 first team players so that those that were in the first team will now be on the bench. Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger and are merely just there for 'cover'?}

6.) 05 Jul 2018 12:26:42
Agreed totally.
However, every time there was a rumour that we are buying first 11 material, the default response from an ed is either “unless Salah is leaving” or “if Mane were to leave”.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. Did anyone say anything of the kind when Fekir was close? You are mixing up your own ridiculous expectations with the truth. Some players would only be signed if Salah or Mane were to leave. Some would be bought to improve the team as it is.}

7.) 05 Jul 2018 12:45:47
Ey ed if klopp can screw shaqiri head on and he can make an impact in say 10/ 12, where we can also give Salah a rest then for the reported 12 million it's a bargain.

If however he just flops and we want to sell, were not going to lose anything major, as I've said before someone like West ham would probably pay 20/ 25 mil next year. Even he has just a handful of good games.

Got people saying why didn't they sign him now, well liverpool want him and there hardly going to compete with klopp or champions league now are they.

{Ed001's Note - if West Ham would pay that much, why don't they just sign him for 12 now? You are making no sense.}

8.) 05 Jul 2018 13:06:39
''Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger. ''

Because if they replace mane, he ain't going to sit on the bench. We don't have a world class midfield and they can be subs. we have world class attack that won't be subs. solanke ings Sturridge don't fit the mould and ain't good enough.

So improve your bench. Man city have an unbelievable bench. klopp is trying to address the issue.

{Ed001's Note - Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench.}

9.) 05 Jul 2018 13:44:56
I get your point ron but if we are buying for “cover” that is partly what the academy is for. To buy a player to simply cover is a waste of money in my view. How many times have we read on here from so many asking why the youngsters aren’t given a chance? I hope they get a legitimate chance during the pre-season. Just my opinion.

10.) 05 Jul 2018 14:01:51
Remember on the 25th of May when nearly everyone was saying how good Karius had been and that they'd be happy for him to be first choice next season? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

11.) 05 Jul 2018 14:23:33
Ed I answered you question in my post.

They probably do want to sign him now but he's probably going to choose us for the champions league and were liverpool.

If however he doesn't work out I'm sure they would still be interested and the going rate for a good rw like him is about 20/ 25 million. Plus if he has a few good games but wants more game time than we can offer then maybe we sell him as a prize asset for like 30 mil.

{Ed001's Note - you haven't answered my question, you are just making guesses.}

12.) 05 Jul 2018 14:31:47
Totally on board with ed here. I would much prefer we either buy someone that would put our first teamers on the bench or give Harry Wilson the cover job than Shaqiri be brought in. But if he bought he will have my support. There is a player in there somewhere, and if anyone can get it out of him it’s Klopp.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 14:19:07
Poor guy I feel sorry for Karius. He was doing well up until the final and had shocker yes but that can happen to anyone. Look at De Gea for Spain (yet everyone still classed him as one of the worlds best.

I do think we should upgrade don’t get me wrong but if we can’t get the guy we want, we wait until we can. Karius is still a decent keeper and I think with our midfield improved significantly he should be called up less

I just hope to god he doesn’t read this site. What happened to YNWA? Embarrassed to be a Liverpool fan at times.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 14:53:04
Makes sense to spend 200m on neymar and put mane on bench. and when he leaves spend 300m on mbappe and put neymar on bench. or fingers crossed we have unearthed an entire squad of WC subs. as shown on many an fa/ efl cup game.

15.) 05 Jul 2018 15:10:35
Does any of our opinions or the Eds opinions matter, if Klopp wants him then he sees something, isn't that all there is to it. Klopp doesn't care if you think he's lazy or someone else thinks he has a bad attitude or if Ed thinks there's better in the academy or elsewhere, it's the managers choice. I'm all for opinion but don't be absolutely hammering a player because he's being linked with us. Mane had issues pre_Liverpool, Keita has had his fair share too, let's see what happens and who knows, he might win golden boot out of nowhere next season.

16.) 05 Jul 2018 15:25:36
Considering the other options bandied about it for goalkeeper I’d far rather stick with Karius and make Ward number 2, sell Mignolet and bring in an experience third choice. Besides which, Karius is a young lad and will learn from that night in Kiev.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 16:05:37
Who is putting mane, Salah or b9bby on the bench? Answer me that.

Second ed. There isn't a single premier league team who want shaqiri? Who have struggled offering what we can?

{Ed001's Note - he has been touted around everyone, that is all I know.}

18.) 05 Jul 2018 16:50:07
Far enough ed. I wasn't arguing with you but I just don't think there is much to stress out with this transfer. We will make pleanty and release loads of wages once the likes of sturdier have been offloaded.

Secondly no matter how good you are you always need something off the bench and signing smartly isn't always the worst idea. I personally think fergie would of signed him, lime he did solskajer, chicharito, Larson etc. He knew having some good back up on the bench was a smart move but there isn't always better than what you have out there. Which in this case unless it was Messi or Ronaldo I think our front 3 are irreplaceable. Maybe apart from mane but only slightly.

{Ed001's Note - none of those players were bought for the bench, they were all seen as players with the potential to be first choice. Fergie was never afraid to leave a gap in the squad for youth players.}

19.) 05 Jul 2018 17:09:03
Isn't it constantly mentioned that it is a squad game now, we are not signing him for the bench we are signing him for the squad. We need squad players who are good enough to play premier league games when we are resting the likes of Salah for CL games. Yes we need spaces for kids to get game time and develop but we also need experience to be able to stand a chance in those games.

20.) 05 Jul 2018 17:19:42
and I think shaqiri is more than good enough for the bench but has the talent that if klopp can screw his bloody head on and he thrives in our attacking play could become a first team player.

I just think your way out with this one. He is a good player. Solid. If klopp makes it click. Well he might just supirse a lot of us.

Like Henderson, Chamberlain, Salah, mane, Robertson, Trent, Loren, Milner. So much negativity surrounded all of those players. Deemed wastes of money or not good enough for liverpool. They where all first team starters in the cl campaign and resulting final last year.

Yes we can't label every llayer we sign with klopps magic wand but we can't just discount how good he has proven to be with players who where deemed not good enough!

21.) 05 Jul 2018 18:08:34
its all a moot point if the karius rumour is true. we won't win anything unless we buy a quality keeper.

22.) 05 Jul 2018 19:31:12
StevieJesus we’re not gong to get Oblak and there really isn’t much point shopping in the reject pile for the likes of Navas or Cillessen as they’re not quality at all. So we should give Karius our support.

23.) 05 Jul 2018 19:37:48
I agree FMS. Well said mate.

24.) 06 Jul 2018 03:41:23
The underlying assumption to this raging debate seems to be that we are buying Shaquiri for "cover".

What is the basis for this assumption?

25.) 06 Jul 2018 07:44:23
That he's not good enough to displace any of our current front 3. Not many are, to be fair.

26.) 06 Jul 2018 08:47:28
Defo strongly agree with Ed about buying players for the first 11 and therefore strengthening the bench with proven first 11 players from last years. Despite being unlucky with injuries at the end of last season we lacked 2-3 players who can come on and make an impact.

Dybala for me would fit the profile and is an excellent player. More mobile than Fekir and I believe fits better with the now dynamic midfield we have to match our front 3. The system can be tweaked for different games giving
Us a plan B and allowing us to compete in all comps.

Still think we need a keeper but in Klopp I trust.

27.) 06 Jul 2018 10:38:57
"Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench."
And the same with Fergie's United. The way to build a strong squad is buying players who can be starters and take someone's place, then it's up to the player who gets dropped to the bench to improve and fight for the place back.

Buying backup players gets you nowhere, just look at Chelsea last season for the perfect example. Deserved champions one season and a big league flop the next. They signed Morata, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Emerson, Caballero, Giroud and even Ross flippin Barkley for a total of almost a quarter of a billion pounds and NONE of them improved the first team.

So yes it would be VERY difficult to improve on our starting forwards, so I'd prefer if we go for a younger player on lower wages who9 can play on but wings and has more potential to learn and improve, like Moses Simon for example.



07 Mar 2018 06:43:15
The club are struggling to persuade Rhian Brewster to stay at the club. He's keen on a move to Germany with Dortmund keen on him.
He believes he has a greater chance of breaking through in their set up and in all honesty taking my Liverpool hat off he's probably correct.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 09:59:36
he won't play for 8 months, he just had a terrible injury!

2.) 07 Mar 2018 10:33:06
Nostradamus- It still doesn’t take away from the fact he wants to leave.

3.) 07 Mar 2018 10:44:05
Where have you got this info?

4.) 07 Mar 2018 11:20:49
A source within the club.

{Ed002's Note - I told you about this months ago - I am not a "source" within the club.}

5.) 07 Mar 2018 11:25:07
It'd help his cause to break through if he could stay fit, two seperate breaks this season isn't it?

6.) 07 Mar 2018 11:35:47
But in some regions you are considered a sauce?

{Ed002's Note - A couple of bars in Chelsea, yes.}

7.) 07 Mar 2018 12:35:18
I haven’t got the info from you ed2,I have got this from someone within the club.

{Ed002's Note - That is fine - but it is far from new.}

8.) 07 Mar 2018 12:49:19
I’m just passing on what iv been told from a good source, if that backs up what you have said previously then fair play to you finding out earlier.

9.) 07 Mar 2018 13:21:08
Well goodbye and good luck.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 14:45:06
I hope we can keep hold of him, he looks a talent.

11.) 07 Mar 2018 14:47:02
To be fair a move to Germany could be very good. He could develop and stay out of the limelight a bit, he'd be watched like a hawk if he broke into our 1st team anytime soon.

What's his contract situation? Is he on a pro contract yet or would he move to Germany on a free (plus compensation ) .

We'd do well to sell him with a buy back clause and maybe get him back in a few years once he's developed a bit more.

12.) 07 Mar 2018 15:12:25
It makes sense from his perspective sadly. The Premier League is hyper-competitive, more than it has ever been before, and arguably the most competitive league in Europe. Younger players, unless they are truly spectacular, just don't get that many opportunities at the top sides in the Premier League - I think any youngster who had real ambition would be wise to look to Europe for more opportunities to develop, both as a player and a person, as they are facing a real uphill battle in the Premier League.

13.) 07 Mar 2018 15:23:05
I wonder if he could be used has part of a deal to sign Sessegnon?

14.) 07 Mar 2018 15:40:58
So Dub, he's said he wants to move to Germany to help his progress, and you suggest sending him to Fulham, in England?!

15.) 07 Mar 2018 15:47:38
Dub Jim-He wants to go to Germany not Fulham.

16.) 07 Mar 2018 16:26:27
No TIA im suggesting that if were gona lose a 17 year old whos done nothing in senior football, then we try and use him to get something we do want and someone who does want to play for us. Granted its very unlikely but all im saying is could be worth a try!

17.) 07 Mar 2018 18:51:58
Too early to tell with him.
We poached him from Chelsea.
If he goes, he goes.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 08:44:41
Exactly Ron, Solanke won the u-21's world cup and the best player in it and looks not completely ready, let alone ready to lead the line, this kid wins the u-17 world cup and thinks he should start games? its a bit ridiculous. I guarantee he will barley get a kick for the first team at Dortmund as well. That Man City kid, Sancho moved there for the same reasons and he is a much bigger talent than Brewester, i think he has played 1.5 games all season! As i said goodbye and good luck, he will need the luck part real bad!

19.) 08 Mar 2018 11:23:58
is there a max to the number of years you can loan a player? obviously not longer than his contract, but say he has 4 years left, can we loan him out for 3 years to the same club?

{Ed002's Note - You can give a loan which is renewable if everyone agrees. Else two years.}

20.) 08 Mar 2018 16:05:16
Nostradamus-Sancho has featured more times for Dortmund in the bundesliga then he would have for City in the premiership I can almost guarantee.
He’s featured in 6 games and started some and would have played more without injury.



11 Jul 2017 15:56:06
Ojo to Boro, I think it's a better move for him than Newcastle. A move to a premier league club would have been ideal however I don't see him getting regular games at any premier league club.


1.) 11 Jul 2017 16:19:44
Yh but if he wants to play for liverpool he needs to prove himself at the highest level.

2.) 11 Jul 2017 18:17:09
Please no. if he goes to boro he'll likely not play for us again.

3.) 11 Jul 2017 18:42:31
i don't see the big deal, if he's good enough he'll make it, if he's not he won't. Hardly rocket science!

4.) 11 Jul 2017 18:42:31
i don't see the big deal, if he's good enough he'll make it, if he's not he won't. Hardly rocket science!

5.) 11 Jul 2017 19:13:36
Good for him, but gutted in a way, wish we could've seen him play for us more this season but again, it's a good move for him to give him regular football.

6.) 11 Jul 2017 20:01:39
Unless there has been a change at Boro, we couldn't have sent him to a team that is more opposite to how we play. hope it goes well for him.

7.) 11 Jul 2017 21:25:49
Things have changed they have a new manager and from what I've seen monk wants his team's to play good football he's not just a long ball merchant.

8.) 11 Jul 2017 21:40:23
Monk does want them to attack, I fancy Ojo to get plenty of game time.

9.) 11 Jul 2017 21:56:05
Yeah I reckon he'd be a starter the majority of the season Hansens, he can be vital for them I'm sure, should he stay fit.

10.) 11 Jul 2017 22:05:20
Flanno should go as well to a club luke boro or Villa.,

A season playing regular football in the championship would build up his resistance better tha warming a bench at Anfield or Burnley.

Its make or break for the lad this season.

11.) 11 Jul 2017 23:26:46
Boro are a good team for giving promising youngsters s chance. My mate is callum chambers uncle. He said he liked it ar biro but want to go back to arsenal. Wenger really likes him and wants to keep hold of him but he wants regular matches. Is he good enough for us? Mani killed him last year. Arsenal Ard signing lacazette! Why couldn't we get him? Too slow. Come on liverpool, put your money where your mouth is. Time to spend that 200 mkl we were promised. Coul get kieta and vvd, Robertson and still have 50/ 60 mil for z striker. We are not going to win the league without a top goal scorer. No one has ever won the prem without a 25+ man. Arsenal also fancy vvd. They have a very slick transfer team and could charm him. We need to move this week and offer 70 mil for both players. So what, we want to win don't we? We were unbelievable last season. Best football in the league. If we had someone like lacazette I reckon we would be really dangerous against any team in the world.

12.) 12 Jul 2017 01:56:42
Will be a baptism of fire for him. Championship is rough, decent level of football. I have a feeling that ojo could light up our front line. Been saying we need a goal scorer, 25+. He could be that man. Been ages since we had a kid who made defenders gulp.

13.) 12 Jul 2017 04:21:08
Just to add. Salah, firmino and mane are as dangerous as they come. That is some front line. With capable fbs and creative midfielder (coutinio ) I can see mane getting 20+ if he doesn't get injured.

14.) 12 Jul 2017 05:28:06
I know it sounds rash bur we need to get our skates on. We want new players to settle a little before new season. And others are trying to sign them. Just pay the asking price, we are going to have some team, if we get these two. Thought kieta was pie in the sky but looks like he's coming.

15.) 12 Jul 2017 06:30:42
Ojo has already proved himself in the championship with 2 other clubs.
I'm afraid I agree, this loan is not a good sign for Ojo at LFC.

{Ed001's Note - that is the problem, he has not proved himself. He was on the fringes both loan spells as he is simply not ready yet.}

16.) 12 Jul 2017 09:00:51
Should he stay fit this season and do well, he MUST be given a chance with our first team next season or I fear we'll lose him, I have everything crossed for this lad. Watched him for along time now and he really excites me for the future.

17.) 12 Jul 2017 09:24:02
So many fans (of other clubs too, I'm sure) MASSIVELY overreact where young players are concerned. Ojo isn't either ready or good enough to make our bench most weeks, so loaning him makes total sense. 2ndly not every young player is like Rooney or Alli and ready to be top class Prem players in their teens. 3rdly loads of highly promising youngsters don't make it at big clubs we just hear about them less because we're less interested in other teams young players. A loan will be good for Ojo as he'll either prove he's becoming the player we hope, or he'll do well enough to earn himself a transfer and us some money.

18.) 12 Jul 2017 09:43:04
Fabcrusoe - I have a feeling one day you will eat your words, your saying 'Ojo isn't either ready or good enough to make our bench most weeks' Ed1 said he isn't ready, which I will believe because it's coming from him. I have a feeling you are just taking people's words for it and haven't even seen him play, he has talent, he can be the full package with a bit more experience.

If it wasn't for his back injury last season I feel he'd be going nowhere on loan and we would be slowly putting him into the first team with cup games to start off with. But to me, as ed1 has stated, he isn't ready and I feel this is the reason behind him not been ready.

Unfortunately his injury set him back, not his fault is it? it's just unfortunate. Onwards and upwards for that lad I think.

I agree a lot of fans do overreact over some youngsters, but Ojo is at another level, I'm not saying he's going to be world class or anything because nobody knows right now, but at least a good player he will be, providing luck goes his way for once.

Ed1, your a busy guy I appreciate that but would love for you to do an article on Ojo, your opinions and excellent knowledge of players/ staff is second to none. If you could add this to your big list mate I think it'd make a great read.

19.) 12 Jul 2017 10:58:34
I have a feeling he will struggle to break into the boro side but we will see, I hope he does well.

20.) 12 Jul 2017 11:06:50
Yes going on loan can be great but if he goes on loan to the championship next year he will have the exact same questions hanging over him of is he ready for the premier league. He will be another year older and us fans will likely be calling for another winger to be signed by then. Woodburn will probably stay and move further ahead of him in the pecking order too.

21.) 12 Jul 2017 11:41:34
Personally think a loan with Newcastle is better. A year under Rafa might change his game. I rate him but in the games I have watched he seems a bit loose with the ball. Has the attributes to succeed though for sure.

22.) 12 Jul 2017 11:48:01
He will get games somewhere down the line in the championship, simply down to the sheer number of matches they play across various competitions.
Its a bit rougher too, will toughen him up and teach him to be smarter on the ball. Precisely what Leicester did with Mahrez, but they did it internally.
What one of the previous posters said is bang on, he will either show Liverpool enough to get some games for us next season or will prove he has the ability to help another club and get transferred.

Good luck to him, I love a direct, forward thinking player.

23.) 12 Jul 2017 15:45:23
12 thumbs down for saying we need a top striker? And for saying we won't win league without a 20+ man. We'll no one has EVER Won the prem without a 20+ man. I also concede that mani should have got over twenty last season if not for injury and African cup and could be that man. I hope he is. I still feel we need another striker and if we keep making low offers for players then the big spenders are going to swoop in and sign em from under our noses. Kieta is already talking about city. Mbappe is meeting with arsenal. Both Could be at melwood already.

24.) 14 Jul 2017 02:15:36
Superred, mate, while I admit you're getting unfairly thumbed down (I assume you've REALLY gotten on the nerves of a bunch of people and they're getting personal), that last comment is complete garbage.

Some seasons of the Prem didn't even have 20+ goal scorers, and they definitely don't rule a team out of winning if they don't have one.

Maybe think before you post and do some damage control on that rep of yours.

FSG have performed a u-turn on the furloughing, glad they have but it still leaves a sour taste.


{Ed025's Note - it does cobra, but at least they have listened to the people mate..

Yeah, they’ve made a mistake and they have in the past but they’ve shown again they listen to the fans.

Clubs furloughing staff should get a transfer ban if they're that tight up financially.

Wayne rooney says footballers are scape goats and they shouldn't have to take a paycut and why them well mr rooney when lower paid staff and normal workers are getting a 20% pay cut and scraping by in some cases living hand to mouth with the same employer as someone on full pay in excess of 100k a week that is why footballers are being called out as well should the owners . these people will take 4 years maybe more to earn 100k. be grateful for what you have most premier league players will earn more in one year than I will in my life time sorry for the rant I'm just heavily disgusted in the situation.

{Ed025's Note - and im with you berg, why anyone would listen to anything that pot herb rooney has to say is beyond me mate..

LFC messed up here big time. On both a moral and PR level, this is a complete disaster that will not be going away anytime soon.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately your right mate..

I totally get where you’re coming from, Berg, I think we all do.
It does seem, however, that footballers are being relentlessly targeted by the media and such, more so than a lot of other professionals, almost in a way that says because they entertain for a living rather than study for licensing and accreditation, their wealth is unearned so now it is time to give it up.
I am one of the few that is against footballers pay being cut for now, as that takes the burden and some operational risk away from the owners who benefit most when their organizations are doing well. It is for this reason why Liverpool’s actions were so disappointing - ‘Support us when we need you, but don’t expect anything back when you are in your time of need’.
I am in no way saying that footballers can’t do more to give back to their communities, I sincerely hope as many as possible step up and recognize just how fortunate they are, but this problem is about the behaviour of organizations, rather than individual players.

Keita out for 2 months. shame the lads going to miss a champions league final!


1.) 03 May 2019 11:14:44
He'll be able to watch Barcelona on the telly!

2.) 03 May 2019 12:26:31
Lol love it cobra. But yes, indeed a shame.

The stadium probably has disabled access, if he’s on crutches or whatever. He’ll probably be able to afford a corporate box as well.

4.) 03 May 2019 13:28:23
I wonder will he walk up to collect his winners medal in full strip and boots?

5.) 03 May 2019 13:37:43
CL semi final 1st legs and our midfielders don’t go together very well.

6.) 03 May 2019 18:24:59
Pretty sure Keita can make it to the PL title celebrations on the Anfield pitch come next Sat.

Pulisic to Chelsea has been confirmed, staying at Dortmund for the rest of this season to join next season (replacement for Hazard? )
I think he's a really good signing for them I just worry if he comes in as a direct replacement for Hazard it could put a lot more pressure and expectation on him.


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Hazard, they play in different positions. He is a replacement for someone else. So no need for you to worry.}

1.) 02 Jan 2019 10:30:26
Thanks for clarifying.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 13:39:57
Hazard is off to Madrid in the summer trust me.

Minamino looks pretty pacey to me and although he’s not done anything so far in a Liverpool shirt his chances have been minimal. You also have to factor in that he is coming to a new country and Klopps track record with slowly integrating players into the team and I’m personally not going to write him off just yet.

People are going on like at 29 (just turned too) he’s over the hill. He’s the same age as VVD (29 soon) and seems to be in the peak of his career.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t think we need him, and probably can’t afford him but if I was City I would be making serious moves for him and think he transforms them.

They are topping up the wages and that has been announced, the whole situation smells a bit and in the grand scheme of things 500k a month is peanuts especially when you consider we pay 12 players over £100k a week.

He’s shown glimpses and due to injury and the form of others hasn’t really been given an extended run to show what he can do. What he’s shown in training and as a professional off the pitch is another question.

Leipzig would be a good move, replace Werner.


{Ed002's Note - Interestingly RBL has no declared interest but a discussion has been held with them about Haaland.}
