Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?

1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.

3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32

4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.

5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.

6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.



06 Jul 2015 15:52:35
Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.

2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.

3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market

4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.

5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got

6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.

7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke

8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.

9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.

10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!

11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}



14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}

1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}

2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!

3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.

4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.

5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}

6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.

7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.

8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

Great window for us. So now all heads turn to who will leave. I see the following:
Migs, Randall, Grujic, Chirivella, Ojo, Markovich and Origi. Perhaps Solanke on loan.

Personally, and many might disagree, but I would still love to see Grujic staying and getting some games. I know he won't start many and the cover for the first team midfielders will likely be Wini and Milner, but I really do think this kid has talent and I feel we could be be doing a KDB, Matic, Pogba equivalent by not playing him and losing him at some point.

1.) 09 Aug 2018 23:55:01
I agree West wood.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 06:11:41
Grujic is nowhere near their level IMO.

Ed1 said he’s never knuckled down and shown a self entitlement to play without effort on the training ground. Cardiff has the same frustration with him too.

Talent but a really poor attitude by all accounts and he’s achieved nothing in his career at a good level to begin to justify that attitude.

We made a huge mistake saying he’d get game time to pass his work permit and that part is on us.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he is even that good. Get rid.}

3.) 10 Aug 2018 06:11:53
I think Grujic is probably there technically, but may not have the mentality to be a top draw player in the long run. Comes across as somewhat lazy at times and also has a hot head.
I hope many of the lads you mentioned get a loan or permanent move, for their sake and ours. If we can get another 30M+ from Mignolet, Origi, Chirivella - Mr. Edwards will be my new god!

4.) 10 Aug 2018 07:19:44
Don’t know why we didn’t let him go to Cardiff.



07 Aug 2018 23:13:35
Hey ed001. How do you think pre-season has gone? Any players in particular stood out to you or made a case to start/ be in and around the squad when maybe we thought they wouldn't be?

For me, Sturridge is looking good. Yes the pace is gone, and he's always scored goals when fit, but he actually looks very sharp at the minute and a part of the team and I think has played his way back ahead of Solanke. Any thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - I haven't been watching pre-season as it is meaningless. It is only about getting players fit and firing ahead of a new season.}

1.) 08 Aug 2018 07:07:05
Hi ed1,

I thought it a bit strange that at no point this pre-season has anyone got more than 60 mins under their belt. I would of thought the first 11 would need close to a full 90 before the season starts. Or does it bear no relevance?

{Ed001's Note - bears no real relevance, they should be doing all their fitness work in training.}

2.) 08 Aug 2018 07:20:03
Ok cool, thanks Ed.

I think Klopp has been working the sh@t out of them during training and they’ve looked leggy in some of the friendlies as a result.

Buzzing for the weekend! The wife and I go on holiday and she’s a hammer so Day 1 could well set the tone for the holiday 😅.

{Ed001's Note - that could be a fun holiday....}



23 Jun 2018 10:09:08
Hey eds. usual rumours everywhere about Allison and Fekir. However I'm more interested in cover/ competition for Salah and & Mane. Moses Simon has been linked quite strongly with us previously. Do we have any serious interest or do you think it's more likely that Ojo, Kent and Wilson may be given a chance? Do you have any thoughts on Simon as a player and a preferance on cover for those positions? Only ask as I think we were quite lucky keeping them both fit after Phil left and we look much better when both are playing than when one is out.

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained previously about Moses Simon. Obviously Shaqiri is the one being asked about now, but that makes little sense to me. Kent will likely get a loan, perhaps Wilson as well. Ojo has no future at Liverpool and will get a loan or perhaps even be sold.}

1.) 23 Jun 2018 13:46:09
Will look back through posts on Moses Simon as iv missed that. A shame that the young lads likely won’t progress with us as I think there’s some quality there. Thanks 02 have a good weekend.



06 Jun 2018 18:46:02
With all this talk of a potential new keeper, I genuinely hope that we take a look at Leno from Leverkusen. Admittedly I haven't seen much of him but he seems to have a good rep and is highly thought of. Anyone got a better idea of what he's like?

{Ed002's Note - Leno is heading elsewhere.}

1.) 06 Jun 2018 18:49:11
Oh well. Cheers for the heads up Ed002.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 20:36:17
Rubbish in the air, unsuitable to the premier league 🤝.



27 May 2018 06:40:45
After a kip and getting over the initial disappointment, I just want to say how proud I am of our team. We'v played some fantastic football this year, good enough for us to come into the final with some genuine belief when, much like in 2005, none of us would have predicted it. Considering the squad depth we currently have, I think the lads have done themselves and the shirt proud. We can build from this and come back even stronger next year with the right acquisitions and I genuinely believe we will be back here again sooner than many might think.

I would be more worried if he doesn’t sign an extension next summer rather than worry about it right now. Pure speculation, but I would imagine any recently offered contract was probably not as lucrative advance say Salahs after his brilliant seasons and Mane wants the same. Hence a stalemate and Mane being challenged by the club to match Salahs feats to get a similar contract. A long shot but seems feasible in my head anyway. Mane is not short on confidence and I personally consider him to be a superior player to Salah.

A creative mid should be the priority over any other position.

Even if they did want him, (which iv seen nothing of nor would I blame them! ) I’m pretty sure he has 2 years left on his contract come the end of this season. So it won’t be a cut price job by any means. I like Mane what I like about LFC at the min is that the system is the most important component. Players can be replaced.

Agree with MK. For me the most complete striker I have seen in the PL era is Drogba. He had the lot and proved people wrong after a slow start with Chelsea. Movement, pace, power, two footed, good in the air, was quick and could hold the ball up. I hated that Chelsea bought him the summer after he bullied the LFC in europe when he was still playing for that french team, was it Marseilles? I can't remember.

Depends on what is meant by best! The best natural LB iv seen in my lifetime at LFC is Aurelio. That fella had real talent and was good in defence as well. However the most 'effective' in terms of keeping conceded goals down for me was when Carragher was playing left back when we had Henchoz and Hyypia in the middle and before Rafa moved him into the centre. We havnt had many good LB's in the last 20 years!

Defo keep him for as long as he is happy to be here. He’s one of our better midfielders currently and the only one that passes and moves into attacking spaces, well bar Lallana but unfortunately I think he’s probably out of the team now.

I think priorities should be a permanent RB to allow Gomez a permanent CB role and Trent a chance to prove his worth in the centre. Secondly a creative attacking midfielder, this could happen by allowing Shaqiri the role, or promoting Wilson upon his return. Hendo, Milner and Gini and Fab all have ability and work ethic but are not quite that David Silva/ Coutinho I think the team is currently missing. A back up for Robinson as Moreno clearly isn’t it. Maybe young Lewis. Hope to see Brewster play some games when he’s fit rather than Origi or Solanke also. l and Studge as great as he’s been recently is getting no younger.

Wouldn’t mind seeing Shaquiri start to be honest. Salah isn’t exactly in form and if he’s struggling even slightly then don’t risk it. That’s what we got Shaq for.
