Hey Ed’s, just a quick one. Do you see Harry Wilson in Liverpool’s long term plans? Has he done enough on loan to be given a chance this upcoming season with us? Or are we actively looking for a sale or loan? Thanks for all the good work guys.

{Ed001's Note - this has been said a hundred times already mate, he is for sale. He doesn't work hard enough off the ball.}

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Jul 2019 07:32:16
Thanks Ed001, didn’t see the question before mate, sorry for asking again. Do you still see us going in for an attacking player that can play a versatile attacking role? Thanks for your time Ed.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, still looking.}

11 Jul 2019 08:21:55
Yeah and you can't really teach that if he doesn't have it in his gut.

Btw I watched Cornet in Lyon vs Man City last night and oh yes I'll have me some of that.

11 Jul 2019 09:43:43
with the club pricing him out of a move at the moment for an outright sale, do you think we may see him heading out on loan again?

11 Jul 2019 10:03:18
Why do we always put such a high value that no one is willing to pay on players like Wilson?

Surely the price can be dropped with some sort of clause in the contract that if said team sells him on we get a cut?

11 Jul 2019 10:33:33
Hi ED01,
You have mentioned that klopp by poeple inside LFC to give him a chance? So it's klopp's and coaching stuff decision to put him up for sale?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

11 Jul 2019 11:48:28
Eds1 when you say still looking for an versatile attacking midfield. are we actually still scouting or we know our top 5 targets and it’s a case of brokering a deal with one of them.

{Ed001's Note - scouting will always go on, even when a list of choices has been made.}

11 Jul 2019 12:01:09
Have you any insight into how Wilson’s attitude is with improving to be a LFC player? Is he keen to work within Klopps way and work harder off the ball or is he another quality kid turned brat that thinks he’s made it already so doesn’t have to?

I was hoping he’d get a chance and grab it. Getting a bit tired of hearing about these great players in our youth teams that seem to be the answer then actually aren’t even close. Ibe, Kent, Ojo now possibly Wilson.

I completely understand why there’s such a split with fans either wanting to splash cash or give youth their chance.

{Ed001's Note - he had a few issues when he was younger after getting loads of hype. While he knuckled down a bit to a degree, it is unlikely he will ever be suited to Klopp's way of playing.}

11 Jul 2019 12:02:51
JT the club has done well selling players for the price they believe is right. Look at players like Solanke. It was reported that we got 19 mil for him. If that was the case 25 mil for Wilson isn't overpriced.

11 Jul 2019 12:21:34
Still looking Ed001, anyone new you are aware of mate or nothing outside of the usual few mentioned on here?

{Ed001's Note - no mate nothing new.}

11 Jul 2019 15:38:25
@JT

I don't think that we do overprice our players.

Solanke, Ibe, Ings, Ward etc have all been sold for considerable sums which represent much better business than years gone by where we would be making considerable losses on sales.

Well done Liverpool transfer team!

11 Jul 2019 16:14:37
Wilson is a very talented young footballer he just is unlikely to suit Liverpool high intensity style of play. Wonder how he compared to the likes of Milner and Lallana in the pre season runs.
He will suit other teams tho and do very well for them even if he doesn't adjust his style of play/ effort off the ball.
So just because he likely won't make at Liverpool doesn't mean he isn't worth a good price. suso may be a sort of example of having success playing a different style of footbaal.

11 Jul 2019 22:27:30
Sorry to push the question but is it possible Lampard told him not to track back as his talents lay further forward, or were Derby frustrated with his efforts defensively?

{Ed001's Note - Derby played a different type of game, your question left out other possible answers.}

12 Jul 2019 04:48:51
Work ethic off the ball can be encouraged and its value can be taught. Willfully choosing not to do it is a different problem altogether. Attitude is as important as talent. If this truly is the sole problem for Wilson, it's time to move on.

12 Jul 2019 19:26:31
I know it was only a preseason game against Tranmere, but Wilson was not the highlight feature. Kent looked just as good if not better when they were on the pitch together. Ryan Kent didn't half put a shift in.

12 Jul 2019 20:30:17
Wilson did put a shift in last season at Derby. Sometimes the penny does drop. I hope he uses pre season to work his way into Klopp’s plans as there is a very good footballer there that just needs coaxing out.

13 Jul 2019 05:38:10
I don't think it's necessarily as simple to just say he doesn't have the work rate. It's just his overall style doesn't fit well for us, lack of pace and aggression on and off the ball, he not suited to a high tempo running team. A very good player with hopefully a bright future but he needs the right team to suit his play.

The likes of riquelme, deco, sneijder, all star players in the right side but would never suit us under klopp due to playing style.

13 Jul 2019 12:31:14
Suppose changing of managers for the first team really affects the players in the youth system as playing styles vary so much does the managers style filter through the youth teams or are they managed independently of the senior team?

09 Jul 2019 19:36:59
Sardar Azmoun being linked again. Don't think there's been any news since last year. Any idea if he's of interest or just more 'Iranian Messi' clickbait or an agent trying to get his name out there.

Agree3 Disagree3

10 Jul 2019 07:27:08
I also doubt there is anything to this rumour. Seems pretty random.

10 Jul 2019 22:53:05
Signing a striker seems pointless at this point. Signing Origi to a extension and with the intent to give Brewster a shot, would just knock someone down the pecking order.

11 Jul 2019 00:52:52
I know little of the lad, was just checking with the eds if there's any validity In the rumours.
Having said that, firmino, origi and a clearly talented but completely untested Brewster doesn't exactly leave us overflowing with options. Origi will be used to rotate all 3 of or front 3 and Brewster maybe likewise, who knows he's not played for the 1st team exactly.

12 Jul 2019 19:27:49
That's a fair point regarding rotation, but your solution is. the Iranian Messi?

09 Jul 2019 12:22:32
Just passing on info from last week. I took a Liverpool legend to Anfield last week for the pink concert. He said it was more just to meet the new chief exec. I pushed on transfers and he said Liverpool are in talks with Bournemouth over Callum Wilson with clyne being sent the other way. Ironically, I had to take clyne to lime st the following day and asked him and he said he hadn't heard anything but he was getting a train down south with his friend. Have you heard anything eds?

Agree6 Disagree19

09 Jul 2019 13:43:13
Didnt they value Wilson at over 50 million for chelsea? Seems mad money for his age and quality.

09 Jul 2019 14:19:37
Werent they looking for something like 50m+? Id walk away at a quarter of that. Plus I reckon Ryan Fraser is a far better bet and would cost less given that hes in the last year of his contract.

09 Jul 2019 15:31:03
Living in Bournemouth and having seen both play I would plump for Fraser, he has incredible speed which upsets defences. David Brookes would be another one to look at from the Cherries. Wilson is a good player but not at the price being quoted.

10 Jul 2019 09:47:47
Why the heck would we sign Wilson or any striker? We have three plus wide-forwards who can play there. Absolutely no need for Wilson nor is he good enough.

Fraser and Brooks are decent players but not at the required standard for Liverpool.

10 Jul 2019 10:53:12
Signing a new deal at Bournemouth, put that 1 too bed .

10 Jul 2019 18:52:51
"Fraser and Brooks are decent players but not the standard required at Liverpool". The arrogance is astounding I'll bet you said the same about that left back signed from Hull 2 years back.

09 Jul 2019 10:37:37
Interesting that Lewis wasnt part of the selection for the training sessions of late, do the Eds know if he will be loaned out for the season to gain some competitive experience? Cheers for the work as always.

{Ed001's Note - that is the idea.}

Agree4 Disagree1

09 Jul 2019 12:25:27
have any clubs shown any interest?

10 Jul 2019 09:49:10
He has now joined up with the senior squad along with 8 other academy players. Really looking forward to seeing some of them in action.

08 Jul 2019 10:17:06
Harvey Elliott, the youngest player ever to feature in the Premier League, is to join Liverpool this summer. [Telegraph].

Agree21 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 11:12:28
Clyde kindly mentioned this a few days ago.

From what he says he is a Liverpool fan and is very excited to get started!

08 Jul 2019 13:34:49
Looks a cracking little player needs a few bowls of scouse an some klopp magic dust sprinkled on him, might have another little gem .

08 Jul 2019 17:54:10
Klopp won't be Liverpool manager by the time he's ready for first team football, bags of potential but still only a kid.

08 Jul 2019 18:01:42
I am worried, who will be manager?

08 Jul 2019 19:54:14
Big sam.

08 Jul 2019 21:41:38
Samuel Tarly?

09 Jul 2019 03:00:55
From the house Tarly? Nope. Rather will have Tyrion/ Sansa.

09 Jul 2019 12:19:27
We signed Ki-Jana Hoever at 16 and he's already featured under Klopp, albeit just one game as sub. What makes you think that Elliott wouldn't? If he's good enough, he'll get the odd cameo.

08 Jul 2019 08:53:21
Can any of the eds confirm whether we have a deal in place to sign harvey elliot from fulham.

{Ed002's Note - I know there has been a lot of interest in the kiddie and I know that one of the interested sides is Liverpool. Whether or not there has been agreement over the compensation I don't know - this is obviously nothing to do with the first team - it is an academy matter.}

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 10:40:10
He has now officially been signed by LFC.

08 Jul 2019 23:13:45
So official that it's not mentioned on the official website.

07 Jul 2019 01:32:13
ED002,

Dani Ceballos continues to be linked with Liverpool this market. I recall a previous Macca mention, which he thought he was going to Liverpool last year. Is this just old recycled news from the media or do you see valid interest in the player?
The articles are saying Klopp and Pochettino both rate him.

Much appreciated.

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have shown an interest before, particularly looking to taking him on loan but nothing came of it. He is still not wanted at Real Madrid and is being offered around now, and I would expect Liverpool may be one of the clubs to be approached. Certainly there has already been a discussion with Spurs and West Ham enquired after a loan with an option to buy. The issue is where would he fit in a packed Liverpool midfield? Are Liverpool looking for a Keita replacement? Certainly there are discussions going on right now that could see him and Eriksen switch clubs as Madrid are trying to shut down a couple of deals with English sides in the coming days.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Jul 2019 03:35:33
Ceballos makes zero sense to me. He plays in a position where we are literally stacked with 6 senior players vying for 3 spots. He would have an even bigger headache getting into our midfield than Real's. Makes sense for him to got to Spurs as a replacement for Wanyama or Eriksen (depending on Poch's plans for him) .

07 Jul 2019 02:02:05
thanks heaps I'm always so impressed with your knowledge.

have great weekend!

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

07 Jul 2019 11:49:48
Are any of those deals Real are looking to shut down with English aides happen to be with Liverpool Ed2?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

07 Jul 2019 12:10:39
Thanks Ed much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

08 Jul 2019 13:17:59
Keita struggled at times last season, Injuries didn't help and he's not really had a run of games does anyone know when he's fit, and if he's in the pre season set up?

06 Jul 2019 16:16:34
I hate rumours like this but in a betting group I am in, a usually reliable poster shared some info (with a view to bet on it) that Dembele has traveled up to Liverpool today and is with Liverpool officials right now. The odds (irrelevant but interesting) have dropped substantially in the last few hours so it's either legit or a staged wind up that's spreading through betting groups so that punters jump on.

Do we have any info on this at all? As nobody has left for him to replace I'm dismissing until I hear from yourselves.

Agree17 Disagree8

06 Jul 2019 16:44:43
Yeah dismiss it mate if I were you. No interest, would cost towards 100M also.

06 Jul 2019 16:53:39
Its happening on loan apparently. I don't know why barcelona would ever do that.
They will have to sell dembele and coutinho and others to get in griezmann and neymar.

06 Jul 2019 16:59:59
Not you as well akrubbish. Its nonsense!

06 Jul 2019 17:06:46
Controversial and winds people up but Im still not sure that Salah doesnt leave this window if the Merry Go Round starts up. Id prefer Pepe if he did but a loan to buy deal for Dembele could make sense if the worry is his previous injuries. Like you say, it doesnt help Barcelona with funding their main targets. Im dismissing it but I do love a rumour that drops the odds market as Im a sports trader myself and can take advantage of rumours like this even if they are false.

06 Jul 2019 17:35:37
You imagine the club will be watching Salah closely, and potential replacements, in case he gets the offer he clearly wants from Real or wherever.
It doesn't look likely at the moment, but while it's even possible the management will have a plan ready, just in case.

I would rather they make that move now and bed the new forward in over this season, but it's such a huge investment that maybe they can't really make their move until they know Salah has made the decision to leave?

06 Jul 2019 18:17:15
I would n't worry about it (I am guessing most don't want Dembele in) . I would imagine he will be part of any Naymar deal that may happen.

06 Jul 2019 19:38:01
Never going to happen. Plus hed be late getting the flight to John Lennon airport as he was too busy on his Xbox.

06 Jul 2019 19:57:27
On the possibility of Dembele specifically, surely it's unlikely the club will be interested?
Klopp seems to prefer more solid and hardworking personalities, and every indication is that Dembele is a complete tool.
Maybe Klopp doesn't mind a project and the challenge of turning a brilliant but wayward young player around, but the rest of the recruitment team will surely be dead set against a player with such a poor reputation, and at such a high cost?
I don't think this club will touch him at 100m plus.

06 Jul 2019 20:20:55
If he's going to be part of the deal to bring Neymar back, PSG are jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

06 Jul 2019 20:38:24
Does anyone think that we could get dembele? I think if he was travelling to Liverpool we would all know about it. Is Liverpools deals not sorted in London?

06 Jul 2019 20:47:54
I'm not saying it will happen but would anyone take a loan to buy? Season to bed in to klopps tactics and then when Salah leaves next summer (probable but not definite) we can conclude the dembele deal (if klopp thinks he's good enough/ has the right attitude.

Again, I know unlikely, but am interested to see peoples views.

{Ed002's Note - It is not an option at all. Dembele is not in Liverpool.}

06 Jul 2019 21:55:01
Thanks Ed. Good job I didn't have a bet then, ill lay him off to all the people who believe it .

06 Jul 2019 23:24:27
Usually, I agree about bookies and odds regarding football are biased in the bookies favour, obviously, you never see a skint bookie, but interesting non the less as sky have taken him completely off their transfer special section, and he's been on their for weeks. Hmmm.

07 Jul 2019 03:56:43
Ps don't shoot the messenger but the same window cleaner does klopps house and he swears blind that klopps Screensaver is of Danny wellbeck make of it as you will just passing on the knowledge I just checked the odds at the bookies and he's come in from 100 to 1 to 98 to 1 so it's looking pretty nailed on.

07 Jul 2019 11:30:05
I saw my missus talking to the window cleaner last week and now bookies have reduced the odds of her having an affair from 20-1 down to 7-2 I don't know whether I should sack him as our window cleaner or to sneak a 30 bet on.

07 Jul 2019 15:16:07
Giblet, I am your window cleaner . Its over . respect to you, how do you cope, another hour and I would 've gone mad.

07 Jul 2019 20:59:30
Salah is not leaving next summer . who wants to leave the premier and european champions.

06 Jul 2019 00:43:50
I have known Harvey Elliott all his life and there is a strong Possibility that he will sign by next week. let me just say he is a mad Liverpool fan who has been going to Anfield since he was about five, he is extremely well mannered and very humble. all I would ask is for people on here and other social media sites to give him time, remember he is only sixteen and not criticize (would personally love to have a man bun) . all in all hope wherever his career takes him it's long and successful and obviously that can be with Lfc thanks y. n. w. a.

Agree38 Disagree5

06 Jul 2019 06:38:04
Agree Clyde think hell get the time if he needs too. Think Harvey would do great under Klopp and his team if hes willing to put the work in. Great time for a talented youngster to be joining his boy hood team imo.

06 Jul 2019 08:47:59
He has 12 months to prove himself!
Just kidding. It sounds like a life long dream to play for Liverpool so all the best to the lad.

06 Jul 2019 09:21:11
Thanks for passing on the info! Welcome to LFC!

He clearly is a very talented individual just needs to keep his head down, listen to the coaches, work damn hard and he will go far!

06 Jul 2019 09:42:03
Thanks Clyde. Great insight!

06 Jul 2019 12:24:21
cheers Clyde.

06 Jul 2019 14:43:34
Great post mate.

06 Jul 2019 15:28:26
Good post Clyde. I hope he signs. Have a great day all.

06 Jul 2019 16:37:22
Having known him all his life, it makes me wonder if you and Bonnie are his parents?

05 Jul 2019 21:29:31
Hi eds. Have we signed Harvey Elliott from Fulham?

{Ed001's Note - not as of yet we haven't. No idea if we will or not, he is just a kid and it is very difficult to keep track of kids.}

Agree2 Disagree2

05 Jul 2019 22:02:10
Cheers mate.

06 Jul 2019 09:38:24
Ed002s transfer information is great and we thank him for it.
Got to say though, if we just end up with Mexwell Cornet as the main Summer signing, I will feel disappointed with that outcome.
