just read Pedro Chirivella is been offered new 5 years deal, i would love to see him extend his deal with us as he is home grown and you mentioned already we lacking severely in that department, how come this change of heart from liverpool, in your previous posts edd you did mention he will be leaving for free, what's your fresh perspective about it edd is he going to sign or not and should he extend or not.

Thanks.

I thought he agreed to sign with someone else?

18 May 2020 10:09:31
The lad is 22. He needs to be getting regular games for the sake of his career rather than wasting his time trying to get games for us. Time for him to move on I think. Good player from the little I've seen but I'd hate for him to miss an opportunity to get weekly game time elsewhere.

{Ed002's Note - You are right. I do not know anything of such an offer from Liverpool but he would simply be taking up a squad place if he stayed - or worse be consigned to the reserves with no chance of first team football. In answer to the original question, Curtis Jones seems to be ahead of him in the pecking order and, subject to paperwork etc., Nantes are confident he will make the move he has verbally agreed.}

18 May 2020 11:41:21
Pedro Chirivella has done enough to get game time elsewhere, good luck to the lad and hope you do well.

18 May 2020 19:04:10
Unfortunately, I think the club are only offering him a 5 year contract with a view to protect their asset.

They'd give him 6-7 games next season, then look to sell him to the highest bidder.

Best thing for the lad to do would be to leave on a free. I wish him all the best and I think he'll have a good career as I rate him highly.

19 May 2020 05:12:58
ed2 - do you have an examples in football that are equivalent to a form of sign and trade that is used in american sports? That way ensuring the 'selling' club get something back for the player.

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the question but Liverpool and Valencia get a small amount paid for his being trained by the clubs.}

17 May 2020 09:58:17
Hey Ed2, read Liverpool are interested in Talles Magno, 17 year old Brazilian I had never heard of. Any real interest or just click bait? Being that age I'm sure getting a work permit would be quite difficult.

{Ed002's Note - Talles Magno (S/W) Vasco de Gama kiddie who has been subject to discussions with Lyon's Sporting Director Juninho and Real Madrid who want him to join and pair up with Reinier Jesus and Rodrygo to ease the transition. Lazio and Roma enquired after a price and were quoted €65M but it went no further than that and realistically it would need to be less than half that. Benfica, Manchester City, Braga, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Bayern Munich were impressed with him enough at the U17 World Cup to continue to watch him at club level. I would suggest the chances of him moving to Europe would be influenced by compatriots at Real Madrid or the lure of Juninho at OL. Benfica have offered the best opportunity to get through in to the first team. I cannot assess the chances of a move to any of the other sides.}

Thanks ed.

{Ed002's Note - I would note that players cannot move from Brazil until they are 18.}

17 May 2020 11:01:14
Aren't Vasco de Gama really struggling financially, Ed002? I read a couple of days ago that this could make them accept a much lower offer, but I guess if there's plenty of interest, they may not need to.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Brazilian sides are struggling and as I said in the reply, realistically the price will be considerably lower than they have been asking.}

17 May 2020 18:35:54
Would we ever consider signing young Brazilians given the work permit issues?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool don't want another Allan situation obviously, so they need to be careful. The issue of being Home Grown becomes an issue at 21 in England as well - and Liverpool need to start managing that better - particularly as efforts will be made again to change the ratio.}

18 May 2020 15:00:48
Thanks for the info Ed, really interesting. I can see what you're saying with regards to Allan, however would this issue not be eased by the prospective transfer fee? Also would our strong Brazilian contingent (albeit significantly older) make Liverpool an attractive destination?

{Ed002's Note - He is a child who would have to suffer significant cultural changes, language issues - it would not be a good move for him but we will see. I also don't see that Liverpool would want to tie up significant money in a player who cannot move before he is 18 and would be far from the first team.}

17 May 2020 04:22:00
ED002,

Hope you're well!
Is there interest from Liverpool in São Paulo's 19yr old Brazilian Gustavo Maia - seems to be valued around £4mill.
I believe that Barcelona have the first option to buy him until mid July, is that correct?
If Barcelona don't go ahead with the deal, as things have yet to progress due to the current climate, Liverpool will take advantage of the situation.
Just wanted you to please clarify if the above is some what accurate or incorrect.

Personal view - moves and plays like a young Coutinho, nice prospect.

Much appreciated
Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Gustavo Maia (S) Prolific Sao Paulo reserves youngster who is expected to have a very good career and has been scouted by numerous sides. Atletico Madid and Shakhtar Donetsk have tried to strike a deal but it will likely be Barcelona who will win out as they have already deposited a reserve payment - with an option to complete by making a further payment this summer. A move to England is unlikely for a number of reasons, not least he would never be Home Grown.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2020 19:07:45
I'd love to have a player at Liverpool with that name. My 11 year old daughter's name is Maia, and maybe it would pique her interest in watching Liverpool more if there was a player with that name.

Apart from that, I cannot add anymore to the conversation as I've never seen him play.

15 May 2020 07:35:39
Hey ed002, is todd cantwell still of interest to liverpool? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - He will remain of interest but don't expect a move to Liverpool this summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2020 17:48:50
if norwich end up going down do you expect him to move on?

I know he is a decent player but do you think that would be damaging jones prospects as a future player.

{Ed002's Note - It is unreleated to Jones and if they are relegated there is a chance he will leave.}

15 May 2020 21:38:03
Not good enough for LFC.

16 May 2020 14:10:34
Would we have said Wijnaldum and Robbo were not good enough when we signed them? Only a question as I know loads on here including me weren’t impressed with Robbo signing and there were calls he wasn’t good enough. For me a squad is like a jigsaw some of the pieces might not be as spectacular as others but they are all as important to make the finished article.

16 May 2020 15:33:00
Regardless, he's not good enough for LFC.

16 May 2020 15:57:20
I’m sure Klopp is glad of the advice. Any recommends on who is good enough?

16 May 2020 15:59:07
I agree that Cantwell isn’t what’s needed for our team. He’s far too lightweight and will cost far too much for someone so unproven.

We’re heading into elite territory with our team and so squad additions need to be higher in quality for me.

16 May 2020 16:28:23
Ed2 mentioned Julian Brandt’s availability and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better target who can play as many positions as he can. He can play either wing, CM and CAM and far more quality than cantwell.

17 May 2020 09:22:56
Brandt is a much better player than Cantwell but I think you're missing one of the major appeals of Cantwell: he'd be a HG player replacing an outgoing HG player in Lallana. Brandt would take up yet another non-HG space and we're already skating close to the edge registration wise.

17 May 2020 12:59:17
HG is not a reason to buy a much poorer player. There are better options like Ben White to take the place of Lovren.

14 May 2020 20:57:47
Love what Kane has done sponsoring Leyton Orients shirts for next season on behalf of three charities. For his faults surely we can all agree this was a great move by the man.

Agree15 Disagree0

14 May 2020 22:55:41
Harry or Herbie?
anyways, that is cool. But what I want to know is, will Leyton Orient be sporting a pic of Kane on their shirts!?

14 May 2020 23:44:04
Brilliant touch.

15 May 2020 01:07:15
Well he claims it, but it was really Erikson.
(Joking) be nice to see more of this from the players at the top.

15 May 2020 08:16:12
He is claiming all of Orient’s goals now though.
But, yes, nice of him that move.

14 May 2020 12:23:36
Ed's, is it true that they have now decided to scrap the neutral venues ideas and clubs can use own grounds as long as they cover costs etc?

{Ed002's Note - It is not entirely resolved but a number of clubs are pushing for it to happen. But there are issues.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 May 2020 16:11:37
I really hope fans don’t gather outside grounds, hopefully the germans will set an example on the weekend.

However they have a much more trusting society, and they listen to authority.

{Ed002's Note - That is one of the major issues.}

14 May 2020 16:43:37
Without neutral venues, any idea how to fix it?
I would say points deductions but youd just have fans turning up at each others grounds.
Life bans won't work as the majority won't attend games and the manpower to police it would be huge.
I get why some clubs were against neutral grounds but I hope its something they can find a way to compromise on. Until then I'll be watching the Bundesliga!

{Ed002's Note - It is only the Liverpool supporters that think fans of other clubs turn up at Anfield. The problem quite frankly will be the Liverpool supporters way more than any others.}

14 May 2020 17:09:14
I know it’ll be a huge problem with us Ed002 I don’t disagree.

14 May 2020 17:12:21
Let’s hope all fans stay away from the grounds so at least we have half a chance of getting the season finished.

14 May 2020 19:15:55
Yeah let's hope not, I really don't think our fans will, given the fact that we are so desperate to get the title over the line. I'm sure there will be the odd idiot. Fingers crossed they find a safe solution for all.

14 May 2020 19:19:18
Guess that is because we are going to win the title and other fans have nothing to play for as such. I'd still like to think they won't turn up in any case. Despite what some people on here think, I actually think common sense will prevail here.

14 May 2020 19:25:17
I don't think we will be any worse or better than anyone else.

14 May 2020 20:56:58
What about a 20 point deduction to any club that has fans turn up outside. I’m being serious with this, what is perhaps the only thing that will stop the complete morons who might gather outside Anfield, or a club that avoids relegation for that matter? A punishment that actually then reverses the achievement they turned up to celebrate. If Liverpool are so confident their fans won’t do it, as they have suggested they are, and the clubs against neutral venues are so resolute in their objections, then let them play on with the jeopardy hanging over them.

{Ed025's Note - you can bet your life that everton supporters wearing red shirts would congregate outside anfield hopeful and other rivals at other grounds, and even if it was reds supporters the club would deny it, your idea is that bad that you could be elected on to the governments pandemic task force mate.. :)

14 May 2020 21:39:44
Actually I’ve just had the tap on the shoulder Ed!

{Ed025's Note - it was always coming mate.. :)

14 May 2020 21:55:51
Brutal that 25 mate.

14 May 2020 23:25:38
Glad to see u ed25.

15 May 2020 01:11:12
Hi ed2, random question - say for arguments sake the season does restart, what would happen if one club decided they would just pull their team out of games? assuming there is a rule under normal circumstances that covers if a club refuses to compete and would just be applied?

{Ed002's Note - That is still possible in Spain and Italy and no way forward has been agreed. Players refusing to play because they feel unsafe or being asked the sign a waiver accepting the risks is certainly an issue we may see. Clubs are likely to have to play with reduced squads if that were the case.}

15 May 2020 04:04:40
Ed25 called it as it is. I like it!

15 May 2020 08:06:13
20pt deduction has got to go down as one of the stupidest ideas ever.

15 May 2020 13:25:38
A 20 point deduction is a completely daft idea. Especially when that wouldn't be a deterrent as we're 25 points clear.

I know no-one really wants an asterix next to us, but if that asterix meant "still won the title despite being given a 20 point deduction".

16 May 2020 08:54:42
Gonna sound awful now but for £100k plus per week, I fully expect a fit healthy player not to refuse to play when we have the NHS turning up to do their much more dangerous jobs on a daily basis. If all footballers have to go into quarantine for a month to see the season out then I don’t see how they can refuse given how much they get paid. Instead I hear in the press that some of them are ‘scared’ - they are hardly frontline workers on minimum wage, they need to grow up a bit.

{Ed001's Note - bit of a difference. Nurses, doctors etc go into their jobs knowing that it is a risk they face every day, whether there is a pandemic or not. Footballers don't sign up to risk their lives and money should not come into it. That is one of the reasons why, in the original set up of the NHS, nurses etc were not paid massive wages. It was so it would be something people went into because they cared and wanted to do it, rather than because they wanted the money.}

16 May 2020 09:54:08
Footballers, and any sports where there’s a requirement to be super fit, are probably the least likely group of people to be in any danger from this. It’s easy to say money shouldn’t come into it but for the wages they get paid they should they shouldn’t we waffling about being scared when normal people are having to go about their lives for significantly less ££s. It’s not something that ever bothered me much before but I’m starting to become annoyed by this cosseted bubble that the players live in with no understanding of how the vast majority of their fans live.

{Ed001's Note - You do realise they have families they go home to that can be affected? Just because the footballer themselves is not likely to be in danger is utterly irrelevant and completely misses the point. They are not worried about themselves catching it, they are worried about their children, their partners, their parents and grandparents, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and so on.}

16 May 2020 11:00:21
Close family though likely to be at very very minimal risk given the likely age profile. And they shouldn't really be spending time with their wider family should they under the rules? sorry Ed001 but I'm struggling to be too sympathetic with them on this.

{Ed001's Note - minimal risk? You mean as they are likely to have babies? And what if the wider family lives with them, as most foreign players and younger players tend to live with their parents? You are just showing yourself to lack empathy and showing how selfish you are, not footballers.}

16 May 2020 12:11:52
Selfish? I've spent the last 8 weeks helping out at our local community hub delivering food to elderly / ill / vulnerable folk who REALLY can't leave their homes.

Sorry Ed001, it's just too hard to empathise with mega-rich footballers moaning when they'll be living in a super hygienic, regularly tested bubble when the vast majority of normal people are having to go out to work and put themselves at significantly higher risk. Guess we'll have to agree to disagree in this one.

{Ed033's Note - Well done johnnyr for helping people. Only elderly / ill / vulnerable folk need to be quarantined under house arrest surely, not the rest of us. Look at Sweden.

17 May 2020 00:05:56
Ed0333 - Sweden have the 4th highest death rate per % of population in the world. Their death rate is over 800% more than Norway. Not having a lockdown was a huge mistake and thousands have died needlessly.

13 May 2020 14:05:52
Hi Ed, I was wondering if Matheus Pereira is on Jurgen Klopp's radar at all?

{Ed002's Note - Honestly you will be disappointed each time you ask about random players and as far as I know he will stay at West Brom on loan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2020 16:01:34
Matheus Perreira, wow.

13 May 2020 13:47:48
Hi Eds, is there any interest in Florinel Coman? Looks like he has a bright future and could be a cheaper alternative to the likes of Werner and Rashica. Also is Jonathan Tah someone Liverpool have continued to follow? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea had an interest in Florinel Coman in 2017 but he moved to Steaua Bucharest. Tah will not be moving this year but was of course of interest to Rodgers in 2014 when he was at Hamburg - when he made it clear he had no interest in a move to Liverpool.}

Agree0 Disagree0
