I've seen us linked with looking at a possible agreement for Matheus Reis (LW) to join us from Fluminense next summer once he has turned 18.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 May 2024 22:19:50
Ed1, I appreciate to you for good work. I heard that Real Madrid given encouragement to Liverpool that Tchouameni could be sold in the summer.

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2024 11:54:20
No summer is complete without being linked to Tchouameni.

23 May 2024 14:37:49
Summer I seriously hope your not paying attention to indy on twitter who's reporting that crap ?.

23 May 2024 15:48:38
Pelican, nor Konoplyanka, Mata, Mbappe or Bellingham.

23 May 2024 16:08:51
I'm sure it's finally the window we get Quaresma.

23 May 2024 17:13:20
Arda Turan.

23 May 2024 18:29:14
Fekir.

{Ed077's Note - Simao ??

23 May 2024 20:47:13
Van der Vaart.

24 May 2024 00:07:53
I have it on good authority that we're finally close to agreeing a deal with Sylvain Marveaux. Must be a replacement for Salah.

24 May 2024 09:28:17
Fire up the babelcopter!
We’ll pick up Villa and Silva on the way.

25 May 2024 06:27:00
Simao, Aimar, Baraja, Alves, Barry, Ayala.

22 May 2024 20:45:02
Hi Eds - speaking of release clauses, etc, there's now a rumor that Mainz have an option to make Sepp van der Berg's loan permanent for €5m. Is there any truth to that? It seems very, very low, and I've been really hoping that Slot would be given a chance to have a look at him. Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Sepp van den Berg (CB) He likely won't get a chance as a starter at Liverpool and will probably be sold in the summer to raise funds - could be a mistake by the club. There is no release clause for Mainz but they will have a a first pick option if he were to be sold - and they have made their interest known and will look for an option to buy the player who has had a great season. Will need to speak to the club and see what other options he has.}

Agree3 Disagree11

22 May 2024 21:56:35
First option. so they'd have to match another teams offer?

23 May 2024 06:46:18
Agree with Ed that it could be a mistake. We’ll sell him for peanuts and end up paying £60m for someone of equal or lesser ability. He’s been one of the best CB’s in Germany, he’s had experience in the rough and tumble of the Championship back when he was a teenager, he has friends in our squad already, he came through the academy at PEC Zwolle whilst Slot was there, he already speaks fluent English and is acclimatised to the North West. Giving Sepp a chance makes so much more sense because he’ll hit the ground running and he’s been every bit as good as guys were being linked with like Tapsoba, Yoro, Silva, Hincapie, Inacio and Pacho.

23 May 2024 01:47:34
I appreciate the response Ed002!

23 May 2024 07:32:48
@MK, why do you think that Slot doesn’t know about SvdB? If he came through the PEC Zwolle academy system when Slot was there then Slot should know him. He is known at Liverpool and I’m sure they’ll have a reasonable idea about his performance, stats and capabilities. I’d say Liverpool and Slot will have a fair bit more information on, and idea about, the likelihood of the lad being someone who could do a job in the first team squad.

It could be he gets promoted into the first team squad, it could be that after assessing him the club chose a different option.

I read on social media that he is one of the best young defenders in Europe - quite a claim based primarily on 60 games for Preston and 30 for Mainz but if the club think so then I can’t see any reason why he won’t be here next season and if we do sell, given he is apparently better than Inacio etc, we should be asking for 60 - 70 million. It’s a win, win really.

23 May 2024 07:37:18
From what I’ve seen of VDB it makes absolute sense for us to have a look at him properly over the summer. Perfect Matip replacement. Someone needs to work on getting Konate properly fit though.

23 May 2024 07:43:39
Im with you MK. Slot is the ideal manager for SVDB, since his remit is to develop youth and what's already there.
FSG have never spent big two off seasons running, and Sepp has proven he has the minerals.

23 May 2024 09:13:03
@Jihnny, the club have had the opportunity to look at him for the last three pre-seasons.

23 May 2024 10:28:03
My worry WDW3 is whether Slot will have a say. Nobody really knows how the new set up will work. Slot might have very little input on who stays or who goes.

I’d like to think he’ll still get final say as he has to work with these players ultimately. As long as we take a look at Sepp in pre-season I’m happy. If Slot deems him not part of his plans I can live with that but if he’s sold before he even gets a sniff that would just be silly in my opinion.

23 May 2024 11:46:24
Should definitely be given an equal chance in pre season, then its upto him to perform.

23 May 2024 12:03:31
Fair comment @MK - hopefully Slot is part of the decision making .

22 May 2024 17:29:37
Ed’s I am seeing a lot of talk on social media and YouTube that Mac has a release clause and Real Madrid are looking to activate it. Any truth at all? I have looked through some of the posts but can’t find anything. Keep up the fantastic work.

{Ed002's Note - As I have said on a number of occasions, there is nothing on the TMS but he may have a separate agreement with Liverpool.}

Agree0 Disagree3

22 May 2024 18:27:08
Without Klopps magnetism, it will be interesting to see the level of player we are able to attract now.
We are a very well run club that clearly now gives youth a chance, but it remains to be seen if we can attract the next VVD level purchase (choosing us over City) .

22 May 2024 18:52:14
Thanks Ed, I honestly couldn’t remember if I had already seen one of you mention something about it or not. Old age is catching up with me.

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid may look to encourage his agent to have him run his contract dow for 2025.}

22 May 2024 19:55:36
2025?surely he would still have AT LEAST 3 years left.

22 May 2024 21:08:27
As long as we have champs league we should be fine attracting players but of course more difficult without Klopp. Of course last summer plenty of players we didn’t get over the line with Klopp so it’s clear that money talks.

23 May 2024 06:28:39
Hopefully it'll be easier to get players now Klopp has gone, he'll no longer be tapping them up and pissing their clubs off to the point that they won't do business with us.

22 May 2024 09:52:05
There is a lot of talk about getting Salah out and buying a replacement what about young Ben Doak. I assumed that the natural progression would be to introduce him I know he has had injuries this year but could save us millions.

{Ed002's Note - No. If Salah departs Liverpool will add a replacement from their Hunter/Fellows/Klopp list.}

Agree2 Disagree8

22 May 2024 10:16:36
I think don’t think Ben Doak is going to be good enough to break into the first team never mind replacing Salah.

22 May 2024 10:37:18
You, like a lot of others Longthing probably would have thought the same about Bradley and Quansah. And in fairness to doak, what he showed last year was ahead of what both of them would have produced at 17/ 18years of age We have a player there.

22 May 2024 11:28:15
Just been called up to the Scots squad despite been out injured for months. They obviously rate him highly.

22 May 2024 11:30:21
Will be interesting to see what the new coaching team think about the likes of Ben Doak, Kaide Gordon and Kieran Morrison who all predominantly play on the right side. Can see loans for at least two of them.

Calvin Ramsey will also need to be assessed.

22 May 2024 12:09:55
Ben’s clearly talented but he’s just a kid. Would you want him starting a champions league final? Of course not, he’s just at the start of hopefully a long and successful career but not a Salah replacement.

22 May 2024 12:27:12
Ben Doak is clearly talented. But no way is he ready to step into Salah’s shoes. Ridiculous to even suggest it. Salah is one of the best forwards in European football and has been for years. It requires a like for like, (or at least potential to be) quality player to replace.

22 May 2024 12:39:48
Salah has been one of greatest players of the premier league era and whose output has been utterly phenomenal. The guy has been a world class performer for years. To suggest the club should simply go with Doak as a replacement is just ridiculous, and that is no criticism of the lad himself. He’s played a handful of games for us, of course he’s shown promise, but if you think a club like Liverpool who will hope to be challenging for the league next season can let their top scorer go and not bring in a replacement then you must be mad. Let’s not lump that much pressure of doak, and let’s not over hype the lad just yet. I remember people saying jones was better than Foden a few years back, I like jones but let’s not get carried away with every youngster that comes through.

22 May 2024 13:15:04
Don't think anyone is sugggesting Doak is the prime replacement for Salah just that he's a big talent. there's always a bit of ye never know till they get a chance. Who would have thought Bradley and quansah would be putting it up to an Lfc legend in trent and a centre back who'd featured in the world cup final a year beforehand?

22 May 2024 14:16:28
The problem with dork is final product, ed1 has said this as well, he just dribbles and runs like adama touore (spelling)

22 May 2024 14:29:35
Either way hopefully the lad has a great Euros, convinces some of our fans and our new manager of his ability.

22 May 2024 14:40:57
Like Damien Duff, great dribbler poor production.
Definitely coachable and I’m sure Slott’s team can bring him on.

22 May 2024 14:44:55
Poor is actually harsh on DD.
He wasn’t poor, just didn’t always make the correct decision. Preferred to keep dribbling rather than play the best pass earlier.

22 May 2024 15:00:36
Ed do you know of the clubs plan for Doak? Is a loan likely for next season or is he considered a squad player?


Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware and with a new coach he will likely be looked at in pre-season. Perhaps keep him in the squad as cover.}

22 May 2024 15:04:56
To the people mentioning end product, he played nearly all his games for us at 17 years of age lads. Very high standards yis go by.

22 May 2024 15:43:50
If doak ended up as as good as duff Ron I'd be happy enough! 1 of last top level players ireland has produced.

22 May 2024 17:57:58
But he is that age June and people are asking can he take over from Salah. There is absolutely no chance whatsoever that Ben Doak in the new 2 seasons is good enough to replace Mo Salah.

22 May 2024 20:24:37
He has to be good enough to play on right wing for us mark. once salah is gone he's gone, no point using him as a reference after that. No one is good enough to replace salah, not prime Salah anyway. and we have no way of knowing where doak will be in 2 years.

22 May 2024 20:51:20
Doak not a Salah replacement, on what grounds? That he hasn't played much at top level when he's what? Just turned 18 and been called up to his national side? Well Salah didn't play first team football in the Egyptian leagues until he was 18 and started playing for Basle in Switzerland when he was 20, starting to play for Egypt around the same time. At 22 he went to Chelsea, failed, and only really became a worldie in his mid twenties with us. Far too early to say Doak can't replace Salah. He might be rubbish he might be great. You can't tell when he's barley kicked a ball for christs sake.

22 May 2024 21:39:48
Why does anybody have to be the next Salah? Particularly when a lot of people are saying Salah has been poor since his injury and that he has declined in the past year or two anyway?

Ben Doak isn’t Mo Salah, Arne Slot is Jurgen Klopp. Learn from the past to improve in the future but stop trying to repeat what’s gone before or we’ll just make the same mistakes.

22 May 2024 21:58:26
Calling him a dork is a bit harsh that has nothing to do with his footballing talent. Please let’s not get personal.

23 May 2024 07:36:48
Ooops, meant to say Arne Slot ISN’T Jurgen Klopp.

Also forgot to say Doak is still only 18, he’s a kiddie. We could probably give him another couple of moths before we write him off.

23 May 2024 10:43:07
Lads in fairness though should Salah leave can we honestly say for certain anyone playing rw can replace his numbers?

Look over the years, we always ended up with a great striker who scored goals - Fowler, Owen, Torres - then kinda changed that when we had Sterling, Suarez and Sterling, the goals were more spread over those 3 more (though Suarez scored loads in one particular season) . Then we got Mane, Bobby and Salah and it was mainly Mane and Salah that the goals came through.

What I am saying is that whilst, Doak or anyone else tbh, that replaces Salah may not necessarily score 20 plus goals we could see other positions score more goals as has happened before - the team will simply evolve.

23 May 2024 12:06:04
Exactly bill, Salah got 14 prem goals not counting penalties this season. if someone came in and got 10 in their first season is it really going to kill us. And seeing as Salah was apparently so s#! t this year our overall play may even improve.

22 May 2024 07:17:41
Morning ed002,

You mentioned MacAllister is on Madrid's list for 2025, why specifically 2025?

Cheers
Drogie.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs identify players they are interested in who aren't immediately available (e.g. in the case of Real Madrid, Florian Wirtz) or are deemed too expensive (e.g. Erling Haaland). Clubs will hope to see players run down their contract if entering the final year (e.g. Trent Alexander-Arnold).}

Agree0 Disagree4

22 May 2024 09:05:17
Ok thanks ed002, I understand regarding Trent, I’m just trying to see why MacAllister would be available in 2025, does his contract run down then too? cheers Drogie.

{Ed002's Note - He is a Real Madrid target for 2025 - it doesn't mean Liverpool would look to sell. It is no different to Liverpool having targets that clubs don't want to sell.}

22 May 2024 10:05:11
Imagine how Madrid could look in 2025. Alonso coming in as manager. Camavinga Tchouameni Mac Allister Valverde Bellingham Wirtz in midfield Vinicius Mbappe Haaland Rodrygo Guler Endrick up top ?.

22 May 2024 10:35:04
Or Klopp, maybe?

22 May 2024 10:11:52
Ed02 rumors of Alexis has a 60 million release clause in his contract? I don't remember him having that in there?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing noted on the TMS. He could of course have a separate agreement with Liverpool.}

22 May 2024 18:11:53
Would Klopp go to Real, or would he choose an ailing Barca? I can see him ending up at one of those two.

21 May 2024 19:45:05
It dawned on me that a fair amount of posters on this site might have never experienced the sheer joy of the sharkopod. I don't suppose there is a future one on the cards by any chance ed2?

{Ed002's Note - Maybe I could do one.}

Agree10 Disagree25

21 May 2024 22:58:16
Go on Ed002, for old times sake ;-)

22 May 2024 06:28:15
Yeeeeesssssss 002 that would be fantastic and a blast from the past, we might even get Macca back with a snippet of information from inside sources!
Excited.

22 May 2024 17:45:11
Sharkopods were excellent, and were appreciated by me that’s for sure.

{Ed002's Note - a slim chance if I gave time but I gave a bunch of travel coming up.}

22 May 2024 19:48:16
Any sharkopod would be greatly appreciated ed2. Safe travels mate and selfishly hope you find the time.

{Ed002's Note - Thank you. I will see what I can do. And you get some really cool music.}

22 May 2024 21:28:54
The music is the best part ed2. I think that’s what make them so fun. Well- also the in-depth analysis of potential incomings, but really- who’s bothered with that? And now i've the ten times daily check of rumours to see if one shows up to look forward to.
