Hi Ed002,

Hope you are well.

Thank you for all the knowledge you have in the footballing world. I appreciate it.

Our team needs full backs and an attacker. Whom are we considering?


{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet. I appreciate that it has been reported about all of these nailed on and reported players being of interest to the club - the likes of Werner, Dybala etc., but the reality is unless one of the key players were to leave that won't be happening.

Liverpool need a GK, CB, LB/RB cover and LM - could look to a Creative AM player (along the lines of Fekir) and drop Shaqiri and Keita down the pecking order - finding space for TAA in midfield looks tough to me, although Ed001 suggests that may well be on the cards. In terms of players looked at:

Kenny Lala (RB/RM) only just signed a new contract but has been looked at
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociadad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave
Ruben Dias (CB) Liverpool have watched the Benfica CB on several occasions and watched him in a national game against Croatia in September
Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry
Francisco Ferreira (CB) was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced the way he is in order to turn any potential buyers away, such as Manchester City, West Ham and Borussia Dortmund who have also shown a little interest and watched him in the B side over the past 18 months.

In terms of attacking players:
Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets.}
Klopp likes Lorenzo Insigne (LW) - would be a Salah or Mane replacement but a very, very expensive €150M asking price.}

Ed2 - amazing as always! Thank you.
Fully expect to be decimated for this but will ask anyway - any chance of even the tiniest hint of the area in football you are involved with?
Based in your answers, won't suprise me to learn that you ARE football 😀.

{Ed002's Note - From the right side I may well look like a football, but what I do to make a crust is well known. I am currently sat in the bar of the Tel Aviv Hilton as the lounge is really busy.}

2.) 22 Mar 2019 18:54:47
What’s you’re tipple Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Right now I am having a snifter if gin. Tomorrow I shall be in one of the world’s greatest cocktail bars drinking tequila.}

3.) 22 Mar 2019 19:00:38
cheers edd2.

4.) 22 Mar 2019 19:07:41
Oh wow ed, I am a former Israeli in the UK.
Going to watch the Austria match?

{Ed002's Note - No, right now I am coming over a couple of times a month and my PA is staying longer than me. Shabbat Shalom.

5.) 22 Mar 2019 20:16:05
Thanks for all the info eds much appreciate mate.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, enjoy.}

6.) 22 Mar 2019 20:39:35
Enjoy Ed002!

7.) 22 Mar 2019 21:07:02
Thank you Ed. I really appreciate what you do for the site.

{Ed002's Note - Poster of the week.}

8.) 22 Mar 2019 21:48:00
Remember ed, I’m 1st name on the list to take over your job when you retire. I’ll send my c. v. over ed, you’ll never have seen anything like it 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, no problem.}

9.) 22 Mar 2019 21:59:22
What's the gin you're on Ed2?

Thanks for the info mate, hope you're enjoying the night.

{Ed002's Note - Sipsmiths,}

10.) 22 Mar 2019 22:11:30
Superb Ed002, really appreciate the info! Hope you’ve having a grand old evening good sir.

11.) 22 Mar 2019 22:15:21
Very nice! have you tried Monkey 47 Ed? if not I highly recommend.

{Ed002's Note - Probably is the answer. I always buy a bottle of any new gin I see, so there is much at home in England.}

12.) 23 Mar 2019 04:23:18
I always pictured you as more of a single malt type Ed. Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Not for me.}

13.) 23 Mar 2019 12:55:27
Have you had Liverpool gin ed?! If not, we should get a bottle sent to you.

{Ed002's Note - I may have done.}

14.) 23 Mar 2019 13:18:01
As a man who has no doubt sampled the finest and most expensive guns out there, what’s your number 1 recommendation?

{Ed002's Note - I don't like guns.}

15.) 23 Mar 2019 13:24:27
Damn autocorrect 🙈😂. Gins ed, gins.

{Ed002's Note - I shall be heading to one of the world’s finest cocktail bars for an early evening snifter in a couple of hours when it opens. I have very much a soft spot for Sipsmith gin.}

16.) 23 Mar 2019 13:29:16
I must admit Ed2 I'm not a big drinker, I'm a light weight and I'm not into gin too much but that monkey 47 stuff goes down a treat.

{Ed002's Note - I will look out for it.}

17.) 23 Mar 2019 17:22:52
Good choice Ed. I've done a few gin tours around London, well worth it and very interesting learning the history. Beefeater 24 (the red bottle) took me by surprise, really good drop. And Gin Mare is excellent, infused with Mediterranean herbs etc.

{Ed002's Note - I would agree about the 24 - Hilton use it in their lounges as the house gin.}

18.) 24 Mar 2019 09:08:58
Ed002, my missus recommends The Old Oxford Artisan Distillery Gin. It’s a small company based in Oxford, we both went to Uni there and still have connections in the city but discovered it by accident, they produce some lovely gin.

{Ed002's Note - I'll check it out.}

19.) 24 Mar 2019 11:58:03
Ed002, I'm off to Tel Aviv in about a month. Care to share this world beating cocktail bar you're off to so I too can enjoy their tequilas? I'm a big fan of the Fortaleza Blanco Tequila which I first had when I was in Cali last year. I could drink that all day.

{Ed002's Note - Imperial Craft - you need to make reservations.}

20.) 24 Mar 2019 13:09:41
If we're on gin recommendations then Brockmans should be on your radar. Available everywhere these days and is the gin I regularly use to convert non gin drinkers!

21.) 24 Mar 2019 19:52:29
Yeah, Ed, Sipsmith is good stuff. I'm not a gin aficionado so to see you like that as well is a relief.

22.) 24 Mar 2019 22:19:02
Btw ed, seeing you write that about poster of the week brought a tear to my eye. I really appreciate that. Thank you.

23.) 25 Mar 2019 13:37:48
Caorunn and Rock Rose are a couple of nice gins made up my neck of the woods.

I'm more of a rum man myself, but the wife likes her gin and I take a fancy for it now and again.

Ed, I can't understand the motivation for a man with what sounds like a very hectic and interesting life taking time out to moderate this website, with the additional level of grief you get for (from what I can tell) simply having a soft spot for another English team and having a dry sense of humour, but I sure as hell appreciate the fact that you do, as you contribute greatly to making this site my most frequented webpage. I shall raise a glass to you the next time I get the offer of babysitters, in around 6 years time!

{Ed002's Note - I'll look out for them. Thanks.}

I said it before and i will say it again, if we do not REFRESH our squad this window, we will end up like Spurs.
Lallana and to some extent Ox cannot be relied on. Lallana is past his best and Ox just coming back from an injury where he gets his speed from.
So tell me why we can't scout and bid for Fernandes and the like?

we are interested in someone else because front 3 can get injured at any time.
we were lucky last season.
most LFC fans prefer Firmino over Origi. Yeah, Orig got us to the final but over 60 games, Origi won't score 15 + goals in the league.
thats why were are looking for someone else.

Origi and Shaq had limited game time because they can't compete with the front 3 unless the system changes.
Ox is better in the midfield.
We need another attacker (whatever price - low or high) to come in and compete with the front 3. simple at that.
Imagine we had Pepe coming in for injured Firmino at Old Trafford instead of Studge?
2 points dropped that could have won us th league.

dont play games. deal with reality.
why are we looking at Cornet/ AM and a senior fullback if we don't need signings?
so there are only 80 million+ players playing football today?
you mean to tell me that our scouts can't unearth a gem?
If Lewis and the like were ready why are looking to loan them out?
We NEED signings because can you trust a team without Van Dijk, TAA, Robertson, the front 3 and Fabinho.

Lets see:

Milner - not a full back. no pace. If Leeds came up, he would have left. so the Eds say.
Lallana - hasn't played for 2 seasons. Will he get back to his best being 30+?
OX - came from Arsenal with a thick medical report.
Keita - yet to prove himself.
Brewster - untested and also coming off a lengthy injury. Are we hoping that his another Fowler and Owen?
Gomez - not a full back. also coming off a lengthy injury.
Origi - prior to Barcelona game, most wanted him sold. So he scores 3 important goals out of a 60 game season and now he is the right stuff. We need someone to scare the front 3 to perform at the highest level at all times. Origo doesn't do that for me. Best games he had in a red shirt was Southampton away (hattrick) and Everton at home couple seasons ago.
All this not needing to refresh is based on what? Are we hoping the front 3 will remain injury free.

Let me clear one thing up, im not advocating marquee signings. Im not expecting 5 new players. All im saying is that Robertson and TAA can't play every game and there is no player in the current squad that can replace our fullbacks for a sustained period.

and why are we looking for an AM if the current midfield squad doesn't need REFRESHING?

lets hope that we don't end up like Spurs and fall off the title race like last season.

being injured (no matter the cause) for 2 seasons in a row is injury prone.
im sure there are many LFC fans who are not confident that Gomez can complete a full season without being on the treatment table.
Lets forget about his quality. we need to consider his availability.
Are these players i mentioned above capable of playing 15-20 games in a row without breaking down or needing rest. If you the answer is no, then we cannot consider them a new.


{Ed001's Note - seriously that is nonsense. Embarrassing nonsense.}

Ox, Lallana, Origi, Keita and Gomez are not new players. injury prone but are not new and shouldn't be considered as replacements.
Like Brewster, 90% of these players are coming off a serious injury in which we have to wait for all barring Origi to get back to full fitness. Worse case scenario, they will be gradually bedded in giving them time to regain fitness. Which essentially means that strain will be put on the starting 11. By then, maybe title challenge may be over. ALL teams will be improving and we cannot consider players on our books as improvements.
Why is it hard to understand that we need to REFRESH the squad.
Further to that, placing hope in the youth to mount a title challenge is a high risk. It has taken TAA 2 years to get to this level. And not all the youngster's will develop into quality back up. Case in point Solanke.
Im not screaming marquee but what i am saying we need cover at fullbacks because Gomez is better at CB. Milner was exposed by Palace at Anfield last season because of his lack of pace.
Playing Gini, Milner and Henderson in the midfield has no creativity. Shaq can't play in a mid 3 so can't be considered.
