Morning Ed002, not a usual post from me but.

Do we hold any interest in Rennes 18 year old midfielder Eduardo Camavinga?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) Rennes will look for a summer auction as he the player has no interest in signing a new contract. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs - but Arsenal can be discounted as they do not have the money nor the real need for the player and Spurs, and possibly Manchester United, as they are not attractive destinations for many players. Interest has also been shown by Borussia Dortmund (who were quoted €100M), Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Genk - but the last two can be discounted as they simply don't have the funds and the others have other targets. A move to England for the kiddie is less likely than a move to Spain. He is perhaps a little way from first team football at the highest level but PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid are considering taking a chance on him in the summer but will not pay the revised COVID-19 asking price of €75M and if Zidane were to depart Real Madrid that would change. Bayern Munich see him as an option to Zakaria. There was a discussion about the player with Chelsea who have a very good relationship with Rennes, but they have preferred options and see the price as too high - but perhaps something could be negotiated depending on departures which would be the driver for Chelsea. There has been no approaach from Liverpool.}


1.) 08 May 2021 10:37:24
Ok thanks Ed002, looks like he could become some player.

{Ed002's Note - Yes he is very well thought of.}


2.) 08 May 2021 22:25:07
Ed2, interested in your comment "Spurs, and possibly Manchester United, as they are not attractive destinations for many players"

Can you explain a bit more what that is about? Especially ManU?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have disgruntled midfield players and have repeatedly failed to provide any roadmap for players.}

A rumour in the echo - Mané might not be playing this afternoon.

Drogie

1.) 31 Jan 2021 15:42:36
Correct. Origi, Shaq and salah. poor.


2.) 31 Jan 2021 15:55:07
Minimino can’t get look in! I’d not be starting origi he’s dirt I don’t care what goals he scored! All he does is fall over and do step overs! (Hope he makes me eat these words)!


3.) 31 Jan 2021 16:03:11
Minamino would be entitled to throw in a transfer request at this rate .


4.) 31 Jan 2021 16:23:26
Taki cannot get a game for love nor money and feel for the lad. If Origi scores today and we win, well perfect. But it doesn’t excuse the fact he has not been up standard for as long as I can remember. He should be sold this summer to raise much needed funds. Come to think of it, he should have been sold the summer just gone but here we are.


5.) 31 Jan 2021 16:32:36
The time to sell origi was right after the champions league final win. He was worth twice as much on the back of that season. Can’t see him going now.


6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:29:44
Origi has been a passenger, literally offers nothing. Bound to score the winner now 😂😂😂.


7.) 31 Jan 2021 18:24:52
Embarrassing post.


8.) 31 Jan 2021 18:47:43
Aye, poor j6.


9.) 31 Jan 2021 19:21:38
How is it a poor post? Its factually correct. Origi offered nothing in that game. It's not slagging the individual but the performance. Jesus, snow flake city boys. I forgot an opinion is outlawed.


 

 

01 Jan 2021 09:34:05
Morning Ed's and Happy New year to you all!

It looks like we are set to sign 16 year old Stefan Bajcetic ( CB ) for the academy. Apparently we've been tracking him since 2019 and with the club wanting to get this particular deal over the line speaks volumes for the player's future potential.

Drogie

1.) 01 Jan 2021 13:01:05
Stefan Bajcetic was signed yesterday before the Brexit deadline.


 

 

30 Sep 2020 12:58:32
Quick couple of questions Ed002 if I may.

Hearing Sheffield United are in advanced talks to sign Brewster for around £17m, with a buy back clause?

Apparently ( yesterday ) there was a meeting regarding how the season could end should the C.V. take hold of the country again next year?

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not sure what "advanced talks" are but that is the offer they put on the table a few days ago. (b) The proposal is to have who ever is in the lead awarded the title if more than 50% of games have been completed by all sides should the season stop again.}


1.) 30 Sep 2020 13:46:39
Win next 15 games and we're there Drogie :) . In all seriousness, let's hope a vaccine is found as soon as is safely possible for everyone's sake as it's unlikely to disappear anytime soon.


2.) 30 Sep 2020 13:31:45
Surely that proposal will be turned down ed? Do you have any thoughts on it? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have been struggling to sell players because they have over-valued them and buyers are not knocking on the door. Hence no solution for Grujic, Brewster or Wilson just yet.}


3.) 30 Sep 2020 13:44:48
Wow, so that makes having a lead at the top of the table and maintaining it more important than ever!


4.) 30 Sep 2020 14:17:40
Hey Ed, would you know if this would be the case even if the team in the lead was only in the lead by goal difference or even just 1 point? Probably hasn't been clarified yet but thought I'd ask out of curiosity.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is very simple, it is whichever team is occupying first place after all sides have played 50% of their games if the season has to end. And most clubs are in agreement with it.}


5.) 30 Sep 2020 14:49:59
Is there any news on Shaq's departure? He is surely a good prospect for someone at around 25m.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure that clubs are queuing up at £25M.}


6.) 30 Sep 2020 15:33:30
Thank you Ed, I can't see clubs agreeing to it if that were to happen!

{Ed002's Note - As I said, most clubs are in agreement or don't care (such they would not vote against it).}


7.) 30 Sep 2020 18:26:38
Surprised they don't care, European places be settled the same way one presumes?


8.) 30 Sep 2020 17:54:47
Hi ED,

Would this still be on the basis of no relegation unless the season is completed.

{Ed002's Note - It is an unrelated issue.}


9.) 30 Sep 2020 23:13:56
Doubt the league would be stopped early it would financially cripple the league.


10.) 30 Sep 2020 23:43:04
I think it's a bit silly if the league was settled like that but maybe it's for financial reasons that clubs aren't voting against that proposal. Then again, I have no idea if prize money would be paid in full or apportioned in line with the number of games played.

I would find it strange if someone got crowned champions (even if it was us) for 20 games or so and then when back playing again to start another new season.


11.) 01 Oct 2020 06:38:02
That really would be a league title that didn't count, 50 percent doesn't seem right. I hope it doesn't get stopped.


12.) 01 Oct 2020 10:48:42
If it had to be cancelled then 50% is arguably fairer then 75%.

With 50% you'd expect everyones played each other once and the best team would likely sit top.

If you went with a higher percentage you then have teams that could have an easier run and all their hard fixtures at the end of the season. If they were top it wouldn't necessarily be a true reflection.

Fingers crossed we don't need to activate the rule anyway.


13.) 01 Oct 2020 11:28:35
Good point Wyred but still isn't fair and any team to win it like that wouldn't ever be seen as true champions imo.


14.) 01 Oct 2020 12:42:09
Its a complete worse case scenario though mate, if its triggered I think there will be a lot worse to worry about then of its fair.

It won't be ideal if its what's required but I think its better then scrubbing a season completely.


 

 

17 Jul 2020 09:39:49
The Telegraph are reporting Diego Carlos is Guardiola's first choice CB. Be interesting to see if we throw our hat in the mix should city make a move for him.

The only reason I'm posting this is because Klopp has an interest.

Have you heard anything on this ( regarding City's ) interest Ed002?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City had dropped their interest in preference of two others - but it could return. Real Madrid has a sustained interest but the focus is seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC or another. Barcelona have him on their list of CBs but money is going to be an issue this summer and they will look to horse trade using Ivan Rakitic. Priority is, like Real Madrid and get any transfer completed and then see where they are (they have already deferred their two major purchases to next summer). Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer. If this happens, I would think it would be the big move for the club this summer and would leave Gomez picking up pieces across the defence. May be viable for Liverpool to include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal but that opportunity is very quickly drifting away and having no funds will hamper them.


1.) 17 Jul 2020 12:26:58
I think Gomez will be picking up the pieces of his liverpool career if we spend big money on a CB.


2.) 17 Jul 2020 12:45:20
Thanks for the comprehensive reply Ed002.


3.) 17 Jul 2020 13:27:57
You need to ask yourself, if Virg was to get injured, can you see Gomez as the same player without Virg next to him. Gomez is brilliant but I think Klopp would want another leader/ strong centre half. Personally I don't think Gomez posseses leadership qualities in the backline if we missed Virg.


4.) 17 Jul 2020 13:33:05
I doubt they'll sell him for a hat.


5.) 17 Jul 2020 18:31:32
Gomez may be a bit young to be a Virgil type CB but he is still a very good CB and I do not think we will be looking to replace him.


6.) 17 Jul 2020 17:30:11
Hi Ed, I hope you are keeping well.

Do you think we would make a move even if we hadn't done the potential business that would raise the (or any of the) funds?

I have read and understood your view re our finances but is this player and in particular this position important enough for Klopp to react should it look like he is losing him prior to the expected sales?

I appreciate that it's a speculative question but I hope you see what I mean and why I ask.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The club does not have funds without selling unless they dip in to the money that is available from all of the assets being mortgaged, including Anfield. That makes ltlle sense to me.}


7.) 17 Jul 2020 20:25:32
Gomez can't pass. Has only got pace. he's a 3rd choice if a more cultured def is available. Klopp knows it. He struggled to oust matip before he got injured.


8.) 17 Jul 2020 21:39:56
I don't understand what has happened to Gomez's confidence? As He was doing fine last season. As things stand today, Matip is the better CB.


9.) 17 Jul 2020 23:27:56
Gomez can't pass? had to read that line a few times.


10.) 18 Jul 2020 03:20:30
Get off Gomez back. We just won the league and there was an expected hangover. Granted we didn't expect a 4-0 hangover and a loss to Arsenal but don't throw the towel in on Gomez. I personally like the scenario of Gomez filling in at all spots, Larouchi getting a move away which is good for his career and whatever transfer funds we have being used for Carlos. I think we are a few years from seeing Ki jana and Sepp ready to step up, so it would make plenty of sense to me.


11.) 18 Jul 2020 03:58:48
Joe gomez is 23 and has won the premier league champions league and club world cup as a centre back with liverpool.

Some people are saying he ain't good enough. Name me a better centre half around his age. He plays in a high pressure environment week in week out at a top level. He ain't a 23 year old cb playing in a soft league. Look at our goals conceded total this year.

Hes about 6 years away from his peak too btw.

If gomez struggles with anything its confidence at times. That will mature naturally. he's a much better centre half than even he thinks he is and certainly a much better centre half than some liverpool supporters think.

He would walk into any other defence in the premier league and he's home grown as well.

Liverpool need another back up cb if lovern leaves. Nothing more. If they can get a really good one who is happy to rotate and at a decent price then great.


12.) 18 Jul 2020 14:07:54
you don't have be over 23 to pass a ball.


13.) 18 Jul 2020 18:15:55
What is this nonsense about Gomez not being able to pass?

Sure, he can't ping 50 yard passes like Vigil can, but he's adept enough at passing for what he needs.


14.) 19 Jul 2020 07:48:20
he often puts others under pressure with his passing. Personally think it's a weak point far outweighed by the rest of his game.

We do need another first choice CD though.


15.) 21 Jul 2020 22:05:49
I like gomez he’s quick and statistically gomez and VVD are a great partnership. As in they rarely concede. For me liverpool still need a proper striker more than anything else. 20 plus shots on goal scoring one isn’t good enough. Mane Salah and Firmino are superb but often they need 5 chances to score one. Firmino hasn’t scored at anfield this season. Brilliant player who for me is one of the first players on the team sheet but his finishing isn’t great. We need a Torres type up top imo.

I wasn't sure if I wanted Everton to go down, more so we could carry on the banter when they came to Anfield.

After yesterday, I hope they go down. They smashed up the Anfield road end toilets, broke tv screens, continually sang murderers and you haven't liked anyone since 1989 ( I was there and it wasn't just a few ) lighter and coin throwing onto fans sat in the lower main stand.

They are by far the most vile away support I've come across in recent times and I've been going home and ( away, so much much recently ) since the 80's.

Drogie

1.) 25 Apr 2022 11:56:14
The bitterness has reached new levels. Listen to yesterdays Five Live Football Daily podcast following the match. You could almost hear the spit coming out of the Everton fans mouth. Apparently there’s an agenda against little old Everton. They must have forgotten Prickfords abuse on Van Dijk last season. They are really embarrassing themselves.


2.) 25 Apr 2022 12:22:02
It's not on but believe me guys our fans are no angels on that front. Some of the away fans see it as a badge of honour to come back from places like old Trafford with their seats. The murderers thing is getting worse and worse and its been passed down to the younger generation to. The days of the friendly Derby have long since gone and I really doubt they'll ever come back.


3.) 25 Apr 2022 13:00:15
All clubs including ourselves have nasty waste of air fans. Is there no way to identify these idiots and just ban them for life?
Regardless of age or reason do something wrong and you loose the ability to come watch the match live.
I can only see something like this would stop the nonsense.


4.) 25 Apr 2022 13:53:48
Sadly I don't see any other way than increasing security arrangements at stadiums. More cameras everywhere, more security personnel and being more strict with those who are caught (and issuing lifetime bans) . If you take sufficient preventive actions, chances are that miscreants will always have a second think over it and decide it's not worth doing.


5.) 25 Apr 2022 14:04:19
Of course all football clubs do, but moving away from the crimes of individual people and he-said-she-said, the culture and mentality that has enveloped everybody associated with that football club is absolutely deplorable. The fact that every one of them to a man were proud of what they saw yesterday and haven’t stopped whining tells you all you need to know. Any club that boos their new manager after 45 minutes in the first game of the season deserves to go down.


6.) 25 Apr 2022 20:43:51
That's it Baz it used to be so different- ours was a fierce rivalry but one that saw rival fans dit beside each other and why not? Ppl grew up supporting red whilst a dialing was a blue, friends and family alike were blue and red but these days the banter and goodwill seems sadly gone and too much bad elements on both sides mean I don't think we'll ever see those days again.

{Ed025's Note - your spot on bill. Unfortunately it’s a society problem that has spilt into football mate..


7.) 25 Apr 2022 21:35:03
100% ed25 it's definitely a society thing. What has helped give a platform for these behaviours is social media and it will continue to riddle society until they are all brought under control. Unfortunately it's turning the beautiful game into a sour bitter field of hatred rather than the sport its supposed to be.

{Ed025's Note - your dead right joe. It’s one of the reasons I fell out of love with football to a large degree mate , that and the greed. I went to a derby at goodison about 8 years ago and after witnessing the vitriol and hatered spewed from both sets of supporters I vowed to never go to a match again. And I have been true to my word..


8.) 26 Apr 2022 08:28:51
It has 100% got a lot more vicious. I remember in the 90s seeing blue and red mixed together in the stands. Not sure when exactly it changed but I know watching on Sunday that I’ve never wanted us to beat Everton so badly.


 

 

30 Mar 2022 07:59:49
Bellingham looks to be a real talent, love to see him in a red shirt!

Drogie

1.) 30 Mar 2022 12:53:20
Agree Drogie. The perfect successor for Hendo. Might be difficult for us to match Dortmund's valuation though.


2.) 30 Mar 2022 14:04:35
Given that we’re likely to have to replace Salah if he doesn’t sign, then I’d say that Bellingham is a luxury that we can’t afford this summer, as there are plenty of midfielders at half his price who would function well in our midfield.

{Ed002's Note - Bellingham is not joining Liverpool this summer.}


3.) 30 Mar 2022 14:24:43
What if, now bear with me, Bellingham really wants Liverpool. Not this summer as Ed002 has repeatedly stated but at the end of his contract? Stranger things have happened.


4.) 30 Mar 2022 14:14:53
Is he staying at Dortmund ed?

{Ed002's Note - Jude Bellingham (CM) Manchester United and Chelsea were keen before he moved to Germany and would be interested again when he is made available for sale – and expect interest from Manchester City and Liverpool as well. Dortmund will not be forced in to selling him this summer and will seek a huge fee when he is sold. Reasonably I would discount Manchester United as being an attractive option, but expect Real Madrid, if Haaland moves elsewhere, to throw their hat in to the ring.}


5.) 30 Mar 2022 16:39:44
So that’s the summer transfer saga of 2023 sorted then.
I have a feeling we are going to address our midfield issues this summer so we might end up ruling ourselves out.


6.) 30 Mar 2022 17:19:30
Bissouma in with 12 months left this summer along with Carvalho. Should be more or less covered by sales and then go big on Bellingham next summer.


7.) 30 Mar 2022 18:22:34
I don't want bissouma and don't think that one will happen personally.


8.) 30 Mar 2022 19:05:49
What is actually happening with Bissouma. Seen reports he’s on bail pending enquires still and seen lots of witness’s have said they seen him led away in handcuffs but none that actually seem the incident he’s been accused of.

Seems very much that’s he’s been found guilty until proven innocent.


9.) 30 Mar 2022 19:14:23
Bissoumas a very good player, always impresses and would improve our midfield group. I'd imagine Ox will move on so we'll need somebody.


10.) 30 Mar 2022 19:39:58
Man hasn't been charged, like JK said until he has he should be judged as a footballer not a criminal.


11.) 30 Mar 2022 20:03:35
Well said JK. People talk about justice and condemn this man when he has not been charged.

Bail was up late January and no further details. Not re-arrested, no bail extension.


12.) 30 Mar 2022 21:07:38
Ed002 - would that be haaland to Man City?

{Ed002's Note - Quite possibly.}


13.) 31 Mar 2022 07:29:30
I remember not so long back some on here were claiming we wouldn't win a thing this season if we didn't sign Bissouma and our form would slowly unravel.


14.) 31 Mar 2022 06:44:38
Thanks ed002, does Bellingham have a release clause?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


15.) 31 Mar 2022 14:17:22
I also remember in January posters going through boxes of Kleenex every day crying we didn’t need a shiny new toy.

Them posters are now using that Kleenex for something else over that shiny new toy.


16.) 31 Mar 2022 19:55:23

Do you have any idea what will be released? Will we be in the black this season.

Did we make a loss last season?

Cheers
Drogie.

{Ed002's Note - The club will make a significant loss, like most if not all PL sides due to Covid. And yes there was a loss last season.}


2.) 03 Jan 2022 21:05:17
Thanks ed002.


3.) 04 Jan 2022 07:11:59
I think Chelsea was £147 million loss? Can't see Liverpools results being much better, if at all.


4.) 04 Jan 2022 09:12:27
Ed002 apologies if a silly question.

When football clubs release their accounts is it over 12 months? And is it Jan-Dec or Apr-Mar or an actual season or non of the above?

{Ed002's Note - It is nearly always July-June.}


5.) 04 Jan 2022 09:35:26
THE LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB AND ATHLETIC GROUNDS LIMITED- the main entity makes its accounts up to 31 May of each year, this year due for submission by 28 February 2022 to Companies House.

Morning ed002,

Is it true FSG have been linked with a purchase of Brazilian team Cruzeiro?

Great insight as always there ed002 - if I can push you further on this, City seem to be able to buy top players most seasons, so can we presume City’s income is greater than ours? If so, where and which revenue vehicles do they excel at?

This is a very informative thread ed002 as so many fans criticise the owners for not putting their hands in their pockets so to speak.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - The income between the clubs is not significantly different. Manchester City fund transfer through sales and income they recieve from commercial revenues and money they have from their success in the league, champions league etc.. They do better with sponsorship whilst Liverpool do well with sponsorship their income from winning trophies is rather more sporadic and whilst they had significant in come from one sale (Coutinho) they have been building debt. Compared to Chelsea who have been largely paying for purchases through sales in recent years there are improvements that can be made. The owners have funded the training facilities and have loaned the club money - many fans crave rich Arab owners of course, and perhaps one day their wish will come true.}
