Not saying it's true but read reports we are actively seeking to seal a deal for Upermecano now for his release clause of 36.5.
Apparently we want it done so he can move on 1st January, not saying it's true but that's what I have read. Anyone know if there is any truth to this?

I wouldn't mind him to be honest and I personally think it will be one of Upermecano, Carlos, Kabak or White.


1.) 22 Oct 2020 20:58:56
Seeing as the release clause comes into effect next summer I doubt we’d be getting that.

2.) 22 Oct 2020 22:26:42
Release clauses have no relevancy to English clubs. Could bid £100m and the offer still be rejected.

3.) 22 Oct 2020 22:01:50
Are you sure it's TRUE?

4.) 22 Oct 2020 22:05:46
Release clauses usually mean very little for prem clubs it prob only applies to German teams. Seems to low to be true.

5.) 23 Oct 2020 10:38:44
No chance of Upamecano. Why do people act as if VVD has died? He will be back next season.
If money is an issue, look for better value in the market like Konate or Ndicka. Less over hyped players that will be worth way more in the next 12 months.

6.) 23 Oct 2020 11:17:51
Because buzzer without vvd we will struggle to make a challenge on most fronts this season we need a decent first choice defender to see the season out from January onwards.

Klopp wanted a CB but chose against signing one so I’m guessing he will be pressing the Howard for more money to get his first choice. Don’t be surprised if we go for Carlos.

{Ed002's Note - It has been a bit of a shock to find out that not every Liverpool player is world class then - and it seems you now all think it is pretty much a one horse club.}

7.) 23 Oct 2020 11:52:24
Give Gomez and Matip a chance, if were a few points clear by Xmas a lot of people will have calmed down. can't see us splashing if were in a position where we could win the league without reinforcements.

8.) 23 Oct 2020 13:11:17
Jason, we definitely need a CB without doubt. We cannot last the season with only Matip and Gomez.
But asking for the likes of Upamecano is just some fans being spoilt. Vvd will be back for next season and what we need to look for in January is a cost effective and hungry CB looking to take the next step in his career. Upamecano may be most of those things but we will simply be tempting a bidding war with the like is Barcelona and Man Utd who are both apparently very interested in him.
Like I mentioned earlier, there are some high potential quality young CBs like Ndicka that can be bought for a fraction of what Upamecano would cost and are of similar quality or will be if coached properly.

9.) 23 Oct 2020 13:33:19
Pretty sure Man City missed Laporte last season and that's with other £30/ £50 million players to chose from👍.

10.) 23 Oct 2020 14:03:57
Spot on buzzer.

11.) 23 Oct 2020 15:43:52
Not a one horse club at all Ed002 but it takes class all over the pitch to compete and at cb he was our class the front 3 are still world class the full backs are still world class, the sheer amount of games means you need it everywhere but who am I to deny you your daily pop at the reds 😂😂.

12.) 23 Oct 2020 17:58:57
Carlos is the only one who's stats stack up. check out sam mcguire's articles on the candidates.

13.) 23 Oct 2020 18:37:32
Don’t think Ed002 was having a pop at the club more the fickle fans who claimed we have world class players all over the pitch who are now claiming the worlds about to end. VVD is a stallion though.

14.) 23 Oct 2020 19:14:53
Alisson is should be back at the weekend so I’m sure Matip, Gomez and Fab can hold the shop til VVD comes back.

15.) 23 Oct 2020 21:09:35
Vvd was not in form and wasn’t for a while needs to use the time to actually watch the game.

16.) 23 Oct 2020 23:46:48
Fuser how did Arsenal triggered the release clause of Thomas P from At Madrid?

{Ed002's Note - You need to search and then perhaps you will understand.}

17.) 24 Oct 2020 08:00:05
We will miss Van Dyke of course. Despite comments here, we are still very lucky to have a team mixture that is made up of experience, world class skill, very hard working team players and a wonderful set of exceptionally talented young players.
The world class players at present I would class as:
Van Dyke

Closely followed by

Plus our youngsters
Rhys Williams
Neco Williams
Billy the Kid
Nat phillips
Van set Berg

Oh yes, we have a great squad, great manager and a bright future. Hang on for the ride, it's going to be exciting.

18.) 24 Oct 2020 01:31:32
Hi Ed002 I’ve tried searching before and again just now and anytime I do most articles just says how Arsenal went in with a lower offer to start with and couldn’t get the player. They then triggered the release clause and got their man not that At Madrid we’re happy about it.
That’s why I was curious as fuser said a release clause has no relevance to English clubs but it did when it came to Arsenal getting Thomas Partey.

{Ed002's Note - Because he was playing in Spain where the rules are different. I have explained that on the site numerous times.}

19.) 24 Oct 2020 10:12:06
Cheers Ed002 I Put his name in the search bar and couldn’t see anything like that.
Cheers for letting me know. I now know basically you can meet a release clause in Spain and it’s excepted but rules are different in Germany and a release clause is only any use to German clubs and not else where.
Thanks mate have a good one.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching on termination.}

20.) 24 Oct 2020 11:12:23
We went into this season a senior centre back short. Fans were concerned by this but thought this could possibly be rectified in Jan. However, the situation now is that we have 2 senior centre backs and a midfielder who is quite adept at playing centre back. Very reminiscent of City’s predicament last year. This is going to be the most intense season yet with the condensed fixture list and one of our remaining centre backs (Matip) in injury prone so it’s hardly unsurprising for supporters to wonder how we’ll cope and think it’s a good idea to bring in a new centre back in Jan.

21.) 24 Oct 2020 12:38:31
I still don't understand why we need to buy in January. That's why we have the youth system to suppliment when necessary. Williams and Phillips need to be given the opportunity to prove themselves in my opinion. Plus Phillips is home grown. Save the money and use the system as it is intended.

22.) 24 Oct 2020 15:55:09
I can see were you are coming from Stone, but its quite possible that both Gomez and Matip will be out injured and we will be stretched at the back,
for me, I think that we now need one more centre back, 3 have been mentioned recently but Upacamano would be my choice, great defender and only 21 yrs old,
Ed says that he can play on the left and right side,
again, funds might be a bit low, so maybe not .

23.) 24 Oct 2020 18:04:21
Cheers Ed002.

24.) 25 Oct 2020 12:41:54
“ I still don't understand why we need to buy in January. ”

We went into the season a senior centre back short. We now have 2 senior centre backs, one of them is injury prone and we are playing in a condensed, more intense season is probably the response.

Nat Philips wouldn’t be here if an appropriate price had been received so I guess he’s been assessed as not being up to standard.
Rhys Williams was playing non league football 7 months ago so I’d imagine he’s been deemed not ready to start week in week out for one of the top teams in world football now.

25.) 26 Oct 2020 17:43:03
but no one is suggesting that r williams, or billk k would be needed "to start week in week out". There's plenty of options before that scenario. Why buy someone in Jan who will be with us for 4/ 5 years, on 100K a week when VVD might be back in 8 months. Matip might be back next week and could be fit, in great form for the whole season.
Lets not be so reactionary and instead trust that the club finds another solution. Kompany was a DCM before being moved back by City and it worked out well for them, plus fabs being back there gives Jones more opportunities which we all wanted for him too.
Just my opinion.

26.) 28 Oct 2020 13:08:03
Who are all these options that can play “week in week out” when required?

Matip is injury prone.
Even if he returns next week he’ll still be injury prone.
His entire career with us is littered with injuries.
He can’t play 3 games a week which is exactly what we’ll be doing for most of this season.

It’s not reactionary to think we should have 4 senior centre backs so that when 1 or 2 aren’t fit we have options.



11 Oct 2020 13:21:29
I know we aren't moving for Butland this window but I'm reading he is out of contact at the end of this season. Would it be feasible to agree a move then?
I only ask as I think this would be Adrian's last season with us so we may need another number two at this point.

He's still only 27 as well which surprised me.


{Ed002's Note - I would have thought that Liverpool could look to their well thought of younger goalkeepers as a number two rather than a Stoke City reserve. As such I really can't help with what will happen with him next season.}

1.) 11 Oct 2020 15:13:06
Completely agree Ed, we have Grabara and Keheller, not to mention a number of others who should be able to step in.

If they aren’t at that level then we should allow them to move on.

Butland was a decent young, and importantly, English keeper who we were interested a while ago but I don’t believe it is the case anymore.

2.) 11 Oct 2020 22:26:09
Ideal if their ready to be not at a top club. With Adrian out if contract in the summer id be amazed. If an experienced not never came in. Look at our rivals. Man utd- De gea, Henderson and Romero. City- Ederson, Bravo? And Carson. Chelsea- Mendy, Kepa and Caballero! Obviously utd and Chelsea will be looking to move 1 of their's on in the summer id imagine. But will still be left with 2 established goalkeeper's.

3.) 12 Oct 2020 08:09:18
Yet all those clubs have inferior defensive records to ours despite us spending more time without our no.1 available. Caballero and bravo have been very poor and error prone when used so it's not like those clubs have a successful blueprint that we need to match as it's not shown to give them any advantage over us to date.

4.) 12 Oct 2020 03:16:25
I would have thought that myself ed. Why give Kelleher those mins in the cup last season to be replaced this year?

How's Liverpool's gk coach these days? Still a good lad? lol.



02 Jul 2020 11:22:48

Could I ask if Fekir is still considered a viable option, even after that happened a couple of years ago?
Just wondered if the club still seen him as an option, especially now that he is with a different club so no Alaus .


{Ed001's Note - we dropped all interest. It would be very surprising if we now saw him as an option.}

1.) 02 Jul 2020 14:11:33
Cheers Ed.



25 Jan 2020 09:21:16
I'm assuming the reported 47 million bid for Isco which has reportedly been rejected is bull?


{Ed002's Note - Is Isco a Havertz replacement.}

1.) 25 Jan 2020 11:21:53
i read we have moved on to fabion ruiz after isco bid rejected.



17 Jun 2019 09:15:03
Hi Ed's just wanted to ask has there been any new developments in Clyne at all?


{Ed001's Note - not that I know of. I had expected him to make the loan permanent, but they are having a rethink due to his lifestyle.}

1.) 17 Jun 2019 09:38:53
Saw him stocking up on pizzas and junk in Waitrose by ours with his boys. Clearly living his best life!

2.) 17 Jun 2019 10:20:12
He got the munchies!

3.) 17 Jun 2019 10:36:17
Should have never signed him. The Southampton defence at the time before he moved made him look good.

He is just costing the club more and more money the longer he stays on.

We would be better off terminating his contract and pay what is due to him as he is on holday at Anfield and unlikely any club going to take on his wages.

{Ed001's Note - he never looked good at Southampton or Palace, it was a bizarre signing caused by bad scouting. One of the most important things is to check out a player's background and lifestyle and no one did that.}

4.) 17 Jun 2019 12:33:50
Such a short career in football so why waste it? Can party and do what you want at 36+ when you retire!

5.) 17 Jun 2019 15:18:48
What lifestyle choices is he making? Is he a smoker? Party man?

6.) 18 Jun 2019 22:35:57
What's all this about his lifestyle?

Just for banter

Who do people think will be the CB priority in January?





1.) 19 Oct 2020 11:59:43
Unless we are absolutely desperate I don't think we would get one.

January is generally tough for purchases, every man and his dog will know we want one and we will get charged a premium and with no fans returning in site C. V will hit us hard.

I think the aim will be to get by with what we have to the end of the season and asses but another long term injury to either gomez or matip will likely force our hand.

2.) 19 Oct 2020 12:02:30
Upamecano. I can’t see Klopp just writing off the season because VVD is injured, I think he’ll sign a world class defender and try and maybe win something, but it’ll be twice as hard now. I’ll give it to mid November and we’ll have Henderson and Fabinho in defence.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

3.) 19 Oct 2020 12:19:19
Hmmm, tough one. Don't give up reds fans. Man City don't look as ruthless this season. I still think we're favourites for the league. And I think klopp will sign a cb. Ed02, you told us not to expect much this summer and we signed 3 great players, spending 75/ 80mil. Football is unsustainable and remains so despite the cv crisis. Teams will still spend, especially if they have ambition.

I think gomez and matip can do the business. Can they stay fit? Probably not. I think klopp will sign a cb. I'm surprised he hasn't looked to the championship. Waiting til January is risky.

I think we'll see more heavy metal football.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool did not spend that amount - they simply aquired further significant debt.}

4.) 19 Oct 2020 12:18:40
Seems like Matip is injured again Ed002 as unless there's January addition of some sort it's one of the youngsters filling in.

{Ed002's Note - Is Matip out for the season now? Have the club said VVD is out for the season yet? Clubs need to deal with injuries - they have a squad to do so.}

5.) 19 Oct 2020 12:32:02
Yeah I know ed02, tbh I'm not that bothered by the debt. That's not my job. I've got my own responsibilities. I just want to switch on the tele on Saturday and see the reds win. If we have another 30mil of debt? It's not fair, it's not right but there are worse things going on than clubs building debt.

{Ed002's Note - It is rather more than that.}

6.) 19 Oct 2020 13:34:27
If we get a CB in Jan, it's more likely to be someone like Ndicka or Ajer (more cost effective) .

7.) 19 Oct 2020 14:12:32
Matip only had a scan. There is nothing in the media about it, even.

8.) 19 Oct 2020 16:49:38
$400 million of debt is only a peanuts worth.
Go for Koulibaly in January. It's only money.



10 Feb 2020 13:49:53
I've been wondering whether Klopp would be audacious and make enquiries on Martinelli of Arsenal. I know it's left field and that we have Origi, but I'd love Martinelli at Anfield as our fourth choice striker.

He can play anywhere up front has years and years on his side and potentially an excellent striker for many years to come. I think at his age he's a perfect fourth choice for us. Not in a bad way but I don't see Origi as a player who will be first choice week in and out, if/ when one of Firmino, Salah or Mane leave.

But in Martinelli I do see a player who could progress and naturally replace on of them over next few years, in the nicest way I don't see Origi being able to do that.

Over the years we've seen the club on the up, signing players from the other top six rivals, so why shouldn't we try? His wages wouldn't be a threat to our structure either as he's on relatively low wages and still not yet a regular for his club who are in a transitional period.

In my opinion I think he'd be interested if we moved for him, admittedly Arsenal wouldn't be. I remember Klopp labelled him the best striker of his generation when we played them in cup, so I think Klopp would take him. Also we have three Brazilians already in squad who would help him settle.

An ideal summer's business for me would be both Martinelli and Havertz that would be more than In my opinion. We have quality youngsters to cover the full back positions and I could see a few players leave this summer also.

Plus we have Jones and Grujic still to break through, so we don't need a lot of players just a couple each year.

I can honestly see all of Lallana, Origi, Lovren, Clyne, Chirvella and maybe Matip if Klopp remains interested in the centre half whose name I forget. Was it Rodriguez or something?

Anyway just an opinion but would be interested in hearing views of others.


{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath about Martinelli and Havertz. The centre half is Garcia.}

1.) 10 Feb 2020 14:09:41
I have watched Havertz a few times these season and for £100m there are much better options. Would rather give Curtis Jones a try. Martinelli looks good but no chance of that happening.

2.) 10 Feb 2020 14:58:23
Ed002 I thought the defender we was looking at was Diego Carlos?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, oops.}

3.) 10 Feb 2020 15:06:44
Lol not that I was correcting you at all 😂.

He does look decent but I’m not sure what it would mean fir Gomez future.

{Ed002's Note - It will put Gomez in the position of covering the defensive positions but not being a starter. Don't lose sight of the Home Grown quota is potentially going to be an issue next season with two players no longer under 21 and three HG players possibly departing which means the club will only be able to add one non-HG player without others leaving from the first team squad. If ICD were to be sold the club may not start the season with a full over 21 squad.}

4.) 10 Feb 2020 15:59:46
Right ok Ed, could be a few HG players in and out then in the close season. Which 3 HG players are possibly leaving please, and who is ICD?

{Ed002's Note - Lallana, Clyne, possibly James Milner, Isaac Christie-Davies .}

5.) 10 Feb 2020 16:53:42
Ok mate fair enough. Could he an interesting summer ahead then, and signing foreign players might not be straight forward if we are restricted.

6.) 10 Feb 2020 19:20:34
I find it interesting the OP suggested Martinelii might leave first team football at arsenal to be our 4th choice striker I will guess I'm being pedantic and he actually meant first choice back up to the front 3 as that's the only logic I could see the player being even remotely interested in us.

7.) 10 Feb 2020 20:17:39
Does the HG quota make it more likely that Jones will remain in the first team squad?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is unrelated to Jones and others under 21.}

8.) 11 Feb 2020 02:23:36
I think martinelli will have his eyes on replacing aubameyang who will surely be moving on within next year or so and arsenal will be hoping and wanting him to step up and not need to splash out on a striker. If we went for him arsenal would want big money and martinelli himself might not want to swap the chance of being probable main forward at arsebal to being a back up for us.

We haven't really signed from our top rivals either as poster suggested we have lately. Only oxlade Chamberlain that I can think since klopp arrived. Solanke from Chelsea doesn't really count.

9.) 11 Feb 2020 04:49:57
I think Lovren will look to leave which will free up one non-HG spot.

10.) 11 Feb 2020 10:11:11
Although he’s had a few more games this season I wouldn’t say he’s first choice at Arsenal yet. There’s still Aubamayang and Lacazette ahead of him when both fit, and they have the other youngster Saka is it?

Not sure how long he has on contract either, but I’d say he would play more than Origi does for us. He’d be potentially leaving a club in transition with no guarantee of CL football to join the current World, European, Super Cup champions and potentially title holders at end of season and also playing for one of the top managers in world football. Personally I think he’d be interested, so an enquiry would be worth the effort.

11.) 11 Feb 2020 16:42:56
Gomez out? For cover? Wtf? The lad is absolutely class. That would be ruthless but I guess you have to be to remain imperious. This is something I both hate and love. Weird.

12.) 11 Feb 2020 19:14:04
Jonesred, Martinelli is a very promising young player who is showing his quality but he still has a lot to prove before a) Dislodging Laca and Auba and b) Get anywhere near being the first option off the bench at LFC esp. since Minamino and Origi are already here,

I also disagree that Martinelli would play more than Origi cos simply put, Martinelli is yet to prove himself at the highest level (PL and CL) the same way Origi has. Also, Origi plays where he is told to play. He can play wide (IMO, not his best position) or CF and scores goals playing either position regardless of the opposition. Au contraire, Martinelli is yet to show he can play either role and score goals from either role. Also, Klopp rates Origi very highly cos if he did not, Origi would have been long gone. So for me, we have enuff cover with Origi and Minamino so Martinelli is not needed.

13.) 11 Feb 2020 23:06:31
Origi is a confidence player. The more he plays the more he scores, unfortunately he isn't getting the game time. I feel for him. What more can he do? Wins us the champions league and still plays behind Bobby. Martinelli looks great but I wouldn't swap him for origi. Not in a million years. Origi is a power house. Who would walk into most teams in our league. Probably 18 of them.

I quite like origi out wide. He can cut in and I think he's probably the gest finisher of the four/ five forwards in the squad. Mane's pretty good but I'd have div just in front. Good in the middle too. Just a great player to have. Defenders must weep inside when they're tired and see big origi stretching on the sideline.



25 Jan 2020 09:39:54
I think Martinelli of Arsenal would be a great buy for us. Unlikely admittedly but looks a real talent, relatively low wages and at a great age.

Plays across the front three positions and would settle with our Brazilian contingent.


1.) 25 Jan 2020 10:55:53
I watched him play for Arsenal in the Europa league back at the start of the season (he scored twice) and the next day I told my Arsenal supporting work colleague he was the closest I'd seen to Fernando Torres (Liverpool version) since the man himself. The pace, the balance, the willingness to run the channels, run in behind, win headers, battle with defenders, go past players. He us a complete forward.

For me he is the best teenager in world football. If we signed him I'd be ecstatic.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 11:06:38
OP, Minamino is just as talented and can do exactly what Martinelli is doing now and is older and more experienced in Europe and in the CL so IMO, he would not be needed.

{Ed025's Note - for me minamino is a bit lightweight for the prem, he could prove me wrong fabinho and henderson..

3.) 25 Jan 2020 11:42:12
I still think that there’s room for an AM in our squad.
We do play that way occasionally (tthe set-up described by PB above, see Wolves the other night) and I think it’s a system that Klopp would turn to more regularly with the right AM. In fact, if Coutinho had stayed, that would have been our main style.
It’s a role that maybe Keita, Ox or Minamino could fill and I also think that Bobby could play very successfully there with a quick man ahead of him. Again, see the other night- Bobby was withdrawn to an AM and Salah went CF.

All in all, we have to develop that system better. We’ve become a very flexible, all-round team able to adapt to challenges but that AM system can be improved imo.

4.) 25 Jan 2020 14:37:34
There's room for both Minamino and Martinelli. If we go by what Klopp said at the pressie, Minamino is best between the lines and channels. Martinelli seems to be ideally suited to play CF. And I'm biased towards Brazilians. 🤷‍♂️.

{Ed047's Note - You’re not getting Martinelli so you can forget that! 🤣😉

5.) 25 Jan 2020 15:19:27
Craving over other teens while we should going all out to see our own getting a bit of footie. Both rumour and page are flooding with tons of other prospects we should be signing. Are we starting to finally agree with the what Ed said about Liverpool not being a team to develop and push through it's own young lot? Is the Arsenal kid any better than Elliot by that much that he should already be replacing him? We might be well positioned to win silver but somethings could be improved.

6.) 25 Jan 2020 15:21:54
Klopp loves him, described him as a “generational talent” after the 5-5 this year.

7.) 25 Jan 2020 12:23:30
To be fair Ed0025 your best player is 4 stone in weight 😉.

{Ed025's Note - but bernard has inner strength jimmy, minamino looks like he needs a good pan of scouse down him mate.. :)

8.) 25 Jan 2020 13:32:09
ed025 he could prove you wrong like all the everton signing you thought where good lol.

{Ed025's Note - my track record is not very good grino i agree, unfortunately my heart rules my head when it comes to everton mate..

9.) 25 Jan 2020 14:24:31
Ed025 are you say that Henderson has proved you wrong😱.

{Ed025's Note - im becoming a big fan of his lately barry, i always thought he was a bit of a turkey with all that sideways and backward passing he used to do, but fair play to him mate he has stepped up his game and has become very important to the team..

10.) 25 Jan 2020 15:56:36
Ed25, and you drew that conclusion from watching his debut? I know patience is alien to you BUT try it sometimes. It works. FYI, Minamino was not lightweight when he played LFC in the CL this season cos he caused us a bunch of probs in both games so don't know where you got this "lightweight" notion from esp. since that Wolves game was his first game in the PL.

Also clearly, he is not fit cos he has not played football for a while before joining us so he will need time to get up to speed. IMO, we will not see the best of "Mino" till next season when he has had a full preseason with us.

{Ed025's Note - i have seen him play quite a few games actually and as i stated its just an opinion..

11.) 25 Jan 2020 16:16:46
Ed25, no problem with that. We will see what happens.

At least you can admit you was wrong Ed! I lambasted you about Fabinho and I’d say he’s the worlds best cdm on current form.

{Ed025's Note - hes been excellent lerchy...but lets not go overboard mate..

Name me better in his position. And please not Andre Gomes!

{Ed025's Note - a squillion miles..

I’d say kante is more box to box but I’ll let you have it. It’s not fair winning everything all the time.

{Ed025's Note - how magnanamous of you lerchy.. :)

He'll be fine for us, taki. Yossi was slight but brilliant. I see no reason why he can't emulate the isreali.

Kante isn’t a DM, Ed025. Superb player, but not the right example to compare to Fabinho.
Kante is also not as good as he was at Leicester and his first two seasons at Chelsea, where he genuinely was one of the best midfielders in the world.

{Ed025's Note - still is imo lowel..

Kante is not a DM and never has been so comparing him to Fab (a true DM) lacks logic cos even at Chelsea, he is NOT the DM there. Jorginho is. Kante plays the Box to Box role there now.

{Ed001's Note - I don't see any comparison with the two. Fabinho is more of a playmaker who sits deep, like a good Jorginho. Kante is all about energy and mobility, though he has been shackled to the right side and wasted over the last few years. He is certainly not a defensive mid. It is my pet hate the way moronic pundits always talk about him as one.}

Just posting to say I've had to sell my seat back for today's game as I'm sick. So if anyone is interested I've just sold back at 11.21.

Good luck.

Hope we win to help you get better quicker Jones!

Have to agree really like Van Der Beek. Think he would suit our system very well. Oh well I trust the club fully still.

Why has the Shaqiri interest faded Ed?


{Ed002's Note - Sevilla signed someone else.}

Thanks Ed

I meant hypothetically on Brandt I realise you mean a slight possibility rather than anything concrete.

Great info from yourself again.

Take care.


{Ed002's Note - Yes. There are players out there who can offer more than Shaqiri and the versatility to cover several positions. Brandt would be one such player.}

I’d say we will likely see some funds from sales of Lovren, Karius, Grujic, Wilson, and Shaqiri off top of head. Lallana and Clyne are free so no money there.

May not be enough to pay for both Brandt and Carlos, if Brandt came would we move on Origi as well? We do have Brewster who could be a sub for the front three but he hasn’t looked ready when he’s been given chance so for me another season at Swansea would be far better for his development.

Would Dortmund have any interest in Grujic?


{Ed002's Note - Brandt is very much a wild card, but a player liked by Klopp. The situation with game time would also be a concern with Brandt so he may have no interest. What he offers is far more flexability than most - certaily more than Rashica. There is no interest from Dortmund in Grujic.}

Must admit, if you said to be by end of window we would see both Diego Carlos and Julian Brandt arrive with Lallana, Lovren, Shaqiri and both Karius and Clyne leaving I would be more than happy with our business. Plus we have Elliot, Jones, and Van Den Berg plus Hoever from the youth side that’s enough.

We also have Keita and Minimino to settle in as well as Brewster.

Yeah Glatzel injured. I think we are playing at Dortmund’s ground too not in Denmark.

For me Kheller to play again for experience. I would also give Minimino a start and Tsimikas.

I think we will want to field some first choice starters.

I’d go with

Williams, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson.

Milner, Gini, Jones.

Mane Firmino, Jota.

If ahead or level at half time make some changes then with Saturday in mind.

Going back further Michael Laudrup for me. What a signing he would have been.

No one knows how serious it is yet so let’s not be doom and gloom. If he’s out for a month we have Fabinho, Matip and Phillips to cover, plus we have Tiago returning so let’s wait and see.

The squad and the manager can deal with this type of thing I have full faith in them.
