Hi Eds, my Lyon FC buddy tells me that LFC are back again but this time it is Amine Gouiri who they coould move for, apparently he is only 19, only played a handful of B team games but had a stella time with France at the under 17's a few years back? Gouiri, Elliot and Brewster the next generation Has any of this news passed through your desk?

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach to Lyon by Liverpool in respect of Armine Gouiri but as a 15 and 16 year old he had the attention of a number of leading sides including Manchester City and Chelsea. A couple of years ago an Arsenal scout (who they stupidly sacked) persuaded Arsene Wenger to look at the kid - and Arsenal tried very hard to strike a deal with Lyon but he eventually signed a professional contract and stayed where he was. Whilst Liverpool continue to have scouts looking at youngsters, Gouiri is of an age now where moving to England would not allow him to be HG and unless he would be first team material then he would be taking up a non-HG place within a year - and that has to be a consideration as well nowadays. Sorry I can’t help.}


1.) 09 Oct 2019 23:23:54
Can't help? that was a tremendous answer.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 10 Oct 2019 06:11:23
Thanks Ed002 - Interesting to see Chelsea as always interested, would have been nice to pick up yet another ex Chelsea player.


 

 

26 Apr 2019 12:37:15
Lewis Dunk rumours are starting again, I think he would be a great addition.

KingCarlos

1.) 26 Apr 2019 15:30:51
I thought we were done with the banter era days? He's not the level of player we should be looking at even as back up.


2.) 26 Apr 2019 17:34:26
Where have you seen these 'rumours'?


3.) 27 Apr 2019 08:27:36
Whether we have actually looked at Dunk or not, people are quick to cast aspersions forgetting that they thought the same thing about Andy Robertson.


 

 

24 Mar 2019 06:44:18
I heard an interesting rumour that Liverpool may be raiding Chelsea again this summer for Jay Dasilva, the young left back who has been loaned out a lot during his time with Chelsea, He is currently on loan at Bristol City and we have had scouts watch Lloyd Kelly. He seems a decent player from what I have seen.

KingCarlos

1.) 24 Mar 2019 11:08:56
I'd take Lloyd Kelly. Covers LB and LCB.
Lets go for Dael Fry as well. Covers RCB and RB.
Allows us to let one of Lovren/ Matip go and upgrades on our current backup fullback options without having to break the bank.
Maybe will give us adequate funds to go out and get someone like Bruno Fernandes (our preferred option for the CAM role) who will no doubt cost a lot of money.


2.) 24 Mar 2019 14:25:02
We already have a young player that covers RB and CB in Hoever. I thought he did well personally when he came on against Wolves in the cup. Gomez isn’t exactly a veteran himself and he also covers RB and CB.


3.) 24 Mar 2019 22:39:01
I can tell you DaSilva will be joining Bristol permanently. They have an option to buy which includes a buy-back for Chelsea and they put this in last summer. The Assistant Manager has confirmed this at least once to BBC Radio Bristol.

{Ed002's Note - If the player doesn't agree it doesn't happen.}


4.) 25 Mar 2019 23:24:28
Interesting you say that Ed002. Judging on DaSilva's comments a few weeks ago, he seemed very happy at Bristol. One to watch for the summer.

{Ed002's Note - Well if Chelsea don’t make a proposal to him he will make the move to Bristol.}

Expect news that Adrien Rabiot will sign for LFC on a free around May 13th.

KingCarlos

1.) 03 Feb 2019 07:00:25
He will sign on may 13 or the news that he will sign will be on may 13 or.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 07:20:22
will or may sign.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 10:03:38
I'll put it in my diary.


4.) 03 Feb 2019 11:32:52
He can't officially become a Liverpool player until 1st July but why would a team delay the announcement until 13th May?


5.) 03 Feb 2019 15:27:33
Guessing he’s said that date as it’s the day after the last premier league game of the season on 12th May.


6.) 03 Feb 2019 19:34:47
Hope it's true.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 20:36:24
Liver_la, it’s not true mate.


8.) 04 Feb 2019 12:07:08
May 13th is hangover day, I won’t be expecting any transfer news that day 👍.


9.) 04 Feb 2019 17:54:35
Day? My high is going to last a week. Maybe an entire month 😎.


10.) 04 Feb 2019 18:13:31
For arsenal?


11.) 04 Feb 2019 23:45:56
we do need a classy midfielder, but this man won't be coming to the premiership,
we will have to look elsewhere .

I expect West Ham to bid for Origi within the next 5 days.

KingCarlos

1.) 18 Jan 2019 11:42:09
I expect to win the lottery tomorrow but there you go.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 13:18:19
The Euromillions is looking quite tasty tonight Salah. I won't win but one can always dream.


3.) 18 Jan 2019 23:56:51
I hope Origi does. He’s been big for us a few times but general attitude is sluggish and no chemistry. I actually think Origi is being held back by our style of play and could progress his career with another team like West Ham. I would say thanks for the drive and on your way lad. All the best.


4.) 19 Jan 2019 00:08:57
If this young kid can keep his head he has the potential to be huge. I wouldn't be surprised if LFC were after him but where they might get the money, who knows. Maybe we could all chip in? :)


5.) 19 Jan 2019 08:12:47
Who are you on about polecat?

Origi is our player.


6.) 19 Jan 2019 09:35:44
Absolute rubbish thatrumour, for two reasons, we would not bid that much for an unproven kid in portugal, and if we had of made that bid, they would of snapped our hands off. Some one not very smart has got to much time on there hands.

{Ed002's Note - They would not snap anyone's hand off at that price - they want much more as they have explained to the interested sides.}


7.) 19 Jan 2019 09:40:08
Hey Ron I would say he was on the wrong tread after all he posted Friday night probable after a few beers and got double vision and posted on this tread instead of the one above. Isn't alcohol GREAT.


8.) 19 Jan 2019 11:29:30
I have a rule not to post when I’m drinking, probably why I’m never on much these days.

I have always preferred Matip on the ball than Lovren, but Matip is starting to finally find his confidence. Those forward runs he makes are the best - you cannot have a defensive strategy for that - hope he does more of it and unleashes a few shots, he may pick up goal of the season.

KingCarlos

 

 

25 Jul 2019 20:29:28
After watching Bruno Fernandes you would be daft not to buy him for 70m Euro if you can get shot of Wilson and Kent for 35m Euro, he is a very different class to those 2 and would cover the front 3 and middle attacking position. Still think we are still interested in him.

KingCarlos

1.) 25 Jul 2019 20:38:16
I would not pay 70 million Euro for a player based on his performance in a pre season friendly.


2.) 25 Jul 2019 20:55:40
I'm with you thunderbird.


3.) 25 Jul 2019 21:11:26
Not basing on the friendly but Fernandes would be a fantastic addition. One I feel that can be the difference for us similar to how silva was for city last year.

I agree he’s an improvement on all of our back up players. That being said, I have no clue on our finance situation and whether he’d be happy for rotation. But I’d happily sell kent, Wilson, lallana and even shaq if it could be used to bring in Fernandes.


4.) 25 Jul 2019 21:44:25
31 goals ( from Midfield ) in 65 appearances.

Pre season or not, you could see his quality last night.


5.) 25 Jul 2019 22:02:08
15 goals (from Midfield) in 119 appearances in Serie A.
I don't watch Portuguese football but i'm sure the quality of the league is lower than England, Italy, Germany and Spain.


6.) 25 Jul 2019 22:03:07
Very impressive drogie, I must admit mate I don't know much about the lad so I can't really have an opinion on him.


7.) 25 Jul 2019 22:16:30
Udinese and Sampdoria are not teams that dominate games or the ball so it's an unfair stat to put him down with imo. He has Grown as a player since then as well.


8.) 25 Jul 2019 22:34:52
King Carlos, Klopp has just said in an interview (and for the upteenth time) that there will be no big signings this season cos we already did that in the last two summers. Also, say we or another team would be daft to not sign him, is a very myopic way of looking at things. I have not seen him play hence, have no opinion of him. But if only Utd are in for him then it tells me that teams are prolly staying away cos he may not be worth it. I don't know n by the way, we cannot be interested in every player just cos you or I like him.


9.) 26 Jul 2019 06:50:49
He’ also predominantly a central midfielder, but was deployed as a centre forward, an offensive midfielder, and a wide player on both flanks last season.

He is a very good player.

further to my post of an ALM coming in to make the attack ALM + Firmino in the 10, Salah on the Right and Mane in the 9 would anyone consider Vardy in the 9, Mane on the left, Salah on the Right and Firmino in the 10? I quite like Vardy.

KingCarlos

1.) 05 Mar 2019 10:05:52
Vardy only fits under counter attack. Put the ball behind the defender and he will run.
Unfortunately we don’t play that way!


2.) 05 Mar 2019 10:08:14
Vardy? You are on the wind up surely 😂 he's an unprofessional, arrogant and marginally above average player who is now in his 30's! His all round game is nowhere near good enough for us.


3.) 05 Mar 2019 10:55:41
King, Vardy is everything MK described him to be so why you like Vardy, I have no idea.


4.) 05 Mar 2019 11:51:57
So that's a no MK, 😂.


5.) 05 Mar 2019 12:29:04
Oliver Hardy would be better than vardy!


6.) 05 Mar 2019 13:22:44
McGovern, he literally admitted to preparing for games for Vodka and red bull 😂 I'd rather re-sign a 15 stone Robbie Fowler.


 

 

22 Feb 2019 23:24:26
This is GREAT NEWS - I AM A BIG FAN of the Liverpool Under-18 captain Paul Glatzel. He has signed his first professional contract after scoring 23 times for the youth team this season. Our Striking options are looking good for the future.

KingCarlos

1.) 23 Feb 2019 00:27:41
Let’s hope we’ve got another Fowler on our hands! Can you tell us more about him please? What kind of striker is he?


2.) 23 Feb 2019 00:55:36
I can tell you neither him or Duncan are half the player Jerome sinclair was at that age group and look how he turned out he recently said he failed on loan at Sunderland because of the pressure of playing for such a big club 😂. Fingers crossed but don't get too excited this is what ruins them we get hyperbole over: coady, wisdom, Kelly, flanno, texiera, Smith, mclaughlin, Morgan, ibe, ojo, trickett Smith, sinclair, yesil, rossiter, juanma, gallacher etc etc etc the list goes on for days. If one of the current crop: glatezl, Duncan, tagseth, Lewis, larucci, neco Williams, sharrif plus the likes of Wilson, Woodburn, Kent and ejaria makes 50 appearances for the first team then that's a job well done for the academy but you're truely naive if you belive that one day we might see Duncan and glatezl both in the first 11 at any point. Especially as strikers are the players that most often fail to make it. Brewster if not hampered by his injury has a slight chance and he was an exceptionally talented lad with unbelievable confidence at the peak of his powers when he got injured but what's he like now with no confidence? Will he get it back quickly or will he take 15 games to score his next goal? Your guess is as good as mine on that one. But there will always be a best player in every position in our academy and that player even if he's only average by last year's standards will be the one that's hyped up.

{Ed001's Note - hype is not what ruins them, it is that they simply did not have the right attitude. More of a problem is the academy system itself, which hands everything to them on a plate and they never learn how to battle for what they want. Instead it is just given to them. Then they get to 18 and they are asked to fight for a first team place, most just carry on as they are and so never make it.}


3.) 23 Feb 2019 02:56:41
Very hard working lad who likes to drift to both flanks or drop deep, unselfish striker who likes to brings others into play with nice touches, lay offs or decisive passes and has quick feet. For an 18 year old he looks quite strong and his link up play with Bobby Duncan and can score as well, I am thinking he would make a good Firmino understudy.


4.) 23 Feb 2019 04:32:08
Excellent analysis run, it is far too early to say yet and as edd says mentality is everything in any game. One thing i must say though i think this is the best crop of youngsters we have had since the 90s and we have one of the best youth development managers in the game. To think where we are right now I have to pinch myself and im enjoying every moment of supporting our mighty club.


5.) 23 Feb 2019 09:32:05
Ed 001 I've heard Gerrard being given a lot of stick on here for putting results 1st with the youths but was he not trying to push them and not give them everything on a plate? Surely trying to get them used to fighting for a league he was teaching them more than giving them a pat on the back no matter the result? if the technical work the kids need is being done while at the same time instilling that hunger is that not the best of both worlds? I could be wrong, I don't know the ins and outs of his time at the Acadamemy but I have to say I always liked the way results actually seemed to matter when he was there and the kids seemed to enjoy it too.

{Ed001's Note - that is nothing to do with this at all. You are talking about a completely different thing and making no sense whatsoever.}


6.) 23 Feb 2019 10:10:05
Was just asking a question Ed, guess I was just wondering if the whole "the performance is more important than the result"attitude is good for the kids and does it prepare them properly for professional men's football?

{Ed001's Note - it is a totally different thing though and totally unrelated to having brand new boots and not having to do things like sweep the stands and paint the stadium etc.

The performance is everything does not work at any level. The best teams want to win, they go out to win but they do not live or die by the results. They go out there and perform because they want to, not because they have to.

That is why repetition was such a big part of martial arts, so that when your life depends on it, you are doing it out of instinct rather than acting out of fear. It is the same with modern surgeons, mistakes are to learn from, not to end your career because of.

Kids need that exact same environment around them. Otherwise what happens is that they become afraid of trying new things. The reason why it was different in the past is because kids had years of playing hours a day in the playground, in the streets, in parks etc to try new things. Nowadays they are in an academy with no freedom to play elsewhere in the main and pressure to perform or they won't be kept on for the following year. It is a crap system set up by people with no idea of how to bring the best out of people.}


7.) 23 Feb 2019 10:58:34
Perfectly put, Ed001.
Same passage could describe a lot of other areas of modern life. “Do it perfectly this way now or you’re out”.

{Ed001's Note - it was brought home starkly while researching the Iraqi national team under Uday Hussein. He tried to drive the players on through fear and it had quite the opposite effect.}


8.) 23 Feb 2019 13:16:27
Of the recent academy players, I think Kelly is unfortunate with his injuries. Otherwise we might have another good players in our IMO. Is any club has the answer for this kind of problems of some youth products Ed001?. There are some very good prospects whose progress is stopped with injuries.

{Ed001's Note - there is nothing much that can be done, legally, to stop injuries, other than not letting them take part in matches or training at all. It is just one of those things.}


9.) 23 Feb 2019 17:07:40
Cheers Ed001. I was really expecting Kelly to step up.

{Ed001's Note - he certainly looked the part before injuries caught up with him. He has been fragile at Palace too.}


10.) 24 Feb 2019 20:35:39
I played off the bench for a couple of seasons in the old NSL in aus. My first job was to carry all the bags for senior players on and off the coach and to help the ground staff to Mark out the pitch. When I made my debut the only thought in my head was that it was a privilege and I didn't want to let anyone down. If one that was still the case.

I look at how the red devils have thrown Rashford in at a young age and now Mason Greenwood and let's see how those 2 turn out, Rashford is hardly living up to his potential and whilst Greenwood is highly regarded, they could end up destroying him. How can an 18 year old Duncan seriously expect to get ahead of Mane, Firmino, Salah, Origi, Shaqiri and Brewster well he could potentially give Brewster a run for his money as he has yet to get an opportunity.

The best he could hope for is a place on the bench for the Carabao Cup / FA Cup and maybe a bench appearance during the very busy months of December and January. If its true that Duncan is being an arse I hope he regrets what could have been (plenty of medals in this team), this young generation of players at the club could be the next big thing in 4 years time, I am looking at VD Berg, Hoever, Elliot, Jones, Woodburn, Arroyo, Glatzel, Larouci, and Brewster and you can add in Gomez and TAA as they will be in their prime.

I hope Stevie G has a word in his ear, a loan to Scottish football would set him straight . I would not want to be playing in Aberdeen on a mid week night in January!

I hate this comment, "Ultimately, just after Christmas was when we dropped points to let City back in."

We scored 97 points last year and we were very lucky in some games, remember the penalty miss City had at Anfield or Origi's goal against the bluenoses? We just lost the league to probably the best ever premier league side and manager in history.

Jezza kyle - seriously we have spent a lot lately, Klopp's net spend over 3 and a helf years is about 100m - I doubt FFP is to blame for what we have not spent. Now all these new contracts we have handed out may be a factor but not our spending on new talent.
