Hi Ed’s

I know there has been mentions of a reduction in sales and more loan deals. With the impending restrictions of how many senior players you are allowed out on loan.

Do you think this will push the prices down further?

Chelsea, city, Watford to name a few have way more senior players out on loan than what they will he allowed.

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - There are no limits to the number of players that can go out on loan - the usual summer cull of players who could be released will give a better indication of where it will head. Prices will drop which then leads to fewer players moving. I don't understand your last sentence, sorry.}


1.) 23 May 2020 21:36:51
Apologies Ed’s I thought that the 20/ 21 season they were implementing regulation to limit players out on loan.

I was using those clubs as examples who have significant numbers out on loan.

{Ed002's Note - OK. I think you misunderstand. The limit only relates to non HG over 21.}


 

 

19 May 2020 13:08:18
With the recurring comments around HG issues, I know it has been mentioned we are looking at white as a CB.

But are there any other HG talent we are looking at?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Yes but not in respect of likely candidates for this summer. At present one non HG spot remains for the squad, but it will be eased by the likely departures of Lovren and Shaqiri.}


 

 

09 May 2020 12:14:52
Looks Like Chirivella is off to Nantes on a free transfer, good luck to the fella!

Never complained just put his head down and worked hard to earn a place and a quality game for Liverpool U23’s vs Everton.

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Good move for the lad, but another HG gone.}


1.) 09 May 2020 14:33:14
How bad is our HG situation Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Close to the edge.}


2.) 09 May 2020 16:43:42
This has to go to go down as one of those that got away. Totally loved him a player. Good luck to him and his family.


3.) 10 May 2020 09:07:40
Plus Wilson and Lallana will be leaving too. Hopefully we go for Ben White who would provide much needed back up and also be HG.


4.) 10 May 2020 13:51:48
Each squad needs 8 HG players in the 25 or you must reduce the number of players registered if you don't have enough eg if you only have 7 you can only register 24 players.

LFC Have the following -

Trent
Gomez
Lallana - likely to leave
Milner
Ox
Clyne - likely to leave
Harry Wilson - Could Leave
Andy Lonergan
Ojo - Likely to leave
Kelleher
Phillips - Likely to leave
Grabara - on loan
Ejaria - on loan


Player not 21 yet who will qualify when they are 21

Brewster
Woodburn
Hoover
Williams
Jones
Van der Berg
Elliot
Larouci
Lewis

Some time away

Jaros
Williams cb
Glatzel
Cain.

{Ed002's Note - Try doing it the other way around - there is a maximum of 17 non HG players. Right now the club has 16.}


5.) 10 May 2020 14:27:15
True Ed2 its something that has been an issue in the PL for some time, i believe there is talk of a reduction to 13 none HG post brexit aswell.

Something a lot of clubs need to look at.

{Ed002's Note - The EPL rules are a max of 25 players over 21 of which a max of 17 can be non-Home Grown). The remaining eight have to be HG (spending 3 years between 16 and 21 with an English or Welsh side, regardless of nationality). If there are not enough HG players, then the squad size reduces, so if there are only six, the squad reduces to 23. In terms of UEFA competitions, the rules vary slightly with the eight "HG". A maximum of four of those eight can be trained by other clubs in the English and Welsh association. The remaining have to be club trained. So If Arsenal were to recruit Mason Mount, he would fall in to the category of being association trained (by Chelsea) rather than club trained. Again, if there are not sufficient club trained players the squad size is reduced.

Right now Liverpool has the following 16 non-HG players:
Adrian
Alisson
Andrew Robertson
Dejan Lovren
Divock Origi
Fabinho
Georginio Wijnaldum
Joel Matip
Loris Karius
Mohamed Salah
Naby Keïta
Roberto Firmino
Sadio Mane
Takumi Minamino
Virgil van Dijk
Xherdan Shaqiri

So this influences purchases.

In terms of pure numbers (and putting aside less major leagues such as Scotland, the Championship, Cyprus and Luxembourg), the Premier League is some distance ahead of the main protagonists in Europe. Right now England has around 70% foreign players with Portugal, Belgium and Italy all around 50% to 55% and Russia, Spain, the Netherlands and France all around the 40% give or take. You would need to check the exact figures with the CIES Football Observatory reports which come out with boring statistics all too often - try not to read too much in to any you stumble across. The reasons behind this include (but are not limited to): (a) There is far more money in the Premier League so clubs can cherry pick players from around the world. (b) The Premier League is attractive because of the profile and media coverage. (c) English clubs often price English players out of a move to other English sides. (d) European sides (e.g. Italy) have to work with in a far more demanding quota system. (e) Some countries have the benefit of agreements (e.g. Spain which has the Cotonou Agreement where African and Caribbean players are not counted against non-EU quotas) that are beneficial to clubs. (f) Some countries have quotas which are game based rather than squad based (e.g. Ukraine limits non homegrown players on the pitch to seven etc.). (g) Some countries have clubs that realise players from their home nation most suit the type of game played in that country and there are benefits in terms of moving players between clubs - as opposed to taking a youngster out of his comfort zone of sunny South America to move to the grim, wet and cobbled streets Northwest of England where there would be a significant cultural change, smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street, little chance of football at the highest level and only chips and fried curry to eat.

There have been two recent attempts by the FA to reduce the number of non HG to 13 as you say - on both occasions it has been voted down by the Premier League - but changes are expected at some point.}


6.) 10 May 2020 14:47:21
Thanks for the detailed info Ed2.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


7.) 10 May 2020 15:16:50
That was brilliant thanks ed are we expecting for some non HG players to leave in the next window likes of karius adrian and shaqiri?

{Ed002's Note - Karius and Lovren and probably Shaqiri (who might be used in part exchange with Sevilla).


8.) 10 May 2020 17:59:50
Assume that's in relation to DC ed2, the shaq line that is.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


9.) 12 May 2020 14:56:28
awesome reply Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


10.) 13 May 2020 08:16:37
Does the problem lie with how academies work with kids in Britain and train them, like for example Spain and Italy seem to produce more technical players etc, would Britain be better to focus on academies and how they teach players to play from a younger age, with more focus on technical ability rather than trying to produce the best athletes, or have they moved to do this already?

{Ed001's Note - they have been doing that for a while and that is what we are seeing in the current generation of players. However they are producing, in large part, players that have no heart as everything is easy for them. That is the issue. In the main the best sportspeople come from difficult beginnings as it teaches them the value of hard work needed to achieve anything and gives them desire. English people have an easier life than most, which means they are not having to develop that same drive to succeed. That added to a lack of places to play in the streets, away from coaches interference, is leaving it an uphill struggle to produce quality players who actually have that drive to succeed. Which is why most of the better players are having to drop down the divisions first to learn about adversity or are coming from the lower leagues.}


 

 

08 May 2020 10:34:12
Is there any interest in Aster Vranckx?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Aster Vranckx (DM/CM) kiddie who has seemingly got a good future ahead of him but he takes advice from his good young coach, Wouter Vrancken, who has told him to stay and develop and don't look to jumping to any of the senior English, German or French sides who have been scouting him on a regular basis.}


1.) 08 May 2020 14:12:22
Thanks Ed, he looks a decent prospect, but completely agree!

Let the boy play.


 

 

10 Feb 2020 18:18:22
any truth in that Liverpool had a €35m bid for Samuel Chukwueze rejected last month?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool picked up another RW in Minamona last month.}


1.) 10 Feb 2020 18:43:25
Thought it was rubbish but wanted to check!

{Ed002's Note - Unless of course Salah is leaving?}


2.) 11 Feb 2020 23:55:38
Wow if Salah were to leave never heard you say that before!


3.) 12 Feb 2020 21:48:01
yes, if Salah was to leave ha, I don't think so,
in fact I am sure that I saw in the last couple of games, Mo Salah has got his mojo back, watch him score another ten goals or more .

Looks like Rhys Williams season is over now, have always thought he was a decent looking player.

interesting route to go down as an 18 year old defender, looks as though he has learnt a lot.

do the club view him highly?

The Southern Red

1.) 24 Apr 2020 13:51:01
Was really impressed with him from the limited game time I have seen of him, enough to wonder if Trent's long term future may indeed be further forward in the coming years.

{Ed001's Note - you might be getting a little confused. That is Neco Williams you are thinking of, not Rhys.}

Kahn-Koulibaily Kompany Van Dijk- Cafu Kante Totti Capdevilla- CR7 Shearer Messi.


5.) 11 Apr 2020 20:27:45
I interpreted the third instruction as meaning the player couldn't still be playing, hence no Salah, van Dijk, Messi or Ronaldo.


6.) 12 Apr 2020 00:35:40
Chilavert
Zanetti, Kompany, Hyppia, Maldini
Le Tissier, Viera, Keane, Simao
Romario, Drogba

I think that qualifies but Gauranga that was tough.


7.) 12 Apr 2020 00:42:00

Going to be an interesting summer, lots of the old guard heading out freeing up quite a lot of wage bill. Given our recent spike will be good to get these guys off for new players.

Likely to lose Lallana, Lovren, Clyne, Shaqiri, which is over £350k pw!

The Southern Red

1.) 09 Mar 2020 13:30:15
Personally can't see Chelsea or United being near us next season either. They've both hit a purple patch an people get carried away, just like when we went from the best team in the world to the wheels are falling off after a couple of bad results.

Of course a lot can change in football but a lot depends on city, do they stick or twist with Pep, who do they bring in and sell as to whether we have a challenge next season.


2.) 09 Mar 2020 14:12:54
Apologies my original post was meant for the thread above 🤦‍♂️

I'd be more than happy with Jones, Williams and Elliot replacing lallana, Clyne and Shaqiri as the impact they have had this season has been minimal unfortunately.


3.) 09 Mar 2020 17:21:11
Good thing about United's current purple patch is that it probably keeps Ole in the job for another season 😁.


 

 

21 Feb 2020 13:03:47
Hi Ed’s,

Just wanted to ask your view of the new training ground. Where do you think it will stand against the other teams in the Prem?

Are you impressed with it?

And finally I know Leicester are also building a new training ground, but it’s costing almost twice as much, other the land is there anything that they are doing differently/ better?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I am just sad about losing Melwood, spent a lot of time there. However the upgrade is needed and it will put us on a par with the best of the rest.

The land will be almost the entire difference mate. Other than that, it is difficult to know as I haven't really looked into it. I would need to find out.}


1.) 21 Feb 2020 22:59:17
Can I ask what took you to melwood ed01.

{Ed001's Note - depends on which time you mean? A couple of times with college when I was studying horticulture. }


 

 

16 Feb 2020 10:39:44
Ed i know that there has been a lot of posts on fridays news, but what re your views of any potential league title being stripped from city?

do you agree with this? and do you think it should just be a year with no winner or handed to second place.

whilst it can be seen as unfair being beaten by a team who have cheated to win, i wouldn't want to be handed a title by default.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I can understand the thinking of stripping them, I think they should just to deter others from cheating, if they are found guilty of course. However I don't agree with just giving them to others. It wouldn't feel like it was won fair and square.}


1.) 16 Feb 2020 11:16:24
similar to the Astros cheating scandal, they should strip them off their titles and vacate them.

{Ed025's Note - and award them to liverpool i suppose faith, then the great stevie G can claim that elusive title winning medal he always wanted....wheres that bleedin sick bucket?.. :)


2.) 16 Feb 2020 11:16:39
Didn’t inter Milan get a few titles given to them after Juventus were stripped? Part of me would like the titles but forever more manu fans would be singing that we never won them.


3.) 16 Feb 2020 11:28:19
I think they should be stripped of the titles they won while cheating, seems only fair.
Then the second placed teams should be declared champions for them years. It would be nothing to celebrate though of course.
I seem to remember similar happening years ago in Italy when a few teams where found out to be cheating and got titles stripped.

{Ed025's Note - i need another sick bucket...and a big one now..


4.) 16 Feb 2020 11:33:33
I was literally going to type the same question Southern . I think Juve had thier titles stripped when they were punished for different reasons and they were handed to the second place teams. I agree totally with Ed001 though, I wouldn't want Liverpool to be handed the 2014 title, I would just erase it and say no over all winner. there's no honour in winning a title because the team above you was deemed to have broken rules. And not the players who played the games mind, the people that ran the club.


5.) 16 Feb 2020 11:37:22
Should just go down as no winner imo. You can’t celebrate it and it would be tarnished as winning by default.


6.) 16 Feb 2020 11:46:52
I can’t see there is a point in it they celebrated winning it it’s all over now it’s just goes on the record but they joy of winning is not there. Saying that drugs cheats at the olympics can lose there gold medals years later as cheating is cheating but I would not want the title like that us fans would get more stick for claiming that than chucking one away.

{Ed002's Note - So if they opened up all of Liverpool's past transgressions and the payments made to other clubs and one individual from the slush fund, you would be happy with that?}


7.) 16 Feb 2020 12:20:34
Personally, I want absolutely nothing to do with City's 2014 title should they be stripped of it. We should have won the title that year and we have only ourselves to blame for that.


8.) 16 Feb 2020 12:57:21
I get what some of you are saying but the thought of us doing a treble of league titles in one year is too funny to pass up.


9.) 16 Feb 2020 13:20:36
I would feel sick too, that BR is the 1st Liverpool manager to win the PL via some arbitrary means.

Strip city of the title, sure, if that is what the authorities decide. And just leave it as that. Won’t want some arbitrary means of winning it.


10.) 16 Feb 2020 14:31:44
I think it would be pretty classless to strip the City players of the title, in reality they earned it by playing the best football that season. A European ban on the other hand makes sense, no Champs league and a couple of their better players potentially leaving is punishment enough.


11.) 16 Feb 2020 13:55:47
Wouldn't want any of those titles and I don't want them banned. They will be able to focus on league.


12.) 16 Feb 2020 15:06:49
I'd still take it, the league that is. If they cheated to beat us then it's only fair that we get the title. I wouldn't complain if it was the other way around (well I probably would a bit, but) I remember Linford Christine's Olympic bronze getting upgraded to silver and it felt like justice.


13.) 16 Feb 2020 17:10:35
Think athletics is different in that it’s the individual who cheats, none of the city players did and were the best over 38 games.


14.) 16 Feb 2020 17:24:42
A good point wyred.


15.) 16 Feb 2020 16:37:17
ed002 am sure I said I would not want the league like that for me once is gone its gone. this year is a joy to watch to win the league and it would have been back then but we did not so its over.

{Ed002's Note - The issue is about opening old woulds.}


16.) 16 Feb 2020 22:47:03
If it happens and we get the 2014 title (I really can't see that happening) I personally wouldn't count it or celebrate it.


17.) 16 Feb 2020 23:03:53
I can’t believe some are saying we should be given titles. Regardless of what the club have done financially it’s 11 blokes against 11 blokes and they were better than us. We earned nothing so we should get nothing.

By all means punish them if they have to but you can’t reward us for ultimately finishing second! It would put us level with Utd on 20 titles but we didn’t actually win 2 of them? Nah, you can’t be doing that it’s ridiculous!


18.) 16 Feb 2020 11:59:18
Ed025 love your banter mate. I’d probably keep that bucket though as Everton seem to be in the same boat as City and that boat is sinking quickly. You might need that bucket to scoop all the water out 😂.

{Ed025's Note - love it JK..


19.) 16 Feb 2020 22:36:27
25, you'll drown yourself alive with that bitter juice you sipping mate lol I said vacate, that just means strip their name from the record books and leave it at that. Don't award to the second place team. I rekon that's naff.

{Ed025's Note - i dont get FFP at all faith, the best team wins the league and thats it, so man city have spent more money than the rest...so what!, if i can afford a nicer car than my neighbour then whats wrong with that?, its just jealousy in my book mate..


20.) 17 Feb 2020 04:21:34
If the game is simply 11 blokes vs 11 blokes regardless of what’s done financially then why even have FFP? It appears City had an unfair advantage that year so strip them of the title.


21.) 17 Feb 2020 09:11:00
Why should we not get the 2014 title if they are stripped of it? they got it by cheating. They paid transfer fees for players that played that season by cheating while FSG stayed within rules.

Its only fair we get the title, rules are explained to everyone.

Fernandinho 40 million euros
Navas 20 million euros
Negredo 24 million euros

Just to name a few.

They would probably not win the title if they were not able to get those players any a few before them.

{Ed001's Note - they might not have but they also might well have won it. Unless it is match fixing that has been found, I don't see why titles should be stripped.}


22.) 17 Feb 2020 23:29:51
I don't think they should be stripped of the titles, however of they are found guilty they do need to be punished.
What about point deductions for future seasons or them be relegated. Are they viable options?

{Ed002's Note - The PL will need to be very careful about what the decide to do and how far they are prepared to go. They will discuss the potential can of worms and don’t forget they could end up with all clubs voting. They have no evidence to look at and what evidence there is relates to UEFA and not the PL. If they were to extrapolate the findings of UEFA (which could go on for a long time before confirmed post appeal and could have a crippling impact on UEFA and hasten a breakaway - even if it ends up being FIFA run, then they are open to major issues going forward.}

Whilst it is always good to add competition, we shouldn’t spend a large sum to bring in another top CB.

Gomez has shown time and time again that he has the capabilities to be a top class player.

I think he has a future at Liverpool, he just needs to be patient and learn to play a number of roles in the forward line.

This virus maybe a blessing in disguise for him as we may hold back on buying a new forward.

i would absolutely love him at Liverpool, can play across the front line, be the link between midfield and attack very technical.

only 20 got plenty of experience at top level already, both a creator and a goalscoring threat. I think Klopp could turn him into a world class player.

Reality we won't sign him, it is very doubtful that we would go for someone at his price regardless of his talents.

{Ed002's Note - No, they have a bunch of younger players they have been looking at because of Sancho and some offer up opportunities for other positions.}

Thanks Ed do you think he is an upgrade to Gomez? Or is it more having another top player in that position given we are likely to lose Lovren.

{Ed002's Note - He has a very good reputation and would be a starter.}

Thanks Ed, still hoping he can offer something for us one day.

Although I don’t remember requesting this?

{Ed001's Note - it was a long time ago. I have a lot of profiles to catch up on. Trouble is most of them are of players I have not seen enough of to write it, so they take a while as I have to watch a few games.}
