Friend from madrid tells me mane is priority for them.
Couldnt answer why though.
Surely athletico cannot spend anymore :)

akshit

1.) 03 Jul 2019 07:40:39
This is laughable. Surely a athletico isn't a bigger club.


2.) 03 Jul 2019 08:44:08
Not sure you're getting it tobi.


3.) 03 Jul 2019 09:24:39
Amount of Money Madrid have already spent and still (allegedly) after Pogba. can't see it.


4.) 03 Jul 2019 09:56:08
Atletico ^^^.


5.) 03 Jul 2019 16:28:28
Madrid (Real not the smaller club down the road) . seems to be able to spend whatever and however much they like . won't be surprised if they spent another 200m on Pogba or similar and other players . Not sure how they stay within FFP rules.


6.) 03 Jul 2019 17:45:06
Isnt ffp a three year weekend period? I imagine losing ronaldo means they have funds to spend so to speak.


7.) 03 Jul 2019 20:42:48
Why are people still fussing about FFP and money. Just forget about money. No wonder the Eds are fed up explaining themselves that they do not want to discuss finances as majority on here including myself have no idea about how transfer fees really get laid out.


8.) 06 Jul 2019 08:58:59
OP ids that the same friend who knows a friend in the Spanish media who has been touting Mane's name since we played RM in the CL? Cos if it is, he is pulling your leg. Mane to Madrid ain't happening. As Ed02 always says, "Your friend is teasing you".

Hi ed001, Has ejaria gone on loan to reading? i friend told me he failed the medical, i couldn't find any such news.

akshit

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about any failed medical, not even sure he was to have one, but he is now registered as a loan player with Reading.}


1.) 09 Jan 2019 08:52:34
Thanks for the reply ed. don't think he has a future a LFC after the rangers saga. Shame as i feel he was doing pretty well for himself at rangers playing wise. let's see if he can redeem it at reading.

{Ed001's Note - he was abysmal at Rangers. He never had a future before then and he certainly doesn't after his lazy efforts there. I am going to have to assume you never saw him play for Rangers if you feel he was doing well there.}


2.) 09 Jan 2019 09:47:46
NO i didn't see it, just heard gerrard saying he is doing well in one of the interviews when he scored a goal for them.

Hello eds, any interest in Luca torreira of Sampdoria from Liverpool?

akshit

{Ed002's Note - Everton were the Merseyside team who enquired about Lucas Torreira - not Liverpool.}


1.) 22 Feb 2018 15:32:15
Is he considered by Napoli as a replacement for Jorginho?


2.) 23 Feb 2018 05:00:11
I think Luca torriera is the kante of Serie A. Beastly little dynamite of a player. But of course as Ed002 has cleared it was everton and not us who enquired.
Would love him at LFC though.


 

 

05 Dec 2017 06:45:28
hi eds,
anything in the aubameyang rumours?
reading reports LFC could well sell studger, origi and ings and go for him?
if we sell all three doesn't sound bad but his wages might probably cut off any deal.

akshit

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund are willing to let Aubameyangadingdong go as they are sick of the backage. He has been offered to a couple of clubs and Liverpool might well be interested - but someone would need to make way from the first team - not the players you have listed. It is reasonable that Ings could get a loan and Origi may well want to stay in Germany in the summer. Aubameyangadingdong has been offered to an English side and an Italian side already. The Italian side see the price as high for the risk of disruption, and they are currently in turmoil. The English side is looking at someone else initially. Sturridge I don't know. But none of these are really starters. I would not rule it out but I am not aware of any approach.}


1.) 05 Dec 2017 10:33:21
So sell three hard working squad players and sign a disruptive flake who will want to start ahead of our front 3? And that too for an obscene amount of money? No chance unless Salah leaves in the summer.


2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:36:32
Ed when you say someone would need to leave mate I take it would have to be the likes of Firmino, Couts, Mane etc?

{Ed002's Note - He would want to be a starter - so go figure.}


3.) 05 Dec 2017 10:48:27
A 4-2-3-1 with Mane, Firmino and Salah behind Aubameyang would be incredible. Don’t think it would be my priority though as the defence must be our first thought and with the goals we’re scoring is it really worth the disruption?


4.) 05 Dec 2017 11:20:29
If our "Transfer Committee" have half a brain between them they'll leave well alone but I'm not sure they have the half of a brain.


5.) 05 Dec 2017 11:57:40
Only way I’d see it possible for PEA to be in the first team would be to drop bobby into coutinho role once he’s on that plane to Barcelona.


6.) 05 Dec 2017 12:00:19
Yeah right. wasnt Sadio Mane also seen as disruptive? He had prior disciplinary issue with Koeman. Looks what happen. We are not talking about some random striker. We are talking about most prolific striker last season in whole Europe. He is in bracket Lewandowski, Suarez, Kane. So please wise up and talk sense when you guys write as if he is another striker like Balloteli.


7.) 05 Dec 2017 12:29:42
There is a difference between a player who is disruptive because he doesn't fully apply himself and it gets on people's nerves, and one who just sacks off full games cause he wants to go out on the lash with his mates. He is more of a problem for squads than balotelli is, that's why he's discussed like balotelli by anyone who knows the first thing about him.


8.) 05 Dec 2017 13:37:36
Bottom line is klopp knows him. If he wants to sign him he will have confidence that can manage any issues and find a place for him in the starting 11. If he is a disruptive force surely Klopp will let it be known to the transfer folks to stay away. Nothing to worry about at all folks.


9.) 05 Dec 2017 13:46:31
Ed002 mate. which clubs (to the best of your knowledge) are currently showing any interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - See above - I have said that they have spoken to a couple of clubs - and that is it at the moment.}


10.) 05 Dec 2017 14:04:56
I was at the recent Dortmund v Bayern game and kept a beady eye on Aubameyang as i was keen to see how good he was. What a let down. He was a passenger for the whole game and did nothing, with Robben stealing the show. Admittedly, this is a single game, against Bayern and i had been sampling the local beers for most of the day, but from that showing, i wouldn't want him. On a side note, 83,503 people singing you'll never walk alone is truly a wonderful experience. especially with beer.


11.) 05 Dec 2017 18:28:20
Ed is there any truth that where looking for a striker Bec firmino is guna play coutino role when he leaves?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for strikers in January. The club is doing just great going forward and I doubt even Klopp would be stupid enough to screw that up right now.}


12.) 05 Dec 2017 19:10:54
Thanks Ed way I’d read it seemed more about summer plans when coutino leaves.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty certain Liverpool are not making plans like that right now.}


13.) 06 Dec 2017 01:43:15
Am I wrong to think this would be a poor move for the club?


 

 

12 Aug 2017 03:27:35
Hi Ed's, a very good morning.
Would Barcelona be willing to include sergi Roberto in a deal for pipco? Is he on the surplus list? More importantly would the forces at liverpool be interested in player+cash kind of deal?
Thank-you for you kindness in this unkind transfer window.

akshit

{Ed002's Note - He is not on the surplus list but the clubs interested in him have had little luck getting Barcelona to talk. Liverpool has shown no interest to date.}


1.) 12 Aug 2017 09:15:07
Pipe dream unfortunately. After Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, Pique and Alba I would say Roberto is probably the next best they have. He is a really classy midfielder and not a bad right back either.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:29:44
I get a feeling that any player on Barca's surplus list to be included in a deal would be an above average yet nothing special player, which makes the whole idea of it unappealing.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:30:45
That team is slim pickings IMO apart from top two and pique.
Maybe Gomes and Ter Stegen + 80million and then we could maybe talk.

I also find it hard to believe that they wouldn't come back.
Real probably will if not as Phil is knocking on the door of best in CAM in world for me. A season in champions league and people start to take seriously.

Question for Ed02: Have Liverpool been aggressive enough in pursuit of players this transfer window? Do you think if we'd have put money where our mouth is we could've got things do for targets?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has gone about the transfers in the entirely wrong way - but it is nothing about money.}


4.) 12 Aug 2017 10:32:18
Did I just read "has Liverpool been aggressive enough this window? "
Only way they could have been more aggressive is if VVD and NK where bundled into the boot of Klopps BMW and driven to Melwood.

{Ed002's Note - He has a KR200 - there is only room for one of them.
https://twitter.com/WonderDogSparky/status/696334510737203200 }


5.) 12 Aug 2017 10:41:17
Should have looked outside the club for a sporting director promoting from within where a culture of incompetance has been prevelant for years just breeds more err incompetance . we have seen more of the same this transfer window. they should burn that rick parry guide to doing transfers.


6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:39
Why majorly weaken our team selling a player with years of contract when we can keep him, get a good year out of him and sell him for AT LEAST the same price judging by how transfers are rising year by year. its the same as Liepzig (why have no want or need to sell the player and we don't need the money) .


7.) 12 Aug 2017 13:38:16
8;minutes and our defence exposed. We are such a good team, something really needs to be done with our defence. Vvd as soon as. It'll be embarrassing but not as embarrassing as losing to mediocre teams.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 14:03:41
Ed, sorry couldn't find new post icon. Any idea why we didn't move for Joe Hart? It seems mad as we were the only team at the top he could've gone to bar city. He is surely an upgrade on what we currently have.

{Ed001's Note - because he is crap.}


9.) 12 Aug 2017 14:19:53
Totally agree Eds. The only reason he doesn't get called out on his mistakes is 'cause he's English.


10.) 12 Aug 2017 14:22:12
Didn't Torinos owner come out and say he didn't expect an England goalkeeper to make so many mistakes? Says it all really.


11.) 12 Aug 2017 14:44:44
Fair enough guys. I have to disagree with Steve wonder, England gks have had a hard time over last ten years, Carson Robinson and the other fella all made one mistake and we're dropped forever. I have always felt Hart was over rated but rest of country seemed to disagree. Until the euros where he was crap. What Hart does well is organise and control defence and I feel that is what we are lacking. But I buy that he has lost it.


12.) 12 Aug 2017 17:41:24
Nah it seems like he does superred but he just shouts loudly. Literally I think that is his only trick. Shouting and chest thumping.


13.) 12 Aug 2017 19:09:14
Sergi roberto is such a tidy passer, If we were to take him i would want him in CM, not being put as a rb like Barcelona shifted him out. Would still rather keep couts though.


14.) 12 Aug 2017 20:17:49
Dear Jurgen. we're going to take your star player and you can have anyone off our surplus list.

Yeh right!


15.) 12 Aug 2017 22:37:01
Under FSG, we haven't taken any surplus players as part of big money transfers out. I don't know if FSG think the supporters see such a scenario as Liverpool accepting cast-offs, but the sale of Torres, Sterling and Suarez didn't bring back any players from Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona.

I suspect it will be the case this time too. Why should Liverpool buy players who we don't need?


16.) 13 Aug 2017 07:04:17
@ superred91

losing to mediocre teams?

Last time I checked 3-3 was not a losing score line.


17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:28:23
Red, it sure felt like it was a loss .


18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:01:52
Fair point resend but we were losing 2.1 when I wrote that post and wasn't necessarily talking about watford. Was talking about defence in general.

Yeah, again I thought there were tonnes of positives from watford game.


19.) 14 Aug 2017 14:37:46
If Barcelona want coutinio and they want to offer a player or two in the deal then it has to be one of their top players. Next time they offer rahifina we should send em markovic in no 10 shirt. Don't think the part exchange is going to happen is it? Just psper talk. The first two offers were cash.

I think if we were to do a swap it has to be iniesta. If it truly is a iniesta replacement (pc) then we'll take the replaced player. The fact is, they just want the world's best south America players.

I am a bit skeptic about the game against United next week because:
A) we don't play well after a break
B) they were hopeless and needed a break
C) everyone is thinking we will maul them over, which will only add pressure on them to perform.
D) too many young kids on their team to prove something
E) If he loses badly ogs might get sacked
F) we are probably not the most defensively sound this season yet

Although i am sure we can win but I don't think we are walking over them. It has as to be our best performance if we are taking them points at old Trafford.

akshit

1.) 11 Oct 2019 08:56:08
Was thinking pretty much the same thing AK, they always turn up against us and last season still got a draw when Rashford was hobbling about with one foot.


2.) 11 Oct 2019 09:13:45
Derby type games form can go out the window, though in this game I do think we will go there and bring home the 3 points. As long as we match the intensity and effort in the game our quality should hopefully come through and do enough to win. Not normally as confident for a trip to castle greyskull but fully confident in our team.


3.) 11 Oct 2019 09:38:12
They’re team is not good enough in any dept. If we perform we win. They’re not keeping clean sheets and not creating goal scoring opportunities.

Our hardest match was clearly Chelsea at Stamford bridge, Not this game.


4.) 11 Oct 2019 10:21:49
Nah I was very confident with the Chelsea game because chelsea were out to play.
If united score somehow it will 11 players wall we will need to score.
As I said we need to perform in this game at a good level, a level obviously we can play at and should be playing at.
This won't be a stroll.


5.) 11 Oct 2019 10:41:11
I agree akrubbish. feels like a trap game to me.


6.) 11 Oct 2019 11:21:41
Not defensively sound yet have conceded less goals than anyone else. they'll be up for it but if we pkay as we can we win.


7.) 11 Oct 2019 11:52:59
No injuries from international games and we win. Simples.


8.) 11 Oct 2019 12:12:10

Hahaaa.


10.) 11 Oct 2019 14:45:54
We're the much better team, we'll beat them no problem at all, I'm not at all concerned about them I was more worried about Leicester.


11.) 11 Oct 2019 15:51:52
It's the perfect time for us to play United and Spurs with the way they are at the moment. The good thing is that we have been grinding out wins game after game, and that's exactly what we will need to do again, especially at Old Trafford. I am confident that if they do come at us we will beat them by a ridiculous score line, and if they park the bus we will grind out a win just as we have been doing. I honestly don't see United beating us at all, at worst we will come away with a point, but if we want to be a title winning team we really do need to be picking up maximum points against these mid-table teams.


12.) 11 Oct 2019 17:01:13
that's hilarious that it changes his name.


13.) 11 Oct 2019 17:54:03
McGuire vrs Salah (if fit) is a car crash waiting to happen. 😅.


14.) 11 Oct 2019 18:04:28
I swear we get the same posts before every game. Someone warning us not to take our next opponents lightly and how we’ll have to be at our best to win the game. You do realize there aren’t any easy games right?
This team are the European champions and have won 18 league games in a row, they know how to win all sorts of games. What we say on this site has absolutely no bearing on the players performance on a match day.
Stop being so afraid of every other team and just enjoy this magnificent team whilst we can.


15.) 11 Oct 2019 22:36:11
I fully agree with you, Thunderbird 2. Same old stuff before a game as if the players and manager who have been to hell and back with all the blood, guts, tears and battle scars to prove it, still need to be reminded of such things. We all know the Utd game is a trap game where anything can happen. That is pretty much the same for any Prem opponent we face so not bothered cos nothing new is being learned here. so not about any of that, really.

Complacency is not in our team's DNA. Klopp ain't having any of that nonsense. If you are still apprehensive before our boys step on the field then you are overthinking things. we will be ready, no doubt. As they say in boxing, "Just Let your hands go. " We'll be fine and well-prepared. There is nothing to fear BUT fear itself.


16.) 12 Oct 2019 08:46:34
United away is always a tough one, we’ve not won there for a few years now. Whilst they’re not firing on all cylinders, this game will be extremely difficult, they will be out to halt our winning run.

75 million de ligt got walked over by napoli in 10 minutes there.
Just tells you how low defending standards are in todays football.
Just makes me appreciate VVD robbo matip gomez fab and TAA even more.

akshit

1.) 01 Sep 2019 22:04:55
De Ligt is overrated and always has been, IMO. Could he still fulfill his potential? Absolutely BUT I just don't think he is as good as people were/ are raving about him.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 00:48:33
VVD raves about De Ligt and I would guess he is in a very good position to judge . Napoli are a very good team, look far sharper than last year .


3.) 02 Sep 2019 08:35:18
VVD is hardly going to say anything else is he. Whaen asked the question he just says he is a good young player who can improve, he is not going to say his Gran is quicker.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 09:43:20
I agree with your assessment of the current level of defending standard being so poor. Just look at the champions league for example. The top clubs in the world and over the last few years there has hardly been any memorable defensive quality. Last season we had a strong defence for sure but we still lost 3 group games, conceded in every away knockout round and rode our luck with Barcelona at anfield. Every top side was vulnerable to conceding 3 or 4 goals regularly, city vs spurs, ajax vs spurs, LFC vs Barca. Madrid, juve, bayern having a leaky defence as their downfall. The year before psg and Barcelona were conceding for fun, we smash 5 past a hapless Roma but then concede enough goals to give them hope of comeback.

In previous years there were top class defences built with real quality. Atletico Madrid recently, juve with chiellini bonucci buffon in their prime, Chelsea with carvalho Terry cole cech, United with van der sar vidic Ferdinand evra, Milan side with nesta maldini. Bayern even when neuer lahm hummels boeteng in prime.

Today there is no standout world class backline. Huge money is being forked out for defenders now simply because there's such a small number of quality available. World record fees shouldn't be needed to get you a Harry Maguire, wan bissaka, walker, mendy, De ligt, Hernandez level of player.

It's a part of the game that is rapidly declining. In England all the top clubs had a vidic, Terry, carragher, kompany etc as top performing strong leaders. Today's standard has Chelsea, arsenal, spurs, United not capable of keeping clean sheets to lesser sides while us and city having the strongest defences still don't look regularly solid. Juve, bayern, Dortmund, Madrid, Barca, Atletico have all been conceding goals for fun this season so far.


5.) 02 Sep 2019 13:52:50
Young Lad, one game. He has some great strengths and definitely has things to work on.

The price reflects his high potential rather than his current ability but let's give it some time.

{Ed001's Note - I remain to be convinced as he shows no ability to defend. The money seems to be paid for his ability on the ball rather than his ability to defend.}


6.) 02 Sep 2019 19:00:50
Roy, what were you expecting VVD to say about a fellow compatriot and CB partner? That he is crap and is not good enuff? Think, man.

I'm with Ed01 on this one. I am yet to be convinced about De Ligt cos yes he is good on the ball, he simply can't defend for now. There is a reason why I think Gomez is already better than him. Gomez is great on the ball, faster, more physical with a higher ceiling. He can also defend one one one in wide areas as a CB cos well, he can play RB.

{Ed025's Note - your right redwolf, what roy does not realize is that every single liverpool player is out of this world and absolutely brilliant and world class, every other player on the planet is totally crap and they can only wish that they played for the reds,...come on roy get with the programme..

Not because of matchday fever but we should sign that harry wilson guy.


Oh wait a minute.

He is once in a generation talent on dead balls. That free kick against city was nuts. I applaud the club finding good loan deals for him.
I think after this years experience he is definitely liverpool ready if he wasnt considered good enough now.

akshit

{Ed001's Note - did you actually watch him? He scored one free kick and then was awful. Loose touches, standing round watching his man run off him, he is just not doing enough. He needs a kick up the arse because talent is not everything.}


1.) 25 Aug 2019 16:40:23
ed001 he did put a good ball in before the goal at 0-1 should have been put away for 1-1. but he does remind me Shaqiri does not do enough in games but as an impact sub or my be at home to the lesser teams that just sit back teams with 9 men behind the ball teams like arsenal could open them up.

{Ed001's Note - he is worth far more in transfer fees than he would be in coming off the bench. I would much rather have Brewster or Divvy there for the impact sub role. We can get a good fee for Wilson and he is never going to hold down a first team place, so we should take it. If you start hanging on to coasters it sends out the wrong message to other players.}


2.) 25 Aug 2019 16:42:23
Just on a side note. How ON EARTH is Steve Cook still a Premier League player? It’s these kind of decisions that stop Bournemouth progressing. Has Howe taken them as far as he can?

{Ed001's Note - Howe has no idea about defending.}


3.) 25 Aug 2019 16:49:57
Thats why i said its a good loan for him and he will be ready next season.


4.) 25 Aug 2019 16:51:47
Clearly. The Bournemouth defending for all 3 of City’s goals today was unprofessional, you could see each goal happening 30 seconds before it actually did. Howe is a Brendan-lite coach - squanders mountains of cash on championship players, never improves the team beyond a certain level and plays an awful, inefficient, pretentious style of football.


5.) 25 Aug 2019 16:56:49
Wilson did three things on the pitch today in his 70 mins today. He scored a brilliant free kick. Got fouled by Sterling off the ball and laid on a good ball for Callum Wilson who should have done better vs Ederson, IMO. That was about it. You did not know he was playing after all that cos I rarely saw him put in tackle or any type of graft. Sorry, Wilson will be sold and I for one, welcome it cos clearly, he is not good enuff cos if he was, he would still be here.


6.) 25 Aug 2019 18:44:35
Wilson is certainly not 'Liverpool ready', excellent dead ball deliveries but anonymous for the rest of the match. Does not track back or work hard enough off the ball, I would think he is exactly the kind of player Klopp does not want in his team.
Lets see how his loan goes this season, but I think Ed01 has summed it up perfectly and Liverpool should take the money and run.


7.) 25 Aug 2019 18:53:51
@ed001 It’s weird n Just funny! Did u guys see the difference n the impact when he’s on? He’s being named as Bournemouth star man tonight. He’s a gd player. Just not suitable for JK tactics where he reuiqre combative players instead of creative players.

MkReds, "Klopp prefers combative players instead of creative players? " What are you on about, man? Are you saying that our front three are just combative and not creative? Bobbie leads the PL in assists for the past two seasons among CF's, I reckon. Salah is an assist master as well and to some extent, so is Mane (who actually plays the no. 10 role for Senegal) .

"He was Bournmouth star man". So what? Does LFC look like being at the same level as B'mouth, man? B'mouth are midtable fodder while LFC is the best team in Europe and top 2 in the PL. Again, are you for real? Inaccuracy does not even begin to describe your post. I would understand your post coming from a rival fan who does not watch us play or is just trying to whind people up BUT coming from a supposed LFC fan, it is even worse.

I've heard so many people today complaining about us letting Wilson out on loan, it's laughable that simply a great free kick gets many clueless fans thinking he's good enough. They've literally judged him on that one moment and clearly not analysed his overall match contributions.

Yet the general opinion these same fans give on coutinho is that he offers nothing asides from hitting screamers and he's not a good fit for us. So many contradictions it's laughable how strong opinions are made with zero factual insight to base them on.

Even if Wilson scores another 15 free kicks this season he's still not capable of offering this Liverpool team what we need.

Let's remember the likes of Charlie Adam or nuri sahin as guys who had only style over substance.


10.) 25 Aug 2019 21:17:18
hahaha every time I watch harry, 90% of the game he is disengaged then he springs to life in the attacking third. I really want him to develop the rest of his game but from a distance it looks like he has fallen as in love with his motd highlights as the fans have.


11.) 25 Aug 2019 22:34:12
I agree with Ed 100%. Sell him. Why would we want someone who is JUST a free kick specialist? We'd be playing with 10 men most of the match until that one moment that there is a free kick 30 yards out.


12.) 26 Aug 2019 00:09:52
2 goals from 3 games that he did not do the full 90 for a 15-> 20m rated young winger who just joint a premiership team is not bad. Bournemouth are thinking they got themselves a bargain. don't know what most of you expect from him. he is one of our own be happy for him. most of you bark about youth here is one trying to shine and you just RIP him to pieces.


13.) 26 Aug 2019 01:51:30
No one has been ripping him to pieces or slating him, just saying that he's not a fit for our team and calling it how it is, no disrespect has been shown to him just realistic reasoning why klopp is clearly right in not needing him. 2 goals in 3 games is great but that's not at all a measure of wether he'd be suitable for us. Ashley Barnes has 4 goals doesn't mean he's good enough to play for us.


14.) 26 Aug 2019 06:58:05
No room for sentimentality, Roy. If he's good enough let's keep him. If he's not, let's wish him the best. We need players who play a good, hard, 90 minutes each and every week and, despite the occasional goal, Harry doesn't do that.


15.) 26 Aug 2019 07:52:33
its because we know that he can do that already. The detractors want to see the rest of his game develop so he can fit in next season.


16.) 26 Aug 2019 13:14:11
People forget so easily that we have let much better players leave (Suso, Teixeira and Luis Alberto come to mind) because they still didn't fit the mold Klopp has in mind for his midfielders. I doubt there'd be so much interest if Wilson was not homegrown.


17.) 26 Aug 2019 17:44:59
Remember the last bloke we had at the club who was rated mostly for his set pieces? Charlie something? He worked out well.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see lads come through from the youth system, but he needs more than a tasty freekick in his locker to convince me and more importantly, to convince Klopp. That's presumably why we let him go on loan to a Premier League club, to see can he step up.


18.) 26 Aug 2019 19:06:02
Roy, please stop with the whole "righteous indignation" stuff, ok? Thi is footie at the highest level and if you think any of us care about Wilson's stats of two goals in 3 games w/ o considering the rest of his body of work in those game like you are doing now, then you are fooling yourself.

I could not be arsed about his misleading stats. The guy does NADA on the pitch if he is not scoring a screamer. What happened before and after the screamer? Nothing and if that does not change, he will be sold and you can then support whatever team he plays for.

Whats everybody's view of maguire. 80 million pounds. Is he that good?
I mean Leicester were pretty average last season and conceded a lot.
Is he all that good. I think he very poor witthout the ball and that's what 90 percent of defending is about.

akshit

1.) 04 Aug 2019 11:48:36
He improves what they have but to compare him to Virgil is just insane. He’s a steady and solid enough CB but if they are banking on him making the same impact as Virg did with us I think they are in for a shock.


2.) 04 Aug 2019 11:49:17
Maybe good enough for Europa League but not top drawer.

Will be found out when playing elite clubs.

Trouble for United is that at least two of the elite clubs are on their doorstep.

{Ed025's Note - man city and everton?.


3.) 04 Aug 2019 11:51:27
Thats the funny thing, Leicester were not exactly a formidable defensive unit. They are selling a defender for 80m and they may even get a better defensive record by the end of the season. I say maybe because Brendan is the coach.


4.) 04 Aug 2019 11:51:38
I think he’s slow, lumpen, not good with pacy mobile attackers and certainly not a defender you’d play in a high line. United fans made a lot of us spending £75m on van Dijk, yet they’ve spaffed more on an inferior player, that price tag is going to be a millstone around his neck, VVD handled it well, I don’t think Maguire will be able to handle it in the same manner.

{Ed025's Note - you mean you hope..


5.) 04 Aug 2019 11:53:37
In a fair world no player is worth anywhere near what is paid these days. But we do not live in a fair world. For me he’s not worth the price however Utd desperately need a centre half. Does he improve them? I think he does massively. But that is more to do with how poor they have been defensively. With Maguire, Wan Bisaaka and De Gea you would imagine they will be a lot stronger defensively this season. So if that’s the case he could turn out to be worth the money for them.


6.) 04 Aug 2019 12:12:27
Attempt to weaken their competitors for 6th!


7.) 04 Aug 2019 12:52:10
The funny thing is that VVD's fee was 75m only cos of the tapping up issue with Klopp. Ed02 said agent fees alone was 13m. Taking that into account, VVD would have cost much less than 75m had we done things right.

This is what makes the Maguire signing at 80m even more unfathomable. Everyone who saw VVD in the PL with Saints, knew he could one day, be great cos his potential and ability were immense and his upside was tremendous. Who that the same of Maguire when they saw him lumber his carcass around for Hull in the PL? I would guess very little to nobody at all. I mean seriously, if you had 80m to blow on a CB, would Maguire be the one you would pick?

IMO, This signing stinks of desperation and rank fecklessness and for the Utd fans slating us for dropping 75m for VVD, they are the ones with eggs on their faces for spending 80m on a player who is by a few miles, inferior to him. Good luck with that, guys. You're going to need it, IMO.


8.) 04 Aug 2019 13:02:42
I think he is an ok defender, but the reality is that there are not that many great ones around. Man Utd were desperate for a defender, and due to the price Liverpool paid for Van Dijk, Leicester were always going to demand an enormous fee.
I thought at the time, Liverpool were crazy to spend £70 million on Van Dijk but we all think he was a baragain now. The cost of players has gone right up since then.
Maguire will definitely improve Utd, but its not his fault he cost more than Van Dijk but is inferior to him. Liverpool have got the best defender in the world, so no point comparing the players or fees.


9.) 04 Aug 2019 13:14:23
If Leicester's scouting team have anything about them, they should be able to get an upgrade on Harry Mcguire for half that amount.


10.) 04 Aug 2019 13:25:00
Agree with 6times above, Maguire doesn’t have the pace.
I wonder about their back 4, it all doesn’t look quick enough to play a high press, nor are the full backs a huge threat going forward.
Over £130 m on two defenders for that outcome?


11.) 04 Aug 2019 13:52:55
It sounds like United back four will have no pace if the stories about their full back are true along with carthorse Maguire.

Wan Bisaka will be 10 yards further up the pitch than the rest of that back line .

If they can’t offload Pogba and they use that static Matic they should be picked off by anyone with any pace. And we have pace all over the place.


12.) 04 Aug 2019 14:04:18
More bus parking from United is the most likely outcome from all this.


13.) 04 Aug 2019 11:55:48

Hey ed025 you got a good young striker there. Are you excited to see how he gets on in the prem.

{Ed025's Note - very much so tim, but i thought the same about sandro mate and look how that turned out..


16.) 04 Aug 2019 12:21:36
He’s just a fat headed Michael Keane Ed025. 😉.

{Ed025's Note - hes a good player for me 6times, lacks a bit of pace but very good on the ball mate..


17.) 04 Aug 2019 17:18:39
To be fair he's a good centre back. Very good. And improves utd a lot. But they got their pants pulled down at 80mil. that's ridiculous. Id have been shocked had it been anything over 50mil.

I think the lad has earned his shot at a big side. Could have pushed for a move last season but knuckled down and played. Okay. If it wasnt utd id wish him well. Type of cb you don't like playing against i guess. With the right coaching (and diet) he could be a top cb.


18.) 04 Aug 2019 17:29:59
Decent CD, ok on the ball, good heading, slow to turn. Wouldn't make our bench, Lovren and Matip edges it for me, with VVD and Gomez starting.


19.) 04 Aug 2019 18:11:43
At the end of the day, you do have to have a bit of a chuckle, to go from talking about signing Koulibaly, Verane, Alderwiereld et al, to then end up spaffing a world record on slab head is amusing. Everton should have offered them Michael Keane back for half of it. I’m pretty sure Ed Woodward would have gone for that too.


20.) 04 Aug 2019 18:20:23
I think Solskjaer imagines him as a sort of Ferdinand/ Vidic type signing that is going to shore up the entire defence but I think he is massively over-estimating his quality. He is very good on the ball, no question, and he is an improvement over what United currently have. That wouldn't be difficult though because what United currently have is absolutely dire. I think Maguire is slow and cumbersome and I don't think he reads the game particularly well. The transfer fee is neither here nor there because all transfers are just ridiculous these days but, as a player, I'm not sure he is going to solve United's defensive woes.


21.) 04 Aug 2019 18:33:56
Maguire is not even better than Gomez nor Matip n I don't think anyone would pay anywhere near 80m for either of them so Utd got whipped badly and like someone said, Leicester could get an upgrade on Maguire easily for well below even 50m.

{Ed025's Note - of course gomez and matip are better...maguire is a good player but those two are world class, i dont know why united never offered £500,000,000 for each of them they are that good, household names around the world and even the kaiser looks second rate compared to these two.. :)


22.) 04 Aug 2019 19:40:44
Ed25, love the banter.

{Ed025's Note - thats what its all about redwolf friendly banter, or we would all be zombies...like city,s fans.. :)


23.) 04 Aug 2019 19:50:30
I don't see a massive difference between gomez and maguire. I wouldn't swap, i know that.

{Ed047's Note - Gomez is way better and will only get better


24.) 04 Aug 2019 21:10:16
Robbie, Gomez is miles ahead of Maguire, IMO. Maguire is slow as a slug, does not read the game well, is stiff in his hips so is weak on the turn when a striker spins him. Gomez is none of these. Already, if you have stiff hips and can't turn on a dime when rolled or have no pace at all or can't defend one on one out in space, you can't play RB which Gomez plays cos he possesses all the attributes I just mentioned.

Maguire possesses none of these things. Maguire also does not read the game well and tho Gomez is not great at this either, he still has time to learn next to a true 75m-80m CB in VVD. Like I said, I would not even pay anywhere near 80m for Gomez even tho his upside is tremendous.


25.) 04 Aug 2019 21:11:26
{Ed025's Note - that's what its all about redwolf friendly banter, or we would all be zombies. like city, s fans. :)

You had me in stitches with that last part, Ed.

{Ed025's Note - cheers..


26.) 04 Aug 2019 22:55:17
I think they overpaid, He seemed average last season. United fans were flaming us about the VVD deal but he came in and just helped take us to the next level.

I can't see the same thing happening with Maguire, it might but I just can't see it. Maybe help a little bit but i don't really see him as much of a improvement over who they already have.

Also seeing links with Dybala now. Rated him so much a few years ago but seemed to have slowed down even gone backwards in development. Think that is risky, has all the potential but can he apply it, the prem will be a bit more physical than Italy!

Yea and potentially 60+ games next season and also has only no one ahead of him as nobody plays AM.

{Ed001's Note - Shaqiri and Bobby can both play there, as can Lallana. However Klopp rarely uses an AM so it is of little use being an AM is it?}

Nah I was very confident with the Chelsea game because chelsea were out to play.
If united score somehow it will 11 players wall we will need to score.
As I said we need to perform in this game at a good level, a level obviously we can play at and should be playing at.
This won't be a stroll.
