Ed002 reports that we scouted liverpool atalanta watching koopmeiners and are willing to pay €60m to bring him. Any truth? Would be a good Gallagher replacement and bring experience.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Teun Koopmeiners (DM/CM) Atalanta are reluctant to sell but his agent wants the player to be playing regularly in the Champions League with Newcastle, Juventus and Napoli having declared interest. Interest of Milan shifted to Tijjani Reijnders so they can be discounted. Approaches were been made to Arsenal, Manchester United, Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea although none have spoken with Atalanta and all have other targets for now but cannot be discounted with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United having sent scouts. Brighton and Aston Villa interest has gone. Juventus has a creative solution and will push for a summer move. Player wants Juventus move. Marseille have walked away due to the quoted cost although a change of ownership could see a huge shift for them. Atalanta are seeking €60M if pressed to sell.}

Ed002 is it true we are interested in dani olmo.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Dani Olmo (AM/W) Signed a new contract last year but could still be sold this summer if a significant offer were made. Atletico, Manchester City and Barcelona are interested, although Barcelona have preferred options. Chelsea considered him as a Mason Mount replacement but have preferred options. Bayern Munich interest has gone.}


 

 

25 Mar 2024 12:10:51
Ed002 any truth we are interested in nottingham forest defender murillo?

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Murillo (CB) The sharks are circlisng as Nottingham Forest look to shore the club up against further FFP charges and move players on. Liverpool and Chelsea have have sent scouts but I understand both consider him physically short to meet their desires. Barcelona have also sent scouts as they see him as versatile enough to fit in a three with their revamped defence.}


 

 

24 Mar 2024 11:04:34
Ed002 are we interested in lamine camara?

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - He was watched but cannot move to England and has no intention of moving.}


 

 

22 Mar 2024 16:10:01
Ed002 reports saying we scouted gyokeres vs portugal and are going to make an offer soon? Any truth and with osimehen now looking unlikely is he the priority main target for cf? Or is it sesko or someone else? Thanks.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer questions about the timing of bids.}


1.) 22 Mar 2024 19:41:45
With the osimhen deal looking less likely has gyorkeres our no1 target?

Has a release clause so Chelsea and others know what they have to do if they want him.


2.) 23 Mar 2024 07:24:50
Ivan Toney has to be the number one priority this summer. Jackson is getting better with each game and will be ready to lead the line soon. Toney is EPL proven and will do the job for a couple of seasons. Don't waste crazy money on a striker, if we are going to spend big, get a proven CB in ???.


3.) 22 Mar 2024 21:58:04
Ed002 Is he our first choice option now for cf?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are already looking at other options as they are not convinced Osimhen will want to join in the summer.}


4.) 23 Mar 2024 21:19:44
LukakWho imo don't see Tony an improvement on Jackson. besides can't understand how exactly Tony is proven rpl striker what exactly has he proven?


5.) 24 Mar 2024 19:39:30
Despite a headers v Brentford and Villa, Jackson doesn’t have the physical and Ariel box threat Toney has, great back to goal 40 yards from goal to give and go or channel runs but when we’ve needed to cross v teams who have numbers in the box, Jackson isn’t in the mould of a Toney or giroud or adebayo awonyi Antonio who’s going to cause panic and win those headers. The ones where you turn a ok cross into a goal rather than scoring header from a cross pin pointed onto his head.


6.) 24 Mar 2024 22:20:16
Ed002 do you think we will get gyokeres or try for him? Or is price too high? I personally see us getting sesk. And with Brighton connections could we maybe look at Ferguson?

{Ed002's Note - (1) He is not the first choice. (2) Ferguson would be well down the list.}


7.) 27 Mar 2024 13:35:09
Martin I don't get the hype around toney and Jackson only need time to settle down and I think he will perform when we have a formidable team not what poch is doing now. Toney is not even a big fish in a small pond yet you are raving about him. He's not Chelsea level much less one to improve us. So your fabricated skills of toney is a joke to me.


8.) 28 Mar 2024 15:30:28
Matt, Haaland isn’t very good in the air. Actually do any of the team in the top five teams play with the sort of CF you describe?

I’m not even sure how many top clubs in any top league play with that type of CF anymore!


9.) 29 Mar 2024 15:06:34
I disagree Haaland is okay in the air. Just because teams in the top five don’t have a CF who is good in the air doesn’t mean they don’t want one. Why wouldn’t they, apart from posing a threat in the opponent’s box it is also useful defensively e. g Drogba.


10.) 29 Mar 2024 16:56:12
For better or worse the so called modern CF has to have a more rounded game than being good in the air. A good first touch, good movement and pace now seem to be a bigger priority for the better teams in Europe not just the Premiership.


11.) 29 Mar 2024 17:26:03
I didn’t realise there is such a thing as a modern CF, I am not suggesting that being strong in the air is the only attribute for a CF but imo a top striker should be good in the air.


12.) 29 Mar 2024 17:45:48
In this case I’m using the term “modern” to reflect the current trend.

It would be wonderful if a CF had every attribute but unfortunately that’s is very rare. It would appear that most successful teams and there managers have decided that being good in the air is as important as it used to be.

I’m not even sure my No1 choice (Osimhen) is that good in the air.


13.) 29 Mar 2024 19:26:37
Tom, Osimhen is good in the air.


14.) 29 Mar 2024 22:24:13
You may or may not remember but I went over to Naples at the end of last season, partly to join in what I thought was going to be a victory parade but Also to see my No1 choice as our CF play.

Needless to say the plan didn’t work out as I had hoped but I did take the opportunity to have many drinks with Napoli fans. I was very keen to bring the conversation around to the player rather than the team. They talked about his pace and work rate more than any other attribute. Obviously I had watched him throughout that season as I have tried to this season, including AFCON, when he was average. I have never thought of him as being brilliant in the air. If that’s another skill he has so much the better.

Edd02 a lot if rumors that Napoli know they will get a bid in for Osimhen that will be acceptable and he has chosen his next club and likely us? Any truth? Anything changed? Thank you.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


 

 

30 Mar 2024 22:16:02
Ed002 are we looking at arne slot.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Last summer.}


1.) 31 Mar 2024 10:37:21
Ed

Do you feel there will be a managerial change in the summer or will Poch be given more time.

{Ed002's Note - The answwer is possibly.}


2.) 31 Mar 2024 13:25:11
Thank you ED.


 

 

12 Mar 2024 11:14:18
Ed002 is it true we are in talks with Diomande and will sign him in the summer? Thanks.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - There is no decision although there have been taks with his club. This has all been explained before.}


1.) 12 Mar 2024 15:37:46
how many more cbs do we need.


2.) 12 Mar 2024 16:13:58
The question is more "how many top table centre backs do we have? "


3.) 12 Mar 2024 18:11:17
G8

It would be interesting to see our CB's getting a rin of games next to one another instead of being injured, maybe then your question might be answered.


4.) 12 Mar 2024 18:42:41
Not entirely sure we need another CB. Silva will leave in the summer and most likely Chalobah. But would still leave us with Colwill, Disasi, Fofana, Badiashile and Gilchrest. Fofana’s had a lot of injuries but not sure we should be spending £60m on a CB when we need a ST and winger more imo. Doesn’t make much sense unless we’re selling another CB but then again our transfer strategy hasn’t made much sense either ?.


5.) 12 Mar 2024 20:19:16
I do take your point Bill but also question if we have enough talent. I like Disasi and Levi. That would be my starting 2. After that though I'm not sure. Young Alfie looks a talent but needs a loan. Fofana maybe the answer but he is always injured. BB is a decent player but is he top table? same goes for Trevor. As for wingers I'm happy with what we have plus we have some talent out on loan in Hutchinson and Paez is joining next January, an attacking midfielder of pure class, albeit young. Trust me when I say we have a real talent on our hands in him. Yes, a striker to play alongside/ compete with Jackson is needed but not much else. The squad is looking good.


6.) 12 Mar 2024 23:49:31
Silva has been brilliant for us but we now have to give others an opportunity.

I just cannot see us signing anyone that isn’t perceived as an upgrade. The young CH from SL is going to be class. We can only sign him in my opinion if we sell.

I’m happy enough with our midfield when they are fit.

I do think we need a CF. I would like last seasons Osimhen please.


7.) 13 Mar 2024 09:05:20
We also have Humphries to come back as well.


8.) 14 Mar 2024 11:36:04
Really hope we can get yoro, looks brilliant, ed002 there are reports we want him but a lot of interest, are we interested and do we have a realistic chance? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Leny Yoro (CB) Lille kiddie who already has PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid declaring an interest. Manchester City, PSG and Manchester United have sent scouts and Manchester City are keen to do something. May have been noticed by Liverpool when scouting another player against Nantes, but no declared interest at this time - regardless of reports saying they will pay €90M for him. Lille will resist a sale unless someone pays significantly over the odds for him.}


 

 

09 Mar 2024 12:52:34
Ed002 on another page you said chelsea may need a replacement for reece james, can I ask why? Is he looking to leave or is there strong interest? Surely we aren't going to sell him? Thanks.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - I have dealt with this all before.}


 

 

05 Mar 2024 09:02:57
Ed002 reports that we are looking at de zerbi and amorim to replace poch in the summer, is this true? What managers are we looking at? And who would you go for? Thanks.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - There are a number of options.}


1.) 05 Mar 2024 13:47:33
If the owners get de zerbi in, honestly why did they not just buy brighton, not even being funny. The amount of money we've sent to nrighton alone is astronomical and literally none of it has worked out. Zilch.


2.) 05 Mar 2024 13:20:14
Edoo2, Ed001

Who would you say would be the ideal coach for our young squad and bearing in mind the merry go round of coaches that will happen in the summer, would it be realistic to obtain him/ her.

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in discussing the subject Bill. Sorry.}


3.) 05 Mar 2024 15:46:15
Thank you Ed no problem. I can understand your reasons.


4.) 05 Mar 2024 16:17:08
Really hope we avoid De Zerbi, done to death with Brighton. Amorim seems to be a coach people are taking about. I’d prefer someone with a bit more experience personally, Allegri, Jose, Inzaghi.


5.) 06 Mar 2024 05:19:13
Hi Ed002, last summer before Poch was confirmed you expressed a liking for A. Slott in The Netherlands. If the club were to consider a change of manager at seasons end, would he be still in the mix, or has that ship sailed?
Understand if you don't want to reply, but thanks for the snippets you do still supply. Thanks and keep up the good work.

{Ed002's Note - It will be difficult now, but a good option.}

Ed002 I'm assuming alphonso davies is the first choice but with his price and madrid strongly interested I can't see it unless we have a chance? Do we? Balde we have liked and with barcas wage issues maybe attainable but doubt it. Robinson is good but probably too old for what we go for now and price maybe too high and are we interested in feyenoord impressive Lb hartman? Thanks.

Ed002 would the preffered option be kvaratskhelia? Is Napoli who maybe wanted Mudryk in any potential deal? And I'm guessing the gk is maignan? Thanks a lot for detailed answers.

Sorry ed, didn't mean to annoy you, i agree we need a cb, just was wondering if another might be potentially leaving with maybe 2 coming in and fofanas injury worries are an issue. Or maybe if Poch does go and we get a manger that plays 3 at the back like Amorim maybe that's why we may look st bringing 2 cbs in.

Zola250

Ed002, 2 cbs? Assuming silva and chalobah go still have 4 cbs in colwill, badiashile, disasi, fofana unless one of them might be leaving? And gk meaning sanchez might go? Also was hoping we wouod get onana or palhinha as need some height and physicality in midfield.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Alright then no CBs and the club will be buying midfield players they have no interest in.}

Ed002 do. you mean spurs will talk to Chelsea about getting him this window? And would gallagher even accept if we agree a deal? And is. hat player close to returning lavia? Do you know how long ugochukwu is expected to be out? Thank you.

Zola250

{Ed002's Note - Of course they will sign him if something to be agreed. It is nothing to do with Lavia, he plays a different position. This is all becoming very tiresome.}
