    But to say we havent bid for someone - how would you know that? If you had inside information the info would be we have bid for X or Y.

    Why would information leak to her about us not bidding for someone? She couldnt know that.

    Thats not really inside info though. That article was written on the 27th May.

    The Benteke player talk on TIA started on May 23rd. Maybe this forum has advanced news too.

    Reporting something doesnt mean you have inside information.

    Haha the opinion pieces come after the links, even for the journos.

    What's the saying? you can lead a horse to water...

    She's been accurate with everything so far, reports from inside Anfield on game days, she has great access to the players and gets sit down one on ones...not much else I can say. You can smear her with the journo taint if you like. I'm not really that bothered, I was just trying maybe to hard to answer who she is and why I believe her story. Listen to TAW if you really want your doubts about her enforced/dispelled.

    Yup, not sure who Gujic or Matip are :well done:. She's been around a little longer than that. If you want specifics try google.

    Yes she's been in front of all of our transfer dealings for around a year. Saying who isn't a target (for example, the guys thread we are ruining), and who is a genuine target we are pursuing. First? Not sure. I bet she was on a couple though, yes. Joyce, Pearce, etc. will usually all spit the same info out at the same time, so I'm sure they all have the same contact.

    My main point in all of this is I'd put her stories on the same level of trust as I would Hunter, Pearce, Joyce, Barret, etc., the reliable Liverpool reporters.

    Well you see heres the thing. Goal.com has a history, long history of simply being a news aggregator. They take news from other sites, and put the story out there, or reprint them. Including often a lot of BS.

    I can read a Pearce, Barrett, Joyce article and put my own spin on it and put it out within 10 minutes, its not hard. Most news outlets regurgitate news. TIA does it. Nothing wrong with it, but it doesnt pretend to have the inside track.

    So theres a difference between those that get the stories and those that simply re-report them.

    I like the idea of bringing in competition for Moreno, but I think I'd prefer if we made a serious bid for Ricardo Rodriguez.

    It is relevant though, we are testing the validity of the claim by the VP of the club that weve made a bid vs the journalist who says we havent.

    I prefer to take a laid back attitude to transfers. There are a few sources that I feel are reliable and once I've read we're linked I just wait and see. No point backing one journo over another and getting over keen by it all.

    Nice to see we are targeting someone nobody here knows about, so now I am waiting for the usual suspect to come out saying how good is he compared to who we have. Like that Grujic fella and that polish midfielder we are supposedly about to sign, Zielinkski, both been touted to be better than our players today.

    No Liverpool offer for Guerreiro as Chilwell remains the main target

    By Melissa Reddy

    Liverpool has not bid for Raphael Guerreiro despite Lorient vice-president Alex Hayes claiming as much, sources tell Goal.

    Leicester City's Ben Chilwell is the priority target at left back, with the Reds escalating negotiations with the Premier League champion over the 19-year-old.

    The Reds have distanced themselves from any links with Guerreiro as they continue to pursue a shortlist of targets, which does not include the defender.

    Technically, she is saying that the sources told Goal, she's not saying that they are her sources. If the club have distanced themselves from the move, then the other journalists would have said so wouldnt they?

    I'm also interested by the use of the Chilwell as the "priority target at left back". Does that mean we expect him to play left back next season, or are we going with Moreno?

    Whether Reddy or Hayes are closest to the truth doesn't faze me sat all.
    What does is that we do need a quality LB this summer,can't possibly start another season with Moreno first choice.
    We are already seeing heaps of LB's names floated..what happened to Hector?
    Not convinced about Chilwell and would be surprised if Reddy is right about him being first choice.
    Know nothing about Guerreiro except what I've seen in the last few hours but based on that he'd be as good a pick as any.
    Anyway,time will tell,probably another couple of dozen to go,yet.

    According to some reports in France, he's close to agreement with Dortmund who would pay €10m (a year left on his Lorient deal) for him on a 4-year deal.

    I refuse to believe that until it's confirmed by Melissa Reddy.

    Lovely free kick. We could use some of that; there's always room for an Aurelio-esque left foot.
