Just read that coutinho rejected the requests of the coaches to stay at home, so he could make the bench for the game on saturday, then to come off the bench and score. This is the exact attitude and type of player we need here at liverpool, hats off to him.

Couts has to stay, build our team around him, need another Mane .


2.) 11 Apr 2017 00:53:45
What would you do with another Mane if you've built your team around Coutinho?


3.) 11 Apr 2017 02:02:09
Coutinho was always needee to stay. He didn't need to do anything like that to justify it.

Hes our boy. Show him the love and he will give you the heart.


4.) 11 Apr 2017 03:24:35
build another mane and mane running around firmino!? and then someone can get their dream of firmino in central midfield realised.! :p.


5.) 11 Apr 2017 03:52:08
probably the best £8.5m the club has ever spent.


6.) 11 Apr 2017 06:07:23
Sure the best 8.5 we ever spent was on ings, that free transfer.


7.) 11 Apr 2017 08:25:26
support coutinho zimbo, as Mane has done.


8.) 11 Apr 2017 15:26:17
Don't worry I'd happily take another Mane! Just not sure if we'll get someone of his level to join with no obvious starting spot. Think hopefully Coutinho, Firmino and Mane will be our starting lineup and wouldn't want to see that changed myself.


9.) 11 Apr 2017 15:41:46
kudos couts, however if and when he is not in form let's remember this instead of wanting him out.


10.) 11 Apr 2017 21:18:01
The problem with football these days is that the Doctors think they pick the team. Hats off to Coutinho for his positive attitude and nonsense to all that red zone, orange zone, green zone crap.


11.) 12 Apr 2017 01:28:00
He must be mad. If someone offered me the day off id take 2.


12.) 12 Apr 2017 09:17:18
Haha that's good one mingo.

From what i can work out the players we are interested in are:

Chilwell
Hector
Karius
Zielinski
Gotze
Silva

I have never seen any of those players play but i guess any addition at goalkeeper and left back is welcome. Zielinski and silva seem slightly unneccasary unles we get rid of a lot of players. Hector is apparently more defensive minded which is exactly what we need. I was still hoping for perhaps a holding mid to push Can and Henderson more but maybe Grujic is that player. However i fail to see the point of chilwell as he is just another joe gomez surely? And personally i like joe gomez so i'd much rather see him or smith given a chance.

The outs that everybody can virtually agree on are:

Mignolet
Moreno
Skrtel
Lallana
Milner
Benteke
Balotelli
Allen
Alberto
And all the academy players who will be moving on.

If all that happens i'd consider it a very successful summer and cannot wait for next season with a squad of klopps own players.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 20 May 2016 18:09:47
Lallana will stay, Klopp said as much the other day. I can't see Milner moving on either on his wages and the sort of club he'd want to go to.


2.) 20 May 2016 18:54:38
Joe Gomez is a cb not a lb Rodgers just stuck him there like he did Flanagan. I really like Gomez he's got a lot of promise, good with the ball at his feet, is comfortable with a challenge and not bad in the air. just hope he comes back from injury well.


3.) 20 May 2016 18:54:50
Milner's leading our assists table. I'd keep him on the condition that he's usually played on the right of midfield rather than in the middle.


4.) 20 May 2016 19:07:00
AW, Migs not be moving, neither will Milner. Lallana, I think, may make way for Goetze, but not necessarily. I think illori will move on too.


5.) 20 May 2016 19:53:12
Aren't we also interested/ linked with another midfielder? Dhroud is it?


6.) 20 May 2016 19:58:53
Perhaps Goetze will replace Coutinho? Barcelona have been looking recently and something was said earlier in the year, about him wanting to move on if there is no champions league football at Liverpool.

It wouldn't surprise me if a decent offer came in for him at least. We're not in a position where we can reject the advances of clubs like Barcelona, we haven't got the finances and we don't have any European competition next season.

One thing is for sure, Coutinho will not sell cheap, so if he does leave we'll at least get a tidy sum for him.


7.) 20 May 2016 20:44:40
I don't think Goetze and Coutinho are related at all. I would aso be not so sure either of Hector or Silva are coming in. While Liverpool has scouted both players, we have not made any effort to move for them, and are concentrating on bringing in Zielinski, Chilwell, Karius and seemingly Goetze.


8.) 20 May 2016 21:36:46
Mignolet has a 5yr contract.
He will not be leaving unless some fool offers us more than his contract is worth.


9.) 20 May 2016 22:09:24
im sure whoever klopp buys will be the right player for the team, he knows what he needs to do after this season so i will put my faith in him to get it right instead of trying to second guess him, if he brings these players in then he needs them yes we have other players in the team already but he might not see a future for them because unlike us he sees them every day and knows there weaknesess, like lallana for instance he is a good player but there's hardley any end product from him and i don't think he is at the right standard for us maybe Zielinski will have a better end product because these 2 are very a like, also the players he is buying he is getting them cheap not like BR who over spent on players, its so refreshing that he is getting players this cheap for a change,


10.) 20 May 2016 23:47:07
Great insight despite having never seen any of them play.


11.) 21 May 2016 01:11:06
I don't agree Lallana and Milner should go. 2 of our most consistent performers under Klopp. Allen could do a job as a squad player. Moreno - has still (some) time to learn how to defend. Not sure he will though!


12.) 21 May 2016 07:00:34
AndyM, lalana should go if Gotze replace him. Milner can go if we get Zielinski.


13.) 21 May 2016 14:52:38
Andym that mean no one significant leaving and based on that no one coming in. Simple tranfer window.


14.) 22 May 2016 00:45:17
Skrtel, Benteke and Allen, if he moves, all significant 'Outs'. I don't see CM as a priority for strengthening. Matip and Grujic both significant 'Ins' already done. A GK and Lb needed (Lb whether Moreno stays or goes) . I hope for a lot from Ings next season.


 

 

21 Mar 2016 20:45:32
Everything points to skrtel being sold. Ilori and wisdom likely to follow in all honesty. He won't even play ilori ahead of lucas at centre back.

Ed002, do you have any info on these supposed claims that sturridge may want to leave?

Various people seem to think there's something in it and i believe you have said in the past he could leave, unless i am mistaken.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure he doesn't want to leave. He will want to prove himself to be fit and be a regular starter.}


1.) 25 Feb 2016 08:09:37
I genuinely thought mountains were being made out of molehills by this entire situation. People were looking for updates when there was no update to give. I'm fairly certain Klopp came out at one stage during it and said studge needs a 'pre season' of sorts before he could play which made sense in my mind because it was breaking the perpetual cycle of injury > recover > thrown back in straight away > inevitable break down
Only time will tell if the cycle has been broken so fingers crossed.

{Ed002's Note - Sturridge was, quite correctly, eased back in. If he picks up an injury now because too much is being asked too soon then the finger will point directly at the coaching staff.}


2.) 25 Feb 2016 08:18:21
I agree it's a difficult balancing act for Klopp and co. Play him too much and he will most certainly break down again, don't play him enough and you'll have certain sections of the media/ supporters blasting management for not playing our best player and will come out with ridiculous rumours and theories. Common sense rarely prevails!


3.) 25 Feb 2016 11:50:19
Eds and Reds would I be right in saying that the majority of his injuries have come in training rather than a competitive match? Not sure where I'm going with this, but perhaps he needs the Ledley King treatment?


4.) 25 Feb 2016 12:16:24
I'll take the Ed's word on this, paper talk is generally made sensationalism. With any luck he can put this all behind him, Studge is a top class finisher and a tremendous player, so I am glad to see him back.


 

 

03 Nov 2015 20:07:22
According to someone i know who claimed he has an itk inside liverpool, liverpool will be looking to offload sturridge, allen, enrique and lovren in january as they have been identified as the weak links in the squad, for various reasons.

Anybody else heard anything like this?

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 03 Nov 2015 20:39:31
Not heard it but all make complete sense.

Ed002 has also been aluding to sturridge leaving for the past couple of months.

Wouldn't be worried about any of them going to be honest.

Sturridge needs Italy or Spain where he might get away with having to be so fit and therefore reduce injuries.


2.) 03 Nov 2015 20:57:19
Really don't see Sturridge going in Jan unless there is a replacement lined up.


3.) 03 Nov 2015 22:08:31
Can't see studge going as long as Ings is out injured.


4.) 03 Nov 2015 22:55:41
Can not see Sturridge going in January. From what my guy tells me, Klopp wants everything possible done to keep him fit for a sustained period of time.


5.) 04 Nov 2015 00:28:34
Don't get all this cool calmness about the possibility of studge leaving. yes I fully understand he is having a terrible rub of injuries. But for God sake the lad is still young and overcome this, and is one of the best strikers in the prem league. He really does get the love from our supporters I feel. just my opinion.


6.) 04 Nov 2015 01:26:42
We'd be lucky to get ten million for him, rather keep him for that, unless klopp sees firmino as the cover for benteke until Ings is back.


7.) 04 Nov 2015 04:10:57
LOL we have some funny fans and posters! Sturridge is quality. Yes he picks up injuries. Shall we also sell Henderson? Gomez? Yes. I understand he gets injured more frequently than others but this is not good. We shouldn't treat people this way.

A lot of people stuck with Suarez and his whole racism debacle. Then when he bit people a lot of people still wanted to keep him.

Be a ****er that's fine. get injured and we don't want you.

Nice one.


8.) 04 Nov 2015 09:37:55
Who is going to sign sturridge when he hasn't even played half a season over the last two?


9.) 04 Nov 2015 12:42:34
Do Man City say the same about Aguero?

Yes, he's more injury prone than Darren Anderton (reference for the oldies there! ), but he's class when he's available and we need all the class we've got.


10.) 04 Nov 2015 23:32:56
Seriously? Who at this point in time would splash the cash on Sturridge? Way too much of a risk for any buying club!


11.) 06 Nov 2015 07:55:56
eds I disagree with your comment that SG has not been good enough for years. He was pivotal in our title challenge in the deeper role!

{Ed001's Note - in some respects yes, but his lack of defensive awareness was a huge part of the reason we shipped so many goals and failed to win it.}

I don't see why everyone is so impatient about keita, if we can't get him so what, if he really wants the move we can get him next year, he isn't an absolute essential for me this season.

Coutinho, I would hope would be able to agree to an understanding of staying 1 more season, our first proper season back in the champions league for a while, I feel we will be in a much stronger position to let him leave in a seasons time, by the looks of things neymar will most likely stay and there will be no space for him at barcelona as it stands.

As for van dijk, I would hope we are able to get him but I wish he would stop messing around and just hand in a formal transfer request, he certainly isn't the only defender I would be buying and our lack of strengthening the back line is really frightening, klavan, lovren and clyne really are proven failures at liverpool and none of the other top teams have as weak options as them, and while mignolet has improved, every top team has a far more competent goalkeeper than him. that's my main convern for the new season.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 30 Jul 2017 14:31:06
The squad is much stronger than last season. Salad, salanke, Robertson, gomez, studge, grucic, ings, a fully fit Henderson, mane, matip and Can (all missed too many games last season plus emerging talent TAA, Ejaria and wood burn. Yes we need a centre back but we don talk need to spend multi millions on players we don't want because the player should we'd do want are not available.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:41:50
Salad is great, very healthy too. lol.


3.) 30 Jul 2017 15:52:42
yes Salad is def a healthy option to have .

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - THIS IS THE LIVERPOOL PAGE.}


1.) 26 Jun 2017 12:57:13
I agree with ed002, that is the consensus 🤝.


2.) 26 Jun 2017 17:33:12
But yet ed 02, carragher and a host of other former players have said tapping up is rife and normal in the game, an ex city employee on sky said the very same thing, saying every deal has illegal elements, I'm not defending our behavior or excusing it, but going by people who work in the game every team is at it,

{Ed002's Note - They are making feeble excuses - Liverpool are FAR WORSE than any other side. Liverpool have been CAUGHT REPREATEDLY. All of Carraghers experience has been at Liverpool where an ex-captain admitted making ILLEGALK APPROCHES TO PLAYERS ON BEHALF OF THE CLUB. Liverpool have already had one ban IMPOSED THIS YEAR. They have since been caught again. They have been caught on two occasions telling LIES to the authorities. They SCREWED UP THE CAREER of a child. They asked the parents of the child to LIE. Why are you all dragging this out and EMBARRASING YOURSELVES and the club further. It is PITIFUL to read this nonsense. You are yet again making a lauging stock of yourselves. Yet again the board and owners have had to embarrass themselves and the club as they drag a trail of slime apologising to another side for illegally tapping up one of their players.}


 

 

07 Jun 2017 12:29:11
Please, someone, anyone, confirm these rumours are not true. A proven, mature left footed winger who wants to join us is not worth £35 million, but an unproven kid who most likely is just good on fifa, playing in a far worse league, hardly set the league alight, and is being touted at £40 million, that somehow makes more sense because he has 'potential'?!

If our club are genuinly sabotaging are transfer plans in pursuit of this mythical fantasy concept known as 'potential' and 'value for money' i will be unforgivably disappointed.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 07 Jun 2017 12:33:06
By now we could have convinced Brandt to join us and for a lesser amount. We are once again messinfg up the window.


2.) 07 Jun 2017 12:47:06
Two days ago we were having a fantastic window and looking real title contenders
Now we are messing up the window and the owners and Edwards need to move on.


3.) 07 Jun 2017 12:59:48
The window hasn't even started yet, stop panicking.


4.) 07 Jun 2017 13:01:28
Transfer window isn't open yet. Klopps on holiday.
Chill out. Jesus.
The eds must suffer from the biggest headaches ever listening to you lot cry every minute.
Stop listening to paper talk and loosing your s***.


5.) 07 Jun 2017 13:05:22
Yawn.

Its pathetic. Think some of you (Harry, you are often the biggest culprit), need to take a look at how erratic and inconsistent you are, quite literally from day to day.

2 days ago we were ready to challenge the big guns and on our way to the title, now we're messing up the window and everythings going to to pot. It's like you can't wait for facts to become facts and are literally waiting to go crazy over what is total speculation.

Its embarrassing. Sort your heads out.


6.) 07 Jun 2017 13:10:34
Well if you drop down from Brandt to Adama Traore then your challenge also drops down from title to Europa league. It is not my fault the club are changing their preferences faster than Usaain Bolt.
And for all of the above, You could complete a transfer even before the window is open ( except only paper works ) .


7.) 07 Jun 2017 13:19:19
Am I missing something? Is the transfer window closed already?


8.) 07 Jun 2017 13:22:42
Where has the adama traore link come from now? Ha
You don't know who the club wants, the papers don't know who the club wants.
You can't complete a transfer until the window opens, nothing isn't 100% until it's open.

Just take a little chill pill, sit back and gather some common sense lad.


9.) 07 Jun 2017 13:24:14
Theres arguments for both but neither mane or wij were first choice.

Also yout not exactly making a leap as drastic as ronny to traore.

Brandt, salah and gelson are all good wingers.

Salag the most productivr but also the older. Got 19 and 15.

Gelson got 6 goals and 14 assists.

Brandt got 4 and 11 assists.

Brandt and gelson had good seasons playing in top 6 teams.

Salah failed in the prem before so that's a big risk. He didn't settle.

Brandt and gelson could go either way.

Id go for

Salah 35 mil
Brandt 18/ 22mil
Gelson 23/ 25 mil

If itd true were actually paying more for gelson then that's worrying but i canr see it myself. Makes no sense. Think it will be for less than salah.


10.) 07 Jun 2017 13:31:52
Harry, no one is saying you can't complete a transfer before the window begins. What we are saying is that the knee jerk reactions (something you are known for) needs to stop cos really, the window is not open yet and negotiations are being undertaken so people should stop allowing the papers to wind them up with funny stories. And no, we are not interested in Adama Traore and Brandt is no longer an option.

Everyone just calm down and let the club do it's job instead of posting a bunch of comments based on conjecture and projection. No one (not even the papers) knows what is going on per the Ed's who give us updates and I would wait for them to update us instead of just acting like our hair is on fire every time. It's becoming pathetic.


11.) 07 Jun 2017 13:41:06
Use your common sense. The chances of Liverpool being miffed at 35m for Salah, but being open to 50m for this kid, are extremely slim.


12.) 07 Jun 2017 13:43:25
Stop believing everything you read mate, don't you ever learn!


13.) 07 Jun 2017 13:53:56
I've heard it all now.

Give it a rest mate, you're embarrassing yourself. If you had half a brain you'd be dangerous.


14.) 07 Jun 2017 14:07:56
Comes from the same people that got surprised by Salah ( never ever mentioned before ) and VVD ( Liverpool couldn't afford him anyways )
Transfer could happen just like that and interest could swift in seconds. I am not going to loose my sleep over this link. But I don't want this to turn into a reality.
I thought the club's plan B was Braga Silva!


15.) 07 Jun 2017 14:56:46
All fun and games ay.


16.) 07 Jun 2017 16:35:49
It may seem an overeaction and maybe that's what it is, but after 6 years of the people who run our club making nonsensical decisions regarding transfers, it feels like we are finally getting it right, i don't want us to repeat our mistakes.


17.) 07 Jun 2017 15:51:50
Questions for the eds I have read a few times recently that Mane wasnt our first choice. Who was our first choice ahead of Mane? I can't remember who we were linked with in his position last summer.

{Ed002's Note - Georges-Kevin N'Koudou, Dennis Praet, Ousmane Dembele and Lucas Vazquez were of interest but I would not say any were "first choice".}


18.) 07 Jun 2017 17:22:13
And mane is betywr than every single one.


19.) 07 Jun 2017 17:46:05
Er ousmane dembele is pretty special mate, he could genuinely become world class.


 

 

03 Jun 2017 12:01:47
With all these names flying about i have a couple of questions for the eds opinions on some of the players.

Firstly, brandt v salah. Personally i thought that salah would be the better option because he is a very pacy player and pace is what we lack in the wide areas, another mane if you will. He is also far more mature and seems to be adding consistency to his game now, and has come back from a career damaging move to chelsea to mature as a player. So how does everyone think he stacks up against brandt? Our transfer policy so far has been to buy players in their mid 20's with more experience and maturity, and it has worked excellently when we have done this. Is brandt just potential, or is he ready now? Is he better than salah, is he even what we need?

Secondly id just like to know the eds opinion on left back and centre back and who you feel are the best realistic options for each position. Again i'd like to see us take the route of buying players in their mid 20's who are more mature. I don't think van dijk can be worth anywhere near the money, he just seems to be an overhyped modern day defender who will not fix our problems. I'd personally like to see us get a steady left back like bertrand or hector, and a proper premier league centre back like gibson.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed001's Note - this is all stuff I have answered a number of times. I have not seen much of Brandt, certainly not enough to judge him or compare him with Salah.

Mendy is the best option for left back. Not sure about centre back, not sure there is one in the Prem I would go for to be honest. Though Gibson is the best of them.}


1.) 03 Jun 2017 12:31:18
I agree with ed001 we would be far better looking outside of england for defensive signings. Would love Manolas or Tah not seen if we are interested though. I feel VVD would not improve us as he does not concentrate fully and goes forward without thinking which woukd be bad for us. At Southampton they are set up more not to concede with 2 defensive midfielders whereas we are all about attacking leaving space in behind.


2.) 03 Jun 2017 12:54:49
VVD has all the tools to become the best CB in the league. Pace, power and He is excellent on the ball. He will bench Lovren for lifetime. He is terrific in the air. The player picked liverpool of all the biggies that were the queue. How often you see a big name player picks our club out from Chelsea and City?


3.) 03 Jun 2017 13:49:28
I think van dijk is serious quality. Klopp will have him fully focused.


4.) 03 Jun 2017 14:04:06
Thanks ed. Salah and mendy all day for me. Thatll do.

Signing mendy means milner can now add cover all over thr patk.

Signing salah means we now have coutijo in the middle so

Can, hendo, coutinho, wij, milner, grujic, lallana, firmino can play 10. Well stocked.

Even lucas, stewart can do a job in the earlier cuo runs.


5.) 03 Jun 2017 14:15:25
If mendy or a quality left back had have signed id have pushed Milner to right back.


 

 

25 Jan 2017 11:07:59
William carvalho never really impressed me at the euro's and seemed very overated, i fail to see what he would bring that we don't already have with henderson, can and wijnaldum.

On the goalkeeping issue, just throwing this one out there, should we not be adopting the same approach barcelona did with ter stegen?

Buy an experienced goalkeeper to play for a few years, but is also willing to regularly drop to the bench to allow the younger goalkeeper to play? This would surely be beneficial for both the long and short term. And given begovic wants to leave chelsea, i can't think of anybody better to fill the role for us. It just doesn't make any sense to me that our backup goalkeeper is someone we are equally as terrified to play.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 25 Jan 2017 11:19:39
Carvallho is a beast of a player. He would bring stability into that midfield which gets exposed every now and then when someone runs at you on counter. He is a solid tackler, poaitonally aound and has a well built physique ideal for the PL. A fine passer of the ball. He is a mix of Matic and Kante and most importantly a finished article at 23.

With Ward returning from loan in summer, I can't see us buying a GK unless you are selling both Migs and Karius.


2.) 25 Jan 2017 12:11:19
Not sure what you expected from him at the euros? He won the damn thing playing in midfield so he didn't do too bad there cos you could argue every player is overrated for not winning it! It's not a great place to judge players- if we did we would have sold handerson and lallana on the back of it. carvalho is not the finished article but very good at multiple things. I actually think him and Henderson could competed for the same spot or either one could be moved out to the left / right. We've seen what a pinnacle role Henderson plays and we just can't replace him when he's out. I have no idea if this is true but WC will add to our first team. If he comes it won't be to warm the bench. I think he'd be a very good buy.


3.) 25 Jan 2017 13:10:49
He is much better than anyone we have defensively and can play from deep. He would allow Henderson to push forward alongside lallana if he was to come, which I very much doubt. He wouldn't be the ideal midfielder I would go for due to the way we play but he would certainly be a better one than what we have now. He improves the first team which is certainly what we need in the middle, it's no mystery that we need a better midfielder than wiji and can for the first team. I think the pair of them are decent players but they don't bring enough to the first team defensively or offensively and are far too inconsistent. I would say the hendo, wiji, lallana partnership works more often than not, but we will still concede bundles of goals with that open midfield. We sacrifice stability for fluidity. Can should be learning his trade better from the bench and used against certain opposition, it's clear he's not ready to start week in week out because he's missing fundamentals to his game. If he doesn't accept this and doesn't sign a new contract etc loan or sell him, he is in no position to do that. A good player but he wouldn't get into any other midfield of the top teams in the prem.

There is nothing overrated about William Carvalho, Anonymous. Nothing whatsoever. The guy is a great player, end of. You don`t have big clubs all over Europe tracking you for 3 years if you are a dud or overrated. I saw him at the Euros and I disagree with your assessment. I watched him closely as I had never seen him play and the guy is as strong as an ox YET as technically gifted in the DM role as Patrick Vieira.

He is physical, can pass long or short with either foot, tackle and cover a lot of ground with deceptive speed. Whether he won the Euros or not is irrelevant cos Baggio didn`t win the World Cup YET he was one of the stars of it and one of the best players I have ever seen in my lifetime. Will we get him? I doubt it. But to say he`s overrated, is way off the mark. As for the GK issue, let`s wait and see in the summer as all the top GK`s are already taken and they won`t be moving anywhere.

I agree AW. He's playing in a low quality league and when I've seen him playing in the cl/ el he's failed to impress me. Also he may be as strong as an ox but is incredibly slow and turns even slower. The issue with Lucas playing in that position is his lack of pace, so I fail to see how Carvalho would be an improvement in that position. He wouldn't suit our high pressing game either. If he comes in I'll support him, but I think he's not the right player for us.

As Swish said, the euros/ international football is a terrible marker for premier league suitability. However, I thought he was very effective in the Euros. I have to be honest it wasn't to the point where I craved him for LFC, but he performed his role at that level very well.
He seems great at reading the game so maybe that will make up for a 'perceived lack of pace', however, I've never seen a player skin him for pace. I think his 'pace' hasn't been properly tested in the league he's played in.

Depends which 'pace' you're referring to.
His speed will have been tested time and again from very quick players, should be easy enough to find out whether he suffers a lack of pace.
Whether he can keep up with the pace of the PL is a different matter.

Nobody has baulked at any prices, we just chose to avoid players that weren't as good as others and let you sign them instead, the delusion is real.

The owners can be as miffed as they want, while they sit in their ivory tower on the other side of the world, only turning an eye towards lfc when something goes disastrously wrong.

They may not run the club but they employ the circus of total idiots who do and have done for 7 years. They do not have the emotional investment to strive to make these changes at lfc to make the club better. They can complain all thry want but they don't really care and i haven't seen any motivation to change it. The problems start with them.

So weird, i was literally just about to ask this very question😂

Is it safe to say that if a player does not hand in a transfer request then he is very much money orientated and not that intersted in the move?

When hendo does not play, our performance level takes a nose dive. Its a fact.

Sorry but that's bull, bale is a fantastic player, his final season at tottenham was the only time i have ever seen a genuine one man team. I'd say you should watch him more often but alas his injuries are regular and it is a great shame. Regardless id take him at liverpool in a heartbeat, one of the best in the world when fit.
