Sky Germany apparently stating we are back in contract talks with Emre Can, can the eds confirm this? Or is he a goner?

Don't mind so much if he goes but it would be better to get some money for him at some point!


{Ed025's Note - i think hes a goner boydy..

1.) 04 Jan 2018 13:30:09
I'll be gutted if he goes, he always does so well for me on FIFA : (.

2.) 04 Jan 2018 13:41:01
He's going and good luck to him.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 14:25:11
Can is gone, to much water under that bridge. Klopp wouldn't guarentee playing time and exit Claus.

4.) 04 Jan 2018 14:44:24
By now life goes on.

5.) 04 Jan 2018 14:46:27
I thought Can was supposed to remain in the club until summer when he'll walk for free? Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure he is "supposed" to but I expect that he will.}

6.) 04 Jan 2018 14:49:31
Not quick or mobile enough.
File under Charlie Adam, Lucas Leiva (post-knee op), Suso etc etc.
Hopefully the Ox gets a bit more playing time now.

7.) 04 Jan 2018 15:22:21

What? Did you seriously just compare Can to Charlie Adam?
I've always liked Can. With his powerful storming runs, neat footwork that looks clumsy but somehow comes off, his rushes of blood to the head and gorgeous slick hair. I'm not going to start pretending otherwise should he leave. It happens. And I don't think one of the biggest clubs in Europe were too interested in Charlie Beefcake Adam.

8.) 04 Jan 2018 16:52:43
Charlie Adam's corners alone were worth £10m though, Meister 😂

I like my men a bit rough around the edges, and Charlie was rougher than a Glaswegian alleyway.

9.) 04 Jan 2018 18:12:42
bumped into him in san carlo a couple times, charlie adam certainly was/ is rough around the edges, his missus though, anything but ;0.



11 Aug 2017 15:27:58
If coutinho goes could the club look to Alexis Sanchez?

Probably not but thought I'd ask anyway! 😂



{Ed002's Note - Sanchez is not going to want to move to Liverpool.}

1.) 11 Aug 2017 19:57:47
Wishful thinking, would be funny if that happened.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 20:57:28
What about Riyad Mahrez? He doesn't want to stay at Leicester. quality player, PL player of season the year b4 last.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 22:13:06
I wouldn't want Mahrez anywhere near the club.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 23:46:17
Problems with South American players

Problems with South amton players.

Ronnie Whelan had problems with Southend players.

Does anyone see a pattern?

5.) 12 Aug 2017 00:30:51
Stop asking for wingers. we don't need wingers. Stop the nonsense.



13 Jun 2017 09:00:04
Morning eds

I saw yesterday ed001 you said a verdict from the fa was expected yesterday regarding a transfer ban, was there any announcement?

Also I know it's been asked before but seeing links to lacazette from arsenal at around £60mil, any interest from us? Would be a great signing! Or is it just wishful thinking!



{Ed001's Note - nothing yet mate. The FA moves in mysterious ways mate.

I don't know of any interest from us in Lacazette.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 09:41:54
Doubt Lacazette would move to a club that has'nt qualified for the CL.

2.) 13 Jun 2017 09:43:10
Ed. What's your verdict on Lacazette? He has been a huge goal scorer for a few years, available now it seems as well, but he's not really linked with the top clubs you'd expect.
Chelsea, Juve, Utd all looking for strikers. We are. Real Madrid if selling Morata, Man City never say no to a striker and Spurs signed Jansen, so they we're looking last summer. Milan are boosting this summer.
I'm just surprised a stampede isn't happening. Is he just not that good?

{Ed001's Note - no idea I have not seen a lot of him.}

3.) 13 Jun 2017 10:31:20
I have always thought that too, didn't make the French euro squad either which also got me thinking is he actually that good?
I don't watch the French league but he looks quality on highlights, quick and a good finisher.

4.) 13 Jun 2017 11:43:44
Thanks for the quick reply ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

5.) 13 Jun 2017 13:04:44

Lacazette not making the France euro squad costed them the Euro cup.

Giroud played well but he is still a tree. His replacement Gignac was the same, just more clumsy.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 13:52:36
Ed, not sure if anyone has mentioned this (had a quick look) but that ex City guy on SSN yesterday said that he is sure if 2000 deals were done this window, 1999 would need to be investigated by the FA for tapping up and that the rules are so outdated! Whether they are outdated or not, surely they still need to be adhered too, but if true, I was surprised at the level this law is allegedly being flouted! Like I said before, we've still been idiots, but is it as rife as he thought?

{Ed001's Note - it is not as rife as that. There are very few innocent clubs, but no way is it that common. Plenty are not even set up until the last second and the players are not high up on the target list so would in no way have been tapped up. People are just exaggerating for effect.}

7.) 13 Jun 2017 15:48:20
Thanks for the reply Ed, I did wonder if that was an exaggeration or not.

{Ed001's Note - just like Carragher, they are protecting the club they support. Citeh are one of the major culprits in recent years, not just with players either!}

8.) 13 Jun 2017 16:00:32
Not just with players Ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, Pep was tapped up for years before he finally agreed to take charge there.}

Devastated is the only way of putting it this morning, can't believe we lost like that! We did not deserve to lose like that! Not saying we meant to win but to lose in that way is just not what the team and is fans deserved!

This will make or break Karius, feel for the lad but those two mistakes you could forgive over the course of a season, but in one game! In the champions league final! Lad needs support from the team and fans to get over it, if he is Klopp's no 1 come the start of the season then he will have my support too! But his chances are surely running out!

Need Fekir and Dembele to sign in the next few days to cheer me up now 😂.




13 Apr 2018 09:46:03
Hi eds,

I know you don't like talking about money a lot but hey ho though I'd ask anyway!

So much is made of the "champions league money", how much does a club get for being in the champions league and is there much difference in total earnings for say going out at the quarter finals to winning the tournament? And do club sponsors etc pay more if a club reaches a certain stage of the tournament?

Cheers, and I understand if you don't want to answer!


{Ed002's Note - In terms of sponsors it varies club to club. Liverpool's deal with Standard Chartered is structured the other way around (not uncommon) where they are paid less (£5M) if the club don't qualify for the Champions League. Other sponsors may have a deal wherby they pay more but it would be a trade off, typically against additional marketing. It can open the door to new sponsors of course, but again this is on a case-by-case basis. In terms of income from the CL, for this season it is as follows:

Clubs in first qualifying round but going no further: €220,000
Clubs in second qualifying round but going no further: €320,000
Clubs in third qualifying round but going no further: €420,000
Clubs knocked out in the play-off round: €800,000
Domestic champions failing to qualify for the play-offs or group stage get an addition payment of €260,000
Qualifying for the group stage: €12.7m
For each group stage win: €1.5m
For each group stage draw: €500,000
Teams competing in the round of 16: €6m
Teams competing in the quarter finals: €6.5m
Teams competing in the semi-finals: €7.5m
Losing finalist: €11m
Champions League winners: €15.5m
There are also “market pool”related payments distributed according to the proportional value of each television market for games in the group stage on. This is a total of something like €480M to €520M – so could result in significant additional income for clubs. It can be disproportionately allocated if those sides which are a major television draw face each other, and it takes account of previous years rankings, previous season’s domestic league positions, how many sides from each nation partake and how the other sides perform (giving the national ranking coefficients). As such it is not possible to say what each club will receive and even trying to work it out after the amounts are declared is very difficult.}

1.) 13 Apr 2018 10:28:04
Top answer Ed thanks

If RBL don't qualify for the CL next season does the Keita transfer cost LFC less money? I had read somewhere it was about £15m.

{Ed002's Note - No. Liverpool committed to pay a fixed fee and have already paid a very significant additional payment to secure agreement for the transfer.}

2.) 13 Apr 2018 10:31:50
Thank you ed2! Very interesting!

3.) 13 Apr 2018 10:40:05
For instance because of market pool and Italy only having Juve in the latter stages (spain have 2-3 teams) of the cl they made they got more money than Real Madrid despite not winning it.

So basically the further you go in the CL with lessor teams form your league the more you will get from the market pool.

{Ed002's Note - There is no "basically", it is complex and depends on several factors - as I have explained.}

4.) 13 Apr 2018 11:44:54
Thanks for the info Ed2.

5.) 13 Apr 2018 12:36:17
Another prime example of why this site (thanks to Eds and posters) is the best on the net. Great question and brilliant answer. Have been reading this site for well over ten years and have never seen anything close to what we are lucky enough to have here. Thanks to all.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

6.) 13 Apr 2018 13:38:52
Sizeable chunk of income for this little cup run then - I like it 😀.



01 Feb 2018 11:24:08
So who are the club looking at for the summer window eds? 😛😛.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 12:06:01
Give them a chance mate. They were rushed off their feet for the last few days.

Everything you need to know is in old posts.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 12:32:52
I assume Boydy was being amusing markp08.ever heard of emoticons?

3.) 01 Feb 2018 12:43:43
lol mark hahaha you took his post wrong I think mate lol not that I haven't done it before mind ;)

4.) 01 Feb 2018 15:39:00
Fottballers I'd imagine, mind you bin men would probably do a better job than Mignolet in goal.



26 Jul 2017 20:05:21
Ed002, been catching up on the days posts and thought your insight into a pan european league was a great read, you said three English teams may take the initial plunge, is it safe to say that would be the Manchester clubs and Chelsea with maybe another 3 to follow, arsenal, spurs and Liverpool?



{Ed002's Note - No it is not those three.}

1.) 26 Jul 2017 20:48:32
Interesting! I'm guessing your not going to elaborate on who it may be? :p regardless, it was a great read, insight like that is what I love about this site!

Keep up the good work eds! It's much appreciated by most of us!

2.) 26 Jul 2017 21:36:51
Burnley, West Brom, and Everton would be my nominations.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 07:41:21
It's a terrible idea dreamt up by folk with £ signs for eyes and considers the fans not one little bit.



20 Jun 2017 17:22:10
Any chance of one of your lovely big transfer updates eds?



{Ed002's Note - I am travelling throughout June so it won,t be for a while.}

1.) 20 Jun 2017 20:38:41
Where u off to ed002?
Harry is planning a new stalking trip.

Who cares? The lad deserves a chance to get his career back on track and he wasn’t going to get it here!

It’s not our money that he’s bought with and sold for!

If we’re going to win the league we need to be winning games that start at various times, not just 3pm and Sunday fixtures!

A highly paid team of professional footballers should be able to perform at their best no matter the kickoff time!

Time to stop moaning about daft things like this and get on with it!

Except he wouldn’t have been expecting jones to score an own goal, we but different than if it had been a spurs player who was in Jones position, don’t think you can really criticise De Gea for that one.
