Hi Ed002,

Any chance of a transfer low down like the one on the Arsenal page?

Thanks for all you hard work and patience with us!

Crooky.

Thank you Ed002.

Thanks Ed002, you are still my favourite 😉

Sly sports says Lallana is heading to Liverpool for a medical. Soory Eds I don't like to ask but do you know if Liverpool have agreed to meet the asking price?

Thanks for everything Eds, especially through the farce that is Suarez

Crooky

Crooky

{Ed001's Note - we have certainly agreed to meet a price, I don't believe it was the full asking price as Adam himself has asked for the move to go through. Bit of a change for him, worrying change if you are a Southampton fan, as he was, and I emphasis was, happy to stay there if they were going to invest in the squad. Suggests they are just balancing the books there now, not looking to progress as they were previously.}


1.) Thanks Ed

Much obliged

Crooky


2.) According to Radio 5live the fee was £25m

{Ed001's Note - which would be £5m less than they were asking initially.}


3.) ED001, do you think that has anything to do with the ownership being inherited?

It's a real shame to see their squad being picked apart like this, but I would love to see Lallana at Liverpool next season.

{Ed001's Note - everything to do with it mate. Markus was the one who wanted to invest, his daughter is not so keen as it is not her labour of love, so to speak. She wants to be financially sound, whereas Markus was happy to take risks and invest heavily.}


4.) What do you mean being "picked apart"? The squads just simply relocating to Anfield!


5.) 27 Jun 2014 17:24:46
Sorry, but your understanding of Saints finances is not based on fact.
The club have stated REPEATEDLY that all funds received from players leaving will be available to the manager to re-invest in the squad. Not my definition of balancing the books, which can be achieved through other revenue. Adam asking for the move to go through has nothing to do with it, this is a totally different situation to Rickie. RK has sanctioned the deal because he feels he can strengthen the team with the revenue.
It may be wise to see who Saints are signing to replace these players and then you may not only see what the clubs strategy is, together with the way RK wants the team to play. It will be slightly different to the way MP wanted to play and some of the players he thought world-beaters are not necessarily essential to RKs plan. I would have thought that supporters of LFC were well experienced with such changes.

Saints plans for progress have been outlined fairly recently, and I expect you will hear more from RK when he is up and running.

But not just balancing the books and certainly looking to progress.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so mate, but you are guilty of a lot of wishful thinking there. It was not Koeman's wish to sell him, he wanted to keep him. I will stick to listening to those involved over you thanks.}

Ed0025,

What do you make of our transfer business so far this summer and how do think Everton are doing in 5he market, bit OTT for Richarlison?

Crooky.

Crooky

{Ed025's Note - i think liverpool have bought brilliantly crooky and see them as the major threat to city this coming season, we have been a bit slow in the market to be honest but that is with changing manager, DOF and the world cup effect i suspect mate richarlison is way over the top but i see it as partly compensation for silva and to keep them sweet mate..


1.) 23 Jul 2018 20:52:18
Transfer fees are a thing of the past now. I believe we should be more worried about player wages.

Look at Raheem Sterling. Pep wants rid but which club will be willing to even match his obscene wages.

Let's not forget, player wages make up majority of club expenditure.

Who would have thought that Max Meyer is struggling to find a club LOL.


2.) 23 Jul 2018 21:05:45
I think he'll do well at Everton. Got the feeling he didn't like it at Watford. I remember watching focus when they signed him. Watford keeper (gomez? ) was showing richarlison round and his phone rang, troy Deene comes running over going "that's a fine! Yeah, he's fined" commentator asks how much yye fine is a Deene says "£100"

What a way to treat your new signing.

I also think Deeney is a bully who didn't like it when the new lad was getting all the praise. Stopped playing him in and always pushed him out wide with his passes.

It's too much money really but I think hell do well.


3.) 23 Jul 2018 21:26:45
Thing is Ed25 in my opinion, if he is coached well, he could be worth that 50 million and then some in a couple of years mate. I think the lad will do well at Everton. Good luck to the lad, he has time on his side to start fresh and make a name for himself which I believe he will.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to think so salah and we are backing silva,s judgement which shows some trust from the owners mate, but time will tell as it always does..


4.) 23 Jul 2018 21:28:37
He’s a good fit for Everton. They need something to give them midfield spark. Fee is bonkers.


5.) 23 Jul 2018 21:43:48
True Ed25 mate, I like Silva, as I said the other day on the Everton page, success won't come overnight but I do believe if fans are patient enough, Silva will help Everton incredibly. Once he's got HIS desired team which will take a good few transfer windows then I see you doing really well. Good luck to Everton mate, well unless it's against Liverpool of course ;) .

{Ed025's Note - of course mate...cheers..


6.) 23 Jul 2018 21:46:45
Hopefully for you boys Everton will play some football now Fat Scam has gone Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - well it certainly wont do no harm FMS..


7.) 23 Jul 2018 22:08:05
I rate him, his finishing was poor, but he improves that a bit and he has enough chances last season to score 10/ 15.


8.) 24 Jul 2018 03:19:47
Everton will do well to keep Lookman even if they get Richarlison. Lookman has that X factor to change games single handedly and will be a big player if managed properly. Them two on the wings will give Everton a lot of firepower and pace upfront.

{Ed025's Note - keeping lookman will be the problem IB, the guy wants assurances for game time and thats not forthcoming at the moment so he could very well be playing elsewhere this season, shame really as i think he is talented but you cant have the lunatics running the asylum so im with silva mate..


9.) 24 Jul 2018 09:00:53
You have lunatics running the asylum when u sign players like Balotelli, Benteke etc. Lookman just wants some assurances over game time and he has the talent to back it up. He was very good for RBL last season and Silva should give him those assurances as Everton have a damn good young winger on their hands. The kid will be worth more than 50 million pounds by next summer if he plays regularly.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately IB i dont make them decisions, but what i will say is that a succession of everton managers have failed to give him a run in the side, now i dont know if that says more about him or them, im a fan but dont pretend to know what goes on behind the scenes mate, i really hope he stays but we have to back the manager as he sees him day in day out..

Whatever happens Reds, I love you all for making today so memorable. Ed001 you are a legend for setting up this site. Ed002 I love the rodeo clown and ed0033 for turning red for a day. What a day, we go again

Here we go ladies and gents. Let battle commence. I'm 37 and so excited, didn't think we would be here just yet but I'm a believer. Time to finish the job.

Crooky.

Crooky

1.) 26 May 2018 11:09:01
The excitement never goes away mate, I am close to the big Birthday myself but still running round Kiev with all the lads, as excited as I was when I was 18.
Please the red men, perform at the top of your game and bring Ol Big Ears back to the homeland.


2.) 26 May 2018 11:14:46
Crocky let the battle commence indeed. Im in my 30’s but feel like a little kid, let's just hope our lads are focus and get the job done.


3.) 26 May 2018 12:47:54
We can do this guys. Every thought I have ends up coming back to tonight. The nerves, the excitement. Come on the red men.

Question for Ed002,

When / if the breakaway league happens, what do you see happening to the football streaming rights? I expect the big broadcasters to pick up the breakaway for silly money but is this when you think companies like amazon to pick up the premier league or will clubs start streaming themselves?

At the moment Liverpool are not included in the English teams talking about this, so does this mean we will be batting it out with Watford to win the league or how could we get in to the breakaway league.

Thanks for your time.

Regards

Crooky.

Crooky

{Ed002's Note - The likes of Amazon and Google will be looking at broadcast rights in the soon to be happening auction - but not as the major provider. When the eventual breakaway happens the big money goes with those clubs and the clubs have already decided that they will negotiate their television and media rights, rights of distribution via other streams etc.. . The Premier League will eventually need to be reorganised and will see a loss of revenue - but it will still get more than the other leagues. Right now there is zero chance of Liverpool being involved in the breakaway initially.}


1.) 10 Feb 2018 11:18:09
I hope we're not involved ever, to some extent. The break away league is turning it's back on the fans who go to the games. How can away fans be expected to go to Milan, then Madrid, then Munich potentially all in a single month and across a 6-9 month period?

Having said that, not being involved in it will be bad for the club's exposure and the global fanbase will likely fall.

I think this break away will ruin football to be honest. Might have to start getting into Rugby just in case 😂.


2.) 10 Feb 2018 11:43:53
MK, well if you move you will at least enjoy the sight of good referees much more often and always respect from players for the referees lol.


3.) 10 Feb 2018 11:59:43
Totally agree mk. Something has to change but I think a breakaway league is just too far a step.


4.) 10 Feb 2018 11:11:25
Ed2, if you don't mind the follow up question, I think you've mentioned a second tier of teams that could join the breakaway at a later date. Is Liverpool in that group?

{Ed002's Note - That group doesn't exist - what may subsequently happen is a second pan European division may be added but there is resistance from a number of sides to that already.}


5.) 10 Feb 2018 11:13:19
Forgive my ignorance, but why wouldn’t we be involved edd2.an what teams are involved 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not part of the on going discussions and they won't be included in them. I don't want to get in to explaining this in any detail.}


6.) 10 Feb 2018 11:30:48
I was thinking the same MK, I go to the home games and have CL on my season ticket. I don’t go to so many away games these days since I became a Dad, so traveling abroad would be totally out of the question lol.

Ed002, which English teams would be involved Ed002 and what’s the criteria to qualify?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant which sides are involved and there is no "qualification" - the sides involved in the regular discussions are the sides that will be involved.}


7.) 10 Feb 2018 14:08:58
Without sounding bolshy Ed2, it’s an important question for me as I wouldn’t mind knowing, if you don’t want to share the information then no problem. There must be a certain criteria / reason as to why a club is or isn’t involved.

{Ed002's Note - The vast majority of clubs aren’t involved.}


8.) 10 Feb 2018 14:31:56
Politician in your spare time ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Rodeo cowboy in my spare time.}


9.) 10 Feb 2018 17:32:02
The breakaway teams will simply become like the Harlem Globetrotters. It will be a farce with no away fans.

It will hopefully lead to the football bubble bursting and it getting back to being a game enhanced by money rather than corporations named after cities.

{Ed002's Note - Of course they won't. It is a natural progression and there will be no shortage of away fans.}

Hi ed002,

First of all thanks for the work on the site, your insight is fantastic as always.

If Klopp wasn't in charge today who would be the manager/ coach you would turn too. An upcoming name or a well established?

Regards

Crooky.

Crooky

{Ed002's Note - I would have taken Jorge Jesus at the time. I am not going to get in to who I think should replace Klopp until nearer the time when he is being replaced.}


1.) 13 Aug 2017 17:47:20
Which could be soon if we keep conceding soft goals!


2.) 13 Aug 2017 17:51:32
If Pep hadn't screwed Bayern around, we could easily have ended up with Ancelotti, with Klopp at Bayern. Football's a funny game sometimes.


3.) 13 Aug 2017 17:57:13
And there is every chance klopp will still go to Bayern in 2019.


4.) 13 Aug 2017 18:05:35
Unless Klopp pulls off something spectacular at LFC this season I can't see Bayern being that interested to be honest.

I’ve been on here since just before the takeover, I remember the site crashing for a few days, there were that many people trying to get on and get info!

All the Ed’s do an amazing job on the site and it gives us supporters a great place to talk about football in general.

Think most of us would be lost without the site!

Announcing the teams will give the opposition a chance to look for any advantages / weaknesses :-)

Good luck to all - do us proud and don't forget the shin pads!
