Hi Eds, there are currently 2 contrasting reports out there. One saying that Coutinho is close to signing the deal with Barcelona and that Liverpool have accepted their bid. Another report is saying that we are resisting his sale and only a forced moved from Coutinho will see it happening as Klopp and the board would want to keep him. Obviously someone is reporting bullcrap here. Do you know which one is the real deal?

DAPred

{Ed001's Note - we rejected their initial bid, no deal is agreed yet.}


1.) 09 Aug 2017 05:32:54
But they're expected to come back. we also would like to keep him, but if Coutinho forces the move we may be prepared to sell at the right price as we're unlikely to force him to stay against his will.

Geez is it so hard to keep up ;)


2.) 09 Aug 2017 06:43:33
The Spanish and Brazilian journalists are saying Coutinho deal is agreed while the English journalists insists Liverpool won't sell or haven't even held any meetings with Barcelona.

We will see in the coming days who was right.


3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:52:52
The Spanish and Brazilian media are just posting rubbish to get their fans and Barcelona fans wound up. According to Guillem Balague via Twitter, no deal has been agreed by LFC and he stated that our stance has not changed.

Per the Echo, Barcelona did not meet with our officials to do a deal and no new bid has been made and no bid has been accepted. Klopp and FSG are standing firm.

On the contrary per German outlet Bild, Barcelona officials went to Germany yesterday to do a deal for Dembele of BVB but Dortmund want reportedly 150m euros hence, almost 3/ 4 of the Neymar money. Sky Sports have daid the exact same things. This is the situation as it stands.


4.) 09 Aug 2017 13:45:52
There are also reports that Coutinho is feigning injury and has not got a back injury and is not willing to train with the club. It's all nonsense with each journalist trying to guess the breaking story to look like the knew what was happening. kind of like half on here when they were claiming to be itk in Keita and gave us numerous dates he was going to join. Some even changed their usernames 🙈🙈.

Hi EDs, it is being reported that Inter made a 35mil bid for Mane. Not sure how true but I reckon it is fake news as 35mil for Mane is a joke in today's market. It would be a waste of everybody's time if it was true. They might have better luck bidding 35mil for Sakho :)

DAPred

{Ed001's Note - it is nonsense, why would a team bid less than we paid for him? Unless it means pounds not euros, in which case they work in euros, so it is clearly nonsense anyway. Just ignore it, the player is not available for sale.}


1.) 01 Aug 2017 04:40:53
Cannot believe Inter's cheek (if a bid has been made in the first place) . Or the media is just being incompetent as always.


2.) 01 Aug 2017 06:02:25
Ah so this is what it feels like to be a Southampton fan during the transfer window 😉.


3.) 01 Aug 2017 07:06:53
Media see a team struggling to recruit and there best player linked elsewhere and jump on the band wagon as if we are a sinking ship.

Inter haven't even got champions league have they. The competition everyone wants to play in.


4.) 01 Aug 2017 07:40:52
Leeee that's a good question. We've been told for years that the top players didn't come to us because they wanted to play in the CL. This window however doesn't back that statement up.


5.) 01 Aug 2017 08:23:04
Jayden how hasn't it backed that up.? Salah, Van Dijk, Keita are all in that top bracket of players and want to or are playing for us. its other reasons we haven't got them all. i think macca said even Mendy was willing to come to us. the clubs dealings is the major issue this window and other bad past dealings effecting our chance of getting Sessegnon from Fulham, not the players themselves wanting to play for us.


6.) 01 Aug 2017 10:35:48
But yet salah is the only one that's signed.


7.) 01 Aug 2017 12:45:46
If we finish top four this year ( or win it which I'm optimistic about ) maybe higher than 4th. I think any players reluctant to talk with us will change tune. Could be seen, by outsiders, as a one off this year. Any player joining a top English team is taking a bit of a gamble in terms of champions league these days.


8.) 01 Aug 2017 13:15:28
It is, perhaps, the worst transfer article I've ever seen a paper come up with. At least make it £50m or something even remotely believable (I'm not valuing him at that price before I get a ton of abuse) . As Ed said, why would a club bid less/ equal to what we paid?! He had a superb season last year. It's either invented from thin air or inter are worse than us at negotiations.


9.) 01 Aug 2017 16:30:31
Smurf out of the 3 players you named we've signed 1 of them. Good point that mate.


10.) 01 Aug 2017 23:08:28
U obviously didn't understand wat im saying mate. its not about the players wanting to join us cos all of them have been willing to. its other reasons why the others haven't joined.


11.) 04 Aug 2017 04:48:51
Its from the Express basically the 90minsdotcom of the newspaper world. If they told me grass was green I wouldn't believe them.


 

 

16 Apr 2015 08:27:32
hi Eds, I read that Arsenal are also interested to sign Milner. I'm sure they will have the upper hand if it is true as they are almost guaranteed a CL spot. Any truth in the rumour?

DAPred

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from them.}


1.) 16 Apr 2015 09:23:36
No one else showing real intetest at this stage then ed? I think he would be a good addition if we can get him, do you?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City were looking for James Milner to agree a new contract but they accepted that he won't. There is interest from Valencia (although I think they have now moved on), Roma (with rekindled interest), Inter and from Liverpool - his wage demands might be an issue.}

Hi EDs, Barca's General Manager is openly saying that Coutinho is 'close' to signing but FSG and Klopp has insisted that he is not for sale. If we are really not interested to accept any bid from Barca, couldn't we report Barcelona for unsettling our player with such comments?

DAPred

{Ed001's Note - unsettling our player? You really have not kept up with the situation, it is Couts that wanted to go to them. They have not needed to unsettle him as his agent has made sure to tout him to the Catalans at every opportunity, as it is the move Couts wants. We are just posturing to get the best deal.}


1.) 17 Aug 2017 05:43:15
Surely it's just a matter of time now and Barca's results against Real might make them more desperate to get the deal done asap. I understand the lure of playing for them but this could be one of their weakest teams for a while it might not turn out to be the dream move he hopes. I do wish him all the best let's hope we be very unliverpool like and spend the money wisely on top quality in positions we need.


2.) 17 Aug 2017 05:57:27
Coutinho will be going and we knew this a couple of seasons ago.

Barcelona will up the bid and he will be off, then the money will be used on van dijk and keita.


3.) 17 Aug 2017 06:03:03
I agree with you I think Barcelona are in a transitional phase, their best players over the last 5 years are all approaching 30 or older and they are not bringing through the same young players they used to. Unfortunately for him he'll be joining them at the wrong time.

{Ed001's Note - his choice to do so at the end of the day, but I do agree and I have to wonder why his advisors are not telling him the same thing.}


4.) 17 Aug 2017 06:32:18
Both Barcelona and Coutinho are about to make a massive mistake in my opinion.


5.) 17 Aug 2017 06:58:47
Having watched the game ed, I don't want Rakatic. He is all the things you said he is, slow and passive to say the least. Shows how poor they are as they had him and Gomes both off the surplus list playing. Woukd rather just the money.

{Ed001's Note - I do wonder what happened to him, he is not that old that it should have affected him yet.}


6.) 17 Aug 2017 07:29:08
He's staying at LFC 👍.


7.) 17 Aug 2017 07:29:18
To be fair to Rakitic, he's had to do the running for five extra players for three years now, so it's no wonder his legs have gone.


8.) 17 Aug 2017 07:35:14
I can't understand why anyone would want Rakitic in the deal. Would be a really bad deal. He just doesn't look like he has the legs to play in top flight competition.


9.) 17 Aug 2017 08:02:29
I agree about rakitic. Looked ineffective but so did all there players. Even messi and suarez had little effect. On the other hand how good were madrid! Luka Modric is such a classy player. One of the best for me.


10.) 17 Aug 2017 08:11:29
Is this possibly why neymar jumped ship ed, because he realised they were on the decline or was that purely about money?

{Ed001's Note - that was 100% about money.}


11.) 17 Aug 2017 08:29:34
Didn't need to watch yesterday's game to know that Rakitic is crap. He has been crap for a few seasons now and players like him, Gomez, Turan, Vidal (dross players), Masche, Pique, Alba (all over the hill) are the reasons why Barcelona will be seeing RM's dust this season and the next few to come. As for Cou, Ed has said we are just trying to get the best deal and Cou has poisoned the waters here and he will have too own that part of this saga.


12.) 17 Aug 2017 08:35:35
Ok i see, and with agents fees etc it must have turned out to be too good to resist especially with them all having problems with the tax man at Barcelona lol. Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - and his dad likes to get paid.}


13.) 17 Aug 2017 08:49:03
Agree 110% BingoRed. The only thing that concerns me is that we may well get close to 150 million euros, but then how do you spend that with about a week of the transfer window to go? The sensible thing would have been to do what Everton did, make the purchases that you want to make, then if you know that you are going to sell the family silver, at least you won't get mugged by all and sundry because they know you have a wallet full of cash. Every team that we then approach for players will try and rinse us if they know we are cash rich because of Coutinho. I wonder if anyone at the club has any acumen at all.


14.) 17 Aug 2017 09:38:21
"Just posturing to get the best deal". Sounds quite final ed😂🤔.


15.) 17 Aug 2017 11:18:43
Dennis, you may be correct there. The way it will be is that when Cou is finally sold, other teams will stick us for every penny of that Cou cash and we will be worse for it as we may have to overpay to get our targets, which is the worst scenario possible.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 16:34:08
Seems like the transfer request is true. Gutted that he is forcing a move away from Liverpool. I guess when clubs like Barca/ Real come knocking, it'll surely unsettle players. Just wonder why Coutinho signed a new contract without a release clause if he was looking to engineer a move away from Anfield?

As a fan, I'm utterly disappointed and I'm sure it will impact the team but we'll just have to soldier on. We've been trough this when Torres, Suarez and Sterling left. It'll take time to rebuild but there's nothing much we can do about it.

DAPred

1.) 11 Aug 2017 16:50:21
He signed it because of an increase in wages and a signing on bonus. Same thing Suarez did. It's kind of ridiculous to give such a reward to a player and then 5 months later they hand in a TR. Part of me wants to sell him and be rid, part of me doesn't want him to put the shirt on again. And part of me wants to keep him and forget all this happened in 2 months.


 

 

09 Aug 2017 02:38:24
Unless Coutinho forces a move, I think it would be rather stupid to sell him even for the 120mil that some sources are reporting. Yes, that's a lot of money but we don't really need it? Say we went ahead to sell him, who are we going to get as his replacement? Anyone decent is going to cost us a chunk of that money we'll get for coutinho. its a chain effect. We will demand more from Barcelona and other clubs will demand more from us. So at the end of the day, if we re-invest the money from Coutinho's sale, where does it leave us? If RBL can resist the money, I hope we'll do the same.

DAPred

1.) 09 Aug 2017 06:41:55
I hope we do indeed resist the sale of Coutinho, but from past experiences, Liverpool always are ready for a deal if enough money is offered.


2.) 09 Aug 2017 07:05:00
I hear ya, but what if we found a bargain replacement? Is Lanzini good enough for example and at what cost? Can he be replaced from within? Can the money go towards other needed positions such as a top CB?
I'm just happy the season is about to start.


3.) 09 Aug 2017 07:14:08
We don't need it?
Both the Keita and VVD deal have failed because we are not willing to pay to get them over the line, yes the others teams want over the odds but that is always the case when Liverpool come knocking.

As much as I would love to keep Coutinho, I am beginning to look at what we could do with the money. If the lad we signed for around £8.5m goes for anywhere near £120m then we are looking at fixing our defense and a replacement for him in midfield. Defense has been our problem for a long time, not attack, we have an ideal opportunity here to bring in the funds needed to fix that.

Not saying I want Coutinho to go but I can see positives either way, as you must when following football in the modern era, contracts do not mean loyalty and one player leaving does not mean the end of the world.


4.) 09 Aug 2017 07:42:18
Keita and VVD deals not happening are nothing to do with us not wanting to spend money. We obviously do
Southampton don't want him to go, and we tapped him up, not about money
RBL don't want to sell and don't need the money (due to ownership), we've offered well over the odds for him.


5.) 09 Aug 2017 08:24:06
I do not believe Southampton will be keeping Van Dijk now. I doubt their fans are happy with him and he will be a rotten egg if he was allowed in the dressing room.

Southampton knew he wanted to leave last season. All they are probably doing now is waiting for the bids to come in. He has set his heart on Liverpool so VVD can reject any offer that comes in from another club then they sit with a player for a season who might not even make the bench. He could also request that Soton sells him to Liverpool.

There are many twists and turns ahead before the window shuts and we most definitely have not heard the last from Liverpool re VVD.


6.) 09 Aug 2017 08:30:29
The OP is bang on the money. What he s]described is exactly what is happening to Barcelona now as BVB want 150m for Dembele cos they know that they are flush with cash from the Neymar money. We sell Cou now, any replacement we try to land (Lanzini is not good enough to carry Cou's back pack, neither is Siguurdsson, Meyer, Rakitic or whoever apart from Eriksen from Spurs) will cost the Cou fee as that club will do the same thing BVB is doing to Barcelona now. We will regret selling him cos there will be no adequate replacement for him and we will be left to either panic buy or hang on to "dead money".

Andy, you are patently wrong. The VVD and Keita deals did not go through cos we tapped both of them up and the clubs refused to sell to us at any price esp. RBL whose CEO came out to veto the deal despite Naby Keita crying that he wanted to go so stop posting falsehoods in order to slate the club's heirachy as they were ready to back Klopp on both deals. Also, stop fooling yourself with "what we can do with the money" thing as that is a false narrative. Look at Barca, they have the Neymar money and they can't use it well cos every other club like BVB for example, wants most of it for Dembele. See how that works? We will be in the same boat with Cou hence, we must keep him.


 

 

09 Jun 2017 15:53:48
Hi Eds, since we have publicly apologized and backed out of the deal to sign VVD, do you think that this will actually favour Southampton? I mean, I don't think that they will want to keep an unhappy player.

Southampton's actions might make it easier for Chelsea or City to get the player, since its no secret that he has the desire to leave. Would the whole thing backfire on Southampton and they might end up getting less than what Liverpool has offered?

Having said that, I still have a tiny hope that we can somehow land him if Liverpool can sort out the differences with Southampton.

DAPred

{Ed001's Note - no idea how you figure this out. Saints are not going to lose out, he will have to waive his cut of the transfer fee to leave.}


1.) 09 Jun 2017 16:15:52
He's not coming. We've seen to that by our own stupid actions. Forget about Salah as well. That's now at an end. We literally are the worst at going about business. If you're expecting top class players forget it. It's also rans and never have beens as that's all they're equipped to go for.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has not offered anything to Southampton.}


2.) 09 Jun 2017 16:24:45
Ed can I ask please how it works or were we are at on this, am I right in thinking the negotiations with his agent/ him now mean nothing and if we are to pick the deal up again we are starting from scratch once we have asked the Saints if we can talk to the player/ agent? Also am I right in thinking we will not contact them now unless the player hands in a transfer request? Just trying to weigh things up.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool made an illegal approach for a player - it is not allowed. Liverpool may yet be charged. They have disgraced themselves yet again and yet again shown a total disregard for others and for players. They have lied to the FA recently whilst fouling up the career of a 12 year old and have apending court case whilst currently serving a ban. Rotten to the core. The club has issued a statement that that have dropped all interest in the player - you don't seem to get any of this.}


3.) 09 Jun 2017 16:36:01
Have any talks taken place since the whole debacle earlier in the week ed002? or any provision to hold talks? Between Liverpool and S'ton I mean obvs.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - About what?}


4.) 09 Jun 2017 16:48:28
Ed002 that's what I meant by us being the worst, we haven't spoken directly to the club and through being underhand and thinking that it's being clever we've completed ballsed up any chance of a deal. I'm still livid that people employed by the club thinks that it's ok.


5.) 09 Jun 2017 16:53:21
Why would it?
We have publicly declared we are no longer interested in signing the player!


6.) 09 Jun 2017 16:58:02
Its obviously been widely reported, as you also have stated, that S'ton will be now slapping a £70m figure on VVD's head.

I guess what i'm asking is, does it look like we are going to go back with our tail between our legs and meet with them over a a potential transfer, or do you see it as totally dead in the water?

i know its an embarrassing step for the club if they were to do that, but just wondered if there is any info at this stage.

Sorry for the confusion.

{Ed002's Note - The club have made a public statement that there is no more interest.}


7.) 09 Jun 2017 17:01:25
No matter how much we may love Liverpool we must step back and objectively analyze their actions as an organization. Liverpool has been ethically and legally negligent with transfers. The sooner we as supporters realize that the better.


 

 

08 Jun 2017 06:52:14
Hi EDs, I'm truly disappointed in the way that Liverpool has handled the entire VVD situation. Clearly, we need to be more careful in our future dealings to avoid something similar from happening again.

With Liverpool officially apologizing and backing out of the deal, claiming that they have ended any interest in the player, one would assume that we'll move on to other targets now but how will this affect our relationship with Southampton? I mean, could we still go for their players in the future? I mean, if they are really pissed at us, they wouldn't want to have any dealings with us again, right?

DAPred

{Ed001's Note - we would have to make sure all our dealings with them are correct and work to rebuild the relationship as well. There are many ways we could go about doing that. For starters, if it was me, I would ask them about playing a preseason friendly so they can get the proceeds etc.}

Strurridge passing a medical would be a miracle! I mean, I would expect him to get injured during the medical and would require medical help. Just kidding. I think Sturridge will stay for another season and hopefully it'll work out well for him and us.

Eds, as of now Liv does not want to sell Coutinho. But we know in football, things can change rapidly especially when ridiculous amounts of money are involved. I'm pretty certain that Coutinho will leave Liverpool at some point, most likely next season if he was forced to stay. Would it be silly to even suggest that to make everyone happy (including Coutinho) that we work out a deal to sell to Barcelona for an amount and have them loan him back to us for the entire season. Much like what we did when we bought Origi? That would suit all parties and fans will have the whole season to accept that he's leaving, making it easier to accept and we'll also have more time to find a suitable replacement, if any.

If we don't get him after all the fuss that we've created to unsettle the player, we're going to get trolled hard by the team who will eventually sign him. We'll end up doing the dirty business for our rivals and making it easy for them. That being said, hopefully Southampton will consider doing business with us and hopefully VVD is still interested to sign for us as I feel we need him more than our rivals. Sure hope he'll make the right decision.

Thanks for the reply Ed001, so in that case we can bury all the Pulisic and Aubameyang rumours. Not like we were going to sign him anyway :)

{Ed001's Note - he wouldn't sign Aubameyang anyway, he is a problem to deal with that Klopp simply would not want. You know he missed a Champions League game this season because he was out on the lash in Milan instead don't you?}
