Hi Eds,

With the chances of Sterling leaving increasing, are we likely to revisit Konoplyanka? I presume Pedro is still not viable?

Cheers

Kiddfan

{Ed001's Note - so far we have shown no signs of resurrecting the Kono deal.}

I don't understand why not. How can he be identified as a top player one minute and then not good enough the next minute eds? As a free signing it's a no brainer even if sterling stays.

Hey Ed001

I know you have commented on Can a fair bit, but if I understood correctly his big requirement was guarantees around starting, and playing in a settled role. If that's the case, do you think the fact he is starting all games may give him the comfort so he reconsiders his position and signs new deal? Or does he think he can get a big move?

I agree with your assessment of him Ed, in that he has been immense over the last 12 months and I don't understand why we aren't giving him the warm feeling he needs. he always seems to get in well with Klopp at full time etc.

Got to be honest, I would see him signing a new deal as far better news than any signing right now. Is there any grounds for optimism or should we interpret Keita news as our resignation that Can will just run his contract down?

I don't think anyone should get guaranteed playing time. Surely that is earned on a weekly basis.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 18:02:28
I think we all also underestimate the importance of winning titles and trophies to a lot of these players. It's just an ego thing, and nothing wrong with it since it is a competitive sport after all. It's no coincidence that he's talking to Juventus, leader of the pack in Italy. I'll bet you anything that if we won the title this year, won also one of the cups and went up to the semis in the Champions League, Mr. Can's stubborn posture will appear to soften a bit.

{Ed025's Note - yeah ra, liverpool do a league and cup double, then we find out katie price is a virgin, john bishop becomes funny and adele wins slimmer of the year..

You start drinking way too early in the day, Ed025. Bad for the liver and kidneys. And makes the head see everything in shades of blue. 😝.

{Ed025's Note - some of the pages do drive me to drink ra...and i have never really thanked them mate.. :)

Not Liverpool, but.

Watching "The Debate" on Sky.

Alan Pardew is talking about Lukaku and how José spent nearly £100m on him. then goes on to say "Jose has bet his house in him. "

All I can think is how behind the times Pardew is. a few years back managers may have bet a house on strikers, but these days they are betting an exclusive housing estate . £100m . betting the house.

Blimey!

Apology/ confession

I have a 7 year old son who has had the joy of coming to4 games at Anfield with me. Only problem is . Every time he comes it is 0-0! hull, Bolton, Blackburn and now West Ham!

I know I should stop taking him but I am desperate for him to see a goal ( so is he)! With 10 mins to go against Bolton he looked at me with big eyes and said "will I never see a goal" at which point I was nearly over the hoardings to try myself!

But at least yesterday I made £100 on backing 0-0! Would be up £100k if I had backed that for each of the four games and rolled it over.

Will let you know next time he comes, firstly so you can avoid watching the game, and second so you can put your mortgage on 0-0!

But, as a dad as much as I fancy rolling the £100 over I would love for him to share the excitement of a good game and a goal!

Good stuff mate, you made me smile. And sorry for the kid, is he still an LFC supporter?


2.) 31 Jan 2016 14:14:17
I had 4 2-0 wins in a row once back in the day.
But the last 2 times have been 0-0 for me as well actually. : (
Really want a mad one like that Norwich game.

Sorry if I have missed an injury, but is there a reason why Lucas doesn't even make the bench?

A few of those who haven't made the squad today are a bit of a concern.

Kiddfan

1.) 09 Aug 2015 17:03:29
Probably the same reason he didn't beginning of last season either.

I think this sounds legit. whether we want to believe aspects of it or not.

Vvd wants to join Liverpool. I think that is public knowledge, but I also have that from another source that I trust and who has direct contacts to vvd.

Klopp wants vvd! We know this from what went on earlier in the summer, and from the fact that we didn't sign any old CB. Klopp wants vvd, and is prepared to wait for him rather than sign just anyone at CB, otherwise we would have bought someone at CB as money is not an issue right now.

So all it comes down to is politics. FSG apologised and don't want to renege on that. But once a market emerges for vvd they will go back in. Likely that will be January.

So regardless of decorators or not, I would expect us to pursue vvd in January if a market emerges. Even if it doesn't, fsg may decide that 6 months is long enough to flagilate ourselves.

Eds I know we have made serious missteps with vvd (and others from what you say) but business is business and I fully expect we will go for vvd in January (just as I expect Barcelona will. E back for Courinho. )

I think it is harsh to call Flanno a limited footballer. He was very solid defender (not something we have in abundance) and then got a nasty injury, which unfortunately appears to have put a huge dent in his development. It was hugely disappointing that he made no impact at all at Burnley.

I don't disagree with your verdict that he is unlikely to make it at the top level now, but I feel very sorry for him because I think all Liverpool fans were hugely excited when he broke through a few years back! And I don't think we should be making judgements on his ability as you have. This is a lad in his early 20's who has dreamed of nothing else but of playing for Liverpool.

Flanno - YNWA.

Are we sure his agent is authorised to be talking to us? Has he even done the Twitter accreditation?

Ed001, Good of you to give us the detail, but I don't think you have to explain things. Everyone said this was going to happen, but then it turned out we built the house on sand, so things fell apart.

You guys run a really interesting site, and try to give us interesting insights. Sometimes things will go pear shaped. doesn't change things, you are giving us your honest (sometimes very honest) view on things. If it was called Liverpool-transfer-facts. co. uk, then that would be different, but I for one enjoy the site, and appreciate you guys giving us the insights that you do (although sometimes I cringe from the tongue lashings delivered :-) ) . If you will forgive me, part of the fun of this site is just like buying the euro millions ticket. the 2 days dreaming about what it would be like if Messi signed brings a smile and some joy, even if the reality is, it is never going to happen. BTW . any chance of Messi :-)

On a different note, I find it really hard to fathom how we can get ourselves into these situations. I have nothing to do with football, but I know you need permission from the other club before you speak to the player. I know from life, that if a middle man says "trust me this is all legit", then that is when you run for the hills. SO, this is either supreme arrogance (which I would hate for my football club, but I accept it is possible), or supreme naivete. I am not sure which is worse.

Thanks for all you guys do, I am looking forward to my near hourly visits to the site during the window!

Look I hated watching that 2nd half, and I don't deny that I wanted to see a lot more fight. I would have been okay going down to 9 if we had shown some fight.

But I think we all need to settle down. Two down and down to ten the game was over. And I think the team were probably very flat after what happened. But whatever way you look at it, I kinda think that Juergen started looking at Wednesday from half time. He gave up the game as gone, probably rightly, and brought off Salah, and then Giji and Roberto probably to rest them ahead of Wednesday. As fans we probably hate it, because we want the team to fight and fight for each game, but I figure Juergen has to look st things a lot more coldly than we do, and he knew the race was run and he had to look ahead to Sevilla!

So I hated that second half, but dispassionately Juergen probably made the right call from a coldly practical viewpoint whether we as fans like it or not!

Bad day at the office, but let's take the roof of on Wednesday night!

Hi Ed001,

Realistically do you think there is a chance Can might stay, or has that ship sailed so to speak?

I will be gutted if he goes, as I think he is developing into a real quality midfielder.

Thanks for all your insights as ever!

KF.

Kiddfan

{Ed001's Note - there is always a chance but it is unlikely. He was keen to leave for Juve in the summer but we rejected their bid. I believe he has made his mind up to leave. There are still a few months left to persuade him though.}

Ed, sorry I was not suggesting that you were saying that they were no value, that was my interpretation from you saying"ignore the contract". Also my comment was not suggesting anything strange is going on here it is universal, and to me vvd is the same (and no doubt many more), so this is in no way me playing a poor old Liverpool card, I think the power balance seems a little lopsided at the moment, and players sign long and lucrative contracts and want to leave 5 minutes later.

I understand by one of your other responses that the reason that the contract has no relevance in your view, is because the owners will either sell, or they won't and therefore his contract is not relevant. That makes perfect sense from a completely objective perspective. However it appears that it is not that simple, because players these days seem to agitate for moves more, behave shall we say "interestingly" if they don't get their way. don't train properly, and even refuse to play (or even return to the country) . Worse is the suggestion (not from you) that many of them are "advised" to behave a certain way to get what they want.

Honestly not suggesting the Pipco situation is in any way abnormal, if anything it is becoming sadly too common.

In your view did players always do this, but it was less visible to fans before 24 hour multi-platform news, or is it as it seems a more recent phenomena?

{Ed002's Note - It is common for players to want to move on.}

I know I am taking my life in my hands, but. why ignore the contract?

Are we really saying that they are barely worth the paper they are written on and are purely mechanism for pay rises in return for a sham of commitment, which lasts only until a prettier girl comes along? You can see why fans would struggle with that, and I can imagine there will come a time when clubs won't.

Ed, I firmly believe there are always three sides to every story, and this is not my industry so there will be large amounts that I am oblivious too, but are you really saying that contracts are of next to no relevance now in football (which has probably been the reality for a while now)? If so, I would be interested if you have thoughts on how ownership of players, contracts, etc may evolve in the future, as clubs and players seem to have rapidly diverging interests.

Kiddfan

{Ed002's Note - I did not say that contracts have next to no relevance. I have no idea why you are unable to grasp the simple situation that we have here. It is a player who wants to leave, a club that wants to buy and a club that doesn't want to sell. It is business as usual and there is nothing in any way special about Countinho or this potential transfer at all. You seem to think there is something strange going on. There isn't.}

I share your challenge Ed002. I mean, what is a marque?

Now, if the question related to a marquee, then that would of course be more straightforward, as everyone knows they are measured in sq feet and have to be over 500 sq foot to count as a marquee and not just be a big tent.

Of course at some point a marquee gets so big it is classed as a big top, but I don't think we want to get into that given how the window has gone so far. 😀.
