Hi Ed002, if the season is "expunged" as may be the case (regardless of the hope to finish) what will happen with player contracts? It's one thing to extend a season but quite another to wipe it from records. In addition, will players be liable to pay back performance related bonuses? Thirdly, will clubs have to issue season tickets to the same fans at no cost given the fan paid for a season they effectively would not have seen yet? Thanks for any comments in advance mate.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - (1) If the season is subject to being made null and void, or a line drawn across, there is no impact on the contracts. If the season is played out the rules need to be changed to allow month on month or game on game extensions (already agreed). (2) No, that would not happen as the clubs still received income from those games. (3) No, they would need to adjust season ticket prices for next season if they want to - else some clubs will look to the fans not looking for a reduction and to suck up a circa £200-£300 loss. good questions.}

Thanks for the answers. I'm having a difficult time just getting my head around all the variables and I'm sure the site will be alive with madness when the full picture of what'll happen emerges. I know some people are not going to be happy but quite honestly I've only been thinking about these things as momentary escapes from the dreadful reality we're all in. Stay safe mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is potentially an unjust deal for Liverpool under several of the options - the null and void being the worst of course. On the table remains the line across option that is better but puts Liverpool in the position of asking. And that still looks a tough call for me.}


2.) 27 Mar 2020 10:26:24
ed with fifa looking at stop movement of players after june 30th between clubs to try to finish the season what would be best all round. But as the days go on god knows what is going to happen what do you think would happen if this stayed around till Christmas time because everyday it seems worse. Only can hope that this slows down soon to cut this death toll from going through the roof.

{Ed002's Note - The answer is the same as I have repeatedly explained, everybody wants to play the seasons out and the rules would need to be changed to allow contracts to be extended on a month-by-month basis or game-by-game basis. However, if this cannot be done, eventually a decision will be made to draw a line across. That decision will certainly not be as late as Christmas.}


3.) 27 Mar 2020 11:56:14
Whatever happens Ed002 mate, someone is going to be disappointed. and I know many will not agree with me but I'd rather the season was expunged than any more deaths from this horrendous plague of a virus. My wife works at one of the very places modeling the infection patterns of sars cov 2 (they advise PHE and WHO) and this is just the first wave. a second wave is fully expected in October. and since they've been having meetings on zoom I've overheard ridiculous numbers talked about as casualties. As I said to all of you out there. STAY SAFE!

{Ed002's Note - You are right, some clubs and fans are certainly going to be disappointed. I am not aware of a suggestion of a second wave in October but assume there will be indicators in advance of it. I mentioned in response to another question that the 21 "elite" European sides are to have a WebEx on Monday to discuss the whole issue, and all have been asked to digest the Imperial College report that suggests "social distancing" (or even Wuhan style complete suppression) would be required for about 18 months until a vaccine or vaccines are widely available. I hope you, your wife and everybody else stay safe.}


4.) 27 Mar 2020 15:13:45
Sorry to leave and not reply. Sadly one of my wife's colleagues had dreadful news to pass on. Her Father and Uncle had passed away from covid-19 and her mother was critical in hospital. she's losing most of her family. They just had an informal panel and she let people know. after which they gave confirmation that a second wave is expected between September and October. By the way, there is a trial here in the UK (apparently) that is having success at this moment but they haven't even moved to human trials. things might get rushed but it still looks more than 8-12 months away. I'm just passing on tidbits without divulging anything that was private. Please ALL be kind to one another and follow social distancing and hygiene protocols. and don't forget to disinfect your keyboards every day!

Hi Ed002, what chance Talles Magno will be signed by us given that we'd still have enough time for him to eventually be considered a homegrown player?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Talles Magno (S/W) Vasco de Gama kiddie who has been subject to discussions with Lyon's Sporting Director Juninho and Real Madrid who want him to join and pair up with Reinier Jesus and Rodrygo to ease the transition. Lazio and Roma enquired after a price and were quoted €65M but it went no further than that. Benfica, Manchester City, Braga, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Bayern Munich were impressed with him enough at the U17 World Cup to continue to watch him at club level. I would suggest the chances of him moving to Europe would be influenced by compatriots at Real Madrid or the lure of Juninho at OL. I cannot assess the chances of a move to any of the other sides.


1.) 21 Feb 2020 12:07:25
Thanks for the reply, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 22 Feb 2020 10:26:21
Or the lure of learning from some of the best senior Brazilians in football right now, in Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson.


3.) 22 Feb 2020 21:30:32
i think the biggest issue if getting work permits for them, i can't imagine it would be the easiest for young Brazilians.

Hi Ed001 and Ed002,

Firstly, Merry Christmas to you and all the Eds that give their time to running the site. A site that has been the difference between madness and sanity for many of us, lol. I (and I'm sure everyone else) hope you have a fantastic Holiday Season.

Now, onto my question. Are we looking at Dejan Kulusevski?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Dejan Kulusevski (AM) has been watched by a number of sides including Inter (who have already approached Atalanta but don't want the player for 18 months) Arsenal, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester United and Firentina and no doubt others.}

Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina for £2m plus sell-on clause, apparently.

Reynard

1.) 02 Sep 2019 10:45:22
Good riddance. Enjoy your time in Italy 👉🏻🚪.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 11:09:34
Bye 👋🏼
The lad seemed to either believe his own hype or was using the name of Gerrard to try and get himself ahead of others.
Good luck to him, he needs to grow up, learn to be a professional, learn that being related to someone is no substitute to hard work, dedication and talent and get himself a better agent.
Hopefully he forges a successful career for himself based on merit.


3.) 02 Sep 2019 13:56:09
Until next summer when he decides he is to good of a player to be there and forces a move, I'm surprised they want such a nuisance.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 14:42:19
Give the kid a break, I wish him well. Still hope he sacks the agent though.


5.) 02 Sep 2019 14:13:13
Does his cousin not want to sign him either then? Rangers could surely pay 2m? Or are they still pleading poverty?


6.) 02 Sep 2019 14:42:09
I look at how the red devils have thrown Rashford in at a young age and now Mason Greenwood and let's see how those 2 turn out, Rashford is hardly living up to his potential and whilst Greenwood is highly regarded, they could end up destroying him. How can an 18 year old Duncan seriously expect to get ahead of Mane, Firmino, Salah, Origi, Shaqiri and Brewster well he could potentially give Brewster a run for his money as he has yet to get an opportunity.

The best he could hope for is a place on the bench for the Carabao Cup / FA Cup and maybe a bench appearance during the very busy months of December and January. If its true that Duncan is being an arse I hope he regrets what could have been (plenty of medals in this team), this young generation of players at the club could be the next big thing in 4 years time, I am looking at VD Berg, Hoever, Elliot, Jones, Woodburn, Arroyo, Glatzel, Larouci, and Brewster and you can add in Gomez and TAA as they will be in their prime.

I hope Stevie G has a word in his ear, a loan to Scottish football would set him straight . I would not want to be playing in Aberdeen on a mid week night in January!


7.) 02 Sep 2019 15:58:03
What's wrong with Aberdeen?


8.) 02 Sep 2019 17:33:53
Honestly just on the Rashford comment thing, I think united have made their own problems. I think LVG actually had just gotten united to a point they might make progress, it took a long time but United won the FA cup and rashford came in and was playing really well. They looked like they finally were able to put in some good performances, then they got rid of him and got jose and went downhill again.

Rashford in turn seemed to just not progress that much and now the end of last season and the first few games of this season hasn't done much.

reckon they should have just carried on another season with LVG see if he could build on the FA cup. But they wanted Jose and here we are, reckon this season will be a bigger 2 horse race than last season. Though would be nice is Leicester grabbed a top 4 place ;)


9.) 03 Sep 2019 15:09:31
I remember Martial looked a spectacular prospect when he came under LVG.


10.) 04 Sep 2019 22:41:50
The fact that salah bobby mane etc are ahead of him is kind of the reason he probably wanted out, he wasn't saying he deserved his place in front of them but he still wants to play first team so fair enough that he wanted out.
Just a shame that he didn't act great with the public drama that forced the move. But we move on, no big loss and the player moves on with a big challenge for him to prove he's worth his words.

Quite surprised by Neil Critchley's departure but I suppose an actual managerial position was going to beckon at some point. Good luck to him at Blackpool.

Reynard

1.) 02 Mar 2020 11:12:35
Be interesting to see how many youngsters may get a loan there in the summer. But best of luck to Crtichley.


2.) 02 Mar 2020 12:00:48
Thanks and good luck to him.

Today I'm sure many of us (old enough) are remembering the huge loss that Manchester United went through. We were one of the teams that offered Man Utd players after the horrendous Munich Air Disaster. may they Rest In Peace #FlowersOfManchester #YNWA.

Reynard

{Ed047's Note - just heard the moving tribute from the various players and managers. I second your thoughts fella.


1.) 06 Feb 2020 09:31:19
Well said mate.

Ed002 - if you're about and willing (and permit this to be asked here) can I ask your views on Red Bull and the ownership of multiple clubs that effectively could compete against one another.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - As far as I know they only own four clubs: RBL, Red Bull Salzburg, Red Bull Brasil, and New York Red Bulls - so only RBL and salzburg could potentially meet in competition. A couple of years ago they were both entered in to the same European competition but Red Bull changed the corporate structure rather than put UEFA on the spot and come up with a ruling. That meant that the clubs are shown to be sufficiently separate entities for it not to be an issue. As for the orgainsation, what they did with RBL was pretty amazing, and they have put in place a higher level structure to assist all of the sides which differs from other multi-club owning businesses - most notably The City Football Group who own or part own Manchester City, New York City Yokohama Marinos, Girona, Sichuan Jiuniu, Atletico Torque, Mebourne City and are working on a couple of other. Eventually you will see Europe give way completely to a structure that could see more multiple-club ownership, training clubs from lower leagues and potentially franchises.}


1.) 01 Oct 2019 11:39:53
Thank you Ed002 mate, as enlightening as ever. I was actually wondering why more club ownerships and big brands hadn't followed suit, it seems to be a far more sensible route to develop players and achieve advertising.

By the way, they own the second division Austrian team FC Liefering in addition to those you named and are allegedly looking at another European club.

Thanks again.

Thank you to the Everton fans who rather wonderfully displayed the 'Two Clubs One City' banner at Hillsborough last night. Very classy move!

Hadn’t seen that, absolutely outstanding. Nice one blue boys.


 

 

18 Sep 2019 15:53:25
I'm absolutely sickened that the abuse Andy Robertson received from some (so-called) LFC fans has led him to delete his Twitter account. What a bunch of bottom-feeders to bring a player to this when he has given so much to our club. What is wrong with these so-called fans?!

Reynard

1.) 18 Sep 2019 16:19:57
Every club has their morons and unfortunately we are no exception. The fact they could target a player like Robertson after one game just highlights that they have no bounds. Bunch of plebs.


2.) 18 Sep 2019 16:51:22
I am not disagreeing with you but how do you know it is Liverpool fans? If it is they have no business says they support LFC.


3.) 18 Sep 2019 17:08:55
just have a look down the page Mark and you would know its Liverpool fans . let me quote you

"I agree regarding Robbo he looked tired and he can't play all the games"

Thats criticism, a very sensible and articulate one but unfortunately many of our own a bit more obtrusive in their criticism, within the same thread you see "Bobby Mane and Mo we're utter rubbish"


4.) 18 Sep 2019 18:11:14
Are real LFC fans? or they are from other football club pretending they are LFC fan to attack Robertson.
In fact I don't believe it was a penalty.


5.) 18 Sep 2019 18:43:16
We won 16 games in a row, can't see the need for any ott criticism. I think though Klopp and probably the front 3 themselves think they all had pretty rubbish games.


6.) 18 Sep 2019 19:43:09
Fans of every club have kneejerkers and aholes in their number. I've been the latter more than once, (albeit not to the players) so let's not try and say it was other fans posing as LFC fans.


7.) 18 Sep 2019 23:07:59
Theres a big difference between criticising a player and criticising their performance. Our front three were pretty rubbish against Napoli. They made poor some poor decisions in the final third.


8.) 19 Sep 2019 06:34:41
Got to be honest, can't think why anyone in the public eye would be on Twitter, having a profile on there is like a 'come and get me' invitation to every Richard Cranium in the world to give you abuse, and lots of it from fake profiles and bots.

{Ed025's Note - i agree johnny..


9.) 19 Sep 2019 13:21:43
Roy are you trying to say I abused Andy Robertson and Made him delete twitter? Haha come on love, I'm pretty sure me writing my opinion that Mane Salah and Bobby were rubbish, which they were, wouldn't really bother a multi million pound champions league winning footballer in the slightest 😂.


10.) 19 Sep 2019 17:15:26
Cannot believe, repeat, i cannot believe, Andy Robertson is the target of abuse from fans. Best lb we have had in a long, long, long time. In fact, i can't remember a better lb for us in the last 20 years, maybe 30. When you see a player put in the effort that robbo, bobby, hendo and gini put in, how can you criticise?

There is no shame in losing at napoli. Infact, didn't we lose to napoli last year and go on to win the champions league?

I don't see us winning the ucl again this time. Not because we aren't good enough. Of course we are. But 3 finals in a row! I just don't see it. Also i reckon the prem is the priority. And i think we will win it

Im also offering 16/ 1 that pep's head is going to literally explode this season.


11.) 19 Sep 2019 18:22:05
Roy are you trying to say I abused Andy Robertson
================
No I did n't say anything like that . I would n't dare love /
No seriously the point I was trying to make is different fans have different level of criticising the players . For example Mark (I think) said "Robbo he looked tired and he can't play all the games" which is fair and not abusive, your criticism though not soul destroying it was mildly offensive (there is nothing wrong . we all do it ) . but then you get stuff like "Robbo is lazy and utter rubbish" ignoring all the good performances he had for us . Then you get the real bad stuff like "This fn Robbo is ****, he cost us the game and cost me my beer money ; I am going to tweet him and tell him exactly what I think" etc if you get my point . Regarding the front 3 . I appreciate your opinion but I don't agree there were utter rubbish . If you can watch the game again and see the amount of runs Salah and Mane made, the effort was there but in the end of the day they could n't get a shot on but its not because they did n't try, its because the Napoli defence made it difficult for them.

Thanks, Ed002.you've already answered the next question I had about contracts. With the infection pattern across Europe, I'd be surprised if they manage to finish domestic leagues without serious compromises by all national leagues.

Hi Ed002, with everything being so up-in-the-air at the moment due to the SARS CoV 2 virus, do you think there will be a knock on effect to the summer transfer window?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - It is a good question and depends on when the decision comes to draw the line across or when the games are played. The issue of contracts running out June 30 will likely see UEFA agree to month on month extensions or even game by game. If it could be completed by say August 30 then you could see the window reduced to one month potentially.}

You can expect all levels of public gatherings to be banned for up to 18 months. Football (worldwide) will have to consider new methods of monetization. It might continue but it'll be very VERY different. Just my opinion but I think streaming matches and a change in broadcast matches will have to be on the table for the near future.

In the EPL:
Milner - 0669 minutes - 3 yellow cards
Fabinho - 1354 minutes - 5 yellow cards

On that basis, you're right because he's statistically ahead of Fabinho - he's also provided 2 assists, 2 goals AND only committed 6 fouls (compared to Sadio's 34), made 10 clearances and been dispossessed 3 times.
