Ed002 I know we don’t talk money but is it’s concern that we seem to be paying so much more in agents fees than other clubs? Is there any particular underlying reason for this or is it simply that we have paid big money for players the last 12-18 months and it goes hand in hand with that.

Squizza

{Ed002's Note - There is a reason for one enormous payment to an agent last year and another this year. But yes, for some years Liverpool have been top of the agent payment league.}


1.) 05 Apr 2019 07:58:12
It's quite shocking how much more we have paid than the club that has paid the second most.

{Ed002's Note - It was expected, as it was for the season before. But I agree it should be much better controlled.}


2.) 05 Apr 2019 09:45:46
Mr Ed002, Why should an agent be able to vary their fee depending on the deal or which club their client joins? What are the factors? It makes little sense to me that a flat percentage of the initial transfer fee would not suffice.

{Ed002's Note - The agents/representatives can charge what they want and if a club declines to pay it, they can negotiate or the player will be offered elsewhere. The fact that Liverpool has been overpaying is largely a self-inflicted wound. There are regular discussions about changing the process, and you will see a return to registered agents as a first step. You will also see a ban on agents taking fees for transfers from both club and player. Other matters are up for discussion.}


3.) 05 Apr 2019 10:16:13
Ok thanks Ed. It is strange that they have so much power, and they must or the fees wouldn’t be so astronomical relative to what they actually do.

{Ed002's Note - It is what it is - some clubs do things that force the costs up. Some agents are always plotting for the move after next.}


4.) 05 Apr 2019 09:09:38
We have gone from regular finishes in 6th 7th and 8th position to challenging for the League and the Champions league titles. We have one of the best squads in the world with at least 4 players that would walk into most teams. The improvement has been so vast so quick that I'm not surprised it took a fair wedge of cash to secure our targets. Now that we are where we want to be I agree its time to start tidying up unnecessary expenditure.


5.) 05 Apr 2019 10:48:02
For the most part it's quite a young squad as well, so a couple of quality incomings to replace the likes of Sturbridge leaving and we're set for a good few yrs I think.


6.) 05 Apr 2019 11:16:15
I don't think we should worry about this. We ask the club to spend to get top quality players (we've sold top players too) this means we ended up paying lots in agent fee.

Would you rather Klopp doesn't get his preferred transfer targets cause we refuse to pay a little more in agent fee? its like the fans are never happy, they say invest and then say why pay so much.

Also we posted record profits so it seems sustainable.

All clubs are held hostage by agents and its something that needs to be looked at by the FA or other authorities. Liverpool are just playing by the rules set for everyone.

{Ed001's Note - we should worry about it, as it suggests we are allowing ourselves to waste money we could otherwise put towards better players or invest in infrastructure.}


 

 

05 Jan 2019 14:39:28
ED001 hope your well mate, read a comment of yours the other day that Keita doesn’t suit the 4-2-3-1 formation particularly, do you think he could maybe play as one of the two alongside Fab maybe against certain teams
Also what do you see as his best position or formation to get the best out of him
I expect him to start on Monday and can’t wait to see him explode and really announce himself as a Liverpool player, he has had some good moments in games but we are to see him really dominate a game.

Squizza

{Ed001's Note - he is too attack minded for the role. He is suited to being in front of the 2 but we have Firmino for that position.}


1.) 05 Jan 2019 16:47:47
I think he is just adjusting to our style and systems. Footballers are not known for their intellectual capacity, maybe he is struggling with that side of the game. He looked brilliant at times and I wondered if it is an injury that is keeping him out? Surprised we haven't seen more of him.


2.) 05 Jan 2019 17:23:49
As we’ve seen with Shaqiri, Ox, Gomez, Milner you can’t Pidgeon home a player in to one position and one way of playing. They are not on a computer game they are real people with an actual capacity to learn and adapt.
Strange I know but true.


3.) 05 Jan 2019 19:00:06
When we need a goal we all look to shaqiri to come off the bench and make something happen. We all thought it would be Keita but actually shaq and fab seem to have settled better.

Can anyone please answer, has Keita been injured? Is that the reason he is not playing atm?


4.) 05 Jan 2019 20:28:31
Robbie, Keita has had his injury issues this season but is not currently injured. I think he is still settling into the club and the system. Our system is not an easy one to play in as it is very intrinsic and can morph into multiple formations during games. But when Keita has played like vs Spurs, Palace and esp. vs WH and Burnley, we know how good he is and how much of an asset he would be. Let's give him some time to settle in and go from there. I mean, it took Ilkay Gundogan 6 months to grasp Klopp's suystem when he arrived at Dortmund and we all know the type of player he became for them and what he has now become. Patience, guys. All will be well.


5.) 05 Jan 2019 21:31:23
Cheers redwolf. I'm sure he will come good. Takes some longer to settle than others. Must be frustrating when you know you're as good as he is but are not getting the chance to show it.

I hope to see a hunger in him next time he plays. The same thing brought the best out of robbo, ox. It is working with fabhino.

We signed Sturridge 6 years ago today been watching some his goals what a player he was such a shame he had so many injuries and took away that burst of pace and trust in his own body

Wouldn’t mind seeing the Sturridge from 13/ 14 in today’s team reckon he might notch a few.

Squizza

1.) 02 Jan 2019 21:24:53
Sturridge of 13/ 14 would score a barrowload of goals in this team, but he still wouldn't bring to the team what Firmino does, Bobby just fits the front 3 perfectly. Have to agree that injuries hampered Sturridge so much, he was a talent, loved him as a player and always wished he could get back to that form. He can still do it in patches but not sure his body will handle being main man for a whole season.


2.) 02 Jan 2019 21:57:29
This is probably his best season since then. says a lot.


3.) 02 Jan 2019 21:59:11
Meant more Bobby in the no 10 role behind Sturridge with Salah right Mane on the left, loads of interchanging too.

We’ve got past the magical 40 point mark should be safe from relegation now .
seriously 42 points from 16 games is seriously impressive.

Squizza

{Ed0333's Note - damn the blue side of Manchester


1.) 08 Dec 2018 16:51:58
Squizza, the earlier you get 42 points, the better. Can we now challenge for the PL now or is it too early to call?


2.) 08 Dec 2018 17:21:05
Let’s see where we are after Xmas if we are still in it at the business end of the season you never know hey.


3.) 08 Dec 2018 18:07:41
For a second I thought this was negative red Walter just relieved that we are not getting relegated lol.


 

 

30 Nov 2018 13:19:28
Would many of you guys like to see Keita start on Sunday?
I’m hoping he can get into the team and really kick on we miss someone driving forward from the midfield.
To be honest I hadn’t seen much of him before he joined and remember there being some talk of a dubious attitude maybe a bit of arrogance, I was hoping to see a little bit of this arrogance on the pitch with him grabbing games by the scruff of the neck hopefully we can see a bit of this over the coming months.

Squizza

1.) 30 Nov 2018 15:43:39
I think everyone bigged him up expecting so much a lot of pressure.


2.) 30 Nov 2018 17:56:11
He's only been here a few months! And he's just come off an injury!

Let's give him a bit of a chance - I reckon we'll see the player we were all salivating over in the second half of the season. Fortunately we're doing OK without him playing too much at the moment.

I have faith in Klopp's master plan.


3.) 30 Nov 2018 19:37:17
No one bigged him up, IMO. We are simply excited to have such a wonderful player on our hands based on his high level of production with RBL which was all there to see. Regardless of how we feel about a player, it takes a while to get up to speed not just in the PL but in Klopp's system. Don't believe me? Well, Rapha Honigstien (Klopp's biographer) said that it took a brilliant young player named Ilkay Gundogan SIX months to get used to Klopp's system at BVB and he was not injured in his first three months of his time at BVB.

Maybe we should just be patient and support our new boys as they settle in if we really want them to do well long term except of course, some don't want them to succeed so they can say they were right in bashing them.

So 32m for an impact sub . Money well spent again. I don't doubt that in the right team and system he would be a good player I just unfortunately don't think that it is with us . Hope he proves me wrong but he takes away the best qualities of firmino coutinho etc with his lack of movement.

Put Brewster on the bench maybe chuck him on with 20 mins to go tell him to just go and enjoy it.

In some ways I do feel sorry for Sturridge he will surely look back at his career with some regret what a player he could have been especially in this team but it’s disgraceful how he bottles challenges that are even 60-40 in his favour. The Wolves game was shocking as was Klopps decision to put him on against Utd to replace Bobby where he was equally as bad, I wouldn’t start him again.

Sell Lallana for the Nivea adverts alone or if not his habit of big talk to the press followed by rubbish performance.

Newcastle will be tough next week especially after the Barcelona game hopefully we find a way to win but with all the talk of Rogers helping us to win the title the irony could be Rafa ending our hopes.

Fair play to Burnley for at least digging in and making it tough for them. Leicester do though have much for of a threat going forward here’s praying for a Vardy party 🎉.
