Do we know if there is anything happening with chirivella this window?

The Southern Red

1.) 14 Jan 2019 18:11:02
Is he still with us? Wasn't he loaned to romania or something?


2.) 14 Jan 2019 19:06:04
He's been playing most of the under 23 matches.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 19:21:57
He is too good for the u23 - great passer, good game management. He looks frustrated but Im not convinced he has a future with us. Ed001 might know better.

{Ed001's Note - he did look like he might have a chance but Fabinho has taken his place I think.}


4.) 14 Jan 2019 21:49:05
a shame i did genuinely think he had a good chance with us to atleast push for a squad player.


5.) 15 Jan 2019 02:38:11
Ed01, that must be the ever-question for academy vs buying aye? I feel as tho a youth has to be over the top good, or at least assessed that way, in order to get a shot.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate and this is why I would like to see something done to force teams to look to their academies.}


 

 

09 Jan 2019 17:53:57
So with all these questions being banded around regarding transfers thought i'd try and put together the VERY small summary of what is probably going to happen in Jan.

Please add any input if you want.

Ins: Non (unless we see a major injury to someone important or see more outs than i believe) .
Recalled loans: Awoniyi, Woodburn.

Outs: Non possible loans of youth.

Camacho - Sporting Lisbon (be suprised if he goes without signing a new deal) .
Awoniyi - another loan out as he doesn't have a permit to play for liverpool.
Wooburn - maybe he will stay as part of the squad. Lots of interest from the Championship.

We won't see Lallana or Origi leave this month as it leaves us light up top.

The Southern Red

From BBC App

Liverpool are set to end Wales winger Ben Woodburn's loan spell at Sheffield United and will consider enquiries from Blackburn Rovers, Brentford and Hull City for the 19-year-old.


2.) 10 Jan 2019 10:14:15
Muscron GM looking to resign Awoniyi after his loan spell has been cut short.

Kamil Grabara is off on loan to Aarhus GF apparently.

The Southern Red

1.) 06 Jan 2019 14:38:34
Never heard the team. let's hope he will do well, as if I remember correctly he was touted to be one of the good goalkeepers in the future.


2.) 06 Jan 2019 16:18:30
My Aarhus!


3.) 06 Jan 2019 17:07:26
He’s been overtaken by the Irish lad recently!

Which shows the strength of our goalies.


4.) 06 Jan 2019 18:12:37
Aarhus, in the middle of our street?


5.) 06 Jan 2019 19:38:13
Well played, The Southern Red! 👏🏻.


6.) 06 Jan 2019 23:54:32
Grabara would still be ahead of Kelleher in the pecking order, both good goalies though.


7.) 07 Jan 2019 23:00:48
Good thing is I'm certain he'll be their no 1 and get plenty of game time.

Bad thing is it's going to be in a very average league. Danish football isn't good at the moment. Apart from Copenhagen and to some extent Midtjylland and Brøndby, the quality of football and players has been going exponentially downhill for the last 7-8 years or so (apart from Copenhagen performing pretty steadily in Europe) . Not sure how much he'll be tested in quality, albeit Aarhus isn't doing that well, so he might get his chances to be the hero, or at least be a game changer. Time will tell

Good luck to the lad anyways! I'll definitely be watching him.


 

 

27 Aug 2018 21:06:47
any updates on ojo?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - He has no future at Liverpool and there is interest from Middlesbrough - expect him to leave this week.}


1.) 27 Aug 2018 23:21:59
Shame that, thought he was going to be a good player for us. Good luck to the lad.
Wasn’t he thought of as one of the best young prospects in the world at one time? Sure Ed002 once said something along those lines? I could be mistaken.

{Ed002's Note - In 2013 he was pointed out as one of a handful of players who would do well when they grew up.}


2.) 27 Aug 2018 23:54:10
I thought he looked really good when he played a bunch of league games during our Europa League run a couple of seasons ago but he doesn’t seem to have kicked on since then.


3.) 28 Aug 2018 00:53:22
Shame, you always hope academy products will succeed. He's been unlucky with injuries and at times it felt like the club not having concrete plan for him may have hindered his development. That said, he isn't where he needs to be to mount a challenge for first team football. Physically he's definitely there, but he has been from a young age. Mentally he doesn't seem sharp enough and he;s always lacked consistency when on loan (even when given regular game time), especially with regards to his end product.

Best of luck to the lad though, hope he gets a move and regular football. Who knows, might just be a late bloomer that turns into a world beater.


4.) 28 Aug 2018 08:08:33
It's a real shame, I really thought he was going to be the next big thing for us a few years ago, unfortunately it didn't work out for him. Good luck to the lad, fingers crossed he has a great career elsewhere.


5.) 27 Aug 2018 23:45:31
Wow, was it that long ago. What happened to him Eds? Don’t remember seeing any bad press about him, did he just not progress as well as expected or did the club not make the best decisions regarding his development?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any bad press for him - but Liverpool's focus is very much on bringing players in from outside so he won't get the chances he perhaps thinks he deserves.}


6.) 28 Aug 2018 10:43:59
He's suffered quite a few injuries in the last two years. He broke a bone in his neck two seasons ago and then he dislocated his shoulder last season.
Unfortunately these seem to have stunted his progress.
It's a shame as Robertson, TAA and Gomez have shown that Klopp has trust in youth and with TAA and Gomez will promote from within if he thinks they're good enough.

{Ed002's Note - TAA yes, Roberton was not first choice for the club and Gomez is only playing as cover. The clubs plan right nopw is to buy the Premier League at all cost - and the debt has been increasing again at an alarming rate in order for them to do that.}


7.) 28 Aug 2018 11:14:00
Apparently stad reim are a possible destination on loan.

{Ed002's Note - Stade de Reims would be a very poor choice (although they are still looking for a couple of loans) due to language issues if nothing else. Whilst many of the players will speak English the club is full of African players from French speaking nations and an Argentine player who speaks fluent French. If a deal can be struck with Middlesbrough it should provide a good opportunity for him.}


8.) 28 Aug 2018 16:24:46
To be fair Nathan AKe was on that list as well. Things don't always work out.

{Ed002's Note - The list was written when the players were young and unknown. Ake is a full Dutch International and a starter in the Premier League, he has a Europa League winners medal etc.. This type of post is a demonstration of why it is pointles sharing anything interesting with the Liverpool supporters to be honest. I'll avoid it in the future.}


9.) 28 Aug 2018 19:09:40
redphil, Ake has achieved a significant amount compared to Ojo who is still waiting to have a full season at any clhb.

Whilst they were both very highly rated at a young age, clearly Ake has shown that he can perform at a high level. Compared to Ojo who hasn’t other then sporadic games in the championship.

I apologise Ed I enjoy the valued knowledge that you have imparted on us and find it very interesting and I agree with what you have said with regards to Ojo.


10.) 28 Aug 2018 19:54:59
Ed002 - I' now highly confident that you don't know your eggs when it comes to Liverpool's finances. The intention isn't to buy the league - just to compete given better commercial performance, and consecutive champions league qualifications. Last year's figures, when released later this year show a large profit, in part due to the Coutinho sale, but also, a sizeable sale of players, bookable in that financial period.

The investment for this season is higher, but it's nowhere near the heights of City and Chelsea way back when. When accounting for inflation, Liverpool are nowhere near those two clubs in terms of outlay - and the debt is manageable, and not much higher than last seasons finances.

I seem to remember Chelsea buying the league a few years back, and since they stopped spending, they haven't amounted to much. Funny that.

{Ed002's Note - You moronic posts about finances are embarrassing. Please tell me how much money will be shown in last years figures for the sale of Coutinho? Why do you keep mentioning other clubs who don't even appear in the list of the most debt ridden clubs - it is embarrassing. It think you will find Chelsea might have done OK in recent years - this sort of trash makes you look particularly stupid. Liverpool are the fifth most debt rifden club in World football from the latest figures submitted, and the growth rate is the second highest year on year.}


11.) 28 Aug 2018 20:06:17
ED02 I always enjoy your input and look through the posts for nuggets like these.

If you do not engage the LFC supporters then their only form of education is the usual media and socual media.
I think a lot of visters/ posters to this site are still in transition and crossing over from the junk in mainstream media, hence their lack of knowledge and their narrow viewpoints.

Remember that there are many of us who value your work, along with the other ED's too.
It is just abt a little perseverance with us at times!

I have not bothered to read any sports back pages since discovering this site, which is a testomant to you and all the EDs

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You are very sweet.}


12.) 28 Aug 2018 20:48:20
....

{Ed002's Note - We are not going to post your rubbish - you don’t seem keen on what Liverpool will be declaring in the accounts for Coutinho - and seemingly have zero grasp of the situation at the club at all.}


13.) 28 Aug 2018 23:07:34
I agree with RedKurd, Ed02's insights are always helpful and illuminating. His comments about Liverpool's debt prompted me to do some research and I found those figures in UEFA's Club Licensing Benchmark Report 2016 (latest) . Slide 122!
The debt figures are concerning (although multiple of revenue isn't too bad) and I would agree that Liverpool are spending big to win silverware. not the first club to have tried this. Satisfying to see Utd still on top!
Ed02, I wonder whether Liverpool's growth rate that year was particularly high due to the Main Stand/ shop development and the low-interest loan from FSG (1.24% according to the Telegraph)? I'm not sure if it was that financial year?
With increased matchday revenues from the redevelopment, recent new sponsorship deals and the revenue boost from reaching the Champions League final (hopefully not a one-off), do you think the debt position will improve or is this an ongoing high-leverage strategy? Within FFP rules, of course.

{Ed002's Note - The increased match day income is minimal. The increased PL money is not. The money spent in cash this year and in 2017 is very significant (including £79M in payments for players purchased but not paid for in previous years. All but £5M of the money spent on VVD and the agent fees was in cash. We are going to give up again on the money as it is clear people simply don’t get it.}


14.) 28 Aug 2018 23:17:25
@Vagus : “Ed002 - I' now highly confident that you don't know your eggs when it comes to Liverpool's finances. ”


Hmmm, you may want to have a rethink on that.

I’m pretty certain ed002 knows more than you do about our finances. 👍.


15.) 29 Aug 2018 00:32:34
Ed02, please don’t let the stupid internet trolls ruin things for everyone. It is clear that some of the people who visit this site only do so to get a rise out of fans and make everyone look bad. I think I speak for most here when I say that your posts provide excellent insight into the club. Thanks for all you do.

{Ed002's Note - It means that we have to be careful what is shared and which questions are answered.}


16.) 29 Aug 2018 05:30:57
It's ok for the club to carry some debt so long as yearly revenue exceeds debt service and expenditures by a considerable margin. The club's name still has value and the owners can sell it with the attached debt if they so choose. What's more troubling is that the club seems to be had in the market again and again. Why are we paying the majority of transfer fees in single installments upfront and selling players for fees paid in installments?

{Ed001's Note - not sure how that is being had? It means there is regular income from the instalments, while the outgoings are pretty much accounted for immediately. Payment terms make little real difference in that respect, there are pros and cons to either way of doing it.}


17.) 29 Aug 2018 07:03:14
Ojo isn’t good enough. I have said that on here time and time again, I have never seen the hype with him. Hopefully for his sake he can move on to a level more suited to his game currently and build himself up and prove me wrong but for me we are 100% correct in getting rid.


18.) 29 Aug 2018 09:18:49
Ahhh it's that time of year again when a new poster of limited experience tries to 'teach' ED002 about finances. I always enjoy the Ed's responses to these - thanks for the info Ed;s, as always it is appreciated.


19.) 29 Aug 2018 10:09:26
I don’t think Ojo was given enough first team opportunities.

The few chances he got he didn’t look out of place IMO.


20.) 29 Aug 2018 12:19:11
Ojo was injured several times both with us and on loan and by the time he came back, he'd just been firmly overtaken by others so that even if Klopp at some point decides to give our youth products some chances, it won't be him (particularly Wilson and Woodburn) . It's sad but it's life and he's making the right decision at 21, where he needs to be starting to get regular full games to progress. Hopefully he stays injury free and salvages a bright and positive career.


21.) 29 Aug 2018 19:12:32
Re% the debt, its it look y to be something that is sustainable with current TV revenues or will it likely end up outstripping even that?

{Ed002's Note - It needs to be dealt with.}


 

 

19 Aug 2018 11:58:41
Any update on what's going to happen with Origi?

The Southern Red

1.) 19 Aug 2018 13:40:57
With Ings gone, with rumours of Solanke being looked at for a loan up North, and with Sturridge's uncertain fitness/ injuries long term outlook, it seems to me that Origi will be kept for the season. Or maybe he'll go out on loan and Solanke will be kept. I will add that I feel a loan would do Solanke more good than it would do Origi. He's had a few and not really gotten anywhere.


2.) 19 Aug 2018 15:56:42
Dortmund apparently interested.

With the markovic situation if no one is interested in buying him surely we should be just making an agreement for him to leave early?

The Southern Red

1.) 17 Jan 2019 11:25:44
I think no one is interested in buying him 'at the price we've set'. It is for the good of both the club and the player that we let him leave (maybe for a fee, but a reasonable one) but it's not exactly our MO to actually do the right thing most of the time.


2.) 17 Jan 2019 13:34:47
Why put an asking price on him? Just let the poor bugger go, let's be honest, we've wasted too much of his career as it is. He deserves to move on ASAP. How can/ will anybody pay good money for him when he's done literally bugger all!


3.) 17 Jan 2019 14:07:39
Salah- We may have been the major contributor to his career going stale but didn’t he refuse moves out the club so he could keep cashing in his inflated wages here?


4.) 17 Jan 2019 14:24:39
Cobra, it's believed it was the other way around. Liverpool set the asking price too high and priced the interested clubs out of a move for him.


5.) 17 Jan 2019 14:32:04
yeah don't get how the club has wasted too much of his career. He has had 4 loans and done nothing at any of them but carried on getting about £50k a week my be he has wasted the 5 years at the club but my be he is just happy to get the money. He is a grown man and if he wants to improve it is down to him to put the work in. It is not all ways down to the clubs these players get to much money to fast.

{Ed002's Note - It is a lot more than that.}


6.) 17 Jan 2019 14:40:01
How have we wasted his career? He had the chance to move on in the summer and refused.


7.) 17 Jan 2019 15:27:13
You all have to realize how poorly we've managed him down the years.

One thing is that the lad moved way too early, but I guess that's a seemingly common thing in football nowadays. Either way, we bought him without having any plan at all for him - pretty sure we even played him as a wing back (out of position) a lot, but I may be wrong on that one. He was never given a proper chance to really do anything at Liverpool.

After that follows all his loan spells, and while he hasn't shown a lot, we have to understand that he's still a young lad and that he's basically been thrown around from club to club (FOUR different ones in FOUR years), been "mistreated" at our own club and just basically hasn't gotten any chance to really improve or do anything for himself over the years. There's never been a plan with the loan spells, maybe besides getting his price to rise a bit. Nothing about all this really screams morale or confidence boost.

Besides he's pretty much been forced out of a move on several occasions, as the club has set the asking price way too high each and every time. At least that's how I've come to understand it.

In conclusion we've done absolutely nothing to help him with his career, and given all the circumstances I can fully understand why his development has stalled as it has. We need to let him go and let him rebuild his career elsewhere - something that is long overdue.


8.) 17 Jan 2019 17:55:42
My heart bleeds Chimi. grown men have to help themselves. He's had enough chances at different clubs by now, or have they all wasted his career as well?


9.) 17 Jan 2019 19:35:59
I really don't buy in to the he moved to early stuff to be honest.
I won't say that liverpool have been faultless in the handling of the lad, however when he was purchased if the lad wasn't ready to play, which he wasn't, and didn't really then how on earth would training with better players in a top premier league hinder his progress.
He has had loan moves, players have loans all the time, millions. some work some don't. if Marko was all that good and had the head to push on and realise his ability, in my opinion he would have made it at liverpool.
Absolutely no bad feeling towards the player in any way I hope he has a fantastic career.
Blaming liverpool for ruining this players career Is garbage in my opinion.


10.) 17 Jan 2019 19:55:56
Bang on Naby. He was given a chance that any of us would die for and he’s done absolutely nothing with it. Surely he has to take responsibility for coming to Liverpool and not working hard enough to be in 2 different managers plans?
We owe him nothing he’s taken a hefty wage from us for 5 years and given us nothing in return.


11.) 17 Jan 2019 20:00:29
Naby, there's way more to it than him just sticking up for himself and BEING A PROPER MAN, but you don't seem to grasp that.

Lazar was what, 19? when he joined us. Even if that "qualifies" as being grown up, I would say that Liverpool as a club is held responsible for way more than he himself is at such an age. We bought him with no plans whatsoever for him. From 2014 till now, our club has mistreated him in lots of ways - that's A LOT of uncertainty from a young guys' point of view.

Should he have been able to do more on his loan spells with the ability he has? Perhaps. But with the way Liverpool have handled this, I'm in no way surprised that his development has stalled and that he might have lost interest in the game, might have lost huge amounts of confidence, might have not fitted the different clubs his been at or whatever might have happened. There could be a lot of things to it. Moving to a new country/ club four times (five if we count Liverpool as well) in 3-4 years can't be easy for a young guy. Not everyone has the mentality to being moved around like that. To this date the clubs holds way more responsibility than Lazar himself does, close to most of it. Instead of permanently letting him go to another club, we've held him back with loan spells that clearly haven't worked out.

Besides all of this shouldn't really be a surprise, as we've done it with a lot of players. It's not a new thing that we're screwing a lot of players' careers up.

I'm also surprised at how few people take all these details into consideration before making stupid and illogical comments like that of yours Naby.


12.) 17 Jan 2019 22:11:00
It seems pretty clear a few of you have simply no idea what you're talking about in regards to Markovic. Spot on Chimi.


13.) 17 Jan 2019 22:52:15
At some point the player has to take responsibility for his own career, Markovic has never looked good enough for Liverpool or suited for the premier league. He has had loans away from the club and has rarely impressed. Liverpool may have made some mistakes early with him but the rest is down to Markovic.

{Ed002's Note - Someone else’s fault - should have realised.}


14.) 17 Jan 2019 23:24:54
Correct, Markovic is responsible for Markovic’s career!

{Ed002's Note - Really, the club have priced him out of moves and pretty much wrecked his career. If they can screw with players they do - Jay Spearing is another. A player that the club took action to stop him playing for Bolton - no doubt Spearing’s fault.}


15.) 18 Jan 2019 11:26:23
Spearing went on loan to Bolton and he impressed them enough that they bought him. He was given an opportunity and he took it.
Markovic has had multiple loans and none of those clubs were sufficiently impressed to buy him. He had opportunities and hasn’t taken them.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 13:49:12
Hi all I know finances isn’t always a difficult subject as a lot of us, myself included, have played football manager and fifa and don’t know the true financial implications of how much a transfer costs and how much a club actually receives for a player.

A rounded number released by the media doesn’t tell the full story.

I know we usually laugh off twitter but the below link is a breakdown of Liverpool’s financial results 2016/ 17.

Main things to point out debt is going up and so is revenue but this doesn’t include the large outgoings for last window.

I think what Ed has been trying to explain is that we can’t just go out and buy a £50m player because we want him, we have to manage the spend as we are trying to live within our financial means.

Our wage bill is high! We have managed to move on some of our squad players who weren’t in the long term picture but still new contracts to the front 3 will cost money.

Ultimately do I really want us to buy a massive signing, of course I do! But do I think it’s sensible to? Probably not as the Ed’s repeatedly say the owners have pumped money into the club recently to push to win the league, it is not going to happen regularly!

Anyways everyone we are top of the league so stop being rude and insulting to the Ed’s or other people, we are Liverpool and we are one! Macca i know you mean no harm but you have a cult following on here so anything you say will be taken as gospel!

Vive la Liverpool!

The Southern Red

1.) 13 Jan 2019 17:39:30
I asked a question about our finances, didn't mention any signings.

Cheers

Macca.

{Ed002's Note - Not how it was interpreted by others I am afraid.}


2.) 13 Jan 2019 22:36:54
I wasn’t trying to focus on signing. I appreciate discussing finance is difficult as you have to have a certain understanding of numbers and account for costs that aren’t basic knowledge e. g how much a player cost.

Everyone needs to realise we have increasing debt levels and higher wage bills, as Ed has said we have overpaid for a number of signings due Klopp being A grade a ****.

I find it fascinating not just Liverpool but how companies are run, it’s very easy to get lost in the moment of football but ultimately these are businesses and they are all ultimately trying to be sustainable (or maybe not)


 

 

08 Jan 2019 21:21:29
Hi Ed's with Man City U21's recently winning their Johnstone's Paint trophy, how come we never agreed to enter?

do you think it is good for their development and do you think we will or should?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea why we didn't enter but I am glad because it has ruined the competition as a competitive entity. So no, it is not good for their development and no we shouldn't enter.}


1.) 09 Jan 2019 10:20:32
Thanks ed!

I guess from a wider perspective and Guardiolas recent comments on building a league.

How do you think we can revamp, again, the U23’s etc to help bridge the gap between youth football and first team?

{Ed001's Note - it will only happen when those outside of the first teams feel they have genuine chances of making it into the first team by playing well. I would say scrapping the loan market and reducing the squad sizes would be the first steps. Then teams would be forced to use their youth players. The reserve teams would then be genuine reserve teams, rather than a last-ditch in-case-of-emergency break glass team after exhausting all possible other options.}


2.) 09 Jan 2019 12:02:16
Thanks Ed!

Agree on loan market Chelsea’s loan army is doing no favours to anyone bar offering great profit opportunities to Chelsea!

Do you think the new proposal of only 6-8 players allowed to be loaned per team will help resolve this?

{Ed001's Note - it will go a small way towards it, but it should go further by just shutting down the loan market as it skews leagues and offers unfair advantages to clubs with links such as Udinese/Watford.}


 

 

02 Jan 2019 10:24:58
Happy new year!

Any update on Brewster?

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I assume you mean about his fitness? Last I heard he was not expected back to playing for a while yet. He had a bit of a setback and his return to training was put back until this month but that might be out of date as it was a while ago I was told that.}


1.) 02 Jan 2019 11:55:27
Yes sorry was meaning fitness!

Thanks!

Wolves for me as second team. They’re excitingly unpredictable but on a good day they can be up with the best. Perhaps they’re missing one key player. Steve Bull. if anyone else remembers those glory days?
Fans wise, we have such a huge presence on the pitch so I’d have to say LFC. Although a big shout out to Dortmund when we played them in the Europa League. incredible atmosphere!
Most hated team. strong words. based solely on the last game, PSG royally ruffled my feathers with how many players acted like tarts! I’ve never seen a more frustrating game as a fan. god knows how our players managed to control themselves André credit to them for doing so.
Ben.

I do indeed remember Steve Bull unclebens, he was there's a bloody long time wasn't he, about 15 years or something like that?

{Ed025's Note - it would have been longer salah only his wife insisted he retire, i believe she was a bit of a cow.. :)

We have 4 CB’s the 5th should be a position that the youth can push for.

I don’t know if you agree Ed but I think he would he more or a reliability than one of the reserves. At least they would be committed to tackling and concentrate!

{Ed001's Note - I would happily let him leave, he is a nice enough lad but lacks a brain.}

Do you think we will ultimately move trent into midfield in the long run?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no indication that there is any intention to do so.}

i think he is doing alright, but you'd have to ask him.

I wasn’t trying to focus on signing. I appreciate discussing finance is difficult as you have to have a certain understanding of numbers and account for costs that aren’t basic knowledge e. g how much a player cost.

Everyone needs to realise we have increasing debt levels and higher wage bills, as Ed has said we have overpaid for a number of signings due Klopp being A grade a ****.

I find it fascinating not just Liverpool but how companies are run, it’s very easy to get lost in the moment of football but ultimately these are businesses and they are all ultimately trying to be sustainable (or maybe not)

Thanks Ed are there any young class talent at Ajax at the moment pre Frenkie de jong?

{Ed001's Note - there is De Ligt and a couple of others but I am not convinced they are all that special. They don't look to be the same quality as in the past.}

We once sent spies out to Blackpool before realising they weren’t in the premier league anymore. Found a decent centre half though.
