Why are both the echo and Sky reporting this Alisson deal as breaking the record that city paid for ederson? It may be the premier league record but the actual record was Buffon back in 2001.

On the subject of Alisson not seen much of him but ed001 seems to rate him highly so thatll do for me.

Also gutted for the ox, the reaction on here shows how integral he became to the squad and hope his recovery goes well.

Reporters only have a 5 second memory, they probably forgot all about Buffon being the worlds most expensive keeper until this deal is completed lol.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 20:04:30
It varies depending on which currency you use because of the fluctuation in exchange rate.

Buffon held the euro record. Ederson held the sterling record. Alisson breaks both records.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 20:39:02
It’s being reported as. PL record.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 21:40:36
Didn’t they pay 52 Euro’s but for Buffon and Lilian Thurman, so for 2 players.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 23:21:08
It’s as Adam said. Buffon, although more Euros, was sold at a time when the £ was much stronger against the €.

Hence Buffon in £ at the time (2001?) is less than Ederson in £ when he was bought last year.

Not much in it, mind.

And when you think about the inflation of transfer fees in the last 15-20 years, Buffons transfer fee was in the Coutinho - Neymar range in today’s market!

What’s most amazing is that, in light of everything, Juve STILL got a bargain!

In regards to the champions league it is a competition we all love but I feel it has also given a way out for many teams including us, to say, we finished top four it’s a good season.

Take champions league out of it and the only thing that should matter is winning the league (which only one team can do a year but you should be damn close in doing so) and winning a trophy.

Why has the champions league become bigger than the domestic league? don't get me wrong 2005 will live long in the memory but as an English club domestic success should be the be all and end all. For instance I’ll remember 08/09 as we came so close and even closer in 13/14 but I don’t remember the other seasons where we scrape 4th. Finishing top should be and always should be the aim with an FA Cup or League Cup (none of this carabao nonsense) .

WYred

1.) 04 Feb 2018 13:31:13
I don't think qualifying for the champions league has taken precedent over winning the title, it's just the minimum requirement from top 6 teams currently. I think if you asked most Liverpool fans they would prefer the domestic title and I think if you asked our owners they would prefer to be the owners that helped give LFC that. Where have you drawn this conclusion that the champions league is more important? It's more important for citeh currently because they haven't won it yet, and you can bet your bottom dollar that every manager within the top 6 absolutely strives to be crowned champions of the premier league, its not like citeh was the only team set out to try for the title this year and the other 5 just wanted top 4. it's just how the season has panned out with citeh being so consistent in results.


2.) 04 Feb 2018 14:04:03
Sorry WYred but surely you understand the financial rewards for UCL qualification and progression due to tv rights sponsorship etc etc. All fans want the big name players at their clubs, those players in turn want paying big money and want to be playing in the most competitive competition there is in club football the UCL. Its sad really that most clubs view the English domestic competitions as a hindrance nowadays due money pure and simple.


3.) 04 Feb 2018 14:44:06
Why not go for both? 🤔.


4.) 04 Feb 2018 16:25:09
I don’t think CL or top 4 has taken precedence over the league at all, but it’s about being able to realistically build a team that can compete. I would take the title over the CL and I would take a title over a top 4 space the following/ previous season. Money isn’t really an issue any more but top players want to play in the CL, end of story, without CL our best players, who we will have usually been forced to nurture ourselves from young talents because of not being able to attract top players, will want to leave for a better chance of winning trophies/ playing CL and so the cycle continues. There are extraordinary events of course, I. e. Leicester but this was an exception, not the rule, and i’ll be amazed if I see similar again in my lifetime. Top 4 and CL is not the be all and end all, but it is necessary to become and stay as a top team. I said at the start of the year Top four for us would be a successful season and I stand by that.


5.) 04 Feb 2018 18:50:44
Because it helps to attract the best new players.


6.) 04 Feb 2018 20:21:32
Correct stoneage 🤝.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 21:43:49
It's not always the case arsenal jus bought abumayang they ain't in champs league an also in 6th, also if u have a manager a player wants too play under that helps as abumayang has said he wanted too play under Wenger an he now playing for arsenal, as vvd wanted too play for Liverpool also.


8.) 04 Feb 2018 23:34:30
Apologies don't think i worded my point correctly. My point was that qualifying for the champions league was considered a success. I. e. we finished top four so we had a good season.

The only measurement for a good season should be winning a trophy. You could argue a title challenge is successful but only if you just miss out. But finishing fourth should not be considered an achievement it is a mere bonus that you have qualified for the champions league.

Obviously champs league has the money and attracts players, and in my original post that question was rhetroical as its money the makes the game go round which is an unfortunate outcome of the game becoming so successful.


9.) 05 Feb 2018 09:59:17
WYred, there's a difference between winning trophies and achieving targets. Both Wigan and Swansea have won major trophies since our last one but clearly they're not better teams than us. So we need a better way of measuring how well we're currently doing and that's the league.

Goals scored is a great measure of our attack, goals conceded of our defence and points of our general standing. If these records are going up or down season by season then that's measure of our progress.

Being in the top four isn't success in itself but it's a target that's shows we're improving. From 2010-16 we made the top four once, hopefully we going to do it for the second time in a row this season, that's progress.

If we start to come top four regularly then we can increase our targets to 'challenge for the title' and if we challenge for the title regularly we can increase our target to 'win the league'. That's the aim but it's a journey.

Saying we're unsuccessful because we didn't win the league is unhelpful as it wasn't a realistic target for us this season. Having a target of 'top four' and achieving that target shows we're on the right track.


10.) 05 Feb 2018 10:59:00
I think for this season if we qualified for champs league 2 seasons in a row that's progression too were we have come from, it shows a level of consistency in the league but obviously we have too take it too the next level in terms of winning leagues an cups, from the top too the bottom of the club as a whole we always should b thinking through the ceiling but these days money is king an we lag behind in that department as there are 5 or six teams as just as wealthy an 3 of them have juggernaut money.


11.) 05 Feb 2018 11:07:41
So the measurement for success is winning a trophy but you’d rather not be in a competition with a trophy up for grabs so you can focus on 3 other comps, at least 2 of which are less prestigious?


12.) 05 Feb 2018 11:35:43
I still don't think you're correct WYred - most people laugh at the few who considers it a success on it's own merit.

However, most things in life happen in steps. We've spent almost a decade out of the Champions League for the most part, so the first step is getting back into it and solidifying our position as regulars. It's a good indication of the path to success - no one really believes its the end goal of it.


13.) 05 Feb 2018 12:09:27
i think top 2 should should qualify automatic for CL and the winner of both cups get the remaining two place.


14.) 05 Feb 2018 12:33:32
Hailstones. aubumayang went to Arsenal because no other big club would buy him and he wanted to move! Also his current club are out the champions league so it made no difference to his current season.


15.) 05 Feb 2018 15:00:27
Tia, mate abumayang is quality he will bag arsenal a lot of goals bet u he has a field day in the premiership, no one wanted Suarez but we did, no one wanted coutihno we did, no one wanted Salah we did, doesn't mean anything they have a world class striker.


16.) 05 Feb 2018 16:11:36
Swish, I never said I don't want to be in the champions league, my point is that you shouldn't meerly aim for top four (you may during the season have to adapt your targets depending on results) but before a ball is kicked the title should be the aim plus any trophy your competing in.

ending a season with just a top four finish can be seen as progress from where we have been but should still be considered an average season at best.

This site is about opinions which over certain things will differ but it is what makes this site so addictive.


17.) 05 Feb 2018 18:36:26
how many clubs, Liverpool included, wish for top four, it brings so many pluses, meaning you have performed well in the bread and butter of the premiership, then to have a good run, in all the cups, hoping to win one of course, really being in the Champions League does attract the better players, and money,
this then means you can then strenghten your team, giving you a better chance to win games,
so the best teams, then have a much better chance of staying up there with the best,
we have just added VVD and Mo Salah, our full back situation looks so much better now, even Karius is improving, we have Kieta coming here in 4 months, Lovren looks good with VVD,
there to me I can see a big improvement,
if we can add a class midfielder, we can def set our sights even higher next season .


18.) 06 Feb 2018 02:24:55
WY, the aim is to win everything we enter, the top 4 is the minimum level we want to be achieving, not maximum. just cos that's what we reference as a milestone doesn't mean that we're only happy competing at that level.

Does anyone know if a player with less than 6 months on their contract can sign a pre- contract agreement outside of the January transfer window?

WYred

1.) 02 Feb 2018 20:36:36
Yes as long as it’s with a club for a different country or FA as far as I’m aware. At least that seems to be the general rule. Need to get the old law manual out!


2.) 02 Feb 2018 20:37:59
Yes, as long as it is a non English side.


3.) 02 Feb 2018 20:52:36
I think players can sign contracts with clubs at any time of the season, the issue is registration to play for that particular club. So yes a player with less than 6 months on his contract can sign a pre contract outside the jan window.


4.) 03 Feb 2018 02:06:44
Fa not country. by the way eds is there any country havin different fa?

{Ed001's Note - any country having different FA from what?}


5.) 03 Feb 2018 11:29:34
“I think players can sign contracts with clubs at any time of the season, the issue is registration to play for that particular club. So yes a player with less than 6 months on his contract can sign a pre contract outside the jan window. ”

Ed002 will correct me if I’m wrong, but players can sign for clubs at any stage of the season as long as the selling club agree to it. Registration can only be transferred during a transfer window.

When a player only has 6 months left on their contract they don’t need to seek the permission of their parent club to sign pre-contract agreements. If it’s within the same FA then a fee needs to be decided - either by agreement or by tribunal (eg Danny Ings)

{Ed002's Note - Right.}


6.) 04 Feb 2018 01:53:56
Livebird31 Swansea and Cardiff are in different FA to country and vice versa.


 

 

02 Jan 2018 18:55:40
Ed002 has played a blinder with wonderdogsparky, my opinion is that Couts is off and VVD has taken his house.

Been confirmed by the club! VVD is a red at 75 mil though i think that is a huge risk and if it doesn't work and we are not challenging next year for trophies klopp will be under massive pressure.

WYred

1.) 27 Dec 2017 18:16:48
We are always challenging for trophies as every club is when the competition starts and managers are always under pressure. Whatever the money bandied about it it's a) irrelevant and b) obscene. You pay what the market rate is which goes up day by day and will do so until the bubble bursts. Opinions are like you know what's - we all have one. If this happens and it's a player that Klopp thinks can improve us then lets' be positive and see where it takes us.


2.) 27 Dec 2017 18:18:57
I really hope it works out well - I want a world class player for that money, I fear we've got merely a good one.


3.) 27 Dec 2017 18:25:23
Great opportunity to try the back 3 with Matip, Gomez, and VVD. wingbacks with options on both sides and a defensive midfielder dropping in to the triangle. Good flexibility and mobility as well as hopefully quick ball movement.

I know Hendo gets a lot of grief but we seem more balanced and dynamic without him in the team, do you think he will stay on or a replacement may be looked at?


4.) 27 Dec 2017 18:29:27
He is quality I am made up but we need more simple as, we need a new qaulify established keeper who we can trust too not make errors, it's not easy but they out there, hope vvd form was cos his head was with us an not because of his injury hell of a lot of money.


5.) 27 Dec 2017 18:31:47
Crazy stuff. But credit where it is due to everyone at the club for resurrecting an all but dead transfer and beating Chelsea and City to him. Am amazed. I think I need a drink!

{Ed002's Note - They did not resurrect a transfer as they never spoke to Southampton about the player regarding a transfer. Manchester City has a lengthy list of CBs they are interested in. Chelsea's interest in a centre back is elsewhere.}


6.) 27 Dec 2017 18:36:25
I highly doubt we will change the system to accommodate VVD. Nearly impossible to incorporate the "Fab Four" in a three at the back system.


7.) 27 Dec 2017 18:39:19
I think he's a decent player and I'm not slating him here.

But SEVENTY FIVE MILLION QUID? ARE YOU MAD?


8.) 27 Dec 2017 18:43:52
Kimos so by definition Swansea are challenging for the title before the season starts then? Without going into the money too much (sorry ed002) 75million is a huge fee (even in the inflated market) and is going to represent a huge investment by the club, one of which I would fully expect the club to think is enough to push the club from top four contenders to title challengers (next season, city are out of sight)
Klopp, when he joined, said he would win the title within three years and the club are trying to give him the tools. It is now down to him to put those tools into practice.


9.) 27 Dec 2017 18:56:08
Overpriced to say the least, that's suarez money! Guess we see if he picks himself up, he's been dog this season!


10.) 27 Dec 2017 20:02:15
Do you want our competitors to spend all the big money and we just buy the £10m and under defenders? We have tried to penny pinch and look what has happened. The signing is a game changer, just what we needed.


11.) 27 Dec 2017 20:02:43
The money goes up all the time WYRed. Each window. To compare prices of previous and recent windows makes little sense. I read earlier that he's not worth 1 Bale or 2 Salahs. At previous window prices Bale didn't have one and Salah is now worth considerably more than £35 or 40m whatever it was. As fans we want the best for our teams and the money we have little or no concept of how it goes. Let it be and hope he turns out alright.


12.) 27 Dec 2017 20:38:44
Great singing I’m dubious about the money spent and have thought there may well be cheaper options out there for a cheaper price but we’ve got him we wanted him first let’s get behind him. A top keeper or one with the potential to be top next and I’ll never ask for anything again.


13.) 28 Dec 2017 00:29:41
Cheaper cheaper cheaper god my post wasn’t great 😂.

Just wanted to put something in perspective, our start to the season would mean we would be top in 18 of the last 26 seasons!

We have had an amazing start, the difference being City have an unbelievable team right now with immense squad depth.

All we can do is concentrate on ourselves, support the team all the way and see where we are in May. We may have the odd blip (Red Star) but we have come so far since the days of Hodgson (David Wash N go and Konchesky anyone? )

This is probably the best squad I’ve seen Liverpool assemble and the standards that have been set are sky high. Seeing people disappointed because we beat Fulham by only 2 goals, may I remind some people that a few seasons ago this was the type of game we were drawing.

Lets enjoy the ride and see what we can achieve at the business end of the season.

WYred

{Ed025's Note - well said mate.. #perspective..


1.) 12 Nov 2018 12:50:27
I do remind myself of past teams. Kyriakgos etc lol. Good servants we’ve had in the past but this is probably the most complete team. Rafa only had a great 11 in 2009.

Well said red.

Ill take 1 and 2 nil wins all season.


4.) 12 Nov 2018 18:59:37
Great post, OP. No need to go back that far. I remember when we were pummeled by CL giants Stoke City 6-1 arguably (the most embarrassing defeat I have ever seen as a Liverpool fan) and how I wanted to pull my hair out and had I been the owner, BR would have gotten his walking papers on the spot. I like many of us, do not have a short memory and that helps me keep things in perspective hence, I never lose my head cos we did not beat Fulham 5-0, as if football was that easy. Up Da Pool!


5.) 13 Nov 2018 00:41:07
Well said WY. The fact is you don’t need to win 5-0. 2-0 will always in every circumstance give you the same amount of points.
Let City wear themselves out trying to rack up cricket scores while we are scoring 2 then putting our comfy slippers on. It’s a long season to go all out like they are until May.
You just have to be there come March and peak at the right time.
Something tells me that’s exactly what we’re going to do.


 

 

11 Nov 2018 09:14:10
A question for Benny or Ed001, Southampton’s ‘offside’ goal yesterday. What’s your opinion on it? For me Yoshida is in an offside position and the keeper stutters because he thinks yoshida is going to get a touch, but everyone else seems to say it was a legitimate goal.

I wish they would tidy the rule up and if your offside your offside, there would be occasions where it would be harsh but it’s too much of a grey area for me.

WYred

{Ed001's Note - according to the laws as they stand, it was a perfectly good goal from what I saw.}


1.) 11 Nov 2018 11:30:42
This is the trouble with the offside rule, there are too many grey areas now. I don’t like the rule where if it’s played back by an opposition player your not offside because the referees are interpreting deflections off defenders as an attempt to play the ball one week and allowing a goal then interpretating it the complete opposite way the next. That Southampton goal stands 9 times out of 10 for me.


2.) 11 Nov 2018 12:35:16
That's the problem, it's all how someone interprets it. On first view I thought legitimate goal on second/ third I thought the keeper stuttered in his movement due to yoshida's position and therefore effecting play and subsequently offside. Offside should just be black and white for me.
Even the phase rule doesn't make sense to me as my argument is by being offside in the first phase they have gained a few yards to be inside in the second.


3.) 11 Nov 2018 13:00:57
That particular decision is irrelevant in my opinion. Hughes slams the officials saying all he asks that they get the game changing decisions correct. Yet he conveniently forgets about the stonewall pen Bertrand should have given away and had a second yellow card.


4.) 11 Nov 2018 13:37:21
From behind the goal you can see that Yoshida is not in the eye line of the keeper, so it should be a goal.

From the position of the linesman, it’s hard to tell if he is in his eye line or not, due to being side on, so you can see why he flagged.

Watford should also have had a peno as 87red says, so on balance a draw is probably fair.


 

 

04 Nov 2018 10:31:47
Think yesterday shows how far Klopp has brought this squad forward. I can’t remember a time when we as fans have been able to be disappointed with a point to a top 6 club, even in the years we have come second.
Klopp has built a team that has the ability to win every game and that should be applauded.
We have had a storming start to the league it’s just two other teams have had similar. As it stands we are in the title race, when only a few years ago by November we would be in a top four battle.
Let’s enjoy the team we have and we move on to red star in the week.

WYred

1.) 04 Nov 2018 11:04:39
Agree
We’ve played City (H) Chelsea (A) Arsenal (A) and Spurs (A) and got 6/ 12 points
Last season those fixtures we got 4.

Recent years we were thinking of top 4 by this stage already

Now we have people throwing toys out of Pram because we haven’t spanked all the teams listed above and sitting at the top of the League.


2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:28:17
I’ve not seen anyone throw their toys out of the pram. I’ve just seen people disappointed with the performance. The result for me was a good one but I’m sure Klopp as well will not be happy with the performance and not for the first time this season.


3.) 04 Nov 2018 12:12:25
JK123 - you don’t look at the live chat on match days then. 😩.


4.) 04 Nov 2018 12:25:59
I think yesterday like has been said already showed the need for a creative midfield player
I would love someone to be brought who can score from long range and pick a pass as well
as we seem to have midfielders who can do one or the other but not both when games are really tight
Shaquiri can but he is more a winger then midfielder imo
Oh to have a player like david silva or Juan mata type.


5.) 04 Nov 2018 12:30:07
Spot on, OP. We are STILL where we want to be 11 games into the season and if City win today, we will still be 2 points off them (instead of 13 points at this stage last season) and that is credit to Klopp, the players and the club for a job well done so far. Did I also mention that we have had the MOST difficult schedule in the PL to start the season?

JK23, The pref. may not have been the best BUT I thought we were effective in both boxes, created the better chances and had the disallowed goal been rightly awarded, we would have had a MUCH better chance of winning. Now as for "having yet seeing fans throwing their toys out of the pram", I invite you to check other fan sites/ SM and see the outright nonsense being spouted. Blooming petulant, spoiled brats these people are.

#UPDDAPOOL!


6.) 04 Nov 2018 12:30:07
I think our last few performances have been a bit average yet we’re still picking up the points. We laboured against Huddersfield, we should have hammered a very poor Cardiff side, and i thought we didn't show what we were capable of versus Arsenal.
Milner, Wiji and Fab are a solid workhorse of a midfield but not the most creative. i've a feeling that when Naby Keita stars hitting form we might see some more dominance in a match.


7.) 04 Nov 2018 16:01:55
You just can't drop points, City are 4-1 up at half time, and they've already beaten arsenal and Spurs away. To win the league you literally have to win every game, City just aren't going to drop points anywhere.


8.) 04 Nov 2018 18:24:39
RedLorry "we did not hammer Cardiff". What is a 4-1 win in your estimation, exactly then? Just curious.

Brover, a 4-1 win is simply four goals scored, one against. It says nothing about the performance. Cardiff were woeful and we should have utterly dominated them. Asit was, we played just above average and scored four. Certainly not a ‘hammering’ imo.

RedLorry, 4-1 is an absolute pasting/ hammering by any metric of football. How you play or if you played well, really does not matter, IMO. I played in a game were we were not at our best YET we won 4-0 (w/ only 4 shots on target in the game) and even our opponents called it a hammering. Cheers, man.

Such a sickening story coming from Leicester tonight, the news we all expected but feared. Thoughts are with everyone at the club, football is a game we all love but these events bring the game into perspective.

May wherever God they believe in bring them to whatever heaven they believe in and rest them in whatever peace they believe in. YNWA.

{Ed0333's Note - Let me echo those sentiments. May those who tragically perished Rest In Peace.

I think with our run of games it is fair to say we have probably had a better start to the season then expected.

I think our change in play is due to Klopp changing things up slightly (think ed001 has eluded to it as well), we now have a defense we can trust and therefore don't have to be on the front foot 100% of the time. Which is a bonus as we are far less likely to burn out come April, when hopefully we are still in the mix.

We have also had a tough run of games so it is more difficult to put in new players or change tactics, sometimes it is better to stick with the devil you know. I'd expect Keita to come in at the very least after the international break to the first 11. Now we have slightly easier games Klopp can tinker without so much fear that it could punish us. Imagine if shaquiri was tried in midfield yesterday and city smashed us, fans would vilify both Klopp and Shaquiri.

My point is we need to be patient, for the first time i can remember we can put in new faces slowly as the depth is in the squad is great. Yes we appear slower in transition but thankfully we don't need to score 4 to win a game any more so we can be more pragmatic. This team may not appear as exciting as they did last season, but i bet against the smaller teams, this squad will run riot, confidence will then sky rocket and teams will not want to face us.

This is just an opinion based on what i've read but,
Marko to turkey, a guess would be Besiktas
Origi to stay, Solanke to go on loan instead
Migs to stay, although ed002 has said his agent is still trying,
Ojo on loan, ideally to championship, can't see playing in france helping him.

I thought once it’s registered it was there for the season, and Ed002 I know he was looking at leaving but wasn’t Besiktas an option for him? Is there many teams left as an option for migs?

{Ed002's Note - His agent has been trying.}

Wish him all the best, I really hope he goes on to have a very good career.

Surely means migs will be kept to jan at least.

WYred

{Ed002's Note - Right, he sure as hell will be unhappy given the work his agent has done.}

sure we said that about ward BE, for me it should be a keeper towards the end of their careers so the young ones can get experience.

a few cup games a year won't benefit them IMO.

not been reading about brexit then?

But your right, Bobby is integral to our system and I can't imagine a player better suited to that role in out first 11.

AJ is pure power and needs to be at the right size or he loses some of his speed, AJ beats Fury IF he can land a big shot, I just think Fury would throw AJ of his game plan and play right into Furys hands. He is an unbelievably tricky fighter and not sure AJ would cope with the circus of the build up. This is one occasion where i hope I’m wrong!

That's the problem, it's all how someone interprets it. On first view I thought legitimate goal on second/ third I thought the keeper stuttered in his movement due to yoshida's position and therefore effecting play and subsequently offside. Offside should just be black and white for me.
Even the phase rule doesn't make sense to me as my argument is by being offside in the first phase they have gained a few yards to be inside in the second.

Didn’t manage to see the fight, seen the knockout though and it looks brutal. Bellew has a lot to be proud of and took a huge fight against Usyk when he could easily of gone for a money fight or an easy win to see it out. No one can take away from him that he has been a world champion, winning it at Goodison no less.
Usyk vs Joshua would be huge but Usyk needs a few fights at heavyweight first and think Fury will be in line first for Joshua. Which is a fight I think fury wins.

{Ed025's Note - yeah WYred tony has had a very good career but its time now to call it a day, i have to disagree with you on fury though mate, AJ beats the living crap out of him for me..
