hi eds any truth in the Maxi Romero link.

grino75

{Ed025's Note - liverpool have been looking at him grino but as yet have not made an offer mate..


1.) 18 Jul 2017 11:16:48
Yes, but have we agreed terms with him yet? The offer can follow at some point 😉.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 11:51:50
I think we'll face a serious WP issue.


3.) 18 Jul 2017 11:55:19
Now I'm reading he had a CL injury. to get this kind of injury at 16 years of age. poor lad.


4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:37:15
Mammana and Romero - that's two players I signed in FM that were linked with us over the summer.

Which journo's raided my save? Expect links to Ben Davies, Lincoln, Konrad Laimer and Andre Schurrle soon.


5.) 18 Jul 2017 19:36:38
Lol -Something Red-

I guess since I haven't played FM for a few years they have moved onto new people xD

I signed Coutinho on FIFA13 and FM because he was called Phil and had crazy hair like me when I get out of bed. My dad always said laughing, "It’s you" every time we came across him in UT so we had to get him.

Then half a year later we signed him an wow what a signing!
Guess I need to find us some gems again haha

Anyway back on track, if we are going to buy a striker we only need a proper ready made 20+goals striker. We have enough young prospects all trying to break through and Solanke has already pushed some down.


 

 

30 Sep 2016 20:54:07
hi eds anything in the new link to Inaki Williams or just old recycled news?

grino75

{Ed001's Note - well we have continued to have him tracked, but I don't know of anything new in the pipework just now. I would not expect him to go anywhere until next summer, at the earliest. Bilbao have no reason to sell, so it would require the player wanting a move. They don't need the money, as they can't spend it on players.}


1.) 01 Oct 2016 08:19:57
Looks are real talent would mean someone would have to leave for us to sign him.


2.) 04 Oct 2016 19:16:18
Worth noting that Williams is born and bred in Bilbao, a proud Basque player, and even if we were to offer an acceptable fee (which would likely have to match the release clause of 50mil Euros) there is a strong possibility he'd simply not be interested. Very good player though, would suit the Premier League (and us) well.


 

 

20 Mar 2016 08:15:53
hi all eds are we looking at Koln duo Timo Horn and Jonas Hector or more paper talk.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}


 

 

01 Oct 2014 09:35:23
hi eds any truth in the Dele Alli rumour?

grino75

{Ed002's Note - He has extended his contract and it will be best for him if he stays where he is for a while. I am not aware of what "rumour" there might be right now, but Liverpool are very keen (as we have discussed before) - there is interest from elsewhere including Spurs and West Ham.}


 

 

29 Apr 2014 08:04:38
after sundays defeat were we did look a bit one dimensional. would there be any chance of buying rickie lambert?

grino75

1.) This sort of post really annoys me. Having a big man does not Plan B make. Was removing Lucas not plan B? And going 3 at the back Plan C. Throwing the ball into the box when Chelsea have half a dozen players who are like Giant Red Woods is not a plan. It's desperation.


2.) Unless Rickie Lambert can prove String Theory, I don't see how he can change the dimensions we live in.

Only a joke.


3.) Ha. Thanks mate I've needed some cheering up after Sunday.


4.) Actually I do think if Lambert were available at a reasonable price and is willing to be in a bit of a secondary role for us (and I have no idea if either is true), he would be a pretty good pickup as a third choice striker. He's decent in the air, but he also is pretty good with the ball at his feet and has a fair amount of assists/chances created for Soton this season so he's not purely a target man per se.

i don't get the comment Coutinho has done a lot for us. if some one was to pay me £150000 a week I would do more than play football for them. I feel these players forget where they came from and the next time coutinho plays he should look round the ground and think these fans that I say I feel so much for that are paying my wages. about 98% of them won't earn than in about 5 years work. and in brazil with the wages of about £230 a month. as for a south American dreams of playing for Barcelona or real that's bull they a dream of playing in Europe because they know that's where the money is that's why some will go play in the Ukraine or some other league like that none of them won't to play there as kids its all about the money driven by agents.

grino75

1.) 21 Aug 2017 08:03:59
Unfortunately Grino the whole game is driven by money. I don't think we'll ever see one club players like Carra or Gerrard again. I know they were handsomely rewarded for staying at the club but it's very rare that neither had their head turned. Gerrard did at one point and could have gone to Chelsea and won the title but he didn't. He stayed.
Loyalty is non existent when money and agents are concerned. They're all vultures but it's a business and like any business if you spend £8 mill on a player and someone offers £113 mill then you've made £105 mill profit over 4/ 5 years on that player. There's no where else that gets you a return like that. Footballers are transient and they come and go. Better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

{Ed002's Note - Gerrard went to LAG.}


2.) 21 Aug 2017 08:14:19
Loyalty is directly proportional to ( trophies / titles, Money )
We have money but do not have the other two!


3.) 21 Aug 2017 09:44:34
Ed002 - Gerrard moving to LA is completely different. John Terry moved to Villa, would you call him loyal to Chelsea? Gerrard left because his game time was being managed and he wanted to play every week. He doesn't have too many questions to answer in my book regarding loyalty.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what it has got to do with John Terry or with loyalty. The message said that Gerrard was a "one club player" - he wasn't.}


4.) 21 Aug 2017 10:09:20
Give a player enough of a financial incentive and watch his 'loyalty' evaporate. Even Le Tissier would probably be earning mega-bucks in China if he was still playing.
There aren't many hometown players playing for their local clubs anymore so why would a Brazilian kid hang around Liverpool when he has the chance of a huge payday, guaranteed trophies and plenty of sunshine and sangria?


5.) 21 Aug 2017 10:33:45
Voronins

Coutinho is on a mega salary at Liverpool and I don't see him moving to any money rich clubs in England or overseas. He has not made himself available for any random suitors who will double his wages. And I don't see him earning £300k per week at Barcelona either. You could blame him for anything except MONEY. He is not money driven. For his class and quality he would be paid good at any club including Liverpool. If it was about money he would easily get another pay rise at liverpool. He could move to Chelsea or City for a pay rise!

The Lad wants Barcelona and only Barcelona. Nothing to do with MONEY and Barcelona competes for titles year in year out!


6.) 21 Aug 2017 11:27:48
Carra is a farce. ask yourself would you ever see Gerrard donning an everton top for BT money, he'd tell BT to p off. as soon as sky waved the cash at carra he became another football puppet.


7.) 21 Aug 2017 12:14:24
Ed002 they call it soccer in America so he went and played another sport!


8.) 21 Aug 2017 12:41:49
We can't Defend ( maybe you need to change your name to We can't Read) as I said, payday, trophies, sunshine, sangria.
And of course, Coutinho would love to play for Barcelona for half his current wages if need be because he only wants to play for them and its nothing to do with money, right?


9.) 21 Aug 2017 12:57:19
He wouldn't need to take a pay cut at Barca! They would pay him what he deserves for! He is no small fish mate. They see him as the next INIESTA and I have not seen anyone across 10 leagues in Europe who would replace Iniesta.
You could ommit pay day from the list! The rest make sense. The most important is TROPHIES!

He could have all those at Real Madrid as well! Is he moving there?


10.) 21 Aug 2017 12:59:44
@Chango

Did Stevie G not release his autobiography in the $un?
Give me an Everton top any day over that and Everton were his boyhood club.


11.) 22 Aug 2017 01:33:44
Maldini was a 1 club player And perhaps my fave ever player (Non Liverpool of course) and Buffon is my fave gk they are two very loyal players.


 

 

20 Aug 2017 09:58:41
hi ed001 if VVD and naby became available for about £140m-£160m would we have the money to sign both or would we need to sell coutinho. if we go and win Wednesday things will change with funds and players wanting to come.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - it is not that simple. How would the payment terms be structured for that money? Would that be an outright payment or be including add ons? Does that include fees? Etc etc.}


1.) 20 Aug 2017 10:21:25
That's crazy money for both players. Utterly crazy.


2.) 20 Aug 2017 10:21:36
like you said before ed001 the money is to complicated to explain. I was just wondering with maaca's comments that he expected both one more. and to keep phil and which would have been one hell of an outlay by the club. with all the hidden fees that you tells us about that people don't seem to take into account. thanks again ed001.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure that the club would find a way to get the money for both. It might mean loans, but the income from the new TV deal does allow us more flexibility, though it could well impact future transfer windows if we spend too much.}


3.) 20 Aug 2017 10:22:43
Your right Ed don't talk to us about money it does confuse us. Anyway most of us on here need to take our shoes and sock's off to count above 10.

{Ed002's Note - I had always susprected Liverpool supporters had many more toes than most.}


4.) 20 Aug 2017 11:24:19
Eds I know you don't like talking finance but seems as the can of worms is already open here thought I would chance my arm. Regarding the tv money that all clubs get. Is that a 1 off payment of the full lot or is it spread out over a season or longer.

{Ed002's Note - It is paid in two amounts.}


5.) 20 Aug 2017 11:42:34
Cheers for the reply ed.


 

 

16 Aug 2017 11:26:49
hi ed001 what do you think about william carvalho with transfer fees at the way they are £40m seem ok if what they say about him is true. I myself have not seen enough of him but he is dm that we could do with as everybody seems to think.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I remain unconvinced by him personally. I have seen him look an absolute donkey and really sluggish, though people rave about his speed and power.}


1.) 16 Aug 2017 11:44:38
He is a typical Rafa Benitez player and I am surprised he did not move in for him! Proper stopper and nothing more nothing less!


2.) 16 Aug 2017 11:45:11
haha ed 001 classic!


3.) 16 Aug 2017 12:00:14
It's his lack of pace that will be his undoing in the prem I think, he also has a bit of a reputation for being lazy which is an awful trait for a holding midfielder.
The best holding midfielder in the prem (up there with the best in the world) is Kante, imagine if he was slow and lazy?
He however seems really strong and I remember watching him in the u21 euros a few years back thinking he would become a beast, its obvious he hasn't kicked on as he seems to be heading to West Ham and not a big European club. There is obviously a reason for this.


4.) 16 Aug 2017 12:24:12
SInce he broke his leg he hasn't seemed half the player. He's slower and less prone to tackle.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 18:51:27
got to get him out now tell them what we want and don't back down on price.
don't want to hear how he loves the club he is just a player that has no feelings for the club. but I don't hold that against players. if its not your club you will not feel what fans feel for the clubs. and when teams are finished with them they don't care to much about them unless they can get something more out of them. but club needs to move fast now wasted a lot of time this window.

ed002 now the second bid of £90m has been turned down. do expect them to come back or move on. I can't see PSG selling Verratti so who would they turn to next I know they have the £200m burning an hole in there pocket and they need to flecks there muscles after the way they lost Naymar and they don't normal lose players they won't to keep last one like that must have been Luis Figo and that was 17 years ago.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what their plan is now. They might well look again at Verratti given PSG need to raise funds and are looking at a further significant buy.}


1.) 09 Aug 2017 23:12:48
May I ask who, In the words of Del Boy, is the significant other.

{Ed025's Note - mbappe i would think benny..


2.) 10 Aug 2017 00:40:11
Bit surprised Barcelona are not pushing aggressively for Verratti. He is their 1st choice and PSG need to sell so clearly have better chance of "Nabbying" him than Coutinho.


3.) 09 Aug 2017 23:49:30
Why won't PSG sanction Verratti leaving Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Because they want to keep him.}

ed001 do you think Ojo has a future at Liverpool or do you think his time has gone. if his time is gone and he has a successful time at fulham do you think he could be part of a deal next summer for Sessegnon?

what is it with fans and sakho being are best defender the same fans that say VVd is not that good. am all for support your players but saying there better than they are is just stupid that's why we do not win any thing overhyped players getting paid to much money. Lucas was another one was not good enough but at least he was a model professional Sakho is just trouble and not worth the space in the squad. bamby on ice just another Balotelli but without the talent.

ed002 want Southampton going to report Chelsea to. earlier on in the window about tapping VVD up. if so will this not deter them from making a bid to?

grino75

{Ed002's Note - No, Chelsea (and Arsenal) asked Southampton about his availability and were told he was not for sale. However, they would be interested if he came up for sale.}}

dirty tricks from Barcelona thinking they can do what they like if what is said is true could we put a complaint in to fifa along with Dortmund I know we can't hold are heads up to high with our antics but that seems just as bad to me don't think we have been telling players of other clubs what to do to try and force moves.
