Hello reds and eds. I honestly don't see us buying both fekir and Alisson Becker. I have a feeling that we'll be signing one of both. this of course doesn't mean one can do the job of the other but putting into context the cost of both transfer coupled with our already existing buys, our bloated squad of players we've had a hard time selling, FFP and of course the added pressure of playing having spent so much in the summer. highest spending spree in one summer in Liverpool history. I think we'll sign only one if them. I think we'll get Becker and that for me sums up a very good window.

Why is there so much focus on money? The club is rich, having hardly spent (Coutinho), and then the CL windfall. There is also loads coming from sales and loan fees (Ings, Sturridge, origi) .


2.) 18 Jul 2018 05:58:46
Rich? You think so? Ed002 has frequently pointed out that we've been 'overstretching' recently.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 06:29:24
That is true Johnny but Ed001 has said that FSG know what they are going in terms of money being spent to me only yesterday.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 06:48:40
The club financial statements speak louder than an opinion. Liverpool are miles away from FFP sanctions because they are rolling in excess cash.
£60m in CL prize money, £150m in EPL prize money, increased gameday revenue after expansion.
The club can afford any players they want.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 08:01:59
Financial statements? the last ones published related to the period up to 31/ 5/ 17 so none of the CL revenue would have been accounted for, plus they showed an increase in net debt of £45m (Up from £22m to £67m) . I'm unsure that the words 'rolling in excess cash' and 'can afford any players they want' are not really true.


6.) 18 Jul 2018 08:19:06
"WE'RE LOADED". Are some of you serious! Get used to big players joining, this is the Klopp effect. We are back people and we are only going to get better and better.


7.) 18 Jul 2018 08:27:54
Yes, in those statements, it was £18m increase in debt while £50m was spent on the stadium and £90m on players. Therefore there is over £100m more available cash this season than that season. Remember that was the season Mane and Wijnaldum were purchased and there was 0 CL revenue.

{Ed001's Note - more cash available? Oh people really do not understand finances do they? Utter nonsense and fantasy figures.}


8.) 18 Jul 2018 08:56:47
I do understand finance. Have a masters in it. The Financial statements are easy to read. Perhaps you should take a look. The actual prize revenues from last season, and available for next are publicly available. Compare the seasons and the facts 1. The stadium isn't being redeveloped again, 2. We have CL revenues - last year substantially higher than what would've been expected and increased for next season, 3. Corporate revenues continue to increase.
How can anyone claim the club isn't cashed up, at least enough to buy 2 more players?

{Ed002's Note - You might want to give your "Masters" back. You clearly have no idea about the Liverpool finances. How much has Liverpool been paid for Coutinho? How much are Liverpool committed to pay for players purchased in the past? How much money is owed on the stadium? Are the wages compliant with FFP?}


9.) 18 Jul 2018 09:28:53
Most of those points are irrelevant - such as debt. There is no debt problem. The Coutinho money is incoming not outgoing. Of course the club is compliant with FFP. It would take a Neymar like purchase to change that.
I guess we will wait and see.
If the club do make 2 big purchases in the next 6 months, I do expect to see some sort of statement of how little you guys understand of business finance. To claim that an extra £100+m in revenue won't effect the clubs recruitment is laughable.

{Ed001's Note - you really have no idea what you are talking about at all. This is embarrassing. Have you even considered the increase in the wages at all? No because you are wasting everyone's time with pure ignorance.}


10.) 18 Jul 2018 09:55:01
Christ christos your coming across as a right smug git.


11.) 18 Jul 2018 10:09:18
He is - from the clubs own website:

"following the continued cash investment in players and capital infrastructure, net bank debt increased by £22m to £67m"

so borrowing increased to buy players and, I'm guessing, to do the stadium work.


12.) 18 Jul 2018 10:19:08
When it comes to finances I'd trust what the Ed's say and know because they will understand a lot more than us fans!

{Ed001's Note - I have to say it is Ed002 that knows his stuff in this regard, he taught me a lot in our early discussions on the site, which is why I asked him to become one of the first group of editors.}


13.) 18 Jul 2018 10:26:36
Reference club finances, I am really quite relaxed about how a group of billionaire businessmen, with a proven track record of the successful management of another huge sporting institution, are managing LFC. They haven’t done such a bad job so far.


14.) 18 Jul 2018 10:39:37
Wirral Wonder - agree on FSG so far, absolutely, I think they are doing a great job. It does make me laugh when folk say things like 'we can buy who we want', that's just BS, we're really nowhere near the spending power of MCFC, MUFC, PSG, RM, etc.


15.) 18 Jul 2018 12:47:34
We won't be spending the amount we have been spending recently, year on year anyway. I may be wrong but in my mind we're building a stock of top players to attain the success required to keep the club ticking over with top players as they come and go over the years. Large up front payment now, increase club status, revenue increases, club competes at a regular higher level and becomes self sustaining. Possibly risky, but these guys are pros and know what they are doing. The debt is nothing to worry about. Pretty much anyone who owns a house has debt. It doesn't mean that the debt is indicative of any financial plight, more a means to an end.


 

 

18 Jul 2017 15:02:10
hey guys
i just read a report that a loan deal has been agreed for Ojo to fulham. does that mean our broken relationship with fulham has been repaired?
i think it will be good if this deal goes through not just will ojo get good playing time but it looks like a conscious effort of the club to rebuild their relationships and make amends as their are better clubs out there ojo could have gone to.

heir_to_matuidi

{Ed002's Note - It was brokered by his "representative" who doesn't want him to leave Liverpool for good. I understand the player did not want a loan to Middlesbrough although Newcastle may yet be an option.}


1.) 18 Jul 2017 16:15:25
Newcastle is probably his best option although I'd worry about game time.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 18:09:00
which means it's probably not his best option.


 

 

02 Jun 2017 13:12:53
Eds I really do not want to seem lazy so I checked buh couldn't find anything. did we actually make a 28mill£ for Salah? . I see it every where but seeing it here will make me believe it. if true then I'm sure we'll reach an agreement with Roma sooner or later.

heir_to_matuidi

{Ed025's Note - i believe that is the case HTM and i think an agreement can be reached mate..


1.) 02 Jun 2017 14:14:44
Considering they are talking about 50m for Perisic if we can get Salah for 35m who is 5 years younger and coming off a more productive season I think that's decent business.

{Ed025's Note - so do i craig..


2.) 02 Jun 2017 14:34:58
I think £35m for Salah is good business all day long. The lad really wants to come and it was our fault it went wrong before. Him and Mane on either flank will be a nightmare to defend against.


3.) 02 Jun 2017 14:47:38
Transfered salah to liverpool last ight and let me tell you. It works.

Salah on the left abd mane on the right wowza. Haha.


4.) 02 Jun 2017 14:50:04
I agree though it was in slower paced Italy he scored 15 and assist wise 11, in 29 starts and 2 sub appearances, he can play anywhere across the atrack C/ L/ R, so that's more than decent stats wise he is also a very willing defensive runner he will track back close down and try to tackle, 35m I say yes.

I love this Rebic lad.
He'll be good for us.
Any one with knowledge on his style of play, STRENGHTS and weaknesses prior to the world cup should please enlighten us.

heir_to_matuidi

1.) 12 Jul 2018 12:17:30
Good pace, good skills, not the best finishing and has problems keeping his cool. He gets carded for stupid challenges too much.

He was one the most exciting players last year in the Bundesliga for me and was a crucial part of Frankfurts success (Won the dfb cup against bayern and scored a goal as well) .

He would be a decent addition as a back up for 20-25mil (which is reportedly his asking price) .


2.) 12 Jul 2018 12:23:46
I also like the lovren guy they have got to sign him ASAP
. oh!
should have got Rakitic in the deal for pipco.


3.) 12 Jul 2018 12:43:39
He’s a Burnley player all day long.


4.) 12 Jul 2018 12:57:38
Rakitic was tired last night. I always look at their faces in the line up, close up (national anthems) in big big games. You can see some of them couldn't sleep. Rakitic had massive bags under his eyes and his nerves looked frayed. He was pretty poor in the game.

Modric looked fresh as a daisy. Lovren did too. Hendo looked tired and trippier. Their keeper looked knackered.


5.) 12 Jul 2018 14:04:07
PH, their player played with a bad hamstring and the fact that England NEVER tested him with crosses from wide to test that hamstring, tells you how useless tactically England were.

As for Rebic, he reminds me of a more skillful Dirk Kuyt. He is a dribbler, pacy, can score goals BUT has a hot head which is normal cos he is a fighter, will run all day and gets stuck in, just like our Dirk. Would not mind him at all.


6.) 12 Jul 2018 14:39:44
Loved it when Lovren was mouthing off to Kane after a succesfull slide tackle. 😊.

{Ed025's Note - should have been sent off the dirty git..


7.) 12 Jul 2018 14:54:24
Totally agree brover. If we could get a dirk kuyt type player I would be over the moon. Firmino reminds me of kuyt sometimes. He's more skillful but he too is a battler, and the way he chases lost causes and gets stuck in. God bless dirk kuyt.

Yeah, England looked lost after Croatia scored their first.


8.) 12 Jul 2018 16:27:56
I like him too. He's Diego Costa light.


9.) 12 Jul 2018 15:11:25
Oh Comon ed025. Not a chance lol.

{Ed025's Note - he was very dirty Tj, a stronger ref would have dealt with him and he could not try to kick anything that moved then...but thats what players with limited ability do i suppose..


 

 

28 Mar 2018 22:55:56
Good work Eds
Any news on Robertson's injury?
I'd really hate for us to loose him especially at this business end of the premier league season and our champions league fixtures against City. A section of supporters still blame our 13/ 14 2nd place finish to the loss hendo and I strongly think loosing Robbo can have a similar effect.

heir_to_matuidi

{Ed0333's Note - do you seriously think the deity Andrew Robertson is that influential to our team mate? I’m perplexed, incredulous and have peed my pants because of laughing so hard but the pee is largely to do with a prostrate issue attributed to old age and not your comment per-se


1.) 29 Mar 2018 04:39:31
He's good and we will miss him but not as much as hendo.


2.) 29 Mar 2018 06:24:21
I hope to God Robbo is available. I don't trust Moreno at all, particularly on big occassions.


3.) 29 Mar 2018 07:07:10
Wouldn't surprise me to see Milner at LB. How he'd go against Sterling's pace though I don't know.


4.) 29 Mar 2018 07:15:02
I agree OP.


5.) 29 Mar 2018 08:29:21
You just know Moreno is going to have a brain fart. Robertson has been reliable and sound defensively since coming in.


6.) 29 Mar 2018 09:19:36
I sit much more comfortably knowing that Robertson is at left back as apposed to Moreno.


7.) 29 Mar 2018 09:41:42
Robbo has made plenty of mistakes, been caught upfield loads. Lucky we haven't been punsihed for it.


8.) 29 Mar 2018 10:37:42
We don't miss hendo. Massively over rated and doesn't offer much in my opinion. Always disappointed when he is in the team.


9.) 29 Mar 2018 11:31:49
then you know very little about football lfcdiamond1.its my opinion just like yours, we all got one.


10.) 29 Mar 2018 13:16:30
Robertson all day every day over Alberto
in a crisis I would go to milner over Alberto as well.


11.) 29 Mar 2018 14:35:16
I can see Moreno playing V Palace on Sat, but Robbo should be back to play a stormer V City .


12.) 29 Mar 2018 08:36:56
TMI gramps, TMI.

{Ed0333's Note - You’ll be there soon mate when you are I recommend a medication called Flomax or a nappy.


13.) 29 Mar 2018 18:30:01
Watch. Moreno wilk kill it against Palace and you'll all have to eat your words.


14.) 29 Mar 2018 19:07:32
Robertson is not as influential as Moreno is detrimental and that is the trouble.


15.) 31 Mar 2018 04:53:07
Nostramus mate. yeah I must know very little about football because my opinion differs from yours. nice one!

Hello eds and posters
So gutted we have to wait an extra week to watch our beloved team play again.

With Big Emre leaving and probably the sale of Adam Lallana, I think we are only 3 signings away from being a world class team.
I for think we should go all out this summer and get a solid RB I can't think of any right now but I trust klopp and the scouting team to identify someone really good.
I also think we need a Cout replacement maybe Lemar or someone with flair who could change a game from the deep end when we play deep sitted teams and can also rotate with our front 3 in case we have injuries or fatigue.
Lastly I think we need another solid CM.
We know Klopp is not a fan of the orthodox DM. So we need a combative CM as Hendo and injuries tend to keep in touch once every while. Doucore comes to mind

Big shout out to MK
I enjoy your posts
Then big Al and negative red.

heir_to_matuidi

1.) 19 Mar 2018 11:35:20
I hope we don't sell lallana, why are people talking of selling him when he is in his prime? He's a proper good player. I wouldn't want to sell him to spurs who would probably be interested.


2.) 19 Mar 2018 11:59:41
I don't see liverpool making loads of signings in the summer. The rise in transfer fees will make it more difficult for the spurs and Liverpools of the world. 50mil for a decent player? It seems like yesterday when ginis 22mil price tag seemed massive.

I reckon we will sign a rb but would be happy to see gomez and trent get another season. I don't actually think Clyne is too bad either. I think we need another cm along with keita. It is not lallana I would be looking to sell, it would be milner or gini.

I don't think we need it but I wouldn't be surprised if we signed another cb.


3.) 19 Mar 2018 12:13:33
Fully agree with your post ss mate apart from Clyne not been too bad, personally I can't wait to see the back of him, he'd be the first out the door for me.


4.) 19 Mar 2018 13:16:09
I think Clyne massively benefited from being the successor of Glen Johnson, a player with limited ability and who spent the last 2-3 years of his LFC Career not even trying. As memory faded Clyne has been more exposed to his own deficiencies and baring the odd panic when one of our younger options has a howler moment, there isn't much support for bringing him back in as a long term option.


5.) 19 Mar 2018 15:18:54
Cheers mate. And good post! I'd love Doucoure. He did say he liked Arsenal, but I can only assume he hasn't watched them since about 2008 😂.


6.) 19 Mar 2018 15:24:58
I dunno, he is not my favourite player by any means but he is the senior rb at the club. Klopp has improved players so much they are almost unrecognisable, perhaps Clyne will come good?


7.) 19 Mar 2018 17:27:10
I think lallana should be given one more year. Maybe not a starter but a little bit of quality off the bench. Have a great day heir to matuidi.


8.) 19 Mar 2018 17:59:54
Yeah, a very good impact sub when fully fit. England always look a different team when he comes on.


9.) 19 Mar 2018 18:02:14
RB I would love meunier (spelling) PSG rb, I think he is quality. Alternatively I have been impressed with Vrsaljko from a Madrid, seen a fair bit of them recently and he looks a solid player.
As for CM Jorginho would be great and Doucoure is a good option too. Then Lemar or draxler as the Coutinho replacement.
GK - I want abc experienced GK to be back up to Karius, handanovic would be my choice.
Potential additional signings - another winger to add cover for Mane and Salah.
Then maybe a CB for me would have to be a quality player to come in and replace Matip + Lovren. With Gomez as 3rd choice CB and Klavan as 4th choice. Then promote a youth player. Potentially I would keep one of Matip or Lovren
GK next season - Karius, handanovic
RB - Meunier/ Vrsaljko and TAA
CB - VVD, new CB, Gomez and Klavan
LB - Robbo and Moreno
‘CDM’ - Jorginho and Hendo
CM - Keita, Lemar/ Draxler, Ox and Gini
RW - Salah / back up for both wings
St - Firmino, Solanke and Ings/ Brewster
LW - mane/ back up for both wings
So 21 players there and potentially 22 if one of Matip or Lovren stay.
For me that’s team is quality and challenges for multiple trophies. Buzzing for next season. YNWA.


 

 

14 Sep 2017 11:50:39
how can you say you're not entirely sure a new defender will fix this.
we don't have a problem defending as a team, we have a problem conceding goals mostly from individual lapses of mostly lovren and matip. how can you then say a new defender won't fix this?
you're are either just really blind or scarily deluded. we just need a two confident defenders who can play football and not just look like it. what is wrong with actually going to the market and getting two people out of the millions of footballers in world football who can actually defend?
freaking go to the market and pay whatever it cost!
this is just appalling!
lovren, klavan should never play for liverpool after january.
i can't ever remember a time when i was actually happy with lovren bar the semi final goal against bvb in the europa last year.
gosh! we don't deserve this! i'm so sad
everytime i get happy this defence just shames me.
i love this club so much, so much so that anytime we don't perform well it ruins my day at the office the next day. it is so visible people ask me if i'm sick.
please liverpool, make me happy, make us happy, let's us be proud again.
i don't want to shed a tear so i'll stop here.

heir_to_matuidi

1.) 14 Sep 2017 12:25:03
I think the problems run deeper than simple replacements though I truly hope I'm wrong because buying a new pairing at the back would be a lot easier than changing up what's happening now. At set pieces I think the zonal marking is easily exploitable. I also think we leave far too many players in the box so it gets crowded- in open play there's zero protection from midfield. I can't defend moments like lovren clangars but if there wasn't such a nervousness every time a team attacked the back line may not make as many errors as they do. I would however like to see ward and karius compete and let migs sit on the bench to remind him of the 5 good games he had at the end of last season. On top of that, I'd like to see Gomez in the middle with a passionate matip and taa allowed to learn his craft.


2.) 14 Sep 2017 12:28:44
Many will agree we need new CB's but what do you expect klopp to say in an interview?

"I know our defence is shite and I massively regret not signing 3 new cb's to get rid of the shite we already have"

Yeah, because I can see that working in his favour too!

One bit of advice, learn to chill out a bit. If bad results is all it takes to make you physically sick and ruin your life go watch cricket because I'm sorry to say it, we won't win every single game we play and life is too short.

Taxi.


3.) 14 Sep 2017 12:54:16
so if we can't win every single game we should not bother getting over view across then? . why cricket? do you think the fans who watch cricket are not passionate? silly post to say the least.


4.) 14 Sep 2017 13:29:22
Crazy horse, cricket is a much more relaxing game so don't try and make out it's not.

The OP said he feels physically sick and depressed every time we lose. I don't enjoy it either, but it's unavoidable I'm afraid so people should stop the contsant bitching every time we make a mistake or lose/ draw.

Well we will lose a few ganes this year and beyond so to save him the STRESS, he should watch a much less STRESSFUL sport. And btw, I like cricket.


5.) 14 sep 2017 13:42:50
i don't expect liverpool to win all games, but i expect us to stop making basic mistakes. despite the beauty in our attacking set up, the defence is plane crap!
we are liverpool!
we are liverpool for crying out loud!
if i were mane, i'd be soo angry cos after all my effort upfield plus my inputs at helping the lb defend, you guys can't still protect a lead. it's just crazy!


 

 

01 sep 2017 09:44:39
its the close of another transfer window and of course a lot of people aren't satisfied with our transfer window in general. a lot of people feel we could have done better or misses the opportunity to have a perfect transfer window, i don't think any club in europe got all the players they wanted without loosing some of their prized assets bar psg.
i think our window was good, not excellent but good and i think its a start of something good, from players making us their preference to us keeping our stabd on phil (hopefully) and not flinching from our main targets to get poor alternative.
i think liverpool football club despite their short coming as regards the tapping up which i think we've learnt from used this window to make a statement, to let world football know we are back.
it doesn't have to be perfect. it just has to be good enough and i think we were. credit where due edward, klopp, fsg, obrigado.
i see us comfortably getting top 4 and at least getting to the quater finals of the ucl. maybe a domestic cup too
hopefully we'll address our other shortcomings in subsequent windows and we'll be a force to reckon with again.
special shout out to ed o1,02,25 and macca
you guys have been awesome
heir to matuidi says so. blaaaahhh.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}


1.) 01 Sep 2017 10:33:40
Spot on, Matuidi. No club gets all they want in a TW. Even Perisic snubbed Utd and City did not get Sanchez so we are all in the same boat, really. The main question is are we better than we were last summer overall and the answer is a resounding YES. We had issues at FB last season and now they are more than covered mostly from within. We had issues out wide and they are fixed. We needed depth in midfield and we are sorted. Our attack is improved and more devastating than last season. We sort Cou's head out and we are all set.

The defence? We all wanted a CB to come in BUT we messed that up with the tapping up crap so we will have to continue to improve those we have here and get better with every game mind you, this defence has kept 7 clean sheets in the last 9 PL games so we are on the right track. We just have to keep working hard on defending set pieces and being harder to break down as well esp. on the road vs big teams. all in all, we are way ahead of where we were when Klopp arrived and that should be exciting for all of us. Thanks to the Ed's as well for all they do as they make me smarter regarding LFC every day.
