Reports in a daily rag that shall forever be used as toilet paper seem to put Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal chief execs in a "secret" meeting in London about a new break away league as the Eds have suggested in the past. From what has been said in the past it would seem Liverpool were never in the mix for the new Pan European League but if this meeting with American Ross - who put together the ICC is to be believed - then we seem to be a front runner. Or is this just someone who is trying to take advantage of UEFA's turmoil with their own idea of a Pan European League to make a lot of money?

{Ed002's Note - This is the original counter proposal backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin which is soon to be tabled that I mentioned before. This is an option to the breakaway as everyone now knows the reality of it. The proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. However, UEFA are now considering yet another proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL.

Sounds very complicated. I guess it's wait and see now. Thanks for the input Ed.

{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with in great detail here over the past three or four years - search on breakaway.}

2.) 02 Mar 2016 10:44:23
This is scary.

3.) 02 Mar 2016 10:48:00
If this said meeting was regarding a proposal backed by UEFA, then how is the original European super league idea any different to this counter proposal? From what I see, both proposals pitch an idea of an exclusive, pan-European league with a fixed number of teams.

{Ed002's Note - It is radically different in terms of the teams that might be involved, the running of it and the people looking to fund it. UEFA gave this support, as they are doing with another proposal, to save their own asses.}

4.) 02 Mar 2016 11:51:01
HI EDS if this does happen what will happen with the other comps like the F. A. Cup.

{Ed002's Note - It will continue without any clubs who leave the league.}

5.) 02 Mar 2016 12:35:42
To me the scariest thing would be places being fixed for some teams - the top comp should always be earned. As much as I love LFC, imagine if this had happened a few years ago and we had spent the last 5 years getting in over Arsenal who had never won it? Would be a killer for the sport as the competition would be so uneven, there wouldn't even be a point in fighting for the prizes and the whole concept of every team being in it to win it all dies.

6.) 02 Mar 2016 12:36:22
A European Super League also begs the question.
How much more money will the supporters of these teams be screwed for, to watch televised matches?

7.) 02 Mar 2016 14:32:38
I'd be very interested to see this develop further. From the bits of info I've read on here (and I'm not pretending to fully understand it all either) this would allow the most marketable teams in the world - of which we're still one - to better access that revenue. Without other details it's daft to suggest that it'll be a bad idea anyway. Plus anything that gets us back at the top table with Barcelona etc ought to be explored.

{Ed001's Note - god no. It is purely about greed and money. Places in Europe should be earnt by winning, not by virtue of having a big name. It is like the moronic thinking that sees the world stuck with monarchies that offer no use or value but get to be there purely because of who they are, not because they deserve anything. Everyone and everything should earn what they get.}

8.) 02 Mar 2016 16:17:51
Imagine the cost of following your team every other week across Europe, that's just not sustainable. Wouldn't it result in half empty stadiums?

9.) 02 Mar 2016 17:17:37
Would possibly be home fans only accept the few odd away fans who could possibly travel now and again but at least anfield with soon to be over 50 000 fans would be pretty awesome :p.

10.) 02 Mar 2016 18:50:10
I would imagine the away tickets would be supply on demand up to around 10% of the capacity of the stadium or something?

11.) 03 Mar 2016 02:42:02
As the premier league is the currently biggest earning league is there any chance that it's actually in the interest of English teams to remain the premier league? One could imagine that over time the higher earnings generated by premier league teams would increase the wealth gap between themselves and the rest of Europe. What I am asking I suppose that if the premier league is currently "winning" why change anything?
Also agree with the poster above who thinks that attendances would be s concern due to travel costs. I for one hope this never happens.

{Ed001's Note - it would be very much in the interest of the Prem teams in the short term. The issue is whether that is sustainable in the long term or whether a super league would eventually begin to gather up the less avid fans and the new arrivals in the long term.}



03 Jan 2015 09:13:27
Any legs in the Defoe to LFC on loan till the end of the season rumours? Personally I think he'd get us goals. I reckon the player would like the move too and is definitely better than, Borini, Mario and Lambert and would suit our game.

{Ed001's Note - he was offered and it was rejected, at least initially.}

1.) 04 Jan 2015 00:16:27
Luis Muriel! to replace Borini.

Eds, are FSG still looking to move the club on in the near future or do you think they will keep us for the foreseeable? I just remember something on here that alluded to the hearsay around maybe a Chinese ownership bid. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No, the time is not right.}

1.) 04 Oct 2017 15:31:11
Made in China? No thanks.

Ed001 I'm interested to hear your thoughts on Henderson. Captain? leader? Quality? Etc. For me he hasn't had any of those for a while and might never have had. I can't keep saying the jury's out. He's had enough time to be the captain we all want.
Who would you have?

{Ed001's Note - I am not getting into this, people are on his back but seem to be forgetting how much football he has missed. You only have to look at Iborra, last season he was captain of Sevilla and his stats were good enough to make Leicester want to sign him, yet he was utterly abysmal last night on his return from injury. He was only out a few weeks! Henderson, like Coutinho, needs time on the pitch to play his way back to form. As for captaining, who the hell else is there? Who is there out there to buy that is a leader? I have watched hundreds of hours of football over the last season or two and can count on the fingers of one hand the number of genuine leaders I saw on the pitch.}



01 Sep 2017 10:57:24
Positives reds

AOC will add more pace to the side. I think he'll flourish under Klopp and he's with his mates, Hendo, Studge and Lallana. Expect him to be bang up for it.

Keita signed for next summer. What a player he looks like turning out to be.

Origi Wolfsburg loan for £6 million. That's great business plus they pay all his wages.

Salah speaks for himself

Solanke looks good.

TAA and Gomez have all the makings of great wing backs.

Morenos second coming. Such a hard worker.

Robertson looks good. Really fitting in at left back. Good challenge for him and Moreno

Coutinho staying. He's a great player. He needs to get his head down and work.

They only negative would be no one signed at CB. However Gomez could be the answer there until we can reinforce in Jan perhaps.

1.) 01 Sep 2017 11:48:00
VvD hasn't played since Jan. He hasn't had a pre season. If we had signed him he probably would need 2 months to get up to speed. If we can get him in January I don't think it would disadvantage us too much.



31 Aug 2017 20:05:02
I guess it's been manic. Macca clearly staying away as he had no news to give and I don't blame him as the A holes will be out calling him into question. I know there's a few hours left but it's not been too bad. Could have been a lot worse. I think Coutinho staying might be a bad idea though unless he can be reintegrated into the squad. Either that or take the money now and reinvest in Jan when we might need quality. Interested to hear Ed01's thoughts. I know Ed02 doesn't like us and has made his feelings very clear. Ha ha.
Me for one I'll be glad it's all over.
Also Origi was a great bit of business you Edwards and Co. just a shame we couldn't close Lemar. Yet.! We live in hope.

1.) 31 Aug 2017 20:20:34
He called Naby Keita and said we hadn't stopped negotiating. So Macca's rep is top notch as always.



30 Aug 2017 21:19:58
Getting pure evils off the missus as I'm checking the site every 30 mins whilst on holiday. definitely reckon she thinks I've got another bird on the go. If we sign Lemar and VVD I'll buy her an ice cream.

{Ed025's Note - it looks like mr whippy can take the night off at the moment jimble..

1.) 30 Aug 2017 21:50:47
Excellent news.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 22:13:38
Ed025 Ok you're a bitter blue, that's a given, but you do post the occasional excellent ripostes.

In fairness to Macca some great info there BUT things haven't changed, it's still the same on all fronts. It's just some more clarification. I reckon he's bang on the money with respect to the club waiting to see if we qualify fully for group stages of the CL. It makes sense. FSG are responsible owners and although they might not tip up as much money as people would like, there's no point in adding huge wages and transfer fees to the tab if we aren't going to get the revenue the CL would provide. It's good business sense.

Apparently he suffers from chilblains in cold weather which could make a deal unlikely. Believe it or not. Haven't seen much on him apart from you tube nonesense. He looks ok. Is he an upgrade on what we have? We need a Matic type player really. He was imperious against West Ham the other day. Chelsea may regret that departure.

I said surround him with better players Ed025 😂
Think he could be the making of the blues mate.

{Ed025's Note - hes someone we are desperate for jimble we are very predictable at the moment and everything seems to go through rooney, he is a quality player and scores as well mate..

Everyone keeps saying " when fit when fit". He's clearly not fit so why continue to play him. Give him some time on the bench. Get him fit off the park. I like his attitude and he's a grafter no doubt but he's not and never will be a captain for me. Too negative in his play and doesn't do the necessary dirty deeds needed of a captain. Klopp needs to drop him and have a reshuffle. Give Can the armband for a bit. See if he rises to it.

No leaders anywhere on the park. Taking Couts off so early gave them hope. Poor game management today. No respect for Leicester. Poor defence. Average midfield.

January is new window so Southampton would not be able to accuse Liverpool of tapping up. So long as Liverpool act properly this time. But it's still up to them to sell to us. And one of the reason we couldn't come in for him last minute in the summer is that no one else bid for him. Chelsea and City knew of our interest and know the player wants Liverpool so they'd be handing us a huge advantage by opening the bidding up again. Simples. He'll be a red come January I'm 100% confident.

FSG have backed Klopp on every target. Is it their fault Klopp tapped up VVD. If he hadn't he'd be our player ages ago and also some clubs don't want to deal. Monaco lost a lot of good players this window.
We've secured some good signings. our fullbacks have blossomed. It's only the CB's there's a problem and some coaching will sort that out. People need to chill out.
