Ed002 I have seen a few reports flying around tonight (yes notably twitter) about Leon goretzka close to agreeing a pre contract with lfc for next season can you confirm or deny this for me? Or could you give us an update as who looks most likely destination for him?
Many thanks.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - It would be illegal. If Liverpool have spoken with the player and are about to sign an agreement it will mean a complaint to FIFA by Schalke. Plus some on here told me he had signed weeks ago?}


1.) 29 Dec 2017 08:25:00
But surely Ed002 this must go on through third parties not affiliated to either clubs. I mean even with other clubs and players not just Liverpool etc. I understand the “legal” process how players are approached but I can’t believe for a second that every deal is done legitimately in its infancy. There’s too much money and greed involved these days for that to be the case. I understand Klopps illegal approach to VVD but surely they just caught with their hands in the cookie jar and this kind of thing happens all the time under the radar.

{Ed002's Note - Of course other clubs have acted illegally over the years - but as you know Liverpool are still bottom of the pile in terms of professionalism and acting illegally as has been explained over and over. They are serving a ban and still have a complaint on file with the premier league. 18 months ago two clubs wrote to Liverpoolo (one copying in their own FA and the other their own FA and FIFA) warning Liverpool about illegal approaches for players. The owners have had to twice trail slime to apolgise to Premier League clubs to avoid charges. Let it go and move on.}


2.) 29 Dec 2017 14:02:19
We're bottom of the pile in professionalism yet other elite clubs have no problem dealing with us. Please can you tell me who else has had these complaints over illegal approaches because it happens a lot of clubs but you don't talk about that as you only want to bash Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - There are two on going investigations regarding illegal approaches with FIFA at present. In the UK, Liverpool are serving a ban already as you know and have a further complaint sitting on file. They avoided an illegal case regarding a child by throwing money at it to make it go away as well. Manchester City escaped any punishment and were found not be guilt of any wrongdoing in the matter of Garré - although they have also been unprofessional in the past and have been castigated by me. The last case in England in respect of an illegal approach (for Nottingham Forest's Jamaal Lascelles) resulted in a £45K fine as previously the club had behaved well. At the time I castigated them as I would any other club. So it does get discussed on other clubs pages but cretins like you just continue to whine and demonstrate your total lack of knowledge of the game.}


3.) 29 Dec 2017 15:34:25
I can't argue with that. Cheers for the detailed reply. I never knew about Lascelles.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Everton learned their lesson. Sorry for being so abrupt.}

Links tonight with renato sanches and Thomas lemar (I believe ed002 has since dismissed these or hasn't heard anything to confirm it we have) I haven't seen much of these 2 but both seem interesting, sanches was tipped for stardom but a move to early for him has stagnated his career (think markovic to us) seems to have put him back a bit but if a few wasn't astronomical it might be worth looking into it but I'm a but sceptical about it. If I read correctly bayern only want a loan so this might scupper that deal if indeed we are interested. Now lemar again some one I ain't seen much of but I believe he a lw or lf now manè and salah are the boys up top but I genuinely believe if one needs a rest or gets injured/ suspended then I worry so I would like to see a very capable alternative with hopefully the mass amount of games we will be playing. What ever happens I can't thank the eds enough for what has truly been a chaotic window and I wish them all the best because I think this next 4 days us going to loads of activity between clubs.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - I haven't dismissed either - I explained a caveat emptor. Lemar I have explained the I don't know having left Monaco early Friday.}


1.) 27 Aug 2017 23:37:46
The report states that this is not a new inquiry but was made earlier in the summer.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 23:51:16
Sorry ed002 yeah I have re-read what you said and I think you just said you wasn't aware of any approaches we have made. Can I ask are bayern looking to sell sanches or a loan only?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that a loan will require guarantees and a sale would require a financial risk.}


3.) 28 Aug 2017 01:09:43
I think in salah, mane, coutinio and lallana we have enough players to fill the wide positions. I could only see us going for lemar if pc goes. I like sanchez a lot. I think he would be brilliant for liverpool. My concern with bringing him in is Emre Can and the unsigned contract. The eds have already said Can is concerned about playing time and this has been the main issue with his new contract. I was a little worried with Can's post match interview after hoffenhiem as he seemed a touch negative about performance. If we sign more dynamic midfielders it could put Can off and I'm not alone in thinking the kid has a huge future. I hope it's at Liverpool, I really do.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 07:03:25
Coutinho is going early this week. There is silly money on offer and he wants to go.
We can cope without him easier than we can without mane too!
Champions league will be a big bdraw now too.


5.) 28 Aug 2017 09:44:12
Ed2 can u try and find out regarding lemar? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Someone will be here late today who may no, but the suggestion in France appears to be that Liverpool have offered their original asking price (although part of it as an add on) although they seemingly have not spoken with Monaco as of yet - which strikes me as particularly strange. Monaco have so far resisted offers and are busy dealing with the sale of Mbappe right now - so I cannot say more at this time. The player is due at Clairefontaine today.}


6.) 28 Aug 2017 10:17:57
I think a new winger may come, I agree that we may be short there for playing the same style - if one is rested injured etc.
But spending that money on someone who is very hard pushed to be starting - would have to settle excellently, unless he can play ten?


7.) 28 Aug 2017 10:45:24
Thing about Lemar is that he can play on the wing, as a number ten or on the left of a midfield three and even left back. So he would be a great signing if we lose Coutinho.


8.) 28 Aug 2017 10:24:02
Thanks eds.


 

 

27 Aug 2017 15:01:12
Confirmed karius in goal and ward on bench. One other change aswel gomez in for TAA.

Paul Joyce
Lfc formally reject transfer request and insist he going nowhere.
Suppose we will See, money talks I reckon and a deal will get done.

kjmainstreet

1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:13:53
Hes changed his tune.


2.) 11 Aug 2017 14:21:15
This will drag and drag and drag. Plus if he does want to leave that will effect him till the window closes.
It will then take time to settle again and perform then it will all kick off again in Jan.

I'd pack him off 100 mill and take maybe rakitic on loan with option to buy, don't know enough about the others.
Cough up for vvd and kieta, take a shot at luan and/ or ox.

This is IF he pushes or hands in request. Shake the lads hand and wish him luck at Barca.


3.) 11 Aug 2017 14:33:39
We don't have to sell, we are in a good position.

This has been going on for a year, he should have put in the transfer request months ago.

He needs to have a good season with the World Cup coming up.


4.) 11 Aug 2017 14:35:37
Thank god you're not the manager, raktic is past it and 100 million isn't all that much in today's market.


5.) 11 Aug 2017 14:37:09
Eds, may I ask what you would do in this situation as owner/ manager? Lose one of your stand out players and try and replace them with 2 weeks to go? OR keep him but maybe have a less then enthusiastic player who may cause a bit of division in the team?

{Ed002's Note - The club knew this was likely and it is never a good idea to keep a player who wants to be elsewhere. So sell.}


6.) 11 Aug 2017 14:52:42
Ed002 normally I would agree with your comment about selling if they want out but considering that we have just short of 3 weeks to find a replacement (in a tough market) I just would sell. Plus its a World Cup year so I highly doubt he will go on strike, its too late in the day. I understand him wanting Barcelona and if it was June I would say sell. Players drive me mad! be it VVD or Courts they just signed long term contracts and enjoy the pay rise but throw their toys out when clubs ask them to respect their deals.

{Ed002's Note - I think Liverpool has had a long time to line up a replacement. They have had the red flag waving for more than a year Madchild.}


7.) 11 Aug 2017 14:52:50
Listen I'm hoping it's not true and he stays and more importantly wants to stay.

But I'm not convinced he does and don't blame him really, it's Barca.

Till the window is closed he can and probably will push for a move this will have a negative effect on him and the squad. Force him to stay but don't expect the same player as his heads going to be all over the place, if his family wants to leave his missus will give him down the banks and those of who are married will understand that, that will just increase pressure and mess his head right up.

It would take him a little while to accept he's staying and settle again IF he does at all. I'd rather just get it over with and move quickly in the market.

Rakatic on loan provides a no risk gamble, I don't know anything about the others on offer. It's not a popular choice but we face a massive season and if rather fully committed players who are focused and ready for the challenge than having to deal with an issue such as above.


8.) 11 Aug 2017 14:53:01
Ed 002.it's too close to end of window to allow Coutinho to leave. There are no alternatives. You said so yourself. RBL won't sell Keita.

{Ed002's Note - Macca says that Nobby Keita is back on - and I have listed alternatives. It gets a mention in the Sharkopod I did this morning.}


9.) 11 Aug 2017 14:53:09
Coutinho will still be enthusiastic as ever even if transfer request is denied, as he will want to be part of the brazil world cup squad and couldn't afford to sulk. It shouldn't of got to the stage where he has had to hand in a TR. Once he informed the club of his wish to leave they should of thanked him for contributions to the club and set the price.


10.) 11 Aug 2017 14:54:27
Yep, I think sell is the only option now. In fairness to Coutinho his dream has always been to play for Barcelona and, whilst at our club, he has conducted himself in an exemplary manner. Barcelona should pay through the nose for him, but I don't think we should stand in his way. It is a hammer blow, and it seriously dents any prospect we had of a title challenge, but these things happen and have been happening to us on a cyclical basis - hopefully, as the club knew this was going to happen sooner or later, we have some sort of well thought out replacement in mind.


11.) 11 Aug 2017 14:59:40
We're into 'how much' territory. He's gone.


12.) 11 Aug 2017 14:59:41
Hi Ed002, to add to your answer to Dean's question, what is the minimum fee you would accept? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I would rather not talk about money but if Liverpool could het £100M they should be very satisfied.}


13.) 11 Aug 2017 15:05:15
Earlier in the window I said let him go, however it's too late in the day for that now, and pipco should blame Barcelona for that. It's world cup year which always strengthens a clubs hand. Keep him, watch him star in the World Cup and get more for him. Sad state of affairs all round though.


14.) 11 Aug 2017 15:49:25
Very good point lfc hopeful. His price will rocket after world cup. Sell him next year as if he performs better than neymar in world cup people will be saying pipco is worth 200 mil too.


15.) 11 Aug 2017 15:50:28
If he wants to go then let him go. Apparently Klopp has said if he goes, then he goes. So if the manager is philosophical about so should we be.

Couts is a great player but I don't think he's a Suarez, who was pretty much irreplaceable. Best he go on good terms, and we not be hypocritical as fans.

Maybe we are playing the same game as RBL. It will have forced us to up our bid, and the tac may well force Barca's hand as well. It's the commercial nature of the game.

If we sign Keita, fine. If we don't, also fine. Hopefully Sturridge, Solanke, Original (& Ings, if he's not going on loan) will come good for goals, and Firmino can play a good 10 role. Mané and Salah look formidable. Lallana showed his quality last season, hopefully he will come back fighting fit.

We've not got the money of the likes of City, but I think we've made a good case we don't necessarily need it, in so much as we did well against the other top teams last season.

I look forward to this coming season. I'm not going to say "this is our year" but I think we have a lot to be positive about.

I'd like to see VVD in, as we know we have need in that area, but on other fronts I think we are mostly okay.


16.) 11 Aug 2017 15:34:05
I don't think keita will happen.


17.) 11 Aug 2017 15:25:29
The problem is Ed002 how much time do LFC need to sign a replacement? Macca says Naby Keita is back on (makes a worthy replacement for Coutinho imo) though many remain sceptical he will join LFC this summer. Sell Coutinho m=now for big money to Barcelona and FSG have their pants pulled down by Leipzig or any other club LFC go to looking for a replacement.
It seems there is no way back now for Coutinho and FSG should go to Leipzig and pay what they want for Keita (which will be a ridiculous amount) .

{Ed002's Note - I don't see NK as a PC replacement. A Max Meyer, a Diego Laxalt perhaps.}


18.) 11 Aug 2017 16:09:22
Ed002 I completely get where you are coming from and they have probably known for at least a year that he would want to go to Barcelona and he knew there was an interest why did he sign a new 5 year contract? Would it not have been easier for him to refuse the contract and be in a better position now to push the Barcelona move?

This is what I mean by players taking the money until it doesn't suit them. I wouldn't sell just cause its too late in the day for my mind as every other player we go for once we have that type of money will double in value over night.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps but I would see the contract signed some months ago as being of any great relevance.}


19.) 11 Aug 2017 18:42:27
Good post robboz. It's not the end of the world is it? We have lots of great players. My concern is a lack of added quality coming in and our best player going. BUT.

I think salah will get more goals than pipco got last term.


20.) 11 Aug 2017 20:10:30
A few years off and last time i think we looked at him, decided to stay in Croatia to develop some more, which i liked. Coric i think has such huge potential in him. being brutally honest if we did sell PC, Firmino can drop deeper if we have a fit striker. Solanke has looked okay, so between mane, salah, RF and solanke might do alright!


21.) 11 Aug 2017 21:16:32
This is now a stare down btw Cou and the owners and trust me, this will not end well for him. He is dealing with American owners and trust me, they do not play games esp. if one of their players is trying to force their hand. To them, he who writes the checks, makes the rules. Hence, Cou's team was stupid to put in that TR and this will only strengthen the owners's stance and they will not sell and Cou will to them, simply get over iot. Suarez did way worse than this to get a move to Arsenal of all places and JWH crushed that crap and LS got over it. Cou will have to cos the owners won't budge.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 13:48:04
Ed002,
If all been reported is true and coutinho has indeed or does hand in tr and liverpool sell him do you think it looks weak on fsg behalf? I understand coutinho wanting the Barcelona move and I understand that maybe they pressuring him and his agent to get it done now but. jus look at what has happened to us so far this window, Keita wanted the move to us, red bull standing firm so far hasn't happened. Vvd desperate for us and has even handed in a tr request. Saints standing firm and hasn't happened as of yet. It goes to show that players have massive player power but these show that players can be kept against there own will. If they sell now surely questions would be asked "why didn't liverpool stand firm?

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - Not at all. It is business as usual, players are transient and they come and go. And remember FSG are the owners - anything the do or endorse is only at the behest of someone at the club - and it is the club that takes decisions on players. Macca has said Nobby Keita is back on but as I have said I am not aware of any further interest right now - again we will see. van Dyke I think may well of been dealt with.}


1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:14:13
Forgive me Ed2 when you say VVD may have been dealt with is he staying at Southampton or moving elsewhere.

{Ed002's Note - No I mean we have already mentioned him in a previous post.}


2.) 11 Aug 2017 14:08:20
Sorry ed can I just confirm your stance on vvd being dealt with that he not for sale and will stay at Saints? So much on here about the vvd situation it's near on impossible to see and recent updates.

{Ed002's Note - It has been covered already - to some great depth.}


3.) 11 Aug 2017 16:07:13
Cheers Ed2.

By the looks of it lfc transfer window is done. I for one would giv us a solid A. Needed a keeper, strengthen midfield and a back up option for one if the 3 lads up top so all good in my opinion. Fekir looked like might have happened but things don't always work out so good luck to him weather he stays at Lyon or moves onto another club. My only reason for not giving us and A+ at the min is regarding the outs. In my opinion ings, origi, markovic, and either mignolet or karius should have been moved on. Hopefully we haven't prices them out of a move they all need.

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has indeed priced players out of a move again.}


1.) 09 Aug 2018 15:58:29
Hi Ed, this isn't the first time you've said that or I thought it.

Do you know what the thinking is behind this approach?
I would have thought it isn't business sense to set unrealistic prices for a depreciating asset.

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have done it before as you suggest.}


2.) 09 Aug 2018 15:58:45
I don’t want to stop a mans career of course but slightly selfishly if Ings does stay it gives us a better squad. I think he’s a natural goal scorer and fits Klopps style of play more than our other strikers and would be a great back up to Bobby.

I know we have Studge but we can’t rely on his injuries. I know Ings has been unlucky also but very unlucky if all three injured at same time. We have Solanke but let’s be frank here we are aiming for top spot from city and they have Ken and Jesus as options.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 16:07:31
All of these players can still be sold to European clubs up until the end of August.


4.) 09 Aug 2018 16:08:27
I hope Ings would be allowed to leave today - for a reasonably fair amount. Would be a big blow to him otherwise.


5.) 09 Aug 2018 16:08:30
I know the market is really crazy at the min and we ovcourse want the best prices available for our players but surely comon sense prevails and we negotiate on a price. I. e. if believed the amount wanted for ings is 20m but other club offer 10m then a common ground of say 15m would make sense. I don't get all the fundematals of the money but that's hat it seems like to me.


6.) 09 Aug 2018 16:26:16
As much as Studge has had a solid pre-season, I think we all know what to expect with him with injuries at this point. If we can't get what we want for Ings then I think keeping him is a good thing. Prefer him over Origi and Solanke and it's a toss-up between him and studge.


7.) 09 Aug 2018 16:28:40
Have to agree with Ed002 here. The club has tried to screw around with selling of players again. So much for M. Edwards being a messiah.
We could have sold Ings by putting more realistic price tags on Ings, Ojo and Origi at least. Clearly that bit us in the a*** badly and we are stuck with 3 players who will barely get a game now. Migs will be loaned out and sold for a pittance next summer, same for Markovic. Danny Ward was our only significant outgoing, which is extremely poor for a club like LFC which was looking to raise money be selling at least 6-7 players.


8.) 09 Aug 2018 16:30:50
I feel for Ings if he doesn’t get a move after a horrific couple of years injury wise he deserves the chance to go a play regularly somewhere.


9.) 09 Aug 2018 17:02:11
Same can be said about Lyon and Fekir - priced out of a move.


10.) 09 Aug 2018 16:55:18
Aren't you 'there's a price pay it' kinda guy?

We named our price, the club's should of met it or they don't get the player.

Teams do it to us and we do it back :)

{Ed002's Note - Yes it seems the club is as stupid as some of the fans.}


11.) 09 Aug 2018 17:10:31
Some people just like to complain! We don’t sign enough players, complain. We don’t sign the right players, complain. We don’t sell enough players, complain. People expect us to pay the asking price for players we want but also take whatever is on offer for our own players. Michael Edwards and the club have done great work over the last couple of seasons, this summer is no different. The European transfer window doesn’t close for another 3 weeks, not does the Championship loan window.


12.) 09 Aug 2018 17:11:01
Are Liverpool doing any different to any other selling club? Did Lyon price Fekir out of a move? Nobody signed him! Prices are crazy these days, who can argue what the right price is for a player.


13.) 09 Aug 2018 17:20:09
I think Origi, Markovic and Mignolet can still find new homes (sale or loan) before the end of the month, somewhere in Europe. I hope that's what the club is thinking. Having Ings and Ojo around is not such a bad thing for the club, but definitely not so good for the players. If all 5 end up staying, however, it will end up being a fiasco of sorts. They are all beyond spending a season with the U23's, and it obviously will do no good for either the club or their careers.


14.) 09 Aug 2018 17:20:46
I think 20mil for Ings is more than fair. Where would we be able to buy a player who scored 20 0dd goals in his last full season in a competitive league for less than 40mil.

15mil for Ings is an insult. The guy is a goal machine. Maybe we want to keep him and will in fact sell Solanke to rangers, or loan him (I hope) meaning brewster steps up a place and Ings becomes a real option off the bench.

I love Sturridge but he will get injured pretty soon, we all know it. We would be in real trouble without a proven goal scorer.

In fact I see our cf as a bit of a problem. We are hoping to challenge for the league. But if Bobby gets injured who steps in? Sturridge hopefully but when he is injured. I really like Solanke but can he get us the league title? We don't have a class cf to come in if Bobby and Sturridge get injured.

I actually think Ings could step in and get us there. I know some of the Eds don't rate Ings that highly but this is what happens when a player has been out for so long. Adam lallana was criticised last season but he was injured. Before the injury he was probably the best am in the league or top 3 anyway. We even forgot how good a fully fit Sturridge was. We have never seen Ings. He has scored on his brief cameo role and also created a few good chances.

I agree with another poster who said they selfishly hope Ings will stay. Bobby has been very lucky with injuries, he is strong. But even strong players get hurt. Especially coming off the back of a 20 odd goal season. He will get the treatment from opposition cbs now, more so than before. My point, all players get injured and bobby is over due one. God I hope it doesn't happen but of it does, do liverpool have the player who can step in and get us the league?

In a perfect world I would like to sell Ings and Origi and bring in a goal scorer. But that looks decidedly unlikely.


15.) 09 Aug 2018 18:08:23
If Firmino gets injured Salah would play up front with the cube at right wing.


 

 

09 Aug 2018 10:56:23
I know it's the liverpool page but any chance of a kepa review ed001? If at all possible could ed002 give us an opinion of kepa? I believe real Madrid showed a lot of interest quite recently but decided against paying his then fee which was a lot lower than what Chelsea have paid, is this because they thought he wasn't worth it or another reason behind it? I haven't seen kepa play much so can't say if the £71m is too much but seems a lot for a keeper with 1 international cap and no European football experience.

kjmainstreet

{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the player profile list mate.}


1.) 09 Aug 2018 11:50:04
I think he got injured just as Real were about to buy him then he signed an improved contract when it fell through. If I’m not mistaken Real wanted him as a back up to whoever they were going to sign as first choice (Courtois now) so I guess things have worked out for the best for Kepa.

Alison fever here today (I love it) ed002 you obviously have a vast amount of knowledge in the football world regarding financial and the other side of things that us mere mortal fans don't pay much attention to but do you watch much football as a fan? (I believe you are a Chelsea fan, but forgive me if I'm wrong) I ask this as I don't want to get into the financial side if things but having only seen Alison at anfield this season, 2 games in the Seria and the world cup I can't really say how much of a good keeper he is. a lot of talk saying he a quality keeper but can I ask what you think of him? I seen a lot of prem keepers and the la liga ones. I personally think after de gea (best keeper in world for me) then Courtois and oblak are the next best, would you put Alison in the same bracket as them 2?
Cheers for the time you took I reading this and posting on this site.
Kj.

{Ed002's Note - I think given there is only one year that could be considered then that is perhaps not enough to say if he is one of the top 4 or 5 goalkeepers in the world - ahead of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Hugo Lloris, Handanovic, Manuel Neuer, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Gianluigi Buffon etc., etc..}

Chelsea are one of a few teams that Ed002 vaguely follows or has a passing interest in, is it fair to say your more a fan of the sport in general Ed? A football renaissance man?

{Ed002's Note - You might want to look up my definition of "fan". I should say that I don't worry about results, league positions etc., and I have never owned a club football shirt or thrown beer or done anything involving a clenched fist or shouting.}

Cheers for your response ed002, I understand 1 year ain't enough to go on. Hopefully (for lfc fans sake atleast) he will be.

Ed002, I don’t get the throwing beer nonsense. What’s that even about?


4.) 18 Jul 2018 19:12:37
Absolute waste of beer!
I saw a video of england fans throwing Bert and a guy at the front didn’t, but was getting knocked everywhere and spilling it. i’d be turning round swinging at people if they made me waste a beer! The cues would be massive to get another one and it’s expensive from a bar! XD.

Is it jus me or do people think the Shaqiri deal mirrors the Balotelli one? Both hav had issues at previous clubs, check. Both hav talent but lack the mentality to produce it on a regular basis, check. Both (in terms of transfer fee) seem pretty low risk, check. Both don't like to put a shift in for the team, check. Both failed at lfc? Suppose we will find out in coming months.

Some similarities but if Shaqiri doesn’t perform in training then he won’t make the squad full stop. and if he performs in training, then gets a chance in the team and again doesn’t put in the necessary effort then he will be benched quick time.


2.) 11 Jul 2018 11:13:43
We will see I guess. I do think Shaqiri has shown more than MB ever really did in the premier league. I think he’s not the worst option from the bench (ability wise)

I don't know what to make of the Shaqiri deal, he seems a lazy got with a big ego who doesn't seem to want to do the dirtier side if a game. Basically everything klopp doesn't like in a player. So seems strange deal if you ask me. He is talented when he wants so maybe klopp likes a challenge of tapping into that and thinks 13m seems like a low risk? I think Brendan Rodgers can testify that a leopard doesn't change it's spots (balotelli) and would maybe go back in time and go for a player more suited to his style management instead of trying to tap into his talent.

Sorry ed002 yeah I have re-read what you said and I think you just said you wasn't aware of any approaches we have made. Can I ask are bayern looking to sell sanches or a loan only?

kjmainstreet

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that a loan will require guarantees and a sale would require a financial risk.}

Sorry ed can I just confirm your stance on vvd being dealt with that he not for sale and will stay at Saints? So much on here about the vvd situation it's near on impossible to see and recent updates.

Sorry ed002, I didn't wanna cause any inconvenience as I said I ain't got a clue how it works. Was just a little curios how the underbelly of footy transfers work.

I know the market is really crazy at the min and we ovcourse want the best prices available for our players but surely comon sense prevails and we negotiate on a price. I. e. if believed the amount wanted for ings is 20m but other club offer 10m then a common ground of say 15m would make sense. I don't get all the fundematals of the money but that's hat it seems like to me.

What makes you think this will be the case tho? I've seen no evidence and it's not like he is signing for his first major European club. He has played for bayern Munich and inter Milan. I will support him when he signs but let's not try kid ourselves here it seems likely it will end badly.

Morientes and kewell are amazing shouts, ryan Babel was another one for me, had great potential and an air if excitement when he signed but never fulfilled his wonderkid rap. Gary McAllister for his one season of wonder needs to be up there for most overwhelming players. I honestly thought houllier had gone mad when he brought him in.

I have to agree with mk here, his post was a simple I hope lfc don't drag negotiations on with Lyon for fekir. I have 100% read on this website that Lyon are notorious hard to deal with when English clubs ask about players, it should be a simple case of contacting Lyon asking if fekir is available if so ask a price then agree to pay or not to pay and move on. If agree to pay simply set up the payment amounts and add-ons whatever else goes into transfer and discuss contact with player. If not then don't keep throwing low ball offers at them or tapping up the player and move on.
