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.


{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.




11 Aug 2017 14:02:32
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.


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'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
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?


{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.



26 Jul 2017 00:18:10
Ed002, can I ask if Neymar transfer is at all related to Barcelona approach for coutinho? I don't want to get into money side of things but if I remember correctly I read on here some time ago that giving Messi a new contract would financially be very expensive to them and id they didn't sell Neymar would they be able to complete let's say a €100m transfer for coutinho aswel as what they have already spent? (I think they recently purchased semedo from benfica and I'm not sure if they have bought anyone else)


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with it - Barcelona want an Iniesta replacement and Coutinho is second choice and has been for a long time - and they cannot get their first pick. They do need to move players on and will be doing that.}

1.) 26 Jul 2017 00:34:39
Cheers for quick response ed, troubling times ahead for lfc fans me thinks. Appreciate all the work you do on these sites.

{Ed002's Note - Business as usual.}

2.) 26 Jul 2017 01:42:07
Not troubling to me, football is a business we'd do well as fans to support the club not the individual, the same way we want players that other fans do not want to leave, why are we so different, especially when they want to leave, i say thank you for the memories coutinho, if you do go and if that happens ill still be singing #YNWA no player is bigger than lfc lads.

3.) 26 Jul 2017 07:51:18
I think if Barcelona sign Coutinho then Neymar will stay. Neymar has Barcelona over a barrel as they know Neymar is their future on and off the pitch. Coutinho's head has been turned, and I believe it's all about trying to get as high a fee as possible for him and utilising that money correctly to bring in a replacement and strengthen other areas. I really hope none of this comes to fruition.

4.) 26 Jul 2017 08:18:41
Dybala and Verratti. I believe Barcelona have wanted.

5.) 26 Jul 2017 09:05:29
I am In agreement; with the silly money being thrown around at the moment liverpool should be looking for a world record fee for Coutinho so take Mbappe as a guide €160m and Barcelona are offering less than half that? They have to make him the most expensive player in the world or he doesn't move this season simple as. Klopp doesn't strike me as the same type of guy as BR and won't be bullied.

6.) 26 Jul 2017 08:05:57
Ed002, who's a first choice?

{Ed002's Note - Verratti.}

7.) 26 Jul 2017 10:04:16
As well as Ousmane Dembele of BVB. Don't care what Barcelona and their mouthpieces in the Spanish media say, Couts must not be sold this summer regardless of the offer.

8.) 26 Jul 2017 10:37:36
If the money is right they will sell its called business.

{Ed025's Note - its called "shooting yourself in the foot" for me FJ..

9.) 26 Jul 2017 11:21:27
There is no point buying a world class player to replace a world class player. That's called standing still and not progressing.

10.) 26 Jul 2017 12:59:44
Lovely post mane. s.

11.) 26 Jul 2017 16:06:41
Fowlerjock, it is actually in our case, shooting yourself in both feet.

12.) 26 Jul 2017 17:20:30
Selling your most productive assets isn't good business unless you can replace them with just as productive assets for less money.

Given agents fees, relocation costs, sign on bonuses, new wages, time it takes for new players to settle and an overinflated market right now I don't see us replacing Coutinho without it actually costing us. probably even at 100m.

13.) 26 Jul 2017 20:33:05
I'm afraid if coutinho wants to leave, we need to get the best price and get rid. Whilst a great player he flits in and out of games. He obviously stands out in our team, but it's not the end of the world. Salah looks like a great replacement. Just saying.

14.) 27 Jul 2017 10:50:15
if he wants to leave he should not have signed that contract, end of discusion, also if he wants to leave he hands in a transfer request, he will not get 5% for wanting to leave, that's a bunch of clown jokes.

15.) 27 Jul 2017 11:05:29
It called buisness?

NO its NOT, this god damn FOOTBALL and we are sick of mediocrity!

16.) 27 Jul 2017 13:13:04
Liverpool wanted him to sign that contract so we could get the best price. Barcelona had already been making noises, that's why he was given the contract. Loyal players are few and far between, he's Brazilian who has played in Brazil, Italy and England. Why wouldn't he move to Spain? With the kind of money involved, it is business. That's modern football.

Just a little update regarding my extra ticket for tomorrow's match if you can comment on this then we can wrk something out. Unfortunately you will be sitting next to me and I'm sure people can appreciate I don't want to put personal mobile number on here and things so will ask one of the eds to pass on my details if anyone interested.


{Ed001's Note - sitting next to you? Ah that just killed off the interest stone dead then! ;-)

1.) 13 Oct 2017 16:21:24
Haha, yeah must explain the distinct lack of interest. I've been visiting this site for years and think it far better to give a proper red a ticket rather than selling on to highest bidder. I've been had like that many of times in the past and jus think makes more sense. I've got to get some one asap tho as I'm going to change the name through the club for the ticket aswel so they don't think I'm jus selling on to highest bidder.

{Ed001's Note - I would have thought you would have people queueing round the block for a ticket to see us against Man Utd!}

2.) 13 Oct 2017 16:35:19
Most of my friends are blues my lad (who usually goes with me is up in Newcastle to see family) the other person who I would go with my brother is out for his daughter's b-day. As I said I've seen people selling em on fb for over £100 a ticket and I'm not willing to do that unfortunately would rather give it to someone who wants to get to a game but due to prices or near impossible to get a tickets then they get to go.

{Ed001's Note - someone has just asked so there you go.}

3.) 13 Oct 2017 16:36:36
I will have it if still available mate.

4.) 13 Oct 2017 16:58:13
I will send my details in a bit or if you can send me yours I can get I touch when I'm in. I've got a family friend askin aswel so let you know asap. Are you from lpool area and know area btw?

{Ed025's Note - no problem kj pleased to help mate, have a great time guys..



13 Oct 2017 09:55:35
Not sure if the the eds would allow this but I'll post anyways. Me and my lad are regular goers to lfc home games and he has gone to Newcastle to visit family so isn't around this weekend so have a extra ticket in the 'local sale' in the new main stand if interested I can provide eds with my details and go from there.




09 Sep 2017 17:23:22
The hysteria on here sometimes is laughable! We got smashed 5-0 the score line shows that, for the 36 mins prior to that we was well in that game. I'm not saying if manè wasn't sent off we would have won that game but I think I can say with confidence that it wouldn't have been 5-0?
Now let's get to the nitty gritty of it some players can never win I looked at them goals today and I can't say mignolet was glaringly to blame for Any, yet if you read a lot of the posts on here he getting slaughtered! Joke the lot of it. He wasn't at fault today and people blaming him jus got a vendetta against him. I'm not saying he is the greatest keeper but blaming him today is laughable. TAA has huge potential but today will be a massive learning curve for him. Positionaly was caught out a few times and looked flustered from the off today. Will come strong again tho no doubt.
Moreno-i can't criticise too much today we all know he vulnerable defensively but I think he trying to work on his game and think he did ok today.
Cb pairing of matip and klavan DO NOT WORK. Matip seems like he has lapses of concentration and klavan us jus.


{Ed002's Note - I am glad we got to the nitty gritty. At least the boys gave it 110%.}

1.) 09 Sep 2017 17:35:23
Hahaha, my phone sent it before I finished my essay! Was a long winded one but none the less was probably all bs.

{Ed002's Note - You must be banging your head against a brick wall KJ.}

2.) 09 Sep 2017 17:36:12
I think at 1 nil down and a man down, we should have sat deep and subbed firmino for solanke as a target man to try and nick a goal. lesson learnt again i suppose.

{Ed002's Note - It was ceratinly a wake-up call.}



03 Sep 2017 18:27:36
Can any of the eds shed some light on the emre can situation? If we being honest it looks like he won't be signing a new contract and u would imagine a pre-contract agreement agreed in jan (if not verbialy agreed now) can I ask what age can signed for lfc and if he was to leave on a free transfer would lfc be entitled to any compensation at all or us that for academy only players? Many thanks.


{Ed001's Note - he looks set to leave on a free. He was 20 when he signed but I don't believe we are entitled to any compensation.}

1.) 03 Sep 2017 18:55:32
I believe Emre would have to have spent some time in our youth system for us to receive any compensation. As he did not, Emre leaves on a free and can sign a pre-contract in January.

2.) 03 Sep 2017 19:32:56
Cheers ed001, I thought that was the case regarding compensation. He seems like a lad that just wants to play and if he playing well then get paid what is right. I just think with all the talk of midfielders arriving and with coutinho dropping to cm and Keita arriving in summer I think he thinks he will be a stop gap if he signs now and will be left stuck in contract with ourselves and maybe fighting a loosing battle to get into our regular starting 11. I will be gutted to see him leave on a free but I think it's inevitable now.

{Ed001's Note - exactly what he is thinking.}

Does he not have confidence in himself enough to see himself partnering Keita ahead of Hendo next year? i like Hendo, top man but Can is imoroving all the time and if he keeps getting better i'd fancy him to surpass Hendo. Does Emre honestly think he's not going to have competition at Juve? some top midfielders there.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 21:07:39
I'd take can over Henderson any day of the week, I appreciate what he does but I don't see him like some untouchable figure that some on here do.

5.) 03 Sep 2017 22:31:08
Can over Henderson any day of the week! But don't happen as Hendo is the baby face and captain!

6.) 03 Sep 2017 22:41:17
Just such a shame if he leaves, from my name its obvious im a fan. Since he joined i thought he'd be a top player and he seems to be on the verge of that now. He's played at least 40 times a season, over 130 games at 23 years of age. With Keita coming in we could, along with Can and Couts (or his replacement), have one of the best midfields in Europe.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 01:38:23
You can't knock him for effort while all this contract talk is going on.

It would have been easy for Can to have signed a 5 year contract, on huge money, only to try and manipulate a move 6 months later by feigning injury and bursting out crying. LMFHO.

But that would have been unprofessional, Ain't that right PHIL. ?


8.) 03 Sep 2017 21:32:06
Ed I know your opinion on the matter may have as much ground to it as mine due to you being unable to read the players mind.
But do you see any chance of him staying say if he were to be used as much as he possibly can this season and we win a cup and do well in the league hypothetically. I feel if he felt he was valued and one of the first names on the team sheet he would be happy to stay. Someone above mentioned it will be more difficult for him to play when Keita comes, which is hard to argue, but I can see Coutinho leaving by next summer and Can could find himself playing in a 2 man midfield with Keita or a three with Keita and another.
I've always rated Can ever since we've bought him, know he wasn't brilliant at times last year, but at times he actually was brilliant. Always seen the potential in him. remember Ed02 saying when we signed him that an opinion of an ex German Intertational midfielder (always thought he was referring to Ballack) is that he could become one of the best central midfielders in the world, or along them lines. Think everyone's starting to see how good Can can be, and consistently so far this season. Would be more than a shame to lose him.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there is a chance, but he needs to picked over other players, rather than just getting his chance because of injuries. He knows Klopp has gone out and bought other players for his position on a number of occasions in a bid to replace him. Klopp needs to make it clear that they are not to replace him unless he allows them to.}

9.) 04 Sep 2017 03:46:29
Him and Hendo are the only 2 players shirts i currently have, will be gutted if he goes but you can't exactly bench your captain and a new big money signing in order to play him so i understand why he wants to leave. would rather he used this as an opportunity to prove his worth though, he either already is or definitely will be better than Henderson and he seems to have similar leadership qualities too so arguably could replace him if he proves himself but ah well.

10.) 04 Sep 2017 09:13:47
Can has nothing else to prove to anyone but himself cos he has more than come good for the club, period. He is right to assess his options if the manager is bringing in other mids. That is just normal for a player to re-evaluate his standing in the team cos like it or not, Can is in his fourth season here and is now and integral part of the team and has more than earned his right to start. Klopp and the club have to make it clear that he is wanted here and will get his chances and he is not being replaced. It will be up to him in the end.



01 Sep 2017 23:21:53
Could be interesting how coutinho situation plays out in next week to ten days. Will we hear from him or his representatives saying he wished for a dream move to Barcelona but no fee agreed so now will giv his all to lfc? Will he jus say he dissapointed a move never materialised and he still injured and not available for selection by lfc? Will we even hear from him at all? I'm. not sure when Brazil play again but I think it could be a very awkward situation when he back at Kenwood. As ed002 said earlier he made it clear he didn't want to play for lfc again and he dislikes klopp! This pantomime could get worse if we don't tread carefully.


1.) 02 Sep 2017 00:08:14
He can hardly claim still injured, otherwise he will cause issues between Brazil and Liverpool and stick himself in the middle of those, would just be digging himself into a bigger hole.

2.) 02 Sep 2017 00:09:04
If he is genuinely not happy we should have took £130+ million and let him go, replacement or not. He is a very good player but we paid £8 million for him. I'd sooner play a youngster in the role and take the cash. We have a good amount of midfielders and have coped without him.


3.) 02 Sep 2017 00:13:09
that’s assuming he does come back haha.

4.) 02 Sep 2017 00:42:50
I think that's why Klopp stood back from the saga, and probably told Coutts to sort it out with the clubs hierarchy.

That way at least Klopp can say, now that its sorted to Couts to come back and concentrate on the football side of things.

Great management if it happened that way.

5.) 02 Sep 2017 03:53:23
As much as he is probably totally pissed off, this is a World Cup year so he doesn't really have much choice other than to knuckle down and play his hardest. I don't have too many issues with him wanting to make that move as Barcelona and Real are on another level but it does continue to test the strength of legally binding contracts.

Pool decided to dig their heals in figuring with 1. no buyout clause, 2. delaying the Saurez move a year and 3. World Cup in June, they had a pretty strong hand. Net result, we get him for one more year. It has the potential to be a really good year, hopefully challenging for the title and worst case securing CL again, maybe last 8 in CL (too optimistic? ) and possible deep runs in the domestic cups.

6.) 02 Sep 2017 05:36:00
There's already a large boo brigade always ready to pile on the sh*t on to Fsg's head the moment there's a misstep. Can anyone imagine the outrage and outcry if Coutinho had been allowed to leave without being replaced? The club tried, but couldn't find a replacement. I always say "take the money and run", but in this case "take the money and run next summer" is a better option.

7.) 02 Sep 2017 08:30:37
LFC picked a good time to stand up to Barcelona as they may be a little weak since Neymar saga. I'd bet the surprise of not getting their man in spite of all the games pkayed with it has put them on the back foot a little now.

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.}

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 wonder how these things work, because I ain't got an igloo. So vvd hands in transfer request let's say for arguments sake saints accept it, do they contact the club's who have made an enquiry and say "right we have accepted a transfer request in behalf if vvd and our price is £xxx amount" would vvd agent advisors contact the club's who have enquired and say "saints have accepted a transfer request and informed us the price is this much" or is there such a thing as a transfer list that clubs look at and see who is available?


{Ed002's Note - No it is nothing like that.}
