ed2 - when a club loses a player for a number of months and potentially the season, do they have the option to kind of de-register them to free up a roster space?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - Unless they have space in their squad, he cannot be replaced until January - they cannot deregister him until January. There are no HG free agents available that would even come close to the likes of Williams and Phillips. It is an unfortunate injury, clubs have to deal with things like this all of the time.}


1.) 19 Oct 2020 12:51:22
If we can’t cope with a player being injured, leading player or not, then we have issues bigger than VVD.


2.) 19 Oct 2020 16:30:22
Glass half full is that Alisson is back in training and should be back soon, having a top class keeper behind Matip and Gomez will make a huge difference. As for Prickford, hopefully karma will even itself out on him.


3.) 19 Oct 2020 23:41:56
Ok so I think we need to be logical about VVDs injury. Last season we won the league by 18 points. Is his absence going to lose us that many points. Probably not. But he’s a massive loss and others have to step up to the plate. I hate to say it, but in united’s hay day that’s what their players did regularly. Klopp will find way.


4.) 20 Oct 2020 02:29:54
Thanks ed was just interested to know as they do have this provision in american sports.
Cheers.


5.) 20 Oct 2020 10:29:05
lakes4 - we didn't start the season with an 18 point head start.


6.) 20 Oct 2020 15:23:02
That's the whole idea behind a squad of 25, isn't it? And to build a squad of 25 (not just 11) that is as cohesive and similar in quality as possible, so that there's no let down when injuries happen. ManC did just fine without De Bruyne one season, and without Laporte the other. And Aguero is not fit half the time. Suck it up and move forward. Let the chips fall where they may.


7.) 21 Oct 2020 05:33:14
ArAy . but theh didn't do just give without Laporte, they lost 8 or 9 games and finishes 18 points adrift of us, . They needed to take fernandinho into the back and thus losing out in his midfield strenghts, I hope we don't suffer from Fabinho possibly being unavailable to play his best role every week.


8.) 21 Oct 2020 09:35:20
Agreed Har_red. But they came in second, and were still a potent force during the season. I suspect you're going to see a title winner with at least 8-9 loses this year. Compressed shorter season, no home-field advantage to speak of, players in and out due to catching c. v., and the usual injuries. I don't see how any team can play consistently in the face of such havoc and disruption.


9.) 23 Oct 2020 06:07:53
That is fairly true, I can't argue with the points you've made there.


 

 

14 Aug 2020 12:15:11
eds - echo quoted a club source who denied that the club had been in contact with bayern regards Thiago. part of the rationale they gave was that the club wouldn't want to pay a transfer fee for a player they could sign for free in a year. my question is, for any club wanting to sign Thiago this year, wouldn't they also negotiate an extension to his current contract? it seems like he wants to leave Bayern now, so if another club picked him sure they would be wanting to have him sign a multi year deal? otherwise what other club would pay a transfer fee for potentially a one year rental!?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - Thiago doesn't want to extend his contract. I don't get your point about a one year rental.}


1.) 14 Aug 2020 13:07:48
Once Thiago leaves Bayern he will no longer have a contract with Bayern. He’ll have a new contract at his new club, which I’m sure won’t be for a year. It will be negotiated when Bayern allow somebody to speak to him and it’ll likely be 3-4 years, allowing the buying club to get the remaining top years out of the player and the player to have the chance of extending or leaving for yet another club for one last hurrah, maybe the Middle East, Far East, America or Italy.

By that point he has little resale value, will have declined physically making him less suited to certain ways of playing, will have cost a lot of money in wages and transfer fees and potentially suffered from further injuries which are creeping into his career. Hence why somebody at Liverpool is rightly wary.


2.) 14 Aug 2020 19:39:13
Hi eds, can one of confirm if we are actually in for Thiago or not?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - RTFP. I have explained over and over the situation.}


3.) 14 Aug 2020 21:08:07
Evening Ed002 - Are you by any chance asking Redman 1 to listen to the Ross Tucker Football Podcast?

Just a small theory I’m working on 😁.

{Ed002's Note - F on't know what that is so I guess not.}


4.) 14 Aug 2020 23:13:52
ed2 - the question is, if Bayern sell thiago this summer, would the purchasing club also be negotiating a new contract for him that extends beyond the year he has left on his current contract? I'm asking the question because the echo rationale for Liverpool not wanting to buy Thiago is because the club don't want to buy a player whose contract is going to end in a year. I didn't understand their rational as it wouldn't seem to make sense for any club to spend money on a transfer who is going to become a FA in a year. that's the one year rental bit. happens in NBA all the time.

{Ed002's Note - I truly think you are completely confused about transfers. I have no idea what the Echo has said but if Liverpool want the player next year they can legally approach him next January. The length of his contract is unrelated to any club that buys him. So if Liverpool were to buy him they would look for a three to four year deal and would need to pay Bayern Munich an agreed fee.}


5.) 15 Aug 2020 00:24:46
Faithibworks you are after getting confused by what you read.

Whenever somebody transfers to a new club they sign a new contract with that club. What the echo mean is that Liverpool don't see value in spending €30m on a 29 year who could be a free agent in 10/ 11 months if he didn't leave Bayern this summer.

In reality, it seems more likely that Thiago will leave Bayern this summer so then he wouldn't be a free agent in 10/ 11 months. It's a case of which club will pay Bayern about €30m and Thiago to agree a contract with them. or maybe us, we'll have to wait and see.


6.) 15 Aug 2020 06:41:08
right, that's all I was after. Didn't need the carry on. Sean Ireland - I think you are right, I misinterpreted that bit about him being free in a year's time. I understood that for all transfers, the player would sign a new contract, hence the confusion in what I thought I'd read in the echo. Having said that, if Thiago says he wants to leave Bayern for anywhere now, then that would be the rationale to spend money on him this year because he won't be free in 12 months time by virtue of being at another club!


7.) 15 Aug 2020 09:23:11
Exactly ya 👍.


8.) 15 Aug 2020 09:35:14
Exactly ya 👍.


9.) 16 Aug 2020 03:16:19
We paid a higher fee to sign AOC when he was into his last year. We got nearly 12 mil for 31 yr old lovren with him available for free next year. 25mil would be good business to get thiago this year, why wait another year and lose out on a season where he could be a key player, this isn't huge money to be saying it can't be a wise investment.


 

 

12 Apr 2020 22:38:56
Ed2 - interested if you can share any info about how COVID-19 and its effect on the economy has altered how transfer negotiations are held? For instance, I just read a headline regarding Kane and Spurs holding out for 200mil. I'm not interested in that rumour but in how a normal discussion about transfer fees might be happening now? Can they even discuss figures right now!?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - Transfers this summer will split into (a) those already agreed and completed subject to paperwork (e.g. Hakim Ziyech (Ajax to Chelsea), Nicolo Barella (Cagliari to Inter Milan), Alvaro Morata (Chelsea to Atletico Madrid) and Trincao (Braga to Barcelona)); (b) the transfers several cash rich clubs would like to get over the line if possible (e.g. Mbappe, Sanco, Martinez, Pogba, Havertz etc.) although people will try and negotiate reductions in the cost of overall packages (e.g. Sancho); (c) there are the then the higher-profile clubs that will need to horse trade by looking to spread out payments if they can, include players in sales or have the sell to buy (e.g. Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are good examples; (d) the more run of the mill transfers where players are recruited to gain improvements in the sides, replace retiring and out of contract players etc..

You will certainly see less movement and less spend in the lower tiers as the money won't be there. Many will look to sell a player or two to the higher leagues to keep themselves out of trouble (e.g. Brad Young (G) has a move from Billingham Town to a Premier League side agreed already). And many PL and Championship sides are once again looking at players from the lower tiers.

In terms of transfer fees, we will still see a few very expensive transfers, you will see players having to stay where they are for another year, you will see efforts to reduce overall costs particularly agent fees - and across mainland Europe you will see even more horse trading than normal.}

awesome if we are after allison. He looks confident and assured. to be honest, goalkeeping skills aside, I feel that those kinds of characteristics are missing from our team. we come across a bit of a front-running team that performs at peak when the cards fall our way. be nice to have some guys that ooze class and confidence to play their game no matter what is in front of them. that's also what I like about shaqiri.

keep up the good work everyone. we've been trending in a positive direction for the last couple seasons now, it's really cool to see the growth of this team under Klopp and FSG.

Faithinworks

1.) 18 Jul 2018 03:14:21
Its not happening. Another false dawn.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 04:07:42
The Alisson Becker seems too good to be true to me honestly. The club had made some great signings and strides towards the future. However, I find it highly unlikely after Klopp stating that Ward would have an opportunity to be the number 1 keeper. Some of you might say who cares, but that type of rep of not keeping your word can deter players from coming.

I can't see Roma letting their best player go either, especially since they are not under any financial restrictions anymore as when they sold Salah to us. They would not let Becker go with no replacement lined up either.

Why would the club sign another keeper don't we have three on the books already. Four if you include Bogdan even though he is out on loan.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 05:42:07
I think Alisson will be leaving Roma this window regardless. Whether that is to us is a different matter. But I think he wants to go.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 06:04:52
How can people be certain that klopp actually said this to ward and it’s not just paper tosh? How can people be so certain that ward so he’d rather move on and be no1 somewhere else?

People always find something to moan about even when they might finally be getting what they’ve been asking for 🙄.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 06:31:18
HarrytheRed, TBF its not the first time Klopp has lied to one of his players. Seems to be a pretty regular thing.


6.) 18 Jul 2018 06:34:09
Totally agree Faithinworks, the fact that we are making offers for players of this calibre are signs that the club is making massive strides forward in the transfer market. An area in the running of the club that has been a bit doubtful until recently.
If we got Alisson and Fekir, what a fantastic window this will have been. Can't wait to finally see Keita in action too - what a season this could be!


7.) 18 Jul 2018 06:48:24
Harry, this is Monchi we’re talking about.
You really think he won’t sell a GK for £60+ million?

Every player has a price for Monchi. He will definitely sell, it just depends on whether the player can agree with the successful bidder.
Monchi will sell, don’t worry about that.


8.) 18 Jul 2018 07:02:54
Klopp had plenty of previous with telling a player one thing and doing another, Ward is particular already knows about it. Either way, both Karius and Ward now know for sure that Liverpool will replace them if we can, they both know they're replaceable.


9.) 18 Jul 2018 07:14:21
Didn't ED001 confirm contact had been made? If Klopp and FSG weren't serious about wanting the lad, why bother contacting? This isn't a game you know. Karius, Ward and Migs are all still on the books, why upset them even more if you don't think you've got a realistic chance of doing a deal?


10.) 18 Jul 2018 07:17:35
Let’s be honest. lots of players have no loyalty to their managers and clubs either. They say one thing and do another. ( Coutinho! )


11.) 18 Jul 2018 07:40:40
@87Red

Spot. on!


12.) 18 Jul 2018 08:24:06
Surely all managers tell all players they have a chance of playing don’t they? Unless they want to get rid of them. Otherwise the players will have zero motivation.


13.) 18 Jul 2018 08:26:27
The “Ward opportunity to be no. 1” story just seems to be unfounded supposition. There seems to be no attributed or even unattributed source for this, just someone guessing. Until there’s a credible source for this, just ignore.


14.) 18 Jul 2018 09:07:48
Let’s be honest lads do you actually care who plays for the club and doesn’t and how much they cost cos I don’t we could play Kamil grabara in goal next season as long as he performs and the team do well who cares . It’s about the team not the individual . The board have obviously decided that with the keepers we have we aren’t strong enough to compete for the end goal .
Let’s just support the team and club no matter what 👌🏻.


15.) 18 Jul 2018 09:19:03
Dawkins i’m assuming it’s because klopp said he'll play longer than 45 minutes in the next friendly, the media put 2+2 together and got 5 as always lol.


16.) 18 Jul 2018 10:21:04
Brisbane LFC, why are you always so quick to accuse the LFC manager of lying? Please share any actual evidence - not hearsay or gossip - of when he has lied.


17.) 18 Jul 2018 11:15:45
Wirral, cos I don't think klopp is all that and I haven't fallen under his spel like many have.


18.) 18 Jul 2018 11:49:01
Brisbane, fair enough that you don’t rate Klopp but I just think repeatedly calling him a liar is going a bit far without the evidence to back it up. But I wouldn’t like to fall out with a fellow Red over it.

ed2, regards the announcement of this ESL and this other group of Elite Clubs. I was of the thought that this ESL would be unlikely to go ahead anyways given it'd need to be a few years away and that the Elite Clubs would still be meeting to discuss matters including other breakaway options.

Ed, my 2 questions for your opinion are

1- has the announcement of this ESL just pure and simply been a PR nightmare?

2- is there an alternative option that would win support of fans?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - 1. It is carrying out a threat made by FSG last year when Project Bigfoot fell apart for Liverpool and Manchester United. And yes it is a PR nightmare as they did not think they would end up being thrown out of their own leagues. The Serie A clubs (without Inter, Milan and Juventus) have been in discussions for the past half hour or so already. 2. There are several options that most fans could likely live with but they are not on the table right now.}


1.) 19 Apr 2021 13:30:05
Are we saying then, that the 12 clubs, who have come out and said they are discussing, and backing a potential european superleague, are to be thrown out of their respective leagues. Yet the "elite" european clubs, who have, correct me if im wrong ed, been doing the exact same thing for many years now, are allowed to do this with no repercussions?
I don't understand how that is allowed. Is it simply because the 12 have backed the league, and nit jyst discussed it?

{Ed002's Note - That is not what they have said. This is the result of a threat made by the owners of one of the clubs.}


2.) 19 Apr 2021 13:16:09
thanks ed. for the record, I am ok with all the breakaway talk.

for this specific one, the more I read about it and read your comments, the more I think that FSG could have done themselves a favour and sat back a bit. But then again, I can understand why they have given the other clubs here who have jumped the gun. Did FSG really have an option to not sign up here? It comes across to me like they were concerned that they would miss the boat.

{Ed002's Note - This is FSG carrying out their threat.}


3.) 19 Apr 2021 13:59:48
Hi Ed002, did the clubs realise the amount of backlash these proposals would face?

{Ed002's Note - I would think most did.}


 

 

19 Apr 2021 12:44:30
ed, I've had a read through and don't believe this has been asked.


regards the FA and UEFA banning players or teams who compete in this ESL. is it really as simple as that? Would the broadcasters have to be consulted before making such a move given it would drastically reduce the quality of the competition / product?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the broadcasters. The clubs would be operating outside of the FIFA and UEFA structures and would no longer be affiliated with affiliated with The FA and Premier League. After expulsion, if the proposal colapses and they with to return it needs to be in the fifth tier (so the National League).}


1.) 19 Apr 2021 12:58:24
ok, I wondered if there is some kind of clause where either party could null the contract. Mind you, I guess if the these 6 clubs had to re-enter at the bottom, then the players may sign at other clubs eventually. I suppose that would keep the quality of the product valuable for TV.


2.) 19 Apr 2021 13:08:07
sorry ed, ignore my other comment. simply put, what I was wondering is whether there is some form of get-out clause for whoever pays the TV money if they felt the quality of the product was being significantly reduced, and then wondering whether that would impact on the decision of the FA and Premier League.

13 Feb 2021 20:01:09
If Thiago fouled Barnes then Salah was fouled in 1st
Have no idea what lines we are looking at with VAR. Wtf was that blue line? Was firmino wearing size 20s? Lol
Mane was fouled in build up to their 2nd goal. 2 hands in the back and no call? You're having a laugh
3rd goal is classic Salah, cheap easy giveaways. Can someone tell me what he actually offers the team besides his goals?
Ok, got that out the way hahahahaha what a terrible result after a brilliant performance until it unravelled. All the above ranting, those things went our way last season and before. For you ballers out there, does this time resemble the Golden State warriors 2 seasons ago when the wheels came off after a long run of such high performance?
Anyways, do the best they can and get through this season. Top 4 is the aim, see how CL goes. That may be the team's solace.
P. s. play 2 CBs from now. The impact of removing Fab and hendo from midfield for so long is just embedding the systemic issues the team has and the rot will set. #freethemidfielders.

Faithinworks

1.) 13 Feb 2021 20:34:53
“Can someone tell me what he actually offers the team besides his goals? ” Is this for real? Literally Salah is one of the greatest forwards to play for the club and this is the nonsense people come out with. Give your head a wobble. He’s the only goal threat we’ve got.


2.) 13 Feb 2021 20:41:58
3-1 loss is not a brilliant performance. It’s a 90+ minute football match not 70 mins. It’s a terrible performance which is no suprise because this decimated squad has given up. We concede 1 goal and we Chuck the game time after time. Tools down in Prem. I’m praying we turn up against RB. Praying.


3.) 13 Feb 2021 20:45:32
Faithworks you normally post sense. But the Salah comment is ridiculous. You are hurting now but he is the top scorer in the pl. Take his goals out and we would be very near the bottom.


4.) 13 Feb 2021 21:06:01
Faithinworks, is this the same world class Salah who scores loads, works hard for the team and tracks back. He has performed to an incredible, consistent level for 4 seasons. There are some serious issues with the team at present, but Salah is the least of my worries.


5.) 13 Feb 2021 21:27:51
He's winding you up.

7.) 13 Feb 2021 22:47:17
Burkey- you got it, read the whole post lol but also provide a response and something constructive in return.

I have no problems saying that Salah is the most sellable asset from our attacking trio. I've also said he is our most frustratingly enigmatic superstar. I mean is there any other player that scores this many goals but still leaves you wanting more? Haha that's my feeling about Mo, not angry or wanting to get rid. But surely others too can see that we need more from him in terms of the overall game in attack. On another funny side, remember when we said we needed a 20+ goal a season striker to win the league. lol I guess it's not always the case that 1+1=2.


8.) 13 Feb 2021 23:12:23
Burkey, we did read the whole post and that Salah comment is still hilarious.


9.) 13 Feb 2021 23:23:11
LiverpoolFC8 - you can have a brilliant performance and not get the result. and actually one of the things you need to do in sport and in life as well is to separate outcome from the performance. allowing either to over power the other when you assess things, get ya all twisted. the team aren't that far away but they probably feel like they are trying so hard to get it back to normal, that it's not surprising to see things spiral out of control like they have. They need some luck an definitely as much support from the fans. imagine being the players, socially isolated, spending more time online than usual and reading more rubbish from their own fans about how useless they all are.

they're not useless but are really struggling at the minute. The season itself isn't lost so I hope they can get back on the horse and have the ball bounce our way a couple times as we right the ship.

Were VVD and Allison being chased like Haaland et al? Can't recall but I don't think it was like that. despite us paying massive fees for them two, I think Champs point is that we're not typically in the market for the world's most sought after players.

6tumes - if fans were in charge there would be new players and manager every season. Mane has been a key player for us, has the perfect attitude and style for Klopp. Got C.V. at start of year and all people want to look at is his lack of goals and are ready to move him on. Like people who wanted Klopp gone, he deserves more loyalty in assessment than that.

the general rule of thumb seems to be that some fans just need to bag one player and insist they are sold. no loyalty, no big picture, just negative get rid mentality.

It's pretty natural for a people or group to kick back against the establishment. Espesiclaly when they see that the establishment maintains all the power but it's the people or group who are the most influential.

No one is blaming fans. Just pointing out the hypocrisy. These are the same fans who shout greed but then want their owners to spend spend spend. East when it's not your money aye?

Someone else said there was European football before champions League. Yes, then it evolved and changed into a bigger money spinner. UEFA are trying to evolve again to make more money. See how it works?

Ed1, if as you say the eventual and inevitable breakaway will be an exclusive competition anyways, then what is going to be different about other alternative options? Ed2 says that there is an elite group of clubs still discussing this and that group includes clubs who are of this 12 and others who are not. I'm trying to imagine what alternative version of a breakaway league is going to be announced that will appease everyone.

This ESL appears to me to be a PR disaster, which has been par for the course for FSG to be fair. But, given we know there are talks ongoing and that inevitable change is coming, it feels to me that this is more about aesthetics than real virtue.

{Ed001's Note - it won't appease everyone, but what happens is that people become apathetic if you keep pushing something on them. The first time they react angrily but gradually you wear down resistance if you just keep trying every so often and that is what I believe will happen.}
