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

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.


19.) 18 Jul 2018 13:34:18
This is a stupid thread.


 

 

26 Feb 2018 17:10:34
regards Jorginho - is that a rumour that has been verified?

Regards any type of player coming in to play that role in midfield. ACE! and honestly, I don't think it would matter who that player is. Anyone who is a little bit more tactically aware and can pass a decent ball will do wonders for the balance of our midfield allowing Hendo, Keita, gini etc to be the legs in the midfield. so whoever that player is, get him in! heck, bring lucas back to play that role!

Faithinworks

1.) 27 Feb 2018 12:22:39
Faithinworks, we are looking to move forward with our progression towards trophies, bringing Lucas back in a starting role will hinder that. I trust whoever Klopp picks for midfield will be a great choice, his track record for signings is pretty impressive, he seems to know the exact type of player that suits his system!


 

 

19 Apr 2017 09:56:36
Eds, what's the play with young Allan Rodriguez. What are the chances he gets his permit next season. Are the club wanting to fight to keep him?

Faithinworks

{Ed001's Note - the club would love to keep him, it is most likely he gets another loan move next season.}


1.) 19 Apr 2017 12:39:57
How good is he eds? Not seen much of him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he is highly rated by the club and in Germany.}


2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:00:11
i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

Remember when we used to routinely beat the top 4 teams whilst finishing 5th, 6th, 7th . . .

Today's results are the perfect reflection of why we are the Champions this season.

Now, in saying that, I do hope we can strengthen the team as I can't see this peak level of performances AND results being maintained foe a 3rd season in a row! Would be amazing if it did tho!

Faithinworks

1.) 06 Jul 2020 03:49:34
Everyone was freaking out about the City game last week but we only play them 2 times per season. They are a good team that can give anyone a hiding on their day, what matters more is consistency over a 38 game season.

Even the worst Liverpool teams of the past 30 years could hold their own against the best teams of the day, we always gave United, Arsenal or Chelsea a good game. The difference is we would then follow that up by losing to Coventry, Barnsley or Oldham.

This Liverpool team has the ability to grind out wins even when they are playing badly, no other team in the league can do that. As long as we keep this team together I see no reason why we can’t do this again next season, however if we want to win multiple trophies each season I think we need to strengthen.


2.) 06 Jul 2020 07:23:38
Good point OP.


3.) 06 Jul 2020 07:44:54
I just see a team that mentally are not firing on all cylinders. They are League Champions, first time in 30 years, got the job done and are now just lacking the desire to finish off the last few games.

If they needed the points you would see a different team with more intensity. I dare say if they were trying to go unbeaten they might go the extra yard and get the job done.

For me you will see a different team at the start of next season and yes a new signing or 2 would freshen the squad up. Shaq has to be replaced in my opinion.


4.) 06 Jul 2020 08:20:06
Spot on, OP. Irish Rover, I agree with you as well. This team looks mentally drained and frankly who can blame them. They have been at this relentless level arguably since the start of the 17/ 18 season so it is only normal that after reaching the goal of winning two of the biggest trophies in club football as in the CL and PL, it is only normal to see some sub-conscious mental drop-off, even tho they are trying their best clearly.

I did not care for the City game cos it mad no diff. even tho, I wanted us to show up and show out to try to win the game but we played well enuff to get beat 4-0 so we take that on the chin and move on. Whether we can bring players in is still to be seen so let's see what happens.


5.) 06 Jul 2020 11:32:26
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The most that city can do is take 6 points off you, forget them and concentrate on your own performance, they can’t stop us winning the other 36 games.


6.) 06 Jul 2020 11:42:27
Suddenly remember this one season (it was Rafa I think), beat United, hammered Real, and yet didn't win anything. You know which one I prefer.


7.) 06 Jul 2020 13:35:31
Right Haizan.

And Utd ground a key win out of a poor performance against Villa thanks to a guy who's now playing in Greece digging a shot out whilst he was falling over. Don't think many of their fans minded that they struggled past Villa whilst we smacked Villa 5-0 in the same month.

Ed2 -what is the threshold for "tapping up" a player? In NBA, Magic Johnson was fined 50 grand when Lakers president of basketball after praising a player from another team. Just saw Klopp's quotes saying sancho would look good in red but not sure we could do anythin this season.

In general, just interested whether that kind of. comment would warrant investigation?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - Tapping up would relate to a direct approach. I don't know what Klopp has said but you would have to see it in context - was he being asked if Liverpool are in talks to buy Sancho as the Fat Kid From Bolton is telling everyone now.


1.) 28 Jun 2020 11:08:48
Ed002 I think he might have just been answering a question and praising him as a player and in the end he did say he did not think he would see him signing for Liverpool this year.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have shown no interest in him and don't have the money to pay for him unless they sell two of Salah, Mane and van Dijk. So if he is simply answering a question that is fine.}


2.) 28 Jun 2020 12:03:34
Something like that Ed002. He said something along the lines of "he would look good in red but nobody would be more surprised than me, I don't think a transfer like this is possible". He was speaking to Bild I think.


3.) 29 Jun 2020 02:17:09
Thanks Ed, that is helpful.
I think Magic Johnson literally answered a questions about a rival player and responded saying how good he was then got slapped with a 50k fine haha. Was just interested if that was the same. seems crazy to me!


 

 

09 Jun 2020 13:10:30
ed2 - regards the werner 'release clause', just checking my understanding :

Is it more accurate this is a termination clause that Chelsea would agree to meet. but that it'd technically be Werner paying RBL to terminate his contract?

And, does this mean that in theory, Werner could opt against this termination clause and see out his contract?

thanks in advance.

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - No. The price has yet to be finalised as it depends on the terms of the payments. Werner can decide against signing a contract if he wants.}


 

 

05 Apr 2020 05:12:13
ed2 - I must admit I haven't paid much attention to the news at Tottenham and now Liverpool. Before I comment, just wanted to check that Liverpool have done what Tottenham and that the moral issue here is that Football Clubs as private entities, shouldn't receive handouts from the government?

Faithinworks

{Ed002's Note - No that is not the issue. I don't really want to open this up again as it will bring out those trying to justify it who previously were castigating the other clubs who had taken this approach. It has been very embarrassing.}


1.) 05 Apr 2020 14:00:13
Football clubs are entitled to the hand outs and contribute an awful lot towards tax but does it seem right to you? we’ve recorded record profits, can afford to pay 12 players over £100k a week, fork out millions in transfer fees but can’t afford to pay our non-playing staff?


2.) 05 Apr 2020 15:30:06
The money Liverpool are taking from the government could have been used to fund the NHS. It's disgraceful.

Keith- Yea he does know and I am almost certain he would add to the squad if he could.

Track the arvo of the team, these performance levels aren't sustainable on the same group of players imo maybe Klopp can squeeze another 12 months out of this group. But I am convinced he would be wanting to freshen up the squad along the way.

I am so over "big name", "marguee" types of slogans being flung around.

It's like no one takes notice of the work the club has done with recruiting over Klopp's time. It is amazing to me that we still have a large group of people calling for these 'big names' and then falling over themselves when it looks like we haven't signed said player. It is embarrassing.

I love what we have done and will back FSG to keep doing their job. I'll always be on the side of signing the right player not the most expensive. And I think FSG have proved for the most part that they have got it right.

I think signing someone like Thiago fits in with the evolution of our team. Klopp spent the first year or two training the team's conditioning and fighting that dutch guy on twitter. where is that guy now btw!?

and then his signings were reflections of the type of player we needed to execute that kind of full tempo style. I think with the likes of Keita and Minamino we are seeing similar types of players with high energy but also with technique to help us break through sides. Bringing in someone like Thiago would just be another natural evolution along that track of finding a 'playmakers' to help us between the lines. But the evolution part would be that we have so mastered our pressing game that we could have the luxury of bringing in a player like Thiago who doesn't bring that kind of energy 100% but will be protected in the team that will allow him to bring he best out of his strengths. I think this could have been Coutinho had he decided to stay.

anyways, I'm still of the mind that we simply have too many bodies in midfield to make the money worth spending. Fabinho, Hendo, Gini, Ox, Keita, Milner, Jones. not worth it for me unless at least two of those names are going.

just had a look and see Joe is still 23! Not discounting that he eneds to develop in leadership, mentality etc. But equally acknowledging that these things usually develop with time. having him next to VVD will be a massive help for his development and is why I am hopeful whoever we bring in at CB is someone that won't take away from Joe. Yes he has to earn his spot, but I think there is a difference in message being sent to Joe if we splash cash on DC or Koulibaly for example. and as someone else said he is a confidence player and imo we should play to that and beef up his confidence but promoting him as the best 1st option to partner VVD.
