Hi ed002

Tried a search but is there any truth in Liverpools interesti n signing KV Oostende's 22-year-old midfielder Kenny Rocha Santos



{Ed002's Note - Kenny Rocha Santos (CM) I really don't know if Liverpool have any interest but it would be as cover only - he was average at St Etienne and again at Nancy. He has dropped down to play for a poor team in Belgium. Makes no sense.}

Is it true PSG are looking to loan out wijnaldum in January? Would Liverpool be interested?

Thanks as usual.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool let him go because they would not meet his wages - PSG gave him more - why would Liverpool now pay more than he wanted when he left? He will go elsewhere.}

1.) 08 Dec 2021 22:30:22
He’s not needed anymore
Great player and will always be remembered for what he done for the club but I think we’ve moved on and so should all the fans and get behind the likes of Morton Elliot Jones who can all compete to fill his void.

2.) 08 Dec 2021 22:33:25
That went well. Grass ain’t always greener.

{Ed0666's Note - well he achieved his goal for a filthy signing on fee and a bumper wage hike. Grass was deffo greener vvvv

3.) 08 Dec 2021 21:44:12
Hi Ed002

Wouldn’t psg be paying his salary?

{Ed002's Note - Why would they do that.}

4.) 08 Dec 2021 21:02:49
On loan ed or permanently?

{Ed0666's Note - hey?? Who you talking about mate?

5.) 09 Dec 2021 05:14:32
So it’s official now? We don’t need to sign a Gini replacement anymore?

6.) 09 Dec 2021 08:08:40
Pipco part 2?

7.) 09 Dec 2021 08:33:55
To be fair WDW, what nobody on here foresaw last Summer was Elliot’s emergence as a midfielder, and one of quality if his few appearances were anything to go by.
He was effectively Wijnaldum’s replacement.
But have we got enough to go to Chelsea and City and win, with him still missing?
I think if the money had been there, we’d have signed another midfielder anyway.
I’m definitely hoping that this squad can bring in silverware this season, it’d be so frustrating to see it fall just short.

8.) 09 Dec 2021 09:55:32
Move forwards not back. Good luck to him but there isn't a place for hime at Liverpool. He's been replaced by youth, quality youth at that!

9.) 10 Dec 2021 19:20:21
Klopp never take’s players back end of. Not his way.



03 Nov 2021 17:28:13

Could you explain (high level) this "tax break/ incentive" in Italy for professional footballers?



{Ed002's Note - They have lower highest-level tax rates in Italy which is why it costs less to pay the same wages.}

1.) 04 Nov 2021 07:14:51
In Italy footballers and other elite sports folk can get 50 percent tax exemption. They are required to pay an annual fee if they claim the exemption. It’s done at varying levels in other countries.

hi Ed002

I know this is the liverpool site and happy to repost this on a more appropriate one but can you give us an update on what looks like a lot. of high profile moves in the pipeline? Ronaldo, Mbappe, Haaland

Thank you!


{Ed002's Note - (a) Is moving this summer when someone offers Juventus about €30M and the player about €500k per week or so. (b) May move to Real Madrid this summer, if not next. (c) Will move next summer to Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or Chelsea.}

1.) 27 Aug 2021 15:00:44
ed2 - Liverpool are rarely if ever named as one of these clubs in the running for the likes of the true global superstars like Mbappe, Haaland etc. I don't actually mind this to be fair, as I like how we approach things. However I am interested as to whether this would ever change? We're 5th in revenue in 2021 aren't we? I remember you used to say that the elite players wanted to go to clubs that compete for trophies every year. we seem like we're on the way there if not there currently. So I guess I interested to hear your view of what Liverpool would need to do differently to have a chance to be signing these superstar players.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool's revenue is of no relevance as they do not have cash to buy with - that can only come from profit from the revenue (Liverpool have none as they are lossmaking for the last year reported, income from transfers - Liverpool have raised a little this summer but also purchased Konate and have debt from last year, and a small amount the owners can put in.}

2.) 27 Aug 2021 17:00:33
How can we be so far behind financially, how do cities/ united/ chelsea's wages make sense?! are they just better managed then us?
How can we compete with these teams in the long run?

{Ed0666's Note - we can’t and we’re gonna get relegated

3.) 27 Aug 2021 17:15:32
You said relegated!
But winning the league will be a challenge!

4.) 27 Aug 2021 16:40:12
Thanks ed002 - good to hear the perspective 👍.

5.) 27 Aug 2021 20:16:48
to hell with them all. spend all your like. We're 100% the best team in the league. Champs all the way.

6.) 28 Aug 2021 00:05:45
I think mbappe is a good player as is Ronaldo and haaland however they all started somewhere there are other players out there who are just as good or have the potential. It’s a team game and people forget that. What klopp has done on what I would say is a modest budget compared to some others is build a team. Salah mane jota these players weren’t too goalscorers. Now they are. The team is bigger than one player.

7.) 28 Aug 2021 06:46:11
thanks for the responses ed. Couple final Qs -

I was reading about manU's share price increased 8% since the Ronaldo signing. Has FSG sold any shares in Liveprool?

what is the benefit for a club to do this? is it more to do with the overall value of the club that would be more beneficial for the owners as opposed to making any difference with profit / loss?

{Ed002's Note - FSG sold part of the business to RedBird. There are no shares in Liverpool.}



11 Feb 2021 19:52:18
Liverpool and Man City are both interested in Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus, according to kicker.

Eds is this true and any idea if he is a good target?



{Ed002's Note - Florian Neuhaus (CM) There remains significant interest in the Borussia Muenchengladbach player with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund seeing him as a player who will continue to improve. Real Madrid see him as an option in midfield and his representative has made no secret that there has been interest from elsewhere including Manchester City, Spurs, Juventus and the Milanese clubs, but Milan seems a less likely destination. Borussia Dortmund will push hard for him but they have growing money issues. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool at this time.

hi ed002

Sorry if I missed this on the search.

What is the situation with Origis contract?

Is he currently contracted to 2022 with am option to extend to 2024? Is the option unilateral for Liverpool?



{Ed002's Note - There is an option to extend and it is unilateral but the club would not stand in his way if he wanted to move on.}

1.) 25 Nov 2021 09:54:55
Edwards was looking for Lukaku type offer hence Origi stayed lol.



21 Sep 2021 20:27:10
ed001 your thoughts please

if we didn't have alisson do you think kelleher would be no1 or is he not yet good enough?

shame for the kid he has alisson ahead of him as i think he will be a quality keeper if he gets regular game time now (key development age for him)


{Ed001's Note - we would have bought someone else if not Alisson. Kelleher is certainly close to being good enough, but he lacks a commanding presence.}

1.) 21 Sep 2021 21:10:16
That will come with time and learning off AB Tris.



11 Aug 2021 23:04:07
Ed002 please.

For my curiosity please could you list a few Italian players Liverpool have declared an interest in under Klopp?

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Nicolo Barella, Sandro Tonali and Federico Chiesa.}

1.) 12 Aug 2021 11:46:26
Yes please.

2.) 12 Aug 2021 11:57:49
Our run of bad luck with Italian players has to end at some point. I’m surprised we hadn’t taken a look at Berrardi, seems a Klopp type player, works hard, can play anywhere across the front, isn’t a slouch for pace and scores goals for fun.

{Ed002's Note - Sell Salah and call Sassuolo but the player has made it clear who he wants to play for - certainly Liverpool have watched him Berardi.}

3.) 12 Aug 2021 12:04:29
I'll take ALL 3 pls, Thanks Ed02.

{Ed002's Note - They won't be joining.}

4.) 12 Aug 2021 12:22:36
If Salah were to leave (not that I want him to, the man is an incredible player) he’d be a reasonable option. But equally we’d be crazy to sell a genuine world class player like Salah. That and I don’t see anyone out there with pockets deep enough to buy him.

{Ed002's Note - There are clubs that can afford him but Liverpool are not looking to sell. His value has peaked and is now dropping because of his age.}

5.) 12 Aug 2021 12:52:38
VVVV - What? Berardi as a reasonable replacement for Salah? The former has never scored more than 17 in a season and averages just under 10 at 27 years of age, yet here we are stating he could replace the world’s premier right-sided wide player?
Salah is irreplaceable.

6.) 12 Aug 2021 12:44:19
Thanks for the response Ed0002.

7.) 12 Aug 2021 13:28:19
One can only dream, eh Ed02?

8.) 12 Aug 2021 13:44:33
Barella! I can live with not signing top class players like this but at least we’re showing an interest in them. Thanks ed002.

9.) 12 Aug 2021 14:04:01
Lowe, those were the kinds of figures Salah was posting in Serie A before he joined us. I’d say that is a reasonable guideline. Particularly given he’s scoring decent amounts of goals in a team that isn’t at the top of the tables.



19 Apr 2021 17:44:08
Hi Eds

If a player didn't wish to play in the ESL (for example so they could continue to represent their country), would they be able to claim something akin to constructive dismissal from the club?



{Ed002's Note - No, because if they leave the club it would be as a Free Agent in that case and they can negotiate a move to another side.}



24 Oct 2020 11:26:40
Dear UK Reds

Anyone considering watching the game on PPV tonight please think about donating instead.

Eds not sure if it is allowed but a lot of donations are going to.


1.) 24 Oct 2020 12:06:52
Great idea Forza Red. I'm in 👍.

2.) 24 Oct 2020 16:40:22
thanks for fixing my post eds!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

ed002 do you think deals like this will become more likely going forward (a loan with a conditional obligation to buy) .


{Ed002's Note - No more so than they are now.}

Eds do you know if Lallana will move on?


{Ed001's Note - he would like to go back down south, so it is very possible.}

(f), (g) and (h) is recoverable dependent on the contractual obligations and wording. I provide input on the structure of transactions specifically to allow this.

Regiater yourself as a member first.

Realistically you're unlikely to get any tickets on general sale this season, possibly if we go through this round of the FA cup and get another home draw against a lowerleague team.

You can sometimes buy some of the cheaper, "hospitality" tickets for Cat C games these go for around £150.

Tough one I can't see us smashing our wage structure for Salah.

I actually think giving Salah a monster contract will motivate and attract other players and show them that we reward the best of the best but don't see how we can actually afford it.
