You got to laugh, apparently now, with only 2 days left for ousmane dembele to accept new terms, then he is off to a new club on a free and we have now submitted and are top of the list for offers for his services. I just cannot see that and more paper BS.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 13:07:10
Where is he going to fit in with the 20 other new players we're supposed to be signing?

2.) 27 Jun 2022 13:26:03
Ok, Dembele and ‘the Otter’ in and Keita and Salah out - job done.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 13:55:23
Never get a game the fsg out brigade want at least 6 new wingers.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 13:56:06
Doesn’t he want more money than Salah.

5.) 27 Jun 2022 14:41:57
Dembulance ? ?.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 15:10:42
I think we should ban Dembele talk. It's not good for our health. I think VVVV got so worked up he moved to the New Forest to live as Tarzan in total isolation from the internet.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 15:58:12
MK Scouser, if true about VVVV, I’m sure we can get a carrier pigeon sorted to deliver him a message that Demebele is about to sign, that’ll get him swinging.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 19:24:32
Just mention Traore and he will come :)

9.) 27 Jun 2022 23:39:01
Part of LFC's transfer tactics are surely to give out tonnes of bum steers, this being one.

Looks like the issahaku rumour can finally be put to bed, just been announced at sporting lisbon.

Apparently about to sign some Celtic youngster, 16 year old wide attacker Ben Doak, already made his debut in January and will be minimal compensation fee for his training due to not yet old enough to sign pro terms.


1.) 14 Mar 2022 22:28:29
I think Ed02 said we can’t sign him until he is 18.

2.) 15 Mar 2022 12:32:55
Ed01, quick one, the player is 16, not signed a professional contract yet, is he not allowed to sign on for us youth terms or must he wait till 18? Assuming of that is the case his only options is to remain in Scotland with Celtic / another team, or move abroad to another league.

{Ed001's Note - it depends on circumstances but on a basic can we just sign him on a normal transfer from Celtic, no. However, if say for example, one of his parents got a job in the area and the family were moving, then we could. So it is not a simple yes or no.}

3.) 15 Mar 2022 13:10:48
Makes sense Ed, thanks for the info.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

4.) 15 Mar 2022 16:14:29
Is it normal Ed001 for clubs to give the parents employment to help a transfer?

{Ed001's Note - used to be, Barca did so with Messi, even though it is not supposed to happen any more, but there was a lot of cheating around him that is not supposed to be allowed so what does one more thing matter?}

5.) 15 Mar 2022 16:51:42
I think with some of the issues around other owners, sorting out local employment for a couple of Scots would be pretty irrelevant!

Ok, so the outgoings are starting to move, Bradley on loan to Bolton for the season, and now minamino fee agreed for him to join Monaco for up to 15.5m. Plus neco spars fly will be subject of a bid from Fulham this week.


1.) 21 Jun 2022 22:24:31
I think we’re just balancing the books after the Nunez signing.

By end of window we won’t be far off breaking even.

2.) 22 Jun 2022 03:35:36
@JK23, I don’t think it works like that though mate.

In isolation, for the period June - August 2022 you could say that we spent

£64m on Nunez
£5m on Carvalho
£4m on Ramsay

although there is the potential in the future for a fair few add-ons.

But, if we don’t buy anybody else, let’s say we have spent £73m.

On the other side of the ledger, assuming Mane and Taki go through we will recoup

£27.5m for Sadio
£12.9m for Taki

Making, let’s say @ £40m. Obviously there might be other sales but at the moment there is a difference of approx £30m.

The thing is we bought Luis in January for an initial @ £38m and we didn’t sell anyone so that would mean that to break even on the last two windows we need to recover £68m.

As ever, also worth noting that the figures I’ve used are based on figures in the public domain which may or may not be 100% reliable. And, as ever, I would say I am not capable of running a multi-million business.

Of course, it also needs to be remembered that transfers are only one area of revenue and there would be lots of other factors in the final P&L report and it will be interesting to see how our other revenue streams have fared with a return to spectators being allowed in, game day revenues and prize monies from our adventures in the cups etc.

So, my conclusion is that we are going to sign a CM / CDM in this window. No logical reason - just a gut feeling.

3.) 22 Jun 2022 06:29:32
WDW 100% get that mate and agree. Selling players now will just be one avenue of balancing the books. Performances on the pitch getting us 2nd and to a CL final would have brought in some great revenue alongside the tv money.

I’d love to see us do more business on a midfielder and let’s be honest the way this club have done business recently we can never say never.

4.) 22 Jun 2022 08:20:58
I can just see Ed002 shaking his head whilst sipping a G&T muttering "this is why we don't discuss finances"

5.) 22 Jun 2022 08:59:43
According to Neil Jones (very reliable) -

"Billy Koumetio the next Liverpool youngster to go out on loan. He's set to join Austria Vienna for the season.

"Rhys Williams, Jake Cain, Sepp van den Berg, Owen Beck, Paul Glatzel and Leighton Clarkson among those likely to follow him out in search of experience. "

6.) 22 Jun 2022 10:28:33
@Stuie - absolutely agree mate.

My workings out are very, very simplistic and are based solely on the figure most often quoted in the media and I was more trying to point out (in general and not having a go at JK23) that finances are a tad more complex than the idea we spent so much on new players has to be balanced by the amount that we get for selling players.



30 Jun 2021 12:21:28
Ok, so official now parson daka signed for Leicester, that's one of the rumoured options off the list for us, are we getting closer to the one we want is it no one coming in?


1.) 30 Jun 2021 15:19:48
at least we don't have to worry about a 3-way striker competition lol or perhaps that only really applies to us . . !?
ah well, he gone. Hope he does well!

2.) 30 Jun 2021 15:25:03
Not sure we were actually in for him or if we even bid for him. If anyone knows better than me, please enlighten me.

{Ed002's Note - I dealt with this weeks ago.}

3.) 30 Jun 2021 15:40:35
Ah, thanks Ed02. I may have missed it. Did we bid for him or not, pls?

4.) 01 Jul 2021 00:03:49
I've read elsewhere that he turned us down, due to lack of assurances about playing time. No idea if it's accurate. But he's at least smart and knows he's not dislodging Mane and/ or Salah just by signing a contract with LFC. Maybe he feels Iheanacho, Perez and Barnes would be easier to dislodge. Or become Vardy's eventual successor.

Ship has sailed on Bellingham, however, optimistic for the future, looking forward to seeing what some of the kids who have been on loan come back and do. Bradley looks ready, and quansah who I haven’t see. Much of, looks like he can do something. Bake rice back after injury and a proper full pre season with the first team, have high hopes. Obvsiouly a few transfers to be made and things could be looking up.

I would start to have a look at Trent In midfield, a type of de Bruyne role, he has the passing and running and strength to perform, but might take a bit of time to acclimatise to it. Would leave at right back a couple of youngsters though, Ramsay and Bradley, so I would go for a seasoned pro, who wouldn’t block there path, and hopefully not cost a bomb. Midfielders, we lose keita, ox and Milner, but gain Trent as a mid, Morton comes back from loan, hopefully integrate him back in as a 6 as seems to be doing well at Blackburn, and then maybe bring in at least 1, but really 2 mids, ideally Laimer and Bellingham, which would leave us then elder players having reduced time, Henderson and Thiago, Fabinho the sitter switching with laimer, then the 6 and 8 roles you have Trent, Thiago, Morton, Bellingham, henderson and jones. Would get bajcetoc a loan for next season to get him game time and progression. Forward line, expect to see firmino depart, and salah being off his game, Definately need 1 who can play right the way across. I would look at gnabry on a free, and try that position along with Harvey, entrap strikers would be Nunez and jota, left Diaz and carvalho. Centre half, was hoping van den berg could show what he was all about this season, but that nasty injury has put paid to that. Hopefully he can come back and pick back up, but failing that, would sell matip and bring in another.

You have to at some point have some forward planning. Would be very surprised if Klopp hasn’t already done this. It could be that Morton comes back from Blackburn having as good an impact as Elliott, and comes straight back in to the squad and hit the ground running, Elliott himself a year older and more game time, same with Jones, with possibly 1 midfielder brought in next year. There are so many kids coming through, loads highly rated, not all will make it, but buying players will only block their pathway, but I am expecting at least 1, if not 2 to come I. To the squad from next season and starting to see more game time at first team level.

It’s early days, but I am impressed with how he is performing, maybe, just maybe, the decision not to go for a centre half this summer is because they feel this kid can step in, and early signs are promising. Would much rather have quansah, a kid right the way through the ranks step up and make the grade rather than spending millions. This would make 3 scousers in the team from the academy, long may it continue.

Maybe pre season is the time to try out young Calum chambers in the left of a back three, or even van den berg coming back to play the right side of the 3 and Konate and vvd shifting over?

You know what, this management have had the entire season to try and get us playing again. Yes we have had injuries, but they have had a mid season training camp, full weeks in between games for training, and then saying how well everyone is looking in training, then come match day, same old crap, same old mistakes, same old pattern of play, it’s ridiculous. I’m not saying klopp is a bad manage, far from it, but there comes a time where the club and manager just don’t function as well as they did, and I think that time is sadly now. I think we need to part ways, and the entire back room staff, as I think of klopp was brave enough, he would take back more responsibility and employ new people, new ideas, but his loyalty is holding us back now to players and staff alike. If was not doing my job for what I was employed to do, I would be sacked, this should be no different. This has the feel that there is a lot of toxicity behind the scenes, a lot of people leaving, internal squabbles with players not liking staff. I can take is getting beat, what I can’t take is the same players, same mistakes and same half arsed effort game in game out. It’s getting to the point now where I used to hate missing a game, now I hate watching a game, because I know players who are getting paid absolute fortunes are not turning up and playing with no effort. I for one am taking a break from watching us, these players are not turning up for us in these games anymore, so that feeling will be reciprocated from me.

Who knows though, maybe klopp has been up to his old tricks, tapping him up, tell him to force brightons hand and not play against us in the cup ha ha.

I agree, Caicedo would be amazing, imagine getting him and Bellingham in the summer, our midfield age starts to come down, Caicedo 21, Bellingham 20, bajcetic 18, Elliot 20, Jones 22, Morton 20. I would though, look and think we need someone on the 25-27 age bracket, and would think rabiot on a free would be amazing. Then the obvious ox and keita leave on a free, Milner either new 1 year or on to the coaching staff. Thinks could start looking a lot better from next season in a perfect world where we get those done. Have to laugh at TIA, talking about the unnamed club in Caicedo social media post, and talking up potential Liverpool, it’s bloody arsenal he is going to, not us, our eggs are in the Bellingham basket at the end of the season.
