Quick question, where are we at in terms of signings/ negotiations? The Norwich game was a great start, thought it past our midfield by until Fab came on, has the interest in Bissoumma gone now? Are there any new targets that have suddenly popped up? Cheers.

LancasterRed

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of new targets and I would not hold out much hope of Bissouma joining Liverpool.}


1.) 17 Aug 2021 12:50:31
ED002 - further down the page it would appear we can scratch R Sanchez, Saul Niguez, Neuhaus and Bissouma due to varying reasons. You have also stated that you do still expect Liverpool to make a signing in this window.

Are you able to tell us if that player is a midfielder or the versatile forward the club are seemingly both looking for? Or both still?

Regards,

KR65.

{Ed002's Note - Right now a versatile forward seems more likely.}


2.) 17 Aug 2021 13:02:28
OK Thanks ED002 - are we taking about Adama Traore?

Regards,

KR65.

{Ed002's Note - Possibly, or Sarr perhaps.}


3.) 17 Aug 2021 13:07:00
Paper talk is saying we hold interest in ismaila sart still, if we can move origi and shaq on to get him in, I would veiw sart as a better rotation option then both of them, tho he's not my first choice who I would like in.

{Ed0666's Note - sarr plays predominantly on the right so won’t dislodge Salah and on the left he has Jota and mane to contend with. I’m not so sure of his abilities to play across the front. An educated guess I would think it’s not gonna happen and he’d cost a few pennies also


4.) 17 Aug 2021 13:08:15
No Bowen anymore?


5.) 17 Aug 2021 13:04:53
Thanks for the replies and info ED002

Have a good day.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}


6.) 17 Aug 2021 13:08:15
No Bowen anymore?

{Ed002's Note - Less likely but possible.}


7.) 17 Aug 2021 13:15:57
Hi Ed002, I read that Sarr maybe available on loan and Man Utd is keen. Earlier you say Sarr is a possibility. Is the loan option to buy a real option?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United has no interest in Sarr and Watford will not be looking to loan him out.}


8.) 17 Aug 2021 13:39:25
Would zielinski still of interest ed? or that ship has sail.

{Ed002's Note - Napoli have lost out on his replacement so will be reluctant to sell now.}


9.) 17 Aug 2021 14:13:30
Sarr would be a great bit of business, there’s definitely talent there. I still think we’re short of quality beyond our starting three in midfield, but Sarr looks like he could really kick on and be a very very good player.


10.) 17 Aug 2021 14:32:11
Wonder why we never have a look at aouar. he seems to be a good player and still very young. plus i read somewhere that lyon is in need of money and probably will sold him at lower price than expected. can play in midfield and front three. have Liv ever watch or have interest in him ed?

{Ed002's Note - No - it would be buying for the sake of it using money the club doesn't have.}


11.) 17 Aug 2021 17:27:43
SARR would be a great buy imo. Looks dangerous.


12.) 17 Aug 2021 16:22:20
Is Insigne still a possibility Ed or not likely.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


13.) 18 Aug 2021 07:57:19
Thanks ED, still nothing regarding a sale of the club either? Or a magic investor that wants to focus on the team and not what they can build to sell for huge profit later on, when we have been used enough?

{Ed002's Note - No, nothing is happening.}


 

 

06 Aug 2021 12:43:18
Afternoon,
Any updates on Bissoumma please Eds? Has Philips and a fee actually been offered ? Are we still embarrassingly waiting to sell more fringe players? Thank You.

LancasterRed

{Ed002's Note - Yves Bissouma (CM/DM) Brighton will resist any approaches although the player has made known his desire for the club to consider offers for him but has not formally requested a transfer. He shares a "representative" with Pepe who he spent a season with at Lille and he failed to persuade Arsenal to move for him - and since then Arsenal have signed Partey and a change in the decision process at Arsenal means any move is only possible if they can clear the clutter of Torreira, Xhaka and Guendouzi - then they could look to him to play alongside Partey - but Xhaka is now staying. He is a significant upgrade on Xhaka and Elneny and will add experience with Dani Ceballos departing. Arsenal are working hard to sell players to make space for him but are struggling right now. Interest of Spurs will have departed with Mr Mourinho. Monaco may also provide an option but I suspect the price will be too high for them and they have a first choice preference. He is another who would be off to the Africa Cup of Nations in January 2022 and not Home Grown makes him less attractive to most English sides although Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester have spoken with his representative, but Leicester have another solution pretty agreed already. He is not first choice for Manchester City but they could return - Manchester United do not currently have space in the midfield and have a preferred target - Liverpool interest remains but they may not have the money. There is a further complication in that his family is directly involved in all major decisions.

Nat Phillips (CB) Liverpool will look to cash in and hang on to Matip which seems like a short-term plan to me. Liverpool need to be careful over the asking price as they are now smarting from rejections from other clubs for players where they are asking too much. Burnley were keen but are not happy with the £15M asking price - but there are talks. Bayer Leverkusen, Newcastle and Brighton may provide solutions for the player not wanted by Liverpool.}


1.) 06 Aug 2021 12:55:43
What's embarrassing is the desperation of fans for a transfer.
Expect more of it now City have spent £100 million on Grealish who isn't worth that much.

{Ed025's Note - if city win the EPL and CL flash then maybe he is worth the fee mate..


2.) 06 Aug 2021 13:15:02
Interestingly the Athletic's piece suggests Kessie, Florian N and Pellegrini are the 'best' fit for us if we wish to evolve, with no mention of Bissouma.
Re fee's if white is worth 50, then nat is worth 15, so burnley can do one.


3.) 06 Aug 2021 13:22:02
I very often agree that we over price our players but £15m for Phillips is more than fair. He's an upgrade on Tarkowski who they inexplicably wanted £50m for not that long ago.


4.) 06 Aug 2021 13:37:59
I'd be over the moon if we signed Kessie tbh. Such a great player and also a good age. Very versatile also.

Neuhaus would also be a good option but suggestions are he could be a next year job.

Bissouma is very similar to Kessie in that he's versatile (less of a goal threat) but very much prem proven.

Any of those and I'd be extremely happy. Saul would also be excellent.

Not holding my breath however, few more sales needed I expect.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have made no approach for Kessie.}


5.) 06 Aug 2021 13:54:22
Ed025 If City do win that lot I don't think it'll be due to the addition of Grealish, they are already a tremendous team and squad. He's not going to have the effect that Cantona had on their red neighbours. He's just another trinket to sit on a dresser already loaded with riches.

{Ed025's Note - you cant have too many good players flash, if he scores or assists goals that produce trophy winning performances then who is to say hes not worth it?, of course he could end up the biggest flop in history of course ...time will tell mate..


6.) 06 Aug 2021 14:17:56
Kessie says he's happy in Italy, so that seems to be a non starter.
He would add the most to our team according to the stats.


7.) 06 Aug 2021 14:28:55
Spaceman - The Athletic and TIFO are stocked with Football Manager obsessives who think the entire game revolves around stats and formations. Listening to the guys at TIFO try to analyse football is a painful experience I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Don’t forget they were among the first to attempt to justify Southgate leaving out Trent for the Euros. Ignore their ‘recommendations’.


8.) 06 Aug 2021 14:43:00
Good to know Lowe. Having said that we have been linked with all 3 of those players anyway, prior to TIFO doing their piece and they do all make sense as potential targets.
Personally i think Bissouma is the best bet, with Neuhaus coming in next year when Naby/ Ox leave.


9.) 06 Aug 2021 15:06:21
Bissouma is a really good player, he would certainly be one I’d target if Saul was just not possible (which it seems is the case) .


10.) 06 Aug 2021 16:11:17
I agree Flash mate. Grealish is certainly not the player to take them up another level. They already have Foden, Silva, Mahrez etc. The only area they fell short last season was a striker. The Grealish signing to me doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.


11.) 06 Aug 2021 19:06:37
---------------Take it to the Manchester City page please-------------------


12.) 06 Aug 2021 19:47:10
Bledd85 Not sure how closely you have watched Grealish mate because he is significantly better than Foden. and this is coming from a Foden fanboy.


13.) 07 Aug 2021 03:01:01
How is 15mil an unfair price for Phillips? Proved himself last season, still relatively young, Premier League ready - I’d of thought 15mil was a comparative bargain, I think we’re right to be holding out for at least that.


14.) 07 Aug 2021 05:16:13
I feel it's harsh on Nat Phillips. I'd have him above Matip n Gomez n VVD will probably be eased back into the season. Keep the lad!


15.) 07 Aug 2021 06:30:07
Jp1989 it Liverpool had a choice between Grelish and Foden it would be Foden all day long for me.


16.) 07 Aug 2021 12:26:42
Grealish to Man City seems such a strange one to me.
He couldn't get into the England team because of Sterling and Sterling struggled to get into the City team at the end of last season, because of Foden. I think that he will slow their play down by holding onto the ball too long.
But Pep usually knows what he is doing.
Until it comes to Champions League semis and final.


17.) 07 Aug 2021 12:55:43
I respectfully disagree JP.


 

 

24 Jun 2021 12:30:14
Afternoon Eds,
I saw in a rumour that you said Bissouma is our first choice Gini replacement, would Brighton and the player be aware of this as nothing much seems to be happening? I know other clubs are interested, just wondering if its a case of, we have told him we want him and the player knows he is coming or are we playing a dangerous game of hoping no one goes in for him and we get him on deadline day cheap? Cheers.

LancasterRed

{Ed002's Note - The player will be aware as Liverpool have spoken with his agent. I don't think they have approached Brighton yet but they will be aware. Arsenal are keen.}


1.) 24 Jun 2021 13:26:55
Ed002 - With our finances being tight, are Arsenal in a position to strike early should they decide to go for the player?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal are in a position where the money will be available for transfers but like all clubs the books need to be balanced through income and sales.}


2.) 24 Jun 2021 13:37:34
Fair enough…Thanks…. be interesting to see which club would be the players preference.


3.) 24 Jun 2021 14:14:17
He's an Arsenal fan Drogie and has been since a child.

I feel he'd choose them over us for that alone.

That being said I think (other than location) Liverpool is a much more attractive destination.


4.) 24 Jun 2021 14:39:25
Hi Eds. Have you ever heard that liverpool also approaching Otavio (Fc Porto) and Donyell Malen (PSV)? Appreciate for your thoughts and Have a great day.

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}


5.) 24 Jun 2021 14:25:29
Monkeymad, if he decides that arsenal are his choice looking at the two clubs then you’d have to question his decision making👍.


6.) 24 Jun 2021 16:15:27
Arsenal or Liverpool? Depends if he wants to stand a chance of winning trophies any time soon.


7.) 24 Jun 2021 16:39:19
Cheers.


8.) 24 Jun 2021 18:01:22
Ed's are saying Biss is the number one target, ahead of FN, who, if we had really wanted, would have surely been bid for before the expiry of the 35m release clause. but Biss wants to follow his heart as he is a gooner. fair play to him for being true to his colours, no one can deny a sports player their dream club if that's what they want. but if this is the case, who TF are we going to buy? Is it going to be another left field, off radar swoop a la Fab?


9.) 25 Jun 2021 10:34:10
Equally though, he can be persuaded that childhood dreams of playing for Arsenal don’t put medals on the table anymore and he playing for Klopp in a champions league team will get him success.


10.) 25 Jun 2021 11:07:39
I don’t get where arsenal are getting this money from? They had to rely on future payments to pay for Pepe and they won’t be getting in the champions league for at least the next five years so where is the money coming from? Then after the supposed lending from future income they spent 50 mil on partey and 30 on Gabriel and had net spending of 65 million last summer? . They are buying white for 50 mil and then will buy at least a cente mid for 40? I don’t get where they suddenly have all this money after two years ago they lent on “future income” to buy Pepe when surely none of that income came in as they have been mid table ever since.


 

 

30 Dec 2020 10:58:12
Morning, looking at players to come in who i think could do a job, Bissouma, guy is a beast, Mendy and Barnes from Leicester, Podence from Wolves, think he has more potential for us than Traore, Saka from Arsenal, McGinn and Grealish are getting the plaudits at Villa but Luiz is no slouch in the midddle to, have we looked at any of these, sometimes trying to see these guys with better players around them is better than having a big name from another country, we don't need another Keita, players who know the league and maybe just need a higher level of player around them to reach their potential.

LancasterRed

{Ed025's Note - all them you mention are pie in the sky lancaster, there is very little money in the pot at liverpool mate and unless 1 or 2 big names leave there wont be much coming in im afraid..


1.) 30 Dec 2020 11:28:44
Ed025
With Salah seemingly pushing, was thinking of the money he would generate mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats a big IF at the moment lancaster, the money liverpool would want would be too much for any club in this financial climate mate..


2.) 30 Dec 2020 11:48:37
Thanks Ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..


 

 

01 Jul 2019 15:35:48
Heard a rumour Mbappe interest is there but the stumbling block is wages, Liverpool have asked Nike to pay towards this as part of the nearing kit deal.

LancasterRed

1.) 01 Jul 2019 15:55:14
Find that very hard to believe Lancaster but boss rumour! Love ones like that ????????.

{Ed002's Note - It is utter nonsense. It should never have been posted.}


2.) 01 Jul 2019 16:18:11
I know Ed002 but it cheered me up on a miserable Monday.


3.) 01 Jul 2019 17:01:01
May as well link us to Messi or Ronaldo as well. Utter nonsense. I seem to remember LancasterRed linking us to Eriksen a couple of weeks back. Must be fun plucking random names out of thin air.


4.) 01 Jul 2019 18:32:02
If you throw enough darts blindfolded one will hit the board.


5.) 01 Jul 2019 16:59:16
Ah Ed mate. Let them through, while it is utter nonsense there's no harm to it.

{Ed002's Note - It clutters up the transfer page with rubbish and stops any relevant posts.}


6.) 01 Jul 2019 18:28:59
Hi Ed002

Utter nonsense is most definitely the best description in terms of the Mbappe rumour, it started with the LeBron James / Mbappe friends and Nike connection, Liverpool potential sponsorship deal with Nike and the conspiracy theorists had it all figured out, but it was a nice dream though, why did you have to ruin it so quickly? Ha Ha.


7.) 01 Jul 2019 22:36:21
I herd hansen sings about mbappe all the time.


8.) 02 Jul 2019 08:03:29
Put up the Eriksen rumour on here before anyone then boom a few days later it starts gathering speed, thought this was a rumours page? I could read a paper and post half the stuff up but never put an article up that's been in a rag, original rumours which have legs, it will come out then you can all jump off your little high horses, Morning.


9.) 02 Jul 2019 09:21:38
Don't forget he took a picture with Sturridge and he follows Stevie G on Instagram. he's practically a Liverpool player already.


10.) 02 Jul 2019 14:19:41
Mbappe is not needed. And that tells you everything about our front three.


11.) 02 Jul 2019 16:36:27
I thought the two hundred million transfer fee would be more of a stumbling block.


12.) 03 Jul 2019 15:56:59
Theres me thinking its a rumour page too!

21 Jul 2021 08:03:07
So £18 mill coming from Grujic and Ani sales coming in, surely that plus Phillips is enough to secure Bissoumma now then?

LancasterRed

1.) 21 Jul 2021 08:12:21
Impressive obsession!


2.) 21 Jul 2021 08:15:46
Don't forget Konate and payments for Jota (and possibly others) . Ed002 has said Bissouma maybe out of reach financially for Liverpool. We'll need more outgoings before we can go for Bissouma.


3.) 21 Jul 2021 10:05:08
Why would Liverpool pay the Jota payment? They have already paid a premium for staggered payments, so they might as well stick to the plan, unless they could get a reduction?


4.) 21 Jul 2021 10:03:18
OP, if only life was as easy as you just explained.


5.) 21 Jul 2021 10:28:57
Irish Rover, I believe (and again, in basing this entirely on football manager) that Liverpool could offer to buy out a further-on-down-the-road payment at a slightly reduced rate, but we shouldn't forget that there will no doubt be a Jota payment due to wolves this window anyway.


6.) 21 Jul 2021 12:49:27
td, So we wait and wait for players hoping other sides don't take our first choices, because they are little expensive, then someone else picks them up and we get the cheaper option, much to the joy of our owners.


7.) 21 Jul 2021 13:01:55
I am not saying it's the right approach. All I am saying is it looks like we will need to sell more before we can buy. I would also prefer to sign Bissouma right now.

Irish, I meant we went for staggered payments, some of that payment will happen in this window, right?


 

 

07 Jul 2021 08:25:21
Morning,
Transfers are the obvious hot topic but any news on the sale of the club? Or still wishful thinking on my part?

LancasterRed

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 07 Jul 2021 11:38:45
OP, do you have any owners in mid who can buy us?


2.) 07 Jul 2021 11:49:23
I think if we all checked out pockets, like yesterday's whip round for our transfer kitty, we could probably make a collective offer to FSG that they won't be able to refuse.


3.) 07 Jul 2021 11:56:18
Spot on, Zed. Still waiting tho.


4.) 07 Jul 2021 14:21:21
I agree zed. 5 million of us put in 1000 euro for 1 vote. that's 5 billion. We buy the club and plenty left over for transfers.

Klopp gets 1 million votes as manager.

Every decision is voted on fairly.

So that's 4,152,678 votes for Salah starting right wing this week. Motion is passed. Sorry klopp. Now to the forward position.

With push I think we could do it and get a team in every week.


5.) 07 Jul 2021 15:11:32
To be fair to FSG they have given us Klopp plus the 2 trophies and even last year bought 3 players. Not the best window be I think Klopp got most of what he wanted. We need to keep an open mind the window has only just opened. Let’s go for them at the end of the window not now.


6.) 07 Jul 2021 15:12:06
Davey that’s a hell of a suggestion to form a club outright. Or even a franchise in a new super league of sorts. I reckon worldwide you could definitely recruit 20 or 30 million people to stick a grand in to own part of a football team in a glamorous global league.

I’m amazed JP Morgan et al haven’t just done that instead of the ESL in the first place.


7.) 07 Jul 2021 17:12:40
The only real problem I see is that the owners box would be absolutely jointed.

Otherwise it's a completely bullet proof plan.


8.) 07 Jul 2021 18:54:13
Congratulations Davey, you've just invented the plc.


9.) 07 Jul 2021 19:46:13
Great post, Mark. Just one thing. Klopp gave us 4 trophies, not 2. Apart from that, you are spot on.


 

 

14 May 2021 12:40:57
I'm in no way saying he is on his level, or near it at a consistent level (yet) but Philips reminds me of a young Tony Adams, i just hope we aren't made to cash in on him just to get some spends, as he should be part of our defense for a while yet, don't see why we would make Kabaks signing permanent when money is always tight for us.

LancasterRed

1.) 14 May 2021 13:12:28
What i will say is that in my opinion Philips has more ability than Carragher ever had. Although Philips did stick that OG away Carragher esq 😆😆. let's hope he doesn't break THAT record.


2.) 14 May 2021 13:12:48
Lancaster agree mate I wouldn’t spend 20 mill on Kabak over Phillips and that’s nothing against how Kabak has done it’s more to do with how Phillips has. Klopp is supposedly a big fan of Konate so if he comes in it’s a case of whether Phillips is happy to go back to 4th or 5th choice because that’s where I think he will be and I honestly believe Klopp picks a fully fit Vvd, Gomez and Matip ahead of him.


3.) 14 May 2021 14:01:44
Cmon, let’s have some perspective here.
We’re talking about a replacement CB.
What’s the barometer to measure against - my view is it should be Van Dijk, and it’s both painful and nervous watching Phillips compared to the main man?
Even at 3-1 up I was a nervous wreck last night and I don’t want to permanently go back to that situation.
When VVD and Gomez / Matip were together I got that security that we weren’t getting beaten.
That’s the bar, for me.
I’ve got no problem if Phillips is retained but let’s not lionise the player quite yet?
He’s behind VVD, Gomez, a fit Matip, and a first team CB signing.


4.) 14 May 2021 14:14:57
Season would have been completely different imo if Klopp has trusted Phillips earlier.
I would 100% keep him over spending money on Kabak. As well as being a great 3/ 4th choice, he would be an excellent option to come off the bench in the last 10 mins against teams who are pumping the ball in the box and we are under pressure.


5.) 14 May 2021 15:08:35
If someone had told you at the start of the season our number 1 defender Wouldn’t be VVD, gomez or matip it would be Phillips. It’s not his fault the others got injured but by god he has stepped up to the plate and given everything. Well done lad I hope you stay with us.

{Ed014's Note - agree mate he’s done himself proud


6.) 14 May 2021 15:16:40
I feel like Phillips knows his limitations much better than Kabak and is also more mature. In order for Kabak to improve he would have to get games, which he won’t next season. He is very raw as it stands and i don’t see the need to spend £18 million on a 4th choice centre back. There is also the home grown quota to consider.


7.) 14 May 2021 15:20:12
Phillips is an absolute warrior.

Id love nothing more than to see him get into the England squad for the euros.

Do Tyrone Mings, Conor Coady or Michael Keane really deserve to be in ahead of him?


8.) 14 May 2021 15:40:26
Juicer, are you thinking about Williams? Never get nervous with Philips at the back, its good to know that your CB will have no worries about putting himself in front of any ball put into the box, it would be very interesting to see him alongside VVD or Gomez, even a back 3 with them 2 would be a solid option, i certainly think he offers more than Mings at Villa who is massively over rated whereas Philips is massively under rated imo.


9.) 14 May 2021 16:13:48
He has done himself proud, I agree with that.
But that was from an expectation of zero.
We finally won the league after 30 years of trying (and so many old-style, slow CBs) with a progressive, high line / high risk style of football with fast, ball-playing central defenders that no one could live with and now everyone wants to go back?
I can’t believe it, only in England surely?
The Germans used to put their best players at the back and I have absolutely loved watching the previous two seasons prior to this.
Even Shankly and Paisley ditched the old style CBs in 1973.


 

 

06 May 2021 09:37:49
It seems the whole country wants to punish the "big" 6 for their attempts to get the ESL going, no point docking points, as this punishes players and managers who wanted no part of it, can't play behind closed doors as this punishes the fans, who also wanted no part of it, the best way for me is too play 5 matches with fans getting in for free, hit in the pocket, still don't have any time for pundits and ex players mouthing off, as they aren't interested in introducing caps, still wanting to fleece the fans, games gone from the fans and it won't ever come back.

LancasterRed

1.) 06 May 2021 16:33:41
The game went away from the fans a couple of decades ago. No point crying over it now, since the game has grown and truly gone global. It's just the local fans who don't have much of a say anymore.

I really do think that this process will continue. One of the proposals will get accepted with fan representatives nodding their heads to it at some point. So then what's the point of punishing people now, when most see the inevitability of all this, in the near future?


2.) 06 May 2021 16:54:03
The game is only gone from the fans when the fans stop fighting for it. You may have given up on it, I haven't.

As always, you assume too much. I'm not in your shoes, Einstein. I gave up on absolutely nothing, it's actually been fantastic for me. I get to see every single game now, having always lived outside of the UK. It's brought me so much closer to the team too. I recognize the rights of the local fans, of course and support them. Every team should have strong roots and a base to operate out from. But no team is an island, and a global presence and support does nothing but add talent and money to the team's coffers. Organic growth.

Why are on earth are you talking to me about global and local fans? Where did I ever make that distinction?
You said 'The game went away from the fans a couple of decades ago. ', that seems pretty clear to me.

The game has gone from the fans, the money is ridiculous in the game, the players and their agents don't want capping to come in, TV stations with their god awful pundits who can barely talk, like Morrison, Cole, Smith, Jenas and Keown are making subscriptions go up and up, i don't want to listen to that rubbish, but i have to if i want to see my team or the rest of the league, VAR has taken the Passion from the game, players don't celebrate because they are worried about some jerk in a caravan getting his ruler out and jacking off over trying to get the perfect line, football will always evolve, it has too but the people in that bubble want to keep it that, a bubble for the rich to get richer, its the same in all walks of life, accepting it is the hardest part, i have accepted that the games been ruined and null of all passion, the biggest and probably only hope is the return of fans in the stadium reignites the feeling.

A couple of decades ago, there were not the international broadcasting deals we have today. Only high profile games were being seen outside of the UK (and just up to Europe) . Therefore fans of the English game were mostly concentrated in the UK. Your local fans. Then digital progress came along, with international broadcasting deals and rights and the English game spread far beyond the UK and developed a global international following. The global fans. Today the global fans far outnumber the local fans. It's my view that it is the local fans who want a say in how their club is run, whereas I don't believe the fan living and watching in Tokyo, Harare or Lima cares as much, as long as he gets to see his favorite team play. The "spending power" or influence of the local fan has consequently been reduced (when comparing to the past) . Lots of subtleties there, but that's what I was talking about.

You can argue that the protest at the ManU game shows the amount of influence the local fans still have. I would say it's still greatly reduced. Decades ago team owners and management would have factored in fan reactions well before trying to jump ship. We just saw last week, that 6 teams did not care as much to have factored any local fan reactions into their thinking process.

I don't live in Liverpool, I don't even live in the UK.
I think fans should have a say in how their club is run.

Ed's, So are we looking at a big player sale now this summer with FSG saying, "sorry were skint we needed a super league", or we looking at, "were sorry, here's Mbappe"?

OP, that was funny.


2.) 21 Apr 2021 11:11:14
They might sell big players now to pay for others wages and trainings ground facilities etc!
Fans may riot about the now we’ve now money!


3.) 21 Apr 2021 11:48:08
Who would they sell the big players to?
Apparently all the big clubs are skint.

Ed 002 don't leave me, I have been in love with you since july 2006 and I had loved Ed 001 from June 2006.

1985, all the clubs are skint and in debt, agents and players need the focus switching on them now.

Spot on hailstones, don't listen the negative reply, it's these blind fans that are keeping FSG sat comfortably with no pressure to sell to someone who wants us to compete season after season.

Origi can clearly cover that though in FSG eyes, no problem.

Can you confirm if we have held talks with anyone this week with a view for deal? Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure there would have been approaches from agents trying to move players on to Liverpool and talks over Liverpool looking to move players on.}

We really would benefit from a world class CF, Vardy of 2/ 3 years ago would be top scorer in the league by a fair few with us, don't be fooled to think we don't need new additions, not only does it lift fans, it lifts players too.

Thanks ED, still nothing regarding a sale of the club either? Or a magic investor that wants to focus on the team and not what they can build to sell for huge profit later on, when we have been used enough?

{Ed002's Note - No, nothing is happening.}

Glad to see a response without the blinkers on, hugely over rated, seems very bitter now and picking up a huge wage at a club that deserves to be lumbered with an average player on a obscene wage, seem a good match.

Too true Ed001, embarrassing player, does 2 moves a game of quality then hides, very poor effort from a guy who thinks he doesn't need to put the effort in now he has made a move to a top league and club.

Problem is, if we don't sell Salah, and he runs down his contract, we won't have the money to replace him.

It's going to cost me and 2 kids £300 to get to a match this season, i'm going to pay it but it's the hardest ground to get tickets for by a mile.
