Good day to you!

Kevin Palmer (reasonably respected Irish journalist) has published an article suggesting two things Ed2,

Firstly, Lfc are in discussion with Brighton regarding the sale of Yves Bissouma for a few of approximately £30million etc.

Secondly, Lfc will be looking to offload Naby Keita this summer.

I’m firstly just making you aware of this publication and secondly seeking your thoughts on whether Lfc will/ are seek to purchase Bissouma?

Regards

Niall.

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not aware of discussions but he is a player Liverpool are intereted in. (b) As I have explained. Naby Keita (CM) The player has been nothing but trouble since he first agreed the move and spent a final year at RBL. He has not adapted in England and has failed to perform consistently when given the chance. Liverpool need to cut their losses but it will be difficult to find a buyer at a reasonable price and not all countries would be willing to grant him a Work Permit. A loan to buy might be possible.}


1.) 30 Apr 2021 22:11:23
Bissouma is a must to replace gini but also we desperately need creativity and goals from midfield, curtis jones can help this but we need more, dare I say a Bruno fernandes type who I wanted an we should of got. Trent needs solid competition as does robbo all top 4 have this we don't. Its obvious we need a change up front an if Bobby an mane left I wudnt be surprised. All of the above is important plus a defender or 2 . I would say this is a rebuild an fxxk knows where the dosh is coming from .

{Ed0666's Note - Thiago says hello


2.) 30 Apr 2021 21:42:38
Ed002 what countries do you think would grant him a permit?
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to start trying to predict that but clubs will know.}


3.) 30 Apr 2021 22:35:27
What ed sell thiago? Or we haven't seen the best of him yet an he will provide the good old guile in midfield .

{Ed0666's Note - on the contrary mate I meant Thiago could provide the creative spark


4.) 01 May 2021 01:50:14
I trust klopp. this season's been a freak season.


5.) 01 May 2021 07:03:56
It been a freak season that don’t mean it won't happen again!


6.) 01 May 2021 10:23:59
He hasn't said that the club have been in discussions with Brighton regarding Bissouma. He says there's been talk within the club about him. Slight difference.


7.) 01 May 2021 13:41:37
Positive thinking Jay boy!


8.) 01 May 2021 14:22:01
I would b shocked if both Mane and Bobbie left this season. One may go but not both, IMO. As for creativity, Fernandez is not a no. 10 cos he loses the ball way too much to be considered one, IMO. And as for creativity in our team, I agree with Ed. Say hello to Thiago.


9.) 01 May 2021 18:23:20
How many assists and goals has Thiago got so far this season then?


10.) 01 May 2021 19:18:59
AMEN warmachine I have not seen anything from thiago to suggest he is the answer to our creative prayers he is a midfielder who breaks up play an keeps it ticking over .


11.) 01 May 2021 19:56:30
Thiago has been a big part of our problem this season. Another midfielder who offers little or nothing in the final third. We are desperate for an attacking midfielder who creates and Scores goals.


12.) 01 May 2021 22:54:38
Harvey Elliot could be that creative midfielder given the chance.


 

 

23 Sep 2020 14:49:24
Ed’s, any news/ interest regarding Harry Wilson transferring to Burnley?

Kevin Palmer (Irish journalist with the Irish independent) just alluded to Wilson being off to Burnley.

Can’t see any other transfer speculation regarding Wilson.

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - I answered this earlier.}


1.) 23 Sep 2020 21:01:33
Ed002 are Leeds still interested in him or have they never been interested thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - The other interested sides were put off by the asking price. Leeds weee one.}


2.) 24 Sep 2020 00:49:53
Guys please RTP. Negotiations ongoing. .


 

 

25 Oct 2018 16:40:07
I'm sure this has been covered previously, but just getting slightly concerned about Sadio Mane's contract negotiations. I'd hate to see him running down his contract. Are there any updates or indications that he may or may not sign?

Niall164

1.) 25 Oct 2018 19:16:18
He still has over 2.5 years left on his current contract.


2.) 25 Oct 2018 20:50:32
I can’t beleive people waste energy worrying about stuff like this. Our player contracts is something that genuinely never enters my head.


3.) 25 Oct 2018 23:20:37
players come and players go, he will be replaced should he leave and life will continue regardless.


4.) 25 Oct 2018 23:33:50
He's not even half way through the one he has now.


 

 

05 Jun 2018 21:05:42
Liverpool echo now reporting interest from Lfc in Moses Simon, apparently we have heavily scouted him. Personally I’ve never heard of him, any thoughts on this story or player Ed02?

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - Two years ag I wrote this: "Gent's Moses Simon has attracted the declared interest of PSV, Apolonia Fier, Spurs, Ajax, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and has apparently been watched by Viking, Liverpool, Reading, Midtjylland, Arsenal and probably others."}


1.) 05 Jun 2018 21:37:51
Is it something you expect to happen? Would he get into the first team or just an impact sub? As I say I know nothing about him, quality player or not?

Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - I am not one to rank players.}


2.) 05 Jun 2018 21:40:43
Ed02, He is another wide player like Malcom and is this any kind of indication that we have moved on from Dembele to other targets? I will take Malcom in a heart beat!

{Ed002's Note - What did I say about Dembele?}


3.) 05 Jun 2018 21:57:16
Well Macca said he is one of the player we are interested and you have said that the asking price is too high for any club to approach Barcelona. It’s clear we are looking at wide players then.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what I said. Perhaps it is best if I leave your posts for Macca.}


4.) 05 Jun 2018 21:57:34
Fair enough Ed02, I am trying to tap into your transfer knowledge and I know you aren’t giving out any information lately.

Thanks anyway

Regards.


5.) 05 Jun 2018 22:10:51
I remember ed002 mentioning Moses a while back I took a look at him on yt looks like he’s got some potential, id be happy with him and Wilson as backup/ rotation wide players next year if it means we can get Fekir and Allison in.


6.) 05 Jun 2018 22:36:19
I wish people would stop taking things macca says as gospel. Macca is there for us 3-4 days a year and isn’t as reliable as he used to be. The Eds are here every day with invaluable info on transfers and others going on most of us wouldn’t begin to think about let alone understand, and I can’t remember them being wrong on a thing.

Thanks Eds, here’s to you all.


7.) 05 Jun 2018 23:00:53
Red-JB, Macca like the eds thankfully give us information as best they know it. We need to accept that things change, deals fall through etc. I along with everyone else am sure. Are very grateful to macca and the Eds. I've noticed in last few weeks been some comments like macca said or he's already gave you the list and its boring now. Neither the Eds or macca called the Fabinho transfer so just shows that nobody knows it all. And will get info wrong or not get info at all on certain things.


8.) 05 Jun 2018 23:06:12
Sorry Red JB but as far as I am concerned Macca is the best source of information we have about transfers although It’s not a contest between Macca v The eds.
Sorry but ed2 seems upset with Macca for some reason and that’s frustrating if I’m honest.

{Ed002's Note - I am not upset with Macca, I am sick of the Liverpool fans who constantly abuse everything I say and tell me they are only interested in what Macca says. So you keep asking Macca questions and son’t read anything provided by the other Eds.}


9.) 05 Jun 2018 23:31:58
Not trying to turn this into an Eds vs Macca. We’re all grateful for the info that both are able to provide at the time of knowing. Just feel that some posters need to get out of the mindset of Macca being the be-all and end-all of transfer information.


10.) 05 Jun 2018 23:36:30
Thanks for the info Ed2. Do you know if we have spoke to Simon's club/ representatives? Or are we just continuing to scout him and the rest of the media world are just two years behind you ;)

{Ed002's Note - No idea, he is no more than someone previously considered so it would not be unreasonable for him to be looked at again.}


11.) 05 Jun 2018 23:43:53
I'm with Red JB on this, I appreciate Macca giving us info, I really appreciate it but his last post was simply predictions but so many people looked at it as that's who we were signing? I don't think he meant it in that way at all or maybe I am looking at it a different way who knows. Ed2 gave us info daily, info we know full well to be correct because he IS in the know. This has been proved time and time again.

In the past Macca has said things like 'X player is done'

That post last month was not one of them posts.

Sikaboy you say it's not a contest, you're correct, why some fans make it into a contest is what is frustrating, no wonder Ed2 get's pissed off but not at Macca, at people causing hassle for no reason. Why can't people just appreciate kind acts instead of making it into a competition?

{Ed002's Note - Don’t have a go at Macca about this, it is no more his fault than mine.}


12.) 05 Jun 2018 23:50:26
No I'm certainly not having a go at Macca Ed2 mate, that's the last thing I meant, I'm just saying I think many people took his post the wrong way. I appreciate Macca as much as I do you Eds.


13.) 05 Jun 2018 23:31:58
Not trying to turn this into an Eds vs Macca. We’re all grateful for the info that both are able to provide at the time of knowing. Just feel that some posters need to get out of the mindset of Macca being the be-all and end-all of transfer information.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea. He has been with the Nigeria squad but is injured.}


15.) 06 Jun 2018 04:34:05
I’ve been visiting this site for around 10 years since back when it was just transfer-rumours. And not to offend any of the others, but the most reliable has always been Ed001 and Ed002 (in no particular order), and then the rest, including Macca. I really wish folks would just stop taking any of them for granted, though. Whether they are right, or maybe occasionally something changes, appreciate that they have taken the time to offer up knowledge of theirs that you don’t have, and they aren’t charging you.


16.) 06 Jun 2018 05:53:44
From ED002 24 Dec 2015 19:12:57
Was a long post but this was in it.

Gent's Moses Simon has attracted the declared interest of PSV, Apolonia Fier, Spurs, Ajax, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and has apparently been watched by Viking, Liverpool, Reading, Midtjylland, Arsenal and probably others.


17.) 06 Jun 2018 06:32:44
Can everyone not just appreciate what we get. either from macca or any of the eds.
If it comes off then great. you can tell your friends down the pub.
Most transfers hit problems and none are 100% until the guy has the shirt on. Appreciate the onfo, because without this website most of us would be clueless and just sitting about scratching our balls waiting for the season to start.


18.) 06 Jun 2018 07:33:00
Its more impossible than ever to predict with 100% accuracy transfers in todays football.

Agents are at their work more than ever.

Any insight you get from someone a little more in the know than yourself is a bonus that should not be scoffed at and more importantly ridiculed if it does not happen.

Its a rumours site and a good 80% of information will ultimately end up being just that unless its a nugget that a player signing is imminent.

The information, insight on all things football, and general post discussions on this sight are second to none. let's try and keep it that way.

In terms of the eds, the hand that feeds you should never be bitten. The ground work they put in on all things football is awesome. Respect is definately well earned on that front.


19.) 06 Jun 2018 07:54:27
You guys need to chill, the eds and macca give us what they know and i appriciate that.

Why get on their backs? Its a forum made for peoples opinion. If you don't like what they have to say don't visit.

Thanks for the work all who participate respectfully.


20.) 06 Jun 2018 08:07:50
Such threads is the reason macca goes quiet and you all start asking the eds where he went. Both Macca and eds get things right and they also get others wrong. Non of them intends to give us inaccurate info, they only give us what they know. Wrong or right we should just appreciate there efforts without comparing who is who. Non of us pays them for this stuff.


21.) 06 Jun 2018 08:28:26
As nice as Macca's info is, he does only post like Every 3 months it seems. The eds are here day in day out providing information and then Macca posts and all of that info is just thrown out the window. The eds know already how much some of us appreciate what they do, but unfortunately there will always be a sub-section of us that will take them for granted. I understand why you have taken a step back ed2.


22.) 06 Jun 2018 10:27:18
Back to the original post before it gone swung 10 mile offtopic, i've seen this guy play twice and he's electric quick but he's very raw, knowhere near first team ready. Maybe a few sub apperances and some cup games while klopp turns him from moses to god.


23.) 06 Jun 2018 10:38:22
Ed002, I'm with Salah on this for sure. The fact of the matter is that the information that comes from you and Ed01 is more reliable than anyone's. I've stated this before but if information does not come from one of you two, I don't believe it. I certainly miss the information that you provided.


24.) 06 Jun 2018 11:15:53
Anyone who gives information does so out of the good of their own heart and not for any personal gratification.
I am very appreciative of it all. We could all do with recognising that rather than holding people to account.

As far as Ed002 is concerned he gives so much more than reliable transfer info. His posts have educated me and I dare say “the majority” about the finer, non-public parts of football. The financial structures, the administrative side of the game. He knows a lot more than mere transfer info and he knows a great deal more about football than this old seasonsed spectator.

More than this I appreciate ed002’s humour, brutal honesty and wit. 👍.

{Ed002's Note - You missed "good looks" Ron.}


25.) 06 Jun 2018 11:28:19
Don’t want the competition Ed002 😘.


26.) 06 Jun 2018 13:27:14
Couldn't have put it better myself Ron, I echo your sentiments.

The only reason I can possibly see for anyone getting annoyed about this (and I mean posters; it's fairly obvious why Macca and Ed002 would get annoyed about it! ) is if someone reads a rumour on here, rushes out and tells all his mates, puts bets on, gets a shirt with a name on the back printed on it, and then it doesn't come off and they look like an idiot. but to be honest, if that is what you do, you look like an idiot whether they sign or not.


27.) 06 Jun 2018 20:11:21
The information that both Macca and Ed02 provide on transfers is awesome. As we have learnt here, things can change very quickly regarding transfers. Fabinho was completely unexpected. Liverpool stepped in after Athletico Madrid dropped out. Neither Ed02 or Macca predicted that, which is perfectly understandable.

The problem is that while Ed02 provides info for us almost daily, Macca posts only a few times a year. Through no fault of his own some fans then treat Macca like the great messiah, who has returned. Hanging on his every word and then abusing Ed02 if he does not agree with Macca or simply has not heard the same info.

I'm on here every day looking for transfer info, but like most of us rational fans, I do not lose my temper if we don't sign the player I would like, for whatever reason. It's just a game.

All the best.


28.) 06 Jun 2018 22:18:42
I personally really appreciate all the transfer updates Ed002 and the others all provide. I don't think it's fair they suffer abuse when all they are trying to do is inform us fans.


 

 

17 May 2018 17:07:56
Hi Ed’s,

Just giving you the heads up, ex Liverpool player David Thompson has came out via the Daily Mirror newspaper stating ‘he’d heard we’d signed Yaya Toure on a free’ to replace The departing Can.

Personally don’t believe it, but what with this being a Rumours/ Banter site, thought it may be interesting.

Anyhows

Regards

Niall.

Niall164

1.) 17 May 2018 17:11:57
Don’t see how he’d work in the pressing we do.


2.) 17 May 2018 17:12:36
😂😂😁😁.


3.) 17 May 2018 17:33:30
The guy has zero stamina, you guys forgot the League Cup final against us he was a mess.


4.) 17 May 2018 17:37:55
Heard the very same rumour today off a quite credible source supposedly Klopp sees Yaya as an option for games against the lesser teams in which we tend the struggle he sees Yaya as a valuable asset to help break down those “buses” of defenses. I personally feel like he could be onto something as on a free transfer Yaya Toure brings a wealth of experience, a winning mentality and a quality goalscoring midfielder as we all know he banged in almost 20 on a few occasions for city. YNWA
Nats.


5.) 17 May 2018 17:51:30
With his leverage and strength, I reckon he'd be a dab hand with the iron, jordz.

Our kits will have razor sharp creases if Yaya was here pressing.

Would cost a (kendall) mint in cakes though.


6.) 17 May 2018 18:14:13
Can’t see it personally.


7.) 17 May 2018 18:31:16
The last aging, out of contract player we got from city didn't turn out too bad did he. Currently breaking records in the champions league. Kolo wasnt a bad squad player either.


8.) 17 May 2018 19:03:46
If his salary was affordable no I wouldn’t mind him a backup option, we need a plan B and he can hit a ball from distance something we’ve missed since Coutinho left.


9.) 17 May 2018 19:23:06
It’s official: The silly season has started.


10.) 17 May 2018 20:03:47
As much as I think Yaya can offer something in the premier league I don’t think that would be at Anfield, he just doesn’t fit Klopps style and has the potential to be a distraction that we really don’t need to take the risk on.


11.) 17 May 2018 20:07:47
Not sure how silly this is though, 1jj. It might not be factually accurate, but it is certainly feasible. Milner and Kolo both signed from City after their contracts ran down. Why wouldn't Yaya? Maybe Kolo has put in a good word for us?


12.) 17 May 2018 20:20:15
The bloke got the hump over a bit of birthday cake. He’s well past his prime.


13.) 17 May 2018 21:17:00
I would rather we went for out of contract Wilshire.


14.) 17 May 2018 21:26:03
Other side of merseyside more likely.


15.) 18 May 2018 04:45:45
I wouldn’t criticise a move for Yaya as a squad player if his wage demands are more realistic in his older age. He’s a professional that knows how to win and has ability in abundance. The birthday cake debacle is blown out of proportion. That was just the icing on the cake (if you’ll pardon the pun) for him in terms of City undervaluing him after his massive contributions in their successes.


16.) 18 May 2018 11:19:57
Not needed.
Waste of a squad place.


17.) 18 May 2018 12:10:53
How much are we getting for Salah?

Fekir and Dembele won't be coming in unless Salah is going out.

19 Mar 2021 22:30:06
Ed’s, I just went on the Real Madrid Rumours page hoping to read what they’re thoughts etc were on the recent draw, obviously, that wasn’t very productive. what I guess is your opinion now that the dust has settled on the draw?

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - They will have preferred an easier tie but at this stage know they will have to just on with it.}


1.) 20 Mar 2021 11:12:53
I'm not sure there is an easy tie this year although Porto will be missing some important players. Can't believe I'm saying this but Real Madrid isn't a bad draw for us.


2.) 20 Mar 2021 18:04:54
Real's a pretty decent draw. Would have been even more confident if Hendo was around for those games.


3.) 20 Mar 2021 21:53:33
Aren’t they behind Barcelona and Atletico in the table at the moment? Both of whom got knocked out of the CL convincingly?
Great European pedigree of course so you can’t take them lightly but they are not a team to be feared right now.


4.) 21 Mar 2021 08:57:10
Seems like, if we man-mark Benzema, they will get battered.


 

 

25 Sep 2020 21:20:22
Hi Ed’s, went over to the city page prior to asking this question.

Not much happening there. media are all speculating that Ruben Dias is possibly about to sign for City.

We all know City’s defensive wows were part of the reason they came second. how highly would you rate Dias?

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside my views there are sides who see Ruben Dias as the highest end of the new generation of CBs. That puts him in the “super nifty” class.}


1.) 26 Sep 2020 04:34:20
I think ed001 did a player profile on Ruben Dias a while ago. You can get to the general player profiles page through the "Links to our talk sites" tab.


2.) 26 Sep 2020 00:37:14
Can I ask what are your views of RD then eds2.

{Ed002's Note - THis is the Liverpool page.}


3.) 26 Sep 2020 09:20:37
Just been reading through a load of the old Player Profiles, Wiji, Suso, Ngoo, etc. Makes for entertaining reading if you have a spare 10 minutes.


 

 

19 Sep 2020 11:35:01
Ed02,

With all this talk about us signing Jota, I’ve read online loosely the structure of the payment, as in we’ll only pay roughly 10% in the first year, I’ve seen he’s relatively young.

My question being, why would Wolves sell one of their prized assets on such favorable terms? How highly did they rate him? And how would you rate him?

Regards

Niall.

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - Wolves FFP punishment means that they have to sell two of their higher valued players and were seeking €50M for Jota. Jorge Mendes was offering him around - but there are also significant agent fees to be paid.}


1.) 19 Sep 2020 12:41:47
Oh,
Wasn’t aware of FFP issues. thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - They have already been punished.}


2.) 19 Sep 2020 13:13:27
Thanks for the info, Ed02. I read as well somewhere that PSG have to sell up to 8 players to balance their books. FFP ain't no joke, man.

{Ed002's Note - They are trying very hard to move players on but are learning that clubs don't have the money to buy so they need to be realistic about priced. An example is Taiwo Awoniyi who was priced out of a permanent move and is going back to Germany (Union Berlin) on loan - they are awaiting international clearance.


 

 

05 Jul 2020 20:38:11
Ed’s this question has almost certainly been asked and answered, so apologies in advance.

What’s your thoughts on next season? And in particular who or where you see main challenges coming from?

The context of that question being Man City will strengthen, but Pep in last year of contract, possibly no champions league, possibly DeBryne leaving, United clearly going to strengthen and appear to be clicking with Bruno and Pogba playing together, Chelsea buying all upcoming ‘marquee’ players.

Not bothering adding Spurs or Arsenal.

Obviously Lfc will strengthen to some degree, but can we keep everyone st bay again?

Just interested in your take of next season.

Thanks in advance.

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United will all look to challenge your assessment of the other sides is a little off the mark.}


1.) 05 Jul 2020 20:45:53
Well I can’t see arsenal or spurs challenging. is that the what you are referring to?

Do you see them challenging?

{Ed002's Note - No. The assessment of the Manchester sides and Chelsea.}


2.) 05 Jul 2020 21:03:05
Could you expand on that point?

{Ed002's Note - Gaurdiola’s contract is of no relevance, they have no interest in selling de Bruyne, Pogba wants out if he can, Chelsea are hardly buying “marquee” players.}


3.) 05 Jul 2020 21:19:17
Ok, misunderstanding. thanks for the reply.

historically although not in every case, when a manager is in the last year of his contract, it has been noted that there has been a drop in players performance as they know a new manager is incoming.

With that in mind, do you think this will have an adverse effect on the mentality of the City Squad?

In regards to DeBryne he has previously stated he would have to reconsider his future, if City are it playing champions league.

With this in mind, could this effect his performance going forward?

In regards to Chelsea, my understanding was the Ajax forward and Timo Werner are highly regarded. is this not the case And obviously they are not finished yet.

Appreciate your views.

{Ed002's Note - The squad have no interest in the contract of the coach. They have no plans to sell De Bruyne. There is a big difference between “highly regarded” and “marquee” signings.}


4.) 05 Jul 2020 21:41:00
Oh ok Ed2 appreciate the reply.

So Pep staying or going would have no impact on the psychology of the squad going forward? It wouldn’t impact the squad at any stage?

In regards to the marquee signings, I guess what is a marquee signing? I thought Timo would be regarded as one, but what do I know.

Appreciate the replies ed2.

{Ed002's Note - No, coaches come and go. The squad don’t all up and leave with them - it happens all of the time. A “marquee” striker would be Icardi, Kane, Ronaldo, Mbappe, Lewandowski etc., but not a sub £50M striker who is unproven outside of Germany.}

Ed come on, I’m not trying to break your balls here, and of all the eds, I respect your opinion most. I also have a degree of intelligence so your comment ‘the squad don’t all up and leave with them’ is clearly an obvious statement to make.

It’s been commented on by numerous pundits/ professionals the impact of a manager in his last year of contract has on the competitiveness of a squad. Are you discounting this factor?

Regarding your assessment of Timo, and your description of him, we all know he was priced st that valuation because it was a clause in his contract, to the vast majority of fans he is underpriced etc.

Are you now describing a 36/ 37 Tonsldo who plays in a slow Italian league as a marquee signing?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what “pundits and professionals” have said about coaches in their last year of their contracts. Perhaps all of these folks might want to think about Heynckes (twice), Ancelotti and Guardiola at Bayern Munich; Enrique and Vilanova at Barcelona; Schuster at Real Madrid as far as I recall and I can think of plenty of others. So yes, if that is what “pundits and professionals” are saying, I discount it. The clause in Werner’s contract was irrelevant and not what Was paid. A different value was agreed on. Ronaldo would be a “marquee” signing - the league is of no consequence.}

Ed I appreciate your reply, I genuinely do, I hope I haven’t annoyed you!

I am a normal football fan as in I watch and listen to the various football professionals/ ex professionals etc, I don’t have access to agents or various different databases that you are privileged to have access to.

I therefore rely on your expertise in these matters hence the reason I posted.

I do however have to disagree with you regarding a number of points you made throughout this post. to me and I’m sure the vast majority of football observers across the planet will agree Pep in his last year of his contract will have a big impact on players.

A disgruntled DeBryne will have a big impact on team performances.

Timo Werner would he have a bigger impact on the premiership than the current Ronaldo, I think he would.

Anyway thanks for the chat.

As always freedom of speech is the basis of fan support.

{Ed002's Note - There is no point continuing this. Liverpool will be over the moon that Manchester City won’t be challenging. You are confusing “impact” and “marquee signings”.}

Ok ed2 we’ll agree ‘there’s no point continuing this’.

We’ll agree to disagree.

Thanks for the ‘banter’.

Niall I disagree. City will be highly motivated next year regardless of Pep's contract situation. They are extremely good and professional footballers. Now, if you were going down the line of Pep has worn out his welcome and his players are sick of him, I'd be more open to that point, but just to say that they will be impacted because of his contract, I don't think that has any bearing at all. I agree more with Ed001 about how Pep's antics wear thin after a few years. We'll see though. Good discussion though.

Ed’s, Ed002 any updates on Sadio Manes contract talks? Not going to bother ye guys with anything else.

Enjoy the game.

Regards

Niall.

{Ed002's Note - Sadio Mane has three years to run on his contract.}


1.) 21 Jun 2020 18:47:59
Oh, apologies, I read online an article that alluded to the fact that the Lfc hierarchy are sweating over whether or not Sadio will sign a new contract.

Apologies.

{Ed002's Note - It seems an odd thing to be concerned about with three years to run.}


2.) 21 Jun 2020 22:04:22
OP, it's all recycled rubbish from the media to generate clicks, man. it's been in the works for 18 months now with the media keep recycling the same crap to get fans wound up. Nothing to see here.

Ed’s not strictly Lfc related, I can post on City/ European pages if more appropriate.

I see David Silva beconing free agent this summer. speculation on social media he’ll return to Valencia etc.

My question being, would he be a player capable of still playing in premiership for a top 6 team?

Immense player, shame we didn’t get him over the line back when Rafa was manager.

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - I would mot expect him to tign for Liverpool.}

Thanks anyway

Is it something you expect to happen? Would he get into the first team or just an impact sub? As I say I know nothing about him, quality player or not?

Thanks for the reply.

How do you see this particular transfer working out Ed02?

Niall164

{Ed002's Note - It is not a "transfer" - clubs talk to egent all of the time. There is interest in Alisson from other sides as well - including Real Madrid.}

How about Djimi Traore and Bjorn Tore Kavarme! 2 Liverpool legends! And when you throw in Igor Biscan! Very defensive line up!

There’s a slightly poignant time that occurred in the Chelsea match that may be worth clarifying, as I may be wrong.

Anyhows the peno which secured the title for us against city was scored in the 96 minute, I think, you should clarify this before going ahead.

Sorry for annoying you again ed1, just in regards to the contract we signed with Nike, is the contract we signed looking like good business now, bearing in mind the impact of C.V. or should we have held out for more money and less percentages from kit sales?

Niall164

{Ed001's Note - we will still sell plenty of kits, especially as Prem champions, so business-wise it was good. The only real issue is the bad taste left in the mouth from the way we dealt with New Balance at the end to move over, but that is just one of those things that happens sometimes.}

Ed1 just in regards to point no.3 you made, surely with the planned expansion of the Anfield Road end this will bring in significant more revenue?

Is there many hospitality sweets planned for this end?

Niall164

{Ed001's Note - it is not as significant an amount as you seem to think, not when you factor in the cost of rebuilding. As for hospitality suites, there will always be a place found for as many as can be squeezed into modern Prem stadia as they are where the money comes from. You have to pay for the expansion, which will most likely be done through loans and repayments will swallow most of the money made until the loans are paid. It is a very long term factor, in the short term you have time without the seats, as well as having to pay for the rebuild.}
