Question for the eds. Reports surfacing or resurfacing of some potential investment and linking up on some way shape or form with toulouse. Not the Billy bean guy but someone else that wants to invest in European clubs. Apparently the deal could be done in a couple months. Bullsssst or real deal?

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - It is the samething without Billy Beane and all of his money. Redbird is the remnants of the Redball investment company that Gerry Cardinale and Billy Beane (a self-confessed Liverpool supporter who owns much of the Oakland As and is the "moneyball" guru) set up last year to buy 20% of FSG (not of Liverpool per se, but of all FSC assets - so part of Liverpool, the Red Sox, the racing business etc.). Whilst they had raised circa £400M through a public offering they could not raise the further £700M required to make that happen. At this point Billy Beane stepped away leaving Cardinale and his Redbird investment company that he used as a vehicle to buy Toulouse (and appoint Damien Comolli as their Chairman). Whilst FSG would like an investor to sell part of Liverpool to (particularly given their major financial issues at the moment), it is questionable whether any of the high-profile expensive EPL sides has the growth potential of other sides across Europe meaning that a merger-like solution would suit everyone best. Clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea will see growth potential flatten out whilst the chance of growth remains elsewhere - and remember these folks are investing other people's money - not their own. As such Cardinale has a plan to slowly merge with FSG rather than simply invest in it – his vision being creating another City Group or Red Bull type set up. Noteworthy is that the former Premier League chair Richard Scudamore joined the board of the now shelved Billy Beane RedBall Acquisition Corporation and he has been giving advice. At that point they were looking for investment funds to go beyond a merger and look to buy a decent club in mainland Europe or the lower end of the Premier League as well – that idea is shelved for now.}

Thanks Ed. Hope it goes through and at least some funds are made avaliable for improving the squad. Would this link up help us commercially? I'm sure the big clubs are always trying to find new ways to squeeze more money into the clubs.

{Ed002's Note - The money goes to the owners not the club.}


2.) 01 Mar 2021 10:08:47
What’s your thoughts on Damien Comolli ed002?
He always comes in for a lot of ridicule but seems to always land himself top jobs.

{Ed002's Note - You should go back and find what I said when Liverpool appointed him.}

Eds just a question regarding out if contract players this summer. Do you see any of them possibly coming to us? Seen donnarumma is out of contract and at 21 would surely be a no brainer.

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - Donnarumma won't be moving as a Free Agent and certainly not to Liverpool. I am not aware of any Free Agents Liverpool have been looking to agree a Pre-Contract with.}


1.) 03 Feb 2021 12:13:18
I have no idea if he is any good, but it won't make sense for a keeper who's played in the first team for 4 years to come and sit behind Alisson for the next 6 years.


2.) 03 Feb 2021 12:18:50
Struggling to see why this would be a no brainer, astronomical wages/ sign on fee. Massive issues off the field, crooked agent and would demand to be first choice.


3.) 03 Feb 2021 12:52:21
How is signing donnarumma a no brainer? We have Alisson who is twice the keeper. We are not going to pay 300k a week wages for a back up keeper to play against Hull and Crewe in the Carabao cup.


4.) 04 Feb 2021 13:56:14
Has he done a runner?


 

 

24 Jan 2021 12:35:32
Ed. Any chance if business being done with West ham for diop using origi in some way? Clutching at straws i know but west ham are looking for a striker.

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


1.) 24 Jan 2021 15:53:30
Origi? But you said West Ham were looking for a striker?

Sorry, couldn’t resist 😉.


2.) 24 Jan 2021 18:21:54
Nono they are looking to replace Haller right?


3.) 24 Jan 2021 22:57:10
Origi is a legend, them two goals V Barcelona will always be remembered,
but he seems to have been left behind,
Liverpool will want about 20 Mill for him, but, I would
take 12 Million,
money is soo tight,
we really need, to sell to buy .

{Ed0666's Note - I love Divvy for all sorts of reasons. Class personified and won us the CL. But I also concur with you Kop he’s not dating well and needs to move on to resurrect his career. He doesn’t deserve to only play a handful of games a year. He’s too good and we owe him more than that. 20 million? No chance.


 

 

22 Dec 2020 11:52:05
Read an article that depay could be avaliable for only 5mill. Surely if origi goes he would add some extra depth to our bench.

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have no interest in him and when he moves it will be to play.}


1.) 22 Dec 2020 13:20:45
i do love this whole idea that when one of our players who are rarely playing is set to leave we MUST replace him with someone.

If origi left we could very easily just absorb any of the potential minutes he would have had by existing players.

Depay is not going to come to liverpool to "add some extra depth to our bench" he will want to be a constant starter.


 

 

12 Dec 2019 18:03:04
Quick question ed. Is Karius still being permanently offloaded? If so what is the rough figure we are expecting? If those funds pay for milamino then we have still technically not spent.

RedScarface

{Ed001's Note - yes he is being sold but it doesn't work like that.}


1.) 12 Dec 2019 19:39:55
Hey Ed1, Seen the links to the Salzburg lad, milamino, but I was more impressed with the Korean lad, what’s think?

{Ed001's Note - Lee Hwang? No end product at all though with him. At least Minamino was just inconsistent.}


2.) 13 Dec 2019 03:05:01
Best to get Haaland if the rumours of 17.5m clause are true. these 2 would replace shaw in squad also cover for wings/ firmino.


3.) 13 Dec 2019 08:19:36
Halaand doesn't strike me as our 'type' of forward.


4.) 13 Dec 2019 13:25:16
He is good but just reminds me of a Shearer type of striker. I don't think he has the mobility to play in our forward line.

A very good player, but not suited to our type of play.


5.) 13 Dec 2019 15:15:46
Jaysus Walter, you must REALLY like Jurgen if you want his statue to have an erection!

Don't even see the point in tonight's game now tbh. What fight will there be for top 4 when uefa could easily just ban the breakaway clubs next season out of spite? This is real sad times for football.

RedScarface

1.) 19 Apr 2021 13:06:39
I am not watching the game. I am done. Greed of the few has ruined it for the many. Tottenham and Arsenal, with their heaving cabinets of European trophies, making a European Super League, when Ajax have not, emphasises how money driven it is.


2.) 19 Apr 2021 13:12:00
Out of spite? I’ve been a United fan for 30 years and I’m disgusted with everything the club now stands for under these money leaching owners. Football is dead these days. It’s just billionaire owners with no interest in football screwing hard working loyal fans for every penny they can. Is United got banned next season I’d have no issues whatsoever.


3.) 19 Apr 2021 13:27:44
Same with LFC stand-United. In my eyes LFC is no more if we breakaway.


4.) 19 Apr 2021 13:35:45
Absolutely shameful from England two biggest clubs. Sold their souls. These yank owners with no interest in the football just in their bank accounts make my p*as boil. German clubs with fans having part ownership have it right.


5.) 19 Apr 2021 15:47:25
Get what you’re saying Stand but you have to remember, your club sold itself to the devil long before the Glazers took over. You turned into a business after your first floatation back in 91 then on 96.
One good thing, your share price went up £250m once the announcement was made 🙄.


 

 

17 Apr 2021 13:36:56
Tammy Abraham? It seems a bit left field but tuchel doesn't seem interested in using him and the lad is young English can find the net with head and feet. Wonder if we could pull of a suprise swoop.

RedScarface

1.) 17 Apr 2021 13:48:10
I thought we are supposed to be signing first team quality players to improve the squad. The English Origi is not going to fix our problems.


2.) 17 Apr 2021 13:59:12
He is better than origi and has more goals than Bobby. Not saying he fixes our problems but on form this season I'd prefer him over both Bobby and origi. and klopp could improve him leaps and bounds.


3.) 17 Apr 2021 14:00:11
Much better than Origi, don't think he'd be a bad shout if we're not going big on a centre forward. People looked down their noses at signing Sturridge back in the day.


4.) 17 Apr 2021 14:57:03
Not saying Abraham is a top striker but at least we'd have a forward that will get on the end of all the bloody crosses, plus he'd add to the English quota.
But could he press the way that's demanded in a Klopp team?

{Ed0666's Note - Is it April 1st???


5.) 17 Apr 2021 15:00:59
He's too tall. We need short and stout.


6.) 17 Apr 2021 15:17:51
Haha no 666 just thought the original post kind of had a point, even if Abraham certainly wouldn't be my choice, the Madrid game got embarrassing after a while with the amount of decent crosses going in that we're attacked.


7.) 17 Apr 2021 15:21:23
What’s he like at creating space and covering the full backs?


8.) 17 Apr 2021 16:13:25
The players we have now don’t press these days alwaysared.


9.) 17 Apr 2021 17:14:13
Not for me, okay-ish player but not nearly good enough for our 1st 11.

He can't even displace an ageing Giroud and Werner who has been so poor in front of the goal. He still has time on his side but I highly doubt he is going to make it at the highest level.


10.) 17 Apr 2021 17:23:10
Also, can we please stop talking about a plan b striker who will get at the end of crosses? Were Carroll and Benteke not enough proof that it doesn't work?

Players good with their feet, link play, work ethic will ALWAYS be what Klopp and co. will look at when they search for players in any position. A plan b striker will never fit in our system.


11.) 17 Apr 2021 18:06:56
Firmino and Mane scored 27 in the league last year BETWEEN them, and 13 this year yet no ones good enuf for us.


12.) 17 Apr 2021 18:11:22
Love all this "not for me" regarding players. Doesn't matter one iota what you want or don't want.

{Ed077's Note - I don't see any issues with people sharing their views on players in an online forum without malice or harmful comments.


13.) 17 Apr 2021 18:25:28
Does someone have to be a 6 foot 4 brute like Carroll to get on the end of crosses. Agueros been doing it for years and look at Jota recently. its about being willing to attack the area to get on the endof them.


14.) 17 Apr 2021 19:25:10
In fairness Ted, both Benteke and Carroll were both mid table donkeys, and we shouldn’t consider signing a player of that ilk, but there are some very good centre forwards out there who can both physically dominate centre backs and be mobile as well as having decent technique. And since we don’t have any creative outlet in midfield it makes some sense to have more options at the top end, given that both TAA and Robertson can ping a cross rather well.


15.) 18 Apr 2021 12:49:42
Tammy is not the answer. The End.


 

 

08 Apr 2021 20:59:30
Not lfc related but I hope it will be soon, I'm so glad to see clubs starting to boycott social media hopefully the bigger clubs will join and make it longer lasting. These companies will only react when money is affected.

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - There was a meeting between all but four PL club representatives today and it is something that they are planning on having a single voice over.


1.) 08 Apr 2021 21:04:32
Good to know. All this time planning seems a bit wasted though. Surely they all lock off together. I do wonder who the 4 clubs to not be involved are and the reason why

What are your thoughts ed?

{Ed002's Note - Not all clubs make all calls - don’t read anything in to it.}


2.) 08 Apr 2021 22:46:52
I would like to see a significant boycott, say a month at least and for the final month of the season. If you was to say such racist comments in a stadium you would be kicked out and not aloud back in pity social media cannot have a similar policy.

{Ed002's Note - The solution will need to be more complex than expecting folks to respond to a month without.}


3.) 09 Apr 2021 08:22:01
I wonder if a social media company that requires you to upload your details including something like a passport will come along and challenge the likes ok Twitter etc. It’s probably already out there I just haven’t heard of it😂.


4.) 09Apr 2021 08:26:31
Jordan Henderson has handed over control of all his social media accounts to Cybersmile.


 

 

29 Mar 2021 17:17:37
Evening eds. Wondering if you could explain how a medical procedure would go when transfers happen. Is it a case of checking current fitness ir is medical history factored in too for insurance purposes in the same way us normal people are medically checked before getting health insurance. Only reason I'm asking is that we seem to have a habit of buying players with questionable injury histories.

RedScarface

{Ed002's Note - Past history would be taken into account as well having a full examination.}

3.) 28 Feb 2021 21:11:52
Yes very sad news.


4.) 28 Feb 2021 21:33:17
Very sad. Brain tumour was the reason he had to step down from West Ham when he was doing really well in the 00s (I think, or was it 90s? ) . Sadly never went away and eventually it won. Very very sad.

I saw the red before the tackle and thought typical dodgy refereeing. Then I saw the challenge. That was a nasty tackle.

Ed. Any idea of how much the option is? I've seen somewhere its 80mill which is eye watering given that upemacano release clause is around 50mill.

{Ed047's Note - everywhere I’ve seen says £18 million

We should of destroyed this Madrid team. Klopps decision in 1st leg to play keita killed us and our inability to score at home when we were cutting them open is why we aren't playing tonight.
