Hi Ed002, any truth in the Ilaix Moriba bids including Liverpool and Arsenal or is it just his agent drumming up interest?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - There are no bids from Liverpool or Arsenal.}


1.) 17 Aug 2021 15:25:37
Thank you! Thought it made no sense. Great to have you confirm that. I hope you and yours are well.

{Ed002's Note - Fine thanks - and the best to you.}


2.) 17 Aug 2021 16:08:10
Ed you’re a gentleman and a scholar - thank you for all your input on this site. It always surprises me how and why you take the time out to share your insights, but it is genuinely much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


3.) 17 Aug 2021 19:56:27
I second that SG Red.


4.) 17 Aug 2021 20:41:42
Ed is it true his agent is offering him around but he wants £100k+ a week big wages for an 18 year old that has not played that much.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have spoken to one side about him and his agent is offering him around.}


5.) 17 Aug 2021 22:14:39
Ed002 From the out side looking in from all the reports he seems a bit big for his boots if he has as much potential as reports say he would be better of signing a deal at Barcelona and with the trouble they are in he will get his chance there faster than he will at most of the big sides.

{Ed002's Note - They are concerned about his attitude.}


7.) 17 Aug 2021 22:33:14
Ed002 Have to wonder what advice his getting seems like his to bothered about the money and it is not something players have to worry about as the top players are all going to be set for life. So just enjoy the football because that won’t last.

{Ed002's Note - Younger players want assurances and money now.}

Hi Eds, Are the rumours true that we have made contact with young Ngakia's agent? I know he would boost our 'homegrown' quotient and that he's available on a free transfer but it's left me a little surprised. if true.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. My notes say: Jeremy Ngakia (RB) Schalke want another loan for Jonjoe Kenny but that is not looking likely so have turned to out of contract Ngakia who wants guarantees of game time that he will likely not get in the Premier League.}

Thanks, for the reply, Ed002.enlightening as always.

Hi Ed002, if the season is "expunged" as may be the case (regardless of the hope to finish) what will happen with player contracts? It's one thing to extend a season but quite another to wipe it from records. In addition, will players be liable to pay back performance related bonuses? Thirdly, will clubs have to issue season tickets to the same fans at no cost given the fan paid for a season they effectively would not have seen yet? Thanks for any comments in advance mate.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - (1) If the season is subject to being made null and void, or a line drawn across, there is no impact on the contracts. If the season is played out the rules need to be changed to allow month on month or game on game extensions (already agreed). (2) No, that would not happen as the clubs still received income from those games. (3) No, they would need to adjust season ticket prices for next season if they want to - else some clubs will look to the fans not looking for a reduction and to suck up a circa £200-£300 loss. good questions.}


1.) 26 Mar 2020 23:41:32
Thanks for the answers. I'm having a difficult time just getting my head around all the variables and I'm sure the site will be alive with madness when the full picture of what'll happen emerges. I know some people are not going to be happy but quite honestly I've only been thinking about these things as momentary escapes from the dreadful reality we're all in. Stay safe mate.

{Ed002's Note - It is potentially an unjust deal for Liverpool under several of the options - the null and void being the worst of course. On the table remains the line across option that is better but puts Liverpool in the position of asking. And that still looks a tough call for me.}


2.) 27 Mar 2020 10:26:24
ed with fifa looking at stop movement of players after june 30th between clubs to try to finish the season what would be best all round. But as the days go on god knows what is going to happen what do you think would happen if this stayed around till Christmas time because everyday it seems worse. Only can hope that this slows down soon to cut this death toll from going through the roof.

{Ed002's Note - The answer is the same as I have repeatedly explained, everybody wants to play the seasons out and the rules would need to be changed to allow contracts to be extended on a month-by-month basis or game-by-game basis. However, if this cannot be done, eventually a decision will be made to draw a line across. That decision will certainly not be as late as Christmas.}


3.) 27 Mar 2020 11:56:14
Whatever happens Ed002 mate, someone is going to be disappointed. and I know many will not agree with me but I'd rather the season was expunged than any more deaths from this horrendous plague of a virus. My wife works at one of the very places modeling the infection patterns of sars cov 2 (they advise PHE and WHO) and this is just the first wave. a second wave is fully expected in October. and since they've been having meetings on zoom I've overheard ridiculous numbers talked about as casualties. As I said to all of you out there. STAY SAFE!

{Ed002's Note - You are right, some clubs and fans are certainly going to be disappointed. I am not aware of a suggestion of a second wave in October but assume there will be indicators in advance of it. I mentioned in response to another question that the 21 "elite" European sides are to have a WebEx on Monday to discuss the whole issue, and all have been asked to digest the Imperial College report that suggests "social distancing" (or even Wuhan style complete suppression) would be required for about 18 months until a vaccine or vaccines are widely available. I hope you, your wife and everybody else stay safe.}


4.) 27 Mar 2020 15:13:45
Sorry to leave and not reply. Sadly one of my wife's colleagues had dreadful news to pass on. Her Father and Uncle had passed away from covid-19 and her mother was critical in hospital. she's losing most of her family. They just had an informal panel and she let people know. after which they gave confirmation that a second wave is expected between September and October. By the way, there is a trial here in the UK (apparently) that is having success at this moment but they haven't even moved to human trials. things might get rushed but it still looks more than 8-12 months away. I'm just passing on tidbits without divulging anything that was private. Please ALL be kind to one another and follow social distancing and hygiene protocols. and don't forget to disinfect your keyboards every day!

Hi Ed002, what chance Talles Magno will be signed by us given that we'd still have enough time for him to eventually be considered a homegrown player?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Talles Magno (S/W) Vasco de Gama kiddie who has been subject to discussions with Lyon's Sporting Director Juninho and Real Madrid who want him to join and pair up with Reinier Jesus and Rodrygo to ease the transition. Lazio and Roma enquired after a price and were quoted €65M but it went no further than that. Benfica, Manchester City, Braga, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Bayern Munich were impressed with him enough at the U17 World Cup to continue to watch him at club level. I would suggest the chances of him moving to Europe would be influenced by compatriots at Real Madrid or the lure of Juninho at OL. I cannot assess the chances of a move to any of the other sides.


1.) 21 Feb 2020 12:07:25
Thanks for the reply, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


2.) 22 Feb 2020 10:26:21
Or the lure of learning from some of the best senior Brazilians in football right now, in Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson.


3.) 22 Feb 2020 21:30:32
i think the biggest issue if getting work permits for them, i can't imagine it would be the easiest for young Brazilians.

Hi Ed001 and Ed002,

Firstly, Merry Christmas to you and all the Eds that give their time to running the site. A site that has been the difference between madness and sanity for many of us, lol. I (and I'm sure everyone else) hope you have a fantastic Holiday Season.

Now, onto my question. Are we looking at Dejan Kulusevski?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Dejan Kulusevski (AM) has been watched by a number of sides including Inter (who have already approached Atalanta but don't want the player for 18 months) Arsenal, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester United and Firentina and no doubt others.}

Hi Ed001 and Ed002,

I was wondering what your take (& my fellow Reds) on FIFA's strange move and propagandising over a Biennial World Cup is. I don't know any fans that want this even though they say a majority of fans are in favour. In my opinion, the smaller footballing nations and perhaps those without strong domestic leagues want it but it would surely represent a nail in the coffin of FIFA's control. Players cannot keep playing such extensive competitive tournaments at the current rate let alone a more substantial one. What do you guys think?

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - surely it would increase their control and take it away from club football as the only way it could work would be if they did the same as cricket and took international players away from the club game?}


1.) 21 Sep 2021 10:29:11
FIFA seem to forget who pay the wages.

{Ed001's Note - they do make their own money and don't they cover wages while players are at the World Cup?}


2.) 21 Sep 2021 10:33:53
You might be right Ed001 mate but I think it would rush the introduction of an independent International league. The insurance they offer to teams is insufficient for player loss and unlike cricket, the owners of football clubs have a lot more financial clout. there will come a point where the primary employers of the players will say "This is too much! " At least that's what I think.

{Ed001's Note - if they were running a World Cup more often, which is their primary source of income, they would pay a lot more though. In essence that is what this is about - making more money.}


3.) 21 Sep 2021 19:09:28
How do you manage all the qualification matches, every two years, which are already a serious strain on club and league schedules, every four years?

There are serious "push and pulls" by both federations and the clubs in all kinds of directions. I don't see how the game can stay the same for long.


 

 

24 Aug 2021 15:01:35
As far as I know, Robbo has signed a new deal. In his words "There's no place I'd rather be! Love it to bits here, it's home. Thanks to everyone for the incredible support from day one until now. My focus is on working even harder so we can achieve more great memories together #YNWA" - We expect Hendo next followed by Mo. Fans can complain about no business but these contract renewals guarantee our pedigree for the next 4 - 5 years.

Reynard

1.) 24 Aug 2021 15:11:18
Yep, confirmed until 2026 by Paul Joyce.


2.) 24 Aug 2021 16:51:24

Good luck at Brighton Adam Lallana. He has agreed to a three-year deal with Brighton. Good move for him with regular play, back on the south coast.

Been a fantastic servant to liverpool imo. Good luck to him, its a great signing for Brighton, their fans will be buzzing over it. Quite right. Very exciting player when on form.

He's recently renewed his contract and commitment to Dortmund. I'd be baffled if they sold him next summer but stranger things have happened. That said, I didn't think he was a target for us at Liverpool.

As I said Ed002 mate. LFC have not spoken to anyone representing him Jorge Andrade (the sporting director) is pretending LFC have spoken to him about him. but they have watched him. And as I also tried to add earlier, the OP is referring to "jimmy" a nonsense rumour on Reddit. Thanks for being the fountain of knowledge you always are.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - I spoke with someone about this and can say that:
Angelo Gabriel (RW) 16 year old left footed right winger who is being illegally represented by an agent who has been making contact with many major European sides. Santos have said that Real Madrid have declared an interest with them but they have not heard from other clubs although numerous sides, including Liverpool and Manchester City, have been scouting him. Contracted until he is 19 with a termination clause of €60M which a club could look to pay in December 2022. He has "representation" so clubs need to tread very carefully before he turns 18. One for the future.}

The "alleged" player is Angelo Gabriel (16) who signed a pro-contract in December 2020 with Santos. Their sporting director has "suggested" Liverpool contacted him already over the player who has a €60m release clause. In reality, Andrade can only honestly say that Liverpool scouts have watched Santos play like many, many other scouts. I give the story 2 out of 10.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - He has been watched by plenty of scouts but Liverpool are not allowed to eith speak with his agent or sign a pre-contract agreement.}

I think it's fine to give Karius the plaudits for his own downfall but if I remember right, Alisson wasn't JK's first choice. Wasn't Jan Oblak his number one target? If Atlético hadn't put him out of our price range (£89m release clause) then we'd never have bought Ali.

It is commonplace on a shoulder for a dislocation to be recurrent but unlikely on an ankle.

It is possible he will have weakness with muscles and tendons around there (particularly peroneal, my wife tells me) and consequently have recurring ankle injuries.

After his surgery, the medical team will probably focus on strengthening the muscle in the ankle. HE has youth on his side, his body is still developing and it is likely he will completely mend given the right care.

Actually, given what happened at the Brazil v Argentina match with officers storming the pitch to arrest players from Argentina (playing in EPL) suggesting they falsified paperwork for entry, it should perhaps be the case that FIFA needs to look at how Brazil has behaved and makes Sean's question pertinent. It is not irrational to talk of the 14-day rule because THAT rule formed part of the case against the players when Brazilian authorities pursued Martinez, Romero, Buendia and Lo Celso. Brazil is clearly angry that their players weren't released and so their authorities got the game abandoned by storming the game five minutes in. WHY these matches were not played at neutral and safe venues baffles me. the USA would have made a lot of sense.

I've spoken to several young players as part of an academic study (you are right they are headstrong) many have been very bright indeed but they all felt that there wasn't enough in place to let them consider careers outside football. I have to hold my hands up and say they all play at lower level teams but it's still relevant. On the PFA, I don't know what they really do at all. Thanks for the reply as always mate.

Reynard

{Ed001's Note - the lower level teams are the ones that should really do the most. I only really know what is done at the top academy level, but that is a huge oversight what you are telling me. As for the PFA, if players speak to their PFA rep they can get help with courses and earning qualifications to start a new career.}
