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.}

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.}

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.}

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.}

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.}

Maybe we need a hairstyle coach? Some of our players could use the guidance.


2.) 05 Jul 2020 13:54:53
I'd prefer if it was red with PL Champs on the sides but ah well 😊.

Quite surprised by Neil Critchley's departure but I suppose an actual managerial position was going to beckon at some point. Good luck to him at Blackpool.

Reynard

1.) 02 Mar 2020 11:12:35
Be interesting to see how many youngsters may get a loan there in the summer. But best of luck to Crtichley.


2.) 02 Mar 2020 12:00:48
Thanks and good luck to him.

Today I'm sure many of us (old enough) are remembering the huge loss that Manchester United went through. We were one of the teams that offered Man Utd players after the horrendous Munich Air Disaster. may they Rest In Peace #FlowersOfManchester #YNWA.

Reynard

{Ed047's Note - just heard the moving tribute from the various players and managers. I second your thoughts fella.


1.) 06 Feb 2020 09:31:19
Well said mate.


2.) 06 Feb 2020 12:58:14
Great Post Reynard. RIP the Busby babes.

Rivalry becomes utterly irrelevant in these situations. RIP Busby Babes YNWA.

Ed002 - if you're about and willing (and permit this to be asked here) can I ask your views on Red Bull and the ownership of multiple clubs that effectively could compete against one another.

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - As far as I know they only own four clubs: RBL, Red Bull Salzburg, Red Bull Brasil, and New York Red Bulls - so only RBL and salzburg could potentially meet in competition. A couple of years ago they were both entered in to the same European competition but Red Bull changed the corporate structure rather than put UEFA on the spot and come up with a ruling. That meant that the clubs are shown to be sufficiently separate entities for it not to be an issue. As for the orgainsation, what they did with RBL was pretty amazing, and they have put in place a higher level structure to assist all of the sides which differs from other multi-club owning businesses - most notably The City Football Group who own or part own Manchester City, New York City Yokohama Marinos, Girona, Sichuan Jiuniu, Atletico Torque, Mebourne City and are working on a couple of other. Eventually you will see Europe give way completely to a structure that could see more multiple-club ownership, training clubs from lower leagues and potentially franchises.}


1.) 01 Oct 2019 11:39:53
Thank you Ed002 mate, as enlightening as ever. I was actually wondering why more club ownerships and big brands hadn't followed suit, it seems to be a far more sensible route to develop players and achieve advertising.

By the way, they own the second division Austrian team FC Liefering in addition to those you named and are allegedly looking at another European club.

Thanks again.

Thank you to the Everton fans who rather wonderfully displayed the 'Two Clubs One City' banner at Hillsborough last night. Very classy move!

Hadn’t seen that, absolutely outstanding. Nice one blue boys.

Unless I'm mistaken, winning the league has immediately cost us more than £12.5m in cascading payments to clubs and players we have bought into the club. I imagine Grujic, Harry Wilson, Lovren and Shaq must be moved on before DC would be a viable option for us. With Sepp van den Berg and Rhys Williams, a couple of years from first-team football, DC would make sense but as Ed002 has pointed out players will have to be moved on first.

Neco Williams - good for 25 minutes then had a dodgy 20 minutes and was taken off at half-time so he wouldn't receive a second yellow and be sent off on his full debut for the club. He needs to learn to tackle with his less dominant foot and we'll have another astonishing full-back on our hands.

Henderson was as good as always, a total stalwart but Ox seemed slightly off his normal game (might need another game to get back to normal) . Keita was very good early on and had a good overall game. Fab made a difference when he came on.

Sadio made a big difference when he came on. his close control and general ability just cause teams to back off and consequently give us chances we wouldn't otherwise get. I'm going to keep Bobby out of it because I see things through Bob-tinted glasses. so to me, he's always brilliant. The notion of selling Mo is as crazy as you think it is. He was the true standout performance only let down by not getting what seemed an absolute sitter for his hattrick.

On an honest note, Lamptey had a good game for them and looks a handful. and if not for the early part of the game things were very even.

I think you mean Martin Tyler, the commentator on Sky Sports. That dude is on a loser whatever he does. didn't he get criticised for over celebrating Firmino's goal back in January?
