Reports this morning that Saul to Barcelona has "broken down" we shall see.

Are the journos in the below statement reliable does anyone know?

Marco Timmer has told Voetbal International‘s EK Live show that Liverpool and Dortmund have approached Malen’s agent, Mino Raiola, over a possible deal.

Timmer explains that Malen and Dumfries “are allowed to talk to other clubs, ” and despite there being “nobody concrete yet” he adds that “there are negotiations going on. ”

Rik Elfrink of Eindhovens Dagblad has corroborated that Liverpool are “serious in the market” for Malen, with he and Timmer considered reliable sources when it comes to PSV.

“We have to wait for one of the clubs to go ahead with an offer to PSV, ” Elfrink explains, with talks seemingly only going through the player’s agent at this stage.

Good findings JKH. I have no idea on the reliability unfortunately. there's a few accounts on twitter who assess reliability that you could ask however.

The info also matches what Ed002 has said about Raiola meeting with Dortmund (although not sure about Liverpool) .


 

 

24 Jun 2021 14:59:19
Sky Sports Germany reporting Edwards has opened talks with Malen, perhaps this one has accelerated the eds have been saying there was interest for a while. Just a midfielder left after this one if true.

If you got this via the Echo, apparently they mistranslated it.


2.) 24 Jun 2021 15:33:15
I didn't as per the post its via Sky Sports Germany.


3.) 24 Jun 2021 15:48:44
After that a straight swap between Salah and Mbappe and we are all set for 5+ years .


4.) 24 Jun 2021 15:52:12
Yes but the Echo have a section where they get rumours from various different sources and today they took something from Sky Sports Germany re Malen which they mistranslated so was just saying it you got the story via that way.

Apparently he's close to a move to Dortmund regardless.


5.) 24 Jun 2021 17:40:54
Lol a straight swap for mbappe? Really? 😂.


6.) 24 Jun 2021 17:58:50
Mbappe has a year left, Salah two. Salah is arguably the more proven of the two considering he has played in 2 leagues that are better than the French league and done really well in both. Salah is at the prime age and clearly wants a big move . so why not?
And if Malen is going to BD and B rod is buying Daka, who is our top target for the forward line?


7.) 24 Jun 2021 18:36:10
Mbappe is never going to play for us. Ever. The same as Haaland, the same as Werner, the same as Havertz, the same as Sancho. I just hope we don’t bother going for the likes of Traore or Sarr.


8.) 24 Jun 2021 19:02:34
I agree. AT THE MOMENT, a transfer fee of each wouldn't be much in the difference.


9.) 24 Jun 2021 20:59:16
VVVV you are spot on! Not in a million years.


10.) 24 Jun 2021 21:36:24
No rufus still via Sky Sports Germany.


11.) 24 Jun 2021 22:23:28
Did you ever think Alisson would play here? Or Thiago? We are one of only a few teams in the world that can draw that kind of talent outside of their home countries. It takes an awful lot of money, sure, but anything is possible. Mbappe playing for Liverpool does not sound that crazy compared to the stuff we have all lived through the last two years!


12.) 24 Jun 2021 23:40:02
It does when you consider the wages he would be on. Does anyone acty believe we will pay a player over 600k a week. It would ruin the club.


13.) 25 Jun 2021 07:26:06
Its crazy though that even over a four year contract between fees and wages Kane will probably end up just as if not more expensive. I know who i'd rather have.


14.) 25 Jun 2021 07:38:49
Theres also the argument that signing Mbappe this summer would be a great business decision! What you'd sign him for this summer with just 12 months left on his contract would be dwarfed by what we would sell him for in a few years to madrid. Its long term planning i suppose but its a 100% certainty.


15.) 25 Jun 2021 08:07:31
Jadon, that's also the type of thinking that landed the club into debt in the first place. We aren't talking £50m spent to make a profit, over the course of his contract, you are talking hundreds of millions. Then there is the small matter of completely destabilising the team because the likes of Salah will see Mbappe on 600k and wonder why he isn't on that as well. Then what happens if it all goes to his head and he flops and we can't sell him, or he gets a career ending injury? Or will you step in at this point and foot the bill? People need to come back to earth.


16.) 25 Jun 2021 08:15:41
I get the ‘speculate to accumulate argument’ Jadon, but I just don’t see it happening.


17.) 25 Jun 2021 08:34:40
It's become de rigeur on here to say certain players/ class of player will never sign for us but I think Mbappe is not so far fetched. We got Ali, we got Thiago, we got Bobby back when no one thought we could. Virgil, although perhaps he's reached worldie status whilst with us.

Mbappe's clearly a fan of Klopp, I think there's some desire there to play for him. Why not on Merseyside? Thiago chose to come. He could reach that next level of his game. Virgil did.

Finances. All sorts of theories going about. Different time, different circumstances but Adidas were going to somehow play a part in Messi to Chelsea so it's not inconceivable. But okay, let's discount even that.

If he signs this 750k/ week extension then he will never come here, no. But if he were to leave on a free, then I don't see how it's not possible to negotiate directly with the player. Spread the cost of signing on fee, perhaps instead of spreading the cost of a transfer the wage becomes more tenable. It could cause dissent in the ranks with other players being unhappy at the disparity, but this is life in football. How many players at PSG would be on €750k/ week? If Messi had gone to Chelsea or City, it would have been the same situation. I don't see it as the obstacle that some might present.

I'm not saying how likely I think Mbappe joining us is, but I think it's not impossible.


18.) 25 Jun 2021 08:40:28
Calm yiurself stuie😆. im right though. And the "hundreds of millions"is a bit hyperbole. we'd probably cover his fee and his wages with what he'd instantly be worth once signed up long term. Fair enough your argument about Salah and co, but that's just the way it goes. Mbappe will be the best and most marketable player on the planet soon, im sure plenty of potential sponsors would be drawn to him being at the club. Look i know its unlikely, but if he is interested in a move here this is literally the only chance we'd ever have to sign the biggest face in football for the next few year.


19.) 25 Jun 2021 08:56:06
Robboz, I agree. If he signs the extension then no way. Otherwise I could see him with us for 3-5 years before moving to Madrid.


20.) 25 Jun 2021 11:03:53
Unfortunately Jadon, you can't just say 'but I'm right', not how it tends to work. Don't get me wrong, I would love Mbappe to sign but we have to be realistic. All this elayers listed, Thiago, Ali etc where nowhere near the Mbappe level when we signed and never will be. If Madrid or PSG sign anyone of out players bar Salah, they would never command over 500k a week. And the hundreds of millions is not far off, transfer fee 100m plus, wages 600k a week plus, bonuses added on top, spread over a 5 year deal. It would be financial suicide for the club to buy a player for that much money in the hope that Madrid will buy him for a profit. Say it out loud, it sounds even more ludicrous.


21.) 25 Jun 2021 12:13:27
It does if im right😆. How much a week do you think Harry Kane is going to be on at City stuie! Wont be a penny under 400k per week and that's the minimum.


22.) 25 Jun 2021 12:33:08
600k a week for one player would 100% ruin the club. That's 30M a year on top of the initial costs. Then everyone else in the squad wanting pay increases to keep the harmony. who knows how much that would cost.

Absolutely a non runner.

Who cares if City were to pay Kane 400k a week as well, you have just made that up and it's irrelevant in the discussion, you need to think about the Liverpool squads wages not how much Kane would cost in comparison.


23.) 25 Jun 2021 13:27:48
My point is that City aren't going to have the rest of the squad in looking for rises because Kane comes in on probably more than double than they're on. Just like the players at Barcelona accept Messi's and Real's used to have to accept Ronaldo's. Fair enough it'd be £30m odd a year but think of what he would be worth to the club financially, he will be THE biggest name in the biggest sport on the planet in a year or two. If we want to be at the very top table, long term, and there was ANY chance of getting this deal done we should be all over it.


24.) 25 Jun 2021 13:51:08
I hope you don't work in a bank Jadon haha! Firstly, City can afford £400k a week, we couldn't, that is the big difference, plus, you then have to account FFP, how would we get through that? Where's Ed002 when you need him/ her.


25.) 25 Jun 2021 13:57:41
How do City get through it? . last time i checked our revenue was on a par with theirs.

{Ed002's Note - It is pointless explaining.}


26.) 25 Jun 2021 18:46:54
This rumours site is turning into a delusional site with all this Mbappe nonsense. Bissouma and Malen will do for me. With them on board we'll take it to both Man City and PSG.


27.) 25 Jun 2021 18:57:37
Signing the likes of Mbappe, Haaland and Sancho does seem like a dream but to be honest, I never expected that we'd spend a world record fee to sign VVD and Alisson a few years back. I understand the stumbling block is the wages for these players and not because these players doesn't want to join us. Although its unlikely to happen, we've read rumors that Klopp did keep in touch with Mbappe and his family. If those rumors are legit, then there might be some possibility that a transfer might happen. otherwise why would Klopp bother to spend time on something that he will never get?


28.) 25 Jun 2021 19:29:55
@Jadon, Just to take in to account as well as that £30M a year of wages for Mbappe you would have another £100M a year of extra wages to keep others happy.

Maybe Salah would not expect to be on £600K a week to match Mbappe but he would want to double his £200K (or whatever he is on) to be a lot closer. That's an extra £10M a year for him. Mane would want an increase, VvD, Fabinho, Alisson, basically most or all of the team. Not +£10M each but it would all add up.

From a quick Google of Barcelona salaries as you are making out that others are happy to play for relatively ok salaries even though Messi's got an enormous salary. From salary sport: Griezmann £594k, Coutinho £406k, and 4 others higher than £200k per week being Busquets, Jordi Alba, Umtiti and Dembele. Braithwaite is even on £85k, I know signed in an emergency but still it shows the knock on impact throughout the squad.


29.) 25 Jun 2021 20:47:54
Ah just dare to dream will yis. baa hum-bug accountants everywhere! As one poster said Virgil"had the choice of the top 6 clubs and would never consider us" and"not a hope in hell these owners would pay over £60m for a goalkeeper"i know more than likely we'll end up with the normal rough diamond that Jurgen can polish but until he goes to Madrid i say its not impossible he ends up here.


30.) 25 Jun 2021 20:59:38
Apologies Jadon, didn't mean to spoil your dreams 🤣.


31.) 26 Jun 2021 00:51:38
No Sean. its not Blackpool or Lincoln we support. Its Lfc one of the biggest in the world in all kinds of ways yet most fans want to hide behind and feel comfortable with the net spend and"he'll never sign for us"argument as a ready made excuse to jystify when we fail. Have we not a manager in the top 2 or 3 in the world?, have we not a 1st eleven in the top 2 or 3 in d world? Why then would a top player not want to come here and improve himself?


32.) 26 Jun 2021 02:03:17
Klopp himself came out in the past and said for LFC this transfer would be impossible due to the finances. Need to come to the reality that we will not be signing mbappe, or maybe even malen or bissouma. But that's fine, in a few years we will have the polish messi to rip some teams a new one. 😆.

{Ed0666's Note - there’s more chance of Hancock snogging Pep Kloppo in front of a packed Anfield on the first home game of the season than there is Mbappe signing for Liverpool.


33.) 26 Jun 2021 10:02:24
@Jadon, it would financially ruin the club. I've explained why/ how already but you can't seem to grasp it.

Never for a second have I ever thought Mbappe would not want to play for us or for Klopp but his wages are so high it's not even slightly realistic.


34.) 26 Jun 2021 10:14:26
I grasp it Sean, thanks for explaining it to me. Your right we will never ever ever sign a top player. Thank God we have the Polish Messi, Gordon, Elliott and Nat Phillips there to build our next great team around.


35.) 26 Jun 2021 17:21:47
Fact is that we don’t have owners who are capable or interested in bringing in the likes of Mbaple or Haaland. I’d hope at least they consider players at the next level down, like Isak for example.


36.) 26 Jun 2021 18:05:00
Wow Jaden is like a young Harry from about 10 years ago.


37.) 26 Jun 2021 19:21:14
No, Jaden was just very bored lastnite Pickle😉.

Divock has been made available for 20 million euros.

2.) 04 Jun 2021 22:39:00
Ffs. We’re not going to sell are we?


3.) 05 Jun 2021 03:04:13
Has Edwards not proven to you that he knows what he’s doing by now? Give him some credit. You want the club to just give players away? Jeez would you if it were your money?


4.) 05 Jun 2021 06:42:45
I love Divock as much as any other player in the team, but let’s be honest he never fit the style of play and after last season it would be unfair to not let him leave. He’s not the best overall player but can take on a man and knows where the goal is and deserves to be in a team where he is starting regularly or at the very least is regularly rotated. He barely came of the bench for us last season.

{Ed0666's Note - I agree mate he’s too much of a ledge to be rotting on the bench for us. I hope he gets a move to a top club and bangs in goals for fun. Classy and graceful guy love him to bits!


5.) 05 Jun 2021 07:51:39
Divock is a funny one. He's had enough moments at the very top of the game to know that somewhere in that man there is a useful, powerful forward who drinks pressure like a fine wine. But you contrast that with his average performance which is so casual he might as well be sleeping on the pitch and the question of 'how to price him' becomes a really difficult one. Personally I think that his poor showing over the past 2 years have basically been the result of him realising there is nothing he can do to get regular minutes on this team (after so many big goals remaining a marginal player, however justified, can't have felt brilliant) and that in a team where he will play every game if he does well he will be well worth £20m compared to some others that have moved for similar money recently.

{Ed001's Note - he is just too laid back and that stops him ever showing the aggressiveness you need to be a top player.}


6.) 05 Jun 2021 07:56:14
Big Div is a cult hero with some of us, and I don't begrudge him that at all; he delivered at crucial times and moments in the past. Won't be quickly forgotten. Just that times change and people have to move on.


7.) 05 Jun 2021 09:16:48
I wish him all the best. We won’t get £20m though.


8.) 05 Jun 2021 09:17:28
i think Div is the kinda guy that will be loved where he goes as he is so casual and easy going.
Unfortunately, he doesn't switch and brings his usual personality onto the pitch, which is way too unfocused and casual. There are other sportsmen who had similar personalities, but once in the game, they are switched on, focused and hungry for victory. Div seems to be missing that.

The story about how Div grabbed the ball and race to put it on the centre circle after scoring in the 95th min against Everton says it all - so light hearted, so casual, yet so unfocused and unaware.


9.) 05 Jun 2021 09:27:04
I know am not going to get any likes but origi isn’t good enough for Liverpool fc. Our forward players were absolutely knackered this season and out of form yet origi still couldn’t be trusted to take up the slack. Good luck in the future origi but I’d rather give one of the kids a chance. At least they will have the hunger to fight for a place.


10.) 05 Jun 2021 09:11:52
Form comes with games. a great servant, never moaned, a well liked figure and I wish him the best and echo sentiments above and hope he bags a hat full of goals wherever he ends up.


11.) 05 Jun 2021 11:00:18
I agree with Ed001. Big Origi never has shown that determination. He has the attributes to be a far better player, maybe not World Class Brendan Rodgers said he could be but still better than he shows most of the time.


12.) 05 Jun 2021 11:08:02
I’ll pay £20 to have him come play football with my kids in the garden at the weekends?

{Ed025's Note - why mikey?...is your lamppost broken.. :)


13.) 05 Jun 2021 13:23:52
14-17M GBP (depending on who you read/ follow) does not seem that unreasonable for him right now, as it is so early in the transfer season. the market needs to develop a little more. the euros and then summer tours can create an opportunity as injuries will likely happen.


14.) 05 Jun 2021 16:34:22
Gets in the way of someone like Elliott or Gordon for me. Not good enough for this club, a couple of tap ins i could have scored against the Toffees and Barcelona doesn't change that.


15.) 05 Jun 2021 22:08:17
I have been saying since we won the champions league we should have sold Origi never been nowhere near good enough but he is a club legend now for 3 games against Everton Barcelona and Spurs. But he seem to be like his like one of them cult movies that some people vastly overrated.


16.) 08 Jun 2021 11:16:59
Ed025, what is your problem with Origi!? He's scored some great goals for us, not forgetting those countless goals against that blue team in merseysi-

Oh wait, I see now. ;)

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a problem with him CM he seems like a nice guy actually mate....but hes just not any good, he has scored some vital goals though but its on average about one a year, if accrington or someone like that was looking for a forward i think he would be a good option for them, but any higher and i think hes struggling..


17.) 08 Jun 2021 17:20:31
Haha, just messing Ed!

Unfortunately I do think his best days for Liverpool are behind him.

I always wonder what could have been if it wasn't for the blue noses Funes-Mori trying to destroy Origi's career just whilst he was showing massive promise. He obviously has done well but who knows how good he could have been if he never had the injury back when he was on fire.

{Ed025's Note - we always try and injure your players CM, its the only way we can beat you mate...except when we murdered you on your own midden last season.. :)


 

 

04 Jun 2020 17:29:08
Timo Werner has apparently agreed to join Liverpool today with an announcement shortly to follow with some agent fees left to agree. Personal terms are sorted.

Source is to be questioned for sure it derives from Kuwait and people involved in the sponsorship elements of the deal with both player and club.

Take it or leave it just sharing what im told.

jkh1983

1.) 04 Jun 2020 17:59:08
Seems to be rumours from Bild, that he is off to Chelsea.

If they have managed to get him fair play, we clearly spoke to him then didn't want to stump up the cash. although I'd imagine the the virus situation is effecting what we could afford.


2.) 04 Jun 2020 18:15:23
Sky are reporting he is off to Chelsea so we can put this to bed.


3.) 04 Jun 2020 18:21:11
Sky Germany reporting Chelsea are favourites to sign him.


4.) 04 Jun 2020 21:01:31
I heard he’s off to Chelsea. We’ve ballsed this up good and proper scrabbling around after a waster like Dembele.

Good news Spurs want adama traore.

jkh1983

1.) 01 Aug 2021 21:03:16
Go on Spurs, spend some of that Harry Kane money!


2.) 01 Aug 2021 21:48:35
Traore or no more signings what would you prefer?

{Ed0666's Note - great question. I know if you asked eds 001 he’d want to swerve Traore and give Elliot the opportunity. Listen I know Adama isn’t great but could make a player out of him that scores goals and creates? So I would say give me Adama over new signings. Touching on the Elliot debate I’ve no doubt the kids gonna be a rockstar but I think its a a year too early as he won’t get as much game time as I would like him to have.


3.) 01 Aug 2021 21:56:03
No more signings. Better to not spend and save the cash for another time, than to throw good money to bad for the sake of it.


4.) 01 Aug 2021 22:01:11
I don’t see how Traore arriving would give Elliot any more chance of getting game time.

For me if traore or Bowen arrive I would not be surprised if it is the club planning on a life without one of the front three.

{Ed0666's Note - you mean if Bowen or traore arrive that one of the front 3 will be sold this season or next season?


5.) 01 Aug 2021 22:13:33
I have to say, shifting on any of the front three for Traore or Bowen would be possibly the worst decision the club had made since deciding that Mario Balotelli was a suitable replacement for Luis Suarez.

{Ed0666's Note - or replacing Rafa with Woy


6.) 01 Aug 2021 22:43:13
I’m not saying I agree.

I just think it’s the way the club operates. There’s only a couple of players that could replace salah or mane that’d be mbappe or chiesa perhaps both well out of reach of the clubs finances. LFC will look to build a player to that level rather than purchase someone at it.


7.) 01 Aug 2021 22:46:57
That too Ed.


8.) 01 Aug 2021 23:09:53
Jordz, Traore could play for another thousand years and never reach Salah’s level. You either got it or you ain’t. And he ain’t got it.


9.) 02 Aug 2021 10:07:44
Not disagreeing with you on Traore, but wonder how many people would have said the same about Salah not having it after his stint at Chelsea, VVV….?


10.) 02 Aug 2021 11:43:46
I thought Adama was clicking and getting it around 18 months ago but last year was a regression. I do think he could be a decent impact sub but he’s better playing in a counter attacking side with open space ahead of him, something that we rarely play against, i also believe the prices being quoted don’t relate to the risk attached. I wouldn’t want to be paying much over £25m in today’s market.


11.) 02 Aug 2021 11:50:51
we have tried that route with Shaqiri, Origi, Taki and are now at crossroads unable to offload anyone of them. what is the point of signing more pointless players who would become a liability after a couple of years. Both Traore and Bowen are not good enough for the money.


12.) 02 Aug 2021 12:02:51
Do you mean ‘when Woy weplaced Wafa’?


13.) 02 Aug 2021 11:55:20
I agree with you ed0666 I would rather Elliott go on loan again in the championship where he would play most weeks in a very hard league. I would take Traore as squad player people call him on here but Think Origi is a good player I think Traore would contribute more than Origi and shaq put together over the past 2 seasons.


14.) 02 Aug 2021 11:56:24
What money VVVV? we haven't got any, now our sister rounders team that's another story. We've got enough for djimi traore but he must be easily 41 now and was bad enough first time around.


 

 

27 Jul 2021 11:57:56
Bring in Ibe, Sturridge and Clyne on one year deals low wage all HG all bench/ squaddies.

Hopefully help Ibe out refind himself, Studge can score a goal and clyne well he is what he is but could cover RB if he stayed out the clubs.

I know none of this will happen but its a throw away comment on a quick fix for the HG issue till the others develop from the reserves.

Shoot away peeps!

KingCarlos, I agree he should get all the support and help he needs, but I hope that comes well continuing as a footballer. Depression isn’t a death sentence and with the right help he can still achieve success. It can be turned into a tool to fuel succes.

Would souness last a full game with today's referees he would be off after 1st challenge but oh boy would it be a cracker of one into the bargain.

Via James Pearce re Saul

“At the moment it’s pretty tenuous. There were some reports of a £35m bid going in. My information is that definitely wasn’t correct. At the moment it’s a case of wait and see depending on what they can raise from sales. ”.

Looks like he is off to Barcelona anyway with a swap deal with AG.


2.) 14 Jul 2021 15:25:40
Ed002 and Fabrizio Romano also said that we need to raise funds through sales of fringe players. So nothing groundbreaking there.

In any case, it looks as though we're prioritising a wide forward initially and if we go after a midfielder it will be later in the window with Renato Sanches the most likely.

Konate, Traore and Sanches would be my best guess for who we end the summer with. Can't say i'd have picked any of them given their injury records but if it is to be those three, in Klopp we trust.


3.) 14 Jul 2021 17:48:16
Is that your personal opinion that we'll prioritize a wide forward over a midfielder MK? Just everything you read is about midfielders and it's relatively quiet on the wide forward mark? Would be interested if I've missed something as I think another versatile forward is arguably more important looking at the squad.


4.) 14 Jul 2021 18:11:39
Traore and Sanches would be like this summer’s equivalent of Diao and Diouff. Utter wastes of money. Sanches is injured half the time and only decides to play well for Portugal and Traore couldn’t score if you gave him a million quid and stuck him in a Bangkok brothel.


5.) 14 Jul 2021 18:26:18
Traore and Sanches would be a big waste of money for me. I’d rather play Elliot and Jones all season!


6.) 14 Jul 2021 18:51:52
PickleRick, it's the opinion of Fabrizio Romano who is very rarely wrong when it comes to Liverpool info. He is adamant that a winger or striker is the priority due to the AFCON (Salah and Mane away) and Sanches is the most likely midfield signing later in the window if funds are raised. Things change fast in football but everything he says seems to tally up to an extent with what Ed002 says.


7.) 14 Jul 2021 18:53:31
I would 100% agree with John 1983.

Romano has said that the Saul / Griezmann thing is pretty much on. So forget Saul, it’s not likely to happen.

{Ed001's Note - how can Atleti afford to do that?}


10.) 14 Jul 2021 19:02:17
I can’t see Saul going to Barcelona they are in financial dire straights. They are trying to get Messi to take an 80% wage cut. Barca need to seriously trim the wage bill, not add to it.


11.) 14 Jul 2021 19:12:56
Ed001, i don't think these Spanish clubs are very well run to be honest 😂 although to be fair, apparently Griezmann is prepared to take a massive pay cut. Still seems strange how two clubs with crippling financial issues are still making huge deals. They'll bury themselves one day if they carry on.

{Ed001's Note - they are appallingly run, but even so they are both over the La Liga salary cap, so how are they able to bring players in? I don't understand the point of the cap there, it does not seem to actually do anything.}


12.) 14 Jul 2021 20:20:50
Ed001, your guess is as good as mine. I’d imagine they’ll use the same creative accounting that gets Jacob Rees Mogg a zero tax bill.

{Ed001's Note - that's a good point, maybe Harry Redknapp's dog Rosie(?) has a new bank account?}

Morning all, has there been any movement on the Malen front, a couple of Journos suggesting PSV want there squad finalised by 19 July pre Champs League Qualifier.

Apparently the manager is resigned to losing Malen and Dumfries this window.

I know Dortmund are also linked to the player.

Cheers.

jkh1983

{Ed077's Note - Malen is still a PSV player right now. Hope that helps ;-)}


1.) 08 Jul 2021 10:07:41
thanks for clearing that up Ed, i have been searching the cosmos for the answer to that!

{Ed077's Note - I'm glad I could clear things up :-D}


2.) 08 Jul 2021 13:18:19
We Ed77 that was the worst update from an Ed this year lol cheers bud.

Hope your well.

{Ed077's Note - more like the worst attempt at humour, and we all know how horrible Ed666 is at them...


I'm good jkh, What about you?}


3.) 08 Jul 2021 15:56:41
Not bad thanks matey, enjoyed the game last night and looking forward to Sunday now before we switch back to club allegiances once again.

I hope we win it, I've never seen England even reach a final before now!

Agent Rafa taking over the other side thoughts Ed25.

jkh1983

{Ed025's Note - not my first choice i must admit jkh, but quite happy actually and i will be behind him 100% mate...until he gives me reason not to like every other manager we have had mate..


1.) 16 Jun 2021 19:36:05
Best of luck to him ed025, he clearly loved the area and did a lot charity wise as did his Mrs. If you boys back him he will do well for you.

He gave us some good times so won’t hold it against him trying to get you back challenging for Europe. But the reaction from the majority in the Derby will be interesting.

{Ed025's Note - from which supporters WYred.. :)


2.) 16 Jun 2021 19:42:09
Hes a very good manager there is no doubt in that so if your fans give him time (which i don't think they will) he could do well.

I mean I hope he doesn't ha but you could have done a lot worse, Rafa will work better with the players left behind than nuno would they suit a rafa system more.

{Ed025's Note - i just hope he doesn,t make us play as boring as you were under him jkh..


3.) 16 Jun 2021 19:46:58
Dont hold your breath he will be defense first that's for sure. Brings a chance of silverware that no doubt will be what the board is thinking.


4.) 16 Jun 2021 20:21:51
Agent Rafa lol.


5.) 16 Jun 2021 20:41:27
Evertonains have been banging on about their mangers past 10 years but tbh Rafa will have them playing well. A little worried.


6.) 16 Jun 2021 21:20:23
Like most Liverpool fans I love Rafa purely for 2005. I must admit I did despise the way we played football under him though.
The best way I could describe it is how I heard Paul Merson describe it once. Subbuteo Football. Everyone stays in their positions and they move up and down the pitch as one keeping gaps between players small. It was only Gerrard and Torres that gave us any threat whatsoever.
He was praised for keeping Newcastle up and then Steve Bruce has more than surpassed what Rafa did at Newcastle so it can’t have been that great an achievement.
I wish him well but I think it will go horribly wrong and the fans will be very quick to turn on him when it does because he’s a Liverpool legend. It’s like when George Graham went to Spurs. Destined for failure.

Daka has achieved nothing yet in a top league or top competitions its not comparable until he shows whether he can achieve at this level.

Brewster and Solanke so what if they are HG they barely kicked a ball and we got best part of £40 million for them.

Whilst I agree we overprice some players Divock has PL, CL and International experience given a run of games would score goals and has proven to be able to do so against top sides before today.

I don't get the need to undervalue players just as much as overvaluing them makes no sense either. Name another striker of Divock age and experience that you can buy for 10 million?

I understand gents and to be clear I’m not inciting or suggesting anyone has done wrong I was just airing on the side of caution no offence intended. It’s a minefield out there.

I too have been a long term user of many years i just don't see the need to attack continually regardless of Harrys opinions of choices this particular post was simply created as a way of digging out Harry and not in response to a comment made.

Personally of the ilk live and let live you may not agree that's fine make that point and move on. I don't pretend to be an angel i just think in this day and age mental health has a spotlight and rightly so and these type of things although unintentional can have an impact on a person.

I would love to be able to utilise european refs in the PL not all are great but they would improve the standard for sure. A league system could also work both teams rate the ref after the game from 1-3 points relegate and promote through the leagues.
