Did anyone else read in the Daily Mail that PSG have spoken to Salah about joining them in the summer.
Isn't this an illegal approach?

langland

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that they are one of the clubs his agent has been talking to. Not the player.}


1.) 13 Apr 2021 00:17:44
Salah is probably in the top 5, definitely in the top 10 forwards in world football. He seems to be getting better as well. He's well on course for a good 32-35 goals this season again. I don't think Salah will leave anyway. I think the big clubs will have their eyes on the likes of Mbappe, Haaland and Sancho with them being 6-8 years younger. In the current climate who can afford and is willing to pay the fee and wages for Salah? He'll be the best part of a €400m investment over a 5 year contract.

{Ed0666's Note - 32-35 goals???? Are you joking scouser??!


2.) 13 Apr 2021 02:47:30
Salah already has 28 goals and still has a minimum of 8 games left to play, he should get to 32 goals easily.


3.) 13 Apr 2021 03:20:08
Salah already has 26 goals in all competitions. I think he will score atleast 4 more to make it 30.

{Ed077's Note - I think he has 28 goals and 4 assists in all comp.


4.) 13 Apr 2021 03:26:40
Well PSG can get lost. If they want a forward, they can have Origi, Mane or Bobby.
Losing Salah would be a disaster. Tie him up to a new contract and make sure he stays put for a while.


5.) 13 Apr 2021 07:15:05
Farmers league.


6.) 13 Apr 2021 09:50:51
This is the perfect time to sell Salah, and bring in someone younger.

If he hits the skids next year like Mane has doner, he will be a 30 year-old who who will not fetch a large transfer fee.

But there are very few potential buyers for him. Probably only 4 or 5 clubs around Europe could pay him the wages he will be looking for.


7.) 13 Apr 2021 10:05:51
And Salah is short. That's why he's so good.


8.) 13 Apr 2021 11:20:37
Ed0666 he has 28 already. 7 league games and at least 1 Champions League game is more than enough for him to get 4-7 goals in my opinion.

{Ed0666's Note - sorry mate I had a brain fart was thinking of another striker.

Hi Eds
Have we shown any interest in Andre Silva of Frankfurt?
I just found out a very interesting link that he has with LFC?

langland

{Ed002's Note - No. Andre Silva (S) was recommended to several clubs, certainly including Everton, Wolves and Manchester United, by a very high-end independent scout who used to play in the Premier League. This dates back to last summer before his loan became a permanent move. Atletico Madrid have declared an interest.}


1.) 22 Feb 2021 20:25:13
Shame, he looks as good as his brother.
Diogo Jota.


2.) 23 Feb 2021 01:57:03
Pretty certain the Andre Silva of frankfurt is no Diego Jota's brother. His brother, also named Andre Silva, plays for Boavista and is 5 years younger than the one who plays for Frankfurt.

{Ed077's Note - you are correct👍


3.) 24 Feb 2021 18:15:33
Just want to say welcome to Ed077, I was a bit dubious when I saw that he was a Penalty United fan, but I am happy to give him a 3 months trial.

{Ed077's Note - VARhester United sounds more natural to me🤣

And thanks Langland. Let's hope I get a long term deal after the trials and don't get rejected for some weird reason like Mbappe at Chelsea}


 

 

01 Feb 2021 21:19:01
Hey Eds
Heard anything about Minamino to Southampton on loan?

langland

{Ed002's Note - I know they were offered him and it would likely do him good.}

Express reporting that Tony Kroos wants to work with Klopp.

Maybe wants to start a specialist boating and horse riding company - Kroos and Klopp.

langland

1.) 21 Jan 2018 18:11:31
The express have reported some daft stories this window.


2.) 21 Jan 2018 18:42:47
Express just prints garbage on the front, back and middle pages. If it’s not immigrants, it’s princess Diana or statins.


3.) 21 Jan 2018 18:44:11
The Express, says it all, don't believe a word .


4.) 21 Jan 2018 21:43:02
They took the quotes out of context. It came from Don Ballon, but what the express forgot to mention is that Kroos was urging Klopp to join him at Real Madrid, not issuing a come get me plea 😂.


5.) 21 Jan 2018 23:12:05
The only use for the express is if you run out of toilet paper. Same goes for Don Balon.


6.) 22 Jan 2018 16:50:09
You are right MK haha
Im shocked they didn’t link us with Ronaldo too since he wants Klopp at Madrid also 😂.


7.) 22 Jan 2018 16:54:34
The Guardian is so much more satisfying, tho, Mr Dennis. And softer too.

I don't think Trent enhanced his future England chances today.
Not impressed with him for the first 75 minutes. He didn't show enough urgency for me.

langland

1.) 05 Sep 2021 22:58:08
England just play completely differently. He was in a new position to start with and with a squad around him who were also very new, the first half wasn't great.

TAA is probably the world's best attacking full back but England don't utilise full backs very well, you'll see it occasionally but very rarely will you see them leading the attack or whipping balls in for players like Kane to nudge in.

I think Walker will remain first choice RB because he's an easy/ lazy option.


2.) 05 Sep 2021 22:16:57
Not being funny but I actually don’t like the treatment of Trent when playing for England. Trent is only one year older than Foden, yet he is somehow placed in the youngster category and is the same age as Mount. The whole should he have made the Euro squad wound me up no end and can only imagine what it did for his confidence. Now Walker makes it in the team ahead of him and is never questioned for his constant mistakes, not to mention his lack of crossing ability or positional sense but because he is fast it mask everything and is rarely brought up? I’m a reasonable man when it comes to rating our players and know the sun does not shine from all our behinds, it’s just this particular subject is infuriating. Did he have his best game, no. Was he terrible, the answer would also be no. He was played in midfield for 70 odd minutes where he struggled slightly with his positioning, which is understandable given the fact he doesn’t play there for us. When he switched to right back he had a greater influence on the game. The boy is special and some of the passes he makes is nothing short of breath taking but unfortunately the media have ran with this “Trent has to prove himself to make the team or squad” despite his club current form for club. Unfortunately under Gareth Southgate, who is a topic in itself to be saved for another day will never be appreciated for the talent he is. Anyways, can’t wait for Premier League footy to be back on this weekend.


3.) 06 Sep 2021 01:27:39
I would greatly prefer it if none of our players were subjected to Southgate’s football management skills.


4.) 06 Sep 2021 06:25:01
Bit harsh when he had to play 45 minutes in a position he hasn't played since his youth days.


5.) 06 Sep 2021 17:09:00
OP, and how was he supposed to do any of that when he was playing in a position he prolly has never played since he moved to RB 4/ 5 years ago?

Also, Im not even bothered about what TAA does or doesn't do with England cos we know the manager cannot stand him and also here, he knows he will prolly struggle in midfield cos he doesn't play there anymore and when he does, he knows the media will be out for him. The guy is weak. Instead of saying Trent is not in his plans and stick with it (hence, deal with the impending blowback like a man with a spine), he would rather hang him out to dry and allow the media and the haters on SM do his job for him. A true soup sandwich.


 

 

01 Aug 2021 17:06:43
For all those that are pooing their pants because Man City might be signing Grealish and Kane.
Just remember they will be replacing some pretty good players
Are they, that much of an improvement on who they might replace?
I don't think so.
Grealish will not score as many goals as Sterling scores and Aguero's goals per minute are far higher than Kane.

langland

{Ed025's Note - you keep telling yourself that langland, the rest of us know the truth mate..


1.) 01 Aug 2021 17:20:36
As the Ed says you keep telling yourself that Langland.


2.) 01 Aug 2021 18:08:47
Man City are buying 2 excellent football players, 2 players that improve their starting 11 which means they are pretty exceptional. Price means nothing, it ain't our money to worry about. But to question the signing of these 2 fellas is simply ridiculous.


3.) 01 Aug 2021 18:09:48
Grealish will set up a lot of goals either with assists or with his dives to set up free kicks in dangerous areas.


4.) 01 Aug 2021 18:15:59
Ok Langland the best striker in the epl and a up and coming top youngster sound lad.


5.) 01 Aug 2021 18:43:33
Man City with not be signing both players. Plus if they did they would have to sell plenty of their title winning side.

{Ed025's Note - they will just fiddle the books mark..


6.) 01 Aug 2021 19:38:22
I certainly wouldn't lose any sleep over City making those two signings. If it was Messi, Haaland or Mbappe, perhaps.

The only thing that would potentially annoy me about them is that they would "win" a disproportional amount of free-kicks. They are champion divers.


7.) 01 Aug 2021 20:31:43

As for them signing Kane and Grealish, who cares at this point? These are the same people who were ready to sign Lionel Messi by any means necessary just to compete against that small club from Merseyside (sorry Ed25, not Neverton) .

They will sign who they want and that is fine. We can’t match them on this level BUT we can match them on the pitch by doing what we need to do on our side to maximise our own output. That’s all we can do.


8.) 02 Aug 2021 02:34:21
Jeez, can you imagine City’s free kick statistics next season if they get Kane and Grealish (to go with Sterling) . They could be breaking records.


 

 

16 May 2021 22:16:59
Was screaming at the players this afternoon, whilst watching the game.
Firminho, Mane, Trent, Wynauldum.
" Why are you lifting your shots?
1) If the ball is in the air it is much easier for the keeper to save.
2) If you try for the bottom corner instead of the top corner, it definitely won't go over the bar".
Then Allison sticks that one in the top corner.
Wife says to me "Its a good job that he wasn't listening to you"
My reply "headers are different"
Maybe we should bring Michael Owen in as a finishing coach?

langland

1.) 16 May 2021 22:23:30
Owen wasn’t a natural finisher. Fowler was by far a better finisher.


2.) 16 May 2021 23:06:23
As Ed001 said a couple of weeks back, bring back Shankly's sweatbox.

{Ed0666's Note - they have one of them at the BDSM club Eds 001 goes to


3.) 16 May 2021 23:12:19
Bring Fowler in for that, not Owen .

{Ed0666's Note - I agree Owen missed some real sitters


4.) 17 May 2021 00:44:35
Fowler had instinct and natural ability, not something that can be taught, and probably not something he could teach either.
Much better to find a striker who couldn’t hit a barn door at first but learned how to be better if you want to bring someone in to teach how to finish.


5.) 17 May 2021 02:59:52
Hey ed0666, I notice nobody's made reference to the BDSM clubs yet. Lots of uncomfortable shifting about maybe! As you seem to be in the know, is a sweatbox a room or something you wear ;)

{Ed0666's Note - you’ll have to ask Eds 001 when i let him out of my dungeon. Can’t get good gimps these days 😂


6.) 17 May 2021 09:36:53
The things you’d learn of Fowler are when to take that early shot, the positions you adopt to maximise the chances of scoring, how to play off the shoulder of the defender, Owen only had pace, once that went there was nothing. And he’s as dull as a day out in Luton with Ole Gunnar Solskjear as your company.


7.) 17 May 2021 09:51:12
Owen wasn't a natural finisher - hahahahahahahahahahaha.
Need to read no more after that.


8.) 17 May 2021 10:03:21
I do agree with the poster above that, if we are going to get a finishing coach, its much better to get someone who had to work on finishing (and succeeded) rather than a natural finisher.

Harking back to a post a few days ago about ex-players who have had to work at their craft potentially making better managers than the naturals, its a similar issue.

Ask God how he puts it into the top left corner with his back to goal and a defender on him, he'll likely say "I just did" whereas a player who's had to practise this day in day out to get to be anywhere near as good as God will be (likely) better able to explain the mechanics.

Of course there will be exceptions - naturally gifted players who also understand the mechanics and make excellent coaches or managers (King Kenny, Cryuff etc) and God may be one of them, but it may be better to pick someone who's had to work on it.

"Hey John W can we have some new players in the summer?

Ideally we would like Haaland Sancho and Jude Bellingham"

"Ok guys, I am working on a deal to bring in extra funds, so we will be joining a new European Super League"

"NO NO YOU CAN NOT DO THAT, STAYING IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE IS SANCROSANT"

"OK guys but don't ask me for any new players then".

langland

1.) 25 Apr 2021 15:02:14
I’d rather not get any players if it means ruining football as we know it. Maybe if they capped players wages, sorted agents fees and made transfer fee a little more believable instead of stupid, then that would make players more affordable.


2.) 25 Apr 2021 15:23:38
Pegleg, perhaps you can explain to me how forming a European Super League will ruin football as we know it?

As I understand it, the teams that were going into the Super League were not going to leave the Premier League, so I don't see how it adversely affects the other 14 teams in the league, in fact it would benefit them as 4 of them would be guaranteed Champions League football going forward.
If you are going to say that football isn't the same without the threat of relegation, I can tell you that it is the same, having been involved in leagues where teams that finish bottom do not get relegated.
Winning a game in the last minute is still an amazing feeling, and losing a game is still as gut wrenching.
Winning the league in the last game of the season, will stay in my mind until the day that I pass from this mortal coil
I seriously do not understand what was wrong with the Super League idea.


3.) 25 Apr 2021 15:51:53
Same can be said about the £70 ticket prices for the new stand when the fans walked out mid way through the game.


4.) 25 Apr 2021 16:18:54
I’m sure you would have been absolutely fine with the fact you can never be promoted in ESL if Liverpool hadn’t been one of the elite clubs then Langland?


5.) 25 Apr 2021 16:23:44
This argument was explained in graphic detail on the internet and in the media for the best part of a week by fans, pundits, players, managers and more . If you still don't understand then that's fine, but just to bring this up again so soon after it has been explained probably means you didn't pay attention.


6.) 25 Apr 2021 16:32:23
OP, you have captured this ironic situation perfectly. Fans want big time owners to invest in their clubs and buy top players (they aren’t free, cost a country’s national budget, and the wages are thru the roof) yet want to tell the owners (who OWN their clubs btw) what they should and should not do with their own money and acquired asset. Check out Simon Jordan’s comments on Talksport. It is quite enlightening and hilarious at the same time.


7.) 25 Apr 2021 17:21:28
Come the season after next, we'll see what happens to ticket and TV subscription prices - I'd expect that they'll become a problem.

Additionally, a minimum of 5 teams across the associated leagues, per season, would be promoted in an ESL model. That's 1-2 teams more per season that wouldn't ordinarily see top-flight European action.

Thirdly, there would be little reason for non-ESL clubs to not participate in existing European competitions, i. e. CL/ EL.

More money, controlled by the earning clubs, enhanced financial kick-backs to domestic leagues and grassroots, no required change to domestic competition, increased participation in top-level, European competition - amongst other benefits. The main thing they got wrong is that they didn't try to include fans, players and staff in formative discussions. Another is that they didn't gauge the influence of the Sky/ media-sponsored mouthpieces.

{Ed002's Note - Have you been at the brown acid?}


8.) 25 Apr 2021 17:30:24
That has been levelled at me in the past.


9.) 25 Apr 2021 18:21:55
Shaq Attack
You embarrass yourself with your reply.
1) Liverpool will always be an elite football club so that chance of them not being included is nil.
2) There would have been opportunity for teams to be pr the Super League.
So are you another person that is objecting to this league but you don't really know why you are objecting?


10.) 25 Apr 2021 18:15:37
Vermiculo
All that I have heard all week is.
Its not fair on the other 14 teams in the league - Every team in the league try to gain an advantage over the others, fairly or unfairly. So that argument doesn't wash
I hear that you can't have football without relegation - But you can.
Also there were 5 spaces for teams that could be relegated and promoted to the league.
So that argument doesn't wash.
The only people that I understand objecting are the media, the likes of Sky, BT and Talksport, who probably would not get the media rights, because the Super League clubs were looking to stream the matches on their own platforms. - And boy have they been objecting, and showing 200 fans showing up to demonstrate against the Super League, but not pointing out that there are 10s of thousands of fans that have not demonstrated.
Simon Jordan from Talksport seems to get mentioned on here a lot, probably because he does sometimes talk sense.
He said " If the Premier League clubs decided to broadcast their own content they could dwarf the revenue that they currently earn, and they could reduce the price point for fans to about £5.00 per month.
Win - Win.

{Ed001's Note - 5 spaces for teams other than the founding 15. So no relegation and promotion for three quarters of the teams. If you fail to understand the effect it would have on the rest of football, those that are on the outside, then it is because you are self-centred moral vacuum who doesn't care about others. The media are irrelevant. This is about the football league as a whole that would collapse. Win win? For who? No one wins but the rich owners. Jordan speaks sense? No he doesn't. He speaks greed but you seem to be exactly the same.

You speak like a Thatcherite. Because that is exactly what this plan entails, doing what Thatcher did. Get rich at everyone else's expense and **** 'em, they can die in poverty for all you care because you don't care as your team would be rich. Sad. I miss the days when people actually stood up for what was right, rather than tried to make excuses like you are doing and pretending it is just 200 against it.}


11.) 25 Apr 2021 18:43:05
Thanks for your reply Ed001, at last someone is giving me a reason why I should be against the Super League - because the whole football league would collapse.
I do not see the connection between the two, but that is probably due to my Thatcherite tendencies, in fact I almost regret going on strike for 12 months trying to stop Thatcher from shutting the pits down in 1984/ 1985.

{Ed001's Note - if you don't see the connection, it is because you don't understand what football is about. The ups and downs, the relegations and promotions, you are so ensconced in talking about Liverpool and what it does for them, you have forgotten that nothing happens in isolation.

As for what you did back then, shame it never taught you anything then. Because you are now backing the very same ideas that she brought to the practice of mining. Send all the money to the ones that made her money, those mines in Oz her hubby had shares in and let the British ones go to rack and ruin as they had no one left to sell their product to. Which is exactly what will happen to the rest of the English leagues without the biggest clubs. The long term plan is not to stay in the domestic league, they have made it plain from the start that there are too many games because that is the next step. The move away from the domestic game to being only in the ESL to protect 'their' product.}


12.) 25 Apr 2021 18:59:00
The ESL is terrible idea, it benefits the rich few and leaves the rest behind. Imagine watching Arsenal finish bottom of the ESL 5 years in a row yet continue to play in it, it would be embarrassing. I will never support a league that is a closed shop with no relegation or promotion.


13.) 25 Apr 2021 19:41:25
I apologise Langland you were paying attention, it's just empathy you're having trouble with, there's a song about it you know from a musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Cheers Ed01 for saving me the time to go over this .


14.) 25 Apr 2021 19:46:52
Sancrosant?
Are they a Spanish team?


15.) 25 Apr 2021 19:53:02
Langland has to be trolling.


16.) 25 Apr 2021 20:06:29
In relation to the comment as this not impacting the other 14 PL teams negatively as they could have 4 of them in the Champions League. so Bayern and PSG versus Leicester, West Ham, Everton and Leeds.

While we would be playing Arsenal and Spurs in our "super" league where it wouldn't even matter how bad your club could get as last place means nothing.

What a load of garbage. No thank you.


 

 

11 Apr 2021 16:15:30
Is it just me that thinks that on loan players should not be allowed to play in the same league that their team plays in, because no team should be allowed more than 11 players on the pitch during each round of matches?

Also
I know that there have been a few of these but, when the ball was played forward in the West Ham v Leicester game today Lingard was off side, but because his team mate then ran in front of him and then crossed he was all of a sudden onside and able to score.
But.
If a players shirt sleeve is offside, the goal is disallowed.

langland

1.) 11 Apr 2021 17:15:14
I think it’s just you that thinks that.


2.) 11 Apr 2021 22:25:47
The one that baffles me is when the defender touches the ball making the attacker suddenly onside from an offside position. Like when they were looking at whether Cash touched the ball before deciding whether Jota was offside. If Jota is offside from the initial pass then he’s offside surely as that’s the first offence? If he wasn’t there in an offside position then Cash wouldn’t need to go for the ball would he? Absolutely ridiculous.
There was another one today when a West Ham player shot and the Leicester defender threw himself in front of the ball deflecting it to another West Ham player who scored. Surely then because the defender purposely touched the ball that deems the attacker onside under this stupid rule?
The officials just don’t understand the game at all it’s frightening.
And don’t get me started on the disallowed goal for Utd after Son was obviously knocked out by Mike Tyson!
The game is seriously going to rack and ruin and VAR has only serves to make it much, much worse.

I have to say, I was not impressed with Lukaku in his defensive midfield role.
I did think that going down to 10 men would not really affect Chelsea as Kante does the work of 2 men. I was really shocked when Tuchel subbed him at half time.
Even playing against 10 men teams need some luck to score goals.
Teams with ten men and no less likely to concede but they are less likely to score.
We still need that magician in the middle of the park, maybe it will be Harvey maybe we need to bring someone in?

Grealish to Man City seems such a strange one to me.
He couldn't get into the England team because of Sterling and Sterling struggled to get into the City team at the end of last season, because of Foden. I think that he will slow their play down by holding onto the ball too long.
But Pep usually knows what he is doing.
Until it comes to Champions League semis and final.

VVVV people might take more notice of your observations if you didn't make ridiculous statements.
I get that you don't rate Traore, but Djimi would not be a better signing. I am guessing that your comments about Andy Robertson were similar? before Klopp got.

ffs get a grip hailstones.
Sometimes not adding to the squad strengthens it.
The current players all understand what Klopp wants them to do as a team.
Bring in too many new players and that cohesion goes.

At least give the lads a chance before you write them off.

Not sure that Gini served us with distinction for 5 years Parker, as I recall he had an average first year, a decent two years, then not so good, and if it hadn't been for injuries to other players I don't think that he would have played much at all last year.
However, he was a first team player for five years, and won a load of trophies with us, and I assume that if he stopped playing football tomorrow, that he would never have to work again, thanks to the money that we paid him.
I agree that greed was the reason that he left, and I really do not see him playing much for PSG.
Thanks to Gini for his contribution, maybe he will look back on his time at LFC with fondness in the future.
Regarding fans on social media slagging him off, f*cking grow up Gini, half of them are probably rival fans.

langland

{Ed077's Note - I guess Thiago joined Liverpool just out of greed then too. After all he did win it all with Bayern and was paid very handsomely for his services whilst at Munich and Barcelona before that too.

My 2 cents worth
We were lucky with the side of the draw that we were in, but we reached the final.
I was embarrassed to see Italy centre backs playing in our half in open play and us keeping 11 players behind the ball, why Southgate didn't tell Sterling to go and stand on the halfway line is beyond me, this would have occupied two players and given us an out ball instead of just giving the ball back to Italy. However reaching the final is an improvement and we now have 18 months for our players to improve. That is assuming that Southgate will actually get them on the pitch.
