Just wondering if 2 players hate each others guts, whether player 1 could ask his club not to sign player 2. Which makes me wonder what sort of weird and wonderful conditions have players asked to have put in their contracts?

I’m pretty sure Liverpool were in for Lucas Neill years ago until Carra said he didn’t want him to sign because he broke his leg.


2.) 23 Oct 2020 11:10:17
Messi has certainly told Barcelona who to sell!


3.) 23 Oct 2020 12:03:35
Some of Carragher's mates wanted to give Neil a kicking as well when they saw him out and about one day.

{Ed001's Note - Carragher never did anything about stopping Neill signing, that is complete nonsense. Neill was just greedy and wanted more money than we would pay and got offered more elsewhere so rejected our offer.}


4.) 23 Oct 2020 15:34:46
Yep. West Ham almost doubled what we were offering him, allegedly, so he went there.


5.) 23 Oct 2020 20:26:10
Can you blame him?

Ed001 I had a vague memory you had done a profile on Diego Jota but I can't find it on the player-profiles page. Is my memory failing me (always a possibility) or am I just missing it?

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - I don't think I have done him, I have done Jiminez and Patricio at Wolves, perhaps you were thinking of those?}


1.) 24 Sep 2020 10:34:13
Just read and only just realised that Jota is the most expensive attacker the club have ever bought in their history. Mental to think that we would spend that on a back up. I believe Jota has a big part to play at the club and he's not here to be a bit part player. Not saying he is going to replace the front 3 as they are world class as a 3 but maybe we might see him complementing them.

{Ed002's Note - That is because Liverpool paid £10M more than Wolves were asking for the player in order to sign someone and pay only a small deposit (which came out of the Hoever fee fee) and pay for the transfer at a future date.}


2.) 24 Sep 2020 10:42:35
Given our cashflow issues, do you think this was a good move from the club to pay the additional amount on the assumption we only had to pay a small deposit this year?

{Ed002's Note - It builds future debt for a club that operates on the edge. It will need to be paid and perhaps the club plans to offset it be sales next summer. Obviously the club is still pushing for sales for this summer.}


3.) 24 Sep 2020 11:02:53
Thanks Ed whilst I agree it poses questions in the future. Paying it over the 4 years at a £10m premium vs £35 up front might be a better solution given our income currently is very fragile.

{Ed002's Note - From what Liverpool have provided to the TMS it is not quite like that - but it suits the club for now.}


4.) 24 Sep 2020 17:22:59
If we made significant money from sales could we pay off the debt early to avoid any possibility of being hampered down the line?


5.) 24 Sep 2020 18:21:10
Probably no point redscarface, probably better off keeping it as working capital for the club and leaving it in the 'bank', unless of course we can get a discount on the Jota fee by paying up early, which I doubt.

Ed001 Wondering if you are going to do a season review for each team - inc how their transfer panned out?

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - actually funny you should say that, we just did two podcasts on that, as I was intending to wait until the European competitions were over to see if anyone from the Prem won it. I think all the Prem teams are out now though, so I am going to start on it today.}


1.) 17 Aug 2020 14:42:23
City ARE bottlers! Lol. We are far more comfortable on the big stage. It's those six trophies knocking about. We even pop up and win it with a not even wc team.

Have city ever won it?

Next season we should turn our backs on them!
(i always thought that was supreme stupidity. You've finally got a team that can play and you turn your back on it. Idiots)

{Ed002's Note - This pathetic arrogance of Liverpool supporters is embarrassing. Manchester City did Liverpool a huge favour this season and then the club embarrassed themselves in showing so little respect to another club as to write to CAS and then were left red-faced and stupid by the reply. It is time to move on.}


2.) 17 Aug 2020 15:06:47
Why is it embarrassing ed02? They should have won that cl. They bottled it. Again.

I'm a football fan, I only care about what goes on on the pitch really. I had nothing to do with that, neither did our players or their players. If we had gone out against lyon in place of city, would they be pleased about it on the city page, or would they be sending messages of support?

They're the ones who turn their backs on everyone, I was being ironic.

Ed02 mate. It's been thirty years, and we have won the league. Last year we made our 6th cl, that springboarded us into this season which saw us win the super Cup and the cwc, then the pl. If you can't be arrogant then, when can you be man?

{Ed002's Note - The posts have been truly embarrassing.}


3.) 17 Aug 2020 15:26:56
I actually fancied them to win it Ed, and hoped they would for a while.


4.) 17 Aug 2020 16:03:13
I wanted to see City win. Its the only thing that could have improved our season. Either that, or Atletico winning it.


5.) 17 Aug 2020 16:05:39
Dont backtrack robbiesline, you are allowed an opinion on the subject mate. City did do us a massive favour and we spat in their face but people like Bernardo Silva have massively embarrassed the club and himself. Disrespectf, childish and pathetic. He also refused to clap of the gaurd of honour. Silly boy.


6.) 17 Aug 2020 16:26:11
Nobody has mentioned the off field issues between the 2 clubs on this post except you Ed.
All I can see is what a lot of football fans do to each other when they have a better season. Childish as it may be.


7.) 17 Aug 2020 16:55:34
Bbd, not backtracking. If you read the posts for a couple of days ago, I fancied city. But whdn i saw lyon 1 0 up, I really hoped they'd hold on.

I can't believe a team that can play like city, lost to lyon in the biggest game in their history. Got battered! That cl was theirs for the taking. I like lyon for it now. What a win.

Sorry to be ignorant. How did they help us?


8.) 17 Aug 2020 17:12:29
Robbiesline I think ed002 might be referencing Man City’s former scout poaching their scouting records on our behalf. Think we agreed to pay them compo or something rather than them going public. Could be wrong though.

{Ed002's Note - I am referring to them saying to the FA that they saw no need to follow up on the hacking of the Manchester City IT system by members of Liverpool staff that could have resulted not only in FA punishment but criminal proceedings. Liverpool paid them £1M from the slush fund for this.}


9.) 17 Aug 2020 18:04:43
The phrase 'bottled it' really bothers me. It seems that every time a big club doesn't win a trophy they bottled it. To think that a manager and players who have won multiple trophies bottled it is stupid. The phrase bottled it is a modern one that has come about in the social media banter era. I don't recall anyone saying Liverpool bottled it when they lost to Wimbledon in 88, or when we lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the last game in 89. We love football because anything can happen in any game, its 11 men v 11 men and both teams can win the game.


10.) 17 Aug 2020 18:21:16
No, it's not true thunderbird. Liverpool HAVE bottled the league a few times this last 30 years. Its a trophy a team wants so much, everyone knows they want it. And they can't hold it together. Who's the best team? City or lyon? City are twice the team they are but, the nerves got the better of them. Hence bottled it.


11.) 17 Aug 2020 18:34:34
Sterling bottled it on that open goal though. If City are winning or playing against lowly opposition Sterling scores that. Bit of pressure - bottle gone, ballooned over the bar.


12.) 17 Aug 2020 19:12:39
Exactly flash.


13.) 17 Aug 2020 19:14:58
Us not beating Palace that time! Unbelievable. It was pressure. We showed city we were good enough for the title when we beat them with little pipco scoring a world ie. But couldn't keep it together.

This group we have now don't. I think they thrive on the pressure.


14.) 18 Aug 2020 00:26:53
Robbiesline. Even if we beat palace we would have lost the title on goal difference which is why we tried to score more goals that game. Nothing to do with bottle. Its funny how us fans misremember recent history to suit a narrative.


15.) 18 Aug 2020 16:31:17
We still lost the game and others on that run in. We couldn't hold it together.


 

 

29 Jul 2020 08:30:52
Sorry Ed001 but just to add to your work. Wondering if you could also do a profile on Diego Llorente.

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - yep added to the list for you mate.}


1.) 29 Jul 2020 23:20:57
thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome phil.}


 

 

29 Jul 2020 07:59:54
Ed001 Would you ind doing a profile on Diego Carlos please. Interested to hear why such a high transfer fee is being asked for him. i've only seen a little bit of him and he did seem to do a lot more sliding tackles than I expected in the short snippets I saw.

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - ok mate and that just shows why highlights are often not actually a player's true highlights.}


1.) 29 Jul 2020 13:40:16
Highlights only cover a portion of a players ability, usually focusing on the wow factor e. g skills, last ditch tackles, world class goals.


2.) 29 Jul 2020 23:21:18
thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

Wasnt the replacement for Lovren supposed to be either Williams or Phillips. Bit hard ot keep demanding Klopp give the youngsters a go when you bag him when he does make a path for them.

I agree with 6times. Id love to see Son in our team but we'd never be able to afford him.

He also would want ridiculous wages. Plus I can't for the life of me work out why people think he is a "klopp player". From all accounts he is not a hard trainer and he certainly doesn't seem to work hard on the field. I suspect all the reasons why Mourinho has issues with him would be the same for Klopp.

Ignoring what happened before he left (which I know is hard) - but why would we pay massive wages to a player whose knees are gone and is no longer the player we saw. On a side note - there doesn't seem to have been any incidents whilst he has been at Barcelona - is this because they've been kept out of the press or has he grown up?

{Ed0666's Note - It’s his dream club mate why would he cause a fuss

Everything i've heard is that he works hard and he clearly is trying to do what klopp wants to help the team.

Meg - do you mean like the old days when the entrants had to be the winners of their leagues in order to compete in it?

Muslims also have the option of alternatives to fasting. So if you are a diabetic for example, then it can be acceptable to donate money to a charity instead of fasting. Some elite athletes take this option too.

I read somewhere that they suspect woodburn's foot issues are related to his running style. Multiple fractures have certainly interrupted his progress.

Fabio Cannavaro didn't do too bad for a short guy. As Ed077 says, if your timing and leap are good then you can do very well in the air.

they were both brilliant leaders for their respective teams. I do agree with 6Times that Souness shades him with regarding to passing and goal threat. that's not to downplay Keane, he was a major part of Manu being such a successful team.
