Not a rumour but a question about transfers.

How do transfers work and what is the role of kit manufacturers in it?

e. g. Cristiano Ronaldo is a top Nike Athlete while Real Madrid is sponsored by ADIDAS.

Opposite with Messi

Is there a conflict of interest in this case?
Messi wearing a NIKE Barcelona jersey is obviously not ideal for ADIDAS

Do Adidas/ Nike try to move their top clients to clubs which are sponsored by them? If yes, how does it work?

Do they agree to pay a part of their fee?


{Ed002's Note - In the vast majority of transfers the parties involved are the two club and the player - plus any part owners (rare now), agents etc.. It is nothing to do with the kit manufactures. Adidas and Nike sponor both players and cubs. There have been a tiny number of potential transfers that have seen the involvement of kit manufacturers - two obvious examples being Messi. There is no conflict of interest.}

I remember that years ago ed. didn't you say adidas tried getting messi to Chelsea? And now Man City? Tginkbthr chelsea one came pretty close didn't it.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Manchester City - Chelsea and Anzhi.}

Berger signed 21 years ago, today.

I never saw him play. Was he a good player EDs?


{Ed001's Note - yes.}

1.) 01 Aug 2017 14:40:32
I would RELISH having Berger in our team now.

{Ed025's Note - i prefer..wonchop..

2.) 01 Aug 2017 16:12:26
Don't recycle that old joke, 025. You'll only make a hash of it.

{Ed025's Note - nice zed..

Hey ED001
You must have attended a lot of football matches whilst standing.

Is it true that people would urinate on each other, suffocate to the point of passing out.

How would the kids handle such a thing?

And why wasn't it outlawed long before Hillsborough?


{Ed001's Note - it was before my time, but my grandad, as one of the St Johns that provided medical assistance at the grounds, used to tell me tales about the injuries he had to look after and me ma has quite a few stories of suffocations. It was the introduction of fences that made her stop going to games, as she always said people would die because of them, as she had needed to escape onto the pitch a number of times to avoid a crush.}

1.) 30 Jun 2017 09:46:33
I started off in the bozs pen and graduated to standing in the main section of the Kop around 1965.

Occassionally, people who couldn't get out would pee down a rolled up newspaper but not very often.

People regularly passed, especially on hot days, out and would be passed down to the St John's overhead.

The kids handle it fine. Most of them loved it but people would steer them away from the roughest areas.

In the sixties there were always plenty of people with calm heads who would make sure any hotheads didn't get carried away. Overall it was hot, rough and seaty but a huge amount of fun.

In the seventies, crowds got a lot less pleasant and very aggressive. Games between ourselves (or Everton) and Utd, Leeds, or Chelsea were regularly marked by violent clashes. Stabbings weren't uncommon although they are very rarely anywhere near the ground.

I stopped going regularly during the seventies, partly because of work but also because of the hatred and violence.

The all seaters today are certainly not as much fun as the sixties but vastly more pleasant than the seventies and early eighties.

Hey ED001.
With all the noise going around on safe standing, what is your view on the issue?
Should standing be brought back? Or is it too much of a risk still?


{Ed001's Note - it should never come back, there is no such thing as safe standing and you only have to ask paramedics about the amount of crush injuries they have to treat at events where crowds stand, rather than sit. People see it as the answer to all the issues of lack of atmosphere, even though it is not. Until stadiums stop being full of people who are too busy watching the game through a screen, or texting their mates etc instead of just getting involved in singing and shouting, the atmosphere will continue to be crap. It would have a far stronger effect on atmosphere if it was impossible to get wifi and mobile phone signals inside!}

1.) 25 Jun 2017 06:09:18
which means itll never happen ey ed? i don't see that changing for some time really, it is the internet age after all.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Sadly people would rather watch someone else living a life on a screen, rather than actually going outside and experiencing it for themselves.}

2.) 25 Jun 2017 07:16:32
The worst one of the lot is people filming games, I just don't understand it. Never been able to see the logic behind it.

{Ed001's Note - nor me mate. They are actively watching the screen, rather than it live. What on earth is that all about? People are so desperate to ensure other people know what they have been up to, they forget to actually enjoy the moment while they are there.}

3.) 25 Jun 2017 08:53:16
People going to any live event and filming it are morons and missing the point of actually being there, which is being there in the moment, not being able to relive it somewhere else later.

4.) 25 Jun 2017 09:51:47
Some of the best atmospheres I've been in have been at all-seaters.

5.) 25 Jun 2017 10:37:48
BVB's yellow wall is a massive all-standing spion kop stand and I never hear any bad things about it?

{Ed001's Note - just because you don't hear them, doesn't mean a thing.}

6.) 25 Jun 2017 10:47:03
And yes, all-standing can indeed partly solve the atmosphere problem. You get a better atmosphere when groups of mates are all together, something much more possible with safe standing as you're not allocated specific spots to stand in.

{Ed007's Note - You are still giving a specific seat number and spot to stand, it's not just a free for all where people just stand where they want. You get allocated a seat number just like anywhere else in the ground and unless your mates get season tickets next to you you're relying on the generosity of others to swap positions to let you all stand together.}

Me too Ron. Remember a panto of Peter Pan, starring Vanilla Ice as Captain Hook, as a personal favourite!



08 Mar 2017 05:08:31
I was watching some old matches and remember Benayoun being a decent player. Very Skillful.

Does he just look decent when watching the highlights or was he actually a very good player?

Sort of like a Lallana or Coutinho type player.



1.) 08 Mar 2017 06:43:46
He was quality, scored some big goals too.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 07:46:14
i Loved him.

3.) 08 Mar 2017 09:45:58
Very decent player. Flitted in and out of games a bit, but like Luis Garcia, could really shine.

4.) 08 Mar 2017 10:21:45
Genuinely good player.

5.) 08 Mar 2017 10:29:24
Bit of a hybrid of Couts and Lallana. He was harder working than Couts, but not as hardworking as Lallana, but he was also more gifted than Lallana but not as gifted as Coutinho.

Vastly under rated player was Yossi. We let him go at least 2 seasons early.

6.) 08 Mar 2017 11:29:52
Think Burkeyboy hit the nail on the head - he did flit in and out of games but was always capable of producing something significant. Think he was more consistent than Garcia overall - though Garcia was capable of producing a magical moment from nowhere Benayoun was more consistent in his contributions (though not as individually spectacular as Garcia) .

{Ed002's Note - Jerry Garcia is an all time favourite of mione.}

7.) 08 Mar 2017 11:47:05
He was a good player but a bit inconsistent. Sometimes he didn't fancy it.

8.) 08 Mar 2017 15:02:58
ed002 which grateful dead album did you prefer between workingman's dead or American beauty?

{Ed002's Note - American Beauty is the second best album ever made.}

9.) 08 Mar 2017 16:23:17
ed002 could you kindly let me know which is the 1st?, box of rain is one of the best songs ever written imo.

{Ed002's Note - Electric Music for The Mind and Body by Country Joe and The Fish Kenny. I thought everyone knew that. Interestingly, I shall be seeing the remnants of the Grateful Dead play in June (as "Dead & Company").}

10.) 08 Mar 2017 16:42:30
thanks for the reply ed002, appreciate it.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

11.) 08 Mar 2017 21:33:56
Benayoun was awesome. very intelligent player who could do almost anything with the ball at his feet.

12.) 09 Mar 2017 13:52:25
When he felt like it.

Now that you've mentioned Barca's interest I'm sure everybody would suddenly claim that he's a world beater and a must signing



{Ed002's Note - Probably.}

I take it your Medel Love in is still going strong ED001.
Remember your posts from back in the day, how hurt you were when Cardiff signed him and then when he signed for Inter after Cardiff were relegated.


{Ed001's Note - he has been just about Inter's only decent player since going there. I still believe we missed a trick badly and still need a player like that.}

You can buy all official Liverpool merchandise in India from Shopredlabel.
I doubt they have the new kits just yet. Wait for a few weeks and I'm sure they'll get it soon.

Wow that's might just be the worst thing I have ever read on this site. And we all know how much drivel is posted here.
Constructive criticism is alright but this is downright racism.
You are an embarrassment. Hope the poster gets banned for this.
