Apparently nabys been injured on international duty, does anybody know anymore?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You mean the bit part player with questionable Work Permit status with a bruise on his shin?}

26 Jun 2019 18:56:52
Doubt he was ever truly fit and rushed back, hopefully he recovers for a full preseason and proves he’s more than a bit part player!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - And gets his Work Permit sorted out.}

26 Jun 2019 19:51:29
How is he able to play without a work permit?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is not.}

26 Jun 2019 20:07:58
So the club played him illegally last season then?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You appear to be making stuff up. Just forget it.}

26 Jun 2019 20:11:28
Please correct me if any of this is wrong Ed002.

But I read an article recently that concerned some potential upcoming issues with Keita's work permit, primarily with regards to the number of games he played. Assurances were given over the percentage of first team games he would play and he is well short of that. Liverpool are likely to say that the player was injured for the vast majority of the time he wasn't playing, and this may be enough to convince the authorities. However further issues may arise if he continues to not play next season as the excuse that he is injured will not wash forever unless his injury is 100% genuine.

Like I said. Please correct me if any of this is wrong, I do not profess to be an expert at all.

All the best.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The issue is he only has a T2 permit and needs to pass the English exam.}

26 Jun 2019 20:21:48
Hmmmmmm interesting so if it went against him wat would outcome be, sold, loaned out contract terminated?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has asked for an extension.}

26 Jun 2019 20:40:32
Wasn't making stuff up Ed. Was just trying to figure out how he played if his work permit was questionable as you said. Genuinely didn't know a person had to pass an English exam. For some reason I'd assumed in a multi cultural environment like football that this would not apply. Every day is a school day.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Nobody has said it is “questionable” - certainly not me.}

26 Jun 2019 20:46:12
Seems about right for this country. Lots of people can't speak English yet are allowed to remain, but we'll kick out one that pays a hefty amount of tax.

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Rubbish.}

26 Jun 2019 21:00:03
Your reply to the original post "the bit part player with questionable work permit status and a bruise on his shin". Though I do agree with the part that he should be able to speak the lingo. It should be a requirement before a permit is granted.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - is why the rules are as they are.}

26 Jun 2019 21:08:32
It’s a wonder Stevie Gerrard was never made to take an English speaking exam. ????.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 21:11:59
Ridiculous too given the amount of down time he has that he couldn't learn the language. My 10 year old speaks French reasonably well from 15 minutes a day on an app on his iPad.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He has had two years - but then again he never learned German properly either.}

26 Jun 2019 21:23:45
Arrogance and laziness of some footballers is astounding. Had a full year knowing he was going to England to at least be passive in the language. From reading what Perez says about Bale at Madrid he hasn't learned Spanish yet. I personally find that astounding that after 6 years a person wouldn't be fluent.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is true about bale as well.}

26 Jun 2019 15:40:43
Ed002 any new info on timo Werner as with all betting sites he's been removed from the transfer listing. has he decided to stay put or has someone snapped him up? Ps hope you enjoying the sun. ???? and keeping hydrated ????.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new with TW - Bayern won't pay the asking price. RBL will look for a new deal and the player may decide to sit out his contract. I might go to the pub for an hour in a minute or two and hydrate a little. Enjoy your day.}

Where is the boundary for up north? Last time I checked people were calling Birmingham up north.

Sheffield is the most southerly northern point - as a resident of the nabouring Midlands dwelling Chesterfield.

Ed002 can you shed any light on any potential 1st team in comings that may have progressed since you last gave an update. I appreciate things don't happen overnight. I was just wondering if any actually discussions had taken place with any clubs yet.


Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new that I am aware of. I have explained where I know of interest.}

26 Jun 2019 11:48:27
Good morning Eds. Liverpool as a club, since the Van Dijk incident or maybe before, I can't fully remember, tend to come out in the media and deny interest in players that we are being linked to.
Lines such as rubbish or no interest or agents whipping up interest have all been fed to the media, local in particular.
Is this a response to tapping up issues and showing that the club may have learned from this? It seems to occur when reporting comes to a head and selling clubs maybe thinking 'where has this all come from? ' Liverpool then tend to rubbish claims before any allegations are made. I'm not just talking about this window. although it's happened with Pépé, De Ligt so far.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of this at all, sorry. The Pepe situation is that Liverpool contacted Lille directly as a result of an accusation that they had spoken directly to the player.}

26 Jun 2019 13:43:27
We didn't tap him up, did we, ed002? At least I hope we've (Klopp especially) learnt our lesson and haven't done so.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that being the case. As far as I am concerned there have been recent discussions with three sides two of which have made offers - one multiple offers. None of this involves Liverpool.}

26 Jun 2019 14:21:37
Thanks ed, it's good to hear we haven't broken the rules this time around.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I don't think so.}

Obviously never seen Van den Berg play other than highlights but I wonder if he might take the Joe Gomez approach and start out as right/ left back cover? Interestingly, Berg started out as a winger before converting to centre back. Would explain why he looks ridiculously quick for a centre back. Interesting signing. Exciting for the future, for sure. Hopefully see him in and around the first team squad in the coming years. Welcome VDB!

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 14:57:37
Can’t imagine many go wing to cb! Hopefully means he’s comfortable on the ball if he does sign!

Looks like we will sell out our allocation for the Bradford game, hopefully it helps the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

Champ Man Legends Part 6: Jonas Lunden

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Champ Man Legends Part 6: Jonas Lunden

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 10:11:45
Thanks ed I really love these articles as FM made my childhood. I remember the Swedish players were gems and I recall one version of the game where I was signing player from the MLS. My cousin told me recently that the players were made up! Do you remember or know anything about this!? Oscar Montalvan was a belter of a CB you signed him for 250k and immediately worth 5 mil haha same can be said about Eddie Johnson up top.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - your cousin is wrong, the made up player was To Madeira. The MLS ones were real.

This article was so hard to do, Lunden just spent a lifetime in obscurity pretty much!}

26 Jun 2019 10:42:29
Do you have Ismaeil Yakubu (Barnet) on your list?
Also, playing on Xbox 2002/ 3 edition, a chap called Wes Kilgannon scored bucketloads. Played for some Welsh side but can't recall which.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have added them now, it is not really known as a console game to be honest so all the ones in the list have come from the PC variant. Not sure how different it is on Xbox.}

26 Jun 2019 11:02:00
Anyone remember lma manager on ps1?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, it wasn't very good but LMA had Alan Hansen on the cover. I like Player-Manager because it was so in-depth with regards to tactics. Never bothered with the player bit though.}

26 Jun 2019 13:35:21
Lma was proper limited but me and my pals loved it. One mate, the only one who couldn't kick a ball (naturally we told him he was a good goalkeeper. Should have seen him diving for shots that were straoght at him, indescribable) was effing brilliant at it. I thought it was just random but although he couldn't play he was a genius on lma.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - was there really any skill to it?}

26 Jun 2019 15:42:32
Chris Bart-Williams, the gem of Cham Man 93 (I think) . He would score 60+ goals for me every season, before jetting off to Italy.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 16:32:53
Jesus Championship manager. Would've been about 95/ 95 I guess you could put in a player have it excepted then review the video change it to a £1 and it was still excepted.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 20:53:04
Ed, what about,
Richie Partridge
Lional Morgan
And most of all,
Supat Rungratsamee!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Richie Partridge is done here the other 2 are on the list.

26 Jun 2019 21:18:03
To be honest ED, console or PC, any game that allows me to sell off all my rubbish to Man Utd at inflated prices whilst selling their best players for peanuts and sending them to relegation and anonymity works for me!

Morning Ed,

I know he plays for City and all but Silva, it'll be a shame to see him not playing in this league after next year, he's unreal I just love watching him play. For me he is ONE OF the best the premier league has ever seen. I'm guessing he'll end up back in Spain?

Thank you mate, hope you have a good day.

Agree2 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he very nearly went home when his daughter was sick and he missed a lot of time a couple of seasons ago. He is truly a great player. One of my favourite all-time footballers.}

26 Jun 2019 08:11:35
Thanks Ed, much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome P-r, just wondering how many people share the Ladapo dream?}

26 Jun 2019 08:30:53
Agreed Ed, he's a legend in my eyes, it'd be interesting if you could do an article on him when he retires mate?

Agree2 3Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he is not retiring mate, just leaving City.}

26 Jun 2019 08:40:37
Oh I see Ed, my bad mate, I automatically assumed with his age he would be retiring but I'm glad he's not, it'll be interesting to see where he ends up.

Agree2 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Have you looked on the Manchester City page?}

26 Jun 2019 08:45:46
Morning Ed001,
Thanks for the info.

Regarding Newcastle Utd,
Lot of other Nufc players have expressed the same feelings. Few of them will be open to offers now that Rafa has left the club.
But hardly surprising, as most of them only came to the Toon because of him, the only problem is, is that if they are sold, then the money will be straight into Ashleys pocket, 2019/ 20 season has relegation written all over it for NUFC, unless a takeover happens.

About Silva,

What a servant for City and the PL. I will always remember that pass from him to Dzeko when they smashed United 6-1 at Old Trafford. What an assist! His ability with the ball is amazing. One of the classiest players I’ve ever seen. But for some reason constantly gets overlooked.

ED001, would you take him in your premier league XI of all time?

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Silva would be one of the first names on the teamsheet mate. He walks into a Prem XI imo.}

26 Jun 2019 09:36:11
Ed, I remember we were linked with silva a lot before he went to city, we’re we ever in the running for him? Would have been an amazing signing!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - yes, Rafa set up a move for him and Villa but Prick Parry pulled the plug on it because he is an utter bell and decided it was too expensive.}

26 Jun 2019 09:48:19
No mate, I haven't, it's as dead as a doornail over there, unless City have suddenly gained a few fans?

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It has all been explained there.}

26 Jun 2019 09:43:30
Great read Ed001.

Totally agree although you re Parry, yet another example of previous owners holding us back.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers Drogie. I am being reminded constantly what a complete arse Parry was as I am researching an article on him that was requested by a couple of people. He really knows f all about the game and it is sickening that such a moron is being paid big money to act as an advisor to teams around the world. The only use that bewigged gimp has is in doing the exact opposite of everything he says. He has lied so many times about his time that there are more contradictions out there in the press about what happened while he was CEO than occur in time travel TV serials. One thing is for sure, whenever he speaks it is just bull to hoist the blame on anyone else for the way he robbed LFC blind for years.}

26 Jun 2019 10:03:01
I am looking forward to the Parry article ed, he was one of the main men whilst I started following Liverpool but didn't really know much about his role until after he left. But from seeing your remarks from you previously he seems one of the main reasons for our malaise during the 90/ 00's.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - oh he was. I have still not forgiven him for being the reason G&H got in, as he got a nice little payout for choosing them.}

26 Jun 2019 10:27:08
Just goes to show that 1 or 2 of the wrong people in key positions can bring down a club. I knew Parry was incompetent but didn't realise to what degree.

We should all feel really lucky to have the set up and squad we have now. I don't know much about the people upstairs in the club at the moment but they seem to be generally doing the right things.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Moores and Parry between were fully responsible for all the club's problems. G&H actually improved things when they took over, it was just a lack of money, and the handicap of still having Moores and Parry at the club, that meant things got so bad. When those two can come in and make immediate improvements, that is when you know things were a mess! G&H knew nothing about football, yet they were better custodians than 2 men who claim to love LFC.}

26 Jun 2019 11:18:31
Thanks ed01

Lol@ Rotherham.

David silva. Undoubtedly a premier league legend. Instrumental in their record breaking season. When kdb was getting all the plaudits (legs like paintbrushs, stick to the defencive analysis martin)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - how can you laugh at Rotherham? They are the dream!!!}

26 Jun 2019 12:28:15
I first saw Silva on a raucous night at Anfield in the 2012 League Cup Semi final and was instantly and deeply impressed, so composed and never put a pass out of place.
I agree on his PL legend status, great player.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 13:28:04
Cheers Ed2, I'll have a look later on today when I'm home.

The only time i've come close to dreaming of Rotherham was when i was in medical need of a cigarette. Ot wasnt Rotherham but it was close.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 15:40:20
Im guessing G&H will be touched upon within the article but I won't forget watching sky sports news when Fenways takeover was under way. Weren't we days away from administration because of the debt the club had? Just shows the massive mountain we have climbed since and why the current owners aren't perfect I don't think I could ever criticise the job they have done for us.
