In regards to Coutinho - did he not contribute or give up his bonus (by handing in transfer request) to make his dream move to Barcelona happen?

I read somewhere at the time it was close to £11m of his savings/ future earnings

If he really wants to come back - he would need to do something similar in my opinion - by reducing his wages by more than half of what Barcelona pay him or based on his recent injury record - be on a pay as you play deal.

{Ed0666's Note - pay as you play? You are kidding me right?

Ed0666 - what i mean is we pay him a base salary which is low - but pay him bonuses based on making the matchday squad and more if he makes the first 11 or an appearance on the pitch.

25 Aug 2021 17:06:14
why would he agree to that?

25 Aug 2021 17:14:47
If he had any sense of decency he’d turn up for free, a la Fernando Redondo.

25 Aug 2021 17:29:30
I love this "he should take a pay cut rubbish" that does be spouted on here. Hands up how many here would take a pay cut voluntarily? None. If he's on huge wages that's Barcelona's problem and I personally don't see why he should do himself out of money just to help them or please folk on here.

Grow up Victor, and Ox in fairness! Maybe Divock might actually score ONE goal this year. And people wonder why klopp does be hesitant to make subs in games.

{Ed0666's Note - why would he accept those terms when he’s on circa £250k a week? Seriously mate come on think before you post.

25 Aug 2021 18:07:21
Just maybe because he was a lying little runt, who has suddenly had an epiphany and now realises how wrong he was. £100k a week is hardly going to change his life one little bit. There are millions of people who actually realise it is better to be happy than have extra money in the bank.

25 Aug 2021 18:27:03
250k a week OMFG I really can’t believe we are thinking about it if he’s actually on that. He will be a bench warmer at best.

25 Aug 2021 18:27:08
If he’s as “desperate” to escape his alleged “Barcelona hell”, then surely he’d take playing for free at the club he so allegedly loves in order to escape it, this alleged love as according to his agent. The man literally thought he was bigger than Liverpool Football Club when he downed tools to engineer his move. I’m not certain that deserves anything less than contempt, he certainly isn’t deserving of a heroes welcome.

Say what you like about Origi but at least he’s not a snake.

And he’s actually contributed to winning big trophies for us, unlike Coutinho.

25 Aug 2021 18:45:54
The apology should read
“Dear reds, I’m sorry for faking injuries and taking hundreds of thousands of pounds out of your club in wages in order to force a move away to Barcelona’s bench, I want to give all that money back to the city/ community through charity and food banks then curl one in from the edge of the box against United”
- coutinho
P. S “I never won a trophy for Liverpool and am happy to play in the Papa Johns pizza tournament with the u21s”.

{Ed0666's Note - brilliant 😂

25 Aug 2021 21:12:34
If that was the case Markp everyone would just sign for Liverpool. You want to be loved, have the best European nights ever and comebacks that no club can come close to? Come to LFC, forget the wages. if only.

25 Aug 2021 21:42:52
No they wouldn’t IR. But he claims to love the club. Messi claims to love Barcelona etc etc. They just spout nonsense. I also said £100k a week which I assume these days is enough to leave on, with bread being a quid a loaf and all that.

25 Aug 2021 22:17:21
So where does it stop? There are loads of footballers on a lot more than Coutinho. Maybe Henderson should have taken a pay cut on his new contract? He's on good money and he loves the club right?

25 Aug 2021 23:10:16
Couts contributed plenty to the club lads. We sold him, bought players with the money and won the PL. We should be rolling the red carpet for him. Buy him is what I say. sell him again and see if we win another! 😅.

25 Aug 2021 21:18:29
ed0666 I just looked up his wages and it says his on £146k a week around on a few web sites then on another over £300k.
if he is on the higher wage I think he would take a pay cut just to end his nightmare of a time his had there. I think he would like to get his family back near Firminho fabinho and Alissons. Am sure one of the biggest reasons was family why he moved there to a spanish speaking country but Naymar left nearly straight away and I think he was another big reason to want to move there. But things could not have gone worse for him there.
But saying that ed I don't want him nothing to do with how he left I just don't think he is what we need if we could sell Naby then I think there would be more of a case for him. I think if we are going to sign a midfielder we need a combative player the only 2 in the squad are Henderson Fabinho and Milner and with Henderson and Fabinho injury record and Milner's age I think that is more of a concern. Attacking midfielder players Thiago Ox Naby Jones and Elliott and even Firminho might play there a bit this season to get all forwards in.

{Ed0666's Note - hey mate if you got a spare 3 hours weve just discussed what the points you make at nauseam in the SEE YOU NEXT THURSDAY Podcast which should be out later today.

26 Aug 2021 09:15:47
There should be caps for transfers, wages and especially the C.V. on the game, agents, and people wonder why the "big" sides wanted a break away euro league, greedy players and agents but its all hush hush now.

26 Aug 2021 07:41:48
Cheers Ed0666 I will give it listen.

{Ed0666's Note - only if you’re a glutton for punishment or can’t sleep otherwise there’s far better things to do in life mate.

If i was Divock i doubt i'd be doing anything snakey either, i'd be thanking me lucky stars everyday. No, scratch that if i was Divock i'd probably actually rather leave a club im nowhere near good enough for and try and actually PLAY FOOTBALL somewhere else instead of blocking pathways for young players who are already better than me. Lovely fella though apparently.
