Hi Eds,

Thanks again for all your hard work during this mad time.

Before all this I believe the plan was to move the Premier League transfer window back in line with the rest of Europe, so I'm assuming in that way individual leagues hold some power in when they open and close it.

. with such a difference between leagues across Europe at the moment, i. e. we could see Spain, England, Germany finishing at different times whilst France has already finished. Is there any collaborative planning between the leagues and UEFA over the dates of the transfer window?

If it is staying the usual dates of June (July 1st officially) to end of August, how will that be affected by leagues still finishing and European competitions running towards to end of the window?


{Ed002's Note - Leagues have to meet certain criteria regarding the length (maximum 12 weeks) of the transfer window but can figure the dates out themselves. The Premier League changed the timing of the window because they were arrogant enough to think everyone would follow - they didn't and now it is switching back. The clubs will give their opinion next Thursday when they are due to discuss this and closure of the season if it cannot be completed. The other leagues across Europe have the position that domestic transfers can take pace as soon as the last game is played and can can continue until the individual international windows are shut and are looking at a shorter window. At this point in time the dates on the table in France, Germany, Spain and Italy are August 3 to October 2.}

Amazing, thanks for the detailed response. Do you think the Premier League will table a similar window?

It will be interesting to see when things starting moving in the market, I imagine slowly it will be quiet, but agents are probably itching to get things going.

ed002 do you think the top 5 leagues should try to get there leagues to start and finish at the same time then the transfer window would be easier to get in line. we seem to start before most of the other big leagues then finish before them the champions league final was a good point last season nearly 3 weeks between games.

{Ed002's Note - These are unusual circumstances so it is not possible now. The issue with the leagues is the number of games played varies, the winter break and the arrogance of the Premier League.}

ed002 4 of the 5 leagues have 20 teams so its only Bundesliga that have 18 and even with the carabao cup we do gain a few games with are Christmas and new year games. Am sure we started 18/ 19 season 2 weeks before most leagues but finished 2 weeks before them. is it hard for us to start later because of the carabao cup 2nd round seems to start before some leagues start. if so do you think its time for that to go like most other countries and have just 1 cup.

{Ed002's Note - Right - so the number of games vary per season as I said. If you compare how many games Leicester played in the season they won the league with how many games Manchester City or Chelsea played it will be around 10 less because of European competition. There are two cups to play for, replays again the likes of Plymouth etc., plus Liverpool are looking to work with a proposal for a pre-season tournament which requires the first team to be played - and it soon mounts up. Remember there is a third European tournament coming as well.}

Would liverpool be doing it to try to boost income ed? I can't see the logic in it otherwise with everything going on.

{Ed002's Note - Yes but other sidea are not interested.}

There’s a third European tournament coming?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it may slip.}

Is to much focus of transfers based around the windows i think they should shorten it as most targets are identified and agreements in place before the window even opens they should impose tighter restrictions on contacting clubs and players outside the window.

{Ed002's Note - Save Klipperty a great deal in his phone bills.}
