Agree0 Disagree0

It goes up with every post.

Dembele wants €850’000. Haaland wants £500’000. Mbappe wants over £650’000, I’d say he’s following the market. He’d probably get it if he left on a free.

13 Jan 2022 21:34:13
Blimey VVVV you really are in the know. You even took the time to mess around with converting different currencies. Can you tell me what Bellingham wants in Drachma now please?

13 Jan 2022 21:41:52
Well tonight’s a glimpse of the future!

13 Jan 2022 21:59:56
@VVVV 😁😁😁 can you factor in agent’s fees / payments, percentage of wage covered by sponsorships, incentives, bonuses and the other stuff - you seem to have a comprehensive set of data as to player’s financial requirements. By the way, I got the same numbers reading this forum and the Daily Mail 😁😁😁.

13 Jan 2022 22:21:06
To be fair I actually agree with VVVV this time. The top players are paid the top money, we can't compete with the mega rich teams financially.

I don't see our owners paying salah what he wants (or at least what the papers are claiming he wants) .

I also think salah knows this and even if he says he doesn't want to leave I really don't think he would care if he left for giant money.

I have a terrible feeling he will go on a free and we have no money to bring in ANY player, let alone a replacement for salah.

We always read about mbappe and haland but let's be honest, we couldn't of outbid Newcastle for wood even if we wanted to.

13 Jan 2022 22:49:48
Name one player we can afford who would adequately replace him West Derby, who we can afford. Just one. I’ll wait.

14 Jan 2022 01:01:44
Kun Aguero.

14 Jan 2022 01:25:07
We’d struggle to get a whip round for Ken Aguero.

{Ed0666's Note - I think the real Aguero could have done a job tonight for us even with a dodgy ticker.

14 Jan 2022 02:21:29
Is any player worth >200k/ week? Technically speaking NO but the reality is, clubs are paying insane money for players. Now, based on the insane world of football, is Salah worth 400k/ week? Absolutely! We know that he'll easily get that or more if he moves to a richer club.

Now, from a club's point of view, should they break the bank to pay a player that sort of money? I think if you want to be a successful club, you have to invest and you have to keep up with the rest. If LFC wants to be one of the best clubs in the world, they should buy and invest accordingly.

If they want to do a Leicester or Ajax, then don't be surprised that they cash in on players after winning some titles. As the saying goes, you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

{Ed0666's Note - It would be an extremely brave board not to give Salah the contract he wants within reason. Regardless of the eye watering financials of it. Of course they will do it if it makes sense to them but if they don’t then I’m sure they’ll own the decision and move well all have to wipe out tears and move on.

14 Jan 2022 03:39:59
We have to give him what he wants as we are completely dependent on him as we speak. This is our own doings.

14 jan 2022 03:47:49
i have no idea who might replace salah vvvv, i had no idea who would replace suarez when he left or wijnaldum either, it’s not my skill set.

i will say that i’d like to see a number of players come in, particularly young bellingham, but that is because i like them as players and i readily admit i have no idea if the would fit into the manager’s plans.

to be honest i don’t think it helps though when posters read unauthenticated numbers on social media outlets and use them as fact to support their opinion that this or that is going to happen or, as in your repetitive refrain, that something can’t or won’t ever happen.

one final thought, as i said in a previous post (to which you didn’t reply) whilst we can’t afford to match city, chelsea, real madrid, psg etc we can, and do, make the occasional exception - vvd, ali as recent examples, so maybe if salah goes we buy someone …… the funny thing is, it doesn’t even have to be like for like and another way of looking at is might be that if salah goes we amend the system we use?

{Ed0666's Note - good point mate maybe a change of system may be in the offing well a tweaking anyway.

14 Jan 2022 07:37:02
WDW brings up a point that I often ponder myself about how many times we see stuff taken from social media and posted on here. How it's taken by some as stone cold fact and then used to fuel an anti player/ FSG tirade.
That's how certain newspapers manage to stay alive, they are dependant on people believing anything they read.
It's all very entertaining though during an otherwise drab transfer window.

14 Jan 2022 08:57:30
There might be a distinct possibility that FSG allow Salah to run down his contract and he leaves for free in 18 months, they do cost/ risk analysis on every player, Can and Wijnaldum met similar faiths in contract disputes. Simple question, would fans be satisfied to see Mo run down the remainder of his contract, bare in mind it almost coincides with the end date of Jurgens contract?

14 Jan 2022 10:45:22
I’ll answer that one WDW. We only made those signings off the back of selling Coutinho for absurd money to a desperate Barcelona. The only player remotely worth that kind of money in our squad is TAA. Not Salah, not Mane, not VVD and not Becker. And I’d contend that most would think it’s completely unpalatable to sell him.

And as the land lies, there’s not a lot of money out there barring the oil baron teams, Real or United. So other than selling TAA to any of City/ Chelsea/ PSG/ Real/ United/ Newcastle we have little to no hope of raising the funds to adequately rebuild to challenge for the title in future years other than hoping young players turn good, which probability wise is not in our favour. We got lucky once, it appears we used up all our luck in one go.

As it goes, we’ve no chance of Bellingham, the idiots online that even link us to him are delusional. Money talks and bullsh*t walks, and we don’t have the money, ed002 has dismissed any notion of Bellingham and repeatedly said where our interest is (Sanches/ Traore) and I’ve heard that from other sources too, which is concerning as for multiple reasons they’re not good enough.

And certainly if the suggestion is selling Salah to enable Bellingham’s purchase, I’d fail to see the logic as we’d still be having to find 30+ goals a season from somewhere. I’m still of the opinion we’re seeing a managed decline.

14 Jan 2022 10:58:30
Give him the money,

Put the ticket prices up 50% to cover.

Don't let kids in cheaper than adults.

Release, Adrian milner and origi to cover his wages.

No summer signings


14 Jan 2022 13:57:53
A managed decline led by the manager. He has 2 years left he needs to start throwing the owners under the bus if need be.

14 Jan 2022 13:58:33
Spot on, OMM, Flash and WDW. The Goalposts keep changing with Salah's alleged demands and if it changes so much, could it mean that nobody really knows? This question clearly never comes up.

I could do dembeles job at 100th if the price.

15 Jan 2022 00:50:32
It’s a simple world isn’t it VVVV? We sell Coutinho, we buy Ali and VVD, simple.

Salah scores 30 goals, Salah doesn’t play anymore, we don’t score 30 goals, simple.

Most dogs have four legs, most tables have four legs therefore most dogs are tables, simple.

We should all take turns running the club eh? I’ll book you down for the July for the next transfer window - your financial wizardry is obviously just what we need.

15 Jan 2022 08:45:04
What I’d like someone to explain is the term ‘managed decline’ and then to tell me why they think that’s really what FSG are doing because…. that makes no financial sense whatsoever….

15 Jan 2022 08:54:44
WDW most dogs are made of wood! Is that why they bark?

15 Jan 2022 11:41:21
Dembele will not get anything close to £850,000 a week. that's just nonsense.

15 Jan 2022 11:44:43
Coutinho was sold for circa £125 million. Liverpool purchased over £300 million in the 2 seasons. It wasnt just about the "coutinho" money.
