Delighted with Thiago and the apparently imminent arrival of Jota, but where's the money coming from?

Are confident enough of offloading Grujic, Wilson, Karius, maybe Origi or Wijnaldum that we're pressing ahead knowing we'll ultimately break even (ish) . Or are we borrowing?

Or is this a bad question that'll give an Ed a headache?

Why are you trying to kill the buzz mate? We’ve won everything in last couple of years playing great football. Why does money concern you? there are better people at the club than us to take care of that. Enjoy the ride or you will miss it.

Trust Edwards and fsg. They know what they’re doing.

It is called Creative Accountancy from Fenway.

This has me worries that some "shock" deal will come out of this, and Mane's leaving.

5.) 19 Sep 2020 02:45:00
How can you be concerned with money?
Win the Champions league - spend nothing
Win the league - spend less than the competitors.
Liverpool have access to the cash to buy whoever they want without coming anywhere close to distress.
Also, who cares if they borrow? Every business borrows money to better itself. (LFC has always been a business btw)

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not sure we have the money to buy whoever without stress at all Mr Risdale.

6.) 19 Sep 2020 02:57:01
People need to be clearer on terms of how transfers are agreed before questioning financial sense. Thiago will only cost us 5mil this year and 5mil each of following 3 summer. Jota is not signing on the condition we pay a big lump now. he's going to be on a 5 year contract and because Liverpool are strong now clubs will be easier to agree to future bonuses or add ons. We see our players winning individual awards, top of goal scoring lists, club titles looking more common so those add on payments are easier to negotiate. Apparently we only more than 20 mil for thiago if he wins either league, CL or ballon d'or in his contract length so jota likely to have clauses as no chance we pay any big money this year. We will sell players which is obvious but it was silly to think we had to wait to get a certain amount which was then allowing us to spend instantly. For example it was possible that coutinho winning the European cup at any stage during his Barcelona contract length meant we would receive a lump of payment that was not guaranteed in the figure that was publically named as total cost. The likes of Danny ings having such a strong season and reaching accolades etc may be reasons behind us getting earlier than expected income. Jota will likely be balanced in our books with the likes of Wilson, shaqiri, origi or Brewster now seemingly on the market. With 2 or even 3 not being needed they will easily pay the jota cost and more. Hoever brings in 10mil as does lovren so 20 mil at least income for rarely needed defenders.

It's not so simple as thinking we can't deal with transfers until the minute we officially anounce a sale and just get that price immediately in the bank to spend. We've obviously been planning on thiago and jota for a period of time with realistic prediction of what players will leave and earn us so financial impact will never be a wishful gamble. We moan and get frustration but we never have any clue to what is happening within so always presume that activity in the public eye represents the activity in real life. Why would we actually operate under that strategy openly? Every other club would get negotiation strenght if that was so obvious. Bayern would be able to be stubborn if knowing that thiago was wanted only after gini for example left and we were in need for his replacement. If we tried to immediately offer decent money for a CB after lovren left clubs could have held out for more. It's smart business that we have prioritised the areas we weren't yet desperate to fill. I expect we now focus on shipping out the weaker players who thiago and jota will take upgrade while adding another defender at some point when the price best suits us instead oflooking forced to replace our defensive outgoings.

{Ed0666's Note - you took my advice well done sir and Thankyou.

Christos, obviously haven’t frequented the page much recently. Ed002 has repeatedly explained that we had pre spent much of our tournament winnings. I am a little concerned with where this money is coming from but I am also not Liverpool’s accountant, wish I was. Any recruiters lurking I’m fully qualified, come get me ;) . Either way, I trust the club to be doing the right thing and I imagine we are confident in sales of out of favour players rather than Mane.

10.) 20 Sep 2020 00:23:11
Cotsi, it isn't possible to pre-spend money. Businesses invest according to their anticipated cashflow. ED002 is wrong.
The windfalls from winning the CL and EPL might lower the debt % but the winnings certainly weren't "prespent" as that isn't how any of this works.

Really pleased Milner has done that. He embodies everything Liverpool has become. One of our best.

6.) 14 Dec 2019 04:02:28
Does he get 10 ribenas as goal bonus now?

7.) 14 Dec 2019 10:02:47
Am I mistaken or he told he is not drinking anymore Ribena? 😅.

8.) 14 Dec 2019 10:36:46
This is excellent news very happy. Hopefully the younger talent can lean from a true professional of the game.



26 Nov 2014 18:43:22
Team: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Lambert

Be interesting to see how Gerrard and Lucas are deployed. I'm assuming it'll be a diamond with Gerrard at the tip and Lucas at the base, but I'm worried that it'll be both of them as DMs which didn't exactly work against West Ham.

Norwich or Bristol Rovers in the Cup then.

At Anfield.

- Something Red -

1.) 08 Jan 2024 20:05:28
The quadruple is on.

2.) 08 Jan 2024 20:14:49
Home draw ??.

3.) 08 Jan 2024 21:11:56
By the end of the fourth round there will be at least 6 EPL teams out, if we can beat Norwich and get a favorable 5th round tie again at home it could become another very exciting for the Reds, below are the potential EPL 4th round ties.

West Ham or Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest or Blackpool
Chelsea vs Aston Villa
Tottenham vs Manchester City
Crystal Palace or Everton vs Luton or Bolton
Sheffield United vs Brighton
Fulham vs Newcastle

Apparently Man City have never won at the news Spurs ground.

4.) 08 Jan 2024 22:39:30
Nice draw for sure. Spurs v City? Tasty, as well. Villa v Chelsea? Mouth-watering. Can't wait.

5.) 09 Jan 2024 00:11:43
If Norwich get through apparently we have a loan deal with Suarez lined up for just that one game as he is keen to add to his 12 goals against them, the deal is said to include a mouth guard.

6.) 09 Jan 2024 07:43:19
What happened to the urban legend that City always get the easy draws.

Perhaps with the Royal Mail scandal they’ve ran out of brown envelopes.

That just the Champions League, JK23. Not enough prize money in domestic cups. Whos the weakest team in the CL knockout stages? Probably Copenhagen. I’ll say no more.

I don't care if we only win 3 competitions as long as one is the league.

Can we give this a rest now and focus on arsenal? How did we not beat West Ham 8-0 will be the next moan. Unreal.

2.) 23 Dec 2023 14:53:34
I had told them to park the bus but they didn't listen. They thought they could play open vs WH cos they saw LFC smoke them 5-1. Had Utd parked the bus at WH, they would definitely have gotten a result. They didn't so well, they got spanked.

3.) 23 Dec 2023 16:15:00
@Something coz we were rubbish against them. It’s that simple.

Thought Elliot was class tonight.

- Something Red -

1.) 21 Sep 2023 22:44:58
SR, some think he was poor, tho. For me like most of the team, it was a mixed performance.

2.) 22 Sep 2023 00:43:43
Gravenberch looks special.

3.) 22 Sep 2023 05:36:23
And Endo looks fantastic Top G.

4.) 22 Sep 2023 07:36:02
I’d say very average personally habibi not sure he’s cut out for the prem but I hope he proves me wrong.

5.) 22 Sep 2023 09:14:17
TopG, Endo is still adjusting to the way the team plays and to what Klopp is asking him to do. Not bothered with his perf. this early in the season even tho, I can see some flashes of his ability to play the DM role for now.

6.) 22 Sep 2023 09:37:06
Do you think Endo will get much game time, Oli? I think there are a lot of players that will play more than Endo.

7.) 22 Sep 2023 09:59:30
I think Endo is probably the most specialist player we have at the club, and by that I mean I think he's been recruited not to play the majority of the games, but for specific games where we face specific threats. That, and from what we've heard about his character and attitude, make him a worthwhile signing.

It's a bit like our forwards. Nunez will play against teams that suit his style, Jota will play in others, as will gakpo. Diaz and Salah should be playing against everyone unless it's for a rest, as they are clearly our most effective wide players.

8.) 22 Sep 2023 12:27:09
Not slating him by all means but he hasn’t shown much so far. Very similar to Lucas leivas early days and fab also struggled for the first six months so hopefully he comes good, gravenberch seems to have everything and was constantly bombing into the box something we have missed imo.

9.) 22 Sep 2023 13:28:37
What are people expecting when Endo plays? He seems to be getting the “is he makelele” standard of analysis.

Think we need to see it for what it is. Experienced CDM and a squad player.

10.) 22 Sep 2023 14:17:25
@Faith, he is a bridge from Fabs to time when the heir apparent is ready - might be Baj, might be Andre. He also gives us solid cover for a couple of other positions if the need arises - CB, CM.

11.) 22 Sep 2023 15:26:11
Rigsby for me, Im not arsed about how much game time he gets cos at his age, he should not be playing every week. He was brought in to do the job. He is a very experienced, specialist DM who knows the position inside out, without a doubt. He is highly rated in the Bundesliga, as well. That is what we need as we start the season.

The only thing we have to hope foor now is that he can play the position the exact way Klopp wants him to play it, like Fab, Hendo and Lucas did who all struggled before they mastered the position. That is the most important thing for me. Not bothered about any of that other stuff nor who plays ahead of who at this early stage of the season.

12.) 22 Sep 2023 15:27:54
TopG, your point on Gravenberch is very interesting. Also, with Klopp playing the double pivot with Macca and Szobo at times during games, Endo may not even need to play that much anyway.



26 Aug 2023 16:48:48
Pray for Ed025 lads.

- Something Red -

Everton have been flirting with disaster for a while, seems only fair to go all the way now.

2.) 26 Aug 2023 18:20:02
Not looking good. No goals scored two home defeats. They have a couple of games they need to be winning in the next month. Feeling for Ed for sure.

3.) 26 Aug 2023 17:34:02
I truly feel for Ed25
This could be the season that Everton go down. Personally, I want them to stay up, for Ed25 and the city of Liverpool.

I for one, will be praying for Everton, which by default will include the best Ed of them all.

{Ed025's Note - you may need to get to church very quickly JLCBM, we cant buy a point or even a goal for love nor money mate, long season ahead for us i feel, cheers my friend..

4.) 26 Aug 2023 18:02:30
Honestly if it was a toss-up between getting relegated and having to put up with Sean Dyche football and finishing 17th every year I’d rather just rip the plaster off and go down.

{Ed025's Note - its different when its your team thomas, Dyche is not the problem mate..

5.) 26 Aug 2023 18:44:05
I agree with Dyche not being the problem mate but I don’t think he’s the solution either. I don’t really know what I’d suggest though, probably too risky to replace him at the moment.

6.) 26 Aug 2023 19:23:28
I would bring back big dunc and get him to be player manager. He'd sort that team out and chip in more goals than your forward line, even at his age. People say it's not down to Duche, but who is it down to? I don't think he's doing you any favours.

7.) 26 Aug 2023 19:46:30
I’m sure Ed0025 will correct me but the irony is I think Everton are probably playing better football so far this year. They just can’t take their chances.

Wasted glorious opportunities in the games so far this season.

Which is either a) a good thing cos if the goals come they will be absolutely fine or b) the finishing doesn’t improve and they don’t keep creating chances in which case it really is auf wiedersehen.

{Ed025's Note - against Fulham and Wolves we played decent imo Wassa, but as you say we wont win games if we dont score, if we can get Beto in or someone similar hopefully our fortunes will change mate, but it is not something i would put much money on..

8.) 26 Aug 2023 20:09:41
I’d bring back big Dunc and play him up front. Couldn’t do any worse.

9.) 26 Aug 2023 20:20:19
Chin up 025.
I've been ripping the mickey out of the few bloos I know, but it's all good natured stuff. I can see how utterly miserable they are and I know you'll be feeling the same.
Don't let it drag your weekend down mate.

{Ed025's Note - my chin is always up Flash, its only football mate, 22 overpaid prima-donna,s kicking a pigs bladder about for 90 minutes does not make them the be all and end all, and things can turn around very quickly in football, a couple of wins and we could be climbing the table and have our supporters singing that we are " the greatest football team the world has ever seen".. :)

10.) 26 Aug 2023 20:24:10
Poor old Ed, the Everton Tom Cruise.
I won't say it's quite Mission Impossible just yet but your mission Ed, should you choose to accept it, is to enjoy the football season 23/ 24.
This post will self destruct in 30 seconds.

{Ed025's Note - love it Juicer, our players are self destructing at the minute mate, but if you dont have hope what do you have?...probably an Everton scarf.. :)

11.) 26 Aug 2023 20:54:07
Personally, I generally want Everton to stay up but like Leeds they have been badly mismanaged for a long time. I question spending your resources on non first team players - a blind man can see u need a striker as you can't rely on DCL. They should have sold pickford and possibly oanna to raise funds for players to make an immediate impact. they have actually played ok in the 2 home games . and a player who can put the ball in net would have made a difference.

{Ed025's Note - its a tough call if you decide to sell your best players (allegedly) Ben, supporters would not be happy with that i believe mate, we are very short of goals and confidence but i still think we have time to turn things around, with a new CF and the return of McNeil, Harrison and DCL you never know...things might just change ..

12.) 26 Aug 2023 21:36:03
OK ed025 spoken like a true loser! Is this the end for Everton.

{Ed025's Note - only you and your friend Laurel would believe that mate.. :)

13.) 26 Aug 2023 22:28:43
I think if Everton get beaten by Sheffield United next week that's Dyche done as manager of the club. You can't play 4 games, not win any including losing to a Wolves team who are odds on to go down after a disasterous summer, loosing all thier best players, not recruiting any decent replacements and having your manager walking out. Then loose to another team who are odds on to go down. They really need ot dog a result out next week.

{Ed025's Note - quite a few agree with you KK, but they are the ones that married the first girl the kissed mate, those with experience know how hard the Everton job is and i personally hope we give him time..

14.) 27 Aug 2023 01:21:37
I’d say Luton and probably Sheffield United will finish below Everton. What they need is to finish above one more club - which might not be as easy as it sounds - and hope the FA don’t rock up before next May with a points deduction.

Moshiri is killing the club, very slowly.

15.) 26 Aug 2023 23:05:09
Have Everton got the finances to sack Dyche and get someone else in?

{Ed025's Note - i doubt it Flash, but who would take the job anyway mate?, no money to spend, an owner and chairman who have not got a scooby, FFP breach hanging over them, bottom of the league and a toxic atmosphere, its hardly likely to attract anyone decent now is it?..

16.) 27 Aug 2023 04:26:48
Dyche will turn this around and they’ll stay up, I’ve no doubt in my mind.
Both Merseyside teams need a decent centre forward who can score goals.

{Ed025's Note - i dont see a problem with liverpool scoring Ron, you have players all along that front line who will score goals mate, i feel its at the other end of the pitch where your problems lie..

17.) 27 Aug 2023 07:53:30
Ron, Liverpool need a decent CF? Do me a favour.

18.) 27 Aug 2023 09:13:57
Who is our decent CF then?

We have no-one through the middle:

Nunez = Andy Carroll (he can’t score)
Gakpo = winger
Jota = injury has finished him

So who is it?

19.) 27 Aug 2023 09:35:21
Ed25, I thought the Doucoure goal should have stood. IMO, it was way too close to call when I saw it and if it is that close, the VAR should let the ruling on the pitch stand. Just my take.

{Ed025's Note - i think we all know my feelings on VAR Oli, its a joke mate..

20.) 27 Aug 2023 13:00:42
Don’t think Gakpo will play too much on the wing Ron and for the life of me I don’t understand how Jota is finished? 8 goals and 4 assists in his last 11 PL would suggest otherwise ?‍♂️.

21.) 27 Aug 2023 20:59:06
Ron, think you had a mare there. Nunez was great today.

22.) 27 Aug 2023 23:32:40
Dyche mightnt be the problem but he's also not the answer imo

Hey Bean, when do we get to turn on Bradley? Since that's how the best and or most knowledgeable fans treat their players. Big them up when they break through and then hammer them if they have a poor game. I'm dying to take him down a peg, who does he think he is coming into a Premier League team at 20 and looking like he belongs in it?

Trent has played 301 games for Liverpool. He's been actually bad (as opposed to sad, obsessive weirdos employed by Sky Sports overanalysing his defending bad), at most, 20 times. Probably less.

Also we conceded twice *after* he left the pitch yesterday.

I question the seriousness of the £150m offer, Lee. These clubs apparently have de facto limitless funds, but they didn't make an offer until the final few days of the transfer window.

Why didn't they bid three weeks previously? With time to use the money we might have accepted. Seems like a publicity stunt to me.

Either way, I'm happier to retain Salah.

Why sack Seven Hag, Shaps?

Thought all Man U's problems were down to injuries and not baldie in the dugout? I mean, didn't you say a manager is only as good as the players he can select after all?

Unless his name is Mauricio Pochettino (in which case he'll be worse) or Jurgen Klopp (in which case he'll be better) that is. As evidenced yesterday.
