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?


1.) 18 Sep 2020 23:11:22
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.


2.) 18 Sep 2020 23:11:24
Trust Edwards and fsg. They know what they’re doing.


3.) 19 Sep 2020 01:24:32
It is called Creative Accountancy from Fenway.


4.) 19 Sep 2020 01:24:49
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.

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.


7.) 19 Sep 2020 05:57:40
OmG har has used paragraphs, well done sir 😄.


8.) 19 Sep 2020 07:53:57
That grammarly software is good, isn't it? 😂.


9.) 19 Sep 2020 07:54:47
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.

It gets better: Milner signs a new deal.


1.) 13 Dec 2019 18:32:25
That's more good news.


2.) 13 Dec 2019 18:54:40
Perfect. Milner more than deserves it.


3.) 13 Dec 2019 19:00:31
What next today eh, even more good news coming out of the club!


4.) 13 Dec 2019 19:45:28
Kylian Mbappé to sign in January!


5.) 13 Dec 2019 19:52:42
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.

Michael Edwards' departure at the end of the season confirmed. Best of luck to him and here's hoping Julian Ward gets on well as his replacement.


1.) 10 Nov 2021 17:36:38
Might pull a big one out the bag before he goes lol.


2.) 10 Nov 2021 18:09:33
Michael Edwards did a more than awesome job for this club and great credit goes to Klopp for allowing him to do his job and letting him have a say in who we sign. They seem to have been quite a great team along with the other members of the scouting team. All the best to him in his future engagements.


3.) 10 Nov 2021 19:42:31
Heard it here months ago. love this site.


4.) 10 Nov 2021 19:47:29
Absolutely lad's he did a fantastic job for us and if by chance he happens to end up at another football team I'll bear no grunge to the man YNWA.


5.) 10 Nov 2021 20:03:02
They were reporting it everywhere months ago RedScarface.


6.) 10 Nov 2021 20:10:26
In fairness he’s probably been on gardening leave the last 6 transfer windows. All the best to him though. Rumour mill is he could be heading Newcastle.


7.) 10 Nov 2021 23:43:56
A lot of talk of Edwards buying but his selling was his ultimate skill, 19m for Solanke.


8.) 11 Nov 2021 07:52:02
13 goals in 17 games and sitting top of the Chamionship at 24 years old with his best days to come.


9.) 11 Nov 2021 08:43:40
I think Edwards next job will be a lot bigger than Newcastle…I think he’s set his sights abroad.


10.) 11 Nov 2021 16:20:45
I also don’t think there’ll be any final rabbits out the hat. Firstly, he’ll be on some form of gardening leave towards the end of his contract as the club won’t want him knowing their plans going forward, secondly, and notwithstanding the first pound, there’s no money.

Ole gunnar solskjaer meets with Klopp. He asks him, "Your team wiped the floor with us 5 - 0 I can't get over it, how do you run such an efficient team? Are there any tips you can give to me? "

"Well, " says Klopp, "the most important thing is to sign intelligent players. "

Solskjaer frowns. "But how do I know the players in my team are really intelligent? "

Klopp says. "Oh, that's easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle. "

Then Klopp phones Mo Salah. "Please Join me and Solskjaer in here, would you? "

Salah walks into the room. "Yes, boss? "

Klopp smiles. "Answer me this, please, Mo. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it? "

Without pausing for a moment, Mo answers, "That would be me. "

"Yes! Very good, " says Klopp.

Back at Old Trafford, Ole gunnar Solskjaer asks to see Harry Maguire.

"Harry, answer this for me. Your mother and father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it? "

"I'm not sure, " says Harry. "Let me get back to you on that one. "

Harry goes to to the whole Man Utd squad and asks every one he can find, but none can give him an answer. Finally, on the way out he bumps into Paul Pogba

Harry says, "Paul! Can you answer this for me? Your mother and your father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?

Paul Pogba says, "That's easy. It's me! "

Harry says. "Thanks! " and goes back to the Managers Office to speak with Ole gunnar Solskjaer.

Harry Says, "I did some research I asked the whole team and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Paul Pogba. "

Ole gunnar Solskjaer, stomps over to Harry Maguire, and angrily yells into his face, "No, you idiot! It's Mo Salah! "

Keita's injury is just bruising according to Ljinders. Fabs could be back at the weekend. Thiago close to making the weekend, but probably not. Next week hopefully.

Less good news is Milner is set to be out for a few games. Expected to be out until after the next international break.

Kelleher not expected to be fit for Preston after being ill.


1.) 26 Oct 2021 17:53:52
Exactly what I just read SR, plus Sepp van den Berg cleared to play for Preston. 👍.


2.) 27 Oct 2021 08:40:12
Thanks, OP. I guess we will have to go with Adrian in goal v Preston, I guess.


3.) 27 Oct 2021 14:25:09
Considering he had a week off after the Atletico game, shouldn't Alisson start?

{Ed0666's Note - err no hes played a lot of football recently done a lot of travel and I can’t believe you just asked that question


4.) 28 Oct 2021 06:25:09
Come on Ed0666, come on! That was not a question at all.

{Ed001's Note - you put a question mark on the end of it, so it was a question.}

Kelleher starts for Ireland tonight lads. Should help with a bit of match sharpness for Watford on Saturday.


1.) 12 Oct 2021 19:37:08
Watched kelleher at Norwich very composed and saved a penalty so no problem for me.


2.) 12 Oct 2021 20:41:25
Kekke het was brilliant vs Wolves last season where we comfortably pummelled them 3-0 and was just as stellar vs Ajax in the CL where his point blank save vs Huntelaar secured the points. He was promoted to Ali’s deputy for a reason.


3.) 12 Oct 2021 20:41:49
Kelleher I meant to say. Darn autocorrect.


4.) 12 Oct 2021 21:33:55
Oli the could be his new nickname Kekke Kelleher.


5.) 13 Oct 2021 10:20:06
Like the sound of that actually, Barry. Good shout, that one. I may just keep it.


6.) 13 Oct 2021 14:25:54
Your welcome OR.

I think Thiago played very well last third of last season, once he'd settled into the team and wasn't having to play the no. 6 role cos Fabinho was at center back.

Pity for prospective suitors that Rice declared for England, he'd be worth at least £30m less if he was playing for Ireland.

I can easily believe Bellingham would want the move, but that doesn't mean we've decided he's worth a hefty transfer fee, and can afford that outlay on one player.

I'm not going to lie, it is easy to look at Keita and Ox, who have had issues with both fitness and consistency, (although Keita had actually only missed 2 games due to injury this season, and I think Ox has been every squad so far) and wonder why we didn't sell them and buy one better midfielder. Either in terms of quality or fitness. Or both.

But maybe no one was interested at a price that allowed us to buy a midfielder we actually wanted. We'd have needed £20m each for them to even look at Bissouma, which let's face it, we were never going to get. Sure, we could've gone out and bought, as a random example, Jason Knight for £10m or something, but does a player of that level have a long term role at Liverpool beyond simply providing a fitter body than Keita or Ox for a season or two? Don't think so.

With the market being how it is, and the risk presented by Ox and Keita's injury records, you'd probably struggle to drum up interest in anything than a loan to buy, or a really cheap deal for them.

And at the end of the day, we've gone into the season with 6 senior midfielders, plus Jones and Elliot. Even accounting for one being 35, and three having less than stellar injury records, it really should be enough cover. It's not like CB last season where we only had 3 plus the then unproven Phillips.

Where's the minimum £30m price difference between Ox and Bissouma going to come from?

The problem with hammering Rafa for picking Iwobi (£34m, lol) and Rondon all the time is who else does he pick?

Tosun? Rubbish player.
Delph? Also bad.
Kean? Not at the club cos he's comically unsuited to the Premier League.
Gomes? Can play a bit tbf, but constantly injured.
And let's not mention the other guy. You know the one.

After that, he has the kid that came on last night and Simms. Maybe I forgot someone. To me it looks like Rafa realised the only way of making anything of the season was to play to strengths of Calvert-Lewin, which meant buying two wingers and another big striker to act as backup to Calvert-Lewin so you wouldn't have to change the system. On a shoestring. Looks like he's done ok with Gray and Townsend. Rondon's pretty bad so far, but who else could he have got for nothing? Andy Carroll, maybe?

On the Arsenal goal, I'm fine with it standing. Yeah, Fred's stood on de Gea which I'm sure was painful, but it didn't actually injure him. I've been hit in the face and gentlemen's area whilst playing in goal and just had to get up and only got a breather when the ball went dead. He thought an Arsenal player had done it and he'd get a free by rolling around on the ground.

{Ed025's Note - the thing is SR is that hes playing rondon and iwobi week in week out and they are a tragedy, we dont have many options as you say but to pick the same team and expect a different result is insanity, give one of the kids a go you never know a bit of enthusiasm might just work?, rafa is not blameless in all this mate..
