Morning, just thought I’d pass on the info I’ve read.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed Liverpool are looking at midfielders and will sign one if an opportunity on the market is available. He specifically mentioned Matheus Nunes (although Ed002 has previously stated no interest) .

He also stated however that he’s not sure how much LFC would be willing to invest in a new midfielder, so whether we would be willing to part ways with a significant amount for a mid remains to be seen.

Klopp did say we wouldn’t panic in response to the Thiago injury so I would assume any signing would be a long term target (not a stop gap) .

Any info from the Eds?

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - In what respect?}


1.) 08 Aug 2022 11:53:35
Just in respect to whether the situation surrounding signing a midfielder has changed.

Liverpool’s stance was ‘no incomings’ and now, judging from local journalists etc, that may have shifted.

Thiago’s injury is seemingly only a few weeks so it seems bizarre that the stance would change so drastically.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change and Liverpool has plenty of cover.}


2.) 08 Aug 2022 13:02:44
Plenty of cover with more injury prone players.


3.) 08 Aug 2022 14:55:48
Ed0002 you said early on in the window we would look to sign a midfielder obviously things change. Do you think Klopp did not want one without sales or more the owners not wanting to spend anymore more this window.
Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has said he doesn't need one. If there had been a sale that may well have been different.}


4.) 08 Aug 2022 15:37:13
Let's face it no matter how good Thiago is he only lasts for at most 6 games and he picks up an injury. We do not have anyone to cover for his quality. I think it's a massive mistake to wait until next year to improve the midfield oldies.


5.) 08 Aug 2022 15:55:04
So Romano is covering all bases. Great insight there. He has good contacts and maximises their use. He rarely breaks news early or gets scoops. Simply put he is not even a poor man's Ed002. Good on you to help him get more money though.


6.) 08 Aug 2022 16:51:51
Fabrizio the tap in merchant. Typed out a tweet full of words but actually said nothing.


7.) 08 Aug 2022 17:03:09
Cheer up Rambo mate, the sun is shining outside. No need to be bitter about a successful journalist lol (you’re not a bluenose in disguise are you? ) ?.


8.) 08 Aug 2022 17:06:26
I think the required midfield enforcement has been looking us in the face all summer! Frenkie de jong!
Top quality, young and available. Barcelona getting desperate to register new player and the cherry on top is it would destroy Manchester Utd if we picked him up. Get it done Liverpool!


9.) 08 Aug 2022 17:36:33
Gonna need 4/ 5 mids next season Keita ox milly be gone hendo Thiago hitting 32/ 33! Leaves jone carvalho and Elliot.


10.) 08 Aug 2022 18:05:41
Sangare has signed a new contract, so it won't be him, but i am of the belief that with the injury prone, under performing MF's, plus Milner and Ox who are both likely gone next summer, we would be best served bedding in a new face now .

This stat is slightly worrying
[Joel Rabinowitz] "Liverpool have gone 1-0 down in seven of their last nine games in all competitions now (and in each of their last five league games) . On four of those occasions they've conceded the opening goal within the first 15 minutes. Starting slow is becoming a habit that needs breaking. "


11.) 08 Aug 2022 19:52:51
Not bitter at all. Romano merely aggregates news from multiple sources. In this case its nonsense that don't provide any value. Ed002 has told us for ages we have looked at and scouted various CMs last season. Doesn't mean we'll sign 1 this window. let's just say I don't go monkey mad on anything Romano says.


12.) 08 Aug 2022 20:33:36
Oh my God, has anybody told the club that Millie, Ox and Naby’s contracts are up? Has anybody told them that Hendo and Thiago will be 32 and that they are getting way too 9th? I know that the club don’t like planning but surely they realise that they can rely on the expertise of any number of fans only too willing to help, some of whom (just like me) can even count to 32.

Of course one of the benefits we helpers can provide to the club is to repeat 5he same stuff every day just in case the club forgets.


13.) 08 Aug 2022 20:34:12
Jay Dub, this is probably going to make you go apoplectic with rage, but apparently the club are close to renewing Keita’s contract as they think it’s a better (cheaper) option than finding a new midfielder. Personally I think giving him a new contract makes no logic sense as he’s never really performed well consistently and is injury prone, but there you go. Ox won’t be replaced and I don’t think they’ll replace Milner either. Can’t see us stumping up £120m and £350k a week in wages for Bellingham either. So there’s going to be a lot of disappointed folk around here.


14.) 08 Aug 2022 20:59:38
I’ve heard from someone who told me about the Nunez deal and Morton loan before the occurred that it’s unlikely we bring in a midfielder; but, if we were to bring one in, the ones of particular interest are Nunes and Sucic. Take it with a pinch of salt.


15.) 08 Aug 2022 21:04:07
You mean there'll be a lot more disappointed folk on here. It's clear many are already disappointed right now that we've thrown the Premiership away after one game.


16.) 08 Aug 2022 22:16:39
Spaceman stop spreading the negativity buddy. One game and our midfielders are underperforming. Really?

{Ed025's Note - overreaction much Gandalf mate..


17.) 09 Aug 2022 01:13:18
Drawing against Fulham wasn’t a great start though was it Flash? City would have pumped them for four or five. We somehow contrived to make the Fulham midfield look world class and if City get out the blocks quickly, we’re not catching them if we have a few more performances like that, which is not entirely out of the question when you look at last season. You simply can’t afford to make mistakes when you’re up against a team with infinite resources. The way City easily and fault casually dispatched a decent West Ham side was not a good sign for the rest. I think we’re already playing for second place and it’s only one game in.


18.) 09 Aug 2022 07:42:45
Playing for 2nd place with 37 games to go?
When you say we can't afford to make mistakes, does that mean win every single game? And if we don't, then go foaming at the mouth?
The unwarranted hysteria is comical.


19.) 09 Aug 2022 07:49:16
6 times I can’t imagine us splashing on Jude either especially when we are going to need 4/ 5 mids.


20.) 09 Aug 2022 09:58:31
Posters who say that the Fulham game doesn't matter are the same ones that probably think last seasons draws and defeats didn't result in us coming 2nd and that it doesn't matter that we lost the CL final because we were the better team.


 

 

26 Jun 2022 18:48:57
After reading Ed002’s input about Otavio I decided to have a look and see if it was being reported anywhere.

Funnily enough after the post a very reliable Portuguese newspaper has said that Liverpool and Porto are currently in talks over the transfer and that his agent was in England over the past week speaking to a few clubs.

I know ed002 you said that Liverpool had ‘additional interest’ but are you aware whether Liverpool and Porto are currently in discussions regarding a transfer or if there’s only been contact with the agent thus far?

Thanks for your fantastic input as always!

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - I don't know the situation right now, but Liverpool certainly have the opportunity to do something.}


1.) 26 Jun 2022 19:29:30
That’s always a positive sign.

Do you know what sort of fee he’d command? Leeds had a bid of around £25mil rejected so I’d assume around the £30mil ballpark.

Also sorry to ask but do you know how well thought of he is as a player? The interest only seems to be primarily from Leeds and Liverpool.

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - The fee is of no relevance. He is well thought of.}


2.) 26 Jun 2022 20:02:52
Surly if we buy Octavio, ox would be moving on. If I'm thinking of the right player, octavio v similar player to bernado Silva, v good technically in possession and v wicked and aggressive out of possession.


3.) 26 Jun 2022 20:00:43
Many thanks for the info. Have a good day.


4.) 26 Jun 2022 20:24:28
Sounds like you have the right player Digger. Very similar to Bernardo, but right footed and a slightly more powerful runner with that ball who can also hit it from range. Aggressive and creative. A very good combination in a player!


5.) 26 Jun 2022 20:28:54
Looks like it's on from all the info coming out of Portugal. Same paper that broke the nunez story saying we are in talks. Never seen him play but supposed to be mustard.


6.) 26 Jun 2022 21:08:22
He looks like a Klopp type squad player who would not be on silly wages, and could cover a few positions. Looks very hard working .
This makes sense as a no frills quality squad upgrade.


7.) 26 Jun 2022 19:38:49
Ed2 saying "Liverpool certainly have the opportunity to do something" is Enough to make anyone's weekend whole.
Thank you for who you are and all that you do!


8.) 26 Jun 2022 19:40:11
Great news, from what I’ve read he looks a very good player. Fingers crossed we get this one sorted.


9.) 26 Jun 2022 22:58:29
this page must have matured. either that or Otavia is the real deal lol
not seeing the usual doubtful posts and comments like "FSG don't buy old" etc etc
:D.


10.) 26 Jun 2022 23:13:45
Faith. I’m doubtful mate ? floptavio god damn Leeds target. Shocking.


11.) 26 Jun 2022 23:58:32
What’s even more peculiar is, everybody knew all about Diaz and Nunez as they had all watched the Portuguese League for years but had obviously been watching all the matches on the weekends Otavio goes shopping.


12.) 27 Jun 2022 04:08:51
Isn't everyone after Leeds players like Philips, Raphinho.


13.) 27 Jun 2022 07:17:50
Ha ha WDW. that made me laugh! So true.


14.) 27 Jun 2022 10:33:05
[Neil Jones] Told there's no truth in reports linking Liverpool with a move for Porto's Otavio this summer. Not a target and never has been.


15.) 27 Jun 2022 11:31:49
Well if what you lot have mentioned about him is true. he certainly sounds like Someone we need. Runs with ball and likes a long range shot. With minamino going and hopefully clearing out the ox, could be a shrewd buy to cover multiple positions.
Fingers crossed on this.


16.) 27 Jun 2022 12:15:07
We won’t be buying a 27 year old to play in Elliot’s position. No chance. Otavio’s shooting is poor at best he can’t score goals in Portugal so I doubt he can in the PL.


17.) 27 Jun 2022 22:26:48
Since when is the fee of no relevance!


18.) 27 Jun 2022 22:28:52
Since when is the fee of no relevance?

{Ed002's Note - Always as the supporters like you don’t understand the finances at all.}


19.) 28 Jun 2022 00:48:16
I think it is fair to say finances are of considerable relevance to the club. They are meaningless, and therefore irrelevant, to fans and users of fans forums as we don’t understand the overall costs of buying a particular player or the overall impact the cost will have in the overall financial operations of the club.

Of course there are some people who think that if City pay 50m for a player we should buy one for 60m because that would mean we are better than City. and, of course, if we only pay 10m then we will never win anything and the board should just sell the club.

As an aside nice to see the first negative critique of Otavio, I wonder if it comes from watching the player live on a regular basis?


20.) 28 Jun 2022 01:58:51
Hi eds 002, just a comment regarding matt 123, why do fans need to understand finances? Do you need to understand truly how air condition work to enjoy it? No offense, just a philosophical discussion.

{Ed002's Note - We don't discuss finances because fans don't understand and spout nonsense. It is better to avoid such discussions to avoid fans embarrassing themselves and looking stupid.}


 

 

24 May 2022 12:56:23
Lots of reports coming out with regards to Tchouameni at the moment.

English media: LivEcho (fairly unreliable) and Maddock (also unreliable) from the Mirror have said he's destined to join Madrid.

French Media: RMC (reliable) have stated he's agreed terms with both RM and LFC with a decision over his future sometime this week. Lequipe (semi reliable) have stated that the midfielder wants to join Liverpool.

MonkeyMad

1.) 24 May 2022 13:37:14
Just to add onto this (pressed send accidentally)

Spanish media are reporting that they see the player joining Liverpool.

Any updates from the Eds? It seems that Liverpool might have agreed personal terms and are now speaking with Monaco over a fee? Could be incorrect and should we hold our breath over it?!

{Ed002's Note - Forget the personal terms - nobody has an agreement with Monaco.}


2.) 24 May 2022 13:55:31
I saw Paul Mitchell claim that they would have to be 'aggressive offers' - you've previously mentioned that Monaco were looking to around €100mil, I would assume the final figure would be much lower than this?

Just wondering overall as it seems it could be a hugely expensive transfer.

Thanks as always! Also haven't seen much of WonderDogSparky as of late;)

{Ed002's Note - It would have to be lower. Monaco quoted that originally to Chelsea and Real Madrid.}


3.) 24 May 2022 14:02:16
So are we taking from that Ed002 that personal terms cannot be agreed with a player until the parent club have agreed to allowing the interested parties to talk to the player? If this IS the case, do you ever think personal terms are agreed in “principle” behind closed doors based on the potential that said parent club May sanction the transfer?

{Ed002's Note - No, you misunderstand. This is why I said ignore it.}


4.) 24 May 2022 15:51:34
Ed002 I'm aware the current situation at Chelsea means that they certainly are in no place to speak to Monaco surrounding a transfer, should this be resolved shortly could you see them also coming into the picture?

I'd assume that both Madrid and Liverpool will be aware of this and would look to seal a deal before Chelsea have an option to "swoop" in and attempt to sign the player.

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that. Liverpool have had every opportunity to negotiate a deal with Monaco and the player - they have finally approached Monaco. Real Madrid and Chelsea have spoken to Monaco on several occasopns but, as you say, Chelsea cannot agree any transfer until the sanctions are removed with confirmation of a new owner. All three clubs have other players in a similar position that they are considering.}


5.) 24 May 2022 16:22:47
News breaking that he's moving to Madrid for around £70m - guess that's over then. I wonder who else is on the midfield list.


6.) 24 May 2022 17:18:13
Ed002, is one of those other players Kone from Borussia Monchengladbach?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


7.) 24 May 2022 20:26:44
Is it news breaking on the Madrid site or just more clickbait?
People who buy into what they read with clickbait usually end up with egg on their faces.


8.) 24 May 2022 23:30:27
Hi Flash it was news from RMC (very reliable) and Fabrizio Romano (and other French journalists) claiming that Madrid were in talks with Monaco for a fee around €80mil+ and the player has his heart set on joining.

Since this has been revealed however bizarrely Spanish media have started stating that Madrid have absolutely no intention to pay that sort of money and that the player prefers a move to the Premier League. Very bizarre stuff - best to ignore for now as it's all up in the air.


9.) 24 May 2022 20:59:55
It’s pretty much a given, it’s been pretty much Madrid’s deal since Mbappe played them. We’ve acted too slowly and paid the price.


10.) 25 May 2022 07:59:24
Madrid needs a distraction after loosing out on Mbappe and will happily overpay to change the narrative.


11.) 25 May 2022 19:18:41
That's what I was hinting at Monkey. So called "reliable sources" still do their fair share of guessing or just making stuff up to keep the clicks coming.
And as for acting too slowly and paying the price V4, what price have we paid? Were we even in for the player?
And if he isn't signing for Madrid, who's to say he won't be signing for us?
Nobody knows except the clubs involved, the player and the agent. If he signs for us, all well and good. If he doesn't then we aren't going to collapse, we'll find a viable alternative.
Klopp and co know what they're doing.


 

 

04 Mar 2022 18:27:00
Evening, anything on Antony from Ajax for summer Ed002?

Few Liverpool sources said the club were tight lipped about him, looks a good player but would be very expensive and typically plays in Salah's position.

If not him then are Liverpool looking to any forwards for summer? It's well documented that a midfielder would he top of the list.

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - Antony (RW/LW) Bayern Munich have declared an interest in giving Ajax a profit on the player but Ajax are not looking to sell and there is a dependency on a Bayern Munich player leaving. They may start to push. Real Madrid see him as an option but not top of their list and interest will wane. Chelsea see him as as an option as they look to resolve issues with their wide players. Manchester City see him as a possible Mahrez replacement and Manchester United as a Mason Greenwood replacement. Barcelona would take him or another player they have an eye on as a Dembele replacement, but will need to find a home for Dembele first. Ajax will look to extend his contract. Liverpool have no declared interest and he would be a Salah replacement.

Liverpool have looked at forwards as I have explained - but it would need to be driven by departures.}


1.) 06 Mar 2022 11:26:04
Cheers!


 

 

20 Jan 2022 09:33:06
Barca director, Alemany, just announced that Dembele will be leaving the club before Jan 31st as it's been made clear he will not be staying.

Ed002, I know you've previously stated that Klopp has the klipperties for the player but with him now becoming available in the market (although I really hope not) could you see Liverpool potentially trying to get a deal completed before the window ends?

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - Ousmane Dembele (RW/LW/F) Klopp's interest does not seem to go away but the attraction will be that he is a Free Agent in the summer although his preference is likely to be elsewhere unless Salah or Mane were to leave. Barcelona have tried again with a new contract with no luck and a January sale could be difficult but his agent is offering him around - but looking for a very large signing on package. Barcelona may spring a surprise in January and look to see if something could be done with potential targets at Juventus or Milan to reduce the price although Juve may look to an agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer. Financially, it is in the best interests of the player to stay until the summer. They may also look to an exchange with Chelsea for Rudiger but the Chelsea interest is elsewhere rather than Dembele and can probably be discounted. With Sancho having arrived it is hard to see interest from Manchester United although they have been approached and they will need a Martial replacement at some point. Arsenal would need to offload Pepe to make space and remain an unattractive option - it would be madness to consider adding Dembele. PSG are seeking a French player still but have a preferred option as a Mbappe replacement. Injury concerns, inconsistent form and high wages must be considered by any potential buyers.


1.) 20 Jan 2022 11:50:00
Non exhaustive list of better value for money players than Ousmane Dembele:

Bozo Texino
Snoogy Doogie
Ken Aguero
Navy Keith
Former Leeds United and Scotland frontman Arthur Graham
Even Adama Traore

Dembele has AVOID AT ALL COSTS written all over him in big neon letters, there’s definitely no bargain to be had as he’s in such poor physical condition and he never will be, he’s as congenitally broken as a Lancia Beta. And a complete retromingent gilfnard of epic proportions.

His career will fizzle out in the next two/ three years and he’ll be struggling to get games at a mid table Turkish club. Odds on. Hard pass.


2.) 20 Jan 2022 12:41:17
You seem to be on the fence about Dembele, VVVV. Tell us how you really feel.

Jokes aside, you're right. Idk why we still seem to be interested, but everything about this bloke screams Balotelli all over again. Except probably more costly given his likely wage demands.


3.) 20 Jan 2022 12:54:12
Wondered how long it would be before VVVV commented how much he dislikes Ousmane. ;)


4.) 20 Jan 2022 12:36:51
So you're not a fan VVV? 😅.


5.) 20 Jan 2022 13:34:57
Someone better tell the big German lad.


6.) 20 Jan 2022 14:06:10
Scary how good he was coming from France to Dortmund. He was Mbappe level of potential but then injuries got the better of him. Nobody knew what footed he was as a youngster.


7.) 20 Jan 2022 13:17:38
Thing is, we don’t have a lot of money and we can’t make mistakes in the transfer market. Sign him on a long term deal on huge wages and we’re lumbered with him if and when it inevitably goes wrong as no one in their right mind would take him off our hands on the salary he’d be on. Besides which, it’s well documented by some very reliable sources that he’s for far more than what Salah is alleged to have asked us for, how happy do you think Salah would be if Dembele walked in (well hobbled, on crutches), on a salary of over £500’000 a week when the club had tyre kicked around his negotiations? Let him be someone else’s mistake.


8.) 20 Jan 2022 15:01:42
I don’t always agree with VVVV but he’s got this one spot on I reckon.


9.) 20 Jan 2022 15:13:29
On paper, he's said to be among the elite footballers of the world but in reality he's just a nightmare. Clearly the boy has talent but looking at how he disrespected Dortmund to force his way to Barca, and now he's trying to milk Barcelona after being injured so frequently, I just don't see why clubs even bother anymore. His attitude is poor and his wage demands are high plus his injury records are horrendous. That's a recipe for disaster, so it is a clear NO if you ask me.


10.) 20 Jan 2022 15:40:22
Just can't see the club taking such risks considering the way they operate and that its the last 2.5 years of JK, and if there is any chance of him coming back after a year off, the team needs to be rocking its 2.0 version.
Smoke and mirrors IMO.
Diaz is another matter. Can see this one coming straight out the bag and catching everyone out.


11.) 20 Jan 2022 18:36:05
If the money is right I can see both signing. I know he’s not what everyone wants but I think Klopp will push for him given he is free. Diaz I think will arrive in the summer.


12.) 21 Jan 2022 09:34:01
Made me laugh when I read Newcastle was considering Super Mario.


13.) 21 Jan 2022 10:56:12
Dembele has clearly got talent and it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that he establishes himself as one of the best players around. That said his injury record and seeming bad attitude would put me off plus he seems to want (and probably will get being a free transfer/ contract running down) massive money so it would seem one to swerve.


14.) 21 Jan 2022 22:29:41
Worth a year contract to say thanks for missing the sitter at the end of the 1st Leg CL semi in 18/ 19. Thanks lad.

Was at the Community Shield yday, thought Liverpool played really well. Anyone who doubts Thiago is absolutely crazy, he was absolutely unbelievable.

Think Nunez will also do really well, he came off the bench and instantly provided so many problems. Won a penalty and scored a goal also. His name was ringing around the Liverpool end extensively, got the feeling he’s going to be quite the hit.

Just like to also give a big mention to the fellow reds, train strikes, numerous crashes on the M6 and yet a full allocation. Fans were excellent as usual. Shame some of the City fans resorted to the traditional ‘Murderer’ and ‘Victim’ chants, sadly some things never change.

Looking forward to the new season! I know it’s only the community shield but hopefully one of many ‘trophies’ to come this season ?.

Every club has idiots including our own. City fans in general are pretty decent from my own experience.


5.) 31 Jul 2022 11:34:25
Agreed JK but always annoys me when fans start singing that rubbish. Dense.


6.) 31 Jul 2022 12:02:06
Think you can safely say Nunez similar to Rush i. e. goal sniffer/ hanger, had three good chances one was the goal obviously, one on one hit the keeper and a glancing header of a cross, taking one out of three good chances has to be improved on to two out of three in really big games to come if determines what you win in the end, good start though will have to be more clinical to be compared with Rush (who was better than Fowler and Owen put together, just look at his record 346 goals in 660 appearances) .

More concerning was Hendersons Radar which was well off and his covering and protection of TAA (he can obviously do the talk, but can he now walk the walk?, only time will tell), like the majority of posters wanted a top, top class midfielder, i believe we have that calibre of player there now in TAA, feel the time is now right to push him forward especially if the new right back Ramsay and Mabaya or even Joe Gomez can settle into the right back position, the time is right now to unleash him into midfield, and who knows we may well have a goal scoring midfielder, although Jurgen always prefers "water carriers" in his teams.

All in all a very promising start, which hopefully will only get better, the strength of teams benches will prove to be the outcome of so many trophies with the new rule changes, as the amount of games is colossal, just hope our midfield strength doesn't turn out to be what we win and don't win this season.

Hello West Derby Wanderer, "Did i see Rush live" being aged 67 now, and having a season ticket in the old main stand Row 23 Seat Number 209, started off standing on a stool aged 10 in the corner of the Anfield Road, then onto the boys pen and Kop as i went older, weekly seen all the great teams since the mid 60s, went to all the away games on the "ordinary" as it was then called (the "John Wayne" for supporters who don't know, what the "ordinary" was) .

Best team, the team that won the FA Cup for the first time in 1965, Second Best team the First Red European Cup Winners in 1977, which i went to by the infamous train that took three days to get there, and missed the homecoming.

Can safely say i have seen many LFC players and happy times and so many, many trophies, wouldn't change it for anything. Hope all future LFC Fans have similar "happy times".

YNWA.

Hello Digger10, That's a corker of a question?, i have gone by Sentiment regards best teams Shankly is my favourite manager of all time, Sir Bob the Best LFC Manager ever, will change that to Sir Jurgen if he equals Sir Bobs record of Three European Cups.

The newer LFC fan was amazed with Sir Jurgens "pressing game", this was how Sir Bob played in the 80s, Hansen and Lawrenson used to press and squeeze the opposition into their own half then, would not allow them into our half.

England ladies have just scored with a "DINK" over the keeper, should Nunez have done that yesterday with his "one on one"?


15.) 01 Aug 2022 00:02:58
Nice one 007, I’m of a similar ilk, first game was 1960/ 61 on my dads shoulders, although I was 3 so don’t remember it.

I asked the question because Rushie was a brilliant goal scorer / hanger but he was also a brilliant first line of defence chasing down defenders, putting pressure on them and chasing back. Elements of last season’s front 3.

Like your choices of managers by the way. Question for you, in your time watching who were the most notable opposition managers - favourite, best and most annoying, as categories perhaps ….

Afternoon lads, on the "discussion posts" tab I've posted a breakdown of Liverpool's financial performance for FY21.

If you care take a look - it's positive news!

MonkeyMad

1.) 07 Mar 2022 12:53:28
Good summary. excluding the debt part which has considerably increased. Nevertheless, we are still a sell-to-buy. aren't we?


2.) 07 Mar 2022 13:15:47
I read an article yesterday that said we have also reduced our wage bill significantly which is now 314 mill a year and is the fourth highest of the big 6.


3.) 07 Mar 2022 13:39:08
Hi Transition_Time, the accounts show an overall improvement when it comes to debt. Financial debt as reported has gotten lower since FY20, transfer debt has increased. The net outcome however has seen a decrease in long term liabilities (in the accounts listed as creditors) and short term.

Further detailed are bank loans which have reduced - you would assume due to Liverpool paying these back. Amounts owing to Fenway has remained the same.

Looks like Aakira might have been spot on with that £38mil and then some moving in LFC's accounts. Paul Joyce reporting £37.5mil upfront with bonuses after.

Could be a coincidence but otherwise, great rumour and a great outcome. What the site is all about 👍.

If it does happen fair play. might be a coincidence but if not thank you for sharing the information Aakira.


3.) 28 Jan 2022 09:52:59
One of the best rumours on the site of all time.

{Ed0666's Note - yes fair play. Let’s give credit where it’s due. Akira called it.


4.) 28 Jan 2022 10:25:07
What did Akira say? Have searched but can’t find his post.

{Ed0666's Note - he loosely said that Liverpool had put aside funds for a player and this could be for an imminent transfer. Again that’s a super loose translation if anyone wants to finesse it please be my guest


5.) 28 Jan 2022 10:30:48
Thanks Ed0666, fingers crossed he signs!

{Ed0666's Note - knowing our luck he snaps his ACL at the weekend!


6.) 28 Jan 2022 10:40:52
I guess this is what was you guys are looking for, as said by Akira1892:


"A huge amount has been sanctioned on LFC corporate accounts. This is usually seen during signings negoatiations. Incoming imminent? "

"Money has been moved. Its not balancing the books as its not between accounts. This type of movement happens during transfers. Its a bank guarantee credit note. These are issued as a guarantee to the third party that said capital exists.
I am not aware of any money to be paid to the city of liverpool for any infrastructure related investments hence my guess is that a transfer is imminent.
Am sorry i can't say how i know"

"38 and some millions. Its huge as no transfer is upfront with 100 percent money on day1. As this is a guarantee my guess is the player is ought to be at-least 38 millions.
Also lads this could be for past payments but we donot owe that kind of money to anyone. And also debt payments are not paid in bank guarantee.
I am chuckling but really have no idea what this money is for, my guess is that a transfer should be happening. "

{Ed0666's Note - good man Deeps


7.) 28 Jan 2022 10:12:01
Ornstein has given this one the thumbs up too, and he’s normally spot on. Credit to Akira!


8.) 28 Jan 2022 09:32:23
If we manage to get this one over the line I think this will be the most excited I have been about a Liverpool signing since Torres. He looks to be a special talent. Ed’s- do we think this one gets done now?

{Ed002's Note - There has to be a good chance.}


9.) 28 Jan 2022 10:51:58
Oh god hopefully not Ed0666, I’ll be keeping a close eye on the game now! Thanks Ed077. Fair play to Akira for the info. More of that during the summer would be very welcome.


10.) 28 Jan 2022 11:31:21
Spotters badge to Akira (in the words of Big Ron) and excellent detective work by Ed077! Akira should be carried on the shoulders of townsfolk wherever he goes because of that!

{Ed0666's Note - yes great piece of insider info from Akira. Well done mate.

Horrendous 'reffing' performance aside, Konate looks some player. I think when VVD is back we could start seeing a back two of Ibou and Virg.

Can we have a chat at how abysmal officiating is in the premier league.

The City penalty decision is genuinely baffling, it's alright to make the initial mistake but VAR surely has to sort that out?

Also the second Chelsea penalty is absolutely ridiculous. 6'4 bloke falling down like a sack of spuds after some minimal contact in the box, have a day off.

Stuart Attwell also needs an award for probably having one of the worst officiating performances I've seen since David Coote last season at Goodison. At least the Salah penalty decision was spot on. That being said should Alisson have been penalised for bringing down Ings? (Not for me btw, minimal contact and the reason it even gets to that point is due to the clear foul by Ings who pushes Matip straight into Ali) .

It's insane how the richest and most watched league in the world has such incompetent officiating. There's been so many dubious decisions already this season but Saturday's were just horrendous. Hoping it improves because it ruins the results.

MonkeyMad

May I suggest without the refs we wouldn't have a game of football to watch, so I am not saying they are perfect but they make mistakes and let's face it the players don't help them.


2.) 12 Dec 2021 13:04:38
I agree mighty, being a ref is a thankless task. We got away with one yesterday, Allison had a bit of a shocker.


3.) 12 Dec 2021 13:36:38
Horrible day for Alisson though, pouring down, cold, he must have been half frozen as there wasn’t an awful lot for him to do.
Not exactly Copacabana weather.


4.) 12 Dec 2021 13:44:17
Mighty Red, Markp08 - No, being a referee is not a thankless task, especially at Premier League level where they are paid six figures each season and interact with some of the most famous and admired people on earth on a weekly basis. Further, while referees are not typically held in the seem esteem as star players, excellent referees are long remembered with affection for their service to the game. Collina, for instance, is respected as much as any former player.
The standard of refereeing in the PL is disgraceful, it really is. Attwell was succeeding in refereeing the game away from Liverpool (awarding all marginal calls to Villa, allowing Villa to waste ample time without warning - both of which are key in not letting Liverpool sustain pressure), until he simply had to award what was a stonewall penalty. It was a shocking performance.


5.) 12 Dec 2021 14:08:56
It was the same weather for Martinez he seemed to handle it fine.


6.) 12 Dec 2021 14:10:50
Inconsistencies are terrible. The refs had behind VAR. When u see Chris Kavanagh going to the monitor u know he's siding with VAR and what's the point of linesmen/ women anymore?


7.) 12 Dec 2021 14:21:06
The ref had a better game than Allison.


8.) 12 Dec 2021 14:58:27
Martinez was kept very busy though OMM.
Alisson had next to nothing to do for long periods.


9.) 12 Dec 2021 15:09:49
I do agree Roro the refs and linemen hide behind VAR. Someone’s going to get injured constantly having to chase the offside player.


10.) 12 Dec 2021 15:52:31
Struggled badly with his concentration yesterday. Very like the West Ham game but thankfully we got away with it. In fairness to the man he's bailed us out enough times so it's hard to be overly critical.


11.) 12 Dec 2021 17:09:11
Alisson had a nightmare, but his challenge wasn't a penalty. They cleared that up on MOTD.


12.) 12 Dec 2021 18:01:03
I never said it was. Would have been harsh had it been given.


13.) 12 Dec 2021 20:34:44
@Rome1977 - Alison had a nightmare? I’ve told you a million times not to exaggerate!


14.) 13 Dec 2021 10:07:40
To those overreacting over Ali's perf., slow down with the OTT rhetoric cos it nowhere near such comments, IMO. OP, Ali was not at his best cos it seems he was so cold cos he had literally nothing to do. I do agree that he mistimed the bounce of the ball and then panicked and then, slipped and caused panic. On the Ings one, he played it well BUT Ings shoved Matip in the was of his clearance and the mayhem begins and brilliantly saves the situation.

As for your point on the Ings incident, it should be a non story cos Ings fouled Matip so the play should be blown dead for a foul on Matip from jump. That said and with the way Atwell's incompetence was growing to the point of the utter ridiculous at that pint, if he gave the pen., VAR would NOT have overturned it even tho there was a blatant foul on Matip that caused the incident. In this context, we got away with one there.

Just in respect to whether the situation surrounding signing a midfielder has changed.

Liverpool’s stance was ‘no incomings’ and now, judging from local journalists etc, that may have shifted.

Thiago’s injury is seemingly only a few weeks so it seems bizarre that the stance would change so drastically.

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change and Liverpool has plenty of cover.}

That’s always a positive sign.

Do you know what sort of fee he’d command? Leeds had a bid of around £25mil rejected so I’d assume around the £30mil ballpark.

Also sorry to ask but do you know how well thought of he is as a player? The interest only seems to be primarily from Leeds and Liverpool.

Thanks!

MonkeyMad

{Ed002's Note - The fee is of no relevance. He is well thought of.}

I believe it’s because the ball actually went through Nunez’ legs, hit the Fulham players foot and then rebounded back onto Nunez’ foot which is why it ends up going top corner.

So it was actually a rather lucky finish, although really good movement.

It's been widely reported that Liverpool are looking at midfielders. It's certainly the part of the squad that needs Investment.

Tchouameni was obviously the number one target but there will be plenty of other players Liverpool will be looking at. Have faith in the scouts and transfer gurus!
