ed002 do we hold any intrest in Patson Daka I see he as some clause in his contract if its a termination clause would be a right steal and with are money issues would be a very smart bit of business. Selling Origi or Shaq would nearly cover transfer fee and am sure we would be better off wages wise if it was shaq not sure what Origi on.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Patson Daka (S) the player signed a new contract at RBS last season when he was assured of the chance to replace Haaland - a chance he has taken very well under Jesse Marsch. RBL could be interested in taking him in the future but the timing is not right now as RBS have no intention of selling unless a very significant offer were made. He is a player who would depart for AFCON which puts many clubs off. His agent and his assistant (Freddie Kanoute) have offered him around without the permission of RBS - this will be driven by the far higher wages offered elsewhere and certainly London-based clubs have been approached including Crystal Palace who have previously made an offer for him and Spurs. I suspect West Ham and Arsenal will also have been approached. It is pretty clear there will be interest in him in the summer from a number of sides, perhaps including Manchester United and Liverpool. Jesse MarMarsch moving to RBL may give a hint to his immediate future.}


1.) 01 May 2021 15:27:57
He looks an exceptional player but being Zambian means AFCON, got to look elsewhere in my opinion, we can't always have our best attackers in AFCON and expect to compete!


2.) 01 May 2021 16:19:32
Zambia have not qualified for the upcoming AFCON.


3.) 01 May 2021 16:27:35
Actually Maneminamo, Zambia didn’t qualify for the tournament so he’d be available.


4.) 01 May 2021 15:40:07
Zambia does not mean AFCON as they didn’t qualify.

{Ed002's Note - Forthunately the club signing him is less concerned about that.}


5.) 01 May 2021 17:33:09
They don't need to be concerned if Zambia didn't qualify do they 🤪.


6.) 01 May 2021 22:40:29
Who’s signing then eds2?

{Ed002's Note - I have told you where there is interest but nothing has been agreed and Liverpool need to figure out how they will pay.}


7.) 02 May 2021 12:44:52
Correct me if I am wrong but there is more than one scheduled AFCON that lies ahead.


 

 

20 Jan 2021 20:53:42
eds is there any truth in Origi to Inter. I hope so I have been saying his not good enough for the last 2 years now and we should have sold after the champions league win. will go down as a club legend. But he is 26 soon and he needs to be playing I think his had about 15 minutes of Prem football this season and his way down the pecking order now and with Jota back soon I can't see him getting to much more time in the second half of the season.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely.}


1.) 20 Jan 2021 22:52:44
I don't see Origi has much options at LFC. He is not good enough to be our back up. He is not suited to our type of play either. I hope he decides to move on, we cash in and good luck to him.


2.) 21 Jan 2021 00:19:47
I think he is good enough to be a back up if he’s completely on board. I just think he’s a bit sick of being a back up as he knows no matter what he does he won’t be first choice. That has to be demotivating.
Either way a move would be good for all at this point.


3.) 21 Jan 2021 08:27:03
Cant knock a guy who only gets 3 minutes to make an impact each week.


4.) 21 Jan 2021 09:50:33
LancasterRed there's a reason for that because when he has played in the past year especially he's been terrible. The ball bounces off him he doesn't rally look interested anymore maybe he's given up the fight.


5.) 21 Jan 2021 11:45:06
Origi is adequate. You will struggle to get someone who is better to sit on the bench. Also, to sit on the bench without kicking up a fuss is worth its wait in gold.
Tbh, for himself he should probably look to play reg at his age. Whatever he decides I'll support him!


6.) 21 Jan 2021 16:14:11
Origi needs to go for his own sake. I said when Rodgers signed him he’d be poor and he hasn’t changed my opinion. Yes he’s scored some important goals and that is why I wish him luck where ever he ends up, but he’s not the quality we need and I can’t see where he’d fit in a top half of the table prem team? Someone who’ll always give an honest and not red tinted view on the matter is ed25, wonder if he thinks he’s good enough to get in the Everton team? Doubt it to be honest.


7.) 21 Jan 2021 16:54:34
“ can't knock a guy who only gets 3 minutes to make an impact each week”

He gets to make an impact every day at training.
Clearly not doing so and hasn’t done so in a long time.
All he’s doing now is taking up a squad place.


8.) 21 Jan 2021 17:33:19
Pegleg Ed25 will tell you he’s a donkey who would struggle to hold down a place at Accrington Stanley!
The reality is probably somewhere in between. On form he’s a decent backup for a top team but to start every week he needs to go a level down. West Ham, Villa, Everton, Palace etc.

{Ed025's Note - hes not good enough for accrington BP, no seriously he would do a job for the likes of sheffield united or norwich mate but certainly not the mighty blues..


9.) 21 Jan 2021 21:05:22
The reason he only gets 3 minutes is because his not good enough by a very long shot. If he was any good he would get more minutes Klopp does not play him for any other reason Jota has proved that.


 

 

15 Jan 2021 08:55:12
Ed002 with our HG issue at the minute it is 17 are the league planning on lowering that. I can see a few of are non HG players leaving in the summer Adrian looks like his all ready dropped down the pecking order Same as Origi and Gini looks half out the door. Come the summer Ed is there any HG players we are looking towards as every player we seem to be connected with seems non HG. Cheers Ed.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - The FA want to reduce the number of Non-HG players from 17 to 13 and, typically each year, the Premier League clubs reject this - but only ever by a majority vote and not unanimously. What I do expect to happen moving forward is (a) a continued push to lower the maximum number on non Home Grown players from 17 to 13, (b) an increase in the number of "Club Developed" (having been with the club for a year before turning 19) players which currently only impacts UEFA competition, and (eventually) (c) changing to matchday squad such that a minimum number of Home Grown players must start the game (say four), and a minimum number of Club Developed players (say four again) need to be in the match day squad. There are already rules surrounding this in other countries. The reason why Liverpool have not got a full strength squad in the Champions League is that they only have seven HG players and only two of those (Caoimhin Kelleher and Trent Alexander-Arnold) are Club Developed.

Although Liverpool will look to changes going forward the likes of Ben White, Michael Olise and Ricky-Jade Jones are the only HG ones I can think of at present - and all have interest from other clubs as well.}


1.) 15 Jan 2021 12:50:47
Liverpool will have a difficult time trying to move players on this summer I think a few players are coming to the end of there careers/ at an impasse a need playing time or just need to move on for the sake of there careers
Adrian - thanks for the super cup but is at the back end of his career
Milner - yes I love the guy but he might want to think about playing a season for leeds or staying with us, on big wages
Origi - scored some important goals but doesn't really get a game for us needs to move to play week in week out
Phillips - done well so far this year but will be moved on
Gini - seems to be like the club and player can't agree so should move on
Karuis - need a complete refresh
Grujic - messed about by us needs a fresh start (do think he'll become a top player)
Wilson - messed about by us
Taiwo - never going be able to play for us
Larouci - wanted to leave anyway
Lewis - needs move on for his sake to kick start his career
Arroyo - never going to play for us.


2.) 15 Jan 2021 13:57:42
We badly need some of our current young players to make the grade - trent helps massively and I think there is little chance that Jones won't cut it. But with Elliot, neco Williams, kelleher, cain and Clarkson all hovering around that area where they need to start stepping up or risk fading back, we desperately need at least two of them to come through even if we need to take risks to give them the field time they need to develop. Personally I think kelleher and elliot will be fine as long as we get elliot back next season and let him play, but Clarkson should get a lot more focus than he gets now as someone who could be lead through.

{Ed0666's Note - why do we desperately need two of the kids to come through?


3.) 15 Jan 2021 16:40:12
Because otherwise we're going to end up spending millions replacing players who currently count towards our homegrown quota like milner who play enough that they need replacing but not enough to warrant the price tag that a hg replacement for them would incur. We need to do some future proofing as well as reacting to the problems we have now if we want any chance of actually seeing real benefit of a very talented generation of young players rather than trying to react every season to challenges we knew about for 3 of 4 years but did nothing to prepare for.


4.) 15 Jan 2021 21:54:20
HI Ed02,

Do Curtis Jones and Neco Williams not count as Home Grown. or are they not registered because they are U21?

{Ed002's Note - They are under 21 so.


5.) 15 Jan 2021 22:44:49
hjikle, we can offload some of them on a large transfer fee to Bournemouth once they are promoted back to the EPL.


 

 

18 Sep 2020 12:41:44
Ed002 is there any new news on players leaving seen loads of are players linked with moves away have any clubs should any real interest in any players. I see a lot about us hoping to add a wide player if we did I would think Origi's days would be numbered he all ready looks like he has fallen behind Minamino do you know if any clubs have a interest in him.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have agents working on finding their players new clubs but they are struggling to find buyers to bring much needed cash. At present efforts surround asking for loans. It has to be resolved in the next couple of weeks. I am not aware of any approached to Liverpool for DO but his agent will have been speaking with clubs.}


1.) 18 Sep 2020 13:18:56
Cheers Ed002.


 

 

12 Aug 2020 10:20:03
morning everybody
Ed002 I see reports last night that Liverpool have not opened talks with Gini yet is that true if so i finf it strange they are leaving it so late.
All so ed I see 2 reports today that Lazio are interested in Origi do you know if there is any truth in that.
thanks again ed002.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I would expect GW to be on holiday at present and his contract does not run out this summer, so I don't see it as a concern. If Klopp pushes to recruit Thiago he might have to be the one sold in any case.

I don't know of Lazio interest but it would likely rest on the departure of Ciro Immobile. They are certainly interested in others.}

For me yesterday had nothing to do with the ESL the Utd fans don't like it because there not winning things all the time this started once Chelsea became the top side in the league, poor losers just like Fergy all ways was. Even if you go back to the 70s when they got relegated the trouble they caused all over the country was one of the main reasons for the fences going up all around the country when they had more travelling fans than home fans.

grino75

1.) 03 May 2021 14:38:33
Nice balanced and unbiased post.


 

 

02 May 2021 10:08:16
eds have we got any young left backs that can move up to replace Tsimikas if he leaves this summer.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - Owen Beck looks to be stepping up this season.}


1.) 02 May 2021 11:54:03
Do you think we will see tsimikas leaving? I know beck has been doing well at U23 level.


2.) 02 May 2021 12:00:07
Beck at 18 years old has already moved ahead of Larouci and Gallacher to be the number 1 left back for our reserves. He's talented no doubt. I'd rather give him the chance than replace Tsimikas. Milner can cover both full back positions anyway.


3.) 02 May 2021 12:24:52
Norris from the 18's is highly rated isn't he.


4.) 02 May 2021 13:14:39
Both back up fullbacks out of the academy would be brilliant. As MK points out Milner can also cover both if the opposition were deemed to big for the kids (not so much Neco but young Beck) .


 

 

02 May 2021 10:36:55
I can't wait for this season to be over just hope we some how manage to make top 4.
We have loads of deadwood in the squad that we need to move on this summer. with Adrian and Wijnaldum leaving on free transfers I think the club needs not to price players out of moves Tsimikas, Keita, Shaqiri, Woodburn, Origi, Grujic, Minamino, Karius, Ojo, Wilson and Awoniyi all need to be moved on. I think Grabara should be kept at the club to replace Adrian in the squad a new central defender and left back a defensive Midfielder to compete with Fabinho is a must and a Midfielder and a striker. so with money issues the club needs to buy smart this season Konate and Bissouma look like are top targets for cb and midfield and if the reported £17.3m clause in Patson Daka contract is true we should go full on for him. I would like Sander Berge of sheff utd to am sure he will have some relegations clause in his contract so we might get a bargain there too.

grino75

1.) 02 May 2021 10:47:17
We are desperate for at least one full back. Robbo ran games before Christmas now he is burnt out.

{Ed002's Note - Someone like Tsimikas?}


2.) 02 May 2021 11:06:27
If vvd and gomez get fit i don't think we most necessarily need konate considering we still have phillips and kabak (if we buy him) . If hendo overcomes his injury and with jones being more part of the team i don't think we need bissouma either.
I only think we need to replace whoever of the front three that leaves which we hace in a way by jota and elliot.
We should keep our budget in check for a couple of years.
There are also too many players we need to sell first to recover the losses.
and then sign a striker. Some who won't cost much to bring in might take a bit of salary. Someone on the older side that can give us a solid two years. 10-15 goals.
I know there are few out there atm like suarez and aguero but don't think that's happening. Dries mertens or kramaric maybe.


3.) 02 May 2021 11:15:21
Grino you’re going to upset people mentioning the word “Deadwood”. The best fans in the world don’t like that word 🙄.

{Ed001's Note - it is just disrespectful to call people that.}


4.) 02 May 2021 11:41:11
Sorry but I totally disagree that we rely on existing midfield players coming back from injury etc. Whilst I don’t think defence will be an issue with vvd and gomez to come back, our midfield on the other hand needs some freshening up. We rely on our forwards to much to score goals and other than Salah, mane and firmino can’t score to save their lives and salah scores 1 in every 10 chances he gets. All the top teams have goalscoring or creative midfielders, Chelsea, Leicester, Utd, city. yet we dont. It’s the over reliance on our forwards that has brought us to this position where when the forwards aren’t performing, we aren’t finishing games off because our ability to score goals has been limited by just relying on our front three.
With Gini going, it doesn’t really impact us in terms of attacking prowess because whilst he has scored some important goals, he doesn’t score that often and is very hit and miss in games. Curtis Jones I don’t believe is quite good enough yet, again he shows glimpses but he’s no game changer. Henderson needs to play as when he is not the pitch, we look like a different team. Personally, Thiago, Fabinho and Henderson is solid midfield but where are the goals coming from? Plus Henderson is also fairly prone to injuries too. So I think we need to bring in a goal scoring and/ or creative midfielder, as well as an out and out striker, who will bang in goals, especially with the number of chances we create, as we also rely too much on our full backs to create the chances. If that means selling players to fund these purchases, so be it, I would happily sell mane, firmino, and some of the fringe players to fund the buying of new players.


5.) 02 May 2021 11:56:35
These players are Human beings, deadwood is such a gaming word.

The reality is this summer will change some of these players for life! The sad reality of some of them not going to make it at Liverpool e. g Woodburn is tough especially for someone that young in the grand scheme of things.

They have to grow up so fast, I wish every player the best of futures whoever leaves.


6.) 02 May 2021 12:33:27
Noucl, i totslly agree. We have struggled for a while in getting any kind of goal returns from our midfield.

Jones scored sone when he first came into the team but was played further forward. We rely to much on our front 3 for goals.

I wonder how many times any player from midfield got past 7/ 8 goals for the season.

A lot has been written about the lack of goals and the injuries for the defenders, but midfield is where i think most of our problems are.


 

 

26 Apr 2021 12:11:29
Ed001 after finally calming down after the weekends I see a post saying about Fabinho can't play cb but I think the problem is with him and Henderson out of midfield there is no protection to the back 4. Am are problems did start once Fabinho and Henderson where not in there. I know the game should have been out of Site by the end of the first half but after we got away with the disallowed goal in stoppage time no way should we have conceded again. If this season has showed us anything are squad players are nowhere near the level needed. As for the front 4 I feel like it is all down to confidence and I feel that could all change in one game just hope it's at the weekend. Is there any update on injuries Henderson and Phillips any chance for the weekend.
Cheers Ed
YNWA.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - it is both mate, Fabs is a great midfielder but nowhere near a Prem-level centre-back. Players run off the back of him at will and he constantly throws himself into needless tackles in midfield, leaving wide open spaces behind him. He is simply not cut out to play there and teams are targeting him now they have worked it out. Even if we had another him in front of him, he simply would not work as a defender, it does not suit his style of playing.

Henderson is nowhere near ready mate, but Phillips is a possible.}


1.) 26 Apr 2021 13:23:34
Klopp bottled it again playing him at cb!
Top mid but not so cb!
And your right with your point the squad is no where near good enough! Same 12/ 13 players carrying the team the last year!


2.) 26 Apr 2021 13:26:25
First time poster.
I agree with this post.
Fabinho in the middle gives the defence and Alison confidence and protection, but I think the biggest miss is Henderson. I think everyone misses his oganisation and his constant vocal instructions. Praising the good things and berating the bad things. I feel the forwards are missing this the most.


3.) 26 Apr 2021 15:57:16
Oh Jay dub red, give it a rest with this Klopp bottled it nonsense cos none of that is even true. Who was he supposed to play? Ben Davies that no one has seen play yet? Williams who is slower than me with bad knees? Please, enlighten us on what you would have done cos clearly, you have the info and access Klopp has to these players.

Also, had our forwards did the business, you would not be saying what you are saying now. We had enuff chances to win two games vs Newcastle and we did not take ANY of them (Salah's chance was not even a chance, IMO), end of.


4.) 26 Apr 2021 17:41:52
Tell him oli lad some proper plebs about.


5.) 26 Apr 2021 17:47:38
"Klopp" and "bottled it" don't belong in the same sentence.
You don't turn also rans into champions without bottle.
You're calling Klopp a coward because he did something different to what you wanted, which is a bit bizarre.


6.) 26 Apr 2021 18:55:44
Am I right in saying we won all our recent games in the Premier league? Its not by chance.


7.) 27 Apr 2021 09:18:55
Spot on, FlashThered. People may disagree with Klopp's choices and that is fine BUT to start hurling baseless, childish insults at a man who turned us from basket case into Champions of Everywhere is cowardly and disgraceful.


 

 

24 Apr 2021 19:52:55
ed002 is there any truth in the story that FSG just turned down a £3b offer for the club before all the ESL stuff. As you have stated in the past they will look to move the club on once there is no more great profit margins to gain that would give them a massive profit on what they got the club for. Do you think now the ESL has not come off and I don't think it will any time soon do you think they will be open to selling the club.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any £3B offer. Typically such offers would be subject to lengthy discussion and consideration rather than just a random offer which is what is being suggested.}


1.) 24 Apr 2021 20:12:50
If 3 billion was something offered to FSG I’d imagine it would be a figure they’d accept! It’s obviously a non-story.
But 3 billion would get somebody the club!
FSG bought the club for around 300 million. Yes they invested in the stadium, training ground and a handful of top players. But how much of that will have been out of their own pocket?
Reckon if a legitimate offer of 3 billion was made (of course it would take a long time to finalise anything concrete) but it’d be something that would be accepted by FSG.


2.) 24 Apr 2021 20:25:31
It seems convenient for that story too come out at this specific time when fsg under pressure an the fans want them to sell up, clickbait until proven otherwise 🤔.


3.) 24 Apr 2021 20:34:17
Moreton Red, what makes you think that FSG who acquired a depreciating asset which is what LFC was when they bought it, worked their socks off to expunge most of the debt, financed it and made it a successful business on and off the pitch to be worth 2.2bn (7 times its worth at purchase) sell it for just 3bn esp if they don’t need to sell and with new investment has been made into parent company/ owner which is FSG?

They literally rebuilt this club from scratch ploughing enormous amounts of money into it along with huge investments into its facilities (doesn’t matter if the dough is theirs or not) so if anyone wants to make an offer to them as things stand, 3bn. If anyone wants to buy LFC right now, they are going to need to make FSG an offer they can’t refuse in order to make the highest profit and sorry, 3bn won’t cut it, IMO.

{Ed001's Note - they haven't ploughed money into it, they have loaned it money.}


4.) 24 Apr 2021 21:28:51
Ed2. I thought my dreams came true and then I remembered any such interest let alone offer you would have known and informed us so until otherwise it’s just click bait. If a £3 Billion offer was to come in the future do you think that would be a good valuation of the club that FSG would accept?

{Ed002's Note - I would think they would do.}


5.) 24 Apr 2021 23:50:55
Thank you Eds for the info. Interesting times indeed.


6.) 25 Apr 2021 00:13:44
media making the most of liverpool fans clicking away online me thinks.


7.) 25 Apr 2021 09:15:22
If the eds say they haven't heard anything about a 3 billion offer it must be true! no one on here has any privileged information about this or transfers, just wait and see what happens, we can all get info of the internet and post it like we know everything.

{Ed077's Note - I am pretty sure a deal as huge as that doesnt come about overnight.}


8.) 25 Apr 2021 09:16:35
If they sold a 10% stake at 500m then that places the valuation (from FSG ) at 5bn.


Can't see them selling for less and Def not 3bn as that's almost half of FSG evaluation of the club.

{Ed077's Note - was the 10% stake for the whole of FSG's different ventures or just LFC?}


9.) 25 Apr 2021 09:24:41
Would they be able to use contactless or would it be more a bank transfer kind of deal?


10.) 25 Apr 2021 09:23:11
ED077 - you're right it was a 10% stake of FSG not Liverpool specifically so I shall retract what I said, maybe they would take 3bn just for the club.

{Ed077's Note - I would think 3bn is slightly overpriced for LFC so FSG would accept that sort of a bid.}


11.) 25 Apr 2021 09:49:30
They didn't sell 10% of Liverpool for 500m, they sold 10% of fsg for 540m.


12.) 25 Apr 2021 12:42:33
I find it hilarious that people believe that a person/ company would just suddenly make a 3 billion bid for the club like it was an item on eBay.


13.) 25 Apr 2021 12:55:31
Classic valuations for company purchase start at 3 times average annual sales or 5 times average annual profits. Do the math. Both sales and profits are depressed because of the current global situation. A premier "property" like LFC would attract a premium, and I've seen companies sometimes pay 10 times annual profits for something they really want to buy. But still. Very difficult to get anything done now.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not profit making. So on that basis you value them on 10x the loss?}


14.) 25 Apr 2021 17:05:02
Ed002, nope, I'm not a buyer. But I value the club at around 1.25 to 1.5 billion, based on 500 to 600 million revenue per annum the past 3 years, minus debt. And with the caveat that the stadiums reopen for next season, so all 3 revenue streams are restarted, not just broadcasting and commercial. Same principle as in 2010 when FSG bought the club. 600 million for 3 years revenue minus the 237 million odd they owed the banks. And you get to around 300 million.

{Ed002's Note - The value of the club is seen as higher than that without the caveat about the stadium being open. The same is true of other sides. There are some goups of vultures looking at good investments, but I am not so sure the major English sides fall in to that category - only one has had a significant firm offer and that was rejected. There are several groups wanting to make a killing and Liverpool are no in bed with Red Bird. Others look better positioned but are looking to exploiting better valued clubs with growth potential, like West Ham.}


15.) 25 Apr 2021 19:00:29
Well, you know, Ed002, that we're in the kind of economic and financial environment when vultures do come out to play and see what they can find. But I agree with you that no EPL team should be sold at a discount and it doesn't look like any owner needs to either. Being an EPL team owner is like having a "golden egg" in global sports (many of my American friends may differ with me on this) . This despite your having explained many times that earnings and future earnings potentials are tapering off. It's still the ultimate "status" and relatively stable, investment.

{Ed002's Note - Right - but once it peaks owners will look at option.}

Ed002 don’t know if it’s just the normal crap on the internet if not transfer comes at a strange time of the season with only 6 games to go so if so I think it would be FSG trying to reflect what they have done and am sure it will work on a lot of fans.

ed002 would you have any clue on this what value would you put on Xherdan Shaqiri Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Takumi Minamino. and what would you think the club will put on them.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the club will value the players at, but none are worth a great deal but might just raise enough money to pay off the debt taken on last summer on Jota and Thiago.

I just don't think his going to stay ed don't think it has worked out for him ed and with all the trouble we have had this season I don't think Klopp would have loaned him out if he was in his long term plans with how things where at the end of January. At 26 ed he does not need loans needs a club to settle down for his prime years.

{Ed001's Note - he needs to settle in England, that is the problem.}

ed001 I had big hopes for Minamino but I think his time at the club is done. We have far to many first team squad players that don't play enough games to keep. Ox has been fit for a good bit now ed and I don't know why he has not been given much game time. for me ed Minamino Origi Shaq and harry Wilson I would be happy for all 4 to go don't know what we would get for them but must be around £40m+ and a 1 good Striker to replace them all would good business don't know how many minutes they have played between them over the last 2/ 3 season but I don't think it will be a great deal. I hope we keep are front 3 and with Jota Elliot coming back from loan and a new striker that would be perfect for me.

{Ed001's Note - surely better 'business' would be to offload Origi, Shaq and Wilson and just keep Minamino?}

My grandad all ways use to go on about how good he was ed and he was a Leeds fan and use to go all the time so he got to see a lot of great players. Sadly before my time but I all ways look back on 80s football from when I was growing up and wonder how the players would get on back then Ed they all ways say if some of the footballers could play today but I bet a lot more could play today than what could play if you sent them back to the 60s 70s and 80s.

{Ed001's Note - my grandad loved him too, he was there pitchside during the group stage games in '66 and always told me Eusebio was possibly the best player in the world.}

Ed002 I don’t get the abuse you getting for pointing out facts but even if they are just your opinions the abuse is out of order we are all entitled to our own opinions. I don’t get the problem about the super league how many times have teams outside the big 6 got into the champions league since it started nearly 30 years ago I can just think of Everton once and Leicester once. So it’s nothing new any way just more teams in it. And am sure the premier league would benefit as well with the top side earning more money bringing better players in and that would help better tv deals in the long run.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - but the Premier League would take legal action to kick the clubs out.}

ed077 to be fair to Brewster's it was an awful move for the lad never had a run of starts for Sheff Utd. Last season when everybody seemed to think Chris Wilder was the best thing since sliced bread they scored 39 goals in the league and this season up to now only 17. Brewster has only 47 minutes per game this season with only 10 starts. I don't think Wilder has given him much of a chance Henry did not score in his first 8 games for that great Arsenal side. It was a shame that Brewster never moved to Brighton I think both could have had a lot better seasons.

{Ed077's Note - "natural finisher" is struggling to get into to a team struggling for goals and people moan about Klopp not keeping him and playing him. If he isnt ready yet to contribute for a bottom half team in PL then how much of an impact would he have had for the defending champions.

And dont forget he did fetch a fair chunk of money that helped bring in the likes of Jota, Thiago, etc..}
