Morning Ed,

'The story revolves around a young man who constantly cheats while whining he gets no respect for his skill in cheating. '

Got me that mate hahaha! I don't know how the little sh*t has the nerve! Just who does he think he is lol it winds me up, it's one of them for me.

Thanks Ed, have a good Friday mate.

{Ed001's Note - ah he is a super hero now mate!}

14 Sep 2018 08:48:41
Great start to a Friday! Thanks Tris!

Loved your comments on Renato “No Weakness” Sanches.

{Ed001's Note - I actually had to stop myself from getting carried away as there was such a huge list of things I could have written!}

14 Sep 2018 09:42:28
Cheers Ed001, great read.

{Ed001's Note - thank you Eamon.}

14 Sep 2018 09:48:45
I like the wheel of misfortune idea, I think it would be a good idea though for each player to take a spin regardless at the beginning of the week, then further spins for bad behaviour.

{Ed001's Note - good idea mikey. It has worked really well for Burnley using it. It was a team bonding exercise for them as the players also got to set some of the forfeits to make it more fun. And Dyche changed them regularly.

A club like Liverpool could stand to gain a huge amount from using a similar idea. They would triple the amount of income through the club shop if people were going there knowing there was a good chance that one of the players would be putting in a shift behind the counter!}

14 Sep 2018 10:38:30
I think your idea for the comic book is much better than tatoos coming to life. Maybe the tatoos will do the diving and whining. Also agree 100% on Real Salt Lake. Stupid name. There are quite a few names in MLS that should be reviewed.

{Ed001's Note - I thought my idea was better as well. Maybe I should write some comic books....

As for Real Salt Lake, so glad someone else agrees, everytime I read it I cringe.}

14 Sep 2018 11:32:37
Yeah ed it might make the players more grounded as well. Better that the managers make up the rules rather than the players though, otherwise we would have forfeits like “take the blame for player Xs next drink driving charge” or “claim them pink frilly knickers player Xs Mrs found are yours”.

{Ed001's Note - well the manager can reject the stupid suggestions but having some silly forfeits that are embarrassing for the player to fulfil while all his mates are watching and filming it can be good for team bonding.}

14 Sep 2018 13:03:26
Ed, what about a graphic novel kind of like the Walking Dead. Maybe call it The Spoiled Brat, or The Flop.

Have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - I like your thinking.}

14 Sep 2018 13:26:51
Thanks Ed001.

Your homage to ‘Marky-Mark’ has not gone unnoticed mate 😉😂.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't think anyone had spotted that. It is actually AS Roma's homage. They have an ex-LFC employee who runs their social media and he is superb at it.}

14 Sep 2018 03:02:24
If you get a chance check out the last couple of U23 matches. They are playing some great footy. Mind you that West Ham goalie Trott looks like he will be a very good shotstopper.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Sep 2018 20:25:14
Any truth in the report that the team lost faith in Karius, not because of his blunders, but because of his inability to keep a low profile whilst on holiday during the summer, allegedly porting a strange Instagram video?

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}

Agree2 Disagree5

13 Sep 2018 21:01:26
Did you not see that video.

Top top quality 🤣.

14 Sep 2018 06:39:58
Somebody pl÷ase describe this alleged video.

{Ed001's Note - it was just him training then eating ice cream or something like that. I have seen it but it was not exactly memorable. I don't know why it is still being dredged up.}

Diego Godin

13 Sep 2018 19:09:11
{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new player profile about, Diego Godin

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Sep 2018 20:35:41
One of my favourite modern players, incredible defender. Him and Chiellini are the stand outs for me.

13 Sep 2018 20:48:49
Fantastic player, great profile, cheers ed1 mate!

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

13 Sep 2018 23:37:22
Perfect player for Atletico. Thank you Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate and you are right he is.}

14 Sep 2018 04:56:19
Good read ed1. thanks mate. I don't post a lot. but reading the profile reminded me of our own Daniel Agger. He too was excellent positionally and boy could he guide his cb partner. Such a shame injury prevented him from becoming one of the best defenders in the world.

{Ed001's Note - when fit he was one of the best, which is why he had offers from the likes of Barcelona during his time with us. It is a huge shame he had such struggles to stay fit.}

14 Sep 2018 07:43:33
So true ed. Loved the fact that he rejected Barcelona. He really did love Liverpool. One of the few who showed loyalty. Rare thing in modern times.

{Ed001's Note - one of my favourite players of all time, mainly because he was one of us getting the chance to play for LFC.}

13 Sep 2018 13:30:28
So Liverpool appoint new GK coach to work alongside archetenberg. So Ed001 do you have any insight about our new guy? . Is it start of end for an Archetenberg?

{Ed001's Note - Achterberg is in charge of the goalkeeping coaches, he is being brought in to assist him and is seen as mostly taking over with the younger players. He is highly rated by England, but not sure how much that means, considering how poor their keepers are.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2018 19:16:44
I’d say he’s decent as he spent nearly 10 years coaching the likes of De Gea and VDS at United, not a bad CV of trained keepers.

13 Sep 2018 13:14:03
Alli And Lloris ruled out of Saturday's game!

Lloris is a big miss for them but the loss of Alli could actually hurt us.
Son is back with Spurs and now likely to start in Alli's place.

Agree2 Disagree2

13 Sep 2018 14:04:22
I'd much rather face Son that Alli. Not that Son isn't a good (and arguably better) player, but he's just rejoined the team having barely even trained with them for four months and it will likely mean that someone (either Erikson, Son or Moura most likely) will be playing out of position in a deeper role, which doesn't massively suit any of them and blunts one of their better weapons. Not that I wish injury on any player (. maybe Rooney. Hate that guy) but I'm happy we aren't facing either of those two, both match winners on their day.

{Ed001's Note - why has Son not trained with them for 4 months? He was training with them right up until he went off to play for South Korea a month or so ago.}

13 Sep 2018 15:42:02
You watch, now WHEN we make an example of them we're going to hear 'Well Spurs was without Lloris, is there any wonder' kind of stuff lol you can just imagine it!

I hope the lad gets fit soon though, I wouldn't wish injury on any player either. Instead of scoring about 4 past them it may end up been 6 now ;) roll on Saturday!

13 Sep 2018 16:16:26
Did he go back to them? My mistake in that case - I thought he went from South Korea to his summer break and then straight back to South Korea for the tournament (which would mean the last time he was actually at Spurs was pre-World Cup)

{Ed001's Note - no he played at least once for Spurs before going.}

13 Sep 2018 17:54:12
I’d definitely rather face Alli then Son. Son seems to have found a certain level of consistency and is their second biggest goal scoring threat. Alli seems to have regressed slightly. Not sure why he plays as high up as he does when he could definitely make a difference further back in the midfield.

Ether way Lloris out for Vorm is a much bigger loss for them. I still think Liverpool at their best can comfortably beat Tottenham at their best, but both teams have looked well off said best. Should be an interesting game.

13 Sep 2018 19:03:04
Salah, do you really care about the excuses? In most matches, one team or the other will be without someone who would normally start. I'd take a 1-0 win, but I actually think we'll do better than that.

And as always. Great to have you back, mate :)

13 Sep 2018 20:49:58
Cheers Ep mate :) .

Perfect Reynard. Thanks for doing that.

Hi eds and reds,

Curious as to what opinions are on the rules the premier league has been rumoured to be discussing around agents as detailed in the times?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what The Times has said but the proposals are rather naive and they are getting above themselves if they are to continue to expect other FAs to follow suit and fit in with handling of agent fees and a couple of the other matters that are on the table. In terms of the issue with agents, they have become obsessed with the extreme examples and have lost sight of the norm. They should be making representation to FIFA via the FA and talking with UEFA.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2018 10:56:33
That's very fair. I don't understand enough about the operations of agents to have a proper opinion, but the proposals:-

. Agents should only be played by players, not clubs

. Implementation of exams for agents

. Requirement of an English bank account, which transactions with English based clubs should be processed through

. Annual financial statements to be prepared and sent to the FA

. Agents fees to be paid by the player over the course of the contract as opposed to a lump sum at the beginning

Were reported to have been passed to the FA by the Premier League.
No idea how true this is but it piqued my curiosity.

{Ed002's Note - I'll give it a quick shot:
(1) It is not quite as simple as this statement and does not reflect the work that agents do on behalf of clubs as well as players - it can only happen in part for non transfer related business. Some players rely very heavily on their agents on a day-by-day basis - others rarely have involvement with them - and others don't have agents at all. Many clubs use agents in many different ways - some clubs pay agents for advice of such things as managerial appointments.
(2) This means rejigging the registration process and is nothing to do with the Premier League but the subject is something that FIFA are looking at with significant involvement from UEFA.
(3) Noise and not of any consequence unless the Premier League know of specific issues - which I don't think they do.
(4) Annual statements in terms of transfers are recorded elsewhere already - and the FA has access to those. If the FA are looking for details of what clubs pay agents for other services or what players pay agents for other services it is a different matter - but I cannot see of what particular use it would be to them - and clubs are likely to take objection.
(5) See (1) but it is a business matter that should be the responsibility of the club and agents to work out the timing of payments between themselves - it is not a matter for the PL.

The FA cannot deal with issues such as this and much of it arises from an independent report that was produced. The issue with that report was it obsessed over one particular transfer and did not consider the "norm" as much as it should. They also failed to discuss good progress that has been made in terms of ending agents having part ownership of players, open accounting etc.. If they want to do something useful they could outlaw any business being done with the gutter end of the business where we have the likes of certain "parties" using Deportivo Maldonado to abuse the rules at the expense of the careers of players (Jonathan Calleri is still out on loan, now at Alavés). Or why not work with others to completely clear the game of the exploitation of youngsters so we never need to hear the al Bangura tale again?

Whilst they no doubt feel that they have the right motive, they are way off target in doing anything that would maje a real change.}

13 Sep 2018 12:33:10
Thank you Ed, that was very informative.

13 Sep 2018 13:15:07
Can’t add anything to what the expert Ed002 says but fro my own uninformed point of view this is the FA or the premier league trying to shut the stable door long after the pit pony has bolted 🤝.

13 Sep 2018 13:16:23
Thank you Ed002, always nice to hear about things from people with relevant knowledge.

13 Sep 2018 15:49:10
Quality information as per usual Ed2, I hope the travelling recently has been treating you well mate.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - back now.}

13 Sep 2018 16:16:46
If a player is his own agent how do clubs go about a transfer for that player? or is this the only exception allowed for a club to contact the player directly since he is his own agent?

Hope that makes sense lol?

{Ed002's Note - (a) During negotiations they would be representated by a member of their family or a legal advisor working on a day rate - or very rarely take it all on themselves. (b) No, the club cannot directly approach the player, they would need to go via the club he is registered to.}

13 Sep 2018 16:28:52
Brilliant thanks ed!

{Ed002's Note - In some countries there is a rule that lawyers must be involved.}

Good morning Ed, lots of news today mate and a fantastic piece on Mane, love the fella! he's come a long way from nothing that's for sure, I think at this point in time he's at the best point of his career so far, yet something is telling me the best is yet to come! top player.

Thank you very much mate, I hope you have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, it was lucky I woke early today. First time I was ever up before the alarm went off!}

13 Sep 2018 07:44:41
Thanks Ed! Have a good one mate!

{Ed001's Note - you too mate take care.}

13 Sep 2018 07:58:30
What is Neymar going to do?! Shall we start a just giving page for him? Poor guy!

{Ed001's Note - I think the pic sums up what he will do.}

13 Sep 2018 08:14:49
Cheers Ed, the was either an interview or something I read about a year or so ago regarding Mane, it said what you said on your review but also went into a bit more depth. How he actually ended up running away and travelling across to the main city so he could play and then his friend or brother told his dad and they went and got him and brought him back. He really did have to fight hard for where he is now and for him still to be as humble as he is speaks volumes.

As for Neymar Jr, the fact he started his rant with "there's no way I'm going to stand for a situation like this" haha great choice of words, that's the problem you Muppet.

Thanks again mate.

{Ed001's Note - it tells you the difference between the two and why Mane is above Neymar in my choice of left wingers!}

13 Sep 2018 09:33:52
I can understand Mane's parents point of we but glad he kept his determination and was able to make it as a footballer.

13 Sep 2018 09:44:22
Thanks Ed. Some really interesting stuff there. I like Deeney's honesty. Sounds like Lloris probably had 15 too! Deeney was unlucky not to get an England call up based on current form. What's Wellbeck done to get the nod? Have a good one.

{Ed001's Note - not sure I agree. Deeney was fat and overweight when Mazzarri came in, but he was trying to pin the blame on Mazzarri as he was the one who pointed it out, so Deeney blamed him. And Mazzarri had no say in transfers, so wasn't trying to sell him, the owners do all the recruitment there.}

13 Sep 2018 10:40:03
For me, it is infuriating that Neymar says that the referee showed a lack of respect for issuing a yellow card. I'd argue that it is in fact Neymar who continually shows a lack of respect to the football world for his playacting and cheating. Thanks Ed, have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - spot on mate. He is just a spoilt little tit who needs to grow up.}

13 Sep 2018 11:22:01
Great review again Ed001 mate. Neymar has 8 expressions. I'm not sure it'll get through but I uploaded them on the sightings page ;)

{Ed001's Note - was one of them the same as the pic I chose?}

13 Sep 2018 12:00:07
lol, I think you're right Ed001 mate!

{Ed001's Note - maybe that's what should be done to him next time he is on the ground play acting? Drag him up and off the pitch. He would be less inclined to do it again due to the embarrassment it would cause.}

13 Sep 2018 12:34:23
Never thought I'd hate and despite a Brazilian star.

I grew up with my father watching games with lots of Brazilian players, especially the World Cups, and me, my father, and my brother love almost all of them.

What a disgrace.

13 Sep 2018 14:25:37
Just watched Neymar's ridiculous dive in the El Salvador game. To be fair, I think I spotted a sniper in the crowd. ;)
I do hope Tite was shaking his finger at the child actor and not the ref.

13 Sep 2018 19:15:06
Mane tells a fantastic story about how he tried to make it in this video (also available on the official Liverpool site if you're a member) . Its around the 7.40 mark for those interested.

13 Sep 2018 19:50:48
Regarding Bolton and administration.
I always thought that a massive point reduction (almost always relegating the team) and a transfer ban is a bit heavy.
I mean, it’s really kicking you when you’re down and certainly not going to improve their circumstances.
I’m not sure if an alternative though.
What’s your thoughts on it Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I get what you are saying but it needs to be tough to deter others.}
