Thinking about clubs who develop young players. I understand if they lose them soon after they turn a certain age (18?) they get a fee set by the tribunal. Are they then entitled to any more money eg when the new club on-sells the player. For example, Chelsea got a fee when Solanke signed for LFC, so will they be entitled to a cut of the Bournemouth transfer fee?


{Ed001's Note - yes, any clubs that develop players up to a certain age (if I remember correctly is 21 but I would need to check that to be sure) get a cut of 5% of any future transfer fees paid.}

Thanks mate.

Eds - on the past LFC have been rightly criticised for the way its been run. Just wondering what your opinion is on how professional it is now? Does it still have a long way to go, would you say its on the right path, what still needs to be addressed to see it being respected for the way its run?


{Ed002's Note - I really would not go there.}

One of the best ran club around.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 01:07:12
I believe the general consensus was that we are being run far better now than we were previously but we are far from perfect. Situations like the VVD signing impacted our reputation etc but we are in a much better place than we were 5 years ago! Putting a few trophies behind us will also make the owners expenditure seem more worthwhile but we have spent a lot more than people realise.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 05:11:18
I think the owners have thrown an awful lot of money into the club but we are miles away from being most well run club. I mean i could see all this tumbling down if don't win anything of credit for next two three seasons. If i read correctly last season was after a long time club made some profit, i thing we are on the right path though to being ideally run.

1) The number are getting better (we are in profits)
2) They made the right call to get the best manager at a time we were really poor
3) They are giving him time to build with no pressure of sacking.
4) They made the money available for Klopp to get the players he wanted (2 world record fees)
5) Added capacity to the stadium and may still add more.
6) We are on the verge of getting best kit deal

Obviously there hasn't been a trophy yet and I'm sure there are a few negatives as well but looks well run to me. let's not forget the mess the previous owners left us in.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 01:56:22
Thanks Ed002.

Sustained success, proper behavior when attaining players, a supportive youth system, and careful expenditure is what would merit a well run club in my opinion and I’m not sure we ar even close to being there yet. I’m also of the opinion that things have improved since Peter Moore came in.

{Ed025's Note - proper behavior is a matter of conjecture aoe..

7.) 03 Jan 2019 10:31:24
I’d say we’re on right track but as always there’s much more to be done. On the plus side we have a manager players want to play for and who is capable of embracing and leveraging the emotional energy of the club whilst simultaneously freeing the players from the burden of history. We also have had a few very successful recruitment windows thanks to Gordon, Edwards and Klopp working together more cohesively. I can only put this down to Gordon and Edwards learning from previous errors.

The sponsorship deals still look a bit average but we’ll have to give Peter Moore a chance to change that.

The stadium has improved without affecting the atmosphere. There’s still a bit more to be done there.

Reading between the lines here I get the feeling that Henry, Gordon, Edwards and Klopp are not well liked across Europe for various reasons. Whether this is a problem really depends on where football is heading and whether the club is losing opportunities. Clearly recruitment is big business and there’s a whole level of brinkmanship that we fans do not see. In other industries Americans and Europeans do business and negotiations quite differently. Perhaps that is part of the issue.

Ed2 answered this question in depth about a month ago.

phil - in my day that was known as a 'hospital pass' 😄.

The Australian cricket team (amongst others) has certain traditions eg each new starter is presented with their baggy green cap by an ex player, MOTM is given a special jacket to wear to dinner that night etc. Does Liverpool have anything similar?


1.) 20 Dec 2018 04:36:57
Yes Mo gets rubbed in on Social media by Lovren every time he wins or does anything of note :)

2.) 20 Dec 2018 06:46:09
I think it’s the usual for footy teams where they have to sing a song for the lads. Shaq’s Rendition of 3 little birds was class in the summer 😂.



18 Sep 2018 23:59:42
Ed001 I suppose this is only loosely linked to LFC nowadays but was just wondering how Danny Ward is going over at Leicester?


{Ed001's Note - he has only played in the League Cup so a slow start. But they were expecting to lose Schmeichel in the summer so this was not the plan for him.}

1.) 19 Sep 2018 07:43:46
Poor guy just can't get a decent go can he?



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.

He is too good for the u23 - great passer, good game management. He looks frustrated but Im not convinced he has a future with us. Ed001 might know better.


{Ed001's Note - he did look like he might have a chance but Fabinho has taken his place I think.}

Suso is a completely different type of player. His lack of speed isn't a drawback in his current league. I reckon that ship has sailed.

Juanma is 20 (? ) but injuries have set back his progress. The others are only 19 so we shouldn't be expecting too much from them.

Why would he? Both Gomez and Matip are due back before Feb. No way they will sign a player just to cover the time they are off. They will look to U23 before that.

oh sorry I think I misread your post. Im guessing you are talking about David Brooks who plays for Bournemouth?

I don't think Macca was saying we will be going for him. Rather that he hopes we will.


{Ed0333's Note - oh damn I just put my life savings on Werner signing this week.

There looks like there is a good player in Juanma but everytime he starts to show it, he gets injured. Masterson has a nice pass but he seems to go walkabout to much for me. Neither of them look ready for me. Nat Phillips has big raps but has suffered injuries too and so haven't seen enough of him to know.

Id say Lallana knows he needs to look elsewhere for game time. Kloop clearly still respects Milner but it wouldn't surprise me if he chooses to go elsewhere too (I know he is tough as boots but his age is starting to catchup to him) . Hendo has looked much better recently when he is playing as part of a double pivot - more willing to take risks, make runs forward etc. The change in defensive tactics in some ways has helped him (as the breaks in intensity seem to have helped him keep up with the play and his game control actually is important in the new style) . But again it wouldn't surprise me if he chooses to go - much will depend on how much game time he sees for the rest of the season.

With all the hype about Duncan, don't overlook his partner in crime Paul Glatzel. He is also looking very good and for me, slightly more advanced.
