Wow great rumour (aka nonsense) from the express this morning . Liverpool plan £215m bid for Mbappe which will see salah go to Real Madrid. Quality. I thought you only had to come here for made up rumours .


1.) 08 Nov 2019 09:30:16
but you're secretly hoping one of the eds verifies this in the positive aye. lol :p.

2.) 08 Nov 2019 10:11:28
I'd hate to see Salah go to be honest, been outstanding for us.

3.) 08 Nov 2019 11:04:20
But if he did leave this guy would surely be an upgrade which is hard to come by.

4.) 09 Nov 2019 07:17:40
Upgrade is a bit harsh, Salah has been quality for sure, but if he is set on leaving then we need a replacement that is at least as good.

Who knows what FSG have planned. Didn't they just off and buy Alisson without the club's involvement. I know any spending needs to be reconciled under FFP but if they shelled out what could be over £60m for a keeper then perhaps they will go big for a striker. But £200m+? I'd love the likes of Mbappe, but I'm not sure how I feel about the club/ owners spending that sort of money.

I know getting a world class CB and keeper was much needed but I would argue that those were special cases that were needed to complete picture - the missing pieces of the puzzle.

I hope we don't have to spend crazy money on outfield players in the future. I don't see how it's sustainable.

5.) 09 Nov 2019 08:16:07
You can't say the club won't spend that money but the 200m would be offset by any Salah sale so.

wont happen anyways!

6.) 09 Nov 2019 12:29:41
His wages would blow our wage structure out the window, which would have a massive knock on effect, yer living on abs cloud cookoo land if ye think this has any possibility what so ever.

7.) 09 Nov 2019 16:03:40
There is no question we are interested. Who wouldn't be? I think the wooing began a long time ago.

Klopp's comments probably to avoid annoying PSG, as Real Madrid appears to have done.

If Mbappe comes, it will doubtless be financed by players leaving. Or by sponsorship. At any rate, I would leave the money aspect to others.

8.) 09 Nov 2019 20:29:11
I agree port red, he’d want astronomical wages and then that really does open Pandora’s box.

9.) 10 Nov 2019 03:50:06
Mbappe is not coming to Liverpool.

10.) 11 Nov 2019 07:49:58
Spot on Reynard, klopp himself has killed this rumour before it gets out of hand.
He will join Real Madrid for the 2020/ 21 season and no we won't be signing Bale either.



29 Oct 2018 09:25:37
Read a rumour that there is an agreement between Liverpool and Salah that he will be allowed to leave at the end of the season if Barcelona or real come calling. Any truth to it? I'd imagine it's a Spanish paper trying to stir things up.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 10:10:31
I seen that yesterday mate annoying isn't it I would like too think he wants too stay with us.

2.) 29 Oct 2018 10:30:31
So as soon as he's back in the goals more regularly he gets linked with a move by newspapers? Shock horror. I wouldn't worry about it mate.

3.) 29 Oct 2018 10:44:38
Liverpool may sell to "anyone" should "anyone" make an unbelievable offer, why limit ourselves to Real and Barcelona only? I think we are getting ourselves into a position that players would want to stay as we are starting to look like the real deal, whereas Real look like a bloody mess. Does Modric want out?

4.) 29 Oct 2018 12:36:05
When will people learn about reading this tripe and believing it enough to ask if there’s any truth. Let’s see if either club can raise the 150-200 mil to make an offer before we start hitting a panic button. Besides weren’t most of the press reporting him as a 1 season wonder last week?

{Ed002's Note - It will be based on his efforts to move to Spain and having his agent speak with both clubs. I have explained that the package being asked for saw RA laughed out of the building.}

5.) 29 Oct 2018 13:37:43
Players come and go, they are transient. Very few will have genuine loyalty to 1 club, especially it seems, when Barcelona and Real madrid come calling.
I do not believe this story, but even if it were true, find a replacement and move on. It happens all the time in football.

6.) 29 Oct 2018 17:28:45
i know it is annoying mate isn't it. I normally wouldn't pay attention and assume that its a spanish paper trying to unrest the player as they want him at RM / Barcelona and using the lack of goal celebrations as an indication he wants to leave.

7.) 29 Oct 2018 19:00:16
The end of the season is a long way away 👍.

8.) 29 Oct 2018 20:08:13
Why would he leave the Champions of England and Europe to join Real Madrid in the Europa League?

9.) 29 Oct 2018 20:56:31
I like the optimism MK, but you're jumping the gun a little there lad. Still 28 games to go in the league.

10.) 29 Oct 2018 17:44:57
RA Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - His agent.}

11.) 30 Oct 2018 07:25:00
Cheers Ed002.

12.) 30 Oct 2018 09:32:54
I was replied too as being paranoid for mentioning the salah Barcelona thing also Madrid wanted him and paul merson spouting out in press salah looked unhappy, but ed 02 has been telling us for a long time salah and his agent flirting with the club's mentioned and we have seen this thing before with coutihno, Suarez, mascerano, Alonso etc so nothing surprises me with players loyalty too staying with us.

13.) 30 Oct 2018 11:53:48
Will be surprised if Barcelona can afford Salah this summer.

Maybe they will offer Suarez and Coutinho in part exchange but I don’t see us going for that.

Barca have some rebuilding to do.

Think both Barcelona and Madrid see several EPL clubs coming up fast and Champions League maybe between Juve LFC and Citeh over the next couple of seasons with Chelski back in the frame next year.

14.) 30 Oct 2018 12:17:14
Don't worry about it Hailstones, some people do overreact when you mention a star player could leave the club. You and TOM27 only mentioned you read a newspaper article.
None of us can say for certain that Salah, Mane, Firminho etc will be Liverpool players next season. The better they play the more stories we will see of Barca, Real, Psg looking to buy them. The 2 spanish are allegedly the dream for nearly every player, for whatever reason.

15.) 30 Oct 2018 16:41:12
ed002 do you see it getting harder for to many big galactico signing now with the price of players madrid need a few new signings and to take the best players of teams now would mean one hell of a summer spending spree. I do think the Neymar transfer caused a bit of a merry go round of transfers that has set a bit of a president that can't be kept going. soon there has to be a breaking point.

16.) 31 Oct 2018 12:49:59
Grino75, there are no signs of it stopping just yet. When you look beyond the insane £100m marks, the actual cost in percentage of revenue, cost of players (even the insane ones) are on average less than before.
Pogba was in reality cheaper for United than Veron was, based on percentage of revenue.

The revenue is still on a rise, albeit especially in the Premiership. But as long as revenue keeps rising, and the money made in Europe are increasing. the transfer fees will follow.

But to reply to the top one. I believe Salah is a great player, in so many ways, and will be hard if not impossible to replace if he leaves.
Yet, people seem to forget that Klopp have altered his attack to maximize Salahs effect. Adding another top quality, yet cheaper player, I trust in Klopp to adjust again. and it will be like CoutinWho. We didn't really miss him after the fact.

Just my two cents for the eds to blow wide open :)

{Ed002's Note - "Percentage of revenue" is of no relevance and comparisons between the likes of Veron and Pogba are of no relevance.}

17.) 01 Nov 2018 16:40:43
Of course he'll go, it's the owners Modus operandi. Why do you all torture yourselves, even though the coutinho money helped fund the last few windows, they'll still be mortified to have spent a hell of a lot more than they ever envisaged even tough it's a fraction of city and united's spend. Oh and they'll take nowhere near £200 million for him, if they can get anywhere near the couthinho money, BANG he's gone.



22 Jul 2018 12:31:28
What is likely to happen with Meyer? Who has shown serious interest / opened talks with his agent (Asking here as he has been linked to Liverpool).


1.) 22 Jul 2018 13:22:47
From what I've heard his wage demands are too high for most clubs to be interested.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 14:42:16
was his wage demands £4m a year if so does not seems too high in this day and age. about £77k a week or is that just paper talk like that's why people don't want him.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 15:07:24
Think it was double that last i read grino. 8million his demanding.

4.) 22 Jul 2018 15:53:40
Never seen him play so no idea if he's any good or not but if he's a £30m player then getting him on a free with high wages doesn't seem too bad. If he's just a £3m player then it's a bad deal.

{Ed002's Note - What do you men by "free"? Signing on fee, 5% of valuation to The FA, agent fees, payment to compensate Schalke, tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable, tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable, Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?), legal fees, VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable, moving/relocation costs for the player, VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable. And then there are his outrageous wage demands.}

5.) 22 Jul 2018 16:33:13
If these are the costs involved for a so called free transfer, then the amount Can must have cost to Juventus is beyond my imagination.

Let alone be for signing a player from certain club.

{Ed002's Note - They don't have to pay all of these costs but ceratinly signing on fee, agent fee, legal fees relocation costs - but his wages are far lower than what is being asked by MM.}

6.) 22 Jul 2018 19:39:28
I still expect him to sign for a premier league club, but I'd think it'll be more along the lines of West Ham or Palace. I also think it happen late as he'll start to learn that he'll have to drop his wage demands if he wants anyone to sign him.

7.) 22 Jul 2018 20:59:22
Do we see us going for him if he reduces his wage demands (in case nobody is ready to pay high wages)?

{Ed002's Note - To replace?}

8.) 22 Jul 2018 21:09:58
Ed002 by 'free' I meant that we wouldn't be giving a club £30m or so just to buy him. I'm well aware of all the other stuff that accompanies a so called free transfer.

{Ed002's Note - So who will be moved on to make room for him?}

9.) 22 Jul 2018 21:50:20
No idea Ed002, my only musing on the matter was whether he'd be a decent acquisition on a 'free' if you go back to my original comment.

10.) 23 Jul 2018 07:33:59
No transfer fee say 20 million.

Maybe sell one day even for 12 mil will negate most of those costs.

So eventually be a free is what it should be called.

11.) 23 Jul 2018 07:37:45
Why would a player be a good addition, if he's not replacing anyone in the squad? That's just stockpiling for the sake of it surely and will lead to more club debt and unhappy player/ s.

12.) 23 Jul 2018 09:07:40
Love how hot under the collar ed2 gets when people talk about frees and transfer fees in general- Iv learned a lot from you though mate. I didn’t realise about all the hidden costs of every transfer. Even been passing on the knowledge to one of my mates who saw an article and based purely on official transfer spend and all income it reckoned we had another 200mil after Allison to spend on transfers. I informed him it was utter bullsh*t but some people actually believe that shit! Dread to think what we’ve spent on agent fees alone this summer- never thought I’d type these words but I agree with Gary Neville (sorry- give me a second) agent fees should be limited and the FA should impose a tax on them as a way of getting money back into game from these thieves!

{Ed002's Note - Last season Liverpool paid £27M in agent fees.}

13.) 23 Jul 2018 12:24:41
Sport agent to established players must genuinely be the best job in the world.

14.) 23 Jul 2018 14:21:02
Meyer is not good enough for us anymore. He would not get in ahead of Fab, Naby and Hendo anyway and for a squad player, we already have Gini, Milner and Lallana.

15.) 23 Jul 2018 23:53:52
He wants 8mil a year apparently that’s just silly money if he was that good Madrid, Barca, PSG etc would have snapped him up.

16.) 24 Jul 2018 08:44:08
Kloppsboss, how do you work that one out? You say he might cost 20 mil, then sell him at a later date for 12 and it negate most of the costs so he really becomes free?

I mean you’re already 8mil down that way and the fact even after 1 year, you'll be another 8mil down with his wage demands xD

The word "free" is made up to give people false hope. Nothing is ever free in life! (Unless you steal it and never get caught xD)



16 Mar 2015 17:03:23
Sinclair to Wigan on loan for the rest of the season

Good luck to him, hope it helps continue his development


1.) 16 Mar 2015 17:29:01
Ojo is there aswell hope they both run riot



05 Aug 2014 12:57:25
Eds, is there any update at your end on Moreno? Various news outlets are stating that we are close. With the daily fail even stating that a £16m fee has been agreed. Only really credible source of info out there is from you guys

Have searched for it, but nothing recent on there other than discussions about whether he would up sticks after a few years to Madrid



{Ed002's Note - As I explained at the weekend, the news from Copenhagen was that Liverpool had changed their offer again to cash plus Suso.}

1.) Is that suso on loan or permanent ed?

{Ed002's Note - I understand a loan with an option to buy.}

2.) Great. Suso looks good in the preseason games.

Good draw for us. Although part of me wanted a top tier club in there to make it more interesting. Real Madrid perhaps for some revenge. Napoli aren’t a pushover though and done us last season away.

But wow Barcelona got screwed with that group.


1.) 30 Aug 2019 02:47:17
I’ll take the draw - Napoli will be more than tough enough to give us a real test and keep us on our toes, and the other trips aren’t as far to travel as some others.

Most looks pretty even to be fair, no real group of death.

2.) 30 Aug 2019 07:48:37
I’m just glad we didn’t draw Lincoln. As I hear they are pretty tough to beat at theirs 😂.

{Ed025's Note - if i remember right bristol city kicked your arses on your own turf a few years ago JK, it happens to the best of us mate..

3.) 30 Aug 2019 09:44:27
No real group of death unless you're Slavia Prague. They're very dead.

4.) 30 Aug 2019 08:14:26
😂 I didn’t expect a reply from you this early Ed025 I thought you did the late shifts. Only bantering mate. It was good to see Lincoln give you a run for your money and it’s games like that, that make the cups.

{Ed025's Note - its their cup final JK so they were really up for it which is what you expect, games like that are never easy mate..

5.) 30 Aug 2019 13:37:55
Lincoln are a decent side with a good young manager, they made the QF of the FA cup a couple of seasons ago. 2 promotions in 3 years, they will be on Everton heals before we know it 😂.

6.) 30 Aug 2019 13:19:58
Stop living in the past please ed25 😋.

{Ed025's Note - i dont live in the past beef, but sometimes people have to be reminded that people who live in glass houses should,nt throw stones mate.. :)

7.) 30 Aug 2019 21:57:04
Err, didn't we lose to the mighty Northampton in the League Cup on penalties at Anfield under Hodgson?



16 May 2019 00:16:40
with the transfer window officially open at 00.01 are there any signings to be announced for us? Maybe one that has sneaked under the radar again?

Are there any deals for anyone in the EPL going to be announced for tomorrow?


1.) 16 May 2019 07:29:31
Just to clarify to other confused folk (just like me! ), the Transfer Window is open from today for domestic transfers, but overseas transfers can't happen until the FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) opens on 11th June.

These dates are only for the processing of paperwork to make the transfers official - deals could be agreed (and leaked) before these dates.

The window closes at 17.00 BST on Thursday 8th August 2019.

This is from the official Premier League website.




05 Feb 2016 06:32:03
Hi eds I posted a question on here last night about the pan European league and how it will all work but can't seem to find it?

Some other comments allude to it having been discussed? Did it not make it through or did it just attract abuse?


{Ed002's Note - I have now answered it - it has been discussed at length before but there has been a change so I redid it.}

1.) 05 Feb 2016 08:47:31
Thanks mate much appreciated.



04 Feb 2016 22:37:43
Ed2, a question if I may and if you have time. I've read a lot on here about the pan European league but how will it actually all work? What happens to the structure of the national leagues that don't join. Which British teams are up for it etc

Isn't it going to ruin football in some respects? The cost of following your team is going to become astronomical and simply unaffordable for most

Personally I don't like the idea.


{Ed002's Note - There are always going to be changes Tom and time is getting close for major changes.

The matter of a breakaway pan-European league remains very much an on-going issue with regular discussions on the matter between a dozen or more clubs.

Without going in to too much detail: (a) A number of clubs take the opportunity to meet and discuss various issues including changes in rules, club versus country issues, television and other media rights, the power of UEFA, exploitation issues for new technology streams, etc.. The meetings were annually but now they happen two and sometimes three times a year. There was a meeting in December – where there was a discussion about the state of FIFA, the situation with UEFA and a so far unpublished claim from a retired referee that the result of a Champions League game was influenced by a third party. These discussions also always turn to the possibility and structure of a breakaway pan European league. Several are ex-G14 clubs, several are not, and some clubs decline involvement in such discussions. (b) The plan is that at some point a number of clubs would break away from their national leagues and UEFA. They accept that they would be banned from all existing club competition and the players would initially be banned from all FIFA competitions as well, but know that FIFA would be looking to negotiate in any case. It would be the end of UEFA in all probability and UEFA are very aware of this. It would also result in a restructuring of many of the national leagues. (c) The clubs would renegotiate their television and media rights, rights of distribution via other streams etc.. (d) It remains the greatest fear of UEFA and all major national authorities that one day this will happen – which has resulted in a counter-proposal being drafted by UEFA. (e) Timing wise, two very prominent clubs want it to happen as soon as possible (2018) and they have the support of a third club - but most are looking at 2022 being a good option. A few clubs are looking at 2025 to 2027 and I suspect that could end up as the reality.

There is going to be a counter-proposal backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin which is soon to be tabled. The proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail, on major Football Association has given their support.

If the proposal for a breakaway goes ahead, there is every likelihood that the big money from television, sponsorship etc. would go with a breakaway league. It would completely rupture the operations of UEFA and I would expect it would require national associations like the FA to restructure their leagues. Nobody wants this but it is the eventual consequence I would expect. Initially it could be that there is a single 16 team league with 2 or 3 EPL teams making the initial plunge. If I had to speculate, I would think (1) you might eventually see something like five or six EPL teams leave for two-tier pan European league - but it won't be based on the UEFA rankings; (2) the Premier League would be disbanded as an organisation; (3) the FA would restructure in to two 20 team divisions with lower leagues regionalised as they were many years ago; (4) FIFA would ban all players from the breakaway teams from International football - perhaps rescinding that position to stop FIFA breaking up as well - they don't want further issues but the troubles are not going to go away. I could also see many teams lose their professional status. I would think we are probably 10 years away from any significant move at this time.

I hold a reasonably strong view in terms of the need to restructure football in Europe in any case. For me an eventual a breakaway pan-European league would force the restructuring of many of the national leagues, possibly resulting in a British league with perhaps only a couple of professional tiers and then regionalised amateur leagues below that. Financially I do not see that so many pro sides can be sustained within the sport which, like it or not, will see more and more money going in to the highest levels of the game. Governments will ensure that grassroots sport get funding but everything in the middle (Southern, Northern, Conference, Division 2, Scottish Divisions 1-3, League of Wales will not get the funding needed to continue on any sort of professional basis.}

1.) 05 Feb 2016 09:03:51
Thanks for for the detailed response

Are you able to say which epl sides are pushing for it and / or would be interested in joining the said pan European league? Do you know what lfcs stance on all this is?

Is it fair to say that a lot of this has been brought about from jealousy of the money being plowed into the epl? If I were to hazard a guess I'd bet it was Bayern Munich and psg that are pushing for it sooner as they are bored with the ease of their current leagues and frustrated by the lack of TV revenue etc

As mentioned I really don't like the idea. It pushed football further into being a sport for the rich and prawn sandwich brigade.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are not included in any of the discussions.}

2.) 05 Feb 2016 09:24:11
ouch, that was my fear. That will likely to push us into obscurity then. Better enjoy football under the current format whilst it lasts

May have to find a new sport to follow.

3.) 05 Feb 2016 10:09:40

even though we are not involved in talks at present, i'd imagine when the time comes we would be involved.

Even though we are struggling at present we are still one of the biggest teams around.

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool would not be involved if anything happened in the short to medium term but by the like time for any movement things will likely be different at the club.}

4.) 05 Feb 2016 10:10:28
Ed002 - Are there any specific reasons why Liverpool are not part of these discussions. I know Liverpool is not doing well but in terms of revenue it is still amongst the top 10 clubs.
Also, when this league eventually happens, would liverpool be a part of it by any chance?

{Ed002's Note - I am not getting in to any of the reasons why certain clubs are not included - and unless there were changes Liverpool would not be included in the short to medium term.}

5.) 05 Feb 2016 10:18:13
Hey Ed2, Thanks for your post, it's fascinating to read and seems far more inevitable than I realised.

Just to clarify a couple of things:

1. You say Liverpool aren't involved in the discussions but that 5-6 EPL teams may be involved in a closed two-tier league. Do you think it likely that Liverpool would be one of those teams? I assume a team's inclusion would be largely influenced by financial potential and that Liverpool are in a good position in that regard.

2. Is it inevitable that the league will be a closed shop? I would have thought the FA would fight hard for some kind promotion/ relegation system because the value of the English league would plummet without it (or at least plummet less with it) .

3. If the UEFA proposal gains traction do you see the main teams remaining in national football in any capacity (Cups etc) or would it be a complete break away?

4, Finally, do you think a break away league may introduce competitive controls (revenue controls, a salary cap or a draft system for instance) or do you think it will be totally free market? I feel without some financial controls after a short while we'd see the league revert to the haves and have-nots invalidating the reason for the breakaway league in the first place.

{Ed002's Note - 1. You missed the word "eventually". Initially the expectation remains that the three Premier League sides that have been part of the discussions will be involved. 2. It is nothing to do with The FA - that is the point - it will be breaking away from the extant structure. 3. The UEFA proposal makes no change to the national or international organizations - all it changes is the number of teams in the "Champions League" and the fact that there will not be any qualification. 4. It will be the totally free market that many of the clubs want. Initially with the likely 16 teams there will be no "have nots" - the money will be well beyond anything we see now. As I have said this would force the restructuring of many of the national leagues, possibly resulting in a British league with perhaps only a couple of professional tiers and then regionalised amateur leagues below that. Financially I do not see that so many pro sides can be sustained within the sport which, like it or not, will see more and more money going in to the highest levels of the game.}

6.) 05 Feb 2016 11:02:58
Thanks Ed2. Unless I misunderstand the situation (which is quite likely) I hope the UEFA proposal gets adopted. Although Liverpool may eventually join a full break away I think it would be the death knell of domestic football.

In a perfect world I'd like the pan-european leagues to be the top tier with the national leagues becoming the regional leagues that feed it but I expect that's naive.

{Ed002's Note - The clubs at the forefront of this are looking to rid themselves of the restrictions of UEFA so will likely reject their proposals when they make them. UEFA are trying to get buy in from each of the FAs but that will carry little influence with the clubs. UEFA will be able to force their changes but it doesn't impact any breakaway.}

7.) 05 Feb 2016 12:27:28
Ed would teams from the top tier British league be able to gain promotion to the breakaway league or would the breakaway league be like the NFL and NBA with no teams being relegated?

{Ed002's Note - This has been discussed and initially there is no intention of having promotion. Perhaps at a much later date when their is a second tier.}



23 Dec 2015 09:33:47
An chance of this today please Ed002 mate please:

21 Dec 2015 14:33:56
Hi Ed002. Any chance of a January transfer window summary much in the same vein as the one you recently put up on the Chelsea page. Was a great read

Or have the muppets here been running wild again and we'll need to wait a couple of days as punishment for their idiocy.
Agree1 Disagree0

No problem, thanks. Sorry to keep chasing you for it, just looking forward to reading it. Won't mention it again as i bet the last thing you need is me pecking your head for it.

See everybody! Now unless ed002 is one the tiny minority in the world to be a married lesbian, ed002 is a man! Not a woman!

What if it's a smoke screen?

what if it's not their wife making the demand, but wives of those close to them?

Maybe Ed002 is the husband for the day?

Yea the rumours I’ve heard (websites etc) is that Barcelona want to include him in the neymar deal. But still be interesting to know how that clause would work if he’s sold.

I thought it was just that the full Coutinho fee would become payable if they buy another of our players. Wonder how that would work if he leaves.

Might be the same guy as the one on twitter. Talking of which I just read it and I never go on Twitter. Its definitely worth a read. Its either true or an exceptionally well thought up lie!

I have to agree with ed002 we are very ignorant as a country to other languages. Kids in places like Spain etc start learning English in primary school whereas we learn it for what 4 or 5 years at high school and its very basic

Was on holiday recently in a resort that was predominately French, Spanish and German. My young daughter loves player with other kids and all conversations we had with their parents had to be in English as I couldnt understand a word. Felt very ignorant because of it.

I guess it could partly be because the premier league is so competitive. There really no stroll in the park games like in Germany or Spain (sides that would struggle to stay in the championship) to blood youth into the side. Domestic cup runs are another matter both but we did terribly in both.

Just my opinion but history has shown us that players we initially slate can come good. Hendo and Lucas are 2 that immediately spring to mind. I couldn’t stand them at first. I guess the main difference is attitude as those 2 always tried and remained professional. I’ll continue to back him but only if he sorts out his attitude issues . My guess is he’ll get 1 more season at best and if the issues remain he’ll be sold. Klopp doesn’t seem to stand for it, remember sakho.

On klopp, I’ve read things suggesting his next move is likely to be to manage the German national team. As his style is all about building a team and improving players by training them day in day out do you think it would work out for him in international management?

They will hedge against currency movements separately to the timing of a transfer. General business for big multi currency organisations.

Great owners but the way they are funding it makes business sense. If they end up selling one day their loans would get settled out of the proceeds first before a gain is calculated (and taxed) . Any other shareholders involved wouldn't get any of this repayment as it comes off the top (pretty sure i heard some random american sports guy has shares) . Also if they ever want to take funds out they would just repay the loans instead of declaring a dividend and having to pay tax. Good tax planning is what it is.

My guess from a pure insurance point of view is that the insurance company wouldn’t pay out until his body was found and that’s why Cardiff were asking for me time. A horrible situation and my thoughts are only with his family and friends at this difficult time.
