Klopp is driving the boat

Seriously? You think Klopp has told whoever is negotiating to pay less? If so what's your source?

Did Klopp do the same with VVD only to pay full price, maybe more, 6 months later? If he did he's not a quick learner.

I do think that -- since I think it - my source is me. Certainly you can see the difference between the two situations.

 

Fekir will not start the season with Lyon - they know that and so does he (and there are not a bunch of teams beating the door down for this fella) - a little different from Van Dijk. TBH I dont care -- he is not the best player we will bring in this window.

We rightly should not give two fucks about pissing off the seller. It’s a buyers market.

Southampton fucking hated us but we still got VVD.

Clubs don’t decide buyers players do and that’s wages and trophies. Not pissing about in medicals.

I don't think anyone is arsed about pissing off Lyon.

Well we should try to remain on good terms with most clubs we do business with, we might want another of their players before long.

I dont know if he will be the answer for us either. My concern was over the difficulty of doing deals whilst the world cup is on and the short time after it has finished to get deals done with the window shutting early for UK teams.

You'd hope that the club are fully prepared for this - it isn't a surprise to them is it, everybody knows the situation.

I don't particularly care about losing this player, I'm not aware of ever seeing him play and am not keen on signing too many players from the French league, I'm not keen on signing any players from the French league quite frankly.

But I care how it impacts on the most important person currently at LFC, and I'd be amazed if he personally has said he wants the price knocked down after a medical. This is the same man who let us pay £75m for VVD who'd not long had a bad injury, and £40m for AOC he of multiple injuries and 1 year left on his contract.

Yes -- correct.

 

He is driving the boat.

Just read that Maddock tweet - if we are now trying to restructure terms after an agreement was already made then that's very bad on our part. Is a few million up or down really worth fucking up this? For fucks sake can you think how the player must feel?

We ballsed up VVD last year, through pissing Saints off.

 

But this is different.

 

Seems to me Lyon weren’t being forthcoming over his medical records and the medical threw up massive problems.

 

We could either pay top dollar and get a lad who’ll spend most of his time in the medical room. Aka Aqualini mark 2.

 

Or knock them down for being silly buggers

 

Or just move on to someone else.

 

It’s brinkmanship and Lyon have blinked first by saying it’s off.

Just move on. There must be alternative targets. Leave Lyon with their player who'll be very pissed off at them.

Then he's all over the show, unsteady in calm waters. Either that or there's a problem with the boat.

They removed it because of a typo, they have a new statement out. 

 

https://www.olweb.fr/fr/article/nabil-fekir-reste-a-la-ol-35343.html

Olympique Lyonnais informs that the tripartite negotiations with the Liverpool club and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais has decided to put an end to this negotiation tonight at 20h.
 
Although the club Liverpool has been the priority of a possible transfer of Nabil, and subject to other proposals consistent with the interest of Nabil and OL and from ambitious clubs, Olympique Lyonnais is delighted soon to be able to count on the presence of his captain who is a leading rookie for this season 2018/2019 during which the club will play the Champions League being in the 3rd hat of the draw.

I'm guessing, just like everyone else, but I suspect that we had an agreement pending a medical.

 

Then the medical showed an issue so we came back to revise terms. Probably wanted enough to buy an insurance policy on whatever the problem was, or at the very least a reduction in fee to compensate for the problem. The key point is that we didn't know about the problem when we agreed the fee initially.

 

As for everyone blaming LFC or Edwards, what are you basing that on? If it is indeed the sequence of events I've described above (and again, I must stress that we don't know for sure), where is the blame on our side?
