Only for the fact that he's desperate to get out of there, it would be magnificent if he were to take them up on their outrageously generous offer. The only thing is, who would want him and afford him at the wages he demands?

 

We can but hope.

Surely that cant be true?

They want shut dont they?

The thing with them though, is their owners are more focused on money than even ours are. They do brilliantly well with sponsors considering how their team has been performing and you have to assume they have all kinds of shit linked to the number of social media followers players have. What else can make sense?

Sutely a lot will depend on the manager?

Paying him that insane amount means he is going to have to figure heavily..and if the manager doesnt fancy him?

Then.of course big signings are going to ask for parity.

Its crackers.

Does it work like that there? And he's out of contract this summer isn't he, so you assume they need to get the deal done soon. (Edit... I just don't think they behave like a football club. Money is king, football is just a mechanism to make.money)

 

I don't know how they do it when we're skint and turning over almost as much, but there seems little or no limit to what they seem to pay in wages and fees.

United have been 'cheating' since day one of the Premier League. Their major gripe now is that City have become better than them at it.

I thought uniteds revenues still dwarfed ours. I remember listening to a podcast that we were on a trajectory to overtake but the covid pandemic happened and our team has degraded a bit too, so the talk of it being a Liverpool era of sustained success fell in the bin.

I think just 10m difference on the last set of accounts - which was our title winning season but financially didn't include out title win, as we closed the books may 31st. I think they were the same, but obviously they would have less prize money and sponsor success bonuses.

Ronaldo's 37 years old, when will they stop worshipping him? 

 

The team wasn't incredible in the first place, but they just derailed it even more by getting him.

I don't think that's the point he's making.

 

I do agree with yours, though.

The reality is they’ve looked better and more balanced with Ronaldo out of the team, and the leaks he’s accusing other players of were coming from Ronaldo before he was benched. Nobody in that team has clean hands. Raggers has his work cut out.

What a quandary they find themselves in. Persist in playing an ageing Ronaldo to placate the fans or drop him to the bench and look more like a reasonable albeit rather functional team.

He made two changes in the 88th minute, even though they'd given up the equalizer in the 81st minute.

 

I can't decide if he was much-too-belatedly trying to go for the winner, or kill the clock to preserve the point.

Hahaha, yes I was thinking the same when he made the subs. It was almost like he just got them to draw straws who was going on.

    • The trilogy is greater than the sum of its parts. They all make the other films a little better with their backward and forward references.
    • Two unsung heroes from last season could be heading in different directions in the January transfer window according to reports.   Nat Phillips remains a player of considerable interest to teams in the second half of the Premier League table.   The central defender has has only made three appearances for the Reds in this campaign as Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez have returned to senior action after lengthy injuries.   Currently Phillips is out of action with a fractured cheekbone suffered during his last appearance for the club at the San Siro against AC Milan last month.     The Echo reports that the club have rejected two bids during this window, one is believed to be from Watford and more interest is expected to come in the next few days.   Fellow perennial strugglers in Burnley and Newcastle have also had interest in Phillips while a move by West Ham was also mooted due to their own injury issues at centre back.   So while Phillips maybe slowly heading to the exit door, there is set to be a familiar face return with the club cutting short the loan spell of Rhys Williams at Swansea.     The 20 year-old who signed a long-term deal in the summer was loaned out to the Welsh club in August as the club wanted him to continue his learning curve and get more first team experience under his belt.   But to this stage of the season, Williams has only made seven appearances (five in the league) with Swans manager Russell Martin outlining the difficult position.   “We’ve been really honest with Liverpool about the opportunities Rhys has had and the potential opportunities he has moving forward, so the ball is in their court.   “We can’t send him back…That’s the danger of doing loans. The parent club is always in control, to an extent. I think Rhys is in contact with them constantly about what’s happening."   Despite his lack of first team opportunities, Martin was full of praise of his professionalism and general attitude.   “I think the frustrating thing for Rhys is that he’s really happy here, he’s enjoying training, he feels he’s improved, but the one disappointing thing for him is that he’s had limited opportunities.”
