    @The Woolster


    I dunno, from reading the article, my feeling was Klopp was talking about discussions that had taken place, which I think every club was doing, with regards to forfeiting money to go to the NHS, charity funds or non-playing staff, and discussions that were taking place with the PFA, so I don't assume it is something that has actually happened.


    However, profits don't pay wages, cash does. I could well see us asking the players if they are ok with us to pay them quarterly rather than monthly, as that would be in line with when we get paid by the Premier League and Uefa, especially as we will be without the regular match day income.

    Just watched an excellent documentary on Sky Arts - Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records.


    Get it watched.

    This is on tonight in 45 minutes. 


    I recorded it, and only just got around to watching this evening. Was great, a perfect accompaniment to the rum and ginger beers i was drinking.


    Wish the boy was called Rudy even more now!

    I tested positive for the virus but am out of hospital now. Just feel light-headed as fuck due to the blood thinners.


    There wasn't many young people in hospital with the virus, I was only in there due to the blood clots in my lungs. The 'younger' people tended to be fat, conversely I saw very old people with the virus that appeared to be dealing with it okay, their main issues were the complete inability to care for themselves such as incontinence, feeding, etc but that's probably their general level of independence.


    Fortunately I did not get close to the ICU, so can't comment on the demographic in there.


    There appeared to be plenty PPE available for staff and enough beds but this is just the tip of the iceberg.


    Glad to hear your on the mend and it wasn't too serious Elite!


    I had a pulmonary embolism almost 10 years ago when I was 31. Passed out at a wedding, I thought I was ok, but I had turned blue, so they got me an ambulance... spent a week in hospital! Funnily enough, they thought the cause of the dvt was a really bad flu which I'd had for the 3 weeks before. Good thing I went to the wedding, as staying at home to recover from the flu was probably the sensible thing to do, but then I'd have been home by myself, and if it happened then, I may not have been able to phone 999.

    Based on how we have signed players in the past I cannot see us spending money on a 'possibly overhyped?' and overpriced English youngster. The value has to come from buying somebody with lesser of a profile in the UK,surely Shirley?


    I did say for instance, could be another wide forward.


    However, any 19 year old who has double digit goals and assists 2 seasons running in a top 5 league deserves all of the hype.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say that actually, we should keep him for at least 1 more season.



    Would depend on who we sign for me, for instance is we signed Sancho, then it would be best for him to leave, but I am a big fan and think he could score a load of goals in this team.


    Also depends on how much anyone offer for him as well I guess. If it is anything close to like £30m, I think its pretty hard to say no.


    I actually think the another loan but to a decent team in the Bundesliga would be a good move for both parties. A high pressing team that is in Europe would be ideal. Perhaps if we are speaking to Leipzig about Werner, then Wilson could come into the conversation.

    Its perfectly normal for parent companies to charge their satellites management charges and also interest on their capital invested shown in the balance sheet. I'm not talking about 3rd party loans. Don't see why FSG would be different.  I confess I haven't gone through the accounts and to my knowledge there is no detailed balance sheet available to us. My point is that without full details it's reasonable to assume FSG are doing what other parents companies do . Not bullshit views.


    The latest accounts are now available to view here



    In this set of accounts, there are £51m of administration costs which they do not break down what makes up those costs, so it is possible that they could put management charges in there, and we would not know about it. However, this goes against  the other evidence of them trying to keep cash within the club and to reinvest all earnings back to into the club.


    Again, they have not taken out a dividend. Not only that, but the loan for the Main Stand which @dockers_strike strike mentioned, previously they were charging us interest on that as they had borrowed the money themselves and were charging us the same rate (2.44%), that has been transferred to a non-interest baring loan as per page 29 of the accounts. So they are making decisions which keeps cash in the club, so then charging the club for services just seems unlikely to me.

    When do UEFA pay the CL money??

    surely they won’t have paid us as winners before the end of may??


    some of the TV and prize money from no.6 would be in this years account if so


    In terms of the cash, I believe they pay prize money quarterly.


    In terms of revenues, I think they would have booked all the guaranteed revenues up to 31st May, and if that's the case, the majority will be in the figures released already.

    Imagine what the next round of Accounts are gonna show, seeing as we spent the square root of nothing on new players, rather than the 220million quoted last FY.


    Well, some of that £220m will be an increase in wages for the 11 players who had renegotiated contracts. That will be the same in the next accounts.


    As for the transfer fees, they get smoothed out in the accounts via amortisation, which will also be the same in the next set of accounts.


    So it may sound strange, but it won't make as big a difference as it sounds.

    Had recently (just before the outbreak) booked a family holiday in MArch/April to Thailand, with a few days in Singapore at the end. The Woolstess is stressing...

    Mr rb14 went out to Thailand and Vietnam last Thursday for three fab weeks. I join him out there this Tuesday. Yayyyyy. Match tomorrow see? Not missing that. Might not get to see another. 


    Better still, if I do catch this thing and die, I've got myself covered in the Deathpool thread. @The Woolster will back me up - assuming he's not a goner too. 


    I wouldn't assume anything...
