    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Didnt they make a play for Xavi not long ago, as well? I think they just throw a dart at a board or pin the tail on the donkey and take a punt. I dont follow Spanish football but the guy who's about to be sacked, Id never heard of him before. It's a bit like Akinfenwa suddenly being handed the Liverpool manager's job. There again, big Aki would probably make a better fist of it!

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Well all I can say to you is the people I have spoken to have no concerns about getting paid hence they have committed themselves and their workforce to it . These are very savvy people with many , many years of experience in the construction industry and have been around long enough to spot a snide project. I have personally never been involved in a project which seems to be as advanced as this one is which subsequently failed to complete. I don’t have an empirical knowledge of Everton’s finances I’m afraid. However I do know a certain Mr. Usmanov publically stated he would be delighted to help out his friend and business partner Mr. Moshiri at Everton, which amounts to having a pretty powerful underwriter for the project at the very least. Eggsyblueskin Player Valuation: £35m Today at 2:22 AM #65,694 All I can reiterate to you is that I have personally spoken with people who have already committed their firms and workforce to this project and are already preparing to commence work the moment they are given the go ahead. This would not be happening if the finance was not assured. Whether you believe me is up to you. The Usmanov comment I referenced was not a rumour but a direct quote from an interview which appeared in the Financial Times (If I recall correctly) fairly recently. As for financial institutions being cautious ,all I can say is the construction industry seems to be finding the money at present judging by the amount of new projects we are currently being invited to tender for on top of the work we already have. Not only will this happen , it already is happening. Do they think Usmanov got very rich by giving his money for free to friends to fund their pet projects? Whether or not Usmanov does or doesnt fund this, whoever does will be doing it to make money and not just to help a mate out.

    The shitness of modern football

    Quarter finals. There's clearly shitloads going on behind the scenes. Club president spending shitloads of cash and the transfers not working out. Thank heavens we dont have his sort running Liverpool! They go through managers quicker than a dose of the shits traverses the anus. Messi is a great footballer but we dont know how hard he pulls on any strings regarding team recruitment and managers. Ive no sympathy for Barcelona or Real for that matter. They're about as big on self entitlement as any club can get. They were giving it billy big bollocks when they signed Coutinho but the reality is, we'd pulled their trousers down and they knew it. Im just sorry we couldnt hand them their arse again in the competition.

    Sounds like barcelona got their pants pulled down. Even Coutinho scoring twice, that will please Messi no end. Has the manager been sacked yet? Just hope Bayern haven't turned in their best display of the competition tonight.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    To be fair, that comment I made about availability was in regards to Liverpool's souvie shops. They've had ten's of thousands of pre orders to fulfill. Nike also have retail outlets to supply and was one part of the contract that swung the deal over NB.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    Correct. The club's main supplier has just changed over and that was delayed while NB were rightfully given the opportunity to be recognised as the club's kit supplier. NB didnt provide any new stock of shirts to the club despite the club asking them to do so. Some disingenuous people could take NB to task for taking their ball home over losing the contract but there you go. Could Nike have pre stocked items? Well they werent even able to officially unveil the new shirts until 1 August, that 14 days ago. It doesnt even take into account this virus situation that put most of the world into lock down and inhibited the movement of all but essential goods. Even supermarkets had shortages of bogrolls and virtually everything else. There's always logistical issues with a new supply chain etc.

    Again, wouldnt disagree. Forecasting anything is very difficult. Under estimate and you have a shortage, over estimate and you have over supply. I tend to use my John Henry shill money to put towards a new shirt but it's not going to make the cut for these inflated Nike prices. So, if they included me in their projections, they made a mistake!

    Arsenal to hold investigation into whether they overpaid for Pepe at £72m. Well I never, they need an investigation to determine that?

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    I wouldnt disagree. It is frustrating for those who want to buy but cannot due to the gear not being readily available. Id imagine predicting how many shirt sales and therefore how many units need to be made in advance, is quite tough especially when it's a new commercial venture. Nike might not have any accurate historical LFC shirt sales data to rely on and as you say, being Champions would trigger a huge increase in demand.
