    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    Tend to agree with you. Did not strike me as a great keeper in the making.

    Is Chelsea’s bubble about to burst?

    Thats because that area has grown up on Premier League football and the two most dominant clubs were.......

    Your top five favourite World Cup goals

    Anyone mentioned Archie Gemmill's goal against Holland back in 78 was it.

    Your top five favourite World Cup goals

    Not sure about favourite goal but Gordon Banks save from Pele in Mexico was truely breath taking. Even the great Pele thought he had scored with what was a text book header. Powerful downwards in the corner and away from the keeper. How Banks got that up and over the bar I will never know. Two world class sportsmen at the top of their game.

    Yes because it was simple succinct and to the point.

    There was no dig just a statement of fact. It is ok david Con going on about dereliction of housing stock. The fact remains how long have people been going on about increasing capacity. the two are mutually exclusive. You cannot have one without the other in a built up area like Anfield where the club has to deal with hundreds of households and landlords. And I say it again Football family is a phrase used by Jurgen Klopp. Someone posts Mansour builds a few pitches in Moss Side. Liverpool do it in Kirkby and nothing said. Of course we are playing catch up regarding marketing etc. Once again where do people think money to operate the club as in buying players and their wages come from. Sure tv income ticket money and MERCHANDISING. Some of the stuff the club does I wish we did not but these things happen. Shit happens in the world today. You make the best fist out of it that you can. Or at least I try to. Good evening.

    Oh hear we go. Because I have stated a good rebuttal to your David Con article it is me who is being unreasonable. Yes of course there were years of indecision. Throughout the 80s even the football club was deprived. Attendances were down to average 32000. There was not a sky tv deal in place. It is funny this whole thing started because one posted did not like the football family slogan a slogan our current manager frequently repeats. Hence the club using it hint hint. Someone else mentions City building a few pitches for the community as a good thing when the reality is mansour could make every City fan in Moss Side a millionaire. Instead he tosses them a bone in the form of a few pitches. Liverpool do it in Kirkby and guess what. I am the argumentitive sod. Funny old world eh.

    Oh please spare me. Remind me again how long some people have been mouthing off about increasing capacity.

    Pretty much the same as every other historical Premier League football club I would say. City are only doing it because they can. Do people seriously believe Mansour is a dyed in the wool socialist or something. Once again it is LFC singled out. What's LFC's legacy. At least they are employing people in the city emplloying people in the club shops. They have made a run down area of the city or at least a part of it look pretty decent for once. Yes it needed a slum housing clearance but then again some folk would have prefered the houses would have stayed I guess. Meanwhile outside the city in kirkby the club is going to turn a shit heap into a state of the art academy employing more people and providing improved football pitches for locals. But thats not good enough is it. There is always room for improvement yet whenever LFC does it it is the wrong kind of improvement or improvements some people do not want because in their opinion it is sarcastically classy. Very very strange.

    That will be City with Mansours money would it because they did not build a single pitch nor regenerate a single square fot Moss Side before hand. Yet Liverpool FC get shit thrown at them and theres always some ulterior motive for the club doing something. Well what do you think Mansour is regenerating Moss Side for. Isnt that something our political parties should be doing rather than waiting for mega rich oil shiehks and football clubs to do something about it.

    I am guessing you say classy in a negative way but why do you say that when we have remembered the 96 and Bob Paisley. Honestly I do not get it.

    I am glad it is starting to get traction. Maybe just maybe a few people are starting to smell the coffee and realise it stinks of shit just like Bramley Moore Dock area does.

    So should Klopp shut it when he talks about football family. I really really do not get why people fall out of their tree over stuff like this. Why do people get offended. it is like they want to drag any little thing up to have a go. I have been going to Anfield when we were Second Division team usually missing promotion by a couple of points and places. We used to say the players would rather be comfortable in the Second Division rather than having to pull their tripe out every week in the First and in some ways the club being grateful for it. Things change. You wanted a piss at the game you either got your cock out on the terrace or took your chance pissing against a smelly wall before the game.

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Well I have not got a clue what happened with this transfer. Should we pan the club for pulling out if they did over a dodgey knee if he had one or should we have just chucked money at the lad to just get the deal done. I sense a catch 22 here.

    Spot on. Just another dig at the club.

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Well there is a lot of confusion with claims and counter claims. Lyon say this Lyon say that. Le Quipe say something else etc etc. What I do not see is comment from Liverpool FC so I think it is a bit odd the club is taking flak.

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Been out most of the day and come back to see this news. No doubt the owners will get the flak but it looks like Lyon or rather Aulas has acted the complete twat. See that Lyons statement has been taken down so maybe Fekir has kicked off about his clubs antics. Baffling when all said and done.
  19. Looks like Amazon have bought up one of the cheaper tv rights packages. But you will need to shell out another 79 sheets to watch the handful of games. Amazon is on the cusp of purchasing its first Premier League television rights package as the online giant launches a threat against Sky Sports and BT Sport. In the division of Premier League TV rights for the 2019 to 2022 period two packages were still to be purchased following the initial bidding phase in February. According to The Telegraph, Amazon has now purchased one of the remaining packages with BT Sport understood to have taken the other one at a heavily discounted price. The Premier League have announced the winners of five out of seven packages for TV rights WHO HAS BOUGHT WHAT SO FAR? BT SPORT – £885million 32 – matches at 12.30pm on Saturday SKY SPORTS – £3.579bn 32 – matches at 5.30pm on Saturday 8 – matches at 7.45pm on Saturday 32 – matches at 2pm on Sunday 32 – matches at 4pm on Sunday 24 – matches at either 8pm on Monday or 7.30pm/8pm on Friday STILL UP FOR GRABS 20 – matches from one Bank Holiday and one midweek fixture programme 20 – matches from two midweek fixture programmes. Buying one of these will entitle Amazon to broadcast either 20 matches from one Bank Holiday and one midweek fixture programme or 20 matches from two midweek sets of fixtures. The Premier League sold five of their seven packages for 2019 to 2022 for £4.464billion to Sky and BT in February. Sky won four packages – worth 128 matches – while BT won one – worth 32. That left 40 games still up for grabs but Amazon has now purchased 20 of those. It will be a bitter blow for armchair fans who will now have to fork out for an Amazon Prime subscription to watch their team play on top of their Sky and BT fees. A membership for Amazon Prime will set supporters back £7.99 a month. Access to Sky Sports is already an additional £20 a month supplement while BT Sport can be purchased for an extra £27.99 a month. This will mean having access to all three services will cost fans £55.98 a month. Amazon are becoming an increasing force in sport broadcasting and already have the rights for ATP and US Open tennis. American Football is also broadcast on the website with the NFL renewing its deal to broadcast its Thursday night matches for two more seasons in April. Amazon also produces a sporting documentary series titled 'All or Nothing'. The programme takes viewers behind the scenes of three major American sports teams. Series have been focused on the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. Said to be worth a staggering £521.98billion in February, Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos claimed in April it's Prime streaming service has more than 100 million subscribers worldwide.

    It might be the owners last minute wheeze that he wants to smooth out the cash flow.

    It is disappointing the deal probably will not be signed off until after the World Cup now but that was always this Aulas desire. I know we like to think Liverpool have messed up but I do not think they have. I still think he will be a great signing.

    I think this is Aulas dicking about to maintain his tough negotiator stance. Would not surprise me if he has said to Liverpool and the player go ahead agree your wedge and medical then when all that is done gone I want the fee in one all up front.
