  1. I know he’s not short of a bob or two, but how much of a wage cut must he be taking if this actually happens?? I imagine he’s on a wedge to have moved to the MLS in the first place.
  2. Very promising start to the season! thought Clarke looked reassured, we might miss the pace of Tomori at times, but one first impressions Clarke looks like he won’t need to make those last ditch attempts 9/10. Even had a good Keoghesque run forward too! We need some more creativity in the side as you can’t rely on Lawrence to have a beast of a performance every match (though it’ll be lovely if Cocu can bring that out of him more often this season!!) It’ll be interesting who partners Bierlik once he’s match fit - wonder how much Cocu rates Shinnie? Nice to see Knight get a run out, but I was expecting Shinnie to see out the last ten mins. Finally - really good to see Holmes and Bierlik travel and sit with the fans!!
  3. Wonder if that means we might try to move on Huddlestone? Can’t see him getting much more than the odd cameo appearance with Bielik, Shinnie/Holmes and Dowell as the likely midfield combo if this goes through. Plus I imagine he’s one of the last few big wage earners. Weren't Udinese sniffing around back in January?
  4. As Percy said, it’s not going to be all up front - I’m sure we’ll have some clauses around appearances and promotion etc, so I don’t think it’ll stop us getting a couple more players in, albeit they will either be loans or cheaper deals.
  5. I won’t believe it until he’s seen in B&Q buying his new garden furniture.
  6. 22 later this year, you’ve got to think if he was going to break into the Everton team he would have done already, so hopefully we’re also negotiating an option to buy at the end of the loan (as long as they don’t expect silly money!)
  7. I think a load of people have had the same idea, lay odds plummeted!
  8. From BBC Gossip page: Liverpool are willing to let Wales winger Harry Wilson, 22, leave for a fee of £21m. The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Derby and Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig are reportedly interested. (Sunday Mirror)
  9. Wonder what odds you’d get on him not being next Chelsea manager... honestly can’t see it happening. If we’d smashed the league then yeah, maybe, but as it stands I just don’t see it happening now.
  10. I’d say we need every position in the spine filling, except up front. Though hopefully Shinnie will fill the CDM role. If we’re talking about building for the future, Keogh’s going to be 33 this summer and while I’d don’t think he needs replacing this summer, we need to be mindful that times ticking. Look to sign a good CB to play alongside him this summer. In hindsight, I think that’s one reason why even if he’s available, signing Tomori on loan again wouldn’t be a great idea.
  11. Can’t see Mount or Wilson. Maybe Tomori, as I can’t see a Prem team taking him on loan. i hope for Mount’s sake he goes on loan again, even if it’s not with us - I just can’t see him getting that much game time at Chelsea. Just look at Empadu this season.
  12. John Percy in today’s paper: The attempt by Steve Gibson, the Middlesbrough owner, to force an independent review of Championship clubs’ finances was rejected yesterday. Following a six-hour meeting in Nottingham, Gibson’s proposal was overturned by the “majority” of the Championship. Gibson is unhappy with the conduct of Derby County, Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, after insisting they could be breaching the profitability and sustainability rules. Gibson is frustrated that Derby owner Mel Morris was allowed to buy then lease back Pride Park to ensure the club recorded a profit in their 2017-18 accounts. At yesterday’s meeting, Gibson raised the prospect of the English Football League appointing accountants to review clubs’ finances. A senior executive present at the meeting, said: “The EFL finance team did such a superb presentation on their processes and policies that everyone realised it was totally unnecessary to question their work. Taking potshots at clubs’ accounts when on-field results go badly, if encouraged, will lead to a free-for-all which will bring the League into disrepute.”
  13. I know I’m opening myself up for being proved wrong in years to come, but I can’t see Wilson ever being a regular in Liverpool’s first XI and at the moment I couldn’t see him being a regular in a lower Prem team either. So on that basis, I think we have half a chance of getting him again on loan. Not sure many Prem teams would want to sign up to Liverpool’s loan deals about them having to play them for the majority of games without getting a financial penalty either. As others have said, I think getting Tomori again has the biggest potential. Only way we’ll have Mount next season is if we get promoted and while my heart’s holding out for that, my head is telling me something different!
  14. Quote from John Percy’s article in the Telegraph: But Derby are said to be operating under a “soft transfer embargo”, which is preventing them from registering Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie. The midfielder held talks with Derby last week but cannot sign a pre-contract at this stage, as the club’s accounts are being looked at by the EFL. It’s part of a larger article about how Steve Gibson doesn’t like us, Villa or The Wendies.
