    GW 5 Gamethread: They’re baaaaaack

    Another invisible game for Mudryk … tools wise he resembles Timo Werner - and results wise as well when it comes down to it. But Werner always had tons of chances whereas Mudryk looks completely befuddled and lost. The Athletic had a podcast on him a couple of weeks ago in which the...

    I’d bring on Endo for Jones right way and switch Mac to the left 8

    GW 5 Gamethread: They’re baaaaaack

    Well - that was awful - sadly they can’t do anything about the back line , but getting Mac out of there would seem to move #1 - I don’t know if that bogus yellow unsettled him but he’s had a horror game.

    Spurs 23/24: Big Ange Forever

    Turkey is, of course part of UEFA and they are bound by the umbrella rules. But each FA can have different transfer windows. Also - teams can sign free agents at any time. The Premier League is apparently agitating with EUFA to come up with some kind of agreement with the Saudi League as it’s...

    Liverpool 23-24: Fuckin' Around & Findin' Out

    They almost certainly have to sell him next summer, otherwise he’ll leave on a free in 2025. I can’t see him wanting to sign an extension , nor do I think LFC would offer one - or maybe a couple of years at reduced wages which , compared to the Saudi offer that would have quadrupled his salary...

    Liverpool 23-24: Fuckin' Around & Findin' Out

    I think it might be two things - hoping Salah would agitate to leave And - when money is no object - they had no sense of the realities of the transfer market. They probably figured the £150m offer would get it done - without really caring about LFC’s inability of replacing him Here’s a bag...

    Or they were hoping some back channel inquiries would lead to full negotiations - and they didn’t. Hope they had a nice time. See you in May

    Liverpool 23-24: Fuckin' Around & Findin' Out

    IF they have reps in London AND IF they are getting ready for another bid then you’d have to think - given the £150m bid was summarily dismissed - it would have to be close to £200m to get LFC to the table. So Its a perfectly plausible story . Of course they could be in London merely shopping...

    Liverpool 23-24: Fuckin' Around & Findin' Out

    Supposedly Al- Ettihad officials are in London and are prepping a £215m offer for Salah. There seems to be some confusion over how much of that is Add-Ons Regardless - do LFC hold the line or sell him now? Should LFC hold the line or sell him now? That’s a lot of money - they could even...
