Linked with Walcott again. Not sure if he is the answer?


1.) 06 Oct 2017 10:05:52
Older version of redmond in my opinion.

2.) 06 Oct 2017 13:53:53
Apart from actually has a finish.

3.) 07 Oct 2017 08:38:39
It's the same old situation wages too high and Mr Goa ain't spending this season.



26 Aug 2017 08:06:03
5 days before the window closes. Eds any further info about any ins or outs or do you think our business is done now.


{Ed002's Note - No, it won't be done just yet.}

1.) 26 Aug 2017 08:49:05
Thank you. It's been a wierd window for us this year.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 09:15:10
Mp putting out there that transfer business is done unless a good deal comes up.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 12:20:59
Not signing another striker before the window shuts, would be a big mistake laving just 3 strikers at the club, especially with Austin's injury record.

4.) 26 Aug 2017 13:16:11
Is there anyone new we're interested in Ed? I've heard rumours of a few teams being interested in Long?

{Ed002's Note - Not beyond what I said about Remy.}

5.) 26 Aug 2017 18:07:05
Do you think Remy would be bought out right or do you think he'd been loaned in? If he's still at Chelsea the loan to buy option could work. Similar to Bertrand.

{Ed002's Note - You need to forget the commercial aspects - there are a number of clubs interested in Loic Remy including Southampton.}



01 Aug 2017 09:46:26
Got a feeling Cedric is on his way out. Eds do you know of any firm interest in him from other clubs?


{Ed025's Note - barcelona have been looking at him mate..

1.) 01 Aug 2017 10:20:40
He has been quite vocal pre season. I'd be surprised but let's face it if Barcelona come calling. still jeremy pied has looked impressive in the glimpses and looks comfortable in and around the team so ready made replacement.

2.) 01 Aug 2017 13:18:45
I feel Cedric will stay unless we accept and offer which is like saying you can go. He always seems positive and pro saints with publicity etc I am sure if it was made known he could leave there would be no shortage of takers incl Barca. Pied has looked good b4 injury and pre season and will prob get a run while Cedric catches up.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 19:21:06
Hasn't he said recently on his return after the summer. I'm home. That's the only vocal I've heard from him.

4.) 02 Aug 2017 13:20:56
Cedric, Tadic, Bertrand and VVD were all grumpy under Puel and wanting away but all, except Virgil have changed their minds under MoPe and want to stay.



26 Jul 2017 20:25:30
Frankly bored with the VVD rumours now.
We have a good team and with some minor tweaks I really do believe we have a great first 11.
If he goes he will need replacing but I hope he doesn't and gives us another season.
I'm more concerned about losing Cedric, Bertrand and Romeu.


1.) 27 Jul 2017 00:24:36
He is going of that there is no doubt. Just a question of SFC making it seem they have done everything to keep him. They promised that no players would be sold to the new manager which I personally don't think they really thought they could guarantee. I just think there is a £30m centre back out there as good as VVD trouble is could we sign him with our wage structure, not sure of that. If they are that good they would want more money.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 08:44:57
Totally peed off at the moment, No excitement about the new season
all we hear about is VVD. Not a thing about strengthening the team.
Anyone with any football brain can see from last season that we are 3 Quality players short, but all we hear is 3-4 players going. The club are trying to look tough and say VVD will not go, I think most of us do not really believe this. TELL him to give us 1 more season and he can then follow his Wallet and go.
The same happened with Schneiderlin. There NEVER seems to be any GOOD News come out of St Marys, even the Takeover is a Joke. Come on Mr Reed, we have paid good money for our tickets, give us some value for our money. Looks like we cannot buy until we sell, other clubs are strengthening Pull your finger out!

3.) 27 Jul 2017 09:50:08
Don't think the 3 players above will be leaving. Bertrand was wanted by City and they've just splashed out however much on full backs. Plus City singing Walker for 50m means we should be asking at least 30m for Bertrand. That's the position that football is in right now. As for Romeu, I can't see him at a bigger club than Southampton where he would be getting regular first team football.
The Cedric rumours have died down, but he's not currently in the squad, so we'll see what happens when he returns. I think Cedric is probably one of the best full-backs in the league and will just keep getting better.
I'd like us to keep these players. But every rumour that comes in is disappointing. I feel that we buy players that we know we will sell on for a profit. This is why I think we haven't chased players that cost more than 20m. You look at Boufal, Hojbjerg, I don't think they were bought to improve the squad but bought to develop and sell at a profit. It's disappointing but it is the business model. You look at the money Keoman is spending at Everton and it makes sense why he left and has slated us for having no ambition.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 12:01:48
Take away the value of lukaku being sold and Everton have spent about 25 million. plus the extra wages. so it's not as big as you think. Everton are also owned by another tycoon in the abramovic mould that can use the club as his plaything and spend as he likes. We are not. We have an owner who is trying to make sure we progress and build in a lasting and sustainable way instead going all out for 3 or 4 years and then going bust. again.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 13:13:02
Yes and understand and I agree with you Milky. However, there is building a sustainable team. However, the rate we buy youngsters and sell them shows a lack of ambition. Obviously when Liverpool and Manchester United come knocking and a player wants to leave there is nothing we can do.

I mean the media, of course, doesn't help, which is where I read most information. All it takes is one of our players to have a couple of good games and suddenly every club wants in. However, it seems like this is only the case for us. And the only money we seem to invest in the squad comes from outgoing transfers. What about sponsorship deals and Sky money? Where does all of this money, obviously I'm not saying we should spend every penny the club makes on bad signings.

That being said, it obviously comes from a lack of bad management why players choose to leave. As their managers leave at the first opportunity. Last season we stepped backwards and I don't want to entirely blame Puel for that. It almost feels like there is no long term goal, apart from to remain sustainable.

6.) 28 Jul 2017 12:23:31
Hi Guys

Its the same old story no one will be sold this summer or at least till the last week of the transfer month, then the board can say its to late to buy anyone better than we got now. KL can then fill her purse up again, that's when she will sell the club to the Lander sports group and push of with another £200 plus million, Where has all the sponsership money gone, where has all the sky TV money gone where has the money gone for our 8th place finish in the Prem div. OH I forgot to say KL probably got a massive purse.




17 Jun 2017 16:18:08
Heard a nasty rumour today that there is a possibility that it could be Sean Dyche. I don't believe it but it's a rumour board so posting it. Came from someone who has connections to the academy.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 06:18:03
Why would Sean Dyche be a nasty rumour? He has done brilliant with Burnley and a small budget.

At the risk of being shot down again I'll say the same thing I've been saying for the last 8 months. Gabbiadini isn't good enough. Don't keep blaming the service. He doesn't take his chances.


1.) 30 Oct 2017 09:42:56
He literally had one half-chance yesterday. Trouble is he isn't the type of player that can play up top on his own. He's not fast enough to run with the ball and take on players and he's not big enough to hold up the ball.

2.) 30 Oct 2017 13:24:22
Haven't got a clue why we played him yesterday looking at the defensive way we set up. We were sort of playing with 10 men all game considering the total lack of attacking midfield on show. Great shot by JWP but apart from that he is a liability and couldn't win a tackle in a girls team. We should have won that game but once again had no impact at all in the final third. When will people realise that FF is not good enough for the PL.

3.) 31 Oct 2017 14:15:27
Yep, it’s time to bite the bullet and drop FF.



30 Sep 2017 14:05:58
Struggling to understand today's team selection.


1.) 30 Sep 2017 16:59:47
Yep me too. Its going to be a very long season. Should have got a point today. why didn't the management realise we have no strikers?

2.) 30 Sep 2017 17:51:44
Struggling even more to understand why he took Lemina off and not Davis or Romeu . Lemina by far the most attacking of the three .
Also what does Redmond bring to the team?
Austin/ Gabbi up front . Long wide (far more productive than Redmond or Tadic)

Cedric VVD Yoshida Bertrand
Long Lemina Romeo Tadic/ Davis
Gabbi Austin.



09 Sep 2017 17:30:33
I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on this forum that doesn't rate Gabbiadini.
We need to start Austin from the start.
Poor performance today.
Forster needs dropping too as he should have got down quicker for the second goal. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for the first as he was unsighted.


1.) 10 Sep 2017 22:43:36
It was quite funny I didn't know much about gabbi so after reading a fair bit I was very disappointed, such a poor goal record, but after a whirlwind start and mates ribbing me i'd admit I was wrong however is he slipping back that way or is it our atrocious service and lack of support, he has very intelligent movement but when you have blind wingers like Redmond who can't spot a pass if it smacked him in the face what hope have we got, so perhaps it's time for 2 up top, I like Austin but I feel Long would be the better foil for him.

2.) 11 Sep 2017 07:33:05
Take the first games out of the equation when he got here and his goal to game record for us is appalling. I'm hearing everyone go on about not getting the service but this time last year Austin had the same players providing for him and he was scoring regularly until he got injured. Happy to be proved wrong but I think the Gabbiadini lovers will change tune in the next month.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 11:38:23
One goal since March 4th if i'm right.



29 Aug 2017 16:41:47
Rumours VVD is in Liverpool. Just landed by private plane?


1.) 30 Aug 2017 07:57:32
Guess I shouldn't believe everything on the internet lol.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 10:06:51
Ox - also ran.
Lemar- Gamble, no EPL experience.
Salah- gamble, already failed in EPL.

In your rush to jump into defensive mode, you've done a classic scouser and not read or thought about my post. Standard.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 11:46:08
posted on wrong thread mate.



28 Aug 2017 08:35:50
Origi from Liverpool? Not going to get a game there at the moment.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 16:17:40
Yeah can see him coming to us.

Go on. get Lambert. He can still be signed as a free agent. Motivational, great in the dressing room and could still do a job even if its very much part time. Even if its just to train the rest of the guys how to take a penalty!

Seen Janssen from spurs linked on a loan move to swansea. Wouldn't mind highjacking that one.

Costa on a three month loan (lol) but more seriously Origi permanently.

Not entirely sure Walcott is the solution to our lack of goals up front. Plus as someone plus the Eds stated these cash plus players deals are really difficult to put together. There are better options out there i'm sure.

I tend to agree. I was hoping for changes a little earlier as some players were looking tired. But I think he for the line up and tactics right at the start. A back four when we were pressing forward with JWP dropping back to make a back 5 when we were defending.
Good to see Austin scoring again. Stephens looked very comfortable on the ball plus Forster is now playing with confidence.

Agree Vintage. Great performance last night. I, like most on here have given FF a slating this season but last night he was world class. Would have preferred Austin and Boufal to have started up front but was also was glad to see us finally starting with 3 at the back.

I’m not saying clip his wings completely. He just needs to learn that sometimes when the simple pass is on it’s the better option.
Yes it’s great to see him beat a few people but he seems to try and do it all the time and at the moment his success rate is a lot lower than his failure rate.

Nice result and more importantly a good performance.
Pull Boufal aside and tell him to play it simple a little more often.
I’ve got a feeling though we are going to set up a lot more defensively mid week.
