    looks good if this comes to fruition....we'll soon find out
    I remember reading that because fans now pay bt sport too, making the group stages alone was worth around 40m. Of course the further you go, the more the money but we cant bank for that.

    Of course the money may be more now as fans are paying more to sky and bt this year due to the price rises again. Its getting so expensive now to have both sky and bt. You are a lucky guy getting it for free.

    It's a strange one. The lad was a Liverpool supporter and supposedly keen to join. I'd have Rodgers in the spoofer category in general, anything for a bit of self promotion. But would he be willing to go on record if it was an outright lie?

    Maybe it was a dig at Edwards. Can't remember where I read it but there was a story that he has some sort of software that calculates the value of a player and what he should be earning based on his career stats/experience and this is used in negotiations. This was why the contract was 4k a week. Could be a load of cobblers too of course.

    Rodgers certainly was lets say, economical with the truth. Slippery kind of guy. Anyway it looks like Ali wasn't overly impressed with the two hours he spent in a hotel room with Brendan. The little flirt.

    Why not? Would you expect the club to respond? He's hardly slandering anyone. What are the actual quotes from BR? It's still only 'understood' that our offer was a bit of a joke.

    Entirely predictably the club has nothing to say - we don't want our business done in public.

    Its only the daily mail too, when all said and done, saying that, I would not be surprised if our owners refused to pay the going rate, I bet it would not be the first time.

    What is the 'going rate' for an unproven league one player?

    Would the 15m derby wanted for will hughes have been justified? Many cursed fsg and rodgers for not paying up for him!

    What would spurs fans say about not paying the 'going rate' for mane, suarez and lallana who they could have bought.

    The bottom line is we missed out on a player who has developed into a serious talent, for whatever reason.

    Had he come here there's no telling how he'd have developed under Rodgers, could've been another Markovic, who knows?

    It's a fine line to tread. If you want to sign the best young talent then how far do you push the boat out? On the one hand it's a sensible policy to not hand out bumper deals to kids, but when you miss out on a real talent over a few grand then it stings.

    It was an interview from goals on Sunday.

    The key detail is how reliable the source that cited this supposed offer is.

    Thought the group stages were worth something like 25m, or has it gone up?

    Good. They are not ripping the club off like the Glazers did for Utd.

    I don't think these lads spent a lifetime accruing their fortunes in order to ***** it up the wall on a pacey, goalscoring wideman to be fair.

    Or protest a plan that offers more cheaper tickets countered by increases on the rest to balance the books out then gripe when the owners hold off on investing more into the ground than will be paid for in a reasonable time frame.

    they can control the quality of the players on the pitch which leads to slips bad goalkeeping and bad defending

    Agreed, to a certain extent.

    if they were to sign up Barry fry as manager and accompany him with load of teenage backroom staff, would you not deem them responsible for failures on the pitch ?

    I think he meant their own personal money not the money the club has generated.

    And I accept, as owners, they have the prerogative to spend the money generated by the club as they wish.

    It's there, black and white, clear as crystal.

    'By purchasing this ticket you accept that The Owners shall not be held responsible for slip ups, poor performances, goalkeeping errors, slipshod defending and injuries etc etc etc'
