      Wonder how much the Nike deal brings in?

      Right now nothing , and a lot of the Nike money is based on sharing commercial sales etc as opposed to a fixed fee

      Let's hope that some funds are made available to strengthen a squad that will be decimated next season when the Africa cup gets under way.
      Don't anyone hold their breathe.

      Worldwide & home sales would probably see NIKE recoup most of that outlay..

      Any idea how many jerseys the club sell..? Would be interesting to know..

      It’s around 1.1 million shirts sold

      What does help with the Nike deal is they also get added to the thousands of Nike stores around the world

      Oh God not this chestnut again, because we already have forwards we can't sign any more, weird how that doesn't stop any other top teams having talented players on the bench ready to rotate in. Also makes me wonder why Jesus stays at Citeh when he knows he's behind Sterling and Aguero, what a Mug!!!

      I wanted us to sign a top quality forward last year mate and had plenty to say about it when we didn’t and you had even more to say I recall. In fact you pained a bit of a doomsday picture of what might happen if we hadn’t but the plain and simple truth of it is that we’re it not fir this bloody virus we would have wrapped up the title in March, would have smashed the 100 point record and would have completed the most dominant league campaign in English football history.

      I like Werner, cracking little player but had he been a red this past season how much would he have played? In all honesty not nearly as much as he’d have liked is the answer and it’ll be the same next season barring injuries. There’s no need to get hysterical about this one, you got quite hysterical last summer and were proved completely wrong, so was I.

      Uhh sorry Scott did you just admit you were wrong? That is NOT allowed on a forum mate, get a grip  :roll:

      On Werner - he is interested in us, and we can definitely afford his price tag so if we aren't hitting that release clause as Chelsea have then we aren't that keen on him, pretty simple.

      Haha yeah you don’t get much of that in here! Edwards and the Manager seem to know what they’re don’t they? League Titke, European Champions, 3 European finals and 4 finals in total over 5 seasons says so. I’m not gonna get in a twist about this.

      I'm fairly sure quite a few of our players are on more than £200k per week aren't they, if not we should be very worried because they'd be targets for poaching!!

      Not 1000% sure but I did some googling and seen Mo was on 200k and everyone else below.

      Gutted this transfer is reportedly dead, but at the end of the day I understand

      The bottom line is you can't spend money you don't know you'll have or not. ATM all reports suggest big revenue loss for the club which is not the position you want to be in when you open your wallet and spend 60+M on a player.

      Some people will be frustrated with this and its understandable, but we have a pretty good squad as is with players like Jones and others like Minamino, Ox, Keita who as cliche as it may sound, will be like new signings if they can stay fit and perform.

      It is also not to say that we will have a 0 moves summer. What will be interesting (important) is to know if the other teams around us are in the same situation we are in. Hopefully, everybody is in the same boat and United and City don't go on out about their business as usual.

      I just saw a video (I'll link it) explaining how Chelsea's situation is a bit particular considering they have spent the last two seasons spending almost nothing as well as selling Hazard and Morata and offloading a couple of big wage earners like (Willian), which basically makes this move and the Ziyech one possible.

      https://www.thisisanfield.com/2020/06/liverpool-facing-between-70m-and-200m-loss-due-to-coronavirus/

      EDIT: one point I'd also like to add is that the deeper we get into the transfer window the more you'll see clubs needing to sell in order to not literally collapse. Even with our reduced spending capabilities, this could be a good occasion to get in a few transfers, who knows.

      I know it’s easy to pin it all on FSG being tight but this isn’t a man who would be saying things like this just to appease the owners, it’s because he knows the situation. If we aren’t signing Werner or anyone else then Klopp and Edwards are just as much the reason behind that as FSG in my opinion. Also makes a very good point, asking for players to make sacrifices but then spending lots of money to bring in new players, that could cause a lot of unrest.


      But for what it’s worth, reckon we would have been signing Werner and Havertz if the world hadn’t gone mental.

      Maybe the league should have put a halt to the transfer window for the next year or two....to allow the market to stabilize. Only allow free agent transfers, otherwise no clubs allowed to spend big money on transfers since it appears that other than maybe Chelsea and City, no other club will be able to spend big money on transfers.

      Just saying... if the club cannot sell season ticket renewals or allow general sale of tickets then there is a way around this till we get back to normal...

      I think a subscription type season tickets could be a way forward... granted there will be a loss on the catering side but certainly the club could earn more via subscription fees...

      Okay they do a subscription service, then have to explain to BT and Sky why the club are broadcasting games when they’ve already taken money from them two companies for the rights to show the games. We start broadcasting the games ourselves through a subscription service and the money the club makes from that would be significantly less than what they get from Sky and BT. Not to mention the fact it would be a breach of contract that you can bet your life Sky and BT would fight us to get their money back.

      Then people who are already signed up to LFCTV would argue why should they have to pay another subscription to watch the games.

      I don’t think you are quite getting all of the implications the state of the world is actually going to have on the club financially because we’ve had you suggesting loans and now pissing off two companies that are a massive part of our income.

      Signing Werner or anyone else is very unlikely this year.

      I said last summer we would suffer if two of our forwards were injured at the same time, luckily that didn't happen, let's hope it doesn't happen next season either.

      Yeah I thought I read about that, virtual season tickets, I'd buy that to be able to view all games, sure plenty others would as well. It would have to go via Premier League TV companies but no reason why it can't be done.

      Depends on the number of virtual season tickets sold, think Pay Per View, lots and lots of Liverpool fans in the UK and worldwide.
