Terrible umbrella purchase. Just fork out on one with better structure. Better investment long term than to keep chucking the £7 ones away when they inevitably don't hold. Or if you want the inverted look purchase an unbrella from Japan.

Looks like that bus driver needs a few more sessions with Jose. The **** is he doing.

Link? That would make him the highest earner at the club by a long shot I think.

Maybe if you include his signing bonus in with his weekly wage it might hit that but I would be really surprised if we gave him that much. Gerrard wasn't even on that much I don't think.

Rickie Lambert off the mark for WBA, the day he signs for the club.

Re: English Football 2015/16

"Free" Transfers are always on a higher wage, Jovanovic was on something stupid like £110k a week.

Milner is worthy of being our highest paid player though in my opinion.


I have been really confident of this upcoming season for Liverpool and think along with Arsenal we are one of the most significantly improved while Chelsea, Manchesters and Spurs have not.

However I am a bit concerned that it looks like we are going to go with Lovren being in our 1st choice pairing at CB especially if Moreno is going to be at LB.

Liverpool play away at Helsinki tomorrow so it'll be interesting what the side looks like, I agree it seems Lovren has leap frogged Sakho though. I can see Ibe and Lallana starting against Stoke.

Re: English Football 2015/16

BTVDITW about to get even better next season with the US contract in its last year. people speculating that it'll probably mean an extra $300m, but the rumour is that 3-4 networks could be in on it hard, so who knows maybe a bidding war will break out and it'll go even higher than that.

a few extra bucks to add to the pile anyway.

Hope they stay with NBC. Coverage has been top notch. Fox would be aids.

Google milner wages and loads of reports that he turned down 165 at city for 150 at pool, not saying it's 100% but majority roll with that

Re: English Football 2015/16

So terrified FOX is gonna outbid everyone for it which will be the worst thing you can imagine in this country. NBC is so so GOAT and I'd even say it's the best coverage of any sport we've ever had in this country. Just absolutely outstanding. Plus that pushes Bundesliga back to AIDS FS+ which isn't even in HD and no one is paying $15/mo for. Premier League games probably get pushed to that too

Foxsportsgo at least alleviates the need to buy fox soccer2go which is a steaming pile of **** app. But Ya NBC coverage is undisputed goat. Between NBC live stream and extra time it's football nirvana.

Fox getting the premier league contract again would be like a kick in the balls. Hopefully, they are happy with the Bundesliga and don't bother to bid.

If Fox gets the PL again I will legitimately cry. The only network who blatantly disregards what their viewers want. A bunch of clowns. They got Friedel and Holden in which is fine, but until they get rid of Stone and Wynalda they are WOAT.

NBCSN coverage is so good that if they lose the rights La Liga should basically throw themselves at them ... what I mean by that is they should be doing everything they can to get their brand on NBCSN just for long run growth, even if in the short term it requires taking less money.

NBC did the same thing for hockey - I'm pretty sure their first ever contract was basically getting the rights for free. But they built up the brand and gave it way more attention than ESPN ever would and in the long run it's worked out great for the NHL.

EPL product is so well developed that I think they're right with just going for the most money.
