I'm baffled why people are twisting themselves into knots to ignore this basic premise of how a wage structure works in all business.

Football works slightly different from most other industries!!!

And who are you selling to pay the increased wages that Alisson, VVD and TAA now want?

I really don't think it works like that as much as people think it does. But guess what, we're going to have to pay them more on their next contract if we want to keep them, maybe VVD excluded given his age. Letting Mane and Salah go doesn't stop that process from happening.

Cissť:

"Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media.Ē

I like the way the club is going about itís business. We pay well, very well in fact, but it is also within a structure, within our means. It is sustainable and is a key factor in our success.

Bobby Firmino strikes me as a player who will go in to his mid 30s without too much of a decline. He has had some form and fitness issues, but the underlying attributes are all still there, and his game has never been about out and out pace. I actually think Firmino can have a big influence on Carvalho in the next couple of years, as hopefully the young lad rises up.

Mane and Origi left, and Diaz and Nunez arrived. New heroes will emerge. Itís always the case. Iím happy with those changes.

Mo still up in the air, but likely to leave on a Bosman to maximize his earning potential. At that point another new hero will emerge.

We canít extend ourselves to the point of breaking something important, to keep aging players. We offer a lot. Sign or donít sign. We will be quite fine. If and when Mo goes too, life will go on and Liverpool will still be fighting for everything at the very top.

If Mo left now he'd still earn silly numbers. I'm ok with how things are but I am a little worried about our midfield.

I just don't know what people have been watching these last few years - he might not rely on pace but he's increasingly injury prone, less explosive than he once was and less productive overall. I'm not sure any of those three counts can be labelled at Mane or Salah, bar perhaps the middle one for Mane to an extent.

Bobby Firmino strikes me as a player who will go in to his mid 30s without too much of a decline. He has had some form and fitness issues, but the underlying attributes are all still there, and his game has never been about out and out pace. I actually think Firmino can have a big influence on Carvalho in the next couple of years, as hopefully the young lad rises up.

Is Firmino particularly injury prone? Last season he was in and out a few times but before that, I don't remember him being particularly so. Transfermarkt doesn't show him to be injury prone prior to last season either. Now, he may continue getting injuries this season and in the future but I don't think one season is a particularly strong pattern.

So getting rid of him (not you G Richards) because he's injury prone doesn't tally.

The midfield would be the top priority for me now, too.

We have the numbers, but there is a question mark over durability, as a few get older. The biggest vulnerability is if both Henderson and Fabinho get injured at the same time, as we could get overrun in the engine room.

I can understand the thinking that if the one we want isnít available now, then we keep our powder dry in the meantime.

Itís far from a desperate situation in midfield and we will probably still be fine for the season ahead, and not adding another midfielder right now might also see Jones and Elliot get more minutes, which in turn could help them stake a good claim to be mainstays into the future.

Still, I can see both sides of it. But overall Iím chilled, and I know the club will act decisively when the right player is available.

I would definitely keep Bobby, especially if he has the desire to stay, and doesnít demand a kingís ransom. He will also help the newbies settle, as we have a wholesome culture of established South American players that the newer ones can integrate with.

In addition to that, I think Bobby has plenty to offer as a player, and I donít see much of a decline for him for the next few years. With the five sub rule too, it will help us balance the playing needs of older and younger players over the season.

Sounds like nonsense but just saw this in the Mirror. Agent talk to get Leeds to up their bid, Iíd guess.

Quote
Porto expect Liverpool to firm up their interest in winger Otavio this week after rejecting £26million bid from Leeds.

The Portuguese side believe an official offer of around £34m will be made by Jurgen Kloppís club in what is expected to be a pivotal week for the playerís future. Brazil-born Portugal international Otavio has a release clause of around £51m in his contract.

But it is understood the Primeira Liga side are willing to do business at around the £38m mark and the playerís agent, Israel Oliveira, is in England trying to get a deal over the line for the 27-year-old.

Good luck to Minamino. Good player who scored goals for us when called upon. Squad man not main man for us, and at his age he has every right to try to play more football for someone else. Sensible move all round.

My concern is next summer. If Salah does leave then we have to replace him and potentially Keita, Milner and OX and the other lads are all a year older. If it stays as is id argue we need to cm's next summer and a Salah replacement.

Get a young CM in now and it eases some pressure on the older lads in midfield.

it seems obvious now that Diaz was Manes replacement. Club were likely aware that Mane was leaving so moved for him then.  Based on that im not sure we will be signing another forward.

I mean I was one of the only people saying Nunez would be a good signing while most of the forum were dubbing him the new Andy Carroll so your insinuation that I'm the first to be negative or whatever is wrong and uncalled for.

My wider point is it makes little sense to retain Firmino yet let Salah and Mane go - if we don't want players to decline on our books then it should be a widespread policy.

In my personal opinion we should have been looking to use some of these pLyers' wages to bump Mane and Salah up because they're going to be very difficult to replace. Thankfully it looks like we have signed two very good players to do so but I'd still rather have Mane and Salah around than Firmino and another for example. Obviously we don't have unlimited wages but we seem to dish out inflated wages to less talented players at times yet draw the line at our best ones...

It comes down to value, the continuity of keeping Firmino for another season or two at the same or a lower salary is clearly a reasonable decision, doubling Mane's salary obviously doesn't deliver the same value, even without any of the inevitable knock-on effect on other salaries in the squad.

The idea that Keita, Firmino etc leaving would release enough salary to bump both Mane and Salah enough for them to sign new deals is simply laughable, Mane signed with Bayern for £360k a week and it seems unlikely that Mo is asking for less than that from us either.

I think if Mo is not going to sign then we'll sign an attacker in January hopefully and a left-footer at that. Given how much of the goalscoring load had been on him and Mane we need to be proactive and get someone in before he leaves otherwise whoever comes in the summer will be massively burdened by his legacy. Diaz signing earlier helped in this matter too because he showed enough in the 6 months to not be treated as someone filling mane's shoes.
I still have hope that Mo may just sign the deal because he does care about records and he'll have a chance to break as many as he wants if he stays put. It might be a compromise of sorts where we pay him a handsome loyalty bonus and signing fee without breaking the actual basic wage structure.

Definitely not this summer.

Numbers wise we were fine in attack going into last season but even then it was Origi and Minamino needed to cover for AFCON mostly. As we signed Diaz it left us carrying one too many, numbers wise, once we had the AFCON players back. Therefore Origi, Minamino and Mane out and Diaz, Carvalho and Nunez in balances out.

The only glaring need to complete the squad is a CM and that's mainly because of Thiago's injury record and Henderson/Milner's age leading to a lack of legs in the middle of the park.

Firmino hardly missed a game until last season. He was virtually ever present in the league before that. He played 74 of the 76 league games in the prior two seasons.

Good player but lost his explosive pace after that last knee injury. Also very rare for a top Italian player to leave Serie A in their prime.
