Good to know. Did they taper the sides?


not anything like the vapor kit. But trimmer than some other brands. This fits me a little more snugly in an XL than the 08-09 home Adidas L did. And a little less snugly than the 17-18 L  New Balance.

30m seems high for a guy his age, but what do I know. 

I'd guess it'd be lower but potentially with kickers attached.

Seems like Werner money, no?  

I don't know much about Sarr, but give me Werner > Sarr and FSG thought that was too much moolah.

The deal for Werner also required a lump sum in order to activate his release clause. I doubt we pay that much for Sarr but he was Watford's record signing last season at £30M, so there gonna want something in that neighborhood. Then again, they don't have PL money anymore.

Unpopular opinion: Yuck.

Don't know that it's unpopular.  It's bottom ~3 in the past 10 years.  Whatever though, sign _______ and it's fine.

I don’t think it’s bottom 3. It’s not a bad color in person.
 

Warrior was terrible with away/3rd Jerseys. 12-13 3rd jersey was some tribal tattoo piece of shit,13-14 road and 3rd jerseys were god awful and I’m sure we’ve had some worse alternate jerseys in the last decade (yellow warrior ones come to mind).

The only ones in that category IMO are the 13/14  Away and 3rd.

I didn't really like the 18/19 3rd or the first 3rdspacer.png spacer.png

 

but the rest were either OK, or pretty good IMO.  This one is bad.

New Balance was a huge improvement on Warrior. 

this one is 💯 worse than our 20-21 away kit.

I disagree.

Man, looking back through our recent kit history is really something. We consistently have some of the worst kits of the big clubs.

Thiago move heating up. We've officially made contact but apparently don't want to meet the €30M fee that Bayern is demanding. He's only got a year left on his contract, yeah? That's a lotta coin for a 29-year old who can't seem to stay healthy but he's also world class, so there's that.

Guessing this one happens as soon as Bayern are done w/ CL.

I’m all in on Thiago. Guy is a maestro. And I want us to resign Gini. Our multi-billionaire owners can find a way. Sell Wilson or Grujic.

I'd call that an upgrade. It's wild that they had about 2 weeks off. 

Going back to the kit discussion, the 2012-2013 home shirt is my favorite of the Warrior>New Balance era. Whole lot of crappy kits though in that time. 2017-2018 to present were all pretty great home kits. Away and 3rd kits are always crap to me though I have the orange 2017-2018 one from my trip to Anfield. My favorite is still the 2008 Adidas home kit with the Carlsberg sponsorship and the old crest.

I get the impression Gini just wants to go somewhere else at this point.

Hope they get it done. I agree with mib, I think Gini wants a new challenge. Thiago is a great replacement. We need another striker. Any updates on Sarr?

The Pep one was more enjoyable. Put all his eggs in the UEFA basket and still came up empty. Curious what this means for them going forward. His act has to be wearing thin with the players. It wouldn't shock me to see them go for one more time with him by spending big.

With the season starting in a few weeks, they'd by hard pressed to find another manager of Pep's quality. I'm sure they are going to be prepared for a quick trigger if things don't go well this fall.

City is not going to replace Pep this year but I think it might be his last season with them. The club owners want Champions League above all else and he's failed to deliver. Not many managers better than Pep but I would guess they'd settle for Simeone or Pocchetino after failing to get Zidane.

I wasn't implying they'd sack him before the season starts. I'm saying I bet they go big with spending on players one last time with him and if he can't deliver this coming season with UEFA, he's out.

Marko Grujic has been linked with a permanent £13M move to Werder Bremen. Hard to see him with a future at Liverpool and I guess that's a decent fee in this market.

Hertha Berlin has shown some interest in keeping him. Maybe Edwards can play the two off one another.

I know it's a depressed market but anything less than 20M for Grujic would suck

51 appearances for Hertha in two seasons. 24 years old.

We should be easily getting 20M for him.

How much did we pay for him, ~5M?

We paid just under £6M. Over the past few seasons, we recouped £3.3M in loan fees.

Love him, hate him and/or always frustrated by him, he'll always be a Red.

So nothing on the COVD rumors that were out yesterday.  The way we're continuing and have friendlies scheduled, I'm guessing no big deal or bad info.
