Anybody else watch marelos' video of his goals on instagram? At the end it says transfer target, but with sky sports on it too. Has this video been made by sky sports or is he really trying to get away?


1.) 13 Jul 2019 04:26:01
Well I hope he stays another year and shows yet again what he can do but keeps a lid on things We will never be able to replace his goals in a hurry! he's a player that is worth his weight in gold Morelos definitely worth 20m+ He has all the attributes to become a 60m+ within a couple of seasons and therefore fetching a mediocre EPL team a small fortune!

2.) 13 Jul 2019 04:45:01
Personally I’d like to see ya move him on. He’s an undeniable talent but he’s let us down far too many times with his conduct and if we can get 12-15m then I’d punt him. I’m sure Stevie G and his team were/ are prepared for this outcome and have earmarked a few replacemts. Roofe from Leeds would be an excellent shout if we could tempt him up here. Whatever happens, I hope it’s concluded sooner rather than later.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 04:57:20
We scored 14 goals in the games that morelos was suspended towards the end of the season, we also played the best football we had played all season without him. We will be fine without him. 60+mil kaz, I remember you said windass was a 15mil player. Behave yourself mate.

4.) 13 Jul 2019 05:02:49
Ohh there's Coldo again 😱.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 07:57:48
I think he's trying to engineer a move away.
I'm getting fed up with him, i have always liked him and i understand that his ambitions are to play in the prem league but, if he wants out so bad then we should get shot of him.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 07:38:35
I totally agree with Kazman, if McGinn is being quoted at £50M then why wouldn’t he be worth that amount performing in the same market?

I genuinely believe he could get 40 goals this year, with the level of the squad improving I would expect more assists from the wide areas. Added to the amount of goals he naturally creates for himself by hassling defenders - goals which Defoe doesn’t score.

And again as I said in an earlier post, Roofe isn’t a goal scorer. Joe Garner has a better goal scoring record in the same league playing for worse teams.

7.) 13 Jul 2019 07:43:31
Kasmania82 I don't want to watch him getting sent off.

8.) 13 Jul 2019 08:48:15
If alfredo goes no matter if it 8.10.or 12 mill they better put a clause on the deal if he scores a good few goals then yes he be punted for more maybe no 60mill but 40 at least.

9.) 13 Jul 2019 09:56:28
If Roofe is such a natural replacement for Morelos, why is he only worth £5m playing in England?

Bit like the Tav haters, you won’t accept how good he is until he has gone.

10.) 13 Jul 2019 10:50:43
No way was roofe going to leave Leeds for 5 million, that's just a figure getting chucked about by the press, remember the prices down south are tenfold on ours, maybe the 5 million would have worked as a down payment.

11.) 13 Jul 2019 11:09:30
Tryanikian Trust me If he were to scores as much as 10 in the EPL for Crystal Palace out of say 30 games in his debut season Granted he stamps out the moody blue and disciplinary issues Morelos is still relatively young just turning 23yo and a Colombian International at that

Morelos will fetch Palace circa 60m The English League is the most expensive market in the world and your average player is now going for around 40-50m

Don't listen to Coldo He thinks he knows best haha

Regarding Windass I was looking at Rangers getting around 4-5m for him and that he had the potential to be a 15m player

To be a 15m player down in England is not hard to conker It's the only league in the world with over-inflated values

A top Championship player is going for that amount these days and Windass as we just now is NOT a top Championship player, hence why I said potential at the time

Coldo Coldo Coldo Coldo Everything he says is 100% correct.

12.) 13 Jul 2019 11:32:57
He isn't ever going to be worth 60mil and if he wants to be worth 40mil he best start scoring goals in crunch matches rather than going missing or, worse, wasting chances from 2 yards and getting sent off.

13.) 13 Jul 2019 11:46:28
No wonder kaz, you're taking the heat of coop with your outrageous predictions. Why is everyone so fearful that we will collapse if morelos goes? We went on the best run all season without him, consistently destroying the top spl sides scoring 14 goals and letting in 1. We played our best football of the season without him. We are a much better team without him. If we get 12mil for him and use that to get kent then it would be the best bit of business of the summer. But here you are kaz going on about 20+mil then 60+mil. What absolute outrageous BS you talk mate.

14.) 13 Jul 2019 12:23:40
Karmania82 100% agree with you mate. Morelos easily worth over 20 million.

15.) 13 Jul 2019 12:28:38
Sell morelos he's a good player but he isn't the be all and end all. We played a lot better without him he was a liability amd he cost us sooooo many points last season. Plus he isn't endearing himself to the fans by constantly angling for a move and giving interviews aswell as liking posts of him being linked with crystal palace CRYSTAL PALACE sell him we do not need him and the gaffer knows we will get a better striker in given enough time.

16.) 13 Jul 2019 15:25:42
I might be one of the only folk here that would keep the boy. In the pictures I've seen from pre season he looks happy. I think if he emulates or surpasses his goal total from last year but gets control of his reactions I think his value would rise dramatically next season. The person that commented that we don't need him I totally disagree. When he is on his game we are a totally different team. He is unplayable on his day. I would take him over Defoe any day of the week. He just has everything. Just needs to get grip of that temper.

17.) 13 Jul 2019 16:01:56
I don’t think some of us understand just how good Morelos is and could become. Defoe will not score the goals we need for the season. However I think Ojo could be used as a striker and be very effective. The boy has power and a lovely touch, great finesse strike and ability to beat people he could be massive this season. He could fill that spot if we need time to get a quality striker in January.

Unless it’s 20m Morelos won’t go.

18.) 13 Jul 2019 16:12:30
Totally agree with you bellshilllad83 We are in no hurry to sell him and he will only depart if the price is right and its done in good time

The reason we haven't heard much yet is because the teams that do have their eye on Morelos will bid later on, as to try not create a bidding war

The transfer window is still open for at least a month So the bids will start rallying in the next week or so

Gerrard stated that too late of a bid will leave him a short time to replace him.

If the money is too good to turn down then matter how late it is in the window it will happen Simples

I would like him to stay as I do feel he has a point to prove having said that, he does want a move to the EPL and has come out saying that is his destination

It is inevitable he will leave We just need to make sure we do not come short of a striker and also get a moving on clause as I feel he will thrive in the EPL

All you guys that want him away will soon realise what a talent Morelos was at Rangers.

19.) 13 Jul 2019 17:22:47
Defoe will score the goals, just like he did when morelos was suspended for 5 games. Ridiculous to suggest he won't. I'm not saying that I want morelos to go, I'm saying we are better as a team with defoe up top, you just have to look at our form when morelos was out for 5 games to see that. We would have a stronger squad if we had both defoe and morelos, I like morelos but given the chance to get kent by selling morelos, I'd take that. Again you just have to look at the way we blew teams away when morelos was out and kent was in, particularly the celtic game. 12mil and add ons with a sell on % and morelos will be gone, nowhere near 20mil or more and throwing about figures of 60+mil because he has one cap for colombia, which he was howling or because he scores 10 goals at palace is just pure nonsense and outrageous BS.

20.) 13 Jul 2019 17:53:51
we did look good for 5 games coldo but I really think morelos is a much more reliable goalscorer than defoe.

21.) 13 Jul 2019 19:38:31
Defoe is class and I agree with you I dunno why anybody would suggest he would not score Defoe would score anywhere given the service As for Morelos let's just agree to disagree That's your opinion and I have mine

Morelos has already broken records here and there I know a good striker when I see one he's worth way more than 12m Your aff your nut Coldo!

He wasnt howling for Colombia either he assisted a goal albeit he missed an opportunity to score doesn't make him howling haha

You really do come on here to piss people off

Are you Celtic in disguise hahaha.

22.) 13 Jul 2019 22:39:26
Look what happened when we brought him back in? We got beat after winning all those games at a canter without him. he's a good player but like a said we play better in the system without him uptop. Defoes a
Different type of player who runs the channels and with arfied playin off him we strolled games he suits our formation and style better amd a think the gaffer knows this.

23.) 14 Jul 2019 12:46:08
Classic comeback, play the tim card. Says everything about you. If I piss you off because I tore your outrageous BS to bits then maybe you shouldn't come on here. I'm all for opinions but when you make ridiculous claims then I will call you out on it. His assist was a skelly fluke and yes he was howling that's why he hasn't played again. Breaking records in the spl does not make you a 20mil player.

I rate morelos but a bit of perspective in regards to his value has clearly eluded you. As for mr grumpys 5 games we played good, we played outstanding dominating football for 7 games that hasn't been seen since pre admin, all without morelos. This panic about who will score our goals if he goes is pathetic, the same people that said the same about windass when he was going.

24.) 14 Jul 2019 17:09:43
Skelly fluke Okay it's a fluke that Morelos set up his Colombian teammate for a goal 🤔🤪.

25.) 14 Jul 2019 18:54:32
Sorry his missed chance at goal would have been a skelly fluke had it went in. Anyone who saw the game today will know that we looked much better with defoe up top, his link up play, movement, runs etc is far superior to morelos. Morelos is not a 20mil st from the spl and he certainly will not go anywhere including on holiday for 60mil. You were one of the people on here last year kaz crying about who would score 18 goals from midfield if windass left, I told you then not to panic and I'm telling you now not to panic. Defoe is head and shoulders better than morelos.



29 Jan 2019 17:47:18
Record reporting that Pena is off. Apparently he has been in breach if contract and will leave without a pay off. Great news if true.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 19:56:17
Carlos Pena is set to be freed,
His contract terminated via mutual consent, losing Rangers around £3M.

2.) 29 Jan 2019 20:08:54
Is that £3m the wages to date and transfer fee? Like eastcoast the only reports I've found have said he is away with no pay.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 01:19:23
We lose the fee we paid for him which some say is £3m as we are sacking him so cannot sell him and no one would pay money for him anyway.

4.) 30 Jan 2019 09:07:13
Some Mexican drinks distillery will over him a job as a taster.

5.) 30 Jan 2019 09:40:09
If true that is probably best outcome for us and frees up his wages for next 18 months.

6.) 30 Jan 2019 12:55:13
Agree bankie, reports indicate wages next 18 month would be a million and a half.
Use it to get in someone who will add quality.

7.) 30 Jan 2019 13:40:08
Pena will be leaving us with a payoff as soon as he signed into a rehab his drinking became an illness and that makes it virtually impossible to sack for gross misconduct.

8.) 30 Jan 2019 14:01:58
Thebear how do u know it's to do with drink.

9.) 30 Jan 2019 20:08:54
If we’re paying off his contract at 20k a week then that’s roughly about £1.5 mill.

10.) 30 Jan 2019 21:51:05
if we sacked him standby for another lawsuit.

11.) 30 Jan 2019 22:34:29
I would doubt if we are releasing him and paying him off. If he is free to sign for someone else, we lose a fee and he gets wages from his new club. There maybe some pay off but won’t be his contract for the next 18 months.



08 Jan 2019 18:17:16

See that apparently Forrest are looking at Worrals contract to see if they are able to recall him in January. Fingers crossed.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 19:03:13
Big man's a player in the making still learning his trade.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 20:38:19
Problem is if Worral was to return to Nottingham Forest in January who does SG sign to replace him?

3.) 03 Dec 2018 08:40:02

taken from Liverpool players 2018-19.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know where you got that rubbish from but it is wrong.}

5.) 03 Dec 2018 14:30:56
Ed1. What is your source, what are you so confident Solanke is on £50,000 plus a week. I find it very hard to believe someone with next to no first team experience albeit with a good youth team pedigree is on that sort of money. Accept he would have received a significant one off signing on fee when he signed for Liverpool.

{Ed001's Note - I never said 50k plus. My source is from within the club and you clearly have no idea how much youth team players are being paid in the Prem these days. There are players with no first team experience earning 40k a week at Premier league teams.}

6.) 03 Dec 2018 14:45:54
Ed1 perhaps under very exceptional circumstances at Man City and Chelsea but not at Liverpool (for a lad that was not at outstanding youth success at Chelsea) . Value your comments but believe your wide of the mark on this one.

{Ed001's Note - you really have no idea, Liverpool are amongst the highest payers of youth players, Arsenal were actually the highest payers, not Chelsea or City. Though that is skewed because Wenger liked to have near parity for players within the first team squad, no matter the age or experience. By the way, his wage was higher to persuade him to join, Klopp actually made an especial effort to convince him, including tapping up the lad, which is still causing a few problems for Liverpool now. Liverpool have paid over the odds to a number of youngsters tempted from other teams, it is why they join.}

7.) 03 Dec 2018 15:49:45
I wish Ed001 you had as much no how on the Gers as you do about Liverpool? 🤯✌️🇬🇧.

{Ed001's Note - so do I mate.}

8.) 03 Dec 2018 16:13:55
Ed001, thanks for your comments, as usual very informative. When Solanke failed to agree terms with Chelsea he was said to be on £7000 and we know he would receive a substantial base increase and signing on fee when joining Liverpool. My understanding is he received a very significant six figure signing on fee and agreed a basic weekly wage significantly lower than you are suggesting. Anyway our interest here is whether he may come to us on loan in January. You have stated he is too expensive and is not good enough for the Gers. IMO he will join us on loan in January for second half of the season. Let’s see.

{Ed001's Note - I hope he does join you as he is never going to be good enough for Liverpool and I would be glad to get him off the wage bill.

There is an issue here, you seem to think signing on payments are separate from wages. The signing on fee is paid throughout the course of the contract as part of the salary. For instance, James Milner is actually being paid around £150k a week, because of the signing bonus. Solanke is being paid over £40k, which is in large part made up of signing bonus paid over the course of his contract. That is still seen as part of the salary for the club who has the player.}

9.) 03 Dec 2018 17:11:37
Ed you are right, the signing on fee isn’t lump sum. It’s an addition to the base wage.
The only part a wage which will fluctuate is goal bonus, unused sub fee, clean sheet fee etc.

I know a boy who a few years back made a name in Scottish football, got a move and made a number or appearances for Celtic, some of those games were in the Champions League and at the time he just won a Scotland cap. He went to sign for Middlesbrough and the club asked what he was looking for financially.
When he told them what he wanted the Middlesbrough board laughed and offered him multiple times what he asked for. When he challenged it the board said “you asked for what our youth players earn yet you are a Celtic regular with Champions League expand Scotland caps”

The youth guys down south are on thousands upon thousands a week!

{Ed001's Note - it has gotten ridiculous, which is why there are talks about setting a wage cap on youth team players.}

10.) 03 Dec 2018 17:59:12
I didn’t know there were plans to do that but the FA need to do something! The same guy I speak about above told me that when Musonda joined Celtic last year he was on £45k a week at Chelsea! This despite never playing a game for them! It’s absolutely incredible.

{Ed001's Note - there are a couple of 17 year old kids that are being paid £40k a week that I know of. It is scary.}

11.) 04 Dec 2018 14:27:31
Now you know why we couldn't hold on to young Billy Gilmour.

12.) 04 Dec 2018 16:24:07
Yes there manager says due to injury they want him back. He is ok but has made it clear he does not want to stay.
Goldston and McCauley safe again today.

13.) 04 Dec 2018 16:38:00
Gilmour on 10k at Chelsea, this includes signing fee, which he only got on turning 17.

They do have national cricket teams, but like Scotland, they just ain't that good, although we did beat England last year in Edinburgh. But like pdot says, just ignore him.
