Sut mae Eds? Was wondering after Neymars behaviour recently if there's any serious interest in Cavani now? If so are PSG open to moving him on?

Many thanks and much love.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs would not suddenly become interested in Cavani because of Neymar taking a penalty.}

Not so much just "taking a penalty" that I was getting at Ed I've been reading there's a lot of handbags behind the scenes and the squad has become very cliquey. Also Cavani actually took the penalty. but many thanks for your response.

Hi Ed.
Once again, I'm a curious Dane wondering about the future of a Danish player. Considering how well he's been playing for them, is there any interest in Thomas Delaney of Bremen? I know he's only recently moved there, but could a move be on its way in either January or the summer window? If so, which clubs may be interested? :)
As always, I appreciate any answer and totally understand it if you do not know :)

{Ed002's Note - He picked WB over Everton and interest from Brighton was rebuffed this summer.}

Hi Ed001,

Don't think there's a Crystal Palace page, so I thought I'll ask here. What are your thoughts on Crystal Palace sacking De Boer after four league matches? I know you don't really rate De Boer and he has failed pretty miserably at Inter, but 44 days seems pretty ridiculous. Especially since they're looking to Hodgson now, who's a dinosaur.

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - it was a terrible decision. A mistake to appoint him is not solved by sacking him quickly. Parrish should be the one sacked if the decision is wrong, as he is the one who consistently makes the wrong choices.

You are right, I don't think we do have a Palace page.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Sep 2017 13:35:52
Is everything that's going wrong at Crystal Palace down to Parrish? Tony Pulis and Sam Allardyce both got out of there sharpish and they're probably two of the 'safest' coaches in terms of keeping a team up with minimal resources. The appointments of Pardew and De Boer were baffling as well, really. Can't help but feel that they'll go down within the next few seasons as they're a complete shambles despite the heavy investment.

{Ed001's Note - not everything, but he has certainly been responsible for a number of poor decisions recently.}

Hi!
Just seen that Lewandowski has been heavily criticised - could anything happen in january - and if yes, which clubs might be interested?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs are already meeting with other sides and agents about January (and even next summer) transfers but I am pretty sure that none of those discussions have involved Lewandowski at this time. However, if Real Madrid were to allow Benzema to leave (although they might have difficulty in selling him) they would have to have a replacement agreed - and that could well be Lewandowski if they cannot obtain either of their preferred choices (which they couldn't this summer. Equally, Manchester United could have turned to Lewandowski when Ibrahimovic left - but they didn't. It is hard to see him as first choice for any leading side. There would be a number of second tier sides who would be keen but price would likely be prohibative.}

11 Sep 2017 22:44:22
Thanks for such an answer! I got to say that I'm a bit surprised that clubs are already meeting, considering how many transfers seem to get done only at the ends of the transfer windows each time. Hope you've had a couple of not-so-busy days after the closure of the transfer window, though. By what you're saying, it probably won't be too long until you'll once again be spammed with questions. :)

'It is hard to see him as first choice for any leading side', are you referring to Lewandowski or Ibra Ed?

Good evening once again Ms002 if you are free? I have read your FFP explanations on multiple occasions and struggle to comprehend how PSG plan to abide by the rules. Surely they cannot be generating the kind of money they are spending currently? They have been in trouble over this before? What sanctions can you see being imposed if any if they do break FFP rules?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why you "struggle to comprehend how PSG plan to abide by the rules". They purchased tow player this summer (one very expensive and one very cheap) and have already raised money by selling a number of players. Additionally they have a list of players who are available to be sold between now and the end of June - some of which are of good value. They have already negotiated commercial deals and endorsements to bring in additional revenue and will be looking at more. They are also discussing a significantly improved shirt deal. If anything their problem will be in the wages.

I cannot suggest punishments when I don't know what sort of breach you are suggesting.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Sep 2017 12:14:30
Sorry Ed for not being clear, I understand only 2 were purchased but Alves (no transfer fee) and mbappe (loan to buy) must be significant wage earners, added to neumars new club high wage will surely affect their ability to pass the next break even test (December 2018?)? I understand Neymar will generate significant increased sponsorship as will the Qatar airways deal but this will be assessed to make sure all sponsorship is in line with what is being paid elsewhere. I have done some reading and was unaware of clubs amortising transfer fees (and can see why we don't discuss money) so I can see how this is not such a big impact. Is there any plausible way that Neymars wages would not be paid in full through PSG accounts? Is this allowed? Finally if PSG were to fail their next break even test, having been sanctioned previously, do you see a scenario where they could be removed from the competition. Is this even possible during competition?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure of what December 2018 refers to. Amortization is not something that can be done on a player-by-player basis - it is all or nothing and is really a red herring. The "break even" is related to a rolling period and there is nothing at all that can really be said until it is known what monies will be generated through sales, commercial routes, the shirt deal (I think you misunderstood what I said about that). The issue as I have said is likely to be the wages, but if they can be covered without loans or monies from the owners (assuming all transfer fees are covered - and they have already shown €104M additional revenue this year) then the infraction is over running the growth that is allowed in transfer fees - and that is pretty much the most minor infraction of the rules with plenty of clubs having been warned in the past (including quite a number of English sides). However, if it is anything more, they have a track record and could be severely punished (although the suspended €40M fine is no longer an issue).}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2017 12:38:11
Thanks again for your time and extensive knowledge. One last question if I may, additional fees associated with transfers e. g. Agents fees, can these be amortised over the course of a players contract or is it exclusively the transfer fee?
If one was to broadly assume your were a lawyer typed character dealing in sports typed law would they be very wrong or just a little bit. Appreciate it if you need to ignore the last part.

{Ed002's Note - No the additional fees associated with any transfer are on the books immediately or when they fall due. So if one of those fees was a further payment to clubs based on appearances or some other criteria, it goes on the books at the time it becomes due.}

Hi Ed002, I was going to ask next week but figured you might welcome a brief respite (subject-wise) from all the transfer question madness. Can you share any information about the breakaway pan-European league? I recall you mentioned there was to be a meeting about it at the end of August. Thank you for your input (and hope you're coping well from the incessant questions you must be getting as the window closes) . Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - It remains very much an on-going issue with regular discussions on the matter between around 16 “elite” European clubs (including three from England) who meet to discuss a variety of issues a couple of times a year. Without going in to too much detail:
(a) A number of clubs take the opportunity to meet and discuss various issues including changes in rules, club versus country issues, television and other media rights, the power of UEFA, exploitation issues for new technology streams, etc.. The meetings were annually but now they happen two and sometimes three times a year. There was a meeting in December – where there was a discussion about the state of FIFA, the situation with UEFA and a so far unpublished claim from a retired referee that the result of a Champions League game was influenced by a third party. These discussions also always turn to the possibility and structure of a breakaway pan European league. Several are ex-G14 clubs, several are not, and some clubs decline involvement in such discussions.
(b) The plan is that at some point a number of clubs would break away from their national leagues and UEFA. They accept that they would be banned from all existing club competition and the players would initially be banned from all FIFA competitions as well, but know that FIFA would be looking to negotiate in any case. It would be the end of UEFA in all probability and UEFA are very aware of this. It would also result in a restructuring of many of the national leagues.
(c) The clubs would renegotiate their television and media rights, rights of distribution via other streams etc..
(d) It remains the greatest fear of UEFA and all major national authorities that one day this will happen – which has resulted in a counter-proposal being drafted by UEFA.
(e) Timing wise, two very prominent clubs want it to happen as soon as possible (2018 – not a chance) and they have the support of a third club - but most are looking at 2022 to 2015 being a good option. A few clubs are looking at 2025 to 2028 and I suspect that could end up as the reality.

There are two counter-proposals to the pan-European breakaway that have partially been backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin. The first proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year and be based on past winners of the Champions League and European Cup and a few (not specified) more. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition again. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, although one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has on several occasions requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. This has dragged on for a year and nothing has happened. However, UEFA are now considering yet another proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL. The plan being put to clubs is a summer/preseason tournament that will evolve in to a parallel league, and of course eventually in to a complete breakaway for these clubs. As a first step to all of this, UEFA have negotiated minor changes that will see the four entrants from England, Germany, Spain and Italy enter the existing Champions League group stages without any qualification beyond their National League position (so no entry to qualifying rounds). This has been agreed by the European Club Association but UEFA did not want to discuss it with the separate group of “elite” sides discussing the Pan European League (and that “elite” group includes three English sides) as they are aware they will get no more than a shrug and no long-term support. The second major counter proposal is a Chinese proposal from the Dalian Wanda Group proposes to open up the lucrative Chinese and Far Eastern media markets by extending the league to include Chinese and South American clubs. This has yet to be discussed by the "elite" sides as a group although the proposals have been presented to a number of them already on an individual basis. The proposals are very broad-based and lack detail - their selling point is significant additional income for the "elite".

If the proposal for a breakaway goes ahead, there is every likelihood that the big money from television, sponsorship etc. would go with a breakaway league. It would completely rupture the operations of UEFA and I would expect it would require national associations like the FA to restructure their leagues. Nobody wants this but it is the eventual consequence I would expect. Initially it could be that there is a single 16 team league with 2 or 3 EPL teams making the initial plunge. If I had to speculate, I would think (1) you might eventually see something like five or six EPL teams leave for two-tier pan European league - but it won't be based on the UEFA rankings; (2) the Premier League would be disbanded as an organisation; (3) the FA would restructure in to two 20 team divisions with lower leagues regionalised as they were many years ago; (4) FIFA would ban all players from the breakaway teams from International football - perhaps rescinding that position to stop FIFA breaking up as well - they don't want further issues but the troubles are not going to go away. I could also see many teams lose their professional status. I would think we are probably 10 years away from any significant move at this time.

I hold a reasonably strong view in terms of the need to restructure football in Europe in any case. For me an eventual a breakaway pan-European league would force the restructuring of many of the national leagues, possibly resulting in a British league with perhaps only a couple of professional tiers and then regionalised amateur leagues below that. Financially I do not see that so many pro sides can be sustained within the sport which, like it or not, will see more and more money going in to the highest levels of the game. Governments will ensure that grassroots sport get funding but everything in the middle (Southern, Northern, Conference, Division 2, Scottish Divisions 1-3, League of Wales will not get the funding needed to continue on any sort of professional basis. For me, clubs should already recognise this and put their efforts in to getting there finances in order to see if they can make it to a British professional league that will need to flourish without perhaps six sides that have gone down the pan-European route - and have gone for good. Clubs like Accrington Stanley will need to carry on as amateurs or face extinction (yet again).

The game has changed significantly and will continue to do so. Football at the highest level is big business and attracts the sponsorship it does because the sponsors wish to tap in to the disposable income of the fans and ride the back of the advertising that flows naturally from the success some clubs achieve. Long gone are the days of the cloth-capped, hobnailed-booted, chimney sweep making his way, rattle in hand, to cheer on his team at Anfield on a Saturday afternoon. I have explained that there will be changes, probably within the next 10 to 12 years, which will force the restructuring of all of the leagues in Europe and likely do away with the likes of UEFA. You will have the opportunity to see the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and the other major European sides play in week-on-week regular competition at The Emirates, Stamford Bridge etc.. You will have the opportunity to visit Milan, Barcelona, Monaco, etc. every couple of weeks to watch your team play - if they make the cut. If you want to don your cloth cap, have a pint of wallop with your chums before going off to the local match, perhaps one of the sides from the suburbs will have survived so you can go and watch them?

It was thought that a possible option might have resulted from a potential landmark decision that UEFA were to make in June or July - and that could facilitate the ownership of lower-tier sides by the more senior sides and then work as a feeder club. However – the need to make that decision was avoided.}

Brilliant info Ed002! Thank you, especially for the personal insight.
Would you speculate that if the Chinese (Dalian Wanda) proposal to include the Chinese and S American clubs were to become more focused (and acceptable to the elite European clubs), then it would expedite the new league formation? (As you say, football now is big business and the lure of the lucrative markets of South America and especially China, may prove too irresistible to wait 10 years or so) .

Ed002, football looks like a bubble that will invariably burst. Do you see the sport being sustainable at the current rates of growth? The more money that goes into the game the more money the consumers have to pump in, will football not eventually price itself away from the fans?

{Ed002's Note - there will eventually be a breakaway that will take the big money away.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 12:01:48
Ed 002 that really a good although depressing read. I know we cannot be like Canute trying to hold back the tide of "progress" but for us non millionaire supporters it's depressing. It's hard enough finding the money to attend away matches in England but frankly it will be financially impossible for most of us to travel abroad regularly.

On the football front it will mean that clubs not in the elite group will find it really hard to attract the best talent and also even harder to bridge the gap and join the elite. There will also be a huge knock on effect on the development of young talent. Clubs in the lower leagues who are forced to be on a semi professional or amateur basis will not have the funds to take a chance and invest in youth to the same extent as they can now.

Football may be big business but there needs to be someone in charge who realises its about players and supporters.

{Ed002's Note - there will still be plenty of players about.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 13:19:22
Can you see a world football league becoming more like the NFL in its structure, with East and West leagues and then a Superbowl type competition at the end of the regular season?
Will teams be bought and moved to more lucrative cities or markets as the money men like to call them like the Rams?
Will a draft system be brought into operation to take players from national leagues?
Which national organisation will players register with. just thinking allowed here, so many issues to be resolved in something like this, interesting times ahead.

{Ed002's Note - No it won't be like that.}

Good evening ed002.
With all the comings and goings at psg all talk if fabhino leaving has gone a bit quiet.
You mentioned he had agreed a deal with psg is that deal still on the cards and will it gather pace after other deals are sorted?
Im still holding out hope that manchester united follow up on their previous interest.
Cherrs.

{Ed002's Note - The Fabinho transfer is subject to a separate negotiation than Mbappe although I understand the "media" think otherwise. It is rather convoluted as until this weekend there was another side in the picture for Mbappe. Now there isn't Monaco need to re-evaluate where they are - which someone well attuned to the general who is here now suspects might be the case.}

Thanks Ed002, I know you don't follow the media so thought I'd mention what's being said. Surely Monaco cannot keep selling their best players to PSG? Even keep selling their players period. Soon they are going to have to say no more will be sold this season. Otherwise it's just chaos. Players won't gel. If I was running Monaco I think I'd stop anymore sales until next summer. Anyway thanks.

By the way ed thanks for all the answers you do provide. I enjoy reading the replies to other folks questions too.

Morning Eds.

What is happening with Aubameyeng? Is it true that City are in talks to sign him or anyone else?

Thanks :)

{Ed001's Note - last I heard was he wanted to go but no one was willing to pay the asking price for a player of his age and coming with his baggage. He wanted a move to Spain, but Barca preferred Dembele and Madrid (his dream move) have no place for him. I was told Pep wants to bring in younger players and has no interest in him, so it would be a surprise for me if he went there. Though, at this point in the window, teams often have to go for alternatives options when the players they actually want are just unattainable, so I suppose it is possible they might end up settling for him. It is certainly not the plan though.}

Thanks for the reply Ed001.

Can I ask you about Lemar? I saw last night that they had bid for him, is that actually true or is he going to be staying at Monaco?

{Ed001's Note - Monaco are trying to hold together as much of the team as possible, but the sales have unsettled a lot of other players so it really depends on how much is offered. The only reason he is not an Arsenal player already is because Arsenal would not pay the asking price.}

You said the other day you wasnt aware of any interest from MU in Lemar I was wondering have you become aware of any interest or is all rubbish?

There's been a few reports in the last few days that MU have turned their attention to him.

Thanks.

Hello once again, eds. I know this might Seem like an unserious question, but I'm genuinely, as a Dane, asking: Is there any interest in Nicklas Bendtner, and - if Yes - Can you tell anyrhing about the involved parts (as in, Can you say who, and perhaps their level of interest? ) . Fully understand if you can't say that much about a player from The Norwegian league and you're not willing to/ not capable of measuring the level of interest :)
Have a good one, and keep up the good work - remember, that deadline Day is coming, and although it'll be a tough one, your work on this page is (presumably? ) about to become much easier ;)

{Ed002's Note - Bendtner moved to Rosenborg for this season and their transfer window is closed in Norway so if he moved he could not be replaced.}

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed in terms of positions. I have explained about the players.}

Morning Ed002.

You mentioned something about Ox to Chelsea. Is that what we should expect to happen now or is nothing settled on it?

Can I also ask if AFC are interested in Renato Sanchez? I looked on other pages and I see teams are trying to sign him, just curious who (Milan or Chelsea I think you said previous, so maybe I have the answer already) .

I did ask on the Arsenal page but the posts hardly ever make it now, is there any news to report from this weekend in Monaco or is it a day too early since the EL hasn't been drawn yet?

Thanks again for the updates :)

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in Oxlade Chamberlain. I have explained the options and that that is where we are. REnato Sanches was discussed with a couple of sides yesterday - it doesn't involve Arsenal but he is available for loan but they need guarantees of playing time.}
