Mixed red list ‘solutions’ news & Jones earns England praise – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are still working on trying to have their players – four of them at least! – available for big games after the international break.


Firm ‘no’ from Tite but another request is in

Some brave soul asked Brazil boss Tite about allowing some of his players to leave the Selecao early, not playing against Uruguay and thus ending their quarantine period earlier. It would also have allowed them to prepare and play against Watfordbut the answer was a definite negative.

“There was never that possibility [of an early return to England]. They were called up for the three games.” Fair enough, really.

However, other players have sent a letter to the Prime Minister asking for a change in rulings which would see five days instead of 10 for the post-travel quarantine period after heading to red-list countries.

In turn, that might mean we could have two more players available for the trip to Atletico Madrid.

  • Newcastle United are now owned by Saudi Arabia’s state fund. Insert your own jokes…at your own peril.
  • Nemanja Matic will be sold so United can buy Declan Rice. That’s £1m taken care of, where are they getting the other £79m?
  • Aaron Ramsey is available! Juve are “ready to listen to offers”. They’re waiting. Still waiting. Still waiting…hmm, might be a while. Perhaps that £400k a week deal wasn’t such a good idea…
