PODCAST SPECIAL: TRANSFER COMMITTEE MADNESS
This is another game devised for us by John Furlong. So thanks to him.
It works like this – we will have two mock transfer committees. Each will have 25 minutes maximum to come to an agreement about transfer strategy, who comes, who goes and when and present to me wherein I will be the blag John Henry. A role I was born to play. They can do all this within the following boundaries:
15m to spend.
You can only sell the players listed for the values listed and only buy the players listed for the values listed.
As many suggested changes as you like but I may question any attempts to be overambitious in terms of workload.
I will ask questions about age, willingness to join and likely wage expenditure too.
No one can be recalled from loan but loanees do form part of the squad long term.
For the sake of this argument no one can be loaned.
Let me be clear – we have no idea how much Liverpool will have to spend in this window or how the committee will work or what transfer fees will be or the likely signings. We’re just playing a game.
Hope you enjoy the hour.
