    The quicker we get Alexis out of the club, the lower the asks will be from our players. No way he would be asking for £200K/week if we didn’t have that elephant wage in the middle of the locker room.

    Can’t fault him for trying, though!

    That makes no sense. He’d be asking for £200k because another club is seemingly offering him the same amount. And if another club was only offering him less than we are, he’d re-sign with us.

    United Away fans get a reduced allocation to Anfield compared to everyone else, I would guess because of crowd trouble fears in the past.

    EDIT: looked it up, it's cause the United fans won't sit down, so they need not sell some seats to make sure there's room or something.
