Rodgers questions Arsenal’s ‘class’

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has declared, not for the first time, that Luis Suarez is not for sale.

Speaking to the media about the bids for the Uruguayan, Rodgers said he was ‘confident’ Suarez would remain a Mugsmasher and that he was somewhat annoyed with Arsenal’s bid.

“I’ve got to say I’ve always associated Arsenal as a club with class and so there was a wee bit of a game there,” he told the Guardian. “For us, it’s about moving on and doing our own work. There will come a point where they understand our position.

“Obviously they have an interest and they put that interest in with two bids which were nowhere near what the player is worth. That’s within their right. There is a market in football for players but from us the message is constant. We do not want to sell.”

Liverpool’s public position remains strong on this one. From John Henry’s ‘smoking’ Tweet and various declarations from the manager and club officials, it seems Rodgers is counting on his team’s top scorer being around for their new campaign.

“I’m extremely confident that Luis will be here. The offers have come in as you would expect for one of the world’s leading strikers but as time goes by I’m gaining more confidence because I have a chance to be with him on a day-to-day basis and he gets the chance to be around his team-mates. We’re in total control of the situation as a club and that’s how it will remain.

“The owners have been brilliant. If it was another club needing the money or desperate for the money it could have been a different story. But John Henry and Tom [Werner, the chairman] have been first class through the whole process, so there are no arguments there and it gives you the confidence they are not in any hurry to sell because they understand we are trying to build here.”

It doesn’t look as if there’ll be a speedy resolution to this one, and it’s all getting a bit fraught despite Arsene Wenger’s desire to find an amicable conclusion to the summer’s biggest transfer drama.

Still, it’s a bit much for Rodgers to questions Arsenal’s ‘class’ just because they made a bid for a Liverpool player. Especially when you’re in charge of a club who wore t-shirts to support a man guilty of making racist remarks at an opponent.

The man we’re trying to buy.

Oh.

Balls.

Have to admit the +1Lb bid stinks of inside information on Arsenals part and if it were another club bidding 1Lb over the release (or not) clause in one of our players contracts there would be much hysteria.

It looks a dangerous game Arsenal are playing, they could easily get burned in so many ways

Master Bates

maybe the release clause was common knowledge like Ba’s . Anyway paying 40 MILLION for a player is not disrespectful

bestie

Exactly, if there’s anything wrong with our bid then the same could be said about Liverpool’s for Diego Costa.

ilovema8

Why does everyone focus on the 1 and not the 40 MILLION that went with it…

Bunburyist

So true. The press, and the rivals fans who let the press think for them, think that the £1 extra is ‘cheeky’, so it gets all the attention. I’ve even heard it put that this represents Wenger’s characteristic stinginess, which is so incredibly bizarre I don’t even know where to begin. Actually, I do know where to begin: If the contract stipulates any bid over £40m triggers a clause (putting aside what’s in the clause), then paying any more than £1 to do so is flat out stupid, and in fact this is just what the press (and the rival… Read more »

Sweaty Testicles/Scrotum

They should have bid a penny over £40 million.

Manchester Gooner

That’s funny.

However, if Liverpool ignored the £1, then no fucking clause was triggered.

Bunburyist

There’s more to this than you think, exemplified by the fact that Suarez and his reps are considering legal action or Premier League intervention or a transfer request. There is no way the clause was simply to “let Suarez know of a bid.” That’s ridiculous. It may also be that the clause we triggered is dependent on us qualifying for the Champions League, which means we’ll have to wait until August 28th to get him. The reason we can leave the bid as is, is because there is no other club after him. We just have to wait until August… Read more »

THEEEO

Clauses are there so agents can let interested parties know if their player wants out, maybe not officially but everyone in football knows this is the case before agreeing to one. Don’t see anyone bidding £10m more than a release clause just to show “class”.

Bee

£ not lb, thankyou

BillyBatts

No, I think it was £40m and 4 quarter pounder with cheese meals for Jay Spearing.

Eboue's Hairbrush

I like to think if it were accepted, they would have paid the £1 in 1p pieces.

JustAnotherMong

There is a £ key, you know.

davidnewzealand

Not on our keyboards. We have the good old $ 🙂

mate, your ‘dot’ key seems to be a bit jumpy!

If you’re using a non-British keyboard, I believe you can still produce a pound sterling symbol with Alt+0163 (or Option+3 on Macs)…or you can copy and paste from someone else’s text…

You British “lot” sure do complain about a ton of shite. Twitter has exposed to a huge group of whiny Arsenal fans. I mean there are some real anal a-holes on twitter

£ < $

gooner

It’s Brenda in the news everyday mouthing off not Arsène. The same Brenda that talks about 40m +1 like it’s just 20 cents. Now she’s talking class? Bitch please!

Rictastic

brenda’s the one who’s been talking about the Suarez deal. I really wish we had more choices than Suarez though. I agree his a top player but really Arsenal????? Is he the only cookie in your cookie jar???

Bendtner+Park+Chamack = Benparch

This, to me, is wit.

Brenda Rogers

My husband’s name is Brendan, you know, with an “n”?

Manchester Gooner (RustyGun)

I think so, too.

Behind the scene, fuck Liverpool and fuck us. All cunts.

But to show it the public, adding £1 to £40m has just given them the chance to throw shit on us.

Why not £41m?

I know £1m may buy one or two Parks, but out of the total amount it doesn’t make much difference.

Andy Mack

Who made the ‘£1’ public knowledge?

Manchester Gooner (RustyGun)

It’s really a war there. Do you think they invented the £1 extra?

Maybe.

But it looked like we did it.

Whether it was there to say “Fuck you” to Liverpool, I don’t know.

Bunburyist

It was there because it triggered some clause in his contract.

Tell me something: If you went to a shop to buy a new stereo and were told that ANYTHING more than £100 would get you the stereo, would you pay £100.01, or £105? You’d be pretty stupid to part with £4.99 if .01 could do the same job.

It’s not cheeky what Arsenal did. It’s smart, and by the way, it was Liverpool, not Arsenal, that made the bid public, and they have the gall to talk about class.

Manchester Gooner

why the fuck didn’t we bid 40m+1 penny? We still wasted 99pence.

If it’s true we made a bid like that, then things behind the scene are dirty to me.

Bunburyist

…err, are you serious? £1 is about equivalent to a penny in the scale of things here, and besides, it is common in such agreements to offer 1 full dollar or pound sterling more in order to conclude the deal, not 1 penny, which is considered ungentlemanly.

I think you’re having trouble with this idea of £1 and its significance. Waste of 99p? Please don’t be silly. You know perfectly well why it was £1 and not one penny, and £1 instead of £5m.

Manchester Gooner

to conclude the deal? not even in negotiation yet.

For me, giving one penny more to buy a stereo is not gentlemanly, at all.

I have never seen or heard of any bid like that for a good footballer.

My anger about this is that, it gave Liverpool the chance to bring the media to ridicule us.

Of course, it is inappropriate to make it public. But, it’s really a bad idea to bid like that.

Manchester Gooner

No, I don;t know the significance of 1pound is.

Somebody even asked why didn;t we pay 10mln more then the initially agreed price to get Higuain. And now you told me to be smart and act like a gentleman by giving 1pound extra.

Of course I know 40m+1quid is higher than 40m only. Whatever it triggered is not the point.

Bunburyist

You’re getting really hung up on this. It’s clear you don’t understand why we offered this extra pound, and are hung up on quibbling about a stereo analogy (okay, then £101 instead of £100.01, happy? the point is the same. Happy?). You seem to think offering this extra quid was a lack of class. It wasn’t. It was smart business. Whatever it triggered is not the point, but what IS the point is that it did, or was supposed to, trigger something.That’s the whole point of it. You can’t dismiss the trigger as besides the point while at the same… Read more »

Manchester Gooner

I am not “hellbent” on finding reasons to blame Arsenal.

You told me not to care about media. So, why do Arsenal need to have good PR?

I made my point extremly clear, that the bid gave Liverpool the opportunity to paint us in the bad light. Whether they are bad cunts, I don’t care.

Bunburyist

Honestly, if that’s what you’re concerned about (giving Liverpool an excuse “to paint us in a bad light”), I’d let it go. It’s really, really not worth caring what Brendan Rodgers or the Daily Star say about our bid or our club. Besides, Rodgers and John Henry have made themselves look like fools in their public comments (might as well ask Henry what Liverpool were smoking when they signed Carroll for £35m), while Wenger has been very professional throughout. If there are no other bidders for Suarez, then there is no reason to offer more than what is required to… Read more »

Micko
Gareth Murray

The apparent “release clause” had been widely reported in the media. Probably put there by Suarez’s agents, I mean it’s not the first time he’s engineered a move away from a club.

If there is indeed a 40million + get on clause in his contract then why on earth would anyone offer more if they’re the only one’s bidding.

Plev

Yeah he really looks like he wants to stay too.. If that’s not a “Get me the fuck out of here face” I don’t know what is. But it’s understandable that a club that paid 20m for Downing and 36m for Carrol thinks Suarez is worth 80m

Footatability

I was totally against the deal a couple of weeks ago but ehh the idea of Suarez joining us is becoming more and more appealing, well to me at least. Plus im sure his get me the fuck out of here face will turn into one of thirst and desire when he sees Girouds abs of steel, if we can channel that thirst into match performances…epl title come at us.

fencegooner

The problem here is Brenda still thinks
he’s managing a club at the top. the
man is not even fit to mention Arsene
or Arsenal. could not hold up a candle
to what Arsene has done yet he blabs
as if they’re equals. He thought he had
furthered his career by moving to
Liverpool from Swansea but he now
realises that’s not the case. he’s putting
on a “big manager”show for the press
but I bet in the confines of his home
he breaks down to the reality that he’s
just AVERAGE!

BPGF

We’re talking of the guy with the mean and moody portrait of himself on his wall at home, I doubt he feels average, even if the rest of the football world know he’s a plank.

Eboue's Hairbrush

+1 Fencegooner. The phrase I keep hearing is “Liverpool is just as big a club, if not bigger than Arsenal”. Funny that as we’ve been in the Champions League now how many years running? I know they’ve one it, but they’re a distinctly average top half team run by a guy who looks like he’s been run over by the ugly bus.

Bubba

I agree, it does seem a little bit shady. However, Blogs makes a good point, in that Rodgers is defending a known racist/diver.

But, I think the main point here is that AW seems to have missed the train with Higuaín; if we had actually signed him when we could have, we wouldn’t have to even bear all this tug-of-war, drama and anxiety that this transfer window has devolved into.
But hey, what do I know?

CountLeaf

Suarez would be a much better buy than Higuain, if only for the fact that he wouldn’t just be a similar (though perhaps better, time will tell) striker than Giroud. and if memory serves me well, we were also loud about how a certain skunk wants to stay with us, being happy etc.. we all know how that ended. finally, concerning him being a kukluxer, i thing this has been totally blown out of proportions. he’s probably quite stupid and very impulsive, and gave others chance to be hurt with that. in terms of race, he’s belonged to minorities ever… Read more »

the only way this is going to end is we end up buying no-one.if arsenal were to spend 50mil,they would have made the bid by now or unless suarez hands in a transfer request;if they delay this any longer RM will come and sweep Suarez off his feet.

Bee

if we bid 50 they would still whine about how insulting it was

ChrisGoona

50m will not get us Suarez. Liverpool seem to be holding firm and are very aware that selling to us will give them no chance of ever catching us, if they had a chance that is…

neutral

That’s why I said it can go bad in so many ways, If I were Liverpool I would not sell our best player to a direct rival, can understand why Wenger thinks they would, seeing as he sold United Van Persie.

Not only does Liverpool not want to sell to us but you can bet that both Saurez and Liverpool would rather he went to RM, the longer this drags on the more likely that becomes. They would probably sell to RM for 35M

Bunburyist

RM are more intent on sweeping Gareth Bale off his feet (which shouldn’t be a problem given Bale’s feet get swept from under him by air, grass blades, and imagined feet). I highly doubt they will spend £40m+ on Suarez after £80m+ on Bale. They’ll be sorted for attackers after Bale. City are sorted for strikers, Chelsea are after Rooney, Tottenham just bought Soldado, PSG are sorted for strikers, Monaco just took Cavani, Barca just bought Neymar, and Madrid have prioritized Bale… We’re the only club in for Suarez (willing to spend what he’s roughly worth), so I’m relatively confident… Read more »

Sproing

I agree – the +1£ looks to have come about because someone (Suarez’s agent?) let Arsenal believe there was a release clause so they could snaffle a world class player with little to no bargaining. It’s not the bid Rodgers is saying lacks class, it’s the curveball attempt to sneak away their best player. Turns out the someone was off the mark/using an Arsenal bid as a feeler for Madrid or the like so they can sweep in with a more appropriate bid. Arsenal are coming off as mugs either way and looking mighty naive too. Regardless of Suarez’s ability,… Read more »

Fuck off Brendan Rogers, so we bid £40m and that’s not showing class, would you prefer some oil sheikh or some arms trafficker to bid £100m for Suarez? Absolutely nobody from our side talked publicly about Suarez, just a couple of Daily Mail reports went along with our two bids and that’s not showing class? Fuck off back to eating rats

Bonjour

Used to feel a bit sorry for them the past few years, vilified by the media because of Suarez, taking eternal stick from plastic Manure fans who have finally won more titles (the vast majority of plastic fans don’t even know how many). Now you can fuck off the direction of Stoke and get 15th next season

Yeah, and taking a dig at Arsenal by stating that Liverpool (who haven’t been in the CL for years now) are a bigger club than us is very classy, you stupid fuck.

What is wrong with this cleft palate mong? The only people talking about the transfer are Liverpuddle, until the weekend Arsenal haven’t said shit. Just because Madrid are scandalous crooks willing to throw 100m at a monkey in white clothing doesn’t make Suarez worth a dime more than 40m (well, maybe a pound extra but no more). 40m for a habitually suspended biter and serial bannee is more of a bargain than any facially disfigured gibbering Irish mutant could possibly need. Fuck this guy and his has-been club.

He’s not correct at all. We have bid on a player, like everyone in the world does. Nobody sits there patiently waiting until the contract is expired and then calls and attempts to buy. I suspect you may be a fellow cleft palate mong, or just a troll.

completely and utterly wrong. Please list in clear english how the management, board, players or pro-arsenal media (ha!) have in any way acted in a comparable manner to Barca or any of the other clubs that you’re implying we have behaved like.

RobM

Yes how dare we bid on a player… Actually now I think about it that IS rather un-Arsenal like these days.

But be clear on something: It’s Liverpool who made the bid public and turned it into a media circus, not us.

Thierry Bergkamp

I really don’t see what the fuss is about regarding meeting the release clause, doesn’t it happen all the time? Aren’t Liverpool doing it themselves with that Costa bloke? The only difference here seems to be how poorly it’s been worded, no-one knows that it means, and the bid has to greater than a certain amount rather than equal to an amount. If the contract had stipulated a bid of £40m and that’s what we had bid then no-one would’ve kicked-up a fuss.

Regardless, the clause exists so why would we bid anymore than stated? Rogers is an idiot.

karma

amen. A (properly worded) release clause is exactly the same as putting a price sticker on something. You legally have to sell X players for Y price. Then it’s up to agreeing the personal terms with the player.

To everyone whinging about the +1 pound clause, ask yourself how many times you’ve gone into a store and handed over extra $$ beyond what the price on the shelf was. It’s madness to suggest paying more than you have to is somehow classy

LANS

Liverpool’s owners tweet that Arsene must be smoking crack.
And now Rodgers is saying we’re the classless ones?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but we made 2 bids for a player.
It’s summer, the transfer window is open, that’s what clubs are meant to do.

And it was them who leaked the news to the press.

Why are people going on about the £1. Forty million pounds is too much money to spend on the crazy idiot anyway. Besides do we really want Suarez, can’t we get a player with a better temperament, with the same skills. I’m sure there’s a player out there.
Oh, and not to be too picky, but the bubble caption on the photo, should read ‘payaso’ not ‘paiaso’. Who is Suarez referring to, himself or Rogers?

Sweaty Testicles/Scrotum

‘Besides do we really want Suarez, can’t we get a player with a better temperament, with the same skills. I’m sure there’s a player out there.’

I’m sure there is but the fans wouldn’t give him a chance to succeed unless he is a big name and costs upwards of £20 million.

I got thumbed down heavily for posting something along these lines a while back but I honeslty see serious fan rage occuring if we don’t bring in a big name, ‘proven’ striker.

Harry rednapps dog

Rodgers is a puppet for the yanks and did the scouse bastards just not activate Diego costas clause. All arsenal did was put an offer in that surpassed Suarezs buy out clause by a pound.

Guys i dont fricking know anymore. the bid does stink hadcwe offered maybe e.g. 45/50m straight up maybe liverpool would have sold last month now that transfers are going sky-high i just cant see ut happening. yes suarez has baggage i understand that but on the pitch he is immense and players are afraid of how good he is we havent had that type of player since henry in all fairness. nit comparing or anything i guess i just want us to mean something again coz all i know is i spent £160 on tickets for this weekend plus extra… Read more »

I would never say I was ashamed of the club disappointed yes but never ashamed.

I’d really like us to go to Anfield and blast that bloated self-righteous cloud that Rodgers is resting on to pieces.

Brenda needs to shut up. Arsenal have mentioned Suarez by name only a couple of times, Wilshere was asked about him. And Arsene only recently acknowledged our interest in him and that we made a bid. Arsenal haven’t mentioned at all how the negotiatons are going or what is holding them up. It is Liverpool who mentioned £40,000,001 amount. It is Liverpool who have been coming up with almost daily statements on Suarez for the past 2-3 weeks. Rodgers is trying to stand up in front of the media and show his fans that he cares and won’t let Suarez… Read more »

How does this deal have any relation to VanPursie? If they accept, they accept. If they don’t, its their own problem to deal with a want-away player. Suarez CLEARLY wants out, same as Cesc wanted to go back home, same as VanPursie betrayed us… You do not pay over the odds for a player who will not be willing to play for the selling club

Nah why risk spending £50m on a player who wants out? the longer this plays out the longer liverpools hands will be forced and eventually we could get him for a compromise deal of around £42m.

or or Madrid will pay even lesser money and get suarez. Liverpool id assume prefer he went abroad. basically they are baiting Madrid and we could be left out in the cold with sanogo.

I haven’t see a lack of class from us..it is not like the Park signing where we hijacked him from another deal.

But arsenal will look like clowns if they don’t manage to sign Suarez

fencegooner

The problem here is Brenda still thinks he’s managing a club at the top. the man is not even fit to mention Arsene or Arsenal. could not hold up a candle to what Arsene has done yet he blabs as if they’re equals. He thought he had furthered his career by moving to Liverpool from Swansea but he now realises that’s not the case. he’s putting on a “big manager”show for the press but I bet in the confines of his home he breaks down to the reality that he’s just AVERAGE!

Well, I would also question the class of any club bidding on a player like Suarez.

Signing him goes against some of the very essence of the Arsenal – or making a Robert Johnson, if you like.

Rodgers is hamming it up for the Liverpool fans. He comes across as an idiot but he’s playing for his audience. The majority lap that shit up.

We should bid more often for our rival’s players. The appeal of playing for Arsenal huge. Imagine how many top players would choose Arsenal if “financially” the terms were the same…

I think we should strategically start bidding for United, Chelski and Citeh players, and let the media circus truly begin! Suarez is about to hand in a transfer request due to our interest, so lets fuck everyone else up! 🙂

When will Brendan Rodgers shut his deluded mouth? He’s a big time Charlie with a face like the most boring koala in the world. He’s trying to fool everyone he’s a human but I’ve got him sussed.

Modhabobo

The lack of irony from Liverpool is astounding.

DangerMouse

I think Brendan Rogers is really cool. And his lifesize self portrait in his living room is really classy.

where’s that sarcasm font when you need it.

Al2.0

Arsenal have Class and lots of balls.. I mean – Bidding £40 mil plus one..

Liverpool : We want more..

Arsenal : More you say..

Liverpool : Yes.. Give us more..

Arsenal : Here have a £1.. Will that suffice??

Liverpool : *#@&@*#&$*#@&$*#@

Oh I love Arsenal..

This deal is never going to happen. Liverpool are adamant they do not want to sell. We do not want to bid more than we already have. John Cross at the Mirror relentlessly puts out articles about it as if the clubs are locked in negotiations. We bid like 2 weeks ago. Nothing has happened since then. Brendan is however showing his naivety and inexperience as a manager by rising to these media started rumors and chatting bullshit at the press every day. I bet they’re all sitting there sniggering at the fact he spews more shit every day giving… Read more »
