The transfer window came and went and the Reds did very little. Understandably, many of the natives are restless and FSG are coming under increasing scrutiny, not least with the news that Michael Edwards is reportedly off at the end of the season.
Chris Smith is joined by TLW Editor Dave Usher and long time TLW contributors Paul Natton and Dan Thomas in a bumper length episode of the podcast.
Why no new forward? Should the entire budget have been spent on Konate? Do we need new owners? Is there even a realistic and palatable alternative to FSG? All of this is covered as well as some broader points about the damage the oil clubs have done to the transfer market and why transfer windows in general are a miserable and frustrating time.
The lads also discuss some of the best and worst transfer windows of recent times, with Gerard Houllier's summer of 1999 in particular bringing back a lot of happy memories.
