FSG are not shit

Recommended Posts

Their real skill is in the nuance of their communications. Allowing the Coutinho saga to rule the summer airwaves, conveniently ignoring Can imminently walking on a free, and that absolutely nothing of any merit was added to the defence (with Clyne out, Milner and Klavan's tired legs a year older, we're worse off than last year). All crowned off with a customary late failed bid for the type of player they have neither means nor appetite to buy (for Lemar, see: Draxler, Willian, Mkhitaryan, Costa, Teixeira), to keep the masses hopeful. FSG out-Kenriwght Bill Kenwright.

 

Any journalist who still peddles their shit and calls themselves a fan of the club should be ashamed.

They are actually pretty clever aren't they...they are presiding over the least succesful period in our history since the 50's yet stand to make an enormous amount of money from their ownership and from presiding over that least succesful period for 50 odd years.

That's pretty much it, they've focused on improving every area of the business apart from it's core business. Very much a case of FSG being the ownership equivalence of...

I'm sure there might be a marginal gain in having all the players on one site but not convinced it is £50m important.

I live not far from Melwood and there will be a scrap over those 160 houses as well , as the traffic up Mill Lane to the Jolly Miller is ridiculous after somebody agreeing a shit load of new houses on the Holly Lodge site and across the road.

I'll be amazed if anyone moves onto that Holly lodge site myself, have a gander at their prices. Had a look myself and it's convinced me (as if I needed it) that the housing market will collapse soon.

 

They'll struggle to get that permission for them 160 on Melwood, it will cripple the infrastructure around there

Barratt site by me in Anfield built a few years ago, crazy money 130/180k to live off Mill Rd ?

Apart from the fact I wouldn't touch a Barrett house ( worked for them years ago ) anyone with that type of money can get a better area for that money, way better. If I was buying a house and had a 180k mortgage I would be buying a fixer upper in a nicer area. There were a lot of incentives to be fair but still crazy.

I rent out my old house in Tuebrook ahouse in that road was bought in 2011 for 72k similar condition it is in now, just sold for half that.

Liverpool’s American owners have slapped a stunning £1billion price tag on the club after preliminary buy-out talks.

 

Sunday Mirror Sport can reveal that leading financier Amanda Staveley, who has strong links to billionaires in the Middle East, made initial soundings about the club’s availability on Sunday.

 

 

Staveley, who runs PCP Capital Partners, a fund with global assets of more than £28billion.

 

She was at the 1-1 draw between Newcastle and Liverpool on a fact-finding mission - and has made previous attempts to acquire the Mersey giants.

 

The 44-year-old was involved with Dubai investors in takeover attempts in 2007 which were ultimately aborted, and last year her firm made a joint offer for a share of the club with Chinese company Everbright Limited – but it was rejected by the Reds’ current owners, the Fenway Sports Group.

 

Staveley was instrumental in Sheikh Mansour’s purchase of Manchester City in 2008 and knows that Liverpool is on the radar of the Middle East billionaires anxious to invest in a leading English club.

 

But Fenway, who bought the club seven years ago for £300m, are looking for a major return on their investment and will only sell for the right price.

FSG wouldn't sell us for 1 billion. They priced a minority stake in the club at 1 billion about a year ago... from a Chinese consortium.

exactly, with the new TV deal being done next year there is no way they are bailing out when there are rumours of big american companies getting involved. They can do nothing and continue to make money off us. That includes not investing in the squad.

Big club acting like big club.

 

If this was rumoured to be us, FSG, would already be telling us how much it was gonna cost and why we can’t have it because the fans won’t pay for it and corporate boxes don’t sell as well when situated behind the goal. Forgetting that we’re already paying top dollar to watch this gang of retards every other week.

While they arent perfect by a long shot, its possible our opinion on the owners took a turn for the worse when Moss sent off Mane....

    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
