In fairness they can’t win. The fans get upset when they post this type of articles just as they do when they write articles about Haaland and Mbappe. It seems like the realll meaty transfer gossip went with James Pearce, and the echo gets nothing now. They still have columns to write so they resort to just publishing rubbish like the above. I personally don’t even bother anymore, and just go straight to the Athletic, but I acknowledge that for the local supporters it’s not that easy to avoid as the echo is your main source of local news.

Agreed. None of the Echo people have sources. The only thing left to write is this kind of shite.

It's a local newspaper. It needs the club and it needs to write on the club. They get access for being a compliant mouthpiece. Nothing wrong with that. I don't really recall too many scoops from the Echo since digital.

I’m flattered.

 

I do like the fact you've put your head into the lions den and become the leader of the pro-FSG faction.

 

When there are factions, it makes it much easier to have feuds and we need that until the season starts.

 

At that point, feuds become much easier to generate; we should have sold him, we should have kept him, he's finished, he needs more games, sack him, where is Gerrard - that's when we're back in business.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can salvage Liverpool career and save FSG millions

https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/alex-oxlade-chamberlain-liverpool-news-20890871

 

@Barrington Womble this one's for you, mate.

Phew. Frankly I think they should build this up more - it's been such a clear path to profitability. We should go the whole hog, put Trent in midfield to save us having to buy another midfielder too and let chamberlain not only be back up right back, but full time full back too - he'll have banked us the Neco money  while saving us the 30m on neuhause.

Stone Cold Stacksy vs Scott“The Rock”_M will be headlining KFC’s/Zoom call’s for the next ten years. Daisy will resort to throwing themselves off high objects to get the neg rate up.


I’ve no issue with 3 Stacks. I felt I mocked the ridiculous tweet before posting, he didn’t. 
 

I’ve drawn a physical and metaphorical line under it, and here it is…

I’m not pro-FSG or anti-FSG. When they do something right I’ll give them credit, if they do something wrong, I’ll criticise (see my auto signature).

 

IMO, there is more good than bad and the evidence less / made up stuff posted about them is stuff of tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists, hoping if they repeat the same nonsense, it’ll become the truth.

 

Anyway, if I’m part of a faction can my faction be DX? I feel most of the factions are 3MB or F.B.I.

I call it as I see it. As I’ve repeatedly said, I criticise when I think it’s required - which isn’t ever post on every thread.

 

If you click the hyper link in my auto signature and read the post it takes you to, you will see this. If you’re not prepared to read it, then there isn’t much I can do.

I reckon we throw Adrian up front. Could save us millions.

I heard a podcast a few months about City having a huge desire to be liked and respected, they are ultra sensitive to coverage the Red teams get while they go a full season winning every game 80 nil and no one gives a shit, it was why they never went "officially" beyond the £65m mark before. They didn't want to be seen to be buying success (stop laughing down the back) but have now accepted that to be popular they need popular players. Hence Kane and Grealish and fuck their £250m it costs to do it.

 

They will be hard to stop the cheating cunts.

I fucking despise the Echo and their band of latte quaffing hipster no marks that quite clearly display all the qualities and skills you'd expect from a school work experience outing.

Not that the other teams and supporters in the league can see it but us beating City and being competitive was good for the league as a whole. 

Look at the recent record in league cups - FA cups and League Titles City are just running away and dominating everything.

Utd thought they done well last season finishing were they did but they were a million miles away from challenging for the title.

City would have gotten more wins if they needed too.

 

Its a bit of a sickener I have to say if they add Grealish and Kane cause unless we have a season where we've zero injuries and everyone plays the the maximum we wont have enough to overhaul that City squad. 

Sky / BT & the pundits waxing lyrical about them but City have taken away the competitiveness of the competitions there in & being praised for it. Joke.

Everyone seems ok with city winning it if they can't too. And to be honest I'd sooner they won it than the team in Salford. 

 

As for them, they were happy because if that rice Krispie cunt was your manager you'd be fucking made up with 2nd too!

    • I think they do. In the 90s and a bit later we would spend nearly as much as united in transfer fees but we would buy 4 or 5 average players like we were trying to build a team every window or at least thats how it felt thinking back. United just saw a weak spot in the team or a player moved on and they went an bought what they believed to be the best replacement for big money. Once you've built the top side its harder to improve but when that top player comes along who would improve you,  you buy him. We have loads of quiet transfer windows for me that should mean for examples sake if say Halaand is on the market we should be able to buy him without all the fans turning into bean counters and complete panic about the financial repercussions. We are Liverpool 19 times league champions, 6 times European cup winners we should be able to act like a Billy big bollocks in the market now and then because we don't go big or even medium most windows, the books dont need to be balanced at the end of every window, we can carry debt or profit into the next ones depending on the teams needs.   In my opinion we need a midfielder and possibly a forward if that means this window we spend more than we've earnt so be it, the next summer window we will undoubtedly sell one of our forwards and a few of our midfielders, the most important thing is the time in-between the windows the team needs to be competing for titles, our weaknesses need to be addressed so we can remain on top, everyone has different opinions on our weaknesses mine is way too many injury prone midfielders with the likes of Kieta and Ox who when given chances the rare times they ate fit don't take them.   FSG said the redbird investment meant we are were we should be if there was no pandemic it reset the losses, now the deal is out of mind we hear of the devastating effect of corona.    I'm not even arsed, the window is still open, if it ends and we've just signed konate and some kids I'd say they haven't done enough this window but I'll get over it as said a million times Klopp is our superstar and FSGs golden Goose.
    • For the Palace game i think we only had about 10k capacity. my Dad didn't have a smartphone so was told to pick up a paper ticket from the ticket office. We were told what time to go in the ground with the NFC passes and i think the window was between 1 hour and 15 mins before KO so that suited me. we went to the office to pick up his ticket and there was a massive spiraling queue accumulating outside for people whose NFC passes weren't working-scanning issues and downloading. The queue wasn't moving particular fast so a few must have missed KO. The pre season friendlies should help them get their act together but i wouldn't take any risks on getting to the ground late for the first few league games next season. Somewhere like the kemlyn is full of old men so i'd give yourself even more time if sitting there
    • I think what we see with FSG is something that is particular to FSG rather than being a widespread feature of modern football. They are what Tom Wolfe labelled 'Masters of the Universe', thinking that everything they do is brilliance and they don't consult the little people on anything. Other owners are happy to bob along hoping something will turn up rather than actively changing things. FSG, on the other hand, are not ones for leaving well enough alone. The ESL is the classic example of this. They think the financial basis of football is nuts and something must be done about it. The ESL is something, therefore we have to do it. In fairness, you can add expanding Anfield and hiring Jurgen Klopp to your list. And before anyone says they were no-brainers, staying at Anfield was not the consensus choice among the fanbase, many of whom were seduced by the shiny new thing - gee, where can we see that at play now? - and Klopp could have had his choice of clubs, yet it was FSG who landed him.
    • Lee Clark is OK by me. When I was still in high school he lived near some mates of mine and always used to come out and play football with us if he saw us playing. 
    • Also FSG isn’t a hedge fund. Henry made his money through having a hedge fund, FSG is a sports investment vehicle. They aim to make money from sport.
