So our summer business essentially boils down to allowing our most reliable midfielder to leave on a free, flogging a bunch of fringe players, and signing a defender to displace a fan favourite.

Yep, but the same old faces say that's ok, so just you pipe down now.

Well, until Salah leaves on deadline day.

You make it sound like a bad thing.

I think we'll be alright as long as Ole is in charge.

Throw enough money and penalties at them and he might do alright. Thing is they want the league and CL, the latter will rely on some modicum of tactical nous the former consistency and the need for city and Chelsea to fuck up. We are more likely to fail to challenge though due to our seemingly lack of quality past the first 15 or so.

I get that there's still plenty of time to sign someone but too many bits of news all saying we won't be signing anyone is a bit worrying.

Can only hope Edwards is playing a great double bluff.

Liverpool's academy can make the club millions...

To be fair that’s pretty fucking good. Not quite Chelsea level good, but not so long ago our best prospects used to always end up at Accrington Stanley.

I agree. I don’t know why there are some snipey posts. 
 

Not everybody is going to be Gerrard, Owen, McManaman, Trent etc but if we can make good money off those we deem not good enough, surely that’s a positive? 
 

It’s a far preferable position to what we had under latter day Houllier, Benitez & Rodgers where the players were clearly not good enough and we made fuck all on them.

If love a couple of more young lads to breakthrough in addition to Trent and Jones. Elliot and Bradley seem to be the next up so hopefully they can nail a spot in the squad.

Saw this on Reddit and they’ve overlaid the actually spend in the second pic. Obvs city’s revenue is a bit of a joke but there are more than a few clubs who would be screwed. Just look at our neighbours.. I fear for them I really do.

It is. At least if they don't make it we can generate some money.

They are really badly run.

 

Wages as a % of turnover is about 85% and highest in league.

 

Their revenue simply isn't growing even before covid and they overpay for shite.

 

They could be in real trouble if keep going way are.
