Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

Currently the 6th highest payroll in baseball and just over the luxury tax threshold, so they are paying 20% on top of that overspend.

 

As things stand now, they'll have the 5th highest payroll next year and will just dip under the luxury tax threshold.

Spotrac - 2022 salary breakdown

 

The figures for 2022 are incomplete as there are a good number of players that will go through salary arbitration in the offseason.

We've just given Trent a new contract, and yet people are on here moaning about how we haven't spent any money. We don't have details on his new deal but it's probably roughly the financial equivalent of signing a 30m player!

 

City are signing Grealish and probably Kane for north of £200m, but they've given a new contract to De Bruyne and Fernandinho and are reported to be preparing new deals for Sterling, Ederson and Stones. So tell me more about the difficult choice between extending contracts and signing new players.

Let’s not mention the five important players who’ve two years left and the one that’s walked on a free and doesn’t look like he’ll be replaced.
 

The great bunch of lads handed out a new contract to Trent though so let’s all suck them off for another year.

 

To think some people actually think Rafa could work under these owners.

Tell us more about the City owners almost bottomless pit of money to throw at it. It's easy to do both when you're not self sufficient and reliant on usual business models.

 

Not sticking up for our owners but it's silly season to start comparing how they do business to how we (and other clubs) do.

Trade deadline for Boston Red Sox was yesterday and FSG were cheap. They needed a 1st baseman and a pitcher and got nothing. It doesn’t fill me with optimism for us.

Nobody cares

Baseball's shit

People often look at what FSG do with the Red Sox and think it's indicative of what they do with Liverpool.

Are there no parallels? They've been successful with both teams. But financially? Despite obvious differences in the respective sports... 

 

I like baseball, but haven't paid enough attention in recent years to offer an informed opinion.

Well comparing baseball to football financially is a bit useless but when people bring up the Red Sox it's either to make the point that they spend more money with them than they do at Liverpool or to say that they're cheap in both sports which just isn't right. So the whole conversation makes no sense and people play both sides.

 

If you look at facts, the Red Sox have paid the luxury tax in 10 seasons since they've owned them, which is the 2nd most of any team. And then with us, we have one of the highest wage bills in the world. But obviously, those numbers are all fake and they're tight cunts, so there's no point.

Haven't you been reading, mate? Wage bills don't count, that's fake news. We haven't paid out huge fees, ergo Liverpool are skint.
