It's January and we've got owners that have fans accepting a season wrote off already. 

 

One that should have been a one horse race cause the whole league is shite. 

We've had multiple bad luck with injuries with probably the most important pound for pound player in the league out for the season. We've been robbed of 4 points from bad decisions. We've had several of our players get Covid and their form since is dodgy. No crowds at Anfield. 6 or 7 points can be chased down but I don't see it being this year. Next season we will still have a very good team and I'll enter it with hope. 

 

It happens. United lost Keane for a season and that was the year Arsenal won the double. He was their best player at the time. The following year they won the treble.

 

FSG have done a lot of good things and more than some sketchy things. They are on the pigs back with a manager like Jurgen who can build a top team for relatively little. I think their exit strategy is to get out of dodge before he leaves because they won't want to invest the kind of money that other top managers would need and right now we are one of the most valuable brands in the world.

How many transfer windows have we done little to no business since FSG have been in charge. By little I mean they've signed a youth player or some insanely cheap squad fodder because it was a bargain on Craigslist.

I wonder if the Emperor Honorius watching the Visigoths coming over the seventh hill truly realized that the Roman Empire was about to fall. This is just another page in history, isn't it? Will this be the end of our brief tenure at the top. Turn the page.

We bought Van Den Berg off some Dutch fella who ran the British Heart Foundation shop in Huyton Village.

We're now really, really at risk of missing the top 4. If the owners are shitting themselves at the prospect of a reduced TV deal, they should consider the prospect of no Champions League money. 

 

Nobody is expecting a Koulibaly or a Upacampo, but to not bring A centre half is a complete failure of ownership. And they think they can get away with it because there's no fans in the ground to call them out on penny pinching.

What fucks me off about them even more is the way they scrimp on everything but whenever there's the prospect of a super league, an opportunity to get the top 6 clubs more TV cash or forming an alliance with other clubs to moan about Chelsea or Man City bending the rules they are always at the front of the queue. 

 

Anyone would think that they are only arsed about money...

It really is ludicrous, we went into the season with one less CB and we've ended up rotating midfielders and a part-time CB at best (Matip). It's hardly surprising we're struggling. The summer of 2019 after a CL win and not strengthing still pisses me off. Fair or not, I still can't avoid the conclusion that FSG view the additional investment to turn us into a dominant and persistent force as simply not being worth the return.

Being one of the first to rush to furlough staff last year really revealed their true nature.

The Fabinho at 4th CB thing looks stupid now, but it's taken every CB and multiple midfielders we've had get injured for long periods, so to me, you can't be too critical about the summer. I don't think anything we did at that time can be equated to standing still. It's just been kind of weird. It's a squad building strategy that's fallen flat on its face. Whatever. 

 

The baffling thing has been not responding to a crisis that has been developing over months. Not getting a CB now makes no sense. 

It makes perfect sense if you don't actually give a fuck about winning. and i bet you 100% there's a spreadsheet that is telling them what percentage chance there is of finishing top 4, how much cash we lose if we don't make it and it will be dictating if there's a signing. I expect the spreadsheet is telling them we have a really high chance of finishing top 4, because we have been unlucky and not bad form - xG over these 70-odd shots was 6 or whatever. top 4 is good enough for them. i don't really understand why everyone struggles with this. If we sign someone now, it is because they're afraid of not finishing top 4. if they were worried about the league, we'd have had lads through the door on Jan 1.

Clubs shown its true colours this season. If they can't be arsed why should we be? 

because the problem for us is we were sucked in when football was still a sport and not a TV show to make money for billionaires. my daughter likes the footy, but I keep her at arms length so she doesn't get the bug and luckily it seems to be working.

I don't blame FSG for not signing a stop gap, this could well be Klopp's choice or at least not his preference.  Williams and Phillips would be considered stop gaps.  We need better.

I do blame the tight fisted cheap bastards for presumably not sanctioning a move for our first (or second) choice.  There must be a first (or second) choice, they can't have thought medium-long term that we'd be okay with just VVD, Gomez and Matip.

Same as it ever was with this lot. Go fuck yourselves FSG.

Williams and Philipps are not stop gaps at all. Phillips wasn't supposed to be here. If Williams was available on the market, even at free, do you really think we would be trying to bring someone in who was playing at kidderminster last season? No chance - maybe they're bring him in if the youth levels needed bolstering. As for Phillips, even if he was free we wouldn't sign him. What proves they're not stop gaps is we have midfielders playing in front of them to the detriment of the midfield. Klopp doesn't want either of them near the pitch and the minute Thiago was available for selection in midfield, henderson was in the back 4.

Absolutely inevitable that between now and end of season Fabinho and Matip will be injured at same time.

 

Which plus all the other reasons already well documented like Phillips being championship at best level, Williams being at fucking Kidderminster last season etc etc - makes us doing fuck all about it all the more baffling and damaging to any hopes we have/had this season.

There is no point getting any with anyone at the club or anyone on here.

 

Nothing will ever change unfortunately.

 

The only thing we can do is hound them out like we did with our other American cancerous cunts.

and they would be replaced by another bunch of cunts. the sport is full of it now, it is just a business like any other.

Not necessarily, even though you're point is valid. Not all owners are cunts though.

Klopp pretty much put to bed the notion its him that doesn't want to buy. 

 

We have financial parameters, teeny weeny parameters. How do we have less of the old transfer budgie than half the sides in the league who have never won shit in decades if at all. 

 

It does wear thin being one of the two most successful sides in English football and one of the most successful on the European stage and yet we are still fucking paupers unless we sell a superstar.

You can still bring in players on loan. He's never really used the loan system at all during his entire time here. You can even offer loans in return to get loan players that you want.

 

e.g offer Origi (no jokes please) to a club that needs a striker (for example) that have defenders to loan us.

 

It's not rocket science and no excuses for not bringing in a centre back by now 22 days after the transfer window has been open.

Before this pandemic the stories from the mouthpiece journalists tended to go in this cycle -

 

  • we're the best at marketing the club, we are so clever we'll be past Man United in revenues soon (look at us we're rich)
  • we're the cleverest in the business, we buy smarter than anyone else (look at us, no matter how rich we are, we don't have to show it, because we're super clever)
  • we don't need any signings because of the planning the club do. this way there'll always be money when klopp wants it

 

this cycle would continue till around the time we got near a transfer window and the cycle would be tweaked:

 

  • we've just renewed some contracts because we're so rich, but right now money is tight because we've upped the wages of some players, it's important we don't lose our players. 
  • but don't worry, we're the cleverest in the business and we'll always buy when the time is right
  • we don't need any signing right now because it will block the path of the young players who klopp rates really highly.  

and now they don't even have to renew contracts, they just cry covid. but it is all the same, the cunts have never wanted to spend.

Surely there’s a Litmanen , Anelka even Fowler (2006) type loan player out there that gives the players the club and the fans a huge boost to kick on for the rest of the season ?

    • I have to agree. I’d like stats on every teams’ home performance this season. I suspect confidence is short in all teams at home, due to exactly that- no home advantage. Likewise, teams’ away form must surely have taken a turn upwards. We’ve lost most of our games in 2021, precisely because we’ve been at an empty Anfield more times than on the road. It must be a factor.
    • Last time I listen to Twitter over a player...   Got to be honest I hadn’t heard of him till we were linked with him but after reading and listening to everything about him I was expecting some sort of Xavi , Inesta type player who would dictate the pace and flow of every game with nobody able to lay a glove on him. What I’m seeing is a guy who struggles every game and more often that not is slow and ponderous on the ball and like the rest of the team looks a yard off the pace. As has been said maybe judge him next season but even last night we looked slightly better when he went off which admittedly isn’t saying much.
    • Yep.   I'd rather finish 10th and just reset in the League, if only with the current injured lads back.   See how Jota and Thiago go - with Virgil, Gomes/Matip (between the two of them, that's hopefully makes the "other" Henderson and Fabinho all fit again.   Almost like, forget this League season, and try and start again - the way we simply couldn't the minute VvD went down and others followed. (I know there was the Aston Villa result, but fuck that.)   Just start again with as many back as possible, fuck Europe completely, and see whether the nucleus of 19/20 can somehow climb the mountain again under Klopp.    FSG won't buy anyone, and let's just pray they don't sell anyone good.    
    • As shite as we were tonight against Chelsea I fail to see what the difference is between the handball given against Ryan Bertrand (Southampton v Wolves )  and the one not given against Kante.   Happens after 1 min 20   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0wMdolT4_a8&feature=onebox
