The PA news agency understands it is unlikely there will be further additions to the squad following the £36million arrival of centre-back Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.

Some people seem to misunderstand the difference between what the club is 'worth,' what turnover is and what profit is.

 

I'll keep saying it, people need to produce evidence of financial misappropriation within the club by the owners because just saying repeatedly they think something's 'wrong' just makes them sound like a flat earther saying the world's flat, not a globe (or oblate spheroid for the pedants).

 

Facts, evidence and not rumour or gut feeling.

 

 

Facts!!!!!!! Facts!!!!!!!!! you've just ruined this entire fucking thread

Barry, what do you mean a million miles from skint? Do you not believe the reported $46m loss or do you think we should be able to wear higher loss? Or is your real issue the articles posted in the echo?

I'm saying what you announce as profit and loss is only part of the story. We made 125m and 42m in the 2 year's before, but we weren't rich then either. They way players are bought, cash flow or P&L of 12 months ago isn't really relevant, it's what you're going to do going foward. And companies as profitable as LFC in non-pandemic situations would have no issue increasing their revolving credit if cashflow was an issue immediately. You seem to be suggesting we've only stopped spending since the pandemic, yet the cunts have been tight as fuck for pretty much their entire time here.

Mate, no football club is rich - most are a couple months away from bankruptcy.

Except that's simply not true. They've literally all just shown that through the pandemic when nobody has watched them for 18 month except in the odd case. So if you mean they stopped playing all together forever, well that's true, because it's a simple business model with every revenue stream linked to playing football - and if they unilaterally stopped playing they'd be kicked out of their league  . But most companies would go to shit if their revenue streams dried up and they stopped producing product. Football has just survived march 20-june20 without kicking a ball and that was in season. There was lots of moaning, but nobody in English footballs top flight got into shit, nobody. Not even close. Because the money was coming. If you have cashflow, people will lend. It's simple capitalism.

How do you pay it back - future revenues?

 

You are being incredibly myopic - the vast majority of "professional" clubs in England are in serious trouble that will affect them for years. 

In reality there are are a fair few big names that will feel the squeeze as well. Not sure it makes sense to comment on post Covid football fortunes until it actually is post Covid. The first league games are in three weeks - do you see those as open events?

Revisit this in a year or two.

I thought the redbird investment  wiped out the pandemic loss and meant we are where we should be pre covid or is it FSG are where they should be. We just got to be honest were poor but the good news could be last years shitshow reduces the bonus payments.

That redbird investment was in FSG and not directly Liverpool.

 

On wider issues, this idea of borrowing to fund purchases is really just another name for loading debt onto a club, whether that be arsenal, spurs or anyone else that does it.

 

It might simple capitalism to some but, the more desparate you are to borrow, the more the lender will want to extract in the form of higher interest and hence repayment costs.

 

And if you do borrow once to fund transfers, the shouters then say 'you've borrowed once, do it again this season. And next season and next.'

Liverpool could make millions after Real Madrid fans rave about former Reds winger - Liverpool Echo

The evidence for this is that at least one football club is circling the drain every couple of months, Swindon Town being the current example. People go on about football being a business, yet it's a strange kind of business where companies never merge or are bought out by rivals, and going out of existence is a once-a-generation event.

I see, so you think the numbers are right, but you don’t believe the stories posted by LFC journalists around that. I have no issues with that. It’s the suggestion that they’re fiddling with the numbers, inflating salary costs, hand-in-hand with the auditors, only so that internet fans don’t get angry when we don’t buy the players they want is what I find laughable and QAnon-esque.
 

Like you Barry, if it was up to me I’d rather if the club was a multibillionaire’s vanity project, not unlike City, who could just keep buying expensive flops until they find the right player. However I’m in my 30s and without a doubt, the best time I’ve had as a Liverpool supporter has been under their ownership. I don’t recall another Liverpool team having at least seven of the absolute very best players in for world in the squad (Salah, Mane, Alisson, Virgil, Trent, Robbo, and Thiago) so no, I don’t hate FSG as much as you do. If they can keep it up, I’m happy for them to stay.

I know we rightly mock The Echo, its a complete shadow of its former self, but IMO, that is actually a good news story.
