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.'

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.

    • Saturday evening sees the Reds travel to West London to take on Brentford. It has been 32 years since the two teams met in a competitive fixture which was in the sixth round of the FA Cup and Liverpool won 4-0. And you have to go all the way back to 1947 for the last league fixture which adds a special sense of occasion to this encounter.     Thomas Frank’s side have looked anything but overawed by making the big step up to the Premier League  so far and their fans are bound to be in fine voice at Brentford Community stadium.   Dave Lane from @Beesotted Brentford gave TLW an insight into their unerring belief and how a Liverpool academy graduate has turned into a Bees fan favourite.   It is always good talking to fans of clubs who haven’t been in the top flight for a long period of time and learning about their journey. Can you talk a little bit about the ups and downs of your journey as a Brentford fan and what the moment felt like when you were finally promoted to the top flight after 74 years and that first Premier League game against Arsenal?   Getting promoted at Wembley was one of the most euphoric and surreal moments in out Brentford supporting lives… after so many failed play-off attempts there was a part of us all that never believed we’d witness it. That’s all behind us now, but it will never be forgotten. The build up to the game against Arsenal was amazing too, maybe more of an event than a match, but to be back in the stadium with our mates, and surrounded my likeminded Bees, was special… so was the atmosphere and result. It has given us belief and we know we aren’t out of our depth at this level.     Can you tell our readers about Thomas Frank. To a outsider he looks like a typical new age manager with clear methods and Football philosophy as well as a figure who can connect to fans and players alike How is he viewed by the Bees fanbase?   Thomas Frank is the perfect fit for Brentford and such a nice guy too. He’s certainly not an old school football manager and his relationship with the players shows how much they respect him, the perfect man for a young and promising set of pros, he keeps them grounded and focussed, as well as believing in them when things aren’t always going to plan. Frank has had his doubters, even as recently as last season, and he’s only ever a couple of defeats away from that element to start sharpening the knives again. Frank is the club’s most successful post war manager and the vast majority of supporters hope he’s at Brentford for many years to come.   Quite often new sides to the Premier League find the step up in standard quite daunting and the defence is extremely overworked. However for the Bees it has been remarkably resolute with three clean sheets from five games. Who are the key players behind that impressive statistic?   You’re right, so far we have been solid and well marshalled at the back, Pontus Jansson and Kristoffer Ajer in particular have been immense. Sergi Canos, although not a ‘natural’ right-back has risen to the challenge, and Rico Henry is, in my view, England standard at left-back. David Raya in goal has ironed out the more erratic edge to his play and is a proper sweeper-keeper with excellent distribution and reactions.     One of the longer-term members of the Brentford squad is a former Liverpool academy graduate in Sergi Canos. How important has he been to your progress over the years?   Sergi is another perfect fit at Brentford and as previously mentioned has stepped up this season and relished his chance in the top flight. After his initial loan period from Liverpool, he chose to move to Norwich, but he was soon back in West London where he has cemented a place as a modern club legend. He spent a long time out injured with a knee ligament injury and there were question marks as to whether he’d fully recover his speed, but his versatility and infectious enthusiasm are pivotal in the system we play. He loves Brentford as much as Brentford loves him.   We know that London is a crowded market for Premier League football teams. Is there one particular team that Brentford fans would love to beat or are they all in the enemy camp?   This season’s all about establishing our place at the top table and we will take our wins anywhere and against anyone, however, I’d be a liar if I didn’t want us to beat Chelsea as West London bragging rights over them would be immense. Without Fulham and QPR in the same division, though, a win is a win this campaign at least.     We touched on the clash against the Gunners at the beginning, how much are the fans looking forward to taking on one of Europe’s elite teams on Saturday evening?   Liverpool coming to Brentford is one of the jewels of the fixture list plain and simple. The players will want to prove themselves and the fans will want to savour every moment. Liverpool fans will be welcome in all our pubs and it should be a great afternoon on and off the pitch. Can’t wait!   Is there one Liverpool player that you admire the most?   Liverpool are a class act, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, van Dijk, Diogo Jota, are all world class, and there’s a player in every position that will push us to the limit. But that’s why we are here, to test ourselves against the best. You’ll have plenty to contend with too.   How do you think your manager will set up the team for the big clash and who is the Brentford player that needs to lead from the front to claim a result?    Thomas Frank won’t change things at all in my view, we play our 3/5 at the back football the same whoever the opposition and we will go toe to toe, which may not work out in our favour after 90 minutes, but that’s our mindset. We will create big chances, but we have to take them when they come our way.   Have you got a score prediction?   My head says 3-1 Liverpool, my heart says 2-1 Brentford. I'll go with my heart every time! COYB.

    • Ah, okay, when you called me a liar multiple times for saying that people were calling Starmer a Tory, that was what confused me.   So what we have instead is a disagreement over why people are calling Starmer a Tory. You have decided, apropos of nothing, that it's because of one small portion of his essay, whereas I assert that it relates to the thing taken as a whole and/or a different bit, which I have specifically seen people refer to.   If you want to talk about lies, let's start with the claim that anyone has said that the purpose of government is to support private businesses rather than people.
