    We have been rebuilt from de facto bankruptcy to champions of Europe in under ten years, turning healthy profits, paying world record fees for top players, enjoying our best league campaign ever, playing fantastically entertaining football for the most part, expanding Anfield, building a great new training complex, and still managed to play by the rules and remain FFP compliant. It's a bloody marvellous feat by FSG, and if they are solely driven by financial gain, then I hope for our sake that never changes.

    We are now properly talking about what we need to win the league and retain the European Cup. We're now genuinely back at that top level. We go into the season with achievable goals of a level we've probably not had since summer 1984. I'd rather we had spent a bit and got in proper forward cover as we are light there. I'd have liked to have seen a really good creator for the middle of the park too. And a decent back up goalie. But that's very much easily said, but very hard to do. I trust Klopp more than I've trusted any manager since probably Rafa. I believe that if he wanted someone then the club would do their best to get him. I also believe that given how good we've been at transfers over the last few years, that the effort from the club would be genuine and thorough. So in that way I'm happy enough to see what happens. And if we don't sign a first team level player then, while I'll still be concerned about what we do when Salah, Firmino or Mane get injured (and it is when, not if), I'm still happy to trust in the club. However, I don't get people having a go at folk who are concerned. People calling it "cry arsing" because fans are nervous of what happens if those injuries to our top 3 come at the same time or are long term are out of order in my opinion. We've seen this moaning at fans who are concerned before. And it's usually followed by a big drop off the season after a good season such as 2008/09 or 2013/14. We made an art of adding top talent and bringing them into the team after a great year. After doing the treble in 1984 we signed Molby from Ajax. We all know the talent we brought in after finishing second in 1986/87 season. After that amazing season we brought Rush back. Sitting on your laurels can be dangerous. So if you are having a go at folk for being nervous with no signings, then stop it. They're allowed. Laughing it off or calling them names just shows your ignorance. Also, if you are justifying no signings by saying "We've just won the European Cup for goods sake" then please jump off a high building. That was last season. It's done now. Ronnie Moran would be spinning in his grave at comments like that.

    Yeah we just have to let a player know we're interested and they'll walk over broken glass to sign for us, wont they? So how come that lad at Bristol City decided he'd rather sign for Bournemouth (not disrespect to Eddie Howe and his club) than us? Transfers dont work like fans expect. People moan the 'drop off' after Mo, Sadio and Bobby up front, pointing to Origi and young Brewster who, may be the new Robbie Fowler. Oh, Werner's class, sign him to give the front 3 a rest. Except the quality of Werner wont sign for Liverpool to give Mo, Sadio and Bobby rests during the season. He wants to plough his own furrow and play every game. Oh we need cover for Andy at left back. Let's sign anyone as cover. What, another Moreno who everyone can blame for every goal we conceed when he's playing? That argument is a dead end, it is one Klopp threw out when the van Dijk transfer first went tits up and it seemed almost everyone wanted him to 'just sign any CB' instead. No, Jurgen's shown he's not splashing the cash unless he gets the player he wants who will strengthen the team. please, let's not go back to this nonesense of 'just sign any' left back \ cover for the front 3 \ any other position. Am I concerned city are signing people? What's changed, they always sign players whether they need them or not. They can afford to, people dont want us to be like city but say we have to buy to 'keep up.' No, we really dont. Jurgen has shown he can run city very close and stay legit. He might not be able to win 19 for us because as Ive said since he came here, city with their spending, will always be his biggest obstacle to winning the title. Am I concerned we havent signed any big players? Not really. I might be misguided but I trust Jurgen. Im not expecting us to win the title either given the fact it looks like we'll be in this FIFA World Club Cup and that alone will cause any club difficulty in the PL. There's also about 15 PL clubs who will roll over again for city but put up a better fight against us, everton anyone?

    Hearing Manchester United will launch a triple transfer assault for the Bournemouth defender, Adam Lallana and a former England goalkeeper. I’m told the dossier drawn up by the club is called ‘Ake Breaky Hart’.

    Alright let's do it. 7 it is. Ligue 1 is "la ligue des talents" but I get the need for conciseness. Also, if they have YS next to their names in the list, it means they qualify as young studs according to my own definition. Finally, Mbappé is not included as he's too obvious and number 4 may in fact shock you, it's a bit of a controversial call. 7. Ismaila Sarr, Forward, Rennes (YS) Quick as shit. The kids would say he's a Mané "regen" because he's from Senegal but he's a different player. A bit more direct, a bit less unpredictable. Just pure pace and his gait is long as fuck. He'd be a great alternative to our front three as he can play all 3 forward positions, although he'd have a lot to learn. Watford are in for him, apparently. He'll be a danger. 6. Rafael Leao, Forward, Lille (YS) He's a really talented and complete forward already. He's big and fast (stud qualities), can run in behind and his touch is decent. We won't buy him because it seems the club trust Origi and Brewster, but this kid is up next, man. He can flat out play ball. 5. Thiago Mendes, Midfielder, Lyon We won't sign him either because he's 27 and just signed for Lyon, but he's a really dynamic and also intelligent midfielder. He's mobile, has good technique, can play multiple positions. I think he could play for anyone in the world, frankly. One of the most underrated players out there. 4. Houssem Aouar, Midfielder, Lyon (YS) I'm not as big on him as I once was, which is why I picked a small photo of him. Still has young stud technique and vision, but the physicality aspect is not there yet which means he can disappear at times and I think his positioning is a bit unclear. I don't know if he would be an ideal fit for our midfield but the potential is there. 3. William Saliba, Centre Back, St-Étienne (YS) Arsenal will sign him which is a shame because this kid is a tower of power at just 18 goddamn years of age. He's a tank, no doubt got all the pussy in high school. 2. Youcef Atal, Right Back, Nice I'm huge on this kid. He's freakishly talented. Right back, but to be honest, he could play anywhere except centre half and striker. He'd be a plus for any team. His dribbling, close control and acceleration are absolutely sickening. Genuinely, it makes me sick that someone could be that talented at carrying a football. 1. Nicolas Pépé, Forward, Lille Everyone knows I think this guy is the one. It's absurd how closely he fits the Mané and Salah mould of lightning quick wide forward who scores loads of goals. I will fucking hate it if we don't sign him. Fucking hate it.

    Thank you Mr Hedge Fund, sir, for seeing a gift of an investment opportunity and saving us. *doffs cap* Said it before and I’ll say it again. While their interests and ours align, fine. But trust them - nah. As a football fan you’d be stupid to trust any owner these days.

    No point talking about city in some ways, they've got an outstanding squad and anything they buy at the moment is to bring some depth in the position they have and allow for some continuity as the some of their players are getting the wrong side of 30. It's pretty fair to assume though, they've made par high 90s points and I see no reason why they won't go there again, so unless you're happy not challenging for the league, high 90s is the target. I don't care about any of those behind us right now. I think your assesment makes their changes appear in the most negative light you could paint them. But as far as I'm concerned, they're not city's business, so they shouldn't be ours. None of those sides will beat 90 points. So what it all comes down to for me, is what we can do. Can we be as competitive on the league as last year? Well a simplistic view is yes as we've held together the first XI. However, there are more factors. Our forwards have only just stopped playing. They will likely struggle early on. We had that issue to some extent last year, but sturridge started the season well and was able to do his only work during that spell. This year we're to rely on someone who's never played 1st team football or origi. We've also lost cover at left back. I'm not arsed Moreno is gone, we should have shifted him years before, but why shouldn't we replace him in the squad? Then there's the fixture list. We're guaranteed to play 50 matches this season if we don't win 1 cup game. That's harder than last year, with a slightly thinner and more tired squad. Then what if we actually managed to win some domestic cup games? That's more pressure on the squad right there. For me the squad at best is the same as last year, but with the impact of the summer on our forwards and letting sturridge go, I think we're a bit behind. And the season is going to be tougher. And now we're European champions, maybe more of a scalp and games getting more difficult. So here's the thing for me. If you're happy with something in the top 4 and if things our way a decent CL run, then not adding to the squad I think is fine. If we've any real aspirations of winning the league, we should add to the squad. Personally I think we're settling for the former.

    Preparation for no deal is costing the state £6bn. Johnson’a proposed tax cut is going to cost the state £10bn a year. The UK is pretty fucking rich. Some people just want to spread the wealth more evenly.

    From the Echo today One thing that's important to note here is that the club have had multiple targets and deadlines to meet over the stadium in the past - and have hit every single one up to this point. So, things could all get very exciting in the next few months or so - even more than they already are! On the subject of funding The answer to this still isn't known as of yet. Everton are in the process of exploring a number of funding options for the proposed stadium. Well I plan to win the lottery on Tuesday, well to be precise the Euromillions. It's 32 million and I have multiple targets as to what to do with the money once it's in my bank. I've picked the cars and houses for the family. It's important to note that I have met every deadline, I went to the shop and managed to purchase a ticket. I even have a lovely hand drawn pic of my new sports car. About now I'm guessing you're pretty envious. I bet that looks better than your car, and it goes much faster too. So, things could get all get very exciting in the next few weeks or so - even more than they already are.

    Isn’t this the thread for laughing when they do classically small-time and embarrassing shit, rather than petty sounding perma-commentary trying to put a negative slant on even the likes of them buying a highly-rated young striker? Uncharacteristically positive move for them, that. No need to grasp at straws or stoop to their level, they’ll self-destruct spectacularly like always having boasted and that’s when the fun happens.

    I'd happily see Corbyn replaced by someone else on the left. Someone without the baggage. A better orator, a better politician in general. However, the paucity of possible replacements, and the fact that, as moof says, absolutely anyone to the left of Jo Swinson is going to get the "terrorist sympathising communist" routine if they have the temerity to want to see the end of nurses going to foodbanks and us murdering shepherds in the Middle east. If it was someone like Starmer he'd have to convince the membership that he would push for left wing policies. I don't know if he could. The n*rr*tive has to continue to be challenged. We can't allow Rupert Murdoch and his ilk, and in fact the wets at the Guardian, to continue to dictate what is or isn't acceptable politically or economically.
