  1. What will oil rich owners give them that they don't have already? They've matched City in spending on both player fees and wages during these barren years, and still have the financial capacity to do so. It's not about the money here, it's incompetence. The only reason we have been able to overtake them is to have more capable people in charge of the football side.
  2. How is debt a problem for a club that has spent 700m net since 2013? A lack of long-term planning in managerial appointments and player signings has been their undoing in terms of results on the pitch, not debt.

    Premier League Round Up (Jan 18-22 2020)

    In tears, as usual
  4. Hope they find new ways to expand eventually. 60k is nowhere near enough to meet demand. The Norwegian supporters club alone has more than 50k members...

    Sterling / Gomez - 'clash'

    No it's not, people would've found an excuse to hate him nonetheless, especially since it was City. I worshipped Xabi Alonso like a god, but his exit was much less dramatic because Rafa wanted him out. so he didn't need to kick up a fuss to get the move he wanted. Sterling obviously felt he needed to. I'm not defending that. I'm just pointing out that you can't be surprised that players react when they've been completely dehumanized by the watching public, up to a point where it's deemd alright to shout absolutely anything you want at him.

    Sterling / Gomez - 'clash'

    Where has he claimed that? And what has he done to piss you off so much, BTW? And I'm not specifically talking about Sterling here, it's the wider issue. We had Evertonians singing "the baby's not yours". I saw a video recently of someone mocking a Celtic player for his sister dying. Have you ever stopped to consider what type of society you live in where stuff like this gets shrugged off after a couple of minutes of click-baiting outrage? I know it's rich for me to sit up in happy, cozy Norway and preach about this, but I've always found it quite shocking to see the level of hatred that British people can generate about their neighbours.

    Sterling / Gomez - 'clash'

    Irrespective of all the talk about spin, England (and of course other countries) has a big issue with hateful abuse at football matches. We all accept it as "part of the game" and we don't want to "ruin the atmosphere and the passion", but you can't dismiss the effect it has on people, even if they earn bucket loads of cash to compensate for it. Of course we would see it as unfair that this game was used as an occasion to spark a wider debate on the subject. But I can't see how it would be so bad if people going to football matches considered if they would let their kids hear what they were shouting at opposition players. And I have no doubt that some of the worst idiots learned to behave that way from their parents. That's all from the peace-loving, tree-hugging Norgie. P.S. Football fans really need to get over this notion of players having to remain at a club until they retire or the club decides you're not worth having around anymore. People switch jobs for different reasons, including more money, all the time, why should football be different? And Raheem wasn't even a badge-kisser. World class footballers can og wherever they please. Its the job of the people running Liverpool Football Club to make it a sufficiently attractive proposition to stay, and they've finally nailed it.

    Jan Kromkamp at RB never looked right. Proper full backs are wee, quick lads who get bullied in the air. Period.
  10. I was completely the same with Prison Break...but I managed to finally cut that shit loose after s4 or something

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    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.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I have complete faith in the judgement of LFC's owners and management on pretty much all matters. And that feels great after the two decades that preceded them.
