    Klopp's own words are "as weird as it sounds, we could not afford him" The reason he adds 'as weird as it sounds' is because he fucking knows it sounds absolutely ludicrous to suggest we couldn't afford him or another major signing.

    Chelsea (N) Super Cup Final 14/8

    Chelsea can be aggrieved that they haven't scored 2 or 3 in this half. Need to fucking get a grip of this.

    Ox is terrible up front. Midfield have been poor but we're effectively playing with no left side threat, so they have few outballs. Mane and Salah are being doubled up on and Ox is not even providing an output by being positionally sound. (I bet Ox smashes one in now haha...)

    It isn't if you totally disregard the hyper-inflation of transfer fees (and money in general) that has occurred in football between the two things you're comparing.

    It’s almost as if Liverpool think they are the only club who can bridge a 20 point gap by making good signings. kLoPp tRuSts iN HiS pLaYeRs. Funny that, we only really ever competed for the title once he bought three world class players (and a backup attacker) to fix glaring issues with our squad last summer. Other glaring issues still exist; you’d have to be delusional to think otherwise. A world class team can not rely on its academy for depth. News is that Sane could be out for months with an ACL injury picked up in a charity shield game. A reminder that long term injuries to great players can happen at any time. Right now, the fact is, we have a squad which cannot challenge on four fronts (because it’s a lesser squad than last year, and we didn’t then). The second fact is, our ability to challenge in the league is wholly reliant upon no serious injuries to our front three and full backs. It’s very understandable why fans would be pissed off at those two realities.

    I doubt any other english club would even try to get him if they knew we were submitting a bid to bring him back. Waste of time as there's no way he'd choose any of them over us. Not just because of the sentimental reasons, but because of the fact that we're one of the best sides in Europe.

    Get French Football News Breaking | Philippe Coutinho is joining Arsenal on loan from Barcelona, according to @BilelGhazi @GFFN 3m For context - @BilelGhazi was the first to report Neymar's desire to leave PSG & the club's willingness to sell him to Barcelona this summer. One of L'Équipe's lead transfer reporters.

    No need to patronize mate. I do know it, and I have a problem with it. I want the owners of my club to match our ambitions for the club. The question I'm asking is not 'please somebody show me the previous ten balance sheets to show me the math which means we cannot afford to a single first team player'. The question I'm asking is how, after what Klopp has done with relative pittance, do our owners not feel emboldened to finally make a notable investment into the club. Back their man, who they seemingly (and rightfully) trust wholeheartedly? The question is especially pertinent given John Henry was quick to walk around with a cigar in his mouth telling Sky Sports how he would 'invest this summer to make Liverpool Premier League champions'. Save us the bullshit.

    FSG are not shit

    Your second paragraph makes no sense. Nearly every top club in the world has had to deal with the same tournaments. They weren't organized on a whim over a bevvy - they have been planned for four years. Your third paragraph also makes no sense. If we end up fourth and without honors to boot, say bye to Salah or Mane or another top star. Rebuilding starts again, and we all know how difficult that is...it's all we ever seem to do as a club.

    How in the fuck can we have no money? As the 7th richest club in the world who have had a net spend of approximately fuck all under Klopp per season? When the fuck are the owners going to invest serious money? What can be inferred from our lack of business this year is that it means we will sell a big player next year in order to fund new purchases. Ergo, we will never have the strength in depth to challenge on numerous fronts continually. Ergo, we'll never see a 'dynasty' under these owners. You don't come across a Jurgen Klopp very often. We are very fortunate to have him here. There are strong possibilities he leaves in 3 years. This model will not be sustainable without a manager of his calibre and as the rest of Europe already knows...it's not easy to find one. Owners are getting off lightly in my opinion.

    Putting it mildly. We barely have a fist full of dollars.

    https://twitter.com/DaveOCKOP/status/1134397220818735104?s=20 He must have been anticipated us selling our best player again when he said this. They'll only 'invest' after selling our biggest assets.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    If he is played as an AM, he will be very good (and possibly brilliant) this season. If he is played on the wing, he'll be pretty poor.

    Bonkers to not buy a single first team player in this window.
