    And again, all this because we won't buy a shiny new expensive player just to keep some happy ?





    Just want us to carry on winning shiny trophies.

    Don't want to keep hoping and praying neither Mo, Bobby or Mane get busted for too long, as I don't see Big Div or Brewster to being the long term answer if we lose someone long term.


    Or a nice bit of creativity in the midfield for games when we need it.


    Not saying we spunk a boat load on a Bale or whoever.

    My point is, it seems we can't spend without selling our assets.


    We need to improve again on last season. We've been here before, or have you walked around blinkered for the last decade?



    Anyway, I'm off home then away for a nice break.


    Stay safe everyone.

    Can't get my head round that shit.  We're going into this season as European Champions, justifiably so too.

    How the fuck are we worse ?


    Yes we're champions of Europe.


    How many Champs league winners then don't go out and strengthen their side.


    We're at the optimum opportunity to really build on what we have. Yep, again, we don't really want to.

    Forget the being worse off shit, we're not building on anything then. Better?

    A bit, yes.  Squad strength is maybe slightly better and the age of all of our players bar Milner suggests that they should be capable of either improving or at least sustaining the same level of performance.  Plus they won't have that monkey of not winning anything on their backs. 


    Obviously I'd be happier with another attacker and full back to balance the squad better but overall we're better off than we have been since the late 80s so I'm feeling positive.  If it wasn't for the fact that we're competing with an oil-state with limitless resources I'd be as happy as a pig in shit.  

    Players improving. Yup, no problem.

    Last season is gone. History.


    But, we need to keep evolving. We don't need to rip it up and start again. 

    Just a tweek here or there.


    Not bothered about which team buys who. I'm bothered about that it looks like we can't out lay on quality, without selling first.

    Our actual outlay on players over the last few years isn't where a club of our standing should be.


    As of numerous occasions with us, we've the chance to really push on, yet we seem like we're happy standing still.


    I don't really understand how anyone can be that happy if we don't improve on what we have.

    Doesn't make sense.

    We made 125m pre tax.  We made 106m after tax.  In that 125m was 124m we made on profit on disposal of players registrations.  It’s not hard to guess what that is.  The amortisation of players registrations went up 20m.  It’s more difficult to say what that is as Virg will only have accounted for about a quarter of that you would guess.


    Without selling Coutinho we probably would have made a loss.  The numbers are there in black and white but it’s more than that.  We can’t afford to be buying 70m players every year.  Even more so because every time you spend big the cost goes up the next time.  You see it with United and City and even though they’ve got a lot more money than us they are both turning their noses up at the prices of players now.  You need to pick your moments and the club seem to feel like now isn’t the time.  I’m not saying we should never buy 70m players but doing it every year just isn’t sustainable.  We’ve spent a lot recently so they’re obviously stopping for a season to assess what’s going on.


    So, to buy quality, we have to sell quality. We've spent a lot because we sold big.


    How many times have we been here before.

    One or two quality signings makes us. Standing still doesn't.


    We're going into next season more depleted than we were last season, and that's without Mane's 13 month season, and that's also praying Mo or Bobby don't break down. And lets not forget the "industrious" midfield we have. Or short of cover at full back.


    It's crap. We should be buying AT LEAST one quality signing. You don't stand still.


    It's bollocks, and unfortunately we've been here before.

    Our competitors have strengthened, and we're sitting on our hands.

    I don't get Klopp's reluctance to spend. He shot down the Coutinho rumours yesterday on cost grounds. 

    He would have been a great option to have back imo. He had better get a full back in or I'll be sending a strongly worded letter to Melwood using a first class stamp.

    So you reckon that's 100% on the boss then, do you...........................


    Better get writing that letter then. Post it to FSG..............

  6. I'm the head of my department (materials buyer for a house builder).

    Fuck knows how. Just plain hard work and waiting for the right moment to come along.


    That said, been with this company 20 years, this year. Been head of the department for just over 4 years. Was a number 2 for the rest.


    Job keeps me up at night. Not the worrying anymore, but just constantly thinking over things.

    I've no idea how those in the real big jobs live with it.


    I suppose giving a toss is part of it.

    Had a drink just rambling so please forgive.  My cousin said his dad saw my dad on Wednesday.  They said there usual goodbye "see you when I see you" but then my dad shook his hand which he didn't normally do. His memory issues effected him but I think he knew.

    even 2 hours before death he could work out numbers in his head.



    A few of us used to go and see my mate at his hospice every Thursday from December last year, through to his death back in April.

    Everytime we used to leave him, he'd shake our hands and thank us for everything.

    I'd normally tell him to "........man the fuck up, and we'll see you next week".

    Last time we saw him, when we went to leave, he shook our hands and told us to shut the door on the way out, but as you say, almost like he knew......


    And apparently, on the morning of his death, he had breakfast with his wife and kids. When the female chief came around to see if he fancied anything else for breakfast, in front of everyone, he said, "yeah, I'd like a piece of you".

    Ten minutes later, he was dead.

  8. One of my best mates died yesterday, to this.

    He had 3 tumours removed from his brain, which they controlled then it got into his bones.


    Was in a hospice since xmas.

    Only 35. Leaves two kids, 8 & 5.


    Lost a cousin and then my mate, within the last 12 months.

    C*nt of a disease.

    And that Tottenham fan - how exactly did we get the "easiest draw again" when they got Dortmund and we got Bayern in the last round?

    I work with alot of them.

    Dortmund were top of the league when they first played them. They were better than Barca. Fact.
