    You're in luck then, because all our stars are now approaching the wrong age to bring in Coutinho money (excluding Trent who is untouchable), so we'll see how £30m competes against £200m transfer windows without that one-off boost that Barca gave us. I shouldn't have to say this, but I'm not expecting us to spend city money, either. It was Tom Werner who said we could compete for any player in the world, not me.

    We'll see what happens next season. What we did over 2 years, no one has ever done over 3, and city as champions were nowhere near where they'd been either.

    I sort of agree here. We did assemble a great group of players, and I never thought we'd win the league again in my lifetime, and that's also now my biggest fear - we're resting on our laurels. We've done the stupidly difficult bit, and this will all fall away over the next couple of years. Klopp said he's here til '24, so we should be maximising this run, because when he leaves we're back to fighting for top 4.

    FSG are cruising but it's perfectly acceptable to think that doesn't have a negative affect on the team if that's what you think. I completely think they're holding us back, but I don't have 3billion to put my money where my mouth is.

    I gave an opinion. On a forum of all places, and now you're mortally offended. OK dude. Nothing is wrong at all, and we'll cruise the league again next season.

    If I wanted to do that, I'd do that, and you're definitely better than posting this kind of shit, at least I thought you were.

    I didn't do that at all, but when Ronnie Moran used to tell players what they'd won was in the past, every pre-season, was he just dismissing them, too? I actually said nothing about our achievements, only what needed to happen moving forward. we can't keep running the same group of players into their 30's and expect things to just work themselves out.

    No, I obviously don't, but this is where geography discussions on the ff gets us!

    You're arguing against things I didn't say.

    So I'll reinstate Henderson.

    I see some merit in this argument, but our team is just so set up in blocks these days, that unless we get players to break them, then we're a couple of seasons away from being in the kind of trouble that £20m net each season won't get close to fixing. We're not even in for the best strikers either, so what does that tell both of us?

    So you're agreeing with me on that bit? Good job we avoid him then. Who wants that caliber of player for either 10 years, or 5 years and a ridiculous fee? Why win twice when we can be happy with excuses instead?

    And yet we've finished above them once in 3 years. Not really sure I'd call that being in our wake, but we're all different.

    Neither was Liverpool to Henderson if we want to play these pedantic games.

    Unfortunately we'll be trotting out Firmino, Mo, Sadio most games. We play a midfield 3 that doesn't get forward or carry the ball, we have a wide 2 that don't really have that in their games, and Firmino should be moved on to the bench or replaced. Sancho would be RF's replacement for me, with mo moving inside but having licence to roam. In order to keep up with city, we had to play last 10 games run-in footie for whole seasons, and we desperately need some creativity and pace in there.

    Have no reason to believe an English kid coming home and playing in a successful team would want to uproot again in a few years, unless he ended up in average squad. Either way, if he was the latest Real/Barca/PSG vanity product, we'd be getting more than our money back.

    Sancho is on a different level imo, and it'll be obvious when he's playing for the cunts next season. Has the potential to be one of the top 2 or 3 in the world when he hits his peak in a few years time. Absolute stunning lack of foresight, ambition, and planning by us, but that's par.
  18. Horus

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    You get Sancho if you've got a chance. If we don't get a couple of players who can carry the ball through the lines and commit defenders, then things are going to be grim next season. A signing that would likely see out the best years of is career here should be a no-brainer, but seems we've had a taste and now FSG think they've got another 30 years in the bank for us to win the odd cup. After the shit they pulled a couple of months ago, the fact they have the easiest lives of any owners is fucking laughable.

    Redball Liverpool

    This FSG/Beane stuff is suspicious. Beane wanted a football club, but if he'd have bought a percentage of the club, then there would have been public expectations that the money was invested back in us, either through stadium or players, but as they're going the percentage of FSG route, it gets them to the same place but no one will be asking why that money isn't going back into us.

    Roy Hodgson, know your role and shut your mouth

    He wouldn't have wanted to offend the great man, sir alex. He was too busy doffing his cap constantly, to worry about results.

    Palace offering £19m + £6m is peak subliminal bidding.

    Diogo Jota

    I'm glad we've signed the guy for a position we were lacking in, but around the Werner fee just makes everything that's happened before a little more baffling to me. 7 in 34 for Wolves. Fingers crossed, and better than what we have.
