    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    They've had a few https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/atletico-madrid/rekordabgaenge/verein/13 De Paul could be the next one.

    Yep we just need another one.

    We already do. If not for COVID I'm pretty sure Salah or Mane would have gone last/this summer to fund the next crop. My point about Athletico was not their overall model but how they quickly recognise and act upon up and coming stars which they then sell later for him fees.r

    You never know mate, they might have something up their sleeve, the way they obviously had Konate earmarked.

    Ibrahima Konaté

    He looks a decent purchase.

    To be honest Dockers I don't think any sane Liverpool fan wants to be run like them, They are abhorrent. Just smarter business. I always look at Athletico Madrid and I'm always amazed at their savvy spending. Of course they sell their prized assets at times but they buy really well for the most part and seem to be able to identify potential stars and get them through the door. Id like us to go down that route of identifying the next Salah or Mane in the 30-50 million bracket. (taking inflation into consideration)

    Ha ha is this your other persona Scott? Have you signed up again? :D Ok I will address your points We are five league games in. Five. We don't usually have a problem beginning of the season. Our issues start post Christmas traditionally when we've had 3 months or so of busy fixtures and the players have been playing at a high tempo. Last season we were top of the league until injuries scuppered us. Then you have players that Jurgen quite clearly doesn't want and either uses sparingly in the league and for cup games. Keita, Ox, Origi and Minamino the four of which are the closest second/third tier to the first string. If you think Jurgen wouldn't want to have replacements for these you are wrong. Minamino looks the pick of the bunch for me but can't get anywhere near league matches. We've already had injuries to Milner, Thiago, Firmino and Elliot so far and we are only a month in. Hmm, yes this old chestnut. You do realise Covid only came into play from march last year? What about the previous seasons? Do you remember when Lucas got injured under FSG and we didn't replace him during a rocky patch? Or Sadio at the african nations when we unravelled? Or even the amazing 97 point season when we had a few makeshift options like Henderson right back in two draws that cost us the league against Leicester and West Ham because we had no fallback? Yeah you can argue it could be seen as nit picking but at elite level sport the margins are tiny. And then last year going into the season with three cbs, two of which are well known to have injury issues. We lost all three and then basically messed up Hendo and Fab playing them centre half, where both incidentally got injured again. We didn't do anything to address it when we could, lost the chance of another league title when we were in total control and relied on a goalkeeping header to scrape into the top four. Masterclass. We are prudent alright, no argument from me there. Go and look at the list of the top five wealthiest clubs in the world and tell me who is sitting in the top 5. Then tell me how you explain us crying poverty every window? Theres simply no excuse for not maximising our chances whilst we have the best coach in the world. FFS FSG could even loan the money for transfers and get it back when things have stabilised. But they won't because they are overly fiscal and put the interests of their stakeholders first and foremost against on pitch success. Top 4 and a minimum transfer spend every year is their sweet spot. Anything else is a bonus. And you hate fans like me huh? I watched Souness, Dalglish, Hansen, Rush, the 84 Euro and League winners, the Double winners and the all conquering 88 team, and followed them home and away in my teens. Telling people to go support Chelsea and City is the kind of argument you expect from someone with the capacity of a ten year old to make.

    Expanding Anfield using the cash reserves that could have been spent on the team. Hmm. I mean you have to admire them getting the Club to pay for its own expansion and then pocketing the benefits both whilst they are here and when they eventually leave.

    People seem to equate wanting a bit of quality depth to asking for the world. That post a page back was incredibly simplistic. For every point of good he made, you can counter it back with some negatives. And thats before you even get into their mistakes which he handily didn't mention. We should be able to spend like the supposed top 5 wealthiest teams in world football that we are. Not Mbappe or Ronaldo, but solid players that can come in and take positions from players that Klopp really doesn't fancy and push for a first team place. Couldn't give a damn how much money FSG make if they are concerned about on pitch matters, but you always get the sense from them, that minimum is quite enough and that if they can avoid spending, they will. You won't get any protests now, but you might when Jurgen leaves and we can't maintain our level.
  10. I see Ox and Keita both starting to live up to their billing already. Kicked the floor and came off. Unbelievable.

    Scott only deals in FACTS. Get that people and understand it. Or else.

    Hello McFly? Those players we have left have poor injury records. If OX and keita and Henderson can stay fit all year then great, no problem. But past experience shows they can't be overly relied on.
  15. id give Gordon and that (polish?) lad a go? Mateusz Musialowski?
