    Slicker, well oiled version of Mike Ashley is not necessarily a bad thing?

    Reports in tabloids this morning saying FSG are right behind klopp. More likely they don’t want to pay him off.

    From no money to spend to transfer deadline offers to promising to back Klopp in the next transfer window.  :rolleyes:

    I understand your skepticism however they've had investment Redbird capital, so money is there now. The fans are unhappy, but I'd expect sponsors will be equally unhappy at the regression this season, so there is a need to placate them too.
    Much as Rosco would like to see Klopp go - there isn't anyone better.

    Just looking at this latest transfer window alone, did we really need 20+ days to find the money to bid for Caleta-Car? If Matip hadn't suffered his latest (& long term) injury, I'm quite sure we won't even see Kabak and/or Davies.




    Edit:

    https://www.anfieldwatch.co.uk/excl...-on-haaland-mbappe-outgoings-vvd-return-more/
    Article: Did Liverpool make a genuine mistake in the January transfer market by not acting sooner?

    Without doubt. My information is that they weren’t going to sign a centre-back at all until Joel Matip suffered his injury at Tottenham, which means that if he’d have lasted just a few days longer before picking up that problem then Liverpool would have spent some of the run-in using a partnership of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams. How is it possible that Matip was expected to get to the end of the campaign given his injury record? And why wasn’t a top-class centre-half sought earlier on to give this squad a chance of a top-four finish?

    Duje Caleta-Car didn’t end up at Anfield because Marseille didn’t feel they had enough time to source a replacement, and that meant Liverpool settling on Ozan Kabak who, while talented, was a 20-year-old coming in from a struggling team with huge expectations on his shoulders. For a club that prides itself on its planning, that’s pretty poor.

    They didn’t sell those shares to increase their capital. They sold shares that they personally owned, so the money will line their pockets.

    I'm glad they're finally getting some negative press. They deserve it.

    I'm grateful for all the good stuff they've done - not so quick to forget that we've had an amazing couple of years - but it's beyond frustrating to watch the first real championship team we've had in ages collapse due to mismanagement.

    More likely that they realise that they haven't backed him like they should have done and are going to do so.

    You don't get rid of a manager you have been chasing for years and know is perfect and key to the way you want your club to play/run etc.

    Maybe so, from the standpoint of Redbird Capital, they'd like to see success on the pitch as it drives up the value of the club. Everyone from sponsors, fans and investors know Klopp cannot be blamed for the way this season has gone. Failure to invest in the squad and at crucial times has regressed the club.

    What would be ideal for me is if the owners took the heat off Klopp by coming out publicly & saying that they should have backed him in the summer & they were at fault for not doing so.

    They're fight-fisted, we all know this.

    But I do think we have some intelligent guys at the helm.

    The likes of Edwards will know, if he wants continued praise, we need a mini squad overhaul.

    4 or 5 out. 4 or 5 in.

    Yep this what has annoyed me the most, Klopp has made mistakes but has been there fronting it every press conference.
    Yet John Henry and Co are happy to tweet when winning but they been quiet as anything over the last 6 months and that doesn’t include the transfer spend.
    It truelly is a lonely life for Klopp without fans in stadium.

    All in the effort to add more value to the club for when it comes to off loading it...
    Where is the backing for the manager to bring in players...
    Sounds  Mick Ashley'ish to me

    All so notice in the football gossip that they are saying that Liverpool will make an appoach for Kylian Mbappe should Salah leave the club...

    My view on that is they will give Klopp the money, and as M'bappe may cost what we get for Salah (I believe he will cost more) we will not be getting him

    Or if we somehow manage to secure the same money as M'bappe will cost we will only be able to bring in other player by selling The Ox, Origi Shaqiri and anyone else that we may get a couple of pound for.

    Kabak, Philips, Davis, and Willaims by defualt (on going injuries to Matip and Gomez) will be our main starting CB next season along side VVD

    So Mike Ashley for you connotes someone who makes investments hoping to profit on them? Fuck, I'm Mike Ashley too.

    Mike Ashley has been shit at his job, and not spent well, and got his club relegated repeatedly. He's not supported great managers, then appointed useless ones, then given them millions. He's a spectacular failure and universally reviled by supporters.

    Fsg are running a club quite well, and reinvesting profits. They aren't going to bankroll the club in the manner of other vanity owners.

    They are certainly not beyond criticism by any means and what they did last year especially was incredibly conservative. But all of their major investments were bleeding, and it was just horrible timing. It's a world historical moment though.
