    FSG is that nice responsible guy who wants to do the best for his gal.

    Alas we are a very hungry whore, in a world full of very very bad boys, with big shiny toy.

    On the other hand, to comment on your last idea about loaning, players are also much cheaper now and some on sale, due to financial situations in football due to corona.

    I think players might be cheap if you look at overall transfer monies but clubs that are cash poor want money now which we don't have. I remember reading last summer that one of the reasons we zeroed in one Jota is they agreed to a favorable payment schedule. It looks like our attacking targets were Bowen, Barnes, Sarr - all three clubs aren't that desperate and even if they agree to sell would want cash upfront. The other target was Doku at Rennes which I think is the second most financially stable club in Ligue 1 due to the owner.

    He certainly had some patches of top form, but for a player at his level, like world class level, he was far too inconsistent, ultimately it was a disappointing season for him I thought. Still, it was his first season and a difficult one at that with the injuries and team situation, so no writing him off or anything silly like that, just hoping we see more from him this season much more consistently, and if we do, I don't think too many people will miss Gini.

    We are the wife who has been given everything she wanted, has a lovely life but are watching some single neighbours with new sugar daddies getting bought flash cars and handbags thinking it will make us happy if we got the same.

    Unfortunately that just means we are shallow football 'fans'

    I think it’s a bit of both.

    Winning means you can admonish any manner of moral, ethical or financial misdemeanours.

    Not winning means you have to cling to some sort of moral high ground as an explanation.

    Unless you’re a Man Utd - that’s when you’ve got to come to terms with the fact you spent 20 years under Ferguson selling your soul to the devil to such an extent the devil isn’t interested anymore - so you can keep selling your soul for evermore without getting any returns - because you’re eternally damned.

    Might as well call yourself the Red Devils.

    Ahhhhhhh....

    I believe that the money FSG would demand for LFC, you would only get the type of owners that are willing to invest in the squad and really look for success both on and off the field...

    I think you’re only partly right.

    Anyone spending what FSG would demand for a sale and willing to fund transfer levels comparable to the top spending teams in order to get success would absolutely have to have no desire whatsoever to get any direct profitable return on that investment.

    That sort of buyer would have an ulterior motivation for buying - not necessarily sinister -  but certainly would raise questions.

    The list of billionaires who could buy liverpool and pump millions in transfer funds is small. ME sovereign funds may buy the club to promote their state for tourism or investments. I am pretty sure Messi is having to do more corporate gigs than ever before. If the Sauds do buy Liverpool, then it will be used to show the Kingdom in a good light.
    The other option is they float the club taking it public.

    Would floating and taking the club public work?

    Yeah - Saudi or maybe further east.

    Neither would be clean.

    Either that or hope Jeff Bezos gets bored with rockets.

    I like how you think Jeff Bezos is 'clean'

    Okay, he might not have beheaded any journalists (that we know of), but...

    He’d get our players playing in 3 games a day with no toilet or drink breaks. He’d pay them minimum wage and force them onto tax credits to top up their income.

    I don’t think he’s clean - but criticising him will trigger a certain person who likes graphs and certain ex-US Presidents.

    His bots are watching us...

    He’s best kept out of the FF - for all our sakes.

    He saw this because he thought the Catholic church has wider avenue of opportunities.

    Can someone explain to me why the internet is littered with such boring utter shite articles on our team ? - yes I get the clickbait bollox and the fact that it knows I am interested in LFC news. But why the fuck does the Echo keep going on and on about Mbappe transfer ? - it's really embarrassing now to keep talking about a player who has fuck all to do with our team or the city of Liverpool.  I only want to know about him if he has signed for us, could not give a fuck about him not signing his extension.  Then there are those articles about one player when in fact it's talking about some other shite player.  I don't fall the click - but it is annoying the shit out of me.
