It's alright keep banging the Liverpool are great doing their business early drum. That they identify an area of weakness and go out and address the problem.
Last two seasons have seen them pocket £124.1 million and £134.1 million
Yep, £258.2 million, a quarter billion more.
The big hitters like UTD and City only rush their buying if there is a threat to the deal, otherwise they just sit back and blow everyone else aside with mega wages on offer usually good enough to get the deal done.
It's been said no others were in for VVD, so why all the cum fest because they signed a CB.
Whoopy feckin do.
Quarter of a billion more than us over 2 seasons, higher wage ceiling. We might pay the premium early if we were in the same bracket.
Let's concentrate on our team as opposed to praising a team for buying a CB early and a player who will join next season.
If this is somewhat a struggle, have a cheeky smirk and remind yourself how little we paid for Alli.
bought ages before Klopp arrived), and conveniently ignores the £60m+ they spent on Wijnaldum and Chamberlain.......if Coiutino goes to Barca this window then they'll be back down in 6th/7th.
What they have done reasonably well, is sold a load of old shite for good money, which has gone some way to balancing the books.
Ive been praising their business and particularly acquiring their targets early and mentioned the months more or less when they were signed.
Btw we have done the same on a few deals... Alli/Vertonghen/Janssen etc... But ive tried hard not to compare our deals... The point of my original post was they wising up and doing good business OVERALL.
Thats said with Spurs blinkered tints there... But i understand that.. Grudgingly not wanting to compliment a rival. I think the opposite and by seasons end they will be in the top 4. For a second season running. It wont be a coincidence too.
The line of finishing behind us 7-8 seasons running doesn't hold much sway. It just means their business was poor then.
This season i think we stood still... They might have caught up and overtaken us BUT lets wait until the season ends to confirm if this is indeed the case. I am worried this season whereas previously i knew they were still some distance off us.
I think your forgetting just how inconsistent Mane was at Southampton, I certainly remember talking with a number of different mates and us all thinking he was way over priced, he also doesn't have the best injury record.
Under klopp they have bought 14 players for a total of £221,300,000 and I would argue only 2 have been hits, and as others have pointed out they are still lacking in certain areas
So weird how they shut down player threads at the drop of the hat there when they look like they are leaving. Every club has fans that will have a melt down when a star player leaves, just take it on the chin and let people vent.
