    I think you’ll find anybody City signs will have been months in the preparation and mostly done and dusted already. Or already failed

    So I dont think there’ll be any press-favourite ‘battling’ going on this summer.

    The majority of the transfer stories no matter who the club and who the player are pure speculation by the press I never believe anything until I read it on the official club site.

    Although it’s always enjoyable to read the stories even the nonsense ones.😀

    Higuain to Liverpool???

    Higuain will be 29 next birthday and has a massive buy out clause the owners would have to kick all of their principals into touch to make that happen.

    Nine,they’ll have to change their principles at some point mate,why not now? They’ve been in charge for 5 years and still don’t have a clue what they’re doing. It’s scary.

    The bottom line is: I assume they purchased Liverpool to make money,turn a profit. To do that,they need us to be successful,and we quite simply aren’t being. That would suggest that their ways of working,and running the club up to now are misguided,or just plain wrong.

    They need to get rid of the people in their ears,these ‘football people’ they’ve employed. They’re just morons who’ve wasted the vast majority of their money. FSG have backed LFC financially,there can be no disputing that. But the people they’ve trusted with their money have let them down badly

    Spot on ST couldn’t have put it better. No one is disputing that FSG have backed the club financially it’s just that the advice they have been given has been piss poor. It’s no secret they are fed up watching good money purchase tripe so with a bit of luck they will let Klopp get on with it. The Higuain rumours won’t die and tbh I would agree with nine that he is too old for the fee being quoted.

    The thing that worries me Shanksy,is that their net spend is quite low,and the vast majority of big money signings have been funded by the transfer fees of the likes of Sterling and Suarez. How much of their own money are they using to purchase players? Is that why it appears that they haggle so much,because they’re being frugal with their own cash? The Coutinho rumours worry me. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was sold,and then we bought players with that cash,rather than FSG’s own reserves. I guess time will tell

    st, I think it’s quite possible that Fenway will adjust their thinking on transfers but paying a potential buy out clause of circa £70m for a player who will be 29 in a few months time I would hazard a guess is very unlikely in respect of how Fenway see the running of the club especially as the player will have limited resale value. Cheers 999

    ST agree most of their spending has been funded by sales and the way we haggle and try to save money only to lose out pisses me off no end. If we want a player pay the fecking fee being asked.

    Nine,I really hope so. I do agree that paying £70m for him is ridiculous though. I’ve wrote on another thread that I can’t see the Higuain thing coming off. I’ve never really been a big fan of his anyway if I’m honest. Don’t get me wrong,he’s decent,I just don’t think he’s top drawer,and for £70m,i’d expect a top drawer striker.

    Shanksy You’re right,the haggling thing is annoying,and has happened so many times now. I understand that they can’t buy every player that we want,but if we can’t get the player/s we want,don’t then throw money at a plan B,in an act of desperation because plan A didn’t come off. They don’t appear to be learning their lesson,and that is a major worry. We want LFC to be successful for the titles and cups it would get us,they NEED Liverpool to be successful so they make a profit. Theoretically,everyone wins,but they just keep going about it the wrong way. People on here think I have an agenda against FSG. I don’t. I just don’t think they’re the right owners,and I don’t think that they will get us to where we want/need to be. It’s not a knee jerk reaction. It’s not as if they’ve only owned the club for 6 months. They’ve owned the club for 5 years. You’d think,in that time,they’d have got a grasp of what Liverpool and English football are about,yet that doesn’t appear to be the case. They don’t even attend the games on any kind of regular basis. It’s disheartening. People say “I don’t want LFC falling into the hands of a rich Arab”,but that’s exactly what we need,someone willing to back us heavily financially. If you don’t spend money,you get left behind (or,if you spend it unwisely). That’s a fact. I believe that,once the stadium is sorted,and they get us back in the CL,they will sell (the rumours about negotiations with people from Qatar are still doing the rounds). As I say,I don’t have an agenda against the owners,I just think,to be quite honest,they’re out of their depth
