Hi Eds,

this is my first post here, and I really appreciate your work.

I'd like to ask, how financially sound is the club right now, after latest departures? Is FFP going to be an issue in the next season?

Also, how much money could Klopp be given next summer, not including the player sales, do you think?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Hi Kamil - going forward the club has the additional income from TV rights which puts it on to a much better footing and will allow the club to look to pay off debts rather than have the owners write debt off (which is the same as them giving more money to the cub). The club will again be supportive of Klopp but I would not expect a fixed sum to be given to him for transfers - everything will be on a case-by-case basis.}

Good post Kamil and thanks ed002.

Thanks for the response, Ed. Good to know that slowly but surely, the club is growing.

Does that mean Ed002, a bid for messi isn't out of the question?


{Ed002's Note - It is an interesting point oddly enough.}

Well we do have a French international BPD who probably would be ok with going to Barcelona and considering they need a replacement for Mascherano maybe a straight swap for Messi wouldn't be out of the question?

Ed, there's no way you can say that in here without mass hysteria breaking out! One of your dry, don't be ridiculous responses would have been best.

23 Feb 2017 09:51:04
Ed002 is never predictable 😉.

I personally don't think they overly supported any manager! Kenny received the torres money Rogers received the suarez money Klopp used the Sterling/ benteke money, I think it's misleading to say they've been supportive! That's my opinion anyway.

If we get champions league football the squad will have to increase in numbers.
I know we had injuries this year but even with just domestic football to deal with we looked stretchEd.

I read up to 6 players would be needed.
That's some investment.

There is a limit on squad size. If players come in the some players will have to be left out of the squad.
We need more quality, not more numbers.

I know where your coming from but a daft old fool like me wishes the club would get back to operating at a sustainable level sooner rather than later.

23 Feb 2017 20:45:49
Waro, your post makes little sense. The club got money for transfers and it got ploughed back into the club for investment on new players, something every club or business should be doing. What do you expect them to have done? Keep the money and use their own personal credit cards to fund the transfers? I know you don't like the owners and we get it BUT at least, post stuff that makes sense. Oh n BTW, Klopp did not use the Sterling money. That would be BR as Klopp came in middle of last season.

I'd say the club rarely gets the money for a transfer in one lump.
I'd say it's paid yearly in installments depending how long the player signed for

I'm sure that eds done something on it before about balance sheets for the club for each season money in and money out and then wages.

The only way we can be sustainable is to have 1 or 2 stepping up from the u23 and maybe 1 top drawer transfer signing each season.

The problem is that there is such a gulf in difference between the 2 levels.

The only way the u23 can get up to speed is by playing first team football.

I don't think loans are the answer either as in most cases the loanees always have in their heads that they have the parent club to fall back on.

They need to play in a competitive environment where their futures at a top club are at stake.

That separates the best from the rest.
