ed02, like your honesty, even if it isn't always what we want to hear/ read
a questions if I may, haven' seen it so if I missed it, just reply rtfp. you think Mane will go next summer? why and where do you think he will go?

{Ed002's Note - There was interest in Sadio Mane this summer from Inter Milan and he is a consideration for Real Madrid going forward - but they have another player or two in mind more immediately. Don't be surprised to see interest from Barcelona. As to whether or not he will move, Liverpool will certainly want to hold on to him but he, like others, will be attracted by the chance to challenge at the highest-level and will want to consider his options - so I think there is perhaps a chance he will go.}

I think we need to accept that the vast majority of players want to play at the very highest level and if they are good enough then there will be interest in them from the very best teams.

To avoid such things happening we need to be challenging for honours every year, domestic and european.

It is very rare that the best players will want to leave the best clubs and will generally only happen when there are other situations going on in the background. Costa leaving Chelsea and Neymar leaving Barcelona being two examples.

To get the best players and keep the best players you need to be towards the very top of the pyramid, at the moment we aren't. Hopefully that can change.

RedDawn is 100% right. The way to combat our best players wanting to play at the top is to be legitimate challengers for the top and to give them in Liverpool what they believe they can get elsewhere i. e. a full trophy cabinet.

And big wages. sadly.

Brilliant so a chance Mane could go to Barcelona but I suppose they want to play at the top. I just hope that we don't turn into a feeder club.

Big salaries will often do the trick.
Prime example is De Gea and Rooney at United.

When Rooney was playing well in a not so great United side, City came sniffing around and they offered him. A new contract reported at £300k per week.

De Gea is one of the best keepers around IMO, United paying him huge wages.

To challenge year in year out, you need to compete with the bank rolled super rich ownership structures. Unfortunately buying success is the current method ruining football and FSG aren't in the same bracket. One needs to spend $300m in today's market just to keep pace. If we could get lucky with a few players all hitting career best form at the same time, few injuries and a bit of good fortune we could challenge for a season or two, until the squad is cherry picked by Barce or RM. Sad but true. I think trying to outspend is pointless, just keep bringing new blood focussing on quality not quantity as there are enough decent players out there but we need to find them first, then it's just 11 v 11 on match day.
PS. Still think Liverpool need a gun striker first and foremost. Goals cure everything!

Bigger problem for LFC is that the EPL is the hardest league to get champions league every year, the likes of Chelsea and Man U have missed out in recent times. The 2 Spanish clubs aren't going to any time soon. Ultimately if a player wants the guaranteed by default route rather than being part of the reason for getting UCL then do you want to spend large sums of money to keep them.
