Hi ed. please can you shed some light on recent rumours. how is it a global, cup winning, small spending (compared to manu etc) have no cash. Whereas man city can bid 623m for messi under FFP. I really do lack an idea on how FFP is supposed to work. even chelsea spent 50m on pulisic whilst being tranfer banned lfc only bought minimino. Yet still have more cash.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained over and over the reason that Liverpool don't have the money to spend like other clubs do. Manchester City have not "bid £623M for Messi. Chelsea purchased Pulisic before any ban and he was on loan at Dortmund. If Liverpool want to do what Chelsea have done, then they can. Simply raise funds through sales.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Chelsea also has a very dedicated owner unlike investors at LFC: Roman's motive is not to sell the club for a profit. He simply loves Chelsea FC. would keep the club with him till the end of the world.
Ed02 said some time back both Chelsea and City work on a different model compared to what Liverpool operates (End season payments) .
If anything we need to adapt the model at Chelsea. Have you seen their kit? the number of sponsors label on their shirt is Tripple to what we have.
But that being said I agree the only way to sustain the success in the most demanding league in the world is to throw money and upgrade the squad year after year.

Firstly I don’t want Messi at Liverpool

{Ed002's Note - WRONG PAGE.}

I agree with you Tyrion. Sadly, Chelsea may have one of the last owners who bought simply for the love of the club. those days are long passed unfortunately. Maybe I'm wrong.

Ed I think you have caps lock on.

Riomazy, (ed002 may correct me if I am (highly likley wrong), I haven't read everything)

however from what I can gather in simple terms

1. we spent money we didn't actually have, based on guestimated future income covering the outgoings
(forget all the bollocks you hear in the press about how much money we got for Coutinho etc. )
2. other clubs have simply managed their finances better than us
3. C.V. has had a massive impact on the finances of all clubs, and we can't keep spending money we don't have.

Tyrionn how can you say fsg are not dedicated. new training complex, extended anfield and have put millions into transfers aswell. they didn't get it right at the start but have brought the club forward in nearly everyway.

02 Sep 2020 15:15:58
They have invested the money the club has generated.

02 Sep 2020 16:57:25
Klopp brought the club forward, without him the team wouldn't be as good as they are, FSG have got lucky with him and haven't invested millions in transfers at all, crazy we don't have money for Thiago but not going over old news.

02 Sep 2020 18:05:52
Same ol stuff, diff day. Lancasterred, and who hired Klopp to do what he has done? They got lucky. You think you can b as successful a billionaire as these guys by being lucky? The whole FSG witch hunt I do stale, it is becoming nauseating and embarrassing to hear. Change the record cos it is severely scratched.

02 Sep 2020 18:11:56
TY, and what is wrong with that? Isn’t that how a real business should run as in reinvesting what you earn? The model is the model and it keeps us safe from facing liquidation again or did you forget all of that? If you don’t like the FSG model then make them an offer they can’t refuse and buy the club and then you can create your own model as a dedicated owner like Roman.

One problem, tho. Something called FFP that you are going to have to deal with cos the rules prevent you from filling financial holes with personal cash.

Yes the money the club has generated through sponsorship etc, which they have improved greatly, don't forget the 2 muppets who were in beforehand spending and leveraging what they could and had us hours from administration.
