The media really never cease to make me laugh. It’s now common knowledge that we pulled out of the Werner deal due to the financial constraints of the virus. Werner would have cost in the region of £50m, which we couldn’t afford, yet, today I’ve seen an article linking us to £100m rated lautaro Martinez, one saying we’ve entered the race for £90m rated havertz and another once again throwing our hat into the ring for mbappe 😂😂😂😂.

Also read today that Ruben Neves @£80m is happening.

08 Jun 2020 23:47:15
I don’t understand why some people throw the ‘media’ under one umbrella. I have seen no mention of Havertz, Martinez or Neves in the media today. Maybe just try to avoid click bait articles posted on unreliable websites.

I’m so sorry Thunderbird, we must be lying about reading it if you haven’t seen it!

I think it wasn’t just a money thing that stopped us buying Werner. It was more a case of paying the 50mil for someone who wasn’t a starter in our team. We perhaps have the budget to spend that kind of money on one player so it’ll be down to Klopp and his team to decide what is their no1 priority.

I disagree with this decision but have a feeling Diego Carlos at CB (who Klopp sees as a starter) could be our one expensive outlay.

09 Jun 2020 07:03:27
We’re literally signing no one this summer. There is no money for transfers.

09 Jun 2020 09:01:38
The majority of it is guesswork and the other half is throw out enough names and eventually you will get one right.

It’s all driven to create clicks and hits on websites, unfortunately it’s no longer about informing.

Let's put the record straight

Liverpool are in a position to spend money and big money at that if required just not on a player who would be expected to sit on the bench and not exactly required

If a CAM OR CB became available that would push us on for 70 mill plus Liverpool have the money to get them in.

The way things have planned out financially is unfortunate . It will be a blow if we cannot strengthen due to the restraints financially and it seems it was a blessing in disguise the club have had such a strong two seasons and not spent any significant money on players for three windows. If that was not the case could we may have had to sell some big layers to cover this deficit?

I see Chelsea really benefiting now, would say City as well but not sure how brave they can be in the transfer market with the FFP issue still on going. They have made two excellent signings in Wrener and Ziyech and appentely now have money for Havertz as well, that is going to be a fine tralem they have next year.

I hope Liverpool can recover financially quickly enough to keep up in the transfer market. It's not like we need several players but look at Fergie with his United team, no matter how strong they were he went out and added at least one addition each window to make them stronger.

There are several (very reliable) sources saying there is no money to spend this window.

In fact Klopp and Peter Moore have both said that there’s no money for transfers because of the impact of the virus on revenue streams.

So you can be absolutely certain that we won’t be signing Sancho, Werner, Havertz, Traore, Snoogy Doogy or even Bozo Texino for that matter.

Actually Kimuraking. th, when United won the Champions League in 99, they signed Fortune and Silvestre so it’s not like they went and bought top quality all the time.

Maybe it’s best to look at what we already have at the club given the current situation and see if they can fill in the gaps in the squad than spaff money we don’t have.

If Lovren goes, Fabinho is capable of filling in at CB, Grujic has had a good season in Germany and shown he can play at number 6 so could easily do a job, Wilson is capable of replacing Shaqiri, Curtis Jones is a good replacement for Lallana and Neco Williams is a very decent understudy for TAA. I know that’s a bit of a simplistic solution, but sometimes the answer is right there in front of us. Our starting 11 is very strong so there’s not really a lot to worry about.

We will be there or thereabouts next season whatever happens.

There are too many teams rebuilding at the moment, Chelsea look as if they can push higher next season, Manchester United are a few players short and Arsenal plus Spurs have to do work. Not to mention Barcelona. It could be quite a competitive transfer window and with the Euro's pushed to next year game time will be a factor to any move for a European player such as Werner where Chelsea would be seen as an ideal platform for him. There is not much wrong with LFC squad at the moment and the owners want to extend the stadium so it makes sense to be frugal rather than indulge which what Werner would have been.

09 Jun 2020 12:37:28
Werner was never going to dislodge any of the Front 3, so would he really come to sit on the bench and maybe get more game time during the AFCON.

I still think Minamino will do a job, some players need more time to adapt.

I’ll get shot down for this but I also still see a player in Naby if he can he keep fit.

09 Jun 2020 15:20:23
Spurs are not going to go on a spree unless they sell Kane, Son or Alli. Arsenal may buy one player, but they’re still a million miles away as they’re two centre backs a whole midfield away from challenging as well as the probability they’ll lose Aubameyang. United aren’t as flush as they’d love the media to believe. City aren’t normally in the business of breaking transfer records and by the looks of things Pep is after more full backs. Chelsea are the only ones really spending, but then they sold Hazard and Morata and couldn’t spend until January this year and they’re weak in Defence and in goal. So they’ll be good going forward but will still ship soft goals. Definitely no need to panic,

That example of Fergie was over his career 6 Times, to single out one transfer window isn't an accurate picture. Look at the players he brought in when they were so strong and on top, the likes of Van Persie before him Van Nistleroy. Vidic, Ronaldo, Ferdinand. The list goes on and on, and these guys were not bargain basement, even a young Ronaldo was seen as a hot prospect. Point being strengthening when you have a winning team can only be beneficial because you never know how long this period of success is going to last. We can't do that this window so we need to make sure we can in the next.

10 Jun 2020 03:14:54
I am no finance guy but if the the virus situation is hitting us hard and we can't afford to buy a 50mil player, I don't understand how Chelsea can afford him as they are in the same situation as we are in. Unless of course, the difference is the owner is willing to dig deeper into his pocket to fund the transfers.

We're the reigning European Champs, we are on course to the Prem League champs and we've got a CL spot guaranteed for next season. Not to mention, we have a new mega kit deal with Nike and some new sponsors. The wages of our players are not the highest in the Prem League, so it makes me wonder, how poor can we be?

Unless they do not value Werner at 50mil, then that's another matter. Anyways, my main concern is we're allowing our direct rivals to upgrade while we sit back and relax. That's dangerous.

{Ed001's Note - are you for real? It has been explained over and over that we have built up debt over the years doing up the stadium etc and now we have been hit by the virus and have to tighten our belts as a result. Chelsea on the other hand have spent the same period becoming financially stable and ensuring they are operating within their means. Added to that they have sold Hazard etc. I don't know why people can't understand we simply are not cash rich.}

DAPred you make it sound like football manager or fifa where every year a lump of transfer money just regenerates to spend freely. Trust the people who are actually involved in the business of running the club to know what's possible and sensible in the long term as we currently have a settled and strong squad while upgrading the stadium, building a new training base and recently splashing out big money on world class players. Plenty money has been commited over last few years wisely to keep progressing but it's silly to question the decisions being made when you think it's financially that straight forward. I can't see any of our rivals being much strenghtened this summer while actually likely they can lose big players while our record breaking squad remains settled. Werner and ziyech don't suddenly make Chelsea have a strong goalkeeper and defence which is miles away from good enough. Take a deep breath and trust the running of the club.
