      Well that’s not true at all. Unless for example you think Rashford is worth 300k a week. To which if you do, then you are saying he’s worth more than any of our lads because we aren’t paying anyone, even Virgil that kind of money. Get paid what you’re worth apparently...

      What's Alexis Sanchez on these days? totally worth it!

      I hope FSG are adding on interest to this debt. Still owe us and yet paying €100m for other players. FFP my arse.

      Liverpool FC scores new partnership with EA SPORTS

      Liverpool FC has teamed up with creator of the EA SPORTS™ FIFA game series, Electronic Arts Inc., in a new long-term partnership to help fans get closer to and engage with the world of football entertainment.

      “Our partnership with EA SPORTS will enable us to give our supporters even more opportunities to engage with Liverpool FC through the innovative and exciting world of gaming. We look forward to working together over the next few years.”

      Question: Any websites devoted to the finances of LFC?

      I have to admit I am interested in the business of football almost as much as I am interested in the matches themselves.
      Reading articles about how the former owners bankrupted the team and the financial debt racked up at Man U, I want to know more about Fenway Group's financial game plan.
      Ticket revenue
      Concession revenue
      Breakdown of expenses
      Debt servicing
      Budgeting
      etc
      etc
      etc
      everything
      anything

      I realize actual detailed numbers will never see the light of day but I'm hoping some fully absorbed finance geek/obsessed LFC fan has given it a go.

      Thanks in advance

      Don't think money is the issue its vary much a case of getting the right players who can fit into Jurgens extended family.

      Trying to connect some dots here...

      LFC has kept their wallet in their back pocket for the most part, only purchasing a couple of kids while shipping out 2 vets who consumed considerable salary (combined 150k /week)
      Reports Mo may get a massive bump in salary (400+k/week)
      Reports VvD wants a significant bump
      News that Man U's DeGea signed to a 375k/week deal (crazy)
      What will Allison and Mane seek?
      Robertson getting ranked as one of the top LBs in the world

      Interesting time for LFC.
      So much talent worthy of elite contracts at a time when LFC sits on a pile of cash.

      Seems to me LFC will limit itself this year to splashing their cash in the form of significant pay raises to multiple stars.

      It really is weird that even after seeing how we’ve done our transfers the past couple of years that people still think this way.

      I don't believe this 93mill figure.
      Multiple articles at the time of the deal reported Barca paid 120 mill euros up front. Was LFC borrowing to buy VvD and Allison? Seems unlikely.

      Seeing as it’s rare for a team to do anything other than split a transfer fee down to the number of years the player is signing for, i very much doubt they paid anywhere near 120mill up front, so it’s quite possible they do still owe us 90mill.
      Even if Barca weren’t to pay us another penny, we still wouldn’t be borrowing the money for Virgil and Alisson because the amount we’ve made over the last 2 seasons through other revenue streams other than transfers will more than cover it. It’s called cash flow and we will be paying them transfer fees in instalments, just as Barca will be for Coutinho.


      Why is it when we spend money the transfer team and Klopp are amazing and then when we don’t spend money it’s down to the owners not putting their hands in their pockets? Have these people not considered that maybe it’s Klopp who is saying to the owners that we don’t need to spend because the right player isn’t available? Given the owners said we will invest again this summer, I’d say that scenario is highly likely.

      We need to reflect on the Pre Season and what its for because the time schedule the heat the travel is really not good for preparing to play in the EPL. It may well be good for the Bank Balance but how it benefits the team is in doubt. We don't play football in that sort of Temp and it must be very tiring for the lads.

      Why is it different than running up some mountain in the Alps or over sand dunes in Gullane? It is supposed to be hard. As James Milner is saying, It will pay off.

      You've a point. But I believe it's all marketing. This is the only time to market the club in America. Not everyone can come to watch the team at Anfield. So the club goes to them. And does promotionals.

      It will pay off if we start playing in searing temperatures but heat can be incredibly damaging. 
      I know they are working really hard but the heat is draining them rather than the effort.  Getting the balance in Pre season is getting difficult
