Double edge sword, is how I see being owners of a football club, we are not City, or PSG, or Chavvy Chelsea, we are Liverpool football club, and our owners being business men are running the club like a business, they won’t Chuck money at us hand over fist because that simply isn’t going to work long term, I don’t know figures but it would be interesting finding out exactly how much money Abramovich has spunked over the years at Chav land, the Shaky sheikh’s at City are relatively new at buying their success and have been under scrutiny with the FFP sh*t,
How many Millions has the Glazer lot spurted over the years at Scumchester ?
John W Henry, FSG, NESV, employed Jürgen Klopp because he can and has obtained success with a fraction of the budget those above have squandered, and that is not a bad thing least not for the health and well being of Liverpool FC, they have backed Jürgen when he has needed it, until recently, when a global pandemic has wiped out a very large slice of revenue, money which would go straight back in to allowing further investment in players, so the goalposts have shifted if you pardon the pun,
So what now ?
Believe it or not, if the pandemic hadn’t happened I think Jürgen would have wanted to strengthen this summer, and I mean huge, not just one or two boosts, I’m talking about mega millions and a serious overhaul, but it ain’t gonna happen this summer now that’s for sure, what he will want though is perhaps 3,4 or 5 high quality individuals, let’s call them stage one of a rebuild, to arrive before August, where the monies come from he will have no idea, well he might but, it won’t be from ticket sales will it, so now that the goalposts have shifted it may force FSG to loan or dig deep into their own coffers,
I say that because I still believe FSG are here long term, so contributing out of their own resources will do them no harm, before covid I believe they were preparing for some major investor to join their ranks and with them a major injection of cash, can’t remember the fellas name Billy something or other, anyhoo he is mega wealthy apparently so monies would have been made available for transfers.
I don’t think we have bad owners, they are running us the way they said they would, we are not in debt, we spend what we earn and they have plans for further expansion to Anfield, aka the Annie Rd end, they are looking at bringing in new investors, with money to burn, and apart from this unprecedented season we are winning Titles & European Cups, what is there not to like, it could far worse, we could have Mike Ashley, or those Dipshits at Arsenal, or worse yet the f***in Glazers and their out of depth manager,
I think back to the H & G nightmare and wonder where we would have ended up had they still been at the helm, looking forward maybe to a play off spot in the Championship?
Careful what you wish for is all I’m saying and be grateful for what you have, cos it ain’t too bad is it ?
