FSG were reliable at one point. And they've now allowed it to get to this mess.
No football structure and a brain drain upstairs in the football analytics department and recruitment. In terms of football brains, the club is sorely lacking now. At the moment, Klopp cedes too much to Lijnders too, whose judgement has been skewed causing this imbalanced team. It's clearly stated in his book too, with Lijnders 'buy top quality first' demand and his instruction to fill out the rest of the squad with youth players. This means we've missed out on rough gems like Caicedo for example who would have been a model signing earlier on in Klopp's reign. Instead its too much high priced signings (meaning lack of funds in other areas) who have not made us better along with inexperienced youth. A severe imbalance. Klopp needs to take the reigns and reinstate gegenpressing with hungry younger, and perhaps unfancied, players who will drive the club forward again. What's more, his style of football worked well in the initial seasons after Buvac left. The muscle memory of gegenpressing was still there and over time that has faded away while Lijnders emphasis on sterile possession takes hold.
Linjders influence is destroying this club. And Klopp is doing himself no favours in ceding that influence to the assistant.
