It's called opinions mate, and everyone has one right.
It's not opinion though is it.
Since FSG have been here we've had three managers under their ownership (unfair to include owl before some smart arse pipes up) and our net spend has always been extremely low. At times it's even been negative.
So I can't help but laugh when people continually say things like 'If we don't sign anybody or spend the money then its all because of Klopp'.
As I previously asked, what planet are some of you on?
I don't remember FSG giving any of our managers an open cheque book ever so the above statement is a bizarre one to make. It makes zero sense.
If you offered klopp a world class number 10 and a world class centre half (two positions I feel we need to strengthen on if we are going to challenge city) then I'm pretty sure he would snap your hand off and take them so if we don't sign anybody else, or spend any more money, then I highly doubt its because of klopp and I'm fairly certain it's because we had no money left in the budget klopp was given at the start of the transfer window.
Was that budget enough? Well we've spent around 160m this window. Klopps net spend now stands at around 114m. That works out at around 38m a season. We also have half a dozen or so players who we're trying to ship out so those numbers will decrease too.
The club, during klopps management, has made an absolute fortune. So yes, we've spent some money this window, but it's been long overdue and there's no reason why our budget this summer couldn't have been higher. Much higher actually.
Im still left frustrated as a fan because I still don't think we have enough to win the league. I feel as if we're close but we're still missing those final pieces of the jig saw and there's no reason why we can't go out and get them.
I just hope we announce a major signing or two this week and only then will I start to credit our owners.
