      Get well soon Boss. A little bit ironic too.

      It will be awkward not seeing him.

      The wife actually mentioned when she saw part of his press conference that he didn't look his normal self. Hope he's well again soon.

      Just a quick note to say Get Well Soon, Jürgen. So many cases among younger people bring only mild symptoms, but one group that CoVid tends to hit harder are smokers (respiratory virus). I hope the boss is doing alright.

      I've actually seen that smoking actually helps with covid because of niacin (used in food and would test you positive for nicotine) and the cigarette version nicotinic acid aka vitamin B3 in cigarettes.

      Unless the smoking has caused COPD or some other smoking related ailment like heart problems or artery issues there is actually some evidence that it helps weridly enough.

      That would be a weird one, for sure.

      Reminds of a story my Dad would tell about adverts on the radio here for Lucky Strike cigarettes back in the 50s with a tagline of "preferred by more doctors." This was before they started putting warning labels on the package.

      Doctors would advise smoking for stress relief. Mum smoked for 80 years until the day she died never had a cough. Not for me though I cant understand anyone smoking now its just slow suicide

      I think everyone has covid now it seems.
      Just looked on the bbc and quite a few celebrity folk have it.
      Arteta has it also.

      Makes me wonder though what chance the normal people have of avoiding it when these sporting celebrities have strict and daily testing.

      It’s inevitable really we will catch it. Just thankful it’s omicron which is fairly weak.

      As for klopp, I’m sure he will be fine. 99.9% of people are and I have no doubt he will not be resting when he’s watching the game on the monitor!

      Soz but we aren't buying full-backs for £50 million a pop, which is how Pep's squad has been built.

      We can't match the UAE oil.

      Never going to happen and I wouldn’t want us to operate that way.

      We do need to go big in the summer though and get some quality players into the first XI - we haven’t had major investment since the title winning season and this squad you feel is starting to move past its peak.

      No one is asking to Spend such figures mate, we got Robbo & Kostas for what a combined £13 million..?

      I’m sure if we can unearth a couple of more gems & Klopp can polish them up..

      Which is what they have been doing, is it the speed at which we're doing it that's the problem, also Klopp's trying to blood kids from the U-23's into the squad but it again takes time, which at the moment we don't have.

      Pep at City hasn't done that, he's built a squad with dough which is what Walton was referring to and I responded to, so what you put in your quote is not what was f**king asked!!

      "I am proud and humbled," Henry said. "We have a lot of work to do, and I can't tell you how happy I am that [the deal] has been completed. We're here to win. We have a tradition of winning. We'll do whatever we need to do."

      NESV chairman Thomas Werner added: "We recognise that Liverpool Football Club is an historic institution ultimately grounded in the community and the fans.

      "Our first step as new owners will be to listen. We want to hear from the manager and the players and those who are part of the daily operation of the club.

      "We will be visible at Anfield and will embrace and listen to those who have stood by this club and who are the rock on which its future success will be built.

      "We want to hear from the fans, local leaders and the local community. We want to hear from those who know LFC best, who have made it the best and share our desire to return to a culture of winning."
      what a load of bolox this turned out to be. 12 years net spend £250mill which would have been the figure DavidMoores would have been able to put in and the reason he sold it as he realised this would not be enough to compete with City Chelsea or UTD.

      'A return to a culture of winning'

      Is that what he said? Pretty sure that's exactly what has happened.

      Along with having players the envy of the league and Europe.

      One of the best GK in the world.

      Best RB and a generational talent.

      Best LB in the league and among the best in Europe.

      Best CB in the World.

      Front three/four the envy of most with the best player in the world.

      Forgot this is the Klopp thread so to close the best manager in the World who despite what you think loves working with these sh*te owners who have returned us to a culture of winning.

      No manager in the world, other than Jürgen, wins anything under FSG's business model. This man is irreplaceable.

      FSG fanboys can say what they like, there's no one in the world that wins even a Carabao Cup with that sell to buy policy.

      And a win away from another league title.

      Add another European Cup final and we have been so close along the way added to the actual successes we've had as well

      Still plenty to play for this season as well

      There is no bollocks there whatsoever. He's mentioned nothing about money or made any promises of amounts they're going to spend. All he mentioned was that they wanted to return to a culture of winning. This team has won the title and European Cup in the last 2/3 years and are in a semi final next week, sitting comfortably in the top four and competing in the knockout stages of the European Cup. A world apart from where we were at the time the quote was made

      This is the Klopp thread anyway so no idea why you're posting decade old quotes from the owners which were made years before Klopp even joined.

      I get that, I really do

      But this is where I don’t get the black and white argument of it all

      Yes we have achieved so much under them, yes there is so much we should be grateful for (all of us) but if there was now a bit more investment…….

      What could we achieve if so?

      This is kind of where I’m at too. Don’t get me wrong, I have loved what we’ve won and becoming a force again.

      But I can’t help but feel we should actually have a little more to show for how good we have been and if the owners pushed the boat out just a little more we wouldn’t have to make every season such a challenge.

      I think with some proper investment (and I guess ‘proper’ is subjective) we would have a few more major trophies under our belt.

      We need to win more whilst Jürgen is at the helm because this is a golden era for us in terms of quality we have available.

      Who knows mate?

      And I'm not being awkward but I honestly don't know. Given the manager is very loyal to his players would he even want more players and ship players out?

      I'm not convinced it's as clear cut as just buying more quality and is a lot more nuanced than that.

      If Jürgen was given the chance to sign a number 8 but that meant he couldn't get Harvey Elliott into the side would he have went for it? I'm not totally convinced he would.
