      In the context of him and not someone else doing the signings.
      He's definitely referencing Chelsea sacking Tuchel.

      In the context of our abysmal start to the season and our horrific injury crisis and lack of quality in depth, the best manager in the world cannot polish sh*te when under financial restraint.
      Jürgen Klopp once again using subtle comment in the hope of getting some dosh to galvanise LFC.

      But he didn't. It was clearly a reference to Tuchel getting fired.

      High quality players back meaning the midfield actually presses.

      focus has been on midfield but lets not forget what the best front three in world football was is no more Sadio has gone Bobby and Mo not at their peak any longer.
      Anyone else think Jürgen looked to have lost a lot of weight and just doesnt seem himself at the moment.
      One constant  I hope is our total belief in Jürgen

      It seems the only means of getting the midfielder for instance is by way of sell to buy, in light of there being no saleable candidates the manager has been dropping hints hoping the owners will listen regarding our shambolic midfield situation.
      You're right Billy he might as well whistle in the wind.

      Also like The Boss' comments regarding that Boehly suggesting an all-star Premier League game.


      Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is unimpressed by new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly's idea of a US style 'All-Star game' in the Premier League.

      Boehly, part-owner of baseball team the LA Dodgers, and basketball sides the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Sparks, suggested a north v south game.

      He said he hopes the Premier League "takes a little bit of a lesson from American sports".

      Klopp said: "Does he want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters as well?"

      The German was asked about Boehly's idea after Tuesday's 2-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League.

      Earlier in the day at a conference in New York, the American said: "Why don't we do a tournament with the bottom four sports teams, why isn't there an All-Star game?

      "People are talking about more money for the pyramid, in the MLB All-Star game this year we made $200m (£173m) from a Monday and a Tuesday.

      "So we're thinking we could do a north versus south All-Star game for the Premier League, for whatever the pyramid needed, quite easily."

      The NBA's All-Star game takes place during the regular season, in February, and pits players from the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference. The starting line-ups for the exhibition match are selected via fan, player, and media voting, with head coaches selecting the reserves for each 12-strong team.

      Klopp, who has previously been critical of the crowded football schedule, responded: "When he finds a date for that he can call me. In American sports these players have four-month breaks.

      "Maybe he can explain that. I'm not sure people want to see that - [Manchester] United players, Liverpool players, Everton players all together. North-east too, so Newcastle. It is not the national team. All the London guys together, Arsenal, Tottenham, great. Did he really say it?"

      When asked what his fellow football club owners would think about an All-Star game Boehly said: "Everyone likes the idea of more revenue for the league.

      "I think there's a real cultural aspect, I think evolution will come."

      Boehly, who led a consortium to a £4.25bn takeover of Chelsea in May, also put forward the suggestion that relegation places for the top-flight could be decided by a four-team tournament, rather than the usual format of the three bottom sides going down automatically.

      There is no relegation in the major sports in the US, with the worst performing teams getting first picks of new talent in a draft which leads to accusations of teams "tanking" for an improved pick.

      "The economics of going into the Championship are materially different," he added.

      "When you go into the Championship those numbers fall off a cliff. So there's no one thinking about tanking, and those relegation games are some of the highest broadcast games."

      So Boehly has been here for a few weeks and wants to restructure the whole football system. 😂😂😂😂

      If you don’t like what it is, why the f**k would you invest over £4 billion into it ?

      What a total muppet !

      Yep Yank sports are sh*te, imo, baseball for instance, f***in glorified rounders, tell me what’s different, bloke with ball chucks to bloke with bat, bloke with bat attempts to smash the ball as far as poss, then runs to wee mounds of dirt 4 x in a square to score 1 run, it’s terribly exciting folks, so excited in fact it’s only played in Yank land but they call it the WORLD series, how the f**k can you be world champions??


      Yank football, don’t make me laugh, they wear more pads than women at the menstrual cycling world championships and just like this so called sport, NOT very appealing, another sport they like is called chucking their weight around but their not very good at it, they keep getting their ass whooped, Vietnam, Cambodia, Afghanistan…yada yada yada…GET IN THE HOLE ….from 400 yards out…ffs, this Boely Cnut needs to shut the f**k and f**k off with trying to Americanise our beautiful game !!

      If it ain’t broke don’t fix it , Simples!

      I think that process has begun a while ago with the introduction of "Water Break". Yes I understand if it weather conditions are cruel they should break for hydration but over the years the standard in terms of when the game requires one are lower and lower and sure at some point someone will decide to pull the trigger and before you know it will be a regular thing.

      As for the all-star game, as someone who grew up with American sport culture the all-star how I see it is for the kids and trying to get their interest into the sport (as that is goal now of sport leagues who are in competition with other entertainment industries.

      Not that I think it would ever fly but I do chuckle at some of the outage reading comments about it (though these days everyone is outraged about something). Not much I would like to see football adopt from American sport culture (probably salary cap but that would unlikely to ever happen)

      A difference of 200 mn. :P
      Our net spend is at 8mn, a meagre 200mn less than United's.

      Odd since we apparently bid around 100m for that cat that went to Madrid. I guess maybe we'd have had to sell Salah had he decided to come here?

      I would imagine the way we tend to structure our deals it would have been more attractive to Monaco to have a larger up front fee.
      Or maybe Madrid just offered him better wages.

      He wanted to play for another team instead. It happens.

      "Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are among other teams who pursued the France international. Jürgen Klopp called Tchouaméni in the hope of convincing him to move to Anfield but the player was interested only in Madrid. PSG walked away from negotiations last Friday on that basis, having been ready to pay the highest fee with a guaranteed €100m."

      Our "apparent" bids appear to be just that, nothing materialises.
