The Werner deal has been agreed. Just not by us.
Nobody has demanded 200m quid be spent on players to sit on the bench. All we're asking is that the squad is strengthened, because it needs to be. So we don't go 7 years winning nothing again, or even 30 years hoping to win one trophy. Because you can safely bet our rivals will be doing it in the next transfer window. We used to laugh at Spurs for not investing in their squad. Now it's us that have that problem and it's not a joke. We cannot expect to spend 5m on teenagers and expect to compete for 4 major trophies next season. Only Norwich spent less than us last summer, and they're about to be relegated.
It seems to me you are more interested in what we spend as opposed to the results on the pitch - who cares if only Norwich spent less , we have improved to the point we have a 20 plus point lead at the top of the table - if you can’t see that it shows you don’t always have to spend to improve a team. The manager and his policy and structure is improving the team , we are integrating youth players and if the manager really needs a player then I have no doubt they will buy him
Its true that the commercial side has gone from strength to strength. Record revenues here, record profits there, lucrative deal with Nike on the way, and yet we're still prioritising this competition over that competition because we don't have the players to compete on multiple fronts, like the best teams in Europe have every year. Doesn't make sense.
we will never have players to compete on all fronts , not many teams do especially when we have 4 trophies , 99% of the teams priority is the league and the CL if they are in it. City maybe be able to attract multi millions to sit on the bench , same with PSG but I’m sure you can guess their connection.
We have a very good squad right now and one that can challenge on both the league and CL , and that is what matters
As for Kenny not working out, he brought us to two cup finals, won us our only trophy for 13 years, and got us back into Europe, despite having to deal with the 8 game ban for Suarez based on no evidence. The next season after Kenny left, we won no trophies and didn't qualify for Europe. The following year, our esteemed owners signed the laziest player in world football to replace Suarez, and we know how that went. It was 5 years after that, before silverware was added to the cabinet.
Kenny was the wrong pick after his initial period of interim manager and he even admitted that he shouldn’t have been given the job , you bleat on about challenging on all fronts and with Kenny we were shocking in the league. And why was it our owners signing lazy players ? Was that not with the management ? Or did they personally sign him.
Our transfer policy is largely dependent on players such as VVD are willing to wait around for us to sign them up. In his case it worked, in most cases it doesn't.
Just VVD ? What about all the other players signed since Rodgers left ?
Mane , Mo , Gini , Fabinho , Alisson , Firmino , Robbo , Matip
It’s quite clear that the transfer policy is working and has helped the manager build a team that wins major competitions
When we do win the league, all the credit should go to Jürgen, as he is the difference between where we are, and where the owners would have us be without him.
The credit goes to the whole of the team not just Klopp and Klopp himself will recognise that
