      It certainly will be if you are going to react to every tweet and throw your toys out anytime a player is linked then doesn’t arrive

      Funny how I'm proven correct every single time though more than you are. I'd rather be realistic cause I've seen this happen every single time over being a fake super fan, everything is sunshine like you are.

      “Proven correct” ?

      When did that happen ?

      Klopp admits there could be a delay for new signings, but said it's no problem.

      "The better the player you want, the lesser the desire of the club to let him go, so we are prepared for it,- if we have to wait 6-7 weeks (for a signing) it is not a game changer".


      It's going to be a long summer is it.

      We need to sell first. Klopp needs to raise his spends as he isn't getting any help from our wonderful custodians.

      “Proven correct” ?

      When did that happen ?

      You were running around telling people to shut up when they were clearly more knowledgeable than you are, knowing that under FSG we are not signing world class players like Bellingham so there was no point to waste a season for him. Maybe people understand how this club operates under the FSG more than you are.

      I know exactly how the club operates under FSG.

      And by “more knowledgeable” do you mean the likes of you jumping and reacting to any Twitter rumour

      Have to laugh at the 'we will close the gap' comments in here.

      2 years ago bar city nobody was anywhere near us. The reason they closed the gap, caught us, went passed us and left us behind all very quickly is that we stood still and didn't stay ontop of our business.

      Arsenal, Newcastle, United and City will not be standing still this summer or any other summer. They won't be spending all their time talking a great game and then going missing when it's time to put the money down.

      All the 'like rice,  but too expensive for us' comments are funny too. Not too expensive for arsenal Chelsea United I'm sure .... or god forbid City. Only too expensive for us and our tight arse parasite owners who are the main reason all klopps work to get us back to the top has come undone.

      This summer will see klopp having to bring money in first. And if we go into long winded haggling to knock a few million off on players we will lose simple as that as others will just pay up.

      If we get to the first international break next season and another shambles of a summer is unravelling then there will be a problem.

      We have not strengthened from a position of strength. There are various reasons for that. 4 players leaving on free transfers is a joke. 3 of them we should of got good money for including Chamberlain and keita long ago. How many clubs let 4 first team squad players leave for free in one summer and 2 of them in their 20s, one at 30 and international footballers. F*cking Negligence.

      Something that is right ... it will be a long summer and I'm not very optimistic on us bringing in quality. Its going to be quantity over quality and trent in midfield coupled with jota and Diaz fully back will be '3 new players'

      And 🤷‍♂️ what is the issue ? Maybe listen to him and understand that he isn’t panicking about signings and they will happen


      So again - when you stated you have been proven correct on everything give some examples ?

      I think you are wasting your clairvoyance skills posting on here....Maybe you'd be better served buying yourself some lottery tickets.
      You, like many on here thought we wouldn't get Bellingham...it was a guess...well done...I don't think we'll buy Rice..Do I get a prize?

      Yes - name a time when we “had” to sell to buy a player ?

      Coutinho wanted to leave so the club sold him and then used the money to improve the squad

      Chelsea signed Kante after finishing 10th then went on to win the league the next season, United signed 2 Champions league winner whilst being in the Europa League. We can't attract big players because of no Champions league is an old tired excuse.

      No way alisson or van dijk come here if coutinho wasn't sold. No way. Probably still have karius in goal.

      Funny how coutinho and van dijk left in the same window. Can't think why. Oh that's right .... sell to buy.

      Who is making that excuse 🤷‍♂️

      And what’s a big player ? Kante was a good player at Leicester when they got him

      We got players like Mane and Co without CL


      How about just wait and see what happens FFs

      Did we sell Coutinho just so we could buy VVD ( a player we were also looking to bring in during the summer that season )

      Or did we sell Coutinho because he was faking injuries to get out of the club

      When we were run like a slick machine with Edwards at the helm, signings would have all but been done bar the signatures by now.

      Just a sign off the malaise running through the club with owners who wanted out but couldn’t get the asking price.
