Perfectly true, I’m of the opinion now that our owners have reached a crossroads with us, in short they have taken us as far as they are prepared to go,
Yes we still have monies to spend, but the last two weeks have shown us where they stand, they will put offers on the table, but their wage structure is miles off what the oily’s can offer , as well as that Cnut Boely, and we will get Gazumped each and every time a club will/ can offer a better wage than what FSG can,
So either FSG change, or sell up and move on, Newcastle for what it’s worth, are doing things the right way, their awash with money but are staying within FFP, and wee Eddy is building gradually and will within the next season or so, will have built a Title winning side,
Their progress is admirable, after only one year they have CL status, and perhaps this season being a bit early for a title win, we can’t rule them out, their almost a shoe in top 4, anyhoo, getting back to us and FSG…..
Last year they said they were open to new investors coming in, don’t think anything significant has happened in that regard, I think they will have a pow wow in the boardroom and iron out where to go next….and that could mean a total sell out….and a very possible oily take over…..going to be a very interesting next 12 months that’s for sure…..
Personally I hope they stay, but with a major investor providing the necessary funds that will allow us to get transfer targets over the line…..akin to Newcastle, where the funds are readily available when and if we need it !!
The whole of football and how it works is becoming ridiculous and the sad thing about it is we have to except it, trust me it isn’t going to get better anytime soon.
The majority were saying Newcastle wouldn’t put a challenge in for PL in 10 years despite the money ( I said less than 5 ) but already looking like they could be top 4 again. Don’t think they can win the league with Howe though, I doubt he has the cutting edge to go that far but credit where it’s due, he’s done well.
Many of you lot blame FSG for losing Caicedo & Lavia but I don’t see it the same way ( just my opinion) I was shocked, just like the rest of you with the massive bids you came out with for both players, more so Caicedo. I’m now seeing the future 🤦♂️ I can see ( in places like the chavs,city,Newcastle ) offering less for transfers but more in wages knowing the greed of todays footballer they’d refuse to go anywhere else, the players simply can’t loss.
I’m taking a guess here so let presume Liverpool offered Caicedo £200/250k a week? and allegedly chavs was over 300k, I did hear £315k but it’s only based of what I’ve read. Why would a player go to Liverpool or indeed any club. 99% of players will always go where the money is now. No such thing as loyalty anymore, is simply who offers the most and they’re off.
You lot had already had plenty of experience of losing players to the Oilys purely based on wages alone. The list is frightening where all the OAPs are leaving. Hendo, Ronaldo, Mane, Neymar, Firmino, Benzema, Maxmin, Kante, Mahrez, Koulibaly and no doubt more to follow. I honestly believe Salah is going, it’s just a question of when.
I’m afraid FSG won’t change, much as I personally thought they played their part for you in summer window the infrastructure they use simply wouldn’t allow it and I can see why. They do have to sell up for a sugar daddy if you’re going to match other clubs. No doubt some will say you’ve had success the way FSG run the business but that’s mainly down to Klopp, take him away and you would still be counting 31 years + for the PL.
I don’t think an investor is the right way Billy, I think it’s all or nothing.
On the bright side ( well for me it is 🤪 ) my £50 looking a bit better now. Somewhat surprised though after selling your OAPs it looks like you’re bringing another one in. 😂 I’ve been in this position at United, we both know it’s called panic buying, no matter who comes in now it’s almost certainly a downgrade on what you want/like.
With summer window nearly over it’s time for another guesstimate on my top 6. Will you even make top 6 now. 😂
