Simple facts, nothing else.


You have actually presented no facts or figures whatsoever. All your comments are based on conjecture. If you actually read the clubs accounts and then put an argument forward with fact and figures people might take you seriously.

Anyway, this is the thread on our captain who is on a wonderful run of form and is quite rightly receiving plenty of praise from long term admirers and detractors (and everyone in between).


So we really have to go the kindergarten way do we?
How much money each club puts down on players is extremely easy to check out. It has been clearly reported that the club is spending less than (forget city and manure) Everton and Brighton during the owners entire tenure at the club.
Just disingenuous to even suggest that is not the case.
So the owners have invested have they? WHAT A JOKE!
They have made a ton of cash in the last couple of years from the CL. But I guess you need sources that clubs that go to the finals in the CL makes insane amounts of money.
WHERE IS THAT REINVESTMENT? it sure as hell isn't on players when Brighton has a higher net spend than us. Stadium? Oh, right the new stadium that never will be....
The club made over 250 MILLION in revenues from just competitions last season. Profits was over 125 million in 17/18. My guess is maybe even better last season.
I know where that money has gone and it sure isn't to the club...



Your stance is laughable and I suspect it’s from a place of not wanting to back down

First thing to remember is the owners model is for the club to run on its own merits. No shares or dividends are paid out and the owner money is only their director wages

1. We as a club since the owners have arrived have spent £700mil plus on players - three managers have been given more money than any other manager in the history of the club - does it matter if it’s more or less than other clubs - the manager with Edwards has used that money well to have us as the dominate team in the keague right now and prob Europe - yet your crying about “investment” - what players do you want the club to invest in ?


2. Stadium - the new stadium idea was removed when they did a study on it - so instead of building a new stadium they have decided to improve Anfield ( something that should have happened 20 plus years ago ) - first stage has been complete at a cost of £200 mil , second stage will be a bit more - by the end of the full expansion we will have a 80,000 seater stadium still at Anfield - do you want a new stadium and be like Spurs and Arsenal ?!

3. Training facilities- they have spent a good fortune changing the training facilities to bring it all together at Melwood - again more money spent from the owners



What owners do you want ?

Glaziers - leverage debt , more management decisions , very much closed off from the club

The rich oil barons - a club totally at the whim of one person , he steps away and the investment stops - look at what’s happened with Chelsea , thrown his toys out of the cot

So what do you expect the owners to be doing beyond making the club one of the most attractive in the world and the dominate team on the pitch


And btw the accounts show they have not taken a penny away from the club

Interview with Sir Martin Broughton
Sir Martin Broughton believes Liverpool could now be worth as much as two billion pounds.
And the former chairman puts that down to Fenway Sports Group, who he says have delivered on everything they promised when they bought the club.
Broughton was the man responsible for selling the Anfield club to John W. Henry 10 years ago following the disastrous reign of George N. Gillett, Jr. and Tom Hicks.
The Reds currently sit top of the table and are just six wins away from claiming their first league title in 30-years, but the situation is a far cry from the one Broughton inherited at Anfield.
At that moment, the club was disarray at boardroom level, while on the pitch, Liverpool endured one of their toughest Premier League campaigns to date, that would eventually see them finish the season in seventh and be dumped out of the Champions League at the group stages.
And Broughton, in an interview with the Telegraph, has opened up what the club was like when he arrived.
“I was taken by surprise by how holistically dysfunctional it was,” he said. “I knew of the problems between the owners, and the problem between the owners and the fans, and the owners and the manager, Rafa Benitez.
“I was not aware there were three groups - the owners, the board members and the manager. It was an unbelievable scene of people in warfare, pushing their agenda against each other.
“The owners had lost credibility - credibility with potential investors, with the banks and, of course, the fans.
“That is why so many walked away from the process, or chose not to get involved at all. There was scepticism as to whether I could deliver - whether Hicks and Gillett would approve anything.
“We only ever received two formal bids. That tells you the club was sold for its market price.”
But fast forward to now and the mood around Anfield is a lot different. Last year saw the Reds become world and European champions and as a result, Broughton feels the club could possibly be worth two billion pounds.
“It is certainly worth one billion,” he says. “At least that. Possibly two.”
While Broughton also believes that FSG have delivered on everything they promised when purchasing the club.
“The sense of achievement comes from the fact that Fenway turned out to be the people I thought they were,” the businessman added.
“You never really know. You make your assessment and think they are the right people to own a football club like Liverpool, but you have to see it. They have delivered everything they promised.”
