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...

:no  absolutely clueless
every Liverpool fan/supporter should give thanks to these owners and bless the they came to this club and saved us from the abyss...the transformation is astounding and should be the template for all clubs to follow

:nod  :nod

Thanks FSG for taking good care of our club and hiring Klopp

Well said Metal, FSG have been model owners. The icing on the cake will be if the Annie Rd stand expansion goes through as promised after a 12 month delay. Great stewardship.

Liverpool are the first Premier League champions to spend less than £10million on transfers in the season they won the league for nine years, having shelled out just £8.6million during their title-winning campaign.

The Reds wrapped up the 2019/20 title - their 19th league success overall but a first in the Premier League era - when Chelsea beat their closest challengers Manchester City at Stamford Bridge last Thursday.

That led to wild celebrations among the squad, who were gathered together to watch the game back on Merseyside.

Among their number was the Japanese attacking midfielder Takumi Minamino, who the Reds spent £7.25million on in January, and the young defender Sepp van den Berg, who was signed from Dutch side PEC Zwolle for £1.35million last summer.

The pair - who have only made five Premier League appearances between them this season, all Minamino's - are the only two players Liverpool have spent money on in the past year.
Goalkeepers Adrian and Andy Lonergan also arrived on free transfers, while Harvey Elliott's fee has yet to be determined as Fulham will take the Reds to a tribunal over a price for the youngster.

That makes Liverpool's title winning season the least expensive - in terms of transfer fees, at least - since Manchester United won the league in 2010/11 having spent just £6.3million that campaign, according to Premier League Productions.

Sir Alex Ferguson brought in the likes of Chris Smalling and Javier Hernandez that summer ahead of clinching his 12th and penultimate Premier League title.

Since that time every other Premier League winner has spent over £60million, bar Leicester's £27.3million in 2015/16.

Liverpool's low fees go alongside their incredibly meagre net spend during Jurgen Klopp's time in charge to paint a healthy transfer picture at the club.

As detailed by The Athletic, at a total of £92.4million the Reds' net transfer spend over the last five years is much less than the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Watford.

Over the same period, Manchester City's net spend is some £505.6million and Manchester United's is £378.9million.
