LFC take in one of the highest revenues in the league. 100% of that will be reinvested into the club. If you think that that's not enough to compete because of one transfer window then all you are doing is being impatient and reactionary.
It's absurd to look at all the money spent last summer on an already expensive club and say that although the signings were mostly shit the main problem is a lack of investment.
if i said any of that you might well have a point.
united have 20 years of spending and winning league, city have spent 500million, spurs and chelsea a decade of spending. Arsenal are selling at present but have always finished top four.
It makes a difference. Whether you want to admit it or not. We have a hell of a lot to catch up on. 6th place last summer was inpart due to january investment in suarez and carroll, hodgson going and the phsycological boost of kenny. I think we now have a good foundation a good bunch of 18 to 23 year olds. Comparable with the kids at old trafford and arsenal. What we havent had is massive investment in the first team.
we were a selling club and now we have had 3 transfer windows and a net spend of 40m. 6 players brought in.
They havent played well this season. This season which has been effected by a number of viarables. Carra starting, lucas doing his knee, gerrard being out, suarez having a racism charge on his head from october til february. This is our spine. All out for large chunks of the season. Massive weight on downing, carroll, henderson, adam, spearing, enrique, to step up and carry the entire team with key players out. Many of whom its their first season wearing a red shirt, some its their first season of premiership footy.
A physcological boost of signing another forward winger or midfielder on loan or permanent could have made a difference with regard the tail end of this seasonm like it did the season before.
It hasnt happened and i'm not surprised we are limping home.
We need to invest again in the summer. We need a half decent forward and a half decent wide player. I'd like a domineering centre midfielder too to play alongside lucas.
suarez gerrard wide player.
lucas domineering midfielder
usual back four.
carroll, bellamy, downing, adam, henderson, shelvy, spearing, coates, kelly, sterling becomes quite a good squad with three half decent additions.
