Itís just funny how people on here keep threatening to stop supporting the club because they have some owners they donít like.  Itís all attention seeking nonsense - we all know that none of them would walk away from the club, it is too much a part of their life.

Worst still we know itís all virtue signalling - people on here saying such things reek of hypocrisy. Throwing around words like sportswashing, like they even have a clue about whatís going on in the world.  Somehow trying to feel superior.

It was only at the start of the millennium that the UK armed forces even allowed openly gay people to be in its services - where were these people then with their protests of human rights ? 

If people genuinely feel that resentful of human rights abuses to the point they would stop supporting a club ingrained in their DNA, I would expect that passionate defence of human rights to exist in most basic aspects of their lives but they donít. 

The problem with people in the main is they jump on bandwagons with a very shallow understanding. Remember green fell, clap for the NHS etc. People soon forgot once the media stopped talking about it.  It gets tedious to keep seeing the virtue signalling and melodramatic actions of posters in response.

Iím sure people on here will twist my words, thatís just what forums do, but spend 2 mins now researching where Nike replica shirts come from, and then come back and talk to me about how passionate you really all are about human rights.

All BS and only being mentioned because the media have spoon fed you to say it.




Always fun being told what I think.

If only I knew what I thought, it would make such a difference.

Anyway carry on mate.

Aye. It's clear that the modern "fan" sees us as dinosaurs who stand in the way of progress, and will gleefully see us fucked off because the only thing that matters anymore is spending hundreds of millions and winning trophies. Not unity, not heart, not community - just "give us the fucking silverware and how high do you want us to jump?"

I don't know if there are many in the city itself who hold those views, but there's plenty of Liverpool fans who have never set foot in the city who could tell them a thing or two about the core values of our club and what it means to support it.

Iíve got a slight hunch and it is giving me a concern about Lijnders.

Just speculating, but I suspect a bit of a power struggle has taken place behind the scenes, and at stake is who gets the managerís ear.

On the one side, the stattos. On the other, it feels like Lijnders is starting to exert more influence. Possibly not just in recruitment, but also in tactics as well.

Might be barking up the wrong tree, but I wonder if the fallout is due to a department not being respected enough in terms of having the managerís ear.

As for potential new owners, letís see what happens. It is premature to fall out over Saudi owners, or whatever, as we donít know what is happening. On a personal note, while I will make up my own mind as every red should, I will be watching Jurgenís reaction closely, as he knows the score on the inner workings, and his moral compass seems in tune with the best scouse traditions of the club. 

I had a similar thought - he definitely seems to be seeking the limelight more than he has done previously. Maybe Klopp is priming him to be a long-term successor or perhaps he wants to try his hand as a #1 elsewhere.

Yep, giving personal quotes to BBC and Sky, something which Saudi minister is weirdly doing. (If it is not state backed, how would he know that "private sector" bids will come?)

Just my opinion, but I think there is a good chance the Saudis do bid for us. Will be very interesting to see what FSG do, if the sale is not in it's last stages already.

Hence the "private sector" quote. It'll be some entity or fund backed by the state but with no connections on paper.

The very fact that the sports minister is promoting a takeover means it is a very real possibility.

As someone who spent a long time in South Asia, it feels like human rights are ignored when those countries and being exploited by the west.  People only start to get uncomfortable when they see wealthy Asians buying up assets in their countries. Unconscious racism / bias - Iíve seen this first hand.

God knows we have had our arguments over the years  in here with FSG and glass half full/empty.. If the saudis or whoever comes in, i have to lose 20 pounds - get into my standards corrupted shirt and start marching again.. losing against brentford is all right under that conditions, but not boring at least

Nah, cretin shout. I'm a wool and I'd be done the minute we announce a Saudi takeover.

What are people going to do when they take over the whole country ? They already own 11% of it ?
In fact is 11% enough to make you think to leave the UK?  As you don't know where and when you are contributing to the devil you hate so much ?

True. They own a large chunk of Sainsburyís, something like a quarter of Heathrow airport, own Harrods outright and significant chunks of property in the prime parts of London.

Itís their money that creates a huge inflow into the coffers of our government too - good old arm sales and the like.

If memory serves me correctly I believe they also built the USA embassy in London too?

They are loved by UK politicians from Labour and Conservatives, as well as our royalty.

There is nothing we can do about that. I can choose whether I continue to support Liverpool or not. As far as Iím concerned, if the Saudis buy the club then it will be dead.

You can choose to leave the UK as it means so much to you. Moreover weren't people saying if the Germans cared so much they shouldn't have gone to the WC?  So if you care so much probably best to pack your bags and head to Norway.  I hear they have plenty of their own reserves where they don't have to rely on the middle east so much.

It's up to any individual where they draw their moral lines. Plenty will draw them at Saudi or other state ownership. If you don't draw your lines there, fine, that's for you to decide. Saying people can only care about one thing if they care about everything is complete and utter bullshit.

:wellin

Saudi Arabia owning - indirectly or not - Newcastle, Man U and Liverpool would be a fitting end to professional football for me.  I'll be devastated if we end up owned by sportswashing despots but knowing the whole Premier League is sinking into the cesspit would soften the blow the tiniest amount.

I'm not sure at what stage the other clubs might make a stand or do they just stand in line and wait for their own despotic owners?

"Yet you participate in society" etc...

To paraphrase a user on here, who I must apologize to but I cannot remember who it was, but "I do not believe you cannot stand against anything, because you can't stand against everything"

The world is terrible, abuses everywhere, that does not mean you cannot stand against human rights abusers in your own way where you can in the means you can.

I can buy clothes and still shout out against sweat shops as a wrong in society. And I can still protest against sportswashers potentially taking over the club I love, without boycotting all of society.

Everyone has their own principles that they stand for, their own line in the sand. Reacting in different ways to different societal ills doesn't make you a hypocrite.

Worst still we know itís all virtue signalling - people on here saying such things reek of hypocrisy. Throwing around words like sportswashing, like they even have a clue about whatís going on in the world.  Somehow trying to feel superior.

It was only at the start of the millennium that the UK armed forces even allowed openly gay people to be in its services - where were these people then with their protests of human rights ? 

If people genuinely feel that resentful of human rights abuses to the point they would stop supporting a club ingrained in their DNA, I would expect that passionate defence of human rights to exist in most basic aspects of their lives but they donít. 

The problem with people in the main is they jump on bandwagons with a very shallow understanding. Remember green fell, clap for the NHS etc. People soon forgot once the media stopped talking about it.  It gets tedious to keep seeing the virtue signalling and melodramatic actions of posters in response.

Iím sure people on here will twist my words, thatís just what forums do, but spend 2 mins now researching where Nike replica shirts come from, and then come back and talk to me about how passionate you really all are about human rights.

I know these arguments keep resurfacing but I'd like to get a direct answer to this question from someone who engages in this whataboutery.

The biggest problem here is you think you have a choice. But you know, thats what they like you to think and believe.  Oh and you're free as well. Autonomous indeed
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Forget your club , what about the country you live in being heavily associated with them ? You going to leave the UK bad boy ?

Bad boy? Grow up. I am a middle aged man. As for leaving 'my country' I am constantly embarrassed about the country I live in for many different reasons including the selling of arms to the Saudis and many others too numerous to mention.

Tell you what we should get Matt le tissier in as our next manager, we need a free thinker at the top
2 Midfielders in the next window.

Another midfielder and a forward in the window after that. And probably another young CB in the same window.

Anything else is negligent.

Jesus fucking Christ we haven't half picked up some amoral gobshites in recent times.

How the fuck has that happened?

The club, with it's rich history and recent success is a beacon for all kinds of football fans with opinions different from each other. You can't call them amoral when almost all the developed world supports the middle east in some way or the other.

The gatekeepers of selective morality will just have to get on the streets and protest, while wearing standard chartered t shirts.

Personally speaking, I want us to continue with the self sustainable model we have built, as it reaffirms our great work on and off the pitch, but I won't stop supporting the club if it results in a Saudi takeover.
