Congratulations to Liverpool winning the league. They were outstanding and thoroughly deserved it.

Their success should not come as a surprise as they have everything in place-something that we are clearly lacking. A world-class coach, supportive owners, great scouting team and selling their players well.

Let's not forget that last season, when liverpool nearly won the league, they invested heavily. Over a period of one and half seasons, they spent:

van dijk-75M
fabinho-40M
Keita-52M
Shaqiri-13M
allison-56M

They didn't just buy players, they bought world-class players. I am sad it will never happen under kroenke.

Agree0 Disagree0

Those figures look big but as you say we sold to, couts for over 100m and then fringe players like Ibe and solanke for fees around 15m and 20m.

But who cares we are champions of England and I’m absolutely buzzing!

But they also sold, check out there net spend.

Didn’t we spend a similar amount on Pepe, Saliba, Torriera, Tierney and Leno. who spent better then you have Ozil, Granit and Mustafi.

The other side of the argument is letting Rambo go, Sanchez or Myk. they sell better also.

Liverpool reached the champions league final before spending big.
They lost the champions league final that season but came back from that disappointment to win the champions league the next season
Last season they hit an unbelievable 96 points but somehow still didn't win the premier league but they didn't feel sorry for themselves they came bach even stronger and won it the very next season.
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool football club have earned and built their success and any big signings only came in once outstanding foundations had already been established and they had made a very hansom transfer profit before the really big investments were made.
What has been achieved at Liverpool has been down to one man uniting the fans players staff and board behind his ethos where he demanded nothing less than 100% effort 100% of the time from each department.
An unbelievable achievement in such a short space of time, Just shows what is possible without the huge spending having to come first.

We used to be held up as a role model club in terms of - financial model, buying well, selling at right time, getting good money and great scouting. We just aren’t there.

I think City and Chelsea purchased their trophies from money outside of running a good club / business.

I think Liverpool are where we were. Big club which has a financial benefit over others but generally well run, buy / sell well and play nice football. I think they are the role models now and I don’t begrudge them winning but rather see them as the blueprint for us.

Attitude, fast great football, difficult to beat and strong financial footings. Well done guys.
