Moshiri came a bit too late I think. Had he arrived when Liverpool were struggling under Rodgers, maybe the year Chelsea faltered, united' transition...

Our actual net spend was more the previous 2 seasons before Moshiri came in. If I was Rom or Ross this is what id be pointing out. All the talk of there is no limit to where we want to go is all paper talk so far.

2016/17 - 21,600,000
2015/16 - 27,700,000
2014/15 - 36,500,000

Appreciate hes still only been in just over a year but we need to start showing our ambition in the transfer market and not just talking about it, he has had 2 transfer windows to put a mark down.

Thank God someone seen what I've seen. Moshiri hasn't proved anything in transfers so for. If we sell barkley and rom it will be at least 110 mill. Then we will spend 100 mill and moshiri will say look at the money I have put in the club. I hope this not the case this summer.

Correct. Anybody can put up canvasses around the ground.

Anyone can wipe £80m debt off the board in one swipe. Fraud.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

I posted a while back that the spending on players after sales is only 20 million plus, give or take. The fans will start to question the amount being spent on improving the squad, if it doesn't show a significant increase this summer.

I think net spend is pretty irrelevant to be honest. (Except when it comes to the books).

For years, if we sold a player, we wouldnt have seen all of it reinvested as a general rule of thumb.

If we sold Niasse and Cleverley for £20m and bought Klaassen for £20m our net spend may be zero but our team has improved dramatically.

And that's all that is important. "Are we stronger now than before the window". As long as money is released to allow that to happen then we are doing the right thing.

(And that isn;t even taking into account that someone paying £50m for John Stones comes nowhere near to equating to £50m in our bank account. For fuck sake, the £90m for Pogba takes into account £41m going to his agent)

I honestly think any footballer who's going to allow his agent that sort of cut from his transfer fee, has to be pretty stupid.

"AT LEAST 110 mil" ? How do you arrive at that number ? Max you will get for Barkley is 20 mil,
Lukaku maybe 70 mil max.

The debt hasn't been wiped off its been transferred.

Saying you want champions league is the same as saying your teammates are shit. And in the same way it implies that you think your capable of playing at a higher level whereas your team mates aren't. That may be true but why would you say that?  It's a shit house thing to say, especially when you hardly stand out against them in hard games.

The thing I find the most hardest to take re this thread is how quick we are to lamblast one of our players, not give him the benefit of the doubt, question his ability and generally slag him off......all without any knowledge of whats actually happening.....

jeez even Moshiri has took a slating in this thread....


it makes good reading and passes time on here....but patience is a virtue...

Interest free. He's not going to wipe it when that would mean giving the other shareholders 40m

Moshiri has been fantastic so far. Progressed the club on and off the field
