We're offloading players to balance the Konate fee.

I really don't see any other first team ready players coming in during this window.

We all know how FSG work.

You never know Keita ight surprise is all this season as he should get more game time with Gini gone - if he can stay fit.

FSG seemed to work quite well with Alison and VVD both of who cost world record fees for their positions when bought.

When Keita is fit Klopp often plays him, he is just not fit often enough. How do FSG work? Last year they bought 3 players, 2 first teamers. This year they bought Konate of course they will buy another player if Klopp wants one or two.

Another season of the comedy “football” stylings of Naby Keita, sigh. Hopefully the Penny will drop within the club that he’s utterly hopeless and be sold next summer after another disappointing season. £50m down the khazi.

Slop slating our best player on form.

No he’s absolutely spot on. Keita is not good enough and has been nothing but a waste of time and money. Also, even when on form he’s not even close to our best player.

West Derby Wanderer, you do realise that Coutinho’s fee paid for Allison and VVD.

I'm going to get behind the lad - if it wasn't for his injury record he'd be a far better player than Wijnaldum by now. Hopefully he can avoid any more lay-offs, and fulfil the potential we saw before he signed.

IPC12 - you took the words right out of my mouth there!

WDW obviously doesn't realise that fact.

Markp08 - let's just wait and see. What I posted above is my opinion of course, and I could be wrong. 3 weeks to go to see if I am or not.

Our form player it’s embarrassing to even hear or see people say that! Friendly games they mean Notting mix b match team against the same!
Keita is a klopp dud buy as 02 has said klopped cried for him and he got him he will stick by him too most disbelief!
That lad needs a solid boot in the hole!

Kieta hasn’t been on form since he signed for us. He got his big move and big pay cheque and went straight into semi retirement.

He’s a liverpool player who represents the club. Maybe afford him and the manager and the club a little respect! Fans? You give us a bad name. Sometimes things don’t work out as we all hope they would. That doesn’t mean you should turn into an arsehole because it’s hasn’t gone to plan. Fan = supported not some childish boo boy who knows f all about f all.

We can’t sell Keita because no one will buy him but let’s keep abusing him, that’ll make him play better.

15.) 08 Aug 2021
08 Aug 2021 15:54:24
I know Keita had a torrid time with injures and never really lived up to his true potential with us. While I'm fine if he's sold, but if he's not, let's hope he finally comes good. At the rate that we're signing players this season, we really need the existing players to step up. Rant all we want, if you love Liverpool, stand behind the team. Otherwise, you're free to support PSG or City.

Posters like IPC12 and KBL amuse me. Do they think that the acquisition and decision to sell Coutinho was nothing to do with the club's management.

You lot are embarrassing. constantly slagging off players and the owners. Really tiresome reading it all. Its called support for a reason and you lot clearly ain't supporters.

Aye, its embarrassing all right. Its like nearly willing him to fail just so some can be proved right. Weird!
Its a week until the season starts, if he stays then support. He certainly won't get any better ridiculing him.

We’re in year four of the Naby Keita project and he’s shown nothing in competitive matches in the previous years to suggest he’s got what it takes. It baffles me how people can be so gushing in praise and effusive of someone who has never put even a minute fraction of the hard work and effort that Gini Wijnaldum did and yet Gini used to come in for a lot of grief. If Keita left tomorrow, the club would not miss him, however I can be sure that Gini will be missed as he was reliable, always match fit and put a shift in, all things that Naby has never done.

IPC12 and KBL. In the 2 transfer windows we purchased VVD and Allison 'with the Coutinho money', we also purchased Keita, Fabinho and Shaq.
With other sales, we actually spent £70ish net, taking into account the Coutinho fee.

Just wondering how FSG work - enlighten me.

26.) 08 Aug 2021

IPC12 I understand that outgoings at least notionally help balance the books and fund incomings yes.

I also understand - at a basic level at least, having sat at the back of the class when we did maths at school - that FSG invest in assets when they see an asset adding to the value of the club. I also understand that some assets are purchased based on the forecast return from future revenue streams. Over the past 18 months one of the revenue streams has been severely impacted, and as of now continues to be so. So, we don’t have enough money, or certainty of sufficient future match day revenue at the moment to ‘splash the cash’. Even if we did we are also stuck because of the issue of home grown / non-home grown players. Can’t say too much about this because I dropped geography before o-levels but I think it has something to do with coming from Widnes or further away.

I think though, given FSG being a company that is keen to make a profit on their assests and with the proof of the caliber of players they have brought into the club, the state of the art training complex they have built and the upgrades to the ground which will see us with a 67,000 capacity (and more income for us to all play wannabe Premier Manager each transfer window) that they deserve a bit more respect than they sometimes get on these crass threads that people start because we haven’t bought the latest name that some hack with no knowledge thinks up.

Anyway on we go - I read a bit earlier that we are thinking of bidding for some 34 year old Argentinian who is a feee agent …….

Don’t buy a Porsche if you can’t afford the petrol, John. If someone somewhere could really clarify how one of the most historical clubs, biggest names and very recently super successful with many record breaking sponsorship deals do not have a pot to p. in?

I did this management course a few years back and they were banging on about data leading to information leading to knowledge leading to wisdom and one of the things they covered in passing was a little thing about knowledge :

There are things you know that you know, for example, your name, address, date of birth.

There are things you know that you don’t know, for example how Margaret Thatcher got elected

There are things that you don’t know that you don’t know, for example as a football fan how the finances of an international brand Premier League football club works ….
