I don't follow Italian football, but has Bobby Duncan had anywhere near a look in yet?

If not, what was the point in him throwing his toys out of his pram?

{Ed002's Note - Doing well and proving he was right as he would not have had a chance at Liverpool.}

He's only played for their U19's hasn't he Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but they are pleased with him.}

So not that well then Ed's? He was doing pretty much the same at liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - He had no future at Liverpool - none. Club policy is to buy success.}

If it buys us the title then its an ace policy.

These cheap digs over the last two years are both dull and wrong. The policy is not to buy the league.

The policy (forced, changed or otherwise) has been to spend money made on sales. The teams that have bought the league in most recent history are Man City, Chelsea and ManUtd - all of whom could buy within reason who they wanted without having to sell players first. That is the buying the league.

But don’t let the truth get in the way of facts shall we.

Agree 1jj, it is very tiresome but never stops. like a 2 year old, funny for a while but then also very irratating.

I agree with that JJ although I think what Ed2 revels in is that interview when Klopp said something like he’d quit rather than pay stupid money for players (can’t remember the exact quote) .
We did spend a lot on VVD and Ali in particular and Keita and Fabinho but would we have done so if we hadn’t sold Coutinho? Plus that was followed by us signing no big players last summer to balance the books.
If you compare that to City they can buy Laporte, Walker, Rodri, Bernardo, Mahrez, Mendy without sacrificing any of their other main players. If all things were equal City would’ve had to sell De Bruyne or Aguero to enable them to sign those players.
That for me, is the difference between buying the league and using your existing assets to generate the funds to improve the squad enough to win the league.

Your missing the point. I was 24 the last time we won the league and i know exactly what i was doing and where i was. I did not think i would have to wait another 29 yrs. So if we buy it great, if we fluke it great, if we win it with 10 games to go and are down to 2 fit first teamers great. I don't care. Spend, spend, spend i say.

He was well thought of and doing well here. He would've been playing u23s with us and probably played in 3 first team games this season including starting the game tomorrow for us. Instead he had a paddy, got got way more money, moved to a nice place, and plays u19s football for a tinpot club. With less chances than he would've already had by now if hed had patience and humility.

Well said Jezza Kyle. He had already played a few times for u23s last season. And made a few appearances for 1st team in pre season also. Good riddance! He never played the last 6 months at city, before he joined us so has history of certain behaviors. The lad Galatzi was the better of the 2 for u19s. Nut he picked up bad knee injury in 1st pre season game unfortunately.

I think under Klopp are net spend is about £70m in this day and age success comes cheap with Klopp. hahaha.

In this case Ed002 seems to be absolutely right. Our club does not want to jeapordise the chance of winning the trophies by playing the youngsters. If Brewster can't get a game, and having seen his chances become even more reduced by the imminent Minamino signing, what chance would Duncan have had at any game time with us? Yes he acted as an idiot with the bullying claims but that doesn't falsify any fears he or any youngster at the club has over not having a proper chance at winning a place in the squad.

It's tough for youngsters to break into a title challenging teams. Trent was the last player to get a chance with us and that was over 2 years ago. And he only got a chance because he was exceptional and Clyne and other RB options were inept.

Duncan did the right thing by leaving. It's just a shame he didn't leave in an amicable manner. The vitriol from the fans toward him is unwarranted.

Though I agree with the sentiments about 002's comments, there's no point talking money with him. You'll quote figures about net spend and he'll rightly point out that we're just looking at headline figures that are often incorrect. He'll then go on to detail the actual figures and we all end up looking like muppets :)

Gomez and Alexander-Arnold never got a chance either or Curtis Jones.

Bobby duncan has played 8 times for Fiorentina kids and scored 3 goals, 0 assists, 1 yellow card, 1 red card and has been subbed in 6 of those 8 matches and has not scored in 6 of those 8 matches either.
So he's not doing that well is he.

Sorry but I felt for him. He didn't want to disrespect Liverpool. Its was his agent. He simply wanted to play. As ed02 pointed out, he would have been behind Brewster.

I like the Gerrard connection. The lad has scored a crazy amount of goals where ever he's played. I'd have like to had kept him.
