"LFC are famous for fighting 110% til the whistle. My problem with FSG is they have shown they will write off a season before xmas because a sponsor tells them to, like they did after evragate. We had a dead man walking manager for 6 months with his hands tied and mouth gagged, and being made the scapegoat by our own fans for the 9 out of 14 losses, when a bit solidarity was needed. Unforgivable."

Sadly big clubs can have players who cost over 10m on the bench or even played sparringly. Take Utd, Nani, Jones, Kawaga and so on. Similar with City and Chelsea.
