"nobody can reasonably ask for more than what's being done at the moment - across the board. personally i think possibly reina, downing and suarez will go, and we'll also bring in a top CM and CB. then hopefully we'll get a fair go from the refs and see what happens from there. in BR we trust!!!"

We operate a normal scouting system that look at players BR pin points or they can suggest certain players but in the end they are BR final decisions.

"BR has also signed hidden gems -Assaidi, maybe Borrini as well! LFC now as a club now has to operate on a far lower budget than 4 or 5 other teams. This is something unfamiliar to LFC. So FSG took a lot of flack and rightly so, afterall we are one of the biggest clubs in world football and an attractive investment to much richer people. "

"So all signings at present are more or less gambles on players with potential. Our world class players are either getting on (Stevie G) or naybe heading for the exit door (Suarez Pepe).

"Ani Road, you fail to acknowledge the sheer brilliance of signings like Coutinho and Sturridge - who you falsely claim - were inconsistent. Coutinho, especially, shows what astute buying is about. He cost 8m, but is far better than Hendo, Downing, Carrick, etc and is as good as Oscar - who all cost far much more - proving its not about money - but intelligence. "

Then struggled due to lack of dm Lucas being injured. I think he will prove to be a far better player than People have given him credit for. As for boring he is young and his movement is really good"

"Oh and one last point, When Man Utd go bust and they will, and we are stable and secure, we can sit there and laugh at them. You cannot spend what we dont have. We saw what happened when we did, and those owners didnt even spend money on anything, even with CL money flowing in."

24th Jun 2013 18:26
"My point exactly. You can't spend what you don't have. But you can spend what you do. Which is what fsg did not do last summer. They mysteriously found an odd 50m the previous owners spent on stadium development, and left BR high and dry. FSG isn't the club. They say they lend us money. Are we a club or corporation? Difficult to know these days. And you get slated for stating it."

The council can simply issue compulsory purchase on any "recalcitrant" residents who remain, as the regeneration plans are betterment for the public good. FSG are holding up regeneration. But then John Henry never visits Anfield so why would he care?"
mushroomscouser1013
24th Jun 2013 22:37
"The salient lines in the article are "We have always said that any stadium expansion will be subject to detailed economic and social feasibility studies" and the fact John Henry said "That's why I say that it is a myth that stadium issues are going to magically transform LFC's fortunes"...hence the wide held rational distrust of FSG. More talk of progress when there actually is none.Just talk. "
