Alisson the latest addition for Big Money Reds

You awake on a secluded Sardinian beach to a warm Mediterranean breeze and gentle waves lapping at your feet. Your gorgeous wife flashes you a smile as she updates her Instagram. You glance out at your sailboat and notice a bottle has washed up on the shore. Shaking out the rolled up paper, you rub your eyes and squint at the handwriting... Get the ale in lad, and get yer bird ready. You're a Red now! We assume such a …
Is the Alisson transfer really a statement of intent from FSG?

Is the Alisson transfer really a statement of intent from FSG?

NOPE. Simple. It's not. I am done here. You can move on now But wait, you say, how come? A world record fee bid for a keeper. Potentially getting in one of the best keepers in the Serie A and current Brazil #1. If there ever was a statement of intent, surely this is it? Well, what exactly is a statement of intent? It's when you dramatically change the way you behave in order to achieve a certain objective. The …
The FSG Spending Myth

The FSG Spending Myth

With Liverpool in the middle of a critically important transfer window (aren’t they always?), it seems like a perfect time to revisit a recurring myth amongst the Liverpool fanbase: FSG refuse to spend the money to compete for trophies. As an American Liverpool fan, I scoff at the notion that Fenway Sports Group is a bunch of cheapskates who do not like to put money into their teams. This is because FSG also just happens to own the Boston Red …
It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

It's Time for Liverpool to Get Back to Where They Belong

The whistle blew to signify the end of Liverpool’s 2017-18 season and fans felt drained. The Champions League final in many ways was indicative of an exciting and turbulent season that promised so much but ultimately failed to deliver a major trophy that Reds fans so desperately craved; but despite this disappointment that felt like a gut punch, there was also optimism albeit tempered with frustration. Klopp’s Liverpool team felt like a team, and for the first time in many …

Trust Michael Edwards - He's Smarter Than Us

It’s been a very strange and very fraught weekend for Liverpool fans. The timeline is sketchy, details are even sketchier but on Thursday night, it was announced that Liverpool had wrapped up a deal with Nabil Fekir. On Friday morning, Lyon denounced that, and rumours flooded that Fekir had failed his medical. Those rumours were largely debunked, and speculation ran rampant but the announcement of Fekir never came, until finally on Saturday night, Lyon announced that the deal was dead. …

Anfield's SeatServe - American Anfield

Anfield's SeatServe - American Anfield

Ahead of Liverpool’s enthralling 5-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, I was angered to see stickers slapped on the bank of seats promoting an app that Liverpool Football Club are now using. This app, SeatServe, allows fans to have food and drink personally delivered to their seats before the game, at halftime, or even worse, during the game. There are many moral issues with the induction of this skip-the-queue system. One is that it seems to be offering an …
Can Liverpool Balance Infrastructure & Intent?

Can Liverpool Balance Infrastructure & Intent?

On an otherwise tranquil day last April 9th, the most persistent, never-ending LFC Twitter storm was kicked off by the Echo’s Ian Doyle. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is a mere passing squall in comparison to the furore that Doyle kicked off. It was that day when his article entitled, “Liverpool won’t spend £100m this summer, it will be nearer £200m,” hit the interwebs. https://twitter.com/iandoylesport/status/857630310183424000 As they tend to do, LFC Twitter gave Doyle a lot of grief that day, and …

Disclaimer: Sorry to disappoint the FSGOut’ers, but this isn’t one of those articles. The boys from Boston will be directing the future for years to come. This is an FSG-Figure-It-Out article pondering possible paths to make the club more competitive while these owners are in place. DOUBTING THOMAS This week James Pearce did his “bad news” best to tamp down the persistent links to Monaco’s versatile winger, Thomas Lemar. Pearce cited the price tag an issue for the waning interest. …

Liverpool: Deloitte Money League Report

The Deloitte Money League 2018 was released just a few days ago, and so in this piece, we'll be looking at Liverpool's place within it, whether the club has improved financially compared to previous seasons, what affects performances, but also the wider context of how much money clubs need to compete. We'll break this article up into three parts, the first of which will simply sum up the report and its general findings, before we move onto Liverpool, and then the …
