Just read somewhere (should be approximately true) that Liverpool are £1 mill in profit on net spend since 2014. Mental considering how much better the side, the squad and the performances are compared to back then.

According to transfermarkt.com you're about €220mil in the red since the 14/15 season :bl:
Fair enough. I was reading a discussion amongst fans and it seemed to confirm being in the black so to speak. We are certainly getting better value from our buys and sales now though than ever before. Even Solanke today has a buy-back clause I believe. Michael Edwards is doing some terrific work on player trading.

I preferred the days of Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam tbh.

Also worth noting around 140mil of that figure is from this summers transfers alone, so you've done well to get in a position to spend that sort of money.

Neil Warnock's recent claim that Liverpool and in particular Nathaniel Clyne are a disgrace,can only be Alzheimer's hitting its cruelest peak.

On BBC Fivelive they were suggesting Solskjaer has ALREADY improved Rashford's finishing. Which is frankly hilarious and stupid, but #narrative of course.

It is not outside of the realms of possibility that Solskjaer could have imparted some personal insight on the art of finishing that has helped Rashford in some small way already - Rashford is only twenty one and hasn't exactly worked under the best and brightest attacking coaches in football over the last few seasons during his breakthrough into the first team.

The general consensus on Mourinho's coaching methods is that he drills the defence and tells the attackers to do what they want when actually attacking - this wasn't hard to believe when watching how clueless we looked when attempting to build an attack during his tenure.

Solskjaer isn't a miracle worker but he is an ex-striker (at the highest level) and a coach that seems much more hands-on when it comes to the attacking side of the game. Rashford, Martial and others will be learning things all the time.

Not Lukaku, though - he's beyond help.

He's dropped the lumbering Belgian and injected the kind of pace most sides struggle against with his regular inclusion of Rashford ,Lindgard and Martial with Pogba afforded the option to push up in the hole behind the three in a similar role Coutinho thrived in with ourselves.
Discernible management .....The swine !

Salah will start getting a reputation if he's not careful.

Bit of a shame Fraser remains one off Hazard at the top of the assists list after he setup Wilson's volley Saturday. The cross knicking off a defender apparently voiding his assist.

Garth Crooks...

Mo Salah is breaking my heart. Why would such a wonderful player do something so grotesque?

He went down in the penalty area as though he had been poleaxed. Crystal Palace skipper Luka Milivojevic told the Egypt international what he thought of the charade in no uncertain terms, and quite rightly. This was before the Liverpool striker sent the Eagles back to Selhurst Park having had their wings severely clipped.

I was so disappointed in Salah but I still can't bring myself to leave him out of my team of the week.
