So if the nett spend over the last 4 windows is £30m, can we assume the owners are fed up of spunking huge sums on shit?
Once again, the striking thing there is Liverpool have the 6th lowest nett spend.
Didn't know Brighton's nett spend was that high either.
indeed. It's been mentioned before, but Coutinho = Alisson and Van Dijk looks like the best bit of business in Premier League history for the impact of the signings on the team. And Kevin Stewart = Andy Robertson.
As also noted before, they keep getting dolla for average players - like the £19m Bournemouth paid for Dominic Solanke, who still hasn't scored a league goal for the club, and only got one for Liverpool. In fact he has bizarre career stats - just eight career club goals, but nine for England U21s, and ten for the U20s.
Genuinely think you'd be nowhere near where you are right now without VVD...amazing signing!
Brentford have a similar data-based recruiting system as Liverpool...Utd are considering Cavani who has had 4 separate injuries in the last 5 months, stats padding in the French league (equiv Rangers or Celtic in the SPL),he's 33 and never played in the much faster and physical EPL
What the fcuk about all that suggests he will be successful
Indeed. Liverpool's scouting operation is top drawer (headed up by our own Barry Hunter, which having spoken to him a couple of times frankly amazes me!). When they signed Mo Salah, there was hardly a host of clubs queuing up for him, likewise Firmino. Wijnaldum thought in most circles nothing more than slightly better than his relegated Newcastle teammates. And so on.
