Some Liverpool fans have once again turned on club owners Fenway Sports Group following a tweet from James Pearce.
The Athletic reporter has claimed that the Reds were in the market for defensive targets Ben White and Ben Godfrey but their asking prices have been a red flag for the club (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom).
Who would you rather see start alongside Virgil van Dijk?
Jurgen Klopp’s side stormed to their first Premier League title last season after a runaway streak saw them brush aside any competition with ease. However, as they prepare to defend their crown, some supporters are lacking faith due to the fact that Liverpool have made just one senior signing this window.
Kostas Tsimikas signed a five-year deal last month after Olympiakos agreed an £11.7m fee for his departure (via BBC Sport). He will serve as backup to Andy Robertson, with Klopp now having two natural senior left-backs. However, many fans feel that there are still other signings to be made and the lack of investment isn’t going down well.
One supporter thinks it ‘all started when we sold Torres’, as Liverpool cashed in on the Spaniard for £50m in order to fund the arrivals of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in 2011.

Always the price with our sell to buy owners…lol
All started when we sold Torres to a rival in other to fund signings of Carroll and Suarez, just like every fan, Suarez thought he was coming in to partner Torres not knowing our owners had other plans. 😂

i’m not about to keep supporting this team like this, it’s hard to watch what’s going on, this is sad, leeds won the championship and are going ballistic, we won the prem and seem to can’t pay for anything

To be honest, can anyone help me understand this but last year 2019 made no signing & only in 2020 we bought Kostas + Takumi for a combined £18m but past two seasons amassed a total of £324m. Yet we are struggling to sign Thiago🤷🏾♂️

Every deal that is more than 10 mil is “prohibitive” for us. It’s really embarrassing
