Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are extremely pleased to be praising FSG on their club’s recent financial results from the last year. Overall revenue at the club has increased by £62 million to £364 million and they’ve also received a reported profit of £39 million after tax, despite signing six first-team players.

FSG purchased Liverpool for a reported £300 million back in October 2010 and cleared all of the club’s acquisition debts that had been racked up by previous owners, though haven’t always enjoyed universal support from fans around the world.
In the seven and a half years since FSG bought out Liverpool, the club have won the League Cup in the 2011/12 season and also spent two seasons in the Champions League. The club has also made a number of marquee signings in this time, more recently bringing in Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton for a world record fee for a defender and Mohamed Salah from Roma.
Under current manager, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have looked more likely to a win a trophy than they have in recent seasons and, with the club’s current transfer policy, it’s clear to see the red half of Merseyside are gaining a real identity on the pitch. Indeed, it’s something that could propel them back to the heights of European football that they were once at.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the positive financial reports.

Goes to show you can build something properly and still make a profit. Clubs like Liverpool and Spurs showing the way.
