lol no disrespect intended, but you can find 500 combinations of 96 and 1989 from the seasons when we haven't won the title.

Its all down to players attitude and how BR comes up with his tactics.

I asked this question the other day and nobody had an answer for me. I was just on espn uk website and saw a clip that said Chelsea have 28 players on loan! 28!!! Just buy as many young talents as you can possibly get so that your competitors can't sign them. It's pathetic! That means they own 40-45 players! Teams need to stop taking these Chelsea owned players on loan. Just fueling the practice of buying everyone up and putting them on someone elses books while still owning them. Is there any limit to how many players a team can have on loan?

Whats to stop these oil-rich teams from just buying all the young talent throughout Europe up and loaning them out? Making it super difficult for teams like LFC to find some good young talent without being held ransom to having to make a shitty deal with Chelsea?

On the flip side of the coin, why would you ever want to go to Chelsea if your a young talent? I guess money more than anything.

LFC have to be the most attractive team to young talent in the up coming window. We really need to capitalize in this transfer window to maintain our high level of play. United can't be as bad as this year and will spend heavily to try and right a sinking ship, Arsenal will take up fourth as always, Spurs can't really go anywhere but up, and City and Chelsea will spend loads again. Even with City probably violating FFP. Fineing a team for violating FFP rules; that's just hilarious.

I think something should be done about that. Fair enough if they are home grown talents, but buying young talents from their local teams around the globe ruins not only our chances but more importantly the whole economy and league of their origin.

Living in London, playing for a big team, earning good money can lure a lot of young players.

Also regarding the City fine, that is just ridiculous. I had no idea about that until I read your post! How is that going to stop them?

IMO, they should be banned for one year from buying players. This forces the team to work with what they have and out of the habit of buying superstars all the time.
+1
Even chelsea fans are amazed by the sheer numbers of loanees we have. The fact is the club see this policy of buying young players and loaning them out as a form of investment. I think Chelsea is trying to compete with the spanish clubs who have B teams. I read somewhere that the english youth\reserve leagues are not competitive enough. Currently there are no rules that limit number of loanees so Chelsea is taking advantage of this.

My opinion on this is that Chelsea is really overdoing it.

B teams would be entertaining as **** ;)
Geekwhu, how about Chelsea use their ACADEMY! That's how most respectable teams invest in youth; within the club. Chelsea have/had a lot of good youth and could bring them up through the team if they weren't so dead set on buying every world-class player that's currently at their prime. Chelsea are just buying anything and everything that seem to have talent. Not even using them for their own club, but holding the rights to these players. I'd be embarassed if I was a Chelsea supporter; for a number of things, definitely including these shenanigans.

I see Chelsea f*****g over another team by just coming in and buying their best player again. Shame, cause I really liked seeing Atletico challenging for the La Liga title. Guess this must have to be their year.
Using your acadamy is great but I wouldnt say what Chelsea is doing is the worst thing, The most important thing for a young player to develop is by playing regularly week in and week out at as high a level as possible, its better then having the player on the bench waiting to get an oppurtunity, we have reaped the rewards from players like ,De Bruyne, Lukaku, Piazon and Thorgan Hazard all have been(KDB) and will be considered for the first team). Imagine how much less De Bruyne market value would be if he didnt spend that season on loan in Germany and stayed trying to get a place in the Chelsea team, we bought him for 8 million and sold him for 17 million. Unfortunatly our players from our Acadamy havent had that much success on their Loan deals like Mceacren at Swansea or Chalabah (Good loan at watford but still needs to play at a higher level), If these guys performed at the level of (KDB, Lukaku, ect) Im sure they would be considered for the first team.
Imagine a Liverpool B team vs United B team match in the championship.. awesome !
So these young talents that they buy are just commodities? Buy them, raise their price and sell them? Use the money, along with miliions upon millions out of the owners pocket, to buy big name mercenary players to win cups?
You missed my main point which is that these loan deals help devolop and improve the players, how much game time has Aspas or Luis Alberto got since they joined you. this naturaly increases their price if we choose to sell them however not nessassarly all will be sold, Lukaku or Courtois is an example of someone who has got a great shot at the first team, Our loan deals benifit both the players and the Club.
+2
Yes, I understand why teams loan young players out. Usually clubs loan a few youngsters out to gain experience and COME BACK AND JOIN THE FIRST TEAM. Chelsea have 28 players on loan! You named TWO that possibly have a chance. How many of them actually come back and get into Chelsea's the first team? Actually, why don't you enlighten me, when was the last time Chelsea loaned someone out to get experience and brought them back into their first team?

Lukaku will be sold. Chelsea are buying Costa. Chelsea loan him out to raise his price, sell him, and use the fee as some of the money towards Costa. That is the exact business plan I spoke of above.

Aspas and Alberto don't get any game time because they are not the quality LFC want on the field. We were forced to buy someone cause we had zero depth. It's kind of hard to do proper business and get the players you want when clubs like Chelsea just come in and offer more money. cough....Salah....cough
We bought Salah for 11 Million, not really a sum that LFC cannot afford, Think of all those players we buy and send on loan as an Investment, Like with KDB even if they dont make our team we get a profit from what we first spent on them, I dont see why your team cannot do the same.
Clap Clap Clap. There we go Kaiba. "Think of all those players we buy and send on loan as an Investment, Like with KDB even if they dont make our team we get a profit.." That's called a business plan. Not building a football team. How are any of these young talented players going to make Chelsea first team when they go out and spend 100m on world-class players every window? Now we're not talking about doing this with a few hopeful first team talent players. We're talking about 28 loans.

I'm sure Chelsea offered Salah a decent bit more per week than what we were trying to give a 21 year old coming out of the Swiss league. But, money is no issue at Chelsea as we all know.
Maybe Chelsea should have just loaned Matic out and let him grow into a first teamer. Oh, wait they did. Then sold him. Then bought him back for 21M. lol ridiculous.
My point is its a win win situation for us, if he does make our team we gain a world class player and if he doesnnt we dont have anything to lose and neither does the player, mabe it is a business plan but its a pretty smart one and one that is most top clubs can easily afford to do. You guys lost salah because you didnt want to take a risk and invest in a 21 year old by spending 11 million, Like we took a risk spending 8 million on a 19 goalkeeper year old playing in the belgian league (who turned out to be one of the best keepers in the world)
everytime i see the celebration after manchester city game

i surely hope henderson doesnt take it so bad.. he did well... and i will always suupport him

Andrea Pirlo on Istanbul '05:

"There are always lessons to be found in the darkest moments. It’s a moral obligation to dig deep and find that little glimmer of hope or pearl of wisdom.

You might hit upon an elegant phrase that stays with you and makes the journey that little less bitter. I’ve tried with Istanbul and haven’t managed to get beyond these words: for f*ck’s sake."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2604647/ANDREA-PIRLO-EXCLUSIVE-I-quit-losing-Liverpool-Champions-League-final.html

I don't normally buy biographies, but Pirlo being one of my favorite players and these bits I've read have changed my mind. Seems like an interesting and hilarious read :)

" To most people’s minds, the reason we lost on penalties was Jerzy Dudek – that jackass of a dancer who took the mickey out of us by swaying about on his line and then rubbed salt into the wound by saving our spot kicks. "



HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA xD I love it!

Future of Liverpool

Sterling( 19)
Coutinho (21)
Stuzza (24)
Hendo ( 22)
Flano (21)
Suso( 20)
Sakho(24)
Illori(21)
Kelly(23) if he gets his S*** together
I didn't include any one who hasn't played as a starter for a top flight league in Europe or anyone above 24.
+2
Ibe started against QPR last season (final match of the season) and he's 18. Teixeira didn't start, but he had a pretty solid cameo at Fulham and his pass led to the penalty that won us the game. Alberto has had a several decent sub appearances as well (assisted Suarez' 2nd at Spurs) and he had a start in La Liga with Sevilla (in '10/'11 season).
+1
You forgot.
Wisdom (20)
Ibe (18)

Even though they have been loaned to none top flight teams they deserve a mention.
+1
Have they impressed enough though?
+1
I was impressed with Wisdom, the games he did play he was out of position but played with passion and was aggressive

and Ibe scored one hell of a goal vs preston but thats all i remember about him lol
+1
Pretty sure Hendo is 23, but yes BR is doing a great job with our youth. Long may it continue.
+1
I was very impressed with the little I saw of Ibe. He seemed very talented and confident on the ball, he deserves a chance in the near future.
+1
don't forget Stevey Gerrard (33) - he'll be 45 before he retires if he has his way :P

seriously, dude's a legend. Get him the EPL this year, okay?

Go Liverpool!

(Red is also Bayern's colour so it's only natural to cheer for you guys)
+4
No one rates Teixeira, he is very good as well.
Stop taking to heart what other clubs supporters have to say about us. If you don't like it then don't respond, you will never change their minds or win an argument with someone of lesser intelligence without looking dumb yourself. Just laugh at the comments :).If what I am saying has no truth then you can tell me to flip off. #StayClassyLiverpool

well done mate. #RESPECT

Thats what I do :) #Respect

And if anything said against you is ever over the line please just hit the report button under the comment box. There's an old adage about feeding trolls and it really does ring true. Let the mods take care of trolling comments, it'll be gone soon enough. And if no one responds and makes things worse, the forums will be filled with way less annoying fights and boring mod talk ;)

Want to hear something that might amuse you? Utd thinking they'd be able to get players like Koke, Kroos, Reus. They'll be able to purchase more world beaters this summer similar to Fellaini, Cleverley, Young lol
They have the financial muscle but so do clubs like City, Chelsea, PSG, Barca, Madrid...

if even one of those clubs wants those same players United won't be getting them.
+1
Yea you are right Dan, players like Fellaini, Cleverley and Young all contributed to an amazing record breaking season for United. Players of the caliber of Kroos and Koke know that they are incapable of replicating this feat, so I doubt they will even be interested in joining United.

United should aim for more world beaters, I am sure a forward like Anichebe must be in Moyes' radar, and I hear Scott Parker is unsettled at Fulham, he could be a steal for them.
+1
Yes, I believe they have the financial muscle to buy these players. The problem is that they will turn from world class players to floppy players when they play for MU under Moysey "The Chosen One"
+2
Shut up guys, I'm sure Toni Kroos is dreaming of Europa League nights at Old Trafford.
+4
tbf, if you have the money you can always buy whoever you want. take city for example, they bought silva and yaya in 2010 when they didn't have CL.

obviously city had/have the oil money and utd don't. still they pull in tons of money and 1 season without CL isn't going to matter much. now i don't know their financial situation but I believe they are still servicing high levels of debt so handing out above 200k wages the smartest idea? then you also have to consider what happens if they miss out on CL again.

also like Colin said, if other big clubs are also in for a player they will struggle. Especially considering there are more clubs being run by billionaire owners these days.
+1
Well, they were certain to sign Gündogan and he just extended his contract with BVB :)

Kroos is probably using the Utd intrest so he can get a better deal at Bayern, just like Ronaldo did with RM.
