Look on this link at the two seasons Dalglish has been in charge. Season 10/11 where he played a bit part Liverpool spent £80m on transfers and recouped £85m leaving a profit of £5m. Season 11/12 Liverpool spent £56.4m on transfers and recouped £21m. Therefore Dalglish has spent £35m on players, then you need to subtract the profit Liverpool made last summer of £5m and they've give him £30m. He's been in charge for 3 transfer windows so he has spent £10m on average each window. Considering we're on course to equal the 58 points Benitez achieved in his first full season at Liverpool and on course for 2 domestic cups, that is outstanding success. We've also managed to greatly improve the squad and now have plenty of options on the bench. Congratulations are in order. The cost to Liverpool for Carroll is more like £3.5m over 4 years when you work everything out.
