    If you are measuring Klopp and FSG - there are a lot of unanswered question... and the Right manager is one of those questions....
    I don't think the problem is that much the manager as the bunch of players we have, our transfer politics and overall competence to identify the right players. Its a recurring problem that have been there during several managers.

    No matter which way you will twist this/it, its a fact.

    The worst part about it, is you actually think, as a Liverpool fan, you are actually owed this, based on past success. I'm not sure if its arrogance, or ignorance, but it surely is comical.
    Do you not think we should be winning trophies and challenging for the title?

    Then you need to create a team first that have a continuity at the top before they can push for the title, and that would even be hard

    I think it will happen again - not sure when, but

    Leicester made the most of the opportunity - they did what was needed, they overcome the obstacles in front of them

    However

    It was always gonna implode - it was not expected and they didn't have the infrastructure to build on it.....

    Whereas - we fail coz people forget the prime ideal - winning - instead we try to be all things to all people and being a jack of all trades instead of a master

    Redfoot does.

    In regards to our 'successful'. I think we are where we are. Expectations are different now. We are a minimum below 3 clubs in the league financially and squad wise.

    People want instant fixes. There are no instant fixes for a club that does not have the funds the others do. Unless there's a billionaire waiting to pump all their money in, I suggest we back to gaffer and board.

    Pretty much. Especially the top six.

    Man u, Chelsea and city just happen to have a huuuge advantage over the rest.

    Then there is arsenal who have the two decades of stability. Then there's spurs who are a London club and one that has hit the jackpot with kane and alli.

    Then there is us.

    So there are six teams with three with a clear huge advantage over us. I don't think we will ever be what we were like in the 80s. I don't think any team in England will be like that anymore.

    But that's not the point. The idea that somehow Liverpool FC should be winning trophies is nothing more than reliance on past victories to push this - but Liverpool has no more a divine right to win trophies as does any other club.

    Would I like to see the team win, and win all the time, sure. But so would every other fan want the same with their teams.

    FSG will be rubbing their hands with glee

    a billion pound club with no trophies and a miserly spend of 164m.....

    Spurs net spend average over the last 5 years...

    £410k

    It's not just about the net spend.

    I just came across it it was a interesting calculation for a owner to ask for 1bn club that they have invested so little

    Some on here get very upset when you say anything bad about our tightfisted owners.
