    Pretty sure Klopp wanted Coutinho to stay and did his best to keep him so I’m not sure it was the genius move you’re making it out to be. Worked out well though yeah.

    He “sold him” because he didn’t want to fecking stay. Stop lying to yourself.

    He punching above his weight, consistently. If he employ tactics like siege mentality, selective logic, distracting media or blaming the wind to gain advantage for his team.. Its just good management to get the damn job done. Hate the cnut, but fair play. Needs major trophies though.

    I can remember Woddy having a conference with the board, club or owners laying out and discussing our net spend. So obviously net spend does matter, because all clubs except PSG and City have a budget. Obviously taking that conference into consideration, our club cares about netspend since the glazers want to make a profit from the club. The whole thing dismissing netspend was mainly something used to take digs at Rafa at liverpool for his failures.

    Not this again!

    Net spend only matters from a purely financial point of view. If you have spent £400M on players, whether you got that money from player sales, revenue generation or your sugar daddy, you've still spent £400M on players.

    So it matters only who you buy not who you sale/lose? How does net spend not matter if it's a reflection of what is going in AND out?

    Yeah it a strange notion that it doesnt matter apparently. Netspends gives a pretty good picture of whether not the spending improves the team or not.

    If you sell a 100 million player and bring in an equally good player as replacement for 100 million. You've spent 100 million, but you have not improved the squad. So it actually matters. City or PSG would not be able to ascend with having negative netspend or small netspend, because their squad would most likely not improve.

    Well I sort of agree. We sold Ronaldo for £80m and signed Valencia for £17m. You couldn't say Ferguson did a poor job in 2009-10 because "having spent £17m on one player the team should have improved over 2008-09, not decline".

    It’s a reflection of Barcelona’s idiocy. Coutinho was a £100m plus player so why should it reflect well upon the football team? No shit they’ve improved after spending £200m on players.

    This is really really silly:

    So if Man Utd buy Zinchenko from City for 50m and City buy him back for 50m.

    Then next season the same thing happens:

    Man Utd and City have both invested 100m into their squad and improved their squad with 100m of purchases?

    It's ridiculous notion.

    Net spend and Expected goals have to be the worst things I read in football media nowadays. They're the safe escape way from anything.

    What the hell are you on about?

    If Liverpool sell Coutinho for £140M and buy VVD for £75M and Alisson for £70M, net spend £5M, but they have still brought £145M of players. What are the two new players worth, £5M? No, £145M!

    wtf is so difficult to understand?

    Generally if you sell a player, because you have an offer you can't refuse and spend all the money on a either a replacement or to strengthen other areas, you have still spent the money.

    You lot seem to think a team sells a £100M player and buys 100 £1M players to replace them, it doesn't work like that. Obviously Spurs bucked the trend by selling Bale and buying £100M worth of crap.

    Of course net spend matters. I've not yet heard a convincing argument as to why value outflows from a club should be discounted.

    Tracking assist has to be the worst thing that ever happened in football. Ruined everything.
