Hi, another season with fresh hopes on the horizon for all the Liverpool fans all over the world. I had been checking every other hour for an update on the internet for a new transfer news.I feel we did really good business during the transfer window and what i like most is that we bought players as early as we could so that they can have a proper pre-season. here we can take a look back to the signings and money spend by our club since the new owners took over.- it is relevant since some of our fellow supporters are complaining about how overpriced our new signings are.
There are certain things effecting the valuation of the player,
1. How much club depending upon the player.Have a look at Henderson and carroll prices they were important to their respective clubs, especially Carroll, Mike ashley never want to sell him, but signing somebody in the place of Torres was really important for our club’s pride. Carroll was the best possible we can chase in that 11th hour.
2. Length of contract remaining-You all know about what i meant here
3. Age-For the last few years clubs are getting substantial income for talented young players. This is a reason why I Feel arsenal going to struggle with their policy. Earlier teams like Arsenal, PSV Eindhovan, FC Porto and Atletico Madrid who were dominating in finding the raw talent and presenting before the the world. They were fetching huge return on their transfer.For example take a look at number of teenage French,African,English players played for Arsenal, Portuguese speaking for Porto and Spanish speaking for Atletico Madrid. Those times are gone, now every big club is having scouts or agents allover the world.So these clubs doesn’t hold that monopoly anymore.
Alright now let us see How was our Business during the Transfer Window.
first we can take a look on the income side
Torres – £50 mil
Babel – £5 mil (though it is undisclosed)
so it is 55- (I am not counting the sum we might have received on Konchesky… and some other deadwood)
Suarez- £22.5 mil
Carroll- £35 mil
Henderson- £16 mil
Adam- £8 mil
Downing – £20 mil
Enrique – £5.5- £6 mil
So total it is £107.5 mil
Now we can do the valuation of the players
Torres – £25 mil( After the performance for the chelsea)
Babel is a £5 mil player.
so got a profit of £25 million on player selling.
Suarez- £40 mil
Carroll- £20 mil
Henderson- £8 mil
Adam – £13 mil
Downing – £15 mil
Enrique – £12 mil
we got players worth £108 million for £107.5 million
So we can say we spend £107.5 mil and received £55 mil. So we got all these players for Net £52.5million.
So money well spend.
