We just received the following from Spirit of Shankly, they are right on.
Welcome to the great LFC January giveaway. This month we have a once in
a lifetime (well until the next transfer window) special offer to fans.
We will be selling 4 members of the first team squad and replacing them
with just one player. This offer runs for a limited time, subject to
terms and conditions (i.e. That whilst having to offload players from
the wage bill and recouping transfer fees, the manager can’t have this
money to spend).
Whilst the above might sound flippant, it is also true. For the 3rd
successive transfer window, LFC look like they will have a minimal net
spend and the manager not being backed as promised – we are still
waiting for Snoogy Doogy.

silverware along the way. Instead, we find ourselves selling simply to
pay down the debt – a debt we didn’t want and were told would not be
placed on the club.

market is over-inflated in a World Cup transfer window” briefings to the
We may be wrong. Tom and George might be about to do a sudden u-turn and
splash the cash, backing the manager and helping move us forward on the
pitch. But we doubt it.
So go on then Tom and George, prove us wrong!
