Last night, news emerged that LeBron James had officially become part of FSG – the owners of Liverpool.
The wife of FSG CEO JW Henry, Linda, tweeted the news – and many Liverpool fans jumped on it immediately – as you would expect!

Messages like, ‘Agent James do your thing,’ ‘Mbappe to Liverpool confirmed!’ and ‘Sign Haaland and Mbappe, Linda!’ flooded the replies – which you can see in full by clicking on the tweet.
In the summer, Liverpool need a top level centre-back and an elite centre-forward – but we’re not sure LeBron will have much part to play…
Perhaps a phone-call here or there could whet the appetite of a potential signing, but getting a blockbuster deal done is a far more complicated process than that – and will likely rely on the club’s finances being in rude health.
If we miss out on Champions League football for next season, we can kiss goodbye to the chances of signing a superstar, not that that’s been the club’s style anyway.
Our money is on Patson Daka for the striker, by the way.
