Sky Sports journalist issues not so subtle dig at Barcelona with Liverpool transfer comparison

Posted by

There was a time when Barcelona was clearly there or thereabouts at the top of the food chain of domestic and European football, though their fortunes have taken something of a nosedive in recent years.

The proposed revival, led by former midfielder, Xavi, has yet to reap major rewards, with one winter window signing, Adama Traore, comparing poorly, as noted in a tweet from Artur Petrosyan, to Liverpool’s latest addition to the forward line, Luis Diaz.

Whilst there’s no questioning the ability of the former, it seems the two clubs have traded places when it comes to the quality of their recruitment, with the Reds having hardly put a foot wrong during much of Michael Edwards’ tenure as sporting director.

Having enjoyed a superb first-half of the season with FC Porto, we at the Empire of the Kop are particularly excited to see how our Colombian sensation adapts to the challenges posed by the English top-flight.

With our forward line – specifically, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Bobby Firmino – having already racked up an impressive 54 goals between them (across all competitions), the prospect of more goals with the addition of Diaz has to be a frightening one for rival fans.

Given how careful we are too when it comes to bringing in a January signing, we’ve a more than sneaky suspicion that this is the kind of acquisition that could turn out wonderfully for Liverpool.

  1. LFC is strategic in the market and it sounds good!! That’s the kind of business that pleases us.. Thanks to the Scouts who made it and possible and FSG for splashing the cash 💸…

  2. Rest assured FSG won’t have “splashed” any cash.

    The summer will no doubt comprise of mainly sales first, whilst our first choice midfield targets disappear over the horizon to other clubs.

    1. FSG invest in the structure of the clubs eg training ground and work on stadium. Unlike Utd owners who pay themselves a dividend each year (and without which Utd would have broken even last year) + they didn’t spend to buy the club, instead loading the interest onto the club itself. FSG are no sugar daddy but get real before you repeat the misinformed view. We have been allowed to spend what the club generates and they work on increasing what the club can generate
