New low for Liverpool & John Henry as Klarna ruthlessly mock FSG chief online

Posted by

Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, have long been mocked for a perceived unwillingness to invest in their Premier League club.

From policies on sustainability all the way through to the latest (and perhaps most devastating) failure to land Borussia Dortmund’s generational midfield talent in Jude Bellingham.

Tapping into that sentiment, Klarna (yes, that Klarna) poked fun at principal owner John W Henry with a cheeky tweet reply to David Ornstein’s update on the Reds’ pursuit of Dominik Szoboszlai.

Whilst it’s fair to acknowledge that Liverpool do, categorically, spend less than the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, it can’t be denied that much in the way of investment has been poured into the club beyond our efforts in the transfer market.

Two efforts aiming to renovate two separate stands (the Main Stand and Anfield Road End) at Anfield have boosted capacity from 45,500 to 61,000, plus there’s the move from Melwood to the brand new, sleek AXA training facility.

Could the club be more ambitious in the market? Especially at a time when there is no wiggle room to get things wrong with the midfield department? Yes on both counts.

Likewise, however, we’d be utterly foolish to suggest that our owners haven’t improved the general fortunes of the club on and off the pitch following George Gillett and Tom Hicks’ disastrous stewardship.

  1. I think it well past time of dumping the rather tired comment , ” George Gillett and Tom Hicks’ disastrous stewardship”. Try something new and more up-to-date please.

  2. The minute someone brings up Gillett and Hicks in defending these owners FSG, I lose all interest in what you have to say as I feel you the “journalist” loses all credibility.
    If we are setting the bar so low that all the new owners had to be were better than G&H then I worry about your general standards and expectations for this great club.
    There are two types of con artists; one that pretends to the money and the other that pretends it doesn’t

  3. Although having two virtually new stands and an increased capacity it is on the football pitch where FSG’s ‘reign’ will be judged. Another season like the last one would be disastrous for them andthey are to blame for that, as it was o9bvious to every supporter at Anfield that our midfield was slow and predictable, Liverpool were crying out for new players, we get Carvalho who currently is too lightweight for the Premier League, Melo, least said about that one the better and sorry but as good as Thiago is, he’s fast approaching his Sell By date. We put all of our eggs in the Tchouaméni basket and we know where that ended up. Now FSG need to get their respective fingers out and put their money where their mouth is to get the prospective deals over the line.

  4. strong signals that we are headed for another massively disappointing transfer window which will result in a complete collapse next season. Not even EL anymore, 100%.
    It is one thing to say that wisely we are staying away from the over priced English players such as Bellingham and Rice and quite another not to be able to even bring it home on established quality players in the 50-60mil range. If our new level is 35mil max we are done in the PL. we would then be better off to become the new Dortmund or Brighton only investing in cheap very young un-tried player and hope for the best.
