    Not being funny, but in request, this was deemed as a ‘Private’ Liverpool In House only area to discuss Oxlaid primarily.

    I think I’ll have to find another place purely for LFC and LFC ONLY!

    Nil, as we’ve discussed on here previously due to the compact nature of the site there aren’t currently any purely Club sites on Footyplace as there aren’t enough posters to support individual Club sites on Footyplace even a Liverpool Club site which is why all threads appear on the main site.

    “I thought Liverpool would be beyond this. It is the action of the small not the big.”

    This is kinda inflammatory. If you want to call our club small, I think that’s pretty funny because it’s quite the opposite. We have 5 Champions League titles. We are one of the biggest clubs on the planet and honestly, we’re a much bigger club than yours in all but financial backing. If you want to qualify that then you’re supporting a wallet.

    watching us win the CL in 05 was the most magical and incredible night of my football supporting life. Nothing has come close to it. I know that City have something huge in the chamber also, with the Aguero goal. That literally made my hair stand up on my neck. it’s one f my favourite non-Liverpool footballing moment but I;m not the one saying that one club is acting like a small club.

    Now, as you read the above you may think it’s said with bitterness, I’m writing this to be clear because I can’t put an inflection on this. it is kinda firm but I hold no grudge. I am just making a point.

    As for the whole FFp discussion, it is very obvious that City and PSG are getting massive amounts of money in an indirect manner. They’ve bypassed FFP in technical terms and apparently also broken FFP rules. We’ll see about the latter but the former is as plain as day. City were getting silly money for sponsorship deals and the like before their name even suggested a fraction of the value. If we’re going to talk about how small LFc apparently are then we’ve got to look at this.

    Fact is, all that juicing and we’ve given you a run for your money up to this point. I don’t think we can go any further really but who knows, maybe we’ll win the title. Another Leicester /s

    Mak, you make a lot of good points in your post @ 1:21am on Adlab’s “I thought Liverpool would be beyond this. It is the action of the small not the big.” whether he was right or not to couch it like that isn’t he claiming in what he said that Liverpool are a big Club and not a small Club that’s the way I read it anyway. Cheers 999

    Mr. Makaveli

    “I thought Liverpool would be beyond this. It is the action of the small not the big.”

    Or “I can’t believe a club of Liverpool’s status would lower themselves to do this”

    From how I read it there was no slur on Liverpool, however I don’t believe that statement should hold water, as it shouldn’t be below any club to report cheating or insist on it being investigated, in fact it should be applauded……Pagan

    UEFA, Fifa anf FA when they need some petty cash to keep there expenses going they think….who can we fine to day,,,or let us make a rule where we can cash in. What they fail to do everytime is support the lower league clubs. As to der Spiegel…they are in it to sell print and win some obscure award..I would have thought they need to look at there economy a little more

    Pagan that’s a great point and I agree. If you look at when we broke the rules and Southampton reported us for our approach on Van Dijk. Did anyone call them out for doing that? of course not.

    On the title of this thread, going forward we need a rich oil baron to take over the club or we will continue to fight for top 4 & challenge the rich clubs every few seasons. That’s not a shot at FSG, they have been great owners & done everything they said they would but it’s not enough when your competing with pretty much unlimited funds.
    Yeah I know ffp, cause it’s made such a difference so far hasn’t it.

    Oz, , Yeah I know ffp, cause it’s made such a difference so far hasn’t it.

    City already been fined £16m and had their CL squad reduced , have limited their spending this season to just over £6m net. And are currently under further investigation by UEFA.

    Woo 16 mil, that’s 5 bucks to you & I. Reduced C/L squad, so they have a couple less top quality internationals on the bench, that means they can be fresher for the EPL.
    They only spent that this season because their squad was so far ahead of everyone else that’s all they had to spend. Our mob pushing them a bit this season will change that, they’ll spend big again next window & we’ have to follow if we want to keep up.
    Either way they’ll be up around the top again next season mate, the useless FIFA could put a season long transfer ban on them & they’d still be up around the top, their squad is that far ahead of the rest.

    Probably Oz but if City get a transfer ban like Chelsea have and a European ban as well they might the gap will narrow still further to Liverpool and United.

    Maybe mate, other than an oil baron owner that’s the only way I can see we will keep up let alone get ahead.

    Oz, City are under the cosh with FFP and are allegedly under the same investigation as Chelsea re the signing of young players and we all know how that ended.

    Football is cyclical Liverpool dominated, United dominated and neither seemed catchable but ultimately both Club’s fell behind.

    City even without the above won’t dominate forever and replacing Pep which is almost certain to happen over the next three years and it could be accelerated if UEFA and FIFA actions are succesful won’t be easy.

    Im not writing off our ability to compete in the future. I don’t think we need oil money to spend £100m in the summer. I mean we’re not far off City when it comes to first 11 comparison. It gets worse for us after that but 1-2 top signings this summer without losing anyone and we’ve improved our chances. Even then, we’ve run them close this time, so far anyway. I mean, if we can turn our dodgy, inconsistent form around RIGHT NOW, the title is still maybe winnable.

    City could win the rest but they might not if other teams don’t throw their matches like watford. If we have gotten this good without oil money, we can do a little better without it too.
