It's a result of the clubs disastrous season they had to rethink instead of using 120m on one player they need a massive rebuild because of their negligence to refresh the team and keep us competitive. No trophies and no deep run in the cl means we missed out on millions of prize money. I honestly have no issues with them backing away, the lad is gifted no denying that but I'd rather we buy 5 players with that same amount. The issue again is failing to refresh the team by Klopp and co. What a missed opportunity to build a lasting dynasty and gain dominance over the league and cl.
We are just acting as a mid table team when it comes to transfers, in fact, nothing new. We might win a trophy one day, but, it would be by chance. The 4 teams ahead of us + Chelsea have been and will keep on investing more than us, so we might not be regularly in the top 4 which would be completely logical. It's normal to reap what we sow
