    Gerrard's benchmark.

    Really - that's the best you've got? I bow in awe!

    I used the football rate of inflation not the government lies - my pint analogy is more accurate to football inflation! 🍻🍻 I also note you ignored the points about squad strengths and football changes!

    Gerrard's benchmark.

    Just for the record (using my rough maths) a 4 times multiplier of £1.8m is £7.2m not £5.3m (and if a pint is now £5 the multiple becomes £9m!) - And many would say SG had to do more with that cash in terms of squad and also football economics has changed a LOT!. Sorry but you just SHOULD NOT TRY to compare the two eras - but it sounds like you just want to stick the knife in. The bit in bold 🤣

    Gerrard's benchmark.

    Aye the price of a pint was a few pennies back in the day. Terry Butcher played for Ipswich and Woods for Norwich. Players played for a lot less and we paid top of the range salaries. I'm sorry but you just can't compare the two era's no matter how hard you try. Souness was brilliant for us - it remains to be seen what lasting impact SG will have but the only things they have in common was they were both great players, both Liverpool captains and both managed Rangers. EDIT: Just checked the price of a pint in 1988 (sort of half way) - Just under £1 a pint - Now a cheap pint is about £4 and city beers nearer £5 - That would roughly mean Gerrard should get a £40m - £50m net transfer budget to match Souness. We can but dream of such figures.

    Of course - but there is no comparison between the resources Souness had and Gerard has, even more now money talks ( oh and Daid Holmes was the real architect of the ‘Sounes Revolution’

    NOPE: We were a big club financially at that time - Souness could (and did) draw on the best. It just doesn't work as comparisons. What we do have to do is realise that it will take any manager 2 - 3 seasons to build a really strong squad - SG has done better that I originally though and we can all see the direction of travel and we just need to back him for at least another full season.

    Share Issue. Significant result for us

    Sorry but that is not how it works. They still own those shares and they still have value and all shares are equal. Their % holding May decrease when new shares come in but they still have the same value as every other share.

    Morelos calls Gerrard legend and eyes Columbia recall

    Yep - will be difficult to keep hold of him - perhaps the red cards will help us keep him but that is grasping at straws I think

    Morelos calls Gerrard legend and eyes Columbia recall

    The problem isn’t playing in front off 50,000 but him being offered £50,000 per week someplace else

    Morelos card appealed.

    Fenian is a bit harsh - the rest is true - I’m also fat, speccy and smelly - your point! You win. Good luck with your wee paranoid life.

    Now you’re not even trying - I hope you were at least stamping your feet when you typed that
