    Well well well. We did make a statement.
    (I admit - It's a bit cheap as it's coming very late, but hey...)

    I really didn't envisage the statement to be in written form to the FA. That's LFC.

    Yes indeed, currently the statement the club is making seems to be less about what the thread title referred to, and more about a complete lack of competence in those tasked with our transfer activity, culminating in the statement effectively being that LFC doesn't know how to operate professionally, effectively or competitively.

    A statement can only be made after the failed transfer window has been confirmed and closed,for me when the window is shut and we've failed i will be as pissy as the next bloke but to do that now is pathetic.

    my statement is usually full of bank charges and failed/returned direct debits... any statement the club make will not make me as pissy as that ! :indifferent::?::((

    Turns out our "Big Statement" was just an apology to Southampton :-(

    Keita for £65m ish and VD for £60m ish.

    You can see it happening can't you? 2 massive statements of intent if they happen (and I'm fairly confident they will).

    Most positive thing is that it looks like keita and vvd want to come to us....

    Doesn't look like we are bidding for players who then choose another club - that has happened far too much in recent years... so we are getting players that want to play for us...

    That in itself is a statement...

    But what happens if we get to mid August and no keita or vvd?

    60m for Keita or signing VVD will be our big statement signings.

    Van Dyck is available, a lovely mover and would definitely be quite a statement... Unfortunately he is now getting on a bit... I think we'd better stick with the other feller from Soton...

    Probably the same as a Muller corner.

    There isnt going to be anymore transfers so i suppose the big statement signing is Salah.

    You never know still think van Dyke will come because he wants us but we need to put an offer in otherwise he will go to Chelski
