Agreed. LFC and the Red Sox are separate entities with separate payrolls and financial structures in place. One has nothing to do with the other.Not 100% sure but I thought I read that, despite the same owners being involved, the clubs are in no sense financially related.
Also I would have thought Liverpool make more money than the Red Sox in advertising etc worldwide. You won't find too many non-Americans who can name 10 baseball players. It would surely be more important to keep Liverpool competitive than the Red Sox.
LFC is very profitable and when the Nike jersey deal finally arrives it will only become more so. Certainly winning the Champion's League and being current participants also greatly enriches the club due to all the monies that entails.
This to note.
2019 summer spendings of Manchester City: £141.2m.
2019 summer spendings of Liverpool FC: £1.6m.
Current PL Standings.
Liverpool FC 1st place.
Manchester City 2nd place.
Hmmm. A certain disparity in spending vs performance that's almost poetic justice, isn't it?
