The crux of this for me is what this summer looks like in comparison to those summers after finishing second when we bought badly and sold a key man.I won't believe it until I see it but there's definitely potential to do so if injuries pass these players by and they continue their progress curves under Klopp. Hopefully Liverpool win Champions League this season and players get another reason to stick - because all the players who will leave are those who barely contributed, either due to lack of quality or playing time.
I'm not saying that Man City will suddenly be ten points weaker because Kompany and maybe Sane will leave - they have almost literally all the money in the world and Guardiola to make that impossible - but another summer of adding quality would be a dream after all these years of losing key players.
To show we've really stepped up as a club, we have to keep all our key players and sign at least one or two top quality players to add to what we have.
This 97 point so we don't need to do anything argument is just plain wrong. There are issues for all to see, we just did well despite them, mostly as we were lucky with injuries.
A 4th quality forward without selling Bobby, Mo or Mane is the bare minimum I'd accept as an acceptable summer.
