Great points, and Klopp's statement about the situation yesterday was a total embarrassment. They are defending champions and they are already in full retreat and the little fella has not yet put pen to paper.It is.
Even without us signing him, he has come out and said we are the only club he will go to. We are the only club he would trust.
To me this is huge. Messi’s stance is the biggest endorsement of our management and ownership from football’s greatest marketing asset.
That plus the CAS ruling is a massive kick in the bollox to the Cartel.
The media are struggling to paint us black because we are largely keeping silent and letting Barca embarrass themselves and Messi talk us up indirectly.
We are fighting huge odds to actually get him. But from where I stand it’s others including Ex player pundits and Klopp etc that are making fools of themselves.
They’ll all conspire (Cartel Clubs) to do their all, to ensure we don’t get him.
If this happens. If Messi makes it happen, this is absolutely huge.
And I was not particularly in favour of buying him at any cost. City are playing it cool though. This has raised our profile already.
Those candle sellers on merseyside are going to make a killing again!
