It seems that after the crazy money which was spent by Kenny Dalglish in his recent reign as Liverpool boss, the owners of the football club have decided to curb the big spending era at Anfield. John Henry has issued a letter to the fans claiming that, while he was disappointed not to replace Andy Carroll, he would also not jeopardise the clubs finances
The letter read, "We will never place this club in the precarious position we found it when we took over at Anfield,” before adding, "I am as disappointed as anyone connected with Liverpool Football Club that we were unable to add further to our strike force in this summer transfer window. But that was not through any lack of desire or effort on the part of all of those involved.”
"They pushed hard in the final days of the transfer window on a number of forward targets and it is unfortunate that on this occasion we were unable to conclude acceptable deals to bring those targets in. But a summer window which brought in three young, but significantly talented starters in Joe Allen, Nuri Sahin and Fabio Borini as well as two exciting young potential stars of the future - Samed Yesil and Oussama Assaidi - could hardly be deemed a failure as we build for the future."
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers did hope to replace Andy Carroll with Fulham’s Clint Dempsey but the American international stayed in London by joining Tottenham Hotspur. Liverpool will now have to try and make do with what they have and hope their first league win of the season is not too far away.
