The injuries to Fabinho and Joel Matip may ultimately change things but for a long time in this transfer window it has appeared that Liverpool will not sign a centre-back in January. So where do they really stand in terms of football finances in a week that has seen them climb into the top five in the Deloitte Money League, moving above Manchester City? Matt Addison is joined first by football finance expert Kieran Maguire and then by the Liverpool ECHO's football and business writer Dave Powell to discuss the latest economic situation at the Reds. On the agenda are Nike, Kylian Mbappe, transfers, Anfield, revenue and more as the guests provide insight into the situation - and whether the current scrutiny of FSG is justified. The show concludes with a chat about Billy Beane and RedBall Acquisitions, with a deal to sell part of FSG to the company having now collapsed, and also the Boston Red Sox and how John W Henry and Co have coped with the pandemic at their other major sports enterprise, with reference to how that could be applied at Liverpool.
