Started a career with Liverpool FC and checked their finances, it shows they are 'Ok' and that there is a transfer budget of only 8 million.

Please can this be updated to be more realistic, we have new owners that have happily spent over 100 million and are willing to back the team/manager with further funds if needed. I bought one average player and my funds are gone, not very fun!

That's because Liverpool spent about 100m pounds during last summer, so all that money is actually gone. Wait till next season for more cash

What about the 50 million we got back from Torres sale? Should be available to spend on new players

You obviously aren't getting the point.

I'm pretty sure the owners have more than 8 million pounds. You don't buy a club for over 200 million if you only have 208 million in the bank!

8M is not what the owners have, but the amount they allow you to spend.

To confirm the only figures shown in FMH are the budget given to you - as in real-life a manager has no real idea of the clubs true bank balance - just a reasonably vague financial state, I fail to believe that Alex Ferguson gets financial account infromation for the various corporations that make up Man Utd for instance ...

There'll be more money to invest in worthy purchases at the end of the season, in the meantime you could always try and move on some of Liverpools (arguably) less well advised purchases and reinvest the money?

Have you seen some of them?! Be lucky to scrape together 5 million! :lol:

Roll on the end of the season!
