The FSG has since released a statement on the report confirming that there may be potential for new investment.

John W. Henry and FSG bought Liverpool in 2010 for a fee reportedly around $343 million.

Under FSG, Liverpool have won the Premier League title, the UEFA Champions League, the Club World Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, two League Cups and the FA Cup, as well as a massive recruitment overhaul and arguably one of the best decisions in Premier League history. -league by hiring Jurgen Klopp as manager back in 2015.


Fenway Sports Group statement on possible sale of Liverpool

“Recently there have been a number of ownership changes and rumors of ownership changes at EPL clubs and inevitably we are regularly asked about the ownership of Fenway Sports Group in Liverpool.

“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become a shareholder in Liverpool. The FSG has previously stated that, subject to the right conditions, we will consider new shareholders if it is in the best interest of Liverpool as a club.

“FSG remains committed to Liverpool’s success both on and off the pitch.”


What’s going on here?

The above statement seems to suggest one thing: we do enjoy owning Liverpool, but we would also very much like someone else to pump in the money needed to compete with Manchester City, PSG, Real Madrid and others.

The owners of Liverpool have been known for their incredible personnel policies over the past decade, such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Andy Robertson, all of whom came for relatively little money and are now superstars.

But competing against Man City to win the Premier League and European football’s heavyweights requires a huge investment, and the FSG is probably looking elsewhere.

Considering how well they have run the club over the past 12 years, it would be a shame to see them walk away completely and let someone else take over.

Perhaps it’s not about a complete sale, but about selling a large part of the club to help with additional investment in playing staff? Considering how close they were to winning the quad last season, Liverpool did almost nothing wrong, but with an aging squad, more investment will be needed in some areas.

There’s a lot of talk around the USMNT reveal on Nov. 9, and Gregg Berhalter has some really hard decisions to make.

It’s clear that the Stars and Stripes team has a few troubling moments as they prepare to head to Qatar.

Who will start in the center of defense? Who will start ahead? Will all their stars be in full form to face Wales, England and Iran in Group B?

Given the recent results and performances, there is a lot of pressure on Berhalter and the USMNT needs to get started quickly.

Below are the options and our forecast for the USMNT unit.


What are the big dilemmas Gregg Berhalter faces?

The same areas that have been a problem for the past few years: centre-back and striker. Walker Zimmerman will start at centre-back, but a place next to him is in question due to Miles Robinson’s injury. Aaron Long struggled while Chris Richards and Cameron Carter-Vickers both got injured last month and couldn’t get valuable reps along with Zimmerman. Richards has since confirmed that he will not be ready for the World Cup. Can veteran Tim Rome be drafted given his excellent form at Fulham? This is an opportunity.

There is a huge debate ahead around Jordan Pefok. Most fans think he should be called up, but Berhalter didn’t call him to the last training camp and opportunities were instead given to Josh Sargent and Ricardo Pepi. Jesús Ferreira seems to have jersey #9 at the moment, but the USMNT has really lacked a clinical finisher since the heydays of Clint Dempsey, Josie Altidore and Landon Donovan. This is a big problem and perhaps one of the many talented attacking midfielders they have could play in a false nine?


Which players are on the bubble?

It’s one of Shawn Johnson and Ethan Horvath for the last roster spot, and it looks like Johnson just got ahead of Horvath at this point.

Tim Rome is having a great season at Fulham, but doesn’t seem to fit what Berhalter wants from a centre-back. Surely Rome should be on the team? Eric Palmer-Brown right on the bubble.

Luca de la Torre is injured and if he is not ready to play, expect one of Johnny Cardoso, Malik Tillman or Christian Roldan to be called.

At the top, it looks like Berhalter isn’t a big fan of Jordan Pefok, with Josh Sargent and Ricardo Pepi able to sneak into the team ahead of him. Jordan Morris and Paul Arriola look like they could sneak in too.
