The money being splashed around in football is staggering, but the Premier League has become an arms race. Now you have to keep stockpiling the best talent otherwise your rivals will do it. In order to beat the big spenders, you have to outspend them, it seems.
But Liverpool fans are becoming impatient with their team, the speculation has been mounting that Alex Teixeira would be Liverpool’s marquee signing this January, and as the speculation has risen, so have the views on youtube videos of Alex Teixeira’s best moments.
But it’s now looking like Jurgen Klopp will have to wait until the summer to get his man as Shakhtar don’t want to sell until the summer unless there is a mega bid from Liverpool to trigger a reported buy-out clause of £53m.
Some fans, it seems, are taking matters into their own hands in order to persuade Teixeira to come to Anfield. Although you’ll probably catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, this one Liverpool fan seems to favour the approach of minority threatening to the Brazilian winger in the hopes that he’ll commit his future to Liverpool in January.

Alex Teixeira had better sign at once or else he risks losing a follower! Maybe Jurgen Klopp and Ian Ayre should think about using this tactic more often in order to attract their man. It’s a thoroughly modern technique, to be sure, threaten the player with a hit to his follower numbers, after all, losing followers is a modern-day nightmare!
