Liverpool spent 50m in 06/07 season, 22m in 07/08, 40m in 08/09, 36m in 05/06. All without selling anyone. Add it all up and compare it to us, we made profit in every single season on transfers because we HAD to.  

Stopped reading after this.

Surprise Lex didn't write this.

Stop re-writing history. We didn't sell anyone? We had to SELL TO BUY under Rafa.

You guys didn't sell your best players every year though. Reina never left, Gerrard, Kuyt, Agger, Skrtel, even Torres was only sold because of his clause.

 
That's not what you said though, was it?
 
You said we didn't sell anyone and still had the finances to bring players in; that's not true.
 
We literally had sell 2-3 players at a time to get half the players you mentioned in when G+H was in charge.
 
You could argue quality > quantity (and normally I'd agree with you) but that left our depth of the squad very very thin. We had a very strong starting XI but probably the weakest bench that's ever title challenged in the PL era. An 18 year old N'gog was our back for Fernando Torres. Lucas Leiva was 21 back then, and found it difficult to settle in England early in his career. He was the main back-up for all of Gerrard/Mascherano/Alonso because we had nobody else. That was a kid, being back-up to 3 WORLD CLASS players in a new country/in new position(s).    
 
It wasn't AS BAD as Arsenal had it (to pay off the Emirates by snatching the hands of anyone bidding for their players), but we eventually got rid of Mascherano and Alonso due to G+H. That pretty much ruined our CL chances as we couldn't control games anymore. Torres was pretty much sold because of a clause inserted by G+H aswell. Keep in mind we lost a lot of youth, and more players just to pay off debts from G+H towards the end of it.  
 
Even now, we're letting Reina go for financial reasons. Skrtel and/or Agger will leave in the summer because they're both been given 80k+ a week and they're not guaranteed first team anymore. (Well, Agger isn't atleast.)
 
We're financially stable, but we have absolutely nothing on City/Chelsea. So not too sure why Barrett brought us in, tbh.

EDIT: Read this; just the OP.

One of the better posts of RAWK. Highlights pretty much Rafa's signings.

^I brought Liverpool in to prove that you can still challenge for the league title(2009) and win a cup(Carling Cup 2012, was it?) without Chelsea/City type budget, contrary to what RG was trying to say. Wasn't comparing Liverpool to Chelsea & City.
