Summer '09 Transfer Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

He's the one I wanted. I think he would be absolutely perfect but I did not think Rafa would go for him. This news is very encouraging and if we did manage to land him, our team will improve massively.

He was in Turin yesterday, so if some of the big Italian clubs are after him we got no chance because we cant compete money wise.

 

I know he was singing the praises of juve after it was revealed that they were interested. I'm not convinced he'd be able to handle the premiership, but i hope we get the chance to find out.

I just want us to go for someone that can beat a man regularly and to me that's not silva. He's got a good shot on him though and very good first touch and eye for a threaded pass. But his crossing doesn't seem that great. He'd be a good backup to gerrard though as he can play behind the main striker.

 

Isn't it???? I've seen him beat his man many a time, that's one of his strengths quick feet and pace.

I think he will end up going for about £15m due to Valencia's current predicament and that would be a bargain considering the prices some people have been going for in recent years.

Anywhere from 15 to 18 million would represent good value imo. He is the right class of player and we do have the money to compete for his signature. Reported 30m, money from keane deal and further player sales suggest we have.

I wasn't overly impressed with him last summer.

 

Some excellent touches at times but I was left a bit disappointed by him.

 

Maybe my expectations were a bit high, I was expecting a Spanish Ronaldo / Messi

 

Very 'in' and 'out' of games IMO.

That is very down to his age, IMO... when he reaches his mid/late twenties his consistancy should be there.

To be honest before the Euro's I'd have said the same, but he was outstanding. Also Robinho has convinced me he'll have an impact. Whatever faults Robinho has my biggest fear for him was not being able to handle the physical side of it. They were completely unfounded and gives me hope that with Silva if he has a better attitude would flourish.

 

Lets hope we can afford him.

 

I was basing my opinion on the Euro's mainly

 

Didn't think he was all that.

Personally i have,nt seen enough from him to suggest he will be the player that supporters are craving for. A guy to beat a couple of players, thread a pass through or get to the byline

 

Having seen him mainly at the Euro,s he just looks more like a link player than anything else. I rarely if ever saw him go by a defender. I can see why Rafa would go for him, he,s sneaky and plays little deft through balls and his technically very good.

 

He was a good supportiing player. Would,nt be my type of forward.

 

Of all the top clubs he could go too, i think Rafa would the best coach to get the best out of him. He would have a clear game plan for him and i think he could do well!

He can do all that and more. His crossing is excellent.

i've never really seen what the hype is about.

 

From what i've seen, if he was english i dont think he's be rated any higher than downing in that position.

 

I barely watch la liga though, so maybe i am missing it, but from what i've seen i wouldnt be expecting too much and that fee is too high.

If he says he'll only come here then it'll happen.

 

He'll speak to all the boys and think about playing with Pepe, Xabi, The Kid as well as El Jefe, Stevie, JC and he'll probably think I fancy some of that.

 

I'm sure Ballague will be along shortly...

I doubt he was in Turin yesterday as he is currently with the national team in Madrid preparing for the Turkey game on Saturday.

 

For what it's worth after the friendly against England Morientes was in the Spanish TV studio and the presenter asked him who out of the Spain squad was the most talented. His answer was Silva!

 

Well as Riera has done on the left, I think Silva would be a definite improvement. He may be small but he's no pushover. Actually he can be a bit nasty if the mood takes him.

    • Macclesfield Town, as they are my home town team. Sadly I don't think they'll be in existence much longer, unless things change dramatically. 
    • I'm sure the cunts will still bang on about their invincible season and conveniently forget all the records this team of ours have broken. Mancs will be the same, banging on about the treble and 20 titles, ironically forgetting that they claim Liverpool fans just live in the past. Football fans in general just love to troll and they go way over the top in the UK to the point that it reflects the toxic nature of the country. It happens abroad as well, but on a much smaller scale, in fact it's not that noticeable unless you go looking for it. 
    • That game last night was littered with mistakes, simple passes going out of play or to the opposition, both defences showing a lack of understanding with one and other and wild challenges purely down to bad decision making. I can only envisage a load of pain for Arsenal fans next season and I doubt Leicester will by vying for a top 4 finish again. 
    • We've got a few youngsters with tremendous potential who could be about to have a breakout season. But that's not as interesting to some as waving huge cheques about.  I understand that, I get the general frustration. But the combination of FSG and Klopp's track record suggests they know what they're doing. Some seem to be more concerned with other clubs signing players - who gives a fuck what they do ?  They fucking need to sign quality just to catch us up ! I get the distinct impression some are less concerned with genuine team development than they are with a new shiny mega expensive signing.  That somehow we need to spend as much as others, or be seen to be failing.  Total bollocks. I knew Klopp's track record, I had absolute confidence in him from the day he signed.  And he's exceeded my wildest expectations.  He puts faith in his players, and it obviously works as winning 4 trophies in 13 or so months is no fluke. I can't blame FSG one bit for being cautious, nobody knows what the immediate future holds and it could be potentially suicidal to go splashing large sums of cash around when you don't have a guaranteed income to back that. Yes we need to continually keep trying to improve to stay on the perch we took so long to get back on, but it doesn't necessarily need to jeopardize the club's future. Ferguson did it at United, it could be that Klopp may emulate that now.    
    • Even if we hadn't played Leicester twice, it would be impossible for Lallana to play against us anyway. The player registration for this season is closed.   It was the right thing for the club to extend Lallana's contract until the end of this extended season. You only have to read/listen to how he's thought of at the club to appreciate why that decision was made. (That equaliser at Old Trafford certainly earned him the extension too, imho).   Also love the way Jimbo Pearce only Tweets out half of the comments made by Klopp regarding potential transfer activity:
