    Lucas

    There is a fair argument that you could 'upgrade' on most of our first 11! We finished outside the top six for 4 seasons for a reason, so yes Lucas can be 'upgraded'. But - he is still a very good player, and one of the best defensive/deep midfielders in the league. And more than good enough to play in a team winning the league, that argument is absolute nonsense. The simple fact is that we are a much better team with Lucas in it. He is better than Barry, De Jong, Tracy Chapman, Cleverly, and quite a few others who have won the league.

    Arsenal signing Ozil is a bit like ordering Paella from the Sweet Menu!

    In defence of the fannies, I suspect that if Sakho comes (which I think he will) it will be for Srtel whom I think will leave. So again the 'net spend' will be about £10m (depending on it being Moses or Yarmolenko), or if you are Dennis the real figure will be £50m.

    I see Dennis has woken up! More hallucinogenic drivel delivered as fact - we'll be reading about dildo's, hummus and llama's in another hilariously surreal description of Liverpool's transfer policy next. The Tooth is 'out there'!

    Fuck off, I could say the same about you lad - you're the same as me, a non-entity on the internet with an opinion. Just that you whinge far more. And you can fuck off as well. Rodgers said he felt we were used - but, as per usual with you - it doesn't suit, ergo it didn't happen. 3 weeks? That your maths at play again? It was over in less than a week.

    Yeah but we have pulled - we just don't deem the birds fit enough, even though they are perfectly nice and have potential to be stunners if they don't let themselves go. If you want a fit bird, you need to take the knock backs - but you also need patience - we could have settled for Eriksen, or Ben Arfa and those same fans would be criticising them now. Fundamentally the problem is that when we were looking at our best - Kenny went clubing down Bootle - sure she looked georgeous, but in the morning when the make up was gone, and the wonderbra was nowhere, she was average and, pretty much the same as all the other girls - but we spent a fucking fortune getting the tedious slag into bed and, to make matters worse we caught an STD! Now, nobody wants to shag us because we have the mange.

    So what do we do? If we cannot attract those players do we offer them astronomical wages to make the move, pissing off the rest of the squad in doing so? Do we just buy anyone? Because I can see how that will be recieved - mention Eriksen and dozens will tell you how shit he is, Yarmolenko comes from a shit league he isn't what we want! Do you just want a marquee signing? We need a centre half as much as another forward, probably another centre mid - £30m may need to be split three ways. Do you want players who will improve the team? If so, we may have take the risk and wait until January (see how Atsu and Llajic get on with their contracts) It is all very well listing players names, I would guess that some of the names thrown about have actually been discussed and have already turned us down - we have had players like Costa using us to get an improved contract! Our problems won't be solved by being dismissive and 'realistic' - the fact of the matter is a fair few of our fans won't be totally happy until the club buys a player that they like - not one that they are told is good, one that they like.

    Rodgers has stated today that we have been knocked back by for quite a few of our targets. Mkhitaryan was clearly number one which is why we focussed upon him earlier - and have moved on. Costa may not have been second or third choice but it is clear that he indicated he would move only to stay and sign a new contract. So, you have absolutely no proof that there was only two players on that list (ignoring Aspas and Alberto). And I take it you are ignoring the defensive players bought, scouted etc? It's looking more and more like our fans are a shower of whinging bitches, who will simply shift and move onto something else to bitch and whinge about until we eventually move onto the state of the catering as further proof that FSG are corrupt cunts determined to drive the club into the ground.

    I agree - he does look special. If you put the work in now, we may have a chance. I suspect Real with either get Suarez or Falcao, Lewondowski is Bayern bound. Improve the team and make a genuine effort to land him next year. To be fair - I am waiting for us to buy a 'Lamela' before he moves to Europe and doubles in price! If you are going to invest in scouting then that is how I would expect it to work.

    Muriel has said he is staying for another year. Udinese have no need to sell. So he will stay for another year. Now - I would be agreeing to sign him now. Tell us the fee and we will pay it. I would have given them Coates for a year on loan for first refusal.

    Yeah I was thinking of Eriksen. I know Rodgers has said that he would rather Coutinho player centrally but I think Eriksen is adaptable enough, and I think the way that we play wouldn't restrict Coutinho if he was to start on the left. Suarez is more than likely to start on the right, or left. As I say, you start with a list - if those players refuse you can't do much about it. Rodgers has said he has found it difficult to attract the players he wants to attract, and unlike City we ain't gonna pay the wages to make us more palatable to the fitties! In all fairness Atsu would have cost £10-15m if he wasn't in contract dispute, so I'd be fine with him.
