Ok guys let me start again. I'm more concerned about the quantity of players Lfc have bought not the quality . Yes I know we get the big names. but apart from a handful of superstars we have signed. not many have gone to the great heights we paid for them. Veron. kleberson. berbatov. just to name a few. I guess what I'm saying is why should we always pay a premium for players who don't actually make us any better. Be better to sign championship players who want to wear our shirt and play for us. And not use us as a bargaining tool with their own club. not

Are you a Liverpool fan? Better to sign championship players, I hope that's a joke.

I would be far more concerned with the quantity of the players being signed if I were a Liverpool fan. Last season Rodgers tried to combat the loss of their best player by bringing in a large volume of new recruits. The majority of these players either took time to settle in or didn't gel with the rest of the team. The result being a poor season. This year he is doing the same thing, and Liverpool will be in for a very trying opening few months as Rodgers attempts to integrate all these new players into an already disjointed squad.

We have a few areas in the team that need to be improved (rb, cb, cm and possibly a new striker depending on who leaves). The management team is aware of this, and have obviously identified players that fit with the squad and will improve us. Hopefully we will start to being in these players soon so they can integrate with the squad. I am concerned that we may be being used as contract leverage by some players, and I hope that your attention isn't being diverted away from genuine targets because of this. However, bringing in enthusiastic players who would love to play for us is not an alternative strategy. If we want to challenge again we need a few quality signings that fit with the squad and system.

We are, hopefully anyway, looking at the top of the table not at 5th and below, I don't see arsenal, city or Chelsea having signed anyone yet (cech aside) and we have signed Depay. Liverpool have signed players we obvs wasn't that interested in or willing to fight for anyway, of all the players they've signed only Firmino I'd be envious of but at what £28m. We are obvs working on transfer deals as we speak so don't panic cpt mannering (or is it manwaring, I never know).

But quantity over quality is precisely where they went wrong last season, its the opposite of what we should aim for.

I believe it's Mainwaring. Corporal Jones was the deliverer of the lines.

You are right though, some serious panicking going on at the moment. I was confident about getting all our targets sorted before the end of July but with PSG and Citeh now back in the game it becomes much more difficult.

There, s a guy works in our chip shop swears he, s Elvis.
Hope we don, t lose track of the targets we are reported to be interested in. Ronaldo would be a great addition to any team, But not if we miss out on 3 or 4 other targets who are cheaper and younger. Think it's the old Madrid mind games again, Few years ago the Spanish council wiped out 400 million debt for Real Madrid, So 14 million of tax issues is nothing to them. We had Ronaldo, he was immense for us, But let him ride of into the sunset, Let us concentrate on achievable targets.

Is there a possibility we won't get the big signings we are all hoping for because of Mourinho, He does tend to slate players very openly . Which at times this season they have deserved a putting down, but the money and fame these so called big players expect, some can't handle the criticism. I hope I'm wrong and we are pleasantly surprised at the start of season with new faces at the club.
But it's my opinion and it's only an opinion, If sir Alex was still in charge, I feel the draw of playing for Fergie would make it a little easier when trying to purchase players. I know Fergie had his run ins with certain players, But he never mentioned why and when he was being interviewed.
July the 1st can't come quick enough.
