Add to the potential Adam Bogdan free signing as back up GK and LFC have been so far 'underwhelming' for star names. Milner would have been a good signing especially on a free a few seasons ago (at the age of 29 I really do not know who would authorise a deal especially the owners wanting 'moneyball' signings) As for Ings he has scored more than the likes of Balotelli, Sterling, Sturridge and Lambert but how toothless LFC have been this season doesn't take much! Depending on how much the compensation is if things do go wrong for Ings at LFC I am assuming a profit may be made?

 

Also noticed that Barcelona have 'signed' some one even though under a transfer ban, the mind boggles why anyone would sign for a club and rule himself 'ineligible' until January?

The days of Liverpool being a "big club" are gone.

 

Their supporters can harp on about their history all they want. Never won a premier league title. Even Blackburn Rovers have!

 

Their thrashing by Stoke. Their cup exit to Oldham a couple of years back. Their inablity to attract top players. No bigger club than a Newcastle, Southampton, Swansea or dare i say Stoke, right now.

Suarez single handedly almost won them the league. When his form tailed off in the last 6 games of that season, so did Liverpools. Proven this year.

 

Delude fans, manager, owners. Its funny to watch.

Gerrard says he hopes the owners back Rodgers! What. With another 200 million quid?!!

 

They are an absolute laughing stock. And long may it continue.

I actually think the signings of Milner and Ings are good signings, they certainly strengthen the squad. However they will only be good signings if Liverpool can bring in 2/3 world class players which I just cant see happening. I will give Rodgers credit though for the amount of English players he signs.

A laughing stock that very, very nearly won the league the season before last, playing absolutely fantastic football in the process. Even coming 2nd was a big achievement as nobody predicted it. Suarez made a big difference, obviously, but to insist that he was the reason alone for Liverpool having the season they did is just nonsense and extremely simple minded.

I don't know what some people are expecting. Liverpool can't compete at this moment in time for the best players around, even more so without the lure of Champions League football this season. I don't rate Milner at all but he's a very decent signing as a squad player, hence why Arsenal were in the for him too amongst others, and Ings is a better option than the likes of Borini, Lambert and Balotelli. He has a goal in him and that's what Liverpool need more than anything else. Ings is no worse a player than Dirk Kuyt who was an excellent servant for the club, despite his somewhat limited ability.

Until Liverpool or any club for that matter have a gazillionaire owner who's prepared to spend money willy nilly on players from all over the glode a la Chelski, Man C and PSG etc they won't get back to their former glories, it's all about money these days.

Milner is an international player who offers consistency. His skill level has been improved by playing with top players at Man City. Ings is young and may improve markedly. He is a signing consistent with Red Sox strategy. They could be building a team that without champions league football can push in to the top 4. Need to offload the B problem and keep their best players.

Because rules don't apply to them. They're supposed to have a one match ban with the stadium being closed since 2002,Nothing happened. Last week Elche got relegated for not paying a tax bill which is about 1/100 th of What Barça owe to the tax man. What will happen ?,Nothing. They get away with it by claiming the moral high every chance they get. There's a chance that 4 out of the last 5 presidents could end up in prison at the same time. And don't get me started on the **** they pull with the local government....

Or alternatively, the transfer isn't going through until the ban is lifted. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good rant

Liverpool about to sign Firminho, a full Brazil International and a very exciting young player. Obviously he's Sterling's replacement but is perhaps a more complete player as of now and will also give Liverpool an extra 20 million to further strengthen the squad, which after the signings of Milner, Ings and Gomez is now taking shape. Another forward is a must as we can't rely on Sturridge to be fit throughout the season, along with a couple of defenders. We've been strongly linked with Nathaniel Clyne and I think he would be an excellent purchase.

Finally that looks like a very good potential signing and as you suggest it would give them a potential profit of 21 million and possibly a better player.

 

What is it with Liverpool and trying to pinch the Saints best players and turning them all to ****? :laugh:

You've got a bit of credit where it's due. You feeling alright? ;)

 

The deal has been confirmed this morning so that's a cracking bit of business by Liverpool if they can also milk the best part of 50 million for Sterling from City. I'm a fan of Sterling, I think he has world-class potential and my opinion hasn't changed even if his attitude stinks, but he's nowhere near worth that sort of money at this moment in time. 20 million would be more realistic, even more so coming off the back of a disappointing season by his own previous standards.

 

Also, the move to Liverpool has yet to work out for Lambert and Lovren but it would be unfair to put Lallana into that category. He had a good few games last season where he played well and showed some of his ability. But he didn't have a pre-season and was then trying to play catch up in a hugely under-performing Liverpool side while also picking up other niggles that would keep him out for weeks at a time. He's a clever player and Rodgers either must use him correctly and play him in his best position to get the best out of him or not play him at all.
