Liverpool Thread 2012/13

4 wins out of 10 games against some of the weaker teams in the league?It'd be okay, but I'd be far from delighted with it. Should be a minimum, IMO.

Surely that's three quarters and not 3-4 games?

i think 18 points is a realistic goal atm for them 10 games and that will put us on 30 points, 3 ahead of what man u are right now.

thats ****ing diabolical tbh.

We are being done a favour by the fact 4th place is wide open this year and no one seems to be throwing a good run for it. Hopefully we can stay in touch through December and sign a couple of players in January. Then with any luck, kicking on from there might end up being a productive season.

i'd say Everton are making a very decent run at it, but their squad is also pretty small, so hopefully they'll mess up somewhere along the way.

Everton are favourites for 4th in my eyes, closely followed by Spurs. Arsenal are ****.

Arsenal have the best team of those 3 atm in terms of squad I'd say, it's all about whether Wenger can get them to work or not.

Not denying that, but they are playing soo bad at the moment. Everton are playing really well, and if they can stay injury free then they are favourites I think, but its all about them not getting one or two bad injuries.

They also need to hold on to Fellaini in Jan.

it is improbable that a jan window panic signing will salvage this season for liverpool, even if someone arrive I dont think it will help the team finish much better then 7th or 8th anyway.......it might even be better to wait for the summer, do some proper scouting and make sure you get the player you need, while giving the youngsters a proper chance until then

just because you desperatly need someone in a certain position doesn't mean whoever you get is a panic signing, and no idea why you think signing someone in jan doesn't mean they haven't been scouted and aren't who you want

So what about when we signed Suarez in Jan after selling Torres? that wasn't a panic buy, not going to comment on Carroll tho ;). maybe Dalglish actually think he is good, he would still be playing upfront if Dalglish was at the club.. I actually feel a bit sorry for Carroll the way Rodgers has just condemned him with out even giving him a chance..

It wont last with Everton tho, Couple of there better players will move by the summer, they may have money to spend but id say it's back to mid table after this season.

isn't that sort of the definition of a panic buy? just the mare fact that you desparatly need to sign someone would indicate there's a certain amount of panic about the whole thing and that there's a risk you will rush into buying a player that might not improve the squad at all

What about desperately needing somebody, but putting the research and effort into ensuring that you get precisely the right player? By January, Rogers will have had 4 full months to plan his transfer dealings, so there shouldn't be any hint of panic at all, unless the players he wants aren't available at the prices he wants, in which case he may have to go down his list a little. Either way, it's hardly panic buying.

Unless he buys Bent. :mad:

One thing Bent can do is score goals. The rest of his game is poor in my eyes.

A few years ago I'd be understanding of Liverpool fans scoffing at the thought of signing Bent. But where you are now, he wouldn't be that bad of signing. Seemingly not wanted by Villa, suspect they'd want him off their wage bill, potential to strike a decent deal with them.

He's a good player, no doubt, but I don't think he fits into our intended system of play at all. We really wouldn't use his strengths at all, and he'd be another big money flop.

Used correctly, then of course he's good enough, but it would be too much to the expense of other players in the squad.

I wouldnt be concerned about that. We make enough chances from outwide. All we need is someone to finish chances. He has great positional sense and Suarez outwide would pull defenders in to uncomfortable positions; creating more space for Bent.

Having seen the Being Liverpool thing, I think we're more David Brent than Darren Bent.

Newcastle interested in Carroll again, so if they buy him back for half the price, we could get nando back for half the price. Jobs a good un.

They also need to hold on to Fellaini in Jan.

It would take a record transfer fee for a holding midfielder, something in the range of £30M+, for us to part with him (considering we rated him at £25M before his ability got widely picked up on).

That will literally never happen. Nando won't ever come back to us again, he has no reason to.

only if you panic while doing it. IF BR takes all of Sept, OCt, Nov and Dec to find a number of players he wants, weighs their pros/cons and availability, chooses his target, and we go out and get him at a decent price, then what's panicky about that?

It's the Liverpool transfer law that we can't even consider transfer targets until 3pm on transfer deadline day. To be fair things have got better, at least our MD doesn't decide to go on holiday during the transfer window and turn his phone off... that's progression.

Why didn't anybody celebrate, or seem to look pleased when Luis got the equaliser the other day? Everybody looked like they were jogging back to the center with heads bowed. I've only seen the gifs so maybe I missed something, or maybe I'm just reading too much into it but it did look bizarre when he was left completely hanging.

Gotta love all that rubbish about Suarez not chipping in with the goals.... but yet he's one of the guys leading the goalscoring charts at the moment

I prefer it that way, we should only be celebrating if we are winning games anyway, the way they are playing at the moment and the result we are getting means there is nothing really to celebrate.

Same with a lot of the stuff thrown at Luis, the rest of the country will say anything to portray him in a negative light.

In my opinion a team should celebrate together. A team should also be celebrating a late equaliser at Chelsea, especially in a game pretty much everybody expected to lose. I found the whole thing pretty strange.

The celebration was odd. Especially when he turned around expecting people to be running over with him and realised nobody was there :D

In those next 10 (well, 9 not inc Spurs), last year we won 2 drawn 1 and lost 7(jesus ****). This will be our time to claw points back. Especially now we are seven points worse off than last year in fixture comparison.
