Liverpool Thread 2012/13

Recommended Posts

i havn't seen the guy play before' date=' he is only young and from what i read he is a good attacking player that would fit our system..

Looking at this week ends fixtures i can see Everton, Chelsea and Spurs all winning so to get 3 points over the gunners would be massive. on current form does anyone think Walcott will be a threat to us?[/quote']

This weekend we have Oldham dont we?

He played left wing for Espanyol most of the time. Really quality player when he wants to be.
proves my memory aint all that everytime

remains to be seen if coutinho would cut it in the prem but id certainly like us to sign 1 or 2 more players this window.

rodgers has been bemoaning the lack of depth wanting to add 3/4 players and we've only brought in sturridge while getting rid of sahin and cole so far.

i think butland is a no brainer for 3.5m asking price, maybe ince for 6m (4m), diame 3.5m and 1 other would be a pretty decent window.

What's the point, we're just going to lose them all out to SOUTHAMPTON

there's some guy on twitter who I didn't even know I added to my feed (I think maybe I recall someone retweeting him tipping our bid for someone (yesil? assaidi?) before he was on most radars) saying the following:

coutinho in for 8m

diame in for 3.5m

decision made on whether we will bid on wilfried bony soon

guillermo ochoa scouted as a possible reyna replacement

no point in talking about a grain of salt since there's no reason to believe him, but it does seem to match other current rumors.

Can't think Ive seen anything linking us with Diame or Bony other than wishful fans. Really hope we get Coutinho now

Would not be following anyone who thinks Claudio Reyna plays for Liverpool

my mistake, not his. just finished writing an article about the coaching situation at new york red bulls, where reyna turned down an assistant job.

Club going to desperate measures to prove Suarez isn't a ractist!

ochoa has been mooted for awhile now in certain circles, not heard the bony one and yeah, diame links are probably going back to when kenny wanted him on a free b4 he got sacked but still could be on our scouting list.

Rodgers on Reina: "He won't be available for the weekend. He'll just miss out and I'd assume that after the weekend he'll be fine."

Let's not.... he has looked nothing short of dreadful every time I have seen him play. :D

I've never seen him have a bad game for us. Apparently things didn't go too well when he was at Hull, but still, give him a go. We know what Jones can do.

good chance to give some players some game time this weekend. borini, suso, coates (if he's not gone out on loan by then), shelvey, robinson, allen. give some more minutes to lucas and sturridge too as they still need it. should be more than enough quality to win. would like to see yesil come on aswell.

2 huge games inside a week coming up after oldham, so would be silly to risk injury to suarez. agger etc.

The boys over at RAWK started a rumour that tottenham were in for coutinho, it made several websites and twitter went into meltdown :D

Well played boys. :D

BR: "We hope to do some business between now and the end of the month. The owners have been brilliant and supporting."

BR: "We know we still need one or two additions more. The club is doing everything it possible can to assist me in that."

BR: "I don't expect people [to go]. One or two, maybe, to come in."

Squad getting a bit bloated if this happens unless its a defender/goalkeeper.

Left back maybe? I can't see anything else happening.

nice, but given he said a week or two back he wasn't expecting anyone else in, can't be overly trusted. would be nice to get Coutinho and a LB in.

Squad getting a bit bloated? Really?

Reina, Jones

Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Carragher, Kelly, Coates, Wisdom

Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Shelvey, Suso

Suarez, Sturridge, Downing, Sterling, Assaidi, Borini

Thats only 22 players and 3 or 4 of them are kids.

Unless he means younger players, doubt it though.

Probably a LB for cover/competition for Enrique.

if bloating does indeed happen im sure that will get addressed in the summer transfer window to help with funds

erm, didnt we have one of the thinnest squads at the start of the season? weve lost 2 and bought 1 and all of a sudden we're bloated?

i dont get it!!

coutinho looking less likely by the hour tbh and im assuming ince is the other player rodgers is on about, hardly fills me with confidence.

Sorry but no way. Our squad is extremely thin with a lot of kids playing that usually wouldn't have got near the first team for a while. BR has been forced to play them because of a disastrous pre-season in the transfer market.

We need at least one more experienced player.

Anybody know whats going on with Assaidi?

See Morocco drew both games so far, they clearly need a certain Nabil El Zhar back in the squad :D

Well say it was a CM, for 3 positions we'd had Lucas, Allen, Shelvey, Gerrard, Henderson and the new CM and say it was a forward he'd be competing with Sterling, Suarez, Assaidi, Sturridge, Borini, Suso and Downing for one of the 3 spots. It's not like I said we have too many players to handle.

Having 4 goalkeepers wouldn't be bloated?

Doni is basically not our keeper and Gulasci probably isn't good enough, would mean Reina/Jones/new GK.

Its all well and good to say basically not and not good enough but they are still on the wage bill.

3 (arguably 4) of those guys have either done nothing for this club yet, are kids reaching overplaying levels, or aren't proven at this level. and one of the others is downing. maybe you see depth but I see a lot of warm bodies

Butland at £3.5m does seem very good value, if we could come to a pay now get him in the summer agreement and then loan him out for a season or two, could be very good business.

its dragging on too long for me. its obvious we're not gonna match inters asking price at this point and we'll probably end up shooting ourselves in the foot over 2m again by the looks of it, unless inter really are desperate and cave.

we made £2.5m on Carson's transfer, if other clubs are picking up Butland's wages while he's on loan to them, I'd be surprised if he doesn't turn into a keeper that holds at least a £3.5m price tag

I don't get the whole Jack Butland lovefest - he has a lot to prove before any top club should go anywhere near him.

I say snatch him up now while his stock is cheap. he has to fight for the number 1 spot. Would suck to wait and see his stock climb to 15+ mil

Totally agree, we as a club have been down this road many times with young British keepers. If Reina is to go i'd prefer us to look for someone far more experienced. Age doesn't really come into play with keepers, the older they get the better they become imo.
