    Good business all with a small overall net spending when you consider what wages and contracts are and will be coming off the books as well.




    Good point on the overall spending and wages. Its becoming clearer the direction BR wants the team to gonext year... and hopefully the addition of mkhitaryian, ericksen and a cb... but the summer comes and goes with suarez

    Aye, it's true. Any scenario that sees Suarez leave is bad for the club overall. Still, some good signings being made, shrewd pickups, if you ask me.

  • So peaches and Si, where do we think Joe Allen fits into the squad going forward? Assuming we will announce Aspas and Alberto both sometime soon.

    He was probably our best player for about the first month of the season and then looked like he wore a lead kit the rest of the way when he was playing. Im sure his true form is probably somewhere in the middle of the two.

    What say you?

    I think he gets another season to prove that he was hampered by injuries last year. The thing is, I think Coutinho's passing AND attacking ability make Joe Allen obsolete. He can pass it about, but doesn't have that decisive, defense-splitting pass that Coutinho seems to have. We'll see.

  • This isn't so much transfer related, but Arsenal have announced that Peter Hill-Wood has stepped down from his position as Arsenal chairman due to health reasons and will be replaced by Sir Chips Keswick.

    Reina definitely more consistent, but his errors last year were unforgivable in a lot of cases. Mignolet will do, especially if we can get 12-14 mil for Reina. Look at the total saves for Mignolet, more than double what Reina had to deal with. An improved defense at Liverpool should see Mignolet's goals conceded come down and clean sheets go up.

    I'm excited to see if we can nab both Llori and Papadopoulos, as well as Mkhitaryan or whatever is name is.

    Looks like this is happening. Is it possible that Suarez is just trying to force Henry into buying some top-shelf talent to build around him so that he'll stay?

    *I* think it's a case of we know we can always sell Suarez if we have/want to, and Mkhitaryan is just adding talent around Suarez to make Merseyside more attractive. A lot of midfield options if we are lucky enough to get him. Exciting times.

  • So, at this point I'm thinking sell Reina, get Mignolet, Sell or loan out Shelvey, sell Downing, sell Skrtel and bring in Llori and Papadopolopodopolopodous, and try to do whatever it takes to keep Suarez. You figure if we stay with the 4-3-3, you put Suarez at the very top, with Sturridge and probably Mkhitaryan on either side playing high up, then Aspas, Coutinho and probably Gerard in the middle, *maybe* pulling in Lucas when needed in place of Gerard. Back 4 would ideally be Kelly at RB (he's better than Johnson when healthy), Agger, Papadopolopodopolopodopolopodous, and either Enrique or someone new. Oh, and the Carrol deal to be done in there also. THAT would represent an amazing summer window and a very good chance at a return to the champion's league. I expect United to fall away drastically under Moyes. He's too conservative for the top 4. Chelsea to win it all, City second, United, Liverpool and Arsenal to battle it our for 3rd and 4th, Spurs the unlucky outsiders after Bale almost certainly leaves. If Suarez leaves, I'll wait to see who Liverpool bring in to try to replace his goals before predicting the season.

  • One thing I worry about is with all these new and hopefully improved parts is that we will have time to learn how to play together as a team. I know great players don't need long, but it still concerns me.

  • Not sure what to make of this but Jozy Altidore has been linked with a move to the EPL. Kinda hope this happens, he deserves to get more exposure, espescially with how he's played lately, and playing for AZ in the Eredevisie isn't really gonna help him with that.

  • I just hope he goes to a club that plays him. Its more important to be on the pitch frequently than it is to be in a better league. He's going to need to be sharp for the world cup.

  • Liverpool have already been quite busy with some tidy deals. Aspas and Alberto both signed, and both VERY highly rated coming out of Spain, with Mignolet seemingly on the way for 11 mil. Seems a bit steep, and the reports are that Reina plans to stay. Not sure what to make of all that.

    Mhkitaryan deal is being delayed because of third-party ownership of the player, and the talk of Papadopolopodopolopodous and Llori seems to have died down for now. We REALLY need help at the back. Hopefully once the Mhkitaryan deal is tied up, they focus on that back 4. Have to say though, loving the business done so far.

    Definately a change in policy since last summer. I'm pleased with the additions and like the thought of Aspas replacing Assaidi, alberto replacing Shelvey and potentially Hk replacing the massive gap at CAM on this team. We need a proper CB in, I like Llori. I'm also fine selling Reina with Mignolet in.

    Still, the biggest question is Suarez..... and if he goes who replaces him? Khiguian, jovetic?) Our summer is really wrapped around that bit of business

    Jozys ready for the PL. He fits the mold of a Benteke or Michu type signing, played up top on a mid table team that's willing to play the game despite a lack of results. For me he could go to villa and replace Benteke (if he goes), join Fulham who desperately need a striker or even settle in at Southampton. All would be good fits.
    I will say that the dutch league is/was perfect for him. Those teams all train in the same attacking model as the dutch national team with a focus and purpose on free flowing, attacking, creative football. Its the same model Reyna and the USMNT have adopted for our system throughout. For Jozy the results are quite evident. He's deserved a move up, but that is a credit to the Dutch league

  • Sky Sports has picked up on the Higuain to Arsenal rumors by claiming that representatives for the Gunners have traveled to Madrid to complete the deal. Liverpool also have officially confirmed their signing of Iago Aspas. And Arouna Kone has apparently expressed his desire to leave Wigan and join a new EPL club.

    He's too good for Southampton, as much as people get starstruck about the EPL, who would want to play in a relegation dogfight and Championship next year. Cardiff are having difficulty signing players for the same reason. I'm thinking Arsenal or Liverpool. The guy has frightening potential.

  • Higuian to Arsenal makes some sense I just don't see it until RM haved moved on Bale/Suarez or other. Its not like they need to sell to buy. So right now just paper talk and connecting dots. I think its safe to say Higuian leaves and Arsenal make sense. United will too if Rooney goes As would Liverpool if Suarez leaves, although I don't think he would prefer that move

    Waynama is leaving Celtic, which is a great step for him and as Glascow said a very promising talent. I read Liverpool have interest and could see a transfer plus sending a starlet from the academy back to celtic on loan (say shelvey, suso or even Ibe). The two clubs have a long standing relationship so who knows. Would love him

    The thing with Higuain is, that there are so many rumors right now about him, that something is gonna become confirmed at some point within the next few days, if not then it will happen within a week of the transfer window officially opening. I think the one thing that is actually delaying anything is the fact that Madrid is still looking for a manager. Higuain isn't a solidified starter at Madrid and I really doubt him leaving would be a death blow to Real, they're still gonna go after Bale or Suarez regardless.

  • Gate, have to understand the transfer rumours. Most (up to 90%) are rubbish stories made up by journalists to bring traffic to their twitter or site or paper. Sure, there is some thought put forth (well RM wants a new striker and Higuian was behind Benzema so surely he's off.. which PL team needs an attacker?) But none of these people are truly in the circle that makes the request

    Again, Higuian to Arsenal makes sense, (as it does for him to go to Dortmund Juve or even City/Chelsea) but RM isn't pushing him out the door without his replacement already in. Liverpool and Spurs are in position to sell (both Bale and Suarez are on long term contracts) so it would be madness to drop a top striker with the assumption one or both of those two are on their way. The rest is pure speculation and I warn you not to get your hopes up. The deal may indeed come off, but id be shocked if its before mid-late July. Remember both Bale and Suarez were all the rage two weeks ago but their speculation stopped driving traffic, so now we are onto Higuian, Cavani, etal

    Thus is summer

    All this midfield and attacking talent is sure nice, but what defenders are we looking at? Anything besides Ilori, Papa, and Auderweild?

    Do we need to look at others? I'm sure they have more on the radar, but don't forget we've a good crop of young lads coming up, with Jack robinson, Andre Wisdom and Flanno coming up, as well as the return of Martin Kelly. We have Agger and for the time being Skrtel. Coates is probably out, but if we got Llori and papa, I'd be chuffed.

    Couple things here.. first Wanyama would add agreat deal of depth and grit to our central midfield defending he would also give us a chance to shift into a 4231 with a lead late on, keeping either Lucas or Hendo in reserve

    The second is that BRs a pupil of the Cruyff 433. This has to be understood. To see his plan he (as Barca still do) is to use possession of the ball as a means of defending. The more we have the ball the less opportunities the other team will have its why Johnson and Enrique are still on the team, and why Llori and Anderweld make more sense as CBs than Pap

    Tevez for 12 million is good business... and I don't think that it hinders a team from going for Higuian or Jovetic

    Never said it would, but they might make other positions a higher priority now while keeping an eye on those two.

  • No Gate, you said "probably" but Tevez isn't the answer to any question for a top CL competitive team any longer. Great squad player and depth off the bench. At 12 million a team like Juve can still afford to grab the top drawer sriker they surely need.

    I like Juventus set up (in the 352). Tevez will give them some scoring punch but they really need a top talent up top more than anywhere else I like Jovetic going their, if Cavani goes somewhere else. I think Cavani is the striker all are waiting to seal off first. Once he's done the others will follow

    Lots of teams to be in the mix for these strikers once the roll starts. Bidding wars to ensue.

    Yes they can go for more strikers. Problem is, after adding Tevez, they now have 6 Forwards, add to that the 5 forwards they have out on loan, you gotta think someone's being sold/sent out on loan if they want go for another one. Do you ever think about that stuff when you try to claim that I'm wrong?

    Why even waste the energy to type this? Better yet who is the mental midget who conjured up this verbal diarrhea?

    Gate, of the 11 strikers they have, how many are world class? Liverpool has 15 midfielders and yet have added two and are bidding on three others

    Do you think about these things before you start whimpering?

    Also, the window is open, and I am, well, available

    Let the bidding war begin[color=#BF0000][/color]
