    Re: Official Liverpool Thread
    The end of another season and I just want to lay down some of my ideas, hopes and aspirations for our beloved LFC. It was a disappointing season, finishing 6th due to a terrible start. But there is light at the end of this long tunnel now. Hicks and Gillette have crawled back under their rock and the king has ascended back to the throne.
    I have to say I have complete faith in our new owners. They're not over promising like the previous clowns but going about their business quietly in the background.
    Reasons LFC fans can feel positivity with these new owners:
    - Most obviously since their takeover they've removed the crippling debt which was hanging around our necks like a 100 ton anchor. Admittedly, whilst they did get us on the cheap, there can be no doubt they are Liverpool's saviours. We were going under, - RBS were going to make an example of Liverpool Football Club and they wanted their dollar!
    - They removed Hodgson, but did it quick and decisively. (Think about how West Ham went about trying to appoint O'Neill behind Avram's back. None of those shannanigans here!) Furthermore they listened to the fans and appointed the King, at first on a 6 month contract. Which I think was the correct decision.
    - Torres had a hissy fit and thought he was too fantastic to not be involved in European football. The owners acted to extract the maximum amount from Chelsea and then make that money immediately available for reinvestment to Comolli. This shows 2 things:
    1. They understand the Liverpool mantra: no player is bigger than the club.
    2. They aren't trying to make a quick buck by selling off stars and not reinvesting the cash.
    - The appointment of Comolli... Director of Football position is not always a particularly popular role in English football. But to me the appointment of Comolli tells me the club has a strategy moving forward. And that is crucial. Comolli also has a decent enough record of unearthing gems. The strategy certainly appears to be investing in youthful players.
    - They are taking their time to decide the correct way forward with regards to development of a Stanley Park stadium or redevelopment of Anfield. They have said that if Anfield is redeveloped they will not sell the naming rights. Look at the cowboy Mike Ashley at Newcastle. He hasn't shown same respect to the Newcastle fans with St James Park.
    - The fans have felt alienated from the club over the past few years with the cowboys we had running the place. How do the new owners rectify this? Create the Liverpool Football Club Supporters Committee. In my opinion this is a fantastic development! Ok, it is only early stages with the Committee only being agreed in the last week or so. But this shows that they want to get the fans back involved in the club and this committee will be a strong voice for all LFC fans. The committee is made up of fans, each of whom represent a particular group of fans: Fans from local area, fans who live away from Liverpool, fans from abroad, ethnic minority group fans, LGBT fans, fans suffering with disabilities and so on. This committee will meet and discuss issues pertaining to fans and the club will act on any issues arising if it sees fit. Fantastic.
    - The owners are some of the top spenders in MLB. Never scared of reaching into their wallets.
    - Back in January the owners said that the main spend on transfers would be in summer transfer window but that there would be incomings in January. Now, we were bidding for Suarez before Torres had his sulk. And Kenny has said the owners were disappointed we didn't get more faces into the club in January. Now lets remember this: The owners said most transfer activity will obviously be in the summer yet with our bids in January it looked as though we could have had a net spend of anything from £30 Million +. (Suarez, and bids for Adam and possibly A. Young if you believe reports).
    Now our net spend was probably somewhere between £1 Million to £5 Million).
    My point? I honestly think their is oodles of money available for transfers this summer, but the money will be spent wisely.
    If you're still with me after my ramblings I'd like to have a look at the squad and discuss my opinions on what is required and transfer rumours.
    Goalkeepers:
    Reina
    Jones
    Gulacsi
    Note: It looks like Reina is staying now. Earlier on in the season I wasn't so sure. Apparently he has had a reassuring chat with Damien Comolli.... I imagine Comolli has reassured him big cash will be spent in the summer.
    Defence:
    Agger - keep
    Kyrgiakos - Squad player or sell
    Wilson - Give a few more games, play in cups
    Carragher - keep (obviously)
    Skrtel - keep
    Ayala - loan out for 6 months then reassess
    Robinson - Loan out for 6 months or give run out in cups
    Flanagan - Loan out for 6 months or give run out in cups
    Johnson - keep
    Kelly - keep
    Konchesky Sell
    Midfield:
    Meireles - keep
    Gerrard - keep
    Maxi - squad player or sell
    J. Cole - sell
    Lucas - keep
    Aquilani - sell? If he wants out. Kenny is playing his cards for the right price in my humble opinion
    Spearing - keep / squad player
    Poulsen - sell
    Shelvey - keep / squad player
    Forward:
    Jovanovic - Sell
    N'gog - Sell
    Kuyt
    Pacheco - loan out again - Norwich would probably be a welcoming home.
    Carroll
    Suarez
    Who to bring in & what are the rumours
    Before I start let me say that it is important to consider what system/formation Dalglish (and Clarke) will be looking to play. I have a feeling we may play a 4-3-3. That's just my opinion, but I obviously even if you recruited with a 4-3-3 in mind you need to able to field a team for other formations eg. 4-4-2.
    Lets remember Hodgson brought in some dross (with exception of Meireles). Kenny has said quite categorically that he will only bring in players of the highest calibre. Hopefully that means that we wont be bringing in 5-10 medicore players but rather 3 or 4 top class players.
    Defence:
    Left back
    Obviously we need a Lb. Rumours I am aware of are: Leighton Baines (unlikely) and Fabio Coentrao (again unlikely). Coentrao has been reported saying he will only leave Benfica for Real Madrid. I wanted Taye Taiwo but he has since moved to Milan. I wouldn't mind Leighton Baines either but can't see him crossing Merseyside. The final rumour I'm aware of is Jose Enrique at Newcastle. This the one looking most likely at the moment. Opinions on Enrique?
    If we played a 4-3-3 someone like Coentrao would be formidable - 2 attacking full backs.
    Centre Backs
    I think CB position is fairly strong. We've been linked with Carr from Birmingham. He has been solid but if we do get a CB I would be in favour of signing Samba from Blackburn. Big, strong and proven premier league experience. Furthermore a decent asset for both offensive and defensive set pieces.
    I'd be in favour of getting Danny Wilson games at CB to see what he's made of, and I'd also welcome Martin Kelly being given a run in that position.
    Right Back
    Fine in my opinion. Good cover from Kelly, Flanagan, Robinson and even Carragher.
    Midfield:
    Centre Midfield
    One way or another we need a bit more creativity, however I think CM is fine and there is good cover. If we do let Aquilani go then I'd be in favour of recruiting a midfield terrier/ball winner. Someone to replace Mascherano. Lass Diarra anyone?
    Spearing has mature lot this season, and I think Shelvey is going to come good too given time. He'll provide incisive passing in my opinion.
    I would not support over recruitment into this position in this window because we need to give our youth a chance to develop.
    Creative/Wide Midfield and Forwards:
    I've lumped these together because I think in a 4-3-3 the wide players can be considered forwards or creative/attacking midfielders.
    Gossip/Rumours that come to mind: Marveaux, Hazard, A Young, Downing, and Sergio Aguero.
    In my mind this is the position that needs strengthening. If we play a 4-3-3 a player like Aguero would be fantastic. Imagine Suarez-Carroll-Aguero. Boy would that be an explosive frontline! Kuyt would also operate on a rotation basis and Maxi could provide decent enough cover.
    Non Liverpool fans say: "Why would Aguero go to Liverpool? No European football and it's a club in decline". My response is this: Could the same not have been said of Suarez? Did David Silva, Toure, Tevez, Balotelli, etc go to Man City in the Champions League? NO. They were sold by the ambition and perhaps cash played a part.
    Liverpool is going to re-emerge this season and if Comolli can persuade players of our intentions I don't doubt we could attract these players. With all of our focus on the league I honestly think we have a fantastic shot at top 4, if not better. Lets remember: Tottenham have to contend with the fixture hell, which is the Europa League. Man City will have eyes on Europe. Arsenal are inconsistent. Chelsea are in management disarray and United's team is in a period of change - introducing youngsters to replace Giggs, Scholes, Neville, Van der sarr, etc.
    This years EPL was won with far fewer points than in most recent years. That tells me that the top teams have dropped off the pace a little this year. I think (as an LFC fan) it is our time to pounce.

    - They are taking their time to decide the correct way forward with regards to development of a Stanley Park stadium or redevelopment of Anfield. They have said that if Anfield is redeveloped they will not sell the naming rights. Look at the cowboy Mike Ashley at Newcastle. He hasn't shown same respect to the Newcastle fans with St James Park.
    - The fans have felt alienated from the club over the past few years with the cowboys we had running the place. How do the new owners rectify this? Create the Liverpool Football Club Supporters Committee. In my opinion this is a fantastic development! Ok, it is only early stages with the Committee only being agreed in the last week or so. But this shows that they want to get the fans back involved in the club and this committee will be a strong voice for all LFC fans. The committee is made up of fans, each of whom represent a particular group of fans: Fans from local area, fans who live away from Liverpool, fans from abroad, ethnic minority group fans, LGBT fans, fans suffering with disabilities and so on. This committee will meet and discuss issues pertaining to fans and the club will act on any issues arising if it sees fit. Fantastic.
    - The owners are some of the top spenders in MLB. Never scared of reaching into their wallets.
    - Back in January the owners said that the main spend on transfers would be in summer transfer window but that there would be incomings in January. Now, we were bidding for Suarez before Torres had his sulk. And Kenny has said the owners were disappointed we didn't get more faces into the club in January. Now lets remember this: The owners said most transfer activity will obviously be in the summer yet with our bids in January it looked as though we could have had a net spend of anything from £30 Million +. (Suarez, and bids for Adam and possibly A. Young if you believe reports).
    Now our net spend was probably somewhere between £1 Million to £5 Million).
    My point? I honestly think their is oodles of money available for transfers this summer, but the money will be spent wisely.
    If you're still with me after my ramblings I'd like to have a look at the squad and discuss my opinions on what is required and transfer rumours.
    Goalkeepers:
    Reina
    Jones
    Gulacsi
    Note: It looks like Reina is staying now. Earlier on in the season I wasn't so sure. Apparently he has had a reassuring chat with Damien Comolli.... I imagine Comolli has reassured him big cash will be spent in the summer.
    Defence:
    Agger - keep
    Kyrgiakos - Squad player or sell
    Wilson - Give a few more games, play in cups
    Carragher - keep (obviously)
    Skrtel - keep
    Ayala - loan out for 6 months then reassess
    Robinson - Loan out for 6 months or give run out in cups
    Flanagan - Loan out for 6 months or give run out in cups
    Johnson - keep
    Kelly - keep
    Konchesky Sell
    Midfield:
    Meireles - keep
    Gerrard - keep
    Maxi - squad player or sell
    J. Cole - sell
    Lucas - keep
    Aquilani - sell? If he wants out. Kenny is playing his cards for the right price in my humble opinion
    Spearing - keep / squad player
    Poulsen - sell
    Shelvey - keep / squad player
    Forward:
    Jovanovic - Sell
    N'gog - Sell
    Kuyt
    Pacheco - loan out again - Norwich would probably be a welcoming home.
    Carroll
    Suarez
    Who to bring in & what are the rumours
    Before I start let me say that it is important to consider what system/formation Dalglish (and Clarke) will be looking to play. I have a feeling we may play a 4-3-3. That's just my opinion, but I obviously even if you recruited with a 4-3-3 in mind you need to able to field a team for other formations eg. 4-4-2.
    Lets remember Hodgson brought in some dross (with exception of Meireles). Kenny has said quite categorically that he will only bring in players of the highest calibre. Hopefully that means that we wont be bringing in 5-10 medicore players but rather 3 or 4 top class players.
    Defence:
    Left back
    Obviously we need a Lb. Rumours I am aware of are: Leighton Baines (unlikely) and Fabio Coentrao (again unlikely). Coentrao has been reported saying he will only leave Benfica for Real Madrid. I wanted Taye Taiwo but he has since moved to Milan. I wouldn't mind Leighton Baines either but can't see him crossing Merseyside. The final rumour I'm aware of is Jose Enrique at Newcastle. This the one looking most likely at the moment. Opinions on Enrique?
    If we played a 4-3-3 someone like Coentrao would be formidable - 2 attacking full backs.
    Centre Backs
    I think CB position is fairly strong. We've been linked with Carr from Birmingham. He has been solid but if we do get a CB I would be in favour of signing Samba from Blackburn. Big, strong and proven premier league experience. Furthermore a decent asset for both offensive and defensive set pieces.
    I'd be in favour of getting Danny Wilson games at CB to see what he's made of, and I'd also welcome Martin Kelly being given a run in that position.
    Right Back
    Fine in my opinion. Good cover from Kelly, Flanagan, Robinson and even Carragher.
    Midfield:
    Centre Midfield
    One way or another we need a bit more creativity, however I think CM is fine and there is good cover. If we do let Aquilani go then I'd be in favour of recruiting a midfield terrier/ball winner. Someone to replace Mascherano. Lass Diarra anyone?
    Spearing has mature lot this season, and I think Shelvey is going to come good too given time. He'll provide incisive passing in my opinion.
    I would not support over recruitment into this position in this window because we need to give our youth a chance to develop.
    Creative/Wide Midfield and Forwards:
    I've lumped these together because I think in a 4-3-3 the wide players can be considered forwards or creative/attacking midfielders.
    Gossip/Rumours that come to mind: Marveaux, Hazard, A Young, Downing, and Sergio Aguero.
    In my mind this is the position that needs strengthening. If we play a 4-3-3 a player like Aguero would be fantastic. Imagine Suarez-Carroll-Aguero. Boy would that be an explosive frontline! Kuyt would also operate on a rotation basis and Maxi could provide decent enough cover.
    Non Liverpool fans say: "Why would Aguero go to Liverpool? No European football and it's a club in decline". My response is this: Could the same not have been said of Suarez? Did David Silva, Toure, Tevez, Balotelli, etc go to Man City in the Champions League? NO. They were sold by the ambition and perhaps cash played a part.
    Liverpool is going to re-emerge this season and if Comolli can persuade players of our intentions I don't doubt we could attract these players. With all of our focus on the league I honestly think we have a fantastic shot at top 4, if not better. Lets remember: Tottenham have to contend with the fixture hell, which is the Europa League. Man City will have eyes on Europe. Arsenal are inconsistent. Chelsea are in management disarray and United's team is in a period of change - introducing youngsters to replace Giggs, Scholes, Neville, Van der sarr, etc.
    This years EPL was won with far fewer points than in most recent years. That tells me that the top teams have dropped off the pace a little this year. I think (as an LFC fan) it is our time to pounce.

    Re: Official Liverpool Thread
    The end of another season and I just want to lay down some of my ideas, hopes and aspirations for our beloved LFC. It was a disappointing season, finishing 6th due to a terrible start. But there is light at the end of this long tunnel now. Hicks and Gillette have crawled back under their rock and the king has ascended back to the throne.
    I have to say I have complete faith in our new owners. They're not over promising like the previous clowns but going about their business quietly in the background.
    Reasons LFC fans can feel positivity with these new owners:
    - Most obviously since their takeover they've removed the crippling debt which was hanging around our necks like a 100 ton anchor. Admittedly, whilst they did get us on the cheap, there can be no doubt they are Liverpool's saviours. We were going under, - RBS were going to make an example of Liverpool Football Club and they wanted their dollar!
    - They removed Hodgson, but did it quick and decisively. (Think about how West Ham went about trying to appoint O'Neill behind Avram's back. None of those shannanigans here!) Furthermore they listened to the fans and appointed the King, at first on a 6 month contract. Which I think was the correct decision.
    - Torres had a hissy fit and thought he was too fantastic to not be involved in European football. The owners acted to extract the maximum amount from Chelsea and then make that money immediately available for reinvestment to Comolli. This shows 2 things:
    1. They understand the Liverpool mantra: no player is bigger than the club.
    2. They aren't trying to make a quick buck by selling off stars and not reinvesting the cash.
    - The appointment of Comolli... Director of Football position is not always a particularly popular role in English football. But to me the appointment of Comolli tells me the club has a strategy moving forward. And that is crucial. Comolli also has a decent enough record of unearthing gems.

    If anyone thinks 'minor' swearword that is picked up by a camera after a couple of huge incidents in a big game warrants the same punishment as intentionally swearing down a camera in front of millions of people telling them all to 'f' off after scoring a goal, then they are seriously deluded. Typical Man Utd fans thinking everyone is against them all the time. It's not even worth debating with some of these people.
    Anyway delighted with the performance put in by all of the lads. They put everything they had into the game and defended so well as a unit. I've been watching Flanno and Robbo regularly for the reserves earlier this season and it's great to see these lads come in and perform so well at the highest level. They're not ready to be playing week in week out yet (hopefully we won't make he same mistake made with Insua and give them too many games too early), but the experience they've both gained will be so valuable to their development.
    I hope Carragher's alight after what looked a nasty blow and wish him a speedy recovery. I also hope Aurelio and Carroll are okay and not going to be out too long.
