I hope you guys pick up Clint Dempsey. I realize he is not a technical whiz but he has a great knack for scoring goals out of the midfield. Also it
looks like maybe Newcastle is going to get Andy Caroll back for quite the reduction in price...
Actually he wouldn't be a bad signing... if he can replicate his form of last couple of seasons and hit the ground running, for £5m-6m he would be
a good signing, short term but that isn't a bad thing.
And to be honest, we just need to get rid of Andy Carroll ASAP..... the guy is one of the worst players I've seen in a Liverpool shirt and I was
totally against signing him in the first place.
£35m??? We could have bought any striker in the world for that (Messi, Ronaldo and a few others aside) and proven goalscorers too.
We are the laughing stock of the league in terms of transfers and have been for 2 seasons now.
That seems to be changing under Rodgers and I hope it continues.
He cannot be blamed for wanting to sell Carroll or whatever loss we take on Carroll.
We were never going to make a profit for the kind of money we paid for him and if the manager doesn't think he can play in his system (which requires
skill, movement, pace and fluid passing, and Carroll clearly lacks in all those areas) then he MUST sell him and use the money to buy players he sees
playing in his system.
I think Kenny and Damien both had to go after we wasted so much money on mediocre players during their short time in charge of transfers.
If Rodgers had that kind of money now... we would be laughing.
Onwards and upwards.
