Well I've decided not to rant till at least the window closes (at which point they'll obviously spin the "It's ok the emergency loan window opens soon!" line)
I guess if come next week we've signed Waghorn and Ayala(sp) on loan and bought that guy from Kilmarnock then it won't have been a terrible window. One out four in...
Somehow I doubt it'll be that good!
See another constant link, Charlie Austin's signed for Burnley. I'm beginning to see what our transfer approach is; make intimations and insinuations about players, wait until someone else signs them and then bemoan how unlucky we were to be pipped to the punch.
Besides Commons we've also let three of the youngsters go, including Mitch Hanson who can't have been that far off the squad at this point. Disappointing.
Ayala and Waghorn would be decent loan signings, but even if we did get them, which is by no means certain, then we're still replacing the influential players that we've lost with loanees. We're back to square one in the summer when the loanees go back. No doubt then we'l get more Glick-n-spiel in order to flog more season tickets.
It seems Chelsea may have made a BIG bid for Torres who has told Liverpool he would like to talk with Chelsea according to The Mirror. Sell him Liverpool you could use money to rebuild squad not too mention I would cash in on Reina and Glen Johnson too + sell of some of the fringe players...
Liverpool could rebuild a good squad over the next 6 months if they are smart.
Definitely get rid of Johnson, and some of the other peripheral players, but I'd keep hold of Torres. The problem with Liverpool is that they only really have Reina, Gerrard and Torres who'd describe as AAA players. I'd let any of the others go and then build the team around those three. Suarez is a fantastic signing if it goes through, you can see a Torres/Suarez partnership getting a hell of a lot of goals. You just wonder though whether they're bringing Suarez in because they can then flog Torres to Chelsea.
