Liverpool Message Board
Whats your thoughts on this class striker?
There president said that he was surpised that liverpool didnt make a bid for him. He stated that Adriano would be back to his best at liverpool.
If i'm being honest I'd prefer Adriano. Fantastic player. Even though he has been very poor recently.
With Cisse & Bellamy hopefully leaving, id certainly welcome Adriano to our squad.
Not sure why we are still going on about strikers, maybe its because Tevez buzz is still in the air.
Right now we got Rafa's 4 main strikers - Torres, Kuyt, Crouch, and Voronin. For extra firepower, or back up you've got Lucas and Gerrard who can both push forward as attacking midfielders, or cover as strikers in a pinch. Also got Lindfield and El Zhar who might be pushing for 1st team call ups for early rounds in cup games, and might be ready if we need coverage due to injury.
I'd say we are covered up front now, and just need to provide them with service. That means wingers, top draw quality. Pennant and Kewell are fine, but we need an upgrade on both sides to push them. We need 2 quality wingers on both sides to choose from, and to cover rotation, and best man gets the job.
After that, any money left over will buy some coverage players in the back. So another 25-35 mill to spend, and we've got a side that can at least give the Manc's and Chelski a run for their money.
Adriano was amazing at Parma, playing at that level he would be a bonus to any team.
At Inter however we saw just how rubbish he can be and that is enough for me not wanting to use a lot of money on him. . . for a small amount I might take gamble.
