Liverpool Message Board
When you say "see what I mean NOW", I'll refer you to what I posted a month back ...
"At the time BR was appointed I posted that I hoped he wasn't being brought in as a hatchet man. The more I read this window, the more I get the feeling that BR has been told to cut a budget aimed at a long period of life outside the top four with the shot at getting in from time to time."
I think the latest transfer window has proven that to be correct.
There better be, or someone better be told to hand in his parking pass on Monday!
I did not want to get rid of Carroll as others did, but can understand why the manager wanted him out, and so long as a new player who would make the squad better as a whole came in it might have made sense.
But why oh why did we let Carroll walk out the door before we knew we had someone coming in? Was it hubris on our part, or were we just out done by Spurs? 6M for Christ sake, that is what we got for Adam, and what we saved on Carroll’s wages, so we had the money. Even if he demanded a big wage, with Spearing, and Adam off the books surely we could have given him a decent pay-packet.
I don't agree with those in Sofa world, but got to say this one has me scratching my head, unless as you say there is something up the other sleeve.

I wanted Carroll out but with a suitable replacement bought before he was put out on loan.. That didn't happen.. So we're even more light upfront and our strike options are gonna be an unknown quanity.
Then it's Borini and the senior striker will be Suarez..
If Suarez gets injured where's the goals coming from?

Don't be silly Eric, who would sign a talented but injury prone striker (previously hated by most fans) on massive wages to try and recapture past glories?
Oh, wait a minute ... RVP has already signed for someone hasn't he? :-)
Seriously, most Liverpool fans would now see Owen as some sort of transfer coup! I bet BR is on the phone as we speak.
