Liverpool Message Board
Well even allowing for "glass half full" that last day of transfer business was pathetic.Unless Bucky plans to play a new 4-6 formation we have the most unbalanced squad I've ever seen.
We've all seen Suerez enough to say he's not a fox in the box. A master creator but not a finisher.So we have sent our £35 million centre forward out to a team who frankly will probably outscore us,let Eccleston go (ok never done it for 1st team but least he can play up front)and have Morgan as back up (too soon)Along side Suerez we have Borini who looks like he will probably finish behind Gerrard in goalscoring.
The other thing that is puzzling,why in the current climate when strikers are rarer than likeable mancs, does Pacheco not even have a squad number?On the recent tour to the states he played left of the front three very well.
Is this another case of out with the old in with ....actually no one, we can't afford it!
We have Lucas out for at least 2 months and Joe Cole whose LFC career has had more false starts than a deaf sprinter!
What I want is someone to come out from LFC and tell us why we couldn't afford to match Spurs' 5mill plus add ons for Dempsey.
Least I know why we didnt buy Jorden Rhodes, could't afford him!
I think the answers we will get will be along the lines of "we have shown that Liverpool won't overpay for players anymore ... blah, blah, blah".
As I said in another post, the silver lining is that the likes of Yesil, Morgan & Adorjan should get plenty of game time.
4 - 6 worked for Spain!
I'll be surprised if we actually find out what actually went on. It be admitting there's a nutcase in the house. I'm surprised the press hasn't picked up on it tbh.
It's over to Rodgers and his coaches now. They've got to get more out of the squad than ever.
If I'm honest I don't know what else to say!
