    Kevin Gameiro.

    He is quite good! ;) He isnt as good as Ibra obviously, as far as I was aware we are more interested in his team mate, Menez, but I would have both!

    • striker, striker, striker, striker??????????is this record getting a little bit stuck on these boards? what about a defender or two? we are begining to look a little short on that front right now particularly central defenders who can win a ball in the air.

      • Fair point Ron. Only quoting what I saw in the media this morning. There was talk of Swansea's Williams as well. Arsenal were interested too. Not sure if we'd be favourites there but Rodgers Swansea connection cant do any harm.

      • Especially with Jamie retiring.. so yea we'll need a defender with great awareness and be able to tackle the high crosses and high balls.. A striker will be coming I guess as well we do need people in the middle too.. we'll need to have enough depth to deal with all competitions: EPL. Europa, F.A & league cup runs..

      • I do agree with you here Ron. Last summer it was stock up on midfielders, while if we're to believe the press reports this summer it will be strikers/wingers we'll be buying. Now not to say we could not improve in all parts of the squad, including up front, but the priority has to be at the back. As of late we've not had an issue scoring, and all season we've been creating, but our Achilles heel has been at the back.

        But add to that what had been our 3rd choice, and now 2nd choice CB is retiring and he needs to be replaced. Also hear rumor here and there that Skrtel might be off. For me if Skrtel does leave, we need a seasoned veteran who can walk into the starting 11, and a backup. If Skrtel does stay then maybe we can just go for a single defender.

        Another factor is how the youngsters are judged between now and next season. Many of us like the looks of Wisdom and assume he'll end up a CB. But have any of us seen him play there and is he ready to take on that role even as a backup? Coates should be ready, but is he? What about Wilson, he's out on loan in Scotland but not sure how he's doing. If any of these are ready to push into the first team (as a CB) then maybe that changes the equation. Do we go for a veteran, someone in his prime (which will cost us) or a youngster who will develop into the role?
