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.
Think Im with Ron on this we need to be looking at some central defenders that can consistently win the ball in the air. We seem so horribly vulnerable from set pieces, corners particularly. Not too sure about Williams prefer a Chris Samba type.

I think we will need 2 centre backs for the reasons already discussed. I think Williams because he knows Rodgers' methods so should be able to slot in seamlessly, and he has that vocal leadership quality we need. Samba would also be good coz of his pure physicality and his aerial prowess. That's gonna cost a big chunk of our kitty, but it would be worth it. The rest is going to have to go on a striker. The thing is, it is my opinion that we need a ball-winning beast in the middle and an attacking central midfielder, maybe Coutinho could do that. If so, it will have to be another winger, but I would say that would be another 25 million at least on top of the defenders and striker. Will the owners release the dosh needed though. Next year is the most important in our recent history - we run the risk of falling behind forever if we don't make that top 4.
