    Do we need to sell Suarez if we get an offer of around 50 MIL

    At first glance, it looks ridiculous, but for me, we should not resist this offer if it comes. IMO Suarez is world class player and we have got only SG apart from him who can actually be part of any starting 11 in the world. BUT, recently I have observed that defenders can now anticipate movements of Suarez more often then not. No doubt, Suarez is at his peak and it is the right time to sell him. Also, in last couple of games, I have seen him playing very average. the reason being he is fully aware that we wil not be in Europe next season. That is a major cause of dip in his form and I think he certainly wants to leave at the end of season. SO, if he is not willing to further his stay here then there is no point to keep him. I am sure if he stays here next season, he will not replicate the form he has shown this season.

    If we can sell him for 50 MIL then we can buy at least 5 quality players with 20 MIl comes from FSG and 30 MIl from the selling of Skirtl & AC. So with this 100 MIL we can easily buy some decent players like Dede, Eriksen, Williams, Alonso and of course, TORRES.

    Let us think that with the inclusion of above players how would our team... definitely far better then now with starting 11: Reina, GJ, Agger, Williams, Enrique, Alonso, Gerrard, Eriksen, Coutinho, Downing, DS, Torres.

    • This barely deserves a response. He is incredibly predictable, you are correct. RVP hasn't scored for 19 games, United should terminate his contract too. Torres is definiately the answer, he would fire us to the title next year. Ubelievable nonsense.

    • In fact we never should've sold Torres and told him.."You're staying put, cos we're buying Suarez to be your strikepartner"

    • Yea we'd do ok for half of the season.. with that lineup.. until Torres gets injured and we're stuffed.

    • If we get an offer close to £100m then yes I'd snap their hands off.. but £50m is too cheap.. as Suarez is better than Torres and is younger.

    • Do we need to sell Suarez if we get an offer of around 50mill ? Heres a question for u...when we bought Kenny Dalglish for 440 thousand pounds to replace Kevin Keegan if we had received an offer of one million pounds for him 2 seasons later...should we have sold him ?

      • Absolutely right Colin. There is only one reason to sell Suarez, and that is if he asks to be sold, but to date while we all know he'd like CL football, all the noises coming from him and his camp is that he loves the club and the city, believes in the manager and the project underway, and therefore imo will give us at least one more season in an effort to get that CL football with Liverpool.

        Simple truth as you say, is no club sells its best players unless it has to. What we need to be trying to do is buy additional players who can complement Suarez not replace him. Yes all the cash a sale could generate would be nice, however buys like Coutinho and development of players like Sterling show you don't have to break the bank to improve the squad.

      • My point is that if Suarez stays next season and we would not buy 3-4 QUALITY PLAYERS & not headless chicken Then he will absolutely loose interest playing with high intensity. And with FSG budget of 20 MIL I am not sure we can buy quantity with quality. Also, if we can manage to get 80 MIL with selling of Surez, AC, Skirtel, Spearing then we can definitely buy 5-6 quality players and IMO 4 very good players are better than a world class player.

        You saw this against West Ham. Their tactic was to keep Suarez in control and they did resulting a draw. If we have 4-5 very good players at a time on the pitch like Tottenham then we can rely on the team and not the individuals. The reason for our inconsistency is because we rely too much on Suarez. If he has a bad day then 9 out of 10 times we can not get 3 points. Consistency comes only when we do not rely on 1 or 2 players to win us game.

        For Torres, I definitely fill that he would also love to come where he is loved the most!!! Also, he is still the best finisher IMO. He knows when to hit & when to stop. I think Suarez & DS still have to learn a lot to match his finishing skill. Because of lack of finishing skills, we are having the highest number of shots off-target in PL this seaso which was not the case when Torres was here. Also, his 18 goals this season have come when he is not the first choice later on.

    • I don't agree in selling our best players.. We should be adding to our best players not selling them.. thats why we're gonna be an average team.. we should be building a team around Suarez.. if that means bringing back Torres too then yes go for it but not \t the expense of getting Suarez. the best teams don't sell their best players.

    • Interesting, your view on buying Torres back.

      Ultimately I think you need to keep your best players. Suarez is ours and we we should try to keep him. We do not want to be a selling club. Tottenham have and are resisting any thought of selling Bale and we should do the same. We'd be the same as Arsenal if we did and that hasn't served them very well on the playing side of things.
