Liverpool Message Board
the two guys have done everything bar buy shell suits with black curly wigs and do Harry Enfield scouse impressions in their "disguised " desire to come to LFC.
Do we want them to go to Spurs? Over two weeks ago Bucky said the next purchases would be new first teamers, and I think anyone who watched pre season know we need an extra centre half and that bit of something different further up the pitch.
Up to now the money we've spent has been generated through sales, surely there must be more?
If Downing is going (and I think £6 mill is too low) I hope Ince is the replacement, although don't be surprised if it's Scott Sinclair.
Finally , Borini, I do really really want him to succeed but again from pre season's showings I can't see it.
Best to sell him back to some Italian club and take a punt on Jordan Rhodes. He scores goals which is what we need.
I don't understand this obsession with all things foreign. Holt, La fronde, Lambert, all were said to be unsuitable for the premier and all proved themselves in lower leagues before the step up.
Yet we seem content to take a risk and a financial one at that with anyone simply because their name ends in a vowel!

have I had a "dallas moment?" did I dream sunday's result? tactically bucky is way behind kenny and steve clarke or rafa.
And one thing you never do,whether as a football manager or a boss at work is slag your workforce of publically.By all means rip 'em new ones in the privacy of your office or dressing room,but you back them.A bit of humility and acceptance of picking the wrong team or asking lightweight players to combat mature physical players would go some way to convincing me he's going to improve us.
Why will those players from Sunday run through a brick wall for bucky when they know he will blame them next time we have one of those "bad days at the office" as he called the villa game?Yes some players underperformed but he picked them, along with the formation and he could have made changes as soon as he knew it was going to pot.Sorry the jury's still out.Believe me I want to see improvement,we need to beat a top 10 side and we need consistency,the one thing we wont get with youngsters,which is why whether there is an unofficial policy or not about buying older players we need experience.I don't think it coincidence he hasn't bought anyone over 23.It's ok saying they'll bed in and be world beaters in2/3 years that won't keep our genuine worldies here much longer!

would rather finish fourth than win a trophy?well we'd save on the fuckin brasso won't we?and the footballers wives can convert their husbands trophy rooms into walkin wardrobes cos all they'll need is a little black book with "finished fourth" on each years page.
They are called HONOURS, they acknowledge you were a winner. You and your team were better, tried harder, beat all before you to WIN.
You do not go out to come second.
In 20/30 years time will you remember who came 4th?
As a kid at school remember how we could all remember previous winners of the FA cups? but we struggled on the runners up?
You remembered the WINNERS not the losers.
If you do not want to win then don't fuckin bother entering.

well when Bucky talked of" fourth" I was hoping he meant league position, but it seems he meant that will be the round in which we'll exit both domestic cups!
And as we seem to about to sign another "moneyball"player as opposed to an experienced "matchwise" one can I suggest that if bucky is so obsessed with youth why not go and manage in the nextgen?

I have always made a point of not coming on here the same day as a match,cos emotions often get the better of me,but Jesus did he draw that team out a hat?
If anyone had been to scout oldham I would have thought something on the lines of "and they have this big aggressive lump up front who looks like he should be swatting biplanes on the empire state building"
I really really want to see Coates prove himself, but he may just be a guy who is not suited to english football.
That game was perfect for Carra, physical confrontation and no real pace in the two front guys.
I always thought it was a given to play "kids" when you're doing well.Kill the game with your best 11 and bring them on when the crowd and the opposition have had enough.
Some people want to make themselves look too clever.Shanks said football is a simple game.
I appreciate we have big games coming up, but players don't feel tired when they're winning.WINNING BREEDS CONFIDENCE.Losing to a team 2 leagues lower than you does not.
I have a feeling that bucky thinks we all need educating as if we have never played pass and move before.
And finally when Borini got the ball in the face, the looks on carra's and stevie's face said it all."He's another lightweight, and another waste of money like(diouf,kewell,cisse,cherou,morientes,)insert which you feel most appropriate.

has anyone wondered why this "missing piece of the title winning side" is not being chased by everyone? If he is such a bargain why no Man Utd bid? It's not as if they are overloaded with midfield playmakers!Arsenal? Man City? any German big guns looking at him?
Spain? Italy? no takers apart from a team in Turkey and us?
You will not be buying the guy of 2-3 years ago. Just as we didn't buy the joe cole of 3 years ago.
If something sounds too good to be true it normally is too good to be true.
You cannot guarentee that he will bring the title,success etc.You can only hope.
Certain people on here, and we know who they are, who are demanding his purchase will be the first ones to moan about paying millions in wages etc for a has been!He will go from missing jigsaw piece to waste of money in a season.I'd love him to prove me wrong, but history as shown he is more likely to be another joe cole rather than a Gary Mac.
well the 2nd half of the season should be enlightening,now everyone has this new found sense of angelic fair play.
No more stoke defenders going for two falls and a submission.no more swan dives from various players ( we all have one)will the manufacturers of red and yellow cards have to lay off their workforce? We can abandon goal line technology 'cos obviously goalies like Roy Carroll and Bogdan will point out when the ball is over their line.In fact will we need match officials? surely you expect your star forward to admit he's offside.How long before Ferdinand tweets that the ref got it wrong and should have booked him?
And who knew so many people had alliegence to Ghana?they must have replaced England as everyones favorite international team!( you thought they'd have been hounding the dick who missed the penalty)
Ridiculous,yes, but no more than the lorryloads of shit dumped on Suarez these last two days. Grow up for fucks sake.What are you told the first time you turn out in a game? play to the whistle.
And finally, will someone please explain to the empty headed lfc hating fuckwit that is john "oh sir alex take me up the arse "champion the difference between a commentator and an opinionator
