    Ron..absolutely mate have to agree entirely with u on the real value of Louis Suarez to us or anyone else.Yes Real have a big reputation as cheapskates though Michael Owen and his agent did collude in running his contract down to give him maximum options for pushing his salary negotiations with Madrid so...
    I think we need new people in top admin positions at club someone who knows how to buy and sell players for their true worth otherwise we are going to become(if we havent already) a laughing stock how can we possibly consider letting Suarez go for 34 mill ffs we paid more for Andy C. Yeah I did see that Charlton kop for a six figure pay off slice off the transfer of Jon Jo...I think currently everybody takes us for mugs which u cant blame them for cos thats what we look like ! I do happen to think Louis will stay at least another season with us and try and raise his stock for a transfer this time next yr; I mean he cant possibly whinge about the British Press and then go to Chelski or Arsenal and what are we doing even thinking of letting him go to serious top 4 rivals !!!??? Italy Spain or France yes but top 4 rivals ...NO ABSOLUTELY NOT !

    ron ..again on the theme of selling too cheap seems all the paper talk this morning of it being a done deal Suarez to Chelski ...for the grand sum total of ...34 mill ??? Have they got those two digits wrong way round I thought it was a minimum release clause of 40 mill? Now if he was anyone elses registered player with thre yrs left on his contract itd be at least 50 mill he went for but being as its us spose we are obliged to get turned over yet aga

    PERSONALLY i would have prefered to hang on to Jon Jo and offer Swansea Allen back for half price ..bet they wouldnt have taken us up on the offer.

    Hobs ..we paid an extortionate 16 mill squid for Allen cos Swansea were nobodys mugs and realized to what extent BR valued the player having previously managed him and they knew as such nobody else would come in with a bid anywhere nr .So... they played hardball with us and BR and...won. End of. Just hope we dont end up this transfer window getting turned over by them again for some horrendously high fee for Williams.

    Ron AGREE 100% with u ! We are as u say getting screwed when we buy and turned over when we sell??? As u say 16 ,mill for Jo Allen ???? The one common denominator in both transfers Brendan Rogers ???

    paddy dave ron..seems Charlton are due a 6 figure pay out from us on Jon Jo's transfer..we seem clueless where biz isconcerned ..wouldnt be surprised to see Brenda shell out some highly exhorbitant fee for Ashley Williams to Swansea now.

    Ron..would have been prepared to hang on at least another season to Jon Jo obviously Laudrup can see something in Jon Jo that Brenda CANT...5 MILL seems cheap to me.

    Just watched Brazil v Spain and suddenly got the feeling that we may get a swap offer from Barca for PEPE ...David Villa now they have Neymar he could be surplus to their requirements ?

    Read that Shelvey may be on his way to Swansea for 5 mill. Better biz for Swansea than for us... the two dead legs we got from them at grossly inflated prices though to be fair one we didnt actually get from them we got from Roma and took a right mugging at 10 and half mill squid too.

    Ron cant see that 11 mill on MIGNOLET is money well spent if Reina staying but I think Reina leaving and we already know it.We must prioritize for buying in an old fashioned centre half a beast at the heart of the defense someone like Rowdy Yeats eh ? Plus think we need someone tricky fast and able to contribute a few goals from wide left .

    Loki dont really understand u post..WHU played some good football v us at Anfield thislast season most everybody admits that ..they arent a reincarnation of the old Wimbledon who beat us against all odds in FA CUP back in the day. As for Lancashire Life being 'harder' than that in N. iRELAND NOT AWARE OF WHERE i stated that I simply implied that the Lanky mentality is famed for being flexible. The Lancastrian which we Scousers are via the real County borders before Thatchers juggling of them is a good persuader he is amenable to the views of others whereas the N.Irish mentality is famed for being one of the most stubborn.BTW Im 100%Irish..but family originally from Dublin.

    Jason the teams we put the most goalsd past werewoeful when weplayed them Sunderland Norwichx2 Fulhamx2 Swansea and just who was it we actually managed to beat in the top half of the table. BR is building a team of lightweights and it will be his undoing.

    MCMXC1X.....100% AGREEMENT WITH U. Think Big SAM will get the best out of the lad hes not the stubborn personality that BR so obviously is. could be to do with the fact that Big Sam is a Lancashire Lad and BR is NOT.
