    Steven Gerrard says he would not be leaving Liverpool if the club had offered him a contract last summer.
    You read the rest of the article and he basically said he's leaving because he doesn't want to be a squad player. Actually good he's moving on since him staying would have only worked if he accepted he was going to have a bit part role.

    Bony's off to City, then.
    source?
    that's a real shame tbh.

    don't really know who else we could get up front now.
    we'll probably go stupid and pay 5m for origi or 25m for berahino now.

    Cech

    I reckon Begović would be available for a reasonable price, but it's whether we'd be willing to get near to the uk goalkeeping record in terms of ££... again
    Cech is definitely my first option although chelsea aren't exactly nice to us.
    begovic hasn't been amazing this season though - he hasn't been bad by any means but i question whether he'd just be similar to mignolet; going to a bigger club and bottling it.

    We getting neto, 3m. Trust. Also if we brought berahino for £20m or more, I would probably go ahead and kill myself
    have you seen much of neto?
    as long as we get a solid, consistent keeper i'm not really bothered how much we spend.

    I'm guessing those links to Ochoa died

    I seem to remember us being confirmed as to have agreed a deal

    Should have bought him in the summer.

    I'd love neto/cech, a solid CB (varane maybe doubt he would come though), and a striker such as higauin/vietto we have been linked with already. We only need those 3 positions, and we should be fine imo.

    Probably Berahino. Antonio Pulisio is quite strict with discipline, hard to see them keeping faith with him now he's been charged. May as well flog him while his stock is high as 20m is an awful lot to WBA.

    Idk why you didn't go for Bony and Vorm last summer. Maybe Brenton didn't want to be seen as raiding his old club?

    Don't think berahino is going anywhere, why would Pulis leave stoke for west brom and let their best player leave. Not going to happen IMO, I'll bet you he stays at west brom.

    We'd probably end up spending about £40m on him anyway given our track record. Let's leave him at WBA.

    Am I expecting too much to be pleasantly surprised by the club during this transfer window?

    I really don't want us splurging money on Berahino...

    true, on one hand his charge could mean WBA want rid of him, but on the other hand it could mean prospective clubs don't want him either.

    let's not be too hard on the guy - on form he can be excellent and he will surely grow.
    but we haven't seen enough of him at a consistent high standard to warrant a 20-25m buy.

    because of what SR90 said above.

    i hope he stays at WBA because i just know if we bought him we'd overspend and he'd underperform.

    He left Stoke 2 seasons ago.

    Put it this way, if Liverpool make a £20m bid WBA aren't the sort of club who could turn down a bid like that. Especially for a player with attitude problems who could easily disappear off the radar within the next 12 months. They could easily use that money to sign 3 players who would instantly improve their team.

    Would a player like Berahino fit in to Pulisball as well? He'd surely prefer Anichebe.

    This.

    Pulis would jump at the chance to stamp his authority on the squad, too.

    Milan to sign Salah on loan apparently, so we're the only team in for Shaqiri.

    We've also apparently made enquiries into Jackson Martinez. No idea how true it is though.

    Dunno if we should be glad that we didn't get Salah in the end. Although he would've been given more of a chance at Liverpool.

    Martinez is pretty old at 28 for FSG's model. I wonder if he'll end up like Cardozo where he's touted for a big money move every transfer window but then plays out his peak at Porto (cf. Benfica for Cardozo).

    Thought we should have gone for Martinez a couple of years back personally.

    This, never given an oppurtunity

    He was pretty damn good in Spain last season
