    I saw someone suggesting selling Lucas. This would also be madness, especially with Gerrard leaving. He's our best DM, end of story. Yea we could do with another one (unless Can can prove himself in that position), but even then I wouldn't get rid of Lucas.
    Wasn't suggesting selling him at all. Read my post.

    I was saying that he's more likely than most to leave. Been linked with a move away for two years now, sporadic first-team appearances, hasn't had a run of games, injury-plagued, etc.

    I love him and rate him. I wasn't advocating his sale - just saying it's a possibility.

    Was saying this today.

    We need consistent 7/10s, rather than 8/10 one match and 5/10 the next.
    unfortunately too many of our players are like that
    coutinho is probably the biggest example - he'll absolutely destroy a team one day, then the week after he'll be bullied and rendered near-useless.

    consistent players like milner might not be unpredictable, but you know they'll put in a shift and you can rely on them.

    Although I agree with your points about Milner, Coutinho and most of the squad, I've got to say recently Coutinho's been a lot more consistent.

    the question is whether that is form or not.
    coutinho's biggest 2 problems since he joined liverpool have been scoring goals and providing consistency.
    he has cetainly improved his shooting which is excellent.
    however even during the FA cup game - he was outstanding in the second half when the opponents got tired and slow, but pretty damn terrible in the first half against a league 2 side that were bullying him physically.

    If Rodgers does not get a GK and ST this transfer he should go.

    We need to get rid of Johnson now to avoid him leaving for free. No idea who'd pay anything for him, though.

    Skrtel, Lucas, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Borini will all leave in the summer and fetch an OK accumulated sum.

    Kolo Toure will probably go on a free - same with Gerrard, obviously.

    Wouldn't be against us looking to offload Allen, Lovren, Mingolet and Balotelli, either, but something tells me we'll be lumbered with them for the forseeable.
    Not worth selling Johnson now for a nominal fee and being a RB short for the rest of the season. Flanagan hasn't recovered yet, Enrique is crap and Manquillo isn't ready to play week in and out.

    Borini might leave this January.
    Aspas has hardly played for Seville so might be hard to sell. Alberto we may retain for the future. I think he's doing okay at Malaga?
    Yea Toure will just retire or leave on a free.

    Why would we sell Skrtel and Lucas? Two of our better performers this season.

    No more players getting zaffed then http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport...ompany-8407848
    Wonder why he's leaving now. Either the club have fired or he's left for personal reasons?

    Suso was a Dalglish signing.

    Think the only Rafa signings we have left are Lucas, Skrtel and Johnson.

    Sterling was signed by Rafa

    It's been 4.5 years since Rafa left and we've had 3 other managers in that time. You have to say it's impressive how long a lot of his signings stuck around for.

    the simple answer to that is because he knew who to buy but he also knew how to use them.
    sadly rodgers too often lets us down in both of these areas.

    Rafa did well in the market for me. Very few players that he made a loss on. Increased the value of most players or got some use out of them before moving on and upgrading.

    I stand corrected.

    The way I look at it is this - Rafa signed Luis Garcia, Rodgers signed Joe Allen.

    I don't think so, there's not many quality players we can buy/who will come mid-season. If we can't find a good GK/ST this window there's no point overpaying for mediocre ones just for the sake of it. I'm sure BR knows a GK and ST are priority signings, hopefully we can bring in at least one good GK/ST this window.

    i would be content this window if we only managed to get one of a striker OR a keeper, but only provided they were high quality.
    i understand players may not be as readily available, but that is the penalty you have if you need to improve your team mid-season.
    we will need to pay extra in january as a direct result of spending badly in the summer.

    not showing strong attempts to sign a GK and a ST would be proof that the owners are writing off this season.
    at least if we strengthen in those positions we know the club haven't given up, so we wont either.
