This WAS a transfer thread....

Recommended Posts

We need more players, we hung about waiting for this fella who now suddenly is dead weird til the window fell off and smashed everywhere.

 

31 days we had to sign players. Not hard to see why people are annoyed with the club. Not like its the first time this has happened either.

 

In fact we could have started working on players before the window even opened, so more than 31 days. Go right down to the last minute and then sign no one.

Seems very simple, the yanks aren't willing to spend.

 

2 years 4 windows net spend 60m - 15m a window.

 

Hey but we got dunkin donuts sorted, and vauxhall, and some airline sponsoring the under 10s footy kit, top of the commercial league, wooo, stick that trophy in the cabinet.

Up near the top of the commercial league was it Ayre said? Do we get a trophy for that? Are we aiming for top 4?

Need a proper CEO here pronto, one with football experience and previous success.

 

Fully agree. Ayres Seems to be doing a decent job on the commercial side, where his background is. But 5 quite public failures in 2 windows shows his inability to get jobs closed as a CEO. He should step aside & go back to commercial director& let a proper football director come in. What's david dean doing these days?

f***ing s**** all round...

 

If FSG refused to stump up them shame on them.

 

If Ayre tried to face an oligarch down over a coupla mill the he is a fool. Or similar...

 

If neither of these are true then the scouting team should be fired.

 

Seems very simple, the yanks aren't willing to spend.

 

You're both idiots.

 

I don't know why we're being so keen to run our own club down, if it was a case of some Russian Oligarch showing the world what a big man he considers himself to be, then simply everybody's a loser here.

 

Exactly.

Also the worrying thing for me is both the players we've missed out on,we really don't need! Who targeted them? Committee?,Rodgers on his own?? We all can see a DM is key and full backs, did we really need more wingers?

Lets be honest we are all guessing including the jurnos as to why it collapsed. They fact we didnt act earlier on in this window in a clear and decisive manner is hard to take. Our best change for years of finishing top 4 injuries to key players and not strengthening is worrying. FSG I think have missed out big time in this window.we will have Suarez contract extension was our best business letter to us soon, but they've put all their eggs in one basket by doing so

 

Before people jump on this, it's simply a thought, a supposition.

 

Has Ayre traveled to the Ukraine thinking that he needs to sign one of our targets this January after the Salah fiasco ? We hear the player might be interested so he flies out there in hope, rather than in expectation.

 

Or has the player originally agreed a move but then spoken with the owner and then decided to stay but we have no further contact with the player and Kolomoyskyi doesn't sanction the deal - we're led to believe it is purely down to the owner.

 

 

Not good enough anyway you look at it because we needed players to come in and all we've done is loaned more out.

how many people had either heard of or actively wanted either of these guys before the window?

 

Yeah we're s**** in the market but who wants efficient?

 

We have sod all options from the bench. We needed players in.

A worrying pattern isn't there? And has been for a while.

if I wanted salah and was aware of him then I'm sure loads of others who watch football 24/7 seemingly would.

 

I don't put myself in that bracket of football hipster.

The point is the manager identified them... It's not our job to identify what the club requires in order to make top 4...

Brendan wanted them... He sees them as vital to getting the club where he wants it to be.... Then passes responsibility to the owners and Ayre to sort it out.

 

It just looks like there is no serious backing of the manager here by the owners or the actual negotiations by us are amateurish at best... Or a mixture of both...

 

We need depth in the squad. Yeah a winger isn't priority I'm sure but we need quality in the side and options and if we get top 4 we need a lot more depth

So on this one the owner wouldn't sign the paperwork and on the previous one the player simply didn't want to sign for Liverpool....... We're just so unlucky aren't we?

It's not our job to scout the players ffs. All this 'how many wanted him' blarney isn't any use. Have you got to have a dossier on anyone you expect us to sign?

It's the fact once more we've failed to improve our squad. We're one of five prem teams not to have brought anyone and we've one of the smallest squads.

Pathetic
