"We should get him. You lot can doubt him for his age, but I admire his talents, get him for 8-12 million."

"Come on LFC, u have 12m to splash on a bench warmer (Sturridge) but can't afford Villa who is a proven goal-scorer?! If you want to keep Suarez you better bring in players of his caliber!!! YNWA"

"they want £16 million. when was the last time he scored?. he might have been a good player but too big a risk now. YNWA"

"Sturridge and Villa would be 2 very nice additions, but I reckon Villa will go to Chelski."

1st Jan 2013 14:41
"Stop being so focused on the age. Look at RvP, he´s 29. Ibrahimovich, he´s 31. Both top scoorer. David Villa is a really good player and he know´s exactly what BR is doing here!"
Luis7Sturridge15
1st Jan 2013 14:59
"Too many clowns on this site. Villa has no PL experience and can only offer a few years service. He is not worth even 10M in my books! Sturridge and Ince would do nicely and hopefully wrapped up before our FA Cup clash with Mansfield. "
DaRevolution
1st Jan 2013 14:59
"I agree if we are to bid permanently 10M would be my limit for a 31yr old of David Villa's talent we should get possibly another 3 good yrs from him"

1st Jan 2013 15:02
"David Villa would be a very good buy even at 31 years old. The amount of experience he has can be beneficial for or younger strikers. He can still pla at least another 4-5 years! Look at Giggs and Scholes (sorry for the reference but that is the truth!) YNWA!"
Luis7Sturridge15
1st Jan 2013 15:13
"gemboy - Giggs and Scholes are not injury prone and also have over a decade of PL experience. Your reference is poor. "

"plyNo1red - spot on. A very expensive short-term fix. Obviously a proven goalscorer in the past, but that's why Barca don't play him,its all in the past."

"Suares, Villa and Sturidge is tremendous. Together they can take us to the top four, BR just do it and our team will have a great attacking line..."

"Barca wants a permanent deal - they they should sign contract extension of 10 yrs. Is it worth buying some one's scrap for 15 mn pound?"

"MIGHT SOUND STUPID BUT (sorry 4got caps lock) we should try for mertens,hooper and llorente think hooper can be good player for us"
adie65
1st Jan 2013 16:14
"Barca should know we dont do regular transfer deals,, look we buy stirridge of Chelsea for 15mill, Chelsea buy Ba for 10mill = chelsea get a far better player than we do and they save 5 mill at the same time,, we should buy the Newcastle scouts during the transfer window "

"No Pancho or whoever Villa.He is been worst last two years.Buy Leandro Damiao.He is a man with every move he improve in field.Stop even talk with Barcas poor-Villa anymore.Stink is less i can say for him."

"get him !! dont need smart man to think that his fantastic finisher and would give us 3 good years (which wat we need at the moment coz we cant get Falco or Cavani for over 30m) this guy as good but older but SOOO WAT"

"it's a make it or break it! Either we get him on loan or we let him overthere! £16m is not a fair price!"

"Villa us a world class player, proven scorer at intl level, and sturridge is a bit player at chelsea, never scored more than 10 goals a season, ok he is younger than Villa, but we cant afford to build a team for the future whilst risking becoming a midde table team in the present! We need a quality striker now"
liver_red66
1st Jan 2013 18:17
"7.5 million for Demba Ba, its not rocket science... "
JAGOM
1st Jan 2013 18:18
"Plus i can see Villa selling much more shirts and merchandise than sturridge, so would be a good merchandise deal, and would show liverpool can still attract worldclass players, still has 2 or 3 yrs in him, if he scores 50 goals in the next 3 seasons he would be worth it"

"Villa will add 10+ goals for the rest of the season he's worth it. MAKE THIS HAPPEN FSG!!"
Kingnav
1st Jan 2013 20:25
"Let's be honest Villa would be a good addition, but at the age of 31 and recent injuries 8 million is all we should offer, nice to have him but spend wisely on no PL experience yet a very good Spanish forward."

"In our situation we have to expect to pay more. when we get back into Europe we shall have better bargaining power. Not many are rushing to join us in our current position! SPEND! in the long run FSG gets their money back and more!"
DaRevolution
1st Jan 2013 20:38
"Villa's best position is down the middle he has been unhappy at Barca before he got injured because they play him down the left because Messi plays through the middle. He has come back from injury this season but hasn't got much minutes because other players have done so well this season people saying he isn't quality anymore because he isnt playing are shortsighted what about Tello, Sanchez "

Red2theBone
1st Jan 2013 22:50
"anything more than 10m for him is too risky, in fact I feel giving 10m to barca for a 31 year old out of form striker is too much, how can they even begin to think we would pay such amounts for him, I really we dont go for him"
filizant
1st Jan 2013 23:35
"No! No! No! No! No! Injury prone and past his prime. "

1st Jan 2013 23:46
"I'm not usually one to use Youtube vids when it comes to players but: .youtube.com/watch?v=JgEOZ-UkeB4. It's a fair compilation of Villa since he came back from injury. Even if he's 31, look at his touch, movement and finishing. It's still quality! Still a top player who I would happily pay 16m for it meant the difference between 7th and (hopefully) 4th! "

"WITH ALL THE MONEY WE WASTE ON JUNK FROM THE CHAMPIONSHIP $16 MIL FOR A SPAIN INTERNATION PROVEN GOAL SCORER.. THANK THE LORD ITS ONLY 16 ..FOR 5 MIL LESS WE GOT BORINI WHO IS YOUNG AND GOT INJURED WITHIN 6 GAMES.. CANT LET THIS ONE GO"

"Rule out anyone over 28 yo. The players need some years to form bond and teanwork. 31 year old guy will be too slow to strike by then."
RealLonewar
2nd Jan 2013 7:16
"Borini is going to be a top striker, so people stop your childish rants at him, he is a young talented lad who was a snip a £10 mil, he will triple his value in the next 4 years, great business by BR!"

"At 31 defo not worth signing on a permenant deal as he has nver played in the PL and at his age he would expect time and space on the ball, could be a major flop, loan only in my eyes, stick to your guns."
FOREVER RED
2nd Jan 2013 10:24
"My heart says yes but my head says no. He just come back from a very serious injury. He has been out for a long time. We have no idea how well he has recovered. Sometimes these medicals don't work. I will only consider taking him on loan but wont buy.Having said that - what a player to add to our ranks, can win games single handedly...our striking options sorted for a couple of years . "

TedLFC
2nd Jan 2013 11:33
"more than worth it for 10-12mill. Even if he is in his 30s its more worth it than Borini for 12mill, atleast we will get some goals!"

"Sign him he could be the one to give the club and the fans a real boost and put us back in the CL, the project is a long term goal we need to stay in touch with the Mancs and others. "
Luis7Sturridge15

"Big Eyes ex R.S.A - Time you got a reality check. Liverpool are not even close to the Mancs let alone Chelsea. Spurs and Arsenal are also looking better than us and dare I say it Everton. "

JubesYNWA
2nd Jan 2013 23:13
"we need to get lucas back to his best and match sharpe like he was before, then gerrard can resume his normal role of playing where he wants, that free's up suarez to coast about where he needs to and feed off the 2 wingers, villa would be an amazing signing but he plays best as a central striker and he won't get too play that role with us. "
JubesYNWA
2nd Jan 2013 23:15
"if we paid 10 mil for him we'd make 20 back in shirt sales and he's a good role model to have around for the kids which is what we are very very abundant in if you think about it. he wouldn't be able to play every game but that would also take some pressure off of luis but does suarez thrive on pressure"
JubesYNWA
2nd Jan 2013 23:19
"if we can ghet him on a loan to buy deal then it's a no brainer. he's a fantastic player and he still has what it take. if we have to pay i'd say hit them with a 10 mil offer plus 50g's an appearance fee"
Mabsy
3rd Jan 2013 15:54
"nashty, he is world class and better than carroll who we paid 35 million for! if we gonna waste silly money on average players, i wouldnt put 10 mill maximum mark on him. id say lets sign him at any cost! with him and suarez, we'd be a force to reckon with again [guaranted goals each game]"
