"Was disappointed over arsenal game. For this game against ManC, the truth is I expect a losing game. However I hope that the lads will let us keep our heads high with a good display and a determined fight to the final seconds! YNWA"

"A good squad with good depth now, although not great yet, but patience will reward. I did hope we'd sneak one more in before the end of TW, but I must be patient. Unanimous from the BBC pundits last night that LFC had the best TW in all the PL - comforting to hear. Also read about the Sterling assault charge today, clear now why his form has dipped. YNWA."

"as expected Jose Enrique in and Philippe Coutinho stiil out! hope that the brazilian will sort out any thing and be ready for the home game against West Brom! It would be a dream to debut on our own pitch maybe hitting the mark and with a bright performance!... No news on Assaidi, is he still in Africa? Bah... YNWA "

"Need to either loan Coates out for a season and then bring him back or play him on a regular bases , also we need a left back to cover for Jose or when we play him further up the pitch, so Glen can stay on the right side of the pitch would be nice to see Jose and Glen playing as wing backs in a 3-5-2 bet there be some goals then "

"Interesting to see that even youngsters can be wrritten off after a bad game. Everyone talking about options at full back, yet we have a wealth of talent in reserves.Wisdom, Flanaghan, McLaughlin and Robinson (who was possibly touted as the player with the brightest future of all the reserves). Mixing the tradional agressiveness of an English player with skill and flair."

" Now though after a bad game against Oldham he is now dismissed by many, even heard people saying he should move on after giving Suarez some stick back. We as supporters need to realise that these are kids and learning their trade. We shouldn't jump down their throats or dismiss their potential over 1 bad game. "

"Anyone hear the Doni rumours? He is rumoured to have had a cardiac arrest last June(believe in training). LFC are livid with Roma as they knew about his heart condition apparently! Sky Italia and media have confirmed the story so it does carry a lot of substance. Does explain a lot I guess"

"ChampionsOfEurope- I rate AC very highly. But he is a victim of being tagged the big target man i think? The old fashioned type of English Centre forward (not the way BR plays)Do feel that if AC had been signed for £10m we would still have him but at £35m he is too expensive to have as a stand in or another option. "
ani-road-05
1st Feb 2013 16:45
"Feel it would be for the best but I am sure he will do well in his career and better than all England forwards (maybe not Rooney) just that is style doesn't suit what BR is trying to achieve. Towards the end of last season and during the Euro's we saw a mean, lean Andy Carroll he did look the business."

"ani-road-05: Excellent assessment. That 35mill noose round his neck was not his fault, but sadly was his demise at LFC. I still think he'd be a good plan B for us, but who has a 35mill plan B warming the bench. I still think I'll miss his presence, but its probably best for all involved; just interested to know who much money will be recouped."

"Yes it is a shame that the fee ended up being AC's biggest enemy. Same problem with Downing I believe. He has been a key player lately but LFC know they will never get anywhere near the fee back so I feel that any offer of around half that in the Summer then LFC will sell before his value plummets further as he reaches his 30's."

"ani-road-05: Those comments are another reason why I'm glad the club didn't splash huge sums on players this TW. Those sums can make or break a player. However, some of the signings made by others were pretty incredible; Butland 3.5m, most of the NUFC French players, Holtby 1.5m, Graham 5m, but then Samba was a shock!"

"This was the problem with a number of signings made in recent years. The actual amount we paid for the players. Take the signings that KD (and no, I'm not starting that debate) made! Downing, Hendo and Carroll I think are all good at the respective positions at least ast the best who come from the UK. "
ani-road-05
1st Feb 2013 17:12
"It was just the amount that was spent. Hendo apart, the 2 others we could lose up to as much as £40m. The Chief Execs at LFC in recent times (Parry & Ayre) have been useless at negoiating and often dithered meaning we have lost out on good players- C. Ronaldo being one. We have either paid far too much or hesitated over fees and lost out on some diamond players. "

"ChampionsOfEurope- Butland was a steal. Also as you say NUFC French signings. We have been very astute during window but don't half envy some of the other captures made by clubs."

"Ani - you are the benchmark of the average fan-Thats not a bad thing though!Champions - A plan B is sometimes required at any cost, small margins such as a point or goal difference can mean the difference between qualifying for CL. I believe we desperately need a Plan B, whether that's big Andy or someone like Ngoo."

"If we want to beat city we will have to play our own game which is to keep the ball and eventually score. If we start defending we get too deep and its just a matter of time before we concede. If we do this we have a real chance of winning with their weak defence and absence of yaya toure."

"If what is being said about Sterling being charged with assault then I cant see him being on the bench for a while. I hope if this is true that it is not a case of young man getting too much money and it all going to his head leading to "look at me" syndrome. Hope it clears up for his sake."

"Awesome against Arsenal? Were gifted 2 goals and then spent the whole of the 2nd half with 10 man behind the ball and Suarez at left back. We defended too deep due to the return of Carragher meaning our midfield had acres of ground to cover and Sturridge was left isolated. If City get an early goal with Corporal Jones at the back we'll get murdered. "
