24 hours ago I was just coming to terms with the fact we were going to sell Torres for 50m. Andy Caroll for 35m is meant to be the sweetner? Meaning we've barely got enough change to sign Charlie fcking Adam? This is like some sort of sick joke.
Have people lost their minds? do you honestly think Andy Carroll is worth 35 m - 35 fcking million? Or to put it another way 70% of Nando?
Anelka is a direct replacement for Torres, rated at 8m - even Sturridge is a more like for like replacement rated probably around the same. We should have played hardball and demanded 45m for Torres + Anelka. Instead we've actually getting 15m for Torres plus Andy Carroll. Whatever way you want to look at it, it is absolutely atrocious business, amongst the worst I can remember in our history.
sorry to quote you, however you are a representative of the many negative posts on this.
What people are failing to realise more than anything else is that although we have paid £35m for AC FT has still not left. So we have not waisted any of FT's transfer fee. Moreover this is not the G+H reign, we do not need to sell to buy, it looks more like we buy who and what we think is necessary in order to improve and better ourselves. As KK said it is not a matter of one in one out.
Money is there regardless, does not matter if FT leaves or stays, money is available, and players are bought not as replacements, but rather as additions to what we already have. This is the most refreshing thing that has happened to our club since the 07 CL final and people are questioning how much we payed ? WTF? Are you people really Liverpool supporters coming on a LFC forum? Or are you just sad miserable gits , who need to moan about everything in your life, and share it with as many people as you can ?
The club did not have to dimes to rub together 6 months ago, now we buy are buying players, NOT AS REPLACEMENTS (FT has not gone anywhere yet) but as additions, as all great clubs do, buy to add to what they have already. How it should have been for RB, Rafa should not have had to look to sell Alonso to buy Barry, as a progressive club with option, we should have had both of them. Money should have been available to him to buy Barry, not as the expence of, but as an addition to.
The future is bright, the future is NESV
