Stories saying the yanks are ready to bid 18 mill for David Silva, as Barry is too much and will not have any sell-on value after his 4 year contract, lol they must think every player they bring in will just be sold to gain a profit?

What Liverpool dont need is Rafa having beef with them again cuz you could see it did afftect players last year even though they wasnt gonna win the title or anything you could still see it.

Exactly.

Barry would be an excellent purchase Grimes, if you can't see that well...

The manager is supposed to live and die by his decisions, if we don't let him sign Barry for 18m but we sign some light weight Spaniard for 18m that Rafa doesn't even want, how can you sack him at the end of the season for not improving us if it wasn't him who made the decisions.

What stupid, ridiculous owners we have.

LMAO.

None of that is fact whatsoever. Compare the two cities and then compare that David Moores could have built the stadium using similar loans, but we'd have never entered any transfer windows since- at least the Americans have taken bigger loans and we can purchase players.

Also compare that we are now entering a credit crunch and the price of steel is going up all the time, if you don't think about these issues and only read the Daily Star, then ultimately you won't understand whats going on lol.

We bought Crouch and went for wingers, Quaresma was going to come in this summer, but he refused point blank to track back and work for the team so Rafa told him to fuck off. Or rather, the Spanish/Portugese equivalent?

Anyway, its evident we're looking to play it along the floor alot more this season, who do you really see knocking the headers in?

Its all too easy to say we need wingers, but its finding the right winger, at the right place who will fit in the system, wants to move to us and has the work ethic Benitez wants.

Depends alot on Moores/Hicks/Gillette and Parry.

Only until this last year have we been in a position where we can spend big money on a single player, plenty of other seasons were spent improving the squad on a year to year basis.

If anyone can honestly look at our squad list this season and not say that its strong, young and threatening, then I question your knowledge of football. IMO its our best squad since we were top in 2001, and probably before that.

Do you need a tall front man when you play with wingers? Man United and Arsenal (pre-Adebayor) didn't. A modern, intelligent winger will do the job. you need a Joe Cole-like player.

I was thinking of Overmars, Pires and Ljungberg when I said pre-Adebayor Arsenal.

But who are your established 'Wingers'? Rosicky? I've often seen him score goals from the middle of the park? Hleb has gone? Walcott is being played as a winger but surely will be put upfront soon?

Ronaldo is a 'Winger' but hardly ever plays as an orthodox winger and often cuts in and inter changes with the top 3. Giggs often comes inside now as his pace is lacking but his skill levels aren't. Infact United tend to play a system (depending on whos playing) Giggs, Tevez, Rooney, Ronaldo inter changing to confuse the opposition and break them down and soon Nani will be involved as he progresses.

I believe its a system we'll play similar with Keane, Gerrard, Torres and Babel and Im not ashamed to say that Rafa probably took the idea from Ferguson himself.

I'm also certain we are buying Barry to be a part of that. Shankslegend off RAWK who has contacts inside Anfield and predicted Torres, Keane and Mascherano now 2 weeks prior, reckons we're aiming for this.
----------Reina-----------------
Degen-Carragher--Agger--Dossena
-----Mascherano--Alonso------
Gerrard-----Keane-------Barry
----------Torres---------------

Which to me, looks pretty scary. With Degen and Dossena down the wings as fullbacks. Babel and Barry switchable (and Barry able to cover all sorts of positions if need be as well).

I agree in the modern game the role of the winger has changed, they tend to play inside a bit more. United do play with wingers though, just because players inter-change it does not alter the shape of the team. That liverpool lineup has everything except for pace out wide. I'd much rather have babel in that position than barry as he's going to run at & beat people. Barry is most effective at controlling the game from the centre but you have macherano to do that anyway. I'd also rather have gerrard in the centre but he is fairly effective on the right.

Someone strong, with Premiership experience, knows the deal and who will settle in immediately. No excuses for playing in a different league.

Its Benitez' 5th year, I don't want any more signings who will be good in a couple seasons, I want someone to come in and settle now.

If we're talking left sided, I want Barry. If it turns out we cannot afford him, I'd settle for Downing, but Downing doesn't have the versatility of Barry. Nor do I rate him that much.

Why is Barry good? Hes established, experienced and captain of his current (or previous club). He can deliver a good corner or a free kick (crossing wise) and allow Gerrard to be situated in the box where he should be for a corner. He's excellent at penalties and can fit in at left back, centre midfield, left wing and left forward. He also has excellent positional sense and like Keane will surely improve our level of possession this season, playing simple balls when needed. He doesn't dawdle with the ball like Alonso does and get caught out for being too slow.

This is why I rate Barry and Im certain its why Benitez does too- and I think if he signs, this'll be proved to be correct.

Blackdown
12th August '08, 10:58 PM

No one said Barry isn't good. No one will disagree with what you've said, however Gerrard can do most of those things, but someone with pace and trickery to beat a player and provide a killer pass/cross is something which I think Liverpool lack. Yeah, you've got forwards and Gerrard who can do it , but you need another midfielder who can do the same. Barry is good, but he's no Robben/Silva.

Ya read all these articles. And Im confident our team is capable of beating at least the 16 teams not involved in the 'Top Four'. Its never as straight forward as this (and bear this in mind when replying to this post), but ultimately beating the other teams is key to the title over the 6 pointers (regardless of how important they are at the business end of the season).

Chelsea - Win at Home, Lose Away
Arsenal - Draw at Home, Lose Away
Man U - Lose at Home, Lose Away

= 4 points.

Draws Home and Away against
Tottenham
Manchester City
Portsmouth
Everton

= 4 points multiplied by 2 = 8

Wins Home and Away Against
Hull City
Stoke
WBA
Wigan
Bolton
Blackburn
Aston Villa
Fulham
Middlesbrough
Newcastle
Sunderland
West Ham United

= 36 points multiplied by 2 = 72

= 84 points

Has us 3 points off United. Infact, when you put it that way, Im completely wrong, it is the 6 pointers that are absolutely crucial.

I can't wait. I'd love us to win the first 7 in a row, put some pressure on all the other teams (that would involve beating the Mancs).

Why do you buy a goalkeeper? To stop goals.
Why do you buy a defender? To stop goals.
Why do you buy a midfielder like Babel? To put a cross in.
Why do you buy a striker like Dirk Kuyt? To score.

End of story.

Standard Liege put up an amazing fight, comparable to an FA Cup tie and deserve MASSIVE credit. The fact your disappointed we didn't go out, doesn't deter the fact that Champions find a goal when they need one (when Arsenal went to the final a few years ago, Ashley Cole had to seal it with a header in the group stages).

FYI, we lost to Graz in a 3rd Qualfying Round in the Champions League and Michael Owen never played a minute, he left for 'World Class Trophies' and he won fuck all and we won a European Cup.

At the end of the day:


Fuck Standard Liege, fuck the commentators, we needed to win and we did? Lucky? Fuck off we didn't concede in 210 minutes.

European football is all about not conceding. If you keep it tight at the back you will go far. Rangers showed it last season. Arsenal two seasons previous to that.

typical lucky cuntsYou can't be consistently lucky.

Its akin to me watching Manchester United agaisnt Fulham or Blackburn or whoever last season and watch a fluke goal by Tevez/Rooney.

Thats what winners do. If Standard Liege were that good, they would have scored.

I raise my glass at the forum, down my beer and exit.

Thanks for that coz its true.

Shit performance from us admittedly, but regardless, we got the job done, and Ill look forward to the draw tomorrow. Scary, we were crap, they played out of their skin, but we're into the next round.

At the end of the day, you can play really well for the majority of a match, but if you don't score as many goals as the other team you don't deserve to win.

it must hurt liverpool fans that their manager regards the premier league as a secondary competition. I bet , given the choice, 99% of scousers would take the title over the champ league.

He regards all the competitions as top priority.

Come December/January, he will see where we are in all of them and then make one a priority over the other. If we are out of the title race in December, but still in the Champions League, I'd have no problem him making Champs League the priority.

Hardly helped last year where he had to qualify for the second round, or he would get sacked so the league took a back burner.
