A lot of the talk today has been about our loss last night to Blackburn and how long Hodgson is going to remain in his job. We had hoped to hear that Hodgson has been sacked this morning but no luck with that news yet. Maybe we have to wait for the Americans to wake up and then we may hear something.
But for now the transfer speculation continues and we have been strongly linked with Stoke’s Robert Huth and Aston Villa’s Stephen Ireland. Now they are not two of the worst players in the game but they are not that great either. They are average Premier League players and having Huth as our center back and Ireland in our midfield would not amazingly changes our current team. What is the difference between having Huth and Skrtel? Likewise Ireland and Joe Cole?
What Liverpool needs right now are players who would walk into the starting eleven and make an instant impact. For many years now we have had to rely on buying average squad players and look at where that has gotten us. We need to change our approach at Liverpool and that means not settling to buy these mediocre players.
