4 players Liverpool need to sign this summer

3) Ashley Young
Every Liverpool fan knows that we need to sign a quality winger this summer who has pace. It hurts me watching Liverpool and seeing that we can not go and score a goal on the counter attack simply because we do not have the players with enough pace to launch a counter attack.

With Suarez and Carroll now our strike force, these two are going to need ammunition from the flanks so that they can score, especially Carroll. Liverpool should do all they can to secure the signing of Ashley Young from Aston Villa. It is almost certain that Young will leave troubled Villa this summer and it is a toss up whether he goes to Manchester United or Liverpool. It would be so sweet if we could snatch Young from the noses of United.

4) Charlie Adam
This is a potential signing that many Liverpool fans can not decide on. Adam has been Mr. Blackpool this season as he has literally carried the team on his own. In the first half of the season he was instrumental. He is still playing well for Blackpool today but his form has dipped a bit. Many argue whether Adam will cut it at Liverpool or would he crumble under the pressure of playing for a big team?

Adam was close to joining Liverpool in the January transfer window but Blackpool refused to sell him. With Adam we know we would be getting a box to box midfielder who will be able to create opportunities for us in attack with his intelligent play and accurate passing, not to mention his pin point accuracy from delivering set-pieces. If Liverpool do sign Adam, what then would that mean for Steven Gerrard as the two are basically similar type of players? It would be risky having both Gerrard and Adam in central midfield as neither of them are disciplined enough to play the defensive midfielder role.

Nonetheless, having a player like Adam in the squad would mean we have a quality squad with depth.

    Ashley Young and Charlie Adam would fit perfectly in Liverpool’s attack. They were two of the best players in Premier League this season.

    We need another striker desperately. I would buy someone fast and powerful like Gyan / Negredo / Santa Cruise / Benzema. If Carol is out we need someone who can play the main striker role. We need a savage animal who can finish off defenders on the counter (I’m thinking about someone similar to Babel when he finished off Arsenal with that great counter attacking run with Fabergas on his back in the Champions League Semi..lol..good times) We have guys that can score in the box in tight situations but can’t really counter.

    We also need a world class left back who will fulfil more than one role. Fabio Coentrao is my first choice and is worth every penny as he will offer us width. Enrique will be great to and Vargas will be fine but risky, just look at the last Italian lb we purchased..Dossana..if you can’t remember..I barely did.

    We also need a great strong centre back that does not take any shit. Cahill fits the bill perfectly. If not Ryan Shawcross will also be great.

    we need to find a winger that can play on both sides and who does not cut in all the time. I don’t know who but I don’t want Young. He does not really convince me that he is a world beater. We need someone down to earth that still has everything to prove. Please make suggestions.. Maybe Mata?

    As for Adam, I think he is overpriced and unnecessary. I am happy with Gerard, Lucas, Meireles, the Jay-Man (Spearing) and would bring back Aqualani. Yes I said it! He can be a better version of Modric or even the new Benny Onion. Just give him a chance, Rafa saw something and so does the whole of Italy so I think its worth the risk. We will lose to much by selling him on the cheap.

    My team..


    Johnson Cahil Agger Coentrao
    Lucas Meireles Gerard
    Kuyt Suerez

    i would prefer leighton baines to enrique.. Enrique is not quick.. baines is also a dead ball specialist

    I think all 4 you mention show a lack of ambition. Here are some of my own choices and I don’t want knock yours cos we all have our own opinions.Other than Cahill I don’t think any of those players have been outstanding in the past 4 seasons and good as he is Cahill isn’t outstanding. Enrique is good but just been very good this season. We need Leighton Baines proven class in the PL good dead ball player and also makes and scores goals in open play. Other than Baines Coentrao would be second choice. For centre back Phil Jagielka would be my number one choice and a man who could fill Carras shoes eventually. Kinda unlikely we’ll get both from Goodison but sure you gotta hope!Ashley Young is a player I really liked since his Watford days. Kenny might bring him back to his hungry best but as much as I used to like Young I think Adam Johnson is better. Not as pacey as Young but a wonderfully skilful player. I don’t think he’ll think he’ll fancy another season on City’s ever expanding and overpaid bench. He might have a hard drinking reputation but didn’t Kenny give Andy Carroll a good kick in the arse and he’d look after Johnson too. Finally some real ambition and sue if we don’t try we won’t get. Cesc Fabregas is leaving The Gunners this season but why would he leave to sit on the barca bench. We shuld get him before City can. I don’t think Adam is up to the job and he’s not as dynamic as Stevie G. If not Fabregas then Luka Modric wouldn’t be bad, a great creative midfielder. As an Irishman I have to mention an emerging Irish international. James McCarthy is definitely quality and loads of potential with an eye for goal. I reckon he’s one to watch and well worth a gamble.

    Fabregas WHO mate??1st of all if he leaves he Arsenal it wont be for another premierleague team(it’ll be for Barca).2ndly why buy him now that he’s OUT OF FORM??remember him against us??No??that’s what i mean.i agree with the Luka Modric suggestion on the other hand.if we switch to a 4-4-2 next season i hope to see this formation:
    Johnson Cahill Agger Baines
    Young Meireles Lucas Dzsudzsak
    Suarez Carroll
    i dont get it why we’re after Jose Enrique and not Leighton Baines,really.Baines is better than Enrique,has more seasons in the prem that Enrique,is a better ball crosser and player.only thing Enrique is better is pace,that’s all.i hope we sign Leighton Baines,an ex-Liverpool season ticket holder…YNWA

  6. Paul says:

    Baines? Jagielka? Fabregas?

    You lot are seriously deluded 😀

  7. tony says:

    ashely young would be massive flop 100% not aworld class player and long term solves nothing.

    Enriqie long term as well puts us in same place we are at now.

    Adams and cahill yes
    Coentrao hazard and why not dream Neymar

  8. Greennred says:

    They’re just my picks don’t expect allround agreement. I know Fabregas had a bad season mainly injury related. A full summer off will bring him back to form. Has been playing non stop since Summer 2007.Can’t see him being happy on the Barca bench. I take it we all agree that Adam Johnson would be a good buy?

  9. Lyle says:

    Pele, Puskas, Maradona,and Messi,even if they were all in their prime couldn’t help Liverpool they are a spent force.They are no longer a top four club, move on,accept it.

  10. 'pudlian says:

    Spent force? Out of your “top four” clubs, we beat Chelsea (and Bolton) home and away, tied Arsenal both ways, ended up with equal points and a better goal difference against Manchester United, returned the 3-0 favor for the other Manchester team, and are waiting to do the same to Tottenham. Although Everton got the better of us, we’re still 5 points ahead of them. Everyone else is within 12 points of relegation, hence they don’t matter. So please, stick your “spent force” somewhere else.
