What is intreaging and also very satisfying for me as a LFC supporter is we seem to have a plan for our first, second and third choice buys for each position and Kenny Dalglish and Comolli seem to have done their homework.
Last year with Woy,(I know timing was not on his side or his ability to see a Liverpool signing) but it was shocking and stunk about panic buying, thank god he guessed the Mereiles deal correctly even though he didn’t know how to use him!!!!
We may need to pay a few extra pounds for a British player but at least that will take away the “homesick get out of jail card” some of the foreign players use to engineer a move.
The backing he is getting is second to none and there have been no quotes about having to sell before we buy even though it would be even better if we could lose the reported £1million-a-week we are paying out in “deadwood” wages that we need to lose in order to free further monies and move the payers on.
Keeping his cards close to his chest also means that the players that really want to play for us will make decisions in our favour.
I know its only paper talk but Wickham and Clichy are supposed to have turned down bigger and better offers as they would prefer an Anfield move, lets hope these rumours are true.
What are your thoughts?
