Why sell this Liverpool star when others should be sold first?

With the recent acquisition of Jordan Henderson some are asking, where would Meireles play? Firstly, by no means is Henderson a better player than Meireles. Henderson is good, but is still young and I do believe that he is a brilliant investment. I do not expect that he will always be in the starting 11 next season though. Secondly, there has been a lot of talk about Liverpool playing with a 5-man midfield next season, in which I do think we will be able to accommodate Meireles. And third, even if Meireles didn’t start next season I think he would be an amazing impact player (super sub, some would say) and wouldn’t be unhappy about spending a little more time on the bench.

I think it is quite unfair on the player, not to mention unbeneficial for us, to let Meireles go after one very decent first season at Anfield. Please, at least get rid of Poulsen, Aquilani, Cole and Jovanovic first before even discussing the transfer of one of our better midfielders. There has been some discussion surrounding Aquilani but almost nothing about the others, who definitely won’t be needed next season.

I recently wrote an article on Charlie Adam and came to the conclusion that, yes, he would be a good signing. I am sticking by that but will not be happy if Adam’s arrival involves the departure of Meireles. I really hope that we do get to see the Raul at Anfield for at least another season. Amidst all this, I am certain that Kenny has a plan which will not disappoint us. In him we trust. Your comments and opinions will be greatly appreciated.

    Rumours… do you really know exactly what is going on at our club or are you just reacting to the media noise? Are you a newbie or something, this is always the way it is at this time of the year! CHILL OUT DUDES!

    He’s not British! That’s his only crime. We don’t want this shallow mentality at Liverpool FC.

    Why do people insist on writting about things that they know nothing about. It’s all paper speculation but if as suggested the problem surrounds an increase in wages how can anyone comment without knowing ALL of the facts.

    KK knows what he’s doing and as the saying goes “Those that can, do. Those that can’t, write about it.”

    can’t wait for next week, most players back for
    pre-season, hopefully alot of these bolgger reports will disappear under the wieght of real reports.

    Read what RedNProud posted. Read it twice. Most sensible posting I’ve seen in a long time.

    Beca use no one wants to buy them? Meireles played well for a couple of months. However he’s 28yo, occupies Stevie G’s spot, wants a pay hike, shirks tackles and we can’t sell Aquilani. At the end of the day we can’t justify spending 65k a week on a squad player with no sell on value. It’s unfortunate but them’s the rules. Younger talent, smaller contracts.

    The manager must work within the constraints of the owner’s dictate. Those constraints clearly intend a lessening of the wage bill.Any incomer must therefore be acutely ware that careful scrutiny is the order of the day. Like the instance of Marveaux it is foreseeable that a number of targets will decide that their future lies elsewhere. After all they are there for the money they can collect in so few years that remain them and who can lay blame if they consider both their welfare and that of their families.

    Kenny,comolli are all crazy.comolli hasnt made any success with any club.I wonder why he is at LFC.He’s bringing crazy principles.At this point of time,we were supposed to be looking for talented and experienced players.What will wayne bridge,james milner contribute to our team.They are all useless players.If you want to sell meireles,you should sell the likes of j.cole,poulsen,ngog,jova first.After all meireles is only looking for around 65k.

  12. DaveWestAus again says:

    SIMPLE ANSWER: they cannot sell the players they don’t want because nobody else wants them either,(not good enough),and so they have to sell a ‘reasonable’ player to be able to help finance signing a ‘top’player!

  13. DaveWestAus again says:

    To add to my previous blog !!! The big problem is that the top players only want to go to clubs that are playing European championship football!

  14. LW says:

    He took a paycut to come here, and was promised that he would get an improved contract if he were to do well, KK and DC don’t think he is good enough so they are selling him.

    We dont have to sell to buy… we have the funds available… we just dont want an enormous wage bill.

  15. anna says:

  16. Holy man says:

    Ya no buyers for all those flops created by former management team! Moreover their wages are dam high!!! EspeciAlly Cole, ngoh,etc… They are there to collect wages without contributing in the field-that end up with merles Become the culprit and demand a raise in wages at this wrong moment!!! Some of the flop even don’t leave the club with a potential suitor-reason to take a pay cut than more first team opportunity!!! Really unprofessionalism.
