Its transfer season and all Liverpool FC supporters are guessing and speculating on every rumour, tweet and so called ITKs inside information that pops around the internet and papers, but right now fans are disappointed and anxious, why? Well it’s because LFC have not made a top marquee signing.

But before you start to tweet Mr Henry with your frustrations and burn your season ticket just hold on and look at what’s happening at LFC at this moment, Liverpool’s youth players are a fantastic crop of young talent, also we have a manager in Kenny Dalglish who has been there before and knows exactly what the club and fans need to progress and develop.

Yes Liverpool need to buy top quality players in key positions, not only to step into the first eleven but to make competition for places more tougher, buying players alone will not bring Liverpool the success we all crave for but a long term business plan with its focus heavily based on development of the youth and with the improvement of the current first team we will become a force that will scare the whole of Europe again.

Everyone wants Liverpool to sign the top British & European players but we all have to get a reality check and realise that we won’t attract every player just on the name Liverpool alone, and the players who are not attracted by Liverpool FC are clearly not the players we should be looking for in the first place.

FSG will invest into the team but only the right ones for the club not by a wish list produced by supporters or the media, we will all have to walk on through the rain while we rebuild but there will be a golden sky at the end.


  1. I agree. But I fear. The problem with the theory of success with youth development is the risk of losing these same players to more successful and richer clubs. Look no further than arsenal. The perfect role model. But based on their model plenty of good players but no achievement and no success. Plenty of profits, a state of the art stadium for lots of revenue. A hefty profit every year. And also lose or sell their best players for lack of success today and more money to rivals.

    All I am saying we need be competitive and win trophies by investing in the team today so that we can attract better players and also keep the youth interested in our team by showing ambition.

    1. i disagree with you on that..i think arsemal is more of buying the youth prospects and raising them. i think the youth development they are mentioning here is more similar to barcelona, where they raised their own young prospects such as kelly, robinson, etc. they would have loyalty for liverpool fc b/c they were raised here.

  2. Nice opinion piece, a little short on concrete facts but those are hard to come by now we’re back to doing things the “Liverpool way”

    p.s. – “places more tougher” – get rid of the more
    “crave for but a” – lose the but for a comma

  3. The right time, for the right piece of business.
    Well done.
    Keep calm please, Kenny knows what’s the best for the Club.

  4. True. We need a couple of marquee players like gerrard Suarez and carra along with a rich prospect list like handerson Kelly and Pacheco with some work horses like kyut Lucas etc and then a couple who can put in. Consistent performance like Johnson Adam and downing and we would be ready for the season… Wait… Isn’t that EXACTLY what fsg is doing?

  5. Hey lads!!!, Last month Liverpool’s website was hit by 4.6m fans and they viewed 102m pages, i bet at least 2m were mancs…..ha ha ha…….Seriously though it shows what a commercial tool our website really is, 4.6m in a month is awesome!!!!

  6. TELL you waht,

    1, how about liverpool just get on with it and sign better quality players?

    2, why are we leaving until yet again when pre season has started and we still yet to have even a good quality 1st choice left back?

    liverpool are so poor in the market is this yet again going to be one of those full of crap stories about how e tried to buy him and missed out on this and that!

    we see man utd get to the champions league and win the tittle and beat our record and what do we NAFF ALL !! SIT BACK AND SIGN FUCKING HENDERSON,,, ARE YOU KIDDING ME……….
