"Would be amazing, imagine if Joe Allen and Jonjo could spend a few years playing with and learning from the best passer of a ball in the world? Surely this would be worth changing the transfer policy for (i.e only youngsters). Please Brendan and get well soon."

"class player still could do a fab job depsite his age he was never had serious pace so what u never had u wont loose, Aldridge made a good point on sky in that we need to go for Walcott and Baa for 20m and maybe alonso on loan"
5STARKOP
31st Dec 2012 12:35
"why do we seem to be going for the wrong player Baa is a steal at 7.5m and walcott too can u imagine a front three of surez baa and walcott "
5STARKOP
31st Dec 2012 12:39
"seriosuly if we got any hopes of keeping surez then we need to be buying quality now not benchwarmers from other teams - mr rodgers plz go for walcott and baa or surez may leave "

"it probabply wont happen as in recent times our managers have preferrede to spend big money on uk based players due to the lack of knowledge of the european market, and the idea that Uk born players blend in quicker has been shown to be a flawd idea as carall n co have proved whilst at the same time mata n co have excelled"

"I think I would be the only Liverpool fan that would not want this deal to happen. No doubt he is a quality player but statistics do not lie. Even Charlie Adam had a better record than him and he cost less. Fans tend to get carried away these days because of the name of the national team he represents. "

"Our kids at LFC are our future. Alsonso coming back may just set us back in midfield so i would say no. We have Lucas, Allen, Stevie, Hendo, Shelvey which should do the trick. Hendo and Shelvey have come on leaps and bounds in last six months..lets not destroy this progress"

"Wouldn't surprise me if he follows Rafa to Chelsea..... He has unfinished business at Anfield so lets hope he chooses the right option. Just the type of player we need to be serious of mounting a credible top 4 challenge next season."
Kopmaestro
31st Dec 2012 18:04
" the telepathy between Steve g and xabi would be amazing to see again 60yd passes splitting defences for Luis to score a hatful of goals is just what we need for the next few seasons until the kids mature enough in the first team.2seasons would push on great."
OldVic

"The selling of Alonso was the beginning of a long period of bad buying/selling decisions and it looks like it is going to continue. We could have had Cash & Sturridge for Torres and could have saved the wasted £35m on Carol. "
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 18:09
"Now we are prepared to pay £12m for Sturridge when Chelsea are so anxious to get rid they are paying him £1.5m to go, and are looking to replace him with Ba a much better player for £7.5m. Why are LFC always on the wrong end of these deals."
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 18:19
"My faith in BR's choices are not helped by the fact that he was chasing Sigurdsson and Dempsey, neither of which can now get a regular start at Spurs. Why didn't we go for Berbatov or better still Defoe when they were available?"
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 18:23
"OldVic - Don't think negative. What makes you think Ba will be better than Sturridge? They bought Torres of us for 50M and he has pretty much been a flop. "
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 18:34
"OldVic - Chelsea have not even signed Ba yet so your comments are pretty much useless right now. Sturridge is a Liverpool player. I suggest you support the lad rather than slating him before he has even kicked a ball for us!"
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 18:35
"Luis7?9 I base my arguement on facts. The Premiership have a table of players rankings according to their performance. For strikers that is for goals/assists etc. Ba is ranked 2nd only to VSP (Suarez is 3rd), Sturridge is 63rd. This is in some degree because of his lack of games, which tells it's own story."

"what a great player, need him back. if were going 2 challenge for top 4 spot"
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 18:40
"To get your own comparison go the front page of this site, go to Match+, and click on Player Comparison. Then compare Ba to Sturridge. Even allowing for the fact Ba has played 3x as many games as Sturridge, the comparison is quite stark."
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 18:42
"OldVic - Again you need to realise the club they are currently playing for. Carroll was great for Newcastle but a flop for us. Torres was great for us but a flop at Chelsea, get the drift mate? "

"israr1234 - With or without Alonso, Liverpool will not get top 4. I can explain this to you but I don't have the time to. You can save this comment and post it to me in May if I am wrong. "
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 18:44
"As far as I know Sturridge has not signed for Liverpool yet, he can't until January. So he is NOT a Liverpool player any more than Ba is a Chelsea player yet."
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 18:48
"OldVic - Okay let me rephrase it then. Sturridge will become a Liverpool player this week. Do you have any proof that Ba will become a Chelsea player this week? As far as I know, Sturridge has not featured for Chelsea in their last few games whereas Ba has played for Newcastle. "
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 18:56
"OldVic - You cannot really compare Ba and Sturridge seeing as they play in different positions which is why I have not wasted my time in comparing them. I wonder how many goals Ba would score if he played as a RW? "
Luis7Sturridge15
31st Dec 2012 19:01
"Just to add to my comment. Sturridge scored 8 league goals for Bolton in 12 league games. Personally I find him a much better option than Ba. "
OldVic
31st Dec 2012 19:10
"O.K., lets have Sturridge AND Ba and take some of the strtain off Suarez. And while we are about it let Johnson move forward to midfield as that is obviously where he wants to be and sign Richards from Man City, for my money a very under rated defender by his club and country."

Incidentally, 'Aqualani' does not seem to be doing all that badly at the minute, would you not say? Certainly not as badly as Adam, Allen or Henderson, say."
