"If we are going to sign only one more player then i hope its not a young player with potential, we need a player who would straightaway go into our first team. Would love to see a top class attacking player signed but i doubt it. Ince looks likely to be the next signing, don't think he's ready to play week in week out and deliver performances."

"How can no one see the real truth now about FSG? If Sturridge is the only signing this is a joke. Thats just sorting out the problem we caused in the summer by letting Carroll go without a replacement. We needed at least 2 top quality players to challenge for top 4 before other teams added to their squad and we got one and it looks like thats the lot. "

"I'd say it's either Ince, or a loan deal. We got Joe's wages off of us, but no further investment until summer. I'm still quietly optimistic that we'll see another acquisition before February"

"BR you are a honest guy-thiis is what we as LFC must appreciate. Traditional Jan is a top up month. The real business is done in the summer. We can do with another striker. Give us an option to change formation, format, style when we need to. Top teams should have at least 4 strikers all fighting for a spot. Hopefully we will acxheive this with the rest of the team over the next 12 months"

"Is 12 million really all this club has to spend from the summer given that we didnt buy anyone of note then either? Is this the real level of investment FSG are putting into the club? Unless we find another Torres to sell then we wont really have any money. And even if we sell players to buy players it isnt investment. Its just trading."

Cole has left plus the fact we were already short of players after the departures in the summer you would have thought at least 3 signings. Sturridge is a great signing but we need at least 2 more top quality consistent performers for our attack Damiao and M.Suarez pls"

Just to clarify to those that don't have a clue, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez, Gerrard, Assaidi and Suso are the attacking minded players and also the ones that make a difference. We can no longer rely on just 1 or 2 players that we have been doing for so long. "

"plyNo1red, Ince never wanted to leave but was surplus to requirements under KK. I genuinely believe he will offer more than Downing but I am quite happy to let Stewart have the rest of the season to excel. We will have to wait and see"

"Can't blame FSG for being cautious after KK signings! Allen £15m Borini £11.5m and now Sturridge £12m me thinks this is too much money for these three players !! just my opinion!"

"OK then, I can understand: most of the cash gone on Sturridge (we really needed a striker) and we already have a huge wage bill. But there must be some promises for the summer transfer window? Brendan, speak up, tell us what they tell you about the next year budget. "

"How are we going to compete for fourth place without having at least another top striker and an attacking midfielder. We let some many players go in the summer and haven't really replaced them. BR has short term memory given that he said the squad is too thin so by just buying Sturridge makes us a much better team then?? May be he is right after all he is the manager!!!"

"We all love kk but he set us back a season or two with blowing a huge budget on 2nd rate players and therefore it's no wonder FSG are shy of blowing big money again they deserve credit for bailing us out at the 11th hour but loyalty to kk cost us last year and a lot of fans dared not criticise his buys simply cause he was kk we forgot that the best interests of lfc come b4 anyone individual "

"I am sick n tired of everyone getting on the backs of FSG! So for all u DUMB so called supporters... 1) Bought out Gillette and Hicks 2) Cleared our 275 MILLION DEBT so the club has NO DEBTS!! 3) Have provided 150 MILLION for players so lets look where the real problems lie"
SidKav
5th Jan 2013 1:16
"Poor players have been bought for huge amounts of money. Any club spending 150 million should be able to compete for the top four without any problems so the problems are not FSG the problem is the poor players bought by Kenny Dalglish and to a lesser extent BR as some of these players may need a bit more time. Get off FSG's backs or we could end up like the era of Hicks and Gillette!! "

"My thoughts on the issue of signing is that the manager should try as much as possible to get its facts right on the money available to him before he makes any statement to the press and the fans, so that it won't look as if he puts peoples hopes high and at the end nothing happens. It won't be nice to make people feel 2-3 signings will happen and at the end its only 1person that come in. "

"Funny how so many can comment on here yet still miss the point. Everyone in football will tell you that players reach their peak around 26, 27. FSG wont even look at these players cuz they cost money and after a 3 yr contract they wont get much return. FSG have made it clear that its ALL about resale value, not 3 yrs of quality football....

"...When Suarez value goes over 50 million he'll be sold. As will Sterling etc. We need to be buying players at the top of their game and letting the young players try to get their place in the team. Thats how we always did it. We bought young players and the played in the reserves for 2 years before even getting near the first team because we first had a team full of top top quality."

"Sterling has 10 yrs yet to become a footballer yet he is first choice in a forard position. We need to invest in top quality players not only to challenge but to bring these young lads through over the next few years. Thats where my complaint with FSG is coming from. "

"All this talk of FSG being weary after the funds were wasted last season is just lame excuses.Going into a business they didnt know anything about was always going ot be a risk & financial losses are always part of that risk. If they werent prepared for that then they should not have bought the club & should be willing to sell it now."

"Apart from Stevie G. How many of the players who stroll about Anfield week in week out have actually had to earn their place in a Liverpool team. Not too many. Thats why we need top quality transfers in. To make the mediocre players who were bought as hopefuls yet walked straight into the team actually up their game and earn the right to play."
