we need 1 CB which is 1st team quality, I think with the emergence of Kelly and Wisdom - with Coates still here we have enough options defensively. I would love to see Alonso and Eriksen but I think thats wishful thinking. Last thing we need is 1 CF/WF. Then I think we will have a compeive squad

"January was pretty good, but august equally poor. but even better was getting Downing and Hendo in such form. Those two have been like new signings. We will need to sell players if we are going to go shopping and I hink quite a few will be leaving at the end of the season. "

"Yes more quality is needed. my sugestion is that we prepare well and aim for the trophy next season. that is the best way to go into top 4 currently. i think Mancity,Manu & Chelsea will be after the trophy which makes top 4 more difficult. its abit risky to go into next season aiming for just top 4 coz when things dont go well you end up in 5th,6th or 7th. aim higher thats my opinion. YNWA."

"If Skrtel isn't able to step up his performances then we may need a new CB, or the introduction of Kelly may cover it. I do think we need a powerful midfielder which is why I hope we do go for Diame as he actually brings the ball out of midfield. Also a left footed winger to play on the right would be nice, I've been very impressed with Downing lately but we need goals from that area"

"The players might have done very well by Swansea standards, but by LFC standards the season has been poor. We all expect a 15 to 20m spend in summer so FSG can pocket a wad from the 60m TV rights. There is unrest brewing, and next season will have expectations. Patience is growing thin. "

"I hope we don't spend alot because we simply don't need to. We've got a pretty deep, young squad now. Obviously the priority is a CB and possibly another full back. Attacking wise we have quite alot of options. Wouldn't be against getting someone like Granero in, just for a bit of control in the midfield. "

Sterling to come back in. Kelly and coates. It's promising. Another sammi hyppia for 300k would be good! Dutch division 2"

Alonso, otherwise I hope Coady can progress, ERIKSEN deffo! and a winger/striker (well known of lesser known gem) that should be able to get us in top 4 and then we can add with a keeper and competition for left back if we dont use downing and robinson as back up"

"Alonso is practically begging to come back, so lets just sign him up before we are saying how good he is fo Arsenal or someone else next season! He never had any pace to lose but his passing can take 6 players out the game and he still has at least 3 more years at top level in him!"

"Can't wait for the summer transfer window. If caroll is what he is doing now then a strurrdige-caroll partnership should be interesting to watch. :D If these two are in the strike then we need a much better winger in place of downing.he is slow, less dribbling skills for a winger and low quality cross. A winger , A CB and A classy midfielder should do all the work. :)"

"I think Seb Coates should be given more chances, he's not as bad a player as some of you seem to think, remember, he's still young. Hendo and Downing have taken a while to come good, so Seb also can. Additionally we need cover for Lucas as he's been greatly missed when injured."

"Erikson(Future Gerrard replacement) for me has to be our marquee signing then we go for a Central Defender to replace Carra. We also need a top class RW, I dont think Downing is prolific enough to take us to top 4. After this its about keeping clean sheets and finding the net more against the lower end teams and being more clinical with the top teams. Bring on next seasonb already, cant wait!"

"Just a big shame that Sturridge and Coutinho were not bought in over the summer as we would be much higher up in the league. I think we only need one solid signing at CB and we would actually be good to go for next season. I know many fans would disagree but they need to look at our "whole" squad to realise that we do not need over 3 players. "

"5-3-2 would walk us into top 4 next season if it is played right. It would allow both fullbacks to push forward to provide width. We would have 3 solid CBs with Lucas playing in CDM to provide defensive help. It would allow both Coutinho and Gerrard to push forward and help both strikers. "
