"BR and Liverpool are building a solid foundation. People complain and moan about our potential targets, but what they don't understand is that we need to establish ourselves again before we can invest in the world class players.

"People seem not to realise that BR is interested in players who fit into his system. Buy Messi into the Stoke team of last year and he will become a flop. I am happy we don't chase players just because they're a hit, but because they'll fit into our system. Countinho didn't flourish at Inter, but because he fits into our play, he hit the ground running. Welcome, Aspas."

"Rodgers have limited founds for this transfer window. Just like last year.I am not modern type of moaning fan. I was very happy when we sign Sturridge and Coutinho. Thery are very good players.

"Who heard about Kevin Keegan before Liverpool bought him? That you havent heard about a player does not make him bad afterall everyone knew Andy Carroll and we have seen what kind of player he has become. He is a good player if u watch him closely. If Suarez leaves for 50,then Aubemeyang n Mkhitiryan will be good with d fund. "

"This is great news for Liverpool, useful business done early in the window. I feel we need still need an aerially powerful CB (papadopolous) and a strong holding midfielder. Mkhitaryan would be the icing on the cake and, in my opinion, this would give us a similar, if not better, squad on paper than many of the top 4 teams. YNWA Iago (haha the aladdin parrot)."

"flowen10, get a reality check ok? Navas, cavani, Schurlle etc all want CL soccer or Europa at least and a nice pay check. Can LFC meet any of that criteria next season? No. Let's support our team with this team building and revival. Top 4 come next year and we can be appealing. right now WE R NOT!"

"Good or bad signing, time will tell. But not to welcome and encourage the lad, when he hasn't even kicked a ball for us, is not Liverpool. He made it clear Liverpool was the only club he wanted to come to. That, in itself, is reason enough to support. Success depends on many things, but our support should be unconditional.

"Would have been great player if we had signed him during the time when Alonso, Masch, Torres, Gerrad (in peak),Pepe (at uncofused state), etc were with us. The team had a winning mentality.

"The only reason Suarez going Madrid is that we do not seem close enough to win anything/ even may not qualify for UCL. I do not blame him if he leaves. The good players should be persuaded by showing something special. The only special thing which LFC has is 'most dedicated and passionate fans.
