Steven1988lfc
4th Jul 2013 2:02
"I can't believe so many people are criticising Joe Allen because of this sale! For one! They play completely different positions.. Joe is a deep laying playmaker who links the whole game up from deep! He uses the ball so much better than Jonjo! JJ is known for being more rash.. Whether its passing or being carded! Joe is so much more mobile and will prove great business......."
Steven1988lfc
4th Jul 2013 2:05
"(Cont) Joe was our best player in the opening 2 months by a clear mile.. Although I liked Jonjo I didn't believe he was a player that can make a difference.. Players like Coutinho,Mkhitaryan, Alberto will play fast mobile and fluent football and that's something I think Jonjo cannot do.. Whereas Jonjo has great passing ability over distance! I'm very happy with our business so far this window.. "

"Good luck Shelvey, I honestly thought you would be a top player for us. I will remember when you man handled Yaya Toure in the 2-2 home draw at the start of last season. It's a shame to see you go but I also think it's good you went to Swansea, you will get games and fit right in by expressing yourself. Would love to see you back in 4 years time on a free! YNWA fella "
Kingwillis10
4th Jul 2013 9:27
"It's not as if he has been pushed out, BR is honest with his players and tells them that they aren't going to play every game, Jonjo got chances, he took them and sometimes didn't. It's natural but none of you know all the variables, maybe his agent was hounding out a deal or maybe he just wanted more games. Get of BR's back god sake he's doing a top job. Luis Alberto will be a better player."

"Gutted to see Jonjo go, he does show glimpses of his great potential, England U21 regular, need more games to develop his full potential, must learn to control his aggression on the pitch, somehow his commitment does remind me of the young Stevie G, hope he would be back to LFC once he has matured on his game and potential, good luck & all the best!"
WhelanR
4th Jul 2013 19:56
"Kenny go on a spending spree?? This may surprise people. Kennys spend (players bought + sold) = £41m. Brendans spend so far incl shelve sale (players bought and sold) = £46.5m. We will probably spend another £15m+ net by season end. Lets be fair to the King but also Brendan. Coutinho and Sturridge were great deals"

"Wheelan, I must hand it to you in your valiant and futile attempts at exonerating the King of his horrendous foray into the market. You can pull every accounting trick you know or dress it up in anyway you see fit, but I am afraid KK was simply out of his depth and was in danger of tarnishing his and LFC legacy and had to go. "

"Wheelan, its not the level of expenditure but the quality and more importantly the value if it goes awry. The loss on AC is almost criminal and alone is not condonable. We will take massive hits on Downing and Hendo for little memorable displays. Your loyalty to KK is at the expense of LFC and is equally almost criminal. "
