"So far BR has spent just over £1m when you consider the transfers in and out. With Suarez going and no doubt others we should have around £60m - £80m to spend. I would play PC on the left and DS on the right and look to bring in a quality CF and AM. On top of that we need cover or preferably better quality LB, CB and DM brought in. "

"Suarez should be reminded of our tremendous support through all of the ups and downs - just remember that amazing surge of love for Luiz at the last game of the season. If we are not in the CL then I think it would be "fair" on both sides if he went at the end of next season. YNWA"

"I'm a bit skeptical, past statistics will not deliver result. Yes we have bought in 4 to improve but teams above us (except Arsenal) also improved. If we think that all 4 will click from the beginning, that's a big ask also whether Suarez stays or not, we are without our top performer for 6 matches"
Redhotliverpool
11th Jul 2013 17:42
"We should hold out 45 million for Suarez, we cannot let other club bully our transfer. Then increase the price after a set time since it will leave us shorter time to find replacement. we should identify the right player, once Suarez is sold, we can reinvest wisely and quickly,therefore we can hit the ground running from the start of the season. "
WhelanR
11th Jul 2013 17:45
"Well its a statement of intent but the problem remains the same. Can we attract key players with no CL place? We need a top class defender and midfielder (and that's with keeping Suarez). Interesting 5 weeks ahead.."
Daxalea
11th Jul 2013 17:50
"I agree with classANDsuccess. You can't just go and "buy" any player. Even if we had £150m for 1 player we could not get Messi or Ronaldo. They want a stage and that stage is CL. BUT I do think the LFC name will bring in the next generation of world class talent!! Fingers crossed it does!!"

11th Jul 2013 17:54
"he probably only has 40 million to spend on key players and if that is so, don't expect more than 2, unless LS moves on. He did say players we can afford, too right as well, no point in paying stupid money on someone who could fail, had enough of those already"

How do you think City became a force now competing for everything, they paid over the odds to make sure they could compete, as did PSG and now Monoco, Chelsea.

"Why do people want to keep Suarez? He may be world class but the way he is treating the club he has to go. At the moment he is worth £40m at least, if we keep him, I can see him having a bad atude and underperforming next season. Get 2 from Honda, Bernard or Eriksen or 1 of them & a quality CF. Then cover for DM & LB & a replacement for CB if Skyrtl leaves."

"Enrique needs competition as he is far from being a consistent player... and Lucas needs back up... Joe Allen cannot handle DM. It will be interesting to see who leaves, stays and comes in.

"With the sale of Carroll and Shelvey and what we have brought in, we have a net spend of what? 3M? It looks pretty good for us if we still have the estimated 20M BR was given to spend and with the sale of Suarez we could very well have a combined total of 60M left to spend on new recruits.

" BR, look no further than Wesley Sneijder. The total package. Very creative in finale 3rd, strong shot from outside, set piece specialist, great assists/linkup w/forward players, can get the ball from defenders to forwards & most importantly he's EXPERIENCED & A WINNER. He'll give us 2-3 great seasons. So what if he cost us 10-12 mil. "

"For me this is a disturbing statement because it means that Rodgers doesn't consider the four players he has bought in so far to be first-teamers. His first priority should surely have been to sign players that will improve the starting line-up, not sit on the bench. What good is that ? "

"I believe it when I see some decent players signing if they do get FSG to put funds into getting a few top players well then Suarez might stay if he thinks we can get UP THE league and fight for the le. Eriksen and Muriel & Cissoko push it to Diame lets see I wonder will we even get one of them ."

"IMHO, I don't thing we need another CB. Agger, Skrtel, Kolo and Coates are all good options. We have class in Agger and Skrtel, experience with Kolo and potential with Coates. If we need a defender it would be a LB to challenge Jose. "

"We need another striker who can score 15 goals plus. Hooper from Celtic fits the bill and is cheap. I don't think Borini is going to score 15 plus. He is useful squad member who will improve but we need quality cover for Suarez/Sturridge to compete. Also Bernard our team/squad will be able to compete!"

"I love to watch Luis Saurez play and I have wanted him to stay, but I am now looking at this from another angle. I do not like waiting for a player to put in a transfer request. I believe it weakens the clubs bargaining ability. If he truly wants to go then get the most you can now. We can grab some first team quality with the money. (Cont). "

"I doubt he will sign any more then 1-2 ... unless suarez leaves he will probably get an attacking midfielder and defender, he wont do to much more, 6 players in one window is very good business, 4 squad players and 2 to jump straight into starting line up, anyway leave all this up to BR thats why he gets paid to manage the team and I pay to watch them :-)"

"Midfield was our problem last season too many times we were bullied/outplayed there. A strong tough tackling DM and a quality LW is what we need. Defence and Keepers are sorted so long as no one leaves. Then it is just the Suarez situation. World class or not he has to go, and I would get a quality RW instead. Sturridge will thrive as the main man up front with Coutinho behind him. "

"Let's not kid ourselves, Suarez is going. He wants champ league. Hopefully he'll honour his time & train and not do the South American thing and vanish until sorted. He wont hand a request as he'll lose too much. He'll just spout off in the media to voice his side. Eriksen would top my list with Sakho or papadopoulos. If we have big money then we should be go for Benteke and showing some intent. "
