We are losing Reina and Suarez and possibly Agger too. We are being fed bull crap about the major signings, trust me! We won't be getting anyone else.

"Looking at the bench in lndonesia today, one can see the lack of depth. Borini,Assaidi,Ibe and Hendo are the only potentials we have there. We need another keeper in case of an injury to Mignolet. there is no defensive midfielder besides Lucas in the first 11. I hope to see Assaidi getting more game time coz he is certainly a goal threat. Waiting for the game to start"

"Lie no.1 comes out, so much for Mignolet being brought in to push Pepe, push him out was the actual plan. To send him out on loan, at least sell him and get some money for him. Lies, lies and lack of ambition that's all FSG seem capable of, our LFC are being made to look a bunch of fools, Our best keeper out on loan...what a bunch of A...holes!"

"BR said "I've spoke to Pepe about bringing in quality competition for the goalkeeper position and he agrees" did he agree to go out on loan. 9-11 million for one keeper then let a better one go out loan, i don't get it, its a joke, just not a funny one :-S"

"The big football stars of today only care about the huge amounts they will get paid, CL Football and what colour Bentley they will buy. They don't care about the history of the clubs or have any loyalty to them. Torres, Suarez case in point.

"No offense but Reina was losing his touch last season so it's a good move to sign Mignolet. Reina requested for loan move I believe. Even if we loose Suarez it's for a good amount of money which we can spend on other good players. We're not losing Agger. So, just wait & see mates."

"Was Coutinho a star when we signed him? I rate Aspas, Mignolet and Alberto a lot. And Toure was great business as an experienced replacement for Carra. Reina was on £120,000 a week, Mignolet was player of the North East last season so he is world class or heading that way. "
