"Too ambitious? By all accounts we have targeted decent players but failed to make a bid or offered too little allowing other teams to come in and take them under our noses.

By Dec last year, I had no idea that we would score so many goals up to May & finish in 7th. I was confident in Studge, but knew nothing of Couts. That's surely the beauty of the game?

"FSG will sign or loan a couple of cheap players. Because the support expect no signings, they will be grateful. FSG will throw a few crumbs whilst raking it in. Rebuilding the club into the worlds biggest mid table club. Cashing in on the Liverpool brand. "

"If willian to Chelsea means that Mata will become available we need to bid up to 45. That would be the signing that could take us to the next level. Kelly can cover centre back which is his original position. If we really needed to strengthen there we would have bought already. Don't forget Skrtel either."

"Just like to say to all the fans that were putting ridiculous posts about missing out on Willian & ging LFC off hope u feel stupid now. He obviously likes the money, all set for spurs & praising them up. Oh no he's had his head turned again by chelsea for obviously more money. Don't want or need players like that at LFC. Walk On"

Give Rodgers the financial backing that he needs and TRULY deservers after the wonders he has done with the team and the signings he have made so far!! should have had Willian long before Spurs came into the picture if he had the money backing from the owners and give us a new MD cause Ayre aint good enough"

"Much of that message was directed at the owners rather than the fans. BR constanly saying we need quality to climb, yet the owners have the final say. It seems to me hes been told hes too ambitious with his targets. What a job, no support from the owners and very little from you fans. I believe hes doing well, considering hes got to fight with one hand tied behind his back."

"I think it's all very well demanding marquee signings. But judging by these comments, it seems as if Willian snubbed us. Mkhitaryan and Costa also snubbed us earlier in the window. There's not much we can do, really. Give BR some slack, he's trying, but the players don't want to come..."

"Rodgers admitted the owners wouldnt sanction the deal for willian,just goes to prove their lack of ambition.I think they need to make a statement as to what their plans are cus it is not to challenge for top 4 that for sure.3 years in and were no better off,Were winners they said:What at dominos?"

"Some of you haha such fools. "Llori in Coates out", can u read? Coates out for season, also if people would do a little research and stop getting on Brendan's back about singings you'd realise its FSG who aren't putting up the money for the top signings (30m worth). As for wisdom I do think he needs experience in cb as he showed he couldn't handle Celtic very well in the pre season."

Man for man our first team is better, it's the depth that we lacked last season so chill out relax and be patient. Getting angry on here ain't gonna do u any good or anyone else any good."

"Funny how at the start of last season everyone was saying patience is needed to get us back to top, after one season I see comments on here like this, we knew there wouldn't be massive signings and probably won't ever be until we get champions league football. Funny how people say spurs are new Leeds yet your all calling for us to make 30 or 40m signings. "

"Lot of people giving BR a hard time which is a bit harsh. He's building a squad, a team and a style of football. He's not responsible for the financial side of Club. FSG have been burned by the wastefulness of Camoli. They are more cautious now and rightfully so. FSG are going to develop Anfield and are trying to support BR but they have limits. We must realize this and be patient."
