I know a lot of you armchair commentators will be ranting about our transfer policy and telling Ayre to just go get him at any price, but realistically this is the business model to follow, make an offer, if they want too much then move on. We are not desperate.

"By the way, what's the latest on Coates? Still injured? I was really starting to rate him before he got injured. I think he could be the answer to our cover at CB, more savings in the transfer market."

"I agree with not overpaying, maybe a little bit more to pry him away, but if we stand firm consistently clubs will know they cant rip up us off, but I would like this lad at the club."

"MARS429 - Coates has been named in the Uruguay World Cup squad. So definately over his injury. I agree with bit shaky at the beginning but before injury was showing real promise. "

"sometimes if a player is in high demand you have to pay a little more than you originally wanted. but like the lallana deal they should give a take it or leave it price then look elsewhere if they dont accept. we cant get into a bidding war with clubs like chelsea "

4th Jun 2014 9:47
"hoping - we didn't give in to soton, we've allegedly upped our offer to 25M, that's called haggling, they're holding out for 30M, we'd be foolish to pay that much, not only is it double what Lallana is worth it would also set a bad precedent for future dealings with other clubs."

"No mars429 totally agree, we nearly won the title last year we don't need a LB desperate as Flanno was break out of the season with raheem, and we got enrique to come back who i rate highly. If any a CB better than Kolo as back up for other 3, Cos if injury free our defence would of been good last year was only the 4 different pairings that hurt our flow."

"Totally agree Mars429... Sick of coming on here and skysports and reading comments from so called fans saying sack Ayres. Offer what we are willing to pay and if they don't accept or want more move on. "

"This is something LFC should have done 7 years ago; fork out top coin for a top FB. Okay, he's still a prospect but from what I've seen he can come in and take that stop immediately. He has devastating pace, we need this raw pace back there. The way we go about transfers is the right way, this money ain't growing on trees."

"Very shrewd words MARS429. Given the increasing number of clubs paying over the top prices, I'm 100% behind the transfer committee's strategy and approach. Both Lallana and Moreno are being auctioned for ridiculous prices based on purely subjective evaluations. Never again will this club have its pants pulled down over another transfer as they were when the club signed Carroll and Downing"

"Why is Everyone so concerned about money. Are you forgetting the owners are billionaires? We're not man city but our owners spent over 80 Mil on a baseball players. Losing an awesome wing back for the sake of 200k is ridiculous. Sometimes you just need to pay the price it seems fair for a player of morenos quality in the current market "

"Example; Dortmund have just bought top striker from Serie A for £15 million no hassle. If that was an English club then that price would be double with all the hassle that goes with it. Euro clubs look after their own in my opinion. Let's hope Sevilla prove me wrong."

"coolerthankewell - we have to start thinking about FFP. dont forget we missed out on europe last season so revenue was down and our last accounts reported a £5om loss so that has to be made up or we will be fined like City"

"Coutinho10?11 - I would not negotiate like that. You tempt them in bud, take your time, there is no hurry. It's clear Sevilla are a selling club, the Spurs of Spain. So why go in there all aggressive and all guns blazing? We take our time, tease them, draw the player in. Ayre gets stick but people forget some of the good deals he has done, Luis for £22m seems a bargain."

"Kingwillis - I understand what you say about tempting in and taking our time, but we have been burned in the past using that way. Other clubs come in and pay a couple of grand more than what we offer and get the player from under our noses. My biggest frustration with our transfer team, is that are just too slow!"
Kingwillis10
4th Jun 2014 11:59
"Kopite1763 - Yes, other clubs came in and paid too much. Willian was never worth that much and still isn't. Lamela wasn't either. My premise was not going in rash with a bid that is a little over the valuation just to confirm the deal. These extra £2/3m add-on's add up. It might no seem like it but there is many players put there, not just Moreno. There is no hurry here."
Kopite1763
4th Jun 2014 12:15
"Kingwillis - You make a fair point, but would you not agree, we are a bit slow off the mark when it comes to transfers? We always seem to hit a snag, or there are complications, whereas other clubs get the deal done and dusted, no problem."

"kopite i think our biggest stumbling block is our wage structure. if you were offered £50k per week plus bonuses or another club offered £80k per week which would you choose?"

"I remember we bid £12m for Downing which got rejected, then we bid £15m two hours later - then we bid £20. This is crazy. Camoli was to blame, but it is still an example of our idiocy in years. People say, "we won't do Carroll again" but we did 6 times after him. This needs to stop, If £16m-£18m isn't enough, move on, anything else is crazy. "

"If the price is 16 .2 mil & LFC are rumoured to have made offer of 16 mil then they should up the offer to 16.2 mil and get on with the deal if BR has made Moreno a priority target"

"Unfortunately we are a bit thin for cover, therefore a bit desperate. We need to close the deals and if it means paying a little bit more then so be it. Rather that than left with a small squad."

"Business model or not we need to start closing deals a bit quicker..last season they talked and talked about salah for mts then Chelsea enter the race and with in a few days he was these player.by the way are you not a armchair commentator you no different to the rest on this site,Mr MARS429"

"$200k is nothing. Dunkin and garuda can pay for it. Ffp is a joke anyway it hasn't stopped psg from paying 50 Mil for Luiz. If they were serious they'd kick them out of Europe. I will be furious if we end up with Bertrand because we are too stingy to fork out 200k for a very good left back in Moreno. "

"LFCLJ Chelsea is going to get better so the defence could be needed to improve and definitely get better cover to one of the side back positions because we only have Johnson, Enrique and Flanagan. If we gonna battle in the CL we must improve the defence."

"Red Coutinho - I wouldn't consider myself a commentator, I have faith in the transfer team, and I have upmost faith in BR, so I don't go blagging my opinion on all this gossip merely open it up to wider debate....What makes u think Coates will be shipped out?"

4th Jun 2014 14:51
"MARS429, if you were in Ayre's position i would call for your head. We are in the CL and BR is away about that and he needs players he targeted otherwise it will frustrate him as a coach. CL needs a divers squad with great abilities."

"Need to spend money to get these players in. Does anyone honestly believe that if we don't make these kind of purchases we'll 'compete' for the league ttitle and give it a go in the CL? We finished second with no Europe and a rather embarressing run in the cups. Get serious! Get these players!"

"Is Allen valued more than Suso? Tell me one thing Allen has over the young spanish lad. One thing. Can Allen displace Costa, the whole Barca mid give Real lots to think about. Never in young Allens wildest dreams. How many games has Allen been scolded by Gerrard, Suarez and others for lacking loins"
