"Didn't Elia say that he wants to play for a 'Big European Team' and then didn't include Liverpool in his list of dream moves? He said things like Man Utd and Real Madrid, and completely missed Liverpool out. I'm not liking him. "

"Seems like a good idea to be investing in our Academy, but shouldn't we be investing more in the first team i.e. buying players like Suarez, Elia and Honda? YNWA"

"we should be trying to sign the new Poulsen and the new Konchesky,right Mr John Henry??also El Hadji Diouf would be a very good signing..Typical Yankies..to slow on making decisions and so far they dont a lot different than Hicks and Gillet...SIGN US PLAYERS!!!"

"the good part is that i've heard he's a tall, quick striker who can also play as a winger and a player with great potential. not so great is that he's already had fall outs with not only arsenal's coaching staff and management, but also blackburn's. "

"Banton is a brilliant young player. I saw him play for Blackburn U18s a couple of times and he stood out for his pace and trickery on the wing. He can beat the full-back and can shoot, which is always a good thing. Great signing."

"Just saying this guy is an amazing talant ive seen him play a fair bit and he is really talented, but he signed a few days ago i dont know why lfc have only just announced it because i spoke to the young lad on facebook as i thought he was on trial and he said signed and this was on the 11th of january "

"welcome to the lad, thats what everyone meant I am sure... As we know, LFC are always quiet on the transfer front until the deal is done. Patience is called for, the news will be along in due course :)"

"Nice support guys, a young lad signs and all you do is slate him for not being a 20million pound signing. I'm equally annoyed at us not buying players but for F*#k sake get behind the team & the players. Good luck Jason, I hope you do well. YNWA"

"Given that we already have some pretty useful wingers ast our youngsters, this guy must be impressive if we think he can be a good player for us. Welcome Jason !"

"this blind faith you're having people..i love Liverpool,i love King Kenny,i love most of our players,but i cant be proud as a Liverpool supporter to ask for europa league qualification..Every year,Liverpool must target all trophies..We are the greatest club in england and have fallen way down.."

"Seriously lads alot of you need to take a look at yourselfs too many of yous are just in it for the glory days. Too many of you seem too interested in BUYING success do you want to be known as Liverpool the club who had to BUY the league? I DONT! I want players who play for the shirt not for the money that is the LFC way. Im fully behind NESV and their youth development strategy. "

"Jst saw what Lfcview said and agree 100%, we don't want to be a club that is attractive because of massive wages, getting back to the top will take tme and patience. With players like Suso Pacheco and others waiting on the wings the future is bright"
LuisSuarez76
15th Jan 2011 3:28
"Agree 100% with LFCview, with players such as Suso and pacheco waiting on the wings the future is bright, Arsenals model is a one to admire and look where their team is not, the completely outpassed and played city and have spent about 1/100 of what they have spent, if NESV continue our youth systems could be far ahead of others (not arsenal) and the financial rules are coming in to play."

"'But United lost out to Tottenham in their pursuit of [Gareth] Bale four years ago, the then 17-year-old Southampton prodigy choosing White Hart Lane over Old Trafford in a 10million deal.' Just shows you why 10m is not too much for a 17-year-old. Come on, John Henry!"

"I've not seen Banton playing but I'm worried that LFC is signing a lot of players that big clubs have let go. For example Johnson (Mourinho) and Cole (Anceloti) were not good enough for Chelsea. And someone who Wenger didn't want to keep? "

"Nothing to do with Jason Banton,but I have just read the rumour about Fabio Coentrao.MU and RM are interseted in buying him.Lots of LFC fans say he would be a good player for us,I personally would love to see him at LFC,because if he is good enough for MU and RM he is good enough for us. "
