Ideally maybe we should look to 1 either hire Southamptons or Celtics scouting department or 2 look to see who southampton are buying to replace VVD and anyone else they are rumoured to sell and buy them, instead of wasting £50 million on a player bought by Celtic for 3/ 4 million less than 3 yrs ago.

To be fair though if Liverpool started buying players for 3/ 4 million pounds all the fans would be up in arms. There's people all over these pages saying exactly what you're saying and than there's the other half moaning that the players we're targeting now aren't good enough and just potential. The club can't do right for doing wrong when it comes to transfers sadly, no matter what they do half the fans will be moaning and bringing down anyone we sign.

Posted the same thing a few weeks ago in jest. The thing we don't do though is after buying players of that ilk develop and allow them the opportunity to progress. Worse than that we waste £20 million on players doing this not just 3/ 4!

A friend of mine who is a Leeds fan said that Southampton are looking at there centre back jannson I think his name is.

{Ed007's Note - The guy that was in charge of Celtic's scouting, John Park who 'found' VVD, Wanyama etc is currently unemployed........

The transfer market is not a level playing field. It is rigged.
If a premier league team comes in for a player, double the price and add 10 million.
If a top 6 premier league club comes in, add 20 million.

We can't buy the same player as Leicester or Southampton for the same price. We're underperforming as a club so other clubs know we're cash rich and desperate for success.

We should use the transfer market as an adjunct rather than being dependant on it.
We should be developing young players and giving them an opportunity. We should be maximising our current players, at present they are underperforming.
Do the right things well initially and then use the transfer market to supplement development.

{Ed002's Note - It is not "rigged" - absolute nonsense. Some clubs get charge more than others, some clubs are extremely naive in the transfer market - but it is not rigged.}

Clubs with money get charged more cos they know they can afford it on paper. That is business, not rigging.

How is the transfer market rigged Ron? Absolutely nonsensical comment that is.
If the seller knows the buyer is desperate and has money to throw around, he will use it to his advantage. That's exactly what clubs like Lyon do to get the best price for their players from clubs like LFC.
Its LFC's fault that they are showcasing how desperate they are for success by throwing money around on average players. If the scouting department and the transfer committee actually did their jobs properly and identified quality players before they get marketed to the whole world, we would not be in this predicament. LFC have been far from smart, and being a fan will obviously garner such strong feelings but its no one's fault but the club for being incompetent in the market. And nothing seems to have changed under Klopp's regime so far. Same mistakes being repeated.

1 incorrect word and you get jumped on. Good post Ron except the 'rigged' comment, I understand what you meant.

12 May 2017 06:47:10
It's a fair point we would struggle to get the same price for sure Ron.

How many did he buy flop tho?

You only ever hear about th3 good ones.

We sold sterling for 50 mil
Potentiallt cou for 50 mil
Suarez for 60 mil
Torres for 50 mil

We had agger, reina, auerlio, alonso, sissoko, sturridge, matip all brought in for cheap.

But you all know about the not so good ones.

Indian Buzzer, great post and completely true, people blame everyone but the culpable ones, the club pick these players and pay these inflated prices.
