    Torres would have been perfect for a team like Arsenal, he would have linked up well with Fabregas. At Liverpool all he's gonna get is long balls chucked at him, yeah he's tall and good in the year but he doesn't strike me as the sort of player that likes a constant flurry of long balls directed at him, he's the sort of player that likes a good through ball or an intelligent pass towards him and Fabregas is the sort of player that can give him those passes. Mark my words Torres will flop at Liverpool. He should have gone to Arsenal or Man Utd who both play proper football.

    I'm excited to see what Torres can do. I am hoping Rafa will improve the front lines a little more before the transfer window closes but I've got no complaints about the Torres signing.

    Exactly what i was saying.

    Earlier this expert said that Torres is a good signing for Liverpool and i agree, he said that at 15 million it's a proper buy. But at 27 million it could be a bit dodgy. Torres' best season has seen him score 19 goals and at 27 million you should really be looking for a 25-30 goal a season guarateed striker.

    Don't get me wrong I think Torres could do well, it's just a question of at 27 million is it a gamble that could prove devastating or could prove to be awesome.

    Do i believe signing Torres will give them the edge on the Premiership?, no i think they need to sign some more players before they can even think about the championship, including some wingers. I don't care what anybody sais Jermaine Pennant is crap.

    Just confirmation.

    Phaded, in the premiership there AREN'T any strikers like that, especially for 25-30. Henry did it, when he was REALLY on his ball, but there haven't been any for a while if you don't count him.

    He was worth 50-70 at his prime

    Ruud Van Nistelrooy. The question is though do you really think Torres was worth the 27mill gamble? especially in a league were hardly any, IF any, Spanish strikers have made their mark. I maybe sounding bitter and in truth i would of liked United to sign him, but not at 27mill.

    And besides i meant 25-30 goals in the Spanish league, I mean look at Diego Forlan, absolutely crap in Premiership and couldn't score anything, look at him now he's absolutely storming in La Liga. Completely different leagues.

    If we are talking about Arsenal here which i was, then they may be owned by English people, but Arsenal doesn't field 1 British player, all they have is Walcott and Hoyt and you never seen them lol.

    And Firefox you can update the thread now, Torres has signed for Liverpool just saw the press conference.

    Yup deals done. The real number was near 20mil for Torres. The Luis Garcia transfer was a separate deal altogether (So it wasn't money plus a player.)

    I wanted Rafa to get rid of the tank Sissoko (The guy couldn't pass a ball if his life depended on it.) But we now have so many freaking midfielders its stupid. We need a left back, a right back and two wingers. I can see Liverpool getting Simao for the right. So we will have him and Pennant, so that'll do us. The left side though is the problem. Gonzalez and the money leecher Kewell doesn't fill me with confidence...

    We also need another striker (Bellamy should be going soon.) If we would have sold Sissoko we could have gotten around 15mil for him and then bid for Teves... but no, the damn mancs get there first. Just how much has ManU spent now? 80-90mil or something? ><

    I'm so glad Luis Garcia is gone. I can not stand him. Now we need to get rid of Bellamy and Fowler.



    I like Sissoko though, I think he is a hard nosed midfielder with a lot of potential. I don't want to see him go.

    You released Fowler a while back, that's why Torres got the number 9 o_O.

    Bellamy going to west ham for 11m

    Porto winger Ricardo Quaresma is next, liverpool just had a 13.5m bid rejected. Apparently they would sell him for 14.5m.

    What's happened to the Mancini interest?

    It's quite interesting how we've recouped most of our buy of Torres by selling Bellamy and Cisse, so we should have enough for Mancini and Queresma, at least i hope.

    looks like the bellamy to west ham will go through tomorrow. They hit a snag with his contract.

    Looks like were getting Babel and depending on who you beleive its anywhere between 6m -10m. I watched him play in the under chamionship games and he looked good.

    With Quaresma, it looks like porto have offered 16m for him but he is holding out that liverpool will put in an improved offer. If liverpool bid 17m, he will go to anfield. but with all this, benitez is still looking at simao ??

    The last one, it looks as if benitez is after at least 1 defender heinze or milito. I know who i prefer........

    There's no way Heinze will ever go to Liverpool. He's a Man Utd player his only destination would be Spain, if he is leaving.

    Don't be so sure, Manc scum would be the last beings on the planet I'd want on my team but Benitez looks to want the guy. o_O

    It would make history if it happens.
