Wait, whoa there willy, this could be a breakthrough in your case.... You were actually able to admit that you gauge Chelsea's success by comparing them to Liverpool? We're making real progress this session. Well done you!

But I'm afraid that's time for today.

I think he's decent, needs good corners and good wingers so..................a NO. Unless we want a Carroll/Fletcher partnership.

Only a point and two goals better off than last year...Anyone bar King Kenny would be scrutinized by the Liverpool faithful.

King Kenny isn't the man to take the pool any further IMO, he's a dinosaur who's out of tune with the modern game.

King Kenny is a hero to the pool fans but he wont ever get Liverpool challenging for major honors, i also doubt he'd ever be capable of getting ye a top four finish.
A dinosaur, considering his record against Chelsea...........

Was actually going to reply seriously but its a Chelsea fan giving advice on managers, the last thing we want.

Basically heed the advice, do the opposite.

Good grief... is this the level of player we're looking at to push on? We'll be in the same situation next year if thats the case. The club really needs to take a look at itself if signing average British players continues to be the modus operandi in transfer windows. We're already overstocked on them at this stage.

Have to disagree about dissing Fletcher as I said earlier today he is what Carroll should be, a scruffy goal scorer. Every team needs one and Dirk Kuyt won't be here forever! 8 million would be a good buy just have to find a buyer for Andy. Matt Jarvis likewise, assists and goals from out wide.

Almost depressing to see someone say that the player that Andy Carroll should be, would be a good buy at £8m.

It is almost like saying the club spent £35m on a player that looked like he could be as good as Fletcher.

When I made the earlier mention of Fletcher it prompted me to think back to Carrolls signing and just why the fvck it happened and no still I can't see what prompted the rush to spend the Torres cheque.

There is a chasm in quality between Fletcher and an Aguero. There is also a number of better options than Fletcher without having to resort to a £30/40 million player that would be out of our reach at the moment.

We've not won with Gerrard in the team in the 6 games he's started since his comeback from injury. No doubt he would've made more use of the ball than Adam, but I don't think he'd have added much. Even his finishing has been exceptionally poor this year.

His long range shooting has been hot garbage, sure, but has he had much finishing to do? I remember one beauty against Newcastle but not many other chances from inside the box.

On fletcher, a perfect backup signing if the 35m quid spent on Carroll had been spent on a 35m quid player (or spending a bit less but making the difference up in a higher wage).
Having good local players happy to be at a big club, happy to not play all the time but being of decent quality is important. For that to be relevant you need superstars keeping them out of the team.
