The new Transfers & Rumours thread

Same as the off-topic threads, the old transfers and rumours thread got too big, so here's the new one!

Finally I can view this thread on Tapatalk without it skipping 10 pages past the last post.

My thoughts on potential January targets based on expert Youtube, FIFA and FM scouting.

Nikica Jelavić: 26 year old Croat striker playing in Scotland...hmm no thanks. Just seems like a poacher having a hot streak.

David Texeira: 20 year old Uruguayan striker playing in Holland. Too soon to spend big money on but having more Uruguayans can't be a bad thing. Nothing special in his highlights but he gets better service in Groningen than he'd get from Downing or Henderson. Again, no, but if he's less than 5M I'd take a punt.

Luuk De Jong: 21 year old Dutch striker/winger playing in Holland. Seems like a mix between Kuyt and Bendtner. Doesn't get the heart racing tbf but I'd definitely take him on low wages.

Junior Hoilett 21 year old Canadian winger. YES please. He has skill, flair and pace and he's not British.

Milos Krasic: 27 year old Serbian winger. Don't we love those :Jovanovic:. Much quicker and better than Downing, he'd be superb on loan with an option to buy. If he wants high wages, no thanks.

Scott Sinclair: 22 year old English winger. Would add pace but that's about it. Prefer Hoilett simply because he's not English.

Bent/Defoe : Old, English and on big wages.

Comolli flew to Holland on Friday night, apparently to tie up the Texeira deal.

Or maybe just to hit the red lights and pot cafes.

Teixeira? If anything, Liverpool should be looking to sign someone like Dušan Tadić who's provided 30 assists in 60 games as well as 10 goals on top of everything since arriving at Groningen at the start. The only players who provided more assists in Europe than him last season were a certain Messi and Özil.

Btw, a guy like Teixeira won't improve Liverpool, he's barely making a difference in Eredivisie and would struggle big time if Tadić wasn't around because the latter have assisted 50% of his goals during the first part of the season, plus he's not prolific, the goals won't start flying with him in the starting line-up.

Someone on Rawk mentioned Tadić too. Not seen him play yet. It's just like us to buy the wrong player who wont improve us and ignore the one who will anyway.

We don't need Shaqiri, we have... Stewart "I'm better than 20m GBP" Downing!

Somewhere near the end of time
The noise will pass and the dust will settle
And you'll be on my mind

doesnt like we are keen adding anybody @ all other than a younger player who would probaly be coming off the bench a majority of the time...De Jong/Texiera

I know January isnt the "ideal" time to do business but this squad as so many holes, unless Kenny plans for this squad to overachieve greatly like we did in the 2nd half of last season then we are ****ed and looking @ 6/7th place once more

It was me.

I think Shaqiri and Tadic would definitely fit the FSG mould. So i did a bit of research on Texiera, and apparently he hasn't done all that well in Holland as Zoric stated and some people are actually baffled we are going for him. Barely any reports of this in Holland btw.

Btw, it would be interesting if we did go for Shaqiri and Tadic how well they would get along. Shemyy knows what im on about

Sow close to fenerbache for 12m

I can understand not wanting to buy players this window, as its a tough time to do business but imo (and we dont want another 35million disaster) @ the very least we should be loaning players in with options to buy plenty of players who can fill some of the many voids we have, but arent getting enough playing time at their respective clubs for whatever reason

I would take Barrios (Dortmund), Krasic (Juve), Diarra (Real), Sahin? (Real)

I haven't missed one Groningen-game in the last two years and seen every single Teixeira have played so far. Baffling is the right word, I simply can't understand why Liverpool would like to sign him for €12 million..

Are you really gonna spend 9 mil pounds on David Teixiera ?

I mean granted I didn't see him other then the Mundialito - and tbh I kinda liked him as a prospect the first time I saw him and overall i'd be all for getting him for like 3 mil - and maybe he improoved his game in Holland.

But 9 milion pounds?

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.
