If we really lack funds I can see an idea in getting Stewart on a free and selling McNair for around 5 million. Spend that money on some creativity. 

No brainer

Not blown away with the Stewart link, it has a Paddy McNair relegated with Sunderland and is available vibe to it. 
 

The problem I have is I’m not sure if it’s Warnock identifying the players, in which case I’d feel more positive. Or if it’s the recruitment team identifying the players who we can get and saying, take him or leave him. 
 

I think a lot of the uncertainty with transfers comes from the lack of success from the recruitment team from previous deals. I always feel like we get a player because they’re available rather than identifying them to fit a gap in the team for role X in a certain system. 
 

Does anyone else feel like that or is it just me and my 3 drinks in ramblings?
 

 

Liverpool keep buying players from relegated teams.  It is possible to get good players from bad teams.

The Stewart £8m thing to Hull was weird. That was £1m less than Robertson who went the other way. I think it was done like that for the books. No way was he worth £8m.

Liverpool seem to be able to sell players for outrageous fees.

Bournemouth paid thrm approximately 40 mil for Dominic Solanke, Jordan Ibe and Brad Smith 🤕🤮

Sheff Wed just got Dunkley for free from Wigan, was he any good last season? 

Don’t think Wigan fans were too inspired by him tbf. Thought we should’ve been having a look on a free though. 
 

Theres is definitely players that I’d like for cheap from Wigan the likes of Lowe and Kipre in particular

Our way of recruitment is so helta skelta I think we are basically chasing all the players that agents are throwing around the championship.  We need to uncover another Stuani or Kike

They cost about £3mill each, we may need to aim a little lower

Think the Murphy link will depend on what his brother thought of NW. Stewart always looked a tidy player, when I've watched Liverpool's games, just not good enough for them. Same as Wilson is a cracking footballer but will never make the Liverpool first team.

Another defensive player. Are we going to go through another window where we don’t address our creativity fgs. 

I think we DO need a holding midfield player taking some pressure off the defence

I agree, Saville, McNair and Howson are not holding midfielders. I'd take Stewart!

    • 1. Bettinelli Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola Howson, Tav, Morsy Watmore, Britt, Johnson 2. Given our record at the City ground, I'd take a draw. But do think we should look at this game as a chance to pick up 3 points. 3. Britt has a 100% conversion rate when it comes to penalties this season (so far). 4. Hughton can and possibly will, but I'm not sure it'll be this season. 5. Being sat in 7th place surely makes us a playoff candidate now. I think this season we'll be there or there abouts, but not sure we'll actually end up in the playoff spots come match day 46. 6. Pep will. 7. McDonald's I'd say, but even so their quality control is as consistent as Marv's crosses into the box.   
    • Bryn Morris (touted as the next big academy graduate at one stage) has joined Northampton on loan from Portsmouth. Hopefully he can get a decent amount of game time at the Cobblers, he's not really had a look in at Portsmouth.
    • Haha sorry @Brunners. I thought some other poster made the comment about you regarding Roberts. Everything @BillyWoofs_shinpad said bar his comment about Brunners. Whole hearteldy disagree with that particular comment*
    • Roberts will not play for us, Brit unfortunately will.  Burger King or McDonalds, if I had to choose, BK but as fat as I am I don’t particularly buy BK, MD or that finger licking franchise crap.    Still pretty angry about the last game but ha, for no apparent reason I’ll go for a draw.
