No wonder there is no pressure on Rodgers to finish 4th, we don't have a fornicating chance anyway. I am really fuming at no replacement for Carroll.

I thought we'd signed Samed Yesil to be Carroll's replacement.  ::)
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Now is the comment in my sig about Dalglish starting to make more sense?

Our owners have made our another manager look like a complete and utter fornicating mug.

We're not on our own:

From: http://www.theday.com/article/20120826/SPORT10/308269910/1070/SPORT21

"Boston's Adrian Gonzalez was part of a nine-player trade announced Saturday between the Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers, one in which the Red Sox freed themselves of more than $250 million in salary obligations from now until 2018. Also among those traded were Boston's Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford."

Are FSG going bust?

Eccleston's been sold to Blackpool and according to the Echo Danny Wilson was off too.

Pacheco's loan to Valladolid has fallen through. Can we now use him on the left instead of Henderson.

We were told only recently that there were players 1-11, cover players & development players.

Now surely, anyone with the faintest grip on reality would categorise Morgan & Yesil (£1 million)
as development players??

We have little or no credible cover options up front + 4 campaigns to manage. FFS, we don't even
have anyone who can get on the end of a cross. C'mon, what sort of nonsense are you on about?

Simple thought experiment, Suarez gets injured... :o

Even put the words back in Rodgers mouth & it couldn't possibly be argued that on the pitch we
are now somehow better off that we have no recognised third striker?? (& I'm not even a Rocket
Scientist, but yet I have deduced this by counting with 3 fingers! ;D ).

“You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to see Andy has been a cover player for us and has
been excellent in terms of his attitude and acceptance of where he is at, but as a football club,
I don’t think we are in a position to have £35 million players as third-choice strikers...
This is the challenge I have"


1 small step for Andy, one gigantic leap for West Ham! (& now Spurs have gazumped us again!)

The last few days have turned out to be an embarrassment for the club. Not the fact that we havent signed anyone, in a way its admirable not to see us getting screwed panic buying but just the fact that the squad is now so light up front. We were already in a dire situation as it was but I am dumbfounded we have let Carroll go without having a replacement. As you say Ed what if Suarez gets injured.

The last few days represents Rodgers first major mistake at the club imho. From a playing perspective with the limited time hes had I think hes doing well. But how the hell has he let Carroll go with no replacement. Its farcical and maybe acceptable at a smaller club but is not good enough for LFC.

The owners have huge questions to answer aswell. Id be interested to see their net spend. The longer the stadium issue drags on makes you question whether this is a lessor version of Hicks and Gillett all over again.

Are there similarities appearing with another set of American owners we used to know?

Buck will have a free agent or two lined up to fire us into the top four.

Not sure if it will be a travel agent or newsagent.

Wow even Paul Tomkins thinks we have screwed up in this window. As he says we have probably lost out on Dempsey over the refusal to pay another 1 million pounds. Thats a shocking fact and someone should raise their hand and take responsibility for that one because its amateurish.

Tomkins also goes on to list how many goals he thinks every player should score this season. Personally I think hes being very optimistic. Anywhere this is what he reckons :

Suarez 20, Borini 15, Steven Gerrard 10-15, Sterling 5 (if he plays enough minutes), Sahin 5, Johnson 5, Downing 3-5, Skrtel and Agger (with maybe a nod from Coates) 6 between them, Lucas/Allen 1 or 2, Cole/Shelvey/Henderson 6 between them, Assaidi unknown.

Tomkins reckons the team will score about 80 in all competitions, about 50 in the league. Unless we clean up our defence and start winning 1 nils 50 goals would leave us nowhere again.

Anyway heres the link to Tomkins article. If hes sounding a tad pessimistic we are seriously in trouble  :o;
