Come on Liverpool, Time To Make Some Serious Transfer Bids

transfer news

With Liverpool heavily mentioned in several transfer moves in the transfer winow, it is time to ask the question. Why are we placing such small bids for Suarez and Charlie Adam? Rumours were related that we had the money to spend this window by Tom Werner himself, telling us that Liverpool had money to spend, this transfer window and beyond.

However only bidding £12.7 million for Ajax forward and £4 million for Blackpool’s Charlie Adam smells like stale & small cheese to me. Come on Fenway, show your signs of intent as new owners of Liverpool Football Club and give the cash to Commoli to capture Suarez, offer them £20 million for the Uragyuan stiker, if that isn’t enough then, fair enough, walk away from the deal.

Blackpool’s Charlie Adam wants to join us Reds, but a £4 million offer is s joke, you are looking at an £8 to £10 million price for the player who would love to play for Liverpool. Commolli get the finger out and put some real money up for these players.

Best of luck at your new club Ryan, well done on the Webb tweet!

    I hope the American owner make a real statement of intent by putting forward a realistic bid for a world class player.
    Instead of making a public statement about their hope for Suarez to make a transfer request, which in my opinion is a cheap move that I’m sure is not considered the Liverpool way.

    why are we even wasting the time of ajax with such a laughable offer? Suarez has 80 odd goals in 100 or so games, is their star striker, established international. Get real comolli. Are you rick parry in disguise?! We are running out of time and these clubs will run out of patience with us or we will get gazumped by other clubs. Suarez is a cool £18m easy. I dont think we have the money otherwise we would make serious bids. Its all a bit suspect to me.

    Bollocks… we have been screwed over with transfers for years having to pay over inflated prices for players, just because we are LFC… other clubs think they can get the £’s out of us. im glad they are offering low £££’s as that is what is required when bargaining… (if you want to buy a shirt that you think is worth $20, but the tag says $25, your not going to start your bargaining at $19 are you…) I would be happy to pay full price on a proven player like gerrard, torres, tevez… they are real marquee players, suarez isnt… so stick your £20 million offer you know where… keep up the awesome work King Kenny, Commoli and FSG… YNWA

    Suarez 20mil.. maybe.. but Ajax and the whole world knows our situation.. if u go back now with 20mil, they would ask for 30mil.. this is never ending..

    Charlie Adams 10mil pound? I think its abit over.. personally i think 6 -7 mil no more.. To think that Holloway suggested 14mil and upward.. haha.. dreaming.. Adams is good.. not that good..

    I agree with both Ajax & Blackpool – the amounts being offered for their top players is indeed insulting. C’mon Liverpool, lets get serious – this is embarrasing now! Time is rapidly running out and just now we end up with no-one.

    The worst thing we can do is to splash the cash, that’s why we’ve been shafted for exorbitent fees over the years. We are haggling, that’s all

    We have to show that we will not be held to ransom for a player like Suarez, who is ultimately a real gamble. We don’t know how he will adapt to England or Liverpool. It was reported initially that he preferred a move to London

    As for Charlie Adam, he IS worth £10 million +

    His vision, distribution, drive etc have been inspirational this year

    We run the risk of Man Utd coming in and nabbing him. I just hope he has a stinker tonight or we’ll miss out

    I thought Liverpool now had the right owners??
    Do we need to start all over again? This is absolute nonsense!! This is football. Dont try to look & act smart trying to change the transfer market. It doesnt work. We understand yu know little about football but dont take your folly to the other teams. Much as the selling teams demand respect we as a football team also need respect..Is this what you meant when you said had yu been around some of the done deals would never happen? If so then ship out otherwise yu are there only to ruin the club. Even Babbel you are selling for 6M actually cost over 11M. Wake up!! This is disgraceful

    Just because we have money to spend does not mean that we should go out and overpay for players!!

    Charlie Adam was sold by Rangers to Blackpool for £500k in 2009 which says he was not good enough for Rangers and happy to go to a Championship side who at the time were threatened with relegation to the 1st Division. So please tell me how he can be worth over £10m (according to Holloway) after 21 games in the premiership?? I would call that Holloway trying to cash in on his good start but you seem to believe that Liverpool should just except this over inflated price as if we dont it means that the new owners are not willing to spend!! If I told you that I had a 30yr old Robin Reliant which has been running better than expected for the last 6mths would you pay me £50k for it if you had the money?? No. You would look at its history and the likliehood of it continuing to run at the expected level. The same goes for Suarez. Yes he has a great scoring record in Holland but then so did Kuyt and Huntellaar and neither of them managed to reproduce their records in the Premiership and La Liga did they??

    Comolli and co know what they are doing. They have told us that there is money their for the “right players” but dont expect them to just hand it over without thinking about it. There is a difference in valuations of around £20m totalled between the two players.. that is enough for another top player!!! Would you prefer them to just go out and meet the ridiculous asking prices or negotiate the best deal for the club and leave enough money for another top class player (maybe a decent left winger)?

    Agree, let’s haggle. we shelled out £4m for Konchesky and Poulsen, do you want more of that?
    Adam is out of contract in the summer, so a £8-10m value in the real market becomes £3-5m to take him 6 months earlier.

    Look back to Van De Vart’s price when he came to Spurs. Is Charlie Adam better than him? 14m for unwellknown midfielder, toooooo high.

  16. Dave

    January 25, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Good Point Yoslum. Was it £8 Spurs paid for him?

    Similar situation with Pienaar’s move from Everton to Spurs. He had 6mths left on his contract and went to Spurs for £3m. In 6mths Adams could probably buy himself out of his Blackpool contract for £20 and a pack of KP Peanuts… Pienaar was bought by Everton for £2m and sold for £3m so why does Holloway think everyones valuation of his player is so low?? Dont recall him parting with several million to buy him…so how can he complain about an offer representing a 700% profit????

  17. Simon

    January 25, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Adam has 18 months left. Pienaar had 6 months left

    Real flogged off Van der Vaart as Jose didn’t want him and they therefore needed to get him off the payroll, his wages cost €4.5m per year

    @fatso We don’t play Babel, and he costs us a fortune in wages. Selling him for £6 million is an excellent move for us, given that all he has is reputation

    Kenny will turn Adam into a Liverpool superstar. We definitely should ensure that we get his signature, £8 million will hopefully do it

    Adam loses out on a 20% chunk of transfer fee if he requests a transfer. Blackpool have forced him to request a move to avoid this payment

    It’s not all black and white

    OK whatever happens the most important thing for us is to get to the top four and then the league thereafter. King definitely has aces up his sleeve so lets just trust him (as we did for hodson) Striker a main priority so lets see what they chalk up

    You people that are already criticizing the new owners are absolute morons. Go back to playing Football Manager.

    at the end of the day we aint going to be making any signings and watch torres going and getting injured or suspended then we will be screwed if we do not sign suarez and some new playes liverpool are not even going to be challenging for uefa cup this season

    What we need to do is to trust the judgements of the LFC’s management team. Stop this bloody complaints and wait for their decisions. We are at 10th position and we can’t make it to the top 4 even if have excellent players.
