The Summer so far - Liverpool
Liverpool had a very tricky season last year with a lot of instability at the club. But with a good end to the Premier League Season and some time for their January signings to gel even more (Suarez and Carol), plus the edition of a couple of big name signings already in this summer transfer window, Liverpool could be on the up. The two main additions are young Jordan Henderson from Sunderland for approximately £16 million and Charlie Adam from Blackpool for £8 million. I believe these are both good players that will give the Anfield outfit a much stronger and deeper squad next year. Charlie Adam is a good player with a lot of talent and is on the back of a great season with Blackpool last term. Jordan Henderson is an exciting young English prospect with a heap of potential that Kenny Dalgliesh will be expected to fill.
Stewart Downing is the one in recent weeks heavily linked to a move to Liverpool, but with a £20 million plus price tag on his head, its undecided whether Liverpool will meet that and whether Aston Villa will sell the player.
Now, yes he is a good premiership player and has worked hard the last couple of seasons to improve his game. But £20 million??? The cost of English players its absolutely insane now a days. He is definitely not worth £20 million, even in today's crazy transfer society. Liverpool fan's what are your views? And football fan's in general what do you think of Stewart Downing?
Liverpool fan's how are you feeling about this up and coming season? Potential to get back into the top 4?
I believe by the way the summer is shaping up that Liverpool will be challenging for 4th place alongside Tottenham and Arsenal, in what I would now start to call the second tier of the Premier League behind Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City.
