Liverpool are signing some proper tosh at the minute

Dossena is pants
Riera.....City reject
Ngog looked average against Villa
Degen
Plessis...PLEEEEASE!!!

Are Loserpool going back to the days of signing any old crap again or will they be inspired signings that give them the title.

skrtel and agger should be their centre backs in my opinion

crooney you honestly think essien will be on the left wing? lol
no - he will be on the left side of the midfield...and he's a type of player who can be a MOTM on EVERY position---- deco,essien,lampard and ballack will be played at the same time imo.... they will lose in width but they'll have a great midfield

Hey Yang,

n Liverpool, I think you;re right that Rafa bought Reira to play for that position. I am quite happy to, because if he's as unspectecular as he was at City than Liverpool are going to face a fight for fourth place.

Can't agree with Song playing in Arsenal's midfield though, because Denilson will be ahead of him.

But I was under the impression that Eduardo has played on the left at Arsenal, no?
I could be a total liar or imagining things :) but Wenger said he can play as a winger when he bught him and I've seen him floating around there.

But you;re right, I think he would not usually start there.

I can't agree with Essien on the left though. Scolari would rather play Ballack there and Essien in the centre.

How come no one has put Agger in instead of Skrtel? Before he got injured Agger was brilliant for the Scousers, he makes Carragher look a lot better aswell.

He has the potential to be world class IMO.

Fair point and Agger scored a nice goal from that well-worked free kick against Chelsea we well.

I guess he's sort of faded from most people's memory, but they did miss him last season. i'm liking the look of Skrtel and haven't seen him make mistakes like Carragher has, so maybe Agger should be starting with Skrtel?

Liverpool fans say Skrtel is better, i think he is too. Skrtel reminds me of Vidic.
Very strong no noncense defender. Perfect for the Premier League

I remember reading a Liverpool forums a while back and they said that they would play Carragher RB with Agger and Skrtel CB.

In a lot of ways they are similar to our CB's. Agger being the Rio of the 2 while Skrtel is like Vidic. Though not as good obviously.

Song was great in the African cup of nations in that position. he did not get the chance to play in the midfield position last season, as flamini and gilberto were there. i think he shld be given a chance to play alongside fabregas, and he is a lot tougher than denilson. like flamini, defensive minded, and with good defence ability(play in cb position, and did not play too bad also, even against us), and how the hell did eboue get into the team instead of him, i have no idea. i would be happy if eboue keeps playing in arsenal team.

song shld be given a chance in that position

Ballack has to play for chelsea, he is pure class. Sometimes he may be slightly sloppy/clumsy like scholes is but overall, a great great midfielder. Chelseas centre mid options are amazing!

Eduardo wont play left wing imo...especially after his injury, he is a finisher...if he ever gets back to his best...and better
