No to Suarez for me.  It's just too short term and expensive.  I'm happy with our attacking options for now.

I still think Bissouma (I know, I know) is the missing piece of the jigsaw.

Villa should move for Gallagher no reason not to bid for him he's not good enough for Chelsea midfield and wont establish it there with what they want.
Still feel we should have signed Abraham instead of Ings.
Ings goals and quality is sense but Tammy better age and fit for Villa system with Dean.

If you think Ollie Watkins (as much as I like him) or Danny Ings (as much as my national insurance is about to go up to pay for his social care) are better options than Suarez, then you need to put more water in it!

Big yes to Suarez, one the all time greatest strikers and still more than good enough for a season or two. Imagine how much Archer and the youth players could learn from him too.

When I was a student in the 90s in Liverpool I used to watch Tranmere, and they had a few old stagers (Pat Nevin, John Aldridge) that were head and shoulders above that level. I don't want us to end up a retirement home for exceptional ex Liverpool stars, but I can see how a couple of players like that in combination with our very good set of U23s could take us forwards.

 Suarez was superb at Liverpool.  He was dangerous from the 1st minute until the final whistle.  He never gave the back line a moment of piece. If Gerrard was interested in him I'd be enthused.

For those that want Ings to run around more, Suarez will move around significantly less.

He'd add a bit of bite to our attack for sure.

Really?  I don’t watch La Liga but always thought that was his key asset whilst at Liverpool.

Maybe the final third is the ‘root’ of our problem (‘bracing’ myself for the incoming abuse).

There is clearly a push behind the scenes to get into Europe this season. If it means a few shorter term top quality options then let’s go for it.

Agree, Gerrard will take short term options to get us in to position to attract top players, as long as they are short term contracts I can't see a problem.
