Yeah loads of rumours around but none on reliable sources so most probably made up. Still think an athletic, dominant centre mid should be priority. CF would be very useful and a CB wouldnít be a bad idea as well now.

Cant see it - we dont play wingers. 

I wouldnt be surprised if we end up with conor gallagher, but not sure if he is actually any better than what we have. 

Pulisic wants out - I could get onboard with that
He is better than sjm for starters

I agree he is better, but heís better at playing a position that does not seem to suit Gerrardís tactics.

Iíve a horrible feeling we are done for this window.  Would be underwhelming if true.

Incredibly underwhelming, another season written off.

Agree re: Ďdominant centre midí. Onana looked good in his cameo at the weekend. I canít suggest any names, but someone from that mould would do nicely. Unfortunately we are falling over fairly similar players (to each other) in our squad. I canít see us bringing in another top level midfielder without reducing numbers. Ideally we would have shipped-out Sanson and Nakamba by now. I like Sanson, but canít see him getting any game time, and Iíd prefer to develop Iroegbunam than persevere with Nakamba.

Yes, we always seem to be one player away from solving the problems that we all know exist. Itís difficult though if you canít get players off your books - I have sympathy with the clubís hierarchy on that. The messaging since immediately after Carlos and Kamara were signed was that players needed to leave before more signings were made. That simply hasnít happened to a sufficient extent.

Neither Sarr nor Deeney played. Joao Pedro might have been watched, young Brazilian striker at Watford. Lot of potential reportedly but not seen enough to have an opinion either way on him.

If we are done, then I can see there being some issues down the line with Gerrard and the board over backing. To essentially go into the season with 1 first team signing on a free transfer is worrying. As I said a few pages back, there either has to be a FFP issue on wages, or we are see the move from the owners to a "more sustainable" model and making up the numbers has become the height of our ambition for the time being, because this squad is 9th-17th, best/ worst case scenario.

We didn't go into the season with one free signing. We paid £26m for a highly rated defender who very unluckily got badly injured in his second game. We paid £17m for Countino,  as well as bringing in a left back on loan and made Olsen's move permanent. Lets just see what happens if one or two players move on.
