If the transfer window buying was to stop now, I'd be more than happy.

It isn't going to, so hopefully I'll be delirious.

In previous windows for too long now, as fans, we have dreamed and been expectant but all too often left feeling disappointed and unfulfilled.

This is not now the case. All parts of the club, coaching, management and players as well as very supportive owners, all seem to be pulling in the same direction.

No longer are we left hanging, or joining the race for certain players who have already been grabbed by other clubs.

Now we move and sign players that are wanted, and whom I presume are, excited about joining a club who are moving, at pace, in the right direction up the league.

Further signings will follow, players no longer wanted will move on, the young players will be brought in at the right time and develop with the help of the seasoned pros we are signing.

Other so called "top clubs" are aware that we are now joining the fray and will become a force to be reckoned with.

Transfer windows are no longer something to dread, especially as we get to deadline day and wonder if our over inflated price pursuit of a second rate French midfielder from a Championship side will get over the line.

The sleeping giant awakes and I can't wait.

You're right Grumpy, but it is still a 21st Century stadium fit for purpose and a draw for investment . Goodison Park isn't.
We need a new stadium, I appreciate deals have to be right and I think Moshiri is from a financing and business background that makes that the right deal.
If Liverpool Council pays any part as long as it doesn't effect the football side of the club then bring it on.
Gone are the days of clubs solely owning their home.
Our goal should be to have the best British stadium, eclipsing The Emirates, The Etihad, the new Spurs ground and even Wembley.

{Ed002's Note - I think you perhaps misunderstand what is happening with the stadium and the proposal.}

Think we have to separate the on-field and infrastructure agendas and deal with both in their own merits.
Right manager, right players, right coaching and player development is vital as we need to be challenging in top flight football and have a presence in European competitions.
Financing and building a stadium (and all that goes with it) is equally as important and the two, whilst complimentary, should be treated on their own merits.
Man City wouldn't be where they are now if they were still playing at Maine Rd.
Arsenal's off field planning has put them as one of the strongest bases for future progression in World football. (take out of that Wenger is past his sell by date)
Any decisions bases on the stadium has to look 5 to 10 years in the future.
On field crisis has to be dealt with now and that is a different mind set than running the business side of the club.

Kalinic is an OK player, failed at Blackburn. Will be 30 in January, goal record isn't prolific.
Nicolai Jorgensen of Feyenoord is 26, 6ft 3ins (sorry I'm old, don't do metric)
Has a 1 in 2 record at club level and 1 in 3 at International level.
Would have thought a better financial investment as well as being younger in an already ageing front line (Sandro apart)
Money seems to go further with Dutch clubs, so £25M more likely to get him than the same offer to Fiorentina (rumoured he wants Milan anyway)

Club shop should know! They must have boxes upon boxes of vowels and consonants waiting in the back in case Gylfi signs.

Agree with the posts about not bothered what we spend.
The yardstick come season start is "Do we have a better squad than this time last year"
Who pays and how much is only relevant if we are "mortgaging" the club via bank loans and dubious investment like has happened in the past. Moshiri does not appear to be doing this.
Pickford and Klaasen are good investments. Losing Lukaku's goals is a worry (not losing the personality) . Barkley is resigned to going, so we move on. Sigurdsson is proven at this level, we still need defensive additions and different strike options.
The kids will help but the squad size, because of Europe, needs to be a lot bigger, and with more quality, than last year.
I believe Koeman and Walsh are going about it the correct way and have the backing of the board and the owner.

Agree Ed.
Sam wouldn't have been high up on my wishlist too but we weren't in a good position at the time.
To me, this is where Walsh earns his salary. Every club that changes managers frequently ends up with a hotch-potch of a squad.
This is where signing players with the right attitude counts.
I think Walcott comes into that category, Schneiderlin doesn't.
We don't need badge kissers but we need pros who work hard, listen to instruction and give their all.
Niasse is like that, will never be even a good player but you can't criticise him for effort.

Agree with Blue Tommy and Swan.
Even before yesterday's disastrous performance you have to look at the squad and say what needs to be in place by the time Big Sam's contract ends.
As much as bringing the right people in, it's as much as moving the wrong people out.
Agree with their groups, I would presume most supporters would.
The only difference is I think Baines is as good as finished and Rooney is heading that way like an express train.
Everyone can't go at once so over the next 4 transfer windows (length of Sam's contract) , we need to prioritise the most awful to go first and gradually work thru the list.
At the same time we have to integrate the good young players, buy focused and, with better quality than we replace, talented players and hopefully make steps, not leaps to improve.
This window we should get another 3 in, of the right type and in the areas we already have mentioned, and every window look at about another 4 quality with the additional young prospects, like the lad from Charlton.

{Ed025's Note - it looks like a massive rebuilding job to me YG, its not an easy fix and we will have to suck it up for quite a while, sam was not my choice i admit but i honestly cant see any manager doing any better in the short term mate..

It is the boys to men situation. Growing up with other kids it's easy to be "king of the kids".

It happens with all starlets, not unique to Ross and I hope his next move is the making of him.

Rooney is a great example of how to keep progressing, keep pushing the boundaries and striving for improvement. In his short time back home it has been documented how well he leads and sets a good example, especially with the kids.

Some, and I'm not saying it's the case with Ross, think when they make the first team that's it I'm a superstar now (remember Cadamaterri) .

When you go from being the big noise in a select group to mixing with seasoned pros and internationals some fail to progress. Some go on to have good careers as pros.

The problem with Ross is he has the potential and ability to be a top drawer player. Is his head right, does he get bad advice, does he mix in the wrong circles I don't know.

His move, and he will move, will either make or break him, another Rooney or another Rodwell?

I hope he becomes a fantastic player and shows everyone he can do it even for another challenging club. Even with all his Man Utd years I have always admired and been proud of Rooney, Why?, because he's one of ours as is Ross.

Good luck son and let's hope you become one of the best players we have ever produced.

Great post idea Worcester
I would like to see Loftus-Cheek and Ake as part of a deal from Chelsea for Lukaku.
Think Loftus-Cheek is wasted in their reserves and is an age now when he needs to fulfill the potential. Watched him in the England U21s and was very impressed. Tall, powerful, can play holding as well as an eye for goal.
Ake came on leaps and bounds at Bournemouth and I feel is going to be a great defender. Good intelligent brain, reads the game and not afraid of a challenge.
I'd also try and get Bembele from Celtic by using McCarthy as bait.
Might cost a few bob but we should have got him when he was at Fulham. Eye for goal, good pace and a good goal scoring return even for up in Scotland.
