    TAW mentioned it's looking very likely this lad is coming to us, first I've heard of this..................true?

    He's a player I'd have liked to have signed years ago, he'd be a good addition now in any case

    It's been doing the rounds for a bit now Shay. I'd welcome him as well.

    he would be a good addition. You know what your going to get with him and thats 100% from him every game. All these big money signings city have bought over the past few years but hes always there in fighting for his place. Reminds me of Kuyt.

    Perfect player for a club who can't splash out and have 2 top class players in each position. His versatility will be a massive boost for the squad and he can't take a set play too.

    Most underrated player in the league. Delighted if we sign him

    wonder where he would play in current Liverpool system.

    He is a better footballer than both Lucas and Allen, however not sure that is his best position.

    If got him on a free for anything less than 100k week, I think it would be an excellent signing.

    We need a decent midfielder in the central role with henderson, anybody under any illusion to how average joe Allen is look at the last 3 games, squad player at best. Absolutely cringey looking at him and lucas been given the run around on Saturday.
    Wether we get Milner or rodgers knows of a decent foreign player which is not very likely is it, it's a crucial position we must fill. Truth be known we probably need 2 more CM players.
    I'd be looking to off load Lalanna, said it when we signed him he's a good player, we paid £10m to much but he's a luxury and an injury prone one,get £12m back for him this summer before he hits 28 and we'll lose massively on him

    Good player and versatile, wouldn't be top priority but given that he is out of contract I could see the value in getting him. Not a top class central midfielder in my book though and is more effective in wider areas.

    No way is he signing for anyone without some sort of assurance that he will a midfielder first and foremost. I like him as a player and a leader but in terms of ability in the centre of the park I'm not sure he has it. Definitely an improvement on what we have.

    Free transfer to replace Gerrard?

    I think he is alright, not great. Ok squad player but I agree I reckon wherever he goes hell get assurances of game time. I thought he could have ended up somewhere like West Ham

    I don't think that 3 at the back is going to be the formation we play going forward so if we sign Milner I think that will be it for CM's with Can playing further up more often.

    We still need a top class centre half then though. Won't hold my breath.

    We didn't need a CB last season and we don't need one this season, Sakho snd Skertl going forward, just get shot of Lovern for 5/6 million

    I dont think we need another CB, for the money we paid for Lovren i feel we need to give at least another season to prove he's worth i know he's been poor but he might come good yet.

    What's the alternative if one of them is injured or not in good form though?

    Surely our goalkeeping situation shows that we need real competition for places.

    I wouldn't be big budgeting for a CB christ could you imagine what we'd end up with. Isn't Llori back in summer, him Can, wisdom. That's enough for me, we'd end up with Alex bruce or the likes if rodgers got let loose with money to buy a CB

    He is alot better than West Ham standard, if he joins us he will be in our starting 11.

    City need to sort their home grown quota of players out - suprising if they let him go despite all the rumours.

    Everytime I've seen him this season he has played well and upstaged a lot of their so called stars. If he is on a free it's a no brainer.

    Still need to buy big in CM though this summer, if Milner comes or not

    Think this would be a great signing. A lad who is willing to give up CL football to come to a club where he has a better chance of playing in his position and improving his game is the kind of lad you want IMO.

    Hopefully we don't mess this up.

    Very good player. No harm signing someone who knows what it takes to win things either. He's an upgrade on the majority of our players. Hope we get this done. Would still want us to sign another midfielder.
