    Jesus, they were asking us for 8m in January. Wonder if we'll match the bid now.

    He had better stats than Zaha in the Championship last season and Zaha cost more than twice what Cardiff have had accepted.

    Stats don't mean much though. Otherwise players like Darren Bent are better than most strikers in the world.

    I'm not saying he's a bad player, but 8.5m for him was quite frankly stupid money, and as the U21 championship has shown, some of those players at that level just aren't that good. Yet.

    As a nation we do like to big-up young, fairly average, players.

    15m is delightful for the pony that is zaha. Utd fans will see that soon enough. He switched off for palace once he got his move or saw how much cash he was gonna get. Been a great year for palace really

    30% of that Ince deal goes to Liverpool. Hearing Wanyama discussions have broken down with Southampton and his agent has been sounding us out as his prefered option...fingers crossed!

    I thought Wanyama was already playing for one of the "biggest clubs in the world"? Surely he can do better than Cardiff?

    He doesn't seem the type to do that. It might be something else.

    On the other hand I imagine few of us are jealous of their dealings thus far.

    Kolo "Past It" Toure? Luis Who? Iago "I scored a few goals for a team that almost got relegated" Aspas?

    They're interesting signings. Seems likely that at least some of those are quite shrewd.

    I do have a feeling though that the Suarez deal is basically done, and they're quietly spending the money before the prices go up accordingly.

    Rogers has bought pretty well so far (from last summer), so the precedent is... interesting, at least.

    I'm sure that's true, and if so, it's smart business practice.

    None of the transfers so far have got the pulse racing, and I'm always wary of these Barcelona "B" team players, especially those who aren't offered new deals by the club. IF the rumours are true and we have 20m plus the Suarez money, then I can only hope we have at least two more quality players due in.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I think that is Liverpool's transfer level right now. Young players from abroad for less than 10 mill who might turn out well, or will at least make most of their money back if they have to ship them back out.

    It isn't a bad thing either. Although it may be a regression in terms of their overall club profile, it's a much more solid foundation than what Kenny was doing.

    Agreed. Pretty smart signings, even if they are flying under the radar a bit.

    Dunno, you can never be sure until it all pans out with signings. We've lost loads of money on people like Chamakh and nobody wants to buy them.

    It only takes one of, say, 3 low-key signings, to come good for it to be generally worthwhile. If Asapas, other Spanish chap or... Kolo Toure... .... .... come good, then it's not bad business.

    What would be far worse is Mikhadriefrfjdf coming in and flopping.

    All signings are a gamble, but given Liverpool's income etc, it seems sensible to be buying these sorts of players over big-name expensive players. Rodgers is barmy in front of the camera, but is slowly putting together a decent team (as Kalel said many times last year).

    I'm surprised some of the more notorious fans haven't been in here pretending they know who these guys are and getting all excited yet.

    After giving him 15 mil for Joe Allen I imagine BRs policy has been somewhat dictated to him as well.

    Joe Allen aside, he's spent well. Assaidi [sic] wasn't expensive, iirc.

    They actually looked a better team without Suarez. Despite their protestations that he's going nowhere I suspect that Rodgers and the hierarchy have noticed that.
