    If Tadic is as good as some people seem to think then offloading Lallana for 25mil and getting him for 11mil was a great bit of business.

    Lallana counts as a home grown player for squad size rules, doesn't he? Kroos wouldn't since he wasn't trained in the UK. Not to mention he'd be extremely unlikely to want to come to Liverpool, whereas Real can turn his head just by saying they want him. It's almost like they're two completely different players in two completely different situations, but feel free to compare them if you like.

    Is that true? Like, if you were born to English parents and played in italy until you were 20, then came over to the premiership, would you count for quotas?

    Cos given the Liverpool squad, they really need more homegrown numbers.

    But yeah Kroos would never go to Liverpool and he only had one year left. I'd say it's more of a bargain on Real's part though than Liverpool being totally ripped off - they have over paid, but maybe not by much. Will see.

    Did Lallana impress people that much to warrent a 25 mill price tag thats the question.

    I dunno. The bench looked like his best position.

    20m sounded about right for Lallana, so I don't think Liverpool have massively overpaid. It's hardly Andy Carroll.

    I really liked watching him last season, made a change to see an English player who can actually play a bit of football. I'm not sure where the negativity is coming from about Liverpool signing him, really. I think he'll do well at Anfield.

    It's a fair question, but the answer is no. Although if they'd been at some kids academy from 6-9 then yes, they qualify as homegrown even if they'd lived abroad from that point.

    Such a shame about Carroll. On his day he's awesome but just doesn't seem to have the right attitude if reports about West Ham trying desperately to offload him are true. I wonder if getting the big transfer was the problem or if he would've turned out the same way anyway.

    We need to hurry up and sign someone over 35m so he's no longer our record signing :rolleyes:

    Carroll was a cock long before his big move. In fact he calmed down after his big move.

    Other way round - if you were born in Italy to Italian parents but trained at an English club's academy for three years, eg from 15 through to 17, you'd count as homegrown. It's about where you trained, not where you were decanted.

    The Times reporting Liverpool and Sunderland have agreed a 14m fee for Borini :eek:

    edit: maybe.

    Was alright when not injured. Never lost a match he played in. :)

    But watch us sign Cleverley. :( We already have that turd Kone. Was 5mil, but that was 20mil too much.

    Can't believe he felt the need to respond. Hook, line and sinker. :) So sad.
