Decent player, especially for £8.5m (how on earth have you scammed £14m for Borini?). Has twangy hamstrings, so best to hope he and Sturridge don’t synchronise on that front. On the down side, he signed for QPR rather than a proper prem team (Newcastle?) as they offered more cash, so don’t expect him to hang around if a big club come calling.
Allegedly a bit rapey, but at least that’d make for small talk if Brendan’s son ever pops round.Posted 3 years agoBlackhoundSubscriber
Remy could be a good buy scored a few goals at QPR and Newcastle in struggling teams so at Liverpool may do well. Doesn’t look like the type to work as hard as Suarez though.
If Rodgers gets £14m for Borini then I reckon he is already nailed on as manager of the year!Posted 3 years agodazhSubscriber
We’d have been in a relegation battle last year without Remy’s goals so I wouldn’t worry too much about his goalscoring ability. I would however worry about everything else that comes with him. He is the very epitomy of an a***hole blinged up footballer who thinks the world revolves around him.Posted 3 years agoloumMember

He spent was it 25m on lallana so let’s hold off on the manager of the year award
Not much between the two. Remy scores similar or more goals and similar numbers of assists, and he’s more versatile as can play CF, striker and wide forward. A little older, but that experience comes with 25+ France caps and a similar number of Champions League appearances as opposed to a load of English lower league appearances. In my view, there’s no way Lallana’s worth three times as much on pure football terms. Either one’s massively overpriced or that’s a serious “a***hole blinged up footballer” discount.Posted 3 years ago
Well the bookies clearly aren’t impressed. Present odds of Liverpool winning the premiership next season are 66-1

Remy had a clause in his contract to allow a top 4 team to buy him for 8.5 mill, Lallana didn’t. His release clause rose to 11.5 for positions 5&6, and 15 million for the rest.Posted 3 years ago
Ulloa is great and I’ll be sad to see him go. Hope he does well in the premier league.
I have liked the look of him for a while. Not sure the money is right though, seems a lot for an unproven striker at that level.
Then again Borini at £14m makes it look like a total steal.Posted 3 years agomashiehoodMember
this time last year no one gave LFC a hope of doing anything other than pray for a miracle to get 4th place!
Tottenham were being touted for a tilt at the league and we dont need to say anything about Man U!
My prediction is:
Chelsea, City, Arsenal and Liverpool in that order.Posted 3 years ago
I have a feeling Liverpool might struggle to match the heights of last season. The loss of Suarez is going to be massive. Gerrard looked a little out of sorts towards the end of the season (and the World Cup). Plus they’ll be playing 2 big games a week for much of the season. A lot is resting on their new players hitting the ground running.

As we are onto predictions – I’ll go Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal with Liverpool and ManU fighting it out for 4th. Manu U have the advantage of no CL football and I think that will be to their advantage. Had Liverpool not sold Suarez they would have been definite favourites for top 4 over Manu UPosted 3 years ago
Going off last seasons form, City are going to be the ones to beat. Now the scousers have to play midweek CL games too, normal service will be resumed. Worrying whether Everton will finish above them or not.
United back in the top four as they’ll be taking full advantage of not being in Europe, as Liverpool did last season
CityPosted 3 years ago
Disappointingly I too think they will struggle with the loss of Suarez and both PL and CL football.
I know they intended to buy more squad players and that there was a budget for this. So why not go and spend the money from Suarez on someone exciting like James Rodriguez?
I would have personally liked to have seen a ‘big name’ star signed. In fact, Sanchez coming the other way from Barca would have been good.Posted 3 years agoJunkyardMember
I use Betfred & Paddy Power, and they are both 10-1

Not a bad signing for the money and a decent player for the cash – better than what you are off loading for more [ if he will go that is]
League will be
