Shippey had some thoughts on Steven Gerrard. rlkwon laid out some reasons why Liverpool may not be a top draw for players at the moment.
i really think that, as fans, we overplay the extent to which LFC is a draw for that top shelf, established world star. When we signed him, Luis Suarez was close to going to Spuds, not Real Madrid. Daniel Sturridge was an underestimated talent with a bad reputation. Philippe Coutinho was unrealized potential. the closest thing we’ve come to signing a clear top-of-his-game talent recently is arguably Lallana, and he’s clearly not in the same transfer bracket as going after a cavani, or costa, or alexis.
we’ve seen time and again since FSG has been here that those top players straight up want to go to teams that have been in the CL year in, year out, and are challenging for their domestic titles, year in year out. this is why United were still able to attract falcao and di maria, et al – they have a recent, sustained track record of being a club on people’s lips and minds. We’re not that. We are building towards that in the right way, but we’re not that.
all that to say that i think we need to go after a cavani anyway, just to test the waters, but this idea that the transfer committee a.) is in anyway different from how any club operates in signing transfer targets or b.) is unwilling to sign a marquee, fan sating name doesn’t wash for me. we just operate in a weird almost-there niche transfer bracket, until we prove that last year wasn’t a fluke.
