isn't Draxler a better talent than Ince? hmmmmmmm rich you are right.. it seems our backup options are better than our first options.. awesome!
To be fair, they will try to milk as much as possible.Cant expect them to lower expectations. What i feel is they are probably waiting for any other club to submit a improved bid[as compared to ours] and then tell us to match that. I think they must have expected stoke[because they are in the market for winger] or may be QPR/Tottenham to also bid,creating a ideal sellers market. Cheaky shit, what we should have done with aquilani, but hey those were the bad days!I hate Blackpool they always mess us around.We were nice enough to give him to them for 250,000 now they want 8 million after a year with them??Cheeky shits.
I think the Draxler link is crap. Its a re-hash of a rumor started by Duncan Jenkins, I think. Basically, I think the media need all of us Liverpool fans chasing a good rumor or two to sell their papers and keep us following them on Twitter.Hmm not sure if I believe much in that Draxler link, how reliable and who is Joseph Musker anyway? Seems to me that maybe he watched Schalke earlier today and thought "I'd like to see that boy at Liverpool".
What I find odd is Draxler being an alternative option "if we don't get Ince". Those would be two very different transfers. The price I think wouldn't be in the same range + what you could possibly do with Ince you couldn't maybe do with Draxler i.e. bring him here and give him a little squad role for a start. I guess Ince would grab the chance of returning even if he isn't guaranteed xy game time, the biggest question lies in his quality and I can't comment on that too much as I haven't seen enough. I don't believe we could "play" like that with Draxler. He'd probably be better staying at Schalke then. But who knows what the player wants...
When was this announced by the club.Is/was there an official announcement that we somehow missed.
To be fair to Blackpool, having just seen Zaha move to United for nearly double the price they're after for Ince, you can understand why they'd quote that amount. Whilst Zaha's potential may be greater, Ince has a goal every other game and an assist every 1 in 3. It's impressive anyway you look at it. Personally though, I hope we spend the money elsewhere. Don't think Ince will make it at a club any higher than mid table in the Premier League.I'm glad we are not going to be bullied again by Blackpool. Â£8m is way of the Mark for ince imo. I hope we use the cash or add a few million in the summer on top quality players to show Gerrard Suarez that we want to compete for the league or I can see Suarez leaving.
