It now looks like Liverpool will move their attentions towards Cresswell of West Ham.

Heard similar, but I really don't rate Cresswell. He's really slow, defensively he's weak and he's also 28. So no real potential to improve. Would much rather us just pay big money on Mendy or Tierney.

I don't mind that. better than Robertson defensively and can take set pieces too.

Better option than Robertson in my opinion. He's a Liverpool lad and has stood out for me as one of the better players in a poor West Ham team.

Decent on the ball and not prone to may mistakes, quite solid defensively. Not going to set the world alight with his performances, but an upgrade on what we have for sure.

If he could just convince Pedro Obiang to come along with him that would be LB and CM sorted for me.

Personal don't rate him as an improvement from what i've seen of him at west ham, Mendy would be ideal to sort a problem position. Outside of this I would go for bertrand.

Juts go and buy one class player. This position has been crap from ages!

For what its worth I don't think he's great but since Mendy was taking the piss with his wage demands it is the more sensible option. He would add a balance to the team being left footed and his set pieces are better than what we have.

As much as i like young players with potential we have to get a squad ready for CL next season (or EL but let's hope we win the game) .

I haven't really seen anything from Cresswell as i normally just watch the liverpool game on the weekends so i can't say how good he is but 27 is a good age. Id rather have a solid LB with a little bit of experience then a youngster who makes mistakes.

Also i think if moreno works on his defensive behaviour he could be a really solid LB.

Did everyone think Mendy was this top class player this time last year. Or had they never heard of him like me. There seems to be a lot of fuss being made about him and I bet most people have probably just seen him play a handful of CL games.

A bit cynical. Monaco were on BT a hell of a lot last season, so there were plenty of opportunities for people to see him play. He also featured in a lot of team of the seasons. And if you put any faith in the opinion of pundits and some journos, who were banging on about him all the time, you'll know he's top quality.

Ryan Bertrand actually seemed like a no-brainier before the VVD fiasco. Would have been ideal, in my opinion.

Didn't realise LFC fans were die hard Monaco fans as well. I know I've never thought ' I'll stay in tonight and watch French club football'

Mendy is way too expensive in my opinion. Yes he is a really good player but he would cost a furtune and his wage demands are crazy for a LB.

As much as i like to see the best players in the world playing for us we still have to think about the financials. We can't afford to pay a LB 180k a week when our best players probally earn less. I don't think a LB has evern been the highest paid player in any team ever.

We should take a look at Gaya from Valencia. 22 years old, Played almost every game last year and has huge potential. He won't be cheap as well but cheaper then Mendy for sure.

Who knows what represents a good deal at the moment. Fees are outrageous and Mendy seems like a good option, even with Monaco's valuation. If Liverpool thinks it can afford him, who are we to argue?

And this whole ridiculing fans for paying attention of what happens in leagues outside the Prem just seems ignorant to me.

If Moreno works on his defensive abilities? So his marking, tackling, positioning, if they were all to improve then sure he might be a decent left back, but these are all things that should come naturally and then be improved upon, you should not have to teach a left back in his mid 20's the basics.

Pedro Obiang. give me a break, may aswell bring in mark noble aswell then.

{Ed001's Note - if you had watched the Hammers play, you would know there is a huge difference between the two. Obiang had to carry Noble most of the season.}

Moreno has all the ability, but lacks the decision making ability, he ends up diving in making stupid tackles, where really all he had to do was stand off the player and make the player pass backwards giving his teamates time to cover back.
