How many of them were by Comoli?

Pity he didn't bring that scouting talent to Liverpool but I guess he didn't have a Daniel Levy at Pool to stop him from going nuts with all that money

there's bargains out there if you just get the right player at the right time.

kompany 6 mil, zaba 6.45 mil, hart 600k, clichy 7 mil + academy kids who could turn out to be bargains. it also depends on what you classify as a bargain. for 12 mil, we've got a lot out of barry since he's arrived, but to others that seems expensive.

Commoli got a lot of stick from Spurs fans and I imagine from Liverpool fans too but he did make some good crucial signings for us. Obviously Ekotto and Bale stand out from todays pile (although you could argue that everyone knew about Bale at the time), but he did sign us Berbatov and Modric and for that I'm grateful.

Alonso 10m, Agger 6m, Skrtel 6-7m, Lucas 6m, Reina 6m. Some of Rafa's best work right there

All about the gambles really. I mean Vidic for 7m and like Snrub said, Kompany for 6m?

re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Van Persieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

it's just about taking the punt on a lesser name. and sometimes changing positions. prince vince was a midfield when he joined us, and got transformed into a defender out of necessity. then became a champion.

i mean, probably the best signing of the last few years is michu for 2.5 mil. there's a fair few players at clubs like rayo, espanyol and similar clubs who arent in a position to demand high amounts for their players. michu in particular, is tall but still has great dribbling abilities, and laudrup has been smart enough to make him into basically a striker, instead of a goal scoring midfielder. small changes like that can mean the difference between good and great, and the better managers are able to make those types of players better.

Suarez was 20+ mil but i shudder to think what we'd be like without him.

as far as bargains/value for money then Enrique was around 6 mil, Skrtel 6.5 mil, Lucas 6mil, and Bellamy in his latest stint was free. Agger, Alonso etc weren;t expensive. Then we have Suso, Kelly, Robinson, Wisdom, Flanagan, Morgan are coming up through the acadamy (or bought cheap when young in the case of Wisdom and Suso), Sterling was bought for cheap + add ons so there is some value around but the trouble with buying young players is the time that it takes to develop them.

Well really the only reason Kompany went for cheap and no one else really went for him was because of his injuries. He has joined Man City for the relatively cheap price and stayed injury free for the most part. He always had the potential, I mean I remember buying him when he was 16 back in the old Champ Man days.
