Liverpool In For Adam Again...

...and this time it appears they've got him.

BBC Sport - Liverpool agree deal to buy Blackpool's Charlie Adam
Liverpool have reached agreement with Blackpool for the transfer of Scottish midfielder Charlie Adam.

Adam, 25, travelled to Merseyside on Wednesday for a medical and to discuss personal terms.

Another central midfielder to add to the Anfield pile, but will he be able to start in the same team as Gerrard? I have my doubts about that as they both thrive in a similar position and like to be at the fulcrum of everything their team does.

It'll certainly be interesting to see how it plays out, but one things for sure; expect it to be detrimental to both players from a fantasy perspective, with them sharing corners, free kicks & possibly even penalty duty.

Cheers,
AM

Charlie Adam would lose some luster regardless of where he played next season, but I understand your point. What made him such a great pick was his dirt cheap cost for the first two months of the season, and YFF managers will be combing through Norwich, QPR, and Swansea players to find his like next season. It took me a year of playing YFF to see the value in mining players from promoted teams, and sometimes it's tough to tell whether a star from the Championship will follow in the footsteps of Andy Carroll or, say, Sylva(i)n Ebanks-Blake, Chris Brunt or Graham Dorrans. It took a lot of work and research, but I have finally come to appreciate the relationship between YFF and real-life football.

By the way, I was never able to post my second part of suggestions for your "Wish List" post. I would leave the comment, but it would disappear if I left the site and came back. Oh, well.

liverpool are stronger indeed with this acquisition, I could see Liverpool getting off to a flying start and maybe even being first place for a few months...it's not out of the question at all.

my concern is year after year we say we urgently need wingers - there are now a plethora of midfielders at anfield but STILL no quality wingmen - wonder if KK will play jordan henderson on the wing ?

ROLL ON AUGUST 20TH
