Liverpool pay £12m for Sturridge, who Chelsea will then replace with Ba who already has 13 goals for a poor side, for only £7m.

LOL.

Classic Liverpool fail. You would have thought Liverpool would understand what constitutes a mugging by now.

Hmmm classic thicko, why don't you look a bit deeper into it. Ba will be on 100k at the very least, will be going to the African nations, and is 27 whilst sturridge will be on around 60k and is 23. Classic fail indeed.

Ahh you mean classic Liverpool fan in denial :)

Ba is simply the superior player.

Nobody would have Sturridge over Ba if they had sense. Ba's hitrate over his career for inferior clubs is superb. Precisely a goal every other game in fact! Take a look at his hugely impressive goalscoring record.

His career hitrate so far is right up there with the very best strikers ever seen in the Premier League (Shearer, Henry, Cole etc) He'll only be better with Chelsea's attacking talent.

Anyone outside of Liverpool can look and see that Chelsea will have come out miles on top in the deal. Who cares if Sturridge is 4 years younger? Gervinho is 4 years younger than Van Persie, but I know who I would rather have in my side.

The 5m Chelsea gained go towards his contract anyway, Chelsea get a better player for not a lot of money.

Sturridge is almost certainly on at least £70k a week at Liverpool, (apparently his agents demanded 80k....) because Liverpool overpay players as well. Jordan Henderson and Downing are on 70k a week! LOL.

70k a week, and lets just say 100k a week as you claim for Ba. Thats 1.56 million pounds a year difference. Meaning the 5m Chelsea gain pays for virtually all the difference over the life of a Sturridge's 3 and half year contract....

Liverpool mugged off once again.

I want to know how do Liverpool supporters see this signing. IMO opinion it could be at least a decent one, at least better than the Carrol signing and other decisions that were made by both Dalglish and Rodgers.

Honest begins with an H, the acronym is IMHO. Just so you know

It'll be interesting to see how he does with Liverpool.

Good signing if you ask me. Maybe a little too high of a price but he was one of chelseas best players under di matteo, just never got the chance. Liverpool create so many chances, I would expect him to do well there.
