I'm surprised how people are disregarding Liverpool in the title race, it's one thing to win when you're playing good football but the fact that they won playingbad shows that they can contend

give it a few games, Liverpool will be back to their best, with Mascherano and Lucas back and Gerrard, Torres and Keane playing at their best, Liverpool will be a force in the title race
Yeah but nationality comes into play when your talking about transfer fees, especially with the possibility of a 6+5 rule coming into play. Look at Carrick and Hargreaves, both cost 18M and Barrys a much better player than either of them.

TBF I can't see Liverpool even contending the title anytime soon. Mascherano can't tackle and will always be muscled out of games by a world class midfielder, especially in England. Robbie Keane is a bad signing IMO, yeah he can look good but he's too greedy and goes missing too often. Look at how many clubs he's been at.
Torres is world class and Gerrard can be on his day. Lucas, the jury's still out but he does look like he's got bags of potential.

Thats two top players at the club and you know thats not enough to challenge Man U or Chelsea.
