      I think a big difference in the two is that we feel comfortable competing for the likes of Alisson now, whereas at the time we were regularly a market or two below the likes of Torres.

      Yep, good point - though still was surprised we managed to get Alisson - we still don't have quite the spending power of a Barca, RM or Citeh, and he'd not be a bit out of place there.

      But Torres at the time was a real surprise, decent price too. Was really impressed with Rafa's Spanish connections.

      Technically the re-signing of Ian Rush.

      I would say Fernando Torres was already a big name in 2007.

      Out of interest.......

      How is a young Torres “already a big name” but a resigned Rushie not?

      That doesn’t make a lot of sense to me - maybe I’m misunderstanding?

      Rushie left us a world class striker. When he signed from Chester he wasnt We made Rushie, ok we sold and bought back but wed already made him. Were looking for instances of signing world class players
