      If we keep it to the premier league era, and realistic, as in were never going to or never were going to sign Messi. Using the same criteria used by various owners on wages etc who would you liked to have seen us sign in the premier league?

      One Ill start with. Going right back to 1992. Matt Le Tissier..A genius player. Why he never gor a move to a big club Ill never know. But him instead of Clough playing with Rushie and God would have been a sight. His skill level and the goals he scored were top class. The question mark will forever be was he one of those players that suited his enviornment and had we signed him would he have been just another fish in the pond and not the big fish

      I remember really wanting Lee Bowyer when he was heavily being linked so our midfield of him and Stevie was gnarly as f**k.

      I remember the David villa transfer thread from years back, seemed to believe for about 3 years we were getting him! Would have been class.

      Remember seeing bim in 93 for Bordeaux against Bohemians. Him Dugarry and Lizarazu in the side. He was good but didnt see what came coming. Dugarry in fact looked tbe better prospect.

      Could defo have got him at that point

      I remember those rumours very well & creamed at the thought of him turning out for us. Was a joy to watch him play

      Baz, Ronaldo was actually a Liverpool supporter when he played in Madeira. Info comes from daughter-in-law  who is from Funchal, and her brother played in the same side.

      Ronaldo the standout really isn't he. If Rafa had him we would have won the league.

      David Silva was also one I was gutted we didn't end up signing.

      Had him done only we didnt want to pay his wage demands as an unproven 18 year old. By the time we agreed to it hed signed for united. They paid 3 times the fee we had agreed

      If Edwards was around in the 90s and 00s we would have about 28 league titles and 14 European cups

      Van der Sarr, Vidic and Silva in Rafa time with us, with three of them we can guarantee a no.19 and more.
      Remember during that time manu got Van der Sarr and Vidic we were silly trial and error with the like of Itandje, Carson, Paletta and Aquilani?

      Another player I'm really like is Lewandowski, imagine if it's him instead of Andy Carroll  :\

      Lillian Thuram was another I liked, world class RB and would have slotted in nicely, there are many big names that would have adorned our team, Berkamp for example wouldn’t have thrived as too would have Overmars, and although I hate to say it Didier Drogba, not too shabby having a spine of Reina, Sami, Alonso, Gerrard, Drogba ?

      I was a pretty big advocate for Bruno Fernandes when we were linked with him about 2 summers ago.  I said at the time that he could provide cover for Bobby Firmino in the CF role, could play as a #10, or play deeper as a creative CM in our usual midfield 3.  Suffice it to say, I wish we had made that one happen now....

      Hopefully this somewhat fits with the theme...not a player I wish we'd signed but one I wish we'd have kept....Torres. Can you imagine if him and Suarez would have got a couple of years together.

      As far as players I wanted us to sign, I can be honest and say I advocated for us signing Clint Dempsey and Cristian Tello. Probably pretty good that we didn't looking back, although you never know how their careers might have been different had they came here. I always felt like Dempsey was the asshole we needed at the time and Tello seemed to be a player that was going to breakout every year with Barca but he never really did. Dunno if he even plays anymore.

      Lazy tw*t, in his own words was happy at Southampton and not arsed about moving clubs.

      My choice Marcel Desailly before he moved to chelsea. Unfortunately wanted to live in London.

      I think souness turned down Schmeichel and he really was a beast.
      We ended up with David James but there really is no comparison.

      Another we were linked with back in the mid 90s was les Ferdinand. I always liked him.
