      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.
      As far as the modern game goes Schmeichel really was one of the best if not the best imho  and yeah we ended up with David PlayStation James .

      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.

      Cheers to you for being honest.  I won't even attempt to recall all the players I wanted us to sign that turned out to be complete sh*t, but suffice it to say there have been plenty!!  Bruno is the best example of the rare times I was right about a player -- unfortunately :(

      There's definitely a few players that I wish we had never sold.  Luis Alberto and Danny Ings currently fit into this category...

      Looking at some of your admissions about players you liked who we might have signed, it strikes me that a lot of players we've signed or been linked with under previous managers were good / brilliant for a season and then ... not.  Looking back, I wanted us to sign that little bald striker fella who used to play for Fulham years ago, was it something Johnson?  Hmmm...?!

      Class, as they say, is permanent!

      Hence (ideal world, red - tinted specs etc), I'd have loved Le Tissier, Shearer, Schmiechel, Drogba, Cantona - even though I detested them in our rivals' teams.

      If there's one player I really think would have fitted us perfectly and been a long-term legend it has to be Thierry Henri. 

      Nice thread!  Good to go all gooey inside about the reds right now, instead of bristling - at the results and some of the idiots who pretend to be fans!

      Back in the 50's Dave Mackay.

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

      Funny I was really keen on Bowyer as well for some reason.

      One that we did sign but maybe a couple years too late was Jari Ljtmanen. Absolute gem of a footballer and would have loved to have seen him here in his mid to late 20's.

      David Villa or Silva purely because of the nostalgia I have around the transfer threads of both on here.

      Love threads like this. In response to Bris opening post I personally felt Le Tiss was a match of the day player. Great on highlights sometimes but in general a lazy player. Don’t think he’d have lasted 5 minutes here for that reason.

      I still can’t believe we let Anelka go. Criminal we signed that c**t Diouf over him.

      I’d have loved us to sign Batty. Little horrible b***ard in the middle of midfield which I think we were lacking around that period.

      I wanted quite a few Dutch players. Schneider, Van der vaart, David's, Seedorf, Kluivert, Bergkamp and Van de saar (before he broke my heart and went to the Mancs).  Also I remember talk that we were offered a 17 year old Aguero that was deemed too expensive damn it and I was gutted but had no idea he was going to be as good as he was.

      Never rated him they much, me. I remember a young Stevie clattering him early in a game against Leeds once and Batty went in his shell and got owned after it.

      F***ing hell, I loved Stevie. Had it all.
