And it has proven to be a mistake.

He was signed as a first choice goal scorer, whatever the price, and he has not done anywhere near well enough.

I wasn't sure when we signed him as we have done better with technically proficient strikers in recent times and he is not gifted in that area.

I think Kenny has wasted a lot of money and a massive chunk was blown on this lad.

It's hard to argue with that, but i too thought it was a  bit of a knee jerk signing  because "he that shall not be named" f**ked off

The fact that a poor Arsenal side beat us at home today was a massive indicator to us about what it is that we miss.

Someone who can put the ball in the f**king net.

Without Robin van Persie, they would be well below us in the table. If we had him, or someone remotely similar in terms of quality, we'd be up there with Spurs.

Kenny cannot afford another transfer window of signings that are overpriced and not good enough.

The constant assertion that our hitting the woodwork so often is bad luck is nonsense.

We are not good enough. Hitting the post is as close to scoring a goal as hitting the corner flag - it does not count as a goal either way.

The assist stats are a bit misleading. Weve all agreed we dont have a goal scorer if we did our players would have more assosts wouldnt they? If anyone has a chances provided stat it would a fairer reflection on players performances.

LIVERPOOL FCíS players have scored only one more Premier League goal this season than Robin van Persie.

Itís an alarming statistic that explains why Arsenal are now 10 points clear of the Anfield outfit in the race for Champions League qualification.

Van Persieís double strike was a shining example of how a dead-eye, clinical striker can transform an otherwise ordinary, unspectacular team.

How Liverpool could do with a forward hungry to prove his worth and who has previously boasted a fine track record in English football.

Playing devilís advocate, someone like Fernando Torres perhaps?

Alas, that particular boat may have already sailed.

So too Liverpoolís hopes for a top-four finish, with the league campaign now in danger of drifting should Kenny Dalglishís side suffer any further setbacks in the next few weeks.

Van Persie now has 25 Premier League goals. Liverpool, taking away four own goals, have 26.

The opposition is in fact the third-highest scorer for Dalglishís men, two behind Luis Suarez and Craig Bellamy.

Of course, it doesnít help that Liverpool keep missing penalties, Dirk Kuytís weekend failure being his second of the season and the teamís sixth, equalling their worst-ever record for a single campaign.

But luck, as Dalglish lamented, has nothing to do with it. So many misses, along with 21 efforts against the woodwork, suggest Liverpool need more shooting practice or a new striker.

The truth is they probably need both. But whether Fenway Sports Group will readily hand over another £20million or so for a forward remains to be seen.

Another indication of just how desperately short of goals we have been this season. We simply must sign a finisher in the Summer window, we must.

Does anyone have any statistics on how many chances we've created this season? I get the feeling that if we could just add a goalscorer to our ranks we wouldn't be in a bad position at all.

Of course we wouldn't be in this position.

If we had a striker that can score more than six goals in three quarters of a season, then we'd be much better off. But Carroll is crap and Suarez misses way too many chances.

We wasted the chance to sign someone in January and we cannot waste it again in the Summer.

Yet again we don't score we missed out in the Jan window to get a striker now we have to suffer for remainder of season, getting a striker in HAS to be our PRIORITY in the summer window or we will have another season like this. It is no good just creating chances if no one is going to stick them away.

Well if the January window was going to be anything like the last one better we didn't dip in.  We really need one quality quality finisher in summer.  Hopefully if everything goes well we will only be in competition with Spurs and Arsenal.  We can definitely compete with them financially.  Hope the scum don't go out for a striker they have plenty and so do their neighbours.   I hope somehow Suarez will convince Cavani.

I watch suarez flick and turn and dance and lay balls off in hope of someone good enough to finish them off. He is made to have a clinical finisher up there with him and he just doesn't have one

"For those of you watching in black and white, Liverpool are the ones with the ball"

Suarez has been prolific himself throughout his career aside from for us. I really cannot work out why, because he has had the chances.
