    "The Anfield club looked to plug the gap left by Torres leaving by signing two strikers - Uruguayan Luis Suarez from Ajax for £22.7m and Andy Carroll from Newcastle for £35m."

    35m... wtf?

    Maybe they made a mistake and there was an extra 0 in the check.

    35? That's nothing. They could afford to pay 23m and 35m for those two players, because they'd just got 50m for the one.

    Don't ask me where all that dosh ends up. Russia, probably.

    Don't worry Trev you did indeed read it incorrectly. It actually says: 'Liverpool crowned EPL 2011/12 champions with Suarez and Carroll notching 60 goals between them!'.

    23m was a pretty fair price for suaraz but 35m for a guy who has only had 1/2 a season in the pl???? that's insane.
