Adam, Jordan Henderson and Downing. The hungry players needed to bring the glory years back to Liverpool, or three signings that show Kenny Dalglish is out of touch with the modern Premier League?

Have Liverpool been ripped off buying British?
But the English player market can distort values horribly, and the success of players such Rafael van der Vaart at Tottenham and West Brom's Peter Odemwingie last season suggest that if you want value for money it's best to look abroad.
Climb down from your fence of indecision and cast your vote.
