62 sounds like a lot, but remember that anyone decent over 16 is on a professional contract. Also, Taylor failed to mention that anyone 21 and younger, as of Aug 31, 2008, doesn't count towards that 25 maximum. Liverpool had 26 guys that were 22+, with 3 of those guys (Leto, Martin, Voronin) on loan.

Liverpool have brought in a shitload of foreigners the past two years that couldn't sign pro deals in Spain, Holland, France, whathaveyou, so they are about half of them.

Eat a dick Spain, we're gonna continue stealing your players.
