The club is being asset stripped.

Will people stop saying "we re being asset stripped".

Is it so hard to understand IF we were being asset stripped we wouldn't be buying players BUT we would be selling players without replaceing them. which we have done. I actually think we have spent more than recieved for player sales so please stop posting this crap.

We are like a buisness don't sell your best assets IF you're looking to sell it. But knowing H&G they are convinced they know what they are doing.

* * AQUILANI SAGA * *

I posted the original rumour about Aqua and I can't believe what a stir it has caused.

Ed- how can you say "this is not true mate"?

Aqua is not lightweight and even if he was, surely tht can't be reason he was dropped or LUCAS would never be on bench let alone play every week.

He is sooooooo weak he even got man handled by Nzonzi last season vs Blackburn.

it is all about the cost and because it meant saving a 3mil pay up to Roma.

In all fairness, Rafa made mistakes but he also brought us a world class GK Reina. . A world class CM in Alonso, A world class DCM in Masch and the worlds finest striker in Torres.

Aqua is also a class act but wasnt given chance. He I worry for LFC with Roy. he seems to happy to let Purslow run the team and will prob give in to Torres bein sold and keep scratching his head fo 80mins each week before making a sub.

2 goals in 4 games, a pathetic pre season and promising Babel chances but not givin our only genuine wideman with pace a start. .

god help LFC.


PINDER SEMBHI YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - all I am saying is that Rafa was disappointed in him in training and regretted buying him and that is why he barely played him. Roy took a look at him and also didn't think he was up to the job and get rid. It was not about money, there was no pressure on either to get rid of Aqua, it was not asset-stripping, it was a managerial decision. I never said I agreed with the decision, though I personally do, he is far too injury prone for his wages to be worth paying, like Aurelio.}

To the person that wrote the following

Liverpool Takeover rumour
I was fortunate enough to have a table at Jamie Carraghers gala dinner and spoke with a board member who was more than happy to answer our questions with regards to the proposed takeover, he confirmed that the club has just done it's end of year accounts and that they'd made a profit of £35 million, there are 4 very good bids on the table from very good suitors, however all are waiting for the 6th October, when effectivley the RBS will take control of the club.

The RBS have guaranteed the board that they have no intentions of putting the club into administration or putting any additional debt on the club, therefore all the 4 bidders are quite happy to wait till the 6th October and purchase the club for the £237 million owed to the RBS, making sure that H & G don't get a penny - also H & G have no way of stopping this process, as Ayre, Purslow and Broughton now on the board and have the final say.

Finally should none of the 4 bidders be successful in the bid, the RBS have already confirmed that they are happy to take the club on and have Ayre, Purslow and Broughton running the club as they currently doing so, the debt then becomes equity. Happy times just around the corner only a month to go.

I like what you wrote. .however didn't Broughton say that he will oversee the sale of the club and move on (at the earliest convenience) when he is convinced he gets the right owners?

"Alonso handed in a transfer request but only verbally to rafa the summer transfer window before last years one where he was sold. but after a very bad season for him personally (as he'd been caught with his trousers down) Rafa knew he'd get next to nothing for him (probably 10-15m after that season)
They both (Alonso and Rafa) agreed themselves that Alonso would give it one more year giving his best and rafa would use his contacts to help engineer not only a move back to Spain but his dream move madrid!
You lot got brainwashed by the rafa witch hunt media. .
During that whole season rafa was scouting various replacements the three main ones of which where Aqua, Barry and our new signing "Meireles". . you may remember the media saying how Alonso was being treated badly as Rafa was trying to replace him with barry. . well the media would, wouldn't they. . Alonso was already leaving. Rafa was just sounding out this replacement. . Aqua man wasn't the rash signing you think he was. . yes he may off been second to barry but HE WAS WATCHED FOR A WHOLE SEASON. . not as a replacement for alonso but for gerrard in the hole so gerrard could return to central midfield. ."

I'm sorry mate, but it sounds more like you've been brainwashed by the pro-Rafa flag burning brigade. There is no way Rafa could have promised to help engineer a move to Madrid the year before Alonso left as given the players Madrid had, the elections to be held that year and the managerial merry-go-round there, predicting who'd be a flavour of the month player would be a feat only for mystics - he knows many at Madrid, but none with significant influence over a President's whims. And as for this ludicrous agreement where Alonso would give it his best, are you seriously suggesting he was in any way intentionally phoning it in for his prior season? Where did you even hear this tripe?

As for the whole asset-stripping angle, well that's straight out of another Rafa banner waver's over-active imagination. Asset stripping would've been selling Masch before he had to force his way out, lowering the price for Torres and Gerrard, not financing the moves for Johnson, Aquilani or Meireles and denying Cole's wage demands.

Aquilani was the nail in Rafa's coffin, we paid a price, paid a good wage and Rafa never chose to use him. Ultimately he was another sign of dead wood and poor spending. I'd rather we spent low and used the players we bought then go higher and bugger it up with luxury players who warm benches like Aqua and Babel. If a manager complains about a meagre budget and squad depth, but has £30m worth of players, he personally sanctioned the buying of, warming the bench and refuses to use or sell then he isn't fit for purpose.

Those who even equate his name with that of Shankly and Paisley need a little history lesson.

Hey ed, why was aqua shipped out lol. wow this guy has really got you biting. anyway not so much a rumour but a question, if the bank does take over our great club (and they probably will ) are they free sell the club for more than they are owed by the yanks. or will it just be used to recoup there losses {ed's note - in my experience a bank just looks to recoup the loan in cases of repossession. Though they will certainly not be averse to getting more if they can engineer an auction situation.}

Ed, any idea who the interested parties in the club actually are or where they're from? Dubai/ Stavely/ Sheikh Mohammed have been very quiet in the last 18 months, anything you've heard here?

Thanks.

S. {ed's note - I don't know mate, and I wouldn't like to even guess to be honest. It could be any one or any combination of people.}

Lot of banter on here concerning aquilani. Dont think anyone really knows the truth as to why he was signed and who watched him how ever many times but to the bloke who said. .

But with a big fee player like this who Rafa was counting his season on
he watched him throughout the year before he was purchased. .

He only played about 20 games the season b4 we signed him and most of them were b4 october 08 so i wouldn't say Raffa had been watching him for a year. So ask yourself how many times out of them 20 games did Rafa pop over to Italy just to watch him play?
I honestly think managers see a few snipits of a dvd (all the best bits supplied by the players agents funnily enough) scouts are sent to watch and report back (thats what they are payed to do!) if they give a good recomendation the manager will take a look for himself if possible. . Now how many times can scouts or a manager watch an injured player?
Only my opinion not a fact. .We sold Alonso and Aqualini's agent see pound signs knowing we would have been in the market or a replacment Sent a pretty dvd and we made a rash and wrong dession. He was always a risk with his injury record can't believe we payed what we did for a bloke who was still injured! Did fergie do it with Van nistlelrooy? No he waited till he was fit and proving himself again has he done it with Defour? No cause however much i hate the bloke i am man enough to admit he aint a idiot and is waiting till he proves his fitness. Whch is what we should have done with Aquilani!
Yes he showed glimpses of class but you could just tell he was the type of player on a wednesday night 8 o'clock kick off away somwhere like stoke he would just go missing
Now i hope come January or july Juventus are gonna pay us what we agreed for him not sure how much that is some people say 11mil some 16mil just hope Roy is smarter than Rafa and keeping taabs on how Defour is getting on and we nick him from under Fergies nose (unlikely but we can hope!)

Alonso handed in a transfer request but only verbally to rafa the summer transfer window before last years one where he was sold. but after a very bad season for him personally (as he'd been caught with his trousers down) Rafa knew he'd get next to nothing for him (probably 10-15m after that season)

* * AQUILANI SAGA* * *

The reason why Rafa , and now Hodgson misused Aquilani was nothing to do with his fitness or his "ability to cut it in the prem".

It was because Purslow was forcing them not to let him clock up his appearances to avoid having to pay Roma the full transfer fee and add ons.

An absolute shambles that LFC having to play Lucas and Poulsen just to have some short term cost cutting, when in reality not making UCL last season and on current evidence - Not even making the top8 will have far bigger long term effect on our great club!

Look at our midfield on Sunday- Maxi (2m) Lucas (£10) Poulsen (3m) and Jova (FREE)

How can this be the starting midfield for a team trying to win a game? Jova is not a wideman and lucas and poulsen did not create a single attack or shot on target!

AQUA will go to Juve for 11m! massive loss and again no money in Jan will be spent on any real additions.

PINDER SEMBHI YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - not true, sorry mate. Yes it would have cost money if he made more appearances, but that was not why he was left out. He was left out for being so lightweight that a gust of wind knocked him off the ball in training. Neither Rafa nor Roy felt that his talent made up for his lack of strength in the Prem.}


Thats nonsense Ed. Aquillini played quite well when he was given a few games ahead of Lucas towards the end of last season. The guy is right - our midfield is bobbins now. Rafa built the best centre midfield in Europe with Mash, Alonso, Gerrard, look at it now - awful. Birmigham had two up top yesterday meaning we should have bossed it in the middle, we couldn't string two passes together, let alone boss it. {ed's note - I never said he didn't play well, I said the managers didn't rate him. He is seen as a luxury player and we can't afford those, especially not in the cut and thrust of the Prem. How you can say the state of the midfield is proof that it was money that caused him to be sold is beyond me. He would never have been bought in the first place if that was any kind of constraint. I really wish people would stop with these ridiculous nonsensical conspiracies, the minute Rafa saw him in training he knew he had made a mistake. That is why the guy barely played, and only when Rafa had to try something different because the season was falling apart around his ears.}

LMAO. . yeah rafa paid 20 million pounds for a player they never looked at. . ED please. . i expected better of you! Ed i understand your making excuses because otherwise it will be plainly obvious to all the fans what is really happening at the club (asset stripping)
But are you really thinking that the fans that read this site are so stupid as you believe this sort of crap you spout that managers pays millions of pounds on players they know nothing about? be serious. yes some players have problems after they move adapting to new leagues. but its never the excuses reported. Most of the time its partying lifestyle affecting training or family problems and wanting moves that stop players performing
Aqualani is a second striker(in the hole) type player, the main playmaker, hence main player targeted by the opposition to stop play
He has had the s* t kicked out of him week in week out in Italy for years throughout his career as he is the main play maker so was always targeted in the worlds dirtiest league! When he played for us he was "welcomed" to premier league on many occasions and stayed on his feet and even still managed released the ball far better than most of our players, never rolled on the floor. . basicly he just took it! And you say he's lightweight. . lmao. for f*cks sake.
I understand you have to make up reason's why we sell all our most marketable players. But try to find something more realistic and do your homework on the player first!
the truth.
"aqua was to light weight" 20-30mil next season for the bank,
"Insua nobody rates him after people like you slag him off on here" another 6mil for the bank next season,
"Beni's not as good as J Cole" another 6mil for the bank,
Masch's family can't settle" another 20+mil for the bank
next season i can already see lucas and johnson being slagged off, hounded out and made scap goats
well that's another 17-30mil and 7-15mil for the banks
Plus with the true reason Purslow was in madrid (torres sale next year as was unfit and bad world cup this year) the banks will be rolling in it. . and so will we! well rolling in bulls* t like the above sort of crap

InHisShadow {ed's note - grow up. Rafa bought a player recommended by his scouts, just like he did with all his players. If you don't know that is how Rafa works then you know nothing about the man. You really need to do a bit of research and spend some time finding out what is really happening before you just regurgitate the rubbish in the media.}

That is not how any manager in the world works (well that i've heard off) And it was deffinantly not how rafa worked. . Yes his scouting team watched players. but rafa would always run the rule over any players far more than most other managers do. . But with a big fee player like this who Rafa was counting his season on
he watched him throughout the year before he was purchased. .
20 million on a player you never watch. . yeah that's why managers get payed millions ever year. . this is a multi million pound business its not football manager manager DO do there research on players. . on nearly all players. . specially on high costing players. .
But lets humour you ed. . lets say Rafa was having a breakdown and just spent 20mil on a player that he had never seen. . IT WOULD OF BEEN STOPPED by someone above him. . you really think H&G would of let him pay 20mil of there profits on a player he's never seen. . wake uo!. . .
You should concentrate on why they payed him 6mil to shut up and leave. . asset stripping. . {ed's note - you really don't have a clue do you? How many times have you heard stories about Harry Redknapp signing players he has never watched? Or perhaps you have forgotten United signed Bebe this summer despite Fergie freely admitting he has never even seen a dvd of him play? You need to wake up and get into the real world, managers regularly sign players they have never seen, that is what they employ scouts for. You really think Rafa flew to Brazil to watch Lucas play before he bought him? Because if you are really that clueless, then I am wasting my time even discussing this with you.}

On the rare occasions they don't actually see the player play they receive hours and hours of videos that THEY DO WATCH!
But brilliant example you gave with lucas. . YES he did go watch him play. TWICE. . in fact
and studied footage of him playing for both domestic and youth international level. .
and when people like alex etc say they never even watched a player. . take it with a pinch of salt. . although it is true if the player is a youth player for the future that's very VERY highly rated they will act on just the scouts reviews. . But NOT for a first team player. . and only liverpool's 2nd 20 milionl pound player. .
I know you want to make out rafa was so s* t etc etc. . so people get behind the new manger and never question and maybe even realise the REAL reason why he was in fact got rid off. . and also your site rely's on rumours so it would affect you badly if the truth about asset stripping came as we could all put the sugar daddy and marquee signings that strangely never seem to materialise to bed. .
But don't start spouting that 5million pound a year football managers pay record fee's (well very close to the torres deal) for players they have never even seen. . just so that they can see them in training and find out something that they could of found out quite easily by watching him and before paying 20millions pounds. . get REAL. . and WAKE UP {ed's note - are you for real? Are you really that stupid that you think Rafa's wages made a difference to anything? You need to get in the real world lad, Rafa was paid that money to make difficult decisions and get them right. He was sacked because he failed, and one of the failures was Aqualani, that is why Roy is getting rid. He had a long term injury, if you think Rafa had been able to watch him play while he was out injured then you are clinically insane. That is why Hodgson had so much trouble with making signings this summer - he tried to make sure he did see the players he bid for. You do know that managers very rarely watch the players they buy other than on dvd don't you? Ferguson tends to send his brother Martin to watch players, Clough used to use Peter Taylor. Once a manager has a scouting system in place they trust, they tend to use it - Rafa had that but it let him down.}

* * AQUILANI SAGA* * *

I want us to look at some FACTS.

Alonso handed in a transfer request in late July and completed move to Real Madrid on 5 August 2009.

On 5 August 2009, Liverpool announced that they had agreed a deal with Roma for the transfer of Aquilani.

Aquilani's last game for Roma was on 11 March 2009,

Rafa would have been unable to see Aquilani play prior to his last game for Roma as he would have been busy training and managing Liverpool FC, and would not have had the time to fly to Italy mid season to see a player, that he did not know he would need to buy as Alonso did not hand a transfer request in for another four months.

these are not mind games i am just stating 'Facts'

Got to be with Ed on this one.Agree re Aqua and Insua was dead weight.Lucas? well I just hope we can get a few bob for him because he has never looked good enough IMO.
Asset stripping? I don't think so, it would be pointless, achieve nothing.

* * AQUILANI SAGA* * *

The reason why Rafa , and now Hodgson misused Aquilani was nothing to do with his fitness or his "ability to cut it in the prem".

It was because Purslow was forcing them not to let him clock up his appearances to avoid having to pay Roma the full transfer fee and add ons.

An absolute shambles that LFC having to play Lucas and Poulsen just to have some short term cost cutting, when in reality not making UCL last season and on current evidence - Not even making the top8 will have far bigger long term effect on our great club!

Look at our midfield on Sunday- Maxi (2m) Lucas (£10) Poulsen (3m) and Jova (FREE)

How can this be the starting midfield for a team trying to win a game? Jova is not a wideman and lucas and poulsen did not create a single attack or shot on target!

AQUA will go to Juve for 11m! massive loss and again no money in Jan will be spent on any real additions.

PINDER SEMBHI YNWA * * * * * {ed's note - not true, sorry mate. Yes it would have cost money if he made more appearances, but that was not why he was left out. He was left out for being so lightweight that a gust of wind knocked him off the ball in training. Neither Rafa nor Roy felt that his talent made up for his lack of strength in the Prem.}


Thats nonsense Ed. Aquillini played quite well when he was given a few games ahead of Lucas towards the end of last season. The guy is right - our midfield is bobbins now. Rafa built the best centre midfield in Europe with Mash, Alonso, Gerrard, look at it now - awful. Birmigham had two up top yesterday meaning we should have bossed it in the middle, we couldn't string two passes together, let alone boss it. {ed's note - I never said he didn't play well, I said the managers didn't rate him. He is seen as a luxury player and we can't afford those, especially not in the cut and thrust of the Prem. How you can say the state of the midfield is proof that it was money that caused him to be sold is beyond me. He would never have been bought in the first place if that was any kind of constraint. I really wish people would stop with these ridiculous nonsensical conspiracies, the minute Rafa saw him in training he knew he had made a mistake. That is why the guy barely played, and only when Rafa had to try something different because the season was falling apart around his ears.}

LMAO. . yeah rafa paid 20 million pounds for a player they never looked at. . ED please. . i expected better of you! Ed i understand your making excuses because otherwise it will be plainly obvious to all the fans what is really happening at the club (asset stripping)
But are you really thinking that the fans that read this site are so stupid as you believe this sort of crap you spout that managers pays millions of pounds on players they know nothing about? be serious. yes some players have problems after they move adapting to new leagues. but its never the excuses reported. Most of the time its partying lifestyle affecting training or family problems and wanting moves that stop players performing
Aqualani is a second striker(in the hole) type player, the main playmaker, hence main player targeted by the opposition to stop play
He has had the s* t kicked out of him week in week out in Italy for years throughout his career as he is the main play maker so was always targeted in the worlds dirtiest league! When he played for us he was "welcomed" to premier league on many occasions and stayed on his feet and even still managed released the ball far better than most of our players, never rolled on the floor. . basicly he just took it! And you say he's lightweight. . lmao. for f*cks sake.
I understand you have to make up reason's why we sell all our most marketable players. But try to find something more realistic and do your homework on the player first!
the truth.
"aqua was to light weight" 20-30mil next season for the bank,
"Insua nobody rates him after people like you slag him off on here" another 6mil for the bank next season,
"Beni's not as good as J Cole" another 6mil for the bank,
Masch's family can't settle" another 20+mil for the bank
next season i can already see lucas and johnson being slagged off, hounded out and made scap goats
well that's another 17-30mil and 7-15mil for the banks
Plus with the true reason Purslow was in madrid (torres sale next year as was unfit and bad world cup this year) the banks will be rolling in it. . and so will we! well rolling in bulls* t like the above sort of crap

InHisShadow {ed's note - grow up. Rafa bought a player recommended by his scouts, just like he did with all his players. If you don't know that is how Rafa works then you know nothing about the man. You really need to do a bit of research and spend some time finding out what is really happening before you just regurgitate the rubbish in the media.}

Roy Hodgson is looking at Alexi Sanchez . . and is prepared to spend £21 m on the player . ."

This pillow talk between you and Roy?
You just crafted this nonsense parked outside B&Q?
Sammy Lee discuss it with you over diner?
Maybe Christian Purslow called you while you were ironing your trackies and asked what you thought?
Then you say that it will only happen if the money comes in, takeovers, future . . and all the endless crap people like you post!
Maybe Our Lady of Fatima will make an appearance at Melwood, but according to you . . only if there is money and a takeover on the horizon!
Clown!

Most of the names mentioned on this site concerning takeover of the club are clearly bogus, probably posted by either deluded individuals or Everton or United fans. Mind you aren't all Everton and United fans deluded?
Going to Old Trafford as underdogs is probably best.

Roy Hodgson is looking at Alexis Sanchez from Udinese and is willing to spend 21m on the player. This comes after the dismal Birmingham performance where we had no spark, no drive or passion to win the game. Sanchez will bode in well on the right wing. Before everyone says where will we get the money, this will only happen if we are taken over. If we are not taken over, then a budget of 10m plus sales will be made available for Hodgson in January. Babel will then be sold.

To: Big Welsh Scouser:

Don't forget the German arms dealer Markus von Hohenzollern-Viet who has valued the club at £490 million and is apparently in the process of due diligence. There is not just one bidder now.

TO Big welsh scouser. . The following statement loses credibility when you mention Lakshmi Mittal.
With the 6th of October nearing ever closer the fight to buy Liverpool FC is hotting up. And Liverpool have recived an official bid for the club. This bid has been made by Petr Kellner and is belived to be in the region of £600m, this he belives will give the americans a decent proffit after clearing their debts, also encourage them to sell quickly. He believes that would alow him to spend £300m on a new stadium and would give £100m to RH. Another two parties have declared interest but are yet to table a bid, these are Anil Agarwal, and the Mittal Family (Aditya Mittal, Lakshmi Mittal).

Lets live in hope, infomation supplyed by Mr I Abrahams.

Big_Welsh_Scouser

Lakshmi Mittal is currently the largest sharehold at QPR, Now im not an expert on the Football Associations rules and regulations, but Id bet my house on the fact that you can not own one club and be a majority share holder at another.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

This is true, i was only passing on the rumour i had recived, and after you pointing this out, it looks like it could be an fals rumor.

The club is being asset stripped.

No the club is not being asset stripped for a start the transfer window is closed and the club kept hold of it's best players. Your brain seems to have been stripped of any sense, stop reading the daily mail. You obviously lack the intelligence to determine what is true and what is made up to sell papers. Dum ass!
