Liverpool fans. .
After Monday nights game a few things where going through my head but not all where about the proformance but mostly about the take-over situation. I have not posted for a while but read most days. Ok so the first thing that went through my head was has there been any real bids? I don't know? But what struck me as coincidence is that one mentioned in the past has been none other than the citeh owners relative has it not? That led me to think why on earth did citeh owners choose last nights game as their first game to attend? Strange?

Ok heres an idea - how about we don't get this bryan ruiz everyone is talking about - in my opinion people who nowone has ever heard of who have one good season usually dissapear anyway i.e. lavezzi. anyway sevilla want ruiz but only if they can sell fabiano first (hmm a most likley less expensive proven goalscorer who is world class) SO BUY LUIS FABIANO! ! would only cost about 10m.

To fill our left-back issue - what about daniel pranjic - struggling for games @ bayern and would probabley come as cheap as 5m.

It has become very apparent we need wingers - yes mr hodgson that means real wingers not former strikers who benitez likes playing out of position. I reccomend Arda Turan (who like pranjic has stated we are his dream club) and juan mata who would cost 15m and maxi rodriguez (worth the sacrifice me thinks)

Lastly since we have let aquilaini leave on loan we should get in van der vaart who is surplas to requirements @ madrid on loan initially and his buddy gago, who is also surplas and would cost around 8m

So in summary:
IN:
Luis Fabiano - Sevilla - 10m
Daniel Pranjic - Bayern - 6m
Arda Turan - Galatasary - 11m
Juan Mata - Valencia - 15m + p/ e
Rafael Van Der Vaart - Real - loan
Fernando Gago - Real - 8m
Total: 50m

OUT:
Javier Mascherano - Barcelona - 25m
Emiliano Insua - Real Zaragoza - 5m
Damien Plessis - Benfica - 2.75m
Charles Itandje - Marseille - 1.2m
Krisztian Nemeth - Olympiacos - 1m :( this guy wudda been really good
Jay Spearing - N Forest - 1m
Nabil El Zhar - Burnley - 800k
Peter Gulasci - Tranmere - 250k
Maxi Rodriguez - Valencia - p/ e
Total: 37m + we already have about 22.5m money to spend which more than covers it.

Team:
GK: Reina (Jones)
RB: Johnson (Kelly)
CB: Carragher (Skrtel)
CB: Agger (Kyrgiakos)
LB: Pranjic (Aurelio)
RM: Turan (Kuyt)
CM: Gerrard (Lucas)
CM: Gago (Poulsen)
LM: Mata (Jovanovic)
CAM: Cole (Van Der Vaart)
FW: Torres (Fabiano)

Others: Bouzanis, Darby, Robinson, Wilson, Ayala, Shelvey, Amoo, Babel, Pacheco, N'Gog, Dalla Valle, Eccleston

Press Believable if you agree and unbelievable if you dont

Is it true?
Liverpool getting Banega?
Would be a great signing to control the midfield.

If we got Banega and Ruiz and another striker, I think we'll be set playing with Cole and Gerrard and Torres and possibly a great striker. Its a realistic deal and could easily happen, Banega and Ruiz have been heavily linked and so have many strikers. Just need to get them ASAP. 1 Week left. After city's game, I was dissapointed with Ngog and Lucas, personally I don't think they're fit for Liverpool, I mean yeah, Ngog gets into get posistions but everytime he gets the ball, he tends to loose it.
Ruiz is a very skilful and fast player and a player Liverpool lacks. Banega is strong in defense and is like Alonso, he can produce great balls and good quality play. Roy is offering Mascherano and 10m for the lad. And Ruiz is around 14m?


Get these three transfers and I'll be very happy, they're realistic signing and just need to happen.
Ed - Reckon there's much chance of them signing? {editor's note - not really, very little chance of them happening this summer.}

Roy inquired Valencia about the status of Juan Mata but was told he is not for sale. Now he is serious about a bid for Ever Banega and is willing to offer 10m+Lucas. Banega would welcome the move, but is asking for 75k wages. Roy has postponed his move for the CM until he captures the signature of a new striker.

"Ok don't all slate me for this im just saying what i "thought" i saw, i live right near the dw stadium and as i was walking past today (25.8.10) at around 3pm i swear i saw roy hodgson arriving in the stadium he was driving a silver mercedes convertible.
As he was at the chelsea vs wigan game the other night i thought he was watching someone don't know who though (nzogbia? figuroa?) so was he arriving to make a deal? If there is any reason why it couldnt be him then feel free to bring it up like i said i just "thought" i saw him."

No one should slate you .
But I don't think Roy do any of the deals, he always persisted its Purslow that do the negotiations . .
Or Maybe just Maybe Roy was making a deal for the Wigan managers job

Roy

Liverpool eyeing cheeky loan swoop for Bayern Munich £30m striker Mario Gomez

Liverpool have made an inquiry for Bayern Munich's £30million-rated striker Mario Gomez.
Sources in Germany last night revealed that the Anfield side had asked to take the 25-year-old on a season-long loan but his wages of £125,000 a week are a huge stumbling block.
Gomez, the most expensive player in German football, was expected to join Real Madrid before the end of the window but the deal looks to have been shelved by the Spanish giants until next summer.
Gomez finds himself fourth choice behind Ivica Olic, Thomas Muller and Miroslav Klose - who has been the subject of interest from Besiktas.
Yet Gomez said: 'I have made my position clear - there will be no transfer.
'I want to convince the coach that he will soon field me in his starting XI. Hard work will be rewarded, I am sure about that.'
Liverpool want a striker to take the burden off Fernando Torres's shoulders.
They have been rebuffed in their efforts to sign PSV Eindhoven's Ola Toivonen but may return once Javier Mascherano's transfer to Barcelona goes through.
They are desperate to sign a left-back but are also considering deals for Lille utility player Mathieu Debuchy and Real Madrid's Mahamadou Diarra.
Juventus, meanwhile, are interested in Sotirios Kyrgiakos.

Even if he was don't think any of the wigan squad are good enough for liverpool, everyone of them was useless against chelsea and blackpool

U were walking past the DW stadium, it's in the middle of a shopping complex you would have to walk a half mile out of your way to "Walk past" it.

If there is a Liverpool press conference on Friday, im pretty sure it won't be Roy in attendance unless he is planning to fly all the way back from Turkey for a news conference about the West Brom game or something else? I have a feeling if there is one, Broughton and Purslow will be in attendance reassuring us Liverpool fans that they are trying to find the best buyers for the club and they are in talks with a few parties. Or hopefully announcing a new signing or something , but that is just wishful thinking , preferably a left-back.

In response to. . .

. . .But the motivation behind DIC's move is different to that which inspired the spate of other foreign takeovers in recent years, a well-placed source close to the deal said last night. "This is not about turning Liverpool into a trophy asset, " the source said. "It is not a case of Liverpool becoming the sheikh's personal plaything. DIC is a serious international player in all sorts of fields and this is one opportunity among many that makes sense.". .

. . . Listen mate, that whole post you put up sounds a lot like something pulled out of the archive from when DIC and sheik Mohammed were on the verge of buying us just before the two cowboys! !. .Infact, I'm sure! . .Look mate, we follow this site in search for real info on our club, and like Shanks said. " Its more important than life and death!". . So please stop sending in what the little voices in your heads are telling you. I mean, why would you type stuff you know is made up? Is your life so empty that you get kicks out of creating your own version of reality and sending it in to your fellow fans who are really searching for the truth on our beloved club?!. . Come on guys! Its time to stop it now and and behave like adults. .

And if what is really going on with regards to our situation is too much to take, go jump off a cliff and let us try to uncover the truth and make sense of it all please.

if an offer for liverpool is accepted we won't have the investment as the 10 days needed for the premier league to asses the bid would take us into september. so everyone needs to chill out we all new it was going to be a tough season, we just have to keep behind the team and show were the best fans in the world. the good days will return but not this season im afraid :( must be said i would just like every one else like to see the club bought, and end all speculation and distraction offthe pitch around the club so that the players and coaching staff can simply concentrate on football.

also ed wot do think about the shiek's supposed pending offer ? {editor's note - what do I think in what way mate?}

Barcelona prepare improved bid for Liverpool's Javier Mascherano

Liverpool want 26m for their wantaway midfielder
Catalans may offer Alexander Hleb and Martin Cceres

Barcelona were tonight preparing a renewed bid for Javier Mascherano after the coach Pep Guardiola admitted that he wanted to sign a defensive midfielder. The comment comes in light of Mascherano's refusal to play for Liverpool at Manchester City .
Barcelona's initial bid of 15m (£12.3m) with 5m more in add-ons was rejected by Liverpool. The Anfield club are understood to be holding out for a fee closer to 26m. That is a valuation Barcelona are reluctant to match but they remain hopeful of concluding a deal by offering players in return, and because of the determination of Mascherano who has made his position abundantly clear to leave.
Although Guardiola refused to name the Argentinian directly, he did admit: "If a defensive midfielder arrives the needs of the team will be resolved. If one arrives I will be satisfied. I will only speak about [Mascherano] when he's here, if he comes."
Barcelona believe that is likely despite the fact that they are not in the best of financial health. The signing of David Villa for 40m was carried out by the former president Joan Laporta, amid criticism from the new president Sandro Rosell at what he described as the club's "stratospheric" debt which he calculated at more than 400m.
Rosell's first act when he was elected in July was to seek a bank loan for 150m to cover players' salaries. He also admitted defeat in the pursuit of Arsenal's Cesc Fbregas, unable to offer a fee much in excess of 40m, and forced through the sale of Dimitro Chygrynskiy, even though Guardiola wanted to keep him.
Barcelona are prepared to offer Liverpool Alexander Hleb and Martin Cceres in part exchange, to increase the bid beyond the current 20m. Pressure is building on the new president and sporting director from Guardiola to get the deal done.
Politically, they cannot be seen to have failed to provide reinforcements. Barcelona also believe they have a huge advantage because of Mascherano's willingness to fight for a move. Their hand is stronger, certainly, than during the attempts to sign Fbregas, when their bullish confidence, both from the former regime and the current one, turned out to be misplaced. arcelona did not count on such stubborn resistance from Arsne Wenger and could not raise sufficient funds to persuade Arsenal to sell and although Fabregas told the Arsenal manager that he wanted to leave, he was unprepared to publicly rebel.
Mascherano has asked not to play for Liverpool, while his agent has openly spoken about his desire to depart England for Spain.Some are criticising the club for letting Yaya Tour go and effectively replacing him with the same type of player for much the same price. Tour fetched E28, £24m. In total, the fee for Mascherano looks like settling at a similar level.
The situation, though, has changed: when Barcelona sold Tour, the Ivorian's agent had repeatedly spoken out in public about his client's dissatisfaction at being a substituted and contract renewal talks had also stalled. Barcelona also sold him in the hope of raising the funds for a bid for Fabregas.
Having failed to secure the Arsenal captain they now have a vacant slot in central midfield that Guardiola believes has to be filled.
Barcelona may have one problem, though, with sources suggesting that a late bid from Internazionale should not be ruled out.

Guardiola and Hodgson on Masch

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has confessed his club are looking for a deep lying midfielder. His comments come just a day after the Spanish champions made an offer for Argentine international Javier Mascherano. "If a defensive midfielder arrives the needs of the team will be resolved. If one arrives I will be satisfied, " Guardiola said without mentioning Mascherano though he did imply the Liverpool man was a target adding. "You'll have to ask [Andoni] Zubizarreta [Barca's sporting director]. I will only speak about [Mascherano] when he's here, if he comes."
Meanwhile Roy Hodgson was less circumspect after the Reds' defeat by Manchester City on Monday evening. "Javier Mascherano is not in the right frame of mind at the moment to play the game because his head has been turned by the offer from Barcelona, " he said. "The fee that the club thinks is the correct fee and one that has been offered are very far apart and unless that can be resolved he might be unhappy for a long time." When questioned about the possible process and timetable for a deal Hodgson was keen not to expand. He added: "I'm not going to get involved in that. The discussions between the club and Barcelona are being held at high club level. As a result I don't really want to start speaking and saying things that may or may not be true. "The danger of those questions is that I could give you an answer and if my answer is not 100% correct then all of a sudden I'm creating headlines. I have no wish to create headlines over the Mascherano situation. "It's not the first time these things happen and there are a lot of clubs at the moment suffering from their players being courted by other clubs and players therefore being unhappy and required to fulfil their contracts."This has developed over the last few days. I haven't heard about the situation for the last two or three days."

Real Madrid ballwinner Diarra favours Liverpool over Man Utd

Real Madrid midfielder Mahamadou Diarra is in the sights of Liverpool.
The Daily Mail says Liverpool are weighing up a free transfer move for Diarra should they sell Javier Mascherano to Barcelona.
The powerful 29-year-old is one of four players earmarked for sale by Jose Mourinho and Real had slapped a £6m price tag on him. However, it is understood they will now allow him to leave on a free transfer for the right club.
Agent Frederic Guerra said: "Mahamadou is still a top player and he can do a great job in the Premier League. There is a lot of interest."
Manchester United and Blackburn have also been credited with interest but Liverpool would be his preferred option.

Reina

Wikipedia has Mathieu Debuchy down as a midfielder (deep-lying playmaker)/ right back. Mahamadou Diarra has a £6 million price tag not the overpriced tag some have mentioned. I'd take the Barca offer that includes Hleb. At least that would give plenty of cover and competition for places. Too many forwards and left backs linked at the min it could be anyone, David Trezeguet did'nt play much of last season and neither did Roque Santa Cruz but at the right price/ loan both would score goals if fit.

get yourself down the kop end, spend your hard earned money to watch that average, pathetic pure excuse of a CM running around aimlessly and then tell me you want to "give him a chance". .

He can't even keep up with Barry who is sloooooooooow.
Even Kolo Toure burst past him last night. He has no positional sense either.

STOP asking people to support a player that would make us 7th position again. You can tell Gerrard and Torres know he is weak too!

Livepool need 4-5 players
A left back
Holding midfielder
Two wingers
A striker

We should sell Mascherano, Kuyt, Insua, Lucas,
With that we could get about £50-60Million

In my opinion i think we should get
Cacares- Fast, strong, good crossing
Ever Benega- GREAT passing ability
Bryan Ruiz- Quick, Skillful and can score goals
Arda Turan- Same as before
Grafite- Fast, Strong and can finsh
Good back up for Torres

If we get them we could have a Lineup like this:
Reina
Johnson Carragher Agger Cacares
Benega Gerrard
ArdaTuran J.Cole Ruiz
Torres

Subs:
B.Jones
Skrtel
Aurelio
Babel
Jovanovic
Ngog

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum: A new owner with the means to match Abramovich

The £450m needed to buy the five-times European Cup winners is small change to Dubai International Capital. Nick Harris believes the pay-off may be considerable

What do buy when you are one of the world's richest men and you already own everything most other people can only dream of? Yesterday's confirmation that Dubai International Capital, an offshoot of the empire controlled by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, seems to be on the verge of buying Liverpool hammers home the answer: a Premiership football club.


But the motivation behind DIC's move is different to that which inspired the spate of other foreign takeovers in recent years, a well-placed source close to the deal said last night. "This is not about turning Liverpool into a trophy asset, " the source said. "It is not a case of Liverpool becoming the sheikh's personal plaything. DIC is a serious international player in all sorts of fields and this is one opportunity among many that makes sense."

Not a rumour, but a fact.

Some posters here seem to think we have unlimited funds. Of course I would like Ashley Young and Aguerro, but we haven't got the money!
So stop giving Roy a hard time for trying to make do with what he has.

The real tragedy is that Adam Johnson for £7m last year.
Instead of buying english youth, Rafa went for Aquilani

In my opinion Liverpool will need a new centre-mid, Lucas aint good enough, he isn't very creative with the ball, also aqualini going to juventus doesn't help, so we need a decent centre-mid like banegna.
Also dirk kuyt should be sold, push glenn johnson up to right mid as he's a poor defender and give martin kelly right back, liverpool also need a left back, which we will be signing and we need another centre forward/ striker, giving young players a chance would be a start like pachecho

Mr Nishant its Uncle Leslie

I totally agree with your comments we have got weaker, slower and lack creativity. No pace no strength no skill those should be the key attributes on the CV of Lucas Leiva.

Now onto the more serious stuff, hodgson has tried to arrange a deal for L Diarra for a fee of 10m and is also looking to loan VDV.

Liverpool Rumours
Mascherano will be sold this week for around 25m and he will be replaced by mahamadou diarra.
Madrid were originally looking 6m for the midfielder but are now willing to let him go on a free transfer. Expect this signing to be announced later in the week.
With the 25m from the Mascherano sale Toivonen and salcido will be brought in for 14m and the rest will be used to sign a winger.
The match last night showed hodgson that Liverpool lack pace and creativity in the wide areas.
Don't know who he will bring in, but, would like to see arda turan.
I also think Kuyt should be sold, especially if we can get 15m for him. He is too slow and when he takes his first touch the ball goes down the other end of the pitch.
15m would get a quality winger with speed, creativity, and the ability to work hard like kuyt.

Man city will not sell or loan SWP or bridge to us, so pointless mentioning their names.
We need a winger, striker, left back and centre midfielder.
If these positions are not filled, there will be no improvement on last season. We will then lose torres and that will result in the club losing value! !

Something needs to be done Asap

trezeguet (loan)
salcido(£3m)
debuchy (£2 - £4m)
ruiz or turan (£12m)

this is a realistic look at our options, obviously I'd like better players and hope we get better players but we simply can't afford it

I think we'll settle on £18m for Masch - eventhough he's better and worth more than £26m toure, but with £18m we can fill the positions we NEED to fill

Keith Harris claims an overseas buyer is considering making an offer of between £400million and £500million for Liverpool.

The former Football League chairman, who has had a hand in the sales of Aston Villa, West Ham and Manchester City in the past, said due diligence has already been done.

Harris also said the party he was representing was not one mentioned publicly before.

"The overseas buyer we represent has completed due diligence. A huge amount of work has been done, " he said.

"It is none of the groups mentioned in the press. The ball is now in our client's court to make an offer.

Last nites performance has shown us we need 4/ 5 new players in the first 11. lucas, ngog and babel are not good enough for liverpool.thats not just cos of last nite.they have never been good enough.should get about 18m.
jovanovic should only be used as cover for a decent left winger-ashley young 18m.
if kuyt wants to go and we can get 10/ 12m for him we can use that for a right winger-maybe bentley.
if we can get 20/ 25m for masch we can get a midfielder and a 2nd choice forward-defour and toivonin.
get rid of insua for the same price as either salcido or konchesky.
nemeth, s gone.sell el zhar and plessis too.

I'm afraid I think it's going to be trezeguet, salcido and possibly diarra from real this week. I know funds are sparce, but we should be after young players who can make impact with lots of pace and a cutting edge we've missed. Plus we could make profit on young players coming in. If we sign the players I've mentioned, they're getting on a bit, no pace and past it. I imagine we'll pay £3 for salcido and get trezeguet and diarra on loan, so not bad business.

Would rather have a pacy winger any day. . We've missed this since mcmanaman

TEAM SHAKEUP

All these rumours regarding who's coming in. .

How about we concentrate on whos going out?
Because after last night, FINALLY the penny has dropped for most fans. .

Lucas is not good enough and would not even get into Birmingham City's Midfield.

Kuty is a "hard worker" but that's only because he has to chase back the ball he so easily gives away!

Lucas - Csnt pass, can't shoot, can't tackle and can't run. . I would let leave for even 4mill

Kuyt- 9mill + and I would piggy back him to wherever it is that will take him


Jovanovic is a "trier" but I doubt LM is his position.
Why Aquilani or Babel were never given same chances Lucas and Kuyt had (i.e 20 starts a season or 5 games in a row) is beyond me. .

From our squad, our first XI should be:

Reina GK

Aurelio LB
Agger CB
Carra CB
Johnson RB


Cole LM
Masch CDM
Aquilani CAM
Babel RM

Gerrard FWD
Torres STR


If we need to get defensive or cover injuries we can bring on the Poulsens/ jovanovics of the world. .

but as a first XI we need STRENGTH & PACE . .
The above team provides that.

If we sell Masch - Lassana Diarra has to be the man. 10-15m would easily do it and he is still young with proven prem pedigree.

Believable if you agree we lack pace and creativity with mundane players like lucas and kuyt. and Believable if you think we should have loaned Lucas out instead of Aqua

Finally some good news - Hopefully!

Keith Harris claims an overseas buyer has completed due diligence for a potential takeover at Liverpool and is now considering an offer between £400million and £500million.

Liverpool are attracting global interest in the quest to secure new owners to replace American duo George Gillett and Tom Hicks at Anfield.

Several possible buy-outs have fallen by the wayside, but there could be fresh hope for Liverpool in the form of a previously unpublicised party.

Harris, who has had a hand in the sales of Aston Villa, West Ham and Manchester City in the past, said due diligence has already been done.

Impossible to predict
"The overseas buyer we represent has completed due diligence. A huge amount of work has been done, " he said.

"It is none of the groups mentioned in the press. The ball is now in our client's court to make an offer.

"I do not think the deal will be done before the transfer window closes this month, but the next pressure point is October when some of the RBS loan of £237million has to be repaid.

Back up for Lucas you must be going at it heavy on the pipe mate as every Pub Team in Europe has someone who would provide cover for him based on last nights performance! Just not good enough for LFC (Mind he is not alone either).
Awayway onto rumours: No end to the Takeover anytime soon, Broughton playing a very dangerous game as he is giving as much time as possible for credible new bids to be made my source who is working in the city suggests exisiting bidders getting very frustrated with the lack of forward progress which could result in any remaining formal bids been withdrawn as early as this weekend.

So disappointed after last night. Just shows that a money injection is so important now or Torres, poss Stevie G will probably go January or sooner! The delays in making any signings just shows the owner situation is no closer, and relying purely on sales income. Can't see the positives unless RH produces a miracle from what seems will be a limited budget, and alot of forlorn faces on the pitch last night , obviously unsettled by spreculation re moves. Need another marquee signing as too much pressure on JCole to produce straight away, striker, with LB and DM - Augerro / saicido / Banenga, ideal - prob toivonen / swp / konchesky - 6th, 5th at best.

Liverpool Rumours
Liverpool and Barcelona are close to agreeing on a fee for Javier Mascherano. They are around 3million away from a deal to take the whining Argentine to the Nou camp (Good riddance aswell). Inter Milan are going to offer Liverpool a selection of players for Dirk Kuyt. Victor Obinna, Nicolas Burdisso, Sulley Muntari and David Suazo are just some player being offered in exchanged for Kuyt with the fees ranging from 3-8 million depending on which player if any Liverpool choose. Soto and Insua are interesting Juventus. They have heard of Liverpool's interest in Trezeguet and are willing to let him leave for Soto and Insua in exchange. As for in's, Mathieu Debuchy is the latest player Roy is looking at to replace Mascherano. He is also a right-back and would provide good competition for Johnson. M.Diarra is also being touted as an In at Anfield aswell. I expect Liverpool to pay the 14 million PSV want for Ola Toivenen and Carlos Salcido. I expect them 2 plus 1 more to come in at Liverpool , most probably another midfielder.

I love our great club and it pain's me to say it but I feel we won't win anything again until Roy realises that playing Lucas & Kuyt in the same team just doesn't work. Both don't have the speed or ability to perform at the pace of the premier league! If Inter want Kuyt let him go as long as they pay at least £10 million he works hard but surly that should be the minimum a footballer gives?
If anyone come's in for Lucas with at least £6 million let him go.

We need some pace. SWP would be a good signing and a cheaper option than Ashley Young. But we have Babel give him a chance on the right wing it's got to be a better option than we currently play
Benega of Valencia would be a perfect replacement for Lucas. (Valencia need to sell!)

Give Poulsen time, he will show his worth in the DM role and that will free up Stevie, J Cole, Jova and Nando

Also on the subject of left back may be wishful thinking but Gibbs @ Arsenal isn't going to be happy bench warming

ED what do you think?

{Editor's Note: Poulson has spent most of his career taking the man and not the ball. In fact, he played for six years without even knowing the game was played with a ball. Gibbs - zero chance.}

If Roy wants to play 4-4-2 that's fine, but he needs funds to get players who can play this formation well.

Sell Masch & Kuyt while the going is good:
Masch 18 million + Hleb
Kuyt 10-12 million

Then, try bring Riise back at left back & hope to God that Ageuro would come to Liverpool for around 25 million and the knowledge that he'll be playing alongside Torres.

Hopefully we can line up with a proper 4-4-2 then like this:

GK-Reina
RB-Johnson
CB-Carragher
CB-Agger
LB-Riise
CDM-Poulsen
CAM-Gerrard
LW-Cole
RW-Hleb
SS-Aguero
ST-Torres

On the bench:

GK-Jones CB-Skrtel LB-Aurelio CM-Lucas LW/ ST-Babel ST-Jovanovic

Alberto Aquilani is set to complete the final stage of his medical at Juventus today and it has emerged that the Turin club have an option to purchase the Italian in their loan agreement with Liverpool.The 26-year-old will, as expected, have his wages paid by Juventus. However, should the Old Lady be happy with Aquilani's impact then they will be able to send 16.5m euro over to Anfield to make the deal permanent.

Juventus in a swap deal involving Anfield defenders Emiliano Insua and Sotiris Kyrgiakos for Veteran French striker David Trezeguet, but they are not the only team. Zaragoza and Hercules are also interested in him.

We all saw the match yesterday . . .and in opnions the team was dreadful. . if roy keeps playing a team like this i want the anger to be changed. . . ngog(who is played as a backup striker) should have not been playin. . lucas was ea*. . carra was showing the signs of an old man. . . and it was as if torres is too good for the team. . .rafa laid the foundation and now roy is working o it. . . why was there a need to loan out aqua when roy knew that joe has been suspended and there was no specialised cam. . .also if he had ben loaned out why did he have to play gerrard and lucas together . . i mean why couldnt the more experienced poulsen play or even shelvey(who is far better than lucas). . .although kuyt is the most hardworking player. . he was not lookng good. . he could not deliver even one good cross. . and also jovanovic. . .

after the match . .here is my opinon
sell:
Lucas -7m
Kuyt -15m
Mascherano-25m
Ngog -loan out
Spearing -loan out

buy:
Banega -9m
Bolatti -13m
Ruiz -13m
Salcido -4m
SWP -8m

Squad(first 11)
GK-Reina
RB-Johnson
CB-Agger
CB-Skrtel
LB-Salcido
CDM-Banega
CDM-Bolatti
LAM-Cole
RAM-SWP
CAM-Gerrard
ST-Torres

Second 11
GK-Jones
RB-Kelly
CB-Soto
CB-Carra

CDM-Poulsen
CAM-Pacheco
LW-Jovanovic
RW-Maxi
SS-Babel
ST-Ruiz

For some reason Roy Hodgson is in talks to bring in Lille's Right back Mathieu Debuchy dubbed the terminator because of his fearless style of defending for 2 million.

Come on Hodgson we need attacking players not defensive. bring in some striker and wingers

{Editor's Note: Mathieu Debuchy is not a right back, he is a midfielder.}

This is a rumour page not an opinion page , moving on to genuine rumours. . Salcido for 2 mil , defour very possible if masch leaves also we cud made a bid for swp on deadline day because he wil be behind silva, johnson and possibly balotelli

{Editor's Note: The problem will be the wages, the kitty will need to cover the cost of the transfers that take place plus any increase in wages. Additionally, don't forget the 25 man squad rules.}

Liverpool Rumours
The mash deal won't go through till jan, we will get around 14 mil, Salcido the only player who will sign before deadline day. no sale of the club looks likely in the near future, yanks trying to push it through because they will default on loans if its not done by october. looks like a struggle for europa league again.

Just heard Graham Hunter on talksport saying that Liverpool are probably going to get around £20M for Mascherano and are looking at M Diarra (Real Madrid) as a replacement for around £10M.

I reckon that'd be a really good bit of business. I think that would still leave around £12-15M to spend, so maybe we could get Toivonen.

The club has already been sold ? ?

Ed, please post this in rumours.

Dose anyone els think that with the current LB problem Roy should play Carrager as LB as he can play anywhere along the back line, and play Agger as a CB?

Riise (£4m) and Toivenen (£9.5m) to sign.

King Carra-Gold is the best!

Why do we seem to be playing Torres when obviously he is not 100% fit! ! We need to buy a striker 'Now' not when were miles off the pace.

What did we learn from last night.

The obvious? - We need a decent LB?! FAST!
Temporary solution - PSV SALICIDO !

If an Italian team wants LUCAS (good squad player) but not a first team player . Let him go !

Madrid selling 3 midfielders grap 2 of them ?

No speed in the wings ? 2 Wingers needed left and right.

Sell Kuyt - Replace with a proper winger? or didn't we see the damage Adam Johnson did? Ok he was against our make shift LB but still?!

JOVA is not a LW he or BABEL should be the backup forward ?!

If lfc has been bought we should sell kuyt, mashc, lucas, rodreguiz
and buy 4 top class player and a couple of back ups.
i would recomend
for kuyt (10mil) - aguero (25-30mil)
mashc (25mil) - ever banega (15mil)
lucas (7mil) - any descent midfielder
rodreguiz (6mil) - either ashley young or aaron lennon or SWP or milner! !
plus 2 more player

Guys just a thought. . if mascherano does leave (dnt want him to bt no use keeping if he wants to leave) how about fernando GAGO as a replacement?

Dont think we need to panic about todays result. No masch, no cole, out of sorts torres. it wasnt our strongest 11 and it was a flat performance. that being said i do feel we need to buy and we need to make a few good quality signings before the transfer window shuts. Ruiz, toivonen, defour, salcido would all b quality additions to the squad. I also don't see why we don't take a look at swapping masch plus money ibrahimovic. .him with torres is easily the deadliest partnership in the world. I think the arda turan move will happen when we can acquire him on a free. As of now tho we really need to bring in maybe 3 quality players, just to breathe some life into the squad

Liverpool are ready to step up their attempts to make a double swoop for PSV Eindhoven pair Ola Toivonen and Carlos Salcido.

Liverpool made an enquiry for Trezeguet after allowing Alberto Aquilani to join Juve on loan.

Barca are thought to have resurrected their interest in signing Mascherano, with a bid of around 20 million (£16.3m) for the wantaway midfielder.

Hey guys ive heard a rumour that the club has already been sold and the big give away is work has recommenced on the new stadium (i don't believe it but has any1 else heard this?)!

If the club has been sold then don't expect any signings until January cause it will take a while for the finances to be put into place! Torres and Gerrard know this!

i do think it will be a very difficult season and its def time for Lucas (the adopted Brazilian) to leave!
