Quick buisness to be compleated in the next 4 days:

A firm offer has been made for Newcastle forward Andrew Carroll in the reigon of 8.5 million pounds. Despite their unwillingness to sell they couldnt turn down this offer as their current financial situation is not at its greatest and the player is set to travel to melwood on sunday where he will meet mr hodgson on sunday evening and be presented to the press on monday.

Our left-back situation is solved a Paul Koncheskey has signed ready to be presented to the press tomorrow in a 3.5m deal and Daniel Pranjic is to be bidded for tomorrow for 5.5m and if all goes to plan will be presented alongside Carroll on monday.

Arda Turan is being signed for 11m as a deal has already been agreed and all is left is for turan to sign and be revealed which will happen on tuesday as hodgson dosent want anyone to know its happening.

Lastly contact has been made to Real Madrid about the availibility of Rafael Van Der Vaart and Fernando Gago. Full in the knowledge that Gago is currently injured but should be back for the start of October which is fine by Hodgson. Van Der Vaart will be on an initial loan with a 9m buy deal at the end of the season and gago will be for 8m.

Our team will then look like so:
GK: Reina
RB: Johnson
CB: Carragher
CB: Agger
LB: Pranjic
RM: Turan
CDM: Gerrard
CDM: Gago
LM: Cole
CAM: Van Der Vaart
FW: Torres

Subs: Jones, Skrtel, Koncheskey, Lucas, Kuyt, Babel, Carroll

Right, Dalla Valle has signed for Fulham but there is a catch. . He has a £8m buy out clause that if activated, Liverpool have the option to match the £8m and talk to the player first. Source - Rick Parry

Sick off everyone slagging off the team they are suppose to be supporting, its too early to be critisising our players but i do have to agree with you on Lucas not been good enough fair to say.
We had probably the most difficult two opening matches and yes we did quite rightly lose to Man City but your telling me no one else has, will or wont.

I can see a good performance against West Brom after the very impressive but difficult win against Trabonspor so cmon you so called LFC Fans get behind your team.

I am a life long Liverpool fan and love the club, therefore it really hurts me to sit and read the negative, thoughtless rubbish that is spouted by so called fans on this site - Remember the words to the song 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and, more importantly, what it truly means!

For the majority of you - let me explain - It means that, whatever happens, whatever we have to deal with and is thrown our way, we will stick together, as one - Not start bitching and whinging when things do not go our way, and we certainly do not turn on the manager or players to make our point.

I have a list as long as my arm of players I believe would improve the squad but, as we stand today, we do not have the cold hard cash or the promise of Champions League football and / or the ability to challenge for the title to encourage the players to join, even if we did have funs - - I for one, would rather wait for the title to come on the back of hard work than 'buy' it, like Chelsea have and Man City are trying to do - The Liverpool way ! ! !

And please please, stop looking at you tube when you hear about a player and posting on here he is awesome - - Even I could post the best bits of a completely rubbish 'pub football' career and look pretty good - They are hardly going to post a note of all the chances they have missed, tackles they have avoided and blatant dives ! (and Im talking about Turan now!)

Hodgson is doing the best he can, with the squad the 'mighty' Rafa has left him with - Aqua was always set to go, as was Masch and the apparent fee we got for Masch was fair, considering the fact everyone knew he wanted to leave, he was in the last year of his contract and the club need the money !

So, please, if you are a true fan, not one of these numpties who believes, just because they are not bad on championship manager on the PC that they are entitled to spout an opinion or someone who has not actually watched a game 'live' for the past 10 years or, a 'follower' - then please, respect the Liverpool way and go support the Mancs (and contribute to their forums)

And, before some youngster asks the question when I went last to a game - I live in Oxford, and have not missed a game, home and away for the past 19 years, so I am fully entitled to my opinion. (I even missed my 2nd kids birth to see us beat Southampton 7-0 at Anfield)

So - Support the team and the manager the Liverpool way and, when we are finally rid of the yanks, we can start to re-build (hopefully, not just on the back of some big funds).

ED - - please post this on the main rumours site so people see it - It is very important to me and each and every true fan - and I would ask every one of you to vote : Believable = stop this negative rubbish and get behind the boys : Unbelievable = you are a 'follower' and should glory support elsewhere.

With the signings/ outgoings that roy has made so far we are increasingly looking like a selling mid-table team. I'm very worried about this season, unless roy buys some good creative players , we looked clueless and void of idea's in midfield.Lucas is useless , he can't pass can't tackle and ball watches , roy should get rid of him and give spearing a chance he can't be any worst.Hopefully konchesky is only a stop gap although he is better than aurelio and insua.I watched the celtic game last night and van wolfswinkel looks a good player and we have been linked with alot of dutch based players Bryan ruiz and Ola Toivonen , both look good players . Editor can you list the most probable signings liverpool will make in your opinion. thanks

The rumours of Lucas wanting away, are absolute rubbish, I'm sure the ed willl back me up in this, Lucas himself has said many times that he loves everything about the club and wants to stay for years.
Unfortunately though Lauri Dalla Valle will be leaving.

So lets get this straight, Dalla Valle, 18, was the subject of interest from the Cottagers in January when new Reds manager Roy Hodgson was in charge but a move failed to materialise. So now I'm led to believe Roys changed his mind and released a player who has a year and a half left on his contract! ! !

Liverpool Rumours
I am very dissapointed with hotdogson. . . i was expecting somethin huge from this guy. . after the signings of joe , jova and wilson , i was really very happy. . .then he has comitted mistakes after mistakes. . .

1.hotdog knew that cole is suspended for 3 games. .still sending Alberto '4 times MOM chosen by the Kop' Aquilani on loan

2.blackpool scored 4 goals in their first match that does not mean that they will win the EPL. Smilarly, playing David "Ypee!I scored 4 goals" Ngog before Ryan "Why does nobody gimme a chance" Babel wll not make him a world class striker

3.He is doing the same as Rafa. . .PLAYING LUCAS. . . He has been gven a lot of chances to prove himself and think he has never been appreciated by theKOP. . for all those"he is good for his age and will improve" fans. . its high time. .he was given a chance, could not prove himself and should leave the club. . (should sign Banega instead)

4.I wonder when will Hogdog realize that we need a holding playmaker, a lb , a quality versatile winger and a good young backup striker. .with only 3 days to go i wonder when will he buy

5.Look at juventus. they also failed in serie a and now are tryng hard to mprove their squad. .take inspiration Hotshotdog . . . so far they have signed-
Bonnuci
Krasic
Aqua
Quagliarella
motta
Pepe
Jorge Martnez

Now comin on to rumours
Koncheskey
Inler
Wolfswinkel

So Fulham sign a better left back i.e, Salcido, then sell us koncelski, there existing second rate left back for more! !

Has the world gone mad or just Hodgson and the board! !

The words " UP s* t CREEK WITH NO PADDLE COME TO MIND " what the hell is going on.

"We are not selling MASH until our valuation is met", so he is valued at £17 mil ? ? ? ?

Bloody clueless, first watched the mighty REDS in 1964, can honestly say, I have never been so worried for the future of our once great club.

Now it looks like that prat is selling of good young players as well, Hodgson, is in the wrong business, he should have a second hand car lot, not be incharge of one of the best clubs in the WORLD

Bit of a guess but i wonder if 2 of our youngsters are talking to Fulham maybe there are 2 players coming in from Fulham? Roy did say when questioned about Konchesky "we have spoken to Fulham about a number of players and i'd be lying if i said he wasn't one of them" ? so who were the others maybe a striker seing as dalle valle's going there what u recon ed?
{Editor's note - I think it will be an exchange of the two youngsters for Konchesky}

Hi ed

just one for you just seen fulham have signed that scalido chap meaning konchesky due at melwood soon have also just seen the two young fellas are in talks with the cotters this sseems like a good move would i be right to say the fee of them combined would match what they are looking for konchesky.

we never going to use them two lads i know they good but n gog is better and the stick alot of fans give about him been in the team so how is dalle valle going to get in.

if this happens and we sell insua for around 5 or 6 that can go towards another player if it is van der vvart they only looking about 7

smart from roy
what you think ed

I hear the latest player linked is Gary Medel I don't know anything about him appart from being a tough tackling midfielder nicknamed the pitbull. Any chance you could fill me in Ed and any idea of a value. I think it might just be another agent drumming up some publicity.
{Editor's note - It is probably just another agent drumming up interest as you say, I have never seen Medel play so can not comment on him}

Agent Reveals Liverpool Interest In Gary Medel, The player's representative believes 'Pitbull' would be the perfect replacement for Javier Mascherano at Anfield.

RE. ". . get rid of all the dead wood . Lucas, insua, ngog, maxi, Kuyt(no one will agree but not a winger waste of place on the team)"

You're right I don't think Kuyt is dead wood. He played fairly well in an advanced left flank position for Hol in WC, but LFC's current system doesn't bring out best in him (so I might agree in part with you there)

To get best from Kuyt need a more orthodox aerial target man / centre forward than Torres or play system more like dutch natioalnal team.

I'm not 100% convinced by Konschesky story and I am concerned that Masch move comes very late in the day. Clearly there are a few "irons in the fire" but at this stage moves are easily derailed and anything other than a dead cert (such as masch to barca it would seem) is decreasingly likely. So on that basis diarra doesn't look that likely but we'll see

I'd argue that we still need another striker (I'm guessing not Toivonen unless something has happened very recently) and an attacking midfielder plus the obvious left back and defensive mid. Masch will be tough to replace - there are few better in that position in europe

To the guy that wrote this
"Sky Sports' Guillem Balague understands that Barca will pay Liverpool an initial £16million for Mascherano, with a further £6million depending on performances and future success.

so ED is right it is in pounds"

"It seems that the lower fee, quoted in Spain, was leaked by FC Barcelona in order to give the impression that the player had been secured at a much lower price and that, while the final figure may end up being the same, the Spanish club were happy to leave people thinking that the variable figure was very high. However, as I understand the way that Liverpool conduct their transfer business, they would not sell an established player for such a fee with such a high percentage of the final amount up in the air and they prefer to keep the details of the package a secret between the respective clubs. The higher transfer fee now being quoted in Spain and England is, I believe, much closer to the actual transfer fee"

the above is from his own personal website and the way he speaks means we will get more than the initial 16 million as we wanted 26 mill

So fulham get Salcido and looks like we gonna get konchesky this is getting to be more and more like the twilight zone every day our club is being ruined in everybodys heart we did not want hodgson we're nowhere near a takeover and we have no funds to sign any decent players ( I hope I'm wrong on this) we need a striker 2 wingers and a left back our squad is in as bad as shape as it as last year all our academy boys are all but gone . . Nemeth eccelston for example we are slowly but surely turning into a mid table team at the very least . . The club releases no news and we are supposed to just wait I for one demand some answers cos all we have now is our history. Sorry to be so negative but at least I'm being realistic. . This is our club it's high time we stand up to these yank F@@@ERS .We are Liverpool fc and Liverpool fc is us! ! ! YNWA

Skysports.com understands Fulham are in talks to sign Liverpool youngsters Lauri Dalla Valle and Alex Kacaniklic.

The Reds duo are currently in London to have talks with the Cottagers over possible moves, where they will have medicals if personal terms can be agreed.

Striker Dalla Valle, 18, has been on the books at Anfield since January 2008 but the Finland Under-19 international has failed to break into the first-team squad.

Swedish left winger Alex Kacaniklic, meanwhile, arrived at Liverpool from Helsingborg in the summer of 2007 and has been fighting it out in the reserves.

Fulham were thought to be interested in Dalla Valle back in January, but a deal for the forward never materialised.

Cottagers boss Mark Hughes has targeted the youngsters as possible stars for the future, and former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has allowed them to leave Anfield.

Couple of concrete Liverpool rumours.

First of all Lucas Leiva has expressed his desire to leave Liverpool for the same reasons as Javier Mascherano. He has failed to settle and would seek a move abroad or even the capital.

Speaking of the capital Fulham are in talks with Liverpool to sign youngsters Dalla Valle and Alex Kacanikilic. Fulham have also tied up apparent Liverpool target Salcido paving the way for Konchesky's move to Liverpool.

With all this talk about Ashley young i think a deal with Ryan Babel + £15m would be a good deal for both clubs. Firstly i think Ryan is worth a respectable £8m as he is a good player but not for Liverpool. Plus i think you don't want to go splashing out £30m on Ashley, a player who didn't even make his countries 30 man provisional World Cup squad. Anyone else agree ?

Regarding "masch cash" and us only being able to spend half of this, your wrong. The upfront fee has been agreed whatever it is around £16m I think correct me if I'm wrong we can spend all of this because when we bid for a player say 12£m the team know we have that money from masch so we will pay it. However I they need the money immediately to replace the player we buy, were screwed and they won't accept. I hope we could get a deal with Ashley young with maybe babel going in the other direction plus 12-18£m.

"27 Aug 2010 16:56:43
With all Man Citys spending and options Adebayor is not getting a look in and many sources say he wants out, why not try a cheeky bid for him after we sell Mascherano to Barca? doe's anyone else think that he could do a job for us, i for one think he would play with a point to prove and he knows the prem and better in front of goal than most we have been associated with recently, and he wouldn't need a settling in period
redsincebirth. . . y.n.w.a"

I understand where you're coming from, and he's definitely capable of scoring some good goals, but it'd just be a case of getting one rotten apple out the door and bringing another in. Liverpool used to be built on team spirit and tbh i'd rather have an average palyer who fits in and helps him team than a great player (arguable in the case of Adebayor) who is out for himself. Let City keep the Robinhos, Adebayors etc.

To anyone talking about cup tied players-

Ashley Young is NOT CUP TIED. Nor is ARDA TURAN.

Their respective teams lost before the group stage of the Europa League, thus meaning any players who participated in the playoffs are actually NOT cup tied.
Can't remember if PSV are through or not, in regards to Ola.

Three things you forgot to think of, firstly does HE want to come back (probably not), does Madrid want to sell (being one of their better players last year, i doubt it), and we would have to repay the 30 million we got paid for him! ! It ain't going to happen! ! ! ! ! ! !

Ashley young would definitely consider Liverpool if Roy wanted him as he is cup tied for Europe so tottenham have nothing over us as young could help us get that top 4 spot for next years champions league. Plus tottenham have Lennon, Bale, Krancjar, Modric etc who play on the wings.

Liverpool Rumours
To the ED who responded to my takeover joke- Just trying to be a refreshing bit of air versus any other person speaking about the takeover :P

Kuyt looks to be staying now, and I'm well and happy about it too. Would be munch better if we could play him farther up the pitch as opposed to making him track back defensively. The man scores goals, period. But think about this- if we are to keep Glen at right back with his marauding runs, Kuyt is the perfect foil to him on the left. And while our supposed new LB in Konchesky doesn't mind getting forward, he hardly bombs, which would mean a speedy winger on the left would be fantastic (Babel, anyone?!) like a Turan or a Ruiz or a Young.

I rate Jova a good player but he's like Kuyt, only slightly faster. Play him up top in Nando's required 15 game downtime per season.

I think liverpool should use the money from mascherano and BUY BEN ARFA really good player on the wing and get ASHLEY YOUNG cos villa ant going to do much and he is a good player so both of these should be ours and we would be BANGING and we should play insua he is a good kid COME ON LIVERPOOL

Any news on Arda Turan Ed? {editor's note - I haven't heard any, but I am hoping Roy will move for him using the Mash cash.}

RH stated the other day this is a no go (gutted for obvious reasons)
Regarding the Mash cash Liverpool will only see half of it, Konchesky and Wolfswinkel

With all Man Citys spending and options Adebayor is not getting a look in and many sources say he wants out, why not try a cheeky bid for him after we sell Mascherano to Barca? doe's anyone else think that he could do a job for us, i for one think he would play with a point to prove and he knows the prem and better in front of goal than most we have been associated with recently, and he wouldn't need a settling in period

I know some of you may laugh at this but this hand on my heart 100% true.

My younger brother who is 13, well his brother got a picture in his new Liverpool strip with Joe Cole within the past week (sorry don't know the exact date) and in the same picture was Scott Parker who was in Liverpool. He showed me the picture before with the three of them in it, 100% gods honest truth. Now i'm not saying this is a rumour by any means, I even think Cole and Parker may be friends and this was the nature of his visit. However with Parker strangely stalling on a bumper contract and with a bit of paper talk over the summer I'd think it'd be a coup. Ill try get the pic off him to try and upload it.

Just to clarify i'm not suggesting we're going to sign Parker just stating the truth.

' . too much like Torres for your liking? Are you mad? Why would that be a bad thing? Because we would hate to be paying only 10m euros for somebody who is similar to the best striker in the prem. Terrible bit of business that

You fool ha'

Assume you are not a football fan - Have you ever watched a team who play two players up front who are similar in their style ? - They make the same runs, look for the same pass and generally get in each others way, so they end up that they cannot play together effectively - ya fool

Anyway - Have also heard a whisper that Carew will be coming to Liverpool - £3m - plus Taylor from Newcastle - £6m.

Liverpool Rumours
"England was a great experience, but I am here to stay, " said Aquilani.

"Leaving Roma was a hard choice, but it helped the club financially. I am a professional and Juventus is a fundamental move in my career and to help me step back towards the national team.

"There is a will to do well here. Scudetto? We can do well, but Inter have something more."

So he's accepted he's gone. . .

So fans once again. . WAKE UP!

We buy a 25-30mil player (he would of cost that if he wasn't carrying a long term injury when we bought him) he has to adapt not only to a new culture, country, language. team players and movement, managers tatics etc but to the most physically demanding league played at a new fast pace after playing at slow tactical Italian pace and coming back from a long term injury. . Hmmm. . how long it take drogba, Henry etc?

Yet after re-occurrences of his injury at the end of last season (when rafa finally started to give him time on the pitch) he started to show what he was capable off. . .

Like i've said all along. . its time to wake up. . we're being asset stripped his replacement was the free signing of J cole. .

Poulson for Masch. .

WAKE UP. . before its too late. .

Deal with Liverpool to sign Mascheranowww.fcbarcelona.catFC Barcelona and Liverpool FC have reached agreement in principle for the transfer of Javier Mascherano, who will join the club for the next four seasons.


The agreement was reached after considerable effort from the club over the last few hours and the willingness and desire of the player (HIS WIFE, MARADONA & LIONEL MESSI) to make the move.

FC Barcelona will give more details of the operation once the player has gone through his medical and the transfer is definitive. Javier Mascherano is expected to arrive in Barcelona this weekend.

Think with masch gone lfc will be able to move on as a team with no hastle in the squad. Anyway don't agree with anyone who says we need a new left back . Insua looks to be staying , aurelio, mavinga, kelly. Why is youth not given a chance at lfc anymore . look at the money we are paying for all these young talented players and they are not even being given a chance. In my opinion spend masch money on a lw and cf .
Would love to see turan better player than young who is over rated and half the price. No brainer . And up front Ruiz . With these two signings plus pacenco, amoo, kelly, mavinga and spearing coming through and given a proper chance things could start to look up for lfc . In Jan get rid of all the dead wood . Lucas, insua, ngog, maxi, Kuyt(no one will agree but not a winger waste of place on the team)

With only 4 days to go in the transfer window and the money from masch not being available til sunday at the earliest expect roy to go for players he already has a knowledge of as would any manager.

i.e. rafa and all teh spaniards, houllier and the french.

expect roy to go central - eastern european.

i don't think toivanen and van wolsfwinkle will be coming to lfc but expect a striker, maybe even a premiership striker!

konchesky will be in before the deadline, guessing fulham are just waiting on salcido to finalise.

there has been grumblings of a CM player but i don't think we have te resources to prioritise for that position.

Liverpool Rumours
Re: all this stuff about us being short-changed on the price of Mascherano. A player is worth what the selling club is willing to accept and what the buying club is willing to offer. If he went for 17.25M plus add-ons then that is exactly what he was worth at that specific moment in time.

For example Hatem Ben Arfa. How much is he worth at this moment in time now that he has shown his willingness to refuse to play when it doesn't suit him?

Market forces.

{Editor's Note: Sharkey mentioned right at the start of the window that Bordeaux walked away from Marseille's request for 5M for the player as they thought it was too high.}

"Ola Toivonen/ Ricky Van Wolfswinkel will come in as back up to El Nino"

Rubbish. You will not get a good striker to come in as 'back-up' and spend half their life sat on the bench - why the hell should they. If it's a good striker you are after then we will need to switch to 4-4-2 so that they are on the pitch most of the time.

If it's back up to Torres then we need either a young up-and-coming (which we already have - N'Gog), or a journeyman/ end-of-career who is happy to play 10-15 minutes a week and provide injury cover.

Don't think we're going to get a 5 star act to come and bench warm. Doesn't work that way. £ star at best if it's for the bench. And remeber, if we go for a young 'un, it will not go down well with N'Gog or Pacheco so in all probablity if we do go for one for cover it will be a 3 star has-been. Or we switch to 4-4-2.

Liverpool clearly need wingers with pace and who are able to go past defenders unlike the the wingers we already have. All the top teams have them, malouda, anelka, kalou, walcott, nasri, arshaving, valencia, nani, miliner, johnson, silva, lennon, bale. giovani dos santos, ashley young, downing. All these wingers are far better than the ones we have who do not have pace and can't get past top defenders. I know that we are short on money but if you look at some of the transfers that have gone through or potential cheap wingers better than ours, who are quick and able to get past a defenders for example Quaresma went to besiktas for 5 million and has already scored 4 in 5 appearences. 5 million is nothing for a player of his class. potential buys we should make SWP(5-6 mil), ben arfa (6 mil), mancini (3 mil), vukcevic (4 mil), drenthe (6 mil),

Since the Mash transfer confirmation this morning everyone has been talking about how we have been hard done by the £16m plus £6m add on's. I want to make it a little clearer, even though £22m (potential total) sounds ok it isn't as great, people on here are talking in £'s however, Guillem Balague (spelling) spoke about the figues in Euros not Pounds, taking into consideration the current exchange rate that ammounts to £13, 134, 780 up front and a further £4, 924, 844 depending on future success, apperances etc that may have been added to the deal. Therefore all this talk oabout spending the £16m we have received upfron for Mash is wrong. That dirty little argy chap got what he wanted and we have lost out on what we deserverd in terms of money. We took him away from West ham, re-built his career and this is the thanks.

Heard from a mate at work that RH is looking to bring in up to 4 new players before the end of the transfer window.

Paul Konchesky is almost a certainty (nothing new there)
Gokhan Inler is the replacement for Mascherano
Ola Toivonen/ Ricky Van Wolfswinkel will come in as back up to El Nino
Hatem Ben Arfa/ Arda Turan/ Charles N'Zogbia will come in as options for the wings.

This is what he told me, he seemed very confident in his information but to me it seems a bit far fetched (hope i'm wrong). What do you think Ed?

Personally I think Konchesky and an attacker will be all we sign as I can't see the yanks freeing up too much money for Roy.

I agree he had to go there was no way he was staying with the way he's been lately but that fee imo is about half what he is worth Gutted! !

With only four days left in the transfer window, I honestly cannot see Roy being able to bring in more than 1 new face. I would like to so Pacheco given more opportunities (more than a 15 minute sub), kid is going to be quality. I have a bad feeling that we got the short end of the stick in regards to the Masch deal. I know Roy said he wouldn't go for anything less than their valuation, but I'm thinking the region of 17M is what we got (any updates on the ACTUAL fee, Ed?) This is ridiculous based on what Barca got for Yaya (28M). I'm hoping Caceres was thrown is though. Our riority has to be a pacy winger, a QUALITY striker, OR an attacking LB. I only see one of these happening. For the near future, we have to look at our CM. Poulsen, Lucas, and whoever cannon win us the PL. Stevie G needs some help. . I know he's been linked forever and whatnot, but Ever Banega is quality. Would also like to see Martinez from Bilbao come before his price tag gets too high.
Fingers cross for LFC!
-BK

{Editor's Note: The fee seems to be as you suggest. Don't get wrapped up in comparing it to the Toure fee, it simply doesn't wash. If a club paid us double what a player is worth, does that mean we should pay double for his replacement - this is what you are suggesting.}

Have been on this site daily for the past two months and have seen us been linked with just about everyone now, for the life of me I cannot understand why we are being linked with so many central midfielders, ok so we have Gerrard and Poulsen and maybe or hopefully we get Lassana Diarra, beacause he has Prem experience, but all these other guys like M Diarra, VDV, Parker, Gago, etc, do we really need them , where do we play them, none of these guys will want to be here to warm the bench, and I don't wanna see any more massive wage bills on the bench either, after the Man City debacle the other night, its clear we need strengthening in 4 areas, LB, L&RM and a quality striker to partner Torres, we had no pace or creativity on Mon. night, and paid heavily for it and it will continue to be the case unless we sort these areas and these alone first, pointless wasting money on other areas unless it improves the team dramatically everywhere else is covered by what we have in our squad, we have no money so we need to spend it in these areas only.Hopefully it will all be sorted this week or prior to Tues. next.

What we have:
GK:Reina/ Jones.
RB:Johnson/ Kelly
LB:/ ? ? ? / Aurelio
CB:Carra/ Agger/ Skertl/ Greek
DM:Diarra?/ Poulsen
AM:Gerrard/ Cole/ Lucas/ Pacheco
RM:? ? ? ?/
LM:? ? ? ?/
ST:Torres/ ? ? ?/ Kuyt/ Babel/ Jovanovic/ Ngog/ Dal Valle.

If we can fill in the blanks with some quality then there is no reason as to why we cannot improve on last seasons horror show.

LB: Could Gibbs be prised away from Arsenal, a certainty to start at LFC.
RM:Jesus Navas, showed at WC what he was capabale of and maybe the Nando link might help
LM: Someone on here mentioned PSV winger Ddusksk (not sure of spelling)only 23, has an eye for goal, am sure he would have the hunger and desire to be a success for us on the P.L and don't think he would cost the a ridiculous amount, like Young or any others we've been linked with.
ST:Its difficult to know who, but someone who could be a good foil for Nando or play up top if as a lone striker himself. Tevez would have been perfect, does huge work creating space for the team, maybe Roy could ask for Bojan in the Masch deal.

Would much rather Roy spent heavily in these areas as opposed to buying guys that may not start games. Just my 2 pennies worth folks, pissed of how poor we were on Mon. night and hope we get these key areas sorted soon. The only way is up.

Mascherano will probably be gone today. I know we've already agreed terms but he should be OUT of the club by the end of today.

Ed, what are the chances of Liverpool signing Ricky Van Wolfswinkle? He's the only player we Roy hasnt denied we've been linked with.

{Editor's Note: Maybe he will visit Anfield in the Europa League. If Liverpool make an acceptable offer I think you may see Wolfswinkel make the move.Will he be happy to sit on the bench?}

To the person who said. . .

Ricky van Wolfswinkel is on his way to Anfield - A fee of 10m has been agreed.

From all accounts, will be a good quality addition to the squad altho a little too much like Torres for my liking.

. . too much like Torres for your liking? Are you mad? Why would that be a bad thing? Because we would hate to be paying only 10m euros for somebody who is similar to the best striker in the prem. Terrible bit of business that

You fool ha

Apparently the fee for the greedy argie mercenary is allegedly £17.25M. No player included, or none mentioned yet.
I would hope we get one thrown in though as this falls short of what Woy was after.
What's the chances Ed?

{Editor's Note: I have not hears what the fee is but thi seems to be broadly in line with expectations. To the best of my knowledge there is no Barca player involved in the transaction.}

{Editor's note - I am not sure if this is true but if it is I think Liverpool should try and get a deal agreed with Ac Milan before Tottenham does}"

Liverpool cannot offer Huntelaar Champions League football, and if he is a back up to Torres, can pretty much only offer him a place on the bench. I am not sure that Liverpool would be an attractive option for the player - who co-incidently does seem to have lost much of the edge he had at Ajax and, to a certain extent, his touch in front of goal.

Sharkey.

Hi Guys,
My source are a couple of friends from Spain, they where the ones that told me Higuaine (spelling) had fallen out with Ronaldo (I was the first one to post this rumour back in Dec/ Jan) and as a consequence wanted to move to LFC. . . .O.K. they all kissed and made up making me look a bit of a t* t but believe me we where very close indeed! ! !

This same source contacted me last night and whilst we where chatting about the under hand Barcelona, they are RM fans, they told me of our marquee signing? ? ? "cheer up at least your getting Edin Dzeko"! ! !

I know I couldn't believe it either, there explanation is that apparently Wolfsberg are loaded? Ed I am not sure about this but apparently they are the richest club in the Bundesleager? Can you veryify that as you know more about this stuff than me and I wouldn't know where or how to find out?

But the lad wants out I think they missed out on Europe last year? Apparently they are interested in Babel plus cash, now I remember seeing an article about Babel going there for 9m a couple of weeks ago, so I know there is SOME substance to this, they said his buy out clause was £36m but Wolfsberg would be willing to except £25m + Babel.

Guys Dzeko is arguably one of the best strikers in world football, top goal scorer in the Bundesleagure 6'4" fast, strong and absolutely deadly in front of goal. They where adamant that conversations where taking place behind the scenes. Before everybody presses unbelieve, is there any one out there with knowledge of the German league or of Wolfsberg or Bosnian connections? I know there is some truth to this from the English media with Babel what about the German media?

Guys if this is true then my God do we have an attack!

HOLY CRAP WE GET IT, WE CAN ALL READ. MASCHERANO IS GOING TO BARCA.

Not a single one of you scooped the story, not one of you called this happening with the exact fee on the exact day. Ugh, seriously. Stop posting it. We get it.

With 16m up front to spend, I hear that Roy hasn't really changed any targets. Of course, my source is the voice in my head, and if you all are to be believed, he is ridiculously reliable which means I'm ITK.

In seriousness- Roy is expected to up interest in Bryan Ruiz, the left footed wonderkid. Would love to see him here, but only after Ashley Young. Konchesky deal should be completed by Saturday afternoon.

Takeover to be completed when someone with the right amount of money decides for it to be over. {Editor's Note....Erm. Talk about stating the obvious, we get it too...}

Hi ed
just wondering now we have the macha money, who do you think we will sign

{Editor's Note: This is the kid in the sweetshop approach to transfer - get the money and go out and spend it. I think possibly a left sided player who can give width in attack but can also be used in defence. A Graeme Le Saux type player. Note that I am not suggesting approaching Le Saux - but he does sem to fit the bill for Roy age-wise.

Hi ed, can't understand why we are being linked with so many striker, would like Torres, kuyt and babel to be our options with a holding midfielder a fast skilful winger and a left back comin in. What's the chances of Gokhan Inler comin? If not then m.diarra would do. On the wing I would love to see young or mata. Who do you think we have a chance of signing? And what positions do you believe we are looking to fill?
Lee the red

{Editor's Note: We also have Pacheco and N'gog. Inler is a fine player but with Poulson, Lucas and even Gerrard able to cover that role it seems unlikely to me. I am not a fan of playing a holding midfielder particularly as you need to lose a player elsewhere. I would expect in the longer term to see Gerrard to take less of an attacking role as he gets older - particularly as his distribution is second to none. For me I would play him there now.}

Hi Ed
Knowing that there was a very real chance of Masch leaving all along, RH will have done lots of thinking already on how he might spend that money, asssuming he gets most of it.
So is it realistic to think that he could be almost ready to make a couple of very swift bids, and maybe bring two players in within the next 4 days?
We know he's keen to get a striker (hence the Ola bid), so will he use the new money to increase the Tiovonen bid, or go for someone different? And if he has enough from Masch, do you think he'll look for a winger or a LB? Or not risk an expensive and hasty move on anyone, without doing the scouting, 'homework' and assessments, which are almost impossible in the time left?

Liverpool Rumours
Liverpool need to sign some wingers with pace and are able to go past defenders, clearly we don't have much money but se should make loan moves for drenthe and ben arfa, or try to sign n'zogbia and try for ashley young with the macha money. At the moment we don't look like an attacking threat what so ever, we allways look like we will win by the odd goal which is not good enuff. Surly the more attacking we are able to to do, the more chance we will create which will mean less defending. in my opinion liverpool should have accepted the ogffer for kuyt. all the top teams have quick wingers apart from us, chelsea, malouda and anelka/ kalou/ sturridge. arsenal arhavin/ nasri/ walcott. spurs Bale/ lennon. united valencia/ nani/ park. And in my opinion babel should be a striker and not a winger he is much more of a threat than ngog

A question for Ed.

Now that Toivonen and Wolfswinkel are now cup tied (teams qualified for group stages), do you think Roy will still pursue either of these players (assuming he was pursuing them at all), or might he may turn his attention to Turan (not cup tied, given Galatasaray were knocked out)? if not which striker/ frontman would you like to see him buy?

Do you think Roy has looked at Defour, and if so do we have any chance of signing him, or, has Old Blue Nose's "love" letter coerced him to the "dark side" and tainted him for life?

To this guy. .
First of all Mascherano has two years left on his contract which is why we have rejected numerous offers for him. He has now been given permission to speak to Barca now a fee has been agreed. Secondly stop reproducing every bit of transfer gossip from the last week, you've just threw up a host of rumours and sentenced them as if you were an agent. Every Liverpool fan has seen these rumours via the website already. So unless you provide concrete sources stop being an idiot.

STOP CORRECTING PEOPLE WHEN YOUR WRONG YOURSELF! ! ! !
MASCHERANO, as has been stated time and time and time again, had 18 months left to run on his contract he signed for liverpool in feb.2008, a four year contract . this would and does leave 1 year and 6, soon to be 5 months.

There is value in correcting/ helping people, but when it comes to a virtual attack on a poster, make sure you don't make yourself look like the IDIOT.

Liverpool Rumours
As we all know, the deal for Macsh to Barca has been agreed, however, I have it from a good source that Liverpool will only receive £16m up front - The rest (which will reach £22m), is solely dependant on appearances and how well Barca do in both the league and Europe so, potentially, if they do not meet their targets, it could take up to 5 years to receive the remaining funds (and it will be a min of 2 yrs).

With the other sales and funds made available by the board, we have in the region of £40m to spend.

Do not expect any players from Man City - They would rather pay a player to sit and watch than sell to an immediate rival, but Villa are in a mess, so expect Hodgson to try for: Carew (£4m) Warnock (£12m) & Young (£18m).

Obviously we will not get all 3 (I expect Carew only), so we will look for a powerful defensive midfielder and speedy winger - Turan would be great from what I have heard, but Hodgson seems to have said a big no-no (smokescreen maybe?) {editor's note - you know City can't let a player sit and watch don't you? If a first team player plays in less than a certain number of games (I believe it is 5%), then they can have their contract ripped up and become a free agent. I don't think even City will want to lose all their expensive buys on frees.}

{Liverpool and Newcastle will find out in the next few days who has won the race to sign Marseille winger Hatem Ben Arfa.

The 23-year-old has gone on strike at his French club in an effort to force through a move.}
Do we really need a player with this mental attitude, when we have just basically sold Mascherano under similar circumstances? We will sign Steven Taylor, versatile, young and english. Ashley Young won't happen, nor Ruiz, although Toivonen has a good chance of completing his move. No Turan either.I could see Hodgson plumping for van der Vaart though, but only on a years loan.

So Mascherano has now left the building. . Maybe now we can start the our season proper and build on last nights gritty performance ! I think that our first priority will be getting the right left back so to speak closely followed by another striker ! ! 4 days to go Roy, lets get it right from here on in !

AARRGGHH! what is Hodgson playing at, Ben Arfra is more trouble than he is worth, we need to keep well away from him. we should be looking at Pjanic instead, much better player with a very solid attitude.

Now Mascha is all but gone we have Poulsen as a rather aging replacement but surley we are able to prise Lassana Diarra away from Madrid, he is not getting games and would be a great replacement, he is younger and could well turn out to be a much better player. I hope it's him we are looking at and not Mahamadou Diarra, that would be a bad signing.

Furthermore to my post about Mascherano going to Barcelona, his fee etc, etc the most comical thing I find is the Statement issued on Liverpool's official website (by James Carroll) . . .

Liverpool Football Club have agreed terms for the transfer of Javier Mascherano to FC Barcelona.

The Spanish club have now been given permission to speak to the Argentina midfielder.


"Permission to speak" . . he, via his agent, had probably sorted out wages, bonuses, etc, etc last Saturday, only a signature was missing, but I suppose we as a club have to make it look like things are done through official channels.

TO THIS PERSON:

Well these next few days are expected to be hugely busy on Liverpool's terms. We will sell Mascherano to Barcelona for £20m, a good value on a man with a year left on his contract and clearly one with no loyalties. We are no longer looking to sell Insua, but are in talks with Fiorentina over a loan move, which will see us pay 50% of his wages and a potential fee of £5m. With these to Argentinians leaving, Maxi Rodriguez will join them, having joined Liverpool to be seen by Maradona, who would want to see Mascherano. With Masch leaving and still a huge Argentina player, he will join him for around £6m, with a year left on his contract.
Joining Liverpool will be likely Carlos Salcido for £3m, with Mark Hughes unwilling to do a deal for Konchesky, while Wayne Bridge is priced too high at £8m. Mahamadou Diarra will also join for around the £9m mark, and is a perfect replacement for Mascherano. Finally a striker will be signed, and with Ola Toivonen and Loic Remy out of the picture, we have set our sights David Trezeguet, a striker with proven experience as a great goalscorer. The deal will be in the region of £7m.

First of all Mascherano has two years left on his contract which is why we have rejected numerous offers for him. He has now been given permission to speak to Barca now a fee has been agreed. Secondly stop reproducing every bit of transfer gossip from the last week, you've just threw up a host of rumours and sentenced them as if you were an agent. Every Liverpool fan has seen these rumours via the website already. So unless you provide concrete sources stop being an idiot.

The Mascherano saga (i.e. which club he would actually join?) has finally finished, pending him passing a medical, with the Argentine crying off to Barcelona (I say crying off . .to the tune of £5 Million a year approx). Whilst no exact fee has been declared yet, Guillem Balague understands that Barca will pay Liverpool an initial £16million for Mascherano, with a further £6million depending on performances and future success.

If this turns out to be fact, then many will say "£22 Million" (I personally see the fee as £16 Million, add ons are questionable) is not bad for a player with a year or so left on their contract, and even moreso on a player who no longer wanted to be at the club, I just hope Roy gets to use the £16 Million before Tuesday's deadline.

Roy to make swoop for s. defour now that mascherano deal sewn up, but although stating that he will sign no more players this transfer window, Roy is expecting competition from fergison., who has already put ground work on the player. Hopefully roy can steal a march on fergie as fergie must have meetings with his board first, and liverpool can offer Defour a guaranteed starting possition, a place he would have to fight for @ swimchester.

Shaun wright Phillips could also be on his way to anfield as he is out of favour at eastlands. He is also of English nationality and would add more cutting edge to the liverpool attack as a right winger.

mancini is unwilling to sell any man city player to a PL club. hence the reason bellemy was loaned to cardiff, they pose no threat. no man city player will be sold to LFC unless part of an exchange ie, ireland to villa to get milner.

Liverpool fc can live without Mascherano. When LFC sell Masch, they should get around 27 million (pounds) but this probably won't happen due to the unwillingness of barcelona to cough up the full value for macherano. Due to the suitation, Liverpool could end up getting a mere 20m for mascherano even though he is worth closer to 30m.

If the transaction occurs between barcelona and Liverpool only get 20m, Ashley young will become a priority signing for liverpool.

Ypung nearly joined LFC from watford a few years ago, but Benitez thought he was overpriced.

Hodgson is also a fan of Young and due to his English nationality would qualify for the new home grown rule.

Shaun wright Phillips could also be on his way to anfield as he is out of favour at eastlands. He is also of English nationality and would add more cutting edge to the liverpool attack as a right winger.

Konselely (fulham left back) (please excuse spelling) is on his way to anfield. He has an English nationality and this will also benifit LFC with the new home grown rule and will also add much needed dept to the liverpool squad.
