F* k SAKE ED!

You had me believing earlier we might just might be on the verge of new ownership now you say Yanks show signs of not wanting to sell. My only other source of credible info besides urself is my brother who was told about the Yanks trying to delay the sale process and remove Broughton. IF YOU HAVE ANY SNIPPETS OF POSITIVE NEWS PLEASE PLEASE SHARE ASAP IM READY TO PHONE THE SAMARITANS I CANT SEE OUR CLUB SINK FURTHER!

Worried weary red {ed's note - I don't have any definite news they want to stay, everything I was told was completely the opposite. That H&G absolutely hate each other, Purslow was spending the entire time acting as a go-between rather than being able to do the job he is paid to do and that they just wanted out so they wouldn't have to deal with each other. Either they are great actors and it was all a ruse to get the fans to shut up or the current info sweeping the net is total and complete bull. Personally I think the new info about them not wanting to sell is just scare mongering by someone with too much time on their hands.}

Whats all this about mourinho why would he come back to the premiership until he has won the la liga he actually spoke out and said he wants to achieve to win the premiership la liga portugease league and italian seria a he will be the first manager to ever do this and he said that's what he wants to do so i don't think he would come back to the premiership until he has won la liga {ed's note - the editor's note referring to Mourinho was a joke!!! It was not meant to be taken seriously.}

Between yahya kirdi an his investors and sheik al maktoum who do u tink is the better person 2 buy the club
clic unbeleivable if u want sheik
or baleiveable 4 kirdi
wat do u tink ed/

{Editor's Note: I am not sure enough is known about Kirdi's investors. There are a bunch of considerations not least is the buyer must be in it for something other than a short term profit. Also key is any debt leveraged on the club must be for the tangible benefit of the club (i.e. a new stadium.}

ED is the Kuwaiti the front runner or will things be held up by stalking horses etc?
You have got me excited as you sounded confident earlier we are entering end game on takeover. {ed's note - I am not all that confident mate, I am just going on the time scale that Broughton set out and from my little experience of takeovers in business terms when a number of companies are fighting to takeover. I have seen a lot of stuff recently suggesting that H&G have no intention of selling up though. But my information was that they are so fed up of working with each other that they just want rid of the club now so they don't have to be in business together.}

When i just checked liverpool website and saw the article entitled "sangria star set for return", my hopes shot i thought we signed him, my fav. player, i was happy then i clicked it and it was for carras testimonial, so close! . anyway i think he deserves no10 instead of owen. and on the transfer gossip section it seems we are being linked with honda,
any truth on this ed?

January window.

check out interesting transfer window.

ruiz coming in for 15mil money generated by kuyt to inter for 15mil. m diarra coming in for free as being on bench only. taiwo's contract expiring so he will join as free agent.
now for as if for striker, roy is going to give babel this couple of months to show what is he worth of, . if he do shine, then we going to get arda turan for 8 mil (on his last year of contract). but if babel fails to shine, then we are going to get ola for 10mil or pavlechenko for 8mil.

this will improve our squad from every angle. what do u say ed? sunil randhawa.

News from inside anfield on aquilani

roy asked him in a training session to show what he can do without the ball as well as with it - said he has loads of ability but wants him to work hard and fight for possession when he hasn't got the ball - he could not handle it - went down, pulling up and holding his ankles when tackled hard - roy said to sammy after 10 minutes he's not for me and shipped him out on loan.
technically he is a good player but he's not strong enough for the premiership - i reckon i could push him off the ball - all that wasted money - shame! !

Ross mentioned at 02 Sep 2010 12:51:00:

"i saw somewhere yesterday that the rbs have frozen intrest payments on the money owed to them by the yanks if this is true do you think this means a sale is close"

I think that this is another one of the rumours that do the rounds regularly. I don't even know what is meant by "freezing" the interest. If RBS were to have the debt cleared they would be requested to provide a settlement figure - and I would imagine they would agree to hold whatever figure they provide as a valid settlement figure for, say, 30 days. I wouldn't get your hopes up just yet.

Sharkey.

I am a lifelong Liverpool fan and began going to Anfield in 1954 (11 years old) when my father took me to the first match in the division 2 dark days. I also remember attending the Eddie Spicer benefit match in 1955. I don't usually contribute to these forums as some of the rumours are so ridiculous but I feel i must comment on the takeover rumour by the Sharjah ruling family. Information on Sharjah, the ruling family is the third richest in the Emirates, Sharjah has oil reserves of 1.5 billion barrels, the third largest in the Emirates and also has large natural gas reserves. It is also the most industrially developed in the Emirates with large numbers of companies operating (almost 2000) accounting for 47% of the Emirates industrial production. It has the advantage of ports on the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman and is strategically positioned for further development. I met the ruler Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi a few years ago (he has a doctorate from Exeter University UK) and know that he is an extremely intelligent person and would make an ideal chairman for LFC. I hope this takeover will go through, if it does I am sure Liverpool will prosper in the future. Dr. David

A few points I'd like to make:

1. Hicks said Rafa (when still in charge) would have a sufficent amount of cash to spend this transfer window on new players; by the looks of it (signing on and agent fee's not included) we have raised more money than spent so another lie! can't say I'm surprised.

2. I think we will see more youth/ reserve players in the first team this year when injuries hit - 21 senior players isn't a huge squad (world cup squads that have a max 7 games over a month period struggle with 23 players).

3. In a way I'm sorry to see Insua go; last year he needed pulling out the first team when going through some poor form but with Aurellio injured and Dossena not good enough/ tranfered he didn't get that opportunity and therefore spiralled with loss of form and confidence.

4. Although I like the fact we have a number of players who can play in a number of positions a lot of them are "jacks of all trades rather than masters of 1"; I think we're going to struggle when a couple of wide players get injued this year for width and creativity.

5. I'd love to know what Woy said to Gerrard and torres to convince them to stay; especially after seeing what players have come in this year - probably only position IMO that has got any better is left back - although i'll wait until the end of the season to confirm this.

6. If we over performed in the league (others comments not mine) in 2008-2009; Woy's got one hell of a job to do to get us back in the top 4 this year.

". .i am a true loyal fan to lfc and don't pretend to no anyone at lfc or my friends wife nan is tea lady at melwood you seem a sensible chap do you no anything about a takeover at lfc as this is the main thing that needs sorting as i fear for the future of our great club"

I don't know anything specific at this time. I responded to Blair Mayne late last night with the most recent news I have - but it is peripheral to the sale itself. No doubt there are continuing efforts to figure out the future of the club, but everything is really quiet.

Whats this about MOURINHO now?!?!

I heard that management has given Roy untill January. If liverpool are in the top 6 by then he will be allowed to spend more money, if not, he is on his way. .

Intermin Manager from within Liverpool will take over unless new manager is not signed.

Any new owners want their own man, someone with a better track record and who knows how to buy very good (and therefore, expensive) players

Roy Hodgson is said to be keeping a close eye on Thomas Delaney, the 18 year old Danish Under 21 International who plays as a midfielder in F.C. Copenhagen. On 3 November 2009, Delaney was named the Danish Under-19 Player of the Year – a prestigious award previously won by players as Jon Dahl Tomasson, Jesper Grønkjær, Peter Løvenkrands and Simon Kjær. A bid around 2 Million should seal the deal for the highly rated midfielder in January.

Hi sharkey sorry for the confusion i think i may have worded it wrong we no we have to pay roma the full 17mil
what i ment to say was that even thoe we are letting him go for 13mil at the end of the season we are saving 4mil plus in wages and bounses wich makes up the difference i think it works out well for both clubs as we don't lose any more money i see your name pop up on here quite alot and want to ask you a question iam a true loyal fan to lfc and don't pretend to no anyone at lfc or my friends wife nan is tea lady at melwood you seem a sensible chap do you no anything about a takeover at lfc as this is the main thing that needs sorting as i fear for the future of our great club regards ross

I am afraid you friend is mistaken. Liverpool contracted to pay Roma €20M (about £17M) for Aquilani spread over two years – plus performance related payments.

Regarding some of these takeover rumours. it sounds like some of us are desperately clinging on to hope. lfc will be taken over in october at the very earliest.

What is Liverpool Way? Of course, we need to bring through own young players and have new S. Gerrards and J. Carraghers. It's going to take time. But the longer we go without Champions League football, the weaker financially we become while our opponents become stronger. I don't suggest we should buy success but invest heavily to get on even playing field with other contenders, to make up for all that underspending over the years. It's impossible to buy success anyway as football is so unpredictable at times. But it's possible to give yourself a FAIR chance to be successful. You still don't agree, Ed?
Red Herring.

{Editor's Note: I disagree with investing heavily - plus we don't have the money to do it. It has not worked for Manchester City and people forget that Chelsea were there or thereabouts already when Abramovic arrived.}

To all the lies being spread about the Ruling family from Sharjah all I can say is that there are some untruths in your rumour so I am spreading some doubt here. Sharjah does not have huge amounts of oil and gas and is the reason it borrowed money from Saudi and is the only Emirate that will not sell alcohol or pork because it was one of the stipulations for Saudi lending the money. Also the Al Qasimis (spelling?) will not pass the FA test for fit and proper. Just look for them on smokinggun.com

Some encouraging news for supporters of Liverpool FC today, with reports emerging that the third-largest ruling family in the United Arab Emirates are backing the bid fronted by Yahya Kirdi.


Members of the ruling family in Sharjah are said to form part of the 'select group of investors from the Middle East and Canada' and the al-Qasimis apparently have access to splendid wealth, with natural resources such as crude oil and gas in plentiful amounts.


Kirdi has proven himself to be a quirky consortium leader, having been viewed with scepticism due to initially claiming that a deal could be completed within a week and later stating that it would take at least two months for a bid to go through.


However, according to The Guardian, there are plans in place to close the deal shortly. A Liverpool source has claimed that:


"A proof of funds will accompany the closing of the deal in a form requested by Martin Broughton, the club's board and the owners. Everyone is focused on getting this done so that the next era in the history of Liverpool can begin."

Blair Mayne YNWA eloquently stated at 02 Sep 2010 01:01:53:

"IF they are talking about RBS freezing the interest payments. Then i heard it last night Sharkey but to be honest i hadn't got a clue what it meant IF it's true."

I don't know anything of that and it makes no sense to me. I heard a couple of weeks ago that RBS would be willing to off-load the debt to another financial institution - thereby allowing sufficient time for a sale to be made without any fiscal pressure. If you recall when BarCap first became involved they came with £300M burning a hole in their pocket.

But that is it as far as I know right now. And that is as much as AP know right now; so if there are shocks coming it will not be via AP in the next few days.

Sharkey.

Again Sharkey you seem to be the voice of sense and reason and when i called you Wise, Knowledgeable and Phenomenon it wasn't a cheap attempt at sarcasm it was in Rafa's words FACT.

Roy had under £10M to spend on a striker and was insistent that he would not spend for the sake of it. I find it incredulous that he would turn down spurs bid for Babel. Might have given more money towards a striker.

Hi guys heard a rumour today in work that there will be no new owners as potential buyers are waiting for RBS to take control of the club or H&G to declare themselves bankrupt! This really could run onto next year!

H&G are in financial difficulties and cannot afford to repay the loan they have taken against the club tho!

The only official bid Liverpool have so far received is from the Indian Ambani but this was rejected by H&G! (Whoever says they have no say its all bulls* t! It was rejected cause there was no profit for them in the bid)

Purslow and Broughton are both liars this is why Rafa left! Purslow promised Torres David Villa would be signed last year but this never happened and he promised a deal for Aguero or Navas would be made this Summer but guess what nothing happened again!

Torres will leave next yr unless we are bought! 100%
