"according to "caughtoffside.com" Woy considering £4m for Owen" Ed a bit harsh the reply concerning Marlon King, I think if Owen was to ever come back and he scored the goals we require wouldn't the past Scumbags UTD be forgiven? Mark JFT 96 {ed's note - and the fact that he was partly responsible for Fowler leaving with his petty demands? What about him then jumping ship when the club needed him because someone waved a few quid under his nose? Anyway he is an injury prone has-been who isn't good enough.}

For me Owen/ Rat is as welcome as H&G but that's just me.

Just heard a rumour at my local bookies. According to one of Roman abramovic's body guards, Torres on his way in January. He has had regular meetings. Could explain his lack of enthusiasm. His agent did say at the start of the season he would be in England for some time. (But not necessarily with Liverpool)

Are you having a laugth? A bodyguard, if he is lucky, is sat outside a room on a not very comfy chair (to keep him awake) bored off his tits. He is not hanging out with his employer like a best mate talking 'footy' and getting the inside info. Get a grip.

According to "caught offside.com" Woy is considering a £4m move for Owen, why? I'm not really sure Woy is the man for the job, think he is doing this to keep fans on his side, think new owners if there are any (fingers crossed) will move woy out and go for a bigger name that can attract the types of player "The Mighty Reds" are used to you. Your thoughts Ed! {ed's note - not a hope in hell of this being true. For one it is on caught offside which just make up stories to get hits. For two Owen would be about as popular as Marlon King in a woman's refuge.}

Get 50 mill for him and get some width in the team I thinks.

Maybe Richard Branson is using all the sponsor money raised in next years London Marathon to buy the club, after all people have already posted he doesn't use his own money for new ventures. (as I didn't get a place in the Marathon I won't be able to help raise the cash)

I have heard from a very reliable source, that two parties have completed due dillegence this week and that one has made a formal offer!(they are waiting on a response from second bidder) And these biddes have satisifed the non owner board members they have the funds and the correct motives to help bring a bright future for liverpool. But this offer is not up to the value Hicks wants for the club and he is doing all he can to scupper the deal and is now working with his legal team to do all they can to stop or slow down any deal to give him more time to raise money to refinance or achieve a higher bid. Gillete has had enough and is willing to accept the fans have had enough and staying would only further de value the club. Also the premier league have again been informed that a change in ownership maybe on the horizon. Dont shoot me down, give it 3 t0 4 days and I guarantee you will hear a club statement from chairman Martin Broughton."
hello, macca
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Macca i think this is the 1st time you've commited yourself as in date's/ days (3-4) so i myself will believe it when i hear it.

I'm not saying you are wrong mate but i'm not saying you are right either.

IF what you say is true about the statement for me it will probably be the same sort of statement we have heard before

"We have interested partie's at the table who have yet to make a formal offer but the sale process will continue to ensure we find the right owner for the club"

Of course i'd love for what you've been saying to be true but we are talking about LFC at the momment and who know's what's going on. I honestly don't even think that the board know's what's going on as Hick's is trying everything to refinance and he could succeed.

GREAT NEWS! Deal done. I have regularly posted on here over the last few
weeks that Richard Branson would be buying LFC.
I can confirm that this deal is 99% done. The MD of investments Ian Ackerley and Claire Gates who
is Virgin Moneys MD have completed due diligence and the sale is almost done. Announcment I am told will be before the derby.
The only sticking point is that Hicks is pushing for more $. Greedy * * , I believe the price to be £340m but Hicks is determind
to push the price up and squeeze Branson for more.
Hicks is furious with Broughton and has said "not a dime less than $600m (£380m)"
You heard it here first guys.
Open up the bar its time to celebrate!
Razor-Red

. . . . . . . mines a VIRGIN COLA! Lol :-)

I have seen some funny rumours on this site, but this is without a doubt the best - Mr Branson is, on paper, an extremely wealthy man, but if you actually look into his finances, the majority of his funds are tied up in either ongoing business ventures or long term investments, therefore, on his own, he just cannot afford the club - He also has a ruthless track record of asset stripping companies and, above all, is a businessman who will insist on a hefty return

David moores is a money grabbing, dishonourable excuse for a human being, it is down to him and only him that we are in the mess were in.He had the chance to sell us to the Arabs but double crossed them, breaking a gentlemans agreement for thirty pieces of silver, dont ever forget that. .

'we definatley need a striker . maybe swap kuyt for juan mata (mata can play both attacking-mid and striker)'

- Come off it, have you seen how well Mata is playing this season? It'll never happen, especially as Villa and Silva left. Also, he's supposed to be signing a new contract soon.

"Apparently that's not the full story at all. Liverpool were in negotiations with Madrid to take Owen back, Madrid wanted his wages off their books and we're willing to do a deal around £10m. Then Newcastle came in with a madness bid of £16m and Madrid asked Liverpool to match - which of course they didn't (and shouldn't have after selling Owen for £8m the year before). Given Madrid's eagerness to get Owen off the wage bill Liverpool told Owen to say he wasn't moving to Newcastle and call their bluff blah blah blah.

Firstly, who cares? Secondly, I thought this was common knowledge three or however many years ago it happened - we were never going to pay that & madrid would never have accepted anything less after newcastle's bid. Owen was in limbo, as he was last summer. Anyway, it's acient history - we've got more important things to worry about at the mo' thanks very much

Actually, the original criticism was aimed at David Moores, so i think this is very relevant with our present financial predicament.

From sources which i have been looking at about speculation at anfield this is what i've found out:

about the takeover rumours apparently several parties are looking to buy but are not willing to match hicks asking price . so it could be january or maybe even next season before something is finalised.

. about transfer rumours these are a few players roy hodgson has been looking to buy; Valter Birsa (auxerre) , Dimitri Payet (france-u21) , Keisuke Honda (Japan national team) , Pavylchenko and dos santos (tottenham) , marko marin (werder bremen) , mario gomez (bayern) . gomez could be bought (20mil or swapped for babel plus money from masha deal)

players possibly leaving: lucas (malaga) , aquilani (juventus-option to buy) , cavalieri , degen , babel (switch for gomez - tottenham or birmingham) , johnson (inter 13-15mil)


personally i would like to see johnson replaced at right-back , lucas replaced from midfield , kuyt from wing
the 3 above make to many mistakes throughout the team and are usually at fault for our losses this season i.e man city 3-0.

we definatley need a striker . maybe swap kuyt for juan mata (mata can play both attacking-mid and striker) hodgson need's to stop playing 4-5-1 and focus on 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 as torres can't handle being loan striker same with n'gog . . this is all 4 now thanks

Michael owen in an interview with four four two mag said on moveing from real madrid liverpool was his prefered move .he met with benitez and rick parry but liverpool failed to find the cash (sounds familliar) so moved to newcastle.

Given Madrid's eagerness to get Owen off the wage bill Liverpool told Owen to say he wasn't moving to Newcastle and call their bluff as they would loose out with the transfer window closing (by having to pay him his inflated salary until Jan window). Newcastle then offered Owen a massive salary on top, will all the perks - helicopter rides to work etc and being an exceptionally greedy individual with no real loyalty he took the deal with Newcastle. Anyone remember the news of the world fake Sheik that trapped Swen (England manager at the time) - he was quoted in the meeting as saying that Owen told him that the deal on offer with Newcastle was just too much money to turn down!

Rafa saw this as a huge snub (after the sneaky move the year before to get to Madrid) - hence the reason why Rafa wouldn't take him on free last year before he went to Utd.

Can't really blame Rafa in Owen's case - hopefully he's enjoying the splinters sitting on the Old Trafford bench! When he retires, no fans will remeber him fondly. . greed had ruled his career.

I think we tried to get Owen back for what we were paid by Real Madrid - £8m because I think it was believed that we had first option on any transfer back to England. Newcastle paid ridiculously more than double this figure - £17/ 18m. I am sure if Owen had stated that he would only move back to Liverpool, he would have been allowed to move back to Liverpool, even if Real were getting less money. Just look at the Van der Vaart Spurs deal - £8m. He was been touted around Europe for double that transfer figure only days earlier. All clubs need to balance up their balance sheets. So i am afraid Owen was either badly advised by his agents or he really wasn't bothered about playing for liverpool again. I believe it was his agent who is and was the problem.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
THE PROBLEM WAS OWEN, OWEN'S AGENT, STUBBORN RAFA, OWEN'S FRIENDSHIP WITH SHEARER AND FREDDIE SHEPHERD. LETS FACE IT LIVERPOOL FANS OWEN HAD ALREADY STARTED TO GO DOWNHILL BEFORE 2004, PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF INJURIES AND HIS OTHER 'INTERESTS' INCLUDING HORSERACING.

Good. As long as we are properly compensated i.e £5m more than we paid. We better not sell at a loss again.

{Editor's Note: I very much doubt we would get £5M more than we paid for the player. £5M less is far more likely.}

If benitez had any decency he would give us what he paid Portsmouth at least (£18m).

Dimitri Payet has been scouted by Eduardo Macia, with extremely high recommendations. Payet is the player seen to add width and goals to our team. Should he keep on scoring, his price will probably end up being 12m rather than 7m. Juan Mata IS a likely target, as Valencia are in a worse position than us financially and have deadlines to meet. a bid of 14m is likely. These will be funded with the left overs from Mascherano, and the sales of Babel and Lucas. A striker will not come in January, unless Bayern Munich decide to let us have Gomez on loan.

It is my belief that Standard Charted will quietly nudge RBS to sell the club away from the Americans. I believe that when new owners arrive, a whole new optimism will sweep through Anfield amongst the players. Expect at least one big name signing in January.

I absolutely agree with this. H&G have strangled the club from top to bottom. Confidence is low, but once a takeover happens and the lead weights are removed, it is amazing how optimism will spread throughout the club.

This is theturdz speaking
david moores should be arrested for total deriliction of duty of liverpool football club god i hate that b* tard his ownership of the club was a complete disaster from start to finish now we have to get the help of hollywood stars to get the yanks out ive pasted these comments from the web today read as follows:

You won't believe who's involved. I've been stunned by terrific reaction of so many celebrity Reds, and many, many fans want to be involved in the film too

It is important to get the message across that the fans want Hicks and Gillett out.

Therefore, I flew up from Cape Town last night to come to Liverpool to make a short film here this weekend in which Liverpool fans and stakeholders will tell Tom Hicks - and the world - what they think of him. We are going to shame him and hit him where it hurts.

this is from mike jeffries a film director hope he has some clout and that the americans get the message
frm theturdz whos heart is breaking at the demise of this great club

well all i can say to this is we aint goin to get lahm, bale or a lot u have mentioned but there is no way any team will get aguero for 20 mill but yeah i wouldn't mind afew of them personally i would take cahill-15mill
aguero-30mill
saurez-20mill
mata-15mill
hernandez-12mill
sanchez-15-mill
total- 107mill
but would welcome just 2 if i had to
but the bottom line is we aint got that sort of money unless we have a reallly nice owner comes in but on the other hand is that what we really want as i want stability and would be happy to have an owner who ants to expand the stadium and give a bit every year for spending.

Should the takeover be completed before the Jan Transfer Window, Hodgson has targeted signing 2 wingers and a striker to add moe firepower to our squad. He also wants to sign Taye Taiwo to a pre contract as his contract ends in 2011

555555555555 Liverpool supporters STILL dreaming of a buyer.
I'm the guy that posted LAST YEAR that there would be no Saudi or UAE Arab touching you with a barge pole and 1 year later still not sold and bankrupcy a week away.
LOL

- - - - - - - -

It's "bankruptcy" actually. And if you really knew anything about the situation then you'd know that bankruptcy is an extremely unlikely scenario - the club IS profitable. .

The fact is, Liverpool FC are more than likely going to be taken over by RBS shortly. RBS will sell the club to one of the parties currently performing due diligence for a much lower amount than the £800m Hicks (who is the one dreaming of a buyer!) wants/ needs.

Why would an Arab touch the club with an asking price of £800m when they could wait a couple of weeks and snap it up for a bargain?

I bet we never see you on here again. .

The greek is a solid defender, i'm not saying he is awesome and has had some suspect games but for 1.5 mil he has been one of Rafa's better signings and is quite capable of doing a job for us, lets be fair we could have spent 30 mil on Rio lol.
Sammi was a fantastic signing a maybe the best of a generation but he has moved on, is too old and the time had passed, unfortunately we need to find the next Hypia as Carra is showing the same signs, too slow and having to resort to fowling due to lack of pace against young quick forwards.
Maybe he should play a Matthaus sweeper role to prolong his carrer, with baldy and Agger in front of him, allowing Agger to play a defensive midfield role when going forward as he can strike a ball! and skirtel and Carra forming the center partnership, Two proper full backs that can add width (WE HAVE NO WIDTH ROY), with Gerrard and Miereles pinging balls all over the shop in the center spreading play, Cole just of Torres, unless the whinger buggers off in jan or next season. And even add young Pachecco to learn from Torres or invest in an out and out goal machine, who hangs about all game ready to toe poke in all the scraps of the creative players.

Pull your socks up Fernando and stop crying, do what you are so great at and set LFC alight once again.

Forget Juan Mata I want us to sign Pablo Hernandez, impressed me alot last night against "the enemy" agree ED?

{Editor's Note: He is contracted until 2014 and would cost circa £15M which we don't have. Good player but not a realistic target unfortunately.}

Hyppia wanted didn't wanted to sit on da bench. He wanted 1st team action which was quite impossible with agger skrtel and carra in da bag. But benitez gave him an option as player plus coaching role. But he rejected that and went to bayern luverksen(spelling) to some playing time. Anyways like he said he'll be back in da near future for the coaching role.

Haven't seen Sami H play for a long time so can't comment on that but the general consensus of opinion seems to be that there is little to choose between Carra, Agger, Skyrtle and Kiryakos which makes the Greek a good value buy. It does not mean he is a great player and personally I think we need a top class central defender as well a few other positions.

If all our signings gave as good value for money as our cheap Greek we would be in a far better position than we are now.

CR"

If Benitez handed Hyypia the new contract he deserved we wouldn't even have to argue the point. Even at 36 he's still twice the player Kyrgiakos is.

Just found this article, think it makes interesting reading.

How Standard Chartered Can Rescue Its Disastrous Deal With Liverpool F.C.
By Jim Edwards | September 27, 2010

Pity poor Standard Chartered (STAN.L), the investment bank that paid £80 million to sponsor Liverpool F.C. At the time, the deal set a new benchmark for top-flight football sponsorships and StanChart's money was welcomed as a warchest for Liverpool to use for new players. Success seemed assured.

A year later, and the deal is looking like a disaster: The club is mired in debt; it's engaged in a civil war with American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett; the team crashed out of the League Cup to lowly Northampton Town F.C. and have won only six points from the first six games of the season: Technically, StanChart have hitched their flag to a club that's fighting relegation to the second rung of English professional football (although that fate remains unlikely).

Worse, fans have started selling protest shirts with "Standards Corrupted" on the chest and the bank's logo - two intertwined ropes - represented as snakes. American reporters' in-boxes are being flooded with Liverpool fans' email demanding the ouster of the club's owners:

How would you like it if a British "businessman" came over to the USA and destroyed the New York Yankees. Or the LA Lakers. Or the Washington Redskins?

None of this is StanChart's fault, of course; it's merely the sponsor. But the bank could execute a solution that might rescue its investment: It could help force Hicks and Gillett to sell the club at a loss.

Some background: Hicks and Gillett bought the club in 2007 with a £237 million loan from the Royal Bank of Scotland, and used the club itself as collateral to secure the note. That loan, plus interest and penalties, is now due. Hicks and Gillett would like to refinance it - or better yet sell the club to new owners at a premium. (The club was bought at the height of the asset bubble and is currently classified as a "toxic asset, " so selling it at a profit is highly unlikely.) RBS also knows that extra debt incurred either by the current owners refinancing or by new owners taking out a mortgage will only worsen its position and increase the likelihood of Liverpool going into "administration, " a sort of structured bankruptcy. (The English Premier League imposes a nine-point penalty on any club that does this; Portsmouth F.C. was relegated from the league as a result of that maneuver last year.) It would also increase the likelihood of RBS having to take possession of the club to recover its loan - and banks don't generally want to be in the business of sports franchise ownership.

The alternative is for StanChart to quietly encourage RBS to enforce an Oct. 6 deadline that - absent new funding from Hicks and Gillett - would allow the Scottish bank to take over the club and sell it at a loss on the value of the loans outstanding. All parties concerned would lose money on the deal, but they might lose less money than if they refloated the club on more loans.

If StanChart were feeling especially brave, it could suggest to RBS that Hicks and Gillett's ownership be divided into 10 tranches, and that each tranche be sold off separately in a sequence of share offerings to fans who wanted to own the club. (There's already a group of fans with banking counsel who want to do something like this, and other clubs such as F.C. Barcelona and Real Madrid are already owned by their fans.) That way, each offering would only need to raise £24 million or more from buyers before the bank could move to the next one. If more fans wanted to buy shares, then RBS could charge a premium on each tranche and actually make a profit on some parts of the defaulted loan or it could add an 11th and 12th tranche as demand required.

At the end of the day, such a scheme could transfer Liverpool into ownership that has the bottomless pockets necessary to run a club - its fans. RBS could get its money back and maybe even profit. StanChart could even handle the public/ private offering, and take a fee, and emerge as the bank that rescued the club. Everybody wins.

To the bloke who posted this- - ->
Hi Guys,
GREAT NEWS! Deal done. I have regularly posted on here over the last few
weeks that Richard Branson would be buying LFC.
I can confirm that this deal is 99% done. The MD of investments Ian Ackerley and Claire Gates who
is Virgin Moneys MD have completed due diligence and the sale is almost done. Announcment I am told will be before the derby.
The only sticking point is that Hicks is pushing for more $. Greedy * * , I believe the price to be £340m but Hicks is determind
to push the price up and squeeze Branson for more.
Hicks is furious with Broughton and has said "not a dime less than $600m (£380m)"
You heard it here first guys.
Open up the bar its time to celebrate!
Razor-Red

. . . . . . . mines a VIRGIN COLA! Lol :-)

Liverpool scouts watching Emil Larsen 19, Kim Aabech 27 & Lasse Rise 24. Cant say i have heard of the later two but Larsen is a Denmark U19 3 goals in 13 apps. I had been told by my work pal we where looking at Nicolai Jorensen of Leverkusen who is another Denmark U19 so maybe he was confused with this Larsen lad.
ED i Hope roy was looking at Suarez Tuesday, Babel is still highly rated in Holland do you think we could get Suarez for 18-20mil plus Babel if we do find some cash or is that wishful thinking?

BigBirdBilly {ed's note - Ajax need money, I doubt we would have to pay more than 18-20m in total for Suarez.}
