worst player debate...
seen
kujt, seen pennant, seen everything but Christian Ziege

now tho the other players and many more have all bin sheite , one can only look back at the german who was prepared to sit on his ass do no training and when on the pitch gave less than the away fans! whilst collecting 50k per week , for those of u who are too young, or have smoked too much green stuff to remember his horrible name it is Christian Ziege @ least rosentall was in a position to miss, traore, tried but failed, and sean dundee, well i recon that was just a fau pas on the manager, where as Christian Ziege was just a mercenary tw*t who took liverpool for every penny.

'Pool Fanatics:

Roy's not looking for any striking options as he likes to play a 4-4-2 with Torres and either (Kuyt, Babel, Ngog and even Jova if need be). Buying Remy is an investment to sell, but I truly believe that Babel and Ngog will mature well under Roy.

The only replacement will be with Mascherano for either Poulsen or Benega. Poulsen likes like the best bet because Roy has worked with him a while back.

This is a comment that must be said. People, even myself, love the fact that Arda Turan has been heavily linked to 'Pool, but in reality Roy may like him, but he's willing to give Pacheco a go as a backup along with Aquilani. Pacheco is young and raw and honestly I can't see him being anything less than a star in the making. He will prove his worth, because of his ruthlessness to attack the net, be creative enough with the ball upfield and make the necessary unselfish pass. Look for Pacheco to shine along with the existing team. Nothing has been mentioned of Nemeth this camp where he played fantastically in last years pre-season warm up games! Where is he Ed?

By the way 'Pool will still be moving Degen, Itanje and may be Babel. Mascherano money will be kept for the January transfer window as Insua looks set to stay on. Liverpool's team is better than any other's and should push for a top 2-3 finish. Wouldn't be suprised if the League is won!

05 Aug 2010 23:42:08
The worst ever liverpool signing has to be Jimmi Traore or Gabriel Palleta!!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 23:41:04
Regarding whoever takes us over. I would like us to have a lot of funds but have the same wage structure as we will be able to compete in the transfer market but will be getting players who want to wear the famous red shirt rather than for the money. Hopefully a takeover will happen before the end of the window so we can compete for the title.

05 Aug 2010 23:38:01
Can anyone shed some light on Ken Aquero(including ed),I don't get all this talk about him and crisps and how did this start,Thanks!!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 23:31:18
I would like to see maybe a few more signings before the transfer window closes. Possibly a left back, I think bridge, although I know we have aurellio I still think it would be a good buy. Also maybe a midfielder, Steven defour would be great if possible and a striking partner for torres, any Ideas?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 23:26:33
What the f**k are u thinking about ed.
Just noticed that "The Sun" are advertising there fantasy league on our site.

05 Aug 2010 23:19:19
To the guy asking which Ambani is linked to takeover:

If it turns out to be Ambani- It will be Mukesh. Not because hes wealthier, but because he has the Mumbai Indians franchise and major sporting interest.

The Ambani brothers have a history of well publicised fallouts and it would only ever be Mukesh who would pull the strings for any takeover.

I will try and update you Saturday when I next speak to the Mumbai Locals.

Worst Liverpool player: Andriy Voronin by a country mile, Ken Aguerro's alter ego.

Worst LFC signing.

Houllier signed some pretty dodgy French geezers. Hope Remy is the real deal!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:58:45
one of the greatest signings was Joe Louis...yes that one ...check it out if you can find it...The Brown Bomber,,SMF

______________BREAKING NEWS_________________
I have just seen Ken Aguero.He told me that he wants to retire at Red Lion FC where he is earning a perfect wage in his view at Twelve bags of crisps and two pints of Bulmers a week with a Yorkie bar per goal.


Any one else bored f these jokes?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:53:47
worst liverpool signing im sorry but it has to be David N'Gog for 1.5million from PSG did you see him tonight i mean sure he scored 1 but should have scored 5 and basic errors which really annoy me that he is supposedly our 2nd best striker at the club??

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:53:33
worst player robbie keane

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:51:52
poulson will be a liverpool player within 2 days,crouch will follow then probably parker,everyone needs to remember the home grown players rule,we wont be signing to many foreigners

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:49:09
sean dundee,worst player ever,i win

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:48:04
Worst LFC signing(s).

Can name several....

Sean Dundee
Torben Piechnik
Salif Diao
El Hadji Diouf
Julian Dicks
Paul Stewart
Itsvan Kozma
David Speedie
Mark Walters
Jimmy Carter
Jean Michel Ferri
Antonio Nunez

Probably Paul Stewart & Sean Dundee tied for the prestigious award of LFC's Worst Ever Player

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:47:15
05 Aug 2010 20:42:26
For those posting potential new players, IDIOTIC to have NO English players in there (esp given the new Premier League rules). EVEN WITHOUT NEW INVESTMENT, ROY HODGSON HAS ALREADY LOOKED TO BUY BRITISH PLAYERS.

Liverpool need to buy some local lads and new investment mean they can finally afford the good (and therefore expensive) players like Milner (£30m), Young (£25m), Bale (£25m), Parker (£10-15m), Carlton Cole (£10-15m), Cattermole (£10-15m), Shawcross (£10-15m).

Gareth Bale is welsh :L

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:44:58
Hi all...just a quick one.... What was with the chinese adverts on the pitch side during the game??

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:44:41
Sky Sports apparently saying that Huang has tonight made a formal offer to buy the club.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:43:01
Worst signing for Liverpool?
It's between Sean Dundee, Erik Meijer and Bernard Diomede.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:42:24
If tonight Europa league performance proved anything its that we have more than enough midfielders now in the squad, I dont think if we're working on a budget until a possible takeover that we need to buy any in midfield, even a left back with the likes of Aurelio and Insua (whilst still at the club) are not the priority, but a striker is definatly need, as much as N'gog is improving, we need another high calibre striker at the club to compliment Torres or to stand in when he is unavailable.

YNWA.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:39:12
Just with regards to a lot of posts about CIC and China being an opressed country and all that. Bear in mind that the Olympic games were last held there and I didnt see any countries pulling out of it because they were worried about competing in a place where humanitarian rights and all that are denied. How many people watched the olympics on television, thus supporting the decision to stage the competition there. Theres a lot of double standards where people are very critical of china and yet ignore other countries bad humanitarian rights records.

To whoever said

"Okay, to all those people who still want Remy, news flash: David Ngog is better. Nuff said."


All I can say is Remy must be really bad then!

05 Aug 2010 20:55:38
Gen this. Heard that when ghwang takes over the Reds will be sponsord by Gaydar and strip will be pink tight shirts and shorts.


To whoever wrote this, there is already a team on merseyside which fits this description. I think you're mistaking us for some one else.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:32:53
well i'm a liverpool fc fan from spain(so sorry if i don't write well) and i hope the team look like there:
Reina

Johnson Wilson Agger Fucile

Aqua Gerrad
Kuyt Turan

J. Cole

Torres(el nio)
Well is my first post, what do you think mates?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:29:49
ARDA TURAN played for Galatassary in the Europa league tonight. So he is cup tied, me thinks he is not on Roys hit list!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:26:38
"Err, African? Erm... China isn't in Africa dude, hence they're not black, have different eyes etc etc... Or have I missed something?!"

Yes, yes you have. If you'd care to wise up and check some of CIC's investment portfolio IN Africa and how it affects the native population you'd know to what I refer. However, if it's outside of where your next fix is coming from or the footy then it probably goes over your head.

Had to laugh at the post with the Vikings etc, you really missed my point and the lack of relevance was astonishing. Back to school soon eh sonny?

Who would ppl consider to be the worst purchase in Liverpool history?

Ed, whos yours?

Personally i think it has to be either Phil Babb (the guy who smashed his nuts off the post)

Antonio Nunez he needs no introduction 8mill and him for Micheal Owen we were robbed another s**t decision by Rafa.
appologise for the s**t spellings:
Djimi Traore
Salif Diao
Igor Biscan
Sean Dundee 2m in 1998 played 3 games
El Haj Diouf
Harry Kwell (injuries)
Dibrial Cisse

Thats my opinion


with most i do agree but not with kwelle he was class sorry mate

Worst Liverpool player - itsvan kozma, was meant to be the hungarian john barnes!! - the Mole.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:20:58
A little concerned, like many others i believe Dani Pacheco to be a huge prospect for LFC. I went onto the online club shop today attempting to buy jerseys for my 2 kids with 47 Pacheco on them. In some sizes and styles his name/ number weren't listed as available. In those that were available the moment you select his jersey it comes up with an error. You could get every player but him, that includes Mascherano and the likes of Ince, Amoo.

I am reading too much into this?? If anyone knows anyone working in the club shop, could you ask them to sort the site if its a bug

ChrisE



He will now be cup tied in europe so i'm sure he's not going anywhere, i do believe he is in Roys plans

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:19:32
Good performance from the lads tonight was impressed by everyone, Kelly looks more than capable of stepping up in a big way this season, it was also good to see Pacheco play 90 mins and thought the new boys looked like they're fitting in nicely, Bring on Arsenal.

Worst Liverpool signing for me has to be Mark Gonzales after waiting for him for so long with all the work permit rubbish and then finally arrived with high expectations only to dissapoint everyone.

One more point I dont know why so many people have Remy down to be a Liverpool player next year, I can't see it happening and personally don't think he would have any more to offer us than N'Gog.

"05 Aug 2010 20:47:11
to the clown posting the comments concerning the takeover saying that he would be ashamed if the cic bought our club and that the chinese are totalitarian society blaa blaa blaa .....for f*ck sake dude this is a football runours site not a political forum ....get a grip ....there been no one more oppressive than us the west ...you know like invading foreign countrys based on a lie , you know the one with lots of oil.....sound familiar........are sure you are not a city fan and bit concerned you wont be the richest club anymore hehehehehehehe lmao"

I was not the one who brought in to play contemporary political situations, the original post served to do that. By suggesting that Chelski amongst others were tainted by the involvement of the owners was a touch hypocritical when our (possibly) prospective owners would be far worse than Abramovich. Objectivity was suffering a touch. I agree with the Iraq points, however neither of the two major states involved in that are interested in purchasing sporting institutions and doesn't draw comparison, thus the argument is flawed irrelevant in this instance.

BTW I'm not a City fan (although I wish them well purely because it will upset the fake Mancs in red).

I DO care about how our club is perceived on the wider stage, thus my concerns re. CIC. If you'd not noticed our club is very much based around a community ethos, one of honesty and morality (as far as can be expected in football) and I don't want to see it tainted. If all you can see is the money then I really don't want to hear, and certainly cannot respect, your opinions. Go put your blue Chelski back on.

Rant over.

05 Aug 2010 22:18:30
to ChrisE:

Liverpool didnt have any choice over the nunez deal as he was thrown in as part of the deal which saw Owen move to Madrid.

Moving on from that, although we played much lesser opposition tonight i would really like to see more of kelly and pacheco as they both look as though they could do a great job in the starting XI for us. Cole and Jovanovic looked bright too. Another striker and the added quality from those that missed out tonight I predict a good season for Roy's men... YNWA

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:16:37
All the players we are meant to be buying joe cole isnt even in the starting line up for some people,90k a wk dont think he will sit on the bench!!! All we need is a striker, left winger, left back, & if masch goes then another holding midfielder, what do you think ed? PS its nice to see a manager smile when we score.

stevo

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:15:16
I know we only played against a lesser team tonight but we looked very good. As the saying goes 'You can only beat whats put infront of you'. This was without Torres, Kuyt, Reina, Babel, Agger, ETC. I thought Cole looked brilliant and his instant partnership with Gerrard looking great we could be on for a great season!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:14:19
weve got a trillion,chelseas got a billion,blackpool have a million,and everton have a brazillian...oops no they havent hes gone back to city..they havent got a pot to piss in.....come on Mr Hodgson me old china..SMF

So can all these deluded fans stop with the Kenny W, or the syrian to takeover at Liverpool.

Lets wait for the Chairman "love him or loath him" to tell us what is happening. He has said in recent times that all will be kept private until the deal is done.

Kenny was supposed to be backed by CIC, they have today denied any involvement in the deal to buy Liverpool, so were does that leave us, while believing what Kenny and Co are claiming!

The Syrian has been claiming things regarding liverpool takeover details for several months , nothing has ever come off his claims!

I have supported this great team for more than 40 years , and I would love to believe that a mega rich individual or group are ready to take over, and rid us of these American leaches. But for now I will wait and see and await the Club making an announcement.
Its amazing we spend months moaning about Liverpool conducting all there business in the public view, "Stating its not the Liverpool way", then someone in the press starts a hslf baked story about the takeover, and suddenly all these fans have inside information about this person or that person leading the takeover..

LETS JUST WAIT AND PRAY FOR THE CHANGES TO COME!!

05 Aug 2010 22:12:09
This thing with the worst Liverpool player has got me going . It has to be without doubt andriy voronin.
No first touch
Can't hold the ball up
Can't pass a ball
Can't shoot can't score
Can't do s@&t

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:11:37
worst ever liverpool signings?


1) Lucas
2) Dundee
3) Josemi

Lucas should not be allowed on the bench - let alone starting XI.

The worst player I have seen in a red shirt must be Nicky Tanner. He couldn't trap a bag of cement.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 22:03:47
worst signing ever has to be £20 mil for a certain robbie keane who then went only a few months later for around £12 mil

05 Aug 2010 22:02:12
I take it you're not a paid up member of Amnesty International? You naive deluded person. The Chinese regime is near totalitarian, oppressive and with a diabolical human rights record that Robert Mugabe could only dream of. A history of political censorship, almost random imprisonment and total paranoia personifies your chosen investor. If you're going to post at least have the first idea of the subject to which you refer.

Personally I'd be appalled if we accepted a bid that's got anything to do with CIC. Anyone who knows the slightest thing about African current affairs can tell you about their insidious form of corporate sovereign imperialism. For them to have their bloodstained hands on my beloved LFC would be too much to bear. At least the colour of our shirts would hide the bloodstains, eh?

Yeah but the west's history isn't exactly squeaky clean with slavery the persecution Black's, Gay's and Jew's? And an illegal war for oil based on a lie come on get really they are just as bad as we were!

Re the following post:

INDIAN BID UPDATE:

representatives of the so far secret Indian interested party were together tonight in Bombay where it is alleged in the conference suite of the Marriott a video conference was being conducted....

Sources couldnt be sure but are 50/ 50 on whether the face on the screen was Purslow....
However- what was more interesting is - the venue was booked out for 4 hours and during a comfort break, the sources confirmed that there was a DETAILED presentation and all sorts of "graphs and charts with projected revenue were left on a powerpoint and also they saw slides of a stadium projection.

THESE BOYS ARE SERIOUS - and if you do your research, you will see that India is primed for a footballing interest. Wealth wise, If it is Ambani then we will be in very decent hands.

Hope to have more by Saturday....

GARRY CARTER YNWA***

Garry, which of the "Ambani" brother(s) is being touted or mooted as possible/prospective purchasers? Is it Mukesh (older and wealthier), or Anil?

Given that Joe Cole was given the no. 10 shirt this season, the no. 7 shirt is still vacant which makes you wonder.......big signing still to come to take this shirt! But who do you think this will be??

 

 

05 Aug 2010 21:36:31
--------------Sick of this not getting on------------
The takeover is close.Liverpool will sign a striker , a centre midfielder and a winger plus replacing any players that leave.
Striker:Remy or Aguero.Possibly Connor Wickham.
Winger:Wright-Phillips or Arda Turan.
Centre Midfielder:Defour or Poulsen.

Maxi may leave but he would be replaced by Wright-Phillips.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 21:36:26
I have now seen loads of teams posted on here which are going to be the starting 11 most of which dont even include jovanovic.

Im going to stick my head out here but based on what ive seen jovanovic I think will be one of our best players this year.

What you think ed??

 

 

05 Aug 2010 21:30:05
Worst purchase in LFC history...well,two names:Thomas Hicks and George Gillett (whether you view that as purchases or not is up to ye,mates).
Even the most costliest of Djimi Traore howlers pales in comparison to the damage G&H have caused LFC.Whatever Traore,Diao,Diouf did wrong,G&H have done a million times worst.

These are cold hard facts which are there for all to see.So,if I had it my way,I'd ship them G&H out immediately the transfer window opens,with the Kalahari (Everton) sure to snap them up.

So come on lets all be friends..theve got £3.6 trillion..

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:57:27
So this all begs the question... Why were all our enemys (the chavski and manure media engines) so against Rafa... answers simple... HE posed a massive threat.. so they wanted him out by trying to turn the fans against him.... Which i'm proud to say (to the majority) NEVER WORKED!


You are so wrong mate,you could not be any more wrong,i would say the vast majority of Utd,chelsea,Arsenal said and i Quote them "as long as Rafa is in charge, yee will never win the league"
Think off all the good players he let go and especially strikers...

Ferri was Houlliers first signing but I remember at the time rumours were saying that he was Houlliers eyes in the dressing room, the likes of Ince were actually a bad influence and Houllier 'apparently' used Ferri for this purpose, he was moved on within his first season...

For whats it worth, spoke with a Saudi Embassy employee in Dublin tonight. Talking about business etc. Asked him if there was any truth in the rumours about a bid coming out of Saudi - he said there is but it is not a cash bid, it will be based on borrowings and at the moment the finance is not in place.

For those posting potential new players, IDIOTIC to have NO English players in there (esp given the new Premier League rules). EVEN WITHOUT NEW INVESTMENT, ROY HODGSON HAS ALREADY LOOKED TO BUY BRITISH PLAYERS.

Liverpool need to buy some local lads and new investment mean they can finally afford the good (and therefore expensive) players like Milner (£30m), Young (£25m), Bale (£25m), Parker (£10-15m), Carlton Cole (£10-15m), Cattermole (£10-15m), Shawcross (£10-15m).

Reina

Torres Remy

Subs:Cavaleri,Carragher,Aurelio,Jovanovic,Aqua,Ngog
Kuyt/Maxi

mash won't be goin due to balotelli deal fallin through due to his high wage demand and remy really wants to cum to liverpool

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:40:18
I agree with the guy who was defending kuyt. True he is not the most skilled player on the park but his determination and work rate make him almost indispensable. That is why kuyt played in every game for the Netherlands during the world cup and more skilled players (like Elia and babel) sat and watched him. I think we should expect to see him in any starting lineup for this year unless a takeover happens and major changes are made this window.

I take it you're not a paid up member of Amnesty International? You naive deluded person. The Chinese regime is near totalitarian, oppressive and with a diabolical human rights record that Robert Mugabe could only dream of. A history of political censorship, almost random imprisonment and total paranoia personifies your chosen investor. If you're going to post at least have the first idea of the subject to which you refer.

Personally I'd be appalled if we accepted a bid that's got anything to do with CIC. Anyone who knows the slightest thing about African current affairs can tell you about their insidious form of corporate sovereign imperialism. For them to have their bloodstained hands on my beloved LFC would be too much to bear. At least the colour of our shirts would hide the bloodstains, eh?


Err, African? Erm... China isn't in Africa dude, hence they're not black, have different eyes etc etc... Or have I missed something?!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:26:48
Who would ppl consider to be the worst purchase in Liverpool history?

definitely voronin
complete waste of the number 10 shirt

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:25:12
Ok, this isn't a rumour, more an observation of the day's events. SSN has announced that in an interview for the Financial Times a 'spokesman' for CIC has said that they know nothing of the proposed investment. I know rumours are rife and lots of porky pies have probably been put forward by many claiming to have insider info, but The Times today carried the story on it's front page along with main image... I might expect it from the S*n (aunts) or other tabloids, I just can't see The Times running a story that has no concrete foundations.

Any thoughts please ed? Or other followers of the most successful club in the country?

Cheers, DHK

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:23:20
A little concerned, like many others i believe Dani Pacheco to be a huge prospect for LFC. I went onto the online club shop today attempting to buy jerseys for my 2 kids with 47 Pacheco on them. In some sizes and styles his name/number weren't listed as available. In those that were available the moment you select his jersey it comes up with an error. You could get every player but him, that includes Mascherano and the likes of Ince, Amoo.

I am reading too much into this?? If anyone knows anyone working in the club shop, could you ask them to sort the site if its a bug

Forget neymar, lukaku and the likes of them. If we want a top young striker we should go in for Connor wickham now before another club picks him up. Top young player, English, just 17 years of age. Would be a great addition to the current squad and the future. Is a massive fan of lfc and would be proud to wear the red shirt. 8-10mil should do it. Come on Roy. Go get him

 

 

05 Aug 2010 20:16:04
Hey ed! Hope you are doing great.
Who do ya think if once the takeover bid is done and with massive investment for transfers will LFC buy?
These are the players in mind:

LB-Wayne Bridge,Gareth Bale,Taye Taiwo,Aly Cissokho
CB-Micah Richards,Nedum Onuoha,Mamadou Sakho,David Luiz
RM-,James Milner,Elijaro Elia,Marko Marin
LM-Ashley Young,Steven Jovetic,Arda Turan
CM-Ever Banega,Steven Defour,Eden Hazard,Yoann Gourcuff
ST-Kun Aguero,Edin Dzeko,Klaas Jan Huntelaar,Neymar,
Robinho

It'll be mouthwatering with this squad:

--------------Reina
Johnson--Richards--Agger--Bale
Milner--Gerrard--Banega--Young
--------Aguero---Torres

If the takeover doesn't happen RH will sign the following.

CONNOR WICKHAM: Confessed Liverpool fan, has publicly stated that Torres is one of his heroes. Roy would only have bid a few million and Connor'd be begging to leave to line up alongside Torres.

CHRISTIAN POULSON: Erm . . . I don't know what this mediocre pensioner offer Liverpool. Finger-crossed this deal will somehow collapse.

ARDA TURAN: Supposedly also a fan. Great on the wings. Good prospect.

BRAD JONES: Same as Poulson (sp?), basically an awful signing if it happens, since we have a number of young English keepers waiting to prove themselves in the reserves.

If we're lucky one or two more could be added but they're the 4 most likely.

Ed, whos yours?

Personally i think it has to be either Phil Babb (the guy who smashed his nuts off the post)

Antonio Nunez he needs no introduction 8mill and him for Micheal Owen we were robbed another s**t decision by Rafa.
appologise for the s**t spellings:
Djimi Traore
Salif Diao
Igor Biscan
Sean Dundee 2m in 1998 played 3 games
El Haj Diouf
Harry Kwell (injuries)
Dibrial Cisse

Thats my opinion

INDIAN BID UPDATE:

representatives of the so far secret Indian interested party were together tonight in Bombay where it is alleged in the conference suite of the Marriott a video conference was being conducted....

Sources couldnt be sure but are 50/50 on whether the face on the screen was Purslow....
However- what was more interesting is - the venue was booked out for 4 hours and during a comfort break, the sources confirmed that there was a DETAILED presentation and all sorts of "graphs and charts with projected revenue were left on a powerpoint and also they saw slides of a stadium projection.

THESE BOYS ARE SERIOUS - and if you do your research, you will see that India is primed for a footballing interest. Wealth wise, If it is Ambani then we will be in very decent hands.

Hope to have more by Saturday....

for the editor (you speak sense and great site by the way). Part rumour/ part my thoughts this.

Have you heard anything on the grapevine regarding the purchase of a striker. I believe that we need not one but two. I am realistic to know that at best we will only get one. Could Remy be the one? There are reports he will be talking to 3 prem clubs within the next week. The first was Stoke today.

I am taking the ownership saga with a pinch of salt. Until the new owners are formally announced we are all guessing. With the two dopes we currently have as owners, I expect this to drag on for a while yet.

It may explain why we are making moves to sign Poulsen, in preference to Defour, for example (a cheaper option which frees up additional funds for the purchase of a striker given limited funds at present).

05 Aug 2010 19:35:03
apparently the Huang bid is dead, well according to most newspapers and news channels.

Now, i'm no expert but in the original story didn't it say that Huang was offering to buy the debt, which isn't really bidding for something, then the plan was that eventually he'd shimmy the owners out of Anfield. Now, i'm probably wrong (i didn't pass with flying colours in Business in school) but he stated that he didn't BID, and according to the first rumours his intention wasn't to technically bid for the club.

plus the 'source' in this story said he was backed by a group of investors in the Far East, that doesn't necceserally mean China.

You can take that with a grain of salt, cos its probably wrong.

I dont think Elia is any good he had a OK world cup and had no affect on any games all he really has is pace

Hi everyone, i am a first time poster on this liverpool site which i have to say is a great move by ed.

I'm from india and a huge LFC fan. I've heard a lot of rumours about mukesh ambani and subrata roy apperently intrested in lfc. Currently though the media back here hasn't reported anything on this but the thing that i want to say is that ambani if he does become the new owner would be a massive boost for the club. You wouldn't believe the market possibilites for lfc here as the fanbase is huge. Also ambani is the owner of the RICHEST ipl team whose spending powers are on a parallel level to man city, possibly higher. Subrata roy though i think will be less of a possiblity.

And i've read many posts regarding the 'scouse only for kop' propoganda and i'm glad that many red fans do not want to alienate fans like us. I may live many a miles away but the passion for the club will always remain in my heart. Cheers people

Has any1 heard anything about Kenny Huang and the takeover of Liverpool ?


YNWA


A source close to CIC have told the Financial Times that CIC are not interested in LFC.
He also said that CIC would not invest in such a risky buisness as LFC.
He also said that CIC did not even know who Kenny Huang was.

For me the above qoute's could all be lie's!

If LFC was such a risky buisness then why are there reportedly been up to 6 bids?

And the best quote here is CIC don't even know who Kenny Huang is?
How do they not know who he is? He has an office in Bejing.
He was the 1st Chinese national to work on Wall Street.
Last but no means least he own's the Chinese National Basketball League (which he probably needed the state's permission to open)

I think it's denials all the way now from everyone till a deal is done. Wheither it's CIC who gets LFC or not.

So this all begs the question... Why were all our enemys (the chavski and manure media engines) so against Rafa... answers simple... HE posed a massive threat.. so they wanted him out by trying to turn the fans against him.... Which i'm proud to say (to the majority) NEVER WORKED!



But they never made him make the most rediculous substitutions, they never insisted he stuck with zonal marking on set pieces, they never forced him to sign, Dosena, Degan, Voronin, Kroncamp, Josemi etc, etc!!

Sorry, i do not agree with your post at all, it was time for a change. YNWA

 

 

05 Aug 2010 15:59:07
I do belive to some degree that a deal may have already been done with regards to a takeover. But it's the reasons I have a problem with. If it is the case that Mr Benitez was moved out and replaced with Mr Hodgson, then the reason for this is as follows....
With an unlimited transfer kitty available for probably two weeks before the end of the transfer market, who would you rather have to spend it? Would you have Mr Benitez, who would happily spend a fortune on players that just don't either have the talent or simply do not fit with LFC. Or would you rather have Mr Hodgson, who has business acumin and footballing knowledge at his disposal.
I for one would rather have Mr Hodgson in charge of bringing in talented players who will fill the gaps in our shattered team of last season.
If a deal has already been done, then the targets are already aware of interest and have been waiting in the wings for some time. I can't wait for this to all be unveiled and for LFC to stand at the top of the tree where we belong.
YNWA!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 15:59:01
(plz post, would like to make a valid and forgotten point)
What many people have forgotten is that our current squad finished second 2 years ago and since then we have lost (first team players), Alonso, Hypia and Arbeloa. These have been replaced by Johnson, Aquilani, Rodriguez, skrtel, Jovanovich and Cole. Has the line-up really got weaker ? 4-3-3 is best suited formation for our squad.

GK - Reina
RB - Johnson
RCB - Carragher
LCB - Agger
LB - Aurelio
CDM - Mascherano (or Shelvey if Masch is sold)
RAM - Gerrard
LAM - Cole
RW - Rodriguez
ST - Torres
LW - Jovanovich

Bench - Gulacsi(GK), Skrtel(DEF), Wilson(DEF), Aquilani(AM), Lucas(DM), Babel(LW/RW) and Kuyt(ST).

I know shelvey is only 18 but how old was fabregas when he burst onto the Arsenal XI, how old was Owen and Fowler when they burst into our very own XI ? Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi ... If he is class, which he clearly is, he will cope. The England team will never improve if we leave out class players like him.

We also have young talents like, Kelly, Darby, Mavinga, Ayala, Amoo, Spearing, Sterling, Dalle Valle, Pacheco, N'Gog etc. Our squad will finish in the top 4 with Roy at the helm.

Just awful mate, where did you come up with that one?

Most people will agree that the great Carragher will not likely keep up with the pace this season.

Insua is not good enough, unless he finds some pace and shows the potential he once had.

But why, really why, would you want to have Poulson, Flamini & Hleb all in the same midfield?

Our current midfielders are better

The reported bids to buy liverpool from yahya kirdi and cic fronted by kenny huang will NOT happen.Firstly kirdi is just a puppet of H&G to raise the price of liverpool fc and to get the deal pushed through as quickly as possible. Secondly CIC are the investment branch of the chinese goverment and invest billions in different business ventures i.e. engineering projects , oil refineries and redevelopment and upgrading of rural china ,and to invest in liverpool fc is not in portfolio and never will .To do so would reap no benefits for cic and is a non-starter.Thirdly rhone group is also a non starter and any deal would be dead in the water from day one as the dollar is very weak now and they dont have the financial muscle to pull any deal off.That leaves us with the middle east for many possible deal .So please lads let not get carried away with ourselves bragging that we will be a super rich club with many millions to spend in each transfer window.
so lets be quietly confident and pray something will happen soon.Lastly please stop the SWP rumours on the your possible transfer targets lists he's bloody rubbish.

05 Aug 2010 15:29:09
I agree that it's one thing for our youngsters to look good in pre-season and another to sustain that over a Premiership campaign.

I don't think we really need an awful lot to add to the first-team, though.

I definitely think we need a striker to work alongside Torres, or cover for him when he's injured. N'Gog will certainly get chances over the season, but I'd like to see someone with a little more of a proven pedigree - Aguero seems to be the most popular choice with the majority of the fans and I'd love to see him at Anfield.

On the wing, I think Turan could more than do a job for us, plus he's desperate to play for us - so, he's already endeared himself to the fans. I think he's definitely worth a shot - young, talented and quick. Plus, he wouldn't break the bank. Ashley Young would be a great addition too, but I suspect that - if Villa rate Milner at £30M - they'll want serious money for him, certainly more than £20M.

At left-back - well, it's anyones guess. I actually think it'd be great if Aurelio could stay fit, but that's asking too much.

Maschies replacement looks likely to be Poulsen and I think he's a good player - experienced and cultured. I think he'd do very well in that position. Ever Banega is a fantastic talent too, but he strikes me as a little temperamental - is this why so many people think he'd be available for as little as £8M?. I also think Valencia would be very, very unlikely to risk losing any more of their first-team after Villa and Silva both left. Same goes for Mata.

I definitely don't think we'd need to spend anywhere near the supposed £150M budget that Huang is looking to offer. I think it'd be pretty good to see some cash being invested in younger players like Shelvey and Wilson. Perhaps the likes of Khrin?

I UNDERSTAND TO SPEAKING TO SOURCES IN CHINA A DEAL IS POSSIBLE, BUT FOR AMERICAN OWNERS TO BE BRINGING THIRD COMPANYS IN TO THE BIDING FOR THEM TO INFLATE PRICE

 

 

05 Aug 2010 15:13:06
Christian Poulson to Liverpool for a price of around 6 Million and Javier Mascherano to leave for around 25 million. Shaun Wright-Phillips in for 7 Million with the remaining budget from that deal and the Albert Riera deal to go on another striker.

There are alot of rumours and speculation flying around as to who the next owner(s) of LFC will be.
I personally feel, out of the two main conteners in the running, we should not go for a H&G lookalike who will clearly build us up with the same false promises that the trigger happy, gung ho approach, all mouth no trousers yanks did.
That leaves us with only one viable option. If the chinese government investment arm wishes to inject money into the club, be it for investment purposes or not (obviously it will be, no-one will just give money away!). Then who are we to argue. The money is there and genuine, all $332 billion of it. It is not russian blood money, it is not based on inherited, oil fueled back handers, and it is not borrowed on behalf of a useless half brained US version of Bill and Ben.
I believe that only good can come from this imminent takeover bid. Transfer funds will be available straight away to the tune of as much as RH feels he needs. Debts that the chuckle brothers have run up would be payed off. (When I say payed off I mean transfered to an investor rather than a bank.)
I don't think RH is the kind of person who would buy players either just for the sake of it, or for over inflated prices. Of course certain teams would see this as an opportunity to charge over the odds for any targets RH may have in mind. As I say, I don't think this would phase him one bit. The guy has obviously got his head screwed on as it proved with the capture of Joe Cole on a free.
The future's bright, the future's red and the future is title No 19 coming to anfield in 2011.

Just up on FT website

Chinese fans may lament the low calibre of their domestic men's football teams, but that does not mean the Chinese government would consider buying debt-laden Liverpool Football Club.
A spokesperson for China Investment Corp, the country's main sovereign wealth fund, told the Financial Times on Thursday they had never heard of a plan to buy Liverpool or of Kenneth Huang, the man widely reported to be fronting a Chinese bid to buy the English Premier League club.
UK media have reported that Mr Huang, owner of a small sports marketing company with an office in Beijing, is bidding for the club with backing from CIC.
But Mr Huang himself issued a statement on Wednesday night saying that although he has registered interest in investing in Liverpool, he has not made a formal bid.
"There has been much speculation and commentary from a wide array of people, many of whom have little knowledge of the facts," Mr Huang said.
A person who has worked closely with CIC said there was "no way" the fund would get involved in such a high-profile, symbolic and potentially risky deal.
"Next they'll say CIC is going to buy Playboy," this person said.
A person close to Mr Huang told the Financial Times on Monday that his bid was backed by a "sovereign wealth fund from the Far East" but declined to name the fund.
There had been no suggestion internally at Liverpool that CIC was involved in Mr Huang's bid, another person close to the situation said.
Portrayed in the UK press as a Chinese billionaire tycoon, Mr Huang runs QSL Sports Limited, a sports marketing company that is trying to develop a new basketball league in China and promote Little League (youth) baseball in a country where most people know nothing about the sport.
QSL's website says the company is based out of Hong Kong and located at a prestigious address. However, when the Financial Times visited the office there was no sign of QSL and the management company of the building said no company by that name rented an office there.
A person who answered the phone at QSL in Hong Kong at first said the company was still at the address listed on the website, but when told that the management company of the building had denied this, then said the company had moved and its new address was a secret.
At QSL's small office in central Beijing, company employees were still unpacking boxes having recently moved from a much smaller office. A staff member said the company employed around 15 people in Beijing but he had not heard about a plan to buy Liverpool FC.
After repeated questions to Mr Huang's spokeswoman, the office addresses were removed from QSL's website on Thursday afternoon.
An official biography of Mr Huang says he is an investor in a Chinese basketball team and in 1988 became the first Chinese college graduate from mainland China to work at the New York Stock Exchange, where he "started his career in public relations".
He also founded an investment company called Rocket Capital with Leslie Alexander, owner of the Houston Rockets basketball team, and has made a number of investments in Chinese companies. Mr Huang's spokeswoman could not confirm whether he was still involved with Rocket Capital.

biggest rumour going is liverpool will have 150 million to spend if takeover goes ahead befor deadline day realistic targets that roy hodgson will go for will be.

BRAD JONES..reports are that the middlesboro keeper will be signed as back up to reina as the australian born keeper qualifys as home grown expect cavaliera to be sold.

MICHA RICHARDS man city full back can allso play central and is on way out of city this deal whould allow degan and kyriagos to be offloaded.

PHILIP LAHM with money in place this could be the answer to are leftback spot insua might have to lower his wage demands and go or find himself in reserves for season as not part of 25.

JAMES MILNER self confessed liverpool fan has secretly been holding out from man city in the hope liverpool come in for him to fill rightside if he arrives rodriguez or kuyt will go.

JACK RODWELL this is a tough one for obvious reasons but if the offer is big time i whould love to see him and stevie g side by side.

ASHLEY YOUNG again a player roy will go for to fill left side with jovanivic as back up.

CONNER WICKHAM biggest young star out there is going to be massive and roy has allready asked for funds to by this kid

SERGIO AGUERO this is the guy roy wants to act as back up cover for torres

and last but not least JAVIER MASCHARANO no replacement has been signed as he is going nowhere
can see the possibilities at anfield and the signing of aguero will keep him

i work in the anfield office and these are all past or present rumours of roys transfer target list

To the Mr DRX. You wrote your post very nicely, it is of course however utter ball ox. One sentence in your posting gave it all away. You stated "Both bidders, via Barcap, engaged the company I work for to assess the books for them. That's what I've been doing for the last four months." This is utter ball ox. Professionally you would not be able to act for both bidders. Reality Red

to the guy who said :Hi ED I was wondering if you could tell me what happened or is happening to Andrea Dossena, I thought he was quite good and is better than Insua and Aurelio. Thanks
your clearly not a lfc fan considering he left last season but i cant remember the price and he was s**t

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:34:49
A Liverpool side to win the league with these additions:

Left Back – Fabio Coentrao/Gareth Bale
Midfield – Lee Cattermole, Steven Defour, Mesut Ozil, Keisuke Honda (the new Beckham) [would love James Milner but he's Citeh bound]
Wing – Ashley Young
Striker – Kun Aguero, Conor Wickman

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:33:17
(ED I'll know if your part of this if you don't print this.)

In reply to the person who said this....

05 Aug 2010 12:03:02
To the person who said Bale would sign for Liverpool.
He is a Tottenham Hotspur god and in my view in the top 5 left midfielders in the world. Redknapp would never let him go even for 25 million.

I would like to share some first hand infomation with you all.. On recommendation of the youth team coach rafa was asked to watch this player and walcot (many of you know this second bit) but what you didn't know was that it was Bale mainly that was scouted as (and I'll quote the exact words the same coach told me at the time) "He (bale) will become the best LB in the word in the future, of that I've no doubt!" and rafa agreed(or at least that he would defiantly make the grade! But our old friend "parry" refused to sanction anything more than 700k for the player even though Southampton were asking for only 3m(this may of been negotiated down a bit).... we all know what happened to with walcot.. parry only offering 5m.. and refusing to budge....

Moving on to my next point.. there's also there's the small detail of david villa for 15m before the euro's which parry would not pay as believed price was overinflated and told rafa he would buy him after the euros (to which his value shot up to 40m) so parry attempted to appease rafa but buying another (in the hole)second striker to play behind torres.. Robbie Keane... And we all knew (well those not brain washed by the sun) how rafa felt about by all this.. by making it clear to everyone (with common sense) by not playing him and selling him quickly (showing the fans he was not his buy)... (something else the sun turned around to make rafa look bad to all the fans)....

So this all begs the question... Why were all our enemys (the chavski and manure media engines) so against Rafa... answers simple... HE posed a massive threat.. so they wanted him out by trying to turn the fans against him.... Which i'm proud to say (to the majority) NEVER WORKED!

Just think upon this... Where's our positional problems.. well we all disagree to at least a small point here.. but i'd love to see someone argue that we would of had a worse team and would not of at least one the league AT LEAST once.. with pushing gerrard back to his natural CM position to let villa play in the hole, with bale at left back and walcott a fast pacey winger for both wings (who i'll agree hasn;'t made the grade so far but would still of been a great option for us.. added to these fact's 1)he may of reached his potential with us as may not of had the injury problems that have stopped this potential 2) would of been playing far more with us as was needed (potential reaching again) 3) even now is better than his replaceable (Babel) 4) and i#ll say this in bold "IS AND ALWAYS WAS A LIVERPOOL FAN") These are the only ones i know of.. and yet they may be more... and were the reason parry was ousted....

SO here lies the problem that should worry all Liverpool fans... I Strongly believe that whoever is buying the club has already done so.... (even if not on paper yet so as to not have to announce it) and they were the person(s) that removed Rafa.. this delay and media circus was designed to so the blame would go to the old owners.. all this is pretty obvious... (why sack rafa when the owners H&G knew that if parry had done his job properly they would of made a fortune.. he in place upped the price if even just a small bit.. why take a cut in there profits just before selling (rafa's pay off) to replace with a unproven (at the top level manager).. simple.. because this was part of the deal to the sale of the club.. remember the first task on any new owners is to win over the fans... and after my rant.. the point.. Why sack rafa... to me there seems only one reason.. there won't be that much of a transfer kitty each year... which suits our new manager... rather than having a spanish one who makes it clear to the fans the club won't back him..... maybe i#'m wrong..... AND I REALLY HOPE I AM.....

Anyone remember the last home game of last season? What language was our sponsor written in? Yes, you guessed it Chinese.
From the official website at the time: "Chinese messages will be displayed during the match on the perimeter advertising boardings and in the Carlsberg Lounge at Anfield a Chinese competition winner will present a trophy to the "Man of the Match" after the final whistle."
And now the Chinese government are backing the Huang bid. Coincidence? Who knows.

Goocha

The reason for the Chinese writing that day was because of the Shanghi expo. Liverpool are twinned with Shanghi.

to the person who said do you really want to be owned by china etc with there human rights record and so on,
i remember this when SHINAWATRA come in for us and the left wing lesbian student brigade started shouting about human rights and look at what happened he bought city and the rest is history, we missed the boat, and ended up with those two conmen,
i am not concerned about chinese politics in the least, and as long as my beloved liverpool fc prosper i couldnt care less whats happening over there,no one in china or even london was concerned when thatcher raped and tried to kill of the city of liverpool and the mining industry, we were left swinging, i could not care less if the devil himself owned liverpool as long as they play fair by us fans and do a good job politics should not be an issue,

James Milner will play for Liverpool this season.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:23:28
The Jones bid is a big mistake. This guy is just plain awful, hopefully we don't get him.

Arda Turan in soon on Kenny Dalglish's recommendation and hopefully Steven Defour, who Hodgson rates highly, joins him. These two would replace two of these three (Babel, Kuyt, Maxi) in the squad.

Also, with the Masch money we should make a bid for Milner. He does not want to join City (has heard from the English players in the side how awful Mancini is and wants no part of that), but would jump at the chance to join Liverpool. Gerrard, Cole, and Milner all in the same midfield would be fantastic.

We need to make these transfers soon and not wait for the takeover, which there are no guarantees of. The sooner we get these players in and familiarizing themselves to the club, the better.

So far we know that H & G were incapable of reducing their debt within the deadline set by the banks and accordingly were forced to place the sales process in the hands of an independent chairman or face enforcement proceedings. Today's comments from Kirdi's PR representatives indicate that H & G have continued to try and find a buyer in parallel to Broughton's process. This places Broughton and the banks in a delicate situation. If Broughton is ready to do a deal at £350m yet H & G introduce Kidri willing to pay £400m (the figures are illustrative) then the bank needs to consider this offer very carefully. If they ignore it without good reason the bank runs the risk of being sued by H & G for selling at £350m. H & G will have been kept abreast of the offers received in the Broughton process and will be able to use this to ask Kidri to offer a sum higher than the highest bidder in the Broughton process. The bank will feel compelled to consider Kidri's offer notwithstanding that he has not participated in the Broughton process. From Broughton's perspective he will need to assess the seriousness of Kidri's bid. If Broughton believes it's a serious bid he has two options either he does a swift deal with Kidri or alternatively asks the highest bidder in the Broughton process to match Kidri's offer. Given that one of H or G is reported to have a relationship with Kidri, I would not be surprised if Kidri is doing H & G's bidding to force Broughton to squeezes a higher price from the Broughton process bidders.

Please everybody lets not forget it is one thing looking good against weaker teams in pre season friendlies and another to be comfortable against the likes of Arse, Chelski etc. I am all for giving the youngsters a chance which i am sure Woy will do but i believe he will only really use them in the carling cup this season due to lack of experience. It is a big step up for them and we should still have a first team squad of seasoned names if we are going to do anything! Ed please remove the link to the S*n website as this is highly offensive and insensitive especially for a Liverpool rumours website!! other than that totall hooked and in Woy We Twust!

(ed can you please post this, im fed up of submitting them and nothing getting posted)

tbh if RH uses his head there are a few potential targets that would cost little amount of money but would need a bit of work.

there has been talk of old liverpool players coming back which i believe is not the right option.

i would personally go for adriano upfront (massive striker would need training etc but is a world class striker and i available on a free)

at LB i would personally go for charles nzogbia or possible belhadj (if not already moved on) as they would add pace and the balance need in a similar role to glen johnson..

There are alot of dead wood players at the club which i believe are not what i class as a Liverpool player ( eg degan, insua etc).

CM should be an easy decision its been a known fact that masha mants to leave and we would need to find a cm/ dm who could pass and would love to just sit in front of the midfield.. i think its a no brainer (the best passer in the world... David beckham) we could also go for a highly rated youngster who could share the games with Becks - i would personally go for jack rodwell but not guna happen as he plays for the scums... so prob would suggest taking a leaf out of AW books and go african

i think this would be a perfect team where we could push for the title and spend a little but live alot....

any opinons on this is welcome

I THINK THEIR IS REASONS THE ED DIDNT POST YOUR PREVIOUS POSTS
1. ADRIANO IS NOT AVAILABLE AS A FREE HE SIGNED FOR ROMA A WHILE BACK
2. N'ZOGBIA IS A WINGER NOT A LB
3. BECKHAM IS 35 HE WILL PROBABLY NEVER GET TO FULL FITNESS AGAIN, I WOULD GUESS HIS WAGES ARE CRAZY HIGH. AND YOU WANT HIM AS A REPLACEMENT FOR MASCHERANO. BECKHAM CANNOT TACKLE HE DOES NOT SIT IN FRONT OF THE BACK FOUR LIKE YOU SAID.
MORE REALISTIC REDS TARGETS:
LB: IF INSUA STAYS ROY PROB WONT GET ONE AS WE WILL HAVE INSUA, AURELIO AND MAVINGA
DM: THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF MASCHERANO STAYING BUT IF HE LEAVES FOR AROUND 27M THEN ROY WILL REPLACE HIM WITH POULSEN/DEFOUR/BANEGA/MARTINEZ FOR 5M/13M/10M/16M
I DONT ACTUALLY THINK ROY WILL BUY A STRIKER WE HAVE PLENTY OF OPTIONS:TORRES KUYT BABEL JOVANOVIC NGOG PACHECO ECCLESTON AMOO

ALSO IT IS LOOKING LIKELY THAT BORO GK BRAD JONES WILL MOVE TO LIVERPOOL AS BACK UP FOR REINA HE COUNTS AS A HOMEGROWN PLAYER ASWELL

05 Aug 2010 14:10:25
just heard from reliable source that poulsen transfer should be completed very soon. Regarding the takeover nobody knows apart from those involved and if they have any sense they arent going to leak out whos bought the club until its signed sealed and delivered. personally i dont think aguero is worth what people are saying on here, he didnt get into the argentina team and when he played against liverpool he was in forlans shadow, carlton cole would be good addition english and will perform better around quality players which hes not used to with west ham. Red man 7

Ken Aguero was overheard saying that he couldn't possibly play football at LFC as there is no fairtrade and to that end has announced his retirement from football so that he can concentrate on the family business and is now back at Kenco.....all smells a bit rich to me!

Re- Takeover.
I am all for LFC ending up with a mega rich owner / owners...however I for one can't agree with our beloved club being owned by a country or government that allows its people to starve and have terrible standards of living whilst at the same time spend hundreds of millions on players to give me entertainment week in week out......I for one would really have to consider my support for my beloved LFC in that situation as it wouldn't be right on any human level! I'm open to be shot down on that but we have to make a tsand and say do we wnat 4 or 5 world class players knowing our owners have millions of people in their own nation starving, with little or no accomadation!
We have to show we are LFC fans and the reasons we are so known ac ross the globe because we have a sense of what justice is! we understand passion, people and a way of life! without these values we might as well go to the wall!

Kopite70

I totaly agree with you on the matter of "Ken".

On the takeover matter on the other hand I would just like to point out an obvious thing!

Vast amounts of people will live in poverty and starvation regardeless of the government sovergin funds international investements brach spends a lunatic amount of their cash (yuan renminbi) in Liverpool FC. If CIC may choose to invest in LFC or not will make no differnce what so ever to PRC's general population, as it is has no affiliation to the Chinese governments social care programs.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:08:12
After watching Roy Hodgson's press conference it is obvious Mascherano is not in his long term plans.
Because there have been no bids he will undoubtedly speak about Mach as a 'Liverpool player'.
But i believe he was speaking out to the potential bidders to hurry a transfer along. Likely that Poulsen will join as the replacement.
All potential left backs IN will be on hold now that Insua deal fallen through.
Still need one quality winger, (left or right), and a better back up striker than Ngog.
I hope Hodgson is brave enough to look at Pacheco and 17 year old Suso, who was so impressive midweek, because they both look good enough despite their ages.
Expecting a 4-4-1-1 formation for the new season.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:07:21
Kenny Huang is backed by CIC (the chinese governement) which has a reportedly 342 billion dollars to invest and i state invest not squander on enterprises worldwide. That would mean they would invest in not only LFC but liverpool as a city and with liverpool having the oldest chinese community in the country would be a perfect oppurtunity for the chinese government to help its own people and the people of liverpool.

To the person who said "would we want a country with such a terrible human rights record investing in LFC while their own people suffer" the money invested has to be invested abroard it is not to be spent in the homeland, that is what all big buisness has to do, to be able to sell their products worldwide that is why we have toyota, ford, honda etc plants here in our country because without them helping our economy their products would not be allowed to be sold in our country that is Government Policy.

hi

to the EDITOR

ed seen as the takeover seems like it will be complete before the window closes and we seem like we will have a few pound to spend who do YOU think we will sign and were in your eyes do we need more strent.

the face man

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:02:54
Hodgson will sign Defour for 12m, Guarado for 18m, Fucile for 7m and Suarez for 28m. Guarado and Suarez will be bought after the takeover takes place......and its not Huang who will buy Liverpool. It will be Mukesh Ambani of India. He is going to bid 450m for the Reds. In January, he will focus on bringing in 2 English players to help with the quota. Many players will leave in January as well.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:02:41
Trusted sevaral sources have confirmed that roy is about to spend some cash on unwanted star strikers,these are the some of his targets


Emmanuel adebayor,Robinho,Podolski,Klose,Huntelaar,berbtov These transfers will be happend after the take over.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 14:01:48
to this guy
Torres to Chelsea, Liverpool to get £40 M Plus Drogba.

On paper sounds good. 2 quality signing, one player 30 leaving for a younger one. One 26 year old leaving and replaced with a proven 25-100 goals a season 32 year old.

drogba will be retiring in about a year or two he will get about 10 - 25 goals a season and he is a massive diver


torres is worth 80mil if c.ronaldo is and if not injured will score 30-40 goals a season and is not a diver sorry torres is here and here he shall stay

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:59:45
Love the site and all the ecitement around the takeover. However, the postings that use swearing to make their point or ridicule Man U show us true Liverpudlians up in a bad light. Can't we all rise above that level please?

05 Aug 2010 13:57:36
Roy Hodgson is preparing to let Javier Mascherano and Dirk Kuyt go to Inter if a suitable bid is made - £45m for the pair is the asking price.
£5m of that will go on Christian Poulsen to replace Mascherano, and £25m will get James Milner from Aston Villa. Palermo's interest in Lucas Leiva has been rekindled in his recent impressive performances with any bid over £7m considered. Mathieu Flamini is being lined up as a replacement (I would prefer Flamini over Poulsen as Mascherano's replacement). At Left Back – bids will be submitted for Maynor Figeuroa(sp.), Domenico Criscito, Taye Taiwo and Antonio Lopez

I work in the financial sector. I have no inside information but having been involved in a number of significant deals here are my thoughts:

I suspect the new owners that do emerge won't be the ones gathering all the publicity in recent days. The fact that it is rumoured that up to 6 bids were received last week is great news for Liverpool fans as it shows a professional, discrete and correct tendoring process was set up by the Liverpool Chairman & CEO to find suitable new owners for the club and kept quiet. This coupled with the fact that the bank have only extended Gillet & Hicks loan to October while the bank have guaranteed the Premier League that Liverpool will be solvent / remain trading for the entire upcoming season means the bank are saying to the yanks that no matter what, they are out in Oct. They can therefore either committ to the tendoring process to professionally find the best new owners for Liverpool and make some small profit after repaying the bank, or the bank takes control in Oct. sells the club itself only worrying about clearing it's debt and the yanks end up taking a loss. Any new owners would want time before the start of the season to invest in the squad and so there must be a set timeframe complete due diligence on the different bidders and select a new owner.

I suspect the potential bidders who are allowing media leaks of their interest are trying to influence decision making / get the club on the cheap and won't be the serious bidders that are ultimately successful. The chairman/ceo and commerical director are to be fair, playing a blinder and seem to be of the quality the club has needed for decades.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:52:47
why does everyone say we need Aguero. Torres cannot partner with another striker we should be going for Van Der Vaart and defour and we should sign Brad Jones

I am from Australia and it has been proven that we have good keepers internationally so sign this guy and a handy signing.
With this other striker we seem to need is rubbish we have jovanovic n'gog Pacheco and many others why waste money when there is talent and quality right in front of us.
is there any true rumors on our sale so far

Great site for us LFC fans, thanks Ed. Speaking of the Ed, where'd you go? We always apreciate your comments and resources. Some questions/observations I have: First I don't think Masch will stay. no bid has been received yet, but didn't Inter suggest they wouldn't buy him until the end of the transfer window? Second, I still can't get my head around the Poulsen linkage. Yes, Roy first coached him when he was younger and yes, he is cheap, but from what I've seen he isn't LFC quality. IF he is brought in would he really start over Aquilani? I agree that if Masch is sold then we will definitely need a SOLID repacement, but I think we also need a better LB (Fabio, Insua just can't cut it), and what happens if Torres gets injured? N'gog is a fine 3rd striker, but we need quality to play (with) Torres, or in place of when he is out. Thoughts Ed? Anyone?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:50:24
I seem to remember reading in the Liverpool Echo a few months back that The Standard Charter Bank shirt sponsorship deal was worth £80 million to Liverpool F.C. Has any of that money become available yet ?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:50:23
It looks all set that the club will be taken over before the end of the transfer window! HURRAH! The club will be virtually debt-free and free of the American ownership. The Chinese Government offer fronted by Kenny Huang is real! $323bn in assets and $2tn in foreign currency (say the Times) has me in dream world; we'd be the richest club in the world, able to build a new stadium and compete in the transfer market.
Following our deal with Standard Chartered and Ian Ayre's experiences in the Asian Market, our sustainability will come from the development of a fan base in Asia. I know that Ayre is championing this bid.
Nasser Al-Kharafi is still interested, but this deal may not be in Liverpool's interest – although worth around £6bn, the Al-Kharafi's are businessmen, looking for a profit from any investment!
The Rhone Group and Yahda Kirdi are not viable bidders in the view of Broughton, whilst Keith Harris (of the Red Knights) is supporting a bid of which I don't know – either the Al-Kharafi's or the 3rd unknown bidder.

best point of being taken over by CIC is just how pissed MAN UTD and SAF willl get. utd basically have all there fans in china so with the way that the country is run they will get there return easily only let liverpool shirts into the country will sell plenty and utd will lose that part of there fan base :)

To the person who asked what happened to dossena. He left in January to Napoli. Where have you been?

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:41:38
So then. this is not a rumour, however this is my opinion, possibly even my wishes. After the proposed takeover, hopefully by Huang, these are the deals i can see being done.

Left Back - For me, Wayne Bridge would be excellent to start at left back, an english lad, however his wages are abit off putting. anyone else like Santon, Bastos or Figeroua would also be good.

CDM - Christian Poulson sounds like an ideal replacement for Masch if he goes. I would love to see Scotty Parker at the club. Also Diarra sounds good.

CF - We need someone to partner Torres, and with the talk of Aguero i would love him to come to Anfield. Also the talk of Samul Eto'o, he would be excellent to partner El Nino.

Possible Starting 11.

Reina
Johnson Carragher Agger Bridge
Kuyt Poulson Gerrard Cole
Torres Aguerro

LFC.

Could this mysterious twin brother "Ken" in fact be mister Kenneth Aguero of Gilroy CA, Us? If so the 32 year old will not be able to sign as he is probably in jail after : and I quote "A 32-year-old Gilroy man was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer Sunday evening after he allegedly resisted arrest, climbed into a patrol car and drove at an officer. The incident began about 4:45 p.m., when Kenneth Aguero went to Marx Towing in the 5700 block of Obata Way to pick up a towed vehicle."

If thats true that is brilliant because it sums ken up perfectly

your clearly not a lfc fan considering he left last season but i cant remember the price and he was s**t

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:28:58
tbh if RH uses his head there are a few potential targets that would cost little amount of money but would need a bit of work.

i would personally go for adriano upfront

at LB i would personally go for charles nzogbia or possible belhadj

CM should be an easy decision... i think its a no brainer (the best passer in the world... David beckham)

any opinons on this is welcome

***********************************************

Adriano has just joined Roma, and even if he hadn't I think he's too unfit and lazy to make it in the Premier League.

N'Zogbia and Belhadj are more sensible suggestions, but I think they are below the standard we should be aiming for.

Beckham is unrealistic. He would never come to Liverpool because he was such a big player at Man U; they love him over there and he loves them. Also, if you're aiming to spend little, Beckham is not a good idea because of his wages.

Charles Nzogbia and David Beckham are definately not LFC type of players and are simply no longer or never have been good enough for our club and never will be.. So no that is not my idea of a perfect team mate.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:16:32
I too am very worried about having our club owned by an organisation directed by a government that exploits its citizens and is prepared to see them suffer a low standard of living whilst they feather their nests and live a life of luxuary.
However, enough about the Royal Bank of Scotland and the UK government - let's get new Chinese owners! Or anyone but H&G

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:13:53
My God. So in 2010 we are all having to read the Business News pages in the Sunday Times to figure out what our club and players at LFC are going to be doing on a Saturday afternoon.
Is it all about BUYING INSTANT SUCCESS? OK then become a Chelsea or Man City, you can have them.
We were alway a club with a heart, with a love of good team football (no big'eds as shankly would say), with money to spend based on our success the previous season, with a manager who loved the city and its people and with players who became "family".
What has happened since our American cousins took over? They bought an "asset". Then they tried to buy success on credit for later profit and then came the Banking Crisis. And somewhere in there we lost our LFC family. We all became addicted to the latest gossip in the finance columns.
I make this plea. Whoever takes over - please feel the love and passion around this beautiful club. If you can't love it yourself, stay out. We want a long term believer to join our family and to give us back our heart and pride. And players coming here who walk tall when they pull on that red shirt.
We need to get back to our roots and if that becomes a global phenomenon ok - there's plenty of room for more believers.
It starts and ends with people - the right people from top to bottom....and it's long term, very long term.
will someone translate this into Chinese, Arabic, Indian etc. etc.
Good luck Roy from a long winded old idiot.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:07:17
Figueroa and Bridge are just smokescreens as Roy really wants Gareth Bale and will offer 32m that should be enough for Spurs to get themselves another left back/midfielder

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:06:07
Just seen on sky sports transfer news website and liverpool website itself that liverpool have put in a bid for Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones.

LFC

Can people stop refering to the Liverpool website to make itr sound offical, it's only mentioned in the rumours section of it!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 13:03:44
To everyone saying if kenny haung takes over roy wont buy all these players but kenny haung will bid for players himself so when roy uses his brain and buys the essintals kenny will be bidding for players like messi and ronaldo but thats if he buys us

Re- Takeover.
I am all for LFC ending up with a mega rich owner / owners...however I for one can't agree with our beloved club being owned by a country or government that allows its people to starve and have terrible standards of living whilst at the same time spend hundreds of millions on players to give me entertainment week in week out......I for one would really have to consider my support for my beloved LFC in that situation as it wouldn't be right on any human level! I'm open to be shot down on that but we have to make a tsand and say do we wnat 4 or 5 world class players knowing our owners have millions of people in their own nation starving, with little or no accomadation!
We have to show we are LFC fans and the reasons we are so known ac ross the globe because we have a sense of what justice is! we understand passion, people and a way of life! without these values we might as well go to the wall!

A bit naive here. You could argue English owners are crap because of 'war crimes in Iraq' and slaughtering children there or supplying arms to Israel. What about Dubai or Abu-Dhabi who still have an over zealous justice system that subordinates women etc. When you start pin pointing a single aspect of a countries way of life, you weave yourself one hell of a web.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 12:43:48
Fancy believing what you read in The Sun:

Hodgson actually said that he was glad that Torres was staying because IF a huge bid had actually come in then the club MAY have found it hard to refuse in the present circumstances. That is quite understandable and a long way from inviting a bid

 

 

05 Aug 2010 12:40:43
To Mr DRX:

As much as i would like to believe what you are saying, i can't help but wonder as to why someone who is "directly involved in the sale process" would risk their position by leaking information on a rumours website. I'm sure if you are indeed who you say you are then it wouldn't be too hard for them to discover what you're doing. As such i think it more likely that you have heard from someone you trust and are passing on what you've heard.

Personally i don't think anyone other than the liverpool board, barcap & bidders have a clue who our club will be sold to. All i can do is hope that whoever it is has the ability to put their money where their mouth is. I honestly don't want to become the new city; paying over the odds for players and ending up with a wage structure that borders on lunacy. I just want a new stadium, the ability to compete in the transfer market and for us to be able to attract the best players in world football because the trophies, rather than the money, we can offer.

It's a rather old saying but the best players do not make the best team!!

 

 

05 Aug 2010 12:33:04
REINA
JOHNSON CARRAGHER AGGER INSUA
POULSEN MASCHERANO
KUYT GERRARD J.COLE
EL NINO

1) Mascherano will not leave, he would have gone by now! Hodgson has not received any bids yet.

2) Poulsen will arrive for about £5 million. He is 30 and so won't be brought for anymore.

3) I cannot believe some Liverpool fans want to see SWP start on the right wing ahead of Kuyt! SWP would cost about £7 million.. it would be the biggest waste of money ever. He attempts to dribble past the whole opposition team. Yet he can't get past the first player! Dirk Kuyt, Starts for Holland, the 2nd best team in the world. He works hard, he can cross a ball, he scores every now and the. He is quite quick. The one negative, he is ugly!

4) Liverpool do not need Aguero. Hodgson will play the 4-2-3-1. Aguero would not come to be used as back up. Hodgson wouldn't spend that much on back up! How about Anelka, an awful world cup, but guaranteed 10-20 goals a season. Will fall out of favour at Chelsea with Neymar looking likely to come in. We could get him for under £10 million as well!

Carragher's Submarine :)

To the guy who said this

Torres to Chelsea, Liverpool to get £40 M Plus Drogba.

On paper sounds good. 2 quality signing, one player 30 leaving for a younger one. One 26 year old leaving and replaced with a proven 25-100 goals a season 32 year old.

25-100 goals a season? what has drogba been having for brekky to score 100 goals a seaon? think your wrong on the gerrard and torres leaving and defo wrong about the 100 goals a season mate

"Big rumour was going to break tomorrow and was due for completion deadline day.

Gerrard plus £20 M to Real Madrid in exchange for Kaka.
( Breaking news on Sky, Kaka out injured for 2 months) Convenient or what ?

2nd part of rumour:

Torres to Chelsea, Liverpool to get £40 M Plus Drogba.

On paper sounds good. 2 quality signing, one player 30 leaving for a younger one. One 26 year old leaving and replaced with a proven 25-100 goals a season 32 year old.

I doubt either will happen now.
Apparently Drogba was only going to join L.F.C because of the Kaka deal."

Utter nonsense.

For a start, I really can't see Chelsea wanting to let go of Drogba - even in exchange for Torres. I, personally, would never want to see Drogba in the Liverpool shirt - he's a great striker, but I have zero respect for him as a sportsman. 'Nando has proven that he's not just a brilliant striker, but he's also a humble guy with a lot of class - I wouldn't trade him for any other player, to be honest.

Secondly, Gerrard has stated that he's going to stay - I cannot concieve of a time that LFC would let him go to another club, unless it was a decision that he had made. Certainly not for Kaka, either. I've never really believed that he's as good as so many make out and I really couldn't see him filling Stevies boots, especially with the injuries and form he's had over the past couple of seasons.

I really, really hope that we get the takeover done and dusted as soon as possible. I just want to see our team going into the new season in as good spirits as possible. If we manage to get some new players in, then that really can't hurt - but, I do think we have a pretty good squad there and that regaining our position in the top 4 is certainly not out of the question.

I think Roy's been doing a great job so far and I love the fact that he seems to be putting some faith into the young-players - let's hope they get a great result tonight at Anfield!

05 Aug 2010 12:25:22
FOUND THIS ON : freshbusinessthinking.com

Chinese businessman Kenny Huang has publicly announced that he is interested in buying Liverpool FC, a move which would give the Chinese government a stand in the UK football club.

Mr. Huang is reportedly being funded in his bid for the football club by the China Investment Corporation (CIC), the overseas investment division of the Chinese government. CIC is believed to have assets ranging to at least $332 billion available to spend overseas, and has an overall fund of $2 trillion.

CIC is alleged to have traded $558 million in shares since July 19 to pay off Liverpool's debt, underlining their interest in the club. CIC also has a significant investment in Canary Wharf.

The club confirmed Mr. Huang's involvement in a statement, which said: "Mr Huang would like to emphasise that he has registered interest in investing in Liverpool FC but has made no formal bid...There has been much speculation from a wide array of people, many of whom have little knowledge of the facts".

Syrian businessman Yahya Kirdi has made a seperate bid for the club, pledging to invest in a new ground at Stanley Park and create a 'stadium with a hotel and shopping centre'. His bid has been welcomed by the club's owners George Gillet and Tom Hicks, but has been treated less warmly by RBS and chairman Martin Broughton.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 12:22:09
All this talk of £150m to be spent on players may sound appealing but do we really want to be beholden to the Chinese government. Thanks, but no thanks. Neither do I want the club to go down the Man City route. What I would wish for is an owner who will wipe out the Hicks & Gillette generated debt which is bleeding the club dry and who will assist us in funding a new stadium. Long term it will only be healthy for the club if it support itself with its own turnover rather than owner handouts. I would be content if the new owners were to allow Roy to spend the entirety of the money generated from transfers this summer plus an additional 15m. this would give Roy an estimated £50m to spend (2-3 quality signings I the last few days of the transfer window would be perfect). Reality Red

(ed can you please post this, im fed up of submitting them and nothing getting posted)

tbh if RH uses his head there are a few potential targets that would cost little amount of money but would need a bit of work.

there has been talk of old liverpool players coming back which i believe is not the right option.

i would personally go for adriano upfront (massive striker would need training etc but is a world class striker and i available on a free)

at LB i would personally go for charles nzogbia or possible belhadj (if not already moved on) as they would add pace and the balance need in a similar role to glen johnson..

There are alot of dead wood players at the club which i believe are not what i class as a Liverpool player ( eg degan, insua etc).

CM should be an easy decision its been a known fact that masha mants to leave and we would need to find a cm/dm who could pass and would love to just sit in front of the midfield.. i think its a no brainer (the best passer in the world... David beckham) we could also go for a highly rated youngster who could share the games with Becks - i would personally go for jack rodwell but not guna happen as he plays for the scums... so prob would suggest taking a leaf out of AW books and go african

i think this would be a perfect team where we could push for the title and spend a little but live alot....

any opinons on this is welcome

To the person who said Bale would sign for Liverpool.
He is a Tottenham Hotspur god and in my view in the top 5 left midfielders in the world. Redknapp would never let him go even for 25 million.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 12:02:56
The sooner we get rid of Mash, the better financially we will be to buy replacements, so I propose let him go for £20m, then bid for Milner. I like the thought of Gerrard and Milner in the middle of the park, lots of energy, passing ability and goal scoring threat.

If we could also sell Aquallani, (no-one can tell me Pachecco can't do just as good a job as him in that "hole" role). Also a few people have muted about SWP signing, I feel Amoo has done enough this pre-season to be second choice RW behind either Kuyt or Maxi.

Considering any takeover is well away from deadline day, we will still have to be frugal in our signings, so therefore the sale of the deadwood, and the purchase of Milner and Turan and that should be about it, leaving a squad of:-

Reina
Cav
Gulasci

Johnson Carra Skirtel Agger
Kelly Kyryagios Wilson Aurellio

Maxi Gerrard Milner Turan
Amoo Spearing Lucas Jovanavic

Torres Cole
Ngog Kuyt

Anyone remember the last home game of last season? What language was our sponsor written in? Yes, you guessed it Chinese.
From the official website at the time: "Chinese messages will be displayed during the match on the perimeter advertising boardings and in the Carlsberg Lounge at Anfield a Chinese competition winner will present a trophy to the "Man of the Match" after the final whistle."
And now the Chinese government are backing the Huang bid. Coincidence? Who knows.

If so the 32 year old will not be able to sign as he is probably in jail after : and I quote "A 32-year-old Gilroy man was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer Sunday evening after he allegedly resisted arrest, climbed into a patrol car and drove at an officer.

its to be announced later today on sky sports that ken aguero is going to announce that he is actually "The Stig" and has been signed on a 30years contract with the bbc for a pint a day of john smiths and dry roasted peanuts. The whole crisp debate is futile. He is also going to confirm that his football career is just a smoke screen. think about it have you ever seen ken and "the Stig" together?? you know it makes sense

Although the takeover is fantastic news, £150 million pounds to spend on new players would not solve our problems at all. We need slow and steady growth, so some investment would be necessary, but we have a youth set-up which is just starting to produce some real gems. Buying the best talent would undoubtably buy us the league, but want to earn it! We want to rub man u's noses in it and be able to say, we didnt just buy the best, we produced the best 2!

Re:

Let's hope another foreign investment group (non-capitalist country) can take hold of the reins and run this club for success and drive it with passion, which ultimately represents the heart of every LFC supporter. And that will never happen if the goal is to sell shirts...

I can see it now, we will be owned by the North Korean government, we will win every match 10-0 and anyone who says otherwise will be tortured. There are very few non-capitalist countries around anymore and those that there are tend to have very poor human rights records. Furthermore, why would a non-capitalist buy a business?

Bob- Don't forget that Hicks has always backed George W Bush and they are very good friends. As Guvenor of Texas George W Bush had more people executed in that state than anyone before him or since and like i said Hicks has always backed him.

05 Aug 2010 11:32:50
If my knowledge is correct (I'm not going to sit here and pretend it always is, it's far from not) Kenny Huang and Yahya Kirdi are in pole position for the club. These 2 are in it for the long-term future of the club. However, the Kirdi deal is backed by the Rhone Group, friends of G+H. They claim that everything is sorted now, including the price of the club and would instantly remove the debt and sort out the stadium, but as I said they are G+H mates, so their promises are nothing to go by.
The Huang deal is, as we all know, supposedly backed by the CIC and we would actually be the richest club in the world. Now I know a lot of us don't want to have a Man City buyout, but that is exactly what this one would be. Of course they would be expecting a return, but as I've also said they are in it for the long haul. I pray that it is the Huang group that gets it.
Now then, let's say that it is, Liverpool will have 2 weeks in the market for new signings with a billionaire backer, but I cannot see us getting £150m for 2 weeks, it will see us make the same mistakes as City. Also RH is a very smart man and will not buy any player we are linked with, only the essentials so I'd imagine a RB, CM, LM and a ST, with a solid LB if the funding is there.
The RB is very much needed with the sale of Phillipp Degen imminent, Stephen Darby remains Glen Johnson's only back-up. Micah Richards is English and would possibly become available with Mancini favouring Zabaleta and Onuhoa for the RB position. a fee of around £8m could be agreed.
CM will be needed through the sale of Mascherano, but with RH wanting a change of formation (4-4-2) then the CM will simply be a back-up to Aquilani and Gerrard. Poulsen is someone we have come out and said we want and would be cheap, around the £5m mark. However, with a takeover, perhaps we could afford Liege's or Sporting's £12m asking prices of Defour or Veloso.
The LM role will be a simple one. We want him but cannot afford him, but with the takeover Arda Turan would be easy. He's a huge fan and provides creativity and goals from the flanks.
A new ST would have to be able to work well with Nando and provide him with chances and be able to work under the circumstances that he's the main man, yet have the ability to drag 2 defenders with him. RH wants Peter Crouch for £15m, but Redknapp is unwilling to sell to a top 6 rival. However, I'd imagine that should Crouchy get wind of a deal he will want it to take place.
Should we go for a LB I'd imagine Taye Taiwo would be on the list, but as I say I cannot see it happening.
So next season's team sheet:
3 Goalkeepers (required)
1. Diego Cavalieri
25. Pepe Reina
30. Charles Itandje (no, seriously. He's even got a number)

8 Defenders
2. Glen Johnson (E)
3. MICAH RICHARDS (E)
5. Daniel Agger
12. Fabio Aurelio
16. Sotiris Kyrgiakos
22. Emiliano Insua
23. Jamie Carragher (E)
37. Martin Skrtel

9 Midfielders
4. Alberto Aquilani
6. CHRISTIAN POULSEN
7. ARDA TURAN
8. Steven Gerrard (E)
10. Joe Cole (E)
14. Milan Jovanovic
19. Ryan Babel
21. Lucas Leiva
33. Jonjo Shelvey (E)

5 Strikers
9. Fernando Torres
15. Peter Crouch (E)
18. Dirk Kuyt
24. David N'Gog
39. Nathan Eccleston (E)

This way we also have the 8 home grown players rule sorted.

Hodgson is on the verge of putting in a bid for Esteban Cambiasso as he needs a replacement for Mascherano, he also thinks that the Agrentine moving the other way in the long expected transfer will sweeten the deal.

AS the person who said months ago that LFC's new owners were coming, I will refrain from 'told you so' childishness.

However, as someone DIRECTLY involved in the sale process (on the legal side) - I have said each time I've posted, that their will be OWNERS plural not one single owner. This has been apparent since FEB 2010, when the first major bid for the club was tabled.

So - firstly - the Kirdi bid. This is not what it seems. There is no indication of funds and no serious backing either. If Kirdi does, somehow, get the deal, he'll have to leverage the funds to do it, just like H&G. The first 'bid' in April 2010 was dismissed as a joke. The same will go for this latest 'bid'.

Kirdi and his 'group' will not satisfy the stringent checks put in place by Barcap. Kirdi's bragging in the Canadian media should sound serious alarm bells. This is the preferred bid of H&G because it will make them a profit. BUT - H&G cannot make a sale because they are NOT involved in the process. All serious bids are with Barcap and only Barcap. The board decide and H&G have no right of veto. They are 'lame ducks' to use a political cliche from Hicks' home country.

Second. There are TWO massive bids in place. By massive, I do not mean lots of money. They are massive because both bidders have serious resources and have tabled plans to help regenerate LFC and the area surrounding Anfield. Both have the resources, desire and connections to build the new stadium within 24 months of taking over. Their bids contain detailed information on the stadium builds in question.

Both of these bidders have an 'antelope' connection. The first of these bids was originally tabled in FEB 2010 and was hours from being finalised. The second bid has been on the table for weeks, not days, as the media is reporting.

The media have only recently learned of the bids and want to pretend that they have a finger on the pulse of the sale. This is rubbish. This secret was well-kept for weeks before it broke. The second bid, widely reported now, IS concrete. And it is the preferred option of Broughton and Ayre. The only block to this is Purslow, but he is softening.

Finally - there are NO OTHER SERIOUS BIDDERS. There have been expressions of interest by a few groups, but no discussions. Anyone who comes in now will be weeks behind the two serious bids in place. All the talk of due diligence yet to be carried out is nonsense too. Both bidders, via Barcap, engaged the company I work for to assess the books for them. That's what I've been doing for the last four months.

The assessments for each potential buyer were exhaustive because there is a serious mess at the heart of LFC finances, which, if the club isn't sold by October, will mean administration and points deucted. It will also mean that LFC will NOT be able to fullfil it's obligations regarding player wages and games played. It really is THAT serious, I'm afraid.

Both assessments are finalised and have been seen. Expect the decision to be made over the weekend, with money in ESCROW accounts by next week (early). There is nothing to stop this happening, if the board (I.A, M.B and C.P) want it. If I was a betting man I'd put my money on the second of the antelopes (the YingYing).

Whatever happens, believe what you like, and enjoy the ride.

Just seen on sky sports transfer news website and liverpool website itself that liverpool have put in a bid for Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones.

05 Aug 2010 11:21:55
Looking forward to going to Anfield tonight with renewed optimism for the season ahead. I dont believe though that Aquilani will still be with us come January. I was criticised too when I said Dossena was useless (after we signed him) and I must give him a chance - but Alberto is not a CM for LFC. Certainly Lucas + Aquilani is not a partnership that would terrify the top teams! Expect Poulsen to be partnered by Gerrard or even Cole.

The Kenny Huang bid is backed by the chinease government. If they were to takeover they wouldn't be interested in buying players etc they would only put in money that made liverpool successful enough to start selling products in China. I'm pretty sceptical about this. All I want is the fat stupid Yankers out of our club, new owners with a lot of cash. I don't want to do a City and buy loads of useless players who aren't loyal.

Don't be deluded

Just because Kenny is backed by CIC, this would not make liverpool the richest club in the world.


They are an investment company!!

It like saying Barclays Bank are backing Tramere, with funds , there not unlimited it would be an investment , a loan , they expect a return

rasone

In response to the above

Yes we will be the richest the club!
CIC are only one part of the Chinese Government investment arm. All Chinese State Owned companie's put together have a reported 3.6 trillion at their disposal. What do you thunk the Abu Dhabi Group is? It's the investment arm of Abu Dhabi. If CIC buy us then of course we will be the richest club in the world and probably the richest club there ever will be because of the Chinese market alone.

Big rumour was going to break tomorrow and was due for completion deadline day.

Gerrard plus £20 M to Real Madrid in exchange for Kaka.
( Breaking news on Sky, Kaka out injured for 2 months) Convenient or what ?

2nd part of rumour:

Torres to Chelsea, Liverpool to get £40 M Plus Drogba.

On paper sounds good. 2 quality signing, one player 30 leaving for a younger one. One 26 year old leaving and replaced with a proven 25-100 goals a season 32 year old.

I doubt either will happen now.
Apparently Drogba was only going to join L.F.C because of the Kaka deal.

Not a rumour but can i just ask, how is it possible for huang to complete a takeover when he has already missed the deadline? We wont be taken over before arsenal game and even if we were there wouldnt be anytime to buy a decent striker, so looks as though our hopes are with ngog. Expect mourinho next year as fergie wont retire if we do well this season

City are backed by a similar investment company and they are considerred the richest at the moment so theoretically we would be the richest club .

Morning Fellow Rumour Lovers,

Big News this morning from Asia.... SERIOUS NEWS!

China are getting all the headlines for the proposed takeover of LFC. However, the reason they are so keen to make their intentions clear, and put figures on a proposed transfer kitty and Stressed their intent to build a new stadium is to stop a rival bid from INDIA....

SOURCE- Big boys from the Sports Press in India. (the team that unveiled Azharuddin and Cronje match fixing)

They are regulars at the JW marriott Hotel- massively popular for bollywood and hollywood stars, sports stars, and Bombays many millionaires.

SPECIFICS-

The bid is widely believed to be from mr Ambani but there is no confirmation of this. Only leak is that its an Indian and 3 meetings have been held at the JW Marriott Hotel over the last fortnight in Bombay (Mumbai).

the Indians are desparate to break into Football- after successfully winning the right to host the commonwealth games and developing a F1 track in Delhi, they see Football as the next big appeal.

They have a business model for pre season tours of India, and having a unique LFC sister team in Bombay.

They have already looked at opening 3 official LFC stores in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.

If successful, the individual would be the sole owner, with an appointed individual full time to co-run the club. (Purslow replacement).

The big difference is that the INDIANS will not move quickly for a new stadium as they want to prove their initial intent by "spoiling the fans" to a world class team to be proud of.

They see Anfield as a fortress and feel that "the fans" want premiership glory at Anfield before moving to a new home.

The indian bid is believed to be the one Broughton is most interested in , which is why he hasnt snapped the hand off Huang and signed and sealed the deal.

China are desperate to push through a deal and if not accepted by end of next week, they will walk away.

No one knows anything apart from the people involved but anything is going to be better than what we've got. They will have to spend millions in making us successful which is great, we only need a few players, LB, CM, S and get rid of the gash like Insua and Kuyt.

I can't believe the fans who say Kuyt is good. He gets tackled all the time, He Constunley gives the ball away putting the team on the back foot, he's weak and the slowest player in the league but that doesn't matter beacsue he works hard!! give me a break. All roy has to do it drop him, inusa and lucas and he's on the way.

People stop saying lucas is better than Mash, give me strength, the fact is we are losing the best DMC in world football to go with the best passer and controller in world football, well done Rafa. Good thing is Rafa said mash was worth 50m so the idiot will have to pay big money!

Re:

Let's hope another foreign investment group (non-capitalist country) can take hold of the reins and run this club for success and drive it with passion, which ultimately represents the heart of every LFC supporter. And that will never happen if the goal is to sell shirts...

I can see it now, we will be owned by the North Korean government, we will win every match 10-0 and anyone who says otherwise will be tortured. There are very few non-capitalist countries around anymore and those that there are tend to have very poor human rights records. Furthermore, why would a non-capitalist buy a business?

Three Goalies:
1. Jose Reina
2. Diego Cavalieri
3. Peter Gulasci

Eight Defenders:
1. Jamie Carragher
2. Danny Wilson
3. Martin Skrtel
4. Glen Johnson
5. Daniel Agger
6. Sotrios Kyrgiakos
7. Fabio Aurelio
8. Davide Santon

Nine Midfielders:
1. Joe Cole
2. Alberto Aquilani
3. Ryan Babel
4. Steven Gerrard
5. Maxi Rodriguez
6. Lucas
7. Damien Plesis
8. Jonjo Shelvey
9. Shaun Wright-Phillips

Five Strikers:
1. Fernando Torres
2. Milan Jovanovic
3. Dirk Kuyt
4. Dani Pacheco
5. Byran Ruiz

That is an amazing team, I would say.

I'm sorry... but it's also part of the new ruling that players under 21 don't have to be registered. I don't think we'd waste numbers on players like Pacheco etc who definitely fall under that rule.

Also... it's quite unlikely I think that Santon, SWP or Ruiz will join the club, Poulsen seems most likely at the moment.
Who knows what will happen if a takeover is successful, but I still think from Roy's proposed targets that another winger (like SWP) or a flair wingback (like Santon) are the least of his concerns. Expect experienced, solid, technical players and another striker.

 

 

05 Aug 2010 09:32:32
Not a rumour just a few observations.

1) It seems that some bidders are wanting to at least have their intentions reported in the media. Is this because they feel that their offer isn't the front runner and they're trying to get the fans behind them? Saying that you'll clear the debt, build the stadium and buy whichever player the manager wants is definitely going to appeal to every LFC fan

Or...

2) Are the club allowing/wanting this info to be made public so they can get a feel for which bid the fans will support?

Ed has been very very quiet ever since starting this LFC site [great move by the way Ed!]. It's as though he's been gagged!

Could it be that Ed is privy to some info and has been asked by those involved in the takeover on LFC side to host this page to gather fans reactions to the takeover news being leaked... without influencing fans in any way?

OK enough conspiracy theories.

My views from what I've read of the bidders. I think there's excellent long term potential from the Huang deal. There is massive potential for merchandise sales in Asia. China is a major global growth area and is a huge and relatively untapped sports consumer market, and as others have said, there's potential for this deal to pave the way for further Chinese investment in Liverpool (and vice versa).

btw - Loving how the Ken Aguero thing has taken off. Especially the T-Shirts! :-D

not a rumour just an observation
if masherano is sold the only candidates that would be a sussesful signing are steven defour, javi martinez or ever banega but with the takeover looking as if it will be complete before the transfer deadline then i would love a move or alonso but think real madrid would be reluctant to sell him

to fill the left back posistion i would personally love a move for michel bastos which is again surplus to the takeover. 2nd choice would be david santon which could be included in the masherano deal

finally the second stricker would be aguero which will only happen with the takeover being complete

team for next year (hopeful)

========riena========
johnson=cara=agger=bastos
==== martinez/alonso====
====aquallani=gerrard====
===aguero=torres=cole===

obviously this team is completly wishful but is on the other hand not too far fetched

Guys we are lfc..let's stop linking ourselves with man city casts offs..once a takeover is done we are on the same bracket as man city and Chelsea so we want high profile players and in my opinion we only need 4players..ynwa

 

 

05 Aug 2010 09:13:26
SOrry ed if you get this twice but I used the contact us form by accident.

The takeover of LFC is fantastic news, but £150million for transfer would ruin the progress we have been making. Spending all that money on superstar players isn't the answer to our problems. We need steady investment where necessary.

Remember we have a youth set up which is starting to produce some real gems - Pacheco, amoo, ayala for example.

We need to be a sustainable business, not a chelsea or man city. We dont want to buy the title, we want to earn it. What better way would there be to rub man u's noses in it than winning number 19 without spending the dosh.

Man u are in big trouble, they have enormous debt compared to us, which is why CIC are investing in us instead of us. OUr brand is be exploited in the far east and Liverpool will surely become the biggest sports brand in the world.

Number 19 here we come!

Please Lord let`s hope he doesn`t take this great club over. Don`t even think about the monies involved. Liverpool FC would be just a political toy for a country with dodgy human rights & who are very circumspect with the truth at the best of times.

Irrespective of whether the takeover goes through or not, Roy Hodgson is not the kind of manager to wait. His transfer plans are for the immediate and not for the never never. The chances are that he will look to bring in the players he had already earmarked before the takeover talk took over. Konchesky, another striker and possibly Poulsen or Deffour to replace Mascherano who will not go for less than 25 million. It would not become the new manager to let the old manager get one over on him at the beginning of his tenure.

Let me think... Kenny H investing in the club after all the links b/w lfc and china... sounds like this deal was in the works by the yanks all along. now that they're in trouble, the funds seem appealing but with what clauses attached? maybe red shirts will be pawned all over asia (of course manufactured in child labor camps) and walmart usa (human labor camps)... hmmm let me think again- NO THANKS!!

I think the chiefs at LFC know this and don't want this at any cost... but if the cost is defaulting on loans and losing Torres, well maybe it has to happen. Would be a shame though.

Let's hope another foreign investment group (non-capitalist country) can take hold of the reins and run this club for success and drive it with passion, which ultimately represents the heart of every LFC supporter. And that will never happen if the goal is to sell shirts...

Hi Ken Aguero Here, I thought I should come on here and explain myself to the fans first before the story breaks in the press. After much consideration and days of hard negotiations I have decided that I should not join LFC. Despite the obvious temptations of life time financial stability and glory that will last past my days on this planet, I cannot leave the Dog and Duck Team it would break my heart. Thanks for the interest though, I have been able to negotiate an extra apres match free pint with Fat Man Pat (Dog & Duck Landlord and Technical Director). Please dont try and change my mind, I am resolute. No ammount of money, fame, pork scratchings, women or cars will tempt me.

Here's an article from one of our biggest sports channel TSN in Canada... REDS ARE WORLD WIDE!
Even in MONTREAL!

MONTREAL -- A Canadian-based Syrian businessman leading a consortium to buy the storied Liverpool soccer team says he is looking to not only build the troubled club but the British city as well.

Yahya Kirdi, who was born in Syria but came to Canada eight years ago, told The Canadian Press he has ambitious plans if he takes over the Premier League club.

"I want to build Liverpool," he said Wednesday from his home near Montreal.

The economic impact for the port city best known for spawning the Beatles in the 1960s would likely be most strongly felt because of a proposed stadium that is a key part of the deal being negotiated by Kirdi and his group.

"I have a new plan which I have given (Liverpool co-owner) George Gillett," Kirdi said of the stadium.

"This one is not only a stadium but also a stadium and hotel, five star, and shopping centre."

The facility would also include a solarium to generate solar power, which would be provided to Liverpudlians.

He said he has already been in contact with French and Swiss companies that have built stadiums in the Middle East.

"Everybody who wants to come into Liverpool wants to take the money and go outside," Kirdi said, adding he wants to help the community.

Tom Hicks and former Montreal Canadiens owner George Gillett Jr. put the soccer club on the auction block in April after being squeezed by banks over the team's debt of C$386.5 million (237 million pounds).

Kirdi was born in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo in 1966 and played soccer for hometown clubs Al-Itihad and Al-Oruba in the 1980s as well as the national youth team.

He represents a group of investors from the Middle East and Canada and says he has been trying to secure the deal for the last five months.

The consortium could face competition from Chinese investor Kenny Huang, chairman of the Hong Kong-based investment company QSL Sports, who issued a statement Wednesday expressing his interest in the club.

"Mr. Huang would like to emphasize that he has registered interest in investing in Liverpool FC but has made no formal bid," his Hong Kong representatives said.

Huang is co-chairman of both the National Basketball League of China and the Chinese Baseball League.

Martin Broughton, who was brought in as Liverpool chairman to oversee the sale process, said he hopes a buyer for the club can be found before the transfer window closes Aug. 31.

Kirdi announced in a statement Wednesday that his group is in "advanced negotiations" with Hicks and Gillett to buy them out.

"Agreement has been reached on all major terms including the purchase price, repayment of the existing bank debt from RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) and Wells Fargo and financing of a new stadium in Liverpool's Stanley Park," the statement said. "A formal purchase agreement between the parties is in the final stage of negotiation."

But according to the Guardian newspaper, Kirdi made similar claims earlier this year and had previously been dismissed as a serious bidder by the club.

London's Daily Telegraph also quoted unidentified sources saying officials within the club do not consider Kirdi a legitimate contender to buy the team and don't expect him to lodge a firm offer.

The Times also reported that the Royal Bank of Scotland dismissed news of a bid by Kirdi.

Kirdi, who also oversees investments in Europe and North America, pledged to invest in the squad, which dropped from Premier League runner-up to seventh place last season -- denying them a spot in this season's Champions League.

"Liverpool is a massive football club with passionate and proud fans in Merseyside and in every part of the world," Kirdi said. "With additional money to improve the squad and financing in place to build the new stadium, LFC will be on a solid foundation to compete in the Premiership and in Europe for years to come."

He was reluctant to criticize the current owners in the interview, calling them "friends." But he allowed they may not have understood soccer that well, adding he believes it may have hurt that the owners weren't more involved.

"The owners, you have to follow the team every day," he said.

While Liverpool's Premier League campaign begins against Arsenal on Aug. 15, the five-time European champions host Rabotnicki on Thursday in the Europa League's third qualifying round, leading 2-0 from the first leg.

"I can only hope if the club changes hands it goes to a group of people who have the club's fortune and future at heart and that they will do the right thing by the club," Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson said. "If a new owner comes in it is very important he makes clear to the supporters of this club, a worldwide institution, that they are buying it for the right reasons."

Kirdi, who says he has worked as a senior consultant with AIG in the Middle East, is still active in soccer as a coach and has many contacts through his playing days and work with FIFA, the sport's governing board.

He declined to discuss many other personal details, particularly about his family, citing privacy, but he has been active on the business front, recently negotiating to buy six CRJ1000 aircraft from Bombardier.

The list price for each of the 100-passenger jets is $43.95 million.

Kirdi says his efforts to generate business is his way of giving back to his adopted country.

"I want to give something good for Canada, to return what they give me -- good health, good security. They give me everything."

He says he chose Canada because he felt at home here.

"I've visited all the world, believe me. North, south, Africa, Europe, the United States, Middle East -- I like Canada in general and Quebec especially.

"When my airplane arrived at the Montreal airport, I opened my heart because this is my country."

The Chinese government fund represented by Kenny Huang has spent the past fortnight raising precisely the amount of cash required to finance a bid for Liverpool. Sources have confirmed to Digger that the China Investment Corporation, the sovereign wealth fund to the world's most populous nation, is the organisation being fronted by Huang, who yesterday admitted interest in bidding for Liverpool.

In a series of trades since 19 July, CIC has sold $558m of shares in Morgan Stanley, equating to £351.4m. That sum is equivalent to Liverpool's debt to the nearest decimal place, and is exactly the number insiders say has been quoted to interested parties as the sale price.

China Daily, the English-language arm of the Chinese state media, reported yesterday: "China Investment Corp, the Chinese sovereign wealth fund that bought a 9.9% stake in Morgan Stanley in 2007, sold $90.5m of shares in the investment bank on 30 July, bringing the total amount divested in the last two weeks to about $558m."

Although sovereign wealth funds have enormous values of assets under management, cash is generally tied up in equity and bond markets. This requires liquidation by share sales before major new investments can be made. It is therefore hugely significant that the £351.4m number is also equivalent to Liverpool's debt, suggesting that CIC is shifting its assets ahead of an offer for the five-times European Cup winners.

It also indicates that despite the ambitions of the Anfield club's chairman, Martin Broughton, to generate a return for Tom Hicks and George Gillett, China is refusing to reward them for their three-and-a half-year ownership of the club. The Americans' capacity to dictate terms is further reduced by the fact that there are few other credible bidders preparing to compete with Huang and CIC.

Even those involved in the sale process have dismissed the announcement yesterday from Yahya Kirdi, the former Syrian footballer with business links in Canada, of his intention to compete with Huang for Liverpool. Kirdi has previously talked of his interest but is said not to have meaningfully pursued it, but his interest could raise the price that current owners are looking for. The Rhone Group has also re-emerged as a possible interested party. But although it is regarded as being financially capable of mounting a bid, the private equity firm has come to the table before, having looked at a minority-stake investment in March. But it did not go through with the deal.

Huang confirmed for the first time yesterday he had contacted Liverpool's brokers in the sale – who together are Broughton and Barclays's investment-banking division, Barcap – to "register interest". He did state he "has made no formal bid", however CIC's cash-raising exercise demonstrates it is in a position to make an approach at any time.

In that event the red half of Merseyside might be concerned about the impact of direct investment from the Chinese government in their club. But in anticipation of negative reaction to its world-wide investment activities, CIC's website states: "CIC strives to contribute to the prosperity and development of local economies.

It adds: "CIC usually does not seek an active role in the companies in which it invests nor attempts to influence those companies' operations. CIC seeks long-term, stable, sustainable, and risk-adjusted return."

Although the message of prudence, at a time when CIC's dumping of £531.4m of Morgan Stanley shares has conspicuously not generated any money for transfer activity, might dishearten fans, it should not be interpreted as a lack of team investment. CIC would be purchasing a debt-free club and would be capable of taking out smaller, more affordable loans to finance team strengthening this summer.

And after the years of chaos associated with the unsustainable debt run up under Hicks and Gillett, that would no doubt be a welcome relief to Liverpool fans, as will the fact CIC is happy with Roy Hodgson being the manager.

05 Aug 2010 02:28:01
It seems now that Kenny Huang is back in the running to buy liverpool football club,hours after saying they he has not made a formal bid for the club.The deal is meant to be backed by cic(the chinese government)if the deal was to go ahead Liverpool would not only be the richest football club in the world but the richest sports team in the world.
Lets hope that King Kenny(kenny Huang) takes over.
This story has just emerged about an hour ago

In an amazing twist regarding the Javier Mascherano saga, reports have emerged in Italy claiming that Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is set to demand Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o as part of any deal to take Mascherano to Inter.

Hodgson is in the market for a new striker to take the strain of Fernando Torres, and despite having new signing Milan Jovanovic, David N'Gog, Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel in the ranks, he still feels he could do with more firepower in the final third.

Reports coming out of Italy claim Hodgson may be looking for a package of £20m rated striker Samuel Eto'o plus up to £5m in order to meet Liverpool's £25m valuation of the Argentine holding midfielder. However Rafa Benitez may only be willing to do a straight swap deal involving the striker but Liverpool are adamant that their valuation is to be met before selling Mascherano.

Interestingly, Inter Milan may be tempted to do a deal as Samuel Eto'o has expressed his will to play as a striker this season, following his role on the right last season. Eto'o would surely relish the opportunity to play at Anfield in front of the Liverpool fans who he has openly admired, and star striker Fernando Torres. Lack of Champions League football would not be an issue for the Cameroonian, provided it was only temporary.

If such a deal went through, it would leave Inter Milan with enough money set aside to step up their persuit of Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi who would be keen on a move to Serie A, for around £18m.

The Chinese Government is the mystery backer behind a bid for Liverpool Football Club, The Times can reveal. China's overseas investment arm China Investment Corporation (CIC), which already owns a stake in Canary Wharf, is funding the bid fronted by the sports tycoon Kenny Huang for one of Britain's biggest sporting names. The debt-laden club is expected to change hands this month and last night the Chinese appeared to be in pole position to win a three-way takeover battle. The other bidders are a wealthy Kuwaiti family and an American private equity group. Liverpool's lender, the Royal Bank of Scotland, forced the club's unpopular American owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, to put it up for sale in April. A number of potential foreign buyers have been circling, but until now the role of the Communist Government was unknown. The acquisition would be just a tiny piece of China's vast global investment plan.

to the guy who said this

Steve Harris(iron maiden) to leave down the bass guitar and sign a 4 year contract with Liverpool fc...At 50+ he is still a better player than lucas

Back in his day im sure he had the talent to be a great player ive seen him play and for his age he is decent, but he is a hardcore west ham fan i doubt we could sign him lol

away from all the transfer guff i keep seeing posts about possible LFC lineups and a considerable amount have Aquilani along side Gerrard.... am i the only person who feels Shelvey looks more like an LFC player than Aquilani could ever hope to be?? I think Shelvey looked comfortable and assured on the ball.... Aquilani lacks pace and strength two key attributes for the EPL... does anyone else agree?
JNS YNWA)

I kind of agree with you, I think shelvey looks a good player, I think he would work better than Lucas next to gerrard. Another good point about shelvey is that he dosent need to go out on loan to another side to get used to first team football because he has been playing first team football at charlton since he was 16.
On the aqualani, I think he's a good player but he is more the attacking kind of player who likes to get in to the box, however he does need a regular run of games to get more comfortable with the prem style. I would certainly like to keep him as it gives us options, which is something we haven't really had for a while, but I suppose it depends on the formation were gonna play.

Ed this article from the Liverpool Daily Post may give the biggest insight into what is about to unfold, and it may have been the case all along that someone on the inside let out the involvement of Huang to discredit the bid! Read and consider.

"With most takeovers, the deal is done before it gets made public."

"In some cases – Royal Liver currently being a case in point – news of a potential deal becomes public, and interested parties get the chance to swarm around the bidders. But the curiosity surrounding such deals is nothing compared to the frenzy of gossip and speculation that surrounds any takeover bid for a football club."

"That's particularly true when it comes to Liverpool FC, with its passionate worldwide support."

"The merest hint of a fragment of a takeover rumour swiftly becomes a global story – one where everyone has their spokespeople, yet nobody will comment."

"But what is clear from the events of the past few days is that the bid fronted by Chinese sports entrepreneur Kenny Huang – backed by a sovereign wealth fund – is one that is being taken very seriously by Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton and his advisers, Barclays Capital."

"If Huang and his consortium can pay off the debts that hang around the club's shoulders, and can kick-start plans for a new stadium in Stanley Park, then a deal would clearly be good news for Liverpool FC."

"But what could be even more interesting is what a Chinese-led takeover could mean for the region as a whole. Merseyside, with its long history of links to China, has been fighting for Chinese investment for some time."

"The most high-profile example of that is Liverpool's presence at the Shanghai Expo, where it is the only UK city represented. As our story today shows, that presence in Shanghai looks to be starting to pay dividends."

"Liverpool Vision and the Northwest Development Agency are following up "more than 70 serious enquiries" from the Expo. And an unnamed Chinese property tycoon who wants to invest £1bn in the UK will soon talk to representatives from Peel Holdings and Liverpool Vision about opportunities in Merseyside."

"But a Huang-led takeover could open new pathways for investment."

"Huang would bring connections. He worked with Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander, for example, to take Chinese basketball superstar Yao Ming to the NBA in 2002."

"His company, Sports Pro Media China, has helped develop links between Chinese sponsors and US teams including the Rockets and the Cleveland Cavaliers – in which he is a stakeholder. Huang, who founded sports investment company QSL, also works to market baseball's New York Yankees in China."

"Huang's focus would, at first, be on Liverpool FC and not the city of Liverpool. But, if Liverpool FC becomes a household name in China, then the city would surely become a more attractive destination for investors."

"As Colin Ling, from Liverpool Chinese Business Association, says: "The profile of the city would go up dramatically among the business community in China."

"And we must remember that Huang is not funding this bid from his own pockets – he has investors behind him who could be of great interest to Merseyside."

"In the short term, Huang's backers are investing in Liverpool FC. But once they are in the city, they could surely be persuaded to consider other investments in Merseyside."

"So the benefits of a Huang takeover could be massive. But, as yet, the detail of the bid is under wraps, despite all our media scrutiny – so we must sit patiently and wait for the red mist to clear."

While I will hold my hands up on refuting Huang's initial bid as being the wrong one for the club, as he himself clearly has no funding. If the man has been able to put together a bid that is backed to the tune of the figures mentioned, then I'll gladly show my arse down Arkles Lane on day of your choice!

Not a rumour, just how I feel. I'm a Liverpool fan from Surrey. Have been for 25 years since I was 8. YES, I started supporting Liverpool because at the time they were winning everything in sight. The reason I have continued to support them through thick and thin can be summed up in the quote below:

"There is something that they call "The Liverpool Way". It is an ethos, an unwritten constitution based on principles such as humility, modesty and continuity. From the boardroom to the boot room, there was a shared belief that Liverpool were a club that should be seen and not heard."

This club is in my bones, my heart and my soul. WE, the supporters, ARE Liverpool FC. - Pure class...

Hi all reds fans.Kirdi will not be buying the club, According to a source from one of the papers cant quote names sorry.Anyway theres 3 firm offers in place,purslow,broughton,nash and ayre are in talks on which one to settle on.Kirdi is very good friends with hicks son and is only trying to use the media in order to raise the price.The 3 members on the board of directors can out vote g&h.So its really up to the above mentioned to do the best for the club.
The third bid in is from the Sheikh Khalifa that tried to buy the club before, hicks scrupperd that deal so Khalifa is using an investment company to stay away from the american owners.The mostly likely outcome is kenny huang who has distanced himself because of the financal implications that might result in being to eager on purchasing the club.Liverpool should enter the premier leagues 10 day inspection period.either tommorow or friday.To insure the takeover happens before the arsenal game.YWNA.RED TED

To everyone who keeps saying that Christian Poulsen has signed for Liverpool because "It says so on his Wikipedia page" you're either seeing things or are just quoting the guy that (wrongly) said this in the first place!!
