All these Turan rumours are garbage. Sure he has potential, but I don't see other teams after him. We are in dire straights & need players with Premier League experience to get stuck in & fight for the cause. I don't think it would be a smart move buying untried players at this time!

Maybe LFC scouts don't base their proposals to the manager on Youtube footage.

It's amazing just how many thousands of Liverpool fans are apparently avid followers of the Turkish League.

Don't get me wrong, Turan may well be a brilliant player, but I don't believe many (if any) of the folk on here have seen more than an hour of him play.

I've read probably every post on this LFC site since it was intoduced.

I've never read one about how or why they wouldn't want Arda Turan.

If we can all see it what the h*ck is LFC waiting for?

Ed has got a point about Babel and Gala in maybe a swap? Frank Rijkaard the current Gala manager is a big fan of Babel (Don't understand why though?) but yeh maybe with the money and Arda's big fan and NESV's ideas of getting younger players its looks possible only thing is if Roy will go for him.

Fingers Crossed. We all want Arda!

new team

aml:mata
cm:gerrard kaka defour

what do you think good or what
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
All looks good except for Vidic. You would have to play him in Torre's team everyday in training.

Kaka will not come to LFC IF he ever leave's Real then he will go to Chelsea.

In MY opinion, if RH is still here come January he'll buy:

Toivenon (12m) Obvious choice, clinical striker and will be happy to wait the required 1-2 weeks sitting on the bench before Torres gets injured.

N'Zogbia (10m) A badly needed type of player that's able to deliver in good crossed.

Danny Murphy (4m) I don't know why, it just looks like one of Roy's stupid buys (*cough*Poulsen*cough*)

Brede Hangeland (7m) He admired him at Fulham and it's the first the defender that comes to mind, considering RH wouldn't touch Taiwo with a barge-pole because of the price.


If Roy is ousted, which I'm fearing is likely then I think we should go for:

Turan (11m+Babel) ed was talking about it and it really makes sense to me.

Toivenon (12m) As stated above.

Taiwo (13m) Good, strong defender, would probably give Agger and Skrtel the kick up the backside needed for them to try harder.

Defour (8m) Protege to Gerrard, would suit Liverpool in my opinion and is desperate to jump ship from Liege, preferrably to the EPL.

Total: 44m

OUTS
Lucas: (8m) Palermo
Poulsen: (3m if new manager comes in) Danish club.
Babel: (Turan deal if new manager comes in) Galatasaray
Aurelio: (5m) Brazilian club.
Kyrgiakos (2m) Panathanaikos
Maxi (7m) Spanish club.

Total: 25m

Forget this talk of Kaka, if he can't cut it in Spain what makes you think he will cut it here.

Even though he is playing in Spain his success was in Italy, and every big player that has come there has never quite lived up to expectation. Few examples Shevshenco, Veron.

My opinion we should turn to the African talent playing in France. We missed out on Asomah Gyan. But Gervinho is killing it in France, Taye Taiwo guy is a unit.

Alonso to return home. . . In short the guy is quaaality.

ED have you heard that theres any truth that Xabi wants to come back? What about Kaka (lmao)? He's lost half a yard anyway.And also that Ciise is being watched in my opinion Ciise is just the same as Babel quick in the feet not so quick in the brain or lacks a footballing brain what you think?

{Editor's Note: Owners rarely provide funds in the way you think. Coaches typically identify a player they want, discuss it with the powers that be and then approval would be given to approach a club about a player. Mascherano is sold - there is no money from that transaction - it was spent during the summer. Arda seems a good possibility out of the players you have listed.}
Why do you think it is good possibility?what reason?Liverpool's scout told you?

{Editor's Note: Arda has repeatedly been linked to Liverpool and has on several occasions made it clear to the press that he wishes to play for the club. He is of a value that Liverpool could afford and his present side may well be interested in taking Ryan Babel in part exchange.}

History repeating itself (H&G versus DIC - 2007)
Major players from the far/ middle east are once again ignored in favour of small time Americans without the resources to take the club forward.
Brown envelopes being passed under the table I reckon.

SMALL TIME AMERICANS?

NESV is made up of 18 members 2 of them are worth £600M+ each and the other 16 between £300M&£500M
All of the members are 100% behind JWH in taken LFC back to the top

Took my car into a dealership yesterday and the salesman offered me £4,000 - what a cheek!
I believe my car is worth at least £8,000 so I demanded the salesman be sacked so my son could have his job. If he isn't fired I'll sue the garage. I'll just hang on to my car until someone offers me £8,000 so I can pay off the £6,000 Finance and keep some cash in my pocket.
Ring any bells?

Not really mate because it's not your dealership to start with! Big difference!

Both sides want the best deal. The car dealer is trying to buy as cheaply as possible and the you want to sell as high as possible. G&H are no different than NESV in this negotiation.

The Times Football Editor, Tony Evans, has spoken to Anfield Road this evening and made it absolutely clear that he was both "disgusted" and "furious" to see his name used by the notorious so-called Liverpool fansite KopTalk in their latest 'exclusive'.

The KopTalk website is well-known amongst Liverpool supporters for its financial exploitation of the Hillsborough disaster, for selling badly-faked and extortionately-priced signed Liverpool memorabilia and even for ticket touting. It is also notorious for making up stories about the club and its players - often potentially damaging - and in many cases demanding payment before allowing access to the stories.

Even if we had the money, Kaka would not come to us.
I wish some people would wake up and look at whats happening. We will finf out on Tuesday whether Broughton is a savour or a lieing Bas* *d like G&H. What ever happens next friday we will still need to sell before we can buy in January; providing we are able to do this as we might now also have a transfer ban as well in January to contend with.

The guy who said about swapping torres for carlos tevez plus 20m is talking sense, tevez leads the line really well on his own and never stops working, has starting to get goals week in week out also. torres looks like he has just backed a 3 legged donkey in the grand national so far this season, and spends more time on the treatment table. its great having a 50m striker who plays 3 games then misses 5 isn't it. then wen he does play everyone expects him to score a goal out of nothing, then he gets slated by the press for not playing well.
anyone notice how his form has gone since he had his hair cut?

This is far from over guys - NESV's bid has been gazumped. Temasek Holdings and another wealthy consortium from the far east are about to start a bidding war for the club.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Well this couldn't be more wrong, as NESV's bid has been accepted. That means the bidding is over so no there will not be a 'bidding war'.

And it's not all about whoever has the most money. Next time you read the daily sport, instead of only getting the word Timasek out of it, you should maybe look up the criteria for being eligable to own a football club."

Not strictly true. NESV's bid was accepted by the current board and depends on (1) that board remaining in place and (2) it being accepted that it was a fair valuation. Were a rival to enter with a far higher bid it would strengthen Hicks' argument that the valuation was too low and the board were negligent. If this were the case all prior acceptances of bids could be ruled as void and a fresh bidding war could therefore commence. Hicks went to court to get a few extra million for his other sporting franchises in the US and he's simply doing the same here. I'd wager Henry knows this and may already have factored that in to his bid.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The key to this is that both bids were accepted. The other group could strike a deal with the shareholders - as Broughton has already described BOTH as fantastic bids.

As a young reds fan who, at 14, has only watched since the 2007 season due to the US's lack of game coverage, i'm a little lost as to what is going on. Do H&G have a chance of winning this court case, ed? Also, who should we buy in JAn and the summer if we're taken over? {ed's note - if Mr Broughton is correct they have no chance, but if he is wrong then they have every chance of winning.}

Broughton has also confirmed there is a clause in Roy Hodgson's contract allowing any new owner of the club to replace him and not have to pay up all of the remaining years on his deal.

He told ESPNsoccernet: "Roy knew when he signed up from Fulham that we were in the process of finding new owners, it was not a surprise to him.

"He was fully reconciled with the possibility there would be an ownership chance and the risk involved with that.

Broughton admitted he didn't know the specifics of Hodgson's contract, but he had a fair idea of the details of the exit clause.

"I suggested that the clause relates to Hodgson being paid a full year's salary within 28 days should the new owners want to bring in their own manager, " revealed Broughton.

"I don't have Roy's contract in front of me, so I can't comment on that, but it is something like that in his contract."

Hicks and Gillette will get nothing from this court case, they signed and agreed not to frustrate the sale and only Broughton can alter the board, RBS effectively own the club so they are the majority shareholder, they will say that they are happy with the boards business , and they way it was conducted , the courts will see hicks signed and made agreements and broke them , hicks will hope for administration , he knows he aint getting anymore cash or time , RBS want them out and want their money. nesv have agreed to pay the debt. RBS will want to to go through , the Premier league will want liverpool to regian its place back at the top , its good for the league, so they want this to happen too , bye bye hicks your robbing scamming nazi scum

This is far from over guys - NESV's bid has been gazumped. Temasek Holdings and another wealthy consortium from the far east are about to start a bidding war for the club.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Well this couldn't be more wrong, as NESV's bid has been accepted. That means the bidding is over so no there will not be a 'bidding war'.

And it's not all about whoever has the most money. Next time you read the daily sport, instead of only getting the word Timasek out of it, you should maybe look up the criteria for being eligable to own a football club.

" Story is.

Broughton and Purslow were p&ssed the Kop fans stuck up a flag with them and the two yanks in a bad light.
Broughton and Purslow then decided that enough was enough and they really arnt the enemies of Liverpool. To prove this, there plan was to get rid of the old regime and bring in a new one.
Hicks was pissed that broughton wanted to sell the club to a stable bidder but at half the cost of the asking price so Hicks retaliated by dismissing him and the board.
The board ain't going down without a fight so they sell the club. Enhance their reputation and secure a future.
To play Hicks they needed public support. They new this was the best way to become folk hero's and gain support. All this is planned since blackpool match.
Hicks is livvid with the board and fans and now wants to strip the club of all assets including selling it's stars at cut prices.
Expect a dirty fight from both party's with mr red sox coming in towards the end. Still twists n turns yet guys"


really yet Broughton has publicly said he's been meeting NESV in Boston, London and Liverpool for the last couple of months and he's also had time to do the same with the Asian bidder

Yet you seem to be able to get inside Broughton and Purslows heads and know what they think!

such crap

"Broughton and Purslow are working for RBS, not the fans. The fans are just 3rd party observers. If RBS auction lfc off could the fans put in a bid. no one would value the club at 288m once it in administration and deducted 9 points. The bargin hunters will be out"


The amount of time it would require to organise such a large scale operation, not just getting all the fans who've signed up to actually send their money but also the new organisational structure, who'd front it and be in charge, how much would they be paid plus how would all this be decided with so many stakeholders then involved means its neigh on impossible at this stage, unfortunetly its a logistical nightmare even though it would be fantastic.

Listen guys i am writing this because most of you are concerned about John henry's wealth, his wealth really does not matter in the takeover but he's worth $860m if your that bothered.

However he is investing into Liverpool with 15 other top businessmen who all know what they are doing the reason we only ever get interviews from John w.henry is because he is the leading shareholder in NESV (new england sports ventures).

So lets do a example say hodgson says he wants drogba and chelsea say they want 40m and all of the investors agree that he is the type of player we need they will all give cash so 16 divided by 40 = about 2.1m so therefor they will all chip in 2.1m.

Anyhow we do not need a sugar daddy have any of you heard of the 2012 rule? you can only spend as much as you make and manchester city already spend more than they make in wage bills alone! if you spend more then you make you are not allowed to compete in europe.

There for we are getting the best deal possible top businessmen who know how to run a business and they are all about winning so lets get behind the board at this court case and make sure these win!

SOS lost a lot of respect from a lot of liverpool fans after there personal vendetta against purslow. Now they are kicking off because the prospective owners won't speak to them.

SOS is beginning to do more harm than good in my opinion.


They're also planning to go down to london and protest outside the courts next week!

What a terrible terrible idea, they don't represent all of us fans ( it would be a sham to have them on the board), but they could ruin this takeover for us all

Ed- when Hicks and Gillette were sold our beloved club by Moores and Parry there was another Arab bid on the table. This I understand was not based on a leveraged buyout situation.

I believe that there was also an Arab bid this time round over which the NESV bid has been preferrred. Is there a reluctance to sell to wealthy Arabs? A hint of racism perhaps? {ed's note - not at all mate, this is not about racism, the choice was made because the Americans have a proven track record in this area.}

"unsigned asked at 09 Oct 2010 00:17:56:

"Can someone tell me what hicks and gillete get out of this court case because from what i can see if they lose the case they will have spent loads of money on loyers and other stuff. and if they win they keep control of the club and ccant pay back debts so lose more money to intrest. i am probably wrong which is why im asking"

Ideally they are looking for agreement that the Board acted illegally in selling the club. Really anything that would buy them some time would be a good result. In terms of money the costs would be a couple of days of a Barristers time only - the legal staff are being paid for as a matter of course in the day-to-day running of their businesses.

Most fans seem happy with the prospective new owners as am I but I worried just how they can deliver wot we need so soon. The wealth of Mr. Henry is soposidly around £550m-1b depending on who you believe. I can't see him parting with most of that to repay our debt £300m and funding the building of our new stadium £400m and finally giving the manager the absolute neccessary funds to rebuild the squad to challenge for the title. He isn't rich enough. We need all that doin as quickly as possible or we will fall further behind the top teams. Wot so you think ed? {ed's note - what is with this obsession with wealth? This is a company, Henry is just a figurehead for it, his wealth is completely irrelevant, as is the wealth of the other people in the consortium. The company has enough to buy the club and clear its debts off, everything else will be self funded by the club itself, like it should be.}

Just been on NESV web page where they welcome liverpool to the sporting group family, nice article i thought! then i came to the bottom of the page where a lot of our fans are leaving there comments , and with this is a redsox fan with the greeneyed monster desease proper spitting his dummy out because he thinks that liverpool are leeching money from the redsox
thus depriving them to spend on their team, i wonder how many yanks have this attitude , and surely if they do purchase us the budgets will be completely separate?
what do you think ed?

Couldnt the fans revive Share liverpool scheme, fans ownership of liverpool (www.shareliverpoolfc.co.uk) isn't time that we made a bid for the club esp if it does end up in RBS hands.

Rbs will not put the club into administration as it is easier to sell the club to an already agreed buyer rather than let it go through a possibly messy senario such as administration
just my opinion.what u think ed. {ed's note - RBS will put it in administration if they have to. Anything rather than loan more money to H&G.}

09 Oct 2010 00:10:39
I am pretty sure that the judge in charge of the pending court case will see quite clearly that hicks is only trying to stall for time to line his own pockets and he has not tried his upmost to re pay the debt in time to stop further debt in penalty fees, thus proving that the board were acting in the best interests of the shareholders etc by finding a suitable buyer who can clear the rbs debt, before the penalty can be applied, freeing LFC from the massive amount owed and putting us in a profitable situation and strengthening any shareholders situation.
and on a personal note lets all chip in 50p each and buy a couple of ferry tickets to get the b'stards to france and hitch a ride home from there. . . .good riddance H&G

Broughton and Purslow are working for RBS, not the fans. The fans are just 3rd party observers. If RBS auction lfc off could the fans put in a bid. no one would value the club at 288m once it in administration and deducted 9 points. The bargin hunters will be out.

09 Oct 2010 00:05:09
I have a question. Lets say that RBS take control of the club and we are docked 9points. Will Red-Sox try to purchase the club for a lot less? say 150mill which is prob the true value of the club at the moment on the foot of the table about to be relegated 9points -3 points on l-table. Will the revise the bid to pick the club for less.

"The guy i would seriously consider to represent the fans on the board would be John Aldridge. I think he's a member of SOS/ Share Liverpool and for me relate's better to the fans than anyone i can think of. I think he would be perfect what you think ED? Blair Mayne YNWA"

I think this is possibly a good idea and it should be someone the fans hold in high esteem and who in turn holds the club in high esteem and the initial names that spring to mind as a sort of 'fans dynasty' are Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, Kevin Keegan, John Toshack, Roy Evans, John Aldridge, John Barnes, Alan Hansen, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher etc etc - that sort of calibre. Possibly a two or three year position.

RED LENIN {ed's note - not for me, players have a different viewpoint from ordinary fans, the fans rep needs to be aware of the ordinary fan's viewpoint.}

What are the chances of Purslow & Ayre staying on the board with one more person of the yanks choosing to make a three man board. They obviously have the clubs interests at heart & seem to be good professionals. I personally don't think a former player or a member of a supporters group is the answer unless they have a background in corporate business. Maybe regular press releases of the clubs finances & projects with targets would be a good option.

Seriously? ? Come on now. The deal with NESV would have taken months of negotiation and due diligence on both sides. NESV were waiting for the deadline for the bank repayment to be so close as to put a gun to H&G's head. This has been worked out to get the bank repaid, for NESV to get the club at a good price and for the club to pass to worthy owners, Gillet and Hicks getting screwed is just an added benefit.
