Parry and Benitez have 'positive talks' - decypher!

Chief Executive Rick Parry and manager Rafael Benitez have vowed to 'move forward together' after holding clear the air talks at Anfield. It had been suggested the working relationship between the two had become strained over Liverpool's activity in the transfer market.
 
But with the talks being described as 'positive', Parry and Benitez are continuing to work on strengthening the squad before the window closes at the end of the month.
 
Benitez said: "Clear the air talks have taken place. It was a positive discussion and we will now move forward together.
 
Parry added: "I can confirm that we had a friendly and positive meeting and we're moving forward." 


Obviously political-speak. What does it mean in plain English? Sounds like a feeble attempt to patch up obvious differences over Barry. I just hope that Rafa manages to get his 2nd preference - Albert Riera. Is this guy any good and would he be a better choice than GB?
Cheers,
