Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

He's such a girl, and a girl with a sense of humour bypass.

fresh off the presses.........we will all be relived to hear that:

"A move to Liverpool has to be for life, not just for Christmas," Jordan Henderson says.

"When I signed for Liverpool, I definitely wanted it to be long term. I want to make sure that when I am given opportunities I work hard and try to take them.

"It might be easier to throw a tantrum and walk away from a big club than fight to make it work."

So now we know what Jordan didn't put on his Santa list.

If I was a cynic I'd say looking at the parts in bold that Jordan isn't expecting to be present at the club Christmas party in 2013.

According to Tony Barrett we're in advanced talks to
re-sign Tom Ince from Blackpool...

I don't mind having the player back, but with the player comes his Dad, who was the cause of the problems last time. Without him, Tom Ince would have probably signed a new contract and still been here.

However, all that's irrelevant - is signing a player like Tom Ince going to get us back into the top four, and then help us stay there?

I say that because I see no proof of FSG having the cash or being prepared to spend the cash (whichever it is) to assemble a squad to get us back into the top four and then improve that squad sufficently so that we don't drop back out again, within a season or three (do a Spurs).

20 million and he's ours.

mind, if we act quickly, we'll not have to fight off united, city, and real madrid.

I keep thinking, is there any form of embarrassment that the club has not put itself through in recent years.

almost bankruptcy, yankee carpet-baggers, buying carroll at 35 million, buying average players at ridiculous transfer fees, having to then lend out such misfits because others cannot afford their wages, buying high price players who are out on long term injuries, sacking CL winning bosses and appointing shi.te, appointing a sponsorship manager as chief executive, and now paying 5 million to buy back a kid that you let go for peanuts one year ago.

like I mean, is there anything I have missed.  Did we turn down the Beatles at some early 60s audition, citing guitar based bands are on the way out.

Karma can be a bitch but when did we run over her cat?

Agreed Dude, we seem to be doing our best to rival Ronnie Barker, Eric Morecome, Eric Sykes and Peter Sellars in terms of comic genius.

I don't blame the manager in this respect and I'd rather he didn't do the nose removing manoeuvre, where Ince is concerned, but it would have been nice for him to have still had the choice of selecting the player, but where Ince is concerned I think his Dad had by far the biggest influence on the situation than anyone at the club.

i haven;t followed the ince stuff much, Tes.  But I could imagine the father having a lot to say about things.

and for that reason, I would be quite happy to keep the inces out of anfield.

but i can also imagine sterling, and his advisors/family, getting restless at many junctures.

why can't modern players get on with it, and then open a pub (or off license), like they did in our day.

Liverpool are considering a January move for Feyenoord's £3.5m-rated defender Stefan de Vrij, although that would be dependent on Sebastián Coates going out on loan.

why the fig-leaf would Sebastian Coates be going out on loan?

have we bought another dud?

And I note that the Daily Mail is running with the same story.

Speaking of Coates. What do you make of him, Dude?

I haven't seen enough of him, Martin, to form a decent opinion.

But it concerns me, that after being at the club a fair while now (a year and a half), that he has featured so little in the premiership.

Is there doubts about his abilities, among our backroom staff.  I dunno. 

I'd like to see more of him, to form an opinion myself.

You, what are your thoughts on the lad?
