I would not be shocked if both Gerrard and Torres played on Sat...

I would. Gerrard has said he won't be fit and Torres will be out for 2-3 weeks from a week last Sunday. It would be stupid of Rafa to force players back who were not 100%.

I think we will beat them! An Alonso, Masc midfield with Torres and Keane ahead of them, and Skrtel and Carra behind - is an impressive unit, add Riera and Babel to the wings and its a half decent team (but obviously kuyt will get the nod ahead of babel).

I am quietly confident even without the captain.

Burt, Torres is injured. But, I would expect Riera to come on at some point and give us some much-needed width. And I expect Keane will come good. We should also be trying to wind up Tevez as he seems to have a short fuse. Oh, so has Rooney so with a bit of luck they could be down to 9 if we play our cards right.  :D

Hello all,

am new to the forum so hello in advance!

For me the name that stands out is Hiddink, most of his sides have a good team ethic and an attack minded philosophy.

If we look closer to home, I am keeping an eye on how well Gary Mac does at Leeds, and quite impressed at the way Gareth Southgate goes about his business.

Welcome Burt. I hadn't realised the movie business was so quiet!  ;D

I too would like to see Gary Mac back at Anfield (he turned down the reserves manager job because of his wife's health) but I'm not in any great hurry. Let's see how things transpire if and when the Dubai buy-out goes through and more money is injected into the club.

Whilst I would like Rafa to stay I don't feel the same about Rick Parry. He's messed up a few times in recent years most famously with the Gerrard contract negotiations straight after Istanbul.

You're a liar and a fraud and in need of some professional help.

That comment has just got you reported to the moderator. Why can't you just think before you post?  ::)

Lets not argue here. I have told you what I know if I am proven to be wrong I will accept the abuse but if I am proven to be right we will all be happy. What have I got to gain from winding you all up?

Skippy mate, even if this doesn't happen I won't lose faith in you. Of course you have to protect your source. Whether you're a spy or a journo that goes without saying.  :D

All I want to know is did you use the torture routine in Casino Royale to get this info or did you use the services of a large busty blonde?  :o

Hehe, it gets worse.

To quote Basil Fawlty... "you are a waste of space". Either post something constructive or belt up! God, anyone would think you were a Manc in disguise!


Why come here as a newcomer and instantly start castigating people for their posts? If you don't agree with Skippy then just find a forum where you can share your opinions with like-minded people.

OTOH, you could disagree with what's been said but in a far more reasonable way. With the sort of reputation you've now got no-one is going to take you seriously anyway.

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!  ::)

Whilst I am cautiously optimistic this buyout will go through I am concerned about how the stadium project will go.

Despite all the negativity towards G&H they did at least recognise the immense value of the Kop and the redesign gave great prominence to it.

If the Sheikh does take over how will the club ensure that any stadium redesign will take the Kop into account. H&G should be given credit for that at least.

What I don't want to see is a generic 75,000 seater stadium bereft of any soul. The new Anfield must retain its soul - it's one of our strongest magnets and to lose that would be a crying shame.

Hmmm, The Times say's one thing and the Telegraph another. The Telegraph's is the later report (4pm).

Skippy, have you got an update for us please?


they don't make  tea towels as good as these, in north east

 :D dude, you crack me up! Keep up the good work!


So you're saying that rather than DIC it will be a purchase by a private individual. Presumably Amanda Stavely is the front-lady for this and will be the chief negotiator with H&G with a seat on the board if she's successful.

It's certainly a buyer's market at the moment be it houses or footie clubs. Let's hope that Hicks in particular is not the stubborn mule he has shown himself to be to date. The Telegraph are reporting a potential profit of £75M for each of them and in the current climate that would represent a good piece of business for them.

Assuming this sale goes through in say the next 12 weeks would anyone care to comment on how that would leave the stadium build. I guess new architects would need to be hired and then once a design is in place a fresh submission for planning approval. I'm not trying to get too far ahead of myself here but just trying to get a handle on how it affects the stadium should the sale go through.

I'm old and wrinkled enough not to get excited about this because we've been here before with media reports of an imminent sale. That's no disrespect to you Skippy - just my opinion of newspapers - even quality ones - and what they'll do to fill the column inches.

I told you that you could rely on Rick!  :P

You can take your tongue out of your cheek now dude!  ;) With the reputation of RP and our owners were you not getting just a tad worried?

So now we need a good right winger in the Jan window. Who's going to start the thread?  ;D

LFC have just announced the Riera deal is done!  ;D Why do they put us through all this torture? Phew!

The Riera deal looks to be dependent on Rafa having to offload certain players so the Yanks don't have to put any of their own money in! Tight swine!  >:(

I would expect Pennant to go before they announce the Riera deal. I just see any other reason for the delay.

The sudden takeover by an Abu Dhabi group of Manchester City should have all the alarm bells ringing in Anfield.

They clearly have huge amounts of money as shown by today's outrageous bid for Berbatov. Their aims are to not just break into the top four but to win the Premiership. As I type this they are lining up bids for David Villa and Mario Gomez. They clearly mean business.

This places Liverpool (as the lowest of the top 4) in a dangerous position as clearly our financial muscle is limited under Hicks & Gilett. It's vital that DIC should make a bid for the club this autumn so that come the January window we have the resources to strengthen our squad. If none of this happens we could well slip out of the top four with all the ramifications that brings!  :o

What a day!
