I've just seen Robinho outside Anfield. No, wait a minute. .no, it isn't Robinho. .it's Samuel Eto'o! Yes! It's got to be Samuel Eto'o. He's got a bag of chips in his hand, but maybe he likes chips. Oh, look there's Lionel Messi and David Villa walking into Anfield. I'm sure it's them. Oh, hang on, they're walking past Anfield. Now they've got on a bus. Maybe, they'll come back. It's Samuel Eto'o again! He's sort of walking back towards Anfield, so maybe he'll be a potential signing for the Mighty Reds!
Oh, wait. My friend's just come back. He says it's just a bloke called Neil. Anyway, I'll just wait here in my car for the next two hours and report on more sensational developments at Anfield!
Liverpool will move for Jeremy Menez (10mil), the polish winger (8mil) and Eidur Gudjohnsen (5mil)
Leaving will be Jermaine Pennant (6mil) Andrey Voronin (4mil) and Steve Finnan (1mil)
I work on the groundstaff at Tynecastle, and I know for a FACT that Romanov is that annoyed with Steve Banks he is sacking him this week, and taking his place working with the youngsters will be Paul Gadd. Gadd has a lot of experience with this in the Far East, and is eager to try his hand in Britain. 100% will happen.
This site is called football–rumours.com not statetheobvious.com so why are people reading stories on news sites and posting them on here. Yes we all know Berbatov was on the bench at the weekend which suggests he will be moving on.
As for the Villa fan who said Barry wont be leaving cos he went to school with Abondahor the reason he hasnt left is cos the club wont sell him for a reasonable fee not cos he didnt want to go. Liverpool only paid £18m for Masch 6 months ago why would they pay the same for Barry. If a move is made in January it will be for less as the player will only have 18 months left on his contract (despite his eligability for the CL).
And to the chelsea fan who claims Liverpool cant sign any PSV player and that Chelsea are making History, 2 points.
1) Players and humans not items and can not be sold without consent. If he doesnt want to go to Chelsea they cant force him to sign for Chelsea regardless of any feeder agreement if he wants to sign for Liverpool he will.
2) History is earned not bought, the 3 runners up medals your players earned last season will never give your club history – well suppose the team could be remembered as losers. 3 Leagues and 1 cup winners cup leaves your "Massive Club" miles behind clubs like Nottingham Forrest. Maybe you would appreciate history more if you actually had one!
