Dalglish will play a more prominent role in LFC,his experience of Director of football at Celtic and his managerial skills are written in history. His affinity with Sammy Lee is strong and he is a supporter of RAFA. The scouting system at LFC is abysmal and partly down to the outgoing CEO. Expect a massive shake up, in saying that why is RAFA playing Ngog instead of Pacheco. . nuts. The crowd are yearning to sing that great name on the terraces again . .DALGLISH. RAFA is now playing with the crowds affections and it will soon turn sour, the only thing left for him now is Champions league football and he knows it, can he use his get out of jail card again?. I wouldn't mind seeing the RAFA,Dalglish and Lee partnership next season even though he makes some maddening decisions.

BREAKING LIVERPOOL NEWS
Complete overhaul in the coming summer. Rafa will keep his job but not without fighting through all the calls for his resignation. There will be many changes with in the club with the enite squad being overhauled.
–Kuba (10 mil)
–Rafinha (7 mil)
–Aguero (25 mil)
–Barry (10 mil)
–Benayoun (8 mil)
Al–Kharafi and Richard Branson are both in intense talks to buy Liverpool but Al–Kharafi is the most likely as he can promise a new stadium and world class players
TM of Westbrom is to be fired after the next game when arsenal go to the hawthorns and wallop them 6–0.
Ossie Ardilles has been seen at the ground and will take over until the end of the season. Jp has buyers for the club but they are waiting until the team is relegated and will then offer a final total. The new owners will take over at the beginning of the new season and will bring in a top manager from over seas.
The 6+5 rule will not happen, im not saying this because im a gooner, but because its a restriction of human rights. none of us are limited to where we can work in the EU and how many people a business in europe can employ. the majority of clubs from all over europe will oppose it and take it to the european court of human rights if needed. this is being suggested by fifa and uefa as they know it will affect mostly english clubs as they don't like the fact were starting to become a force in euro competitions, but it just won't happen. when you think about it its a type of racism and one from blatter or platini will have to quit when they try to inforce it if not both will. . just watch and see. . onto rumours. arsenal will sign 4/5 players in summer and sell only 2.
ben arfa 14m
hart/green 5m or 8m
yes kalou is alot better than bentdner and yes with wengers way he will get kalou for less than he sells bendtner for. .
Liverpool shortlist as follows. .
Adam Johnson is a sure thing and so is keirrson appart from them 1 player will be signed from each shortlist by the new manager of lfc. my source is rafas replacment himself!
REDREPORT. . CHANGE is commin!
A report, in of all places, the Australian press has stated that Liverpool are lining up the "Special One" to take over at Anfield. The report stated that the owners are becoming increasingly dispondant over the contract talks with Rafa the Gaffer. It also stated that Mourinho is not happy in Italy and although that United are his preferred destination, Liverpool would be a good comprimise.
God help the Reds if he comes.
Okay, Parry is leaving and we have a reason to celebrate, plus Liverpool could be soon sold to Arabs. Good times ahead of LFC. Arabs will give Rafa so desperately needed funds, of course he won't have budget as big as City, but in range of United. FINALLY. Dont expect big departures, cause Barry isn't coming, so the players who will be shown the exit door are following: Itandje, Cavalieri(?), Lucas, Ngog (loan), Pennant, Voronin, either Aurelio or Dossena, second one more likely, Babel (hopefully not) and Kuyt (also I would like that he stays). Possible ins: Aguero (30 milion)– not less but not more, great relationship with Atletico; Johnson (10 milions)– Pompey is goin down; Owen (free)– fantastic choice for third striker, but Kuyt then has to go; D. Silva (24 milion) or D. Srna (16 milion)– Rafa values both players but Srna is in pole position cuz Valencia doesn't want to sell, but their financial troubles suggest otherwise, maybe even both if Babel goes; Sergio Asenjo (5–6 milion)– big potential. Lot of other players are being circulated around Anfield but are less likely. Villa is most likely staying another season in Valencia, then he will go to either City, Barcelona, Real Madrid or even United (if they don't sign Tevez or Benzema). If Agger goes which is unlikely expect David Luis (Benfica) to come. Not FACTS, 100% RUMOURS. KOP STANDS FOREVER
To the person who said olic to newcastle, that is rubish as he has signed a pre contract agreement with bayern munich. anyway, celtic will be signing austrian goal machine Marc Janko, with JVOH leaving. celtic will also sign young james mccarthy from hamilton for 1–2m. Also coming in will be talented 22 year old egyptian midfielder shikabala, check him out on youtube, hes good.
and by the way, to all the english fans, lay off the spl, it may not be great,but its all we've got, yes there are only 2 teams ever going to win it, but is that really so different to the epl the "greatest league in the world" where only 2 maybe 3 teams are ever going to win it?
With Arsenal struggling so much this season, there is for the first time pressure on Wenger. However, they don't want to sack him as they know there would be a player exodus if he was to leave. They will look to move him upstairs and bring in a young manager. If he doesn't like this, he might well end up at Real Madrid and said player exodus will happen.
If there is no Champions League then next season there will be no Robin Van Persie. And a few others will leave, namely Gallas, Bendtner, Adebayor and surprisingly Sagna. Cesc will stay for one more season, as he's still young enough to give Arsenal one more chance.
Bottom line Arsenal fans, you better start praying that either Villa or Chelsea go into a real downward spiral because no CL will put Arsenal into a huge crisis. Enjoy the Roma game, could be the last CL game for some time.
I'm the guy with the mate in the French press who knows about the 6+5 rule. The guy who just stated the obvious oppositions to the rule on here knows nothing. Like i said mate, it is not illegal because players would still be employed by the clubs, so would still be earning money. Saying it is discrimination because they are not in the first team is nonsense – do you not think reserve team players would revolt if this was the case? Bonus payments for scoring, playing etc are just bonuses (thus the name) and unless they are specifically written into a contract they are paid at the discretion of the club. Clubs with too many foreign players to give a regular run in the team would just have to sell them, or be wasting their money because they would still be paying their wages. They could keep them on if they wanted though, it's not illegal by any means. 155 of Fifa federations have already confirmed their support for 6+5 – so it looks likely it will be installed. Sepp Blatter is very big on the idea, so his reappointment would ensure it's introduction. Maybe the EPL big guns won't like the fact they have to develop their own players rather than ship them in from poorer leagues, but it can only improve the national team – so don't start crying because all your expensive toys are going back to the shop.
To the person who said about martin jol coming to tyneside. If he was to come which i very much doubt he will he won't be bringing ivica olic with him as he has signed a pre–contract agreement with bayern munich!
Ryan Babel should be sold instead of Robbie Keane. He can't dribble, he can't pass the ball, e have no ball control, he is lazy, doesn't chase for the lose ball that he lost, all possesion always end with him losing it. Wonder why benitez likes playing him so much. I would have put him back into the academy to pick up the basics. The worst player i've ever seen in a Liverpool shirt. Come on Benitez, remove your blindfold.

Paul Aldridge (Manchester City member of the board) is my uncle, and he says Manchester City will sack Hughes and Luis Filipe Scolari is the most likely candidate to take his place.He also told me Manchester City will bid for David Villa,Mashcherano,Ribery and there is a possibility of going back to Milan to finalise a deal for not only Kaka but Ronaldinho too.
As for other premier league teams :
Arsenal are set to re–sign Alexander Hleb from Barca but Bayern are also interested
Villa will put numerous bids in for Micah Richards(but Micahs dad tells me he is going nowhere)
Bolton are readyto sign Pogrenier for 6m from Zenit St. Petersburg who is currently on loan at the reebok
Chelsea will look for a permanent deal for Queresma if Joe Cole leaves.
Manchester Utd face competition from Manchester City,Arsenal,Chelsea,Real Madrid & Barcelona for the signatures of Karim Benzema of Lyon and Carlos Tevez of Manchester Utd
As for managers , i understand Man Utd are eyeing up former Manchester City player, and Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson

Further to a previous post I can confirm that Richard Branson is indeed in preliminary talks with Gillette about possibly buying his share in Liverpool FC.
The world wide branding and sponsorship of both the kit and the new stadium are thought to be appealling to Branson and having looked at F1 as a possibility, LFC is seen as a better compliment to Virgins other businesses.
Liverpool's main summer target is Frank Ribery from Munich. He would cost around £30mil and around £100k/wk in wages.
Benitez also wants a Right–back and if possible a left back too.
He wants to get rid of Voronin, Dossena, Degen, Pennant and Itjande. He would consider selling the following for the following prices:
Alonso (18mil+) Replaced by Barry (12–14mil)
Yossi Benayoun (8mil+) Replaced by Kuba (8mil)
