Liverpool will do just one big sign and some squad signings like menez from Monaco, rafinha from shalke, Nasri from Marseille (not sure) and the big one, David Silva from Valencia. With Martin, insua and nemeth breaking in the frist team. Going I tink will be itandje and Riise to Valencia, Voronin to shalke or Werder bremen, Crouch to Manchester City or Tottenham, Carson to Aston Villa and Pennant to Portsmouth.

  Liverpool are looking to buy.

One of these Full–backs:

Rafinha, JoLeon LeScott, Glen Johnson, Javier Garrido Behobide, Liam Rosenior, Chris Gunter, Daniel Alves the Silva, Urby Emanuelson.

One of these Wingers:

Samir Nasri, Ashley Young, David Bentley, Giles Barnes, Rafael Augusto Sóbis, Ricardo Quaresma, Joaquin Sanchez Rodríguez, Wesley Sneijder

One of these Centre–Midfielders:

Jamie O'Hara, Diego Ribas, Marc Crosas Luque, Gareth Barry

and one of these Strikers:

Obafemi Akinwunmi Martins, Adriano, Peter Odemwingie, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Robbie Keane, Lukas Podolski

Thank you for Reading. = ) S10

  Keegan has been given the deadly vote of confidence by Ashley who is currently the target of most of his Tottenham mates jokes but he has given KK two more matches to pull his finger out and the rest of the team and start moving up. Wise will become a more hands on while Keegan will move sideways but the big news is that Ashley is trying to get Mancini from Inter with a little help from his powerful broker mates, crazy I know but he needs a name that will attract players and when Martins does not know who KK is then is time to worry, maybe.

  Have to agree in part with earlier post. Alan McGregor is definitely Scotlands best now and if Gordon went for £9 million then he's at least £10 million, but he's still just behind Boruc for all round best.

Anyway on to The Hoops – With a current first team squad of 34 players, a number that will not differ much for next season, Strachan/lawell will get rid of high–earner/bit–part players.

Out – M Brown/Caldwell–Balde–Pressley/Sno–Gravesen–Donati–Nakamura (maybe)/JVoH–Riordan–Killen. The sales from this lot should bring in around £12 million (incredible eh.) With 11 out Strachan will promote 8 from reserves, these to include Fox/Caddis–Ross/Conroy–Millar/O'Brien–McGowan–O'Carroll. Loan deals for some of these and current first team youngsters will mean around six signings, two defenders, 3 midfielders, one forward. Look for the following to be targeted – Kadlec–O'Hara (Tottenham) –Van Buyten/Patrick McCourt (Derry City) – Mark Noble–Kevin MacDonald (Dundee) – James Milner–Stephen Hunt/Shane Long–Kevin Doyle/Dave Kitson. Strachan admires Coppell and Reading and thinks any of these guys would be great addition. – INSIDECELTICFC. Hail Hail, still in the Hunt for 3–in–a–row

Aaron Lennon

  D. I. C and Hicks is clearly not workable now, Robert Craft could reignite his interest, but I hear the price is too much. After 90 days Gillett can sell to whoever he pleases so D. I. C will storm in and buy the full 100 percent. Players arriving in th Summer will be Rafinha, Lahm, Martinez, Menez and Villa. out will go Riise, Alonso, Finnan, Kewell, Crouch and Voronin. Cash.

  While Liverpool may be basking in the glory of reaching the Champions League quarter finals, they know that only winning the league can provide true satisfaction. To mount a serious challenge next season, the balance of the squad will have to be perfect. The following transactions would have to take place to enable that to happen:

INS – Kakha Kaladze (AC Milan)

Rafinha (FC Schalke 04)

Ricardo Quaresma (FC Porto)

OUTS – Charles Itandje

Sami Hyypia

Harry Kewell

Andriy Voronin

Go Reds.

  liverpool news–

Rafa has decided as of now the best system for him to use is that of the 4–2–3–1 considering his recent success and will look to buy players based on this particular system. As a result of this Peter Crouch will be sold. This will call upon the arrival of Oscar treja from Mallorca

Rafa has been alerted by the availability of Aaron Lennon and considering he is only 20 years of age he has become an important target. Another target is David Silva but price can be a block. Also someone who can be rotated when Gerrard needs a rest will be bought who will be Javi Martinez from Athletic Bilbao.

Also Riise will be sold and coming in will be Philippe Lahm. Apart from that they will also sign Rafinha




Voronin–3 million

Crouch–10 million

Carson–10 million

Guthrie–4 million

Riise–6 million


Oscar Treja–8 million

Silva–18 million

Lennon–10 million

Rafinha–10 million

Lahm–15 million

Net spending–28 million

  Karim Benzema knows OT is where he wants to be. He had to say what he said about wanting to stay at Lyon to please the fans. Also, Sir Alex is likely to try and wrangle Klaas Jan Huntelaar away from Ajax Amsterdam. Danny Welbeck and Rodrigo are likely to be promoted up the ranks, so that may mean that Saha and probably Fletcher and O'Shea will leave. Also, young Ghanaians Anthony Annan of IK Start will join Chelsea on the advice of Essien, and Real Madrid's Dan Opare will leave, with Liverpool the most likely target. Arsenal will sign Dede Ayew from Marseille and probably Hatem Ben Arfa from Lyon. – GH–

  Liverpool will sign David Bentley in the Summer and will offer Jermaine Pennant as makeweight in the deal. Rafael Benitez will also sign Sergio Aguero, Rafinha and Gabriel Heinze.
