  Tom Hicks CANNOT block any attempt buy George Gillett to sell his stake. At the end of the day Hicks OWNS 50 percent and so does Gillett so it's entirely up to Gillett if he sells his stake and to who, he owns his own 50 percent stake. Hicks is the one totally ruining our beloved footy club and we need him gone A. S. A. P not Gillett. The only thing Hicks can do is have forst refusal on Gillett's stake, whether he wants to buy it or not, he cannot block ANYTHING. DIC will buy Gillett out then followed buy Hicks as Hicks cannot afford to run the club on his own and pay for the stadium on his own. Hicks may stay for a while, but DIC will soon get fed up of his useless knowledge and remove him, they have more financial power than him A LOT MORE.

  Messi to Man United. he will not move to Old Trafford because the Glazer's family will not allow that instead they will restructure Cristiano's contract, they will make him the highest paid player in football in the world.

There are also some rumors that the Glazer's want to be a succesful owners and they want more silverwares specially the Champions league. They will upport what ever to get that title

And regarding Gillet and Hicks (Liverpool) word here is that they are already talking to sports consultants here in Florida how to deal with their disagreements with Rafa, team and themsleves.

  Liverpool are attracting some deffender in Bundisliga and that is Rafinha of Shalke 04. Rafa send scouts in the Champions League match against Porto to check out Quaresma and Rafinha as their main targets. David Villa is also another target of Rafa too. Garay will sign for FC Barcelona in Summer so they are no swoop for him. Karim Benzema is the most shopping list player in the transfer window but Liverpool will not buy him. Maybe Arsenal and Man United will have more percent age in buying. Rafa does not want much wingers because Babel, Benayoun, and Pennant are the main wingers. They are no signing such as David Silva, David Albelda, Vicente, and Joaquin from Valencia. Andriy Voronin will maybe finish his career in Anfield in the this Summer and clubs in Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Italy, and Spain are all interested. Players like Harry Kewell, Sami Hyypia, and Peter Crouch must seal off new contracts to extend their careers at Anfield but Peter Crouch will have more chance than those two. Arsenal will buy 3–4 more players such as Jeremy Menez, Simir Nasri, Johann Gourcuff, Hatem Ben Arfa, Karim Benzema, Dimitrov, and other youngster all around the world.

Simir Nasri Mom come to London for to play for Fulham and invited Nasri to come to Fulham Reserve.

  Inter will offer Villareal 12 Million Euros + Hernan Crespo for Guiseppe Rossi. Freddie Ljunberg is Wanted by German giants Bremen and Hamburg SV. Dani Alves will once again be on Liverpool's radar, a £22 million pound bid will be made. –MB–
