Quite hopeless defence + threatless front..... think they'll end up at most mid of table at the end of season.

A battling display, which I will take any day...

Rafa really needs to think about changes to the way the team plays...we are too predictable to trouble other teams. If we are on-form, then the other teams will have to worry about us. With out form and injuries, it's just so easy to pick us apart, so we need to surprise tactically...

Babel in the same class as Huntelaar?  ;D

Alex Fickleson & ARSEne Wanker were monitoring & chasing Huntelaar before he went to Real. If the rumors were true, then
I would welcome Huntelaar to compliment Torres & revert to the 4-3-1-2 system. Then Aquilani play where if gerrard is fit?

Is there really dressing room discord or just the usual sh*t-stirring by British media...in a period where Liverpool should be huddling together and working out the problems...we have quotes from Carra last week about how he doesn't mind if he leaves Liverpool in the future...now Torres being quoted about wanting to see world class transfers before he considers his future (yeah, where are we gonna find the funds for these cos there sure aren't many white knights left around)...and Captain Marvelous is sulking on the pitch it seems...our expensive summer signing has recovered from injuries but not playing regularly in this tough times due to some inexplicable reasons from the gaffer...

On the recent links of new managers...can they do better? Perhaps a new face may strike something in the players to play better for a while but that is a short-term solution at best. Medium-term the club is still saddled with the American owners who, if not changed, I am afraid is going to lead us into the dark ages...

"Into the dark ages"?  I would have thought arguably your lot are already half-way there, 20 years without a title; although you do have the consolation of one ECL win.

All this Pompey nonsense at least seems to have focused minds on the ownership and debt levels of clubs.  Personally I hope they quickly come up with something that prohibits leveraged buyouts (i.e what the Glazers did to ManYoo, and the other Yanks sort-of did with Pool), so that buyers must secure their own loans and can't dump it onto the club.  Then it wouldn't happen to Arsenal  :P

Real Madrid want Liverpool boss Benitez

Spanish report: Real Madrid want Liverpool boss Benitez to replace Pellegrini

http://www.gfdb.com/NewsItem.197736.Spanish-report-Real-Madrid-want-Liverpool-boss-Benitez-to-replace-Pellegrini.aspx

This should serve as a welcome news to take away Benitez without having LFC to pay hefty sum to sack him.

On the other hand, if the current interested investor could really inject capital to dilute the American ownership and provide the much needed funds for new signing, new coach and new stadium, then things will be moving in the right direction, and then ....

You'll never walk alone.... towards light at the end of the tunnel !!

And that's the big question, isn't it?  "King" Kenny?  Maureen-Yo?  (But he's just waiting for SAF to retire.)

Have any recently retired (i.e. in the last 10 years or so) Liverpool players become managers?  Offhand I can think of Paul Ince, but I'm pretty sure your lot don't want him as manager.

Not sure how the finances work but from reading a particular report, the current co-owners are required by their banks to reduce the debt by 100mio pounds. Coincidentally the new injection sought is about 40% stake of about 110-120mio pounds.

It means diluting their share to 30% each but where is new money to be found for players, let alone stadium etc..

If the banks just want to lower their risks with the current owners but not the club, the debt- equity ratio of the newly structured club will then be much lower, enabling it to raise funding to carry out its improvement plans.
