HUZZAH!!

"My commitment and loyalty to the club and to the fans is the same as it was on my first day when I signed. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead," Torres said. "I am really happy to be back, really happy to stay with all my team-mates.

"This is the best club in the country so the targets and expectations are always high. At Liverpool the aim is to fight for every title. It was difficult last season, but we are sure we can improve this season."

I guess if he finally does buy Liverpool, the English press will label him 'the new King Kenny'?

'I'm at the best club' - Torres
« Reply #862 on: August 04, 2010, 10:21 »
This morning I heard the long-awaiting news on Class95.

And then quickly check: http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/latest-news/i-m-at-the-best-club

*whew*, at least for the time being. Yippie! at least till the next transfer window  8)

Why does this club mean so much to you?
From my first day I got the same welcome as Stevie or Carra or players who have been here for a long time. I felt at home from the first day, I feel the fans love me and everyone knows I am really happy here and really happy to play at Anfield. As I said earlier, I'm looking forward to starting the season and playing with my teammates and for the fans.


http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=811529&sec=england&cc=4716
Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from Anfield by insisting he is extremely happy to be at "the best club in the country".

A reality check from F365 mailbox:


"So they're holding onto a player who plays around 15 games a season and looked poor before he got injured, then was even worse in the World Cup (which Spain won despite him). They're also keeping their 30-year-old past-it captain, whose only real contribution to the game in recent times is having a bit of a tumble to win a penalty. And they've signed a player who's looked past it for a long while and again, is incredibly injury-prone.

Next they'll sign someone like James Beattie and you'll be saying it's their year!"

Well, Michael Owen was injury-prone too, and it could have been a result of rushing players back into action.

To me, one way of giving players sufficient time to recover from injuries is to have an able substitute. Rafa didn't/couldn't, and I suspect there may have been a few occasions when he risked Torres, since there was no-one else who he felt was reliable. Same for Gerrard.

As for Joe Cole, he was doing fine under Mourinho, so players need time to re-discover their form after being out with injuries, and Cole did have a bad injury last season. So the rehab on Chelsea's bill could be to our benefit.

In any case, I'm glad he stayed, and with news of potential new owners, some gloom will be lifted.

Liverpool aim to become world's richest club
« Reply #866 on: August 04, 2010, 14:22 »
*wow* *blink*  More and more icing on the cake before the start of season 10/11  ;D

Hopefully given Spore Chinese dominant society and 'close' tie with China, REDS will also set up an academy here  ;)

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=811609&sec=england&cc=4716
A Soccernet source has been given an insight into the ambitious plans to launch Liverpool in China, with internet, sponsorship and promotions aimed to push Liverpool beyond the means of even the richest clubs.

The source describes the plans as taking Liverpool to a scale as yet unseen in English football by tapping into the Chinese markets.

'Feel-good factor is back'
« Reply #867 on: August 04, 2010, 17:31 »
Quite an appropriate way to put it... all things start from within, a positive morale that is.


http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/latest-news/feel-good-factor-is-back

Since taking over at the Reds helm, Hodgson has had Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres commit their futures to the club, while landing arguably the transfer coup of the summer so far in Joe Cole.

And Rush believes there is a genuine air of positivity around Liverpool at the moment.

"Three or four weeks ago everything connected with the club was so negative," he said.

"But Roy Hodgson has come in and helped to transform the mood. He has already proved what a good manager he is.

"With Joe Cole signing, Steven Gerrard committing his future and now Torres following suit it's been a great few weeks for the club.

"Now there's a positive buzz and the supporters are optimistic about the new season."

... in short CIC moved 351 million sterling the last fortnight to prepare for a bid, the red army will have additional 1 billion fans :) and its nice to know you're being served by a LFC part owner down at the neighbourhood kopitiam :)
