      I sincerely hope you add to your title winning medals whilst at Liverpool.

      Good point that. Only player in the LFC squad to have an English league medal? Let's hope it's catching.

      Welcome aboard the red machine Johnno!

      EXCLUSIVE: RAFA ON GLEN JOHNSON
      Jimmy Rice 26 June 2009  
        Rafa Benitez took five minutes to chat to Liverpoolfc.tv about his first major acquisition ahead of the 2009-10 season.  
       


      Why did you decide to bring Glen Johnson to the club?  
      We were thinking about bringing in players with quality - that's the first thing. He is also English and that is important for the Champions League list. We were thinking about improving the team and Johnson is a very good player who will do that.
        
      What will he give us?  
      He was important at Chelsea and in the last year at Portsmouth he has improved and is much better. One of the main things is his mentality - it's really good. He is a winner. I was impressed with the conversations I had with him. He wants to improve.
        
      Does he represent value for money?  
      We knew the market was going to be difficult this summer and some of it has been crazy. Manchester City and Chelsea were there - they were making offers. We had to be quick and the club acted quickly. It was down to the player whether he chose us or City or Chelsea and he chose us. It was very clear from talking to him that he wanted to play for Liverpool.
        
      What does this mean for Alvaro Arbeloa?
        
      Arbeloa was a good player for us last year. The thing is, he has one year left on his contract. We have offered him an extension and we're talking. He is our player but if there is a good offer we have to consider it. We have two or three clubs asking about him. He would like to stay but he knows the competition will be hard.
        
      Can fans expect any more signings?
        
      We are working and trying to bring new players in but we are happy with the squad we have at the moment. We were thinking about improving and with Johnson we have improved. Like I have already said, we could buy one more player without selling anyone. We now have to wait.

      Welcome glen, its always a good sign having a player with the surname

      JOHNSON

      Welcome Glen Johnson, you're now officially a Red. I think this guy is good, he has the pace, he's technically gifted and he scores goals, pity about the price though. Rafa has a way of improving players, if he can improve Glen over the coming years he will turn him into one helluva player, Glen is a good player already.....

      What I like about this transfer is that he had options open to him, but he chose us. When you consider the fact that the other two clubs in for him were Manchester City and Chelsea, I have troubling believing we were offering him the highest wage.

      He's young and ambitious, and surrounded by the quality of players and coaches we have he can only get better.

      Very true, its good to see there is some people with common sense and pride in this day and age of cheques stating where you play.

      Also probably came here because we are the ones who are going to win the title next season ;)

      Welcome Glen, i sincerely hope you live up to yours and ours expectations, and more :)

      Welcome to Liverpool Glen Quality addition him and the dirkinator on the right hand side seems very good to me as when Johnson makes surging runs up the right the dirkinator will be there filling in the void and tracking back for him as dirk never shirks. Hope we can keep Arbeloa also for strength in depth or we are just back to square one looking for a right back.

      All we need now is for us to Draw and knock out Mourhino's Milan in the Champions League and for Johnson to get Man of the Match in Both Legs and i'm sue that will be the icing on the cake for Johnson and a two finger salute to Mourhino for the way he treat him at Chelski

      Im sure he will for all the questions about his defensive game, when he's attacking the Durkinator will be tracking back and filling the void making tackles etc as Durk does i think they will complement each other and i'm looking forward to seeing them in tandem

      I see masch as the one who covers for Glen's runs with Dirk pushing into the box.

      welcome to the greatest club on the planet lad, im sure we've bought a player who wil improve our right side and as long as he does the buisiness on the pitch people will forget very quickly about the price tag. :aaliverpoolwz0:
