      hope we can get this deal done or get him sold within the week as we cant afford for sales to drag on, players BR doesnt want need to be gone ASAP so there not around those he does want putting out negative vibes etc. hence why Sterling needs to be sorted this week also.

      Fabio Borini was linked with a move to Italy, with reliable reports claiming a deal had been agreed between Liverpool and Lazio for a season-long loan with a set purchase at the end of it. Borini, though, blocked the move by demanding wages the Serie A side could not match, and they withdrew their offer.

      Now, rumour has it another potential suitor has backed off Borini due to wage demands, with the Daily Mail claiming West Ham are abandoning their pursuit of the striker. Late last month, reports claimed the Hammers were lining up an £8M bid for Borini, and fans were hopeful a London destination could tempt the striker.

      It appears unlikely to pan out, though, at least if the rumours are to be believed. And while it might normally be hard to believe rumours from the Mail, when those rumours are that Fabio Borini has priced himself out of a move they’re all too easy to take at face value given the 24-year-old’s stalled transfer history.

      It also adds up to a situation where it’s easy to see Borini stuck at Anfield as the transfer window winds down despite that it’s been made abundantly clear to the player he isn’t in Brendan Rodgers’ plans. Last summer, a case could be made Borini was brave to stay and fight for a place. This year, there is no positive way to spin it.

      If Liverpool are willing to subsidise a temporary departure, though, there could be a home for Borini with "The Chosen One" at Real Sociedad. After failing to land Danny Ings on a free when he instead signed for the Reds, rumour in Spain has Sociedad eyeing Borini as a stop-gap solution—if Liverpool will pay some of his wages.

      It’s far from ideal, perhaps, but if it’s true Borini’s demands have scared off West Ham now, it could be all Liverpool are left with. At least if they don’t want to be stuck paying his entire wages for him to stick around at Anfield when he clearly isn’t wanted.

      F***ing c**t.

      For f**king 2 years I've been calling him a money grabbing piece of sh*t and time and time again people defend him. Story after story after story of him rejecting people because he wants ridiculous money. Lost out on 12 million and people said it wasn't about the money for him. Lost out on 8 million and no doubt people will still jump to his defence. What is it going to take for people to open their eyes and see this slimy little b***ard for what he is.

      Some fuckwits here are blaming the manager for the fraud still being on the books!!
      The only reason him and his agent still cling to the club like the f**king leeches they are is money.
      Him and his agent are down for a massive cut in wages when he is shipped out to some struggling Prem outfit or a lower league status here or Europe.
      They both know it and prefer to sit on their arses with hands outstretched rather than have a f**king go.

      Can you really blame him? If I had a contract with my employer and they tried to ship me off somewhere else and force me to take a pay cut I'd dig in my heels. Footballers have about a 15 year window that they can use their abilities to earn as much money as possible. I don't blame him for not wanting to take a pay cut....

      It sucks that we're stuck with him, but I don't resent him for it. He's looking out for himself just like everyone else on here would.

      You're right, but do you think after his contract is ran up in two years, he's going to be offered the same money that is on his table right now? He wasn't even a bench warmer last season. He was virtually non existent. Add another two years of obscurity to that, he is going to be lucky to end in a Serie B, earning a fifth of what he can make for at least another couple of years at Sunderland or West Ham.

      Cuntish or conservative, he is being stubborn and stupid either way.

      said he wasn't good enough when he signed.  continued to say it when he put in terrible performance after terrible performance.  said he was useless and we needed to get rid of him.  of course I got slaughtered.  "too negative, he's young," blah blah blah.

      and lo and behold, I was right.

      and not only is he a terrible footballer but he's got no respect for the club or himself, happy to sit around and do nothing for another season while we pay the wages we never should've given him in the first place---wages no one else will pay him because they know he's not worth it.

      Think of all the money that was spent on him---his ridiculous fee, plus his wages---in the last few years.  And think of how that money could've been better spent. 

      It's just shocking, the way the club is run.

      The fact that the player massively under performs making a joke of his original fee more than justifies the ensuing repercussions any professional footballer would be subject to.
      A footballer who fails to make the grade consistently in the eyes of the coach, his team-mates and the manager is benched/plays reserve/loaned out until there is a tangible improvement in his game.

      Any conscientious player would see his shortcomings and for the eventual good of the club take the measures in good spirit, striving to up his game and attain the standard required. 
      It is patently obvious Borini and his agent possess none of those qualities.

      To shift any onus for the above onto any other individual is perverse and implies an agenda.

      Thing is though Harry we weren't expecting him to take a paycut to move, both Sunderland and QPR offered him a lot more than he's on here but he wanted more than they were offering.  I think he's on about £40k a week here and they offered something like £55/60k and he wanted nearer £70k.

      He said he would only move to an Italian Club, now 2 different Italian clubs have come in for him and he still doesn't want to go.  I think he just enjoys the prestige of being a Liverpool player even though he never plays. 

      Personally I'd just pay up his contract and leave him too.

      how can you not blame him?!

      It just shows that Rodgers had no clue about the club when he came here.  The owners knew even less, so they just assumed that the people they hired would make the best decisions.

      The issue is that Borini was NEVER going to be a Liverpool quality player.  When a manager moves up to a bigger club, his targets have to change.  Top players for top clubs.  You don't bring the same f**king player you brought to Swansea, when they were in the Championship, to Liverpool, a team trying to win the league.

      But Rodgers didn't care.  He wanted to bring his small club mentality to Liverpool.  Don't forget that that summer we also tried to sign Ashley Williams, Sigurdsson, Vorm etc.  He literally tried to turn us into a small club by importing small club players.

      So is it any surprise, what Borini is doing?  of course not.  The same thing happened with Downing.  They knew they had hit the jackpot, some numpties thought they were good enough to play for our club, gave them ridiculous wages.  of course they're going to take advantage of it!  "Oh, you only NOW realized I'm not good enough?  oh ok, sure, I'll go away quietly and take a paycut, no problem."  yea right.  They're getting paid above their station and they know it.  You want rid of them you have to give them the money they are rightfully owned, as per the idiotic contracts that were put in front of them.

      So don't blame Borini.  Blame Rodgers, FSG and the other buffoons who were too thick to see that they were sh*te and were never going to be worthy of our great club.

      I would have thought if he runs his contract down it will hurt him more financially having not played regular football for a couple of years, who would be willing to offer him a decent contract?
      Maybe he is just not interested in playing football anymore what with his lovely wife also earning a nice packet.

      Every manager makes mistakes - Ferguson, Dalglish whoever, nobody can predict the future therefore I can only put you in the fuckwit category in the light of your naivety and short sightedness.
      Borini is the pr**k in the ointment, sitting on his arse with his hand out unprofessionally prepared to carry on with that instead of looking to continue a playing role at a suitable level.

      So how do you just excuse the 'caged lion' comments about how Fabio is just dying to get out and play football? Then he goes and turns down any chance of playing first team? He's a hypocrite.

      Look I don't disagree that he shouldn't have been signed, what a terrible decision my god. But at the same time you say 'you can't blame him'... Are you off your nut? Of course you can blame him. There is no excuse for being a c**t. He's a professional footballer, you'd think he'd want to be playing football. He is literally throwing a career he's been working on since he could walk for a couple of thousand more a week. Don't you see how sad that is? Don't you think his agent should slap him and say 'wake up kid'? Instead he's encouraging him to stay and take the money.

      What kind of attitude is that? I hope he rots away in Serie B and I bet his big shot agent won't stick around with him there. BR showed faith in him, for whatever reason I don't know he's signed him a few times now for different teams... And now Borini pays him back with this display of pure apathy and greed? I suppose you think that's a normal human reaction Fed? Speaks a lot.

      west ham were ready to pay £8M for him but backed off after hearing what he was asking as wage packet
       what the f*ck does he want?
       he is happy earning the money while sitting a couple of times on the bench and most of the time on the terraces
