      Alonso won't be coming back to the prem

      It's prob easier to focus on targets that are actually realistic and that we have a chance of getting

      you obviously cant read, rodgers said we need experience, xabi said hes open to a return i mean how difficult do we have to make it to be successful again????

      Xabi said he misses us 2 years ago

      Why build up your expectations for us to get Xabi then when it obviously doesn't happen you will start to have tantrums around the forum

      Madrid for one won't sell him - lets not forget that small little detail

      Xabi can say lots of things - what actually happens is a different matter

      Be realistic ok. Alonso isn't going to leave Madrid

      Ah.. this romance for our ex-players again...!

      Getting Xabi on a free transfer "may be" fine, may be a 2-year deal and if the wages are acceptable for our structure but would still doubt it considering FSG's stern NO to 30+ players.. There was ONE Gary McAllister and that's it..

      It would be a wiser option to start playing Sahin regularly in his preferred deep-lying play-maker role and guess what, he could be the one who fills Xabi's void

      Demba Ba talks broken down apparently. He must be holding out for a mega deal.

      That's a good signing for Reading - I remember this lad 4/5 years ago.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/20879287
      Reading sign Sporting Lisbon captain Daniel Carrico

      Reading have signed Sporting Lisbon captain Daniel Carrico.

      The 24-year-old former Portugal Under-21 defender has signed an initial 18-month contract, with the option of a further year after that.

      Carrico, who had made only two appearances for Sporting this season because of his contractual situation, will join the Royals later this week. He wrote an open letter to Sporting's fans on the club's official website.

      "It is with mixed emotions that I write this farewell message," it read. "I'm leaving the club of my heart, where I had the privilege of graduating through the youth ranks and serving for several years.

      "I'm leaving because I understand that I am at a stage in my career when I have to take chances. Moreover, the proposed project is extremely exciting to me and know I can succeed."

      Reading are second-bottom of the Premier League, five points adrift of safety. They face Spurs at White Hart Lane on New Year's Day, before facing West Brom.

      Carrico was out of contract in June, with Reading paying £609,000 for him, according to the Portuguese side.

      A Reading statement read: "Carrico is a versatile player who can play in the centre of defence as well as in midfield."

      BRENDAN RODGERS HAS BUCKS TO BUY DANIEL STURRIDGE IN £40M SHAKE-UP
      Brendan Rodgers wants to bring Sturridge to Anfield


      Brendan Rodgers wants to bring Sturridge to Anfield

      Sunday December 23,2012
      By Phil Cadden

      Comment Speech Bubble Have your say(0)

      BRENDAN RODGERS will be handed £40million by his board as he prepares to overhaul his Liverpool team.

      The Reds boss has convinced owners Fenway Sports Group he needs big money for the task.

      And after being impressed with Rodgers’ management skills in a testing six months in charge, the Americans are ready to open the cheque book. First through the door will be Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge in a £12m deal that should be tied up in the first week in January when the transfer window opens.

      And he will be followed into Anfield by Blackpool’s Thomas Ince as Rodgers attempts to bring back the 20-year-old let go for a pittance by Kenny Dalglish 18 months ago.

      Including wages and the rise handed to 18-year-old winger Raheem Sterling this week – said to be from £2,000 to £40,000 a week – those deals will eat up nearly two thirds of the budget.

      ì

      î

      But there will still be enough left for Rodgers to swoop for Birmingham’s goalkeeper Jack Butland.

      The youngster has already played for England, and the Kop boss sees him a perfect replacement for Pepe Reina, who is now 30.

      And the rest of the cash will be splashed out on snapping up French defender Nicolas Isimat Mirin. The stopper, 21, is available for a cut-price fee as he only has 18 months remaining on his deal at French Ligue 1 club Valenciennes.

      Rodgers could raise more money if he can offload players but there have been few takers for the likes of former Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing and ex-Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson.

      See we're still persisting with this bollocks about including wage rises as part of any "war chest" stumped up by our generous owners. What about all the wages Brendan has saved? Include those, and he's spending the equivalent to Starbucks Uk tax bill over the last decade.

      I agree, wage rises shouldn't be part of any transfer monies.

      Wasn't having a pop at you mate, sorry if it came accross that way. It's a tendency that's crept into discussions about our spending only over the last four or five years.

      Oh, no, didn't see it that way at all, I was merely trumpeting what you said. Albeit in a decidely generic way :)

      That's one reason I thought the article was interesting, in how the numbers were being tossed about.

      My only concern about the players we have been linked to, no matter how tenuous is that they are mostly attackers. Still feel we need a creative midfielder.

      So if we hypothetically gave credence to every single player linked to us, then our best case scenario first XI come February 1 could be:


      Reina
      Johnson Skrtel Agger Enrique
      Lucas Gerrard
      Sneijder
      Walcott Gameiro Suarez


      Not bad if you ask me.   xxxxx:action-smiley-065:

      One of the very few English player I'd love to see play for us mate, but seem it's not happen.
      If it's me, try our best to offload Cole and Downing free the wage for Walcott. I also would use money that rumored we will spend on Tom Ince for Walcott instead.
      Only thing to worry about Walcott is his injuries record, but it's worth a risk imho.

      But the thing is if he is available big clubs will be there for him. I don't think we have either financial or CL attraction to compete with the likes of chelsea,city and utd. I would like to see him at arsenal than him playing for utd or chelsea.

      But IMHO mate, IF and big IF LFC let him know we truly want him and try enough to sign him then we has better chance to get him. With us he will have less competitors than at Chelsea, City, Utd and even at Arsenal.
      Re UCL I believe we should persuade him to come and help us make it, UCL and aim for EPL title.

      Another point is I'm not sure how him (and the world) think about LFC under BR and FSG, and that's one major factor for player decision to join us or not.

      And, HNY everyone RED bothers and sisters :D

      Seems strangely quiet. Really thought we'd have heard something on Sturridge by now....I had really hoped we would have had some business sorted very early in the window. We don't have time to be dragging transactions out until the end of the month.

      Newcastle United FC ‏@NUFCOfficial

      #NUFC have given Demba Ba permission to speak to Chelsea. As a result he won't be included in tonight's squad. More on http://nufc.co.uk

      Newcastle United can confirm that Chelsea Football Club has made an official offer for Demba Ba which has triggered the release clause in the player's contract. The Club has given the player permission to speak to Chelsea FC and therefore he will not be included in the squad for tonight's game against Everton.
