    ^ I read this also. :sad:

    Probably the right decision as he has hardly played for Liverpool this season, and has not made the most of his limited oppertunities. But he is still very much a favourite of the fans. I saw him outside of the stadium in Istanbul 2005, and he was given lots of respect and a few songs.

    Liverpool are set to sign Brazilian midfielder Lucas Levia from Gremio. The 20 year old will join the reds at the start of next season. (Liverpool FC website).

    Personally, I've never heard of him.

    If the rumours are true Huntelaar of Ajax could be on his way to Man Utd (scum.....cough.....cough) that would be scary.

    Yes it would. The man made 50 goals last season, 36 goals this season.. with two games to play. But I think it's just rumours; Barcelona was mentioned, even AZ was mentioned a while ago. I don't think Scheeringa would have 15-20 million euros though.

    As for Sneijder.. Valencia and Barça sent delegations to Amsterdam.

    Hardly footballing genius to know that he's not up to the mark. I'm pretty sure that anyone other than Gled Roeder could see that.

    I hope Everton don't sell Arteta. We could do with Robbie Keane too. And maybe Michael Owen will come back to his Dad's club (unlikely). Plus Robbie Fowler was a boyhood Evertonian, as much as I hate him (although he must qualify in the top 10 for world's ugliest footballer). He's past it now, too much coke probably. I prefer Pepsi.

    EDIT: Pepsi comes in a blue bottle of course!

    Sidwell confirmed move to Chelsea - bad move for him in my opinion, I have met and chatted to him in WHSmith a few times in town and he seemed a down to earth bloke, Im just not convinced he is top four material after watching him all season. Definitely a top half team, I expected him to go to Villa or Spurs.
