OK i wasn't sure what all that was about with a takeover bid..

Well hopefully Liverpool and GH will make some better signings with the cash this time..

You think a few might go?

jesus i hope a lot of players will go. but i was saying the same thing last year and no-one left. there's an unbelievable amount of dead wood. it will be a blow to houllier's ego to sell off 5 to 10 players he has bought though, so i cant see a major clear out.

mexes and van der vaart might be coming, but theyve got better options. were not the club we once were.

Van Der Vaart? No way will he come to us, he's fantastic and every big club will be after him.

What about Guily or however ya spell it from monaco...He is a good midfielder and it seems like a few clubs are interested in him?

yes, i know who you mean and he looks good, but ive grown very suspicious of attacking midfielders who look good in france after the signing of bruno 'the new zidane' cheyrou.

shaun wright-phillips is houllier's main target, but man city want £10m for him, and he's not worth that.

10 mill thats way to much for him more like 3-4 in todays market...

He is a good little player and has come on alot this season in a pretty piss poor team..

So what's the deal with Heskey? GH seems to love him but i think he's pretty crap lol!

heskey doesnt deserve the # the national media give him, but he's not good enough for liverpool. he's a confidence striker rather than a gifted striker. and his attitude is getting worse, he's always moaning and sulking and he goes down like he's got a major injury several times a game.

he just hasnt got it, and everyone knew that before we signed him. im hoping for about £6m for him in the summer.

Well i hope you get it for him but who is going to buy him? I never rated him even when they keep picking him for England.

You need a target man but he is not the answer as you say.

looks like the possibility of the thai pm investing in the club is back on. strange really considering we rejected a similar offer from steve morgan, a man who knows and cares about the club. but of course, david moores doesnt like mr morgan, and who cares about the future of the club as long as moores keeps his friends around him.

the man failed to sack souness, evans, and now houllier when it was obvious they could take the club no further and redeveloped 3 sides of the ground and then decided to move away. the club had no-one even vaguely forward thinking until rick parry came in. and i wont even get started on that yuppie 'new fan' capitalist.

dear me, im sounding more like a villa fan by the day. at least 4th is sewn up.

Yeah you got the 4th place so thats not to bad.

I read that The Sunday Express reports that Shinawatra will sign a deal tomorrow after agreeing to invest £65 million in the club. I don't know how true that is.

yes, ive heard 65m for about 25% of the club. he'll also build an academy in thailand and put in more money a year.

i hope he does buy in, if only because it'll make the close season exciting. although you just know we'll end up buying 20 2m rated french central midfielders, all rated as 'the new vieira'.

Thats alot of money and could buy quite a few players if spent wisely. I hope for your sake they don't make the mistakes they made before with their signings. I know every team does it but Liverpool made some bad ones.

He's right though, we'll buy all french players, all rated at 2m and they'll be the "new Zidane's", "new Viera", "New Henry" and they'll all by shyte.

Yea i guess your right but would the likes of Gerrard and Owen put up with that?. They will be looking at the manager and the club to bring in some top players if there is to be a substantial amount of money being made available.

Owen is going at the end of the season, there's no doubt about that. GH was quoted today that Owen will be going to Europe either this year or in two years time, but he will go.

I am definately convinced it's this season from the amount of strikers GH has looked at already.

None of them will be a decent replacement though.

Well to be honest i don't know if it will be a good move or not. He is a awesome striker when he is fit. Fit being the key word. There is plenty of decent strikers out there that would be willing to come to Liverpool.

There's a bit of a problem with that though TRD. Sure there are other good strikers out there, but GH came in 5 years ago and built the team AROUND Owen. If he is removed wont the whole foundation fall down? I think I might be being a bit paranoid but I do worry about Owen going. I don't think anyone can fill them shoes...well...none that would actually come to us anyway.

As i said i don't know if it would be a good move. But one man doesn't make a team.

Just a thought doesn't it make you think that if Liverpool did or have been revovling around Owen that might be the answer to you not doing that well. I look at it from a neutral point of view and i know how good Owen can be. But what you are saying is that take him away and Liverpool are shyte? Man i can't see that happening maybe your being a little bit too paranoid. lol!

Paranoid? Take a look at the goal returns from all the players at Liverpool in the last 5 years. That should tell you if I'm paranoid or not. lol

Well it's down to the manager and who he buy's if Owen does depart. I mean Heskey is not going to get you 20 + goals a season. Maybe look at the manager and it may be time for him to go!
