    Time for 1 more to come in....Cattermole perhaps?!!!

    Not sure how accurate this may be but have been told to 'watch this space' so to speak....could be news of Lee Cattermole's arrival by the weekend. Just wondering what others will make of this n will he fit into the LFC way of playing. He's certainly a fighter with plenty of get in there n do a job, but does he posses the quality we require?........let's wait n c!!

    • Why Cattermole, not good enough IMO.#
      This is fact! as Rafa would put it.

      We had 20 mill initally to spend.
      We spent 10 mill on Johnson (rest coming from what pompy owed us for Crouchie).
      We sell Arbeloa and a few fringe players with the totall rising to around 6 million.
      So that's 16, we sell Xabi for 30 rising to 34 million.

      So that gives us 50 mill give or take a few quid.
      Aguilani has cost us 18(subject to passing a very strict medical).

      That leaves us 32 mill.

      Distin will come in four 4 mill as Sami's replacement.

      The 28 will be used for Silva if not 20 mill will be used for Mata and 8 kept back for Jan if needed.

      That is what will happen.

    • He's a terrific battler, good distribution and always in the game. Seen him on numerous occasions up north here---Steve Bruce still wants him so Benitez better get his arse moving.

      • The thing is he reminds me a lot of our very own Jay Spearing. With Aquilani and Masch in the holding roles with Lucas, Spearing and Plessis as cover I dont think we need him.Riera is covered by Babel, Kuyt by Benayoun, Gerrard by Benayoun and Torres by Ngog, Voronin and Nemeth. I think that just shows that the problems are either a wide right player or a forward of either description. Must be a £10-15m signing coming up!
        Realistically I would like to see Tuncay or someone similar.
