Liverpool Message Board
A few names in the hat still, just thought we could run through the runners and riders:
Clint Dempsey - Told Villa to suck his texan balls, he is officially stripping his pram of all toys until LFC offer the extra 28p to make the deal happen. Effectively a free player witht he amount of shirts and attention he will attract in the USA.
Daniel Sturridge - Apparently stuttering over Andre Schurles delaying move to Chelsea. From what I have heard, the deal is in place but cant be confirmed till Schurle rubber stamps.
Leandro Damiao - Not sure how much truth there is, it appears his agent is going bananas trying to get him a move, offering him around with a 3m loan fee with an additional 13m final fee at end of season, that sounds a risk worth taking surely?
Huntelaar, Llorente, Ramirez, Kaka - no, that is all.
Oh no you've said the "D" name. You've done it now Hobs. Jason will be shot into millions of pieces by a Spursbabe.
Could be a good one though eh?
I don't understand the Dempsey delay either but surely it will happen.
I'd be surprised at Sturridge tbh but hey what do I know. Bottom of the predictions league already

I thought we'd walked away from Dempsey but I think it's as you say - hardball, take it or leave it. Harsh but that's business.
teh Sturridge thing has gone quiet it seems. Not saying it won't happen but haven't seen anything more.
Damiao would be a nice coup. It would give some real spice to the squad.
A spine of Reina, Skrtel, Agger, Allen, Sahin, Gerrard, Suarez and Damiao looks quite tasty. It's almost Sofa World stuff
ha ha, think they are really hardballing over Dempsey, if he comes in and we have saved £4m then it all makes sense I guess. I dont think the Damiao one will happen but Rodgers did say he wants at least 3 strikers, depends if he considers Sturridge and Dempsey as strikers I guess!

I think so, thats why it has gone down to deadline day. He only wanted to go LFC so they obviously baulked at the asking price, doesnt matter if someone else comes in for him, if he isnt interested then he isnt interested. Now Fulham have the choice of him skulking around the training ground getting paid £40k a week till December when he can negotiate a deal with anyone for free or drop the fee radically and take what money they can now. Al Fayed could on principle make him play in the reserves but I am sure they would rather have £4-5m now then lose out completely.
